NBA star Shaquille O'Neal is being double-teamed by his wife and his mistress, and not in a basketball manner. Or a sexual manner, for that matter.

Shaq's estranged wife Shaunie O'Neal and enterprising mistress Vanessa Lopez are employing the same investigator to dig up dirt on the big fella.

It all started when Shaunie filed for divorce in November and hired an P.I. to find any info on Shaq's infidelity that could boost her financial settlement.

The investigator discovered Shaq’s multi-year affair with Vanessa Lopez, who's now represented by powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred and suing Shaq.

As if that didn't help Shaunie gain enough leverage, she actually reached out to Allred and Lopez – not to bash them, but to make the affair public!

2-ON-1: Vanessa Lopez and Shaunie O'Neal are hacking Shaq ... legally!

“Shaunie tried to convince Vanessa to go public about the affair before Vanessa did go public,” an inside source said. “And she wanted Vanessa to go to the police too, based on allegations she heard about Shaq harassing her."

“What she discovered about Shaq and Vanessa, gave Shaunie the ammunition she needed to file for divorce and try to get the money she wants.”

Vanessa Lopez eventually came forward, and then did Shaunie one better, claiming Shaq harassed her and even enlisted pals to "shut dat bitch up."

Using the info Shaunie's investigator found, such as Shaq's text messages, she's suing for assault, emotional distress, invasion of privacy and more.

Lopez was disgusted by  info shared by Shaunie, who even believes that someone put a GPS tracking system on her car. Shaunie is taking a no holds barred approach, pushing full steam ahead with the divorce and aiding Lopez as well.

Talk about good team defense turning into transition offense ... or something!

Michael Jackson's father, Joe, is "horrified" at the prospect of Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team arguing that Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal dose of Propofol.

The defense believes MJ woke up shortly before noon on the day he died, when Dr. Conrad Murray stepped out of the room, and decided to up his dosage. Big time.

Akon and Michael Jackson

Murray's lawyers are ready to argue that Michael's addictive personality makes it more than feasible that he injected far too much Propofol and stopped his heart.

But Joe Jackson ain't buying it.

"I don't believe it. It's not true," he said, asserting that Murray covered up evidence. "Why would he [Dr. Murray] hide all the bottles if such a story were true. The Coroner's report shows the story is not true. It really upsets me to hear this."

Joe Jackson never met a Michael Jackson CD lawsuit he didn't like.

While Murray's story definitely seems a bit out there, one can never really trust the motives of Michael's father, either. Sure, he's probably upset Michael died.

But any chance to make money, he pounces on!

Joe has also fired a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray, claiming he needs a big payday his actions were "reckless" and "amount to second degree murder."

Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, won't go that far, but adds, "His [Dr. Murray's] story is medically inconsistent with the autopsy findings ... I would need to see the photographs of the scene in order to assess his story."

He's been saying for some time that the involuntary manslaughter charge against Murray is not enough. Looks like Joe's now taking things into his own hands.

When it comes to self-love, Jessica Simpson is all about it. No, we don't mean that in a dirty way, just a high self-esteem way. She's comfortable in her own skin!

If she were to pick one favorite feature, though, what would it be?

"I like my nose, that's my favorite body part," she tells FOX News.

We'd have chosen these two body parts in a virtual dead heat.

"I do have a bump, but I like my profile," she continues. "But I don't think anyone else has my exact same nose, which I think is unique and just a little flawed."

Jessica Simpson's favorite body part on full display.

The alleged singer / actress says she "needed" last year's scrutiny on her appearance, which reached a fever pitch following those fat Jessica Simpson pics in mom jeans.

"I needed to find some light in the dark place I was in. People's judgments about me and my weight are none of my business. I found something that will help me deal."

What that is, we can't say. But she adds: "You really have to know who you are before you can truly fall in love and give your all. I don’t think a man can define you."

Okay then. Her new reality show The Price of Beauty has redefined terrible, even by VH1 standards, and has been floundering since its forgettable debut last month.

Its March 15 premiere netted just 1 million viewers, losing out to a rerun of NCIS, a TruTV series called Operation Repo and the History Channel's Pawn Stars.

It looks like Michael Jackson's addictive personality and need for instant gratification may become a critical component of Dr. Conrad Murray's legal strategy.

Yesterday we talked about how Dr. Murray's defense will argue that Michael Jackson killed himself by pumping a lethal dose of Propofol into his own body.

This happened, allegedly, when the doc left the room to use the can. Murray says he personally administered only an eighth of the amount in MJ's system.

That's far-fetched if you ask us. But to bolster the story, sources familiar with the defense's strategy say they plan to show it was in character for Michael.

Michael Jackson was a demanding celebrity, lawyers for Conrad Murray will claim, and a man-child who wanted what he wanted when he wanted it, period.

Even if it posed a danger to himself.

BLAME THE VICTIM: It's the only card Dr. Conrad Murray has left, and he's playing it. Valid or outrageous? A jury may have to make that determination in court.

Amazingly, the defense will use Coke to prove its point.

Not Coke as in cocaine, but plain ol' Coca-Cola. Michael Jackson apparently consumed massive quantities of the legendary soft drink, despite its caffeine content.

Jackson, an insomniac, knew full well that guzzling the stuff would make it hard to sleep, but he did not care. When the time came to sleep, he turned to drugs.

The defense will provide examples of MJ hyping himself up with caffeine from soda, then using drugs - including Propofol, an anesthesic - to knock himself out.

Basically, this is all meant to establish that he was an individual who demanded instant gratification, making the idea of Jackson waking up, seeing Dr. Murray was out of the room and self-medicating with massive amounts of Propofol believable.

Is it? What do you think? Did Michael Jackson play a role in his own demise, or is this shady doc trying to blame the victim to save his own a$$?

Jersey Shore only aired 10 episodes this winter, but that was enough to lure in millions of fans, make celebrities of the cast and introduce plenty of new vocabulary words, slang terminology and acronyms into the pop culture lexicon.

Case in point: The lovely Katy Perry was seen headed from the gym to Fred Segal's in W. Hollywood over the weekend wearing a shirt proclaiming simply GTL.

GTL, for those unfamiliar with Jersey Shore quotes, stands for Gym, Tan, Laundry. As in the daily routine of some of the Garden State guidos we grew to love.

While Vinny Guadagnino said that he prefers BPB (basketball, pool, beach), he was sadly outnumbered among the male cast members, and the term stuck.

Here's Katy giving props to DJ Pauly D and The Situation:

GTL

GTL: Katy Perry knocked off the first part, but somehow we don't imagine she went tanning after this photo was taken. Laundry? Maybe. Stay tuned for more updates.

Having already whored herself out for 15 minutes of fame and a couple of quick paychecks, what's left for Michelle McGee to do but ... ref Celebrity Boxing!?

No, seriously, she is. One of the bout's participants? Hailey Glassman, former Jon Gosselin plaything. Heartwarming to see these mediocre mistresses unite!

  • Michelle McGee Naked Pic
  • Celebrity Boxing Ref

Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman, who was romantically linked to Hailey at one point, confirmed to the New York Post that Jesse James' mistress will referee a May 7 bout between Glassman and porn star Gia Lynn.

Hailey Glassman and Jon Gosselin parted ways bitterly in December. He accused her of vandalizing his place, she accused him of having a two-inch package.

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee was the first of several Jesse James mistresses to cash in by blabbing to the media. Friday, the tattooed mother of two returned to work at Pure Platinum strip club in San Diego, Calif., where she performs topless.

Michelle McGee will officiate Hailey Glassman's next blowout fight - and we're not talking about when she slashes up Jon Gosselin's apartment with a butcher knife.

When she's not feuding with Chelsea Handler or getting pissed off at her haters on Facebook, McGee enjoys long walks on the beach and reading The Economist.

We totally made that up. The only real question left to ask here:

Which mediocre mistress would you rather ... you know?

Tiger Woods has landed in Augusta, Ga., for his golf comeback at the prestigious Masters tournament. Players, media and many fans are thrilled to see him.

His family? Not so much.

Wife Elin Nordegren Woods and their children were nowhere to be seen and are not expected to join the gallery when the tournament tees off on Thursday.

While no official statement has been made, she was last seen last week, without Tiger, checking out the Sony Ericsson Tennis Open in Key Biscayne, Fla.

Tiger, who was seen cracking jokes with a fellow PGA pro and even greeted reporters as he headed to a practice facility, will address the media Monday.

While he recently gave exclusive one-on-one interviews to the Golf Channel and ESPN, Tiger Woods' 2 p.m. press conference will be the first of its kind since ...

You know. The subject of his wife's whereabouts is sure to come up, but everything we've read suggests that we'll see a pissed-off Elin bail on the Masters.

After moving back in with him and helping rebuild his image, the couple took a step back amid a new batch of revelations from his mistress Joslyn James.

Nasty, violent, depraved text message revelations.

Elin has not indicated if she will divorce Tiger, citing concern for their kids, but certainly seems reluctant to support him publicly, at least for the time being.

JUST FYI: Because we know you care so much, Joslyn James and lawyer Gloria Allred will be holding their own press conference after Woods' media Q&A.

It will take more than a depraved stalker or threats on her life to prompt Erin Andrews to pack it in prematurely on ABC's Dancing With the Stars.

The ESPN reporter will perform on Monday night's live show despite recent threats by a crazy person to murder her. She says she's in it to win it.

Chaz Waves

"I'm glad I'm here. I don't want to let Maks down, I don't want to let my family down, and I don't want to let myself down," Andrews told People.

"I'm not going to stop living my life."

Erin will perform the waltz with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, her partner and rumored love. She says the time on the dance floor has been therapeutic.

"I don't quit on things. It's not an option for me," the 31-year-old says, having come face-to-face with yet another potentially terrifying situation.

Last month, Illinois resident and certified creep Michael David Barrett was sentenced to 30 months for filming her through a hotel room peephole.

Dude then posted clips of Erin Andrews nude online. We know she's hot, but that's the creepiest, most pathetic thing ever. Enjoy prison, Mike.

And go Erin and Maks tonight!

Lea Michele is Glee's leading lady.

Stephanie Pratt is The Hills' leading annoyance.

One of the two has had seriously bad plastic surgery.

Let the fashion face-off begin! The sister of Spencer Pratt rocked a one-strapped floral French Connection frock at a private dinner in Miami, Fla., while the actress paired the same sweet dress with peep-toe Mary Janes for a L.A. event.

Combine those dresses and you'd actually have a strap on each side. What a concept! But as they stand now, who looked more fab in their frock? Vote below!

Steph, Lea

The fashion face-off winner is totally ...

Jesse James mistress Michelle "Bombshell" McGee and celebrity gossip commentator Chelsea Handler are in the midst of an awesome feud. Here's the rundown:

Handler wrote that "Michelle really believed that Sandra Bullock and Jesse James were separated and was 'shocked' to see them at the Oscars. I guess she doesn't read magazines, which makes sense since she basically has one on her face."

Good one. Offended by the tattoo joke, McGee then retorted on Facebook that Handler should "use some of that botox from your forehead and put it in your flabby underarm skin... I've seen better wings in a bucket of KFC chicken."

Harsh. Handler then addressed those comments on Wednesday's Chelsea Lately, wrinkling her forehead and quipping, "look at my forehead you dumb bitch!"

It gets better still.

Michelle McGee is no fan of Chelsea Handler lately... or ever.

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee went on the offensive on Facebook, writing: "Dear Chelsea, glad to see my grandma's old clothes put to good use in your wardrobe." Oooh.

"Her mu-mu's look AMAZING on you. P.S. You need to hire another midget to hold up those saggy boobies. All that breast feeding Chuy has really taken its toll."

Chuy Bravo is Handler's personal assistant who appears on her E! show.

That was a low blow. Your move, Chels. Make it a good one!
