No, not the kind of "heat" O.J. Simpson and his cronies bring.

We're talking high heat, as in baseball. Throwing out ceremonial first pitches at Los Angeles Dodgers games, to be precise!

Victoria Beckham Out in London

Here's Snoop Dogg readying to distribute some chin music ...

Snoop Dogg has rubbed off on his wife, apparently.

And we don't mean that in the semi-dirty way it was written.

The Doggfather's wife, Shante Broadus, was arrested at 12:15 this morning in Fullerton, Calif., for driving under the influence. Nice!

Here's a look at her attractive mug shot ...

Shante Broadus Mug Shot

The mug shot of Shante Broadus, wife of Snoop Dogg, a.k.a. Calvin Broadus.

Shortly after her DUI arrest and booking photo, Shante Broadus was released with a citation - there's no bail needed for DUIs in Fullerton.

Snoop and Shante are high school sweethearts and quasi-reality TV stars. They have three children. Wonder if Snoop is proud or disappointed to have his spouse join him in the illustrious celebrity mug shot club?

Kim Kardashian wasn't the only celebrity to appear at Wrestlemania XXIV last night.

The one and only Snoop Dogg chilled at ringside for the WWE Diva lumberjack tag team match during the event. (Please don't make us explain what that means; basically, women in scantily clad attire jumped on each other a lot inside the ring.)

Maria Kanellis Picture

After the team of Melina and Beth Phoenix defeated the team of Ashley Massaro and Maria Kanellis, Snoop sprung into action. As depicted below, he clotheslined Maria's ex-boyfriend, Santino Marella, earning the prize of the night for his efforts:

A kiss from Maria Kanellis.

Oh, Snoop. You're such a Dogg.

As previously reported, the natural pairing of One Life to Live and rapper Snoop Dogg is set to come true. We now have more details on the guest-starring stint:

The Dogg will make what is being billed as "an extended cameo" on One Life to Live on May 8 and 9. Not only will Snoop perform (at Ultra Violet) a pair of songs from his new album, Ego Trippin', but the two episodes will feature a Dogg-licked mix of show's theme song.

"I've been a fan of One Life to Live since I was a baby," said Snoop. "My momma always had it on the tube in the crib growing up. The opportunity to change up the theme song and give it some of my flavor will make the show the life of the party."

Really, who can argue with that?

Snoop Dogg has evolved into a pretty mellow dude, at least for the past 10 years or so since he stopped getting charged with murder and stuff like that.

But you can still rile this rappin' canine up pretty good.

Snoop Dogg, Dane Cook

Tha Doggfather recently slammed talk show goddess Oprah Winfrey after she branded him a misogynist. Winfrey named called the rap star a big offender in perpetuating negative images of women through hip-hop.

Snoop's beef? Oprah didn't invite him on her show to defend himself.

Dogg insists he would have welcomed the opportunity to explain himself on the show, as he doesn't believe her accusations were accurate.

"I don't like [Oprah Winfrey] no more. I really was offended, because I kind of like her," Snoop told Contact Music. "Liked her. I'm articulate, very intellectual. She didn't even get a chance to even know me."

Snoop, who recently renewed vows with wife Shante Broadus, insists any misogynistic ways he once had are behind him, as his new work "is for the women" and "(I want to) give the ladies something, because I've been so mean and so rude."

You know who could help these two put their feud behind them? Democratic Illinois Senator Barack Obama. The man is a uniter, not a divider.

You'd think Snoop Dogg and soap operas would go together like Britney Spears and a pair of pants.

Simon Cowell and sensitivity to the feelings of others.

Kim Kardashian and a training bra.

We could go on and on: Casey Aldridge and condoms! Jessica Simpson and an aversion to the spotlight! Zac Efron and a bad hair day!

But, hilarious quips aside, the point remains: Snoop Dogg doesn't appear to be the demographic targeted by daytime dramas such as One Life to Live. Nevertheless, the rapper is rumored to be recording a song for the soap.

This news actually isn't so shocking. Mary J. Blige and Timbaland have each appeared on the soap opera in the past. Moreover, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt would fit in well on All My Children.

Get it?!?

For once, a story about Snoop Dogg that doesn't involve the troubled music star being thrown into the pound. NOTE: By pound, we mean jail!

The rapper's marriage, which looked to be over when he filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking custody of their children, Corde, Cordell, and Cori, in 2004, got back on track with in the last couple of years.

Doggy Dogg

Now Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante Broadus, renewed their wedding vows to mark their 10th anniversary. The hip-hop star - real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr. - surprised his longtime spouse on January 12, 2008.

Snoop Dogg and his lovely wife Shante have tied the knot again.

The Dogg arranged a romantic ceremony attended by 200 guests to renew their nuptials at a ranch just outside Los Angeles. Dressed in a black tuxedo, Snoop exchanged vows with Shante Broadus / Dogg for the second time.

He reportedly presented her with a diamond ring to seal his commitment to their marriage. The couple wed in 1998 and have three children together - 13-year-old Corde, 10-year-old Cordell and seven-year-old Cori.

Of course, the romantic gesture was filmed as part of his reality TV show, Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, and will air on E! sometime next month.

Wow, 10 years? In Hollywood? Looks like Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack truly have a married couple to aspire to. We'd love to see that reality show.

In addition to the dangerous, hardened criminals such as Michael Vick and O.J. Simpson, we also cover news related to petty crooks such as Snoop Dogg.

But the Doggfather is "make music, not court appearances," his lawyer said after the rapper pleaded guilty to felony possession of a deadly weapon Thursday.

A somber-looking Snoop (real name Calvin Broadus), wearing a gray sweater and slacks, was given three years probation and 160 hours of community service, after the rapper was arrested last September trying to board a plane with a 20-inch collapsible baton in a computer bag.

These things happen when you're Snoop Dogg.

Snoop initially pleaded not guilty, saying the weapon was only a movie prop.

But "this was an expedient way to end the case," Snoop's attorney, Donald Etra, said.

However, Orange County, Calif., Judge Erick L. Larsh ruled that the rapper cannot serve those hours in any capacity "involving children, gangs or football (due to his existing involvement in his sons' sports league)."

Snoop Dogg, 35, who is giving Pete Doherty a run for his money in the race for most celebrity arrests in 2007, also agreed to make a $10,000 donation to Right Trak, an Orange County anti-gang program.

The rap (sheet) star narrowly avoided prison in April by pleading no contest in a Pasadena, Calif., court to gun possession and sale or transportation of marijuana. He was given five years probation in that case.

Wonder how Bill O'Reilly feels about this one.

Snoop Dogg has been refused entry into Australia because of his extensive criminal record, the immigration minister said Thursday, the second time this year the rapper has been barred from entering a country.

Snoop Dogg, Dane Cook

Snoop Dogg, real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr., was due to fly into Sydney this week to co-host the MTV Australia Video Music Awards.

But immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Snoop Dogg's visa was canceled because he failed to pass the country's character test, which takes one's criminal background into account.

"He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country," Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio.

The bloke now has 28 days to protest the decision.

Donald Etra, the rapper's Los Angeles-based lawyer, said he had not heard from his client about the visa cancellation and could not comment.

Earlier this month, Snoop Dogg was sentenced to five years' probation and 800 hours of community service after he pleaded no contest to felony gun and drug charges in California.

Snoop Dogg was convicted in 1990 of cocaine possession (see cute young Snoop mug shot) and charged with gun possession after a 1993 traffic stop.

In 1997, he pleaded guilty in exchange for three years' probation and a promise to make public service announcements against violence.

He was acquitted of a murder charge in 1996 after the death of an alleged gang member killed by gunfire from the vehicle in which Snoop Dogg was traveling.

During his last visit to Australia in February, Andrews said he overstayed his visa by two days and Snoop, who just posted his house for sale, was given an official warning.

In March, Snoop Dogg and fellow rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs were forced to scrap a tour of Britain after authorities denied Snoop a visa.

Britain's Home Office rules state that foreign citizens can be barred from entering the country if there are concerns about their presence.

There were rumors Snoop was arrested in Sweden during the tour as well, though those later turned out to be false (to the surprise of many).

In April 2006, Snoop Dogg and five other men were arrested on charges of violent disorder and starting a brawl, and spent the night in jail after trouble flared when some in the rapper's party were denied from British Airways' first-class lounge at Heathrow Airport.

Oh well. If the Doggfather is kept out of the land down under, at least he can smoke herb and play XBox while showing up late for PCD shows here in the United States.

This much is clear: If you motherf*%kaz want Snoop Dogg to play at an event, then motherf*%kaz best be prepared to pay up.

And not only does one have to cough up the appearance fee (a cool $150,000), one has to accommodate the Doggfather's, um, unusual tastes... and his enormous entourage.

Doggy Dogg

Snoop, who was recently given a suspended sentence for the latest in a long line of drug and gun arrests, apparently made quite a scene this week.

Organizers of Tuesday's PCD show at Cipriani Wall Street to benefit UNICEF, which also featured the rapper, had to fly in more than 10 members of his posse. First class.

Then, at the last minute, Snoop Dogg almost didn't go on because, "he insisted on having an Xbox in his dressing room," an insider said.

"We finally found someone who lent us their kids' Xbox, and had to put Snoop somewhere on the third floor because he was smoking so much weed."

Snoop and his pals were having such a good time, in fact, that they were an hour late making it to the stage, forcing the Pussycat Dolls - who were paid $300,000 to perform, interestingly - to actually talk.

That's never a good thing.

While introducing themselves, one of the blonde dolls thanked "Unicel" instead of "UNICEF." Come on. We know these Jessica Simpson-esque gals aren't paid for their brains, but they could do a little brushing up.

A rep for Snoop Dogg - who is open and candid about his love for the chronic, and his distaste for Bill O'Reilly and Don Imus - didn't return calls.
