Texas authorities: Drugs, gun found on Nelly's bus

SIERRA BLANCA, Texas (AP) -- Authorities say they found drugs and a gun on rapper Nelly's tour bus at a West Texas border checkpoint where several celebrities have been arrested.

Hudspeth County sheriff's officials said an initial search Wednesday night turned up small amounts of marijuana and heroin and a loaded gun.

Authorities say a second search revealed a duffel bag with about 10 pounds of pot.

Officials say one of the occupants was arrested after admitting the drugs and gun belonged to him. In a statement, Nelly blamed his staff member.

Previous drug-related arrests of celebrities at the checkpoint near Sierra Blanca included Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple and actor Armie Hammer.

Man convicted of trespass at Miley Cyrus' home

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A Los Angeles jury has convicted a man of misdemeanor trespassing at the home of Miley Cyrus.

The panel on Thursday also found Jason Luis Rivera guilty of resisting arrest after he was caught at the actress and singer's home. The 40-year-old's sentencing is scheduled for Friday.

Rivera has been jailed since his arrest Sept. 8, when authorities say he was caught at Cyrus' home carrying a pair of scissors.

Police say Rivera told them he was a friend of the singer-actress and repeatedly threw himself against an outside wall as if trying to break in.

Cyrus wasn't home during the incident.

ABC's Robin Roberts home from hospital

NEW YORK (AP) -- ABC's Robin Roberts has come home from the hospital three weeks after undergoing a bone marrow transplant.

After thanking her doctors and nurses and singing "Amen," the "Good Morning America" host began the next stage of recovery from MDS, a blood and bone marrow disease. Her sister was the donor for her bone marrow.

While leaving the hospital after a month is a big first step. Roberts' doctor explained that it still will take time for the patient to gather strength and build up her immune system.

"Good Morning America," now the top-rated network morning show, aired a story about Wednesday's homecoming. The show has brought in occasional celebrity guest hosts such as Stephen Colbert to fill in for Roberts.

Debbie Reynolds in hospital, cancels shows

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A publicist says Debbie Reynolds has been hospitalized and is canceling upcoming appearances after suffering an adverse reaction to medication.

Reynolds' publicist Kevin Sasaki says the singer-actress was hospitalized in Los Angeles after having the bad reaction. She is canceling shows and appearances through the end of the year.

Reynolds is famous for her role in "Singin' in the Rain" and earned an Oscar nomination for her gutsy character in "The Unsinkable Molly Brown."

The 80-year-old performs numerous shows and makes appearances each year. She is scheduled to appear on a float promoting pet adoption in the upcoming Rose Parade.
