Everyone on The Bachelor hates Vienna Girardi.

We're starting to understand the reason (or two reasons) why the only one who's opinion matters, star Jake Pavelka, has taken a liking to her, however.

ABC's official "bio" for Vienna Girardi, who has quickly become the enemy of every other girl left on the series, lists her as a "marketing representative."

Looks like they conveniently left out some of her free-time pursuits ...

Vienna Girardi sure can strategically wear a scarf, and clean up nice.

The above pic, unearthed by some site called Hollywood Life, is from a pinup calendar sent to over 2,500 clients and friends of C.O.D. Trees, Inc. of Oviedo, Fla., in 2009.

We have no idea what any of that means. What we do know is that it will surely fuel the fire for V's haters (as if rumors of her dating someone else weren't enough).

One wonders how Jake will feel when he finds out about this.

The Bachelor spoilers we've read project Vienna as one of the final girls standing. If that's true, we can see this (topless!) bomb being dropped on Jake soon enough.

You know Mike Fleiss is salivating over this ... possibly in more ways than one.

Heidi Montag, who has been widely criticized for her recent plastic surgery binge, says she plans on getting mom Darlene some of her own this Mother's Day.

While reports surfaced that Heidi's mom, Darlene Egelhoff, was horrified at her daughter, Heidi now says Darlene not only knew about it, but supported her.

Plastic Princess

"I've had this conversation with her several times. So I think she knew," the 23-year-old plastic cyborg princess says. "I already heard what she had to say."

Montag says the only thing she didn't tell her mom was the date of her plastic surgery, as "I didn't want it to be a circus. I didn't want it to be crazy media."

Heidi says Darlene "was excited and she's asking ... for her surgery next ... For Mother's Day, I have to ask Dr. Frank Ryan if he'll do a mommy makeover."

SURGERY GONE WRONG: For once, a supermarket tabloid headline speaks truth.

Should we actually believe any of this? Probably not.

It seems The Hills story editors can't figure out the most dramatic contrived story line, because conflicting reports say her family was very much in the dark.

In fact, People reports that Heidi Montag is heading home to Crested Butte, Colo., to confront her mom and “the new me,” with camera crews in lock step.

And camera crews for her MTV show are recording it all.

Montag, still in bandages she has to wear for portions of the day while her recovery continues, boarded a private jet bound for Colorado early Wednesday.

We can't imagine Darlene was actually supportive of her 23-year-old's decision to dismantle her natural face, or that she'll react well to Heidi 3.0 in person.

What do you think? When did Heidi look best?

Mark Kerrigan, brother of former figure skating champion Nancy Kerrigan, allegedly assaulted their father and thus caused the heart attack that killed him this week.

Now the Olympic medalist's sibling won't be allowed to attend the funeral, the Boston Herald reports, per the Massachusetts department of correction guidelines.

Daniel Kerrigan will be laid to rest today.

In the meantime, Mark Kerrigan, 45, who is clearly a very troubled individual, has been transferred to Bridgewater State Hospital for a competency evaluation.

This isn't Mark Kerrigan's first brush with the law - or violence.

During Mark's 2007 divorce from now-ex-wife Janet Guarino, the judgment wasn't exactly glowing. They divorced on the grounds of cruel and abusive treatment.

According to the Herald, Guarino took out multiple restraining orders against Mark Kerrigan, both when they were married and while they were still dating.

Se told authorities he "punched her, slashed her tires, threatened her with a bow and arrow, trashed her personal property and sent ex-cons to visit her."

Makes Tonya Harding seem downright angelic.

Rumors on the Internets suggest that Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are secretly engaged. Anyone believe that gossip? Anyone hear of Swizz Beatz before?

Well, he's dating Alicia Keys, and the singer apparently had a lot to smile about on her 29th birthday January 25 when he got her an engagement ring.

That's what the rumor is, anyway.

Swizz Beatz, a 31-year-old producer who is still married to (and currently divorcing) his wife Mashonda, supposedly proposed with a 7-carat sparkler.

Either he or the made-up source has good taste!

Are Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz getting married?

The happy couple were photographed strolling on a Hawaii beach the day of the alleged proposal, January 24. Keys' rep denies she is engaged, but ...

Another friend of Alicia's reveals to Us that the couple is "currently in Hawaii celebrating the engagement and her birthday. She feels blessed."

Adds the pal: "She is so thrilled. She is with the man who has inspired so much of her music and her new album [The Element of Freedom]."

Engaged nor not, Swizz Beatz is equally smitten with Keys. "What we have is so precious," he gushed to the New York Daily News last year.

Congratulations, possibly!

Two-time presidential candidate John Edwards has confirmed that he and wife Elizabeth Edwards are separated, but that he still cares deeply about her.

"It is an extraordinarily sad moment, but I love my children more than anything and still care deeply about Elizabeth," Edwards said in a statement.

A friend of Elizabeth Edwards also confirmed Wednesday that the couple is separated. Elizabeth's sister, Nancy Anania, said that she remains strong.

"She said, 'I've had it. I can't do this. I want my life back,'" Anania said. "I'm really proud of her. Somehow, she's doing as well as you could expect."

The statements from John and Elizabeth Edwards come ...

  • As a former Edwards aide, Andrew Young, is preparing to release a tell-all book, The Politician, that gives an unflattering portrait of him.
  • One week after John Edwards finally made a public declaration that he fathered a child, now almost two, with his mistress Rielle Hunter.
  • As Elizabeth continues her battle with incurable cancer, which she has had since early 2007, about when John was knocking up Rielle.
  • As a federal investigation into his campaign finances, from which he is accused of funneling Hunter hush money, is ramping up.

Yup, it's pretty hard to see how you'd come back from that.

Young initially claimed that he fathered the child with John Edwards' mistress in the weeks leading up to the crucial presidential primaries in 2008.

John Edwards publicly declared only last week that he is the father of the child with Rielle Hunter, who worked as a videographer for his campaign.

Young says Edwards tried to hide the affair, begging his "crazy slut" mistress to get an abortion and then wanting to have a fake DNA test done.

Hayden Panettiere recently ditched her blonde 'do to become a redhead simply "Because I could! I was tired of being a blonde and being... you get stuck in one thing and known for one thing and as a cheerleader or whatever that image."

"It's fun to change things up, and now I feel I don't have to overcompensate as much personality-wise when I have red hair as I do with blonde hair."

"I'm typically a very fiery person anyway," adds the 21-year-old actress, and surely Wladimir Klitschko can attest to that, if you know what we mean!

Was it a good move by the Heroes cast member? Vote below!

What do you think of Hayden Panettiere's red hair?

Britney Spears had some errands to run yesterday afternoon in Calabasas, Calif. For Britney, errands mean getting Starbucks fix before heading over to the salon.

Of course, this being Britney, she managed once again to set off rumors that she is engaged to Jason Trawick, wearing a big ol' diamond on her left ring finger ...

  • 'Bucks Run
  • Britney Spears' New Ring

Britney was in good spirits despite the rain. It was also cold. [Photos: Fame]

What do you think? Did Jason Trawick put a ring on it? Or is that just one of many from Britney's vast collection? We'd put our money on the latter, sadly.

Perhaps one day, Jason will become the third Mr. Britney Spears, but the two have weathered some cheating rumors (not just engagement rumors) lately.

Better to take it slow for the time being.

A man with the nickname of Agent Zero deserves a good mug shot, don't you think? Gilbert Arenas was formally booked on a felony gun charge Tuesday.

The Washington Wizards star pleaded guilty January 15 to one count of carrying a pistol without a license - a felony - and will likely avoid any jail time.

He remains on indefinite suspension, however, and may be at risk of having his $111 million contract with the NBA team voided due to his conviction.

The charges against Arenas stemmed from a locker room standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton late last year after a prank went horribly awry.

Here's Arenas' mug shot, which TMZ obtained (and a bonus Gilbert Arenas mug shot we found via an image search and added for good measure) ...

Gilbert Arenas will be sentenced March 26.

Meanwhile, NBA Commissioner Daniel Stern announced today that the two players have been suspended for the remainder of the season without pay.

Stern released a statement claiming "The issue here is not about the legal ownership and possession of guns, either in one's home or elsewhere. It is about possession of guns in the NBA workplace, which will not be tolerated."

"It is not disputed that ... both Mr. Arenas and Mr. Crittenton brought guns to the locker room and displayed them to one another in a continuation of a dispute."

Stern claims both players have expressed remorse, and added that both of the men "have volunteered to engage in community service in order to turn the lessons they have learned into an educational message for others."

Cameron Douglas pleaded guilty in Manhattan federal court to selling massive amounts of crystal meth and cocaine. That is not a small-time charge.

He faces a minimum of 10 years in prison.

The clearly troubled 30-year-old was busted back in July 2009 at the swanky Hotel Gansevoort with a load of crystal meth and more than $10,000 in cash.

He was arrested after allegedly mailing 215 grams of methamphetamine to a post office box in a package sent, unknowingly, to a government informant.

Cameron Douglas' mug shot from last year.

He was tossed in the slammer after, police say, his girlfriend, Kelly Sott, tried to smuggle the dude heroin concealed in an electric toothbrush in August.

Douglas, the son of actor Michael Douglas and grandson of actor Kirk Douglas, was previously arrested in New York in 1999 for buying drugs.

He was also arrested in 2007 on cocaine possession charges.

Needless to say he won't be dealing again anytime soon.
