This is just so incredibly sad.
Deborah Raffin, who got her start as an actress in the mid-'70s in movies like Once Is Not Enough and 40 Carats, but is probably better known now as Aunt Julie on 7th Heaven, passed away last Wednesday at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in El Lay after suffering from leukemia for over a year.
The 59-year-old also launched an audiobook business with her ex-husband Michael Viner, and was also featured in episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, ER, and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
We can't even begin to process how difficult it must be to lose someone that young to such an awful disease.
Our thoughts go to her friends, family, and loved ones during this impossibly devastating time.
May she R.I.P.

Step aside, Snooki Snickers! There's a new master of the written word named Bristol Palin, and she's ready to take the literary world by storm!
That's right, the former Vice Presidential Candidate's daughter/Dancing With The Stars contestant/Secret Life of the American Teenager special guest star is adding 'published author' to her list of accomplishments, and has signed a deal with William Morrow to publish
her memoir, Not Afraid of Life, which will provide "an inside look at her life."
“Bristol gives readers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life for the first time, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise; from becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with her baby’s father crumbled publicly — not once, but twice. Bristol talks about the highs and lows of her appearance on ABC-TV’s ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ including the aching hours of practice, the biting criticisms, and the thrill of getting to the show’s finals. She speaks candidly of her aspirations for the future and the deep religious faith that gives her strength and inspiration. Plainspoken and disarmingly down to earth, Bristol offers new insight and understanding of who she is and what she values most.”
Ha! We don't think we've ever heard someone's writing described positively as 'plainspoken,' but there's a first time for everything! Just like becoming famous for getting knocked up while your mom runs for Vice President!

emo serious! Ha!
Check out (above) a clip of Justin Bieber's guest-starring stint on CSI last night as a troubled teen!
We personally think T-Swizzle did a better job when she guest-starred on the show, but he DEFINITELY fares off a lot better than Bristol Palin did on Secret Life of the American Teenager!
What do U think?? Did you like Bieber's performance on CSI??

There is always room in Hollywood to crawl back from obscurity, if you are willing to be knocked down a few pegs!
Hey, so remember that adorable show, 7th Heaven?
Well, its star
Jessica Biel Ashlee Simpson Beverley Mitchell has finally gotten a new gig post-WB days!
Bitch is heading to basic cable! WooHoo!
Beverley has signed up for a role on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Former Lucy Camden will be taking over for
Blossom Mayim Bialik as the school's counselor.

Bristol Palin said that acting is not in her future after her guest starring role on The Secret Life of the American Teenager and we think that's best. Bristol explains:
“I was definitely nervous [shooting my scenes]. This is intimidating. I had a great time. But, I wasn’t that prepared because I started practicing the lines the morning of the shoot. I don’t think I want to do more acting. I don’t think acting is my niche. I don’t want to be an actress."
Good idea! So what else is in Bristol's future besides diaper duty? "I like doing speaking engagements," she says.
We imagine her speeches are so enthralling with that monotone voice of hers!
