If there’s anything this woman loves more than sporting a crisp fedora or dropping those club beats, it’s (allegedly) drinking and driving. TMZ reports that Samantha Ronson was charged with a DUI earlier today. LiLo‘s ex got slapped with two misdemeanor charges following her arrest last week, after being pulled over while returning to L.A. from a DJ gig in Las Vegas. Let’s just say if a passenger openly refuses to take a Breathalyzer test, it’s rarely a good sign. If convicted, Ronson would fact up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Or, if she get a Lohan special, 6 months of lying by the pool while making baffling internet ads.

And here we go again. Our Ã‚Â monthly quota of celebrities getting busted for drinking and driving — because it really is someone every month — peaked super early this time! The first of the month has to be some sort of record, right? This time around, it’s Samantha Ronson who was arrested on DUI charges at around 10.30 in the morning yesterday in Baker, California. She was was driving back from Vegas where she had played at Lavo nightclub on Sunday night. Ms. DJ was pulled over by the cops for speeding but then did the extremely stupid thing of refusing to submit to a breathalyzer. Samantha was then booked and taken to Barstow jail and released just before 5.30 pm. The end. Oh wait, dude, driving from Vegas while drunk? That’s an especially brilliant move. Not.
Which is more embarrassing? To be known for your starring role in the Planet of the Apes remake across from Mark Wahlberg, or for following up your hit-and-run with a swift kick to your arresting officer before trying to your attempt to escape custody? Yeah, we know. It’s a toss-up. Seeing as how Estella Warren’s D.U.I. arrest last month came after the actress plowed into several parked cars, hit a cop and managed to extract herself from her handcuffs like a master magician, it’s not much of a surprise that Estella Warren’s charges now include DUI, hit-and-run driving, battery and resisting arrest. That is extremely humiliating, but at the same time…remember that ape Lincoln Monument, at the end of the movie? We know; it’s like a mind-teaser.

Super sexy sometimes actress and model, Estella Warren, is behind bars for a DUI right now in L.A. She went down swinging too! According to TMZ, Warren rammed into three cars with her Toyota Prius late last night, allegedly drunk off her skull. She then supposedly kicked a policeman before getting booked. Bad move, Warren. Really bad move!
It doesn’t end there, either. While Estella was at the station, she pulled a Houdini-like maneuver and got out of her handcuffs! She then proceeded to make a break for the back door but was busted again. So now she’s been booked for DUI, hit and run, assault and felony escape (there has been no report of what her bail will be set at). To make so fine a point, a law enforcement source revealed, “She was really hammered.” You don’t say, officer.

Well, this is most definitely a coincidence. NBC announced that Christina Aguilera will join Cee-Lo and Adam Levine as the judges for the network’s upcoming singing competition The Voice, not even 48 hours after Christina was arrested for public drunkenness with boyfriend Matthew Rutler, with People publishing juicy anonymous quotes concerning Aguilera’s drinking problem earlier today. “She’s saying she’s this strong independent woman and she’s fine, but what she’s not stepping back to realize is that moving on after a divorce is not easy,” says a friend. “She thinks she’s gotten her life together and has already moved on, when maybe she still needs to process it some more.”
It sounds like the friends would rather she wasn’t “processing” the divorce with set assistant Matthew Rutler, who seems a little too fond of the spotlight, and more importantly, the sauce. “There’s a real concern about this guy, and a lot of her friends feel she needs to get away from himl. Hopefully, what happened [on Tuesday] is a real wake up call. She feels she is embracing her freedom and enjoying life…but now friends are hoping that she takes a step back and focuses on herself for a while.” As always, the anonymous insiders seem hopeful that latest low will also be the last—and that goes double if she’s headed for a weekly gig on prime time TV. With Christina’s divorce from Jordan Bratman now settled (“Jordan has been really wonderful through all this,” says the insider. “He’s been really understanding”), there certainly seems reason to believe—and hope—she’ll be able to handle her new role.

Thank you E! for Christina Aguilera‘s mugshot! As you all know, the singer and her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, were arrested early yesterday morning on charges of public drunkenness. Rutler also got booked for a DUI. Now apparently, this mugshot wasn’t going to be released to the public because authorities aren’t planning to press charges, but as many things do in Hollywood, it got out anyway. This isn’t helping her case exactly, with all the reports of Christina’s excessive drinking and her meltdowns doing the rounds.
The L.A. Sheriff’s Department’s rep Steve Whitmore had commented that Aguilera was quite cooperative during her arrest and “not belligerent in anyway whatsoever” through the process. For someone who was that hammered, we also have to say, that mugshot isn’t half-bad at all. Her hair looks fine, and make-up isn’t too smudged and she doesn’t seem to have a case of drunk-eye! But it’s like what Pink tweeted, “Out of Myself, Britney, and Christina- didn’t everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker? LOOK MA!!! No CUFFS!!!” What do you say, guys? Is Christina on a downward spiral? What’s your verdict on her mugshot?

Yikes! Christina Aguilera and her boyfriend Matthew Rutler were arrested last night. Aguilera was taken in by the LAPD for public drunkenness while Rutler was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. The pair was taken to the West Hollywood Sherriff’s Station at around 2:45am, TMZ reports, and a source says that Aguilera was “extremely intoxicated” and “unable to take care of herself.” This is just one more stumble for Xtina, who’s has a rough year so far after her National Anthem misstep at the Superbowl and reportedly having not-so-discreet sex with Rutler at a family party. It’s been rumored that Aguilera has refused rehab for what appears to be a worsening alcohol problem.

It’s true what they say: when it rains, it pours…terrible news. However, despite what you may have heard,Ã‚Â Jaime Pressly’s divorce isn’t connected to her DUI. “People thinking my divorce is happening because of the situation. Truth is: these are all isolated incidences,” the actress explained. So why exactly is My Name Is Earl actress Pressly divorcing husband Simran Singh after two years? “We fell in love quickly. We got married very quickly. It didn’t work out the way we wanted it to. There’s nothing more to it,” Jaime said. Hmm, bad things always seem to come in threes. Let’s just hope Jaime’s sweater counts as one, so the woman can put her mind at ease.
Whatever jokes we make about Pressly’s booze cruise, the last thing she wants to hear are cracks about whether she’s fit to parent son Desi James. “I don’t ever want my son to grow up and read all these false statements,” Pressly explained. “When I hear the statements made that are so ridiculously unkind and untrue, it breaks my heart. It’s really hurtful on so many levels that I can’t even explain it.” Considering that the truth about Pressly’s DUI is already humiliating enough, we don’t see why anyone would have to fabricate anything.
Perez Hilton reports that Jaime Pressly and her husband Simran Singh have split up. If this news is true, then it’s just another downward spiral in a very bad run for the actress. Pressly was just booked for a DUI, where it was reported that she was way over the legal drinking limit. And right after that, news broke that Pressly apparently owed over $637,000 in federal and state taxes.
We’re hoping her marriage isn’t over but Hilton reports of a source who reveals, “It was very mutual and she’s very sad.” We’ll wait for a confirmation and keep you posted on this development. Pressly was previously engaged to DJ Eric Calvo who she has a son, Dezi, with.
MÃƒÂ¶tley CrÃƒÂ¼e frontman Vince Neil had a rough 2010, what with his arrest for DUI and devastating loss on Skating With The Stars, and his 2011 isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t getting any better. Neil is heading to jail for two weeks as a result of the DUI.
Had Neil not struck a plea deal, he could have ended up in the slammer for six months. Instead, he agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor driving under the influence which means heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll serve two weeks in jail and spend two weeks under house arrest as a result of driving his Lamborghini down the Las Vegas Strip while drunk. (If thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not the most clichÃƒÂ©d rock star thing to do ever, we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know what is.) Neil has a long, sad history of alcohol abuse and this isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t his first time being sentenced to jail. In 1984 he spent 20 days locked up after a drunk driving incident killed the passenger in his car, fellow musician Nicholas Dingley.
