Scorned wife Sandra Bullock has delayed filing for divorce because she wants to work out an amicable deal with husband Jesse James, according to reports.

He was linked to Michelle "Bombshell" McGee last month in a salacious cheating scandal, during which a handful of other trashy women also came forward.

The Exclusive Showdown

In addition to the mere fact that he was cheating on Sandra Bullock a lot, the publicity has been extremely tough on her and she's kept a very low profile.

So why hasn't she formally filed for divorce?

According to supposed insiders, she wants to work out and a deal with James before the papers are even filed, so as to avoid an ugly, public court fight.

“Sandra will definitely be filing divorce papers, but wants to make sure everything is lined up perfectly first so it doesn’t get messy,” the source revealed.

“She wants to tie up loose ends and make it quick and painless. She wants to make sure when they divorce he won’t discuss their relationship publicly.”

Despite Jesse's apparent efforts to save the marriage via sex rehab therapy, all indications are that Bullock wants out of the union, quickly and cleanly.

Quick and clean may be wishful thinking if Jesse, who sources say wants his old life back, isn’t even ready to accept the marriage is over. Whatever.

Sandra is hoping that he will accept the marriage is over and be reasonable about a divorce, and continue being as discreet about things as possible.

That probably means no comment on McGee's alleged plan to off her.

Shaquille O'Neal's estranged wife Shaunie has made some serious allegations against him before, but nothing like death threats ... coming from their son.

That's right. In court papers, Shaunie claims the NBA star, who she is divorcing, recently ordered their son to deliver death threats to her new boyfriend.

Lawyers for Shaunie O'Neal allege that jealous, deranged Shaq "interrogated" the couple's children to tell him everything they knew about her new man.

This "to the point that they felt intimidated and scared of him."

Shaunie also claims Shaq told their 6-year-old son to tell her boyfriend that Shaq "is going to kill him," and that Shaq even screamed orders at the kid:

"Say it now! My daddy is going to kill you!"

Shaq and Shaunie O'Neal pre-mistresses and pre-death threats.

Pretty lame if this is true, Shaq. Nothing like sending a six-year-old to deliver a threat when you cheated on her... and are seven feet tall and weigh over three bills.

Shaunie's lawyers demand Shaq halt "inappropriate discussions" with their kids, an alleged violation of the non-disparagement provision of their divorce judgment.

To that end, Shaq is threatening VH1 with a lawsuit if its show Basketball Wives, which features Shaunie, makes any additional references to the big man on the air.

The Diesel is accused of affairs with Vanessa Lopez, Dominica Westling, Laura Govan and who knows who else during their marriage. Lopez is suing him as well.

Shaunie is looking to secure a $h!tload of money.

It seems like only yesterday that we doubted Suri Cruise even existed, figuring the spawn of TomKat may have instead been an elaborate Scientology hoax.

Our mistake - and our cutest one ever.

Four years ago today, Suri entered this world to an insane father and a formerly hot mom. Just kidding. About the last part, that is. It really is her birthday.

Ever since April 18, 2006, she's been the Hollywood child most often featured in our gallery of celebrity photos, With a face like this, it's easy to see why ...

FOUR, PLAY: Suri hugs a plush elephant. Aww.

Often the subject of tabloid gossip (rumors she wears an $850 purse, etc.) or baby whispers (TomKat may procreate again), Suri is always so darn cute.

As celebrity babies/toddlers go, they do not get much more adorable. Click to enlarge more Suri Cruise pictures and wish the birthday girl a special day:

Reports that Larry King and Shawn Southwick are having second thoughts about divorcing surfaced on Friday, as did a story about them seeking therapy.

Is there a chance this troubled marriage could still be saved?

Sources are saying that Shawn Southwick, who accuses Larry King of cheating with Shannon Engemann, her sister, remains open to patching things up.

One caveat: She's convinced Larry's still boning Shannon.

Shawn Southwick's little sister has denied doing King. Shawn herself is accused of having an affair with their two kids' Little League coach Hector Penate.

That said, they appeared to be on good terms at their sons' baseball game and reportedly agreed to meet together with a marriage counselor on Monday.

Neither side has withdrawn divorce papers, however, and conflicting reports suggest that the marriage, for which there is no prenup in place, is kaput.

Any sitdown would be part of an effort to maintain stability for their two kids, ages 11 and 9, during a divorce, sources told the New York Daily News.

"I believe there is very little chance for reconciliation," King's lawyer Dennis Wasser said. "My most current information is the divorce is proceeding."

"People either go to reconciliation sessions to save their marriage or just to make sure their actions are in the best interest of the children," he says.

"If I were a betting man, it's for the latter."

King's spokesman, Howard Rubenstein, added this, however: "Don't assume anything. All you can presume is that his major interest is his children."

A friend says neither outcome would surprise him: "Their whole marriage is one big spat. They're both drama queens. They break up to make up."

"Shawn has been important in keeping Larry alive. She helped him lose weight and quit smoking." Well, can his previous six wives can say that?

After hearing that the FBI investigated her for ordering a hit on Sandra Bullock, we can officially say Michelle "Bombshell" McGee is in a class by herself.

Not a good class, either. As if cheating, stripping, porn, and Nazi pics weren't enough, this confirms she's one of the shadiest people we've ever covered.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Luckily, she wasn't tied to any actual wrongdoing in this case. But the fact that it was even investigated is crazy enough, and given her reputation ...

The FBI recently investigated a tip about a murder plot against Sandra Bullock that was allegedly arranged by the heavily-inked Jesse James' mistress.

Law enforcement sources say roughly two weeks ago, McGee's ex-husband, Shane Modica, reported that he received a call from some man in Missouri.

Michelle McGee didn't actually try to have Sandra Bullock popped, but when you look and act like she does, officials probably have to investigate every possible lead.

The caller claimed Bombshell wanted to put a hit on both Modica and Bullock ... and that he personally was the one who was supposed to do the job.

Modica reported the caller claimed he received the "order" for the killings before Bombshell's role in the Jesse James cheating scandal came to light.

The local FBI office contacted the local sheriff's office, as well as notified the FBI in Los Angeles, and ultimately concluded the threat was "not credible."

Phew. That's fortunate. We've seen Michelle McGee nude, strapped with ammo and riding a bomb, but good to hear she's not an actual murderer.

You're not, right Michelle?

Tiger Woods has returned to golf, but his cheering section is about to decline by one, as Elin Nordegren consults divorce lawyers in Florida and California.

According to reports, the former model has not spent one night with her husband since he returned from sex rehab in time to prepare for The Masters.

Elin Nordegren's New House

Instead, Elin Nordegren Woods stays in the Isleworth community near their Orlando, Fla., home in a separate house with their two kids and nannies.

"Elin is over Tiger, it's time to get her house in order," says a source in Orlando, who says it's less of a question of if Elin will divorce Tiger, but when.

As we reported this week, Nordegren is talking to lawyers about divorce possibilities, and when and if she files, it will most likely go down in Florida.

Elin Woods reportedly has a prenup that would pay $20 million if she stays married for 10 years, but has had legal experts pursue sweetening the deal.

Unconfirmed reports say Woods offered an additional $80 million in a revised prenup, but even that won't make her put up with (or put out for) him.

One thing that is confirmed is that she bought a $2 million Swedish home on a secluded island and is fixing it up. Is she moving to Sweden for good?

Elin, reports say, will soon go to her new Swedish home for a visit. What's unclear is if she comes back ... not that a divorce would be quick or easy.

In Florida, where there are children involved, the law requires a three-month parental counseling course before any divorce would become legal.

Florida has done this to try to decrease divorces and protect the children in hopes of changing the mind of the parent who wants to sever the ties.

Also, if Elin Woods does divorce Tiger, the assets are so numerous, it could take more than a year to review them all and hammer out logistics.

Bottom line if/when she does? Tiger is going to get reamed. Nothing is official yet, but what do you think Elin Woods should do?

Lauren Conrad returning to The Hills is a long shot at best.

But that doesn't mean fans wouldn't love it, former bosses aren't advocating it and the show's producers aren't trying to figure out some plan for it.

Lauren Conrad Films with Lo Bosworth

"The show gave her a great run," Teen Vogue editor Lisa Love, who managed LC and Whitney Port, said at Diego Della Valle's MOCA fundraiser.

"She should definitely come back for the series finale."

The Hills creator Adam DiVello, in the news this week after being accused of harassing Heidi Montag (a claim MTV and Lauren Conrad deny), is up for it.

In fact, he's already been thinking of the ideal scenario.

Lauren Conrad's signature expressions made The Hills a hit.

Conrad's final appearance on the show came during Speidi's wedding, when she was officially replaced as the leading lady by Kristin Cavallari.

MTV would love to film her at another wedding - her own.

DiVello says his dream is to have Lauren walk down the aisle in the last episode, but clearly that's not happening, unless Kyle Howard already proposed and the show is prepared to pull off a huge surprise this summer.

Doubtful. But, "It'd be fun if Lauren and I caught up in Paris," Love said. "I think they could find a way to make it work with her coming back."

You can bet your bottom dollar they'll at least try. Follow the link to check out the final season trailer for The Hills spoilers and teasers galore.

What better way to celebrate your two-year dating anniversary, which happened to be Valentine's Day, than getting engaged? Are we right here?

Christina Applegate said last year that her goal was to find "happiness and joy" – and she's done just that with her new finacé Martyn LeNoble.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

"Christina Applegate and musician Martyn Lenoble are engaged," her rep confirmed to People Friday. The couple got engaged on February 14.

Applegate has sure been through a rough couple of years.

The Samantha Who? star was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and later underwent a double mastectomy, then reconstructive surgery.

We're thrilled that she's feeling better - and engaged!

This will be the second marriage for both Applegate and LeNoble. No date has been set for the wedding, but we're sure it will be magical. Congratulations to both!

Rapper and noted Yankee fan Jay-Z is suing Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz for opening a nightclub in his native Dominican Republic named "Forty-Forty."

Jay-Z thinks that's a sample that's too close to his line of "sports lounges" which carry the "40/40 Club" name ... even if Big Papi is spelling out the digits.

Jay-Z and business partner Juan Perez own 40/40 Clubs in New York City, Atlantic City and Las Vegas and have plans to open venues in Tokyo and Macau.

They have accused Ortiz of "trading on the fame, value and goodwill of their name through his club Forty/Forty and its website, www.fortyforty.net."

Okay, but would he sue Alex Rodriguez for the same thing? Just asking.

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK: If you can't beat 'em, sue 'em! Wait, the Yankees won the World Series last year. Never mind. That's just adding insult to injury then.

The lawsuit also notes that "David Ortiz is fully aware of plaintiff's Manhattan 40/40 Club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions."

Jay-Z named his club "40/40" because in baseball, that refers to a 40-home run, 40-steal season, or "as exclusive as it gets." Cool name for a club.

An odd choice for Ortiz to rip off, though, as he is one of the slowest land mammals to ever roam this planet, having recorded just 10 thefts career.

Make he just likes the food (clearly his waist line would corroborate that)... or he means 40 injections in 40 days, or some better steroid reference.
