The former John Edwards aide who claimed it was he, not the former U.S. Senator and presidential hopeful, who knocked up Rielle Hunter in 2007, now says in a book proposal obtained by the New York Times that Edwards is the father.

Andrew Young says he and Edwards worked with his campaign finance chairman to hide that secret, and he helped facilitate the affair between John and Rielle.

According to the newspaper, Young wrote that Edwards told Hunter they would get married after Edwards' wife, who has terminal breast cancer, passed away.

Edwards told Hunter that the ceremony would be held on a rooftop in New York and the Dave Matthews Band would make an appearance, the Times said.

Because Dave Matthews has nothing better to do than to play a wedding for a disgraced politician marrying his baby mama after his first wife just died.

Rielle with John Edwards' daughter (come on, you know it is) Frances Quinn.

In May, federal investigators began looking into how John Edwards used campaign funds, which he may have used as hush money to buy off Rielle Hunter.

Edwards adamantly denied last summer that he had fathered a child with Hunter, though he initially denied the affair just as adamantly until he was busted.

Edwards says the affair with Hunter ended in 2006. Andrew Young said in 2007 he was the child's father. Hunter said at the time that Young was the father.

The birth certificate does not list a father's name.

In 2006, Edwards' political action committee paid Hunter's video production firm $100,000 for work. She filmed four web videos for his campaign website.

Then the committee paid another $14,086 on April 1, 2007. Edwards has said the latter payment wa for 100 hours of unused videotape Rielle Hunter shot.

Not only did John Edwards have a mistress, he may have paid her off.

The same day, the Edwards presidential campaign had injected $14,034.61 into the PAC for a "furniture purchase," according to federal election records.

Andrew Young, who fell off the face of the earth after admitting paternity, is thought to be rolling over on Edwards after being forced to testify under oath.

He recently signed a book deal with St. Martin's Press. There was a confidentiality agreement, and how the Times obtained the proposal is unknown.

Father of the year Jon Gosselin appeared Saturday at Frightworld in Buffalo, N.Y., where a local paper wrote that he was charging $7 for his autograph.

What type of idiot would actually pay that for a Jon Gosselin autograph, we have no clue. Which is probably why Jon's rep denied that part of the story.

Gosselin never agreed to any such arrangement, according to his manager. Which is good, if true, because that's $7 more than his signature's worth.

Whatever the real reason, the father of eight was the main attraction at a haunted house attraction, touring five haunted houses at the Frightworld complex beginning at 6:30 p.m., during breaks from greeting fans, and afterward.

This is not the scene in Buffalo, sadly for Jon. Hey, not every public appearance includes a pool full of mediocre girls and free drinks in Vegas. Haunted houses are cool too.

Jon was supposedly doing the appearance as part of his efforts to launch the Jon Gosselin Children's Foundation. We have no clue what that does.

Hopefully it helps pay the mountains of psychiatric bills for the children of America who have been exploited by parents on reality TV shows.

Sigh. Poor Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel. We hope the Gosselin Eight had a nice weekend at home with Katezilla.

Who does Jessica Simpson think she is, Jennifer Aniston?

Just when you thought Jen had the sad, lonely and pathetic title wrapped up, Jessica is making a quality run at the crown so far this year. Wow, things have gone from bad to worse for the alleged singer and actress, starting in January ...

Packin' on Pounds

Attempting to embark on a country music career for some reason, Jessica was "sad and hurt" after fat photos of her at the 99.9 KISS Country Chili Cookoff in Pembroke Pines, Fla., surfaced. Fat or not, those mom jeans are freaking atrocious.

A Touching Moment

A month later, Jessica "performed" on Good Morning America and hit a "technical snag." The next week, she forgot her own lyrics during what will forever be known as the meltdown in Grand Rapids. Well, to our staff members at least.

And One More Thing ...

Jessica signs on to do The Price of Beauty, a show that no one intends to watch, if it even airs features her traveling the world to examine what women do to feel pretty. Snooze. She should start with a series on her own lip injections.

Tony Romo and Jessica Pic

The night before her 29th birthday in July, Tony Romo dumped her, a heartbreaking move compounded by the fact that he's now dating Candice Crawford, which supposedly prompted her to seek out this douchebag for comfort. Sad.

Despite all of that, she at least had her beloved maltipoo, Daisy. Well, she did until this past week, when the pup was snatched by a coyote before her eyes. She held out hope that Daisy wasn't devoured, but finally accepted her fate.

Keep your pets leashed on walks, people.

Taylor Swift was making the media rounds Friday promoting her single "You Belong With Me" (which is #1), her album going platinum, and all that good stuff.

Naturally, though, all attention remains on the Kanye incident.

Back to December Art

During her interview with the MJ Morning Show on Tampa Bay's 93.3, FM, she made her desire not to talk about Kanye Weset very clear. Not that it helped.

The first time the host asked her to describe what happened that fateful VMA night, Taylor explained: "I'm just honestly trying not to make it into a bigger deal than it already is ... I just would like to move on maybe a little bit."

Fair enough. Or not. "Do you think it was a scripted thing?" the host asked.

"Well... you know, I um... I didn't know what to think, but I think that we should maybe move on and talk about something else, because, um, I've talked about this in one interview, and that was going to be it," Taylor awkwardly said.

Taylor Swift is ready to move on from the VMAs.

Still not taking the freaking hint, the rude radio host proceeded to ask if Kanye-gate was good for her career or if the rapper's apology was sincere.

"I really would appreciate it if we could talk about something else," Taylor Swift said, again. "I've asked you three times, and I'm trying to be nice."

More bullying followed, with the host saying, "Taylor, let me give you a couple of tips ..." But then, Swift walked away and her publicist took over!

A minor spat ensued, and MJ revealed his last question: "Do you think Kanye West has a mental problem?" Suffice it to say, that went unanswered.

In summation, no one messes with T-Swizzle. She is awesome. Step off.

Speaking at the Values Voters Summit in Washington Friday, the former Miss California Carrie Prejean suggested that “God had a plan for me that day” when she voiced her opinion on gay marriage ... during the 2009 Miss USA contest.

Yes. God told her to voice opposition to same sex marriage, at a beauty pageant, on national television. He works in mysterious ways sometimes.

Carrie Prejean asked during the contest by judge and openly gay celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton if she supports gay marriage. She does not.

Her answer ultimately led to so much controversy that people forget she did not actually win Miss USA (she was second to Kristen Dalton of N.C.).

Reflecting on Friday, Prejean, who was later stripped of her title of Miss California USA because God told her to she flaked on her contract, said “I’m so proud of the answer that I gave. God chose me for that moment.”

“I was a woman who stood up for the truth and people don’t want to admit it,” she continued. “I had the courage and bravery that a lot of people don’t have.”

“I am not defeated, they have not defeated me. They can say whatever they want about me and my faith,” Carrie Prejean said in praise of herself. “I always wanted to leave a legacy of courage and boldness and to show that to young people.”

The 22-year-old went on to thank her “thousands of fans who believe in me, and saw me as more than a beauty pageant girl.” Yes, so much more than that.

At the Miss USA pageant, Prejean told Hilton, “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. I think that in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.”

“No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."

Here's a video of Prejean's comments from yesterday ...

Welcome, readers of The Hollywood Gossip, to our Week in Review.

Below, we take a look back at some of the LOL moments, outbursts and news stories that made this week one of the best we can remember ... this month.

Some highlights from the past seven days:

  • R.I.P.: Patrick Swayze passed away at the age of 57.
  • In a move that spawned universal criticism and more than one hilarious parody, and will surely haunt him for years, Kanye West hjiacked Taylor Swift's speech with a belligerent tirade at the MTV Video Music Awards.
  • West apologized many times and Swift accepted, but you know it's bad when the President of the United States calls you a jackass off the record before giving an interview, then doesn't even get any flak for it.
  • In other VMA news, Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's performance of "Empire State of Mind" was really, really good. So moving, in fact, that Lil Mama decided to crash it. We have no idea who that is, but it was funny.
  • Also funny? Stephanie Pratt's plastic surgery. Yikes.

Jay Leno asks what all of America is thinking ... WTH, Kanye?!

September has been a wild month for bizarre, inappropriate outbursts and YouTube Hall of Fame moments, ranging from music to sports and even politics.

Which was the worst meltdown of them all? Let's review the contenders:

  • U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) wasn't a celebrity until his "You lie!" outburst during President Obama's health care speech. That was an all-timer.
  • Serena Williams, tennis legend, completely imploded with a profane tirade at a judge in the U.S. Open semifinals, leading to her disqualification.
  • Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Music Video Awards and belligerently said Beyonce's video was way better.

None of the above are likely to live down these infamous tirades anytime soon. But which was the most inappropriate? Vote in THG's survey below ...

Whose outburst was the most inappropriate?

Updating a story from earlier today, sources confirm that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are not just thinking about rings and maybe getting married.

They are engaged and will tie the knot in the next two weeks!

Tamera Mowry, Adam Housley

"Khloe and Lamar want to get married before he has to go away for training, and the [basketball] season starts up [this fall]," a source tells Us Weekly.

"They are hoping to pull together a wedding within the next two weeks so they can get married and have time for a honeymoon," continues the source.

"They haven't decided where they will say 'I Do,' but they are scouting out numerous locations, including Khloe's family home in Calabasas, [Calif.]."

Earlier this month, Odom gushed that he was "very happy" with Khloe Kardashian, who stars with her pregnant sister on Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami.

"Khloe is smart and beautiful and that is very hard to find," he said.

Her other sister approves as well: "He's a great guy!" Kim Kardashian said of the couple, who have been all over each other, and L.A., in recent weeks.

THG first reported Khlamar were dating September 4, just two weeks ago. But when it's time to create headlines true love, sometimes you just know.

Odom recently signed a four-year, $33 million deal with the Lakers, who he helped win the NBA title ... but can Khloe really lock Lamar up for life?!

Will Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom actually get married?

After a record-breaking run abroad, Pink has brought her "Funhouse" tour to the U.S. It's a show that's one part Britney Spears, one part Lady Gaga and one part uniquely Pink, blending passion, glitz, glamor, music and crazy stunts.

She's even playing hurt!

Minka Kelly Emmys Dress

At Seattle’s Key Arena this week, Pink announced that she separated her shoulder, but was so excited about the performance she didn’t even consider canceling, telling the audience, “The louder you cheer the less pain I feel!”

Talk about a performer.

Despite wearing the same dress as Shakira Sunday at the MTV VMAs, Pink more than made up for it with this unusual, outlandish outfit. It's very ... Pink.
