Larry Hagman -- best known as evil oil baron J.R. Ewing on Dallas -- died on Friday. He was 81.
Hagman, who'd had a long history of health problems, died in Texas from complications from cancer. He was in the midst of filming the second season of the Dallas re-boot. A statement from his family says, "Larry was back in his beloved hometown of Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved the most. Larry's family and closest friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday."
In addition to Dallas, Hagman will also be remembered as Major Tony Nelson on the '60s sitcom I Dream of Jeannie.
There's no word on how the producers of the new Dallas series plan to deal with Hagman's death.

Charlie Sheen has a new pet charity -- Lindsay Lohan.
The actor reportedly sent Linds a $100,000 check to help her pay back taxes. TMZ says the two troubled stars bonded on the set of Scary Movie 5 in September. Charlie offered to give her some cash back then, but Lindsay refused. Then last week her business manager received the six-figure check from Charlie. Lindsay owes about $234,00 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010.

Emma Stone may be following in the infamous footsteps of Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Hulk Hogan.
The Amazing Spider-Man actress has recorded a sex tape, according to RadarOnline.com. The 24-year-old reportedly filmed the video before meeting her current boyfriend, Andrew Garfield. A source says, "She was just young and probably thought nothing would ever come of it."
The tape hasn't surfaced yet. It's still in the "hands of the person she made it with," says the insider. "But that doesn't mean there's any guarantee that it won't eventually hit the market. The higher Emma's star rises, the more valuable that tape becomes."
Barbara Eden remembers her co-star Larry Hagman as "the center of so many fun, wild, shocking… and in retrospect, memorable moments that will remain in my heart forever." Eden, who starred in I Dream of Jeannie and then matched wits with J.R. Ewing in a memorable Dallas story arc, issued a statement after learning of Hagman's death.
"He was such a key element in my life for so long and even, years after I Dream of Jeannie; our paths crossed many times. Throughout various productions I had the pleasure of watching the Texas Tornado that was Larry Hagman. Amidst a whirlwind of big laughs, big smiles and unrestrained personality Larry was always, simply Larry. You couldn’t fault him for it, it was just who he was. I am so thankful that this past year I was able to spend time with him and experience yet again ‘Larry’ in all his Big Texas bravado. I can honestly say that we’ve lost not just a great actor, not just a television icon, but an element of pure Americana. Goodbye Larry, there was no one like you before and there will never be anyone like you again.”
Last year, before Hagman again fell ill, Barbara noted that they had "some kind of connection -- his timing and my timing work. We really do. The minute that camera is rolling, I have never been more comfortable working with an actor in my life."
Celebrities, they are "just like us". Yesterday, Britney Spears and her extended family went shopping... at Target.
She's earning $15 million this year, though that money is controlled by her father and fiance. Britney is given an allowance, meaning she's not shopping and splurging like the other A-listers. The paparazzi caught The X-Factor judge in the Target parking lot, with her two sons in tow, and her little sister Jamie Lynn.

The holiday season tops celebrity tweets.
Taylor Swift’s new album Red has only been out a month and it’s already nearing the 2.8 million album sales mark worldwide. The 16-track collection has topped charts in 42 countries, with international sales topping 920,000 albums thus far.
If you're hearing this, you avoided or survived the shopping madness known as Black Friday. As usual, some over-excited shoppers threatened their fellow shoppers with bodily harm and/or risked life and limb stampeding into stores in the name of saving a few bucks.
For retailers, the promotions were a boon. They raked in an estimated $59.1 billion in sales over the holiday weekend from Thanksgiving Day through Sunday. That's up from $52.4 million last year, according to the National Retail Federation. Spending per shopper was also up six-percent to $423.
While the holiday weekend is over, the shopping in not -- it was expected to continue on what's known as Cyber Monday, when office workers who haven't had their fill hit the web in search of deals from the comfort of their home or office.

A man in Maine will have to spend five days in jail after he failed in an attempt to seduce his estranged wife, then slapped her in the face ... with his genitals.
Fred Thomas pleaded guilty to a variety of charges stemming from the incident, which took place after his wife of nearly 40 years slept at his house back in July. He offered her 20 bucks for a sexual encounter, and when she turned down the "opportunity," he grew angry and struck her with his penis -- a gesture his lawyer says was "not his normal conduct."
The wife did not seek jail time for Thomas but did ask that he undergo counseling for anger management, which was also ordered. (Bangor Daily News)
A British retiree is set to be sentenced on drug charges after he was caught growing thousands of dollars worth of pot -- to pay for his son's stint in drug rehab.
Frank Jones admitted that he'd been tending the cannabis crop on his rural property, but insisted he was no hardened criminal, merely a concerned parent. The 74-year-old, who says he knew his actions were illegal, told a judge, "You tell me any parent who sees their son suffering who would not do just about anything to help them. When I learned what I was charged with, I was gobsmacked."
Just call it another good moneymaking plan gone to pot. (Daily Mail)
A Kentucky man is in police custody after he went into a Wal-Mart bathroom and tried to bring the store the one product is was lacking -- a heapin' helping of meth!
James Prater aroused suspicion among store employees after they noticed he was spending an awfully long time in the can -- and when security guards went to check on him, they found him passed out on the floor. Cops summoned to the scene woke the 36-year-old and searched his backpack, in which they found all the makings of a working meth lab.
The store was evacuated -- and we're guessing the same could be said for Prater's innards, once he realized he was headed for jail (WKYT)
A New Jersey man is facing charges of driving while intoxicated after being hauled in while bailing out a friend who was behind bars for ... driving while intoxicated.
Joseph Shea was taken into custody after a witness saw him driving erratically at a high rate of speed, while in the parking lot of a south Jersey police station. He tried to flee when cops approached him for questioning, but didn't get far before being busted.
Shea was released without posting bail, and was picked up by a friend -- who hadn't had a drop to drink. No word on what happened to the original booze-hound driver. (Philadelphia Inquirer)
DIET & EXERCISE: Best Diet Tricks of All Time
OK, so you over-indulged a little over Thanksgiving weekend. Need to lose a few pounds before the rest of the holiday eating frenzy begins? Maybe the best diet tricks of all time can help get you in tip-top shape for the weeks ahead:
When it comes to healthy and beauty, it’s not always right to trust your gut. Here are "10 Counterintuitive Health and Beauty Tips":
Millions of Americans will be heading into shopping malls between now and Christmas, in search of gifts and bargains.
Financial experts are warning shoppers against the number one rip-off in the world – the retail store credit card.
Store employees have incentives and want you to open up new accounts. They offer a 10 percent or 15 percent discount on that first purchase – and it’s tempting. But financial planners urge customers to be careful.
Racking up debt through the holidays can be a budget buster. And, making matters worse, the interest rates on those store credit cards can be obscene.
If you look at the fine print, some of those cards are charging almost 30 percent interest. This means that, if you don't pay off your bills in full every month, you pay 28 percent more than the purchase price – twice as much as you would be charged on a typical credit card. That’s just crazy. (MoneyCrashers.com)
Well, here’s some good news for people who plan to board airplanes carrying snow globes … The TSA security people will let you through.
They need to contain less than 3.4 ounces of water, though – and need to be able to fit in a quart-sized baggie.
The TSA is also now allowing pies and cakes – but the food might need “further inspection” before being waved through. (What does this mean? A taste test?)
Lastly, the TSA is discouraging travelers from bringing wrapped presents along in their carry-on bag and warning that they might need to unwrap and inspect the package. (Yahoo News)
