Music icon Madonna is renowned for her fitness and figure despite passing the half-century mark. But she may just be taking her workouts a bit too seriously.

Photos taken showing her bulging veins have made people a little freaked out by Madonna's biceps, instead of impressed by them. They appear a bit alien-like.

The “freakish” Madonna pictures were taken Sunday in London.

The star was eating out with her reported model boyfriend, Jesus Luz, and as she was leaving, some photos of her were taken that have been widely critiqued.

Madonna follows a strict exercise regimen of two-hour workouts six days a week while drinking coconut water to keep energy levels high. Possibly too high.

The pop star is monitored by personal trainer Tracy Anderson, to whom she was introduced by Gwyneth Paltrow. Anderson told the UK's Daily Mail the following:

"I have completely changed Madonna’s body. I told her to forget everything she had been taught before and give up yoga, which can make you look very veiny."

The trainer further distanced herself from the freaky biceps: "Madonna’s very healthy and looks fantastic but those veins have nothing to do with me."

Makes you wonder if Madge took steroids with former boy boy A-Rod.

Apparently getting paid by the word to trash Amy Winehouse in celeb gossip tabloids across Britain, Blake Fielder-Civil's latest revelations involve his former wife cheating throughout their marriage - with four different dudes, as a matter of fact.

Fielder-Civil claims Wino has confessed all of this.

"There may be others. But if there are, she hasn't told me," Blake says.

We would feel sorry for the man, but then again, he has already confessed this week to getting her hooked on heroin, and spent most of their union in jail.

Oh, and the fact that he started dating teenage Francesca Morralee before a divorce was even final, and is said to have knocked up Gilleen Morris in rehab.

Guess it takes a cracked-out serial adulterer to know a serial adulterer.

Michael Jackson's chef, Kai Chase, is speaking out about the day the King of Pop died and the role played by the singer's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.

Chase said she knew something was amiss when Murray didn't come downstairs to get the juices and granola he routinely brought Michael Jackson each morning.

Kai also said she was also used to seeing the doctor coming down the steps carrying oxygen tanks. But Murray didn't come downstairs on the morning of June 25.

"I thought maybe Mr. Jackson is sleeping late," Chase said.

"I started preparing the lunch and then I looked at my cell phone and it was noon. About 12:05 or 12:10 Dr. Murray runs down and screams, 'Go get Prince!'"

"He's screaming loud. I run to the den where the kids are playing. Prince runs to meet Dr. Murray and from then on, the energy in the house just changed."

"I walked into the hall and I saw the children there. The daughter (Paris Jackson) was crying," Kai Chase continued. "I saw paramedics running up the stairs."

Celebrity chef Kai Chase has also worked with numerous other stars.

Then, a small group consisting of the three children, their nanny (Grace Rwaramba) and Chase held hands and began to pray in a circle, the chef recalled.

As paramedics raced to the room - with Jackson already dead - Chase said, "We were all praying, 'Help Mr. Jackson be O.K.' "Then everyone was very quiet."

At about 1:30 p.m. she said that security guards told her and other staff to leave the property because "Mr. Jackson was being taken to the hospital."

Jackson was pronounced dead at 2:26 p.m.

Authorities raided the home and office of Murray's in Las Vegas Tuesday, following a raid last week at his clinic and storage facility in Houston last week.

Investigators believe Jackson died from a fatal dose of Propofol, an anesthetic allegedly supplied by Dr. Conrad Murray sometime the morning of June 25.

After a crazy week and a half of galavanting around with his new mediocre girlfriends (plural) Jon Gosselin finally returned home to see his eight kids.

Smoking a cigarette, Jon was spotted Tuesday in Wernersville, Pa., at a car wash, a UPS store and the bank, as well as the Gosselins' home, of course.

Here's the newly-single role model back on his home turf, looking as classy as ever and showing the world why he has become such a true player ...

Grade A Douchebag

Jon had been in New York City, where he recently set up shop in a bachelor pad on the Upper West Side and found himself embroiled in serious gossip.

After being spotted with 22-year-old stoner Hailey Glassman, and parading her around France during a "business" trip, Jon Gosselin was then romantically linked to a Star Magazine reporter, Kate Major, who resigned due to a "conflict of interest."

Jon confirmed that he is in a relationship with Kate Major, but then did an abrupt 180 and said he is single - and vowing to stay out of the headlines.

"It's crazy," he said. "I don't want [eight-year-old twins] Mady and Cara Googling me, and I have to explain [a photo] and lose that trust between my children. It's dumb. Or explain it to my ex, Kate. Or explain to anybody what's going on."

A little late for that, Jon.

Perhaps he should have reexamined these priorities before he cheated on his wife with Deanna Hummel, let alone dated two girls at the same time 15 seconds after filing for divorce. Better get the sextuplets started on therapy ASAP.

Having gotten engaged to Ed Swiderski on The Bachelorette finale, then gone public with him on the "After the Final Rose" special last night, Jillian Harris is retiring from blogging for good. But not before posting one last cute entry!

Not only are Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski still together, they are smitten and planning on getting married within the next 12 months. We wish them all the best.

Here's what Jillian - with special guest Ed - had to say about engagement, their journey on The Bachelorette, and what's next as they begin their life together ...

"Well ... that’s a wrap! I will keep this post short and sweet as I have an eager man waiting for me and wanting to get OUT IN PUBLIC together ... FINALLY!"

"A wise man once said, 'Love, it don’t come easy' - and that is so true. I can honestly say I have found my best friend but it didn’t come without consequences."

"Aside from the crying, surprises, drama, criticism and most importantly, hurting two incredible men that I will never forget - please know that it broke my heart."

"I never imagined in a million years I would have to let two men go that I love so dearly in order to be with the man that I want to spend the rest of my life with."


Ed Swiderski and Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette, and in real life.

"Reid and Kiptyn are unbelievable men. Some have opinions of why I should have picked one or the other. Some see why Ed was perfect for me from the start."

"I embrace ALL of your opinions. I can see why you would all think ALL three of these men would be great for me. For those who want to congratulate my happiness, THANK YOU!!! We are both EXTREMELY happy (still) and it gets better every day."

"The 'After the Final Rose' was not easy. Not for me, and not for Reid or Kiptyn I’m sure. I felt like there was no right way to deal with the situation."

News of LeAnn Rimes' separation from Dean Sheremet saddened friends who had admired their marriage and what they did for each other over seven years.

Alas, her affair with Eddie Cibrian - whose wife, Brandi Glanville, left him as a result - appears to have taken an irreparable toll on Rimes and Sheremet.

Mr. & Mrs. Cibrian

In Nashville, those who knew the couple recall how they never seemed to be apart. Says one friend, "[LeAnn and Dean] were pretty much inseparable here."

The spouses were often spotted together at the gym, dining on the town with friends, dancing at nightclubs and even shopping for LeAnn Rimes' wardrobe.

Dean Sheremet, in fact, is credited with helping his wife – who was 19 when they married – make the transformation from a country girl into a sexy siren.

"When she met Dean, the whole image of who LeAnn Rimes was completely morphed into 'fabulousity,'" says a friend in the music industry.

Sheremet, 28, who choreographed the singer's Chicago-inspired video for "Nothin' Better to Do" in 2007, "saw the potential that was not being tapped."

But sources say it may have been inevitable that they grew apart as they got older. "I don't think it's unusual considering how young they were [when they wed], and the business they're in," says a member of their social circle.

As LeAnn Rimes expanded her career into acting, she spent more time in Los Angeles, while Dean Sheremet, a songwriter, stayed home in Nashville.

Rimes and Sheremet's strong friendship, however, is making it difficult for them to officially split, even as she is spending time with Eddie Cibrian.

It's unclear when – or if – they might seek a divorce "There's still a lot of love and respect between the two of them," says a source close to Sheremet.

The legal team for Katherine Jackson, the late Michael Jackson's mother, has asked a judge for the power to request info on her son's estate from the executors.

Lawyers for Katherine asked for authority to subpoena attorney John Branca and former music exec John McClain, the two men named by the pop icon in his last will as the executors. They want to interview them and search their records.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff will not respond to their request until Monday. On that day, he plans to consider a wide range of matters.

Some close to the situation have suggested that Joe Jackson is driving Katherine's legal challenges to the late singer's will, and that the family is divided.

Issues include whether the special administrators will continue their roles and whether an allowance will be granted to Katherine Jackson and Michael's three children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris Jackson, 11, and Blanket, 7.

Katherine Jackson was named guardian of Michael's three children.

Debbie Rowe is the biological mother of Prince and Paris. As for Blanket Jackson, his mom is unknown, though recent rumors suggest it may be Pia Bhatti.

Tuesday's filing was meant to expedite the process of obtaining "important personal, business and legal information and documents relating to Michael Jackson."

That's according to written statement from L. Londell McMillan, who is part of Katherine Jackson's legal team, in advance of the upcoming August 3 hearing.

They're also seeking "life insurance policies, settlements and disputes as well as agreements between temporary special administrators and Michael Jackson."

Time will tell whether Katherine Jackson is able to make her voice heard - and what the true agenda behind any of this is, as Michael's will seems clear cut.

Friends and former Guns N' Roses band mates Slash and Steven Adler now have another thing in common - a restraining order against Lisa Jill Martin-Cahn.

Adler, the band's drummer from 1985-1990, alleges that the Oregon woman has hired at least three private investigators since 2008 to hunt him down.

According to Steven, this sketchiness was all done "under the ruse" that they were long lost lovers who met back in the early 90's. In rehab, natch.

Adler's documents, filed in L.A. County, say police who visited Cahn at her Oregon home last month found "unopened boxes of house ware items which Cahn stated [were] wedding presents for [her and Steven Adler's] upcoming marriage."

That's not weird or anything.

Former Guns N' Roses rockers Steven Adler, left, and Slash.

As for Slash, he claims Cahn contacted him and his family - including his mother-in-law - by phone and letter in desperate attempts to get in touch with Adler.

Not surprisingly, he is not a fan.

Both restraining orders were granted yesterday - Lisa Jill Martin-Cahn must stay at least 500 yards away from both rockers, their families, work, et cetera.

Jon Gosselin has already gotten his own place and begun romancing a pair of mediocre new girls. Now it's Kate Gosselin's turn to secure a new love nest.

Kate is officially moving to Rockville, Maryland. Woo hoo! If she had any friends, they should totally sign her up to be the next star of The Bachelorette.

The affluent suburb of Washington, D.C. happens to be where bodyguard Steve Neild has his office. Just a block away from Kate's new place, it turns out.

All the better to "protect" her. If you know what we mean. We mean they were said to be having an affair. Though we also heard Jon made that up.

When one stays at the expansive Wernersville, Pa., house where their eight scarred-for-life kids remain, the other takes off to their individual apartments.

They'll barely have to see each other. How pumped is Jon?!

Jon has a condo in New York, where he pays $5,000 per month and has been living the bachelor life, hitting it with both Hailey Glassman and Kate Major.

In the past week alone, he's said that his heart is with Hailey Glassman, that he is in a relationship with Kate Major, and that he's single. What a player.

Who sucks more?

In the wake of getting dumped hard by Tony Romo on the eve of her 29th birthday, Jessica Simpson has decided on the way to get the sweetest revenge.

Or OK! Magazine has at least decided on it for her so it can sell magazines.

Either way, Jessica Simpson is looking to sweat it out at the gym. Yay!

“Right after Tony ended things, Jessica Simpson said, ‘I want my old body back,’” a friend of the singer reveals in the new issue of the celeb news tabloid.

“She went into her kitchen, got a trash bag and started to clear it out.”

Jessica Simpson Diet

Jessica Simpson's "sexy body is back," people!

Getting rid of the bad food isn’t the only way she’s slimming down. Jessica, who was locked out of Tony Romo's gated community, has taken refuge multiple times at her friend and celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak’s fitness center.

“Jessica is serious about getting her body back into fighting shape,” her friend reveals. “Working out is helping to give her focus and clear her head."

Adds this supposed Jessica source, "It’s better than sitting around moping, throwing pity parties with ice cream sundaes.” Well yeah. But would she?

The results are starting to show - Jessica, whose weight gain has often been the subject of celeb gossip, dropped 10 pounds in just the first 10 days!

"She doesn’t want to give anyone reason to not take her seriously,” says the pal.

This pal is apparently unaware that it will take more than dropping 10 pounds for us to start taking her seriously, and that her figure was probably not the reason she got dumped. Being pathetic, needy and annoying? More likely.
