Following shocking Bachelor spoilers about her alleged hookup with a crew member, Rozlyn Papa has come forward to deny rumors of "inappropriate behavior."

"I did not have a sexual relationship with a producer on the show," the 28-year-old model, who is believed to be get the boot next week, told Radar Online.

Promos for The Bachelor tease (and ABC has even sort of addressed) the scandal that will lead to the dismissal of a contestant on the January 11 episode.

But Rozlyn Papa insists she did nothing wrong.

"What they mean by inappropriate relationship is not what inappropriate relationship means in the real world," she said. "I did have a relationship with someone on [The Bachelor] that didn't benefit them. We remained close but we are not dating."

"This is a TV show and made for entertainment, but it is a far cry from reality," Rozlyn continued. "I know that things on television weren't always as they seemed, but I really had no idea the extent of the show manipulation."

COME TO PAPA: You'd get a rose from us any day, Rozlyn!

A couple of days ago, ABC dropped the bomb that an unnamed female contestant had an "inappropriate relationship" with one of The Bachelor's producers.

We hear the single mom became livid with the show for not letting her talk to her son, and the "affair" was manufactured as a means of cutting her loose.

Sources say Rozlyn Papa did become close with a producer on the reality show, and that he even admitted feelings for her. But nothing actually happened.

As usual, the network will use crafty editing to make the situation appear worse than it actually was, and is issuing vague statements about the episode:

"It was an incident that we've never had to deal with before. It was tough for everyone, crew members, the women and Jake," host-pimp Chris Harrison said.

"Hopefully we can quickly move past this and it won't dominate the season. But definitely everyone will see what happens." Yes, definitely everyone will.

He did not mention Rozlyn Papa by name.

For her part, Roz says she has no regrets about her conduct, and certainly has nothing against the show's star, hunky pilot Jake Pavelka: "He is SO cute!"

UPDATE: The episode in which Rozlyn was kicked off The Bachelor has now aired (as of January 11). Who do you believe, her or the show? Vote below:

Michael Jackson had planned a 50-show comeback in London in the summer of 2009. Thanks to Dr. Conrad Murray, he never got a chance to perform.

Just the same, his untimely death made the King of Pop as popular as ever. He ranked as the top-selling artist of 2009 with 8.2 million albums sold.

Michael Jackson, Children

According to Nielsen SoundScan, that's nearly double No. 2 finisher, Taylor Swift, who at least beat all living musicians with a huge 4.6 million sold.

Jackson died June 25, just weeks before he was to return to the stage. His rehearsal footage has been made into a double CD and film, This Is It.

Michael Jackson dominated 2009 music sales after passing away.

Rounding out the top five were The Beatles (3.2 million), Susan Boyle (3.1 million) and Lady Gaga (2.8 million). Other interesting year-end figures:

  • Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream just missed being the #1 album of 2009, falling 100,000 copies behind Swift's Fearless. MJ's Number Ones was third.
  • Lady Gaga's The Fame was the overall top-selling digital album, selling 461,000 units online alone (and 2.2 million in all, the fourth best of '09).
  • The Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" was the top digital track, with 4.7 million downloads, followed by their "I Gotta Feeling," at 4.4 million.
  • In total sales of the 2000s, Eminem won with 32.2 million, beating out The Beatles, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith and Britney Spears at Nos. 2-5.

The New York Post's Page Six is reporting this morning that the abrupt hospitalization of Artie Lange last weekend came after a suicide attempt.

Lange, a comedian and Howard Stern sidekick, has not spoken publicly since. Stern alluded to, but did not read the Page Six report Thursday.

From the report, posted early this morning:

"Troubled comic Artie Lange was hospitalized Saturday after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, sources told The Post."

"Lange's frantic mom called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the bloodied funnyman, a law-enforcement source said."

"Lange sustained six 'hesitation wounds' and three deep plunges."

"A source close to Lange's management team confirmed that the Howard Stern sidekick stabbed himself, adding that his mom had come to visit him that day to drop off food. Surgeons managed to save Lange despite heavy bleeding."

At first, an obviously shaken-up Stern said he would read the Artie Lange story, then changed his mind several times before deciding not to.

"I'm sorry. I just feel sick about this, I don't know what to do," he said.

Stern talked about the troubled Lange for about 15 minutes. He referred to Lange's troubles with substance abuse (the cause of his absence from the show since early December) and reminisced about his early appearances on the show.

At times, Howard Stern almost sounded like he was eulogizing his sidekick, which he realized, adding, "I don't want this to sound like a eulogy."

Get well soon, Artie.

It sounds very much like Oprah Winfrey is preparing a show entirely dedicated to Adam Lambert.

Sorry, in Oprah-speak, we mean to say: It sounds very much like Oprah Winfrey is preparing a show entirely dedicated to Adam LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAmbert!

On the talk show host's website this week, a message has been posted that reads:

 Calling ALL Adam Lambert Fans!!! Did you vote for him as many times as you could? Were you holding your breath when the new American Idol was announced, hoping and praying it would be HIM?

If you are a HUGE fan of Adam Lambert's, email us now and tell us why you want to be in the audience for this once-in-a-lifetime show.

  • A Constant Interviewer
  • Oprah Photograph

The Big A might soon sit down with The Big O. We can't wait.

In October, the former American Idol finalist was interviewed by Winfrey for an episode about reality TV stars. Shen then invited him back to perform after his CD was released.

Sounds like that was more than a hollow invitation. Will you tune in for an all-Adam Lambert installment of the gabfest?

Doug Reinhardt better know how to take a hint, because Paris Hilton has decided it's time to tell celebrity gossip tabloids she's ready to settle down!

She's even throwing around a pseudo-deadline for Doug to get down on one knee - and not in the way the ho-tel heiress is used to getting on hers.

"I wouldn’t rule out a wedding in 2010," Paris told Life & Style. "With how amazing everything is going with us, I see a very bright and happy future."

Just makes you melt, doesn't it?

Paris and Her Bitch

Free of his cage, Doug Reinhardt awaits instructions from his master.

"He’s taught me how real love can feel," Hilton said. "Doug’s taught me how to grow up and become more domestic, as in not going out as much as I used to."

The two broke up over the summer, but got back together and have only had one melee we know of at her house since, so you know things are going better.

It seems like Doug, who previously dated Lauren Conrad, may be getting ready to take things to the next level with the socialite too. He told the magazine:

"Paris is the most beautiful girl in the world. I am so in love with her - I feel like I’m the luckiest guy in the world. She is gorgeous, smart, funny and kind. My family loves her, and she would make the perfect wife."

Can we pencil in a date now?

Susie Ogren does not qualify as one of Tiger Woods' mistresses.

He was not married at the time they "dated," and he never even tapped that (much to his chagrin). Just the same, Susie's got some interesting gossip about Tiger!

A new National Enquirer article contains several new revelations in Tiger Woods' unfolding scandal, including allegations from Ogren that Woods used drugs.

According to the publication, which was the first to print allegations of Woods' affair with Rachel Uchitel, in 1999 the golfer sought the company of Susie Ogren.

At the time, the woman sold drinks on a golf course Woods frequented. Standard. Ogren says she accompanied Woods and several friends to dinner one night.

That's when the "little while pills" came out.

Susie Ogren is the latest to tell a tawdry Tiger tale.

Ogren claims she and Tiger each took ecstasy that night. Susie says:

"I'm sure Tiger was hoping it would turn me on so he could get me into bed, and he took the pill so casually that it seemed to me he was used to doing it."

Woods soon walked off and "seemed angry," however, and Ogren says she and Woods never had sex. That makes her one of the lucky few in the U.S.

Susie says she "dated" Tiger Woods on several other occasions after that, but that the two never became sexually intimate, which is a little surprising.

Woods married Elin Nordegren in 2004. He has two small children with her and had dalliances with many, many women over the past couple of years.

Susie Ogren never slept with Tiger Woods. Not that he didn't try, she claims. She also says she observed Woods taking ecstasy and looking like he'd done so before.

This is exactly what the world needs: another member of the Kardashian family.

Just a few months after her utterly contrived, publicity-based wedding to Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian isn't making any secret of her desire to procreate before the couple's inevitable divorce end of the year.

During a radio interview with 104.3 MY FM's Valentine in the Morning yesterday, Khloe said: "I want to so badly! That's a goal for me."

And how might Kardashian achieve that aim? By following the actions of the person sitting across from her at each week's reality show script reading. So long, birth control pills!

"I'm not doing anything to prevent [pregnancy]," Khloe said. "I want to, we both want to, we're in an ideal situation."

Future Parents?

Khloe added that Odom purchased a pregnancy test for her on New Year's Day because she was nauseous.

Alas, the results were negative and the universe will have to live without another Kardashian spawn for at least nine more months. By that time, Vanessa Lopez will likely have stolen Lamar away.

Taylor Swift is pretty much every person on the planet's choice.

The singer continued her award-winning ways by nabbing Favorite Female Artist at last night's People's Choice Awards. But there's one honor Swift has not walked away with yet:

Champion of a Fashion Face-Off against Demi Lovato.

She has the chance today, however, as these young singers are matched up against one another. Each looked pretty on the red carpet, but only one can be crowned the winner. You tell us who it should be...

  • Demi Photograph
  • Everyone's Choice

Who was prettier on the red carpet?
