Incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie may be incarcerated longer than expected after he was busted attempting to smuggle drugs into his prison cell.

This is the second time in two months this has happened.

The hip-hop artist, real name Torrence Hatch, is currently serving a four-year prison sentence for drug and gun possession and violating parole.

Lil Boosie's legal woes have worsened after he was indicted for conspiring to get hold of codeine syrup at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola.

He has been charged with one count of criminal conspiracy to take contraband to and from a penal institution, and another of inciting a felony.

He is also due to stand trial next month after pleading not guilty to a first-degree murder charge relating to a 2009 shooting in Louisiana.

Safe to say he will be known as "incarcerated rapper" for awhile.

Sad news out of the world of automotive game shows today:

The taxi used for Canada's version of Cash Cab struck a pedestrian in Vancouver over the weekend, leaving a 61-year old man dead.

The accident took place on Friday night, when a resident of British Columbia was crossing the street and tragically met his demise at the front of the replica taxi used by that game show. It was being driven by a producer after filming for the day had been completed.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his friends and his family." said said Andrew Burnstein, president of Castlewood Productions Inc. "My heart also goes out to the driver of the vehicle, a member of our technical staff, who is shaken and devastated by this tragic accident, as is our entire team."

Police are investigating the incident and no charges have been filed yet.

Reality TV losers Michaele and Tareq Salahi are being sued by a woman who claims they stiffed her on a tour of Virginia wine country, reports say.

The case of Emily McCallum vs. Michaele Salahi and Tareq Salahi is on the docket for 8:30 a.m. today in Loudoun County (Va.) General District Court.

McCallum is one of several who've complained that the Salahis have been operating a wine tourism company and not delivering on their obligations.

Earlier this year McCallum earned her master's degree and wanted to celebrate with family and friends by taking a scenic wine tour in Virginia.

"She scheduled it with a company owned by the Salahis and paid in full," a source said. "They never showed up and at the last minute, Emily had to get another company. She's been unable to get her money back from them."

"I'm really glad she's taking them to court."

It can't hurt. Anything that might help keep these notorious fame whores, posers, liars and party crashers in check can only be a good thing.

Rachel Uchitel has repaid much of the money Tiger Woods paid her to keep quiet in the aftermath of their affair, and may sue Gloria Allred as a result.

Huh? Relax. It's even more confusing than you think.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

In early 2010, Allred negotiated a $10 million settlement for Rachel, who had planned to hold a news conference and detail her relationship with Tiger.

The mammoth payoff included a confidentiality agreement, which prohibited Rachel Uchitel from talking about Tiger. Ever. Here's where it gets dicey:

The confidentiality clause works the way you think it does. If Rachel spoke about Tiger, she'd have to pay back the money, as well as potential damages.

Several months ago, Tiger's lawyer, Jay Lavely, contacted Gloria regarding Rachel's appearance on Celebrity Rehab, saying they planned to sue over it.

While she never talked specifically about Tiger on the VH1 show, Uchitel's reality show treatment "addiction to love" royally pissed off Woods' camp.

Rachel felt strongly she had not violated the agreement, but Gloria convinced her she would lose if Tiger's attorney pursued the case against her.

Paris Hilton's younger brother Barron just got shellacked in court, with a judge ordering him to pay nearly $5 million for hitting a guy with his car.

Barron Hilton was sued by Fernando Tellez, who was working at a gas station on Pacific Coast Highway when Barron, then 18, rolled up in 2008.

Hilton was drunk. And allegedly hit Tellez with his Mercedes.

Tellez's attorney claims he suffered "permanent disability" and has been forced to "undergo multiple surgeries and medical procedures" since.

Barron Hilton was arrested on suspicion of DUI at 8:30 a.m. (!!) that day after blowing a .14. Paris' bro later pleaded no contest to the charge.

Now, an L.A. County Superior Court jury has ordered Hilton to fork over $4.9 million in damages, which he disputes, saying he never hit Tellez.

"We disagree with the jury. Barron did not strike the attendant," says a Hilton source. "Barron knows he did wrong. It happened 3 years ago."

"He's been incredibly responsible ever since."

Hollywood publicist Ronnie Chasen, who was killed in December, was murdered by a lone gunman, acting alone, during an attempted robbery.

That was the assessment of police in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy, and the determination of officials who closed the case this week.

After sifting through over 150,000 pieces of evidence, police this week officially shut down their investigation, reports the Beverly Hills Courier.

Chasen

Chasen, 64, was shot multiple times while driving her Mercedes early November 16 after leaving an afterparty for the premiere of Burlesque.

The gunman, Harold Martin Smith, later killed himself December 1 as officers were attempting to take him in for questioning in the case.

Afterwards, unsubstantiated rumors emerged that she'd been the target of a professional hit, but it was determined to be a failed robbery.

The gun used to commit Chasen's murder – she was shot four times – had been stolen from a police officer during a previous burglary.

Brooks added that recent times have been "tough" and that she plans to correct "distortions" about her record as a journalist.

We wish her good luck in explaining why her newspaper hacking into the voicemails of over 4,000 people.

Pssst, L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services. Over here...

Brooke Mueller was involved in an argument with United Airlines staff members on Tuesday, the result of which was Charlie Sheen's troubled ex departing a plane under controversial circumstances. Was she kicked off? Did choose to leave because a flight attendant was being unfair?

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Does it even matter at this point?

According to TMZ, Mueller tried to use the bathroom immediately prior to take-off. But a stewardess said she had to remain seated. A fight ensued. Brooke claims she demanded off the plane, but a witness says:

Mueller was "belligerent and cussing out the flight attendant" and was removed from the aircraft.

Between this incident, her alleged desire to reconcile with Charlie Sheen and her anxious pot use, what else do authorities need to investigate the well-being of her children?
