Celine Dion
Celine Dion wants a young family to buy her Florida home.
The 45-year-old singer recently listed her mansion - which comes complete with its own water park and lazy river - for $72.5 million because she and her family have only visited it twice in the last two years.
Once Celine extended the contract of her Las Vegas residency show at the Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino until 2019 she knew she should get rid of the home and she now just hopes somebody will buy it and have many happy times at the fun property.
In a TV interview for 'ET Canada Conversations', she said: "We're going to be leav...

Style Watch: Celebrities Fragrances Dominate The Market

August 4th, 2010 6:05am EDT
Celebrity Fragrances
Jennifer Aniston and Mary J. Blige recently joined the ongoing list of celebrities who launch their own personal fragrances. It seems you haven't really made it unless you make an attempt to market your scent in a bottle (or publish a book).

Celebrities have the power to create, or at least have someone else create, anything to promote their name and rake in more money. Clothing, shoes, bags, restaurants and perfumes are just a few ways celebrities brand themselves.

But who started the celebrity fragrance trend? It certainly wasn't Jennifer Lopez or Paris Hilton.

Elizabeth Taylor has lau...

M. Night Shyamalan: 'My Critics Will Never Be Happy'

M. Night Shyamalan
Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is convinced he'll never be able to please his critics - because they set impossibly high standards for him after his early career success.

Shyamalan shot to fame after writing and directing 1999 hit thriller The Sixth Sense but his more recent projects have been met with disappointing reviews. The moviemaker has now compared his career to that of basketball legend Michael Jordan, who sometimes struggled to meet fans' expectations.

He tells Britain's Total Film magazine, "Look, I loved Michael Jordan, right? He was my favorite basketball player. When I used...

Happy 70th Birthday Bugs Bunny!

July 27th, 2010 9:00am EDT
Bugs bunny at 70
Bugs Bunny, that iconic, carrot-smacking, wisecracking wabbit is 70 years old! In 1940, “A Wild Hare” debuted, introducing Bugs, and his nemesis Elmer Fudd, to the world. Here is where we first heard “What’s up, Doc?”and saw the beginning of how clever Bugs Bunny always outthinks and tricks his foes. Bugs Bunny is funny at its purest—Bugs Bunny building a salad on Elmer Fudd’s head in the barber shop, his fights with Daffy Duck and Yosemite Sam, his conducting the opera and making the poor singer gasp for air—the situations and laughs are endless! Bugs’ appeal is universal; the seven-year- ...

ESPN's '30 For 30': 'The Two Escobars' A Must See Documentary

June 22nd, 2010 9:34am EDT
Two Escobars
Although I had been playing soccer for some years before this, the summer of 1994 was really where my Soccer-As-I-Know-It life began. The first professional match that I ever saw live was also a World Cup knockout round match in which Robert Baggio (who would go on to become one of Italy’s biggest football legends) single-handedly destroyed Nigeria with two very late, very fabulous goals. Personally speaking, this was the moment I became an Italian lifer. That World Cup, played on U.S. soil, will forever be remembered for two things: Baggio’s missed penalty kick that handed the title to Br...

Sexy Spinners underwear
We don't know who Australian cricketer Shane Warne is (the dude in the suit) or who these half-naked guys are. But Starpulse is an equal opportunity website, and we need some guy eye candy once in a while!

Warne launched his new range of self-proclaimed "sexy" underwear called "Spinners" in Sydney, Australia, yesterday. He's not the only sports star who has promoted or launched an underwear line - Michael Jordon has been doing that for years with Hanes. Orioles pitcher Jim Palmer modeled for Jockey. And soccer star David Beckham stripped down for Armani.

Oh, and let's not forget New York ...

Memorable Super Bowl Ads From The Last Decade

February 5th, 2010 11:55am EST
Super Bowl Ads
Ah, Super Bowl ads: the event within the event. It's the reason why non-sports fans take bathroom breaks during the game instead of the commercial breaks. Over the last ten years we've enjoyed ads that run the gamut from hilarious to poignant to controversial. Here are ten memorable ads from this decade.

Careerbuilder, Maybe It's Time, 2009

It takes a few moments for the commercial to get going, but this hilarious ad builds momentum as it goes along. It's also one of the longest Super Bowl ads ever.

Tide To Go, Talking Stain, 2008

80s Vs. 90s: Which Decade Was The Best In Entertainment?

September 26th, 2009 10:03am EDT
Eighties and Nineties nostalgia are running rampant in pop culture right now. Television networks and film companies are resurrecting TV shows and movies like 90210, Melrose Place, Halloween, and Transformers. This obsession with the 80s and 90s have lead to TV specials and debates about which decade is better. Both provided us with fascinating films to watch, memorable music to listen to, and new forms of entertainment that we still use today. But when it comes to entertainment, which decade was better?


In the 80s, there were only three major broadcast networks - ABC, NBC,...

Michael Jordan Jersey Stolen From Eva Longoria Parker
Police in Texas have arrested a man they believe stole a prized basketball jersey autographed by Michael Jordan from Eva Longoria Parker and her husband Tony Parker's home.

The celebrity couple was forced to call in the cops last month after Parker's manager discovered the sports memorabilia item was missing from the San Antonio Spurs star's gym, which was being renovated at the time.

But police in Bexar County are one step closer to having the item returned to Parker after tracking down the alleged thief when he tried to sell the jersey online.

'American Idol' Banter: The Top 5!

April 24th, 2009 9:41am EDT
Paula Abdul typically isn't sober during "American Idol" broadcasts. Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of his generation. Starbucks has way too many locations for its own good. Lil Rounds and Anoop Desai were voted off "Idol's" double elimination Wednesday night.

What do those four sentences have in common? Each one has zero element of surprise.

It can be argued that Allison Iraheta's presence in the bottom two (not three, because Lil was unceremoniously booted without any waiting around) was a surprise, but I would argue that it didn't matter one bit. In fact...

Most athletes are well known, make lots of money and are frequently in the public eye. But there are some athletes who are known more for being famous than for the sports they play.

Check out the top celebrity athletes who have crept their way into the spotlight and went beyond their athletic status:

Dog Movies: A Few Of Our Favorites

Hotel for Dogs
Let's face it: there's a reason they call dog 'man's best friend.' The loyalty and affection is unparalleled in the animal kingdom - and it's a lot easier to train a dog than a goldfish. There are a lot of dogs in need of homes these days, and a number of movies that show the joy of rescuing a pet, like Hotel for Dogs, opening January 16th. In honor of the movie's positive message, we've put together a list of some of our favorite movies featuring top dogs (and the occasional cat).

Must-See Movies of 2009

As 2008 comes to an end, it is time to close the book on the entertainment experiences that we have had this year. Yes, Transformers blew our minds. Girls, Sex and the City blew your minds. To anyone who watched The Haunting of Molly Hartley, I'm sure you want your money back as well. It is time to put all of that behind us, however, and look forward to a new year, and new movies that none of us should miss.

Superstitions are pretty prevalent in almost every sport. Whether its the North Carolina shorts that Michael Jordan wore under his Bulls shorts for every game, Patrick Roy talking to the goal posts, to Roger Clemens who always touched the head of the Babe Ruth statue before playing at Yankee stadium, sports athletes of all kinds follow this quirky behaviors because they believe in luck. The same goes for curses, something that no sports player really like to talk about. The most famous curse is that of the Billy Goat, which seems to have decimating the Cubs, as they haven't been to a World ...

Pop star Justin Timberlake was so nervous when he met his sports idol Michael Jordan, he wet himself.

The SexyBack singer counts the basketball star as one of his biggest role models, and he could not contain his excitement when Jordan admitted he was a fan of his music.

Timberlake says, "When I was young... I wanted to be Michael Jordan. It was weird, I heard (Gary Wright song) Dreamweaver in my head when he walked in the room. He was like, `Hey man, my kids and I, we're big fans of your music,' and I was like, `that's cool...' Up until the point where he walked away and I real...

George Carlin
About three weeks ago, one of the world's best comedians and the first host of "Saturday Night Live" passed away. Here at the worldwide offices of overrated/underrated, we felt a tribute was in order. Problem is, there's nothing you can say about George Carlin that fits the motif. Nothing he did was either under or overrated: He was just great.

Still, respects must be paid in some manner, so instead this article will honor the first host of "Saturday Night Live", by running down a list of the most overrated and underrated frequent hosts of that show. For this article, entrants must ...

Barkley. Lebron. Shaq. Kobe. And of course, His Airness, Jordan. Sound familiar?

His name is already familiar to record buyers who make note of the songwriting credits on major hit records by such superstar artists as Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige.

Harrison Ford
Movie stars Harrison Ford, Kevin Costner and director Steven Spielberg have been named in magazine Forbes' top 10 most costly divorce settlements in Hollywood. Spielberg, who divorced first wife Amy Irving in 1989 at a cost of $100 million, was only beaten to the top of the poll by basketball legend Michael Jordan and singer Neil Diamond, at numbers one and two respectively.

Forbes speculates Jordan's pending divorce from his wife of 18 years, Juanita Vanoy, will set the former NBA star back by more than $150 million - the cost of Diamond's failed 1969 marriage to Marcia Murphey.
