Kris Humphries sued for allegedly giving woman herpes

HollywoodNews.com: Kris Humphries has more issues to deal with than just his divorce with Kim Kardashian as he is being sued by a woman who claims he gave her herpes.
Kayla Goldberg has filed a lawsuit claiming that she hooked up with the basketball player in August 2010 when he exposed her to herpes without letting her know, states TMZ. She claims she met him out in Los Angeles one day and then partied with him later that night.
The two allegedly had sex multiple times – including oral – for which some of the time Kris did not wear a condom.
She apparently found out a week later that she had herpes which she believes came from him. She is now suing for sexual battery and unspecified damages as she believes he knew he had the disease but didn’t tell her.

Bethenny Frankel shares her key diet tips

HollywoodNews.com: Bethenny Frankel is always happy to give her fans a few tips, and now she is revealing some more key diet tips to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Frankel recently commented that her trick to enjoying eating healthy is mixing it up and keeping it fresh, states UsMagazine.com. “It’s different every single day. That’s the key to being naturally thin — not being so regimented,” Frankel revealed.
Plus, she also thinks there is an appropriate way to indulge and have the food you want: “If you have something in the morning that is not ideal then have something at lunch that is more ideal. It’s a better investment, and you balance it throughout the day so you end up having everything you want — just not all at once.”

Lenny Kravitz Does Some Good!

HollywoodNews.com: Lenny Kravitz – GRAMMY award-winning singer-songwriter, record producer and actor—is using his voice and talent to do more than dazzle the stage and screen. He is throwing his support behind the global push by UNICEF and its partners to help save and improve the lives of millions of children and their families around the world by providing them with access to clean water and adequate sanitation.
“I was born in New York City and have always taken access to clean water as a given,” said Kravitz. “No child should die of diarrhea from drinking dirty water. That thousands of children under the age of five continue to die every day because they lack clean water and basic sanitation is simply unacceptable.”
Earlier today UNICEF announced that the world has met the Millennium Development Goal for drinking water, with 89 percent of the global population now with access. However, that still leaves more than 780 million people, mainly in Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, without access. In addition, around 2.5 billion people—almost half the developing world’s population—lack access to improved sanitation. This all adds up to bad news for the children who are being left behind.
Kravitz will be appearing in Public Service Announcements and take to Twitter and Facebook with a message that all children can—and must—have access to clean water and adequate sanitation. Kravitz, who recently released the album ‘Black and White America’, and who will be starring in ‘The Hunger Games’ later this month, is joining forces with UNICEF to help mark World Water Day (March 22) and will send a global message of the importance of investing in children and providing them with clean water and sanitation.
In the United States, Kravitz will be lending his support for the UNICEF Tap Project by encouraging his fans and dining patrons across the country to pay $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free during World Water Week, March 19 – 25. With $1, UNICEF can provide a child with access to clean, safe water for 40 days, or 40 children with access to safe water for one day. Funds raised through the 2012 UNICEF Tap Project will provide children and families with clean drinking water in Viet Nam, Togo, Mauritania and Cameroon.
Poor sanitation, water and hygiene have serious repercussions on a child’s health, often causing diarrhea and other easily preventable diseases. Children, particularly [...]

Bethenny Frankel on her recent health issues

HollywoodNews.com: Bethenny Frankel sadly suffered a miscarriage not too long ago, but it seems that tragedy also resulted in her suffering another scary health issue.
Frankel recently opened up to Andy Cohen about how medicine she took after the miscarriage caused her to face a new health crisis that did some serious damage, states UsMagazine.com. “As a result of that experience [miscarriage], I was on an antibiotic Doxycycline. I took it at night without any water, went to bed and it burned a hole in my esophagus,” Frankel revealed.
But while the miscarriage is still difficult, she is recovering from the burn: “I’m feeling good. I wouldn’t be drinking a Skinnygirl Margarita if I weren’t feeling good.”

Awards Time Means Diet and Workout Time in Hollywood

By Beck/Smith
HollywoodNews.com:The first week of January brings together two opposing forces in Tinsel Town: the excess poundage of post-holiday time – and the need to look svelte as Awards Season goes into full swing. We’ve got the People’s Choice Awards Jan. 11th, The Golden Globes on the 15th, the Screen Actors Guild Awards the 29th – the list goes on and on. To prepare, notables and not-so-knowns all over town are dieting and exercising like mad. Sometimes, unfortunately, in certifiably unhealthy ways.
Beyonce, Demi Moore, Paris Hilton, Billy Bob Thornton and Howard Stern sidekick Robyn Quivers are among the many names who’ve been associated with the Master Cleanse diet. In fact, Quivers claimed to have lost 70 pounds on the seven-decade-old plan after dozens of failed diets. Instead of food, followers chug a concoction of fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water – for weeks on end.
“I’ve never felt this good about my body before,” said Quivers, after fasting for 21 consecutive days on three occasions. She was introduced to the idea by magician David Blaine, who raved about the Cleanser as a guest on Stern’s show.
Doctors warn, however, that extended fasting can lead to dehydration, electrolyte imbalance and worse.
Low carb diets, whether Atkins, South Beach, or Hamptons, remain popular with actors and actresses. Stars who’ve been associated with low carb regimens include Sarah Jessica Parker, Reneé Zellweger, Matt LeBlanc, Whoopi Goldberg and Jennifer Aniston. Taken to extremes, however, they, too, can have negative side affects. According to the American Heart Association, these kinds of quick-fix diets leave out vital vitamins and minerals, may be high in fat and can increase the risk of heart disease. And they don’t lead to sustained, long-term weight loss.
Of course, punishing workouts continue to be a favored means of getting red carpet ready. Many spend hours on end working with trainers who charge $100 an hour, some even $300 an hour. Others do things their own way. “Top Chef’s” Padma Lakshmi said she lost weight by running up and down 70 flights of stairs, plus weight lifting and walking. Usher has said he does 1,000 crunches a day to maintain his abs, in addition to watching his carb intake. [...]
