Bai, Bai, Bai. If you’re gonna steal something, how about some decent outfits? The actress was caught pocketing two magazines and some batteries at an airport gift shop yesterday in Los Angeles. An employee of the store placed Ling under citizen’s arrest (bad ass!) until the cops arrived. Seriously, do not f*ck with those airport shop clerks – you don’t even wanna know what they’ll do if you try to steal a neck pillow. Bai was then taken by airport police and booked for her crime. She was described as “cooperative but crying.” There’s no word on what she was wearing, but we’re going to guess it was minimal and atrocious. Perhaps the fashion police would be better equipped to handle her case?
Bai has even blogged pics of her time in the airport. There’s no mention of the arrest, just pics of her sitting around and this small post, “Life is a sad song sometime but still sings the beauty for their loved ones……”

Is Katie Knocked Up Again?

Pete Doherty Plays B-Day Bash for $200
Apparently the birthday girl is a big fan of the f*ck up. Hopefully his strapped-for-cash show also served as alesson for the kids on why NOT to do drugs. [NYP]

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and last night’s two hour Hollywood Idol extravaganza was packed with swoon-worthy performances. Our 164 contestants competed for the adoration of the judges, but only 24 won their hearts in the fiercest Week One competition to date. These are the contestants whose serenades I’ve deemed deserving of chocolates and roses, as well as those who will be receiving one of those Super Mario Brothers pack of 40 cards that you give to everyone in your kindergarten class . . . even the nerds. Last but not least: a love connection for Paula. More after the jump.
Kim Kardashian‘s career keeps on chugging down the D List! Our favorite former friend of Paris (FFOP) has signed on as the new spokeswoman for Bongo jeans. OMG! In a recent press release, Kim gushed the following, “This is a fun, young, fresh campaign and I am honored to be a part of it. What I am excited about is how Bongo jeans fit. They hug my curves in all the right places!”
Translation: “Look at how awesome my ass looks in these jeans I want you to buy! Look at my ass! Buttbuttbuttbuttbutt!!!”
Don’t worry Kim, we are. More pics of the most stunning woman in the world below.
Congratulations are in order to our main man, Surreal Life star Gary Coleman, who was secretly married back in August to his 22-year old girlfriend of five months! Gary and his lady-friend, Shannon Price, barely knew each other, but that didn’t stop them from heading down to the Grand Canyon. It was the first marriage for both, and also the first time Gary had even been intimate with a woman. Sexxxy. The 40-year old former virgin said, “I never got the opportunity to be romantic or feel romantic with anyone…I wasn’t saving myself, she just happened to be the one.”
Say what?! Price insists that she doesn’t want to be known as a famous actor’s wife, and is working on solidifying her own career and name. “She’s a great eBay-er,” says her husband. “She’s a fabulous eBay-er. I hope she gets famous for that.”
But will their love last? The pair admits that they often go a week without speaking to each other because Gary has a tendency to get insanely angry and throw stuff at his wife. Yup, their relationship is that healthy, obvs. Mazel Tov! [InsideEdition]
Our friends over at Best Week Ever have beefed up Heidi Montag‘s mess of a music video for her song “Higher” with a little “bubble up video.” You know, tiny tidbits of info and hilarious quips that pop up while you watch the clip. Hmmm, that sounds familiar. Their version of The Hills star’s bikini-clad bomb actually makes the thing fun to watch, and we even made it to the end (for the first time)! Check it out above, and have a laugh at something other than just how stupid Heidi looks rolling around in the sand.
The writers’ strike is over and the Academy Awards are on. To prep for the broadcast, VH1 assembled a show of Oscar’s top moments — the remarkable, heart-warming and totally bizarre show-stealing-scenes from Awards past. See the clip above, for instance, wherein fashion-conscious South Park co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker dressed in drag for the 2000 Oscars. They were mocking Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez respectively, poking fun at the Academy’s self-serious mien, and they actually achieved a laugh-out-loud moment. Others on the list include Cuba Gooding Jr.’s over-the-top acceptance speech for Jerry Maguire, Angelina Jolie making out with her brother and the streaker in 1974 who bared all to billions around the globe. The show airs tomorrow night at 9 p.m., but in the meantime, check out this gallery of moments past. And get prepped: It’s almost Oscar-time.
VH1′s 20 Greatest Oscars Moments premieres tomorrow night at 9 p.m. (EST).
