People are still talking about how bad Whitney Houston was performing at the Olympics in Turin.
"Nowhere close to a gold-medal performance, nor even a bronze contender," a witness told Canadian columnist Shinan Govani. Houston coughed, sniffled and talked her way through one song and told the crowd: "Why did they choose to do this outdoors? I don't sing in the cold. It makes my voice funny."
Her last number, "I Will Always Love You," quickly became "her all-time low moment," the witness reports. Unable to reach the high notes, "Whitney smiled, waved and winked to the fans. Karaoke drag queens can belt it out better."

Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe announced their split in January but on Sunday the couple met at the low-key Tra di Noi restaurant in Malibu for a late lunch.
"They seemed to be getting along very well," said an observer, noting that after the meal, Lowe, 38, walked Swank, 31, to her car. "He put his arm on her back when they were saying goodbye."
So, are the pair, who wed eight years ago, reconciling? No official word yet, but a close friend of the double-Oscar winner said, "It's not the first time (they've eaten together), it's just the first time the cameras have been around. It's evidence that they're working on their marriage."
These preservation-of-marriage acts can be typical, say professionals. "In any divorce or separation, people are confused. They think, 'Maybe I shouldn't be so hasty,'" says Beverly Hills psychiatrist Carole Lieberman.
Fresh off of the likely cancellation of her UPN series, Kristin Cavalleri is now offering herself for sale. The high bidder during a charity eBay auction will have a 10-minute conversation with Kristin, although via Skype, not a real phone.
Brooke Shields, Rachel Bilson, and Melissa Etheridge are among the other celebrities participating in the Skype-a-Celeb auction. The proceeds benefit The Art of Elysium, an organization that encourages artists to dedicate their time and talent to under-served, at risk and hospitalized children whose lives are constantly disrupted by hardship, or chronic and often terminal illness.
If you should win the conversation with Kristin, just dont try to talk to her about her cocaine use: The New York Daily News Lloyd Grove did that, and she said, I just really dont want to go there. I dont want to be associated with that. Then her eavesdropping publicist cut off the conversation, saying, I just dont like the way this conversation is going.

Grant responded by taking photographers of the snapper with his camera phone, saying, "How do you like it, mate?" before calling the paparazzo a "p**sy" and slapped the manila folder he was carrying across his head.
Frydman explains, "The photographer kept smirking at him. He said, 'I don't know what you're so mad about.' (Grant responded), 'You're invading my privacy. This is your last warning, you c**t.' The photographer kept taunting him. That's when Grant kicked him in the butt. Not hard - he was just trying to shove him away. I said to the photographer, 'Leave him alone or he's going to hit you again.' I said to Hugh Grant, 'Don't hit him again, or he's going to sue you.'"
