Mama Winehouse?

Before her death last week, Amy Winehouse was reportedly in the process of adopting a 10-year-old girl from St. Lucia, where she’d spent much of 2009, according to the Daily Mirror. “Amy was already my mother,” the girl, Dannika Augustine, says. “I would call her Mum, and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me, and we had fun together. I loved her, and she loved me.”

Charlie Sheen overseas


Charlie Sheen
has reportedly signed a deal to appear on “Celebrity Big Brother” in the U.K., according to the Daily Star. A source says Sheen will be flying to England in the next two weeks for filming after inking a $9.8 million deal.

A ‘Twilight’ twosome

“Twilight” co-stars Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene are reportedly looking to save some money by sharing a New York apartment. “We are talking about maybe trying to find a two-bedroom,” Greene tells Hollyscoop of the pair’s plans. Greene already wants to set some boundaries. “I think the rule is don’t bring anybody home, ever,” she says.   

Rodriguez and Diaz still on

Despite breakup rumors, relations appear fine between Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz, according to People magazine. Sources spotted the pair dining out in Miami over the weekend to celebrate the Yankee slugger’s 36th birthday after cruising around the area on a yacht.
