Scoop: Teen burglars targeted Lindsay, Paris

Now here’s a made-to-be-made-for-TV true-crime story. A sting operation has busted a burglary ring of wealthy teenagers who zeroed in on starlets including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Audrina Patridge.

The gang with good taste, led by a 19-year-old fashionista, allegedly looted luxury goods such as designer clothes, jewelry and purses from the glitterati (Orlando Bloom was also a target) over the course of a yearlong spree. Paris has already collected most of the almost $2 million in jewelry taken from her pad, after it was recovered by the LAPD.

And get this: The burglars used the Web not only to hunt down addresses, but to monitor when celebs wouldn’t be home based on their appearance schedules.

Adding to the you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up factor: One of the girls was bailed out by her “Playboy” model sister — who brought cameras for an upcoming E! reality show about them.

We can’t wait for the “Law & Order” episode based on this one! Maybe Lindsay can play herself — she needs the work.

Sweetin Life

Jodie Sweetin of “Full House” is opening up about her battles with drugs. The actress who played middle child Stephanie Tanner on the wholesome family sitcom recalls in her new memoir “UnSweetined” that things weren’t so rosy in real life.

After the series was canceled, Jodie says, she got hooked on drugs including cocaine, ecstasy and crystal meth — even snorting the latter at a 2004 film premiere for her former co-stars, the Olsen twins.

During her years of substance abuse, “I wanted to prove that I could get more trashed than anyone,” Jodie says, according to Us. “There were times I did so much coke, I’d be laying there, getting sick and thinking ‘I’m going to die.’ But I didn’t care.”

Picture Payout

Jude Law’s infant daughter Sophia is already a cover girl — she appears on the U.K.’s Hello this month with mom Samantha Burke.

Problem is, the actor isn’t too happy about his baby-mama selling the photos — to the tune of a reported $300,000.

“He wants to handle this as privately as possible, and Samantha is making a circus out of it,” a source told the New York Daily News.

We don’t think it was such a classy move on Samantha’s part to sell her baby’s photos … but on the other hand, we don’t feel all that sorry for Jude.
