Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin is taking the Tori Spelling approach to getting back in the news: A useless reality series no one cares about.

"My husband and I are now shooting our reality show, which is going to be really fun," Sweetin told People. "It's following us and our new baby."

"[It's all about] getting back in the business, especially for me. I think it's going to be a really exciting show. It's definitely going to show my sillier, funner side, and me being a mom. Add in this business, [and] it's going to be a fun show."

We hope the Jodie Sweetin reality show contains action like this.

Jodie Sweetin gave birth to misspelled daughter Zoie in April. The father is a dude named Cody Herpin, who married the recovering meth addict in July 2007.

What's not certain is a home for the show, which is awaiting a network. Amazing that they're not bending over backwards competing for this future smash.

"We don't [have one], but we're actually shooting it," Sweetin says. "We've shopped it with several right now, and we're in talks or negotiations with two of them."

After somehow escaping a plane crash that killed the other four passengers, doctors are saying that they expect both Travis Barker and DJ AM to make a full recovery from the second- and third-degree burns they suffered.

Their doctors at the Joseph Still Burn Center in Georgia told reporters that Travis Barker is badly burned on his torso as well as the lower portion of his body, while DJ AM reportedly suffered severe burns on his arm and head.

Rehabilitation from the burns will be a long and ongoing process, but Travis Barker and DJ AM remarkably suffered no additional injuries and are expected to be back to 100 percent eventually. Talk about great, unexpected news!

This photo of DJ AM and Travis Barker was taken at the event they performed at prior to the crash. Gavin DeGraw and Perry Farrell (not on board) also performed at the show.

Investigations into the crash are ongoing, but some believe the accident may have been due to a blown tire. The pilot, co-pilot, Barker's assistant and bodyguard were all killed. Barker and DJ AM somehow freed themselves from the wreckage.

Barker’s ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, flew to be with the Blink-182 drummer, while singer Mandy Moore (AM’s ex), and pal Jermaine Dupri have also visited. AM's ex-fiance, Nicole Richie, has not visited but has issued a statement sending her best.

Sure, the Dallas Cowboys are 3-0 after beating Green Bay last night. But remember last year, people, and the reason why their season suddenly headed south.

We'll give you a hint: it involves a hot body and bad singing.

She's ditched that lame-ass pink jersey in favor of the team's actual colors this year, at least. Maybe that will bring some good luck to the 'Boys for a change.

Jessica Simpson proudly wore an NFL jersey as she departed from LAX on Sunday. Boyfriend Tony Romo, whose number she sported, led Dallas to a 27-16 win.

No word on whether he scored after the game.

Federal and local authorities are on the hunt for someone peddling 12 pics of Britney Spears, Jamie Lynn Spears, daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge and baby daddy / fiance Casey Aldridge. And you won't believe the reason why.

One of the pictures shows Jamie Lynn Spears breast-feeding Maddie Briann - and Jamie Lynn's left breast is exposed. She is 17 years old. Got it?

Possibly Free Soon

The photos were taken on Casey Alridrge's digital camera. He took the camera to a local local Wal-Mart in Louisiana for copies. Law enforcement officials believe someone at the Wal-Mart made extra copies, then tried selling them.

Because Jamie Lynn Spears is a minor, selling the pics - or buying them - likely constitutes a violation of federal laws prohibiting pornography.

NOTE: Why Casey Aldridge feels the need to photograph this is another unanswered question, but whatever floats your boat. It's his business.

Life used to be much simpler for teen lovers Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge.

Peddling celebrity pictures of a minor's breasts - even if the intent is not for sexual purposes - could land both the seller and the buyer in federal prison if said pics are marketed across state lines for the purpose of being lurid.

Furthermore, anyone purchasing the lewd pictures could end up being prosecuted for the crime of receiving stolen property.

Other yoinked photos include Britney Spears holding Maddie; Jamie Lynn, Britney and Bryan Spears; Lynne and Jamie Spears around Jamie Lynn's hospital bed; Maddie by herself; Jamie Lynn Spears in a (hot!) negligee with the baby.

Authorities are trying to find the man attempting to sell the photos. In addition, Britney's lawyers are considering going after Wal-Mart for the security breach.

Audrina Patridge is moving out.

We reported this sad, but ultimately inevitable news from the alternate universe that is The Hills late last week. But now there is photo evidence of the move.

Audrina and Lauren Shop

Take a look below as Patridge prepares to exit the Los Angeles villa for the last time, as Lauren Conrad and passive-agressive Audrina nemesis Lo look on.

In an emotional and not-at-all-staged photo, Audrina Patridge packs her belongings - including a pinata, apparently - as Lauren Conrad and Lo Bosworth offer assistance.

We've asked it before but we'll ask it again:

Who should move in with Lauren Conrad?

Some updates on the tragic DJ AM / Travis Barker plane crash yesterday that left the two stars in critical condition and four other people dead ...

DJ AM, Hayley Wood
  • "Both Travis Barker and Adam Goldstein (DJ AM's real name) are in critical but stable condition," Beth Frits, spokesperson for the Joseph M. Still Burn Center, said. "Mr. Goldstein was airlifted here and Mr. Barker was brought by ground transportation. So they arrived separately."
  • Former Miss USA Shanna Moakler has rushed to be with her ex-husband Barker. Their children, ages 4 and 2, are with her parents. DJ AM's sister, Lara, and her husband, Benjamin Long, learned the news of the crash from a call from DJ AM's mother on Saturday morning.
  • DJ AM "was completely terrified and traumatized" after his jet crash early Friday, but he was conscious long enough inside the ambulance to call his mom.
  • Meanwhile, his ex-fiance Nicole Richie "wishes only the best for Adam and hopes he recovers from this. She's horribly upset about the people who died."
  • Nicole's current fiance, Joel Madden, "knows Travis and also feels terrible and hopes they recover. This is terrible news for both of them."
  • There was a rumor that Chris Baker, Barker's friend and business partner who perished in the crash, was on his way home to be with his pregnant wife and this was the reason for the group using a smaller jet. This has been refuted by AM's publicist, who says the DJ chartered the private plane all along.

Man.

We joke all the time that Katie Holmes is:

New Marriage Deal!
  1. A slave to Scientology
  2. Morphing into Tom Cruise
  3. Looks like a guy
  4. Can't dress herself

All of that may be true, but none of our jokes can hold a candle to this fake photo of Holmes and her happy hubby that recently surfaced. It's great because while this picture is bogus, that's her real hair and face, complete with shades. Kinda creepy.

Rocker Travis Barker and DJ AM were among the individuals aboard a Learjet that crashed upon takeoff from a South Carolina airport today.

This morning's accident has already killed four people and critically injured two others - presumably Barker and DJ AM - NBC News reports.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the Lear 60 – bound for Van Nuys, Calif., with six people aboard – departed shortly before midnight Friday, when local air-traffic controllers reported seeing sparks.

The plane went off the runway and crashed on a nearby road.

Travis Barker (left), an ex-drummer for the rock band Blink 182 and the star of the MTV reality show Meet the Barkers, had performed at a Friday-night event with former Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, singer Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM (right).

Barker was reportedly transported to a burn treatment center in nearby Augusta, Georgia, and was listed in critical condition as of 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

Hospital officials also confirmed that Nicole Richie's ex-fiance, DJ AM (real name: Adam Goldstein), was also admitted to the burn unit, and is in critical condition.

UPDATE #1: Neither Ferrell nor DeGraw were in the plane, their representatives told the Associated Press. We hope Barker and Goldstein recover fully and quickly.

UPDATE #2: Beth Frits, spokeswoman at Joseph Still Burn Center, tells CNN that both of the men have "extensive burns." Barker has been burned from his waste down while DJ AM's face was severely burned. Both are expected to survive.

UPDATE #3: A coroner has identified the four deceased victims in the crash: Pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills, Calif.; co-pilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, Calif.; Chris Baker, 29, of Studio City, Calif., who was Travis Barker's assistant; and Charles Still, 25, of Riverside Calif., who was Travis' bodyguard.
