Bret Michaels is out of hospital
Bret Michaels' miraculous recovery from a brain hemorrhage continues, with his doctor announcing that he has left a hospital, TMZ reports. He'll be back to shooting Rock of Love again before you know it! Dr. Joseph Zabramski says the Poison frontman is "very lucky to be getting better so soon." He said Michaels was recently released from St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix. That jibes with Bret's sister Michelle's account, since she told the Todd N Tyler Radio Empire show he was in pain, but was "definitely doing better and he was starting to walk a little bit" when she saw him on Saturday. She added that his speech is no longer slurred, but it's quite an unpleasant experience: "What's happened is all that blood in his brain is starting to drain and he's starting to have a lot of back pain. … I can hear it in his voice, I know he's in a lot of pain."

Haim died of natural causes
Actor Corey Haim died from pneumonia complicated by an enlarged heart and narrowed blood vessels, while drugs found in his system played no role in his death, the Los Angeles County coroner said Tuesday. Low levels of eight drugs, including both prescription and over-the-counter medications, were found in his system along with marijuana, coroner's spokesman Craig Harvey said. "But nothing was at a level that would have contributed to his death," Harvey said. The 38-year-old Haim, who had struggled with drug problems throughout his life, died March 10 after collapsing in his mother's apartment. He was ill with flu symptoms before his death, and police said he was taking over-the-counter and prescription medications.
Letterman's foe gets six-month sentence
Robert "Joe" Halderman, the 52-year-old former CBS TV producer who tried to extort $2 million out of David Letterman, was sentenced to six months in the lockup Tuesday. Halderman was silent as he shuffled out of a Manhattan courtroom, the AP reports. When he gets out of jail, he'll still have to serve 1,000 hours of community service for pleading guilty to grand larceny. In case you forgot, Halderman had tried to get Letterman to pay him in order to keep quiet about Dave's past dalliances with Robert's ex-girlfriend.
