Sigh. The mom of young Isabella Barrett of Toddlers & Tiaras fame is suing the MEDIA for over-sexualizing her daughter ... by reporting on Isabella's "Sexy And I Know It" cover.

Susanna Barrett claims media outlets, in reporting that event, portrayed her five-year-old daughter in an "overly sexualized manner." Right. All the media's fault.

In court papers, Susanna claims Isabella "did not act or portray herself sexually, erotically or provocatively" and that coverage of her performance was unfair.'

"She was not 'gyrating' at a 'nightclub' or singing 'about her sex appeal," the elder Barrett claims incredulously. "On the contrary, it is the defendants who, through their articles ... thrust these false and vulgar characteristics on to Isabella."

Yes, this is a real story. The delusional mother seems to see nothing wrong with having her daughter sing a sexually-themed LMFAO song.

The media talking about it though? Shame.

Thanks to TMZ, The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail and other celebrity news sources, “Isabella is now perceived sexually, erotically and pornographically."

Suing for $30 million, Barrett adds, "[The articles] place Isabella in physical danger, attracting the attention of others who would seek to sexualize a child.”

Well, on those grounds, can someone sue her for $30 million too then?

Former So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Alex Da Silva has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a former dance student, reports say.

Da Silva was arrested back in 2009 for a whole host of felonies.

The 43-year-old was charged with sexually assaulting four women, all former dance students of his between the ages of 20 and 26 at the time. Sick.

Da Silva was convicted of one count of rape and one count of assault with intent to rape. The jury deadlocked on the other charges, which were dismissed.

Da Silva appeared on Seasons 1-4 of SYTYCD (above, mentoring now-DWTS pro Chelsie Hightower). He was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Fellow one-time SYTYCD mainstay Shane Sparks was also charged with a sex offense recently, pleading guilty to unlawful sex with a minor.

A new twist has emerged in the accusation of rape against Good Day New York anchor Greg Kelly:

According to The New York Post, the woman who went to the police on Tuesday and reported an October incident where Kelly sexually assaulted her also told the cops that the alleged rape resulted in a pregnancy. She said she later aborted the fetus.

Due to the internal conflict within the NYPD - Kelly is the son of Commissioner Raymond Kelly - the Manhattan District Attorney has been placed in charge of this investigation, with Kelly's lawyer expressing confidence that office will "prove Mr. Kelly’s innocence.”

The accuser is reported to be in her late 20s or early 30s and claims Kelly and her went back to the law office in which she works (though not as an attorney) on October 8, following drinks at South Street Seaport. That is where the alleged assault took place.

Sources say the two communicated after the incident took place, with some speculating it was due to the pregnancy.

A friend of the woman tells ABC News that the alleged victim has been “an emotional cripple” since the night in question.

Sorry, Armie Hammer. Your arrest for marijuana possession didn't even make THG's Top 10 favorite marijuana scandals ... though it did inspire us to compile the list!

Note that there are plenty of pot smokers out there who don't appear here simply because they haven't been busted for their antics. We snub them, but they win!

Anyway, take a look at some recent stars involved in weed-related police matters below and vote for which celebrity stoner is your favorite ...

  • Chace Crawford Mug Shot
  • Matthew McConaughey mug shot

10. Chace Crawford / Matthew McConaughey (tie). The Texans tie for the 10 spot based on the classic mug shots taken after their respective arrests.

9. Snoop Dogg. Snoop's arrest this month was about as shocking as ... the #7 man on this list, who was also cited for possession in the same TOWN!

8. Jermaine Hopkins / Sam Hurd (tie). The Lean On Me star and Chicago Bears player may not be household names ... but were big time DEALERS.

7. Willie Nelson. Seriously, just leave Willie alone cops.

  • Soulja Boy Mug Shot
  • New Brooke Mueller Mug Shot

6. Soulja Boy. Recently pulled over with his entourage carrying a bunch of weed, cash and a gun. All in one briefcase. Sometimes you gotta travel light.

5. Michael Phelps. Don't hit the bong after winning a gold medal, kids.

4. Brooke Mueller. Charlie's ex claims her infamous crack pipe incident merely involved weed. Even if you give her the benefit of the doubt, what a mess!

3. Jenelle Evans. Girl can't go 24 hours without smoking up! Or getting arrested. At least some of her probation woes stem from positive drug tests.

2. Miley Cyrus. Our #2 scandal didn't even involve weed, necessarily ... but Miles totally smokes it, and who else could compete with this bong video!

1. DMX. The all-time king of celebrity mug shots is only slightly less known for his affinity for the sticky-sticky. Sometimes those things are related!

Who's your favorite celebrity stoner?

Greg Kelly, a co-host on Fox News' Good Morning New York and the son of that city's police Commissioner, has been accused of rape.

The reporter was not in his usual seat on that program this morning because a woman told cops she met Kelly for a drink on October 8 at the South Street Seaport. He then allegedly went back to the law office at which she worked and sexually assaulted the female.

A source tells The New York Daily News that the accuser did not report the crime until Tuesday night, while other insiders claim the incident resurfaced after the woman's boyfriend learned about what happened and actually approached Commissioner Raymond Kelly in person at an event.

Good Day New York reported the story today, but did not reveal any information about Kelly's long or even short-term status on the show.

Asked about her co-worker, Rosanna Scotto simply told the newspaper: "I love Greg. That's all I can say."

The New York County District Attorney's office is conducting the investigation and, through his attorney, Kelly "strenuously denies any wrongdoing of any kind."

It's been nearly four months since Amanda Knox returned to the U.S. after spending four years in an Italian jail. Now she may be going back to the country.

Why return to a place where she was jailed for so long?

Not to see the sights, although her lawyer says she still loves the country and would even consider returning as a tourist one day. But in the more immediate future, Amanda may testify on behalf of her parents, who face criminal charges of slander.

Amanda Knox Pic

Curt Knox and Edda Mellas, who are divorced, are charged with slandering the Perugia police based on statements they made to London's Sunday Times.

In the interview, they repeated Amanda Knox's claims that she had been physically abused and verbally threatened by police during an interrogation.

How living at home in Washington State, Amanda Knox, 24, is expected to be called as a defense witness at their trial, which is set to begin on March 30.

Knox's murder conviction was overturned last October, but she also faces slander charges for statements regarding police conduct she made during her trial.

Lindsay Lohan is staying out of trouble these days. Yet it still seems to find her.

Already sued by a crazy dude this week, now Lohan is facing claims by a woman who says she clipped her while driving through her old West Hollywood neighborhood.

Roughly 17 months ago, for the record.

Lindsay the Goddess

Plaintiff Nubia Del Carmen Plaza charges that Lindsay Lohan was driving a rented Maserati GranTurismo when she ran into her while Plaza was crossing the street.

She's demanding unspecified damages to cover "serious personal injuries, pain, suffering and anguish"; past and future medical expenses; and loss of wages and future earning potential due to her inability to perform her usual occupation.

Black & White Car Rental is also named as a defendant.

"To the best of my knowledge, neither Lindsay nor her attorneys have been served with a lawsuit," her rep Steven Honig, the busiest guy in L.A., tells E! News.

"I really can't comment on something that hasn't been served through proper channels. People like to do this - give lawsuits to the media before serving Lindsay."

Authorities say actor Armie Hammer was arrested at a border patrol checkpoint in West Texas after a drug sniffing dog discovered marijuana in his car. The same checkpoint, crazily enough, where Willie Nelson AND Snoop Dogg got popped.

The 25-year-old J. Edgar star spent about a day in jail before paying a $1,000 bond.

Armie Hammer Head Shot

Arrest records show he had 0.02 ounces of marijuana, three medicinal marijuana cookies and one brownie when arrested in Sierra Blanca, near the Mexican border.

El Paso's district attorney declined to prosecute because a felony requires more than four ounces of actual marijuana. The county attorney could pursue lesser charges.

Hammer's lawyer Kent Schaffer says no charges have been presented. Likely Armie will merely be fined and sent on his merry, unreasonably handsome way.

Liam Hemsworth turned 22 years old last week and those close to the actor celebrated with a party Saturday evening at Club Icon in Los Angeles.

It was your basic festive occasion, with one notable exception that is now making headlines for Miley Cyrus: the singer, reported by onlookers to have been drinking heavily all night, got up close and VERY personal with her boyfriend's birthday cake.

Which was shaped like a penis.

Miley Cyrus on a Red Carpet

TMZ has posted photos of Miley squatting, sticking out her tongue and posing provocatively at the base of the phallic creation.

At this point, we almost admire Cyrus for legitimately not caring what others say about her. Consider just a few of her actions when cameras were around:

What do you make of Miley's latest antics? Just a young gal having fun? Or another example of the role model not understanding her influence on fans?

Following Cynthia Nixon's declaration that homosexuality - at least in her case - is a choice, the reaction within the gay community has been strong, swift and mixed.

The harshest rebuke of the Sex and the City star has likely come from celebrity chef Cat Cora, who appeared yesterday on The Talk and said:

"I'm gay, and I was born this way," adding of Nixon's view and how it could impact others: "I really feel like it was dangerous and irresponsible of Cynthia, especially in this environment today when so many young people are taking their lives."

Cynthia Nixon, No Hair

Continued Cora, making a plea to the actress who is currently starring on Broadway:

"I know growing up as a young gay person how much you hate yourself, how much you already think you're different. And for someone to say, ‘It's a choice, you can be this way or that way,' I think it's dangerous and I ask Cynthia to please, reach out to the community and say - to all the people who do hate themselves right now, all the young kids who are impressionable - to say, ‘You're OK, take it one day at a time, it gets better.'"

Nixon has been in relationships with both men and women, but dismisses the classification of "bisexual."
