Kate Gosselin's marriage may be in divorce court, her clothing line sacked and her cookbook shelved. But her star power hasn't entirely eroded yet.

She's been invited by Maria Shriver to the Annual Women's Conference.

The nation's "premiere forum" for women promotes "empowerment, inspiration and education," helping them become "architects for change."

Also on the list for the October event in Sacramento, Calif.? Katie Couric, Kelly Preston, Cindy McCain, Elizabeth Edwards and Madeleine Albright.

An inspirational architect for change like Kate should fit right in.

California's first lady said it wasn't even her idea to invite the mom of eight to attend. Nor was it her husband, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's.

Maria Shriver said that the couple's teenage daughters, who are fans of Jon & Kate Plus 8, suggested she ask the TLC star to come to the event.

Also noteworthy is that the invites were sent out five months ago, before the family was regularly splashed across celebrity gossip tabloids.

Think they wish they could take a mulligan on that one now?

Hey, at least Kate Gosselin and Elizabeth Edwards can share notes on their respective home wreckers, Deanna Hummel and Rielle Hunter.

Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman plans to marry his step-granddaughter and possible mistress E'Dena Hines, family sources tell the National Enquirer.

The actor's nearly decade-long affair with his step-granddaughter, 27, hit the tabloids last month. E'Dena Hines is the grandchild of Morgan's first wife.

Morgan Freeman Wins!

He and his now-estranged second wife, Myrna Colley-Lee, raised her.

The long-secret relationship with Hines likely led to the breakup of their marriage, say sources close to both Morgan Freeman and Myrna Colley-Lee.

That's bad enough. But today, The Enquirer reports that Freeman and Hines are planning to get  married after Morgan's contentious divorce battle is over!

"Morgan has led her to believe that he wants to marry her," a family insider told the celebrity tabloid. "Becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E'Dena's goal."

Myrna, 68, admits she and Morgan have not shared a bed since 2001, and that they had an open marriage - with both Morgan and Myrna having other partners.

But she probably didn't think that included E'Dena Hines.

When Myrna realized they were intimate, she became so enraged that she threatened to sue E'Dena as "correspondent, as an adulterer, in my marriage."

Heidi Pratt, a.k.a. Heidi Montag, is proud of her figure.

We're glad to hear that, since she certainly spent enough money on plastic surgery to alter it completely from the reasonably cute girl she once was.

A Giant Boob

The Hills star, who's gonna be doing a "tasteful" naked Playboy spread in September, has plans to share her fitness secrets in The Heidi Workout.

"Staying fit is something I'm very passionate about," Pratt, who officially changed her last name from Montag after marrying Spencer Pratt. "I work out with a strength and conditioning coach 90 minutes a day, five days a week."

She's detailing her routine of "full-body, intense resistance exercises" in a new downloadable workout series, developed with trainer Chad Waterbury.

The series features full-body exercises, executed as rapidly as possible, "so you burn fat faster," says Waterbury, who does both light and heavy weights (75 lbs.!) with Heidi Pratt to give her body "a hard look with a feminine shape."

She's hard to look at, all right ...

The Heidi Workout will also offer nutritional advice, based on guidelines Waterbury gave to the 22-year-old TV star. She avoids all "white" foods like carbs, but fills up instead with lean meats including grass-fed beef - Heidi loves steak!

She also needs a steady diet of vegetables, fruits and attention.

"Heidi has a really healthy appetite," Waterbury adds.

Not that she needed to shed weight. At 5'1" and 100 pounds, the reality star wanted to put on curves. "When she came to me her butt was really flat and she wanted to make it bigger," says Waterbury. "Now, it's nice, shapely and round."

Amazing what a couple of large silicone implants will do for you. Nice to see the fame whore believes in fake boobs, but not in birth control or fame.

The lingering debate over who is the biological father of Michael Jackson's kids did not exactly get answered yesterday by Dr. Arnold "Arnie" Klein.

On Good Morning America, he offered the cryptic non-answer that he is not the father ... to the best of his knowledge. That was a head-scratcher.

Last night, Arnold Klein took a similar route on Larry King Live, though he did elaborate a little bit, admitting that he donated sperm at one point - to a sperm bank, and not to Michael Jackson directly, he maintains adamantly.

As far as he knows, he is not the father of Jackson's children. End of story. The dermatologist said he's willing to submit to a DNA test to establish paternity.

Us Weekly has stated as fact that Klein is the biological father of Prince and Paris Jackson. No other celebrity news publication has confirmed this.

Meanwhile, Dr. Arnold Klein thinks Jackson and ex-wife Debbie Rowe (Klein's former assistant) did consummate their marriage. TMI there, Arnie.

As for the King of Pop's drug use, Klein insists he is not one of the five doctors currently under investigation for supplying Michael Jackson with dangerous prescription drugs that many believe led to his demise in some form.

But Dr. Arnie Klein, Michael Jackson's longtime friend, does now admit to giving him Demerol - one of the strong painkillers Jackson sought out.

Klein says it was only "on occasion" to sedate the pop legend.

Asked about Diprivan, the brand name for Propofol, the hospital-only anesthesia found in Jackson's house when he died, Klein said he was aware Michael was using it, but did not prescribe it, and wouldn't even know how to use it.

He also says he warned Michael Jackson of its dangers.

Here's Arnie Klein on Larry King Live ...

Debbie Rowe says she will likely fight for custody of Prince Michael I, 12, and Paris Jackson, 11 - her two children with Michael Jackson - at a July 13 hearing.

But six years ago, Rowe said she never wanted to be a mother.

"Parenting is an art; you earn it," Rowe said. "Because you give birth and impregnate someone does not automatically give you the title of mother or father."

"You have to earn that title. My kids don’t call me mom because I don’t want them to," she went on. "They are Michael’s children. It’s not that they are not my children, but I had them because I wanted him to be a father."

After she and Michael Jackson divorced in 1999 after three years of marriage, Debbie agreed to give up her parental rights, insisting he was a good father.

Debbie Rowe also lambasted critics who claimed she abandoned her kids.

"They say, 'I can't believe she left her children.' Left them? I did not leave my children. My children are with their father where they are supposed to be."

Asked why the children are not with her, she said, "I didn't do it to be a mother. Like I said, you earn that title. I did not change diapers. I didn’t get up in the middle of the night - even when I was there. Michael did it all."

"I am telling you that he is the most brilliant father. Almost before the baby needed something, he knew what it was. And that's not for me."

Rowe - who insists she is the biological mother of Prince and Paris Jackson - added that she never wanted children before she wed Michael.

"If it hadn't been for how much I love him and because of our relationship, I would never have had children," she said. "And how spoiled am I? I get to go through the whole experience with a loving, caring person. I'm the one who feels selfish."

Note to Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan:

This is how you handle a wardrobe malfunction!

At Tuesday's London premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood, star Emma Watson accidentally gave red carpet fans a flash of her underwear while adjusting her floor-length gown in a driving rain storm.

It's okay to peek, fellas. The actress is over 18...

Following the incident, Watson appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman and calmly, maturely addressed the mistaken peep show.

"This was a small wardrobe malfunction that happens," she said. "I actually don't remember it happening. At least I'm wearing underwear!"

Making the media rounds to promote her new movie, I Love You, Beth Cooper, Hayden Panettiere is hitting all the major New York-based talk shows.

Luckily for NYC residents, the Heroes hottie is also giving people a chance to see her even if they can't get to a TV to watch Good Morning America.

It's nice to see that ogling 19-year-olds is not reserved simply for Hayden Panettiere pics online. Middle-aged creeps can stare at her in person too!

Check out this dude who happened to be driving by as Hayden stopped to have her picture taken. Talk about being in the right place at the right time ...

HEY, BABY!! Seriously, after seeing Hayden Panettiere's outfit, who can blame a dude for craning his neck to catch a glimpse as he speeds by. Oooga. [Photo: Fame Pictures]

They say ... love, it don't come eaaaaaaaasy. They also say there are two sides to every story, and The Bachelorette's Wes Hayden wants to make his known.

The Austin, Tex., singer's eight-episode stint on the ABC show came to an end Monday after all kinds of controversy over whether he just went on the show to promote his music, and/or whether he had/has a girlfriend back home.

He's been called every name in the book, and that's fine by him. But Wes Hayden says it's all bogus, and he is simply a victim of deceptive, false editing.

In an interview on an Austin radio station, he addressed the #1 rumor that has plagued the alleged singer but also his alleged girlfriend, Laurel Kagay.

"I had a girlfriend last summer. She's still a very good friend of mine. Every now and then we'll go out and do lunch or something like that. I mean, I did some work for her mom, I'm good friends with her family," Wes Hayden said.

"I just called [The Bachelorette producers] two weeks ago, and was like, 'Look. I don't care what y'all do to me. You can say I'm the worst guy in the world and I'm here for publicity, that I've got a girlfriend. But don't mention anybody's name."

"As soon as you mention her name, people in Austin are going to know her, because we dated for a long time. Sure enough, they mentioned her name the very next day."

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, according to Wes Hayden.

As for his nasty statement after being booted by Jillian Harris, in which he boasted, "I'm the only guy in The Bachelorette history who's made it to the top four with a girlfriend," Wes says his limo comments were completely butchered.

"They don't play what I say after that. I said, 'Only guy in Bachelorette history to make it to the top four with a girlfriend. Get real, dude. If I had a girlfriend, I'd be home with her right now, and I wouldn't be putting up with this $h!t.'"

"They did stuff like that all the way through. They take whatever they want and just play what they want. It's not rocket science. I promise. I do have a career. I've been a musician 14 years. I would not go on national TV and sink myself."

Wes does note that "there had to be drama, there had to be ratings" and that The Bachelorette chose him for it, otherwise "the show would have been boring."

But he has a word of advice for people considering going on reality TV.

"I think everybody needs to remember that this is a TV show, and it's here for ratings. If anybody wants to go on any kind of reality show they really need to consider what could happen to them, and think about it long and hard."

"If you do go on, don't say a whole lot, because they can pretty much do whatever they want. Basically when you sign up for a show like this you pretty much relinquish every right that you have," Wes Hayden lamented.

Love him or hate him, he did make Jillian Harris' journey a lot more fun to watch. Click to enlarge some of Wes Hayden's greatest hits ...

Carefully planned as it was, Tuesday's Michael Jackson memorial service was defined by the impromptu, closing moment when the late pop star's 11-year-old daughter, Paris Jackson, took to the stage of Los Angeles' Staples Center.

The adolescent girl, who has rarely if ever been seen by the public as the pop star's children were always shrouded in mystery, declared her love for her dad.

Paris's brief appearance "was not planned," Ken Ehrlich, producer of the tribute, said in an interview with CNN. "In fact, a lot of the show was not scripted."

"Music was laid out, but most of the speakers really spoke from their heart – people who knew Michael well – and I think that's what gave the show its heart."

Barely able to eke out the words as she trembled in front of the mic, the tearful Paris Jackson said before being enveloped by her many aunts and uncles:

"I just wanted to say ... Ever since I was born ... daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just want to say that I love him so much."

Paris Jackson's brief speech was the most poignant moment in an event full of them. Here she is with her aunts, uncles, and brothers Prince Michael I and II (Blanket).

Ehrlich also said that going into the tribute the Jackson family's request had been that "we don't want to do a TV show, we want to do a memorial service."

"We hope you got the feeling you were watching a memorial service."

We did - at least as much as we possibly could, given that it was a tribute for arguably the most famous person on the planet. May he rest in peace.

Here's the video of Paris Jackson's tearful goodbye to her father ...

Is Rumer Willis' guest-starring stint on 90210 a desperate attempt to garner ratings for this CW drama?

Perhaps.

But it's also a chance for some hot girl-on-girl action, according to star AnnaLynne McCord!

Because Willis is coming aboard 90210 as a lesbian character named Gia, the actress that portrays wild gal Naomi Clark has a storyline she (and every warm-blooded American male) would like to see go down:

"Naomi gets drunk, and she gets a little crazy," McCord told E! News. "Liam's watching. Naomi wants to experiment. And then a little lip-on-lip action with Rumer Willis can't hurt anybody, right? How fabulous would that be. They totally need to make it happen!"

It might not have worked on The OC, or any other show, but AnnaLynne McCord thinks some lesbian experimentation is perfect for 90210.
