Celebrity (Mickey Rourke and Mickey Rooney) news on NewsOK

{/literal}{include file="blk:thedigitaldesk_header"}{literal}

The editors have recently started focusing daily on our Celebrity Watch page.

We’ve started this daily focus because we’ve enhanced this page’s content with articles from Entertainment Tonight and Parade Magazine, as well as The Oklahoman’s articles and our own Gossip blogger – who I also read daily because he can tell me who shares a birthday with my 8-year-old son.

As a result, I’ve been checking out the page more often, and it’s become a favorite stop of mine.

Today, I was pleasantly surprised to see an article about Mickey Rourke on the page. I was so excited that I sent the link in an e-mail to my wife with the subject line, “Mickey Rourke is back!” …. to which she responded, “Is he still alive?

She has not been briefed on the difference between Mickey Rooney and Mickey Rourke.

The point? The Celebrity Watch page should be a daily stop for NewsOK visitors who are interested in world affairs and city government, but will still read about the lives of celebrities (but will never admit in public to watching “The Hills.”)

I know … I don’t watch it either.


I don’t think a wedding in Mexico is legal in the U.S.

But I have no clue what you’re talking about.
