Jon Gosselin, who was recently sued by TLC for breach of contract, is retaliating against the cable network that employs him with a $5 million lawsuit of his own.

TLC sued Jon after he barred the network from filming his kids, saying the show is harmful to them (after they cut him out and renamed the show Kate Plus 8).

That position is a reversal from late July, when Kate's brother and sister-in-law, Kevin and Jodi Kreider, claimed the reality show was harming the Gosselin kids.

Jon said then that such claims were ridiculous and his kids loved the show.

In his lawsuit, Jon is likely to argue that TLC is preventing him from earning a living with a contract that is too restrictive. He wants out of that thing bad.

However, in its own court filing, TLC noted that it offered to keep paying Jon when it planned to change the show from Jon & Kate Plus 8 to Kate Plus 8.

GETTIN' PAID: Jon says TLC is infringing on his right to!

The network's initial breach of contract suit against Jon alleges the father of eight violated his contract with unauthorized business deals and interviews.

TLC also contends that Jon is legally able to go back to his former job in IT. Well, okay, sure. But what about a real living as a semi-famous douchebag?

Gosselin's lawyers Mike and Mark Heller are also likely to argue that their client lacked sufficient legal representation when he signed his contract with TLC.

The breach of contract suit gets underway in a Maryland court on Monday, December 14, when Jon Gosselin faces a preliminary injunction hearing.

Along with his on-and-off girlfriend Hailey Glassman, one-time date Kate Major and former pal Michael Lohan, Gosselin himself will be forced to testify.

Somebody's gotta ask him about those hair plugs.

Aaron Carter didn't simply grow into a solid dancer this season.

He actually grew up as a human being.

The previously snotty young singer got the boot from Dancing with the Stars last night, but he reacted in a mature, humble manner.

"One thing I will always remember and take from this competition is definitely the lessons that I've learned," Carter said. "I've grown so much with your compliments and your criticisms, so thank you. Thank you for helping me to be able to grow on this show."

Head judge Len Goodman had nothing but positive things to say about 21-year-old former star.

"I think the dedication that you have shown week after week is absolutely fantastic. I think you're an inspiration to all young people that anything is possible, and if you were my son, I would be so proud of you. But more important, you be proud of yourself, because you've been great."

The semifinals are now set. Joanna Krupa, Kelly Osbourne, Mya and Donny Osmond will each perform two routines next week.

Who do you think will take home the crystal ball trophy?

The Gossip Girl cast has offered only vague details about her appearance, but Lady Gaga herself recently teased her upcoming cameo on the show next Monday.

"First of all, my sister's a huge fan, and she's 17 years old. She was like 'Oh my God, you have to do it,'" she told MTV of her eason for appearing on the CW hit.

"And I'd seen it. It's a great show."

We doubt the cameo will feature Lady Gaga unmasked. Expect elaborate costumes - and not your standard run-of-the-mill musical guest star appearance.

"I hate most TV show performances, because they kind of come in out of nowhere," she said. "It has nothing to do with the story and nobody cares."

What does she have in mind instead?

Weird Lady Gaga Hair

Lady Gaga made sure her Gossip Girl appearance was unique.

Rather than showing up on the set for a day, doing her thing and going home, Gaga met with producers to ensure she could do a performance she loved.

"I was like, 'Look, the reason I want to do this is because I'm trying to say something that is not exactly mainstream. So, if I can say it on your show, that would be, like, a real coup d'état for me as a performance artist.'"

Wonder what that could mean ... that's she's a hermaphrodite?

Okay, that's not gonna happen. But what she the result is a "crazy performance art" piece in which "I am the narrator behind what's been going on with the Gossip Girl characters and make the song part of the moment."

Now that should be something. Give her credit for uniqueness.

Here's a promo of Gaga's Gossip Girl visit ...

Julianne Hough has a new hair color.

Now, the hunt is on for a new man!

A source has confirmed to People that the gorgeous singers have ended their relationship. The insider said: "This was mutual. They needed some time apart."

Note to Julianne: are you lonely yet? If so, you know where to find The Hollywood Gossip.

Over, Out

Hough and Wicks dated for about a year. They got close while touring with Brad Paisley and teamed up on last season's Dancing with the Stars.

"The minute we met it was perfect," Hough said in December. "The first date we had we both had that feeling like we were going to fall in love with each other."

The pair will actually both be in attendance at tonight's Country Music Association Awards. Will there be any fireworks? Who wore the worst outfit on the red carpet?

THG will cover every aspect of this event tomorrow!

The judge in the Michael Jackson estate case nixed Joe Jackson's latest round objections to the star's will and to its executors, saying MJ's dad has no legal standing.

Basically, he can't object because he's not named in the will anyway, and his claims are, well, baseless. John Branca and John McClain will be appointed executors.

According to legal papers filed by Joe Jackson yesterday, Michael Jackson never signed his will, dated 2002, and the named executors have committed fraud.

There was a clerical mistake in the will, which we talked about a few weeks back. The document indicates Jackson signed the will in L.A., yet he was in NYC.

It was in fact signed in New York and the witnesses saw Michael put pen to paper, one of them just wrote L.A. instead of New York. The will remains valid.

Joe Jackson will stop at nothing for headlines.

But Joe insisted this was no mere clerical mistake and that his son never signed the will. Joe Jackson claims John Branca and John McClain should be booted as administrators because they concealed what Joe calls a "fraud."

What did he hope to gain from this? Probably just an allowance.

Joe claims Michael fired Branca in 2003 and believed the attorney embezzled the music icon's money "illegally into off-shore accounts in the Caribbean."

The judge wasn't having it, though. Thankfully.

Holly Madison appeared on the season premiere of the new Girls Next Door, hanging out with the Shannon Twins in Las Vegas.

Away from the camera, however, this busty blonde and former top girlfriend of Hugh Hefner has mounting disdain for Hef's new play things.

“I had a great time with Hef and the girls when they came to see Peepshow and hang out in Vegas. I don't watch the other episodes though, because it kind of makes me mad," she told Fox News.

Hot for Holly

From where does this anger stem? The unoriginality of Karissa, Kristina and Crystal Harris.

"The girls need to focus on what makes them unique and not doing the same things Bridget, Kendra and I have already done on the show," Madison said. "Even camping in the backyard was an idea I had for an episode that we never got around to shooting. And guess what they just showed? The girls camping in the backyard."

Ah, yes, what makes these new girls unique. They're all blonde, they're all banging a senior citizen and they all possess a desperate need for love and attention.

That makes them entirely different from Bridget, Kendra and Holly, right?

There's good news and bad news related to the latest issue of Men's Health.

First, the good: Taylor Lautner is on the cover!

Now, the bad: he's wearing a shirt.

Still, the Twilight Saga star talks a lot about his workout routine inside the magazine, allowing fans to picture him shirtless and sweating. That's something at least, right?

Here are excerpts from his interview:

On getting bigger for Eclipse: "My character continues to grow, so I’d like to pack on at least a few more lean pounds.”

On taking time off from the gym: "If you constantly pound your muscles, they'll never have time to repair."

On cutting down cardio to build up bulk: “I was exercising so hard that I began to lose weight.”

Sorry, folks, no discussions here about Taylor Swift or their burgeoning relationship. Perhaps when he covers Men's Gossip, we can learn more about that aspect of Taylor's life.

If there's one thing Peter Andre takes very seriously, it's his children. If there's another, it's that hair. How does it stay in place like that? What product does he use?

Anyway. If there's a third thing, it's his reputation.

The ex-husband of Katie Price sued Britain's Sunday People earlier this year after they reported he had an affair while married to the busty model known as Jordan.

Andre called the infidelity rumors "untrue and hurtful" and apparently they were. A judge ruled in his favor and he won a substantial reward in damages over it.

He's equally adamant about proving he's a good father, too.

The reality star and singer is suing Now magazine for publishing a story this summer suggesting he was at fault for accidents suffered by Katie's disabled son, Harvey.

Peter Andre Smiles

Peter Andre has a reason to smile: He's a good guy!

Harvey's father is Katie's ex, Dwight Yorke, but Andre has raised him since he was very young and still raises him. His attorney released the following statement:

"Mr. Andre was also said to have demanded sick sexual threesomes from his wife, which horrified her and which she did not enjoy, feeling used and like a sex doll."

"Mr. Andre was said to be lying in portraying himself as a loving father and husband. He would never do anything to hurt his children, whom he loves very much."

The magazine admitted it lie and they accepted the story was untrue. Andre had sued the mag for £300,000, but no word on how much he was actually awarded.

Take that, fake celebrity gossip writers! Better watch your back and stick to Robsten or Jennifer Aniston when you need your fake headlines this week, OK! and Star.

Shanna Moakler is really sorry.

During a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, the former beauty pageant queen referred to Khloe Kardashian as a "donkey."

Tweeted Khloe in response: "Who is shana moakler??? I have no idea who this girl is but I guess she is talking about me. Talk on honey...I can care less LOL."

We're shocked by this whole thing. We had no idea anyone watched The Wendy Williams Show!

  • Pic of Shanna Moakler
  • Khloe Picture

Moakler actually apologized immediately, Tweeting to Khloe: "You are right. We don't know each other personally and I apologize for my comment this morning," adding in a statement: "I feel really bad. I shouldn't have said it."

But is this feud really over?

Shanna mixed it up with Kim Kardashian in July 2008 because she thought Kim slept with her ex-husband, Travis Barker. It was a silly accusation, of course.

Barker is way too pale for Kim's taste.

Man. Either Kristin Cavallari really wants to stick it to Audrina Patridge, or The Hills producers are really working overtime to stir up the contrived drama we love.

The fake relationship of Kristin and Justin-Bobby Brescia has been a primary focal point this season. Justin-Bobby, of course, is Audrina Patridge's dirtbag ex.

She's moved on now, though. To Tal Cooperman, who also dated Audrina.

“It’s brand new. They’re having a lot of fun enjoying getting to know each other better,” says a source of Kristin and Tal, co-owner of DCMA Collective clothing.

“It’s not for the show. They hit it off and have been hanging out off-camera.”

All together now: Yeah, right!

Kristin Cavallari clearly has a type: Guys who have once hit it with Audrina Patridge, who MTV conveniently gives her the phone numbers of and pays her to pursue.

According to sources, Cooperman and Cavallari enjoyed a date night Thursday in Los Angeles, where they were spotted partying at an ESPN bash. Fun.

They also shared a sushi dinner at Nobu and kissing at West Hollywood hotspot Voyeur, where we're sure they tried to keep an extremely low profile.

“[Kristin Cavallari and Tal Cooperman] were making out on one of the club’s VIP stages after midnight,” says a clubgoer. “They were all over each other.”

The duo made sure to keep things under wraps (yeah, right, again!)  by leaving the club separately ... but only after sealing their night with a kiss. HOT.

We wish this new couple all the best. Although we don't expect it will last that long. Call us crazy. Give it a few weeks and she'll be with Corey Bohan.
