The drama on the 10th season of The Bachelor is peaking as Andy Baldwin cut the field down yet again, and it's time for The Hollywood Gossip's weekly recap of the always-enthralling Monday ride.

As usual, ESPN's Sports Gal will do the honors.

Ben, Lindzi, Horse

The wife of ESPN's beloved sports scribe, a.k.a. Bill Simmons, offers her thoughts below on last night's events and the three remaining would-be Mrs. Baldwins, and how his choice for the final twosome came as a shock. Not!


I really enjoyed the "The Bachelor: Hawaii."

The show started with Andy Baldwin wearing his white Navy uniform, walking around Pearl Harbor and telling us, passionately but seriously, "It's not about yachts, it's not about sports cars, it's about being a U.S. Naval officer."

The camera showed him from various angles as Baldwin looked very serious and pretended the cameras weren't there. It looked like he was filming a photo shoot for a new Andy Baldwin cologne line called "Pearl Harbor."

The girls arrived one at a time (first Bevin Powers, then Danielle Imwalle, then Tessa Horst) and Andy didn't greet them with his usual dorky energy because he was busy feeling serious.

Yes, we realize the title of this post is oxymoronic, as nothing at all about Nicole Richie could possibly be considered classic. That word implies something once had redeeming qualities or some semblance of worth, and while Richie may not be as detestable as Spencer Pratt (who is, really), she's hardly vintage.

Just the same, the photos below are a heck of a lot more pleasing than the sickly, ghostly, flat-out wrong Nicole Richie pictures presented to us these days.

Nicole and Harlow

Yes, long before Nicole was known for blowing chunks and Joel Madden, she was just Paris Hilton's slightly chunky, fun-loving pal on the reality TV hit, The Simple Life.

Check out this old Maxim/Stuff spread. While they may be the most airbrushed photos of all time, we definitely prefer the old Nicole. Much like we dig the old Kate Bosworth.

Kate Bosworth is possibly anorexic.

That's up in the air. She's definitely impatient and bitchy, though!

Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth Photo

The moody, skinny Blue Crush star made it decided to make it a girl's night out after getting in a tiff with her boyfriend, James Rousseau.

According to the New York Post, Bosworth and Rousseau were spotted bickering at Seventh Avenue and 10th Street at about 7 p.m. Thursday. A spy's take:

"He was trying to hail a cab, but he couldn't get one fast enough for Kate. She then started walking away to hail a cab herself. She was p!$$ed!"

After that, she disappeared faster than the subject of a Criss Angel illusion. Just call her f*%k-'em-and chuck-'em Bosworth.

Later, Bosworth, who has been looking kind of healthy in recent bikini photos, was seen bar-hopping in the East Village with a gal pal.

That pal was Helena Christensen - who evidently had a limo, which picked them up from East 11th Street bar Angels & Kings at 11:30.

Too bad for you, James Rousseau. Looks like the only doggy style action you'll be getting for awhile is taking the pooch for a walk.

He may have made a bad decision with his recent DUI, but at least Ty Pennington isn't a washed-up, middle-aged, steroid-using fiend.

Sylvester Stallone pleaded guilty this morning in a Sydney court to bringing banned muscle-building hormones into Australia.

Sly Stallone

Richard Gere's nemesis will be sentenced next week.

The Rocky Balboa star didn't appear in court, but said in an apologetic letter to Sydney's Downing Center Local Court that he had "made a terrible mistake" because he was "ignorant" about local laws, according to the AP.

Right, because steroids are all good in the U.S. of A. Surprisingly, Jason Wahler hasn't been arrested for using any. Give it time.

Stallone was accused of bringing the restricted growth hormones into the country when a customs search in February turned up 48 vials of Jintropin, a human growth hormone.

Then, said a prosecutor yesterday, the Brandon Davis look-alike threw four vials of the male hormone testosterone out of his hotel room when customs officials searched it.

The maximum penalty for Sylvester Stallone's offense could be 5 years in prison and $91,500 in fines, but he will face up to $18,500 for each charge because his case is being heard in local (not federal) court.

Hmm. Josh Henderson had to see this coming.

A handsome actor he may be, but that doesn't put him in the same league as the legendary Greek God of Poontang, does it?

That's right, he's baaaaack

Just 1 Night in Paris

Paris Hilton is making the most of her final days of freedom by rekindling the flame with on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again beau, shipping heir Stavros Niarchos.

Apparently unfazed by recent tongue-lashings dished out by Shanna Moakler and Candy Spelling (!), the future jailbird arrived at L.A. hotspot Teddy's around midnight on Saturday with a group of friends.

Paris spent the evening chatting and laughing with her girlfriends and appeared to be in a great mood, all things considered.

Unless Spencer Pratt can pull off a miracle, she's due to start her jail sentence no later than June 5).

When Stavros Niarchos arrived with a big posse of Euro friends at 12:45 a.m., he made a bee-line for Paris' table, where the heiress greeted him with a big hug and kiss.

So much for his MySpace statement that he's single.

The two spent most of the night together, laughing and cuddling and Paris leaned over and kissed him multiple times. She massaged his neck and ran her fingers through his hair.

He plays it cool, but regardless of whether he's been hookin' up with Hilary Duff, he does seem to have feelings for Paris, proving money can't make one smart.

Stav had his arm around her and was whispering in her ear, not really paying any attention to other girls, despite the fact that there were a number of ladies ogling him.

The couple took off together around 2:00 a.m. Oooh.

Hopefully, Paris Hilton gave him something to remember her by while she's on the inside. Wait for her, Stavros. Don't go tang it with Mary-Kate Olsen and/or Lindsay Lohan. Again.

Ty Pennington has spoken out about his May 5 arrest for alleged drunk driving.

"I made a really bad error in judgment," the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition host, 42, tells Entertainment Tonight.

"It made me realize how important every decision you make in your life is because it affects everyone, not just yourself."

Unlike Busta Rhymes, it looks like Ty had more than one shot of Hennessy.

At the time of his arrest in the Marina Del Rey section of L.A., Pennington's blood-alcohol level was .14 percent - well above the state's legal limit of .08 percent.

He was charged on May 8 with two misdemeanors: driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher.

If convicted, he faces up to six months in jail.

"I realized if you make a mistake, I think you ought to step up and admit that you did," Pennington said. "I'm just that kind of a person. If you do something that you know you shouldn't have, stand up and accept it."

Pennington immediately apologized and owned up to his actions.

"It could jeopardize everything, including my job, which to me, is the greatest job in the world. I would never want to jeopardize that. I get to do something that a lot of people never get to do in their lifetime and actually get to make a difference in people's lives."

Asked what he might have done differently that fateful day, he says (with a bit of wisdom Paris Hilton might take to heart):

"Probably take a cab. But if we could hit rewind in our life, I think we would do a bunch of things differently. But you can't do that. All you can do is accept what's happened and learn from it."

In happier Extreme Makeover: Home Edition news, designer Ed Sanders is the new father of triplets, our celebrity gossip spies have confirmed.

Ed Sanders' wife, Gioia, a magazine and fashion-show make-up artist, gave birth to three healthy daughters on May 5 in Los Angeles: Scarlette, who weighed 3 lbs., 15 oz.; Azure, 3 lbs., 15 oz; and Lucia, 4 lbs., 2 oz.

The couple also have a son, Max, who will turn 5 in June. The three new editions tie them with Brangelina with four kids. Yikes.

The London-born Sanders, 32, who moved to the U.S. in 2004 to try his luck in American TV, confirmed his wife was expecting the three girls on his blog in January, saying they were due in mid-June.

"To say we are excited but nervous is an understatement," he wrote May 1.

He wrote in March that Max had been hoping for a little brother to play with, but soon came around, saying, "I am very happy to be having three sisters."

In addition to his new family members, Sanders has a new job: He's the host of ABC's National Bingo Night, which premieres Friday at 9 p.m.

Presumably, like Laguna Beach graduate Talan Torriero and Nicole Scherzinger, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag enjoy riding one another.

Apparently, though, they're enjoying another ride even more - the one that makes them household names despite their lack of redeeming qualities.

Gimme Kiss!

If you thought the bikini photos of her frolicking on the beach were cheesy, or if you thought his campaign to free Paris Hilton was the last you'd hear of him for awhile… you don't give Heidi Montag or Spencer Pratt enough credit.

Wearing matching turquoise tops, The Hills power couple was out for a day of fun and staged photos at the Santa Monica Pier Thursday. Spencer got a photographer to catch Heidi and himself in a completely spontaneous moment of fun once again. What are the odds? 

The looks on their faces say it all. Heidi Montag wants so badly to be an actress and look the part - blonde, beautiful, fun and oh-so-scared of a roller coaster's plunge! OMG! Yay!!

Spencer Pratt, meanwhile, is flat-out loving every second of his brief time in the spotlight and coming up with new PR schemes to get famous as we speak. He's so focused, he can't even open his eyes.

As for Heidi's new fake boobs? Well, they just aren't used to the rapid movements of a herky-jerky amusement park ride. They didn't sign up for this!

What do you do when you're so insane that you shave your head, enter rehab, then launch a comeback but get pissed because your hair won't grow back fast enough and think you look like crap in your ratty wigs that don't even stay on right?

By golly, you send your personal bitch cousin out for some new ones!

Off with the Shorts

Britney Spears' kissin' cousin, Allie, was spotted at The (aptly named) Wig Company in Studio City over the weekend, trying getting a handle on Britney's next look ... which looks like it's going to be half Pussycat Dolls, half Marcia Brady.

Allie, who's got a big-time crush on Luke Walton, is Britney's assistant and part-time driver and Sean Preston nanny.

And now apparently, you can add wig coordinator to her lofty list of titles.

Speaking of Sean P., Britney Spears raised eyebrows this weekend when she pulled over on the side of the road to change his dirty diaper. Or was it Jayden James?

We're not sure. There are no conclusive pics.

Cameras snapped her bodyguard (and Allie, of course) doing their best to keep Britney Spears and the baby hidden from the pack of photographers who quickly swarmed the car after she pulled over, but you know how the paparazzi operates.

When those foolz have a chance to see celebrity babies getting changed, they're all over that like Kim Kardashian on Ray J. Or is it Reggie Bush?

Still. Next time, Britney, you might want to try a rest area for your baby-changing needs. Or, you know, wait until you get home.

Just an idea.

TMZ reports (and eloquently states) that Enrique Iglesias "got his Akon on" over the weekend, almost getting freaky with an underaged fan at Saturday's KIIS-FM Wango Tango all-star concert in Los Angeles.

Prior to performing his sappy hit ballad "Hero," the too-sexy Iglesias brought a lucky lady onstage to serenade. When she revealed she was just 16, Enrique nervously sighed and asked if her parents were around.

But there were no graphic acts of simulated fornication in Inglesias' case, unlike the troubled Akon and Danah Alleyne, a.k.a. Diva Trixie.

Yes, Enrique Iglesias kept the performance strictly PG and chose to kiss the Hayden Panettiere jailbait lovely on the forehead instead of the lips.

Let this be a lesson to other musicians. Much as you may want to smack that (all on the floor), it's better to keep it under control until your fans reach 18.

While the concert also featured performances by Kelly Clarkson, Ludacris and Fergie, the artist who got the loudest reception at the sold-out venue was Miami rapper Pitbull.

Yes, Pitbull sang his ever so subtle bilingual hits like "Culo," as the mostly teenage (and under) crowd danced like hos in training. The end is near, friends. The end is very near.

Certain celebrity photos need little or no introduction.

Not that we're complaining by any means, but it seems the sultry Dita Von Teese is seen nude more often than not. Heck, from what we've seen of her lately, we'd think the burlesque dancing goddess only bathes at sponsored events.

Sexy Dita Von Teese Pic

Bottom line: Marilyn Manson is an idiot.

Last month, we saw her splashing around on stage, in addition to seeing Dita Von Teese nude in Penthouse. Last weekend, the former Mrs. Manson busted out her favorite pair of pasties - yes, those are pasties - in Toronto for the 2007 Fashion Cares event. 

We know Evan Rachel Wood is cute and all, Marilyn, but could she pull off wearing nothing to a fashion event? So few of us can, really.

Anyway, we were left shaken and stirred by this picture, as Dita looked dashing as always. Thankfully, Perez Hilton was not on hand this time.
