There must be something in the proverbial Hollywood water because another actor is being charged with tax evasion. First Wesley Snipes, now Crocodile Dundee Paul Hogan. The tax authorities down under are supposedly looking to the IRS for help in building their case. The Mr. Dundee held an impromptu press conference, ya know, ‘cause we all care so much, where he laughed at the charges and told the Australian government to come and get him. Which sounds all bad and tough but he wasn’t kidding. He needs someone to pay for his plane ticket home...

The latest in the Madonna rumored divorce saga (thanks to
Never one to shy away from controversy, Madonna issued the mother of all denials on Sunday, quashing rumors of an affair with Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez, refuting claims that she converted him to Kabbalah and denying plans to divorce her husband of seven years, Guy Ritchie. "My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study,” Madonna said in a statement to People magazine. A-Rod isn't off the hook either, thanks to a whole bunch of stuff, his wife has filed for divorce. To escape the media circus, A-Rod's wife fled to the home of pal Lenny Kravitz sparking rumors they were an item which Lenny immediately and angrily denied. Isn't this fun?...

Susan Olsen, A.K.A. Cindy Brady nearly vomited on-camera at a recent television interview blaming some friend for getting her “so wasted last night.” She bolted out of the taping before she could show the interviewer just how much she liked him. She’ll be known for playing Cindy Brady but evidently she wants to be remembered for acting like Lindsay Lohan.

STAR Artist John Mayer may have the most amazing sense of humor of any singer I know. At a concert last week he told those there he was so fed up with internet rumors. He said they just tempt him to say things, so throughout the concert he delivered some shocking confessions like he’s afraid of the color green, that he wrote the lyrics to Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone” when he was 9 and when he was 12 he weighed 400 pounds. And my two favorite John Mayer confessions: that he’s always felt he was born a woman and he’s 33% done building a time machine.

STAR Artist Bon Jovi’s "Lost Highway" tour will wrap up in about a week and Jon has no idea what to do next, "I'm not quite sure where to go, is it Greatest Hits Vol. 2, or is it time for a solo record, or is it time to walk away? I don't know what it'll be yet." If they do “walk away”, they’ll have gone out on top. The tour they’re wrapping will have reportedly brought 966,000 people to their concerts.

Supposed insiders are claiming the cast of the hit show Friends wants to get back together…in the movies. Since Sex & the City had such a hugely successful leap to the big screen, Jennifer Anniston, Courtney Cox, and all are ready to bring the laughs and try that leap themselves. If you believe rumors, and who doesn’t, look for the Friends movie in the next year and a half. Thank God, David Schwimmer will work again.

Congratulations to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban – they had their first child together this morning, a healthy 6 pound 7½ ounce baby girl named Sunday Rose.

Everyone loves Brad and Angelina, especially the French. The mayor of the town they’re living in as declared them honorary French citizens.

This hasn’t been confirmed but don’t be surprised if Olympics host and sportscaster, Bob Costas, ends up replacing Tim Russert as host of “Meet the Press."

STAR Artist Coldplay’s new album will spend its second week in the number one spot on the Billboard charts but it’s also set a pretty cool record. In just the two weeks its been out it’s sold more downloads than any album in digital history – over 354,000.
