Earlier today, Rachelle Lefevre had a great deal to say about the fact that she's been let go from the Twilight Saga.

But when asked by People about the status of her former co-star (who has been replaced as Victoria by Bryce Dallas Howard), Nikki Reed couldn't muster much of an opinion.

"[I] talked to [Rachelle] yet," the actress that plays Roalie Hale in the franchise told the magazine. "I don't know anything about it other than a schedule conflict."

Reed does know a lot about Robert Pattinson, however. She was even rumored to be dating him at one point.

What makes the Edward Cullen portrayer so irresistable?

"Rob is sort of feminine looking and I think young girls like boys that look like women," she said.

Ah, yes. The metrosexual card. Do you agree with this analysis of Robert Pattinson?

Lauren Conrad may be a best-selling author thanks to her debut novel, L.A. Candy, but it looks like her former Hills co-stars Spencer and Heidi Pratt are now angling for their spot on The New York Times best-seller list as well.

The duo will be releasing a book together this fall. The title? How to Be Famous. Spencer posted the news of the book's release on (what else) his Twitter.

"I hope once the Speidi written book How to Be Famous that comes out this fall people will hate less because we shared the blueprint," Spencer Pratt said.

"After How to Be Famous hits stores you will absolutely have no excuse to be jealous of Speidi fame for 'nothing.' Go get your own fame it's easy!"

A Speidi Smooch

Their entry into the world of book publishing is the latest addition to the couple's quest to dominate the world. The duo have not only become reality stars, but both Spencer and Heidi Pratt have embarked on their own music "careers."

Heidi will sing at the Miss Universe Pageant August 23. And Spencer?

"I've always known that I secretly am the hottest rapper in the game," Pratt said. "I'm the white Jay-Z. I'm doing the baller thing. I'm more for the streets."

Sure thing.

Yesterday, the gruesome twosome went shopping for baby clothes at Kitson. But don't worry, Heidi Pratt is not pregnant - she was seen picking out something that said "My Dad's a Hunk," so that rules out it being for her own baby right there.

Click to enlarge more pictures of Heidi and Spencer, doing what they do best (we imagine staging photos and cashing in is an entire chapter in their book):

A former American Idol contestant clams the show is rigged.

We cannot confirm or deny this accusation, but we can report the following series-related news:

Kara DioGuardi is coming back to the judges' table.

Following weeks of rumors and questions about her status, a source told E! News that DioGuardi is on board for season nine.

"Her deal is done. There are no ifs, ands or buts," the insider said. "Done. She will be back."

Does the return of DioGuardi make you happy or sad?

Perhaps a look back at her most memorable, bare-skinned moment on American Idol last season will sway your opinion in one direction or the other...

Hey, wonder what Jon and Kate Gosselin have been up to?

After a month of non-stop celebrity gossip coverage, the stars of Jon & Kate Plus 8 (and their parents) are returning to the airwaves Monday with new episodes.

Exhale. Deep breaths. Relax, you can wait until then.

In the first show back, Kate Gosselin shows Jon what he's been missing - a grating spouse toned bikini body - as she takes their eight children to the ocean.

As for Jon, well, no mention of Hailey Glassman and/or Kate Major, a.k.a. Kate 2.0, his new pair of mediocre, post-divorce play things. Probably for the best.

Check out the preview ...

We hope you're sitting down, residents of the Tweeniverse.

This news is gonna rock your world!

A reliable source has told Moviehole that Zac Efron might star opposite Miley Cyrus in a reboot of the 1950s movie series Gidget.

Those films, and the proposed flick that would feature two of the biggest teen icons on the planet, were based on the 1957 novel, Gidget, the Little Girl with Big Ideas. The novel tracks the adventures of a young woman and her surfing friends on the beach at Malibu.

Very Handsome

O...M...G! Miley Cyrus and Zac Efron might woo one another on screen in the near future.

If this deal goes through, Cyrus would take on the title role, while Efron would play her love interest.

Earlier this month, remember, Miley admitted her crush on Zac. Perhaps Vanessa Hudgens should truly be worried now.

If you could see our staff right now, you'd notice that each of us has taken our hats off.

For what reason?

To salute George Clooney.

The serial dater and beloved bachelor has made no secret of his enjoyment of the single life. Nor should he.

Clooney's latest bed post notch is Italian model Elisabetta Canalis. We've tracked down the following, old modeling shots of the beauty and it's safe to say that, by George, the actor has done it again!

  • Elisabetta Canalis Photo
  • Elisabetta Canalis Pic

Whether she is accentuating her cleavage or dressing as Snow White, Elisabetta Canalis is gorgeous.

"I have now become more fussy about who I date. And in any case my future boyfriend will have to share my bed with [her mini Doberman] Piero, too," Canalis recently told Italian magazine Tu. "Before in love I used to play much more, now I don't want to waste any more time with wrong relationships. I just want someone who can make me find tranquility. I want to get home and find a person who can make me feel good."

Lord knows Clooney can do that!

Sure, it's kind of the nature of The Bachelorette, but Anderson Cooper did not hold back when asking Jillian Harris about juggling so many men on the show.

Filling in on Good Morning America, AC sat down with Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski to discuss the just-completed fifth season of the ABC reality series.

His first question: "How many men did you have sex with?"

Clearly uncomfortable with the line of questioning, Ed Swiderski tried to defer to his fiancee, and said that like everything else in life, "you get used to it."

Jill didn't bite on some of the more risque questions, but did give us a little insight into all the kissing that went on over the course of three months.

Jillian Harris: "I kissed, um, 10 guys, but only four of them with tongue."
Anderson Cooper: "You know what, I just threw up in my mouth."

Check out a portion of the funny, awkward interview below ...

Mel Gibson going off on a random dude (one is accusing him of this) would not surprise us in the least. Not after the incident with sugar t!ts way back.

But police think the guy is full of it this time.

The actor's "victim" claims he ripped apart his t-shirt for trying to snap a picture of Mel and girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva while they were at a club.

The guy went to LAPD Hollywood Division and filed a report against Gibson. Law enforcement says the "victim" suffered no injuries and may be lying.

After interviewing the man, cops believe it was impossible for Mel Gibson to have even made contact with him, as the star was wedged in a booth with his pregnant girlfriend and couldn't have realistically grabbed the dude's shirt.

  • Gibson attacker
  • Mel Picture

This tool appears to have ripped his own shirt and blamed Mel.

The man was asked to walk three times before the alleged incident took place. Security told him no photography was allowed in the club, but he persisted.

Cops say witnesses say the same thing - the guy made up the allegations of battery. No one saw his shirt ripped when he was leaving the venue.

Gibson will probably not even be interviewed. Case closed.

Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, will get custody of his three children under terms of a deal that's just been reached, according to reports.

According to reports, Debbie Rowe, the mother of the Michael's eldest two children, Prince Michael I and Paris Jackson, will get visitation, but no cash.

Though he did not go into specifics, Katherine's attorney Londell McMillan said on CBS' The Early Show Thursday: "It's an agreement, an agreement for the best interests of the children. This is not a money deal. This is not about money."

Since the singer's June 25 death, Katherine Jackson, 79, was named the legal guardian and has been in control of Prince, Paris and Michael's third child, Blanket.

Blanket (a.k.a. Prince Michael Jackson II) was born to an unnamed surrogate, though recent tabloid reports have suggested that his biological mother is Pia Bhatti.

That would be the mother of Omer Bhatti, MJ's supposed "secret son."

But back to Debbie Rowe. The singer's ex-wife has sent mixed signals on the subject of whether she wants to be the children's guardian since he passed away.

NBC's Today show reports that under the new deal, Debbie Rowe, who will not receive money, will retain her parental rights but has agreed not to claim custody.

Mother of Prince Michael

Katherine Jackson will raise Michael Jackson's kids, as he requested. Debbie Rowe will be allowed visitation with Prince Michael and Paris Jackson, her biological children.

NBC also reports that Prince and Paris know Debbie Rowe is their mother, and as a central part of the agreement, they will begin to have a relationship with her. A child psychologist will supervise the process, according to reports.

McMillan said , "We will be making an announcement shortly on that issue, and all the parties are resolved. There is no situation better for these children than for them to be raised and reared in the loving care of Mrs. Katherine Jackson."

He dismissed reports that crazy Joe Jackson shouldn't be involved in raising the star's children. Said McMillan, "I don't think it's valid at all. I think that Joe Jackson is the husband of Mrs. Jackson, but he is not living in Los Angeles."

Katherine Jackson was also left 40 percent of Michael Jackson's estate, whereas Joe and Debbie Rowe were omitted from the will altogether.

Michael appointed his two longtime business partners, John Branca and John McClain, as co-executors. Katherine wants to be included on all future dealings regarding the estate, but denies she is challenging the executors or will.

Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl recently lamented the 17-hour day she spent on the set of her hit show on the first day back from its summer hiatus.

In fact, the Emmy winner kept bringing this up, only half-jokingly, during her press tour to promote her new movie, The Ugly Truth. It was a little weird.

Heigl on Today

Well, what if the 17-hour day in question was Katherine's own fault? Oh yes, really. It turns out the "cruel" shooting schedule was only to accommodate her.

The producers of Grey's Anatomy actually graciously shuffled things so she could go off and promote The Ugly Truth, paying a ton of overtime in the process.

Katherine Heigl is known for her acting talent. And loud mouth.

Then again, Heigl was "totally kidding" when she told journalists, talk show hosts and everyone who would listen that she wanted to "embarrass" the show.

Much like it was probably all a joke when she didn't submit her name for Emmy Award consideration the year after winning for "lack of sufficient material."

Hilarious, indeed. Yes, Katherine Heigl pictures are hot. But she needs to shut her yap once in awhile and stop bashing the show that made her famous.
