Chelsea had a good run, but as this Hollywood Gossip editor concluded in yesterday's Face-Off, Shayne Lamas was simply out of her league.

After 10 weeks, Matt Grant had narrowed the field down to two, and despite some tough moments with his family, it was an easy call - Shayne Lamas.

At the final rose ceremony, Chelsea was the first out of the limo, which is never a good sign. Matt told her she's amazing, and this experience would not be the same without her... BUT it's just not gonna work out long-term.

Upset at the rejection, Chelsea lashed out at Matt Grant and called Shayne "the fakest person" on The Bachelor. Matt wasn't pleased with this.

But he had more important business to attend to - like getting engaged! He tells Shayne Lamas that he came here for true love and found it with her. Matt then got down on one knee and shocked Shayne by proposing to her.

Matt Grant, Shayne Lamas

Shayne Lamas: Such a warm, caring, fame-seeking soul.

She happily answered yes. Lots of kissing and squealing followed. They said "I love you" approximately 74 times. Her hair was in her eyes. We cried a little.

Below are photos of some of the magic moments last night, with Matt Grant agonizing over his decision, told Chelsea the unexpected bad news, and then popped the question to our girl Shayne Lamas. Click to enlarge!

The season finale of The Bachelor is tonight, and Shayne Lamas looks poised to land the prize. That being Matt Grant. But will Chelsea stand in her way? That's the subject of today's Face-Off. Brace yourself as The Hollywood Gossip debates ...

WILL SHAYNE LAMAS WIN THE HEART OF THE BACHELOR, MATT GRANT?

YES by Free Britney

Face it, no one goes on The Bachelor for love.

It would a nice side effect, to be sure, if one found the love of one's life. But the women and the bachelors themselves go on the show because primarily, they are enamored with fame, at least to a certain extent.

If Matt Grant merely wanted to find love, he'd join a local London-based service, or go online to millionaireloves.com or one of the many other crappy dating sites that spams The Hollywood Gossip constantly.

NOTE: Get a new career, millionaireloves.com spammers.

No, he wanted to date hot women on TV, and Shayne Lamas fits the Bachelor bill better than anyone in the show's history - entertaining, reasonably hot, ethically questionable and shamelessly trying to be famous.

Shayne Lamas' listed profession is "actress." Now that the 22-year-old has her first taste of fame, she'll stop at nothing to remain in the spotlight.

She'll laugh at the right jokes, appear adventurous and fun, cry if things don't go well, go down on Matt in a movie theater, probably even murder her competition if she has to. Long story short, Chelsea has no shot.

There may be a thaw in the contentious relationship between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, suggests K-Fed's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Spears, who last week was awarded more time with her sons with Federline (Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1), was the hot topic of discussion for Mark Vincent Kaplan, on Monday morning's Today show.

Mark Vincent Kaplan, left, has hopes for improved relations between former spouses Britney Spears and Kevin Federline (seen here in a classic 2004 file photo).

The attorney said that the judge's decision at last week's ruling reflected a significant "improvement" in Britney Spears' mental health.

She spent two full days, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., on both Thursday, May 8 and yesterday, May 11 (Mother's Day) with her l'il sons.

"Obviously we're entertainers. We are trying to entertain in every aspect of our lives." - Heidi Montag

The celebrity news world is simultaneously bursting and flat.

Broke and Gross

The unbalance of Britney Spears, the growing pains of Miley Cyrus and the druggy tailspin of Amy Winehouse - to name a few favorite plots - add up over the hours to grand narratives and debates about femininity, drug use, mental health, sexuality, motherhood, legal proceedings, parenting and violence.

But the celebrity gossip world is flat in that every story seems just as important as every other - and this is a monster that needs feeding.

That's what celeb news fame is now: Weekly, and sometimes hourly, we must have stories; the lives of the chosen people must appear to move forward.

Into the breach between supply and demand have stepped Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, the villainous couple from MTV's docu-soap The Hills.

While Heidi Montag may not be the most famous, she's definitely fame-ish. Creatures of the game in every way, she and Spencer, the arch-enemies of Lauren Conrad, have mastered the new realities of celebrity culture.

The two know what commodity they're selling and what its value is: "There's only so much gossip," as Heidi said over lunch recently.

"We're always the juicier story," Spencer Pratt interjected.

Bill O'Reilly.

Whether he's trying to insert himself into the Miley Cyrus topless pic debate, calling out Snoop Dogg or letting Hillary Clinton chop his nuts off interviewing Hillary Clinton on national TV, this "no spin" journalist sparks controversy.

Angry Bill O'Reilly

In case you haven't noticed, Bill O'Reilly can get pretty fired up.

Still, this behind-the-scenes clip from Bill's days as host of Inside Edition is shocking even for him. Apparently someone was screwing up on the teleprompter. Bill goes through several takes, then absolutely flips the f*%k out.

WARNING: Hilarious, scary clip of temperamental ass clown contains profanity.

We don't blame the little girl. It is a pretty painful spectator sport to watch in America - even if it's the amazing David Beckham doing the soccer playing.

Amid speculation that their family add a new baby, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and baby Suri joined David's son Brooklyn to watch the L.A. Galaxy Saturday.

Julie Bowen and Oliver

While Katie and her 45-year-old haircut look bored to death, Suri Cruise recoils in terror at the (lack of) action on the field as Tom tries to shelter his little girl ...

The TomKat clan and Brooklyn Beckham watch a riveting L.A. Galaxy game.

Audrina Patridge of The Hills, is set to make her film debut in Into the Blue 2, a sequel to a 2005 movie no one saw but apparently starred Jessica Alba. Who knew?!

The sequel, which won't star Alba, is about a married couple (Chris Carmack of The OC quasi-fame and Laura Vandervoort of Smallville) who are hired as professional divers to search for Christoper Columbus' hidden treasure.

A Little Lost in Thought

That's until they learn about their employer's hidden agenda. Oooooooh.

In the film, Audrina Patridge will play "a no-nonsense, beautiful beach babe" with a boyfriend who "caters to her every command," the Hollywood Reporter says.

That should be a nice contrast to real life, in which she plays a beautiful beach babe with a boyfriend who smells bad and never caters to her needs at all.

Yes, we're talking to you, Justin-Bobby.

We look forward to Audrina's movie debut. She's probably got like one line, but at least we know she'll be wearing little clothing while delivering it. Sweet.

We know, not exactly breaking news here. But a new book from a former manager alleges that a groggy O.J. Simpson, high on marijuana, confessed to double murder.

Mike Gilbert, a memorabilia dealer, also claims that he helped his former friend wiggle out of the murder charges by suggesting how to bloat his hands so they wouldn't fit the notorious bloody gloves.

O.J. Mugshot

Gilbert's book, How I Helped O.J. Get Away With Murder: The Shocking Inside Story of Violence, Loyalty, Regret and Remorse, is due in stores Monday.

He said Simpson smoked pot and taken a sleeping pill and was drinking beer when he confided at his home in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood weeks after his trial what happened that infamous night of June 12, 1994.

As he tells it, O.J. Simpson said he went to his ex-wife's condominium but did not bring a knife with him. Simpson told him that his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, had one in her hand when she opened the door.

In a soft mumble, Simpson told him: "If she hadn't opened that door with a knife in her hand ... she'd still be alive."

Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman were stabbed to death at the entrance to her condominium. The knife was never found.
