Having recently rid herself of a certain pig, Christie Brinkley surrounded herself with some nicer, more supportive creatures, visiting a local petting zoo while hosting the Wild Wild West Family Day Carnival in Water Mill, N.Y., Sunday ...
Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman, 71, has been seriously injured in a car accident in Ruleville, Mississippi.
The star was in a one car accident around 11:30 p.m. last night north of the small Southern town near where he calls home.
The vehicle in which he was traveling flipped several times. He and female passenger Demaris Meyer were rescued using the Jaws Of Life.
Morgan Freeman was airlifted from the scene of the accident to a hospital in Memphis, Tenn. Alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the wreck, but the actor may have fallen asleep at the wheel.
Freeman is in serious condition, but state troopers say he was talking at the scene before he was taken to the hospital.
We hope that Morgan Freeman, star of Se7en, Million Dollar Baby, The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight and so much more, recovers fully and quickly.
Anorexic actress Mary-Kate Olsen has refused to be interviewed by the FBI, which is probing the accidental drug death of her close friend Heath Ledger unless she receives immunity from prosecution, reports say.
According to the New York Post, the actress' lawyer has repeatedly rebuffed attempts by the feds to question Olsen - the first person called after her masseuse discovered Heath Ledger's lifeless body in his SoHo apartment.
Frustrated officials may go so far as to obtain a grand-jury subpoena to compel the fashion-challenged actress to talk about The Dark Knight star's behavior, his alleged drug use and the events of that fateful morning in January.
Officials have been interviewing everyone connected to Heath Ledger and his death, including doctors, the masseuse, bodyguards, maids, business associates and even the mother of his 2-year-old daughter, Matilda, Michelle Williams.
"Ms. Williams was extremely nice and cooperative," a source said. "In fact, everyone has been very eager to help, saying what a great guy Heath Ledger was, everyone except Mary-Kate Olsen, who has refused to speak."

Doug Reinhardt who?
The Hills star Lauren Conrad has been playing it coy when asked about the recent reports from pals – supported by sightings at several L.A. parties in the last couple of weeks – that she and My Boys actor Kyle Howard are an item.
"I'm just dating," Conrad said Saturday at the Do Something Awards Pre-Party for the Teen Choice Awards. "I'm single and having fun."
Kyle Howard was even more direct - and less forthcoming. "I'm not going to answer that," he said at the Celebrity Kickball Classic in Malibu.
Oddly enough, they met through LC's ex, Brody Jenner, a few weeks ago, a friend says, and were seen together at Crown Bar on July 23.
"They were almost on top of each other," a witness says.
A few days later, they were spotted at the Project Beach House in Malibu and at jazz night at Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.
Do you think Lauren Conrad and Kyle Howard are a cute couple?
One is fired up and ready to go. The other is juiced up and ready to go to prison for perjury. Ladies and gentlemen, today's celebrity birthdays, Barack Obama (47) and Roger Clemens (46)! Click to enlarge the pics below!
Here's a shocker. Doug Reinhardt, Lauren Conrad's boyfriend on the upcoming season of The Hills, is kissing and telling.
"She a good kisser," he tells E! Online of LC's smooching style.
These two actually go way back. They both lived in Laguna Beach (Doug's sis Casey Reinhardt actually appeared on that show in a supporting role) and dated briefly during high school after being introduced by Lo Bosworth.
As for Stephanie Pratt's claims to celebrity news tabloids last week that he and L.C. only dated for about "two weeks," Doug Reinhardt, who's hitting a miserable .201 over three years in minor league baseball, disagrees.
Doug Reinhardt insists his relationship with Lauren Conrad was "fairly serious."
If that's the case, whose idea was that so-called date between he and Stephanie Pratt, as shown in The Hills' Season Four trailer?
"Let's just say it wasn't mine," Doug says.
As for his love life now, he's currently "single and ready to mingle."
Looks like Lauren Conrad feels the same way: She's been spotted spending QT with My Boys actor Kyle Howard. More on that a little later.
You know you've dropped the political ball when Kathy Hilton of all people is criticizing you - and making a lot of sense in doing so.
Kathy is slamming GOP Presidential candidate John McCain for his recent ad featuring her daughter Paris. Barack Obama was mockingly likened to the younger Hilton and Britney Spears, presumably because he's a big celebrity too.
The Hiltons are especially pissed because they donated $4,600 to the McCain campaign - the maximum allowed, $2,300, per person.
Kathy told the Huffington Post:
"I've been asked again and again for my response to the now infamous John McCain celebrity ad. I actually have three responses. It is a complete waste of the money John McCain's contributors have donated to his campaign. It is a complete waste of the country's time and attention at the very moment when million of people are losing their homes and their jobs. And it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next President of the United States."
Wow. We can't believe we're actually saying this about the woman to gave birth to Paris Hilton, but agreed, agreed and agreed.
Seriously. We might as well rename our celebrity fashion category the Katie Holmes fashion nightmare category. The material is endless.
Last week, it was her circa 1991 jeans. Oh so sexy. This weekend, it's a little thing Mrs. Cruise likes to call "referee chic." What a bust.
Don't even get us started on Katie Holmes' hair, either. Sometimes, married people just let themselves go. It's the only way to explain it.
Do you love or hate Katie Holmes' zebra outfit?
Just saying. While a little cushion for one's pushin' is never discouraged, Britney Spears has kind of let herself go. See below. Amazing, because he we thought that smoking reduced one's appetite. If there was ever a need for a celebrity diet ...
