First Stop News

Mariah Carey... in labor?

With the world so busy over the royal wedding, it almost went unnoticed that Mariah Carey might be in labor! Nick Cannon reportedly fled from a speech at the Worldwide Radio Summit, and rushed to the hospital to meet Mariah.

No word on what's going on, yet, but we hope that everything goes well for the couple !

Katy Perry is getting down !

Today, Rebecca Black Katy Perry performed the viral song, Friday in concert!

Perry took to the stage, earlier tonight to sing a lovely ac-ac-acoustic cover of the song! However, we have to admit, it kind of looses it's touch when it's not infested with autotune.

White iPhone 4 Sold Out in Hong Kong and Beijing !

The highly anticipated white version of the iPhone 4 was released yesterday, in 27 different countries. Reports in Asia are stating that it has sold out in both Hong Kong and Beijing.

And yes, Perez. It is "white hot".

Dreamworks Movie Artist Charged with Neighbour's Dog beating

Young Song, a visual effects artist for Dreamworks who has worked on films including Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar 2, Shark Tale, and Shrek is facing more than four years in prison, after being accused of beating his neighbour's puppy to death, with a hammer. Song allegedly entered his neighbour's backyard last week and shot their 16-month-old German sheperd with a pellet gun, before eventually beating it to death with a hammer.

According to the owner of the puppy, the act was caught on surveillance camera.

Song pled 'not guilty' today to one felony count of animal cruetly and one misdemeanor petty theft of a dog, after he reportedly dragged the mutilated corpse from his neighbour's yard.

Song was arrested yesterday, and is still in custody. Bail is currently set at $40,000 US. His next court appearance is scheduled for May 26th.

Empire Carpet Guy LIVES ON !

Elmer Lynn Hauldren is immortal.

Okay, so maybe not, but if you don't know who Hauldren is, he's the spokesman from the Empire Carpet. Unfortunately, he passed away on Wednesday at the age of 89, but a rep for the company says they have no plans whatsoever to replace the famous jingle.

Incase you have no idea what we're talking about: here's the lyrics of the famous less-than-ten-seconds jingle:

One eight hundred, five eight eight, two three hundred, EMPIRE!

Still don't get it? That's what YouTube's for.

R.I.P. Elmer Lynn Hauldren

Michael Jackson... and so on.

Today, First Stop is asking, with all due respect, why people are still talking about Michael Jackson's cause of death? Jackson was a physical and mental mess before he died ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned Murray's lawyers want the tapes to show Jackson was slow, lethargic and weak in the days prior to his death.  Although some of the video shows an alert MJ, other portions, we're told, clearly show something is wrong with the singer.

Murray's lawyers want to show jurors in the manslaughter case ... Michael was ill or even dying before the fateful morning ... so it wasn't really the June 25 Propofol injections that killed MJ.


Diddy cancels upcoming concerts

Diddy, originally Sean Combs, than Puff Daddy, than P. Diddy, and now just Diddy has stated that the reason for cancelling five upcoming shows was not for low ticket sales. It was a "logistic" issue. Whatever that means.

Amidst reports that ticket sales were in the dumps, a rep for Dirty Money tells TMZ, "A few dates for the 'Coming Home' tour in Florida and Missouri were canceled due to production and technical logistics which made it impossible for Diddy Dirty Money to perform the best show for their fans."

The rep adds, "The remaining shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Phoenix are scheduled as planned and will mark the ending to a widely acclaimed tour."

The rep wouldn't say anything more specific about the "logistics" issues ... which could be about a million different things ... from the stage ... to the lights ... to the temperature of the champagne fridge in Diddy's dressing room.


One and a Half Men?

Although Charlie Sheen has said he wants to return to his CBS show, Two and a Half Men it looks as if Chuck Lorre, the creator of the series is going to pass that offer.

According to reports, Lorre and some of the other crew of the show are planning a revamp of the show, including a fresh face to replace Sheen, however no auditions have been done, as of yet.

Also, an executive producer for Warner Bros., the show's studio has said one thing's for sure: "We are not bringing the show back with Charlie."

"At the end of the day, no one cares about your feeble show without me," stated Sheen, "Shame on you. Not even a phone call to the man that put you on the map. The man that put 500 million dollars in your pockets… I busted my ass for 8 years to support your vision."

Men has not yet been confirmed to come back for an eighth season this Fall, but New York Times is reporting that CBS is set to announce it's Fall lineup on May 18th. Looks like things arent's so Sheeny, for Sheen.

Chuck Lorre targets Vanity Card to Charlie Sheen !?

Chuck Lorre, the creator of The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men is taking a vicious shot an actor! But here's the catch; it's not Charlie Sheen. Maybe.

After Thursday's episode of The Big Bang Theory, Lorre's signature vanity card at the end of the episode took a stab at a smoking monkey that had appeared in the episode, but to us, it may just actually be a stab at Sheen.

At all times, every effort was made to make the monkey feel happy and safe...during the week of production, the monkey increasingly erratic, to the point that he refused to come out of his trailer. It wasn't until after production that we learned why. The monkey is a heroin addict. Yes, hard as it may be to believe, the monkey has a monkey on his back.

It has also been reported that Lorre is planning a reboot of Men, without Sheen.

So, what do you think? Was the vanity card just monkey business, or was it aimed at Charlie?

OppOp is half-sorry :(

Everyone knows that Oprah Winfrey now has her own TV network, The Oprah Winfrey Network. Real creative name, huh?

Well, ever sense ABC's almost-ancient soap operas, All My Children and One Life to Live were cancelled last week, fans of the shows have been trolling trying to get OppOp to pick up the show on her network. Unfortunately, OpOpp says that she won't can't pick up the shows, because they were cancelled due to low ratings, and so there's nothing she can do.

According to OpOpp, "all good things come to an end". She also blabbed on about "institutions" and how soap operas "changed the face of daytime televsion". We just kind of skimmed through her 2 minute and 1 second response video.

Too bad, sense OppOp's network sucks, in the first place.

Antoine Dodson arrested for marijuana possession !

Last night at about 2:30 AM, Antoine Dodson was caught by the police due to marijuana possession. He was booked on a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana and released a short time after.

Dodson found worldwide attention, last summer when he appeared on his city's news channel, talking about his sister being almost-raped, saying "Y'all better hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husband." Perhaps he should really be saying "Hide your pot!"

iPhone 5 on the way !

Just like it's been sense the iPhone 2, everyone is so shocked that a new iPhone will be coming out in September. According to the latest reports, the iPhone 5 will be released this September.

The question is; now that TWO cameras have been added, what will the new features be?

No details have been announced yet, but one would expect the new installment would likely have a faster processor.

So, will you be putting those iPhone 4s up on eBay to make room for #5?

Now, courtesy of, here are the top 20 things wanted on the new iPhone:

Jim Carrey to replace Steve Carell ?

The Office star, Steve Carell announced last year that the seventh season of the show would be his final season, despite this, the peacock-network renewed the show for an eighth season. Carell plays the goofy Michael in the show, and his final episode, entitled Goodbye, Michael is set to debut on April 28th.

Weird how NBC decided to let Carell leave before the season was even finished, huh?

Either way, the hour-long season finale of the show is set to air May 19, and will include many guest stars, including Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett, James Spader, Ray Romano and Catherine Tate, who will all play candidates being interviewed for Michael's position, and we have just learned that Jim Carrey will also be a guest star in the season finale.

What do you think? Would you watch the show if Carrey took over for Carell, or is the peacock network getting on your last feather?

Nicki Minaj Fragrance ?

Nicki Minaj has confirmed that she will in fact be coming out with her very own fragrance. She recently told Allure that she hopes to do a "summer-y" but "va-va-voom" fragrance, sometime this year. Minaj has also said that the fragrance will be "sexy but confident".

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D New Details!

Last year, we learned that a new Leatherface installment was underway, and six months later we've learned a few new details on Leatherface 3D.

John Luessenhop, director of Takers is being asked to direct the film, a draft of the screenplay has been turned in by Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus, and Stephen Susco and Kristin Elms has been hired to check and double check the script.

So, are you excited to see Massacre come back for it's first revival of the decade, or do you think that the last film of the franchise was bad enough?

Selena Gomez joins Biebs on Asian Tour !

Sources have revealed that Disney darling, Selena Gomez has joined her boyfriend, Justin Bieber on tour in Asia, for a little while. "They've been spending the past few days together," the source reveals !

Good job! Making it all work.

Jason Biggs to voice Ninja Turtles project!

Last month, it was confirmed that a new Teenage Mutan Ninja Turtles revival animated series was on it's way, but we have just learned that Leonardo, the leader of the pack will be voiced by none other than Jason Biggs! The new series is set to start production next year.

Are you excited to see the new show?

Will Susan Lucci go to Desperate Housewives?

Earlier this week, ABC announced that their 41-year-old hit soap opera, All My Children will be sent to the chopping board this September, and now the cast of AMC are scrambling to find new job offers. Susan Lucci, who plays Erica Kane in the Emmy-award winning show is said to be in talks with the same network to join the 6-year old dramedy, Desperate Housewives.

According to sources, Lucci is on a contract to take part in another gig for the network, and Lucci could divide her time equally between production of Desperate which starts filming in July, and Children which finishes filming in August. However, according to a Lucci rep, Susan will "not be filming Desperate Housewives in July." However, she could be a midseason addition.

What do you think? Should Lucci head over to Wisteria Lane, or should she find another offer?
