"And then, when it turned out to be a genuinely sincere invitation … Elton said, 'Life is about building bridges, not walls.' "

Why Would Elton John Sing at Rush Limbaugh's Wedding?

Originally posted 06/07/2010 05:20PM

Elton John may have seemed like the last person expected to perform at Rush Limbaugh's wedding over the weekend.

Limbaugh, 59, has made a number of colorful remarks about gays that have sparked outrage – and kept his conservative credentials intact. But on some issues, they do share common ground.

Limbaugh, for instance, told Zev Chafetz, author of the Limbaugh biography Army of One, that he supports civil unions for gay couples instead of marriage – a point on which Limbaugh and the openly gay John agree.

Rush Limbaugh: I Still Don't Know Cause of Chest Pains

Originally posted 01/28/2010 04:50PM

As a pain was overcoming his chest last month, Rush Limbaugh thought it was "the big one".

"I've never experienced that kind of pain before and I've always wondered what it felt like," he told reporters Wednesday at Las Vegas's Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.

Though Limbaugh had feared that he had heart attack while vacationing in Hawaii in December, doctors told him it wasn't. So what was it?

"We still don't know what it was that happened," Limbaugh, 59, says. "I got an angiogram and the doctors were stunned because there was no blockage, there was no arterial disease or coronary disease. … They think it was an infection that caused an arterial spasm."

Now, though, "Everything is fine," he said.

REMOVED: The end finally came on Thursday night for the once invincible Survivor: Palau player Stephenie LaGrossa, who had been the last Ulong member standing.

After her torch was snuffed, Stephenie said: "I was outnumbered by an entire tribe. I'm actually really proud." Stephenie became the 12th castaway voted off and will serve on the jury that will decide who will win $1 million on the May 15 season finale.
