Stories about Spencer Pratt and his plastic wife keep on getting more ridiculous. The latest? The Hills' resident villain is addicted to crystal, allegedly.

Not crystal meth or Cristal, just ... crystals.

In an effort to find enlightenment (he's very spiritual), he's been seen with his favorite rock recently. Honestly, there are photos. Says Spencer Pratt:

“I am so addicted to crystals, it’s a sickness. I’ve spent $500,000 on crystals this year. I checked my bank account last night, and I have $203 left.”

Lies. But humorous ones at least.

During Valentine's Day, Speidi "hung out with our puppies and cuddled with our crystal. It’s supposed to bring love. There’s a whole science to this. I’m not crazy.”

No, of course not. Although he may be lying. We saw Speidi's Valentine's Day pictures, and let's just say it involved lingerie, chocolates and ... we're gonna puke.

As for the new fascination of Spencer Pratt, he might be overpaying at half a million for one crystal, according to an expert hilariously cited by Life & Style ...

“Certain crystals are associated with different types of energy, yes. But [$500K] doesn’t sound right to me. Most of our crystals range from $1 to $100.”

So he's either full of it or overpaid by about 5,000 times the market value. Somehow we'd bet on the former. Think how much plastic surgery that'd buy.

As a figure of speech, of course. As the upstanding host and pimp of The Bachelor for approximately 200 seasons, Chris Harrison always gets the last word in.

Usually, it's "ladies ... the final rose tonight." This week, he's speaking one last time on the Rozlyn Papa scandal that resurfaced on the "Women Tell All" special.

"You won't hear me speak out about Rozlyn any more after this interview," Chris told E!. "All I wanted was for everybody to see what you saw in the special."

"I think everybody should and will be moving on now."

All he wanted was to show you an edited version of him railroading Rozlyn? Perhaps, but Chris was nothing if not cool, calm, collected and classy on Monday.

Chris and Rozlyn

After Rozlyn Papa insinuated that he hit on the wife of Ryan Callahan (the producer Rozlyn was booted for her relationship with), Chris simply shrugged it off.

It's hard out there for a pimp, but you gotta persevere.

"I feel really good about it," Chris said. "I wanted the audience to hear the details, what the women saw, how [Rozlyn and the producer] made it so obvious."

Rozlyn still denies anything inappropriate took place with Callahan, but that's fine with Chris, who's confident the evidence was presented and the point made.

As for Monday's finale, when we'll finally learn if The Bachelor spoilers of Vienna winning are nauseatingly true and how Jake and his airhead bride are doing?

"I feel bad if this [scandal] has taken away from our finale," Chris said. "I hope people will move on, because Tenley, Vienna and Jake deserve it. It's a really good finale; it's one of the most beautiful finales we've ever had. It'll be really great to watch."

Who do you believe in The Bachelor scandal?

Last we heard, Whitney Port had a new man in her life. But are she and The Buried Life star Ben Nemtin an official couple, or still in the beginning stages?

We ask because Whit has been soliciting dates on her official site, and asking fans to weed out the prospects. Not a bad project for fans of The City star.

In honor of the new movie She's Out of My League, Whitney Port is doing a promotion where a lucky applicant can win a date with her in the Big Apple.

Understandably, there was no shortage of applicants.

Looking For a Date

"Thanks so much to everyone who entered to win a date with me!" she wrote.

"I had so much fun reading all of your comments, and after a lot of thought I was able to narrow it down to five semi-finalists who I had submit videos." 

"I wanted to share them with you so you could help me pick a winner," Whitney Port added. "Please leave comments and help me decide who I should choose!"

Sadly, none of our interns were picked. Which is too bad, because they seriously heart Whitney. Oh well. To help our girl screen prospective dates, click here.

She may really need our help, too. The taste she's shown on two seasons of The City has been suspect. Freddie Fackelmayer? Please tell us that was staged.

They both star on MTV reality shows, but Jenni Farley is no Heidi Montag. You won't be seeing her get 10 operations in one day. She may not even get one.

Despite rumors that she’s getting ready to go under the knife for a second round of breast implants, Jersey Shore star Jenni, a.k.a. “JWOWW,” says no way.

A girl's got integrity, after all.

During an appearance on The View Tuesday, the large-chested JWOWW was asked if she was planning to get even bigger implants, as has been reported.

“No,” she said.

JWOWW in the famed yellow shirt. That's just wrong.

The reality star did note, though, that she would be willing to replace the ones she has. Could that mean with bigger ones? Can they even make bigger ones than that?

“I got [the implants] when I was younger; at a certain age you can only get saline not silicone,” she said. “That’s the only thing I would consider … Switching them.”

Good to know.

JWOWW and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast are set to “escape the cold Northeast and find themselves in a new destination” for a second season of their reality hit.

That Season 2 destination? South Beach. Holla!

She'd be down, but due to her settlement with Tiger Woods, Rachel Uchitel cannot participate in the mistress beauty pageant that Howard Stern wants to throw.

Sad, we know. But this is Howard Stern we're talking about. He is a resourceful, driven individual, and he's not about to let this genius idea fall by the wayside.

One of Rachel's friends approached Howard's people today, asking that a cardboard version of Rachel in various states of dress could compete in the pageant.

Yes, really. Stern's show is trying to put it together and offer a $100,000 prize. Best of all? He's already got four Tiger Woods mistresses lined up to take part.

Living, breathing ones!

Rachel Uchitel was Tiger Woods' favorite mistress, and the first to be exposed. She'd likely win a beauty contest of all of his mistresses, if she were allowed to take part.

He's not saying who, but you know Jaimee Grubbs is game, and rest assured, a cardboard cutout of Rachel Uchitel could still easily win this title.

Joslyn James, Tiger? Really? Theresa Rogers? Honestly, dude?

In case you were unaware, the reason Uchitel can't participate is because of the seven-figure deal she signed with his camp to keep quiet about their affair.

This apparently wouldn't constitute discretion ... wonder why.

Who do you think is the hottest Tiger Woods mistress?

Actor Gary Busey and his girlfriend, Steffanie Sampson, welcomed their first child together early Tuesday morning. Congratulations to the new parents!

The 65-year-old Oscar nominee (for 1978's Buddy Holly Story) and the 40-year-old Sampson named the boy - born at 6:40 a.m. - Luke Samson Busey.

He weighed in at 6 lbs., 7 oz.

"This feels like a dream," the pair said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight. "We feel blessed and are overwhelmed with happiness at Luke's arrival."

Gary Busey's 38-year-old son Jake (with ex Judy Helkenberg) was the couple's first hospital visitor. What wonderful, celebratory news for all involved!

The fabulous Lady Gaga appears topless on the cover and inside the pages of Q magazine this month. She also appears to be packing some serious bulge.

We're just saying.

Whatever that foot-long surprise might be, it's either meant as a joke based on the hermaphrodite rumors that continue to follow her, or as an effort to fuel them.

Man parts or not, she's looking pretty amazing. It's nice to see the singer without her trademark face mask or hair phone ... or any sort of shirt, let's be honest!

Lady Gaga actually clarified what this cover is all about.

“We all know one of the biggest talking points of the year was that I have a d**k, so why not give them what they want? I want to wear a d**k strapped to my vagina," she told Q. "I also carry myself onstage in a masculine way and sing in a low register."

"This is not out of nowhere, right? I want to comment on that in a beautiful, artistic way. How I wanna show it. And I want to call this piece Lady Gaga Dies Hard.”

We have no reply other than that this chick is certifiably awesome.

In addition to discussing the public's fascination with whether or not Lady Gaga has man parts, she delves into how it relates to gender stereotypes involving sex.

“If a guy says, ‘Oh I f****d all these chicks this week,’ there’s a high-five and giggling. But when a woman does that and it's publicized or she is open about her sexuality or she’s free or liberated, it’s, ‘Oh, well, she must have a d**k’."

Once again ... awesome.

Lady Gaga Topless Photo

Lady Gaga bares her soul (and top) in Q Magazine.

Liberated as she is, the Lady was said to be a bit of a diva during this photo shoot, threatening to walk out unless her boyfriend was allowed to photograph her.

That would be Matthew Williams. She reportedly said, “I’m just not in a good place right now.” It's hard being a music star possibly representing both genders.

Is Lady Gaga a hermaphrodite?

Earlier, we reported about teen mom Bristol Palin's upcoming cameo on ABC Famliy's The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Give it up for family values!

Isn't this hypocritical and counterproductive? Isn't having Bristol Palin on the show basically glorifying teen pregnancy? The network said in a press release:

"Bristol Palin is the most famous teenage mother in America. We're thrilled to have her join us, and I think she will bring additional attention to the issues facing teen parents that we've been exploring for a couple of seasons now."

"I am thrilled to be on this show and to be a part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy,” said Palin.

What a crock.

  • They Chose Life
  • Bristol Palin and Her Baby

Bristol Palin has chosen life. And apparently fame.

By putting a teen mom in any popular entertainment medium, ABC Family is (indirectly if not overtly) celebrating the fact that she's a teen who got pregnant.

After all, Bristol Palin is known for exactly two things:

  1. Being the daughter of Sarah Palin
  2. Getting knocked up by Levi Johnston

Now her famous mom wants to utilize that fact to make Bristol a celebrity while espousing family values at the same time. It's as disgusting as it is laughable.

Not to mention the ridiculousness of Sarah's claims last week about her family being off limits. Guess that only applies if Family Guy takes shots at them, eh?

This isn't Bristol's first dubious attempt to have it both ways. Last year, she was named Candie's "Teen Pregnancy Ambassador." What does that even mean? Especially from a clothing line whose ads feature Britney Spears in booty shorts?

2008: The seeds of celebrity (and Tripp Johnston) are sown.

Apparently it matters not, because it's all about making money off THE MOST FAMOUS TEEN MOM EVER! Really, ABC Family? This is your marketing hook?

Altruism, this is not. If education and prevention are really your goals, start doing public service announcements or donating time and money to charity.

If the Palins want to shamelessly promote the Palins and teen pregnancy, great. But let's call it what it is - self-serving PR under the guise of "education."

We want to hear what you think: What is Bristol Palin's appearance on The Secret Life of the American Teenager going to accomplish?

Police in Vancouver, B.C., are hopeful that actor Andrew Koenig is alive and simply laying low. The Growing Pains star has been missing more than a week.

Investigators haven't found the actor, who has not been heard from since the week before last, but say they remain "hopeful" he's out there and is alive.

The publicity surrounding the disappearance of Koenig has triggered many tips to the Vancouver Police Department, according to Constable Tim Fanning.

"Right now we feel like we've really exhausted our resources on this case," Fanning told E! News today. "So [the many new leads are] good news."

"Our detectives are following up on a number of new tips."

Hopefully, Growing Pains star Andrew Koenig will turn up.

So far, though, police have been unable to confirm any new sightings of Koenig since February 14. Fanning declined to comment on a "despondent" letter from Koenig that his father, former Star Trek star Walter Koenig, referenced on his website.

Police have also notified officers and employees in and around Stanley Park, where Andrew was last seen and liked to visit, to stay on watch for any information.

The 41-year-old Koenig emptied out his apartment in Venice, Calif., recently, a friend says, because he wanted to start over in Vancouver, his "place for solace."

Fellow Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron recently released a statement pleading for his friend to contact him: "I am praying for his family during this time of distress and for his safe return," he said. "Andrew, if you're reading this, please call me."

Tiger Woods finally emerged from seclusion and apologized to family, friends, fans and business associates Friday in an emotional, 13-minute, prepared statement.

Saying he is deeply sorry for his actions and letting down pretty much the whole world, the golf legend began the long process of rebuilding his shattered image.

When and if he accomplishes that goal remains to be seen, but he is pulling out all the stops right now. Today, his young daughter's school got a special apology.

Tiger and Elin Nordegren Woods have issued a letter of apology to the parents at the Florida school where their 2-year-old Sam Alexis Woods attends day care.

Can Tiger claw his way back to respectability?

In the letter, Tiger says he's sorry but again blames the paparazzi as much as himself for creating an "inconvenience" around Premier Academy in Windermere.

It's not likely to move anyone to tears (like this guy) as his mea culpa did last week, but at least Woods realizes the wide-ranging consequences of his actions.

Follow the jump for the full text of the letter ...
