The 58-year-old Rush, who has an army of 20 million listeners, was taken to Queen's Medical Center in serious condition, station KITV said.

Limbaugh's lawyer, Roy Black, told CNN he couldn't confirm reports that he had a heart attack but said he was "concerned" about Limbaugh.

Rush Limbaugh reportedly suffered a heart attack yesterday.

The popular talk show host was vacationing for several days in Hawaii and was seen playing on a golf course nearby. It is unclear if he is still in the hospital.

Limbaugh has increasingly been seen as a key leader in the Republican Party, and a top-rated voice on radio for years who earns up to $50 million a year.

A rep from his program said in a statement: "Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today after suffering chest pains."

You may never actually reside on Pennsylvania Avenue, but most Americans say they wouldn't mind living next door to Barack, Michelle, Sasha, Malia and Bo.

President Obama, his wife and two daughters came out on top of a recent poll that asked people who would be their most desirable celebrity neighbor.

On the other end of the neighbor spectrum?

A reality star like Octomom and her 14 kids, or Jon and Kate Gosselin and their brood of eight would be a big turn off, according to the informal survey.

In related news, Amy Winehouse is unstable.

THEY'RE #1: Politics aside, the Obamas sure seem like nice people!

Barack and Michelle Obama were followed by Ellen DeGeneres and partner Portia de Rossi, who tied with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and family at #2.

The poll by real estate site Zillow.com also found that celebrity families with large broods, like regular people, were deemed the worst likely neighbors.

Nadya Suleman, the single mom who this year added octuplets to her existing brood of six, topped the worst celebrity neighbor poll with 17 percent.

Octomom was followed by Jon and Kate Gosselin, who fortunately are no longer together. Or unfortunately, as their awfulness has now branched out.

KEEP OUT: No one wants to live next to these people.

In a reflection of her polarizing nature, former Republican V.P. contender Palin was a popular choice, but also came in third in the worst neighbor category.

She was no match for Octomom or Jonny Boy, though.

Amy Bohutinsky, Zillow.com V.P. of communications, astutely noted that "Apparently Americans are opposed to living next door to a brood of young children, particularly those that come with a television crew and paparazzi."

An Ohio lawman just got Carried away ... to jail!

Martins Ferry, Ohio, Police Chief Barry Carpenter was found guilty last month of snooping around the residence of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick's surrogate mother, searching for souvenirs that he tried to sell to the tabloids.

He was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison after being convicted for receiving stolen property, theft in office and tampering with evidence.

Michelle Ross, who gave birth last June to the celebrity couple's twin girls, was not at home at the time of the incident, but she discovered items misplaced.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick with their two little girls.

Among the items Carpenter ganked were a plaster cast of her belly, ultrasound pictures and various surrogate documents with tax information. Obviously.

The police chief was later caught red-handed on audiotapes recorded by internal affairs investigators approaching paparazzi to hock the mementos for cash.

The policeman did catch a break, however: He could've gotten the maximum of six years in the slammer, but he was also acquitted on charges of burglary.

His attorney said he plans to appeal the sentence.

Advertisers, natives of Seaside Heights, N.J., and most people with morals hate it, but Jersey Shore's Nicole Polizzi isn't worried about negative stereotypes.

When Steppin' Out magazine asked "Snooki" what she would say to all the companies who have pulled ads from the controversial MTV show, she stated:

"I just have one thing to say to Domino's, Dell, UNICO and all the other haters out there: F**k you! If you don't want to watch, then don't watch."

Snooki added: "Just shut the hell up! I'm serious... F**k you!"

You can see how she ended up getting punched in the face. We're not saying she deserved it, just that you can see where Brad Ferro was coming from.

Snooki calls herself "the f*%king Princess of Poughkeepsie." Enough said.

UNICO, the Italian-American organization that claims the show perpetuates negative stereotypes, plans to keep pressuring sponsors to boycott the show.

"She is not an embarrassment to Italian Americans. She is actually an embarrassment to the entire human race!!!!" UNICO said of Snooki in a statement.

No comment.

Italian-American groups and advertisers aren't the only ones pissed. Even the New Jersey town that's home to the series wants nothing to do with it.

Tomorrow night, they'll have even more Jersey Shore quotes to get offended by. The show returns in its usual, Thursday time slot at 10 p.m. on MTV.

All Taylor Momsen wants to be taken seriously. And a music career. And to be treated like she's not 16. And not to be compared to Lindsay Lohan.

Although the 16-year-old Gossip Girl cast member has an edgy, beyond-her-years look, she resents any comparisons to another former child star.

"I get such a bad rap for being like Lindsay Lohan," Momsen says in the February issue of Seventeen, denying that she has train wreck qualities.

"I hate naming names because she's really sweet, but I don't go out. I have no desire to be some party girl. I'm a loner. I always have been."

But the actress, who made her big Hollywood debut in 2000's How the Grinch Stole Christmas, does embrace her reputation as an "angsty" teen.

"I'll be angsty until I'm 80 years old," she says. "I think it keeps things fresh. But I think that angst is such a derogatory word toward teenagers."

"It just means you're figuring sh!t out."

In addition to acting, Taylor fronts the punk-rock band The Pretty Reckless. She complains that "people don't take me seriously" because of her age.

She's different than people her age, she insists.

"[People] think most 16-year-olds don't know what they want to do. But I actually really do, because I've been thinking about [music] since I was 2."

Don't worry, Taylor. Soon you'll be 17 ... and you can then be compared to another 17-year-old who knows just what she wants: Miley Cyrus.

Erik Gates, who made numerous appearances on the show Mythbusters, died recently after a freak accident in which he fell 30 feet from a building to his death.

Mythbusters is a Discovery Channel favorite and Erik Gates made regular visits to the show, where he also founded a website dedicated to his rocketry work.

Not many details are available at this time, but it is believed that Gates was walking across the roof of a building which he and a colleague were working on.

Reports are suggesting that Erik Gates fell through a skylight and suffered blunt force injuries, which he was then taken to hospital and later passed away.

This tragic loss of life is just the latest in a long string of sad celebrity deaths of 2009. We wish Erik's family and friends the best as they cope with his loss.

Leggings? That was so October.

While Lindsay Lohan’s troubles as artistic advisor at Ungaro were well documented, the "actress" is not letting that slow down her pursuit of fashion glory.

Production of her own signature 6126 leggings line is going strong, and yesterday the troubled star took to Twitter to reveal her forthcoming style project.

The fashion disaster is expanding the collection beyond hosiery. She wrote:

“I need MORE followers i am so sad about this, how can i tell everyone about my 6126 full collection COMING OUT! all clothing.” Whatever that means.

Lohan Leggings

Lindsay Lohan: A style trend-setter if ever there were one.

Women's Wear Daily says her expanded collection will launch for fall 2010 and feature 100 useless pieces that range from $18 leggings to a $300 jacket.

The following spring the Lindsay Lohan line will grow even further, to encompass 150 terrible items, including handbags, shoes, jewelry and cosmetics.

The irony?

More people have probably seen Lindsay Lohan nude than have purchased items from her clothing line. Perhaps she should look into selling that for money.

We know former lovers Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman didn't exactly part ways on the best of terms - but was there a physical altercation involved?

The New York Post seems to think so, and you have to wonder if things were worse than imagined, possibly leading to his apartment getting trashed.

A source says Jon slammed Hailey against the wall of their NYC pad after he saw a photo of her kissing Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman.

There was also a report of Jon pseudo-stalking her that night.

"That picture started the whole thing, a picture of her kissing another man," a source said of Feldman, who hooked up with Hailey a few weeks ago.

Hails

Did Jon and Hailey's arguments turn physical?

Earlier, Hailey Glassman "found out he was cheating on her. She told him it was over," the source added. She moved out in the middle of last week.

Glassman filed a harassment complaint with the NYPD, saying "she was pushed against [a] wall" on December 20 and verbally abused by Gosselin.

That allegation is under investigation by the police.

"The document speaks for itself," said Glassman's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia. Jon's lawyer, Mark Heller, responded that "Jon is a lover, not a fighter."

Heller also noted, like a total idiot, that "he's been rumored to steal a kiss here and there, but he's never been accused of landing a sucker punch."

Brangelina gossip is the best.

Do these two actually do anything besides star in movies and spend time with their kids? Sounds like a great life, but it's not enough for Star and its ilk.

According to tabloids: Their marriage is an act; Angelina plays mind games; She wants baby #7, Brad moved out; Brad meets with Jennifer Aniston; Angelina had declared war on Jen; She contemplated suicide; She's plotting a revenge pregnancy.

That's only in the last three months, too!

The latest from the venerable writers at Star: Angelina Jolie has been cheating on Brad Pitt, and in turn, "the love is gone" from their hot relationship.

She's apparently "come clean" about other lovers (Johnny Depp, perhaps), and Brad said "I'm outta here" for the 12th time since mid-September.

These supermarket magazine covers never cease to amuse. Look at Brad on a motorcycle! That means "I'm outta here (to pick up something at the store)!"

In other news, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce have weight loss tricks, Brittany Murphy had demons and Charlie Sheen had a Christmas outburst that left his marriage to Brooke Mueller in tatters. Hey, at least one of those items is actually true!

Lil Wayne, a.k.a. Dwayne Carter III, has become a top-selling musician known for clever wordplay, risque lyrics and knocking up lots of different women.

He's also staring at a year behind bars.

The rapper returned to his hometown of New Orleans for a Monday concert on what he's calling his "farewell" tour. As in farewell to the outside world.

"I'm nothing without you," Wayne, who will be sentenced February 9 after a weapons possession conviction, told a wild crowd at New Orleans Arena.

A BIG HOUSE FOR A LIL WAYNE: He'll be sentenced in February.

The charge that will land L-Dubs in prison stemmed from a 2007 traffic stop of his tour bus in New York when authorities said they smelled marijuana, and as they approached, he tossed aside a bag with a loaded .40-caliber handgun.

In two separate cases, he faces trial in March on felony drug possession and weapons charges in Yuma County, Ariz., and recently, he had to postpone a show after police stopped two of his buses in Texas and found marijuana on board.

Not good with those mouths to feed. Guy had three sons in one year. Do the math on that one. Box of Trojans? $14.99. Eighteen years of child support ...
