The chilling Mel Gibson tape, in which he berates ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, is apparently not the only celebrity death threat alleged this afternoon.
Jesse James’ ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder, threatened to kill him in the past, according to what his lawyer just told the judge in their nasty custody battle.
Fighting for custody of daughter Sunny, James personally has been testifying on the stand this morning, but hasn’t mentioned the allegation … so far.
The motorcycle guru bought a house in Austin, Texas, and wants to take Sunny there so she can be closer to his most recent ex-wife, Sandra Bullock.
Ex-wife #2 is far from pleased about that proposed plan.
At least Jesse James and Sandra Bullock split amicably and quietly. He and his ex-wife are at each other’s throats in court, and it’s getting uglier every day.
Over nearly five years of marriage, Bullock developed a close relationship with Sunny and his two older kids before his cheating led to their divorce.
Lindemulder, who just got out of a halfway house and can’t leave the state of California, filed documents trying to stop the planned move by James.
Janine says the Sandra Bullock excuse doesn’t hold water because if she really cared about Jesse’s children … she would have stayed in California.
We’ll see what a judge has to say about that, but we know James has alleged on many previous occasions that unstable Janine is a threat to Sunny.
A big enough threat to bar her from all contact? Stay tuned.
Carrie Prejean is an honest woman … at least legally.
The controversial beauty queen exchanged opposite marriage vows with handsome but mediocre NFL quarterback Kyle Boller in her hometown of San Diego, Ca.
The Oakland Raiders signal-caller and the former Miss California said “I do” at Capella Church, located inside the Grand Del Mar Hotel in a 25-minute ceremony.
“It was beautiful,” an eyewitness tells E! News of the Prejean-Boller nuptials. “They had cocktails on the lawn right after, and everyone seemed really happy.”
BOLLER-ED OVER: Carrie fell fast and hard for her man.
Carrie Prejean and Kyle Boller made it official when the 23-year-old beauty walked down the aisle in a classically gorgeous, one-shoulder mermaid-style gown.
while Kyle Boller and fellow groomsmen wore traditional black tuxedos.
Leaving behind her six bridesmaids, Prejean and her new husband were whisked away afterward in a white Rolls Royce Phantom. Not a bad way to roll out.
Kyle and Carrie became engaged in February, and began dating July, after she weathered storm of controversy over her remarks at the Miss USA pageant.
Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!
Dean McDermott is only famous because he’s married to Tori Spelling and the couple exploits its cute children on a nauseating, utterly contrived reality show. It’s rather disgusting.
Still, we wish no physical harm on McDermott, which is why we hope he recovers quickly from this week’s dirt bike accident. As of this writing, he’s in the intensive care unit of a California hospital with a punctured and collapsed lung.
“He’s in a lot of pain,” Spelling said, adding that her husband has finally concluded his adventurous hobby isn’t worth such consequences. “He’s taking this as a sign and realizing family is too important to risk his life.”
McDermott was taken to a Los Angeles hospital after crashing on Tuesday. He was bleeding severly at the scene, but was fortunately able to Tweet:
Thanks for the well wishes. A collapsed lung is no fun, and is a lengthy heal. Feeling pretty bad today. Day 2 is always the worst.
With Dean injured, we’ll refrain from asking the obvious question here: Who on earth is following Dean McDermott on Twitter?!?!?
Because Tori and her man had often argued about his dirt biking riding, she relayed the exchanged they shared soon after she arrived by his hospital bed:
“When I first saw him he just softly said ‘I’m so sorry.’” I just held his hand and cried. That’s when he said, ‘I’ll never do this again. You and the kids mean everything to me.’ “
The married pair has two kids: Liam 3; and Stella, 2.
Breaking, shocking news, readers:
Miley Cyrus has been spotted in actual clothing!
We know this is difficult to believe, based on the attire Miley donned in Paris and in Rio last week. But it’s true, and we can prove it:
Meanwhile, in other news, it appears as though reports of a split between Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were premature. These two were spotted in California yesterday, holding hands and looking as happy as ever.
We may criticize Miley (often), but we wish her nothing but the best in her personal life. Perhaps she and Liam will soon get married, have children and settle down away from the spotlight. Far, far, far away from the spotlight.
A gossip site can dream, can’t it?
Oscar-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski said Sunday that he is being treated unfairly and that the U.S. is demanding his extradition from Switzerland in order to serve him “on a platter to the media,” reports The Associated Press.
Polanski’s latest appeal rejected
“I have had my share of dramas and joys, as we all have, and I am not going to try to ask you to pity my lot in life,” Polanski said, breaking his months-long silence. “I ask only to be treated fairly like anyone else.”
The 76-year old director of Chinatown and The Pianist accused Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, who is running for California attorney general, of using the case for publicity. The district attorney’s spokeswoman, Sandi Gibbons, said the D.A.’s office “will withhold comment until the Swiss make a decision on his fugitive status.”
Polanski’s victim wants case dismissed
Polanski’s most recent bid to have his case reviewed by a special counsel or to be sentenced in his absence was rejected last month by a California appeals court. Swiss officials say the Justice Ministry will not rush into a decision for extradition.
Polanski, whose most recent film is The Ghost Writer, was placed under house arrest at his chalet in Gstaad in November 2009. He was arrested Sept. 26 by Swiss authorities and is wanted by U.S. authorities for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. He fled the United States in 1978 for France after pleading guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse with the girl.

Andrew Koenig and Kirk Cameron
Kirk Cameron says he is praying for his former Growing Pains co-star, Andrew Koenig, who has been missing for the past week.
“I am praying for his family during this time of distress and for his safe return,” Cameron told People. “Andrew, if you’re reading this, please call me.”
Growing Pains star goes missing
Koenig, who played best friend Boner to Cameron’s mischievous Mike Seaver on the ’80s sitcom, was last seen on Feb. 14 during a trip to Vancouver. He did not return to California as scheduled on Feb. 16.
“Mike and Boner could always work things out when they put their minds to it,” Cameron said. “I’m praying for you, pal. Hope to hear from you soon.”

Koenig, 41, is the son of Star Trek actor Walter Koenig. The elder Koenig wrote on his website that his son was suffering from clinical depression at the time of his disappearance and that he received a note from Andrew on Feb. 16 that had a “despondent tone.”
Koenig’s family asks that anyone with potentially helpful information contact Vancouver authorities.
With the names of this season’s American Idol finalists having been leaked, THG is aiming to feature all 24 of the top contestants in various posts, articles and videos for our readers.
That’s just how we roll.
For aspiring singers with an interesting backstory and a lot of known information available, such as Jermaine Sellers, this isn’t a difficult task.
For others, such as Andrew Garcia, only the bare essentials are out there. This, of course, is what makes American Idol such a delight: it thrusts heretofore anonymous, aspiring artists into the spotlight and makes them into stars.
Might Garcia be next?
