Chesney to aid bomb victims
Country star Kenny Chesney is starting a fund to help those who lost limbs in the Boston Marathon bombing.
A Tuesday news release says Chesney has established the "Spread the Love" fund with his own donation and will gift sales of his single by the same name as well. Donations will go to Boston Medical Center and other area facilities. Fans also can donate directly to the fund at http://bmc.org/Kenny.
The money will go to the purchase of prosthetics and fitting, follow-up care and physical therapy.
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured in the April 15 attack at the marathon finish line.
Chesney co-wrote "Spread the Love" with The Wailers. It appears on his new album "Life on a Rock," out this week.
A spokeswoman for Catherine Zeta-Jones says the actress has "proactively" checked into a mental health facility for treatment of her bipolar condition.
Publicist Sarah Fuller said in an email to The Associated Press late Monday that Zeta-Jones "is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner."
Two years ago, the 43-year-old Oscar-winner checked into a similar facility for a brief stay for treatment of her condition, known as Bipolar II.
The disorder is characterized by mood swings and depressive episodes, and is commonly treated with medication and psychotherapy.
Zeta-Jones has been one of the busiest talents in show business of late, appearing in such films as "Rock of Ages," "Broken City" and "Side Effects."
"Pretty Little Liars" star Tyler Blackburn is moving from ABC Family's biggest hit, "Pretty Little Liars," to its spinoff.
The network announced Tuesday that the actor will star in "Ravenswood," which will premiere in October after the annual "Liars" Halloween episode.
Blackburn's character Caleb Rivers will cross over to the new series.
Hundreds of personal items, including antiques, artwork and furniture once owned by Bob Hope and his wife, Dolores, will be auctioned to benefit a Southern California charity.
The Daily News of Los Angeles said proceeds from the sale Saturday will help the family service center at St. Charles Borromeo Church in North Hollywood, where Dolores Hope was a member for 70 years.
The couple's daughter, Linda Hope, says memorabilia from Bob Hope's long show business career also will be up for sale.
