On Showtime's Dexter, evil doers should be afraid of Michael C. Hall. He'll slice them up into little pieces and deposit them into the ocean.

In real life, though, it's an awful disease that should have known better than to mess with this incredible actor.

Hall released a statement today that said: "I feel fortunate to have been diagnosed with an imminently treatable and curable condition (Hodgkin’s lymphoma), and I thank my doctors and nurses for their expertise and care."

His spokesman, Craig Bankey, said his client is in remission, but will continue with scheduled treatments.

We wish Hall the absolute best - and can't wait to see how he takes this pain out on various bad guys next season on Dexter.

Renowned punk rocker Jay Reatard, real name Jimmie Lee Lindsey, was found dead in his Memphis home early yesterday, according to friends. He was 29.

He died in his sleep, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Goner Records, which has released a number of Jay's singles and EPs, posted the following statement to its official site on Wednesday afternoon:

"It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our good friend Jay Reatard. Jay was as full of life as anyone we have ever met, and he was responsible for so many memorable moments as a person and artist."

"We’re honored to have known him, and we will miss him terribly."

R.I.P. Jay Reatard (1980-2010).

Known for his energy, prolific output and outlandish stage behavior, Jay Reatard recently released his newest album, Watch Me Fall, to critical acclaim in August.

He will be missed!

We hope you're sitting down. This may come as a shock, but sources close to Casey Johnson say her relationship with Tila Tequila was just a huge publicity stunt.

This came from Casey's own mouth in the weeks before her tragic death last week, according to two of the late Johnson & Johnson heiress' friends cited by TMZ.

Bisexual

The friends came forward today and said that they each received separate calls from Casey Johnson saying her engagement to Tila Tequila was "all for show."

Casey told them she met her only three days before the infamous engagement video and made it very clear to both that she and Tila were not together.

May Casey Johnson rest in peace. May Tila Tequila go away forever.

Oddly enough, one of the friends even says Tila was in the room when Casey made the calls. We don't know if this makes Tila's recent actions better or worse.

The publicity whore has been Twittering up a storm, effectively play the grieving victim, elicit sympathy and milking Johnson's death for everything it's worth.

Fake mourning your fake fiancee for a 16th minute of fame? Even pretending to be on suicide watch? That's a new low, even for the lowest form of life on earth.

Tila is now saying she wants custody of Casey's daughter too. Not that she was ever married to Johnson or has legal standing ... but why let that stop you?

Free of her hideous reverse mullet and even more revolting husband, Kate Gosselin is set to return to TV later this year in a brand new TLC series of her very own.

According to reports, Kate will be "trying different jobs and tasks and showing how she performs in different environments" on the upcoming as-yet-untitled show.

Hmm. Pretty sure that was the synopsis of New York Goes to Work.

Only Tiffany Pollard is more entertaining. Who wants to see a grating nag work at McDonalds? Don't you have to have some appeal to make that worth watching?

Sorry, but no hair extensions can alter that personality.

This is what we imagine Kate's new show will be like.

TLC has not confirmed plans for the show, which sources say is slated to start in late spring or early summer, but is in talks to put Kate back on TV for some reason.

Plans for a Kate Gosselin talk show, conceptualized as a new take on The View for working moms, were mercifully scrapped last month after execs weren't thrilled.

Friday, January 29 is a special day. It marks the 35th birthday of Rachel Uchitel, the very first Tiger Woods mistress (well, the first we learned of) - and you're invited!

What, did you expect a quiet night in?

Rachel Uchitel and Husband

The Manhattan club promoter will be partying with friends and "Celebrity DJs" at the club 251PB in Palm Beach, Florida, where she's been staying since early December.

On the invite, Rachel Uchitel is trumpeted as a "Celebrity Socialite." Guess it's better than "Celebrity adulterer" or "Tiger Woods' Crazy, Ambien-Driven Sex Fiend" ...

Come party with "celebrity socialite" Rachel Uchitel!

Reports of Tiger's affair with Rachel allegedly led to an epic fight with Elin Woods November 27 and the car crash that exposed Tiger's tawdry tales to the world.

Asked about her alleged romantic involvement with Woods, Rachel Uchitel has never commented - reportedly because she's gotten big bucks to keep quiet about it.

Sources report that Woods paid Rachel Uchitel, who the golfer was smitten with and might still be, upwards of $3 million to stay quiet about their steamy affair.

Ask her about that January 29 at Club 251PB! Guess her seven-figure payout doesn't prevent her from cashing in on her notoriety ... just explaining why she's notorious.

The 2008 U.S. presidential election is over and done with, but a new book called Game Change by New York Magazine's John Heilemann and Time's Mark Halperin has stirred up a lot of interesting gossip about the most recent White House race.

While not providing that much truly new or startling, the book has offered tremendous fodder for national political conversation. Some of the broached topics:

  • That Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) referred to Barack Obama as “light-skinned” and having "no Negro dialect unless he wanted to.”
  • That the affair between John Edwards and Rielle Hunter, his campaign videographer, was known about and kept quiet by three of his aides early.
  • That John Edwards is a delusional egomaniac whose aides called his wife Elizabeth "an abusive, intrusive, paranoid, condescending crazy woman."

  • That former President Bill Clinton was involved in an affair in 2006 that many thought would derail Hillary Clinton's 2008 run for the presidency. The woman is not named in the book, but it wouldn't be Bill's first cheating rumor.
  • That Clinton offended Ted Kennedy deeply while trying to win his endorsement for his wife's campaign by saying the following about then-candidate Obama: "A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee."
  • That John McCain's vetting of Sarah Palin was so woefully inadequate that no one from his campaign even interviewed her husband or opponents.
  • That Sarah Palin believed Saddam Hussein to be behind the attacks on 9/11, and did not understand that North and South Korea were separate.
  • That Palin is a mentally unstable person prone to wild mood swings, and was hopelessly lost in a "catatonic stupor" at one point in the campaign.

True? We may never know. But we certainly can debate - and agree that Edwards and Palin create the most entertaining reading material.

She may be only 23, but The Hills' Heidi Montag is already closing in on that many plastic surgeries. While that sounds like an exaggeration, but it's really not.

Her new single is called "I'll Do It." The lyrics suggest that she is referring to something sexual, but these words could also describe her take on any operation.

Nose. Lips. Boobs. Done, done and done. That was before she decided to go under the knife and have a staggering 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day.

"For the past three years, I've thought about what to have done," Heidi tells People, which features the plastic princess on its cover. "I'm beyond obsessed."

Plastic Surgery Addict

Has she gone too far? Depends on the paychecks, right Heidi?

If nothing else, Heidi Montag has at least been fully open about all the operations she's had to turn herself into a generic, bleach-blonde Hollywood bimbo.

But on November 20, Montag took her transformation to a new level. Keeping her family in the dark, she continued her journey to become "the best me."

Pretty soon, "the best her" will resemble Michael Jackson at this rate. Seriously, if she thinks this is what she needs to become a pop star, God help us.

Good alterations? YOU tell us! Heidi looked hotter ...

Simon Cowell is leaving American Idol after this season.

This news is very sad for those of us who appreciate Simon's sarcasm, wit, honesty and entertainment value as a whole. But it also offers an opportunity for Idol to truly branch out.

Sure, Ellen DeGeneres as a judge (starting February 9) is a departure from the show's typical, music-driven basis for selecting its panelists. However, we're talking about change fans can truly believe in...

... which brings us to our first proposed replacement for Cowell. He, along with many of the options below, might not seem equipped for the job. But hear us out, and then let us know who you wanna see sit in Simon's seat in 2011:

Barack Obama: As someone who once got 66,882,230 votes in a single day, he's the only guy more popular than the show. Or at least better known. Plus, can you imagine the criticism? "Look ... Kris ... You possess a terrific talent, but at the end of the day, Adam possesses the kind of change that can bring the music world together."

Nelson from The Simpsons: Really, how much more analysis do 90 percent of the performances need than a simple: "HA-ha!"

Donald Trump: Every critique of his will be the absolute BEST!

OBAMA, TRUMP, WOODS OR SOMEONE ELSE? WHO SHOULD BE THE NEXT AMERICAN IDOL JUDGE?

Gilbert Arenas. Pros: Will bring hip vibe, comic relief to the panel. Cons: May pull piece on a contestant after a crappy performance, as a "joke" of course.

Tiger Woods: He has a lot of free time these days and knows a lot about young talent. Just keep him away from the female contestants.

Carson Daly: If only he actually existed.

Simon Cow: He'll be moo-ved by the ballads each week and will always udder praise. Oh, wait, sorry, we thought we were writing jokes for Jay Leno.

Vanessa Lopez, the woman filing a harassment lawsuit against NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, claims the Diesel sent a menacing text message to a friend.

The quote: "Dis is da numba shut dat bitch up!"

Lopez, who claims to have been in a five-year relationship with Shaq, says it went sour after Vanessa missed her period and Shaq lashed out at her.

The Cleveland Cavaliers center allegedly reacted angrily, accusing her of sleeping with another guy, prompting Lopez to end the relationship, she says.

But then Shaq's family got involved.

Vanessa Lopez Picture

Vanessa Lopez is playing a little legal hack-a-Shaq.

Fearing for her safety, Vanessa Lopez claims Shaq's 6'6" and 6'8" sisters made verbal and physical threats against her. Besides his large, powerful, wealthy family, Lopez feared Shaq's law enforcement connections and  right to bear arms.

She also says the big fella hacked into her voice mail and text messages, using sophisticated software, and made harassing phone calls to her.

Another woman, Dominica Westling, has reportedly been romantically linked to O'Neal, who is in the process of divorcing wife Shaunie, as well.

Vanessa Lopez is no saint herself, having had shady past run-ins with three other NBA "boyfriends" - Kenyon Martin, Delonte West and JJ Redick.

All three of those relationships ended contentiously. She doesn't strike us as a serial money- and fame-grubbing NBA groupie by any means.

It's the year of the vampire.

In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, the magazine features its "Fun Fearless Males" of 2010 - and a pair of pretend blood suckers lead the way.

Paul Wesley and Kellan Lutz grace the issue's cover, as each opens up about random topics (Lutz on his vices: "I need sugar all the time and I’m obsessed with lip balm." Wesley on single life: "I can relate to being in love with one person. Dating around never appealed to me.") and each simply looks smoldering.
