New television series next summer crowns 'top hooker'
NEW YORK (AP) -- How far can reality television go? A new competition series will debut this summer called "Top Hooker."
Get your mind out of the gutter. It's on Animal Planet, and it's about fishing.
The network says the show will pit teams of expert fishers competing in odd challenges, like fishing with outlandish tools, catching fish blindfolded and netting fish with their mouth. It's all catch-and-release.
The series will run for eight episodes and be based in California fishing spots.
Lindsay Lohan appears in court on misdemeanors, trial delayed
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge has delayed Lindsay Lohan's trial on three misdemeanor counts filed after a June car crash.
Lohan appeared in court wearing a black dress and spoke only to confirm that she was changing her attorney.
Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner shook her head when she saw Lohan in her courtroom less than a year after warning the actress to stay out of trouble.
Sautner set a March 18 trial date and a March 1 hearing that Lohan is not required to attend.
Sautner previously sentenced Lohan to jail and house arrest in another case.
However, Sautner is retiring soon and another judge will hear the upcoming trial and any related motions.
Lohan has pleaded not guilty to lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing officers from performing their duties.
Country star Emmylou Harris charged with hit-and-run in LA
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles prosecutors have charged country star Emmylou Harris with misdemeanor hit-and-run related to an accident last year.
The Grammy-winning singer was charged Wednesday for failing to exchange information with a driver whose car she hit on a freeway on Oct. 1.
A criminal complaint filed in Beverly Hills did not contain additional details about the accident or how much damage occurred.
A publicist for the 65-year-old singer didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.
Harris has won a dozen Grammys for her solo work and collaborations with artists such as Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Alison Krauss and others.
Harris continues to tour and is scheduled to release an album of duets in late February.
