Carnie Wilson happy to be healing

Singer Carnie Wilson, who tweeted last week that she had been diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, said Monday that she is making progress in her recovery, Us Weekly reports. "Twelve days out of Bell's and doing much better! All your wishes have warmed my heart and it's making me heal faster!," she tweeted. Wilson, 44, says she is treating the condition -- a form of facial paralysis that can result in facial drooping due to a nerve malfunction -- with acupuncture. The former Wilson Phillips singer underwent gastric bypass surgery in 1999 and lap-band surgery in early 2012.

The former voice of the "Sesame Street" character Elmo is again being sued by a man who claims the entertainer lured him into drug-fueled sex when he was 16, The Associated Press reports. Sheldon Stephens, now 24, says he met Kevin Clash at a networking event. He says he was brought by limousine from Pennsylvania to a New York apartment. There, Clash allegedly smoked crystal meth while giving the teenager another recreational drug. Stephens first made the allegations last year, but recanted after failed efforts to reach a settlement. He renewed the accusations in a lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Pennsylvania. Clash's attorney Michael Berger says his client denies any wrongdoing.
