U.S. Congressman Peter King, who railed against Michael Jackson over the weekend, calling him a pedophile and child molester, isn't done yet.

In fact, the Long Island Republican apparently has much more to say about the late music star, of whom he is not a huge fan, to put it mildly.

After criticizing society for revering MJ's legacy and not paying tribute to our troops, police and firefighters (as if the two are in any way mutually exclusive), Peter King described the media coverage of Jackson "an orgy of glorification."

King swears he won't speak out against Jackson today - out of respect for the star's memorial service - but he told New York's CBS 2 last night:

"Yes, he did violate young boys. He did put them in terribly inappropriate positions. And that's a terrible signal to be sending out to society that we are condoning that type of behavior, and you are condoning when you give him this kind of regal coverage, with millions of people fighting to get to his memorial. This is just wrong."

Is Peter King going too far?

In Jennifer's Body, Megan Fox portrays a high school cheerleader that gets possessed, goes on a male killing spree and often gets topless.

The movie, which was written by Diablo Cody, also stars Amanda Seyfried and Adam Brody and his theaters on September 18.

While women may see it for the murdering-of-horny-men aspect, here are two reasons why guys will be lining up for tickets, as well:

The images above are taken from the Jennifer's Body movie trailer, released today. In it, the Transformers actress swims naked in a lake and refers to boys as "agents of Satan with really awesome haircuts."

Sorry, Jim and Pam fans.

While Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski may have perfect chemistry on The Office, each has gone his/her separate ways in real life; and, this time, Fischer hopes her marriage doesn't end in divorce.

Lee Kirk

The actress has announced her engagement to writer Lee Kirk. The proposal reportedly took place on June 30, while the couple was vacationing in Europe.

Fischer - who divorced director James Gunn in July 2007 - referred to Kirk as her "super cute boyfriend" at the 2008 Emmy Awards. That earned Kirk the wrath of The Hollywood Gossip.

He better treat her well!

Nashville police investigating the murder of former NFL quarterback Steve McNair now think the gun used to slay him belonged to Sahel Kazemi.

That would be the 20-year-old woman McNair was having an affair with.

McNair was found shot four times - twice in the head and twice in the body - in a fatal, mysterious incident at a Nashville condo early Saturday.

Sahel Kazemi suffered a single, fatal gunshot to the head.

Don Aaron, a Nashville police spokesman said this afternoon, "We believe the pistol recovered from the apartment was purchased by Kazemi."

Cops were told Kazemi and McNair "had been in a dating relationship," even though McNair was married to his wife Mechelle and has four kids.

The gun in question was found underneath Kazemi's body - the police think murder-suicide is a possibility, but have yet to say anything official.

While her death was the first time some people close to McNair even heard of Sahel Kazemi, she told her family she wanted to marry McNair.

Debbie Rowe has been totally out of the spotlight ever since she stood up for Michael Jackson at his child molestation trial in 2005 (a glossed-over part of the late star's past that was brought up by U.S. Rep. Peter King today).

How uncomfortable she is being back in it shows.

After first saying she would attend Jackson's memorial service Tuesday at the Staples Center in L.A., Rowe abruptly pulled out of the invite-only event.

Her attorney, Marta Almli, said, "The onslaught of media attention has made it clear her attendance would be a distraction at an event that should focus exclusively on Michael's legacy. Debbie will continue to celebrate Michael's memory privately."

Part of what changed her mind? An altercation with celebrity news photographers Sunday. Emerging from a Chinese restaurant near her house, Rowe yelled at the paparazzi: "You ready to get your butt kicked? Don't f*%king touch me."

Debbie Rowe Flips Out

GETTING INTO A ROWE: Debbie is far from pleased.

Debbie Rowe is the mother (supposedly) of his two eldest children, Prince, 12, and Paris, 11. The mother of Jackson's third child, Prince II (Blanket), 7, is unknown.

Last week, Rowe said she wants custody of the kids, though her attorney the said later that she "has not reached a final decision concerning custody proceedings."

Amid reports that she is not a biological parent of the children - nor is Jackson - Rowe told NBC that she is willing to submit to DNA testing to prove maternity.

A guardianship hearing has been postponed until July 13 at the request of attorneys for Rowe and Katherine Jackson, who remains their temporary guardian.

Over the objections of Katherine Jackson, a Los Angeles probate judge today ruled that Michael Jackson's 2002 will is valid and that, per the singer's wishes, attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain are executors of his estate.

A lawyer for Michael Jackson's mother, John Schreiber, argued to the judge that "there is concern over handing over the keys to the kingdom so quickly."

But Judge Mitchell Beckloff refused, telling Schreiber, "Someone needs to be at the helm of the ship." Jackson's estate is estimated at $500 million-plus.

Katherine Jackson had been appointed temporary executor last week, when the family still believed the star had died without a will. But Branca surfaced with a five-page will written seven years ago, establishing him and McClain as executors.

The estate will be split among the singer's mother, his three children and charities, dissing ex-wife Debbie Rowe and giving Katherine custody of his kids.

At a press conference, Branca's attorney, Howard Weitzman, said that the executors were pleased with the ruling and sent condolences to the family.

"We believe Judge Beckloff made the correct decision. We intend to carry out the wishes Michael Jackson set forth. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jackson family this week in remembering Michael as a beloved father, son and brother."

Meanwhile, the court confirmed that another will, dated from 1997, was filed this week, also listing Branca as executor. The judge's ruling should not be affected, because Michael Jackson's last will from 2002 would trump any older one.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, a friend of the Jacksons, appeared on Good Morning America earlier today, expressing disappointment that the hearing wasn't delayed.

"I think it has been very insensitive, particularly to this family, that you would even think of scheduling a court hearing on the status of the mother the day before she has to go to the cemetery for her son," Sharpton said. "It's almost insulting."

Sure thing. Beckloff said he believed Branca and McClain would act in the best interest of the estate and be best equipped to sort through various complicated legal and financial problems, ranging from lingering IOUs and lawsuits.

The singer's private funeral and public memorial take place tomorrow.

The next hearing in the probate case is set for August 3. For more details, click to enlarge some of the key portions of Michael Jackson's will ...

We know you mean well, ladies.

But can you please take it a bit easy on Robert Pattinson? We do want this Brit to return to the States at some point.

Remember Me Photo

On-set sources from the actor's new movie, Remember Me, have told The New York Daily News that Pattinson has developed a hatred for New York City.

"Robert is dying to get back home," a source told the newspaper. "He's so over everything. He's overwhelmed by all the girls - they terrify him! He says girls grab his neck and clothing all of the time, and he’s not used to that. Fans don’t do that to him in London. Everyone there is a little cooler about the fame thing."

Part of the reason Pattinson can't handle the chaos that surrounds his every movie? It simply confounds him.

"Robert doesn’t understand why everyone is going so crazy over him," said the insider. “He’s embarrassed by the way girls throw themselves at him. The girls here are stalking him... He's afraid that if he gives a hand, they’ll take the whole arm. He’s being advised by security not to encourage the crowd, so he doesn’t even look up anymore."

Please, gals, take it easy on that arm. Pattinson may need it to hold he and Kristen Stewart's rumored baby!
