We Will Be Able To Watch DJ AM’s “Gone Too Far” After All


It was tragic when DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, died of a drug overdose in late August, relapsing after more than 11 years of sobriety. One of the horrible wrinkles in the story was that he’d recently filmed a TV series called “Gone Too Far” for MTV, an “Intervention“-style show where he helped addicts down the path to recovery. After a lot of consideration, MTV has decided to air the show after all, starting next Monday at 10 p.m. “Adam felt strongly that by doing this series, he could help other addicts who were at a crisis point to get sober,” his family said in an MTV statement about the decision. “It is our hope that through airing the show that people will get to see the side of Adam that we knew and loved, not just the celebrity DJ, but the honest and caring person who gave so much of himself to help others.” Check out the final interview Goldstein did about the show, above. Get ready to choke up when he says, “Part of me is like who am I—I’m a DJ—but I have to remember this person is going to die and their family has been allowing this to happen.” [ABC News]

What do you think—does Goldstein’s death add a whole ‘nother level of poignancy to the show or is airing the show terribly morbid?

Nancy Grace Puts Jon Gosselin In His Place

Jon Gosselin just got served — and not by soon-to-be ex-wife Kate! The reality TV dad spent the weekend reportedly ransacking the couple’s joint bank account (he allegedly took $200,000, leaving Kate and the kids with a mere $1,000), and on Monday he brought his sideshow to “The Insider.” But he met his match in Nancy Grace because the “HLN” host would have none of it. Watch the video above as she rips him a new one, calling him out for his egotism and his dalliances with younger women. Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Lindsay Lohan’s Father Says She’s Addicted to Prescription Painkillers

“You know why Lindsay’s not acting in feature films right now? Because she can’t. Because the girl with all the talent is hidden and buried deep inside this fungus that’s grown because of the prescription drugs. She can’t be herself. When you hug her she’s like, vacant inside. When she kisses or holds me I get chills, and not in a good way — in a bad way.”

— Michael Lohan discusses daughter Lindsay in an interview with RadarOnline.com. Not to make light of what may very well be a serious drug addiction, but I have a hard time imagining any father getting chills “in a good way” when his daughter “kisses and holds” him. Ew. Keep reading »

Maya Angelou Would Like To Remind You She’s Not Dead


You’d best believe I’d be pissy if I’d wasted my weekend fielding phone calls from frantic friends and family who thought I was dead! But leave it to Maya Angelou, author of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, to be as polite as can be responding to rumors that she’s kicked the bucket. The very-much-alive 81-year-old poet says the rumors “based on an erroneous account” that she’s been hospitalized and headed to the Pearly Gates are a “burden,” especially after her young grandson called her in hysterics. Miss Class Act, though, looks genuinely concerned for the mortal soul of whoever’s spreading this nasty gossip. “I feel sorry for a person who only has that much of life,” she said. “You should be living your own life, not talking about someone else’s death!”

Methinks Ms. Angelou hasn’t taken her head out of a poetry book in the past 10 years long enough to notice rumor-mongering about celeb deaths is a far more popular pastime than, saying, reading poetry. But really, people, she’s lived a hard life. Let the lady grow old in peace! Keep reading »
