Celebrities You May Not Know Have Chronic Illnesses
More than 65 million people worldwide have epilepsy, according to the Epilepsy Foundation. Medication can be effective, but millions of people with the disease continue having seizures for the rest of their lives.

Several celebrities have been diagnosed with Epilepsy, including some that may surprise you.

Prince told PBS's Tavis Smiley in a 2009 interview: "I used to have seizures when I was young. My mother and father didn't know what to do or how to handle it but they did the best they could with what little they had."

The singer added: "My mother told me one day I walked in to her a...

Debbie Gibson Reveals She's Battling Lyme Disease
Singer Debbie Gibson has decided to open up about a health diagnosis after fans started criticizing her weight loss.

The 80s pop star announced on her website on Wednesday in a post title "When life hands you a lemon...or lyme!" that she's battling Lyme disease. She wrote, "It is an elusive disease that disguises itself as many other things, and creates a lot of pain and discomfort. The first symptoms came in the form of food sensitivities. I found I could not touch sugar, starch, caffeine, certain oils, without having a severe reaction that felt like electricity running through my body."

'The Celebrity Apprentice' Finale - Arsenio Hall Takes The Title
Last week on Celebrity Apprentice: Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall, the Final Two, have been tasked with having to produce, host, and sell tickets to a celebrity charity event. They’ll be responsible for all aspects of the show, including creating a thirty second charity awareness ad, and producing a variety show to entertain their guests. They themselves will be the entertainment at their show. This week; the live finale.

Clay Aiken, Arsenio Hall Advance to Finale
Previously, on Celebrity Apprentice: the Final Five was whittled down to four, when Teresa Giudice project managed her team’s assignment to a loss. But the Donald was not finished yet; he brought in last season’s Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich, and runner up Marlee Matlin, to interview Arsenio Hall, Aubrey O’Day, Clay Aiken and Lisa Lampanelli. Based on John and Marlee’s recommendations, he fired Lisa. This week, we’ll find out the second person chopped, and have one last challenge. Next week, the winner will be chosen. Ready?

Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Fergie and Paul Stanley were among the stars who turned out to honour TV legend Dick Clark at a memorial service at his home in California last week.

The beloved entertainer passed away last month at the age of 82 after suffering a heart attack, and a host of famous faces turned out to remember Clark at a private tribute in the grounds of his Malibu mansion last Thursday.

March Of Dimes President Says Dee Snider Is A 'Champion For All Babies'

Dee Snider
Twisted Sister star Dee Snider has raised $325,000 in support of women's reproductive health charities following his eviction from reality series Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday.

The frontman signed up as a contestant on the show in a bid to raise money for the March of Dimes, which works to help expectant mothers through pregnancy and provide support to infants with birthing problems.

And although Snider was booted from the show prematurely, the singer/actor still managed to hand over a massive check to his favorite charity, and March of Dimes president Dr. Jennifer L. Howse couldn't be m...

The Celebrity Apprentice
During an extended three hour episode, I watched the Celebrity Apprentice last night. And I only fell asleep twice! Here’s what happened:

Last week: The teams put together parties to launch a new line of mock tail drinks. The men of Unanimous won the challenge with their beach party, and the women of Forte suffered the loss of Patricia Velasquez, who was fired. Aubrey cried crocodile tears, as she had hoped Dayana Mendoza would be the one to leave. Clay Aiken brought checks worth $50,000.00 to the National Inclusion project.

This week, the teams meet up at Trump Towers with Donald Trump a...

Last week, on Celebrity Apprentice: The teams were tasked with making a viral video. Unanimous’ male team was led by Lou Ferrigno, and the female Forte team by Tia Carrere. The men’s earlier frustration with Lou was forgotten when Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall pointed out that Penn Jillette’s brainstorming style was not supportive of Lou’s management. Penn suddenly found himself being put forward as a possible target for firing. But the women of Forte weren’t happy either, and Tia, as Project Manager, took responsibility and sacrificed herself for her team when they lost the challenge.

Last week, on The Celebrity Apprentice, the women’s FORTE team won the challenge, and the men of UNANIMOUS got gut punched when not one, but TWO of their team were fired. Both Adam Carolla, Project Manager, and Michael Andretti hit the road when Trump decreed that Adam’s biggest failing was not showcasing Michael’s brand power in a challenge revolving around cars. Oh, and for not naming names in the boardroom, naughty Adam. But the ladies had a few tussles that may impact the solidarity of their group before too long. Patricia Velasquez interviewed that the ‘back stabbing and lies’ must sto...

The Celebrity Apprentice
Last week, the teams designed a ‘living window display’ for Ivanka Trump’s new fashion collection. The ladies team, FORTE, won, although the men of UNANIMOUS had a strong display and great branding ideas. George Takei took one for the team, although Lou Ferrigno was once again put forward as a weak link. The men feel that Lou presents himself as a go getter offering 110% when in the Board Room, but when actually working on a challenge, only offers ideas that center around his being the Hulk.

Dayana Mendoza had been Project Manager for FORTE, so she received the $20,000.00 donation for her...

Last week, the Celebrities worked a Medieval Times angle. Lou Ferrigno hulked out when Penn Jillette mentioned his lack of focus, but it was Victoria Gotti who got the axe. Can the ladies of Forte pull it together, now that Victoria is gone, or will the men of Unanimous carry on their winning streak?

After the firing, Lisa Lampanelli swore she’d never Project Manage again, but she’s more determined than ever that Forte kick some Unanimous butt. Penn Jillette had the pleasure to present his team’s win of $40,000.00 to Linda Smith for his charity “Opportunity Village”.

'The Celebrity Apprentice' Episode 2 – There's No Crying In Baseball Or Apprentice!

2/27/2012 3:13pm EST
Last week, the celebs pushed ‘sammiches,’ making a record profit donation for any first week of the series, when American Chopper star Paul Teutel Sr. slightly overcharged one customer to the tune of $305,000. The men of Unanimous rocked, and walked, leaving the ladies in their dust. Although none of the women on Team Forte seemed to like Victoria Gotti’s attitude, they, and even The Donald, were not about to get on the Mob Princess’ bad side. So they axed the quietly classy, and original Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs. Looks like the ground rules have been laid; win by any means, and don’t worry...

“18 celebrities, 18 egos – all fighting to become The Celebrity Apprentice” Yep, that’s our Donald, rallying the troops. As the celebs gather, it’s hard not to share in Trump’s vision of a world ruled by his chosen few, those ‘used to be’ and ‘almost were’ C and D list celebrities who, armed only with smartphones, can strong arm their wealthy friends and fans into financially backing their charities.

What could be more frightening than Trump’s bombastic boasting? Each of the celebrities declaring their intention to win, while tiny mafia princess Victoria Gotti bluntly says “you have to wa...

Journey's 'Don't Stop Believin'' Makes History

7/30/2011 7:20pm EDT
American rockers Journey have gone down in history - their hit Don't Stop Believin' has been named the number one single of the 20th century.

The group's catchy tune has seen a boost in popularity in recent years after the stars of TV musical Glee performed the 1980s track on its first season in 2009.

The band members performed live on the streets of New York on Friday as part of Today's summer concert series and they were presented with a special plaque to commemorate the feat, which was certified by analysts at media research company Nielsen SoundScan.

Eighties pop queens Debbie Gibson and Tiffany performed on "Good Morning America" in Central Park, New York, this morning. The duo made several costume changes. We think Debbie looks best in red (see more photos below). What do you think?

The singers are teaming up for a five-date comeback tour playing some of their own classics and covers of other 80s hits.

Katy Perry's 'Last Friday Night' Video Features Cameos From Rebecca Black, Deborah Gibson, Corey Feldman & More (Watch It!)

Katy Perry and Rebecca Black
Katy Perry's campy new video for her party anthem "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" was released online Sunday and made its TV debut Monday evening, and there's no shortage of stars making cameo appearances.

Katy drummed up some buzz for the video by setting up Facebook and Twitter accounts under the name Kathy Beth Terry, a 13-year-old alter-ego who's a geeky student with braces and "likes Sudoku puzzles, the solar system, high school science fairs," and is always wearing her orthodontic headgear.

In the John Hughes-esque clip, Katy wakes up after a party wondering how she ended up in bed w...

Eighties pop rivals Debbie Gibson and Tiffany are putting their past differences behind them and heading out on tour together.

The former teen stars, who were often portrayed as chart competitors in their heyday, recently teamed up onscreen to poke fun at their rivalry in TV movie Mega Python VS. Gatoroid.

They are now planning to go one step further by announcing a concert tour together, celebrating music from the 1980s and performing songs by other artists as well as their own material.

Debbie Gibson showed up at the "Take Me Home Tonight" Los Angeles premiere in a jungle-print half shirt and sparkly skinny jeans. She paired the look with green eyeshadow. The film is set in 1988, so we can see she's just paying homage. What do you think of her 80s-inspired fashion?

The 40-year-old pop star recently starred in the made-for-television movie "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid" about a crisis in the Everglades where giant pythons threaten the alligator populations.  Fellow 80s pop star Tiffany co-starred.

Debbie Gibson Warns Justin Bieber, Tells Him To 'Slow Down'

1/15/2011 1:00pm EST
Debbie Gibson
Eighties pop singer Debbie Gibson has warned Justin Bieber to slow down on his rise to superstardom, because he will "lose his sanity" if he fails to stay grounded.

Gibson became a teen sensation after the release of her single Shake Your Love in the 1980s and she credits her mother's guidance with helping her to avoid the pitfalls of fame.

But she worries Bieber, 16, is taking on "too much too soon" - and fears his hectic schedule will cause him to crash and burn when he's older.

She tells, "People have to remember even though a kid can be wise beyond their years professi...

Former teen star Debbie Gibson has credited her mother with saving her from the pitfalls of fame - because she was determined her daughter would be "sane, happy and healthy" after her popularity disappeared.

The singer-turned-actress became a teen sensation in the 1980s and admits she experienced an emotional turmoil but managed to hide it from her fans. And Gibson is convinced her manager mum was the one who kept her feet firmly on the ground, because she refused to allow her daughter to get lost in her own hype.

The singer tells Fox News, "Growing up, there's this weird thing when you...

1980s pop singing sensations Debbie Gibson and Tiffany will bury their pop princess rivalry to co-star in the new ripped-from-the-headlines Syfy Saturday Original Movie, "Mega Python Vs Gatoroid," which will go into production later this month for a scheduled 2011 release.

In the film, there's a crisis in the Florida Everglades as giant pythons are threatening the alligator population. Gibson portrays a fanatical animal rights advocate who frees illegally imported exotic snakes from pet stores, sending them into the Everglades where the pythons become mega-sized.

80's Pop Star Deborah Gibson Flashes Her Sexy Abs In Las Vegas

Deborah Gibson hosted the "HALLOW-EIGHTIES" 80's Bash at Tao Nightclub in Las Vegas yesterday looking like she works out (a lot!). She has the stomach of a 23 year old, not 39! For someone pushing 40, she looks fantastic. What do you think? See more photos after the jump.

Earlier this year the 80's pop star dismissed reports she was a victim of the economic crash and her home was going into foreclosure. The singer's publicist insisted Gibson was simply moving out of her home and in with her boyfriend Rutledge Taylor.

Known as "Debbie" Gibson 20 years ago, she became a pop phenomenon ...

Imagine driving across the country with nothing but the great open road in your future. Going through barely-there towns and the desert, the road is full of possibilities (as well as seedy hotels and exorbitant gas prices). What makes the drive go by quicker? Music. It's essential for any kind of driving - whether you're on your way to the grocery store or to visit your friend's summer place up north. It's important that your playlists and CDs feature a mix of your favorite songs, and the music you pick can set the theme of your entire trip.

It's another dose of "Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann," and this episode went down as smoothly as chunky peanut butter on dry toast topped with Bubblelicious gum.

Reflecting on song choices last week, I lamented the lack of songs from the new millennium, and I think the producers heard me on this one. Wait, what was that? The Spice Girls' "Spice Up Your Life" came out in 1997? Scratch that. Let me make a Dionne Warwick psychic prediction. Next week's opening song and dance number will most likely be "Tubthumping" by Chumbawumba, with a special appearance by The Cranberries. Lo...
