The Spears family policy towards paparazzi: If you can't avoid 'em, date 'em (right, Adnan?), and if you can't date 'em... hate 'em arrested!

Edwin Merino of Los Angeles, Calif., was arrested on Tuesday on charges of stalking pregnant teenage mother-to-be Jamie Lynn Spears.

Authorities in Liberty, La., say Edwin Merino wouldn't leave 17-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge (her fiance and baby-daddy) alone.

Who on earth would stalk this adorable, domestic couple?

The celebrity picture-taker was in the middle of a four-day visit to the small town in Mississippi where the two just bought a house.

Merino denies the charge, saying that he was some 200 feet away from the couple, using a long lens, at the time he was arrested.

"I think since I was the only [celebrity photographer] there, it was just easier for them to single me out," he told authorities.

According to sources, Merino spent some time in jail before posting $1,143 in blood money bail and being released. Good riddance.

Her next album may not be hitting stores any time soon, but Britney Spears is dipping her toes back into the music scene.

Or at least filming a cameo for the new Pussycat Dolls video.

Mother and Toddler

"It's a small part," says a source about the pop star's visit to the L.A. set of the group's video shoot for their new single, "When I Grow Up."

Possibly saving her trademark moves for her own album (or because she's lost them for good) Spears is not expected to dance or perform in the video.

Here's a clip of the video being filmed this week:

The Pussycat Dolls create yet another groundbreaking music video.

As for the recovering Britney Spears, she's possibly dating producer Jason Trawick but definitely treading lightly as she tries to regain a career.

While her recent TV meetings have been strictly exploratory, How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris said the cast of that show would be happy to have her back for a third time saying, "The door is open for her."

Sen. Barack Obama formally clinched the Democratic nomination for president this week, following a long and tumultuous primary season.

To celebrate (or just to generate publicity), his wife, Michelle Obama, will co-host ABC's The View June 18, the network said Wednesday.

President and Mrs. Obama

The lovely Michelle Obama and the annoying Barbara Walters will be side by side when the potential First Lady co-hosts the popular daytime talk show.

In other View news today, Rosie O'Donnell said that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is attractive. For once in her life, that gargoyle hit the nail on the head.

Remember the Eva Longoria poster an opposing fan held up to distract Tony Parker in a recent San Antonio Spurs playoff game?

Or the Jessica Simpson masks fans utilized to rattle Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo during a key NFL contest last winter?

Well, get ready for a new iteration of this funny phenomenon.

With the NBA Finals starting tonight in Beantown, Boston Celtics fans are looking for any possible edge against the hated, visiting Los Angeles Lakers.

So they're making cutouts of Vanessa Curry - alleged mistress of Kobe Bryant.

Kobe Bryant has denied that the affair with Vanessa Curry, an ex-Laker Girl, took place. He quickly fired off a legal letter to the website that spread the rumor.

The site in question, TheDirty.com, replied that given Kobe Bryant's past indiscretions, a court isn't exactly likely to find the story libelous. It's also going to call a lot more attention to the supposed affair than it's already getting.

In any case, tune in tonight to see Boston fans holding up Vanessa Curry pics to try to get in Kobe's head. Will their tactic work?

Eh. Given that this guy played half a season while standing trial for raping a girl, we're guessing this is pretty small-time for Bryant.

Taking a break from her Hills filming duties, Audrina Patridge spent last night living it up on Hollywood Boulevard - with Tal Cooperman.

Who is Tal Cooperman? He works with Benji and Joel Madden on their DCMA clothing line, which The Hills star has been known to frequent.

A Patridge Pic

After dinner, the pair hit up Avalon nightclub. Tal trailed behind her a bit, trying to avoid attention from celebrity photo agencies.

This was not the first time Audrina Patridge and Tal Cooperman have been spotted together. The photo above is actually from back in March!

We're not sure if we believe they're really dating, because Justin-Bobby has also been spotted with Audrina Patridge very recently. What's going on with that guy?

We do guess that Tal Cooperman probably showers more and mumbles less than J-Bobby. We base that on gut instinct, but come on, the odds are pretty good.

The Hills' Heidi Montag recently announced that she's engaged and ready to walk down the aisle with boyfriend Spencer Pratt. Yup, again.

Friend and co-star Audrina Patridge says she may want to hold off.

Book Signing Nastiness

"I think she's still young, and I just feel like she shouldn't get married right away," Patridge, 23, told Us Weekly Tuesday.

"They should be together and see if they can actually live together for a year without fighting. Once you are married, you're married."

Audrina Patridge believes Heidi Montag may be jumping the gun as she plans a fake wedding to Spencer Pratt for the second time in as many years.

Audrina said she, Heidi, Lauren Conrad and the rest of the cast have been busy already this summer "filming the fourth season of the show."

We reported earlier this week that they bought a house.

Now Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge are in full-on nesting mode.

Spears Double Wedding!

The parents-to-be, who recently purchased their first home together in Liberty, Miss., are preparing for the imminent birth of their child.

"They're very happy," says a source. "They're a fun little couple."

To get settled, Jamie Lynn Spears, 17, and Casey Aldridge, 19, recently had furniture - including an elaborately carved four-poster king-size canopy bed, a leather recliner, and a leather sofa - delivered to the house.

As Jamie Lynn's baby bump grows and grows, her mom, Lynne Spears, is helping her decorate the nursery, with the color scheme of pink, brown, and "silver-green," according to an insider.

For Bridget Moynahan, bringing a newborn son home alone was "frightening" â€" and far from a dream - she revealed in a recent interview.

"I'm not sure anyone - and I could be wrong in this - grows up thinking, I want to be a single mom," Moynahan said.

Bridget Moynahan Nude

Shortly after the end of her three-year relationship with NFL quarterback Tom Brady - who went on to see Gisele Bundchen naked almost immediately - Moynahan announced her pregnancy with Brady's child.

Bridget Moynahan is enjoying life as a single mom ... albeit after being heartbroken at the prospect of going it alone, sans Tom Brady.

"When you're suddenly pregnant and no one is standing by your side, even if you're in your 30s, it's a hard conversation. I'm a traditional girl, and I believe in marriage. I just thought that's the way I'd be doing this," she says. "For a time, it was hard to accept that this was the way I was going to have a family."

She gave birth to John Edward Thomas Moynahan last August.
