"Wussup everyone???? Its the new Mrs. Hank Baskett!!!!!!!!! ahhhh hahah ahahha!! I cant believe im a married woman! yayyyyy. Just wanted to make sure u all remember that theres a brand new episode of KENDRA tonight!"

That was Kendra Wilkinson, celebrating Saturday's fairy tale wedding to Hank Baskett and plugging her reality show last night as only she can. Poignant.

Just be glad you just have to read that and not actually hear her laughing.

No Kendra Wilkinson wedding pictorial has been released, but it was "a wedding fit for a princess" at the L.A. Playboy mansion, according to witnesses.

Here's a nice overhead shot of Hank Baskett marrying Kendra's cleavage ...

BASKETT CATCH: Kendra Wilkinson grabs a man - for life - in Hank.

Among the guests in attendance were Kendra's former boyfriend, Hugh Hefner, his three current girlfriends (the Shannon Twins and Crystal Harris) and scores of other Playboy bunnies he has more than likely boned. Heartwarming.

Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, who starred with Wilkinson in The Girls Next Door, were bridesmaids. Hefner was originally going to walk her down the aisle, but Wilkinson changed her mind and her brother Colin did the honors.

About 500 guests, including many Philadelphia Eagles teammates of Hank's, in all were on hand as the pair exchanged vows on the front lawn of Kendra's old home.

The newlyweds jetted off to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia for a nine-day honeymoon Sunday. Here's hoping they party with Amy Winehouse while they're there.

Billy Mays, who took the art of the TV sales pitch to a new level, died of an heart attack Sunday morning, Florida authorities close to the situation revealed.

A medical examiner in Florida says Mays showed no evidence of head trauma, despite being struck on the head on board an airliner that made a rough landing.

That flight took place on Saturday night.

The TV advertising guru arrived home safely, despite the difficult landing, but Billy Mays was found dead early Sunday morning at his Tampa house.

Preliminary autopsy results show that Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease, Hillsborough County Medical Examiner Vernard Adams said.

Infomercial king Billy Mays (1958-2009).

Toxicology and tissue tests will take several weeks before a final cause of death is issued, he said. But the autopsy showed no evidence of trauma to the head, either external or internal, despite Billy Mays hitting it on the plane.

The autopsy showed that Mays' heart was heavier than normal because the left ventricle had enlarged, a symptom of heart disease, Adams said, also noting that investigators had ruled out prescription drug abuse as a cause of his death.

Billy Mays was taking prescription painkillers Tramadol and hydrocodone for hip pain, but pill counts showed that Mays had taken the correct amount.

A guardianship petition has been filed for Michael Jackson's children by 79-year-old Katherine Jackson, the late superstar's mother, according to reports.

She is asking the court to appoint her the guardian for all three kids. The petition states the kids have "no relationship with their biological mother."

That would be Debbie Rowe, in the case of Michael Jackson's older two children, Michael Jackson, Jr. (a.k.a. Prince Michael Jackson) and Paris Jackson.

The biological mother of his youngest child, Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a. Blanket) is not known, and believed by most sources to be a surrogate.

According to the petition, the three children of Michael Jackson are in the care of Katherine Jackson and they have "a long established relationship."

Michael Jackson's three children have been under the care of his mom Katherine (left) since his death Thursday. The future role of his ex-wife Debbie Rowe is unclear.

Katherine Jackson thinks it would be "best" to appoint her guardian of the star's offspring because they have been and are "comfortable in her care."

Debbie Rowe is named as mother of two kids (ages 12 and 11) in the petition. The petition says the value of Michael Jackson's assets is unknown.

As for Prince Michael II, Michael's third child, in the box where it says "mother" the box is checked "none." His DOB is listed as January 21, 2002.

The petition says it's "not known at this time" whether the mother (Rowe) will seek custody or if she agrees Katherine should be the legal guardian.

UPDATE: Katherine has been granted temporary guardianship of Michael's three kids. A hearing August 3 will determine if it will be permanent.

Amazingly, our headline above does not refer to the Leighton Meester sex tape, but to an entirely different kind of video involving the Gossip Girl actress.

Leighton has teamed up with the band Cobra Starship on its new single, “Good Girls Go Bad,” starring in the music video and singing one of the verses.

"Good Girls Go Bad" is the first single from Cobra Starship's new album Hot Mess. The song was co-written by Kevin Rudolf and American Idol's Kara DioGuardi.

An aspiring singer who's working on her debut album, the Gossip Girl star holds her own on what may very well become one of the summer's hit songs.

Quite literally, in his case. It was cold in there.

Asked in a new interview with Men's Health about the nude photos taken of him by photographer Greg Gorman in 2000, "To me, it's funny at this point. Whatever. It's done," Josh Duhamel says. "It was very cold in the studio, by the way."

Duhamel, who last week said aloud what many have been thinking (that Perez Hilton deserved to get punched by Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina), claims that his friends were skeptical of him going on the cover of Men's Health.

"You're going to be in Men's Health?," he recalls them saying. "You?"

The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star tells the fitness magazine that he wants to be remembered for his talent, not just his rugged good looks.

The actor also talked up married life – he tied to the knot with Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas in January – even if it means having to dodge press.

The 36-year-old also wants to start a family soon.

"I want to do good work, but having kids and a quality life outside of that is important," Duhamel tells the magazine. "If you don't have anybody around who loves you, then what's it all for? You're just lonely in the end."

This story seems far-fetched, but we must remember, Sanjaya Malakar is a sexy beast. The man exudes hotness. He is the personification of raw lust.

How could Holly Montag possibly resist?

Holly, who starred on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here after her sister Heidi Montag and her husband Spencer Pratt infamously bailed, reportedly began a romance with fellow contestant Sanjaya Malakar during her stint in Costa Rica.

What's more, The Hills "star" and the former American Idol "star" are keeping the romance alive after leaving the show! They're going on a vacation!

"Holly and Sanjaya are headed to [the Hawaiian island of] Kauai tomorrow morning so she can meet his parents," an insider tells Life & Style Weekly.

"It's getting serious!"

We can only hope this lasts, if only so Speidi can try to make Holly and Sanjaya's wedding all about them. And so Sanjaya can sing at the reception.

The autopsy on Michael Jackson's body revealed him to be in terrible shape, with only pills in his stomach when he died, according to a report out of the UK.

These findings seem to substantiate allegations made by former Jackson nanny Grace Rwaramba, however, neither story has been independently confirmed.

The Sun, which claims to have obtained the autopsy results, claims:

  • Michael Jackson's hips, thighs and shoulders were riddled with needle wounds.
  • There is unexplained bruising on Jackson's knees and on the front of his shins.
  • That he weighed just 112 pounds, a shockingly low number for a 5'10" man.
  • His body was covered by a plethora of surgery scars were thought to be the result of at least 13 plastic surgery operations.
  • The star was bald at the time of his death and suffered several broken ribs, probably from the failed attempts to revive him.
  • There were four "injection sites" near his heart, where rescue workers reportedly shot adrenaline into his heart to restart it.

The graphic below outlines what the newspaper claims it learned from the autopsy results, which did not officially determine Jackson's cause of death:

Michael Jackson Autopsy Findings

Whether or not these claims are substantiated remains to be seen, so take it all with a grain of salt. In related news, the lawyer for Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, claims now that when Murray found Jackson, he had a faint pulse.

Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, says Murray went into Michael Jackson's bedroom and saw he wasn't breathing, then immediately began administering CPR.

Chernoff told the AP, regarding his client, that "He just happened to find him in his bed, and he wasn't breathing. Mr. Jackson was still warm and had a pulse."

In response to a major story circulating, Chernoff says Murray did not prescribe or give Jackson Demerol or OxyContin at any point in his treatment of the star.

Rumors have surfaced that Jackson OD'd on Demerol. Chernoff says any drugs Murray prescribed were given in response to a specific complaint from Jackson.

The mysterious Argentine woman at the center of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford's cheating scandal has officially confessed to her relationship with him.

Maria Belen Chapur, 41, sent a statement to Buenos Aires news network C5n.

In it, she admits she and the married Mark Sanford, 48, have a relationship.

Maria Belen Chapur says she refuses to speak on her private life in greater detail and that the 200-word statement is all she plans on saying about it.

Yesterday, we reported how Mark's estranged wife, Jenny Sanford, was aware of Mark's affair with Maria and asked the Governor to dump his mistress.

This was before he went AWOL last week and embarked on his not-so-secret journey to South America to see her, which ultimately exposed the affair.

After telling his staff he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, Sanford went off the grid and traveled to Argentina. The State newspaper in South Carolina accosted him at the Atlanta airport upon his return, after which he admitted his affair.

Follow the jump for the official statement of Maria Belen Chapur, in which she addresses the affair as well as Sanford's emails to her that were leaked ...

Days after shocking the celebrity news media by wearing a ring on her ring finger (she is not engaged, despite the rumors that inevitably swirled), Britney Spears pulled another surprise yesterday, debuting a new, brunette hairstyle!

Flanked by bodyguards and new beau Jason Trawick, the blonde brunette bombshell was spotted out shopping. Oh, and she wore a ring on her middle finger this time out.
