"Obviously, for me and for [Matilda], there's a hole in our life. Of course the natural inclination is to want to fill it and make it disappear, but what I've come to recently is that it's impossible. Nothing will fit in that hole because what we want back we can't get, which is this one person. I'm not going to rush anything and scamper around like a mad person and make myself crazy. I'm trying to be respectful of the absence. I'm not trying to fill it up. It is what it is."
-- Michelle Williams, on dealing with the death of Heath Ledger, the father of her daughter Matilda.

Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Holly Madison thinks he is making a mistake by marrying Crystal Harris.
The 84-year-old Playboy founder proposed to the 24-year-old Playmate on Christmas Eve but glamour model and reality TV star Madison - who split from Hugh in 2008 because he did not want to get married - thinks he will regret his "hasty decision."
"I'd like to see Hef settle down. I just want it to be with the right person, and I feel like he's making a hasty decision. I'm not sure Crystal is the best thing for him. Crystal hasn't been around very long -- she's a mysterious character. No one knows much about her. Plus, she's very young, probably too young to settle down."
Holly, 31, also revealed she is worried aspiring singer Crystal is using Hugh to start her career and fears he could end up losing everything in an expensive divorce: "I've seen a lot of girls try to date Hef, and some have ulterior motives. I don't think it would be a bad idea for him to get to know her a little better. I think it's possible Crystal could break Hef's heart. They could end up divorcing, and she could take half his money. I'm not jealous that he'd marry someone else. I just don't want it to be a girl who's using him to start her career. Basically, I think he could do better than Crystal."
Chilling until the next episode of Glee is now much, much easier -- and we’ve got Heather Morris to thank.

Naya Rivera, Matthew Morrison, Cory Monteith and Harry Shum, Jr. helped out, lending their smooth dance moves to this fantastic all-female rap led by Heather Morris. In the opening scene, Modern Family's Sofia Vergara reminds us that she's not just hot, but hilarious -- all while wearing a Sue Sylvester-style tracksuit.

John Travolta and Kelly Preston's baby has brought a "renewed spirit and purpose" to their lives.
The couple - whose 16-year-old son Jett tragically passed away two years ago when he suffered a seizure while on a family holiday in the Bahamas - explained the birth of Benjamin in November has given them the opportunity of a "new beginning."
"It's been uplifting. Especially when he smiles at me and seems contented in my arms. He's given the house and renewed spirit and purpose. He's brought us a new beginning and his presence has brought joy to all the people who have wanted the best for us."
However, the couple - who also have a 10-year-old daughter Ella Bleu - admitted they feel "blessed" to have finally had another child after trying for three years to conceive. "We tried for three years and feel blessed then it finally happened. It's one of the most fulfilling things a person can experience in life and I have had the joy of experiencing it with three amazing children. Being a mother makes me the happiest," Kelly, 48, said.
Edward Furlong was arrested yesterday morning after allegedly violating a court order to stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife.
The Green Hornet actor - who is the subject of a three-year restraining order forbidding him from going near Rachael Bella at her home, place of work and vehicle - was taken into police custody after turning up to court for a progress report where it was found that, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, Edward breached the order last month by coming within 50 yards of Rachael. The 33-year-old star - who has a four-year-old son, Ethan, with Rachael - was then sent to jail, before being released after posting his $75,000 bail.
A probation violation hearing has now been set for Valentine's Day. The restraining order came after Rachael - who filed for divorce from Edward in July 2009 after three years of marriage - told the court in a previous hearing the actor repeatedly drives past her house, once threatened to kill himself and refused to take a drug test when she demanded he take one during their custody dispute.
Edward - who shot to fame at13 - has a history of alcohol and substance abuse problems and has had several stints in rehab. He was arrested twice in 2001, for driving without a license and driving under the influence (DUI) and again in 2004 when he tried to free lobsters from a restaurant in Kentucky, where he was filming Jimmy and Judy.
His legal defense seemed a little shaky from the word go.
Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician who cared for pop star Michael Jackson during the singer’s final days, has been ordered to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter. Murray claimed that Jackson injected himself with a lethal dose of Propofol, but the judge has ruled that Murray's case will continue.
Meanwhile, Murray has been stripped of his medical license. Members of the Jackson family (Katherine, Janet, La Toya, Jackie, Jermaine and Marlon) were present during last week’s hearing, which ended in the current ruling. “I’m happy so far,” said La Toya of the events.
Testimony in the hearing took six days, where more than 20 witnesses were heard for the prosecution. No witnesses were called for the defense during the hearing.
