Mike Tyson's four-year-old daughter is on a life suppo

Mike Tyson's four-year-old daughter is on a life support machine after being found with a cable from an exercise treadmill wrapped around her neck.

Exodus was found by her seven-year-old brother at their home in Phoenix, Arizona.

The boy told the girl's mother, who was in another room. She helped Exodus out of the cable, called 911 and tried to revive her.

She was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was in "extremely critical condition" and on life support, a police spokesman said.

"Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there's a cord that hangs under the console - it's kind of a loop," he explained.

"Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it."

Former heavyweight boxing champion Tyson who was in Las Vegas promoting a new movie flew to Phoenix as soon as he heard about the accident.

According to local media he arrived at St Jospeh's Hospital in a taxi and raced inside without comment.

Ashley Tisdale Hiv Rumors

Ashley Tisdale HIV - A rumor about High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale having HIV, or even worse AIDS, began making the rounds online recently

Here’s the totally slanderous rumor about Ashley Tisdale having HIV or AIDS:
Los Angeles - American actress and singer Ashley Tisdale, known for her role as Sharpay Evans in the movie High School Musical, has been diagnosed with HIV at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.While details are still sketchy at this time, a spokesman for the hospital said, “Ashley and her family are trying to come to terms with this horrible development. They only ask that you pray for Ashley’s health and to please respect their privacy as the family decides on the next course of action.”An inside source stated that Ashley may have contracted the virus last year when she underwent a rhinoplasty procedure on November 30, 2007. 
According to Tisdale, this was done for health-related reasons and not out of a belief in plastic surgery; her “septum was 80 percent deviated” and she had “two small fractures on [her] nose”, and this was interfering with her breathing. She spoke to People magazine about the surgery, saying that it was important to her to be honest with her fans.While the rhinoplasty procedure doesn’t involve a blood transfusion, the equipment used could have been contaminated. The source stated that Ashley had not been feeling well since last November, often complaining of headaches and a series of minor colds and bacterial infections. 

All of which she worked through until she was found passed out in her kitchen three days ago.The Digg of this fake “news story” posted by “Anami Iss Los Angeles” and two others Diggs similar to it were quickly deleted as false and slanderous, but that didn’t stop the ugly rumor from spreading.

Rest assured that Ashley Tisdale does not have HIV or AIDS and is in fact happily working on High School Musical 3 and spending some quality time with her boyfriend, Jared Murillo.
Tisdale and Murillo first met while on a High School Musical touring show in 2007, where Jared was a backup dancer.22-year-old Asley recently went shopping for a special ring for Jared after he completed a 26-city nationwide tour with his group V-Factory.

Murillo, 19, has also been spending time with Ashley in Utah, where she is filming High School Musical 3: Senior Year.

Halle Berry Caught Off Guard

Halle Berry was probably not expecting to have her picture taken at this exact moment but alas, the paparazzi never sleep. Some lucky, and excessively obtrusive photog (she’s got a sick baby with her, dude) managed to snap these unflattering shots of the Oscar-winner looking just a little bit like her character from “Jungle Fever.” Poor Halle appears to have been up all night with Nahla (who’s totes adorbs, btw), proving yet again that stars (and their offspring) really are just like us.

Everyone had a great time.Many people thought that these two would not last long but let’s not lose hope just yet. After all, it’s still the first year. On the other hand, Mariah looks a bit fuller. Could this mean that she is just too happy to care too much about her appearance?

Oscar De La Hoya is hanging up the gloves

After one of the most storied careers in professional boxing, Oscar De La Hoya has finally decided to retire. Most of you probably won’t care about this but as an avid follower of the sport, this is big news to this body gossiper. The athlete-turned-entrepreneur won’t have any trouble staying busy out of the ring but still, Oscar’s emotions are understandably mixed about the big decision.

Oscar has won so many titles in so many different weight classes and has generated so many millions of dollars for himself and many others, it’s safe to say he doesn’t need to do it one more time. And the last few times he’s done it, he hasn’t be so impressive. Now De La Hoya can retire, without scrambled eggs for brains, and enjoy the rest of his very rich life with his family.
