Producer Outs Twilight Couple
A producer of the Twilight films has spilled the beans on the relationship between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. According to him, they are indeed a couple. Thought it has long been rumored, both Stewart and Pattinson have gone to great lengths to deny they are having a relationship. They have refrained from public affection and whenever asked have denied the relationship. All it took was one producer with a pair of slippery lips to out them. Wyck Godfrey told Time “The thing I do think about is, Oh my God, I hope they stay together. Because it could be awkward on set in the next movie if they have a huge falling out. It's like, Wow, they have to portray this love story through two more movies. God, I hope they stay together; please stay together. That's what affects my day-to-day.” Now he’ll have something else to worry about, the wrath of his two leading stars!! [TIME]
Melrose Place Star Charged Over Deadly Crash
An actress best known for a stint on Melrose Place has been charged with vehicular manslaughter after causing an alcohol-fueled crash in Princeton, New Jersey. Amy Locane-Bovenizer, then billed as just Amy Locane, played Sandy in the first 12 episodes of the 1990s primetime soap Melrose Place. Locane-Bovenizer caused the fatal accident after trying to flee the scene of another minor accident she had just caused. The actress admitted to consuming “several glasses of wine” prior to driving. According to reports, “responding officers detected the odor of alcohol on defendant Locane-Bouvenizer’s breath and observed other signs of impairment.” Locane-Bovenizer also appeared in Cry Baby, School Ties, and the indie-flick Secretary. The actress and mother of two young children faces up to 10 years imprisonment if found guilty. [NYDN]

Jailed MC Lil Wayne has apparently written an online tribute to a small group of fans to personally thank them for their love and support. Weezy posted his third letter on his website, WeezyThanxYou.com, yesterday and gave a short update and even called himself "blessed" for fans sending pictures and letters to his prison cell on Rikers Island. He writes, "On my end, I'm alive, breathing, and blessed. You already know how I'm passing time - reading and working out." Lil Wayne went on to respond with personal messages to 100 diehard supporters. Jail sounds awesome. [MTV]
Why is the Environment Getting in the Way of a Perfectly Good Football Stadium
It's no secret that Los Angeles needs a massive football stadium in the downtown area. In the rare event that they get a professional team, they need to be ready (and not with the two other stadiums the city already has). But football-hating hippies have recently protested the construction of a new stadium in downtown LA just because the construction (sort of) didn't abide by basic environmentalism standards. It's almost like these tree huggers don't understand that the earth is going to last forever, but Peyton Manning only has three good seasons left! [Field of Schemes]
Pau Gasol Lays Down Some Sweet Tracks
Kobe Bryant and Ron Artest both have rap singles that have (not really) climbed the charts and Luke Walton is regarded as one of the best hip-hop dancers in NBA history. Thus, it comes as no surprise that yet another Los Angeles Laker has entered the entertainment world. Pau Gasol has laid down a track (seriously) called "Get it Together." It's surprisingly not horrible, so take a listen on the link below. [TMZ]
