'Bling Ring' Member Cuts a Deal as Lifetime Premieres Movie Based on Their Saga

Originally posted 09/27/2011 09:00AM

Rachel Lee, the alleged second-in-command of the burglary cohort known as "The Bling Ring", struck a deal with prosecutors Friday and is expected to be sentenced to four years in prison, according to reports.

But a little free publicity can never hurt – Lee's court appearance coincides nicely with a Lifetime movie about the gang. The Bling Ring which stars rumored Vanessa Hudgens beau Austin Butler as one of the teens, and Jennifer Grey as mother of one of the criminals, premiered Monday night. None of the real-life burglars, who stole millions of dollars' worth of goods in 2008 and 2009 from the homes of several celebrities, including Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, are cooperating with the production.

Lee, 21, pleaded no contest to a single burglary charge related to a break-in at the home of Audrina Patridge in February 2009. Other charges against her will be dropped in exchange for the plea.

The wedding took place at Castello Orsini-Odescalchi, the castle where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes wed in 2006. The bride arrived to the nuptials in a white Rolls Royce and wore a gown by Vera Wang for the outdoor ceremony.

Originally posted 08/03/2011 06:25PM

Getting arrested is no laughing matter, but it seems a handful of celebrities didn't get that memo.

Samantha Ronson – who was detained Monday morning for allegedly driving under the influence – is the latest public figure to slap a smirk on her face while getting her mug shot taken.

Michelle Rodriguez, who was arrested on DUI charges in 2006, displayed a similar expression for her unfortunate photo op.

Who's that girl?

The model in an Old Navy ad with a striking resemblance to a particular reality starlet is Canadian-born entertainer Melissa Molinaro, who tells PEOPLE she's "really proud" of the commercial despite controversy around it.

"It was a great shoot and I was honored to be chosen from the auditions which included more than 500 other girls held in different cities," Molinaro, 29, says.

Considerably less enthusiastic is Kim Kardashian, who has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the clothing chain alleging it made unauthorized use of her name and likeness.
