In My Life
Can I be honest with you? I sat in front of my computer screen for over 20 minutes staring blankley at this particular space on my blog. It's asking me for a description but no words are coming out. I have nothing. I can usually find something witty, or serious or sarcastic to say. But no, it's just me, staring at this bloody screen. I hear crickets. If you have any suggestions, holla at your girl.

Mike Tyson was popped by the Po Po.
Fox News reports:
Mike Tyson was arrested early Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of cocaine after police stopped him shortly after he left a Scottsdale nightclub.
Sgt. Larry Hall said the boxer was stopped after his car almost struck a sheriff's vehicle while leaving the club at about 1:45 a.m.
Hall said Tyson was placed under arrest after "showing more signs of impairment" during the field sobriety tests. Police then found cocaine on him and in his car, Hall said. The boxer was alone in the car.
What a dumbass. And whats with the face tattoo? Wow. I think he got one too many hits to the head.

Something to smile about
Bye Bye Boobies
Sorry guys, FHM is closing down.
The New York Post reports:
Earlier this month, the British publisher Emap unceremoniously pulled the plug on FHM, a so-called lad magazine with a circulation 1.25 million, and left the country.
In the last year, its advertising became as skimpy as the wardrobe of some of its cover models, dropping 19.7 percent in the first 11 months of the year.
One million-plus readers or not, the trends were clear. What had been a white-hot niche in publishing has gone cold. Even Maxim, the circulation leader in the men's category with a rate base of 2.5 million, is down 5 percent in advertising pages this year from the year before, and the lucrative newsstand sales are down more than 200,000 in the last three years.
R.I.P. Gerald Ford
America's oldest living president, Gerald Ford, has passed away at the age of 93.
In a statement released by his wife Betty, no cause, place or time of death was named. Ford had been in and out of the hospital the past several months, and was most recently treated for pneumonia.
"My family joins me in sharing the difficult news that Gerald Ford, our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather has passed away at 93 years of age," Betty Ford said in the statement, issued from her husband's office in Rancho Mirage, Calif. "His life was filled with love of God, his family and his country."
R.I.P. James Brown
James Brown, the self-proclaimed "hardest working man in show business," died of congestive heart failure on Monday, aged 73.
"The 73-year-old pompadoured dynamo, whose classic singles include "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and "I Got You (I Feel Good)," died of heart failure less than two days after he had been hospitalized with pneumonia and only three days after leading his annual holiday toy giveaway in Augusta.
"I ain't got the same energy," Brown had told the New York Post a week earlier as he discussed his planned concert tour, "but I'm sharper."
Here was a man that loved what he did, and did it until the end. Respect.
Tony hooks up
The rumor was that Tony Romo was dating Jessica Simpson, but the real story is that he's dating American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood.
She was spotted at the Christmas Day game on the field giving him hugs and yelling her support.
What happened to her by the way? She is looking little skinny and bobble head ish.

What's in the box?
I'm not a big fan of SNL these days, but my man Justin Timberlake was hosting last Saturday, so I had to watch. I think he did a great job and one of the best skits was this awesome digital short. If you didn't catch it, you missed out on this little gem.
Isn't it so "Color Me Badd?" I love it.

Donald is a dumb ass
Rosie and Donald are throwing punches, and it's become a nasty nasty fight.
Rosie spoke her mind on "The View" which is, well, her job. And now Trump is firing back, using grade school tactics like "Rosie is unattractive and no body likes her."
Rosie O'Donnell had some fiery words for Donald Trump on The View Wednesday morning, calling him a "snake-oil salesman" following his announcement that he would not fire troubled Miss USA Tara Conner.
After hearing about her comments, Trump fired back to PEOPLE, calling her "a woman out of control" and saying he planned to sue O'Donnell over her statements questioning his financial well-being.
To hear Trumps pathetic and weak tirade, click here.

Sister from a different mister
I loved "My So Called Life." I watched every episode and taped the one where Jordan Catalano sings "I wanna be sedated" and played it over and over again.
It was a great show. Unforch, it was short lived. The big wigs at the network just didn't get how well written and close to home the show was. They didn't quite get the teenage angst.
I loved Angela, of course. But my favorite was Rayanne. She was wild and independent and didn't give a crap if people thought she was weird because she had purple braids under her blonde and brown hair and wore Converse with orange tights and a tie die skirt. I loved her spirit and her style and her ability to be weird and crazy and beautiful and still love an awkward and shy girl like Angela.
So you can imagine my delight when I took this quiz and found out that my so-called twin is none other than Rayanne Graff! Sweet!
What? No way! Rayanne is my so-called twin? This is awesome!
So, who's your so called twin?
He wheely wants a pair
My good friend Erik has shoe issues.
He doesn't like wearing them and tries at all costs to avoid them. He sticks with flip flops for as long as he can get away with it. Even if it's raining outside. Snowing even. Hail. Slate. Come to think of it, he may have worn flip flops at my wedding. I forgot to check. Not that I would have minded. It's who he is and I love who he is.
He recently posted on his blog that he would consider wearing shoes if they were cool like those ones kids have that with the wheel in the heel. We let him know that they do make them for adults and they're called "Heelys."
His excitement was quickly dashed when he found out they cost $75.00 a pair.
Well Erik, this post is for you. I found those "Heelys" at Sports Authority for $50.
Not bad right?
Well, it gets better.
I also found you a kick ass coupon that will bring the price down to $27.50!
Use this coupon code for 25% off: 25DECFF
Then at the end of your transaction, use the google check out for another $10 off. (I recently used this feature when ordering something else and it worked great.)
So, $50 - 25% = $37.50 - $10 = 27.50!
Now I know what you're thinking. Sure, the magic shoes of my dreams are only $27.50 but I still have to have them shipped to me. And that back wheel weighs a ton. This is going to add at least another $20 to the order, right?
Today is your lucky day.
Shipping is freeeee!
Ok, so now there is no excuse. The price is unbeatable and they come in some very hip colors and styles too!!!
We should all get a pair and start crusing around the malls and streets.
I hope this has been helpful.

Rock the Bells
Can you believe Christmas is in 6 days?
How did this happen?
One minute I was cursing all the stores for playing Christmas carols the week before Thanksgiving, and now all of a sudden, it's almost over!
Needless to say, I have the Carols cranking at work so I can get my full before it's all gone.
Matty and I threw our first Kincaid Annual Holiday Party over the weekend. (I need to work on that title, because it's pretty blah.) (I like a title that jumps right off the page, that gets people excited.) (But like I mentioned earlier, I'm running a bit behing on this whole Christmas time thing.) (Does anyone have any suggestions?
We had our friends and family over to celebrate the holidays and have some fun. We did a gift exchange, danced, drank and a few other things I can't tell you about because you would have had to be there for it to make sense.
In short, the party was a big success and we all got merry and bright.
What a wonderful life I have. Loving husband, wonderful family and amazing friends. It doesn't get any better than this!

Congrats are in order for Good Day L.A. cohost Jillian Barberie. She has announced that she's pregnant and due on July 4th.
This will be the first child for the Barberie, 40, and her husband, actor Grant Reynolds, 34.
"We're both thrilled," Barberie says. "I feel like I'm at a place in my life where I just am really happy.
I never thought I wanted kids – I was a career girl all these years! I never thought about it before until him."
The pregnancy was especially good news for Barberie, who was unsure if she could conceive at 40 after a 2004 miscarriage. "I was pregnant a couple of years ago with a guy that I was dating, and I thought, well, I'm 38, and I'll keep the baby because who knows if I'm going to have the chance," Barberie says.
"When we got married I said, you know, I think this is something we're going to try at. But (Grant) is very laid back and he said it's just going to happen. He's infectious with his positive thinking. And sure enough, it did!
We got pregnant on our first try. I'm very blessed. I would have gone the route of treatment if I had to."
Who's your Daddy
This girl is claiming that Mel Gibson is her secret dad! Why anyone would want to claim him as a Dad I don't know, but whatever, she is. Read about it here.
There may another couple heading towards divorce court.
Sadly, sources say that Pink's marriage to motocross star Carey Hart is in trouble, after less than a year.
(Matt-try to hide your excitement.)
The couple - who wed on a beach in Costa Rica in January - have spent long periods apart because of their work commitments and the distance is said to be putting a strain on their marriage.
A source told the National Enquirer magazine, "Pink and Carey's marriage is in trouble. They're both crazy busy with their separate careers, and it's beginning to take a toll on their relationship. They're hardly ever together."
Pink - real name Alecia Moore - has been busy promoting her album "I'm Not Dead," On the other hand, her husband Carey is a hugely successful motocross champion, runs a tattoo parlor in Las Vegas and is looking to open up another body art shop in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
The 27-year-old singer met her husband at the 2001 X Games in Las Vegas and proposed to him during one of his races by holding up a placard reading "Will you marry me?"
Bad news for them, great news for Matt.

One too many
It's the holiday season. This means lots of holiday parties. In honor of ours tonight, here are some uncommon hangover cures listed on epicurious.com.
Bacon, Egg, and Cheese — On a biscuit, roll, or English muffin, this cholesterol bomb is an all-time favorite for curing hangovers (while likely causing myriad other health problems).
Bagel and Cream Cheese — This one covers your carb, fat, and protein groups. "My sister claims that the idea of eating something greasy and carb-heavy like french fries is a myth — it's really protein that helps," relates an Epi editor.
Chocolate Milk — "Back in the day, my favorite hangover remedy was drinking one of those small cartons of Nestlé's Chocolate Quik," says an employee who's more likely to be using milk to soothe her daughter than her own stomach these days. "A massive sugar rush temporarily eased the pain and provided an illusion of being able to function. It's along the lines of drinking a Coke but a little smoother on the belly."
Coffee — It can be hard on a queasy stomach, but coffee can really cure a hangover headache. We've read it has something to do with constricting the blood vessels — plus, it helps any painkillers you've taken reach your bloodstream quicker.
Crescent City Cure — "There's a traditional, but not well known, New Orleans hangover cure called Yaka Mein. It's a beef and soy broth–based soup nicknamed Old Sober for it's purported hangover-healing properties and consists of noodles (often spaghetti), meat (often beef or pork chops), and boiled eggs," says our New Orleans editor. "Generally it's sold in bodegas and corner stores in traditionally black neighborhoods. Since most of those neighborhoods were wiped out by Katrina, it has really become an endangered dish."
Fry-Up — The full English breakfast or the "fry-up" of eggs, toast, sausages, broiled tomato, baked beans, and sometimes, if you're lucky, blood pudding, is the perfect cure for a few too many pints of bitter.
Hair of the Dog that Bit You — Some say you need to drink exactly what you drank the night before for a true "hair of the dog" remedy, while for others any form of alcohol will do. In The South American Gentleman's Companion, published in 1951, Charles H. Baker, Jr., writes that "when it comes to Picker-Uppers... the old Hair-o'-the-Dog principle is just about the only thing that will rebuild a man who has not time or patience to let nature's cure of rest, quiet and time get-in its licks."
He lists 27 recipes for such cures, including the Buenos Aires "Man-of-the-Port" Reviver: " Take 1 10-ouncer can of Campbell's Consomme or Beef Bouillon, add 2-ouncer tot of good French brandy. Stir and put in deep-freeze or freezer compartment of your refrigerator. Leave it till it's a chilled and sippable liquid; or chilled until it almost jells, and eat it with a spoon."While a beefy brandy gel seems more than a bit repulsive, some of us have been known to seek a nice bubbly beer late in the afternoon after a hangover, particularly if the hangover came from something other than beer.
Mystery Pills — One editor takes a Chinese herbal digestive aid that is rumored to prevent hangovers. Another person we polled shared this scary story: "One time at a New Year's Eve party where I knew almost no one, I rashly stuck my hand into a large bowl of pills and took a few after being told they were homemade hangover preventive pills. I think the party hosts may have been chemistry grad students. Still have no idea what was in those. Seemed to work though." Many of us would like to get our hands on a pill we read about in the The New York Times Style Magazine on December 3: "Berocca is a fizzy tablet, like Alka-Seltzer with multivitamins, commonly available in more than 40 countries — not including the United States."
Pizza — "The ideal topping is clearly pepperoni, which helps satisfies the hangover cure grease requirement," says one editor.
Prairie Oyster-"The one my grandfather, who claimed to not drink, swore by was two raw eggs with Tabasco and Worchestershire sauce," says an Epicurious contributor. "He said he didn't know if it cured the hangover, but it tasted so bad it took your mind off it." We thought "prairie oyster" meant something else entirely, but it is indeed a drink, and you'll find several versions (with and without alcohol) in our database.
Slushies and Slurpees — The same curative caffeine, sugar, and carbonation as colas, plus lots of rehydrating ice. Especially good for summer hangovers.Soda — "Ginger ale is essential," says one editor. Another shares this story: "I once had a killer hangover but still showed up (queasy, head pounding) to wait with friends in the mammoth line for brunch at Prune in New York. A sympathetic host gave me one of those tiny glass bottles of Coca-Cola. I was instantly cured. The caffeine and sugar fixed my head and the bubbles quelled my nausea — plus, I swear it tastes better in those glass bottles! I will always be grateful to that man and his magical Coca-Cola."
Smoothies — Parents will love this one: "Ever since I was a teenager and first learning to drink I've made smoothies to get over bad hangovers," one now of-age drinker relates. "When a blender is not available I run to Jamba Juice for their Peenya Kowlada smoothie — a proven hangover remedy, and it fights colds." Our database has plenty of smoothie recipes. May we suggest draping a kitchen towel over the blender to muffle its brain-splitting sound?
Soups of the World — Forget the egg sandwich! When it comes to curing hangovers, many wish we could teleport ourselves to far-flung countries for giant bowls of rehydrating broth, easy-to-digest noodles or rice, protein-packed eggs and meat, and — for a few of us — supposedly curative tripe. Some of our favorites are Mexican menudo, Korean sul long tang, Vietnamese pho, and Japanese udon and miso.
One editor swears by the ramen at New York's Momofuku, while another will drag himself to Queens to eat duck soup at the Thai restaurant Sripraphai. "With its intensely ducky mahogany-colored broth, chunks of fat-on bird, and a mess of slippery noodles, fresh cilantro, and scallions, it's somehow really flavorful, but not in the ways that agitate the old gag reflex," he says. "God, how I want some now, and I'm not even hungover!"
Sugar in Any Form — 'Nuff said.
Toast with Mashed Avocado — This is what one contributor craves when she has a hangover — seems like a good, healthy alternative to the bacon, egg, and cheese.
Water, Water, Everywhere — Many swear that simply drinking tons of water along with your poison of choice is enough to ward off a hangover. If that doesn't work, it's prescribed by our panel in many fortified forms, including Smart Water, Vitamin Water Revive Fruit Punch, Pedialyte, and Gatorade, as well as in juice and decaffeinated tea
Hmm...some sound less than desirable, but what they hey. When in need, drastic measures are a ok!

They like me, they really like me
Check out who's up for a statue this year:
List of Nominations for the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards
Peter Boyle, the dad on "Everybody Loves Raymond," died yesterday night at the age of 71.
He had been suffering from multiple myeloma and heart disease.
While a generation of TV viewers knows him as Frank Barone — with his trademark "Holy crap!" line — Boyle had a respectable career long before "Everybody Loves Raymond" debuted in 1996, including a part in Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver."
He also was close friends with John Lennon, who was best man at Boyle's wedding.
A member of the Christian Brothers religious order who turned to acting, the tall, prematurely balding Boyle gained notice in the title role of the 1970 sleeper hit "Joe," playing an angry, murderous bigot at odds with the emerging hippie youth culture.
Briefly typecast in tough, irate roles, Boyle began to escape the image as Robert Redford's campaign manager in "The Candidate" and left it behind entirely after "Young Frankenstein," Brooks' 1974 send-up of horror films.
The latter movie's defining moment came when Gene Wilder, as scientist Frederick Frankenstein, introduced his creation to an upscale audience. Boyle, decked out in tails, performed a song-and-dance routine to the Irving Berlin classic "Puttin' On the Ritz."
Through his wife, a friend of Yoko Ono, the actor became close friends with Lennon. "We were both seekers after a truth, looking for a quick way to enlightenment," Boyle once said of Lennon.
In 1990, Boyle had a stroke and couldn't talk for six months.
In 1999, he had a heart attack on the "Raymond" set. He soon regained his health, however, and returned to the series.
Despite his work in "Everybody Loves Raymond" and other Hollywood productions, Boyle made New York City his home. He and his wife had two daughters, Lucy and Amy.
I can't say that I miss seeing photos of Brit flashing her cooch while hanging out with Paris. It's something that she needed to get out of her system (why I dont know) and I'm glad it seems like it's over.
Page Six reports that Britney might be through with Paris.
THE friendship between Britney Spears and Paris Hilton was short, sweet and photogenic. But now, it seems, it's over.
A source close to Spears explains why the pop tart, who lost her undies last week, has not been seen with her "new best friend" Hilton since she posted an apology to her fans on her Web site, noting, "Thank God for Victoria's Secret underwear!"
The source said, "Britney has been told by her people that if she ever wants a comeback, she has to stay far away from Paris and start acting like an adult."
oh snap! Thank goodness her "people' intervened. Come on Brit, clean up and and bring it. I know your comeback will be off the hook!
Possible Jail Time
Nicole has needed help for a very long time. No one has seemed all that concerned and now look what's happened. She's gotten herself into a very serious situation. TMZ has the low down on what's in her future:
A judge would be forced to sentence Richie to jail if convicted on this charge because Nicole's recent arrest is actually her second DUI.
In 2002, she pleaded no contest to Driving Under the Influence.
And, per California state law, a judge must impose a mandatory sentence of five consecutive days in county jail as well as a one year license suspension for anyone twice-convicted of DUI.
Additionally, Nicole would be ordered to attend an alcohol eduction program for a year-and-a-half, even if the second conviction is not alcohol-related.
Richie was given three years probation for her 2002 DUI conviction and had her license suspended for one year. Six months after that incident, she was arrested again - this time for possession of heroin and for driving with a suspended license.
In October 2002, Nicole was arrested at NYC club Bungalow for an assault charge (which was later dropped).
Richie revealed to Vanity Fair this year that before her second stint in rehab for heroin addiction, she had gotten into five car accidents. "Two were totals," she said.
Also, Us Weekly reports that the week prior to her December 11th arrest, Nicole went out partying six out of seven nights.
And, on December 9th witnesses saw her on a particularly wild night at Hyde lounge, where bottle after bottle of alcohol was brought to her table and she "drank and drank" all night long.
Well, I think this latest F up just might have saved her life. She was on a downward spiral and going towards bottom fast. Hopefully this will help her get back on the right track.

Here are some random candids.
Gwen signing autographs and looking gorg as usual.
Brad and Angie looking like they should be on the front of a Christmas Card.
Nicole with her rumored new boyfriend, Joel Madden.
Justin Timberlake, doing his thing at KIIS fm Jingle Ball.
A very preggers Brooke Burke working it out.
Kate Hudson and son Ryder. Looks like she finally cut his hair.
Tori as some event in Hollywood. She just found out that they're having a boy!
Brangelina and family are all over the news today.
Look at their family photo. It's funny because Shiloh, their flesh and blood baby, looks out of place.
She's completely GORGEOUS though.
I wasn't sure..it could have gone either way.
When you have two hot parents, you could potentially have a not so hot kid.
But this little one is a stunner.
Caught on tape
TMZ has these photos taken via ABC security cameras.
As you can see, they capture Nicole Richie's DUI arrest. Oopsies!
She has yet to make a public statement, but her attorney told TMZ, "This is a difficult time for Nicole but she is prepared to accept whatever responsibility is appropriate. She intends to continue with her career and will deal with any other issues that need to be addressed."
Check out her booking sheet at The Smoking Gun.
You Suck. Or do you?
Blender Magazine has listed the "50 Worst Artists in Music History."
Some of their choices are good ones, like picking Manowar and Yanni.
But some of their choices are not researched, and in my opionon, should not be on that list.
Gypsey Kings are number 45.
Really? I love the Gypsey Kings.
My parents love them. My whole family love them. We play them at every party. Chances are, if you've ever been to a bar-b-que, Easter, Christmas, New Years or Birthday celebration at my parents house, you heard Gypsey Kings "Bambalao" at least twice. If you were at my wedding, you definitly heard it then.
They're a great band and shouldn't be on this list.
Blender lists Blind Melon at number 40.
Ok, I know everyone only knows the one song with the girl in the bumble bee costume. But trust me, they had a lot more to offer. I only had one cd (and yes, it was the one with the song that has the girl in the bumble costume) but I loved that cd because their music was diverse and fun and dark and sad and happy and somber. Just depends what track you were listning to.
Live is listed at number 34.
Are you kidding me right now? Who wrote this list?
Live is an incredible band. Their music is really well written and broke never followed the mainstream movement during their time. I've seen them in concert when I was working at House of Blues, and they were, by far, one of the best live (no pun intended) shows I've even seen.
Number 25 is Jamiroquai.
What the F man?
This is one of those bands that people overlook because they are generally a happy band that plays happy music. They are infectious and feel good and that's ok.
I saw him in concert at the Palladium back in 1996 and it was the only show I have ever been to where every single person was jumping up and down dancing from start to finish. (Remember Matt?)
I highly recommend "Traveling without moving." I played that CD a million times, and loved it every time.
There are a few othere, that in my opinion, shouldn't be there. Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think.
I'm with her
Brad accompanied Angie to her premire of
The Good Shepard" last night in New York City.
I think this is the first photo of them where they have actually seemed like a couple. I guess they're not ones for PDA's.
In the new issue of Vouge, Angelina gives up some dirt on her and B-Rad. They are both usually so tight lipped about their relationship and family.
On Brad- "Brad was a huge surprise to me. I, like most people, had a very distant impression of him from...the media. I am just as guilty! We push each other to be better. Even if it's just a better bike rider or a better pilot. We're constantly in competition with each other. He's somebody I admire based on the way he lives his life. And that's why I'm with him. [He is] the person closest to me."
On their relationship:- "[We] found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened [on the set of their Mr. & Mrs. Smith.] I think a few months in I realized, God, I can't wait to get to work. Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts - anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. Life developed in a way where we could be together, and where it felt like something we would do, we should do.
On marriage- "We are legally bound to our children, not to each other, and I think that's the most important thing."
On Jennifer Aniston:- "We've, like, passed each other and said 'hi' briefly, shook hands. But not a real sit-down-and-talk kind of meeting."
On a proper meeting with Maniston:- "That would be her decision, and I would welcome it."
On Shiloh, - "The day Shiloh came home...we looked around at three sleeping children and each other and thought, My God! Here we are! This is amazing! Couldn't be happier! But ...wow. We can't even figure out how to get them all in the car."
I wonder if they ever have a little pow wow on how ridiculously good looking they both are.

Here's Nic's mugshot.
She's not really wearing any makeup and I think she looks really pretty.
"A preliminary alcohol screening device revealed that Nicole was not under the influence of alcohol.
One law enforcement source tell TMZ that while Richie was at the jail she was very cooperative and very humble."
Brits moving on
Looks like Brit's got a new man. She was spotted on Sunday going to a movie with him in Los Angeles, and then back to his place.
Hmm..that sounds like a date to me.
So, who is this guy? Well, his name is JR Rotem and he's a music producer. He's worked with Paris Hilton, Spears, and also..Kevin Federline.
Oh snap! I wonder if they had something going on before Brit decided to end things. Scandalous!
Buble on Oprah
I heart Michael Buble.
If you do too, check him out on Oprah today. He'll be performing with Tony Bennett.
They both just got nominated for a Grammy in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album catagory!
If you don't know who Michael Buble is, go to his Myspace and check out some of his music.
It would be a dream come true if I could ever see him live in concert.
TMZ has the breaking story on what happened to Nic this morning.
"TMZ has learned that Nicole Richie was arrested for DUI early Monday morning. She was booked at 4:50 AM today and was released around 7:15 this morning.
The booking sheet reveals Richie is 5'1" and 85 lbs.
We're told two motorists spotted her SUV going the wrong way on the 134 Freeway in Burbank. The drivers called 911.When the CHP responded, Richie was stopped in the carpool lane and was alone in the vehicle. When cops approached the vehicle, Richie was on her cellphone.
Law enforcement officers tell TMZ Nicole Richie admitted she had taken Vicodin and smoked pot. A preliminary alcohol screening device revealed that Nicole was not under the influence of alcohol.
This is not the first brush Richie has had with substance abuse. In 2003, she pled guilty to heroin possession. The charges were dismissed after she completed the terms of her probation.
The CHP just informed TMZ the department will not release Richie's mugshot. Her reps were not immediately available for comment."
Oh Nicole. What are you doing? This is pretty gnarly. This means you had to get onto the freeway from an off ramp. This is not good. This is not good at all.
And 85lbs? Are you kidding me? I have purses that weigh more than that.
New Couple Alert
Joel Madden has moved on from Hilary Duff to Nicole Richie.
The singer and Richie were spotted out at Hollywood hot spot Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel on December 2, less than a week after Madden confirmed the split.
According to Us Weekly, Richie, 25, and Madden, 27, were spotted holding hands and dancing, with one clubgoer adding, "Nicole couldn't stop smiling. I've never seen her happier."
The following night, the new couple hit the town again, joining Madden's twin brother Benji and his Australian girlfriend Sophie Monk for an intimate dinner at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills.
Madden, 27, and Duff, 19, announced they had split late last month and blamed the break-up on their age difference."
Getting back together?
Could the cast of Friends come together one last time to do a reunion show? Do we want to see one? What if it sucks? Would it be better to have our last memories of the show be all the hilarity that ensued? Female First reports:
"The two actresses, who played Monica Gellar and Rachel Green in the hit US show, have been talking about shooting a one-off special and are hoping they can convince the rest of the cast to agree.
Cox told Access Hollywood: 'We talk about it because we love each other and we hang out all the time. I'm just saying I'm not opposed to it. Jennifer said she's not opposed to it. When we say 'reunion' I mean do a little Thanksgiving episode. It sounds like fun."
You know what? I'll take the risk and hope for a reunion. I loved that show and still think it was one of the funniest and well written on prime time tv. I think it would be fun to see where eveyone is in their lives. I love all the characters, but Chandler was one of my favorites.
You know, the more I think about it, the more I want to see this reunion happen. Yea! Come on girls, make this happen. Go! Go! Go!
Could I BE anymore excited?
