Well, Gwen must o’ thought that it’s quite a joke
And it got a lot of laughs from a’ lots of folk,
It seems he’ll have to fight his whole life through, ma.
Some gal will giggle and he’ll get red
And some guy’ll laugh and he’ll bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain’t easy for a boy named “Zuma.” [People]

Congratulations, Doreen Rose. While there’s plenty of time for Khloe Kardashian or Richie Sambora to prove us wrong, it looks you’re going to have the most impressive DUI of 2008. Not only did you get arrested while pulling out of your driveway, you somehow managed to get arrested again later the same evening, even drunker than you were the first time. This woman is Andy Dick cubed.
Anyone who’s seen Thank You For Smoking probably feels like they already know this (“The message Hollywood needs to send out is ‘Smoking Is Cool!'”), but a new report from the American Cancer Institute makes it official: “depictions of smoking in movies is causally related to youth smoking initiation.” Smoking is down to 21% of the adult population, but more than 4,000 kids pick up their first cigarette each day, with a quarter of them becoming heavy smokers. And while there has been talk of cut-downs in cigarette advertising in films, the report claims that specific brands are still visible in about 1/3 of hit movies. Nick Naylor would argue that they’re all puffed by psychopaths and Europeans, but it still seems to be doing the job. We call it…the McLovin effect.
InTouch Weekly is reporting that Gwen Stefani may be having her baby delivered via c-section this very second. “Gwen’s so excited to have this baby because she gained a lot of weight during this pregnancy,” says their source. “She is ready to meet her new baby and get her body back.” Aw, we’re sure Gavin Rossdale thinks there’s just been more of her to love! [InTouch]
Ok, well, maybe not free. But Craig Robinson must be feeling really good about the outcome of his June 29th arrest for drug possession. If the star of Pineapple Express and TV’s The Office can complete a drug counseling program in 18 months, his guilty plea and conviction will be wiped from his record. Sounds like he won’t get runs from the stress… [TMZ]
The National Enquirer wants us to believe that Winona Ryder has replaced former boyfriend Rilo Kiley guitarist Blake Sennett with future Planet Green game show host Tom Green. It seems a little dubious that Winona would follow her latest twenty-something guitarist with the author of “The Bum-Bum Song,” but we at Scandalist can’t help but root for Tom. Why? Dude’s an avid blogger who seems to whip out a camera at every red carpet he sneaks onto. Winona is long overdue for a leaked sex tape and Green seems like just the desperate dork to make it happen—if he doesn’t screw it up by yelling “Drew! Don’t leave me!” in his sleep.

Arson investigators in Long Island are complaining that they can’t get an interview with 50 Cent about the “suspicious fire” that hit the house he was trying to evict his ex-girlfriend and son from. 50 Cent isn’t listed as a suspect, but officials claim it’s “standard procedure” to talk to the owner of any house that goes up in smoke. Is Fiddy hiding something or does he just refuse to talk to anyone that isn’t paying him? [ABC News]

A doctor found guilty of indecent exposure got no points for novelty when he appealed the verdict by claiming his penis was too small to be the one in question.
“She Bangs,” Ricky? How the hell would you know? Ricky Martin is the happy of father of twins — and all he had to do was fill a Cup Of Life (ole! ole! ole!). “The children, delivered via gestational surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky’s full-time care,” said a publicist. No word on who donated the egg, but we’re guessing Martin made sure the mother was sexy. [AP]
