Samantha Who? Emmy nominee Christina Applegate has been diagnosed with breast cancer, a rep for the 36-year-old actress said late Saturday.

"Christina Applegate was recently diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer. Benefiting from early detection through a doctor ordered MRI, the cancer is not life threatening," the spokesperson's statement said.

"Christina is following the recommended treatment of her doctors and will have a full recovery. No further statement will be issued at this time."

Last month Applegate signed up with the likes of Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron and more the September 8 telethon, Stand Up to Cancer - to be simulcast on CBS, NBC and ABC.

We hope Christina makes a full and speedy recovery.

Comedian Bernie Mac is in "very, very critical" condition at a Chicago hospital but is still fighting, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The revelation came after the comic's publicist told the media Saturday afternoon that she had received multiple calls from news outlets regarding the "absolutely untrue" rumors that Bernie Mac is dead.

"It is a very horrible rumor," publicist Danica Smith said. "It is absolutely untrue. Nothing has changed from yesterday."

The 50-year-old Chicago resident's hospitalization was reported Friday. Bernie was admitted for pneumonia but was responding well to treatment, and word was that he should be released soon. Here's hoping that takes place.

His publicist said the pneumonia is unrelated to Bernie Mac's sarcoidosis, a chronic disease that can inflame tissue, particularly in the lungs.

Mac's sarcoidosis has been in remission since 2005. His wife, Rhonda McCullough, has been with him at the hospital. Get well, Bernie.

Courtenay Semel isn’t a household name, but she should be.

She’s friends with all the Krazy Kardashians, y'know, and more importantly, she's rumored to have introduced Lindsay Lohan to the vagina.

Half a Nipple Exposed

Apparently Courtenay Semel is a notorious playgirl - she even supposedly stole an LA guy’s girlfriend away from him a few years back.

Until recently was, Courtenay was dating Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson. Semel’s an heir of sorts herself - her dad Terry was the CEO of Yahoo! But it looks like her most recent relationship has ended.

Why? A possible fling this week - with Tila Tequila! See below. Seems like these D-listers were caught getting a little flirty, huh!?

This girl-on-girl duo was bound to happen. When you think about it, Courtenay Semel and Tila Tequila make the perfect, unattractive lesbian couple.

The twosome partied together at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, then hit up Crown Bar where they ran into - who else - Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, who sat in a corner laughing at the lovebirds for much of the night.

Semel told the New York Post, "I don't comment on my personal life."

"Mom, why'd you pay them lawyers all that money so I could visit you just to ignore me like you always do?"

Verne Troyer's ex is firing back at the 2'8" actor after he accused her of emotional and physical abuse in a $20 million lawsuit filed yesterday.

"This lawsuit is ridiculous and riddled with lie upon lie from Verne Troyer and his camp," Holly Bannon, a rep for Ranae Shrider, said in a statement.

"The claim is, in our opinion, a shamelessly transparent attempt to generate as much publicity as he can from his less than average career in the wake of his most recent failure in The Love Guru."

Now that's a low blow. Even more so than the kind she's used to.

Thursday, lawyers for Verne Troyer said he feared for his safety after Shrider beat him, dropped him and, another time, held him against his will.

Troyer's lawyer said, in what may be the celebrity quote of the year: "When you pick up a 2'8" human being and throw him to the floor, it hurts."

But Ranae Shrider's rep says it's all bogus.

Almost a year ago, rumors were flying that Britney Spears was dating a hunky, shaggy member of her security detail named Daimon Shippen.

The same gossip popped up again this week, this time involving Spears and some dude named Lee, who's apparently one of her bodyguards.

Several celebrity gossip sites suggested Spears has been exchanging bodily fluids with Lee on a regular basis, but the rumors are absolutely not correct, Britney's manager Larry Rudolph told Access Hollywood yesterday.

“There is no truth to this,” Rudolph said. “She's 100% single.”

We're shocked.

Moreover, the man she has been spotted with, Larry says, is not even Britney Spears’ security guard, but a "staff photographer." Wait, wasn't that Adnan Ghalib? And wasn't he sleeping with the boss? We're so confused.

Amy Winehouse is no longer using drugs. According to her mom.

THG NOTE: In related news, Britney Spears has sworn off men.

Winehouse, the acclaimed and troubled singer, was hospitalized earlier this week after suffering a reaction to medication at her north London home with her father, Mitch, claiming his daughter's drink was spiked with ecstasy.

But according to the 24-year-old's mother, Janis Winehouse, the hospital visit was the result of something different - simple human error.

"The truth is that Amy ended up in hospital this week because she mixed up the medication that she's taking to help her come off drugs," she told the UK's Daily Mirror newspaper. "She took a wrong tablet."

Riiiiight. Come on, Janis and Mitch Winehouse. You can't even coordinate your ridiculous cover stories? That's Lying 101, for crying out loud.

What Your Step

The long-awaited reunion of Amy Winehouse and a street light.

Janis' absurd comments only got worse - Amy's recent diagnosis with lung disease has "encouraged her to steer clear of recreational drugs."

"I really don't think she's using now," she claimed. "Being diagnosed with the early stage of emphysema was a real jolt. A wake-up call."

So much so that she's only pictured smoking 2-3 times a day instead of the usual 20. Such enormous progress cannot be understated.

Oh, wait, that's Candace Cameron of Full House fame! Damn, girl. More than a decade after Full House ended its run, D.J. Tanner is still so fly.

What's Candace been up to while Jodie has been hosting Pants Off Dance Off, getting f*%ked up on crystal meth and marrying Cody Herpin?

Jodie Sweetin, Zoie Herpin

Not a lot. She's been married to former NHL star Valeri Bure for 12 years (!) and has cranked out three beautiful celebrity babies with him.

An evangelical Christian, Candace Cameron is currently producing and starring in The Krew, a half-hour awareness video aimed at helping children avoid and/or deal with dangerous situations in everyday life. So nice to see her!

It's a Full House reunion for Candace Cameron and Jodie Sweetin!
