PEOPLE reports that Bret Michaels continues to be hospitalized and is under “intense observation.”
A rep tells PEOPLE “There are several incorrect reports on Bret’s condition. Bret remains in critical condition … Further tests are being ran and information will be updated in the coming days.”
Michaels recently had an emergency appendectomy after feeling ill before a show. He later blogged about his health.
“This was a wake-up call to be a little bit more diligent on keeping control of my health,” he told fans. “I want to still have a great time, but … I need to find something healthier to do on my day off then going out and finding a club to go hang out at. It’s part of finding balance in my life.”
A spokesperson for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor tells TMZ “The proper steps have been taken and the kids are permitted for ‘Kate Plus 8.’”
However no paperwork has been submitted for the kids to appear on “Twist of Kate,” Gosselin’s spinoff. Good thing for the kids because you don’t want to whore yourself out too much like their parents.
Joni Mitchell emerged out of nowhere to hate on some of her counterparts, according to PerezHilton.
The 66-year-old legendary folk queen, who has been keeping to herself lately, had some not very nice things to say about Bob Dylan Madonna and others. What could someone have to say about those two? Well, Ms. Mitchell did, and here’s what she said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times:
“Bob is not authentic at all. He’s a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception. We are like night and day, he and I.”
She may have been referring to the controversy in 2006 over Dylan’s album Modern Times. Critics believed his lyrics borrowed too much from poet Henry Timrod, and Dylan made no acknowledgement in his album’s sleeve notes.
Mitchell also criticized Madonna’s cultural influence.
“Americans have decided to be stupid and shallow since 1980. Madonna is like Nero; she marks the turning point,” she said.
She didn’t stop there – in her interview she also attacked Grace Slick and Janis Joplin, saying they were “[sleeping with] their whole bands and falling down drunk.”
She could however manage to say one nice thing, she called Jimi Hendrix “the sweetest guy.”
How sweet, Joni.

What started as a headache for rocker Bret Michaels turned into something much more serious, PEOPLE reports.
Michaels was experiencing an excruciating headache Thursday night before he was rushed to an undisclosed hospital. According to a source close to the situation, it was there that doctors discovered he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage – bleeding at the base of his brain stem.
The 47-year-old singer is currently in critical condition.
“After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation,” the source says.
His reps confirm that the information is accurate and said, “We will have no additional information until further testing is done.”
Earlier this month Michaels was rushed into a San Antonio, Texas hospital for an emergency appendectomy. There is no word whether this hospital visit is related to his recent appendectomy or his diabetes.
After his appendectomy, the Poison front man remained in the hospital under his doctors’ care, before being transferred to a rehab facility specializing in diabetic patients.
He remained in good spirits while he was recovering and updated fans on his progress. He was also still in the running to win this season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.
The Pennsylvania native wrote a note to his fans about the pain he experienced.
“They told me that if I had gone on stage like I wanted to, [my appendix] likely would have ruptured and I could have died. There is just no way around the fact that getting your appendix out HURTS. I have a pretty good threshold for pain, but this one hurts.”
After domestic assaults, rehab, legal issues and negative headlines, the two have decided to call it quits.
“Charlie has returned to old habits,” a source close to the Mueller family said, “Brooke has moved out of their family home. Brooke and Charlie still talk, but they don’t see each other.”
There have been reports that the 44-year-old ex-Two and a Half Men star moved back into his house with an escort, which made actress and real estate agent, Mueller obviously leave, is “totally false,” says the insider.
“Charlie is still in rehab,” the source explains. “He isn’t living at home right now.”
There was no comment from Mueller’s attorney on the split, however, Stan Rosenfield, Sheen’s publicist had another story. He was tight-lipped but admitted that the information was “not true” but did not elaborate.
So with that unclear, so is the fate of the hit show Two and a Half Men, since Sheen announced he was leaving the show in February.
Motherhood has been only good to Christina Aguilera – she says it has made her “better than ever,” reports PEOPLE.
With the release of Bionic, her fourth studio album in June, the songstress is ready to show the world the new Christina.
“I’m more confident and comfortable in my own skin,” she said Tuesday in an interview with Q100’s Bert Show in Atlanta.
Not only is she comfortable and happy as a mother, it has made her even more sexual than she already is.
“I think [I’m] even a more sexual Christina … it’s just something that’s happening inside of me at this point in my life.”
E! Online reports the model was partying at a Beverley Hills hot spot where she was spotted hustling pro athletes. Unfortunately nobody was buying.
“Jaimee made a beeline for a table full of [Anaheim] Ducks and [L.A.] Kings NHL hockey players,” an eyewitness tells E! Online. “She walked up, and the guys were just like, ‘Can we help you?’ She said, ‘I’m a model. My name is Jaimee.’ ”
She later explained that she appeared in Maxim as a model, but the guys were not interested.
Grubbs apparently then tried to blend in with the puck-slinging posse. “She suddenly just started making herself a drink,” our spy says. ”They asked her to leave.”
Afterwards one of the guys recognized her and was overheard saying “Oh, s–t, I think that was the Tiger girl. I don’t want to be associated with that.”
E! Online was able to find a spy on set of the show who offered some comments about working with Kate Gosselin.
“Everyone couldn’t be more relieved,” fesses one of our sources who works on the hit show. “We all had to walk on eggshells around [Kate]. At least we don’t have to worry about where our eyes can or can’t drift off to now.”
“Kate just thought that everyone was out to get her,” adds E! Online’s dancing spy. “That’s why she had all of those crazy rules, like how she was to be approached.”
“[The staff] felt bad for the bad press she got, but sometimes it was deserved! She was not an easy person to work with.”
So here is another person who spent a lot of time with Kate saying she is a bitch. This then begs the question, “Is Jon Gosselin right?” Maybe he was driven into insanity by his obnoxious and demanding wife? Click here for our view on that subject.
