Reporters live in front of the cameras - on their own terms.

But the Erin Andrews 911 call to report two photographers parked outside her house in suburban Atlanta shows just how uncomfortable her situation is now.

Andrews describes herself as "the girl that was videotaped in a hotel naked" and expressed frustration about being treated like "f*%king Britney Spears."

Sounding totally in control and absolutely helpless at the same time, the hotel video target is exceedingly polite, yet swearing like a sailor a minute later.

Seconds before almost breaking into tears, Erin playfully tells her mom that she's "totally being obvious" as they're trying to get a license plate number.

These contradictions are fitting, in a way, for a story that is full of them.

So many people want to make the scandal a black and white issue: Andrews is a victim, she brought it on herself, blame bloggers, blame the Internet, etc.

There are no simple answers, however. Just because Erin Andrews cultivated her sex appeal to make her the most popular sideline reporter in America doesn't mean she somehow deserved to be the subject of a nude hotel peephole video.

But even as she is calling the police about paparazzi stationed outside of her house, it was just weeks ago that Andrews was openly campaigning for a spot on Dancing With the Stars, a move that invited attention on a celebrity level.

There's no grand lesson to be learned here, just another sad, cautionary tale about the perils of fame. Oddly enough, Britney Spears can probably relate.

Listen to Erin's 911 call below ...

Brazilian police now say boxer Arturo Gatti hanged himself with a bag strap that he tied around a wooden staircase column seven feet off the ground.

Milena Saraiva, a spokeswoman for police in the northeastern city of Recife, says police first thought Gatti was strangled by wife Amanda Rodrigues.

They were led to believe this because his body was found on the floor.

Amanda Carine Barbosa Rodrigues was arrested but will not be charged.

An autopsy report indicated Gatti was suspended off the ground for three hours early July 11, however. An analysis found marks on the staircase column.

Arturo Gatti was found several hours later by his 23-year-old Brazilian wife, Amanda Rodrigues, who had been held in custody but was freed yesterday.

Police officially ruled the former welterweight champion's death a suicide.

The feud between Rachelle Lefevre and Summit Entertainment is only just beginning.

Rumors of a lawsuit between the actress and the movie studio are brewing, as the former feels like she was unfairly fired from the Twilight Saga.

When asked about the controversial switcheroo (Bryce Dallas Howard will now play Victoria in Eclipse and Breaking Down), Christian Serratos - who portrays Bella friendl Angela Weber in the franchise - said she wasn't pleased with the situation.

“It saddened me to hear about Rachelle and she greatly missed,” Christian Serratos told OK! magazine. ”Although under these circumstances, I am excited to work with Bryce and can’t wait to start filming!”

Fans can't wait to start watching, either. Or will this casting change affect your excitement over Eclipse?

Do you care that Rachelle Lefevre was fired from the Twilight Saga?

Reid Rosenthal, the third runner-up on The Bachelorette who shocked viewers after returning to the show, getting down on one knee and proposing to Jillian Harris on Monday's season finale - is still hurting over his rejections.

"I thought I was the best guy with her," he said. "I knew I wanted to spend tomorrow [with her]. I wasn't 100 percent sure we were going to get married in six months or a year, but I knew she was someone I wanted to spend a lot of time with."

"I actually thought that my relationship with Jillian was 50 times better than the other guys. I thought it was my job to come back and get her."

Reid Rosenthal adds that if he had admitted his love for Jillian earlier, she would have eliminated Kiptyn Locke in the penultimate episode, not him.

"At this point, I had strong feelings for her, but like I said at the [After the Final Rose] taping, everything happens for a reason," says Rosenthal. "That helps me have some closure right there. Everything works the way it is supposed to work out."

Ready to date again “pretty soon - immediately,” Reid Rosenthal admits that his recent modicum of celebrity has certainly been a hit with the ladies.

“It’s insane! I thought it was just in Philly but now I’m out in L.A. and I was hanging out by the pool minding my own business and every single person came up to me and wanted to take pictures with me,” a bewildered Reid recalls.

“When people come up, they are like, ‘We feel so bad.’ Two months have gone by now, so I’m a little more detached than when I first got back.”

As for Jillian Harris, Rosenthal says he has nothing but the best of wishes for her and Ed Swiderski: “If she’s happy, I’m happy for her,” he says.

Lastly, Reid, who was able to return the ring he bought for Harris, is not sure if he’d like to be the next Bachelor, should that opportunity arise.

“The upside is that you have 25 girls coming after you, which can never be a bad thing. I trust the process at this point even if it is a little unnatural and you have to get to know somebody faster than you typically would,” he said.

“The downside is it is a ton of work. With real estate being so busy now, it’d be hard for me to figure out how to keep my business and do that.”

Who should be the next Bachelor?

In case you were wondering, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are sisters. Not saints.

The official poster for Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami makes this distinction clear, as the less well-known siblings of Kim Kardashian get totally photoshopped pose seductively on a boat and hype their upcoming E! series.

It premieres on August 16. We'd be more likely to tune in if the title of the show was more apt, alliterative or simply less dumb. Something along the lines of...

  • Kourtney and Khloe Go Klubbing
  • Kourtney and Khloe Tag-Team Miami
  • Kourtney and Khloe Konsider Their Useless Lives, Often Sunbathe
  • Kourtney and Khloe Stoop to Any Attention-Grabbing Level to Get Out of Their Sister's Shadow

Can you kome up with any better name for this ridiculous reality series?

Megan Fox has a message for the public:

Stop comparing me to a widely-respected humanitarian and Oscar-winning actress!

Sick of how often critics and magazines mention her in the same breath as Angelina Jolie, Fox told Fox News this week:

"I think [it's] a lack of creativity on the media’s part. I think it’s cause she has tattoos really.... I am a brunette with tattoos, I curse and I have made mention of sex before... Everybody is the new somebody although none of us are any of those people, so you just walk around with it, you live with it.”

Must be a tough burden to shoulder, Megan. We're really sorry. We have no idea why this comparison would ever be made. Not at all...

  • Megan Fox Nude

Gee, from where would anyone get the idea that Megan Fox resembles Angelina Jolie?!?

Eminem has once again gone back to the seemingly endless well of celebrity disses and pulled out a new diatribe directed at Mr. and Mrs. Nick Cannon.

The reason (not that he's ever needed one) - he's firing back at Mariah Carey's recent Slim Shady-channeling video for her single, "Obsession."

In "The Warning," Eminem raps:

"I got the exact same tattoo that's on Nick's back, I'm obsessed now, oh gee, is that supposed to be me in the video with the goatee?"

He goes on to gloat about the time Mariah "was wild 'n' out before Nick" and when he himself gave Carey "somethin' to smile about." Wow.

This all started, we think, because Carey has made light of her reported relationship with Eminem back in 2001, and the rapper is clearly pissed.

Eminem gave Carey a shout-out in his recent tune "Bagpipes From Baghdad," which included a pointed suggestion to Cannon to "back the f*%k up."

Cannon responded in May that "homeboy is still obsessed with my wife."

A few days later, Eminem implied to listeners of the satellite radio show he was hosting that he had once urinated on the superstar. On purpose.

Back to Team Cannon. Earlier this year, Carey dressed up like Eminem and poked no small amount of fun at him in her music video for "Obsessed."

Which brings us to "The Warning," in which Eminem scaldingly raps:

"You probably think if I had something on you I woulda did it by now, on the contrary, Mary Poppins, I'm mixing our studio session down and sending it off to mastering to make it loud, enough dirt on you to murder you, this is what the f--k I do..."

"Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures?"

Oh, boy. "But if I'm embarrassing me, I'm embarrassing you and don't you dare say it isn't true," he continues later in the track.

"As long as the song's getting airplay I'm dissing you, I'm a hair away from getting carried away and getting sued, I was gonna stop at 16, this is 32, this is 34 bars, we ain't even a third of the way through."

Bottom line? Don't expect to outlast Eminem in a feud.

Whose side are you on?

The wife of Tom and the mother of Suri Cruise may be joining the cast of the Sex and the City movie sequel, if some recent rumors are to be believed.

Thankfully, the star is not planning to replace Jennifer Hudson as Sarah Jessica Parker's lovestruck personal assistant, nor hooking up with Mr. Big.

We hope.

Word is she's wanted to play a high-powered young businesswoman ready to go toe-to-toe with Kim Cattrall's take-no-prisoners Samantha Jones.

Katie most recently "performed" on So You Think You Can Dance last week. We use that term very loosely, as there was little dancing and no singing in likely the most overhyped, overrated guest appearance in that show's history.

Holmes is also filming the new movie Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark. Do you think she'd be a good addition to the Sex and the City movie sequel?

Possible future couple alert!!!

Call us wishful thinkers, but one look at Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift on the set of Valentine's Day has our brains in full-on fantasy mode.

The teen icons are part of a star-studded cast in the romantic comedy, which opens on February 14, 2010. Others appearing in the movie include Patrick Dempsey, Anne Hathaway, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel and Julia Roberts.

But our focus is entirely on Taylor and Taylor. How could it not be?!?

He's single. She's single. He's cute. She's cute. And they share the same first name!

Wouldn't these two make an absolutely delicious couple? Even more so than Kim Kardashian and Chris Brown...

Cute Co-Stars

Click on the photos below for more shots of Lautner and Swift on set and then let us know: wouldn't you love to see this pair date?

Michael Jackson spent his final hours in Dr. Conrad Murray's bedroom. In his personal physician's bed, as a matter of fact, investigators are saying.

Law enforcement sources say Jackson did not want people going in and out of his room, so he used Murray's bedroom when he received his IV of Propofol.

Michael Jackson Jr. Birth Certificate

Dr. Conrad Murray administered the powerful anesthesia to Jackson - as he was doing almost nightly - hours before he died, as the singer lay in his bed.

Emergency workers found an IV stand, an empty IV bag and oxygen tanks in Murray's room. Cops found a secret stash of Propofol and other drugs hidden in a closet connected to Murray's room in their searches after Michael passed away.

At some point, Dr. Conrad Murray left the room when Jackson was receiving an IV drip of Propofol and the doctor may have even fallen asleep. Cops believe by the time he woke, Michael Jackson's heart may have already stopped beating.

Dr. Murray was not in Jackson's house during the day. He would show up in the evening and leave in the morning. Law enforcement believes the doc may have regularly gone there at night to administer Propofol via IV so he could sleep.

Law enforcement officials believe that Dr. Conrad Murray may have discovered Michael Jackson around 9 a.m. on June 25 the day of the singer's death.

One theory cops are working on in their massive manslaughter investigation is that after discovering Jackson either in distress or dead, Dr. Murray called two employees in Houston and told them to remove boxes from his storage unit.

Both women - LaQuisha Middleton and her sister, LaQuanda Price - say Dr. Murray did not call them, but police think that's dubious. The stories of these women conflict. One says a box of needles was retrieved; the other, a chair.

As for what may have been in the boxes, law enforcement is investigating whether Dr. Murray had Propofol delivered to his Houston medical office ... possibly put in his storage unit ... and then FedEx'd to Los Angeles as needed.

Dr. Conrad Murray rented the storage unit April 1 and staff went back on four different occasions before Jackson's death. Law enforcement remains on the hunt for evidence of Propofol when they searched Dr. Conrad Murray's home and offices.

According to the search warrants, authorities were looking for, among other things, "records, shipping orders, distribution lists, use records relating to the purchase, transfer, receiving, ordering, delivery and storage of PROPOFOL."

The warrant also stated officials were looking to prove a number of alleged violations, including "prescribing to an addict" and "excessive prescribing."
