Beyoncé’s beverage brand.
She’s back! Singer/actress/designer Beyoncé Knowles (“Dreamgirls”) has reportedly signed a $50-million multi-year endorsement deal with cola giant Pepsi’s ‘Live for Now’ campaign, that will see her in TV commercials, various promotional spots and as the face of a limited edition Pepsi can to debut early next year. The good people at Pepsi also reportedly sweetened the pot with a promise to invest in and collaborate with Knowles in her future creative projects. The carbonated contract comes at a keen time for the busy mother of baby Blue Ivy, and wife of rapper Jay-Z as she is slated to perform at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show in early February and also has a new as-yet unnamed album next year. In a statement to the New York Times, a very satisfied Knowles said, “Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve … As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity.” And speaking of creativity, catch this sneak peek of Beyoncé’s new autobiographical documentary which premieres on HBO on February 16 2013.

Stars battling cancer.
While in the middle of making appearances in premiere after premiere of his latest film “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” actor Sir Ian McLellan (“The Lord of the Rings,” “X-men”) recently revealed that he had been diagnosed with a non-threatening form of prostate cancer about seven years ago. The 73-year-old actor also divulged that despite his initial fears, he hasn’t had any treatment for the disease, adding that his frequent check-ups have helped maintain his health and contain the spread of the disease. There’s good news also for TV host Brooke Burke-Charvet (“Dancing with the Stars”), who announced via Twitter that her thyroidectomy surgery to remove her thyroid cancer went very well.

The troubled house of Sheen.
Last week, generous Charlie Sheen (“Anger Management,” “Two and a Half Men”) reportedly donated $75,000 to help the daughter of a police officer who is suffering from Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma (CR). A few weeks ago he told “Entertainment Tonight” that he also gave a reported $100,000 to thankless actress Lindsay Lohan to help her sort out her tax mess. Surely one good turn deserves another. Ex-wife Denise Richards has reportedly agreed to look after Sheen’s twin three-year-old boys with ex-wife Brooke Mueller while she is in rehab – for the nineteenth time – for an addiction to Adderall, an ADHD drug. Mueller reportedly made the decision to try rehab again after she was found unresponsive while taking a nap in her home. Richards shares two daughters with Sheen and has apparently stepped in before to try and maintain some familial order.

Saldanha was the nurse who transferred the prank call made by two Australian radio DJs posing as the Queen. Detectives say Saldanha, who leaves two teenage children and a husband behind, was found with injuries to her wrists and had apparently hung herself with a scarf. She also left behind three suicide notes that detectives are hoping to analyze. Meanwhile the two radio hosts have reportedly said they anguished over Saldanha’s suicide.
