But she insists the tax man will get his cash.

Brinkley tells, "I was surprised to learn of the tax lien filing and took immediate steps to rectify this matter. I discovered the tax lien was the result of an error. My taxes will be paid in full by Wednesday, December 7th and I expect t...

Christie Brinkley? Not Much Better. With a 80s prom dress and hair to match, it's obvious that Christie was vying for past days. That said, her body looks great!

Maybe Al Pacino is trying out for a Flashdance remake? That's the only reason we could come up with as to why the veteran actor is rocking a headband.

Even Al's look couldn't compete with the fashion disaster of the night: Whoopi Goldberg. A hip...

Alexa Ray Joel is putting her troubled love life behind her and starting afresh after moving out of the New York apartment she suffered an overdose in last year.

Billy Joel's singer/songwriter daughter was hospitalized in December when she complained about breathing difficulties after taking homeopathic medication Traumeel. The breakdown was prompted by a fight with her on/off boyfriend Jimmy Riot, after he refused to accept a Christmas gift from her.

Celebrities That Look Great Over The Years

celebs that look great over the years

This debasing assessment is generally more applicable to women than it is to men, whose aging process garners descriptions like "sugar daddy," "distinguished grey," and "silver fox." Society bids women to believe that in order to be considered beautiful and desirable, they must be cellulite, sag, and wri...
