One of the stranger stories of 2011 has come to a safer end than many had feared: country singer Mindy McCready and her five-year old son were found yesterday in Heber Springs, Arkansas.

The troubled artist - who is pregnant with twins - had openly refused this week to return five-year old Zander to the care of her mother in Florida, claiming she was set on protecting the child, even if it resulted in jail time.

But David Rahbany, the chief deputy U.S. Marshal in eastern Arkansas, tells CNN McCready and her son were discovered late last night, hiding in the closet of someone presumed to be Mindy's boyfriend.

"The child appeared to be in good condition when we found him," Rahbany said.

Zander is in the custody of the Arkansas Division of Children and Family Services and arrangements are being made to send him back to his maternal grandmother.

"We feel sorrow for Zander because he's traumatized, and for Mindy," the latter's mother and stepfather said in a statement. "We just hope she does the right thing from here on out and that this is a wake-up call for her."

Country singer Mindy McCready is "pushing her luck" by not following a judge's order to return her 5-year-old son to the care of her mother in Florida, her ex says.

Billy McKnight, the father of Zander, spoke out after McCready said she would not bring her son back from Tennessee, despite violating a custody arrangement.

McCready took the boy during a recent visit at her father's Florida home, and a judge signed an order Thursday ordering authorities to take the boy into custody.

A missing persons report was filed, and while McCready spoke with police to confirm she is not missing, it's not yet clear whether she could face criminal charges.

  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot: Reloaded!

"I'm doing all this to protect Zander, not stay out of trouble," McCready told the AP. "I don't think I should be in trouble for protecting my son in the first place."

McCready says she is in Tennessee and cannot travel because she's also pregnant with twins - and seven months along, making it impossible for her to return.

The judge's order means law enforcement anywhere can pick up the boy and bring him back to Florida. Billy McKnight told Today that he spoke with Zander.

"He did sound healthy. He wasn't crying or scared," he said. "I think she believes she has a case and doesn't realize that she's pushing her luck on this one."

Mindy McCready, who was allegedly missing with her son as recently as yesterday, has been found, alive and well ... and is pregnant with twins! Yikes!

The troubled singer set off alarms yesterday by not bringing her 5-year-old son, of whom she does not have legal custody, back home to her parents.

She ultimately cleared that up ... and then revealed via her rep that she is five months along. No other details, such as who the father is, are known.

McCready is in Nashville with the boy, who she took without permission, and will likely miss the deadline the court set (5 p.m. today) for her to return Zander.

A warrant may be issued for her the pregnant star's arrest if she doesn't show up at her parents' house with Zander in tow. But it looks like that won't happen.

Police confirmed that they were not treating McCready and her son Zander's absence as a missing persons case any longer and that the pair were safe.

So that's good at least. Congrats on the impending arrivals ... although we are a little scared based on her track record about her ability to handle it.

Police are searching for troubled singer Mindy McCready and her five-year-old son Zander, who both disappeared Tuesday night in Florida during an apparent dispute.

McCready, 36, doesn't have legal custody of the child but is allowed visitations. She was last seen after she picked up the boy from her dad's Cape Coral, Fla., house.

The star and the court system are apparently at odds, and a missing persons report has been filed. A judge has ordered Mindy to return Zander by 5 p.m. Thursday.

McCready's parents have legal custody of the boy.

Late Tuesday night McCready posted a Facebook message refuting this, saying, "My son is not missing" and that "police established that this afternoon via Skype."

"I have been fighting the Florida court system to protect my son, and bring him home," she writes to ... all the individuals who follow Mindy McCready on Facebook.

"Please, please do not worry."

McCready has been plagued by myriad personal problems in life, such as a drug overdose, suicide attempt(s), rehab and an underage affair with Roger Clemens.

The celebrity sex tape. It's become as common as a Lindsay Lohan trip to rehab.

As has been the case ever since Paris Hilton experimented with a camera and a dream, 2010 was yet another year filled with aspiring amateur porn stars, all of whom used the power of their genitalia to make headlines and increase bank accounts.

Below, we present the first-ever THG Sex Tape Awards, handed out to the real, the rumored and the downright disgusting...

Most Despicable: The year kicked off with a rumor that John Edwards actually filmed a sexual encounter with Rielle Hunter. We scoffed at first, but it was then proven true. Horribly, depressingly, incomprehensibly true.

Rielle Hunter, No Pants

Most Likely to Involve Roses, Drama: Bachelor castoff Rozlyn Papa was kicked off the show for fondling a producer. No surprise that she likes it in front of a camera.

Mindy McCready was hospitalized in Cape Coral, Fla., for a possible drug overdose earlier this morning, according to reports. Her condition is unknown.

The troubled country star's rep denied that she OD'd on drugs, but rather she just had a bad reaction to a painkiller, to which her mother "overreacted."

Brent Young, Mindy's rep, told TMZ she broke her toe two days ago and has been complaining about the pain and her mom gave her four Darvocet pills. 

Darvocet is a narcotic painkiller. Mindy told her mom that she wasn't feeling well, possibly from a bad reaction to Darvocet, and her mom called 911.

Young says McCready's mom may have been trying to make her custody argument stronger - they're fighting over Mindy's young son - by calling 911.

Mindy McCready during a rare, lucid moment ... by her standards.

Young says he just spoke with Mindy, saying, "She's totally coherent. She can't believe her mom did this." Mindy denies she is off the wagon, period.

Backing her up? Dr. Drew Pinsky. He says there is "no evidence of any relapse" and furthermore, that Darvocet was an appropriate med for her pain.

This is the first story we've done on Mindy in some time that didn't involve her getting arrested or naked, at least. Hospitalized is right up there, though.

Last year, the Mindy McCready sex tape came out. Before that, she was accused of leaking the Eric Dane nude tape and jailed for a probation violation.

What a mess.

When hilarious news of a Mindy McCready sex tape broke Monday, we had a good laugh and wondered how long it would be until she pretended to decry its XXX release.

3... 2... 1...

"We are not aware of the production or release of the alleged film that seems to have surfaced via various media reports," McCready's attorney, Adam Dread, said.

"We can confirm that any illegally-obtained property, and/or fabricated footage, and the release thereof, will be dealt with swiftly following proper legal procedure."

Got all that?

Mindy McCready Sex Tape

BASEBALL MISTRESS: That she was, though Roger Clemens is not involved in Mindy McCready's sex tape, making the title kind of misleading. Funny, but misleading.

We've been around the celebrity sex tape block long enough to know that the statement from McCready's lawyer was likely written with one or both of these goals:

  1. To act indignant and pretend the sex tape was "leaked"
  2. To get McCready in on the profits, a la Kim Kardashian

We find it unlikely Vivid would make it this far without obtaining legal waivers, but either way, you could say that she's playing hardball ... eh? Baseball Mistress?

Hello? Is this thing on? Never mind.

The long-awaited Mindy McCready sex tape (don't act like you weren't wondering about it) is on the verge of being released, and its premise is far from unfunny.

With Mindy McCready, Baseball Mistress, the troubled singer joins the ranks of sex tape purveyors like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Shauna Sand, and so on.

The funny thing about calling it Baseball Mistress - besides that Mindy McCready has a sex tape at all - is that it's a reference to her affair with Roger Clemens.

The steroid fiend and MLB legend is not featured on the tape, of course. Minor detail. Still, McCready donned baseball-themed garb for the cover, so ... yeah:

Mindy McCready Sex Tape

The affair that rocked baseball? The testimony that shocked Congress? Okay, those things apply to Roger Clemens. The raw sex that started it all? Not sure how that does.

We have to guess that Vivid Entertainment, which has set an April 19 release date for the Mindy McCready sex tape, will be hearing from Rog's lawyer Rusty Hardin.

Then again, he isn't mentioned by name, and who knows, maybe he already gave his consent in exchange for a cut of the profits. Dude's image kind of took a hit.

The video features McCready and a boyfriend named "Peter," and in addition to the feverish body slapping, McCready offers commentary about previous conquests.

Her bedpost notches include Alan Jackson, Dean Cain and, of course, Clemens. No mention of Kari Ann Peniche, whose Eric Dane tape Mindy's accused of stealing.

Troubled singer Mindy McCready is denying the allegations made by troubled beauty queen Kari Ann Peniche that she leaked the Eric Dane nude tape.

"I did not want to be dragged into this. I don't want to be part of this," McCready, who roomed with Peniche on Celebrity Rehab, told Access Hollywood.

"She is evil personified," McCready says of Kari Ann Peniche. "She is evil in human form. She will hurt anyone and everyone she can to make money."

Following the release of the Eric Dane tape last week, Peniche pointed fingers at McCready, who she says stole her laptop, which had the tape on it.

McCready says Peniche is a pathological liar. Who's telling the truth?

  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot
  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot: Take Three!
  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot: Reloaded!

People with three separate mug shots? Not the most trustworthy.

Lawyers for Eric Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart, and Kari Ann Peniche met to resolve the issue, and the tape was believed to have been given to Dane.

That is, until it was leaked a week ago. The LAPD is investigating the leak of the tape, as well as the alleged drug use that the stars partake in during it.

Kari Ann Peniche stands by her accusations, but then again, she is also accused of running a sex-for-hire ring, so her own credibility is shaky at best.

There's also this photo from the Eric Dane tape ...

Kari Ann Peniche Naked

Kari Ann Peniche did not have sex with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, the troubled former beauty queen, who believes their nude tape was stolen from her, says.

The alleged Eric Dane sex tape, featuring the drugged-up naked trio, contains absolutely no sex, and none occurred when the camera was off, Kari Ann said.

In a statement, Dane's lawyer went out of his way to distinguish between a sex tape and a naked video. Which is not to say the 12-minute tape isn't risque.

The three played dress up and the two naked women then lounged together in a bathtub as Eric filmed them, high as kites and musing about porn names.

It's weirder than it is hot.

As for how it was leaked, Kari Ann Peniche says the nude video was stored on the hard drive of her computer, but stolen by troubled country star Mindy McCready, her roommate after the two completed a stint on the TV show Celebrity Rehab.

Kari Ann Peniche says she got into an argument with McCready over money and the singer ganked her hard drive as a result. Peniche freaked about personal info on the hard drive getting out and filed a stolen property report with the LAPD.

Peniche was kicked off Celebrity Rehab for stealing from McCready, ironically.

The disappearance of her hard drive eventually led to a meeting of reps and lawyers for Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, Kari Ann and Mindy, in which Dane was granted rights to the video and everything was assumed to be resolved.

Until the Eric Dane tape surfaced on the Internet yesterday, that is.

There is another rumor going around that the nude tape surfaced as part of an official investigation into Kari Ann Peniche's alleged sex-for-hire business.

In any case, here are some photos of Kari Ann Peniche, the third wheel in what is definitely the weirdest celebrity threesome with a married couple ever:
