Weston Masset, 17, who was rescued by Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, 46, on April 24 after his Mustang crashed outside the actor's Malibu home, is expected to make a full recovery. Massey, who was treated for a concussion and eye injury, lost control of his car, and it flipped three times, settling upside down and trapping the teen. Dempsey grabbed a crowbar and fire extinguisher from his home and pulled him to safety before calling the paramedics. "I was scared for my life. But I had faith in him that he was going to save me," said Masset, who upon being pulled from the car asked Dempsey, "Are you famous?" to which the Grey's Anatomy star replied, "Yeah, I'm a doctor."

In a joint statement, the couple-who were together for 15 years before marrying in 2010 at their Beverly Hills home-said they "will continue to remain friends."

Johnson (inset), 69, whose bright, funky clothing and equally bright hair shot to prominence in the 1970s, will remain as the brand's creative director. While the majority of the retail locations are closing, shoppers will still be able to buy her flirty, punk-rock designs at select department stores.
On April 30 Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, 58, announced plans to build a replica of the Titanic called Titanic II, a high-tech, diesel-powered, 1,680-passenger version of the famous ship. The maiden voyage is set for late 2016 from England to New York City, just like its namesake. "It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic, but [it] will have state-of-the-art 21st-century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems," said Palmer. "It is a tribute to the spirit of the men and women who worked on the original Titanic."
OLYMPIC TRAILBLAZER DIES
He coached Olympic track-and-field teams in Israel, Ethiopia and Kenya before leading his own country's team to gold in 1976. LeRoy "Doc" Walker, 93, the grandson of slaves who was the first African-American to coach a U.S. Olympic team and to serve as president of the U.S. Olympic Committee, died April 23 in North Carolina. Under his guidance, the U.S. men's track-and-field team brought home 22 medals at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. Walker, who earned a Ph.D. in biomechanics from N.Y.U. in 1957, loved to be called "coach" above all. "When you call me that," he told the AP, "it means you're my friend."
