What would Tiger Woods become if he went to Navy Seal in stead of Golf?

Tiger Woods at Fort Bragg in 2004
Once Tiger Woods seriously thought of leaving his golf career and becoming a Navy SEAL and it is a fact. Wood's former swing coach Hank Haney writes in his new book “The Big Miss,” which has been excerpted on Golf Digest’s tablet editions and in the April edition of the magazine. That is why woods didn't miss the chance in 2004. He spent three days at Fort Bragg, N.C., observing and participating in training exercises in that year.

Woods’s late father, Earl, served in the Army’s Special Forces in Vietnam and the golfer has always had a high regard for the military. In 2004, he conducted a golf clinic and trained with various units for three days at Fort Bragg, N.C. Haney writes of Woods’s training runs in Army boots and of Woods’s flirtation with joining the SEALs, to the point of participating in vigorous, secret training sessions.

“I thought, ‘Wow. Here is Tiger Woods, the greatest athlete on the planet, maybe the greatest athlete ever, right in the middle of his prime, basically ready to leave it all behind for a military life,’ ” Haney writes. Woods, now 36, told Haney that the SEALs were “ ‘making a special age exemption for me.’ ” “To my knowledge, he did training in parachuting, self-defense, urban-warfare simulations and shooting,” Haney writes. “I never heard of Tiger doing any training in the water with the SEALs, but he was already a pretty accomplished diver.”

Woods told Haney about training as a sharpshooter and in self-defense, adding that the golfer “really wanted to be able to protect his family and his home if anything ever happened.”

Haney writes that he became alarmed about the training. “When I later learned the full truth about the dangerous exercises that Tiger engaged in with the SEALs, it caused me to question whether the greatest golfer the game has ever seen severely hampered his chance at surpassing one of the most revered marks in all of sports — Jack Nicklaus’ record — because of his fascination with the military.”

Woods’s Excel Sports Management agent, Mark Steinberg, called Haney’s claim that the book was about golf “clearly false.” In a statement, he added: “His armchair psychology about Tiger, on matters he admits they didn’t even discuss, is ridiculous. Because of his father, it’s no secret that Tiger has always had high respect for the military, so for Haney to twist that admiration into something negative is disrespectful.”

Just the kind of distraction Woods needs as he prepares to play in the Honda Classic on Thursday in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. “The disruptive timing of this book shows that Haney’s self-promotion is more important to him than any other person or tournament,” Steinberg said. “What’s been written violates the trust between a coach and player and someone also once considered a friend.”

Jennifer Lopez fits the gown at Oscar or the gown fits the singer and actress and judge

Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz on announcement

Jennifer Lopez's nipple stunned the show at the 84th Annual Academy Awards while presenting with Cameron Diaz, 39 -- or did it? Wearing a cleavage-baring Zuhair Murad gown, many wondered if the American Idol judge, 42, had an accidental nip-slip while co-presenting the Oscars for Best Costume Design and Best Makeup. Lopez and Cameron Diaz showing off their (clothed) backsides while presenting at the Oscars on Feb 26, but to hear the Internet tell it, Lopez also showed us a bit more than that.

The actress/singer/"Idol" judge looked stunning in a form-fitting Zuhair Murad gown with a cleavage-baring neckline. But some have said that at one point, it looked like one of her cups was running over, giving viewers at home a glimpse of a nip slip. And yet, according to Lopez's stylist Mariel Haenn, those who saw it must've been imagining things.

Haenn's tweeted that the 42-year-old's gown was custom-made to avoid slippage or spillage of any kind. "The dress fit perfectly to her every inch. There were cups built in ...and in NO chance that there were any, how do you say?... 'slips,'" Haenn wrote.

Lopez's stylist Mariel Haenn denied Lopez gave an inadvertent peep show during the telecast, tweeting: "The dress fit perfectly to her every inch. There were cups built in and there's no chance that there were any, how do you say? 'slips.'" Added Haenn: "While the dress did give the illusion of sheer-ness, joke's on everyone who wishes they saw something! If you thought that dress was hot wait until you see what's next."

A great cold war to win: Madonna and Elton John the rivals

Madonna and Elton John face to face
A cold war has been closing near between two of the world’s biggest stars, Sir Elton John and Madonna, who are throwing rival post-Oscar parties at the same time, two miles from each other in Hollywood. It is a great news before Madonna would go out on tour in 2012. The halftime performer recently performed in the Super Bowl XVLI and that excitement may be a kind of stimuli for this war behind the scenes at the Kodak Theatre.

In a battle of A-list egos, the feuding stars have spent the days leading up to the 84th Academy Awards ceremony trying to outshine one another in a desperate attempt to host the best Oscars party in town.

Sir Elton, 64, and civil partner David Furnish are holding their annual Oscar dinner party at the Pacific Design Centre in aid of the Elton John Aids Foundation.

Tickets to the event cost $US3500 ($3270) and last year it raised $US4 million. Katy Perry, Chace Crawford, Dita Von Teese, Heidi Klum and Jessica Alba are among the invited guests.

But Madonna, who is engaged in a long-running spat with Sir Elton, is determined to upstage his dinner. The 53-year-old has poached Sir Elton’s favourite LA florist, Eric Butterbaugh, and has promised guests she will sing live at her party.

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Britney Spears, Natalie Portman, Sean Penn, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez and Tom Cruise are reportedly confirmed to attend the party at her manager Guy Oseary’s house.

The singer, whose film W.E. has been nominated in the Oscar’s costume design category, has apparently even phoned Penelope Cruz, Bradley Cooper and Cameron Diaz to personally invite them to the party, which she usually co-hosts with Demi Moore, who is recovering from a breakdown.

Nike limited-edition basketball shoe make collectors crazy: shoe release stopped at last

Galaxy Glow-IN-The-Dark, the edition that drew hundreds of Nike lovers

Nike canceled its All-Star shoe release on February 24 morning after Thursday night's near riot at Orlando's Florida Mall, prompting disbelief among sometimes-agitated shoe collectors and investors who traveled from across the country to buy the limited-edition Nike Galaxy Foamposite.

More than 100 sheriff's deputies in riot gear broke up an out-of-control crowd waiting outside the mall to buy that basketball shoe. Authorities say there were no injuries or arrests outside the Florida Mall late Thursday. The crowd began getting unruly as hundreds packed the parking lot, waiting to buy the $220, limited-edition shoe that was timed to be released during the NBA All-Star Game in Orlando.

Police also arrested 3 from the agitated and rioting crowd in Maryland waiting for the shoe's release. The disturbances follow a series of outbursts across the country in December as impatient shoppers lined up for another new basketball shoe from Nike Inc. The Orlando Sentinel ( ) reported the crowd was asked to wait across the street when the mall closed. But one person ran toward Foot Locker and others followed. Authorities formed a line and used shields to push back the crowd.

"I saw hundreds of people running toward me. I thought I was going to get trampled," Amanda Charles, 20, told the newspaper. Charles who was among a group of a half-dozen friends who drove more than two hours from Jacksonville to try to buy the glow-in-the-dark Nikes. At a mall in Hyattsville, Md., police said Friday they arrested one person for disorderly conduct as a crowd of more than 100 awaited the shoe's release.

She credited her mother for taking the photo.

Banks first announced she enrolled in the program back in March 2011. The Owner/President Management Program costs around $33,000 per week. Banks is known for her work as a supermodel, talk show host and co-creator of the reality show "America's Next Top Model."

Kate Walsh opening up everything in the "Shape!" magazine march issue

ABC dramas "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice" star Kate Walsh appears in the March 2012 issue of "Shape!" where she reveals more than her totally bare and naked body.

Kate Walsh, a perfect shape
She opens up everything about herself from her natural hair color to her thoughts on plastic surgery in an exclusive interview with the fabulous fitness magazine – and has the details. In the cover  she is a fit woman with great legs. Her body in a bikini is stunning. Perfect breasts, great curves and sexy legs. This is amazing for a woman in her 20′s much less for a woman that is 44. I can appreciate a woman that puts in the work like she does. She is toned and tight and seems to enjoy showing off her hard work.

“We live in a strange time when getting plastic surgery is as common as dyeing your hair,” the 44-year-old actress says. “But in my profession, I need a malleable face. Everyone has her line in the sand. I draw mine at facials and laser treatments.” However, just because Kate isn’t a fan of plastic surgery for herself, she doesn’t judge those who indulge in it.

“If others want to go a step further, it’s their call,” she adds. And although everyone knows her as a radiant redhead, Kate reveals that she was actually born a blonde! “I felt like an imposter before,” says Kate about her days as a blonde. “I’m stronger and sassier as a redhead. It’s much more me.” Also the actress is famed for her fiery red tresses, but admits they aren’t natural. However, Kate plans on sticking with the bold hue for the meantime, as she loves the confidence it gives her.

“I highlighted it to keep it blonde for a long time. And let me tell you, I got so much more attention from men,” she revealed in an interview with Shape magazine. “I felt like an imposter before. I'm stronger and sassier as a redhead. It's much more me.” This March 2012 issue of SHAPE will be available on newsstands February 27.

Jennifer Aniston, a new Hollywood Walk of Fame: her new film "Wanderlust" to release

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd in "Wanderlust"
TV and film star Jennifer Aniston is going to receive the lifetime honor as a star from 1993-now on and the honor is with the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, February 22, two days before the release of her new movie, "Wanderlust." According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is set to place her distinction just outside of the W Hollywood Hotel.

The 43-year-old Emmy winner also had her handprints and footprints immortalized in cement near Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theatre in July 2011. Aniston is the first former cast member from the hit show "Friends" to receive such honors. Her star will be located at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of The W Hollywood Hotel.

"Wanderlust" hits theaters on Friday. The movie reunites Aniston with Paul Rudd, her co-star in "The Object of My Affection." The two play a couple that leaves their city lives and lands in a clothing-optional hippie commune where they meet Seth, who is played by Aniston's real-life boyfriend, Justin Theroux.In her new film "Wanderlust," the actress reportedly told E.T. Canada, according to People magazine, that there were "a lot" of nude scenes she had to film but found them "liberating."

Last week, the couple both attended the Los Angeles premiere for "Wanderlust" but posed separately. Aniston donned a knee-length, form-fitting Tom Ford dress that she paired with black Christian Louboutin pumps. The dress, which is from the designer's spring 2012 collection, features leather trim and a frill at the waist, giving Aniston a curvier figure. Aniston topped off the chic black and white ensemble with gold cuffs. (See more photos from the event).

"Wanderlust" also features Malin Akerman and Kathryn Hahn, who are set to attend Aniston's star ceremony, along with Adam Sandler. The actor, who co-starred with her in the 2011 movie "Just Go With It," got his Hollywood star around the same time last year.

Aniston's famous ex-husband, Brad Pitt, and his life partner, Angelina Jolie, have never been nominated for a Hollywood star, a spokesperson for the Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the events, confirmed to

Last month, Marg Helgenberger was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, just before she appeared on a new episode of the CBS show "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" for the last time. Her co-star Jorja Fox and actress Dana Delany braved a rare Southern California rainstorm to attend the ceremony.

Aniston was born in the suburb of Sherman Oaks in Southern California's San Fernando Valley on Feb. 11, 1969. She moved with her parents to New York when her father, John, was cast on the daytime show "Love of Life" in the 1970s. The actress graduated from the city's High School of the performing arts in 1987. She starred in off-Broadway plays, such as "Dear Life," and later moved back to the Los Angeles area. Her father, a native of Greek whose real name is Yannis Anastassakis, now plays Victor Kiriakis on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives."

Aniston scored her breakout role as Rachel Green on the NBC comedy series "Friends," which ran between 1994 and 2004. Her layered haircut on the show inspired the famous "Rachel" style emulated by scores of woman across the United States during the 1990s.

Aniston won one Emmy for her part and has been nominated five times. She also received an Emmy nod for a guest role on the NBC sitcom "30 Rock." Before she was cast on "Friends," Aniston played Jeannie Bueller on the short-lived show "Ferris Bueller," based on the movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," and Courtney Walker in "Molloy," which lasted one season. She also appeared alongside "Willow" star Warwick Davis in the 1993 horror film "Leprechaun."

Aniston went on to star in mostly comedy movies, such as "Office Space" in 1999, "Bruce Almighty" in 2003, "The Break-Up" in 2006 and "The Bounty Hunter" in 2010. She also played Mark Wahlberg's love interest in the 2001 film "Rock Star" and starred with Owen Wilson in the 2008 movie "Marley & Me." In 2011, she played a dentist who sexually harasses her co-worker in "Horrible Bosses."

Lindsay Lohan, the hottest
Lindsay Lohan is set to host the NBC's sketch comedy showcase "Saturday Night Live" on March 3, 2012. This is for the 4th time and first since 2006 when her legal drama and rehab trips began. It is announced during Maya Rudolph’s triumphant return to “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend.

Recently Lohan 25 was seen posed nude in Playboy and both the playboy spread and the hosting might be thought as comeback plans. Lohan is set to appear in court Wednesday for what will hopefully be her penultimate probation hearing. Should she stay on track with her community service, the actress will be free from the court system on March 29.

The show "Saturday Night Live" tweeted: “That’s right: March 3rd, @lindsaylohan with musical guest Jack White!! See you then! #SNL #March3rd.” To which Lohan responded, “SNL! I love @NBC !!!!!!!!!!!!!” Though the actress does not have any new film or music projects to promote, she is not a stranger to the SNL stage. The March 3 appearance will be her fourth time hosting, but her first time back since 2006. Lohan was a popular face on SNL in the mid-2000s when Tina Fey was the head writer. The two starred together in “Mean Girls.”

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Lohan and the show have maintained a good relationship. She has publicly referred to Lorne Michaels, the show’s producer, as a mentor and father figure. According to TMZ, Lohan reached out to Michaels and asked if she could do the show again. She said that hosting SNL will remind people that she is an actress and not a “defendant.”

Newly engaged Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
"Valentine's Day" and "The A-Team" star Jessica Biel and her long term boyfriend singer, songwriter Justin Timberlake at last going go down the aisle. Biel, 29, showed off what appeared to be her engagement ring during a "Saturday Night Live" afterparty in New York at Asellina in Gansevoort Park Hotel at the weekend and Biel was proudly flaunting her sparkler, according to a new report.

"Bridesmaids" and "SNL" star Kristen Wiig and actress Amy Poehler, who were also at the party, "loved the ring and chatted [Biel] up about it," the source added.

The couple dated on and off for about four and a half years. They split up in March 2011 amid rumors that Timberlake, a six-time Grammy winner, had a fling with actress Olivia Munn. They reconciled a few months later, and Timberlake reportedly proposed in late December during a trip to Wyoming.

The Sexy Back singer and 7th Heaven star got engaged in late December in Jackson, Wyoming according to another source. In an exclusive interview with Timberlake’s grandmother, Sadie Bomar, confirmed the news, going on to say how happy she was to welcome Jessica to the family.

"Jessica is a very sweet girl, she's upright and everything and we love her," Sadie said. "She's a wonderful campaigner for the environment and Justin is too, a fine young man. Jessica will be a lovely member of the family."

The kidnapped lady Elizabeth Smart knots herself with her fiance at a private advance ceremony

American activist and contributor for ABC News  Elizabeth Smart has married her Scottish fiance on feb 18 at a Mormon temple in Hawaii. They completed the nuptial several months ahead of scheduled plans for the nuptials after news of her engagement last month.

This young woman from Utah gained widespread attention at age 14 when she was kidnapped at knifepoint from her home and recovered nine months later by an itinerant street preacher.

A family spokesman said Smart married Matthew Gilmour, of Aberdeen, Scotland, on Saturday on Oahu's North Shore. "Elizabeth's desire was for what most women want — to celebrate her nuptials in a private wedding with family and close friends," family spokesman Chris Thomas said in a statement. "She decided, about a week ago, the best way to avoid significant distraction was to change her wedding plans and to get married in an unscheduled ceremony outside of Utah."

The 24-year-old Smart is in her last year at Brigham Young University. She met Gilmour while doing Mormon missionary work in Paris. The couple wed at the Laie Hawaii Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in front of a small group of family members, Thomas said. The group then celebrated at a private reception and luau.

Smart and Gilmour got engaged last month and initially made plans to wed this summer. "The bride and groom were beaming as they left the LDS Temple," he added, noting the couple planned to go on an extended honeymoon in an undisclosed location. "We're just thrilled that she's married," her father, Ed Smart, told The Salt Lake Tribune, calling the ceremony a "kind of a spur of a moment thing."

Onetime itinerant street preacher Brian David Mitchell was convicted in 2010 of Smart's 2002 kidnapping and sexual assault. He is serving a life prison sentence. Smart's disappearance led to a massive search across Utah. She testified during Mitchell's five-week trial, calling her kidnapping "nine months of hell."

Elizabeth Smart and her fiance
Smart said that within hours of the kidnapping she was forced into a polygamous marriage with Mitchell and raped. She said she endured daily rapes, lived homeless and was forced to use drugs and alcohol. Since her rescue, Smart has become increasingly involved in advocacy work for crime victims, forming the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, aimed largely at protecting children from abuse through prevention and education.

"Her wedding further demonstrates it is possible to rise above challenging circumstances to lead a happy and productive life," Thomas said. "Once Elizabeth returns from her honeymoon, she looks forward to continuing her child advocacy work."

Chelsea Handler treatened Reese Witherspoon: just for making humor

American stand-up comedienne, actress, best-selling author and producer, 36 year-old Chelsea Handler made some humorous comments about her "This Mean War" co-actress Academy award winner Reese Witherspoon. They both became close friend from that time.

"She is just so ridiculous," Witherspoon, 35, tells iVillage. "She always threatens to tape record me when I go to the bathroom because I have a microphone on. I purposely take off my mic and put it somewhere else when I have to go somewhere. But she caught me singing a Rihanna song backstage."

Despite Handler's antics, Witherspoon says the comedienne -- who also counts Jennifer Aniston and Charlize Theron as BFFs -- is "very sweet."

"She's a really great friend. She's the kind of person who will cancel all her plans if you're in a bad mood and you just want to sit on the couch and watch a movie," Witherspoon says. "She's really generous. She likes to give a lot of good gifts!"

Handler isn't the only celeb Witherspoon admires. "I love Gloria Steinem. I think she's incredible," says the actress, who lists Holly Hunter, Frances McDormand and Diane Keaton among her faves. "[I respect] women who've really had long and wonderful careers where they create great characters and just seem to be endlessly interesting and fascinating to watch."

The cold war between Miranda Lambert and Chris Brown is going on: Tweeter, the weapon

Miranda Lambert, mentor on NBC‘s Voice, and wife of Blake Shelton, recently took to to sound off about Chris Brown, in which Brown replied with some very vulgar remarks. If you thought this sweet little country girl would sit back quietly and take it, you obviously have not heard Gunpowder and Lead! Read on for the scoop!

Miranda Lambert hopped on Twitter following the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, where she posted: “Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl. Not cool that we act like that didn’t happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys.”

Miranda Lambert has no tolerance for men who beat on their women, which is something that Chris Brown was accused of by former flame, Rihanna. Miranda Lambert’s parents actually ran a shelter for abused women when she was growing up, so there is no question why she feels so strongly about the issue.

After her angry Tweet on Sunday, Chris Brown fired back with: “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F*** OFF!” But soon after, Chris Brown’s post was deleted, and replaced with: “IM BACK SO WATCH MY BaCK as I walk away from all this negativity #teambreezygrammy.”

But Miranda Lambert is not about to let the Twitter war die, as she once again took to Twitter and said: ” Be who you are an stand for what u believe in. NO MATTER WHAT!,” adding: “Oh and one more thing for all who are asking….I have a Grammy too.” Obviously, those Tweets were directed at Chris Brown – let the war continue!

Bill Clinton Struggled in dealing with the Lewinsky affair: a new documentay to come with the answer

According to the new documentary that is going to be aired next week on PBS about the life of former Us president Bill Clinton, he contacted pollster Dick Morris to gauge whether he should come out with the truth when news of the affair broke.

Hillary husband apparently struggled with whether to talk publicly about his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, as his aides were surprised, even dismayed, about his relationship with the 23-year-old.

"He said, 'Ever since I got here to the White House I've had to shut my body down sexually I mean, but I screwed up with this girl. I didn't do what they said I did, but I may have done so much that I can't prove my innocence,'" Morris recalls in the film "Clinton," which was written and directed by Barak Goodman.

"And I said to him, 'The problem that presidents have is not the sin, it's the cover up and you should explore just telling the American people the truth.' He said, 'Really, do you think I could do that?' And I said, 'Let me test it, let me run a poll.' So I took a poll and I tested popular attitudes on that and I called him back and I said, 'They will forgive the adultery, but they won't easily forgive that you lied,'" Morris says in the documentary to air on PBS next week.

Meanwhile, several of Clinton's aides were convinced he was set up. "He's got all these enemies who are out to get him," Clinton's labor secretary, Robert Reich, said in the film. "He wouldn't be so stupid as to jeopardize his entire presidency. For what? No, that was not the Bill Clinton I knew."

Clinton first denied the affair that broke out in the news media in 1998, famously saying he "did not have sexual relations with that woman." He later admitted to oral sex with the young intern and said his relationship with Lewinsky was wrong and inappropriate.

"I am profoundly sorry for all I have done wrong in words and in deeds," he said Dec. 11 1998. "I never should have misled the country, the Congress, my friends or my family. Quite simply, I gave in to my shame."

Although his subsequent impeachment made him only the second U.S. president to be impeached, Clinton's aides say that in a way, the former president himself set up barriers that he could then leap across and he was always confident he could find his way back.

"How many second chances does any one person deserve?" his former press secretary, Dee Dee Myers, said in the film. "Clinton's view is as many second chances as a person is willing to try to take. As many times as you fail, don't you deserve the chance to redeem yourself? Isn't history loaded with people who have fallen and gotten up, fallen and gotten up and done great things?"

The documentary also details the challenges Hillary Clinton faced as first lady. Clinton was, behind the scenes, a powerful force in the White House but aides said her strengths often turned into his weaknesses. "Voters thought that it was a zero-sum game, that for Hillary to be strong, Bill would have to be weak, and as a result the perception of Hillary's strength became a perception of Bill's weakness," Morris said.

Hillary Clinton was blamed by many for a weak turnout in the 1994 election and for the failure of the administration's health care reform plan in 1993 that failed to gain momentum. "She was outspoken, she was smart, she was hard driving, and some people resented her," Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff Harold Ickes said in the film. "Remember during the campaign, it was two for the price of one, well people aren't electing two for the price of one. They're electing the president."

Nicki Minaj's Little Red Riding Hood-inspired garb at the 2012 Grammy Awards

At the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday, Nicki Minaj confused the audience then amused and then just plainly angered them. The reason is because the "Super Bass" singer, 29, was on the arm of a man dressed in a Pope-inspired outfit while she donned a dramatic red satin gown and cloak by Versace complete with matching red gloves.

Then, an exorcism. Viewers stared at their TVs, slack-jawed and unsure of what exactly they were watching. The religious response to Minaj’s performance will surely be furious — the Catholic League is likely firing up its angriest press release yet — but fans’ reactions were fast and frank. They had no idea what sort of spectacle they had just witnessed, but few of them liked it. Read some of the funniest fan tweets, after the jump.

"It's the egg moment of the year," E! News correspondent Kelly Osbourne said of Minaj's look, while referencing Lady Gaga's dramatic incubating entrance at last year's GRAMMY Awards.

Whitney Houston, American singer, actress, producer, and model, dies an immature death.

Whitney Houston, whose soaring voice lifted her to the top of the pop music world in 1980s and '90s but whose personal decline was fueled by years of drug and alcohol use, was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel room Saturday.

Law enforcement sources told The Times that paramedics arrived at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where Houston was staying, and found her dead. Her cause of death was unknown, said the sources, who asked to remain anonymous because the investigation is ongoing.

Houston, 48, was in the Los Angeles area for a musical tribute for music executive Clive Davis and had performed earlier this week. Houston was planning to attend Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party Saturday at the Beverly Hilton hotel, the see-and-be-seen event of the year.

Earlier this week, the 79-year-old Davis perused page after page of guest lists in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where he conducts business when he’s in the Los Angeles area. Among those Houston was expected to rub elbows with: Quincy Jones, Tony Bennett, Akon, Cee Lo Green, Miley Cyrus, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Jennifer Hudson, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello and Diana Krall. 

“It’s a great time where everybody can set down their swords, so to speak,” Davis said, seated on an overstuffed divan next to a coffee table cluttered with papers, CDs and videos. “I was grateful that, inviting them to my home, that they would feel comfortable and just keep coming back, and they've kept coming back every year to where it's expanded to be this incredible haven for musicians.”

Houston had drug and alcohol problems for years, and in May her spokeswoman said she was going back to rehab. Publicist Kristen Foster told the Associated Press on Saturday that Houston had died but did not provide further details.

Houston was kown for such hits as “How Will I Know,” “Saving All My Love for You” and “I Will Always Love You.” She also starred in movies such as “The Bodyguard.”
Her discographies are:

Whitney Houston (1985)
Whitney (1987)
I'm Your Baby Tonight (1990)
My Love Is Your Love (1998)
Just Whitney (2002)
One Wish: The Holiday Album (2003)
I Look to You (2009)

Terminator and Rambo in the hospital! what if they are in 'The Tomb"

Two Hollywood action stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were shown apparently waiting to receive treatment for injuries sustained from movie stunts. Cynics suggested the picture itself was a stunt as the pair have a film called The Tomb to promote. It showed the two sexagenarians on neighboring hospital gurneys.

Schwarzenegger, 64, had his arm in a sling. Stallone, who is a year older at 65, was shown hooked up to an IV drip with a syringe protruding from his neck. Schwarzenegger posted the picture on the internet and said: “After all the action, stunts and physical abuse shooting The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, it was time for a little tune up on my shoulder.

“Look who was coincidentally waiting in line behind me for his shoulder surgery. Now we’re ready for another round of great times and action when we shoot The Tomb.” It was announced earlier this week that the two actors, who competed for the title of Hollywood’s biggest action star in the 1980s, had both signed up for the film. It will feature Stallone as the designer of a prison and Schwarzenegger as an inmate.

Schwarzenegger previously had a cameo role in Stallone’s action film The Expendables and also appears in its upcoming sequel. He is currently finishing work on The Last Stand, his first starring role since returning to acting after serving as California’s governor.

According to Deadline, In the new film "The Tomb" Stallone will play a man who builds a prison that can’t be escaped from, gets sent to said prison after being set up and then has to get out of the prison he created. Yikes! Schwarzenegger will play an inmate.

The Governator explained on Twitter, “After all the action, stunts & physical abuse shooting The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, it was time for a little tune up on my shoulder."
