We all know that Michael Schumacher is one of the greatest F1 driver and a lot of fans would like to see him come back to what he love doing, today....that is what happened. Because of Felipe Massa's injury, Ferrari F1 team has asked their greatest asset in the team, Michael Schumacher to return to the cockpit of their latest F1 machine.

Schumacher told CNN: "The most important thing first: thank God, all news concerning Felipe is positive. I wish him all the best again".

"I met Stefano Domenicali and Luca di Montezemolo from Ferrari on Wednesday afternoon and together we decided that I will prepare myself to take Felipe's place".

"Though it is true that my Formula One chapter has closed, it is also true that for loyalty reasons to the team I cannot ignore their current unfortunate situation. As the competitor I am I also very much look forward to facing this challenge."

Schumacher's spokesperson Sabine Kehm confirmed to CNN: "He is coming back pending medical exams and will be in the Ferrrari cockpit for the next race in Valencia on August 23 if those tests go well."

On Massa, he is recovering from his injury. He was walking, talking and that is good news. Massa is a great driver. Just look at last season. He almost won.

Anyway...welcome back Michael Schumacher.

There was a lot of speculation as to what happened to Jessica Simpson love life. After her divorce with Nick Lachey, she seen with some high profile people. The latest is the Dallas Cowboys Quarter Back Tony Romo. She was "let go" on the eve of Jessica birthday.

Iron Man 2: Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow

Not much to say except of my fav Comic Book movie has added Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow. If you are familiar with Iron Man or Captain America comic books, then you know what I am talking about. Black Widow is already a cool and sexy character, and when you add a real sexy fox like Scarlett, then you get uber super sexy Black Widow in the live screen. Look for Iron Man 2 in May of 2010.

Robert Redford Gets Married!!!

HAMBURG - A German church says its pastor presided over the wedding between Robert Redford and his German partner.

Renate Massfeller, of the St. Catherine Church in Hamburg, said Wednesday that Pastor Frank Engelbrecht presided over the ceremony Saturday between the 71-year-old U.S. actor and artist Sibylle Szaggars at the luxury Louis C. Jacob Hotel.

The Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper said 30 friends and family members attended the service.

The 51-year-old Szaggars is an abstract artist whose work has been exhibited in Britain, Germany, the United States and elsewhere. She moved to Sundance, Utah — where Redford's Sundance Institute is based — in the 1990s.

A message seeking comment from Redford's publicist in New York was not immediately returned.

Ryan Reynolds is Green Lantern??? WTF

Justin Timberlake was first rumored to get the role for the new and upcoming Green Lantern movie. But after a day, it was officially announced that Rayn Reynolds will play Green Lantern. Not much of the script was mentioned, but will be directed by Martin Campbell. He played Hannibal King in Blade Trinity and also as Wade Wilson or Deadpool in X-Men Origin: Wolverine. I like him as an actor because he is funny, but Green Lantern is not the typical character that he always ended up playing....that is why the WTF in the title. But C8B will give Ryan a chance to redeem himself as an actor and be true to the Green Lantern fans.

Jon Gosselin hanging out with new girlfriend after ditching wife and 8 kids!!

After weeks of speculation that Jon and Kate +8 are on the rocks, we can see what is actually happening. Jon has realized that he can pursue another glamorous life by ditching the show, wife and kids. Not to say this is his problem, but it takes 2 hands to clap. Kate might be the victim but she has something to do with it too. Money is also another root to evil. Remember when they first started out with a modest home and by the season ending episode, they were living large with big house, dogs, cars and trucks and bunch of people helping them. They were living celebrities except the do not really entertain but just open their life to the world to see.

Anyway, first it was Deanna Hummel and now.....Jon has a new beau...22 years old Hailey Glassman. What does Hailey sees in him? Not sure but Jon is moving up the ladder of celebrities. Hailey is the daughter of the plastic surgery doctor that did works for Kate. I think Jon is just enjoying his new found freedom and $$$.

Where are his kids? Not sure. Does he really want this kind of lifestyle? What will he do next? Reality show like "I am a celebrity...get me out of here?" Who knows? I just know that he could not last doing such a thing.

Kelly Chan Gives Birth to a Baby Boy and the son's name is.....

Hong Kong singer-actress Kelly Chen gave birth to a healthy, three-kilogram boy via Caesarean section early Friday morning in Hong Kong.

Her agent, Zhong Zhen, confirmed the news when contacted by news website

The Hong Kong media reported that Chen was rushed to hospital around midnight Thursday after she started to feel uncomfortable. An army of reporters had already congregated outside the hospital.

Chen announced her pregnancy last November and an expected date of birth in early August. She continued to film commercials throughout her pregnancy and did not stop working until May.

The 36-year-old entertainer married her husband, Alex, in a fairytale wedding ceremony last October.

Finally yesterday, Kelly Chen and her husband have made their final decision in choosing their son's English and Chinese names. CHACE LAU SING

The Chinese name was given by the father himself, Alex, and it is Lau Sing (Cantonese), Liu Sheng (Mandarin), which has the meaning of "the sun has just risen"; while the English name is Chace, which has the same pronunciation as Chase, hoping that their boy could set off to chase his own dreams and aspirations. Kelly joked that besides having to chase his dreams, he has to "chase after" a girlfriend, otherwise it might be the girl who would chase him.

Joey Wong Cho Yin is a Buddhist Nun.

During the 80s, there were few HK stars as big as Joey Wong. Every guy dreamt of being with this 172 cm tall girl and every girl dreamt of becoming this Taiwanese borned beauty. After her big breakthrough role in the "Chinese Ghost Story" with the belated Leslie Cheung, she was always considered one of the leading lady in the HK film industry. Despite her mandarin accented cantonese nobody cares...she was tall and beautiful. She could not withstand rumors of being a third party in a relationship and decided to call it quits and moved to Canada. There she also had an unsuccessful relationship with Chinese singer Chyi Chin that lasted for 10 years.

But recent rumor has it that she is very religious and turned to Buddha for answer. She became a nun in a Canadian Buddhist temple. She must have seen too many chinese movies where failed love always meant that she was not meant to have someone became a nun. Well this is unsubstansial and unproven yet. It is just a rumor. But rumor always starts from a certain truth. We will see whatever version will play out. Stay tuned.

Miss Singapore 09 crown was stripped

I think this is totally ridiculous. Miss Singapore 2009 was stripped of her crown because some of her "racy" pictures shown up on the internet and deemed unappropriate. Miss Rachel Kum was just having some fun probably for one of her birthday. This is totally crazy for someone to behave goodie goodie 2 shoes all the time and not have some fun. It is not like she is posing nude or caught having sex with someone. For crying out loud, lighten up folks. I do not know Miss Kum personally, but I would imagine she is pretty popular and have friends that tried to make her do some stupid poses with costumes. When some public people does it.....WHOOO WHAAAA no way. When we do it ourselves...ohhh...we are just having fun. As Sam Jackson says...I am sick of all you MFkers..... Sorry for the rant.. What do you all think? Anyway here are the so call racy pics got from Singapore Seen.

Looks like Lindsay Lohan is on the downhill. Apparently MGM Grand Las Vegas hired her to pre celebrate her birthday and self promote her tanning mist. Here is the reporting words from Page 6.

"LINDSAY Lohan's 23rd birthday isn't until tomorrow, but she's already managed to profit off the day. According to sources, the troubled starlet was paid a cool $70,000 by the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to host an all-day "pre-celebration" at the hotel's Wet Republic pool party last Saturday. At the event, which served as a promotion for her Sevyn Nine self-tanning mist, Lohan changed bathing suits five times before throwing on club gear and dancing to Michael Jackson songs for the rest of the night."

Frankie Lam Cheated on Kenix Kwok and Threatened Suicide?

Kenix Kwok Ho Ying and Frankie Lam Man Lung’s marriage took on a rocky turn with the recent alleged third party involvement of maianland actress, Vicki Dong. A Hong Kong tabloid magazine recently received a CD-ROM containing excerpts of recorded phone conversations with speakers that closely resemble Frankie and Kenix’s voices in discussion over Frankie’s affair. Kenix’s manager, Wang T.C. Chang, said that a statement will be issued shortly to address the recent rumors.

Frankie’s Affair Surfaced; Contemplated Suicide
Often perceived by the public as the ideal couple, Kenix and Frankie have been married for 5 years. Over the years, numerous marriage discord rumors have surfaced, which the couple denied each time. However, perhaps the rumors did not surface without reason. This Friday, a Hong Kong tabloid magazine uploaded one hour sound clips of Kenix and Frankie’s alleged conversations over the affair online. The clips contain various excerpts from conversations recorded over a span of several months. In one of the conversations, a speaker resembling Frankie admitted to Kenix’s manager that he had an affair and contemplated suicide.
In one of the conversations, Frankie asked Kenix’s manager, Wang T.C. Chang, “You've seen those photos of Vicki Dong and I together. What kind of photos are they?" Wang replied, "They are normal photos of you and Vicki in a bedroom. I asked Vicki if she had photographed the pictures and she said no. The photos are not [incriminating nor racy], but Kenix would be very unhappy if she saw them.”

In a frustrated voice, Frankie said to T.C. Chang, "I do not know why Miss Dong told you about our relationship. Are you able to persuade Miss Dong to give you the photographs? If I can not clear up this issue, I will swallow two bottles of sleeping pills!" [Frankie hinted at committing suicide.]
After a short pause, Frankie said “Yesterday, I was honest with Kenix and told her that I was involved with Vicki Dong for a short period of time. I am sure to face the consequences of this. When I became involved with Vicki, Kenix and I were at the most unhappiest point in our marriage.”
In the recording, T. C. Chang told Frankie, "One day, we were at a bar. Suddenly Vicki Dong cried and asked me whether I knew Kenix Kwok. I said yes and she asked about Kenix and your relationship. Afterwards, Vicki said, ‘At one time, I was involved with Frankie Lam.’”

Frankie and Kenix both appeared at the premiere of the newly re-edited version of "Ashes of Time" 《東邪西毒》 earlier this year. But rumors of the pair’s marriage discord surfaced in late 2008. In the last two years, Frankie has suffered declining popularity and was no longer a strong pillar at TVB. As a result, Frankie had to field Kenix’s frequent complaints.
In a sound clip, Frankie said, "Everyday, Kenix complained why I did not accept a new filming project. She complained about many things. It is not because I did not look for work, however I did not come across anything suitable. I am not the boss and can not call the shots to start a multi-million project. Originally, there was discussion about filming and ad, but the contract fell through the last minute.”
Frankie also revealed that his living expenses with Kenix were extremely high and there were many economic constraints. He did not have any dignity at home and often needed Kenix’s approval for many things. In fact, since the pair started acting in the industry, Kenix’s money making ability always exceeded Frankie. In 2008, although Kenix did not film any series, she took on several modeling projects and still made more money than Frankie.

Latest Developments
Apparently, Kenix was aware of Frankie’s affair with Vicki Dong. There were also rumors that she was three months pregnant and very angry at Frankie. However, to make a living, Kenix filmed TVB’s recent series, “Born Rich.” Earlier, reporters spotted Kenix shopping by herself at a Causeway Bay shop. She wore a brand-name dress and carried a luxury Hermes handbag. She arrived at Causeway Bay to buy some discount street fashion and her facial expression appeared pale and sad. After paying for the merchandise, Kenix’s assistant carried the bags for her. Afterwards, Kenix quickly entered a car and left.
Another source said that Kenix and Frankie have already separated. Allegedly, Kenix’s manager, T.C. Chang will address the public with any press questions.
