A private funeral was held on Christmas Eve for the late Brittany Murphy, who died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 32 less than a week ago.

A small group of close friends and family members gathered at the Church of the Hills at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in L.A. to pay their respects.

At the service, Simon Monjack called his wife his "soul mate."

He also said of Brittany: "Mystery is the nature of love and you never know when or where it will strike or how quickly it will be taken from you."

Murphy was interred at twilight; "Amazing Grace" was sung at graveside; The service concluded with a reading of The Little Prince, her favorite book.

Her estranged father, Angelo Bertolotti, did not attend the funeral. "If I wanted to go, I would go, but I don't want to see her that way," he told E! News Friday.

"She was flawless to me. She was a little bright child. I have only good memories. She's a memory to me now. To me she's off making a movie somewhere."

A larger memorial service for Murphy may be held early next year.

Murphy died at 10:04 a.m. December 20 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after she was found unresponsive in her bathroom by her mother.

Many have speculated that Brittany Murphy took an unhealthy amount of medication, but her husband denies the star had an overdose or eating disorder.

Disclaimer: Olivia Wilde is downright gorgeous. We know this.

We, too, would strangle a mountain ox in order to make out with the beauty.

But that doesn't change the fact that the House actress can look better or worse, depending on her style choices. For example:

In the contrasting photos below, Wilde shows off her versatility. She's fresh-faced and mostly make-up free in the first; versus decked out in eye shadow and a more exotic look in the second. Which do you prefer?

How do you like your Olivia Wilde?

He may be best known for starring in Two and a Half Men, but Charlie Sheen now has one giant problem on his hands.

The actor has been arrested for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief. Sheen was picked up in Aspen for an alleged incident of domestic violence against wife Brooke Mueller.

Comedy Central Still

While the police may claim Sheen celebrated Christmas by honoring Chris Brown, his rep says otherwise:

"Do not be mislead by appearance. Appearance and reality can be as different as night and day. It would benefit everyone not to jump to any conclusion."

Sheen - who has been accused of sleeping with hookers, beating up dogs and keeping pornography on his computer while married to Denise Richards - is being held without bond.

He'll remain in jail until Monday, due to a Colorado law that requites a protection order between those arrested for domestic violence and their victims.

Sheen and Mueller got married in May 2008 and welcomed twins in October of that year.

** UPDATE: It's been confirmed that Mueller called 911 and claimed her husband laid his hands on her - but Sheen told cops that Mueller was the aggressor and he was simply trying to keep her away.

Adam Senn and Lindsay Lohan are heating up for the holidays.

In related news, The City star has felt a burning sensation when he pees these days.

Lindsay's new boy toy accompanied her to Ali Lohan's 16th birthday party this week.

Once there, "he had his arm around her, was kissing her and stuck by her side,” a source said. “She was glowing. She loves the attention she's getting from Adam and looked extremely pleased with herself for landing Adam — she had a giant smile on her face!"

Witnesses also claim that Ali and mother Dina got into a huge, public fight. But that's par for this troubled family's course.

  • Adam Senn
  • Crazed Lohan

Adam Senn is totally tapping Samantha Ronson's sloppy seconds and Aaron Carter's sloppy 417ths.

As for Lohan and Senn?

"Adam and Lindsay took smoke breaks together away from the family and he was a total gentleman, holding the door open for her and letting her back walk into the restaurant before him,” the source added.

“Eventually everyone left and Adam and Lindsay stayed behind to spend some quiet time together. They were there until well after midnight, just the two of them. They are definitely having a good time together... she's spending a lot more time in New York than she normally does, just so that she can see him."

Hear that Adam? You owe the Big Apple a major apology.

With 2009 drawing to a close, The Hollywood Gossip staff looks back on this wild year, naming finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

It's time for us to pay tribute to the special celebrities who made this year the most memorable for THG and for celebrity gossip fans across the nation and world.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their off-the-wall antics and, in the case of today's finalist, probably the messiest reality TV divorce of all-time.

Recently, our kountdown kontinued with all those krazy, kurvy Kardashians in the #4 spot. Now, it's on to Celebrity of the Year Finalist #3: Jon Gosselin!

Jon Gosselin is #1

Jon thinks he should be higher, but he'll have to settle for #3.

It's hard to believe that it was only six months ago that Jon Gosselin was known as your run-of-the-mill reality show father of eight who loved ATVs, Ed Hardy t-shirts, Bluetooths, etc. His wife was painful but they made it work.

Until they didn't.

Jon was caught cheating with teacher pal Deanna Hummel, setting in motion an epic train wreck as his marriage and reality show simultaneously unraveled.

Free from the grating banshee that is Kate, Jon proceeded to get with Hailey Glassman ... and Kate Major, and Stephanie Santoro. Often at the same time.

He befriended Michael Lohan, hosted pool parties in Vegas, tried to start his own clothing line and earned a place in the upper echelon of global douchebags.

When his wild partying and nightly interviews on The Insider caused TLC to cut him out and rename their show Kate Plus 8, he proceeded to pull the plug on the show, citing child exploitation. They countersued for breach of contract.

What he'll try to pull next is anyone's guess, but a run like he had is worthy of top three status in 2009. Here's a little photo tribute to the infamous Jon ...

  • Feelin' Like a P-I-M-P
  • Hailey Glassman Photo
  • Jon Gosselin Ridin'
  • STFU Jon!
  • Jonny Boy
  • Class Act
  • Bad Dad
  • Grade A Douchebag
  • Jon Gosselin Shirtless
  • He Likes 'Em This Big

Teresa Heinz, the wife of Senator John Kerry, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

In light of the controversial new guidelines from the U.S. Preventative Service Task Force - which advise women under 50 to actually NOT undergo mammograms - Heinz wrote in to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette today:

"The cancer was detected at an early stage thanks to a mammogram and the work of a remarkable physician who insisted on investigating beyond what the mammogram could show. I have had two operations and my prognosis for a full recovery is good.

"As any woman can attest, mammograms can be nerve racking. And as the government's task force pointed out, they can produce misleading results and anxiety. But Ive' been personally reminded that they can also produce something else: a lifesaving early diagnosis."

We agree with Heinz's stance and we wish her a speedy, full recovery. Send in your get well wishes today!

Most of us get into the Christmas spirit with egg nog, festive decorations around our homes, red and green sweaters and maybe the occasional Santa hat.

Lady Gaga, on the other hand ...

There's little else we really have to add to this photo. It's probably no surprise to her fans, who are well accustomed to the unique star's "fashion" sense.

After all, this is an artist who can and will pull off just about anything. Even those Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors seemed to increase her popularity.

So rather than paying tribute to the holiday season with Santa-themed attire, she opted for a reindeer look. We have to say, we kinda dig the antlers ...

A Very Gaga Christmas

Vanessa Hudgens might have a nice body, but the actress wants to keep it to herself. And Zac Efron, of course.

The actress is suing the owners of www.moejackson.com because the website has posted her most recent nude photos - described in the suit as "self-portrait photographs" - and has refused to take them down.

"The photos were obtained by unknown methods and posted on the internet by an unknown person without Hudgens' knowledge or consent," reads the lawsuit's documents.

Clothes On

Oddly, TMZ reports Hudgens has registered the naked pics with the U.S. Copyright Office. Her lawyers are seeking monetary compensation for damages from Butter Media, the company that owns the domain.

We're all for justice, Vanessa, but you do realize this lawsuit will draw attention to your naked pictures on that website, don't you? Perhaps that's your Christmas present to young male fans around the world.
