By Tony Franco Cameron Douglas the troubled 33-year-old member of the famous Hollywood family was sentenced to four-and-a-half more years in prison on Wednesday for drug possession while in prison.  
Born in Santa Barbara, California, the elder son of actor Michael Douglas and only child of Diandra Morrell Douglas (whom he divorced in 2000) and grandson of actor Kirk Douglas, got the sentence on top of the five years he is already serving. 
Cameron, once an aspiring actor, whose public addiction with methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine sent him previously to jail in 1999 and 2007, received the additional jail time, after his father Michael, wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and grandfather Kirk Douglas had sent in letters, requesting leniency, during his original sentencing.

The Forty-Niners winners of 5 Super Bowls, played the Steelers who have 6 Championship Titles and this time, The49ers top-ranked defense once again, did an excellent job to beat ailing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-3 in Monday Night Football.

Vernon Davis caught a 1-yard touchdown pass for the 49ers (11-3) one play after setting himself up with a 21-yard reception from Alex SmithFrank Gore scored on a 5-yard run, and David Akers kicked 2 field goals (22 and 38 yards) to overtake Hall of Famer Jerry Rice for San Francisco's single-season scoring record.

A transformer outside the stadium blew out right before the game and the lights were out twice! The first time the game was delayed for about 20 minutes, and the second time, a 10-minute interruption stopped the game during the second quarter.

By Alejandra Rodríguez



Adamari Lopez and Spanish dancer Toni Costa can no longer hide their feelings for one another. They tried to deny that they are dating but, they cannot hide that they are truly very much in love.

In fact, Toni has left everything in his native Spain, and looks like he has settled permanently in Miami to be close to the woman who stole his heart.  


Adamari and Toni met on the hit Spanish-language dance show 'Mira Quien Baila!' and when they danced together a very sensual tango, they couldn't contain the fire within themselves, kissing each other at the end of their performance on the tv show. That reaction was not part of the scrip!
I am personally happy for her, now the ex of the popular Puerto Rican singer and composer Luis Fonsi is happily in love again. She definitely is a woman who deserves the best in life and today, She is on top of the world!
This is the Tango that started their romance!

His eye was checked between rounds and at the end of the 9th inning, the ring doctor Anthony Curreri advised the referee Steve Smoger  to stop the fight, and even though Margarito pleaded him to continue the fight, Smoger stopped the main event and did not let the 10th round begin to prevent further damage to Margarito´s eye.
