Brittany Murphy’s husband Simon Monjack is furious over a report that the star obtained medication - a majority of which is MIA - just before she died.

The late actress, who died in December, allegedly secured a prescription for 120 hydrocodone pills 11 days before her death. Only 11 were found after.

At the recommended maximum of four per day, she would have taken only 44 of them, and you can do the math there. So where are the missing pills?

Monjack says the pills were prescribed to Brittany’s mom Sharon, a cancer survivor, and the report is so outrageous that he's considering legal action.

What a surprise there.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

THE MONJACKS: Simon Monjack has been outspoken since Brittany's passing. Is he trying to clear her name, or his own? What is his agenda at the end of the day?

The release of Brittany Murphy’s autopsy report on February 26 ended all rumors and hurtful speculation that the actress had abused drugs, Simon says.

But a day after that report was released, a website claimed that 109 pills were missing from a bottle of 120, leading to renewed speculation over Murphy.

The article asked why so many pills prescribed in the first place, and by whom, while saying Simon Monjack has provided no help in locating the doctor.

As always, the bad seed has his own version of events.

Most artists have outfits. The more bombastic ones have costumes.

Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga are in their own league, though. These two take fashion to a new level, turning each getup into a performance art piece.

Not even Adam can match Gaga's outrageous creativity in this field, either. When the girl wears lobsters, lightning and antlers on her head, who can?!

Somehow, it just works because it's Lady Gaga. What can we say.

Dr. Conrad Murray may have hidden and tried to cover up the means by which Michael Jackson died on June 25, according to law enforcement sources.

MJ received his final, fatal dose of Propofol through an IV in his leg, and Murray told cops he administered only a very small amount of Propofol: 2.5ml.

But Dr. John Dombrowski, a noted anesthesiologist who reviewed the LAPD file for detectives, tells TMZ that 2.5ml couldn't even put Jackson to sleep.

Let alone kill the man.

The autopsy report, to that end, notes the level of Propofol found in Jackson was equivalent to what is found in "general anesthesia for major surgery."

So what is Conrad Murray not saying?

Bad Doc

A small, empty, 20 ml bottle of Propofol was found in the bedroom, but a secret compartment in a nearby closet contained numerous bottles of Propofol as well.

Along them? A large, empty, 100ml bottle with a large tear in the rubber stopper. A tear in the stopper is made to connect an entire bottle of Propofol to the IV.

If this is done, the doctor must use an infusion pump to regulate the flow of Propofol, or else the patient could easily OD. There was no infusion pump found.

Law enforcement sources believe Dr. Murray may have used the 100 ml bottle, then either tried regulating the flow by eyeballing it or letting it flow by itself.

Either way, that would be reckless, as Dr. Murray himself said he left to go to the bathroom at one point (see related Michael Jackson death timeline dispute).

If Dr. Murray did indeed empty the full 100 ml bottle into Jackson's system, that would be 40 times more Propofol than the physician said he administered.

No word if the prosecution plans to argue this in Dr. Murray's involuntary manslaughter case. The doctor has been charged, pending a preliminary hearing.

Celebrating the Jewish holiday of Purim at Manhattan hotspot Solo Saturday, Jersey Shore stars Snooki and Vinny emerged unscathed after the atrium shattered.

Amazingly, it was not because Ronnie Magro threw some dude through the plate glass. The thing just plain collapsed. These things just happen sometimes, right?

"Its okay Vin and I are still alive. Omg roof just collapsed at the purim event!," Nicole Polizzi tweeted. "We thought the dj was beatin the beat hardcore but nope."

"The roof just couldn't handle snooki and vin."

Definitely not.

Snooki and Vinny

Vinny Guadagnino and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi are okay. Exhale.

Summing it up, Snooki wrote: "The roof may have fallen and no 1 got hurt, but the party still goes on! I'm glad everyone's ok. Thank you to the owners of Solo Restaurant for taking care of everybody and letting us keep the Purim Party poppin!"

Well said, Snooks.

Vinny Guadagnino, on the other hand, had a different take on it: "Roof just collapsed at Purim event.... I think me and @sn00ki felt the wrath for not being Jewish."

Luckily, only a few peeps suffered minor injuries, while the majority - Sex and the City's Chris Noth among them - fist pumped late into the night after the incident.

Brittany Murphy had a lot of drugs in her system when she died in December. Her death has been ruled an accident, but several questions about it linger.

The actress obtained a prescription for 120 hydrocodone (Vicodin) pills 11 days before her death, but on the day she died, there were only 11 pills left.

Suspicious, no? Moreover, the L.A. County Coroner's Office cannot locate the doctor who prescribed the pills and are currently on the hunt to find him.

According to the Coroner's report, the medication prescribed specifically to the fallen star were supposed to be taken a maximum of four times a day.

But since 109 of the pills were missing from the bottle when she died, only 44 should have been gone if Brittany had maxed out on the prescription.

Brittany's husband, Simon Monjack, says he is vindicated by the accidental death findings, but officials want to know why so many pills were prescribed at all.

A member of the Coroner's Office recently went to Simon Monjack to assist them in locating the doctor who prescribed the meds, but he was not any help.

Why are we not surprised in the least?

The cause of Murphy's death is listed as "accidental" - the result of pneumonia, prescription and over-the-counter drugs - but is still far from a closed case.

Will the missing doctor be found? And if so, will he ultimately face legal action like the enablers/doctors who treated Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson?

No, Rozlyn Papa did not bang Tiger Woods. But she is reportedly looking to cash in on a sex-related scandal by scoring a reporting gig, a la Rachel Uchitel.

Tiger's #1 mistress recently signed on as a correspondent for Extra. While that says a lot about Extra, it's hard to blame a gal for trying to get a good job.

Brad Slow Dances

Now it appears Rozlyn may be following her lead.

After being banished from The Bachelor for allegedly sleeping with a producer, the hot model mom became embroiled in an even bigger scandal last week.

Amid reports that a Rozlyn Papa sex tape is being shopped around to adult film companies, the 28-year-old model came in for an audition at E! Tuesday.

Is Bachelor outcast Rozlyn Papa looking to get into showbiz?

Bachelor antics aside, Roz certainly has a face for TV, and knows her way around scandal. Her adversary Chris Harrison thinks he knows what she's up to.

"I'm not sure what her endgame is, but she might be looking for publicity," opined the Bachelor host-pimp and Rozlyn's Women Tell All punching bag.

Rozlyn denies any wrongdoing on The Bachelor despite Harrison and some former housemates contending she was more than "friends" with a producer.

Ryan Callahan was also fired for his role in the alleged controversy, which Papa has suggested was drummed up to force her off the show for other reasons.

Who do you believe in the Rozlyn scandal?

The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney became the first couple in the 13-season history of the show to get actually married Saturday in California.

If you want to get technical, though, no Bachelor star has wed his final rose recipient, as Jason dumped his, Melissa Rycroft, for runner-up Molly after the fact.

Somehow we don't suspect Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi (who The Bachelor spoilers suggest he picks over Tenley Molzahn) to be the first. But moving on.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney made if official in front of an estimated 300 guests at the majestic Terranea Resort on the coast of Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

The nuptials, which will be televised on the two-hour March 8 ABC special The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding, were also marked by a driving rainstorm.

Rain on your wedding day. How ironic ... or the result of an 8.8-magnitude earthquake hitting Chile earlier that day and causing a near tsunami in California.

Still, not even that could dampen the day for these two ...

Hugs All Around

SOAKED BUT PSYCHED: Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney tie the knot!

“We’re really excited for them,” said Jillian Harris former Bachelorette star, who vied for Mesnick’s heart on The Bachelor, and attended the nuptials with fiance Ed Swiderski.

“They are very ‘normal’ in one sense, but both of us have been through things in terms of the tabloids and drama after our shows were over,” adds Jillian.

Trista and Ryan Sutter (the only pair from The Bachelorette to wed thus far), DeAnna Pappas, Jesse Csinsak and Kiptyn Locke were also among the guests.

They watched Molly Malaney, bedecked in a $45,000, strapless Monique Lhuillier gown and Neil Lane jewelry walk down a 200-ft. aisle to “Over the Rainbow.”

Sung by American Idol stoner alum Jason Castro, natch.

The ceremony lasted 15 minutes - and concluded with the release of white doves into the rainy skies, as Jason Mesnick tried to shield her from the rain.

Chris Harrison served as the officiant. Kidding ... probably.

Following the romantic, momentous ceremony, the couple's guests enjoyed cocktails before a reception ... thankfully in an indoor ballroom at the resort.

Congratulations to the happy couple, who we wish nothing but the best. Click to enlarge some photos from Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney's wedding ...

The April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, upon which she graces the cover, features music superstar Lady Gaga recounting an old boyfriend who doubted her.

One she's not opposed to rubbing her success in the face of now.

Singing in the Rain

"I had a boyfriend who told me I'd never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I'd fail," the singer recounts.

Gaga adds, "I said to him, 'Someday, when we're not together, you won't be able to order a cup of coffee at the f**king deli without hearing or seeing me.'"

Some might call that quote arrogant, but it's hard to blame her for relishing that just a bit, given how hard she worked to succeed, and then stay at the top.

Someone dared to doubt this.

She also says she "ate sh*t for so long" trying to make it in music and "I've always been delusionally ambitious to the point where people don't understand me."

Hopefully Matthew Williams, her current beau, is not one of those people. He's worked with her for so long, we imagine they click professionally and personally.

Also notable is the conventional lingerie she wears on the Cosmo cover.

After all, we're talking about a girl with wacky, avant garde style, who wears hair phones, masks, bulges in her pants and ... whatever that is in the pic above.

Lady Gaga can certainly pull of a variety of bizarre and regular style choices. We expect her to show similarly versatility and longevity in the world of music, too.

Jersey Shore star J-Woww (Jenni Farley) was known for her risque fashion selections on the first season of MTV's breakout hit show. To her chagrin.

She wishes she could have a few fashion do-overs when it comes to her style. Asked to pick her biggest fashion regret, she couldn't even pick one.

"Oh! Everything on the show," J-Woww told MTV News. "I was really sick during the shooting of it. I ended up going to the doctors and the hospital."

"So, like, everything!"

Even the relatively conservative outfit seen here ...

While she still has Season 2 to think up some better looks, she knows the one thing she will always include in any one of her outfits: "Earrings!"

We suppose that even if you see J-Woww nude, she will be wearing those: "I have chubby ears, so I gotta wear my earrings, no matter what."

J-Woww should start packing up all hers, since the Jersey Shore cast is hitting the road for and getting ready to take South Beach in Season 2.

"[Expect] more hookups," J-Woww said. "More drama - a lot more. I don't know [what the drama will be about]. We haven't really changed, but we have."

Of the Jersey Shore cast, she adds: "We're a bigger family, which I love. So, when we're all together, we know each other, so there is no [holding back]."
