Paris Hilton called into KIIS FM this morning to explain just how "nothing" this incident was: "You know what, it was nothing," she said. "I'd been shooting my music video for my new song, 'Nothing in this World.' … I got off last night at about 10 p.m. then I went and had dinner with my sister and all my girlfriends, and then we went to this charity event Dave Navarro threw for brain tumors. "And um, I had one margarita, starving 'cause I had not ate all day, on my way to In-n-Out which is probably three blocks away, and I'm in my (Mercedes) SLR, which is a little fast, so maybe I was speeding a little bit" – she giggled – "and I got pulled over." So, Seacrest asked, was she driving erratically, as reported? "No, I was just really hungry and I wanted to have an In-N-Out burger!" I had no idea that Dave Navarro threw partys for brain tumors -- I'm sure they appreciate it ... I mean, whatta guy! Still no sign of the booking photo ... but it should be released any time now.

Poor Paris, she's been having such a bad week ... first she gets denied entry into a club and now this DUI arrest. To tell the truth, I bet she's more mortified by the embarrassment of not getting into Bungalow 8 last week rather than getting busted for drunk driving. She didn't even cry after getting arrested ... the poor lamb.
Click above to watch K-Fed Lose Control
I watched the show as it aired yesterday afternoon and all you could hear was the backing track as Kevin "sang". It wasn't even close to believable. He did happily accept a few gifts from Ellen for his new baby, tho. Ellen decided to give the new baby a hot pink jacket that said Lil Fed on the back (along with a toy motorcycle and leather jacket for Sean P). K-Fed claims that he doesn't know the sex of the baby but I'm not convinced. [Source]
During the interview, they did show a screencap of K-Fed's upcoming appearance on CSI:
The episode featuring Mr. Britney Spears doesn't air until October so we have plenty of time to set our DVRs/TiVos or plan our watch-parties. It was also revealed that Playing with Fire, his debut album, will be released on October 31st -- big whoop! [Source]
One last bit of Spederline news, the New York Daily News is reporting that Britney Spears has decided to name her new baby (girl?) Jailynn ... a hybrid name between her father and her mother's names (Jamie and Lynne ... which is how Jamie-Lynn got her name). I'm sure the fact that the world "Jail" just happens to be in the child's name has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the kid is a Federline.
ATTENTION: PROJECT RUNWAY SPOILER ALERT WARNING
I kinda gotta admit ... last night's ep of Project Runway was another snoozer for me. I mean, it was more entertaining that last week's ep but something about the show just seemed slow ... and off. One would expect that the couture dress challenge would be more exciting ... especially since it took place in Paris, France but I wasn't that thrilled by the designs or the show in general. If memory serves, the couture challenges in seasons past were way more interesting, no?
Thank GOD that Vincent finally got the boot ... it's about time. He has been skating by for far too long. If I had to hear about how he keeps "getting off" on this or that one more time I was gonna puke onto my shoes (did you notice that he mentioned getting off in his exit video? Gross!). I love how Laura keeps designing the same outfit over and over again and then openly critiques Kayne for doing the same thing. She was right on about Vincent tho ... he was a genius to no one but himself. Blech! Vincent is so gross ... I kept hoping that the guest judge was gonna slap him in the face while he was hitting on her on the boat. I was actually surprised that the gang only stayed in Paris for just a few days ... I don't think they really got to enjoy much of the city since the trip was so quick. Personally, I think Kayne's dress turned out OK ... it wasn't nearly as cheesy as his previous outfits. Uli was the only one, I think, who really spent the time doing handwork for her couture dress. She should've won ... and you could tell by the look on her face when the judges revealed that Jeffery won that she thought that she should've won as well. That said, I kinda liked Jeffery's dress too ... and I hate that I did like it. It was fun, bold, well designed and was worn by the best model on that runway. I can see why he won and I guess I can't begrudge him the win ... even if he is such a jerk. I'm glad there are no more immunities for the rest of the challenges ... I don't think Project Runway needs them in the first place. I'm kinda thinkin' that Laura and Kayne's days are numbered ... I'm gonna go with Uli, Jeffery and Michael as the final three. [Source]
So ... okay ... now we can talk about the big news of the day ... and can I say that it's about damn time. With as many times as we've seen Paris Hilton looking inebriated behind the wheel of a car, it's about time that the police took notice as well. Last night, Paris Hilton was arrested for "suspicion" of driving under the influence ... we've yet to see her booking photo but it's bound to be released very soon:
Paris Hilton was arrested early Thursday morning (September 7) in Los Angeles for investigation of driving under the influence. According to Officer Robert Andreno of the Los Angeles Police Department, the singer/hotel heiress was arrested around 12:30 a.m. in Hollywood. "The officers observed that she exhibited the symptoms of intoxication," he said. "The vehicle was driving erratically and they conducted a field sobriety test at the scene and the officers determined she was driving under the influence." Hilton, 25, who was reportedly traveling with friend Kimberley Stewart — daughter of classic rocker Rod Stewart — was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI and released. Under California law, if convicted of DUI, Paris could get three months' probation and be ordered to enter an alcohol program and have her license restricted for 90 days. The Associated Press reported that Hilton's spokesperson, Elliot Mintz, confirmed her arrest and said police detected the minimum blood-alcohol level to warrant an arrest for driving under the influence. Andreno could not reveal the results of Hilton's sobriety test, but confirmed that .08 is the DUI minimum in California. After being booked and released on her own recognizance around 2 a.m., Hilton was greeted by a group that included her sister, Nicky Hilton, Nicky's boyfriend, "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, and Mintz, the AP reported. LOL! She had a party waiting for her after she was released from jail! LOL! Mintz told the AP that Hilton is "absolutely fine," and said that at the time of her arrest, she was driving home from a charity event where she had one drink, a margarita, after spending the entire day shooting a music video for the next single from her recently released debut album. The DUI was "probably the result of an empty stomach and working all day and being fatigued," Mintz said. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! One drink ... that's a good one. The fact that Elliot Mintz could say these things with a straight face proves that he's worth having on Paris' payroll. Click HERE to watch TMZ video of Paris returning home after her arrest and watch as Elliot Mintz tries to explain away her actions. I sincerely doubt anything of circumstance will come of this arrest but it's nice to see that even heiresses can suffer at least some of the same consequences that regular people must endure. Wouldn't it be amazing if one day we got to see pictures of Paris Hilton picking up trash as community service? Now, that'd be hot! [Source]
UPDATE: Paris Hilton tells KIIS FM in LA her side of the story. Click HERE to hear it.
As fascinating as the Paris Hilton DUI story is (and the only fascination is that she actually got busted this time instead of all the other times that she skated by), I think we should turn our attentions to something even more enticing ... like say ... oh ... I dunno ... Jake Gyllenhaal shirtless beach pictures?
Yes, I know I'm shameless ... but I'm okay with it. Oh look, Jakey poo shaved off his facial hair ... thankfully he hasn't messed with his chest fur. Now we can enjoy the best of both worlds ... clean-shaven and hairy chested. Le sigh. Le sigh. Le sigh. [Source]
Here is your first look at the newly coupled Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson. This photo was taken at MisShapes on Saturday night:
Unfortunately, there are no pictures of Ashl33n doing all that heavy making-out that was witnessed that night but I'm sure if this new union lasts for a while we'll see true evidence of their PDA. All it really takes is 2 drinks and 1 dark corner ... so I'm guessing ... any day now. [Source]
Yikes! What the hell has happened to Scarlett Johansson? It appears that some sort of growth has latched itself to the back of her head in an attempt to feed on and suck out her brains at the Hollywood premiere of The Black Dahlia last night:
Hahahahhaha ... the joke's on the growth. [Source]
Hollywood veteran Dustin Hoffman has to be, what, about 98 years old now? Does he really think that wearing a plastic bag over his head is a good way to keep from getting photographed by the paparazzi?
The sad thing is ... he's just giving Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen new ideas. [Source]
Has Courtney Love fallen on hard times?
I hope, at least, that she's raised her rates a little. [Source]
Deborah Harry, Dita Von Teese, Eve and Lisa Marie Presley have been named the new faces of Mac's Viva Glam campaign ... here is a picture of bored-looking younger girls from their press conference:
What do you get when you mix a rock legend, a rapper, a burlesque babe and Elvis Presley's daughter? The latest MAC Viva Glam squad, made up of Blondie frontwoman Deborah Harry, Eve, Dita von Teese and Lisa Marie Presley. The ladies start their stints today as the newest faces of MAC makeup's Viva Glam lipstick and lip gloss line, which raises money to help people who are living with HIV/AIDS and has generated $70 million to date for the MAC AIDS Fund. The four are "outstanding ambassadors for raising awareness for the cause" because each conveys glamour and confidence, says John Demsey, chairman of the MAC AIDS Fund and group president of Estee Lauder Cos. Of the four ... I'm most excited about Dita being part of the campaign. Lisa Marie never struck me as a glam girl at all ... I mean, she wore a flight attendant outfit to the press conference. Viva Glam is an amazing cause tho ... even tho I kid around, I'm glad that these lovely ladies are taking part in this newest phase of the campaign. [Source]
Julian McMahon is on the cover of the new issue of The Advocate magazine:
I am thrilled that Nip/Tuck is taking Christian's character into the world of man love. I'm excited at all the possibilities that might occur. David and I watched this season's premiere episode and I gotta admit ... I'm really looking forward to where this season is going (even without all the promise of nekkid dudes). Sign me up ... I'll be watching. [Source]
I'm not sure why Kate Moss even wears clothes any more but here are some pictures of Kate wearing some clothing in the latest issue of Vogue Hommes magazine:
Oh Kate, please don't ever change. I'd miss seeing your boobs every day. Click HERE to see the uncensored NSFW images. [Source]
And finally ... it is with the heaviest of hearts that I must report that the picture of Lindsay Lohan's bared and bare nether region posted yesterday was a Photoshopped fake. Here is the original, untouched photo:
I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad. Eh ... at least L. Lo still retains that little bit of innocence that comes with having the world not see your exposed vagina ... an innocence that Paris Hilton lost eons ago. [Source]

Alrighty ... that is all ... I'm out.
