Michael and ex-wife Diandra Douglas, leave the court after the sentencing on April 20. Photo by Louis Lanzano/ AP Appearing on Monday's "Today" show, actor Michael Douglas said he thinks his son's five-year sentence for dealing drugs could help him kick the drug habit. "He was going to be dead or somebody was going to kill him," Douglas said. "My son was a drug dealer, and he tried to kill himself for a while, and I can't condone his behavior."

Douglas told Matt Lauer there were a number of reasons Cameron has had problems. Michael, 65, blamed himself, saying he was an absentee father when Cameron was young and Diandra was young and inexperienced. He also said there was a family history of addiction on both sides of the family. In March, a judge sentenced Cameron Douglas to five years for dealing methamphetamine … [Read more...] about Michael Douglas says son’s prison sentence is ‘adequate’
AP photo Large-breasted person of few talents publicly announces her availability for sexual relations; matron offers sons, perhaps in hopes of extending her own tenuous hold on the public imagination. People reports: Kim Kardashian has admitted she'd be "down for some hookups" in New York this fall. Well, how about a trip to New Jersey to hang out with Caroline Manzo's boys? Manzo, 49, the Real Housewives of New Jersey matriarch, thinks it might not be a bad idea. Either of her two sons might be able to sweep Kardashian, 29, off her feet, she says. "[Albie] is only 24, but you never know," Manzo told PEOPLE on Wednesday at a season-finale party in New York for E!'s The Spin Crowd. "Christopher's only 21, so that's stretching it a little bit. They're both good catches in my mind, so either one works." Wonder if Mama also said she hoped her sons would “knock boots” and “shag nasty” but not “get cooties.” Probably not. But … [Read more...] about More Real Housewife news: have my son, Kim
Sylvia Cachay, from her website Here’s a story that seems perfect for Manhattan: money, fashion, Tin Pan Alley, shiftless beau, and . . . murder? A fashion designer was found dead Thursday in an overflowing bathtub in a swank hotel room, and her boyfriend — the son of an Academy Award-winning songwriter — was being questioned by police, a law enforcement official said. Sylvie Cachay, 33, was found in a Soho House room after police received a call from the Manhattan hotel at about 3 a.m., police said. Water had been leaking from a ceiling, and hotel staff went to the floor above, where they found Cachay, dressed in a thin black sweater and underwear, submerged face up in the 6 1/2-foot oval tub. Cachay's boyfriend, Nicholas Brooks, the 24-year-old son of "You Light Up My Life" songwriter Joseph Brooks, was seen leaving the hotel earlier and returned at about 3:30 a.m. to find police there, the law enforcement official said. In an unrelated case, … [Read more...] about Lingerie & swimwear designer found dead; unemployed son of famous songwriter questioned
The crowds in Libya may want to string up Gadaffi and his son, but the latter may be able to pull the ultimate survival card: "hey, I know some celebs, maybe they’ll come over and hang with us. I mean hang out! I mean chill. Forget about the hanging. Anyway, I know Beyonce! Seriously! There’s a video of us on YouTube!" Last year, the Guardian said: Beyonce Knowles gave at a private concert on New Year's Eve for a son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, according to reports, performing five songs at a club on the Caribbean island of St Barts. The event featuring the R & B star seems to have been hosted by Motassim Bilal Gaddafi, known as Hannibal. The rumoured fee for Beyoncé's hour-long warble: $2m. Usher also took the stage, with Jon Bon Jovi, Lindsay Lohan, Russell Simmons and models Miranda Kerr and Victoria Silvstedt in the crowd. Tickets didn't come cheap. According to Portuguese columnist Vivi Mascaro, the 300 attendees paid $12,000 (£7,500) … [Read more...] about Lohan partied with Gadaffi’s son?
We’ll just assume the publicists did not immediately return calls. Charlie Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, was jailed for 16 months on Friday for going on a drug-fueled rampage during a student fees protest in London. Gilmour, 21, had admitted violent disorder. A court heard he had shouted "We're going to break all the laws" during last December's protest. He was seen hanging from a Union Jack flag on the Cenotaph war memorial and leaping on to the bonnet of a Jaguar car which was traveling in a convoy carrying Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. His defense team had disputed an allegation that he also threw a trash can at the car but the Press Association reported that Judge Nicholas Price told Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court in southwest London he was satisfied Gilmour had in fact thrown the bin. Gilmour was also accused of attacking the front window of a clothing store in Oxford Street and making off with the leg of a mannequin.
