One Brit is out and another is in.

With Simon Cowell out of the American Idol fold, former producer Nigel Lythgoe - who left this post in 2008 - has returned to the show he helped make famous. He released the following statement today:

"Working as executive producer on American Idol for its first seven years not only was an inspirational journey into the heart of American pop culture, it opened my eyes to the untapped potential of the incredibly dynamic young people in this world... I am elated and honored to be rejoining childhood friend and fellow executive producer Ken Warwick, and look forward to creating more magic.”

Will that magic include Lythgoe as a judge? No.

What about Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler? Lythgoe would not confirm those rumors, but is on record as saying he "loves" Paula Abdul and would love to have her back on Idol.

That wacky judge is under contract with CBS for a new dance show, however. No word yet on whether or not her pharmacist is changing networks with her.

Jessica Simpson and new boyfriend Eric Johnson are spending plenty of time together, as evidenced by their Twitter kiss and all that good stuff.

How serious are they getting? More than you might think. People says that Johnson has ditched plans to attend business school in Pennsylvania.

Is that so the former NFL player can devote more time to dating Jess? Is he just using her, as some sources have suggested in the past month?

A friend of his says no ... but confirms he did put off grad school.

Eric Johnson had planned to attend the prestigious Wharton Business School's MBA program this month, but "decided against it," says the friend. "There were a lot of factors that went into his decision." We can think of two big ones.

"Jessica supports whatever he wants to do. He has a lot going on."

She won raves for her Entourage cameo, is reportedly in the running to become an American Idol judge, and has a new VH1 project in the works.

"She is in pre-production for a new show," a TV insider says without elaborating. "It will be the next step to her VH1 series, The Price of Beauty."

No word if the show will be called The Price of Hotness.

On her promotional tour for Salt, Angelina Jolie has not been shy regarding her happy family life and how she makes a point of spending time with the kids.

She even says she makes them bacon and eggs "every morning." But is this just a front for a conniving woman who's been ostracized by her own brood?

Stabbed in the Back For the 193rd Time

We doubt it, but why let truth stand in the way, right In Touch?

First it was the drug photos. Then Jennifer Aniston stealing Brad Pitt back. Now, the gossip magazine alleges, it's "secret flings" driving Brangelina apart.

Apparently, Leonardo DiCaprio was involved in one with her. Amazing how often she supposedly gets around for a woman whose every move is chronicled.

Angelina's children, this rag claims, like the nanny more than her!

Recently, at the Claremont Hotel in Oakland - where their dad is currently filming Moneyball - the kids seemed more interested in the nanny's company.

“At one point, Maddox and Pax got into a brotherly spat over the ketchup,” a witness says. “The nanny firmly said, ‘Mad, let Paxie have some ketchup.’"

"Maddox said, ‘Mom, do I have to?’ and Pax was whining, ‘Mom, make him give me some.’” That's right, the boys repeatedly called their nanny “mom.”

Shocking, scandalous stuff ... and proof that Angelina is being blackballed by her own family due to her conduct and status as an awful human being.

“Angelina is gone so much working or in meetings that the kids do spend most of their time during the day with the nannies,” a so-called friend claims.

“Publicly, [Jolie] would not like the help to be seen, but kids are so attached to them, they are like family - whether Angelina wants to believe it or not.”

For Miley Cyrus, it's the end of an era.

No, we aren't referring to the time in her life when she wore pants and didn't look ridiculous each time she took the stage.

Instead, we're paraphrasing the singer herself in a recent interview with The Montreal Gazette. Cyrus spoke to the newspaper and explained her decision to end Hannah Montana after this season:

"You don't want it to grow up too much, where the younger audience feel they can't watch the show anymore. But also, [don't] go backwards and make it so young that you lose the older fans that you have. It's just kind of come to a point where there's not much more we could do with [the show]."

Miley is focusing on her career as an adult actress, a transformation she understands isn't easy to take for many fans.

"I want to be a role model and have people look up to me, but this also doesn't mean that I am not going to live the way that I want to live," she said. "I'm going to grow up at some point, and I've been always honest about that."

Just so you know, Miles, wearing skimpy clothing on stage and pretending to make out with female dancers is NOT the sign of a grown-up. These are the actions of an immature child desperate for attention.

By now you pretty much know all there is to know about the Lindsay Lohan saga. Well, if you live in the U.S., anyway. For viewers in Taiwan, a news station decided to sum up the celebrity scandal with an animated reenactment.

As with their interpretation of Tiger and Elin Woods' fight last December, Taiwanese News Channel's take on the incarceration of Lindsay takes some (hilarious) creative liberties. Michael Lohan was not next to her in court, for example.

Michael makes two cameos in this dramatization for some reason, throwing a shoe at Kate Major in the other. Meanwhile, TNC's vision of Lindsay's life in jail - prison yard fights, dropping the soap in the shower - is LOL material.

While viewers may make fun of Danielle Staub and her unstable castmates on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, their antics clearly deliver ratings.

But with a new stable of spoiled, self-centered reality stars debuting on Bravo tonight, Stacie Scott Turner says fans should NOT expect such shenanigans on The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C.

"What was really compelling is that [producers] talked about how this series was going to be a little more sophisticated than the others and that they were looking to have the drama come from things other than table-tossing and the other stuff that you've grown to expect on the other series," Turner told E! News.

No hair-pulling and coke whoring allegations? Why should we tune in?!?

Turner says she and her costars - Mary Schmidt Amons, Lynda Erkiletian, Catherine Ommanney and Michaele Salahi - actually have informed opinions about current events and politics.

"By all means, we're not like Meet the Press or any of the serious shows," Turner said. "We still have fun. It's an entertaining show. Women are aware, informed and have an opinion - and we make ours known."

Fine. We'll probably tune in. But if at least one drink isn't thrown in someone's face before the month is over, we're outta there!

In an effort to separate truth from fiction, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department has contacted Oksana Grigorieva's former lawyer to see if she said inconsistent or incriminating things during her custody mediation with Mel Gibson.

Attorney Eric George will be asked about both Oksana's brutality claims against Mel as well as the actor's allegation that his ex is trying to extort him.

George is allowed to and will discuss what occurred during the mediation. Private conversations with Oksana are protected by attorney-client privilege.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that investigators are particularly interested in what Oksana is reportedly claiming now, but failed to claim in May:

  • She never mentioned, nor produced that alleged black eye photo
  • She never expressed concern that Mel was a threat to baby Lucia
  • She never said Mel threatened to kill her, her son, Lucia, or himself
  • Good Ol' Crazy Mel
  • Grigorieva On the Move

Mel is a deeply disturbed human - but do Oksana's allegations against him add up, or does she have an ulterior motive? That's what police are trying to sort out.

Investigators also want to get to the bottom of texts Oksana allegedly sent Mel a few months ago - saying she taped his phone calls because he was "not taking care of her." She claimed last week she did so because she feared for her life.

Mel's camp claims it has hard proof Oksana left evidence showing she was holding the Mel Gibson tapes over his head - the texts may be the key.

George was the attorney who negotiated a $15 million custody and confidentiality settlement package for Oksana, which she later disavowed.

The situation is so bizarre, it's no wonder officials are having trouble sorting it out.

Gibson's rants paint a disturbing image, yet the deluge of additional "evidence" she claims - the abuse pics, that Mel hit his two sons - is highly questionable.

Whose side are you on?

Is Jillian Michaels trying to kill us?

Possibly, according to a new lawsuit filed against the celebrity trainer.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

A woman referred to as "R.D." in documents has filed a class action lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court that claims Jillian's Triple Process Total Body Detox & Cleanse diet supplement contains a "potentially lethal combination of toxic ingredients. Also, it "might kill you."

Hmmm... can we feed it to Mel Gibson?

Among the ingredients the lawsuit singles out, as first reported by TMZ, are:

  • Irish Moss Powder because it "causes gastrointestinal ulcers" and is "so toxic that it is the gel commonly applied to aircraft wings to dissolve ice."
  • Bearberry, which is "known to cause nausea and vomiting."
  • Yarrow, described as "a toxic lawn weed that causes dermatitis"
  • Chinese Rhubarb, "a harsh laxative and dangerous diuretic that can cause sever dehydration and may cause irreversible liver damage"

R.D. is seeking $10 million for the conspiracy she alleges is behind the attempt to hide these products from the consumer. This is the fourth time Jillian has been sued for potentially toxic supplement ingredients.

Please just take our advice, people: if you wish to lose weight, eat in moderation and exercise. That's really the only healthy way to do it.
