A 56-year-old homeless man faces the grim possibility of staying in jail for the rest of his life after he tried to rob the house of Hollywood actor LL Cool J.
The police formally filed a case for first-degree burglary with a person present against Jonathan Kirby for trying to rob the house of the actor in Los Angeles, California. If convicted, Kirby faces a maximum of 38 years to life in prison.
A bail of $1.1 million has been set. According to reports, the suspect remains at a local hospital because of his broken nose, jaw, and ribs, results of his fight with the NCIS: Los Angeles actor.
LL Cool J successfully fought and detained the burglar in his kitchen last Wednesday morning. Sources say the actor will not face criminal charges for knocking down the suspect, since what he did was a form of self-defense.
We know LL Cool J is very happy about the developments in the case.
Looks like the Pretty Little Liars have finally found “A”!
Okay, maybe not, but they and Rosewood (the fictional place in the show) are set to welcome Adam Lambert later in the show’s season. ABC Family confirms that the fan-fave American Idol alum is set to appear on the show’s Halloween episode, to air sometime in October. Marlene King, the executive producer of Pretty Little Liars, said:
When we heard Adam was a fan of the show, we knew that he would be a perfect fit for our Halloween episode. He’s oh so Rosewood!
The singer, who will be appearing as himself, will meet the Liars when he performs at a pumpkin-themed party that they will attend. Adam revealed the news to his fans via Twitter, saying:
Yup— imma be a Pretty Little Liar!
Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily in the show, replied to Lambert’s tweet:
Welcome to Rosewood!
Lambert reportedly will be singing two songs in the show. Both are from his new album, Tresspassing, which is out in stores now.
Pretty Little Liars fans are surely excited about this new “A”!
Awkward, a teen-oriented TV series on MTV is set to be up and running for a third season! Not only that, but the network is also planning to make today’s teen’s lives a lot “Awkward-er” by upping the show’s episodes for the season.
MTV has already ordered a 20-episode third season of the said show, which almost doubles the episodes of its first and second seasons. Sounds like more comedy for the show’s avid watchers! David Janollari, the head of MTV programming, released a statement about this:
Creator Lauren Iungerich’s creative vision, coupled with this extraordinarily talented cast, make Awkward the perfect series for MTV. Critics and our audience alike have fallen in love with Awkward, and we’re thrilled to bring this terrific series back for a third, supersized season.
The show’s second season, which premiered in the last week of June, already has an average of 1.8 million viewers, 6 percent higher than that of Season One.
Looks like we’ll have a little country goin’ on in American Idol’s 12th season!
Just days after Mariah Carey officially took her rightful place at the judges’ panel of FOX’s hit competition, a website reports that the show is asking country singer Brad Paisley to join her. According to the said site, now that they’ve found someone to succeed Jennifer Lopez as a female judge, American Idol is now focusing on finding a male judge to replace Steven Tyler. They say that the show is seeing a strong potential in Paisley.
Also for the next season, the show is reportedly playing with the idea of having a four-person panel, leveling with its rival competition, X Factor. Regarding original judge Randy Jackson, sources say that he might transition into a new role as a mentor to the future contestants, now that Mariah Carey, whom he manages, is going to be a judge.
Paisley has already been involved with the show, having recorded the song “Remind Me” with Idol’s very successful country singer/winner, Carrie Underwood. He also toured with season 10 champion Scotty McCreery.
Sounds like an exciting season 12 for A.I., don’t you think?
