Former News International CEO Rebekah Brooks and ex-News of the World editor Andy Coulson are among eight journalists who will be charged with multiple counts of phone hacking related to the News Corp. tabloid hacking scandal. Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service announced the charges Tuesday. The phone calls of numerous high-profile political figures and celebrities — including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Sienna Miller, Jude Law and Paul McCartney — were allegedly intercepted by the journalists between October 2000 and August 2006.

A sex tape featuring Minka Kelly , aka Lyla Garrity of “Friday Night Lights,” is reportedly being shopped to interested bidders. TMZ reports that Kelly, now 32, may have been underage when she shot the video in 1998 with a former boyfriend, based on the fact that a Brandy album released 16 days before her 18th birthday is playing in the background. I still am not sure how that proves she was underage. But I am sure of this: Tim Riggins would not stand for this. (NY Daily News; TMZ)
