Justice has been served to those media whores called parents that pranked America with the balloon boy saga. The two stood in front of a judge today and he ordered that the mastermind behind it all Richard Heene, serve 30 days in the slammer starting January 10, 2010.
Don’t think that’s it for him either because once those days are completed he’ll serve an extra 60 days under “work release,” which means after he leaves work he’ll have to go back to the slammer; And he’ll be on probation for 4 years And serve 100 days of community service.

As the American Film Market throws open its doors Wednesday, there is a chasm in expectations between what sellers are looking for from a sale of a project to what buyers can and can't afford to pay.

While Olivia Wilde was making the media rounds last Friday, checking in on David Letterman the day after his extortion/infidelity clusterfrak and stopping by MTV News HQ for a chat, she was also getting ready to begin filming "The Next Three Days" in Pittsburgh.
Thankfully for everyone involved, our own Josh Horowitz had no embarrassing personal revelations to make during his time with Olivia, and the two ended up touching on her upcoming film role. Mind you, she didn't tell us much – or anything, really, beyond what has popped up in the trades over the past several months. But the 25-year-old "House" star was simply so lovely as she declared her preference for "playing it safe" when it came to plot details that it's hard for us to complain.
