Brigitte Nielsen to ‘Overhaul’ Her Body on German TV June 4, 2008

After a successful stint in rehab last year, Brigitte Nielsen is now focusing on a much-needed makeover.

The 6-ft.-plus Danish-born celebrity is planning on getting reworked from head to toe. “I’m doing a complete overhaul, a basic renovation, facelift, eyelift, facial fat injections with my own fat, liposuction and I need new teeth,” the 45-year-old former wife of Sylvester Stallone tells the Berlin-based magazine B.Z. “It really is as if a horde of craftsmen are getting an old house in top shape.”

And Nielsen is having her this “old house” makeover on TV, saying she’s having work done so publicly because “the secretiveness in Hollywood is annoying. I know that I’m the first celebrity woman in the world who’ll be filmed in the operating room without any taboos…I’m sure this will start a discussion. It’s time that things change. I feel like 30 and I want to look it, too.”

By doing so, that’ll put her closer to the age of her fifth husband, Mattia Dessi. Nielsen married the former Italian model, who is 30, in 2005 — and again in 2006.

After nearly five months, Mary-Kate Olsen still refuses to speak about the fact that she was the first person called after Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment.

“I’m not going to comment on that,” Olsen, who turns 22 on June 13, tells Elle in its July issue. “I won’t give you a word about that in the nicest way possible. Let’s move on.”
The actress, who said in a statement last January that “Heath was a “friend” and “his death is a tragic loss,” also keeps mum about being a celebrity.

“It’s not a part of my life. It’s a media perception of who I am,” she tells the magazine. “It’s very weird. I mean, if I see a paparazzi shot of me walking that’s in a magazine or something at some event, it’s as if I see it from an outsider’s point of view. There’s like a character, almost, and then there’s me.”

West Hollywood — Drew Barrymore is playing a role in solving a real-life crime story. The “Charlie’s Angels” star was involved in a hit-and-run accident while driving in West Hollywood Monday.

The collision occurred shortly before noon as Barrymore was driving near Gardner Street and Santa Monica Boulevard, said Sgt. Kristin Aloma of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station.

The hit-and-run motorist sped off and remains at large. But sources say Barrymore was able to follow the other driver long enough to get the license plate number, Aloma said.

Police are trying to track down the driver.

Barrymore, 33, a Golden Globe nominee, is best known for her roles in films such as “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”, “Scream,” “Charlie’s Angels” and “Never Been Kissed.”
