Contamination, Power, And Truth: Lessons From Charlie Sheen

If you haven't heard by now, one day after announcing Charlie Sheen would return to filming, CBS turned around and stopped production on its Monday night hit, Two and a Half Men.

Reportedly, this hiatus will last until the end of the season, at least, and it seems the final straw (because, there were plenty of reasons up until this point to just flip the off switch for now) was Sheen's most recent (at...

Psych Central Looks At The 2011 Oscar Nominations

In light of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards Ceremony tonight, I thought it'd be fun to go through some of the Oscar nominees who've been mentioned here at Celebrity Psychings or elsewhere within the Psych Central family of blogs.

This isn't an endorsement of any sort (of course I have my picks to win, but this isn't that kind of blog) just a look back at previous goings-on to keep you busy while you wait...

POLL: What Do You Think Of In-Home Rehab Programs?

the subject of celebrities and rehab...

Apparently, Charlie Sheen is completing an in-home rehab.

As in, a rehab program in your home.

If you're feeling a little clueless right now, don't worry: You're not alone.

According to TMZ, he's already passed multiple drug tests since starting the in-home rehab treatment and E! Online reports Sheen claims he's ready to get back to work filming Two and a Half Men.

Update: Billy Joel Reacts To Elton John’s “Tough Love”

Twice.

After Elton John publicly discussed his concern for friend and tour mate Billy Joel (and John held nothing back, calling Joel's rehab attempts "rehab lite" and hashing through the various things his addictions might be causing such as tour cancellations, illnesses, and lack of song writing) Joel released a statement letting the world know he's not as upset with John as everyone suspected he would be.

In fact, he's simply chalking up John's comments , normal...

Grammys Shammys: Eminem Is On Fire

D'y'all hear?

Eminem is headlining the 2011 Bonnaroo lineup.

He's also rumored to be at Lollapalooza 2011, though the official Lollapalooza lineup for the festival's 20th Anniversary won't be released until April.

I'm excited about this for two reasons: One, I think I might do 'roo this year, and I'd like to see Eminem. Two, it's just one more reason why the results of last Sunday's Grammy Awards shouldn't be too disappointing.

If you didn't watch the Grammys last Sunday, or...

It Might Be A Rumor, But: Katy Perry Seeks Marriage Counseling


It might be a rumor, but I hear Katy Perry and Russell Brand could be headed for marriage counseling.

Unlike the dissolving marriage of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, there's not yet any concrete evidence to make this anything more than a rumor.

OK! Magazine thinks certain recent tweets of Perry's might contradict the rumor. Also, Perry gave the world a few glimpses of her wedding videos last night during her Grammys performance, which...
