Just weeks after welcoming a baby girl into the world, Jack Osbourne revealed to People magazine that he has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Osbourne was diagnosed from tests taken when he lost 60% vision in his right eye earlier this year. Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system and can cause problems with muscle control and strength, vision, balance, feeling and thinking. Jack told the magazine, “I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’ I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.” Osbourne said he will use a combination of daily drug treatments, holistic therapies and lifestyle changes to keep the disease in control.
Meagan Good, star of Think Like A Man, was married over the weekend to Columbia Pictures VP DeVon Franklin. The couple married in Malibu this past Saturday at a winery.

God revealed my heart to him like nobody else.” Good and Franklin met nearly six years ago while discussing a film project, but they did not start dating until they worked together on Jumping the Broom.
