Between a book signing, wedding preparations and a bachelor/bachelorette party, the script on Bethenny Getting Married called for Bethenny Frankel to act very stressed this week.

How well did she pull it off? Let's turn it over to our Real Housewives guru for the answer and the review of last night's episode...

Ugghhh... is it just me or is Bethenny starting to seem really whiny and bitchy?  I really like her and found her to be the most normal and relatable of the Real Housewives of New York City, but now that she has her own show I feel like we are seeing less of her cool and chill side and more of her annoying and super-control-freak side.

The Housewives Girl

Yes, I get that she is knocked up, planning an expensive shotgun wedding, moving in with her fiancée, and trying to finish a new book all at once - but I still don’t think these things are a good excuse for her to treat everyone in her life like garbage.  For example, how bad do you feel for the wedding planner, Shawn?  I know he’s a little bit needy and up in Bethenny’s grill a lot but what does she expect?

She asked him to plan a fantasy dream pretty-pretty princess swanky wedding with like two months notice. No wonder the dude has to ask her a lot of questions in quick succession.

So Bethenny goes to get a practice hairdo for her wedding and Shawn is driving her batshit crazy. He’s hovering a bit, but I don’t think he’s doing anything out of bounds.  Bethenny would not agree.  It looks like she wants to pull out a semi-automatic weapon and riddle his body full of bullets every time he comes near.   “I wanted to suffocate Shawn,” she says. 

Shawn notices the tension.  “I feel like we’re just not connecting,” he says.  The hairdresser cannot help but see the murderous rage in Bethenny’s eyes.  She asks Bethenny, “You’re in a cranky zone?”  No answer is needed.

Later, Shawn offers to take a load of Bethenny’s plate by assuming responsibility for the small details of the wedding.  She is so stressed you’d think she’d be grateful for the offer.  Not so much.  She is unwilling to let go of any decisions despite having a near nervous breakdown every five minutes of every day because of all the decisions she has to make. 

Even Shawn conquering the near-impossible feat of booking The Four Seasons for the wedding has not helped Bethenny keep a smile on her face. “This is supposed to be happy,” Shawn reminds Bethenny as her voice rises to a shriek.  “I know.  And I am happy,” Bethenny shouts at him.  Run for the hills, Shawn.  You appear to be aboard the Titanic 2.

Mel Gibson has filed for a restraining order against Oksana Grigorieva, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his eighth child (but not the first seven, whose mother he was married to when he knocked Oksana up, like all upstanding folks do).

The actor filed the paperwork under seal at the Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday. The plaintiff is listed as Mel Gibson and the defendant is Oksana Grigorieva.

Grigorieva was served the documents at her home. The case is sealed, meaning the documents cannot be released to the public, but reports say the complaint centers around three issues and Gibson's access to daughter Lucia.

Mel and Oksana in happier, home-wrecking times.

Mel Gibson filed for a temporary restraining order, a notice about a forthcoming court hearing as well as a notice of visitation rights and child custody.

He and Oksana Grigorieva, a Russian musician-singer, split in April after over a year of dating. Their split was described as amicable ... at that time.

However, she later hinted the break-up was complicated: "We have split up, suddenly and recently... Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason."

"But you will find out everything quite soon."

Mel has been accused of an affair with Polish porn star Violet Kowal, but it's quite unclear if that actually happened or played a role in this breakup.

Last year, Gibson's wife Robyn filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage, right around when Mel and Grigorieva conceived their child together.

Lindsay Lohan may be ordered to testify about whether she used drugs the night of the wild, Pacific Coast Highway joyride that landed her in jail back in 2007.

In addition to the DUI conviction and subsequent probation battle she's currently waging as a result, Linds also faces lawsuit brought by the people in the car.

At her much-anticipated July 6 probation violation hearing, the actress may have to face the music, or at least a battery of questions surrounding her conduct.

Lohan's attorney argued that his client shouldn't be forced to answer the questions based on her Fifth Amendment rights, but the judge didn't see it that way.

Lindsay is free on bail pending the July 6 hearing.

The deposition to take place at her attorney's office, to avoid a media onslaught, and will have a time limit of two hours, LiLo's lawyer Edwin McPherson said.

He told the court, "This lawsuit is about a two minute chase that ruined her (passenger Tracie Rice)... did this ruin her life? That will be up to the jury decide."

Rice's lawyer, Paul Hoffman, fired back, "Lindsay Lohan behaved in an outrageous way that night, and it will be up to a jury to decide what the damages are."

McPherson also went on to say that a settlement offer had been presented by the plaintiff's but it was "rejected.” He emphasized, "We will be going to trial."

It's unclear how much the plaintiffs are suing Lindsay Lohan for, but the trial in this case would be scheduled for late July if it isn't called off before that time.

A stripper claims  at Sam's Hofbrau in downtown L.A. says the the night before Michael Jackson died, Dr. Conrad Murray was in the strip club, drinking.

What that means as far as his physical state that night or the following day is completely unclear, but it's something that Dr. Murray has flatly denied.

The stripper, who's shopping her story, says Dr. Murray was drinking at the club before midnight on June 24, 2009, a charge Joe Jackson has made.

She says that after Michael Jackson died ... management told employees not to speak to anyone about it because "they didn't want to be involved."

The stripper says Dr. Murray was at the club several times in May and June.

UNDER THE GUN: Dr. Conrad Murray faces serious allegations.

Sam's Hofbrau is a couple of miles from L.A.'s Staples Center, where Michael Jackson had been rehearsing for his London concert that same evening.

The embattled doc's rep said that Michael's personal physical was not at the club the night before he died, and that Conrad Murray does not drink.

As in, at all.

Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, has sent Dr. Murray a notice of intent to sue for wrongful death earlier this week. In those documents, Oxman has asserted that Dr. Murray was at the club, drinking, hours before MJ's death.

Even if that's true, could he mean 12 or 16 hours? Would he be impaired?

Tiger Woods may have stuck his driver in one too many open bags (if you know what we mean!) - but new evidence proves these extra practice rounds did NOT lead to the one result for which a golfer can never take a mulligan:

A baby.

Over the last couple weeks, Devon James - mistress number... who the heck knows at this point?!? - has claimed to anyone with a microphone that Tiger is the father of her nine-year old son.

She stuck by this statement even after sources confirmed the existence of a DNA test that disproved Woods' paternity. Now, that test has actually been made public.

Giving credit to Kikster.com for breaking the news, TMZ has in its possession documents that say Devon was made aware in 2002 that her son is the child of some dude named Pele Watkins.

Tiger

If there was ever a reason for a fist pump...

In fact, according to science, there's a .001% chance that anyone other than Watkins is the dad. So you can breathe a major sigh of relief, Tiger.

To understand how low those odds are, consider: they are the same as Elin ever taking you back.

It's the most famous scene in Eclipse, perhaps even in the entire Twilight Saga: Bella, Edward and Jacob all end up in a single tent, as the former snuggles up to the latter and...

... we don't wanna ruin it for anyone that hasn't read the book.

But Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart sat down with the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and discussed putting these words on screen.

Shooting the scene took two days, Lautner said, referring to it as "my favorite, because it’s the first time Edward and Jacob are actually able to connect and understand each other."

Double Hotness

Pattinson describes the final outcome as "erotic," with Stewart explaining why:

"In the book there’s a serious sexual tension. As I’m sleeping, Jacob is staring over my vulnerable body, and he’s naked in this f- - -ing sleeping bag because you heat up faster that way, and Jacob and Edward are leveling with each other.

From there, the pair exhibited the kind of chemistry that has helped make the Twilight Saga so huge - and, let's face it, has made Rob and Kristen a couple, even if they won't admit it.

This is the exchange that concluded this excerpt from the interview:

Pattinson: I can’t really get over the fact that the word thought sounds like fart.
Stewart: The word thought does not sound like fart.
Pattinson: It does.
Stewart: Maybe because you are an English person.
Pattinson: The opening line of that scene is “Can you at least keep your farts to yourself?” I couldn’t quite get over that.

Sigh. We just love this pair, don't you?

It's incredible but true: Danielle Staub may not be the most despicable reality star on the planet.

That dishonor now falls on Michaele and Tareq Salahi, the White House crashers who have been confirmed as cast members on The Real Housewives of D.C.

The attention-starved wastes of space are planning a memoir about the security breach that caused them to end up at a party with the President in November. According to The New York Post, they'll write the book with investigative reporter Diane Dimond.

Dimond says the tome will "reveal the truth... of who the Salahis really are... It just never added up to me that someone could sneak in - past the [security] perimeter, no less! As I began to investigate, I realized the Salahis' story is much bigger than what's been reported."

We're begging you, America: don't encourage these people. Don't buy this book.

Slow news week? Check.

Fake Jennifer Aniston baby news? Check!

DO NOT BUY OK! Magazine. Please. Save your money, and send a message to the celebrity gossip publication's editors that they need to work a little harder.

Seriously, you'd think by the 12th time of fabricating Jennifer Aniston’s "baby plans," they'd at least try to think of some NEW lies to vaguely relay to us ...

Baby Time!

YES, I'M HAVING A BABY ... said some friend of hers.

The mag hilariously promises a sneak peek at an interview "everybody is going to be talking about." What is there to talk about, other than it's completely untrue?

The article contains exclusive details regarding these topics:

  • What the star is doing to prepare
  • Why Jen’s finally ready now
  • Who the daddy might be

Our theories: aggressive sexuality, she's not, and nobody.

There, we just saved your time and money. You're welcome. Get it together, OK! Can't you make stuff up about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt sneaking around behind Angelina Jolie's back - that would at least be a moderately interesting lie.

Upon first glance, we were taken aback when we saw photos of Ali Fedotowsky and Jennifer Love Hewitt hanging out last night.

Incredibly, both beauties attended Drag Queen Bingo at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood and got along like old pals, exchanging phones numbers so they could "hang out again soon," Hewitt said.

But the more one thinks about these two, the more their friendship makes perfect sense. With the obvious exception of Jake Pavelka (you're in your own stratosphere, buddy, don't worry), what other celebrities profit as much from their failed love life as Ali and Jennifer?

  • Ali Fedotowsky and Jennifer Love Hewitt
  • Ali and JLH

Ali will soon pretend to fall for a guy on The Bachelorette and then make new headlines a few months from now when they break up and she sells her tale of heartbreak to the nearest tabloid.

Hewitt, meanwhile, doesn't even have a show any longer. She remains relevant by whining about her love life.

Similarities aside, we must ask: Between Ali and JLH, who would you rather...

The Real Housewives are dropping like flies. Rich, spoiled, self-centered flies.

Dina Manzo exited the New Jersey version of this Bravo series a couple weeks ago, while Bethenny Frankel has made it clear she prefers her own show to The Real Housewives of New York City.

Might LuAnn de Lesseps be the next to go? It's possible, says this Countess.

“We haven’t been asked back yet. Let’s see if the show is renewed for another season and then we’ll see,” she told People magazine. "I’m going to cross that bridge when I get to it.”

If the reality TV career of de Lesseps has come to an end, don't cry for her.

Following the painful release of her single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” the Countess has signed a deal with Ultra Records and is working on a new song, “Chic, C’est La Vie." She'd also love to model again.

“I would love, of course, to be the new face of Arden. Just putting it out there, just in case.”
