Celeb Pulse: Paris Hilton Saves Sick Man’s Life

Plus: LeAnn Rimes tweets about her teeth, a Glee star goes vegan, Jenna Fischer on post-preggo pounds, and more.

Paris Hilton Saves a Sick Man’s Life. The celebutante has a heart, after all! Hilton hit it off with Mike Oliveri, who has muscular dystrophy, at an L.A. nightclub in early July. Oliveri mentioned how he struggles to afford his healthcare bills. Their convo must have struck a chord with Hilton—next thing you know, Oliveri received $5,000 in the mail from Hilton to help him cover the costs of medication and treatment. Sure, to Hilton, dolling out five grand isn’t a big deal, but in a video he posted on YouTube, the guy said that she had literally saved his life. [OK! Magazine]

LeAnn Rimes Has Dental Emergency, Whole World Knows About It. The country singer took to Twitter last week in the midst of a dental emergency: The pain was so bad that she needed a root canal on the spot. Rimes mercilessly included her 300,000 followers in her pre and post surgery angst. Here’s a highlight: “O-M-G i got 3 shots in the roof of my mouth & 1 INSANE shot directly into the half dead half ALIVE nerve through the hole he drilled on the backside of my tooth.” [People]

Glee‘s Lea Michele Goes Vegan … Or Not. To go vegan or not to go vegan—that is the question the real life Rachel Berry seems to be asking herself a lot. The starlet told Shape that she’s been a vegetarian for years, but goes “back and forth between [being a vegan and not being a vegan].” Her diet apparently helps her maintain her tiny size-2 waste, but all the hiking, dancing and biking she does helps, too.

The Office’s Jenna Fischer Is a “Regular Mom.” In a very un-Beyonce move, Jenna Fischer (a.k.a. Pam on the Office) says she didn’t have a personal trainer or personal chef to help whip her into shape after her son, Weston, was born. In fact, she didn’t start trying to lose the post-pregnancy weight until six months after his birthday, when he was finally taking regular naps. She says she lost the weight “slow and moderately.” Well done, Jenna! [People]

Pink Eye Can’t Stop Olympian Kerri Walsh. She and Misty May-Treanor have been dubbed the greatest beach volleyball team of all time, and they’re living up to that name. They have 30 consecutive set wins in Olympic competition and are currently en route to third Olympic gold in London. On Tuesday, Walsh told concerned reporters that the conjunctivitis was “super minor … it looks worse than it is.” Apparently her husband, who travelled with her to the Games, has it worse than her: “It looks like his eyeballs got their butts kicked,” she said. Eek. At least Walsh is still winning. Perhaps playing with gross gunk in your eyes is the key to gold? [Yahoo]
