Former child star and actor Gary Coleman of Diff'rent Strokes fame has died. He was 42. He was taken off life support earlier today and passed away.

The diminutive Coleman passed away at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo after suffering a brain hemorrhage and losing consciousness.

A resident of Santaquin, Utah, Coleman had been hospitalized Wednesday and lost consciousness the next day. He was on life support until this afternoon.

Born with failed kidneys, Coleman had undergone two transplants by age 14 and his growth was permanently stunted by the side effects of dialysis.

The precocious, chubby-cheeked Coleman was just 10 when Diff'rent Strokes debuted on NBC in 1978. The popular show lasted for eight seasons.

R.I.P. Gary Coleman (1968-2010).

The scene-stealing Gary quickly became a pop-culture icon, whose recurring line "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?" became a national catchphrase.

At the height of his TV series success, Coleman reportedly earned $64,000 per week and is said to have made some $18 million during his heyday.

His acting career as an adult fell far short of his glory days, however, with only occasional guest appearances and small roles in films and TV movies.

Coleman has had encounters with the law in recent years, including just this February, when he accepted a plea deal on domestic violence charges.

That stemmed from an incident with wife Shannon Price, who took him off life support today. Gary's health problems also escalated in recent years.

Hopefully he is now at peace. Our condolences to Gary Coleman's family, friends and fans in this difficult time. He will be remembered and missed.

Charlie Sheen is preparing to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge stemming from his Christmas assault on wife Brooke Mueller - but will he go to jail?

As part of a plea deal with the Colorado District Attorney's office, Charlie may be facing as many as 45 days in the slammer in Aspen's Pitkin County Jail.

Charlie Sheen 20/20 Interview

In exchange for Sheen's plea, a felony menacing charge will be dropped.

Sheen's next court appearance is set for June 7, where his plea deal can be entered and his trial in the case (currently set for July 21) therefor canceled.

As for what his punishment will be, sources connected with the case say the D.A. in Aspen and Charlie's lawyers have hammered out four scenarios ...

Charlie Sheen's assault on Brooke Mueller will result in a legal reprimand next week. But the actor is reportedly unsure which of the below scenarios he is willing to accept.

  1. Charlie pleads guilty to a misdemeanor and serve 30 days in jail. He enters the plea June 7 and immediately begins serving time. With good behavior, it could truncate to 17 days. After that stint, the case is closed. No probation.
  2. Charlie pleads guilty to a misdemeanor and receives no jail time, but is placed on two years probation. Sounds great, but if the star slips up, the judge could throw the book at him and he could be facing far more than 30 days in jail.
  3. Charlie receives "deferred prosecution," i.e. the case will not go forward but the Two and a Half Men star must agree to various conditions, like not breaking the law. After a certain period of compliance, the matter would be expunged.
  4. Go to trial. Sheen is reportedly upset at the Tito Ortiz case, in which the UFC star was not prosecuted, even after allegations similar to those made against Sheen. This would be a huge roll of the dice, because losing ensures jail time.

It's all in his hands at this point, so stay tuned.

The manager of Gary Coleman is asking for our "thoughts and prayers" as the former child star, now 42, is on life support after suffering a brain hemorrhage.

He suffered the injury in his Utah home on Wednesday. Coleman was hospitalized for treatment, his manager John Alcantar said, and was in critical condition.

Things took a turn for the worse, though, when Coleman was transferred to the ICU at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center for further tests and treatment:

"As of May 27, Mr. Coleman was conscious and lucid. By early afternoon, Mr. Coleman was slipping in and out of consciousness and his condition worsened.

"We are very saddened to announce that since mid-afternoon, Mountain Time, on May 27, 2010, Mr. Coleman has been unconscious and on life support."

Alcantar says that despite Coleman's recent history of health problems and personal issues, "he always has had fond memories of being an entertainer."

"He appreciates his fans for all their support. At this critical moment, we can only ask for thoughts and prayers for Gary to make a speedy, full recovery."

If it's any consolation, Bret Michaels also suffered a brain hemorrhage and bounced back from similarly long odds. Here's hoping Coleman can do the same.

Paris Hilton may have supported the troops this week, but other major celebrities were focused on an equally vital cause:

The Los Angeles Lakers march to a second consecutive NBA championship.

A-listers such as David Beckham and Zac Efron were courtside for the Lakers' game against the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference Finals. Los Angeles eeked out a 103-101 victory on a last-second put back by Ron Artest.

Also in the front row? Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries... together! Let the dating rumors swirl.

At this point, it's looking like a matter of when, not if Tiger Woods gets divorced from wife Elin. But until that happens, his handlers want him under lock and key.

According to reports, the golfer's legal team told him he won't be able to date until the split is completely finalized. The reason? Well, it's kind of obvious, right?

Says a source close to the situation:

"Elin's building a character case [based on serial philandering]. Elin's team is watching Tiger's every move. She wants more money than Michael Jordan's ex got."

Jordan's ex-wife reportedly received $168 million. Elin is said to want $750 million (!) which may be a stretch, but even if she gets a quarter of that ... wow.

Tiger's reaction to being barred from dating was likely similar.

She certainly has enough material on Tiger to make a compelling case as it is. If he were caught mauling Joslyn James or that Elin Woods look-alike, though? Wow.

As for custody of the couple's two small children?

"They'll share it, but she wants the ability to take them to Sweden whenever she wants," says the insider. Tiger wants the right to object in court - here or abroad.

Things are already getting ugly, too. His other main hangup? He wants this confidential - now and 'til the end of time. As in no interviews or books by Elin. Ever.

She's balking at that so far. Stay tuned ...

It has now been a year since the marriage of Kate and Jon Gosselin ended.

The weeks prior to the tearful, on-air confessionals confirming the split (and garnering record ratings) on Jon & Kate Plus 8 were a train wreck of epic proportions.

Rumors of Jon nailing his pal Deanna Hummel were the first to surface. Then Kate and Steve Neild. Then Jon and Hailey Glassman, Stephanie Santoro, and so on.

As their family crumbled under the microscope of celebrity gossip magazines and websites, Kate acknowledges there were difficult moments for their eight kids.

"[Nine-year-old daughter Cara] was upset with me because I forgot to sign them up for something at school," Kate tells People in its new cover story this week.

HAPPY DAZE: Jon and Kate Plus Eight, Minus Bitterness.

"I said, 'Cara, I had a really rough year. This is a new year. You've got to give me that. Let's start over.' So I've really worked to keep my word with them."

In general, Kate says, her children – twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel – have weathered the storm well.

"They're just amazing, resilient, loving kids."

The reality TV mom and her children will return to TLC in a new, revamped Kate Plus 8, airing June 6. The family recently filmed the show in Orlando, Fla.

There, they also celebrated the sextuplets' sixth birthday. Back home, they also got to see dad ... and were introduced to Jon's new girlfriend Ellen Ross.

Poor kids. Hang in there, y'all.

Paris Hilton has taken a break from harassing Doug Reinhardt with phone calls to focus on a slightly more important task:

Supporting American troops.

The socialite showed up in New York City this week at "Swinging Salute to Our Troops," an event sponsored by the USO. Even though one officer below didn't seem excited to pose with Paris, it's the thought that counts. Gotta give her props for the effort.

Yay Troops!

Earlier this spring, Kim Kardashian was also honored by the troops. What's with these guys and former sex tape stars?

We guess that answer is obvious, huh? They are still warm-blooded males, after all. They may have enormous hearts and courage that the average individual can scarcely comprehend - but they also have penises.

Check out more shots of Paris and the soldiers now:

Talk about typecasting. Lindsay Lohan landed a role in which she has to look trashy, dress in next to nothing and lie flat on her back - pretty much her entire skill set!

Amazingly, the photos below weren't taken during a typical night out on the Hollywood club scene, but for posters promoting her upcoming porn star biopic Inferno.

Lindsay Lohan: What a Boob

Lohan plays Linda Lovelace, the late porno legend famous for her role in Deep Throat. The pics used in the posters below were taken by photographer Tyler Shields.

We thought Lindsay looked like she was ready for Cinemax in previous photos Shields took of her. Who would have guessed that wasn't even that far off the mark.

Hopefully Lohan's ankle bracelet won't get in the way of the many tricky maneuvers she likely must perform as part of this rigorous role. That would be a shame.

INFERNO: Lindsay Lohan as Linda Lovelace. Somehow it fits.

Miley Cyrus is about to make her primetime, network television debut.

Just a few days before her new album is released on June 22, ABC will air a one-hour special titled Miley Cyrus: Live from London.

It will be centered around footage from the singer's concert at O2 Arena in England, which was part of her Wonder World Tour. According to an ABC press release:

The program captures how Miley, who has grown up in the public eye, has grown as an artist, and reveals her natural progression and sophistication. The concert is gleaned from the full-length concert that will be available for sale June 22 on the deluxe version of Miley’s album.

Miley Strolls

Look for Cyrus to perform some of her biggest hits during the program, such as “Seven Things,” “Party in the USA” and “The Climb.”

We're sure Miley will explain to the world why she can't be tamed, as well.

This special airs on June 18 at 8 p.m. Will you tune in for it?
