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:

Enjoying downtime in L.A. before she hits the road for Circus tour dates in Australia, pop star Britney Spears is making the most of normal life these days.

She just returned from a brief family vacation in Mexico, and yesterday, she took sons Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline to the movies. What a nice outing.

Here's the cute family en route ...

Pacify This!

Britney Spears, Jayden James and Sean Preston go catch a flick.

Kids. They grow up so fast. Sometimes, it's hard to come to grips with the fact that three or four years have passed by ... and that they can stop using pacifiers.

Seriously, Britney. Are you just shoving that in Jayden James' mouth so that he won't talk? We wouldn't be surprised if he's still rocking that in middle school.

Oh well, at least she's not barricading herself in the bathroom with him.

Ho-tel heiress Paris Hilton actually went out in public with boyfriend Doug Reinhardt last night ... at Gulfstream restaurant in the Century City shopping mall.

Yup, Paris going out to dinner at the mall. What is she, middle class?

Hardly, but an E! source has another explanation: Paris is "not really ready to reintroduce herself as dating Doug again." Yes, she's keeping a low profile.

Talk about the world turning upside down. What's next? Pigs flying? Lindsay Lohan sobering up? Katie Price wearing pants? Ashlee Simpson having talent?

Even though Doug and Paris got back together after their summer breakup, he was noticeably not her date to the Really Awards, which apparently exist.

In fact, since she gave Doug Reinhardt got a second chance, the pair have been remarkably inconspicuous, seen mostly in less-swanky locales, if at all.

There's no question that parading one's relationship causes it undue stress. Is this the new and improved Paris, committed to making things work with Doug?

Or is she just embarrassed to be seen too often with a guy Lauren Conrad dumped for being too boring, and who many observers regard as a Grade A Tool?

One thing's for certain: She's not getting any more popular by keeping a low profile. Another few months like this and even the haters will forget to care!

Come on, Paris! Step it up! We know you just purchased a new pig as a pet. We want to see you out and about with your older, taller one too.

Steve Phillips' ex-lover Brooke Hundley filed a restraining order against him one day after dropping off a sketchy-ass letter to the ESPN analyst's wife at home.

You know, the letter that stated Brooke and Steve should be together, offered sordid details on their sex life and prompted Marni Phillips to frantically call 911.

On August 20, Brooke sought protection from him, claiming that while at a hotel back in July, Steve Phillips "bought me a strong drink and then cornered me."

At that point, the whack job claims, the married father of four was "trying to persuade me to come to his hotel suite to spend the night." She obliged.

The production assistant claims Steve called her hotel room until she agreed to see him, then "continued to text on a regular basis with inappropriate things."

Brooke Hundley and Steve Phillips: A match made in tabloid heaven.

Brooke Hundley (click here for pictures) "tried to get him to stop" but agreed to meet up with the former Mets GM "a few times after work in the parking lot."

Interesting word choice, as in the note Brooke left for Steve's wife the day before, she wrote, "I'm not just some random girl he had sex with in parking lots."

Lastly, she says Steve tried to ruin her career after word got out that they were sleeping together, calling her a "slut" and saying he would get her fired.

Looks like the threats didn't take, as she spilled the beans to his wife anyway. Hundley ultimately withdrew the complaint against Phillips September 15.

That day, she posted the following on Facebook: "I've seen evil and he wears khaki pants and bright blue polos. Out of court, and back to basketball."

The LAPD has arrested at least four women in connection with the burglaries of Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Patridge, a source close to the case has confirmed.

The crazy part? On top of Lindsay and Audzo, they may also be responsible for hitting the homes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and other stars.

Blonde Lohan

One of the suspected criminals, Rachel J. Lee, 19, is also under investigation for being involved in the $2 million jewelry heist at Paris Hilton's home in 2008.

She is suspected of being the crew's ringleader of sorts.

An LAPD spokesman had no confirmation of the arrests.

Lindsay absolutely can't believe the news.

TMZ reports that Courtney Ames, 18, and Diana Tamayo, 19, were both arrested today for felony burglary. A fourth woman arrested has not been identified.

Patridge's home was broken into on February 23, and more than $43,000 in jewelry and designer clothes were taken. Lohan's home was robbed August 23 and an estimated $128,000 in jewelry, designer clothes and accessories ganked.

Thursday's crackdown follows the arrest last month of Nicholas Prugo, 18, who has already been formally charged with the Lohan and Patridge burglaries.

All appear to have been inside jobs, or at least showed signs of them. No connection has been made to last weekend's Kourtney Kardashian burglary.

From the moment he got engaged to Melissa Rycroft on the season finale of The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick knew he and Molly Malaney would be together forever.

That sounds bizarre, but it's actually true.

Under Her Umbrella. Ella. Ella. Eh. Eh. Eh.

Following his famous "After the Final Rose" switcheroo in March, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney have as happy as clams and talking about getting hitched.

He still caught his true love off guard by placing a diamond and platinum ring in a glass of champagne and passing it to her Monday in New Zealand, however.

"Molly was very surprised; she hadn't expected it to happen then, even though we knew it was a matter of time," her dad Mike told The Grand Rapids Press.

"She was real excited. It was a short conversation, and they hadn't made any plans yet. We just found out ourselves, so this is all breaking very rapidly."

Jason Mesnick asked Molly Malaney's parents for their blessing first.

"Jason called us before the proposal," the Michigan native's father said. "He sent Molly out to get her nails done, and he said he wanted to run it by us first."

Despite the controversial Bachelor finale and the unusual courtship the two had, Mike Malaney is all for it: "We've already determined that he’s a good guy."

He says that Molly Malaney, a 25-year-old fashion buyer for Kohl's, moved to Seattle - where Mesnick lives with five-year-old son Ty - "about a month ago."

"They're just enjoying being together," a source says of the cute couple.

They've yet to set a date. But when they do, it will be a joyous one.

The CW recently picked up Melrose Place for five additional episodes despite lackluster ratings thus far, a move that surprised more than a few TV critics.

Well, it turns out producers at least have a plan to improve the freshman series, starting with the firing of Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, according to TV Fanatic.

Another cast member, Colin Egglesfield, will also be let go along with Ashlee as of January. The show's murder mystery will be wrapped up in December.

Reports say Melrose Place will also take on a lighter tone, which is probably a smart move when they're not exactly dealing with Emmy-winning actors.

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, left, and Colin Egglesfield have been evicted from Melrose Place. The girl in the middle is sticking around for now. No wonder she's smiling!

New cast members, including the return of original series star Heather Locklear, will begin to be integrated as the series transitions into the new year.

All in all, if the show made these moves to save its a$$, more power to it. The murder plot lacked consistency, and it was taking itself too seriously.

And seriously, it is worth nothing that Ashlee cannot act. At all.

We aren't delighting in anyone getting fired from their job, as it's not her fault that she has absolutely no talent, but from a creative standpoint, it had to be done.

Hey, at least it will give her more time to spend with baby Bronx.
