We're happy to hear that Jennifer Capriati is recovering from her prescription pill overdose on Sunday, but the former tennis great has a long road to recovery says a friend.

Former professional tour player Justin Gimelstob told The Early Show on CBS this morning that his pal "has a huge void that she needs to fill" in life, now that sports are no longer an option.

"She's in tremendous pain physically and mentally. She struggled with depression, and it's a tough story," Gimelstob said.

Exactly, Sports Illustrated: Jennifer Capriati was only 13 when she debuted on the women's tour. That's the problem she now faces.

Capriati may own three Grand Slam titles and a Gold Medal, but the 34-year old never enjoyed a regular childhood and the "social interaction" to help her later in life, added Gimelstob:

"She said tennis gives her structure. Without that, that's when the problems ensue, and she's had trouble finding an identity and a sense of purpose."

A somewhat apt comparison could likely be made here between Capriati and Lindsay Lohan, couldn't it? The latter fell off the rails as her movie career fell apart.

In closing, Gimelstob said Capriati's mother is remaining as positive as she can: "[Jennifer's mom] is a very religious woman. She said God is good [and] God is taking care of [Jen]."

Miley Cyrus has made it painfully clear for weeks now: she simply cannot be tamed.

But while this may be true in her wardrobe choices, the singer was cut down to size on the music charts last week. Her latest album, "Can't Be Tamed," finished third in sales, behind Eminem's "Recovery" and Drake's "Thank Me Later."

It was expected that Eminem would lead the way, but not by this wide of a margin. His new CD had the biggest opening week of any in 2010, moving over 753,000 copies.

As for Miley? She has to be disappointed, as "Can't Be Tamed" sold just 106,000 albums. That's an astounding 250,000 fewer than Cyrus' 2008 effort, "Breakout," sold during its first week of release.

Sales

Miley's fans will surely complain about our biased coverage now and make up excuses for their favorite artist. And that's fine, that's their right and we admire their passion.

But numbers don't lie: recent poll results show 70% of respondents laugh at the idea of Cyrus as a role model; moreover, her new CD actually sold fewer copies than her previous CD sold in its second week of release.

As we've been saying all along, is it possible Miley's new image may have gotten her attention, but turned away her fan base? Might she have been better served by slowly evolving as an artist, as opposed to pulling every transparent, cheap trick in the book just to prove she's changed?

These are questions Miley, her handlers and her cult-like followers will need to consider carefully.

  • I'm So Edgy!
  • A Tired Move

The public - literally! - is not buying Miley's tired attempts to be edgy and mature.

Let's hope you aren't sick of large boobs and poor acting, TV watchers. Because the Kardashian sisters are planning to show up in your living room often this fall.

First, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney will all guest star on the third season premiere of 90210 in September. They'll portray talentless tabloid models with a great publicist and little to offer the world themselves on the episode.

Next, In Touch Weekly reports that Khloe and husband Lamar Odom have signed on for their own reality show. Absolutely shocking news, we know.

"They will be starting to tape in the next few weeks," said a source. "It's about their life: being married, trying to have a baby, and her being a stepmother to his kids. Everything that family does turns to gold. They are all making tons and tons of money."

  • A Kim Signing
  • Two K Sisters

The people most excited about this news? Shenae Grimes and AnnaLynne McCord. Those two won't be the worst actresses on at least one episode of 90210 now.

While The Twilight Saga may boast an impressive, deep cast, let's face it: this franchise is all about its three main stars.

For that reason, New Moon fell a bit flat, as Robert Pattinson scarcely appeared as Edward and we were left with too much of Bella sitting around and simply pondering her life. Granted, Taylor Lautner took his shirt off a lot, but here's the great news about Eclipse:

Jacob is once again topless most of the time - but he isn't the only one heating up the screen. Having been treated to a screening of Eclipse, we can confirm: it's by far the most action-packed of all three Twilight films, and it's also the best. Here's why:

Bella's internal conflict has external consequences. Jacob or Edward? Edward or Jacob? This love triangle is at the forefront of the film, but it's placed against the backdrop of a centuries-old feud between werewolves and vampires.

This is far more than typical teenage angst; this is Bella needing to make a decision, the ramifications of which will impact all the lives around her. When Jacob and Edward agree to an alliance in order to protect the girl they love, even men in the audience might stand up and cheer. It's exciting, selfless stuff.

The movie has a sense of humor. Early on, Edward says of Jacob: "Doesn't he own a shirt?" It's a cute, light-hearted wink at the audience and the pop culture phenomenon the franchise has become.

Jacob vs. Edward. Choosing a Team in this rivalry is a necessity for all fans, and Eclipse sets up more of a dichotomy than ever before. At one point, Bella complains that Edward won't "unzip before marriage." Meanwhile, Jacob simply oozes sweat and sex appeal. The former is old school, the latter... well, he's ready to pounce. These differences make Bella's dilemma all the more stark, which makes it that much more interesting to watch.

The tent scene. Trust us.

Carrie Prejean is about to get married.

Not to a woman, of course. That would be disgusting and against everything the bible tells us, according to the beauty queen.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

Instead, the disgraced former Miss California will walk down the aisle on Friday alongside someone she can truly admire: a busted first round NFL draft pick with a career passer rating of 70.6.

Multiple sources confirm that Prejean and Kyle Boller have blocked out rooms at the Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego this weekend, as they plan a lavish wedding that definitely won't include Donald Trump or any THG employee, after we ranked Carrie as the second-biggest Turkey of 2009.

Prejean and Boller got engaged in February.

Since then, we've heard little from the beauty queen that once told us how much God loves fake boobs and who blamed society for her sex tape.

We really miss her.

Earlier this month, Kourtney Kardashian pretended to wax the pubic hair off Khloe Kardashian in one of the most ridiculously scripted moments in reality show history.

Now, sister Kim Kardashian in joining in on the fun - sort of.

The professional celebrity has become the latest star to get the wax figure treatment at Madame Tussauds museum in New York City. She joins such other recently-honored celebs as Robert Pattinson and The Jonas Brothers.

Who knew Madame Tussauds was so into sloppy seconds? Ray J waxed this ass years ago!

In recognition of this event - which proves Madame Tussauds is officially out of talented individuals to sculpt and portray in its halls - Kim wrote on her blog today:

I can finally reveal that I am getting my own wax figure at Madame Tussauds in NYC!!!!

This is one of the greatest honors ever and I am so thrilled and excited. Now I will never have to leave NYC… I’ve officially gone bi-coastal! LOL

As you can see above, the museum has only carved the face so far. It needs to bring in record amounts of wax before it can even get started on Kim's butt and the boobs.

Prior to her appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, Kristen Stewart showed off a shorter, dyed hairstyle. Sound off with your thoughts on it NOW.

From there, the Eclipse star proceeded to sit alongside the talk show host... and make things incredibly awkward for all that watched.

We adore Kristen, don't get us wrong. But at some point her shyness stops being endearing and starts just being strange.

This is an actress that's been on the global stage for years now, not some scientist locked in her lab 24/7, yet her stories still trail off and she can't seem to banter at all with the person interviewing her.

Late Show Interview

Near the end of the following four minutes of interviewing Hell, Letterman even has to comfort Stewart, assuring her "you're fine, it's fine."

In her defense, however, the audience didn't offer much help. Those in attendance snickered at any reference Kristen made to Taylor Lautner, taking her quote about her co-star being "active" to mean... who the heck even knows? But something "ooohh" and "ahhh" worthy apparently.

See what we mean below and sound off: Is Kristen cute in these exchanges, or just painfully awkward?

It doesn't get much more tragic than the news Jennifer Hudson received in October 2008: her mother, brother and nephew were all found dead.

The murderer was eventually apprehended and Jennifer has gone on with life as best she can ever since, giving birth to a son and singing the national anthem at Super Bowl XLIII.

Last night, meanwhile, in a VH1 special titled Behind the Music: Jennifer Hudson, the singer opened up about the tragedy for the first time. She referred to it all as a "blur" and added:

"It was surreal. It was like I was outside of myself."

As a sad reminder: on October 24, 2008, Jennifer's mom and sibling were shot to death inside their Chicago residence; the body of her seven-year old nephew was found later in an abandoned SUV.

Twice the Talent

For two weeks after the incident, Hudson says "I was pretty much secluded from everything that was going on.

"I didn't watch any TV, I didn't even want to know what was going on because I had more than enough to deal with... I prayed when I got up in the morning and prayed before I laid down at night. If I didn't, I'd wake up depressed."

Referring to her son, Hudson concluded with: "[David] makes me feel like the most special person on earth. I want him to get the same love and the same upbringing my mother gave us."

Watch the full interview below and send out your thoughts to Jennifer now.

Amy Locane is in serious trouble with the law.

The actress, who appeared on the original Melrose Place and played a small role in the 2002 movie Secretary, crashed into the side of another car in Montgomery, New Jersey on Sunday night, killing the woman in the passenger's seat of that vehicle.

The second driver involved was taken to a nearby hospital, while Locane was arrested on the spot for DUI. The New Jersey Star-Ledger reports the actress admitted to drinking several glasses of wine prior to the accident.

Amy Locane Mug Shot

Incredibly, Locane rear-ended another car before getting into this major crash. She fled that scene, but was followed by a driver who phoned police and said Locane was "swerving and knocking down several mailboxes."

A mother of two, Locane has been charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree assault by auto. She could face 10 years in prison if convicted.

UPDATE: In December, the actress was indicted in New Jersey on charges of aggravated manslaughter.
