French medics could have saved the life of Princess Diana if they had made different decisions while transporting her to the hospital on the night of her death, a top British surgeon told investigators this week. “When I pick through this with the benefit of hindsight [and ask], ‘Was it recoverable?’ the answer is, ‘Yes, it just about was,’” said Dr. Thomas Treasure. He added, however, that any decisions made under the circumstances are “open to some debate.” An emergency worker who was on the scene said the “incoherent” Diana was so agitated she tore an intravenous drip out of her arm.
 
Bill Nye, former host of Bill Nye the Science Guy, filed for a restraining order against his ex-fiancée after she snuck into his backyard and attempted to poison his vegetable garden. Nye, 52, says he spotted a black-clad Blair Tindall, 47, “carrying two plastic bottles filled with some sort of solvent. Apparently she was trying to poison my plants.” In an official response, Tindall called the incident a “foolish, sophomoric act of poor judgment” prompted by Nye’s “emotional cruelty.” The couple had a wedding ceremony in 2006, less than three months after they met, but Tindall says Nye dumped her after the marriage license was rejected.

Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was arrested at Dublin Airport this week after allegedly launching into a drunken tirade against an airline worker and resisting efforts to calm him down. “I said the wrong thing to the wrong woman at the wrong time,” said the star of The Tudors and Match Point. Last year Rhys Meyers said he had given up drinking because “I want my career.”

A Los Angeles court told Britney Spears last week that she is now forbidden to drive a car with her children inside. The ruling came after TMZ.com posted a video of Spears running a red light and apparently sending a text message while her children slept in their car seats. A court-appointed monitor who had been assigned to keep tabs on Spears was seen bending over in the front seat trying to hide from the camera.
