David Choe, the graffiti artist who made headlines for having an estimated $200 million in Facebook stock, spent the last week in New York, granting interviews to a lucky few media outlets. He snubbed the New York Times and Wall Street Journal but did agree to speak with Howard Stern, Barbara Walters for ABC's "Nightline," and the Taiwanese animated news service Next Media Animation. Interesting choices. Howard Stern offered to adopt Choe, after double checking that the artist still had the Facebook shares.

Looks like "America's Got Talent" is getting raunchy — Howard Stern will join the judges' table. The famed shock jock will replace CNN host Piers Morgan, alongside Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne. Shooting will start in February, and the talent contest will return in the summer to NBC's schedule, where it has typically sat atop the ratings. The producers — including Simon Cowell, who created the series — opened their bank vault to snag Stern, whose profile has dipped since he moved his radio program to satellite.

After highly publicized raids, dueling news conferences and a contentious two-month trial, prosecutors are asking that a psychiatrist and lawyer convicted in the drug trial surrounding the death of model Anna Nicole Smith be sentenced to probation and community service. Psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich and Smith's manager and companion, Howard K. Stern, had faced a maximum of three years and eight months in prison for their October convictions on charges of conspiring to obtain controlled substances by fraud and by providing false names.

How happy was Sirius XM Radio Inc. Chief Executive Mel Karmazin last week after his biggest star, Howard Stern, agreed to a new five-year contract with the satellite radio broadcaster? "From what I remember it was a good celebration," Karmazin said wryly. Getting Stern to stick around removed one of the big question marks facing Sirius XM. The company, which has weathered a difficult two years of financial uncertainty, needed to keep Stern not only for his listeners but also to signal to the financial community that its momentum is continuing.

Howard Stern, the self-described "king of all media," will continue his reign with Sirius XM Radio Inc. Ending speculation that he would take his show to the next frontier ? whatever that might be ? the radio personality said on his morning show Thursday that he had signed a new deal that would keep him with satellite radio broadcaster Sirius XM for five more years. Stern, who turns 57 next month, did not reveal details of the pact, but word that he was staying put was enough for investors to drive up Sirius XM stock about 20% in early-morning trading.

A Los Angeles County jury Thursday convicted Anna Nicole Smith's longtime companion and a psychiatrist of conspiring to provide powerful prescription drugs to the model for several years before her fatal overdose in 2007. The jury acquitted a third defendant ? one of Smith's doctors ? of all charges. The panel deliberated for more than two weeks before convicting Howard K. Stern and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich on two counts each of conspiring to obtain controlled substances by fraud and by providing false names.

Robert Schimmel, a critically acclaimed comedian who made audiences squirm and then laugh with X-rated explorations of sexuality and vulnerability usually drawn from his own life, has died. He was 60. Schimmel died Friday at a Phoenix hospice from injuries sustained in an Aug. 26 car accident, said his brother, Jeff Schimmel. He had suffered serious head and internal injuries whose treatment was complicated by liver disease.

More than 2 1/2 years after Anna Nicole Smith overdosed on a cocktail of powerful medications in a Florida hotel room, a judge Friday ordered two Los Angeles physicians and her boyfriend to stand trial for illegally providing her with prescription drugs. The ruling by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Robert J. Perry came after a 13-day preliminary hearing that saw the final years of the Playboy playmate's life chronicled through the testimony of witnesses, including a former lover and a bodyguard, and in hundreds of pages of records from pharmacies, doctors' offices and hospitals.

Anna Nicole Smith's boyfriend was urged to send her away for drug treatment but dismissed the advice, saying rehab "would kill her," the late model's onetime bodyguard testified Thursday. Smith overdosed on prescription medication months after a conversation recounted by bodyguard Maurice Brighthaupt at an ongoing preliminary hearing to determine whether prosecutors have sufficient evidence to try Howard K. Stern and two physicians for illegally furnishing the Playboy playmate with sedatives, opiates and other drugs.
