We now pause from our coverage of Lindsay Lohan's insane bender to bring you other breaking celebrity news from the exciting world of celebrity DUIs.

Nicole Richie appeared in court this morning and copped a plea in her DUI case, stemming from her infamous December arrest, and as a result, will do time.

Sources tell TMZ that Nicole Richie either pled either guilty or no contest. Lionel Richie's daughter appeared before the Court Commissioner and was sentenced on the spot.

Given that the "actress" is pregnant, and merely screwed up like a moron, rather than showing complete disregard for the law, we didn't expect her to get a harsh sentence.

Unlike worthless BFF Paris Hilton, Richie did not make a scene and was given a short sentence of 96 hours, or four days in jail. By law, anyone with two DUIs must serve at least five.

She was credited with one day served for the time she spent locked up the night she was arrested. This DUI conviction was Nicole Richie's second, following one a few years prior.

"Wrong way" Richie was arrested on December 11, after she drove the wrong way on a California freeway while high on the weed and Vicodin.

Then again, at least she didn't try to run people over.

Matt Leinart has scored himself another high profile job - and TMZ says that it doesn't involve dodging defensive ends or throwing long bombs.

Although the new movie he's reportedly going to be in could quite possibly bomb.

A spy on the L.A. set of a new Adam Sandler film has confirmed that Leinart got a role in the untitled flick, featuring Scary Movie star Anna Faris.

While sources claim Matt Leinart is serious about the part, we're told that he's only shooting when he's not scheduled to see his 9-month-old son, Cole, with ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron.

The pretty boy QB is reportedly busting his ass to make sure his new acting gig doesn't interfere with either daddy duties or, you know, his football obligations with the Arizona Cardinals.

This news, of course, comes after Brynn Cameron made headlines by saying that Leinart's "Hollywood stuff" is taking focus away from being a good parent, as she complained to the Ventura County Star, "It's kind of hard for me as the mom ... he comes and goes whenever he wants."

While Leinart and Cameron dated at USC, they were broken up by the time she announced she was pregnant. Matt has since been linked to several celebrities, including Kristin Cavallari.

A rep for Matt Leinart wouldn't talk about the movie, but assured the Arizona Cardinal faithful that "Matt is focused right now on his way to training camp. He has a job with the Arizona Cardinals. That's all we have to say about that."

Indeed, Matt Leinart has a job. To lead the moribund franchise to another 6-10 season and get sacked 70 times while earning up to $8 million with incentives.

Leinart is embroiled in a nasty legal battle with Cameron, a 21-year-old USC student and basketball player, who is asking for more than $30K a month in child support from the former USC star, who signed a $50 million deal after turning pro.

Sorry, Rumer Willis, looks like you haven't been chosen as one of the new hosts on The View.

Two months after Rosie O'Donnell walked away from the show, speculation is rife that Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd are about to be sitting in the hot seats permanently.

The Los Angeles Times
and People magazine report that a formal announcement is expected next week regarding these two comedians joining the ABC daytime gabfest.

Sherri Shepherd at the Oscars

The real question on everyone's mind is how they'll get along with Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Her and O'Donnell did not exactly see eye to eye... or toe to toe... or belly to belly...

Welcome, Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg to The View. Let's see how well they dish on various celebrity gossip topics.

Last year, Star Jones looked as ugly and acted as obnoxiously as ever; she also left the program amid backstage rancor and a public clash with Barbara Walters. Since then, she's said The View needs more diversity on its panel.

In a much smoother departure, former panelist Meredith Vieira also left the show last year, to join NBC's morning show Today.

Recently, Goldberg Shepherd and Kathy Griffin have been mentioned as the main possibilities to join Joy Behar, Hasselbeck and Walters at the table. We're not sure why Dina Lohan wasn't considered for the job.

Oh, right. It's because she sucks.

Jessica Smith Mug ShotThey're all coming out of the woodwork now.

In an exclusive interview, former Laguna Beach "star" Jessica Smith â€" who pled guilty on misdemeanor DUI charges in early July, has enlightened us with some sound advice for a fellow drunk driving maniac, Lindsay Lohan.

"I think she needs real help, and not Promises-type of help with the massages and everything," the Laguna Beach grad told 24Sizzler.com Wednesday. "She needs to go to a real place to address her problem. The bottom line is she needs help. She keeps messing up."

We have no idea why the ex of Jason Wahler is commenting on this other than to get attention, but Smith says Lindsay shouldn't get off easy because of her star status:

"I think she deserves whatever she gets. If she gets off just because she's Lindsay Lohan, that's ridiculous. If someone slaps her on the wrist, and is like, ‘oh, you bad girl,' she'll never learn."

Jessica Smith was charged last March after a car she was driving slammed into another car, reportedly causing "great bodily injury" to people in both cars.

She was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to attend one MADD meeting and serve 80 hours of community service, and she says she's at peace with it.

"I drank and drove. There's no excuse for that. I think anything that I got, and had I said it was unfair, it would be ridiculous, because I did something wrong," Smith notes.

She was quick to draw a line between herself and Lindsay Lohan, however.

"My situation is different [from Lindsay's], because it's not like it was my third time. She's just out of rehab and she has an ankle bracelet. I think that's odd. I got 80 hours of community service and I didn't have anything on my record."

So does Lindsay Lohan deserve jail time?

"I would say sure, but jail is scary," Jessica Smith says. "Some people just don't belong in jail. You go crazy in jail. I thought it was unfair that Paris Hilton went to jail."

The 19-year-old, most famous for hooking up with Wahler (cheating on Lauren Conrad at the time) and for sticking around Laguna Beach far too long, says she feels for Lindsay.

"It was horrible. I can't imagine what she's going through. It was embarrassing for me, it must have been like 150 times worse for her... She should just ignore what people say."

Alright, then.

Jessica Smith says she's changed because of her DUI bust, stating "I barely drink anymore, because if anything was to happen when I was drunk, I would go to jail for 90 days... I learned my lesson... one way to show I've learned my lesson, is to show I've changed."

Stop the presses, and please, take a break from Lindsay Lohan drama for just one moment to focus on a fresh-faced Hollywood star not gone wild.

Yes, Hilary Duff is our girl - and she's got a new boy, apparently!

Young Celebrity Fashion Icons

Hilary Duff and her hot body, as well as her reported new beau, Mike Comrie, enjoyed a romantic dinner Wednesday at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica.

Mike Comrie is the center for the New York Islanders hockey team, having played with the Ottawa Senators' Eastern Conference-winning squad in 2006-2007.

His "net" worth doesn't stop there, either - the Canadian comes with quite a load of cash - Mike Comrie is heir to the Brick Warehouse fortune. Puck-er up, Hil!

Here's hoping that this heir is slightly less oily than Brandon Davis or brother Jason Davis, a.k.a. Greasy Bear and Gummi Bear.

Don't worry, Mike, they've set the bar low.

Sources say that Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie have been gettin' hot and heavy for at least a couple of weeks, ever since a wet weekend of jet skiing in Idaho.

This is the hottest hockey player-cute young singer couple since Jordin Tootoo and Kellie Pickler. No, really, she's dating someone named Jordin Tootoo and he plays pro hockey.

Hey, did you hear that Lindsay Lohan was in a drunk driving accident this weekend?

We mean that literally: Did you actually hear it? As in, the 911 tape released by authorities yesterday.

Wreckaliciousness

The call, released by the Santa Monica City Attorney's office, was presumed to be made by Michelle Peck, the mother of one of Lohan's assistants, who had picked up her daughter from a gathering that Lohan also attended.

The caller seemed frantic and claimed she was being chased by an SUV. Below is a portion of the transcript. (Listen to the call here, at a different celebrity gossip blog, TMZ.)

911: Santa Monica Police, what's the emergency?
Caller: Yes sir, I'm on Montana. Is he behind you? Is he behind you?

911: Where are you?
Caller: Right now we're on 7th and Wilshire. We were just about to park our car, we were turning home, and out of nowhere, a huge white GMC came up and... We're at 4th and Wilshire, we're coming down right now, we're being followed by a white GMC, the gentleman jumped out of the car, and OH MY GOD SIR, THEY'RE FOLLOWING US. WE NEED HELP.

Lindsay Lohan has broken more laws than Mindy McCready.

911: Where are you?
Caller: Right now we're on Arizona... Oh my God, are they following us? OK, right now we're on Santa Monica... We're driving to the police station right now... We're at 4th and Broadway. We were just coming home... and all of a sudden he came down a side street... We're driving to the police station... sir, please? The gentleman came out of his car. [inaudible] AAAAHHH, Oh my God! What is he doing? Oh my God, oh my God... Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! (Screaming...police sirens in background).

As People magazine reports in its latest cover story, the 911 call came in after an argument between Lohan and her assistant Tarin Graham, Peck's daughter. Graham then apparently called her mother to pick her up, and Lohan gave chase.

Because no way was anyone leaving her sight! She was all over her assistance like Blake Lewis was all over that random woman at Les Deux.

Not a good week for the young Hollywood set.

One of our favorite young celebrities and aspiring actresses, Rumer Willis, was reportedly in a Maryland hotel room where police arrested a man on drug charges, Access Hollywood has just revealed.

Rumer Willis: Beautiful

Four people, including Rumer Willis, were present in the room at the La Quinta hotel, in Aberdeen, Md., where she is currently shooting the indie film From Within. This is a separate project from the comedy she will soon star in with Katharine McPhee.

Rumer Willis reportedly was not arrested in the raid. However, another individual was taken into custody on charges of marijuana possession, authorities say.

Police were called to the hotel after other guests complained about noise.

Perhaps Rumer decided to channel her inner drug addict and criminal and make like one of her good pals, Lindsay Lohan? We really, really hope not.

And we kind of doubt it. She's the daughter of Bruce Willis, after all, and while he may be easy going, the Die Hard star doesn't take kindly to his daughters getting into trouble.

Just to be safe, though, stay away from Lindsay, Rumer. We suggest you hang out with Hayden Panettiere more instead. There's a young actress with her head on straight!

If you think Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt love the gym, you ain't seen nothing yet!

Larry Birkhead says being a dad is "the best experience of my life." He absolutely can't get enough of the gig.

Dannielynn Birkhead

Moreover, Anna Nicole Smith's ex-lover reveals his pet name for his 10-month-old daughter, Dannielynn.

"I call her 'Little Monkey,' " the Birkhead told People magazine at the Hollywood premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum Wednesday. "[It's] because she just rolls around like a little monkey all the time with me. I call her 'Cricket' sometimes too."

Birkhead also said he's been overwhelmed by all the support â€" and gifts â€" he's received since winning custody of the baby, a tyke that's considered even cuter than Jayden James Federline.

"You know I get tons of things from people who I've never even met before and so everything means a lot to me."

He added, "[Dannielynn] loves all kind of toys. She loves anything that makes noises and sounds and lights, and she's really alert â€" she's just a great baby!"

Lastly, Birkhead makes a statement that maybe Matt Leinart should pay attention to. He says being a dad is "the best experience of my life. I get up early in the morning and I run in as soon as I hear the first cries and I take a peek at my daughter and scoop her up. It's great! It's a lot of fun [and] it's a lot of hours."

Sort of like being the publicist for Britney Spears. Minus all the fun.

Thankfully, their "secrets" for staying in shape are pretty simple.

Work out. There, you're done. Everybody got that? Alright, as long as we're clear. Ah, yes, the minds of Spencer and Heidi something to behold.

In an exclusive video that Spencer Pratt absolutely didn't pay anyone to film, Us Weekly shows The Hills star toning that surgically enhanced, sexy body in rigorous workouts with trainer John Damon.

Not to be confused with Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon, a teammate of Alex Rodriguez, John Damon said that plastic surgery power-walking and occasional kickboxing weren't giving Heidi the body she desired. That was before he got a hold of her.

Three months and six weekly hour-plus gym dates per week later, Heidi Montag says in the new issue of Us Weekly, "I'm more lean and my muscles are defined!"

In the video, which we highly recommend you go watch via the link above, John Damon (who, seriously, must have taken a bribe) gushes about Spencer Pratt and his bubbly girlfriend, who show up right on time - and send flowers if they can't make a workout!

It's a disgusting love-fest that's very painful to watch. Yet we can't stop.

In short, their secret to staying in shape is... to work out. Brilliant. We suggest you now check out a much cuter pair of Hills stars - Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port!
