A possible 'Munsters' return; 'Lone Star' goes to late night?; the Oscars, with even less diversity

Three pop culture-related stories on our radar this afternoon, including a possible time slot for the remaining "Lone Star" episodes and a look at a very Caucasian Oscar field: 1. 'The Munsters' is back (maybe): If you harbor sincere affection for both Eddie Munster and the sweetly wacky, defunct series "Pushing Daisies," here's some good news: Bryan Fuller, the man who created "Daises," is currently working on a "Munsters" reboot for NBC. Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly says the series has been described as, "'Modern Family' meets 'True Blood,'” and that Guillermo del Toro may be involved in some way. So just to recap, that would be a merger of the video above, with a little of this: A little of this: And a little of this: Okay, I'm in. [Entertainment Weekly]...

Paris Hilton's 'hot' lawsuit victory

After Paris Hilton sued Hallmark three years ago for printing a greeting card that used her likeness and the now utterly retro catchphrase "That's hot," the case has been settled.

A Lindsay Lohan arrest warrant and a Paris Hilton plea

Lindsay Lohan, headed back to court... (AP) ... while Paris Hilton is just leaving after copping a plea. (AP) Big celebrity crime news today that involves two of Celebritology's most usual suspects: Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. Let's start with the latest on Lohan. As expected, in light of her recent Twitter admission that she failed a court-mandated drug test, a bench warrant has been issued for Lindsay Lohan's arrest, TMZ reports. The warrant is issued but on hold until Friday at 8:30 a.m. PST, when Lohan is due back in court. Now on to Paris Hilton, who was in court earlier today, pleading guilty to drug possession and obstructing an officer in connection with her Las Vegas arrest last month....

Paris Hilton arrested on cocaine charges

A 2007 photo of Paris HIlton. (AP) Paris HIlton was arrested in Las Vegas overnight on charges of felony cocaine possession, the Associated Press is reporting. Hilton, 29, and her boyfriend, Cy Waits, were arrested on the Las Vegas Strip after, according to AP, police spotted what appeared to be a cloud of marijuana smoke wafting out of the Cadillac Escalade in which they were riding. Cocaine allegedly was found in Hilton's possession, although police did not say how much of the drug they discovered. Hilton was reportedly released from jail this morning; Waits remains in custody while awaiting a hearing on charges of driving under the influence....

Celebritology Weekend -- Updated: Marijuana charges against Paris Hilton dropped

Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this weekend: Paris Hilton, pre-World Cup detainment. (AP) Updated: Since this item was originally posted, charges of marijuana possession against Paris Hilton have been dropped. Her co-accused -- Jennifer Rovero, a former Playboy Playmate who reportedly now works for Hilton as a freelance photographer -- pleaded guilty to the charge. Hilton's publicist told CNN the incident was "a misunderstanding." Paris, detained: Hotel heiress and former reality show star Paris Hilton was taken into custody by South African authorities Friday on suspicion of marijuana possession. According to the Associated Press, Hilton was detained outside Nelson Mandela Bay stadium, after the World Cup match between Brazil and the Netherlands, where police allegedly discovered her with an unspecified amount of pot. She later made a brief appearance in court. It's not the first run-in with the law for Hilton, 29, who served 45 days in jail back...

Paris Hilton's Doggy Style

(Image courtesy fleurdepup.com) Remember Beyonce's Dereon Girls line -- the range of clothes that finally made it possible for pre-tween girls to look like tiny club skanks? Well, Paris Hilton took a similar idea and, instead of applying it to the age inappropriate, she's targeted a new untapped market: vapid fashion-obsessed dogs. Or, rather, vapid fashion-obsessed dog owners who have no qualms at all about forcing their pups into clothing. Her Paris Hilton for Little Lily line includes a Floral Hearts dress ($56), pajamas ($48) or a mini skirt ($52) that would probably make both dog and owner a prime target for zombie clowns or David Letterman (same diff). As in the human world, larger breeds seem to have been given short shrift -- size large only accommodates dogs weighing 15-20 pounds. But boy dogs can rest easy -- Hilton's collection includes a doggie necktie ($15.60). In other celeb...
