Seriously, that is a real event. The much-anticipated National Single Cougars Convention took place at Dinah's Garden Hotel in Palo Alto, Calif., last Friday.

Yes, really, it did.

The event, sponsored by Rich Gosse's Society of Single Professionals, began with cocktails, appetizers and presentations from some different booth sponsors.

Author Francesca Gentille and Tahil Gesyuk, her partner who is 14 years younger, spoke to a room of close to 60 cougars on relationships with younger men.

This woman was named First Runner-Up at Miss Cougar USA. Just kidding.

No word on the criteria necessary to enter one's self in the Miss Cougar USA pageant. Maybe we can learn more from that new show Cougar Town this fall.

After the presentation, the Cougar Ball began with over a hundred “cubs,” or younger men, who mingled and danced with all the singles. Society is great.

The climax of the night was the crowning of the first Miss Cougar USA (also called Miss Cougar America) which went to Gloria Navarro of Redwood Shores.

Congratulations, we guess, to Gloria Navarro.

Eliot Spitzer, the disgraced former governor of New York State, is thinking about getting back into politics. Yeah, that's how bad his replacement is doing.

With Spitzer making a slow return to the public stage, his former mistress / call girl, Ashley Dupre, thinks she deserves a second chance too, dammit!

Ashley Dupre the Whore

A second chance for attention, maybe.

Tired of being known as "woman who brought down the Governor," Dupre said "I didn’t call the tabloids, I didn’t blow the whistle and I didn’t save 'the dress.'"

Nice Monica Lewinsky reference there.

As for accusations she has been "'cashing in' on the scandal – wrong again."

She says she never sold photos of herself, posed nude, did any reality TV or sold any of her music in the wake of her career as a hooker being exposed.

This comment is:

  1. Untrue, as her crappy songs were downloaded hundreds of thousands of times online once her name was released in the sex scandal
  2. Misleading, as she certainly tried to get a reality TV show, only no one was interested, and gave a number of high-profile interviews

Still, Ashley Dupre says that being outed as a high-class ho has "closed far more doors than it ever opened" (fancy that) and that the real people trying to cash in are publishers, whom she dismisses as "worse than the tabloids."

She seems to imply that more than one has begged for a book deal about the “exciting life of a high-priced NYC escort,” but she took the high road.

Somehow we doubt it. But most of Ashley Dupre's rage is reserved for the women of New York City and beyond, whom she says "love to judge."

"I know many women who target guys with money and use them to get things," Dupre says. "They toy with them, flirt, go on dates, have sex and then drop hints about that new dress at the store down the street or being short on rent money."

Is what I did any more dishonest? Get real and get over yourself."

The anti-attention whore's interview ends, naturally, with a nice plug for a "Rough mix of a song I am working on that tells a little bit of my story."

Not that she's trying to cash in or anything. Heavens no.

Law enforcement sources say the one and only person the LAPD is focusing on in the ongoing Michael Jackson homicide investigation is Dr. Conrad Murray.

For weeks, Murray has garnered the most attention from investigators and the media outlets covering the case, as he was Jackson's personal physician.

But other Jackson doctors, including Dr. Arnold Klein, have been scrutinized by law enforcement for their role in supplying the late superstar with drugs.

Sources say that right now, however, Dr. Conrad Murray is the only person in the crosshairs in the homicide investigation surrounding Jackson's death.

Vintage MJ

Police are treating the death of Michael Jackson (1958-2009) as a homicide.

Michael Jackson died June 25 of a lethal Propofol injection administered by Dr. Murray. He has admitted this, and while he clearly did not mean to cause the death of the King of Pop, a number of factors may result in criminal charges being filed.

Among the many inconsistencies and strange actions taken by Murray on the day of Jackson's deathis the unexplained 82-minute window during which the singer was believed to have stopped breathing before anyone dialed 911.

Sources say manslaughter or even murder charges are imminent.

Other doctors are by no means in the clear, as they may be facing fraudulent prescription charges as well as consequences for prescribing to an addict.

We hear a lot these days about Adam Lambert, Kris Allen and the season eight finalists on American Idol. For good reason, they rule!

But let's take a moment and recognize the talented season six champion, Jordin Sparks, who has enjoyed a solid career in the spotlight since her victory in 2007.

Jordin's most impressive accomplishment? Dueting with Chris Brown on "No Air" and coming out of it without a black eye! That's not as easy as it sounds.

Over the summer, Sparks has sported a pair of contrasting hairstyles. She looks cute in both, but we're asking readers to choose their favorite. Study the photos below and then vote in our poll...

  • Nothing But Sparks

Which Jordin Sparks style do you prefer?

After a pair of weddings in the last 12 months, are Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag headed to divorce court? If Heidi gets pregnant, Spencer says maybe.

"He said, 'That's the quickest way to divorce,'" the plastic princess told MTV News. "I said, 'No, sucker -you are officially locked in. What do you mean?'"

But Spencer Pratt says he isn't joking.

If she gets pregnant, "I told her there's a divorce or adoption," the PR guru, who says he plans on changing his name to King Spencer Pratt in the near future says. "If she's not down with the adoption, I think it's divorce."

Why doesn't he want a baby? "I'm a baby. I'm not prepared," he confesses. "And I'm not sure the world wants or needs a Spencer Pratt spawn."

That may be the first intelligent thing he's ever said.

Speidi Spawn

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag browse the kids section at Kitson to pretend to be considering having children and stir up lots of good celebrity gossip reports.

Four months after their (legal) wedding, Spencer says Heidi Montag is "trying to have a baby like it's going to buy a new pair of Louis Vuittons."

We're not sure what that means, but she says she's "ready" for kids.

"I think I was born ready," says The Hills star. "I'm very maternal."

Truly, she is. Heidi Pratt is a regular Scott Disick.

"I'm very loving. I would be the best mom ever," she continued.

"[He feels] not quite the same, but maybe he doesn't know he wants kids yet... He says that he never wants kids, but maybe I'll have a surprise for him."

Watch out, Spencer. Looks like she could be planning to go Rielle Hunter style and pull the goalie on you when you least expect it. Double bag it, man.

Some comeback performances are so moving, they leave you longing for the days of yore and simultaneously marveling at how good the stars still are.

Anyone who saw Whitney Houston on Good Morning America and its summer concert series this week knows that was not one of those comebacks. No.

Voice cracking constantly and leaning on the audience to hit the high notes, Whitney reminded us that some singing careers are better left to history.

But she still looked good at least. Click to enlarge photos of Whitney Houston below, comforted by the fact that you don't have to hear any of the "music" ...

Okay, we can't resist. If you need to hear part of the Good Morning America train wreck to prove we're not being unnecessarily harsh in our critique, or because you just love seeing celebrities fail miserably, check out the video below:

Lisa Loeb and Roey Hershkovitz are pregnant. Well, she is pregnant. They are expecting. However you want to put it, the newlyweds are going to be parents.

"They're excited to welcome their first child this winter," says Loeb's manager.

Lisa Loeb, 41, and Roey Hershkovitz, 31, music production supervisor for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, met in 2006 at a business meeting and were engaged last November. They got married just a few months after that.

Their winter wonderland-themed wedding, featuring all-white centerpieces and tiny deer figurines, was held at Manhattan restaurant Brasserie 8 1/2 in January.

The singer said the evening was "the most fun night ever."

Loeb launched her career in 1994 with the number one single "Stay (I Missed You)." She heads up her own non-profit, the Camp Lisa Foundation, which helps underprivileged children attend summer camp. Congrats on the baby news!

According to sources, Kristen Stewart is a "young woman in love" on the set of Eclipse.

That's great and all, but can we get an update on the actual shooting of the third Twilight Saga film?!?

Thanks to Jackson Rathbone, the answer is an Obama-like: Yes, we can! The actor that plays Jasper Hale spoke to MTV this week about his character's role in the movie. Here are excerpts from the interview:

On Jasper's Civil War backstory: I get to shoot some Civil War stuff, and I'm also going to shoot a lot of fighting scenes.

On fighting techniques in Eclipse: We're talking about newborn vampires that can't control their urges — they can't really think very quickly. So if you just let them go to their instincts and evade and attack them from side to side, you could get them; but if you try and go after them through force, they're going to win every time. So it's all about evasion.

On the scene where Jasper becomes a vampire: It's going to be great. I've been studying up a lot on the Civil War and that era. It really was a crazy time. It was all-out war on our own turf and between countrymen... It's an interesting time to see when Jasper was actually human and what his human form was and, when he gets turned, how intense and how dark he is. Then [we'll see] his realization of what he's become, him finding Alice and being redeemed by love.

Eclipse will be released on June 30, 2010. Seven months prior to that, New Moon hits theaters on November 20.

Which are you more excited for?

The rumored romance between Candice Crawford, beauty queen and sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, and Dallas Cowboys star Tony Romo is now confirmed!

Or at least reported by a whole bunch of other sources!

The Chicago Sun-Times, Dallas Morning News, New York Daily News and others are saying that the football star has moved on from Jessica Simpson with Candice.

One could call her a younger, prettier and in all likelihood smarter and less annoying version of the alleged actress and singer he dated for over a year until recently.

Us Weekly even quotes a source as saying Candice Crawford is "not exactly happy that it's out [in the media], but they weren't trying to hide either." Okay then.

"They've gone out to dinner in Dallas a bunch."

Guess that means she's dating Tony Romo!

Candice Crawford Bikini Picture

Candice Crawford and Tony Romo make a cute couple.

Candice, 22, was crowned Miss Missouri 2008 (she went to school there), and is a native of Dallas along with Gossip Girl actor Chace, who's pals with Tony Romo.

Talk about mixing business and pleasure, too: She reports on high school sports for Dallas station 33TV and also hosts a weekend Dallas Cowboys sports show.

Looks like she'll be getting the inside scoop in more ways than one from now on, if you know what we mean! NOTE: We don't even know what we mean by that.

Forget Jasmine Fiore for a moment. There was another victim in the Ryan Jenkins murder/suicide rampage:

Reality star Megan Hauserman.

Reality TV Addicted

Due to the fact that one of the contestants on her latest series, Megan Wants a Millionaire, turned out to be a cold-blooded killer, VH1 canceled the dating competition before a winner was crowned.

This left Hauserman without a reality TV vehicle for the first time in ages. But that will soon change for the former Beauty and the Geek, Rock of Love with Bret Michaels, I Love Money and Rock of Love: Charm School contestant. She's getting yet another program.

“VH1 is giving Megan her own reality show,” a source told Radar Online, adding that the network "promised Megan her own show... that’s how they bought her silence.”

Really? We're guessing her silence could have been bought with a free tanning session and a manicure.

The insider said Hauserman won't anchor another dating-themed series because, well, you saw what happened the last time she tried that. Instead, look for some sort of unscripted program that will likely involve very little clothing.
