A judge's ruling leaves Columbo star Peter Falk's wife in complete control of his affairs and allows the ailing actor's daughter to visit him.
The ruling ends a legal battle with the 81-year-old actor's daughter, Catherine Falk. She submitted a petition in December to take over her father's affairs, despite a strained relationship with Falk and his wife of 30 years, Shera. Catherine Falk later withdrew the petition, noting that she is only concerned now with visiting her father.
The judge's ruling states that Catherine Falk ...

Mike Tyson's 4-year-old daughter, Exodus, is on life support after an accident involving home exercise equipment, police said.
Exodus Tyson's 7-year-old brother found her on a treadmill with her neck caught in a cord that dangles from the console of the machine, police told The Associated Press. Exodus' mother removed the cord, called police and tried to revive the girl.

Tweets of Patrick Swayze's death have been greatly exaggerated.
A false report that the Dirty Dancing star had lost his battle with cancer burned quickly through the Twitter-sphere early Tuesday, forcing his publicist to issue a statement confirming that he remains alive.
Just as the latest Survivor celebrates his victory, a previous winner is sharing bad news: Soccer player Ethan Zohn, who won Survivor: Africa, tells People he is battling cancer.
"This is the ultimate game of Survivor," Zohn said, "and there's really only one outcome, and that's to win. There's no other option."
Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal
Farrah Fawcett is praying for a miracle in her battle with terminal cancer, saying, "I do not want to die of this disease."
"I want to stay alive. So I say to God, because it is, after all, in his hands: It is seriously time for a miracle," Fawcett says in her new documentary, Farrah's Story, parts of which aired on Today Thursday.
The self-made, two-hour documentary will air Friday on NBC. The special will feature footage of Fawcett, her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal, friends and family as the actress sought alternative treatments in Germany.
O'Neal appeared on Thursday's Today in a sit-down with Meredith Vieira and said he's been preparing himself for Fawcett's passing.
"I let ...
A&E's new slate of original programming doesn't include The Beast, the Patrick Swayze FBI drama imperiled by the health of its star.
That doesn't necessarily mean the end of the show — a rep for the cable network says no decision has been made about the its future — but it comes as a disappointment to Swayze fans who hoped The Beast might appear on A&E's schedule, which was released Tuesday. Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early 2008, and shot most of the first season of The Beast while battling the disease.
A&E's sole returning scripted series, the Benjamin Bratt-starrer The Cleaner, returns June 23.
Michael J. Fox, Adventures of an Incurable Optimist
How optimistic is Michael J. Fox? So optimistic he found a silver lining in Rush Limbaugh accusing him of faking his Parkinson's symptoms.
Fox, whose ABC special Adventures of an Incurable Optimist features Lance Armstrong, Bonnie Hunt, Bill Murray, Tracy Pollan and others talking about hope, said on The View that Limbaugh's 2006 comments proved to be a boon to stem cell research.
"He did us a great favor because he put a lot of attention on the conversation," Fox said Thursday. "We could hijack the last two weeks of the political season."
