The MTV Movie Awards, which will be broadcast live Sunday, June 3, at 8 p.m., are always a cool event - but this year, you can help shape it like never before.

You'll probably never get Lauren Conrad out of her clothes (sorry guys), but by taking part in an online Yahoo! poll (click here to vote), you can decide what designer dress the SoCal cutie puts on when she goes to the annual MTV gala.

The star of Laguna Beach and The Hills is currently deciding between dresses by Castle Starr, Samantha Treacy and Pamela Roland. Check out videos of Lauren Conrad trying on all three options and decide which she should go with!

Lauren, who's in the process of developing her own fashion line as well as taking over reality TV, looks great in all three if you ask us. Therefore, we guarantee two things:

  1. The results of the poll will be a success.
  2. Jason Wahler won't be in attendance.

The California sweetheart is proof that you don't have to be a publicity crazing jerk (Spencer Pratt) or get fake boobs (Heidi Montag) in order to be happy.

The debate over Rosie O'Donnell continues.

While the liberal lesbian sits at home and fans either rally to her defense or enemies bid her good riddance, one group of passionate followers are calling for the firing of Rosie's former co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

An online petition that currently has over 14,000 signatures on it is urging The View to let the show's lone conservative voice go. People seem more fired up over this incident than they are over the elimination of Melinda Doolittle on American Idol.

And that's fine. America allows people to express their views in any non-violent ways they see fit. But doesn't that include Hasselbeck? The following excerpt from the petition's website makes it seem like the originators simply want Elisabeth fired because they don't agree with her:

While the purpose of The View is for different views to be expressed, each co-host should be able to express their views without being attacked by a closed-minded co-host who blindly refuses to listen to facts and uses the show to angrily spout propaganda.

So, based on this text, Hasselbeck cannot have an opinion because she doesn't listen to facts? Look, The Hollywood Gossip doesn't buy most of what Elisabeth is saying, but we'll blog to our deaths her right to say it at least. That's what makes America the best country in the world!

Now go exercise your right to laugh at photos of Lindsay Lohan passed out drunk.

Paris Hilton's pussy isn't the only animal fearing for its life.

The law-breaking heiress may be putting on a tough exterior in the face of impending jail time, but friends say she actually is not looking forward to life behind bars.

Paris Hilton, Brittany Flickinger

"Paris hasn't been eating at all and her parents and friends are beyond worried about her," a source says. "She breaks down crying a lot because she just can't deal with the reality and the pressure of everything that is happening."

At least her pal Nicole Richie can empathize with the lack of eating part.

Hilton, as any celebrity gossip follower knows by now, was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating probation by driving with a suspended license; a police rep recently said she will serve at least 23 days of that sentence.

It's not such a Simple Life after all, is it, Paris?!?

Hilton had said in a statement shortly after her sentencing:

"I am ready to face the consequences of violating probation," and that seems to be the case, as she dropped her appeal less than two weeks later.

But sources say Paris is more afraid than she's letting on. She's acting phonier than a staged photo of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.

"She's been having such a tough time with it all despite her going out with friends and going shopping," the source says. "She just does that to keep her mind off things and to try and stay as normal as possible right now."

Because multi, multi-millionaires hotel heiresses are so normal to begin with. That's like saying Asia Nitollano isn't controversial.

Hilton has until June 5 to turn herself in to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. A police spokesperson confirms that Hilton will be placed in "special needs housing," a section of the jail reserved for high-profile prisoners.

It's the sort of location many Simon Monjack critics believe Brittany Murphy's new husband belongs in.

Meanwhile, aside from Hilton's family, few are supporting this promiscuous wench.

"As for her friends, that's been another spot of stress for Paris," a source says. "She really can't take how most people around her have scattered and distanced themselves."

Kim Kardashian would seem to be a prime example of this. But her and Hilton ended their friendship long before the latter was sentenced to hard time.

Jake Gyllenhaal is HOT.

Even you guys have to admit that.

And Reese Witherspoon is a cutie.

No one sane is gonna argue that either.

It's nice to see that this sweet, talented Hollywood couple is still going strong, while at the same time, keeping their courtship on the low-key side.

No trips to Hyde. No preening for the cameras, Heidi Montag style. Just good, old-fashioned getting to know each other and having fun.

Reese Witherspoon, 31, and Jake Gyllenhaal, 26, who met last summer on the set of Rendition, had a rendezvous following a May 25 visit to a doctor's office in Culver City, California.

After the appointment, the pair hopped into separate cars and headed to Reese Witherspoon's house. They make have gone to second base there.

"Jake put his hand out of the sunroof and was waving," says an eyewitness to the love story that is Gyllenhitherspoon. "They looked totally in love."

We're guessing that Jake hasn't yet busted out any Brokeback Mountain quotes such as "Reese, baby, I wish I knew how to quit you."

Contrarily, the impression he's giving pals is that of a smitten guy. They've been more than friends for three months now, but every day feels like the first.

"Jake said he's found someone who knows how to look out for both of them, and not just themselves," a Gyllenhaal source reports. "Reese is more attentive than anyone else he knows."

Reese's ex, Ryan Phillippe, was certainly attentive the other night. To Britney Spears. In the bathroom. At Les Deux! Well, probably not. But we heard that rumor.

Out and about, no pants necessary.

That's the Mary-Kate Olsen mantra.

The more famous one of the Olsen Twins is seen here kissing her boyfriend earlier this week. She seems to go for guys that don't put grooming at the top of the list.

Which is appropriate, since the girl's rare brand of fashion (non)sense is rivaled by only a select few, such as the great Britney Spears.

Nonetheless, it appears Mary-Kate and Max Snow are going strong.

Oh, to be Max Snow. As Mary-Kate's "rocker" boyfriend, his existence is comprised of being photographed out on dates with the poster child for hobo chic, then going home and doing the nasty to Full House reruns. Some people just have the life.

Here's the look that Max Snow apparently digs...

  • Oversized men's shirts
  • Weird ass platform shoes
  • Risky Business style sunglasses
  • Cigarette hanging out of mouth
  • Large cup of coffee at all times
  • Too much makeup
  • Bed head
  • No pants

Readers of The Hollywood Gossip are not afraid to voice their opinions. And we thank each and every one of you for that. Some of the issues you feel the strongest about are:

Greg Laswell rules.

Simon Monjack sucks.

One celebrity about whom voices are mixed, however, is new Pussycat Dolls member Asia Nitollano. Many of you think she's a great addition to the group. Others lament that Melissa was not chosen as winner of the reality competition that crowned the newest Doll.

While you decide on which side you stand - and controversy swirls over whether or not Asia will ever sing with the group - read a few of the reader comments left by those that have already made up their minds...

KALIMAH writes: I think that it is jacked up what they are saying about Asia. She won that contest fair and square. The girl has talent and she worked so hard. She deserves a record deal rather it be with the pussy cat dolls or solo. You dont fulfill someone's dream then take it away without a valid excuse.

TAMARA writes: all i got to say is that maybe they don't think shes fits becaause she looks and acts like the lead singer… i honestly think she'd be a better leader then [Nicole Scherzinger]…

supeRr-cOokiie writes: MELISSA SHOULD'VE WON! although she did look abit like nicole. melissa was hell good. i think she is a pussy cat doll! i didnt like asia! she was so mean! and chelsea was alright. but melissa should've won! PCD is just.. not cool anymore. lol.

KRISTIE writes: asia is a bad mother if she leave her daughter to go on tour she has a responsability now its not all about her!!!!!1 i feel sorry for her daughter having a mother like her. i wont be buying any albums if she is in them!!!!!!

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Wow, that's harsh. Wonder how Kristie feels about the fact that Britney Spears hasn't seen Jayden James in two or six months.

SARA MAY writes: I think that Melissa R should have won, she is a better singer and dancer, and she sims to come along with other girls better. I have also read that in the next season they are looking for members to form a new group, inspired by the pussycat dolls.

JEFF LOVES ASIA writes: Asia was the best pick for the Dolls, shes hot shes a great singer and that girl can dance. Chelsea tried to be too much like Christina Aguilera, if she wants to be her go sing back up with her or something. and Melissa R. was a good singer but she didn't make a good doll. Asia's got that sparkle.

So there you have it, celebrity gossip lovers. A mixed bag of opinions if there ever were any.

Write in and let us know where you stand on Asia. While you're at it, feel free to chime in on the Holly Madison vs. Carmella DeCesare nude debate, as well.

Brittany Murphy and Factory Girl writer-executive producer Simon Monjack shocked friends, family and celebrity gossip readers in April by marrying after only four months of dating.

The couple skipped the proposal and honeymoon, exchanging Neil Lane rings in a surprise wedding in a private L.A. home with only their families present.

But now the happy bride's inner circle is growing concerned about her new man's history before he swept Brittany Murphy, 29, off her feet.

Among his troubles: two warrants for his arrest in Virginia for alleged credit-card theft and fraud; an unpaid $6,087 legal bill, and a $502,910 judgment against him by a British investment firm.

We don't know what it says about our readers that they were onto Simon Monjack apparently long before Brittany, or any of her friends or family.

But bless you all.

Moreover, Us Weekly reports in its new issue that Monjack gave a former fiancée, British film producer Taira Rafiq, an engagement ring he had told her was a diamond but was, in fact, cubic zirconia.

"Taira tried to get in touch with Brittany Murphy to warn her," a Rafiq pal says.

Simon Monjack also was jailed earlier this year for overstaying his visa, and Murphy had to bail him out when he faced deportation.

"Simon began pushing for marriage, since he was going to be deported," says a source, adding that Murphy paid for her own engagement ring.

That is soooo lame. Even Spencer Pratt paid for Heidi Montag's.

Simon Monjack's response to the
Us Weekly story:

"It is a real tragedy that success, greed, envy and celebrity are the motivation for attacking my family and character."

Ah yes, the classic and oh-so-compelling Britney Spears defense. Blame the press. Suffice it to say, he uses the word "character" loosely.

The Hollywood Gossip can't claim any first-hand knowledge of this shady man's character, but we'll continue reporting what we hear from fans as well as other celebrity gossip publications. Revelations like these may only be the beginning.

As the world shows love to this year's second place finisher on American Idol, Blake Lewis, the runner-up from last season is feeling awfully lonely.

We don't know why. Katharine McPhee is quite gorgeous and talented.

Idols Giving Back

While scores of American Idol alums turned out to partake in this year's season finale, McPhee was as absent from the festivities as Britney Spears is from any semblance of normalcy.

Although fellow Season 5 competitors Elliot Yamin, Kellie Pickler, Taylor Hicks and Chris Daughtry all returned for guest spots this season, McPhee was missing from the rundown â€" and it was not by choice.

"Katharine called them herself, trying to get on the [finale]," a source close to the singer tells Us Magazine. "She's really hurt."

Not as hurt as Aubrey O'Day probably is that we compared her to an Oompa Loompa. But still.

Of course, Kat wasn't the only former Idol who got dissed. When Sony/BMG president Clive Davis addressed the TV audience, he made sure to plug Hicks' new single, but failed to mention Kelly Clarkson's latest single or her forthcoming CD, My December, over which the two have reportedly butted heads.

McPhee's rep could not be reached and Fox had no comment, but we want McPhee to know that she's welcome to perform on any concert sponsored by The Hollywood Gossip.

The next one scheduled is the Lindsay Lohan Rehab Rock 'n Roll Fest.

Bobby Brown, whose divorce from Whitney Houston became final in April, is back to his old ways.

No, actually we don't mean not paying child support.

We're talking about him macking on the ladies!

"I'm dating, so it's not like I'm single," Brown, 40, told People at Stereo by the Shore in Southampton, N.Y. on Saturday.

How profound. Thank you, Bobby Brown. In related news, Britney Spears is, like, at rock bottom, y'all, so it's not like she's on cloud nine.

Asked whom he was dating, the frequently-jailed "My Prerogative" singer replied, "My friend," and looked over at the woman holding his hand.

And it wasn't Karrine Steffans holding his hand, people.

A source at the club identified Brown's companion as Alicia Etheridge. A second source close to the singer confirmed to People that he is indeed dating Etheridge.

Alicia Etheridge's claim to fame, besides combining the names of other famous people Melissa Etheridge and Alicia Silverstone, is being past president of the M. Gray Music Academy, Macy Gray's after-school music program.

"They were kissing in the car," says a source who observed the cute couple before they headed into the club, where besides his signature song, Bobby Brown also performed "Every Little Step."

The pair - who apparently got together this month, a source says - stayed at the event until 3 a.m. and did in the club what they were doing in the car: kissing.

Gross as this is, it's a lot better than what Lindsay Lohan does in the car. We're talking about drinking and drugs!

Another day, another introspective, philosophical letter to fans from the incomparable mess known only as Britney Spears.

On her website Tuesday, Britney Spears is telling fans that she was "so lost" during the months following her divorce.

Britney Spears' Rack

In the message, the 25-year-old mother of two says that she doesn't think that alcohol or depression were to blame for her stint in rehab.

No, of course not. That never has anything to do with it. Right, Lindsay Lohan?

Rather, the former Mrs. Kevin Federline claims she was "like a bad kid running around with ADD" and goes on to thank her fans for supporting her during those turbulent months.

"I am only human people and I love you for still loving me," she writes, apparently eschewing punctuation, grammar and spelling at will.

She adds that she feels "truly blessed" for having sons, Sean Preston, 20 months, and Jayden James, 8 months, in her life.

Here's Britney Spears' entire letter below:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I just wanted to reach out to all of you and explain some of the things that I have been faced with recently.

It's so funny how many stories are put out there about people. It's like we all want our side of the story out there as well, but at the end of the day only a few people care to hear what is really going on since the bad is always so much more interesting than the truth. I don't know why, but this is so weird to me.

I used to be angry at the tabloids for printing horrible things about me, but now I try to just be numb to what I see. I saw Tyra Banks once get really upset and cry on her show because they made her look fat. We all want a certain image of ourselves out there, and at some point we all do really care what other people think or we wouldn't be here.

Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom. Till[sic] this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD. I had a manager [Larry Rudolph] from a long time ago come in and try to direct me and my life after I got my divorce.
