For a season finale, last night's installment of The Real Housewives of New York City didn't exactly leave us with any major cliffhangers.

As our Real Housewives correspondent explains below, even the hilarity of LuAnn singing wasn't enough to save one of the more boring episodes of the year. What did you think of it?

This season of The Real Housewives of New York City ended with a... thud.  It was alternately embarrassing (LuAnn singing) and nap-inducing (everything else).  Even the much hyped “Let’s Talk Out Our Issues” lunch between Bethenny and Jill turned out to be unremarkable.  Couldn’t one of them have slapped the other?  Couldn’t they have screamed obscenities at each other?  Or couldn’t they have flipped a table? 

Let’s bring Teresa in from the NJ Housewives to give these girls a lesson in how to make good reality TV inside restaurants.

Let’s talk a little bit more about this lunch.  I have to admit, I was hoping for a screaming fight and full-on Shutter Island-level insanity.  That didn’t happen.  Jill started out by explaining to us, “I want her to forgive me for holding a grudge and not letting it go soon enough.”  But Bethenny seemed wary:  “Jill and I were very close and she was definitely a big part of my life but this friendship has been shredded."

In an attempt to begin to win Bethenny back and to get us to want her to win Bethenny back, Jill says a lot of crap such as:
- “I feel like we were married and we’re like separated and I don’t want to be separated.”
- “I am sorry that when you reached out to me at Ramona’s because I wasn’t ready... I feel really bad about that.”
-“There’s no reason for her to cut me out.  There’s just no reason.  It all happened so fast.  But I am not putting this on her.  This was about me but I think she should forgive me.”

Bethenny is appropriately skeptical, as are we.  One of the tough things about reality TV stars becoming famous outside their show is that you know what’s happening in their current life while their shows are months behind.  For example, these last few episodes have all been right around Christmas of this past year.  We are watching in June.

We see Bethenny with the tiniest of baby bumps on television while simultaneously reading in Us Weekly (come on, you know you read it) that she had a baby girl with her husband Jason.  Her husband Jason who is her boyfriend Jason in this episode.  Their real lives and the “real lives” that the show portrays are so out of synch it’s dizzying.

Also, we know that Bethenny didn’t invite Jill to her wedding, so how reconciled can they be despite Jill supposedly reaching out to her for forgiveness?

Cameron Diaz may star in one of the biggest family movie franchises of all-time, but her interview in this month's British Vogue isn't meant for most Shrek viewers.

Asked how she remains so young and viral looking, the gorgeous actress replied:

"The fountain of youth [for me is]... exercise, healthy diet, lots of water, lots of laughter, lots of sex - yes, sex, we need that as human beings. It's healthy, it's natural, it's what we are here to do!"

We always knew we liked Cameron Diaz for a reason...

British Vogue

So, the star - who appears alongside Tom Cruise in this summer's Knight and Day - is getting her intercourse fill these days with Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, right?

Diaz wouldn't reveal much. Asked if she's in love, the actress just said: "You know what? Yes I am. I'm in love with life."

Fair enough. But if ARod, or life, doesn't provide Cameron with the sort of healthy, natural experience she desires, we have two words: Call us!

Ellen Ross, Jon Gosselin's newest girlfriend, supposedly hates kids. Nice. Way to date an overweight, unemployed guy who fathered eight of them then!

Guess that's the price you pay, though. Despite the fact that Ellen Ross "hates" children, a source tells Us that the 23-year-old "she wants to be famous."

This would be the primary appeal of dating Jon Gosselin, although even that's diminishing quickly. After the fourth or fifth girl it becomes less shocking.

In any case, she sounds like great stepmother material.

Ellen Ross sounds like great stepmother material.

When Ross was seen palling around with Gosselin's eight children on a playground May 22, another insider reports that it was simply a staged photo op.

"She knew it would get her attention," says the source.

Whoa. You mean guys with that kind of baggage aren't appealing unless celebrity gossip magazines and websites pay attention to you for dating them?

One person not pleased with Ross' photo stunt: Jon's ex Kate Gosselin, who is "freaking out" over it. That and everything else. But she's not pleased!

The Situation says his perfect girl could be “anyone.” When it comes to selecting a future wife (or trash bag for a typical Friday), he's an equal-opportunity guy.

DJ Pauly D (Paul Delvecchio) is little more selective than his buddy, however.

“She’s gotta take care of herself,” Delvecchio said Sunday before deejaying at Las Vegas’s Palms Casino Resort. “She’s gotta be, like, drop-dead gorgeous."

Well, yeah. But does recent, likely hookup Paris Hilton match that description?

"She’s gotta stand out in a crowd. She’s gotta take care of herself like I do.”

By "take care of herself," Pauly D presumably means provide for herself, but his perfect woman would adhere to the same GTL motto (gym, tan, laundry) as he does.

“A confident girl for Pauly D is what I need,” he says. “She’s gotta be beautiful.”

We're sensing some consistent themes here on Pauly D's list of criteria.

The second season of Jersey Shore began in Miami this spring. Pauly, Ronnie and The Situation shirtless are now back in the Garden State. The premiere is July 29.

What can viewers expect? “So much more everything,” Delvecchio says.

“More drama, fights, hookups, more everything. It was insane. I had the time of my life. I love Miami. We just killed it out there. You gotta be outside. The pool parties. The beach. The music. Nice tan. Good-looking people. That’s the ideal summer.”

You never know with Amy Winehouse. It's noteworthy to see her out and about, since it's always so entertaining and she no longer makes music, really.

Back to Black came out in 2006 and she's been working on the follow-up ever since. Problem is ... well, where do you start. Blake Fielder-Civil, for one.

The last time we heard from her, she fell over in a domestic incident and had to be hospitalized. Fortunately, she finally turned up at Jazz After Dark yesterday.

The troubled musician was singing, eating meatballs, drinking sangria and checking out the 30 paintings that she has commissioned from the owner.

That's about it. But it's par for the course for Wino ...

Josie Brooklyn Duggar, the youngest child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, has finally made it to the family's Arkansas home.

Her brief life has already required two hospitalizations, but "We're so happy that she's doing well," Michelle told People. "She's finally home, home, home."

Josie was born on December 10 at only 25 weeks, weighing 1 lb. 6 oz., after Michelle's life-threatening high blood pressure and emergency C-section.

Since then, Josie has battled for her life. She gained weight and was released on April 6, only to return only a few days later when her vital signs fell.

Doctors searched far and wide for a cause of her problems.

A giant family reunion awaits Josie Brooklyn Duggar.

"Her digestive issues have been linked to lactose intolerance," says Dr. Robert Arrington, co-director of the NICU at Arkansas Children's Hospital.

"We are all very happy that she is doing so well and fully expect her to continue to thrive. Today, as she's leaving, she looks like a full-term baby."

Now 7 lbs. 6 oz., Josie is at last ready to settle her into a schedule at their Little Rock rental home with her 18 siblings. Well, actually, only 17 of them.

Her oldest brother Josh, 22, lives with his wife and daughter, who's actually older than her aunt Josie. But they'll come visit for support, we would imagine.

Josie's emotional homecoming from the hospital will be featured on the premiere of 19 Kids and Counting. That's a lot of kids ... and a lot of love to share.

Leona Lewis has some serious bad luck.

Last year alone, she was headbutted by a horse and sucker punched by a fan. Then yesterday, she revealed that she recently fell down an elevator shaft. Really.

Leona Pic

The latest exercise in horrendously odd happenstance took place in Sheffield, England, last week, while Lewis was performing onstage. That can't have felt good.

Luckily, the Simon Cowell protege emerged unharmed in the incident, which occurred when the elevator she was in got stuck and she fell down the shaft.

Happens to the best of us, right?

Leona Lewis is a magnet for danger.

"We have been having problems with the lift," she explained. "It had been going fine in rehearsals and then I had a bit of an accident and fell down the lift shaft."

"It was quite scary.

"I was lucky not to get injured. Fortunately it happened during a blackout on set and didn't affect the show or the audience. I got a shock and had to be rescued."

"I had to just get back up and carry on," she said. And, presumably, be wary of any falling pianos ... Wile E. Coyote's security team had better step things up.

If Adam Lambert were to place an online personal ad, he clearly would not be seeking a SWF with whom he could go on long beach walks.

Instead, in an interview with Frontiers magazine, the singer makes it clear that he's interested in a SYPB. What does that stand for? By the end of this article, you should be able to figure it out...

On the pressure of being an openly gay musician: The thing I keep telling myself whenever the pressure starts looming is that I’ve been doing what I’ve always done, just on a larger scale now, so it’s not so bad! The opportunities that have come from American Idol are amazing.

On current musical influences: I love a lot of the electronica stuff from the UK - Ive been gravitating toward that lately. I had my moment when I was all about the classic rock years back, but lately it’s more about pop-electro stuff. I love Goldfrapp, La Roux. And all of the American pop divas, of course: Gaga, Christina, Madonna, Rihanna. I love all of them.

On the reception he's received: At first I didn’t know if the gay community was really into this or not, what I’m doing. And then slowly but surely I was traveling internationally and domestically and met a lot of gay men and women who were really excited about what’s going on with my record and what I’m doing, and it feels really nice for my community to acknowledge it.

Lambert was then asked if he'd rather sleep with Ryan Seacrest or Simon Cowell, a hilarious question. His response:

Ew. Neither one of them is my type at all. They’re both too old for me. I like pretty boys in their early-to-mid twenties. Make sure you print that.

We've done so, Adam. Single, Young, Pretty Boys, consider yourselves lucky!

As if 100 different shoes, a Barney's wardrobe, an $850 purse and eating only with chopsticks weren't ridiculous enough, Suri Cruise just got her very own iPad!

According to a hilarious report, Suri not only has one, she playsed with the thing while at dinner at Il Cantinori in NYC, too. These celebrity kids. Just no respect.

An eyewitness says Suri put her stuffed animals aside to use a drawing program on the expensive piece of equipment while Tom and Katie chatted with friends.

The Scientolospawn, who just turned four, played with the iPad for about 20 minutes before the family headed out of the restaurant just before midnight.

Definitely an appropriate bedtime for a toddler.

Stylish Suri

Suri Cruise ... so stylish and tech-savvy.

According to reports, iPads are sold out in many locations and the waiting list keeps growing for the new product, of which 2 million have been sold since April 3.

Good to see Suri is up on the trends. We just hope she gets Katie to show her how to sync the iPad up with her iPod, iTouch and iPhone ... can get a little tricky.

With the death of Rue McClanahan earlier today, Betty White is now the last of the Golden Girls. Losing her co-star this morning hit the octogenarian hard.

"Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasure our relationship," White said in a statement today. "It hurts more than I ever thought it would, if that's even possible."

Rue McClanahan passed away at age 76 after suffering a stroke, following the deaths of costars Bea Arthur last year at age 86 and Estelle Getty in 2008 at age 84.

Betty White, who has experienced an unexpected but wonderful career comeback of sorts lately at 88, was the eldest of the long-running NBC comedy's quartet.

Betty White, center, with the late Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur.

Golden Girls producer and writer Marc Cherry, known to younger generations for creating Desperate Housewives, also expressed grief over McClanahan passing:

"My favorite character to write for was Blanche Devereaux. In the hands of lesser actresses Blanche's vanity and sexual appetite would have been off-putting."

"But in Rue's brilliant hands, that character became one of the most beloved in the history of TV. Rue's kindness, generosity and talent will be sorely missed."
