Someone tell Teri Hatcher that “Idol Gives Back” is over. On last night’s episode our desperate straggler was joined in the audience by two other celebs – Minnie Driver and Ramile Malubay – who are known for skills other than singing. No doubt all three were eager to hear what the unstoppable pop icon Mariah Carey would serve up as mentor to our seven remaining hopefuls. The contestants joined her at the piano for some lessons in the method of Mimi. How did they fare as they attempted her chirpy and dramatic ditties?

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt went on a dinner date last night at NYC’s Kobe Club. Not only does this ruin the The Hills‘ only semi-dramatic hook, which is that the two are now on “relationship vacation” and seem to be headed towards a complete breakup, but Heidi allegedly said the following gem to the press in regards to a possible Hills movie:
I’ve never discussed a movie possibility for The Hills … and I’m not sure if for my first movie I’d let Lauren Conrad narrate me, so I don’t think that would be something I would do. If I was doing movies, I’d want it to be with Denzel Washington or something like that. If they were to make a Hills movie, I wouldn’t be in it. No, thank you. The perfect movie I want to do is like Sydney Bristow [Jennifer Garner] on Alias I want to be, like, an action star. I want a big gun. Like Angelina Jolie roles. I want to be the badass.
Heidi, you star in a reality television show about spoiled twenty somethings that obsess over petty details in their self-important lives. This doesn’t mean that you have the talent to be a pop star, a fashion designer and a leading actress of Hollywood movies. It’s true that you have beautiful legs, but I wouldn’t sit by the phone waiting for Denzel’s people to call. [Photo: James Devaney/WireImage]
The Ashlee pregnancy buzz isn’t shutting up, and the pop star hasn’t been much help in stopping it, either. Her future hubby called the rumors a “witch hunt” earlier in the week, and Ash addressed the drama during her appearance on MTV’s TRL, giving the world’s most vague statement ever. “I just think it’s an inappropriate question to ask any woman,” the singer told MTV News. “For me, that’s something that I didn’t ever want to respond to, because I think it’s an inappropriate question. Some things, you want to keep personal, and I think that when people deny [reports that they're pregnant], it’s probably because it’s something they want to keep personal.”
Ummmm, so basically, she’s pregnant? Even though she’s not offering any concrete info, People magazine joined the ranks of tabloids (including Us and OK!) who have “confirmed” Ash’s pregnancy with an anonymous source. They even go so far as to allege that she and Pete will be married in May at a friend’s house in La Jolla, Cali. So here’s a congratulations to the happy couple – for whatever happens to be true!
The Associated Press scored an interview with Bret Michaels after Rock of Love 2 wrapped up. Asked if he thought he was going to find true love, Bret responded:
I said this from day one: I went into this to have fun and maybe find someone to like. True love is not going to be found instantly on a TV show. That is only for scripted shows. Scripted reality, they give someone a show. It is the reason “Rock of Love” has been the No. 1 show. It has been kept as real as possible. Anyone thinking they are going into a TV show finding love, they might find someone that they like and eventually learn to like them more. I think finding true love, I never went in with that intent.
Hmmmm. Did he see I Love New York 2? She set out looking for love, and may have found it. At least he still has a relationship with Ambre (unlike his immediate fallout with the first Rock of Love winner): “I found someone who is really nice and cool and gets rock ‘n’ roll,” said Bret. “We can see where it goes from here.”
The AP also asked about his future in television.
AP: Will there be a “Rock of Love 3″?
Michaels: I don’t know … We are looking to do a show called “Bret Michaels Big Rock Road Show” which is just rockers gone wild on the road. I never say never. Right now I am not mentally there. I am having fun doing it and I am thankful to the fans that made the show number one. The girls made the show great.
Sneak peek the Rock of Love 2 reunion now and tune in this Sunday at 9PM EST.

Oh man. Chili is seriously asking for an ass-whupping from Usher‘s wife Tameka. The TLC singer recently revealed that of all the men she’s loved and lost – including Marlon Wayans – her ex Usher was the one she was meant to be with. Too bad he had all those “confessions” that prevented their relationship from really working out. Even Chili knows Tameka’s not gonna like what she has to say – let’s just hope she’s in hiding somewhere! Check out her revelation below. Think there’s a chance they’d ever get back together?
“Lord, Tameka gonna be trying to fight people. But honestly I will say, although Marlon is the one that got away, Usher is the one that I truly did love. Like that was truly my first adult love. I love him very much and I will always love him. I don’t know how you love someone that deeply and just stop loving them. I’m not in love with him anymore but I can’t say that I don’t love him anymore. And of course I do want him to be happy and all but me and him had what I never had in any of my other relationships, and that was chemistry. Even in that picture that you have up. Any picture that you see with the two of us, you see it. It’s just there! I could be standing next to him til this day and people will be like “Wow”. It’s not that you are wondering if we are back together again, it’s just that we look like we just go together.”
It’s Mariah Carey Day around the world, as her album E=MC² drops today with much fanfare. Yesterday our favorite diva showed up on Oprah to give the talk queen a personal tour of her massive NYC house. Our favorite spot in her lair? Mariah’s effing lingerie closet, which you can gawk at in the video clip above. She really IS just like us common folk! Mimi has like, a billion sexy nighties, which is a good thing because it’s rumored that she might have a new boy toy just waiting to see her strip down to something more comfortable. The singer’s been spotted recently getting close with the multi-talented hottie (and heartbreaker) Nick Cannon. Sure, her rep’s denying that they’re together, but they were just in Vegas last night acting chummy! And let’s be real – there’s nothing like celebrating a hit album with a little booty call, right?
“I’m all about upright and upliftin’ the woman,” announced YoYo on her signature hit, 1991′s “You Can’t Play With My YoYo.” She does just that as hostess of egotrip’s Miss Rap Supreme, a gig that finds her schooling budding female rappers on the trials and tribulations she faced coming up in the industry.
Below, the Queen of West Coast Rap talks about the show, coping when her rap career stalled, hip-hops prevailing misogyny, her relationship with 2Pac and what it was like coming face-to-face on the set of Miss Rap Supreme with one of her biggest adversaries on wax: Roxanne Shanté.
Every week we re-cap Monday night’s Hills episode with a series of haiku poems about the show. Add your own masterpieces in the comments section below. As a bonus this week, we’ve added a video of Heidi Montag freestyling on TRL yesterday. It’s almost as horrific as her new clothing line, which should tell you a lot.
Haiku #1: Speidi
Heidi is SO mad.
Like really f*cking mad, you guys.
Where’s the camera?
Haiku #2: People’s Revolution
Kelly Cutrone can
take her job offer and shove it-
I mean, I accept!
Haiku #3: Girls Night
Audrina’s deep thoughts:
Yeah, like, me too, I know, yeah,
Me too! Totally.
Remember when Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian were BFF? Well not anymore! Though the two have remained mum on their pal-split thus far, Paris did reveal her feelings about Kim’s notorious ass on a Vegas radio show, when asked if she’d rather have Jessica Simpson’s rack or Kim’s butt. “It reminds me of cottage cheese inside a big trash bag,” she snipped.
Yep, spoken like a true former friend. After the cruel (but kind of hilarious) insult leaked onto the web, the heiress freaked and called Kim to apologize. “I was just joking around and I made a stupid joke,” Paris told In Touch. “I felt really bad afterward, so I contacted Kim and apologized. It was a silly thing to say. Kim’s hot!”
We’d love to see what kind of nasty shizz Paris dishes when she’s not joking. Hopefully I can become her BFF and find out! Vote for me and help me win a chance to be Paris Hilton’s best friend. Please!? I’ll diss your butt if you don’t.
Not only are the Kooks an incredibly talented indie rock outfit, they’re also really nice guys. So nice, in fact, that they’re giving you — for free! — the first single off their album Konk, out today. To find out more about the skinny-jeaned chaps, check out the interview we did with them about the road, Courtney Love, and drinking until they pass out.
