Not cool, Tom Sizemore.

The Saving Private Ryan actor has been charged with one count of misdemeanor spousal battery stemming from a violent August 5 altercation in which he allegedly whomped on his girlfriend - not his spouse, interestingly enough.

Tom Sizemore, 47, was originally due to be arraigned today in Los Angeles Criminal Court, but the hearing was pushed back to Wednesday, October 7.

Following the bust, the Golden Globe-nominated head case spent a brief stint in Los Angeles County lockup. He was released after posting $20,000 bail.

Few are shocked when Tom Sizemore and trouble find each other.

Tom Sizemore is still scheduled to take part in the next season of VH1's Sober House, which has put him under the same roof as other troubled celebrities.

Including his ex-girlfriend, former madam Heidi Fleiss (above).

Wonder if that's going to be super awkward. That show should recruit Kari Ann Peniche while they're at it. Nothing like nude tapes coming out of rehab.

John Mayer threw down the celebrity mug shot gauntlet today, challenging TMZ to produce his booking photo from 2001, when he was arrested for driving with a suspended license in Atlanta (the case was then dismissed a month later).

Mayer issued the challenge via his official Twitter last night, and let's just say the crooner should know better than to underestimate the power of the Internets.

The latest addition to our gallery of celeb mug shots hath been found:

John Mayer Mug Shot

A youthful-looking John Mayer mug shot, dated May 2001.

In conclusion ... John Mayer is still a douchebag. But considering his end of the bet - that he will pay $25,000 to a charity of the celebrity gossip website's choice if they could dig up the mug shot - maybe he's not that big of a douchebag.

Assuming he pays up, that is.

It feels like June 2007 again, with Anne Heche and Coley Laffoon trading barbs in the press, accusing each other of instability and laziness (respectively).

Some feuds are worth a second go-'round.

Laffoon is firing back after Heche's visit to The Late Show with David Letterman last night, in which she called him a lazy ass among other adjectives.

"I wish Anne Heche could see that public bullying isn't good for the soul or positive for her child. It's mean," lamented Laffoon on his Facebook page.

"After coming home from showing two different clients two different condominiums, I was disturbed to see Anne taking out personal frustration on the father of her child on national television," added Coley, 35, in a bid to sound important.

No word on whether Coley Laffoon has his $3,700-a-month child support checks from Anne sent directly into his Poker Stars account, or if he prefers casinos.

He apparently works as a real estate agent, but you wouldn't know it from last night's interview, when Anne Heche was asked what her husband's "deal" is, and derided him for bragging about coaching their son's youth soccer team.

Moreover, describing what he does for a living, Heche said, "Dave ... Here's what he does. He goes out to the mailbox and he opens up the little mailbox door and goes, 'Oh! I got a check from Anne! Oh! I got a check from Anne! Yay!'"

During their contentious divorce, Heche alleged that Laffoon had no job and spent his time ogling naked babes, playing poker online and going to strip clubs.

He responded, of course, that the former lesbian was crazy. Solid argument.

Your move, Anne.

Never too far from controversy even as an established pop institution at age 51, Madonna was hit with a wave of boos at her concert in Bucharest, Romania.

Why? Because she stopped her concert to raise awareness about discrimination against Roma gypsies across Eastern Europe. The crowd apparently didn't take.

Madonna didn't even bat an eye amid the jeers, demanding "freedom and equal rights for everyone ... Gyspies ... homosexuals .. people who are different."

More power to her. It's all about human rights and being able to live life in peace. If a woman wants to date man, woman or child (Jesus Luz), that's a right!

Check out the video below to hear Madonna's comments and the crowd reaction. She can be heard saying "god dammit" in frustration around the 1:15 mark:

Britney Spears' shows at Madison Square Garden are getting absolutely panned by the press, as she's apparently mailing in dance moves and lip-syncing even worse than usual, relying on flashy lights and costume changes to get by.

Well, the crowd is still getting riled up by something.

Steamy Britney Picture

Security had to remove three fans from the aisles of the New York City arena after other fans complained that they were dancing too provocatively.

Yes, fans complained about risque dancing. At a Britney Spears concert. Apparently her shows are G-rated and not at all based around her sexuality.

One ousted fan, Sandra Ion, said, “I guess there had been a complaint from someone in our section that our dancing was too risque. Meanwhile, Britney is onstage gyrating half-naked and singing ‘Get Naked.’ It was totally ridiculous."

"They should have just moved whoever complained instead of all of us.”

Britney Spears shows often involve scenes like this. They are true family events, which is probably why three fans were ejected Tuesday night for "suggestive" dancing.

No details on what Sandra and her friends specifically did to get the boot from security, but we wonder how it could possibly have been worse than:

Either way, her handlers should consider enlisting these fans as backup dancers to liven up the painfully boring concerts lately. Spice it up, Britney!

A-Rod and Kate Hudson have been getting all the celeb gossip attention in the clubhouse - to the dismay of rival New York Yankees girlfriend Minka Kelly.

But are Derek Jeter and Kelly the ones taking it to the next level, in secret?

Tamera Mowry, Adam Housley

"Derek and Minka are secretly engaged," an insider told the New York Post.

This is almost certainly a lie, but the paper says the Yankee captain and the actress are telling close pals to "save the date" for nuptials in the fall.

"The wedding is being planned and will take place after baseball season is over," said a source. But is it just gossip concocted to sell newspapers?

A rep for Kelly said, "There is no fall wedding planned to Derek Jeter."

Is Minka Kelly engaged to Derek Jeter?

Well, that kind of sounds like a "no," but it's an awfully specific denial, no? The kind where they could marry December 22 and say it wasn't in the fall? Or marry in a civil ceremony with a judge officiating and not call it a wedding?

Page Six also points out that the gorgeous Friday Night Lights star denied she was even dating the future Hall of Famer when they were seen together last year.

Now ... she hasn't been spotted with a ring! Case closed!

Despite her fiance's blatant, confirmed alleged cheating, Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski are doing fine and looking forward to moving on with their life together.

That's according to friend Melissa Rycroft, who competed for the love of Jason Mesnick along with Jillian (and eventual winner Molly Malaney) on The Bachelor.

"She is doing really well," Rycroft said at a Kenneth Cole charity event in L.A. "Jillian and Ed are happy, and I know she is excited to become a U.S. citizen."

"She's moving to Chicago [where Ed Swiderski lives] soon."

The buzz surrounding Ed in recent weeks has centered around dalliances with Lindsey Johnson and Bethany Steffen before, during and after The Bachelorette.

Basically, he two-timed both of them before Jillian was in the picture, then continued to text and have sex with at least one of them after he proposed.

There are even reports he left a Chicago bar with another woman last week.

Jillian Picture

Melissa Rycroft said she hopes Jillian Harris will marry Ed Swiderski.

"I absolutely do. I know they love each other, and I know they are planning a wedding, and I know she wants to marry him. I hope it works out for them."

"You know, granted it's not my business to comment, but Jillian's real life is fantastic," Melissa Rycroft stressed, diplomatically and perhaps untruthfully.

As for her own wedding to Tye Strickland, M-Ry said, "We had to register online!"

Tye added: "I think it's the coolest concept ever, of course! I have never registered for a wedding before. I can just go online and pick out all the stuff and people are going to buy it for me! We should get married more often!"

Hopefully for Melissa, this engagement actually takes, unlike her previous effort.

Chris Brown has pleaded guilty to felony assault (and given five years' of probation as a result) and apologized to Rihanna personally (multiple times, says he).

He's even professed regret in a YouTube video for the world to see.

But the disgraced R&B star still had something to say, because he sat down with Larry King on Wednesday at CNN's Hollywood headquarters for his first interview since his arrest for beating Rihanna senseless on the eve of the Grammys.

Brown's mother Joyce Hawkins was also there, as well as attorney Mark Geragos. A source says Brown's mom got very emotional and cried during the interview.

Chris Brown's interview will air Wednesday, September 2.

According to reports, the no-holds-barred chat featured Brown answering each and every question put to him. We don't know yet what exactly was asked.

One can assume, though, that the star's probation report, which indicated he got rough with Rihanna twice before the now-infamous assault, was a topic.

Brown was formally sentenced yesterday this week to five years' probation, 52 weeks of domestic-violence counseling and 180 days of community labor.

He will complete that in his home state of Virginia.

If you were curious what Anne Heche really thinks of her deadbeat ex-husband, she left little to the imagination on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Asked what her seven-year-old son Homer's father is up to, or specifically, what his deal is, the Hung star said, "Well... can you say 'lazy ass' on TV?"

Heche and Coley Laffoon have been bickering ever since he filed for divorce in February 2007 after five years of marriage. She said he was a loser who watches porn and hits strip clubs, while he has called her mentally unbalanced.

Last June, they reached a settlement in which the actress agreed to pay him a $275,000 lump sum and $3,700 per month in child support for their son.

But Heche is still bitter. Asked by Letterman what Coley Laffoon does for a living, Anne said: "Dave ... he goes out to the mailbox and he opens up the little mailbox door and goes, 'Oh! I got a check from Anne! I got a check from Anne! Yay!'"

Wow.

Heche also scolded Dave for marrying girlfriend Regina Lasko: "I told you, don't get married. Forever engaged is a wonderful romantic thing to do."

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are attention whores to the max. They will say, and do, pretty much anything to get celebrity gossip websites to cover it.

And we do, time and again. We are suckers.

Because this is their whole schtick, and they are keenly self-aware of it as well as successful, it often seems pointless to call Speidi out on its absurdity.

Comparing Heidi to Michael Jackson, though?

In a new interview, Spencer Pratt told MTV’s The After Show that Heidi is a “new, modern day, 2010 Michael Jackson. Like Michael Jackson’s in heaven."

"The holy spirit now has Michael Jackson juice, so boom," the slimy one said, fresh off Heidi's epic Miss Universe crap-fest Sunday night in the Bahamas. "For all we know, Heidi gets possessed with Michael Jackson’s divine spirit.”

So basically, he is likening probably the worst performer in the history of music to the recently-deceased, most successful and revolutionary star in the history of entertainment for the sake of headlines. That's Spencer Pratt for you.

Just to prove he really said this, here's the video ...
