Two episodes of The Hills last night. One awesome performance by Whitney Port and plenty of Pratt family drama to catch up on. Let's get down to it.

In the first episode, "Back to L.A.," Lauren Conrad returns home from Paris and tells Audrina Patridge all about her travels, while Whitney Port heads into Lisa Love's office at Teen Vogue to tell her she's outta here.

Whitney goes on a job interview for a stylist's position with Kelly Cutrone of People's Revolution. The interview is tough, but our girl gets it! Yay!

At her office, Heidi Montag explains to some random co-worker that she does not want to break up with Spencer Pratt .... but at the same time, he sure shouldn't think about seeing other people ... but he needs to move out. Pronto.

Spencer complains to his sister, Stephanie Pratt, about moving out and says he's considering dating other girls as a result. Hopefully ones who haven't had about 12 plastic surgeries. Seriously, have you seen Heidi lately?

Heidi Montag gets wind of the fact that Spencer is thinking about dating others - via Stephanie - and fish-lips does not take kindly to this revelation.

Spencer Pratt has worn this look of bewilderment for three episodes now.

Lauren and Audrina head to Les Deux where they meet up with Frankie Delgado and his boyfriend, Brody Jenner. Just kidding. They're not together. Though they are always together. What is this Frankie guy's deal, anyway?

Anyway, having heard about Cora Skinner, LC gives Brody the cold shoulder and asks him where his "girlfriend" is. Brody plays dumb, but Lauren is wicked upset and not buying it. Brody then gets pissed storms outta the club.

Lauren Conrad and Lauren Bosworth (Lo) have breakfast and LC admits that Brody has a way of making her feel like she's not good enough.

Lo tells LC that she's being ridiculous and that Brody should be chasing her, and that she has to figure out a way to just be friends with him.

A bitter Spencer packs up his stuff at the ol' apartment, while pouty Heidi watches. As he walks out he says "enjoy your space." Ohhh, snap!

Finally, Whitney Port packs up her stuff at the Teen Vogue offices, reminiscing with LC about all their good times. They say goodbye and we shed a tear.

The job opportunities keep coming in for Britney Spears.

Yesterday, we reported that Britney's father and guardian, Jamie Spears, wants her to continue working in TV to keep her pants-hating ass out of trouble.

This followed a successful stint on How I Met Your Mother and a comment from 30 Rock star Tina Fey that she'd welcome Britney on that series.

Well, it turns out the President of PETA - yes, the ca-razzzy animal rights peeps - was so impressed with Britney's role as a receptionist on How I Met Your Mother that she wants her to be a PETA receptionist for just one hour.

The group wrote an open letter to Britney Spears, stating:

"We have criticized you in the past for contributing to the dog overpopulation crisis and wearing real fur, but perhaps now that your own crisis has abated, a new day calls for a new relationship, a new outlook, and a new understanding."

The always-entertaining group says it will donate $1,000 to a children's charity of her choice should Britney Spears take them up on their offer.

Hopefully this is just a ploy by PETA to abduct and free Britney's poor Yorkshire terrier, London. Poor son of a bitch looks pretty desperate these days.

After last week's New York Times preview of The Hills called Heidi Montag a feminist hero and lightly bashed Lauren Conrad, the latter told the Canadian entertainment site Dramarama that she has her own career, thank you.

Not only was LC's blonder, bitchier, fake-nose-and-breasted ex-BFF crowned with that title in an article last Monday, but Lauren was advised to "learn from Heidi" instead of "pining" for swaggering Hollywood player Brody Jenner.

A Lovely Lauren Conrad

"You show me the girl that is not affected when a guy that she likes, likes another girl," Lauren said in an interview at Holt Renfrew HQ in Toronto.

The 22-year-old had left drama in L.A. for the weekend, coming to Canada to work - talking up her line of skirts and summer dresses, now being sold at Holt Renfrew.

"I don't think it makes me any less of a feminist because my emotions are effected," The Hills star continues whilst promoting her fashion line.

"I think that I'm very independent and I don't let guys effect my life. I think in the past I have, and I've learned from it. I don't depend on men. I have my own career."

As for the supposed wisdom to be gleaned from her rival Heidi Montag, Lauren Conrad lowers her voice to a whisper. "I will keep my comments to myself," she says mischievously. "I think that's really funny."

While Heidi lunges for the brass ring by pursuing a singing career, Lauren is taking a less fame-grubbing route with her fashion line, Lauren Conrad.

Rather than just lending her name to some random brand, the clothing line is actually the result of six years experience in the fashion business.

"My parents gave me a really hard time about being lazy," Lauren says. "I didn't do very well in high school. Not interested. But once I start working on something I'm really passionate about and love, I will just keep going until I can't."

The clothing line's inspired by her life growing up in Laguna Beach, Calif., then moving into the schmoozey L.A. celebrity scene.

There's only thing topic off limits during the interview - the racy Audrina Patridge topless photos that have leaked onto the Internet in March.

Come to think of it, the headline for this post might as well have been Crazy Joe Simpson Panics at Potential Loss of Precious Paychecks.

Okay, maybe he's a little worried about his daughter's health. But it's mostly gotta be about the money at this stage for the father/pimp.

Jess Simps

Jessica Simpson was hospitalized in Los Angeles for a kidney infection, her rep said, but the singer "has been released and is doing fine."

Simpson, 27, went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Friday after suffering a fever. Boyfriend Tony Romo was not present, unfortunately.

Earlier this month, Simpson took a trip to Iraq where she performed for the troops. She is currently working on a country album.

On The Bachelor last night, host Chris Harrison informs the girls that there will be one group date and two one-on-one dates. If the lucky lady does not receive a rose on her one-on-one date, though, she will immediately be sent home.

Holly is the first to receive an invitation to a private date with Matt - a private premiere of the new Patrick Dempsey movie, Made of Honor.

Before they could head in to watch the movie, they faced an onslaught of faux celebrity news media, answering questions and posing for pics.

The two cuddled in the theater. After the film, Matt Grant took Holly back to a hotel room where he tried to get a handle on her feelings for him.

Matt worried that they were too comfortable with each other and maybe, were even missing a spark, but a little later on, they ended up in the hot tub together where they made out. Matt Grant gave Holly a rose. HOT!

Ten women find out that they'll be heading on a group date to play rugby. The only woman not invited was Shayne Lamas, who got a one-on-one date.

Matt was impressed with how the women played and invited them to his place for a party. There, Matt spent some time with Robin and kissed her in the hot tub. He also made his way into a room with Kelly, where he got a massage.

Grant. Matt Grant.

At the end of this sexy night, Matt Grant decided to give out a rose to Robin, for impressing him both on and off the rugby field. Nice!

Next, Matt headed out on his one-one date with ca-razy Shayne, where she finally revealed that her dad is Lorenzo Lamas (and brother is AJ Lamas)!

Matt Grant said he has concerns that because she's an actress, her intentions are not sincere. Shayne Lamas changed his mind and the two kissed.

Ultimately, he gave Shayne Lamas a rose, meaning Holly, Robin, and Shayne are already safe pre-ceremony. Matt Grant hands out the remaining roses to:

  1. Amanda
  2. Ashlee
  3. Kelly
  4. Chelsea
  5. Noelle
  6. Marshana

Kristine, Erin S., and Amy are eliminated from The Bachelor at this time, their dreams of marrying a trophy husband shattered on national TV. Sad.

Rather than Nick Lachey chilling with a smokin' hot girlfriend (Vanessa Minnillo) or Matt Leinart with a young son (Cole), the two buddies have decided that it's probably a lot more fun to hang with hot, young chicks! Nice!

Nik Richie at the TheDirty.com got these photos of the two stud muffins hanging hot tub-side at Matt's place in Arizona over the weekend. TMZ posted the photos earlier this afternoon, and we've got a few of them here ...

Matt Leinart, College Girls Get Drunk

Nick Lachey and Matt Leinart gettin' smashed with young girls. Classy.

Matt Leinart, who has been linked to Paris Hilton and Kristin Cavallari, among others, certainly cements his reputation as a party animal with these shots.

We have a few observations:

  1. Chances are Brynn Cameron ain't gonna be thrilled about this
  2. Somewhere, Kurt Warner is giving God a beer bong
  3. It's really too bad that Matt's former teammate, Reggie Bush, and his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, weren't available to stop by

This time, it's no accident.

In fact, the celebrity gossip on the street in recent days is that Audrina Patridge was none too happy with the way she looked in the first set of nude pictures that were mysteriously leaked this month, so she released a new set.

Yes, we're serious. After she expressed regret, yet sort of defended the nude photos that leaked online, The Hills star has posed for more than a dozen hot new pics for the celebrity photo agency Splash News (which also owns the originals).

The photo agency had no comment. Check out the HOT pics here.

Some celebrity observers and skeptics believe that Audrina Patridge was perfectly happy about the release of the nude photos - and may have even leaked them herself. After all, nothing produces buzz like naked photo scandals.

Was the leaking of Audrina Patridge nude pics really accidental?

Reports say Audrina had been getting less screen time because of Lauren Conrad's friendship with Lauren Bosworth (Lo). Lo is LC's roommate, while Audrina lives in the guest house behind Conrad's recently-purchased Hollywood villa.

"Audrina has been feeling left out," says an insider.

"[Lauren Conrad] is always with Lo, and they're decorating their house together, so Audrina has been feeling like she's been replaced."

But not on the celebrity gossip meter.

Thanks to the topless photos she is much more highly sought after. Even Playboy wants to talk to her, possibly about a nude pictorial in the near future (heck, if she's already appeared with the Pussycat Dolls, Playboy can't be far off).

The nude Audrina pics were good enough to get the men's mag's attention, which is ironic, as they were shot and submitted to Playboy back in the day, only to be rejected. Now that Patridge has major notoriety, however, it's a new ballgame.

With Blake Fielder-Civil safely tucked away in prison and her family making its best efforts to keep her off the smack, Amy Winehouse has actually managed to visit the recording studio to make some new music of late. That's the good news.

The bad? Wineheezy is working with producer Mark Ronson and friends say her new music has become even "darker" than her huge hit Back to Black. They have described it as "suicidal music," because the lyrics are so bleak.

Winehouse Style: Dark

Should we take away the belt and shoelaces of Amy Winehouse?

An inside source told the UK's The Sun: "Her next album is darker than ever. [Amy Winehouse] got low self-esteem anyway but her skin has made her want to hide away from the rest of the world. And we have started noticing more and more cuts on her arms. Her problems are pushing her over the edge and she's turning into a depressed recluse. It's not good for her to stay in so much."

Hmm. Maybe more visits to Blake Fielder-Civil in the can would actually be a good thing? As long as he's not too busy kicking somebody's ass or becoming someone's bitch. You know how it goes in prison, you gotta pick one of those options.

The family of Heath Ledger believes that the late actor may have fathered a secret love child, according to Australia's Daily Telegraph.

Ledger was a 17-year-old when he had an affair with an older woman who is thought to have discovered she was pregnant after the relationship ended.

The woman was living with another man at the time of the alleged affair.

Yesterday, Heath Ledger's uncle, Hadyn Ledger, told the newspaper: "There is a very real possibility that Heath was the father."

If it is confirmed that Ledger is indeed the girl's biological father, it could split his estate between his two-year-old daughter, Matilda Rose, whose mother is Hollywood actress Michelle Williams, and his secret love child.

Heath Ledger, who will star, posthumously, in The Dark Knight, died alone in January in his N.Y. apartment from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

The Brokeback Mountain star drew up his will prior to his mysterious death, obviously, and long before the birth of Matilda, on whom Heath doted.

The April 2003 will created by the actor lists only $145,000 in assets and names the late actor's father, Kim Ledger, mother Sally Bell, sister Kate Ledger and half sisters Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell as the only beneficiaries.

The New York documents following his death also acknowledge Matilda Rose, as Heath Ledger's only known child, as an interested party.
