Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Tuesday, Jan. 16 he said this:
Our roundup of celebrity and entertainment news begins with the bittersweet words, Naomi Campbell pleaded guilty today. The charge, misdemeanor assault. The perp confessed to bouncing a cell phone off the head of her maid, one Anna Scolavino. However, Campbell told the judge the assault was unintentional, because she did not intend to hit her maid.
Nevertheless, she must pay Miss Scolavino $363 dollars to cover the latter’s medical expenses, perform five days of community service as well, and attend a two day anger management program. Nothing about attending lessons from a baseball pitcher or a football quarterback.
Miss Campbell said in a statement that her guilty plea was the best way she knew how to say sorry to her maid. Although it is pretty widely known that most people prefer huge bags of cash.
A sadder court appearance ahead for Anna Nicole Smith: an official inquest in to the death of her son Daniel.

Smith originally went to the Bahamas seeking privacy.
