What the Chuck? Barkley Pokering Again

6/20/2008 7:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He promised that he wouldn't gamble again for a couple after running out on a $400K marker, but Charles Barkley is back playing poker in Vegas.

But here's the rub -– the Round Mound says that it's all for charity. He's scheduled to play in a celebrity poker tourney -- the "Ante Up for Africa" event -- at the 2008 World Series of Poker. Players have to pony up $5,000 to play, and are supposed to donate at least half their winnings.

Chuck says he will donate it all. He repaid his debt to the Wynn Las Vegas last month.

Wino Gets More Poking and Prodding


Amy Winehouse might have to ditch two huge gigs because docs still are trying to figure out what's ailing Amy.

The wrecktabulous Brit is still in the hospital in London after collapsing Monday, and her rep says she's being given "additional scans and tests" to determine just exactly what happened. Aimers is supposed to play next weekend for Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday, and then the next day at the big Glastonbury festival.

Both dates are still on, say her peeps.

Oz Town Wants Geena Davis Banned


A Sydney suburb wants to 86 Geena Davis from its streets because it claims her movie crew tried to bribe them into keeping quiet over the crazazy filming schedule.

Geena is filming "Accidents Happen" in the posh hamlet of Ku-ring-gai, reports the Daily Telegraph, and the residents of the town say that production staff tried to "buy them off" in exchange for filming up to 15 hours a day. They're outraged, and they want the production – and Geena – out.

Producers deny the charge. Mate.

Wino just needs a good old fashioned horse tranqualizer. Put that horse faced skank down already. Maybe a little Raid in the beehive would take care of it. Does she still have scabies or was it rabies?

Geena Davis are you kidding me? They still pay her to make movies? I don't think she's made a quailty flick since Beetlejuice. And shouldn't she be gearing up for the Beijing 2008 Archery gold. U.S.A, U.S.A.

If Winehouse gets off drugs she will still be nasty in every way. Nasty looking, nasty personality, nasty cigarettes, nasty tattoos. And a banal singer of a banal genre, R&B.

Phd's and all, the docs are still trying to figure out what is wrong with Amy Winehouse. They really are clueless. The rest of the world knows.

"Amy Winehouse is performing for Nelson Mandela? Does anyone else find this a bit odd?"

Odd indeed!

Crack is WHACK!!!!!    

Why is Amy Wino singing for Mandela? I hope she does not make it. That last little diddy she sang with her man and friend should have gotten her banned in the first place.

You know Amy must have a strong-heart that at last is startingto have problems due to drugs. I hope it is not to late for any drug addict to get clean and sober sometimes it is. Very sad she is very talented but her mind is gone by now and as for playing for Mandela Highly innapropriate!
