Continuing their Canadian tour, Prince William and Kate Middleton squared off in a friendly dragon boat race Monday on Prince Edward Island.

Despite a torrential downpour of soaking rain at Dalvay-by-the-Sea, the royal couple was able to fit in the afternoon race across Dalvay Lake.

William won, but his wife was the true prize.

As couple suited up in life jackets and boating attire, the two crews were fighting over which group would get to boat with Kate Middleton!

"Both he and Kate are very competitive, so I think [the race] was good," Olympic bobsled athlete Heather Moyse, who presented William with his prize of a bottle of champagne, says of the newly-married pair.

"As a female athlete, I would be really annoyed if someone let me win."

Despite her loss, Middleton remained in high spirits, telling attendee Hillary Thompson that "maybe next time" she'll get the best of William.

After the race, the 29-year-old Duke and Duchess walked along the waterfront to regain their energy by sampling local culinary delicacies.

Jon Huertas has an expansive, eclectic resume: actor (he stars as Detective Esposito on Castle), former member of the U.S. Air Force Special Ops, singer... sex tape star?

Not really.

In preparation for his upcoming album, Huertas pretended that he went all Kim Kardashian over Twitter this weekend, teasing a hot feature between himself and a female. Turns out, it's just the video for the single "Sex is the Word." Check it out here:

Why promote the video in such a manner? Explained Huertas to Pop Eater:

"Because my album is called 'Sex Tape,' and every one of my songs has its roots in sex in some way, I decided that it would be smarter to have the video be a little bit more about sex."

And it surely is. Try not to drool all over your keyboards when watching it, ladies.

It's a five-peat for Joey Chesnut.

The competitive eater gobbled away the competition yesterday at Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island yesterday. The San Jose, California native fell six short of the record 68 he swallowed in 2009, but was still proud of his overall effort.

"I came out here to win and did what I had to do," Chestnut told ESPN.

On the female side, Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas ate 40 hot dogs to conquer all.

Watch highlights of these voracious victors above.

Her personal struggles have been well-documented, but Demi Lovato returned to the studio last month and will soon give us a taste of what she's been working on.

Asked what fans can expect from her first song in months, Lovato recently said:

"To me it symbolizes my journey from the person I was to the happy healthy person I am today, and the fact that people are able to rise above anything, despite the odds.”

It's an important message and we look forward to hearing more from Demi. THG will post the first listen to "Skyscraper" as soon as it's available.

Yes, Anna Sophia Berglund is Hugh Hefner's "best girl." That's what the Playboy owner labeled Miss January 2011 as late last month.

But, no, that doesn't mean Berglund is actually getting it on with someone old enough to be her grandfather, at least not according to a woman who really doesn't want that rumor to be true: Anna's mother.

Hef and Anna Sophia Berglund

"They met at a party a few years back, but they are JUST FRIENDS," Lena Griffin said to TMZ. "It makes me feel so much better to know there is not any hanky-panky going on."

It would make Shera Bechard feel better, too. That blonde has also been linked sexually to Hefner and she'd be aghast if he were actually doing two women simultaneously. It would be so unlike the guy.

Emily Maynard will open up to Chris Harrison about her breakup with Brad Womack in a special segment next week on The Bachelorette.

Brad will not be joining her.

Harrison said that Womack was not ready to discuss the split with Emily, to whom he proposed on The Bachelor finale earlier this year.

Maynard confirmed the breakup, which had been something of an open secret for some time, in an interview last week with People.

Harrison said he reached out to Brad to ask if he would participate in the interview, but the Texas bar owner was not willing to do so on television.

"While he gave his blessing for Emily to speak on their behalf, his emotions are still too raw and he wasn't ready to speak about it," Chris said. "I respect that and told him I was sorry we had to do this interview at all."

Yes. So sorry they had to rehash this publicly for ratings.

Harrison also said that Emily Maynard was "reluctant" to discuss the split, but wanted to set the record straight following so much media interest.

Three stars have been fired by producers of the semi-autobiographical NBC sitcom based on Chelsea Handler's book Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.

White Collar alum Natalie Morales, former ER star Angel Laketa Moore, and Chelsea Lately staple Jo Koy were cut by Vodka "for creative reasons."

That 70's Show's Laura Prepon is staying put as the star, playing a young Chelsea Handler in the sitcom, which is slated to premiere mid-season.

  • Comedic Handler

NBC already released a trailer with the now-cut cast-members in it. That's awkward, but these things do happen somewhat frequently before shows air.

Handler has yet to make any obnoxious, irreverent comments about the casting moves, or how she really likes to drink, but just give it a few hours.

Beyonce didn't merely perform a couple tracks at last night's Macy's Fourth of July Spectacular.

Check out Josh Groban leading the patriotic charge during A Capitol Fourth in D.C. and then watch Beyonce break out her big voice in New York City here:

Mike Sorrentino, a.k.a. the only guy who has a nickname (Sitch) for his own nickname (The Situation) celebrated his birthday yesterday on July 4.

It's an appropriate birthday for Mike, since only in America can a fella who contracts STDs, takes steroids, talks with a fake ghetto accent, instigates fights among friends and wears shirts four sizes too small become a household name.

We kid. Well, sort of. All of the above is true.

Da Situation

There's a genuineness about Sitch that makes the Jersey Shore star lovable in spite of his douche-like qualities. He also comes up with acronyms and catchphrase for everything and makes us laugh more than we like to admit.

He's taken a literal beating (from Ronnie) and a pounding in the press (from his dad) in recent months, but both feuds have reportedly been put to rest. So here's wishing The Situation a happy 30th birthday a few hours late.

We know, 30? Pretty soon he'll be "that guy" at the club.
