Shia LaBeouf is young and stupid and proving it more often then I’d prefer. The star of the Transformers movies was arrested this weekend for suspicion of DUI after he was involved in a very serious accident. Shia was trying to turn left and struck another car, causing his car to flip twice. He was brought to the hospital where he had to have emergency surgery on his hand and knee and now he’ll miss a month of shooting the Transformers sequel. Everyone else involved with the accident was treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital. Shia should take a lead from his cinematic costars and transform into a responsible young man, as soon as possible. Here's Shia's truck post-accident:

So this past weekend I went to San Diego for 2 days to check out Comic-Con which is basically the ultimate nerd convention. Comic book companies, TV shows, movies and lots of celebrities come out to promote whatever they’re doing and give fans a chance to interact with them. I actually got to be backstage for my favorite show, The Office’s Q&A panel. Here's me meeting star Rainn Wilson:

And here I am with The Office's Executive Producer Greg Daniels:

STAR Artist David Cook has finally revealed the release date of his highly anticipated debut CD – November 19th. David tells me he’s got 7 songs ready at the moment. He says, "I just want the record to be both eclectic and cohesive, and have something to say. The music is rock, but there's going to be some interesting twists and turns.”

STAR Artist Colbie Caillat has been’ lovin’ her time with fellow STAR Artist John Mayer on their summer tour. She says his fans seem to know, love and appreciate her music. There’s also been a lot of attention on the tour since John’s girlfriend Jennifer Aniston has been spotted at some shows. Colbie and Jennifer actually look very similar, but luckily the paparazzi haven’t mistake one for the other. Check out a side-by-side comparison of Colbie and Jennifer:

Say it ain’t so! Miley Cyrus may be getting ready to say goodbye to Hannah Montana. Or at least she's thinking about it. Miley told me she feels the time may be right for her hit Disney Channel series to come to an end. "We’re thinking this is our last season.”

Don't think STAR Artist Madonna is outraged by her brother’s new book about her. Inside sources tell me Madonna actually ghost-wrote parts of it with him, making sure hers wasn't the reputation taking any hits. Madonna and Guy Ritchie are reportedly planning to renew their vows just so we know everything’s cool.

STAR Artist Taylor Swift recently got her high school diploma in the mail, but she's not headed straight to college like most 18-year-old girls. She'd like to continue her studies at some point, but Taylor says, "At this moment, gearing up for my second album, I'm not gonna take four years and walk away from something that I am so lucky to have." Who can blame her?

Some sneaky paparazzi, dressed in camouflage, managed to get onto the grounds of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's chateau in southern France, where they got into a fight with the couple's bodyguards. Halle Berry has some paparazzi issues of her own. She’s filed criminal charges against the photographers who snuck onto her private estate and took pictures of her holding her four month old daughter, Nahla.

Former Saved by the Bell actor and recent reality series regular Dustin Diamond is writing a tell-all book about the show. Diamond's ghost-written tome, "Behind the Bell", will detail "sexual escapades among cast members, drug use and hardcore partying." Diamond played the nerdy Screech on Saved by the Bell and its spin-offs. No word on when this masterpiece will hit store shelves.

Ryan Seacrest was bit by a shark over the weekend. Thankfully, the accident was nothing too serious. A baby shark tried to take a hunk out of the “American Idol” host’s foot. It even left a little tooth behind as a souvenir.

Break out the baby toys for Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell. Romijn is pregnant with twins, their rep confirms. The twins, due this winter, will be the first babies for the parents-to-be.

Fido, meet Yum-o. Rachael Ray is bringing her trademark brand of culinary perk to the pet world, launching a new line of premium dog food.

Bono will be the godfather of Brangelina’s twins, thus making them even more chosen.

A little less than two months after Kelsey Grammer suffered a heart attack in Hawaii, the veteran actor admitted himself into a New York hospital for an irregular heartbeat.
