Nick Bollea was released from the Pinellas County jail about 12:30 a.m. today, greeted by his sister, Brooke. Neither of his parents, Terry and Linda Bollea, was at the jail. Nick Bollea made no comment to reporters outside the jail. He wore a blue L.A .Dodgers cap, white shirt, dark pants and white shoes. He was unshaven. His lawyer walked with her arm over his shoulder. His sister Brooke threw her arms around him and they left in a black SUV. Bollea served 166 days for reckless driving. He pleaded no contest on May 9 in the Court Street crash that severely injured his passenger and friend, John Graziano. In her MySpace blog, Brooke discussed how excited she was about her brother's release: "i cant believe how long Ive gone without him. Not seeing him for 6 months has been really really hard. ... I just can't wait to see my Nicky! I'm gonna make him every kind of food you can imagine.'' She chastised people for questioning how this family thrusts itself into the spotlight: "Some people wish terrible terrible things on us and say the most nasty comments that I can't even repeat on here. ... It really hurts. "All I ask, is instead of making this harder, and putting evil things out there, you pray for John (Graziano) and for us, and leave words of inspiration. I know - like I know - like I know - John is gonna walk out of that hospital and things will be ok again. I know his strength and I know he can do it with our prayers.''

Guy wants Madge's cash

What would a day be without another update on Madonna's divorce from Guy Ritchie? According to the U.K.'s Sun, Guy has earned himself the nickname "Material Guy" because he's apparently intent on fleecing his soon-to-be ex-wife for every penny she's worth. Were it so easy. "I'm totally devastated that Guy's turned out to be such a gold-digger," Madge allegedly told a friend. "I thought we'd been on a spiritual journey together for the past 10 years - but obviously I was wrong. He's just after my money." How much money? Well, she doesn't specify, but this alleged source did hint that Madonna is upset Guy didn't learn anything on this supposed spiritual journey. "I've worked my a-- off for the last 30 years to get what I have, and now this gold digger wants to take it from me," Madonna said. "Kabbalah philosophy teaches that you don't take what you haven't earned. Well that's exactly what Guy is doing. He hasn't earned a penny of it, yet wants to take, take, take." It's at this point the Juice* has to doubt the veracity of this source. Who in his right mind would recount word for word what Madonna said to him, lest he incur her wrath?
