How Sandra Hid Her Divorce; Lindsay Offered $1M To Be On Celebrity RehabS

  • Apparently, Sandra Bullock isn't just good at hiding babies. She filed for divorce in Texas on April 23, but managed to keep the documents out of tabloid reporters' hands with an ingenious trick — she only used her initials.

Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart," he said. [People]
  • Also from People: Sandra Bullock said of Jesse's Nazi photo, "The photo shocked me and made me sad. This is not the man I married. This was stupid, this was ignorant. Racism, anti-Semitism, sexism, homophobia, anything Nazi and a boatload of other things have no place in my life." [TMZ]

After I finished it, the book stayed with me for a long time. It's not supposed to be about how violence is attractive or exciting. It's not about a glamorous guy going around killing people; it's about someone that's really f- up." [WSJ]
