America's Got Talent winner Michael Grimm is more than just a reality show champion and recent fiance.

He's also now an official professional singer, having signed a deal with Epic Records this week.

Currently rehearsing for America’s Got Talent Live, a tour which begins on Friday and include fellow finalists Prince Poppycock and Jackie Evancho, Grimm will aim to release a solo album in March 2011.

Soon after conquering the aforementioned competition, Grimm said of his eventual CD: “I know the genre, I know the route I want to go on this album, what it looks like, and smells like, and sounds like."

Sounds like a confidence crooner. We'll be curious to hear the final product.

Oksana Grigorieva wasn't kidding about a PR offensive.

Oprah Winfrey has landed a coveted TV interview with Mel Gibson's estranged source of baby mama drama and domestic abuse allegations, edging out 60 Minutes.

Winfrey's production company, Harpo, apparently struck a deal with Team Oksana on Tuesday. There's no telling what the nut job will say on the popular program.

"Oksana has a very powerful story to share, from emigrating to the United States from Russia, her marriage with Timothy Dalton, her music career and a volatile relationship with Mel Gibson," an insider says, regarding the upcoming Oprah interview.

Let's be honest with ourselves here. Yes, Mel Gibson is a jackass and bona fide lunatic who should be locked up if he really did any of the things Oksana alleges.

But this woman is no saint herself. Quite the contrary, in fact.

In addition to the domestic violence investigation of Gibson, police are also probing Oksana to determine if she's guilty of extortion. Criminal or not, she is shady.

Lindsay Lohan is in rehab as of earlier this week. This is believed to be at least her fifth attempt to get clean, which makes us wonder why she even bothers.

The star checked herself into rehab to seek treatment until a October 22 probation violation hearing, at which point she may be sentenced to jail once more.

Lohan's Orange County home until that date, the address of which is not being disclosed, marks a new bid to get sober. But is she even taking this seriously?

“She is with us for the time being," says a source at the facility.

"We expect her to stay for the full 90 days, however she could bounce because there is no court order ensuring that she has to stay.” Yes, they used the term bounce.

After serving 14 days in July at Lynwood Correctional Facility for violating probation terms stemming from a 2007 DUI charge, Lohan was ordered to 90 days of rehab.

But, because she can afford really good lawyers, she ended up staying for less than a third of that, only to fail two drug tests shortly thereafter. Yay, legal system!

Can she stay clean this time, or will history repeat itself?

Farrah Abraham was 16 and Pregnant. Now, is she about to be a Teen Mom ... again!?

That's the rumor going around after she was seen at a modeling gig the weekend of September 18 in Council Bluffs, Iowa, sporting what some in the audience called a burgeoning belly - a clearly-defined baby bump beneath a slinky-blue dress.

Farrah Abraham Pregnant?

If she were pregnant, who's the father? Derek Underwood, her daughter's dad, was tragically killed in a car accident, leaving Farrah broke for a significant time.

Insiders say there has recently been talk around her hometown that the youngster's wardrobe choices suggest that she's expecting again. Says one observer:

“She looks much rounder in the belly and has been staying in more. When she does leave the house, she’s in baggy clothing, like she’s trying not to show her stomach. That’s not like her at all - she’s normally so proud of her figure.”

Of course, it could just be the cooler, early fall climate. Just saying.

American Idol auditions kicked off in New Jersey last night, with the new judging panel was in place to grade season 10 hopefuls.

It looks like Randy Jackson has been promoted, as he's seated in Simon Cowell's seat in the photo below. Alongside him, of course, are new panelists Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. The group is being directed by producer Nigel Lythgoe.

Sorry, Casey

"We're sure going to send some people home with broken hearts," said Tyler. "But with all that we've been through in our careers, living vicariously through the young talent out there, it's going to be hard. But it's also going to be fun, because they're stepping up to the plate, and so are we."

Are you excited for the new season to kick off in January?

The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder recently spoke to TV Fanatic about the ongoing recovery efforts in his native Louisiana and, of course, his hit CW series.

On where things stand in the Gulf: "It’s coming along. Everyone’s been so helpful. I think BP’s going to make it right. I know that the nurseries that we thought had been destroyed haven’t been destroyed, the marshes weren’t destroyed, which is great."

Sexiest Beast

"With a lot of help from man, I think Mother Nature [will] bounce back. There’s going to be a lot of side effects. It’s too early to know. What we’re seeing right now, we have no idea what’s lurking under the surface or what’s going to happen next year."

On how people can get involved: "I am putting together a foundation that’s going to work in conjunction with a bunch of other foundations that will be very, very focused on going into that region, and helping. A great deal."

"The National Wildlife Federation, the RDC, are involved in what’s going on. Right now, there needs to be a solid go-to place in order to help, and that’s what I’m literally working on as we speak. I’m not even kidding. Keep up and support these people."

Never far from controversy or the spotlight, Bristol Palin was spotted at an Alaska bar last week while rehearsing and taping a segment for Dancing With the Stars.

The 19-year-old's excuse for being there all comes down to ... nachos.

A segment Bristol taped for DWTS inside Rumrunner's Old Towne Bar and Grill Thursday sparked a state investigation (seriously). But Bristol should be fine.

"The place is also a restaurant ... so under 21 is allowed under Alaska law if she is accompanied by a person over 21, which she was," says a Palin source.

Bristol was with partner Mark Ballas, 24, during the segment, and moreover, the source is adamant that "Bristol had nachos only," which TMZ's pics support.

So far, the Alaska Department of Public Safety has no comment on the matter, but if it's a bona fide restaurant, and she was there to eat, what's the big deal?

We can't believe we're saying this, but ... leave Bristol alone!!!!!! You can boo Sarah Palin all you like, but let the girl enjoy some nachos in peace ... right?

Skinny celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and Brad Goreski, her bow-tie clad assistant and possible bed buddy, have sadly decided to part ways, effective October 1.

“I love Rachel, she’s taught me everything I know,” Goreski said. “But there’s a point where either I do it now or never know what it’s like to spread my wings.”

Breaking the news to Zoe about a month ago was nothing short of “major.”

“We couldn’t stop hugging and we couldn’t stop crying,” she says. “He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, ‘I’m here for you always.’”

Goreski is counting on it. “I hope she’ll continue to teach me more and more,” he says. Replacing him on The Rachel Zoe Project will be no easy feat, to be sure.

“Our relationship is not normal. I jump into bed with him and wake him up and have these pow wows and he’s like, ‘Wow, I haven’t brushed my teeth,’” Zoe says.

“I don’t want to hire somebody for the purpose of the show, we just got lucky. No one’s ever going to be Brad to me.” Hopefully, no one will ever have to be.

Jennifer Aniston just wants a man to take it to the next level with.

She thought Josh Hopkins was it, a source says ... but he did not!

According to Us Weekly, Jen and the Cougar Town star began casually dating in May after meeting through Courteney Cox, her BFF and his co-star on the ABC comedy.

Before long, Aniston "wanted a relationship. And he was like, 'No, thank you,'" the source says, labeling Hopkins "a player who is into younger girls." Rough!

The actor (who romances Cox on the show) even has a raunchy nickname for her: "Josh calls Jen a 'sport f--k,'" a Hopkins pal says of the "friends with benefits."

Hopkins has denied any romance. Whatever happened, she's over it, too. She "likes her life the way it is," a source says. Her type? "Really good-looking a$$holes."

Basically, this douchebag.

According to this week's issue of Life & Style, there's breaking Kardashian baby news. But you don't need to shell out a dime to learn any of it. THG is about to deliver the story for free:

NO ONE IS PREGNANT!

Truly worthy of a cover story, we know.

Why is Demi Moore okay with the Ashton Kutcher cheating scandal, as this cover claims? Probably because it isn't true.

Khloe Kardashian does say that she and Lamar Odom are having a lot of sex, though, in case you were curious.

"We've been working at it all year," Khloe tells the magazine. "Getting pregnant is much harder than we thought - but practicing making babies is amazing!"
