Sweet Jesus.

Hoping for a knockout in the boxing ring, or at least the modeling world, Madonna’s reputed boy toy went shirtless in Dolce & Gabbana’s fall ad campaign.

Steven Klein photographed the hotness that is Jesus Luz at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn. Women's Wear Daily says the ad was inspired by Italian film director Luchino Visconti’s pugilist flick Rocco e I Suoi Fratelli (Rocco and His Brothers).

Whatever that means.

Here's Jesus in the celebrity fashion ad. Also featured: David Gandy, Noah Mills, The City loser Adam Senn, Julienne Quevenne and Eva Herzigova:

After narrowing the field from 16 to 13 last week, Jillian Harris cut three more last night on The Bachelorette, including both Juan and his nemesis David.

Who was the third to depart, and who's emerging as a contender?

As always, The Hollywood Gossip's recap below revisits some highlights, with points awarded and deducted as our staff members see fit. Here goes ...

Minus 2 for Juan not getting the one-on-one date. We really wanted 5-10 minutes' worth of Juan platitudes ... and a chance to say "Juan-on-Juan date."

Speaking of the one-on-one date, Jillian's note says, "Kiptyn - Let's cook up some love, Vancouver style." What does that even mean? There was no such thing as "Vancouver style" anything until host-pimp Chris Harrison wrote that. But hey, Plus 3 because Vancouver was a great setting for this week and seems like a hella cool city.

Kiptyn is a dumb name. Minus 6. Though the dude probably became awesome because he was saddled with that since birth. That's one way to make your kid an overachiever - name him Kiptyn and force him to overcompensate his entire life.

Kiptyn: Silly name, but great looks and personality.

Jillian Harris tells Kiptyn that physically, her type is "well, you wanna look in the mirror?" Typical, cute comment from a girl who's not normally that forward but totally has a crush on a guy and has had 4-5 glasses of wine. Plus 8.

Jake Pavelka says his previous dancing date with Jillian Harris "made his life." Jillian says everything out of Jake's mouth is "perfect." Wow. If these two are trying to hide their romance, they're doing an awful job. Minus 5.

Plus 7 for a curling competition to cuddle the Canadian cutie. Normally you only get to see this game of "shuffleboard on skates" televised every four years. It wasn't even a shameless plug, as the Olympics are on another network!

Juan calmly boasts that he possesses the "skill, speed and touch" to excel at curling. This guy doesn't have a high opinion of himself at all. Minus 12.

In the course of 30 seconds, crazy Dave makes a comment about Jillian's "tit" hanging out, gets rejected for a kiss, says that's "never" happened to him before, then implies that The Bachelorette star is a slut. Plus 17 for sheer hilarity.

Piece of advice, Jill: don't start a sentence with the words: "Every girl's dream," and then immediately follow them with "... in the kitchen." Minus 3.

Dismayed Bachelorette

Jillian Harris is upset by rumors that one or more of the guys on The Bachelorette may have girlfriends at home. It's hard to blame her ... or be at all surprised.

Having a girlfriend and being on The Bachelorette is "the rudest possible thing I've ever, ever known in my entire life," says Jillian. Mmm. Yeah. Uh, it's a reality show, girl. Who would ever go on one with less than pure intentions? Minus 10.

Playing up the ulterior motives / girlfriend angle so hard in the promos, yet not actually resolving anything was really lame, ABC, but at least it resulted in more Chris Harrison screen time, so we'll award the whole thing Plus 2.

Wes Hayden is obviously a shameless, self-promoting hack and pretty annoying to boot, but let's face it, the show needs a villain like him, so ... Even?

TOTAL: -1. SEASON: +24.

Sacked by Jillian Harris: Mike (two-on-one date); Juan, David (rose ceremony).

Still with a chance of getting in the sack with the lovely Jillian Harris: Kiptyn (one-on-one date); Jesse (group date); Mark (two-on-one date); Reid, Robby, Ed, Michael, Wes, Jake, and Tanner P. (rose ceremony).

The Britney Spears conservatorship - since she can't file anything herself of course - has filed a response to ex-leech Sam Lutfi's lawsuit against her.

In a four-page document filed last week, Brit's camp, headed by her dad Jamie Spears and an aptly-named lawyer, Andrew Wallet, shoots down Lutfi's claims.

One by one, they put the bag of ass in his place, starting with Lutfi's top beef - that he is supposedly owed some serious cash for being Britney's manager.

But in court documents, Britney's handlers claim the oral contract between them is void because Sam "made false promises" in order to get her to agree to it.

Lutfi's days at the helm of Britney's career are thankfully over.

That wouldn't surprise us one bit. Also, Jamie Spears, Britney's dad, has already filed a response to the claims of assault filed against him by Sam Lutfi.

The Evil One's attorney remained confident he would prevail.

"I was hardly shocked that they didn't agree with our position," Bryan Freedman told E! News. "But I think there is ample evidence of this contract. There are writings that indicate the same. At the end of the day there won't be much dispute about this."

Brit's camp wants Lutfi to pay its legal fees as well. Stay tuned.

The nine of you old enough to remember Saved By the Bell will appreciate this.

Appearing on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote his new TNT show, Raising the Bar, Mark-Paul Gosselaar appeared in character ... as Zack Morris.

"I had to change my name to Mark-Paul Gosselaar because there was already a Zack Morris in SAG," Zack explained to the lame host, who played along.

Zack / Mark-Paul went on to reflect on his amazing SATs, his terrific summer working at the Malibu Sands and his ill-fated marriage (!) to Kelly Kapowski.

He then arranged a class reunion (as did Jessie Spano, via circa 1991 cell phone) and even joined the Late Night band for a number as "Zack Attack."

Check out this blast from the Saturday morning past below ...

Reports surrounding the hospitalization of Heidi Montag as she filmed NBC's I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! in Costa Rica continue to show varying, conflicting accounts of how The Hills star was/is being treated on the show.

Stephanie Pratt, the annoying and generally worthless co-star and younger sister of Heidi's husband Spencer, says Montag's health was pushed to the absolute brink.

"Heidi was virtually on her deathbed," the She-Pratt said Sunday in L.A. "She's never been sicker in her life. I can't believe NBC did that."

Stephanie says she spoke to her brother over the weekend. "He was calling my mom until like 5 a.m. with updates about Heidi," she said. "They are just in the black rooms with no food or water and freakin' spiders biting them."

Asked if Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag will be staying on the show, the younger Pratt opined, "I really don't think so. Heidi is really in bad shape."

Earlier today, we reported that Spencer threatened legal action against NBC for the couple's treatment. But Celebrity insiders contradict these claims.

"The accusation that the couple was harmed in any way is completely false," the source says. "The room was not filled with critters and they were protected from the elements, unlike the other contestants, who endured some strong thunderstorms."

"When they came out, they were in good spirits ... No one at any point was held against their will. Everyone who is there wants to be there."

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have already tried to leave the set of I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! more than once since its premiere last week.

On Thursday, Pratt and Montag were banished to the show's "Lost Chamber" (below) as punishment for leaving the series after an epic meltdown ... then asking to return the very next night after blaming Satan and reconsidering.

While Stephanie Pratt says the couple was in the chamber 72 hours, a source says the couple was only there for 14 - 4:30 p.m. Thursday to 6:30 a.m. Friday.

The next day, Montag was admitted to a Costa Rican hospital.

"Basically, she started throwing up," Pratt explains. "She threw up like 30 times because she had no food in her. I guess she went unconscious and was rushed to the hospital with an IV in her arm. I understand [that quitting the show] was not cool ... It was absolutely awful. But the punishment they got went way too far."

Another insider claims that Pratt is exaggerating.

"There was no torture. Heidi and Spencer were covered with a ceiling and walls while their castmates have been through thunderstorms every night," the source says.

"They were not stuck in there for days, as Stephanie Pratt is claiming. She is talking like they were locked up like prisoners at Guantanamo Bay."

NBC had no comment. The show's production company, Britain's ITV Productions, refuted claims the couple was deprived of food or water: "All allegations of the celebrities being deprived of food and water are completely untrue."

"These bachelors are making Jillian weak at the knees ... but one ... is absolute ... Kiptyn-ite!" - Ridiculous, lame ABC promo announcer guy

"That dude is literally good at everything, which sucks." - disgruntled, competing Bachelorette competitor, on Kiptyn

A new promo for tonight's episode of The Bachelorette implies that Kiptyn, considered by many fans to be a serious contender amongst a field comprised largely of n'er-do-wells, will be sweeping Jillian Harris off her feet this evening.

Moreover, he may be questioning the motives of some of the others on the show (cough, Wes). Whatever the outcome, Kip is the center of possibly the lamest marketing hook in reality TV history (a bold statement), as evidenced by the clip below ...

Follow the jump for a second preview of tonight's episode of The Bachelorette, in which Jillian takes the guys curling. She's Canadian, don'cha know.

Guess it was only a matter of time ...

Last night, Stephen Colbert paid tribute to U.S. troops during a taping of The Colbert Report in Iraq, getting his head shaved in one of Saddam Hussein’s palaces.

As military personnel watched, Gen. Ray Odierno followed videotaped orders from the Commander-in-Chief himself, President Barack Obama, and shaved his head.

Colbert's dome is a show of solidarity with the 130,000 troops still stationed in Iraq. Stephen has been taping his comedy show in Iraq for the past week.

Here's Colbert getting shorn ...

BIC IT: Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert gets the military treatment.

The comedian's ability to bring humor to a serious, often divisive situation while still showing he supports the troops above all else is no small feat.

The Colbert shaved head is a (hilarious) reminder of the sacrifice our men and women in uniform make every day, regardless of our political views.

Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando airs this week. Follow the jump for a video of Stephen Colbert talking about it on Good Morning America:

When former star of The OC Autumn Reeser decided to tie the knot with her longtime sweetheart, writer-director Jesse Warren, she had but one request:

She wanted to get married under a tree.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

On May 9, her dream came true when she exchanged self-penned vows with Warren, 31, under a 200-year old oak at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Ojai, Calif.

Wearing a gown by designer Carolina Herrera, Reeser, 28, walked down the aisle, which was decorated with white rose petals, in front of 200 friends and family.

"It was an incredible day, filled with so much love and joy," says Reeser, who played Taylor Townsend on the FOX hit show. "It surpassed all my expectations."

Hopefully Jesse Warren was able to handle what happened later that night. We hear Autumn is a terror in the sack. Oh, wait, that was Taylor Townsend. Sorry.

After dinner, it was time to hit the dance floor. Says the glowing bride: "I loved dancing with my husband and our friends and family at the reception."

Next up for the cutie? Reeser will appear in HBO's Entourage.
