This week, U.S. Navy Lt. Andy Baldwin and Tessa Horst, who met on the last season of ABC's The Bachelor, officially called off their engagement.

While Baldwin and Tessa Horst claim they are still dating, the decision to nix a wedding means that in 10 seasons, not one couple so far has tied the knot.

Of course, there are a few asterisks.

Spurned on one early season, Trista Sutter (formerly Trista Rehn) went on to star in The Bachelorette spin-off, where she met Ryan Sutter. They're married and have a baby!

Also, Lorenzo Borghese is reportedly dating Sadie Murray, who he rejected on the season finale, in favor of Jennifer Wilson, who he has dumped. So don't count out the prince!

Still, none of this bodes well for Brad Womack (above, right), the Austin, Texas bar owner who follows in the footsteps of Baldwin (above, left) on September 24.

Can Brad Womack be the first to find everlasting love? What do you think?

Evan Rachel Wood. It's not just for Marilyn Manson anymore.

Well, she is where it counts the most. But in her most recent photo spread for GQ, it appears as if Evan Rachel Wood decided to let a nipple slip. See for yourself.

Evan Rachel Wood is a cute girl, and this a hot photo, but what a tease.

For crying out loud, look at Marilyn Manson's ex-wife! Every other photo we see is of Dita Von Teese naked! You've got big shoes to fill, Evan Rachel!

We're down to the final four on So You Think You Can Dance, Fox's summer hit and the younger brother, if you will, of the phenomenon known as American Idol.

We've been watching the series and can tell you that it's wide open after all four of the remaining stars turned in stellar efforts last night. Let's size up the ferocious foursome as we prepare for tonight's final So You Think You Can Dance results show.

Danny Tidwell (far left): Danny Tidwell, admittedly, isn't great at ballroom and hip-hop, but he's been called the best of the lot by the judges more than once due to his talent and energy. Must run in the family. The mother of (Blake Lewis look-alike) Travis Wall, last year's runner-up, is Danny's adoptive parent!

Lacey Schwimmer (second from left): Speaking of keeping it in the family, who the heck cares that her brother, Benji Schwimmer, was last year's champion? Give us a single reason Lacey doesn't have the spunk, energy, personality and mad skills to continue the Schwimmer legacy on the show. That's right, there is none.

Neil Haskell (second from right): This dancer - and gymnast - knows it takes a variety of skills to make it in the entertainment business. He sells his routines' characters better than anyone, and Neil remains the most popular with voters due to his charm, ridiculous tricks and good looks. It's tough combination to top.

Sabra Johnson (far right): We've learned this much so far - underestimate Sabra at your peril. She's been under the radar, but Johnson thrives in every situation and style - and may be the most versatile of the final four. The diminutive Sabra can never be counted out, and she certainly came up with the goods last night.

Who will be crowned America's favorite dancer? Stay tuned.

If you thought that F-list mainstays Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were going to torture you with bikini photos or rants against Lauren Conrad, well, you were so wrong!

Today, at least.

This morning on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM show, Heidi showed off her musical "talent" with a rendition of her debut single (yes, she's working on an album), "Body Language."

That's bad enough, but it gets worse. Spencer Pratt grabbed the mic and showcased his hip-hop skillz, dropping some ill rhymes over the phat beats.

If you're the masochistic type, or just really bored and in need of a laugh, you can subject yourself to a portion of their "performance" by CLICKING HERE.

"Got my eyes on a sassy pearl… Heidi Montag, yeah, that's my girl!"

"Body Language" is produced by David Foster, a longtime music mogul who is - of course - now married to Brody Jenner's mother, Linda Thompson.

According to Heidi Montag, "Body Language" is dance and urban-inspired (she's down like that, yo) and she hopes it's played in clubs.

You know, maybe she's onto something there… but only if said clubs want to get people the hell out the door after last call.

It's not what you think. In fact, if you guessed "they're famous for no reason," obviously you haven't seen our boy Zac in High School Musical. Just saying.

Nicole Richie, Zac Efron are among several young stars recently spotted rocking crimson bracelets - much like the red Kabbalah string Madonna made famous a few years ago.

Is the trend making a comeback?

Richie (pictured here with the string on her limp, bony arm) and Lauren Conrad - also spotted wearing the string of late - each have been sporting a charm of a hand on them called a "hamsa," explains Rabbi Shmuley Boteach of TLC's Shalom in the Home.

"It's a kabbalistic symbol. Wearing it is meant to bring down God's mercy and kindness."

But a rep for Zac Efron (who's girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, also wears one), tells Us Weekly that his bracelet has no significance.

"It's not a kabbalah string," the rep said.

"There's no religious meaning [to the red string]."

Meanwhile, Lauren Conrad's rivals on The Hills, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, are probably rushing to try and patent string, as well as the color red, so they can cash in on this fad.

A new problem with a magazine trying to interview her. A new sexual conquest. Just another day in the life of the train wreck that is Britney Spears.

With Britney tapped to be Allure's September cover model, rumors spread that the pop star acted erratic - uncooperative and unfocused - on the set of the photo shoot.

But Allure's editor in chief, Linda Wells, is setting the record straight in her letter from the editor, saying "Britney showed up for Allure's cover shoot on time and ready to work."

Wells writes that Britney Spears did display some odd behavior at the shoot, however. Odd for normal people, anyway.

"She was entirely unselfconscious: She took off her wig and then stripped down to the waist, for no apparent reason, before sitting for hair and makeup," she said.

Wells describes Britney Spears as "agreeable and cooperative" during the photo shoot. And the mag managed to snap some revealing, half-nude photos (below)!

Topless Britney Spears in Allure

But this where the good news ends. As it turns out, Britney Spears never showed up for her promised interview with the magazine.

Britney missed four meetings for an interview with Allure, essentially turning the cover story into a first-person rant from the writer, Judith Newman, detailing her frustrations with the screwed up star's invariable string of cancellations.

Why is she so hard to track down? Maybe she's too busy having the sex with Criss Angel, who has suddenly become the biggest womanizer in Hollywood.

Cameron Diaz's recent fling and JoAnn Sarantakos‘ estranged husband was seen escorting Spears inside the Tower Beverly Hills Hotel on Wednesday night.The two held hands, then headed up to a suite on the 11th floor where he probably performed an "illusion" and made her clothes disappear. That's a tough feat.

Spears recently had a topless hot tub romp with 21-year-old student Matt Encinias at the Standard Downtown hotel. It has also been suggested that Spears and her former assistant, Shannon Funk, have made love. But that's another story. 

Britney Spears: Touched By an Angel. Criss.

There's really nothing funny about Ving Rhames' dogs allegedly killing their caretaker. So we're always grateful for Michael Vick news.

The embattled NFL quarterback, facing federal charges related to his alleged participation in dogfighting, is considering a plea bargain that would halt the investigation against him in exchange for cooperation and a sentence that is not yet known.

But apparently he's got other problems. Vick has been hit with a $63,000,000,000 lawsuit filed by a South Carolina inmate who alleges the Atlanta Falcons star not only stole his pit bull, but sold them on eBay to buy missiles. From Iran.

We're serious. The story about Vick getting sued is on a real news site! Check that, it's on Fox News. But a lot of people read that!

Jonathan Lee Riches filed the handwritten complaint over "theft and abuse of my animals" on July 23 in the U.S. District Court in Richmond, Va.

Riches alleges that Vick stole two white mixed pit bull dogs from his home in Holiday, Fla., and used them for the dogfighting ring he's in hot water over.

The complaint goes on to allege that Michael Vick sold the dogs on eBay and "used the proceeds to purchase missiles from the Iran government."

Man, this guy is a loon. Jonathan Lee Riches doesn't seem too sane, either.

The complaint also alleges Vick would "need those missiles" because he pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda in February of this year. Naturally.

"Michael Vick has to stop physically hurting my feelings and dashing my hopes," Riches wrote in the paperwork for the lawsuit.

Riches wants $63 billion "backed by gold and silver" delivered to Williamsburg Federal Correctional facility in S.C., where he's serving a wire fraud conviction.

In related news, The Hollywood Gossip is preparing a $36 million lawsuit after suffering immense retina pain due to the eye popping reaction over seeing Heidi Klum nude. Gosh.

Last season's stars of The Bachelor, Lt. Andy Baldwin and his chosen lady, social worker Tessa Horst, have confirmed that they have broken off their engagement.

But not their bond with each other.

"We are very much in love and committed to our relationship," the couple said in a joint statement to People.

"With the possibility of reassignment to a new location, we decided it was not the ideal time for Tessa to uproot herself and move out [to Hawaii] right now. Our relationship continues to deepen, and we're very hopeful about our future."

At the ABC party during the Television Critics Association press tour in late July, Andy Baldwin, 30, said that the San Francisco-based Tessa Horst, 26, was due to move to Hawaii, where Baldwin is posted, that month.

Andy and Tessa got together after he picked her over Bevin Powers on the May 21 finale of their season on the matchmaking program.

At the time, Horst said, "Andy brings light into any room and just lights up the room. His smile and his warmth just make him so great to be around."

About his station in Hawaii, Andy Baldwin said:

"I know that I have a year left and I may have the option of a three-year tour. There is also the option of a position in California. There is also a chance of me going back to finish my residency training. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and I am a firm believer that this happened in my life for a reason. Tessa came onto the show for a reason, and it is like a dream come true."

The next season of The Bachelor will begin on ABC September 24. Here's hoping Brad Womack has better luck... and is slightly less of a tool.

Either way, at least the Sports Gal will share her hilarious opinions!

With her hard-partying ways, singer Amy Winehouse has gone from being the music world's newest phenom to its latest casualty.

On August 8, the beehived British star was rushed to London's UCLH hospital for "exhaustion." The star's rep, Tracey Miller, says her client is very overworked.

Exhaustion takes on many meanings. For Lindsay Lohan, it likely means a liter of man soup in her stomach. For Winehouse, a source blames alcohol and drugs.

Indeed, Amy Winehouse, 23, who grew up in working-class London, has long been a wild child. Her taxi-driver dad and pharmacist mom split when she was 9. Her response?

Calling herself a "violent drunk," the singer has said she battled eating disorders, and her arm bears scars from mutilating herself.

"But the time I was 15, my parents realized I would do whatever I wanted, and that was it really," she said.

Around that time, a rebellious Amy Winehouse got her first of many tattoos and pierced her nose, which got her kicked out of theater school.

Despite the international success of her second album, Back to Black, she lacks confidence in anything other than music, friends say.

"When it comes to self-worth and looks," says a pal," she has a low opinion of herself."

This in spite of her recent marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil, who she dated off and on for a few years before rekindling the flame this spring.

In recent months, the singer, who once toiled as an entertainment reporter, canceled shows in London and L.A., and has backed out of shows in Europe.

Though her rep says that after a rest, Amy Winehouse will resume her touring schedule, friends still worry.

"Part of her problem is she has a young, strong, physical constitution and a strong mind," says childhood pal Jessica Ashby. "But they are also her solution."

Forget America's Next Top Model.

How about America's Cutest Baby Model!

Katie and Suri Pic

The adorable Suri Cruise is rumored to be the new face of Baby Gap. We wish it were true. Those would be some cute ads! But alas, it looks like rumors to that effect are unfounded.

The rumor is "totally untrue," according to the publicist for the cute baby's father, actor Tom Cruise.

Reports surfaced Wednesday that Suri Cruise had signed a lucrative contract with the kids clothing company.

Which would've been some feat, as she just learned to walk and probably hasn't even learned how to say "Scientology" yet.

But even without the ad campaign, the littlest member of the TomKat home has been finding all sorts of cool ways to keep busy.

Since kicking off the summer with mom Katie Holmes on the set of Mad Money in Shreveport, La., the 16-month-old has soaked up rays in the South of France and Sardinia, Italy, and become a regular in Berlin, where her dad is filiming the World War II drama Valkyrie.

She's quite worldly, that Suri Cruise. Here's hoping she doesn't get mixed up with the wrong crowd. Britney, Paris, Nicole and Lindsay are such bad news.
