The Bachelor's Rozlyn Papa made quite an impression on viewers - and Jake Pavelka - on the first two episodes of the ABC reality show, emerging as a favorite.

That was until an "inappropriate relationship" with a staffer derailed her chances last night. But she says the scandal that got her get kicked off is a gigantic lie.

“It seems they want the ratings!” the model said.

Ya think?

Rozlyn Papa denies she "cheated" on the season’s star, hunky pilot Jake. Asked if she had sex with a member of The Bachelor crew, she says, “Absolutely not, no.”

She has adamantly denied an affair took place.

The show’s host Chris Harrison called the scandal “incredibly unfortunate” and said “horrible decisions were made.” According to Papa, the lies have taken a toll.

“This seeps into my personal life,” she says. “I have a 7-year-old little boy at home that I want to look up to me, and to have this blatant lie out there perpetuated by the show itself - it’s hurtful. It’s scary to think what my son will think of me.”

Papa admits being a “good friend” of the producer with whom she’s rumored to have had the affair, but says that gave her no advantage with Jake Pavelka.

“I would absolutely call him a friend,” she says.

“But I'm portrayed as a cheater,” she says. “It comes down to my son. Why would you go on national television and throw a mom under the bus like that?”

Who do you believe?

Last month, Lindsay Lohan went to India to film a moving documentary about child trafficking, which is set to air on the UK's BBC3 sometime this spring.

The first footage of LiLo abroad has recently been released on the web, showing us a couple of scenes from the forthcoming film Lindsay Lohan in India.

The documentary follows Lohan as she travels through the country to meet with young victims exploited by sweatshops and sex-trafficking operations.

"The whole situation is heartbreaking because the parents aren't necessarily in the wrong, the children are obviously not in the wrong," Lohan says.

"The traffickers are the ones in the wrong. Because they know what they're doing. And anyone that says that they don't know ... I mean, come on."

Indeed.

Why anyone would enlist Lindsay Lohan to do this, we have no clue. But we're glad she took time out of her busy schedule of being a train wreck.

According to source, Conan O'Brien has a message for NBC:

EFF YOU!

Appropriately, yet unfortunately, the red-headed comedian feels like the red-headed stepchild of late-night television after his network gave him The Tonight Show; thwarted any chances for success by sticking The Jay Leno Show at 10 p.m.; and then ended that experiment after five months and returned Leno to the 11:35 p.m. time slot.

No one has been jerked around this much since the last 12 guys that dated Lindsay Lohan.

Conan

As Conan weighs his options, reports say he's likely to leave for Fox. Said an insider:

"This level of shitiness was not expected. He's done a great job for NBC. He moved his entire staff, he moved his family to LA. And five months later, they repay him like this?"

Did O'Brien really expect something different from NBC? This is the same network that canceled all its original 10 p.m. programming and is actually considering yet another season of Heroes.

It has as much of a chance of finding success as The Situation has of winning an Academy Award.

Below, O'Brien hilariously recounts the rumors that have been floating around regarding he and Leno. This, folks, is why Jay doesn't hold a humorous candle to Conan...

You know it's sad when a Jersey Shore cast member is something you aspire to be. But that's exactly where The Hills star Kristin Cavallari is at these days.

"I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of jealous," Kristin Cavallari said when asked about the new hit MTV show at her 23rd birthday party Saturday night at Beso.

Jersey Shore brought in more than 3.2 million viewers during last week's episode, an all-time high for the freshman series in its brief, ultra-trashy history.

By comparison, ratings for The Hills ratings dropped significantly during this past season, the first one in which Kristin replaced retired star Lauren Conrad.

We're not sure that's a coincidence.

  • The Situation
  • Kristin C. Pic

The Situation (pun intended) at MTV right now is that Jersey Shore is clobbering The Hills' most recent season's ratings. Kristin Cavallari would jump ship if asked!

Just 1.72 million viewers saw the October season 5 finale of The Hills, while 2.6 million viewers watched the season 4 finale and more still the prior season.

No wonder Kristin Cavallari wants a piece of the Jersey Shore action. Her favorite character on that show: "The Situation," she said. "I mean, come on, right?"

Right.

She said she'd even date a guido herself. "Maybe, if I liked him," the blonde Laguna Beach alum confessed. "I mean, if I was attracted to him, absolutely."

How can you not be attracted to The Situation quotes? Come on.

When Nick Jonas covered a Michael Jackson classic a couple days ago, it was a welcome tribute to a late, iconic figure.

But when the young singer gave a shout-out to Taylor Swift and then performed a version of her smash "You Belong With Me" at a Philadelphia concert on Saturday, it was an unusual gesture aimed at his brother's ex-girlfriend.

Indeed, Joe Jonas famously (and immaturely) dumped Taylor in a 27-second phone call over a year ago and also slammed her in a Jonas Brothers' single.

Is Nick trying to bury the siblings' hatchet with Swift? It would serve them well to get on the good side of this successful star, that's for certain.

Watch Jonas cover Taylor below and let us know your thoughts on this rendition:

Note to Hollywood: there are two ways to tell if it's time to end a successful franchise.

  1. When it's latest edition is universally panned by critics.
  2. When there's so much drama behind the scenes of a planned follow-up that the entire script is scrapped, the director replaced and the stars given the axe.

Such is the case with Spider-Man 4, as Sony Pictures has announced a reboot to the franchise. The fourth installment in this series - very tentatively scheduled for a summer 2012 release - will bid farewell to Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst and feature Peter Parker as a high school student.

Spider-Man 4 Pic

Wrote the movie studio in a supposedly optimistic statement:

"A decade ago we set out on this journey with [director[ Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, and together we made three Spider-Man films that set a new bar for the genre. When we began, no one ever imagined that we would make history at the box office, and now we have a rare opportunity to make history once again with this franchise.

"Peter Parker as an ordinary young adult grappling with extraordinary powers has always been the foundation that has made this character so timeless and compelling for generations of fans. We're very excited about the creative possibilities that come from returning to Peter's roots."

Are you excited over this new Spider-Man 4 concept?

Or tired of Hollywood sticking to the same sequels and franchises every summer?

A huge billboard for Weatherproof Sportswear will be removed from New York City’s Times Square. The reason? The guy wearing their jacket never consented.

That would be President Barack Obama.

Britney Spears, Plaid Shirt

When it went up last week, the company was blasted for appropriating Obama’s likeness; now they say the ad will be taken down “in an expeditious manner.”

White House spokesperson Ben LaBolt, who declined to comment specifically about Weatherproof’s decision to take the billboard down, told People of the ad:

“The White House has a longstanding policy disapproving of the use of the President of the United States name and likeness for advertising purposes.”

A LEADER IN STYLE: So much so that people shoplift it!

While the Obamas were recently voted Americans' most desired celebrity neighbors and are popular style icons, some say this violates Barack's right to privacy.

So, what was the company thinking when it put up the ad? Weatherproof President Freddie Stollmack, who called the campaign “serendipitous,” explained:

“We saw a picture of President Obama visiting the Great Wall of China and we said, ‘Boy that looks like our coat.’” It was a simple idea, but hard to defend.

Intellectual property lawyer Barbara Solomon said it's "not an issue of expression but pure commercial appropriation. This is an advertisement, nothing but.”

The Obamas are apparently frequent targets of such image-stealing. Last week PETA caused a stir with an anti-fur ad that featured Michelle Obama pictures.

Breaking, almost definitely made-up news: Tila Tequila is pregnant!

In her latest stream of Tweets - which follow last night's God-based barrage - Tila claims she is taking the high road; that haters are pissing off the Almighty; and hints strongly that she has a bun in her warped oven.

Like Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin, the most damning, hilarious evidence of Tequila's publicity-inspired madness is simply to list her Twitter messages word-for-word. Shake your head over them (listed from latest to oldest, all within an hour) below...

Jon Gosselin has reportedly met the mother of his new girlfriend, Morgan Christie. Amazingly, he and Morgan are still dating after the encounter took place!

The undisputed titleholder of King of All Douchebags was spotted having dinner Sunday with new gal Morgan and members of her family in Park City, Utah.

"Based on body language, it seemed like they had met before," an onlooker said. "It was really quiet at their table; the mom was doing most of the talking."

One thing she probably said: My daughter is dating Jon Gosselin?!

Also at the table for six? The sister of Morgan Christie. No word on whether Jon tried to slip her a phone number or suggested any girl-on-girl action later.

King of All Douchebags

Dressed casually in a T-shirt and blazer, the loser remained low-key, doing little talking with his new girlfriend or her family the nearly three-hour meal.

"I was sensing some nervousness," said an observer. "Jon and Morgan came in first and sat in the bar for about 15 minutes until her family got there."

"When they were walked over to their table, Jon Gosselin was carrying a drink in each hand. Then at dinner they all drank a few bottles of wine."

Sounds about right, source. Not one to go turn down any form of publicity, Gosselin took photos with several fans after he finished his meal.

Yes, apparently Jon has "fans."

Morgan Christie, a native of Greenwich, Conn., who met Jon skiing in Utah last year, graduated from Connecticut's Loomis Chaffee School in 2003.

Their alumni association must be so proud.

Earlier today, Randy Jackson said he hopes the American Idol focus soon shifts from the judging table to the singing stage.

That may be difficult after today's announcement: Simon Cowell has confirmed that he's leaving the series after this season.

At a gathering of the country's TV critics in California, Cowell said he's bringing his popular UK show The X Factor to the United States in 2011.

“We did talk about me staying on both shows, but when we looked at the practicalities of that, it was impossible,” Cowell said. “In my opinion, it’s like having a good player and a good football team. The two have to be okay together. I believe it’s not my show, but it’s still very close to me... I’m confident [American Idol] will continue to be the No. 1 show. Everyone is committed to keeping it that way.”

Simon Photograph

The X Factor is almost identical to Idol, except that groups are allowed to enter the singing competition and there's no age limit on contestants. Leona Lewis was crowned its champion one season, launching her successful career.

Is there really room for it and Idol to air simultaneously? And, more pressingly, will you even watch American Idol without Simon Cowell as a judge?
