Richard Hatch, winner of Survivor and current contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, is going to jail for not paying taxes for the money he won on Survivor.

The reality star has served more than three years for tax evasion already. He has been under supervised release and was supposed to re-file his taxes.

Hatch, who apparently can't outwit, outplay or outlast the Internal Revenue Service, failed to do so again and did not fork over taxes from 2000-01.

Hatch, R

Richard needs to Hatch a plan to hire an accountant.

"It needs to be a severe punishment," U.S. District Court Judge William Smith told Hatch. "That's the only thing that will deter you in the future."

Hatch was also ordered to serve 26 months of supervised release. During that time, a quarter of his gross income will be paid directly to the IRS.

Hatch, who now owes an estimated $2 million, reports to prison Monday. There's a lesson in this, people. Withholding. It works pretty effectively.

The L.A. County District Attorney filed a single misdemeanor battery charge against Mel Gibson today. The actor, as expected, pleaded no contest.

The misdemeanor specifically targets someone who cohabits or has a child with the alleged victim, but is less severe than felony domestic abuse.

Mel will not receive jail time for the alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva, but will continue to undergo counseling and be on 36 months' probation.

One of the terms of probation - he cannot use violence against anyone. Mel may continue to have "peaceful contact" with Oksana going forward.

Mel: Troubled Fella

The nearly year-long Mel Gibson saga has come to an end.

A no-contest plea, while not technically a guilty plea, has the same immediate effect as a guilty plea, and is often offered as a part of a plea deal.

That's what happened today. While Mel felt he could win the case in court and be completely exonerated, this was his quickest means to an end.

Gibson also must perform court-ordered community service at a charity organization, and he elected to do so at Mending Kids International.

The group provides life-changing surgical care to children in need. None other than Mel's estranged wife Robyn Gibson serves as President.

Meanwhile, Oksana Grigorieva will NOT be charged with felony extortion in the concurrent investigation by the L.A. County District Attorney.

An event-filled month for Charlie Sheen turned especially noteworthy yesterday, as the actor reached a custody agreement with ex-wife Brooke Mueller.

Details were not disclosed, but Muller is expected to drop her restraining order and Sheen will soon have access again to sons Bob and Max. (Side note: pray for sons Bob and Max.) Said the two sides' attorneys in a joint statement:

"Brooke and Charlie have reached an agreement that resolves their differences. For the benefit of the children, the terms of their agreement will not be disclosed. They ask the public for privacy on this matter."

Following this arrangement, Sheen was caught by surprise later Thursday night, when police raided his house in apparent response to a call that said the actor had threatened to harm himself with a gun.

The latest issue of Us Weekly states that Christina Aguilera has hit rock bottom.

But, sadly, that actually does not appear the case.

A witness at Osteria Mozza - the same establishment where Christina and Matt Rutler dined/drank prior to their arrest earlier this month - tells the tabloid the couple returned to that restaurant just three days after their wasted run-in with the police. And?

"She acted as if the arrest never happened," the onlooker says. "When their server offered them dessert, they asked for more wine."

Pssst, Christina: Maybe someone else should drive.

Tinger and her boyfriend wised up and took a chauffeured limo home, but a friend is still considered:

"She should see the arrest as a wake-up call, but she doesn't. She doesn't think things are that bad."

Coinciding with Mel Gibson pleading no contest to battery, the case against the mother of his child (and his domestic abuse accuser) is also ending.

The extortion investigation of Oksana Grigorieva has been officially rejected by the Los Angeles County D.A.'s Office, according to Radar Online.

The battery charge against Mel will officially be filed on Friday, at which point Mel will plead no contest and be sentenced. He will not go to jail.

The D.A.'s office will announce that the extortion case was rejected at this time, as there wasn't enough evidence to prove that a crime occurred.

"Oksana could speak at Mel's hearing Friday. She could make a victim's impact statement, but at this point, it doesn't seem likely," a source says.

Gibson will appear Friday at the Airport Courthouse in front of Judge Stephanie Sautner to receive the relatively light sentence he plea bargained.

His camp claimed Oksana tried to extort him with the Mel Gibson tapes. The investigation snapped months, but charges will now be thrown out.

What do you think? Was justice served in the case?

MTV headed back to Las Vegas for the premiere of its 25th edition of The Real World last night.

Among the highlights was a dinner scene in which the roommates played "Never Have I Ever..." and cast member Dustin Zito was forced to admit that he's been in a threesome and, yes, he's kissed a man.

Viewers were then filled in on the reason why:

In order to escape a life in Louisiana that included a bi-polar, drug-addicted mother, Zito moved to Los Angeles and joined FratPad, a Web series that features (often naked) men living together.

Is Dustin ashamed of his past? It doesn't seem that way.

But he is concerned about what his new roommates will think when they see clips such as the one above.

Confirming earlier reports, Mel Gibson will in fact be charged with domestic violence, stemming from an alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva in early 2010.

He will also plead no contest Friday and avoid jail time.

According to TMZ, Mel will appear in court and enter a plea on the charge of simple battery - a lesser charge than corporal injury on a spouse.

NO CONTEST: Mel will be convicted, but on a lesser charge.

Mel was emotionally torn over the impending criminal charge. He denies Oksana's claims and believed he could win, but feared for his family.

After depositions, huge legal bills, the humiliation of the Mel Gibson tapes and non-stop scrutiny, he sought compromise and a swift resolution.

The pair's protracted court battle has taken a major toll on him and he didn't want to subject his family to more of the same. So he cut a deal.

Under the plea, he will undergo counseling but not spend any time behind bars. Gibson's lawyer, Blair Berk, released the following statement:

Soon after the season six premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County on Sunday night, cast member Tamra Barney made a startling announcement to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live!.

Referring to the date rape drug Rohypnol, Barney said: "I got roofied."

Claiming Peggy Tanous was also a victim, Tamra has gone into detail about what she claims went down at a recent New York City party she attended for the show's press tour.

"I know the guy that did it walked up with two drinks that were pink," Barney tells Radar Online. "He had sunglasses on and looked Middle Eastern. That's all I remember."

Another week, another odd, unexplained Chris Brown photo leak.

First, it was the photo of a battered Rihanna taken after their 2009 fight. Then a photo of Chris banged up after the same altercation. Now ... wait for it ...

A photo of Chris Brown nude has surfaced online! Woo!

WHAT NOW?!??! A Chris Brown nude photo leak, that's what!

Just when you think Brown can't have more negative press to deal with, he manages to one-up himself. This time, with an intimate cell phone picture of himself.

The Chris Brown nude pic was sent to an ex, reportedly, but there's no confirmation of who that ex is. Rihanna is certainly an option, but again, not confirmed.

Whoever it was sent to (and thus leaked it last week), the singer is standing in a bathroom in front of a mirror, buck a$$ naked. We're talking full frontal nudity.

Fernando Flores, the former bodyguard of Britney Spears, is still suing her for sexual harassment - and claims he has the nude pictures to prove his claims!

At the height of her emotional breakdown in 2007-08, Flores worked for Brit, and accuses her of abusing her kids and subjecting him to "relentless flirting."

In fact, Fernando says it wasn’t uncommon for the “Till The World Ends” singer to try to "lure him to her lair" when other employees’ heads were turned.

Fernando Flores claims he's got pics a lot hotter than this!

The star has denied his claims and threatened to countersue. But Fernando has not backed down, and says he may even up the ante in this legal/PR fight.

He's reportedly been blabbing to pals about plans to use “filthy” pics Spears texted to him in an attempt to win a multimillion dollar judgement against her.

“They are really explicit images that will shock and disgust the majority of her fans,” said a friend who claims to have seen Flores' Britney Spears pictures.

The minority of her fans may be turned on, however.
