Wino Still Lightin' Up Her Lungs

6/24/2008 9:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So she may or may not have emphysema, but one thing isn't changing for Amy Winehouse –- she's still smoking.

Even though she is having serious pulmonary issues, according to her dad, Wino was spotted inhaling a lung snack yesterday after getting out of the hospital. Her rep tells the AP that she doesn't really have emphysema, just an early-stage condition that could lead that way.

Meanwhile, her dad keeps blabbing, saying that if she doesn't stop smoking the rock, "It won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her."

Christie's LI Lolita Sold Silence for $300K


The woman who split up Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook apparently got herself paid by Peter –- though it might all be a big waste of money.

The New York Post reports that Cook shelled out $300K and that Diana Bianchi, his young assistant, agreed not to talk about their affair. Of course, now that Diana might be subpoenaed in court, that cash might be useless, because she would probably be compelled to spill the beans.

Bianchi says she will testify "truthfully" if she has to.

U.S. Really Wants to Hurt Boy George


Boy George's karma isn't good enough for the U.S. government.

The Culture Club ex-frontman just got negged for a visa, so he won't be able to tour North America as planned this summer. His 24-date tour was supposed to start July 11, and then wrap August 23. He was refused permission because of an ongoing court case in London in which he was accused of false imprisonment and assault.

His peeps say Boy is "astounded" at the decision.

You knew Amy W. wouldn't listen to anyone, she is hooked on drugs and cigarettes. Will power doesn't look like her middle name. When I heard that Heath Ledger's family was fighting over the estate, I knew that it's was all about them.

I don't know if I buy any of the Heath stuff. Matilda is his next of kin, not his parents. And the court would see that the will was done many moons before she was born, therefore she'd end up entitled to it all, in many cases.

Shouldn't he (Boy) have had his working Visa in order first? I should think any good concert promoter would have asked for that before planning a tour. Then again, quite sure there never was any such tour. Can't believe people would pay good money to see a freak show.

Peter Cook had one of the most beautiful women on the planet as his wife and he screws it up badly. He'll probably be out $300,000 and his life in tatters after the depostion. All for what? 5 minutes of fun?

Her family should take control and put her in rehab. Wino has no control over her life, she's out of control. Either they force her into rehab or she'll end up 6 feet under, I hope not but that's where she's heading.... I don't understand how someone so talented that's surrounded by so many people and she's not getting any help. Look what happen to Ana Nicole and her addiction...

Amy's family should seek conservatorship and get her the intense therapy she obviously needs.
I wonder if Diana Bianchi paid taxes on that money. If not.... well..... oops.
I hope for Heath's daughter's sake, his will is being taken care of on the up and up. Don't wills take along time to get all straightened out though?

Here in San Diego there are billboards everywhere promoting his concerts. I totally agree that the Visa should have been acquired first, but it seems that the concert tour is/was a real thing.

Are you kidding me?    

What I don't understand is why these people set up actually show dates BEFORE being granted a visa. Why not just get the work visa THEN set up the shows?

Congrats to Ruben and Z. (That's her nickname) The marriage must be soon if they have gotten the license. They got engaged in Vegas a while back. How exciting for them. I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

This is why the record labels are in the toilette. They take these head cases like Winehouse, pump them up into the next big thing, then watch them crash and burn, taking a multi-million-dollar corporate investment with them. Meanwhile, really talented musicians who have their stuff together and are putting out good music languish in clubs. Anyway, getting a record deal is fixed, anyway. I'll stick with MySpace for finding talented artists who actually have their heads in the game.

Although Maltilda deserves the money, I doubt she will ever want for anything. With the obcene ammount of money actors, such as her mom makes, she will be ok. But shame on Heath's family!
