Worst parents ever Richard and Mayumi Heene have officially pleaded guilty to a felony and misdemeanor charge, respectively, stemming from the now-infamous Balloon Boy hoax that shocked and appalled the world last month.

A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for December 23.

Appearing in a Ft. Collins, Colo., courtroom Friday, the Heenes admitted concocting and lying about son Falcon's fake "flight" aboard a saucer-shaped balloon.

"This is designed to keep the family together," says Richard's attorney David Lane. The couple's kids "seem like happy, well-adjusted kids," says Lane. "[They have] huddled together as a family. These are well cared for, well-loved kids."

A subdued Richard Heene pleaded guilty to a felony charge of attempting to influence a public servant. He could face 90 days in jail and a $500,000 fine.

He also may be responsible for restitution, at leads $62,000 more. If the worst dad ever does go to jail, it certainly won't be for as long as some might like.

Mayumi Heene pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of false reporting to authorities, which she admitted in an affidavit. She could face up to 60 days.

Richard Heene also requested that bond be modified so he can seek employment next week in New York and California. Who would employ this loser?

Lane declined to discuss it, but said: "Richard can't own a firearm [as a felon], but other than that he is a free person to do whatever any free person does."

Might he profit from the hoax? Rest assured, ladies and gentlemen: "Colorado has a statute that prohibits him from profiting from wrongdoing," says Lane.

Serves him right. Sucker.

Whitney Port appeared on the hit reality show The Hills, which followed a group of young women battling it out on the cut-throat career ladder in L.A.

Or at least it originally did, before it became about desperate girls fighting over loser Justin-Bobby. Anyway, Whitney later went on to star in The City.

Jay and Whit

Her spinoff has become compulsive viewing for fashionistas across the globe – and for many, it's the new guilty pleasure, even more than The Hills.

Below are excerpts from Whitney's Q&A with You magazine (UK) ...

Q: We watched you fall for and break up with Aussie musician Jay Lyon on The City. It can’t be much fun living out a relationship on camera.

Whitney Port: The most embarrassing moment of my TV career came when I found out from a friend that my boyfriend was cheating on me. Whoever you are and however it happens, that is a humbling, horrible moment, but when cameras are on you, waiting for your reaction, you just feel pathetic and totally naive. And you wonder, did the producers know he was cheating? It gets very difficult to know who to trust.

Q: Who do you trust?

Whitney Port: I trust my gut feeling and my oldest friends. Producers are a different matter – you never know when they are trying to get a rise out of you.

Q: Could you be the new Carrie Bradshaw?

Whitney Port: I love Sex and the City, but I’m more of a Charlotte! However much MTV would love it, I am not going to go on a different date every night.

Q: Who would be your dream date?

Whitney Port: Ryan Gosling. I don’t really have a type, but I have a big crush on him.

Q: What gets more of a work out than Kellan Lutz's abs?
A: Our DVR on Thursday nights!

Every network brings its A-game to the small screen on Thursdays, which might explain why there are more typos on THG than usual today. Our fingers are tired from so much remote control work!

Therefore, we've left the recapping and reviewing of various shows and episodes to our friends at TV Fanatic. Below, we've linked to their summaries of The Vampire Diaries, The Office and more. Enjoy...

  • Damon revealed his master plan, and then got his heart broken, on an incredible installment of The Vampire Diaries.
  • Storylines continued to drag and characters continued to bore us to death on FlashForward.
  • A virgin took so much Viagra on his wedding night that he couldn't shed his erection on Private Practice. Seriously.
  • Good news: Meredith returned to work on Grey's Anatomy. Bad news: Izzie came back.

  • In intentionally funny programming, The Office quotes and employees slayed us. As usual.
  • We didn't follow everything that took place on Fringe, but that's often the case on this great, mysterious drama.
  • Alec Baldwin was up to his usual, ridiculous, hilarious tricks on 30 Rock; but Abed and his Community quotes may soon rival Jack Donaghy's dead-pan deliveries.

For someone considered to be a fashion icon, Kim Kardashian sure ganks her style from many other celebrities.

The reality star has been featured in more face-offs than any other THG subject.

She's battled Bethenny Frankel. She's often borrowed dresses from her sisters. And, most recently, she's been spotted in public in the same outfit as Ciara.

This is a growing, troubling trend for Kim, whose identity as the most attention-starved member of her own family is already in danger. Compare her and the aforementioned singer below:

Ciara vs. Kim

Who looks better in this dress?

In her latest Maxim spread, Aubrey O'Day clearly expects readers to drop their jaw in amazement over how sexy and alluring she is.

She should be excited to know, therefore, that our mouth is indeed open... but it's because we're yawning, not fawning.

O'Day's water-filled pictorial might have been sexier if we hadn't already seen her oiled-up and half-naked on Twitter.

Or stripped-down and entirely nude in Playboy.

But there's nothing new to get excited about in Maxim. If the singer truly wants to be shocking, she'd pose with many layers of clothing on. That would earn her more headlines at this point.

As media and fame whores go, there's Speidi and there's everyone else.

The gruesome twosome from The Hills is so shameless about their ambition to be famous that their ambition to be famous is their M.O. There is no cover story, or ostensible reason for being. They exist so we will cover them.

Cheers to a Fake Relationship

And we do. Because that's what makes Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt so entertaining. Who else would write a book called How to Be Famous: Our Guide to Looking the Part, Playing the Press and Becoming a Tabloid Fixture.

It's so delightfully straightforward, we almost admire them. Almost.

Recently, Playboy jumped the shark by featuring Heidi Montag nude. Now it's gone back for a second jump-around with the following Q&A with Speidi ...

Q: What led you to decide to write this particular book together?

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: They always say, "Write what you know," and we know how to be famous. Plus, we're both extremely giving people.

What good is having all of this knowledge if you don't share it with others for the low, low price of $19.99, available online and at bookstores everywhere?

This book didn't require much planning. It's like if you asked Michael Jordan to write a book on how to dunk, or Bono to write one on how to be a rock star.

Q: Aren't you worried that revealing your strategies for becoming a celebrity and remaining in the public eye may have a detrimental effect on your fame?

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: We're not worried at all. Our fame has never been about being liked. Being liked is fine, and we love it when people come up to us and say nice things, but we're famous because we keep people guessing.

What's more surprising than a famous person telling people how they did it?

Q: You reference Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in the book as two celebrities who really know how to manipulate the press to their advantage. Are you at all concerned that [Brangelina] may have a negative reaction to your description of them?

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: Well, we wouldn't want to piss them off. She might steal Spencer - you know, because she steals people's husbands! But seriously, we would love to sit down and discuss fame with them.

Q: What's on your agenda in 2010?

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: Adopt an African baby, date Vince Vaughn, shave our heads, pretend Spencer is trapped in a balloon and have octuplets.

There was mania in Madrid yesterday.

There was sexiness in Spain.

There was awesomeness and alliteration acroess the Atlantic, as Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart continued to tour the globe and publicize the November 20 release of New Moon.

Something has gotten into Pattinson during this press tour, as he's actually been spotted smiling at every stop.

Perhaps that has something to do with spending so much time with Stewart, who Catherine Hardwicke confirmed as Rob's girlfriend earlier this week. Was there ever any doubt, though?

Check out the happy, autograph-signing stars below:

  • Madrid Mania

According to his estranged wife, and quite possibly New York State law, the recent leaking of phone call tapes to the press by Michael Lohan wasn't just a d!ck move.

It was also illegal.

Some legal experts say the father of Lindsay Lohan could wind up back behind bars - familiar surroundings for him - after releasing tapes of his family's phone calls.

The reason? Simple. M-Lo wasn't allowed to be on the calls in the first place. That's according to a protective order Dina obtained in Nassau County, N.Y., in 2005.

The order bars Michael from contacting Dina by email or phone 'til 2011. The release of the tapes, one of which was made in 2008, could be the smoking gun.

DISH SERVED COLD: Michael Lohan has been dishing out serious embarrassment to Lindsay lately, and she and mom Dina are out to make him pay - with jail time.

If police and prosecutors determine he broke the rules of the protective order, as Dina alleges this week, Michael could be looking at some quality time in prison.

Dina Lohan's lawyers have already contacted the Nassau County D.A. about Michael, who shows no signs of abating - he's threatening to leak more on Lindsay.

Sadly for Lindsay, there are no laws subjecting him to punishment from being an insensitive, deadbeat dad, a backstabber or an awful human being. Too bad.

They were spotted together at Wednesday night's Country Music Awards, but fans shouldn't get the wrong idea.

Julianne Hough says her and Chuck Wicks are still taking time apart.

"It's a good thing for us right now," the beauty told Us Weekly. "We are both extremely busy and working on our careers and really focused on that."

Wicks is likely also focused on finding a girlfriend with whom he can actually have sexual intercourse.

Hough says she's not experiencing an ounce of heartbreak and that seeing Wicks at this week's awards ceremony wasn't awkward.

"We are such good friends," she said. "We will always continue being good friends."

Sadly, it doesn't sound like Julianne will return to Dancing with the Stars any time soon. We mourn her departure from that show every Monday night when it airs.

After producing weekly Unintentional Comedy Hall of Fame moments as the single worst actress on TV, Ashlee Simpson was fired from Melrose Place.

But the CW ahow has no intention of letting her and equally awful, fellow pink-slipped counterpart Colin Egglesfield fade away without one last hurrah.

The two engage in a sex-filled farewell before packing their bags. How racy is it?  Colin said: "There are very few clothes involved in the near future."

He adds of Ashlee's character, Violet: "She's up for anything."

Doesn't mean she's good at anything, but, good to hear!

What brings these talentless thespians together for their last hurrah?

Sources close to the show say Colin and Ashlee actually have not one but two steamy sex scenes in the next few episodes, before they leave around episode 13.

That puts their departure around early next year, and it looks like our last impressions of them will be saucy ones. Rumor has it they're almost completely naked.

"Things get pretty violent and kind of crazy," Egglesfield says of his final story line. "Auggie ends up hitting the bottle and falls off the deep end a little bit."

Auggie's drinking was to be more developed, but because of his exit it was cut short. On the plus side, Heather Locklear's return engagement starts Tuesday!
