OUT OF THE DOGHOUSE
Snoop Dogg catches the action between L.A.'s two home teams, the Clippers and the Lakers, at the Staples Center on Thursday. Who to root for? Either way, the rapper comes out a winner: He recently copped a plea agreement that spared him jail time on guns and weapons charges.

Wrapped up in a color-coordinated doorag to match the rest of his monochromatic ensemble, April Fool's jokester Keith Richards is in high spirits Thursday after lunching at London's San Lorenzo restaurant.
