As she awaits a decision on whether she will lose her crown to Tami Farrell Monday, embattled Miss California Carrie Prejean wants to put a lid on the nude photos that sparked the controversy surrounding her - immediately.

A cease and desist letter was fired off from her lawyer to thedirty.com, demanding that the site take down the Carrie Prejean topless pics it posted last week.

In the letter to the site, her attorney makes the claim that "One of the displayed images of Ms. Prejean was illegally taken under false pretenses when she was a 17-year-old minor and unable to consent to its creation."

Unable to consent? Is she not a model? Is this a photo shoot or a candid image she was not aware was being taken? What are we missing here?

Even more intriguingly, the letter goes on to say: "The other image depicts Ms. Prejean's likeness but is not an actual photograph. It is an electronic manipulation ["photoshopped'] of her image created without her consent."

Basically, the beauty queen's camp is issuing threats claiming that the first topless pic was taken without her consent, and that the other one is not even real.

Pretty flimsy argument if you ask us - and the site that posted them.

The response from thedirty.com:

"Your client's publicity rights are substantially inferior to the right of the public to consider, discuss, agree and/or disagree with Ms. Prejean's actions and views."

"This is not conduct for which your client's consent is required."

Translation: Thanks for trying, but not gonna happen.

Amy Winehouse's lackluster comeback gig was mercifully nixed by a disgruntled fan.

That being mother nature.

Heavy rain forced the troubled British singer to cut short a performance at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival on Friday, her first live performance in 2009.

The singer and her band "tried to soldier on" despite the storm causing sound and lighting problems, but it was simply not to be on this day.

Hopefully her new boy toys were there to comfort her.

"Amy is very disappointedm as St. Lucia has been wonderful to her and its people have welcomed her with open arms, but circumstances beyond anyone's control meant this special show did not go as planned," said her spokesman, Chris Goodman.

Fans weren't exactly in tears over the abrupt cancellation.

"What a wasted talent," a concertgoer said, adding that she was booed at one point. "She is on a one-way road to destruction; it's such a shame."

During the hour-long set, Amy Winehouse forgot lyrics, appeared distracted and inadvertently flashed her underwear before walking off the stage.

At one point, the 25-year-old even said, "Sorry, I'm bored."

"It was disappointing," said another fan interviewed by the BBC. "It is very sad to see, but she is obviously not fit to be on stage."

Last week, Winehouse was hospitalized in St. Lucia for the 245th time, collapsing due to "dehydration" and "exhaustion," whatever those are.

According to E! News, the co-directors of the Miss California USA pageant, Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, will be holding a press conference on Monday to announce their decision on gay marriage-opposing, semi-nude title holder Carrie Prejean.

Officials are in talks with the 21-year-old beauty queen's reps to determine whether she should keep the coveted tiara due to possible contract violations.

Carrie Prejean has been a lightning rod for controversy since she lost out - she was first runner-up - to Kristen Dalton at the Miss USA Pageant April 19.

First, there were her public appearances with same-sex marriage opponents, then sexy topless and underwear pics she took as a teen and did not disclose.

Many believe that her anti-gay marriage stance, revealed after judge Perez Hilton asked about it during the finals, cost Prejean the Miss USA title.

Will Carrie Prejean lose her crown to Miss California runner-up Tami Farrell? Speculation has been brewing for days, and on Monday, her fate will be announced.

Either way, she's still Miss California - unless contest owner Donald Trump decides to strip her of that crown. Ultimately, the decision rests with him alone.

Carrie's father, Will, predicts she will keep her crown. He also said that Sarah Palin and the gay community are both on her side, though, so who knows.

If there's a precedent for this sort of thing, it may have been set in 2006 when Miss USA Tara Conner was not stripped of her crown by Trump despite alcohol, drug and girl-on-girl action photos that leaked to the Internets.

However, one indicator of which way Trump & Co. are leaning this time around could be that Tami Farrell, the first runner-up in the Miss California pageant, will be on hand at Monday's press conference. So stay tuned.

What do you think? Should Carrie Prejean lose her title?

Whitney Port and Jay Lyon recently broke up, but are rumored to be back together (or at least spending time together) recently. But for those hoping to see Whitney reconcile with her ex on MTV's The City, don't bank on it.

The Aussie hasn't even signed up for the second season yet.

While Whitney's other friends, Olivia Palermo and Erin Lucas, are locked in for another round of semi-real drama in the Big Apple, Jay says he has yet to commit to the show - and therefore his chance to get back with Whitney Port.

"I’m still deciding," said Jay Lyon, who is also the singer for Tamarama. "I’m still talking with our managers and working out if it’s the right decision for [Tamarama] right now. That's the main priority at the moment and always will be."

Port at Paley Fest

Perhaps for good reason. The Australian band, which Jay formed with Nicolas "Pottsy" Potts, played at an event with White Tie Affair and Blue October this week, and have recently inked a deal to make an album with top producer David Kahne.

They're working on their debut album starting next week.

Jay or no Jay, The Hills spinoff will be back for its second season later this year. Click to enlarge more photos of the heart throb and Whitney Port ...

Earlier this week, a Gretchen Rossi nude picture was "leaked" online, depicting the Real Housewives of Orange Country in the buff and having a grand ol' time with herself. Further elaboration is not necessary at this time.

Now, Bravo has released some pictures of Rossi and her beau, Slade Smiley (yes, that's his name) doing some light weekend shopping. You know, just picking up a few essentials, such as a hot pink, form-fitting plastic catsuit:

The unparalleled sophistication that is Gretchen Rossi fashion.

Wow. Spicing up the relationship is great, but we don't even know what to say about this getup. Imagine how she'd feel if she knew there were cameras outside.

Oh, right, the attention whore is doing this because there are cameras outside. Now it makes sense. Forgot who we were talking about for a brief instant there.

Fans of the Real Housewives know that Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley are a match made in heaven. And if you aren't convinced yet, click to enlarge more pictures of her trying on classy S&M costumes below. The black one's nice too ...

Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire and his wife, Jennifer Meyer, welcomed their second child Friday, the actor's rep confirmed to People magazine.

"I can confirm the Maguires had a baby boy today, and the family is healthy and happy," said Kelly Bush on behalf of the happily married pair.

Tobey Maguire, 33, and Jennifer Meyer, 31, are also parents to daughter Ruby Sweetheart, 2 1/2. The couple met in 2003 and married in 2007.

In November, a source said they were "thrilled" to be expecting a second child. "They can't wait to expand their family with another little one."

They met in 2003 while Maguire was shooting the movie Seabiscuit, and wed in Hawaii in September 2007, shortly after Ruby was born.

Congrats to this happy, seemingly normal couple!

Okay. So a batch of nude photos of Rihanna, or what is supposedly Rihanna, have started floating around the Internets as of late Friday afternoon.

Here's the deal:

  • There are seven pictures in all, hosted by imagehaven.com. We do not recommend you actually go there unless you want about 27 viruses.
  • All seven shots appear to be self-taken in the same area.
  • The alleged Rihanna pics show various body parts, including two close ups of what is clearly Rihanna's face and a third Rihanna photo showing her from head to knee, reflected in a bathroom mirror with "I love you" scrawled on it.
  • The four shots that do not include Rihanna's head in them include two of a bare bottom in a mirror, which could belong to almost any human being.
  • One depicts a hand with black nail polish clasping bare cheek.
  • The last shows Rihanna nude (supposedly) and taking a photo of herself with one pierced breast exposed and a pink towel over her shoulder.

UPDATE: According to TMZ, RiRi's label, Island Def Jam, sent a letter to at least one site demanding the photos be removed, calling them a violation of "the Artist's rights." It does not deny (or confirm) if the pics are really Rihanna.

We'll have more for you on this story as it develops, but right now, the evidence that these are actually Rihanna nude pics remains kind of weak.
