Jodie Sweetin and her estranged husband, Cody Herpin, "are working hard to avoid a protracted custody battle," the actress' lawyer said.

The former Full House star, 26, and Herpin, 31, attended their first joint mediation session this week at an Orange County, Calif., court.

"They're currently trying to work things out regarding the custody of and sharing of their child," attorney Wilma Presley says.

"As far as reconciliation as a couple goes, you just never know."

Despite the recent drama, "Jodie is doing very well," Presley added. "She had a very nice Christmas. She had her daughter on Christmas Eve and morning, and so far, the sharing has been smooth. There haven't been complaints from either side."

Presley says that Jodie Sweetin is also "working hard on maintaining her sobriety and attending a 12-step program," as well as dedicating time to her book, which is an autobiography about both her childhood stardom and personal struggles.

K-Fed's new girlfriend, Victoria Prince, is even more low rent than he is - she's no rent, if you believe the landlord suing her for skipping out on payments!

Sources tell celebrity news site TMZ that Victoria Prince got booted from her Beverly Hills home in September after she didn't pay rent for six months.

Allegedly, V-Prince struck some sort of deal with her landlord to pay him back rent in installments, but never actually made any of the payments.

Now, the landlord is suing Prince for $7,500, but there's a catch - nobody knows where to find her! Wonder if K-Fed and the kids are hiding her.

Victoria Prince is kind of a badass, having been arrested for assault and disturbing the peace, waging a terror campaign against three kids in high school (really), underage drinking and possessing a dangerous weapon on school premises (a stun gun).

The landlord allegedly tried to serve her where she works, but security wouldn't let the process server in. Hmm. Try PURE nightclub in Las Vegas next?

Calls to Victoria Prince were, shockingly, not returned.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have officially welcomed their second daughter - and one of the first celebrity babies of 2009!

The actress's rep tells People magazine as of last night: "Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck gave birth to a healthy baby girl."

Tiger and Charlie Woods

The baby was born Tuesday in Los Angeles. No other details were immediately available. Garner and Affleck, 36, are also parents to daughter Violet, 3.

According to reports, a smiling Garner was spotted being wheeled on a roll-away hospital bed as she was taken to her room. A blanket was draped over her, and it appeared that she was holding the baby. Shortly after, the hospital staff brought in a portable bassinet and heart monitor to check on the baby.

In the weeks leading up to the birth, Jennifer Garner stayed close to home, picking up Violet from preschool and even treating herself to a mani-pedi.

Just days before giving birth, Jen was spotted with Violet at the Farmer's Market in Pacific Palisades and grabbing a decaf coffee at Caffe Luxxe in Santa Monica with a girlfriend. Ben was probably there for moral support.

Garner confirmed her second pregnancy in August.

Stay in school and use protection, kids. That's the moral of this story.

Levi Johnston, 18, the boyfriend of Governor Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol Palin, left his position in an electrical apprenticeship program after a newspaper columnist raised questions about whether he was eligible to participate.

Since knocking up the younger Palin, Johnston had been working for ASRC Energy Services Inc. in the oil fields of North Slope County, Alaska, since the fall.

In his column for the Anchorage Daily News, area radio talk show host Dan Fagan said that federal regulations require members of the program to possess a high school diploma – which Levi Johnston does not.

He also questioned Sarah Palin's role in securing the job for Johnston. The governor has denied any help in securing Johnston the job.

THERE, THERE: At least Levi still has the support of Bristol Palin.

In an interview with the Anchorage Daily News, the former Republican Vice Presidential candidate said she considered Fagan's column "a political potshot taken at me," one that threatens to "destroy a young man's opportunity for work."

Levi Johnston's father Keith tells the newspaper: "He felt it was the best thing to do to kind of calm the waters, so to speak."

Keith Johnston, who also works as a construction engineer for the company, called the diploma discrepancy an oversight.

"It's just something that slipped through the cracks," he says.

Johnston's father also said he felt like the media was focused too severely on his son, who became a father with Bristol Palin on December 27.

"You guys are watching him so tightly," Johnston said. "He's being treated different than an average 18-year-old kid. He has to do everything by the book now."

At least he can look forward to a windfall from Tripp Johnston photos.

The Hills' Spencer Pratt acknowledges his Cabo San Lucas marriage to Heidi Montag was a total sham - but only because he was uninformed about the legalities.

“I didn’t even know you have to legalize a wedding,” claims Spencer, who tied the knot with Heidi, 22, in a nonbinding ceremony on November 19 in Mexico.

“I thought growing up, you say ‘I do’ and you’re married.”

Wonder if he envisioned camera crews and six-figure photo deals growing up. In any event, Heidi Montag agreed with his assessment, according to In Touch Weekly.

“We had our elopement, and to me, that counts,” the plastic princess said at Christian Audigier nightclub in Las Vegas on December 31, but she added that they are now planning to make it official - and will spare no expense.

“We’re going to have a bigger wedding for friends and family,” she said, and “We’ll definitely have it on TV because of the fans and haters,” interjected Spencer.

We'll be watching, we admit it. In the meantime, if you have the stomach for it, check out the Spencer and Heidi's wedding album from Cabo in November!

Wedding bells will apparently be ringing in the near future for former Charmed actress Alyssa Milano, as reps for the star announce that she said yes to a marriage proposal from boyfriend David Bugliari on December 18.

The two have dated for over a year - and he's also her agent at Creative Artists Agency. In December, David Bugliari confronted some dude Alyssa Milano called "obsessive" trying to get access to the actress at her home.

Talk about standing up for your woman!

David Bugliari

Alyssa Milano was previously married to made-up musician Cinjun Tate way back in 1999. The couple separated and divorced that same year. She then went on to date approximately half the players in Major League Baseball.

The former Maxim and Stuff staple, who recently appeared in a recurring role on My Name is Earl, also briefly dated Justin Timberlake.

The second installment of The City was kinda weak last night, but what are you gonna do. It's hard to one-up Jason Mesnick on The Bachelor on the same night.

Oh well. In typical fashion, The Hollywood Gossip staff has recapped the episode, "The L Word," awarding and deducting points as it sees fit. Here's our rundown ...

On to the rankings!

"Have fun," Duncan, Erin Lucas' boyfriend, says to Whitney, who's still crashing on Erin's couch, or so we are led to believe. Translation: Get. Out. Plus 4.

No offense to Erin and Dunc, but their relationship seems like a bit of a snooze-fest. Titanic, really? And some of their conversations may actually make us yearn for the awkward silences and passive-aggressive retorts on The Hills. Minus 5.

Whitney is at a photo shoot when Jay calls. He found an apartment for her to look at. "I feel like I should see it," she tells an unmoved Olivia, "but obviously, work is my first priority." Translation: Please tell me it's okay for me to leave. Plus 2.

Said apartment is fairly nice. Like $6,000/month nice. No word on how she'll be paying for that, but on The City, you don't ask questions. Minus 1.

Is Whitney Port channeling her inner Audrina being a pushover these days?

An annoying Olivia Palermo offers the following unsolicited advice to Whit: "You have to be independent, I hope you're not too demanding on Jay. You have to be your own person." She's either a stuck up b!tch, being fed lines by MTV, or both! Minus 5.

Olivia talks to her cousin, Nevan (Plus 3, because of course she has a cousin Nevan), who says he just got a $100 fine for spitting in public, but he thought it was perfectly legal, since he saw some chick do it on Flavor of Love. Plus 8.

While helping Whitney move in, Jay Lyon reveals his inner Justin-Bobby, denouncing Erin's declaration of love for Duncan. Watch yourself, Whit. Minus 7.

Whitney and Erin are definitely cute as BFFs, boring as the latter might be. Plus 3.

After being up front with Jay about their relationship, Whitney backs down big-time, saying she'd like to be Jay's girlfriend "if he wants" and having no response after he pretty much says he's not that into her. Missed opportunity, girl. Minus 9.

TOTAL: -6! A lackluster effort this week, City. The jury's still out on this show! Better step it up next week. Leave a comment with your own scores ...

The future mother-in-law of Bristol Palin pleaded not guilty today to felony drug charges for allegedly selling the prescription painkiller OxyContin.

Sherry Johnston - the 42-year-old mother of Levi Johnston - was arrested December 18 on six felony drug charges. She was released on $5,000 bail.

According to the Anchorage Daily News, she arrived in court today without a lawyer, friends or supporters. A trial date has been set for the end of March.

The case against Sherry Johnston began in September - during the heart of the McCain-Palin presidential campaign - when investigators intercepted a package containing 179 pills of OxyContin, often referred to as "hillbilly heroin."

Two suspects were arrested but then agreed to serve as informants and made undercover purchases from Johnston in exchange for a lighter sentencing.

On October 1, Levi Johnston's mother allegedly sent the following to a buyer, among with other text messages: "I wish I could but there's only so many times I can go for coffee a month. The rest of the time I need to have it at home!"

Don't we all. After making two transactions, a third purchase took place on November 26. The informant was wired and this time police videotaped the meeting.

Sherry's not guilty plea comes a week after Levi and Bristol welcomed a boy, Tripp Easton Michael Johnston, in Palmer, Alaska. The two are set to wed this summer.

The Hollywood Gossip was thrilled to see The Bachelor return for a 13th season last night - with none other than fan favorite Jason Mesnick the center of attention.

Below is our official (highly editorialized) recap of some of the highlights and lowlights from the season premiere, which was both entertaining and nauseating ...

Plus 10 for obligatory Ty footage, but for not exploiting him too badly.

Note to Renee: Vision boards scare men and not in a good way. Minus 2.

Does anyone have an easier, better job than Chris Harrison? Plus 5.

Minus 13 for Sharon: Quitting your job (in this economy, no less!) for a chance at love with a stranger is one thing; but you were a teacher. Of children. And now you wanna win over a single father? Good luck with that.

Early dark horse to win it all: Molly. The 24-year-old Michigan cutie is smart and sassy - and totally in it for love. You can tell. Plus 11.

Did ABC expect us to believe certain dubbed over segments were being spoken live? Budget cuts in the editing department, guys? Minus 27.

Hey, Raquel: Dancing with the Stars films on a different set. Minus 2.

Jason Mesnick at the Rose Ceremony

Jason Mesnick ponders his difficult decisions pre-Rose Ceremony.

Melissa looks like a skanky Mandy Moore. Nice. Plus 4.

An awful President and THREE Bachelor contestants? Minus 9 for the State of Texas.

Quote of the Night: Our slightly-uncomfortable bachelor's mumbled response to Lauren's government quiz: "Are we really talking about this?" Plus 12.

Plus 8 for Jason Mesnick putting mustard on his hot dog. Not indicative of a damn thing, but the best condiment. Minus 4, though, because what if we like hot dogs plain? Are we not human?! Way to alienate millions of viewers, Jillian.

Plus 15 for ABC's new twist in which the girls thought they were voting off Megan - the first step in admitting the show isn't really about Jason finding love. But Minus 4 for Megan's response. You wonder why peeps hate you.

Minus 5 for Stephanie's obvious face lift, making her the first 34-year-old in Bachelor history to look 54. Our Nicole Kidman Plastic Surgery Award winner, ladies and gents!

DeAnna Pappas, how did you dump this guy?!? Minus Infinity.

TOTAL: -Infinity (-1)! Not bad for a premiere, which can often be boring. Hopefully things improve in the coming weeks. Leave a comment with your own score!
