Apr. 12 - The day's top showbiz news and headlines including Jonathan Winters dies at 87, Lindsay Lohan walks the red carpet, and Madonna gets a reprieve from Malawi's president. Lindsay Claiborn reports.
Jonathan Winters has died. The comedian starred in dozens of TV shows, like "Mork and Mindy," and movies like "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World." He was also a regular on the late night TV show circuit, often appearing on "The Jack Paar Show" and he was a favorite of Johnny Carson. Winters died from natural causes at his California home. He was 87. Better late than never: Lindsay Lohan hit the red carpet in Los Angeles for the premiere of "Scary Movie 5," 40 minutes behind schedule. The actress told media that she was late due to a wardrobe problem, but arrived in seemingly good spirits, taking time to pose for photos with co-star Charlie Sheen. The event was one of Lohan's last scheduled public appearances before she's supposed to report to court-ordered rehab for 90 days. Madonna has gotten a reprieve from Malawi's President Joyce Banda - who said she had no knowledge of a letter reportedly sent from her office criticizing the singer's recent trip to country. Madonna visited a series of schools being built with aid from her foundation, and a governmental letter followed accusing her of exaggerating her contribution to the country and demanding VIP treatment while she was there. Madonna denied the claims. The BBC has reported that although the president did not approve the statement against Madonna, there would be no apology for the mistake.
