charlie had no other choice either keep the part and wind up messing up since he did not have time to prepare right and thus a back lash. or accept that he no longer is going to be part of it and some one else can risk their career if it bombs. true conrad seems to be getting off light for killing michel and he is paying for it by not being able to work as a doctor any more . as for icons gene could say the same about the doors or any other band for a music icon is if the band or singer is still being talked about long after they left the scene like nirvana.

I think Charlie dropped out because of the backlash. I think he is wrong for doing that. Example : look at the backlash Robert Pattinson got from people did no who he was and that he was British. They had a list of people they preferred. But Rob and Summit pushed forward and young and older women love Robert Pattinson. Charlie should have taken that chance. Robert still draw crowds of people. Samethinv could have pappened for you. I wonder who will now get that part?

Hey Harvey,
I see you're running another story about Lamar - only THIS one is about his meeting with the Lakers. For MONTHS now you written STORIES (not articles) about his drug problems of which there is NO PROOF.
How much are you paid the Kardashian/Jenners to destroy someone's image and is that amount of money worth it?
Does it bother you to try and ruin someone?

I don't get it--middle aged woman writes pornographic novel that for some reason is okay for middle aged women to admit they have read-- and we should care who acts in the movie? Sounds like a creepy, stupid movie. If you want porn--go for it-- but don't pretend it is anything other than titillation.

About Seal and Heidi: Americans ALWAYS have a tendency to Americanize everything! Seal is British and Heidi is Germany to begin with (forget their US citizenship, we all have US citizenship, but that doesn't change us from where we come from) Europeans peck each other for a hi and goodbye! We don't handshake! Can't believe that all of you who travel miss little common things like these that make other countries different from the US!!!!
