I Sure Hope the Kid Gets Howard's Brains

--Howard K. Stern, the lawyer for Anna Nicole Smith, said Tuesday that he's the "proud father" of her baby girl, who was born just days before her 20-year-old son Daniel died in the Bahamas. "We love each other and it's been going on for a very long time and because of my relationship as her lawyer, we felt it was best to keep everything hidden. And we've done a pretty good job of that." When King asked Stern if he planned to marry Smith, he replied, "I've loved her for quite some time and hopefully the feeling's mutual. At some point, we will. Right now we have to somehow get through what we're going through." (Everyone has suspected they were doin' it all along...)

--The founder of the company that produces the Girls Gone Wild videos of women appearing in sexual situations pleaded guilty Monday to charges of failing to document the ages of young women engaging in sexual acts in the videos. As part of the plea deal, Joe Francis, 33, agreed to pay a $500,000 fine.

--Katie Couric suddenly finds herself in an unfamiliar spot: No. 2 in the ratings. After a fortnight of viewership victories, Couric and the CBS Evening News ceded the top spot last week to its more common holder, NBC's Nightly News with Brian Williams, according to estimates released Monday by Nielsen Media Research. For the week, CBS averaged 7.7 million viewers, behind NBC's 8.2 million but ahead of ABC's 7.6 million for World News with Charles Gibson.

--Jennifer Aniston is coming to Broadway for one night only.

The event will benefit Working Playground, a non-profit arts program for New York City schoolchildren. Other celebs set to participate in the event include Rosie Perez, Lili Taylor and "SNL" comedienne Rachel Dratch.

--Paris Hilton has been charged with two misdemeanors – driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher. She is scheduled for arraignment Thursday at 8:30 a.m. in L.A., but is not required to attend the hearing. The maximum punishment for a first-time DUI is a $1,000 fine and/or six months in jail.

"I would really love to have Eminem on the show," the 65-year-old lifestyle guru said. "I don't think he knows that my demographic audience is so involved in Eminem music."

--Someone's messing with Keith Olbermann.

--For the second time this month, "Laguna Beach" star Jason Wahler has been arrested. The LAPD arrested Wahler on Friday at 5:30PM for misdemeanor battery and set his bail at $20,000. According to LAPD documents, he was released Saturday afternoon. According to police, Jason and a female companion, Kristen Deluca, were involved in an altercation with a Department of Transportation officer and a tow truck driver.
