New Details Revealed About Paris Jackson Suicide Attempt

15-year-old Paris Jackson was rushed to the hospital yesterday after leaving a suicide note, taking 20 Motrin and cutting herself with a kitchen knife — according to a Jackson family lawyer, she is "physically fine." Authorities as well as people close to Paris have since clarified that they don't really think she was serious about ending her life. "I know Paris freaked out and regretted what she had done after she had done it. That's when she cried for help. That saved her life." Or, as one asshole-sounding cop put it: "She wanted attention."

Another source says that Jackson hurt herself because she wasn't allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert at the Gibson Ampitheater that's happening today, and still more that Paris is in turmoil over her upcoming testimony in the Jackson v. AEG lawsuit. In various photos, it looks like Jackson might be a long-time cutter, and sources are intimating that this isn't her first time self-harming.

“She’s given the family a scare before. All of Michael’s kids have had a rough time since their dad died, but Paris is the most sensitive of the three. She takes everything to heart, and the last year of family strife hasn’t given her much time to regroup or heal.’’ [Us Weekly, TMZ, The Daily Beast; lede image via Twitter]

ABC is reportedly searching for a daytime replacement for Katie Couric's talk show because it is not doing so well. One unnamed studio exec says: "It’s an unmitigated disaster. One of the biggest failures ever in syndication. Terrible ratings, no growth, shouldn’t be on the air." Others attribute it to Couric's attitude: "Katie has stipulated that she will only interview Ivy League-type guests, and her blatant disregard for producers and executives alike, has created such animosity that ABC [execs] have made it a top priority to find a replacement next season.” [Fox News]


Britain has banned the above commercial for its sexism and degradation of women. It is about people at an Internet company being addressed by their boss, Pamela Anderson. After Pamela Anderson's regulation hottie secretary asks her if she wants cream in her coffee, Unidentified Gross Employee fantasizes about both women cavorting in bikinis with "cream" (read: male ejaculate) all over their bodies. Still not as bad as those Carls Jr. commercials. [NYDN]
