Brooke Shields, Jim Belushi in 'plane crash'



Tbd-brookeshields100709 TMZ is trumpeting news that Brooke Shields and Jim Belushi were in a plane crash last Friday at Hearst Castle, but in a perfect illustration of how gossip news gets blown out of proportion, we'd like to point out that it's  not like the plane fell out of the air. No, it's more like the pilot forgot to set the parking brake.

The site says the two actors were being flown to the San Simeon, Calif., landmark for an event and their Cessna landed safely. Unfortunately, the pilot didn't set the brake and the prop plane rolled into a Buick SUV while the talent was getting out. The wing damaged the vehicle, but no one was injured.

This is labeled a "celebrity news event" by TMZ, but really, we've got to roll our eyes about this one. Next week: The heel on Mira Sorvino's shoe breaks! What will she do, go to the cobbler or buy a new pair?!?
