Miles told CNN she had been in rehearsals for the lead role in a production of "Beehive" when her mother's Envoy caught fire after the electrical system failed.

Rob Lowe on that infamous sex tape

It’s been more than 20 years since Rob Lowe was traipsing about as a member of the “Brat Pack” – a name for his then-circle of celeb friends that the 47-year-old actor now heartily accepts – and the road to fame has changed.

Back in his day, Lowe told Oprah Winfrey on her show Thursday, when one’s sex tape caught the attention of the press, it wasn’t a good thing.

And the “Parks and Recreation” star should know: he was at the forefront of sex tape leaks, thanks to a video of the actor and two young women, one of whom was 16, making headlines back in 1989.

'The Office' says goodbye to Steve Carell tonight
