Rumor Control: Viral
Stories about the stars just keep
coming, so it's a good thing we've got them under control
- let's get straight to getting the facts straight:
Jennifer Garner will be back in action
when "Alias" returns to ABC Wednesday night,
but what about reports that the brunette bombshell is
out of commission in real life? They're right on the
money, unfortunately. Jen and boyfriend Ben
Affleck paid a visit to the UCLA Medical Center
Monday, and "Extra" has confirmed that Jennifer
is ill with a viral infection. The "Daredevil"
duo spent the holidays in West Virginia with Jen's family.
As for the upcoming publicity for her new film, "Elektra,"
Jen is taking it day by day, according to her publicist.
Meanwhile, supermodel Heidi Klum and
super singer Seal have been a hot item
for months, but are they headed for the altar? It's
a fact, Jack. According to the New York Daily News,
the couple spent the New Year south of the border where
the German beauty was spotted wearing a canary diamond
ring. Seal has already taken over the role of daddy
to Heidi's young daughter and even dedicated his new
greatest hits CD to young Leni.
Britney Spears has lived life in the
Hollywood fast lane, so is she really writing a new
musical about Tinseltown? True: according to her website,
Mrs. Federline has just finished co-directing her latest
video and is already working on the tongue-in-cheek
project titled "Hollywood," which she hopes
to eventually direct.
Fellow songstress Madonna spent the
holidays with her family in England, and now people
are saying the original pop diva took time out to renew
her vows -- but don't you believe it. Reps say that
reports Madonna received a $190,000 dollar ring during
a Kabbalah-based ceremony are untrue
And finally, Liza Minnelli's bedroom
fall has created a wave of support for the star, but
has estranged hubby David Gest really
taken pity and decided to drop his $10 million assault
complaint against her? Not a chance. Gest says, "She
took basically a year-and-a-half of my life away, and
I didn't know if I would ever be able to stand up for
a few years."
