Tila Tequila is an attention whore of the worst kind.

Which is normally all good. Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag know what they are and have no qualms about milking every ounce of PR they possibly can.

Trying to cash in and plug "future projects" (whatever the hell those are) by calling attention to a violent assault you claim to have suffered is low, though.

Even for a woman who calls herself Tila Tequila.

A week after she says she was assaulted by Shawne Merriman, her NFL star boyfriend, Tila has reached out to her fans with a voicemail message.

Rather than laying low and letting this die down, her plea for this "nightmare" to go away is really just a ploy to get more attention and publicity.

“I’m just trying to get away from this horrible nightmare,” she says, adding that she just wants to move on, which is totally untrue, as this has her back in the news. “Everything’s gonna be alright. I’m just trying to look forward now.”

If that were true, why post this voicemail?

After lying about wanting to focus on something else (as she herself brings the incident up again), Tila encourages fans to give her a call at 860-256-8452.

We just hope her password is 1234 like Lindsay Lohan's voicemail.

Here's Tila's shameless ploy for attention message to her "fans" ...

The much-touted Michael Jackson tribute concert being hastily planned in Vienna, Austria, for later this month has now been postponed until 2010.

Having no artists will often necessitate such a move.

Citing scheduling conflicts, the mega-event's promoter, Georg Kindel, made the announcement today and said the concert would now take place in London.

As for the reason, Kindel said they "underestimated" the scheduling issues of many performers, including Natalie Cole, Chris Brown and Mary J. Blige.

All were promoted as being part of the event, and may very well like to be, but were clearly not going to be this month, as they denied involvement.

A concert tribute to Michael Jackson won't happen until June.

Michael's brother Jermaine Jackson, who was helping put the show together, just posted a long-winded apology and explanation, that reads, in part:

"Instead of just eight weeks we now have eight months to prepare and some of the stars who would not have been able to participate in the Vienna concert, but expressed their wish to participate in this event, will be able to perform live."

"The event will be at the renowned Wembley Stadium in London in June 2010."

Michael Jackson himself performed at the English capital's stadium 15 times.

The organizers, World Tribute Productions, said all ticket holders for the Vienna concert will receive refunds. Over 65,000 fans were expected.

The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris is about to take a big step.

Surprisingly, she's not dumping Ed Swiderski, her fiance, despite rumors of him giving it to more women than Jon Gosselin over the past few months.

First Impression

The Canadian cutie is moving to Chicago to be with her man on Tuesday, she dished Thursday: "I'm all packed up and ready to go," the 30-year-old said.

E! tracked down Jillian at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in N.Y.C., where her date was an entirely different bachelor than the one who put a ring on it.

Mike Steinberg, the New York-based baseball camp owner whom Jillian Harris nixed in episode four, accompanied her to the catwalk. It was Ed's idea!

"Ed was supposed to be here today but then he couldn't book his flight," she explained. "Ed and he have been really good friends since the show. So Ed's like, 'Why don't you have Steinberg sit in for me? That'll make some great news.'"

The future Mrs. Ed Swiderski also mentioned spending time with The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and his runner-up-turned-fiancee, Molly Malaney.

Jason and Molly aren't engaged - for now. But Jillian is, and she's already planning her wedding to Ed. Just not aggressively planning it right away.

"I think everybody witnessed that it could be so intense right after the show was over. We want to try to live a normal life and get to the point where we live together and we really come together, then start planning," she said.

Surprisingly logical for a reality TV star. Not that Jillian Harris doesn't already have a few of the wedding details picked out. Or most, or all of them.

"I want to have a couple cakes, a live band and maybe like 100 people there, that's it," she said. "Probably in my parents' backyard. Totally low key."

As for babies, they're in the far off future for now: "I'm very excited to have kids but I'm excited to have a place for my clothes first," she says.

Asked who should be the next star of The Bachelor, Jill said that Reid Rosenthal would be the ideal choice, because he's "a solid package."

That he is. But who do you think should be The Bachelor?

Lindsay Lohan is either a buffoon or on drugs. Possibly both.

Two pieces of advice to all the anorexic coke heads out there:

  1. Don't put your cellphone number online
  2. If you do, don't make the password 1234

This may seem like common sense, but we are talking about Lindsay Lohan. This is a girl who posts nonsensical, strung-out rants at her lesbian lover on Twitter.

This is also a girl who gets robbed routinely. Her alarm system code is probably 1234 too, or it's written down on post-its all over the house so she won't forget.

She'll never be accused of being smart.

In any case, her voicemails were obtained, then posted online. Most are from drunk morons squandering the prank call opportunity of a lifetime, or people trying to get Samantha Ronson to DJ (really) or just have coffee with Linds.

But the most desperate comes from her father Michael Lohan, who cries about how he wants to see LiLo's sis Ali Lohan, but she doesn't want him to.

In a second message, Michael tells Lindsay that he bought her CD at 7-11 and thinks it's "so beautiful." It's hard to say if he's more sleazy or pathetic.

Listen to the compilation of Lindsay Lohan voicemail below:

Jessica Seinfeld’s recipes are all hers, a federal judge has ruled.

The wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld did not copy from another author in her cookbook about sneaking vegetables into children’s food, as alleged in a copyright infringement case brought by a competing author, Missy Chase Lapine.

Jerry Seinfeld and Wife

Lapine said she had twice submitted a book proposal about sneaking healthy foods into children’s meals to HarperCollins, and was twice rejected.

An imprint of Perseus Books finally published The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals in April 2007.

Five months later, HarperCollins published Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook, Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food.

A judge says Jessica Seinfeld did not bogart any recipes.

Missy Chase Lapine then brought a case against Jessica Seinfeld, accusing her of copyright infringement, trademark violations and unfair competition.

Although the judge found some similarities, she said that “no reasonable fact finder could conclude” that the books “have the same aesthetic appeal.”

“Lapine’s cookbook is a dry, rather text-heavy work,” Judge Laura Taylor Swain of Federal District Court wrote in her review, while Mrs. Seinfeld’s “cookbook has a completely different feel and appears to be directed to a different audience.”

In other Seinfeld news, Jerry and his former co-stars will soon be reuniting - and producing great Curb Your Enthusiasm quotes - on Larry David's HBO hit.

Lady Gaga seems to really hate pants. Or at least have no use for those pesky things. It's a bold position we certainly can appreciate, and commend.

She takes it to a new level, though.

It's one thing for our interns to write celebrity gossip news in their underwear, quite another for an international pop icon to parade around like this:

Lady Gaga: No Pants Picture

Toting a beautiful bouquet, and sans pants, Lady Gaga leaves a Paris hotel.

Could this be her way of proving to the world that she is not a hermaphrodite? If so, it appears effective. Nope, doesn't look like any penis up in there.

Her vagina, which was apparently offended by the rumor, has decided to strike back by making sure it is on display, or darn close, at every opportunity.

The star's next stop is N.Y. City, where she'll perform on the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday. Hopefully that results in a watershed fashion moment.

Or at least Lady Gaga naked on stage.

For now, click to enlarge pictures of the pantsless Gaga tossing a bouquet of flowers to her adoring fans as she leaves hotel La Tremoille in Paris ...

Paris Hilton wore a cute t-shirt proclaiming her feelings for her one and only true love - Paris Hilton - as she walked through LAX airport yesterday.

Also there was Doug Reinhardt, who she recently got back together with. Hopefully Doug realizes who the true object of her affection is, though ...

I Heart Paris Hilton

We're not sure who's slumming it more here.

After a temporary break, Doug Reinhardt is said to have stopped at nothing to win back his girl. He's a true romantic, renting private islands for their vacations and Twittering non-stop about how in love he is. It's adorable nauseating.

In any case, they appeared to be going strong and madly in love, or at least faking it well, when they arrived at LAX airport, full of PDA yesterday afternoon.

Former actor and current sex tape sellout Dustin Diamond is being sued for more than $21,000 in unpaid property taxes and had his car repossessed.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

The 32-year-old loser, who found fame playing dorky Samuel “Screech” Powers on the TV hit Saved By The Bell, seems to have hit financial hard times.

He was sued by Ford Motor Credit Company in November 2008 for $544, which ultimately resulted in the repossession of his 2005 Ford Expedition.

Way to buy a car you can't afford, Screech. Did Mr. Belding teach you nothing? Moreover, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue is suing him for $21,015.62.

That's the amount of unpaid taxes he owes on his house in Port Washington, Wisc. He was also hit with a small claim by Wisconsin Electric Power Company.

Oh, and there's that issue with the IRS.

After Saved By The Bell ended in 2000, Dustin Diamond appeared in a few reality shows, including The Weakest Link, Celebrity Boxing 2 and Celebrity Fit Club.

Lame, but innocent enough. Things too a really dirty turn in 2006.

That's when he infamously starred in the revolving sex tape tape Screeched, a.k.a. Saved By The Smell, which showed him defiling a pair of local women.

Diamond - who has also done stints as a stand-up comic – claimed the tape was leaked as a mistake but his manager conceded he hoped it'd his profile.

He's also coming out with Behind the Bell, a behind-the-scenes tell-all about the Saved By the Bell cast. Apparently it's not being pre-ordered too much.

Worst of all, Behind the Bell got him uninvited from the Saved By the Bell reunion. That's a bigger insult than anything the IRS could possibly to do him.

Kendra Wilkinson enjoyed a special baby shower for her son, Hank Baskett IV, who is tentatively listed as probable to be born on Christmas Day.

Who better to throw her a perfect shower than BFFs and former Girls Next Door co-stars Bridget Marquard and Holly Madison? No one, that's who.

The festivities took place at longtime Playboy secretary Mary O’Connor’s house just outside L.A., and the theme was pickles and Candyland.

Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt arrived early to decorate the house with tons of blue balloons and streamers in honor of their friend's baby.

Here's K-Dubs getting ready to devour some serious pickle ...

Pickles

THAT THING IS HUGE: Seriously, check out Kendra's bump!

Also in attendance were Kendra's "ex," Hugh Hefner, and the array of Hef's whores, a.k.a. Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

Hef, who even put on clothes for the occasion, wouldn't miss it for anything. Well, unless Kimberley Conrad were there, then he would've sat it out.

“The girls are going to Kendra's baby shower today,” he Twittered. “Crystal, the Twins, Holly, Bridget & Kendra will all be there. How can I stay away?”

The house was also filled with multicolored lollipops, taffy candy, and cupcakes. Marquardt herself baked hundreds of miniature cupcakes for the event.

“Just got done baking, frosting and decorating a ton of mini cupcakes for Kendra's baby shower. It's been a busy day. I'm exhausted,” she Twittered.

It is only fitting that Nicole Richie, who just became a mom for the second time, took to Twitter to tweet for joy about her new baby bird ... er, boy, Sparrow.

After the birth of their son yesterday Nicole and fiance Joel Madden each went online to express their love for themselves publicity Twitter itself their child.

"What a great day to come back on Twitter," Nicole wrote, somehow without sarcasm. "Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I love my family!!"

That's good. We wouldn't have believed it, and it probably wouldn't even be true if she hadn't written about it online for 639,351 of her closest friends.

Joel also lamely Twittered props to his son: "1st day of his life & my son is already a trending topic on twitter. That's right son, ur just like your old man."

We're happy the baby is healthy and all, guys, but get a life. Go hang out with Sparrow. Occasional updates are great, but so is the idea of moderation.

Is the nanny busy caring for the baby while you Twitter about it?

Harlow has yet to welcome Sparrow to the world on Twitter. Get on it, girl!
