Our counterparts at TMZ have learned that former Laguna Beach bad boy Jason Wahler was arrested and booked this weekend after cops say he "resisted a public officer" during a raid on underage drinkers in North Carolina.

The latest Jason Wahler arrest resulted in the Colin Farrell look-alike being sent to Pitt County (N.C.) Jail early Saturday morning, where this mug shot was taken...

He spent a few hours behind bars before posting a $1,000 bail.

Wahler, the meathead who dated Lauren Conrad on Laguna Beach and then again on her hit spin-off series, The Hills, is due to back in court in April.

J-Wahl's previous busts involved misdemeanor assault in L.A. and drug possession in N.Y.C. Man. That Brody Jenner might be a cheeseball and just out to increase his own celebrity, but LC certainly made a step up from this assclown.

The picture below might as well be titled "Portrait of a Very Happy, Slightly Insane, Scientology-practicing Family."

With a bottle and toys in hand, Tom Cruise and his beautiful, brainwashed bride, Katie Holmes, are looking prepared to take their 10-month-old daughter to her big brother's basketball game in Beverly Hills on Sunday.

Off to the Office

If they weren't such lunatics, we'd say this picture is almost cute...

No word yet on whether Connor Cruise's team won the game, or whether that little Asian cutie, Suri Cruise, was vocal in cheering him on.

That's really not important, though. We're just glad to see that TomKat is keeping busy in light of the unsettling injury to BFF David Beckham.

It was a scary night for David Beckham and for U.S. soccer fans.

Oh, wait. There are none of those. It was scary David Beckham, okay?

Becks

The soccer star had better start looking into that acting career he talks about after suffering a knee injury Sunday night during his team's match in Madrid, Spain, after crashing into advertising signs near the opposing team's goal.

"It looks serious but I do not want to say how bad until the doctors do the scan," Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello said after the match.

After the injury, Beckham, 31, tried to play on but limped off in the 63rd-minute. He was later diagnosed as damaging the lateral internal ligament of his right leg and is undergoing further tests Monday.

The injury could impact plans for the soccer star, his wife, Victoria Beckham, and their three children to move to America later this year.

Fortunately, the latter's huge breasts did not sustain any injury.

"The day started so well with a birthday party for his son," a family friend said. "But it ended with medical scans. Both David and Victoria are extremely anxious at the moment, waiting to hear what the results will be," adds the friend. "It's not a good day for the family."

In January, Beckham inked a five-year deal with the L.A. Galaxy of Major League Soccer that is worth up to $250 million with endorsements.

Last week it was announced that Victoria Beckham, 32, would star in a six-part reality show on NBC about her move to America.

Before the match on Sunday, the couple had taken sons Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 4, and Cruz, 2 to a Madrid burger joint.

"The kids had a ball. It was Brooklyn's eighth birthday party," says the friend. "And all his school friends were there too."

Hopefully TomKat was able to make it. Maybe the amazing healing powers of Scientology will help get their BFF back onto the field immediately.

"It's difficult to know what is going to happen now," says the Beckham friend. "Everyone is praying this is not major."

Same with Nicole Richie's "injury." We hope she gets back to "work" real soon.

Here's what newborn celebrity babies, such as Dannielynn Hope, have to look forward to:

Lots of time spent in bed while their parents get drunk downstairs.

Okay, that may not be entirely accurate, but Gwyneth Paltrow says she and her fellow famous moms often get together for what are probably the world's most stylish play dates.

"I have friends like Stella McCartney or Madonna, and very often our children get together to play," Paltrow tells Spanish Vogue. "Although usually we leave them in bed and stay to drink a glass of wine."

The actress and husband Chris Martin are parents to Apple, who turns 3 in May, and 11-month-old Moses. She also somehow supports Lindsay Lohan.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have Lourdes, 10, and Rocco, 6, and are in the process of adopting David Banda, 17 months; and McCartney and husband Alasdhair Willis have a son, Miller, 2, and a 3-month-old daughter, Bailey.

Paltrow took the last few years off of making movies to focus on raising her kids, and recently called being a housewife "amazing."

And she still has a sense of awe when it comes to her children. "When I look at my daughter's skin, it's the most beautiful and perfect in the world," she tells the magazine.

Older men may disagree, citing Antonella Barba as possessing the best skin on the planet - but we see where Paltrow is coming from.

We don't see, however, how underrated baby Kingston Rossdale got left off the play date list. Give Gwen Stefani a call, Gwyneth.

The Hollywood Gossip has learned that Nicole Richie has been hospitalized after falling ill on the set of her reality series, the Simple Life.

According to a source close to Richie, the 25-year-old "actress," who may be going to prison soon, was rushed to the hospital after she started to feel faint and dizzy after 20 hours of filming.

What a Cute Baby

THG NOTE: Food generally helps prevent dizziness and fainting. Just saying.

The 85-pound waif was on call until 2 a.m. last night, and was required back on the set a few hours later. After a brief nap, Richie was hurried through hair and make-up and was unable to eat due to raging anorexia a very tight shooting schedule.

Simple Life producers later rushed Nicole Richie to the hospital after she began to complain that she felt dizzy. At the hospital, Richie was given fluids and food and was promptly released.

Someone get Keira Knightley to that hospital ASAP!

"Nicole has gained weight and is doing really well," says the source. She is proud of that. The producers overreacted - she didn't need to go to the hospital."

Come on, source. No one passes out due to exhaustion or dehydration unless they run marathons or don't eat. And we know Nicole doesn't do running. It's too bad Brody Jenner couldn't fulfill his relationship goal.

Maybe Joel Madden can get this girl a hot beef injection, if you know what we are talking about. Following her brief hospital stay, Richie's rep issued this statement:

"Nicole is home resting and will return to work this evening. We are proud of the weight that Nicole is gaining and her focus on her health."

On a related note, Antonella Barba will be focusing on keeping herself clothed.

Britney Spears took a break from rehab.

Don't worry, though, fans. She didn't flee the clinic, pound a bottle of Jim Beam and rage against paparazzi. This time, the break was for more rehab.

Giving Her All

The fallen star with the shaved head wore a wig underneath a brown hat, and was reportedly heading to an AA meeting in Santa Monica last night, smiling all the way.

Britney was escorted into the support group by her assistant, and returned to Promises treatment center - where she's apparently staying after two failed attempts at getting her act together - right after the meeting.

Reports indicate the rehab center is saying Britney Spears has depression, but may not have a substance abuse problem.

We know Britney has been using cocaine and other hard drugs (a fact that Jason Alexander told us) a side effect of which is depression. AA is for alcoholics, of course, so does this mean the docs are trying to say alcohol doesn't constitute substance abuse?

Whatever. It just seems as though almost everyone - except, ironically, Kevin Federline - around Britney is enabling her problems with their co-dependent behavior.

Ignoring the problem won't make it go away. The mother of five-month-old Jayden James Federline has to admit she has a problem, face reality, and keep getting help. And Brit, help doesn't mean getting boned by Isaac Cohen. Hopefully you've learned that by now.

The Hollywood Gossip loves Rachel Bilson.

But we have never seen images of the former star of The OC quite like this before. Except for when she was dressed like this on The OC. Sorta. Wow. Adam Brody has got to be kicking himself right now (if he's not still sore, that is).

Rachel Bilson and Sarah Michelle Gellar

When we first saw these Rachel Bilson pictures, our first reaction was that of shock. After all, these are pictures of Rachel Bilson dressed up and looking like some sultry dominatrix ready to get kinky with whips, handcuffs and the like.

But she's still got that trademark smile on her face, which makes it hard to get over the fact that she's still the same, sweet, adorable actress from a teen drama we used to enjoy. We don't mean to criticize - far from it - she just seems a little out of place here. Although her character in The Last Kiss was a little more grown up...

The amazing Fergie was spotted yesterday in her early morning exercise routine in a West Hollywood park. The Fergalicious one shows that in order to keep her body vicious, she's gotta make herself work. Make-her make-her WORK! Sorry.

Fergie in Blue

Unlike the Britney Spears workout, which involves heavy breathing (in, of smoke) and heavy lifting (of the martini glass), and recreational drug use, Fergie's exercise regimen includes a series of stretches, yoga poses and lifting.

Now you can see how The Dutchess got that bod. Josh Duhamel, you lucky dog. We sure are jealous. Fergie's almost is chiseled as Matthew McConaughey!

T.H. Gossip has learned that supermodel and supermom Christie Brinkley has undergone an emergency operation on her back after injuring herself during a recent ski trip with her children.

"She needed surgery, and thank God she got it," the model's representative, Fran Curtis, tells People. "She sounds great. She's feeling a million times better."

"The surgery was successful, and she will be out of the hospital Friday."

There is no word on the exact nature of the injury, but Brinkley, 53, said it had worsened in the last few days after the incident took place.

The biggest inconvenience caused by the surgery: Brinkley will have to miss a performance by her daughter Alexa Ray Joel, 21, on Wednesday night at the Mercury Lounge in Lower Manhattan.

"As Christie noted right before the surgery, ‘I would break my back to help my daughter, but I didn't mean it literally,'" said her rep.

"I wish that my mom could be there for the show but the most important thing right now is for her to get well," said Alexa Ray, whose father is Brinkley's former husband, Billy Joel.

Billy Joel has since remarried to Katie Lee Joel, 25, but remains on great terms with Brinkley. Christie attended their wedding, and Alexa was in the wedding party.

We wish Brinkley a speedy recovery. We've always been fans of Christie, but she really stood out to us with the classy way she handled the scandal involving her husband, Peter Cook, and his teenage assistant. Even under the most straining circumstances, she managed to stay positive, with grace and dignity.

Janice Dickinson, however, we will continue to make fun of unabashedly.
