Okay, so Mady and Cara Gosselin's 9th birthday party didn't turn into WWIII, as their loser dad predicted it might. The Gosselin parents kept it civil.

"We kept it cordial for the kids," he said outside.

Jon Gosselin had complained earlier in the week that Kate was trying to manipulate their custody agreement to shorten his time with the girls.

Jon scoffed at Kate's alleged altering of their custody arrangement to ensure that he could only be present at their home from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

"I won't allow that," he told ET. "She's basically saying it'd be too stressful to the kids to have both of us here, which is what we originally planned."

J/K

Jon and Kate refrained from murdering one another yesterday.

For all the talk, the king of pimps seemed in good spirits yesterday. Being around the abusive monster elicited more than a few eye-rolls, but it went smoothly.

Relatively, at least.

Jon didn't stay the night, but did put in plenty of quality time, starting when he picked the twins up from the school bus stop and joined them for dinner.

Perhaps he should take the short bus to school himself, though. He showed up toting a cake with his daughter's name, Mady, misspelled as "Maddy."

Ouch.

This was likely an easy mistake by the bakery and nothing more, but remember Jon's classic "go away TLC" sign last week? There weren't exactly a lot of words spelled correctly on that sucker, including his own name.

Way to go, Johnathon Gosselin.

Tori Spelling does NOT weigh 95 pounds. Got that, celebrity gossip readers? Yeesh. The 90210 alum clarified this Thursday, stating she weighs a healthy 107!

So there, Star Magazine!

That reputable publication said Donna Martin collapsed and was rushed to the ER for being exhausted, emaciated and drastically underweight at 95 pounds.

Tori took to Twitter to set the record straight.

"Star Mag... LIES!" she said. "Literally not 1 factual thing in entire article. And, come 2 my house & weigh me Star! I'm 107lbs. if you care about FACTS?!?"

THG NOTE: Everyone knows Star is second only to OK! in made-up headlines, Tori. This is what they do. Acknowledge it and you only feed the beast.

THG NOTE #2: 107 isn't much different than 95, is it?

The tabloid said a "painfully thin" Tori collapsed after an "angry showdown" with husband Dean McDermott, whose ex-wife wrote an incriminating tell-all.

As a result, she was indeed admitted to the hospital twice within 24 hours on September 29, but for an undisclosed stomach ailment, not for lack of food.

Spelling insists to Us Weekly, "I am healthy. I am a busy working mom!" She adds that she has "always gotten" picked on for her slim body size. Really?

"This is my weight," Spelling said. "I don't have an eating disorder. It's hard to be criticized in public, and it's harder on your family than you. You need a thick skin."

"When you have kids and when you have a husband, it's upsetting."

Looks like the haters may have been right all along.

According to reports, Usher recently called the police on his soon-to-be ex-wife, accusing Tameka Foster of sneaking onto his property and keying his car.

Law enforcement sources say that when officers arrived at the baby-faced star's crib, Tameka (who now goes by Tameka Raymond) was nowhere in sight.

Police later interviewed both Tameka and Usher, but decided there was no evidence or witnesses to substantiate Usher's claim that she scratched his ride.

But the drama didn't end there.

Tusher in happier days.

Police sources say Usher called the cops on Tameka again several days later, complaining that Tameka again got onto his property and wouldn't leave.

By the time cops arrived that time, Tameka took off.

Usher filed for divorce back in June ... but it hasn't been finalized just yet. They have two kids, Usher Raymond V, 21 months; and Naviyd, 9 months.

He has since been linked to Grace Miguel.

Tragically, there are countless babies born every day to absentee or unfit parents, and without the proper support system in place to ensure a happy childhood.

Mackynzie Renee Duggar would not be one of those babies.

Gabriel Aubry and Nahla

She's not only the first grandchild of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, of TLC's 18 Kids and Counting fame, but she already has 17 aunts and uncles!

Oh, and she'll be older than her newest aunt or uncle who's on the way, as Jim Bob and Michelle are expecting their 19th child in spring of 2010.

Mackynzie was born at the home of her parents, Joshua (the Duggars' oldest) and his wife Anna, who, according to a friend, "are both so happy."

Josh has been front and center in his wife's first pregnancy – telling her the news that she was pregnant after she was too nervous to look at her own pregnancy test, and reading and singing to his daughter even before she was born.

"I ask Anna what she needs," Josh said.

"I talk to the baby and we involve her in our conversations. When Anna and I are talking to each other, we'll say, 'So, how do you like that, Mackynzie?'"

Although Mackynzie is his first child, Josh knows all about raising babies.

He helped out with younger siblings Jana and John-David, 19; Jill, 18; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 15; Joseph, 14; Josiah, 13; Joy-Anna, 11; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10; Jason, 9; James, 8; Justin, 6; Jackson, 5; Johanna, 3; Jennifer, 2 and Jordyn-Grace, 1.

The newest Duggar's name came, you may have noticed, is a departure from the family tradition of starting them all with J. But the couple is not necessarily committing at this time to "M" being the letter to begin all their children's names.

Mackynzie Duggar's birth will be featured on TLC's 18 Kids and Counting special, cleverly titled First Grandduggar, airing Tuesday, October 13 at 9 p.m.

Talk about a refreshing break from Jon Gosselin news, right?

After David Letterman announced last Thursday that he had been involved in sexual affairs with female staff members, most fans were surprised by his conduct, but nevertheless appreciative of his decision to go public.

Letterman said he had sex with unnamed staffers. One of them, Stephanie Birkitt, was dating Robert Halderman, who stands accused of blackmailing Dave over it.

But Letterman's admission of the sex and extortion scandal was not enough for Regina Lasko, the Late Show host’s wife of six months and partner of two decades.

Lasko, who is also the father of Letterman's son Harry, born in 2004, demanded he apologize a second time on his program Monday, according to news reports.

Dave spoke directly about how "incredibly hurt" Regina was by his behavior while insisted that his affairs "are in the past" and that he committed to fixing this.

Letterman was clearly chastened and humbled by that prospect.

"Let me tell you folks, I got my work cut out for me," he said.

Regina Lasko: David Letterman's Wife

Can David Letterman salvage his marriage to Regina Lasko?

Dave was praised again for this display of emotion, despite the antics preceding it. But sources say the on-air apology “wasn’t something Dave wanted to do.”

“He wanted the whole thing to blow over,” said a source. “But [Regina Lasko] told him he better make an apology to let everyone know how sorry he was."

The source adds that Regina made Dave go over what he was going to say, and allowed Letterman to make “one or two jokes that weren’t at her expense.”

However it seems Dave didn’t do well enough: “Regina felt like Dave’s humorous take on the apology lessened the sincerity of it, and she’s not happy."

His work is cut out for him, indeed.

Is Twitter going all Heroes on us?

In other words, we're wondering if it has reached the point where it can no longer improve, and will suffer a slow decline occasionally punctuated by cheap stunts to remain relevant (see Hayden Panettiere girl-on-girl scene).

The proverbial jumping of the shark, if you will.

Twitter may be the perfect way to find out what your favorite celebrities - or even Spencer Pratt, for that matter - are eating, doing or thinking RIGHT NOW.

But for stars, is all this "social networking" more trouble than it's worth?

Hung star Jane Adams was caught dining-and-dashing at an L.A. restaurant recently, thanks to her stilted waiter's lightning-quick Twitter update. Bam!

Lindsay Lohan makes a Tweeting mockery of herself almost daily. The Tila Tequilas and Adrianne Currys of the world practically beg for attention on it.

  • So Peaceful
  • El Presidente

The Twitterverse knows few bounds. Is that a good thing?

Heck, even the President of the United States was done in by a Twittering reporter, who circulated his off-camera remark that Kanye West is a jackass.

Then yesterday, Miley Cyrus deleted her Twitter page for new beau Liam Hemsworth, a move somewhat emblematic of the fact that it's so overexposed.

What's more, the Federal Trade Commission recently outlined new rules for bloggers (celebrities and commoners alike) to abide by, including having to publicly state if someone's paying you to endorse a product on a blog or social network.

Fortunately for Speidi, that brand is Speidi. But many other celebrities are endorsing other products left and right. How this plays out will be interesting.

Even if they don't follow Miley's lead, some stars should at least tone down the Tweeting a little. After all, those who do not Twitter - Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Zac Efron, etc. - may end up having more staying power.

Gotta leave 'em wanting more, after all.

The celebrity gossip world's collective jaw pretty much hit the floor when it learned that reality star Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom were dating.

When they got married after knowing each other for only 32 days, that was even more out of left field. And quite possibly not even legally binding.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian Together

But still, insane! No one could believe what they were seeing.

We're just talking about ourselves here. So you can imagine Lara Manoukian - Lamar’s supposed girlfriend of seven years - was really shocked!

“My heart is destroyed,” Lara later told a friend, according to Star.

“I treated that fool like a king... from cooking to cleaning his place, anything you can think of, I’ve done for that man.... This dude has lost his mind!”

Lara Manoukian may not have really dated Lamar Odom, and may not even be a real person. But when she says "dude has lost his mind," you can't argue with her there!

While Lara’s heart is broken, her family isn’t shedding any tears over Khloé and Lamar’s September nuptials (follow the link for heartwarming wedding photos).

Her stepfather, Harry Diramarian, tells Star that the L.A. Lakers forward cheated on his stepdaughter repeatedly - long before Khloe Kardashian was in the mix.

"She feels betrayed because they were still a couple when Khloé entered the picture. They were breaking up and getting back together for seven years," he said.

"Lamar would cheat on her with other women.”

Lamar has two kids with ex Liza Morales, 10-year-old daughter Destiny and 7-year-old son Lamar, Jr. He has also been linked to Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson.

Motherhood suits Jennifer Hudson, the American Idol star and Oscar-winner says.

"I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy," says the Chicago native. "Who better to devote my time to than my own child?"

Jennifer gave birth to her first child, David – named after her fiancé, David Otunga – on August 10. From lullabies to bottle-feedings, she's been doing it all.

On keeping her pregnancy private: "David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant. I didn’t have any morning sickness, no cravings. I didn’t show until I was seven months so that made it easy."

On recovering from her c-section: "Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterward but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others."

"By that night after I had the baby, I'm like, 'Look, I can’t sit in this bed anymore."

On the personality of the younger David Otunga: "He has a lot of personality, like David. He’s a good sleeper. His favorite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you – he just cracks up like it’s the funniest thing."

"With a pacifier, it’s like he knows, ‘Ain’t nothing come out of here. No, I don’t want that. Where’s the real deal?’ His best friend is that bottle."

On her little guy's future career: "His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to go to school, get an education. My mom always said, 'Whatever you want to do, I'll support you as long as you’re happy.' So I will do the same."

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are reunited and it feels so good.

"I am happy in a relationship," he said Thursday on Good Day Philadelphia. "I was single for a minute there, and then we've kind of patched things up."

"She's a very smart girl," he gushed. "She's far smarter than I."

You probably never heard him say that about Jessica Simpson.

Hottest couple ever? Nick and Vanessa are vying for that title.

After nearly three years of dating, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo amicably split in June but remained "good friends." That phase was short-lived.

By late August, they were spotted kissing, making out and dancing together at Los Angeles bar Dime. The PDA parade only got better from there.

Lachey said soon after that rumored hookup that "We're trying to figure things out. I don't pretend to know what the future holds for us, but everything's good now. Vanessa's a good girl, and I care about her a lot."

Audrina Patridge is quite happy and single, thankyouverymuch.

But still, she can’t sit back and watch man-eater Kristin Cavallari steal her on-off boyfriend, Justin Brescia, a.k.a. Justin Bobby, without some bitterness.

On the season premiere of The Hills, new star Kristin flirted with Justin-Bobby, telling off Audrina and pals. Last week, she and J-B hooked up for real.

Audrina believes that Justin and Kristin are “just trying to make a good show, start drama, and trying to hype it up and I understand that,” she said.

“But at the same time, have a heart.”

"It’s hard to sit back and try to film with her and to try to be friends with her when someone is bashing you like that," Audrina Patridge says of Kristin.

Audrina, who is planning on doing her own reality show with Mark Burnett in December, is also turning a new page on the romantic front, leaving both Justin-Bobby and her most recent fling, BMX rider, Corey Bohan, in the dust.

“Corey and I are not together, we actually broke up a few weeks ago,” she said. “I couldn’t give 110 percent like he wanted, so I decided to break it off.”

As for Justin and Kristin's fake relationship, Audrina says she's come to terms with it. We don't expect her to be invited to the fake wedding, though.

Whose side are you on?
