We caught up with actress and now filmmaker Sherilyn Fenn, who's in Pittsburgh working on a documentary about an LA-based child enrichment program that's coming to the 'Burgh.

The "Twin Peaks" star just finished filming "Dukes of Hazzard: The Early Years" two weeks ago. She plays Lulu Hogg, wife of the notorious Boss Hogg.

"I never watched it myself, to be honest with you," Sherilyn said of the television series on which the movies are based.

But she had worked with the film's director, Robert Berlinger, and wanted to do so again. "It's just a fun silly role," she said of her obviously much-slimmer version of Lulu.


Speaking of Pittsburgh, hometown girl Christina Aguilera graces the cover of the latest "Billboard" magazine and is in London promoting her new CD, "Back to Basics," which drops Aug. 15.

The petite blonde with the big voice apparently wowed the crowd at London's Koko Club with her 40-minute set, according to TMZ.com.


OK, let's get out of the 'Burgh and fly over to L.A., where Colin Farrell was confronted by some looney woman while taping "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

Colin, making the rounds to promote his latest flick, "Miami Vice," stayed cool and calm. The woman walked up to him and said something. Then he led her offstage by the elbow and called for security, according to a witness interviewed by the AP.

Access Hollywood identified the woman as Dessarae Bradford, who reportedly filed an unsuccessful small claims lawsuit against the Irish hunk.

"People" reports that Colin attended the world premiere of "Miami Vice" later that evening and said everything was good.

He posed for photos with his mom, co-star Jamie Foxx and director Michael Mann, according to People magazine.


Actress Rosario Dawson brought her sizzle to the Comic-Con convention in San Diego. She was there to promote her comic-book series, "The Occult Crimes Taskforce."

But the 27-year-old is not giving up her day job. She's in "Clerks II" and is set to begin shooting "Sin City 2" next year, according to People.


Don't worry, be happy. Haley Joel Osment, who was hospitalized after being in a car accident Thursday, is expected to go home Friday.

And no, we're not even going to give in to the temptation to say anything about seeing dead people.


Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst announces on his MySpace page that he's walking down the aisle with a lovely young woman named Krista Salvatore.

Fred, 35, met the 21-year-old Providence, R.I. resident in May while he was there directing and starring in the feature "The Education of Charlie Banks."

The singer/filmmaker has a daughter from his first marriage and a son from a previous relationship.

We're not the betting kind, but we give it a month if it happens at all. Remember, that's not a wager, just a prediction.
