The surprising death of Corey Haim earlier today came after he collapsed in the bedroom of his mother's apartment and four prescription bottles were found.

Law enforcement sources say Corey had been sick the last couple of days with flu-like symptoms, though the medications recovered were not related to his illness.

No illegal drugs were found in the apartment.

Sources say Haim got out of bed this morning and collapsed in front of his mother. She called 911 at 12:53 a.m. Corey was taken to the hospital and died 2:15 a.m.

A witness at the apartment complex says paramedics spent 20 minutes in the apartment before carrying him out on a stretcher with an oxygen mask over his face.

Authorities have wrapped up their preliminary investigation and believe, though they are not yet certain, that Corey died of an accidental drug overdose.

Corey Haim (1971-2010) had battled prescription drug addiction for years.

The troubled actor was approached in the last 10 days by the casting company for Celebrity Rehab, according to reports, but abruptly declined that offer.

Casting producers say he was "extremely defensive, saying, 'It's the last show I'd ever do.'" He ended the conversation saying "I do not need help."

Dude, even DMX wants Dr. Drew's help. Ain't no shame in it.

Haim will forever be tied to his namesake and fellow former child star, Corey Feldman, with whom he starred in several hit films during the 1980s.

Feldman released a statement on the death of his best friend Haim, which he calls "tragic" and begs people to learn a "lesson" from Haim's passing.

In the statement on Feldman's blog, the actor says "My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face."

He adds, "We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference.

As predicted by The Hollywood Gossip, the Kardashians responded publicly to a pair of tabloid covers last week, as all three sisters took to their blogs and shot down stories that were likely planted by their publicists.

Welcome to the circle of publicity this family has established for itself.

Magazine Photo Shoot

The siblings are at it again, as Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are featured in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly. Expect each to act shocked and angered over the report later today, while toasting their PR team at home and basking in another week of headlines...

With Kourtney and Khloe in Miami, filming the second season of their scripted "reality" show, a friend tells the magazine that Scott Disick is acting as douchey as ever:

"In public, he tries to act like the perfect boyfriend because he’s paranoid about what people think of him. But at night, he is the same guy he’s always been. He still parties. He still flirts. He still hangs out with his guy friends. Nothing has changed for him.”

The insider adds that Scott and Kourtney are only "together when they're filming their reality show or being photographed.”

Wait, we're confused. Isn't that all the time?

While Crystal Bowersox broke out the electric guitar last night and put on an incredible show once again, we highlighted her American Idol performance last week.

Therefore, Siobhan Magnus gets the honor this time. The glassblowing apprentice from Cape Cod, Massachuetts sang an entire verse of "House of the Rising Sun" a cappella, remaining in control throughout.

It was a brave, impressive rendition. Crystal might not have the women's crown sewn up, after all. Watch and enjoy:

As she readies for her debut on Dancing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin has a big decision to make. No, not whether to hire Stephanie Santoro to watch the kids.

Stylist Ted Gibson is giving her hair a new look ... but what kind?

Rumor has it that when Kate hits up the salon today, she’ll be back to her famous short 'do. But only on a temporary basis while her new longer hair is readied.

“She’ll have a new hairdo tomorrow because we’re taking out [her hair extensions] and we’re not putting them back in until Thursday," Gibson dished recently.

“We’re actually doing three different shades, a caramel, a beige blond and a bit of a lighter blonde ... The extensions will last the whole time she’s on the show.”

What do you think? Good move? What hairstyle should she wear on DWTS? Take a look at some recent Kate Gosselin pictures and vote in our survey below ...

How do you know when you've made it big? It's not when you appear on The Tonight Show or get quasi engaged to the most famous face on America's most popular TV show.

Instead, it's when you're included on a THG Fashion Face-Off.

With that in mind, congratulations are in order for Mezhgan Hussainy. Simon Cowell's girlfriend is a true A-lister now!

The make-up artist donned the gown below at Elton John's Oscar Viewing Party this past weekend. Meanwhile, Cougar Town star Courteney Cox Arquette wore it back in January. Compare and contrast:

Mezghan vs. Court

Who looks better in this dress?

It's been awhile, but Star, In Touch, OK! and their ilk decided to give Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie the week off as the subject of myriad ridiculous tabloid covers.

Taking Brangelina's place in the first of the aforementioned celebrity gossip rags? A rare TomKat sighting! It's like some editor just remembered that they exist!

We haven't seen a good story about Katie Holmes being trapped in Tom Cruise's evil clutches in forever (well, December), but this one makes up for lost time!

In addition to insinuating that Tom got her pregnant with baby #2 (which he is supposedly willing to give her $75 million for), Star says that Katie Holmes:

  • Is getting "prenatal Scientology lessons (whatever that consists of)
  • Is going through "agonizing" detox (of what, who the frick knows)
  • Is having her "leash tightened" (yes, they just likened her to a dog)
Tighten That Leash

PRISON WITHOUT BARS: For Katie Holmes, there is no escape.

For someone supposedly under intense mind control and chained in Tom Cruise's torture dungeon, Katie seems awfully content, albeit a little frumpy lately.

Katie and Tom first got together in 2005. Suri Cruise is thriving and cute. Everyone seems status quo and happy. Could it be that TomKat isn't that abnormal?

That, or the perks of being married to Tom must be really good.

Following the tragic death of her son, Marie Osmond returned to the Las Vegas stage, alongside brother Donny, last night.

The siblings performed for a sold-out crowd, as Marie dedicated the concert to her late child, saying:

"The way Osmonds survive is we keep singing. That's what we want to do tonight. I know my son would want that and this show is for him."

The crowd stood and cheered Marie throughout the 90-minute event, growing especially supportive when Donny said: "I think we need to give a big round of applause for my sister for even coming on stage."

This performance came just days after Rosebanne Barr actually called Marie out for playing a role in Michael's suicide. The washed-up comedian said Osmond should have chosen her son over her supposedly gay-bashing religion.

Despite this controversy and despite their grief, the Osmonds had fun on stage.

Marie joked about about her brother's dancing skills, to which Donny replied that he won Dancing With the Stars. But he didn't do that in heels, Marie pointed out, as she exceled at on the ABC show.

As one could only expect, it was an emotional night. Marie wiped away tears when finishing the evening's final number, "It Takes Two."

When we last left Bella and Edward, the latter had proposed to his shocked, mortal beloved. The New Moon cliffhanger left viewers in wonderment... unless you've read the book series, that is.

Now, the first trailer for Eclipse has been unveiled, delivering a much-desired first look at what's in store for everyone's favorite supernatural couple.

In the 10-second preview below, Edward warns Bella about the choice she's about to make, while Jacob says he'll always fight for her. It's great stuff.

Eclipse comes out on June 30. But fans can get their Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson fix in many ways until then:

  • New Moon arrives on DVD on March 20.
  • Stewart is starring in the upcoming The Runaways.
  • Pattinson's latest film, Remember Me, hits theaters on Friday.

Rozlyn Papa may like to get down and dirty with producers on The Bachelor, but it doesn't look like she stars in any adult films, professional or amateur.

The alleged Rozlyn Papa sex tape that went live yesterday  may look like her, but the blonde shown "is clearly not her," her rep, Stacie Vanchieri, says.

"I've seen the tape," she continues. "Anyone who has met her once would know it's not her. The woman has a different body, hands, face, everything."

Anyone who has had Rozlyn affixed to ... never mind.

Not that anyone on the staff at THG watched it, but the chick looks far more flat chested than the voluptuous, exiled, wannabe Jake Pavelka trophy wife.

Rozlyn Papa can be called many things. A sex tape star? Not one of them.

"The woman looks directly into the camera; it's definitely not Rozlyn," Vanchieri adds. "The tape looks like it was done as porn to be sold, not a private moment captured on tape ... It so clearly seems someone is trying to ruin her."

Ridiculous as it sounds that somebody would try to "ruin" Rozlyn Freaking Papa of all people, someone is at least trying to cash in on her name. It's unlikely the site posting the alleged tape of her, pornhub.com, made an honest mistake.

After all, Papa's lawyer claims he has ID'd the clip as a scene from the 2004 classic Pole Position: Lex POV, directed by renowned star Lexington Steele.

We don't know what's funnier:

  • That a movie is called Pole Position
  • That someone tried to pass off a clip as Rozlyn Papa
  • That her lawyer billed $250 an hour to research porn

One of the best young singers on the planet celebrates a birthday on this 10th day of March. No, not Miley Cyrus. No, not Justin Bieber (that was last week).

We're talking about Carrie Underwood, American Idol winner turned American country sensation and universal cutie. She's 27 today. Happy birthday, Carrie!

On top of being a terrific talent with 10 million-plus record sales to her name, the product of Checotah, Oklahoma, is smart, sexy and even down to earth.

She and Olivia Wilde make quite the March 10 birthday combo ...

Simply the Very Best
