A Collection of Entertaining Entertainment News!

It’s a Saturday, and I decided to do some desk cleaning. In the midst of cleaning my desk, I came across some stories I thought I would pass along here. Once again, as I’ve mentioned before, through the week I collect various entertainment stories. While they’re good and worthwhile stories, they often don’t constitute enough material for one single post.

As a result, those stories pile up until I have enough to put into one post. Coming in this post you will find;

  • Hollywood Walk of Fame Announced Honorees for 2010
  • Johnny Depp A Really Big Tipper
  • Monroe and Presley Auction Items

Walk of Fame Honorees for 2010

Russell Crowe, Adam Sandler, Jimmy Kimmel and former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr are among the stars who will get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame Committee recently announced the recipients, but specific dates for each ceremony have not yet been announced.

Among other names making the list for next year – John Cusack, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Mark Wahlberg, director James Cameron, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Bill Maher, Sam Waterston, Jon Cryer, Peter Graves and ESPN’s Chris Berman.

Aside from actors and directors, some musicians will also receive stars in 2010. They include, Bryan Adams, Van Morrison, ZZ Top, Alan Jackson, The Funk Brothers, Chaka Khan, Randy Newman and Roy Orbison.

Johnny Depp a Really Big Tipper

Johnny Depp’s latest flick, Public Enemies, is set for release on Wednesday, July 1. With that in mind, it’s time for Depp and the rest of the crew to be out pushing the upcoming release. The Chicago Sun-Times is reported that Depp gave a rather large tip to a waiter when he, and others, were in town for the red carpet screening of the movie.

According to the paper, Depp and the crew ran up a bill of more than $4,000 at Gibson’s restaurant. When they finished the meal, Mohammed Sekhani ended up with the big tip. Mohammed is also known as “waiter to the stars” because they all like to sit in his section.

If you’re wondering, Public Enemies co-stars Christian Bale. Depp plays the legendary gangster John Dillinger.

Monroe & Presley Auction

Coming soon to an auction house near you! Well, okay, maybe the auction house won’t be close to you, but some pretty amazing items are going up on the auction block!

Julien’s auction house is holding a celebrity auction at the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas later soon. Up for auction, pieces of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe! Clothing, cosmetics, checks and other items once owned by Marilyn Monroe will be up for grabs. Also, medical supplies Elvis Presley had in his possession when he was still alive are also up for auction. You can even bid on prescription bottles dated August 15, 1977, the day before Elvis’ death.

Martin Nolan, who works for Julien’s, said several of Monroe’s items came from the woman who lived in teh actress’ house after her death.
