Jenna Jameson doesn't get naked; Mary Ann is a jailbird







It's so good that former porn star Jenna Jameson can take the moral high ground and pose for PETA. Here she unveils her new campaign to keep people from buying leather — by wearing pleather instead. Because wearing leather is very detrimental to society, you know. It's all part of her comeback, which apparently involves starring a straight-to-DVD movie with Robert Englund called Zombie Strippers. See the trailer for that gem at blogs.tampabay.com/juice.

Ledger's family squabbles

While we reported yesterday that Heath Ledger's daughter Matilda Rose and her mother, Michelle Williams, were not included in the actor's will, there's good and bad news to add to the story. The good news: Heath's parents and three sisters intend to help out, as they've said in the past. "Matilda is our absolute priority, and Michelle is an integral part of our family," Heath's father Kim said. "They will be taken care of and that's how Heath would want it to be." But the bad news comes via the U.K.'s Telegraph, which says the family is already having some fights over the money. It seems Kim's two brothers, Mike and Hadyn Ledger, have been yapping about the estate, with Hadyn spouting, "I have concerns about the distribution of funds." Never mind those two uncles haven't kept in touch with the rest of the fam for some time. "It is sad at this extremely difficult time in our lives, while we are grieving the loss of our beloved son that estranged family members publicly discuss matters they have not been privy to in the past or now," Kim said. "We hope for Matilda's sake they will remain dignified." We hope for decency's sake the entire family won't somehow use a 2-year-old as a pawn in a quest for cash.

In a bid to finally settle for us the decades-old question of Ginger or Mary Ann, TMZ reports former Gilligan's Island actress Dawn Wells (that's Mary Ann) was arrested after driving home from her birthday party with a bunch of Mary Jane. The 69-year-old was pulled over Oct. 18 by a Teton County (Idaho) sheriff for swerving and changing speeds on the highway, the AP says. Authorities found four roaches and two small cases to store the nickel. Wells blamed all that on hitchhikers. "I exited my patrol vehicle and immediately was able to smell a strong odor of burning marijuana," Deputy Joseph Gutierrez wrote in his report. "As I approached the vehicle I noticed all four window (sic) of the vehicle were lowered and the female driver was not wearing a jacket." A friend testified that he had used the car that day and left his stash, unbeknownst to Wells. Wells is currently serving six months of probation after pleading guilty to reckless driving, part of a plea deal that saw three other charges dropped. She was sentenced Feb. 29 to five days in jail and fined $410.50. No wonder the Professor favored her.

Star Jones getting divorced

What's Star Jones been up to lately, besides working on radio stations we can't tune into? Why, planning on a divorce from Al Reynolds, of course. That's if you believe the National Enquirer, which says the papers have already been sent, a claim her rep denies. "They hadn't been seeing eye to eye for months and had already spent a great deal of time apart," a source told the Enquirer. "Finally, Star decided it was over. She told Al at the end of January that he had 30 days to get his act together or 'get out.' " Everything apparently went south after a Baby Phat fashion show in New York on Feb. 1. She told him to get out and he allegedly moved back to Miami. "Star is planning to divorce Al," another source says. "I think Star felt Al had spent their marriage riding her success while she did all the heavy lifting. She resented it. Deep down, Star is a very old-fashioned woman who believes a man should support her emotionally, physically and financially. She now believes Al failed her." Stedman Graham better take note. But then, Star is no Oprah Winfrey.

Dempsey does some good

Patrick Dempsey may play a doctor on TV, but he also knows to put his money where his heart is. Grey's Anatomy's McDreamy was in Lewiston, Maine, on Monday to dedicate the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing at the Central Maine Medical Center, Portland's WCSH-TV reports. The center will help cancer patients and families get information and support, in addition to access to healing programs like massage therapy and yoga, the station said. The medical center is an important place for Dempsey, whose mother, Amanda, has been successfully treated for ovarian cancer there three times, and is a workplace for his sister, Mary. "I think that it's very important for anybody going through cancer treatment today is just to have a person there, so you're not being treated like a number and that's what we're trying to achieve," Dempsey said.

Students cause a ruckus

One of Kate Hudson's neighbors called 911 Tuesday after seeing a man with a rifle on the roof of Hudson's NYC home, TMZ reported. Police showed up and found that the rifle was unloaded, but arrested three men, one of whom was carrying a camera. The trio claimed to be shooting a film, not movie stars, and were only armed with a "prop gun" and a "little script," the site says. They are allegedly film students at NYU and weren't smart enough to think wandering the rooftops of Manhattan with a gun would cause any problems.



ICYMI: Madonna's done some drugs

While we were going to wait until March 22 to catch the rebroadcast of Monday night's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, we hear Madonna accepted her award by calling the audience a bunch of MFers and admitted to seeing publicist Liz Rosenberg "smoking a joint" when the two met and (gasp) dropping X with Sire Records' Michael Rosenblatt. "I jammed my demo tape into his hand, we both did a tab of ecstasy and then we danced the night away," she said. Shocking, truly, but not as shocking as Iggy Pop's fairly catchy renditions of Ray of Light and Burning Up. Catch video of Madge's lengthy acceptance speech at blogs.tampabay.com/juice.
