Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC's now-inaccurately-named 18 Kids and Counting, gave birth to baby #19 last night after being rushed to the emergency room.

A rep from TLC confirmed today that "Michelle Duggar, who has been in the hospital recovering from a gallstone, was taken to the OR for an emergency c-section."

No. 19 wasn't due until Spring, but at 6:27 p.m. yesterday, Michelle and Jim Bob welcomed new daughter Josie Brooklyn ... who weighed in at just 1 lb., 6 oz.

Not only is Josie the youngest of the Arkansas family's children, but she's officially younger than her own niece, Mackynzie, the first Grandduggar born in October!

The Duggars

MAKE THAT 19: The Duggar family just got bigger!

Sources say Michelle is resting comfortably and that the baby is "stable" in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

"The most important thing is for Mom and baby Josie to rest," TLC's rep said. "The family is grateful for all the prayers and well wishes during their recovery."

Congratulations to the new parents and Josie's 18 siblings! Here's wishing Michelle and Josie a full, speedy recovery after a joyous but traumatic experience.

Jillian Harris chose Ed Swiderski on the season finale of The Bachelorette this summer, shunning fan favorites Reid Rosenthal and Kiptyn Locke and sparking much debate over whether she made the right choice, given Ed's alleged cheating.

They've weathered the storm, however, and will be making an appearance on the January 4 season premiere of The Bachelor to "advise" new star Jake Pavelka.

Jake, who was rejected by Jillian Harris last season, will get her take on who to boot among first batch of women. Jillian and Ed also have an "announcement."

"Just as the women think it's time for The Bachelor star to hand out the coveted first impression rose, Chris announces a twist," an ABC press release teases.

"The ladies not only must impress Jake, but also last season's happy couple: Jillian and Ed. The women cheer as the former Bachelorette and her fiancé join Jake to help him with his tough decision, hoping that he will find a love like theirs."

Jake Pavelka will get a little help from his friends.

Could the announcement by Jillian and Ed possibly be that they've set a wedding date? Or that they're helping kill time on what should by no means be a two-hour season premiere? Probably both! And who are we kidding, we can't wait.

Will Jake Pavelka be a good Bachelor?

Saying Jersey Shore is a bad show is an understatement, and kind of missing the point. MTV is in on the joke this time, and turning the trash quotient up to 11.

The Hollywood Gossip staff has reviewed last night's episode in the style of our The City and The Hills reviews, awarding and deducting points as we deem fit.

Leave a comment with your own pluses and minuses, and your feedback in general. If our Jersey Shore review "gels" with you, we'll make it a regular thing...

Last week's episode was "The Tanned Triangle." Like the Bermuda Triangle, only less mysterious, and more exposed to the sun. Tanning bed style. Plus 2.

Jenni, like, doesn't even remember that she hooked up with Pauly. Did she forget running out da club with his sweaty tank top, too? Minus 3, you lush!

Angelina's friends are Alana and Elena. We're not sure if all "guidettes" must elect names ending in "na" to gain acceptance, but we'll buy it if so. Plus 2.

Gelled but contemplative, Pauly says she didn't want to come off like a "trash bag." Wrong show for that, sister. Minus only 1, because it's all relative.

We're only gonna say it once, because it applies every second: These guidos have enough oil in their hair to join OPEC! Sorry. Plus 2 for us going there.

The Situation

HERE'S THE SITUATION: No, really. That's his name now.

Mike, a.k.a. The Situation, can't get over Sammi, a.k.a. Sweetheart, trading him for younger, more ripped guido Ronnie. It's everyone's worst fear. Plus 3.

When Nicole, a.k.a. Snooki, comes off as the smartest, reserved and polite, our society may be done for. Or at least New Jersey may be over as a state. Minus 5.

Trying (in vain) to navigate BF drama amid the Pauly hookup, Jenni says she's been "acting like a nun" and needs to party! So virtuous, indeed. Plus 11.

Angelina's boyfriend Mike makes an appearance. The distance thing is hurting their relationship. The fact that he's married can't help either. Minus 17.

Angelina decides to call in sick from work ... only she doesn't call, she walks in late to tell them ... she's not coming in. LOL. Minus 5, because these people are obviously buffoons, but you'd think they'd have heard of an invention called the phone.

Plus 12 for the house's collective reaction to Angie leaving. That reaction being no reaction. Not even getting up off the furniture. It's an emotional crew.

Sammi + Ronnie = Real. His word, not ours. Plus 6.

Jealous, Mike unveils "The Situation." Sammi doesn't flinch. Minus 3, but Plus 9 later when Ronnie grinds with some chick, Sammi gives her number to a strange guy in retaliation, Jenni sees this and rats her out, and Ronnie leaves in a huff.

TOTAL: +13! While advertisers and locals may not be fans, you can see why Jersey Shore has already attracted a so-bad-it's-good following. Thoughts?

A court order from the High Court in London will bar British publications from publishing any nude photos and videos of Tiger Woods, reports say.

[ED. NOTE: Two weeks ago, could you have ever imagined a sentence less likely to be read on a celebrity gossip site? 'Ashlee Simpson wins Emmy'?]

This is what the life of the world's #1 golfer has come to, though. Leaked pictures of Tiger Woods nude and his lawyers trying to keep them under wraps.

The disgraced superstar's attorneys sent a letter to multiple UK papers and blogs, stating the court order better not be messed with. The letter reads:

"This Order is not to be taken as any admission that any such photographs exist, and in the event they do exist they may have been fabricated, altered, manipulated and/or changed to create the false impression that they are nude photos of our client."

Those Tiger Woods text messages are legal to publish, at least.

So in conclusion, there may not be pictures of Tiger Woods nude ... but if there are, they may be fake ... or they may not be. That really narrows it down, lawyers.

The court order also covers possible videos. It blocks publication of "any photographs, footage or images taken or obtained of the claimant [Tiger] naked or naked parts of claimant's [Tiger's] body or of him involved in any sexual activity."

That would about cover it.

Lastly, the lawyer's letter says, "Our client is not aware of any images and in any event he would not have consented to any such photographs being taken nor would he have consented to the dissemination or exploitation of the same."

Phew. That's good to know. Tiger Woods has standards. He may or may not pay for sex with prostitutes, but nude pictures being taken? The horror.

It started out like an ordinary radio interview with Chris Brown, with the singer describing his just-released album, Graffiti, and his new movie, Takers

Until someone had to go and bring up the "whole Rihanna situation."

Chris spent several minutes talking Graffiti and such on the "Wake Up Show" on Seattle's KUBE 93, even agreeing to give a shout-out to a Twitter fan.

But then the topic turned to Brown's 20/20 interview re: Rihanna.

Brown tried to deflect the first question, saying, "I'm really done talking about the situation... I'm just moving forward." But the DJ wasn't done there.

He blurted out, "F**k that, did Rihanna throw you under the bus or what?"

Before Brown could even respond, his handler jumps in, tells the DJ, "alright guys," and hung up. Awesome. Listen to the comedic exchange below:

It's a boy for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett!

Their son, Hank Randall Baskett IV, was delivered via C-section at 12:37 a.m. on Friday in Indiana, where Baskett is a wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts.

The baby boy is 9 lbs., 5 oz., and 22 inches long. Definitely the dimensions of a future NFL star like dad! Both mother and child are said to be very healthy.

Kendra Wilkinson's due date was December 12.

Expecting Couple

The Girls Next Door star announced the pregnancy weeks before she got married to Baskett in a June 27 ceremony at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles.

Sharing pregnancy news with fans 24/7, the Kendra star expressed joy – and choice of baby names – upon discovering that she would be welcoming a son.

"We already decided to name our son Hank Baskett IV," she said. "Hank's dad and grandfather were both named Hank, so we'll carry on the family tradition."

Just don't expect a sibling anytime soon.

"I told Hank, 'You know what you're getting in your stocking this Christmas?'" Kendra recently joked. "Not coal - well a little bit of that - but condoms. A whole lot of condoms. I want a little girl. In a couple of years."

Congratulations to Kendra, Hank III and Hank IV!

A man accused of surreptitiously shooting footage of gorgeous ESPN reporter Erin Andrews nude in hotels will plead guilty to interstate stalking and harassment.

He is also guilty of being a pervert and a dirty individual.

Group Challenge

Michael David Barrett originally entered a not guilty plea, but has since decided to cut a deal, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

He could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Erin Andrews' peephole stalker is headed where he belongs.

Barrett was caught after allegedly trying to peddle his Nashville, Tenn., Erin Andrews peephole tape to TMZ. Federal authorities suspected him of stalking Erin.

Sure enough, evidence piled up that he went to at least three hotels in various states and modified peepholes on the doors to shoot his pervy hotel videos.

Enjoy prison, Mike. Five years isn't long enough, creep.

Looks like Jamie Jungers and Holly Sampson, numbers four and seven, respectively, on the ever-growing Tiger Woods mistress list, are a couple of hos.

No, seriously. They are high-end escorts.

Tiger Woods on the Course

Here's the deal: One of the biggest madams in the U.S., Michelle Braun, pleaded guilty to money laundering and sending a prostitute over state lines.

Among her "employees" as high-end escorts were Holly Sampson and Jamie Jungers, and she (and later TMZ) can supply the tax forms to prove this.

Michelle Braun used Global Travel Network, or GTN, as a front to pay her escorts, which include the two aforementioned blondes linked to Tiger Woods.

Jamie Jungers: Part-time lingerie model, part-time escort.

While Jamie Jungers and Holly Sampson, based in Las Vegas, allegedly received payment from GTN, the documents do not show that Tiger paid GTN anything.

Nor should we assume he did. Guy clearly didn't need to! Braun says Woods did in fact use her services, however, and she has phone records to prove it. Wow.

The madam says both received compensation for "introductions" to men. One wonders if that's how Holly got Tiger's bachelor party a gig (she nailed him there).

Jamie, meanwhile, is set to "tell all" on Today tomorrow. Wonder if she'll be asked about what she charged by the hour to "escort" men. Somehow we doubt it.

So many Tiger Woods mistresses, so many unanswered questions. Rachel Uchitel isn't gonna like this, though. Better get crackin' on those STD screenings.

We know Holly Sampson did Tiger Woods. But did she get paid to?

Khloe Kardashian has been called many things: attention-starved, pathetic, desperate for love, much uglier than Kim Kardashian.

But the reality TV star's honesty has never been called into question... until now!

In an interview with Radar Online, Liza Morales - the ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom and father of his two children - called Khloe out as a liar

“Friends and family informed me of a recent cover story on Khloe Kardashian which had several inaccuracies," Morales said. “First of all, it was reported that Khloe and my daughter Destiny have bonded. It quotes Khloe saying my daughter flew out to LA to meet Khloe when her and Lamar first started dating, that is basically a lie."

Khlomar Pic

In the article, Khloe also said she had yet to meet her stepson Lamar Jr. because he was "too young to travel." But Morales shot down that claim, as well.

“The truth is my 8-year-old son told me he didn’t want to meet her at that time," she said.

While she may sound very bitter, Morales ended the interview on a positive note:

“I feel eventually Khloe and I should meet... some seem to be quotes directly from Khloe herself and I do know how the press can twist people’s words sometimes to be more exciting. I hope she didn’t say these things because they are blatant lies and I would hate to think she would lie about my children.”

If you wanna spend time with any Kardashian, Liza, just bring a camera crew along and they'll meet you anywhere.

Adam Lambert was honored by Barbara Walters this week as one of the most Fascinating People of 2009.

However, during the special, ABC special did NOT air a clip of the same-sex kiss that took place between the singer and his keyboard player at this year's AMAs.

Said the network in its defense: "It was an editorial decision to show very little from the performance and focus on the fresh, new interview with Adam Lambert."

Hmmm... sounds fishy for two reasons:

  1. The interview largely focused on the kiss.
  2. The network did show Lady GaGa kissing a woman during an interview with that superstar, saying of the difference: "The Lady Gaga kiss was used quickly in context of things that upset her father."

ABC added:

"The network has a solid record of showing gay men and women in primetime, which is why GLAAD has given ABC top honors for the positive portrayal of gays and lesbians for the past several years."

That may be true, but Lambert fans can't get over the double standard applied to this burgeoning star. Will ABC's statements satisfy his rabid fan base? If you're included in it, you tell us!
