Bobby Brown has been released from jail after serving just nine hours of his 55 day sentence.
Brown turned himself in Wednesday shortly before 10 a.m. and was released at 6:58 p.m., according to jail records. He was released and put on electronic monitoring by Los Angeles County Probation, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office said. The R&B singer is required to wear an ankle bracelet.
Brown, 44, was sentenced last month to 55 days in jail and four years of summary probation for his most recent drunk driving arrest.
He is currently home with his family, a representative for the R&B star said in a statement to ABC News.
“Mr. Brown has accepted responsibility for what occurred last October 2012. Mr. Brown is pleased that the matter has been resolved and to be home with this wife and young son,” Brown’s attorney, Christopher Brown, said in a statement to ABC News.
Brown’s arrest Oct. 24 marked his second in a year. His first DUI arrest was in March 2012. He has long struggled with alcohol and drug abuse. He was also charged with a DUI in Florida in 1996.

TV Land is making history.  The women of the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” will reunite on television for the first time since the show’s  finale in 1977, the cable channel announced today, as Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, Georgia Engel  and Cloris Leachman  join  Betty White on an upcoming episode of “Hot in Cleveland.”
In the episode, Elka, played by Betty White, and  Mamie Sue, played by Georgia Engel, decide to get their old bowling team together after a falling out decades earlier. The team,  GLOB: the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling, works in all the “Mary Tyler Moore” women.
Harper’s recent announcement that she has terminal brain cancer should make her appearance especially poignant for her castmates — and viewers.
This will be the second  “Hot in Cleveland” visit for  Mary Tyler Moore:  Moore played White’s cell mate on an episode in season two.
“Shows like ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ which stars four women, would not be here today without ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show,’ and its incredible female-led cast,”  TV Land’s President Larry W. Jones said in a statement today. “Mary, Valerie, Cloris, Georgia and, of course, our Betty, were all pioneers for women in television.”
“Hot in Cleveland” returns for its fifth season on June 19.

Regina King on setting record straight with US Weekly and Bossip reporting of her break up with Cleo (The Huxtables)

From US Weekly (via Bossip):
The Huxtable is once again a single man. After over two years of dating, Malcolm-Jamal Warner has split with girlfriend Regina King, a source confirms to Us Weekly — and it wasn’t the most amicable of partings. “He said he wasn’t feeling it anymore,” the source adds, explaining that Warner, 42, asked King and her young son (with ex-husband Ian Alexander Jr.) to move out of the house they shared. “She’s still very brokenhearted,” says the insider of the Southland actress, 42.
Friends since the 1980s when both were child TV stars — Warner on The Cosby Show and King on 227 — the twosome only rarely opened up about their romance. “I believe the universe has a plan, and we probably wouldn’t have been ready years ago. We both had to do whatever we had to do to be ready for each other now,” Jerry Maguire actress King told Parade in January 2012.
Said Warner in an October 2011 interview with BET: “We like to protect what we have because it’s very special and very precious . . . But I will say that it’s a relationship that makes all the sense in the world.”
The couple shot down engagement rumors in early 2011. King divorced Ian Alexander Sr. after a decade of marriage back in 2007. Warner has never wed and has no children.
“Malcolm and I have a lot in common,” King told Essence in January 2011. “we’ve both been child actors and were also blessed to be raised by incredible mothers who instilled good values in us. Things are maturing nicely.”
