Russell Brand Spices Up His Love Life With Geri Halliwell

YES! YES! YES! Russell Brand has found himself a new pop star to be his lover! According to multiple reports, the British comic has ended his relationship with yoga instructor Isabella Brewster and is now getting serious with none other than Spice Girl Geri Halliwell!!

Our insiders reveal:

“Things are getting very serious between them — they’re a proper couple now. They had met several times in the past, but really got to know each other during the Olympics. People thought Russell was joking at the time, when he said he had a crush on Geri all over again, but it was true. They just clicked — they have so much in common. They’ve exactly the same sense of humour and are serious about clean living.”


It sounds like Russ is doing this right. He became Geri’s friend before her lover, which — from what we understand — is what she really, really wanted. HA! According to his pals, the comic is totally changing his schedule to spend time with the single mom.

EKK! We couldn’t have dreamed up a better couple if we had tired! We only wish this news didn’t come during such a hard time for the ex-Mrs. Brand…

George Lindsey ‘Goober Pyle’ Dies At 83

George Lindsey, who spent nearly 30 years as the grinning Goober on “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Hee Haw,” has died. He was 83.

A press release from Marshall-Donnelly-Combs Funeral Home in Nashville said Lindsay died early Sunday morning after a brief illness. Funeral arrangements were still being made.

Lindsey was the beanie-wearing Goober on “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1964 to 1968 and its successor, “Mayberry RFD,” from 1968 to 1971. He played the same jovial character — a service station attendant — on “Hee Haw” from 1971 until it went out of production in 1993. He joined “The Andy Griffith Show” in 1964 when Jim Nabors, portraying Gomer Pyle, left the program. Goober Pyle, who had been mentioned on the show as Gomer’s cousin, thus replaced him.


Although he was best known as Goober, Lindsey had other roles during a long TV career. Earlier, he often was a “heavy” and once shot Matt Dillon on “Gunsmoke.” His other TV credits included roles on “M(asterisk)A(asterisk)S(asterisk)H,” ”The Wonderful World of Disney,” ”CHIPs,” ”The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour,” ”The Real McCoys,” ”Rifleman,” ”The Alfred Hitchcock Hour,” ”Twilight Zone” and “Love American Style.”

He had movie roles, too, appearing in “Cannonball Run II” and “Take This Job and Shove It.” His voice was used in animated Walt Disney features including “The Aristocats,” ”The Rescuers” and “Robin Hood.”

Lindsey devoted much of his spare time to raising funds for the Alabama Special Olympics. For 17 years, he sponsored a celebrity golf tournament in Montgomery, Ala., that raised money for the mentally disabled. The University of North Alabama awarded him an honorary doctorate in 1992, and he was affectionately called “Doctor Goober” by acquaintances after that.
