Another day, another violent Naomi Campbell outburst.

This time it was on a global scale! The temperamental supermodel threw a punch at an ABC News camera and stormed out of a heated interview.

Campbell in Cannes

Topics on the table? International controversy involving "blood diamonds," deposed African dictator Charles Taylor and crimes against humanity.

Campbell has been accused of receiving a "huge," uncut "blood diamond" from the ex-Liberian president, facing trial for crimes against humanity.

"I didn't receive a blood diamond and I'm not going to speak about that," Campbell spat angrily before storming off and punching the camera.

The late Kurt Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, says she considered committing suicide earlier this month - and that Courtney Love is already dead.

In a sense.

Courtney Love, Frances Bean Cobain

Revealing that she is a danger to herself, Love told NME, "I think a lot of people idealize suicide. I understand it. I had an episode two weeks ago."

"I was tempted to jump out of a window. I'm not saying why but the reason behind it is self-loathing. Wouldn't it be better if I was not there?"

I've always been pretty self-destructive. I need protection from myself," Love said, adding that she has decided to stop using her stage name.

"Courtney Love is dead," she said. "We've all decided we don't like her any more. We love her on stage, but I don't need her in my life."

The number 5150 comes to mind.

Whatever surname she goes by, Courtney is insane.

Asked how she would prefer to be addressed in the future, she replied: "Courtney Michelle. The name Courtney Love is a way to oppress me."

The 45-year-old singer, born Courtney Michelle Harrison, is back on the road with her band, Hole, which is releasing a new album this month.

Lastly, she says she's "sick" of answering questions about her marriage to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain: "I am not his spokesperson on Earth."

Unless she decides to weigh in on Robert Pattinson casting rumors, that is. It's a selective thing. What would her late husband be like now?

"I don't know what he'd be like now, he could be into society girls, be into fat girls, he could be homosexual. We don't know, he died at 27."

So profound. Probably a good thing their daughter Frances Bean Cobain isn't living with Courtney Love/Michelle/Whatever for the time being.

We hear Sweden is lovely this time of year.

Too bad Tiger Woods won't get to experience its natural splendor. Instead, he's livin' the swingin' single life while the wife and kids vacation there.

Tiger Woods' Kids

Elin Woods whisked away their two kids Sam, 2, and son Charlie, 14 months, for a trip to her home country earlier this week to visit her family.

An insider says "nonstop construction" continues on a house Elin purchased last year, prompting speculation that she's moving home for good.

"Working hard" to speed up renovations, "She and the kids are going to be spending most of the summer there," a source says. "Without Tiger."

As for beyond the summer?

At the top of Elin's to-do list is divorcing Tiger Woods, the world's #1 golfer and likely its #1 philanderer of moderately hot cocktail waitresses.

"It's 100% happening," the insider says of the divorce, which is ridiculous, as the source has no name, and neither Tiger or Elin confirmed it.

"Elin and her mom met with a lawyer."

Well, that clears it up, doesn't it?

Don't get us wrong, we fully expect them to split up. But to call it "100%" at this point is absurd, given the amount of things up in the air and lack of concrete information to go on. At the very least it's a ways off, as the source acknowledges:

"It's going to take a long time to go through. [But] she will go through with it. She is all about being a mom. She will do it slowly and carefully."

What SHOULD Elin do?

She may be gone from Dancing with the Stars, but Kate Gosselin isn't done dancing around legal crusades waged by her loser ex-husband Jon.

The royal douchebag will be pressing on with his "absentee mom" argument in custody court, in spite of the fact that Kate got booted Tuesday.

Why? Because if it's not DWTS, it'll be something else.

Jon's lawyer, Anthony List, says Dancing with the Stars "is the tip of the iceberg, as surely there will be many other projects to take its place."

The attorney notes that Kate has already signed on for two new shows, both on TLC, and scoffs that "She's always promoting something."

"Most of the time it's herself."

Kate got smoked on Dancing with the Stars. Will the reality mom soon be subject to a similar fate in court, thanks to new custody filings made by her douchebag ex?

Jon is asking the court for primary custody of their eight kids ... which is kind of a joke, as regardless of his complaints about Kate, what does he possibly have to offer them? Unemployment and nights out with mediocre girls?

But therein lies the rub. Jon also wants child support from Kate, who is hands down becoming the breadwinner in the dysfunctional family.

Whether he gets it is another story, as there are a whole host of reasons he should not, but Jonny seems determined to press on for now.

Who do you think should have custody of the Gosselin kids?

As a man who spends every night in front of CNN cameras, Larry King knows a thing or two about the power of the media and controlling stories.

But can he use that experience to control his own scandal?

The veteran journalist and talk show host is, as you know, about to divorce Shawn Southwick, who he's accused of cheating on (and vice versa).

With rumors about reconciliation and who's sleeping with who running wild, King put the kibosh on celebrity gossip - at least from Team Larry:

"Out of respect for the parties to discuss several ongoing issues including but certainly not limited to the welfare of the children, no one from the Larry King side is going to make any comment to the press for two weeks about anything."

Larry King's statement comes amid the most salacious report yet.

Yesterday, actor and Beverly Hills Little League coach Hector Penate pulled a Michelle McGee and blatantly bragged about alleged sex romps with Shawn Southwick.

Hector Penate went into real detail about nailing Southwick in Larry's bed, how she slept with him as retaliation for Larry doing her sister Shannon Engemann, etc.

She has denied the affair.

While truth and more gossip will come out (give or take 14 days' time), King's no-comment comment comes as he temporarily halts divorce proceedings.

The two are trying to "resolve some lingering issues," probably involving their two young sons. Or figuring out who exactly has been sleeping with who here.

Dancing with the Stars voters got it right this week.

Anytime Bruno says a performance needs a postmortem, not a critique, it's never a good sign. To that end, Kate Gosselin got the heave-ho she deserved.

But joining her in the bottom two, and not for the first time this season, was Pamela Anderson - “two of our most talked-about celebrities” as Len put it.

Is the same celebrity status that helped Kate last five weeks (five longer than earned) working against Pam, whose dancing has been more than solid?

“I was shocked the first time it happened,” says host Tom Bergeron. “And then a friend said, ‘Not everyone is salivating over her the way you are, Tom.’”

What he means is, Dancing with the Stars viewership skews towards women, and skews older. So perennial sex kitten Pam may be up against it here.

Pamela Anderson, Damian Whitewood Picture

Pam's partner, Damian Whitewood, knows she's an underdog for that reason.

“Everyone likes to see someone fall down,” he told TV Guide. “I’m dancing with a bombshell, and she has got a lot to prove. But the truth is, she’s just like [women viewers]. She’s a mom. She’s out there running after her kids."

"But she wants to learn to dance and she’s really dedicated to it.”

It shows. She may be a frequent celebrity gossip punchline, and searches for Pamela Anderson nude may forever trump her ballroom skills, but through five weeks, she's demonstrated surprising aptitude and commitment.

“She picks things up really quickly,” says Whitewood. “I throw things at her and if she doesn’t get it, she won’t stop until she does. The determination is there.”

The cast loves Anderson, too, for her self-deprecating sense of humor. Quite unlike their reaction to "Hate Gosselin," according to tabloid reports at least.

Pam says she considers herself on a steep learning curve. Fair enough. But how about giving her some props next week if the scores warrant it, America?

TELL THG: Who are you pulling for on Dancing with the Stars?

Emilio Masella, the Gold’s Gym trainer who began dating Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi in January, is finally speaking out about the Jersey Shore star.

Namely, how he got dumped over the phone. Voicemail even.

“I told Nicole I tried out for Real World and she was upset,” Masella told People, confirming that he had in fact tried out for another MTV show.

“She thought I was using her for the show which is ridiculous.”

An argument ensued, and at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, he received a voicemail from his angry girlfriend saying, “You’re nothing. You’re single.”

Emilio Masella was confused and tried to call her back, but she hung up on him. What he didn’t expect were the allegations of infidelity.

“I’d never cheat on her, I love her,” he says, and he is not pleased with Snooki hooking up with her costar Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

“I talked to her yesterday and I was like, I’d never do something so low,’” he says. “She said she hadn’t hooked up with anybody either - but she freakin’ lied ... She put out there that I cheated, and now the tables have turned. It sucks.”

Indeed.

And for the record, Masella assumed she’d be supportive, not critical, of his Real World audition: “I never asked for anything. She’s the one that pulled me into the spotlight, bringing me all these places. It seems like she’s jealous.”

Masella adds that Snooki was also worried that he was hanging out with girls, although he claims 80 percent of his friends are female.

“I talked to her yesterday afternoon and I fought with her,” he says. “I [told her] she has no reason to be mad - and she hung up on me. I told her, ‘You can’t expect me to stay home and never go out if you’re gone for two months.’”

“I’m not a scumbag. She’s being jealous and spiteful. I don’t know if she [broke up with me] on purpose so she could hook up with Mike ... I knew [her time on set] was going to be crazy, but I didn’t think it was going to be this crazy.”

We just can't wait for Season 2 to air.

Heidi Montag has decided not to sue The Hills creator, Adam DiVello, for alleged sexual harassment after all. You mean it was all a trumped-up stunt? Shock.

The surgically enhanced bimbo had accused DiVello of inappropriately groping her during a cast photo shoot in March, which seemed a little absurd to us.

For one, MTV stood by DiVello, said it investigated the matter and decried her harassment claim, while other stars like Lauren Conrad defended him too.

Secondly, look who we're talking about. Heidi Montag's fake boobs aren't even sexually attractive anymore ... there's a point in which it's comedic, not hot.

In any case, she consulted with her lawyers about a lawsuit, and a source tells the New York Post, "Heidi and Spencer Pratt have changed their minds." 

Those Are Some Big Breasts

GROPED: By Spencer, maybe. By Adam DiVello? Doubtful.

We've never known them to drop something, but hey, it got them a few hours of publicity, so it was probably a success for Speidi. Of the pair, the source said:

"They realized they should just move on."

Wonder why ... perhaps because they had no case and just used DiVello's name for PR, discrediting other legitimate harassment victims in the process?

Weak, guys. We enjoy the Tweeting rampages of Spencer Pratt as much as anyone, but there should be limitations. No need to make $h!t like this up.

Bride-to-be Carrie Underwood has her wedding day priorities set: Food.

She and Mike Fisher have set a wedding date, but it's "not one that we're openly talking about" and all she cares about is that it's "so laid back."

A Winner Again

Not exactly a Bridezilla or someone looking for attention at every turn.

Imagine when someone agrees to marry Kim Kardashian. There will be easily 10-20 Tweets per hour updating us on every facet of the process.

Carrie and Mike have picked out the "food and we know where we're going to be - the big hurdles." Everything else? "We don't care," she says.

Mike, you got a keeper dude.

Reports say Mike Fisher will marry Carrie Underwood this summer.

Carrie got engaged to Mike Fisher in December. While they've done all they can to keep the details private, they are clearly smitten with each other.

"Everybody would always ask me questions like, 'What have you always dreamt of? This is your day,'" says the 27-year-old American Idol winner.

"But truthfully I never even thought about it until I was engaged. I wasn't one of those little girls. So I have no idea what I'm doing, basically!"

Somehow we think she'll manage.

Jodie Sweetin's house is no longer full. Or some funnier Full House double entendre.

A judge has made her divorce from Cody Herpin official, her rep confirmed to E!.

Timberlake and Biel Photo

The marriage came to a crashing halt in all of three years for the pair.

Her transportation coordinator spouse, who she wed in July 2007 after just two months of dating, helped her bear a daughter, Zoie, the following April.

Soon after, she separated from Cody Herpin.

Things got ugly fast. He claimed Sweetin had fallen off the wagon and sought full custody of Zoie. She denied the allegations, insisting she was still sober.

Ultimately, they reached a truce and agreed to joint custody. But it's still over.

We really thought Jodie Sweetin and Cody Herpin would last, too ...
