Larry Hagman wins CitiGroup payday; Bristol Palin's video debut
Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon...
1. Larry Hagman's CitiGroup payday: Larry Hagman, who those of us born before 1975 may remember as the diabolical J.R. Ewing from TV's "Dallas," today won a massive payday from Citigroup Inc. In 2009, Hagman accused the company of "a breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract, fraud by misrepresentation and omission, failure to supervise and violation of federal and state law." A federal panel agreed and awarded the actor "$10 million in punitive damages that Citi must pay to charities selected by Hagman, $1.1 million in compensatory damages and nearly $440,000 in legal fees," according to Reuters.

2. Bristol Palin's video debut: In addition to clogging her way around a ballroom on "Dancing With the Stars," Bristol Palin -- daughter of erstwhile Alaska governor and GOP spitfire Sarah Palin -- lent herself to Alaskan band Static Cycle. In the video, Palin sports a matronly fur coat and hat and "iced" eyelashes and brows. "I think my role is like a mother nature role," said Palin in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Which is funny since Palin's own mother has limited her exposure to nature to shooting wolves from a helicopter. Just last week, Bristol's ex, Levi Johnston, made his own debut in the video for Brittani Senser's "After Love." [ET]
3. Juliette Lewis hospitalized: The "Conviction" co-star was hospitalized Wednesday night after her car was "broadsided" by a driver in Burbank, Calif. According to TMZ.com, Lewis's car was totaled. An investigation is underway, but the hit-and-run driver is still at large. [TMZ]
