Tatum O'Neal was due to be arraigned in New York Monday after being busted for buying crack cocaine near her home, according to authorities.

Police say the Oscar winner was seen making the illicit purchase at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Tatum O'Neal was tossed in jail overnight and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.

Also arrested at the scene was a 33-year-old man, believed to be a dealer.

The New York Post says O'Neal told cops, "You know who I am, right?" She said she was "researching a part - I'm doing this for a part as a junkie."

She is also quoted as asking detectives, "Can't we just forget about this?"

Tatum O'Neal is the daughter of actor Ryan O'Neal and the ex-wife of John McEnroe. In her autobiography, she says she was abandoned by a drug addict mom (actress Joanna Moore) at age seven and began using drugs by 14.

The winner of the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for Paper Moon in 1973, O'Neal chronicled her struggles with addiction in her 2004 memoir, A Paper Life. The actress completed rehab in 1996 and claimed to be clean.

The Hills' Audrina Patridge and her sister, Casey Patridge, were out having a few drinks in West Hollywood two nights ago - and wouldn't you know it, the evening played out like a real-life episode of The Hills.

According to TMZ, Audrina was saying how she's now "totally exclusive" with grease ball boyfriend Justin-Bobby (a.k.a. Justin Brescia). Ewww.

Not the Best Audrina Photo

Even more amazing is that Lauren Conrad is giving her the cold shoulder, just like she gave Heidi Montag after she became so devoted to Spencer Pratt.

Think LC is a little overprotective?

It gets worse. Audrina said she is seriously thinking about moving out of LC's house in The Hills and ... moving in with Justin-Bobby! OMFG, WTF!?

What do you think about this latest batch of Hills drama: Should Audrina move in with J-Bobby? Should Lauren Conrad chill the eff out?

Amy Winehouse to the stage over the weekend at Portugal's Rock In Rio festival. Of course, the drug addict showed up late to her own show.

She played for 55 minutes and her voice cracked a couple of times in her set. She told the audience she was having "throat issues."

That may or may not be code for alcohol and crack addiction

"OMG Clay Aiken is my Hero," writes one fan on a Clay site.

"I love him and wish him the best of luck!"

Adds another on the same site:

Still, some have expressed doubts about Clay Aiken's impending fatherhood.
