Randy and Evi Quaid jailed in connection with skipping out on $10,000 hotel bill

Quaids jailed

Once again Randy and Evi Quaid are in trouble with the law, ending up in a Santa Barbara, Calif., jail for missing several hearings on their felony charge for skipping out on a $10,000 hotel bill. Wait, they weren't in jail already? Superior Court Judge Frank Ochoa tossed the pair in the clink for being a bit rude about the whole thing: "They came to court this morning hoping that Judge Ochoa would forgive them for not showing up a couple weeks ago, but the judge said they showed disrespect by prior failures to appear and by flashing Randy's Golden Globe award in court the last time around," Santa Barbara District Attorney Arnie Tolks told People Monday. "They both apologized to the court, but the judge obviously didn't take it lightly." How heavy-handed was his honor? He set bail at $100,000 bail each, which both paid to leave the cooler after three hours. They've also since paid the tab at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, but they've still got a date in the courtroom. Next time, try the Motel 6.

Gwen's hubby cheated

Who else has a crumbling marriage being undermined by unfaithfulness? Let's say Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani. How do we know that? Because Courtney Love says she was sneaking some Gavin on the down low, and Gwen knew all about it. Love told Howard Stern she had a "vision of marrying Gavin Rossdale one time. … We were like, 'Let's go spend our rock star money!' " So Stern asked the obvious, whether this supposed eight-month affair was going on while Gavin was with Gwen. "Yes, she does know," Love said.

Damon's wife pregnant again

Finally, we get to write some good relationship news: Matt Damon's wife Luciana is pregnant with the couple's fourth child, Us reports. Technically, 11-year-old Alexia is from Luciana's previous marriage, but that's just splitting hairs. "Everyone is excited," his rep blandly tells the magazine. The 39-year-old actor and his 34-year-old wife also are parents to Isabella, 3, and Gia, 21 months. Let's hope Matty can get a boy this time. The couple has been married since 2005.
