Some highly-respected, hilarious, attractive celebrity gossip websites aren't sure if Ellen DeGeneres is the best choice for an American Idol judge.

But last year's new addition to the show, Kara DioGuardi, is not among the skeptics. She had nothing but glowing praise for Ellen when asked about her at an Emmy Award after-party.

"I think it's a genius decision," DioGuardi told People. "I wish I had thought of it... I would say she would probably be somebody who would be fair in her criticism and will try to be as supportive as she possibly could. I think it's going to be a lot of fun."

As for Ellen, she's aware of the criticism her selection has been met with. Regarding the type of judge she'll be, DeGeneres said:

"I will be kind. I will be compassionate. I will be empathetic, and I will be truthful. I will be an honest judge without being mean."

We'll find out in January what that translates into. For now, be sure to listen to the first single from last year's winner, Kris Allen!

In doing the media rounds for her new movie Love Happens, Jennifer Aniston has said she still believes in love and that she will one day find "The One."

That hasn't stopped celebrity gossip publications from tripping over one another to report that she's a lonely, pathetic, desperate middle-aged hag, though.

Last night, The Soup suggested Us, In Touch, Star and Life & Style join forces to create a new magazine, Jennifer Aniston is Going to Die Alone Weekly.

Who wouldn't want 52 issues a year jam packed with made-up sources talking about an obviously fat and crying woman plotting revenge on Angelina ...

If you call 1-800-55-LOSER now, you will even get a bonus subscription to Jessica Simpson Looks Fat Weekly. That's over 5,000 pages per year of unflattering Jessica Simpson pictures at over 80 percent off the cover price!

What a steal.

Kate Gosselin, who shot to fame as the mother of eight children and the grating wife of Jon Gosselin on Jon & Kate Plus 8, is mulling her next career move.

And that just might be a talk show.

"I've been given the gift of gab, so why not use it?" Gosselin, 34, told an audience at the Southern Women's Show in Charlotte, where she was on Friday.

It's true, she does have a gift of being opinionated, abrasive and confrontational. Kate seemed to fit in on The View, even if she was slammed by Whoopi.

She might want to go back to the new hair, though. Why she opted to return to the reverse-mullet / dead opossum weave so soon is a mystery to us.

In addition to answering these critical questions about her new professional plans, Kate Gosselin told the North Carolina crowd of about 700 that:

  • Other than reviewing episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 before they air, she rarely watches any television, and prefers reading to her children.
  • The family's house may be neat as a pin, but her private space is a different matter. "My bedroom and my closet ... it's a dumping ground."
  • She's thinking about writing a book about the drama in her life. Nothing like lamenting and trying to cash in on celebrity gossip attention.
  • In response to a woman identifying with her after a recent breakup, Gosselin answered: "I don't think you want to talk to me about that."

At least she got that one right. Fortunately for Kate, there were no comments from the audience about Stephanie Santoro or Hailey Glassman.

The moron arrested for recently ransacking Lindsay Lohan's house may not have been a total stranger to the train wreck actress, according to reports.

Several people who worked with her on Labor Pains, filmed last year, say they actually saw Nicholas Prugo hanging out on the set with Lindsay Lohan.

One person estimates she saw them together "at least 10 times."

Nicholas Prugo, 18, was arrested for cocaine possession in February. He was placed in a drug rehab program. He was also arrested last month for DUI.

Whether Prugo had been to Lohan's house prior to the break-in is not known. Nor is his possible connection to the similar robbery of Audrina Patridge.

  • Partied Out
  • Nicholas Prugo Mug Shot

Lindsay Lohan and Nicholas Prugo may have at least been acquaintances.

Nicholas' father is Frank Prugo, former vice president of First Look Studios, the organization responsible for releasing the celluloid disaster that is Labor Pains.

The movie was released in May, while her home was robbed August when she was New York. The timeline for Nick's involvement would seem to make sense.

Frank Prugo no longer works with the studio, but the few degrees of separation is hard to ignore, and could explain Nick getting a job on the movie's set.

Either way, we're sure Lindsay is taking it all in stride. She's admitted that she brings these things upon herself to a point - and loves the publicity anyway.

Through two weeks, fewer people have watched the new Melrose Place than believe Khloe Kardashian will actually marry Lamar Odom this Sunday.

But The CW hopes all that will change on November 17. That's the date on which Heather Locklear will reprise her beloved role as Amanda Woodward.

Heather Locklear Movie Premiere Pic

“We’re ecstatic to have the chance to bring Amanda Woodward back to Melrose Place,” executive producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer said. "Heather’s involvement in the show is something we’ve been working on for some time as we couldn’t imagine creating and producing this show without the iconic character’s inclusion."

The new version of Melrose Place is yet to garner even two million viewers for an episode.

Locklear, however, helped the original drama stay on the air for seven years, following her addition to the cast at the conclusion of its first season.

She joins former co-stars Laura Leighton, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bisset and Daphne Zuniga on the rebooted CW series. Will you tune in for her return?

The late Anna Nicole Smith had 11 different medications in her hotel room when she died, all prescribed by one doctor, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Court documents reveal that a Valley Village, Calif., pharmacist refused to fill an order for six potent substances faxed by Anna Nicole Smith's psychiatrist.

Playboy Bunny

"Pharmaceutical suicide," the pharmacist called it. "They're going to kill her with this," the unidentified specialist said, per the investigation into her death.

Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, whose name was on all 11 meds, had written prescriptions for two sedatives, 300 tablets of methadone, a muscle relaxer, an anti-inflammatory drug and four bottles of a painkiller nicknamed "hospital heroin."

She has since been indicted along with another doctor and Smith's companion Howard K. Stern for allegedly furnishing the late Playboy model with drugs.

The D.A. has singled out Stern as Smith's principal enabler.

The investigation into the death of Anna Nicole Smith (1967-2007) is still ongoing.

The order had come in days after Smith's 20-year-old son, Daniel, died. The pharmacist called Smith's internist to say he had no intention of filling them.

Objections from two other pharmacists were also noted by the investigators, who have found evidence indicating that Eroshevich and fellow suspect Dr. Sandeep Kapoor both engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with Smith.

That's just beyond strange.

A preliminary hearing in the case, which has been investigated for over two years and eerily similar to the death of Michael Jackson, is set for next month.

Larry Birkhead, pimp and father to Smith's adorable daughter Dannielynn, is among those close to Anna Nicole who are on the prosecution's witness list.

By now we all know the facts. Former presidential candidate John Edwards was caught two-timing his wife of 30 years, Elizabeth, with Rielle Hunter.

There are rumors he also fathered the daughter of the weird videographer. He has adamantly denied this up until now, but his word means nothing.

Rielle Hunter Baby: Frances Quinn Hunter

Given that he's a proven liar, and every piece of circumstantial aligns perfectly, the assumption is that Edwards is the father of Frances Quinn Hunter.

But is an official admission of paternity finally imminent?

According to the New York Times, the disgraced former U.S. Senator from North Carolina may be on the verge of acknowledging what we all know.

Not because he's a good guy or anything - he's effectively being forced to. His former aide Andrew Young, who first claimed to have knocked up Rielle Hunter to cover his boss' a$$, is preparing to publish a book filled with revelations.

Young, who once signed an affidavit stating Frances was his daughter, only to later rescind the claim, testified before a grand jury investigating the use of Edwards' campaign funds. It is theorized that he came clean under oath.

John and Elizabeth Edwards remain married, although how close they are these days is debatable. Among the bombshells reported by the Times:

  • Andrew Young says Edwards pleaded with him to claim paternity of Rielle Hunter's daughter in an attempt to "make the scandal go away."
  • Edwards told Rielle he would marry her after Elizabeth died at a rooftop ceremony at an NYC hotel with the Dave Matthews Band performing.
  • Young claims that he set up meetings between Hunter and Edwards over the course of a year so they could keep their relationship a secret.
  • That Hunter's daughter's middle name, Quinn (similar to the Latin prefix for five) was chosen because the girl is John Edwards' fifth child.

So when's he going to admit it, if at all? Wade Smith, a Raleigh lawyer who represents Edwards, issued a statement about the paternity rumors:

"There may be a statement on that subject at some point, but there is no timetable and we will see how we feel about it as events unfold."

Elizabeth Edwards said on CNN this summer that she hoped any DNA test and results would be private, "for the sake of this child ... in a quiet way."

In late June, Stephen Moyer referred to Robert Pattinson as a pussy, earning the wrath of Twlight Saga followers everywhere.

Granted, the True Blood star was mostly kidding - but, come on, he should know better than to mess with such a rabid fan base.

On Sunday night, following the 2009 Emmy Awards, Moyer acknowledged that Twilight was "great" and told E! News:

"I think they serve a certain audience and we serve a certain demographic, so we can all exist happily together."

As Edward

Of course, anyone that watches True Blood knows what Moyer meant when he also called Pattinson the "Diet Coke" of vampires earlier this summer.

That HBO series features buckets of blood and gore each episode, along with numerous orgies and nudity. Twilight, conversely, focused on shimmering skin.

But that may soon change. There's talk that Eclipse will be quite hot and very heavy, with fans buzzing over "hot Robsten sex" rumors. That's true both on screen and off screen, of course.

Who would you prefer to take a bite out of you?

After her beloved dog Daisy became a coyote's dinner last week, Jessica Simpson may have hit the lowest point of her life, her friends fear.

"Daisy was her baby," one of them said. "It's going to put her into an absolute tailspin. It will put her into the worst place ever."

Worst. Place. Ever. Not that we're being overdramatic at all.

But another source close to the alleged singer and actress says she's having a hard time but is coping better than her friends may realize.

"She's really upset, but not spiraling out of control by any means," a source says. "She'll get through it but it's like losing a family member."

Daisy was snatched by a coyote before Simpson's very eyes in L.A. last week, and despite her efforts, no sign has been seen of the maltipoo.

"She won't leave her parents' house," a source says. "Whenever things went wrong, she reached for Daisy. Daisy was her security blanket."

On September 19, stylist pal Ken Paves convinced Simpson to finally leave her house. They went to Vino in Encino, Calif., to perk her up.

Needy

Jessica Simpson needs a reality check. And a new hairstyle.

"Jessica seemed okay, but wasn't smiling," an onlooker says. "Wine made her relax a bit, but it was obvious she was having an awful week."

"Jessica has a very small inner circle," the friend said. "But she always had Daisy. Daisy gave her the unconditional love she needed."

Unlike some of the men in her life, "Daisy never betrayed her. Daisy was always there for her. This is serious. Jessica’s heart is broken."

Whenever she was out at night, Jessica Simpson called home and had "someone put Daisy on the phone so she could say goodnight."

"Daisy ran the house," the friend said. "If Daisy didn’t like you, you were gone."

When Jessica Simpson was having relationship problems, the friend said "she would cry herself to sleep at night, using Daisy as a pillow."

We're not sure if this is all sweet or lonely and pathetic.

Either way, Daisy filled a void because "Jessica is very needy. She is very clingy. She is so sweet, but sometimes she's hard to be around."

"It's not always easy. She hates to be alone. That's what happened with Tony. Jessica smothers people. She doesn't really have hobbies."

Most people probably didn't find funny former President Jimmy Carter's assertion that criticism of President Barack Obama's health care plan is rooted in racism.

But the President himself can see the humor in it.

Asked about the comment on The Late Show with David Letterman, Obama quipped, "I think it's important to realize that I was actually black before the election."

Letterman deadpanned, "Really. Tell us, how long have you been a black man?"

Obama's visit made him the first sitting president to appear on Letterman's show. He personally had been a guest on Letterman's show five times before, however.

Early joking aside, the President's interview last night turned serious when Letterman asked questions about, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the state of the economy.

On the economy, Barack Obama offered a sober prediction as the country deals with 9.7 percent unemployment, the worst level since 1983. He said he expects unemployment will be a "big problem" for at least another year.

But Obama told Letterman the economy will rebound even stronger.

As for Afghanistan, Obama knows some people want him to bring troops home, and others are calling for him to increase U.S. force levels to fight the insurgency.

Obama said he won't make a decision on sending in more troops, though, until he completes a comprehensive review of the war effort and settles on his strategy.

"I'm going to be asking some very hard questions," Obama said.

Follow the jump for two clips from Obama's apperance on Letterman, a portion of his interview and the show's Top 10 list (of reasons he agreed to show up) ...
