You may have heard the inevitable news that Marilyn Manson and his girlfriend honey Evan Rachel Wood just got engaged earlier this week. Well, that was right!

Kind of.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

The 41-year-old shock-rocker and 22-year-old True Blood actress are indeed betrothed. But the couple didn't get engaged at a Paris concert on Monday.

Instead, they got engaged at his Paris concert on December 21!

MADE FOR EACH OTHER: Marilyn and Evan are getting married!

The self-proclaimed Antichrist Superstar (real name Brian Warner) bought a ring and rose for the occasion and canoodled backstage with the actress afterward.

Manson's first marriage, to Dita Von Teese, went up in flame back in 2007 after he hooked up with Wood, who starred in his video for "Heart-Shaped Glasses."

He and Wood hooked up right around the time he stopped seeing Dita. They broke up in 2008 only to reconcile last April. Now they're together ... forever!

Congratulations?

Michael Jackson loved collaborating with other artists. But there is one rumored hermaphrodite he never had a chance to work with but wanted to: Lady Gaga.

Jackson wanted to invite the "Paparazzi" singer to join him on stage during his This Is It tour, his former choreographer Travis Payne told said yesterday.

Ace of Fashion

Payne suggested Janet, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Mariah Carey, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Celine Dion, Sting, Seal, Bono, and Tina Turner join the tour.

MJ was pleased with the list, but when Payne asked if there was anyone else he wanted to work with, Jackson named one of 2009's breakthrough artists.

"[Michael] literally told me, 'You got to get into her,'" Payne said. "'She's good.'"

Michael Jackson wanted Lady Gaga to join him on tour.

Jackson's admiration for Lady Gaga got Payne interested. "I started listening to her music more and looking at her performances, and I was like, 'You're right.'"

Ironically, in November, Payne received a call from Lady Gaga. He initially thought getting the call was strange, but thought of his conversation with Jackson.

"I told her the story," Payne said. "Of course she was moved by it."

Payne ended up directing and choreographing Lady Gaga at the American Music Awards, as well as her sets on Ellen, The Jay Leno Show, and X-Factor.

Jackson and Lady G both made the top five in 2009 album sales.

Christina Aguilera's eyes look downright mesmerizing on the February 2010 issue of Marie Claire. The pop star claims she's mellowed a bit since her early years.

“In this crazy business, it’s so easy to build up a lot of walls and a lot of bitterness. And that's just no way to live," the four-time Grammy Award winner said.

“[I can now use softer tones] I’ve been afraid to in the past, allow myself to go to a place of ‘less singing.’ I’m more vulnerable and strong at the same time.”

Marie Claire Cover Girl

Christina Aguilera is turning over a new leaf musically.

The 29-year-old mom says her son Max also inspires her to be lighter in her music, despite the fact that “I had a really hard time being light before."

"I’d get a little weird about it being too cliché. My first record was very clichéd pop - what everyone else wanted. [My second album Stripped] inspired by a lot of pain. [My third, Back to Basics,] still had some sort of relation to my past."

"[My new album] is just about the future, having my son in my life, motivating me to want to play and have fun.” Sounds like a great combo to us.

X-tina’s new album is called Bionic, and it's due out in March. We can't wait. Click to enlarge more Christina Aguilera pictures from the magazine ...

Jersey Shore just premiered like a month ago, but what we're hearing is that the cast of MTV's new hit will be back for another summer in Seaside Heights.

Vinny Guadagnino let it slip this week that he and the fist-pumping, beer-guzzling Italian-Americans we've come to laugh at with will be back next summer.

"They want us to do another season," he said at a Youth in Revolt after-party at La Pomme. Really, who can blame the network for wanting to run it back?

The self-proclaimed guidos have gained instant celeb status, becoming staples on TV, celebrity gossip sites and at various nightlife events around the U.S.

So which venues meet the criteria? Those that can cough up cash!

Jersey Shore Cast Picture

Jersey Shore is a virtual lock for a second season.

Getting the entire Jersey Shore cast to an event can cost $30,000, and it's not like that's an asking price that no one's biting at - these tools are everywhere.

Individually, they aren't any cheaper. Fist-pumping with Mike (The Situation) and DJ Pauly D costs $7,500 per tough guy. Vinny, meanwhile, gets $3,500.

Those interested in getting to know lovebirds Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola can take advantage of a special package deal: A modest $3,000! A steal!

As for the shore's resident drama queen, an event featuring the annoying Oompa Loompa Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi goes for as much as $7,500.

Fire and brimstone not included.

Surveillance cameras may have caught the Christmas Eve standoff in which basketball star Gilbert Arenas pulled a gun on his teammate, Javaris Crittenton.

The Washington Wizards have told District of Columbia police that they have locker room surveillance video but are having trouble downloading the footage.

Computer technicians are assisting the organization with the matter today.

If you think the video problems are a ruse so the Wizards can protect their star, think again. A source says the team is almost "over cooperative" with cops.

A TMZ source says it's "almost as if they want Arenas to go down," and "there is a better than 50/50 chance the U.S. Attorney will issue a felony warrant."

The NBA has suspended Arenas indefinitely.

AGENT ZERO BRAIN CELLS: What the heck was Gilbert Arenas thinking?

He has no license for the guns, and if he is charged with a felony, the Wizards could cite the morals clause in Arenas' $111 million contract and void it.

As for what caused the standoff, a law enforcement says it was all over a card game known as Bourré. Arenas allegedly owed Crittenton some money.

Crittenton apparently threatened Arenas to make good on his debt. Two days later, Arenas laid out his guns as a prank, telling him to collect the debt.

Instead of diffusing the tension, Crittenton became enraged and both NBA players ended up drawing on each other ... in the locker room. Astounding.

Stephanie Pratt, annoying sidekick on The Hills and sister of Spencer Pratt, reached a plea deal with Los Angeles prosecutors in her DUI case Thursday.

The 23-year-old was sentenced to three years' probation, completion of a 12-week alcohol education program, as well as three AA meetings a week.

She must also pay a fine in addition to the above stipulations.

Once she does, Stephanie Pratt's DUI charge will be dropped in exchange for her no contest plea to one count of misdemeanor "exhibition of speed."

On the issue of whether Steph attended rehab, as was reported, "Ms. Pratt voluntarily sought help from a doctor regarding substance issues but the doctor recommended that she didn't need rehab," Pratt's lawyer Jon Bryant Artz said.

Pratt called the October 18 arrest after Holly Montag's birthday party, "the worst thing to happen to me and, at the same time, the biggest blessing."

More importantly: Would you hit it?

Fresh off a much-publicized apartment ransacking by Hailey Glassman, Jon Gosselin is back to doing what he does best - chasing skirts - once again.

According to reports, the officially divorced King of the D-bags already has a secret new girlfriend - a 25-year-old cutie known only as Morgan.

"Jon met Morgan over Thanksgiving while snowboarding in Utah. They've been inseparable," said a source. "They talk and text throughout the day."

"Morgan flew to New York right after Christmas to be with him. Jon is so into Morgan that he is thinking about moving to Utah to be closer to her."

Still, Jon, who's at odds with ex Hailey, and whose split from Kate (who just debuted new hair extensions) was just finalized, is trying to take it slow.

Yeah, sure he is. Because that's just how he rolls ...

"Jon adores Morgan and is trying to keep her out of the spotlight while he tries to figure out his life," said the insider, talking out of his/her a$$.

Might Morgan have played a role, indirectly, in Hailey trashing Jon's apartment? According to a source, Morgan had flown to NYC to be with Jon.

But, after finding his place had been ransacked, "he immediately drove to Pennsylvania with Morgan, and they crashed at a hotel in Reading."

"Later, they went back so Jon could figure out the apartment situation. Morgan helped keep him calm, and he was thankful to have her there."

Morgan, an attractive brunette, is a ray of sunshine in the 32-year-old father of eight's otherwise messed up life, according to alleged friends.

"Jon is going through a really rough time," said the source close to him. "He and Morgan are becoming very close, but he's being really cautious."

We thought the book was closed on Richard Heene. We should be so lucky.

Sadly, none other than Balloon Boy's dad is back in our faces again, denying in an interview with Larry King that his infamous hoax was a hoax at all.

What an ass clown.

In the interview with Larry King set to air Friday, Richard Heene insisted that he truly believed son Falcon was inside the runaway homemade craft.

In other words, the Balloon Boy hoax was not a hoax. Yeah, right.

"We had searched high and low," Heene said, pretending to get all choked up. "I knew he was in the craft. In my mind, there was no other place."

Richard Heene begins a 90-day jail sentence Monday.

So why, if he's so virtuous, would Heene plead guilty to felony charges and accept jail time for the stunt? Well, because it's all his wife's damn fault!

Richard said he copped a plea protect wife Mayumi Heene, who would have faced deportation back to Japan if she had been convicted of a felony.

Instead, as part of the plea agreement, the Balloon Mom ended up pleading guilty to misdemeanor - making a false report - and got 20 days in jail.

"I'm not disputing the fact that I did have to plead guilty, and when I say I have to, I had to do it to save my family and save my wife," Richard said.

If he were innocent, no one would be convicted of anything, of course. Details.

Unfortunately for this waste of oxygen, his "revelation" comes just days before he's due to report to jail, meaning no more interviews. How tragic.

Follow the jump for a clip of Heene lying through his teeth and attempting to milk a 16th minute of fame on Larry King Live if you can stomach it:

Drunk former NBA star Jayson Williams drove across four lanes of oncoming traffic before smashing his Mercedes into a tree after hitting the bars this week.

This according to a witness whose testimony is being used in court against the ex-Net, who was already facing a retrial of a 2002 manslaughter charge.

Guess you can tack a DUI onto his court docket.

Police are accusing Jayson Williams of two counts of drunk driving for his Tuesday morning car crash, which left him in the hospital with a fractured neck.

Williams will be arraigned from bed later today.

The unnamed witness told cops he or she saw Williams get into his black 2007 Mercedes and operate his large SUV "in an unsteady and abrupt manner."

Moreover, "the vehicle crossed four lanes of oncoming traffic and crashed into a tree on the sidewalk." Tiger Woods and a few others can probably relate.

The officer who first responded to the crash saw Williams "bleeding from his face and the that [Williams] had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath."

While he was found in the passenger seat and allegedly said he wasn't driving, witnesses say he was the only one in the car and definitely was driving.

Between this and the suspension of Gilbert Arenas for packing heat in the locker room, the NBA has had better weeks as far as PR goes.

Loredana Jolie, one of Tiger Woods' many mistresses, is supposedly writing a tell-all book about his wild sexual encounters. With her, and with other dudes.

The woman, who also goes by Loredana Jolie Ferriolo, claims she witnessed Tiger in gay encounters and that he "had sexual relationships with other men."

The shocking twist is something none of Tiger Woods' women have claimed so far, and there has been no evidence to suggest it's true. Still, scandalous!

According to reports, Loredana Jolie recently attempted to sell her story for $1 million and described group sex that included incidents of Tiger with men.

That sure would cast the "King of Swing" in a new light ...

Loredana Jolie claims Tiger Woods also had sex with men.

Loredana says she plans to spill about how she and Tiger "came about, his healthy appetite for arranged sex, threesomes, girls next door and girl-on-girl."

Awesome. She also promises to "answer rumors surrounding Woods' sexuality." We didn't realize there were any. Guy bangs waitresses, end of discussion.

We imagine the gay sex angle is part of Loredana's quest to score a huge publishing deal, how unlikely it seems. Not that he has much credibility either.

Loredana has kept a low profile since being named as a Tiger mistress but "is in talks with a number of publishing companies," according to reports.

The gorgeous blonde from Sicily, has told people she was "one of Tiger's favorite mistresses." She was a Playboy model and a rumored prostitute. Hot!

Quite the day for Tiger Woods gossip. Earlier, a woman named Susie Ogren told the Enquirer she saw Tiger doing ecstasy, but he didn't bed her, amazingly.
