Last night on The Hills, the crew marked 100 episodes of the MTV show with a trip to Costa Rica, which offered both incredible scenery and crazy hookups.

It was a nice departure from the clubs and lunches we see in L.A., but make no mistake, this was still The Hills, for better or worse, just in a jungle setting.

Here's THG's plus-minus recap of events ...

Immediately after landing, Kristin Cavallari speculates on who's going to hook up on the trip. Plus 18, because that's all they do, and the reason for going.

Kristin tells Stacie that Justin-Bobby is "the one" for Audrina Patridge, but Brody isn't "the one" for her. Are you effin' serious, cue card writers? Minus 7.

When Kristin kissed bartender Will, it irritated Brody Jenner, but didn't get a real rise out of him. Plus 4, as he reacted more like someone kissed his sister.

We used to sort of root for Kristin and Brody Jenner to get back together, but after all this waffling, we're pretty much over it... not unlike Brody. Minus 3.

Wait, were McKaela Line and Allie Lutz get invited? Sucks for them! Plus 7.

Charlie tells Justin-Bobby that he needs to make a move on Audrina. Not coerced by the producers at all. Even, because he does make a move, of sorts ...

You gotta love Justin-Bobby just walking by and randomly grabbing Audrina's ass like the low-class waste of space that he is. Consistent, at least. Plus 7.

Kristin tells Stacie and Taylor (a.k.a. Sleazy T) she's done with Brody after he embarrassed her in the bar. We'll see how long that lasts this time. Minus 4.

Stephanie Pratt serves absolutely zero purpose on the show. Minus 5.

Wow, Brody and Justin-Bobby are actually really good surfers. Plus 4.

Seriously, WTF is Justin-Bobby wearing?! Who rocks a stocking cap and long sleeves in Costa Rica? Minus 8 for lowering the douchebag bar to new depths.

After he invites her out, Kristin and Will dance together in the rain. Which actually does look really fun. We think we need to go to Costa Rica ASAP. Plus 10.

The Kristin-Will thing might seem cool or romantic, but we already know Brody doesn't care, and she's dating Hills cameraman Miguel Medina, so Minus 14.

Kristin and Will kiss. Maybe she's got a future in acting? Plus 5.

J-B asks Audrina if she'll ever come back to Costa Rica. She says, "Not with you." OWNED, but Minus 4 anyway, since she'll always crawl back to this loser.

No Spencer and Heidi? Even on the 100th episode? Minus 16, because as we've said before, the show needs Speidi, and didn't even explain their absence.

Lastly, Plus 8 to push us into positive territory. Why? While a shell of its former self, The Hills still has its moments, and has given us so many memories.

TOTAL: +2. SEASON: -12.

We're happy to hear that Jennifer Capriati is recovering from her prescription pill overdose on Sunday, but the former tennis great has a long road to recovery says a friend.

Former professional tour player Justin Gimelstob told The Early Show on CBS this morning that his pal "has a huge void that she needs to fill" in life, now that sports are no longer an option.

"She's in tremendous pain physically and mentally. She struggled with depression, and it's a tough story," Gimelstob said.

Exactly, Sports Illustrated: Jennifer Capriati was only 13 when she debuted on the women's tour. That's the problem she now faces.

Capriati may own three Grand Slam titles and a Gold Medal, but the 34-year old never enjoyed a regular childhood and the "social interaction" to help her later in life, added Gimelstob:

"She said tennis gives her structure. Without that, that's when the problems ensue, and she's had trouble finding an identity and a sense of purpose."

A somewhat apt comparison could likely be made here between Capriati and Lindsay Lohan, couldn't it? The latter fell off the rails as her movie career fell apart.

In closing, Gimelstob said Capriati's mother is remaining as positive as she can: "[Jennifer's mom] is a very religious woman. She said God is good [and] God is taking care of [Jen]."

Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi's emotionally-charged reunion is still days away from hitting the small screen on The Bachelorette, and it's already ugly.

Taped last Thursday, the former couple's combative, instantly infamous joint interview is set to air July 5, and some new, heated details have emerged.

According to a new ABC press release, Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka acknowledge that their romance is unfixable, and proceed to exchange insults.

Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison can only look on in awe.

The gist: Girardi tells Jake Pavelka he's a "liar" and a "fame whore," while Pavelka says she's jealous and undermines him. The Bachelor stars argue about who initiated the breakup, and Girardi denies she cheated with Gregory Michael.

At one point, the airhead Floridian bursts into tears and stomps off the set, while reports from witnesses say that an enraged Jake makes a fist at her.

Another insider who observed the confrontation told Us Weekly that Pavelka "couldn't get a word out - it was very reflective of their relationship."

Mediator Harrison often had to tell Girardi, "Vienna, let him talk." But "Vienna was on the defense," a source adds. "She was trying to play victim."

As we see it, we're the true victims in all of this.

Miley Cyrus has made it painfully clear for weeks now: she simply cannot be tamed.

But while this may be true in her wardrobe choices, the singer was cut down to size on the music charts last week. Her latest album, "Can't Be Tamed," finished third in sales, behind Eminem's "Recovery" and Drake's "Thank Me Later."

It was expected that Eminem would lead the way, but not by this wide of a margin. His new CD had the biggest opening week of any in 2010, moving over 753,000 copies.

As for Miley? She has to be disappointed, as "Can't Be Tamed" sold just 106,000 albums. That's an astounding 250,000 fewer than Cyrus' 2008 effort, "Breakout," sold during its first week of release.

Sales

Miley's fans will surely complain about our biased coverage now and make up excuses for their favorite artist. And that's fine, that's their right and we admire their passion.

But numbers don't lie: recent poll results show 70% of respondents laugh at the idea of Cyrus as a role model; moreover, her new CD actually sold fewer copies than her previous CD sold in its second week of release.

As we've been saying all along, is it possible Miley's new image may have gotten her attention, but turned away her fan base? Might she have been better served by slowly evolving as an artist, as opposed to pulling every transparent, cheap trick in the book just to prove she's changed?

These are questions Miley, her handlers and her cult-like followers will need to consider carefully.

  • I'm So Edgy!
  • A Tired Move

The public - literally! - is not buying Miley's tired attempts to be edgy and mature.

Rumors are circulating this morning that a seemingly male model appearing in Vogue Hommes Japan may be none other than pop star Lady Gaga in disguise.

You be the judge!

Stylist Nicola Formichetti posted the picture below (left) and others like it to his website with no explanation as to who the model is, or even his or her gender.

Some fans insist this is the latest outrageous look from the singer known for them ... this is not as weird as the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumor, but close.

It does look kinda like her ... but is it? Inspect and vote below!

Butch Gaga?

Is this Lady Gaga?

Bristol Palin is no stranger to the spotlight - her mom, Sarah, ran for Vice President of the U.S., and Bristol herself became a celebrity for having a child out of wedlock.

While the 19-year-old is in Alaska raising Tripp, she still makes news often, be it for her relationship with Levi Johnston, her TV debut or random magazine interviews.

Bristol Palin Shakes It

Speaking of which, regarding rumors that she and Levi are back together after a year at each other's throats, Bristol wouldn't really go into it with In Touch Weekly.

“There are a lot of rumors about everyone and everyone’s business,” she said. "We are working together and whatever is best for Tripp is what we are going to do.”

She is thrilled, however, to call attention to her guest-starring gig on her favorite TV show The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, a show about teen pregnancy.

In the episode, airing Monday, Bristol Palin plays herself and befriends Amy (Shailene Woodley), whom she meets at a music program for teen mothers.

“There was no hesitation on my part at all,” she tells In Touch. “It’s a family-based show, right up my alley. Teen pregnancy is something I can relate to."

"It was a good fit. Going through the teen pregnancy at the same time Amy was going through hers was extremely relatable. I had felt the same things.”

Bristol Palin adds that she's not hoping to become a movie star.

“I have never done anything like this,” she smiles, “and I don’t think I will ever do any sort of acting again. I’ll leave it to the experts. But I had a great time.”

She's also ready for her detractors: “I don’t really pay attention to the negative stuff written about me I don’t know why they would say anything negative."

"Just because we are dealing with the teen pregnancy issue and sex and relationships? It’s not like I am acting as a prostitute or something.”

No, but whether she educates and discourages or merely promotes and glorifies teen pregnancy while enhancing her own celebrity status is debatable.

Is she discouraging or promoting teen pregnancy?

Having been through some of the worst possible events in her marriage, Elizabeth Edwards feels a connection to a fellow scorned wife, Sandra Bullock.

"I'm not just a cuckolded wife," John Edwards' ex tells Matt Lauer. "I think about Sandra Bullock - who I don't know - what an incredible year she had."

"She won an Academy Award for an incredible performance, and more than that, took that story and integrated it into her own life in a healthy happy way."

The Blind Side star secretly adopted baby son Louis back in January, before learning that Jesse James cheated on her and filing to divorce her husband.

Which is part of Elizabeth's problem - you hear more about the latter.

"The stories you hear are not about all those great successes, but about the failure of her marriage," Edwards continues. "That's not who she is... I assume she wants to reclaim who she is in the same way I want to reclaim who I am."

BLIND SIDED: Elizabeth feels a connection with Sandra.

Elizabeth and John Edwards legally separated in January after he basically savaged their lives; the former North Carolina senator had recently admitted that he had fathered a baby girl, Quinn, with weird videographer mistress Rielle Hunter.

Having seen Rielle Hunter sit-down for an interview on Oprah, Elizabeth tells Lauer: "I still think this person is so completely unlike me that it's hard to imagine the same person could marry me and be attracted to that woman, as well."

Of John, whom she will likely divorce next year, she says, "I think I did marry a marvelous man. He changed over time. He's no longer the person I married."

"I still admire an enormous number of things about him."

"John's conduct through this whole thing was terrible and it makes people want him to pay for it," Elizabeth says. "On a personal level, he's paid a lot."

Fighting metastatic, stage-four breast cancer, with tumors spreading to her legs, spine and skull, she says she can't think about her younger kids (Emma, 12, and Jack, 10) growing up without a mom. "I don't let my head go that place," she says.

RIELLE TERRIBLE: John's cheating still shocks Elizabeth ... and us.

Just 24 hours before his emotional Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards, Chris Brown was searching deep within himself ... and the cleavage of Jenna Bentley.

At a Playboy Mansion party the previous night, Brown was apparently impressed with Bentley's assets, and according to an eyewitness, couldn't resist a squeeze.

The Kandyland party, which featured a special performance by Sean "Diddy" Combs in addition to naked babes, was held to raise money for the Karma Foundation.

Here's Chris with a little kandy of his own ...

After a quarter century on the air and amid some pretty significant personal controversy of late, Larry King will hang up the suspenders this fall.

The talk show host, 77, announced on Tuesday he will end his run on Larry King Live in the fall but will remain with CNN for occasional specials.

The decision to retire was made to "give me more time for my wife and I to get to the kids' little league games," the venerable newsman said.

Larry and wife Shawn Southwick have been embroiled in marital problems this year, both filing for divorce at one point before calling it off.

King was accused of an affair with Shannon Engemann, Shawn's sister, while she has been tied to their kids' little league coach of all people.

Hopefully Larry and Shawn can work things out.

In May, his wife, who has a history of painkiller addiction, was found with empty pill bottles strewn on her bed in a possible suicide attempt.

They have been married over a decade and have two young sons.

"Larry King defined the art of the TV interview," CNN said. "His candor, curiosity and compassion are legendary, and his ability to interview people from all walks of life – world leaders, celebrities and everyday people – has made him an icon."

"With this chapter closing I'm looking forward to the future and what my next chapter will bring," said a clearly emotional King.

We wish him the best with that.
