Barker, Bob — A Los Angeles judge threw out former “Barker’s Beauty” Deborah Curling’s lawsuit against Price is Right host Bob Barker, which claims she was forced to endure a “hostile work environment” including racist and anti-semitic jokes. Also alleged: that Barker proposed “Naked Plinko” with Curling on several occasions and asked her to guess whether the item in his pants was “going higher or lower.”

Kardashian, Kim — The reality star(?) blogged Monday that during the Emmy awards on Sunday night, she had a problem with her awards show gown when the “entire zipper ripped” en route to the ceremony. This would explain why thousands of people watching wondered why it appeared that Michael Chiklis and Paul Giamatti were crouching naked next to one another on the red carpet directly behind Kim Kardashian on Sunday night.

Lohan, Lindsay — The adorable, mischevious Freaky Friday ingenue has supposedly been linked to one of the prime suspects in the recent burglary of her home. Nick Prugo,18, is under suspicion of having ties to the burglary and has a prior arrest for cocaine possession. “This is all so silly,” laughed Lohan. “Of course I don’t know Nick Prugo. I mean, if I knew a cocaine-dealing burglar, don’t you think I’d be high on stolen cocaine right now?”

Wentz, Pete — Fall Out Boy lead singer Wentz, who has a young son Bronx Mowgli with Ashlee Simpson, reveals on his twitter page that he sometimes goes for hours without being able to sleep. Aww, Pete. Should be easy. After all, that’s not your baby crying, he’s just pantomiming along to a recording of a baby crying. Simply turn off the stereo.
