If nothing else, Jesse James deserves credit for being honest and contrite.

In his interview with Good Morning America this morning, James opened up about cheating on Sandra Bullock, as well as the now infamous Nazi picture.

You know, the one where he's giving the Hitler salute. While saying he doesn't even recall taking it, he claims, "It was a joke ... that was funny then."

"Looking at it in the context of now and my life, it's not funny." Ya think?

James, who says he wanted to get caught cheating, adds that being called a racist on top of the things he did has been upsetting, and is untrue - his only prerequisite for adopting a baby was that the baby that needed them the most.

Jesse says Sandra "was proud of me" for entering rehab and that seeing Sandra now with baby Louis, who will carry her name only, makes him very sad.

He would not criticize how the situation was handled in the press, though, choosing only to praise Sandra's role as a mother, saying how awesome she is.

None of this takes away what he did, but at least he faced the music directly, unlike Mr. Corporate Tiger Woods and his manufactured non-apologies.

What do you think? Do you forgive Jesse James after this interview?

Simon Monjack, who died Sunday in the Hollywood home he once shared with wife Brittany Murphy, had a heart condition and was due to have bypass surgery.

This according a rep for Murphy's mother, who also lost Brittany in December.

"I can tell you he was excited about what the future held in terms of the legacy of Brittany Murphy," publicist Roger Neal told reporters. "He looked fine to me."

Neal said he last saw Simon Monjack on Saturday, and used the opportunity to set the record straight: "As far as we know he passed away of natural causes."

Monjack was 40, not 39 as was previously reported, he said. Also, there is no indication that he died of an accidental drug overdose, as some reports suggest.

Simon and Brittany

R.I.P. Brittany and Simon married in 2007.

"He did have a heart condition [and] due for bypass heart surgery. What's been on TMZ I don't believe is correct at all; anything that they have intimated is not correct," Neal said. "He was a man full of life and a man excited about the future."

The accidental overdose theory was floated by the celebrity gossip site yesterday, just hours after Sharon Murphy discovered him unconscious in his bedroom.

Sadly and eerily, Sharon was the one who found her own daughter's lifeless body five months ago and made the dreaded 911 call to the paramedics afterward.

"It is a very sad day for Ms. Murphy," Neal said. "In less than six months she suffered a double loss. We are asking that the media be as respectful as possible."

"She's devastated. She's very strong. I don't know how you handle something like that. She is resting. Sharon loved Simon as a son. They were a close family."

The rep said Simon Monjack dreamed of carrying on his wife's legacy.

"Brittany's dream, as was Simon's, was to help children who want to learn to do ballet, sing, etcetera, who couldn't afford it. [He] would raise money for it."

Teresa Giudice gave birth to daughter Audriana in September. But this ratings-grabbing magical event wasn't show on Bravo until last night's new edition of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

We've reviewed the episode in-depth, so sit back, get comfortable and try not to vomit over the anticis of these ridiculous, spoiled women...

NJ Housewives

The focal point of this week's episode was Teresa’s delivery of her fourth daughter.  This new baby joins her gaggle of girls who are destined to become complete bitches.  They run around their McMansion wearing hot pink tutus and dancing provocatively to inappropriate music.  Teresa delights in getting them to fling their arms in the air and scream, “Fabulous!” multiple times per day. 

The eldest daughter, Gia, is a model/pageant contestant who likes to act like she’s on a catwalk no matter where she goes.  It’s both disturbing and fascinating to watch this eight-year-old bump and grind and shake her booty wearing Daisy Dukes and a cropped top during a dance recital while Teresa cheers from the audience.

This Teresa is an interesting woman.  First of all, she seems to have the lowest hairline of any post-Neanderthal.  Her hair grows out of her forehead almost all the way down to her eyebrows.  It’s somewhat disturbing, yet she seems to pull of this unusual look. 

Teresa gained fame last season for referring to the despised Danielle Staub as a “prostitution whore” just before flipping a table at a restaurant.  This came just before she made out with her husband next to the overturned table and shattered glasses.  Something about a trashed restaurant made them just so damn hot for each other!

When Teresa realizes she’s in labor, she quickly rushes around her house to pack the necessities.  She’s ready to pop, but is still wearing a strapless top and full costume jewelry.  If it were me, I would be wearing a muumuu and slippers and cramming ice cream down my throat chased with full-fat chocolate milk. 

Teresa knows how to prioritize as she packs.  She says, “At the last minute I was packing my makeup case and jewelry.  You know, last minute things if you’re going to go to the hospital.”  Of course!  I always make sure to bring all my makeup with me to the hospital.  That and my stilettos and floor-length ball gowns.  She also tells a friend on the phone about her progressing labor, “You know I have the runs so that’s a sign." 

Way to know your body’s signs, sister.

The stars of Sex and the City 2 graced the red carpet in New York City last night at the premiere of their highly anticipated sequel.

But let's be honest: the true attraction at this event (and the movie itself, for many fans) was the fashion on display.

Sarah Jessica Parker donned a fluorescent yellow Valentino gown at Radio City Music Hall, while John Corbett went with a Ralph Lauren Black Label suit. Purchase these looks for yourself in our THG Style Store and decide below who looked best...

It's that time of year again. The Bachelorette is back, and with it a very cute girl, two dozen dudes competing for air time her heart, and a lot of contrived drama.

Bachelor castoff Ali Fedotowsky is calling the shots this time, and as usual, THG will break down the action for you each week with its official plus-minus index ...

Minus 6 for this cheese ball narration: "I’ve re-prioritized my life, but I’m still that girl who’s going to throw on a pair of jeans and kick around a soccer ball." - Ali.

Plus 5 for the montage of Ali bouncing a soccer ball, though. Man, she just looks like she's so much FUN! Sporty, even! Plus 2 more for the gratuitous ab shots.

Chris Harrison's greeting intro making it sound like Ali was head over heels for Jake Pavelka, when they engineered her exit and this story from the start. Plus 7.

OMG, Ali gave up her job and apartment to star on The Bachelorette. After seeing this awkward menagerie of men, she might want to call her landlord. Minus 4.

Cock Tales

COCK TALES: These guys will say and do anything for Ali's attention.

Is it just us or does Ali look a little more "Hollywood" than last season, like she's trying a little too hard to look hot? Kind of like, say, Vienna Girardi? Minus 5.

We could spend a long time on each of the guys, but we'll focus on just a few here. Take Ty from Tennessee. He's down home Bachelorette bait to a T. Plus 3.

Best pickup line of the night goes to Craig M.: "I'm so glad you're not Vienna." Plus 3. Minus 6, though, for so many other dudes just plain choking out there.

Chris Lambton, a friendly Cape Codder, bonds with Ali over their mutual love of the Boston Red Sox. Plus 11. We get a good feeling about these two blondes.

Derek, a.k.a. Shooter’s explanation of his nickname: ”I prematurely ... you know." Holy crap, dude. Minus 5, but at least he was prematurely kicked off, too.

The first-impression rose goes to Roberto Martinez, who not only teases Ali how to salsa dance, but may be the first non-white contestant in history. Plus 20.

Rated R Picture

MORE LIKE NC-17: Give Justin Rego credit for directness, anyway.

We hate to say it after one episode, but Ali Fedotowsky is boring in this role. Maybe she'll grow into it, but Minus 10, because right now she's a female Jake Pavelka.

Minus 8 for producers resorting to the vintage Bachelorette bag of tricks already - a hopeful tells Ali that certain guys are there for the “wrong reasons.” Shocker!

Host-pimp Chris asked each guy to write down who they feel is there under false pretenses. Your winner? Justin Rego, a.k.a. Rated R! Plus 9 for utter obviousness.

Ali's take is that just because the pro wrestler fakes it in the ring doesn’t mean he’s faking it for her. The Bachelorette spoilers we've read beg to differ, Al. Minus 8.

Forget Betty White. Someone needs to start a Make The Bachelorette a One-Hour Show group on Facebook. No Points, just saying. P.S. Friend THG on Facebook!

TOTAL: +8.

Roses: Roberto and Justin (earlier); Jesse, Ty, Craig R., Tyler V., Frank, Steven, Chris L., Kirk, John C., Chris N., Chris H., Hunter, Craig M., Jonathan and Kasey.

Out: Kyle, Jay, Jason, Shooter, Derek, Tyler M., Phil, and John N.

Christina Aguilera has spent a lot of time shooting down comparisons to Lady Gaga.

But perhaps this artist should have been promoting her summer tour instead.

Sources confirm that Aguilera's summer concerts in North America have been canceled, likely due to poor ticket sales, although the performer's reps are claiming otherwise (naturally). They say the tour has merely been "postponed" until 2011 because:

"The singer felt she needed more time to rehearse the show and with less than a month between the album release and tour date this wasn’t possible."

Hey to Fans


A true sign of whether Christina's comeback has already flopped will be when her album hits stores on June 8. If "Bionic" doesn't sell well, Aguilera may be forced to embrace her inner thespian.

She does make her feature film debut in November's Burlesque, after all.

Without a tour this summer, at least Christina can spent more time at home. Toddler son Max is a certified cutie.

The rumors have followed her around for years, but Kim Kardashian has always been in denial.

No, we're not referring to the belief that this professional celebrity has no actual talent. Kim still won't own up to that.

Kardashians Redbook Cover

But did she come clean to ABC's Nightline yesterday, confirming that she's undergone Botox injections. Kim claims "that's the only thing I've done," denying talk that her nose is fake.

"What's funny about my nose, it's my biggest insecurity," she told reporter Cynthia McFadden. "I went to the doctor, I had them take the pictures, he showed me what it would look like and it just didn't - I wouldn't look the same."

As for those enormous boobs? Kim has maintained they've always been huge, and actually delivered a funny line when asked about her famous cleavage again: "Trust me honey, if I take this bra off you will tell me I need to get them done."

Kourtney has had hers done. She was on hand for the Nightline special and said: "I have had breast implants, but it's so funny 'cause it's not a secret, I could care less."

Of course, all of this begs the question: What the heck was Nightline doing interviewing the Kardashians?!? Have we officially run out of real news to focus on?

It's sad, but true: Hollywood may be running out of attention-starved drug and/or alcohol addicts. As a result, another season of VH1's Celebrity Rehab may not air.

If it does, though, Tila Tequila is on board. Her inclusion in this exploitive, Dr. Drew-hosted series was announced earlier in the week, although no specific reason was given for Tila's casting...

... until now.

Yesterday, Tequila started a series of messages on her official website by writing: “I KNOW I am an EXTREMELY smart girl, and to run all these empires when I am not even 30 yet, is quite an accomplishment, however I finally admitted to myself that I cannot rely on taking prescription pills everyday for the rest of my life!"

Yes, in Tila's mind, running a website that one can purchase from GoDaddy.com for $10.99 is considered an "empire."

So Not Hot

While owning up to her addiction, Tila called out the celebrity gossip world's most notorious party-hopper. She wrote: “I MUST not be another “LINDSAY LOHAN” where I just flush everything I worked so hard for down the toilet for nothing…”

From there, Tequila asked us "haters" what we would do now that she's "getting help."

We were stumped by that question, until Tequila added that she planned on spinning off Celebrity Rehab into her own, sober-based show that might also include a search for a new mate.

Thank goodness, too. We were almost gonna give this professional headline-seeker props for actually placing concerns regarding her own health over plans for her career. Almost.

Seriously, who invited Tila Tequila to the Maxim Hot 100 Party?

Might Erin Andrews pull off an incredible Dancing with the Stars upset?

In our finals preview yesterday, we listed her as a long shot against favorite Nicole Scherzinger and dark horse Evan Lysacek, each of whom are more skilled.

Somebody either forgot to tell Erin she was the underdog heading into last night's final performances, or did tell her and provided her bulletin board material.

Erin Andrews tied Nicole with an aggregate 55, meaning it really will come down to every last vote. Can she muster enough support to win the Mirror Ball?

Teaming with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on a Samba to kick off the night, Erin scored a 29. Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya got a 28 on the Viennese Waltz.

Nicole and Derek Hough's Rumba netted a 28. In the freestyle round, Nicole made up one point on Erin, tying for the overall lead. Evan faltered somewhat.

Erin and Maks in Bed

Erin Andrews mauls Maksim Chmerkovskiy in bed. Art imitating life?

If Scherzinger still has a slight edge, it's because she and Derek went for the toughest moves, almost resulting in Nicole falling off his shoulders at one point.

Erin and Maks, meanwhile, chose to do a lyrical freestyle, which seemed So You Think You Can Dance-esque with props and unadulterated sexual chemistry.

So can Erin actually pull off the upset on tonight's results show - when Kate Gosselin returns, Vienna Girardi debuts and the season winner is unveiled at last?

She earned consideration at the very least. Nicole will likely get the title and it will be well-earned, but she won't run away with it. Last night's full scorecard:

  • Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Samba: 29. Freestyle: 26. Total: 55.
  • Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough: Rumba: 28. Freestyle: 27. Total: 55.
  • Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya: Waltz: 28. Freestyle: 24. Total: 52.

Janine Lindemulder is not exactly a role model for children.

After all, she just served a six-month prison term for tax evasion. It's hard to raise a six-year-old girl while you're behind bars. She's also a porn star, but no matter.

In any case, Lindemulder is now suing her ex-husband - the great Jesse James - to regain custody of their daughter Sunny. Hey, you gotta seize the opportunity.

Problem is, she can't afford to pay the legal costs to get back her little girl, of whom she lost custody while serving the aforementioned prison sentence in 2009.

Side note ... isn't Janine like a slightly hotter Michelle McGee? That point has nothing to do with this story at all, we're just saying. Dude has a type. Moving on ...

Jesse James and Janine Lindemulder may square off in court.

Now a free woman and sensing that his image is even worse than hers, Lindemulder wants 50-50 custody, but is too broke to pay a lawyer to handle the case.

Solution? Make Jesse spot her the cash!

She's filed documents in Orange County, Calif., asking a judge to make Jesse front her a cool $5,000 for legal fees. That's sure to go over really well with him.

Despite James' claim that he wanted to get caught cheating, Janine says she doubts he wants to grant her request for 50-50 custody. Likely with good reason.

As recently as last fall, Janine Lindemulder was lobbing some harsh criticism at Sandra Bullock for her role in raising Sunny. This could get ugly, and quickly.
