For 'Lost' fans with money to burn, there's a complete collection

Whatever pocket change “Lost” fans have left after buying the sixth and final season of the ABC series – and after dropping thousands at the official “Lost” auction - should obviously go towards buying the complete “Lost” collection.

The collector's item clocks in at a little over five pounds, according to measurements taken by CNN.com’s health team, which means it’s not so hefty that you couldn’t knock someone over and run off with it if need be (not that we would, you know, condone that).

The box boasts a host of items sure to please even a lukewarm fan, like every single episode of “Lost” plus that brand new epilogue and more than 30 hours of bonus material from the six seasons; an exclusive episode guide; a black light penlight; the “Lost” "senet" game as seen in season six; a replica of the “Lost” island; and an Ankh with a "secret message."

If you want the plain old DVD edition, the collector’s box will run you $229.99, but if you want the Blu-Ray, add another $50 to that price.

Jenna Jameson: Own up to your porn, celebs

As Heidi Montag tries to stop ex-husband Spencer Pratt from peddling a sex tape, adult film star Jenna Jameson is telling celebrities to stop whining about their homemade porn going public – especially when they’re making money off of it.

"Why do people do porno tapes, sell them, make boatloads of money, then LIE about being victimized. I know one girl who sold her tape herself," Jameson tweeted on Tuesday. “I know one of the girls that acts so prim and proper and sold her tape to get famous. The others I just speculate.”

While Jameson, 36, didn’t name names, some celebrities - including Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian - have seen their stars skyrocket following the release of their sex tapes.

And that’s exactly why the mother of twins wants celebrities to quit complaining. “I own up to my porn,” she said.  “I don't cry and say my boyfriend stole it."

Wyclef Jean speaks on anniversary of Katrina

Wyclef Jean may not be able to run for president of Haiti, but the musician is still focused on raising awareness on Haiti's continued efforts to rebuild.

So in response to the upcoming anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Jean released a statement Wednesday that acknowledges the post-Katrina devastation New Orleans has suffered as well as the wreckage Haiti is still digging through after a disastrous earthquake in January, 2010.

“The destruction that Katrina caused really struck home for me–so many brothers and sisters lost, and so many lives shattered,” Jean said in the statement.

Elliott wrote and produced tracks for Aaliyah's 1996 album "One in a Million," and said that working with the R&B singer was a dream.

Angelina Jolie ready for the director’s chair

Angelina Jolie ready for the director’s chair

After years in front of the camera, Angelina Jolie is ready for a seat in the director’s chair.

The Oscar-winning actress will helm a love story set during the Bosnian War, focusing on the effects the turmoil has on the budding romance between a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman, according to a statement from U.K. production company GK Films.

It sounds politically charged, but Jolie has described the film as “a love story, not a political statement,” adding, “I would like to involve as many local people as I can.” Contrary to earlier reports, Jolie won't be acting in this one.

The 35-year-old actress will produce the feature film alongside another Oscar-winner, Graham King ("The Departed"), and his business partner Tim Headington. The three previously combined their talents to produce “The Tourist,” which will debut in theaters December 10.
