Eric Dane's lawyer wants to differentiate between a "sex tape" and a "nude tape." But whatever you want to call it, he's willing to sue you for exploiting it.

A video showing the Grey's Anatomy star, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche nude and in compromising positions is ancient history, according to Marty Singer, an attorney for the married couple.

Singer says using the tape for commercial purposes will mean a big lawsuit.

In a statement released Monday shortly after the Eric Dane tape circulated, the actor's lawyer said of the (non) sex video being discussed and shown online:

"This is simply a private, consensual moment involving a married couple, shot several years ago, which was never intended to be seen by the public."

The statement continues:

"Although the participants are nude, the tape is not a sex tape. It is a private tape made for my clients' personal use, and nobody has the right to exploit it."

Singer said that "if anyone exploits the tape, they will be violating my clients' rights and will be exposed to significant liability." We don't doubt it one bit.

The attorney reiterated that the Eric Dane tape is a "private, confidential tape," and added that "from what I've seen, it's a naked tape, not a sex tape."

The third woman in the video is Kari Ann Peniche, who in 2002 was crowned Miss Teen USA but was later stripped of the title after posing for Playboy.

Kari Ann Peniche, who was once engaged to Aaron Carter and appeared on Celebrity Rehab for sex addiction, is alleged to be involved in a sex-for-hire business.

We will have more on that aspect of the Eric Dane tape later.

Michael Jackson will be laid to rest in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles at 10 a.m. on August 29 on what would have been the King of Pop's 51st birthday.

So says his father, Joe Jackson.

Michael Jackson, Children

The elder Jackson, who never misses an opportunity to cash in pay tribute to his late son, indicated that the burial plans were made final in the past few days.

Joe, who now resides in Las Vegas, has spoken out on several occasions since Michael's death, including a really odd conversation with Larry King and another interview during which he claimed Omer Bhatti was his grandson.

Jackson said he is supportive of the Los Angeles Police Department probe into his son's June 25 death so far - but also said that cops and the DEA may end up making Dr. Conrad Murray "the fall guy for a whole lot of people."

He did not elaborate.

Joe Jackson says Michael will be buried August 29.

Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson's personal doctor and with him the day he died. Murray's lawyer has confirmed the doctor is being investigated for administering the anesthetic Propofol and possibly other drugs. He denies wrongdoing.

Joe Jackson, who lives apart from the singer's mom, Katherine Jackson, says she's taken Michael's death particularly hard, and frequently bursts out in tears.

Having had a contentious relationship with his son, Joe said he tried to see his son months before his death, but "security guards wouldn't let me get to him."

"You gotta be two of the f*%king hottest girls this side of Mulholland." - Eric Dane

If you couldn't tell from the headline, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA / Playboy model Kari Ann Peniche apparently engaged in a threesome and filmed a sex tape together.

A lot of drugs were apparently involved.

With every celebrity sex tape, one wonders just what the hell the participants were possibly thinking. In this case, it's pretty clear: they weren't.

Our analysis: After ingesting a boatload of mind-altering drugs, a nude Eric Dane nailed his wife Rebecca Gayheart and beauty-queen-turned-Hollywood-madam Kari Ann Peniche. While debating the best porn star names of course.

Eric Dane, Kari Ann Peniche

Eric Dane and Kari Ann Peniche take a sex tape break.

In the video, a 12-minute romp, the inebriated threesome lounges nude in the Studio City apartment of Kari Ann, passing around the camera and, for giggles, discussing what their names would be if they joined the adult film industry.

Dane settles on "Tuff Hedemen" (his favorite bull rider). Soon they move to the bathroom where the ladies disrobe and Eric takes over the camera.

In truth, it's not very exciting. It is, however, very real and they are very naked.

Follow the jump for some still photos from the Eric Dane sex tape ...

Rumors continue to emerge that former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton will be marrying longtime beau Marc Mezvinsky later this month on Martha's Vineyard.

Like clockwork, the Clinton camp continues to deny all such rumors.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

Chelsea Clinton, 29, and Marc Mezvinsky, 31, an investment banker, are said to be planning a wedding on the exclusive Massachusetts island. The summer home of longtime family friends Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen is a possible venue.

Clinton reps have denied the reports, noting that the couple are not even engaged. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton weighed in last month to Fox News:

"There is no truth to [the rumors]. I keep reading it, and we keep saying, 'It's not true, it's not true.' But for some reason it doesn't go away."

Former President Bill Clinton's spokesman, Matt McKenna, said last week: "As we have said repeatedly, these rumors are completely false."

And yet ... the Washington Post reports:

  • Marc Mezvinsky was spotted shopping for rings.
  • Chelsea Clinton has been looking at invitations.
  • A prominent Washington couple let it slip that they've been invited to Chelsea's wedding this month - then clammed up.

All this could add up to something ... or nothing.

If Chelsea wanted to pull off a wedding without guests, vendors and friends being hounded by reporters, what would she say? Nobody say a word or else?

One other tidbit: President Barack Obama and his family are renting a place on the Vineyard just down the road from the Danson-Steenburgen place. That means no paparazzi helicopters hovering overhead. When? The last week of August.

New bikini, same cuteness.

Britney Spears opted for green instead of the pink bikini she wore the previous day, but she was back for a second round of poolside fun today - this time with the kids!

Check out the new haircuts on Jayden James and Sean Preston!

Shortening the kids' hair is always a good way to help them beat the summer heat. Plus, a buzz cut looks better on the kiddies than on Britney herself ...

Britney Spears' Children

Britney Spears smiles at Jayden James. Wonder if she remembers his name.

They may be foul-mouthed brats, and likely scarred for life after the events of early 2008, but SP and JJ sure are cute, and it's great to see Britney with them.

Victoria Prince isn't ready for full-time mom duty just yet.

All in all, a good time was enjoyed. Click to enlarge more photos of Britney in a bikini, with Sean Preston and Jayden James, by the pool in Los Angeles ...

An unemployed father at the age of 19, Levi Johnston has bills to pay and no way to pay them. Except cashing in on his 15 minutes in every conceivable way.

To that end, following a statement on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live that he'd consider posing nude for the right price, Levi has received such an offer.

Unzipped magazine wants the baby daddy of Bristol Palin and newfound wannabe media darling to take it all off. Says the publication's executive editor:

“As the top-selling nude men’s magazine, Levi Johnston will receive a level of quality in his shoot with Unzipped that can’t be found anywhere else.”

Reassuring, right?

Levi Johnston will do anything for a paycheck, including be Kathy Griffin's date to the Teen Choice Awards. Could posing nude be next on his career agenda?

“Likewise, as evidenced by our May 2009 cover story featuring a nude Beau Breedlove discussing his affair with Portland, Oregon mayor Sam Adams, we also offer models a unique opportunity to share their side of the story."

"This could clearly be a win-win for all involved.”

Truer words have rarely been spoken.

There are no details on the amount of pay Levi Johnston would receive should he accept the offer, but here's hoping he does. Just so people can wave the photos at Sarah Palin speaking engagements from now until the end of time.

Jessica Simpson may seem like a great replacement for departed American Idol judge Paula Abdul in that both are fun, harmless and say really inane things.

Not to mention, as a no-talent hack herself, Jessica might offer the panel unique insight in the early auditions as wannabes are nixed from a crowded field.

But alas, for all six of you who might have gotten your hopes up, but the casting coup, which was probably started by Jessica's dad/pimp Joe, is not to be.

J-Simps' rep Cindi Berger shot down reports that the alleged singer turned sad sack divorcee will be filling the fourth seat at the American Idol judges' table.

The reports are "not true at all," Berger said.

Crazy Paula

Rumors began a-swirlin' this morning when the New York Post said Joe Simpson was pushing for Jessica to replace Paula alongside Simon, Randy and Kara.

But in case you didn't believe the official denial from Jess' rep, Joe took to (what else) his official Twitter this morning to debunk the Post story for good.

"So, I am in thailand... But, of course, the post says I am in town trying to get ;ess to be the replacement for paula abdul... Do the lies ever stop????"

Not sure who ;ess is, but no, the lies definitely do not stop.

As for Abdul, she's not joining Dancing With the Stars, Ugly Betty or even So You Think You Can Dance, despite rumors tying her to all of the above.

Think she might still consider coming back to Idol for the right price?

As police continue to investigate Dr. Conrad Murray, it appears more likely by the day that Michael Jackson's personal physician will end up in court, the defendant in what could be a negligence, manslaughter or even murder trial.

His defense, some have posited, may rest on his ability to paint Jackson as an addict who was essentially to blame for his own death. Is this a fair argument?

Michael Jackson Entertainment Weekly Cover

Criminally speaking, Dr. Conrad Murray may be held liable in some capacity for the June 25 demise of the star when the ongoing police investigation ends.

But what if he hadn't died? Consider the following scenario:

Jackson is revived in the ambulance or at the hospital, but a whirlwind of media coverage still surrounds him. Police ask the same questions ... only he lives.

Was MJ doctor shopping? Did he pay doctors cash in exchange for questionable practices? Did he use aliases to fill prescriptions? The list goes on and on.

How significant role did Michael Jackson (1958-2009) play in his own death, and how should the answer to that impact the criminal investigation of others?

Ethically, and likely legally, Dr. Conrad Murray should know better than to administer a drug like Propofol to Michael Jackson outside a hospital (whether he tried to cover up what happened by waiting five hours to call 911 is another topic).

So, we shouldn't blame the victim, right? But what if the victim is not blameless? What if the victim used his vast power, wealth and charm to get what he wanted? Should someone, even a doctor, really be held accountable for placating him?

Michael Jackson was, after all, a grown man, albeit one exhibiting marginal decision-making abilities in the last years of his life. Accounts of him pleading for drugs are abundant. Was he destined for a disaster of his own creation?

If you're defending Dr. Conrad Murray in a murder trial, you might try to argue that.

But on the flip side, was Jackson still the victim in all of this - not just because he died June 25, but all along, from the mental disorder of drug addiction?

It's a question not easily answered. What do you think? Is Michael responsible?

Madonna and her kids - Lourdes Leon, David Banda, Mercy James and Jesus Luz - took a mini-vacation in Italy in celebration of her 51st birthday yesterday.

Jesus Luz may be Madonna's boyfriend, but at 23, he is closer in age to the pop star's children than to her, so he falls in that category. Cute family photo:

Madonna, Jesus Luz, Kids

Jesus Luz plays dad to Madonna's growing brood.

The Material Mom celebrated her birthday at the Splendido Hotel in Portofino, Italy, sharing breakfast and alone time with Jesus. What a nice family vacation.

In previous Madonna lover news, Guy Ritchie has recently gone public with Mellany Gandara, while Alex Rodriguez is hitting home runs with Kate Hudson.

Looks like Kate Gosselin is not the only one who's had enough of Jon.

Reportedly, TLC is also extremely unhappy with its 32-year-old reality TV star, a result of the newly-single, endorsement-seeking bachelor's recent parading around with Ed Hardy shirts, earrings and a string of mediocre girlfriends.

Jon Plus 4

That unhappiness has prompted the network to blur any brand logos that Jon wears on the show. Executives have made this an official policy.

"TLC feels like they are being used by Jon," said a source close to the situation. "They want to send him a direct message, loud and clear."

"The relationship between Jon and the network has become very strained."

Jon is actively shopping for business deals and has met with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier several times, as has his girlfriend Hailey Glassman.

Wearing the company's shirts on TV seemed like a great way to gain free publicity for their rumored partnership, but TLC but a blurry kibosh on that.

TLC doesn't want Jon shilling for lame Ed Hardy shirts on its watch.

As a result, Jon feels TLC is taking Kate Gosselin's side in their divorce, allowing her to do a recent PR tour but canceling an interview he had with E! News.

There has been talk by some execs at TLC about following Kate's lead and divorcing Jon. Kate Plus Eight Minus Douchebag? Jon Minus Nine? Stay tuned.

Controversy surrounding the embattled pair simply won't abate. Last week, Jon dealt with police showing up at his house after he refused to let Kate in.

She called 911 after becoming upset Jon was allowing Stephanie Santoro - a woman he is also rumored to be nailing - to babysit their adorable brood.
