Up until now, Elisabetta Canalis has been known as the gorgeous woman on the arm of George Clooney for the past year.

But the Italian beauty suddenly finds herself in the news for other, far more sordid reasons: a fellow model (turned prostitute) claims she saw Canalis snort a couple lines of cocaine at a Milan nightclub in 2007.

Referring to a 2007 incident at The Club, an establishment under investigation for allowing drugs and sex, Karima Menad told prosecutors two years ago: "I remember taking cocaine with Elisabetta Canalis and two others."

This admission is part of documents obtained this week by Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Canalis started dating Clooney last July, but Menad was referring to a night in December 2007 in her testimony, adding:

"We had been at a party of some famous, rich celebrity whose name I cannot remember. I don't remember who brought the drugs but we all took it."

The Club was shut down on July 26 amidst reports that women were brought in to entertain customers.

"Their job was to encourage these customers to drink alcohol as to increase the table's bill, followed up by sex off premises," said prosecutor Frank Di Maio. "They were often given cocaine for free by those who want to sit at a table of famous people... they want the visibility that comes from being seated at a central table, and to be seen with models, or celebrities from fashion, entertainment and sport."

Canalis is yet to comment on her alleged role in this scandal.

Kroy Biermann is a 24-year old defense end for the Atlanta Falcons with seven sacks over his first two seasons.

Not shabby, but not impressive enough to get the young NFL player noticed across the Internet.

That could at least explain why Biermann has taken the arm of 32-year old Kim Zolciak. According to In Touch Weekly, The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member has been dating the professional baller for about two months.

A source says the pair attended the wedding of Zolciak's co-star, Cynthia Bailey, on Saturday, and were spotted “laughing, kissing and have a great time together.”

Guess this means Kroy would answer this pressing question in the affirmative.

Over the past year or so, Zolciak has been linked with some dude known as Big Poppa and some female DJ named Tracy Young. Not exactly tough company for Kroy Biermann to live up to.

Believing that the shackles of justice are simply too tight for spoiled celebrities who drive drunk, then repeatedly violate their probation, some Lindsay Lohan fans who apparently lack hobbies and/or jobs staged a rally in NYC.

A Free Lindsay Rally.

Supporting the troubled star for reasons unknown, fans rallied at Beach Bum Tanning in New York, a salon once used by Lindsay, sister Ali and mom Dina.

Protesters railed against the "harsh treatment Lindsay is receiving," noting that Lohan was given twice the time Paris Hilton was for a similar violation.

They've got a point there, technically ... but it's not exactly a grave injustice, and even more ridiculously, Lindsay is getting out like this weekend.

Free Lindsay?

Kanye West finally joined Twitter yesterday.

Upon hearing this, we had two thoughts:

  1. How was Kanye not on Twitter already?
  2. It's only a matter of time until Taylor Swift's account gets hijacked and Kanye's is proclaimed the greatest Twitter account of all time! OF ALL TIME!

Just kidding. Kanye's entry into the Twitter-verse began with this simple, boring declaration: "Up early in the morning taking meetings in Silicone Valley."

But then: "Lol I spelled Silicon wrong ( I guess I was still thinking about the other type of silicone ITS A PROCESS!! : )," Yup, he's definitely arrived.

New Twitterer

We expect at least 120 Tweets a day, Kanye.

The big surprise to those of us who follow West is that his Tweets are not in CAPS LOCK, the rapper's preferred method of communication on his blog.

Instead, he seems to prefer no capitalization or punctuation at all. Makes it a bit tough to read, but we'll take it over all caps. Much less threatening.

Kanye West may have joined Twitter later than many stars, but he can take comfort in the fact that his arrival was highly celebrated and anticipated:

He's already cracked 200,000 followers, and "predictedkanyetweets" - in which fans predicted future Kanye-isms - was a Trending Topic yesterday.

No Tweets so far about him shagging Shay, sadly.

NOTE: Follow THG on Twitter!

Jersey Shore's second season premieres tonight on MTV.

You will not be seeing Deena Nicole on it.

Still with Angelina Pivarnick out for Season 3 (she was apparently back for Season 2 after being out for Season 1), there’s room in the Seaside Heights enclave for a hot new guidette, and they've apparently found one in Snooki's friend.

Deena Nicole, real name Deena Nicole Cortese, is reportedly filming the reality show’s third season in N.J. Here's the brief rundown on her ...

Deena Nicole Pic

Watch out, Jersey Shore. Deena Nicole has arrived.

Real Jersey girl. Unlike The Situation, Snooki, Ronnie, Vinny and Pauly D, Cortese is the real deal. She hails from New Egypt, N.J., in Ocean County. Wonder what New Jersey's Governor, who hates the show, thinks about that.

Snooki's pal. Cortese goes way back with Jersey Shore leading lady Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. The pickle-loving reality star even reportedly helped Cortese get cast on the show. Cute.

Single status. Before deleting her Myspace page, Cortese posted that she was a single lady. But - sorry guys - one that's currently "not looking for anything."

Forget GTL, it's BBB. “All I need is beats, my broads, and booze,” she posted on Facebook before she began filming. NOTE: Become a fan of THG on Facebook!

Kate Major has lawyered up against her ex-fiance Michael Lohan, and we can't say we blame her, given that the dude leaked topless pics of her online.

In a cease and desist letter to Lohan, her attorney writes:

Kate Major Up Close

"We have become aware that you are illegally selling or offering for sale one or more nude photographs of Ms. Major to kikster LLC and other websites."

Yep, he's hawking pics of Kate Major nude. This is after he allegedly attacked her and they broke off their engagement. He's one classy guy, that M-Lo.

Michael Lohan and then-fiancee Kate Major.

The letter states that the photos were taken without the knowledge of Kate, Lindsay's former assistant, and she did not consent to them going public.

Kate and her attorney are demanding that Michael stop pitching the pics. A similar letter was sent to Kikster demanding that it take down the photos.

In his defense, Michael has denied selling the photos of Major and insists they were stolen. He has zero credibility, however, and is most likely lying.

Just going by the odds.

Guess we know where Lindsay Lohan gets her bad excuses from. She's responsible for her own mess, but having the worst dad on Earth can't help.

Better watch your back, Kim Jong Il. Angelina Jolie will totally kick your ass. Oh, and your huge '80s sunglasses look effing ridiculous, BTW. Just saying.

Jolie was in Seoul, South Korea, today to promote her latest action thriller, Salt, which opens with a scene that takes place in a North Korean prison.

Mental Hospital Style

That's not her only connection with the Korean Peninsula, of course. The actress and humanitarian is deeply worried about the people of North Korea.

The persecution defectors face when repatriated to the rogue state appalled Jolie, a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees.

Seoul-based officials from the U.N. refugee agency brought the star up to date on the current state of affairs there, and she was naturally appalled.

GOODWILL AMBASSADOR: Angelina Jolie is Salt. And awesome.

“They spoke a lot about the concerns about people being persecuted when they are sent back,” she said. “I’m very concerned about the people.”

Tens of thousands of people from impoverished North Korea have migrated to neighboring China in recent years, activists say, but it's very risky.

Many are sent back due to an agreement between North Korea and China. Some 19,000 have made it to South Korea, where they are protected.

“I learned today about them gaining citizenship and crossing into South Korea,” Angelina Jolie, who was also promoting her movie, told reporters.

“The UNHCR practices quiet diplomacy in which they do more than they talk about.”

As always, kudos to Angelina for using her high-profile status to bring attention to issues and people who truly need it. She sets a great example.

As much as it pains us, we must give Kendall Jenner some credit.

The 14-year old half-sister of Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian responded this week to the controversy surrounding her recent photo shoot. Instead of getting on some high horse and telling the world to focus on more important issues (we're looking at you, Miley Cyrus), Kendall came across as mature and understanding of the situation.

"I am excited to be working as a model, doing what I love to do," she told People. "My entire family was very supportive, though my dad was a bit concerned at first, he knows that I am responsible enough that I wouldn’t do anything I wasn’t ready to do, or didn’t want to do.”

In a String Bikini

Kendall continued:

“Going into this shoot, it was never my intention to be provocative or too racy. It was a beach shoot, and I was wearing beachwear. I am happy with my age, and am not trying to rush into anything too soon. I look forward to all the milestones my teens have to offer - Sweet 16, turning 18, and so on.”

We still believe Jenner should wait a few years before donning so few items of clothing in a nationally-published shoot.

But at least she recognizes the reasons behind the scandal and acknowledges that she's barely even a teenager. Gotta give her - or the publicist behind this statement, really - props for handling the situation in such a straightforward manner.

The late Brittany Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack, was shrouded in mystery and suspicion from the moment they wed in 2007 until his own death this year.

Now new allegations are flying about her controversial spouse, whose business manager, Jeffrey Morgenroth, says he liquidated a majority of her accounts.

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

"There were huge amounts in pension and bank accounts, and all of that's gone," he says. "There was money being withdrawn by Simon, hundreds of thousands."

Six months after the 32-year-old star's death in December from pneumonia, anemia and drug intoxication, Monjack had withdrawn 80 percent of her wealth.

His own death from anemia and pneumonia in May ended this sad saga on a tragic note, likely relegating any ulterior motives he had to speculation alone.

Where is the money? What was he doing with it? One person it matters deeply to is Brittany's mom Sharon, 57, who faces financial uncertainty as a result.

Troubled follows Simon Monjack, even in death.

After Monjack died, Jeannette Bycott, an assistant to Morgenroth, says Monjack's mom Linda ordered Sharon Murphy to leave the couple's Hollywood Hills house.

Both Murphys and Monjack lived in the house, and Brittany's mother spoke fondly of Simon, at least in public, in the wake of Brittany's tragic passing.

"Linda basically started acting like everything belongs to her," says Bycott. "Before Sharon could say anything, Linda stated the house was now hers."

Linda Monjack, also grieving the loss of her child, denies any wrongdoing by Simon. "If there is money missing I have no idea where it is," she said.

"He didn't get much, maybe a few hundred dollars, and he paid off debts with it. He spent most of his time crying his eyes out most of the time."

"He was in a terrible state."

The Bachelorette season finale is just days away, and viewers are going nuts trying to figure out if Ali Fedotowsky picks Chris Lambton or Roberto Martinez.

Or, if you're the type to believe The Bachelorette spoilers we've teased for weeks, she rejects both, and is single to this day. What does she have to say?

“I was trying to be smart and fall in love with my heart, but use my head too,” she told People in its new cover story of starring on The Bachelorette.

“Sometimes the right thing is the hardest thing to do, and it’s definitely hard to hurt somebody. No matter what happens in the end, I hurt somebody.”

Hmm. There's that, and there's Us Weekly, which is really going out of its way to convince us she's engaged, despite offering absolutely no evidence.

Which is it - and if she is engaged, to whom? Is it true what other sources say, that Roberto proposes? If he does, are they still together now?

  • Rule Breaker
  • Secrets of the Proposal!

DIFFERENT STORIES: Ali's engaged? Some beg to differ.

It's worth noting that mere days before the final rose ceremony, no clips of her standing with either guy, or of the guy(s) walking toward her has been shown.

Was there no final rose ceremony? Was it filmed in secret to prevent the outcome from being leaked? Is ABC just bad at promoting its cash cow reality show?

Whatever the case, it's definitely odd, since Chris Lambton and Roberto Martinez are both so popular. Even fans who prefer one or the other really like both.

Host-pimp Chris Harrison says the finale is "surprising" and "unlike anything in the history of the show." "It's true from the last chance dates," he told E!

"And from those on into 'proposal day,' at the end. Everything is different than what our fans have seen in years past. People will be surprised. Whether it's good or not, Ali's happy with it and she's sticking by it. It'll be interesting."

Hmm. After seeing her recently, Chris adds:

"She looked healthier, she looked happy. She had a smile on her face and a bounce in her step again. The season took a lot out of her. It was a rough road, but she's good. She's very happy and content with what she did."

What the heck did she do - and who should she pick? Leave a comment with theories, and vote in our ongoing Chris vs. Roberto poll below ...
