John Edwards’ mug shot has finally been released and it shows the one-time politician with a huge, creepy grin on his face. The former Senator and Vice Presidential nominee was indicted June 3 in North Carolina on six felony counts-- including conspiracy, illegal campaign contributions, and making false statements. The charges stem from Edwards allegedly funneling nearly $1 million to his then-mistress Rielle Hunter to keep their affair and love child a secret. The pic was obtained today by news agency Reuters through a Freedom of Information Act request. Edwards has pleaded not guilty and released a statement saying, “There is no question that I've done wrong, but I did not break the law, and I never, ever thought I was breaking the law.” His mug shot smile seems to indicate he believes he’ll beat the charges.

Joss Stone Murder Plot Thwarted

According to recent reports, two armed males have been arrested in an alleged plot to rob and murder British popper Joss Stone. Sky News is reporting that the men were stopped near her home in southwest England and were found with rope, a body bag, and swords in hand. Police Detective Inspector Steve Parker stated: "The two men in custody had in their possession information relating to an individual in the Cullompton area and items which lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offence." It’s also being reported that the pair were carrying maps and aerial photos of Stone's property. After the drama, Stone said that she was "absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal."

Crystal Harris Reveals Why She Couldn’t Marry Hugh Hefner

Source: Playboy Magazine

Hugh Hefner’s runaway bride has opened up about why she ditched Hefner just days before their wedding. Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM morning radio show today and told Seacrest, “For a while, I'd been having second thoughts about everything, so I haven't really been at peace with myself lately. It was all just happening too fast for me. I just sat back and thought about it all. Is this what I wanted? And it wasn't.” Harris’ last minute change of mind has meant she will appear on the July issue of Playboy magazine as Crystal Hefner. Oops! The cover shows a panty-less Harris dressed in Hef’s signature captain’s hat, red robe, and holding a pipe. The cover reads, “America's Princess: Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner.” Ouch! That’s sure to be a hurtful reminder to the Hef of what could’ve been. The magazine hits newsstands this Friday. [People]

Dallas Mavericks' Deshawn Stevenson Busted for Public Intoxication

Late last evening, Dallas Maverick DeShawn Stevenson was arrested by police for public intoxication at an apartment complex in Irving, Texas. Police say that Stevenson was alone and literally had no idea where he was at the time of his arrest. He eventually failed the sobriety tests administered by the officers. "Due to being intoxicated, he was a danger to himself and others, and therefore he was placed under arrest," Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz stated. This dude must’ve still been drunk from Sunday night's celebration. [ESPN]
