The Hollywood Gossip recently took you inside the new digs of Lindsay Lohan. It's time now for a bit of news on a celebrity mansion that you could own - for a paltry $2 million.

Less, actually. Rapper Snoop Dogg is asking $1.995 million for his eight-bedroom mansion, which was once featured on the MTV show Cribs.

Snoop Dogg on the Red Carpet

And the 'hood? No, the D-O-G-G isn't rollin' down the streets of the L-B-C. Well, not all the time. The house is in the quiet community of Claremont, Calif., 30 miles east of L.A.

"It's virtually brand new," said Geoff Hamill, the Prudential real estate broker handling the sale. "It's on a cul-de-sac. It's in a family area in a college town."

Sounds like the type of place you'd expect to find, say, Hilary Duff. Not Snoop.

The nearly one-acre Mediterranean estate, in the exclusive Blaisdell Ranch area of Claremont, has a pool, basketball court, home theater and recording studio.

The rare tip-off that Snoop Dogg owned the home is the pervasive odor of weed. Just kidding. We're talking about a sign in the entry: "Wipe Your Bloody Feet."

Snoop, 35, currently on probation on a weapons and drug conviction, bought the home, which has 5.5 baths, in 1994 when it was 3,700 square feet, but expanded it to 6,500.

Among other amenities are marble floors in the entry, a gourmet kitchen, high ceilings and dual master suites. Sounds like it'd be great for David and Victoria Beckham, who are in the market for a place.

All of it could be yours for $1.995M... so long as you're not a biatch. Suffice it to say that Snoop nemeses Suge Knight, Bill O'Reilly and Don Imus shouldn't even bother getting pre-approved for a mortgage.

We've talked already about how Snoop Dogg has it out for Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. The political pundit had better grow eyes in the back of his head... or at least know that he can "suck it," as far as the Doggfather is concerned.

Well, that was just the beginning of Snoop Dogg's entry into the political arena this week. He's back in the news yet again - and surprisingly, not because he got arrested or given a suspended sentence on felony charges.

Snoop lashed out to the media, jumping into the fray and dismissing recently-made comparisons between sexist hip hop lyrics and the recent sexist, racially-charged remarks made by Don Imus that got the jackass radio host axed:

"It's a completely different scenario," Dogg said. "Rappers are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We're talking about hos that's in the 'hood that ain't doing shit, that's trying to get a n!gga for his money." 

One can only assume he means Heather Mills. Either way, this Dogg isn't done. His the rant against Don Imus, who obnoxiously referred to the Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos" continues...

"These are two separate things. First of all, we ain't no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them moth%&f*%kers say we are in the same league as [Don Imus]. Kick him off the air forever."

The absurd thing here is that Snoop Dogg, for all his personal problems, criminal rap sheet and lack of eloquence, doesn't make awful points. Good riddance, Don.

This celebrity feud may not prove as long-lasting as the rift between Scott Storch and Timbland, nor does it involve possible sex tape rumors (such as the newfound Lauren Conrad-Heidi Montag spat). But it sure is entertaining.

Once again, Snoop Dogg pleaded no contest in a L.A. County Superior Court on two felonies related to 2006 arrests on gun and drug charges.

Snoop Dogg on the Red Carpet

And once again, Snoop Dogg was allowed to walk out of there a free man. As the TMZ photo shown here makes perfectly clear, he's pretty bored by the whole charade at this point.

The Doggfather has given a three-year suspended sentence. In other words, no jail time. The possible narc has also been sentenced to five years of formal probation and 800 hours of community service.

If you live in SoCal, look for Snoop in an orange jumpsuit picking up trash on the side of the road soon. Unless he finds a way to weasel out of that as well. Which is not a bad bet.

Snoop, who's been on tour with Diddy, was arrested on October 27 outside Bob Hope Airport in Burbank after police found a gun and marijuana in his car.

He was later arrested on November 28 near NBC Studios after an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." Police say they found the rapper in possession of cocaine, a firearm, a large amount of weed, and having a false compartment in his vehicle. Check out the Snoop Dogg mug shot that resulted from this.

None of this matters, of course, if you've got good enough lawyers. Just ask that "hypothetical murderer" O.J. Simpson, druggie Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty or the self-proclaimed King of Child Molestation Pop, Michael Jackson.

Jason Wahler, we hope you're taking notes. And getting kicked in the face.

He's no Jason Wahler.

Few could match the Laguna Beach graduate's skillz at being arrested - four states, four different incidents, and all in one calendar year.

Nevertheless, Snoop Dogg, a.k.a. Snoop Doggy Dogg, a.k.a. Tha Doggfather, a.k.a. Calvin Broadus, has a pretty long rap (har har) sheet of his own.

Snoop Dogg was charged Tuesday with felony gun and marijuana charges, the Los Angeles County District Attorney announced. The charges stem from his October 26 arrest at Burbank's airport after a handgun and marijuana were found in his car, police say.

The 35-year-old rapper faces up to four years in state prison if convicted. His arraignment was set for Wednesday.

Of course, he won't get that, because as Suge Knight says, he's a narc - and the man don't its their own informants.

But who knows. Police executing a search warrant at his suburban L.A. home in November allegedly discovered another gun. Because Snoop Dogg is a convicted felon from a 1990 cocaine bust, he is forbidden from possessing a gun for life.

His attorney, Donald Etra, tells People: "These are the charges that were fully expected, and they will be dealt with in court."

Well, that clears it all up.

The musician also has a case pending in Orange County - a felony charge of knowingly possessing a dangerous weapon. On September 27, Snoop tried to board a plane in Santa Ana, Calif., while carrying a 20-inch collapsible baton in a laptop computer bag, police say.

He faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

"Snoop's not guilty plea (in that case) says it all," Etra previously told People. "The item he's charged with was a movie prop, not a weapon. Snoop never intended it to be used as anything other than a prop."

This was the latest trouble for Snoop, who last month canceled his British tour with rapper Diddy after Snoop was denied a visa into the country.

There were rumors Snoop was arrested in Sweden and detained by police during said tour, but that turned out to be false. For once.

Wherever Snoop Dogg goes, controversy and possible arrests (or rumors of arrests later proven false) are sure to follow. Hey, so it goes when you're Snoop Dogg. This is especially true on the Doggfather's recent European tour with Diddy.

Not to worry, Snoop Dogg hasn't been thrown into the pound this time - but when he made an appearance on a Dutch TV recently, an interviewer asked the noted fan of weed and guns to touch upon the subject of Bill O'Reilly.

Snoop Dogg, Dane Cook

That's up there with Suge Knight on the list of Snoop's favorite topics. After all, the bombastic Fox News blowhard once ambushed Snoop's lawyer / backup singer / ho with accusations that Snoop was selling drugs.

Snoop, who is by all accounts a nice dude, was quick to dispense with all diplomacy in sharing his thoughts about Bill O'Reilly, including a request for O'Reilly to... let's say, perform a certain act, if he were so inclined. See below.

The party went on for Sean Combs Tuesday night.

But following the cancellation of his London concert with Snoop Dogg, the man better known as Diddy says it just isn't the same without his pal.

Doggy Dogg

"I am going through Snoop withdrawal right now. I miss him a lot," Diddy told People Tuesday at a party he threw at Paper in London.

Snoop and Diddy are currently on a European tour and had been expected to play five dates in Britain, but their One Love Peace Tour UK was unexpectedly sidelined.

Why? Snoop Dogg, who was arrested in London last year, was banned from the country.

Hey. These things happen when you're Snoop Dogg.

"We are going to get together in Dublin and we will be back here," Diddy said. "We are going to work everything out so that we can come back because I think we can have a positive impact."

Still, Diddy partied on without his friend, and helped Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas celebrate her 32nd birthday.

"I am 32. It is wonderful. I have had so many experiences so I am happy to be 32," said the singer, accompanied by boyfriend Josh Duhamel.

"You can't have a party on the same night that Diddy is having a party. You can't compete, so expect me to join it. He is a really good friend of mine. He throws the best parties."

He also throws a good left hook, we're told.

Diddy, who has some time to kill in London until his concerts in Dublin on Saturday and Sunday, said he has been hanging out with David and Victoria Beckham. On Monday night, he was spotted out dining with the pair.

"We're both at the top of our game. A lot of people BS us all the time, but we really just check on each other," Diddy said of David Beckham. "He is a real cat. A lot of people you meet, you know, they ain't really real."

Interestingly, that's what a lot of people have said about Posh's huge breasts.

Okay, so that story yesterday about Snoop Dogg getting arrested on drug charges in Sweden was bulls$h!t. Fo' shizzle.

But come on. The guy isn't running at 2:1 in our Jason Wahler jailbird sweepstakes for nothing. This Dogg practically has his own column in the local police blotter. When you hear Snoop gets nailed for drugs, one's first inclination is not to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Doggy Dogg

Nevertheless, we apologize to The Doggfather and his family for perpetuating what turned out to be a false rumor.

It turns out the 35-year-old was indeed questioned by Swedish authorities, but was later released.

Repeat: Unlike Pete Doherty, he was not jailed.

"Contrary to erroneous press reports, Snoop was not arrested in Sweden," a representative of the D-O-Double-G's confirms. "He was questioned and released with no charges filed."

Snoop's rep also says that the chronic-puffing star is excited to continue his successful co-headlining European tour with another star who's had some legal woes of late, Diddy.

All we need is Bobby Brown to join these two and we can start printing up the first batch of "Locked the F*%k Up: European Tour 2007" t-shirts.

On a trip to Sweden, Snoop Dogg was held by police on suspicion of using illegal narcotics but was released after questioning and drug tests, police said.

The artist was heading to a party after a concert in the Swedish capital when police stopped the car he was riding in around 1:30 a.m., said Matts Brannlund of the Stockholm police.

Snoop Dogg on the Red Carpet

He said Snoop Dogg and a female companion (no, it wasn't Mischa Barton) showed signs of drug use and were taken to a police station.

"He was deemed to be under the influence of narcotics," Brannlund said.

A small amount of narcotics also was found in the car, but Brannlund could not specify which kind, and he said it was unclear whether it belonged to Snoop Dogg.

Given his many recent drug arrests, there's a decent chance. Just saying.

"He underwent some tests that will now be sent away for analysis," said Brannlund. "In two to three weeks, we'll know if he was on something."

Snoop Dogg, who's becoming quite a pro at surrendering to police, was released but could face a fine if his drug test comes back positive, Brannlund said.

Sweden has some of the strictest laws in Europe, and even minor drug offenses are punished.

In the U.S., you can often beat the rap if you have a good lawyer or you're a narc.

In any event, the Doggfather, who performed with Diddy in Stockholm's Globe Arena Sunday, was the latest artist to get in trouble following a gig in Sweden.

Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty was fined in southern Sweden after traces of cocaine were found in his blood following a concert at the Hultsfred music festival in June 2006.

All of the above are considered leading contenders for The Hollywood Gossip's Jason Wahler sweepstakes, in which we tried to predict the next star to be given a jail sentence by handicapping the field.

It's unclear whether Snoop already won based on this incident. We're leaning towards no.

It's great to be Snoop Dogg.

Not only does he still live the good life despite getting arrested more times than we can count (a feat one-time pal Marion "Suge" Knight attributes to Snoop being a narc), but the party always seems to find the Doggfather.

Doggy Dogg

Here, Snoop Dogg checks out the eye-popping views at Bondi Beach while filming a new music video for MTV in Sydney on Tuesday. Forget work - the sightseeing in Australia was all this happy Dogg could ask for...

We're forced to censor them here, but those are some huge breasts being displayed for the man by a couple of Aussies. Fo' shizzle, indeed.

He may have been closer to naughty than nice this year, Santa, but we wouldn't mess with Snoop Dogg if we were you. Just bring the rapper whatever he wants.

You do not wanna be lumped in with Suge Knight on the Dogg's Christmas hit list. Trust us on that one.

Snoop Dogg on the Red Carpet

Of course, Santa himself has really been making the rounds recently.

We've seen him with a pissed off - and really thin - Nicole Richie. He's also hung out with Sienna Miller and Katharine McPhee.

Who knows where the ho, ho, ho train will stop next? And, no, for once we aren't talking about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.
