North Carolina's WRAL News says it expects former U.S. Sen. John Edwards to admit that he is the father of former mistress' Rielle Hunter's daughter.

This report comes on the heels of a Thursday article that claimed a DNA test proves Edwards is father to Frances Quinn Hunter, who is 18 months old.

Rielle Hunter Baby: Frances Quinn Hunter

Edwards, a two-time Democratic presidential candidate, confessed last August to an affair with Rielle Hunter, a videographer on his 2008 campaign.

John has denied fathering her daughter, saying his relationship with Rielle Hunter ended before the child was conceived. However, he was busted visiting Rielle in a Beverly Hills hotel last summer after the little girl had already been born.

This incident forced him to admit the affair, which he initially denied as well. The name of Frances' father is left blank on her birth certificate.

Andrew Young, a long-time Edwards campaign aide, initially claimed to have knocked up Rielle Hunter, then promptly disappeared from the planet. But Young is reportedly now writing a book in which he will claim Edwards is the father.

Rielle Hunter spent nine hours last Thursday at the federal courthouse in Raleigh, N.C., where the grand jury was meeting. She brought Frances Quinn along.

One likely reason for Young's change of heart? A federal subpoena.

A grand jury is investigating whether John Edwards' campaign funds were illegally paid to Rielle's "production company" to keep her quiet about the affair.

Andrew Young was at the federal courthouse in July when the grand jury was meeting. It is unclear if Edwards will face criminal charges for the payments.

Sources said Edwards' public admission of paternity could come before the end of the criminal investigation, however, as he's being backed into a corner.

The shady politician would almost certainly prefer to keep lying, as he did about the affair for quite awhile, but the investigation may be forcing his hand.

If Elizabeth Edwards hasn't already kicked her cheating, lying husband of the house, this ought to be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel's back.

Police were called to the home of Jon and Kate Gosselin last night after the soon-to-be divorced spouses got into a heated argument, according to new reports.

One source close to the situation described the situation as such: "Kate showed up at the house unexpectedly during Jon's scheduled time to be with the kids."

As the couple's marriage has unraveled, so has the civility between them in recent weeks. It was quite apparent that Jon Gosselin was not happy to see her.

"Kate couldn't get access to the house. She was upset," said the source.

Tensions between Jon and Kate Gosselin are heating up.

It's not clear who called the police (our money is on Mady and Cara), but witnesses say they heard Jon and Kate arguing audibly. The police arrived but no arrests were made, officials say. Kate Gosselin left and checked into a local hotel.

Perhaps Jon was angered by Kate's media tour this week, during which she's made increasingly scathing remarks about her ex and his post-split lifestyle.

Last night, Kate really gave it to Jon on CNN, primarily for him giving it to new play thing Hailey Glassman - under the same roof as the kids, she alleges!

If so, that's a pretty bold move, Jon. But then again, so is nailing Stephanie Santoro, who's employed as the kids' babysitter when she's not waitressing.

Who sucks more?

We take back what we said about Heidi Montag's Playboy photo shoot. Well, not what we said about the wife of Spencer Pratt being unattractive and airbrushed. That's still true. But Heidi Pratt actually is sort of nude in Playboy after all.

Not full-frontal style by any means, but more risque than the weak sauce PG-13 Playboy photos that were leaked following ridiculous hype earlier this week.

Heidi Montag didn't actually hold back as much as we thought. A bunch of her Playboy pictures we obtained may not be totally naked, but are quite risque.

She's already rounded third and headed for home with Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, but Kate Hudson won't get any hugs in the dugout from Minka Kelly.

The Friday Night Lights star is the girlfriend of New York's captain - and perceived A-Rod rival - Derek Jeter. And Minka doesn't like A-Rod's new play thing!

At home games, relations between the two actresses are said to be colder than fan reactions to those $2,000 seats at the new Yankee Stadium.

"There's been visible coldness between Minka and Kate," an insider told the New York Post. "I don't know if it's a personal thing, or just an extension of the ongoing A-Rod-Derek Jeter rivalry. But people are choosing sides."

Forget Red Sox-Yankees. This rivalry on the periphery the team with baseball's best record is far more interesting than your average MLB rumors.

Minka vs. Kate

Who would you rather ...

 

According to New York media sources, Minka Kelly has been dating Jeter since last year, although you'd scarcely know it. She prefers to cheer him on from his private seats and keeps a low profile, rarely being photographed with him.

Then Kate Hudson burst on the scene.

She's been snapped kissing Alex Rodriguez in the stands, and recently switched from sitting in a private box to hanging out in the family seats, cheering on the team with Yankees wives such as Amber Sabathia and Karen Burnett.

Hudson, who also enthusiastically attended the Bombers' family picnic, seems to have gotten an early thumbs-up from veteran Yankee spouses Michelle Damon and Laura Posada, whose stamp of approval is crucial, a Post source said.

Reps for Hudson and Kelly didn't respond to requests for comment, but we are holding out hope for a public war of words, and/or a cat fight in the stands.

Michael Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, had a stash of the powerful anesthetic Propofol hidden closet in the late pop star's house.

That has been known, or at least presumed. But there are now signs that Murray either stored Propofol elsewhere or received regular deliveries.

Law enforcement sources say that they found three large bottles of Propofol and five smaller vials of the anesthetic in Michael Jackson's house.

The drugs were found in the closet attached to Dr. Conrad Murray's bedroom - where he administered Propofol and Jackson died in his bed June 25.

Police think Murray left him unattended after giving him the fatal dose.

In any event, anesthesiologists say if the stash was used to keep Michael asleep for eight hours, it would require about three bottles and five vials. In other words, the entire "stash" would have lasted one night. So he likely had a supplier.

Conrad Murray regularly administered Propofol to keep Jackson asleep.

It is believed Murray was getting shipments of the drug through FedEx and may have been storing it outside Jackson's home, so he could regularly administer it.

A search warrant used to raid the Las Vegas pharmacy that Dr. Conrad Murray has used in the past has been obtained and there appears to be a direct link between the doctor and Propofol - and possibly a link to Michael Jackson as well.

Documents show authorities were looking for credit card receipts and other documents related to drugs purchased by Dr. Murray on May 12, 2009. The warrant mentions specific vials of Propofol manufactured by Teva and Hospira, Inc.

The LAPD found Propofol manufactured by Teva at Jackson's house.

Authorities were looking for FedEx records relating to "purchase, transfer, receiving, ordering, delivery and storage of Propofol to Dr. Conrad Murray."

The bottom line is that the authorities believe they know where and when the drugs that killed Jackson were purchased, but are leaving no stone unturned.

Wes Hayden may be the most hated man in the history of The Bachelorette, but that only goes for the fans, and is largely thanks to ABC's shady editing.

The country singer just wrapped up a guys’ weekend in Austin, Tex., with some other former contestants from the past season. No one seems to hate him.

“Tanner [Pope], who lives in Dallas, drove up while Mike [Stagliano] and David [Good] and the rest of the guys flew in to have a good time,” Wes said.

“I loved hanging out with the guys. We had a great time.”

Some of the guys hit a local spa resort, while the whole group hit local hot spot Ranch 616, where they shared dinner, drinks and gossip about The Bachelorette winner Ed Swiderski - and claims he was/is unfaithful to his fiancée Jillian Harris.

“I had no clue whether Ed had a girlfriend on the show. I didn’t know about it,” says Wes, who was also rumored to be dating Laurel Kagay while wooing Jillian.

“But if it’s true, I feel really bad for Jillian. I don’t know what to believe to be honest with you. I feel bad for Jillian and for [Ed Swiderski]. But if in fact he was doing what everybody’s been saying, then man up and deal with it.”

Wes Hayden, Jillian Harris

Fans really hated Wes Hayden. But he doesn't seem that bad.

The controversial country singer, who says not to believe everything you see on TV, and went on record saying the producers sabotaged him, expressed doubt about whether romance can blossom on The Bachelorette at all.

“I have a hard time grasping that any of the show’s intentions are genuine,” he said. “If Jillian honestly came on the show looking for love and thought that she found it and then found out it was all made up and Ed was cheating on her, that’s awful.”

As for Jillian Harris, Wes Hayden says, “We connected on the show and we’re always going to be friends.” But he’s focused on pushing his first album Full Circle.

“I’m not dating anybody; I’m way too busy right now,” he says.

“I see a lot of my sister right now though. She goes on the road with me wherever I go. But you know, if I meet the right woman, I’d like to settle down.”

Following its lead singer's serious fall off stage at a South Dakota show, Aerosmith just announced the cancellation of the remainder of their tour:

"In his current condition, Tyler is unable to tour and the band wants to give him time to get healthy," reads the statement from the rockers.

"Words can't express the sadness I feel for having to cancel this tour,” says guitarist Joe Perry. "I would like to thank our loyal fans for sticking by us through thick and thin. We hope we can get the Aerosmith machine up and running again soon."

Meanwhile, Steven Tyler has issued his first public comments on the fall:

"We were in the middle of "Love in an Elevator," Tyler said, "and the band slowly realized something was up. Well, I wasn't gonna go hide under the big top and play ROCK STAR and wait for everything to be fixed.

"I wanted to go out to the crowd to continue the show... so, the Train Kept A- Rollin' and I ran out on the cat walk and grabbed my mic to finish the song. I was doing the Tyler shuffle and then I zigged when I should have zagged... AND I slipped."

"As I live on the edge... I fell off the edge!

"I landed upside down, and after twenty stitches on the back of my head, and a broken left shoulder, I just want to say that I'm plain grateful that I didn't break my neck! In truth, after thousands of live shows, falling off the edge four times ain't too bad."

A good attitude. Here's a video of the Steven Tyler accident ...

You gotta give Jon Gosselin credit. He is not half-assing this newly-single thing. Las Vegas' MGM Grand's Wet Republic announced the following Thursday:

"Jon Gosselin, America’s favorite father (Jon and Kate Plus 8), is coming to Las Vegas for a little R&R and will be hosting poolside," read a statement.

So many half-nude, slightly unbalanced chicks.

Hopefully, underage drinking is also encouraged. We know if Jon has his way he'll be down. In any event, the event will take place August 29.

A Vegas source says Jon's gathering has sparked as much interest as when Lindsay Lohan hosted her 23rd birthday at the hot spot in July.

Both certainly like to get around.

Grade A Douchebag

Get ready to party down with "America's favorite father."

Gosselin will be in Sin City with Christian Audigier to attend MAGIC, a clothing industry trade show. No word on their joint fashion line yet.

Jon infamously debuted his relationship with 22-year-old Hailey Glassman on the Ed Hardy designer's yacht in the South of France last month.

He then went on to fool around on Hailey with Kate Major, and possibly with Stephanie Santoro, but then said he was with Glassman all along.

She bought it, apparently.

The Hills' Audrina Patridge, Kendra Wilkinson, Kim Kardashian and Mario Lopez have also thrown soirees at Wet Republic in the recent past.

The Hills' resident villain and PR svengali, Spencer Pratt, has turned another year older and richer on this 14th day of August, 2009 A.D. Say what you will about the man, he has turned being a media whore into art. Very lucrative art.

Having made himself rich and famous simply by existing, being overexposed and universally hated, Spencer Pratt deserves a tip of the hat on his 26th birthday.

By loving to hate him like we (and so many others) do, we're playing right into his hand. Which we know, and yet we don't stop. Because it's just too much fun.

Here are 26 photos of Mr. Heidi Montag to celebrate the big day ...

  • Heidi Pratt Playboy Cover
  • A Speidi Smooch

Australian actress Abbie Cornish first rose to prominence as a co-star in a real-life domestic drama involving then-married Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon.

Cornish, 27, and Phillippe, 34, met on the set of the movie Stop-Loss, and today they share a home in L.A. – "where it was love that brought me here, not work."

On Men's Health

"I think the city feels and looks a little bit different because of that.”

Reese Witherspoon has publicly called divorce humiliating and isolating, Cornish tells W Magazine, saying that she was "cast as the culprit." As a result, she's looking back on the period when the spotlight fell on her as "a really difficult time."

Abbie Cornish is contemplative in W Magazine.

Out of nowhere, the actress reflects, she was forced to enter a realm of paparazzi and celebrity gossip coverage "that I had never been exposed to. In a normal successful career, someone usually learns these things bit by bit."

"For me, it was like night and day," Abbie Cornish continued. "I woke up one day and there was this whole new thing I had to process and deal with."

Since then, Abbie has moved in with Phillippe and spends time with his and Reese's children: Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5. Glad to hear it worked out!
