Jon Gosselin is slamming ex-wife Kate yet again.

In a new except from his Good Morning America interview, which airs Tuesday, Jon Gosselin says it was the grating banshee's "constant verbal abuse" that ended their 10-year-marriage and that there's no going back after that.

"Our relationship will never be fixed," he said. "I don't trust her anymore. I was abused. I was beaten down. I'm not going back to that life style."

America's most eligible bachelor, who now says he's exclusive with Hailey Glassman, says he tried to make his marriage work through therapy.

Kate refused to go along with it, however.

Jon also took issue with stories Kate is "spinning" to the media and celebrity gossip sites about the collapse of their marriage and who's at fault.

"I wish to God she would speak from emotions," he said. She's not. Please. The stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV."

Jon says the marriage reached a breaking point when he "stood up to Kate."

"In 10 years, I've never gone out. When she said, 'I don't want you going out,' I used to say, 'OK, I'm not going out.' I was very passive," Jon reflects.

When he finally went out one night, "It felt so good. I was beaten down for so long, I couldn't even make my own decisions. When I did, I was like, holy cow! You know? What's she gonna do? Divorce me? All right. Obviously. You know."

Rarely does one celebrity quote sum things up as perfectly as that.

Jon Gosselin says being married changed who he is. But no more.

"My mom and my brothers, they say to me, 'It's so good to have the real Jon back. It's so good to have the warm, loving, kind, caring person that we knew you when you were ... before you got married,'" the father of eight says.

He admits he's made mistakes, and "maybe it wasn't the best idea to go clubbing." But Jon says he is still "a real person with feelings" - and not just the kind of feelings he's demonstrated with so many mediocre girls of late.

Who sucks more?

Last week, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest joked on his radio show that if he could use a taser on one reality star, he would choose Heidi Montag.

Naturally, her husband-pimp Spencer Pratt took exception to the remark and issued a statement to generate some free publicity defend her honor.

"I'm disgusted and horrified that Ryan Seacrest would find it amusing and entertaining to have his listeners call in about tasing anyone," he said.

"What's next, guns and knives? Waterboarding? It is irresponsible and offensive for someone with your platform to promote violence on this level."

"For someone who produces reality content for a living, I'm shocked that you would encourage people to tase reality TV stars. Would it be funny to you if one of your Kardashians got tased? Is that how you would treat your talent, Ryan?"

Ryan Seacrest, of course, produces Keeping Up with the Kardashians, starring Khloe, Kourtney and Kim. Eh, we'd live if one or all got tasered.

  • R-Crest
  • Spencer the Pimp

Spencer Pratt is looking for a fight with Ryan Seacrest after a hilarious comment the American Idol host made. Heidi Montag could use a nice taser jolt, don'cha think?

Prior to his radio show, Seacrest Tweeted as a "funny topic" who you would most like to see tasered: Heidi Montag, Omarosa from The Apprentice, Tila Tequila (this was before Shawne Merriman choked her) and Daisy de la Hoya.

Not surprisingly, despite the formidable competition, Heidi won.

"Finding humor in violence is disgusting," Spencer Pratt added. "For someone who pretends to be mister clean-cut America, you should be ashamed. Any reasonable person knows that a taser isn't a Super Soaker and can cause immediate death."

Come on, Spencer. Brody Jenner was just fine the other night.

"I expect an apology not to just us, but to people everywhere for using your public voice to spread violence," Pratt concluded, his mission accomplished, similar to when he pretended to be offended by insults from Anderson Cooper.

Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant. Maybe you've heard by now.

Now that we've kleared that up, on to today's breaking news.

The reality star's boyfriend, "entrepreneur" Scott Disick, has adjusted to her mood swings, which are par for the course when you're pregnant, says she.

"Scott keeps getting scared," says Kardashian, who totally wishes she were knocked up by this guy instead. "But he's great with my mood swings."

"He's just like, 'Take a deep breath.'"

"He heard that with the last three months [of a pregnancy] you have mood swings so he was joking, 'Oh, you're not going to believe the mood swings!"

We're not entirely sure what that quote is supposed to mean, but in any kase, the Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami star says everything is under kontrol.

A Kourtney Picture

Scott Disick is adjusting well to the role of unwed baby daddy.

"If I'm just trying to pick a fight with someone and if I'm around Scott or my mom, then they'll probably get the worst of it," Kourtney konfessed.

"If someone is annoying me – usually my mom! – I'll call [my sister Khloe Kardashian] and it'll make me feel better because she'll agree with me."

As Kardashian's Christmas due date approaches, emotional rollercoaster and all, so does the impending news of the gender of Scott Disick love child.

"I'll know soon," she says excitedly.

Apart from being naturally curious, there's a practical reason to knowing whether she'll have a boy or a girl in light of the baby gifts she's receiving:

"How many yellow outfits do I need?" she says.

We eagerly await the answer to that rhetorical question for the ages. We expect the next bunch of pregnancy updates within the next day or so.

It's nice to see that anorexic waif and sometime actress Lindsay Lohan is already displaying the natural maternal instincts passed down to her from mom Dina.

Lindsay brought her sister Ali Lohan, 16, into L.A. clubs this weekend, for the second time in a week. This time, the skank and skank-in-training hit up Teddy's.

How a 16-year-old gets into a club is beyond comprehension, but then again, this one dresses like a 40-year-old divorcee, so the bouncers were likely fooled.

Both Lindsay and her sis were dressed for attention, with Lindsay wearing a tight jumper and lots of makeup. Jailbait wore a vest as a shirt and booty shorts.

When the wild child and her sis came off the dance floor, Linds was chain smoking in the club, setting a bad example and breaking the law at the same time.

Way to go, LiLo.

  • Poor Ali Lohan

MASTER AND APPRENTICE: Lindsay Lohan is the epitome of a Hollywood train wreck, but she's seeing to it that little sister Ali, 16, follows in her troubled footsteps.

The highlight of the night for Lindsay and Ali? Bumping into actor Jason Segel of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I Love You, Man and How I Met Your Mother fame.

Jason seemed a little embarrassed by the encounter but was gracious as the Lohans fawned all over him. So gracious that they left the club together after.

Reportedly, Linds and Ali partied at Adam Levine's until nearly 6 a.m. when they were spotted at the Chateau Marmont, with Jason getting out of the car.

No word on whether Lindsay's pad got robbed again while she was out all night, but since it's pretty much guaranteed she will be most nights, who knowd!

It looks like a 911 call could help determine who's lying and who's telling the truth in the melee between Jayde Nicole, Brody Jenner and Joe Francis.

A bar fight went down 10 days ago after Joe Francis was harassing his ex, Abbey Wilson when Jayde threw a drink on him and all hell broke loose.

That's according to Brody Jenner, who punched Francis in the face, causing Francis' people (or someone, anyway) to respond with a taser on Brody.

Well, apparently at 8 p.m. the night after the fight, Abbey Wilson called 911, claiming that Joe Francis had sent over people to clean out her home.

Francis says assistant did indeed pay a visit to Wilson, along with three other dudes with a moving truck, and took furniture and other stuff away.

LAPD officers arrived and no arrests were made or charges filed, and they eventually allowed Francis' people to continue hauling away property.

Joe Francis, Abbey Wilson

Did Joe ask Abbey to lie about what happened with Jayde and Brody?

Francis says he was frustrated Abbie Wilson was "lying" about what went down. A few hours before the movers arrived, Francis sent her a text "laying out what happened" (coaching a witness, according to how some look at it).

Whatever the reason, Abbey Wilson apparently wasn't biting.

Francis was pissed, because while he was dating Wilson he says he gave her a small fortune in material possessions, including the house she was living in.

Joe says if she was going to lie out of spite, he wasn't going to let Abbey keep those gifts. But would backing up Jayde Nicole and her story even be a lie?

Wilson feels Francis wanted her to lie about what happened because Francis could go back to jail if officials feel he violated the terms of his early release.

She claims she refused to lie, and that's when Francis retaliated by sending "the guys" over. It's looking like Jayde Nicole may be telling the truth here.

Whose side are you on?

Looks like Shawne Merriman took a shot at love, all right.

And choked and forcibly restrained love from leaving afterward.

Tila Tequila was hospitalized Sunday following an altercation with her boyfriend, who plays and sometimes takes steroids for the NFL's San Diego Chargers.

The San Diego Sheriff's Department received a disturbance call from Tila Tequila (real name Tila Nguyen) at 3:45 a.m. She told deputies she had been choked by Shawne Merriman and, when she tried to leave, he physically restrained her.

Tila Tequila signed a complaint accusing the NFL star of battery and false imprisonment. Shawne Merriman remains in custody at San Diego County Jail.

Tequila's rep declined to discuss her condition, but there was no sign of trouble hours earlier as the two partied at the local hot spot Stingaree.

"Shawne Merriman and Tila Tequila arrived and joined a birthday celebration with friends already going on in the penthouse," a club rep said.

A CHEAP SHOT AT LOVE: Shawne Merriman was interested in a shot with Tila Tequila ... and choking and restraining her against her will when she tried to leave.

"Merriman and Tequila stayed until closing in the early hours of Sunday morning. They seemed in good spirits throughout the evening and were enjoying themselves. There was no indication of any problem between the two of them."

Some were not even aware they were an item, as Tila has kept a remarkably low profile (for her) about the romance. Unlike, say, Courtenay Semel.

Merriman, 25, has been a bit of a sports and gossip staple over the past few years, notably for his 2006 suspension for the use of performance enhancing substances and having to sit out the entire 2008 season to nurse a knee injury.

You can add assault on a reality TV star to his resume. In fantasy football news, you probably want to drop the San Diego defense now if you own it.

Choose your side!

We often critique stars who won't sing in concert ... or at all. But perhaps at a certain point, lip synching isn't the most terrible concept ever created.

Britney Spears attempted to pull off a cover of Alanis Morissette's classic "You Oughta Know" during her concert Saturdya night in Greensboro, N.C.

The jury's still out on whether it was actually pulled off. Or if any fans were ejected for risque dancing. Man, this song makes you wanna lose yourself.

While it was by no means good, we admire her chutzpah, and the superstar's choice of song. Better than covering a Lady Gaga track or something.

Did Britney nail it? Or should she oughta know better than to try to sing? Check it out and see ... and pray Heidi Montag doesn't copy her hero next:

It's a rumor that has taken the Internets by storm ever since she was seen at a concert in the UK sporting what appeared to be a penis under her dress:

Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite.

While she has been getting naked for numerous magazines we've never heard of and teaming up on some new songs with Michael Bolton (yes, really), the star has yet to address the accusations that she has both male and female genitalia.

Until now. And her vagina is far from pleased.

About the hermaphrodite rumors, Lady Gaga told Australian radio station: "My beautiful vagina is very offended. I'm not offended; my vagina is offended."

A screen-capture from the concert that sparked the hermaphrodite rumor.

"I'm not embarrassed. I sold four million records in six months; I'm not embarrassed about anything. I think this is society's reaction to a strong woman."

"The idea that we equate strength with men and a penis is a symbol of male strength, you know, it is what it is. But like I said," the dance-pop diva reiterated, "I am not offended at all, but my vagina might be a little bit upset."

Well, that settles that ... or does it? Is this just a cryptic non-denial denial here? Could Lady G's vagina be offended by the presence of ... you know?

Is Lady Gaga really a hermaphrodite?

The Hollywood Gossip stops at nothing to bring you the hottest celebrity news and scoop first-hand, straight from the beautiful stars you care about most.

We also try to get dates with Kourtney Kardashian.

As featured last week on Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami, the latter Kardashian was being pimped by the former, who held open auditions for boyfriends.

She was probably already knocked up by Scott Disick, but we didn't know that at the time. All our staff member could focus on was a chance with Kourtney.

Wearing sunglasses to remain incognito, he went underkover, taking a place in line with upstanding dudes with no jobs one random weekday in Miami ...

UNDERKOVER: Sadly, our staffer's hopes were krushed and he kame up short.

Despite a glimmer of hope - he was told he was "hot" and was told to take his shirt off - he ultimately was not asked to take Kourtney out on a date. Poor.

She even told the cameras there was no chance she would date any of the guys. Talk about a slap in the face of one of our staff's most eligible bachelors.

All in all, it was a giant sham. Apparently these Kardashians prefer ringers and pro athletes (see Friday's Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom article).

Check out the video of his efforts below. He is asked around the 40-second mark how his penis is doing. Yes, that was a real question posed by Khloe ...

Welcome, celebrity gossip obsessives, to The Hollywood Gossip's Week in Review.

Below, we take a look back at the stories that made this easily the most exciting week since ... well, since last week. Some of the major highlights:

  • The Eclipse characters of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are engaged!
  • The Hills Season 5 trailer was released, and the drama looks fake as ever.
  • Gabriel Aubry got Halle Berry pregnant again! Congratulations to those two!
  • In related news, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are expecting baby #19. 19.
  • Levi Johnston said Sarah Palin wanted to adopt baby Tripp and keep Bristol's pregnancy secret, then quit as Governor to get rich. Sounds about right.
  • Chris Brown told Larry King he didn't even remember beating Rihanna, then later clarified and said that yes, of course he remembers pummeling her.
  • The official release date for Adam Lambert's debut album was announced. Idiot protesters still feel the glam rocker is some sort of rebel against God.
Huge Smile

Adam Lambert is hugely popular ... save for his insane detractors.

  • Jon Gosselin hosted a pool party in Vegas, then sat down with Good Morning America to bash ex-wife Kate as a grating harpee who neglects their kids.
  • Speaking of Good Morning America, Whitney Houston's comeback fell flat.
  • Maia Campbell apparently exists. And stars in this apparent crack video.
  • Tony Romo is dating Candice Crawford, sister of Gossip Girl star Chace.
  • Jon Voight is losing it, and not exactly what we'd call a fan of health care.
  • Michelle Obama's hair sparked debate, as it does on a recurring basis.
  • On a similar note, Paris Jackson's new haircut sent security scrambling.
  • Her dad, Michael Jackson, was finally laid to rest in a private funeral.
