Trebek out of hospital after heart attack
LOS ANGELES - 'Jeopardy' host Alex Trebek is out of the hospital and plans to spend the holidays at home with his family as he recovers from a heart attack.
'I'm truly overwhelmed by the great show of support and compassion expressed in the past few days to me, my family and my co-workers,' Trebek said Saturday after his release from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, in a statement relayed by 'Jeopardy' publicist Jeff Ritter.
'Even though I know 'Jeopardy' is a very popular program, I was still surprised at the number of people who took time from their schedules to call or send a note of encouragement,' Trebek said.
'Entourage' star volunteers at soup kitchen
NEW YORK - Adrian Grenier, who's usually busy either being a celebrity or playing one on TV, took a break to hang out in more humble surroundings and serve up some grub at a soup kitchen.
The native Brooklynite returned home Friday with his mother and uncle to volunteer at Neighbors Together Soup Kitchen in the Brownsville section of the borough.
'It's so important to give back during the holidays and throughout the year, and I wanted to do my part by helping people here in Brooklyn,' the actor said in a statement. 'It isn't right that millions of families suffer from hunger and worry about getting their next meal. We all need to help in whatever way we can.'
K-Fed lawyer says he'll seek court sanctions
LOS ANGELES - Running out of patience with Britney Spears, Kevin Federline's attorney on Friday said he plans to seek consequences.
Mark Vincent Kaplan, who represents Spears' ex-husband in their child custody case, said Friday that he would ask for sanctions against the pop star for calling in sick to her court-ordered deposition.
Spears didn't show up to testify at Kaplan's office Wednesday as scheduled, and Kaplan said later that her lawyers told him she wasn't feeling well. Spears was photographed later that day driving with a friend.
'This can be done with her active participation or without it,' said Kaplan.
