Two weeks after her son committed suicide, Marie Osmond will return to the Las Vegas stage.

The singer and brother Donny will sing again for audiences on March 9. They have also added a handful of dates to their Sin City show, in order to make up for canceled performances in wake of their recent family tragedy.

The duo has tacked on five shows between April 13 and 17 at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino.

"These were previously unscheduled show dates, added to accommodate guests who had tickets to recently canceled shows due to the personal tragedy in the Osmond family," read a press release, while the show's producer added:

"I think performing will help the healing process for [Marie]."

We wish her the best.

John Edwards is already a walking disgrace, having cheated on his cancer-stricken wife with Rielle Hunter, knocking up his weird mistress, trying to cover the scandal up, and lying about it repeatedly while running for President of the United States.

Now a Federal grand jury may decide there was criminal behavior in there, too.

The former U.S. Senator may find himself indicted shortly, according to reports, for illegally using campaign funds to hide his affair with Hunter.

One-time aide Andrew Young and none other than Edwards' own estranged wife Elizabeth could help take the fallen presidential candidate, too.

Edwards is being investigated by FBI, IRS and election officials for myriad possible campaign violations related to paying hush money to Rielle Hunter.

The grand jury has been convened since April, and an indictment is imminent.

FALL FROM GRACE: There's truly never been one like this.

"John is terrified he's going to be indicted," a friend said.

"While he believes he's done nothing illegal in trying to hide his affair with Rielle and their daughter, he thinks the Feds are going to make an example out of him."

Right. Make an example of him. Because they do that. Sorry, John, weren't you a personal injury lawyer at one point? They never make examples out of anything.

Tell us, how's the view look from the other side? What's the saying? Do the crime, do the time, pal. All because you had to go and do Rielle Hunter.

So worth it right now.

A couple weeks ago, we were criticized for writing that Adam Lambert blasted Susan Boyle's album and rendition of "Wild Horses." Fans of the American Idol finalist thought that was a misrepresentation of his comments.

But make no mistake now: Ke$ha has very much torn into Britney Spears.

In a new interview, the outspoken singer was asked about Britney's habit of lip-synching during concerts and replied:

“I think that’s bull$hit. I don’t think that’s fair at all for people who are going to see the show. If you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance."

  • Crazy Performer
  • Singing Not Required

“If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing. I would never do that to my fans... It’s treating people as if they are too stupid to realize you are not actually singing... I would rather be off and be real and genuine about it to my fans."

This isn't the first time Spears has been called out for pretending to sing live. A few months ago, fans in Australia walked out of Britney's Circus tour due to the singer's shoddy lip-synching and general performance.

What do you think of Ke$ha's comments? Fair or foul?

It was easy to laugh at Erica and Victoria Mongeon during their MTV reality show run. Better known as the Ikki Twins, these sisters starred as lesbians on the dating series A Double Shot at Love.

But this is no laughing matter: Erica is in a medically-induced coma after being injured in a major car accident yesterday.

The Ikki Twins

The siblings were passengers in a Volkswagen Jetta that hit a tire in the road and was subsequently rear-ended by a truck when the driver attempted to pull over. The crash took place near Bakersfield, California.

"Right after the accident everybody was feeling OK, but Rikki had a bump on her head and nobody thought it was a big deal, but for just for the heck of it they went to the hospital," rep Rick Brown told E! News, explaining how things got worse from there:

"Then, the doctors did a test that said she had bleeding in her skull. She never felt bad, like you would expect, but they put her into a medically-induced coma and will keep her down until Friday. The plan is to bring her out of the coma on Friday and take it from there."

Neither Victoria nor the car's driver were seriously injured.

Brown has asked fans to pray for Erica, though she's expected to survive.

** UPDATE: Erica is not out of the woods yet, but her manager says her eyes are open and she's responsive.

She went from the hospital bed to the American Idol stage to the leader of the season nine pack in just 24 hours.

Indeed, we aren't the first website to shower Crystal Bowersox with praise - and we definitely won't be the last - but it's well-deserved.

On a night of live performances that overshadowed the guys' lackluster efforts the evening before, Bowersox recovered from a dangerous illness and led the way. We run down the top 10 below...

  1. Crystal Bowersox: She gets points for showing up and for not playing the sympathy card. But especially for her unique rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Long As I Can See the Light."
  2. Lilly Scott: A close second. Challenged herself with the Sam Cooke classic “A Change is Gonna Come” and was even better than last week. Love her confidence in just who she is.
  3. Michelle Delamor: Note to Todrick Hall: this is how you re-arrange a song! Michelle comes across as a professional singer and turned a Creed rock single into a ballad.
  4. Siobhan Magnus: The anti-Aretha Franklin sung Franklin's "Think" and showcased her versatility. The place went nuts when she hit her high notes.
  5. Katelyn Epperly: Ellen was off base with this critique. The song was supposed to be slow, and the use of the piano proved that Katelyn has multiple sides to her.
  6. Katie Stevens: She has a great voice and a great personality. The judges have to get over the fact that she's 17 and just let her sing.
  7. Paige Miles: It's always daring to take a song by an American Idol winner, but Miles did Kelly Clarkson's "Walk Away" sort of proud. Definitely needed more of an edge to it.
  8. Didi Benami: We felt terrible for when the tears welled up during the judges' criticism. But "Lean On Me?" Really? It's impossible to make that song your own at this point.
  9. Lacey Brown: Simply not up to par, vocals-wise, with the other contestants.
  10. Haeley Vaughn: We're all for being happy, but her constant smiling freaks us out. She's like a doll of some kind.mi

It's a clear choice, in our view: Lacey and Haeley should go home tonight. What do you think?

Radar Online may have topped itself with this one.

Citing an ex-girlfriend with no name, and offering no details of any actual sex, that site says Jake Pavelka cheated on Vienna Girardi with some random ex.

His alleged ex-girlfriend says The Bachelor star "made contact" with her after taping the show. Scandalous! He also said that Vienna meant nothing to him.

Supposedly.

The woman has not been publicly identified, possibly because she does not exist. But whoever it is gave a garbled interview on some Florida radio station.

In the interview, the woman says that Jake was forced to propose to Vienna Girardi. From what we know of The Bachelor, that part might really be true!

For a guy who's supposedly cheating on Vienna and in love with some nameless other woman, Jake sure looked happy yesterday in his sit-down with Ellen DeGeneres.

“When you get down on one knee and propose marriage to someone I take that very seriously,” she says through distorted audio. “The fact that he did that exclusively because he was instructed to do that, it disappoints me so much.”

Instructed. You knowz it. That's how Chris Harrison rolls.

The supposed Jake Pavelka ex reveals that they had made plans together for the future and even had a possible marriage discussion. She feels she was lied to.

“His actions are a complete 180 of that person he claims to be," she says. "I feel like I'm forced to say something for the sole purpose of defending my honor.”

Mmm hmm. This is even more absurd than the story yesterday claiming Vienna is an evil mastermind who manipulated Ali and conned Jake into proposing.

Jake started calling her after he finished taping The Bachelor, she says, and those phone calls led to an in person meeting and "he told her he loved her."

Whether this is true or complete BS, the question remains: Will Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi last, and actually walk down the aisle?

As Robert Pattinson continues to make the media rounds, his Remember Me co-star Emilie de Ravin is praising the actor at every turn.

Asked in general about the Twilight Saga stud, the Austrlian beauty told E! News:

"He's a lovely guy. Nothing felt unnatural or weird."

Except, perhaps, the atmosphere around the set. The movie was filmed in New York City and Pattinson fans would line the streets, trying to get a look at their favorite star, snapping photos, screaming.

"Crazy is the word," de Ravin said. "It's a little challenging sometimes. We were very accessible to people in Manhattan... You're trying to work out your rehearsal and all these eyes just watching everything you're doing."

Posing with Fans

In Remember Me, Pattinson portrays the rebellious son of a wealthy New Yorker. He falls in love with de Ravin's Ally, the daughter of a Queens cop. It takes place in late 2001, so you can imagine the recent tragedy everyone in that city is facing.

According to de Ravin said, you better bring a box of tissues with you to the theater: "If you don't cry, there's something wrong with you."

And we don't think she's referring to the reaction many women have when they simply see Pattinson.

Will Tiger Woods' wife move back in with him?

After three months of estrangement, some sources say Elin Woods has finally agreed to resume living at home with her cheating jackass husband.

Vintage Elin Nordegren

Whether or not that's actually true? Unclear.

But without a doubt, it’s a burning question, given the lengths the golfer is going to in order to save a marriage he selfishly desecrated for so long.

Elin Woods has been renting a house about a mile from the mansion they previously shared since those pesky 12 Tiger Woods mistresses emerged.

WEDDED BLISS: Will things go back to normal for the Woods'?

She has refused to move home despite two previous overtures from Tiger. But on Wednesday, Elin and Tiger did spend approximately three hours together there.

That alone shows how far the couple has come from Thanksgiving, when Elin Woods discovered he was having an affair with Rachel Uchitel and went off on him.

Since his bizarre double life was exposed, Tiger has spent approximately six weeks in rehab at Hattiesburg, Miss., and later received more therapy in Arizona.

Will it be enough? Can she ever forgive him? If she does, is she doing the right thing by doing so? Or would the best move have been to leave him long before?

Tell us: Elin Woods should ...

Whitney Port turns 25 today. Happy birthday, girl!

Ever since we first got to know Whitney on The Hills, she's been a favorite of THG's. There's a lot to love about the sweet, genuine, expressive SoCal cutie.

While she began her reality TV career as BFF and co-worker of Lauren Conrad, she soon moved on to her own show, The City, chronicling her move to NYC.

There, Whitney Port only endeared herself to us more, even if some of the men (Freddie Fackelmayer) and friends (Roxy Olin) in her life are exasperating.

Gorgeous Whitney

Happy birthday, Whitney!

We look forward to watching her life and fashion career continue to evolve in the coming year(s), and can't wait for the new season of her hit series. 

Here's a little photo tribute we put together for The City star. Click to enlarge the images below and leave a comment with your birthday greetings ...

The other night, Jay Leno asked Sarah Palin if she had any future TV plans, and she joked that she heard his position opens up every once in awhile.

Well it turns out she already has a TV plan of sorts. The former Alaska Governor and Survivor creator Mark Burnett are shopping a new docudrama.

Seriously. The TV project features a "planet-Earth-type look" at her home state of Alaska. We have no idea what that means, but it sounds ... cool?

We'll assume it refers to the acclaimed Discovery Channel series Planet Earth. Which has sort of already done what they're describing if so. Anyway.

So much Sarah Palin on TV. Not enough hours in the day.

Palin and Burnett had a meeting with Fox honchos yesterday, and are talking with ABC and CBS today and NBC Universal tomorrow. So this is legit.

Other documentaries we'd love to see from Sarah Palin:
