Gary Coleman in critical condition; Tom Cruise NOT dead

By Liz Kelly and Jen Chaney

Friday

Gary Coleman remains in critical condition in a Utah hospital. No official cause released, but Coleman's brother-in-law told TMZ Coleman injured his head in a fall. In February, Coleman suffered a seizure on the set of TV's "Insider" and was also hospitalized in January for unspecified reasons.

Wow, Justin Bieber really does need a keeper. Kid can't even walk without someone guiding him.

Damn, some hoaxes are just so hurtful. To those who are hoaxed.

Gol dang it, this sure proves that that Bieber fella needs to get hisself a haitcut.

Does a purse theif steal purses like a purse thief, or does he just transpose the contents while mixing in drugs?

HAIRCUT.

Gary Coleman


In Uma Thurman's defence, she *was* engaged to a banker, so her sense of smell for dubious financial transactions would have been dulled by the constant stench of Arpad's work.


LiLo's going to make that alcometer go to 11.


"Sandra Bullock to receive Generation Award at MTV Movie awards." And Jesse the Degeneration Awards everywhere else.


How we know Joaquin Phoenix's rap career is "for real": he lost 54 pounds for a movie role.


JLo, MarcAntho, uh-oh.


JuBie needs to just keep wearing his coke-bottle glasses and he'll start avoiding obstacles.


Daniel Craig, making out with a man in a parking lot? Geez. Whatever happened to taking the subway?


Nick Jonas in "Les Miserables," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" redux, camping out for 24 hours to see "Sex and the City 2": and yet people think that Piero Manzini, the artist who sold his own canned feces, is still somehow outrageous.

Poor Gary Coleman. A head injury is the last thing he needs. Considering.

Twitter is apparently far more dangerous than we thought.

The key statement in the Lilo article is "stood at the center of attention." Apparently we who follow her intently, and then complain because she is in the news so much, are our own worst enemies.

Re Wack-een, like we should believe Diddy.

Looks like Bieber would be perfect in one of those Windex commercials.

Guess we should not have expected Gene Simmons to get by on his tongue forever.

Liz, hope that rumor doesn't interfere with any of your Daniel Craig fantasies.

Those of us who lament the cleavage shortage caused by the death of GW will just have to wait for another Lilo court appearance. Those of us who watch know that death isn't final so the image of JLH will continue to haunt me.

Who says canadians don't know how to use their heads?

Could Bret Michaels be on deck as Simon Cowell's "Idol" replacement?...

Hasn't poor Bret suffered enough recently?

Fergie plans to apologize for pay-for-play scandal on "The Oprah Show" next week.

Hope she isn't expecting Oprah to pay her.


Lindsay Lohan and new alcohol-monitoring bracelet hit the clubs.

Does it take a licking and keep on ticking?


How long before, "A Justin Bieber walks into a bar..."?


jaybbub, can you send some Friday love Gary Coleman's way? Poor guy's had health problems all his life, and it seems to be just getting worse.

For those of you peons who don't have a Variety subscription, here's the info on James McAvoy.

Friday love to Gary Coleman. Dude has had a screwed-up life - hope he recovers fully from whatever this latest problem is!

Also - love to Jesse James's children. We're really sorry your dad is a turd and we realize it's not your fault.

kudos as always to byoolin for succinctly hitting the nail on the head with "JLo, MarcAntho, uh-oh"

I just wanted to report that the thought of Daniel Craig making out with another man has increased the fantasies available to me exponentially.

Just saying...

"Justin Bieber almost second crash" -- I'm starting a new Facebook group dedicated to providing Wonderday with those daisies you put on sliding glass doors.

"Fergie plans to apologize for pay-for-play scandal on 'The Oprah Show' next week" -- And everyone in the audience gets a copy of her latest children's book. Along with an invoice.

"Jesse James regularly uses the 'N word,' claims chatty former stepmom" -- Neurasthenia?

"Nick Jonas set to appear in London production of 'Les Miserables.'" -- My response to that? There's a grief that can't be spoken.

"Daniel Craig reportedly spotted making out with a man in the parking lot of an L.A. club" -- Don't panic, it's just a scene from his new Bond movie, "The Man With the Golden Lips." (Yeah, it's lame, but it was either that or "Thunderball.")

SECOND.

Thunderball ... ROFL!!!

Note to JLo: the last time Skeletor renewed his vows, he left that wife shortly thereafter for ... you.

I thought wearing an alcohol-monitoring bracelet while partying was the new black, but it appears to be getting pregnant by your "fiance" (hmm, which came first ... ). I always thought Alicia Keys was a smart cookie, but apparently not. Not only does he already have 2 kids and wasn't married to either of those baby mamas, but the kids' names are -- get ready for it -- Kasseem Jr. and Prince Nasir. ?!? I guess it could be worse -- it could be Prince Kasseem and Prince Kasseem II, a la Michael Jackson's oh-so-creatively-named offspring.

The appeal of either of these guys (Skeletor or Swizz) is a real head-scratcher. Tiny and unattractive, yet they have no trouble attracting physically beautiful women. Huh?

Tom Cruise dead? Why, did he speak out against $cientolocult?

My first thoughts reading today's Morning Mix title was "damn and DAMN!".

Time for a haircut Bieber. Mom needs a lock for the babybook.

------------------------------------------

Byoo', I thought that was Manzini's artistic take on poutine.

Having had to deal recently with a situation in which a close relative was in circumstances similar to those Gary Coleman's, I can tell you that it's not fun. Watching someone on a ventilator go through brain death is ....well....it's very sad.

NPR reported at 3 PM that Gary Coleman died.

A major reason I've been particularly nasty and misanthropic lately.....

RIP Gary Coleman. The final paragraph from the Post's Obit is very telling....and sad.

Gary Coleman has passed.

I actually found out first from a lawyer's listserv and a football blog. C'mon ladies, falling down on the job.

I never watched Diff'rent Strokes, but the whole Gary Coleman saga is just plain sad. May he rest in peace ... and find the peace in the hereafter he didn't find in life.
