In one of the stranger celebrity news stories we've read in quite awhile, Jeremy Piven has left the Broadway play Speed-the-Plow after suffering "shocking levels" of mercury in his system from eating too much sushi and Chinese herbs.

"I pulled Jeremy from the show," says his doctor, Carlon Colker. "I'm an unpopular character right now."

Responding to skepticism over the decision to leave the play – playwright David Mamet joked that Piven was leaving to "pursue a career as a thermometer" - the doctor says the decision was purely medical, and one Piven initially resisted.

"He's disappointed that I had to pull the plug," says Colker. "But I think he's hurt more by the comments that he's not trying or that he walked away. He's been working straight for 30 years. He doesn't walk away; I tore him away from it."

Jeremy Piven initially came to the doctor after the Speed-the-Plow's Broadway run began in late October, complaining of severe fatigue.

"This was very, very unusual for him," says Colker. "He's known as the iron horse - he's been working nonstop for 30 years, and he works 17-hour days."

Colker tested his "heavy metals" and was "absolutely stunned" to find mercury at a level "almost six times the upper limit of normal and allowable."

Colker attributes the high mercury count to Piven's habit of eating sushi, often twice a day, compounded by certain Chinese herbs he took "for general health."

Piven was ordered to put a moratorium on the fish and herbs. Here's wishing the actor a speedy return to health and hilarious Entourage quotes.

Leaving the drama that swirls around him and ex-wife Denise Richards far away (or at least in L.A.) Charlie Sheen and wife Brooke Mueller, who's very pregnant with twins, relaxed at a resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on Wednesday...

FAMILY OF FOUR: Charlie Sheen wed Brooke Mueller in May of this year. They wasted little time getting pregnant with twins! Her pregnancy was first announced in August.

Hopefully, Denise Richards won't diss her baby bump too hard when she sees this photo. You know that psycho will say just about anything to make some news.

Another baby has touched down at the home of Angie Harmon.

The former Women's Murder Club and Law & Order star and her retired NFL star hubby, Jason Sehorn, welcomed their third daughter Thursday, a "healthy baby girl" named Emery Hope Sehorn. Emery joins sisters Finley Faith, 5, and Avery Grace, 3.

Sehorn, who popped the question to his wife of seven years during a Tonight Show taping, told the magazine in September that his older girls were "very excited."

But the couple didn't want their pregnancy to be a public affair - when Harmon was four months along, the couple denied rumors they were expecting, "to take back the right to release the joyous news themselves," the actress' rep said.

Congrats to Angie and Jason. Clearly, these two are going to produce some absolutely gorgeous humans. Check out our full gallery of celebrity baby photos!

An actor who's brought magic to the screen and a guy who's brought it to Vegas showrooms and many women's pants both celebrate their days of birth today.

Happy birthday, Criss Angel and Jake Gyllehaal!

In addition to being a fine-looking fellow, Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the brightest acting stars in Hollywood today. As for Criss Angel? Well, dude sees Holly Madison naked. That's pretty much all he needs on his resume at this point.

So, here's a little photo tribute to our birthday boys. Also celebrating one today? Kate Bosworth boy toy / alleged model James Rousseau! Sorry, James. No room for pics of you, handsome as you are. Kate has a gift for you, we'd imagine.

As we reported yesterday, Spencer Pratt himself is trying to set the record straight about what some (read: all) people think is an entirely staged wedding.

"We checked the confidentiality box, so good luck people," he told E! News' Ryan Seacrest in an interview that will air Monday on his KIIS-FM radio show.

So Wrong on Every Level

But that's not necessarily the case.

Per California law, every marriage is public record. The confidentiality box Spencer hearts so only keeps the date private, not the record of the actual event.

So far there is none.

Cheers to faking our wedding in two different countries!

"We can confirm a confidential marriage if it exists," a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Registrar said. "We don't have anything for them in the system."

Monday's Hills season finale preview shows the duo before an alleged judge and the plastic Heidi Montag spouting what appear to be traditional wedding vows.

But who is even "officiating" at this thing? And was the whole charade even more fake than Heidi's nose, lips and boobs? Read on for more details!

Police in Fargo, N.D., arrested Cisco Adler, best known for that picture of him naked except for tube socks, and for his romantic relationships with various celebrities, on Thursday morning after he punched a bar employee in the nose.

The incident took place during a brawl after his band's show at The Hub.

Halloween Douche

Authorities were called to the Fargo venue about 12:24 a.m. after receiving a report of 15 people brawling and fighting security and management on the northeast corner of the building, according to local police dispatch logs.

Cisco Adler was arrested on suspicion of simple assault and booked into Cass County Jail. There were no problems with the arrest, Claus said, adding the employee made a citizen’s arrest (!?) before police even arrived.

Cisco Adler was released from jail at 1:26 a.m. after posting $500 bail.

Adler is the former frontman of the band Whitestarr, which he left in 2008. He and his new band, Shwayze, had a minor hit this year with "Buzzin'," which was featured on an episode Gossip Girl. But mostly he's known for his giant balls.

Shwayze was performing last night before the fight broke out.

The son of music producer Lou Adler, the Cisco kid has had relationships with various celebrities, including Mischa Barton, Kimberly Stewart, Lauren Conrad and Paris Hilton, according to his Wikipedia page, which he totally must have written.

The first grandchild of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be a boy, her father, Chuck Heath, revealed to the website Grandparents.com, which apparently exists.

Heath, who apparently needs some money or attention, said that his pregnant granddaughter, Bristol Palin, has a due date of December 20 - this Saturday!

Melissa Rycroft, Baby

Asked what Bristol and her baby-daddy-turned-fiance Levi Johnston will name their baby, Heath answered, "Oscar ... No, I'm just kidding." Good one, Chuck!

Seen here at the RNC in August, Bristol Palin cradles baby brother Trig while Levi Johnston stares solemnly at the floor, lamenting not using a condom.

In reality, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston don't have a name for it yet, but there are 87 boxes of unopened mail that might contain some suggestions.

Here are some baby names we think would be fitting of Sarah Palin's grandson. Vote for your favorite, and/or leave a comment with your own!

Jennifer Aniston has one of the best heads of hair in Hollywood - among other attributes, as her 2009 calendar and that amazing nude GQ cover have proven.

The Marley & Me star showed off her gorgeous hairstyle at the film's premiere, rocking relaxed layers with a little texture for good measure. She's stunning.

Perhaps taking a cue from the actress is The Hills' Lauren Conrad, who showed off her own long layers this week at the D&G store opening in Los Angeles - albeit with a wavy twist and a pretty black bow to add some flair ...
