A new name has surfaced in the Michael Jackson paternity saga, a saga so incredibly weird that it's getting difficult to keep the names straight.

At least this alleged baby mama has only one name (that we know of).

Vintage Michael Jackson

A Mexican nurse named Helena was hand-picked by the late King of Pop to act as surrogate mother to the late star's son Blanket, the Daily Mirror reports.

Blanket (real name Prince Michael Jackson II) was conceived via IVF using the King of Pop's sperm, according to the report, and born on February 21, 2002.

On Blanket's birth certificate, Michael is listed as the father, while the mother’s name is blank. He was born at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, Calif.

The singer's third son was born to Helena, a friend told the Mirror, because the mother of his first two children, Debbie Rowe, had health problems that interfered with any more pregnancies, sending Jackson on a hunt for a new surrogate.

Michael Jackson reportedly paid Helena just $20,000 (?!) for her services, but supplied her with an expense account and a staff of servants at one point.

“He chose Helena because she had a Latino background but she was also a U.S. citizen and had quite fair skin," a friend of Jackson’s told the Mirror.

“He liked her because she was attractive and seemed stable and intelligent. She was a nurse or medical assistant, which he also liked. She was around 5 feet, 4 inches, slim, aged around 30 and had long, dark, straight hair."

"He said she was strait-laced, almost a girl next door type. There were no dramas with her. She knew what she had to do and got on with it.”

A pair of loons who should probably be receiving mental health care, Claire Elisabeth Fields Cruise and Billie Jean Jackson, also claim to be Blanket's mom.

Other rumors have suggested that Pia Bhatti, the mother of Michael's "secret son" Omer Bhatti, was chosen by MJ to carry Blanket. He has many moms.

Elsewhere, Michael is rumored not to have fathered his first two children.

His friends Mark Lester and Arnold Klein - both of whom donated sperm to the singer - have been the subject of paternity rumors regarding Michael Jr. and Paris Jackson.

Looks like a celebration was in order after dissing Kate Major.

Jon Gosselin's hilarious midlife crisis was in full swing as the father of eight partied with some 19-year-olds Tuesday night, according to Perez Hilton.

While the celebrity blogger does not cite any sources for the story, he claims pictures of Jon boozing it up were put on Facebook by fellow revelers.

Teens are inclined to do that, and nothing Jon does would surprise us in the least, but take this with a grain of salt, as we can't really back it up.

The guy is a d-bag, though. We can state that with certainty.

Jon Gosselin likes beer almost as much as dating mediocre girls.

We wonder how Mady and Cara Gosselin will react to seeing this on Facebook when they get old enough to make their own accounts. Or whether they will add Hailey Glassman and Stephanie Santoro as friends and post on their walls.

Nadya Suleman has landed back in Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Bellflower, Calif., a source close to the drain on society reports Wednesday morning.

While the reason for her hospitalization is unknown, the source added that Nadya Suleman is expected to remain there for at least 24-48 hours.

“This is not a big deal and Nadya should be back on her feet in a couple of days” the source told Radar Online. Ah. We can only pray, and hope.

Maybe they can cure her chronic case of siphoning off taxpayers.

Octomom Talking

FERTILITY: Octomom has that going for her. And nothing else.

Nadya Suleman, a single, jobless mom of 14, underwent minor surgery in May. Sadly, that operation have not made her infertile, so the brood may grow yet.

Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage - yes, a two-hour Octomom TV special - will air Wednesday, August 19 on Fox. Set your DVR so you don't miss it.

The program will chronicle the saga of Nadya, who despite having six kids already, got artificially inseminated with eight more and gave birth in January.

Only in America can you have an affair with an underage girl who proceeds to shoot your wife in the face, then sue your ex-wife for defamation of character after she divorces you and publishes a book calling you a sociopath.

That's precisely what Joey Buttafuoco is doing, more than a decade and a half after mistress Amy Fisher put a bullet in his wife Mary Jo Buttafuoco's skull.

She just published Getting It Through My Thick Skull - Why I Stayed, What I Learned, and What Millions of People Involved with Sociopaths Need to Know.

It's an appropriate title for several reasons. But Joey believes Mary Jo's describing and diagnosing him as a "good sociopath" is in her memoir is just unfair.

His lawyer claims: "The injury to Mr. Buttafuoco has been compounded by the publicity tour Ms. Buttafuoco has made to promote her book. She has appeared on numerous TV programs, repeating outrageous statements concerning my client's character."

"These defamatory statements have made Mr. Buttafuoco a pariah in the community, causing him public embarrassment and the loss of business."

Wait ... he had never suffered public embarrassment prior to this? And someone did business with him after Amy Fisher shot Mary Jo in the head?

Joey seeks damages and the removal of the book from the publisher's imprint.

Joey Buttafuoco Mug Shot

Joey Buttafuoco, upstanding citizen, is not about to take this character assassination lightly. The class act says he has suffered greatly as a result of Mary Jo's book.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is hitting back against sexual assault accuser Andrea McNulty, saying she is lying and mentally unstable.

The NFL star's lawyer unloaded serious allegations at McNulty, claiming she bragged about sleeping with Ben and told pals she "hoped" he knocked her up.

In legal documents filed Friday in Washoe County, Nevada, Ben's legal squad went after McNulty's "false and slanderous" claim - and insists she "boasted to her friends and co-workers that she had consensual sexual relations with Mr. Roethlisberger."

On top of Andrea "being happy" about sleeping with him, Roethlisberger claims after the incident, McNulty "was also not afraid or apprehensive about the prospect of an unplanned pregnancy, but expressed that she hoped that she was pregnant."

Ben's portrait of Andrea McNulty only gets worse.

Ben Roethlisberger and Andrea McNulty slept together in July 2008.

Ben blames Andrea McNulty's "alleged problems - lack of job security, need for medical benefits, need for treatment, increasing debt and lack of income" - on her "inability to do her job" at Harrah's Casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada:

"[McNulty's] psychological breakdown appears to be the sad by-product of an affair with a married man whose wife concocted a scheme to have [her] fall in love with a fictional soldier and be abandoned by him to create heartbreak and instability."

The document wasn't just an excuse to bash Andrea McNulty.

Ben's lawyers have requested to move the case out of Washoe County, Nev., "for the convenience of all parties and witnesses and in the interest of justice."

So far, the judge has not ruled on their request. Suffice it to say, Ben denied any wrongdoing in his only public comments since Andrea McNulty filed suit.

Do you believe Andrea's sexual assault allegation?

Katie Price, a.k.a. Jordan, is being accused of ruining the gay wedding she attended over the weekend by unleashing a four-letter rant on stage.

Taking the stage for a karaoke version of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" at the civil partnership of make-up artists Gary Cockerill and Phil Taylor, the 31-year-old model proclaimed that the audience were "all c***s!"

Katie Price and Boobs

Classy. And odd, given the crowd.

A guest interviewed by the Sun (UK) said "the woman is insane."

You won't find many celebrity gossip readers arguing.

"She said she wouldn't sing live because there were too many c***s there who would enjoy hearing her sing off key. She said we were all c***s. Then she said Peter Andre was a f*****g a******e. People walked out. She ruined everything."

Katie Price, her chest and Alex Reid at the wedding.

That about sums it up. Well, that and this: "The couple had their first dance to her miming, but the song did not come on and she was singing to herself."

Security ultimately escorted the busty model off stage.

Her new lover Alex Reid, 34, was said to look "hurt."

In somewhat related Katie Price news, it looks like Peter Andre is on his way to securing the #1 spot in the charts this weekend for his new single.

The apocalypse is near.

We're not pointing this out because we're saying she's ugly. In fact, we think that with no makeup, Heidi Pratt looks better than she does when she slathers it on.

It's hard to believe she used to be a cute girl, before the makeup, hair extensions and plastic surgery made her look like a horse comprised primarily of silicone.

Still, take away the makeup and you can still see traces of what Heidi Montag used to look like on the first season of The Hills before she went all Hollywood ...

Heidi Pratt? Is that you? We can't entirely tell.

Amazing, no? Heidi was spotted at a yogurt shop in Malibu, Calif., last night, looking relaxed with no make-up on in casual clothing and Ugg boots. Kinda cute.

A lot more so than the Heidi Pratt Playboy spread coming out. Talk about airbrushed and unattractive ... and not even naked! What's the point of even doing it?

Well, money, obviously.

Here are a few more pictures of a casually-dressed Heidi Montag walking and talking with sleazy husband Spencer Pratt. These two are made for each other:

If Britney Spears' sons language is any indication, Sean Preston and Jayden James are quickly following in their white trash dad's classy footsteps.

While the star picked up goodies at a swag suite last week, to honor the peeps at the Teen Choice Awards, her kids made quite the impression.

Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2, repeatedly yelled, "Oh $h!t!"

Not that this is a surprise. This sort of thing comes from upbringing, and they spend most of their time in a house with K-Fed and Victoria Prince.

Not that people were mortified. They are still cute, after all.

"We were all surprised by their potty mouths, but it was actually pretty funny," one Sean P. onlooker acknowledged to the New York Daily News.

How did Britney Spears respond to her sons' foul-mouthed antics? "She was too busy picking out freebies to chastise the boys for misbehaving."

Sounds about right.

The Hills star Audrina Patridge agreed to go on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, according to reports, only to have MTV shoot down her dreams.

"They won't let Audrina do it," a source dished to E! Online.

Sherri Shepherd and Val Chmerkovskiy

"They told her it would be impossible because of scheduling."

However, The Hills doesn't usually shoot on Mondays and Tuesdays, the two days Audrina would be at DWTS for the performance and elimination shows.

"Audrina Patridge wants to do it. Everyone around her wants her to do it," the source said. "But MTV, for some reason, won't make it happen."

Dashed are Audrina Patridge's dreams of going Dancing with the Stars.

"Why wouldn't they want someone from The Hills on such a huge show? Dancing With the Stars would give MTV all this exposure, but they won't budge."

It would also let Audrina be herself instead of reading cue cards all the time and pretending to care about staged fights with Justin-Bobby. Bummer.

Audrina is currently developing her own reality show with Mark Burnett.

Other possible DWTS contenders in Season 9 are said to be Vera Wang, Dean McDermott, Lou Ferrigno and, per a report yesterday, La Toya Jackson.

Sounds like a crew that needs Audrina to spice things up. Weak.
