Busey's sorry, Busta's slapped, Minghella's gone and Halle Berry's baby has a name
• Gary Busey has apologized for oozing all over Jennifer Garner on the Oscars red carpet last month, saying, “I meant no disrespect to Ms. Jennifer Garner when I met her at the Oscars and apologize if I made her uncomfortable,” the AP reports. Good thing, too, because Ben Affleck was this close to maybe thinking about saying something.
• Busta Rhymes was sentenced to three years’ probation Tuesday for beating up his former driver and a fan, plus 10 days of community service, a $1,250 fine and court costs, and enroll in a DUI program, the AP says. Good thing, too, because the criminal justice system was this close to maybe thinking about working for once.
• And on a sad note, Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella (above) died Tuesday of a hemorrhage following surgery in London. He was 54. That’s a bad thing, because we were maybe thinking Hollywood would make more good movies like The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain.
• Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have decided to name their daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry, an Arabic-based name that means “drink of water,” Reuters says. That should slake your gossip thirst.
