Marcheline Bertrand, actress and mother of Angelina Jolie, died on Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The 56-year-old Bertrand, who battled cancer for over seven-and-a-half years, was surrounded by her children, Angelina and son James Haven, as well as Jolie's partner, Brad Pitt.

"Marcheline was beautiful, caring and totally devoted to her children. I never saw her upset or sad, even after she was diagnosed with cancer," Lea Hunter, who once dated Haven, told People magazine. "She always treated me like a member of her family."

Bertrand, who had small roles in movies including 1983's The Man Who Loved Women, raised Jolie and brother Haven by herself after divorcing their father, Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, when Jolie was a toddler.

When Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was born in May, Bertrand told People:

"My heart is overflowing with joy with the new arrival of Brad and Angelina's third child. Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh are deeply loved children. They have very kind and caring parents who love and support each other in every way."

Tara Conner is back in the non-rehab world - but fans should expect "a completely different person" Miss USA said to People magazine.

"My life has completely changed," she said. "I'm a completely different person out of rehab. Before I entered rehab I hardly knew who I was. I felt like I was floating and I just needed someone to pull me down."

And that person, oddly enough, turned out to be pageant owner Donald Trump.

The Kentucky native, who turned 21 on Dec. 18, initially entered a rehabilitation center in Pennsylvania on Dec. 21, following allegations of hard partying, indiscretions with Katie Blair and unreliability.

She spent 31 days there â€" including Christmas and New Year's Eve.

"I didn't think I had any kind of issue going into rehab. I even said, 'I'll get some free therapy,' or something like that â€" and that was so ridiculous," says Conner. "But I've realized I do have an issue. I suffer from the disease of alcoholism and addiction. And if there's anything that I want people to know it's the severity of this disease and what it can do to people."

Lindsay Lohan has also learned that lesson recently.

In her interview with People, Conner also admits that she tried drugs in addition to alcohol, and that she took her first drink at the age of 14.

The Hollywood Gossip hopes she truly is on her way to recovery now. We also hope Tomiko Nash has accepted her fate as runner-up.

Hamburg, Germany got the first taste of Oral Fixation last night - as Shakira kicked off the tour by that name in the European city.

The charitable star is a hit across the world because, well, have you ever seen her dance? Put her on a dance floor with good friend, Fergie, and watch them burn it up like Left Eye taking down Andre Rison's house.

Shakira Fashion

But anyway.

The Hollywood Gossip figured we'd post a Shakira picture from last night's show below. It may not be Eva Longoria nude - but unattractive it's not.

Well, not exactly. Although he is in this picture, we think, Jayden James Federline appears to be stuffed into a crate. Now that's great parenting.

Britney Spears and her brood are seen here getting off a private jet at Van Nuys airport yesterday, upon returning from her aunt's funeral, which Brit attended in her native Louisiana. No Isaac Cohen though. Here's the pic:

Spears quickly loaded up little Jayden James and his older brother Sean Preston Federline and headed straight to a rehearsal studio in Burbank. While this is not quite the manner in which we envisioned the first Jayden James pictures, it'll have to do for now.

Just hope the poor thing can breathe in there. Gotta poke holes in the box, B.

Now it all makes sense.

For awhile, we didn't understand why Mariah Carey cared that a porn star shared a similar-sounding name. Aren't music and pornography very different worlds?

Will fans truly mix up Mimi for Mary Carey?

But now that we've learned Mariah will pose in Playboy, it's apparently the soon-to-be washed up singer will soon be starting a career in skin flicks herself.

Granted, Mariah won't be nude in the pictorial. She'll continue to leave all sex pictures to Paris Hilton. But she'll still be featured in the publication. Don't ask Carey about the layout, however.

She'll just say it never happened, just like her lies regarding Eminem getting her in the sack.

It is time, once again, for celebrity look-alikes at The Hollywood Gossip. Yesterday we brought you the fabulous Kristin Cavallari and a couple of other young blondes she resembles. Today, it's time for another Laguna Beach alum to be featured in all his greasiness.

Behold, Irish actor and ladykiller Colin Farrell and Reality TV "star" Jason Wahler - who while first becoming known to us on Laguna Beach, later resurfaced on The Hills, the Laguna spin-off featuring Lauren Conrad. She dumped his ass eventually.

Douchenozzle

Funny thing is, these two is that they may have more than looks and a penchant for getting arrested in common. TMZ reports that Wahler rolled to Hyde last night. Who else was there? Playboy centerfold Nicole Narain - co-star of the Colin Farrell sex tape (not to be confused with the woman allegedly stalking him)!

Okay, so that's a bit of a stretch. But come on. Jason Wahler got into Hyde! That's funny in and of itself. Speaking of sex tapes, wonder what Kim Kardashian is up to right now.

Lindsay Lohan is out of rehab is record time. Someone, get that girl a drink to celebrate!

Proving to Tara Conner that only weaklings need a whole 30 days to sober up, Lohan supposedly kicked her drinking problem in less than a week; a source close to the situation says Lohan's latest movie, I Know Who Killed Me, began shooting again on Thursday.

"People were getting a bit antsy about what the status was, so it's pretty thrilling," says the source. "As soon as Lindsay was cleared, they started everything back up again."

We can only imagine how proud Dina Lohan is of her daughter now.

The source added that Lohan was likely to resume a full workload, which a rep for the movie described earlier as 13 to 14 hours a day. She may need a Red Bull and vodka of half a dozen just tp keep up.

In the end, of course, we're glad Lindsay is out. We hope Ali Lohan takes note of how simple it can be to do a lot of drugs and men and then enter rehab for a week to get better.

We also wonder if Britney Spears will follow K-Fed's advice and check herself in next. Apparently, it only takes a few days to be cured, Brit.

What's less shocking than a shot of Paris Hilton topless?

A nude picture of the HO-tel heiress in a rather compromising position.

Paris and Doug Celebrate

Below, Hilton spends a typical Tuesday night at home. You can bet good pal, Jenna Jameson, is proud of Paris' exploits, but others might not feel the same way.

For example, good friend Kim Kardashian is probably pissed that Hilton has jumped back into the sex tape spotlight. It was her turn with Ray J, after all.

How insensitive can Paris and her firecrotch be?!?

Rolling Stone recently held a contest for wannabe journalists where they offered contestants the chance to ask 10 questions to their favorite musician. Somehow, people picked John Mayer to answer said questions.

In responding to inquiries from the latest "I'm from Rolling Stone" contest winner, 22-year-old Andrew Miller, the dude who loves his porn and wears bear costumes and is hanging out with Jessica Simpson for only two reasons (no matter what he tells you) didn't say much of anything interesting.

John, Jen

In fact, we have no idea why we're even writing about it. At The Hollywood Gossip, it's been a slow day (not that you couldn't figure that out strictly from the Maui Fever article). Anyway, here are a few excerpts from the interview:

Q: So, now the squeaky clean guy who once penned the lyric "bubble-gum tongue" is a weed enthusiast?

John Mayer: Not anymore. How can I explain this succinctly? Sometimes you have to experiment with an updated design for yourself before you realize the original design never stopped working for you. Rolling Stone is like your older brother's cool friend, and you'll be surprised what you'll do to get Keith with the Camaro to like you.

Q: Ever purchase a Jessica Simpson album?

John Mayer: I listen to most new music released every week.

Q: You turn 30 in October. What will be the worst part about seeing your 20's go away?

John Mayer: There are lots of very invasive tests that doctors like to administer to men in their thirties. These tests usually result in a ride home with the radio off and very little blinking.

THG NOTE: Is there actually someone out there who cares what John Mayer thinks about aging? Or thinks that John Mayer is the slightest bit funny? Why wouldn't you ask him something interesting, like what Jennifer Love Hewitt's favorite position is? Rolling Stone - all respect gone.

Actually, we do have to give Mayer a little credit for his proposed solution to the ongoing Grey's Anatomy feud. But it pains us to do so.

If you thought The Hills were a fun place, MTV wants you to know they're nothing compared to the islands.

The music channel's latest faux-reality, semi-scripted hit TV show, Maui Fever, is causing waves of anger across the island by locals who don't think the show accurately portrays life of residents.

They want you to think Hawaii is not just full of Brooke Burke bikini shots and the like. We're not sure why.

The show focuses on a group of good-looking Mainlanders living in Maui. The cameras capture them performing their daily routines, consisting primarily of drinking, hooking up, surfing, hooking up, and drinking while hooking up.

"I thought it was kind of insulting...they just show partying," Abcde Shibao, 16, of Lahaina said. "But (young people are) active in school, community and sports. We do other things besides partying."

Abcde makes a good point. So far, Fghij has refrained from comment.

The show is produced by Morgan J. Freeman, who has also produced such television classics as Laguna Beach, Dawson's Creek and pretty much every show that has to do with young good-looking people near water.

And we don't see the problem with that. Who wants to watch nerds in the classroom? Give us Kristin Cavallari topless!

Or Heidi Montag possibly pregnant!

And, you know, maybe a music video every now and then.
