Okay, so Stephen Colbert had nothing to do with this. But this is what the Comedy Central host's trademark On Notice board would look like if THG got hold of it.

While Daniel Tosh may have passed him in the ratings, Colbert remains the man. Surely not a man you want to cross if you're an environmental disaster, anyway.

In honor of Stephen, and as a new means of calling out some things in the celebrity and real worlds that really deserve it, we're putting the following On Notice!

Puttin 'Em On Notice
  1. The oil spill. Way to ruin the Gulf of Mexico, BP.
  2. The View. This program is known for its outspoken panel's controversial stances ... but their ignorant HIV comments were straight out of the early 1980s.
  3. Mel Gibson. The fact that we had a hard time deciding which insane, racist, sexist Mel Gibson tirade to link to in this article tells you all you need to know.
  4. OK! Magazine. At least make up new lies. Yeesh.
  5. LeBron James' "team." No, not the Heat. The marketing gurus who convinced him to stick it to Cleveland on national TV. Way to "build a brand," guys!
  6. The-Dream. Stop lying. We know you were creepin'.
  7. East Coast weather. Al Gore must be cackling right now. If we wanted to live in a furnace, we'd move to Arizona. At least everything there has AC.
  8. Frank from The Bachelorette. We're not gonna give away any Bachelorette spoilers here ... but it's in the previews. How can you pull that crap, man?

If we were the cynical type, we'd say Kim Kardashian is only pretending to be Lindsay Lohan's friend these days because it makes her look like a caring individual.

After all, Kim stopped by Lindsay's house for dinner the day after Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in prison - and we challenge anyone to come up with the last time these two hung out prior to that verdict.

At the Amp Energy Bullrun Rally this weekend, Kardashian was asked about this newfound connection and told OK! Weekly: “I just think that no matter what your friends go through you just have to support your friends, no matter what.”

Speaking of support, Kim's outfit at this random event supported her curves quite well:

Hot Suit

Kardashian was also asked about Lamar Odom at the rally and had nothing but praise for her brother-in-law:

“Lamar is a really strong guy... I think it takes a real man to be able to handle living this crazy life. And having him and his wife be in it together is a lot to deal with, but everyone does a good job at it. You have to not let it really affect your life too much.”

Not affect your life too much?!? This is your life, Kim! The press and the paparazzi and the tabloid covers are how you and your family make a living.

Don't make it sound like it's a burden. That rings even more hollow than your friendship with Lohan.

Yet another tape of angry Mel Gibson berating Oksana Grigorieva with the most vile language possible has been released. What could possibly provoke such rage?

Who knows, but the guy needs serious mental help, ASAP.

We've already heard Mel go off on his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his eighth child in two previous phone calls she clandestinely taped. Now a third has been leaked.

In it, he uses ethnic and sexist slurs in a rampage only slightly less crazed than the tape leaked Monday in which he threatens to kill Oksana and admits beating her.

Similar to the first Mel Gibson rant released online, the embattled star hurls offensive slurs left and right, referring to a Latino housekeeper/worker as a “wetback.”

  • Mean Mel
  • Oksana G.

What the heck is wrong with Mel Gibson?!

That term is one of the nicer ones used by Mel in the six-minute tape, during which the deeply troubled actor often accuses Oksana of cheating and using him.

Whether she did cheat on Mel or not is unclear, and it is worth mentioning that Oksana could have edited these tapes to paint him in the worst possible light.

This doesn't change the fact that he's a misogynistic a$$hole under investigation for domestic abuse, but there's got to be more to this than we know now.

Anyway, there are too many pieces of shocking dialogue to count, but this one in particular stands out, right before the terrifying phone conversation ends:

Mel: Go look after my child!
Oksana: She’s my child too.
Mel: Yeah I know, unfortunately you c*** w****! I hope she doesn’t turn out like you!

Disgusting and scary. Follow the jump to listen to the full six-minute tirade by Mel Gibson. Be forewarned once again that this is unsettling, awful stuff ...

George Steinbrenner, who bought a declining New York Yankees team in 1973 and left an indelible mark on sports' most storied franchise, has passed away.

A heart attack is believed to be the cause. He was 80.

In an often tumultuous reign, in which he promised to stay out of the team's daily affairs but often did not, the Bronx Bombers won seven of their 27 titles.

Just as impressively, he build the franchise into a global powerhouse valued at over $1 billion. Having retired to Tampa, Fla., he turned 80 this past July 4.

A rep for the family said in a statement:

"It is with profound sadness that the family of George M. Steinbrenner III announces his passing. He passed away this morning in Tampa, Fla., at age 80."

George Steinbrenner, left, with former N.Y. City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

"He was an incredible and charitable man. Funeral arrangements will be private. There will be an additional public service with details to be announced."

Steinbrenner’s death comes nine months after the Yankees won their first World Series title since 2000, beating the Phillies at the new Yankee Stadium.

The magnate, whose infamous, blustering ways lessened considerably in recent years, had been in failing health since 2006, rarely appearing in public.

Introduced at the inaugural game of the new stadium he constructed in April 2009, he received an ovation, at which point shoulders shook and he cried.

Rest in peace, George.

To the credit of Edward Norton, he's taking the high road.

Recently let go from The Avengers, and blasted by the movie studio for his lack of "creativity and collaborative spirit," the actor has posted the following message on his Facebook account.

In it, he expresses gratitude to his fans:

“As most of you know, I don’t like to talk much about the business of making movies because it means a lot to me to protect the audience’s fullest enjoyment of the “magic” that films can have. But I am so appreciative of the outpouring of support from fans of the Hulk and the Avengers that I feel it would be rude not to respond. So here goes: It seems it won’t work out for me to continue playing Bruce Banner for Marvel in The Avengers.”

“I sincerely hoped it could happen and be great for everyone, but it hasn’t turned out as we all hoped. I know this is disappointing to many people and that makes me sad. But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer and even more so for giving me the chance to be a part of the Hulk’s long and excellent journey.

“And I really can’t thank the fans enough for how much enthusiasm you’ve sent my way about what Louis [Leterrier, The Incredible Hulk's director] and I tried to do in our turn with the legend. It means a lot to me. I grew up with Banner and Hulk and have been a fan of every incarnation.

I’m really proud, and very blessed, to have been one of them and will be thrilled to see him live on through other actors. Hulk is bigger than all of us, that’s why we love him, right?"

With Norton out of the picture, attention now turns to which actor might take on this role in the 2012 movie. Rumored candidates include Mark Ruffalo, Joaquin Phoenix and Billy Crudup.

Spencer Pratt has been very ... well, non-Spencer Pratt lately.

Uncharacteristically absent from the spotlight, he hasn't been seen in public in over a month, or on The Hills, where he and Heidi Montag were cut loose without any explanation from the show, which ends its six-season run tonight.

Might he be planning a surprise - and unwelcome - public foray this evening? Implying he may crash The Hills finale party, he Tweeted on Tuesday:

“Booking my room @Roosevelt Hotel Hollywood now that I have no place to live I think i should just move in there today (to) stay near the action.”

No place to live? We know he looks like a homeless man, but is Spencer Pratt really out on the street? At least he's comfortable as a mountain man ...

Wouldn't you know it, the Hollywood Roosevelt is the site of tonight’s finale party, for which Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are not on the guest list.

Kristin Cavallari, Brody Jenner and other stars will be on hand, along with the show's two most famous alumnae, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port.

No Speidi, though, after clashes with Hills creator Adam DiVello on and off set led to an unceremonious, unexplained parting of ways with the show.

Heidi's also moving forward with plans to divorce him, supposedly.

Cavallari calls the situation “sad,” and says as far as she knows, no one has spoken to either member of the duo since they last filmed together.

“I’ve reached out to Heidi,” says Kristin, who fixed up Speidi. “I can’t get a hold of her because she changed her number. I'd love to talk to her.”

Round one of the Melissa Etheridge/Tammy Lynn Michaels split has gone to the singer.

Following Etheridge's motion to dissolve her partnership with Michaels, the latter filed for full custody of the pair's children and stated that her ex has not been supporting her or the kids "financially and otherwise."

However, a L.A. County Superior Court judge shot down Tammy's request for $25,000 this week, as Etheridge's attorney convinced the court his client is, indeed, footing the bills for her family.

"[Tammy] is being completely supported by Melissa and has been since they separated," Neal Hersh told People. "She’s being well-provided for and then some, as are the children, which are Melissa’s first priority."

Hersh says these expenses include $2,000 a month, along with household bills and a car lease. Tammy's legal team doesn't dispute these facts.

Steven Knowles says "Melissa is paying various sundry expenses," but adds that his client and her three-year old twins are "destitute... It doesn’t put money in her wallet. Literally she has no cash."

Etheridge and Michaels were together for nine years. Sadly, it seems this break-up will get uglier before it gets any better.

After last week, The Bachelorette had its work cut out for it.

Not only were the stakes high for Ali with hometown dates looming, but the Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi clash made for riveting, must-see train wreck TV.

The hometown dates themselves last night? They all went well. Like, really well. She picked some good guys (mostly). Awesome for Ali, a little boring for us.

Still, there was plenty to like about the episode, and plenty of hometown drama for us to go over here in THG's patented plus-minus rundown of events ...

Roberto Martinez. Baseball uniform. Shameless, ABC. Plus 7.

Minus 3 for the wasted potential of baseball/dating puns (second base? eh?), but Plus 5 for Ali toeing the line between girly and sporty perfectly. So cute.

Beautiful Ali F.

Who will win the heart of The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky?

The Bachelorette star? So what. Roberto Sr. wants to make sure Ali is good enough for his son. Plus 4 for him taking it to her, and for her handling it well.

If Roberto is the favorite, Chris Lambton is a close second. Ali Fedotowsky does seem to be a perfect fit in Chris' Cape Cod home. Bay State 4 life!! Plus 6.

Minus 5 for the slight overkill regarding Chris' mom. Yes, it's a big part of who he is, and he's very sincere. It's the producers who overdo this narrative.

How much do you want to swap your own family for Chris'? Plus 8.

The Lambtons are so, so genuine ... which ABC exploits with the bit about the mom "up there helping orchestrate all this"? It's The Bachelorette!! Minus 7.

Kirk DeWindt's date is the most awkward, as it involves two eccentric families and one taxidermist. But Plus 3, because everyone's really nice. It is Wisconsin.

  • Kirk DeWindt Picture
  • Frank Neuschaefer Picture

At elimination time, you knew it was coming down to Kirk or Frank.

The women in Kirk's life are salt-of-the-earth folks who clearly love Ali. The only problem is Kirk himself. Nice as he is, there's just something missing. Minus 2.

"Sometimes love is a complicated thing." - Frank Neuschaefer. Deep. How can this man not be a writer when contemplative musings like this flow so easily? Plus 5.

Frank really needs a new look. Not only are his glasses too small for his face, is that a cardigan over a wife-beater? He's like Mr. Rogers meets The Situation. Minus 7.

On a similar note, the fancy dresses don't work on Ali Fedotowsky. She can totally pull off anything, but more baseball jerseys, fewer pink flowery gowns! Minus 4.

Plus 6 for the grainy, dream-like flashback footage during host-pimp Chris Harrison's fireside chat with Ali ... makes Roberto and Chris look even more dreamy, no?

Again, Frank. Is that a tux and a sweatshirt at the rose ceremony? Minus 3.

If The Bachelorette spoilers are to be believed, we know who's in the final two. If the promos for next week are to be believed, Ali may be paying a second visit to Kirk's father's basement ... to stuff Frank's corpse in that freezer. Plus 8.

TOTAL: +13. SEASON: +143.

Roses: Roberto, Chris, Frank. Out: Kirk.

Who should Ali Fedotowsky choose?

Ah, so this is why he showed up at the London premiere of Eclipse.

While we're always happy to see the cute mug of Joe Jonas, we were perplexed by his presence at last month's event. Turns out, he's less a fan of The Twilight Saga in general than he is of a specific aspect of it:

Ashley Greene.

Sources tell OK! Weekly the two stars have grown close over the last few weeks, as they attended a King of Leon concert together recently and "there was definitely something going on, but it’s not serious," says an insider.

  • Actress on Tour
  • Joe J.

Another source - who refers to Green as a "maneater" - says Joe is "smitten" with the actress, but the feelings aren't exactly reciprocated: “I think he wants it to be more than she does right now."

Jonas is coming off a break-up with Demi Lovato, while Greene has been linked romantically to guitarist Jared Followill. If these two ever did get together, they'd have solid nickname potential.

Gonas? Jeene? We could get behind either option.
