LAS VEGAS (AP) - The audience at the Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas knew something was seriously wrong when they heard the cries of the cast after one of the performers fell 50 feet. One member of the audience told the Las Vegas Sun that the woman was being pulled up by a wire when she fell into an open pit below. He says he could hear "screaming, then groaning." The woman had been an acrobatic performer for more than 20 years. She had two kids. The show "Ka" has been canceled until further notice.
NEW YORK (AP) - If things go well, the Velvet Teddy Bear will be a lot smaller. People.com says Ruben Studdard will be on the next season of "The Biggest Loser." He's lost weight before. One time he dropped 70 pounds, but he started gaining it back after he got divorced. He says his family has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes and heart problems. He says if he doesn't "fix things now," he'll be in trouble.
