Because our standard weekly recaps are clearly not enough to quench your thirst for The Bachelor gossip, commentary and insight, The Hollywood Gossip's own Bachelor Babe will be sharing her thoughts on each exciting episode with us as well.

Here's her take on Jason Mesnick and his five (now four) remaining ladies after Monday's trip to his native Seattle, where burning questions left J sleepless ...

On this episode of Jason Plus Five... Wait wait wait wait wait - First scene of Jason is on a houseboat?!!?!?!? 

That CANNOT be where he lives - it has to be made up, right?

The producers are just trying to recreate Sleepless in Seattle – I totally see right through that plot device. Well, I have news for you producers, it won’t work because we all know Jason doesn’t like blondes. The only girl that comes even close to the cuteness of Meg Ryan is Molly with her adorable little giggle. Okay, I’m totally right! Nine minutes later the announcer says “Burning questions leave Jason sleepless” - leave it to the rest of us to add “in Seattle.”

Anyway, after 30 minutes of recap and random shots of Jason and the girls, the episode actually starts. Melissa Rycroft gets the first one-on-one date, with a hand delivered letter from Jason who tells her not to open it 'til he leaves. When he leaves (approximately three seconds later) Melissa opens the note which says, “Let’s hit the town in style, J.”

Which part of that couldn’t be read in front of him??

Turns out the date is canceled so Jason can spend the evening with Ty (awwww), so Melissa goes to Jason’s house and proceeds to… clean up Jason and Ty’s leftovers. Nice, Jason. Remind us again what you’re looking for in a spouse?? Like any neglected housewife, Melissa pours herself a glass of wine and sits on the couch waiting for her man to show her some attention.

Will Melissa Rycroft embrace playing housewife with The Bachelor?

Next, Stephanie, Jillian and Molly get the group date and head to a harbor cruise, where Jason promises to show them “The Best of Seattle” (isn’t that a coffee slogan?).

He chooses this moment to bring up Sleepless in Seattle again, when they motor past the houseboat where Tom Hanks lived in the movie. Jason pulls Stephanie aside for alone time, but you don’t really see any spark between them.

On the set of 90210 last week, tragedy nearly struck:

A moderate gust of wind almost carried star Shenae Grimes away.

Fortunately, as seen below, the thin actress grabbed a hold of her trailer and held on for dear life. Phew. That was a close one.

Don't let go, Shenae! (Also, eat a cheeseburger!)

YAWN. Even traveling the globe and living the life of an A-list celebrity baby gets old after awhile. Suri Cruise looks rather unimpressed while on a shopping trip with mom Katie Holmes in Brazil, where they've accompanied Tom Cruise.

Tom's promoting Valkyrie. Suri's just bored ...

When Jessica Simpson decided to be an actress a few years ago, she was at her peak, both as a singer and as a good-looking person. While her big-screen debut was by no means decent, it earned a decent amount of money.

Since then, her films have followed a clear pattern, concluding with her most recent effort. Which is ironic, because as her body has ballooned, her movies' box office revenues seem to have done the reverse. See below:

  • The Dukes of Hazzard (2005): $80 million
  • Employee of the Month (2006): $28 million
  • Blonde Ambition (2007): $1,300 (yes, that's correct)
  • Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous (a.k.a. Major Movie Star, 2008): released direct to DVD!
  • Fat
  • No Comment

Maybe Jessica Simpson should just stick to singing. Actually, maybe that isn't the best alternative either. Full-time professional football jinx? [Photos: Splash News Online]

Note to Zac Efron:

You are very, very, very good looking.

Rihanna in Vogue

There's no reason to mess with this cuteness by overly accessorizing.

The High School Musical actor made such a mistake when he was caught wearing a fedora in public the other day. At least we think so.

Do you agree?

What do you think of Zac Efron's fedora?

From 147 to 36.

That's the number of contestants that were approved for Hollywood this season, along with the number that will advance to this season's final 36.

Following last night's first set of American Idol auditions in the city, we can name two locks for the top 36 already; and perhaps even the top 12.

Lil Rounds, for starters, received a standing ovation after belting out "I Will Always Love You." Check out the incredible vocals now:

Next up, watch Stephen Fowler discuss the butterflies in his stomach, only to overcome them and impress the judges with a smooth, controlled audition:

Think Fowler has top 12 potential? What about Jorge Nunez and Danny Gokey? Those were the other two crooners that stood out last night.

Let us know who you think is mostly likely to still be singing in May!

One of the shadiest characters ever to appear on this and other celeb gossip sites, Sam Lutfi, has filed a lawsuit against Britney Spears and her parents.

The Evil One is suing Team Britney for libel, defamation and battery, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract.

According to the court papers filed today, the baddest of the bad seeds claims that Britney's parents, Jamie and Lynn Spears, have "launched a campaign of lies and intimidation designed to destroy Sam Lutfi and drive him out of Britney's life."

In the lawsuit, Sam claims he was standing in Britney's kitchen on January 29, 2008 when Jamie stormed into the house. Lutfi alleges Jamie yelled at him, claiming Sam made a rude comment to Lynne the night before.

Then, the alleged former manager says claims, Jamie Spears "intentionally punched him in the chest" and threatened to kill him if he ever heard Sam make a rude comment about Lynne or any member of Britney Spears' family again.

Britney Spears and the seedy one during his 2007 reign of terror.

All the claims of libel and defamation spring from Lynne Spears' memoir, Through the Storm, which was published last year. Lutfi says since the publication of the book, he "has been subjected to unfathomable amounts of ridicule and public scorn."

In the book, Lynne insinuated that Lutfi was an unstable, disreputable, manipulative, controlling and dangerous individual, even drugging the star at one point.

Lutfi also claims Britney Spears broke a contract with him, therefore owing him unpaid management fees. He claims he had an oral agreement with the pop singer to be her manager for four years, earning 15 percent commission.

Last Friday, Britney was granted a restraining order against Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib, barring them from having any contact with her, her parents or her kids.

As has become her custom, Whitney Port has posted some thoughts on last night's episode of her new reality TV show, The City, on her official website.

Last night's episode was called "The Truth Hurts," and for Whitney's model pal Allie - who was at the center of a messy breakup last week - it sure did.

Here's what Whitney Port had to say  ...

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

Hey guys. So the major drama that went down in last night's episode wasn't based around relationships this time, but around body image.

Kelly Cutrone was in town for her birthday so I thought it might be fun to take the girls to her party, which might have been a bit of a mistake.

I warned them that Kelly could be a bit intimidating and in your face at times, and she definitely lived up to those expectations.

While we were sitting at a table with Kelly, she immediately launched in on Allie's tiny frame, telling her she was too skinny and asking if she needed help. Allie was so offended by the attack that she got up and left the party.

Body image issues are something that every girl today inevitably has to deal with - not by choice or habit, but by an unknown factor we must face and in turn conquer.

It is not easy to be confident in this day and age and accept what our internal makeup has planned. Nor is it easy to neglect the indulgences that make life so tasteful.

Kim Kardashian has successfully been dating a professional football player for over a year.

So, why couldn't sister Khloe Kardashian make it work with NBA guard Rashad McCants?

Khloe Kardashian in Dallas

"It's easier to date a football player for sure," Khloe said to People Magazine over the weekend. "Football players have one game a week, and they practice every day, but they're all at home.... [basketball players] have 82 games a year in their season, and I work so much... It just wasn't as fun as it should have been."

It also doesn't help when you resemble former WWE star Chyna. We're just sayin.

Khloe Kardashian seems like a perfectly nice person. But her resemblance to Joanie Laurer can't go unnoticed.

In a few months, Bobby Brown will be able to field a basketball team with his set of children.

The singer and longtime girlfriend Alicia Etheridge are expecting a baby, Brown's agent Ravi Dabiesingh told Us Weekly. It will be the fifth for the singer.

"Yes, Bobby is expecting his fifth child from Alicia," Dabiesingh said. "There aren't too many details out there right now, but we do know he is very excited, as Bobby is big on family. The sex of the baby is not known yet, and we can confirm she is four months along."

Brown split with Whitney Houston in 2006. They have one daughter, 15-year-old Bobbi Kristina. He also has a trio of kids from other relationships: Landon, LaPrincia and Bobby Jr.
