Brandon Marshall Admits: I Have Borderline Personality Disorder

Brandon Marshall is an immensely talented wide receiver whose personal life and off-the-field antics have often drawn more attention that his touchdown grabs or third down conversions. But now we know why: the All-Pro sat for 30 minutes with reporters after practice yesterday and said he was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder earlier this year. “For so long, I’ve been just trying to get help. I’ve been seeking help,” Marshall said. “I’ve been talking with doctors since I’ve been in the NFL. No one has ever helped me. So I was praying there was a treatment out there for what I suffered from and there was.” Said Mary Zanarini – the professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School who treated Marshall this summer – to The South Florida Sun- Sentinel : “BPD is a well understood psychological disorder. It’s not a form of misbehavior.” Marshall said he plans to lobby Congress for funds to assist research into the disease, adding: “There comes a time in a guy like myself’s life, with everything that I’ve been through, that you become bulletproof to the critics and to what the world thinks of you. Right now, today, I am vulnerable. I am making myself vulnerable. And I want it to be clear that this is the opposite of damage control. The only reason why I’m standing here today is to use my story to help others who may suffer from what I suffer from.” Most importantly, how should this admission affect Marshall’s status in your fantasy football draft? It’s not nearly as troublesome as the fact that Chad Henne is his quarterback. He probably shouldn’t be higher than your second wide receiver, at best. [Photo: WENN.com]

Casey Anthony Ordered Back to Orlando; Must Report to Probation Officer

People can soon stop asking ” Where is Casey Anthony ?” The acquitted murder suspect went into hiding after her July 17 release, with people speculation that she was everywhere from California to the Bahamas. Thanks to a judge’s order, however, Anthony soon will return to her native Orlando, Fla., within the next three days to report to a local probation office. Orange County Judge Stan Strickland signed court documents requiring Anthony to serve a year of supervised probation on her check fraud charges. “She should report to probation, probably within 72 hours,” Strickland said . Last year, Srickland sentenced Anthony – then awaiting trial for murder – on charges that she stole a friend’s checkbook and forged several checks. Last week, he said he intended for Anthony to go to supervised probation upon her release. Department of Corrections officials misinterpreted that order. Believing that Casey Anthony had served her probation while in jail, her lawyers did not have her report to probation. That’s what she must do this week. It is unclear where Anthony will stay when she returns to Orlando, but you can bet there will be police officers protecting her at every turn. Anthony, who has received myriad threats since she got out of jail, where she spent nearly 1,000 days since 2008, has said through her legal team that she will be undergoing major mental health treatment .

Jenelle Evans Gets Tattoo of Son’s Name

Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans hit up a parlor on Hollywood Boulevard Sunday night and got a tattoo bearing her son’s name, Jace, on her wrist. After a trip to McDonald’s, the troubled North Carolina native, 19, decided to get some ink. Evans was later snapped with pals, rocking the tat. The train wreck should have gotten 8/24 and 9/9 tattooed on her wrists instead. Those are the next two court dates she has to look forward to. Jenelle Evans looking baked out of her gourd as usual . Later this month, Jenelle faces a hearing for her alleged probation violation. Reports say Evans tested positive for THC in mid-July, having smoked the weed. In September, she’ll be in court for her assault on Britany Truett . Maybe instead of getting a tattoo to show how much she supposedly loves Jace, she should actually get her $h!t together and act like a good parent. Just a suggestion. Moron.

The Voice to Return After Super Bowl XLVI

NBC is bringing back The Voice after Super Bowl XLVI on February 5. Following a successful first season of the singing competition won by Javier Colon , the network began plans for a second campaign almost immediately. Reports that it would follow NBC’s presentation of the Super Bowl surfaced last month. Now the Peacock has confirmed the season premiere schedule. With its entertaining interplay between four big-name judges, unusual format and array of talent, the program became a sleeper hit for NBC this spring. The Voice will air for one hour after the Super Bowl on February 5, 2012, then return for a two-hour episode the next night (Monday), according to EW . That will lead into the season premiere of the musical drama Smash .

Parents Televison Council is Hopping Mad about The Playboy Club

NBC’s racy retro drama The Playboy Club has yet to hit airwaves, but that isn’t stopping the killjoys at the Parents Television Council from protesting it. The watchdog organization, which was also the driving force behind the 2004 “Nipplegate” Super Bowl controversy , recently sent a letter to every NBC local affiliate urging them to boycott the series. In its letter, the PTC slams The Playboy Club for “glamorizing porn,” citing (unnamed and unverifiable) studies saying that pornography causes divorce, depression, financial ruin, and the general downfall of Western civilization. It then states that the PTC will be “very carefully reviewing each episode and will urge its members to file complaints” and offers this thinly veiled threat to affiliates who air the series: Please be mindful that it is the affiliate, not the network, that will ultimately bear the financial burden of an FCC fine should any of the content be found to violate broadcast decency laws. Never mind that, as a primetime series on a major network, the odds that The Playboy Club will actually contain nudity are infinitesimally slim. NBC’s Salt Lake City affiliate has already rejected the program, though it remains to be seen if other local stations will follow suit. Poor Playboy Club – too racy for Middle America, not racy enough for Mr. Skin. Is the Amber Heard star vehicle doomed before it even airs? Will you be tuning in this fall? Let us know in the comments!

‘Madden NFL 12′: Rosters, Stats Updated, But Not Rules

Now that NFL lockout has ended, EA ‘able to flip the switch on roster updates pretty easily,’ rep says. By Russ Frushtick Madden NFL 12 Photo: EA Sports What would the world be like without football? Thankfully, fans needn’t concern themselves with such a horrible scenario (at least for another 10 years), as NFL owners and the NFL Players Association came to an agreement to end a months-long standoff that might have cancelled the 2011-2012 season. Because the lockout ended early enough, there will be no impact on the season itself, but what about this year’s installment of “Madden”? “Madden NFL 12″ is scheduled to be released in about a month, but video games are often finalized months before they hit store shelves. Does that mean anyone who buys “Madden” will be playing with out-of-date rosters from before the lockout was even settled? Anthony Stevenson, the director of marketing for “Madden NFL 12,” discussed how the development team is planning to keep everything up-to-date for fans. “From the game’s standpoint, what everyone wants to know is rosters,” he said. “You’re taking what historically would be five months of offseason activity and you’re condensing it into what would be as little as two to three weeks. So, there are going to be a lot of roster moves. And these aren’t inconsequential moves: There’s Donovan McNabb, Kevin Kolb; these are moves that could shape a division. But we’re fortunate that we’re able to flip the switch on roster updates pretty easily.” Mike Young, the game’s creative director, confirmed that the rosters would be up-to-date not only at the beginning of the season, but also straight on through to the Super Bowl. “Our ratings people and our roster guys are going to be really, really busy,” he said. “Day one, anybody with an online connection is going to have all these moves and up-to-date rosters. All season long, we’ll support that really well.” Young confirmed that while the rosters and player stats will be up-to-date, EA won’t be able to implement all of the just-agreed-upon rules. “Some of the new rules we will not get in the game this year. Unfortunately, [the end of the lockout] happened too late,” he explained. “It’s kind of a complicated system to change with something like a patch.” As for which new rules didn’t make the cut, Young revealed, “The rookie cap stuff, a lot of the business part of football. So your Franchise mode will be using last year’s rules for another year. That was the only disappointment. But, as far as rosters, I think we’re the best at having those up-to-date.” Those roster updates will require an Internet connection for your console. If you don’t have your console hooked up to the Internet, Young suggested taking advantage of nearby gamers. “Take it over to your friend’s house, plug it in,” he recommended. “There are a lot of free trials for Xbox Live and PSN [PlayStation Network] is free. Update your game, save it to your hard drive, and bring it home. You need the rosters!” Certainly, fans who are just thrilled to have an NFL season will consider updated rosters the cherry on top. Check out the Multiplayer blog , updated daily, for even more on “Madden NFL 12″ and other gaming coverage.

Farrah Abraham to Appear on Charlie’s Angels Remake?

Could Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham be making the jump to scripted TV? The 20-year-old single mom auditioned for a part in ABC’s new Charlie’s Angels reboot, and according to her Twitter page, she got the gig! “YAY!!! I MET GREAT people at a casting. & im going to be in the New Charlie Angels movie! Good luck to the other amazing Casties icon smile Farrah Abraham to Appear on Charlies Angels Remake? ,” she blogged Sunday, mixing up the fact that the reboot will be on TV and not the big screen. The ABC series — starring Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachael Taylor — held an open casting call Sunday near Abraham’s Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. home. However, the call was to fill paid extra roles, rather than main character slots. The Miami Herald reports 1,000 locals turned up to the casting call for the revival of the 70s series, set to premiere September 22. Reached for comment by E! Online, the network confirmed that Abraham applied for a spot, but declined to comment further. http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/07/17/2318356/local-casting-call-for-charlies.html
