There was Xanax. There was rum. And there was Hulk Hogan's finger on the trigger of a gun.

But the former pro wrestler says a surprise phone call in December 2007 caused him to reconsider suicide.

In his upcoming book, "My Life Outside the Ring," Hogan details this horrific evening - which supposedly started at a strip club - and writes that Laila Ali (who co-hosted the updated version of American Gladiators with Hulk at the time) saved his life with a lucky, opportunistic call just seconds before he might have ended it.

What had pushed Hogan so close to the edge? The actions of his wife of 23 years, he writes.

"Hell, [Linda's] spending time with a 19-year-old boyfriend - in the house that I pay for," wrote Hogan of his ex's affair with Charlie Hill.

In the memoir, which will be released on October 27, Hogan also alleges that Linda is an alcoholic that threatned to beat son Nick with a wine bottle after his major car accident in August 2007.

Hulk claims a civil suit brought against him by the family of Nick's passenger - who is now permanently brain-damaged - is "for more money than I've made in my whole career."

Hmmm... no way that would prompt him to exaggerate stories in an autobiography, right?

We're not saying the man isn't troubled (just look at his family!), but it's hard not to raise an eyebrow when he details a last-second reprieve from suicide in a book that's going on sale while he's having financial problems. Just sayin.

Last spring on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick sent Molly Malaney home on an emotional season finale, popping the question to Melissa Rycroft instead.

But on the show's "After the Final Rose" special, he famously had a change of heart, breaking up with Melissa and asking Molly for a second chance.

She was shocked, but giddily accepted.

That sums up Molly's reaction to Jason's most recent request as well. He asked her to marry him and she said yes. Jason and Molly are engaged!

According to People, Jason got down on one knee in New Zealand last week, the same nation where The Bachelor finale was filmed last winter.

Molly Malaney will soon be the newest Mrs. Jason Mesnick!

Since the controversial Bachelor ending, which resulted in serious backlash against Mesnick (Molly Malaney did nothing wrong, but Jason's national TV dispatching of Melissa was scrutinized), the two have kept a very low profile.

They've also been doing the distance thing, with her living in Milwaukee and him in Seattle with his son, Ty, from his first marriage to ex-wife Hillary.

But we suspect they'll be moving in together, likely in Seattle, quite soon, now that Jason Mesnick has officially asked for Molly's hand in marriage.

The couple just returned on vacation to the site of Jason’s ill-fated first choice so that “Jason can do what he should have done in the last time he was here, and ask Molly to marry him,” says a source close to the lovebirds.

Congratulations to the couple! Click to enlarge more photos:

What a coincidence.

A day after Rihanna's new single comes out, Chris Brown's going on tour!

Well, he's announced plans to go on tour, anyway. To go on a Fan Appreciation Tour, no less. Brown wants to "thank folks who have stood by him" this year.

Chris' year has been marred by a February assault on his girlfriend and subsequent guilty plea on felony assault charges. Not a lot of positive PR in that.

Just the same, he's looking to get back to the music. Brown said his "first show back" would be October 27 at Power 105's Powerhouse show in New Jersey.

He's not the only one on the bill there, but there's more. His month-long jaunt kicks off November 14 at the House of Blues in Houston and will touch down in similar venues in 19 cities across the country, including L.A., Chicago and Boston.

Chris Brown's comeback is scheduled to begin soon. You in?

The small venues were chosen to encourage an intimate atmosphere geared toward real Chris Brown fans, according to the R&B singer's tour organizers.

Brown, who has been busy performing community labor in Virginia, unveiled his first single since February, "I Can Transform Ya," late last month.

Speaking of being transformed, his tour is sending a positive message:

A portion of tour proceeds will go to Best Buddies International, a group that provides employment and leadership opportunities for people with developmental disabilities, and to the Jenesse Center, which supports victims of domestic violence.

No donations make up for what he did and the message it sent, but you gotta credit him for doing all the right things since his guilty plea, at least.

Kate Gosselin is ready to tell her side of the story. Unfiltered.

Check that, it's completely filtered. There are going to be more softballs lobbed over the plate here than the Angels pitchers threw at the Yankees last night.

Wicked Witch of PA

After bonding with Meredith Viera on Today and the ladies of The View, the grating, reverse-mulleted mother of eight scored an hour-long special on TLC.

The final episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 as we know it is set to air next Monday, the same day they're due in court to hash out their bank account drama.

Clearly, this is them sticking it to Jon Gosselin, who TLC is suing for breach of contract after he halted production on the newly-renamed Kate Plus 8.

In the hour-long special, she'll be answering your pressing "questions about life, the show and moving on," the network announced in a press release.

They're even calling the gig You Ask, Kate Answers.

Queries can be posted on TLC's main show site. Here are just a few we would like to see Kate answer on the air during the special no one watches:

  • Do you try to be so mean or is it just your nature?
  • At what point did all the fame go to your head?
  • Who do the kids hate more, you or Jon?
  • Is that a dead porcupine on your head?

Based on a recent photo shoot for Details, it's clear that Adam Lambert doesn't have a problem with women at all.

As for rumored hermaphrodites? The American Idol runner-up sounds fond of them, as well.

Making the dreams of millions of music fans come true, Lambert confirmed via Twitter this week that he and the unusual artist are teaming up on a single. He wrote:

Yes it's true: I spent yesterday in the studio w the insanely talented and creative Lady GaGa recording a song that she wrote! I love her.

Gaga wrote the song a while ago and she thought it would be a good fit for me. It's a solo track. I feel so honored and lucky to be asked. GaGa just gets it, ya know?

If you're referring to fashion, Adam, then we don't exactly know, and she definitely doesn't get it. But if you're referring to great buzz and a highly-anticipated track, this is a pairing we can't wait to hear in action.

The 911 call made by Mayumi and Richard Heene Heene to Fort Collins, Colo., police during the original Balloon Boy hoax last week has been released.

Pretending to be distraught and worried about son Falcon Heene, Richard says he's sure his 6-year-old is in the balloon, pleading with the dispatcher:

"What do you do in a case like this? How the heck am I gonna get him down?"

Sickening what people will do and say for their 15 minutes.

These two should have taken some acting classes, as their attempts to act hysterical are mediocre at best, and their version of events is suspect.

Our favorite part? Richard Heene admitting he called the FAA before he called 911. Who would that occur to if this weren't an elaborate sham?

Listen to the 911 call by playing the video below ...

On paper, this match-up seems like more of a mismatch than Lindsay Lohan versus mental stability.

But as professional celebrity gossip bloggers, we're obligated to compare two stars when they're seen in public in the same outfit.

In this case, Megan Fox wore an Antonio Berardi dress for the premiere of Jennifer's Body in Los Angeles; Kanye's ugly girlfriend, Amber Rose, then donned the red version of the outfit at a Hollywood event this month.

Who looked better in the frock?

Fox vs. Rose

Who wore this dress better?

According to La Toya Jackson on last night's Dancing with the Stars results show, her late brother was a fan of the ABC competition.

The series returned the favor this week with a routine in Michael Jackson's honor, as the show's professionals spoke glowingly of the departed icon and then performed a version of his iconic "Thriller" dance.

Was this a true tribute to the singer? Or a ratings ploy? Call us cynical for even suggesting the latter, but it made more sense when DWTS honored Patrick Swayze in late September. At least he had actually taken part on the show.

Watch the video below and let us know your reaction to it:

Meanwhile, Michael Irvin must have incriminating evidence on all of America. What else explains how this poor dancer is still around?!? He didn't even find himself in the bottom two last night!

Natalie Coughlin got the axe instead, and seemed apologetic afterward. She said:

"I loved this so much. I guess I didn't show it, how much I loved it, but I really did. I'm sorry."

No apologies necessary, Nat. The country should be telling you how sorry it is for continuing to support Irvin, a former football star that is clearly giving less effort on the dance floor than any other contestant.

Lindsay Lohan may be a train wreck, but she's got a point here.

The alleged actress says she's tired of her dad, Michael Lohan, relentlessly slamming her in the press and using her for attention "as she tries to heal."

Okay, she's got half a point. Trying to heal? Not very hard, LL.

"I'm so hurt that this person who calls himself my father, needs to use the press to communicate with me," Lohan said in response to Michael's desired plan for a conservatorship over his daughter to protect her from destruction.

In an interview with Maury Povich that aired last Friday, the actress' father reached out to his daughter, claiming her health is rapidly deteriorating.

"There's nothing left of her," he said, noting that he "can't even look at her ... I just cry. When I hugged her, it's just this hollow, hollow person."

Lindsay Lohan says she's cut off all ties with her dad.

"I have not spoken to my father, nor have I responded to his threatening and erratic messages over the last several months," she tells Us Weekly.

"It's so sad that he needs to stay in the media spotlight by using my name and making up excessive lies. He should instead trying be a real father."

This concludes our latest installment of the Lohan family drama. We know where we stand at this point, but a couple of pressing questions linger:

Stay tuned.

Dr. Conrad Murray, the personal physician of Michael Jackson and the primary target of the police investigation into the singer's death, is hampered by it too.

He can't take care of his kid as a result, he says.

According to documents filed objecting to a pending arrest warrant against him for not paying his support, Dr. Conrad Murray explains the following crock:

"As a result of the media coverage of Michael Jackson's death, combined with the effects of the recession, [Murray] is simply unable to meet his obligations."

Murray's lawyer says the doctor has no intention to "evade his obligations."

But Murray "is temporarily unable to maintain a practice or obtain employment because of extensive media coverage related to the death of Michael Jackson."

Some of the facts the media is highlighting - such as Murray potentially having helped kill the greatest entertainer of all time - can't be positive PR, no.

The attorney says "one of the reasons he went to work for Michael Jackson was to pay this off" but that he never actually got paid by MJ for his time.

Again, possibly related to Dr. Conrad Murray not keeping him alive.

Murray is asking the judge to allow him to make "minimal payments." Meanwhile, he'll be looking for a job. He should try LinkedIn, like Sarah Palin.

Baby mama Nenita Malibiran (the mother of his 10-year-old son) obtained a judgment last month for $13,311.47 for missed child support payments.

She'd better pounce on those minimal payments while she can even get that much. Murray is expected to be charged in Jackson's death any time.
