Kate Gosselin says Jon Gosselin did indeed remove more than $200,000 from their joint bank account - all their liquid assets - leaving her with only $1,000.

As a result, she can't even buy their eight kids food now.

"I have a stack of bills in my purse I can't drop in the mail," she cried on the Today Show this morning, following Jon's huge withdrawal. "The last thing I wanted was to do this show and end up not being able to pay our bills."

Their separation agreement won't allow either of the estranged spouses to withdraw money from the joint "liquid" account without mutual authorization.

Kate, however, is authorized to write checks for the family's expenses.

She says that, in addition to the $230,000 he supposedly yoinked this week, Jon removed $100,000 from the account earlier in the divorce process.

So worried was Kate that Jon would pull this stunt that she actually removed a big chunk of cash first, only to put it back because of the court order.

"I had taken $100,000 and put it aside so I could buy my kids food if this occurred," she says. "At some point, I removed it to keep it safe, on the suggestion of my lawyer, but had to put it back, according to the arbitrator."

Meanwhile, Jon's attorney claims he took money "he was entitled to" and expects that the train wreck will be awarded even more in the future.

"[Jon] has not withdrawn any money for his own remuneration, with the exception of the past several months wherein he believes he only withdrew approximately $170,000," Mark J. Heller said this afternoon in a statement.

"It is not unlikely that Jon will be awarded substantial additional funds."

In response, Kate Gosselin says, "It's wonderful to say he'll be awarded significant funds. However, there are not significant funds for him to be awarded."

"He needs to be awarded this? I'm sorry. When you've left your children and their mother unable to pay for the roof above their head, it is not acceptable."

As for Jon's claims that the kids no longer wish to participate in the show, Kate claims they were "wailing and sobbing" when production was suspended.

Kate feels the show needs to go on.

"It's something that the kids and I are still enjoying," she says. "The opportunities that they've been provided ... the kids are having trouble understanding why they're not here and why they're not doing that."

"I don't feel like it's time to end it. If we are all enjoying it, I just feel like Kate Plus 8 going on, the nine of us who want to continue it, should be able to."

The star of the newly-renamed Kate Plus 8 admits that, "Every day, I don't know what I'm going to wake up to. [Jon] has gone way far off the trail."

We get it, Esquire. You wanna be different.

For months, there's been non-stop talk about the hotness of Megan Fox. Incessant yammering abot how much money men would pay to see Olivia Wilde nude. Quiet whispers that Kate Gosselin is growing more gorgeous by the day.

Okay, we may have made the last one up, but the overall point remains the same: when it comes to discussion about the best looking females alive, there's little variety.

Hence, we're sure, Esquire's decision to name British actress Kate Beckinsale as the Sexiest Woman Alive. It's cool to be different, but come on.

At least make it seem like you believe what you claim. Beckinsale is perfectly attractive, but there are plenty other women by whom we'd prefer to be ridden. Do you agree?

For Levi Johnston, baby daddy of Bristol Palin, it's time to get crackin'.

Literally. Dude is cracking some serious nut in an ad for pistachios.

We're serious. For whatever reason, Levi is in a new commercial for Wonderful Pistachios, accompanied by his enormous bodyguard and manager, Tank.

The tagline? "Now Levi Johnston does it with protection." Unreal.

It's probably good Tank was on hand for the filming of this commercial, and he might want to stick around for awhile after. Todd Palin is going to try to run Levi's ass over with a snow machine if he sees this during the local news ...

In a riveting and unexpected 10-minute segment Thursday night's Late Show with David Letterman, the host told viewers of a suspected $2 million plot to extort him based on his past sexual relationships with female employees (plural).

The suspect, Robert Halderman, was arrested Thursday. Two of the women Dave allegedly slept with, Stephanie Birkitt and Holly Hester, have been identified.

If you watched Letterman's mea culpa live, or saw it online in the immediate aftermath, that was probably the last chance you'll ever get to, thanks to CBS.

The network never posted copies of the segment on CBS.com or on YouTube, and worked over the weekend to stamp out all copies of the host’s explanation.

We suppose that as eager as media companies are to distribute their content online, there are still some moments they would rather not disseminate widely.

If you didn't see David Letterman's stunning admission of affairs with staff members that resulted in an extortion plot against him, don't expect to get another shot.

CBS’ reasoning is obvious, from a business perspective: they likely find it embarrassing and think the scandal will go away if it makes the clip go away.

This move is inherently flawed, as it merely fuels increased interest in the story, and any people CBS does keep from viewing the clip are more likely to misguidedly believe Letterman's deeds were worse than they actually are.

CBS even takes it a step further, posting Friday’s cheerful interview with Larry David, but not Dave's chat that same night with House star Olivia Wilde.

Why? Perhaps because, in the course of telling a story about how she moved into a bus with her husband, the actress said jokingly to Letterman, “I’m sure you could get many, many women to move into your car with you.”

Ouch!

The network has been more lenient with clips of Stephanie Birkitt, who appeared on Late Show skits years ago (recently obtained Holly Hester pictures suggest that her affair with Letterman took place while he was still with NBC).

What do you think about the silencing of David Letterman's admission?

From Edward Cullen to... Prince Harry?!?

One of the most unexpected casting rumors going around is that Robert Pattinson is up for the role of royalty in an upcoming movie about Prince Harry.

According to UK's OK! Weekly, the Twilight Saga star and Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint are vying for the lead in The Spare, a film that will cover the life of this prince, most notably his reaction to the death of his mother and his time spent in the army.

  • Prince Harry Pic

Robert Pattinson as Prince Harry? What do you think of this possibility?

Shooting will begin next year in England and the Middle East, as director Peter Kosminsky said of the project:

"I feel a sense of compassion for [Prince Harry]. His parents break up in the most spectacularly public way, his mother dies in the most tragic and, again, public way and everything is picked over."

While Pattinson and Grint supposedly battle over the role, no word yet on who might play Chelsy Davy. Got any suggestions?

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem may not be expecting a baby anytime soon, despite rumors circulated by celebrity gossip sites dying for it to be true.

But they are engaged, a source tells Us Weekly!

"They tried to keep it very private and quiet," the source says of the couple, who met while filming Jamon, Jamon in 1992, and began dating in 2007.

A rep for Penelope Cruz had no comment, but the New York Daily News, which first reported the story, said Cruz wanted to wed Javier Bardem to appease her Catholic parents, given the persistent rumors that she's pregnant.

She recently denied she is pregnant with Bardem's child, however.

Are Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem engaged? It looks like they might be!

Cruz once said, not so very long ago, that she wasn't sure she wanted to marry at any point: "I don't know if I believe in marriage," she said in an interview with Psychology Today. "I believe in family, love and children."

"When I [have children], I want to do it well. I want it to be my best project in life."

Congratulations to the engaged couple, if the rumors are in fact true!

Last week's season premiere of The Hills elevated the contrived nonsense of MTV's cash cow to a new level with the injection of ample forced drama.

Specifically, someone dragged Kristin Cavallari out of the woodwork and told her to pretend she is interested in Justin Brescia, a.k.a. Justin-Bobby.

Shirtless Brody Jenner

This caused tension with Audrina Patridge, Justin's ex.

It was obviously all staged, yet it can't be denied that Justin-Bobby has at least some appeal to women. Audrina couldn't quit this loser, after all.

Some viewers of the "reality" show have even commented that Justin is "hot." We don't see it, but maybe we're in the minority (doubtful, but maybe).

Tell us, ladies, would you go there? Vote below ...

Justin-Bobby: Would you hit it?

An all-new episode of TV's most overhyped hottest show, Gossip Girl, airs tonight, and as you may have heard, Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff will be appearing.

All told, it could have been a lot worse, but also better. Here's the rundown on the episode a little early if you simply can't wait for this must-see CW event:

  • Hilary Duff, while much maligned by some of the show's ardent fans as a stunt casting move, can at least act. Tyra Banks? That's pure stunt casting.
  • Duff's character, Olivia, enrolls at NYU to live a normal college life. She's a movie star, which new love Dan (Penn Badgley) somehow doesn't know.
  • Banks' character, Ursula, is co-starring with Olivia in a movie premiering in New York. Serena (Blake Lively) gets a job as Ursula's new publicist.
  • Jenny (Taylor Momsen) does not want to rule high school with an iron fist. Blair (Leighton Meester) wishes she were back where she still could.

Check out some photos below and follow this link for more Gossip Girl spoilers!
