Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards were as notable for celebrity fashion statements as for whatever random awards the network arbitrarily handed out.

A Gossip Girl cutie was daringly sexy in a Emilio De La Morena cut-out dress, the new Brian Atwood Brie purple suede shoes and Cathy Waterman jewels.

In a recent interview, Paris Hilton explained why her boyfriend - and Lauren Conrad's ex - Doug Reinhardt won't be appearing on MTV's The Hills in the future.

No, not because the show's star dumped him, but ...

"The show is, like, so lame and fake," she said. "He doesn't want to be a part of it. They make up relationships when they're not there. He just thinks it's lame."

MTV Movie Awards weekend guest hosts and The Hills stars Frankie Delgado and Stephanie Pratt responded to her comments, saying she should apologize.

"Doug's not even on the show, so I don't even understand that," said the annoying sister of Spencer Pratt. "And in real life he is friends with those boys, so it's not fake. I would never call her show dumb, so I think she should apologize."

NO YOU DIDN'T: Stephanie Pratt and her 70 I.Q. points take issue with Paris.

Delgado also defended The Hills, saying: "She knows that it's not fake. It's not fake at all. It's as real as it gets. There's no way to create that kind of drama. Nothing can even be scripted like that. Things do happen and they happen for a reason."

But Frankie Delgado did point out that although there's nothing fake about the show, sometimes their friends' personalities may give people that impression.

"Some people ... maybe their personalities are fake. They act fake on the show, but that's what makes it dramatic," Brody's BFF explained. "She should understand it's all entertainment. It's all business ... Paris, it's all business."

So, in conclusion, the show is not fake, but some of the people on it act fake, and that's what makes it dramatic, so therefore it is fake. Thanks, Frankie.

Greetings, gossip fans. Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff takes a look back at what was most likely the greatest week in the storied history of celeb gossip and news.

Well, maybe not, but there were plenty of good stories ...

  • Jon and Kate Plus 8... and a divorce date?
  • If Chris Brown is tried as scheduled June 22, Rihanna will testify.
  • Regardless, he claims in an online video that he ain't a monster.
  • In the aftermath of Adam Lambert's puzzling American Idol loss, there was a rumor going around that AT&T rigged the show to favor Kris Allen.
  • Rolling Stone jumped the shark with a story on Lady Gaga. Actually, we take that back, they jumped it a decade ago. But still, Lady Gaga nude.
  • Did one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey have a criminal, drug-using, stripping past? This Danielle Staub mug shot seems to suggest so.

Talk about a sexy, but contentious trio.

Brody Jenner, Playmate girlfriend Jayde Nicole and his ex-girlfriend - and new star of The Hills - Kristin Cavallari filmed their new Tequila Don Julio campaign in L.A.

K 2 the C

From the looks of the photo below, Brody and his babes, past and present, were in good spirits. At least Jayde didn't threaten to punch Kristin ... we think:

Kristin and Brody, who dated before he went out with Lauren Conrad, and even set up Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt on their first date, also attended a birthday party at Pinches Tacos yesterday. Jayde Nicole was on hand for that as well.

While Kristin and Jayde rocked short shorts, Brody Jenner, ever the man of trend-setting style, celebrated his love of culture in a tasteful poncho and sombrero.

We can only hope it becomes his new look.

While details of some of The Hills stars' recent drama won’t be shown until September, we know Audrina Patridge hates Kristin almost as hard as she does Jayde.

Sunday’s mid-season finale marks Kristin's debut. Stay tuned!

In week two, The Bachelorette briefly morphed into The Amazing Date, with Jillian Harris sending the guys on a scavenger hunt to win a romantic date.

Later, she did some two-steppin' with buttoned-up airline pilot Jake, hooped it up with the Harlem Globetrotters, and got a kick out of Mike’s surprise.

If you missed that, well, um, there was a Speedo involved.

Here's what Jillian had to say about the episode in her blog ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My second week as The Bachelorette was an incredible whirlwind.

All 20 guys moved into the house and I moved into the mansion. It was strange having the master bedroom to myself. I shared that room with six other girls last season.

The first date started as a pool party at the mansion that turned into a scavenger hunt through L.A. I felt bad leaving the party early, but I knew it was part of the game.

I felt so glamorous driving through Los Angeles in that convertible!

Hang Time

JAM SESSION: Jill's basketball skillz were on display later in the episode.

As the guys raced through the streets, I called each of them to see how they were doing. Somehow, Tanner and Mike Stag ended up in Chinatown! I was like, “Where are you?” and Mike was like, “I don’t know, there are all these signs that we can’t read!”

Brian and Ed stopped along the way to get me a flower, which was so sweet of them, but it also held them up. I was lucky that I had time to stop and get ready along the way. The guys had to drive around in wet swim trunks until they changed into their tuxes.

I loved the dress I wore at the Crocker Club. I felt like a total princess in it. And I wore my favorite shoes that my dad got me for good luck.

I felt awful that I could only choose one guy to have dinner with in the vault. I wanted to invite them all in! But, in the end I chose Wes because he was the most mysterious to me and I wanted to get to know him better.

Chace Crawford is supposedly dating Esti Ginzburg. That is exciting.

In less stimulating news that also involves him contorting his body, he begins shooting the upcoming remake of the 1984 classic Footloose next March.

Chace Picture

The 23-year-old Gossip Girl star landed the Footloose role after Zac Efron dropped out: "I know Zac and we're actually friends," Crawford tells EW.com.

"He's gotta make the best choice for his career at this point and I have to make the best for mine, and luckily the situation worked out for both of us."

Chace won the part after an audition, including dancing and singing, for the movie's producers and High School Musical director Kenny Ortega.

“It was, like, five hours of the most rigorous tests ever,” says the Texas native.

Dancing With the StarsJulianne Hough will audition this week for the female lead role alongside Crawford. Some think her recent success as a country music star, in addition to her dancing prowess, could give her an edge.

Regardless of what gorgeous female stars opposite the Gossip Girl hunk, you can bet that Footloose will pay homage to the '80s film in many respects.

Also expect to hear familiar tunes, but maybe not see the same choreography: “I don’t know if the gymnastics scene is going to make it,” says Crawford. “I’ve got some movement, but I’m not exactly a dancer. I need to start stretching now.”

More of the latter than the former, fortunately. In GQ's upcoming story on Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin's baby daddy, we learn a lot about the young dad.

For one, he can use sentences with more than three words and words with more than one syllable - a shocker for those who saw his talk show tour.

The 19-year-old also says he's "never done anything but hunt and fish and camp." That's not true - he also boned Bristol Palin and got her pregnant.

Moreover, he joined her mom, Sarah, onstage at the GOP National Convention; playing a moderate-size role in the great Republican melodrama of 2008.

After a cold snap, things have been better lately between him and Bristol Palin, who has taken to dropping off their son, Tripp, herself to see him.

Levi Johnston Shirtless

After dueling TV appearances earlier in May (Bristol was talking about teen pregnancy and abstinence for Candie's, Levi was basically mumbling the opposite to ... whoever would air it), the two exchanged flirty text messages.

That led to a warmth between them, and now they're in regular contact.

Whether his relations with Todd and Sarah Palin, who on several occasions offered to buy Bristol a car if she'd dump Levi, are thawing is another issue.

Getting back together, though, is "not even in" Levi's mind. He's focusing on hunting bears and, his lawyer says, taking "the chance to tell his story."

Is Crawford Chace-ing some new tail?

A New York Post spy who attended a dinner party thrown by the fashion label Sergio Rossi at Sole East in Montauk reports that Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Esti Ginzburg, 19, was texting the Gossip Girl star all night Sunday.

Moreover, she left the party to go meet up with him.

The stunner just ended her relations with a New York real estate developer, the report adds, calling her relationship with Chace "initial." Hot and initial.

Seriously, talk about your good-looking couples ...

Esti Ginzburg Topless

Two hot young stars. One football. Zero tops.

Esti Ginzburg is slated to star with Chace Crawford in Twelve, Joel Schumacher's adaptation of Nick McDonell's book about drug-addled NYC prep schoolers.

What do you think? Is she an appropriate match for the Gossip Girl stud muffin? Do your research by enlarging some more photos of the Israeli beauty ....

It looks like Rihanna may finally break her silence - under oath - about the alleged assault on her earlier this year by boyfriend Chris Brown.

Following a hearing in Los Angeles this morning, Rihanna's lawyer, Donald Etra, said prosecutors intend to subpoena the singer to appear at a June 22 hearing, so that a court can determine if there's enough evidence to proceed with a trial.

RiRi Topless

"The DA has advised me that she will be subpoenaed [to testify]," Etra said, noting that Rihanna would therefore be subject to cross-examination by Chris Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos. "She absolutely will comply."

Meanwhile, Geragos was unsuccessful in gaining access to police records to find out who leaked the now-infamous battered Rihanna photo.

In denying Geragos' request, L.A. Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said that while she agreed the leaked photo was unfortunate, she argued it had nothing to do Brown's arrest and wouldn't significantly impact his right to a fair trial.

"It matters to me not if your client is high-profile or not," the judge said. "I don't believe you're entitled [to demand access to police records]."

The attorney has been relentlessly pursuing the origin of the photo, likely trying to use it as leverage to secure a plea deal for Brown, who he believes cannot be fairly tried based on prospective jurors' existing perception of him.

Asked, after his motion was denied, if he's confident he can keep Brown from doing time, Geragos replied, "I'm not going to address any of that."

Brown, 20, has pleaded not guilty to allegedly beating Rihanna on February 8. If convicted, he faces up to four years and eight months in prison.

The embattled star was hit with another lawsuit earlier today, filed by a celebrity news photographer who alleges Brown's bodyguards assaulted him.

Experts say the felony case likely won't go to trial, but will end in a plea bargain, which could happen any time. However, this has been the theory for two months, which suggests Geragos and the D.A. have yet to find a mutually acceptable deal.

In a ridiculous video posted Tuesday with his pal Bow Wow, Brown sort of broke his silence for the first time since the incident and told fans "I ain't a monster" in an apparent reference to the case. His reps had no comment.

Meanwhile, Rihanna was spotted getting cozy with Canadian hip-hop artist Aubrey "Drake" Graham, although the rapper stated they're just friends.
