Considering how Bravo's Real Housewives like to throw around their money - seriously, read all about the party one of them threw for a nine-year old this week! - you'd think they could afford to hire a chauffeur.

Instead Sonja Morgan got pulled over for drunk driving early this morning.

The newest Real Housewives of New York City cast member failed to halt at a stop sign in Southampton Village around 2 a.m. and then proceeded to fail a field sobriety test. Morgan refused a Breathalyzer and was taken to local police headquarters, arrested for DWI.

Sources told The New York Post she had been on the island throughout Memorial Day weekend.

Morgan will appear in court to face the charge at a later date. Feel free to draw a mustache on her mug shot.

According to multiple sources, there's no longer any question over whether or not Charlie Sheen will spend time in jail for his Christmas Day assault against wife Brooke Mueller.

The troubled actor is most definitely headed to the slammer. Sheen is prepared to agree to a plea bargain that will include approximately 30 days behind bars.

"Charlie intends to go to court on June 7 [to] plead to a misdemeanor and immediately begin serving his 30 days in jail," said an insider. "With good behavior, he could end up doing 15 or so days."

Let's all hope Charlie Sheen gets up close and personal with fellow inmates in a very different way this month.

Incredibly, Sheen had the option of avoiding prison and accepting probation - but he actually deemed probation too risky, which is basically a case of the star admitting that he can't remain out of trouble.

The actor will go to Aspen next Monday, enter a no-contest plea to third degree assault and have his felony menacing charge dropped.

In the end, for allegedly holding a knife to the throat of Mueller, Sheen will receive a pay raise from CBS and spend about two weeks in jail.

Ain't justice grand for celebrities?

Sarah Ferguson, a.k.a. Fergie, a.k.a. Britain's Duchess of York, says she was drinking and "not in my right place" when she was caught in a sting operation.

The set-up? Ferg was caught on video offering access to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for $724,000. She told Oprah Winfrey she was "in the gutter."

"I'm aware of the fact that I've been drinking, you know. I was not in my right place," Sarah Ferguson said in an interview set to air on Oprah on Tuesday.

Ferguson said she had seen the video while traveling through airports recently but had not sat down to watch closely: "I haven't faced the devil in the face."

According to transcripts of the show, the Duchess says "I was in the gutter at that moment." We're inclined to believe it, given the accusations in this case.

TROUBLED DUCHESS: Sarah Ferguson has some explaining to do.

Tape of the sting was posted by London's News of the World, which set up the meeting. Ferguson asks for $40,000 cash and 500,000 pounds ($718,500).

In exchange for that wire transfer, she agrees to introduce the paper's undercover reporter to the prince - reportedly under the guise of a business meeting.

"I can open any door you want," Ferguson reportedly said in the video. 

The newspaper's big sting operation has caused a major embarrassment for the 50-year-old Sarah Ferguson, who has a pair of daughters with Prince Andrew.

Andrew is the second son of Queen Elizabeth and fourth in line to the throne. The prince is also known as the Duke of York. The couple divorced in 1996.

He acts as Britain's special representative for international trade and investment, so surely this can't be going over well across the pond. More to come.

It won't be long until former TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman is arrested for killing his wife.

According to the suspect's attorney, Jaime Cancino Leon, prosecutors will make their decision early next week - and the most likely charge will be first-degree murder, stemming from the death of Monica Beresford-Redman last month in Cancun.

Cancino told TMZ he's displeased with Mexican officials because it's easier for them to simply charge his client than actually investigate the case.

"Bruce has never had the chance to defend himself," the lawyer said. "They didn't even give him the chance to participate in the investigation."

If a Mexican judge determines there's probable cause to charge Beresford-Redman, he'll likely get extradited to that country. A conviction of of first-degree murder there results in a prison sentence of four to 20 years.

** UPDATE: As of Monday, May 31, 2010, these charges have been filed.

A month after his late wife's body was flown to the United States, Bruce Beresford-Redman was permitted to leave Mexico and return to Los Angeles.

Now, the former TV producer suspected of murdering Monica Beresford-Redman and stuffing her body in a Cancun sewer on April 8, is taking the necessary steps to regain custody of his children.

Speaking to TMZ, attorney Richard Hirsch says that his client has not been accused of a crime. Therefore, he possesses this legal right and "that is probably what is going to happen next."

While Bruce was detained and questioned in Mexico, his parents were looking after his two kids. They filed for custody a few weeks ago.

Beresford-Redman is still considered a "person of interest" in his wife's death, according to Mexican authorities.

Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, involving a firearm. He was pulled over and taken into custody early this morning.

He was also taken into custody for driving on a suspended license. Knight is still in custody and bail is set at $65,000 ... pretty small amount for Suge.

Authorities said that Knight was arrested in connection to an alleged crime that occurred shortly before his arrest ... but they wouldn't elaborate further.

A witness in the incident told police that the rap executive pointed a gun at another car this morning - while sitting in the driver's seat of his own SUV.

No word if the target was Akon or Yukmouth.

GANGSTA: Suge Knight's 23,869th arrest sounds pretty violent. Dude has a mean streak, though we would too if our mom named us Marion. Please don't murder us.

Reports say after cops received the information, officers located Suge's car in the Los Angeles area and initiated a "high risk stop" - i.e. guns were drawn.

Officers drew their firearms and ordered Suge - and two women - out of the vehicle.  Suge was eventually taken into custody and arrested for assault.

Pretty run of the mill stuff for the hip hop mogul. Knight should be free, accept a plea deal and be back on the streets terrorizing people before long.

Years before she became the first Muslim-American to win the Miss USA crown, Rima Fakih won another prestigious title - "Stripper 101" pole dancing champion!

Back in 2007, the sexy, newly-minuted beauty pageant queen dominated a stripper contest for local Detroit radio morning show called Mojo in the Morning.

Forget the prizes won last night. Rima Fakih earned fabulous prizes for the stripper victory: "jewelry, gift cards, adult toys and a stripper pole for home use."

Top that, Donald Trump!

In case Miss USA Rima Fakih needs a career to fall back on ...

But, lest we start thinking this ranks with Tara Conner and Carrie Prejean scandals in Miss USA lore, it's not even close. She was clothed during all pole riding.

Just the same, you can see the polished form she has, and the natural managed to walk away with a bra stuffed with dollar bills ... those are some nice tips!

Click to enlarge more pictures of Rima ... mostly pageant, not pole-related:

Should Rima Fakih be allowed to keep her title?

Juan-Carlos Cruz was the Food Network's Calorie Commando. More recently, he allegedly hatched a plot to recruit homeless guys as commandos to kill his wife.

Santa Monica, Calif., police say Cruz was arrested and booked on suspicion of solicitation to commit murder. Cruz is currently being held on $5 million bail.

The homeless men say they were instructed to "cut [a] woman's throat."

According to one of the men, Little Dave, Cruz said he wanted someone to do "dirty deeds done dirt cheap." He says Cruz told him he'd give him "a grand."

Cruz then gave Little Dave a box which contained a box cutter, a disposable cell phone, gloves, a pocket watch and half of 10 $100 bills. Yup, torn in half.

Juan-Carlos Cruz Picture

Juan-Carlos Cruz: Calorie Commando. Really bad henchman.

Juan-Carlos promised to give him the other halves when the job was done, and Little Dave says Cruz showed him a picture of the other half of the money.

Little Dave says he then told his friend Shane, who called Cruz on the phone and discussed the plan. They got a third dude, named Big Dave, involved too.

Big Dave contacted Cruz, who met all three homeless men in Santa Monica. Cruz went over the plan, showed Big Dave a picture of the alleged female target.

The target was later identified as Cruz's wife.

British actress Charlotte Lewis has come forward to say legendary filmmaker Roman Polanski, 76, sexually abused her over 25 years ago, when she was only 16.

This was four years after he fled the U.S. to avoid sentencing on charges that he unlawfully had sex with a minor (statutory rape), a legal fight he is still waging.

Lewis, who co-starred with Eddie Murphy in The Golden Child, was front and center at (of course) a Gloria Allred news conference yesterday to tell her story.

Lewis and Allred met with L.A. County Deputy D.A. David Walgren this week to make the allegations, which coincide with decades-old efforts to sentence Polanski. 

It is unclear if Lewis' claims will be used for the extradition or sentencing case involving Roman Polanski, who fled the U.S. in 1977 after bedding a 13-year-old.

This is the Charlotte Lewis accusing Roman Polanski of sexual abuse, on a 1993 cover of Playboy. Other pictures of a redhead are a Lost character by the same name.

As a French citizen, Polanski has avoided being extradited to the U.S. for decades. He is under house arrest in Switzerland after finally being taken into custody last year.

The law of consent in France is 15, but Allred says that's irrelevant to the allegations made by Charlotte Lewis. So will Polanski ever face the music for either incident?

Polanski's legal team said in a statement:

"We don't have any information about statements at a Gloria Allred press conference today, but we do know the D.A. continues to refuse to provide the Swiss government accurate and complete information relevant to the extradition issue."

Polanski earned Oscar nominations for Best Director for Rosemary's Baby, Tess and The Pianist, winning for the latter. His most recent film is this year's The Ghost Writer.
