Wilson, who also appeared on an episode of CSI: NY, reportedly hanging himself on a “commercial premises” in Los Angeles. Wilson was thought to have been dead since Nov. 26.

Four Christmases was #1 at the box office for the second week in a row, bringing in $18 million. The total gross so far for the holiday comedy is $70.8 million. Which means the American public likes it when stars who despise each other make bad comedies where the high point is when a baby vomits on Reese’s breasts.

- Nigel Barker is STRAIGHT?!?! America’s Next Top Model‘s judge and celebrity photographer Nigel Barker has birthed a daughter Jasmine with wife Cristen Chin Barker. Jasmine Barker weighed 7 lbs., 11 oz. and was born at 5:03 p.m. in NYC yesterday. Seriously, watching that show you wonder if he’s a hound who wanted to tag all the models or was just slightly butcher than Jay Manuel. Question answered!
