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!

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!

Soccer star David Beckham is expected to miss the World Cup after apparently tearing his Achilles’ tendon Sunday in A.C. Milan’s 1-0 victory over Chievo Verona.

Beckham pulled up unchallenged in the center circle, hopped on his right leg, fell to the turf and shouted “It’s broken, it’s broken!” as he was carried off in tears.

A Worried Fan

He is expected to fly to Finland today to have surgery.

“He felt the muscle begin to come up, which is a typical symptom when you break an Achilles’ tendon,” Milan Coach Leonardo told Sky Sports. “It's a real blow.”

David Beckham's Achilles is torn, but the rest of that bod is okay.

The loss was also a blow for England's World Cup hopes, but likely not a devastating one since Beckham was not even assured a place on Fabio Capello’s roster.

England's national team is strongest in midfield, where David plays. Losing Wayne Rooney or Steven Gerrard would be far, far more troubling to their chances.

Serious soccer analysis aside, the injury could put his entire soccer career in peril, but on the plus side, that'd leave much more time for underwear modeling.

You gotta look on the bright side, right? You don't need two functional Achilles tendons to have a functional David Beckham shirtless. Might as well retire now!

Tiger Woods may be piecing his family life back together, but the troubled golfer still has a long way to go - and is the easiest of targets - in the court of public opinion.

A new season of South Park premieres Wednesday and the episode is all about Tiger. One can only imagine the kind of South Park quotes this is going to produce.

"It is such an important issue in America right now - the sex addiction outbreak," co-creator Matt Stone joked, referring to Woods' dalliances with waitresses.

"We're all really concerned about him."

Flanked by Cartman, Tiger Woods expresses deep regret.

The promotional pic above shows faux Woods during his apology speech last month, when he broke his silence for the first time since being outed as a sex fiend.

Like Family Guy, South Park is nothing if not an equal-opportunity, topical offender. Episodes have mocked Tom Cruise, Scientology, Michael Jackson's death and more.

At the very least, Stone and co-creator Trey Parker can point to Family Guy's recent controversy over Sarah Palin's Down Syndrome baby, or its classic HIV chorus line.

Anything regarding the Tiger Woods scandal will seem tame by comparison.

Fox's hit show Glee has been off the air since December, but when it returns next month, it will make up for lost time with a tribute to the great Lady Gaga.

Creator Ryan Murphy said, "We're doing an episode as a tribute to theatricality. We reached out to Lady Gaga and she said, 'Yes, I'd love to be a part of it.'

"So yes, we will be doing Lady Gaga this season."

We can only hope for a full-length cover of her "Telephone" video, complete with ridiculous costumes and references to her alleged hermaphrodite status.

Lady Gaga in Action Live

Glee has its work cut out to do this justice!

Whether that means you'll see Lady Gaga on Glee personally is unclear, but at the very least, the show will be basing an episode around the "Bad Romance" songstress.

Last year, Gaga was the subject of an entire episode of Gossip Girl, and helped craft an "epic performance art piece" for the series. So you never know what's in store.

Madonna famously gave Glee license to cover her entire catalog, and the hit show is so sought after by aspiring singers, some American Idol vets are getting negged.

Not everyone's game, though. Coldplay and Bryan Adams said no to having their songs covered on it. Because Bryan Adams has an impeccable reputation to protect?
