Farrell "Stalker" Apologizes

28 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The woman accused of stalking Colin Farrell told a court on Monday she was sorry for confronting the Irish actor during his appearance on America's The Tonight Show in July. Dessarae Bradford, 31, admitted her actions were over-zealous, but insists her "relationship" with the Miami Vice star was real. Bradford, who has previously written a book about her alleged affair with Alec Baldwin, believes Farrell "just wanted to be book number two." She fumed, "He's trying to give the impression that I'm some stalker, some delusional fan, which is absolutely not true." A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled in July Bradford must keep at least 492 feet away from Farrell until the court hearing last month. The restraining order has since been extended to 2009. »

Mickey Hargitay Dead at 80

19 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay's bodybuilder father Mickey Hargitay has died after a lengthy illness. He was 80. The Hungarian strongman, who was married to Jayne Mansfield, died last Thursday. Hargitay was in hospital being treated for a mystery illness when his daughter gave birth to her first child in June. The actress had to dash from a scheduled appearance on America's The Tonight Show earlier this summer to be by her father's bedside, and she broke down in tears as she paid tribute to him when she won her first Emmy Award in August. She told reporters the best thing about winning an Emmy was "that my dad was gonna be really happy." Born Miklos Hargitay in 1926, the bodybuilder fled his native Hungary in 1947 to escape the compulsory Soviet military draft. Hargitay won the Mr. Universe bodybuilding title in 1955 and made his mark as a movie star in The Loves Of Hercules after appearing in Mae West's New York revue. Before gaining fame, he worked as a carpenter and plumber, and famously remodeled the Pink Palace - the Hollywood home he shared with Mariska's mother Mansfield. »
