"Dancing With the Stars" Drama: Jeremy Miller from "Growing Pains" Once Dumped Candace Cameron for Danica McKellar
If you missed the premiere of "Dancing With the Stars" last night, then you missed some OLD-SCHOOL SITCOM DRAMA.
CANDACE CAMERON BURE from "Full House" and DANICA MCKELLAR from "The Wonder Years" are both competing. But it turns out the dance floor isn't the only thing they've shared.
Candace used to date JEREMY MILLER from "Growing Pains" . . . until he DUMPED HER FOR DANICA. Candace informed Danica of this fact during rehearsals, and of course they had VIDEO, which they played on the show.
Candace said Jeremy dumped her by PHONE. Danica seemed surprised to learn that she caused the breakup. Of course she could have been ACTING.
Chris Brown Was Booted from Rehab for Touching a Woman's Elbows and Hands
We now know why CHRIS BROWN was booted from rehab on Friday, and it's somewhat amusing. TMZ claims he broke THREE of the facility's rules, including: "Stay at least two feet away from the women."
Supposedly, the rule was in place for Chris specifically because of his notorious BEATDOWN of RIHANNA. Sources say he violated it by, quote, "touching elbows and hands with a woman."
TMZ claims Chris also had some sort of "sexual encounter" with a woman at the facility earlier this month . . . but for some reason, he didn't get in trouble for that.
The other two violations were: Chris refusing a drug test after returning from an authorized outing, and, quote, "making a mockery of rehab during a group session with some harsh comments."
It's unclear what he said at that time . . . but at some point in rehab, Chris also allegedly said, quote, "I'm good at using guns and knives." (???)
Chris was promptly arrested after he was kicked out, because he's not legally allowed to leave rehab. Now, he'll have to cool his heels in jail for a month . . . until a previously scheduled probation hearing on April 23rd.
Mick Jagger's Girlfriend, Designer L'Wren Scott, Committed Suicide
Designer L'WREN SCOTT was found dead in her apartment yesterday morning of an apparent suicide. There are some conflicting reports on her age . . . some say she was 49, others say she was 47.
The police found her hanging from a doorknob with a scarf around her neck. No suicide note was found . . . but there were also no signs of forced entry or foul play.
L'Wren had been dating MICK JAGGER for at least a decade, with some sources saying they'd been together since 2001. He was with the ROLLING STONES in Australia at the time of her death.
As for WHY she may have committed suicide, friends say there were "no signs of depression" . . . but Britain's "Daily Mail" says it could've had to do with money.
Supposedly, her company was nearly $6 million in the red, and she owed her creditors another $7.6 million. The "Mail" reports that she was "embarrassed" to ask Mick for help, despite the fact that he's worth somewhere around $300 million.
Of course, that assumes Mick and L'Wren were still together. The "New York Post" claims L'Wren told a friend last week that Mick had DUMPED HER.
Mick hasn't commented directly . . . but his rep says, quote, "He's completely shocked and devastated by the news." When asked if they were still dating, the rep said, quote, "of course."
And he called the breakup report, quote, "a horrible and inaccurate piece of gossip during this very tragic time for Mick."
L'Wren designed clothes for a TON of celebrities, including: Angelina Jolie, Penelope Cruz, Amy Adams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Oprah, and even First Lady Michelle Obama.
The Stones were set to begin a brief Australian tour tomorrow . . . but Mick has already left to return to New York, so at least the first show will have to be canceled or postponed. There's no update yet from the band.
