Austin, Tex., resident Laurel Kagay was just minding her own business and watching The Bachelorette Monday. Then suddenly, her name was mentioned.

In a hilariously staged return, ousted suitor Jake Pavelka came back to tell Jillian Harris that Wes Hayden, a remaining contender, had a girlfriend.

Her name is Laurel, Jake told Jillian and millions of viewers. Wes denied he is dating her. Jake ratted him out anyway. Laurel Kagay sat in shock at home.

“I was like, ‘What?’” Laurel told People in an interview today. “There was this pause before he said my name - and then he said it quite a few times.”

Laurel Kagay, owner of Peach Body Boutique in Austin, would like to clear the air on this topic, which has dominated the contrived Bachelorette for weeks.

She dated Wes Hayden for three years, but they are broken up, and have been for quite a while now. The two became strictly friends a year ago, she said.

“I’m absolutely not with Wes, nor would I be with Wes if he were going on a show to be with another girl,” she says. “That’s absolutely crazy.”

So how did Jake Pavelka get things mixed up?

“I think he was paid by the producers to come on the show and confront Wes definitely upset about not being on the show anymore,” Laurel theorized.

Wes Hayden, Jillian Harris

Laurel Kagay insists that she and Wes Hayden - who has caught considerable flak for romancing Jillian Harris while supposedly dating Laurel - are not an item.

“And I think Wes did say something about his ex-girlfriend. Maybe he said he still cares about me or whatever. Maybe Jake blew that into something else.”

However, Laurel Kagay admits, “We are really good friends and we do go out to lunch together, so I could see how people could think we’re together.”

Oddly enough, Laurel is also linked to another famous name in The Bachelor franchise - Brad Womack, the Texan who chose no one on his season finale.

Laurel Kagay has also dated Collin Evans, who was briefly a contender on The Bachelorette’s third season with Jen Schefft. Sounds like she has a type!

As for Wes Hayden, who The Bachelorette has presented as the ultimate bad boy, Laurel says, “They have not shown Wes’ real personality at all. He’s so funny. When we were together, we were always laughing and having fun."

"I never worried about him cheating on me.”

“She seems to have fun and has a good personality,” Laurel says of Jillian Harris, “and he’s really fun and funny. Too bad all this craziness had to go down.”

Newlywed Kendra Wilkinson, who tied the knot with Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett at the Playboy Mansion Saturday, was no bridezilla.

But she was not shy about giving her bridesmaids (Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt among them) or brother Colin, who gave her away, the play-by-play.

"I'm stepping, I'm stepping, stepping," the E! reality star informed her bridesmaids as she made her way down the mansion's steps prior to the wedding.

"Colin, Colin, shuffle your feet, don't walk," Kendra told her bro. "Shuffle your feet. Gotta shuffle. I gotta shuffle my feet. This dress is getting in my way."

Of course, no Kendra Wilkinson event would be complete without that painful laugh, and her wedding vows had a quality one, along with a mini-blunder.

Still, all her regimented work paid off in the end. Check out the video below, and follow the link for our gallery of Kendra Wilkinson wedding photos!

An extremely dangerous, potent drug used for surgical anesthesia was found at Michael Jackson's residence after he died ... and may well what killed him.

According to TMZ, Propofol was confiscated at his home. A source said, "There is no conceivable way this drug can be properly prescribed for home use."

Michael, Prince and Paris Jackson

Some facts about this dangerous drug:

  • Propofol can only be administered with an IV.
  • The drug is used to put people under anesthesia before surgery.
  • It is extremely powerful, and only available to medical personnel.
  • Propofol burns and the drug Lidocaine is used to reduce the pain associated with the Propofol injection. Lidocaine was found near Jackson's body.
  • One of the major side-effects of Propofol can be cardiac arrest if it's taken in combination with narcotic painkillers. However, some sources suggest that Propofol is so powerful it can stop someone's heart on its own.

In the wake of Michael Jackson's death, a registered nurse has come out and said the star begged her for the drug Diprivan - the brand name for Propofol.

She says he needed it for insomnia but she declined to supply it.

Sources say that Propofol is so inappropriate and reckless for home use, if a doctor facilitated it for Michael Jackson and it caused his death, he or she could even be prosecuted for manslaughter under certain circumstances.

This is not to say the icon's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, administered this drug or anything else, only what TMZ's sources say about Propofol.

While a drug overdose has been widely speculated, Michael Jackson's autopsy results list the official cause of death as unknown pending further toxicology testing, which should shed more light on his tragic demise in 4-6 weeks.

Quite a week for the stars of the most recent season of The Bachelor:

  • Melissa Rycroft got engaged to Tye Strickland.
  • Jillian Harris narrowed her collection of suitors to four, while some intriguing Bachelorette spoilers are surfacing as the season winds down.
  • Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, who ended up together after a finale in which he first chose Rycroft, will be on Good Morning America.

Interestingly, Melissa Rycroft recently signed on as a special contributor for Good Morning America. No word on whether she'll also be on the show Thursday.

Jason and Molly Wedding

For Jason and Molly, who are still together and happy as ever, it's been a (thankfully) low-key last couple of months since the season finale of The Bachelor.

If you recall, Jason got engaged to Melissa, then broke up with her, and began dating Molly. This unfolded on The Bachelor's "After the Final Rose" special.

Fans were enraged at this, even though the breakup of Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft took place before the special, but he and Molly stayed strong.

Content to fly under the radar this spring after a high-profile courtship on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney have spent time in both Seattle and Milwaukee, where they respectively live, and took a nice Turks and Caicos vacation.

Could an engagement be in the works soon?

Maybe they'll have some big news to reveal tomorrow. Either way, it will be great to hear what these two have been up to. We think they're a great couple.

Mark Sanford has taken the political baton of infidelity from John Edwards and run with it well. But the latter isn't about to give up without a fight!

According to reports, former Edwards aide Andrew Young says the ex-presidential candidate once made a sex tape with his mistress, Rielle Hunter.

St. Martin’s Press just inked a deal with Young, who also says in his book proposal that, contrary to his public statement last year, he is not the father of Rielle’s adorable baby daughter, Frances Quinn. Rather, John Edwards is.

John Edwards has denied this.

Young says that his belief in Edwards ran so deep that he agreed to be the fall guy for the Democratic candidate, even going so far as to invite the pregnant Rielle Hunter to live with him, his wife, Cheri, and their three kids.

After Hunter delivered the baby, Young and his family moved to a different home in California. While he was unpacking, Young discovered an odd videotape - one that involved Edwards taking positions that weren’t on his official platform.

The purported Rielle Hunter sex tape confirms that Edwards was even shadier than thought. Then again, it's hard to beat hiding in the can from the Enquirer.

Andrew Young, right, and John Edwards on the campaign trail.

Sex tape or no sex tape, Rielle Hunter confided to Andrew Young that she and Edwards talked about getting married should his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth die.

Elizabeth Edwards is said to hold Young partly to blame for her husband’s affair, since Young knew about it and used his cell phone to conference John and Rielle.

Young says that, in revenge, Elizabeth arranged for the media to learn about a youthful misdemeanor in which Young was busted for stealing a sign from a bar.

Elizabeth Edwards also suspects Young stole the baseball card collection of her late son, Wade, according to a source who says that she told Young in an e-mail that some other former staff members “have passed lie detector tests.”

Young also contends that Edwards and 2004 running mate John Kerry clashed often, and that before he owned up to his affair with Hunter, Barack Obama promised he’d make him attorney general if he didn’t pick him as his 2008 V.P.

A lawyer for Debbie Rowe is denying reports that she is not the biological mother of Michael Jackson's two older children, Michael Jr., 12, and Paris, 11.

"We refuse to be drawn into addressing the various rumors and speculation swirling in the media," said Debbie Rowe's attorney Marta Almli.

"The vast majority of what is out there is untrue. Particularly hurtful and insidious is the most recent rumor which is entirely false concerning the maternity of the children. Ms. Rowe is the biological mother of the two oldest children."

The new issue of Us Weekly reveals that the children's biological father is Arnold Klein, Jackson's L.A.-based dermatologist and Rowe's former boss.

A different report on TMZ also stated that Jackson was not the father of the two kids, but added that Debbie Rowe was not the biological mother.

Jackson's youngest son, Prince Michael II (a.k.a. Blanket), 7, was born to an unnamed surrogate. That woman's name has never been revealed.

Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe were briefly married in the late '90s. Many questions about their union - including if the marriage was ever consummated - linger.

As for where the children end up from here, that's also anyone's guess.

On Monday - four days after Michael Jackson's June 25 death - his mother, Katherine Jackson, was awarded temporary legal guardianship of all three children, even though Rowe is still the legal parent of Michael Jr. and Paris.

Katherine Jackson's 22-page petition claims the kids "have no relationship with their biological mother." A hearing on the petition is scheduled for August 3.

The birth certificates for both children list Jackson as the father and Rowe as the mother. This likely means little from a biological standpoint, for any adopted child or child born via surrogate would still list the adoptive parents' names.

The place of birth for Michael Jr. is Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. The place of birth for Paris is listed as Spaulding Pain Medical Center in Beverly Hills.

Interestingly, Michael Jackson Jr. is often referred to as Prince Michael I (and Blanket as Prince Michael II) though this is not his name. Also, Paris' name is technically Paris-Michael, and Rowe signed Paris' certificate as Debbie Rowe-Jackson.

Another day, another series of Robert Pattinson pictures from the set of his new movie, Remember Me.

We're gonna go out on a limb and assume our female readers don't mind!

"[They act] like they’re dating, even when they aren’t shooting scenes.”

Hands on Hips

Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina disclosed that he had casual encounters with other women before starting a relationship last year with an Argentinian woman, Maria Belen Chapur, whose affair with him become public last week.

But Sanford, in an interview with the AP Tuesday, said that he only had "some physical contact" with the other women, and had sex only with Maria Belen Chapur.

“This was a whole lot more than a simple affair, this was a love story,” Sanford said. “A forbidden one, a tragic one, but a love story at the end of the day.”

He did not offer details about his relationships with other women.

In the interview, the disgraced governor admitted he and Chapur first met in 2001 and that he had traveled to New York twice last year for romantic getaways.

He said that after his wife, Jenny Sanford, discovered the affair, he made another trip to New York earlier this year, with her permission, to end the relationship. Sanford said he was accompanied on that trip by a spiritual adviser.

But last month he flew to Argentina to see Maria Belen Chapur again, a trip that led to the public revelations of the affair and one teary news conference.

The series of disclosures - including the fact that Jenny Sanford forbade him from going on the recent rip - have him holding onto his office by a thread.

“The governor, you know, should know better,” said Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican Party, to Fox News. “That’s not what leadership is about.”

Steele stopped short of calling for Mr. Sanford’s resignation.

The affair is perhaps most notable for the series of Mark Sanford emails written to Chapur that were obtained by The State newspaper in South Carolina.

These reveal beyond any doubt that this was more than a one-time flig - and that for a political hardass, Mark Sanford can be one cheesy S.O.B.!
