The war of words between the controversial and recently dispatched Miss California, Carrie Prejean, and the organization is becoming a game of legal chicken.

No one's showing signs of blinking, either.

The latest drama? The 22-year-old says she is gonna give the Miss California USA officials one last chance to clear her name - or she's gonna sue them.

In a letter Prejean's attorney just fired off to the lawyer representing the Miss California pageant honcho Keith Lewis, the attorney says Lewis defamed Carrie by making the embattled beauty queen seem uncooperative and difficult to deal with.

The letter also accused Lewis of using Carrie to push a gay agenda. He did not address Donald Trump's observation that Carrie treated people like $h!t.

The best part? Carrie's Prejean's lawyer says Keith Lewis had no right to release the 22-year-old's "confidential medical information" - i.e. her boob job.

The letter claims that Carrie has suffered "severe emotional distress" as a result of her treatment by the pageant association and its officials.

If Lewis doesn't recant his comments, Carrie's lawyer promises he will file suit.

The pageant's lawyers have threatened to sue back if she doesn't back off.

Danielle Staub's sordid past was the subject of an amazing fight on Monday's finale. Now it looks like it may continue to haunt her - sex tape style!

Steve Zalewski claims he has videos of The Real Housewives of New Jersey star performing sex acts - on him and on herself - and may sell them.

Danielle's O-Face

Her ex-boyfriend, 27, whom Danielle dated and dumped on the Bravo reality hit last week, says the 46-year-old Staub was a raging nymphomaniac.

"Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught," he says.

"She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms every time we went out — she'd get excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!'"

Danielle Staub and Steve Zalewski had a good run. A sex-filled one.

Other locales in which Steve Zalewski porked Danielle Staub include the back patio of her home, in cars, at a police firing range (!?) and a crowded park.

But the two went through a bad breakup, fueled in large part by Staub's penchant for borrowing large sums of money from him, Zalewski says:

"She tries to look affluent. But she couldn't pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she'd want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewelry!"

Now Steve is turning to the best possible way of recouping some of his cash: distributing a Danielle Staub sex tape - or tapes! to the top bidder.

"I'm definitely weighing my options as far as getting it out there," Zalewski said. "She cost me so much money, why shouldn't I make a few dollars?"

Upon fleeing a horde of teenage fans, Robert Pattinson was clipped by a taxi cab today in Manhattan, but was merely grazed and emerged unscathed.

The British Twilight hunk had a brush with death running away from a throng of fans front of the Strand bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street.

Beauty in Beige

He had been inside filming scenes for his new movie, Remember Me.

Exiting the building, Robert Pattinson tried to duck a crowd of screaming teenage girls waiting for him on the rainy sidewalk and made a break for it, running across the wet street for his trailer. That's when a taxi grazed his hip, sources say.

Pattinson reportedly stood still for a moment, appearing stunned, as a bodyguard yelled at the girls: "You see what you did, you almost killed him!"

Yeah, way to show your appreciation, ladies.

Other witnesses downplayed the incident involving Robert Pattinson.

"The reports are exaggerated," said Vivian Mayer, a spokeswoman for the film's production company. "It was not caused by his fans. Production continues."

Pattinson has been mobbed all over the city, and also the subject of more rumors than we can even keep straight. Earlier today, he was reported to be dating Camilla Belle, a rumored love interest who he has been seen with in NYC.

Others say he is obsessed with Kristen Stewart, his Twilight co-star.

Fans of The Hills wondering why Lauren Conrad didn't say a word when Spencer Pratt called her to apologize on The Hills now have their answer:

She wasn't even on the other line.

Interviewed on The View this morning, LC was asked about the call from Spencer Pratt, in which he said he was sorry for spreading the sex tape rumors about Conrad and asked her to please attend his upcoming wedding to Heidi Montag.

Fake, fake, fake, Lauren Conrad says.

Put on the spot, Conrad hesitated briefly before throwing the show under the bus, but ultimately did so, admitting her contempt for the program that made her a star for the past five seasons, and expressing no regrets about leaving it.

That the show is about as "real" as Heidi Montag's rack is hardly news, but this is the most blatant admission by a cast member yet. Here's the interview, in which Lauren discusses her new novel, L.A. Candy, and Stephanie Pratt's bulimia ...

Celebrities make all sorts of crazy requests when they travel, but if you believe this one, it's an all-timer - even for the crazy celebrity in question here.

A Dublin, Ireland hotel is said to have refused to install a stripper pole for Britney Spears recently, costing them the (dis)pleasure of her patronage.

An Irish newspaper says she canceled her booking after the hotel denied to provide a custom steel pole in her suite for the brief stay in the country.

A source reveals that to maintain her top form, Britney Spears "likes to have the pole on hand." Funny, that's what K-Fed used to say about her ...

Working the Pole

"A request was made to Britney's hotel to see if they could install a pole there during her stay there, but they refused point blank," says a source.

"They're well used to having major celebrities stay there and they're happy to accommodate them, but this was just a step too far for them."

Britney's high-maintenance requests are nothing new. But, fortunately, she won't have to settle for working the pole with Jason Trawick alone.

Another hotel has given in to the singer's request.

Spears will be staying for four nights at the Four Seasons Hotel, which ostensibly acquiesced to her demands for the stripper's steel BFF.

Are Kanye West and Amber Rose, his latest model fling, in the process of patching things up after their breakup was sadly announced June 10?

Looks like they just might be.

According to Perez Hilton, Kanye West and Amber Rose were seen together at Ellen Degeneres' TBS special taping Wednesday night in Chicago.

Seen, as in as a couple. As in, full-on, back together.

Kanye and Amber Rose

Hot couple Kanye West and Amber Rose broke up last week after about three months of public appearances, short hair, bizarre fashion and occasional rants.

“They are no longer a couple,” West's representative confirmed to The New York Post last week, officially ending the relationship between the two.

No official announcement has been made about Amber Rose and Kanye's reconciliation, but Perez says he has this on good authority, so we'll see.

Whitney Port was spotted out in New York City yesterday grabbing Starbucks with two pals, one or both of whom may be new cast members on The City.

Roxy, pictured below on the right, is part of the Big Apple party girl duo, Roxy and Samantha, who were allegedly recruited to spice up the “boring” show.

“They are out of control,” a source told the New York Post of Samantha and Roxy.

“MTV brought in the party girls because the first season was so boring.”

Here's Whitney Port with her new City pals ...

Can Roxy and Samantha bring new excitement to The City?

According to sources, Whitney’s other co-star, socialite Olivia Palermo, just didn’t bring enough drama to the reality show, due to her new gig at Elle.

Having an actual job apparently requires her to behave, leaving little room for drunken screaming matches, panty flashing, stumbling out of clubs, etc.

Here's another look at Roxy and Samantha with Whitney Port (making some of her signature facial expressions, obviously) in the images below:

Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime partner, David Burtka, are planning to have their first child together via a surrogate mother, according to reports.

These reports turned out to be false.

Jessica Simpson Birth

The 2009 Tony Awards host and hilarious How I Met Your Mother star has been with Burtka since 2004. So taking the next step would make sense.

The agency handling the surrogacy was said to be Growing Generations, the same one used by Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker.

That surrogacy made headlines earlier today when a pair of Ohio cops were busted for allegedly plotting a break-in at the surrogate's home.

As far as David and Neil's baby is concerned, Star quoted a source saying they had gone through the surrogacy process and been approved.

Apparently, this was untrue.

“Neil and David were so relieved and excited once they were approved,” says a source reportedly close to the couple. “Neil and David can’t wait to hold their baby; they don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl. They just want a healthy child.”

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the couple just released a statement debunking these rumors. The rep said: “If Star says it, then it must be true! No, we are not currently expecting a baby. Maybe someday ...”

She only split with Peter Andre a little over a month ago, but Katie Price has already moved on to a new boy toy, model Anthony Lowther, the Sun (UK) reports.

The model also known as Jordan was back in the arms of her new hunk for the second consecutive evening last night, dining with the stud in Ibiza Town, Spain.

Giant Boobs Tie the Knot

Katie Price reportedly went on a hedonistic bender the day before and was seen cozying up to Anthony Lowther and flashing her underwear at the club Eden.

The Sun reported she yelled: "I'm over Pete, I can snog whoever I want!"

Apparently sticking to her word of giving Peter Andre a quickie divorce and moving on ASAP, she headed out with Anthony a second time last night, wearing a ridiculously short white dress. But that's par for the course with Jordan.

Neither Anthony Lowther or Katie Price are averse to ditching their clothes at a moment's notice. In his case, he should definitely do so more often. WTF is that shirt?!

Elsewhere, reports emerged today claiming the 31-year-old had threatened to "cut the face" of a female journalist during her wild night out Tuesday.

According to the woman, Katie Price flew into a rage because she thought she worked at the magazine which estranged husband Peter writes a column for.

She claimed: "She flew at me with a manic look in her eyes and spat in my face: 'I'm gonna cut your f*%king face. I swear to f*%king God I'll cut you.'"

Words to live by.

Jordan is shooting a raunchy new calendar (natch) on the Spanish island. Peter Andre, who kicked her ass to the curb in May, is with their kids in Cyprus.

What does the future hold for Katie and ... Anthony?

Police chiefs from two neighboring, eastern Ohio towns are being investigated after allegedly planning a break-in at the home of the surrogate who is carrying the twin daughters of actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

According to a local Ohio TV station, officials are investigating whether officers from the adjoining towns of Martins Ferry and Bridgeport, Oh., masterminded a burglary in order to gather info they could then sell to a celebrity gossip publication.

"I'm 100 percent innocent in this and my department is as well," Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter told TV station WTOV in Steubenville.

Carpenter and the other officer reportedly under investigation, Bridgeport Police Chief Chad Dojack, remain on the job as the probe continues.

The alleged plot is the latest incident in a highly scrutinized pregnancy, which Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick announced at the end of April.

Last month, Sarah Jessica Parker said she is concerned about the health of the surrogate mother because of the intense media attention now focused on her.

Parker also said Matthew Broderick is furious about the situation that has potentially put the woman expecting twins on behalf of the stars in jeopardy.

"Matthew and Sarah Jessica have complete faith in the legal system," his publicist said.

"But because it's a criminal investigation, we will not be making any more comment. What I can say is the entire family looks forward to the healthy delivery of their daughters later on this summer."
