• Nick Cannon, the actor/singer best known as Mr. Mariah Carey, has been hospitalized in Aspen, Colo., for what his wife described as “mild kidney failure” on her Web site Wednesday (with a photo of the two cuddling in his sickbed). His rep confirmed to AP that the 31-year-old is still in the hospital.
• One month later, the nation remains deeply divided on the Alec Baldwin air-travel etiquette issue. The Wegmans grocery store chain announced Tuesday it had yanked TV ads starring the actor after complaints about the Dec. 6 incident in which he berated an American Airlines flight attendant who told him to stop playing computer games before takeoff. But on Wednesday, the company changed course and restored the ads to the airwaves after being inundated with “hundreds and hundreds” of messages defending the “30 Rock” star, reports AP. “Clearly, many more people support Alec,” the chain said in a statement.
