Gwen Stefani Is Helping!

Gwen Stefani After-the-Fires Scholarship

The O.C. native has established the Gwen Stefani After-the-Fires Scholarship (Are those hyphens really necessary? Discuss.), which will be available to graduating high school seniors and college students whose families either lost their homes or source of income in the huge San Diego fires.

I have to admit, when she first hit the scene, I hated Gwen Stefani. Just couldn’t stand the bitch. But she’s grown on me. She seems to have mellowed with age, and this is very cool of her, even if it is also a huge tax write-off.

Underage No More

Katie Cassidy at Foley + Corinna Los Angeles store opening

Katie Cassidy — who turned 21 late last month — showed up to the Foley + Corinna Los Angeles store opening, along with Nicky Hilton, Kristen Cavallari and, my personal fave, Marla Sokoloff (Remember when she was on Full House? Anyone?).

Katie was arrested for underage drinking last month, just days before her 21st birthday.

I cannot wait to see what happens with this girl now that she’s legal.

Britney’s Deposition Is Today!!!

Britney Spears Deposition

Brit-Brit will be grilled on Wednesday by K-Fed’s attorney, the now-ubiquitous Mark Vincent Kaplan.

It’s expected that Britney will be grilled about her past drug and alcohol use, her alleged failure to follow court orders, and anything that reveals whether she’s a fit mother.

Tragically, they’re not letting cameras into the deposition, but I assume at least the transcript will leak.
