And some good advice:) : Hack Your Feelings Into Productive Energy in 6 Steps (Healthbolt.net) "A lot of people (specifically males) are trained from birth to believe that feelings are a sign of weakness. We’re always told not to let our feelings “get in the way.” I find this to be a ridiculous concept. If you take into account all the factors that can affect your health, the way you “feel” is certainly not near the bottom of that list. In fact, I’d say it was rather near the top."
Kenny Chesney denies this gossip. He said in an interview to air Sunday on CBS' 60 Minutes: "It's not true. Period. Maybe I should have come out and said, `No, I'm not (gay),' but I didn't want to draw any more attention to it..., I didn't have to prove to anybody that I wasn't. I didn't feel like I really did." Renee Zellweger and the famous country singer were married in May 2005. But four months later, Zellweger was seeking an annulment. It means: the marriage never legally existed (shit). This event has made the "gay" gossip. He's gay or not gay but this 4 months marriage is bizarre. Didn't they know each other (before marriage)? I'm sick of the "temporary" marriage of the celebrities.

It's unbelievable! I don't care for this film and I don't care for the favorite actress, but she has died!! After a week some people have an idea how to make lot's of money with this death. Money from death. It's awful. I won't watch this film.
According to the news Anna Nicole Smith had two breast enhancement after the birth of her daughter. So her sudden death could be explained by this operations, because she was reportedly very weak and tired after the operations and she got some painkillers and anti-depressants. By the opinions so many different drugs is unhealthy. Some anti-depressants can cause heart problems after surgery, and some of them can cause respiratory problems. But her doctors didn't know this fact?
