An L.A. County Superior Court judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Jan Adams, who didn't show up for a hearing today, reports TMZ.

Lori Ufondu sued Dr. Jan Adams and won a judgment of over $100,000 after he left a sponge inside her following surgery. Ufondu's lawyer says Dr. Adams hasn't paid.

Dr. Jan Adams was ordered to appear at 8:30 a.m. this morning in San Pedro, Calif., for a "judgment debtor" hearing, in order to establish where he had assets. The doctor didn't show, and the judge issued a warrant.

Dr. Jan Adams, who doesn't look or act shady whatsoever, operated on Kanye West's mother, Donda West, the day before she tragically passed away last week.

UPDATE: As of 2 p.m. PST, Dr. Jan Adams has surfaced walked into a Los Angeles County Courtroom to face one of his victims who sued him for malpractice and a botched surgery, TMZ is reporting live on the scene.

Dr. Adams was asked about the death of Kanye West's mom, and he said, "I can not comment appropriately until I receive the coroner's report." The "doctor" arrived, alone, in a black pinstriped suit and tie.

We will have more on the Jan Adams case as the story develops.

Meanwhile, colleagues, friends and family gathered Friday to celebrate the life of Donda West with music and tributes at a memorial service Friday at Chicago State University, where she was a faculty member for 24 years.

Fighting back tears, one good friend recalled that among other things, West was always "open and friendly with everyone. It didn't matter if you had a PHD, a bachelor's degree or no degree at all. She made everyone feel important."

Another friend read a poem in honor of Donda West about mothers, which included the lines: "How shall we celebrate mothers?/How shall we call them in the winter of their lives?/What melody will cure slow bones?/Who will bring them worriless late-years?/Who will thank them for hidden pains?"

A new website offering a rather hilarious, albeit controversial montage of actual Fox News footage â€" much of which features a (barely) censored Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Katie Rees and cohorts - is causing quite the online uproar.

Shortly after the website - FoxNewsPorn.com - was "dug" at Digg.com, it was removed and the account of the person who submitted it disabled.

Even though "Fox News Porn" is a satire lampooning content that aired on Fox News as presented, many sites are calling the video too hot for TV, or even the Web. Maybe it's the funky, porno-style beats playing in the background?

What do you think? Check out the video and talk to The Hollywood Gossip...

The hot, sexy, satirical "Fox News Porn" channel anoints Paris Hilton as a great American, while covering Spring Break and the Anna Nicole Smith case non-stop.

The creators of Fox News Porn lambast what it calls a hypocritical network that "moralizes against the decline of decency while simultaneously promoting it... satire and parody aside, we think this is extremely objectionable, misogynistic content. We still don't understand how FOX is allowed to call this 'news.'"

Love and happiness (and cut-off camo shorts) are in the air, folks. A week after quietly getting married in New York City, newlyweds Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery went out for sushi in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 15.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery: Celebrating their one-week anniversary!

The Grey's Anatomy star has been dating Chris Ivery, a music producer, for a long time. Both are Boston-area natives. They got engaged just as quietly on Pompeo's birthday almost exactly one year ago, then tied the knot last Friday on the eve of the actress' 38th birthday. N.Y. City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was their witness.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!

On the set of their UK reality TV show, Kate and Peter, one of many notable British babes with huge breasts, Katie Price (a.k.a. Jordan), grabs a fistful of her husband, Peter Andre. She's clearly got him by the balls in this marriage. Check it out...

Katie Price, Underwear

An opportunistic Katie Price grabs a handful of Peter Andre's package.

Wow. And here we thought Victoria and David Beckham were some low-class media whores from across the Atlantic. They've got nothin' on this pair.

Get it? Pair? Nevermind.

Just ask Vanessa Hudgens. Or the guys he hoops it up with.

A hot and sweaty Zac Efron spent another hour playing basketball with his pals in Los Angeles on Thursday, presumably brushing up on his mad b-ball skillz for his newest movie role in the upcoming film, Seventeen.

After his latest court session, the sexy 20-year-old High School Musical star was greeted with bunches of white roses, presented to him not by ladies (phew) but by shameless, brown-nosing peeps from celebrity news agencies.

The paparazzi said that the flowers were from his "fans in America" and "fans in Europe." Ever the gentleman, Zac Efron graciously accepted the gifts.

Zac Efron: Flower child and basketballer extraordinaire.

Readers may recall that last Friday's edition of The Hollywood Gossip Caption Contest centered on Zac's balling. Follow the link to play if you haven't already - time is running out! A new Caption Contest will be posted later this afternoon.

You'd think being able to see would be critical to one's ability to drive once the sun has gone down, but you'd also think a lot of things a certain train wreck wouldn't necessarily agree with. This picture of Britney Spears speaks for itself. 

Where the Heck Am I Right Now?

Britney Spears wears sunglasses in the dark as Sean Preston Federline sleeps, blissfully unaware of the mortal danger he faces every day of his life.

Hopefully Britney Spears did not hit anyone from any celebrity photo agencies at the time this picture was taken. We suggest she just let the court appointed monitor drive next time. Or Jayden James. He'd probably be better at driving.

As New York Magazine observes, hubris rarely bites people in the ass like you want it to. Karl Rove left the White House before being brought down, people still read Perez Hilton, and Donald Trump retains the power of speech.

But it looks like uber-agent Scott Boras, the egomaniac blowhard who thought he was bigger than the World Series, is finally getting thrown off his high horse.

Nose Picking By Alex Rodriguez

After all, Alex Rodriguez and Cynthia Rodriguez have crawled back to the Yankees' negotiating table â€" alone â€" just three weeks after A-Rod opted out of his deal with New York and left the city (and the rest of the country) cursing his name.

As Scott Boras has clearly fallen out of favor with the superstar, does that make wife Cynthia Rodriguez A-Rod's de facto agent now? That would be spectacular for all.

She was at the Yankees' meeting with A-Rod and is the biggest influence on him right now - it's obvious Cynthia Rodriguez wears the pants in this relationship.

Could she be the boss now? Unlike Boras, she's actually got balls (remember the F-Rod t-shirt). In any case, Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez, who recently announced they're expecting baby #2, are almost certainly going ink a new deal with New York soon, potentially giving us another decade of celebrity gossip fodder.

Awesome.

We first reported that beautiful American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee got engaged to actor beau Nick Cokas back on September 29. But this blissful piece of celebrity gossip was not widely confirmed until now.

Katharine McPhee, 23, recently has been showing off a ring from Nick Cokas, 42, reports People magazine. They have been dating for quite some time.

"Katharine is bubbling over with excitement for their upcoming wedding," a source close to the couple says. "She is all smiles when she talks about the planning. It sounds like everything is going very smoothly."

Nick Cokas: Lucky longtime Katharine McPhee boyfriend turned fiance.

The couple met in 2005 when they performed in a L.A. theater production of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Their union began as a friendship, McPhee said.

"He took me up to my San Francisco (American Idol) audition," McPhee said. That's when a relationship blossomed. "We totally fell in love," she said.

As for the 19-year age gap between Nick Cokas and herself, McPhee says it "was never a concern." They connect because "he just makes things really fun" and "we love business. We love going to meetings together and create things together."

Case in point: the two will join forces on an upcoming independent film titled The Last Caller. Katharine McPhee will star in the dark romantic comedy and Nick Cokas will reportedly be producing the work.

Katharine McPhee, whose debut CD came out earlier this year, is currently filming an Anna Faris comedy called I Know What Boys Like, as well.

We're happy for this seemingly nice couple, who have been together since way back before anyone knew who Kat McPhee was. Congratulations again to Nick Cokas - who likely gets to see Katharine McPhee in this position fairly often. Damn.

The stripper-model who first claimed she had racy snapshots of sexy boxer Oscar De La Hoya wearing lingerie - then quickly recanted her own tale on national TV - is now suing him for $100 million for smearing her reputation.

In the suit, filed this week in Manhattan Supreme Court, Milana Dravnel alleges that Oscar De La Hoya's management team coerced her into taking back her story - where she allegedly took racy drag photos of Oscar De La Hoya in fishnet stockings, and what appears to be ballerina outfit in a Philly hotel room.

Oscar De La Hoya made what turned out to be "false promises" based on Milana Dravnel recanting what she told the media, the lawsuit claims.

Milana Dravnel also claims she was the champ's mistress from January 2006 to May 2007, and that she was paid $70,000 by celebrity photo agency X17 for the pictures (see below), a price her lawyer says was "below market value."

Dravnel is suing the champ for "fraud, defamation, and infliction of emotional distress." There was no response from Oscar De La Hoya or his camp.

Lindsay Lohan was behind bars for 84 minutes Thursday, beating Nicole Richie's mark by two minutes and becoming the latest star to serve under a day for DUI.

Lohan turned herself in to the good ol' Los Angeles County women's detention center in Lynwood at 10:30 a.m. She was searched, fingerprinted and placed in a holding cell in the inmate reception area but got to keep her street clothes on.

That's a welcome change of pace for our girl.

Lohan was released quietly at 11:54 a.m. All in a day's work for LiLo! Her original sentence was reduced because she met certain criteria that took into account overcrowding at the lockup and the fact that her crime was nonviolent.

  • Lindsay Lohan Mug Shot: Reloaded!
  • Lindsay Lohan Mug Shot

A Lindsay Lohan mug shot breakdown: November 2007 (left, at yesterday's booking) and back in July 2007 (right, taken just after her second ridiculous DUI arrest).

Do celebrities like Lohan receive special treatment?

"Absolutely not," sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said adamantly. "This is what we do for most everybody in this position. In fact, 30 to 50 women are granted early releases from the facility every day."

Back in May, the train wreck was arrested after crashing her Mercedes into a tree in Beverly Hills. She was arrested in July again after the mother of Lindsay's former personal assistant called 911 to report her car being chased by an SUV. The chase ended in Santa Monica, where police arrested Lohan.

In both cases, Lindsay Lohan was found in possession of cocaine.

In August, she reached a plea on misdemeanor DUI and cocaine charges from the arrests. The judge sentenced her to four days in jail - the mandatory minimum for a second DUI offense - but gave her credit for 24 hours served. Lohan then elected to complete 10 days' community service instead of 48 hours in jail.

The total deal called for her to enter rehab (which she has done, and Riley Giles has subsequently entered her many times), spend one day in jail and her perform community service. Lohan had until January 18 to serve jail time.
