Madonna Badger, a famous New York City advertising executive, lost her three children and her parents when her waterfront mansion went up in flames yesterday.

Badger, who created the iconic Mark Wahlberg underwear ads for Calvin Klein, among other notable campaigns, and her friend Michael Borcina escaped the blaze.

Badger bought the Stamford, Conn., waterfront estate last year for $1.7 million. Borcina's construction company was renovating the home. Now it looks like this:

Stamford Police Sgt. Paul Guzda said Badger's three daughters, seven-year-old twins and a 10-year-old, all died in the fire. Badger's visiting parents also died.

Police officers said they notified Badger's estranged husband, Matthew Badger, of the tragedy and drove him to the scene from his apartment in Manhattan.

The two split three years ago and are in the process of getting divorced.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was just reamed out in an Indiana courtroom, accused of violating her probation and pulling a no-show for two urine tests.

Law enforcement sources say Portwood got popped on December 16 for possession of a controlled substance. It's unclear what exactly the substance was.

She also failed to provide mandatory urine drug screening results on December 16 and December 19. Not a smart move when you're on probation already.

Awful Amber

That's not even all. Amber Portwood is on the hook for various other alleged probation violations, including failure to complete anger management class.

A judge recently ordered her to set up a college fund for her young daughter, Leah. You can probably guess whether or not that's happened.

Spoiler: It has not.

As such, Amber was ordered to remain in custody until her hearing in late January. At that point, the Teen Mom's longer-term fate will be determined.

SIDE NOTE: This is her second straight Christmas in jail. Wow.

Miley Cyrus was involved in yet another videotaped scandal this week, but this time it's hard not to side with the superstar. Here's what went down:

While on vacation in Costa Rica with boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, Miley stopped to pose with a few fans. But she then had to go and turned to walk away... only for one onlooker to refer to her as an "asshole." Cyrus whipped around and replied (20-second mark, below):

"What the f-ck? Are you for real? We're on vacation!"

Miley later took to Twitter and explain ed her reaction:

"Just to clear something up I would NEVER swear to a fan. When someone yells something SO rude making ME look like an 'a**hole' in front of fans who I am more than happy 2 take a picture w/ i cant tolerate that kind of rudeness. Every1 who was there apologized 4 the womans brusque behavior. She obviously wasnt a fan. Hope every1 has a Merry Christmas! LOVE 2 ALL!"

In far more positive video news, Cyrus has joined other celebrities in this campaign to promote charitable help in Haiti.

Star Magazine has pulled off the impossible: coverage of the Kardashians than actually turns off this attention-crazed family.

The latest issue of the tabloid quotes Charles Kernaghan - the head of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights - as saying the Kris Jenner-led clan employs youths in China to manufacture Kardashian merchandize in unsanitary warehouses.

An investigation has been launched into these "slave labor" like conditions - that reportedly include long work hours, meager wages and uncomfortable temperatures - but there's a  problem:

Kardashians Kover Story

Kernaghan says he was misquoted and tells TMZ there's no proof that the Kardashians are involved in any kind of sweatshop scandal. He's never even been to any of the factories in question.

In light of this admission, along with the magazine cover above, sources say the family is set to move forward with a libel lawsuit against Star. Lawyers believe the tabloid should have to pay for damage caused to the Kardashian brand's reputation and, trust us, we hate to agree with anything this family says or does.

But they may have a point here.

Adam Lambert has reportedly been arrested in Finland.

Details are still coming in, but this much we know, according to a Perez Hilton source:

The ex-American Idol finalist got into a "huge fight" with boyfriend Sauli Koskinen outside of a bar in Helsinki called "Don't Tell Momma." Both were booked by local police and, as of early this morning, are sitting in separate jails in the area.

Finnish journalists claim that witnesses attempted to break up the brawl, only for Lambert to also attack the peace-makers. No one was seriously injured in the melee.

We'll have more on this arrest as news breaks. Lambert, meanwhile, is in the process of promoting the first single off his second album.

UPDATE: The duo has been released and Koskinen has blogged: "Publicity is not easy, but also celebrities are just human. Love is not easy either, but it lasts forever!"

Monta Ellis has allegedly pulled a Brett Favre. No, he hasn't sullied his legacy by announcing multiple false retirements and then taking subtle shots at his superstar replacement.

Instead, the Golden State Warriors shooting guard and one of the most dynamic players in the NBA has been sued by a former team employee, Erika Ross Smith, for supposedly sending her numerous unwanted text messages, culminating in a photo of his genitals.

Talk about being a baller! (Sorry.)

Smith worked last year as in the team's community relations department, and claims in her lawsuit that Ellis texted her from November through January with lines such as "I want to be with you" and "Hey Sexy." He would also ask what she was wearing.

"On a micro level, my client has endured unwanted harassment, has suffered and continues to suffer emotional distress and trauma," Burt Boltuch, Smith's lawyer, said at a news conference this week. "On a macro level, this type of conduct, especially in the sports world, must stop... she was embarrassed. She was intimidated. She felt scared and helpless."

The Kardashians stand accused of using "slave labor" and turning a blind eye to human rights atrocities to produce their multimillion dollar fashion lines.

A human rights group is investigating claims that workers in China - as young as 16 - work in squalor to manufacture merchandise for the famous family.

The labels in question: K-Dash by Kardashian (which Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are all involved with), the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle, according to Star.

The institute for Global Labour and Human Rights has in fact launched an investigation, amidst claims the Kardashians' products are inhumanely produced.

With factories reeking of stench from sewage and temperatures north of 100 degrees, an official from the group says conditions in the area are "horrific."

There are also claims the employees work up to 84 hours a week, earning $1 an hour ... while the Kardashians rake in approximately $65 million a year.

However, a leader of the human rights group quoted in the story implying the Kardashians use "slave labor" says the story is misleading in many ways.

Charles Kernaghan, Executive Director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, says he told Star, "It was a wise idea to wait on the article."

For reasons unknown, the Dutch magazine Jackie recently referred to pop star Rihanna in an article as "the ultimate n---a bitch." The singer was not happy.

"Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you..." Rihanna tweeted yesterday at the fashion publication's editor, Eva Hoeke.

"F--K YOU!!!" she exclaimed ... dashes not included.

Prior to that concise sentiment, Rihanna had posted this lengthy missive: "@evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate!!"

"You ran out of legit, civilized information to print! There are 1000's of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race!"

"That's your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made absolutely no sense... 'N---A BITCH'?!"

The not-at-all amusing attempt at slang and "hey, girlfriend!" appreciation was not intended to be racist or degrading, according to the magazine.
