Hey, you know what always used to put me in an awesome mood?
My parents’ divorce. That was so much fun. In fact, when I look back on it, the only thing that could have made that particular point in my life better was a reporter in my face.
Haylie and Hilary seem to agree, as they cuss out some paparazzi who won’t leave them alone as they leave their parents’ divorce hearing.
Rock on, girls.
The fun starts around 1:45.

It’s a happy holiday for the family of John Graziano.
He’s been in a coma since that horrible accident involving Nick Hogan, but he was recently semi-conscious, and even opened his eyes.
According to Debra Graziano, her son is still unable to breathe without a machine and remains unable to speak, but seems to be making strides toward some form of communication. She said John recently leaned away from her when she tried to touch his face.
I know we’re all praying that John makes a full recovery.
Don’t do stupid shit, people!!!!

This is fabulous.
Nickelodeon is considering airing a special about sex and love after news broke that Zoey 101 skipped out on Sex Ed.
For the special, Nickelodeon confirmed it’s talking with Linda Ellerbee, the veteran newswoman who has stepped in frequently in the past with shows on talking to children about difficult issues in the news. “I think it’s important that something be done,” Ellerbee told The Associated Press on Thursday. “But I think it’s important that it be done in a measured way, and not just to feed the beast of news stories.
I actually think this is pretty cool of Nickelodeon. It’s definitely important these issues be addressed with its young audience, since this country is kidding itself if it thinks its tweens aren’t doing the nasty.
Let’s play a fun game, kids:

It’s hard to compete with the Spears sisters. You can work as hard as you want; nothing’s more interesting than famous trailer trash.
â€œAshlee canâ€™t believe this happened. Sheâ€™s so disappointed,â€ said a source. â€œHer sister, Jessica, grew up in the shadow of Britney; it took years for Jess separate herself from her. How ironic that Ashleeâ€™s big day ends up spent in the shadow of Britneyâ€™s little sister.”
Hollywood is so unpredictable!

Daily Mail has an article today about the charges 19-year-old Casey Aldridge could face for impregnating 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears (if he was, in fact, the one who did it).
Louisiana law defines this unlawful carnal knowledge as “sexual intercourse with consent between someone age 19 or older and someone between age 12 and 17.”
In Louisiana a person can only legally consent to sex at age 17. If aged 15 or 16, the other person involved must be no more than two years older for the act to be considered legal.
But Aldridge wouldn’t fare much better if the “carnal” act happened in California, where Spears lives while on the set of her Nickelodeon TV show Zoey 101.
The Californian Penal Code states that any person who engages in an act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor under 18 who is not more than three years younger than the perpetrator, is guilty of a misdemeanour and faces up to one year in a county jail.
But Californian criminal defence attorney Jim Hammer says: “If Aldridge is actually more than three years older he could be up for a felony, which carries a maximum three years in prison.â€
If the sex took place in Louisiana, he could be in for 10 years.
Now, help me out here, legal eagles: do the parents have to press charges for any of this to happen? Or can the state press charges? And is it likely that they will?
Weigh in, smart people!!!

Lindsay Lohan must be getting paid big bucks by Ariva — she was photographed last night with the quit-smoking gum once again. But, as we know, Lindsay has not yet quit smoking.
Maybe she oughtta share some with Katherine Heigl.
