TRACY MORGAN IN INTENSIVE CARE AFTER 6-CAR CRASH

Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan was in intensive care Saturday after the limousine bus he was riding in was involved in a multi-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike, state police said. The vehicle carrying the former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" cast member and six others was involved in a six-vehicle accident on the turnpike near Cranbury Township at about 1 a.m. Saturday, Sgt. First Class Greg Williams said. Yesterday, Morgan underwent an operation on his leg — one of the many bones which were broken in the crash. In a statement, Morgan’s rep says, “While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign.” “He sustained a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He had surgery earlier today on his leg,” says his spokesman. His rep goes on to note, “We expect him to remain in the hospital for several weeks,” adding, “His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

MELANIE GRIFFITH AND ANTONIO BANDERAS SPLIT AS SHE FILES FOR DIVORCE AFTER 18 YEARS OF MARRIAGE CITING IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES

Melanie Griffith has filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas, according to a report from TMZ. The actress, who has reportedly hired power attorney Laura Wasser, has cited irreconcilable differences. The site has legal documents on the filing. No date of separation was listed. The couple, who fell in love on the set of the 1995 film Two Much, have been plagued by split rumors for most of this year. Griffith is asking for child support and sole physical and joint legal custody of their 17-year-old daughter Stella. The Working Girl star is also asking for spousal support.

I’M OFF THE CLOCK”: DAUGHTRY DITCHES FOX & FRIENDS ATTEMPT TO SING “MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE”

Former American Idol finalist Chris Daughtry stepped in a pile of outrage this weekend when he awkwardly ditched a Fox & Friends attempt to sing “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” during the morning show’s after-show. Friday morning was the 70th anniversary of the D-Day attacks, and so F&F host Steve Doocy suggested Daughtry (whose band was off-stage) sing a patriotic tune with the hosts, including Anna Kooiman, Clayton Morris, and Heather Childers. Caught off-guard by the request, Daughtry joked that he is “off the clock,” which prompted some laughter and then an awkward pause in which the hosts fiddled around and seemingly tried to figure out what to do with themselves. Childers grabbed a tambourine and declared it time to sing “My Country,” with Kooiman on lead. Daughtry turned to leave, telling the co-hosts they’ve “opened a can of worms,” and that “this is where I bail.” After considerable backlash, Daughtry took to his YouTube page to apologize, explaining that he was caught unprepared by the “patriotic song” request and was worried that had he messed up the lyrics or sang poorly, there would be even worse backlash than the one he faces now.
