Meghan McCain, the daughter of U.S. Senator and failed 2008 presidential candidate John McCain, caused quite a (sexy!) stir on Twitter Wednesday evening.

The 24-year-old, currently a blogger and columnist for the Daily Beast living in New York City, posted a rather, um, voluptuous picture of herself online.

You can see it drew more interest than most Meghan McCain pictures ...

Meghan McCain Twitter Pic

Meghan McCain at her bachelorette pad on a typical night. Wowzers.

She has since apologized for posting the photo, although it's still up for the world to see. Needless to say, she received plenty of feedback, good and bad.

"You should put a pink bow over this photo and call it a tribute to breast cancer awareness month," said one Twitter fan, humorously and inappropriately.

But not everyone reacted so kindly. After more than a few cries of SLUT!!!!, Megs threatened to pull a Miley Cyrus and straight up quit Twitter forever. 

She wrote: "ok I am getting the f**k off twitter, promise not to delete my account until I sleep on it, thank you for the nice words supporters."

"When I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a 'slut', I can't even tell you how hurt I am ... seriously I was just trying to be funny with the book and that I'm a dork staying in."

This morning she was back to plugging her column on her page, however.

What do you think of the Meghan McCain Twitter pic controversy?

Last Sunday's Fox NFL pregame show featured a cartoon that mocked the Dallas Cowboys players and organization, along with Jessica Simpson's weight.

A cartoon version of Marion Barber wondered how Tony Romo dated Jessica "after she blew up like (350-pound lineman) Flozell Adams." Later, cartoon coach Wade Phillips asked: "Say Tony, is Jessica around? We could use a defensive tackle!"

The alleged singer and actress was not amused.

While she didn't address the Fox spoof by name, the embattled reality star recently Twittered the following: "I will never understand why people attack for a laugh."

"Own your beauty and don't listen to the judgement [sic]."

Both Fox and Burger King have apologized, saying "Our attempt at humor was insensitive and we apologize to anyone who might have been offended by it."

Fortunately, Simpson doesn't seem to be letting the incident get her down. She's focusing on traveling the world for her new show, The Price of Beauty.

"Having a great sushi filled dinner with friends and fall out of the chair laughter," she Twittered while taking a break from filming with pals in New York City.

We're glad she's staying strong. Jessica Simpson may be an annoying, no-talent hack, but she's one with natural, bootylicious curves! Flaunt it, girl!

Jessica Simpson looks ...

Yeah. Do a little quick math and it's clear there are a great many baby mamas involved in the growing family of Lil Wayne. So much for not ramming them hos!

Looking to set a new benchmark for most children he can father in a single calendar year, the rapper confirmed to the BBC that he's expecting another shortly.

This Lil Lil Wayne's mama is R&B singer Nivea Hamilton (who, on a side note, is also the ex-wife of The-Dream, who recently got married to Christina Milian).

Weezy's kid with Nivea Hamilton will be his third this year, and his fourth total, all carried by different women. No word on how many more he's working on.

Four By Four

THUMBS UP: Let's hear it for loose morals and no condoms!

Last winter, Dwayne Carter Jr.'s first son was born. Mother unknown. Last month, actress Lauren London welcomed his second bundle of child support.

Nivea's baby boy will make three. And we cannot forget his daughter, Reginae, with Antonia "Toya" Carter, who he was actually married to at the time.

Congratulations to the expecting dad ... we think.

We love random celebrity sightings at THG. This definitely does not qualify from the "celebrity" standpoint, but it is about as random a crew as you'll see:

  • Nicholas Prugo, the loser arrested for breaking into Lindsay Lohan's home in August (and suspected of doing the same thing to Audrina Patridge).
  • Drake Bell, of Drake & Josh, and the intended recipient of those now-infamous Vanessa Hudgens nude pictures (nice work hitting that, Drake).
  • Playboy Cyber Girl Tess Taylor.

That's it. Here they are at the Roosevelt Hotel:

After a judge ordered Jon Gosselin to return $180,000 to the account he shares with nagging, estranged wife Kate, he now admits he improperly withdrew the funds.

He's still feigning confusion and calling it a misunderstanding, though.

"It was just after arbitration, we weren't supposed to take money out of the account and we both did," Jon told Entertainment Tonight. "I was found in contempt for doing so. I didn't realize, I was just like taking my paycheck out."

Ahh, you mean THAT $180,000 ...

Come on, Jon. At least come up with a plausible story, or come clean. We all know you don't make THAT much. Nor could you be so consumed with amorous thoughts about Hailey Glassman that you put a decimal point in the wrong place.

Big Pimpin' J

Jon Gosselin is even worse at lying than at fatherhood.

The King of Pimps added that Kate, who accused him removing $200,000, then upped it to $230,000, then finally $235,000 from their account and leaving her unable to pay bills or feed their kids, has to return whatever she withdrew.

"I'm gonna be truthful and abide by the court and I'll put it back," Jon said, displaying such admirable honesty and trust. "And she has to do the same."

All the money is supposed to be put back by October 26.

As for Kate's funds, "it's unaccounted for," he said. "By Friday, we'll know her complete accounting, which might reduce mine. So I don't know what's going on."

So true in so many ways.

Something he does know - to his chagrin - is that his show will end its run as we know it in November, after which it becomes single-mom-touting Kate Plus 8.

Scoffing at TLC and their newly-renamed show, Jon also stated that he will be "continuing on television" and is "not worried about future employment."

Thanks to Jon, neither is the THG staff. What recession??!!

Not all celebrity look-alikes are created equal.

Admittedly, this installment is fueled largely by similar hairstyles among the two stars - but sometimes, as we saw with this Rihanna lookalike, that's all you need.

A John Mayer Picture

THG reader jogirl20099 sent in this photo comparison of John Mayer and Penn Badgley. Okay, it's a younger John Mayer and a much younger Penn Badgley.

Still, it's good enough for our purposes (contact us to submit your own)!

What do you think, readers? Does the douchebag singer look like the Gossip Girl actor before he cut his hair and began dating Blake Lively? Vote below!

Do you see a John Mayer-Penn Badgley resemblance?

Melissa Rycroft is a pro at staying strong in the face of adversity.

On the most recent season of The Bachelor, she received the final rose from Jason Mesnick, only to be dumped on national TV in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney.

She went on to appear on Dancing with the Stars, where she battled through a hairline fracture in her ribs to make the final three and dance on the season finale.

Here's hoping she can bounce back similarly from swine flu.

“Poor Melissa is really, really sick,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online. “She was due to do a photo shoot today but had to cancel at the last minute."

At least Melissa Rycroft has Tye Strickland to care for her. Unless he's holed up in the guest room with surgical mask on to prevent getting the dreaded H1N1 himself.

“It’s so unlike Melissa, as she’s usually such a pro, so you know she has to be on death’s door, figuratively speaking.” Good to know she's not there literally. Phew.

Melissa Rycroft has been sick for several days now, Twittering Monday: “Why did I wake up feeling like I got hit by a Mack truck last night?? Ughh... stupid flu...”

Hopefully, her insurance agent fiance, Tye Strickland, who she got engaged to a few months ago and plans to marry December 12, can nurse her back to health!

Get well soon, Melissa!

It's a style showdown featuring a gorgeous young actress and one of those krazy Kardashians who appears on the cover of every magazine for whatever reason.

Who's your money on?

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively got into character as Serena van der Woodsen in her Alexander Wang dress recently. As always, she makes it work. Salivatingly.

Meanwhile, newlywed Khloe Kardashian hit a party in L.A. in the very same draped purple mini. Who wore it better? Vote in the survey below and tell us ...

Blake Khloe

Who wore this dress better?

Bad business decisions are made all the time, but honestly, signing up Lindsay Lohan as a fashion consultant might go down as one of the all-time worst.

What did they think you were getting? If a company needed an experienced douchebag consultant, Jon Gosselin is available. That would make sense.

Lindsay and fashion, though? Where's the connection there?

The Paris fashion world never expected to see nipple slips pasties on the runway. Nor did Lindsay Lohan, the creative consultant behind the disaster.

Yeah, right.

WTF

WTF! Her expression kind of says it all. [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

The alleged actress was skewered by the fashion press for the first Ungaro collection she served as artistic advisor on. She blamed the fiasco on “coming in so late and having not that much time to do a whole collection.”

As for the much-maligned sequined pasties flashed by the models when they opened up their jackets and blouses, Lindsay Lohan told People at a Victoria’s Secret Velvet launch party in New York that she was as shocked as the audience.

“I wasn’t aware of the nipple tassels on the girls until they were walking out,” she says “I am going back to Paris for the next collection. I am learning.”

So, she was unaware, even though her job is to be a fashion consultant and the models were wearing the line's fashion. Congrats on a job well done!

Filippa Hamilton is hot.

She is also 5-foot-10 and a relatively healthy 120-pounds.

But the French model was recently altered dramatically for a Japanese print ad, and claims she was fired by Ralph Lauren because they thought she was too fat.

"They fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore," Filippa Hamilton said in an interview with the New York Daily News.

Hamilton said of the Ralph Lauren Blue Label ad, which features a funhouse mirror-like slimming of her hips: "I was shocked to see that super skinny girl with my face; it's very sad, I think, that Ralph Lauren could do something like that."

She's got a point. Check out the hilarious comparison:

  • Filippa Hamilton Picture
  • Photoshopped Filippa Hamilton

Filippa Hamilton looks great on the left. The right? Well ...

The company, in response, said the controversially altered picture "was mistakenly released and used in a department store in Japan and was not the approved image which ran in the U.S. We take full responsibility."

"This error has absolutely no connection to our relationship with Filippa Hamilton."

They confirmed Hamilton was released "as a result of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract with us." Ah, the ol' catch-all breach of contract.

Hamilton, who had modeled for the designer since 2002, was unmoved and left little room for interpretation when she said in reply: "[Ralph Lauren] fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore."

"I think they owe American women an apology, a big apology; I'm very proud of what I look like, and I think a role model should look healthy."

What do you think? Is Filippa too fat?
