It was a longtime coming, but Eva Longoria has finally settled a lawsuit out of court which stemmed from a 2010 crash on Hollywood Blvd.
The former Desperate Housewives star was sued by Roman Gasparyan after their BMW's collided in the median lane.
Gasparyan blamed her and even went as far as to suggest that she may have been driving under the influence because her eyes were "red and bloodshot."
When the claim was first filed, Longoria's publicist was adamant that her client was not at fault and released a statement reading:
"According to the police report, the other driver was clearly at fault AND admitted to fault on the scene. Eva Longoria’s eyes were NOT red and bloodshot, there is absolutely no truth to this claim, and any indications that they were are completely untrue. Longoria made no sudden turns and did not violate any traffic violations or make any sudden lane changes. The other driver is trying to make a case where there is none. All charges are frivolous and would hold no barring in the court of law."
Guess she didn't want to risk being found guilty on the "frivolous" charges because she settled twelves days before going to trial.

Though the name has changed to Dolby, that golden theatre at Hollywood & Highland will remain Oscar's home for at least 21 more years. An arbitrary number… but yay!!
Academy president Tom Sherak is elated, saying:

Batman, Superman and other superheroes will be allowed to perform on Hollywood Blvd, thanks to approval from a federal judge.
Judge Dean Pregerson ruled against selective police enforcement of Hollywood Boulevard's costumed characters, who solicit tips in exchange for pictures with tourists, on Wednesday.
"I think if cops want to do their job correctly, go find a real criminal," said Michael Jackson impersonator Sean Vezina.
Reports of aggressive panhandling and fights had police cracking down on unlicensed street performers, which led about two dozen arrests for crimes that included blocking the sidewalk.
That is a little extreme.
"It is all fun and games as long as they are just standing there," said LAPD Sgt. Robert McDonald. "But in the past they have assaulted them when they have refused to give money."
There was another report of Batman getting drunk while celebrating his birthday, and a Shrek performer getting into a fight with a homeless man.
