In a rare story about DMX that doesn't involve him getting arrested, the rapper was brought to the emergency room at a hospital in Aventura, Florida.

He was admitted for what officials are calling "fear of a stroke."

DMX, who is averaging 2-3 court appearances per month, was supposed to be appearing in an Arizona court to face drug charges this afternoon.

Doesn't look like he's gonna make it. We hope he recovers fully from this medical situation ... so he can continue his crime sprees and mug shots!

Smiling DMX Mug Shot

As reported in the Arizona Republic, DMX was moved from a Miami Dade County on September 10 and taken to Phoenix, Arizona’s Maricopa County Jail.

In addition to facing felony drug possession charges, DMX is also expected to defend his numerous traffic violations, animal cruelty accusations, and even defrauding a hospital with an invalid Social Security number and name.

Step aside, DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak. You aren't the only sexy peeps from the Bachelor-Bachelorette universe making headlines today.

A former star of The Bachelor, Andrew Firestone, and his new wife, Ivana Bozilovic, are expecting their first child together, he told Us Weekly.

"We're just over the moon, we're so happy," the 33-year-old, who got married in July, told the mag. "It's possible it's even a honeymoon baby!"

TMI, Andrew Firestone. TMI.

In any case, we're happy as can be for the good-looking couple. Andrew Firestone and Ivana Bozilovic, 30, got engaged in April and married in July after dating since 2005. They honeymooned in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where she apparently got pregnant.

Sources have confirmed to E! Online that MTV is officially spinning off The Hills into another reality TV show starring the beautiful Whitney Port.

Emily Brill, the 20-something daughter of Steve Brill, the founder of Court TV (now known as TruTV), blogged about this big news last week:

“Last night, MTV’s The City (The Hills spinoff starring Whitney Port) shot a dinner party scene at [socialite] Olivia Palermo’s apartment. Participants included Whitney Port, Whitney’s boyfriend [Jay Lyon, we presume] and Olivia Palermo.”

We have no idea who Olivia Palermo is, really, other than a New York socialite who dates Brad Leinhardt (a.k.a. The Golden Jew). We also have no idea if she will be a co-star on The City or just happened to be in this one scene.

THE CITY STAR(S): The Hills' Whitney Port, right, and Olivia Palermo.

The City will apparently follow Whitney Port as she leaves L.A. and begins working for celebrity fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg in New York City.

It is set to begin airing in early 2009, supposedly, although MTV has not officially said this. Nor have Lauren Conrad and friends on The Hills.

EDITOR'S NOTE: While The Hills is usually totally predictable due to the deluge of paparazzi photos / spoilers online, we totally did not expect Doug Reinhardt to be cock-blocked by Brody Jenner's mom. Best surprise plot twist ever!

As this episode of The Hills gets underway, Lauren Conrad packs for a trip to Italy. The reason for the trip is never explained. Nor does it matter.

Speidi Smooch

Like five seconds after LC leaves, Stephanie Pratt arrives to tell Audrina Patridge about how Doug Reinhardt asked her out. Audrina suggests to Stephanie that she wait until Lauren gets back and just give her a little heads up.

Audrina and Lo - who are apparently getting along better these days - have lunch and Audrina her in about the Stephanie-Doug Reinhardt date sitch.

Lo is flabbergasted. Audrina says that's a no-no, then wonders aloud why Stephanie Pratt would want sloppy seconds. Audrina's words, not ours!

THE VOICE OF REASON: For once, it was Audrina Patridge talking sense into people (or at least trying to) on this typically drama-filled episode of MTV's The Hills.

That night at Goa, Audrina and Lo are chillin' when whaddaya know, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag arrive! Heidi says hi to Auds, who seems genuinely happy to see her. Lo, however, looks like she wants to stab herself in the eye with a fork.

Heidi, like, cannot believe about Doug Reinhardt and Stephanie Pratt either, then invites Audrina and Lo to a Bolthouse X-Games Party the next night. There they hang out with Justin-Bobby, who's looking like an even bigger d-bag than usual!

Blake Fielder-Civil has rejected a second chance to leave jail early — after prison bosses said he would have to go straight into rehab when he got out.

They offered to cut his stay at Suffolk’s Edmunds Hill prison by more than two months if he agreed to enter a detox facility. He turned down the deal.

Whine House

A week ago, Blake was told he would be released if he went to live with his mother, Georgette Fielder-Civil, and agreed to wear an electronic monitor.

He chose to stay behind bars rather than freedom in that case, too.

Mr. & Mrs. Blake Fielder-Civil in happier times.

Last night a friend of Amy Winehouse, Blake's wife, said:

"This will be another blow for her... Blake could have gone to rehab and sorted himself out but would rather see out his sentence in prison. All he wants is a free reign when he leaves, which means living with Amy back in Camden."

Of course, if he is turning down these chances to leave jail and get off the smack, it doesn’t exactly bode well for him and Amy when he does get out.

For now, at least, they are committed to each other. Amy's even been posting pics of Blake Fielder-Civil nude on Facebook. Whatever passes the time.

Yesterday, it was reported that Britney Spears' upcoming single “Womanizer” is being delayed, having been sent back for remixing and remastering.

Zomba Label Group/Jive Records spokesperson Wendy Washington confirmed on Monday that the single’s release has been pushed back by a week.

Drivin' Ms. Crazy

“Yes, the mix is being finalized and is expected to be done within a week,” she said of the first single from Britney's new album, Circus.

Meanwhile, an intern at Nashville’s 107.5 The River radio station who leaked a clip of “Womanizer” last week has apparently been fired.

“Don’t expect any posts from [Intern Adam Davis],” the station's site says.

“He is not here. We are sorry to inform you he is not on the air with Woody & Jim In The Morning. No details will be given at this time, however we are sure you can fish around the internet gossip blogs to figure stuff out.”

Anyway, here's the leaked clip (with a background of clips from an old Britney Spears video for some reason). You can hear why its release was pushed back:

The Bachelorette’s engaged DeAnna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak are dreaming big when it comes to life and love. But small when it comes to weddings.

“I think we want to enjoy ourselves and our day versus having to talk to a bunch of people all day long. So, we’re dwindling it down,” said the bride.

That's a surprisingly grounded view from a reality TV star. Similarly, with a wedding date of May 9, the couple says they haven't done much planning.

“I don’t know how people plan a wedding,” DeAnna Pappas said.

“I know what color I want my dresses to be, and bridesmaids’ dresses. He wants a cheesecake. And that’s about as far as we’ve gotten.”

“Our relationship obviously is our main focus right now, and then we have the wedding on top of that,” Jesse Csincsak added.

“It’s not this huge thing everyday. We’re both so busy. We don’t have time right now to plan a wedding, and we’re planning a wedding, which is crazy.”

As for The Bachelor stars on the wedding invitee list, you can count ex-Bachelorette Trista Rehn and host Chris Harrison among them.

“I’m friends with a lot of the guys from the same season I was on, Jason Mesnick being one of them,” said Csincsak, referring to his former Bachelorette cast-mate, and the future star of The Bachelor, in an interview with People.

“[Chris] Harrison is a great guy. Trista and Ryan [Sutter] have been super-influential to us. We’re psyched to have all of them there.”

The seventh season of Dancing with the Stars is set to begin tonight. This season's cast promises to be a strong one, with no shortage of sexy pairings and compelling story lines. Two staffers at The Hollywood Gossip debate, in today's Face-Off ...

WHO WILL WIN THIS SEASON OF DANCING WITH THE STARS?

Ralph on Dancing With the Stars

CODY LINLEY by Hilton Hater

I have an apartment phone, a cell phone and a wireless connection.

In other words: Cody Linley will win Dancing with the Stars this season, if only because i'll use every piece of technology at my disposal to keep him and GORGEOUS partner Julianne Hough on my television for as long as possible.

Sure, Linley and Hough voters will have competition from horny men who have proven to be fans of Kim Kardashian contorting herself into various positions on screen. But, like boyfriend Reggie Bush in goal line situations, Kim won't come through when it matters.

Other competitors are too old (Cloris Leachman) or too uncomfortable wearing clothing (Brooke Burke) to stick around for very long.

But Linley possesses the ideal combination of youth and enthusiasm, innocence and determination, to pull it off. He's appeared opposite Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana's love interest for several episodes of that hit Disney Channel series.

And that experience ought to serve the actor well.

If you can successfully court the most popular teenager on the planet, you should have no problem doing the same for millions of fans.

Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin is taking the Tori Spelling approach to getting back in the news: A useless reality series no one cares about.

"My husband and I are now shooting our reality show, which is going to be really fun," Sweetin told People. "It's following us and our new baby."

Jodie Sweetin, Zoie Herpin

"[It's all about] getting back in the business, especially for me. I think it's going to be a really exciting show. It's definitely going to show my sillier, funner side, and me being a mom. Add in this business, [and] it's going to be a fun show."

We hope the Jodie Sweetin reality show contains action like this.

Jodie Sweetin gave birth to misspelled daughter Zoie in April. The father is a dude named Cody Herpin, who married the recovering meth addict in July 2007.

What's not certain is a home for the show, which is awaiting a network. Amazing that they're not bending over backwards competing for this future smash.

"We don't [have one], but we're actually shooting it," Sweetin says. "We've shopped it with several right now, and we're in talks or negotiations with two of them."
