Famed executive producer Henry passed away on Mar. 18, reportedly of a heart attack. He was 66 years old.
Henry Bromell, executive producer of the critically acclaimed Showtime series Homeland, passed away at the age of 66 on Monday, March. 18.
His agent and friend Peter Bendek told The Associated Press that Henry died at a Los Angeles area hospital. According to the Los Angeles Times, his death was caused by a heart attack.
“We are deeply saddened by our dear friend Henry Bromell, who has been part of the Showtime family for over a decade,” Showtime executives said in a statement regarding the producer, who worked on the Claire Danes and Damian Lewis-starring show since its premiere in 2011. “Henry was an immensely talented and prolific writer, director and showrunner, and his work on Brotherhood and Homeland was nothing short of brilliant.”
“His passion, warmth, humor and generosity will be greatly missed,” the statement continued. “Our hearts and thoughts go out to his wife and family.”
Henry was also a novelist and short-story writer. Beyond his work on Homeland and Brotherhood, he also worked on Northern Exposure, Homicide: Life on the Street, Chicago Hope, I’ll Fly Away and Rubicon.
He was really a wunderkind,” veteran writer-producer John Falsey, co-creator of Northern Exposure told the L.A Times. “His humor was never broad, always moving. He had a natural ear for dialogue.”
Henry is survived by his wife Sarah and two sons, William and Jake, according to Peter. Our thoughts remain with his family and friends during their time of loss

Briana Tejada, 11, was one of Justin Bieber‘s biggest fans and now that she has sadly lost her battle with Leukemia, Justin took to Twitter to give his condolences.
Justin Bieber Found Out The Bad News In Paris
While touring in Paris, Justin found out that his sweet fan had lost her battle with cancer. Back in January at a concert in Nashville, Justin met Briana, and after her passing, he tweeted on Mar. 18, “just got news about little Briana. I was honored to meet her. I know she is up in heaven smiling.”
After Justin met Briana, her parents had even written on their Facebook page about the get together back, saying that their daughter's meet-and-greet was "a dream come true.” They added that the photo they took together was "the best kiss she's ever had!"

On the March 19 show of ‘Dancing with The Stars’, fans saw an exclusive highlight of what will come on this season of the show, and there was good, bad and ugly!
The March 19 episode ofDancing With the Stars was a sneak peek at what we can expect this season, and wow was the wheat seperated from the chaff! Kellie Pickler and Zendaya proved in their training sessions that they are ballroom babies, while Andy Dick and D. L. Hughley look ready for elimination already!
There is no question about it from watching the training sessions — Jacoby Jones, Zendaya and Kellie are the top contenders, and I am calling it now — the final three! While Jacoby was facing injury and lacks technique, the boy sure can move! Meanwhile Kellie and Zendaya stunned their partners Derek Hough and Val Chmerkovskiy with their natural ability and rhythm.
Ingo Rademacher and Aly Raisman are also pulling no punches this season, as Aly is both driven and fun, while Ingo and Kym Johnson have great, natural chemistry.
Sean Lowe, Victor Ortiz, Lisa Vanderpump and Dorothy Hamill are all good but not great. Dorothy could be a dark horse however, as she uses her figure skating moves in her dancing. Sean is super stiff, but there is potential for serious improvement, and the same can be said for my favorite Real Housewife Lisa. Plus, will we see Giggy in the routine again next week?
As for Victor — what he lacks in grace, he makes up for in butt slapping!
Wynonna Judd needs to seriously step it up and let go of her inhibitions or she will really need the support of her fans to keep going. There may be no hope at all for D.L. and Andy! Andy may get by on his comedy and D.L. seemed to be crippled with nerves on opening night, so I don’t want to write them off just yet!
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Who is going to win this season? Who impressed you most in training?

Lindsay’s got a new mug shot to add to her collection! Is this her best one yet?
After appearing in court on Mar. 18 and pleading no contest to reckless driving and lying to a peace officer, stemming from her car crash on PCH in summer of 2012 when she told police she wasn’t driving, Lindsay Lohan was required to appear within seven days to process her sentencing. On Mar. 19, LiLo turned herself over for booking at the Santa Monica Police Department, where she posed for yet another mug shot to add to her illustrious collection!
Lindsay Lohan’s Mug Shot Collection
Lindsay’s latest shot marks the sixth that’s been made public. The troubled 26-year-old actress had one snapped in NYC near the end of 2012, when she allegedly assaulted a woman in a club, but the NYPD doesn’t make mug shots public, so that photo remains a mystery.
TMZ reports that, minutes after the mug shot was taken, Lindsay was released. As previously reported, the Mean Girls star won’t spend a day inside a jail cell for this latest conviction.
LiLo’s Latest Sentence
Though he judge wound up sentencing her to five days in jail, followed by 90 days of rehab, the jail time will be folded into her stay in a facility, which must be in-patient.
Additionally, Lindsay’s probation was extended for two more years, and she had to go to counseling for the next year and a half. She also must complete 30 days of community service, which she has been permitted to complete in NYC.
Do you think this is Lindsay’s best mug shot yet, HollywoodLifers? Are you hoping that there won’t be anymore?
Once again, Hollywood’s happiest couple went on a romantic getaway. This time Lea and Cory traveled to Vancouver, Canada to attend a friend’s wedding. Do you think this has inspired the ‘Glee’ stars to walk down the aisle soon?
Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were all smiles at the Vancouver International Airport on March 18, after having a romantic, fun-filled weekend at a close friend’s wedding.
On March 17, Lea tweeted, “Perfect weekend getaway in Vancouver:) I love it here..” and Cory took to his Twitter to say, “amazing weekend back in van for my buddy’s wedding!! I even got up the hill afterwards! perf day”
This isn’t the first time the couple has expressed how happy they are. One thing’s for sure, they want the whole world to know how crazy they are for each other!
Lea Michele & Cory Monteith’s Public PDA
Lea and Cory are one Hollywood couple who isn’t afraid to show their love for each other in public. In fact, there is always major PDA it be expected when the Glee stars are out and about. Whether attending a high profile event, or just going to the movies, Lea & Cory can’t seem to keep their hands off of each other!
Lea recently professed her love for Cory in an interview with Marie Claire, revealing: "I don't even remember a time when he wasn't my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it's been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther. He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
Should Cory Propose To Lea?
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers, is it time that this adorable couple walk down the aisle together, and become husband and wife?
Who came back from the dead? Which couple called it quits? And who is the girl in the red coat? Spoilers ahead!
To say the March 19 season finale of Pretty Little Liarswas the most mind-blowing episode of the series to date would be a grAve understatement. After sorting through a few confusing revelations — one of the biggest being that Spencer (Troian Bellisario) was the person who kidnapped Malcolm last week — the girls decided they could finally trust Spencer again. So they joined pretty little forces to take down Mona (Janel Parrish) and unmask the girl in the red coat. And she turned out to be…
Alison (Sasha Pieterse)!
Yes, the long-dead friend of the liars turned out to be not-so-dead after all. Spencer, Hanna (Ashley Benson) and Mona all claim they saw her, shortly after the girls were trapped in a house fire. And considering Aria (Lucy Hale) and Emily (Shay Mitchell) were willing to believe them, I’m thinking it might have actually been her!
Aria & Ezra Break Up — Again!
I know it feels like Aria and Ezra (Ian Harding) reach their emotional breaking points every week — and, to be fair, maybe they really do — but this time, their breakup felt real. Ezra needed the substitute teaching position, and the only way he could do it was if he stopped seeing Aria for good.
“I love you just as much as I always have, and that’s why I want you to take this job,” she told him through tears.
“I love you,” he replied. More tears.
This might have been Ezria’s saddest weekly breakup yet! I wonder if their breakup on the fourth season premiere this June will be even sadder.
Toby Is Alive!
Remember when Spencer found that body in the woods and thought it was Toby (Keegan Allen)? Then the police found that same body in the woods, and the girls agreed it was Toby? Well, apparently they were all wrong, because Toby showed his pretty little face this week during a diner meet-up with Mona. Only it wasn’t Mona — it was Spencer!
The newly reunited — and totally alive — “Spoby” retreated to a nearby motel, where they did the only thing we really want “Spoby” to ever do: They humped like bunnies! And yes, they took their black hoodies off. Let’s not be crazy now.
Later, when the girls ambushed Mona, Toby helped Spencer escape the house before it was set on fire. But a chance meeting in the woods left him unconscious, and holding the lighter that started the fire! Something tells me there’ll be more juvenile hall — but hopefully less do-rags — in Toby’s future.
What’s In The Trunk?
I’m still not sure where Jenna (Tammin Sursok) has been all this time, but she returned to Rosewood this week — and she brought friends! Throughout the course of the episode, it was revealed that she has strong connections to Shana (Aeriel Miranda) and Melissa (Torrey DeVitto). To make things even more complicated, the girls all have ties to Detective Wilden (Bryce Johnson), as well!
At the end of the episode — after all the red-coat madness — the girls found Wilden’s car, recently pulled from the lake. Along with the footage of Hanna’s mom hitting Wilden with her car, there was also footage of Jenna and Shana retrieving his body from the scene of the crime!
And when the girls got yet another mysterious text from “A,” they popped the trunk to discover… well, we don’t know yet. That’s one revelation they’re saving for the fourth season premiere this June.
HollywoodLifers, what did we all just witness?! Do you think Alison is really alive? Are Jenna, Melissa and that no-good Shana really working with Wilden? And what the heck is in the trunk?! Drop me a comment with your best theories, because honestly, I’m fresh out.
The stars of ‘Twilight’ author Stephanie Meyer’s next big love story, including Saoirse Ronan and Jake Abel, are preparing to make their way down the red carpet in Hollywood for the Mar. 19 world premiere of ‘The Host’ beginning at 9:30pm ET!
With Stephanie Meyer‘s Twilight Saga sadly a thing of the past, it’s time to get excited about the next great love story in the author’s repertoire — The Host! The film adaptation of Stephanie’s book, starring Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons, and Diane Kruger has its world premiere at Hollywood’s famed Cinerama Dome on Mar. 19, with the red carpet being streamed live to fans unavailable to attend the premiere in person!
The live stream, being hosted by Celebuzz.com’s Hyla and Michelle Marie, will catch each star as they make their way down the red carpet. Fans who tune into the live show will have the chance to have their questions answered by the cast live on-air and be entered to win prizes by tweeting to @Celebuzz using the hashtag #TheHostLive!
The Stars Of ‘The Host’ Don’t Want To Be Compared To ‘Twilight’
While The Host is written by the same author as Twilight, some of its stars aren’t so quick to welcome comparisons between the two! "It is a very lazy comparison, because Twilight was a phenomenon unto itself," Max told VMAN. "[Robert]Pattinson was chased down the streets of Paris before the films even came out. And he is doing well for himself. He has about five films with acclaimed directors lined up."
While Jake similarly doesn’t want to be compared to the leading men of Twilight, he’s not out to knock them either.
"A lot of people expect us to knock the Twilight cast," Jake said. "But Taylor Lautner is a really nice kid. Robert Pattinson, I couldn't imagine the tremendous amount of pressure he was under — and he earned my respect when I saw him fight for certain projects. Water For Elephants is a great novel, the movie is what it was. That's not his fault. That's the risk; we're the face of projects."
Are you excited to see The Host when it premieres in theaters on Mar. 29, HollywoodLifers?
It’s been a long time since Kristen and Robert have seen each other, but it’s only a matter of time before the two will hopefully be reunited. If Kristen wants this relationship to work, it’s vital that she takes a step back and let Rob have some freedom when he returns home.
Kristen Stewart has been patiently waiting for Robert Pattinson‘s return from Australia, where he just finished filmingThe Rover. Even though Kristen will want to spend as much time as possible with Rob when he gets back, she must continue to be cool as a cucumber if she wants their relationship to succeed.
Are Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson Getting Back Together?
Kristen has done an amazing job of giving Rob his space while he was working on his film in Australia. She could have easily jumped on an airplane and visited him, but she took the high road and respected his desire to be left alone so he could concentrate on his work, and clear his head.
Kristen Stewart’ Big Plans For Robert Pattinson’s Return
As we previously reported, Kristen is planning on making Rob’s return ultra special with a welcome home party. According to a good friend, "Kristen is beyond excited that Rob is coming back to LA soon and she's planning to make his return extra special. She will do something mellow at the house and invite their close friends. In the past, they have had get togethers where they play music, hang out, eat and just have fun."
"If its warm enough they can all hang out by the pool and of course the dogs will be included. Apparently Rob really misses 'his babies' and Kristen knows this. She is super eager to see him. It's been a really long time. Absence makes the heart grow fonder."
While this sounds like a wonderful way to welcome Rob home, it’s crucial that Kristen continue to respect Rob’s need for space. Remember, he has been used to his freedom for the last two plus months and the last thing he wants to feel when he gets home is stress and pressure!
Kristen — Lean On Your Friends If You Feel Clingy
Kristen, instead of focusing ALL of your attention on Rob and getting back together when he returns, make sure to spend time with your close friends that you leaned on during his absence like Taylor Lautner and Scout Taylor-Compton. If you smother Rob, it will only makes him want to get away from you. So turn to your family and friends if you start feeling extra needy and clingy — which is nothing to feel ashamed of. Do things that make you feel happy, like listening to music or going to the batting cages.
You and Rob are first and foremost best friends, so have fun with each other, be silly and laugh. Bond over your adorable doggies, Bear and Bernie, and take time to really listen to Rob. Be honest and speak from your heart and most of all –like your mom has told you– live in the moment.
Kristen, you deserve to be happy and in love, and we all hope you and Rob have a fabulous reunion!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for Kristen & Rob to see each other after all this time?

Kim’s aunt said that Kim will get a tummy tuck after giving birth but a top plastic surgeon advises that Kim wait before she undergoes a big procedure like that! Plus, find out what Kanye thinks about all of this!
Kim Kardashian wants to go under the knife! We told you that Kim’s aunt Joan Kardashian spoke with Toronto’s Now magazine and said that Kim’s tummy tuck will take care of all of her “weight fears” and now HollywoodLife.com can tell you what top NYC plastic surgeon Adam Schaffner thinks about all of this!
Why Kim Should Wait Before Having A Tummy Tuck
Adam tells us. “In my opinion, birth should be about giving birth. I recommend waiting six months after the delivery date or after breast-feeding has concluded before undergoing any procedures to restore one’s body shape. Certainly, one may consider consulting with a plastic surgeon before this time to discuss concerns and explore available options.”
What Kim’s Aunt Says About The Tummy Tuck
Kim’s aunt Joan says: “[Kim Kardashian] can have a tummy tuck, which will take care of most of her weight fears. Other than her belly, which is rather flat, every other part of her body has ballooned. And this is Kim holding to a strict diet. Imagine if she let herself go? The family's trying to convince Kim to relax and worry about losing the weight months from now.”
What Kanye Thinks About Kim’s Tummy Tuck Plans
In insider tells HollywoodLife.com: “Kanye likes her just the way she is. Besides, Kanye ain’t controlling but he would be in this situation. That’s something he’s against like for real for real. He don’t want Kim to be doing that sh*t, you know that’s what took his mom’s back in the day so he definitely don’t want Kim do be f**king around like that.”
John and Katy have called it quits once again, according to a new report! Could this time be for good? Read on for all the details.
John Mayer and Katy Perry‘s relationship seemed to be going so well, which is why a new report from Us Weekly is all the more distressing. The two, who’ve been dating since summer 2012, have reportedly split up for the second time in their courtship!
John Mayer & Katy Perry Split — For Good?
The magazine claims to have confirmation of the split from multiple sources. “It’s sad,” one source tells the publication, but adds that this might not be a permanent split. “It’s not over until it’s over. You have to see how things play out.”
This isn’t the first time that John, 35, and Katy, 28, have taken a break from one another. They briefly split in August of 2012 before getting back together the next month.
John & Katy’s Busy Schedules
Another source tells the magazine that Katy isn’t ready to be done for good, adding that the busyness of their careers at the current moment is a factor in the split. “She’s leaving the window open. They have both been so focused on work.”
Us reports that Katy has been busy in the studio in Los Angeles, working on her third album, while John, who has been recuperating from some intense vocal issues and throat surgery last year, is preparing for an upcoming tour and a live Google Hangout chat scheduled to take place on Mar. 21.
Katy & John In Happier Times
After reconciling for the first time in September, the couple seemed to be growing more serious. They attended several A-list events together as a couple, and John even gushed about Katy during an interview with 60 Minutes in January. Things seemed good between the two as recent as Mar. 2, when Katy tweeted, “My boyfriend is taking me to a kitten shelter in his truck.” How could things have fallen apart so quickly?
HollywoodLife.com has reached out to reps for both John and Katy for comment. We are still awaiting reply.
Do you think John and Katy have broken up for good, HollywoodLifers?
Think Selena might be feeling guilty for dissing Justin on ‘The Late Show’? Think again! Selena ‘loved’ dissing him, because she finally feels she has outreached his success.
Selena Gomez is taking no prisoners! Selena turned heads when she joked about making her ex Justin Bieber ”cry” with David Letterman on The Late Show on March 18, and turns out the Disney princess is super proud of her spectacular diss! She feels sorry for Justin because he has become “less popular”, while she is “on top of the world.” Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details.
Selena Gomez Loved Dissing Justin Bieber On ‘The Late Show’
“Selena loved dissing Justin during Letterman,” a source close to Selena exclusively tells HollywoodLife.com. “She feels great these days, because she looks hot, and has a hot new movie Spring Breakers out, and she has had great success with the The Wizards Return. Everyone is rallying around her.”
There is no question that Selena is having a career high! The Wizards Return was the highest rated show on cable TV this year in it’s age group, while Spring Breakers is off to a promising start ahead of it’s March 22 release.
The source adds that Selena finally feels like she has become more successful than Justin, who is going through a tough time lately.

No matter where this actress goes, she never fails to look elegant — and that’s exactly what she did at the London premiere! The brunette beauty kept up her reputation in her latest glam gown.
Rosario Dawson attended the UK premiere of Danny Boyle’s new film, Trance on March 19. The stars gathered about the red carpet at the Odeon West End in London, but Rosario really stole the spotlight. We’re accustomed to being stunned by her floor-length gowns, but this one really wowed us — she totally stole the spotlight!
The actress donned a gown by British designer Jenny Packham. The deep crimson gown was covered in sequins and beads that dazzled with her every move. It’s tough to wear a red dress and not blend into the carpet, but this star didn’t have to worry about that. It was a task to focus our eyes on anything but the gown! She looked just like a vision in the flawless ensemble. The exquisite gown hugged her perfect curves while her short sleeves draped down the back of the dress. A rounded neck was a classy touch to the eye-catching ensemble.
The Men in Black II star’s bronze skin and dark hair looked flawless against the pop of red. Her face was relatively bare, aside from the nude gloss on her lips. She finished off the glimmering outfit with a matching red statement ring and a pair of gold drop earrings.
Rosario is certainly not the first to stand out in the spotlight with a Jenny Packham frock. The designer has also dressed some of our fave fashionistas including Kate Middleton, 31, and Angelina Jolie, 37.
Do you LOVE Rosario’s look as much as we do? Or is it a little too flashy for someone who usually appears so timeless? Comment below and don’t forget to VOTE on your decision!
