This story can’t be told in just one toke, erm, take. Apparently, country music star Willie Nelson was arrested for possession of pot this weekend. He was on his tour bus en route to Austin, Texas from California when the Border Patrol police found the high-herbs on him at a checkpoint. Not the best way to start the morning, because he was supposedly busted at 9 am. No word on whether he had his morning hit of …coffee, by then.
Willie’s bail of $2,500 bond was posted the same day, so no harm, no foul. Besides, he’s used to being caught with “stuff” on his person. Never-learns-his-lesson-Nelson was busted in 2006 for pot and mushrooms when his tour bus was stopped in Louisiana because, as a spokesperson explained, “The tour bus was stopped on a common interstate vehicle inspection, and when the trooper approached the bus door a strong odor of marijuana was detected…” He was charged then, as he was this time, for a misdemeanor.
Next time, Willie, make sure you open the windows, or a light a candle or something. Especially when you know the po-po are a stop away. Duh.

This is such sad news to start the week on. Naked Gun and Airplane funnyman Leslie Nielsen passed away yesterday. He was 84 years old and apparently died from complications due to pneumonia in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.Ã‚Â The news spread when his nephew, Doug Nielsen, toldÃ‚Â CJOB68 radio station, “Today at 5:30 with his friends and his wife by his side, he just fell asleep and passed away.”
What would cinema as we know it be like without a Dr Rumack? (Nielsen’s character in Airplane). In response we’d just like to say, “I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley!” Rest in peace.
As you are perusing the Internet this morning, you are no doubt as hungover as we are from a combination of turkey coma, red wine and whatever the hell that dessert was that Aunt Bertha whipped up for Thanksgiving. And although yesterday was technically the day that we were supposed to give thanks for all that’s good in our world, we here at TheFABLife figured we’d give you something else to give thanks for this holiday weekend. Specifically, the fact that you’re NOT on our list of the Top 50 Worst Fashion Moments of 2010. That is, unless your name just so happens to be Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Ke$ha, Blake Lively, or one of the many other unfortunate souls who were included in this countdown. In which case, better luck next year!
When Nicky Minaj spoke of Mariah Carey‘s baby-to-be, she was wrong. Kinda. She spoke about how Mariah-child is going to be the most ballin’ baby around and she’s right. But there’s one thing that can one-up this baby… and that’s two babies.
The question of the day is: is Mariah having twins? Hear the facts. M.C, while promoting her albumÃ‚Â Merry Christmas II You, was speaking about how she sings her songs to her baby bump. Which can be torture or heaven, depending on how you look at it right? She revealed, “I just hope thatÃ‚Â theyÃ‚Â don’t turn out hating Christmas!”
“They”? She just said they? Freudian slip, much? C’mon Mariah, you having babies, as in plural? Spill! Our minds boggle at the possibilities of this new development. Matching gold rattles! Diamond studded twin prams! Twin platinum mobiles!
These two are at it again with their sweetness and light. Taylor Swift and maybe-BF Jake Gyllenhaal are spending Thanksgiving together in Brooklyn. Jaylor popped in for lattes at the Gorilla Coffee shop in Park Slope yesterday with an eyewitness revealing, “They asked one of the coffee shop employees for help picking out beans.”
So they’re done apple picking, they’ve done ice cream, and now coffee. What’s next? Here are our top picks for more saccharine Swyllenhaal activities.
1. Going to a crafts class together and making a big sparkly “13″ collage (Taylor’s lucky number).
2. Recording a Christmas single and donating the proceeds to orphans in Azerbaijan.
3. Going ice-skating in matching his-and-hers leotards.
4. Planting seeds (of love) together at a park to benefit generations to come.
5. All of the above.
Our money’s on the last choice.
Besties Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler are spending Thanksgiving basking in the sun, in Los Cabos, Mexico. Sounds like fun! While the rest of us are slaving over the turkey’s we’re so thankful for these bikini-clad duo are splashing about with mojitos, mariachi and…men?
We don’t know what Chelsea’s been up to, but check out these photos of Jen that have surfaced looking cozy with an unidentified man. As in hugging, hanging out, drinking, laughing and generally looking mucho flirtypants.
So who’s the dude? Fling or friend? What’s the deal? Have a look at the gallery below to tell us what you think’s going on. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Blake Lively exploded onto our television sets by playing Serena van der Woodsen, a name so long you have to watch the credits in widescreen.Ã‚Â While Blake may have one of the longest character names in the biz, she also has some of the longest legs in Hollywood! Who cares that the 23-year old Gossip Gal isn’t appearing in The Great Gatsby remake? She gets all of the press she needs strutting her stems in her mile high hem lines. So this Thanksgiving we’re going to give you twenty more reasons to be thankful as we count down her twenty leggiest outfits ever! We’ve measured the outfits in Twiggys, the original Queen of the Mini Skirt. Pass the drumsticks!

The Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene love fest knows no boundaries. Which means all those time zones are probably make them foggy. The couple were about to fly out from Abu Dhabi, when the JoBro screwed up on his packing preparation. They were stopped at security, because Joe had knives in his hand luggage.
We’re thinking, is Joe even old enough to play with knives? You know what, the answer is affirmative since he’s old enough to play with Ashley.
But this is a Jonas Brother we’re talking about so the knife in question was a cheese cutter, that’s all. Ashley explained on Lopez Tonight, “We were going from the Middle East to New York, so [there was] tons of security, tons of screenings. We got through one, surprisingly enough.” But they got busted soon enough, and Joe’s response, appropriately was, ”Whoopsies!”
“Whoopsies doesn’t cut it,” Greene said. “We were going to get arrested!” Ashley, “whoopsies” doesn’t cut it in any situation.

Taylor Swift is now living on her own, flying the coop from her Mom and Pops, so to speak. She was onÃ‚Â Chelsea Lately yesterday and enthused, “Living alone you can do so many fantastic things.Ã‚Â You can walk around and have conversations with yourself and like, sing your thoughts. Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ I think I’m the only one who does that.”Ã‚Â Taylor, may we just say, you’re not.
Swift also confessed that she’s not about to get into trouble anytime soon (borrrinngg), because her Teachers Pet cap is still sitting proudly on her head. “I have the deeply ingrained fear of getting into trouble and being sent the principal’s office of life.” So no stumbling out of bars once she turns 21 next month. Instead, her adult excursions will involve this: “I get to go to the concerts now that my friends [used to] leave me at home for.”
Now this is all very wholesome and lovely but we’d like to propose a different plan of action. If Jake Gyllenhaal were our boyfriend we’d have him dressed as he is on the Love & Other Drugs poster, all the time. Which means in nothing. Now that’s making use of an empty house,
Lady, we just don’t get your sense of humor. Katharine McPhee tweeted a message yesterday. Sounds pretty regular, right? Wrong. Because Ms. Katharine was on a flight. Her message read, “I love illegally turning on my phone when I’m still in the air…makes me feel powerful! A tweet from the sky. Hello Atlanta!” Ã‚Â Here’s the thing. You can’t do that, Katherine. Because it’s against the law!
Her rep’s all about the damage control, telling TMZ, who posted the story, “She posted when we landed in Atlanta. She was trying to be funny but obviously some people missed the humor.” Ã‚Â Funny, real funny. Katharine herself tweeted TMZ, writing, “Ummm…just to clarify, you can’t use your phone at 36,000 feet @tmz. It doesnt work up there! Just sayin.”
You’re saying that, because you’ve tried it, haven’t you.
