Oksana Grigorieva Under Investigation for Blackmail

An L.A. County Coroner spokesman says Simon Monjack’s death was caused by pneumonia and anemia, the same ailments that took his wife Brittany Murphy’s life, too. Many women housed in the same jail area as Lindsay Lohan are behind bars for murder. But Lohan is reportedly calm, sleeping a lot, and trying to obtain a copy of The Old Man and the Sea. Rachel Uchitel isn’t really on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew for a pill addiction (and certainly not for celebrity) but for “emotional issues.” Detectives are investigating claims that Oksana Grigorieva tried to sell Mel Gibson the audio tapes of his terrifying rants and threatened to make them public (which they obviously now are) if he didn’t buy them.

Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert’s ex-husband, Michael Cooper, parted ways with his publisher, Hyperion, because of “eleventh-hour demands” to make his memoir of divorce (the other side of the Eat, Pray, Love’s story) racier. The book was intended to be about Cooper’s “already decades-long commitment to humanitarian relief and human rights work.” Russell Simmons and his ex Kimora Lee went to contract to sell their Saddle River, New Jersey, mansion for close to $14 million. Socialite Marjorie Gubelmann took Hills star Stephanie Pratt to The Extra Man premiere at Village East on Tuesday. Al Gore III, Al Gore’s 27-year-old son, won a boxing match at B.B. King’s this week. Ashley Olsen ate with her boyfriend Justin Bartha at the Lion. And Leonardo DiCaprio told Rolling Stone he had “better success meeting girls before Titanic,” and “there wasn’t a perception of [a girl] talking to me for only one reason.”
