CELEBRITIES IN TROUBLE - BOBBY BROWN CHARGED: BOBBY BROWN was charged yesterday with three misdemeanors, including drunken driving. Brown, who was arrested Monday in suburban Los Angeles, had a blood alcohol level of more than .08 percent.
Bobby’s legal team begged to differ with one of the charges. They claimed in a statement that, quote, "Mr. Brown was not driving erratically. He was speaking on his cell phone.” Note it does not address accusations their client was drunk behind the wheel? If convicted, Brown faces a maximum penalty of six months in jail for each offense. He's set to appear in court April 16th.
WHITNEY'S MOM CALLS BOBBY 'A BAD INFLUENCE': Whitney Houston's mother, CISSY, says Bobby Brown's DUI arrest proves he's “a cancer” and a poor influence on Bobbi Kristina’s life. TMZ reports that Cissy sees the DUI incident as just one more good reason for Brown to “keep his distance” from Bobbi Kristina, who she says is in “a vulnerable place.”
A bad influence. Really? I would have guessed the crack habit, car accidents, domestic abuse, failure to pay child support and crippling alcoholism would have proven that.
RIHANNA DODGES QUESTION ABOUT RELATIONSHIP WITH ASHTON: Rihanna expertly side-stepped questions about her rumored relationship with Ashton Kutcher during a London press conference to promote her role in the upcoming "Battleship" movie. If you recall, the speculation began after RiRi paid a late-night visit to Kutcher's L.A. home a couple of weeks ago. According to AOL Music, Rihanna did NOT appreciate a reporter asking her if Ashton would be joining her on the promotional trip.
"Wow," she replied, "how disappointing was THAT question?" After pausing a beat, she added, "I am happy and I'm single, if that is what you are asking." Not exactly a denial, huh? These reporters need to learn to ask the right questions.

BABY POOP - MEGAN FOX IS PREGGERS!!! OR IS SHE???: The not-always-reliable "Star" tabloid claims MEGAN FOX has been fetused by hubby BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN. A ubiquitous Hollywood "source" went and blabbed to ‘Star’ that Meg and hubby Brian Austin Green "just found out and are incredibly excited.” So far, the couple hasn’t confirmed the news. Probably because, according to the insider, “It's still early, so they are only telling close friends and family members." And we’re neither. And, plus, 'Star' could just be full of crap.

WTW!!!???: Someone actually paid 300 dollars for this creepy "one of a kind" painting of JESUS holding WHITNEY HOUSTON'S face ...
