Last night's season finale of The Bachelor was one for the ages.

After making "the hardest decision he's ever had to make," Jason Mesnick bid farewell to Molly Malaney, got down on one knee and proposed to Melissa Rycroft.

Minutes later, in an intimate "After the Final Rose" special, the single dad shocked and angered the show's fans when he abruptly ditched her for Molly Malaney.

That set up tonight's second "After the Final Rose" installment.

Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison recaps the events thus far, then after boring interviews with fans (really) and ousted bachelorettes, updates us on the latest.

First on the hot seat? America's Most Hated, Jason Mesnick himself.

Jason basically spews the same vague BS from last night - he had no choice and felt bad dumping Melissa, but is more in love and better friends with Molly. Zzz.

Jason Mesnick: America's Most Hated

To say this guy is unpopular right now would be an understatement.

Melissa Rycroft declined to appear, but Molly Malaney takes the stage to discuss her relationship with Jason. Things are going well lately. Jason proclaims they're in love, Molly announces she's moving to Seattle, and they make out. Yay.

Finally, Chris announces the new star of The Bachelorette: Jillian Harris!

Are you satisfied by this ending, or just disgusted? Will Jason and Molly last, or will The Bachelor soon extend its futility streak to 0-for-13?

The good news: High School 4 is coming!

The bad news: It will not star Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale or any or the original Wildcats gang.

The next installment in this popular Disney franchise will introduce an entirely new cast of characters, according to Gary Marsh, president of entertainment for Disney Channel.

"In crafting this next iteration, we've challenged the entire creative team to raise the bar again - and create something truly worthy of this extraordinary global phenomenon," Marsh said.

Gabriella and Troy have graduated. It's time for High School Musical fans to welcome a new class.

So, who might anchor High School Musical 4?

Our money is on Matt Prokop. The young actor portrayed Jimmy Zara in the previous installment and has been dubbed by some experts as "the next Zac Efron."

Keep your eye on this rising star, readers.

Finally.

Weeks after Chris Brown "allegedly" used Rihanna's face as his personal speed bag (only to have her inexplicably take him back), a celebrity is calling him out.

Specifically, Usher is slamming Brown over weekend photos that show the troubled 19-year-old singer smiling and riding around on jet skis like a tool in Miami.

In a behind-the-scenes video for Jermaine Dupri's "Living the Life" series, Usher is seen talking about the pictures with some other men in a recording studio.

"I'm a little disappointed," Usher says about the Chris Brown photos.

"After the other photo [of Rihanna's battered face]? C'mon, Chris. Have a little bit of remorse, man. The man's on jet skis? Like, just relaxing in Miami?"

Usher probably wouldn't be buddy-buddy with Chris Brown nowadays.

Brown - who is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday for allegedly assaulting Rihanna February 8 in L.A., unless the D.A. postpones the court date (likely) - and Rihanna were staying at a house owned by Sean "Diddy" Combs on Star Island.

Mr. Tameka Foster was far from pleased with this display.

Although Rihanna wasn't spotted with him, Brown was photographed several times smiling, riding a jet ski and flexing his arm muscles like a total loser.

Both Chris Brown and Rihanna were photographed arriving in L.A. Monday.

You might never look like Halle Berry.

Correction: there's no chance you'll ever look like Halle Berry.

Picking Up Nahla

But now you can smell like the Oscar-winning actress, as she's the latest celebrity to come out with her owen fragrance line. It's accurately titled "Halle by Halle Berry."

“I am passionate about this project, as I’ve always wanted hands-on experience in creating a fragrance that is a true representation of me,” the star said.

He did what he had to do.

That was Jason Mesnick’s explanation for proposing to, then publicly dumping Melissa Rycroft in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney on The Bachelor season finale.

Jason says he would have preferred to have delivered the news to Rycroft off camera, but the contract he signed with The Bachelor’s producers and ABC spelled out that he had to make this painful declaration on national TV.

“That was part of the deal. I signed up for it in my contract. Your relationship is - good and bad - in front of everybody,” says Mesnick. “If I could have, I would have seen Melissa the night before. It killed me. It kills me now.”

After a romantic final date in New Zealand, the single dad, 32, proposed to Melissa Rycroft, 25, in the two-hour season finale of The Bachelor. She was happy.

But on the "After the Final Rose" special, filmed six weeks later but airing just minutes after the finale, he gave a seemingly unsuspecting Melissa the boot.

Moreover, he confessed he still had feelings for Molly Malaney.

Jason Mesnick in the Bachelor Finale

Jason Mesnick ponders his final decision on the finale of The Bachelor ... and how he's going to sleep at night after pulling off the elaborate ratings stunt concocted by ABC.

Supposedly having no idea about this, Molly was then informed by Jason that he just dumped Melissa, and accepted Jason's offer to give it another shot.

Mesnick knows what Bachelor viewers must think of him:

"‘That guy is a jerk.’ ... I’m not proud of what I had to do.”

Offering only a vague explanation of why - which lends credence to the Bachelor spoilers that suggest this was all contrived - Mesnick said only that after The Bachelor cameras stopped rolling, the chemistry with Melissa began to fade.

Reunited Rihanna and Chris Brown have bid adios to Miami Beach, flown to L.A. together and checked in to a Beverly Hills hotel, according to E! News.

Brown is tentatively scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles on Thursday for their February 8 confrontation, but the district attorney has said that the date may be postponed if detectives don't turn over the case soon enough.

As of this morning, prosecutors have yet to see evidence.

There's also the unanswered question of what charge(s) Brown will face or if he'll be more or less let off he hook amid the couple's patching things up.

Since that incident, Rihanna spent solo time in L.A., Mexico and her native Barbados, while Brown traveled to Las Vegas and his Virginia hometown.

Word broke late Friday that the couple was getting back together as they were spending time at Sean "Diddy" Combs' Star Island mansion in Miami.

Over the weekend, the "Disturbia" singer remained out of sight, while Brown, for the first time since his now-infamous arrest, appeared to be less camera shy, jet skiing and acting like a complete tool in the water around Diddy's compound.

Reps for Rihanna and Chris Brown have so far declined comment on the reconciliation, but Rihanna's father, Ronald Fenty, made clear over the weekend that he was behind his daughter, whatever direction her personal life may take.

"I love my daughter with whatever road she takes," he said. "I'm behind her win or lose. I will be supportive. If that's the road she wants to choose, I'm behind her."

Are you? Or should RiRi have booted Chris Brown for good?

Kate Bosworth doesn't vary her diet much. It appears to be one bite of tuna fish per day and that's about it. Sometimes, a Diet Coke may be thrown in there.

The actress sure likes to mix up her hairstyles, though. The celebrity weight loss champ went for a loose, tousled texture for an Art of Elysium benefit in West Hollywood, then switched to an elegant updo at the Vanity Fair Oscars party...

For Lauren Conrad, it looks like a case of life imitating art imitating life ... or whatever you can call The Hills and Laguna Beach.

The reality TV star revealed on her MySpace blog that her new book, L.A. Candy, follows the story of 19-year-old girl named Jane Roberts "who moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality television show."

In the book - which is "loosely inspired" by her own experience - Jane's best friend is named Scarlett and will be joining in her adventures.

We're just hoping there's a Jason Wahler bad-boy type.

L.A. Candy Author

The novel, the first in a three-book series by Lauren Conrad, which is being published for young adults by HarperCollins, will be released June 16.

"Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life," writes Conrad, who's gone through plenty of drama, "but it is in no way calling anyone out."

Adds the cute star, "I've always loved books that I could lose myself in, ones that would transport me to another place, but had characters I could relate to. So, I'm so excited to have this opportunity to write books like that for other readers."
