Brooke Burke feels good about her final performance on Dancing with the Stars.

"I feel like we've done everything we needed to do this season," she told Us Weekly, following a combined score of 58 on her and Derek Hough's two routines last night. "And no matter what happens on the show - tonight, we can go home, and I feel like we won."

Dancing to Victory?

Meanwhile, former contestant Joey Fatone has dissed Kim Kardashian for unknown reasons.

In an interview with The New York Post, the boy bander said the competition is "not just about dancing. It’s about personality, too. And that Kim Kardashian, ugh, she has no personality at all. It was painful to watch.”

Many people feel the same way about Fatone's reality show-hosting career.

"This is going to be the album that cements her legend status." - Britney Spears' manager, Larry Rudolph, on Circus

With no end in sight, the comeback tour of a fallen star rages on, with one promotional photo, documentary clip and magazine article after another.

As Barack Obama rolls in his grave, the resurgent Britney Spears graces the December 2008 cover of Rolling Stone, which proclaims "Yes She Can!"

What did she do exactly? It's a little unclear. She's a pop singer and she's putting out another album. That's what she's supposed to do, right?

Hype aside, there's little doubt Britney has come a long way from a year ago, when she was committed to a psychiatric ward involuntarily. Twice.

With papa Jamie Spears now calling ALL the shots for her, interviewing the star is a "rigorously micromanaged process," according to Rolling Stone.

"We were never left alone together, and my questions had to be submitted ahead of time for approval," reporter Jenny Eliscu says of profiling Brit.

In the interview, Spears describes her "old lady" existence, laments some recent dating debacles, and reportedly criticizes K-Fed for teaching Sean Preston and Jayden James foul language. Seriously. This article ought to be good.

Former NFL star quarterback Michael Vick pleaded guilty Tuesday to a state dogfighting charge, which ironically will help him become eligible for an early release from federal prison and hasten his return to pro football.

Vick pleaded guilty to one charge and not guilty to a second that was then dropped. The former Atlanta Falcons QB was handed a three-year suspended sentence.

"I want to apologize to the court, my family, and to all the kids who looked up to me as a role model," said Vick, who arrived via police escort and in shackles.

Vick's mother Brenda Boddie, brother Marcus Vick and fiancee Kijafa Frink were all on hand. Michael is serving a 23-month sentence in Leavenworth, Kansas.

Michael Vick is scheduled for release from federal prison on July 20, 2009.

Federal law prohibits prisoners from being released to a halfway house if there are unresolved charges against them - the primary reason for his Virginia plea.

Since the conviction, Mike Vick has filed for bankruptcy after losing nearly all of the earnings from his record-breaking $130 million contract he signed in 2004.

Vick was convicted of the federal charges in August 2007 when he admitted bankrolling a dogfighting operation at a home he owned in Virginia's Surry County.

He also admitted to participating in the killing of several underperforming dogs, and it was also learned that he forced domestic animals to participate in fights.

Madonna is reportedly furious that Alex Rodriguez dropped out of Kabbalah training because he was "bored," according to celebrity news reports.

The 50-year-old singer - whose divorce from Guy Ritchie was granted last week - has so far failed in her attempts to get rumored new boyfriend to share her deep level of interest in Kabbalah, a mystical off-shoot of Judaism.

This report comes in spite of the fact that A-Rod reportedly told a friend earlier this year that Madonna is his "f*%king soulmate, dude." What a loser.

Alex split with wife Cynthia Rodriguez a few months ago. Since then, his relationship with the singer has reportedly gotten physical. But for how long?

What A Rod

A source at New York's Kabbalah Center, where the New York Yankees star had been attending private classes with spiritual leader Eitan Yardeni, said:

"He hasn't even finished Kabbalah 1 (the introduction to Kabbalah) and the majority of the time he spent with Yardeni so far was for counseling, not study."

Madonna - whose efforts to make Guy Ritchie interested in the religion failed after the director branded it "weird" and "hokum" - is said to be considering whether to proceed in her relationship with A-Rod as a result of his indifference.

A source told MSNBC:

"This is certainly off-putting to Madonna. She did drag Guy into Kabbalah, she's doing the same with Alex. But he's bored. He's basically a Kabbalah dropout."

Best. Episode. Ever. The Hills was in rare form last night, and our recap, as always, will consist of our staff awarding and deducting points as it sees fit.

Holly Montag is still, like, totally sad about the way things went down with Heidi. Spencer is still a jerk. Meanwhile, Audrina thinks Lauren hooked up with Justin-Bobby - and both J-Bobby and LC are far from pleased about her accusations.

On to the rankings! Chime in with your own!

Audrina tells Chiara that Dino (Dina?) told her about the Lauren-Justin hookup. Minus 2 because Audzo has no friends with normal names, and Minus 3 more for the "detail" of the hookup she refers to not being explained. Peeps wanna know!

Would anyone be surprised if Lo Bosworth started the rumor? That would be classic, diabolical Lo. But she sort of said nothing throughout. Minus 1.

Spencer Pratt calls Holly Montag "Little Miss Traitor." Plus 4, because he probably could think up a much better nickname/insult, but we all know he's lazy.

Heidi has been relegated to a cubicle at work, rather than the posh office she used to have. After her fake firing, of course. Plus 7 for the general ridiculousness of this, and Plus 2 more for Spencer smirking about it when she complains.

We rant about the lag between real time events and The Hills so much it's passe, but this episode aired a few hours after we learned about Heidi and Spencer eloping. They're married! It's hard to take minor fight #378 as seriously now. Minus 2.

It's hard to tell what bugs Lauren Conrad more - being the subject of a false rumor, or that said rumor involved her and a revolting human being. As IF! Plus 4.

Audrina Patridge leaves a rambling, pathetic, borderline-stalker voicemail for Justin. Minus 4 for her being such a loser. Somehow, Justin-Bobby was the more collected, mature individual at the bar later. Didn't see that coming. Plus 7.

Anybody else missing Brody Jenner? Just asking. Minus 2.

The editing of the Audrina-Lauren drama was a bit off. LC is never shown denying the hookup, yet we learn later that both she and J-Bob did so initially. It's like we're being manipulated and this "reality" show isn't 100 percent real. Minus 3.

Minus 3 for the staged Stephanie Pratt scene in which she's clearly being fed lines. But Plus 6 for the similar Casey Patridge scene, because she tells it like it is.

Finally, it comes out: Lauren Conrad said she'd "rather die" than hook up with Justin-Bobby, who's "disgusting." She said this to Audrina's face. Wow. Plus 14 for the utter harshness, honesty, buildup and inevitability of that statement. And Plus 3 more for "You're way worse than Heidi." Talk about adding insult to injury!

TOTAL: +27. Vintage Hills. Bravo, all. Leave a comment with your own scores!

Zac Efron should retire from life right now. It simply won't get any better.

The shaggy-haired actor is the face of a billion-dollar movie franchise, is dating adorable co-star Vanessa Hudgens and is in the process of expanding his big screen resume to include more mature fare.

Oh, and the best looking woman on the face of the planet has a crush on him.

Zac Efron is my obsession, we’re the same person,” Megan Fox recently said. “We’re not actually here, it’s like Janet and Michael Jackson. He just puts on his wig and a dress, and it’s me, and you don’t know that. It’s one of the greatest mysteries of all time."

We have no idea what Fox is talking about. But when you look like that, you can pretty much say anything you want.

They tried to make her go to the hospital and she said 'yes, yes, yes.' Sorry, that joke wasn't even good the first time - and this is like the 25th time.

Amy Winehouse has checked back into a London hospital, her second stay in less than a month, to get treated for "a bad reaction to some medication."

Steppin' Out

Her spokesman said the star was admitted Sunday after suffering an allergic reaction and is undergoing tests and will remain there for observation.

Three weeks ago, A-Dubs spent several days in the hospital for a chest infection. Before that, the 25-year-old crooner spent a pair of weeks there in June after she was told she might die. Tests showed early signs of emphysema.

Seriously. That happened. She's 25. Emphysema. Good Lord.

Amy Winehouse made another pit stop a month later after suffering a bad reaction to some medication she had been taking to kick her drug habit.

No word how long she'll remain hospitalized this time.

Meanwhile, Amy's husband Blake Fielder-Civil is out of jail bit remanded to a rehab facility. No word on whether he is really shagging Sophie Schandorff.

Selena Gomez is confident that Ashlee Simpson's son will grow up to be just like her husband, Pete Wentz.

The singer told Us Weekly that Bronx Mowgli will be the "cutest punk rock kid ever," adding that "he's going to be so well dressed."

Let's hope so. Perhaps that fashion taste will distract people from Bronx's name.

Selena Gomez is gaga over Bronx Mowgli.

If America votes the way the judges scored last night, Brooke Burke will go down as the first-ever Dancing with the Stars champion to have posed for Playboy. Twice.
