  • Aflac dumps duck voice actor for tasteless tweets

    COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — Aflac Inc. said Monday it has fired Gilbert Gottfried, the abrasive voice of the insurer's quacking duck in the U.S., after the comedian posted a string of mocking jokes about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on Twitter over the weekend.

    The tasteless tweets are particularly problematic for Aflac because it does 75 percent of its business in Japan. One in four homes in Japan buys health insurance from Aflac. The insurer's CEO, Daniel Amos, flew to Japan on Sunday to show support for the company's employees and agents.

    LOS ANGELES — While CBS is keeping mum about Charlie Sheen, one of his co-stars has been speaking out and sharing kind words about the embattled actor.
    “Two and a Half Men” star Holland Taylor defended the actor she has worked with since the show began in 2003.
    “Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his cast mates and crew, sometimes even courtly — and always witty,” Taylor said Tuesday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
    Sheen was fired from the hit CBS show Monday.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Sheen was fired Monday from "Two and a Half Men" by Warner Bros. Television following the hard-living actor's bouts of wild partying, repeated hospitalizations and a bitter media campaign against his studio bosses.

    Zsa Zsa Gabor taken
    to hospital by ambulance

    LOS ANGELES — Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to a hospital Wednesday in an ambulance  when blood flow stopped to her leg, a publicist said.
    Doctors ordered the ailing 94-year-old actress to go to UCLA Medical Center because of the problem with her left leg, publicist John Blanchette said.
    Most of Gabor’s right leg was amputated in January because of gangrene.
