Lamar Odom reportedly insists he was drunk when he made a topless rap video.
The basketball player - whose four-year marriage to Khloe Kardashian has been rocked by allegations he cheated on her and has been battling an addiction to crack cocaine - has told friends that the clip, which showed him in a Los Angeles bathroom with friend Jamie Sanouthai, slurring his words in a song which referenced being unfaithful and smoking drugs, was shot after he had consumed too much alcohol.
According to TMZ, he also told pals there were no drugs involved and it was just a one-off incident as he is now clean and determined to resurrect his sporting career.
Lamar recently confirmed he is in negotiations to re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers and is believed to have met with head coach Doc Rivers and Clippers GM Gary Sacks earlier this month.The road to Lamar's NBA comeback has not been without struggle. The 14-year veteran, who previously played for the Clippers during the 2012-2013 season, was arrested for DUI (Driving Under the Influence) on August 30 and later pleaded not guilty. At the time of Lamar's arrest, 29-year-old Khloe and the rest of the Kardashian family had been urging him to seek treatment. The couple have since been attending counseling sessions and are "using it as a forum to talk through all of their issues."
TV personality Brooke Burke-Charvet, one of the hosts from Dancing with the Stars, has revealed that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The 41 year-old mother of four took to YouTube (video shown above) to tell to her fans about how she discovered that she has cancer and the upcoming surgery she will undergo to treat it.
Knowing that she'll soon have a large scar across her neck after the surgery, the former model decided to be proactive about let her fans know what's going on with her firsthand: "I don't get to just walk around and pretend like nothing happened or not follow up or not share it, because it's going to be pretty much dead center. I don't want anybody to read about it and get the wrong idea, or think that I'm sick, because I'm not."

Justin Timberlake is "deeply sorry" to anyone who felt offended by a "joke" wedding video for his and Jessica Biel's nuptials. The 31-year-old singer-and-actor has slammed the "distasteful" clip, which appears to mock homeless people, and while he insists the footage was not actually shown at the couple's wedding in Italy last Friday, he says the person responsible, who is thought to be his close friend Justin Huchel, will be made to do "at least 100 hours of community service."
The "unsavory" tape starts by saying, "Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn't make it," and cuts to several homeless people, transsexuals and street musicians wishing them well with apologies for missing the big day.
In an excerpt from an apologetic letter posted on his website, Justin wrote:
We can’t all be future Queens, but we can all look like one thanks to Shala Moradi. She’s the director of design at New York’s Faviana, an evening wear company that started working on the pattern for a replica of the royal wedding dress on the Friday before the wedding. After working all weekend, they came up with a copycat royal wedding gown that would make any would-be princess turn pea-green with envy.

During a recent appearance on Justice with Judge Jeanine (it’s on Fox News), Sarah Palin said that she agrees with Donald Trump and supports his birther investigation. You can hear her comments in the video above.
Trump has publicly attacked President Barack Obama, demanding to see his birth certificate, because evidently he watched a lot of Fox News during the 2008 election. Sarah Palin, whose party lost the election, was quick to take his side. She appreciates “that the Donald wants to spend his resources on something that so interests him and so many Americans.”

Even Glee’s stars have to drive to work -- at least, they do in this hilarious clip from Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die.

Charlie Sheen is recovering quickly from his terrible performance in Detroit in the best possible way: with humor. The actor has released a 7-minute spoof his 20/20 interview, and you can see the whole thing above.
We’ve watched it, and we think this version is better than the original -- which aired last month on ABC. Sheen seems unafraid to laugh at himself in the segment, sporting different T-shirts, over-using his catchphrases, even chain-smoking.
The video should do wonders for his comedy tour, which is going strong despite the Motor City flub.

I pity the fool who missed the end of last week's Saturday Night Live. Those who were watching NBC saw Zach Galifianakis standing on the famous stage with a Mr. T-inspired Mohawk. As he explained, the skit never made it to air -- the show ran out of time. But, at least he got an awesome new ‘do out of the sketch the didn’t.
