Anderson's Marriage Annulled
is single again after her two-month marriage to Rick Salomon
was annulled in Los Angeles on Monday. The former Baywatch
actress, 40, wed professional poker player Salomon in October, but the couple separated in December. On Friday, Salomon submitted legal papers calling for the union to be annulled, ticking the box marked "fraud" as the reason for the split. Anderson had cited irreconcilable differences when she originally filed for divorce. And, on Monday, the marriage was officially annulled in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Anderson has previously been married to rockers Tommy Lee
, with whom she has two sons, and Kid Rock
, while Salomon's ex-wives are Elizabeth Daily
and Shannen Doherty
. Anderson's marriage to Kid Rock was similarly short-lived - they divorced after less than six months as husband and wife.

British Star Sangster Lands Tintin Role?
Teenage actor Thomas Sangster
is set to take on the role of cult comic hero Tintin
in the upcoming movie franchise, according to reports. The 17-year-old Brit, who has starred in hit movies Love Actually
and Nanny McPhee
, is said to have emerged as the frontrunner to play the intrepid young reporter in a trilogy of films based on the famed comics by Belgian cartoonist Hergé
, aka Georges Remi. And Sangster sparked further speculation he is to be handed the lead role in the planned film trilogy after flying to Los Angeles to work on test action sequences with renowned moviemaker Steven Spielberg

in the film franchise. Serkis has signed on to play Tintin's sidekick Captain Haddock. The trilogy will reportedly be split between Spielberg and Peter Jackson
, with the Saving Private Ryan
director managing the first film in the franchise, and the Lord Of The Rings

Indiana Family Gives Swayze Hope
Movie star Patrick Swayze
has been given a huge boost in his pancreatic cancer battle - an Indiana family has launched a campaign to force U.S. medical bosses to make a revolutionary new treatment available to sufferers. The Loughmans of Indianapolis launched their new initiative on Monday in a desperate bid to find a cure for the family matriarch, who ironically is a big fan of the ailing Ghost star. Connie Loughman was diagnosed with deadly pancreatic cancer last summer, just months before Swayze was diagnosed. As part of their public campaign, the Loughman family has launched the website CureConnieAndPatrick.com and they've also produced a new video promoting their efforts. A spokesman for the Loughmans says, "Well-meaning, but misguided, regulations have tied the hands of the Food & Drug Administration and the biotechnology firm, Genvec, from providing access to the only drug shown to cure the disease. Meanwhile, 90 percent of patients die within one year of being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and 95 percent are dead within five years of diagnosis. The Loughman family hopes that public pressure will convince the Fda and biotechnology firm, Genvec, to cut through the red tape and grant access of the gene therapy Tnferade to Mrs. Loughman... and others battling pancreatic cancer, including actor Patrick Swayze."
Presley Caught Up in Convicted Surgeon Scandal
's ex-wife Priscilla Presley
is reportedly undergoing corrective surgery for a botched cosmetic procedure she had done in 2003. The socialite and actress, who is among the celebrities taking part in the current season of reality TV show Dancing With The Stars
, was a client of Dr. Daniel Serrano
, who was jailed for injecting industrial, low-grade silicone into women's faces, reports Tmz.com. Serrano claimed his injections worked better than Botox, but the non-approved drug he allegedly smuggled into America from Argentina left some clients with holes in their faces and paralysis. And he wasn't even licensed. Serrano was indicted for smuggling drugs, and the conspiracy and use of unapproved drugs, and convicted. He was released last week and is currently being investigated by federal immigration officials, and could be deported. Presley's publicist has issued a "no comment" to Tmz.com's claims.

Brandy Denies Non-Payment of Gardening Bill
has responded to a legal claim she owes a landscape gardener $3,576, insisting she never received a bill and the amount has now been paid. Raymond Soriano Landscape filed legal documents in a Los Angeles court alleging the star owed the company unspecified "landscaping expenses" for work carried out at her property between July 2007 and February 2008. But the 29-year-old - real name Brandy Norwood
- claims she was never notified of the outstanding amount owed because the bills were sent to the wrong address. Her representative Courtney Barnes says, "Brandy's business manager moved offices and never received any of the bills in question. The landscaper has now been paid and we expect that the lawsuit will be immediately dropped."
