Dannielynn's rich, Pearlman's a snitch, Bai Ling's a ...



• An L.A. judge on Tuesday named 18-month-old Dannielynn Hope the sole heir of Anna Nicole Smith’s estate, setting up a trust with Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern in charge, the AP reports. That’s like putting two mako sharks in charge of a school of tuna.

• Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync mastermind Lou Pearlman has agreed to plead guilty in a Thursday hearing to laundering money and making false statements during a bankruptcy proceeding as part of a deal to help investigators in other cases, the AP says. He’ll still be forming his own boy band in prison, though.

Bai Ling has been charged with petty theft for allegedly taking a pack of batteries and two Star magazines from an LAX shop, avoiding a more serious misdemeanor, Reuters reports. She mistakenly thought she was famous enough to make it into Star (and yes, she’s obviously famous enough for The Juice*).
