The reveal of the official Eclipse poster? Exciting.

The announcement by Adam Lambert that he'd be interested in recording a track for the Eclipse soundtrack? Very cool.

Sexy Rob Pattinson

But the release of the first image from the third film in the Twilight Saga? Swoon, shriek and hyperventillation worthy!

Summit Entertainment, the movie studio responsible for the franchise, has leaked the following photo from Eclipse. On one hand, it's simply a shot of Edward and Bella in a field of flowers.

On the other hand, IT'S A SHOT OF EDWARD AND BELLA IN A FIELD OF FLOWERS! Get excited, fans, and then get to ogling...

Among other newsworthy items related to the movie over the past couple months:

  • Kirsten Prout, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Jack Huston, Jodelle Ferland, and Xavier Samuel have all been cast in key roles.
  • Bryce Dallas Howard will controversially replace Rachel Lefevre as Victoria.

Fans are still buzzing over the second tidbit. Now, they can at least shift their focus back to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's characters.

On a scale of 1 to this nut job, how excited are you for Eclipse?

Just because you're on Jersey Shore does not mean you have no brain.

Okay, it totally does. But the MTV show's Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola wants you to know that she goes to college, dammit! She's not an airhead trash bag!

"People watching wouldn't expect me to be in college," Sammi says. "I'm a student. I'm really smart. I'm artistic. I'm unique. They just see the party side."

That would be the side in which she says gonna knock a b!tch up for hookin' up with her man. But no matter. Sammi says she's, well, a smart Sweetheart.

In the time we've seen her on Jersey Shore so far, Sammi did some flirting with The Situation, only to realize she's more into the more juiced-up Ronnie.

Here's a cute screen cap of the Shore lovebirds ...

Sammi and Ronnie

This is not to say Sammi and Ronnie are not without their troubles. In last week's episode, Ronnie actually cried following a jealous argument with Sammi.

That led to some of the lamest Jersey Shore quotes yet, but at least Ronnie confessed to "smooshing" Sammi after they made up. Ronnie's a real softie.

"It's real life," Sammi says. "It's real feelings and real emotions. But I always had a really good feeling about him, so I knew that we would make it far."

They are still together. Sammi says she's not thinking "forever" yet, but next new episode, airing on New Year's Eve, show's Ronnie meeting her parents.

As for her career plans?

"I'm really artistic, so I really want to get into fashion designing and fashion styling," Sammi said. "That's, like, something I'm really, really interested in."

Hmm. If what we've seen from the girls (no pants, tight tops) and the guys (no shirts) on Jersey Shore is what she has in mind, we may have a problem.

Dr. Conrad Murray has inked a deal with a British documentary crew to sell footage of himself on the job. That's as incredible as the stuff in Michael Jackson's FBI file.

But it's true. The doctor who's being investigated in the death of Jackson will star in an international TV special. Only in Hollywood ... or in some alternate universe.

Footage of MJ's personal physician during his first day back on the job in Houston on November 23 was shot for an upcoming one-episode TV special. Scintillating.

A spokesman for Dr. Murray says the production company was "interested in the reaction of patients to his return" after a five-month absence after MJ's demise.

The crew followed Murray around the whole day. We're sure that'll make for gripping TV. They were probably hoping for a lot of hecklers yelling "MURDERER!"

Dr. Conrad Murray Picture

Kill Michael Jackson, score a TV deal. That's Hollywood for you.

The spokesman also notes that Dr. Murray hasn't received a dime for his work ... as of right now. But he will get paid an unspecified amount once the special airs.

Dr. Conrad Murray is refusing to allow the company to air the project until the Michael Jackson investigation is complete ... and as we know, that could be awhile.

The spokesman says the wait could last "a couple of years."

Just to be safe, Murray's camp claims they're holding all of the footage: "Dr. Murray is currently working 12 hour days ... to pay off his [child support] debt."

Dude's baby mama sued him, after all. He may or may not be a murderer, but he is a deadbeat dad. We've determined that in the last few months at least.

Adorable alert: Selena Gomez is the cover subject of the latest Seventeen magazine.

The cute actress poses for a series of photos inside the special prom issue, while also opening up about a number of issues in her life. What has she learned? What is most important to her?

The following interview excerpts supply a few answers...

On appreciating what she has: I get hurt - everybody does - but I'm more at the point where I'm looking at all the good things in my life. I have a healthy family who's alive that I'm blessed to have, and wonderful friends.

Seventeen Cover

On this year's fashion: My least favorite trend of 2009 would have to be broad-shouldered jackets. I'm probably bitter because I can't pull it off! It did look good on certain people, just not me.

On the World Wide Web: I've given up the Internet. I don't read comments, and I don't go on any of the sites anymore, and I just feel better. And it's not about being a celebrity — you get on MySpace, Facebook, there's all these different outlets where people can just feel like nobody's watching them so they can just say whatever they want to say.

On posing for covers: I never dreamed about being on magazine covers. I always dreamed that I would get to do what I loved - this was just a bonus!

It's hard not to adore Gomez. She's young, talented and seems to have a regular head on her shoulders. We wish her nothing but a lifetime of success.

Los Angeles courtroom Commissioner Reva Goetz ordered the co-conservatorship of Britney Spears to continue, with her father, Jamie Spears, in control of her life.

Jamie will get $16,000 a month for his duties as conservator of Brit. Not a bad deal, but he does make her personal, financial and medical decisions 24/7/365.

In short, he works hard for the money.

Goetz also ordered the co-conservator of Britney, aptly-named lawyer Andrew Wallet, to be paid $174,569.10 for services rendered from July-November 2009.

The judge didn't specify how long the conservatorship will remain in place, but lawyers involved expect it to last somewhere between six months and a year.

Probably for the best. We know Jason Trawick is a great influence and she's a lot better now, but we're not sure she's capable of runnin' wild and free just yet ...

Still Shackled

Jamie Spears still controls this. He might want to hire a stylist.

We reported two weeks ago that Britney sought to end the conservatorship. Either that was untrue, she was overruled, or there's an end in sight (just not now).

Other issues concerned continuing to seal all medical and certain business transactions because of "trade secrets," so that Britney's treatment stays confidential.

The judge also increased the bond for the conservatorship from $1 million to $25 million. That way, if anything happened Britney's money she would be covered.

Samuel Ingham, a court appointed attorney for Britney Spears, said in court that, "She [Britney] accepted the decisions as filed and had no objection to it."

The next court hearing in the Britney case is scheduled for January 14. Fees for Laura Wasser, the star's divorce/custody attorney, will be dealt with then.

Hailey Glassman wants 2010 to be drama-free. That means her resolution is to be Jon Gosselin-free. Now that's a New Year's goal we can get behind!

Jon's 22-year-old ex Jon announced her 2010 plans on her private Twitter account, which THG is lucky enough to have access to. We're totes friends.

"My New years resolution is to finally stand up for myself, not let myself be controled+manipulated by Jon," she wrote, "I wish for him out of my life."

Maybe she should also resolve to use spell check.

Glassman has said on numerous occasions that she was "emotionally abused" by Jon Gosselin during the relationship and that he would throw "mantrums" at her.

Hailey Glassman is turning over a new, Jon-free leaf.

As recently as December 8, Glassman told Radar Online that she was furious to learn the truth about Gosselin's fling with Star magazine reporter Kate Major.

"I'm mind boggled and hurt by it," she said, noting that she awkwardly still lives with Jon in New York. "He still lies to me about it and denies it to this day."

But Hailey Glassman, who was recently seen kissing Damon Feldman, is moving on, and moving out ... of the Manhattan apartment she shared with Jon.

She also wants to lose some weight!

"Moving into my new place! :-)," she Twittered, "and another resolution is what every womens says "Get back into shape".-lol.Ladies lets all succeed together."

Again with the spell check. Just saying.

She's known for her large breasts and rich French husband.

But Salma Hayek has made news over the last couple months for two other reasons:

  1. She guest-starred on 30 Rock in a hilarious role as Jack Donaghy's girlfriend;
  2. She changed her hairstyle.

While the sitcom stint resulted in a few of the funniest scenes on TV, the change to Hayek's appearance as led to an Internet uproar.

Fans are split on whether they prefer the actress with long hair or with a bob. Compare the looks below and decide for yourself:

  • Salma Hayek Lace Dress
  • Salma Hayek Golden Globes Dress

Which hairstyle is most beautiful?

Officials planned to keep the details of Brittany Murphy's death classified until the official autopsy results were determined and could be released in 4-6 weeks.

Only someone apparently forgot to tell the biggest celeb news site. Now the L.A. County Coroner's Office wants to know how detailed report ended up on TMZ.

The site reported Monday that it had obtained notes laying out a timeline of Sunday morning of Murphy's death - and the long list of meds in Murphy's house.

Now someone wants TMZ's head (and that of their mole) on a platter. And we thought one of our editors was upset over their proposed TMZsports.com site.

The agency's chief investigator, Ed Winter, told E! News that no one authorized the disclosure of such information and he wants to know who's responsible.

"The investigator did not release this, nor did he talk to anybody," said Winter.

Information on Brittany Murphy's final hours was leaked yesterday.

"Where did this come from? Neither Chief [Coroner Craig] Harvey nor I released the information. I don't even know if we provided LAPD with a copy yet."

Winter said he had seen the notes TMZ quoted and was not able to verify their authenticity, but we'd say there's a pretty good chance they're very accurate.

After all, we've seen that site come up with stuff out of nowhere many times before that turned out to be true - Elin Woods' fight with Tiger comes to mind.

Winter did not say if the prescription medications listed in the documents matched what his team found, or if he feels they led to Murphy's heart attack.

"I hadn't even seen the list of the possible drugs," he said. "I didn't have any notes and I have not checked the evidence log. I really don't even know."

We're less than a month away from the premiere of American Idol season nine.

While the major show news over the last few months involved Ellen DeGeneres as the new judge; the latest buzz regarding the competition revolves around the man that truly makes the series what it is: Simon Cowell.

According to Simon's brother Tony, a radio personality with a weekly podcast: “A press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everybody expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of ‘X Factor’ to U.S. TV in 2011.”

If true, that would make this Cowell's final season as a panelist. Would you even watch American Idol if he left?

Simon

Regarding the season itself, Fox announced a few key dates for it this week:

  • January 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27; February 2, 3: Nationwide auditions for Hollywood. Rotating guest judges will include Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Joe Jonas, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and Shania Twain.
  • February 9: Hollywood rounds. DeGeneres debuts.
  • February 17: 24 semifinalists announced.
  • March 16: 12 finalists announced.

Also of note: there will be no Wild Card round this year, as the controversial addition to last season's Idol gave the judges the power to keep one contestant on even after he/she was voted off by viewers.

Remember: THG is your destination for complete American Idol recaps, videos and commentaries once the season begins!

Clifford Harri, a.k.a. rapper T.I., was released from prison in Arkansas yesterday after seven months behind bars. He'll be living in a halfway house now.

T.I. was sentenced to 366 days in the Forrest City prison after he was busted in 2007 for sending his bodyguard out to buy machine guns and silencers.

Steve Sadow, his attorney, told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that the troubled star was going to report to Dismas Charities Atlanta West in Georgia.

That's where he'll be living in halfway house for the next three months.

After his sentence is completed, T.I. still has to complete 500 hours of community service and 23 days of home incarceration for the weapons charges.

T.I. is that much closer to becoming a free man.

Prisoners sentenced to 366 days are eligible for a 54-day sentence reduction for good behavior and for a transfer to a halfway house, which T.I. got.

It all seems to have worked out well for the platinum-selling artist, who has 32 past arrests for weapons violations and a conviction for dealing crack.

What could have been a 10-year term was reduced by a plea agreement, in which the rapper was asked to publicly speak about the error of his ways.

That included talking to youth groups about avoiding the life he has led, and a bonus MTV series (which did not count), T.I.'s Road to Redemption.

Not a bad way to redeem yourself with the justice system or the public.
