Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani delivered a smokin' hot salsa on Monday evening's Dancing With the Stars. But after the show, The Bachelor beauty found herself, once again, on the hot seat over her dancing background.

"I'm not the only person that has ever come in here with dance experience," Melissa told Access Hollywood when asked if she has a leg up on her foes.

Dancing pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy sparked the debate prior to Week 2 of the hit ABC show, telling TV Guide it was unfair that Rycroft was allowed to compete with her background in ballet and as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader.

When given the opportunity to backtrack on that, Maksim stood strong in his stance: "Let me be that voice of everybody who thinks [it] but won't say it."

"I mean, I can't be expected to compete next to someone that's had a lot of dance training," Maksim's partner, Denise Richards, added.

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani heat up Dancing with the Stars.

After Monday night's show, where Melissa Rycroft turned in her second impressive performance in as many weeks, it seemed more members of the cast were ready to throw fuel on this smoldering Dancing with the Stars fire.

"I'm not going to say anything about it being unfair, but compared to everybody else, there is a huge difference in ability," Julianne Hough said.

Not everyone's a critic, though.

Melissa's dance partner this season, Tony Dovolani, took exception to the comments made by his good friend and competitor, Maksim.

Coolest man alive Harrison Ford and Brothers and Sisters star Calista Flockhart are engaged to be married, sources close to the couple have confirmed.

Ford reportedly surprised Flockhart with an engagement ring on Valentine's Day weekend while the two were away on a family vacation with son Liam.

Calista Flockhart adopted Liam as a single mother when he was a newborn in January 2001. Harrison Ford formally adopted the child later, as well.

This will be Calista's first marriage and the third for Harrison.

He has two sons, Benjamin and Willard, with Mary Marquardt, and two children, Malcolm and Georgia, with Melissa Mathison. Ford also has three grandchildren.

The couple has been together for seven and a half years, many of which have been spent denying wedding rumors. No wedding date has been set yet.

It's been a busy weekend for wedding / engagement news, with Nastaha Bedingfield and Bruce Willis both tying the knot yesterday. Not to each other, of course. They married Matt Robinson and Emma Hemming, respectively.

Natasha Bedingfield is married to Matt Robinson.

The 27-year-old British singer and her businessman beau of two years tied the knot Saturday at the Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu, California.

"Our wedding day was everything we'd hope it would be," Bedingfield said in a statement yesterday. "It was simple, beautiful and natural."

"Free from trappings or formalities, it was more about expressing our love for one another in front of those we hold dearest to us than anything else."

Bedingfield wore a cream silk Vera Wang dress; Matt Robinson donned Armani. The bridal party was a small group of the couple's friends and family.

The couple got engaged in September.

The couple's pals, David and Robin of Go West, organized the ceremony, while featured flowers arranged by another close friend, Rene Gonera.

Said Bedingfield, "We are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together. Love is hard to find, so when you do find it, hang on to it!"

It's the first marriage for Natasha, who's best known for her hits "Unwritten" (The Hills theme), "Single," "Angel," and "Pocket Full of Sunshine."

Congratulations to the happy pair.

It's a strange question, but who pays a sexier homage to Prince?

The Hills' Audrina Patridge paired this Chaser T-shirt with a slim skirt for a video-game launch party in Los Angeles, while Beyonce added a leather jacket and jeans to her vintage Prince t-shirt at pal Kelly Rowland's birthday bash in L.A.

Rapper M.I.A.'s new baby's birth certificate has been revealed, and, as she disputed on her blog, the baby's name is not Ickitt. That's just ridiculous, yo.

Who in their right mind would name their baby that? People need to get their facts straight before making up such nonsense about celebs on gossip sites.

The real name: Ikhyd, obviously. We should've known.

According to the document, M.I.A., a.k.a. Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam, gave her son the official name of Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman. Common spelling.

Also, the baby faced M.I.A's birth date is listed as July 18, 1975, which makes her 33. Her official bio lists her DOB as July 17, 1977. That's just weird.

Then again, it's no Bronx Mowgli.

It's hard being unemployed. Just ask Lindsay Lohan.

The actress, who hasn't appeared in a movie since 2007's I Know Who Killed Me - tells the new issue of Nylon magazine that she's looking for a job.

"It's scary when you realize, 'Oh my God, I'm not working. I have a house to pay for now, and there's been some things I've really wanted to do."

"Like the one movie I've wanted to do for so long is Alice in Wonderland [directed by Tim Burton], but, um, that didn't work out ... it is what it is."

The 22-year-old, who at least got a gig as the face of Fornaria, whatever the hell that is, continued, "[Producers said] 'You're not right for the part, and that's it.' That's how I like to hear it, honestly... I can take it, I'm a big girl."

"Obviously, you don't want me," lamented Lohan, who passes her time getting served with arrest warrants and engaging in huge fights with Samantha Ronson. I don't want to do something that somebody doesn't want me to be involved in."

Just call her the face of the recession, much like Aubrey O'Day.

In her interview with the magazine, Lohan also takes a dig at Britney Spears, who's currently touring the country promoting her No. 1 album, Circus.

"She's marketed as an entertainer, which is what she is. Not necessarily as an artist. And I respect that about her, cause she doesn't want to pretend."

Okay then. Lindsay is also willing to accept work as a model, if anyone is interested: "I love photo shoots… I mean, if I could just sign with IMG and do ad campaigns and model more, I’d do that… that’s fun for me. That’s not work."

Well consider yourself up to date on the thoughts of one of America's unemployed talents. Click to enlarge more Lindsay Lohan pics from Nylon ...

After a week in which LeAnn Rimes was apparently outed for banging Eddie Cibrian while married to Dean Sheremet, a new rumor has surfaced claiming Rimes was merely her husband's beard. To be more specific, Dean is supposedly gay.

So claims his cousin Pebbles, anyway.

Yes, we're serious. A woman identifying herself as Dean Sheremet's "cousin Pebbles" phoned Michigan's Mojo in the Morning show Friday and dished about their marriage - which they admit is currently in a rough patch - and his sexuality.

LeAnn Rimes's rep responded that "There is no known cousin Pebbles."

Shocking revelation there.

Is Dean Sheremet gay? That's the latest rumor in the LeAnn Rimes cheating scandal. She's supposedly been having a steamy affair with actor Eddie Cibrian (right).

On the radio, so-called "Pebbles" declared that Dean Sheremet "doesn't care" about LeAnn Rimes' affair with Northern Lights co-star Eddie Cibrian because he's gay.

The woman added that Dean Sheremet has "been gay since he was probably five.”

Rimes' rep's response, in full: "Although Dean and LeAnn never knew they had a cousin named Pebbles, they are glad to hear she has come out of the woodwork."

"Dean and LeAnn are also interested in connecting with their other long lost family members: Fred, Wilma, Barney and Bamm-Bamm, along possible others."

Ha, well played, rep of Rimes. This still doesn't explain the video of her with Eddie Cibrian on a steamy date, but it's probably safe to say Pebbles is a fraud.

While Britney Spears went clubbing and performed in Montreal, the former Mr. Britney Spears rang in his 31st birthday when the clock struck midnight.

He celebrated by raking in a cool $5,000 for the week to watch his own kids.

We expect more grandiose festivities will go down in his home away from home (Las Vegas) before long. But for now, the FedEx man is officially on daddy duty.

Which basically means having bodyguards watch Sean Preston and Jayden James while he goes bowling with Victoria Prince or hits the links with his ex father-in-law, but hey, that's just how K-Fed rolls. Don't be a hater, bitchez.

K-Fed lets one rip as Jamie Spears looks on.

Here's wishing the fertile aspiring rapper and clothing designer a happy day o' birth. So light up a cigarette, crack open a 40 and click to enlarge lots more pictures of the great Kevin Federline through the years. He is one of a kind:

Not clubbing like the old days, which is fortunate. Or unfortunate, depending on your interpretation of ... well, this, that and the other incident. Classic stuff.

After another show on her Circus tour, Britney Spears stepoed out to taste the Montreal nightlife, making an appearance at Tribe Hyperclub on Friday night ...

Britney Does Montreal

Following a packed house concert in Montreal, Britney Spears made a quick apparence at the superclub in the old port of Montreal. Her dancers joined her for a couple of drinks and 30 minutes later, she head out on her private plane to New York.

Former Bachelor star Andrew Firestone and his wife Ivana Bozilovic have welcomed a baby boy, weighing in at 8 lbs., as of Saturday at 6:48 a.m.

They named their son Adam Brooks after Firestone's father, Brooks.

"Ivana and my son are both doing extremely well," he tells Us Weekly. "Everyone is healthy and happy. I am ecstatic about being a father."

The couple wed this past July in Los Olivos, Calif.

“Standing at the front of the church and watching Ivana walk down the aisle, I just kept thinking I must be the luckiest man alive to spend the rest of my life with this woman," Firestone, 32, said at the time. "She makes me a better person."

Firestone was a vocal critic of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney since the current season of The Bachelor ended in unprecedented fashion on March 2.

He is kind of a d-bag, but we're happy for him and Ivana with this news. Here's hoping Jason and Molly experience this kind of happiness one day.
