Actor-comedian Andy Dick lived up to his surname a couple nights ago and was arrested for sexual battery and possession of a controlled substance. According to some witnesses, Andy was drunk and pulled down the tank-top and bra of a 17 year-old girl. Lock him up.

The Dark Knight opens tonight at midnight and I know a lot of STAR listeners will be at the movies to check it out – including the winner of reserved seats Jodi Dietrich and her husband! As of Tuesday, The Dark Knight ranked 17th on Moviefone’s list of the top advance ticket sellers of all-time.

STAR Artist Natasha Bedingfield recently told us she and fellow STAR Artist John Mayer talked about writing some songs together. She also told me, “I love the way he writes. He’s one of the coolest people in the mainstream. He’s doing real music and not selling out.” Natasha has good taste in music collaborations. On her new CD she wrote a song with STAR Artist Maroon 5’s Adam Levine.

I love movie trailers. So…SO much. The first teaser trailer for the new Terminator movie, Terminator Salvation is out. Christian Bale stars as an older John Connor in the Arnold-free action flick. Watch the trailer here:

Is STAR Artist Mariah Carey in or out? I hear Mariah is being actively pursued by producers of Project Runway to be a guest judge on the season finale. If she agrees to be on, she’ll be following in the footsteps of Victoria Beckham, Debra Messing, as well as Natalie Portman and Brooke Shields who were on last night’s premiere.

Poison frontman Bret Michaels and VH1 have agreed on plans for a third season of his reality show Rock of Love. Rock of Love 3 will depart from the Los Angeles-based concept of the first two seasons as Michaels takes his potential love interests on a tour bus across America in early 2009. VH1 says fans can expect such challenges as "a BBQ cook-off beneath the World's Largest Thermometer." No premiere date has been set.

Sarah Jessica Parker has split from a long time friend – no, not husband Matthew Broderick, her famous beauty mark/mole. A friend of Sarah’s confirmed to me she had it removed from her chin.

Won’t this be a little awkward? Back in 1991 Julia Roberts left Kiefer Sutherland at the altar and took up with his friend, Jason Patric. Now we’ve heard that Julia may guest-star on Sutherland’s show, 24.
