While Lauren Conrad gets her own show, cosmetics endorsement, fashion line, and a $2.2 million mansion, her BFF Lauren “Lo” Bosworth gets ... birth control.

Hey, when you're the least famous non-star of The Hills, you take what you can get! Lo has become the new face (body?) of the Yaz birth control pill!

She will be hawking the product in Canada only, BTW.

Lauren Bosworth is currently hanging out up north, dishing on Yaz’s skillz in cutting out PMS-related headaches and cramps, and all that good stuff.

In a statement released by Bayer, who makes Yaz, Lo Bosworth said:

“As a ‘Gen Yer’ working in the entertainment industry, I need to be disciplined. I need to make sure I’m taking care of myself so nothing interrupts my day.”

Sure, Lo. Whatever that means. If it means making sure you don't get knocked up with the spawn of Jason Wahler or Justin-Bobby, we're all for it, Go, girl.

Hey, if she keeps looking as good as she does in these candid photos, taken when she went to pick up some take-out recently, it'll only be a matter of time until one of those Hills manwhores tries to go there. Click to enlarge ...

The Hollywood Gossip's recap of The Bachelor is an editorialized rundown of the most memorable moments, with points awarded or deducted as we see fit. We've already heard our Bachelor babe's unique insight on last night's show. Now, the recap ...

Chris Harrison: "Two of you will go on a date with Jason, but only one will return..." First ever Bachelor cage match? Sadly no, but fun imagery. Plus 8.

Jason Mesnick Image

Nikki's true colors shine: "Stephanie already had a one-on-one date with Jason... she already had a man, had his daughter and, sadly, he died." Loosely translated: "The universe does not want Stephanie to fall in love. Gimme rose!" Minus 15.

Plus 9 for Nikki giving viewers a half-second warning before the waterworks hit: "I literally wanna cry..." Enter: tears! We literally wanna change the ch-

The General Hospital thing was fun and all, but Minus 10 for ABC blowing a GOLDEN opportunity to plug Dancing with the Stars. There was a dancing scene!

Speaking of which ... Jason Mesnick on the GH set: "I couldn't believe it. We walked in on a scene being filmed by Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms." (NOTE: I heard of these people 15 seconds ago when I read the cue card). Minus 10 more.

Guys will be guys: "I need to make sure it's not just [Molly's] eyes that I'm attracted to..." Plus 27 for hornball Jason's great taste in women.

Plus 20 for the unnecessary suspense created by ABC, such as when Jason picks up the rose and tells Molly Malaney how much he'd like to get to know her, but ...... [cue dramatic music] ...... there's more he'd like to learn about her! Yay!

Group dating awkwardness on a level only The Bachelor can attain.

Words you can only hear on The Bachelor: "The last time I did talk to Jason was when I was crying and when I was vomiting." - Shannon. Minus 2.

Plus 11 for the double entendre-laden exchanges involving Molly Malaney's return from her one-on-one date with Jason Mesnick. Jason: "Thanks for coming..." Fellow contestant to Molly: "Did he stay up the whole time?"

Megan on the lead-up to the rose ceremony: "This is getting harder each week. Literally, 300-400 percent harder." That makes literally no sense. Minus 200.

Not only is Melissa Rycroft hot, and in a natural way, but she has a natural way about her. She managed to be honest, nervous and emotional without being annoying! Plus 125, because a Molly-Melissa final could not be more obvious.

Odds on Shannon murdering Jason and/or the eventual winner - 3:1. Minus 4.

Plus 100 for the not-giving-out-the-final-rose twist at the ceremony. All of those girls sucked, and Jason knew it, opting for quality over quantity. Well, at least by The Bachelor standards. Guy is still dating five chicks at the frickin' same time.

Lamest exchanges of the night: 1. Following Megan's rooftop tears: "You're such a great person..." "You're such a great person!" 2. Jason to Shannon: "I know you're real...." Shannon to Jason: "I'm so real." Minus 7 per.

TOTAL +47! A quick list of who's in and out on The Bachelor...

Roses received: Molly (one-on-one date); Stephanie (two-on-one-date); Naomi (group date); Melissa and Jillian (rose ceremony).

Sacked by Jason Mesnick: Nikki (date); Megan, Lauren and Shannon (ceremony).

Whitney Port recently moved from The Hills to The City. It's a new City, but the drama certainly hasn't been dialed down since our girl moved East. On the contrary.

Taking time to discuss last night's episode, entitled "He Never Said He Had a Girlfriend," Whitney focused on the escalating fight between Adam Senn and his model girlfriend Allie, which we saw unfold in last week's episode.

Here's Whitney's take, as written on her official site ...

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

In "He Never Said He Had a Girlfriend," the conflict continued between Allie and Adam. Jay and Adam threw an art gallery opening and the party had a huge turnout!

Everyone made an appearance, including Samantha's friend Catarina, who decided after a lunch chat with Samantha that it would be best to confront Allie and let her know EXACTLY what happened between her and Adam.

After hearing what Catarina had to say, Allie ran to the bathroom in tears with Adam not far behind. They left the party and after arguing outside went their separate ways.

Later on in the episode, Jay and I discussed the situation in my apartment. [Jay Lyon] had faith in his friend and chose to trust that Adam wouldn't betray Allie like that. 

I, on the other hand, was a bit more skeptical.

Ad ad featuring a bevy of hot girls who are definitely not vegetarians in real life unable to resist the temptation of veggies was deemed too hot for the Super Bowl.

NBC rejected the video because of concerns over "rubbing one's pelvic region with pumpkin," a woman "making love to herself with broccoli," and much more.

It's definitely worth a look if you want a quick laugh, or if you're the type who gets turned on by vegetarianism more than, say, Girls Next Door Playboy covers.

Take a look at the seductive, banned PETA commercial - which had been scheduled to run during Sunday's big game until NBC nixed it - after the jump ...

Jason Mesnick, take note. This is how you do group dating.

Russell Brand attended the Akon wrap party at Number 5 Cavendish Club in London last night, and wouldn't you know it, he left with not one, but two ladies.

They went straight to his North London home after departing.

The Justin-Bobby clone has considerably more game than his Hills doppelganger... and his pair of conquests might dress even more skankily than Audrina...

Proving that Britney fans are seriously devoted 10 years after their idol rose to stardom as a faux-virginal, pop-singing tease, Taylor Swift has proclaimed her "unwavering devotion" to Britney Spears in a rant on her MySpace blog on Friday.

When the country crooner's mother decided to rearrange her stuff, Taylor had a panic attack. The reason? A Britney Spears poster. Here's how she describes it:

Ready to Spank Something

"While I was in L.A. my mom reorganized my bathroom... But then I turned around and was startled by something... Where was my Britney Spears poster.... No, this can't be right... WHERE is it?!? I searched the room frantically for a few seconds before finding it's new spot. My Britney Spears poster (from 6th grade) had been relocated to my bedroom, which is another AMAZING upgrade. This way, I see it more often and it more proudly displays my unwavering devotion to Britney Spears."

SWIFT DEVOTION: From her rise to fame in the late 1990s to her train wreck period to her recent comeback, Britney's had a loyal fan in the talented Taylor Swift.

Unfortunately, The Hollywood Gossip misplaced its Britney Spears 2006 calendar when we closed our old office. However, we're pretty sure this was the December pic.

Because our standard weekly recaps are clearly not enough to quench your thirst for The Bachelor gossip, commentary and insight, The Hollywood Gossip's own Bachelor Babe will be sharing her thoughts on each episode with us as well.

This week, she simply offers a few (hundred, at times) words for each of the aspiring Mrs. Jason Mesnicks, and for the hunky Bachelor himself ...

Malaney-Mesnick Wedding

Nikki – Sorry you got kicked off I guess. In the future you should know that you’re never going to get a guy by being so weepy, your boyfriend of 11 years should have told you that. Try laughing instead, but don’t turn into one of those super giggly girls. No one will like you then either. 

Molly – You are so cute and adorable. I wish we could be best friends and get fast food together. We’re like a shake and fries, girl. And btw, it’s not the Walk of Shame, it’s the Walk of FAME! You looked great in those red shorts.

Lauren – Quick word of advice: dominating a guy and threatening to be “pissed” if you don’t get the rose doesn’t seem to be the best plan. Maybe try singing again. If nothing else, the “real” song you wrote sounded like something The Bachelor could pick up as a theme song… Before you leave force yourself on a network exec and have them pick it up. (Okay, I didn’t come up with that - my friend Nicole did, but I think she’s right. They did it for Daughtry on American Idol…)

Crazy, insane Lauren from New Jersey gets pissed at Jason Mesnick during a faux General Hospital scene. Later, she would act similarly in real life.

Melissa – It was nice that Jason pulled you aside on the group date. And your kiss when you were talking seemed sincere and sweet. I think Jason really likes you. And I like you too. Melissa Mesnick does sound good, although Molly Mesnick has a nice ring too.

Megan – OMG! (Really Megan, you shouldn’t be saying that if you’re over the age of 12). Judging from your General Hospital performance, I wouldn’t be surprised if you have a few kissing movies in your past, if you know what I’m saying… we’ll look for those in the near future as a desperate attempt to get on TV again.

Amy Winehouse has reportedly moved into a secluded villa on the island of St. Lucia as a budding romance with her hot fitness instructor heats up.

That's right, she's ditched Josh Bowman. This is someone new.

Last week the booze-guzzling singer swapped her hotel on the Caribbean isle for more private, rented accommodation after hooking up with her new fella.

He is known only as Andrew.

Who is he? Who knows. But a source in Amy Winehouse’s camp reveals this: “Amy has a habit for falling for guys very quickly. She’s head-over-heels with Andrew and doesn’t want anything coming in the way of their relationship."

“She initially left the hotel so that she could have some privacy but now she’s moved again to ensure that no lenses will uncover what she’s getting up to.”

Shaken Up

That means no more Amy Winehouse topless pics, we guess.

Winehouse, who has been on holiday since, well, forever, has already snared, devoured and spit out rugby player-turned-actor Josh Bowman pre-Andrew.

Last week she blew £10,000 on a single night out on St. Lucia as she treated at least 30 fellow holidaymakers to a buffet of crack champagne, wine and food.

She's still married, of course, to that scrawny, drug-addled, jailbird husband of hers, Blake Fielder-Civil. But that's neither here nor there. More Amy pics ...

Seen without her trademark stripper heels for once in her frickin' life, the walking advertisement for plastic surgery, Shauna Sand hit the beach in Miami.

The Playmate's guest of honor? Her ex-husband Romain Chavent!

The pair went on a romantic walk Sunday night, kissing for the delight of nearby celebrity gossip photographers with no bigger stars to shoot...

Romain Chavent and Shauna Sand

Will this rekindled romance last longer than their 19-month marriage? Will he take naked photos of her daughters and hit her in the boobs again?

We may never know. At least not until her next 911 call.

In the meantime, click to enlarge more pics of the hot, fake-looking ex-stepmom of Shayne Lamas and her Hasselhoff-wannabe husband (or ex, who cares) ...

Ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne of the Bahamas - the second suspect in the John Travolta extortion case - was charged Monday with attempting to extort and conspiracy to commit extortion against the actor, according to reports.

Lightbourne, 47, allegedly tried to extort $25 million from John Travolta and his family - for what, we don't know. At his arraignment, he pleaded not guilty.

The details of the alleged extortion plot - which involved Travolta's late son, Jett Travolta, 16, who died earlier this month - have still not been made public.

Authorities also arrested Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater on charges of abetment to extort and conspiracy to extort. She was released Friday on $40,000 bail. Bridgewater - who has since resigned - said she plans to fight "untrue and unfair charges."

Lastly, the cops had detained former tourism minister Obie Wilchcombe, but he "has not been charged," at this time, says Minister of National Security Tommy Turnquest. "He was not arrested; he was questioned on Friday."

In an interview, Obie Wilchcombe, a longtime friend of Travolta, denied any criminal involvement and said he was only trying to help the actor and his family.

Lightbourne was quoted in celebrity news reports about trying to revive Jett Travolta, who died at the family's vacation home in Grand Bahama January 2.
