It was a moment everyone talked about for an entire week and will not soon forget, either. A moment that inspired much wrath and online video parodying.

As Kanye West stormed the stage at the MTV VMAs to declare that Beyonce should have won Best Female Video over Taylor Swift, we were dumbfounded.

So was Beyonce, who is now speaking about it for the first time.

"Well, I knew his intentions, and I knew he was standing up for art; and he told me before, when they said the nominees, he's like, 'You have this award,'" Beyonce, 28, recalled to O: The Oprah magazine editor at large Gayle King.

SIDE NOTE: If he's standing up for art, he's at the wrong award show. They're completely arbitrary! He may be an even bigger jackass than thought.

Beyonce, who was named Woman of the Year at the Billboard Awards over the weekend (Kanye would approve), said it went down like this that night:

"When they didn't call my name, he was, like, completely shocked," Knowles says of West's reaction. "And when he walked on the stage, I was like, 'No, no, no!' and then when he spoke, and I was like, 'Oh, no, no, no!'"

Like her husband Jay-Z, who defended West as passionate, she doesn't condone how that passion translated into potentially hurtful actions that evening.

Knowles, who handed the mic to Swift after winning Video of the Year later that night, added, "But in the end, it ended up being a great night, and Taylor Swift did get her moment, and I didn't have to make an acceptance speech!"

After his outburst, Kanye West apologized multiple times on his blog, to Jay Leno and to Swift, and declared he was taking time away from the public eye to "analyze how I'm gonna make it through the rest of this life and improve."

He's putting his money where his mouth is, at least for now. It was announced last week that his Fame Kills tour with Lady Gaga had been canceled.

Jon Gosselin has traded barbs with estranged wife Kate for a week. At least in that public war of words, he can release his lame statements separately.

During a panel discussion on The Insider Tuesday, CNN News anchor Nancy Grace absolutely owned Jon, hilariously scolding him over his recent antics.

On top of saying how Jon only pretended to care about his kids after his show was renamed Kate Plus 8, she said he's all talk but doesn't walk the walk.

Furthermore, Nancy Grace ripped Jon Gosselin for parading around with "one 22-year-old after another," lambasting his recent conduct with women.

Apparently no one told Nancy that he and Hailey Glassman are exclusive, but there was that fling with Deanna Hummel. And Kate Major, and Stephanie Santoro ...

IS JON A GOOD DAD? We know how Nancy Grace feels.

Earlier today, Jon accused Kate of hiding cash. This followed reports that he cleaned their account out of more than $200,000 and left her just a grand.

As Jon tried in vain to defend himself, if you can call it that, she called him out again - for not being able to speak without his lawyer Mark Jay Heller.

Perhaps the best moment? When Grace asked Gosselin a question about his children, and he started to talk about how he could do things better.

"Why is this always about you?" she said. "How does it always get back to you?"

A stunned Jon was speechless.

When we last saw Serena Williams showing off her body, the part on display was her mouth, as the tennis champion threatened the life of berated a line judge and was ultimately disqualified in an epic U.S. Open meltdown.

Now she's making news for better - and less controversial - reasons.

ESPN The Magazine’s first-ever “Body Issue,” which hits newsstands Saturday, October 9, features the jacked and curvaceous Serena Williams nude ...

First, Tyra Banks, Hilary Duff and Tory Burch. Now Lady Gaga.

The dance-pop hit machine is filming an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl today on New York's Lower East Side. Fortunately, unlike Banks, she'll appears as herself.

She'll be debuting some original Gossip Girl music on the show, which certainly will mesh with the CW series' genre of tunes and its hip young audience's tastes.

The New York Daily News and E! Online both reported the Gaga's guest role today. The New York City native is getting ready to rock the house in her hometown.

Lady Gaga checks her pants ... or whatever you call those.

News of Lady G's appearance on GG comes the same day as a scandalous story of a future threesome coming our way on the November 9 episode.

Perhaps she takes part in that plot line ... and we can finally see if the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors are true after a shocking bedroom reveal!

Probably not, but how great would that be?

The pride of Scarborough, Ontario, Jayde Nicole is the coolest export from Canada since Molson XXX. Okay, she's probably even cooler than that potent brew.

The 2008 Playboy Playmate of the Year is known for that distinguished honor, but also as the girlfriend of Brody Jenner. Some guys have all the luck, eh?

Rumor has it that Jayde Nicole, who engaged in an infamous feud with Audrina Patridge last season on The Hills, will soon be bickering with another co-star.

That would be Kristin Cavallari, who Brody Jenner used to date (obviously), and who is now starring on The Hills, following the retirement of Lauren Conrad.

While Audrina and possibly Kristin may have beef with Jayde on MTV, here's something no one can argue with: She looks smokin' hot in the new Maxim ...

Aside from The Hills, Jayde has been on shows such as Bromance and The Girls Next Door, and hosts Party Muscle Cabo, E! News Daily and Canada's eTalk Daily.

Not only that, Jayde has her own charity, “Lengths for Love,” in which Nicole and her girlfriends (including fellow Playmates and celebrities) grow out their hair for a year before donating it to Pantene's “Great Lengths” cancer patients.

After watching a screening of the new movie Precious - which centers on a teenage girl struggling to overcome mental and physical abuse - comedian Tyler Perry said "a large part of my childhood had just played out before my eyes."

Perry then revealed he was sexually and physically abused as a child.

"I always thought I would die before I grew up," Perry, 40, wrote in a letter to fans on his Web site, before recounting the various abuse he suffered.

One night, he says his father "came home mad at the world. He was drunk, as he was most of the time. He got the vacuum cleaner extension cord, trapped me in a room and beat me until the skin was coming off my back."

He says a neighbor woman molested him at age 10 and that his grandmother tried to to rid him of his allergies by giving him "a bath in ammonia."

"She said she was going to kill these germs on me once and for all," Perry recalled of an incident that surely scarred him for life in multiple ways.

Tyler Perry is going public with a painful part of his past.

Watching Precious - which he produced, along with Oprah Winfrey, "hit me so hard. I sat there in tears realizing that somehow, by the grace of God, I made it through. My tears were tears of joy, being thankful that I made it."

Like Mackenzie Phillips, Tyler Perry hopes his tales of hardship will help those who suffered similar (and worse) abuses in their formative years.

Looking back, Perry says his faith has gotten him through tough times. "Forgiveness has been my weapon of choice. It has helped to free me."

"If you're having a hard time getting over something in your life, maybe you can try forgiveness too. It's not easy, but it does bring forth healing."

Talk about a painful story but also an inspiring message from a guy who's obviously overcome a lot to achieve a strong career doing what he loves.

It's now as if Mel Gibson's 2006 DUI arrest, which made for one of the more ridiculous stories in recent celebrity gossip memory, never even happened.

That's because Judge Lawrence Mira just signed legal documents in Malibu, Calif., expunging the misdemeanor DUI from the actor and director's record.

The judge noted the conviction still is relevant for "gun control purposes." It can also be used as a prior conviction if Gibson gets popped for DUI again.

Mel's lawyer, Blair Berk, requested the motion to dismiss on September 21 after Gibson successfully completed the terms of his three-year probation.

Smokin' Mel Gibson

SMOKED! Mel Gibson has wiped his record clear of his DUI arrest.

If you recall, Mel Gibson was pulled over for DUI, after which he was taken to a police station in what the cops called an arrest "without incident."

Later, a four-page report of the deputy's original notes were leaked, in which it was documented that Mel went on an insane anti-Semitic tirade.

In addition to saying Jews are to blame for the world's problems, he also tried to smash a pay phone and referred to a female cop as "sugar t!ts."

Mel pled no contest to misdemeanor DUI and was placed on three years probation. Gibson recently completed all the terms of said probation.

It's good that he can finally sort of put this behind him, and now he can prepare for the birth of his love child with Oksana Grigorieva in peace.

Former Late Show with David Letterman staffer Stephanie Birkitt said in her private diary that she continued having sex with Dave even after moving in with her CBS-producer boyfriend, Robert Halderman, who later allegedly tried to extort him.

According to the New York Post, Letterman and Birkitt enjoyed romantic hikes last fall at his ranch in Montana, where he married Regina Lasko in March.

All the while, Birkitt's beau Halderman, a CBS News producer, was home in Norwalk, Conn. Birkitt told him she and Dave had "a platonic relationship."

"I'm his best friend," Stephanie Birkitt told a worried Robert "Joe" Halderman.

Stephanie Birkitt's rumored cheating on Robert Halderman, her boyfriend of several years, may have driven him to blackmail David Letterman, according to reports.

Apparently, he was such a good friend that at least once a week, he drove Birkitt to the house she lived in with Halderman since he divorced his wife in 2004.

According to the diary, Birkitt, a recent graduate of Benjamin Cardozo Law School in New York, was offered a job by Letterman to be his personal attorney.

Birkitt later tried to use the generous offer to persuade Halderman to have children, saying she'd make good money and he could stay home with the kids.

Halderman reportedly went through the roof when he read Birkitt's diary in December, after she moved out (and somehow inexplicably left her private diary).

It was then he learned she was still carrying on an affair with Letterman.

These details emerged as Letterman returned to the Late Show for the first time since Thursday, when he revealed he'd had sexual affairs with female staffers and became targeted in a $2 million extortion plot by Halderman as a result.

Last night, Letterman attempted to blend humor with earnest apologies as he made many jokes at his own expense, then turned serious as he addressed the affairs, apologizing to wife Regina and his staff for the pain he's caused.

We don't cover all that much TV news, but when reports begin circulating about threesomes on Gossip Girl, that crosses over into our kind of salacious gossip!

Yes, there's going to be a real Gossip Girl threesome on the CW drama's November 9 episode. Three of the major characters. In bed. Going at it. Together.

The only question is the obvious one: Who's involved in this thing?!

We don't have the answer to that, nor do we even know the male-female ratio of those involved - though we're guessing FMF or MFM, not three of one gender.

Some of the scenarios we have to imagine are more likely than others:

  • Chuck-Blair-Nate (Ed Westwick-Leighton Meester-Chace Crawford)
  • Georgina-Dan-Olivia (Michelle Trachtenberg-Badgley-Hilary Duff)
  • Serena-Dan-Blair (Blake Lively-Penn Badgley-Leighton Meester)
  • Serena-Georgina-Carter (Lively-Trachtenberg-Sebastian Stan)

There are plenty of other combinations. Who do you think it is?

It's gotta be Chuck (Ed Westwick), Blair (Leighton Meester) and someone ... right?

In Round #578 of the most ridiculous sleaze-said-she-said PR exchange THG can ever recall, Jon Gosselin is firing back at estranged wife Kate Gosselin.

Jon takes issue with Kate's claim that he withdrew $230,000 from a joint account from August 10-present (how do you even do that, in $10s and $20s?).

Kate claims he took all their liquid assets and that their kids can't eat.

According to The Insider, Jon Gosselin calls this story "a total fabrication ... I withdrew $22,000 last Thursday, and I have the paper trail to prove it."

Last week and again on various talk shows Monday, Kate tearfully said that Jon ganked their money and left her unable to pay bills for their children.

"If I have to work at McDonald's, I'll do what I have to," Kate said by phone on The View, having filed court papers to force Jon to return the money.

These two really need to get in a cage and finish this for good.

Kate's lawyer also wants Jon to be held in contempt for his actions, which team Kate says defy a court order. But Jon is blasting his estranged wife, who he says is lying about how much money he's got and about being nearly destitute.

"I've never taken any money out because over 10 years, Kate handled all the banking," he said. "Over the past four years of doing the show, we accrued $2,250,000."

"She says in the past week I took $230,000. I have withdrawn $177,000 over the course of a year, less than 10 percent of what we made. That's like my paycheck."

Jon Gosselin says if you want fuzzy math, look at the reverse mullet.

"She's hiding money," he said. "We have 11 bank accounts. That was just our joint account. She had a best-selling book, remember? Where's that million dollars?"

"I believe she's incriminating herself and not thinking clearly. She wants me to look bad. I didn't want these things to be public or for this to be embarrassing."

Whose side are you on?
