Way to go, Scarlett!  The actress won a prize but is giving it to those in greater need.  She’ll be donating the one-year lease she won at Flamingo South Beach condominium to Miami Children’s Hospital.  The gift will benefit out-of-town patients and their families.  Originally, the prize consisted of a three-bedroom unit, but to accomodate more families, there will be three one-bedroom units available.

The prize was part of a Superbowl promotion held by Flamingo South Beach and Fortune International.

Birds of a feather crash together … sort of.  Mischa Barton reportedly had a minor accident while driving Nicole Richie’s car.  The actress had just dropped off Richie at a tanning salon before bumping into another  vehicle.  Mischa has apparently been under some emotional stress since her sister was admitted to rehab.

Chin up, Mischa!  We do wish your sister a healthy recovery.

As for Richie, it seems like her vehicle and she might be experiencing bad karma.  She was charged with DUI on Friday after a December 11 arrest for driving against traffic in a California highway.

What would you do if you were bored and Britney Spears on a Friday night? Shave of all your hair and get a tattoo? Well, that’s what the real Brit did, even though the owner of the San Fernando Valley salon begged her to reconsider. Spears reportedly grabbed an electric clipper and shaved her own head.

“I tried to talk her out of it. I said, ‘Are you sure you’re not having a bad day and tomorrow you’ll feel differently about it? Why don’t we wait a little bit?'” salon owner Esther Tognozzi said in an interview.
“She said ‘No, I absolutely want it shaved off now.’ Next thing I know, she grabbed the buzzer and she went to the back of my salon and she was shaving off her own hair,” Tognozzi said.

Spears then made an appearance at tattoo parlor Body and Soul in Sherman Oaks where she had a pair of red and pink lips inked on her wrist.

It has been reported that Britney checked into rehab at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads center in Antigua, in the Caribbean but checked herself back out a day later. The new hairdo and tattoo came the following day on her return to her Malibu home.

Jennifer sure nabbed herself a Scottish gentleman. Her beau, Ross McCall, opened car doors for her and held her hand as the cute couple strolled around Hollywood. Now, I am not one to start rumors, and last summer engagement rumors were squashed about the pair but they were both wearing rings on their engagement fingers. Maybe they just love jewelry?

DESCRIPTION OF INCIDENT:
On 02/15/07 at approximately 9:13 pm, officers of the Pembroke Pines Police Department responded to the listed store in reference to a disturbance. Upon arrival, contact was made with the victim who is the owner of Queen’s Beauty Supply. Ghoneim said that Marchand was using beauty products that were just purchased in the restroom of the store. Ghoneim asked her to leave as the store was closed. Marchand refused to leave and insulted the victim. She then threw hair glue at Ghoneim. While he called 911 for police assistance, Marchand spat on him hitting the belly area of his shirt.
Officers then made contact with Marchand who was still in the same shopping plaza a few stores away from Queen’s Beauty Supply.
As Marchand was being escorted by one of the police officers, she swatted the police officer’s hand away. Marchand then started to swing her arms and pull away from the officers on scene. After a brief struggle, Marchand was finally taken into custody.

There were no injuries to any of the involved parties.

Marchand was charged accordingly and transported to the Broward  County Jail.
