The teenager whose illness is a moving highlight of the director's Christmas documentary is now on the mend
No one who watches Kevin Macdonald's new documentary film will forget the scene: standing at the hospital bedside of his desperately sick grandson on Christmas Day last year, 90-year-old Bill Reid, a former second world war pilot, has only one wish. He asks for the chance to see his entire family together again next Christmas Day. And it seems that, a year on, his wish has been granted.
The sickroom vignette – which shows 20-year-old Will Pope's efforts to speak, as he lies, surrounded by his relatives and attached to life-support machines – forms a key moment in Macdonald's latest cinematic collage, Christmas in a Day, about the British approach to the festive season. The Oscar-winning director, who made The Last King of Scotland and Touching the Void, has put together footage »

We knew that Damon wasn't the perfect guy on "The Vampire Diaries," but we've always excused his behavior before since it was in the name of saving himself, Elena, his brother Stefan, or anyone else. But what we learned from Thursday (Dec. 5) night's episode, "The Cell," changed everything.
After he was re-caught by Wes and the Augustine society, we learned about Damon's first imprisonment in the basement on campus at Whitmore College. Flashback to ... after Damon abandoned Stefan on a train track during WWII (remember Lexi made Damon realize he wasn't good for Stefan's recovery back then). One of his ancestors lured Damon back to Mystic Falls and sold him out to the Augustine society for money. Don't worry: the cowardly Salvatore was murdered by Damon before Stefan showed up to get vervained as well, but Damon wasn't so lucky to escape. A random doctor, Dr. Whitmore to be precise, »
Britney Spears sure knows how to create a scene. With one estimate saying 1,000 people were waiting for her, the gathering took place outside the Planet Hollywood Resort on Tuesday as the pop princess made her "official arrival" to Sin City, all in anticipation of her 2-year residency show at the Strip hotel - due to kick off on Dec. 27, just in time for the New Year's Eve crowds. With giant pink letters bearing Britney's name adorning the steps to the casino, at least a dozen dancers from her upcoming show performed outside the hotel, amounting to a bit of a »

Billy Joel has announced that he's setting up shop at Madison Square Garden for the foreseeable future. He'll play "a show a month at the Garden for as long as there's demand," he said this morning at a press conference. Joel already has sold-out concerts scheduled for January 27, February 3, March 21, and April 18, with tickets for his May 9 birthday show not yet for sale, plus he's playing at the Barclays Center on New Year's Eve. That's a lot of Billy Joel, America! Msg is calling Joel their fourth franchise, along with the Knicks, the Rangers, and the Liberty, but given how those teams are doing — the Knicks are 3-13, the Rangers 14-14, and the Liberty ended their last season 11-23 — that's maybe not the association they want to make. »

The 33-year-old E! star has been outranked by Beyoncé, who edged Kardashian out of the top spot. In the past 12 months, the R&B diva caused controversy when she sang over a prerecorded track on Inauguration Day.

When "Hogan Knows Best" first aired in 2005, the world was introduced to a Hulk Hogan they didn't know existed. For over two decades Hogan was a hero to kids around the world as the world's most popular professional wrestler.
Suddenly, he had issues like everyone else, sometimes far worse. In a clip from his appearance on "Oprah: Where Are They Now," Hogan reveals that the end of "Hogan Knows Best" was a breaking point for him.
"After the show, I kind of hit rock bottom," Hogan says. He points to his marriage falling apart and the car crash his son, Nick Hogan, was involved with, while also noting that he began heavily drinking at the time. "I always wondered how somebody could take their own life," he says. "I thought, 'You know what? Maybe this would be easy.'"
It all started to turn around for Hogan after a New Year's Eve »
