In strange but notable Bachelorette news, Trista Sutter's husband, Ryan Sutter, is sharing some of his best secrets of fatherhood in a new column.

"Even when you're about to breastfeed, we get turned on because we're guys and we just see boobs," Ryan Sutter says in his column for MomLogic.com, which is entitled "10 Things You Don't Know About Dads."

THG NOTE: We certainly enjoy a good boob (as naked Lucy Pinder photos will prove to you) but we can't say we agree with Ryan on this one.

While Ryan Sutter admits to sometimes wearing sunglasses to check out the "cute 25-year-olds who walk by," he advises: "It's really sexy when you have no makeup on. Honestly, we prefer less makeup and seeing you in casual clothes."

Ryan Sutter also admits that fathers fake ignorance about "poopy diapers" to "let you discover it" and that "sometimes we feel fat."

[NOTE to Matt Grant and Shayne Lamas when the time comes!]

Ryan and Trista Sutter - still the only happy couple in the storied history of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette - have an eight-month-old son, Max.

Pete Doherty, the chronic alcohol and drug user and part-time lead singer of British band Babyshambles, has been sent to jail for 14 weeks.

The reason? For violating probation and ... using drugs. There are only so many times you can get arrested and stay out of jail, turns out.

A former boyfriend of Kate Moss, Pete Doherty has a history of being a jackass and was given a suspended sentence in October for drug possession and DUI.

Pete Doherty is behind bars. Unfortunately, he'll be out pretty soon.

He then missed an appointment with his probation team, which resulted in his new sentence. Somewhere, Mitch Winehouse is loving this.

Hopefully possible girlfriend Portia Freeman won't miss him too bad.

Same for recently de-virginized, possible baby-mama Laura McLaughlin.

Yes. Another slow Britney Spears news and gossip week.

Reeling from massive amounts of legal bills and various other expenses that would bankrupt most normal humans, Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, has been working hard to stop the bleeding from his daughter's bank accounts.

Target Shopper

Since he took over running Britney's legal, medical and career affairs earlier this year after she began treatment for bipolar disorder, Jamie oversaw her role on How I Met Your Mother, and may be helping plan a future world tour.

His latest idea? Get Britney Spears to promote a furniture line!

Sources say that as Brit's co-conservator, Jamie Spears is currently in the midst of discussions with Danish celebrity broker Claus Hjelmbak to "bring Danish accent pieces to the United States ... Britney Spears will be the face of the brand."

This was reported by the New York Post today, FYI ... we're not just making stuff up out of our collective a$$es a la certain celebrity news magazines.

Hjelmbak and the pop star met at the Scandinavian Style Mansion in December 2007, when Britney Spears was supposedly paid upwards of $1 million just to celebrate her birthday at the event, which was hosted by Sharon Stone.

This guy is also the same shady character who promised Rolling Stone's Vanessa Grigoriadis he could help her get an interview with the star - if the magazine ponied up millions. Maybe not the best kinda guy for Brit to hang with.

The McCain Girls are back.

Famous on YouTube for their song, "It's Rainin' McCain" (really), the young ladies have released a new video in support of presidential hopeful John McCain.

The title: "Here Comes McCain Again," a play on the Eurythmics' "Here Comes the Rain Again," an '80s dance classic. Here's the video if you dare ...

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqiWrKkILOU[/youtube]

Apparently the McCain Girls were undeterred by the fact that the Arizona Senator lies about watching The Hills, or that the GOP nominee-to-be has confused an Al Qaeda presence with separate Sunni extremists in Iran.

Maybe they're saving that for their "Blame it on McCain" rendition.

Either way, come on McCain Girls. Give it up, already. You're no Obama Girl. Few are, and we admire your interest in civics, but please. Step off.

Incarcerated NFL star Michael Vick is playing some football again, albeit with slightly lower stakes and with guys who are a bit less talented.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank has been communicating by letter with Vick, who is being held at the United States Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas.

Blank told the New York Daily News that the disgraced football star wrote that he is washing pots and pans for 12 cents an hour. Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison after a guilty plea to federal dogfighting charges.

In a scene straight out of The Longest Yard, Michael Vick is playing football at Leavenworth. That's one way to pass the time and keep his arm loose.

He's probably the first player picked when the inmates are choosing up sides or the guards are choosing up sides for them, don't you think?

Michael Vick is staying in shape as QB of his prison's football teams.

"He's staying in shape," Blank told the Daily News. "Apparently, there's a prison football team and he plays quarterback for both sides." It's only fair.

Hopefully O.J. Simpson suits up for this team soon.

Anyways, Blank says Vick wrote him first and they've opened a dialogue by mail. He says that Kevin Winston, the Falcons' director of player development, has visited Vick several times in prison. Blank says he has no plans to.

Vick's life has taken quite a nosedive from his days as a star QB in the pros. He can be comforted by Judge David Doty's ruling in Minneapolis in February that he can keep a pretty nice $16.25 million of his $20 million bonus, at least.

Two more episodes of The Hills last night, one birthday party (Lauren Conrad), one career girl on the rise (Whitney Port) and one epic family feud (Spencer Pratt and Stephanie Pratt) that continues to escalate. Let's recap all the action ...

It's Lauren Conrad's birthday and, to celebrate, she invites her friends out to a club (called S Bar) - including Spencer's sister, Stephanie.

In the meantime, Spencer moves some strange, ugly-ass piece of furniture out of Heidi's apartment and into the middle of Stephanie Pratt's living room.

Anyone have any clue what that thing even is? In any case, she's livid and he's being a brat. This seems like a very real scene of sibling bickering.

At S Bar, BFFs Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port and Lauren Bosworth (Lo) dance the night away to ring in Lauren's birthday party. Stephanie then shows up with a friend, Roxy, and Lo and Audrina are skeptics, thinkin' she's up to something.

Stephanie Pratt is now in the middle of the Lauren Conrad-Heidi Montag feud.

The next day, Lauren and Brody Jenner meet for lunch and he ex-boyfriend, too, says LC should not be trusting Stephanie Pratt as, like, her new BFF.

Meanwhile, it turns out that Brent Bolthouse owns S Bar. Put that together? For you Hills newbies, a co-worker of Heidi Montag's was working the door at LC's party and, well, the cat's out of the bag that Stephanie went to the shindig.

Spencer confronts her and drives her to tears. This exchange follows:

Stephanie Pratt: "You're making me cry right now."
Spencer Pratt: "You're making YOURSELF cry, thinking about what YOU did."

Amazing. Later, Heidi Montag also reams poor Steph out.

Follow the jump for our recap of Part II, "Just Be Careful..."

On last night's episode of The Bachelor, Kelly, Chelsea, Shayne, Ashlee, Noelle, and Robin receive the "first date box" from Matt Grant.

As a result, the girls take to the tennis court to take on Matt. Ashlee sings, Kelly flashes, and Shayne Lamas, never to be outdone, does handsprings.

Robin grabs Matt Grant's attention when she displays her knowledge for tea and British culture, and Shayne confronts her for not playing fair. Robin cries.

Chelsea leaves with the rose, though - snap.

Amanda finds out that she'll get a one on one date with Matt. The evening is '50s style, complete with wardrobe and a classic car and stuff.

The two head to a diner, where she gives Matt dancing lessons. He's a dreadful dancer but the two have a great time and she gets a rose.

Another night of playing sports and dating hot chicks for Matt Grant.

Marshana and Holly join Matt for a dramatic two-on-one date. In somewhat of a surprise move, he sends Holly home and gives Marshana the rose.

At the cocktail party, Matt Grant tells the women how serious he is about finding the woman he is going to spend the rest of his life with. Ooooh.

At the rose ceremony, Amanda, Chelsea, and Marshana are already safe. Our man Matt Grant will hand out three more roses and send two home.

He gives those roses to Shayne Lamas, Robin, and Noelle. That means Ashlee and Kelly (along with Holly) are outta here. It's terribly sad for them.

The formerly engaged Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have a lot of work to do before they walk down the aisle, says his younger sister, Stephanie Pratt.

"I love them both so much, but I don't think they're ready to get married," she said on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show Monday. "They're perfect for each other, though, Spencer loves her â€" I've never seen him love someone so much."

Future Playboy Centerfold

But when Seacrest asked if the notoriously on-and-off duo would be together forever, Stephanie Pratt replied, "Stay together? I don't know."

She said the couple's biggest problem is that they get "jealous a lot ... One of them is a little nicer." When Ryan Seacrest asked who is nicer, she replied, "Spencer is the sweeter person." Well, that's saying a lot, isn't it.

Would Montag ever cheat? Stephanie Pratt wouldn't say, but if she did, watch out. "I'd kill her!" Spencer's li'l sis vowed.

Stephanie also opened up about reconciling with Lauren Conrad, which we saw on last week's episode of The Hills. She felt compelled to apologize to LC because the two were in the same computer class at LA's FIDM.

"I was like, 'I'm scared to death of this girl!'" Stephanie Pratt said of LC.

"I knew I had to apologize â€" the class is nine weeks! If I hadn't, it would've been the worst nine weeks of my life!"

She said Spencer Pratt was "genuinely mad" when he found out the two were pals and that she went to Lauren Conrad's 22nd birthday party.

On tonight's episode, he "makes me cry hysterically," Stephanie said.

Still, she insisted, "I don't think I was at fault... I did become friends with Lauren and went to her birthday party. If became friends with Audrina Patridge, I'd go to her birthday party, too!"

Also, Stephanie Pratt strives to bring Lauren and Heidi together. In a future episode, she said she gets them to appear in the same room! OMG!

"My best friend since the seventh grade and I had the biggest falling out, and we just became friends again, so I am optimistic," Stephanie said.

As for Stephanie and her relationship with Lauren Conrad, she said "[we're] good friends. We're gonna be taking another class together."

The New York Post reported today that Nicky Hilton and The Hills' Whitney Port have been hanging out a lot lately because Nicky's boyfriend, David Katzenberg, is friends with some guy named Matt Kaplan - who just started dating Whit!

We haven't seen any photos of Matt Kaplan and Whitney Port (she is known for trying to keep her personal life private and not shown on The Hills), but we have tracked down a picture of Matt with some other girl you might know...

Whitney Port's new man, Matt Kaplan, once dated Ashley Olsen! 

Back in 2004, Matt Kaplan allegedly dated - and took the v-card of Ashley Olsen. To add STDs to insults, in '06, he was linked to another skank: Lindsay Lohan!

Looks like some very sloppy seconds, even thirds for Whitney!

Hailing from Encino, Calif., and graduating high school in 2002, the studly Matt Kaplan apparently played quarterback for Columbia University after that.

They suck big time, people, but that school is in the Ivy League, so Matt at least must be sort of smart. On the flip side, though, Lindsay Lohan? Really?

Jackass.
