Tracy Morgan has been released from rehabilitation and will continue his recovery at home. The news comes just after the comedian and 3 others filed a lawsuit against Walmart Stores, Inc. after he suffered multiple injuries in a crash June 7th when his limo was struck by an 18-wheeler on the New Jersey Turnpike. The accident also left his friend and comedian James McNair (aka “Jimmy Mack”) dead. The suit claims Walmart was negligent when its tractor trailer driver Kevin Roper struck Morgan’s limo while driving 20 miles above the speed limit. The documents state Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours when the incident occurred and Walmart should have known the driver’s hours violated federal laws aimed at preventing fatigue.

Word is Angelina Jolie has been spending a whopping $15,000 per year on something called “raindrop facials”. Reportedly she visits Dr. David Colbert every month for a “triad facial” laser treatment in order to help maintain her youthful looks and glowing complexion. The doctor revealed, “People call it a facial but it is actually a non-invasive laser treatment. First we prep skin with microdermabrasion so the laser penetrates better. Then we use a laser, which feels like warm raindrops on the skin. After that, we do a lavender acid exfoliation, then apply gentle wave lights. The treatment takes about 35 minutes for the face or an hour for the whole body — we usually treat the arms and legs, the bits that will be on show.”
