Boise State defeated Oregon, 19-8, to begin an exciting season of college football last night, but a punch thrown after the whistle is drawing all the attention.

Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount decided to go Chris Brown on a Boise State player after the game at Bronco Stadium. Dude had to be restrained.

Blount later apologized for the punch thrown at Byron Hout, who was creamed in the jaw as players flooded the field (most of them just to shake hands).

The Oregon attacker also went after some Broncos fans, and his actions were caught by ESPN and replayed countless times for the national TV audience.

Watch the Oregon-Boise State fight right now and gasp in amazement:

The annoying Stephanie Pratt donned a bikini as she taped a pre-Labor Day episode of The Hills with new cast member Kristin Cavallari in Malibu, Calif.

The 23-year-old sister of Spencer Pratt sure has whipped herself into shape, as the reality TV beauty didn't look nearly this svelte a few months ago:

With Indian summer in full swing, that means plenty more Stephanie Pratt on the beach in her two-piece, playing a big role in Season 5 of The Hills.

Which is great ... except it's Stephanie Pratt.

Sure, she's a cute girl. But she kind of looks like Spencer, which is kind of a turn-off, and she's also all sorts of painful. The burning question:

Would you hit it?

Actor Shia LaBeouf's new leading lady – both on and off screen - is rumored to be Carey Mulligan, 24, a redhead who hails from the great nation of England.

Carey was seen cuddling and kissing the Transformers star in NYC, where the two have been filming Oliver Stone's Wall Street sequel, Money Never Sleeps.

"They seemed very, very happy," says an onlooker of the pair, who were seen dining together. "They were talking, laughing, smiling and seemed very close."

Is Carey Mulligan dating Shia LaBeouf? Does anyone care? "We don't know for sure" is the answer to both questions, but she seems nice looking, don't you think?

As her big break, Mulligan landed the role of Kitty Bennet in Pride & Prejudice alongside star Keira Knightley with the help of her school headmistress.

She credits Keira Knightley as her acting coach: "I was a real tomboy until was 15 – I didn't have my first kiss until a month away from 16," she said.

We're guessing she has plenty coming her way now.

A day after Adam Goldstein, a.k.a. DJ AM, was laid to rest, the celebrity spinster was remembered last night by former fiancée Nicole Richie and friends such as Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson, Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, and more.

They were among hundreds of invited guests and a handful of fans who attended the memorial at the Hollywood Palladium, not far from the nightclubs where DJ AM made his name and gained his fame at the turntables.

Also in attendance was his last girlfriend.

"He was my soulmate and now he is my soul," model Haley Wood, who dated Goldstein up until his death, told the crowd during the 2 1/2-hour memorial service.

"He is my amazing grace."

Adam Goldstein (DJ AM) was found dead August 28 at age 36.

The cause of death hasn’t been determined, but law enforcement sources say that the star, who had battled addiction, had OxyContin pills in his body and left evidence he was smoking crack in a one-time relapse that proved fatal.

Authorities are unclear on whether his death was a suicide or an accidental overdose, but it looks highly possible that AM wanted to take his life.

It was a sad day in Hollywood, with Michael Jackson's funeral also taking place. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of MJ - and DJ AM.

In a move generating more discussion than Michelle Obama's hair, on September 8 President Barack Obama will deliver a "historic" speech, in what the Department of Education describes as a direct address to students across the U.S.

Obama's speech to school children will air live on the White House website.

Some say this is a new and different approach to emphasizing the importance of education. Other parents and conservatives are calling it brainwashing.

In an interview last month, the president said "I'm going to be making a big speech to young people all across the country about the importance of education."

"About the importance of staying in school; how we want to improve our education system and why it’s important for the country. So I hope everybody tunes in."

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan sent a letter to the nation's principals, inviting schools to watch the speech and included suggested classroom activities.

The President

Jim Greer, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, was among those to criticize the idea, saying it "does not allow for debate on the President's agenda."

"Rather, it obligates the youngest children in our school system to agree with our President's initiatives or be ostracized by their teachers and classmates."

Katie Gordon, a spokeswoman for the Florida Republican Party, who said the party's "beef" is with the accompanying lesson plans, which suggest topics, questions and "guided discussion" to follow President Obama's speech to children.

The Cato Institute, a public-policy research foundation, issued a press release entitled "Hey Obama, Leave Those Kids Alone," criticizing his "buzzwords."

We're sure Jon Voight has some good things to say about it as well.

Overall, reaction covers the spectrum, from critical to supportive. What do you think of President Obama's planned address to children?

We know you're the queen of Twitter, Demi Moore, but everyone knows the worst thing you can do is start a feud with Perez Hilton. The low-life always wins, even by being a loser. He has no purpose, other than garnering attention.

Just the same, Moore decided to ignite a Twitter fight with Perez for three-week-old tweets like: "Tallulah Willis, 15, dressing like a slut! Look at her boobs!"

Tallulah, of course, is Demi's daughter with Bruce Willis.

While anyone can and should be pissed that this moron is talking trash about their daughter, it's best not to engage Perez. Ever. But Demi did, Tweeting:

"Clearly Perez Hilton isn't taking violating child pornography laws very seriously. He might not but there are alot of people who do! Anyone who advertises follows or supports Perez supports violating child pornography laws!"

Tallulah Willis is pictured below with her mom Demi Moore. Click here for the Tallulah picture in question, which Perez's original remark was based on.

Yes, she's 15, and calling her a slut is inappropriate, but come on, this is nothing we haven't seen from teenagers countless times ... usually Miley Cyrus.

Predictably, as soon as Moore fired that off, Perez took a well-earned break from drawing semen on celebrity pics and started Twittering like a madman:

  • "Expect another letter from my attorney, kitten. Xoxo"
  • "P.S. Bring it on, bitch!"
  • "That fine, upstanding, wholesome young lady is 15. Still waiting for you to retract your incorrect, libelous and defamatory statements"
  • "And thanks for drawing MORE attention to your daughter's behavior and your parenting skills (or lack thereof). U r real smart!"

Wonderful and highly intelligent stuff, as always. Demi responded with "This is not a game. Children should not be exploited. They must be protected."

Perez Hilton hit back at that one with: "Ur daughter has been an actress in Bruce's films. You 2 have been exploiting Tallulah for quite some time."

In closing, Demi Moore is an idiot. We totally get why you'd want to beat the crap out of him, a la will.i.am, but way to call attention to Tallulah photos no one was talking about, and call out Perez in a forum where everyone can see it.

Whose side are you on?

Here it is, the moment you've all been waiting for: Hilary Duff joins the cast of Gossip Girl! She looks kinda like ... Hilary Duff, only on Gossip Girl.

Duff's character, Olivia, is a movie star trying to live the typical college life. Assigned to be Vanessa's (Jessica Szohr) roommate at NYU - their dorm room is the setting of the photo below - Olivia gets to know Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley).

Lauren Conrad, Hilary Duff

Olivia becomes attracted to Dan, and vica versa. Of course, there's a twist: Dan is so tuned out to pop culture that he doesn't realize the girl he's falling for is a huge star famous for her role in a Twilight-esque series of vampire movies.

So that's like Dan not knowing who Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are. Come to think of it, that sounds kind of like Dan. It just might work.

Here's Hilary Duff entering her dorm room at NYU ...

Jealousy was the most obvious motive for Ryan Jenkins' likely slaying of Jasmine Fiore last month, but police are still trying to figure out the details.

Specifically, what would cause Jenkins, who went on to kill himself, to fly into such rage that he'd brutally murder Jasmine Fiore, his Playboy model wife?

Well, just four days before she was killed, Jasmine shared a romantic moment on a California beach with a man who wasn't her husband, Michael Cardosi.

Cardosi is Jasmine's ex-husband, and who had been in prison for the last three years. The photos were taken the day he was let out of prison, August 11.

In pictures, the two can be seen hugging, smiling, touching and even sharing a kiss. Jasmine Fiore is not wearing her wedding ring in any of the photos.

Cardosi's mother, Winnie, says they were ecstatic to see each other during the two-day reunion, and Jasmine kept in touch with him during his time in prison.

Cops believe Jasmine was killed by Ryan Jenkins Friday, August 14. Cardosi was sent back to prison Sunday, August 16 for violating the terms of his probation.

It is not known if Jenkins knew about the reunion or if that is what set him off on a murderous rampage. There is also the theory that Fiore's text messages to Robert Hasman, a former fiance and friend, played a role in Jenkins' jealousy.

Jenkins is believed to have seen - and responded to - one of the last texts Hasman sent to Fiore on her phone. He wrote simply "suck it" that night she died.

On a hot Southern California night, close friends joined parents, brothers and sisters and three children to say goodbye to the late Michael Jackson.

They came for an intimate funeral ceremony for a star laid to rest.

Michael Jackson Entertainment Weekly Cover (III)

Lisa Marie Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, Macaulay Culkin, Chris Tucker, Mila Kunis and others arrived at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif., Thursday.

As Jackson’s backup dancers served as ushers, his brothers, wearing black armbands and a sequined glove on one hand, carried his flower-covered casket.

The private, intimate gathering was a stark contrast to the internationally telecast and star-studded memorial service at Los Angeles’ Staples Center July 7.

Jackson’s three children, Paris (with new haircut), Prince and Blanket, placed a crown on their father’s coffin to forever mark his place as the King of Pop.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009).

Michael's brother said that Michael's three children each wrote letters to their father that will lie with him alongside one of his signature white gloves.

After a prayer by Pastor Lucius Smith and a gospel sung by Gladys Knight, Clifton Davis performed the Jackson 5 song he wrote, “Never Can Say Goodbye.”

After the ceremony, the brothers carried the casket to the Grand Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Mortuary, where at 9:43 p.m. MJ entered his final resting place.

Unless you believe Michael Jackson is alive, that is.

Afterwards, his family issued this statement:

"Once again we thank all of Michael Jackson’s fans around the world for their generous outpouring of support during this terribly difficult time. Their expressions of love for Michael and his music have sustained the Jackson Family."

Joe Francis is standing by his story about his brawl with Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole - and allegedly making sure the key witness is on the same page.

This according to a text from Joe to Abbey obtained by TMZ.

The Hottest Couple Ever?

The text from Francis to Wilson, whose conversation triggered the nightclub melee in which Joe beat up Jayde (says she), was sent August 28 at 1:11 p.m.

The fight happened the previous night. Joe Francis wrote the text to make sure Wilson backs up his story that he didn't assault anyone and Brody's lying:

"Your statement is the truth. That jade [sic] threw a drink on me when I was talking to you and I reached around to tap on her shoulder to see who it was."

"Brody then grabed [sic] my shirt and ripped it partialy [sic] off. I curled up in a ball and covered my face. Joe never touched anyone!!! Most important!!!"

What a sleaze. Not that you would expect anything less.

Abbey Wilson used to date Joe Francis. Her self-esteem must be real high.

Francis' rep responded to the Abbey story as such:

"Abbey Wilson, Joe Francis' ex-girlfriend that he lived with for almost a year, has a little problem telling the whole truth ... Abbey conveniently omitted the last part of that text message which puts everything in context."

"The text reads: 'Also remember jade [sic] hit you the last time, don't lie for them.' Joe would never coach a witness but simply wanted Ms. Wilson to tell the truth about the incident and put aside her vendetta towards Joe."

Said vendetta against Joe Francis is apparently related to him breaking up with her and asking her to move out of his home. But no matter. The rep added:

"Joe is sick of this whole thing and just wishes his ex-girlfriend would just leave him alone, go back to Oklahoma and quit trying to make herself famous."

This "rep" is probably Joe himself. He can never resist getting in the last dig. Which is probably why he ended up getting his ass kicked by Brody Jenner.

Whose side are you on?
