When two global icons sit down for a televised chat Tuesday afternoon, we can now confirm one topic of discussion:

Adam Lambert and Oprah Winfrey will talk about Simon Cowell's departure from American Idol. How does the singer feel about that news?

“The audience will definitely miss Simon,” he said. “The contestants will miss out on really honest criticism. Sometimes it can be a little personal, and I know other contestants took it to heart sometimes and got really stressed out about what he would say. [But] I think that that’s important to making you a better performer."

  • Big O

But, don't worry American Idol fans, Lambert says the show will most definitely go on... and one.

“Ultimately, after the first couple weeks of auditions, the audience tunes in every week for the contestants. [Audiences] grow fond of one or a couple of the people and they get behind them and they’re invested in them... we tune in to hear the contestants blossom or not.”

Adam will also perform the single "Whataya Want From Me" on the show. You can watch its official music video NOW.

Welcome to The Hollywood Gossip. Here, we take a look back at the top stories of what was a wacky, wild week in entertainment and celebrity news.

Some of the highlights (and lowlights) from the last seven days ...

  • Brangelina donated $1 million to Haitian earthquake relief efforts. George Clooney and Madonna have also been active. You can be too here.
  • One of the most dubious train wrecks in recent TV history is unfolding at NBC, where Jay Leno is now poised to reclaim his Tonight Show duties.
  • They totally hung Conan O'Brien out to dry. The whole situation was summed up perfectly by Jimmy Kimmel trashing Jay ... on Jay's own show.

NBC's Jay Leno jockeying left Conan O'Brien out in the cold.

  • In other ridiculous TV scandal news, The Bachelor booted a hot contestant, Rozlyn Papa, who says the producers lied about the reason and set her up.
  • Heidi Montag plastic surgery photos made the rounds, as did her terrible new album, which she humbly compares to Michael Jackson's Thriller.
  • Tila Tequila will not shut her yap (or her blog, or her Twitter) since Casey Johnson died. What do you expect from a girl milking a fake relationship?
  • Gilbert Arenas pleaded guilty to gun charges.
  • So ... whataya want from Adam Lambert!
  • Ashley Greene is hot. Snooki is not.
  • Noah Cyrus ... wow, we got nothin'.
  • Funniest tabloid cover of the week: Brangelina splitting up for the 186th time in Star. Honorable mention: Sarah and Bristol Palin, with babies, for In Touch.
  • Simon Cowell announced that this would be his last season of American Idol. The show's ninth year kicked off this week, with many potential contenders, such as Jermaine Sellers, making strong impressions on millions of viewers.

Simon Cowell's departure from American Idol shook up the TV world.

  • In baby news, Mark Wahlberg welcomed #4, Claudia Schiffer is pregnant with #3, Yao Ming's wife is preggers; Katy Perry is not ... at least not yet.
  • In wedding news, Michael Buble is engaged; So is Colt McCoy; So is Jared the Subway dude; Derek Jeter might be; Fergie and Josh renewed vows.
  • In breakup news, Nicole Scherzinger is single, The Shannon Twins dumped Hef; Zachary Levi and Caitlin Crosby split; JT and Jessica Biel may have.
  • R.I.P.: Jay Reatard and Teddy Pendergrass.

Tiger Woods is in rehab for sex addiction in Mississippi.

Two different sources have seen the world's #1 golfer in the Hattiesburg area. E! News has him at the entrance to the airport there around 10 p.m. Monday.

"He didn't look happy or sad, just straight," a witness says, noting that Tiger Woods got into the driver's seat of an SUV parked curbside and then drove off.

That sighting coincides with a Radar Online report that says the beleaguered star is currently in Hattiesburg to receive treatment at sex addiction facility.

Tiger was seen at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services. He checked in there this week to receive sex addiction treatment, sources claim.

If true, it would help repair his image, at least a little. Same with his Haiti relief pledge. Going completely off the radar hasn't helped quell Tiger gossip.

Oprah and Gaga

Tiger Woods is likely in rehab for sex addiction.

Two police cars pulled up to the clinic Friday afternoon and several officers went inside, showing no outward signs of a disturbance but of increased security.

The clinic is directed by Dr. Patrick Carnes, who pioneered treatment for sexually compulsive behavior, and is widely considered one of the best in the field.

Tiger Woods has not been seen in public since his infamous post-Thanksgiving car crash into a fire hydrant and tree exposed his dalliances with Rachel Uchitel.

That led to more than 10 women coming forward and admitting to sexual relationships with Tiger. His wife, Elin Woods, has not filed for divorce from him ... yet.

Whether she plans to is anyone's guess, although we reported in December that Tiger was planning a rehab stint after the holidays to help salvage his marriage.

Will sex rehab help Tiger?

Wow. Someone is actually on Team Jay!

In an interview with The New York Times, NBC executive Dick Ebersol referred to Conan O'Brien's run on The Tonight Show as an "astounding failure" and said:

"I like Conan enormously personally. He was just stubborn about not being willing to broaden the appeal of his show."

Fair enough. But might a problem also have been related to NBC's unfair, ridiculous decision to air The Jay Leno Show at 10 p.m. every night? Also based in Los Angeles, that program siphoned A-listers from The Tonight Show because it aired first.

Ebersol said he met with Conan three weeks prior to his move to 11:35 p.m. and urged him to alter his approach in order to reach more viewers, but the host refused. O'Brien's reps confirm that a meeting took place between the sides.

As for the shots David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and company are taking at Jay Leno?

"[It's] chicken-hearted and gutless to blame a guy you couldn't beat in the ratings," Ebersol told the newspaper. "They're just striking out at Jay. It seems like professional jealousy."

And that seems like complete and utter BS from a guy that's in charge of a dying network and desperate to defend his job.

New Moon mania is about to start up again.

Granted, it might not be as wild this time around, but a release date has been announced for the Twilight sequel on DVD: it will hit stores on March 20.

New Moon DVD

In a statement, Summit Entertainment explains the unusual move of releasing a new DVD on a Saturday:

"The Twilight Saga: New Moon will be released on a Two-Disc Special Edition DVD and Special Edition Blu-ray on March 20, 2010 - a Saturday street date that will allow for fans across the nation to celebrate at retailer's midnight release parties before taking home the film at 12:01 a.m."

Director Chris Weitz, meanwhile, says the DVD will have "about ten minutes of groovy stuff [fans] haven't seen."

Don't worry, Chris. As long as it has Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner shirtless, this thing will sell well.

Embattled, heat-packing NBA star Gilbert Arenas has entered a plea of guilty to one felony count of carrying an unlicensed firearm in the District of Columbia.

He has yet to be sentenced, and could still end up doing time for having the illegal gun. It is estimated that a low-end sentence would carry under six months.

Arenas' plea came after an investigation into a locker room standoff he had with teammate Javaris Crittenton in December and became a huge sports scandal.

The Washington Wizards player has to turn in his passport and is no longer allowed to possess any firearms. An investigation into Crittenton remains open.

During court proceedings this afternoon, new details of the now-infamous locker room standoff, which must be read to be believed, have also been revealed.

It all went down December 19, when Arenas and Crittenton became "involved in a verbal exchange after a card game," during which Arenas - who claims it was just a joke - and the teammate made "mutual threats to shoot one another."

Two days later, Arenas - who had four guns at the Verizon Center - "placed them on the chair of a teammate with a note stating, reportedly in jest, "PICK 1.'"

When Javaris Crittenton arrived, Arenas reportedly stated, "You said you were going to shoot me, so I thought you would like some firepower. Pick One."

Ken Wainstein, a lawyer for Arenas, said afterward that Gilbert "accepted full responsibility for his actions, acknowledged that those actions were wrong and against the law, and has apologized to all who have been affected by his conduct."

He is due back in court on March 26.

Arenas is prohibited, as are all NBA players, from bringing firearms into the arena, and the team could be looking to void his $111 million contract as a result.

This felony conviction definitely gives them more ammo. Pun intended.

We'll start by shooting down a rumor making its way around the Internet:

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are not engaged! Witnesses apparently spied a diamond ring on the singer's finger, contacted a celebrity gossip site and talk began to surface that the Australian actor had proposed to the 17-year old.

Going to the Club

This is not true. But might it be soon?

An insider told E! News that Cyrus does see herself "marrying young." Moreover, she's "totally in love" and has told people in her life that Liam is "the one." (Sorry, Nick Jonas and Justin Gaston, we hope you aren't reading this.)

Adding fuel to this engagement fire? Sources state that Miley and Liam now live together in the Cyrus family home.

Might marriage really be that far behind? Should Miley wait a few years before she settles down? And can Noah Cyrus please stop singing about getting crunked?!?

Those are the questions. What are your answers, readers?

Have Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake broken up?

It doesn't sound like it, based on the former's interview with the latest issue of Vogue. But don't ask Biel for many details on her relationship with the sexy singer.

"I don't want to talk about it," she tells the magazine. "I don't feel the need to clear anything up. It's the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don't care about what anyone says or thinks. I have just not addressed it in any real way, and I'm not going to. It's mine. And I really like that about it."

Darn Biel for being so... mature and reasonable. What are we supposed to write about now?!?

Vogue Cover

What's it been like to read about rumored break-ups and problems between her and her man?

"It's definitely been weird and sort of bizarre to deal with," Biel said. "But you have to have a sense of humor about the whole thing. Honestly, I look at a magazine and they know more than I do."

Turns out, other events involving the actress actually far more interesting and impressive than her dating life:

Jessica recently scaled all 19,340 feet og Mt. Kilimanjaro with a group of climbers, including Emile Hirsch, to raise awareness of the global water crisis. Way to go, people!

When Audrina Patridge is calling you out for having too plastic surgery, you've got issues. Then again, Heidi Montag is probably just thrilled to be mentioned at all.

After all, The Hills star insists on calling herself a pop star and claims her debut album is on par with Michael Jackson's Thriller. Whatever keeps her in the news.

Audrina's take on Heidi Montag's plastic surgery is that it's her body and her choice, but at the same time, she herself wouldn't be tempted to go nearly that far.

"I haven't seen how she looks, so it's hard for me to comment on it, but these are her decisions, and as long as Heidi's happy, that's all that matters," Audzo said.

Very diplomatic.

  • Surgeried

Audrina Patridge has only mild criticism for her plastic pal.

Rumors that Audrina herself has fake boobs and has undergone other plastic surgery procedures in the past have circulated widely, but she's never confirmed it.

Heidi, on the other hand, seems to milk it for attention. Frightening.

Even while showing the 'Tag support, Audrina Patridge admits surprise at the number of procedures she had. Let's just say she's on par with MJ in something.

"I think it's a case of, 'To each their own,'" she said at Kari Feinstein's Style Lounge at Zune in Hollywood, "but 10 procedures in one day is a little much."
