You can't get much more different in every sense than Snooki and Erin Andrews, who we profiled in our first CMT Awards style showdown just moments ago.

While Hayden Panettiere and LeAnn Rimes aren't exactly carbon copies, they're certainly more similar than the aforementioned pair - especially last night.

The former Heroes star debuted a lighter, shorter hairstyle while playing up her baby blues in a turquoise and black lace Pucci dress. Definitely a hit, we say.

Meanwhile, LeAnn cinched her bold Mara Hoffman minidress with a suede corset belt, while adding some ankle-cuffed sandals and gold Neil Lane jewels.

Pretty much everyone not named Brandi Glanville would approve - but how does she stack up with Hayden? That's for you to decide. Vote below!

When Jersey Shore's Snooki and The Situation do battle with Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy in a fashion face-off ... there is no way to complete that sentence.

We're pretty sure this is unprecedented in human history. What can we say, we're trailblazers here at THG, with a considerable nod to last night's CMT Awards.

Mya Fashion Choice

All of the above scored invites to the country music event, as you probably guessed by now, and showcased their drastically different styles on the red carpet.

Proving just how country Jersey can be, the sparkling Nicole Polizzi amps up her bump while The Situation (Mike Sorrentino) covered up his abs – for once.

Meanwhile, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews rocked a skin-tight mini with her handsome date, former Dancing with the Stars partner and possible boyfriend.

Which tandem looked better? Vote below!

Chris Brown may have been denied entry by the U.K. because of last year's Rihanna incident, but he managed to put his extra time here in the U.S. to good use.

The singer has been busy rebuilding his image.

If he's trying to prove he's actually a good guy, this helps. Here's him handing $25,000 checks to the American Red Cross and the Central Virginia Food Bank:

Chris Brown made a pair of generous donations in the past week alone.

Brown Tweeted these photos personally, and some might say that he only gave to charity so he could publicize it and repair his image, but that's not entirely fair.

We'll use our own, frequent Angelina Jolie defense: No matter what his personal motivations for humanitarianism are, his money and time still goes a long way.

So, let us be the first to say: Good job Chris!

We profiled Rihanna's red hair earlier this week.

We also took a listen (and liking) to her hot new collaboration with Eminem from his upcoming album, Recovery. The girl can definitely be pretty bad ass.

But inside is also a fashionista waiting to come out.

Gracing the cover of the July issue of Elle, Rihanna muses on fashion and has a few things to say about glamorous, often unattainable - ideals of designers.

"I respect designers who aren't afraid to go outside the box," she says.

"I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited," the singer continued. "I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure."

Of course, the beauty is leaving her mark on couture, and not just with the shocking ensembles she wears live. She's become a high-end icon as well.

"There are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me."

"I'm a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci. That was a big deal."

Global hunk and sports icon Cristiano Ronaldo of the Portuguese national soccer team was spotted prepping for his team's opener in South Africa yesterday.

Or was he?

The 25-year-old Ronaldo, who's been linked to both Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian sexually in the past year, is looking a little stiff in the image below.

Perhaps we're just used to seeing him shirtless and sweaty. Or perhaps he's just a wax replica. What do you think? Tell us in this edition of Real or Wax!

Former U.S. Senator and Presidential candidate John Edwards turns 57 today. The disgraced politician has given us at least that may absurd stories in recent years.

Celebrity sex scandals have become common, and the political realm is no exception. But Edwards' stands out as the most ridiculous of all time for two reasons:

  • He knocked up Rielle Hunter while running for president. Unlike Tiger Woods or Jesse James, his entire career hinged on the public's opinion of him.
  • He sabotaged himself beyond the point of redemption, an almost impossible feat. Even Bill Clinton, who was impeached, largely repaired his image.

Guess when you cheat on your cancer-stricken wife, impregnate your weird mistress, make a sex tape with her, pay her hush money out of campaign coffers, and lie through your teeth about it all repeatedly to the public, there's no going back.

Happy birthday, John! You disgust us, but thanks for the material!

OMG ... Are Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston back together at last?!?!?!

No.

You'd think at some point, Star could come up with some new stories, or at least put a new twist on the whole Brad and Jen thing, like a love child or something.

Instead, the tabloid's new issue gives us what we always get when they can't find anything else - anonymous claims that Jennifer Aniston took back what's hers!

Yup, at long last, America's Sweetheart has gotten revenge and stabbed the evil vixen in the back. Figuratively, of course. And by figuratively we mean not at all.

Backstabbing Jen!

BEHIND HER BACK: But for how long? Just wait 'til Angie reads this!

The cover teases an intimate encounter in Brad Pitt's private office, which sounds particularly hot, as well as calls, texts and e-mails. Jen just wants to start over!

Come on, people.

Angelina Jolie turned 35 last week, and as we said in our birthday tribute, you may hate her for breaking up Brad and Jen, but it doesn't make her all bad.

In fact, she's pretty awesome compared to most celebrities. Those reports of lies, drugs and lovers may make great headlines, but they're likely all BS.

She and Brad have been together for years now. We felt bad for Jennifer Aniston too, but isn't it time we put this behind us? Can't we all just get along?

At least until next week's issue of Star?

When Kim Kardashian bent over for Ray J on tape, it didn't hurt her family. In fact, that act eventually led to a reality show and global fame for a group of individuals no one would ever have heard of if Kim didn't take one for her siblings.

(Literally!)

Similarly, while she may be crying a river in interviews, Kendra Wilkinson's publicized intercourse will pad her and her husband's bank account by nine figures. Hard to sympathize with her family for that decision.

However, Danielle Staub is a 47-year old mother of two and fellow Real Housewife of New Jersey Jacqueline Laurita can't believe Danielle would expose her children to such filth as these photos and their affiliated video.

Laurita Tweeted yesterday: "Heard from a VERY reliable source that D (Danielle) released her OWN sex tape. Heard it's disgusting. Such disregard 4 her kids. I feel horrible 4 them."

Ray J Impersonator

So do we. But to give Staub the tiniest shred of credit: at least she is aware the tape will be released on June 14 and hasn't pretended like this is some horrible, unwanted violation of her privacy.

She's an irresponsible mother and troubled human being that clearly played a role in the production and distribution of this tape - but, hey, at least she admits it.

Only in Hollywood: Lindsay Lohan's lawyer is asking a judge to delay her trial because people hate her. Seriously, he claims she can't get a fair shake with a jury.

Ed McPherson represents Lindsay in the civil lawsuit in which people allege that she terrorized them during a wild, drunken Pacific Coast Highway joyride in 2007. 

This is the same incident for which Lindsay received a DUI, and which she is now on probation (and free on bail, and wearing a SCRAM device) as a result of.

Her attorney says the recent ankle monitor debacle is exactly why the civil lawsuit must be postponed - 'cause everyone wants her to crash and burn so bad!

According to McPherson, "Every facet of the criminal proceeding and every facet of Ms. Lohan's life ... have been reported on TMZ and other media outlets."

Nice Footwear

Are THG, TMZ and our ilk biasing jurors against Linds?

Saying this occurs "literally on a daily (and sometimes hourly) basis, there are current widespread public feelings of intense negativity against Ms. Lohan." 

Referencing comments left on celebrity gossip sites, some of which are quite foul, McPherson says it's highly likely the jury pool will be tainted against her.

Since jury trials are not held anonymously and on message boards, he may be reaching a little bit there. But he does make another, more valid argument.

Since Lindsay could end up in jail for six months if the judge in her criminal case rules she violated her probation, the civil suit should be delayed, he says.

It won't be. The judge in the civil case already denied Lindsay's motion to postpone, though the issue may be revisited at her probation hearing on July 6.

NOTE: If you don't recall the incident she's being sued over, you gotta read this.

Britney Spears' top bodyguard, Fernando Flores, up and quit the star's security detail, claiming the star sexually harassed him in a series of odd come-ons.

Wonder how Jason Trawick feels about that.

Britney Spears Nude in Esquire

According to The Sun (UK), Britney Spears often paraded around naked in front of him and beckoned him into her bedroom. A pal revealed yesterday:

"She was always giving him the come on and he felt he could lose his job. He finally handed in his notice last week and is considering legal action."

"Working for Britney is tough. She's a nightmare to deal with, her emotions are out of control. She runs round the house naked and yelling at staff."

That does sound like a difficult work environment. If you're trying to do your job and a nude Britney Spears wants you to put it to her, you lose focus.

"All her guards knew they could be removed if they looked at her the wrong way. Unfortunately for Fernando, she took a liking to him," a source adds.

"So he was under even more pressure than most. He wanted to be a good security guard and look after her but the situation became unbearable."

The last straw allegedly came when Britney's dad Jamie - who is in legal control of her and can hire and fire staff - instituted a mandatory bra policy.

"Last month Jamie reprimanded and banned his daughter from going out without a bra and told her security team to enforce the rule," the friend said.

"Jamie went mental when he saw photos It was embarrassing to tell her to put on underwear. Some guys would do it but others were too ashamed."

"Fernando was made the fall guy. He was not fired but told he was to blame. It was at that point that he finally decided he had had enough."

The divorced father of two is considering a sexual harassment lawsuit.

** UPDATE: Flores went through with the suit in September 2010. Read about it NOW.
