LeAnn Rimes and Dean Sheremet, who she married back in 2001, may be on the verge of splitting up, according to new reports published by In Touch Weekly.

Signing autographs for country music fans at the Nashville Convention Center on June 14, the singing star looked as if there was nowhere she’d rather be.

Skin and Bones

But 20 miles away at the couple's house in Franklin, Tenn., her husband, dancer Dean Sheremet, was reportedly not in a good mood at all.

According to an insider close to the couple, LeAnn, 26, has told him that she is ready to file for divorce - and that she’s ready to leave him.

She is said to long for her married Lifetime movie co-star Eddie Cibrian.

“Dean is completely distraught and heartbroken,” says an insider.

LeAnn Rimes and her beard husband Dean Sheremet in happier times.

Rimes and Cibrian were tied to one another earlier this year in a cheating scandal that many believed was merely a PR stunt for their movie.

However, just last month, Cibrian's wife, Brandi Glanville, bashed Rimes for "stalking" her husband and implied she was obsessed with him.

LeAnn responded that she is no stalker, laughed off the accusation and said that Brandi was defaming her in a shameless bid for attention.

But are LeAnn and Dean headed down the road to divorce? It's not the first time the lovebirds' relationship has hit a rough patch. Stay tuned.

Sort of literally!

If you've been dreaming of snuggling up to your very own version of Edward Cullen every now and then, well, it looks like you’re very much in luck.

Mattel has created its own Edward Cullen Ken doll, with “shimmering complexion” and “trademark gold eyes,” in homage to the Twilight character.

If it’s your thing, you can order a Bella Swan Barbie, too.

Toys “R” Us recommends the dolls for people ages 6-7 years, but given the vastness of the Twilight universe, expect big sales among people 6-27.

Just try to keep the squealing to a reasonable volume.

  • Twilight Barbies
  • Krizzle Stizzle

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's characters from Twilight have been immortalized in Barbie form. Get them while they last. Go on. It's okay, we won't tell anyone.

As for the actors that play Edward and Bella, they have been romantically linked of late, with some reports even saying they are obsessed with each other.

They are on opposite ends of the U.S., though, with Kristen filming The Runaways in L.A. and Rob kissing Emilie de Ravin on the NYC set of Remember Me.

In October they will be reunited on the set of Eclipse. Stay tuned.

Paris Hilton has dated so many dudes that some of them didn't even make our recent boyfriend retrospective, which in itself was an impressive list.

That's because for every Doug Reinhardt, some lucky stiff who ransacked Paris' booty back in the day drifts further and further into obscurity.

Happy Hilton

So who has been the best so far, according to her mom, Kathy Hilton?

“Jason Shaw, he was my favorite,” she said.

Jason who?

Paris Hilton and Jason Shaw were engaged from mid-2002 to early 2003 and he is said to have starred in one of the ho-tel heiress' infamous sex tapes. Obviously.

On the heels of Paris Hilton’s breakup with Doug Reinhardt, her family isn’t quite sure why they broke up, but there are various theories going around, such as him being a douche, using her for fame, and/or cheating on her with Kendahl Beal.

In any event, Kathy longs for a man for her daughter that does his own thing:

“Paris needs to have someone strong enough; Paris is in love with the idea of being in love. It’s important for her to find someone who has their own business.”

For now, no man is with Paris in Dubai, where she has been giving a new meaning to the term camel tow. But we give her single status a couple of hours.

She may have no clue where she is at any given point in time, but deezamn, the girl sure looks good and she's totally super rich, so what does it matter, right?

Enjoying a day off in between European Circus tour stops, Britney Spears visited the posh Sky Boutique to - what else!? - shop Monday in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 27-year-old pop princess took a short break from her world tour, also making a stop at Target to pick up a Michael Jackson Number Ones CD to listen to.

Here's the girlfriend of Jason Trawick in action ...

Looking fabulous, Britney enjoys a relaxing day in L.A.

In other news, Britney has reportedly, for reasons unknown, been offered a role a new film called The Yellow Star of Sophia and Eton, set during World War II.

Her character would be Sophia LaMont, who creates a time machine and travels back to WWII where she meets a man called Eton at a concentration camp.

There you go. We doubt it will ever be made, but sounds totally great. Click to enlarge more Britney Spears pictures from her recent shopping endeavor ...

The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck usually sparks controversy with her conservative opinions, or by condemning Michael Phelps, baby killers, etc.

Now the 32-year-old lightning rod is branching out.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Tim Hasselbeck

Self-published author Susan Hassett of Falmouth, Mass., states in a federal lawsuit filed in Boston that the TV blabbermouth infringed on her copyright by publishing her book on Celiac Disease, The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide.

Publicists for ABC and Hasselbeck's publisher, Hachette Book Group, could not be reached for comment by the Boston Herald, which reported the story.

Hasselbeck, who is pregnant with her third child, suffers from Celiac Disease, which damages one's small intestine and interferes with nutrient absorption.

The talk show host, who's been married to former football star Tim Hasselbeck for years, first learned she had the disorder after appearing on Survivor.

As a result, she cannot cannot eat gluten (found in wheat, rye and barley).

Whether Elisabeth Hasselbeck must now eat a large settlement of money after stealing an idea for her book? That is likely for a judge to decide.

The surrogate mother helping Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick expand their brood gave birth to twin daughters today, according to reports.

Sources tell 7 News in Martins Ferry, Ohio, that Parker and Broderick are at the hospital with the surrogate, who was recently the target of extortion.

Parker and Broderick are expected to make some type of announcement before leaving the hospital. Officially, the hospital has no comment at this time.

Security at the hospital is tight, with additional guards brought in and even more on standby, if needed, as the story is expected to get major attention.

The pair first announced they were expecting twins in April.

The new twin girls join the couple's biological son, James.

All of this comes on the heels of an investigation centering on the Martins Ferry Police Chief and nearby Chief Chad Dojack who allegedly conspired to break into the home owned by Parker and Broderick's surrogate mother for reasons unknown.

The criminal investigation into that incident is ongoing.

Congrats to Matthew and Sarah Jessica!

Anyone who's seen Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson nude knows she is not the type to wear frumpy maternity clothes. Or any clothes for that matter.

It's no surprise, then, that she fashions herself a hot mama.

Kendra Kiss

"Maternity clothes are not for me!" the pregnant Playboy cover girl said at the premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. "I'll just buy bigger things!"

Wilkinson, who is in her fourteenth week of pregnancy, is just starting to show off her baby bump - "But it looks like you just had a big lunch," her former Girls Next Door co-star Bridget Marquardt said. "You can't tell she's pregnant yet!"

Wilkinson and her fiance Hank Baskett - who are getting married this Saturday at the Playboy mansion - have openly said they are hoping for a son.

Not that a daughter would be the worst thing in the world.

"I want a boy!" Kendra said. "But if it's a girl, that's fine too."

The couple - who now stars on its own E! reality show, Kendra - find out the sex in "a couple of weeks, and "We are so excited for all this," she says.

"We couldn't ask for anything better to happen in our lives. It's time for this to happen," Wilkinson added. "Everybody is like, 'Are you rushing things?' I'm like, 'If we weren't moving too fast then we would be moving way too slow.' This is us."

Besides having her dress altered to fit her "enormous boobs," Kendra, who celebrated her bachelorette party last week, said she and Hank aren't doing anything special to accommodate her pregnancy at their wedding.

"Everything is going on as planned. The only different thing for me is that I won't be drinking. I'll be drinking Martinelli's apple juice!" Wilkinson said.

Last night's installment of The Bachelorette was less notable for any events that took place than for what it teased regarding future episodes in the last three minutes.

We're coming down the home stretch of Jillian Harris' quest for love, as she cut the field from eight to five suitors, all of whom will go on "hometown" dates with her.

Of the three guys who were sent packing on Monday's episode (the sixth of the season), unemployed bartender Robby and foot fetishist Tanner Pope were obvious.

Her cutting Jake Pavelka, however, was a bit of a surprise.

Most of the episode (if not the season) was based around Jake being Mr. Perfect. He is hot. He is a pilot, which is awesome. He is super nice, fun and charming.

Jillian Harris acknowledged all of these things. Yet he goes.

This made little sense until the three-minute preview for the rest of the season aired: Jake Pavelka comes back to the show to tell Jillian about Wes' intentions!

This future development also casts a different light on Wes Hayden, who spent most of last night's show admitting, even bragging about his ulterior motives.

  • Jake From The Bachelorette
  • Jillian Harris and Wes

Jake has been dying to call out Wes. He will soon get the chance.

That he has an agenda is not shocking, but no one coming on The Bachelorette merely to promote his music would be so blatant as to say he is "not here for the girl" and that he can "feel" and "taste" the record sales he will generate from this.

Unless, of course, it is all a contrived sham. As is Jake being kicked off only to come back and stir up drama by calling out Wes and his alleged girlfriend.

It seems to The Hollywood Gossip that Jake's elimination was scripted from the start, just like Ed's departure last week because of "work" commitments.

Are Jake and Ed still in the running for Jillian? Were their reasons for departing legitimate, and only their returns staged? Or has this been the plan all along?

That we can't say, but spoilers will surely emerge. We'll be seeing both Jake and Ed in the coming weeks in some form though, you can mark our words.

Because as Jason Mesnick, Melissa Rycroft and Molly Malaney proved to record ratings, what's "reality" TV without a compelling, manipulated story to tell?

A recap of who's left on The Bachelorette after week six ...

On to next week's "hometown" dates: Reid (one-on-one date); Kiptyn (group date); Wes, Jesse and Michael (rose ceremony).

Sent packing by Jillian Harris: Robby (left on side of the train tracks); Jake and Tanner P. (not given roses at ceremony).

Jillian Harris narrowed her group of eight hopefuls to five last night.

Perez Hilton used the word "f**got" to describe will.i.am during their fight the other night, which the blogger said he did because it would really tick him off.

It worked, and Perez was assaulted by the Black Eyed Peas' manager.

Well, not surprisingly, it appears that will.i.am and his camp were not the only peeps offended by the crass use of the anti-gay slur by Perez (who is gay).

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) says they have asked the most hated man in celebrity gossip to apologize for using the awful word.

Perez must be really busy scrawling sex organs and unfunny comments on various celebrity pictures, because he has yet to respond to the group's request.

Perez Hilton allegedly received a black eye for disturbing the Peas.

GLAAD's statement on the incident - which led to Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina being arrested and charged with assault on Hilton, reads:

"We have reached out to Perez Hilton and asked him to apologize for promoting this anti-gay slur, and we would ask media outlets to avoid repetition of the slur in their coverage of this story.

"For someone in our own community to use it to attack another human being by saying that it is, quote, 'The worst possible thing that thug would ever want to hear,' is incredibly dangerous."

"It legitimizes use of a slur that is often linked to violence against our community. And it sends a message that it is OK to attempt to dehumanize people by exploiting these anti-gay attitudes."

Follow the link for a video of the Perez-will.i.am fight, and tell us what you think. Did Perez get what he deserved? Should be apologize? What about the Peas?

Ed McMahon has died at the age of 86. He was awesome.

The former TV mainstay passed away at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in California this morning, following a battle with myriad health problems.

McMahon's fight against cancer had been well-documented over the past year. He is survived by his wife Pam and six children from previous marriages.

He is best known as Johnny Carson's sidekick on The Tonight Show for many years, during which he coined his catchphrase, "Heeeeeeeeere's Johnny!"

Ed McMahon (1923-2009).

McMahon also hosted Star Search and TV Bloopers and Practical Jokes with Dick Clark. He made a number of film appearances and TV guest starring roles.

Prior to show business, was a colonel in the United States Marines and a fighter pilot who served during the late 1940s and 1950s. A real American hero!

While financial and health problems consumed the last few years of his life, McMahon will always be one of entertainment world's great icons. Farewell, Ed.
