Kristin Cavallari looks damn good in a bikini.

The same can't be said for how she looks on TV screens, however, according to The Hills fan base, which is dwindling with each passing episode.

Vegas VIP KC

MTV dredged up Kristin Cavallari, former Laguna Beach bad girl, in hopes that she could inject new life into its struggling cash cow, The Hills.

So far, the new season can be summed up in two words: Epic. Fail.

Somewhere in West Hollywood, Lauren Conrad is probably ROTFL.

Ratings for The Hills are down by a third this season, i.e. as soon as LC called it a reality TV career and the network inexplicably decided that the "reality" show could go on just as successfully if they inserted Kristin as the lead character.

Is Kristin Cavallari solely to blame for the viewership decline?

While Kristin's "return" has been disappointing for myriad reasons, Lauren leaving is probably just as big a factor behind the show's declining viewership.

Even though the show was at times contrived and she could be a bit exasperating, LC was always a real person, and one peeps generally liked watching.

Normal Lauren and insane, but entertaining Speidi struck a nice balance. Kristin Cavallari and Justin freaking Bobby as the focal point? Not so much.

A 33 percent dropoff is fairly significant, and will be hard to reverse. At this rate, you have to think the current season of The Hills will be its last.

Police have ID'd Rachel Lee as the "mastermind" (a bit of a misnomer, since she's busted) of the roving gang of hooligans known as Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch.

Lee was arrested in Las Vegas Thursday, suspected of organizing a plan to steal cash, jewelry, clothing, luggage, purses and other items from several celebrities.

Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson are on her hit list. Courtney Ames, Diana Tamayo, and Nicholas Prugo are among her accomplices.

When Lee was busted, police impounded a variety of items from her father's home: laptops, photographs of a partially nude woman, photographs of Lee's friends, two hundred $100 bills, a Korean passport and a vial of marijuana.

Sources also say police found a series of items that may have been taken from various celebrities, such as a hat linked to Lindsay Lohan, jeans linked to Rachel Bilson and - here's a shocker - photos of Paris Hilton nude. LOL.

Appropriately for an accused celebrity burglar, Lee told the arresting officers she discovered she was a "person of interest" in the case only after "watching TMZ."

The Burglar Bunch, if they are indeed responsible, ransacked Audrina Patridge and Lindsay Lohan's pads this summer, and also hit Orlando Bloom in early fall.

Lee has denied being involved in any of the burglaries, but we'll see if any of her cronies roll on her. She's currently behind bars in a Clark County, Nev., jail.

The ring leader was among four arrests made earlier today in connection with the high-profile burglaries in Hollywood. All have reeked of inside jobs.

In true douchebag fashion, Jon Gosselin has made sure his lawyer makes a huge, public deal out of him returning $180,000 he was not supposed to withdraw and would have surely kept had a judge not threaten to hold him in contempt.

No one at The Hollywood Gossip has ever been arrested for dealing heroin either, Jon, but you don't see our legal team issuing press releases bragging about it.

Jon's lawyer, Mark Heller, says his client is now in "complete compliance" with a court order that he return $180,000 he stole from a joint account with wife Kate.

The attorney says Kate's the one being shady and hiding funds.

"Unless something happens today [with Kate] she will be going through contempt proceedings Monday," Heller told People, pressing the issue with Jon's ex.

Mark Momjian, Kate's attorney, could not be reached for comment. Kate had been ordered to account for $55,000 she withdrew for household expenses.

You know you're a douchebag if you seek credit for things you're supposed to do anyway. And have really bad hair plugs and delusions about your celebrity status.

Jon accused her of harboring much more than that from book royalties. Kate charged that Jon's withdrawal left her unable to feed her kids or pay bills.

Both sides filed contempt motions against each other for allegedly violating a divorce arbitrator's guidelines for how their joint money should be spent.

These people really suck.

Meanwhile, we knew Jon thinks highly of himself - so delusionally that he thinks his time is worth $10,000 an hour - but we weren't aware it was this bad.

The moron is looking for new avenues to keep his bad hair plugs on the news after TLC renamed his show Kate Plus 8, then pulled the plug on it altogether.

He's wants a spot on celeb editions of The Amazing Race or Survivor. We're for it if CBS crews "accidentally" abandon him somewhere in the South Pacific.

Worst. Dad. Ever.

In late September, Miley Cyrus ran off a stage in Utah because she was sick. She later Tweeted that she was in the "worst pain" she had ever felt.

Soon after the incident, Miley's co-star, Cody Linley, told KTLA.com that his pal had contracted the dreaded H1N1 virus.

"The next day she told me she had the swine flu," Linley said, referring to a conversation with Cyrus following the aforementioned concert.

Miles


However, earlier today, Miley's rep wanted to make something very clear: "She did not have swine flu."

Phew. Thank goodness this manufactured drama is cleared up. If only there was some social networking site on which Miley herself could update fans about her status.

Does anyone know of anything like that?

Note to Kim Kardashian: stick to starring in sex tapes.

The reality TV vixen makes her sitcom debut tonight, appearing as a version of herself in a scene with Michael Strahan on the abysmal sitcom Brothers.

In the scene below, she confronts - and punches! - the former New York Giants linebacker after rumors have spread that she's knocked up with his child.

“It’s something that you learn along the way,” she said of scripted acting, which is surprising considering she does it each week on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “You do it angry, then you play along with it a little bit and do it flirty, you try and think, ‘Okay. What do they want? And how would you really do it in real life?' You just go through different scenarios in your mind."

Kim says she could see more acting gigs in her future. As for her sisters:

"Maybe not Kourtney. She’s way more low-key and not really into it. And now that she’s having a baby she probably wouldn’t. I definitely see Khloe.”

The White House has released the first official family photo of the 44th President of the United States and his family, taken September 1 by Annie Leibovitz.

The picture of President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha Obama was taken in the White House's Green Room.

Outdoorsy First Lady

Bo the First Portugese Water Dog apparently had a prior engagement.

What a cute photograph. Follow the link for many more Barack and Michelle Obama pictures from their time on the campaign trail and as the nation's First Couple.

This has truly been a memorable week for Lindsay Lohan for several reasons:

  • She did not die (not to be taken for granted with her).
  • She stayed out of jail (also never to be underestimated).
  • She praised the maturity of sister and fellow club-goer Ali Lohan.
  • She's officially allowed back in one of her fave clubs. Go Lindsay!

According to the New York Post, HoHan is no longer persona non grata at Avenue, the hotspot that banned her ass earlier this year following her Tweeting about Justin Timberlake cheating on Jessica Biel by dancing with another woman.

She later claimed her Twitter was hacked. As if that happens. Then again, most people don't make their voicemail password 1234, so who knows with her.

Healthy Lindsay

In any case, the alleged actress "besieged the management with calls and e-mails to let her back in, and she promised to be on her best behavior."

They capitulated, and this past week, she's already hit Avenue twice.

God help us all.

We plead with those close to her again: Save Lindsay Lohan!

MLB Playoff ticket: $150.

Beers at $8 each: Probably around $80 in this case.

Taking a drunken dip in a waterfall: Idiotic Priceless.

It's looking like the New York Yankees will be drenched in champagne after the American League Championship Series concludes, but one L.A. Angels fan was determined to take a bath of his own during Game 5 Thursday night.

Yes, there is a waterfall beyond the outfield at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, and yes, some plastered guy jumped in. Gotta love L.A. fans. So fixated on the game.

Our favorite part? Yankee skipper Joe Girardi looking on in disgust - and not just because they were trailing 4-0 (N.Y. lost 7-6, but still leads the series 3-2).

Check out the video below ...
