It was a heartbreaking year in Hollywood. And, no, we're not just referring to recent troubles for that drug addicted Miss USA, Tara Conner.

On the small screen, main characters from some of our favorite shows were sent to the great big DVR in the sky.

Here's a recap of the most memorable:

  • As if the trials and tribulations of Meredith and McDreamy were not enough, Grey's Anatomy made us fall in love with Denny Duquette. And then killed him off in the season finale. George Clooney didn't love his pig as much as we loved Denny.
  • On Lost, meanwhile, fans were just getting to know Mr. Eko. Unfortunately, the smoke monster on the island was, as well. And the mysterious wanna-be priest didn't stand a chance against it.
  • We can't say we felt the same sort of loss when The OC cut ties with Marissa, played emaciatedly Mischa Barton, however. That annoying drag on Ryan worn out her welcome months earlier.

Good riddance to her. But best of luck to former real-life couple, Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody!

He may have been closer to naughty than nice this year, Santa, but we wouldn't mess with Snoop Dogg if we were you. Just bring the rapper whatever he wants.

You do not wanna be lumped in with Suge Knight on the Dogg's Christmas hit list. Trust us on that one.

Of course, Santa himself has really been making the rounds recently.

We've seen him with a pissed off - and really thin - Nicole Richie. He's also hung out with Sienna Miller and Katharine McPhee.

Who knows where the ho, ho, ho train will stop next? And, no, for once we aren't talking about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.

It's okay, Tara Conner. Let the tears flow.

Just don't dip them in alcohol and ingest them.

The embattled Miss USA was given a second chance by Donald Trump on Monday and couldn't hide her emotions at the press conference. She may be equally moved to know that one person is shockingly in her corner: grandma.

"I'm really happy for her, and I'm really proud of her," Lois Conner told People magazine from her home in Russell Springs, Ky, on Tuesday evening. "I think she made a nice statement, and Mr. Trump did too."

Awww. So while Tomiko Nash is plotting Tara's demise, it should be comforting to know that at least someone is by her side.

Lois Conner refused comment on her granddaughter's going into rehab, but as for the allegations of unreliable and even disgraceful behavior that had surrounded Tara, she said:

"I didn't believe them. I heard a lot of things that I knew were not true. It's just not her."

Really, Lois? Have you seen this Tara Conner picture? It tells a different story.

Meanwhile, Tara's ex-boyfriend, Mike Satsky, who owns the club Stereo, said: "She will do well in rehab. She is a smart girl with a good head on her shoulders."

We're pulling for you, Tara! Go hang a Keith Urban poster on your bedroom wall and get inspired.

Those behind ABC's Dancing with the Stars may need to start handing out numbers. Celebrities are waiting in line to be chosen for the reality competition.

The latest Dancing hopefuls? Joey Fatone and Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson, the Duchess of York.

No, not Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson. Focus, people!

In the case of Fatone, the former Justin Timberlake bandmate let Orlando-based Real Radio 104.1 know that he wants to compete in the reality competition â€" though he previously turned down producers' requests three times.

So why the change of heart?

"It's kind of popular now," said Fatone, who has also performed on Broadway in Rent and is currently starring in Little Shop of Horrors.

Fatone also said he'd welcome the challenge - but we can't help but wonder: isn't he a trained dancer? Mario Lopez received some flak for that and he wasn't even in a boy band.

Ferguson, meanwhile, has told TV's Inside Edition that she, too, would "quite like to go on Dancing with the Stars," where, she said, "I'd like them to teach me the tango."

A spokesman for the network told the Associated Press that the fourth season's roster of celebrities will be announced later. We hope Anne Hathaway is included.

Just because.

If you've seen those American Express commercials, you're aware that the life goal of Ellen DeGeneres was to work with animals.

We don't know if Famke Janssen can say the same thing, but she's standing up for our four-legged friends nonetheless.

Unlike other celebrities that have felt the wrath of PETA - Beyonce and Madonna come to mind - the X-Men actress is starring in ads that ask people to protects pets around the world.

While The Hollywood Gossip staff does believe there are more important issues out there than animal safety, you can't blame a hot actress for making her views known.

When we look at certain famous people and their dogs, you can't help but love them, too.

Forget launching a solo career.

Forget giving birth.

Gwen on the Red Carpet

Those challenges were nothing for Gwen Stefani.

At least not compared to the drawn out demolition of the hair edifice the singer initially erected on December 4 at the Billboard Music Awards.

This was a creation more outlandish than the pink 'do Rachel McAdams is now rockin.

But Gwen isn't the only one in her family to go against the style status quo.

Have you seen Kingston these days?

The tyke is bringing back the mohawk, essentially challenging Maddox Jolie-Pitt for for hair-spiking supremacy.

Which celebrity baby will win out?

It's hard to say.

In the meantime, check out these pictures from Us Magazine of Gwen's hairy evolution.

Stop us if you've heard this before: Eminem and Kim Mathers are getting divorced.

The couple, who has been married to each other twice - and therefore have a long way to go until they reach Pamela Anderson / Kid Rock status - reached an out-of-court settlement during a hearing at Macomb County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

A Popular Guy

The pair agreed to share custody of their daughter, Hailie Jade Scott, who turns 11 on Christmas Day. Perhaps that was what Eminem was confiding to 50 Cent about recently. Or maybe they were comparing glocks.

It's not clear if Kim was granted the financial support and attorney fees she'd been seeking from the rapper, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III. It's also not clear if Eminem actually did tang Mariah Carey for awhile, but we're gonna take his word for it.

It IS clear, though, that Mariah should shut up about Mary Carey. Leave her and her abnormally sized boobs alone!

Anyway, we may be digressing.

In the end, Eminem and Kim were married on Jan. 14 for the second time. Less than three months later, Eminem filed for divorce. Their first marriage lasted from 1999 to 2001.

Okay, the staff at The Hollywood Gossip may have editorialized that headline a bit. But it's not so far from the truth.

Star Jones-Reynolds, who was asked to leave The View in June, is owning up to her reputation as a diva �" and tells Extra she's learning from her mistakes.

Far From a Star

"I've earned that diva image. It's not something that I can hide from," she said. "I admit sometimes I have enjoyed the celebrity more than I should have. It was well-earned, but it's softened now."

Among the annoyoing, self-cented stunts she pulled on The View, Reynolds shilled for free products for her wedding to Al Reynolds in November 2004. Rosie O'Donnell may hate Asians, but she certainly isn't a shill.

Indeed, she told People magazine in July that she "believed the hype" about herself.

"I was on a hit show, doing (ads for) Payless; I was getting my health together; I met Al. I started to think, 'Oooo, I got it going on!' Now I know: Everything I had was a gift."

Jones, who wrote the self-help memoir Shine: A Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love, says she is changing her ways.

"I am rejoicing in learning from my mistakes and missteps and trips and falls," she explains. "I've learned that sometimes modesty and humility shows the most strength and courage. That's the Star that you see right now."

Hey, Star, as long as you're speaking in the third person, you're the Star we've always seen. Perhaps you should speak to George Clooney and see whay humility actually sounds like.

Don't believe that Miss USA Tara Conner is a hardcore party-goer that needs help and makes crazy Britney Spears look like Mother Theresa?

We've uncovered visual evidence that showcases the soon-to-be-rehabbing champion at her raucous worst.

Seen here - drinking underage! - Tara is certainly enjoying the nightlife. The picture was taken September 1 in Manhattan and, yes, that's former American Idol contestant Constantine Maroulis by her side.

As Conner channels her inner Tara Reid, it's apparent she needs assistance. We commend Donald Trump for stepping in and ordering the crown-wearer to spend time in a rehab facility.

We can only hope the Donald sets his sights on Dina Lohan next.

Hilary Duff must be in the forgiving, holiday mood.

Despite a difficult break-up with Joel Madden, the pair has found common ground in letting one dude who stalked them skate free from a restraining order.

Duff in Maxim

TMZ obtained documents filed Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court by the star duo's lawyers, which requests a dismissal of the restraining orders against celebrity photographer David Joseph Klein.

In October, Duff and Madden filed temporary restraining orders against Klein and his roommate Maksim Miakovsky, an 18-year-old Russian emigre.

The former couple feared for their safety and requested that a judge order the alleged stalkers to stay at least 100 yards away from Duff, her sister Haylie, Madden and his twin brother Benji.

Of course, now that Madden is dating Nicole Richie, future stalkers will probably be glad to stay away, lest they wish to get run over by a pill-popping bad driver.
