Liz Claiborne Has Died

Fashion designer Liz Claiborne, whose styles became a cornerstone of career women’s wardrobes in the 1970s and 1980s, has died, the company she founded said Wednesday. She was 78. The cause of her death on Tuesday was not immediately known. Liz, who retired from the day-to-day operations in 1989, founded Liz Claiborne Inc. in 1976 along with second husband Art Ortenberg and Leonard Boxer. Their goal was to create a collection of fashions aimed at the growing number of women entering the work force. The company released this statement: "In losing Liz Claiborne, we have not only lost the founder of our company, but an inspirational woman who revolutionized the fashion industry 30 years ago. Her commitment to style and design is ever present in our thinking and the way we work. We will remember Liz for her vision, her entrepreneurial spirit and her enduring compassion and generosity.”

Even More On The Benoit Family Deaths

Please read this post remembering that some of the stuff you might read could bother some people. Please pass over this post if you need to. This case has taken me in and I am following it very closly. As I posted before, I was a fan of Chris' in the late 1990's. I still have the autographed photo he sent me. The deaths are turning out to not just be murder, but murder and sucide at Chris' hand. That is hard to read, but I feel like I need to post the information that I have.

The WWE sent a statement to TMZ.com about the way the media is covering the case. Part of the statement reads: "The physical findings announced by authorities indicate deliberation, not rage. The wife's feet and hands were bound and she was asphyxiated, not beaten to death. By the account of the authorities, there were substantial periods of time between the death of the wife and the death of the son, again suggesting deliberate thought, not rage. The presence of a Bible by each is also not an act of rage." The WWE also made it clear that Chris tested negitive to steroids in the company's independently administered drug testing program, done on April 10, 2007.

Officials gave the following statement concerning how they believe the deaths took place: "Mr, Benoit had sometime, possibly Friday, murdered his wife by asphyxiation. Sometime shortly after that, the same for his son Daniel and sometime later ... committed suicide by hanging himself in the basement area." According to officials, Nancy was bound at the wrists and feet, with a towel wrapped around her body, and blood was found underneath her head. A Bible was also reportedly found near each one of the bodies. Police have also confirmed that prescription drugs and steroids were found in the house. Benoit was found hanging in a weight room in his house. Cops say that he used a cord from one of his workout machines as a makeshift noose. Authorities also believe that Benoit died on Saturday.

Nancy Benoit once told a judge that she was, "intimidated by threats of violence" from Chris. In divorce papers filed in 2003, Nancy included a petition for protection from domestic abuse against Chris. In the papers, Nancy claimed that Benoit, "lost his temper and threatened to strike the petitioner and cause extensive damage to the home and personal belongings of the parties, including furniture." Nancy added that she was, "in reasonable fear for petitioner's own safety and that of the minor child." Three months later, Nancy filed to have the divorce papers and the restraining order dismissed. A short time later, a judge granted her wish.

I also included some older photos of Chris and Nancy when they worked together in the wrestling world.

Paris Is Out Of Jail

Paris Hilton walked out of jail Tuesday morning after serving what she has called a life-changing sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related driving case all smiles. Shortly after midnight, Paris, her hair in a long ponytail and wearing an olive jacket, white shirt and jeans – was escorted by deputies out of the jail complex's door. She waved to a crowd of nearly 200 reporters, photographers and others, and walked up to a waiting Escalade carrying her parents. "Mom!" she said as she embraced her mother at the car. After she got in, the chauffeured car then drove off with a swarm of photographers in its wake. Paris’ release was broadcast live by cable news networks and local stations. Before leaving the jail building, she had gone into a public restroom to change into her street clothes, said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

I kept this short and sweet because I know some people are sick of hearing about Paris.

More On The Death Of Chris Benoit

World Wrestling Entertainment star Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy and their 7-year-old son Daniel were found dead inside the family's secluded Fayetteville, Georgia, home on Monday as I reported last night. According to the Fayette County Sheriff‘s Department, "We are currently treating this as a double homicide-suicide. We feel confident that everything is contained within the home." Benoit (pronounced: ben-WAH), a native of Canada, was a former world heavyweight champion, Intercontinental champion and held several tag-team titles during his career. He had two other children from a previous relationship, according to the Associated Press.

Benoit and wife, Nancy had been married since 1985 and Nancy had managed several wrestlers and used the stage name "Woman," according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Speaking to the paper, Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard said of the case, "The details, when they come out, are going to prove a little bizarre." Ballard, while declining to say how the fatalities occurred, also told the AP that no gun was used in the deaths. Autopsy results are due Tuesday, according to a spokesman for the Sheriff's Department.

On Saturday, after informing WWE officials of "a family emergency," Benoit was conspicuous by his absence from that night's live event in Beaumont, Texas – and again at WWE's Vengeance: Night of Champions in Houston 24 hours later. Friends who received curious text messages from the entertainer on Sunday morning contacted the wrestling organization, which in turn asked the Sheriff's office to run a welfare check on the family at their home on the south side of the Atlanta metro area. After learning of what occurred, the WWE canceled its live Monday Night RAW, and USA Network aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit in place of the scheduled wrestling telecast. "WWE extends its sincerest thoughts and prayers to the Benoit family's relatives and loved ones in this time of tragedy," the federation posted in a statement on its Web site.

UPDATE: TMZ.com is reporting details on the deaths. Please remember the details might be hard to read. They are reporting: Several Atlanta-based law enforcement sources have told TMZ Benoit may have strangled his wife on Saturday, then smothered his son in his bed a day later. Investigators refuse to officially comment, pending final confirmation by the coroner on the cause and time of the deaths.One source told TMZ that Benoit was texting friends during Sunday's WWE "Vengeance" Pay-Per-View program -- possibly watching the show with his son, who may have been alive at the time.According to sources, Benoit then hanged himself Monday in a weight room inside the family home. A police investigation is ongoing.

UPDATE 2: According to a comment to this post Chris and his wife, Nancy have not been married since 1985. I will check into that information.

WWE said that there was a "family emergency" that prevented him from being there. Benoit, a former World Heavyweight Champ, wreaked havoc with his signature move, the "Crippler Crossface." The incident comes on the heels of the shocking death of former WWE wrestler "Sensational" Sherri Martel, and the supposed "assassination" of WWE head honcho Vince McMahon. TMZ has learned that the WWE is scrapping all references to the McMahon death storyline on tonight's episode of "Raw.' According to the official WWE website, tonight's "Raw" will serve as a tribute to the wrestling great. Police are investigating the incident.

Hugh Hefner's Life Is Gonna Be A Movie

Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner’s wild life is being turned into a feature film that will look at his social activism as well as his sexual exploits, Daily Variety reported on Monday. “Playboy” will be directed by Brett Ratner, the filmmaker behind the “Rush Hour” movies, the trade paper said. It is being produced for Universal Pictures by Brian Grazer, who won the best picture Academy Award for “A Beautiful Mind.” Hefner, 81, who sold his life rights to Grazer several years ago, approved the duo’s vision for the project last week, Daily Variety said. The paper said a script is being written now. “Hef came from a puritanical upbringing and reinvented himself to be the godfather of the sexual revolution,” Daily Variety quoted Ratner as saying. “He broke all kinds of taboos, especially in sexuality. I want to show it all, from the First Amendment (guaranteeing free speech) struggles to his first orgy to the stroke in the 1980s that almost killed him.” Hefner founded Playboy in 1953, turning a $600 investment and a picture of Marilyn Monroe into one of the most successful publishing empires in history. He coaxed along the sexual revolution of the 1960s and used the pages of his magazine to write lengthy articles fighting censorship and promoting various other libertarian causes. Playboy magazine is owned by Playboy Enterprises Inc. Universal Pictures is a unit of General Electric Co.’s NBC Universal Inc.

Tim McGraw Shows Off

Tim McGraw was absolutely stuffed after a dinner at Vaticano near Toronto ... and he proved it to photogs outside his hotel… by doing his best Britney Spears impression I think. Tim and wife Faith Hill dined with country crony Reba McEntire for three hours and the father of three was feeling pretty darn perky afterward by unveiling his belly for passersby and paparazzi.

Paris' Final Days In Jail

Paris Hilton got a visit from actress Ashley Scott (TV's Jericho) on Sunday night – her final visit before she leaves jail Tuesday. Ashley Scott arrived around 7:15 and stayed for 45 minutes. When asked if the visit was emotional Ashley replied, "Yes, of course. You can't touch or hug. It's hard." What's the first thing Paris wants to do after being released? "Eat!" said Ashley. "She's looking forward to eating."

Earlier in the weekend, Paris also received a visit from her mother, who said her daughter was in good shape but frustrated. "I think she's very, very excited to see the family," Kathy Hilton, accompanied by two assistants, told PEOPLE as she entered the Lynwood, Calif., lockup on Saturday before spending an hour inside. The visitors said Paris pressed her hands against the glass in the visiting area, frustrated she couldn't hug her mother. Kathy Hilton also told PEOPLE that Paris appears to be in good shape – though she is upset with her situation. "She's sick of orange," says her mother. But, Kathy Hilton added, her daughter's "health is good. She looks ... like Paris."

On Friday, sheriff's officials announced that the socialite will leave jail on Tuesday after serving 23 days of the original 45-day sentence imposed by a judge for her having violated probation related to driving repeatedly with a suspended license in an alcohol-related case. Following her sentencing on May 4, Paris reported for jail late the night of June 3 after attending the MTV Movie Awards.

Paris Hilton has been spending her days in jail, reading, find God (LOL) and writing letters. Okay, she wrote one to her dad for Father's Day... sweet, but now she is writing to her fans who are sending fan mail to the jail. What can I say she has the handwriting of a 15-year-old. I mean I wrote this sweet, girly way 10 years ago. (Yes, Paris and I are about the same again... don't remind me.) So I can't understand why I grown woman feels the need to write like a school sending notes to a boy in class. Does anyone else find it odd?
