After months of being estranged from his wife Khloe Kardashian amidst cheating scandals and a public drug addiction, Lamar Odom received somewhat good news in Van Nuys court on Monday. Odom settled his DUI case and evaded jail time after pleading no contest to the charge. Instead, he received three years probation for the one count of DUI.
In addition to probation, the judge ordered the troubled basketball player to complete a three month alcohol education class. The plea deal is also going to cost the former Clipper , literally.He is expected to pay penalties in the sum of $1,814, in addition to a $390 fine. Furthermore, after his August 30th arrest, Lamar, 34, subsequently lost his license for a year. A future court hearing will determine whether it will be reinstated.

When a world leader and advocate of peace passes away, the world obviously awaits with bated breath to see what Paris Hilton has to say on the matter. "RIP Nelson Mandela. Your 'I Have a Dream' speech was so inspiring. An amazing man," she "tweeted" after she learned of the passing of Nelson Mandela.
Clearly, Paris had confused the former South African president with the already dead, African-American civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr. and the tweet dominated internet headlines. However, Paris turned the tables on her critics when it was revealed the tweet was fake.
Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now. Same goes for all the blogs who ran with it.— Paris Hilton (@ParisHilton) December 5, 2013
The President of South Africa Joseph Zuma released a statement earlier today confirming the rumors that Nelson Mandela, peace activist and the first black president of South Africa, has passed away. He was 95 years old.

Said British Prime Minister David Cameron via Twitter: "A great light has gone out in the world. Nelson Mandela was a hero of our time. I've asked for the flag at [Number] 10 [Downing] to be flown at half mast."
Actress Amanda Bynes has completed inpatient treatment and is back living with her parents. She was first hospitalized in July and put on a 5150 psychiatric hold after starting a fire in a driveway and was then moved to a rehab facility for treatment.

Beyonce is known for always giving fans a good show. Even without an album attached to it, she has been able to sell out her current Mrs. Carter world tour because fans know they're in for a good time. However, there was not a dry eye in LA's Staples Center on Tuesday when the singer dedicated two songs to the actor, Paul Walker.
"I dedicate these songs to Paul Walker," she said to the audience before singing her rendition of "I Will Always Love You." She then performed the equally touching song, "Halo."
You couldn't help but to be moved.Celebrities like Zoe Saldana, and Julianne Hough gathered at Hyde Lounge for a VIP viewing party. Sources say "you could hear a pin drop" in the lounge when Beyonce sang the tribute to Paul.
The world was shocked and saddened when the news about Paul Walker's tragic death broke this past Saturday, November 30. Today, December 3, the L.A County Coroner's office released the cause of death in the fatal car crash, stating that the late actor, 40, who was in the passenger's seat of the car, died as a result of the combination of traumatic and thermal injuries, while the driver, Roger Rodas, died of numerous traumatic injuries.
What this tells us is that the impact of the crash alone is not what killed Walker, but rather, the mix of various horrors that took place is what ended the actor's short life.
Actress Maria Bello recently wrote an essay on The New York Times where she “came out” of the closet (sort of) and shared how she felt about her “modern family”. In her essay she told the story of how her son Jackson had asked her if she was in a romantic relationship with someone and she had to confess to him that, not only was she involved with someone, but that person also happened to be her close female friend Clare Munn. In the same essay she then went on to say how her relationship with Clare had evolved from friendship and how she views partnership.
