In August of 2007, Owen Wilson slit his wrists in an alleged suicide attempt supposedly because he was distraught over his breakup with Kate Hudson. He seems to have bounced back and recovered nicely. And according to a jewelry company called Melrose Jewelers, he has Rolex Watches to thank for that. Melrose Jewelers has a "Rolex blog" on its website (for real) and in an entry posted a few weeks ago, they discuss the ways in which the Rolex brand lifted Owen out of the depths of his suicidal despair. It all sounds like a bad joke, but it's not. Check out some excerpts from this unbelievable blog entry. "After a frightening suicide attempt in 2007, Rolex watches and benefits appeared to play an essential role in actor Owen Wilson's recovery. It was a dark period in Wilson's life, and Rolex played a key role in helping Owen regain his bearings and his success. After returning home from the hospital, Owen was captured by a photographer walking on the beach, wearing his Rolex Submariner. Later, he was seen riding his mountain bike in Santa Monica with the Rolex Submariner on his wrist. Obviously, the quality of a Rolex watch helped Owen realize and appreciate the quality of his own life. Wearing a Rolex Submariner and attending Rolex Benefits helped Owen Wilson realize his life was valuable and worth living. Once again, the precision and quality of a Rolex proves to be a lifesaver in more ways than one." Wow. That's all legit, check it out here!
Robert Pattinson from "Twilight" recently said, "Up until I was 12, my sisters used to dress me up as a girl and introduce me as Claudia. Twelve was a real turning point for me, as I moved to a mixed school, and then I became cool and discovered hair gel." Despite being the idol of millions of teen girls, Pattinson's love life isn't as exciting as you might think. He says, "If somebody asks me out on a date, I go out with them. But I never get asked." I suppose dressing like a girl didn't help.
Jim Jones was apparently charged with misdemeanor assault yesterday morning after he met with police in New York regarding an incident that went down at a Louis Vuitton store in Manhattan on Christmas Eve. According to MTV News, police say they believe Jim punched and kicked someone from Ne-Yo's entourage. That man's name hasn't been released but some sources claim it was a dude named "Vaughn", who's also an associate of Jay-Z. No further details on the fight have been released. So there's no word if Ne-Yo was also in the store or how or why the argument escalated in the store. Jim's lawyer confirmed that Jim had been charged in the case. Jim was released without bail and a court date has been set for February 4th. MTV managed to get in touch with Jim, but he declined to elaborate on the incident. He did insinuate that, at least in his mind, the whole thing was overblown. He said, "I don't know what this is for. All I know is I was shopping. I don't know what happened. They say it was an incident at the store, but I don't know." He added, "Sometimes the notoriety works in your favor, but I shouldn't be here at this point. As long as no one is physically doing something to you or being that much of an aggressor, sometimes you can let these things go. My last few situations, it seems like I've ended up in jail and people have used that as a way to put civil suits on me. That's the new wave of getting money. They say snitching is big business."
Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell are the proud parents of twin girls with annoying celebrity baby names. Rebecca gave birth last Sunday to Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip. The "Dolly" comes from Dolly Parton, because Rebecca is a big fan. Charlie was named after Jerry's brother, former "Bachelor" star Charlie O'Connell. And yes, Charlie Tamara Tulip is a girl.
