Bret Michaels Plans to Resume Touring on May 26

(GettyImages.com)

Though he currently remains hospitalized after suffering a brain hemorrhage last week, Bret Michaels hopes to resume touring May 26.

The musician-turned-reality-star “is responding well to tests and treatments,” according to an official update on his Facebook page, but concert dates prior to May 26 will be rescheduled.

Michaels is still being closely monitored and the cause of the hemorrhage has yet to be determined. Yesterday Michaels suffered a complication known as hyponatremia, or seizures caused by a lack of sodium in the body.

“Even though yesterday was a minor setback,” the update reads, “Doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery and plan to release more specific information next Monday.”

The full note is below…

*****     *****     *****     *****     *****     *****

“To all of Bret’s friends and fans,”

“We thank you all for your continued support and outpouring of well wishes for Bret.”

“While additional studies are planned throughout the week to hopefully detect the exact cause of the rupture Bret will remain monitored closely by his medical team to make sure no further complications occur.”

“He is responding well to tests and treatments. Even though yesterday was a minor setback Doctors remain hopeful for a full recovery and plan to release more specific information next Monday. ”

“While Bret is recovering we obviously have some shows that are being rescheduled. We are working to reschedule dates from now until May 21st. At this time we are planning to resume the tour May 26th in Ft. Smith Arkansas provided there are no further complications or setbacks. We will then continue with all scheduled dates throughout the summer and fall, including the June and July tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd.”

“Look for additional information in the days and weeks to come. For those of you with tickets for shows that are being rescheduled, your tickets will be honored on the new dates. Tickets remain on sale for the shows which are being rescheduled although the new dates have yet to be announced.”

OK! Magazine Gets Beat by Fake “Mickey Rourke” Tweet

(GettyImages.com)

Choosing fantasy over fact, OK! goes from Mickey Rourke scoop to duped.

The magazine’s website claims to know which actress the Iron Man 2 villain meant when he reportedly complained about an unnamed co-star recently.

After all, OK! has what it considers an impeccable source — Rourke himself!

The outlet links to a Twitter account (@Mickey__Rourke) that it assumes belongs to the actor.

Sure enough, one tweet “Mickey” wrote refers to an actress’ alleged lack of professionalism and bluntly says, “Here’s a hint: It’s Gwyneth Paltrow.”

For OK!, the case is closed. Rourke dissed Paltrow. Right?

WRONG.

Because there’s a tiny but glaring problem here.

Mickey Rourke isn’t on Twitter.

The account to which OK! links is a fraud.

And, if you actually read the other tweets, a fairly obvious fraud.

Just to double check, Gossip Cop asked a rep for the actor whether it’s him.

It is not.

Rourke “does not have a Twitter account,” we’re told, and “holds Gwyneth in the highest regard.”

“Highest regard” isn’t quite where we hold OK!’s “reporting” here.

Does Jennifer Aniston Have Designs on Brad Pitt’s Hobby?

(GettyImages.com)

Us Weekly takes a swan dive into the deep end today, running a bizarre item that claims Jennifer Aniston is in Architectural Digest only to get ex Brad Pitt’s attention.

Pitt’s “pissed off!” according to the tabloid’s Hot Stuff section. Why? Because Aniston, who graces the March 2010 cover of Architectural Digest, was “never into architecture when they were married.”

Design was his hobby, and “she even made fun of him for it!” alleges an “insider” for Us Weekly.

Pitt appeared on the January 2009 Architectural Digest cover and, claims the “insider,” thinks Aniston’s at-home photo shoot is “desperate” and a “ploy to get his attention because she knows he reads the magazine.”

The Us Weekly source concludes, “Brad feels this is all so desperate.”

Gossip Cop thinks this completely ridiculous story is “desperate.”

Us Weekly expects us to believe that Aniston elected to do an Architectural Digest pictorial because she wanted to annoy her ex-husband? And that it affected Pitt to the point where he was “disgusted” by it, to use the item’s word, and deemed Aniston “pathetic”?

First of all, the only kind of magazine “pictorial” that could provoke such a visceral response from an ex would not be the kind found inside Architectural Digest.

Second, the premise that Aniston suddenly became interested in home decor to irritate her former husband — five years after they split — is as absurd as it sounds. A rep for the actress tells Gossip Cop she’s “always been interested in design,” especially interior design, and that the story is “another pile of crap.”

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel in Bar Mitzvah Brawl?

(GettyImages.com)

Another day, another lame attempt to break up Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.

But, hey, at least this one’s kinda creative!

According to In Touch, Timberlake and Biel, the couple that stubbornly stays together despite the tab’s repeated efforts to derail their relationship, recently locked horns at… a bar mitzvah.

The mag claims the pair shared a “very public spat” while attending the bar mitzvah of a family friend at the SmogShoppe banquet hall in Los Angeles on April 17. “They were bickering most of the night,” alleges one so-called “witness.” “They even stepped outside at one point so that they could argue in private.”

What was the nature of the fight?

In Touch can’t say, of course. Even though Timberlake and Biel supposedly staged a “very public” argument in front of a banquet hall full of guests, the only specific point of contention the “witness” cites is that Biel became frustrated with Timberlake going outside to use his phone.

“Jessica seemed very upset and was reading Justin the riot act,” insists the In Touch source, adding, “He just looked embarrassed — like a little kid being scolded.”

Actually, it’s the tab that should be “embarrassed” with yet another unfounded attack on what it deems a “troubled romance.”

A rep for Biel tells Gossip Cop the rumored bar mitzvah brouhaha is “not true.” And even In Touch doesn’t buy what it’s selling, ending the item by noting that just two evenings before the supposed fight, “the duo shared a peaceful night at a Taylor Swift concert.”

Once again, the tabs are not ‘N Sync with reality.

Academy Award winner Bill Condon will direct The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Summit Entertainment announced today.

In a press release, Condon said, “I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book – and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience.”

Stephanie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, said she is “thrilled” Condon is directing and is “excited to see what he does with the material.”

Condon, who won an Oscar in 1999 for Gods and Monsters, was the front-runner for the project, despite a false claim that Gus Van Sant had already “signed” to do the movie and speculation that Michael Mann was a major candidate.
