Theodora Richard, daughter of Rolling Stones bad boy Keith Richards and model Patti Hansen, was arraigned Tuesday after being arrested on suspicion of drug possession and allegedly using a graffiti marker to paint on the side of a New York City building.
The 25-year-old, who has modeled for Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger and French Connection, was spotted by police around 10:45 p.m. while allegedly writing "T [heart] A" on a building that houses a convent in an upscale part of SoHo, where she lives.
"I hope I don't get in trouble for this," she said to an officer, according to the Associated Press.
In addition to the paint marker and a small amount of marijuana, police said Richards was carrying narcotic pain relief pills that she did not have a prescription for.
She did not enter a plea at the arraignment and was released without bail. She is set to appear in court again April 21.
Her attorney Stacey Richman described Richards as "a polite, lovely woman."
Does this sound like a bad episode of "Gossip Girl" to anyone else?
Comedian and radio personality Steve Harvey is firing back against his ex-wife Mary Harvey, now that a Texas judge has temporarily lifted a gag order prohibiting him from speaking about the case.
The former Mary Shackelford, Harvey's second wife, took to YouTube last month to bash her ex-husband and give her version of the dissolution of their marriage in a three-video series.
The judge ordered her Monday to take down the videos and stop talking about the case. As of Tuesday, the videos had indeed been taken down from her YouTube account -- but they live on through others'.
Steve Harvey's rep Bobbie Edmonds said that the judge lifted the gag order per the comedian's request so that he could respond to his ex-wife's allegations that he was unfaithful, evicted her, took their son and left her penniless. A March 10 hearing will determine if Mary Harvey can be held in contempt of court for violating the injunction, according to Edmonds' statement.
Steve Harvey's ex-wife Mary Harvey has taken to YouTube to bash her marriage to the comedian and radio personality.
The former Mary Shackelford, Harvey's second wife, said she's speaking out now because she's being sued by her ex-husband in Texas, where he alleges that he was passed up to host an Oprah Winfrey-backed show because of her.
"When I try to move forward, I keep getting pulled back into a situation that I don’t want to be a part of," Mary Harvey said.
In what begins and ends like a plug for Shanae Hall's "Why Do I Have to Think Like a Man?" — which includes a "bonus chapter" responding to Steve Harvey's relationship book, "Straight Talk, No Chaser" — Mary spelled out her side of the story while sitting on a couch in a series of three videos that clocks in at more than 25 minutes total. The videos were posted Friday. The video above is the second in the series.
"The ex-wife is fully aware of the court's current orders and permanent injunctions which prohibit either party, their lawyers or representatives from discussing and releasing information on the Internet and to the media," Steve Harvey's lawyer, Bobbie Edmonds, said in a statement to People, adding that Harvey's camp would be taking legal action regarding the videos.
Mary Harvey detailed the birth of their son, Wynton, and her husband's alleged infidelity with Marjorie Bridges, whom he married in 2007. Mary talked about the first time she confronted Marjorie on the phone, and she also posted a detailed exchange between Marjorie and Steve in which they were talking about their sexual trysts.
"It kind of felt like I had been shattered to pieces," Mary Harvey said. "Even knowing what I knew, I was not at that point to cut my losses. I love my family, I worked for my family, my family was my support, my foundation. I wanted a family for my son, something I never had."
She recalled happy memories, like the day he her ex asked her out while she was working at a cosmetics counter, and bad memories, including their time living in their car and saving loose change to make it to a gig the next day.
"Steve and I literally came from nothing. I had worked hard, I had given it my all up to that point to help make him successful.
Mary accused Steve, the author of a couple of relationship books, of perjury when he told a judge that he built his life and career himself. The two were divorced in 2005.
"The not having closure part was really devastating, but on top of that he took my Wynton. He turned my son against me, had me evicted from our house. Thrown out. All the businesses, all the money, the cars, at a moment when I was down he manipulated everything against me."
Meanwhile, Steve and Marjorie are having a lovely time aboard the Disney Dream cruise ship.
Taylor Swift and her hair put on a slick performance Sunday at the American Music Awards, as the country pop star broke with her wavy trademark, sporting bangs and straight locks and winning favorite country female artist over Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood.
Not that we're saying this was any Adam Lambert-style performance -- but still, relatively speaking, the hair was a bit shocking.
Oh yeah, she sang her new ballad "Back to December" as well.

Randy and Evi Quaid failed to show in a Santa Barbara court Tuesday for arraignment on felony vandalism charges. A new arrest warrant was issued for Evi, whom the judge determined had no good reason to miss the hearing; one is on tap for Randy, effective Nov. 16, to allow him time to attend a Nov. 8 court date in Canada.
The Quaids' lawyer was granted an hour delay around 9:40 a.m. Tuesday, but it wasn't enough. The couple had posted $500,000 bail each to remain free after cruising to Canada and missing the original arraignment hearing on Oct. 18. Evi's half-million dollars is now forfeited.
Saying they feared for their lives, the two requested Canadian asylum Oct. 22 after they were arrested earlier in the week in Vancouver, B.C., on the original Santa Barbara warrants. Evi was revealed last Wednesday to qualify as a Canadian citizen, but Randy's status is under consideration.
Some experts have speculated that the Quaids may be suffering from folie a deux syndrome, also known as shared psychosis, in which two people who are closely related share the same delusion, ABC News reports.
Randy and Evi Quaid have maintained that they are in danger from "Hollywood star whackers,"
As of this second, Michael Lohanhas agreed to shut up about daughter Lindsay and ex-wife Dina. He put out a press release to that effect this week, swearing an end to media-whoring of all manner and class. Now he’s determined to be the penitent Mary Magdalene of fameballs. He totally pinky swears.
Here are some of the excerpts from his statement, without editing:
After serious thought and conversation last night, with someone who means alot to me. I am making this statement and fully intend on living by it. With all due respect to those who have both gotten on my nerves for reporting things that weren't true, ( as well as things that were),I want to make a public statement that I will not be commenting on ANYTHING relating to my daughter Lindsay, or ANYTHING my ex wife Dina, or any "sources" related to her, might say.
After all the things said and the incidents which have transpired, I realize that no matter how wrong or right I may have been, at the end of the day, I was wrong for offending my ex wife and my children. Because of the spotlight and scrutiny we have been under, as well as my own "pride", which has caused pain to my mother, (deceased father), brother, sisters and their sibling, I realize how my statements and actions have had a ripple effect on all of them.
And NO MATTER what accusations, lies or conjecture are disseminated to the public,about me, for the sake of the ones I love and with hope of creating peace, I WILL NOT respond, in ANY way, to what is said or done, to me.
So, is it us, or does papa Lohan look like the Situation had a baby with Cecil Turtle a little bit? We can discuss that now, right?

This just in from the Department of Yeah, Whatever, Blah Blah Blah: Heidi Montag officially told the court Thursday that she doesn't want to divorce Spencer Pratt anymore -- for now, at least.
Montag had the divorce filing dismissed without prejudice. That's the divorce request that came in the wake of her moving out and then filing for separation on her own, with the form possibly filled in using a crayon, No. 2 pencil or old eyeliner (alas, no hearts over the "i's") -- the one that worked to get the reality-TV twosome loads of publicity for Pratt's freaky beard and Montag's freaky bosom. Oh yeah, there was that sex-tape thing too.
In a "shocking" turn of events, the two were spotted canoodling recently in Costa Rica, purportedly as part of their sex-tape negotiations. Perhaps it was his touching personal apology that turned her heart?
So, yeah, they're still a match made in Hollywood.

Amanda Ware graciously thanked the judges and others after hearing rival Kelsey Martinovich named winner of the Aussie version of "America's Next Top Model" on Tuesday night. Then when the mistake was discovered -- think the giant magazine cover that showed up with Amanda splashed on it was any clue? -- she thanked them again. Then Martinovich, who'd already given an acceptance speech, went out of her way to console Murdoch, who appeared horrified by what had happened.
How many votes out there to get both of these ladies in the next cast of "Dancing With the Stars"? At least they'd likely look better than Michael Bolton if they had to crawl out of a doghouse.
To kick off her final season on network TV, Oprah Winfrey on Monday aimed to top, well, Oprah Winfrey in the over-the-top department, surprising members of her audience with a gift to rival her car giveaway six years ago: eight days and seven nights in Sydney, Australia.
The audience included what the show called some of its most loyal viewers. The trip, planned for December, will include the taping of two shows overseas, a first for "The Oprah Winfrey Show," which for 25 years has kept it domestic.
Also appearing on the season-opening show: John Travolta, in pilot garb; Don Johnson, making up for a 1986 snub; and Paul Simon, who surprised the hostess with a serenade.
