Jennifer Hudson's estranged brother-in-law William Balfour, who was arrested this week in the October murders of her mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew, has been formally charged with the crimes after getting arrested yesterday.

He has been charged with three counts of first degree murder and one count of home invasion. Cops say Balfour hasn't confessed to the crime, despite prior reports he did. But they also say he has "talked about the investigation."

The 27-year-old is expected to held without bail at a hearing tomorrow, but says he "did not commit these crimes," his lawyer was quoted as saying.

"The delay between the crimes and his actual arrest shows weakness in the case," Joshua Kutnick said, despite Balfour being a person of interest from the start.

"This case is not a strong case against William. He is a convenient suspect."

William Balfour was transferred from an Illinois state prison – where he has been held on suspicion of a parole violation – back into police custody.

Jennifer Hudson's mother Darnell Donerson, 57, brother Jason Hudson, 29, and Balfour's own stepson, Julian King, 7, were slain last month. Balfour is married to, but separated from Hudson's sister Julia, the mother of Julian.

Chuck Wicks might soon become the first man to ever see Julianne Hough nude.

The famous virgin, and absolutely gorgeous Dancing with the Stars competitor, recently said she and the country music crooner are considering marriage.

At the Airport

"We definitely want to go there," Hough told People Magazine of the prospect of wedding her boyfriend of five months. "The minute we met it was perfect. The first date we had we both had that feeling like we were going to fall in love with each other."

Chuck Wicks might soon become Mr. Julianne Hough, and earn the jealousy of men around the world in the process.

The aspiring singer - Hough says "maybe I'll come back next season [to Dancing with the Stars], maybe I won't," due to her burgeoning career behind the microphone - said she took Wicks home with her for Thanksgiving.

And how did it go?

"He's definitely part of the family. Everybody loves him to death," Hough said. "He's as big of a dork as we are."

Shauna Sand claims she was choked, punched and thrown across a room in front of her kids - and the bastard behind the alleged beatings is her own husband.

The former Playmate received a temporary restraining order against Romain Chavent yesterday, filing documents in L.A. County Superior Court.

Sand alleges, with grammatical inaccuracy, that this weekend, her French hubby "hit me in the breasts, which I just had reconstructive surgery."

Shauna also says Romain once "threatened to sell nude photos of my children that he took of them when he was babysitting." Yeah. Real normal.

Shauna also claims in March 2008, Romain Chavent punched her in the stomach and threw her into a wall. In 2007, Romain allegedly strangled, punched and threw Sand across the room. Sand was granted a restraining order but later dropped it.

Romain has made accusations of his own - filing for a restraining order against Shauna in April because he claimed she threatened to ruin his life.

That claim was later dismissed. Shauna Sand was granted another court order that will remain in effect until the next hearing on December 22.

The incomparable Britney Spears celebrated her 27th birthday Tuesday morning under the big top - and before the TV cameras - on ABC's Good Morning America.

Dressed as a (sexy!) ringmaster, our girl made a dramatic entrance atop a huge wagon, flanked by clowns, jugglers and performers dressed as circus animals.

In her first live effort in over a year, Britney Spears brought her A-game, lip-synching her way through the title track to her new album, Circus, with flying colors ...

In other news, Britney Spears' tour dates have been announced. You can see a show like the one previewed above for the low, low price of $158.50 for a good seat.

And here we thought consumer spending was down and Americans were cutting back. The Hollywood Gossip officially declares the U.S. economic recession over.

Lindsay Lohan has never exactly admitted to a relationship with Samantha Ronson.

Still, the actress is now speaking out against rumors that the pair has broken up.

Lindsay Lohan Smiling

On her most recent MySpace blog, Lohan responds to gossip that her and the British DJ are no longer a couple:

Oy vey! Rumors. Just to clear this up, because I have been getting a lot of emails asking me this one question: Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan (me) are NOT breaking up.

Raise your hand if you're involved in a surprisingly stable relationship, same sex relationship!

Beware, Joe Jonas!

If there's one young stud that could steal away your beautiful new girlfriend, Camilla Belle, he's pictured laughing with her below.

Pattinson at the Piano

Twilight star Robert Pattinson was spotted strolling the sidewalks of Venice, California earlier this week with the actress, as the pair proceeded to stop for lunch together at Three Square Bakery on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Does this mean Belle has moved on from Jonas? And, if so, would Pattinson be an upgrade or a downgrade?

In the new, blockbuster movie Twilight, Kristen Stewart's character falls in love with a vampire.

In real life, however, this actress' heart belongs to actor Michael Angarano (pictured below, right). The pair has been dating for the past few months.

Kristen, Robert and Taylor

As for Stewart's scorching hit professional life, she says Twilight’s sequel, New Moon, could start filming as early as March 2009. Director Catherine Hardwicke agrees, recently telling MTV:

“I would say that the film could be finished by the end of 2009, if not the beginning of 2010; cameras could be rolling in about five months."

Did you see Twilight? What did you think of it?

Anyone that has seen the Kim Kardashian sex tape knows this reality TV star likes to bang.

Based on her new haircut, though, it appears as though Kim also likes bangs in general.

The socialite revealed a new hairstyle at last night's "Empowerment for Africa" dinner in New York City, saying she was a "little freaked out" by the new 'do.

What do you think?

Nothing But Cleavage

What do you think of Kim's new hairstyle?

Last week set the bar pretty high, but The Hills was still solid last night. As always, our recap will consist of us awarding and deducting points as we see fit.

Audrina Patridge is, like, still a mess over the scandalous Lauren Conrad-Justin-Bobby hookup that didn't actually happen. She doesn't know what to do next. Meanwhile, Speidi pays a visit to his Nana, and Spencer rips Stephanie a lot.

On to the rankings! Chime in with your own!

One second after showing up, Spencer Pratt rips Stephanie for decorating her kitchen like a bathroom. It's like he was determined to fire off an insult at the first possible opportunity and that's what he saw. Plus 3.

Obligatory Minus 5 for Heidi Montag's Times Square hooker / clubbing makeup. In broad daylight. At lunch with a nice old lady, no less. Tramp.

Whitney Port tells LC she's still in touch with Jay Lyon, who writes "xo" after, like, every sentence when they text. OMG, so cute, mate. Plus 7.

My, Casey Patridge was wearing a colorful top in this episode. Oh, wait, those are just her tats. Plus 4. And Plus 2 more for her wise words.

Audzo ranted non-stop about Justin-Bobby, yet the dirtbag did not actually appear last night. Normally, this would be cause for celebration, but in this case his mumbled, idiotic remarks would have fostered even more drama. So Minus 4.

Audrina Patridge sort of admits that she jumped to conclusions and treated Lauren unfairly over this, but then cops a pathetic excuse, "I don't even know who I am anymore" rather than just moving on. OMG, grow up, girl. Minus 9.

Not just a Brody Jenner sighting. A shirtless Brody Jenner sighting. Plus 16. And Plus 5 more for is query to LC about "banging Justin-Bobby."

Speaking of the great BJ, that promo for Bromance was comically bad. But come on, we know we're gonna watch that and The City. Plus 5.

Anyone else think Nana is kind of sweet? Maybe Spencer's adopted. Plus 3.

Stephanie says Spencer wouldn't be Nana's "favorite" if she knew more about him. Riiight. Spencer has actually talked about Nana on numerous occasions in celebrity gossip tabloids! She has a scrapbook! Nice try, Steph. Minus 4.

TOTAL: +21. Leave a comment with your own scores!

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were all smiles and looked like the perfect, blissful wedded couple as they returned to Los Angeles from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Wedding rings? Not present!

Speidi reportedly tied the knot, eloping spontaneously in Cabo San Lucas (where they had been spending a regular, romantic vacation), on November 20.

The two held hands and walked to a waiting limousine. When asked about the ceremony, Spencer Pratt said, "I recommend getting married to anyone."

No comment on whether they are technically married in the U.S., if another (legal) wedding is planned, or just how "spontaneous" their elopement was.
