Not all celebrity look-alikes are created equal.

Admittedly, this installment is fueled largely by similar hairstyles among the two stars - but sometimes, as we saw with this Rihanna lookalike, that's all you need.

A John Mayer Picture

THG reader jogirl20099 sent in this photo comparison of John Mayer and Penn Badgley. Okay, it's a younger John Mayer and a much younger Penn Badgley.

Still, it's good enough for our purposes (contact us to submit your own)!

What do you think, readers? Does the douchebag singer look like the Gossip Girl actor before he cut his hair and began dating Blake Lively? Vote below!

Do you see a John Mayer-Penn Badgley resemblance?

Melissa Rycroft is a pro at staying strong in the face of adversity.

On the most recent season of The Bachelor, she received the final rose from Jason Mesnick, only to be dumped on national TV in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney.

She went on to appear on Dancing with the Stars, where she battled through a hairline fracture in her ribs to make the final three and dance on the season finale.

Here's hoping she can bounce back similarly from swine flu.

“Poor Melissa is really, really sick,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online. “She was due to do a photo shoot today but had to cancel at the last minute."

At least Melissa Rycroft has Tye Strickland to care for her. Unless he's holed up in the guest room with surgical mask on to prevent getting the dreaded H1N1 himself.

“It’s so unlike Melissa, as she’s usually such a pro, so you know she has to be on death’s door, figuratively speaking.” Good to know she's not there literally. Phew.

Melissa Rycroft has been sick for several days now, Twittering Monday: “Why did I wake up feeling like I got hit by a Mack truck last night?? Ughh... stupid flu...”

Hopefully, her insurance agent fiance, Tye Strickland, who she got engaged to a few months ago and plans to marry December 12, can nurse her back to health!

Get well soon, Melissa!

It's a style showdown featuring a gorgeous young actress and one of those krazy Kardashians who appears on the cover of every magazine for whatever reason.

Bad business decisions are made all the time, but honestly, signing up Lindsay Lohan as a fashion consultant might go down as one of the all-time worst.

What did they think you were getting? If a company needed an experienced douchebag consultant, Jon Gosselin is available. That would make sense.

Lindsay and fashion, though? Where's the connection there?

The Paris fashion world never expected to see nipple slips pasties on the runway. Nor did Lindsay Lohan, the creative consultant behind the disaster.

Yeah, right.

WTF

WTF! Her expression kind of says it all. [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

The alleged actress was skewered by the fashion press for the first Ungaro collection she served as artistic advisor on. She blamed the fiasco on “coming in so late and having not that much time to do a whole collection.”

As for the much-maligned sequined pasties flashed by the models when they opened up their jackets and blouses, Lindsay Lohan told People at a Victoria’s Secret Velvet launch party in New York that she was as shocked as the audience.

“I wasn’t aware of the nipple tassels on the girls until they were walking out,” she says “I am going back to Paris for the next collection. I am learning.”

So, she was unaware, even though her job is to be a fashion consultant and the models were wearing the line's fashion. Congrats on a job well done!

Filippa Hamilton is hot.

She is also 5-foot-10 and a relatively healthy 120-pounds.

But the French model was recently altered dramatically for a Japanese print ad, and claims she was fired by Ralph Lauren because they thought she was too fat.

"They fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore," Filippa Hamilton said in an interview with the New York Daily News.

Hamilton said of the Ralph Lauren Blue Label ad, which features a funhouse mirror-like slimming of her hips: "I was shocked to see that super skinny girl with my face; it's very sad, I think, that Ralph Lauren could do something like that."

She's got a point. Check out the hilarious comparison:

  • Photoshopped Filippa Hamilton

Filippa Hamilton looks great on the left. The right? Well ...

The company, in response, said the controversially altered picture "was mistakenly released and used in a department store in Japan and was not the approved image which ran in the U.S. We take full responsibility."

"This error has absolutely no connection to our relationship with Filippa Hamilton."

They confirmed Hamilton was released "as a result of her inability to meet the obligations under her contract with us." Ah, the ol' catch-all breach of contract.

Hamilton, who had modeled for the designer since 2002, was unmoved and left little room for interpretation when she said in reply: "[Ralph Lauren] fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn't fit in their clothes anymore."

"I think they owe American women an apology, a big apology; I'm very proud of what I look like, and I think a role model should look healthy."

What do you think? Is Filippa too fat?

Former Saturday Night Live star Tracy Morgan has gone on to star as himself Tracy Jordan, uttering nonsensical and hilarious 30 Rock quotes Thursdays on NBC.

(Watch the season premiere tonight!)

Naturally, the wild one was recently given a book deal - we really need to get him on Twitter somehow - and naturally he used it to go off on former SNL cohorts.

Hey, we said he was crazy.

Whilst recording the audio version of his forthcoming memoir, I Am the New Black, Tracy puts the brutal in brutal honesty by bashing Chris Kattan and Cheri Oteri.

"I can remember first coming on Saturday Night Live and feeling like I was on the absolute bottom of the totem pole," the incomparable actor reflects.

"I could remember when people like Cheri Oteri and Chris Kattan would probably look down upon me. I could remember those two, especially those two, people treating me like I was the invisible guy. Now look where they at."

"Cheri Oteri, she can't even get arrested. Where's Chris Kattan now?"

Ahem, he's marrying and divorcing Sunshine Tutt. But we see Tracy's point.

"They're never gonna host Saturday Night Live," he continued. "And that's not even mean, but that's what happened to me over there. They never treated me well."

"There were people that treated me beautifully, like Will Ferrell and Colin Quinn and Molly Shannon. But Cheri Oteri and Chris Kattan, I never cared for. F--k 'em."

Fortunately, Tracy spared his former SNL and current 30 Rock boss Tina Fey from his unexpected and pointless verbal rampage. Even he isn't that crazy.

Larry Birkhead already has one special lady in his life.

Now he's reportedly going on reality TV to find another.

The ex-boyfriend of the late Anna Nicole Smith and father to her daughter Dannielynn is in talks to appear on Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker, reports say.

"We are actually working, maybe, with Larry Birkhead," the show's star Patti Stanger herself said at the Fox Reality Channel Really Awards in Los Angeles.

"We are looking [into] that."

SIDE NOTE: Larry Birkhead is a millionaire?

Stanger, who just got engaged to Andy Friedman, says she already has history with Danniellyn's mom, who she set up with billionaire J. Howard Marshall.

Yup, the one whose son she allegedly wanted to murder.

"I knew Anna Nicole," Stanger said, wanting to help out her baby daddy now. "I fixed her up back in the day and I want that child to have a great mom."

But the professional love coach doesn't think Birkhead's mate should be a star. Instead, she would match him with an "all American, down to earth girl."

Hopefully, a nice girl that likes shaggy hair, long walks on the beach and posing for celebrity gossip magazine photo shoots with Dannielynn a lot.

Patti adds that the future Mrs. Larry Birkhead should be "a nurse or a teacher that’s not into all of this who would be a good stay-at-home mother."

Tell us, ladies, would you date Larry Birkhead?

Soulja Boy is either a freaking moron or he has a death wish.

In what could quite possibly be the dumbest move of all time, which is saying a lot for a rich star, the rapper wants to set the record straight: He is rich.

Amanda Bynes Twit Pic

So much so, he keeps tens of thousands of dollars in cash in a shoe box at home. He made this abundantly clear with this video. So there, all U h8rs!

Ranting and posting like a madman on Twitter, he takes issue with celeb gossip reports that his landlord accused him of owing $10,000 in unpaid bills.

Dude was already robbed last December. Funny how that works. Whatever the reason, though, Soulja Boy feels the need to Tell Em off in this way.

Soulja Boy is as smart as the spelling of his name would indicate.

Arrogant prick that he is, SB whips out wad after wad of $100 bills while one of his friends says: "wow .... wow ... wow." Yup, his friends are complete a$$holes too.

He also Twittered: "For every blog site who posted that bullsh*t, F**K YOU."

Then followed it with: "I know all you lame ass haters is Thirsty to see my downfall. But keep fucking dreaming go find another rapper to hate cuz I GOT THIS SH*T"

Hopefully, he uses one of those wads of $100s on a state-of-the-art security system, because we're guessing he's going to need it. Way to keep a low profile, idiot.

What would supposed Soulja Boy fiancee Rosa Acosta say?

Before she picked up a celebrity gossip magazine and read all about it, Eddie Cibrian's affair with LeAnn Rimes would have been news to Brandi Glanville.

Cibrian's wife says she found out he was cheating on her through the media, according to new documents filed in their divorce case, which is underway.

Glanville, a model whose legal name is Brandi Cibrian, "first learned of his infidelity in March 2009" and never names the other woman in her filing.

It just so happens that Us posted a video of Eddie making out with LeAnn Rimes at a restaurant that same month, so there is little doubt who it is.

Eddie Cibrian, Brandi Glanville

Eddie and Brandi Cibrian in happier times.

Brandi claims Eddie, with whom she has two young sons, Mason and Jake, said he promised to stop cheating and that they even sought marital counseling.

But, by July, she found out the affair with LeAnn Rimes was still in full blossom ... again courtesy of celeb gossip media. Not being too discreet there, Ed.

Brandi also claims Eddie was unfaithful to her with at least one other woman during their marriage. That would be Scheana Marine Jancan, we believe.

Eddie and LeAnn are still together now, but keeping things on the DL.

The moral of the story: If you thought celebrity gossip never contributed to anything of value ... you're right. But he was bound to get caught sometime.

If there's one thing Megan Fox knows how to do, it's make asinine comments in interviews. But if there's a second thing, it's getting half-naked for magazines!

Or for movies, or for SNL hosting duties, or for David Silver, etc., etc.

That said, it was only a matter of time until she got paid to disrobe for a lingerie campaign. Megan will replace Victoria Beckham as the body face of Armani.

Yeah. Megan Fox photos + 2010 Emporio Armani Underwear = yum.

Victoria's husband, David Beckham, was booted on the men's side in favor of Cristiano Ronaldo. Safe to say they're at least trading laterally if not up!

  • Megan Fox Elle Pic
  • Victoria Beckham Underwear Photo

Megan Fox is in, Victoria Beckham is out at Armani. We'll take it.

Fox will also star in a new Armani Jeans campaign, though pictures of Megan in jeans will likely inspire less saliva. And online searches for Megan Fox nude.

The 23-year-old has already posed for the underwear shoot, with black and white photos set to launch in both print ad and billboard form early next year.

Expect a lot of car accidents in January.

Who would you rather ...
