Bon Jovi marks anniversary with concert
NEW YORK -- Jon Bon Jovi spent his 21st wedding anniversary doing what he does best -- performing.
The rocker was the entertainment for Thursday's gala for DKMS, which helps find bone marrow donors for leukemia patients. Bon Jovi was there with his wife, Dorethea.
He sang some of his band's biggest hits, including ''Livin' on a Prayer.''
Michaels may return to show
LOS ANGELES -- Bret Michaels could stage yet another comeback sooner than expected.
Doctors say it is possible that Michaels, the outspoken 47-year-old former Poison frontman currently competing on ''The Celebrity Apprentice,'' could be healthy enough to appear on the NBC reality series' live finale on May 23. Michaels, one of seven stars remaining in the competition, has been in intensive care since suffering a brain hemorrhage last week.
''If all the studies he had done show no evidence of an aneurysm being found, it would really just depend on his energy level,'' said Dr. Ronald Benitez, director of cerebrovascular surgery at Overlook Hospital in Summit, N.J. ''If all the tests were negative, and I was watching the show at the end of May, I personally wouldn't be surprised if he was on it.''
Phillips case dismissed
LOS ANGELES -- A judge has dismissed a drug case against Mackenzie Phillips.
Los Angeles County district attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says Phillips successfully completed a drug diversion program and the case was dismissed Friday.
The actress had pleaded guilty to the felony drug possession charge in October 2008 after she was arrested by airport screeners who said she was found with narcotics.
