Howie Mandel And Other Celebs With Serious OCD

Ever since I found out that Howie Mandel has Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, I’ve semi-obsessively watched “Deal Or No Deal” waiting to see how Howie reacts during those awkward moments when a contestant tries to hug him. Howie’s OCD is no joke—it’s seriously limited his life, and he’s writing a memoir about it called “Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me.” In the book, he’ll reveal much more about his battle with the disease than the nuggets he’s given us so far: that he hasn’t shaken anyone’s hand since 2001, that he walks around his house with a face mask and gloves on, that he is so afraid of public restrooms that he can only use the bathroom at home, and that he shaves his head because it makes him feel cleaner. [Wikipedia]

I am completely and thoroughly fascinated with OCD, so you better believe that I will be picking up Howie’s memoir the day it comes out in November. And I’m also counting the minutes until VH1′s “OCD Project,” which will be like a “Real World” for OCD sufferers undergoing treatment. But since it’ll be a while until either of these comes out, here are some details about other famous OCD suffers to tide you over. Keep reading »

John Travolta May Be Done With Scientology

For as long as John Travolta has been a Scientologist, the media has been making fun of him. But the jokes grew bitter six months ago when Travolta’s only son, Jett, died. The 16-year-old, who was believed to be autistic and allegedly wasn’t treated because his religion did not allow it, died of a seizure. This devastating blow no doubt changed how the Travoltas think about the church. Rick Ross, an author and lecturer on Scientology told The Daily Mail that, “There have been strong rumors coming out of Scientology that John Travolta is disappointed that the religion was not able to help his son more … It’s led him to question his faith.” Keep reading »

Is Chris Brown Ready For Oprah?

With Chris Brown finally offering a public apology for letting his temper get the best of him and striking ex-girlfriend Rihanna, what’s the next stop on his “I’m Sorry” tour? Could it be a seat on Oprah Winfrey’s couch? That’s the word. It’s rumored that Chris Brown’s camp is in negotiations with The Oprah Winfrey Show about making an appearance on the Goddess of the Universe’s talk show. Only there’s one catch: Breezy doesn’t want to talk about the specifics of what happened between he and Rihanna the night he reportedly beat her. However, it seems Oprah’s people have popped back and made it clear that they don’t want anything on the table. With respect to all of you teeny boppers who throw your training bras at Chris in concert, it doesn’t compare to the power of Oprah’s legion of fans. If Chris wants to go back to pop locking for Doublemint gum, I’d sit on the couch, cry and let Oprah verbally spank me. Continue reading Keep reading »

Adam Sandler Hits On Girls With Cocktail Napkins & Other Celeb Pick Up Methods

So how do celebs pick up women? Well, Adam Sandler doesn’t do it very well. His “Funny People” costar Leslie Mann revealed that, back in the day, Sandler tried to hit her up at a night club by writing something really lame (she thinks it was “nice back”) on a cocktail napkin in ketchup. He had his friend bring it to her table—like the go-between gal you used in second grade to tell that boy you liked him. Needless to say, they didn’t speak that night. [People]

After the jump, see how Adam’s game compares to other famous peeps. Keep reading »

Quickies!: Steve-O Has Relationship Advice?

  • We’ve all heard some kind of relationship excuse at some point, but did we know what they actually meant? Steve-O has the answer. [Lemondrop] — Yes, I said Steve-O. He’s much more than a prankster, you know.
  • Daniel Radclife appeared on the cover of the gay U.K. magazine Attitude, and explained that he “loathes” homophobia and thinks it’s disgusting. [Just Jared] – Just another reminder that the “Harry Potter“star is smart and awesome.
  • A paparazzi photographer has accused Jude Law of hitting her outside a London restaurant when she was trying to snap photos, and may bring her case to court though he suffered no injuries. [Pop Culture Madness] – Law says all the flashes caused him to flail his arms around, and that if he hit anyone, it was accidental. [That's a genius excuse. -- Ed.]
