The anniversary of Michael Jackson's tragic death is right around the corner, and for $150 a ticket, you can pay tribute to him at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Just one problem: The event is not sanctioned by his estate.

Paris Jackson Birth Certificate

"Forever Michael" is being thrown, allegedly, by The Jackson Family Foundation and Sounds official, right? Especially with Joe and Katherine Jackson in attendance, along with MJ's children Paris, Prince and Blanket? How awesome.

Except for the fact that Katherine and Jackson's kids won't even be in town on the day of the event, let alone on hand. So ... what the heck is going on here?

Michael Jackson passed away last June 25.

According to the VoicePlate site, "A portion of the proceeds for this event will be presented to some of Michael Jackson's favorite charities at the event."

As for what portion goes to charity and where the rest goes ... founder Joseph Fahmy wouldn't say, although he did say he just hopes to break even.

It's all news to the Michael Jackson estate. Howard Weitzman, its lawyer, says "No one contacted the Estate to see whether or not they would approve, participate in, or allow the use of Michael's name, likeness, image or intellectual property."

That doesn't sound good. Sounds like someone's trying to take advantage of the icon. MJ fans may have a new target instead of Jason Pfeiffer.

A little over a year after being dumped by Jason Mesnick on the "After the Final Rose" special, Melissa Rycroft is heading back to The Bachelor mansion.

Not to find love this time - she's happily married to Tye Strickland, in fact - but to co-host Bachelor Pad, ABC's new spin-off featuring past contestants.

We kid not, this is a real show.

Joining Melissa Rycroft for co-MC'ing duties will be a man who needs no introduction, venerable Bachelor and Bachelorette host-pimp Chris Harrison.

“I’m excited.” Rycroft says. “It’s fun. It’s a brand new experience for me. I’ve never been on that side but I’m anxious. I’m excited and ready to start.”

The gorgeous Melissa Rycroft made the finals of Dancing with the Stars and has been a correspondent for Good Morning America since her Bachelor appearance.

The show, which has already started filming, will feature an all-star reunion of “some of the most unforgettable contestants and suitors,” says ABC.

Two words, ABC: Wes. Hayden. Make it happen.

The gang will live together in the mansion as they compete in a series of challenges and dates for a chance at winning $250,000 and perhaps more.

Could another shot at love await any of these hotties? ABC couldn't care less, as long as it has a Bachelor franchise installment for every season now.

Works for us! We heart Melissa! On a related note, check out THG's recap of The Bachelorette for a humorous take on Monday night's debauchery.

Kanye West turns 33 years old today. Happy birthday, man!

The acclaimed rapper is best known for the following things:

  • A uniquely evolving hip-hop style and lyrical mastery unmatched by other artists in his genre, winning widespread praise from critics and fans alike
  • Being an egomaniac hothead capable of flying off the handle at any moment, a pattern culminating in his hijacking Taylor Swift at the MTV VMAs
  • Pounding the crap out of the CAPS LOCK key
  • Dating Alexis Phifer and Amber Rose

Through it all, Kanye's always been a unique personality and performer - one whose next outrageous comments and amazing beats are always eagerly awaited.

West is and hopefully will continue to be one of our favorite entertainers both on and off the hip-hop stage. As a birthday tribute, click to enlarge more photos ...

While most of our staff is sitting in stunned silence over the alleged existence of yet another Danielle Staub sex tape, thank goodness for our Real Housewives critic.

She sat through another hilarious, entertaining, nauseating episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey last night and filed the following report...

Let me just start out by saying that the entire focus of this episode was women trying to get other women out of their lives while simultaneously talking, thinking, texting, Facebooking, and scheming endlessly about these same women.  Danielle wants the Manzo ladies out of her life for good.  The Manzo ladies want Danielle out of their lives for good.  Hmmm... normally you would think that this could work out well for all of them pretty easily. 

Just stop talking to each other, right?  No, it’s not that easy when you are a New Jersey housewife.  You must first make the woman/women you hate the center of your life and the focus of your every waking moment before you can finally expel them for good. D'uh!

The Housewives Girl

But before we delve into all of that, let’s start out where the episode started out:  Teresa and daughter Gia at Gia’s modeling and acting school.  Teresa drives Gia to her acting class in the family’s Maserati. As I see this I am immediately reminded of reading a headline this week that Teresa and her hubby, Shirtless Joe, are millions of dollars in debt and that several of their many homes are in danger of being repossessed by the bank.  

Teresa, I would encourage you to enjoy that Maserati and your new Palace of Marble and Onyx while you still can.  Soon you’ll be living in a dilapidated ranch with minimal square footage and it will become all too apparent how annoying your daughters are when you can’t hide from them in your pool house

Teresa makes nice with the other parents in the waiting room of Gia’s acting and modeling school. She relishes the opportunity to shoot the shit with people in the biz.  “It’s typical for me to speak to other parents whose children are also models and actors.  It’s refreshing to be around people who can relate to you,” says Teresa of these people who are all giving her the snake eye every time she opens her trap.  She also reminds us and them, “I’m so not a stage mom.”  One dad cringes.  We cringe along with him.

Gia wants a part in a new Christian Slater movie but it doesn’t work out.  We learn that her Jersey accent is preventing her from getting the parts she so desires.  Well, that and her total inability to act or memorize lines - but I digress.  Teresa is dumbfounded by all this hoo-ha.

“I really don’t know what a New Jersey accent is because I was born here and raised so to me I don’t feel like I have a Jersey accent.”  My gawd - has this woman nehvuh been outta Joisey?  A dialect coach is brought in to help de-Jersey Gia’s speech.  Much time is devoted trying to get Gia to stop pronouncing the word “coffee” as “quaw-fee” without much success.  All the other words in the English language (oh, besides “dog” verses “dwog”) are left for later as her coach slumps over in exhaustion and Teresa and Gia leave. 

Teresa and Daughter

Evidently it is Danielle’s birthday and our favorite nutjob is having her “first grown-up party.”   This statement is not clarified and no one knows what it means exactly but things move forward despite this confusion.  That two-faced minx Kim G. is hosting a party for Danielle and the two women exchange words before the party. 

Kim G. is upset over how things went down at the Brownstone during the cancer benefit.  Danielle refuses to make any apologies.  The people doing their hair and makeup raise their eyebrows and exchange looks of thinly veiled terror.  You know they are scanning for the closest exits to flee through in case these women start going at each other with their claws and fangs extended.

Once the party starts the conversation predictably turns to the Manzos and Danielle asks her guests, “Do you know how much satisfaction they’re going to get out of knowing that on my birthday party that this is what’s happening?”  But when a person tells Danielle she cares too much about the Manzos she gets hissy and sticks up her finger and says, “Oh no, no, no.  I do not care about them.  What I don’t care to hear about is them on my birthday.”

Ali Fedotowsky continued to narrow the field on The Bachelorette last night, with 11 roses doled out and three dudes sent packing. It was mostly predictable stuff.

Justin Rego, a.k.a. Rated R, was anything but, however. He's getting railroaded a la Vienna Girardi and/or he's just a deceitful pig, depending on who you ask.

Either way, this guy is quickly becoming one of the best Bachelor villains in years. When Rated R draws Vienna comparisons from Ali herself, we're speechless.

According to The Bachelorette spoilers, he's not only there "for the wrong reasons," but was dating two other women, making his tearful BS all the more awesome.

THG breaks down all the action below in its plus-minus index ...

Cue obligatory helicopter ride and bring-them-closer-through-adversity stunt: Ali and Roberto must walk a tightrope, literally, to reach their dinner date. Minus 5.

Not even that cliched cheesiness can dampen the appeal of Roberto Martinez, however. He's hot, speaks like 31 languages and played pro baseball. Gulp. Plus 12.

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez

RIDE OF HER LIFE: Will Roberto Martinez take Ali on just that?

Roberto asks Ali Fedotowsky if she knows how cute she is. Barf, but Plus 2.

On the group date, the guys film a music video for Barenaked Ladies. We're fans, but Minus 6 because ABC is really scraping the bottom cross-promotional stuff.

Each guy gets a scene with Ali and the true colors come out. Jonathan crumbles under pressure, Kirk pretty much mauls her and Frank gets mad jealous. Plus 3.

Kirk gets the rose, but weatherman makes the video. Minus 4.

Chris Lambton talks about the tattoo across his heart, which is his late mom's signature. A little weird, but a sweet sentiment from an overall cool guy, so Plus 9.

The video shoot, while supremely lame, provided us with gratuitous Ali bikini, tub, pool and lingerie action, a point that mustn't be overlooked (see gallery). Plus 10.

  • Ali in Bed
  • Getting Rubbed Down
  • In the Swimming Pool
  • Flirting with Fedotowsky
  • Beach Babe Ali
  • Ali Fedotowsky in Lingerie

SEX APPEAL: The Bachelorette cranks it up to 11. Or at least like 7.5.

Now for the highlight of the night: Miffed by his lack of alone time with Ali, Rated R hobbles two miles on crutches to her place. Supposedly. We doubt it. Minus 9.

You have to give the producers credit for orchestrating that, though. Him limping up during Ali's talking head and her feigning surprise is worth a Plus 8 in itself.

Plus 13 more for Rated R's sob story about his absentee dad and his pleas for the guys to accept him, even after he blatantly (and happily) d!cked over Hunter.

Speaking of Hunter, his date went nowhere due to his utter lack of game. No rose for you. Minus only 2, because while a waste of time, Ali got the message.

Running out of time, Steve sets up a picnic, but can't open the champagne. Ali wonders why his hand doesn't work; Steve says it's numb. Why, Steve?! Minus 5.

Chris L. and Ali bond over flip cup. He's totally winning. Plus 3.

Ali inadvertently outs Justin Rego to Roberto, who narcs on him to the guys, and all hell breaks loose. But they're just pissed they didn't think of it, so Wash.

TOTAL: +29. SEASON: +50.

Roses: Kirk and Roberto (earlier); Chris L., Jesse, Chris N., Ty, Kasey, Craig, Frank, Jonathan and ... Justin. After all that, Rated R lives to fight another week!

Out: Hunter (earlier); John and Steve.

We already know that the past of Danielle Staub is littered with drugs, prostitution and arrest records.

But might it also be filled with multiple sex tapes?!?

In June 2009, this Real Housewife of New Jersey successfully used the legal system to block a video of her and ex-boyfriend Steve Zalewski getting it on. Raunchy case closed, right?

Apparently not.

A Real Housewife of NJ

TMZ reports that Hustler Inc. has uncovered another 75-minute tape of the Garden State's most reviled reality star spreading her legs for mystery man. It was allegedly shot in September, months after the aforementioned case was settled.

It won't be long until we have confirmation of this tape's existence: it's scheduled to be released on June 14. That's in less than a week!

Speaking of Staub, Zalewski once said: "Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught.

"She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms every time we went out - she'd get excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!'"

Soon, they may be seeing Danielle doing it inside. Yuck!

Charlie Sheen allegedly held a knife to the throat of his wife last year.

Yet it's the public that has so far been punished for this act.

We've been forced to continually hear about this star, including the hefty raise he received from CBS to resign with Two and a Half Men.

The drama was scheduled to end yesterday, as Sheen appeared in court and all reports indicated he has reached a plea deal that would send him to jail for 30 days - but the agreement "hit a snag," sources say, and Sheen's sentencing has been pushed back until July 12.

"The prosecution discovered that Sheen does not qualify for work release because he is not a local resident. He does qualify for useful public service, which has stricter rules, which Sheen nixed," said an insider.

As pictured, Sheen appeared court in sunglasses, a dark suit and tie.

When TMZ asked if he was content with the plea bargain, he said: "I guess. "As [happy] as I can be."

We have an idea for the prosecution: instead of any jail time, Sheen should be forced to watch reruns of his abysmal sitcom on an endless loop for a month. That will scare him straight.

Sorry, guys worldwide. Gemma Arterton is now a married woman.

The Prince of Persia star swapped vows with Italian love Stefano Catelli in a picturesque hilltop ceremony in the Spanish village of Zuheros, Britain's Daily Mail says.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

Catelli proposed last summer and they made it official Sunday.

The 24-year-old said she knew he was the one immediately, writing in her journal the night after they met that she had met the man she was going to marry.

Gemma Arterton is now Mrs. Stefano Catelli!

"I gave that diary entry to him for his birthday two weeks later," Arterton, who also got Daniel Craig hot and bothered in Quantum of Solace, told InStyle.

"But it didn't freak him out, because he was thinking the same thing. I just really want to spend the rest of my life with him. He's just an amazing man."

Amazingly lucky, too. Congratulations to the newlyweds - and scroll through some Gemma Arterton pictures for good measure. They're pretty.
