For the first time, Bryce Dallas Howard is speaking out about her 2007 case of postpartum depression.

In an essay on Goop.com, the Eclipse star writes that she was "mortified" by her weight gain while carrying son Theo and then, after he was born:

Bryce and Son

"I felt I was failing at breast feeding. My house was a mess. I believed I was a terrible dog owner. I was certain I was an awful actress."

Postpartum depression reveals itself in many ways - from anxiety to loss of sleep to reduced libido - and affects between 5% to 25% of new mothers, with percentages varying based on the severity of the symptoms.

Worst of all, Howard says: "I definitely felt I was a rotten mother - not a bad one, a rotten one. Because the truth was, every time I looked at my son, I wanted to disappear."

The actress adds that she screamed expletives at husband Seth Gabel and exhibited behavior "he had never experienced in the seven years we had been together."

But, fortunately, Howard got help, which included reading Brooke Shields' "Down Came the Rain" and speaking to a therapist. She now describes herself as happier than ever.

When Howard was first announced as the replacement for Rachelle Lefevre in Eclipse, Twilight fans were outraged. But their anger was never directed at the actress herself - and we're sure we speak for all of them when we say:

Glad you're doing better, Bryce!

Lindsay Lohan's fellow Lynwood Correctional Facility inmates give Mean Girls a whole new meaning. Most of the women housed near LiLo are killers.

As in people actually doing time for murder.

Lohan expressed fears of being housed with these inmates since being thrown in jail two days ago, but has not received any special treatment yet.

She did enjoy some slightly less reprehensible company yesterday, though, when she was paid a visit by her mother, Dina, and her little sister Ali.

"Tears were shed," a source close to the family said. "The visit was very emotional, but Lindsay's spirits were lifted, seeing her mom and sister."

As for Michael Lohan? He may join her in prison.

Court Date Hottie

SPRUNG: If Lindsay behaves, like she has so far, she'll be out quickly.

Visiting hours at the jail are typically limited to weekends, but in this case, the troubled actress was allowed an exception - for security reasons.

"Lindsay might receive visitors after official visiting hours are over for security reasons," a jail official said. "It's for the safety of everyone."

Meanwhile, Lohan has been serving out her 90-day sentence - which is expected to be reduced to just 14 days due to overcrowding - in peace.

She's "cool, calm and sleeping a lot," says a source. "She's not a mess at all. She's keeping to herself ... and really handling it pretty good."

She may not have to handle it much longer, either. Says her attorney:

“It's our expectation that Ms. Lohan will get additional time credit from her earlier times in custody and that would reduce her time in jail."

Lindsay was expected to be released on August 1, or after two weeks, but according to Shawn Chapman Holley, she may be sprung sooner.

Judge Marsha Revel will decide how much time credit Lohan will receive and then send a minute order over to the L.A. Sheriff's Department.

Alice Tan Ridley is moving on!

The mother of Oscar-winning actress Gabourey Sidibe first impressed America's Got Talent viewers and judges with her audition in mid-June.

Since then, the woman who formerly sang in NYC subway stations has proven to be more than a one-hit wonder - and last night fans rewarded Ridley by voting her into the semifinals. Judges Piers Morgan and Howie Mandell approved of the decision.

Morgan referred to Alice as "brilliant," while Mandell agrees: "Every time she moves on, it’s heartwarming and moving."

In other America's Got Talent news, dancers AscenDance, singer Michael Grimm and magician Antonio Restivo also moved on to the next round.

If Ridley takes home the crown, she'll actually improve upon the fortunes of Susan Boyle, who finished second on Britain's Got Talent. Best of luck, Alice!

Sadly, Color Me Badd singer Bryan Abrams has forgotten the message from his group's chart-topping 1991 single, "All 4 Love."

For the second time in two years, Abrams has been arrested on charges of domestic abuse. The latest incident took place in Hawaii, as Honolulu police booked Abrams for harassment after he and his wife got into an argument, and he allegedly tossed her across the room.

In September 2008, the singer was charged with domestic abuse and assault and battery after reportedly smacking a girlfriend and threatening to kill her at an Oklahoma restaurant.

There's no truth to the rumor that Mel Gibson called Abrams this week and congratulated him on a job well done.

Did Mel Gibson admit domestic violence via text message?

According to a new report allegedly containing a message from the actor to Oksana Grigorieva, he did, addressing their January 6 altercation after the fact.

Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson Picture

"Oksana, I wasn't safe for you last night," he supposedly wrote to his now-former girlfriend, who he's now under investigation for domestic violence against.

Radar Online claims possession of Mel Gibson text messages sent a day after he allegedly punched Oksana in the head as she was holding their baby Lucia.

Oksana's abuse allegations have been clouded by Mel claiming he is the victim of extortion, which police are also investigating. How does the text fit in?

According to Radar, the star sent this text on January 7:

"I spent two hours with a therapist today and have regained some perspective. What I am telling you know is I am safe & would like to come by and make amends to you, Sascha and Lucia. I won't stay, just let you say your peace and I'll say mine."

That apologetic text, if authenticated, would seem to be an admission of violence and corroborate some comments on the inflammatory Mel Gibson tapes.

Again, the dual debates over the authenticity of the recordings and text messages, as well as whether Oksana was using them to try to shake down Mel.

On the phone calls she taped, Mel told Oksana she "f*%king deserved it" after she complained about him hitting her, and that "no one will believe [her]."

The text message exchange is in Oksana's phone, Radar says. She was ordered to surrender it to the authorities as part of the official investigation.

He also references Alexander, or Sacha, Oksana's 12-year-old. Mel is also accused of attacking her son, though he says eyewitnesses will deny this.

Follow the jump for the full exchange and see what you think of this basically one-sided conversation. Do you believe it's legit? Does it prove anything?

Bristol Palin is one of the most famous teenagers in the country.

She's the daughter of a Presidential candidate and an unwed mother who isn't just marrying the guy that knocked her up and publicly bashed her family for months on end - she's profiting from the arrangement by selling her story to supermarket tabloids!

Say what you want about Bristol - and, trust us, THG has - but she's the perfect candidate for a reality TV show.

Still, Bethenny Frankel claims she doesn't see the appeal.

Bristol Photograph

Bethenny Frankel thinks viewers are interested in her life, but not that of Bristol Palin. She may be more delusional than Bristol's mother.

"If it was her mom getting married or remarried it would be interesting," Frankel said to E! News yesterday. "If it was Sarah was raising the baby, maybe. But what's the deal with the two of them?

"I don't know what they are and I don't even know who they are. I don't get it. And it would be too awkward to watch them in something L.A. because they don't belong there."

Someone sounds awfully defensive. Frankel can't honestly believe that in this day and age, where anyone with a pulse signs on for a reality show (Mario Lopez?!? Aubrey O'Day?!?), Bristol and Levi wouldn't be the ideal stars of a series. As depressing as that may be.

Let's turn this question over to the readers: Who would you prefer to watch?

Scandal seems to find David Boreanaz like Rachel Uchitel finds married celebrities. This story involves an unnamed woman, however - one suing the actor.

An actress is suing the married actor for sexual harassment. The lawsuit will be filed Thursday in downtown Los Angeles by famed attorney Gloria Allred.

Boreanaz, who plays Special Agent Seeley Booth on Fox's Bones, recently admitted an affair with an unnamed woman, alleging he was being extorted.

That also-unknown mistress was also represented by Allred.

It is not clear if this is the same woman currently filing the sexual harassment suit, or if she's a different accuser, but we should find that out shortly.

BONES TO PICK: Women apparently have some with David.

The harassment suit is the latest in a series of bizarrely scandalous events ... well, they're bizarre in large part because they involve David Boreanaz.

Most famously, tabloids claimed last year that Boreanaz carried on an affair with Rachel Uchitel, now famous as Tiger Woods' Ambien-loving mistress.

Despite his infidelity, the actor admitted his failings and has said that he and wife Jaime Bergman are still committed to resolving their marital issues.

"Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities," he told People magazine in May. "We're working on repairing what has been damaged so badly."

Bones creator Hart Hanson relayed a message from him to the show's fans, thanking them for support and expressing "sincere pain" from the ordeal.

UPDATE: The woman is identified only as Kristin, an extra on the show. She says David sent her "sexually inappropriate text messages" last August.

According to Women's Health, Brooklyn Decker has the best bikini body on the planet. We challenge any warm-blooded male to disagree with this fact.

Similarly, that publication's partner magazine has released a poll with an obvious result: Kellan Lutz possesses the hottest beach body of any man in 2010.

The Twilight Saga star showed off his chiseled muscles and ridiculous abs in a recent Calven Klein underwear campaign. His body seems almost computer-generated, doesn't it?

Rounding out the top five in this poll were Mario Lopez, Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner and Matthew McConaughey.

Drool over these studs, as well as a few more in the top 10 below. Then, vote for the sexiest...

Who has the best beach body?

Mel Gibson is under fire and facing allegations of domestic violence, but did Oksana Grigorieva try to blackmail the star regarding their now-infamous phone tapes?

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is now investigating that.

Oksana G. Pic

"Extortion allegations have been brought to our attention and we are certainly going to be looking at that," Steve Whitmore of the sheriff's department confirmed.

Tuesday, Gibson's attorney argued to police that her team had solid proof that Oksana Grigorieva not only tried to extort the actor, but lied to the authorities.

Locked in a custody battle over eight-month-old daughter Lucia, Mel and Oksana, who broke up earlier this year, have traded serious allegations for weeks now.

The most significant? That he hit Oksana and Lucia, then attacked her son.

Both Mel and Oksana are now under investigation.

Photos purported to be of a battered Oksana and Lucia have surfaced online, and in the newest Mel Gibson tape, he allegedly acknowledges the Jan. 6 attack.

A rep for the dentist who examined Oksana the day after the incident says she sustained injuries from blows to the head. We'll see what the police conclude.

Mel has denied any physical attack on his ex, however, and his camp has gone on record claiming she's shaking him down - and may have altered the tapes.

Grigorieva's attorney, Stephen Jaffe denied those allegations, saying his client "has repeatedly stated there is no credible evidence whatsoever of extortion."

The feuding parties apparently agreed to a $15 million deal involving custody and the tapes in May, but for reasons unknown, Oksana left it on the table.

Kate Major, Lindsay Lohan's ex-assistant and Michael Lohan's soon-to-be ex-fiancee, says he threatened to kill her, called her a "c**t" and kicked her in the face.

Never a sign of a stable, long-term relationship.

According to the police report and formal complaint she filed against the deadbeat dad she somehow agreed to marry, Michael Lohan assaulted her - and worse:

"My fiance Michael Lohan came home while I was sleeping in a sofa chair. He woke me up, yelling, 'Why didn't you pick up your cell phone, you stupid c**t.'"

"He then turned over the chair while I was still in it, tossing me to the floor. I crawled to the other side of the room to get away from him. He walked over to me, took his shoe off and kicked me in the face while I was still on the ground."

Michael Lohan Mug Shot

"He stood over me and said, 'I'm going to go back to jail cause of you, cause I will kill you.' He said all of this to me cause he is afraid I'm going to leave him."

"I am very afraid of him."

So are we. He and Mel Gibson should get together and swap ideas.

Kate Major says she hit her head on the wall, then the floor as she fell. According to the police report, officials observed "Minor swelling observed on [her] lip."

Michael says there was an argument but denied touching Kate. Apparently police don't buy it, since Kate now has "Temporary Order of Protection" against him.

The Order prohibits the hothead loser from communicating with Major in any way. He's also prohibited from having a "third party" contact or threaten her.

In the Order, signed by a judge at the Southampton Justice Court, he cannot engage in "any acts or threats of physical violence." We'll see if he can resist.

UPDATE: Michael has been charged with second degree harassment for the incident. He will be formally arraigned in Southampton, N.Y., court August 18.
