Wanda Sykes says she's proud to be gay

LAS VEGAS - Comedian Wanda Sykes said the passage of a same-sex marriage ban in California has led to her be more outspoken about being gay.

'You know, I don't really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn't feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life,' Sykes told a crowd at a gay rights rally in Las Vegas on Saturday.

'Everybody that knows me personally they know I'm gay. But that's the way people should be able to live their lives,' she said.

Ex-'Bachelor' winner arrested for unruliness

DEL RIO, Texas - A former NFL cheerleader and winner of 'The Bachelor' is out of jail after being arrested in a southwest border-town bar for unruly behavior.

Mary Delgado, who accepted a televised proposal from professional bass fisherman Byron Velvick on 2004's 'The Bachelor,' was arrested in Del Rio after refusing to leave a local bar.

Delgado, 41, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest. She was released about an hour later.

Drugs cited in Locklear DUI charge

LOS ANGELES - Prosecutors in Santa Barbara have charged Heather Locklear with misdemeanor driving under the influence, citing prescription drugs.

The California Highway Patrol said the actress showed 'obvious impairment' when an officer noticed her car parked on a highway and blocking a lane in Montecito in September, but that alcohol was ruled out. She was tested for drugs at a police station and released.

Locklear, whose TV credits include 'Dynasty' and 'Melrose Place,' divorced from Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora last year and sought treatment for anxiety and depression in June.
