The Godfather of Hip Hop partied at The Imperial Friday Night, along with Juggernaut artist/producer Swizz Beatz. They came to join DJ Bobby Trendz at his hotter than hot Friday night weekly event, which featured a live performance by another music star-Fat Joe. While it was public knowledge about the feud between Fat Joe and Jay Z, Imperial owner and club Legend Paul Drohan said, "apparently the beef is over between them I am glad to say" ...adding-"we're an art club here at The Imperial, the ultimate nurturing environment for all music and artists. I hope we helped bring two Icons back a little closer together." We later checked out Fat Joe's twitter (@JoeyCrackTS) "Shouts to JZ and Swizz for coming through to my party at Imperial!!! @ Dj Bobby Trendz-What a party homie.!!!" Also at Imperial were adult film stars from the current exxxotic convention, along with CSI star Gerald McCullough and Actor/Promoter Keith Collins as the porn stars and Fat Joe all wiggled to Jay Z's new hit- 'Empire State of Mind.' Meanwhile, the hot new Imperial, just keeps getting hotter!!

Later our roving Retna photographer Walter McBride attended the after party to get some more great photographs. Hey you have no idea how hard it is to get the stage shots. They have all the photographers all the way in the back of the theatre in a almost impossible location, and the professional Walter is, he got the shots. Other celebrities shot were Ellen Barkin, Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew Broderick, Jeff Goldblum, Stephanie March, Liev Schreiber And Naomi Watts, John Crowley, and many more.

JON GOSSELIN SLOWS DOWN HIS DIVORCE

Jon Gosselin


Jon Gosselin is trying to slow down his divorce from estranged wife Kate Gosselin, telling In Touch Weekly magazine: "I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated, I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon." John has filed papers hoping to stall the divorce for 90 days "to regain control over the future of our family." TLC has also announced that 'Jon & Kate Plus Eight' will now be titled 'Kate Plus Eight,' and Jon's role will be minimized. Gosselin's lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, tells In Touch that his client "woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and didn't like the reflection." John also told, In Touch it will "enable Kate and me to restore our relationship as cooperative parents and to open up our lines of communication. I hope that she will be as receptive and enthusiastic as I am to do what is best for our family." Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That's why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family -- not destroy it,". The news comes as TLC has announced that the reality show is being renamed to 'Kate Plus Eight'. Jon will still be on the show, only not so much anymore. The renamed "Kate Plus Eight," will begin Nov. 2nd, and will continue to chronicle the lives of the Gosselin kids (5-year-old sextuplets and 8-year-old twins) but will also focus on Kate's role as a single mother. "It's not a huge shift, but it's reflective of where the show was already going," said Eileen O'Neill, TLC's president and general manager. "Jon's going to be involved in the show," she said, adding that he will be seen less often than before. TLC retains an exclusive arrangement with him, as well as the rest of the family, O'Neill said. The rupture came after weeks of tabloid reports of marital strains and infidelities, which both have denied.

Johnny Depp


The head movie bosses are slamming gossip that Johnny Depp will jump ship. The award winning star isn’t quitting Pirates Of The Caribbean. Johnny ignited rumors that he’ll be replaced in his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in future instalments after telling the Los Angeles California Times his enthusiasm for the movies had declined following the departure of Disney chairman Dick Cook, who recruited the star for the hit franchise films. He said, "There’s a fissure, a crack in my enthusiasm (for the project) at the moment. It was all born in that office. But a spokesperson for Disney insists Depp has not backed out of the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, branding the rumors "completely unfounded". The picture is expected sometime in 2011.

HAYLEY HASSELHOFF SAYS MOM OVER REACTED

Hayley Hasselhoff


Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff's daughter is claiming her father’s recent trip to the hospital, following an alleged booze binge, was a drama over nothing. Hayley Hasselhoff says her mother, the actor’s ex-wife Pamela Bach, called for an ambulance to cause more drama. David was taken to hospital on September 20th, amid allegations the actor was suffering from alcohol poisoning. Hasselhoff’s wife Pamela Bach told reporters she had received a call from the couples daughter, Hayley, who claimed she had discovered her father in an "extremely drunk" state.
A pal of Bach’s then rang for an ambulance to rush to the scene. However, calls made between Hayley and a 911 dispatcher, obtained by TMZ.com, reveal the 16 year old urged the ambulance to be sent back to the hospital, insisting her mother was behind the claims. In the call, Hayley states, "Turn around… we’re completely fine. My mom is trying to cause something… nothing happened here at all." Hasselhoff’s rep later played down the incident, blaming his latest health scare on a bad reaction to a drug he had been prescribed to treat an ear infection.
