June 22nd, 2010 6:05pm EDT
Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie has been granted an extension to her probation because motherhood has prevented her from completing court-ordered alcohol education classes.

The socialite and fashion designer was taken into custody by California police in December, 2006 and charged with driving under the influence (DUI).

She was sentenced to four days behind bars in 2007 after confessing to using marijuana and powerful painkiller Vicodin, but served just 82 minutes of her jail term. She was also ordered to attend 38 alcohol education classes as part of her probation.

Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie looked fab at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City (left) last week. She has certainly improved with age, considering the stringy multi-color hair extensions and obnoxious blue heels she wore in 2003 at the Billboard Music Awards.

While many stars struggle to look good as they age, Nicole has managed to make the transition with grace. In fact, we think she looks much better. What do you think?

The adopted daughter of pop star Lionel Richie, Nicole entered the limelight when she signed on to appear with fellow heiress Paris Hilton in ...

Nicole Richie Considers Herself Married

March 14th, 2010 12:00pm EDT
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's wedding might be sooner than expected - the socialite-turned-jewellery designer is already calling the rocker her husband.

Appearing on late-night U.S. chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, Richie refused to correct the host when he kept referring to the Good Charlotte star as her husband.

When Kimmel quipped, "Thank you for being here on your husband's 31st birthday..." Richie smiled and responded, "I'm so excited to be spending it with you." The comedian later referred to Madden's twin brother Benji as her brother-in-law.

Benji Madden Explains Scrapped Good Charlotte Album

March 5th, 2010 9:08am EST
Benji Madden
Rocker Benji Madden scrapped Good Charlotte's latest project, insisting it lacked "the magic" of their previous albums.

The guitarist has revealed he dumped the band's follow-up to 2007's "Good Morning Revival", because he was unhappy with the way it sounded.

Madden admits he was worried about voicing his concerns to his bandmates but knew they had to start over from scratch.

He tells Kerrang! magazine, "(The) Good Charlotte vibe just wasn't there.

"On every record we've made there has always been a clear moment where I just felt like we had captured the magic. But this time around I ju...

Nicole Richie Is Afraid Her Kids Will Get Tattoos

Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie doesn't want her two children with tattooed rocker Joel Madden to follow in his footsteps - she's banning their kids from getting inked until they're 18.

The socialite and former reality TV star has small tattoos of her own while the Good Charlotte rocker's arms are fully inked.

And Richie admits she would be "heartbroken" if little Harlow, two, and Sparrow, five months, decided to take after their dad and tattoo themselves all over when they grow up - so she's set a strict age limit for the pair.

She says, "To be honest, I would be heartbroken, but what can I say? I ...

We were all introduced to the word acronym MILF from one of the first versions of American Pie and now everyone knows what it means, even my grandmother. In other words it means an attractive mother but it is different than a cougar, another term the kids are kicking around these days.

We will spare you the silly teenager terms but understand there are some smoking hot moms in Hollywood these days, as if being pregnant has become en vogue. Some of the top grossing models of all time are pregnant and even your favorite rock star is still looking good in her post baby body.

Happily Unmarried With Children: Stars Who Haven't Tied The Knot

July 14th, 2009 9:36am EDT
Unmarried celebrity couples
A National Center for Education Statistics Study found that 52% of nonmarital births in the United States are to couples who live together but aren't married. This growing fad seems especially prominent in Hollywood where it's trendy to have babies out of wedlock. Although Hollywood isn't the land of tradition, one has to wonder why these couples who live together and have children together choose not to get married.

Perhaps the couple intended to tie the knot when they accidentally got pregnant. Now the new parents are too busy with the baby that their wedding plans kept getting put off...

While celebrities seem to having twins left and right these days, not since the Nelson Twins have we seen so many twins on the music scene. Check out our list of the music twins that are having us do double takes.

1. Kaulitz Twins / Tokio Hotel

Eighteen year old twin rockers Tom and Bill Kaulitz are members of the band Tokio Hotel from Madgeberg, Germany, and they sport very unique looks in style that you wouldn't really know that they are identical twins just by looking. Tokio Hotel just released their debut title Scream in the U.S.

He was the guy who took the training wheels off our bikes, let us jump off the top of the fridge when Mom wasn't looking, and the one whose admiration and respect was hard earned and beyond gratifying.

For the lucky majority, Father's Day is an opportunity to express what we usually fail to: how much the guidance of a paternal figure has touched our lives for the better. But what of the unlucky few for whom the idea of Father's Day is a kick in the ribs? Which stars won't be buying a tie, power tools or steak dinner for the old man come June 15?

Hollywood Couples With A Short Shelf Life

Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz
Some Hollywood couplings make you go, "Huh?" Take Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer for example. When Jen was married to Brad Pitt - that was hot. When she was linked to Orlando Bloom - that was interesting. But her pairing with John Mayer is, if it is anything at all, is probably just a passing fancy.

It's a fact that many celebrities enjoy keeping their options open. They may date for a while, but often the relationships end in heartache. Take Justin Timberlake. He dated both Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz. He's now linked to Jessica Biel. But unlike many stars who get hitched...

Celebrity Marriages: What Makes Them Work (Or Not) & Why It May Be Better To Not Marry At All

March 20th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Eddie Murphy & Tracey Edmonds
Marriage is a sacred union between a loving couple until death do them part. Yet, in the Hollywood community it seems that most marriages end before the honeymoon does. Take Eddie Murphy, for example. He and Tracey Edmonds split this past January after just two weeks of (un)happily wedded bliss.

The probability of a celebrity marriage surviving is only 35 percent, according to For the most part, celebrity marriages do not have the fairy tale or "movie ending" fans hope they will. Rates of divorce may seem higher in Hollywood than they actually are due to the heavy public...

Okay, so Starpulse ran an article on February 21 titled "Guyliner: Hot Or Not? You Decide," but we left a number of big names off of that list-- enough, in fact, to make a second list of more men who publicly wear the dark penciling around their eyes.

Some find it sexy and attractive, while others find it downright disgraceful; but in either case there are plenty of guys doing it lately. While our first article may have taken a positive slant on the issue at hand, this writer is only creeped out by these men who are obviously more concerned with their image than anything else.
