Note to random, thirtysomething dude dating Jaimee Grubbs: don't leave her any voicemails.

According to sources, the woman that truly exposed Tiger Woods as a cheater (by playing his shady message on her phone for all to hear) has found a new boyfriend. He's a bartender in Los Angeles that also sells snowboarding equipment.

"They have been hanging out as friends for about a month, and she's been staying at his place for the last two weeks," an insider tells E! News. "But they didn't become an official couple until a few days ago when she referred to him as her 'boyfriend.'"

That's an improvement over what she allegedly referred to Woods as: her putt buddy.

Grubbs and this mystery man appeared in public over the weekend. They attended MyHouse nightclub's BE Design event.

"They want to keep their relationship under wraps, so they kept it mellow at the event," said the source. "Jaimee walked the red carpet alone, and the two connected inside."

Yes, we live in a society where Jaimee Grubbs is now walking a red carpet.

This insider adds that Grubbs' boyfriend is "shy" and that he and Jaimee actually dined with Derek Hough and Joanna Krupa, as they were all seated at the same table.

Was Grubbs texting a certain successful golfer at any point? It doesn't sound that way.

"She doesn't have any contact with him at all," said the friend. "None of her friends even mention Tiger."

Grubbs must not be friends with any tabloid newspaper editors.

So it begins.

While we're still two weeks away from the January 12 premiere of American Idol, THG has uncovered an early contestant to keep an eye on: Chris Golightly.

The Justin Guarini (and Sideshow Bob) lookalike is featured in a new commercial for season nine. We can confirm that he receives a golden ticket to Hollywood and that he has a great voice.

Why else might Golightly advance far on Idol? Two words: great backstory.

The singer refers to himself as "Orphan" because, well, he actually is one. Golightly says he was raised in various foster homes and turned to music when he was six because he could tell his story through singing. Might that story conclude with an American Idol title?

It's a tad early to know for sure, but check out snippets of his audition below...

** UPDATE: Sources reveal that Golightly has advanced to the final 24 on season nine.

He's a notorious ladies' man; they just started dating in October; and no named sources have gone on record with confirmation of their engagement.

For those reasons, we're hesitant to officially announce that Russell Brand and Katy Perry have agreed to marry - but that's exactly what Great Britain's The Daily Mirror is reporting.

“Russell knows Katy’s the one for him," an insider told the newspaper, saying Brand popped the question during a pre-Christmas ski trip. “He’s never been into a girl like he has with her and they’re besotted. He asked her to marry him last week and she quickly said yes."

Brand and Perry will tie the knot in 2010, the source claims.

Russell and Katy

If this article is true, we'll be one of the first to congratulate Brand and Perry. They do look cute together, don't they?

“Katy’s thrilled with Russell and how he is ­making so much effort," the insider said. "Russell also has the ­approval of Katy’s ­parents and everyone in the pair’s close circle knows about the ­engagement.”

Consider yourselve part of the close circle now, THG readers. Send Berry your best wishes on a happy future today!

We knew December 28 felt more adorable than most dates - and now we know why.

Former American Idol star David Archuleta celebrates his 19th birthday today.

The Star Search champion released his debut album in November 2008 and while he hasn't made it huge on the charts, Archie still holds a special place in many fans' hearts.

Below is an example of why. Check out David's performance on an installment of Live with Regis and Kelly that aired last week:

According to reports, both Dina Lohan and Michael Lohan approve of Adam Senn.

Based on their history of decision-making, that doesn't say anything good about the model.

Senn, a former star on MTV's The City, is Lindsay Lohan's latest sex toy. The pair attended Ali Lohan's 16th birthday party together last week, where witnesses spotted them cuddling, smiling and actually not snorting cocaine.

"Dina really likes him," a source told The New York Daily News. "She thinks he is good for her."

As for Michael, the dangerous dad wasn't invited to Ali's celebration. But he jumped at the chance to get his name in an article, telling the newspaper about Senn:

"If he's a good guy unlike me and he has no addictions unlike me, and he's a good influence on her unlike me, then God bless him. It's a good thing."

We hope you're sitting down, The Bachelor fans. We have shocking news about the season ahead:

On the January 4 premiere of this reality TV lovefest, star Jake Pavelka can't decide which contestants to send home.

It's a startling development, one never before seen on the 14 seasons of the show. How will this hunky pilot ever choose the 15 suitors that will vie for his heart and ABC-sponsored engagement ring?

With help from Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, of course. The Bachelorette couple will appear on the season premiere and offer Jake insightful, totally non-cliched pieces of advice, such as: select someone with whom you can see yourself growing old.

How difficult can that be?!?

Watch Jliian and Ed suprise the ladies, and hug it out with Jake, after this article's jump.

Note to Tyra Banks: if you're trying to dispel the notion that you wanna be the next Oprah Winfrey, you're going about it all wrong.

(Also, you really suck.)

Just like Winfrey did last month, Banks has announced the upcoming end of her talk show. She told People magazine today:

“This will be the last season of The Tyra Show. I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past five years.”

The self-serving gabfest - which Banks used as a vehicle to make a name for herself and draw attention to supposedly controversial issues such as vagina care - will come to an end in the fall of 2010.

Tyra

After leaving the air, Banks will focus on the launch of Bankable Studios, a New York-based movie production company. According to an insider, Banks wants to bring “positive images of women to the big screen.

In an open letter, Tyra wrote on her website:

“There’s a lot cooking right now and a lot of fire burning in my heart. And I salute you my amazing family of viewers; without you there never would have been a Tyra Show. I really love you all.”

Will you miss Banks as a talk show host?

In 2009, we scoffed at Taylor Momsen's resemblance to a raccoon.

We mocked Miley Cyrus for... everything she did.

We bowed in awe at the talents and success of Taylor Swift.

But while this trio of young beauties may seem as different as the seasons, they all followed one fashion trend in 2009: the donning of lace tights.

Below, the self-absorbed 17-year old; award-winning singer; and Gossip Girl star all show off this look. What do you think of it?
