Just 4 days after Casey Anthony was released from jail ... her parents were kickin' it in the Bahamas ... and went swimming with dolphins -- and for once, there's hard evidence to back up the story.
George and Cindy Anthony went swimming at Dolphin Cay at the Atlantis resort on July 21 ... and spent all sorts of quality time smiling and making kissy faces with a dolphin named Hercules.
As for Casey ... we're told she was not part of the tropical vacation -- but as TMZ first reported, she did enjoy a Corona minutes after she was released from the pokey.
Life after a murder trial sure is relaxing.
Margera says he was racing his neighbor up a set of stairs ... and promised the guy he could have one of Bam's skateboards if he won -- but, "Somehow I wound up tumbling down the stairs."
Bam explains, "I tackled my neighbor and fell down the stairs horsing around. I’m still in the hospital."
Bam says he's still unsure about the extent of his injuries -- but he may have broken his arm and several ribs.
At first glance, the pics seem to back up reports the Chicago Bears QB was the one who did the dumping ... because why the hell would K-Cav put herself through the misery of a wedding shoot if she was contemplating breaking off the engagement???
On the other hand, why the hell would Jay Cutler let her go forward with a photo shoot in wedding gowns if he was gonna dump her ass a few days later ... unless he's just a mean person.
The bidding has gone crazy ... we're hearing the bidding for a Casey interview was over $1.5 million.
Now ABC News has just released a statement, saying it will no longer pay for photos and video in exchange for interviews.
The announcement comes days after TMZ published a story ... that Casey's lawyer, Jose Baez, was holed up in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, taking bids from NBC, ABC and CBS. As we reported, Baez was in the Hotel bar Thursday night, discussing strategy with famed lawyer Mark Geragos.
Our sources say all three networks were offering the same deal -- they would pay a fortune to license photos and video from Casey. Short story -- it's a dishonest way of saying they don't pay for interviews.
We're told NBC -- which paid for Baez' hotel room -- was leading the pack in the Casey bidding war, even though the Network denied it was offering any money for an interview -- which is technically correct.
In its statement, ABC says, "We can book just about anyone based on the strength of our journalism."
Sure they can.
Lohan rolled over to Hilton's beach pad for a small shindig with some of Paris' close friends ... including her sister Nicky, actress Emma Roberts and "Inception" star Lukas Haas.
One source at the party tells us, "Everyone was so surprised when Lindsay walked in and we thought they didn’t get along. But they immediately gave each other a big hug."
The gang kicked it on the beach, in Paris' hot tub and later had a mini dance party ... but not once did anyone see Lindsay take a sip of alcohol.
We're told Paris is "very excited" about rekindling her friendship with Lohan ... adding, "She LOVED seeing her again."
We don't know what her official answer is -- but based on her reaction, we can take a guess.
The proposal -- caught on camera for “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” -- airs tomorrow night at 10 on A&E. Gene and Shannon met 28 years ago ... and have two kids together.
Marvin's mom Diana Page tells us, "He’s a good son and not capable of this type of behavior. He was a good worker. He takes care of his family."
Diana adds, "He’s a good father, he’s compassionate, and he has a healthy relationship with Dorene" -- Marvin's girlfriend -- who was also arrested in connection with the brutal attack of Stow.
According to Diana, "[Marvin] and his father used to have opposing views regarding sports teams, and they used to tease each other, but it never, ever got heated."
Diana says she hasn’t heard from Marvin since the arrest on Thursday, but believes justice will prevail ... in his favor.
As we first reported, sources connected with Arnold told us ... although he signed his legal response, he never read it and therefore didn't know his lawyer moved to block Maria's bid to get spousal support and her attorney's fees paid by him.
But according to the new docs, Arnold is not asking the judge to block either of Maria's requests.
The misstep caused some problems last week -- especially since Maria was dealing with the serious injury of their son, Christopher, at the time she got slapped with Arnold's papers.
Katherine, La Toya, Jackie, Tito and Marlon all attended a press conference today to announce the show in Cardiff, Wales on October 8. Katherine said it would be a "world-class event."
But Jermaine and Randy don't see it that way -- releasing their own statement against the concert, saying, "We find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death ... We feel it is inappropriate to be involved with such an ill-timed event."
As of now, tickets go on sale August 4. The family has not announced who will be performing at the show.
Rome included this message with the video, "I recorded this tribute for Amy Winehouse after I heard the news of her passing. she is a huge inspiration to my music. We miss you Amy."
