In related news, Denzel Washington recently checked out of an Orange County residence where he was detoxing after a gluttonous vacation on a yacht off the coast of Italy, TMZ reports. At least the actor was with his wife at the time of OD’ing on good food and other stuff. Washington’s publicist tells Entertainment Tonight that he sought professional help for a “ritual cleanse” that he does to prep for work. “Nothing new.” Denzel will be in Miami on Sept. 5 doing press for upcoming Russia-mafia thriller The Equalizer, along with director Antoine Fuqua.

Laura Ingalls Wilder penned one of the most beloved children’s series of the 20th century, but her forthcoming autobiography will show devoted Little House on the Prairie fans a more realistic view of frontier living.
Wilder wrote the autobiography before the Little House series but could never get it published. She used tales from the memoir as inspiration for her family-oriented books.
Wilder’s not-safe-for-children tales include stark scenes of domestic abuse, love triangles gone awry and a man who lit himself on fire while drunk.
Editor Pamela Smith Hill says the book will give fans the chance to see the real family behind Wilder’s fictionalized accounts.
