Chris Brown just CANT stay out of trouble!! He was arrested in Washington D.C. yesterday morning for FELONY assault after allegedly attacking a man outside the W hotel. The alleged victim says he and a friend were hanging out at the W when they photo bombed the picture Chris took with two women, which sent Chris into a rage, punching the guy, breaking his nose…and making gay slurs. Under DC law Brown couldn’t post bail so he'll appear before a judge today, but has remained in jail since his arrest.
Conrad Murray was released from jail at 12:01am this morning after serving two of his four years for the death of Michael Jackson.

Murray looked to be chowing down on a famous double double as his first meal post prison.

Three different publishers are locked in a battle for the rights to Angelina Jolie’s autobiography, with at least $48 million already on the table. Angelina has told publishers she is ready to EVERYTHING, and believes the time just feels right to tell her story. So, the $48 million offer so far is an ADVANCE and she stands to make even more. She says she will talk about her relationships, her self-mutilation, her lesbian relationship and her mother’s death from cancer.
I’m super confused!! Bruce Jenner was not invited to the surprise wedding engagement last week…but WILL walk Kim Kardashian down the aisle at her wedding to Kanye West. Kim considers Bruce to be her dad, and she always planned on having him give her away ... just like he did when she married Kris Humphries. Sources say as far as Kim is concerned ... it doesn't matter what Bruce's relationship is with Kris ... she would never consider excluding Bruce from the ceremony. We also heard this morning that Kim plans to let Kanye plan the whole wedding.
Kourtney Kardashian is telling the man claiming to be the father of her son Mason to stop extorting her, shut the F up and go away... or else. Kourtney's lawyer, Shawn Holley, fired off a cease and desist letter to Michael Girgenti, making it clear that Scott Disick is the baby daddy, and he has a DNA test to prove it. Apparently, Girgenti had the audacity to tell Kourtney he'd back off his claim IF she paid him off. To that Holley threatened that she'd ask the judge to make HIM pay for the alleged extortion. Holly claims he also flunked a polygraph.
A prostitute in Panama had sex with Justin Bieber after meeting him at a Panama City nightclub last week and basically said he was not super impressive in the sack. She was even asked about Justin’s package, which she said was so-so. Justin left the club with 10 women, taking them back to his hotel. Now, the woman does not speak very good English, but says after they got back to the hotel, Justin asked her…and this is the radio friendly version…”if she wanted all of his swimmers.” Then they had sex. At the end of the night, he gave her $500 and had his car take all the women back to the nightclub.
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are having a baby!!!! Reps for the couple did confirm they are expecting their first child. The two met on the season finale of SNL in 2011 and started dating 6 months ago.
I’m thinking Ryan Seacrest is glad he has some distance now from Julianne Hough, since she is being called a racist after going to a Halloween party over the weekend in blackface to be the character “Crazy Eyes” from the show “Orange is the New Black.” Apparently not ONE friend warned her that the ancient art of blackface is very insensitive and just never OK. She did issue a twitter apology, saying she is just a huge fan of the show and the actress that plays that character and apologized if she offended anyone.
Officials in Malaysia were so against Ke$ha performing as scheduled over the weekend, they threatened her with imprisonment if she tried to hit the stage. Ke$ha tweeted that she did NOT cancel the show, but instead, authorities pulled the plug on the show last minute and said if she tried, she would get tossed in jail. Ke$ha’s people even tried to follow Malaysian culture and changed lyrics and costumes ahead of time to not offend anyone.
Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz are back together. Eduardo is Penelope Cruz’ little brother. The two were seen grabbing lunch together over the weekend, holding hands.
Paparazzi caught Miley Cyrus’ 13 year old sister Noah driving a car illegally last week. Noah Cyrus was behind the wheel of a fiat, driving around town with her dad Billy Ray. Noah is set to turn 14 in January. She won’t get a ticket though since police didn’t catch her, just paparazzi.
Tori Spelling is broke? Well…not broke like a “normal person,” but in debt now and living on a budget. Tori is out promoting her new book “Spelling it like it is” and talks about her families money problems. Spelling, husband Dean and their kids now rent a home in the San Fernando Valley. She hasn't bought a handbag in 3 years; her children wear hand-me-down clothing and her husband couldn't even afford to get the vasectomy he wanted. Tori says they are now "all about repurposing. It's a really good value to have.” She refuses to ask her mom Candy for money though since they have never had a close relationship.
Brad Pitt has stopped using soap. Instead, he bathes using a homemade blend made of lemon, water and apple cider vinegar. An insider says "Brad says he's read up on the toxins of soap, especially the antibacterial ones, and feels that using them and antiperspirants is not only bad for the planet, but it also speeds up the aging process in humans." The source adds, "Angie was revolted, and their kids even started calling him 'Stinky Daddy.'"
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were leaving a fundraiser for Wolfgang Puck's, "Dream For Future Africa Foundation" when they were bombarded by paparazzi last night in Beverly Hills. So…they ran out…jumped into a waiting SUV and were hoping for a fairly clean getaway. But…it was not THEIR car. Ironically, it was Beverly Hills police that placed them in the wrong car. The two tried to hide out in the back of THAT car while people scrambled to find the right SUV, then scrambled to get through paparazzi again to make the transfer. But…you gotta give Kanye some credit. The situation was a bit chaotic and he still managed to keep his composure and didn’t rage on anyone! Progess!
This is different then we heard yesterday. But apparently Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have already agreed they will keep their assets separate by drawing up a prenup before they get married.
Both Kanye and Kim are committed to the marriage and they are NOT signing a prenup because they're worried the relationship will fail, but they're both business people and know given their vast wealth it's just the smart thing to do. Even though they will keep their assets separate, they will have a fat joint account for living expenses that will probably approach the gross national product of a small country. Some reports place Kim's wealth at $40 mil and Kanye's at $90 million.
There are two very hot people back on the market today after Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced they are splitting up after three years of marriage. The two haven’t said what led to the split. They have a 2 year old son named Flynn.

She currently gets $8,000 a month even though Jon is making $2 million a month on “Two and a Half Men.” Sarah says life is AWFUL. She says her poor son can’t afford summer camps, exotic vacations or expensive birthday parties like all his spoiled friends get!! How is she supposed to live?!
Israeli Rihanna fans were pissed after she showed up over an hour late to her sold out show, performed for barely an hour and appeared to just sing over a track the whole show. The 50,000 fans had really looked forward to the show since they don’t get many artists performing there.
The chick Pauly D knocked up claims she's no longer looking for a custody war, and is now willing to accept co-parenting with him. Pauly said this week he plans to fight for FULL custody of his 5 month old daughter with Amanda Markert…who he hasn’t even been able to meet yet, since she was the result of a drunken one night stand in Vegas. Sources close to Pauly say one of the reasons he wants full custody is because Amanda's first baby daddy (of her 5-year-old son) is currently a wanted man for felony drug charges and currently has a bench warrant out for his arrest.
Pauly’s good friend and "Jersey Shore" co-star Vinny says he doesn't wanna knock up any ex-Hooters waitresses like Pauly did... so he makes sure to wear one condom on top of another!! Fun Fact -- Wearing two condoms actually INCREASES the chance of pregnancy ... 'cause the friction can break the condom (duh, remember 4th grade sex ed?)
Charlie Hunnam might be out as Christian Grey for the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, but producers have found his replacement. Actor Jamie Dornan has been chosen as the new Christian Grey.

McCormick kicked him out of the house already. McPhee is also married by has been separated from her husband Nick for 6 months already.
Video of Kanye West proposing to Kim Kardashian has been leaked online. Its pretty grainy but it show Kanye on the field Monday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco getting down on one knee. I’m sure Kris Jenner is pissed since the E! cameras were on hand to capture the moment and then have the world see it first on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” You can see the video right now at www.jackieandbender.com
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will not be signing a prenup before saying their wedding because Kanye believes these contracts are “tacky” and would “soil” their love and cast a shadow on their romance. As Kanye sees it, they both have enough money as it is to last them a lifetime without having to work a single day anymore, so, if they do split up farther down the road, neither would want a cut of each other’s fortune. Riiiiight.
Lamar Odom will reportedly check into rehab "any day now," with the support of estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, in an attempt to salvage his marriage. Lamar has paid for a 3 month stay at a rehabilitation facility in Malibu…in full. I’m sure running out of time to get signed for the next NBA season is motivating him as well.
Madonna has rid herself of her massive Beverly Hills estate ... the one she bought during her marriage to Guy Ritchie and she made a PROFIT of $8 million. It sold for $20 million.

But don't worry about her ... she's still got massive properties in London and New York.

Lindsay Lohan is being sued over her car accident last summer when her Porsche rammed into a semi-truck in Malibu. Lindsay lied to police after the accident and said she was the passenger.

Holy mother of God…what has happened to Courtney Stodden’s face???? She looks like she bought herself some brand new lips and these bad boys are large and in charge!! If you just look at her face now, since her boobs are sort of a giveaway, she looks like Lindsay Lohan when she overfilled her lips too. The pics are up at www.jackieandbender.com
Pauly D wants full custody of his baby daughter and wants the case heard in Las Vegas not New Jersey, where his baby mama lives. He just found out this week that he has a daughter but hasn’t even been allowed to meet her yet. Pauly wants the case heard in Las Vegas since Nevada tends to give custody to fathers more than judges in New Jersey. He is also currently working in Las Vegas.
PINK thought she’d found a new BFF in Gwyneth Paltrow – but when the Pink got better reviews in their new movie, “Thanks for Sharing,” Gwyneth pulled the plug on their friendship! And now Gwyneth has apparently been trashing Pink around Hollywood. Once source says Gwyneth told people after the reviews raved about Pink... ‘Why would I ever want to work with that dirty girl again? She’s so unpleasant and unkempt, I don’t even like being around her. Pink was hurt when word got back to her, but “She’s going to write a song about a phony friend with two faces and she’s using Gwyneth for inspiration.”

Kanye West’s marriage proposal to Kim Kardashian on her 33rd birthday will most likely be on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Kanye apparently gave the OK for E! camera’s to film him getting down on one knee Monday night in San Francisco. He gets the final say so though in the end on what we all see.
Just so no one assumes he has been cut out of the Kardashian clan…Lamar Odom made sure to tell paparazzi last night that he WAS invited to Kanye's big proposal to Kim -- but he CHOSE not to go because he had better things to do that night. He stopped to chat on his way out of the Spitting Chicken Cantina in Sherman Oaks last night and talked about his friendship with Kobe, his relationship with his dad and his battle to get back into the NBA. Lamar said he thinks he is already back in playing shape…and thinks he will actually play really well. He needs to get signed with a team first, right?
Ja Rule is working on his new “Prison Cook Book!” The rapper - who spent almost two years inside for gun possession and tax evasion - insists every recipe in the book will be "microwavable" as that was how he had to cook in jail to avoid the horrible prison food. While behind bars he learned to cook anything and everything in a microwave…including lasagna and cheesecake. He and fellow prisoners were able to cook in basically the “dorm” they shared.
Lindsay Lohan may have been reaching in the wrong direction last night because it looks like her hand was going straight for a wine bottle. The picture was taken at a Hollywood Hills home where Lindsay was hanging out before attempting to catch a red eye flight back to NY. There are no photos of Lindsay actually drinking…Lindsay sent her sober coach packing after staying with her since she left rehab. Lindsay told him she can do it on her own now

He thinks she is unfit to be a mother while she refuses to let him around his daughter but still wants child support.
Rihanna was kicked off the grounds of Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque over a photo shoot while she was there for a show. She wasn’t even showing skin, but the mosques “overseers” said the pictures detracted the sanctity of the site.

Earlier yesterday he pled not guilty to a felony charge of furnishing ecstasy to the woman who had accused him of sexual assault. The D.A. dropped the sexual assault charge due to insufficient evidence.
Lady Gaga has decided it was just easier to settle with her former BFF/personal assistant to avoid a trial. Jennifer O’neil was suing for over $300,000 in overtime pay for basically working around the clock while being paid for 40 hours a week. Gaga responded to the suit basically by saying…”deal with it, I’m the queen of the universe, do your job.” The trial was set to start November 4th...but that has been averted. No word on how much Gaga paid her to go away.

Someone from bar management claims Justin was drinking water, but a rep for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission says a complaint has now been filed ... and an investigation has been launched since they saw clear pictures of Justin drinking in the club. Justin apparently wont get in trouble, since he wasn’t caught in the act, the bar could lose their liquor license.
Justin Timberlake seems to be perfect…but even he has resorted to A HAIR PLUG TRANSPLANT!!! I know!!! Justin has always kept his hair short and worn hats to cover up his thinning hairline. One friend says Justin has been really self-conscious and before he began shooting his new movie “Runner, Runner” he underwent a series of hair plug transplants.
Ben Schubert has done some pretty interesting things for our show…but would he do what Russell Brand did for his career. Russell says he “pleasured a man” in the bathroom of a gay bar in New York City, as part of a TV stunt. But…he does admit he was on heroine at the time. He said he decided to film the private moment with the guy in the bathroom to explore social taboos. He said it was like “massaging a naked mole rat.”

Former porn star turned actress Jenna Jameson seemed pretty off yesterday during an appearance on “Good Day New York.” She was slurring her words and stumbling through what she tried to talk about until producers pulled the plug on her interview to promote her new book “Sugar.” After the interview she laid down on a coach in the green room. Her people say she was just tired from a long flight, but she has struggled with drug addiction in the past and got a DUI last year after hitting a light pole with her car, so some people are wondering.
