How Derek ‘The Hoff’ Hough Saved Cheryl Tweedy’s Life And Other Facts

derek hough chezza1 How Derek The Hoff Hough Saved Cheryl Tweedys Life And Other FactsDID you know that Derek Hough saved Cheryl Cole’s life? The Mirror says Hough called “999” when Cheryl took ill. Yes, he had previously taken married Cheryl to Tanzania, where it is thought she caught malaria. But that was Cheryl Cole. The Mirror says this woman’s name is Cheryl Tweedy. Although it isn’t.

But the story goes that Hough called the emergency services. As we learn:

Cheryl Tweedy has revealed that she owes her life to boyfriend Derek Hough.

The X Factor star says a medical blunder left her just hours from death, and she only pulled through after dancer Derek told medics to carry out further tests… which showed she had malaria.

Hough is pronounced Hoff, as in David Hasselhoff. Derek Hough is the new Mitch Buchanan. He’s not, reportedly, dating a married woman. He’s saving her life:

Cheryl told a friend: “Derek saved my life. If he hadn’t spoken out to the doctors and told them he thought something was seriously wrong I would probably have died.”

joe mcelderry gay 300x168 Joe McElderry On Being Gay On Twitter, Orgies And Sex With Simon CowellJOE McElderry is gay. Yeah, the big-toothed singer who won X Factor with an impression of a Jonas Brother at a school concert is a homosexual. It’s front-page news on the Sun.

Previously Joe was known for being blocked from reaching the Christmas number 1 slot by a successful campaign to elevate Rage Against The Machine to the top spot.

Joe has decided to tell everyone he is gay because:

a) It’s a slow news day?
b) The X Factor is coming around again and people have forgotten who the hell he is?
c) It’s easier talking about your sexuality than having a hit song?
d) Simon Cowell told him to?
e) Someone “hacked” into his Twitter account and aid he was gay?
f) He’s recording a new album?

George Clooney’s Waxwork Lights Up The Wet Room: Pictures

THE new George Clooney waxwork at Madame Tussauds in London was supposed to be the central plank of a photo shoot featuring a bevy of women looking amorously at the hairy candle. Instead it turned into a weird display of freakish emoting as the women – a mob of staff and visitors – mop their eyes and look at Clooney with a mixture of boredom and pity. One groper wears widow’s weeds as if she has news of Clooney’s demise. Clooney remains unmoved. But with a decent match he may light up the room yet…

justin diamond devon james When Tiger Woods’ Porno Shag Devon James Met Dustin Diamond: Sodom RevisitedJUST when you thought things couldn’t get worse for Saved by the Bell flunky Dustin “Screech” Diamond, the loser manages to go another notch lower on the ladder that is life-after-fame, writes Anorak’s Man in LA.

When legitimate producers stopped calling, his homemade porn tape bombed and his tell-all book didn’t top the Times bestseller list, he had to do something to keep his name out there.

That “something” turns out to be an evening as the “special referee” at something called the Celebrity “Big Bang” Wrestling match tonight in Philadelphia.

Paris Hilton Introduces More Comedy Nazis And The Hitler Dance

paris hilton nazi Paris Hilton Introduces More Comedy Nazis And The Hitler DanceTHE Daily Star leads with a picture of Paris Hilton and her “Nazi salute shame”.

This is the same paper owned by Richard Desmond who once in a meeting with the Daily Telegraph’s hierarchy, reportedly, called all Germans “Nazis”, told his executives to sing “Deutschland uber Alles” and “strutted up and down the room holding his fingers to his lips and giving stiff-armed salutes”.

Lithuania Labels Exported Food With Official Swastika – Marketing Fail

Back, then, to Hilton’s “shame”. Paris denies making the Nazi salute. She is not ordinary tourist in Berlin, pointing out something up there and wiping a finger beneath her hooter.

For starters, Hilton has been in St Tropez, which hasn’t been German for decades. And it’s all innocent.

Says her spokesman:

“Paris was dancing and having fun with her arm up in the air as she always dances like that and was scratching [her] face when a photo was taken.”

Cheryl Cole And Ashley Cole Reunite: All The Facts And Photos

Ashley Cole Cheryl 278x300 Cheryl Cole And Ashley Cole Reunite: All The Facts And Photos ASHLEY Cole has not met with malaria-infested Cheryl Cole. The NoTW’s Dan Wootton and James Desborough have “exclusive” news.

A source tells us that Ashley wants to meet Chelsy but only if she ditches Derek Hough:

“The simple fact is Cheryl doesn’t want to see Ashley. Given everything she’s been through it just wouldn’t be a good idea…

“She’s still incredibly fragile and doesn’t need that sort of potentially traumatic experience.”

The suggestion seems to be that Ashley Cole’s presence might make Cheryl feel worse and induce a set back in her recovery.

Ashley Cole is toxic!

Palestinian Music Fans Ban Bony M’s Rivers Of Babylon

Boney M Rivers Of Babylon Palestinian Music Fans Ban Bony Ms Rivers Of BabylonTO Ramallah, where Bony M are being refused the right to play one of their biggest hits. Take them away to captivity:

When the iconic 1970s disco group Boney M rocked Ramallah this week, the local music festival prevented the band from performing one of its biggest hits.

Lead singer Maizie Williams said Palestinian concert organizers told her not to sing “Rivers of Babylon.” The song’s chorus quotes from the Book of Psalms, referring to the exiled Jewish people’s yearning to return to the biblical land of Israel.

Palestinians often question the Jewish historical connection to the Holy Land. Organizers said they asked for the song to be skipped, deeming it “inappropriate.”

The Celebrity Mugshot Gallery Because You’re Not Dead Yet: Pictures

ZSA Zsa Gabor, born Sári Gábor, is in ailing health. The media loves a newly dead or ill star – almost as much it  loves them being arrested. A great time, then, to look back at her celebrity mugshot. She was once pinched for slapping a policeman. The crime earned her three days in jail and chance to be famous for something other than being married nine times and appearing in such straight-to-bucket films as A Very Brady Sequel. Gabor enjoyed the fame resulting from her arrest. And other celebs, too, arguably, have had their careers improved by a spell with the police force. In this gallery you will see mughsots of such famous drunks, tossers, druggies, accused felons and fame whores as Lindsay Lohan, Hugh Grant, Al Pacino, Jane Fonda. Nick Nolte, Gary Coleman, Mel Gibson and Snoop Dogg. You don’t need to get arrested to remind Hollywood agents that you’re still alive and newsworthy – but it might help…

Catherine Zeta Jones And Michael Douglas Do Cardiff’s Children’s Hospital: Pictures

zeta jones imogen thomas1 Catherine Zeta Jones And Michael Douglas Do Cardiffs Childrens Hospital: Pictures SO. There were Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas at the Children’s Hospital for Wales in Cardiff. All the nippers were happy to see Douglas and Whatshername. The kids are big fans.

The film star couple appealed for donations to help complete the next stage of work four years after they officially opened the hospital.

Good of them to give time and effort to promote a good cause. The grandstanding, vanity and aggrandizing are there, but if people’s lives can be helped by something as vapid as fame, then so be it. We can argue the rights and wrongs another time…

Also, Zeta Jones’ face (40) is such that she looks younger and a dead rigner for Big Brother strumpet Imogen Thomas (27). Best take care, Michael Douglas. Ask for names and proof of ID.

Cameron Diaz Brings Tom Cruise To Heel At Knight & Day Premiere: Pictures

TOM Cruise placed a ladder in his heels and stood next to Cameron Diaz at the premiere of film Knight & Day. We took pictures. For all his creepy Scientology spouting and mind-powered daughter Suri, Cruise remains the best film actor of his generation. What makes him the star is something he no doubt has asked himself. If thinks his religion or his platform shoes are the secrets to his success, then so be it. As for Diaz… Well, she wore heels…

Back in January, the paper told readers that Jolie and Pitt were going to their separate orphanages in a divorce that would see world split and heavens divided.

Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Non-Perfume’ Perfume Is Jolie Vanishing Cream: In Pictures

JENNIFER Aniston was at Harrod’s to set up a card table and launch her new signature scent, Lolavie (translation: “Why doesn’t he call?!), the “non-perfume perfume”. Aniston showed us the bottle. And it looked a lot like a perfume bottle. She posed before the sea-sprayed back and white photos. And they looked a lot like perfume ad photos. And then she squirted the stuff onto a photo of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and La Jolie vanished. One squit and she was gone! Lolavie also works on stains, bad breath and film critics…

Katie Price Gives Full Throat To Furious Essex ‘Sex Show’ – And More Facts

katie price eurovision Katie Price Gives Full Throat To Furious Essex Sex Show   And More FactsKATIE Price has been hurt by a “HATE MOB”. You can read about their “FURY” as Jordan puts on a “SEX SHOW”.

Katie is a mum-of-three. If she wants to put on a 2sex show”, then it is her right. It is a sorry pass when a British woman or man cannot put on a sex show where they want, with whom they want and where they want.

This is Katie Price’s “disastrous public appearance”, says the Star – the one that scored her another front page on the, er, Star.

To Mayhem club, Essex:

The shameless model cavorted with cage-fighter husband Alex Reid, grabbing him by the throat and simulating obscene sex acts in a packed nightclub. Security had to hold back the angry audience as they cried out “Slut!” and chanted her 37-year-old ex-husband Peter Andre’s name while trying to grab her.
