As the recently-chosen director of Breaking Dawn, Bill Condon has a message for fans: The movie is in good hands!

Seriously, the Oscar winner behind Dreamgirls really does have this message. He posted it on Facebook over the weekend:

Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob and Team Switzerland,

I just want to say hello to all of you and let you know that I’m stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making BREAKING DAWN. As you’ve probably heard, I’ve been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit – who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right.

I’ve read BREAKING DAWN twice, rewatched Catherine’s and Chris’s movies 2-3 times each, have all four CDs playing in my car, and have Catherine’s notebook, Mark Cotta Vaz’s companion books, and even Volume 1 of the graphic novel here on my desk – a corner of my office is starting to look like Hot Topic. I realize that this barely qualifies me for ‘newborn’ status in the universe you’ve been living inside for a few years now, but a guy’s gotta start somewhere.

I’m a huge admirer of the already-iconic Kristen, Robert, and Taylor, and wanted to be the one to work with them as they face the challenges of bringing your beloved characters to the end of their journeys. Really, what could be more fun than that?

Sounds like Condon understands the challenges ahaead of him and recognizes the popularity of the world he has just agreed to take on. Let's welcome him to the franchise, shall we?

She may not be out of the Woods ... but she's leaving him in the dust.

While Tiger was missing the cut at the Quail Hollow Championship, his wife, Elin Nordegren, went for a jog over the weekend in her native Sweden.

Elin and Charlie Woods

Her wedding ring? Nowhere in sight. Her form-fitting track suit? Holla!

Since Tiger's affair with Rachel Uchitel and double life was exposed in November, Elin's ring finger has been photographed only a handful of times.

It came off, then was back on, now is off again. Hmm ...

WOMAN ON THE RUN: Far, far away from Tiger!

Elin Woods, who is said to be starting over in Sweden minus her estranged husband, is known for keeping a low profile and has not filed for divorce.

However, you have to wonder how long it will be before that formally happens - at this point, it's looking more like a question of who will file first.

Reports say Nordegren is moving ahead with plans to divorce the wealthy Woods, even though a source told the magazine that she "still loves him."

"She knew she'd set a bad example for the kids if she stayed," a source said.

Pretty much.

Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz are working things out.

"Tito and I love each other and I want him back in my life," she said. "He's a fantastic father and I’m confident we can work through this challenge."

Just JJ

A couple since fall 2006, Jameson and Ortiz welcomed twin sons Jesse and Journey on March 15. But things got ugly early last week at their house.

That's when Ortiz was arrested at their Huntington Beach, Calif., home on suspicion of assaulting Jameson. Domestic abuse charges were filed.

The next day, the fighting champion claimed the adult film star suffered from an Oxycontin addiction; subsequent tests proved Jenna is drug free.

Jenna and Tito are going to make this work.

Both later recanted those respective claims, though, and Jameson went on to say the incident was "dramatically distorted and misinterpreted."

"The events of Monday show how things can get tragically out of hand when people say things in the heat of the moment ... my father (the one who called 911) was trying to diffuse a private issue between two people," she said.

The plan is for Tito to move back in mid-week.

It may have even happened sooner, but the automatic restraining order that prohibits Tito from contacting Jenna does not expire until today.

Will Jenna change her mind about letting Tito back in? She changed her account of what happened during the alleged incident, so who knows.

The actor also producers hilarious Family Guy quotes each week.

Grant, who attended the University of Memphis, appeared with Christina Ricci in Black Snake Moan and stars in the MTV series $5 Cover.

Congratulations to Seth Green and Clare Grant!

Taylor Swift is awesome - and THG isn't the only company that thinks so.

The singer has been named the new spokesperson for CoverGirl. She joins the ranks of other stars that have represented the brand, such as Drew Barrymore, Rihanna, Queen Latifah and Ellen DeGeneres.

While Swift's ads for a line of luxury cosmetics won’t debut until January 2011, here's a sneak peek at her in the new role:

Says CoverGirl General Manager Vince Hudson:

"Taylor is beautiful, inspiration with an effortless-chic style, making her the perfect person to represent a new, luxurious collection of products debuting on Cover Girl next year."

We can't argue with any of that. Take a look at the singer on tour below:

When Ricky Martin and Adam Lambert came out of the closet, the entertainment world was proud, but not exactly shocked.

According to TMZ, though, Chely Wright is ready to make a surprising announcement: she's gay.

People magazine first floated the rumor that a significant star would reveal her homosexuality in the near future, and TMZ has confirmed it's Wright. The country singer, whose "Single White Female" hit number-one in 1999, has an autobiography and a new CD coming out this week.

We're always happy when a celebrity (or a human being in general) is confident and secure enough to make such an admission publicly - but it would help her cause if she weren't promoting an album at the same time.

If this report is accurate, Wright will be the first major country singer to go public with her sexual orientation. It's a big risk, considering the conservative demographic of country music fans.

We wish her the best of luck.

Because we know you were sitting around wondering: Michelle McGee's take on Sandra Bullock's adoption of a new baby boy from New Orleans?

"I was really shocked," she said Friday.

On the nationally syndicated Johnjay and Rich radio show, Friday, she said she had "no idea" Jesse and Sandra had begun the adoption process.

Right, because that's totally the exact sort of subject you would expect the married guy who's nailing you to bring up casually during pillow talk.

Bombshell also says she never paid attention to celebrity gossip until her affair with James - and was stunned (!) by what she saw at the Oscars.

Sandra Pic

YOU NEVER TELL ME ANYTHING: "Bombshell" was shocked by Sandra's adoption. Similar to our reaction to the fact that people in the 21st century still heart Nazis.

"I was like, 'Whoa, what the heck?!'" said the stripper, who has said that James told her numerous times that his marriage to Bullock was "a sham."

What a disgrace.

In addition to being bummed about being left out of the pair's adoption plans, Michelle "Bombshell" McGee is bitter at the biker for other reasons.

She calls him just an "OK" lover.

"I think so, yeah. I think Jesse is used to getting stuff that he wants and he's gonna get what he wants," she adds, noting that James is a big liar.

He clearly has a lot of work to do if he wants to turn his life around after this ... Look at the woman on the left, then the one on the right. Period.

Following reports from multiple media outlets on Friday, Gabriel Aubry has confirmed the news: he and Halle Berry are no longer together.

"I am sad to say that Halle and I have decided together to separate at this time," Aubry said in a statement. "She is, and will forever be one of the most special and beautiful people that I have ever known, and I am certain that we will continue to have only love and respect for one another."

That's a fair, mature thing to say. We just have one question in response: What the heck is wrong with you, Gabriel Aubry?!?

Berry and Aubry  first met at a 2006 Versace photo shoot. They are the parents of two-year old daughter Nahla and are working on a custody arrangement for her.

"We have been blessed with the most amazing daughter in the world," Aubry added. "Her happiness and well-being are the most important thing for both of us. Please respect our privacy during this very difficult time."

On Friday, meanwhile, Berry saw a performance of the Broadway play Fences, starring Denzel Washington. A friend describes the actress as being in "good spirits."

While President Barack Obama deals with rumors of an affair with Vera Baker, he got to take the night off from scandals, debates and politics in general at yesterday' White House Correspondents' Dinner.

The annual event brings celebrities together with politicians, as a comedian is chosen to host the evening and the President always takes the stage to poke fun at himself and his opponents.

President George W. Bush caused controversy in the past by actually making fun of the fact that he and his administration never found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We went to war for misguided, false reasons! Hilarious!

Last night, though, Obama kept his routine mostly safe, but altogether hilarious. First, he yanked MC Jay Leno's chain: "I'm glad that I'm speaking first because we've all seen what happens when somebody takes the timeslot after Leno's."

He then moved on to John McCain," who “recently claimed he had never identified himself as a maverick," said the President. "And we all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have ID.”

Leno, of course, was his typical lame, unfunny self. He delivered such gems as referring to Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign as "Leave no child with a bigger behind."

Spotted on the red carpet were such stars as Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber (who posed together! yikes!), Jessica Simpson (who said she really admires Michelle Obama as "a powerful woman), Jessica Alba, the Jonas Brothers and more.

Quipped Bill Maher: "It's great to mingle with America's real intellectual heavyweights. I saw the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Jessica Simpson, Ryan Seacrest – I can't wait to talk politics."

Based on Rock of Love, we already knew that Bret Michaels possessed a sheer will to get with groupies on his tour bus.

But now we know there's one thing this rock star cares about even more: living.

As his condition continues to improve, Michaels' neurosurgeon at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix is marveling at Bret's recovery and attitude.

"There is no doubt that Mr. Michaels' condition is serious," Dr. Zabramski said this week, following the singer's subarachnoid hemorrhage on April 22. "Bret's sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable. He has an unbelievable fight in him and told me what kept him alive at the moment of the hemorrhage was that he did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor."

Michaels has two daughters, Raine and Jorja, ages nine and four.

He's also a diabetic who has suffered through numerous "roadblocks," Zabramski said, including "hyponatremia, severe cranial and back pain suffered from blood drainage." His patient in stable condition, the doctor added:

"It was a combination of Bret's fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage and get to the emergency room, and the immediate medical attention provided by our staff at Barrow that enabled us to stabilize his condition.”

The team at Barrow will hold press conference on Tuesday, in which surgeons will update Michaels' progress even more.
