Frankie Muniz told "People" magazine he's "happy to be alive" following his mini-stroke late last week. And while he admits he eats like a "7- to 10-year-old kid", he adds, quote, "I consider myself to be very healthy… "I never in my life had a sip of alcohol or even touched a drug. I take a lot of pride in that." Still, he says, quote, "They say it is usually a warning of maybe what could happen in the future. It's changed my mentality when I'm going to eat now. I feel a lot less invincible." As for what exactly happened on Friday, Frankie had just finished a workout and was on his motorcycle, headed to the home of his girlfriend's mother to pick something up, when his vision began to blur. He says, quote, "I thought I had something on the visor of my helmet. I couldn't focus out of my right eye. By the time I got to her mom's house I pretty much had no vision in my right eye." Then he started getting dizzy, and experiencing pain in his head and other parts of his body. He says, quote, "I felt like I was getting stabbed in the head . . . the worst headache you could ever think of. I couldn't see anything." When he got to the house and tried to talk to his girlfriend, she told him, quote, "You're not speaking English." That's when he went to the hospital. Frankie is still under a doctor's care, but he does plan to go out with his band Kingsfoil on an eight-date tour, which starts this weekend.
Police have determined that Gabriel Aubry was responsible for his fight with Olivier Martinez in front of Halle Berry’s house on Thanksgiving Day.

And although police are concerned with Aubry's ongoing anger issues, both Halle and Olivier have said they don't want him prosecuted, because it wouldn't be in the best interest of Halle and Aubry's daughter.

As the prices keep dropping for big screen high-definition TVs, the pressure keeps building for celebrities to hide any sign of aging. Britney Spears just turned 31…and she’s reportedly already using Botox. But one surgeon thinks she’s going overboard on the injections. The expression lines and wrinkles on her forehead are completely gone and she has a droopiness to her upper eyelids. So she’s having it injected there as well. Comic Jeff Ross blames it on the lameness of The X Factor itself. He says “It’s shot in High –Def because you have to be high & deaf to get through an episode.
More creepy details are emerging from Mario Lopez’s wedding last Saturday.

TLC paid them for that, then paid all the expenses and taped the ceremony for an upcoming special “Mario & Courtney’s Wedding Fiesta” that airs Saturday night. The photos were sold to “Us Weekly” His bride had no say what so ever in the planning. Isn’t it customary for the bride to pick the maid of honor? Not where Mario’s concerned. He’s the one who chose Eva Longoria for that role (after years of rumors that he and Eva were cheating while she was married to Tony Parker. However, Mario did cave on two details. He allowed a clause in their prenup that penalizes him $5 million if he’s ever caught cheating. And for obvious reasons, he wasn’t permitted to have a bachelor party.
