Tori Spelling Posts Video of Baby's First Moments

Tori Spelling(NEW YORK) -- After revealing her harrowing ordeal with her last pregnancy, Tori Spelling is now sharing her precious first moments with baby Finn.

Spelling posted a video of the Aug. 30 arrival of her newborn son, Finn Davey McDermott, on her website Tuesday. Clips show Finn opening his eyes for the first time and Spelling holding him after a painful C-section.

“The pregnancy with Finn was tough, and the fact that in the end we were able to bring a healthy and happy baby into this world means more to me and Dean than we can ever express,” the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star wrote on her blog about herself and husband Dean McDermott. “I’m so thrilled that we have these videos from one of the happiest days of our lives.”

But all was not happy leading up to the birth.

The reality star and mother of four recounted for Good Morning America last year how she suffered from complications that threatened her life and the baby’s.

At 20 weeks, the actress was diagnosed with placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta covers the cervix and causes internal bleeding. She was in the hospital for two and a half months, lying flat on her back, unable to care for her other young children.

“I missed Liam’s preschool graduation, and Ella’s fourth birthday party,” Spelling told GMA in December. “Hattie — when she started to crawl and her first words.”

Now Finn is a healthy 6-month-old baby, and Spelling told GMA, “I appreciate every second more with him.”

John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John Reunite in New Video

Charley Gallay/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- It may not be the reunion Grease fans have been hoping for, but Danny’s John Travolta and Sandy’s Olivia Newton-John are back together in a new video for their Christmas album.

The pair show off their singing chops and moves in the video for “I Think You Might Like It,” penned by John Farrar, the writer of “You’re the One That I Want.”

Looking quite a bit older and moving a bit slower, Travolta, 58, and Newton-John, 64, seem to channel more Urban Cowboy than Grease as they dance Western style on a runway.

In the video, Travolta arrives for their reunion at the wheel of his own private jet, while Newton-John drives up in a classic convertible.

Look closely and you can spot Travolta‘s wife, Kelly Preston, 12-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu, and 2-year-old son, Benjamin.

Travolta and Newton-John recently appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show to promote their new holiday album, This Christmas. All proceeds from its sales will go to charity.

No Doubt Apologizes to Native American Community for Video

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(LOS ANGELES) -- No Doubt has pulled its latest music video from the Internet after receiving complaints that it was insensitive towards Native Americans.

In the clip for “Looking Hot,” which was released and then yanked on Friday, singer Gwen Stefani is dressed in traditional Native American attire as part of a Wild West-type story. Bassist Tony Kanal plays a tribe chief, while guitarist Tom Dumont and drummer Adrian Young play cowboys who capture Stefani’s character. The video features other Native American imagery, like teepees.

The video provoked a storm of criticism on YouTube before it was removed, and in a statement posted Saturday on No Doubt’s website, the band apologized.

“As a multi-racial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures. Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history.  Although we consulted with Native American friends and Native American studies experts at the University of California, we realize now that we have offended people,” a statement said on the band’s website.

They concluded, “We sincerely apologize to the Native American community and anyone else offended by this video.  Being hurtful to anyone is simply not who we are.”

Chris Brown: ‘Is There Such Thing as Loving Two People?’

Chris Brown and Rihanna in 2008. Chris Polk/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Chris Brown is letting the rumors about him and ex-girlfriend Rihanna continue to swirl with a new video in which the R&B star talks about loving two women. Could he mean anyone but Rihanna and his most recent ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran?

In the video, titled “The Real Chris Brown,” the singer appears to be on his way home from a club. He warns fans that he is drunk but wants to “be honest.”  The video also shows shots of Brown, 23, and Rihanna, 24, dancing in a club.

“When you share history with somebody then you tend to fall in love with somebody else, it’s kind of difficult,” he says in the video. “Is there such thing as loving two people? I don’t know. I don’t know if that’s possible but for me, I feel like that.”

He added that he doesn’t want to “hurt either” and that he’s “not trying to be a player.”


The video was posted hours after Brown announced he had officially split with Tran, who he had been dating for several months.

Three hours after the video was online Tran tweeted, “All I’m saying is.. You don’t mess with people’s genuine feelings. You just don’t!”

“Life moves on. ... So let’s all,” she added.

Rihanna also had a cryptic tweet Thursday evening, saying, “Ain’t nobody bidness … But mine and my baby!”

Brown and Rihanna have been spotted together in New York recently, and they exchanged what appeared to be a kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards in September.

Video Shows Lindsay Lohan’s Alleged Hit-and-Run

Stefania D'Alessandro/Getty Images for amfAR(NEW YORK) -- Did Lindsay Lohan really hit an innocent bystander with a Porsche in NYC on Wednesday morning? Security camera footage of the actress’ alleged hit-and-run doesn’t show Lohan actually … hitting anyone.

Lohan’s publicist has said the furor over the actress’ alleged Wednesday morning hit-and-run is “much ado about nothing” and the charge against her “will be cleared up in the coming weeks.”

“While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing,” Steve Honig said in an email to ABC News. “We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue.”

Lohan was arrested early Wednesday after a “low speed crash” in which she allegedly struck a man with her Porsche, according to the NYPD. Cops said the 26-year-old actress was parking a 2010 Porsche Cayenne at 1 a.m. in an alley crowded with people outside the Dream Hotel when she struck a man.

The man, who the NYPD said is in his 30s, complained of being struck and was taken to Bellevue Hospital for a knee injury.

After the incident, Lohan entered a club adjacent to the Dream Hotel. Police arrived at the scene and arrested Lohan at 2:30 a.m. She was charged for leaving the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor.

Lohan was taken to New York’s 10th Precinct and issued a desk appearance ticket. She was released pending a later court date.

Police said there is no suspicion that any alcohol was involved in the incident.

Two men who were in the vehicle with her at the time were not charged.  The Porsche Lohan was driving is not registered to her, according to cops.

The problem-prone star is on informal probation for her 2011 necklace theft case until May 2014. Her only requirement, a judge said at a May court hearing, is to obey all laws. The judge added that if Lohan broke any laws, she could face a jail sentence of up to 245 days.

Lemony Snicket and Lauren Conrad in Bizarre Celebrity Book Fight

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Children’s book author Lemony Snicket released a sneering statement Friday aimed at Lauren Conrad, the former MTV star of The Hills and Laguna Beach, based on a video she created showing how to cut up Snicket’s books for home decorations.

The dust-up between Snicket and L.C. began Thursday, when she released a video demonstrating how to use book covers in order to make decorative storage boxes. She chose Snicket’s well-known children’s book series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, to use for the decorations.

In the “Crafty Creations” video, Conrad slices the covers and bindings off Snicket’s books, and then glues the covers to a box to create a storage unit. She discards the pages.

After the video sparked scorn from book-lovers around the Internet, Conrad pulled the video from her website.

In response, Snicket -- the pen name for Daniel Handler -- released a statement to ABC News calling Conrad a “lost soul.”

“It has always been my belief that people who spend too much time with my work end up as lost souls, drained of reason, who lead lives of raving emptiness and occasional lunatic violence. What a relief it is to see this documented,” the statement read.

Conrad’s reps declined to comment.

VIDEO: Sofia Vergara’s Epic Engagement

ABC/BOB D'AMICO(LOS ANGELES) -- Sofia Vergara’s engagement was quite the affair. Vergara’s son, Manolo Gonzalez, uploaded a video Wednesday recapping the Modern Family star’s epic 40th birthday weekend in Mexico that featured her longtime boyfriend, Nick Loeb, popping the question.

Gonzalez, 19, chronicled the craziness that ensues when “107 of your family and friends” try to navigate the Mayan ruins in Chichen Itza. One of those friends included Vergara’s Modern Family co-star, Julie Bowen.

Vergara’s family obtained special access so the actress could climb to the top of the ancient pyramid.

“Once they went to the top,” Gonzalez says, “my mother’s longtime boyfriend proposed.”

Vergara’s reps have yet to confirm the engagement.

On their way down, the couple ran into authorities who questioned why they jumped the ropes to get to the top. One suggested Vergara “surrender.” She laughed it off.

“It would’ve been funny, sad, but hilarious, if she had gone to a Mexican prison,” Gonzalez says.

Cut to the party, which is a post -pyramid lunch to celebrate the engagement. Vergara sways, sips, and shows off her ring finger Beyonce-style. Gonzalez says he’s looking forward to his mom turning 50.

“Who knows where we’ll go?,” he says. “I’m thinking Cleveland.”

Madonna Angers French Fans with 45-Minute Show

Dave J Hogan/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Hell hath no fury like a French Madonna fan.  An intimate Thursday night show at Paris' Olympia club ended with angry fans booing and chanting insults when Madonna left the stage after just 45 minutes.

The show, streamed live on YouTube, was billed as a celebration of tolerance and diversity, announced in the wake of the ongoing controversy over Madonna showing images at a Bastille Day concert of far-right National Front party leader Marie Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead.  Fan videos posted on the video channel after the Thursday night event show concert-goers booing Madonna and chanting what sounds like "salope," which depending on the context can mean "b***h" or "slut."

As of Friday morning, the 'likes' on the concert's YouTube channel were just under 11,000, while the 'dislikes' were 13,123.  On Twitter, angry tweets about Madonna -- many of them in French -- continued to arrive by the second.

The Olympia concert will be re-broadcast on YouTube hourly until midnight GMT (7:00 p.m. U.S. ET).
