Are you the slightest bit surprised by this headline?

You shouldn't be. The Hills' gruesome twosome has reportedly been talking to the network that made them famous about their upcoming nuptials.

Heidi Bends Over

As in a live telecast of their upcoming nuptials.

Heidi Montag reportedly told MTV programming and development honcho Tony DiSanto that they're ready to tie the knot in front of the cameras.

Surprise, surprise: DiSanto is said to be all for it!

Would you watch Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding? You can admit it.

According to Spencer Pratt, their dream is a small wedding on Sir Richard Branson's private island in the Virgin Islands, with catering by Wolfgang Puck, designer watches for all guests and a live performance by U2.

Even master manipulators like Spencer and Heidi may be aiming too high with those requests, but we're sure MTV can figure out something.

Our personal suggestion is for Brody Jenner and Frankie Delgado to become ordained ministers online, then officiate the ceremony.

Lynne Spears, mother of Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears, has always been known for her deep desire to cash in commitment to strong parenting.

Her memoir - yes, her f*%king memoir - which was delayed last winter amid Jamie Lynn getting knocked up at 16, will be now released this fall.

Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World is the title. We're serious. Sorry, we're a little thrown off by this.

The book will chronicle Lynne Spears' pimping out raising of Britney, 26, and Jamie Lynn, 17, and how she ruined their lives for the sake of money groomed them into stars while coming from small-town Louisiana.

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

"When Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant, the book was put on hold," a representative for Spears' publisher, Thomas Nelson Inc., said.

"But Lynne never stopped working on it because she wants to express her love for CA$H her children and tell their stories through her eyes."

"[It] will not be a parenting book," the rep said of the book, which was originally set to be titled simply Pop Culture Mom.

"It's [Lynne Spears] telling her story of what it was like being a mom and raising two very famous people. It's a memoir."

This book should come with a noose - if you buy it, there's really no point in going on. At least the weather's warm where Lynne's going.

"I've been trying to braid my hair like LC, and I can't figure out how she does it. Can you post a picture?" - from The Hollywood Gossip mailbag

We can't help this reader with tips on how to copy LC's look, but we can certainly oblige by posting a photo of this celebrity hairstyle - one as cute as it is unusual.

It helps to look as good as Lauren Conrad, of course.

Fans of The Hills may have noticed that in the third season, a single braid across the side of Lauren Conrad's hairline, with her long, otherwise straight and flowing locks, became her signature look of sorts. See below...

Just LC

What do you think of Lauren Conrad's signature, singular braid? How does it compare with some other celebrity hairstyles we've seen on The Hills and beyond?

Never one to shy away from speaking her mind, Katherine Heigl has taken herself out of the running for the upcoming 60th Annual Emmy Awards.

The reason? Last year's Best Supporting Actress said Grey's Anatomy, her hit show for four seasons, just didn't give her enough to work with.

"I did not feel that I was given the material this season that warrants an Emmy Award nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention," Katherine Heigl told the Los Angeles Times.

"In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from another actress who was given such materials."

Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl sure is full of hot air!

Heigl's latest controversial comments either reflect a gracious gesture to her fellow actresses, or a dubious and obnoxious indictment of the people who put her in those non-Emmy situations - the Grey's Anatomy writing staff.

Our guess is it's the latter. While we admit, the show took a swan dive off a cliff creatively in the past year, who does this girl think she is? Oooh, we're so sorry they didn't give you enough to work with, Katherine! Get over yourself.

Clay Aiken is having a son with Jaymes Foster.

That news was big enough. But don't expect him to stop there!

The 29-year-old singer and his 50-year-old producer and friend, who he has impregnated the old-fashioned way (artificial insemination), used advanced IVF therapy to conceive their first child, who is due this summer.

But celebrity news magazines are reporting that Jaymes Foster has already frozen more eggs so they can have a second baby next year.

Aiken has also set aside some sperm. You may vomit at will.

WARNING: This man may not stop at fathering one child.

"[Jaymes Foster] is due in August, so she'd like to conceive again next March," a source says. "That way, she would give birth in December 2009. Clay and Jaymes are committed to having at least two children."

"They're both incredibly successful and wealthy, so money is certainly no object. And Clay just adores children. He is going to make a wonderful and caring father. There's absolutely no doubt about that."

Surely his fans agree.

Emma Bunton is bobbing for a new haircut.

The Spice Girl recently told People Magazine that she's a big fan of her new hairstyle, saying:

That's all well and good - but do you think the new look is an improvement?

Former neighbors and current pals Britney Spears and Mel Gibson spend some more time together Tuesday - at an exclusive Beverly Hills cigar club.

The singer and the actor-filmmaker met in what was considered more of an ongoing guidance session than a business meeting, sources say.

Dress Her Up

Mel Gibson and his wife Robin have taken Britney Spears under their wing since her meltdowns earlier this year, meeting with her regularly.

At the posh Havana Club, a tired-looking Spears arrived with her personal assistant, Brett and a bodyguard to meet Mel around 7:30.

"She looked pretty in her new Capri jeans a blue blouse, white shoes and a brown bag," said a celebrity gossip photographer on the scene.

Troubled stars Britney Spears and Mel Gibson have forged a friendship.

Britney was described as quiet and serious - by contrast, an upbeat Mel Gibson walked in holding a bag up to his face and saying "okay, you got me" as celebrity news photographers crowded around to snap his picture.

Once neighbors in Malibu (Spears now lives in Studio City), Britney and Mel began spending time together in March. In May, Gibson and his wife, and Britney and her dad, Jamie Spears, vacationed together in Costa Rica.

Melissa Rycroft, Baby

Seriously, WTF is she wearing? Is this a single item of clothing or two? Not that we're complaining, but why is her entire chest showing?

There's a little Ashlee Simpson baby bump action going on, but we're guessing that's not her only feature that gets Pete Wentz all excited ...

You gotta check out this photo below. Yowza.

Out doing some shopping, a pregnant Ashlee Simpson carries a black purse - and what is sure to be one of the cutest celebrity babies around.

Minka Kelly is a celebrity who can make any hairstyle work.

The Friday Night Lights actress is such a natural beauty, she's never going to go wrong. One has little trouble seeing why Derek Jeter might desire her.

As celebrity hairstyles go, however, we still prefer Minka Kelly's traditional long, straight locks to her occasional wavy mini-braids. Do you? See below ...
