The now-infamous doctor expected to be charged in the death of Michael Jackson, Dr. Conrad Murray, was going to be arrested, booked and arrainged today.

But, well ...

There's a feud between the L.A. County D.A.'s office and the LAPD over the terms of his surrender. These agencies are both intimately involved, and at odds.

It sounds like mostly politics, rather than any cracks in the case, but here's the very basic gist: the LAPD is bent out of shape about being kept in the dark.

The D.A.'s office had been working with lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray to arrange his voluntary surrender in court at the time of the arraignment today.

Infighting bought Dr. Conrad Murray at least a few hours.

Dr. Murray's lawyers were to drive him to the L.A. County Sheriff's Office at the Airport Courthouse in L.A. at 5:30 a.m. Friday, along with a bail bondsman.

He would be booked, post bail and then walk into court without cuffs or chains. This is often done to avoid the media circus and spectacle of a public arrest.

However, the LAPD objected, as cops want to arrest Conrad Murray, book him and bring him into court in handcuffs, something standard in homicide cases.

The D.A. reportedly backed off, and plan for Murray's voluntary surrender fell apart. According to TMZ, there is no arraignment today now. But we'll see.

When and if the authorities straighten this out, Murray is facing an involuntary manslaughter charge in connection the June 25 death of the King of Pop.

She was kicked off The Bachelor after an "inappropriate relationship" with a crew member (which probably never happened), but Rozlyn Papa is over it now.

Producer Ryan Callahan was fired over his alleged dalliances with Rozlyn, although the exact nature of their relationship has always been disputed. Oh well.

Putting her bitter feelings aside took time, but these days she's in good spirits and weighing in on Jake Pavelka's final four - as a member of Team Tenley!

"If I were matchmaker, it would be Jake and Tenley," Rozlyn said, to the surprise of few, as there's little to dislike about sweet, squeaky Tenley Molzahn.

"I really liked her. She's my favorite!"

Rozlyn Papa (right) is a card-carrying member of Tenley Nation.

Emerging as a favorite herself before "the incident" sent her packing, Rozlyn also weighed in on the rumored winner and chief Tenley competitor, Vienna Girardi.

"Vienna is always sweet," Papa says. "She's a different breed. I didn't really get to see her interact with Jake very much, but I heard she makes it pretty far."

Despite the unfortunate circumstances that got her kicked off, whichever side you believe, Rozlyn says she harbors little ill will against Jake or The Bachelor.

Still, she can't resist maintaining her innocence and getting in a quick dig.

"There was never any sex between any producer and myself at any time. But it's great been for that show! Chris Harrison is still talking about the scandal."

You said it, Rozlyn. Who should Jake choose on The Bachelor?

Britney Spears' outfit at the Grammys was universally lampooned by TV critics and THG readers alike (she got whomped by Katy Perry in our fashion face-off).

Almost overlooked, given that hideous lace bodysuit / corset debacle, was Spears' return to her natural brown hair. What do you think? Is it a positive change?

The girlfriend of Jason Trawick has once again taken a walk on the dark side (only in the literal sense, natch), trading her Barbie-blonde locks for raven waves.

Which look do you prefer? Vote below!

Sorry, we had to. Each of these outfits (and plenty we've left out) would be worthy of its own article, but we've compiled some of our favorite Lady Gaga pictures from the past six months. Talk about fashion equaling performance art!

What will she wear next? Will she ever release a song that doesn't hit #1? Is she a hermaphrodite? Who knows. There are only two things we know for sure:

  1. This is only an abridged gallery.
  2. If last weekend's Grammys and other recent concerts are any indication, the next six months are going to produce an even better gallery than this!

Anne Hathaway would love to kiss Angelina Jolie ... or at least kiss like her. The Valentine's Day star says "full-on movie kissing" isn't one of her strong suits.

Angelina, thought? Well, we all know how she split up Brad and Jen and about her (supposed, fictitious) affair with Lady Gaga. No wonder Anne wants in!

"You have to be Angelina Jolie to pull that off and still look good," she says of the forceful movie kiss. "I don't know if you've noticed, but I ain't no Angie."

No, but we've also noticed she's no slouch herself ...

Anne in GQ

Anne Hathaway heats up the pages of GQ UK.

She did offer tips on what she calls "pretty movie kissing," using the back of her hand as the lucky recipient. Guys everywhere are so turned on right now.

"You just have to relax, leave your mouth open a little bit," she tells the magazine's March issue. "Open up. More, more, ever so lightly." Easy there, fellas.

"Otherwise you're going to be getting smoothy. Now, slow it down ... just a little bit."

How jealous are you of Adam Shulman right now?

"If you're both unattached and you get along, of course kissing in a movie is fun," she says. "But you can never get truly deep down and into it. Well, I can't."

"Jennifer Garner - now that girl can movie kiss!"

We now return to your regularly scheduled gossip.

Sonny with a Chance star Tiffany Thornton is engaged!

The Disney Channel star said "yes" in December to Christopher Carney, a court officer who Thornton started dating last year. Oh, how exciting!

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

When asked about her love life early last year, the 23-year-old actress said simply that "I don't have a lot of time to go on dates with people."

Looks like she changed her mind - and lucky she did!

Now if only she can find time to plan the wedding, as they have not yet set a date for their big day. Congratulations to the couple regardless!

You be good to Tiffany Thornton, Christopher Carney!

Kate Gosselin is headed back to television. Just not on her own talk show, as has been rumored. She'll be returning to a familiar gabfest as a guest host.

The former reality mom will once again be on The View March 11.

Kate and Tony Picture

She last sat around the table of the talk show in September when she replaced Elisabeth Hasselbeck for three days while she was on maternity leave.

This time, Hasselbeck will be present along with Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and a lot of yelling and screaming.

Jon Gosselin, meanwhile, will be present in every tabloid who will take his picture along with new piece Morgan Christie, surely drawing Kate's ire.

Ugh. Enough, Kate. We get the point.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office said today that actress Brittany Murphy's cause of death was pneumonia "exacerbated" by multiple drug intoxication.

Chief Investigator Craig Harvey ruled it an accident.

Murphy also suffered from iron deficiency and anemia, Harvey said, adding that the star, who died December 20, "wasn’t the healthiest person in the world."

Though a number of prescription drugs were found in her bedroom, her husband Simon Monjack claimed that she was only taking Vicoprofen and Fluoxetine.

The latter is an antidepressant to treat menstrual cramps. Harvey said the drugs in her system "will be in the toxicology report" to be released in a few weeks.

R.I.P. Brittany Murphy (1977-2009).

He said that all drugs were "oral medications." Meanwhile, other sources close to Brittany Murphy's autopsy have said the star's death was "preventable."

By that, they mean Brittany's condition was "treatable" but no one took Murphy to the hospital in time. Too much self-medicating with various drugs "pushed her over the line" but the underlying problems were the pneumonia and anemia.

Murphy weighed 115 pounds at the time of her death.

Monjack was questioned a second time this week about what meds Brittany was taking and where they came from. Also, officials want to know why she didn't see a doctor in the months leading up to her death if she was so noticeably ill.

Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki, says the supposed nude pictures of her are as fake as J-Woww's chest ... well, she didn't use those words, but you get the idea.

Snickers may spread her legs on the dance floor at Karma and make MTV's editors earn their paychecks, but you won't see Snooki nude pictures anytime soon.

Snooki Poof

The Jersey Shore star denies that she appears in nude photos or videos being hawked to celebrity gossip magazines, which was rumored earlier this week.

Radar Online said the Nicole Polizzi naked material left nothing to imagination, with her waring just a smile and posing in a manner "too graphic to describe."

But Snooki said earlier today that the story just ain't true. Thank goodness.

Snooki from Jersey Shore: Thankfully covered up ... relatively speaking.

“Like i said before about my supposed ’sex tape’…There are no nude pictures nor will there ever be,” she Twittered. “The tabloids just love Snook gossip.”

The wedding of last season's Bachelor stars, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, will be a joyous occasion. But for one person, it will also open up old wounds.

No, not Melissa Rycroft. She's moved on and gotten married herself (we kind of hate you, Tye Strickland). We're talking about Bachelor honcho Mike Fleiss.

The show's executive producer remains confounded by Steve Carbone, a.k.a. Reality Steve, a blogger who knew and spoiled the shocking finale last season.

This season, Steve is at it again, somehow publishing The Bachelor spoilers detailing how Jake Pavelka's entire saga would play out, and accurately so far.

Some of the details - especially as they pertain to Rozlyn Papa and Vienna Girardi, among others - have been remarkably specific, too. So who's his mole?

Could it be Mike Fleiss himself?

  • The Aviator

Mike Fleiss: Jake Pavelka's Bachelor puppet master.

Fleiss maintains he's not in on it, and that the spoilers getting out "kind of bugs us." However, on the flip side, “In some ways, it’s just more promotion."

"We would like to find out [who his source is],” he adds.

While Fleiss says the show has taken extreme measures in the past to track down moles, he has not gone to great lengths to expose Reality Steve's ... yet.

He may have no real incentive, as the spoilers don't keep fans away. The Jason-Melissa bombshell "After the Final Rose" dumping drew 17.5 million viewers.

This season's are on pace to equal or top that. Steve says he and Fleiss are not in cahoots, and he'll "one up" The Bachelor simply because ... well, he can.

“I don’t go looking for this stuff, it comes to me because I’m willing to throw the show under the bus,” he explains of his sources, which "fell in my lap."

“I don’t think ratings have suffered. People are still watching because they want to see it play out," he adds. Indeed. Spoilers or not, we all want to know ...

Who should Jake pick?
