MINDY McCREADY: Bryan White, Bekka Bramlett and Lorrie Morgan sang at a public memorial in Nashville for the late country music artist Mindy McCready.

McCready shot herself Feb. 17 after years of battling depression and drug addiction, as well as the January death of her fiance, music producer David Wilson. The mother of two young sons was 37 when she died.

People.com said more than 200 mourners -- including McCready's mother, Gayle Inge, and brothers, Josh and T.J. McCready -- attended the hour-long service at the Cathedral of the Incarnation Wednesday afternoon.

Large images of Mindy McCready at the height of her career were positioned near the church's altar, while "I'll See You Yesterday," the last song McCready recorded, played in the background, People magazine said.

Wilson was the father of McCready's 11-month-old son, Zayne. McCready also had a 6-year-old son, Zander, with her ex-husband, Billy McKnight.


JOY BEHAR: ABC has confirmed reports Joy Behar, an original cast member of "The View," is leaving after 16 years on the daytime chat show in New York.

"Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of The View from the very beginning. We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season," the network said in a statement to Deadline Thursday.

Behar notified ABC she is not interested in renewing her contract, which ends in August, because she has other projects she would like to pursue, in particular a new talk show of her own, Deadline said.

Behar, 70, is one of five co-hosts currently on "The View." Barbara Walters, 83, Whoopi Goldberg, 57, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 35, and Sherri Shepherd, 45, are the other panelists.


KELLY OSBOURNE: Kelly Osbourne was hospitalized Thursday after suffering a seizure while taping a TV show in Los Angeles, but her co-star Joan Rivers said Osbourne "is fine."

Osbourne was taping an episode of the E! show "Fashion Police" in front of a studio audience just before noon PST when she told guest host Melissa Rivers, "I don't feel good" -- and then fell to the floor, shaking, TMZ reported.

The report said an audience member, identified as "some kind of emergency responder," tended to Osbourne before an ambulance crew arrived and removed her from the studio on a stretcher -- as people used a sheet to shield her from media.

"She is fine," Joan Rivers told TMZ. "We just saw her."

The report said it was not known what caused the seizure.


CHRIS BROWN: U.S. recording artist Chris Brown was involved in an altercation with his bodyguard, a Bermuda airport worker told the Bermuda Sun.

The newspaper said Thursday Brown had a heated argument with his bodyguard, identified only as Big Pat, while their private plane stopped in Bermuda to refuel on its way back to the United States from West Africa where Brown performed.

It was unclear whether the disagreement became physical, but the police were not involved in the incident.

"I'm not sure of the details of what happened on the plane but his plane came in, got serviced and everything was finishing and they were getting ready to leave," the airport worker told the Sun.

"Then there was a stall. The security guard got off first. He was standing outside talking to the pilot. Then Chris Brown and another guy came off," the source said. "They had to come inside to Customs. They then went outside to have a cigarette. The security guard came inside [an airport building] and said he wasn't getting back on the plane. Chris went back through Customs and the plane left at about 2:20 p.m."

The newspaper said the bodyguard took a JetBlue plane home.

Brown, 23, has seen his popularity diminish after he pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, in 2009. He has since gotten into other high-profile altercations with artists, photographers and fans, as well.
