Angelina Jolie was in a reflective mood as she lay wreaths at the Gisozi genocide memorial in the Rwandan capital of Kigali on Sunday. The 37-year-old star joined UK Foreign Secretary William Hague on Sunday in her capacity as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador. The ceremony took place close to the 19th anniversary of the country's 1994 genocide in which an estimated 800,000 victims died as a result of tribal violence between Hutus and Tutsis.

With her light brown hair loose around her shoulders, the actress wore a black suit and top with minimal make-up teamed with a simple gold necklace for the ceremony.

Whitney Houston's sister-in-law Pat in suicide scare

Pat Houston's family called emergency services on Monday, believing she was about to commit suicide after she posted a troubling message on Facebook. TMZ reports that the sister-in-law of late singer Whitney Houston, wrote on her Facebook: "Sometimes you just feel like giving up on life and its many challenges. And for the first time in my life...I'm tired...and I want to finally rest. I love you guys." Fearing the worst, several family members called 911 and paramedics and police rushed to Pat's home in Alpharetta, Georgia, only to discover the scare was a huge misunderstanding.

Sources told the website that several family members were immediately concerned when they began calling and texting Pat but received no answer. According to the website, they went to Pat's house and found her passed out on her bed next to a pill bottle, prompting them to immediately call 911.

Fortunately, it was a complete misunderstanding, with Pat soon waking up as soon as police arrived.

TMZ say she told police she had taken pain medication for her back and gone to sleep and turned off her phone, unaware that so many people were trying to contact her.

Pat informed concerned parties that her Facebook post was the result of stress. She was taken to hospital as a preventative measure but released a short time later.l

She jetted out of Australia on Tuesday after her highly-publicised tour of the country with her wife Portia de Rossi.

And it appears Ellen DeGeneres plans to return - for good.

The 55-year-old talk show host told a crowd in Melbourne before her flight that she would consider living in the Land Down Under once she retires from television.

"I shouldn't put it out there but I can see us living here one day," Ellen told a packed audience of 3,000 people who had gathered to watch a taping of The Ellen Degeneres Show. "I'm moving here, it's so beautiful," added the television personality, who was accompanied by her wife and mother Betty on the trip.
