THG has already introduced readers to Cynthia Bailey.

Now, it's time to meet the other woman that will debut as a cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in October. Let's give it up for Phaedra Parks!

As the Managing Partner of The Parks Group, P.C., an Atlanta-based law firm, Parks has represented such celebrities as Jermaine Dupri and Bobby Brown. She likes to brag about the charities with which she's involved, but the main focus of her time on this Bravo series will be her marriage to Apollo Nida.

A younger man, Apollo is on parole for running an auto theft ring and has spent six years in prison for a pair of unrelated crimes.

Parks is knocked up with the couple's first child and a network press release says she "has thrown herself into planning the perfect southern baby shower." If that doesn't make for must-see viewing, we have no idea what does! **

** With the exception of anything else on television.

Director John Chu doesn't wish to over-hype the upcoming Justin Bieber movie, but, well, it "will be a pretty cool story for our time," he told MTV in a recent interview.

Chu said he is currently touring with the singer and trying to figure out the exact format of the film. All he knows for certain right now is that it will be released in February 2011.

"There's not going to be acted-out scenes and I can't talk about the rest. It's not your typical concert film and it's not going to be a biopic ... but it is about his life," Chu said. "I think it's more of a documentary. We're going to figure it out as we go."

As long as Bieber's hair and smiling face are on screen, we're guessing fans will be satisfied. And as long as he isn't groping Kim Kardashian, Bill O'Reilly won't complain.

Describing Bieber as a "really cool guy" and "legitimate talent," Chu sold the film as a biopic for anyone and everyone:

"[It's] a movie for his fans, a movie for people who don't know him, and we're gonna tell the underdog story of where he came from. Because it's a really fascinating story and it has a lot to do with our sort of digital lifestyle now... we're gonna make a really fun movie."

With all this hype, the flick may be considered a disappointment if it doesn't earn more money than Avatar.

Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are reuniting, if only for a night.

The best Friends will appear together on the second season premiere of Cougar Town, ABC announced Monday. The episode airs September 22.

Aniston, who is supposedly dating John Mayer again, will play a "shrink named Bonnie" to Cox's Jules, executive producer Bill Lawrence said.

Bill describes her as a "Kind of a get-too-involved-in-her-life-type of therapist" and says of Courtney and Jen: "Those guys are so close in real life they kind of do that for each other anyway. Bonnie has the life Jules wishes she has."

Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston will share the screen again.

The role might be more than a one-off, too: "We're very intentionally implying that it's a therapist Courteney has been using for a while" Lawrence says. "So I'm crossing my fingers that if [Jennifer] has a good time it'll happen again."

This is great news for Cougar Town fans, and Aniston personally. She could use some positive press after The Switch bombed at the box office this weekend.

Somewhere, Bill O'Reilly is smiling ... and considering what issue to blow out of proportion next while swan-diving into a pile of cash, Scrooge McDuck style.

If you're married and a celebrity, Rachel Uchitel is available.

That much is true regardless of this story, which is based largely on hearsay, but come on. Would anyone put it past her to bone Jeremy London in Celebrity Rehab?

London's estranged wife Melissa says the Mallrats and Party of Five star is involved in a romantic relationship with the VIP Nightclub Hostess / professional mistress.

While he stopped short of denying a romance, London told Radar Online he had a strong relationship with Rachel Uchitel, an “amazing, intelligent, sensitive person.”

“I’m very protective of Rachel because of our friendship,” Jeremy London said.

“She’s been wrongfully persecuted by the media and because of what the media has done to me after I was nearly murdered, I relate to her.”

Jeremy and Melissa, who wed in 2006, have had a rocky relationship that escalated after he was recently kidnapped, robbed and forced to smoke drugs during an ordeal in Palm Springs. The pair recently entered rehab together.

London then joined the crew of Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab 4, while Melissa checked into Pasadena Recovery Center, to be treated for a prescription drug addiction.

Since completing treatment, however, the pair has separated but remain legally married to this day - a prerequisite for any sexual relationship with Rachel Uchitel.

Just the same, London recently denied it's anything physical.

“Rachel and I are good friends PERIOD,” London said of his wife's accusations. “Melissa is ridiculous... she has no idea what she’s talking about and is like a child."

Uchitel, whose affairs with Tiger Woods and David Boreanaz made her a household name and very, very rich, just checked into a sober living facility in Malibu, Calif. ... supposedly to stay close to London and other Rehab cast members.

The plot thickens ...

Kate Winslet has gone public with Louis Dowler.

The Oscar-winning actress and the British model were spotted on the streets of London over the weekend, walking hand-in-hand as they went to dinner and a nightclub on Saturday night.

In March, Winslet and director Sam Mendes announced they had split after nearly seven years of marriage and one son together. (Winslet also has a daughter from a previous marriage to Jim Threapleton).

Dowler and Winslet reportedly met through a mutual acquaintance and have "been on lots of dates and really enjoy each other's company," a source told Great Britian's The Mirror.  "Louis has a good sense of humor and is a lovely guy. He gets lots of attention when he's out and about - but he's not your typical model. Not at all big-headed.

"Kate certainly seems smitten... They've really got something special."

Heidi Montag and twin Playboy Playmates Karissa and Kristina Shannon engaged in egregious, arousing displays of girl-on-girl action? Eh, take it or leave it.

Spencer Pratt straight up putting it to Heidi? Where do we sign?!

That's basically the stance taken by Vivid Entertainment regarding the Spencer-Heidi Montag sex tape and the tape of Montag with the Shannon twins.

The adult film company's president, Steven Hirsch, has been very clear about his desire to obtain the rights to the sex tape of Heidi and Spencer Pratt.

He's convinced of its marketability, thinking it could top the Kim Kardashian sex tape in sales - and Spencer's $5 million asking price is not outrageous.

While we never thought we'd see the day that a naked Spencer Pratt sparks more interest than naked Playboy Playmate twins ... that's Speidi for you.

  • A Trophy Wife
  • Twins Against AIDS

What's more incredible here, that Heidi Montag got naked with the Shannon Twins in the first place, or that Vivid would rather see her naked with Spencer Pratt?

Pratt, who says he has dreamed of porn stardom since 2005, is trying to sell homemade sex tapes of himself and Montag and Heidi with twin blonde tandem.

The soon-to-be former spouses are, not surprisingly, feuding over his planned release of the tape, which he says he'll call off if she agrees to halt their divorce and co-star in another reality show (about why she wants to leave him, ironically).

For now, though, he seems like he's cool going ahead with it.

On Twitter, Spencer Pratt promises "the Citizen Kane of sex tapes. Honestly, Orson Wells makes a guest appearance ... recommends you wait for the Special Edition Sex Tape. Blu-Ray, director's commentary, and bloopers!"

This guy is the greatest.

Montag, who hinted Friday she was "crying" over the scandal and asking for fans' prayers, finally shot back at her estranged hubby, Tweeting,  "F U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pratt's reply: "Seriously? You're going to start shit on twitter?"

Earlier in the day, Montag was feeling more peaceful, writing: "I want to live without fear. Life is short follow your dreams and spirit... Live like there is no tomorrow."

Very deep ... not unlike when Spencer ... oh, forget it, gross.

The Speidi sex tape: Does it exist?

 

Who would you rather watch naked?

Where can't script reading and vehicular manslaughter take you these days?

According to Perez Hilton, both Audrina Patridge from The Hills and former singer turned reality star Brandy have signed on for Dancing With The Stars.

The official announcement is scheduled for next Monday during Bachelor Pad.

The Bachelorette stars Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are both rumored to be among the cast members for the coming season as well, but we'll see.

Also reportedly being considered? Cheryl Cole, Teresa Giudice and ... wait for it ... Vienna Girardi. Never doubt ABC's ability to recycle its reality stars.

The Hills are no longer alive ... but DWTS hopes are!

Audrina Patridge being cast wouldn't shock us at all. She's got nothing else going on these days and will look good in all the costumes, if nothing else.

Brandy, though? Really? The producers were close to getting this one right, but got their signals crossed and should have tapped her sibling instead:

Over the next few weeks, Fantasia Barrino has a new album and a new season of her reality show coming out.

For that reason, it's been hard for some people to not question the authenticity of her recent problems, which started with an accusation that she made a sex tape with a married man and climaxed with a hospitalization for a pill overdose.

But the former American Idol champion says she really did sink that low on August 9.

"I didn't have any fight in me. I didn't care about anything. I just wanted out," Fantasia tells VH1 in a new Behind the Music interview, which airs tomorrow, the same day her new CD comes out.

Continuing to defend her against accusations that this is all an orchestrated PR stunt, Barrino added:

"I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can't accidentally take a whole bottle of pills." 

True. But you can ensure you'll be found before it's too late, as Fantasia did by texting manager Brian Dickens about 10 minutes after ingesting the pills.

Still, the singer - who reality show cameras have filmed alongside scandalous boyfriend Antwaun Cook over the last few days - insists she was upset when she awoke in the hospital and realized she was "still in this hellhole."

"I was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family – my father, dealing with men and their shit – I was tired," she says of the incident. "My head was hurting me. I was over it."

What do you think? Was the overdose truly a sign of Fantasia wanting to end her life? Or, we shudder to even think it, of her wanting to increase album sales and reality show ratings?

Vienna who?

That's what a doorman thought when the reigning winner of The Bachelor attempted to enter the Audi & Chopard Emmys kickoff party Sunday night at Cecconi's in West Hollywood. Vienna Girardi was turned away at the door.

Dressed in jeans and a sweat suit-like top, the 24-year-old was told she wasn't on the list. The doorman told her they were "at capacity." No E-listers allowed!

To her credit, Girardi, who was briefly engaged to Jake Pavelka before moving on with John Sala, didn't whine about the rejection and took it all in stride.

She and a friend went outside and waited for their car to be retrieved from the valet, at which point they were approached by none other than Kathy Griffin.

"I told her that the After the Final Rose, or whatever that was, was riveting," Griffin later recalled to Us. "I stand by my statement that it was riveting."

"I said that it didn't matter if public opinion went her way, I was on her side. I'm not willing to wear a 'Team Vienna' T-shirt or warm-up suit, which she is in, or run a marathon on her behalf. However, it does appear that Jake would be a douche!"

Couldn't agree more, Kath. Well spoken. Your thoughts?
