Lake Bell is an actress of some kind. We're sure she's really good and all, but we cannot recall anything she's been in off the top of our heads right now.

Not that it matters, because we're here to talk about the Lake Bell nude pictures shot by actor Scott Caan (son of James) for his new book of photographs.

Scott's book features the Lake Bell pictures below, as well as many other photos of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan. Way to aim high there, Scott Caan.

Anyway, check out the glory that is Lake Bell nude below ...

Next Monday on the season finale of The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris finally makes her choice. Ed Swiderski and Kiptyn Locke are the last men standing.

Except for the ousted Reid Rosenthal, who - Bachelorette spoiler alert - looks poised to return and possibly propose to Jillian in a surprising twist.

The promo that ran after this week's "The Men Tell All" show - at which Reid was MIA - shows him returning to Hawaii for another shot at Jillian.

What does Jillian say about who returns and what happens?

"I can't really tell you too much," Jillian tells ET. "I watched the tease for the finale, and I can tell you it is an exciting episode and a crazy day. I can't tell you who comes back, but it is all very traumatic, unfortunately."

Traumatic? That doesn't sound good. Nor do some of her other comments. Maybe she is just a good bluffer, but Jillian Harris makes no reference to being engaged, or even being in a relationship with a great guy or anything like that.

Again, she could be playing it cool. But it's only about "her decision."

Jillian's Decision

"All I can say is that after all the drama is over, and I make ONE LAST FINAL decision, I hope you all are as thrilled with the outcome as I am," she wrote in her last blog. "You have no idea how excited I am to let this secret out!!!"

Then: "I struggled with a lot of decisions. Again, I admit that I’m human. But I stand by my statement that I am very happy. I have had two months living with my decisions and am still very happy with them. That is what matters right?"

Get the feeling she is pulling a Brad Womack here?

Jillian even admits having second thoughts about getting engaged, and she talks to her dad about it. He told her that accepting a proposal from the man of her choice did not mean that she has to walk down the aisle immediately.

He pointed out to Jillian, "Getting a proposal in this scenario signifies for me that you are ready. Let's have a proposal, get engaged and start a life together and a year from now see where things are at and then get married."

"My dad was very right," Jillian adds.

That said, Jillian does rate the final three men:

"I would definitely have to say for Reid, it would be his sense of humor and just his quirkiness. Kiptyn is just so genuine and has such a huge heart."

"With Ed, I would have to say it is his balance. He has a good balance in life between personal, business and family. He is a well-rounded individual."

What do you think? Is this all a smoke screen, or does Jillian Harris not pick anyone at all? Who, if anyone, will win The Bachelorette?

Kelis gave birth to baby Knight, her first with estranged husband Nas, on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Knight has been born into a rather nasty divorce battle.

The new parents, who wed in January 2005 after a two-year engagement but filed for divorce in April, have already begun duking out financial battles in court.

Britney, Sean

Kelis is seeking child support, major spousal support and legal fees from her hip-hop mogul hubby who once ruled her world. And that of rap, you could argue.

She says he makes $11 million a year and wants half. He says he is only sort of rich these days, pulling in around $140,000 a month. The recession hurts.

Kelis is officially an estranged, single, kind of broke baby mama!

There were some rumors of an alleged Kelis sex tape sending Nas over the edge, but last month, Kelis vented on Twitter about Nas' infidelities.

"This lovely day I would like to touch on cheaters. Super brief! Why be cowardly why not go after what you really want," the oddball Tweeted.

"All the scum bag husbands and less than impressive sluts unite! You can go down in flames together. I am here to say the husband is way more at fault."

That about covers it. Thank you Kelis.

Either Ben Roethlisberger accuser Andrea McNulty has painted a disturbing picture of the two-time Super Bowl winner, or she has a very active imagination.

The Nevada hotel employee accusing the Pittsburgh Steelers star of raping her last year says that she told him to stop but the football player refused.

She also alleges that she tried to report the sexual assault, but was shut down by her bosses who downplayed it and threatened her job if she spoke out.

There is also the question of the mental state of Andrea McNulty, who has been treated for PTSD, insomnia, anxiety and depression since the incident.

Is this a byproduct of what happened with Roethlisberger? Or, on the flip side, did her condition lead her to embellish what happened with the NFL star?

Below is the timeline of events, according to the plaintiff's lawsuit.

Once again, this is only Andrea McNulty's side of the story. Ben Roethlisberger denies any contact that wasn't consensual took place at any point ...

March 2003: Andrea McNulty begins work as a desk clerk at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe casino and is promoted steadily, becoming executive casino host by February 2008.

July 2008: Ben Roethlisberger checks in at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe to play in the NBC American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament on or about this date; McNulty is introduced to the Steelers quarterback by a butler there.

July 10, 2008: Ben has casual conversation with her about fly fishing.

July 11, 2008: Roethlisberger asks Andrea McNulty to come to his room to fix his TV. She obliges, cannot find anything wrong with it, and tries to leave, only to have him (allegedly) sexually assault her despite her protests.

July 12, 2008: McNulty tells hotel security chief Guy Hyder about the rape. Hyder dismisses her claims and makes some pretty crude remarks about them.

August 2008: McNulty is told that Harrah’s president John Koster will fire her if she "starts rumors" about Roethlisberger. McNulty falls into deep depression.

The Houston office of Dr. Conrad Murray is being raided by authorities who are looking specifically for all medical records relating to Michael Jackson.

Murray was Jackson's personal physician at the time of his June 25 death. He is the focal point of police and coroner investigations into Michael's demise.

Eight DEA vehicles arrived at his offices around noon CST. LAPD detectives also arrived on the scene along with uniformed members of the Houston PD.

Reports say there are at least 10 members of the DEA's Tactical Diversion Team and another dozen or so DEA agents on hand as well. Serious stuff.

A search warrant authorized law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believe constitutes evidence of manslaughter.

Armed with a search warrant, law enforcement agents entered the Houston property and began going through medical records belonging to Conrad Murray.

The doctor may be looking at criminal charges for administering Propofol to Michael Jackson - with some sources saying it is more a matter of when than if.

Propofol is a hospital-grade anesthetic that should never be found outside a hospital, yet was found in Michael Jackson's home and body after the star died.

He obviously never intended to kill Michael Jackson, so murder is off the table - but manslaughter charges seem very realistic considering what happened.

For now, he is not charged with anything. Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, issued the following statement regarding the investigation of medical records:

"The coroner wants to clear up the cause of death; we share that goal. Based on Dr. Murray's minute-by-minute and item-by-item description of Michael Jackson's last days, he should not be a target of any criminal charges."

The annoying host of that Millionaire Matchmaker show on Bravo has apparently found one of her own. We're guessing the guy isn't poor, either.

Patti Stanger is engaged to Andy Friedman, she says. The star's reaction:

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

"I feel like it should have happened years ago, so I'm kind of shocked."

Andy Friedman, a 51-year-old real estate executive that Patti Stanger, 48, met through her own matchmaker five and a half years ago - popped the question in Maui on her May 31 birthday. A black swan named Raymond delivered the ring.

Of the ring, Patti says, "I have a rule, if you go out a year and he doesn't propose, it goes up a carat a year." Because that makes a lot of sense.

The L.A.-based duo is planning 2010 nuptials, even if "I want to elope, and he wants a big wedding," she says. "I'm like, 'Let's go to Vegas!'"

It comes as no surprise that Fox & Friends aired numerous still photos from the peephole video taken of Erin Andrews, naked, changing in her hotel room.

But CBS' The Early Show showing several seconds of the video? Wow.

Sure, The Early Show blurred out Erin Andrews nude. But it marks the lowest of low points for a network that once boasted "the most trusted man in America," the late Walter Cronkite, as the face of its news department.

Cronkite died the same weekend as the Andrews tape leaked. How fitting.

The endless fascination over a video filmed without Andrews' consent - she is not an exhibitionist, just a reporter who does her job, and well - is a shame in that it sets female journalists back when she is just a victim in this.

Fox on Andrews

Fox News aired pics from the Erin Andrews peephole video shot by a "creep voyeur." This is to be expected from Fox News, of course. But CBS stooping that low?

Good to see that a shameless drive for ratings at the expense of the public or an innocent woman's reputation can even happen at a real network. Nice.

Reporting the story is one thing, but to actually air portions of the video? Unless they are secretly giving viewers viruses, we completely disapprove.

ESPN is looking into reports that someone familiar with Andrews' schedule did this at two different hotels. Whoever filmed the hotel video of Erin Andrews naked has since been trying to hawk the pics and tape to the highest bidder.

We can't wait until the perv is brought to justice and we can report it here. Until then, click to enlarge clothed, but still gorgeous Erin Andrews pics:

The claws are coming out between the women of Jon Gosselin.

At least according to a likely made-up story in Star Magazine.

Jon's new girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, and his soon-to-be-ex-wife Kate are at each other's throats, supposedly, and the cat fight "details" are classic.

Kate’s first reactions to seeing pictures of Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman in St. Tropez summed up their feelings for each other, an insider says.

“You make me sick!” Kate screamed, supposedly, according to someone.

Hailey was definitely not in the room at the time, but you get the point.

“Kate has no respect for her,” says a source. “That’s putting it mildly.”

Hailey Glassman and Kate Gosselin

We are sure Hailey Glassman does make Kate Gosselin sick. However, both the quotes on this magazine cover are from anonymous sources, not the ladies pictured.

The bad feelings are mutual, as the ditzy stoner - who has known Jon and Kate Gosselin since her plastic surgeon dad performed Kate’s tummy tuck in 2006 - finally landed Jon after three years of flirting, reveals a friend of hers.

"Kate had been putting Jon down for years. She treated him like a child. It always made Hailey feel bad for him. The truth is, Jon was looking for a kind word from someone, some positive attention. Hailey was glad to give it to him.

Hailey echoed this sentiment in an interview with People yesterday, in which she gushed about Jon Gosselin and took some shots at grating Kate.

The pal continued: “She feels that no one deserves what Jon had to put up with, being married to Kate. In fact, she can’t wait to confront Kate and tell her, ‘Jon never loved you!’ That’s how much animosity there is.”

Who sucks more?

A week after being placed under psychiatric hold, Mischa Barton is "still seeking treatment but making improvements," her rep Craig Schneider said.

Schneider would not elaborate, but said that the 23-year-old actress plans to report to work on her CW series, The Beautiful Life, later this month.

Disoriented

A rep for the show, which stars Barton as a struggling supermodel, says shooting is slated to start on July 31. That's two weeks later than planned.

While the show says the delay was not due to Mischa Barton's troubles, but to "problems with the sets," multiple sources say The Beautiful Life producers are working on a Plan B (i.e. a new character) in light of the actress' hospitalization.

The hard-partying Barton was placed under a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold (a.k.a. the Britney Spears hold) at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center July 13.

"She's going through a rough patch," says Benji Kohn, producer of her new film Homecoming. "I hope Mischa is OK. My thoughts and prayers are with her."

Barton is said to be coked up and suicidal. Hopefully not. Here's hoping this once-promising actress gets better and that she stars on her show as planned.

Just a month after Billy Joel announced his split from his 27-year-old third wife Katie Lee Joel, he's already started tickling the ivories of a new woman.

That was a piano reference. Is this thing on?

Billy is currently dating former Young and the Restless star Alex Donnelley, according to the New York Post, having met her at his concert in Washington, D.C.

Since then, she has visited Billy's house in Sag Harbor where they ride around on his motorcycles and boats. A source said, "The two hit it off immediately."

Hey, at 49, Alex Donnelley is in the ballpark of Billy's age (60) and probably shares some of his interests. He might actually be onto something here ...
