Kate and Owen: Officially a Couple!

We’ve known they were together since last August, but Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson stepped out in public together for the first time — for the after-party of the premiere of Owen’s latest film, The Wendell Baker Story. K-Hud also looked pretty cozy with Wilson’s co-star Eva Mendez … or maybe they were both just a little tipsy. But if I were Owen, I’d have a pretty great idea for the after-after-party.

Jamie Pressly’s a Mommy!

My Name Is Early star Jamie Pressly gave birth to a little boy this morning, and — as she announced in November — Pressley and her husband, L.A. DJ Eric Cubiche, named the tyke Dezi. Little Dezi James was born at 7:31 a.m., weighing six pounds and four ounces. According to TMZ:

The name Dezi is in reference to a running joke the couple share; Cubiche often imitates “I Love Lucy” star Desi Arnaz by calling Pressly “Luuucy” every night when he comes home. Cubiche, like Arnaz, is of Cuban descent.

Congratulations to the new parents!!

Paris Won’t Do All 45 Days

She’ll probably do anywhere from four to twenty-four days. Look here:

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — Paris Hilton may spend far fewer than 45 days in county jail for violating probation because of state policies and jail overcrowding, authorities said Thursday.

Ah yes, overcrowding. Stop going to jail Cali people! And shouldn’t they at least consider reserving a V.I.P. room like they do at fancy restaurants?

“It’s possible that it could be 21 days, 23 days. It’s a complicated formula that the state sets down. It’s possible that she could do less time,” (spokesman Steve) Whitmore told The Associated Press.

Um, how complicated are we talking here? I’m assuming we start with the 45 days. And then we divide it or something. Maybe we throw in how many other inmates are around contributing to the overcrowding.

Look, If I’m going to hunger strike while Paris is in the clink I need the exact number. Good God man.

Last year, “Lost” actress Michelle Rodriguez was sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating probation after her drunken driving arrest in Hawaii. She was released in hours because of overcrowding.

Holy Crap! Hours?? Exactly how good was her behavior? Did she knit something? Perhaps a gentle lullaby for a guard? Yipes.

I, for one, did not go to evil blog school to see Paris in jail for only a few hours.

She will not receive any favors because she is a celebrity, he added.

Of course she won’t. The fact that her daddy can donate millions of dollars to any political cause on a whim won’t help her at all. In fact, powerful people have always been treated the exact same way us us, so long as “exact same” means “completely opposite.” Can we run a pool on her exact jail time? Maybe dedicate a slam poetry post to the winner?
