Here's all you really need to know about Melinda Doolittle: She may be the best singer American Idol of all-time.

Sorry, Carrie Underwood, but just take a listen to this contestant. And while you're at it, take a look at the following bio:

Age: 29
Relationship Status: Single
Pre-Idol: Brentwood, Tenn.-based backup singer for Aaron Neville, CeCe Winans and Idol alum George Huff
Why She Auditioned: "Some friends invited me to go with them to the Memphis audition, saying it would be fun to watch the funny singers," says Doolittle. "On the way we decided the whole car had to audition, and I ended up being the only one to make it."
Idol Style: "I'm a bit of a tomboy, so these heels and all this are not normal for me. It's fun, but it's like playing dress-up, so when I go home, it's snatch the wig off and lie down!"

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Beyonce has also been know to take off wigs.

Backstage Secret: "I am the oldest one here," she says, "so the other contestants call me Mama. I love to be silly. Everybody thinks I'm shy, but I'm not shy. I just get a little nervous occasionally."
The Makeover: "I am the worst," says Doolittle of her style sense. "Thank God I have help."

Fortunately for fans, none of that help has come from Sanjaya Malakar.

Evidently, the good people at New Woman magazine have never heard of Keeley Hazell.

After all, the editors behind that magazine have voted that Elizabeth Hurley has the best body in Britain.

"She is pencil-slim but still curvy, the ideal most women desperately want. For most of us, a body like Elizabeth Hurley's would require a lifetime of sacrifice," said New Woman editor Helen Johnston.

We're sure Arun Nayar is proud of his new wife, but we're not sure if the ex of Hugh Grant deserves such an honor.

Then again, she's definitely high above the woman that took second place in the publication's poll: breasty Victoria Beckham. The third spot went to Myleene Klass and the fourth belongs to Kelly Brook.

Rounding out the top five is Kate Moss. Her boyfriend and possible fiance, Pete Doherty, is probably proud of his mate, as well. But he has no idea where he is right now.

Maybe Antonella Barba could give us another reason why this spoiled vixen would be on her knees.

Actually, Kimberly Stewart probably knows what we mean. In this case, however, the daugther of Rod is just checking out a clothing rack.

Maybe she wants to look extra good in order to attend the premiere of Sons of Hollywood, the lame show on A&E starring her brother, Sean Stewart. Or maybe she just knows that her good pal, Kim Kardashian, is going nude these days. So Stewart has to look extra good for attention.

No matter what the reason, here she is. Let's hope Kimberly makes the right fashion choice or Stephen Colbert might put her On Notice.

Once again, the incomparable Stephen Colbert has taken the time out of his hit Comedy Central show, The Colbert Report, to tackle more important issues. It's been a hell of a week. Who (and what) makes the latest edition of the "On Notice" board? Let's see...

It's impossible to argue with his selections. Divorce settlements are bad news all around (talking to you, Britney). And what's with everybody's fiancee getting knocked up before walking down the aisle? It's not just for Keri Russell and Amanda Peet anymore. Everybody's doing it this way. Was there some memo we didn't get?

As for the rest of the list...

  • It's the hair. What else could possibly keep Sanjaya Malakar on American Idol? Watching the guy is raw pain. Yet he stays. Every week. As our ears bleed. Literally.
  • We get it. Heather Mills has a prosthetic leg, yet is on a reality show about dancing! Amazing! Enough. Shouldn't science get the credit for making this possible, not the gold-digging former call girl?
  • Mortgage lenders are paying the price for issuing many thousands of home loans to borrowers with bad credit. If your credit is so poor that you can't qualify for low mortgage rates, should you really be buying a house at all? Think about it.
  • François-Henri Pinault, if you don't treat Salma Hayek right, we will end you.
  • What is it with Laguna Beach graduates and getting arrested? First Jason Wahler (x3), now Jessica Smith. This town should hire one of its less troubled alums, Lauren Conrad, to conduct an anti-DUI seminar.
  • Everyone's trying the pink hair thing. Scarlett Johansson. Kelis. Rachel McAdams. Joss Stone. In a word, it looks really friggin' lame. Get a life! Pink (the singer, not the color) is rolling in her grave.

TMZ has learned that a woman was arrested in front of the Beverly Hills mansion of Tom Cruise after someone inside the estate tipped off police.

According to police sources, and relayed to us by TMZ, 32-year-old Emily Diane Leatherman, a known transient, was arrested in front of the movie star's home for receiving known stolen property and for violating a court order. It is not yet clear which court order was violated.

Not His Best Look

The crazy thing? This isn't the first time that Leatherman - who is currently being held at a Beverly Hills jail on $45,000 bail - has been in the news for stalking!

Last year, a judge ordered her to stay at least 500 feet away from John Cusack after the actor claimed that she showed "an unusual interest by stalking, throwing a long letter of interest over my fence in bags with rocks and screwdrivers inside."

Always classy. Leatherman insisted that she was only trying to contact famous people to have them tell her tale of being sexually assaulted and harassed.

Yeah, yeah. That's probably what Dominick Giordano said when he got busted for stalking Michelle Branch earlier this week. It's the oldest story in the book, lady.

We're just glad that little Asian cutie Suri Cruise and her brainwashed mother, Katie Holmes, weren't exposed to any harm as a result of this lunatic.

Get ready for our next headline: Nun Actually Likes Tricia Helfer Nude Pics.

You see, Michael Corcoran is a music critic in Austin, Texas. Supposedly, he knows a lot about the industry as Lauren Conrad knows about fashion.

Sanjaya Picture

So he obviously despises Sanjaya Malakar, right? Right?!? Actually ...

"My ears and eyes must be deceiving me; Sanjaya is not bad at all. From what I heard on Howard Stern and all the piling on in the office on Wednesday mornings, the kid was this year's William Hung, a big joke that he wasn't in on," the critic somehow sad.

"But I called up a couple of his performances on YouTube and he sang on pitch, had a cool look and seemed to be having a blast. Huge careers have been built on less."

"Stop making this 17-year-old kid your scapegoat, you Sanjaya-hatas. I mean, aren't you the people that gave us the indistinguishable Taylor Hicks? Without Sanjaya, this would be one of the most forgettable [American Idol] seasons."

Corcoran makes a decent point. But he's obviously forgotten that Antonella Barba photos have already made this a memorable season of the FOX show.

And if Haley Scarnato continues to sing well and be hot, you never know what the American Idol future will bring.

Victoria Beckham and David Beckham are still looking for a home in the U.S. - but don't think they'll overpay on their mortgage just because they're famous!

The couple refuses to get screwed on a house whose price has been jacked up simply because the famous pair and her huge breasts are in the market.

A Worried Fan

"It's pretty hard to keep identities secret when you are interested in multimillion-dollar mansions," a source close to the Beckhams said.

"Once sellers find out who's interested in buying, the prices immediately skyrocket. It's ridiculous."

As a result, says the source, "Victoria and David have still not decided on a house for when they move to L.A. They refuse to pay above the odds just because they are famous."

In January it was announced that the David Beckham would move to California after the former English soccer captain, 31, signed a lucrative five-year deal with the L.A. Galaxy - which apparently exists.

Since then, Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice, 32, has made several trips to the west coast to check on possible homes for themselves and private schools for their sons Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 4 and Cruz, 2.

Although schools have been narrowed down, the family is struggling to find a suitable mansion. Britney Spears is currently experiencing the same thing!

"They will definitely buy in or around Beverly Hills. It makes sense for them," a pal says. "But they will not pay excess prices purely because of who they are. They're careful with money."

Reps for the couple were not immediately available for comment.

"They don't want to get stuck in a bidding war. One mansion recently went up by millions as soon as the owner found out the Beckhams were interested," says the source. "The problem is they need a big house."

Doesn't Tom Cruise have guest quarters or a pool house or something?

One thing's for sure - wherever they land will be recorded for TV cameras, since Posh has signed to star in a six-part, NBC reality show that will coincide with the family's move to L.A.

"They have a lot of work to do before David finishes playing soccer in Spain," says the source. "Their house in Madrid needs to be sold before they move in July."

Otherwise, they could get saddled with two mortgages. Which is a concern every relocating homeowner faces. No clue how they'd be able to afford that on his $50 million salary. Maybe with a bridge loan?

Is Isla Fisher knocked up with a baby Borat?

An inside source, who is not unreliable at all, said that Fisher announced she�s expecting Sacha Baron Cohen�s baby at the Cat and the Fiddle pub in Los Angeles this week.

Bruno Picture

�Isla called everyone to a toast and gushed, �We have got good news. I am pregnant.��

�We have got� good news? Most awkward toast phrasing ever.

The couple are currently engaged, but a rep for the Wedding Crashers actress won�t confirm or deny the pregnancy.

Somehow we�re guessing this rumor is about as real as the Ryan Phillippe / Ashlee Simpson hookup some tabloids were reporting a week or so ago. But hey, our fingers are crossed!

Cohen, whose hit movie Borat won numerous accolades last year, was said to have stayed in character for months as it was filmed. No doubt Fisher was happy to see that end.

If she�s pregnant, it will be the latest in a long line of unwed celebrity pregnancies. Salma Hayek (via the seed of François-Henri Pinault)> and Jennifer Meyer (the mother of Tobey Maguire�s baby, Ruby) come to mind.

Embattled actress, singer and America's Got Talent judge Brandy Norwood appears to be searching for some enlightment.

According to TMZ, the troubled Brandy finally surfaced in West Hollywood on Wednesday outside the Bodhi Tree bookstore, which specializes in New Age and other spiritual texts. Bet Britney Spears is on her way there as we speak!

Ray J and Brandy

The R&B diva and former Moesha star hasn't been seen on the town much since her involvement in a freeway crash that claimed a woman's life. But here she is:

Brandy, the sister of Ray J, has yet to hear if charges will be brought against her. She is seen here, notably, entering the passenger side of a shiny new silver Range Rover. Daaamn. Nice ride! Try not to kill someone with it!

Brandy was not under the influence of any kind during the accident, though she has been ruled at fault. The actress' car troubles follow the shocking, similar case of Lane Garrison, who's also staring at vehicular manslaughter charges.

Other notable, D-list celebrities to be busted for DUI in recent weeks are Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, Vivica A. Fox and Laguna Beach star Jessica Smith.

LIME recently completed a survey regarding celebrities and a wide range of health issues. Some of the results were expected. For example ...

Britney Spears is considered most in need of a more balanced lifestyle. The newly shaven celeb topped the unhealthy list with a whopping 81 percent saying of respondents saying she needs to "live the change."

A Nude Britney Spears

In the eyes of Americans, Lindsay Lohan (14%) has somehow made great progress in living healthier, while a few others believe that Eminem (4%) and Mischa Barton (1%) need to start making some changes.

Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey is the "Queen of Healthy Living," as she tops the list (at 47%) on the question of which celebritiess have most helped Americans re-evaluate their own views on the importance of living a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. Lance Armstrong comes in at a healthy second with 37%, while Ozzy Osbourne (8%) and Tyra Banks (8%) are tied at the bottom of the list.

Oprah's pal Bono is number-one when it comes to raising awareness for a cause (AIDS). He brought in nearly half the votes (48%) on who has made the greatest positive impact on raising social-consciousness about their charity. Angelina Jolie came was second (25%) with her work with the UNHCR, overshadowing the efforts almost two-fold of Ben & Jerry (16%) for Saving the Planet, and Harry Connick, Jr (11%) for Hurricane Katrina relief.

In more random results; 44% of respondants chose Cameron Diaz as the ideal yoga partner, more than double the folks who would want to partner with Jada Pinkett Smith (22%), L.L. Cool J (18%), and Mark Wahlberg (17%).

Finally, Americans want to spend a day doing green things such as recycling most with Salma Hayek (37%) and Brad Pitt (30%), while Sting (19%) and Daryl Hannah (13%) would have less fans sifting through the dumpsters with them on recycling-with-the-rich-and-famous day.
