NEW YORK (AP) -- Mira Sorvino and Mariah Carey did not -- repeat, not -- get into a knock-down, drag-out fight on the set of their upcoming movie, "Wise Girls."
Sorvino said recent tabloid reports that she and her co-star brawled are "ridiculous."
"We had one verbal argument one day, there was no physicality whatsoever," Sorvino said last week. "If can you really imagine me rolling on the ground, tearing hair out, as the (National) Enquirer said, then I don't know what to say, but I can assure you that that never happened, and we made up the next day and we're on very good terms."
The 33-year-old actress said it upsets her to have such rumors spread about her.
"My mother called me and said, 'What's this? You were on the ground with Mariah Carey?' and I was like, 'No, Mom, how could you of all people believe that?"' Sorvino said. "I've had people from around the world who read this and that's the first thing they ask me."
"Wise Girls," about three waitresses at a restaurant run by the mob, is scheduled for release next year.
Twins for Dave Matthews
SEATTLE (AP) -- Dave Matthews' wife did it -- twice.
The singer's wife, 27-year-old Ashley Harper, gave birth last week to the couple's twin daughters -- Stella Busina and Grace Anne -- at a Seattle hospital.
Harper and the children are in "excellent health," a spokeswoman for the Dave Matthews Band said Wednesday.
Matthews, 34, is on tour promoting the band's latest release, Everyday, which includes the hit "I Did It." But he was on a break and by his wife's side when she delivered the babies, said spokeswoman Ambrosia Healy.
The couple have homes in Charlottesville, Va., and Seattle, where Harper attends medical school.
The twins are the couple's first children.
Bronchitis sidelines Nicks
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Severe bronchitis has forced Stevie Nicks to postpone two concerts while she undergoes treatment.
The former Fleetwood Mac singer was to perform Tuesday and Wednesday at the Universal Amphitheatre.
She first experienced respiratory problems last month as she embarked on the "Trouble in Shangri-La Tour," her publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said Tuesday.
As the tour went on, Nicks' voice grew more hoarse, Rosenberg said.
After an Aug. 17 concert in Santa Barbara, "it's clear that she's not going to get better until she gets off the road and rests for a while," she said.
The 53-year-old singer will undergo tests and treatment in Los Angeles, and hopes to return for a Las Vegas concert Saturday if she responds well to medication, Rosenberg said.
