Country hotties Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are engaged! He popped the question May 9 - and in classy fashion for a self-proclaimed "hillbilly" singer.

"He called my dad and got his blessing first," Lambert told People of her boyfriend of five years. "That was so Southern and old-school and just perfect."

Equally perfect: The diamond-and-platinum ring he picked out.

"I was so proud of him," says Lambert. "He knew exactly what I would've wanted but it's so much more perfect than I could have picked out myself."

The setting for the proposal was distinctly down-home – in the woods near Lambert's Tishomingo, Okla., home, followed by a similarly informal party.

The engagement is yet another high point in a stellar year for Lambert, who in January scored her first No. 1 single with "White Liar" and in April won Album of the Year and Top Female Vocalist at the ACM Awards.

Congratulations to Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton!

Thanks to Betty White, the May 8 edition of Saturday Night Live posted the show's highest ratings in 18 months.

That hilarious hosting gig came about as the result of a passionate group of White supporters on Facebook, who created a group that pressured NBC to consider the actress.

Now, fans of White are at it again: the Facebook page "Getting Betty White to Host the Academy Awards” has amassed over 6,000 followers since launching Sunday night.

Not shabby support for an 88-year old former sitcom star. But will it enough to land her the job?

Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin served as co-hosts of last year's ceremony. Though each made us laugh a bunch of times, let's be honest: Oscar fashion has become a hotter topic than anything related to the ceremony itself.

Choosing White as next year's MC would go a long way toward changing that.

Do you think this is a good idea? Should Betty White host the Academy Awards?

According to Kim Kardashian, mom jeans are in.

We pray this doesn't become an actual trend.

But we could definitely get behind the style choices made by a trio of beauties over the last few weeks: Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Alba all broke out little black dresses at various public events.

To learn more about these outfits, along with other celebrity fashion decisions, visit the THG style store. Then, compare, contrast and vote below...

Fist pump with Ronnie, Vinny, Pauly D and The Situation while you can.

With Season 2 just months away, Jersey Shore's casting director recently admitted to Blackbook magazine that the entire cast will be replaced for the third season.

Snooki, J-Woww, Sammi and the guys demanded a big pay raise after the first season became MTV's biggest series. They got it ... but apparently for one year only.

Now a new cast of meathead characters will be ushered in come 2011.

Snook and The Sitch

Jersey Shore Season 2 will be Snooki's swan song.

One cast member who won't be too bummed to be off the show: J-Woww (Jenni Farley), who "cried her eyes out" when she found out the series had been renewed.

"She doesn't want to be on the show anymore," a source dished to Us Weekly. The problem? Her fellow castmates. "She isn't friends with them," an insider says.

Well, except one. "She and Snooki are really close." That's nice at least. As for the rest of them, they'll be partying ways for good this year. Does anyone care?

Would you watch Jersey Shore with a new cast?

It's one thing to have the support of your parents.

It's another thing to have the support of your parents when you're grinding with a stripper pole and then with a group of caged guys in a music video.

First, Billy Ray Cyrus assesed his daughter's controversial pole dance at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards by simply saying Miley "loves entertaining people."

Now, he apparently sees no problem with Miley prancing around in a provocative outfit and sexing it up with a bunch of guys in her video for "Can't Be Tamed."

"My dad loves it," the former Disney star told MTV News of the video. "[He] was thinking I was a little crazy while I was writing it because when you're hearing 'feathers coming out of your hands,' [you think] 'oh wow, looks crazy!'

"[But] they were so proud of the treatment that I came up for it."

Fan reaction to the video has been mixed. Some are happy to see Miley embracing a provocative, mature side; others believe she's setting a bad example for her young fan base.

It's no shock that Billy Ray is on Miley's side, though. This is the same father that let his nine-year old daughter walk the red carpet in THIS OUTFIT.

Tiger and Elin Woods' divorce, while not official yet, is reportedly in the works, and will be banged out hard and fast ... insert obligatory Joslyn James joke here.

The golfer and his estranged wife are trying to strike agreements on custody and division of assets. Once they do, they'll quietly and quickly file divorce papers.

This according to sources very familiar with the situation.

Not surprisingly, the important thing for both Tiger and Elin Woods, aside from equitable sharing of their kids, is keeping the terms of the divorce confidential. 

Tiger Woods has a divorce lawyer team working on this, including West Palm Beach lawyer Thomas Sasser, an expert in child custody in multiple jurisdictions.

His goals? Privacy and keeping his legal options open.

Elin and Tiger Woods' divorce looks inevitable at this point.

One of the options is to actually file for divorce in Sweden, where Elin wants to move with the kids. Tiger would have to submit to the jurisdiction of the court.

Wherever the divorce is filed, the plan is to take whatever measures are necessary to keep the custody and property settlement agreements out of court files.

The quicker and quieter the divorce, the better.

The big issue, according to insiders, is that Tiger wants either custody or visitation, and assurance that he can go to court and enforce the deal if Elin violates it. 

Tiger wants the option to go to either a Swedish or American court to enforce whatever custody agreement is in place, should Elin Nordegren Woods break it.

As of right now, the couple has not reached agreement on any of the major issues ... don't expect a huge press release to be sent out when and if they do.

Did Mel Gibson cheat on baby mama Oksana Grigorieva with Violet Kowal?

That's what the National Enquirer, reigning King of Celebrity Cheating Scandals, alleges in its latest issue. This supposedly happened while Oksana was preggers.

Oh, and Violet Kowal is apparently a "Polish porn queen."

Gibson's camp is adamantly denying the report, which says Oscar winner's sudden split from Oksana was the result of a torrid affair with the Polish porn purveyor.

According to the tabloid, the 54-year-old actor-director and the 39-year-old singer called it quits last month after Oskana learned Mel cheated on her Violet Kowal.

Kowal's manager tells E! News that she's sticking to her story, though she insists that Kowal, now based in Los Angeles, is not a porn star but a "business woman."

Did Mel cheat on his mistress-turned-girlfriend with another mistress?

Whatever the semantics, Gibson's attorney has labeled Kowal's tale "an absurd fabrication." We'd be inclined to believe Mel, although you never know anymore.

Do the words Rielle Hunter ring a bell? Sure, for every Rielle, there's a Vera Baker, but do you put it past Mel Gibson to cheat on a pregnant Oksana Grigorieva?

This was a man who knocked up Oksana while married to his wife of 30 years, Robyn, with whom he has seven children. Does he get the benefit of the doubt?

Moreover, could this be the shocking tell-all detail Oksana promised in April?

Gibson and Grigorieva dated for over a year and have a 6-month-old daughter, Lucia, together. Reps for the baby mama were unavailable for comment on this.

Michael Lohan will stop at nothing to beg for attention email baseless, immature threats to THG save Lindsay Lohan's life. And he's got himself a plan.

The actress' father's "rehab plan" for her sounds awesome, too. It involves locking her in a lavish castle right in the middle of ... Long Island. Really.

Late last week, Mike asked the judge in Lindsay's DUI case to send her to rehab in lieu of sending her to jail for missing alcohol education classes ... and the place Michael suggested to send her is the very expensive Oheka Castle.

Sounds great. Just two things:

  1. The castle isn't even a rehab facility.
  2. It costs $10,000 a day. A tad steep for Lindsay these days, what with her struggling to find work and consolidate credit card debt and all.

Michael claims "several family members have come forward" to help pay for Lindsay's treatment and is hoping the castle's owner will give him a family discount.

Don't hold your breath, dude. That's the place Kevin Jonas married Danielle Deleasa. Business is great at the resort ... we don't see a discount in your future.
