Forget anonymous, unreliable sources.

We, The Hollywood Gossip, can confirm that the latest round of Vanessa Hudgens nude photos are very much real.

How can we be so sure? Because a lawyer from the firm of Eisenberg, Raizman, Thurston & Wong contacted our site last night and ordered us to remove the pictures.

The letter claims the images are "copyright protected" by Hudgens and were taken "at a secluded residence," affording Hudgens "a reasonable expectation of enjoying complete privacy."

We don't disagree, and have removed the pictures in question. But such language, and such a demand, makes one thing clear:

The photos are real.

Ogled At

Ogling Alert: This guy doesn't need to imagine Vanessa Hudgens naked. He can just search the Internet.

The lawyer also states that Hudgens was under the age of 18 when the pics were snapped, a fact backed up by her use of a Motorola Razor to take them.

In this day and age of the Blackberry and iPhone, what celebrity would resort to such an ancient piece of technology?

So it looks like the most recently-leaked pictures were part of the same naked set from September 2007. At least this means Vanessa has learned a lesson or two.

As for other young stars out there, take note: unless your name is Megan Fox, refrain from taking nude shots of yourself, no matter how private they're meant to be.

With Paula Abdul officially off American Idol, questions are swirling around the show.

Will she be replaced as a judge? If so, by whom?

It is with great trepidation that we report the Fox series is considering Victoria Beckham for the role, as Britain's Sky News states Posh Spice will make a “one-off appearance” as a guest judge next season.

Supposedly, the large-breasted former Spice Girl has no interest in making this a permanent job because she wants to focus on her fashion line. But London's The Daily Mirror says the offer is out there:

“Victoria is hugely flattered as this is one of the highest profile gigs in America... Network bosses would love to give her the job full-time and it looks like it’s there for her if she wants it."

As for Abdul, where will she head next? So You Think You Can Dance producer Nigel Lythgoe isn't shy about wooing the wacky judge for his show:

"With Paula's background as a dancer, choreographer and reality judge now, I don't know any one more qualified than Paula Abdul," he told The Los Angeles Times.

But back to Beckham. Is this really a good idea? Didn't American Idol see what her husband did to soccer in the United States?

Do you wanna see Victoria Beckham as a judge next season?

Selena Gomez says she's single.

Totally, completely, 100% single.

But, when asked about Taylor Lautner in the latest issue of Seventeen, Gomez also says:

"Taylor has made me so happy. I didn't know I could be that happy. He's a great guy. But I'm 100 percent single, and I'm going keep it that way for a while."

In April, the pair of young stars were both in Vancouver shooting movies. They were spotted together, looking mighty cozy and friendly, on numerous occasions.

Very Hot Stuff

Do you wanna see Taylena become a reality? Write in. Show your support!

Said Gomez of her time with the Twilight Saga hunk:

"I went to Vancouver thinking I was going to focus on my work, but instead I got to meet him, and it ended up being the best thing ever."

Hmmm... are you sure you're single, Selena? And if so, why?!?

You have seen Taylor Lautner shirtless, right? Get on that!

Whether you still hate Brad Pitt for breaking Jennifer Aniston's heart, or whether you fantasize about making sweet love to him every night, you've gotta admire the actor for speaking his mind.

In the latest issue of Parade, the topic is gay marriage - and Pitt is the anti-Carrie Prejean. He sincerely cannot comprehend why any human being would deny another human being the right to marry the person they love.

It's hard point to argue against. Here are excerpts from Pitt's interview with the magazine:

On gay marriage opponents: "They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I’ve had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment."

On Proposition 8: "I have no understanding of that kind of hatred. Maybe it’s fear of difference or of the unknown. If you feel belittled, maybe you need someone else to belittle to feel powerful...

You’ve got religion telling you what to think about homosexuality, about marriage. They say homosexuality is a choice, a lifestyle, something you can be cured of, and that isn’t true. But if you’re tucked away and have no friends who are gay, you’ll believe what the preachers say. Just think of it in terms of being in love: how would you feel if someone told you that you couldn’t be with the person you loved?”

Agree or disagree with Pitt - and please leave a comment, sharing your view - it's hard not to drool over the star. Click on the photos below and see if you can resist doing so:

Dreams can come true, they can happen to you, if you're young and drop dead gorgeous...

According to a reliable source - private chef Michele Gargani - Elisabetta Canalis isn't exactly dating George Clooney by accident; the Italian model has had her sights set on the movie star since 2007, when she first saw him in person.

Steve-O and Elisabetta Canalis

“Elisabetta was with a group of friends, and they were all speaking Italian,” Gargani told In Touch Weekly. “She went on and on about how she loved being in Hollywood, but that her dream was to meet and date George Clooney.”

For many men out there, the dream is to see Elisabetta Canalis nude. This can be accomplished by renting the 2007 movie Virgin Territory. She portrays a topless nun in it.

You're welcome, fellas.

In the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar, Leighton Meester addresses a certain foot fetish-based sex tape.

But that actually might not be the most interesting article in the magazine.

Elsewhere, Susan Boyle sits down for a revealing interview. She dishes on the sudden notoriety that came her way as she progressed on Britain's Got Talent:

"YouTube? What's that? A tube of candy? I don't think so!" she joked. "That was a shock. The YouTube thing was like a demolition ball.

"It was just overwhelming - to find TV stations camped outside your door and the phone ringing 24 hours a day. It was good. But overwhelming. It was too big for anyone to handle."

Boyle checked into a hospital soon after the talent show ended, as she suffered from exhaustion and overall fame fatigue.

In Harper Bazaar, however, she appears to be doing better than ever. Just look at the made over singer below, clad in outfits created by designers such as Michael Kors and J.Crew:

Forget possible, fictional True Blood spoilers.

We've got real, breaking, exciting news regarding two of that show's biggest stars: Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are engaged!

The actors met on the set of this HBO hit, as Moyer portrays vampire Bill Compton and Paquin plays his love interest, Sookie Stackhouse.

Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin

In June, Moyer said of his beautiful leading lady:

"There's no one I'd rather work with. I love working with her and that's how it all started, by falling in love on camera."

This piece of good news ought to make Moyer feel better about the fact that so many readers think he's far less sexy than Robert Pattinson. Sorry about that, Stephen.

It was a union that seemed doom to fail from its whacky, possibly drug-induced beginning.

Still, the relationship between Paula Abdul and American Idol lasted for eight successful seasons. Where did it all go wrong? Why won't she be returning to the show next season?

Sources told The New York Times that Abdul earned $2 million last year. For season nine, she wanted a raise... of 500%!

After the judge asked for $20 million per year, producers countered with a multi-year deal worth more than $10 million. Feeling slighted by the monster contract Ryan Seacrest signed last month, along with the addition of Kara DioGuardi, Paula walked away.

Idol Judges

On his radio show today, Seacrest said:

"She has her reasons for doing it, and if she didn't feel like she was getting what she needed, then I understand that."

Do you? Will you miss Abdul on American Idol?

Girls may be throwing various sex toys at Adam Lambert, but the American Idol finalist still only has eyes for one man.

He told E! News this week that his relationship with Drake LaBry is still going strong.

"It's going really well," the singer said while on tour with his fellow season eight finalists "It's just fine. We're dealing with [being apart] just fine."

The couple is apart, of course, because Lambert, Kris Allen and company have been touring the country for over a month now. The concerts should finally wind down next month.

"I'm excited for the future... when I'm in L.A. for more than, you know, a day," Adam told E!. "It'll be nice."

Until then, enjoy Lambert's incredible vocals, ladies - and try not to hit him in the eye with any more sex toys!

For a woman obsessed with fame, Bethenny Frankel has chosen an unusual publication in which to confirm her impending marriage.

The Real Housewives of New York City star graces the cover of this month's Engagement 101 - yes, that's actually a magazine - and goes into detail about Jason Hoppy, her presumed fiance.

“He’s kind, modest and a good person who can handle my success and my crazy lifestyle,” she says in the feature article. “Plus, he’s tall and good looking.”

That's all well and good - but is Frankel actually engaged to Hoppy? Reports claim this is all just a PR stunt. However...

“It’s not fake,” says Engagement 101 editor-in-chief Severine Ferrari. “Bethenny is a genuine person and she’s seriously committed to Jason. A wedding is definitely in the works.”

In the article, Frankel states she's seeking a “six carat oval” engagement ring. Well, sure. If anyone deserves that size rock, she does.
