TMZ has learned that Nicole Richie was arrested for DUI early Monday morning. She was booked at 4:50 AM today and was released 45 minutes ago. The booking sheet reveals Richie is 5'1" and 85 lbs. A rep for Richie could not immediately be reached for comment. We're told her SUV was spotted by two motorists 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.

UPDATE: TMZ has come up with the 911 calls that alerted police to this incident. You can hear the calls HERE.
This is really unfortunate news for Nicole, things seemed to be going so well for her lately. Here are a couple pictures of Miss Richie out and about over the weekend looking pretty content with herself:

And to think ... the headline for today was prolly going to be something along the lines of Britney Spears Darkens Her Hair! Who knows what fallout will come of all of this ... I can't say that I would've ever predicted that both Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie would be arrested for DUI in the same year. Boy, what a year 2006 has been, huh? I can't imagine that the crazy drama is over yet ... there are still a few weeks left for someone else to get arrested, divorced, pregnant or to come out of the closet. I wouldn't even dream of venturing a guess as to what news is next. OY! [Source]
In happier news, Jamie Lynn Spears made an appearance at the Hollywood premiere of Charlotte's Web at the ArcLight Theater yesterday afternoon ...

... oh wait, did I say "happier news" cuz I meant "crappier news". I'm not sure why JL thinks that these horrid floral print dresses are appropriate for public consumption but I really think she needs to find some other gimmick to rock. She's just too cute to be dressed in a print that looks like wallpaper from her grandmother's bathroom. [Source]
Dakota Fanning, Julia Roberts and others were also on hand for the Charlotte's Web premiere yesterday:

I'm really glad the pig was able to make the premiere. Insert your own crude joke here. [Source]
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were not content enough to have just one wedding celebration, no Siree, they actually require two shindigs to show the world how much they love one another. Here are a few pictures of some of their celebrity guests who attended their little soiree over the weekend:
Huh ... look at that ... Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony came back for a repeat appearance ... the gift bags must be really, really good. I'm a little concerned that uberhottie Christian Bale is partying with TomKat cuz I don't want him gettin' all nuts on us or anything like that. I suppose I should just be content to admire his hotness. Penelope Cruz was also among the party-goers ... which is a bit strange, since she was Tom's first girlfriend after he divorced Nicole Kidman. Maybe she just showed up to get the skinny from Katie Holmes on what sex with Tom is like. Hahaha ... yeah right. [Source]
Check out the sour faces on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as they make their way to a a dinner party thrown by Robert DeNiro in NYC yesterday evening:

I wonder if they were just pissed that they didn't get an invite to the TomKat party -- sheesh, what the hell could be in those gift bags? OR, maybe Angelina is just upset that that white St. John trench coat has been surgically attached to her body. That can't be fun. [Source]
Matthew McConaughey is back in the good ol' US of A and is chillin' in NYC to do promo stuff for his new movie We Are Marshall ... unfortch for us, it's so damn cold in NYC that Matthew must resort to wearing clothing ...
Photo credit: Splash News
... really bad clothing. Yeah, I realize that he is rockin' the mode of dress that is appropriate for the movie but those clothes kinda make him look like a homeless dude ... especially since his tan makes it look like he's got a dirty face. I think he should get his booty back to LA and drop about 40 lbs. of clothing STAT! and then I might go see his flick. [Source]
LA's famous radio station KROQ held it's annual Almost Acoustic Xmas concert over both Saturday and Sunday nights this weekend and here are a few pics from the first night:
KROQ managed to secure awesome line-ups for both nights (Sunday night's attendees got to enjoy The Killers, The Raconteurs, Panic! At The Disco, Evanescence and more) and usually I'd be all for going to shows like this. But, I think I've given up on festival shows because of all the work that goes into attending said shows. Each band only plays for such a short while and the jockeying for position in the crowd is never fun. I much prefer seeing each band on their own because even tho you still have to jockey for position you can at least get to enjoy a full concert set. Still, I'm very impressed that both night's line-ups. [Source]
In other performance news, Xtina Aguilera was the musical guest on the German TV show Wetten ... Das? over the weekend. Here are a few pictures from her performance on Saturday night's show:
She was lookin' pretty damn hot even with all those ruffles. [Source]
Also performing in Europe over the weekend was the maudlin prince of mope Morrissey. The Moz man played to a packed house at Wembley Arena in London over the weekend and, according to THIS review, really brought the house down:
To the casual fan, Morrissey is not the most natural choice for an arena filler, his refined abilities being more suited to calmer contemplation in a theatre. Yet he dominated Wembley, not least because this sensitive flower is actually a big, burly bloke. Emerging on stage looking as elegant as ever, his chest bulged from his shirt to such an extent that his clearly uncomfortable powder blue tie was soon removed and tucked into his back pocket like the gladioli of old. Two shirts later he was unbuttoned to Tom Jones proportions, cracking his microphone lead like a whip. Posing beneath a huge photo of a young Pasolini, the old self-loather sang once again those devastating lines from How Soon Is Now?, about going home and crying and wanting to die, but they rang less true tonight because if the rumours are to be believed, Morrissey is in love ... For pop's most famous celibate, this is like the Pope turning to Buddhism, but the fans treated him no differently, still trying in vain to bypass the bouncers and touch him, still chanting his name as though he was a football team. However, this unexpected reduction in self-pity meant that he had to look further afield for things to complain about. He slammed Madonna for wearing fur and claimed that Jamie Oliver was everything wrong with modern England. Moving from bitchiness to pure vitriol, the anti-Police sentiments of Ganglord were dedicated to Stockwell shooting victim Jean Charles de Menezes ... the vigour of Morrissey the performer was unweakened by middle age. He still belongs in front of huge crowds like the one he commanded here. Love it! If Madonna can still put on a kickass show at her age, then so can Morrissey. I'm just glad the old bloke is still up for performing. I suspect he still has a few more albums left in him yet. [Source]
Raven Symone is all growed up ... which is really disturbing to think about actually. She celebrated her 21st birthday in Las Vegas at Tao on Saturday night with a really ridiculous birthday cake, I might add:
21 years old! Damn ... that is really depressing. Well, Happy Freakin' Birthday, anyways. [Source]
Kate Moss, supermodel extraordinaire, likes to sunbathe topless:

If you're interested in seeing a whole lot more, then what you need is newly single Pamela Anderson in the pages of Playboy magazine:

I'm pretty sure that just one of Pammy's boobs weighs more than Kate Moss does but that's just an educated guess. Click HERE to see the NSFW uncensored pictures of Pamela Anderson's Playboy spread. [Source]
Dakota Fanning is the new face of Marc Jacobs and here are a couple of her promo shots:
Um, what? They're kidding, right? [Source]
And finally, in other ad campaign news, here is the first of Scarlett Johansson's promo ads for Louis Vuitton:

But hello, I'm back in LA where the weather is much nicer and I can put away my winter coat ... at least until I have to fly back to Detroit.
Tonight, I am going to try and attend the Christian Audigier party since I am such a big fan of their stuff:
David got me a Christian Audigier shirt for my birthday and it has become my fave shirt to wear! I'll have to see if I can rope up a hot date to go with me.
It's nice to be home ... Happy Monday, y'all! I'm out!
