Breaking political news: Barack, Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama are finally welcoming their new puppy to the White House!

The black Portuguese water dog comes from a kennel in Texas. It was sold to a family who gave it back, so will be "re-homed" to the first family.

Shrewd move by Barack Obama, choosing a rejected dog who needs a second home. Not only is it nice, but animal rights peeps will go less insane.

The six-month-old dog is named Charlie, though the Obamas will rename it.

A website, FirstDogCharlie.com, claims to have a photo of him! See below!

Charlie will be presented to the family by U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy, whose own Portuguese water dogs, Splash and Sunny, are from the same kennel. Sasha and Malia's new pet is actually from the same lineage as the Kennedy dogs.

The arrival of the First Pet has been a hot topic - almost as much so as Michelle Obama fashion - ever since the president promised his daughters Malia and Sasha, ages 10 and 6, that they would get a puppy if he were elected to the presidency.

After taking office, the U.S. President said they'd get a dog in the spring, as the family itself would still be getting acclimated to its new digs prior to that, and the warmer weather would make his daughters more apt to walk it.

The Portuguese Water Dog was a natural fit for the Obamas because of Malia's allergies - the breed is one of the few that are completely hypoallergenic.

According to Michelle Obama, the young girls have floated Frank and Moose as possible names for their forthcoming furry friend.

** UPDATE: The First Dog has arrived! Earlier today, a 6-month-old Portuguese Water Dog named Bo was delivered to The White House. Check out a photo of him NOW!

The bowling alley, that is.

Amid rumors that he royally pissed her off by chain-smoking and flirting up a storm at T.G.I. Friday's the other day, Kevin Federline had his game face on – and his yellow bowling ball ready – as he stepped out with girlfriend Victoria Prince.

The Tarzana, Calif., bowling alley where they are headed is, of course, where Federline met the former volleyball star who would go on to be his girlfriend and hopeful future baby mama. He hasn't had a kid in years now, it's time!

K-Fed keeps a firm grip on his ball as V-Prince looks on.

It's been an interesting week for these two in the world of celebrity gossip. In addition to their rumored fight at Friday's, Victoria Prince was also said to have walked in on K-Fed nailing Britney Spears in her tour dressing room recently.

Somehow we're guessing that's not true.

Our reasoning? She would probably have quit the bowling team if she really saw him all up inside his ex-wife like that. There's just no explaining that away.

Redmond O’Neal, the troubled son of Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett, may be looking at some serious jail time after the latest of many, many arrests.

This is what happens when you are on probation, then are busted with heroin. On the premises of a jail, where you were going to visit someone. Wow.

Redmond O'Neal Mugshot

Moreover, he was recently kicked out of rehab ... for drug use.

“Mr. O’Neal was recently discharged from a residential treatment facility after testing positive for meth and because traces of heroin were found in his room,” said a spokesperson for the L.A. District Attorney’s office.

Due to this infraction, Redmond O'Neal cannot qualify for treatment instead of imprisonment. Sounds like Red is headed to the big house this time.

Reports say that he will be sentenced for the violation of his probation on April 17 - and could be slapped with up to three years for that crime alone.

Then there's the heroin possession arrest on its own. Yikes. We just hope he's formally booked again. There can never be enough celebrity mug shots.

Lauren Conrad may be leaving The Hills, but as sad as that will be, her best friend forever Lo Bosworth does think the show can go on without her.

In fact, Lo thinks Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, or collectively Speidi, could probably replace the leading lady as the "reality" series' main act.

"They get great press on their own, so there's always the possibility that the show can do really well with them as main parts," Lo Bosworth told E! Online at the IS vodka-sponsored opening of new Hollywood nightspot Halo.

Lo has officially joined Team Speidi! Sort of.

Lo thinks, however, that the current season five, which debuted last Monday on MTV, may not end ALL Lauren Conrad appearances on The Hills.

"[Lauren] hasn't filmed in weeks and she's really excited about that," Lo said. "I think she'll come back for special occasions and stuff."

"But we just don't know how many episodes she'll return for or if there will be another season. It's really just all up in the air," she added.

In truth, Speidi may already be the headlining act on The Hills. His laying the smack down on Cameron was the highlight of the season premiere, and as we reported, a Spencer and Heidi wedding is supposedly planned for the finale.

Oh, and Spencer already Twittered his approval of Lo's comments, in case you were wondering. He also posted a link to a teaser for Heidi's new music video:

Awesome ... easily a 9.5 out of 10 on the unintentional comedy scale. If you're a real glutton for punishment, follow the jump to hear the full "song" ...

Jon Eardley, the lawyer who claims Britney Spears hired him to torpedo her conservatorship, has just filed legal papers demanding that the pop star appear at a trial in which Eardley has been accused of harassing the singer and her family.

Earlier this year, Britney's father Jamie sought and obtained restraining orders against former hangers-on Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib, as well as Eardley.

Britney Spears' Ass Returns

All three are accused of trying to undermine Jamie and the conservatorship.

The attorney claims that Britney reached out to him, however, and the sketchy voicemail that's circulating online suggests he even may be telling the truth.

With the singer set to return to Los Angeles for Circus tour concerts next week, Eardley is angling for a judge to make Britney testify in a county courtroom.

CAGED: Eardley claims Britney is held captive - by her dad - and wants out.

In his legal papers, Eardley notes that Britney will be performing at the Staples Center on April 16 and 17 (Thursday and Friday). If she's well enough to perform, she's well enough to testify on two points, the attorney argues:

  1. Did she authorize him to take legal action on her behalf?
  2. Did Jon Eardley really cause her "substantial emotional distress," as Jamie claims in the restraining order he has sought against him?

The judge will have to decide if Britney is competent enough to testify and if it's fair to drag her into court. You can bet Jamie will try his best to prevent that.

It would certainly be interesting, however, to hear under oath whether she has really been trying to escape the clutches of her dad, as has been rumored.

Despite completely transforming her face, as well as her chest, the buxom Audrina Patridge insisted in an interview that she hasn't had any plastic surgery.

"People think I've got my nose done. My chin done. I just laugh at it," she told Extra. "I'm just losing my baby fat - everyone grows up and changes."

Frankie and Audrina

"There's always rumors," The Hills star adds.

"People are always going to point things out and it's entertainment. It's funny. Doesn't bother me. Goes in one ear, out the other. I read it, forget it."

The 23-year-old Audrina Patridge - who is currently shopping around her own reality show - also says she understands co-star and friend Lauren Conrad's decision to walk away from The Hills after the show's current fifth season.

"We were all pretty much ready to branch out. Go our separate ways," the girlfriend of dirty Justin-Bobby says. "We feel like it's run its course."

She can say whatever she wants, but we're not entirely convinced on the surgery issue. Especially the chestal region. It's just way too perky.

What do you think ... are they real or fake?

Breaking news: Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are reportedly set to tie the knot on Saturday, April 25, in an undisclosed location in Pasadena, Calif.

"This will be the real wedding," says an E! Online source close to The Hills couple, who last November staged fake nuptials for MTV cameras in Mexico.

USA! USA!

"It's being filmed as the season finale for The Hills."

The infamous twosome has already invited 110 guests or so to the nuptials, but the list is expected to grow even larger as the wedding date nears.

We didn't get ours, guys. Must be a mix up at the post office.

Spencer and Heidi get fake married in Cabo.

A source with supposed knowledge of the Speidi nuptials says they will wed in a sunset ceremony and is looking at a rooftop location for a reception.

Heidi Montag has already picked out her dress and, in fact, on at 3 p.m. on Thursday, had her final fitting at the Monique Lhuillier boutique in L.A.

Will they actually get married this time, legally? Can it be kept secret well enough for them to cash in on their supposed staged breakup first?

We'll see, but we'll be watching, you can be sure of that. We can't get enough. Click to enlarge some pictures from the first Speidi wedding ...

Already accused of bogarting Angelina Jolie's lips and Kim Kardashian's style, Nadya Suleman is now determined to sponge off society as a whole.

But at least we'll be able to watch it all unfold, as a deal for an Octomom reality show, which she has lobbied hard for, will reportedly be signed soon.

Coffeeeeeeee

Sources close to Suleman say that she and her attorney, Jeffery Czech, met with four production companies and are due to meet again in the next few couple of days with executives at an undisclosed network with apparently no shame.

Producers reportedly want to follow the same pattern of other reality shows, with episodes revolving around themes like Suleman learning to drive a 14-passenger OctoMobile, going on a date or having a big family holiday dinner.

Czech acknowledged his odd client's motivations: Suleman is tired of TV cameras and protective of her children's privacy, yet she also wants to ensure that she has enough money to care for them without public assistance.

And whoring them out to a TV network beats getting a job, right?

Speaking of public assistance, Suleman told her local newspaper, the Whittier Daily News, that she is indeed considering applying for federal WIC aid.

Suleman doesn't have health insurance and that all medical costs associated with delivering the octuplets on January 26 were funded by taxpayers.

Oh yeah, and Octomom had six kids before she was even Octomom.

According to the paper, the WIC provides federal grants to California and other states for food, health care referrals and nutrition education for low-income women and children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional risk.

A family of 15 would have to make more than $112,480 through only June 30 to be ineligible for aid. Under the program, the octuplets, the six older kids, and Nadya Suleman can receive baby formula, cereal, milk, cheese, vegetables and juice.

Some say it would cost $2,000 a month for baby formula alone.

"That's a lot of money for formula," she said.

[Smart-ass comment rendered unnecessary.]

With all the negative publicity surrounding her - even though she was the victim in the Chris Brown case - it's nice to see Rihanna getting back to living her life and reaching out to one of her fans and making a little girl's day.

Jasmina Anema, 6, is one of Rihanna's biggest fans. So when her musical idol walked into her hospital room at NYU Medical Center April 2 to visit her, as People magazine reports, the leukemia patient could hardly believe her eyes.

No Herpes Here

"She's really here!" Jasmina exclaimed when Rihanna came in and hugged her. "You are such a beautiful little girl," the singer told the ailing child.

High doses of chemotherapy often leave Jasmina tired, while a bone marrow donor registry works around the clock to try and find her a suitable match.

"But when Rihanna walked in the room, there was no sign of that at all," said her doctor. "Jasmina loves Rihanna. And Rihanna fell in love with Jasmina."

Indeed, the two girls became fast friends, spending more than three hours talking, playing and even indulging in a slumber party-like pillow fight.

Rihanna first learned about Jasmina's plight in early February, when she saw the moving video Jasmina's best friend, Isabelle Huurman, and her mother, Karen Detrick, made appealing for bone marrow donors to save Jasmina.
