Desperate to wrest attention away from girl-on-girl action stars Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, LiLo's possible ex, Courtenay Semel, turned up today!

In front of a judge, that is.

Semel officially pleaded guilty in Las Vegas, Nev., to charges of misdemeanor battery. She was given a lenient fine and will have to pay just $250. Lame.

The daughter of former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel allegedly smacked up a security guard at Pure nightclub in Vegas after a wild and crazy night out in August.

K-Fed would surely disapprove of her shenanigans at his favorite haunt.

This is the hottest photo of Courtenay Semel in existence, which says a lot.

In truth, the unattractive girlfriend of Tila Tequila actually tried to attract as little attention as possible when she arrived at the courthouse today.

Courtenay Semel used none other than O.J. Simpson as a diversion - the murderer was about to show up for his most recent kidnapping trial and caused a media circus at the front door, allowing Semel to sneak in the back undetected.

In the strangest development ever, the woman who called 911 and got Heather Locklear arrested the other day is a former Us Weekly staffer who was under investigation by the FBI - and she's the one who tipped off the paparazzi!

Jill Ishkanian allegedly hacked into Us Weekly's computer system to locate celebs after she left the magazine, and was following Locklear in the Montecito area.

Ishkanian watched the actress go to a market. When Heather got into her car, Ishkanian called 911, even though the star's car wasn't even moving at the time.

To make matters worse, immediately after Ishkanian called 911, she called a paparazzi agency to give them a heads up that Heather was about to be popped!

Heather Locklear Mug Shot

Nevertheless, the California Highway Patrol says the motives of Jill Ishkanian are irrelevant to the DUI arrest and the case is in the hands of prosecutors.

One CHP official told TMZ they were unaware that Jill Ishkanian called the paparazzi immediately after she made the 911 call - but it has no bearing.

The decision on whether to prosecute Heather Locklear will be based on the results of the drug tests administered - those due in around three weeks.

The CHP says it has received calls from other people who tell the same basic story as Ishkanian, who also gave a written statement. A CHP spokesperson says "There's no reason to believe the witness is less than credible."

Most PSAs urging people to vote are crap. Rock the Vote? Vote or Die? Crap. If people only care because Diddy tells them to, should they be voting anyway?

At least in this new online video circulating for DeclareYourself.com, some celebrities are using a little reverse psychology and telling Americans not to vote.

The video features Jonah Hill (it's worth watching for his lines if nothing else), will.i.am, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Kate Bosworth, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jaime Foxx, Djimon Hounsou, Eva Longoria, Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman, Sarah Silverman, Ashton Kutcher, Adam Levine, Ellen DeGeneres, Usher, Forest Whitaker and many others.

Following in the footsteps of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Melissa Etheridge and longtime partner Tammy Lynn Michaels are planning to marry.

"Yes, we have four children and we're trying to find the right time," the singer, 47, and her partner, 33, told celebrity gossip TV program Extra.

Etheridge and Michaels first exchanged vows in Malibu in 2003. Now that gay marriage is legalized in California, the couple will make it official.

In 2006, they welcomed twins Miller Steven and Johnnie Rose. Etheridge has two children from a prior relationship with Julie Cypher: daughter Bailey Jean and son Beckett. Their biological father is rock legend David Crosby.

Congrats to the lesbian lovers on their long-awaited legal nuptials!

After multiple nights of hilarious rants, David Letterman has moved on from John McCain and has started picking on someone else: Raffaello Follieri!

Anne Hathaway stopped by The Late Show to promote her newest movie, Rachel Getting Married, which is generating acclaim for the terrific actress.

Oh, Dear!

But her talk with David Letterman eventually moved to the elephant in the room known as Raffaello Follieri. An uncomfortable Hathaway held her own as best she could, but Dave's impromptu interrogation grew awkward. Awkwardly funny, of course.

Later, Anne went on to discuss the dearth of celebrity gossip rumors about her since the breakup. Among them, that she's dating Brody Jenner. Probably untrue, since she doesn't even know who Brody Jenner is. Check out the intervew below ...

It's nice to see Amy Winehouse covered in something besides blood.

Lauren Conrad, by contrast, is almost always looking lovely. But here we have the two celebrities wearing the exact same thing! Who would have guessed?

Tell us, celebrity fashion fans, who wore it best?

Minka Kelly stars on Friday Night Lights.

If you haven't seen that show, we recommend picking up the first two seasons on DVD, then getting DirecTV to watch the third season premiere tonight.

With a female like this in the cast, you can't be let down. Surely her rumored boyfriend, Derek Jeter, would approve. Here's the lovely Minka Kelly ...

If Minka Kelly doesn't make you wanna watch Friday Night Lights, what will?

Continuing her whirlwind tour of New York City, Britney Spears was spotted at a showing of the Tony award-winning Broadway musical In The Heights at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Tuesday night. She was smiling ear to ear!

Oh, and the 26-year-old pop star looked pretty darn good in a snug black mini-dress. Maybe not late 1990s hot, but pretty stunning. Check her out:

Britney is in New York doing press for her new album Circus which is scheduled for release December 2 (her 27nd birthday). The first single is "Womanizer."
