Leguizamo back on Broadway
NEW YORK - Five years after appearing with his one-man show ""Sexaholix,' John Leguizamo is back on Broadway - this time in the role he watched Al Pacino perform in the '80s.
The 44-year-old actor Leguizamo recalled seeing Pacino in the 1983-84 revival of David Mamet's ""American Buffalo.'
Directed by Robert Falls, the play opens Nov. 17.
"Girls Next Door' co-star gets engaged
LOS ANGELES - One of Hugh Hefner's live-in girlfriends is trading the grotto for the gridiron.
The Playboy mogul said Thursday that ""The Girls Next Door' co-star Kendra Wilkinson is engaged to Philadelphia Eagles receiver Hank Baskett. The 23-year-old model-actress has lived with Hefner since 2004 and co-stars as one of his three girlfriends in the E! reality series.
""I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June,' Hefner said.
Civil trial of former "Hills' star ends
LOS ANGELES - A jury has awarded $15,000 in punitive damages to a tow truck driver who was slugged by former ""Laguna Beach' personality Jason Wahler.
In all, Dario Stevenson won a $20,000 judgment against Wahler after a weeklong trial.
Jurors awarded Stevenson $5,000 on Thursday after finding that Wahler committed battery and inflicted emotional distress on the 41-year-old driver after punching him and hurling racial slurs at him in 2006.
The award was drastically lower than the $1 million that Stevenson's attorney wanted. He said the award amounted to jurors condoning Wahler's conduct.
