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.

The hate-filled crazies are back.

In July, at an Adam Lambert concert in San Jose, a group of protestors rallied outside and chanted about the singer's homosexuality. It was a pathetic display of close-minded bigotry.

Now, in the same city, the awful human beings have returned. This time, their target is Miley Cyrus.

Presumably because the singer wears revealing clothing, one man actually taunted a bevy of Miley's fans and screamed: Ask your parents where you're going when you die. Miley is going to Hell when she dies.

We wish we were kidding. See for yourself:

The Hollywood Gossip has made no secret of our disdain for Miley. She can be an incredibly self-centered, obnoxious individual.

But we don't wish any harm on the young celebrity. We certainly don't want her to rot in the fiery pits of Hell for all of eternity. That's just cruel.

As for the man above, however? We would pay to see him banished to a lifetime of watching Cyrus whine about her gigantic closet on an endless loop.

What do you think would be an apt punishment for this mean-spirited individual?

DeAnna Pappas wishes nothing but the best for The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris, who recently moved to Chicago to live with fiance Ed Swiderski.

She's just not sure it's gonna work out.

Ali Fedotowsky, Roberto Martinez

"I do hope it works out for them; the odds are against them," DeAnna told Us Weekly, though she did add that the couple is doing better than ever.

"Supposedly Jillan and Ed are still together, and head over heels in love. I haven't hung out with them, but we have mutual friends, and they say they are crazy about each other," Jillian's Bachelorette predecessor added.

"It seems to be working so far."

It was a difficult summer for Jillian and Ed, thanks to rumors that he slept with Lindsey Johnson a week after proposing to her on the reality show.

Another woman, Bethany Steffen, says he tried to get in her pants a week later. DeAnna Pappas' take? She wasn't that surprised by the report.

DeAnna Pappas, who famously chose the wrong guy on The Bachelorette finale, won't say if Ed was the wrong pick for Jillian. But she wasn't a big fan of Swiderski.

"I wasn't an Ed fan while [Jillian Harris] was filming the show," she said. "I think some people go on [The Bachelorette] with different intentions."

"Maybe they are not open in the beginning what their intentions are," she told Us Weekly, without elaborating. "So in the end, you get duped."

Another controversial reality couple from The Bachelor franchise's recent history, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, also still on, Pappas reports.

"They are so happy, and I do think that they are going to get married," she said of the two. "They really just get each other, it works for them."

Will Jillian and Ed last?

As recently as last week, Khole Kardashian and Lamar Odom were "talking about rings."

A couple days later, the pair were tying the knot "within two weeks," according to sources.

Now, the latest report indicates that the couple - which has been dating for approximately 27 minutes - is headed to the altar this weekend!

Khloe and Lamar

According to E! News, most guests have already received a phone call, inviting them to a wedding on Sunday; formal invites will reportedly arrive later this week. (The Hollywood Gossip will check its inbox frequently!)

Asked about the nuptials, Khloe - well-trained in the art of public relations - kept fans guessing. She simply said: "I cannot confirm or deny…"

Neither can our staff, but we can at least speculate. There are only one of two possibilities here:

  1. Khloe is pregnant and rushing to get married before her baby bump grows;
  2. This is all a publicity ploy.

What do you think? Will the wedding actually take place?

We've got a double dose of American Idol talent and cuteness below.

First, David Archuleta performed "Contigo En La Distancia" at Friday night's ALMA Awards.

The former runner-up will release a Christmas album in October, as his career might be taking awhile to launch, but we still have little doubt it will be a massive success.

Said Archie of his performance: “It was my first performance on an awards ceremony, and my first time performing on TV in Spanish! I have to say I was pretty stinkin’ nervous... I’m definitely planning on doing more in Spanish, and I hope this will allow more opportunities."

Meanwhile, season eight champion Kris Allen is yet to title his debut CD, but he has announced its release date: November 17.
