With Chris Brown and Rihanna back together, will the singer be charged with beating and/or threatening to kill her - which he was arrested for February 8?

The case will be turned over to the Los Angeles County D.A. next week, and a decision will be made soon after on whether to file criminal charges against Brown.

The two likely charges - making criminal threats and domestic violence.

As for the most serious possible criminal threats charge, we think it's now less likely the D.A. will file because of Rihanna's sudden change of heart.

First of all, the main reason Chris Brown was arrested for this is because he allegedly told Rihanna something to the effect of, "I'm going to kill you."

This is obviously a terrible thing to say, but lots of people say it in the heat of the moment, so it's not the easiest thing to charge someone with.

Compounding the issue is that Rihanna may very well testify that she never believed he meant this threat, and the case looks thin to say the least.

Hollering at the Honies

Chris Brown chats with some jet skiing chicks in Miami over the weekend. No word on what was said, or whether he beat the pair senseless afterward.

The domestic violence charge is another matter entirely.

When a jury sees the pictures of a clearly battered Rihanna, it's probably more powerful than any testimony she'd give. Even if she were to take the stand and say she started the fight or somehow deserved it, it would be a tough sell.

Given the picture, it's going to be tough not to prosecute Brown.

Amazingly, more than half the D.A.'s domestic violence cases involve women who have recanted their stories or gotten back together with the alleged abuser.

Crazy. The impending decision clearly isn't weighing on Brown's conscience, as he spent the weekend jet skiing at Diddy's pad and being a tool in Miami.

Alex Rodriguez is rolling in his grave.

Okay, so the Yankees slugger isn't dead. But he might wish he were after seeing these photos of his one-time girlfriend parading Jesus Luz all over New York.

Considering he basically divorced Cynthia Rodriguez to be with Madonna, this slap in the face has to hurt as bad as the leaked results of his steroids test.

But back to Madonna.

She and Jesus Luz, the 22-year-old model from Brazil that she met on the set of the racy W photo shoot and allegedly began banging shortly thereafter, went out for a romantic meal on a snowy Sunday night in New York City...

Jesus Luz, Madonna Photo

Madonna got out of her car first then waited for Jesus Luz to get out, and they then walked into the restaurant together, in full view of the paparazzi.

After a two months-long vacation in St. Lucia, Amy Winehouse arrived at London's Gatwick Airport on Sunday, with her sights set on a new home.

According to a source, she'll be living the suburban life - miles away from the gritty area of Camden where her apartment was ransacked in January.

Winehouse was trying to sneak past waiting celebrity gossip photographers by using a back exit where her car was waiting, but when a snapper caught up with her she was more than happy to stop and pose and have a short chat.

She's Baaaack!

The Grammy Award-wining star said that she couldn't believe that she was back in London and that she didn't realize how much she really missed it.

Of course, her return to the UK got off to a predictably shaky start after she got into an altercation on the flight home from St. Lucia. Amy Winehouse allegedly lashed out at a fellow airline passenger after "he gave her strange looks."

Sounds about right.

We're glad to have her back, although her new neighbors in the North London suburb she plans to reside in may not share that sentiment. "House prices have fallen enough without Amy Winehouse taking up residence," one told the Sun.

You know, we wondered if she'd actually have the opposite effect, but with Blake Fielder-Civil just released from prison, there's no way that's the case.

His pro baseball career never exactly panned out.

Seriously, dude sucked, check out his weak stats.

His turn on reality TV ended up being short-lived.

Seriously, Lauren Conrad dumped him pretty quick.

He then dated Amanda Bynes, but she nixed that.

Her reason? He was exploiting her celeb status.

What's Doug Reinhardt to do after such a run of bad luck?

We believe the answer is quite obvious: Get together with the one person in Hollywood who never minds being exploited (sometimes on film), and with whom it's far easier to hit a home run than it is against even a minor league pitcher ...

Paris Hilton partied it up with her rumored boyfriend du jour as they leave Teddy’s in L.A. Saturday night. She looks happy being used, but she's used to that, and seriously, who can blame her. Doug Reinhardt's charm is quite breathtaking.

His words, on his official site, not ours.

The downside of hooking up with Paris Hilton, of course, is that there's nowhere to go from there. You're damaged goods, Doug. Think about it. How much ass has Stavros Niarchos gotten since they broke up? We rest our case.

From The Hills to the New York Times bestseller list?

Maybe that's pushing it, but the MTV reality star's name is officially gracing the cover of her first novel, L.A. Candy, which hits stores June 16.

Lauren Conrad Hairstyle

Conrad's publishing debut is a fictional story about a 19-year-old girl named Jane Roberts who has not-so-subtle similarities to the author.

"Roberts can't wait to start living it up," the official book synopsis says. "She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun."

Wonder when Scarlett stabs Jane in the back repeatedly, gets a loser boyfriend and has kinds of plastic surgery. Yes, Heidi Montag, we went there.

Conrad's novel is said to be the first in a three-book series about the protagonist, so there's room for all kinds of creative liberties in the new volumes.

In the novel, the two are approached by a producer who wants them to be on a reality version of Sex and the City. It's like art imitating life imitating art!

The book is about "what it's like to come of age in Hollywood while starring in a reality TV show, written by a girl, Lauren Conrad, who has experienced it all firsthand," the synopsis of L.A. Candy says, and it's hard to dispute that.

We just hope that whomever LC got to ghostwrite this work of fiction took the time to say "like" and "seriously" every other word.

When Britney Spears takes the stage at the New Orleans Arena on Tuesday, March 3 - the opening night of her Circus tour - the stakes will never be higher.

Singles such as the title track, "Womanizer" and "If U Seek Amy" are burning up the radio, but if Spears can't hack it live, she'll never be truly back on top.

After two years of personal drama, this concert tour will either make or break the professional comeback Larry Rudolph has been orchestrating since last fall.

According to sources, Britney Spears, 27, who left Friday for Louisiana, has been hard at work preparing for the show, which will feature her signature sexy dance moves, a stage filled with three circus rings, and magic tricks.

"She's pretty determined," a friend told celeb news mag People. "She missed singing and performing and the freedom of that. It gives her an escape and it's what she loves to do, so she's definitely thankful to be doing that again."

Britney Spears Then and Now

Although the star seemed to be back to her old form when she sang "Womanizer" on Good Morning America in December, the concert will be her biggest since her epic meltdown at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards (above, right).

As for Spears' last tour, waaaaaaay back in 2004, that was canceled after the singer injured her knee during a video shoot. She spent her newfound free time with then-boyfriend Kevin Federline; they were engaged that summer.

Bottom line? Girl is way past her musical prime (see above, left). Can she recapture the live magic? And will fans still turn out in droves to support her?

So far, the buzz for the upcoming 31-city outing is strong. Tickets have sold well, with some shows already sold out even in these tough economic times.

Of course, some interest may stem from the sideshow that is her personal life.

Wednesday, her father and conservator, Jamie Spears, was granted an extension on a restraining order against his daughter's ex-manager Sam Lutfi.

Molly Malaney may not have made headlines at the onset of The Bachelor season (well, except on this site), but she caught Jason Mesnick's eye from day one.

The Michigan native has the whole package: She's athletic, pretty, funny, laid back, and surprisingly un-crazy for a girl who would try out for The Bachelor.

No wonder she and Jason have such a connection.

She's made it to the finals of this 13th season of the show, and while she may be the underdog to Melissa Rycroft going into the finale, don't count her out.

Especially not if these Bachelor spoilers are to be believed.

Rumors of a "shocking" ending and an "intimate" special afterwards have the show's fans abuzz. Whatever happens, we'll be brimming with anticipation Monday.

In honor of the season finale, here's a tribute to Molly Malaney.

From the moment The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick first laid eyes on Melissa Rycroft, he was smitten with the gorgeous former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

The more we got to know this eligible bachelorette - seeing her open up and show her emotional, vulnerable side - the more she endeared herself to fans.

It's no surprise Jason is flat-out giddy whenever she's around...

Melissa Rycroft and Jason Mesnick

She's made it to the final two on this epic season of the reality show, and by every indication, Melissa Rycroft has a good chance of winning the final rose.

Whether she ends up with Jason after that is another story.

The Bachelor spoilers predicting a shocking ending will either be very right or very wrong. But the dust will settle Monday, and we'll be there watching.

In honor of the season finale, here's a (gorgeous) photo tribute to Melissa.

Michelle Obama's first official portrait as First Lady of the United States (and unofficial First Lady of Fashion) was released by the White House on Friday.

She appears in a Michael Kors black shift dress and pearls in the photo, taken in the famed home's "Blue Room." Here she is looking stunning as always:

In an interview with Andre Leon Talley for the new issue of Vogue, she opens up about helping Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, adjust to life in Washington, D.C.

"I'm going to try to take them to school every morning - as much as I can," she says. "But there's also going to be a measure of independence. And obviously there will be times where I won't be able to drop them off at all."

"I always like to be a presence in my kids' school," the First Mom added. "I want to know their teachers; I want to know the other parents."
