Gilbert Arenas of the Washington Wizards is known as Agent Zero, a nickname presumably derived his uniform number ... or his total number of brain cells.

The NBA star is in legal hot water after a prank gone awry. Perhaps he should have brought a squirt gun to work instead of keeping the real thing in his locker.

Arenas is set to meet with law enforcement officials today about a locker room dispute in which he supposedly pulled a gun on teammate Javaris Crittenton.

Here's the situation: Arenas admitted bringing three unloaded firearms to the Verizon Center, to get them out of the house and away from his kids at home.

But before a December 21 practice, he laid the guns on a chair, then told Crittenton to pick one and make good on a threat that stemmed from a card game on a late-night flight from Phoenix back to Washington two days earlier.

As the card game got more expensive, Crittenton joked about what happens to people who don't honor debts. Arenas has a reputation as a joker and laying out the guns may have been a way of trying to diffuse tension between the two.

Instead, the gesture enraged Crittenton, and according to the N.Y. Post and Yahoo! Sports, Arenas and Crittenton wound up drawing guns on each other.

"I can't speak on that," Arenas said, declining to elaborate.

"But if you know me, you've been here, I've never did anything (involving) violence. Anything I do is funny ... well, it's funny to me."

We'll see if local, federal and NBA officials agree.

Even if Arenas' legal headaches don't result in any charges, he still could face a lengthy suspension from NBA commissioner David Stern and/or tempt the Wizards to invoke a morals clause in the standard NBA player contract.

That could void the six-year, $111 million deal he signed in 2008.

"I will not walk out of the house without makeup." - Nicole Polizzi

Despite these bold words and many other Jersey Shore quotes to that effect, the overly-tanned and coiffed reality star known as Snooki agreed to take it all off.

Take off her makeup, that is. Not her clothes or anything. Phew ...

  • Nicole Polizzi Pic
  • Snooki Polizzi

Snooki admits she usually takes about three hours to get ready to go out to a club, and she even gets lathered up before she goes to work out at the gym.

The Princess of Poughkeepsie says she first started wearing makeup in 8th grade. "And that’s when I got my first boyfriend, so I was like, 'makeup works!'"

Her favorite brands?

"If I go to a club and I start dancing, it’ll drip down my face, but Avon stays! Some brands don’t stay on that long. I love eyeliner and lip gloss from mark.”

Sounds like she could replace The Hills alumna Lauren Conrad as spokesmodel for the mark cosmetics brand. “I know,” she laughs. “Kick LC out of there!”

Tell us what you think: Snooki looks ...

Tiger Woods has nothing on this guy - although in another 39 years, who knows.

According to Peter Biskind's new biography about Warren Beatty, the 72-year-old acting legend is claimed to have bedded a whole lot of chicks in his life.

The number? Oh, around 12,775. Give or take a handful.

Hilariously, this figure does not include "daytime quickies, drive-bys, casual gropings, stolen kisses and so on." Drive-bys? Gropings? Are you serious?

Warren Beatty was a womanizer. To put it mildly. Allegedly.

Ridiculous as it seems that one could actually have sex with that many different people, the idea that you'd keep track is even sillier. Unless you're going for a record.

Beatty's lawyer, Bertram Fields bashed the book and its sex claims (titled Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America) in a stinging repudiation that says in part:

"Mr. Biskind's tedious and boring book was not authorized and contains many false assertions and purportedly quotes Mr. Beatty as saying things he never said."

In reality, his conquests probably number only in the quadruple digits. No word on whether Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton are among them.

Ashley Samson basically jump-started the sports scandal of the decade when she told the National Enquirer all about Tiger Woods' affair with Rachel Uchitel.

That interview likely played a role in the confrontation between Woods and his wife, resulting in his now-infamous car crash and spectacular fall from grace.

At least 10 other Tiger Woods mistresses have come out of the woodwork since, costing the golfer many endorsements, respect and possibly his marriage.

For that, Ashley Samson got $25,000, a sum she says pales in comparison to the toll it's taken on her - and to what Tiger Woods offered her to keep quiet.

In retrospect, she told the N.Y. Daily News she should have taken the $200,000 his camp offered her not to blow the whistle on Tiger and Rachel Uchitel.

Samson says her decision to talk about Tiger and Rachel resulted in plenty of mental anguish, fractured friendships and her own marriage, which ended.

Ashley Samson, left, outed Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel.

"I'm trying to get my f--king life together and repair my reputation," says Ashley Samson. "It probably would have been better (to accept the $200,000)."

"What ended up happening was a big mess."

Samson says she remains bitter about the way Rachel Uchitel trashed her during interviews once the scandal broke, saying she didn't even know Samson.

Photographs later emerged showing them together, of course.

One time, Samson was lying on a bed next to Uchitel and listening to Uchitel's steamy phone calls with Tiger, who's been married to Elin Woods since 2004.

A month later, an all-out verbal war with erupted.

Samson says she has weighed legal action against Rachel Uchitel, although she won't comment on where she currently stands on that touchy subject.

He may have been rejected by Jillian Harris, but Jake Pavelka was really angling to be The Bachelor the whole time is ready to soar on his new quest for love.

The Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love premieres tonight, and will feature the commercial pilot as he narrows down his search from 25 women to one final lady.

Below are excerpts from an interview Jake gave with TV Guide previewing the new season, being Mr. Perfect, his rules for dating, and the mile high club ...

TV Guide: What did you bring from The Bachelorette to The Bachelor?

Jake Pavelka: When you're on The Bachelorette, everything slows down to a good pace. You start becoming really aware of how what you say affects people and it makes you a lot better at dating and in relationships.

TV Guide: Are you a bit skeptical of the process?

Jake Pavelka: I didn't go in pushing. The show does have a bit of a rough history, with people breaking up or changing their minds, and that's OK. I tried to be very honest no matter how painful it was and I just remained open-minded.

TV Guide: So then it's safe to assume you were in the moment?

Jake Pavelka: The Bachelor

Jake Pavelka: My answer to that is I'm going to go on there to be myself. A lot of the dates and different activities we got to do on The Bachelor were geared around what I would do in my normal life - what dates scream Jake.

[THG NOTE: Does that include girl-on-girl action?]

TV Guide: Last season, some of your fellow contestants (and Jillian Harris herself) thought you were a bit too perfect. How do you respond to that?

Jake Pavelka: I don't know what it is that make Ed and Jillian say that I was too perfect. Something that I see in the dating world these days is a bit of a lack of chivalry. It's gotten so bad that women almost don't expect it anymore.

TV Guide: Do you have dating rules you to like to follow?

Jake Pavelka: After an unbelievable date, if I want to call her the next morning, I'm just going to call. If that turns her off, "he's smothering me, it's too much too quick," then that's OK; we're probably on two different pages.

TV Guide: We have to ask: Have you joined the mile-high club?

Jake Pavelka: [Laughs] I am not a member of the mile-high club, but I'll leave you with this: I aspire to be ... no I don't aspire to be, I will be.

For a dead guy, Michael Jackson comes out with a lot of new material.

We're kidding, of course. But previously unreleased material from the late King of Pop has been made into a movie and multiple songs since his June 25, 2009 demise. Another MJ track leaked this morning, and we've got a snippet here.

"Another Day" is an alleged duet with Lenny Kravitz. Some people are saying the verse Michael sings is taken from an older Kravitz song called "Storm."

Whatever it's from, Michael sure can sing.

Kravitz gave an interview with Spinner shortly after Michael Jackson's death where he mentioned working with him on a song that hadn't been released.

Lenny called that "the most amazing experience I've had in the studio." Listen to the 90-second excerpt below and tell us what you think in our poll ...

What do you think of Michael Jackson's "Another Day"?

In late 2008 and early 2009, the relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Madonna was frequent gossip fodder as the baseball star was divorcing his wife.

It was reported that an "affair of the heart" (or more) with Madge led to a contentious end to A-Rod's marriage, which also produced two small children.

Now it looks like Cynthia Rodriguez may have company.

Actress Kate Hudson reportedly dumped the World Series winner after eight months because "his heart belongs to Madonna," the New York Daily News says.

Hudson warned A-Rod that if he continued talking to the music icon she would leave, and kept her promise when A-Rod kept calling and texting the singer.

Triangle

Is A-Rod still hung up on Madonna - and did Kate dump him for it?

"Kate was jealous," said a source. "She gave A-Rod three chances to stop contacting Madonna. How would you feel if your new boyfriend kept calling his ex?"

Well, if she's his f*%king soulmate, then ...

The source said it broke Hudson's heart but she didn't want to be the other woman: "She said that if Madonna is what A-Rod wants then she can have him."

Madonna has been reportedly tied to Brazilian model Jesus Luz since breaking up with A-Rod in early 2009. The extent of their relationship is rather unclear.

Regardless, this story doesn't jibe with previous reports that Alex called it off because Kate was dating him for fame and publicity and was taking it too fast.

Whatever happened, there's no telling where this Rod will end up next.

Nothing Michael Lohan does comes without the obligatory "well, that's weird" or "what a d!ck" reactions. This would certainly fit into the former category.

While Jon Gosselin battles with one of his ex-girlfriends, Hailey Glassman, another former fling, Kate Major, seems to be getting pretty close to Michael.

Lindsay's dad and Jon's rebound piece have been hanging out recently, and the duo recently got similar tattoos to commemorate ... well, who knows.

"I got a tattoo for the new year. Kate liked it so she got one too. It was not a big deal," Lohan, out on bail after harassing ex-fiancee Erin Muller, said.

Kate Major, Jon Gosselin

Michael Lohan and Kate Major with their mutual d-bag friend.

Michael Lohan and Jon Gosselin were very friendly in mid-2009, and it was Mike who introduced her Kate Major, a former reporter for Star magazine.

While Michael denies being romantically involved with Kate, reports say they spent the holidays in Chicago and once even shared a hotel room in NYC.

That's one way to get back at Jon ... for what, we have absolutely no idea. But you know M-Lo doesn't do anything without a clear agenda in mind.

Dude wrote a fake-suicide Tweet. Just saying.

Tiger Woods' wife may or may not be divorcing his cheating a$$, but she's definitely clearing her head - by going skiing thousands of miles away.

At least we think that the heartbroken Elin Nordegren is that far away from Tiger in the French Alps. No one has seen the guy in a month-plus.

According to the Sun (UK), Elin is seeking refuge in a posh, £5,000-a-night chalet as Tiger continues to live in seclusion at home in the U.S.

As she wrestles with her future, Elin Woods is holed up with her twin sister Josefin and five trusted pals, plus a hired French security detail.

Pals say Elin makes a point of being up at 6:30 a.m. every day and insists on being independent, as per "her traditional family lifestyle."

She has not been seen with Tiger Woods since the car crash outside their Florida mansion which exposed his loooong string of mistresses.

SKI BUNNY: Elin Woods is in the French Alps. Tiger? Who knows.

A family friend told The Sun: "Elin wanted to take her family and close friends away from the minefield Tiger has created by his behavior."

"She has been absolutely torn to pieces by what he has done to her. But she still sees a future with Tiger because of their beautiful children."

Will they reconcile? It's unclear. But "she told him she needed a lengthy time apart to reflect on how they might possibly salvage the marriage."

Tiger's whereabouts since the infamous crash have become a frequently-discussed topic in recent weeks, with little conclusive evidence to go on.

It has been claimed Tiger was seen with Rachel Uchitel - the first woman linked to him - at a party and in a club, but she vehemently denied this.

There were also rumors circulating that he had plastic surgery in Phoenix after Elin smashed his face with a golf club, but that too was debunked.

Artie Lange, a.k.a. Howard Stern's sidekick, has been hospitalized in New Jersey.

The 42-year-old former MADtv star was admitted for an undisclosed ailment.

"Artie is in the hospital," Lange's rep said in a statement. "Artie has chosen to keep this matter between him and his doctor. There will be no further comment."

Lange, who has a history of substance-abuse issues, had been MIA from Howard Stern's satellite radio show for a month and canceled several stand-up gigs.

Get well soon, Artie Lange.

He recently pulled the plug on a New Year's Eve engagement, and per his official website, all of his stand-up dates through February have also been scrapped.

In 2009, Artie Lange made headlines for a DUI bust (for prescription sleeping pills) as well as a profane, homophobic appearance on HBO's Joe Buck Live.

While Lange's health situation and Stern fate remain unclear, perhaps Stern will shed light on it when he comes back from his holiday hiatus Monday.
