Last night on The Bachelor, Matt Grant took all three of the remaining women to Barbados. At the end of their dates, Matt would send one home, leaving only two in the running to be his trophy ex-fiancee.

Matt first met up with Shayne Lamas and they took a spin on some jet skis. They also bounced around on a floating trampoline and took a swim in the ocean. Shayne showed off her splits and straddling skills. Really.

At dinner, he invited her to spend the night with him up in the suite. After thinking about it for a split second, Shayne Lamas said yes.

Next, Matt headed out on his date with Amanda - an exciting zip line ride through the jungle. At dinner, Amanda really puts her heart out on the line, so Matt Grant can see how much she cares about him.

She tells him that she can't picture life without him and Matt Grant hands her the fantasy suite card. She, too, eagerly says yes.

Finally, Matt Grant meets up with Chelsea and the two head out on a boat ride. She keeps her distance from him for some reason.

At dinner, he tells her this is starting to feel more like a friendship. Chelsea quickly tells him that she really does care for him. She accepts the fantasy suite card and shows up wearing nothing but a black nightie.

At the rose ceremony, Matt gave the first rose to Shayne Lamas and, in a bit of a shocker, the second to Chelsea. Fare thee well, Amanda.

Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the New Jersey hooker at the center of the New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer scandal, filed a lawsuit Monday against Girls Gone Wild owner Joe Francis for exploiting her name and image for profit.

The suit seeks more than $10 million in damages.

In legal documents, Ashley Alexandra Dupre claims Girls Gone Wild reps came up to her while she was vacationing in Florida in 2003 and offered her alcohol before inducing her to expose her breasts and sign a waiver.

All while she was underage at just 17. Classy organization.

Since 2003, when this occurred, Girls Gone Wild has illegally exploited the name of Ashley Dupre - or so her lawsuit claims - as well as her picture, voice and likeness in a number of "deceptive advertising campaigns."

Joe Francis - who was willing to pay Ashley Dupre $1 million to pose naked for his videos before realizing, y'know, she already had in 2003 - had no comment.

The multi-millionaire bag of sleaze was just released from a Nevada jail last month, and continues to face federal tax evasion charges in that state.

He is currently fighting separate charges in Florida for allegedly filming underage girls in Panama City. Joe Francis has claimed that the girls in question lied about their age and that he is therefore not liable.

Ashley Dupre, who turns 23 this week, has not appeared publicly since the Eliot Spitzer scandal broke and it was revealed that she exchanges sex for money at a staggeringly high rate - thousands of dollars an hour!

Leighton Meester (an adorable Minka Kelly look-alike) plays the queen of mean, Blair Waldorf, on the CW shot Gossip Girl. Blair is known for her status as the ruler of her school's social elite - and for her discerning fashion tastes.

This one, though? What is Blair going for? Is this a sailor-inspired dress? A safari hat? Is she sailing to Africa and then embarking on a wildlife excursion? And what's with the gloves? There's a fine line between trendy and silly on Gossip Girl.

Kylie Jenner Fashion

Which side does this fall under?

What do you think of this Gossip Girl fashion attempt? Can Leighton pull off the nautical dress - or are the producers trying way too hard?

Actress Minka Kelly of Friday Night Lights fame is also starring in a new movie called Speed Racer, the world premiere of which she attended at the Nokia Theatre on Saturday night in Los Angeles, California.

While she looks great in anything (or nothing, as John Mayer grossly can attest), we're not so sure about the striped dress Minka Kelly donned.

Britney Spears, Plaid Shirt

What do you think? We like that it's a bit low-cut (how can you not, right!) but there's something about this that says zebra to us. We love football, but don't need to see the referees at movie premieres. Right? Love it or hate it...


What are your thoughts on Minka Kelly's dress? Hit or miss?

By the cojones, no less!

What gossip fan can forget this celebrity photo classic, starring the newly-engaged and ultra-horny Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, from back in 2004. Ah, to be young, in love and grabbing your fiance's package on a hotel balcony...

After a brief courtship, Britney Spears and K-Fed married, fornicated a lot, had two kids, and called it quits about two years later. Good times.

Celebrating her single status as of late 2006, Britney embarked on an epic binge of clubbing (with no panties on most of the time), violating traffic laws, hooking up with (then quickly discarding) random boyfriends, neglecting Sean and Jayden, and being committed to the psychiatric wards of two different hospitals.

Maybe being with Kevin wasn't that bad after all...

Well, at least in the Photoshop sense. Here's two of our favorite celebrity babies (or toddlers) superimposed on the cover of Radar magazine. Apparently, Suri Cruise and Maddox Jolie-Pitt are taking over the world ...

Maddox Jolie-Pitt and Suri Cruise really need to start dating.

Bob and Brooke

The respective spawns of Brangelina and TomKat have long been favorites of The Hollywood Gossip staff, which also appreciates bad image altering. But this looks pretty hacked even by our low, low standards.

Then again, Radar is the same publication that promotes an advice column from The Hills' Spencer Pratt, so you get what you pay for, really.

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.
