Shaun White might dominate in the air of winter, but the snow boarder extraordinaire got himself in some trouble early Sunday morning on the grounds of a Nashville hotel.

Here's what allegedly went down:

Shaun White Mug Shot

The Nashville Metro Police Department says cops were called to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel around 2 a.m. because a clearly drunk White evacuated the facility by pulling the fire alarm. He also reportedly smashed a phone.

When another guest tried to stop The X Games champion from fleeing the scene via taxi, White kicked that individual and sprinted away on foot. Or tried to, at least.

The victim jumped to his feet and tackled White, who slammed his head against a fence.

White - who authorities confirm reeked of alcohol - was taken to a nearby hospital and booked for vandalism and public intoxication. Fortunately for him, the citizen declined to press assault charges.

Rupert Everett has stirred up quite a bit of controversy with comments made to The Sunday Times Magazine in Great Britain.

The actor, who came out of the closet at age 18, told the publication that his mother has met his boyfriend and gets along with him very well - but would prefer if her child came home instead with a wife and kids.

“She thinks children need a father and a mother and I agree with her,” Everett said. “I can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads. Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That’s just my opinion."

Expecting backlash, Everett added:

"I'm not speaking on behalf of the gay community. In fact, I don't feel like I'm part of any 'community.' The only community I belong to is humanity and we've got too many children on the planet, so it's good not to have more."

Ben Summerskill, chief executive of Stonewall (a British gay rights group) reacted swiftly to Everett's comments, releasing a statement that reads:

"Rupert should get out a little bit more to see the facts for himself. There is absolutely no evidence that the kids of gay parents suffer in the way they are being brought up or in how they develop."

What do you think of Rupert Everett's anti-gay parenting stance? It is...

The Italian magazine Chi has vowed to publish more of the infamous nude and topless Kate Middleton photos that the British royal family is suing over.

France’s Closer magazine ran a whole spread devoted to Kate Middleton topless last week, prompting a stinging rebuke and a lawsuit from the Duchess.

Chi claims it has 200 images of the future queen sunbathing nude or at least topless, and will proceed with plans to print a 26-page, 50-photo article.

The Chi cover was unveiled Saturday in Italian newspapers and TV under the headline 'Court Scandal: The Queen is Nude!' Check that out below ...

Kate Middleton Topless Cover

Chi is published by the same media group as Closer.

Alfonso Signorini, the defiant editor of Chi, has Tweeted that “not even a direct call from the Queen” would stop him from publishing the trove of nude pictures:

“I am convinced by this scoop that Chi will be publishing on Monday because that is what we are talking about. These pictures are not offensive or in poor taste."

"They are not morbid and they do not damage the dignity of anyone. Instead the [Prince Harry naked pictures] published in Britain were exactly that."

"If I didn’t recognize the journalistic value of what I had then if I did not publish them I would be better off in a market selling artichokes."

Within hours of Kate Middleton topless pictures burning up the Internet and the pages of French tabloid Closer, the Royal Family is reportedly planning action against the magazine behind these images.

A rep for St. James's Palace just released a statement saying that "legal proceedings for breach of privacy have been commenced today in France" by Kate and William. No further details were included.

Kate Middleton Smirks

The move does not come as a shock, considering the family's swift and forceful reaction to the photos in question.

"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excess of the paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so," said a spokesman for Clarence House, the Prince of Wales' office, early this morning.

But that's not how Laurence Pieau of Closer sees it. This editor doesn't see why there's any fuss being made over the shots at all.

"These photos are not in the least shocking," he told the Agence France-Presse. "They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches."

If Pieau actually believed this, of course, it would raise the question: Why run the supposedly mundane pictures in the first place?

Fortunately, this scandalous hullabaloo does have a silver lining for the Royals: There's no talk anymore about Kate Middleton pregnant rumors, is there?

Jael Strauss finished fifth on Cycle 8 of America's Next Top Model, remaining in the competition despite a close friend dying of a drug overdose during filming.

Now, five years later, the former beauty has fallen prey to the world of illicit substances herself.

Strauss was featured on an episode of Dr. Phil yesterday, as the talk show attempted to stage an intervention for the troubled addict. Watch a dramatic promo for the appearance below and then check out what former ANTM champion Caridee English has to say about Strauss and Tyra Banks...

Speaking to Gawker, English puts some of the blame for Strauss' fall on Banks and other show producers.

"They should have evaluated her a lot more before letting her on the show," Caridee says. "All they saw was a personality good for television."

And after leaving the show? After helping to drive ratings to it and, of course, line Tyra's pockets with cash? English says contestants receive no guidance of any kind from Banks.

"Tyra won't do anything [for Jael]. She provided a wonderful platform for girls to have a chance at their dream, but after there is no "Tyra Mail." I had to guide myself, and even though I won a model competition I still had no idea what the modeling BUSINESS was like. I had no idea what the industry was really like. I was famous, but no one wanted to take my picture."

Look for the craziness to be ratcheted up even more next week on Dr. Phil when Dina Lohan stops by for an interview.

The photographic evidence. That's what we labeled pictures of Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders in Us Weekly, as they clearly showed the actress and director locked in a passionate embrace.

Or did they?!?

A new video has gone viral that purports to debunk this myth. It alleges its very own "proof" that the images were actually doctored, edited to appear as if Sanders and Stewart were making out in Los Angeles when, in this supposed reality, neither star was even at the location in question.

Are you buying the tricks this video claims were used to fool all of America?

Stewart, of course, admitted to the affair within 24 hours of this report hitting the Internet. So why would she possibly play a role in the conspiracy?

Blackmail! What if Sanders and Liberty Ross were behind the scandal this entire time in order to boost their professional profiles? The latter did suddenly walk the runway at New York Fashion Week a couple days ago.

What do you think? Were the Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders photos part of an elaborate hoax?

Prince William and Kate Middleton are "hugely saddened" over the "grotesque, unjustifiable invasion of privacy" by a magazine publishing topless photos of Kate.

French publication Closer printed the Kate Middleton pictures, taken during their holiday at the French chateau of the Queen's nephew, Lord Linley.

The photos are blurry and taken with a long lens, but there are four pages of photos of the couple, with Kate Middleton topless in several of them.

Kate Middleton Smiles

A spokesman for Clarence House, the Prince of Wales' office, confirmed the existence of the photos and the fact that the couple is reeling because of them:

"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excess of the paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to the Duke and Duchess for being so."

"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them."

"Officials acting on behalf of their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to the Duke and Duchess."

There's now stopping the publication now, in any case. See the grainy, censored but nevertheless NSFW Kate Middleton photos after the jump:

Jamie Kuntz says a kiss from his much-older boyfriend at his first game led the freshman linebacker to be released from his college football team.

North Dakota State College of Sciences in Wahpeton acknowledges Kuntz was disciplined by the team, but says it wasn't because he is homosexual.

Football coach Chuck Parsons denies kicking the gay football player off the team because he's gay, but says it was for lying to him about the kiss.

In any case, Kuntz, 18, and on a partial football scholarship, left the college in southeast North Dakota this month after his dismissal from the team.

Gay Football Player

"Football didn't work out, so there was no reason to stay," said Kuntz.

Kuntz said that he and his 65-year-old boyfriend were in the press box at the game against Snow College in Pueblo, Colo., over Labor Day weekend.

Sidelined by a minor concussion, he was videotaping the game for the team. His Wildcats were down by 40+ points when "the kiss just happened."

The team would eventually lose 63-17.

"People around here aren't exposed to it," Kuntz said of the fact that he is a gay man. "People expect gays to be flamboyant, not football players."

A teammate apparently saw the kiss and told coaches, Kuntz said, and Parsons confronted him; Kuntz told him the man was his grandfather.

You may not believe this, but Michael Madsen ran afoul of the law last night.

The troubled actor, who was booked in March for allegedly getting into an altercation with his son, was arrested this time on on suspicion of drunken driving after motorists saw his vehicle swerving on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and called 911.

In a field sobriety test, the actor came back with a blood alcohol level of .21, more than twice the legal limit of .08, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore.

In an unusual twist, Madsen complained of an undisclosed medical problem during his booking and spent the night at the hospital after deputies cited him for drunk driving and released him.

On the professional front, the star plays a role on the Hawaii Five-0 Season 3 premiere. It airs September 24.
