Sarah Palin is understandably far from pleased that writer Joe McGinniss rented the house next door to her while authoring a book about the former governor.

But stalking allegations? Really, Sarah? That's pretty low ... but from someone who demands straws that bend at speaking engagements, are you shocked?

McGinniss said on the Today show this morning that despite accusations from the political lightning rod, he's not harassing them. Quite the opposite, in fact.

"If I lived here and did something creepy, if I did what Sarah Palin is suggesting, that would be creepy," McGinniss said. "I'm not observing them at all."

"I don't care what they do in the privacy of their own home," he continued. "I'm here to talk to people who have known them for 40 years in Wasilla."

McGinniss claims he got a good deal on a rental that happens to border the Palins' property, and would have taken it if "Sarah Palin lived on the moon."

WELCOME TO WASILLA! Sarah Palin is far from pleased with her new neighbor.

True or not, the 67-year-old writer is next door, leaving the maverick concerned for her privacy and questioning McGinniss's motives ... on Facebook, natch.

"Wonder what kind of material he'll gather while overlooking Piper's bedroom, my little garden, and the family's swimming hole?" Sarah Palin wrote online.

McGinniss denies he did any of that, or that he is trying to drum up publicity for his book, claiming he told no one outside his family where he was living.

"Then Sarah hysterically puts up this Facebook page with all sorts of ugly innuendo, which frankly is revolting," he says. "She has created all the publicity."

McGinniss, known mostly as a true-crime writer, has reportedly received death threats thanks to Palin triggering outrage from right-wing media outlets.

Palin "unleashed the hounds of hell," he says, comparing her tactics to that of Nazi troopers in the '30s. Maybe he should send over a nice fruit basket?

Like parents across the country, Kate Gosselin enjoyed a nice, relaxing Memorial Day weekend at home with the kids. But it's back to reality TV soon!

With Dancing with the Stars now behind her, Kate's new TV effort is the revamped Kate Plus 8, which kicks off this coming Sunday, June 6, on TLC.

Dead Opossum Style

You know you missed her.

Fittingly, it's been exactly a year since Jon and Kate Gosselin split. Leaving her husband behind, the reloaded show will feature the single mom alone.

She's so excited to turn over a new leaf with the new Kate Plus 8, she's billing herself "Clean Slate Kate." We prefer "Irate Kate," but whatever works.

Didn't you miss your weekly Kate Gosselin fix?!

It'll be great to see those eight little faces back on screen in any case. No word if their trips to the child psychologist will be featured, or if Kate needs help parenting.

Will you watch the reloaded Kate Plus 8?

Tragedy has struck the family of veteran journalist Ted Koppel.

The broadcaster's 40-year old son, Andrew Koppel, was found dead early this morning in New York City.

An attorney for the city Housing Authority, Andrew was discovered in a Washington Heights apartment, where he was brought earlier in the evening by Russell Wimberly, a waiter he had met at a Hell's Kitchen bar on Monday afternoon.

Koppel "was just really messed up when he came in. He was very drunk," Belinda Caban, a resident of the apartment building, told The New York Post.

Caban said she and Wimberly called 911 after they found Andrew Koppel had urinated and defecated in the bed he passed out in. Medical personal announced him dead at the scene.

According to Wimberly, Andrew started his drinking binge around noon at Smith's Bar & Restaurant at 44th Street and Ninth Avenue. That's where the pair met, drinking whiskey and making small talk before moving from bar-to-bar.

"There was a lot of alcohol. He didn't take anything else [drugs] around me, and neither of us ate all day," Wimberly told the newspaper. "We talked about our kids... He said he had a kid and loved [her] a lot."

Andrew lived with his girlfriend and their daughter.

He was the third youngest of Ted Koppel's four children with wife Grace Anne. The Nightline host is yet to comment on the incident and our thoughts go out to his family.

When God sat down to craft the perfect celebrity, He likely came up with Heidi Klum.

This super model has four children; has been happily married for five years; is involved in numerous charities; makes millions of dollars a year; and looks great naked.

She and Seal renew their vows once per year because, as Heidi beautifully puts, "it's about remembering this moment of love we gave to each other and reinforcing it. It's so special to us, something we love and something our children have gotten accustomed to."

Simply Beautiful

Klum made a cameo in The Devil Wears Prada and has also found success on the small screen. She hosts Project Runway and has guest-starred on such hit shows as How I Met Your Mother and Sex and the City.

Heidi turns 37 today and, yes, this is all an excuse to honor the birthday gal with a photo montage. Sit back, ogle the beauty below and be sure to send your best wishes to her on this special day...

For the first time since his wife was killed in Cancun, Bruce Beresford-Redman has spoken out.

The former Survivor producer has officially been charged with "qualified homicide" by Mexican authorities, seven weeks after Monica Beresford-Redman was found strangled to death in a sewer near the Moon Palace resort, where the couple had been on vacation.

"I am devastated at her loss; and I am incensed at the suggestion that I could have had anything to do with her death," Bruce said in a statement yesterday, responding to his arrest warrant. "I am innocent."

Bruce has been the sole person of interest in the case because sources confirmed he'd been having an affair, and witnesses spotted Bruce and Monica arguing on the beach the night she was killed.

Continued Bruce in his statement:

"Monica was the axis around which our whole family revolved. From her sisters and parents to my parents and of course to our children and me, she was everything to us. My children have had one parent taken from them by a senseless act of violence. I implore the Mexican authorities not to take their remaining parent by a miscarriage of justice and to do what is right not just what is expedient."

Beresford-Redman returned to the United States last week, against the wishes of Mexican officials. He's filed for full custody of his two young children. If necessary, Mexican authorities will extradite him to their country.

Attorney Richard G. Hirsch referred to the warrant as "extremely disturbing" and said his client was "innocent of this crime and is prepared to defend himself in a court of law."

He'll eventually get the chance to.

After weeding out the total nut jobs on The Bachelorette premiere, Ali Fedotowsky got down to business last night and actually went on dates with the guys.

Not to say some loons didn't make it through to create more drama, particularly between scary Craig M. and meek weatherman Jonathan. What went down?

THG breaks down all the action below in its plus-minus index ...

Ali and Frank's date features their vintage car breaking down on a jam-packed freeway. That would be pretty hard for the producers to stage, at least. Plus 3.

As they go up to the Hollywood sign, Frank acts as if Ali ganked a key from someone and the producers didn't somehow arrange all this ahead of time. Plus 4.

On Hollywood Blvd., people flock for autographs and pictures with them. Did ABC plant those "fans"? Are people really that obsessed with celebrities that they will fawn all over ... Ali Fedotowsky? Either way, it's worthy of at least Minus 10.

Ali Fedotowsky Bikini Picture

A GOOD CHOICE: The guys salivate over Ali. It's easy to see why.

On second thought, when the group date guys (and viewers) get a look at Ali on the beach in Malibu, maybe the blatant ogling makes a little more sense. Plus 20.

Ty, reading the group date card: "Jonathan ... is NOT going." Plus 4.

Craig M. altercation #1: He needles Jesse relentlessly, only to be shut down when Jesse says: "I don't talk $h!t, I just hit." Craig M.: "Huge rebuttal." Minus 5.

The group date is a photo shoot for a Men of The Bachelorette calendar for charity. With a few exceptions ... well, let's just say we feel for the charity. Minus 6.

The Weatherman is way, way too nervous about a Speedo. Minus 7.

Ty confesses that he was married before. He plays guitar for Ali because his ex-wife never wanted to listen to it. The male Tenley Molzahn, everybody! Plus 5.

Craig R. goes after Justin Rego, who he says lied by omission when he didn't reveal he's a pro wrestler. We're not big Rated R fans ourselves, given what The Bachelorette spoilers indicate he does to Ali, but lay off, Craig! Guy's on crutches! Minus 8.

Jonathan Novack Picture

STORMY WEATHER: Jonathan Novack may be whiny, but we're totally in his corner when it comes to the feud with Craig M. Fortunately, Ali made the right choice, too.

Craig M. altercation #2: Ripping on Jonathan continuously and for no reason. He rats her out to Ali as "dangerous." D!ck move, but Craig had it coming, so ... Wash.

For Jesse's solo date, they jet off to Las Vegas. Plus 6, 'cause while not a master of conversation, he gets a bit of a bad rap, as he seems nice and honest enough.

Chris Lambton is sad he didn't get a date, but he and Ali bond at the cocktail party over being from Massachusetts. We've got a good feeling about him. Plus 11.

Roberto Martinez, similarly, pays Ali many compliments and they seem smitten. He and Chris were small players this week, but are the main contenders. Plus 5.

Minus 4 for the dudes creepin' in the background though. Subtle, fellas.

Craig M. altercation #3: He accosts Jonathan, who, rather than lying or coming clean, says it doesn't matter who outed him, further angering the sociopath. Minus 5.

Fortunately, Craig M. got the boot. Plus 10, because while troublemakers usually entertain, this egomaniac meathead with used car salesman hair is just a waste.

TOTAL: +13. SEASON: +21.

Roses: Frank, Jesse and Ty (won on dates earlier in the night), Kasey, Hunter, Roberto, Chris L., Justin, Steve, Kirk, John C., Craig R., Chris N. and Jonathan.

Out: Tyler V., Craig M. and Chris H.

A newborn was taken home this week; a nine-year old received lavish gifts at her birthday party; and, of course, Danielle Staub was at the center of all the drama. Incredibly, she managed to come across worse than ever. That's hard to do.

Follow along with our Real Housewives reviewer as she goes inside the fifth episode of season two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. As usual, the show was both nauseating and entertaining...

Sweet fancy Moses!  Tonight’s episode was so crazy I actually felt stressed-out watching it.  I got all hot and my heart was racing.  This show is proving to have an adverse effect on my health.  Reminder to self:  Must take a Xanax chased by an entire box of wine followed by an entire carton of Blue Bell Old Country Ice Cream before watching next week.

Everything started out sweet... well, sort of.  Teresa and Shirtless Joe (who, shockingly, wore a shirt the entire time but I still like that nickname) brought baby Audriana home.  The baby got to enjoy sister Gia’s ninth birthday party.  This was quite an event!  Teresa hired a hot pink limo to take Gia and her friends to a spa to get facials, manicures, fancy hairdos, and then, oddly, to form a mosh pit and grind under a disco ball. 

Spas where I live don’t typically have disco balls and dance floors, but perhaps I am just ignorant on this subject.

The Housewives Girl

Let’s just pause for a moment on this birthday party, okay?  When I was nine would I have wanted a facial and a fancy hairdo?  Hell no!  I would have wanted a homemade cake, a Pound Puppy or two, and probably a few runs down the Slip n’ Slide in my backyard.  Judging by the faces of some of the little girls in attendance at this party, they were thinking the same thing.  Their expressions ranged from excited to confused, perplexed, and overwhelmed. 

I could so identify with the more freaked-out girls. Who doesn’t remember being invited to a birthday party that you instantly regretted attending?  Some of those poor kids looked like they just wanted to call their moms and escape from Teresa’s World of Tutus and Insanity.

While I do think Teresa is a genuinely loving mom and I know she only wants what is best for her daughters, she is teaching them from infancy that materialism is the greatest value one can possess. She brags to us, “Gia is my oldest and it’s her ninth birthday today.  And of all my daughters she is the most high-maintenance, so I want her party to be an event to remember.” 

Umm... maybe she’s so high-maintenance because you insist on making everything an “event to remember."  If you didn’t make such a big stink over every little thing, your daughter wouldn’t be a “diva." Teresa goes on to say, “Gia is a total girly-girl.  Teresa only raises divas, not tomboys.”   

Being a diva isn’t like being born with brown eyes; one has some control over it.  Teresa seems essentially kind and sweet, but I really do wonder what her daughters will be like when they grow up.  I imagine they won’t be what Teresa is hoping for.

But let’s move on to the focus of tonight’s episode:  The Showdown at the Brownstone!

In a recent interview with Billboard, Miley Cyrus made it clear she loves her own music.

But the singer also opened up about something she hates, in a rambling, nonsensical way. Asked about the Fox smash Glee, Miley said:

“Honestly, musicals? I just can’t. What if this was real life and I was just walking down the street on Rodeo Drive and all of a sudden I just burst into song about how much I love shoes?"

She then paused, laughed and patted herself on the back, saying: "It would get you hits on YouTube.”

Ah, classic Miley: not giving credit to another musical sensation, and also pointing out just how popular she is with that YouTube comment.

Cyrus in Concert

Someone should probably tells Cyrus that maybe she "can't" handle musicals, but over 13 million people can. They tune in to Glee each week.

So, is there any musician out there Miley does respect? Lady Gaga, she says.

“Unlike a lot of artists, all her music does mean something personally."

Do you wanna tell Miley that Gaga recently said it was a dream come true to have her songs covered by Glee? Or should we relay that message instead?

Sarah Ferguson, a.k.a. Fergie, a.k.a. Britain's Duchess of York, says she was drinking and "not in my right place" when she was caught in a sting operation.

The set-up? Ferg was caught on video offering access to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for $724,000. She told Oprah Winfrey she was "in the gutter."

"I'm aware of the fact that I've been drinking, you know. I was not in my right place," Sarah Ferguson said in an interview set to air on Oprah on Tuesday.

Ferguson said she had seen the video while traveling through airports recently but had not sat down to watch closely: "I haven't faced the devil in the face."

According to transcripts of the show, the Duchess says "I was in the gutter at that moment." We're inclined to believe it, given the accusations in this case.

TROUBLED DUCHESS: Sarah Ferguson has some explaining to do.

Tape of the sting was posted by London's News of the World, which set up the meeting. Ferguson asks for $40,000 cash and 500,000 pounds ($718,500).

In exchange for that wire transfer, she agrees to introduce the paper's undercover reporter to the prince - reportedly under the guise of a business meeting.

"I can open any door you want," Ferguson reportedly said in the video. 

The newspaper's big sting operation has caused a major embarrassment for the 50-year-old Sarah Ferguson, who has a pair of daughters with Prince Andrew.

Andrew is the second son of Queen Elizabeth and fourth in line to the throne. The prince is also known as the Duke of York. The couple divorced in 1996.

He acts as Britain's special representative for international trade and investment, so surely this can't be going over well across the pond. More to come.

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee is still talking. She's still sounding inane and trying to get attention. If you're still interested, read on and hear what she said.

Jesse James' mistress is defending recently unearthed photos of herself wearing Nazi regalia, saying "I don't believe it's racism at all. Anti-Semitism? Yes."

The Bombshell

"If that was the intention of putting the costume on."

Toronto TV program etalk interviewer Elaine Lui pointed out that Anti-Semitism is racism. McGee said: "That's your view on that. I don't see it that way."

Okay then.

The pictures in question were followed by a similarly absurd Jesse James Nazi photo. He said on Nightline it "makes me really sad" to be called a racist.

Michelle McGee: Not racist. Just anti-Semitic.

Having not exhausted her daily quota of ridiculous comments, Michelle "Bombshell" McGee also believes she did Sandra Bullock a favor by boning James.

"In a twisted type of way," she opines, "I guess Sandra should be thankful that I did come forward and let her know that her husband did cheat on her."

The controversial model/stripper was in town to promote infidelity in a commercial for Ashley Madison, an online dating service for those in relationships.

"I have two beautiful boys to take care of, I'm a single mom," she said of making money from the pro-adultery site. "So yeah, I have profited off of this."

No kidding.

"It's my first priority to take care of my kids, to make sure they have a roof over their heads and food. I will do what it takes to support my children."

They have a great role model, that's for sure.
