This is a first: The View is facing controversy, and it's NOT over something Elisabeth Hasselbeck said.

In fact, that conservative commentator - whose most recent example of opinionated nonsense involved a shot at Erin Andrews - has nothing to do with why GLADD is taking aim at this ABC talk show.

Instead, the organization has its sights set on Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley, the June 22 guest host. On that date, the pair talked about the influx of HIV among African-Americans and blamed it on gay black men that were in the closet, aka "on the down low."

"When you look at the prevalence of HIV in the African American community, it's primarily young women who are getting it from men who are on the down low," Hughley said.

Added Shepherd, offering no data to back up her assertion: "It's so big in the black community with women because they're having sex with men who have been having sex with men."

In response, GLADD has taken out a full-page ad in Variety that reads:

"The Centers for Disease Control has publicly disproven this myth. And since June 22, thousands of people have written to ABC, asking that The View provide correct information to viewers. Unfortunately, those requests have been greeted with silence from both ABC and The View."

Panelists on the show are known for expressing their opinions and have the right to speak their minds, of course. But when making grand claims such as the one above, it would nice if they relied on facts to support their statements.

DeAnna Pappas, the former star of The Bachelorette, is not only dating Stephen Stagliano, the brother of a former contestant on the show, they are engaged.

Supposedly. And planning to wed. Like soon.

DeAnna and Stephen, whose brother Michael pined for Jillian Harris on her season of The Bachelorette, were fixed up by his twin and his girlfriend, Holly Durst.

Holly was let go by Matt Grant when she was a contestant on The Bachelor, and also dated Jesse Csincsak, who got engaged to DeAnna on her season finale.

We know, it's really confusing.

The Bachelorette castoff Michael Stagliano, left, set his brother up with DeAnna Pappas. She was previously engaged to Jesse Csincsak, but that didn't last long.

As for DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano's wedding, it's supposedly imminent, although specifics aren't exactly available, courtesy of anonymous sources.

Take it with a grain of salt is all we're saying.

Hopefully, hosting her Lifetime series Get Married, where she offers wedding advice and tips to brides-to-be, will help prepare DeAnna for her own big day.

Yes, DeAnna Pappas hosts a show about weddings, despite two failed attempts at marriage proposals on national TV ... is this a great country or what?!

The lovely D is currently back home in Georgia where plans for the quickie wedding "is all they're talking about." Congratulations if this is in any way true!

When the union went on strike, did Tommy give up?

When tips at the diner were sparse, did Gina throw in her apron?

No and no. Therefore, legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi - inspired by the characters he created for the iconic single "Livin on a Prayer" - continued with his concert in New Jersey over the weekend, despite a serious leg injury sustained during the set.

Said a spokesperson afterward: "Jon Bon Jovi sustained a torn calf muscle. [He] made light of the injury and went on to close the show... The band ended the night together, thanking the capacity hometown crowd, and assisting Jon off the stage."

The development won't stop Bon Jovi from playing every stop of its tour this summer. Watch the injured lead singer in action below:

For THG staff member Free Britney, it's already been quite a year.

He welcomed his first child into the world in February, a baby boy who rivals Mason Dash and Hank Baskett IV for Cutest Newborn of 2010, but that hasn't stopped him from pumping out content at a record rate.

Working on little sleep and in between diaper changes, FB has averaged 10 posts/day over the last week, all without complaint, all for the enjoyment of our loyal readers. He's also still working on his original mission: to free Britney Spears from the conservatorship under which she suffers.

It's a noble cause.

Ohh, Baby, Baby

It's okay, Brit. It's not too late to get your biggest supporter a gift.

As he turns 31 today, there's something every user out there can do for this dedicated writer's birthday: follow THG on Twitter!

Nothing would mean more to him.

We actually have something positive to say about this week's episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami: it was baby talk free!

As for what else went down on the most scripted show on television? We forced an intern to watch and to file the following report...

Kourtney Kardashian Kover

On this week’s installment, Kourtney is obsessive about getting her body back into pre-baby shape. Also, Khloe is back in Miami from LA.

Kourtney goes overboard in her mission. She has a shoot for Life & Style, who we all know has an exclusive deal with the Kardashians.  She tells her stylist that she doesn’t want to be photoshopped because then it’s not realistic for other pregnant women to see. 

Besides the fact that everything is photoshopped these days, it’s also unrealistic to for the average mom to be very rich with access to nannies, free clothes, trainers, etc.

We all know what happens next. 

After all, when you are depriving yourself of food and overindulging in exercise you will lose your cool and possibly consciousness.  Kourtney snaps at Scott and Khloe and then ends up fainting. She needs to be taken away in an ambulance to get hydrated. 

By the way, how Patrick Bateman did Scott look in his outfit during that fight scene?  Moreover, when Kourtney had the IV pulled out, she claims she “can’t look at that stuff.”  I didn’t know Kourtney had any sort of gross out factor; after all she did pull her own baby out of her vagina on cable TV.

Meanwhile Khloe vowed that upon her return to Miami she would no longer be “whining Whitney” and would throw herself into being more helpful to Kourtney and Dash.  She takes over the shop, babysits Mason, and is Kourtney’s biggest cheerleader.

When veteran comedian Joan Rivers took to Twitter to go off on Lindsay Lohan, the star's ex-girlfriend, Samantha Ronson, came to her defense.

The 77-year-old had joked: "Lindsay Lohan said she wouldn't mind being under oath because she thought Oath was a Norwegian ski instructor."

"Lindsay Lohan is so dumb. Her idea of being sworn in is cursing at the judge. I was reading about the Lindsay Lohan diet ... all liquid. 80 Proof."

Those were pretty good. But SamRo was not pleased.

"Hey Joan Rivers you have collagen older than Lindsay, pick on someone your own age, oh wait, I guess people that old can't hear," she Tweeted.

Lindsay Lohan, who dated Sam for over a year, thanked her ex for defending her, tweeting: '@samantharonson thank you ;) I love yams x'.

  • Joan Rivers Pic
  • Sad Lindsay

The alleged actress was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail by a judge in Beverly Hills for violating her probation and must surrender July 20.

Since the judge laid the smack down last week, Lindsay has been seen out and about with mom Dina, sister Ali and "close friend" Eilat Anschel.

Lohan appeared relatively upbeat, saying "thank you" when a passer-by gave her some words of encouragement, but Dina admits she's scared.

Sources say she plans to appeal the sentence, but given her track record with probation and the fact that she's totally guilty, that's a stretch.

It looks like the whiner is headed to jail for at least part of the 90-day term, and shouldn't expect a lot of sympathy from Rivers, who writes:

"Lindsay Lohan had "F**k You" painted on her nails. What people don't know is that the judge had 'Eat me you party skank' painted on hers."

He may have had an affair with her (and many, many others), but no love child resulted from that fornication. Thus, Tiger Woods wants Devon James' paternity claim axed.

Through his lawyers, Tiger has fired back against one of his porn star mistresses and her paternity claims, asking the court to throw the case out for one simple reason:

Tiger is not the father.

Devon James filed papers back in June alleging that the golfer was the father of her nine-year-old son ... despite DNA tests proving that the daddy was someone else.

Attorneys for Woods have now filed legal documents declaring as fact Tiger did not father James' son and, therefore, the paternity case should be history.

Better luck next time, Dev.

Tiger

DISMISSED: Much as a Tiger Woods love child wouldn't surprise us at this point, a low-rent porn star mistress making up such a claim to cash in surprises us less.

Stop the presses: Jesse Jackson has come to the defense of LeBron James.

Mind you, no one asked him to, no one cares what he says, and some of his word choice was predictably ridiculous - but he defended the NBA star, alright!

Naturally, he compared bitter Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, whose open letter to fans tore into James after he bolted the city, to a "slave master."

In a harshly-worded statement, the civil rights leader took Gilbert to task for his comments regarding LeBron's decision last week to sign with the Miami Heat.

Jackson says, "He speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality."

"He sees LeBron as a runaway slave."

Jesse goes on, "LeBron is not a child, nor is he bound to play on Gilbert’s plantation and be demeaned. He has been a model citizen and has inspired the children of Akron, Cleveland, the State of Ohio and the United States."

Okay, look.

No one is arguing James was bound to play for Cleveland and no one else, but it's crystal clear why no sports fan outside South Florida likes him right now.

The egotistical superstar didn't simply abandon his hometown, he strung it along, then delivered the news in an absurd, staged primetime special on ESPN.

Then he was introduced as a member of the Heat in a similarly bombastic, over-the-top event in Miami the next night, cementing his me-first villain status.

What a d!ck move.

Dan Gilbert may be glossing over his own role in James' departure, and may even be unnecessarily bitter, but his berating of LeBron was in many ways justified - and certainly didn't evoke any hint of "slave owner mentality." Get real, Jesse.

Move over, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Out of the way, Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez. Make some room, Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher.

There was yet another celebrity wedding this weekend.

Tamera Mowry, Adam Housley

Martin Lawrence and Shamicka Gibbs, his longtime girlfriend, were married in an intimate wedding on Saturday at the actor's home in Beverly Hills.

Lawrence, 45, and Gibbs, 35, exchanged Christian vows in the back yard in front of 120 guests, including Eddie Murphy and Denzel Washington.

Shamicka Gibbs is now Mrs. Martin Lawrence!

The couple has been together more than a decade.

Their daughters Amara, 9, and Iyana, 7, and Lawrence's older daughter Jasmine, 14, from a previous marriage, were all flower girls at the wedding.

After the ceremony, they joined their guests for a reception. "They wanted an intimate celebration," says a source. "This wedding was all about family."

Martin Lawrence was last seen on the big screen in this year's comedy Death at a Funeral. He recently wrapped Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.

Congrats to the couple!

Miley Cyrus may be a colossal disappointment for a variety of reasons, but at least she doesn't curse, smoke or look like a raccoon at all times.

The same can't be said for Gossip Girl cast member Taylor Momsen.

Speaking to FHM UK this week, the 16-year old lashed out at critics that compare her to Miley, making it very clear that she doesn't see any similarities between the pair.

"I'm not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus," Momsen said. "I don't care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we'll go along for the ride."

  • Taylor M.
  • Miles in Concert

Momsen and Cyrus may both act and sing, but that's pretty much where the comparisons end. The former fronts rock band The Pretty Reckless, while the latter is nothing more than a Britney Spears wannabe at this point.

Still, Taylor feels a need to distance herself from Miley, adding: "I think the Disney bubblegum shit that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression."

It's unclear what that actually means, but Gossip Girl fans have made their opinion of Momsen and her character well-known: Jenny Humphrey has been written out of most of next season on the show.

Good riddance.
