But Wait, There's More: Nicole Richie Serves 82 Minutes in Jail

Lindsay Lohan wasn't the only starlet keeping the California judicial system busy today. Nicole Richie turned herself in to serve her four-day sentence this afternoon at 3:15 p.m. PT. Just 82 minutes later, Richie was released "based on her sentence and federal guidelines," said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Maribel Rizo. Richie was sentenced after pleading guilty to driving under the influence in December 2006. I'm going to go ahead and make a bold prediction that Richie won't be publishing a prison memoir....

Paris and Nicole, Together Again

Together again, BFF! (AP) Paris and Nicole are together again. After 18 months of successfully hating on each other (and simultaneously collaborating on making lots of money) the hatchet has been quietly buried courtesy of a steak dinner and a sleepover. "We are back!" the two said before driving away from Dan Tana's steakhouse Sunday night. Although it's still unclear why the feud started in the first place, the back-and-forth sniping between the "Simple Life" co-stars became a staple of tabloid pages and the blogosphere for the past year-and-a-half. Perhaps the tension between the two was no longer necessary since Paris now has a real rival in the form of Shanna Moakler, who she claimed punched her last week at a Hollywood night club. Or maybe the reconciliation was "encouraged" by the producers of their reality show, so they wouldn't have to go through the hassle of filming them...

Paris vs. Nicole, Again and Again

Sadly, they even compete for the best sultry over-the-left-shoulder pose. (Photos: Reuters/Getty Images) AOL, long recognized as a purveyor of quality Internet content, has a present for us. Two, in fact. Both Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are featured in two new debuts over at AOL Music: Nicole's in dad Lionel Richie's video for the new song "I Call It Love" and Paris' album, "Paris", is now available for free streaming in its entirety. Paris' New Tracks | Nicole's Video Debut What timing. It's as if the poor things are in their own velvet-roped circle of hell in which they are doomed to some kind of eternal competition for bad relationships, bad outfits, bad diets and bad press (not necessarily in that order). How do the girls stack up in what has become, yet again, a mano-a-mano contest? My grades are below (Scale of 1 - 10 with 10...

The Unsinkable 'Simple Life'

What kind of cruel trick are you playing on me? Is it that you're trying to slowly drive me insane and fill me with self-doubt? You know who you are and you know what I'm talking about. For those of you out there who are blameless, though, I'll explain: As reported yesterday, E! picked up "The Simple Life" for yet another season. Record ratings, they said. Feh. My initial nausea subsided quickly enough, but a lingering unease about this revelation continued to grow over the past 24 hours and I have only now figured out why. (I mean beyond the fact that this faked "reality" show features the dunderheaded exploits of two vacant rich kids who purport to hate each other ever existed in the first place.) Simpletons Richie and Hilton. (AP) When I wrote about Paris and Nicole and their inane little show last month, I had almost unanimous...

Forget Paris (And Nicole)

On Sunday, the new season of the Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie ditz-fest, "The Simple Life: Till Death Do Us Part" premiered on E! Not wanting to miss the season finale of "The Sopranos," I dutifully recorded it. I watched it last night. (AP/E! Networks) I loathe both Paris and Nicole and my threshold for watching them and actually having to listen to them talk is about four minutes. I somehow made it through about nine minutes of this show before deleting it from my DVR and gouging out my eyes. It was the equivalent of holding my breath underwater for nine minutes. In which case, eat my shorts David Blaine. The fact that Hilton and Richie are even still doing the show together -- despite a very public, long-running feud -- is suspect. Particularly since they don't address the source of the falling out. The only reference to their animosity is...
