Rosie O’Donnell is recovering after suffering a heart attack last week, the comedian wrote on her blog Monday.

O’Donnell, 50, said she started experiencing pains after she helped a woman get out of her car on Tuesday in Nyack, N.Y. She said she experienced chest pain, nausea and muscle soreness and took Bayer aspirin when she searched the Internet and discovered many of her symptoms matched up.

“Saved by a TV commercial. Literally,” she wrote.

O’Donnell went to the doctor the next day where it was discovered her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked. She was subsequently sent to the hospital and had a stent inserted. “I am lucky to be here,” she said, calling her survival a “miracle.”

O’Donnell then urged other women not to discount the signs as she initially did. “Know the symptoms ladies,” she wrote. “Listen to the voice inside. The one we all so easily ignore.”

O’Donnell’s heart attack comes weeks after her fiancée, Michelle Rounds, was diagnosed with a rare disease called desmoid tumors.

Snooki of Jersey Shore shows off her baby bump

Snooki‘s new-born son is “beautiful,” says her Jersey Shore co-star.

The reality TV star gave birth to Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, her first child with fiancé Jionni LaValle, last weekend. Deena Cortese has revealed Snooki is adapting wonderfully to motherhood.

“The baby’s beautiful,” Deena told New York Daily News column Confidenti@l. “And [Snooki] said it’s great being a mom.”

The sixth and final season of Jersey Shore is set to air later this year.

Pauly D has revealed that he and his castmates were all choked up when they heard the show was coming to an end.

Athough Deena is sad to be moving on from the series, she believes the experience has helped her change her life for the better.

“The show made me grow, and made me fix things,” she explained.

Deena also revealed what she plans to do next with her career.

The outrageous star would love to lend her voice to an animated movie.

“This is one of the things I’ve wanted to do since I was little,” she explained. “And I would love to be in a Disney cartoon, like a princess, or even like a Finding Nemo, or anything that’s like a cute cartoon.”

JoJo Ryder and Keith Sweat

R&B is filled with strong, passionate artists that challenged the status quo to bring more diverse, individual sounds to their genre.  One of these successes is the New Jack Swing, innovated by mega-star, Keith Sweat.  His soulful sounds have blown up radio stations since the 1980’s, and landed high on the Billboard 200 as well as #2 on the R&B charts with “Make It Last Forever.”

The Harlem-born R&B singer, and the CEO of Untouchable J Productions, JoJo Ryder, have entered into a strategic partnership to create content for television that includes a documentary featuring never-before-seen footage of Keith’s career from the 80’s and 90’s to present day.  TM Mann Entertainment saw the formidable charge these two could bring, and brought them together.

“I feel really good about how my company and UJP are working together,” Sweat said today.  “I am aware of JoJo’s success, and his understanding of the demographic of the 18-34 age group.  I can’t wait for everyone to see the content that we create, baby.”

Loyal Studios in Burbank, CA, was used for the initial interviews.  “Having these two great talents collaborating in our studios is amazing,” said Bob Bekian, CEO of Loyal Studios.  “Keith Sweat has an incredible body of work, and JoJo Ryder is one the hottest television and film producers in Hollywood right now.”

Ryder has multiple projects in process as well as television and development deals that several major studios are involved in.

“It’s a thrill to be working with a living legend of Keith’s caliber,” Jojo said. “There are so many layers to Keith that viewers will find fascinating when the content comes out.”

It seems as if the pairing of UJT and Keith Sweat is truly an ‘untouchable’ partnership.
Keith Sweat has a book entitled “Make It Last Forever” coming out February 14th, 2013.

‘Jersey Shore’ Ending After Upcoming Season 6

Jersey Shore

Jersey Shore comes to an end

The party’s finally coming to an end for “Jersey Shore.” MTV is ending the drunkenly pioneering reality show after the upcoming sixth season airs in October.

The writing has been on the wall for months that this might be the last hurrah for “Jersey Shore’s” crew of aggressively-tanned partiers. In Touch magazine reported in June that the cast was told it would be the show’s last season when they arrived in Seaside Heights to start filming.

“Jersey Shore” ratings have been steadily declining in recent seasons after reaching a high of 8.8 million viewers when the cast traveled to Florence, Italy for Season 4.

Still, it’s not the last you’ll see of the “Jersey Shore” gang on MTV. “Snooki & JWoww” has been renewed for Season 2, which will likely feature Snooki giving birth to her newborn son Lorenzo. EW also reports that MTV executives have planned a “Jersey Shore” retrospective special called “Gym, Tan, Look Back” and would be open to a Snooki and Jionni wedding special.

Kim Kardashian and Old Navy settle lawsuit over ad

Kim Kardashian has settled a lawsuit against Old Navy claiming the clothing retailer violated her publicity rights by using a lookalike in an ad.

Kardashian sued over the spot in July 2011, claiming the company’s use of a model who looked like her might confuse consumers about her actual endorsements, which include a clothing store and shoe line.

No details about the settlement were filed with the court.

“The lawsuit was resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties,” the two sides said in a joint statement.

The lawsuit was over a commercial titled “Super C-U-T-E,” which featured Canadian singer-model Melissa Molinaro. The ad began airing in February 2011 and was still being used in some of the company’s promotions months later, Kardashian’s lawsuit stated.

An attorney for Old Navy said at a January hearing that Molinaro was famous in her own right and her appearance in the ad wasn’t intended to draw similarities to the reality TV starlet.

Kardashian’s attorney Gary Hecker contended that some news outlets and Twitter users noted similarities in the women’s appearances.

Kardashian, 31, was seeking unspecified damages and an order barring Old Navy from using a lookalike model again.

Tom Cruise gets off cheaply in divorce from Katie Holmes

More details are emerging about the lightning-quick divorce of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, and, as was the case during his previous divorce from actress Nicole Kidman, Cruise is getting off pretty easy.

Citing sources familiar with the court documents, a report at TMZ says that Holmes will not receive a lump-sum payout, meaning that Cruise gets to keep most of his $250 million fortune.

TMZ also says that Holmes is not getting spousal support, but her ex will pay her $400,000 a year in child support until their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, turns 18. He reportedly will cover Suri’s medical and dental care and education.

In addition, sources told TMZ, the settlement says that the couple agrees that Suri will not attend a residential school. That means she won’t be sent to the Delphian, a Scientology school in Oregon that her big sister Isabella — Cruise’s daughter with Kidman — attended.
