William Shatner has something new to beam about. The one-time "Star Trek" actor has purchased a home in Los Angeles that he is designating for use as a "sober living" facility in honor of his late wife Nerine Kidd Shatner, who drowned in an alcohol-related accident in August of 1999 after she hit her head on the bottom of the couple's swimming pool. The Nerine Shatner Friendly House will provide a residence for 11 women recovering from alcoholism, reports the Associated Press. "I wanted to salvage some meaning out of all that experience. I thought the best way to do that would be in Nerine's name to help other people," said Shatner, 69, who on Feb. 13 married his fourth wife, a former high school homecoming queen and horse breeder named Elizabeth Martin, 42.
