MAKE NO BONES ABOUT IT: Keira Knightley denying that she suffers from anorexia, but revealing that her grandmother and great-grandmother both battled the eating disorder. She, on the other hand, is just really, really skinny. Get it straight.

AHOY! Johnny Depp telling reporters that the chances of Keith Richards appearing in the third Pirates of the Caribbean film are "very, very good." As long as the rocker doesn't suffer any freak accidents before production begins, that is.

SURVIVAL OF THE SICKEST: Brian Heidik, winner of Survivor: Thailand, arrested for allegedly hitting his wife and shooting a puppy with an arrow. Maybe he was hoping to get some camera time on Cops?

CURE FOR THE BLUES: Prosecutors deciding against pressing charges against Rush Limbaugh for the bottle of Viagra found in his suitcase that was prescribed in his doctor's name. We presume he's learned a valuable lesson about securing potentially embarrassing medications in his own name.

WELCOME TO THE CLUB: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences risking the wrath of Rob Schneider by once again neglecting to invite the Deuce Bigalow star to join. Among the 120 lucky invitees: Heath Ledger (but not Michelle Williams), Dakota Fanning and Joaquin Phoenix.

DIVORCE DETAILS: Hilary Swank telling Vanity Fair that her marriage to Chad Lowe ended in part because of a "substance-abuse" problem he's been battling for years, according to portions of the interview published by the New York Post.

EMOTIONAL MESS: Ashley Judd revealing to Glamour that she entered a 47-day treatment program at a Texas rehab center last February to seek help for issues including depression, isolation and codependent relationships, according to portions of the interview obtained by USA Today.

SHUTTERBUGGED: Britney Spears and Kevin Federline claiming to be "outraged and saddened" that photos of them with Sean Preston on a recent family vacation were supposedly stolen and then published by Us Weekly.

FREE WOMAN: Lil' Kim released from prison Monday in time to celebrate Independence Day with her friends and family.
