Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.

The celebrity gossip world's collective jaw pretty much hit the floor when it learned that reality star Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom were dating.

When they got married after knowing each other for only 32 days, that was even more out of left field. And quite possibly not even legally binding.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian Together

But still, insane! No one could believe what they were seeing.

We're just talking about ourselves here. So you can imagine Lara Manoukian - Lamar’s supposed girlfriend of seven years - was really shocked!

“My heart is destroyed,” Lara later told a friend, according to Star.

“I treated that fool like a king... from cooking to cleaning his place, anything you can think of, I’ve done for that man.... This dude has lost his mind!”

Lara Manoukian may not have really dated Lamar Odom, and may not even be a real person. But when she says "dude has lost his mind," you can't argue with her there!

While Lara’s heart is broken, her family isn’t shedding any tears over Khloé and Lamar’s September nuptials (follow the link for heartwarming wedding photos).

Her stepfather, Harry Diramarian, tells Star that the L.A. Lakers forward cheated on his stepdaughter repeatedly - long before Khloe Kardashian was in the mix.

"She feels betrayed because they were still a couple when Khloé entered the picture. They were breaking up and getting back together for seven years," he said.

"Lamar would cheat on her with other women.”

Lamar has two kids with ex Liza Morales, 10-year-old daughter Destiny and 7-year-old son Lamar, Jr. He has also been linked to Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson.

Motherhood suits Jennifer Hudson, the American Idol star and Oscar-winner says.

"I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy," says the Chicago native. "Who better to devote my time to than my own child?"

Jennifer gave birth to her first child, David – named after her fiancé, David Otunga – on August 10. From lullabies to bottle-feedings, she's been doing it all.

On keeping her pregnancy private: "David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant. I didn’t have any morning sickness, no cravings. I didn’t show until I was seven months so that made it easy."

On recovering from her c-section: "Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterward but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others."

"By that night after I had the baby, I'm like, 'Look, I can’t sit in this bed anymore."

On the personality of the younger David Otunga: "He has a lot of personality, like David. He’s a good sleeper. His favorite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you – he just cracks up like it’s the funniest thing."

"With a pacifier, it’s like he knows, ‘Ain’t nothing come out of here. No, I don’t want that. Where’s the real deal?’ His best friend is that bottle."

On her little guy's future career: "His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to go to school, get an education. My mom always said, 'Whatever you want to do, I'll support you as long as you’re happy.' So I will do the same."

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are reunited and it feels so good.

"I am happy in a relationship," he said Thursday on Good Day Philadelphia. "I was single for a minute there, and then we've kind of patched things up."

"She's a very smart girl," he gushed. "She's far smarter than I."

You probably never heard him say that about Jessica Simpson.

Hottest couple ever? Nick and Vanessa are vying for that title.

After nearly three years of dating, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo amicably split in June but remained "good friends." That phase was short-lived.

By late August, they were spotted kissing, making out and dancing together at Los Angeles bar Dime. The PDA parade only got better from there.

Lachey said soon after that rumored hookup that "We're trying to figure things out. I don't pretend to know what the future holds for us, but everything's good now. Vanessa's a good girl, and I care about her a lot."

Audrina Patridge is quite happy and single, thankyouverymuch.

But still, she can’t sit back and watch man-eater Kristin Cavallari steal her on-off boyfriend, Justin Brescia, a.k.a. Justin Bobby, without some bitterness.

On the season premiere of The Hills, new star Kristin flirted with Justin-Bobby, telling off Audrina and pals. Last week, she and J-B hooked up for real.

Audrina believes that Justin and Kristin are “just trying to make a good show, start drama, and trying to hype it up and I understand that,” she said.

“But at the same time, have a heart.”

"It’s hard to sit back and try to film with her and to try to be friends with her when someone is bashing you like that," Audrina Patridge says of Kristin.

Audrina, who is planning on doing her own reality show with Mark Burnett in December, is also turning a new page on the romantic front, leaving both Justin-Bobby and her most recent fling, BMX rider, Corey Bohan, in the dust.

“Corey and I are not together, we actually broke up a few weeks ago,” she said. “I couldn’t give 110 percent like he wanted, so I decided to break it off.”

As for Justin and Kristin's fake relationship, Audrina says she's come to terms with it. We don't expect her to be invited to the fake wedding, though.

It turns out the woman at the center of David Letterman's sex and extortion scandal is not banned from the The Late Show set as some media outlets reported.

"Stephanie Birkitt is on a paid leave of absence. TMZ's reporting that she is banned from the set or the building is incorrect," a rep for Worldwide Pants said.

Letterman in Action

Worldwide Pants is Letterman's production company.

Whatever Birkitt's status, Letterman has escaped any kind of official reprimand so far, remaining on air, cracking jokes at his expense and raking in ratings.

Stephanie Birkitt, 34, worked as David Letterman's former assistant on The Late Show before moving on to bigger and better things as his personal attorney.

Her ex-boyfriend, CBS News producer Robert "Joe" Halderman, was arrested for trying to extort $2 million from Letterman by threatening expose the affair.

Stephanie Birkitt was a recurring comic muse for Letterman.

But it wasn't just money motivating Halderman, according to reports. It was a grudge the star held against him for years, and most of all, it was jealousy.

As recently as August, Halderman saw Letterman and Birkitt passionately kissing in a car in the driveway of the Norwalk, Conn., home he shared with her.

According to a People source, Letterman and Birkitt "were seen making out in the driveway in August," despite her telling Halderman they were just friends.

"He drove her home once a week. The interesting thing was he lives in North Salem, New York. Driving her home to Norwalk wasn't exactly the next town."

Halderman and Birkitt lived together for several years. He reportedly left Dave a package with a copy of her diary and emails elaborating on their hookups.

It was previously believed that their affair had ended in 2003, before the birth of Letterman's son Harry, but these ecent reports seem to suggest otherwise.

Letterman apologized to his staff and his wife, Regina Lasko, who he married in March, on the air Monday, his first day back at work since the alleged plot.

While Jon Gosselin vies for revenge and (and a slew of available young women in the early 20s), estranged wife Kate is trying to win over the public with laughter.

Amid her increasingly bitter war of words with Jon, who is calling her an abusive monster, Kate managed to shoot a sketch for The Jay Leno Show last night.

As part of the "JMZ" series, in which the show mocks the paparazzi (the name is a clear play on TMZ), faux photographers descend on Kate in a parking lot.

Rather than treating them as if they were here douchebag husband, who she wants to keep away from her 24/7, she responds as if they were her eight kids.

After she orders a pap to his room car for disobeying her, one celebrity gossip shooter claims that "she has weird mom powers." It's actually kind of funny.

Of course, if Kate ever displayed a sense of humor instead of acting like the painful, grating human being she is, perhaps things would've gone differently.

Here's the clip of Kate Gosselin's cameo ...

Last night, Alex Rodriguez drove in a pair of runs and snapped an 0-for-29 skid with men on base as the New York Yankees defeated visiting Minnesota, 7-2.

Things are looking up for baseball's highest-paid player, who didn't suck in a playoff game for the first time in forever. Does his new girlfriend get the credit?

A day earlier and a few miles away, Kate Hudson was seen donning a wedding dress in Manhattan. Does that mean they are ready to walk down the aisle?

No. She was just doing a photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar.

But Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez are serious about making a life together. Pals say the smitten New York Yankees slugger is ready to make the Bride Wars star his wife, even getting her mom Goldie Hawn involved.

“Alex called Goldie and asked if she and [her partner] Kurt Russell would give their blessing to his asking Kate to marry him,” a friend reports.

“Alex is planning on doing it around New Year’s," the source adds.

We expect an on-field proposal from A-Rod after the Yankees clinch. But only after they clinch the Division Series, so there are more games left and it's kind of awkward.

"Usually Kate goes away with her family to Aspen, and Alex thought it would be romantic to do it front of a fireplace while snow was falling outside.”

Already acting like a married couple, A-Rod and Kate brought Ryder, her five-year-old son with rocker ex-husband Chris Robinson, along to look at luxury properties in NYC’s trendy Greenwich Village, SoHo and TriBeCa.

The previous week, Kate played mom to Natasha, 4, and Ella, 17 months, A-Rod’s two daughters with his ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez, as the pair toured six-bedroom homes on the West Coast, where the couple plans to reside this winter.

While Kate’s rep claims rumors that the beauty is engaged and already pregnant are “absolutely not true,” friends still worry she's moving too quickly.

“She did it with Chris, Owen Wilson and now Alex,” notes an insider. “[Kate's] a hopeless romantic. She jumps in head first and ignores the red flags.”

Looks like Dr. Conrad Murray could be in real trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with Michael Jackson and everything to do with child support.

Nenita Malibiran claims Murray, the suspect in the Michael Jackson case, and father of her 10-year-old son, is way behind in child support payments.

Malibiran, who now lives in the Sacramento area, obtained a judgment last month in San Jose, Calif., for $13,311.47 from Jackson's personal doctor.

The judgment was sent to the District Attorney's office in Las Vegas, Nev., which honors and enforces child support judgments from out of state.

Yesterday, the D.A. went before a hearing master (not a judge), who is supposed to hear the evidence and recommend appropriate action to a judge.

Dr. Conrad Murray was ordered to appear but was a no-show.

The hearing master recommended that a bench warrant be issued against Dr. Murray, who has 10 days from yesterday to come into court and deal with it.

If he doesn't, the judge will issue a warrant for his arrest - if he's not facing more serious charges in the death of Michael Jackson prior to that, of course.

Malibiran's former lawyer, Julie Brown, was quoted as saying that Dr. Murray was "habitually behind" on child support and was always "hiding income."

It has no bearing here, but Murray is also believed to have knocked up Nicole Alvarez, his current girlfriend, who welcomed a child earlier this year.

On the bad taste scale, South Park and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia vie for the top spot. Few other programs see no taboos when it comes to laughs.

Case in pint? Deceased celebrities.

Michael Jackson, DJ AM, Patrick Swayze, Farrah Fawcett, David Carradine, Walter Cronkite, Natasha Richardson, Dom DeLuise, Ed McMahon and Billy Mays, all of whom died this year, were resurrected by the Comedy Central cartoon.

With something for (the offending of ) everyone, the episode included Jackson taking possession of little Ike, Mays continuing to pitch products from the beyond and a final destination that ... well, we don't want to give it away.

Here's a brief clip of Michael Jackson on South Park ...

What do you think?

Say what you will about him, Jon Gosselin does not half-ass anything.

He's promised fireworks this afternoon if Kate tries to stop him from seeing their twin girls on their birthday (happy birthday, Mady and Cara!), and he's launching a full offensive on both the talk show and celebrity news tabloid circuits.

Jon is apparently telling friends that his estranged wife Kate - whom he has dubbed "monster mom" - is not only a raging b!tch, she's abusing their kids.

"Jon says she spanks the kids all the time," a source says.

"All she has to do is look at them and they get scared."

We remember when Kate spanked Leah over the summer. Scary stuff. No wonder Jon is doing what he can to protect his kids and look out for their best interests.

Oh, who are we kidding. He's primarily out for (dun dun dun) ... REVENGE!

We've got to get these two into a cage to settle this for good.

One of Jon's moles tells Us Weekly that Kate "kicked a lego building into a million pieces because the boys didn't put it away the first time she asked them to."

Kate Gosselin also "barely talks" to her children, while "the nannies are doing 95 percent of the work. Kate has a short attention span. Everything upsets her."

To be fair, Jon isn't that much better. A source actually says he overheard him ask a member of the paparazzi what time his own kids get home from school.

He also "gets annoyed when they interrupt him if he's on the phone."

What's more, Jon instructs photographers to yell certain things at his ex to really get under her skin, while Kate throws temper tantrums and cries in her car.

Perhaps best of all, Jon Gosselin is supposedly planning a "F*%k you, Kate" party for when the divorce is final. Hey, the kids already hate him, so why not?

Whose side are you on?
