Chris Brown's brutal assault on her shocked the world and rocked hers early last year. Not in a good way, either. But Rihanna says she has no regrets.

The 22-year-old singer tells the December issue of Marie Claire UK that "God has a crazy way of working" and that in a way, it was what she needed.

"Sometimes when stuff happens you feel like, 'What did I do to deserve this?' Why was it backfiring on me?'" she recalls. "But I needed that wake-up call."

"I needed a turning point, and that's what God was giving to me." - Rihanna

At the time, however, Rihanna says it was difficult to go through such a painful situation - and the end of the relationship - in the public eye.

"All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down," she says.

"[But] at the same time, once you're actually back on your feet - if you ever make it back on your feet - that's the ultimate achievement."

She says it wasn't easy to break up with Brown, but knew it was time.

Adam Lambert will soon be receiving the E! True Hollywood Story treatment.

On November 21, the network will dedicate an hour to the former American Idol runner-up, who has amassed both critics and fans since first appearing on TV's highest-rated show.

"I'm an entertainer. To provoke conversation and opinion is part of what I do," Lambert says during an interview portion of the program.

In New Zealand

The program will also feature conversations with those closest to the singer, including parents Leila and Eber, brother Neil and friends Anne Powers and Vanessa Grigoriadis.

"I'm very fortunate to have parents that recognized that I was different and recognized how I was special. They didn't ever try to box me in," says Lambert, who also admits that he "lived a rock star lifestyle" during his early days of performing in musical theater groups on cruise ships and throughout Europe.

Justin Timberlake abhors being the subject of tabloid speculation, even when the gossip is fairly vanilla. This latest report may send him into a rage.

According to Us, he cheated on girlfriend Jessica Biel - with Olivia Munn!

The two supposedly engaged in a three-night love tryst while his lady was far away. Is this story far away from the truth? Spot on? In between? We can't say.

Justin Caught Cheating?

MUNN AND DONE: Is TimberBiel's relationship on shaky ground?

For what it's worth, Jessica Biel, along with Eva Mendes and Rachel Weisz, premiered her short films in Hollywood last night at the Glamour Reel Moments event.

Justin was in town, but was a no-show at her big premiere.

A source close to the still-together duo explained that The Social Network star didn't want to the steal the thunder from Jess in front of the press on "her night."

We can buy that ... but you can't help but wonder if there's trouble in paradise. On the flip side, maybe Us is venturing into In Touch territory lately. Stay tuned.

Gossip Girl stars Penn Badgley and Blake Lively have ended their three-year romance, a rep for the twosome exclusively tells the new issue of Us. OMFG!

They called it quits in mid-September, amicably. "They’re professionals," an insider says of the pair. "They're still good friends and hang out on the set."

The duo, who met as preteen actors in L.A., then began dating as their characters were dating on Gossip Girl, "kept this news to themselves for a while."

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley have broken up after almost three years.

Indeed, they have always taken a drama-free approach to their relationship, and that includes the breakup aspect of it. They just go about their business.

Even those closest to the twosome may be shocked to hear the news. "Nobody on set had any idea," says the insider. "They're really just private."

We're sorry to hear about this breakup news, although it does put a new spin on Blake's rumored hookup with Ryan Gosling earlier this month.

Even the most sympathetic Mel Gibson fan knows it has to happen.

No, he hasn't been charged with a crime (yet). No, Oksana isn't some sweet, innocent victim. No, his firing from The Hangover 2 probably wasn't totally fair.

Mel Gibson and Some Sketchy Old Guy

Still, the Mel Gibson rants are what they are. Repulsive, scary and unbecoming of any human being, let alone an all-time movie star. So where's the apology?

Mel Gibson will finally testify next week in his child custody case. But in the court of public opinion, the actor has more than a little explaining to do as well.

According to reports, the actor is starting to realize that remaining silent may be a smart legal strategy, but it's doing him no favors in the eyes of the public.

It's only a matter of time before the fallen star tells his side of the story, at least in part, if for no other reason than to begin resurrecting a tarnished image.

Since the second the tapes were released, every media outlet has been contacting Mel's people asking for an interview. No response. But that might change.

Joe Finley says he is innocent.

The America's Got Talent contestant claims he saw wife Laura alive at 3 a.m. last Saturday, awoke to her missing, reported that fact to the Millennium Biltmore Hotel staff in Las Vegas and then went to audition for the NBC reality show.

Considered a person of interest in the case, Joe swears someone else killed his wife.

Joe and Laura Finley

But a relative of Laura's tells TMZ she thinks Joe's "whole story is BS," adding: "There are too many gaping holes for it to be true.”

Days before he hosts a Rally to Restore Sanity in the nation's capital, Jon Stewart has been honored as the most influential man of 2010.

"Despite his innumerable enemies, Stewart's acerbic take on the madness around him continues to draw audiences who look to the funnyman as a voice of reason," wrote AskMen, the website that conducted this survey. "Stewart's show was once dubbed the 'fake news,' but these days it's become our youths' most trusted source of information."

Rounding out the top five in the poll: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Kanye West. President Barack Obama? All the way down at number-21. Ouch. Writes the site:

Jon Gosselin's girlfriend, Ellen Ross, has a new blog in which readers ask her for advice on everything from wedding politics to breakups to school bullying.

"I am notorious for being able to hold my own and make excellent decisions," Ross writes. "I like to think I have a pretty good head on my shoulders."

Jon Plus 4

On the website, Ellen Ross indirectly references her (in)famous boyfriend, warning readers that "this is not a site to discuss my relationship and critique it."

Ellen Ross gives out the advice, people. Keep your own to yourself!

"Only I know the truth and reality with what's going on in my life so please don't try to send me any emails or comments warning me of what could happen."

Jon and Ellen met in April on a blind date. Can you imagine being set up on a blind date, only to have it be Jon Gosselin? Hey, I know this great unemployed, overweight guy with eight kids and bad hair plugs! You should TOTALLY meet him!

To her credit, the 24-year-old Pennsylvania government worker has been dating Gosselin since this past spring, and has been a stabilizing influence on him.

He recently apologized on Twitter for all his past decisions and seems more focused, relatively speaking at least, on living a quiet life and focusing on his kids.

What drunken, half-naked, prostitute and cocaine-based New York City hotel escapade?!?

In a couple days, it will seem like such an incident never took place for Charlie Sheen, as sources confirm the actor is simply headed back to work this week.

The Look of Crazy

"Charlie will be working this week doing a cameo role, playing himself, in a small movie as a favor to a friend and has every intention of going back to work on Two and a Half Men on Tuesday," his manager Mark Burg told People. "He's looking forward to working."

Charlie Sheen gives new meaning to the nickname Wild Thing...

Sheen was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon, hours after police responded to a call from a frightened hooked who locked herself in the bathroom because the allegedly high actor went berzerk in the face of a lost wallet. Cops found Sheen passed out in bed.

Oh, and his two daughter were staying next door.

Note to readers: if you won't stop watching Sheen's sitcom because it's painfully unfunny, perhaps you'll stop watching it to send a message to someone who clearly needs help.

There were a few competitors we could have seen being voted off Dancing With the Stars this week. Audrina Patridge was not on that list, but she's headed home.

As such, Rock Week left the field all shook up.

With 24 points in her individual routine and another eight in the group marathon, Audrina's total of 32 was the second HIGHEST of the week behind Brandy.

Audrina and Tony

Audrina and Tony are out. Go figure that.

Despite besting Kurt Warner (22), Bristol Palin (28) and even favorite Jennifer Grey (29) fell from grace, the former Hills star apparently didn't do it for voters.

Too bad, because she's actually one of the better dancers this fall. What she lacked in passion, she more than made up for in technique, effort and consistency.

"I've had so much fun this entire experience," said Audrina Patridge. "Tony has been such an amazing teacher ... Thank you for all the comments and support."

Judge Len Goodman was less diplomatic.
