What happens when edgy celebrity fashion meets swimsuit photos?

That's actually unclear, as we're fairly certain that question has never before been asked. But we post the photos at The Hollywood Gossip, that's for sure!

V Magazine enlisted Mario Testino to shoot six supermodels for its first-ever swimsuit issue. Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen were among those to suit up.

In her new memoir, Resilience, Elizabeth Edwards reveals she vomited in a bathroom after learning of the affair between her husband, former U.S. Senator and presidential hopeful John Edwards, and weird videographer Rielle Hunter.

When she heard, "I cried and screamed, I went to the bathroom and threw up," wrote Elizabeth Edwards, 59, who is battling terminal breast cancer.

She says that John Edwards admitted to having an affair with Rielle Hunter just days after declaring his run for president in late 2006 - or nearly a year before the National Enquirer broke the story in December 2007.

Elizabeth does note that when John initially admitted the affair, he "left most of the truth out." Like the part about possibly fathering her kid, maybe?

To protect her and their three children from scrutiny, Elizabeth says she urged John to quit the race, eventually won by Barack Obama. He did not.

In August 2008, the Enquirer again reported he was the father of Rielle Hunter's daughter, but this time busted him visiting her secretly at an L.A. hotel.

John was pretty much forced to admit that he hit that after that incident, though he still denies paternity. Elizabeth does not address this in the book.

Elizabeth also takes aim at Rielle, whom she never identifies by name, in writing that Hunter initially seduced her husband outside a fancy New York hotel by giving him the time-honored compliment, "You are so hot."

What politician could say no to that?

She says Hunter - who was paid $114,000 from his political action committee to produce web documentaries - was nothing more than a sad groupie.

While her own life may be tragic, Elizabeth says, Hunter's is "pathetic."

Although she long struggled to cope with her husband's affair, Elizabeth suggests she forgives John - who she was rumored to have kicked out of the house - and says that they are now on much better terms.

"I lie in bed, circles under my eyes, my sparse hair sticking in too many directions, and [John] looks at me as if I am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen," the accomplished attorney reflects. It matters."

Somehow we doubt this will be a one-time thing.

Embattled mother of newborn octuplets and six other young children Nadya Suleman was visited Wednesday by Orange County Social Services and police detectives.

Whack Job

According to the L.A. Times, a complaint was filed by one of Suleman's kids' school teachers after the teacher observed what appeared to be bite marks on him.

The bitten offspring is three-year old Aidan.

The website also claimed Aidan showed up to school with a black eye, but Nadya Suleman downplayed his injury, saying: “He’s autistic, he bumps into things.”

La Habra Police Lt. Tom Dutton confirmed the visit in a statement:

“On Wednesday, April 29, La Habra Police personnel were requested to assist Orange County Social Services involving a matter pertaining to the Sulemans. As is customary, the department routinely assists other agencies, when so requested.”

DRAIN ON SOCIETY: Another day, another child endangerment claim for Octomom.

Suleman's attorney, Jeff Czech, said he was not sure whether the social services officials took any action and suspects they were called by the boy's teacher.

The caretaker of 14 - and possibly a new pet soon - had no comment.

This incident is already the fourth formal complaint levied against Nadya Suleman, 34, for possible child neglect and endangerment this year.

The first three complaints filed against Octomom took place in March by attorney Gloria Allred on behalf of the organization Angels in Waiting.

Allred took action after Nadya Suleman fired the non-profit organization's nurses, said she didn't need their help and accused them of being spies.

After discovering this new batch of Marisa Miller bikini pictures, we had two thoughts:

  • Tomorrow is May 1. Why are these bikini pics from the 2009 Wurth calendar only coming out now? Perhaps because no one knows what Wurth is?
  • We are spending way too much time analyzing trivial matters, rather than enjoying the glorious nature of Marisa Miller bikini pics. Bad THG.

Click. Enlarge. Enjoy. These are Wurth your time ...

Fans of The Hills may recall that in a previous season, Lauren Conrad got a puppy named Chloe that played a role in Audrina Patridge moving out.

Waaay back in the day, Heidi Montag's ex, Jordan Eubanks, got her a dog that she quickly got tired of and vanished to some undisclosed location.

PETA, get on that one.

Kristin Cavallari and her adorable (albeit somewhat angry-looking) dog would fit right in on The Hills! Here's the former Laguna Beach star - who's said to be coming to The Hills next fall - and her pet in L.A.'s Griffith Park Wednesday:

Whether she joins the cast of The Hills are not, two facts are undisputed: We've missed Kristin Cavallari, and pictures of celebrity pets are always clear winners.

It's official: Levi Johnston is now America's favorite unwed, redneck, teenage baby daddy - Casey Aldridge has turned 20! Happy birthday, Casey!

Jamie Lynn Spears' boyfriend-fiance received the best possible gift on this 29th day of April, too. He's now out of the ICU at a Mississippi hospital.

Aldridge has been up and walking around today for the first time since suffering a head injury in a car accident on Sunday: "He was a little wobbly because that's the first time he's been up since the wreck," says a family source.

Casey was hospitalized after flipping his F-250 pickup truck on the driver’s side on a two-lane road in Louisiana at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Here's hoping he recovers fully and quickly so he can go back to being known for what he first became famous for: boning Jamie Lynn Spears sans condom and knocking her adorable little self up when she was but 16. Ah, young love.

In honor of his birthday, here's a little photo tribute to Casey Aldridge, Jamie Lynn Spears and their daughter, Maddie Briann. Click to enlarge:

Perez Hilton has always made a living poking fun at (and drawing male sex organs on) celebrities. But he's also become one - powerful and wide-reaching.

"I don't consider myself a celebrity because for every two people that like me, there's probably 3 1/2 that don't," opined Hilton, who says he doesn't care if people don't like him, "I just care if you still read my Web site."

And Perez clearly loves to stir the pot.

As if being asked to judge the Miss USA pageant wasn't enough, Hilton went for a bigger splash, asking one of the finalists, Miss California Carrie Prejean, her opinion on the controversial subject of same-sex marriage.

Prejean's responses then and since - homosexual marriage is wrong, people choose to be gay, etc. - have become the hot topic on the talk-show circuit and only bolstered Perez's status as a celebrity and gay rights advocate.

Perez: Legalize Gay

LOVE HIM, HATE HIM: Either way, Perez's influence is undeniable.

Making his own media rounds, he defended the same-sex marriage question as fair and relevant. Prejean stands by her remarks; Hilton stands by his.

It's become an epic feud with the battle lines clearly drawn.

"I said she was a dumb b!tch," Hilton (a.k.a. Mario Lavandeira) said, not backing down in the slightest. "Well, you know what? What she said in that answer was that I am a second-class citizen that doesn't deserve full equality under the law."

As Shawn Johnson, Tyler Perry and Britney Spears can attest, it's been a busy month for stars and their insane stalkers. Your next victim? Tyra Banks.

Banks took the stand today in Manhattan to testify against her accused stalker, Brady Green. The nut job is on trial for stalking, harassment and criminal trespassing stemming from an incident in March of last year.

Ridiculous Tyra Banks Fashion

According to the New York Daily News, the America's Next Top Model host was calm as she told the court how terrified she and her staff were when Brady Green attempted to get past security at the Tyra Banks Show.

The staff wouldn't allow Banks to exit her dressing room.

"'Stop! No! You can't leave,'" she claimed they said. "I know I have fans, but I've never in my entire career had my staff act in this way."

The scary incident has left the 39-year-old Banks shaken to this day: "I fear for my safety," she said. "I feel extremely vulnerable."

Prosecutors say Brady Green even threatened to slash a Tyra Banks employee's throat when the person refused to give up the studio address.

"I don't fear for my life - I fear the safety of my staff," Banks explained. "I fear the safety of my family. I fear the safety of people in my vicinity."

She admitted that since Green's phone calls, love notes and appearance, she has heightened her security, even when she goes for a run.

The defendant's lawyer noted that the star's website urges viewers to write her. But Banks says Green was more aggressive than the average fan.

If convicted, Green faces a maximum of 90 days in prison.

Dita Von Teese apparently likes 'em young.

The ex-wife of Marilyn Manson is reportedly dating Count Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, a French aristocrat 11 years her younger and the actor-son of fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and his ex-wife Catherine de Castelbajac.

Burlesque dancer Dita, 36, and her new beau, 25 were recently spotted at the Coachella Music Festival. And they weren't shy about their love.

"We're all quite shocked they're together," a pal of Count Louis-Marie de Castelbajac reportedly told the New York Post. "She's really robbing the cradle."

A rep for Dita Von Teese didn't respond to requests for comment on whether she is indeed dating this hot piece. But she should. Come on, look at him.

Catherine de Castelbajac dated Bill Koch and the late Ron Silver.

We hope the young Frenchman can handle her. Wondering what Count Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, Marilyn Manson and peeps at many a burlesque show have seen plenty of? Check out these Dita Von Teese pictures and find out.

Chris Brown's high-powered lawyer, Mark Geragos, plans to ask the court to dismiss the assault and criminal threats case against his client because of leaks.

Geragos told reporters that the leaks in the Rihanna case "form the basis for a motion to dismiss the case in regard to outrageous governmental misconduct."

Whether he's successful remains to be seen, but in any case, a court date is set for Brown today in Los Angeles for his February 8 altercation with Rihanna.

The singer will not appear before the judge.

Geragos will be present on behalf of the singer. Sources say Brown signed a waiver, although it remains unclear exactly what said waiver entails.

Brown appeared in court earlier this to enter a not guilty plea on charges that he beat and threatened to kill Rihanna in a violent altercation that left the Barbados native, and his girlfriend at the time, bruised, bitten and unconscious.

Following the not guilty plea, Brown's team and the L.A. County District Attorney's office were said to be working on a plea deal. That was weeks ago.

Several reports now suggest a deal is closer, if not imminent.

According to legal experts, Mark Geragos (above) is expected to ask for more time in the case to search for further evidence. If he is unable to secure additional time from the judge, a preliminary hearing date may be set in the case.

At the preliminary hearing, prosecutors presens the case before a judge explaining they have enough material to pursue a conviction. Geragos will counter that they do not, and the judge will decide if a criminal trial is warranted.

Regardless of the outcome, Rihanna and Chris Brown want no part of that, as it could result in information going public that both want to suppress.

Brown has sought a plea deal in which he does not serve jail time, but as the felonies he's charged with carry almost five years, that's a hard sell.

"I would imagine all parties would be interested in resolving the case so as to avoid the public airing of dirty laundry at a trial," said Shawn Chapman Holley, who has represented The Game and Lindsay Lohan but is not involved here.

"If the D.A. makes a 'tough' offer, this makes it a difficult choice for the defendant," the attorney added.

"For example, if they offer a deal that still carries significant jail time, the defendant might want to take his chances at trial. Doing so, however, exposes a high-profile defendant to unwanted negative publicity."

UPDATE: Judge Patricia Schnegg set a preliminary hearing for May 28 - the result of Geragos pushing for as late a date as possible to allow him adequate time to respond to the investigation into how Rihanna's police photo was released.

Geragos says he will still move to have Brown's case dismissed should the haunting photo's appearance prove to be the result of a police transgression.
