Michael Douglas’ son Cameron was reportedly roughed up in prison, according to the New York Post.
The 34-year-old is doing hard time in Pennsylvania for drug possession and distribution — but that didn’t stop him from allowing his lawyer to smuggle heroin and a prescription narcotic into the jail in her bra last year, which added an extra four years to his five-year sentence. Now his finger and leg have allegedly been broken on the orders of the mobsters whom he reportedly snitched on to get a lighter sentence.
Michael Douglas is “furious” about the medical care his son has received, alleging that the doctor didn’t notice that his femur was broken, calling it a sprain instead, which resulted in a dangerous blood clot.
Cameron Douglas seems to be making the best of the situation, though. An “insider” told the Post that he has “gone gangster” in prison, complete with neck tattoos, pumping iron and, um, playing in flag football tournaments.

Are Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr on the outs after her long nights with Leo DiCaprio?

Why has Orlando Bloom’s supermodel wife, Miranda Kerr, been spotted without her wedding ring? Could it be because Kerr spent a lot of time snuggling up to Leonardo DiCaprio recently? Or that the couple have allegedly “grown apart” since the birth of their son two years ago?
Bloom’s mom tells the Daily Mail that rumors of a rocky relationship are hogwash and that the two are “very happy.” Still, In Touch magazine claims the pair are indeed “taking a break.”
Does the Victoria’s Secret model have a secret of her own?

Too Short’s Hanukkah rap

Oakland’s own Too Short has apparently gone from rappin’ about smokin’ that glass pipe to spinnin’ that wooden dreidel.

Seriously.

This has to be the funniest thing we’ve heard in a long time. The hip-hop legend claims he noticed a dearth of Hanukkah songs out there and he aimed to make things right.  The song is untitled, but “Invasion of the Flat-Booty Bubbies” has a nice ring to it.</p>

Some highlights:

“I’m fryin’ latkes, I’m makin’ a mess with some Jewish girls, pinchin’ tuchus.”

“This ain’t Rosh Hashana, this ain’t Passover / It’s Hanukkah, baby, now move that ass over.”

And you thought the Beastie Boys had the lock on Jewish hip-hop. The video can be seen on TMZ’s website and others.
