If Mario Lopez has taught us anything, it's that a star athlete really can letter in every single high school sport - and that any random celebrity with an uninteresting life can sign a deal to star in their own reality show.

Following Mario's lead, Aubrey O'Day has lowered the bar even further!

The former Danity Kane lead singer and attention whore, who we last heard from in 2009, will star on her own show on Oxygen, The Aubrey O'Day Project.

According to Perez Hilton, the show will follow Aubrey as she desperately tries to find her way back into the music industry while "working with a dedicated team of industry professionals." By professionals, they likely mean porn producers.

The Aubrey O'Day Project: Must-see TV in the making.

Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior VP of Original Programming and Development over at Oxygen, has high hopes for this riveting new show, saying:

"Young women have watched the ups and downs of Aubrey through the years, and they continue to cheer her on." NOTE: They have? Really?

"We're excited to deliver her story as she battles issues that resonate, from self-doubt and body image to a desire for success and redemption."

So true. What young girl can't relate to a washed-up, trashy singer of an E-list pop group who gets naked at every opportunity just to stay relevant?

We take it back. Charice undergoing Botox treatment may not have been this week's Sign of the Apocalypse.

Instead, that dishonor falls to Kendall Jenner and her most recent set of modeling photos.

The 14-year old half-sister of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian signed a professional contract a year ago.

She posed for her first official shoot in January, bidding her childhood goodbye and wasting little time entering the world that has produced millions of dollars for her family, along with an equal number of critics who can't believe fans of these people actually exist.

As seen here, Kendall is doing her best impression of her older siblings, donning beachwear for photographer Nick Saglimbeni. Kim, naturally, sees nothing wrong with a 14-year old striking such poses.

"I am so proud of Kendall. She’s going to take over the modeling world... you just watch," Kim blogged last week. “She is truly an inspiration to all young girls out there... follow your dreams, work hard and your efforts will pay off.”

Right. Because Kendall clearly worked oh so very hard to accomplish this goal.

The youngin has made it clear she wants to emulate the careers of Kim and company - but don't get any ideas, Ray J. Put down that phone and put away that video camera. She's only 14 years old.

These shots of Kendall Jenner make the outfits worn by Miley Cyrus seem mature and appropriate by comparison.

Whether it was the producers' idea, him writing himself into his own screenplay or prompted by genuine emotions, Frank Neuschaefer's move last night was ballsy.

Dumping Ali Fedotowsky for his ex-girlfriend this late in the game? That stings. Far worse than the antics of Justin "Rated R" Rego, who was far more transparent.

Frank was awkward. He was sad. He confused the hell out of us. And he broke Ali's heart. Love it or hate it, this was the watershed moment of the season so far.

Oh yeah, and two guys were also there vying for her heart (and no one else's). THG breaks down Monday's penultimate episode of The Bachelorette below ...

Frank hasn't been frank with Ali all along.

It's really odd how much ABC gives away in previews, not just before the episode airs, but for what's "COMING UP" during the episode. Not everyone reads The Bachelorette spoilers, ABC. We certainly do, but not everyone. Minus 5.

Let's delve right into Frank. He's been obsessed with Ali all season, yet loved this Nicole Caruso girl so much that he chose her after one cheesy heart-to-heart, then flew all the way to Tahiti to break the news? This makes no sense, Minus 14.

Nicole says had no idea one person could complete another. Has she never seen Jerry Maguire? Eh, she looks like she's about 19, so maybe not. Anyway, Minus 3.

Ali is way cuter and seems a lot cooler than Nicole. Just saying. Plus 5.

Not sure if they just need to kill time and stretch this filler into a two-hour show, but the gratuitous Ali bikini shots are off the hook this week. We'll take it. Plus 7.

The majesty of Tahitian scenery soon gives way to despair, seeing as we do not make enough money from these Bachelorette reviews to ever go there. Minus 8.

Ooh, a helicopter ride! That's a new one, Bachelorette! Minus 4.

Ali wears sexy lingerie to dinner with Roberto Martinez. Someone is a little boy crazy ... not that we blame her. Despite sweating profusely, he's a hunk! Plus 9.

Why do they always say the fantasy suite card is from Chris Harrison? Just so we'll laugh and point it out here, while praising the venerable host-pimp? Plus 8.

Bachelorette Ali

Will Ali Fedotowsky choose Chris Lambton or Roberto Martinez?

Roberto has to be the frontrunner heading into the August 2 finale, given his obvious chemistry with Ali. Much of their date could be Cinemax material. Plus 5.

Wait, Chris' mom died? Did we miss that? Minus 6.

Chris' date with Ali involves cruising around on a giant boat, playing in the water and finding pearls in oysters. Cute, but too many obvious jokes missed. Wash.

At dinner on a private island, he sweetly confesses that he can see himself with Ali. Roberto is her infatuation, but Chris might be an even better pick. Plus 12.

Chris says that his mom is looking down smiling right now. Minus 5 for the overkill, and Minus 14 more for the image of his late mom looking down smiling at her first born about to put it to a hot girl also dating someone else on a reality show.

After arriving in Tahiti for reasons known, Frank reflects: "I'm confident in the decision I made, but to hurt Ali and potentially break her heart is going to be one of the hardest things I've ever had to do ... so I wanna talk to Chris Harrison." Plus 56.

Eventually, he "confesses" to Ali and she seems genuinely miserable. Minus 19, 'cause it's very possible Frank and Nicole "broke up" so he could go on the show, knowing full well he could play this card for dramatic effect. He's a writer, after all.

Minus 2 for the annoying way he says "Nicole," and Minus 6 for Ali saying she "gave up everything" to be here for approximately the 458th time this season.

They have the rose ceremony anyway, an unnecessary but nice reminder for Ali that the two remaining guys are light years better than Frank anyway. Plus 7.

TOTAL: +23. SEASON: +166.

Who should Ali Fedotowsky choose?

Hey, New Jersey residents, have you thanked Danielle Staub yet for putting your state on the map?

Hurry up and do so - and then read our Real Housewives correspondents' latest take on the antics of Danielle and company, courtesy of last night's episode...

Let me start out by saying that watching this show in HD is a scary experience.  My cable company finally upgraded Bravo to HD and while I was initially excited about this change, now I don’t know if this is a good thing, especially when Danielle is on the screen. 

You can see every smear of her pancake makeup, the shine reflecting off her artificially protruding cheekbones, and all the divots and pockmarks in her extremely freckled chest.  If I squint, I can almost see the puncture marks from the Botox injections she has had.  It’s the stuff of nightmares.

The Housewives Girl

At the beginning of the episode, Shirtless Joe takes the girls to a karate center.  (Side note:  Is it just me or does that middle daughter, Gabriella, look NOTHING like the other ones or her parents?  As the “Sesame Street” song says, one of these things is not like the others.  Just saying.) 

The girls are padded up for protection and then Shirtless Joe puts them in a circle and tries to get them to fight.  It’s sort of gross watching Shirtless watch his girls pound each other, knowing what guys think about girls fighting other girls.  “If you beat each other up I’m going to buy you a nice hot dog,” he tells them.  Let me remind everyone that one of these children is three years old. 

The girls proceed to fight using no karate principles or skills whatsoever.  “Don’t mess with my girls.  They’re tough cookies,” Teresa says. But aren’t they divas, too?  Can one be both a diva and a karate master?  This is a question for the ages.

Elsewhere, Danielle takes her tortured daughters to a self-defense lesson and, thrillingly, Discount Danny is there!  Let’s be honest:  He probably has no home so he just goes from one Danielle-focused activity to the next so he can be inside where it’s warm. 

Danny seems to think that he is going to be teaching the ladies how to effectively beat down a ho, particularly the kind of ho who will pull your weave out of your skull.  By “teaching” I mean that Danny stands in the corner in his Wal-Mart jeans watching the women with a creepy smile while professionals do the teaching.

Danielle in Training

To give Danielle something to visualize as she punches, it is decided that the instructor’s fists will be named “Teresa” and “Jacqueline."  Danielle punches with vigor and glee while her daughters look on.

Don’t you wonder what that older daughter is thinking?  The little one is probably still in the “I love my mommy” phase but the older one, Christine, has to realize her mom is bat-shit.  “God, you’re into this,” says Christine as she sees the hellfire in her mom’s eyes.  “It only takes one good smack to the head to make a person never walk again,” Danielle explains to us.  “I need to watch my back.”

Advice for Christine:  Choose an out-of-state college or, even better, an out-of-country college.  You can escape from your mom!

Fortunately for us, the boxing field trip is not the end of Discount Danny’s presence in the episode. We are treated to one more look at him when he meets Danielle at a coffee shop to talk about Ashley and The Night of the Pulled Weave.  Also in attendance is Danny’s nameless/voiceless sidekick.  Who exactly is that guy?  He’s shown up with Danny in a few episodes now and all he ever does is raise his eyebrows and nod his head.  He appears to know even less English than Shirtless Joe. 

Why on earth do these grown men care so much about Danielle and her endless fights?

A shocking new report suggests that Oksana Grigorieva agreed to a $15 million deal with Mel Gibson that would have kept their now-infamous tapes secret.

Even more shocking? That she ultimately left it on the table.

During child custody mediations in May, their lawyers worked out a financial deal for her to receive $15 million in child support, a house and other assets.

The two have an eight-month-old daughter, Lucia. Oksana promised something in return for the deal - all "evidence" in the case would remain confidential.

The "evidence" includes the Mel Gibson tapes, which Oksana's lawyers played parts of for Mel's lawyers. The n-word rant was not played at the mediation.

A source close to the matter tells TMZ: "The tapes loomed large ... the word 'tapes' was never used in the agreement, but it was central to the deal."

Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson both signed a "short form agreement," a bare-bones contract outlining the broad components the custody settlement.

The lawyers then drafted a long form agreement which contained specifics, but at that point she refused to sign the deal, claiming that she felt coerced.

Mel never paid Oksana under the deal, as the short contract didn't spell out the specifics of payment and Oksana refused to sign the longer one that did.

Meanwhile, some of Grigorieva's text messages to Gibson have surfaced that could make their secretly-recorded conversations inadmissible in court.

Oksana clearly recorded the conversations without Mel's knowledge, and if a person isn't told the conversation is being recorded, it's not admissible.

Of course, if she feared for her safety and believed the call related to the commission of a felony (and he did threaten to kill her), it's a legal gray area.

However, reports say she sent Mel several text messages in which she states she recorded the phone calls because Mel didn't keep his part of the deal.

Mel's lawyers will likely use Oksana's texts to prove she was after money. Her side counters that if she were after money, she would have just signed.

What do you think?

Mike Sorrentino is taking control of the situation. Pun ... intended!

Perhaps the best known member of the Jersey Shore cast has signed a deal for a third season. Now his goal is to get the rest of his raise-seeking crew on board.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, all eight of the principal stars were close to signing new contracts today after initially asking for $30,000 per episode.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and the rest of their partners in crime made $5,000 an episode in Season 1 and $10,000 per for Season 2.

Considering the first season was only nine episodes, that really wasn't that much. Season 2 will feature a robust 24 episodes, giving the cast a big raise.

Yet they wanted more still, and it looks like they'll get it.

No word if The Sitch's contract has a steroids clause. As in he must use them.

MTV released the following statement: "We don't comment on any contractual conversations. Season 2 premieres July 29 and production is on schedule."

Rest assured, The Situation is already ahead of schedule. Rumor has it he was offered a one-time $60,000-$180,000 bonus to sign on for Season 3 and 4.

The network supposedly thinks The Situation, Snooki, and Pauly D are the only three non-expendable stars, but hopefully the gang will remain intact.

"Mike has been packed and ready to go for days for Jersey Shore 3 and is excited to move forward with the shooting," his manager said in a statement.

"After hearing there was a rumored strike, Mike decided in order to get Season 3 done, he was going to have to lead the pack and wants to encourage the rest of his cast to follow his lead and return for another amazing season of Jersey Shore."

"Mike is confident the rest of the cast will rally around him as they have in the past. The Situation has always been respected and well-liked by the entire cast. He felt that he could break the stalemate by putting these rumors to rest."

Ever-altruistic, and always a leader.

What happened to that stuff about moving home to Florida?

Looks like Vienna Girardi isn't missing Jake Pavelka very much, nor does she have any intention of laying low or letting her 15 minutes of fame expire.

A Double Life

Last weekend, The Bachelor star headed to the Sin City with her friends to celebrate her single status after her sham engagement to Jake unraveled.

Vienna hosted a Single & Fabulous party Saturday at Tao Beach, where she even tossed out Team Vienna tank tops and offered shots to partygoers.

Hopefully she kept the drunken crying to a minimum.

SINGLE AND FABULOUS: Well, at least the first part.

Interestingly, her crew that night included Jesse Csincsak, who Deanna Pappas picked a few seasons ago on The Bachelorette and broke up with soon after.

"He was just giving her advice," a source says.

Dude certainly knows what she's going through, although only one of them can be frequently seen in MySpace pics wearing next to nothing on Spring Break.

Later that night, Vienna and her posse continued partying over at Lavo, where she kindly offered free shots to all of the bachelorettes in the house.

No word if she has been in contact with Lee Smith, the ex-boyfriend who says he was putting it to her while she was still engaged to Jake Pavelka.

Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood both have some great hair.

Both stars recently made a French connection of sorts, with plaiting just at the hairline to keep their waves beachy. It's a look that works best on both Jessica, who recently started dating Eric Johnson, and Carrie, who just married Mike Fisher.

Which Tony Romo ex-girlfriend looked best, though? Vote below!

Jess vs. Carrie

Who has better hair?

Famed defense attorney Robert Shapiro took on Lindsay Lohan's case last week on the condition that she follows the judge's orders and reports to jail.

He seemed like just what she needed, but shockingly, Shapiro stepped away Monday for unknown reasons after meeting with Judge Marsha Revel.

The troubled star, who is said to be living in denial, is due to be formally sentenced this morning in court for violating the terms of her DUI probation.

At least she seems in relatively good spirits.

"The only 'bookings' that i'm familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that I'd be 'booking' into Jail... eeeks," Lindsay wrote on her Twitter page.

Former girlfriend Samantha Ronson, who has supported Lohan through her ordeal, Tweeted back, "well - you haven't lost your sense of humour."

Lindsay Lohan: Sad

Barring a miracle, Lindsay Lohan is headed to jail today.

It is not immediately clear who will be representing Lohan at the Tuesday morning hearing in Beverly Hills Superior Court where she is ordered to surrender.

Although he has been assisting her, Shapiro never formally became her attorney and was expected to take that title after meeting with Judge Revel Monday.

Technically, her lawyer is Shawn Chapman Holley, who parted ways with Lohan after the star's last hearing but never signed the papers removing herself.

Revel would have had to replace Holley with Robert Shapiro as attorney of record. This was thought to be a mere formality, but it never actually took place.

Lohan was given 90 days in jail for violating probation terms from her 2007 DUI conviction, but likely will serve only a fraction of that due to overcrowding.

She had (thankfully) entered a sober living facility with ties to Shapiro last week, but then her assistant was seen removing her belongings earlier Monday.

Stay tuned ...
