TROUBLE FOR EX-TITAN

Former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck spent some time Saturday night in the hoosegow after an apparant altercation with a cab driver. The driver, Habib Hashi, said Bulluck became enraged when told the cab was already taken and swiped $100 bucks from his hand and choked him. In a statement, Bulluck hints it didn't happen exactly like that. Court records show that the driver, Hashi, has been convicted in the past for filing a false accident report. Keith Bulluck played for the Titans for ten seasons.

MTV VMA

MTV handed out it's Video Music Awards last night, even though they don't play videos or music anymore. Among the highlights: Lady Gaga looking completely normal--people were shocked--and of course, a quick reunion of dreamy boy-band N-Sync. The boys sang a bit of "Bye Bye Bye" before Timberlake did a batch of his solo hits. He won video of the year for "Mirrors." Katy Perry sang under the Brooklyn Bridge, and Miley Cyrus did "Blurred Lines" with Robin Thicke, wore very little and twerked herself silly.

MOMMY, MY CEREAL IS SCARING ME

Remember when breakfast was scary? And we're not talking mama's overcooked rock-hard biscuits. In time for the Halloween season, General Mills is bringing back Fruity Yummy Mummy and Fruite Brute for a limited time; they both we're discontinued in 1992. They join Frankenberry, Boo Berry and Count Chocula which are still around. All five will receive updated box art to reflect a more modern cartoon style, but Target will carry the original 1970's artwork. Plan on seeing those up for sale soon on Ebay.

WHY SOME CELEBRITIES ARE THE WAY THEY ARE

It may not just be fame and money that makes your favorite celebrebities go all goofy. Scientists have found a link between creativity and mental illness. This would help explain the decline of many a former child star. Studies show one in four American adults are suffering from some type of mental health disorder and research shows that on average, celebrities die at the age of 58, compared to an average of 72 years old for other Americans. Betty White must be the most well-adjusted woman in TV history.
