Stevie Nicks: Betty Ford saved my life

After news broke last Friday that former First Lady Betty Ford had died, one of the first statements CNN received was from Stevie Nicks. The legendary Fleetwood Mac singer sent just one succinct sentence: "As far as I'm concerned, Betty Ford saved my life."

An hour or so later, she followed it up with a phone call - made as she was driving to a Vanessa Carlton concert from her home in Malibu. She was talking on a borrowed phone, since she doesn't own one herself.

Here are excerpts from that 10 minute phone conversation:

Rebecca Black is back with a 'Moment'

Rebecca Black’s got a new single coming, and no, it has nothing to do with a day of the week.

The 14-year-old – whose name became inescapable after she starred in the music video for the song  the Internet loved to hate  – will drop a new track called “My Moment” on July 18 at 8:00 p.m. on her YouTube channel and website, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Brandon "Blue" Hamilton (who penned a track on Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never: The Remixes") and Quinton Tolbert wrote the song, about the teen's rapid climb to stardom.

The music video for "My Moment" will show Black getting an award at her junior high school and hitting red carpet events. As a statement puts it, "It's a fairytale story, but it happened in real life."

If you like what you hear, the song will be available on iTunes and e-retailers the following day.

“My Moment” is just the warm-up for Black – she's also set to self-release a five-track EP in August, bypassing signing with a label.

Trouble’s brewing on ‘True Blood’

Last night’s episode was the calm before the storm with witches gone rogue, a little role reversal between vamps and the emergence of a new top cat in Hotshot.

After Sookie rolled up on Eric dazed and confused and half-naked, she discovered that he had, in fact, taken a turn for the better. Kinder, though still true to his vampire urges, Sookie agreed to help him so long as he didn't touch and/or feed on her.

Eric told her what he could remember about his run-in with Marnie and the Moon Goddess crew. Sookie in turn told Pam what happened and a Pam-style freak out commenced.
