What has more highlights, tanning cream and flashy outfits than a "Dancing with the Stars" contestant? Ryan Seacrest! Well, at least he used to. Ryan now looks like Mini Merv Griffin, all slicked out on shiny suits and white shirts. Oh yeah, he's also a mogul like Merv.
TMZ's Harvey Levin confronted Ryan on his radio show yesterday, asking why, why why? Ryan said, "Cause I think when I started on that show, I wasn't quite sure what you were supposed to look like on TV. And I thought, 'Well you got to do things to make yourself stand out on TV. "
The girl who played Hilary Duff's BFF on the hit show "Lizzie McGuire" pled guilty to possession of crystal meth last year -- but managed to keep the whole thing under wraps.
Lalaine Vergara Paras, who played Miranda Sanchez on the Disney Channel show, was popped back in July and charged with felony possession of methamphetamine. But before the plea there was lots of drama. Paras was a no-show for a court appearance and the judge issued a $50,000 bench warrant for her arrest -- but it was recalled when she showed up in February.
Paras pled guilty to the crystal meth charge, but her record will be expunged when she completes a drug-treatment program. She's enrolled in the Asian American Drug Abuse Program.
Calls to Lalaine's reps were not returned.

Paris Involved in Another Hit and Run
Paris and Benji turned a simple nightclub exit into a police matter last night after their car ran over a paparazzo's foot.
As the snappers swarmed PBandJ's ride, a loud yelping sound can be heard as Benj drove right over one photog's checkered shoe-covered foot outside Foxtail. After the rollover, Madden checked out the situation and took off. But just minutes ago, TMZ learned the treadmarked photog is currently dealing with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department over the incident. No word on whether Benji and Paris are even aware of that yet. Good morning, lovers!
