Celeb News: Are the Commando and Michelle Bridges back together?


1. Are the Commando and Michelle Bridges back together?

They were on, they were off and now they are back on again.

Yes, Michelle Bridges and Steve “Commando” Willis have rekindled their on-again off-again romance just three months after they called it quits.

The pair, who became official in May, separated in August, when the Commando decided to move back in with his wife Froso and their two children. But now according to the Sunday Telegraph The Biggest Loser hosts are ‘giving it another crack’, with Willis leaving his wife again to get back together with Michelle, who split with her husband of 9 years earlier this year.

According to a friend the pair “have a really strong connection – Steve tried to be with his family but he and Michelle are back together trying to make it work.”


2. Christian Grey has pulled out. But not in the way you think

Charlie Hunnam, the actor cast to play Christian Grey in the upcoming adaptation of E.L James’ bestseller 50 Shades of Grey has pulled out of the lead role, leaving women everywhere feeling well, a little grey. The Sons of Anarchy star and Universal Pictures released a statement yesterday confirming that Hunnam would no longer play Christian Grey due to ‘timing issues’ because of his television commitments.

Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffiths (and stepdaughter of Antonio Banderas) will still play Anastasia Steele in the film set for release in August 2014, however a replacement for Hunnam has not yet been named.

Now for the question on everyones mind, who will play Christian? We can only speculate…


3. Michael Douglas says that he lied about cancer. 

Before hitting the road to promote his 2010 film Money Never Sleeps, Douglas revealed that he had throat cancer. Earlier this year Douglas implied that it was as a result of performing oral sex on women – although his spokespeople later said that his comments had been taken out of context.

But now the 69-year-old veteran actor has revealed that he actually has tongue cancer.

According to Douglas, he kept this from the media because fighting tongue cancer often involves significant surgery to face, and he didn’t want to be drawn into discussions about that possibility while on tour.

Douglas has revealed that at the time, “The surgeon said, ‘Let’s just say it’s throat cancer.’ I said, ‘OK, you don’t want to say it’s tongue cancer?’ I said, ‘Why’s that?'”

“And he said, ‘Well, if you really want to know why, if we do have to have surgery, it’s not going to be pretty. You’ll lose part of your jaw and your tongue and all of that stuff.’ So I said, ‘OK, sure.'”
