Rumor Control: Old Tricks
January 27, 2005
You've heard the talk, now it's time to hear the truth.
We've got the answers that keep today's hottest rumors
Bill Clinton is back on the front pages
in a surprising new photo that shows the recovering
heart patient with a cigar in his mouth. Now friends
are worried and wondering, is Bill back to his
old bad habits?
He is not. "Extra" can confirm that the former
president's cigar was not lit when he golfed during
a visit to Miami for Donald Trump's wedding. According
to his reps, our former commander in chief occasionally
carries an unlit cigar, and is still heeding his doctor's
advice to avoid smoking stogies and eating Big Macs.
Meanwhile, it was "Viva Las Vegas" for "American
Idol," Wednesday night, as the show hit
the strip and things heated up fast between Simon
and Paula -- and also between Randy
and Paula, and now people are asking, is there
really a judge feud?
That would be a no! "Extra" was with Randy Thursday, and he told our Terri Seymour that the hatchet has been buried. "We get all cranky sometimes and the cameras just got it," Randy insisted. "Paula and I made up, off camera."
The countdown has begun for Martha Stewart,
who will walk away from Camp Cupcake in just over five
weeks, but rumor has it that she's been having some
fun behind bars. Is she really taking line-dancing
Yes. According to reports, Stewart has even learned a few steps for Brooks and Dunn's "Boot Scoot Boogie." No word on whether Martha's two-step is part of her debt to society, but with good attendance, she'll receive a certificate at the end of the four-week class.
