The Michael Jackson concert movie, This Is It, originally billed as a two-week-only event, will now be staying in theaters through Thanksgiving weekend.

This Is It led the box-office competition with an estimated $21.3 million in the U.S. Friday-Sunday, upping its five-day, worldwide haul to $101 million.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

The film still couldn't dominate Miley Cyrus or Paranormal Activity, but what can you expect. It is rehearsal footage, not even a real movie. Just saying.

Despite its success, This Is It barely came within $10 million of matching Cyrus' Hannah Montana concert movie's opening weekend record ($31.1 million).

Best of Both Worlds, which opened on Friday, also made more money in five days than This Is It (which opened Wednesday) $37.3 million to $32.5 million.

THAT'S NOT IT: Even in death, Michael Jackson remains an enormous draw.

Internationally was another story, though, as Michael Jackson has always been bigger overseas than in the United States, where he isn't exactly small time.

Two-thirds of This Is It's mammoth gross came from the rest of the world, led by the Jackson-friendly environs of Japan, the United Kingdom and Germany.

With four more weeks to go, there's no telling what it will make when all is said and done. But clearly, Jackson's executors have created a movie monster.

According to Sony, the film's $101 million is already a new worldwide record for a concert movie ... beating out none other than Best of Both Worlds, natch.

Paranormal Activity (second with $16.5 million), meanwhile, was the weekend's top-grossing non-Michael Jackson movie, and has now grossed $84.8 million.

With the naked eye, it appears as though Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian dressed as Batman and Catwoman for Halloween.

But anyone familiar with them can safely assume they'd never don such lame costumes.

Because those comic book characters have been done so many times (and because Odom scarcely made an effort to be the Caped Crusader), it's clear that Lamar and Khloe arrived at a party as something else entirely, something entirely opposite from what they actually are:

A couple that doesn't want attention.

You've gotta hand it to Kardodom for the effort. The pair almost seems to be shunning the spotlight with such a weak effort, but we know better.

Below, contrast Odom and Kardashian with another dressed-up couple: Melissa Rycroft and Tye Strickland.

Lame Costumes

Which couple looked cuter?

It might not get any more adorable than this.

Dropping their celebrity status and picking up their children, Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani acted like any other mothers in America on Saturday night, dressing up and taking their kids trick-or-treating.

Stefani is seen below with husband Gavin Rossdale and children Zuma and Kingston; Aguilera, meanwhile, is matching son Max with her skeleton costume.

We don't wish to pit such cute, caring moms against one another; but, as a nationally-read celebrity gossip blog, we're contractually obligated to do so...

  • Christina and Son
  • Gwen and the Family

Who looked cuter on Halloween?

With her first-ever concert tour through Australia starting in just a couple of days, pop star Britney Spears is doing her best to live a normal life while she can.

Well, whatever her equivalent of a normal life is. This is a woman who cleans up her image at the same time she releases her "3" music video, remember.

Friday night, Britney took her boys Sean Preston Federline, 4, and Jayden James Federline, 3, out for a family dinner in Calabasas, Calif. Here's mommy ...

Britney, Jayden

Britney Spears' son Jayden is so big! Kids. They grow up so fast.

It's been really nice for Britney to be spending some low-key time in L.A. recently. The kids have really gotten to know their new dad-in-waiting Jason Trawick.

Tila Tequila has a large pair of breasts and... not much else to offer society.

Therefore, it's nice to see the bisexual celebrity at least putting her one asset to good use.

Lip Peck

She's taking part on an online auction sponsored by the Keep A Breast Foundation, which donates all money received for painted, plaster breast casts to cancer research, detection and prevention.

So far, the highest bid for a copy of Tila's boobs is $44,500. The auction will be open through November 6.

“I am so excited to be able to work with Keep A Breast Foundation!” Tila wrote on her blog. “It’s a great charity... and now my boobies are at $44,500.00!!. Incredible!!! I’m gonna cry of joy!"

Tequila has promised to call - and kiss! - the winner of her auction. She'll also donate $10,000 for people to Tweet about the Keep A Breast Foundation and the bidding.

We never thought we'd say this, but: great job Tila Tequila! Way to put your breasts to work in a way that doesn't involve random fondling and exposure.

Marfa, Texas, meet Santa Barbara, California.

These two locales have had it with Evi and Randy Quaid. The West Texas city of 2,100, once found its residents the Quaids eccentric. Now it just wants 'em out.

The latest incident occurred Friday when a Marfa resident discovered that his satellite dish had been ripped off his building, which had also been spray painted.

"He called the Sheriff and reported that the damage had been done by Evi Quaid," a Marfa source said. "The man is their neighbor and they used to get along."

"Evi Quaid kept accusing him of his satellite dish infringing on her property. He didn't see her rip it down but it is his belief she did and that's what he reported."

Evi and Randy Quaid

Evi Quaid and husband Randy: Possibly need of psychiatrists.

Two deputies responded to the call and went to a neighboring building, owned by the Quaids. No one was home at the time but an investigation continues.

The Quaids live above commercial space in their building in downtown Marfa. Evi is turning the ground floor into a museum honoring her husband. Really.

Evi and Randy are leaving a trail of bizarre antics in their wake. Photos of Evi Quaid nude were even sent to a local newspaper editor! Again, yes, really.

Randy and Evi are accused of defrauding a California inn of $10,000 and may face extradition. When accosted by police in Marfa, Evi flipped the f%*k out.

Two young celebrities. Two Halloween costumes. One exciting face-off!

Both Audrina Patridge and AnnaLynne McCord celebrated on Saturday night, with the former making like a sexy genie and the latter a cleavage-laden superhero.

Audrina Patridge: Bikini Style

As Christina Augilera first said, it's safe to assume that if you rubbed Patridge the right way (i.e. gave her attention), she'd do anything you wanted her to.

But does she look better in her outfit than the rising 90210 star? That's up to readers to determine.

Who looked more beautiful on Halloween?

She wasn't due for another few weeks, but reports say Mel Gibson’s girlfriend/fiance Oksana Grigorieva is said to have given birth to their baby - a girl.

Oksana Grigorieva gave birth Friday, a bit early but everything went well and both mom and daughter are doing just fine, according to Radar Online.

The website reports that mom and the baby are already home.

Mel’s affair with Oksana was uncovered earlier this year by celebrity gossip media after a series of photos of the cozy couple in Costa Rica surfaced.

This while Mel’s marriage was apparently dunzo.

OCTOMEL: Mel Gibson now has eight kids, and one with Oksana Grigorieva!

Mel’s wife Robyn filed for divorce in April, 2009, shortly after the photos were public and Mel admitted he was romantically involved with Oksana Grigorieva.

Mel and Robyn were married 29 years; their marital assets are estimated at around $900 million. Currently, Mel says he has no plans to wed his baby mama.

Mel has six sons and one daughter with Robyn.

Oksana, a Russian singer and lingerie model, has a 12-year-old son with James Bond star Timothy Dalton. She is an accomplished musician and composer.

She released her album Beautiful Heartache in July.

The director has already promised buckets full of tears.

Now, one of the stars of New Moon tells potential viewers to prepare for heartbreak and sadness. While celebrating Halloween at an event in Las Vegas, Ashley Greene described the plot as:

"Edward [Robert Pattinson] kind of breaks Bella's heart, so you definitely see Jacob [Taylor Lautner] kind of swoop in to rescue her. You get to see their chemistry and dynamic. It kind of keeps you on the edge of your seat a little bit more than the first one."

As for comparisons between Twilight and New Moon, Greene added:

"The first one is very much a love story, and this one is kind of more about heartbreak and healing, and you got the wolves come in and there's that threat, that danger. I actually saw the movie about two months ago, and it's really good."

We're sure it is. Below, we've posted an iconic scene from the novel. Watch Bella celebrate her birthday with the Cullens... until a paper cut creates a major family rift:

Last week, Lauren Conrad attended the Avon Hope Honors Benefit on behalf of the m.powerment campaign, her philanthropic initiative with mark cosmetics.

The former star of The Hills opted for a retro look, reminiscent of Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake, showing off a polished complexion and a velvety finish.

We like the subtle rosy glow, and the fact that unlike so many stars of today, who opt for the same, revealing appearance, LC keeps it both classy and sexy.

It seems like that would be a contradiction in terms, but we think she pulls it off.

You? Take a look at Lauren at her event last week and vote in our survey below:

What do you think of LC's retro look?
