MTV sucks.

Sorry, but it's true. First, with no notice, they decide to air a new episode of The Hills as a special, Sunday-night lead-in for the VMAs. Hella weak.

Even worse, though? Plugging the VMAs with a gigantic banner that took up half the screen. And since half The Hills takes place in clubs - necessitating subtitles for the conversations - that banner made them unreadable. Nice work, assclowns.

Lastly, the network spent the entire week promoting an exciting fight that landed Brody Jenner in jail, with Doug Reinhardt in tow. This, of course, was only discussed in the last 12 seconds. Wait 'til next episode again, we suppose!

Eat ass, MTV.

Anyway, from what we could discern, Lauren Conrad and Co. headed to the City of Sin for Frankie Delgado's birthday. For whatever reason, that turned into one huge drama-fest as Brody rode Stephanie Pratt hard the entire time.

We don't mean that in a sexual way. Heavens no. He was just bashing her over and over again for being shady. Brody Jenner either has a huge grudge for some reason, or was prompted by the producers to harp on this. Or both.

At dinner, Stephane Pratt finally confronted Brody Jenner to try to figure out why he told Lauren Conrad not to be friends with her.

Bristol Palin may be pregnant, but the political scandal of the year still belongs to John Edwards and his now-admitted mistress, Rielle Hunter.

Despite Edwards campaign aide Andrew Young's claim that he, not the former North Carolina Senator, fathered the baby of Hunter, he hasn't given her a cent, according to research from the National Enquirer, which broke the story.

The 44-year-old Hunter is still getting cash from somewhere, but no child support or other monetary compensation has been made by Young.

Andrew Young said last year - when Rielle Hunter was seven months pregnant and the scandal first broke - that he was the baby's father.

Frances Quinn Hunter

But when Rielle gave birth in late February, no father was listed on the birth certificate of her daughter, the adorable Frances Quinn Hunter (above).

When the Hunter-Edwards connection was first being uncovered, Andrew Young sprung into action, presumably under Edwards' command - helping Rielle leave N.Y. City and hide out for a while in North Carolina.

Now Andrew Young has fallen completely off the planet.

Britney Spears opened up, then won big at last night's 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, taking home three awards, including Video of the Year.

She kicked off the show in a pre-taped skit with actor Jonah Hill - yes, he of the laugh-out-loud Superbad quotes. That movie was so funny.

This skit? Not so much. Here's the video ...

Yeah. Fortunately, the night got better for Britney after that. After the segment, Spears, in sexy, sparkly halter dress, walked on stage as "Baby One More Time" blared. She then won Best Female Video for "Piece of Me."

"I'm speechless... Oh, my goodness, thank you!" an elated, giggly Spears told the crowd. "I first wanna thank God for blessing me like this. My family ... my two beautiful boys [Sean and Jayden] for inspiring me everyday."

She later took home the award for Best Pop Video, telling the crowd again that she was "speechless" and thanking longtime manager Larry Rudolph. Britney Spears then closed out the night by winning Video of the Year.

"I'm in shock right now," she said. "I want to dedicate this to all my fans."

Wordle is an Internet site often used to generate “word clouds” from text - speeches, news reports, blogs, other websites, and what have you.

The clouds assign greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text, giving you an idea of what's hot and what's not.

In our case, given who and what's been making news, the results aren't surprising. Here's the site's snapshot of The Hollywood Gossip over the weekend...

You knew it was coming.

Reportedly miffed that John McCain chose a woman (Sarah Palin) for the Republican Vice Presidential nomination whose name is not Heidi Montag, The Hills' villain you love to hate has launched a last-ditch, third-party campaign for President.

While they say voting for a third party is throwing your vote away, it looks like Spencer Pratt's bid is gaining at least a little headway among independents and disaffected Republicans. Click on the photo below for the full news story ...

Can a Spencer Pratt candidacy at least play spoiler for John McCain?

The ex-wife of a man said to have had an affair with Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin tells it's "absolutely, completely false."

"I can tell you this with 1,000 percent certainty, Sarah Palin never had an affair," said Debbie Richter when reached on Friday afternoon.

Palin as a Mother

The rumor that her now ex-husband, Scott Richter, had an affair with Sarah Palin gained momentum after the National Enquirer reported she had been romantically involved with one of Todd Palin's former business associates.

The John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign threatened to sue over the story.

One celebrity news tabloid claims that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had an affair with a former business associate of Todd Palin. Seems like a bit of a stretch to us.

It would be easy to dismiss as pure tabloid trash, but this next piece of information makes the latest Palin scandal at least a little intriguing.
