Hey pop...Tupac was shot in 1994, but he didn't die then. He died on Sept. 13, 1996. Just setting the dates straight! ;)

RIP Anthony Minghella. Congrats to Punky & her hubby. :ROTFL: at Will Smith-he really doesn't want people to think of him as the face of scientology- I wonder if he's scared Tom is going to come after him?

birkhead and HKS need to stop bashing daniel smith, he's dead and he can't defend himself. it really makes me mad they are getting money and attention out of his and anna nicole's deaths.

that's so sad about the director - that's such a shame! as for the will smith story - knew that something was going to come of it after they had dinner with the cruises...oh well. i hope that it dies down - they are all such nice people and it seems like the press just makes way too much out of a friendship between couples who have strong feelings about things.

The English Patient and The Talented Mr. Ripley are two of my favorite 1990s movies. RIP Mr. Minghella, you were truly a great talent. :(

i heard about anthony minghella, that's just so sad. may his talented soul rest to peace....and may his attractive-looking son find comfort from me. okay that was tactful and not needed, but anthony minghella contributed to creating a beautiful son...probably one of his greatest achievement. okay i'm just going to stop.

Larry Birkhead is changing all of his stories now. It's sad too, because he dogged Anna so bad telling the cops she gave her son drugs, now he's saying it's not true. I hope KARMA comes back to haunt him.
