A2 THE HAYS DAILY NEWS this & that FRIDAY, JUNE 23,2006 McPhee People m the News 'Idol 1 runner-up threw up LOS ANGELES (AP) — "American Idol" runner-up Katharine McPhee struggled for years with bulimia before seeking help, the singer said in a published interview. At her worst, she would throw up as many as seven times a day, putting her singing career in jeopardy. It was like "putting a sledgehammer to your vocal cords," McPhee told People magazine in an interview published Thursday on its Web site. McPhee, 22, told the magazine she sought help last fall after successfully auditioning for "American Idol." She enrolled in an eating disorder center in Los Angeles and spent three months in therapy. "Growing up in Los Angeles and spending all those years in dance class, I'd been conscious of body image at a young age, and I went through phases of exercising compulsively and starving myself," she said. Now McPhee said she's healthier thanks to the "intuitive eating" approach she learned in therapy. "If you look at a doughnut, people think it's a fattening food. Why?" McPhee said. "Because if you eat it you'll get fat? No, you'll get fat if you eat 10 doughnuts." Shatner to get'Roasted' NEW YORK (AP) — William Shatner has always done an excellent job of poking fun at himself, but he's going to have plenty of help this summer. The 75-year-old actor, who starred as Captain Kirk in "Star Trek," will be the recipient of cheap shots and bawdy jokes — as Pamela Ander- sWi Was last : 'i year — at a Shatner (Comedy Central celebrity, roast in his honor, the channel has announced. "The Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner," scheduled to air Aug. 20 (9 p.m. CDT), will be taped earlier that month in Los Angeles. "It takes a real man to follow Pamela Anderson into the 'Roast' pit and William Shatner is truly a hero among men," said Elizabeth Porter, senior vice president, specials and talent for Comedy Central, in a statement. Sarandon speaks out again TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Susan Sarandon, outspoken actress and liberal political activist, thinks the United States should help build schools in Mexico — not walls along the border. Visiting a preschool in a slum bordering a vast, municipal garbage dump in Tijuana recently, Sarandon said Sarandon education was the key to improving lives in Mexico. She criticized a U.S. congressional proposal to extend walls along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. "I'm very proud, especially with the world careening out of control," she said. "People feel they have no control over their lives. I think this school is helping people to get control over their lives." Singers want more drama NEW YORK (AP) — Another soap opera, another R&B/pop diva. After the announcement that Mary J. Blige will make a cameo on ABC's "One Life to Live" on July 28, the network revealed Thursday that Rihanna, the hot-selling 18-year-old singer, will appear on "All My Children." Rihanna, whose debut album, last year's "Music of the Sun," has platinum certification, will perform songs including "S.O.S." from her latest disc, "A Girl Like Me," at the opening of a club called ConFusion in the fictional town of Pine Valley. In the episode, scheduled to air July 25, Rihanna will walk down a red carpet featuring reporters playing themselves, ABC said.

Does a blue curb get you a parking ticket even though the sign is gone? — A note left at the desk. A: I'm not really sure what is going on with the handicap ramp ... but a blue curb, even without a ASK ERIC sign, will result in a ticket if you park beside it. A blue curb designates a restricted parking area. There should be a sign that tells drivers how the area is restricted, but there isn't at this particular place. I would suggest letting the Public Works Department know about the missing sign. • • • I have received a lot of questions about oil prices and who supports or buys from which company and who to boycott and the like. All I can say is talk to whoever runs/owns the station where you purchase your gas. The station can tell you who it is bought from and where it is bought.
