For a mere $1,000, you can attend an event honoring the late Brittany Murphy and line Simon Monjack's pockets support the Brittany Murphy Foundation.

Forgive us for being skeptical, but when the late star's husband launched the foundation last Thursday, we couldn't help but wonder what he's really up to.

Something about that dude is just shady.

Yes, the Brittany Murphy Foundation is dedicated to arts education for kids. Yes, Monjack says he started the non-profit with $1 million of his own money.

But would it surprise you if as head of the foundation, Simon Monjack paid himself a nice six-figure salary for his time? All tax-free of course? Just asking.

That's just us being skeptical. We have no proof that's true. But an Us source says "Everyone thinks it's very tacky that he's making it so much about money."

Monjack is requesting donations of $1,000 per person and $10,000 per corporation to attend the event, taking place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.

For once, Monjack has yet to comment. He has been a talk show and magazine staple since his wife's death in an effort to clear her name (and his own).

Murphy was found dead December 20 at the age of 32. The results of the toxicology report to determine the star's cause of her death are still pending.

Actor Justin Mentell, perhaps best known for his starring role on Boston Legal, died in a car accident in rural Waukegan, Illinois yesterday morning.

He was just 27 years old.

Mentell passed away when his Jeep swerved off a steep embankment and hit two trees at about 8:30 a.m. The actor was not wearing a seatbelt.

Justin Mentell portrayed lawyer Garrett Wells on Boston Legal from 2005-2006; more recently, he appeared as Terrell in the 2009 film G-Force.

R.I.P. Justin Mentell (1982-2010).

Born in Austin, Tex., Mentell was also an accomplished athlete who was a former member of the U.S. Junior National Speedskating team.

Our condolences go out to his loved ones.

Sad news like this tends to happen in bunches. Mentell's death follows the passing of former NFL star Jay Novacek's wife LeAnne and news of Phil Harris of Deadliest Catch falling into a coma after a stroke. We'll be hoping for Phil's recovery.

Kim Kardashian really needs to get a life. Or at least a baby.

Granted, she'll parade that poor child to every publicity op she can found, just like sister Kourtney, but at least she'll be doing something with her life.

Kris and Kim at LAX

The alternative - while one sister is off profiting from her marriage and the other from her child - appears to be for Kim to sit back and Tweet pictures of herself in a bikini. Or critique fellow celebrities on the red carpet.

Based on ridiculous outfits such as this, what makes Kim Kardashian qualified to judge others?

That's what Kardashian has taken to her blog to do, as she posted the following Grammy Award opinions yesterday:

Beyonce: 100 percent my pick for best dressed of the night. This Stephane Rolland dress is so gorgeous and her eye makeup works perfectly with the Egyptian feel. I also love the side part in her hair and the subtle glitter highlights. She always looks flawless and I love that she flaunts her curves!

Miley: Miley's Herve Leger dress was totally cute and age-appropriate. Some teens try to take themselves too seriously, and I love that Miley just has fun with her fashion and always stays true to her individual style.

Taylor Swift: Love this Kaufman Franco dress on Taylor! This is a hard dress to pull off because the sparkly fabric accentuates every curve, but she is tall and has a really slender frame so it works. Plus she wouldn't be Taylor Swift without her glitter, right? Doesn't she always look so classy!?

Sure, THG posted a series of fashion face-offs yesterday, too. But here's the difference between our staff and Kim: We know we have no life!

It's a question that surfaced last summer and continues to confound the masses: Does Lady Gaga have man parts? In other words, is she a hermaphrodite?

Video filmed at the UK's Glastonbury festival, coupled with her androgynous act and suggestive lyrics, gave birth to the hermaphrodite rumors in August.

Gaga For New Year's

As a blog that reports celebrity news and gossip 24/7, we've certainly heard crazier rumors. But what's really surprising is the staying power of this one.

Perhaps that's how she wants it. Speaking coyly on the topic with Barbara Walters last month, Gaga acknowledged that androgyny is part of her appeal.

Now, following her eye-opening performance at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, the question is once again front and center: Is fair Lady Gaga part man?

Vote below in our survey below and tell us what you think...

Does Lady Gaga really have man parts?

Phil Harris, captain of one of the vessels featured on the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch, makes a habit of survival under the most challenging circumstances.

We can only hope he'll prove his near-unparalleled toughness once again and bounce back from the severe stroke that landed him in the hospital and in a coma.

Harris is "resting comfortably," but suffered a stroke while in port offloading his vessel, the 128-foot Cornelia Marie, according to the Discovery Channel website.

Capt. Phil has been at the helm of the Cornelia Marie for an impressive 18-year span and has two sons, Josh and Jake, who work as deckhands on the boat.

Capt. Phil Harris suffered a stroke recently.

Both are with Harris in the hospital, according to the network, and on behalf of their ailing dad, they "thank everyone for their heartfelt thoughts and prayers."

Now in its sixth season, Deadliest Catch follows the adventures of seven crabbing vessels and crews during the Alaskan king crab season in the Bering Sea.

The Aleutian Islands port of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, is their base of operations. Here's hoping one of the fleet's best-known figures is back in action soon.

The Jersey Shore cast just can't keep its pants on - on or off camera.

According to Radar Online, photos and video of Snooki nude have been obtained by someone and are for sale. Pics and videos are being shopped to media outlets.

Now Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, is notoriously unlucky in love. Now it appears she’s supplied a self-taken preview of what a potential boyfriend could be seeing.

Somehow we don't suspect it will fetch top dollar. After all, if you're trying to hawk pics of a 4'10" Oompa Loompa naked, you're really going after a niche market.

Even if you do want to see Snooki naked, just go to Karma every Wednesday night from Memorial Day-Labor Day. She falls out of her "dress" on a routine basis.

Snooki Polizzi Pic

For the right price, you could own nude pics of this goddess.

Snooki is not the first of the Jersey Shore gang to be tied to a nude photo story. Just last week, we reported that there are pics of J-Woww nude up for sale too.

Once again, do you really need to shell out big bucks for that? Just spend $4.95 on one of those gross bodybuilding magazines, it's pretty much the same thing.

As for Nicole Polizzi, the stills and video show her "wearing only a smile." In one photo she is in her bedroom, on her knees, one hand on the ground and the other holding the bed frame. She is looking at the camera with her head tilted slightly.

Her nail polish is plainly visible. Another shot is "too graphic to describe."

Please, try to projectile vomit away from the computer screen.

Looks like Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko are officially a couple ... or at least good friends who accompany each other to things like movie premieres.

Originally seen together in Miami over New Year's, the two were spotted (and looking hot) at the "Best of Musical Gala" in Hamburg, Germany Saturday night.

As you can see, there's a bit of a height difference. The Ukrainian boxing champ and actress may seem to have little in common, but they are making it work.

Here's Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko ...

What can these two see in each other? While on the surface, this couple makes less sense than last night's Heroes, we're not judging. To each their own!

We know John Edwards has no morals, but never took him for a petty thief.

While this latest piece of news is nowhere near as scandalous as the John Edwards sex tape, it is but another strange piece of the fallen politician's bizarre saga.

The Orange County, N.C., sheriff's office just released last week a copy of a report alleging a "domestic between spouses and larceny of wallet" in October 2008.

The location of the alleged theft? The home of John and Elizabeth Edwards.

In the report, Elizabeth describes how John came home to eat dinner with his children after a sports event. Elizabeth told him he had no business being there.

Moments later, John Edwards challenged his wife and said the house was his, too. Then Elizabeth Edwards said she saw her husband take her wallet and leave.

Elizabeth Edwards and John Edwards

The train wreck that is John Edwards seems to worsen daily.

Elizabeth said her wallet contained $320, credit cards and a phone. John went down to "the barn," an adjoining structure that includes a full-size basketball court, for several minutes before beginning to leave, according to officials.

"As Mr. Edwards was preparing to leave, he was asked to give the wallet back,” the official police report notes, “and he advised that he did not have it."

The report ends by giving Edwards – a former U.S. Senator, two-time presidential candidate and Democratic V.P. nominee – a new title: "suspect."

The report had been kept confidential at Elizabeth's request, as the documents’ release "could endanger the victims physical or mental well-being."

So ... John Edwards was not allowed in his own home, and rebelled after being kicked out by ganking his own wife's wallet? Eh, we can see that.

After all, this is a guy who knocked up Rielle Hunter while running for President of the U.S., and after Elizabeth got cancer. Nothing is off limits.
