Buzz Briefs: Ed McMahon, Gwen Stefani


Ed McMahon Sells Home, Not To Trump

Ed McMahon is on the move.

A spokesman for the former "Tonight Show" sidekick says McMahon has agreed to a deal with a private buyer for his hilltop home.

McMahon spokesman Howard Bragman says the buyer isn't mogul Donald Trump, who had recently offered to buy McMahon's home and act as a landlord.

Bragman says McMahon will move out of the home, which is in the same exclusive neighborhood as Britney Spears, after the sale is complete.

McMahon was facing the prospect of the house being foreclosed on

"Wire" Actress Arrested On Minor Drug Charge

An actress who appeared on the HBO series "The Wire" has been arrested on minor drug charges.

Court records show Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, who played a killer of the same name on the television series, was charged after police went to her home in northeast Baltimore to pick her up for refusing to cooperate as a witness in a murder trial.

She was arrested Wednesday after police served a warrant that would allow them to detain her, if needed, until the Sept. 16 trial of Steven Lashley. Court documents say Pearson is accused of having two cigars containing suspected marijuana in a bedroom and loose plant material. She was charged with one count of drug possession.

Authorities say Pearson witnessed Lashley stab three men, killing one, during an argument in 2005.
