I Want Spring

--Nicole Richie's health troubles on the set of The Simple Life she was hospitalized for dehydration earlier this month are the result of hypoglycemia, her rep says. "In her ongoing effort to focus on her well-being, Nicole has recently been diagnosed with hypoglycemia" or low blood sugar, her spokesperson said. (I don't doubt that...but being anorexic doesn't help either).

--Paul McCartney and estranged wife Heather Mills are still friends and the former Beatle sent a bouquet of flowers to mark the former model's debut on reality TV show Dancing With The Stars. Despite media reports of a bitter battle between the pair - who split last year after four years of marriage - Mills insists relations between her and McCartney are amicable, and blames the rocker's lawyers for dragging out their divorce. She told talk show host Larry King on Tuesday night about McCartney's gift: "It was nice. There was a card that read, 'Dear Mummy, love Daddy and Beatrice.' (Hmmm...I wonder if it had anything to do with the fact that she accepted a $55M divorce settlement--MUCH less than what she was asking for).

--Woody Harrelson's father, Charles, died in prison last week. Charles Harrelson, 69, had been serving two life sentences in a maximum-security Colorado federal prison for the 1979 slaying of a federal judge. He was found unresponsive in his cell on March 15, Felicia Ponce, a Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman in Washington, told the Associated Press. Fremont County Coroner Dorothy Twellman said he probably died of a heart attack in his sleep. Harrelson was convicted in 1982 of the slaying of a federal judge in San Antonio, Texas, in what prosecutors described as a $250,000 contract murder. Harrelson maintained his innocence and appealed in 1998, but the conviction was upheld. The actor was just 7 when the elder Harrelson was first jailed, for killing a Texas businessman, the AP reports. He was in college when his father was convicted of the judge's assassination.

--Fox has picked up the action drama "Prison Break" for a third season. Details on the serialized drama's story line for next season are being kept under wraps, but it is understood that brothers Michael (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) -- who recently escaped to Panama with the FBI hot on their trail -- and many of their fellow fugitives would end up back behind bars, possibly in Panama. "It essentially will be a new chapter," creator/executive producer Paul Scheuring said. "It's going to return to the fundamental conceit, to the roots of what the show was about." (So pumped. It's such an awesome show!)

--Actress Vivica A. Fox was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence Tuesday night, according to the California Highway Patrol. Around 11 p.m., a patrol car noticed Fox's silver Cadillac SRX traveling on a Los Angeles freeway at about 80 mph in a 65-mph zone, says CHP spokesman Leland Tang. "Fox exhibited signs of alcohol intoxication," Tang says. "A field sobriety test was administered and she scored over 0.08" the California legal limit.

--One celeb gets out of rehab, another goes in. On the heels of Britney Spears' release from the Promises clinic, Hollywood hunk Jesse Metcalfe checked himself in to an undisclosed rehab center for alcohol abuse this week, a rep for the star confirmed. (Makes sense after I reported on this rampage at the Mondrian...)

--A few select critics have been awarded the opportunity to see the first few episodes of the final "Sopranos" season. One critic said, "There are only nine episodes, and the first two, while terrific in every sense, only foreshadow a little of what may come before the last shot is heard." (Ooooooh! I can't wait!!!!)

--Calvert DeForest, the white-haired, bespectacled nebbish who gained cult status as the oddball Larry "Bud" Melman on David Letterman's late night television shows, has died after a long illness. The Brooklyn-born DeForest, who was 85, died Monday at a hospital on Long Island, Letterman's "Late Show" announced Wednesday. He made dozens of appearances on Letterman's shows from 1982 through 2002, handling a variety of twisted duties: dueting with Sonny Bono on "I Got You, Babe," doing a Mary Tyler Moore impression during a visit to Minneapolis, handing out hot towels to arrivals at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

--What did celebrities do before Myspace?

--Tom Cruise is set to star in an untitled thriller based on an attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler at the height of World War II. (I wonder if he's actually playing Hitler. He's certainly the right height for the part. It doesn't matter. The best Hitler movie EVER is Downfall. Truly amazing. I'd recommend watching it if you haven't seen it. Am I right, Iceman?)

--Charlie Sheen is the newest moron to back the twisted theory that the United States government was behind the 9/11 terror attacks. Sheen, has agreed to narrate a new version of the loopy YouTube documentary "Loose Change," which claims that a corrupt faction within the federal government orchestrated the mass murder at the World Trade Center. Sources say Sheen - whose father, Martin Sheen, has been arrested 63 times protesting on behalf of various leftist causes - is in talks with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's Magnolia Pictures to distribute "Loose Change." Sheen has called for a new independent probe of the attack, telling Alex Jones' radio show: "It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 percent of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions." (What an effing idiot. Go bang another hooker, Charlie)

--Jay-Z pays off when he loses a bet. Four years ago, the rap czar gave Playboy editor Rob Tannenbaum 50-1 odds that he'd never, ever come out of retirement and snatched $20 out of Tannenbaum's hand. When Jay-Z ended his retirement with the recent release of "Kingdom Come," Tannenbaum figured he'd try to collect and called Jay-Z's assistant to remind him of the wager. Last week, a messenger delivered him 10 crisp $100 bills from Jay-Z's office. Tannenbaum told us, "Jay-Z is a man of his word. I just bought a plasma TV with the money, and the first thing I'm going to watch on it is a Jay-Z video." (That says a lot about a person. I've always liked him).


Random Thought of the Day: If you aren't listening to the music of Amy Winehouse, you really should be. Click here to hear a few of her tracks. She has an amazingly unique voice. Think of a modern-day Sarah Vaughn. A breath of fresh air from the crap on the radio right now.
