Michael Morris, the director of the TV series Smash, has been kicked out of the house by his wife after he was photographed kissing the show's star, Katharine McPhee. If their TV show was that good it would still be on the air.
JESSICA SIMPSON has supposedly told fiancé Eric Johnson that either they walk down the aisle or he just walks! Jessica was recently a bridesmaid for her close friend and publicist Lauren Auslander and that got her in the mood for her own wedding, which has been pushed back a couple of times by Jessica's pregnancies. After the ceremony, Jessica and Eric flew to the Italian isle of Capri without their kids and that's where she reportedly lowered the boom. It may have worked for Jessica as there have already been whispers of a May wedding.

We've heard plenty of stories about wives and girlfriends attacking their man's private areas. However, 34-year-old Jennifer Marie Vargas, who's a civilian at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, was arrested for nearly pulling off her 6-year-old son's genitals because she was angry with him. Vargas later told agents she cleaned the wound with alcohol and then tried to fix it with superglue. The boy is recovering and is now staying with his father and the FBI has charged Vargas with assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction resulting in serious bodily injury and she faces up to 10 years in prison.
Detroit's Andreana Seay was recently involved in a car accident in which she totaled the other vehicle before leaving the scene. Andreana most likely didn't want to hang around since the vehicle she hit was a police car. Or, it could've been the fact that she ran a red light before hitting the cop car, or that she was driving drunk or that she was driving on a suspended license, or that her driver's license had been suspended 12 times. In any case, police followed the trail of leaking fluid left by Andreana's car and quickly arrested her for the lucky 13th time.
