Following in the footsteps of BFF Whitney Port, who did these honors a few weeks back, Lauren Conrad threw the first pitch Saturday at L.A.'s Dodger Stadium.

Wearing a Dodgers cap and customized jersey, LC demonstrated good form, even if she throws a little like a girl. Which we suppose is okay if you are a girl.

The retired star of The Hills, who was cheered on by actor boyfriend Kyle Howard, brought luck to the home team, which beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 3-2.

Here's LC throwing the high heat ...

Having bid farewell to The Hills May 31, the unemployed, but still cute and marketable Lauren Conrad auditions for a spot in the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen.

Click to enlarge more pics of Lauren Conrad's Dodger debut last night, with a bonus pic of LC and Kyle Howard at Thursday's NBA Finals game, also in L.A. See how she stacks up against other hurlers in our gallery of celebrity Dodger fans!

Pete Doherty has not been heard from in ages.

Fittingly, the supposed rocker and one-time celebrity gossip site regular has returned to prominence by taking part in the two things he does best:

  • Taking drugs.
  • Getting arrested.

The former boyfriend of Kate Moss was arrested in Switzerland this weekend after being accused of taking drugs on a British Airways flight.

Peter Doherty was detained on arrival in Geneva after cabin staff found him slumped in a toilet on board. He was escorted back to his seat (in economy class, talk about a sign of the times) where he was apparently intoxicated.

A member of the cabin crew found a hypodermic needle in the toilet and the pilot called police to meet the plane when it arrived in Switzerland.

A passenger told the UK's Sunday Mail: “A few people on the plane recognized Pete, who went to the bathroom more than halfway into the flight. He had been in there about 25 minutes when the announcement came for the crew to prepare for landing."

“The crew knocked on the door but Pete didn’t come out."

"They eventually managed to get in there about 10 minutes before we landed. Pete was taken back to his seat and he just looked completely out of it. One of the crew took a needle out of the toilet wrapped in a tissue.”

He was fined but allowed to play his gig before returning to London.

We recommend that the authorities order Pete to go into exile along with Amy Winehouse in St. Lucia for maximum entertainment value.

Might George Clooney soon lose his title of The Planet's Most Eligible Bachelor?

Yes, if Lucy Wolvert has anything to say about it.

The aspiring model just started dating the actor last month, but is "totally smitten with George," a friend told tabloid The Globe. “They’ve started out casual, but things are moving fast and she’s told friends they’re planning to spend a large part of the summer together."

Beneath this gruff exterior, George Clooney knows how to please a woman.

Wolvert is also telling pals that she might move in with Clooney. It would be hard to blame her. After all:

“Besides being an amazing lover, Lucy says George is a true gentleman who really knows how to treat a lady," the source said. “Everyone’s just hoping it lasts and she doesn’t get her heart broken.”

What do you think, readers? Will this relationship last?

As if they weren't dealing with enough in the wake of his tragic death, the family of David Carradine is now "profoundly disturbed" by the publication of a photo that appears to be Carradine hanging in his Bangkok hotel room.

The shocking photo - which Thai police believe was taken by the forensics team - appeared on the cover of a Thai celebrity gossip tabloid called Thai Rath.

The photo shows a naked body, presumably that of David Carradine, suspended from a bar in a closet, with his hands apparently bound together above his head.

The paper did not identify the source of the image.

The suspicious death of David Carradine (1936-2009) remains shrouded in mystery, with an alleged photo of the actor's hanging marking the latest development.

The photo has yet to be published by any additional tabloids or websites.

Thai police have since said that accidental suffocation may be the cause of the actor's death after they discovered a rope around Carradine's genitals.

Tattoos on the lower half of his nude body can be seen.

Sources close to the actor told Radar Online that he had a history of engaging in auto-erotic asphyxiation, a sexual practice often involving a rope around the neck.

In response to the image, Carradine's brother Keith released a statement that says:

"The family of David Carradine wants it understood that, per attorney Mark Geragos, any persons, publications or media outlets will be fully prosecuted for invasion of privacy and causing severe emotional distress if the photos are published."

Looks like Britney Spears has one less legal scuffle to come home to.

Attorneys for the singer hare making an absolute killing these days, but at least they've finally achieved some results to justify their seven-figure fees.

Britney Spears From Behind

A lawsuit brought by a manager Spears worked with years ago, and who said she broke her agreement to pay him commissions until 2008, has been settled.

The "Toxic" singer, now touring in London, worked with Johnny Wright until 2003, according to the suit, and she stopped cutting him checks at the end of '06.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, per the Los Angeles Times.

Also on Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz, who has been overseeing Spears' conservatorship and approving money exchanges right and left, signed off on another $193,000 in legal fees to be paid by Spears' estate.

Britney Spears had the night off between shows at London's O2 Arena, where she's performing eight times before the Circus hits Manchester's M.E.N. Arena.

Heidi Pratt, the predominantly-plastic wife of Spencer Pratt, who is also known as Heidi Montag, was hospitalized Saturday in Costa Rica, according to reports.

The incident took place during the gruesome twosome's stay in isolation from the rest of the cast of NBC's reality show I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

Spencer Pratt accompanied his wife on the ambulance ride and remains by her bedside. Various reports said she was suffering from a stomach infection.

There was no immediate comment from either NBC or Spedi's rep.

The news was broken by Spencer's unintelligent sister, Stephanie Pratt, who Tweeted that "[Heidi was] rushed to the hospital and has an IV in her arm after being locked in a dark room for 3 days w/ no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok."

SAD SACK PRATT: Heidi Montag's week in Costa Rica has been tumultuous, to say the least. First, poor girl lost her dry shampoo. Now she's landed in the hospital.

Stephanie Pratt blames NBC for "going too far" in punishing The Hills pair.

Last week, Speidi tried to quit the bug-eating, jungle-surviving show after just one episode, then begged to return, then was relegated to a dark chamber for 24 hours straight while the rest of the cast voted on their possible return.

NBC executive Paul Telegdy said the "insincere, lazy, entitled" Pratts had to endure a stint in "isolation" before the cast and producers would decided their fate.

He says the Pratts "are going to bare their souls." We can't wait to see it. Here's hoping Speidi quits after a violent meltdown, then begs for a third chance.

When the celebrity gossip media shifted its mega-mom focus from Nadya Suleman to Kate Gosselin, there's no way the former was ceding her crown without a fight!

Earlier this week, Suleman slammed the embattled Gosselin as "desperate for attention" and "over-emotional,” as well as criticizing the bikini body of the mother of eight, tearing up photos of her on camera, and so on and so forth.

Octomom Shops

Yesterday, following Kate's lead in refusing to shut the eff up and go away for the sake of humanity, Octomom had more choice words to say... about herself.

During a “private” conversation with her best friend – and Radar Online of course - she opened up for the first time about the father of her 14 (!?) children.

Nadya Suleman says she coerced the unnamed man to be a sperm donor, but that he was very pissed when he learned she froze his boys to keep having kids.

"I screwed myself. I screwed up my life and I screwed up my kids' lives. What the heck am I going to do?" Octomom asks. "I have to pretend I don't regret it."

Nads also reveals that her older children ask about their mysterious father every day: "He's just afraid. He's hiding," she says. "He'll lose everything".

Although the 33-year-old drain on society previously described her kids' dad as a "friend," she now admits that she “secretly wanted him in my life."

Suleman says she wants to apologize to the father, saying "he's probably angry and resentful." She adds, "I'm the ghost that's haunting his existence."

Funny, that's what Hailey Glassman said about Jon Gosselin.

If the unnamed father does not initiate a relationship with her children on his own, Suleman claims she will finally reveal his identity to her oldest child, Elijah, when he turns 18 in ten years, so he can contact his dad if desired.

We wouldn't bet on it. Dude is totally off the grid, living in a trailer in West Virginia as part of a witness protection program and unlikely to surface.

Wow. It's hard to believe it was three years ago today that The Hollywood Gossip burst on the celebrity gossip scene with a single news article.

Fittingly, on that devilish date - 6/6/06 - Lindsay Lohan was the topic.

What a wild ride it's been since. To commemorate our third birthday, we're taking a look back at the stars who generated the most buzz on our website for each of our 36 months dissecting the ever-changing landscape of celeb gossip ...

June 2006: Heather Mills. Heather Mills sucks. But man, did that peg-legged former call girl and venerable digger of gold give us great stories for a time.

July 2006: Nicole Richie. At this point, Nicole had not eaten since '05. Interim beau Brody Jenner tried to force-feed her at the urging of Spencer Pratt.

August 2006: Kristin Cavallari. Speaking of Brody Jenner, he used to date Kristin Cavallari! If you recall, they were a super-hot couple for a few months.

September & October 2006: Lindsay Lohan. Incredibly, back then, HoHan was still in the early stage of her downward spiral into oblivion - drinking, snorting coke, sleeping with anything breathing and making awful movies.

November 2006: Chris Ivery. Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo made a ton of headlines, for some reason, when she got engaged to boyfriend Chris Ivery.

December 2006: Paris Hilton. Disease-riddled. Useless. Always in the news. We're shocked it took Paris six whole months to top our list, but she came through.

Britney Spears: No Pants

Britney and Paris, circa 2006, during their brief tenure as pants-less BFFs.

January 2007: Britney Spears. Fresh off her divorce from K-Fed, Brit went on an epic binge of drinking, random sexual encounters and clubbing with no pants.

February & March 2007: Antonella Barba. Jersey girl couldn't sing to save her life on American Idol, but her oral skills were on full display. If you know what we mean. We mean there were pics online of her going to town on some schmoe.

April 2007: Olivia Mojica. Antonella finally ceded her web traffic crown to a fellow Idol reject whose sex tape brought her back to prominence. How poetic.

May 2007: Lauren Conrad. Beautiful without trying too hard, The Hills star has been a fixture on The Hollywood Gossip since its inception. We heart her!

June 2007: Joslyn Morse. Baseball star Alex Rodriguez was labeled "Stray-Rod" after his affair with this manly stripper. Seriously. Look for the Adam's apple.

Kobe Bryant's ex-maid, Maria Jimenez, wants to make one thing clear: It's her lawsuit and she can talk about the details if she damn well wants to.

Jimenez filed papers in Orange County Superior Court, citing California's anti-SLAPP statute which says she has the right to talk about the case in public.

Kobe Bryant, Family

This despite a confidentiality agreement she signed with the Los Angeles Lakers guard and his wife, Vanessa, back when she first took the housekeeping job.

The Bryants filed papers last month saying the opposite - that Maria could sue them, but couldn't speak to the press about it. Good luck enforcing that one.

Maria Jiminez is suing the NBA star and his wife, claiming Vanessa "badgered, harassed and humiliated" her, repeatedly "yelling, screaming and criticizing her in front of Kobe, their children, employees and other people in the house."

The final straw came when Maria put an expensive blouse of Vanessa's in the washer, apparently by mistake. Vanessa supposedly demanded that Maria put her hand in dog feces to retrieve the price tag for the blouse. Classy.

Kobe Bryant and the Lakers are scheduled to absolutely demolish Orlando in Game Two of the NBA Finals Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
