What made the fabulous but romantically-impaired Carmen Electra want to walk down the aisle for a third time with new fiance Rob Patterson?

"We have known each other for a long time â€" it's like we're really good best friends," Electra told Us Weekly recently in Palm Springs.

"He understands me, I understand him," she said.

So will the wedding be different from her two previous marriages to Dave Navarro and Dennis Rodman, which lasted a combined 45 minutes?

"You can't really compare people," Carmen Electra said. "This is something new and exciting, so we will see where it goes. I am very happy."

Carmen Electra wouldn't dish on how Rob Patterson popped the question.

"It's personal, but it was wonderful and sweet, I will tell you that," she said, adding that she and Rob Patterson don't have a date set yet.

"We are going to enjoy being engaged for now and just do that," she said. "It's funny because people think you are getting married tomorrow, and we just want to take our time and take things very slow."

As for rumors that Carmen Electra is pregnant?

"People always say what they want," she said. "I don't really have anything to say to that. It's silly."

Despite rumors of infidelity from both parties, singer Amy Winehouse and her junkie incarcerated husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, have made "no decision" about a divorce, a source close to the Grammy Winner reports.

"It is a tough situation," the insider added to People magazine. "I don't think that anyone who knows them and cares about them doesn't have an opinion about why they should [split], but it's not happening now."

According to the source, Amy Winehouse's "health and well-being" remain the most immediate concerns for those close to her.

The 24-year-old spent Friday night at a London police station after being found "unfit for questioning." This followed an incident in which she head-butted some dude who tried to hail a taxi for her drunk ass, trashed a bar and smoked drugs on the street.

Winehouse was released Saturday morning after having been arrested and jailed, and was issued a "formal caution" on the charge of common assault.

This romantic photo of Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil shows the searing passion and everlasting shared by the two hard-ass drug addicts.

On Sunday, Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, told the U.K.'s News of the World that he wanted her locked up in a mental hospital for her own protection.

"I want her sectioned," he said, using the amusing British term for committed. "The situation is out of control. I want her off the street."

Amy Winehouse met Blake Fielder-Civil, a part-time gofer on video sets, at a London bar in 2003. The couple got hitched in Miami in May 2007.

THG NOTE: If there are "rumors of infidelity" from both, who is Blake Fielder-Civil cheating with, seeing that he's locked up - and does it count as cheating if you're somebody's bitch in a prison gang? Just asking.

Baseball star Roger Clemens carried on a decade-long affair with country star Mindy McCready, beginning when she was a 15-year-old aspiring singer performing in a karaoke bar and Clemens was the 28-year-old Boston Red Sox ace and married father of two, according to a shocking report in the New York Daily News.

Vivid details of the affair could surface in several media projects that Mindy McCready is already involved with - including a documentary that begins filming today in Nashville, a new album and a reality show.

McCready, who lives on a quiet, tree-lined street in Nashville, Tenn., is attempting a comeback following a string of legal and personal woes.

Through his attorney Rusty Hardin on Sunday, Roger Clemens confirmed a long-term relationship but denied that it was of a sexual nature.

"He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her," Hardin told the Daily News. "He's considered her a close family friend... He has never had a sexual relationship with her."

The revelations could torpedo claims of an "unsullied character" that are central to the defamation suit Clemens filed January 6 against his former personal trainer Brian McNamee, who accuses him of steroid use.

Rusty Hardin said the Rocket's wife, Debbie Clemens (left), knew Mindy McCready (right) and that the singer had traveled on his plane.

From a PR standpoint, Clemens' decision to file the suit against McNamee the night the Rocket appeared with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes could end up being the biggest risk he has taken yet in a bid to clear his name.

Under investigation for perjury, Roger Clemens already endured the ignominy of publicly throwing his wife under the bus - saying she took human growth hormone (HGH) - as well as having photos of bloody gauze and needles linked to him and undergoing scrutiny of an alleged injection-site abscess on his buttocks.

The controversial Vanity Fair photos, for which Miley Cyrus has already apologized for, have been released online.

In the accompanying interview to the magazine shoot, the young singer explained her decision to pose topless, albeit with a blanket covering her body:

"I had a big blanket on. And I thought, This looks pretty, and really natural. I think it's really artsy. [And] it wasn't in a skanky way.… And you can't say no to [photographer Annie Leibovitz]. She's so cute. She gets this puppy-dog look and you're like, O.K."

Is the infamous picture skanky, Miley? No. But is it inappropriate for a 15-year old? Yes. You and your family should have known better.

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at a series of the Vanity Fair pics in question. Click on each for enlarged versions...

What do you think, readers? Did Miley Cyrus need to apologize for these shots? Are they too racy for someone her age? Do they change your view of her?

"Does" in the figurative sense of course. The only whoring around Heidi Montag does is of the media variety. At least for now. As far as we know.

Despite reports that the plug was pulled on her upcoming trip to the White House Correspondents' Association dinner (because MSNBC refused to pay for Spencer Pratt's first-class plane ticket), they made it anyway, thank goodness.

Also in attendance to watch George W. Bush make fun of himself, Barack Obama, John McCain, Hillary Clinton and others? Heidi and Spencer's nemesis, Lauren Conrad!

Wonder if the Secret Service had to keep them apart...

Last week, Spencer re-ignited the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors that caused such an uproar last year, saying it's "1,000 percent true" that the tape of LC and Jason Wahler existed. LC has yet to publicly fire back.

Maybe she's waiting for The Hills tonight.

In any case, here are a few more photos of The Hills stars at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner. Click to enlarge!

We know Jamie Lynn Spears isn't a fan of safe sex.

Well, apparently she's equally opposed to automobile safety practices! Nice!

Jamie Lynn Spears Pregnant Again?

Despite her ever-growing baby bump, the pregnant 17-year-old forgot to buckle her seat belt as she rode in the passenger seat of her mother Lynne Spears' SUV.


Britney's not the only Spears who can't figure the car thing out.

Jamie Lynn Spears' most recent lapse in judgment can be seen on a video posted on TMZ as the two left a jewelry store in Kentwood, La., Thursday.

Jamie Lynn, whose parents are named Jamie and Lynne, reunited with her ma this week after months apart. Lynne had been in Los Angeles looking after her other train-wreck, traffic-safety-rejecting daughter, Britney Spears.

At the very least, though, Jamie Lynn had been spending a lot of time with fiance / baby daddy Casey Aldridge. Both celebrate birthdays in April!

It's about time. The Hills' villain-in-chief, Spencer Pratt, has fully refueled the long-standing feud between himself and Lauren Conrad.

During a taping for next Tuesday's episode of The Tyra Banks Show, he says he is "100 percent" sure there is, or was, a Lauren Conrad sex tape.

Ick!!

"I know for 100 percent fact it did exist. 1,000 percent!" he said.

Ignoring the fact that one cannot be more than 100 percent sure of anything, Banks asked if Spencer Pratt had actually seen the tape.

"I would never watch that!" slimy Spencer replied. "I would rather throw up... but I know for a fact, and I would take a lie detector test."

The alleged Lauren Conrad sex tape supposedly co-starred her boyfriend at the time, Jason Wahler. Rumors took the Internets by storm last year, but the sex tape never materialized and LC flatly denied it ever existed.


Lauren Conrad won't be pleased by Spencer Pratt's comments - again!

Conrad's friendship with Heidi Montag fizzled after LC accused her of spreading false rumors about a sex tape, which Montag denies. This running feud was the basis for an entire season of The Hills, as fans probably know.

Heidi Montag â€" who appeared with Spencer Pratt on Banks' show â€" claims that the sex tape was "not a rumor. From what I have heard from confirmed sources, her ex-boyfriend was going around trying to sell it."

Banks then asked Heidi Montag, if she hadn't seen the actual Lauren Conrad sex tape, how could she be so sure it existed.

"Well, I mean, I am not sure she has it anymore... but from what I've heard. I am not really allowed to elaborate."

Sure thing. Go have some more plastic surgery and stage some more bikini photos on the beach, you publicity-hogging dweebs!

To find out more, watch the full interview on The Tyra Banks Show Tuesday, and be sure to mock Tyra Banks when you do. Way to have supposedly serious shows about vaginas and the difficult of being overweight... then follow it up with this nonsense.

Amy Winehouse is meeting with police today after she allegedly head-butted a man this past week in London, her rep confirmed to celeb news sites.

The 24-year-old singer "will be voluntarily attending a London police station by appointment with the police" to be questioned about attacking a 38-year-old man who tried to hail her a taxi outside a London bar. Natch.

In addition to the head-butting, she also allegedly kissed a man, assaulted yet another man, trashed the bar, and smoked drugs on the street. All in a night's work for one of the celeb gossip world's renowned train wrecks.

On her way to meet with police, Amy Winehouse burst into tears when asked how she's feeling. It may have just been the shakes that sparked this.

"She looked a mess," an eyewitness told Us Weekly.

"She was crying and moaning - makeup smudged all over her face."

The Grammy winner spent two weeks in treatment this past January, before somehow being let out and allowed to return to her old ways.

Husband Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she married last May, has been in jail since November 8 on assault and witness-tampering charges.

He will remain in jail until at least June 9.
