Grammy? Never Say Never…

A $35,000 surveillance video? Mark Cuban finds Charlie Sheen interesting? And there are only two documentaries that have made more money than Never Say Never. Find out all about this and more in today’s Hizziewood Hizzle!
Kamofie & Company, the jewelry store where Lindsay allegedly stole that $2,500 necklace has sold the surveillance video for $35,000. They sold it to the Associated Press, which then licensed it to “Entertainment Tonight” and they will be running it on tonight’s show. Sources say Kamofie was afraid that if the tape got out before they could close a deal, it could have killed their chances of selling it. A rep for Kamofie & Company has come up with the unlikely excuse that the Lindsay Lohan case has caused damage to their business so they sold the video to break even. The rep claims the $35,000 won’t even cover the store’s loss. Meanwhile, Lindsay is due back in court on Thursday and this is where Lindsay decides whether she fights this thing in court, or if she takes a deal. And remember the judge already told her that if she takes a deal, she WILL do time. Most “sources” are in agreement that the judge will want a minimum of three months, but Lindsay would probably only do about 20% of her sentence due to prison overcrowding, which turns three months into 18 days. That still might be more than Lindsay is willing to do.
Kate Middleton’s wedding dress designer is Alexander McQueen’s creative director, Sarah Burton, according to reports in British newspapers. While McQueen officials are denying, which they would do even if it were true — sources told the UK’s Telegraph that Burton has been chosen for her discretion, talent, and quirky, feminine take on elegance. Middleton has made it clear her dress designer is to remain a closely-guarded state secret until her wedding day, so she can surprise her fiancé as she walks down the long, dramatic Westminster Abbey aisle. Last week, St. James Palace announced the highly-anticipated dress details would be released first on its own Web site, The Royal Wedding.
Billionaire Mark Cuban and his HDNet television network have begun negotiations with Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen. Cuban, who is also the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, told RadarOnline.com via email Friday that it is “True” he is in talks with the 45-year-old actor for a show on his program HDNet. Cuban added “It would be a great show. Can’t really say anything beyond that at this point.” The pair has been in discussions for at least a week. When asked if he was still a bankable star, Sheen said: “I absolutely am. Absolutely I am. Look at the value of my show. Look at what it’s costing them when they shut it down. I mean come on, the scoreboard doesn’t lie.” Sheen would become the biggest name on the fledgling network, joining former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather in Cuban’s stable of stars.
Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never”, which counts as a documentary is now the third- highest grossing documentary of all time. So far, it’s made $68.9 million after its first four weeks in theaters. It’s behind Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11″, which made $119 million… and “March of the Penguins”, which made more than $77 million. “Never Say Never” did take one record away from “Fahrenheit 9/11″ … best opening weekend for a documentary. Justin opened with $29.5 million, while “Fahrenheit” took in $23 million. What’s even more crazy than that is The “Hollywood Reporter” says that people were actually buzzing about “Never Say Never” at various Academy Awards after-parties. In other words, Justin’s movie could be up for an Oscar next year.
