To recap, earlier this week director Brett Ratner made a hateful, insensitive remark, and then soon thereafter his words were caught on tape.
THEN, Academy president Tom Sherak announced that he would NOT be firing Brett from the Oscars…but the director made the right move and resigned from the show anyway.
In his lengthy letter of apology, Brett mentioned that he was looking forward to working with GLAAD to "increase awareness of the important and troubling issues this episode has raised," and now it appears that GLAAD is taking him up on his offer.

It's about time!
Sources at the Betty Ford Clinic recently revealed that Lindsay Lohan has been spending the two hours of Internet privileges that she is granted on weekends to reach out to former friends - all of whom she cut out when they tried to help her drug addiction - and apologize for her behavior!

It sounds like she's finally taking her rehabilitation seriously! We're thrilled to hear it!
Keep up the good work, bb!

Eddie Murphy and Mel B may have had some hard times in the past, but the former couple have gotten past it because of their 3-year-old child, Angel Iris.
Now that Eddie admits Angel is his daughter, they have no problem being in the same room. Mel B attended a party at the actors house last week. And the reunion was planned by Eddie's ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell.
"Eddie's ex-wife Nicole helped them reconcile their issues. Angel is Eddie's youngest child, and Nicole wants her children to know her. That helped Eddie to come around and get past all the animosity he had towards Mel," divulged an insider.
Mel's hubby Stephen Belafonte and Angel also joined in the festivities, along with Eddie's other seven children and his former girlfriend, Shaun Robinson.
Damn, he's a busy man!
"They've both said some really nasty things about each other to the press. So needless to say, some guests were shocked," continued the insider.
