Jake Pavelka is the "most serious" star The Bachelor has ever had in its 14 seasons, according to the show's venerable host-pimp, Chris Harrison.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chris talked about the new season kicking off Monday. He said that Jake was totally blown away the first night.

"[Jake] looked at me the first night and said 'my wife is in this room," Chris recalled, noting that Jake Pavelka was "determined" to find someone.

As opposed to most people who star on The Bachelor.

Chris says this season, unlike past seasons, will feature craziness on an emotional and psychological level, rather than a "let's get naked" level.

Zzz. Although the contestant who cheats on Jake with a crew member sounds like it could provide some traditional, not-at-all-staged drama.

Chris Harrison Interview

Chris Harrison calls The Bachelor an "amazing study in human behavior."

Of his role as the show's MC, his job is to keep the peace, as well as to say "ladies ... the final rose tonight." But Harrison says it runs deeper than that.

"I think I’m exponentially better qualified than Dr. Phil will ever be. And I’m about half as full of $h!t as he is. I could easily host a relationship show."

We would totally watch, who are we kidding? He's already a confidant for strangers: “Because people see me on this show, they tell me things,” he says.

“I’ll be at a bar, and people just open up to me. I know what people’s husbands like in sex, the size of their ... They just tell me anything and everything."

Will Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman will sit down with their lawyers to work out their issues and avoid both a legal battle and lengthy, public war of words?

That would be uncharacteristically mature and smart.

Nevertheless, that's the rumor going around. Now, after days of mudslinging and trading accusations, the two sides are apparently willing to attempt a truce.

Her attorney Stephanie Ovadia said that "Hailey Glassman, Jon, myself and (Jon’s lawyer Mark Heller) decided to privately sit down and discuss the matter." 

"We are going to discuss a resolution.”

Jon and Hailey in happier times.

Hailey Glassman has accused Jon of pushing her against a wall. Jon accuses her of ransacking his NYC pad. Both claims are being investigated by the NYPD.

Jon has said he returned to his New York apartment after Christmas and found it ransacked, his belongs slashed with a knife and many items just missing.

Hailey’s attorney admitted that Jon’s ex-girlfriend, who shared the apartment with him, took the TV and other items, but said those items belonged to her.

She denies any vandalism took place.

Loudmouth Mark Heller confirmed that Hailey's camp reached out to him about meeting to resolve the matter with Jon and that it would happen soon.

We have a shocking development: PETA has made news for a reason other than taking off the clothes of a D-list celebrity!

Has it saved a number of animals? Of course not. This organization doesn't actually care about that mission.

Instead, it's named new American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres and Project Runway host Tim Gunn as its Woman and Man of the Year, respectively.

"Their message that animals must be treated kindly and respectfully has reached scores of people, and many of them have changed their buying habits, all because Gunn and DeGeneres spoke up for the voiceless," PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement this week.

  • New Idol Judge
  • Tim Gunn

DeGeneres became a vegan in 2008; while Gunn always champions designs that use fake fur, faux reptile prints and other animal-friendly fabrics.

We're just shocked PETA didn't ask either celeb to pose naked. That's the way it typically makes headlines, wasting millions of dollars on Khloe Kardashian nude billboards instead of actually putting that money where the problems lie.

Click on the following photos to check out the random stars that have posed for PETA this year:

Elizabeth Edwards wants cheating husband John to support his love child with Rielle Hunter, and even wants to meet the little girl personally, sources say.

Surprisingly, Elizabeth wants John to fully support the baby and even wants to meet John and Rielle's love child in person, The National Enquirer says.

While she's heartbroken over John Edwards' “second family,” Elizabeth is determined that the former presidential candidate avoid an ugly court battle.

“Elizabeth feels that above all else, John and Rielle need to put their differences aside,” a close source told The Enquirer. "This is very difficult for her."

“As much as she hates that John has a second family, she can't stand the idea of Rielle Hunter going public with all of their dirty laundry in court."

"She instructed John to have his lawyers call Rielle's people and say they're giving her what she wants. She's also going to meet Rielle's little girl.”

Rielle Hunter, Frances Quinn Hunter

THIS IS AWKWARD: If Elizabeth Edwards meets Rielle Hunter and her daughter, that could lead to a lot of tense conversation. And hopefully a reality show on MTV.

Rielle is reportedly seeking $17,000 a month in child support from John, who she has never formally acknowledged is the father of her daughter.

John has admitted sleeping with Rielle but denies he is the father of Frances, who will turn 2 on February 27. But come on, most people think he is.

Elizabeth is apparently one of them.

“Despite her anger at Rielle, who she calls a stalker and a home wrecker, Elizabeth knows Frances didn't bring any of this about,” said a source.

“Elizabeth sometimes breaks down in tears when she talks about Frances. Once she said, ‘She needs a daddy. All children need their father.'”

Even if their father is a guy who knocked up some weird videographer while his wife battled breast cancer and he was running for president?

Maybe single motherhood is best sometimes.

As the world gets ready to turn the page on 2009, one woman is likely hesitant to welcome in a new year: Susan Boyle.

The Scottish singer burst onto the celebrity map like no one in recent memory over the last few months, finishing second on Britain's Got Talent and then incredibly becoming the highest-selling artist of the year.

In a new interview, Boyle takes a look back, as well a look forward. Might the latter include a boyfriend? She seems to hope so...

On the world's fascination with her: A woman who went on Britain’s Got Talent with mad hair, bushy eyebrows and the frock I was wearing had to be noticed. Come on! I know it’s a cliché, but it’s a bit of a Cinderella story.

On her stay in a mental health facility: After the finale, I went there with extreme exhaustion. I’ve never felt so tired, but I look back on it now and it was a necessity. I wanted to get a break, without all the cameras.

On her dreams: I dream about security, about one day finding the right person and continuing to make people happy with my music. My advice to those who dare to dream is don’t give up. If I can do it, anyone else can.

  • Christmas Miracle
  • Snowball Attack!

If Susan Boyle threw one snowball for every album she sold in 2009, she'd likely freeze to death.

Bankruptcy. Heartbreak. Rumors that she is a hermaphrodite. Flowers hurtling through the air and striking her in the head. Nothing can faze Lady Gaga!

During her performance of "Poker Face" in Atlanta, Ga., Tuesday, the singer was hit upside the head with a bouquet of flowers from an overexcited fan.

She barely even reacted. These things happen when you're Lady Gaga.

Check out the amusing video below (the floral assault happens around the one-minute mark) and see the powerhouse performer just shrug it off ...

Since leaving The View in mid-2007, Rosie O'Donnell has remained out of the spotlight.

About a month after the comedian admitted long-time partner Kelli Carpenter moved out of their house two years ago, her rep has confirmed a new woman in Donnell's life: Tracy Kachtick-Anders, a Texas-based artist.

A photo of the couple walking together has been plastered across the Internet over the last 24 hours.

Who is Kachtick-Anders?

She is the founder of Open Arms Campaign, a non-profit organization aimed at recruiting and fostering adoptive families within the LGBT community.

"I have become an activist and work to educate everyone, not only about the plight of foster children, but also the inequality that faces LGBT people in their quest to create families," she has written.

Kachtick-Anders walks the walk, too: she has five adopted children.

O'Donnell, meanwhile, will host A Family Is A Family Is A Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration, a HBO documentary in January that challenges the traditional ideas of family. We doubt Carrie Prejean will turn in for it.

Looks like Chris Robinson will be on diaper duty this New Year's Eve.

The Black Crowes frontman and wife Allison Bridges welcomed a daughter on Saturday, their first child together, a rep for the musician tells People.

"Chris Robinson and his new wife, Allison Bridges, have a healthy and beautiful baby girl," says the star's rep. "Cheyenne Genevieve Robinson, 6 lbs., 3 oz., was born on December 26, 2009 at the Robinsons' home in California."

Robinson, who married Bridges earlier this year, confirmed in September that they were expecting their first child together. It's his second child.

He has a son, 5-year-old Ryder Russell, with ex-wife Kate Hudson.

After a year of touring in support of the Black Crowes's latest album, Before the Frost ... Until the Freeze, Robinson plans to spend some time at home with his wife and daughter before the band starts a new project and tour in 2010.

On the surface, Twilight Saga actress Ashley Greene and Real Housewife of Orange County Gretchen Rossi have little in common.

The former is a young actress on the rise. The latter is a spoiled, talentless reality star. But let's look deeper.

Both stars have posed naked, with Rossi's photo still live on the Internet and quite racy. Greene's lawyers have at least forced websites to remove the nude pictures of his client.

Both also share a taste in fashion, as they were each spotted out recently in a gold Gryphon shift dress. The New Moon beauty covered hers with a trench coat and belt, while Rossi let it all hang out... as we all know she enjoys doing. Compare the looks below:

Ashley Greene or Gretchen Rossi

Who wears this dress better?
