We all remember when Natasha Richardson suddenly passed away after a skiing accident in 2009, and no one knows the sting of that tragedy more than her partner, Liam Neeson. He appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live this week, where he discussed an interview he gave with 60 minutes following Natasha’s death – an interview he says left out a very important detail.
“We got hundreds – maybe a couple thousand – sympathy cards, emails and stuff from all over the world, especially America,” he recalled. “Not one from that ski resort.”
That’s really terrible, and seems bad form, to be honest. After such a terrible tragedy, the least they could do is send a sympathy card. Clearly even such a small gesture would have meant a lot.

Oh, Shia LaBeouf, whatever will we do with you? After seemingly suffering a break from reality and then launching his “performance art” exhibition debut earlier this month in Los Angeles, you’d think things would be quieting down in his world… but alas, you’d be wrong. This time, however, the story isn’t really about him – it’s about his Uncle Barry, who apparently borrowed $800,000 from Shia and never repaid it. Well, now he has to, according to a Manhattan judge!
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Eileen Bransten rejected Barry Saide’s arguments that his actor nephew should accept Saide’s interest in four companies in lieu of cash. Saide’s investments were used as collateral for the 2009 loan.
“The terms of the note are clear and the amount due and owing … is forth in the note,” Bransten wrote in a decision signed Monday but posted Wednesday.
Saide, who is a maternal uncle, will have to pay interest of as much as 9% in accordance with the terms of the deal. The agreement required Saide to repay the loan in 15 installments of $53,333 but Bransten noted that Saide never repaid a dime.
Well, that seems fair. You know what they say: mo’ money, ‘mo’ problems!

Susan Sarandon is high on something…a little more “potent” than life!
The Oscar-winning actress, 67, stopped by Watch What Happens Wednesday and decided to answer Andy Cohen‘s question a little more honestly than we all anticipated. People reports:
When host Andy Cohen asked her to name one major Hollywood event she showed up to stoned, Sarandon replied, “Only one?” and slapped her knee as the two shared a hearty laugh.
“I would say almost all except the Oscars,” she replied.
From someone who has eight Golden Globes and four Emmy nominations, that’s a lot of high times! I love it, and I’ll always love Sarandon. I also suppose when you’re an actor so many awards shows can get “boring.” If only we all the the problem of sitting through world class awards shows in designer dresses, am I right?!

Scott Wolf is 45, and he looks AMAZING!
In fact, the Party of Five star and father of two admits he looks freakishly young and that he does still get carded (well, that’s good)! Don’t get Scott wrong, though- he’s also still so humble (and gracious) about being included in this years SMA issue!
Says Wolf during his Sexiest Man Alive photo shoot at People:
“I’ve got two young kids in the house, so I’m knee deep in diapers and smooshy food…any time my name and the word “sexy” are in the same sentence it’s a good thing.”
He goes on to say:
“It seems like there’s an interesting resurgence for all things ’90′s. There was some pretty great stuff that came out of that era, and I’m obviously proud of Party of Five and having gotten my start on that show.”
Aw, forget Adam Levine. I still have SUCH a crush on Scott Wolf! Thoughts?
