SEX AND THE CITY OPENS EVERYWHERE IN THE U.S. TODAY MAY 28TH!

Gary Coleman, the child star of the TV sitcom Diff’rent Strokes, died Friday after suffering an intercranial hemorrhage. He was 42.
Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank says life support was terminated and Coleman died at 12:05 p.m.
Coleman was hospitalized Wednesday after falling and suffering a head injury at his home south of Salt Lake City, according to family members.
For a while, it seemed that Gary Coleman’s cherubic face was everywhere, from TV to T-shirts to lunchboxes.
On Diff’rent Strokes, he played precocious Arnold Jackson, who, with his brother Willis (Todd Bridges), was adopted by a wealthy, white Manhattan man (Conrad Bain) and his daughter (Dana Plato).
Coleman’s pudgy cheeks and flawless comic timing made him the break-out star of the popular series, which ran from 1978-86.
His signature line, “Whatchoo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?” became a national catchphrase.
But Coleman’s bright beginnings were overshadowed by domestic disputes, legal troubles and health issues. Coleman was born with a congenital kidney disease that resulted in his small stature. He had two kidney transplants and required frequent dialysis.
At the height of Diff’rent Strokes’ popularity, Coleman reportedly received up to $100,000 an episode. Beginning in 1980, he won four consecutive People’s Choice Awards as Favorite Young TV Performer
He parlayed his prime-time success into steady work in TV guest spots, made-for-TV movies and feature films, including On the Right Track and The Kid with the Broken Halo. The latter inspired the animated TV series The Gary Coleman Show.
But in the years after Diff’rent Strokes, Coleman was in the headlines more often for his off-screen troubles than for his acting.
In 1989, he successfully sued his parents and former advisers for misappropriation of his trust fund, which had dwindled. He was awarded $1.3 million.
In 1999, Coleman filed for bankruptcy, blaming his troubles on financial mismanagement.
In 1998, while working as a security guard, he was charged with assault for hitting a woman who had been seeking an autograph. He pleaded no contest and received a suspended sentence.
In 2007 he was cited for disorderly conduct after arguing with his wife, Shannon Price, whom he married that August. They had met on the set of the 2006 comedy Church Ball.
In 2008, he and Price appeared on the syndicated TV show Divorce Court in an attempt to save their marriage.
But last year, the two were involved in a domestic dispute which resulted in Price being arrested and both receiving disorderly conduct citations.
And he recently settled a lawsuit with a man he allegedly hit with his car outside a Utah bowling alley in 2008.
In January, Coleman was arrested for failure to appear in court for an unspecified earlier charge.
Coleman’s troubles led him to be the butt of jokes for comedians and he even inspired a character by the same name in the Tony-winning musical Avenue Q.
Through it all, Coleman maintained his perspective and sense of humor. “I parody myself every chance I get,” he said. “I try to make fun of myself and let people know that I’m a human being, and these things that have happened to me are real. I’m not just some cartoon who exists and suddenly doesn’t exist.”
Despite his real-life travails, Coleman will remain an ’80s TV icon, a quick-witted boy whose onscreen charm lives on in television syndication.
R.I.P. SO SAD!

While fallen actors Patrick Swayze and Brittany Murphy (and performer Michael Jackson) were honored at the 82nd Academy Awards on Sunday, one name left off the list quickly caused waves: Farrah Fawcett.
Fawcett, who died at 62 from cancer last June, was not part of the “In Memoriam” montage that played while James Taylor performed an acousticversionof My Life. of My Life. Bea Arthur, who died in April at the age of 86, was also left off.
Academy Awards rep Leslie Unger after the show said, “It is highly unlikely that we forgot about Farrah Fawcett but we unfortunately don’t include everyone each year.” She added: “There are many angles that are looked at as to who to include and unfortunately we don’t include everyone.”
Bruce Davis, the executive director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, said days before the show that producing the segment is the toughest to do and his committee always has to make some tough cuts.
“It is the single most troubling element of the Oscar show every year,” he said. “Because more people die each year than can possibly be included in that segment.” His office keeps a running list of those who have passed away since last year’s segments which he and a small committee whittle down from more than 100 names to about 30. “You are dropping people who the public knows. It’s just not comfortable.”

Wow! Octomom Nadya Suleman’s body is slamming! I think she looks amazing. It’s really hard to believe her body looks so good after giving birth to eight last year. Here’s the story;
Octomom, the history-making mother who became the first woman in the world to give birth to eight healthy children, flaunted her new bikini body for a photo shoot.
The 34-year-old Octomom who already had six children in addition to the octoplets droped down 120 pounds from a staggering 270 after her record breaking delivery on January 26, 2009.
“I wanted to prove to myself that I can do it on my own, naturally. My friends call me Ruber Band because I always snapped back so quickly after my other kids!” Nadya tells Star.
Oh, and I have to wonder… what happened to the millions of stretch marks she had on her super streched-out belly? Remember those? Hmmm!
Even if you don’t like Heidi Montag, it’s hard not to feel concerned for her these days. The 23-year-old had 10 plastic surgery procedures on November 20th in one day.
• Mini brow lift
• Botox in foreheard and frown area
• Nose job revision
• Fat injections in cheeks, nasalabial folds and lips
• Chin reduction
• Neck liposuction
• Ears pinned back
• Breast augmentation revision
• Liposuction on waist, hips, inner and outer thighs
• Buttock augmentation
In recent interviews following her procedurs, she’s made glib statements about wanting “to go bigger for [Spencer]” and picking out her various “new” body parts by looking at Playboy back issues. “Nobody ages perfectly, so I plan to keep using surgery to make me as perfect as I can be,” Heidi told People. “Because, for me, the surgery is always so rewarding.”
“I do love it and I appreciate it and I appreciate the science behind it,” she explained. “We are blessed to even have this surgery that we have. We’re so advanced. If Cleopatra were alive now, I’m sure she’d have triple D’s … there’s always been a struggle between pain and beauty. I feel like since the beginning of time.”
“I actually want [size] H for Heidi,” she admitted to “Extra.”
