Former NBA star Jayson Williams was partying at an Upper East Side bar before he made like Tiger Woods and crashed his luxury SUV into a tree.

He was charged Tuesday with DUI. The extent of Williams' injuries range from only minor injuries to a fractured neck, depending on the report.

Photos show him mugging with strangers at Aces & Eights Saloon, and a patron at the bar said his friend bought Williams at least three shots:

"He seemed like he was having a good time. Not any different from anyone else. I mean, he wasn't sloppy drunk or falling all over the place."

Jayson Williams was said to be good-natured when asked to pose for photos before leaving the bar just before 2 a.m. and walking uptown.

After leaving Aces & Eights, Williams headed to Bar East a few blocks away, the Aces owner said. The bartender at Bar East didn't comment.

It's unclear where Williams went after that, but at 3:15 a.m., he exited on FDR Drive, jumped a curb and smashed his Mercedes-Benz SUV.

The troubled athlete hit a 40-foot tree near E. 20th Street and Avenue C.

Williams insists he was not the driver, however,  there's both video and witnesses to prove he was, according to law enforcement sources.

In addition to video, there are witnesses who place Williams behind the wheel, despite him being in the passenger seat when police arrived.

Law enforcement sources are confident Williams was the only one in the SUV and no one was seen fleeing the scene. Not good, Jayson.

Casey Johnson will be laid to rest later this week.

The family of the late 30-year old heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, who passed away over the weekend, has scheduled a private service to be attended by close relatives and loved ones.

“The Johnson family wishes to thank everyone who has expressed condolences and support during this trying time," said family spokesman Jesse Derris. "Your thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated."

The only details that have been released regarding the funeral come from Derris, as well, who said arrangements have been made for Johnson's body to be "flown back east to her final resting place."

As for the cause of death, the L.A. County Coroner's office states there's no evidence Casey took her own life: her body showed no signs of heart disease, liver, kidney, vascular or other obvious problems.

Toxicology report findings should be released in the coming days.

Veteran Fox News anchor Brit Hume is weighing in on the Tiger Woods scandal with advice for the star. Simply put, he thinks Tiges could use a little Christ.

Dude could use more than that. Remember, the list of Tiger Woods mistresses we know about is in double figures, people. Jesus would have His hands full.

On Fox News Sunday, Hume said the golfer, who cheated on Elin Nordegren countless times, should convert to Christianity for the "redemption" he needs.

"Whether he can recover as a person I think is a very open question," Hume said. "The extent to which he can recover seems to me depends on his faith."

"It's a tragic situation. He is said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption offered by the Christian faith."

Some Buddhists are not pleased with Brit Hume's advice to Tiger Woods.

Hume said his message to Woods, whose fall from grace amid this sordid sex scandal has been epic, would be, "Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.'"

Buddhists everywhere are likely to take issue with this.

"I don't like to point out others' faults, but given the record, I would think Christians would show a little more humility about offering advice to the sexually wayward," Barbara O'Brien opined on her Buddhism about.com blog.

Kyle Lovett of TheReformedBuddhist.com asks: "Could Hume get away with saying something like this about Jewish people, black people or the Muslim Faith?"

"You betcha he couldn't," Lovett adds. "Why should he be able to skate away scott free when speaking about Buddhists? Because we are only 3-4 percent of the population of the US? Hell No! Sometimes we have to speak up."

Rather than apologizing, Hume doubled down on The O'Reilly Factor, saying he thinks "Jesus Christ offers Tiger Woods something that Tiger Woods badly needs."

What do you think of Hume's advice to Tiger?

As they say below, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian are living the dream.

By losing weight and fitting the societal image of what makes a good body? Heavens, no.

Instead, their dream involves raking in cash by shilling for an unhealthy, unlicensed, unregulated product. The heretofore curvy (and sexy) sisters have sold their souls for a few bucks.

Kim, the same woman that used to be so proud of her curves, has shrunken to the size of a skeleton and is encouraging fans to do the same in the following QuickTrim commercial. It's pathetic.

Remember, readers: QuickTrim is NOT FDA approved. It's a cleansing system that will cause one to sit on the toilet all day and has no guarantee of long-term weight loss success.

If you are unsatisfied with your weight, eat a balanced diet and exercise. This public service announcement is brought to you by The Hollywood Gossip staff - and we weren't paid a penny to make it!

NBA star Gilbert Arenas packs heat. What he does not pack (or apply for, to put it more accurately) is a license for any of the weapons in his locker.

The Washington Wizards player, who is being investigated for allegedly pulling a gun on a teammate December 24, likely did so with an illegal gun.

Step Into the Arenas

He has no valid license to possess guns he stored in his locker in D.C., according to law enforcement sources, which could land him in big trouble.

There were reportedly four guns (not three, as had been reported) in Arenas' locker, including a gold-plated Desert Eagle - a gigantic handgun.

AGENT ZERO: Maybe Gilbert Arenas should change his nickname to 007.

The star could be charged with carrying a pistol without a license, which might mean strict punishment under the District of Columbia's tough gun laws.

Gilbert Arenas could also face assault charges from the alleged gun-toting standoff (what he calls a prank gone awry) with teammate Javaris Crittenton.

Sources say he will soon be under grand jury investigation.

D.C. police plan to bring in Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders today for questioning, with GM Ernie Grunfeld to be brought in later this week.

If he keeps up this frantic pace, Redmond O'Neal will be positioned to join the holy trinity of celebrity drug offenders along with legends DMX and Pete Doherty.

How these guys are ever not in jail is baffling, but it looks like Red's luck may have run out after eight months of staying clean (or at least avoiding arrest).

Redmond O'Neal Pic

At his court-ordered drug-and-alcohol treatment center, the son of the late Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal has yet again been arrested on felony charges.

The latest bust went down on December 29, when O'Neal returned to the facility (this is his fourth go-round in rehab) after earning a 24-hour free pass.

He used that pass to score some drugs, apparently.

Redmond O'Neal is not smart. Or clean.

Redmond O'Neal appeared in court this morning for his latest probation violation, and was ordered to remain jailed until his February 2 sentencing.

In the meantime, O'Neal will serve 30 days in a lockdown rehab program, Los Angeles District Attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison tells E! News.

Last April, the troubled addict was caught carrying narcotics through a security checkpoint while visiting a friend in ... wait ... wait for it ... jail.

Wow. That's about as intelligent as driving under the influence and crashing a car into a tree. Oops, sorry Tiger Woods. And Jayson Williams.

In early 2009, Adam Lambert won over viewers on American Idol.

But that wasn't the singer's biggest victory to date.

In a new interview with OK! Weekly, Lambert opens up about his life-changing victory over obesity.

“I lost probably about forty pounds about ten years ago,” he said. “When I was in high school, I had bad eating habits. I ate a bunch of crap – a bunch of fast food and stuff. I learned more about what’s healthy and what’s not healthy. I used a little bit of self-control.”

Svelte Singer

After shedding the excess weight, how did Lambert feel?

“Oh, a hundred times better. Physically I felt better, but I also had better self-esteem and body image.”

Lambert added that he lacks the self-discipline to incorporate workouts into his daily routine, but we're not too worried about him. You'd be surprised how many calories can be burned by gyrating around on stage.

On December 28, we reported that Katy Perry and Russell Brand might be engaged. Today, you can officially take "might be" out of the equation!

The crazy pair, who have been together for just a few months, decided to make it official five days ago while on vacation together in Jaipur, India.

A pal says that Russell Brand proposed and Katy Perry said yes. Then he kissed a girl, ladies and gentlemen, and she liked it. Sorry, that was bad.

The exotic trip, a Perry pal said, "was his Christmas gift. She told him she loved Indian culture while they were in England, so he surprised her."

Looks like he had more than one surprise in store!

Katy Perry and Russell Brand just work as a couple.

On her Twitter page December 29, the pop singer shared a sweet snapshot of her and the zany British comedian in front of India's famed Taj Mahal.

"He built this for me," she wrote beneath the photo.

On New Year's Day, Katy Perry shared another tourist photo: her hand being painted with a traditional Henna tattoo. "Isn't it lovely?" she wrote.

At November's MTV Europe Music Awards, Perry paid tribute to Brand via her on-stage underpants, emblazoned with his nickname, "Rusty."

Perry has "never connected with anybody like this," says a friend of the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star, who is reportedly "super into her."

Good to hear! And congrats!
