Police have ID'd Rachel Lee as the "mastermind" (a bit of a misnomer, since she's busted) of the roving gang of hooligans known as Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch.

Lee was arrested in Las Vegas Thursday, suspected of organizing a plan to steal cash, jewelry, clothing, luggage, purses and other items from several celebrities.

Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson are on her hit list. Courtney Ames, Diana Tamayo, and Nicholas Prugo are among her accomplices.

When Lee was busted, police impounded a variety of items from her father's home: laptops, photographs of a partially nude woman, photographs of Lee's friends, two hundred $100 bills, a Korean passport and a vial of marijuana.

Sources also say police found a series of items that may have been taken from various celebrities, such as a hat linked to Lindsay Lohan, jeans linked to Rachel Bilson and - here's a shocker - photos of Paris Hilton nude. LOL.

Appropriately for an accused celebrity burglar, Lee told the arresting officers she discovered she was a "person of interest" in the case only after "watching TMZ."

The Burglar Bunch, if they are indeed responsible, ransacked Audrina Patridge and Lindsay Lohan's pads this summer, and also hit Orlando Bloom in early fall.

Lee has denied being involved in any of the burglaries, but we'll see if any of her cronies roll on her. She's currently behind bars in a Clark County, Nev., jail.

The ring leader was among four arrests made earlier today in connection with the high-profile burglaries in Hollywood. All have reeked of inside jobs.

In true douchebag fashion, Jon Gosselin has made sure his lawyer makes a huge, public deal out of him returning $180,000 he was not supposed to withdraw and would have surely kept had a judge not threaten to hold him in contempt.

No one at The Hollywood Gossip has ever been arrested for dealing heroin either, Jon, but you don't see our legal team issuing press releases bragging about it.

Jon's lawyer, Mark Heller, says his client is now in "complete compliance" with a court order that he return $180,000 he stole from a joint account with wife Kate.

The attorney says Kate's the one being shady and hiding funds.

"Unless something happens today [with Kate] she will be going through contempt proceedings Monday," Heller told People, pressing the issue with Jon's ex.

Mark Momjian, Kate's attorney, could not be reached for comment. Kate had been ordered to account for $55,000 she withdrew for household expenses.

You know you're a douchebag if you seek credit for things you're supposed to do anyway. And have really bad hair plugs and delusions about your celebrity status.

Jon accused her of harboring much more than that from book royalties. Kate charged that Jon's withdrawal left her unable to feed her kids or pay bills.

Both sides filed contempt motions against each other for allegedly violating a divorce arbitrator's guidelines for how their joint money should be spent.

These people really suck.

Meanwhile, we knew Jon thinks highly of himself - so delusionally that he thinks his time is worth $10,000 an hour - but we weren't aware it was this bad.

The moron is looking for new avenues to keep his bad hair plugs on the news after TLC renamed his show Kate Plus 8, then pulled the plug on it altogether.

He's wants a spot on celeb editions of The Amazing Race or Survivor. We're for it if CBS crews "accidentally" abandon him somewhere in the South Pacific.

Worst. Dad. Ever.

The White House has released the first official family photo of the 44th President of the United States and his family, taken September 1 by Annie Leibovitz.

The picture of President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha Obama was taken in the White House's Green Room.

Outdoorsy First Lady

Bo the First Portugese Water Dog apparently had a prior engagement.

What a cute photograph. Follow the link for many more Barack and Michelle Obama pictures from their time on the campaign trail and as the nation's First Couple.

This has truly been a memorable week for Lindsay Lohan for several reasons:

  • She did not die (not to be taken for granted with her).
  • She stayed out of jail (also never to be underestimated).
  • She praised the maturity of sister and fellow club-goer Ali Lohan.
  • She's officially allowed back in one of her fave clubs. Go Lindsay!

According to the New York Post, HoHan is no longer persona non grata at Avenue, the hotspot that banned her ass earlier this year following her Tweeting about Justin Timberlake cheating on Jessica Biel by dancing with another woman.

She later claimed her Twitter was hacked. As if that happens. Then again, most people don't make their voicemail password 1234, so who knows with her.

Healthy Lindsay

In any case, the alleged actress "besieged the management with calls and e-mails to let her back in, and she promised to be on her best behavior."

They capitulated, and this past week, she's already hit Avenue twice.

God help us all.

We plead with those close to her again: Save Lindsay Lohan!

MLB Playoff ticket: $150.

Beers at $8 each: Probably around $80 in this case.

Taking a drunken dip in a waterfall: Idiotic Priceless.

It's looking like the New York Yankees will be drenched in champagne after the American League Championship Series concludes, but one L.A. Angels fan was determined to take a bath of his own during Game 5 Thursday night.

Yes, there is a waterfall beyond the outfield at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, and yes, some plastered guy jumped in. Gotta love L.A. fans. So fixated on the game.

Our favorite part? Yankee skipper Joe Girardi looking on in disgust - and not just because they were trailing 4-0 (N.Y. lost 7-6, but still leads the series 3-2).

Check out the video below ...

As the adorable middle child Stephanie Tanner on Full House from 1987-1995, Jodie Sweetin was America's sweetheart. Who knew that when the cameras stopped rolling, she and Mr. Bear were in the bathroom getting hopped up on meth.

Okay, maybe he wasn't her enabler, but it wasn't long before Jodie did become a full-fledged drug addict. Now, she's ready to cash in on those wild times!

Jodie Sweetin, Zoie Herpin

She's putting pen to paper and detailing her sordid life full of drug use, overdoses, drunk driving and more in a new memoir, hilariously titled Unsweetined.

"I wanted to prove that I wasn’t the girl from Full House, that I could get more trashed than everyone else," she writes. Hey, at least it's probably honest.

Jodie Sweetin, who recently married and split with husband Cody Herpin, has only happy memories of her time on the Full House set. But after that?

"Being the real me wasn't interesting enough," she laments.

Stephanie and D.J. Tanner ... er, Jodie Sweetin and Candace Cameron.

In fact, it was before she even set foot in high school that she was getting drunk. At co-star Candace Cameron's wedding, she passed out in the restroom.

The year? 1994. She realized, "I was Jodie Sweetin and I was an alcoholic."

From there, she graduated quickly to pot, cocaine, ecstacy and crystal meth.

Throughout short-lived love affairs and stints in rehab, she continued using.

Until quite recently, too. Jodie fell off the wagon last December and officially rock bottom when she drove drunk with infant daughter Zoie in the car!

Now that's train wreck material! If nothing else, her impressive feats should blow Dustin Diamond's book about Saved By the Bell out of the water.

A California pharmacist testified that he refused to fill a prescription for Anna Nicole Smith written by Smith's psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, in 2006.

Why wouldn't he do so? Because the high doses of medication the doc wanted to give Smith amounted to "pharmaceutical suicide." That's a fairly good reason.

Ira Freeman said he received a request for painkillers, muscle relaxants and sedatives on September 15, 2006, four days after Smith's son Daniel passed away.

According to the Los Angeles Times, he declined to fill it: "If she got ahold of these medications, it could have fatal consequences," he told a judge Thursday.

Anna Nicole Smith died five months later of a drug overdose. Reports of her final days are not pretty, and those responsible could pay dearly with jail time.

Is Dr. Khristine Eroshevich responsible for Anna Nicole's death?

The testimony took place during a preliminary hearing to determine whether Eroshevich, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Smith's boyfriend, Howard K. Stern, should be tried on felony charges of conspiring to aid the drug addict Smith.

The three face 23 felony counts of doing so through fraudulent means.

Freeman said Eroshevich's prescription for the Playboy model called for a staggering eight times the recommended dosage of a hypnotic sedative called Dalmane.

He also said Eroshevich seemed unfamiliar with the meds she was ordering. He recounted a toxicologist saying Eroshevich "was way out of her league on this."

An autopsy revealed Smith's death was caused by a combination of toxic drugs, especially chloral hydrate, Benadryl, clonazepam, diazepam and lorazepam.

Earlier this week, another psychiatrist testified that Smith tried to quit prescription drugs in 2006, when pregnant with her daughter, but failed to do so.

Luckily, Dannielynn is healthy and happy, living with dad Larry Birkhead.

Author, blogger, daughter of U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and recent Twitter photo controversy magnet Meghan McCain turns 25 on this 23rd today of October.

Happy birthday, Megs!

McCain, who was criticized for displaying some cleavage online in large part because she is a Republican and happens to have breasts, despises labels.

Well, we've got one for her just the same: Awesome!

You may not agree with everything she says, but she's refreshingly candid, secure in who she is (even if you can't put it in a box) and kinda funny, too.

Here's a birthday tribute of Meghan McCain pictures:

Oh, and we suppose it's worth mentioning that Mr. Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Reynolds, also celebrates a birthday today (his 33rd). Here's a photo for the ladies:
