The Adrienne Bailon nude photo scandal sure generated a lot of buzz - so much, in fact, that one wonders if it was all intentional. In today's Face-Off, our writers debate ...

DID ADRIENNE BAILON LEAK HER NUDE PICS ON PURPOSE?

Very Busty

YES by Free Britney

Sunday morning: How many people were thinking about Adrienne Bailon? Maybe a few dozen 'tweens who really love the Disney Channel. Tops.

Monday afternoon: How many people were thinking about Adrienne Bailon nude? Hundreds of thousands of drooling celebrity gossip readers.

Coincidence? No way. This Cheetah Girl was well-versed in the nude photo game long before she showed her spots (and ample, bare a$$) to the world.

Consider that her boyfriend is none other than Rob Kardashian, brother of Kim, and that her employer is Disney, corporate pimp of one Vanessa Hudgens.

It was Vanessa Hudgens' nude photo scandal who paved the way for Bailon's. After her nude pics (supposedly intended for Drake Bell, on a side note, not Zac Efron) appeared online, many called for the High School Muscial star's firing.

Hudgens survived. And became a much bigger star because of it.

It appears Adrienne Bailon followed this formula to the letter, manufacturing some story about "laptop theft" and "personal" pictures meant "to surprise her boyfriend on their anniversary." This paints her as a victim, but still kind of sweet. Diabolical.

The photos themselves - she's still wearing her bra, and not showing any frontal nudity, only that fine booty - are just vanilla enough to ensure she keeps her job, but plenty titillating enough to earn a few million new fans online. Pure genius.

The long-awaited High School Musical 3 premieres nationwide October 24. Will you be lining up to get in, or are you tired of all things HSM? Two staffers at The Hollywood Gossip debate just that in this afternoon's Face-Off ...

WILL YOU GO SEE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3?

HECK YES by Hilton Hater

The two most popular reality shows on TV are American Idol and Dancing with the Stars. So how is there even a debate over whether or not one should see a movie that comprises the two key elements of these programs, dancing and singing?

Indeed, High School Musical 3 is more than a chance to say goodbye to characters that have ingrained themselves in our lives (remember when Troy wasn't dating Gabriella? Feels like an economic crisis ago!), it's an opportunity to bid farewell to the East High students through dance numbers that would make the cast of Rent jealous.

Unlike Saved by the Bell, which forced viewers to sit through some brutal college years, as well as a lame movie set in Las Vegas, High School Musical characters such as Sharpay and Chad are leaving on top of their game.

None are expected back for future films in the franchise.

Having followed these teenagers through their most awkward years, we can't imagine turning our backs on them now. Especially with the senior prom featured in the movie. Who will be named king and queen?!?

In closing, the other major motion picture opening Oct. 24 is Saw V. Which screams would you prefer to hear: Those of people about to be tortured to death, or those of fellow High School Musical fans when Zac Efron locks lips with Vanessa Hudgens?

The seventh season of Dancing with the Stars is set to begin tonight. This season's cast promises to be a strong one, with no shortage of sexy pairings and compelling story lines. Two staffers at The Hollywood Gossip debate, in today's Face-Off ...

WHO WILL WIN THIS SEASON OF DANCING WITH THE STARS?

Ralph on Dancing With the Stars

CODY LINLEY by Hilton Hater

I have an apartment phone, a cell phone and a wireless connection.

In other words: Cody Linley will win Dancing with the Stars this season, if only because i'll use every piece of technology at my disposal to keep him and GORGEOUS partner Julianne Hough on my television for as long as possible.

Sure, Linley and Hough voters will have competition from horny men who have proven to be fans of Kim Kardashian contorting herself into various positions on screen. But, like boyfriend Reggie Bush in goal line situations, Kim won't come through when it matters.

Other competitors are too old (Cloris Leachman) or too uncomfortable wearing clothing (Brooke Burke) to stick around for very long.

But Linley possesses the ideal combination of youth and enthusiasm, innocence and determination, to pull it off. He's appeared opposite Miley Cyrus as Hannah Montana's love interest for several episodes of that hit Disney Channel series.

And that experience ought to serve the actor well.

If you can successfully court the most popular teenager on the planet, you should have no problem doing the same for millions of fans.

Besides Zac Efron, there's nothing celebrity gossip readers love more than sex tape scandals. Today's Face-Off focuses on one that some believe is inevitable - and if it is, will be leaked with the full knowledge of the featured fornicators ...

WILL SPENCER PRATT AND HEIDI MONTAG MAKE A SEX TAPE?

YES by Hilton Hater

Heidi Montag has long been planning a sex tape with Satanic fiance Spencer Pratt.

Why else would the talentless reality TV star have gotten breast implants in 2006? She's watched large-boobed amateur porn stars Kim Kardashian and Pamela Anderson in action. Heidi knows small chests don't move videos.

Spencer, meanwhile, has also been laying the ground work for a sex tape. Remember when he accused Lauren Conrad of filming herself and Jason Wahler getting it on?

The savvy businessman was testing the waters, seeing if fans of The Hills were ready to see their favorite stars faking something other than dialogue for a change.

Pratt has also taken on the role of director for Montag's music videos. The camera angles he's chosen for these shots make it evident he's memorized the shots Ray J set up for himself and Kardashian. The man is a pro.

Recently, Heidi and Spencer admitted they're likely to get married in front of the camera, while also stating they wish to remain on The Hills through season 10.

But with ratings down for this Monday's premiere, something has to change for Speidi to realize its dream of earning money off reality TV fame forever.

You can only receive cash for running on the beach for so long. Eventually, you need to be banging in the bedroom.

We've already debated which young Disney star is the next Miley Cyrus. But for this afternoon's Face-Off, our staff focuses on a different question regarding young starlet. Specifically, whether she's still as pure as we're led to believe...

IS MILEY CYRUS A VIRGIN?

YES by Hilton Hater

In a world of sex tapes and naked photos, Miley Cyrus is as pure as a fresh snowfall.

The allegedly racy photos of the young singer never depict her in anything less than underwear. That would be considered bundling up for truly promiscuous celebs such as Tila Tequila.

If Miley says she's a virgin, I see no reason to disbelieve her. What proof does anyone have to the contrary? A Vanity Fair photo shoot featuring her covered by a sheet?

Please.

Aside from Cyrus' word, let's look at her schedule. She's often on tour. She's the star of her own TV show. When would Miley even have time to find a boyfriend and build up the sort of trust needed to allow him into her precious garden of love?

Miley Cyrus has given us such hit songs as "7 Things" and "See You Again."

The least we can do in return is give her the benefit of the virginal doubt.

Rumors of an Alex Rodriguez-Madonna affair are taking the celebrity gossip world by storm. But is the story just that - gossip - or is this a bona fide affair? Two of our pundits sound off on the subject in this afternoon's Face-Off ...

ARE ALEX RODRIGUEZ AND MADONNA HAVING AN AFFAIR?

Madonna and Boyfriend

YES by Free Britney

The torrid affair between Alex Rodriguez and Madonna is so obvious, I don't even have to make real arguments. I'll let the facts speak for themselves:

-- Numerous celeb news sites have pegged A-Rod at Madonna's NYC pad, late at night. A source says "all the doormen are talking," too. Whether or not this source is Derek Jeter, we can't say. But doormen don't lie.

-- They hung out the night Cynthia Rodriguez gave birth to their second child! Pals don't "hang out" in such circumstances. Peeps who are boning? Maybe.

-- Madonna is frickin' ripped. Alex Rodriguez likes muscular women (Joslyn Noel Morse could beat up David Beckham). Make the connection.

-- A-Rod went on the "disabled list" April 29, but showed up at a Madonna concert April 30. Then, with Madonna on hand June 22, a clearly nervous Rodriguez was a pedestrian 1-4 with no RBIs and three men left on base.

-- Finally, Madonna's seven-year-old son, Rocco, was spotted wearing Yankees gear on June 25 while playing in Central Park. Case closed.

Miley Cyrus has catapulted to superstardom - and has already being embroiled in scandal. In Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, Disney has fresh faces waiting in the wings. These two youngsters are the subject of today's Face-Off ...

WHO IS THE NEXT MILEY CYRUS, SELENA GOMEZ OR DEMI LOVATO?

DEMI LOVATO by mischalova

Why is Demi Lovato most likely to follow in the successful footsteps of Miley Cyrus? The answer can be summed up in three words: The Jonas Brothers.

Lovato starred alongside that trio of dreamy hunks in the highly-rated Disney Channel movie, Camp Rock. A sequel is already in the works.

Cyrus has her own connection to The Jonas Brothers: a rumored fling with Nick Jonas. But - wait! - the incredible similarities between Demi and Miley don't stop there.

Each is 15 years old; each is represented by Hollywood Records; each has a parent that was a country recording artist.

But what truly makes Demi Lovato an essential Miley Cyrus clone, an artist destined to be the next teen sensation?

Her virginity.

Demi Lovato wears a purity ring around her neck, vowing never to let a man enter her sacred garden until marriage. Cyrus, similarly, attends church on a regular basis with her family and once told USA Today that faith is "the main thing."

Two talented, young stars. Each grounded in family.

Each with her legs closed and her head held high. Each on a road to super stardom about which Selena Gomez can only dream.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren welcomed a baby girl this week - and made headlines with an unusual choice of names. But how does Honor stack up with some of the other names given to celebrity babies? That's the subject of today's Face-Off ...

IS HONOR THE WORST CELEBRITY BABY NAME YET?

North West
North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.

YES by mischalova

Here's the main reason why "Honor" makes even "Apple" sound delicious:

Because boys are mean.

We can foresee conversations going on in the middle school halls right now: Did you get honor? Oh, I got honor, alright!

Just because Cash Warren was born with a ridiculous name (no offense, dude, it's given us a never-ending stream of puns to use; one might even say the name was money!) doesn't mean he needs to doom his daughter to the same fate.

The truth is, Warren and Jessica Alba are already a different breed of celebrity. They got married in a quiet ceremony, they rarely attend Hyde. There was no need to distinguish themselves from the Hollywood pack with such a unique name.

By the way, when it comes to Alba, we really wanna get on her.

See what we mean, guys? It's just too easy.

A new article in Vanity Fair says Bill Clinton has "visited" with Gina Gershon (among other women) since leaving the White House. But did Bubba actually close the deal with the actress? That's the subject of today's Face-Off ...

DID BILL CLINTON SLEEP WITH GINA GERSHON?

YES by mischalova

On one side of this issue, we have Bill Clinton. He's known for two things:

  1. Presiding over a peaceful nation during an era of economic prosperity;
  2. Sleeping with lots and lots of women.

If the former President was willing to have an affair while in office, are we really to believe he's kept his pants zipped while traveling the world for a decade?

Heck, Hillary probably gave him Gina Gershon's phone number, just to get him off... the campaign trail.

As for Gershon, her film resume isn't exactly taking off these days. (No offense to fans of P.S. I Love You).

As celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Lindsay Lohan have proven, publicizing your sex life can only result in a career boost.

Combine Bubba's liberal libido with Gina Gershon's hunger for fame and you get a fling made in celebrity gossip heaven.

Gold-digging, man-eating skank media whore or misunderstood mom just trying to get by? Since her ugly split with Charlie Sheen, it's been complicated for Denise Richards - but whose side are you on? That's the subject of today's Face-Off ...

TEAM CHARLIE SHEEN OR TEAM DENISE RICHARDS?

Charlie Sheen on The Today Show

TEAM DENISE RICHARDS by mischalova

Charlie Sheen may come across as a lovable, humorous fellow because he stars in a hit sitcom and has appeared in hilarious movies such as Hot Shots!

But there's nothing funny about the way he treated Denise Richards during their time as a couple. He allegedly viewed child porn, slept with prostitutes and hated on dogs.

Yet, somehow, Richards is the one receiving flak simply for starring in a reality show. Excuse me? Can you blame the woman for wanting to set the record straight?

This is a single, working mother that recently sent her ex-husband a text message, inquiring about his attendance at an event at daughter Sam's school. His response?

"I hope you and your worthless retarded father get cancer... Rot in hell you [bleeping] whore."

Richards, meanwhile, has been accused of exploiting her kids by giving them air time on her upcoming reality show, It's Complicated. But history shows that reality TV actually helps the careers of children. Just ask Brooke Hogan or Kim Kardashian.

Just as she did by participating in a filmed threesome for the movie Wild Things, Richards is doing everything she can to ensure the best possible future for her daughters. Sheen? He's trying to replace their mother with Brooke Mueller.

That's why we take exception to the title of Richards' reality show. Nothing about this is complicated. Team Denise all the way.
