The next Journey for White House party crashers MICHAELE AND TAREQ SALAHI will be to divorce court. After Michaele hooked up with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, Tareq changed the locks on their Virginia vineyard and filed divorce papers stating: "[Michaele] continually exposes our friends and acquaintances to her adulterous relationship and has flaunted the same throughout the community, the nation and indeed the world, and thus caused me to suffer great harm, humiliation and embarrassment." Schon is also likely to end up in divorce court because it turns out he just married 1986 Playboy Playmate Ava Fabian two months ago. Meanwhile, Tareq claims the cheating couple is harassing him with crank phone calls and that he was sent a picture of a penis, presumably Schon's.

Apparently inspired by the movie Weekend at Bernie's, Colorado's Robert Young and Mark Rubinson went partying with their friend Jeffrey Jarrett. Unfortunately, Jeffrey didn't have nearly as much fun as his pals, seeing as how he was dead. However, he was nice enough to pick up the tab for the evening as Robert and Mark stuffed his body in the trunk of an SUV and borrowed his credit card to pay their tabs at several bars and restaurants before ending the night in a strip club. Finally tired, at 4 a.m. Robert and Mark told the cops about Jeffrey and they were promptly arrested for abusing a corpse, identity theft and criminal impersonation.
