Jake Pavelka's quest for a life partner continued last night, and The Hollywood Gossip staff endured The Bachelor to recap it for you with our exclusive point system.

Awarding and deducting scores as we deem fit, here's THG's take on last night's episode, which saw a very serious Jake narrow his field of contestants to five:

Chris Harrison announces that he will now be pimping the girls up and down the California coast. Bachelor road trip, RV style. Lots of screaming ensues. Minus 5.

The girls not in Vienna's RV start bashing her immediately. Plus 3.

First stop on the road trip? Wine country. Jake on the vineyard: "There are fields of grapes in all directions." One typically will see that in a vineyard, yes. Minus 4.

Tenley Screams

The first 15 minutes of the episode summed up in one image.

Gia and Jake spend their critical one-on-one date in the vineyard playing hide-and-seek and spin the bottle. Nauseating, but at least she's really trying. Plus 4.

Jake Pavelka confides that in 9th grade, his nickname was "Mr. Dateless." Minus 6, because there's no way Jake or any 9th grader has ever been called that.

Group date time. This mostly consists of Jake rolling around in the sand with a squeaky, flirty Tenley Molzahn. Doesn't look like the worst time ever. Plus 7.

Minus 2, though, for how he lamely says "it's time to get down n' dirty." Jake, stop reading the cue cards and acting like a stiff for five f*%king seconds.

Tenley Molzahn gets a rose. Ali is going to poison Vienna pretty soon. Plus 5.

The 2-on-1 date is going to be "so difficult" for Jake, but he's "going to do what my heart tells me." By his heart, he means Chris and Mike Fleiss. Minus 9.

Jake Sets Rose on Fire

Jake tries to act like this scene was totally spontaneous.

Jessie totally pulls a Jake Pavelka on Jake Pavelka, who is now in Jillian Harris' position. Jessie "warns" Jake about Vienna 'cause she cares SO MUCH! Plus 6.

Besides how much Vienna supposedly sucks, the big narrative producers are beating into our skulls this season is that Jake is, like, really serious about finding a wife. As opposed to other Bachelor stars who are there for what reason? Minus 11.

To that end, Jake boots both girls after the 2-on-1 date. Deep in thought, he then SETS THE ROSE ON FIRE! Plus 12 for that staged, but hilarious moment.

At the rose ceremony, he calls time out! Minus 5, because you shouldn't be able to do that. He wants to cut an extra girl. Understanding pimp Chris agrees.

The final rose goes to ... Vienna Girardi! Plus 8 for dragging that inevitable result out as long as humanly possible to mess with us - and royally piss off Ali.

TOTAL: +1. SEASON: +24. Rose recipients: Gia, Corrie, Tenley, Ali and Vienna. Sent packing by Jake Pavelka: Ashleigh, Jessie, Kathryn, and Ella.

Things our wives said:

  • "I really hate how much they scream."
  • "[Gia] looks like a high-maintenance airhead, but she's so pretty."
  • "[Vienna] needs to lay off the dark eye shadow. Her clothes are really bad too. I mean, where do you even BUY some of those outfits?"

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are involved in drama every week - at least on the cover of tabloids. But this time, the celebrity gossip hit a little close to home.

In Touch Weekly alleged last week that Angelina had an affair with a dialect coach she worked with for her upcoming film Salt. Not so, according to E! News.

That's because he didn't even work with Jolie on Salt.

"All my friends thought it was hysterical," said 51-year-old Howard Samuelsohn. "I've had eight different reporters call me. One was even outside my home."

He says that In Touch contacted him asking about the nature of his relationship with Jolie. His response: "'Yes, I know her professionally. She's very nice.'"

Ha. Dude's totally nailing her. That gives it away.

Could Brangelina actually be - gasp! - happy these days?

Samuelsohn added that on top of not working with Angelina Jolie on her character for the movie, he's been "with the same woman for 33 years" himself.

Meanwhile, the Waldorf Astoria, where housekeeper Anna Kowalski told In Touch she saw kinky evidence of the tryst, says no such person works there.

Despite being taken to task, In Touch stands by its story, semantics aside, saying a source verified that Kowalski worked at the Waldorf last summer.

"We never claim Anna was a current employee of the hotel or provide the specific name of her coach, of which there were several," an In Touch rep said.

"In Touch stands by our reporting on this story." Congratulations!

Perhaps this latest blip on the radar will disappear soon. A source close to the couple says Jolie and Pitt are planning on attending the Oscars. Together.

Eh, Star will still break them up tomorrow probably. Or at least assert that Jennifer Aniston is meddling again and Angie is slowly losing her marbles.

Heidi Montag doesn't do a thing without "career" implications in mind, and her 10 plastic surgeries in one day are no exception, says the doctor who did them.

The reality star's transformation has shocked the world (or at least celebrity gossip sites), but her surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan calls it a “well thought out career move.”

Fake Boobs on Display

Ryan says the Heidi Montag plastic surgery bonanza came about because Mrs. Spencer Pratt felt self-conscious about her out-sticking ears and protruding chin.

She was also motivated by the desire to look her best to excel in show business, an industry that, too often, focuses too much attention on style vs. substance.

"I couldn’t have done that," Ryan said. "Sitting down there with the wisdom of someone older and thinking: 'What is it I really need to do to propel my career?'"

Gross.

"Is it right or wrong to use plastic surgery to propel your career? I don’t know. But since Marilyn Monroe and back, its been happening, so that was her decision."

Ryan also Radar Online that Montag’s husband, the incomparable Spencer Pratt, was Heidi's rock when it came to supporting his wife in her bold decision.

"I think Heidi was 100 percent essentially, and Spencer was plus minus about it," Ryan said. "But he wanted to support her because he really loves her."

The doctor said he believes The Hills starlet's decision making was sound.

"Liposuction and breast surgery go on in great numbers," he said. "Heidi is 23 [and] has been voting for five years. She is an adult, she made an informed decision, she made a good call as an adult ... dads are really anti-breast implants."

"The reaction is either that they want to support their daughter or son getting plastic surgery, or saying, 'Honey, you are perfect just the way you are.'"

Was she more perfect before or after? Tell us! Heidi looked better ...

Love is in the air for Rihanna. But should she beware?

Questions are surfacing about the singer's new beau, L.A. Dodgers baseball star Matt Kemp, and allegedly abusive behavior by him toward women in the past.

Blah blah blah blah Chris Brown blah blah blah blah.

In June 2008, Kemp's ex-girlfriend, Felisha Terrell, filed a temporary restraining order against him, alleging she endured "constant verbal abuse and threats."

"He has other people calling me, stalking me and I feel afraid for my safety," she said, though the case never went beyond this both sides agreed to move on.

A rep for Terrell quickly released a statement yesterday when this story first broke, saying, "To be very clear, Matt was never physically abusive to Felisha."

Orange Hair

Should Rihanna watch out for new love Matt Kemp?

Terrell's attorney at the time, David Diamond, says the allegations were truthful: "It was the harassment, it was the stalking and it was the intimidation."

Kemp's camp denies all of it. His agent, Dave Stewart, says Terrell's case never moved forward "the statements made within [her complaint] were false."

"This happened a year ago and it's really a non-issue," he says. "He was saddened by the whole thing, especially considering [Rihanna's] been through."

Kemp's lawyer, Richard A. Stilz, further backs up the player, saying "He denied [the claims] emphatically, even verbal abuse. He's not that kind of person."

The singer's rep had no comment. Matt Kemp and Rihanna were first spotted as a couple over the New Year's holiday, vacationing in Dubai and Cabo.

Despite the tragic death of her father Daniel, Nancy Kerrigan is still showing the class and courtesy for which she is known throughout the skating world.

"She is really struggling," said 1992 Olympic silver medalist Paul Wylie, who checked up on his former teammate. "But she called to thank me for calling."

Kristi Yamaguchi, who also competed with Kerrigan, offered condolences by text, and Kerrigan responded, "Thank you, I really appreciate all the support."

Authorities charged Nancy's brother, Mark Kerrigan, with assaulting his father who died in an altercation at the family's Massachusetts home January 24.

A cause of death has not been determined, but Daniel Kerrigan's wife, Brenda, tells the Boston Herald he may have suffered a heart attack.

Nancy Kerrigan competed at the 1992 and 1994 Olympics.

At a Monday arraignment in the Boston suburb of Woburn, Mark Kerrigan pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and was held on $10,000 bail.

"I am so saddened for Nancy," Yamaguchi, also winner of ABC's Dancing With the Stars' sixth season, "My heart goes out to Nancy and her family."

"Nancy is part of our family and the loss of a parent is devastating. I always smile when I think of Dan because he was a lot of fun and he had such pride for his daughter and her accomplishments. That meant a lot to Nancy."

Mark Kerrigan "appeared intoxicated" and had to be pepper sprayed by cops after the alleged altercation, according to the Stoneham Police Department.

He "became belligerent and combative" and police say Mark admitted he put his hands around his father's neck and at first thought his dad was faking it.

His attorney lawyer said that Mark Kerrigan suffers from post traumatic stress disorder from his stint in the Army, and has been living in his parent's basement after spending time in jail for assault and battery related charges.

Tiger Woods should hire Mel Gibson as his personal PR guy.

For the second time in as many weeks, the actor has seen fit to run to the golfer's aid, unprovoked. Tiger's mistresses had better watch out, too, because it seems like Mel is developing serious feelings for the world's #1 golfer.

"So, you know, I love the guy. He's full of flaws, like all the rest of us. And he's going through a rough time," Gibson told Good Morning America Monday.

"I feel bad for the guy, I mean, they're beating the hell out of him."

Tiger may be in sex addiction rehab after balling more than a dozen waitresses while married and having two little kids, but to Mel, that's easy to get past:

He's only human, after all.

Mel Gibson mug shot

Mel Gibson loves talking about Tiger Woods for some reason.

"Ask any human being walking on the planet, 'Have you ever done anything that you're not proud of?'" the Edge of Darkness star posited. "And I think most people will say, 'Yes. I've done a few things I'm not too proud of.'"

Well, yeah. But does that give you license to do whatever you want and say you're only human after? Or make you immune from public criticism somehow?

Fortunately, Mel broke down the Tiger Woods scandal, in all its sordid and incredibly dubious detail, into one simple statement that no one can argue with:

"Jeez, I just want to watch him play golf. I want to see him swing a club, man."

Okay, Mel, we're with you on that. Ever since Thanksgiving, when Elin Woods did the swinging, we've missed Tiger on the links. Come back soon, man.

Hunky unwed baby daddy Levi Johnston is speaking out against claims by Bristol Palin that he is neglecting to support their one-year-old son Tripp.

Levi is "baffled" at Bristol's demand for child support, as he's offered her some money in the past but she hasn't taken it, according to his lawyer.

Attorney Rex Butler says Levi has told Bristol on several occasions he wanted her to come to his house to pick up checks for Tripp's child support.

Butler says Levi also told her "it would be nice" if she brought Tripp along when she picked them up, as Levi wanted to spend time with his son.

On each occasion, Bristol Palin was a no-show.

Redneck

Thus, Team Levi says Bristol is to blame for not getting the support she wants, as he was prepared to hand over $3,000 but Bristol never showed.

As for why Levi Johnston didn't just put the check in the mail, the attorney responded, "Why should he have to do that. He's not dangerous to her."

Bristol filed for $1,750 a month in child support last week from Levi, claiming he's only paid $4,400 since Tripp was born in late December 2008.

Levi's manager says he has forked over more than $10,000. His camp wouldn't say what Levi made in '09, but they say much less than $250,000.

Lastly, Butler says Bristol's been driving around in a $60,000 Cadillac Escalade that he believes Sarah Palin bought ... and he thinks none other than the former Alaska Governor is controlling Bristol and is behind the latest legal move.

She's probably behind Bristol's belated abstinence pledge too.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have more in common than Angelina Jolie flying into a jealous rage at them - they're both among stars donating major bucks to Haiti.

The actress has given $500,000 to Doctors Without Borders, Partners in Health and AmeriCares for their recovery efforts in the disaster-stricken Caribbean nation.

Yes, They'll Reunite!

Aniston also participated in Friday's star-studded Hope for Haiti Now telethon, which as of today has raised a mammoth $58 million. Well done, Jen and everyone!

Jennifer Aniston mans the phones for a good cause.

Jen gets a bad rap for being pathetic and lonely, and for possibly meddling in the love life of Brangelina, but this leaves no doubt what a terrific person she is.

With her outrageous getups, sexually-charged songs and blood-soaked performances, Lady Gaga has become a bona fide star at just 23 years of age.

Much has been written about her, but in an interview with Barbara Walters on 20/20 Friday, Gaga said there are some big misconceptions out there.

That she has a penis is one of those misconceptions, but more on that in a moment. What she hates most, she says, is hearing that she is artificial.

"The truth is that every bit of me is devoted to love and art," she said. "I aspire to try to be a teacher to my fans... to liberate them of their fears."

Just Gaga Over Gaga

Asked about lyrics that seem to imply bisexuality, Gaga confirmed that she's had sexual relationships with women, though she's only been in love with men.

Gulp. Turning her attention to the ongoing Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors, the singer put them to rest (sort of) once and for all. This was the exchange:

Barbara Walters: You've heard the rumors going around ... the rumor that you are both a man and a woman?
Lady Gaga: [pause] I'm familiar with it.
Barbara Walters: Is it true?
Lady Gaga: No.

Well, there you have it. Although, asked if she is upset by such rumors, Gaga said her androgynous appeal is a big reason for her success, and doesn't exactly go out of her way to limit that. So believe whatever you want about her!

It's time to give Javaris Crittenton his due.

The Washington Wizards guard has been largely overlooked as the other dude in the gun-toting, locker room standoff with the team's star, Gilbert Arenas.

But let's not forget that it was Crittenton who:

  1. Allegedly threatened to shoot Arenas in his surgically repaired knee after he lost money to him at cards, sparking an infamous prank gone awry
  2. Happened to be strapped himself, pulling his piece after Arenas laid four firearms out in the locker room and left a note telling him to "Pick 1"

For his role in this ridiculousness, Javaris Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor weapons violation. Arenas pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge.

STRAPPED: Javaris Crittenton will no longer be packing heat.

Crittenton pleaded guilty Monday to possession of an unregistered firearm. The D.A. will drop a charge of attempted carrying a pistol without a license.

The player apologized for what he called an “embarrassment” before being sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation for the misdemeanor.

Senior Judge Bruce Beaudin ordered Crittenton to do outreach work with young people in the Washington, D.C. He was also fined a total of $1,250.

Crittenton’s lawyer, Peter H. White, says Crittenton brought a legally owned, unloaded handgun to D.C. “only because he legitimately feared for his life.”
