We're not sure if this is an upward or lateral move for Hayden Panettiere.

Having recently been linked to British TV presenter Steve Jones (and therefore receiving Pamela Anderson's sloppy seconds), the star is now dating Harry Morton, owner of the Viper Room and Pink Taco restaurant chain - and Lindsay Lohan's ex.

She's certainly not dating in her league. Personally, her choice of men is heading down a similar path as her career, which was looking so promising with Heroes but took a nosedive with ... well, Heroes, along with I Love You, Beth Cooper.

Not even Hayden Panettiere nude could save that epic crap-fest.

In any case, she and Harry Morton were spotted walking her dogs in Malibu yesterday. That's nice. Gotta take advantage of those leisurely summer days before she has to go back to middle school. September's right around the corner.

Murder victim Jasmine Fiore was living in fear of Ryan Jenkins, the man now suspected of killing her, according to the Playboy model's former fiance.

Much like Robert Hasman, her ex-boyfriend who spoke out yesterday, Travis Heinrich has nothing nice to say about the man Jasmine went on to marry.

Heinrich says he saw Ryan Jenkins hit Fiore and that she felt compelled to hide a cell phone behind his back because he would read her texts at night.

Just one month ago, Heinrich says, Fiore confided that she was "in over her head" and didn't know how to escape her relationship with Ryan Jenkins.

Was she scared? "Oh, 100 percent," he says.

Heinrich says he saw Ryan, a millionaire real estate developer, "punch her in the arm with enough force to push her in a pool," leading to his arrest.

Jasmine Fiore and Ryan Alexander Jenkins married in March.

Ryan Jenkins, 32, remains at large and is believed to have evaded a massive manhunt and crossed the border into his native Canada. Mutilated remains of Jasmine Fiore, 28, were found last weekend in a suitcase in Orange County, Calif.

The violent poolside incident between Jenkins and Fiore came after Jenkins "was just drinking all day long," says Heinrich, who broke up with her in 2007.

He says Jenkins also didn't like that he and Fiore were talking - a familiar theme, as police say Jasmine's texts to her ex Hasman may have led to her death.

Meanwhile, the investigation into Fiore's murder led police to San Diego, where they stayed at L'Auberge Del Mar two days before she was found dead.

Michael Jackson will be formally laid to rest on September 3, instead of August 29 (which would have been on the pop icon's 51st birthday) as originally planned.

According to a statement by the Jacksons, the burial will be at Holly Terrace in The Great Mausoleum at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif.

Michael, Prince and Paris Jackson

Only family and close friends will be permitted to enter Forest Lawn. The facility is not public, and is guarded by security to prevent unlawful entry by the public.

Joe Jackson, Michael's father, said the burial would delayed, but the day they wanted it changed to - August 31 - was problematic because of schools re-opening.

The family settled on September 3 instead. No reason for the date being moved from Michael's birthday was given. The superstar's public memorial was July 7.

The investigation into his June 25 death is ongoing. Reports say Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael's personal physician, is likely to face manslaughter charges soon.

Continuing his nationwide boinking tour, Jon Gosselin chatted with a woman at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., earlier this week.

Based on her expression, pants are just minutes away from hitting the floor.

Look out, Hailey Glassman. Your man appears to be back on the prowl.

Who can resist America's most eligible bachelor?

With his girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, nowhere in sight, Jon reportedly made damn sure there was a steady flow of women and booze at his VIP table.

An eyewitness said: "Jon went to Scorpion Bar and Shrine, where he ordered bottles of Grey Goose. He only allowed girls at his table the whole night."

"There were a lot of them. It's a sexy, dark kind of nightclub after 11. It's Asian-themed, so there's a lot of red and couches everywhere. He had a blast."

Pimp daddy Jon Gosselin took a break from his typical jeans-and-T-shirt look, opting for a black sports jacket, button-down shirt and slicked-back hair.

Wonder if this violates his "morals clause" with TLC. He signed autographs but refused to pose for pictures, staying until closing at 1 a.m. After that?

Well, we don't have to tell you what happened.

Following lots of important questions, crucial bikini poses and a dreadful live singing performance by Heidi Montag, Dayana Mendoza will formally cede her crown as the 2009 winner of the Miss Universe pageant is named on Sunday night.

Representing America will be Miss USA Kristen Dalton.

Contrary to popular belief, Carrie Prejean did not win the Miss USA pageant, Kristen Dalton did. Prejean finished second, then was later stripped of her crown as Miss California after flaking on her contract (and being stripped of her top).

Therefore it is Kristen Dalton, 22, hailing from the great state of North Carolina, who will be competing Sunday night at the Atlantis in the Bahamas.

She's a worthy competitor, to say the least ...

Can she become the first American winner of the Miss Universe title since 1997? The odds are slim, if only because more than 90 girls competing, as Donald Trump (who bought the Miss Universe Organization in 1996) mentioned on The Late Show.

Either way, she'll give it a good run. Click to enlarge more photos of the beautiful Miss USA title-holder and Carrie Prejean conqueror, Kristen Dalton ...

Former child star Mark Lester, a longtime friend of Michael Jackson and the godfather of his children, spoke out on the Today show about rumors that he is actually the biological father of one or more of the late King of Pop's offspring.

Specifically, he thinks he might be the father of Paris Jackson, 11.

These rumors were started by Mark Lester himself, and not without at least some merit - the Oliver! star says he once gave Michael Jackson a sperm donation.

A chiropractor and the father of four daughters of his own in London, Mark Lester, 51, said that years ago Jackson sought his sperm because the pop superstar wanted kids but for whatever reason wasn't  "up to" it physically

Michael Jackson was "shy when it came to women," said Lester, who added that it was extremely difficult for his friend to "perform the sexual act."

Even so, Matt Lauer asked, why did he need Mark Lester's sperm?

"That I don't know," said Lester after a long pause. He said he never asked questions about it or donated the sperm under any sort of conditions.

Mark Lester's story about donating sperm to Michael Jackson is beyond strange. But he seems, by and large, to be honest, candid and harboring no ulterior motive.

Another MJ friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, gave sperm to the singer and is rumored to be the kids' father. Klein says he's not, "to the best of my knowledge."

Lester told Lauer that he stepped forward with the story that he may be the father of Paris Jackson because "the story was going to break in any event" in the UK and he wanted to present the case and for his children to hear it from him.

While Mark Lester's ex-wife has subsequently stepped forward to dispute her former spouse's declarations, Michael's mother and the children's legal guardian, Katherine Jackson, says the claims are not in the best interests of the children.

Lester says he is not claiming paternity and has no agenda for speaking out other than that he wants to maintain a relationship with Michael's children.

"Look, let's just go right on the record and say that everyone who wants to get married should be able to get married. Because ... well, why should heterosexuals be the only ones who are miserable?" - David Letterman

Uttering these sage words during a conversation with Donald Trump, David Letterman framed the gay marriage topic in a wholly different way. Forget equality, why should only straight people be subjected to grating spouses?

Surely Jon Gosselin would like to share the suffering.

With the Miss Universe pageant coming up Sunday, Letterman and Trump rehashed some of the drama of Miss USAs past (cough, Carrie Prejean), and Dave wondered if Miss Universe might just replace the United Nations.

Check out a portion of their conversation below ...

We've already wished Hayden Panettiere a happy 20th birthday.

Now it's time to wish Brody Jenner a happy 26th day of birth!

After all, what's not to love about Brody Jenner?

He's hot. He surfs. He's always similing. He used to be best friends with Spencer Pratt but that bromance ended. He dated Nicole Richie, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad before hooking up with Playboy Playmate of the Year 2008 Jayde Nicole.

He is famous for pretty much no reason aside from being Bruce Jenner's son and the women he's dated. The dude is even the stepbrother of Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, further elevating his profile by virtue of his doing nothing.

Here's a 26-photo tribute to today's birthday boy ...

Speidi has taken its traveling PDA show on the road to the Bahamas this week because Heidi Montag is scheduled to "perform" at the Miss Universe 2009 Pageant.

Wherever Heidi goes, Spencer Pratt follows, ready to flash a copy of her recent Playboy spread or dry hump his plastic princess for the cameras. Standard.

Montag is scheduled to “sing” at the pageant Sunday night, but in the least surprising news you'll hear today, the gruesome twosome is already causing drama.

A pageant insider said, “They’re a complete nightmare. Heidi has missed rehearsals,” and Spencer “tried to demand that the hotel pay him to lay by the pool.”

"Spencer demanded the hotel pay him to lay by the pool" after he and Heidi were comped on the cabanas, the insider said. "The Atlantis laughed in his face."

Spencer Humps Heidi

"This report is absolutely untrue. Heidi has been rehearsing in L.A. five days a week for the show, and Spencer hasn't even spoken with the Atlantis."

How dare someone write that Spencer Pratt has an inflated sense of self-worth? Where would they come up with that idea? The nerve of some people.

Sunday may actually be worth watching for the unintentional comedy. If her music videos are any indication, she cannot sing at all - and those aren't even live.

Besides, it can't be a bigger letdown than the "Heidi Montag nude" Playboy shoot.
