How's this for public marital squabbling?

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is calling out his wife, Maria Shriver, for apparently violating a state law and holding her cell phone while driving.

Ahhnold himself passed that very law!

The celebrity gossip site TMZ posted two photographs Tuesday showing Shriver holding a phone behind the wheel, one Sunday and the other in July.

The site later added a video it said was shot Tuesday in Brentwood, a posh area of L.A., where the family lives. It shows Shriver holding a cell phone to her ear while driving a large SUV that appears to be a Cadillac Escalade.

She puts the phone down while the camera is rolling.

Upon learning of the infractions, the Governorator promised to regulate.

On his Twitter feed, Schwarzenegger wrote to TMZ's Harvey Levin: "Thanks for bringing her violations to my attention. There's going to be swift action."

Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear says that by "swift action," the governor means he'll ask his wife not to hold her cellphone while driving.

Never listen to Ashton Kutcher.

That's the lesson we're taking away from the new issue of GQ, after reading that he once tried to encourage then-girlfriend January Jones to quit acting.

"[He] was NOT supportive of my acting," the Mad Men star tells the magazine. "He was like, 'I don't think you're going to be good at this.' So, f**k you!"

Damn straight!

Now that the Golden Globe-nominated actress stars as depressed housewife Betty Draper on the Emmy-winning AMC series, she isn't holding a grudge against Demi Moore's Twitter-obsessed husband, who "only has nice things to say" now.

"If anything, I should thank him," she says, putting the best spin on it. "The minute you tell me I can't do something, that's when I'm most motivated."

January never seemed so hot until now.

The onetime Abercrombie and Fitch model was at the gravesite of Doors frontman Jim Morrison in Paris when she realized she was "miserable" modeling.

"I left the agency and then - very quickly - decided to go to L.A. and try acting," January Jones recalls of how she got her start. "Without any training!"

She's still searching for the right guy, however.

"Dear men of America," she says into the GQ interviewer's recorder. "I like beer. I like football. I'm probably the most interesting girl you'll ever meet."

Anna Nicole Smith's death wasn't pretty. In fact, it was the polar opposite.

Revelations made in the first hours of the preliminary hearing against Howard K. Stern, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor - the trio facing a combined 23 felony charges relating to the star's drug use and death - are disgusting.

We're talkin' feces in the bed, infections in uncomfortable places, blue-lipped ugliness. Detectives investigating the Playboy model's death found the following:

  • Smith was found February 8, 2007, covered with feces.
  • A dozen different prescription and illicit drugs from her hotel room, many prescribed by the hundreds, included powerful sedatives and muscle relaxers.
  • Howard K. Stern had served Anna, who was complaining of flu-like symptoms, children's electrolyte formula Pedialyte in a baby bottle. Great imagery.
  • Smith's cause of death was ruled acute combined drug toxicity of chloral hydrate, with additional drugs contributing. Sound like someone else we know?
  • Coroners say Smith had an infected abscess on her buttock and that Dr. Khristine Eroshevich admitted that Smith had been taking meds via injection.
  • Medications including methadone had been shipped to Smith's P.O. box during her stay in the Bahamas and were sometimes picked up by Stern.

Anna Nicole Smith (1968-2007) was a deeply disturbed individual.

Yeah. And it's actually much worse than you think. One can only wonder what will happen when Larry Birkhead is called to the stand in the case this week.

It's been rumored for weeks, after a contestant from the yet-to-be-taped show spilled the beans (as did our man Reality Steve), and now it's been confirmed:

Jake Pavelka will be the next star of The Bachelor!

Ben Mobbed By Girls

Brittney Gammel, a Learjet pilot, told a Tennessee radio station that the show's 14th season begins taping in November and that Jake is handing out roses.

Looks like she was right.

“I’ve dated some really amazing girls, but I’ve never been successful at finding that one girl,” he says. “I saw how the whole thing came together with Jillian. I saw how the process works and I believe in it. That’s a unique way to meet somebody.”

Jake Pavelka, who did some acting earlier in life as Jake Landrum, is best known for being a commercial jet pilot - and for being sooooo nice and handsome!

Jake Pavelka's Bachelor announcement came Tuesday night from ABC.

If you are not familiar with The Bachelor or Jake, he hails from Dallas, and was one of the contestants on The Bachelorette last season, featuring Jillian Harris.

Jake made it kind of far but failed to win Jillian's heart. He did, however, win praise - and no small amount of criticism - when he returned to the show after being sent packing to warn Jillian about fellow contestant Wes Hayden's intentions.

Basically, Jake said Wes had a girlfriend named Laurel Kagay back home and was a liar. So he's either a rat or a liar, but some people lauded Jake's heroics.

In any case, he beat out fellow Jillian castoffs Reid Rosenthal and Kiptyn Locke for the job (Ed Swiderski was picked as the winner). So ... goooo Jake!

Are you excited to see Jake Pavelka as The Bachelor?

It's been a rough couple of months for Dr. Conrad Murray.

Not only is he likely responsible, at least in part, for the death of the world's most popular entertainer, but he's being sued for back child support! Rough!

Regarding his ongoing child support case, the doc says he and his new lawyer are determined to make all non Michael Jackson-related problems go away.

Problems he can make go away, that is.

Murray only has four more days to report to a Las Vegas court before a judge will issue a bench warrant for his arrest for missing a child support hearing.

Conrad was a no-show October 7.

His new lawyer, Chris Aaron, says that MJ's personal dcotor is desperately trying to work out a "temporary resolution" with the District Attorney's office.

Aaron says Murray has a perfectly good explanation for going MIA, saying, "It was not intentional missing his court date - it was simply an oversight. Dr. Murray has every intention of resolving and taking care of his personal responsibilities."

Murray is accused of stiffing baby mama Nenita Malibiran out of $13,311.47 in payments for their 10-year-old son. That will get you in serious trouble.

But not as much as when you fuel Michael Jackson with Propofol, a powerful anesthesia which the L.A. County Coroner says killed the music icon.

A criminal case could be imminent.

Jon Gosselin has been ordered to return a staggering $180,000 he took from a joint account he shares with estranged wife Kate in violation of a arbitrator's order.

Kate alleged that Jon cleaned out the account of more than $200,000 (her story kept changing, and the amount increasing, to $235,000), leaving her destitute.

Kate Gosselin Thin

Jon said he withdrew only $22,000, which was clearly a lie, and also accused his ex of fabricating that she can't pay bills when she herself is hiding $1 million.

According to Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, "The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date."

Kate Gosselin said in a statement, "As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children."

"Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as Jon and I have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues."

This picture was taken in court today. Just kidding!

Speaking on behalf of Team Jon was his lawyer, Mark Heller.

"All of the attorneys on both sides worked very hard. We are all very pleased with the outcome of the court proceeding and the arbitration session," he said, putting on an act. "We are very hopeful that there will soon be a resolution."

Jon is thus required to give back that cash by October 26 - the next time they two are back in court - or appear before the judge for a contempt proceeding.

In response to Jon's allegations that Kate is hoarding massive sums, the judge also ordered Kate to provide accounting of past expenses by the same date.

Today's Jon and Kate circus at the Montgomery County courthouse featured an oddball cast that included the Kate Plus 8 principals, a small army of lawyers, an arbitrator, a judge, Kate's omnipresent bodyguard and others.

Michael Lohan was even there to show support for his new BFF.

Don't hold your breath, Helen Harris-Scott.

The random nut job, who once claimed Michael Jackson communicated with her through his music, has just filed a creditor's claim against his estate, naturally.

Arnold Klein Pic

Mo' money, mo' problems, a wise man said.

Helen Harris-Scott filed the creditor's claim in L.A. County Superior Court on Friday, demanding an insane amount of money. Woman wants $50 million. Really.

Michael Jackson was an eccentric guy, and had myriad personal problems. But he's got nothing on the random wackos trying to grab a piece of his mammoth estate.

This isn't the woman's first legal battle with Jackson, either. Nor is it the first one she's likely to lose, or the first she probably concocted after a few too many drinks.

Helen Harris-Scott filed a lawsuit against Michael in 2006, claiming Jackson installed a tracking device in her car, wiretapped her phone and even had "organized criminals watching me inside my house in L.A. and reporting to him."

We're gonna guess that didn't happen.

Helen wanted $100 million from Michael Jackson then. She must be doing better for herself lately, since this time around, she's only asking for half that amount.

Yesterday, we reported that Vivid is putting out a Shauna Sand sex tape, but that Shauna is lawyering up, claiming they don't have permission to release it.

She admits it is just one of many sex tapes she has made with her current boyfriend, who we're pretty sure is Romain Chavent. Vivid says it's got the rights.

"We were approached by a third party with the footage" and are "comfortable with our legal position releasing the footage," the entertainment company stated.

Shauna's own stepdaughter, Shayne Lamas, called her out on this obvious PR stunt, the likes of which we have seen and reported on countless times before.

Anyone can see the footage from this "private" Shauna Sand video is of superior quality than some movies and TV shows, and the still photos are airbrushed.

Shauna Sand: HOT!!

Shauna Sand: Shameless staged sex tape star.

As the old adage goes, if a camera crew films you from multiple angles and you stare blankly at their lenses, as if the guy isn't even there, is it even a sex tape?

In any case, we're pretty sure that soon enough, we'll be asked to remove the pictures because we are violating her right to privacy or some such nonsense.

It's a flimsy legal claim, as she clearly wants us to see her getting violated in an entirely different way, but we'll comply because it's not worth the legal fees.

Don't ask us who wants to see this anyway. It's Shauna Sand. You can do better. Seriously. Think Heidi Montag, but like 15 years (and plastic surgeries) later.

    The Hollywood Gossip is not too proud to admit: we may now be the second most popular Twitter destination on the Internet.

    This sad news comes on the heels of the announcement that New Moon has officially opened an account (@Twilight) on the social networking system.

    Amanda Bynes Twit Pic

    While THG offers the most insightful, humorous, jarring celebrity gossip stories on the Web (Seriously. Follow us today.), we can't compete with exclusive shots from the most anticipated movie of the year.

    Earlier today, for example, this TwitPic of Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner flirting, while Robert Pattinson looks on menacingly, was released by the film's Twitter handler:

    Also, New Moon director Chris Weitz has told fans that his movie will run for two hours and 10 minutes. Will this be enough time to drool over Robsten in all its glory? It will have to be.

    Until Eclipse comes out, that is. And Breaking Dawn. And the next supermarket tabloid that lies about how far along Kristen Stewart is in her pregnancy.

    Taylor Swift wins so many awards, it's gotta be getting hard to keep track of where to put them all. The American Music Awards should add to her haul.

    Having already received multiple nominations for the Grammys, CMAs and MTV VMAs, the country star has been nominated for five more honors. Woo!

    Future Couple?

    Swift, 19, received five American Music Awards nods, including favorite female country music artist, favorite female pop artist and artist of the year.

    Note to certain rappers this time around: don't mess with Taylor!

    The late Michael Jackson, who passed away June 25, was another top nominee, with five nominations, followed by rapper Eminem, who nabbed four.

    Hopefully the AMAs go more smoothly than the VMAs for Taylor Swift.

    Beyonce, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon and T.I. each received three nods. We just hope that Kanye West doesn't decide to show up.

    Paula Abdul, Adam Lambert and Snoop Dogg revealed the nominees and the live lineup, including Lambert, Jennifer Lopez, and the Black Eyed Peas.

    For the first time in the show's history, fans will bdetermine the final four nominees of the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award by voting on ABC.com.

    Among those considered for the category are Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga, Gloriana, the Zac Brown Band, Keri Hilson and Jermiah. Should be close!

    The AMAs will air live on Sunday, November22, at 8 p.m. EST.
