Take this with a 17 carat grain of salt, but the NY Post is reporting that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are indeed engaged to be married. The ring, allegedly purchased by Nick, cost her man $2.5 million and was purchased at Jacob the jeweler. The massive rock is 17 carats and has a 10 carat stone surrounded by pink and purple diamonds (obviously – this is Mariah “Butterfly” Carey we’re talking about). No one even knew these two were together a month ago – including the happy couple. Maybe that means this marriage is meant to last? [NYPost]
Poor Paula. We told you she’s a little nutso. She got a bit confused giving notes on last night’s Idol and critiqued Jason Castro on two songs, even though he had only sung one. Awkward! Did Paula just have a little brain fart, or did she accidentally read notes that some had given her a little early? Either way, it’s a classically crazy Paula moment that you’ll want to watch over and over again.

Ummm, here are pics of Britney walking around a Bally’s gym in a towel. Maybe her dad’s not helping at all? [Seriously?OMG]
Roger Clemens and country singer Mindy McCready allegedly had a 10-year long affair that started when she was 15! Yee-haw? [NYDN]
OMG, Faith Evans‘ and The Notorious B.I.G‘s son Christopher looks so much like his big poppa. Adorable. [Concrete Loop]
Mario Lopez was dumped by his dancing girlfriend – think it’s karma for him cheating on his first wife? [I'm Not Obsessed]
Sooooooo that rock can’t really be from Nick Cannon… or could it? Nick himself didn’t deny the claim, and got a bit awkward when asked about the bling buzz yesterday. “I can’t even know what to say,” Nick stammered to MTV News. “She’s probably the most festive, remarkable person I’ve ever met.”
That’s not a denial! We were a bit skeptical about Nick possibly giving Mimi a giant rock, so we decided to examine the engagement ring he gave to his ex-fiancee Selita Ebanks after proposing in Times Square. We made quite a discovery! The rings are not only both huge, they look remarkably alike. If Mariah’s ring is from Nick, it’s obvious what kind of rocks he likes to buy his ladies!
Every week we re-cap Monday night’s Hills episodes with a series of haiku poems about the shows. Short skirts, shorter poems – Audrina approved! Add your own masterpieces in the comments section below, after you glance at the glorious girl party on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone. Think they hated having to be in the same room?
Oh Stephanie Pratt
We’d be so loyal to you
If not for your bangs.
When your man is making out with someone who’s standing mere inches away from you, it’s best to think happy thoughts and pretend it isn’t happening.
Since these two sisters love to battle it out, why not apply the fighting frenzy to their outfits? Both Kim and Khloe donned shimmery silver dresses at The MTV Australia Awards and while both Kardashians look hot, surely one wins over the other on the sexy scale. After all, what good are sisters if you can’t compete with them?
And if you really want to see sisterly love get violent, check out this clip below the jump of the girls throwing punches after a trip to the Bentley dealership goes sour. It’s krazy!
Not content with being known to the world as a curvaceous, platinum actress, Scarlett Johansson is branching out into the world of singing. For her first album, she’s tackled the Tom Waits songbook, and for the first video, she’s created a bleached out, weary look at a day in the life of a starlet. Fittings, make-up, commercials for something, visiting with author Salman Rushdie and forlornly looking out the window are the action in “Falling Down”….tough life!
Anybody else think this has a Lost in Translation feel to it, except this time she’s the worn-down Bill Murray character?
News alert! Heidi Montag is NOT a robot, even though her looks suggest otherwise. The Hills camera-hog – who spends most of her time posing in front of random monuments while decked out in practically no clothes – let the tears flow in an interview while discussing the death of her brother. Decked out in layers of makeup and fake hair, we actually see a glimpse of the really Heidi, who is mourning not just brother, but the fact that certain friends (yes, Lauren Conrad) never reached out to her following her loss. Did we just learn that LC is that much of a b*tch? Uh oh, we may join Team Heidi after all. [via PerezHilton]
Let’s see…they’re both trashy and they’ve both made a ton of cash off of sex. So why are Ashley Alexandra Dupre and Joe Francis battling each other in court? Ashley, whose best known as former Governor Eliot Spitzer‘s preferred call girl, is suing the Girls Gone Wild creator, after his company dug up and used tapes of Dupre that she made for the video porn biz as a high school student while on spring break. Francis, who just got out of jail, issued the following statement: “She’s seeking $10 Million for topless photos taken in front of a room full of people, including two newspapers and multiple crews we had in the room. These images were taken in public places and contain no sexual contact. We expect to triumph in this matter and continue to offer the best and hottest girls.”
$10 million! Not a bad asking price. And hey – she could get it by taking her clothes off, or leaving them on and going to court. We’re kinda proud of Ash for choosing the latter. [ET]
