Richards might roast
Besides just adopting new baby girl Eloise Joni, Denise Richards has another plan to get her name back in the gossip media: She just may join the Comedy Central cast to roast ex-husband Charlie Sheen. Between this and Jersey Shore's Snooki publishing a second book, the moon just may crash into the Earth. "Producers are dying to get her confirmed for the Charlie Sheen roast," a source near to the Sept. 19 event told Us. "It would be amazing television! She's interested. Denise has a terrific sense of humor." Yeah, like that time they fought over daughters Sam and Lola for like two years? That was hilarious! Or when he threatened to kill her for taking away his kids? Brilliant! Truly, this family is full of comic geniuses.

Hatch contests sentencing
We're going to ask you to dig way back in your reality TV memory well and recall Richard Hatch, the winner of the first-ever season of Survivor. You know, the one with all the tax problems. Well, he's in prison, and he's asking to have his sentence thrown out. Hatch filed a brief Thursday in the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, saying the court ignored lots of factors in his conviction for violating the terms of his supervised release by failing to file amended tax returns for 2000 and 2001, the AP reports. That's why he's serving nine months after being sentenced in March, but he adds the length of that term is three months longer than even the prosecution wanted.
Lopez, Anthony call it quits
With three failed marriages between them, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony finally seemed to find true love together when they married seven years ago. They had twin children — Emme and Max — went on tour together, did a movie together and even planned a music-based reality show. But on Friday, the pair announced they were no longer together. "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision," the couple said in a statement by Lopez's publicist. "We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time." The pair, both of Puerto Rican heritage, married in 2004.
