Ali Fedotowsky endeared herself to millions on The Bachelor this winter, partly on her own merits but partly because she stood up to the hated Vienna Girardi.

In any event, the "energetic and charismatic career-oriented" girl from San Francisco "has re-prioritized her life" and will be doling out the roses this time.

On Monday, May 24, Ali Fedotowsky will star on the sixth season of The Bachelorette. Jake Pavelka who? The Bachelor is just a distant, stiff memory by now.

I Made a Mistake!

Ali pretends to "regret" leaving as she asks Jake for a do-over.

All but certain to be named The Bachelorette after her decision to leave the show was orchestrated by producers broke the hearts of many fans, this fan favorite is ready to make the right decision this time around - and put love first!

A native of Williamstown, Mass., she has set her sights on a reliable, funny and humble guy who can challenge her. Even though she's known for her work ethic, she loves to play. She enjoys hiking, wake boarding, soccer, and wine tastings.

Get your resumes ready, guys! Just no lame pilots from Dallas, please.

Was Ali Fedotowsky a good choice for The Bachelorette?

Where does Lauren Conrad turn when she needs a wardrobe update?

To the fashion collection she herself designed for Kohl’s, of course.

“I think if you’re not willing to wear your own clothes, you’re doing something wrong," she says. "This line was meant to be about my style, pieces I want to walk in the store and buy. If you’re not wearing your own line, you’re taking the fun out of it!”

Here's Lauren looking fabulous in one of her pieces ...

So Gorgeous

Known for her flirty frocks and California cool girl style, Lauren tells Glamour her staple piece is the blazer. “We have one in every collection, and we usually tweak it a little bit. In this specific collection, I also really love the biker jacket we did.”

Come spring, the former star of The Hills says she’ll be pairing her sharp toppers with lots of watercolor prints: “I think they’re very romantic and kind of timeless."

"I almost did too much of it with this collection," she says. "When we were shopping for prints with Kohl’s, everything I picked was watercolor and floral."

"They’re very in because of the whole Alice in Wonderland thing.”

However one fashion fad the style author won’t be trying this season is hot pants: “You can’t wear them to the club, because you’re going to look like one of the dancers, but they could look cute on the beach!” says LC.

Charlie Sheen is prepared to plead guilty following his drunken Christmas melee with wife Brooke Mueller. The only thing left is to hammer out the logistics.

The prosecution in the assault case is reportedly not looking for jail time, but wants Sheen to either cop a guilty plea to a felony or stand trial for the attack.

Charlie Sheen and Cloris Leachman

The Two and a Half Men star is more than willing to plead guilty or no contest to a misdemeanor with no jail time, which means this boils down to one issue:

Whether Charlie pleads to a misdemeanor or a felony. Charlie's position is that Aspen, Colo., prosecutors routinely accept misdemeanor pleas in such cases.

Charlie and Brooke have been through a lot lately.

Sheen also wants the case dismissed outright at the end of the probationary period, which is likely to span a year or more. So what's the hangup here?

The Aspen D.A. is reluctant to let Charlie already off too easily.

In 1997, the troubled star pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery in a domestic violence case involving then-girlfriend Brittany Ashland. That's an issue.

The Aspen D.A. feels that given Charlie's history, a felony is appropriate. So his fate in the Brooke Mueller incident may involve more legal wrangling yet.

Stay tuned ...

The Hills just isn't the same without Lauren Conrad. Take away the entertainment of Spencer Pratt and it's pretty much worthless ... which we'd better get used to.

The reality TV villain says he's leaving the show, and we think he's serious, to take his career in a surprising new direction: To protect America from cyber threats.

Seriously. People reported this.

"In the last few months I discovered a new passion and new purpose to my life," Pratt said. "With this in mind, I have decided to take a break from MTV's The Hills."

Now studying software engineering with a focus on encryption at USC, Spencer Pratt says he's off to work for American Defense Enterprises' cyber security division.

His first mission? Making sure all Heidi Montag pictures are secure!

V. I. Pimp

Our first, and hopefully not last line of defense against hackers.

"Upon learning of President Obama's declaration that the 'cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation,' I have decided to refocus my energy and resources to helping America," he says.

"My new mission is this: To do my part in maintaining the technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent emerging technologies from threatening our nation's security as we face this and other unprecedented challenges."

That's ... awesome actually. But this is Spencer Pratt. He can't possibly be serious, right? Is there a reality TV crew on call to film him fighting cyber-terrorists?

"I am saddened to take this break from MTV's The Hills," he admits. "However I feel I would not be honoring my country if I were to continue when I have the ability and opportunity to assist our nation against these prevalent threats."

Pratt's wife, Heidi Montag, remains on The Hills. Spencer has also been relieved of managerial duties for Heidi, who's now using Malibu-based psychic Aiden Chase.

Cyber Threat

These jerks have met their sleazy match.

Jessica Simpson is all self-conscious thanks to that douchebag John Mayer.

After the singer told Playboy that she was "sexual napalm" and that he wanted to "snort her like crack," Jess is concerned about guys checking her out 24/7.

Monday on The View, Simpson said Mayer's revealing Playboy interview was "embarrassing. I'll walk into a restaurant and I feel like men are looking at me."

"I feel like they're undressing me."

Yeah, John Mayer's interview is when that all started. No one goes to a Jessica Simpson concert or watches her movies because of her charisma. Just sayin'.

As she's said before, the star said Mayer's apology "doesn't really matter." Will she ever take him back? "He'll never have this napalm again!" she declared.

Amen, sister.

Simpson also shot down her rumored romance with Billy Corgan. "I can't meet anyone without being married the next week," Simpson said of Corgan, who helped produce theme song for The Price of Beauty, which premieres tonight.

"He is one of my dear friends ... he understands my heart." Deep.

Also a clothing designer, Jess told The View panel about a new product: "I'm actually about to put out a denim line: sexy mom jeans!" Sure to be a hot seller.

Check out a clip of Sexual Napalm on The View below ...

The seven-year marriage of Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes is over.

"Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year," their lawyers said in a statement. "The split is amicable and by mutual agreement."

"Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children."

Winslet and Mendes were married back in 2003. The award-winning director and Titanic star / perennial Oscar nominee have a six-year-old son, Joe, together.

Winslet also has a daughter, Mia, 9, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton. It's always sad to report stories like this, but we wish them both the best.

Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet are throwing in the towel.

Apparently Rielle Hunter has the green light to start blabbing about John Edwards and their torrid love affair, because GQ has a feature on her in its new issue.

A feature showing Edwards' mistress - a woman of "serenity and spunk" - trying hard to look sexy and, fittingly, given what she's known for, wearing no pants.

The John Edwards sex tape participant and mother of the love child he denied was his for two years certainly is captivating, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

Luckily for us, GQ got Rielle Hunter half naked, propped her on a bed full of toys, and told her to recall in detail how it was love at first sight with “Johnny.”

One of her "unfiltered" observations: It's all Elizabeth's fault!

Rielle Hunter in GQ

So many things are wrong with this, where do we even begin?

"I believe what happened in his marriage is, he could not go to his wife and say, 'We have an issue,'" she opines. "Because he would be pummeled. He had a huge fear."

"Most of [John's] mistakes or errors in judgment were because of his fear of the wrath of Elizabeth," the weird videographer adds. "He allowed himself to be pushed into a lot of things that he wouldn’t normally do because of Elizabeth’s story line."

"A lot of it relates to the spin that she wants to put out there. He was emasculated. And you know, the wrath of Elizabeth is a mighty wrath.” Oh, we so know. Totally.

So he knocked up Rielle, had Andrew Young take the fall and may have used campaign funds to cover it up because he was scared of his wife. Makes perfect sense.

She continues: “It’s beyond difficult to allow a man to be a man."

"The biggest mistake that I find is that women attempt to make men women. You know, we want them to be like we are. We want them to get it immediately and do things the way that we want them to do them. And men are men."

  • Rielle Hunter and Daughter
  • Rielle Hunter, No Pants

"I love him for being a man. But oh, my God, yes, it’s been infuriating so many times." So basically, Elizabeth is a banshee, and men will be men, eh, Rielle? Nut job.

Remember Omer Bhatti? Michael Jackson's former protege and alleged secret son, is treating Blanket, the late pop icon's youngest son, as if he were his own.

Bhatti has been living with the Jackson family and telling poor little Blanket, along with his siblings Prince and Paris, that he's their father, according to reports.

Michael Jackson Jr. Birth Certificate

The 25-year-old Norwegian rapper, who is rumored to be Michael’s son, first showed up on the Jackson scene in 1996. There's no doubt he and MJ were close.

But you have to admit, it's pretty weird that Omer Bhatti tells Jackson’s children, “Call me Michael” introduces himself as Michael and is changing his name.

“Omar has even told the children he's changed his name from Omar Jamal Bhatti to Omar Michael Bhatti,” a source close to the dysfunctional family reveals.

At various times Bhatti has told Blanket, Paris and Prince that he is their father, that their father sent him to take care of him and that he is "a real Jackson."

Omer Bhatti holds a picture of Michael Jackson. They must be related!

The chaotic environment of the L.A. compound where MJ’s children live with their grandma, Katherine Jackson, and others has been in the news a lot lately.

California’s Department of Children and Family Services visited several times recently and has an open investigation into a stun gun incident involving Blanket.

As for Bhatti, he's lived there for some time: “He has infiltrated the Jackson family in a way that many find to be disturbing and detrimental to the children.”

He dresses identical to Michael, who seemed to revel in the confusion and controversy Omer generated. Michael even told some people that Omar was his son.

Joe Jackson says he is as well. Still, detractors say that since Michael died, Bhatti has latched on to the family and is manipulating Michael’s kids constantly.

“Prince has been particularly vulnerable to Omar and his claims,” the family source said. “He’s starting to believe Omar’s claims that Michael is his father.”

Long lost love child? Or random dude exploiting Michael’s traumatized children? Either way, he's living off the Jacksons’ money! Sweet deal!
