Another season of The Bachelorette is officially upon us, and with it, another shocking scandal - and obligatory Bachelorette spoilers giving it away beforehand.

Naturally, one suitor of Ali Fedotowsky is singled out immediately as this season's Mr. There for the Wrong Reasons. You all must be familiar with the old adage:

There's one in every group of reality TV fame whores.

The guy in question Justin Rego, a pro wrestler with the stage name Rated-R. Really. Dude even wore a shirt with "Rated-R" across the chest when he met Ali.

Rihanna is rolling in her grave right now.

Apparently, Justin Rego's day of reckoning comes when Jessica Spillas contacts Ali Fedotowsky through Jessie Sulidis - who outed Rozlyn Papa on The Bachelor.

Confused yet?

Cute New Bachelorette

Ali Fedotowsky beware: One of your suitors has ulterior motives!

Spillas informs Ali Fedotowsky that she's Rego's girlfriend, and knew about and supported his decision to do The Bachelorette in order to further his career.

The reason Jessica Spillas comes forward? She discovers that Rego had been seeing another woman as well. Might as well humiliate that a$$ on television.

Needless to say, Ali is repulsed by this and Rated-R, who as of June 14 has advanced three episodes and sparked rage among the guys, gets booted. Brutal.

Our man Reality Steve has more details, but that's the gist. Aside from this scandal, bank on more trumped-up drama from the creative ABC writing staff.

Thanks to him, we've even got the skinny on what's to come at the FINAL ROSE CEREMONY, including who Ali does and does not pick at season's end.

Follow the jump for tons more Bachelorette spoilers from the season, from the full list of cast members to the order they're knocked off and much more ...

While it's possible Breaking Dawn may be filmed without Kellan Lutz or Ashley Greene, Twilight Saga fans can at least rest assured:

Robert Pattinson isn't going anywhere.

In fact, he'll soon be popping up everywhere, making the media rounds in anticipation of the June 30 Eclipse premiere. Look for Robert, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner to appear on Oprah tomorrow.

But look no further to simply gawk at Pattinson. He covers the latest issue of South Africa GQ, as does this breaking news: BEIGE IS BACK.

Okay. If you've watched 30 seconds of The City in your life, you know Olivia Palermo's "job" (term used loosely) at Elle is menial at best, and utterly pointless at worst.

Most jobs, especially in the world of fashion, are a bit less glamorous than you think. Still, there are deadlines, meetings, places to go, things to do, people to meet, etc.

City Port

That's why it's called work, in other words. Unless you're Olivia Palermo.

In last night's episode, "Professionally Dangerous," she proved very much so. Because for her, a job doesn't mean she shows up where and when she's supposed to.

Olivia was assigned (obviously) to interview Whitney Port for Elle.com.

But she didn't go to Whitney's thing because she wasn't feeling it, and hung with her real friends instead! That's what career is - doing whatever the f*%k you want!

BEYOND USELESS: Palermo sets the bar lower and lower each week.

To borrow one of our favorite Office Space quotes: So Olivia .... what would ya say ya DO here?! Nothing. Forget stirring the pot with Erin, she's just dead weight.

Commitments, accomplishments, reliability, even merely showing up - overrated really. One needn't have a reputation for any of the above to keep a job in 2010.

Not at one of the top fashion magazines, at least. At this point, it's clear Elle gave her a fake job for publicity, otherwise this would never happen. Minus 120.

A quick plus-minus recap of the rest ...

The photographer says shooting wars and Whitney's clothing line are both "extreme." A little much, but Plus 2 anyway for the heavy flirting going on. Hot!

After Olivia fails to show up, Erin Kaplan says she should be embarrassed. True, but that's as bad as it gets for O - complaints, not consequences. Minus 6.

A FAMILIAR EXPRESSION: Now if only Erin could/would fire her ...

Meanwhile, Roxy's out with Zach, and things are going pretty well, but for some reason, she can't stop talking about her dog in L.A. Dude, no one cares. Even.

Kelly to Whitney: "Take this bitch out. You have to let people who are toxic and dangerous to you know you’re going to f*%king fight back!" Plus 15. Thank you!

Sadly, Minus 5 'cause Whitney Port blows it. By not pinning her against a wall and pimp-slapping the $h!t out of her, she allows Olivia to just get up and leave.

Ever the disciplinarian, an angry Joe Zee forced Olivia to take Whit to lunch as penance. So he punishes her with more time away from work. Great. Minus 6.

TOTAL: -120. SEASON: -109.

Man, what a tease.

After hearing about a video that depicted Miley Cyrus giving Adam Shankman a lap dance at last year's wrap party for The Last Song, we were excited to watch it and lay into Miley like usual.

We had the puns all ready: Miley Cyrus? More like Miley SIN-rus!

Alas, the minute-long tape has now been leaked - and it's disappointingly tame. If parents truly yanked their kids from this gathering because Miley was acting too lewd, well, they really shouldn't show their children her "Can't Be Tamed" video.

Check out this scarcely dirty bit of dancing below.

The third episode of The Hills' final season reintroduced Brody Jenner and Kristin Cavallari as lovebirds. Because ... they used to date and we're out of other options?

Last night's episode, "Elephant in the Room," found these two pondering a staged reconnection, while he also pondered his supposed "crush" on Audrina Patridge.

Meanwhile, Spencer Pratt absolutely went off the rails at Holly Montag. Below, The Hollywood Gossip breaks down all the Hills action with its trademark +/- scale:

Kristin doesn't know if she likes being around Spencer. Does anyone? Plus 3.

Brody on Audrina and Ryan getting serious: "Whatever!" Brody is apparently a 'tween girl. Minus 4, because he's also being forced to care about Ryan by MTV.

Brody and Kristin are meant to be ... MTV decided this week.

We said this yesterday, but if you're parents to a seven-year-old, is there anything worse than a party thrown by Speidi? Were Tiger Woods' mistresses busy? Minus 5.

Audrina and Ryan are at the bowling alley. Audrina talks about Brody Jenner, her past and adds that Brody now has a crush on her. Ooh, the fake plot thickens! Plus 6.

It's time for "the talk" with Ryan. Plus 2, 'cause Ryan is just excited he's landed this gig on The Hills and retained any level of fame. Remember when he was a singer?

Audzo says every time she calls Heidi, Spencer is right there. Kristin Cavallari says Spencer is controlling her. Minus 3 for the girls being three years late to that party.

Spencer, when asked where Stephanie is: "I have a sister?" Plus 10.

Spencer, when Holly Montag dares defend their mother, Darlene, for speaking her mind about Heidi Montag's plastic surgery: "You can leave my property." Plus 11.

Spencer Pratt is seriously losing it.

Ryan wants their relationship to be drama free and the "best relationship ever." Dude, you're fake dating a girl on The Hills. That's not happening. Minus 27.

Brody calls Enzo's party the most awkward of his life. So true. Plus 9.

Kristin Cavallari asks Brody about Audrina over a drink in a typical, staged Hills discussion where they pretend to be conflicted about relationships. Minus 19.

Spencer Pratt, ever eloquent, repeats his earlier claim that Heidi's mom is "just a vagina" who let Heidi come into the world, but is nothing special. Plus 40.

As Holly leaves, Spencer shouts at her that he'll call the cops next time. "Keep walking ... Nobody wants you in Hollywood." Okay, that's enough. Minus 12.

TOTAL: +11. SEASON: +51. Boring as the Kristin-Brody-Audrina "drama" is, Spencer made this episode of The Hills. Dude has serious issues. We love it.

In last week's edition of Newsweek, Ramin Setoodeh wrote an article that made one controversial statement and asked one controversial question:

First, he said, gay actors cannot pull of straight roles. Then, he asked: Why is there no A-list gay movie star?

Kristin Chenoweth fired back at the essay, citing Setoodeh's examples of failed straight roles (e.g. Cynthia Nixon as Miranda in Sex and the City) as "sloppy," and referring to the entire piece as "bigoted and factually inaccurate."

Now, Glee creator Ryan Murphy has taken his critique of the article even further: he's written an open letter, asking everyone to boycott Newsweek. In it, he says:

This article is as misguided as it is shocking and hurtful. It shocks me because Mr. Setoodeh is himself gay. But what is the most shocking of all is that Newsweek went ahead and published such a blatantly homophobic article in the first place…and has remained silent in the face of ongoing (and justified) criticism.

Would the magazine have published an article where the author makes a thesis statement that minority actors should only be allowed and encouraged to play domestics? I think not.

  • Newsweek Cover of Sarah Palin
  • Glee

Today, I have asked GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios to stand with me and others and ask for an immediate boycott of Newsweek magazine until an apology is issued to Sean Hayes and other brave out actors who were cruelly singled out in this damaging, needlessly cruel, and mind-blowingly bigoted piece. An apology should also be issued to all gay readers of the magazine…steelworkers, parents, accountants, doctors, etc…proud hardworking Americans who, if this article is to be believed, should only identify themselves as “queeny” people (a word used by Setoodeh in the article) who stand at the back of the bus and embrace an outdated decades old stereotype.

Give me a call, Ramin... I’d love to hear from you. I’ll even give you a free copy of our Madonna CD, on which we cover “Open Your Heart,” a song you should play in your house and car on repeat.

Our take on Setoodeh's viewpoint?

Putting aside homophobic rhetoric and anything of that nature, he's simply incorrect. Off the top of our heads, we can come up with numerous gay actors that are widely accepted in straight roles (Nixon, Neil Patrick Harris on How I Met Your Mother, Cherry Jones on 24, Lily Tomlin on Damages).

It's difficult to make a serious point of any kind when your thesis is misguided. What do you think about gay actors in straight roles? Do you have any problem taking them seriously?

Mixing business with pleasure rarely works. For Britney Spears, it was just a question of which aspect of her relationship with Jason Trawick to cut out of her life.

She decided to part ways with him ... professionally, that is.

Jason Trawick remains Britney's boyfriend despite the end their professional partnership, a rep for the pop superstar confirmed to E! News yesterday.

Romance is a big reason for the severed agent partnership.

The two will "focus on their personal relationship." Aww ...

Britney, Jason Picture

Britney Spears is still so happy with Jason Trawick personally, as you can see. Well, actually she looks pretty miserable, but we'll assume they're happy if she says so.

The sometimes-off, sometimes-on duo have been dating for more than a year, with Trawick, who works for William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, commandeering Britney's romantic interests around March 2009. He repped her long before that.

Britney was just setting off on her Circus tour at the time.

We're happy they are working it out, or are at least making the effort. No doubt Jason has been good for Britney ... he's no Adnan Ghalib, but no one's perfect.

Nothing says rekindling a romance like divorce papers.

Yup, Larry King and Shawn Southwick are going to work it out. He's just checked out of the Beverly Hills hotel where he was staying and moved back home.

As of right now, Larry is back inside the home he shares with the wife and their two kids, and she's apparently thrilled to have the man of the house back.

Larry King and Shawn Southwick said in a statement:

"We love our children, each other, and being a family. That is all that matters. We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue being dedicated to each other. We want to thank our friends for their loyal love and support, for being there for us."

If you say so, guys.

Larry King and eighth wife Shawn Southwick are making it work!

The formerly estranged couple filed dueling divorce petitions April 14, following reports that Larry King had been nailing Shawn's sister Shannon Engemann.

Shawn was also romantically linked to Hector Penate, the kids' little league coach. This was pretty scandalous stuff and a reconciliation seemed unlikely.

But a few days later announced they were suspending the proceedings for two weeks, and attending counseling and attempting to smooth things over.

Looks like it worked out. For the time being, anyway.

Need a few examples that illustrate how far American Idol has fallen on season nine?

  • Fox now airs commercials for the remaining episodes that don't even focus on the contestants. Instead, they hype this as Simon's final season.
  • On last night's movie-themed edition, Casey James resorted to a rendition of "Mrs. Robinson" from The Graduate, in order to revive jokes about Kara's crush on him and distract from his lack of actual, finals-worthy ability.
  • Kara critiqued Lee's "Kiss From a Rose" with these vapid words: "It's one of most difficult songs to sing. But you can't take away from the fact that you are still great." Really? This is the final four. Isn't he supposed to be able to sing difficult songs at this point?
  • Former finalist Blake Lewis, blogging for USA Today, wrote: "The show is getting close to over and I am waiting for someone to have an amazing performance, but this year has been pretty boring, I must say. Hopefully someone will prove me wrong."

Amen, Blake. We've ranked last night's performances below, simply because we have to:

  1. Crystal Bowersox: Ellen said the evening got "Crystal-ized" with this rendition of "I'm Alright." Sadly, that pun was the highlight of the entire episode.
  2. Lee DeWyze: We summed him up above. The judges agreed his performance wasn't anything special, but basically admitted: Eh, you're better than Michael and Casey.
  3. Michael Lynche: Went with Michael Jackson's "Will You Be There" and did his usual connecting with the audience. At some point, though, viewers will have to realize that Big Mike's singing voice is nothing special.
  4. Casey James: The whole "Mrs. Robinson" thing was forced and lame. It's his time to go home.

WHO WAS YOUR FAVORITE PERFORMER?

  • Movie Song Rendition
  • Crystal Goes to the Movies
  • Surrounded by Fans
  • Casey and Michael

Somewhat predictably, Niecy Nash was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday after receiving the lowest scores from judges and viewers alike.

Voted off Dancing with the Stars after the eighth week, the How Clean is Your House host and actress on Reno 911 took the elimination well, and in stride.

In her exit interview, she says she was proud to make it this far as a 40-year-old mom of three against some of the great dancers remaining on the stage.

Tom, admitting he's a fan, complimented her on achieving moments of elegance with partner Louis Van Amstel, of which there were surprisingly many.

Her last request? That the band play something so that everyone can "get krunk." That's why Niecy Nash is awesome, and how you go out in style.

Niecy and Louis

Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel dance farewell.

Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke joined Niecy and Louis in the bottom two for the first time, which was fitting, given the two couples' lower Monday scores.

Whether he can skate by into the final three is another story.

Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough performed an encore of their perfect Paso Doble from the other night, which Tom deemed the best in the show's history.
