Dr. Laura Schlessinger will soon be off the airwaves.

The host announced on Larry King Live last night that her contract runs out at the end of this year and "I've made the decision not to do radio anymore."

Of course, such a decision wasn't made purely out of her own volition. Schlessinger was at the center of a controversy last week, following the repetitive use of the N word to a caller that asked for advice on her marriage.

After this woman complained about the epithet, the host replied, on air:: "If you're that hypersensitive about color and don't have a sense of humor, don't marry out of your race."

Schlessinger has since apologized, but isn't happy she was forced to do so.

"I want to regain my First Amendment rights," she told King about her decision to leave radio. "I want to be able to say what's on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I'm sort of done with that."

THG Note: Why do so few people understand the First Amendment?!? It states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..."

In other words: one cannot go to jail for simply speaking one's mind. That's all the First Amendment guarantees. It has nothing to do with a talk show host being criticized or punished for spewing offense language.

For a doctor, Laura Schlessinger, you sound like a moron.

In October, Teresa Giudice and her husband filed for bankruptcy. The couple owes $11 million to creditors and has been in and out of court this month in an attempt to stop an August 22 auction of their home and belongings.

For that reason, a recent shopping spree by Giudice makes her seem more insane than co-star Danielle Staub:

According to receipts uncovered by The New York Post, Teresa spent $8,800 for curtains and almost $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs, all since the time of her bankruptcy filing.

In response, attorney Jim Kridel has tried to keep a straight face this week as he defends his clients.

“That was the money she earned as an advance for her book Skinny Italian,” Kridel said. “Since she earned it after the filing, she was absolutely free to spend it.

"If she put it in the bank, they’d say, ‘Why don’t you pay your creditors,’ and the trustee might freeze the assets while he investigates whether she can spend it or not... Legally you are entitled to spend money you earn after a bankruptcy."

Ethically? It's not like we thought Giudice possessed morals anyway.

“She needed to re-buy furniture because she didn’t have any furniture in the house,” said Kridel. “It’s a big house  and she wanted furniture consistent with her style on the show. There is nothing wrong with doing that, except that it doesn’t look good for her to be doing it.”

The auction in question has been pushed back to October 3.

Is it possible for a beauty pageant to be too sexy?

That's the question directed at Miss Universe these days, as the organization has posed most of its 2010 contestants in almost nothing but body paint for a new set of promotional images.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Miss USA, Rima Fakih, and Miss Trinidad and Tobago, LaToya Woods, show off these looks in the examples below:

Some think these photos go too far.

"It's alarming that this has been turned into a Playboy-esque masquerade," Angie Meyer, a former pageant employee, told Fox News. "By implementing topless photos as part of the pageant process, they're putting applicants in an extremely compromising position."

As opposed to the bathing suit and evening gown segments of the event, which place contestants in uncompromising positions and are not based on appearances?

Responded Lark-Marie Anton, vice president of marketing and public relations for the organization, to the charges of inappropriateness:

"The contestants who compete at Miss Universe are diverse, as they represent more than 82 countries around the globe. Many of their cultures embrace nudity... We feel the images captured are fashionable and cutting edge!"

The Miss Universe pageant airs on August 23. Do you think these pictures cross a line?

Key details involving a washed-up rapper, bare breasts and a piece of fruit covered in human excrement are emerging regarding the Saturday night concert at which Tila Tequila was brutally attacked.

For once, the mentally unbalanced D-lister has not invented a sordid story, as multiple reports confirm that Tila did, indeed, suffer bloody wounds as a result of a rowdy crowd at the Gathering of Juggalos in Illinois.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

A former professional wrestler named Colt Cabana was in attendance, for example, and says attendees began to boo lustily as soon as Tequila took the stage and started rapping her single, "I Fucked the DJ." In response, the former realty star took off her shirt - but this only elicited more insults and projectiles, such as beer bottles...

... and a watermelon that had been soaked for two days in urine and feces, a security guard allegedly claims, which a concert goer had been saving for Tila.

Despite this incident (or maybe because of it), Cabana said he enjoyed the event, specifically the performance of Vanilla Ice on "Ninja Rap" from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze soundtrack. Really, he said that.

Meanwhile, Tequila's rep says a "lawsuit is pending" regarding the beating (which you can watch HERE); while her manager adds:

"Tila has gotten medical care for the horrific attack that happened to her this weekend at the Juggalos event in Chicago and is in good hands right now and under medical direction. She would like to thank all of her fans for all the love and support that they have given."

The entire thing is shocking. Seriously, who knew Tila had fans?!?

Throughout this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub has been referred to as a "coke whore" by her cast mates.

But spurned ex-convict Daniel Aguilar went one step further this week, telling Radar Online the troubled reality star is a "snitchin’ coke whore." And, according to sworn testimony by Aguilar, he should know.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Last Thursday, Aguilar was deposed under oath as part of Kevin Maher's defamation lawsuit against Staub.

A former drug dealer who was arrested in a kidnapping and drug distribution scheme with Staub three decades ago, Aguilar went to jail because Staub turned on him.

He said he met Staub when she worked as a prostitute and used the names Beverly Merrill and Angela Minelli. The pair started dating and working together, with Staub approaching Aguilar at one point and asking for four kilograms of cocaine to sell to her neighbor.

Aguilar provided the drugs.

But the neighbor never paid for the cocaine, and Aguilar believes he was ripped off by Staub and this man.

A slightly nutty two-time contestant and one-time winner of The Bachelor was charged with DUI this morning in Tampa, Fla. Good ol' Mary Delgado.

Mary, whose real name is Maribel Delgado, won the sixth season of the reality show and once beat up Byron Velvick, whose final rose she accepted.

Delgado, a former cheerleader with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers, faces a charge of misdemeanor DUI after refusing a blood alcohol test.

She was later released on $500 bail.

Mary Delgado Mug Shot (2010)

Mary Delgado's mug shot: 2010 edition!

This isn't Delgado's first run-in with the law. She was arrested in 2007 in Seminole, Fla., on battery charges for allegedly punching Velvick in the face.

More than a year later, in November 2008, Mary was hauled off to jail for public intoxication, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in Del Rio, Texas.

The couple weathered ups, downs and beatings for years, but never married and went their separate ways in December 2009. Pretty sad story.

On the plus side, Vienna Girardi is no longer the biggest train wreck to have ever won The Bachelor. Take comfort in that, V - you're no Delgado!

If you think Gordon Ramsay gets angry at a contestant on Hell's Kitchen, imagine how this reality star will react when he reads "Memoirs of a Mistress: My Time With Britain's Most Fiery Chef!."

That's the title of the upcoming Sarah Symonds biography, in which Great Britain's version of Rachel Uchitel exposes the details of an alleged affair she carried on with Ramsay.

“I plan to set the record straight,” Symonds told Radar Online, giving us a great example of what she means:

“The fact is that Gordon and I had a long relationship, before he became this fame-ravaged, foul-mouthed monster he is today... Gordon’s time was always so limited when we met, so there was a reason why I called him ‘Flash Gordon’ in the bedroom."

Symonds adds that "the book is packed with hilarious escapades, great fun, great sex and great arguments."

Incredibly, this won't be the first time the promiscuous female has penned an affair-based memoir. She previously wrote "Having An Affair? A Handbook For The Other Woman," which followed a fling with British author and politician Jeffrey Archer.

Somewhere, Michelle McGee is wishing she had thought of that title first.

Is there really a Fantasia sex tape?

Earlier this week, Paula Cole filed for divorce from her husband and cited his affair with the former American Idol champion as the basis for their break-up. In court documents, she even claimed Fantasia and Antwaun Cook "recorded their illicit activity."

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

In other words: they went all Kim and Ray J on each other!

Now, through her reps, Barrino is speaking out against the allegations - and sort of, kind of, partially denying them.

Would you tape yourself hitting this? Possibly, if you're Antwaun Cook.

Fantasia's manager, Brian Dickens, has released a statement that says his client is "certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of the Cook's marriage." It also reads:

"Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges. Fantasia's faith in God, herself and family remain as strong as ever."

Speaking to TMZ, meanwhile, Fantasia's lawyer grew even harsher. Said Gena Morris: "Mrs. Cook gratuitously included claims about Fantasia to sensationalize that litigation and to insure that her tale would be picked up by tabloids."

THG is making no judgment, nor are we taking a side. But there's not actually a denial of relations between Barrino and Cook anywhere in here from Fantasia's team, is there?

Another day, another offensive Gibson rant ... this time not by Mel, though!

Mel Gibson’s controversial father, Hutton Gibson, told Liberty News Radio that "half the Vatican" is gay and that Pope Benedict XVI is a homosexual too.

Asked by Radar Online to confirm those remarks, the elder Gibson, 91, did so and then some, saying: “That is correct – I stand by my statements."

“The Vatican is full of all these child molesters, that is all there is to it.”

Hutton Gibson shocked listeners on the Political Cesspool Radio Program with his take on why the Catholic Church has failed to tackle homosexuality.

He calls Pope Benedict was “a homosexual” and “a slippery character” involved in a Masonic conspiracy out to destroy the Catholic Church from within.

Hutton Gibson is not a huge fan of the Pope.

Mel Gibson’s father attends his alternative Catholic Church in Malibu and has so far not spoken about the actor’s alleged abuse of Oksana Grigorieva.

This is a rant that gives Mel a run for his money, though.

The outspoken critic of the Catholic Church questioned in a 2003 interview how Nazis had disposed of six million bodies during the Holocaust, and claimed that the September 11, 2001, attacks were perpetrated by remote control.

Now, Hutton Gibson claims the Catholic Church isn’t fighting the repeal of Proposition 8 “because half of the people there in the Vatican are queer."

"They have not handled the horrible situation in the church. In fact they have fostered it because as I say they are trying to destroy the church.”

Asked if he thinks the Pope is gay, Hutton replied, “I certainly do. Why else would he put up with this? He was in charge of stamping it out."

Last week, Charlie Sheen was sentenced to 30 days in rehab for his infamous Christmas Day fight with Brooke Mueller. But it's clear this actor belongs behind bars.

According to a newly-released police report, the December 2009 attack - in which Sheen allegedly held a knife to his wife's throat - wasn't the first time these two got into it physically. Both Sheen and Mueller confirmed to officers on the scene that day that Brooke had suffered head trauma during an incident a couple months earlier.

The two sides disagree on whether that injury was inflicted intentionally, however.

Wrote Officer Rick Magnuson: "I asked [Sheen] if he ever harmed Mueller in the past. [Sheen] stated that approximately two months ago, in California, Mueller accused him of sleeping with prostitutes. [Sheen] stated that he denied this allegation, which escalated into a 'huge fight.' He added that when Mueller attempted to leave the argument, he grabbed her by the wrist, causing her to fall to the ground."

The Two and a Half Men star acknowledges Mueller sought medical treatment at the time, but claims he was acting to simply restrain his wife when the accident occurred.

Outside Court

But Brooke told a different story.

When Magnuson questioned Mueller about the fall 2009 fight, she got "upset," he wrote in his report, adding that neither side contacted authorities to report this altercation. "She was very adamant that [Sheen] intentionally hurt her by throwing her to the ground, like a 'rag doll.'”

What does the band Train have to do with any of this?
