The preliminary hearing for the three shady defendants accused of enabling the drug habit of Anna Nicole Smith - her former companion Howard K. Stern and her former Drs. Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich - begins this week.

Those three are in deep $h!t, but ironically, Stern's fate could be in the hands of Larry Birkhead. His former rival will be in the spotlight, and a sticky situation.

Prosecutors will ask the father of Anna's daughter, who will testify as soon as today, about various comments he made about Howard K. Stern back in 2007.

Birkhead made such comments to celebrity gossip outlets during the time he was battling Howard over custody of - and who was the father of - Dannielynn.

But Birkhead and Stern settled the custody dispute amicably after Larry was confirmed to be the father, and they have since been united on all things Anna.

Larry Birkhead, Dannielynn and a photographer go to the pumpkin patch.

So does Birkhead now back off his statements about Stern being an enabler? Does the prosecution call a witness who says the reverse of what they want?

It would be interesting, to say the least, if Birkhead backed off his story of Stern playing a harmful role in Anna's life now that their custody battle is over.

Doing a complete 180 seems like a stretch, but he could now say that some of the statements he made about Howard K. Stern were in the heat of battle.

In any case, Howard K. Stern, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich have pleaded not guilty to a grand total of 23 felony charges. Stay tuned.

The 11 contestants remaining performed one of four new styles last night: country two-step, lambada, bolero and Charleston.

While the latter was cute and entertaining, those that grinded to the lambada stole the show with a pair of "forbidden dances" practically too hot for TV.

Indeed, the FCC might level a few fines against Derek Hough and Joanna Krupa, as well as Mya and Dmitry Chaplin, after those four burned up the dance floor. Hough even pulled a Taylor Lautner and went shirtless.

Mya and Dmitry

FOX made Carrie Underwood a star on the fourth season of American Idol. Or at least broadcast it when she made herself a country star on that very program.

How the network is giving Carrie her own two-hour variety special!

The star will host Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton and fellow American Idol winner David Cook on the December 7 show, produced by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe.

The big Carrie Underwood television broadcast will be tentatively titled Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

After selling 10 million albums and winning four Grammys, Underwood will sing her hits and new songs, as well as perform in comedy skits on the show.

Would you watch a Carrie Underwood variety show?

While the Carrie Underwood show is a one-time event, the Reporter says the networks are looking to revive the once-popular (and cheap) variety format.

This is best evidenced by the creation of the Jay Leno Show every night at 10 p.m. on NBC, but also by CBS' John Mayer pilot, which is now in the works.

That will be called The Douchebag Hour. Just kidding. Sort of.

Heidi Klum has become a mom for the fourth time!

The supermodel gave birth to a girl, Lou Samuel, on October 9 in Los Angeles, her rep confirms. She joins beautiful siblings Johan, 2, Henry, 4, and Leni, 5.

Her husband, Seal, released the following statement Monday:

"It's difficult to imagine loving another child as much as you love your existing children. Anyone who has a family will tell you this."

"Where will one find that extra love? If you love your existing children with all your heart, how can one possibly find more heart with which to love another?"

"On Friday, Oct. 9, 2009, at 7:46 p.m., the answer to this question came in the form of our fourth child and second daughter. Lou Sulola Samuel was born."

"From the moment she looked into both of our eyes, it was endless love at first sight. She is beautiful beyond words and we are happy that she chose us to watch her grow over the coming years."

Congratulations to the happy family!

Shayne Lamas, one of the many daughters of actor Lorenzo Lamas, is knocking her former stepmother Shauna Sand for her staring role in sex tape.

As we reported yesterday, a Shauna Sand sex tape is set to be released. The former model admits she was involved, but does not want it released.

Yeah, right.

Shayne, who you may remember as the winner of The Bachelor season starring Matt Grant (they lasted a good month) is calling BS on Shauna:

"Isn't that convenient that her tape just happened to be leaked the day after my show premiered. I just feel bad for my little sisters," she said.

Leave it to Lamas debuted Sunday on E!

We'll keep you posted on anything we hear regarding Shauna Sand sex tape, but that's all we've got at the moment. Thank you for weighing in, Shayne Lamas.

Shayne had no comment on who will be the next Bachelor. However we're sure she could be convinced to enlist as a contestant again if the producers allowed.

Everyone's a critic.

When Whoopi Goldberg brought up Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize win on Monday's The View, guest-host Rachel Campos-Duffy, a former reality TV star and current blogger for Anderson Cooper's AC 360 on CNN, said she was shocked.

She's far from alone there, but her rationale was interesting.

"I think personally, for me, that it's Obama's radical abortion position that makes him the least qualified for the prize," Rachel Campos Duffy said.

Joy Behar chimed in with a different take: "We were starting wars. Now we're not."

"I don't know what's going to happen in Afghanistan. It is a little ironic that he is involved in two wars and would be considered the peace person."

"But he didn't start them, and he is trying to end the conflict, and he is trying to bring diplomacy around the world and start a new conversation."

Campos Duffy asks, in similar fashion to some recent late night bashing of Barack, "So basically, he just gets a prize for not being George Bush?"

Behar laughed. "That's true. He does get a prize for not being George Bush."

Yeah, yeah. We've heard it all before. Bring back Heidi Montag, The View!

Does Obama deserve the Nobel Prize?

If Jon Gosselin ever needs a way to blow off steam following his many bitter and public fights with estranged wife Kate, Michael Lohan has some ideas.

Lindsay Lohan's dad stopped by Jon's home in Wernersville, Pa., on Sunday to urge the father of eight to join the Celebrity Boxing Federation. Really.

"I am in the Celebrity Boxing Federation, so I had to go to Philadelphia to meet with the chairman," Lohan said. "They asked me if Jon would fight."

Jon declined. But the occasion at least afforded his dirtbag, train wreck counterpart to meet Mady, Cara, Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin.

Gosselin, Lohan said, seemed like "an unbelievable father. His kids are the most adorable children and they love him very much and he loves them."

Funny, we've also read that they hate him.

The Biggest Loser

PUT 'EM UP: Who'd you rather get in the ring with and pound senseless?

During his 90-minute stay, Lohan also rode Gosselin's dirt bike around the property and discussed their neat reality show idea, The Divorced Dads Club.

M-Lo has been pitching that to networks since the summer, when the losers became fast friends partying in the Hamptons with Jill Zarin and Kate Major.

"It looks good," he said, adding that he hopes Jon will soon get out of his TLC contract with Kate Plus 8 "so that people can see the real side" of them.

On a side note, the following conversation just happened at THG's office:

Editor: Who the heck would willingly be friends with Jon Gosselin?
Intern: Some jackass who just wants to sponge off of his fame.
Editor: Who the heck would be friends with Michael Lohan?
Intern: A douchebag.

So young, yet so smart. This kid's getting a raise.

Usually, politicians are ambitious creatures who choose words carefully and make open-ended statements, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wasn't this time.

She battled Barack Obama down to the wire for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, but don't expect the 2008 runner-up to ever try to succeed him.

Asked on Today if she will ever run for president again, the former First Lady and U.S. Senator, laughed heartily and replied: "No. No. No. I mean, this is a great job. It is a 24-7 job. And I'm looking forward to retirement at some point.”

She also addressed criticism that the head of the State Department is marginalized in debates over two national security threats: Afghanistan and Iran.

"I find it absurd," Clinton said, adding that maybe it is a "woman thing."

TEAM OF RIVALS: Obama brought Clinton into his administration.

"You know, I’m not one of these people who feels like I have to have my face in the front of the newspaper or on the TV every moment of the day. I would be irresponsible and negligent were I to say, 'Everything must come to me.'"

"Maybe that is a woman's thing. My goal is to be a positive force to implement the kind of changes the president and I believe are in the best interests of our country. But that doesn't mean it all has to be me, me, me all the time.”

Given Obama's late night skewering of late, perhaps there's just a little bit of HRC that's glad she's out of the limelight while the presidency is Barack's problem.

Forget Britney Spears. Heidi Montag has a new celebrity hero.

"She said she wanted to be the next Octomom!" her co-star Audrina Patridge said at the Surfrider's Gala on Friday in L.A. "I was like, 'Heidi, no you don't!'"

Octomom, a.k.a. Nadya Suleman, has 14 kids and no job. Or significant other. Oh yes, she was a single mother of six before giving birth to her octuplets.

Even she admits "it was a mistake" to have so many kids "without a father figure." Well, Heidi would pretty much be in the same boat with Spencer Pratt.

They've both got the plastic surgery thing down pat, too ...

Heidi's Pups

Heidi Montag and the useless baby factory who's become her new idol.

Patridge said that Montag is "ready for kids." Spencer Pratt, though?

On The View, he smarmy one said he wasn't sleeping with his baby-crazy wife wants to get pregnant and might pull the goalie on him. On last week's episode of The Hills, he joked (semi-seriously) that he wanted to get his tubes tied.

Audrina isn't concerned that the clash might cause them to split. They are "bickering back and forth, like any married couple sometimes does," she said.

She said that marriage has made Speidi an even stronger couple.

"They're really close," Patridge told Us. "They're inseparable."

Ready to smell like Reggie Bush's sweat?

How about Ray J's semen? Or perhaps Bruce Jenner's plastic body parts?

K. Kardashian

All are possibilities, now that Kim Kardashian has released her signature line of perfume. The socialite is the latest is an endless line of celebrities to sponsor a fragrance, joining Christina Aguilera and Paris Hilton, among many others.

It's hard not to wonder what someone like Kim knows about perfume. She may be able to smell a photo op from 1,000 yards away, but does that really translate into a desirable body odor?

Do you want to reek of desperation for attention? Purchase Kim Kardashian's perfume today!
