Everyone knows that a little thing like death couldn’t keep Anna Nicole Smith out of the news. Minute details of her death, the paternity case of her daughter Dannielynn and her net worth are like fried chicken to the media’s already clogged arteries. Still, a few recent stories have surfaced that are undeniably finger lickin’ good:

If Angelina Jolie‘s endless barrage of philanthropic endeavors makes you feel like your contribution to society is inadequate, don’t fret. While Ange does plenty of good, she isn’t perfect — this roundup of recent news stories shows that she can run the gamut from saint to sinner:
Desperate Housewives boy toy Jesse Metcalfe checked into rehab this week "to deal with alcohol issues," according to his rep. This follows an incident last week of reportedly strange behavior at Los Angeles’ Mondrian hotel…just like Britney Spears before she checked into rehab! Making matters weirder, Jesse was spotted Tuesday rocking blonde locks at a gym, which means his hair underwent a drastic change…again, just like Britney Spears before she checked into rehab! There’s no word yet on whether Jesse plans on drinking 24 cokes a day, buying out a wing of his undisclosed rehab center or pining for K-Fed during his treatment. [New York Post]

Just in case you had any doubt that Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll is the gnarled, conjoined twin of America’s Next Top Model, this week the girls get made over.
It’s time to get pretty, y’all.
Carmen Electra‘s publicist has shot down months-old reports that she and butch rocker Joan Jett are an item. It’s too bad, they look cute together in that heteronormative, you-know-damn-well-who-wears-the-leather-pants kinda way. Sucks!

Real’s elimination on this week’s I Love New York may have been the most shocking one yet. After the jump, Real talks to us about his passion for Arabian horses, what it was like to compete with his brother Chance and he reflects on breaking down in front of millions of viewers.
Britney Spears is now back where she belongs; or at least, she’s closer to the viewfinders of the papparazzi (really: same thing). She checked out of Promises Malibu Alcohol and Drug Rehab Treatment Facility on Tuesday after staying 27 days, which falls short of the facility’s typical treatment time (30 to 45 days). But considering Brit’s recent yo-yo rehabbing regimen, let’s be happy that she’s made it this far. Besides, if she really was drinking 24 cans of Coke a day, that amounted to 648 Cokes during her stay and 90,720 calories. So really, it was time to stop the madness.
The early-ish check-out actually was predicted weeks ago — word was that Brit would be out of Promises in time to attend today’s Hollywood birthday party for her ex, Kevin Federline. That won’t be happening, though — the party’s been canceled because of a reported lack of interest (imagine!). So Brit has one more night to rest before she starts painting the town pink again.
