Joe Simpson, father and pimp of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, is developing a television comedy for Nickelodeon based on his life raising two daughters.

Yes, we're serious. Because we haven't seen enough of Ashlee and Jessica Simpson's fairly uninteresting lives on TV and in the tabloids every day for 10 years.

This proposed 'tween series, a collaboration with comedy vet Tommy Lynch, is said to be based on the Simpson family's life in Texas before they were famous.

You know, the typically awkward, growing up years.

So we're sure there's nothing embarrassing to be mined from that, right? No, it's just Joe looking to further cash in on cash cows Ashlee and Jessica Simpson.

When Lacey Brown auditioned for American Idol last year, she sat next to eventual finalist Megan Joy in the cut room and was told by Randy Jackson that it was the end of the road.

Ha! Shows what Randy knows.

Brown is back on the show, receiving a golden ticket following her latest try out in Orlando. This Texas native wowed the judges with a rendition of "Over the Rainbow" and stands as a rumored season nine semifinalist.

Does Brown deserve to move along in Hollywood? Idol kicks off auditions from there next week, and you can check out Lacey's performance below in order to gauge her chanes on the competition.

The now-infamous doctor expected to be charged in the death of Michael Jackson, Dr. Conrad Murray, was going to be arrested, booked and arrainged today.

But, well ...

There's a feud between the L.A. County D.A.'s office and the LAPD over the terms of his surrender. These agencies are both intimately involved, and at odds.

It sounds like mostly politics, rather than any cracks in the case, but here's the very basic gist: the LAPD is bent out of shape about being kept in the dark.

The D.A.'s office had been working with lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray to arrange his voluntary surrender in court at the time of the arraignment today.

Infighting bought Dr. Conrad Murray at least a few hours.

Dr. Murray's lawyers were to drive him to the L.A. County Sheriff's Office at the Airport Courthouse in L.A. at 5:30 a.m. Friday, along with a bail bondsman.

He would be booked, post bail and then walk into court without cuffs or chains. This is often done to avoid the media circus and spectacle of a public arrest.

However, the LAPD objected, as cops want to arrest Conrad Murray, book him and bring him into court in handcuffs, something standard in homicide cases.

The D.A. reportedly backed off, and plan for Murray's voluntary surrender fell apart. According to TMZ, there is no arraignment today now. But we'll see.

When and if the authorities straighten this out, Murray is facing an involuntary manslaughter charge in connection the June 25 death of the King of Pop.

Try to hold back the tears, reality TV fans:

Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen are reportedly out of The Real Housewives of New York City. Sources tell The New York Daily News "there are a ton of reasons they aren't being asked back" for a fourth season of the Bravo hit.

Such as...

"Viewers don't have a positive reaction to them, so they're easily replaceable at this point," an insider said, while Simon himself doesn't deny the rumor, saying:

"We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season."

Moreover, the newspaper says the couple doesn't "really fit in with the other wives," while Simon threw a "hissy fit" when he discovered he was paid less than everyone else.

"Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn't really make any sense to Bravo," the source said. "After all, he's not a ‘Real Housewife,' now is he?"

No, he certainly is not. Then again, we're pretty sure neither Bethenny Frankel nor Kelly Bensimon is married... or real in any sense of the word.

The third season of The Real Housewives of New York City premieres on March 4. In it, "Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it's an attempt to keep her story line relevant," said the insider. "But it ended up seeming inauthentic."

As compared to the rest of this totally believable, not remotely scripted show, of course.

Last month, Monica Leon - aka "Danger" - accused Ray J of being gay. But that isn't the only firestorm she's started this year.

Literally!

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

According to TMZ, the former For the Love of Ray J finalist has been detained by police, following a fire in her Hollywood apartment. She appears to be a suspect in an arson investigation.

Why would Danger start a fire? It's unclear. Why would she get a tattoo on her face?

Here's what went down: the L.A. City Fire Department responded to a 911 call from Danger's complex at approximately 2:15 p.m. yesterday. When police arrived, the fire had been extinguished, but arson investigators were called anyway.

Due to evidence at the scene, authorities took Danger into custody pending further investigation. She's being held under a 72-hour watch.

In December, Monica was placed in a 5150 psychiatric hold after an incident involving her newborn daughter.

She's not exactly at the level or Ryan Jenkins, but maybe, just maybe, it's time for VH1 to re-evaluate its reality TV shows and how it screens - or, clearly, fails to screen - its contestants.

She was kicked off The Bachelor after an "inappropriate relationship" with a crew member (which probably never happened), but Rozlyn Papa is over it now.

Producer Ryan Callahan was fired over his alleged dalliances with Rozlyn, although the exact nature of their relationship has always been disputed. Oh well.

Putting her bitter feelings aside took time, but these days she's in good spirits and weighing in on Jake Pavelka's final four - as a member of Team Tenley!

"If I were matchmaker, it would be Jake and Tenley," Rozlyn said, to the surprise of few, as there's little to dislike about sweet, squeaky Tenley Molzahn.

"I really liked her. She's my favorite!"

Rozlyn Papa (right) is a card-carrying member of Tenley Nation.

Emerging as a favorite herself before "the incident" sent her packing, Rozlyn also weighed in on the rumored winner and chief Tenley competitor, Vienna Girardi.

"Vienna is always sweet," Papa says. "She's a different breed. I didn't really get to see her interact with Jake very much, but I heard she makes it pretty far."

Despite the unfortunate circumstances that got her kicked off, whichever side you believe, Rozlyn says she harbors little ill will against Jake or The Bachelor.

Still, she can't resist maintaining her innocence and getting in a quick dig.

"There was never any sex between any producer and myself at any time. But it's great been for that show! Chris Harrison is still talking about the scandal."

You said it, Rozlyn. Who should Jake choose on The Bachelor?

Britney Spears' outfit at the Grammys was universally lampooned by TV critics and THG readers alike (she got whomped by Katy Perry in our fashion face-off).

Almost overlooked, given that hideous lace bodysuit / corset debacle, was Spears' return to her natural brown hair. What do you think? Is it a positive change?

Dollar Store Hottie

The girlfriend of Jason Trawick has once again taken a walk on the dark side (only in the literal sense, natch), trading her Barbie-blonde locks for raven waves.

Which look do you prefer? Vote below!

Sorry, we had to. Each of these outfits (and plenty we've left out) would be worthy of its own article, but we've compiled some of our favorite Lady Gaga pictures from the past six months. Talk about fashion equaling performance art!

What will she wear next? Will she ever release a song that doesn't hit #1? Is she a hermaphrodite? Who knows. There are only two things we know for sure:

  1. This is only an abridged gallery.
  2. If last weekend's Grammys and other recent concerts are any indication, the next six months are going to produce an even better gallery than this!

The latest issue of Sports Illustrated dubs Lindsey Vonn as "America's Best Woman Skier Ever."

If any controversy were to arise over this issue, you'd think this statement would be the cause. But there's no room for debate, considering Vonn is the first U.S. woman to win back-to-back overall World Cup championships.

Instead, Vonn's pose is creating a stir. It's not difficult to see why:

Lindsey Vonn SI Cover

The question at stake is a common refrain when female athletes are depicted in a sexual manner:

Is this objectifying them, or celebrating them? Is is sexist to highlight Vonn's beauty, or merely the job of any photographer to bring out what's most attractive about a subject?

An editorial on womantalksports.com reports that only 4% of Sports Illustrated covers feature women and these "are more likely than not to be in sexualized poses and not in action - and the most recent Vonn cover is no exception."

Then again, Danica Patrick has never been shy about playing up her sexuality - and it's led to a surge in popularity for her sport and for herself.

SI has clearly tilted the photo above to highlight Vonn's... assets. Is this right or wrong? Do you think the cover shot is sexist?

 

For a contrast, we've posted a photo of Vonn ran by The New York Times this week. Check it out below.

Anne Hathaway would love to kiss Angelina Jolie ... or at least kiss like her. The Valentine's Day star says "full-on movie kissing" isn't one of her strong suits.

Angelina, thought? Well, we all know how she split up Brad and Jen and about her (supposed, fictitious) affair with Lady Gaga. No wonder Anne wants in!

"You have to be Angelina Jolie to pull that off and still look good," she says of the forceful movie kiss. "I don't know if you've noticed, but I ain't no Angie."

No, but we've also noticed she's no slouch herself ...

Anne in GQ

Anne Hathaway heats up the pages of GQ UK.

She did offer tips on what she calls "pretty movie kissing," using the back of her hand as the lucky recipient. Guys everywhere are so turned on right now.

"You just have to relax, leave your mouth open a little bit," she tells the magazine's March issue. "Open up. More, more, ever so lightly." Easy there, fellas.

"Otherwise you're going to be getting smoothy. Now, slow it down ... just a little bit."

How jealous are you of Adam Shulman right now?

"If you're both unattached and you get along, of course kissing in a movie is fun," she says. "But you can never get truly deep down and into it. Well, I can't."

"Jennifer Garner - now that girl can movie kiss!"

We now return to your regularly scheduled gossip.
