In the past month or so, we've been told that Brad Pitt:

  1. Is sleeping on the couch
  2. Has been thrown out of the house
  3. Is in a fake relationship with Angelina Jolie

All of which are probably 100 percent true, right?

Of course. So it only makes sense that Brad is now said to have held a - dun-dun-dun! - secret meeting with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston during a trip to NYC.

According to the Daily Mail (UK), the pair, who ended a five-year marriage in 2005, met up at a hotel for an hour, and Brad "unloaded emotional baggage."

Brad Pitt told Jen, who still bursts into tears yearning for him, all about his problems with Angelina Jolie, with whom he hooked up after walking out on her.

It comes amid reports that Brad and Jennifer are in regular phone contact and their latest encounter marks their second private meeting this year!

Lonely Jennifer Aniston

Don't bet the farm on Brad and Jen getting back together, though.

A source added: "She was quick to tell him she wanted no part in his break-up with Angelina," and that she was reluctant to meet with Brad Pitt at all.

Still, the magazine alleges Brad got his mother Jane - who is famously still close to Jen - to persuade her to meet with him and give him some advice.

It comes amid claims that his four-year relationship with Angelina - with whom he has six children - has hit the rocks. Or is over. Who the heck knows.

Aniston was apparently brutally honest with Brad, which took place the Friday before last, telling him he was being selfish and had to figure things out.

Later that day, Brad flew back home to France with son Maddox. Now how about that? Jen may be destined to die alone, but she gives good advice!

This concludes this week's false Brad-Jen gossip. Some recent highlights (our personal favorite being that someone got Jennifer Aniston pregnant):

Nick Nolte's son, Brawley King Nolte, was arrested for suspicion of DUI and possession of a controlled substance yesterday in Santa Monica, Calif.

The dude struck another vehicle while making a lane change.

The 23-year-old showed signs of impairment, so the cops conducted field sobriety tests and arrested him. Brawley King Nolte's bail was set at $5,000.

He now joins his dad in our celebrity mug shot album! Check out father and son completing this rite of passage below, and vote for which is better ...

The late September wedding of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom continues to pique celebrity gossip readers' interest. And make both of them a lot of money.

Last week, we took you inside the wedding of the reality star and NBA player. Now, more pictures of the magical ceremony and reception have been released.

Here's the bride and groom (who's reportedly still hammering out a prenup, as this wedding wasn't legal or anything, but rather just done for E!'s purposes):

Do you think Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom make a cute couple?

Not only does OK! have quality pics of the bride and groom, but shots of Kim and Kourtney helping Khloe get ready, toasting together, and much more.

Talk about a match made in heaven. Khloe, Kim, Kourtney and E! make such a perfect fit, we can't ever see them parting ways. Oops, we meant Lamar.

Man.

We might have to start watching Heroes again, because if this future story line is any indication, the show is about to turn a creative corner and recapture the magic that made it one of TV's most riveting shows in 2006-2007.

A Pretty Panettiere Pic

Ha, we almost got through that with a straight face. In reality, the show will very likely continue to suck, though this cheap, shark-jumping stunt does look hot.

As Heroes spoilers have hinted for months, a Hayden Panettiere lesbian kiss is coming our way in next week's episode. The lucky girl involved? Madeline Zima.

Motivated by strong ratings urges and an exciting new desperation for publicity character, Claire opts for some girl-on-girl action with roommate Gretchen ...

Heroes sucks. As does Madeline Zima, with Hayden Panettiere's face.

Of course, the actual scene is likely brief and Claire is unlikely to go full-on G-on-G from here on out. But hey, they make a pretty cute couple, don't they?

What do you think of this? Just a cheap PR stunt, right? Do you even watch Heroes? Will you now? Prefer to just stare at some Hayden Panettiere pictures?

Comment away!

Her fellow stars of The Real Housewives of Orange County may have breast implants (okay, they definitely do, and some of those things are obscenely large).

But Gretchen Rossi won't go there.

Gretchen Picture

While it's a "personal struggle" to keep her breasts in their natural state, Rossi is willing to assume that burden in honor of her responsibility as a role model.

"It is hard to stay strong and not go under the knife because I'm surrounded by it," she told Fox News. "But ultimately I feel I have made the right choice."

"I can only hope it sets an example to young girls that you don't have to have any plastic surgery to feel beautiful and confident. I love you Kate Hudson!"

This classic picture of Gretchen Rossi nude also sets a great example (as do those infamous shots of her on the can) to all the young women out there.

Seriously, though, we do respect what Gretchen's saying about silicone-free ways, which she feels so strongly about that she started "The Gretchen Project."

That nebulous project is aimed at "finding alternative ways to maintain everlasting beauty without having to go under the knife." It's definitely a good cause!

Not as good a cause? Marrying with a dying man for his money, something which Gretchen Rossi was accused of (and Danielle Staub would not be above).

But she insists that's not her thing, either.

Rossi came under fire for getting engaged to the much older and very wealthy mogul Jeff Beitzel, who lost his battle with leukemia in September 2008.

"Everyone thinks I am a gold digger! But I made my own money before and make my own now," says Gretch, who has since been linked to Slade Smiley.

"I was a top selling real estate agent and was a very well do to and smart business woman. I've purchased my own home, my own car and everything. So technically speaking, 'sugar mama' might fit me better than a 'gold digger'," she said.

Noted.

"You can point any kind of laser at my face, but I don't think Botox is for me," Tina Fey says in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar. "I think it is bad."

Spoken as only a career comedienne can.

Fey also adds that certain celebrities who have "too much" Botox "look like their faces are full of candles - a shiny, shiny face. Festive. A holiday candle."

Still, she has concerns about her looks. Sometimes, on the set of 30 Rock, the entertainer of the year tells cameramen to "frame me from the waist up."

"If there is a shot that's bad, I can take it out," she adds.

"That is why L.A. is so bad, because they take your picture from any side. That is why people in L.A. maintain 360-degree fitness. I don't have the time."

Tina Fey looks terrific, and is entertaining as always.

A typical day for Fey, who has a daughter, Alice, 4, with her husband, composer Jeff Richmond: "Work, come home, play, kid bounce, work again, go to bed."

Lately, though, Fey says she has been making time for "shopping." Says the Saturday Night Live alum, "I am no longer the least stylish woman in the room."

As for her trademark glasses, recognizable from 30 Rock and in many SNL Tina Fey videos, "I don't wear them very much in real life because I need them to see only far away. And I don't wear them when I am dressed up, because I look like Tootsie."

Tina and many hilarious 30 Rock quotes return October 15.

Cara, Mady, Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin have had it.

Just as the Gosselin children were beginning to cope with the public demise of their parents’ marriage, the are forced with yet another heartbreaking loss:

A forced hiatus from their TLC show brought about by father Jon.

“They were wailing and sobbing; they are angry,” Kate said on the Today Show on October 5, arguing that the show must go on as she and the kids wish.

Jon pulled the plug on production last week, ostensibly because he cares about the best interests of the children. But as Nancy Grace called him out for yesterday, their kids' welfare was never an issue until the show was renamed just Kate Plus 8.

Despite saying he wants to keep his kids out of the spotlight, Jon seems to be seeking attention, partying and basking in the glow of his minor celebrity.

The Gosselin Kids Strike Back

Even their eight kids are starting to think Jon and Kate Gosselin suck.

“It was time to go, but our group started talking about an after party,” a member of his crew said of his recent night out in L.A. “Jon said, ‘I want to go to the party.’"

"By the time we got there, the party was breaking up, but he stayed.”

Also this week, the estranged couple have been arguing over the $200,000+ Jon reportedly took from their joint bank account, leaving Kate with a grand.

“I have a stack of bills,” Kate said, crying that she can't pay them.

While Jon calls Kate’s story a “complete fabrication,” the dude has been on a spending spree, jet setting around and hemorrhaging cash like a madman.

He’s not the only one, though. Kate is also guilty of airing dirty laundry, despite promises to keep things civil. All of which hurts her precious kids too.

“It’s hypocritical to say that ‘We have the children’s best interests at heart,’ then speak poorly about each other in the media,” a source says. “The children have a record of all this, and when they’re old enough, they’re going to see it.”

All we have to say: Free the Gosselin 8!

On last night's season episode of The Hills, Kristin and Justin-Bobby took their fake relationship to the next level, while Speidi argued about kids a lot.

Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff reviews the most recent memorable installment of MTV's "reality" hit, awarding and deducting points as it sees fit ...

Stacie to Kristin: "We're two, like, kinda bitches." So true, and so right. Plus 4.

These girls have really long, fake-looking hair. Except Jayde. She rules. Even.

Heidi Montag thinks having a child will "mature" Spencer Pratt. This logic is comically flawed, but is just the sort of thing an airhead like Heidi would actually believe, and she's far from the only woman to think this, so ... Even.

Lo seems a little uncomfortable at lunch with Kristin, twirling her hair like a madwoman. Kristin Cavallari trying to act makes us squirm, too. Plus 3.

It gets worse when Kristin says she'll mess with Audrina if she messes with her. Does MTV just hand Kristin a pile of quotes, all pertaining to bitchiness and being the girl version of a player, and tell her to work them in? Minus 5.

Speidi has neighbors. They look nice. We feel sorry for them. Minus 2.

Audrina Patridge invites the gang to an Epic Records concert event at an L.A. club. Yay, obvious but effective cross promotion! Vedera was pretty good too. Plus 2.

Props to Stephanie Pratt for flat-out asking what the band looks like and not even feigning interest in the music. Plus 2. Plus 3 more her disgust when it's a chick.

Chiara sighting! Plus 1.

Spencer Pratt on children: "I can barely be around adults, how am I supposed to be around kids?" Plus 8. Side note: How cute is the lil' neighbor kid Enzo!?

Later, the evil one tells his baby crazy wife that he wants to get his "tubes tied like tomorrow." Much like when a guy we knew in college used to say chicks wanted to "bone" him, we're not sure that phrase works for a guy. Minus 2.

Justin-Bobby arrives with Kristin - clean shaven, with his shirt buttoned all the way up, wearing suspenders - then slow dances and makes out with her. Who slow dances at a club? What is this, Laguna Beach senior prom? Minus 9.

OMFG is Justin-Bobby really wearing a sparkly, motorcycle helmet?!? He is. Minus 6.

Finally, the quote of the night goes to Casey Patridge: "Justin's a douche." Close second? Jayde Nicole, re: Kristin: "Omigod I can't stand her!" Plus 12.

TOTAL: +11! SEASON TOTAL: +20! The Hills can annoy the crap out of you sometimes, and may be totally scripted, but man, this show still entertains.

Last night on The City, Whitney Port's pal Roxy Olin made quite a splash during one of her first days on the job, while Olivia Palermo struggled yet again at Elle.

Below, our staff reviews the latest episode of the new "workplace drama" (and The Hills spinoff), awarding and deducting points as we see deem appropriate ...

City Pair

Roxy Olin: "I feel like I can get Kelly in, like, a second. I am, like, so serious about work." No. If you have to say that, girlfriend, it ain't true. Minus 7.

Kelly Cutrone drives a Ford so she doesn't get carjacked in NYC. Plus 4.

Meanwhile, over at Elle, Erin Kaplan assigns Olivia Palermo to buy some fake handbags off the street for an upcoming segment they're doing. The mere thought of this has gotta hurt for a silver-spoon fed rich girl like Olivia. Plus 3.

Their little sting not only involves a girl who's a quasi-famous socialite and on a reality TV show, but involves an MTV crew filming it. Real discreet. Minus 5.

In the end, Olivia can't even do this right. Work is, like, so hard compared to what she normally does. Which is, like, go to fancy parties and stuff. Minus 2.

Holy hell, that is one skinny model at the photo shoot. We're talking like Mischa Barton style. Minus 3. Way to promote a healthy body image, gang.

Roxy's big idea is for the model to get topless. A model for jeans. This is treated as if it were a revolutionary concept. Has no one seen a Calvin Klein ad before? All of their models are topless! Not that we're complaining. Even.

Plus 5 for Whitney warning Roxy that Kelly would be pissed if she didn't ask her before pitching this idea, and for being right. Always trust sage Whitney.

Poor Whitney Port worries that she's seen as the little girl that people walk all over. Don't be silly, Whit. You're the tall girl people walk all over. Minus 2.

The shady bag dealer is wearing a Konvict Muzik jacket. Akon would be proud. Plus 5.

TOTAL: -2. SEASON TOTAL: -3. Try it they might to make all this interesting, The City sort of falls short on execution. A lot more could have been done with Olivia's handbag drama, and there was far too little Whitney in general.

The LAPD will present the case against Dr. Conrad Murray, the sole suspect in the June 25 death of Michael Jackson, to the L.A. County D.A.'s office next week.

LAPD detectives planned to wrap up their exhaustive homicide investigation and present the case by the second week in October. They remain on schedule.

Authorities are waiting on some written evaluations by medical professionals who reviewed evidence surrounding Jackson's death of a suspected overdose.

Law enforcement sources say the medical reports are finally in and the LAPD plans to formally present the case to the D.A.'s office at some point next week.

After that, the D.A. will determine whether to file charges and what kind.

Dr. Conrad Murray Picture

Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson's personal doctor at the time of his death.

Prosecutors have been working with the LAPD for months now, so it's not as if the evidence will be a surprise. Sources say Dr. Murray remains the sole target.

A law enforcement source says there's a "70/30 chance" the D.A. will take the case to the L.A. County Grand Jury rather than charge Dr. Conrad Murray directly.

Murray's girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez, is expected to testify.

The source says this could be a complicated case - obviously - and the very lengthy preliminary hearing that could ensue wouldn't have much upside for prosecutors.

A grand jury indictment would prolong the process, as it would have to be seated and evidence presented, but it would be easy to get and avoids a hearing.

Stay tuned ...
