In the 72 hours since MSNBC fired Keith Olbermann, speculation over the pundit's future has spread widely. One rumor? A TV collaboration with Aaron Sorkin.

The award-winning scribe of A Few Good Men, The West Wing, The Social Network and Moneyball fame has a new pilot in the works about a cable news show.

Sorkin spent time on Olbermann’s Countdown set while penning scripts (he also shadowed Chris Matthews and several Fox News shows) over the past year.

NATURAL TANDEM: A collaboration among left-leaning favorites Olbermann and Sorkin almost seems overdue. The former has plenty of time on his hands ...

EW reports that Olbermann may serve as a consultant to the show, if it gets picked up, and perhaps even deliver some of his signature rants on camera.

Sorkin's failed series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was panned a few years back for the simple fact that its SNL-style comedy sketches were unfunny.

Olbermann going off on long-winded tirades would certainly give a show (which HBO is reportedly considering) about cable news an air of authenticity.

Keith's next step is unclear, but reports say he may be on the shelf less than six months under the terms of his buyout deal with MSNBC. Stay tuned.

With all the talk over whether or not Camille Grammer will return for a second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, one small item is yet to be addressed: Bravo has not actually renewed this show for a second season.

Considering the ratings for last week's finale, however, it's a safe to assume that Camille, Kim, Kyle and company will return. Simply put, "we're preparing for season two," says Adrienne Maloof.

As for her experience on the series, Maloof spoke with E! News and shared views on her status, Camille's nuttiness and more.

On her role: I would hope that I would continue to be the voice of reason. I'm the type of person that - if it's not an issue that I think is worth fighting for, there's no reason to have a third person in there, because there's just so many other things that are more important.

After Lindsay Lohan's encounter with Dawn Holland at the Betty Ford Center, during which the former staffer originally alleged she was battered by Lindsay, only to take back that claim days later, we joked that bribes go a long way.

Well, the D.A. had the same thought. Only he isn't kidding.

The Riverside County D.A.'s office has kept open the case against Lindsay, and a suspected payoff to Holland is one reason for the extended investigation.

"Riverside District Attorney David Greenberg, who is handling the case, suspects that Dawn Holland was paid off by Lindsay Lohan's camp," a source said.

"Greenberg believes that Dawn's change of heart was fiscally motivated. Greenberg believes Lindsay's camp paid Dawn off, plain and simple."

A source says Lindsay was unaware of any payment involving Dawn. That's because, Radar Online claims, Michael Lohan was the one involved.

On her talk show later today, Oprah Winfrey will reveal a family secret that she has quietly hyped as "the miracle of all miracles."

What is the news that has "literally shaken" the television goddess to her "core?"

According to Kitty Kelley, who penned "Oprah: A Biography," Winfrey will present a half-sister who was given up for adoption as a baby.

Citing an “inside family source” to The Chicago Tribune, Kelley claims Winfrey’s mother gave birth to a girl, Bunny, who she then “gave away shortly after she was born because she couldn’t afford to take care of her.” Bunny will appear with the host on today’s show.

Kelley has made an infamous name for herself in Hollywood by writing unauthorized biographies of celebrities, relying on third-person and anonymous quotes to reveal supposedly shocking secrets on stars from Oprah to Frank Sinatra.

UPDATE: Oprah taped today's show earlier this morning and confirmed this story; she introduced Patricia to the world, a woman who was given up for adoption in 1963 and who currently resides in Milwaukee.

Michelle Obama's State Dinner dress won raves from many style scribes last week, but one prominent designer isn't a fan of it - specifically its origins.

Oscar de la Renta has taken the First Lady to task because the gown she donned at the dinner, in honor of Chinese President Hu Jintao, was European.

Mugler Shot

“The visit was to promote American-Chinese trade," he said. "American products in China and Chinese products in America. Why wear European clothes?”

MADE IN THE UK: Does de la Renta have a point?

The Michelle Obama pictures above show the elegant red-to-black gown, designed by Sarah Burton from the late Alexander McQueen’s design house.

McQueen was British, as is Burton, and de la Renta thought that Barack's better half should have worn an American designer's work for the occasion.

Everyone's a critic. What do you think of Michelle's dress?

Look out, Razzie Awards. You've just made yourself a number of passionate enemies.

The ceremony that hands out trophies for what it believes to be the absolute worst in cinema has nominated Eclipse for a 2011-high nine awards. All three beloved cast members - Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner - have been recognized in their respective, insulting categories.

At least these stars can be happy they aren't Jessica Alba. In just one year, she garnered four nominations for Worst Supporting Actress.

In past years, A-listers such as Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock have been great sports. They've actually attended the Razzies (held the night prior to the Oscars) and accepted their awards.

Does this mean we'll see Stewart on stage next month, smiling for the audience as she is voted Worst Actress? We doubt it. Check out the list of major nominees below.

On the list of people you wouldn't want to live next door to, Octomom has to be pretty high up. A few of the unfortunate souls who must endure such a fate are speaking out about the relentless screaming, cackling and police sirens.

Claiming Nadya Suleman not only disrupts the community but hurts property values, Octomom's neighbors in La Habra, Calif., liken it to an amusement park.

Kids screaming, crying and fighting at all hours ... delightful. Not to mention fetish videos being filmed there. Just how bad is it? Listen to this lady lay into Nadya ...

Upside: Your living situation sounds better now right? That chick walking in heels above you or the dudes playing music downstairs seem tame by comparison.

Unfortunately, Aaron Carter has pulled a Demi Lovato.

The former boy band member has been forced to delay work on anew album because he's checked into rehab for "emotional and spiritual issues," according to manager Johnny Wright.

House of Carters

"He has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needs," said Wright in a statement. "Which in turn will help him on the music journey he's about to take."

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant has a spotty legal past: he was arrested in 2008 in Texas for investigation of marijuana possession, and in 2009 it was revealed he owed more $1 million in taxes.

New city. Same contrived nonsense.

Sunday's premiere of Kourtney & Kim Take New York on E! marked yet another reality series for this infamous family, a crew for which fame and living their scripted lives on camera has become synonymous with breathing.

Kim Kardashian Bikini

Who are we kidding, we love it. And had a staff member review it here:

Kourtney & Kim Take New York premiered last night, and I enjoyed it. I would enjoy it more were the duo Kourtney and Khloe, but we'll see where the season goes.

I confess, I'm entertained by the Kardashians.

Sure, dollar signs blur their vision more often than not, but the family makes me laugh. Kris reminds me of my mother (don't tell her I said that), and Kim, Kourtney and Khloe remind me of my sisters and I (minus the great wardrobe and disposable income).

Don't lie - you and your sisters play "Which Kardashian Sister Are You" and fight over who is who. I find Khloe and Kourtney's relationship to be thoroughly amusing, and I find Kim to be a bit boring. Ergo I'm nervous about how the two older sibs will fare together in New York.

Rihanna channeled her inner ... someone with her new wacky, uber-curly, fire-red hairstyle. Sideshow Bob of The Simpsons fame is one who comes to mind.

The wannabe TV star/murderer voiced by Kelsey Grammer has pretty much failed at all his career endeavors, but can he take down RiRi in this hairstyle showdown?

He may have a shot. Looks like she co-opted his look, and nothing beats an original, right? If nothing else, he's responsible for some classic Simpsons quotes ...
