THE OFFICE -- DUNDER MIFFLIN PAPER "FOLDS"
NEW YORK (AP) -- Dwight married Angela. Michael comes back as Dwight's best man. Pam and Jim leave Scranton, Pennsylvania for Austin, Texas -- and Creed Bratton is weird. OK, so you didn't need last night's finale to know about Creed, but the end of the NBC workplace comedy helped tie up those other loose ends. Last night's episode ends the show's 8-year-run. Michael Scott -- played by Steve Carell -- returned for the finale. He ends up subbing for Jim as Dwight's best man when he ties the knot with Angela. That gave viewers the another chance to hear one of the show's many enduring catch-phrases. When Dwight tells Michael he thought he'd never come -- to the wedding that is -- the predictable reply was: "that's what she said."
"The Office" first aired in 2005. It was based on the British comedy of the same name, which starred and was co-created by Ricky Gervais.

RANDY JACKSON BOWS OUT OF "AMERICAN IDOL"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- You wouldn't know it from all the behind-the-scenes talk that producers were trying to pry him from the judges' table. But "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest says if Randy Jackson wants back on the show, he'd be welcome. Last night marked the final appearance for Jackson -- who has been with the show since its first season. Jackson said it has been a blessing and privilege to be part of the show. He says he has been touched by the level of talent of the contestants on Idol -- and hopes that he has helped touch them in some way, too. Jackson says he's leaving "Idol" to focus on his record label and other business opportunities.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Reality show star Chad Johnson is in trouble with the law. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of former NFL wide receiver by a circuit judge in Broward County. The warrant for Johnson was issued May 7 -- for failing to report to his probation officer. All of this stems from the situation last fall when Johnson ended up in a scrap with his former wife, Evelyn Lozada. She claims he head-butted her during an argument. Johnson was arrested, she filed for divorce -- and he ended up without a football job. Johnson got a year of probation -- and now that he hasn't reported to his probation officer, the warrant has been issued for his arrest. Meanwhile, Lozada can be seen on the "Basketball Wives" TV show.
BEA ARTHUR TOPLESS PAINTING
NEW YORK (AP) -- How much would you pay for a topless painting of actress Bea Arthur? The answer: just shy of $2 million, if you go by the price paid at auction for the painting by John Currin. The auction was done by Christie's -- but it isn't saying who bought it. The painting was expected to fetch between $1.8 and $2.5 million. The painting was done in 1991 -- and depicts the late TV actress in the buff from the waist up. The auction house says the image was based on a photograph of the actress -- with her clothes on. Arthur won Emmy Awards for her work on "Maude" and "The Golden Girls." She died in 2009 at age 86.
SOAP STAR CHARGED WITH SELLING COCAINE OUT OF HIS HOME
AGOURA HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- A former member of the cast of "Days of Our Lives" is accused of being involved in some real-life drama of his own. Authorities in Los Angeles are accusing Dylan Michael Patton of selling cocaine out of his home in Agoura Hills, California. Sheriff's deputies arrested the actor after getting a warrant and searching his home earlier this week. He was charged with a single count of cocaine possession yesterday. Authorities aren't saying how much coke they seized -- but if convicted, Patton could get up to nine years in prison. Patton played Will Horton from February 2009 to January 2010 on the long-running daytime drama.
O.J. SIMPSON - WHOSE STUFF IS IT, REALLY?
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- O.J. Simpson claimed that when he took items from a pair of sports memorabilia dealers back in 2007, he was only taking what rightfully belonged to him. But an attorney representing the families of his ex-wife and her friend are claiming some of the stuff wasn't Simpson's at all. David Cook is a lawyer who has been trying to get Simpson to make good on the $33.5 million he's liable for in a civil judgment that found he was responsible for the deaths of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Cook claims Goldman's father still has still has ownership rights to nine "game" footballs, should they ever be sold.
