Chicago Prosecutors say William Balfour killed Jennifer Hudson's brother, mother and nephew because he was angry his estranged wife was dating other men.

At a hearing Wednesday, prosecutors claimed Balfour came to the family's home the morning of the October 24 murders and confronted his estranged wife Julia Hudson.

Balfour and Julia Hudson left together but Balfour returned to the home; the bodies of Hudson's mother and brother were found there later that day.

Darnell Donerson was 57 and Jason Hudson was 29. The body of Julia Hudson's 7-year-old son, Julian King, was found in an SUV three days later.

Although his defense insists William Balfour is innocent, a judge denied bail.

The prosecutor said Balfour - who was the prime suspect in the murder investigation from the beginning - confessed October 24 when asked for an alibi.

According to the Chicago Tribune, prosecutors debunked statements William Balfour made to police, such as the fact that he said he was at home at the time of the grisly murders, but cell phone records place him in Hudson's neighborhood.

As 2008 winds down, it's time to reflect upon those - from household names to relative unknowns, from A- to D-list - who made this year so memorable.

The Hollywood Gossip is unveiling 10 finalists for its 2nd Annual Celebrity of the Year award. They've given us their best, their worst, even their nude pictures in some cases. Now it is time for us to give something back with this moving tribute.

We present to you Celebrity of the Year finalist #10 … Rielle Hunter!

Unknown a year ago, Rielle Hunter - a.k.a. Lisa Hunter, a.k.a. Lisa Druck, a.k.a. Rielle Druck - is now a (very strange) name etched in political and celeb gossip infamy.

After first being linked to former U.S. Senator and Presidential candidate John Edwards in a cheating scandal late in 2007, Rielle was staying in an L.A. hotel with her newborn daughter this summer ... and Edwards was caught visiting them.

Having run out of plausible denials, the married Edwards finally admitted the affair. He denied the baby was his, though, and said his wife's cancer was in remission at the time of the Rielle railing - as if that makes it so much better.

We may never know for sure if John Edwards knocked up Rielle Hunter (unless he effs up and leaves a paper trail of his shady hush money), but his career in politics is certainly over. It was totally worth it, right John? Just look at her ...

THE RIELLE DEAL: Hunter certainly made for an interesting August.

Despite possessing an IQ only slightly higher than that of an eggplant, the great Jessica Simpson says she wants to attend college to study theology.

Watching TV was her inspiration, natch.

"I've been contemplating taking a college course in religion," the aunt of Bronx Mowgli Wentz said in a recent interview with Marie Claire.

We do have to admire Jess' enthusiasm for learning. Guess she's thinking that she won't always be able to depend on these to get her by ...

Nice Rack

If she ever does enroll in some sort of college, Jessica Simpson should definitely wear outfits like these to classes. That's how you get an A+, girl. It's foolproof.

"I love religion. I remember when The Da Vinci Code came out, the Discovery Channel did this three-night piece on it that I TiVoed and then watched eight times."

Mmm. Jessica Simpson should definitely include that anecdote in her application letters when she applies to local institutions of higher education.

Business has morphed with pleasure for Kirsten Dunst.

The actress has been stepping out with filmmaker Jacob Soboroff, with whom she's working on a documentary about voting, according to Life & Style.

"Yes, they're dating." On November 22 in New York City, the two shopped at art store Blick - then went back to her place, according to an eyewitness.

Here's a picture of Kirsten Dunst and Jacob Soboroff ...

Amy Winehouse's husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, has been sent back to prison for failing a drug test, one of the conditions of his early release.

The infraction comes just over a month after he was released from jail on the condition that he go straight to a drug rehabilitation center.

"I can confirm he has been recalled," said Fielder-Civil's lawyer Kate Anderson, declining to state a reason for the junkie's return to prison.

Blake Fielder-Civil could now be stuck in prison until 2010.

He was sentenced to 27 months in the slammer for assaulting a bartender and trying to bribe him to leave the country and not testify in the case.

In November, he was released into rehab after having served only 11 months behind bars. But divorce rumors have swirled even with him out.

To make matters worse (and hilarious), after hearing the news that he had broken the early release terms and he would be sent back, Fielder-Civil is alleged to have broken out of the Live Woods rehab center in Woking, Surrey, UK.

He is then alleged to have dashed to the private London hospital where his estranged wife was admitted last month for a "reaction to medication."

A source told The Sun: "Blake pulled a runner. He turned up in hospital and hell broke loose - everyone was totally shocked. He was asking Amy to forgive him. As he was going back inside anyway he felt he didn’t have much to lose."

Blake Fielder-Civil said he planned to turn himself after visiting Amy.

The fake honeymoon is over, but the publicity tour never stops.

Newlyweds Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag hit up the 4th annual "Road To A Cure" gala last night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Clad in a leopard-print dress, Heidi flashed a rather large ring. It is not clear whether said rock is related to their quote-unquote secret wedding.

Her nose, boobs and lips are fake, though. That we know. Here's a photo of The Hills stars, who may or may not be legally married, at the event ...

Good to see Spencer Pratt took the time to shave for the event. Click to enlarge more pictures of Heidi Montag and her pimp/possible husband below ...

Kevin Federline has been called many things.

But the only one he cares about even a little is dad.

Mason Dash Disick

Since splitting with Britney Spears in 2006 - then watching in fear as she went through her very public meltdown - the former backup dancer has channeled all of his energy into their sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2.

Now that Spears is getting her life back on track, they're sharing parenting duties again – and Federline tells his side of the story in an interview with People.

Q: Do you remember when you first met Britney Spears?

Kevin Federline: I met her at a club in Hollywood, Joseph's. Our eyes met and that was it. We just hit it off right away. I learned real fast how much of a whirlwind the press and everything was.

Q: What are your happiest memories of the marriage?

Kevin Federline: Well, getting married. I never thought that I would get married but it wound up happening. That was a really, really, happy, exciting moment. I pretty much realized that I was giving my life to her, and I was doing it without question.

The FedEx man at home with Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Q: What went wrong?

Kevin Federline: It's hard enough to be in a marriage, and then have a kid, then kids, it changes everything. For me, I'd become more concerned with my children. Not that I ignored Britney, but my kids are always most important ... I mean, we were having complications. I didn't give her an ultimatum, but I was trying to work stuff out with her, and she didn't even talk to me or anything and went behind my back and filed [for divorce]. [I was] completely blindsided.

The NHL sucks.

We apologize to its 12 fans, but don't even try defending this logic (it's even sillier than putting hockey franchises in Arizona, Texas and Florida):

The league allows fights - serious, punch-the-hell-out-of-the-other-guy fights - with only five-minute penalties assessed to the participants.

But call your opponent's girlfriend your "sloppy seconds," well, don't even think about that! The NHL draws the line there. Enjoy your next strike, morons.

Yes, the NHL suspended one of its most notorious players, Sean Avery of the Dallas Stars, for talking trash to the new player dating his ex-girlfriend.

His ex, of course, is actress of Elisha Cuthbert.

Complex Cuthbert

Elisha Cuthbert used to date Sean Avery. And be kind of famous.

Cuthbert's new boyfriend, Dion Phaneuf, plays for the Calgary Flames - and during a practice session in Calgary this week, Sean Avery said the following:

"I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds," he told the media.

"I don't know what that's about. Enjoy the game tonight."

Avery is suspended indefinitely pending a hearing with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. Elisha Cuthbert and Dion Phaneuf have not commented.

But she'll help you stay in better shape with the new book she's writing about fitness and body image! Seriously!

Playboy’s Playmate of the Year has had a whirlwind 2008 - in more ways than one. Not only is she first Canadian to win that honor in 26 years, Jayde has been thrust into the Hollywood lifestyle of modeling and public appearances.

And dating Brody Jenner!

“It’s been a great year so far. You have no idea the life you will have [as Playmate of the Year] until you are actually living it,” Jayde told Scandalist.

That life includes international travel and rubbing elbows with Hollywood stars, but Jayde Nicole keeps her focus on the future after Playboy.

“First and foremost I am a model,” she says.

However, Jayde Nicole is also pursuing a career as an author, writing a new book about health, beauty, and fitness after she was flooded with emails from young girls asking how she kept herself looking so hot.

Jayde’s book will include sneaky tips for keeping your abs in tip top shape, such as this particular trick she shared:
