Conrad Murray making plans

Dr. Conrad Murray is free! What now? Depending on the source, he may write a book, pitch a reality show or launch a singing career — all sound entertaining.

According to TMZ, the first place the man who popped the King of Pop went upon release from prison was In-N-Out Burger. Looking emaciated, he chomped away — possibly fantasizing about his book tour.

He penned the book — apparently about his time with Michael Jackson — in the lockup. “We're told a big chunk of the Jackson story casts blame on others,” says TMZ, “and justifies his conduct in the treatment that ultimately killed the singer.”

Ah, OK — so it's going to be a work of fiction.

QUICK TAKES

Netflix, which planned to end “House of Cards” after the second season, is reportedly considering extending the run.

Celebrity Halloween costume sightings: Paris Hilton as Miley Cyrus, Cindy Crawford and her hubby as Slash and Axl Rose, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi as Dorothy, and Neil Patrick Harris and his partner as Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

A customer at Gloria Estefan's Miami restaurant Bongos Cuban Café is suing the eatery for “disfigurement,” “mental pain and suffering” and “loss of the capacity to enjoy life” after she allegedly fell there.

Kenny Rogers has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
