American Idol fans weren’t the only ones shocked and disappointed by the surprise elimination of early favorite Alexis Grace Wednesday night.

“I was like, ‘Is this a bad dream? What’s going on?’” the 21-year-old Memphis native said Thursday. “It’s hard. I’m obviously disappointed.”

The news was particularly hard for the pink-haired hopeful to swallow as it means she just missed making the cut for this summer’s American Idol tour.

“I’d set a goal for myself to make tour,” says Grace. “But everybody has their times where they don’t do exactly what they want to in life, and it only gives them more encouragement to work harder. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

For a brief moment on Wednesday’s show, it seemed Grace might get a reprieve with the new “judges save” rule, but after she forgot some words to “Jolene” and cracked a couple notes, judge Simon Cowell said it “wasn’t good enough.”

“If I’d remembered the words and been more in control of it, that might’ve helped,” Grace laments, but added. “It’s still very early in the game and I could see why they would want to save it for later. It’s better television.”

Grace says she had grown particularly close to fellow Idol Megan Joy, who’s also a young mom. The two joked that if they’d both made the tour, Grace’s daughter Ryan, 2, and Joy’s son Ryder, also 2, would become “boyfriend and girlfriend.”

Reggie Bush is into her either way (as evidenced by their sexy GQ photos), but like many celebs Kim Kardashian loves to switch up her appearance.

The reality star got edgy at the Y-3 fashion show in N.Y.C., tracing her eyes with angular black liner, but later, she gave into her soft side at the Tracy Reese show with some '50s-inspired top liner and shiny red lips.

Perhaps American Idol's Megan Joy Corkrey, who advanced to the top 10 on last night's show, acted too fast in dropping her last name to become just Megan Joy.

Instead, maybe ditching Joy altogether and going by just Megan Corkrey might be best, given the wholesome image image the Utah native has tried to project.

You see, as E! reveals, there's another little blonde cutie who happens to go by Megan Joy in the entertainment industry... the adult entertainment industry.

The non-Idol Megan Joy has appeared in classic films such as Sorority Sex Kittens: Kappa Kappa Sex, Cheerleader Auditions 6 and Desperate Housewhores 7.

Makes you wonder what didn't take place in the first six installments that warranted a seventh film in that series. Or why are we analyzing the porn industry.

Wholesome, American Idol Megan Joy and significantly less-wholesome Megan Joy.

Amazingly, this is the second time porn and American Idol have been in the same news story this month! The first stemmed from a phone voting mishap.

Producers learned they couldn’t use 1-866-IDOLS-13 for the 13th finalist, as the number was already taken by a sex line. For what? You call and let us know.

You aren't alone, though, Megan Joy. Jayden James is also the name of a porn star, although Britney Spears' son has no plans to drop his last name Federline.

How much mileage can celeb news sources get out of Rihanna and Chris Brown - and what lengths will they go to manufacture it when there's nothing good? That’s the question we’re asking after peeping up the latest gossip from Star Magazine.

The publication claims, verbatim:

"The leaked police photo of Rihanna's battered face stunned and horrified the world. But Star has learned that the pop princess worries that other shocking images could go public - wild sex tapes of her with abusive boyfriend Chris Brown!"

All together now: LOL.

Chris Brown Ogles Rihanna

An unreliable celeb gossip source says these two boinked on tape.

“Rihanna has no issues with her sexuality,” reveals a supposed, in-the-know Star insider. “But she’d be mortified if her friends and family found this out!”

Way to blab to Star, then, Mr. or Mrs. made-up anonymous source.

We realize that Rihanna sex tape rumors may help keep a popular story on the front page, but aren’t we all about to OD on all the insanity at some point?

At the very least, you could draw the line at making $h!t up, Star.

The Hollywood Gossip hereby moves that we as a celebrity news community focus our efforts on Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes for a bit. At some point, even Chris Brown deserves a break. Not from the legal system, just from us.

Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham weighed in on the flap over the weight of Meghan McCain - blaming "the Obama attack dogs" for trying to manufacture a feud.

"Let the record show I never called Meghan McCain fat. She isn't," Ingraham said. "It's another left-wing attempt to silence any criticism of the liberal agenda."

Unfortunately for the talk show host, that's not true. The audio record does show that she ridiculed the 24-year-old McCain on her radio show on March 11.

In a valley girl accent undoubtedly meant to mock Meghan McCain, Ingraham said, "I was really hoping that I was going to get that role in the Real World, but then I realized that, well, they don't like plus-sized models." Oooh, that one hurt.

McCain responded on the view that critics can kiss her fat ass.

John McCain's daughter and her chief talk show critic.

In the past few weeks, Meghan McCain has angered conservatives with her attacks on "extremists" in the Republican party, including Ann Coulter.

"Okay, Meghan. Do you think that anyone would be talking to you if you weren't kind of cute and you weren’t the daughter of John McCain," said Ingraham. "Or would just think that you were just another Valley Girl gone awry?"

Whose side are you on?

Does Stephen Colbert use Twitter?

It was an innocent question posed by Meredith Vieira on the Today show this morning. Innocent until Colbert coined a hilarious, past-tense usage of Twitter.

You can probably figure it out, but play the video below to hear it for yourself, and listen for Vieira's reaction to his response, something to effect of "Oh, God" ...

Earlier this year, Britney Spears was taken to task by Fox News for her new single, which features X-rated lyrics and a title that is really just the f-word in disguise.

At the beginning and end of her controversial If U Seek Amy video, Britney and her peeps cleverly fired back, setting up the screen, writing the dialogue and casting an anchor to look exactly like the same segment from the cable news channel.

The similarities between the music video's faux news anchor and Fox News' Megyn Kelly are highlighted in the clip below, from "America's Newsroom" yesterday.

She then invites Britney to come on the program and defend herself. Meow ...

Funny stuff. She's probably a little busy with her Circus tour, and her handlers would never let her near a live interview anyway, but it's a fun feud to imagine.

Amid reports that he is sleeping with LeAnn Rimes, his married Northern Lights co-star, the married Eddie Cibrian issued a statement to clear the air.

"It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship," the recent Ugly Betty guest star said (ironically, his character, Coach Diaz, was also having an affair on the show).

A friend of LeAnn Rimes also says that the country star, 26, and Cibrian, 35 – who is married to model Brandi Glanville and has two sons, Mason, 5, and Jake, almost 2 – aren't in a relationship. Rimes is married to songwriter Dean Sheremet.

Rimes didn't confirm, but certainly didn't deny an affair in a statement issued on her website yesterday. So what gives? Are they hooking up or not?

Well, Us Weekly, which first broke the story, has posted a video of LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian kissing, holding hands and sucking on each other's fingers.

All during a March 7 date at Mosun and Club M in Laguna Beach, Calif.

Twenty-two seconds into the clip, Cibrian arrives and the restaurant and they walk in hand-in-hand. Then they're seated - as seen in the center left of the frame - and proceed to hold hands (36 seconds) and kiss (1:47).

At the 2:10 mark, LeAnn Rimes suggestively sucks on Eddie Cibrian's finger. Yowza. They leave together shortly after. Us claims to have the $95 receipt for their dinner, which was paid for by Cibrian on his credit card and signed by him.

Ouch, Eddie! Follow the jump to see the video for yourself ...

Rihanna's late night on the town last night ended with another run-in with the police - but this time it was her driver, not Chris Brown, answering questions.

Shortly after 2:00 AM PDT, cops pulled over her driver for no front license plate (who ever heard of license plates on a car), and for overly tinted windows.

Rihanna was sitting in the backseat of the vehicle while LAPD issued the ticket, with security standing guard around the huge SUV to prevent good photos ...

Rihanna Pulled Over!

Rihanna was totally in the back of this tricked-out Escalade!

RiRi had just wrapped a night of partying at Les Deux. For the first time since her savage beating, Rihanna went out sans shades, as you can see below.

No sign of good ol' Chris Brown, who she is "taking a break" from, whatever that means. Maybe it means they aren't broken up officially, but aren't dating.

Nothing to see here ... but please, look at me anyway! A smiling, attention-loving Miley Cyrus heads to the B2V hair Salon in West Hollywood, California.

She tipped off the paparazzi for her shopping date the other day, and it wouldn't surprise us if she did again here, despite how "casual" she's dressed.

Looks to be flaunting her assets a little bit, doesn't she?

Up Close and Miley

We know it's pretty harmless. But while these images aren't on the same level as the Miley Cyrus cleavage pics from last week's jogging excursion, she ain't exactly trying to cover up, either. We're just sayin'. Girl really likes attention.

Not that Justin Gaston is complaining, of course. Click to enlarge more pictures of Miley out, about and pretending to be surprised at the media presence:
