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.”

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 ...

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!

Lady Gaga may or may not be a hermaphrodite. But by letting it all hang out, we're not referring to anything physical that may or may not be hanging.

We're just saying that in her latest photo shoot (for Out magazine), she has left little to the imagination, going all out as only Lady Gaga truly can.

Case in point, here's Lady Gaga, nude, in a graveyard ...

Lady Gaga Doggy Style

The gays love some Lady Gaga. So do the straights. What a uniter!

It's no Lady Gaga nude covered only by bubbles, but ... well, it's pretty similar. Check out the Out gallery of pics from famed photog Ellen Von Unwerth to see a side of Lady G (real name) Stefani Germanotta like you have never seen before ...

If she has both male and female genitalia, she's concealing it pretty well in some of these pictures. Then again, photo editing software does wonders.

What do you think? Is Lady Gaga a hermaphrodite?

We know you were just dying to hear from Hailey Glassman herself what a stud her new boyfriend Jon Gosselin is. Well thanks to E! News, you can on Monday.

First, a passed-over Kate Major had her time in the limelight, lamenting that Jon led her on and calling him a liar for his subsequent, contradictory statements.

Jon responded that he's glad Kate's out of his life. Kate, as in Major, a.k.a. Kate 2.0. That's probably also true of Kate 1.0, his grating estranged wife, though.

In any case, E! has nabbed Jon Gosselin’s 22-year-old party animal girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, for an exclusive interview with Giuliana Rancic August 17.

Hopefully Hailey Glassman is asked about this classy photo.

Despite rumors of him giving it to everything with a pulse since they first got together, the two confirmed in recent days that they are in fact still together.

Hailey Glassman is set to speak up about being in the middle of the Jon and Kate Gosselin divorce and address the rumors, scandal and gossip revolving around her relationship with the father of eight during a one-hour special.

No doubt this will be a gripping, enlightening hour of television.

Les Paul, who changed the course of music by inventing the electric guitar and multitrack recording, and had a string of hits of his own, died today at age 94.

He passed away in White Plains, N.Y. During the early 1950s, he and his second wife, singer Mary Ford, were among the most popular acts in all of show business.

As recording executive Ahmet Ertegun said in 1988 upon Les Paul’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, “Les Paul is an inspiration to a world of guitarists for his playing, for the instrument he created and his multiple-track recording innovations."

"Without him, it’s hard to imagine how rock and roll would be played today.”

Les Paul enjoyed enormous success in a performing career that lasted more than 80 years, selling more than 10 million records and earning 34 gold records.

“What he was doing on those hits couldn’t have failed to influence any guitarist,” Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, a vastly different player, once said of Paul.

He will be missed!

Aubrey O'Day, Emmy Rossum, Melrose Place star Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and her husband Pete are among the celebrities starring in the second PSA for the NOH8 Campaign, entitled "I'm Coming Out," to raise awareness about Propostion 8.

As Carrie Prejean rolls over in her grave, these celebs speak out against what they see as an injustice, that not everyone is allowed to marry who they wish.

It's a nicely put-together video. While he does not appear in the NOH8 PSA, we know Brad Pitt would approve of this effort to promote marriage equality ...

If you think the headline above is too much information, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are just getting started. Just what you wanted, we know.

In addition to Heidi Montag Playboy photos, the men's magazine has treated us to an interview, conducted by Spencer, in which his better half reveals a lot about plastic surgery, former co-star Lauren Conrad, and of course, boning.

Some nauseating excerpts ...

Heidi to Spencer, on their sex life:

“I knew what sex was, but when I met you I entered a new realm of understanding, from fantasy to love, to experience a day with 20-30 orgasms. Before you, sex was just something that happened. Now it’s something I look forward to every minute."

Try to turn away from the keyboard as you vomit.

Heidi Pratt in Playboy

Spencer, on watching Heidi's Playboy cover shoot:

“It was f*%king torture! I got the biggest case of blue balls in history. I wanted to shut down production after the outfit change so I could enjoy you all to myself."

"I suggest they bring something like that to Guantanamo Bay. Who needs waterboarding when you can have Heidi Montag posing in these outfits in front of you, in front of the ocean, and not be able to make a move on her? I’m not kidding.”

Heidi, on shopping for fake boobs:

"I wanted the best, so I sat down and flipped through some Playboys. The women are so hot. Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra, Marilyn Monroe, all the Playmates."

Spencer, on Heidi suggesting she enlarge her fake boobs even more:

“Don’t do it for me. I think you have the best custom made breasts in the world right now. I don’t need any changes. I’m already driving a Bugatti every day.”

Heidi, on Lauren Conrad:

“The millions of people waiting for season six of The Hills love us. It’s not about Lauren Conrad, because she’s not even on the show now. Which is fine with me.”
