Eric Hill, one of the suitors vying for Andi Dorfman’s roses in the upcoming season of ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” has died following a paragliding accident over the weekend. He was 32.
“Eric shared his final journey with us this morning as all his immediate family were able to be at his side when he passed away,” his sister, Karen Tracy, wrote on Facebook Wednesday morning.
“Thank you to all of your love and support and prayers and fasting. It was amazing to be with so many of his friends and family yesterday in the hospital who came to express their love for Eric. He gave us such a gift of a life fully lived and fully shared, and allowed us all to be a part of his last adventure here on earth. It is hard to think of life without his bright spark, but we know he is on to new adventures. We look forward to carrying on his legacy here and greeting him joyfully again someday. I love you so much, little brother!”

According to Newscore, Will Ferrell and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay put their bodies on the line for charity as a celebrity-filled soccer friendly in the UK turned ugly.
Ferrell limped off the field in considerable pain with a leg injury late in Sunday’s annual Soccer Aid game at Manchester United’s Old Trafford but will have counted himself more fortunate than Ramsay, who earlier was hospitalized following a heavy challenge.
“Hell’s Kitchen” star Gordon Ramsay was stretchered off the field while receiving oxygen, after being flattened by former England international Teddy Sheringham midway through the second half. He later was released from the hospital.

Well, no one saw this one coming — except for maybe Willam herself.
“Will you please step forward?” RuPaul asked the controversial queen at the very end of last night’s new episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, sending what should have been the routine elimination of Phi Phi O’Hara or Sharon Needles into a totally different — and weird — direction.
It was only after William — who was actually the winner of the night’s fremeny challenge, alongside partner Latrice Royale — came back to the front of the stage that — SPOILER ALERT— it was revealed that she was being disqualified from the show. “It has come to my attention that you have broken the rules,” RuPaul told Willam. “Your actions have consequences, and I’m afraid I have no choice.”
There were several very odd parts to the whole episode-ending sequence: Just minutes before this shocking revelation, Willam took a moment to step to the edge of the runway and puke — in front of her fellow contestants and the judging panel. (Disqualified because she barfed in public?) And then, after she was kicked off the show, there was no explanation about what rules she had broken, by her or RuPaul or anyone connected with the show.
In fact, Willam seemed flip about the whole situation. “I broke the rules,” she said on the episode, before rubbing her butt on the mirror in the workroom where she also left a goodbye message for her fellow contestants, “but I’m a big boy dressed in big girls clothes. Regrets kind of like a fool’s game. I can’t change anything that I did, and there’s no point in dwelling on it.” The good news? Phi Phi O’Hara and — bless, bless, bless! — Sharon Needles are safe.
But — like you — we here at EW are still confused about what, exactly, happened. Which is why we checked in with Willam herself to see what she had to say about the night’s events. She’s just as cagey as you might expect — and the answers are still very unclear, outside of the realization that this is all likely just a big publicity ploy for her and her new single — but read on to hear Willam talk about last night, her portrayal on the show, who she’s rooting for now, and what she’ll be shilling next.
