It has been a year since the tragic and untimely death of Heath Ledger. He was found dead at 28 from an accidental overdose in his SoHo apartment January 22, 2008. The year anniversary of his passing also coincides with the announcement of the nominations for the 2009 Academy Awards, for which Heath is predicted to be nominated for best supporting actor for his wicked portrayal as the Joker in The Dark Knight.
Earlier this month during the Golden Globe Awards he was honored posthumously for his role in The Dark Knight.
“We are overjoyed for him,” his father Kim Ledger told PEOPLE of his son’s win for best supporting actor in a drama.
His brilliant career was cut short but his contributions continue to be honored.
Alex Rodriguez recently spoke to People Magazine about his charity work and of course about his relationship with Madonna.
When asked about his relationship with Madonna he said:
When asked if there is any romance between them at all he said:
“We’re friends – that’s it.”
There have been so many rumors about the two of them – i have lost count. From flying around the country for some alone time, to attending numerous concerts of Madonna, to moving in together – A-Rod summed it up by saying:
“You have to have a sense of humor when it comes to this stuff. If I answered every rumor we’d be here for three weeks.”
I don’t believe they are just friends. Remember the movie, ‘When Harry Met Sally’?? Is it humanly possible for a heterosexual man to be “just friends” with a heterosexual woman. I’m going to go with I doubt it. What about you – what do you think??

Unless you are living under a rock – everyone has heard of Katie Holmes. She went from being the “cute girl from Dawson’s Creek” to the wife of Tom Cruise. She lives an an incredibly high-profile life – but says many people still have the wrong idea about her.
Katie Holmes speaks to The New York Times Style Magazine, scheduled to be released on Sunday. In the magazine, Katie stated:
“There’s a misperception about me that I just became this wallflower, this woman who doesn’t have any control of her life and that’s pretty wrong. From the very beginning, I’ve made choices in my life that have been very strong. ”
Katie married Tom in 2006 – her official prince. She stated:
“When I met Tom I was completely in love and, yes, I admired him growing up – he’s Tom Cruise! … When I met him, he was so warm and I thought, Wow! You can be a superstar and a human being. He made me feel so amazing.”
Katie maintains her happiness by tuning out a lot of the chatter about herself . She has too much to do and as she puts it:
“I’m a mom and an actress with a play to do every night. I can’t pay attention to all that noise.”
It definitely takes a strong person to tune out all the “noise” . Especially the noise of the cameras clicking and following her every move. I give her a lot of credit – it can’t be easy.
There have been rumors floating around that MADONNA and Alex Rodriguez are quietly shopping for love nests on the Upper East Side and on the East End, sources told Page Six.
A knowledgeable real estate source said the couple are
“discreetly looking at properties between Fifth and Park avenues, from just above 60th Street through the 80s.”
I’m not sure just how discreet it is since it’s now public knowledge.
They’ve been looking at double-width mansions in the vicinity of $30 million to $60 million.”
Both A-Rod and Madonna have homes in Manhattan but A-Rod’s home has been on the market since he announced his split with his wife. Madonna has a place in Central Park West.
Do you think there is any truth to this rumor??
Yes – it’s true!!
According to People Magazine, Madonna and Alex Rodriguez were both spotted in Mexico City last weekend.
Although the two have not confirmed their romance, there was a “moment” that said it all – when, according to E!, A-Rod handed Madonna a bottle of water during her concert in Miami.
What do you think – does handing someone a bottle of water – especially when they’re thirsty – mean your a couple?? If so – I had better be more careful going forward.
Do you think they’ll last??
Don’t you love when you read an article in a newspaper and you find out later that the article was COMPLETELY wrong. I mean not even in the same country – wrong.
I probably had an inkling that there wasn’t too much truth to the “rumor” when I wrote Fact or Fiction in the headline. But still – i do feel a bit HAD!!
So as it turns out I originally wrote that Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated Thanksgiving in Florida when in fact I saw a photo on another website stating that she celebrated in London with Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal. They were each spotted leaving a Thanksgiving party thrown by Richard Rogers at his Chelsea home in London.
I didn’t see where Chris Martin was but hopefully he wasn’t too far. I am still rooting for them!!

Alex Rodriguez ended up spending Thanksgiving with Madonna and his family. Before you get excited – it was not at the same time.
According to the Daily News, A-Rod was in Miami yesterday with his ex-wife and kids for Thanksgiving dinner and girl “friend” Madonna for “dessert”.
That answers the mystery question – Where is A-Rod spending Thanksgiving??
Talk about being pulled in different directions and trying to make everyone happy. Thankfully everyone was in Florida otherwise it would have been impossible to do it all!!
