HAYDEN PANETTIERE is in treatment for postpartum depression. A rep for the "Nashville" star broke the news to People magazine and asked that the media "respect her privacy during this time." The adorable blonde has been outspoken about her battle with the baby blues since the birth of little KAYA last December and revealed on "Live! With Kelly and Michael" that the condition is "really painful," "really scary" and women need a "lot of support." (Lee)

LAMAR ODOM, the ex-husband of KHLOE KARDASHIAN, was taken to the hospital yesterday after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.
TMZ says Lamar had been partying for days at the Love Ranch South in Crystal, NV, and had to be intubated, stabilized and taken in an ambulance to Desert View Hospital yesterday afternoon, then later taken to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

Top Halloween treats of 2015
Surprise! Candy corn is one of the most popular Halloween candies of 2015. According to a new survey, the Halloween treat many people love to hate was actually voted the top Halloween candy in five different states: Oregon, Wyoming, Texas, Tennessee and South Carolina. Mashable.com says no other candy got first place in that many states.
The survey polled more than 40-thousand people from all 50 states about 30 of their favorite Halloween treats. (The only cookie included: Oreos.) While candy corn was the favorite in more states, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups pulled down the highest total number of votes. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kats and Butterfingers were the only three candies to get votes in all 50 states.
Sucks to be you:
Poor CHARLIE SHEEN can't win for losing. The "Warlock" called off his engagement to former triple-X actress SCOTTINE SHEEN last October and she wants five-million-bucks from the good-timin' actor, despite the fact that they never tied the knot! Sources tell RadarOnline.com they're headed for mediation this weekend.
Survivor: real life:
A grandfather missing for almost a week in the Australian Outback survived by eating nothing but ants.
62-year-old REG FOGGERDY vanished in Western Australia's Goldfields region while out "hunting for a camel." Authorities searched for him for six-days with no luck. He was eventually found lying motionless under a tree. He was given water and transported to a hospital where he's said to be recovering. It turns out Foggerdy regularly watches reality television shows about survival. His wife says that's how he knew to dine on black ants to stay alive. (Still)
Grace notes from Vinny Marino:
It wouldn't be an awards show if TAYLOR SWIFT didn't have the most nominations. The nominees for the 2015 American Music Awards were announced yesterday and Taylor leads the pack with six. ED SHEERAN and THE WEEKND both have five nods each. JENNIFER LOPEZ will host the big event on November 22nd at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. ABC will carry it, live.
