Perhaps the hiccups made her do it: We’ll never know. In 2007, Jennifer Mee made headlines when she suffered from uncontrollable hiccups. Over the weekend, Mee was arrested and charged with first degree murder. Mee has been charged in the shooting death of 22-year-old Shannon Griffin. According to police, Mee lured Griffin to a seedy part of St. Petersburg, FL (of course, Florida), where Lamont Newton and Laron Raiford robbed and killed him. She’s currently being held without bail in Pinellas County Jail.
Three years ago, Mee, now 19, suffered from an extended bout of hiccups — sometimes hiccuping more than 50 times in an minute. Her hiccups were cured after several weeks and in the media frenzy over her strange disorder she reconnected with her biological father. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

It was an honest mistake … Costa Rican jail smells like children’s tears. And soup. Delicious soup. Thanks to jail, I finally have something in common with Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and that Lohan chick!”
—Spencer Pratt tells TMZ and his Twitter followers that he was jailed for weapons possession in Costa Rica. We’re sure Gandhi and Mandela are happy to be in such esteemed company. Also, Spencer was apparently in Costa Rica to try to win back Heidi Montag, who is there finding a new plastic surgeon. Make it stop. [TMZ]

“I have sympathy for Dina Lohan right now. In fact, I feel bad for any parent whose child is in jail—it can be really tough. Those days when Paris was in jail were some of the most difficult of my life—it is hard for any parent to deal with. Unfortunately, if you do not follow the rules then this is what can happen—it’s part of the rules of our society. I think Lindsay will learn from this experience though. To be in a small cage like that by yourself certainly gives you time to think about things.”
—Kathy Hilton, aka mom of Paris, understands what Lindsay Lohan and her mom are going through, since Paris once occupied the cell next door to LiLo’s [Radar] Keep reading »
