Simoncelli dead after Malaysian MotoGP crash

Italian rider Marco Simoncelli has died after a horrific crash at the Malaysian MotoGP in Sepang. The race was stopped on lap two when Simoncelli's bike veered across the track at turn 11 into the path of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.

The 24-year-old had his helmet knocked off and was hit by both other riders. American rider Edwards also fell and dislocated his shoulder - while Simoncelli's fellow Italian Rossi was able to return to the pits.

Simoncelli lay motionless on the track after the impact, while the race was immediately red-flagged.

Medical director Michele Macchiagodena said Simoncelli suffered a "very serious trauma to the head, to the neck and the chest".

Lake Bell, Topless in HBO's How to Make It in America (Watch Video)

Lake Bell provides some of the sexual tension in HBO’s series “How to Make it in America.” The 32-year-old actress is topless in a scene from the current episode, which tracks the lives of two New Yorkers trying to make it in fashion.

The show is executive produced by Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Rob Weiss and Julian Farino, the crew who created the highly successful HBO series “Entourage.”

“Made in America” is supposed to be and “Entourage”-like show set in New York’s glitzy fashion industry. But after its debut season last year, it received mixed reviews from critics.

We often get to see hints and peeks of the amazingly sexy body of Lake Bell, but it's a fine fine day in Hottieville when we get to see Lake stripped down, all kinds of topless and just downright looking amazing on this past evening's episode of HBO's How to Make It In America.

Lindsay Lohan's Teeth - Dental Damage

Lindsay Lohan's father thinks she is smoking methamphetamine or crack cocaine.

Lindsay Lohan, the troubled actress - whose probation was revoked in a Los Angeles court yesterday (19.10.11) - was pictured last week with badly stained and damaged teeth and her dad Michael believes the damage stems from her smoking the illegal substances.

He told 'Issues' host Jane Velez-Mitchell: "That's from smoking a pipe with meth or crack. She's smoking either crack or meth, one or the other. I'm not going to shade it.

"If you're talking about prescription medication it would affect all your teeth, not just your two front teeth. You can't dance with the devil and expect to go home with Jesus."

Michael - who has a strained relationship with the actress and her mother Dina - has called for the court to force Lindsay to be tested for drugs and wants a sober coach appointed to ensure she stays on the right path.

Referring to yesterday's court hearing in Los Angeles at which Lindsay was cuffed and taken into custody after her probation was revoked, he told "I hate seeing my daughter in cuffs. She belongs in rehab! Why don't they institute drug testing? Get drug testing involved! Keep her straight! Make sure she's in an outpatient programme.

"They need to put a sober coach with her! A no nonsense sober coach! I'm sick of this, when she wants to be honest with herself and live up to her responsibility she'll turn her life around. But she has learned too much of the opposite from her mother."

The showbiz patriarch also wants all negative influences to be made to stay away from his daughter - who has been released from custody after her $100,000 bail was posted.

He said: "My mission is to get rid of all the people in her life that are kicking her down. I'm going to eliminate them from her life. I'm going to do all I can … not physically but I'm going to put them in a position where they can't be around her."

Julianne Hough, Battling Acne

Julianne Hough: Battling Acne Was ‘Horrible’
She’s the fresh-faced beauty of Footloose and Dancing with the Stars, but Julianne Hough wasn’t always so comfortable in her own skin. The Proactiv spokeswoman tells the Beauty Bean that dealing with acne while rising to fame was “horrible.”

“You try to tell yourself that you’re fine and it’s all good — and you really should be fine — but it definitely affects you,” she shares. “You want to do what you can to make you feel good.”

Now pimple-free, the dancer-singer-actress says she feels most beautiful when she’s around her family and friends. “There’s just a certain glow you have when you’re with your loved ones,” she explains. Though getting prettified can be fun, too. “I love to get glammed up and feel that my hair looks great, and my skin looks good and when my legs are shaved and I’m wearing high heels,” she admits.

A seasoned pro at hair and makeup, the starlet says she’d tell her younger self to cut back on the eye shadows and lipsticks. “Less is always more,” she proclaims. “Don’t try to be too matchy-matchy — I was always matchy-matchy.”

So these days, Hough says she turns to “women who are so comfortable in their skin” and don’t wear a lot of makeup — like Julia Roberts — for beauty inspiration. “You can just see how happy and fresh and beautiful they are from within,” she explains.

And she finds that feeling gorgeous is internal for her, as well. “I think that how you were raised, no matter what size, what color hair, anything — it comes from within and if you’re confident on the outside and have a great personality and really love who you are internally, then that’s what’s beautiful.”

Dan Wheldon crash

Dan Wheldon crash: IndyCar revises team members in probe
The Izod IndyCar Series on Wednesday revised its information about the team investigating the death of driver Dan Wheldon from injuries in a 15-car crash at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The series initially said Tuesday that the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the governing body for Formula One racing, and the Automobile Competition Committee of the United States, an umbrella organization of racing sanctioning bodies, would assist in its probe of Sunday's accident.

But "it was incorrect to state that either ACCUS or FIA are formally involved," IndyCar said without explanation in a revised statement. It added, however, that "individual members of various motorsports bodies" would help in the investigation.

IndyCar reiterated that it hoped to report preliminary findings about the crash "within the next several weeks."

A public memorial for Wheldon, who was 33 and a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner, is scheduled Sunday in Indianapolis.
