PASSAGES: Oprah Has Guardian Angel
BUSTED: Former "Eight Is Enough" child actor Adam Rich, now 34, was arrested early Wednesday after he drove onto a closed highway lane and nearly struck a California Highway Patrol car, authorities tell the Associated Press. Rich, who played Nicholas on the '70s series (and has been a patient of the Betty Ford Clinic for a substance-abuse problem), was booked for investigation of driving under the influence, says CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos.
NAMED: In a Yahoo! Auto online poll of 4,187 people, Nelly's "Hot in Herre" was voted the best driving song, scoring 20 percent of the votes. In second place: Eminem's "Without Me" (19 percent). Others selected included "Days Go By" by Dirty Vegas (the song featured in those ultra-slick Mitsubishi commercials) "Soak up the Sun," by Sheryl Crow, "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World and "Complicated" by Canadian teen rocker Avril Lavigne.
OFFERED: Mick Jagger's six-bedroom, six-bathroom home in the Caribbean (on the island of Mustique) is available for rent to vacationers, the Wall Street Journal reports. "The property is made up of six sleeping/living pavilions and a bath pavilion with sunken hot tub," says the paper. Fans of koi fish will not be disappointed, either. There's a pond stocked with them. There's also a staff of six and Jagger family pets are in residence. Weekly rental: $13,000-$16,000.
