To quote Eddie Murphy's classic stand up routine, Raw: Linda Hogan wants half!

In her divorce settlement with former WWE superstar Hulk Hogan, Linda is reportedly seeking half of the couple's more than $9.5 million in assets, including a share of the value of their Bel Air mansion.

Hulk Hogan's Girlfriend

According to People magazine, Linda Bollea (Hulk's real name is Terry Bollea) refers to the 24-year marriage "irretrievably broken."

Citing the divorce petition filed in Florida's Pinellas Pasco Circuit Court, Linda wants to share parental responsibility for their son Nick with whom she hopes with live while her husband has "liberal" visitation rights.

The couple's eldest child, Brooke Hogan, 19, is not legally subject to child support requirements. She's also a terrible singer.

Linda also seeks an unspecified amount in alimony and child support from The Hulkster, as well as health insurance for Nick Bollea, who has been charged with reckless driving after a car crash in August.

The former star of ABC's The Bachelor - and permanent stud - U.S. Navy Lt. Andy Baldwin, once again showed off his football skills, laying out for a pass on the beach in Hawaii, where he resides. You gotta love this kind of intensity.

Andy Baldwin: Trying to win a contract with an NFL team?

Not only does he have rock-hard abs and a chiseled physique, but Andy Baldwin at least had the decency to pick a frickin' girl on The Bachelor before breaking off the engagement later in the year. You heard us, Brad Womack. You sellout.

As fans of the long-running reality TV show surely recall, the lovely Tessa Horst won the final rose, but officially got the Baldwin boot after the show ended.

Perhaps a big part of the reason for that? A certain former Miss Iran, Sepideh Haftgoli. And the fact that Andy is being deployed to the Middle East in 2008.

Celebrity baby extraordinaire Suri Cruise spiced up her life, if you will, taking in a private concert with the recently reunited Spice Girls.

Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and their one-and-a-half-year-old daughter took in a show with the group during a surprise visit in L.A. as they rehearsed.

According to the Spice Girls' official website:

"Tom and Katie enjoyed an impromptu audience with the girls and were treated to an exclusive performance, while [Suri Cruise] danced along to the music."

The TomKat clan at a Spice Girls rehearsal: Very cute stuff.

Said Holmes' pal, Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice:

"[My husband David Beckham] and I are great friends with Tom and Katie. It was lovely of them to come down to rehearsals, a nice surprise. Katie has told me that she used to be a big Spice fan, so it was great for her to meet the other girls."

No word on whether the whole TomKat clan went over to peep the sub-par Dancing with the Stars after the Spice Girls rehearsal.

Or something like that.

Some success in her various professional roles, and her romance with her "best friend" and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, has Ashlee Simpson sounding downright giddy about life these days. And she's a lot more resilient than she used to be.

Chief among Ashlee's confidence-boosting achievements of late, she tells CosmoGirl - her 2006 stint as Roxie Hart in the London production of the musical Chicago.

"There was a time when what people said about me could really get to me. But working on Chicago helped me come into my own," says Ashlee Simpson.

"[Theater acting] had been a dream of mine since I was little. It taught me to be more comfortable with myself."

That level of self-possession, the 23-year-old lip-synching queen and daughter of Joe Simpson admits, helped her deal with fame significantly better, too.

"I've gotten to a point where being credible with myself is more important to me than what anyone else says," she explains. "People make up stories about you, but they don't really know you. ... I'm not fazed by that."

Simpson also credits Pete Wentz, 28, with providing encouragement in her private life that has boosted her professional work - in particular, her third album, which is due out next year and which should be awesome.

"He's a great sounding board and very supportive," Simpson says. "Pete and I compliment each other. We are best friends, and we encourage each other. I think that is so important. It builds a solid foundation."

She did not talk about the Pete Wentz sex tape rumors at all.

We may be getting ahead of ourselves with that headline... but, come on, it's simply time for Marie Osmond to be voted off Dancing with the Stars.

Last night's performances proved - once again - that she isn't in the class of the two other celebrity finalists, Melanie Brown and Helio Castroneves.

Our staff would be thrilled if either of those stars took home the crown, but we'd prefer to see it sitting atop Helio's head. After all, Mel B is a Spice Girl. Doesn't that mean she's already a dancer? We pointed this out last year regarding Joey Fatone. People who dance for a living should be disallowed from competing.

Anyway, read through this Dancing with the Stars recap right now to get the full scoop. Then, say a little prayer that Marie goes home early tonight.

Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was shot by an intruder in his home in Miami and has been airlifted to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.

"It could have been a possible burglary, it could have been a possible robbery," Lt. Nancy Perez said. "It has not been confirmed as yet."

Authorities were called to Sean Taylor's home at 1:45 a.m. today. The Miami Herald says that paramedics found Taylor with a gunshot wound to the groin.

Sean Taylor is in critical condition after being shot early today.

A week before Taylor was shot, a burglar broke into his home, rifled through his things, and left a knife on a bed inside the home, police records show.

Eight days later, this morning, noises in the dark spooked Sean Taylor and his girlfriend. It turned out to be their worst nightmare.

At least one armed intruder had broken into the $900,000 Palmetto Bay house and were at his bedroom door. Sean Taylor rose from bed, grabbed a machete, and went to investigate, according to a police source.

Just outside the room, he was then shot in the groin and critically wounded. He collapsed into the room, where he breathed heavily, blood gushing from his body, according to Taylor's lawyer and family friend, Richard Sharpstein.

Someone fired two shots at Sean Taylor, the other bullet missing him. Taylor's girlfriend immediately went to help him. The shooter fled immediately

"Nothing was stolen. They shot at him and fled," said Sharpstein, who was visiting at the hospital. "He is clearly the victim of assault in his own home."

Sean Taylor emerged from surgery at 12:30 p.m. but is unconscious, with his brain at risk of damage from major amounts of blood loss

Taylor is no stranger to guns. Back in 2005, he was accused of brandishing a gun and hitting a man during a fight. Felony charges against him were dropped, and he plead no contest to two misdemeanors. He was given probation.

Much as we make light of the troubles of some athletes, such as Michael Vick, here's hoping Taylor pulls through this and his attackers are tracked down.

Paul McCartney is a tru playa, yo. 4 realz.

Mere weeks after canoodling with Nancy Shevell, the most famous member of The Beatles is reportedly dating a new random celebrity:

Pic of Paul McCartney

Photographs printed Sunday in Britain's News of the World show Sir Paul and actress Rosanna Arquette strolling side-by-side through the grounds of the Kenwood House, a historic Hampstead home on November 19. (The newspaper also quotes unnamed witnesses, who claim the two were kissing.)

Paul McCartney and Rosanna Arquette? Really?!?

A rep for McCartney, told People magazine "no comment" on the outing. Arquette's rep didn't immediately return calls for comment.

We've learned this isn't the first sighting of the pair, however. At the August 11 James Taylor concert at East Hampton's Ross School in New York, Arquette was seen leaning on McCartney's shoulder during "How Sweet It Is (to be Loved by You)."

It must be a nice change for Paul. His anthem with Heather Mills was closer to How Terrifying It Is (to be Gold-Dug by You)."

Forced away from Malibu due to the latest round of fires, insanely gorgeous couple Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves did a bit of shopping in Beverly Hills over the weekend.

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves Photo

Forced to evacuate their homes, it's not hard to imagine what McConaughey and Alves picked up at the store:

  • A fire extinguisher: Gotta be ready the next time flames are out of control.
  • Season one of Friday Night Lights on DVD: Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose!
  • Suntan lotion: For those rare times when McConaughey isn't wearing a shirt.
  • A video camera: In case there's the urge to film a sex tape. We'll volunteer to hold act as the tripod, if need be.
  • Tomatoes: To throw at Chelsea Handler.

What do you think Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves were shopping for?
