As she praises her new husband, Melanie Brown is still insulting her ex-boyfriend, Eddie Murphy. It's not hard to read between the bitter lines in an interview this Spice Girl recently gave Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine.

"He is a man [and] I don't think I've had a man before," Brown said of Stephen Belafonte. "Normally I'm the man."

So, what's the best quality of this amazing man? According to Brown, it's the fact that he makes her feel less like a Spice Girl and more like a Spice Lady: "He makes me feel like a woman, a lady."

Will Brown and Belafonte now make like Brangelina and add to their brood (which includes Phoenix, 9, and Angel, 11 months). According to Melanie:

"Definitely. If it had been up to me, I would have had five kids by the age of 20."

Answer: Not with the chicks they picked.

That would be enough to answer that question for us, but ABC insists on airing an entire special about it next month. This will surely offer us some hot footage of some past Bachelor studs, but still. Pretty unnecessary!

When The Bachelor finishes airing each season, only one thing is certain: the final couple breaks up ASAP and goes back to real life.

While updates are often found on the hunky bachelors themselves after the inevitable split, the same cannot be said for the women.

ABC has this decided to shine a light on those forgotten women, giving Matt Grant a glimpse into his future of public humiliation and failure.

On Monday March 10 at 8 p.m., ABC will air the special, The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? During the hour-long special, host Chris Harrison will sit down with and visit some of the memorable bachelors and aspiring trophy wives.

Some stars of The Bachelor (well, one) have achieved lasting romance, while most do not. Some even end up beating the crap out of their chosen partner. So it goes.

In addition to rekindling massive amounts of heartbreak, the special will visit the only happy couple to come out of the series so far, Ryan and Trista Sutter (above) - now featuring an adorable baby boy, Max! Yay!

Fans of last year's epic season of The Bachelor are also in luck as both DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft will offer updates. DeAnna will dish on starring on the newest season of The Bachelorette for ABC, which airs this summer.

All we have to say is that Brad Womack better not show his face. If he does, our staff is gonna go Mary Delgado on his indecisive punk ass.

First, bad plastic surgery. Now, an on-set diva?

Brittany Murphy's stock is plummeting by the day.

Rest in Peace Brittany

According to the New York Post, Murphy is driving the crew on her new movie crazy. Her behavior on the set of Across the Hall has gone from bad to worse, in large part due to Britt's outrageous, diva-like demands.

"She's extremely difficult. When she gets to the set, it comes to a grinding halt. She's so hot and cold, you never know," says a spy.

Wow. We never would have pegged ol' Hot Lips for a prima donna, but this is the celebrity news business. Nothing surprises us anymore.

According to the Post, Brittany Murphy insists on having diagonally cut peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the crusts removed.

"She needs one every hour. It's painstaking - her assistant takes about a half an hour making each one," said one crew member.

Compounding problems is Murphy's ever-present bad seed of a husband, Simon Monjack, who lurks around the set and intervenes so much that producers had to call a meeting to discuss how to deal with him.

That's bad, but we're just surprised Simon Monjack hasn't found a way to liquidate Brittany's bank accounts and flee the country by now.

A photo of Barack Obama donning traditional Muslim attire as a goodwill gesture during an overseas trip has sparked controversy.

The picture, which mysteriously surfaced yesterday, was attributed by The Drudge Report to sources within the campaign of Hillary Clinton.

The site did not reveal who might have released the photo, but it reeks of political fear-mongering. Here's the picture in question...

Barack Obama donned the traditional Muslim garments during a trip to Kenya in 2006. Like many high-ranking U.S. visitors, he received such clothing as a gift.

Obama's father is Kenyan, his mother from Kansas. The senator is Christian and has been a member of Chicago's United Church of Christ for 20 years.

These facts did not stop some Clinton volunteers from circulating e-mails that falsely claimed Barack Obama is a Muslim late last year.

That bogus rumor (which he has worked hard to dispel) and the release of this picture are pathetic ploys to stoke the fears of ignorant Americans.

Hillary Clinton aides also suggested that his drug use as a young man might make him vulnerable to GOP attacks if he were the Democratic nominee.

She makes a point there. Thank goodness Bill Clinton didn't inhale, otherwise he might have left himself vulnerable to GOP attacks. Phew!

How much more shameless and desperate can the former First Lady get? Stay tuned - the proverbial bar just keeps finding a way to go lower.

Sorry, Zac Efron. T.R. Knight is off the market.

The talented Grey's Anatomy actor recently went public with his new boyfriend, Mark Cornelsen, during the 2008 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Sunday night.

The two held hands and looked very happy together. See below:

T.R. Knight came out of the closet after infamously being outed during a fit of rage by former co-star Isaiah Washington, who ended up not being retained by Grey's Anatomy after the conclusion of its third season.

Knight received an Emmy nomination for Grey's Anatomy, while Washington went on to star in Bionic Woman, which got axed. Karma's a bitch.

Previously, Knight had been romantically linked to actor Luke MacFarlane, who went on to date Wentworth Miller of Prison Break fame.

We last showcased a pair of American Idol hopefuls in our celebrity look-alikes feature. Today it's a pair of thespians who have piqued our interest.

Javier Bardem, who just won an Oscar for No Country For Old Men, certainly is a handsome, talented fellow. Not unlike another favorite of The Hollywood Gossip.

Known lately for roles on Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural, Weeds and P.S. I Love You, and for rocking the love life of the beatiful Mary-Louise Parker, Jeffrey Dean Morgan can now add Javier Bardem look-alike to his expanding resume.

With just 20 contestants remaining on the seventh season of American Idol, it's time to chop down the list on our Power Poll.

With that in mind, here are the top five performers so far, according to our crack celebrity gossip staff:

Absolutely the Best

1. Asiah Epperson: We may be in the minority in anointing this singer as the leading contender, but no one else this season combines her poise, looks and vocal range. What a great name, too!

2. David Archuleta: The 17-year old has captured the hearts of America in a way Sanjaya Malakar could only dream about last season: an adorable sensation... who can actually carry a tune! Sign him up now for the finals.

3. Michael Johns: The only knock on this performer is that he's too established to be considered an American Idol. He's 29 old and has already fronted a band called The Rising. No matter to us. The handsome Aussie can wail.

4. Syesha Mercado: Another contestant with a winning name. Syesha has a much bigger voice than that of Epperson, but she's able to control it. Would love to see her tackle a ballad in order to determine full range.

5. Jason Castro: Apologies to Amanda Overmyer and Carly Smithson, either of whom could be in the spot. But Casto deserved props after taking the stage last week with his guitar and delivering a sweet, understated version of the Lovin' Spoonful hit ''Daydream."

Here's a look at the American Idol top 20. Who is your favorite? Leave a comment. Let us know.

Britney Spears saw sons Sean Preston and Jayden James Monday, as her father sought to end a civil rights challenge to his control of her affairs.

The singer's children, 2 and 1, were driven to her Studio House by her ex-husband Kevin Federline's bodyguard for a three-hour visit.

It was the second visitation in three days after Spears' attorneys worked out a structured visitation arrangement with Kevin Federline.

Meanwhile, attorneys for Britney's father, Jamie Spears, filed a round of paperwork in federal court on Monday, urging a judge to end a civil rights challenge to Jamie's control of his daughter's $100 million estate.

If granted, the motion would keep the co-conservatorship in state court.

Jon Eardley, an attorney who claims to represent the pop star, had been asked to file papers in Federal Court by February 22 explaining the civil rights challenge.

Eardley, who we assume is working in cahoots with the shady Sam Lutfi, told the judge on Friday he needed more time to formally file.

In legal documents, Eardley claims that Britney retained him February 12 before her phone was taken away and the line disconnected.

Jon Eardley also continued to maintain that the current conservatorship case in state court violates the singer's constitutional rights.

But the conservatorship attorneys say Eardley, in addition to failing to meet the deadline, has not proven that he qualifies as Britney Spears' attorney, nor has he addressed the most fundamental legal issues in the case.

The conservatorship motion asks that the case be immediately returned to Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz, and that Eardley be forced to reimburse upwards of $43,000 in attorney fees.

While the civil rights issue remains unresolved in federal court, the conservatorship case in state court is stalled. Stay tuned.

Forget that scandalous Zac Efron photo of him canoodling, shirtless, with another guy.

Here's a picture of the High School Musical stud on the set of his upcoming movie, Me and Orson Welles. There's little doubt this will be a major hit with the teenage female demographic, but Zac has got to be careful:

The movie is being shot on the Isle of Man. That can't be a good idea for someone battling gay rumors.

Jennifer Love Hewitt isn't finished talking about the criticism she received for a set of bikini pictures a couple months ago.

"The thing I think is great is when those pictures were taken, no matter what, I had just been asked to marry," says Hewitt, speaking about her recent engagement to Scottish actor Ross McCall, who "loves me just the way I am."

Gorgeous JLH

We support Jennifer Love Hewitt's fight against entertainment news outlets that mocked her body. We do not, however, support this toga-like dress.

If this gorgeous actress ever does change her body, she emphasized to People magazine that it won't be for the celebrity-obsessed media, just for " my health... so I can live a long time and we can have kids and be happy together until we are in our 80s."

That's great and all, Jen. But what the heck are you wearing in the photo above?!?
