Having already lined up a guest spot on Greek, The Hills star Lauren Conrad is now filming a guest spot on the CW series Privileged this week!

The 22-year-old will play - come on, who else - herself and attend a bash thrown by the show's central characters, twins Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) and Sage (Ashley Newbrough), that gets, like, totally out of control. OMG!

The episode will air October 7. We look forward to see it, of course - and would like to recommend Gossip Girl or 90210 for LC's next cameo!

As for her more familiar role - herself, but on The Hills - Lauren Conrad was in typical form last night. Recap of that coming later this morning ...

The unveiling of the Dancing with the Stars cast and a fourth American Idol judge made this quite the banner day for TV news.

We had Kim Kardashian and the new Dancing cast pretty much pegged, but the latter - Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Kara DioGuardi joining American Idol when the musical competition returns this January - came out of left field.

We're certainly looking forward to seeing how this major shake-up plays out. Check out The Hollywood Gossip's bio for a little background on Kara DioGuardi - and click to enlarge some of the photos of this new star we posted below...

... and perhaps something more? Maybe, but not in the clip below.

A week after Lo and Audrina's showdown, Lauren Conrad opens up to beau Doug Reinhardt about the aftermath on tonight's episode of The Hills.

Lauren Conrad Covers Lucky

"It was kind of a disaster," she tells him over lunch.

Doug Reinhardt lets her remarks sink in for a moment and then responds: "Everything, everybody in your life is hectic... Let's go do somethin.'"

How can you not love a man like that?

Later in the conversation, Lauren Conrad invites Doug to a birthday party for Stephanie Pratt that weekend. We all know that won't end well.

Check out the preview below, and be sure to tune in tonight at 10 ...

On the eve of the Democratic National Convention, Madonna has sparked some controversy by including Republican presidential hopeful John McCain in a video montage on her tour that includes Adolf Hitler and Robert Mugabe.

The montage is shown as Madonna sings "Get Stupid" on her "Sticky & Sweet" tour. Images of John McCain, Hitler and Mugabe appear among a litany of images of destruction and global warming until the song nears its end.

That's when images of John Lennon, Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and yes, even Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, are shown.

John McCain's camp quickly fired back against this lunacy.

"The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time," McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds said.

"It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow celebrities refuse to consider any attack off limits," he added.

Regardless of how you feel about McCain, the Material Girl may have gone a bit overboard in likening him to genocidal maniacs. Just a bit.

Amy Winehouse's mother-in-law, Georgette Civil, has called for her to be arrested after the junkie was caught again on video snorting cocaine.

The crackhead Back to Black crooner was secretly filmed hoovering up the quite illegal drug - smack in the middle of a packed London pub.

Smokin' Wino

This is the first time Georgette Civil has spoken out about the shocking 36-second footage, which was filmed last month during Amy's DJ set.

Her sensational comments come in the week that walking corpse Amy Winehouse is set for another rehab stint at the Focus 12 Clinic in Suffolk.

A spy cam catches Amy Winehouse in the act!

Amy has been booked into the clinic just a short drive from the jail where hubby Blake Fielder-Civil is serving a 27-month sentence.

But rather than pushing for Blake's rumored, possible early release, Georgette Civil wants Amy locked up right along side addict son.

“Prison will do Amy far more good than Rehab,” she said. “I’m shocked by the video. When I look at Amy I think: ‘For Christ’s sake, just get a grip of yourself.’ Enough is enough. As the police know, Amy is a drug addict - and she has now been caught twice on film taking illegal drugs - they should arrest her and put her behind bars. Rehab clinics are a waste of money."

Watch the video and read more of Georgette's advice here.

Don't call it a comeback.

No, really, don't. She's not singing or performing anytime soon.

"Britney Spears will not be performing at the VMAs this year. I'm telling you officially and unequivocally," Ryan Seacrest quoted Spears' manager, Larry Rudolph, as saying on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday morning.

Rudolph added that Brit "is in the middle of recording her next album, which is going amazingly well, and was never supposed to perform at that show."

The idea of Spears performing had been rumored for weeks. Her hair stylist was supposedly working on some hot new weaves "looks" for the occasion.

Britney has also been looking very hot and feeling healthy latel - a far cry from her Cinemax soft porn audition VMA "performance" last year (below), which The New York Times called "awful" and "nothing that sounded or looked like live singing."

The singer is still involved in the show in some capacity in '08, however. Spears is appearing alongside host Russell Brand in some funny TV ads, and is up for three VMAs — including Video of the Year for her song "Piece of Me."

After an incident in which he allegedly pulled down a 17-year-old girl's top outside a Buffalo Wild Wings establishment last month, alleged comedian Andy Dick has had a charge of sexual battery dropped by prosecutors.

A rep for the DA handling the case released a statement saying:

"We found that the actions [of Andy Dick] were more in line with an assault than a sexual battery. It didn't appear to be an overt sexual act."

Well, that's ... good? We think?

Andy Dick Mug Shot

Andy Dick still faces misdemeanor counts from his drunken tirade in Murrieta, Calif. He will be arraigned next week for battery, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, public intoxication and possession of marijuana.

His booking photo above defies comprehension. Follow the jump for more classic celebrity mug shots - some of which aren't even DMX!
