We haven't heard from The Sports Gal in awhile.

But the wife of ESPN columnist Bill Simmons couldn't possibly keep quiet in the wake of Jamie Lynn Spears getting knocked up. Here's her professional take on it:

Off with the Shorts

My favorite part of this fiasco is that Britney is going to be an aunt and possibly even the godmother. Somehow this is scarier than her being a mom.

At least moms can lose custody -- if you're an aunt, you're always an aunt and this means Brit will always be around during the holidays. "Uh-oh, hide the cigarettes, Aunt Britney just pulled into the driveway!"

Mischa Barton is actually not the worst example of drunk driving this week.

Jim Leyritz, a member of the New York Yankees championship teams in the 1990s, is being held at Broward County Jail in Florida, after being an arrest for DUI and vehicular homicide.

WPLG-TV and TMZ report that, according to police, Leyritz was driving a Ford SUV that crashed into another vehicle in downtown Fort Lauderdale early this morning.

The other car rolled, the female driver was ejected and she later died of injuries sustained in the crash. Jim Leyritz was booked at 4:30 AM on two charges of DUI and is being held on $11,000 bond.

For this staff writer of The Hollywood Gossip - along with numerous other baseball fans - Jim Leyritz is best known for twirling his bat after every pitch, as well as slamming the dramatic, game-tying, three-run home run against the Atlanta Braves in Game 4 of the 1996 World Series.

No amount of steroids can help him now.

Eddie Murphy may have riffed against marriage during his famous stand up routine Raw, but rumor now has it he's about to walk down the aisle for a second time.

A source told E! Online that Murphy and Tracey Edmonds have already arrived in Tahiti for the ceremony.

"It's a small, private affair," the insider said.

Last-minute preparations took place earlier this week, reportedly.

"The bridesmaid dresses are all custom from somewhere in Beverly Hills," the source added. "They just had their final fittings."

Edmonds herself hinted that a wedding would take place before 2008.

"I'll say it'll be before the end of the year," she told People magazine in October. "And someplace far away and fun."

Despite the Valerie Begue photo heard round the world, Miss France 2008 will get to keep her crown.

According to The Associated Press, the racy and sacrilegious pictures of Valerie Begue will not cost her the honor she earned in early December, even though pageant rules state the contestants must "never have posed or exhibited (themselves) in dubious outfits or poses, partially or totally nude."


Valerie Begue just likes the taste of evaporated milk. Tara Conner, for one, doesn't know what's wrong with that. Quite honestly, neither do we.

As a compromise, officials decided that Begue will remain Miss France, but won't be allowed to compete in Miss World or Miss Universe. The first-runner up will replace her in those pageants.

We highly doubt the legitimacy of this Star Magazine story, but it's simply too good / funny not to at least share with our celebrity gossip readers.

The latest whispers in the Jamie Lynn Spears pregnancy drama indicate that Jamie's on/off boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, is not the father of her baby.

Jamie Lynn and Britney Spears

Star claims that the underage "sperm donation" honors, so to speak, may in fact belong to someone she knows in a slightly more professional capacity.

Sources tell the magazine that an executive on 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears' Nickelodeon TV show, Zoey 101, is the real father.

The exec is believed, of course, to be much older than the teenage mother, and could face statutory rape charges if the rumors turn out to be true.

Casey Aldridge, at 18 and less than two years older than Jamie Lynn Spears, is off the hook from a legal standpoint if he is, in fact, the guy who put a baby in that.

Jamie Lynn Spears' alleged boyfriend has been keeping a low profile ever since the dramatic pregnancy news broke, and insiders believe there's a reason for that.

Star insists Casey Aldridge has been paid off to be the Spears family's fall guy while the identity of the real father of Jamie Lynn Spears' baby remains a mystery.

"The man many people close to the family suspect is the father, however, would face charges and very possibly prison time if he were to come forward and admit that he had sex with Jamie Lynn Spears," a Star source claims.

After her arrest early yesterday, Mischa Barton has been formally charged with misdemeanor DUI, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, according to Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy Sgt. John Hocking.

The skinny actress, 21, who was pulled over around 3 a.m., has been ordered to appear in Beverly Hills, Calif., Court for arraignment on February 28, 2008.

The cops spotted Mischa Barton straddling two lanes of traffic and failing to signal while making a turn. Barton was arrested after being stopped by police and failing a field sobriety test, and subsequently held in custody on $10,000 bail.

Police released Barton around 10:05 a.m. Thursday. Her mother picked her up in a black Mercedes and carried Mischa's paperwork. The former star of The OC left the station with arms crossed, and face covered with a scarf. She tried to lay down in the back of the car. She was given a police escort so nobody would follow her.

You heard it here first, yesterday afternoon, even though we weren't 100 percent sure it was more than celebrity gossip at the time - Jessica Alba is engaged!

The actress, 26, is set to marry longtime boyfriend Cash Warren.

Cash Warren Picture

"Yes, I can confirm that they are engaged," her rep confirmed.

Jessica Alba flashed a HUGE engagement ring during a December 26 outing in West Hollywood, leading celebrity news sites like this one to assume Cash had popped the question. Jessica is three months pregnant with their first child.

For a fella who dates - then knocks up, then gets engaged to - one of the hottest women on Earth, relatively little is known about Cash Warren. His IMDB page lists him as a graduate of Crossroads School in Santa Monica, Calif., and Yale University.

The Hollywood Gossip recently learned that he is a longtime friend of Baron Davis, who plays for the NBA's Golden State Warriors. Hence the Warriors #5 on his cap in the first photo below. He is also apparently pals with Steve Nash - the two-time NBA MVP! That's Jessica, Cash, Steve Nash and his wife, Alejandra below!

Who are you, Cash Warren, with your hot fiancee and odd NBA connections!?

In any case, Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, 28, had split up in July after more than two years together, only to reunite in August or September.

Although the engagement is so on, their wedding might have to wait until after Jessica Alba gives birth. The reason? An obvious one.

A source recently said, "She doesn't want to be pregnant in a dress!"

It's easy to forget - given the witness tampering / bribery / public meltdowns / jailhouse drug smuggling they've been involved in - that Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil were busted in Norway back in October for drug possession.

It seems so minor now, but word on the street has it that the six-time Grammy Award nominee has to drag her beehive all the way there to appear in court this February, after the court there ruled the case cannot be tried without her present.

Said a rep for Amy Winehouse: "The Gulating court (in Bergen) sent us a letter dated December 18, 2007, stating that ... this case cannot be tried in absentia."

Wino on Parade

Amy Winehouse is Norway bound! Not for a concert but for court!

Winehouse reportedly claims she was tricked by the Norwegian police into signing a confession. Man, those damn Norwegians can be so tricky if you aren't careful.

Now that she's not visiting Blake Fielder-Civil in jail for the time being, at least her schedule is wide open. On the flip side, the chances of Amy making it to February without being jailed or overdosing in the UK? Not necessarily a sure bet!

Chace Crawford is crazy about Carrie Underwood.

Apparently, so is the Dallas native's entire family.

"His whole family loves her," a friend of Chace Crawford and Carrie Underwood tells Us Weekly. "They are really perfect for each other."

How close are the adorable Idol / Gossip Girl duo of six months - who started dating in July but didn't go public until October, and are still pretty coy about it?

After the fourth season American Idol winner and Oklahoma native, 24, spent Thanksgiving with the Gossip Girl hottie, 22, at his parents' home in Texas, she joined his relatives on part of her Christmas vacation as well.

Beautiful Carrie Underwood

"They spent Christmas together and had a wonderful time," a source says. "His parents are fond of her and think she's extremely talented. And they certainly believe Carrie Crawford would be a great addition to the family!"

Carrie Underwood, meanwhile, has no regrets about her July split from Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys star who is now dating Jessica Simpson.

"She thanks her lucky stars she isn't with Tony anymore!" added the insider Us source. "She thinks it's a joke he's with Jessica Simpson and sees him as a player. Carrie and Chace call him 'the player' and Jessica 'the ditz.'"
