Tough month for Al Gore. First, he announced a split from wife Tipper after 40 years, then was accused of sexual assault, then Prince declared the Internet "over."

Fortunately, the former V.P.'s wife still has his back regarding the sex scandal.

Al Gore Sexual Assault

Tipper says the couple's separations nothing to do with the sexual assault allegations made against him by Molly Hagerty, nor does she buy the masseuse's story.

Tabloids have suggested that Hagerty's claim that Al Gore forced himself on her during a massage in a Portland hotel was the last straw in their unraveling union.

Not so, Tipper Gore and family friends say.

"And they also say Al had an affair with a Tennessee Titans cheerleader one week, a Hollywood producer the next," says a friend close to both Al and Tipper Gore.

Adds the friend, "None of these is true. Both Al and Tipper are baffled by the sexual assault allegations, frustrated to see his name dragged through the mud."

Al and Tipper Gore have split, but not because of any massage gone awry.

Another friend of Tipper's says that "Tipper has known about these allegations since Al found out about them himself. She has known that massage has been very much a part of his health regimen for many, many, many years."

Furthermore, "she doesn't believe any of the allegations that this woman [Hagerty] is making and they played no role whatsoever in their decision to separate."

The friend says Tipper Gore is unnerved to find herself back in the glare just after the couple's June 1 announcement of their separation was supposed to afford her a life outside of the spotlight that comes with her husband's public policy work.

It could get worse before it gets better.

On June 30, police reopened an investigation into the allegations, citing "procedural issues" with how the statement by Al Gore's accuser was handled last year. Gore has denied wrongdoing and has not been charged with a crime.

Do you believe Al Gore assaulted Molly Hagerty?

Another Bachelorette couple bites the dust - and one we thought had a shot.

Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, who got engaged on the previous season finale of The Bachelorette, have called off their engagement, according to reports.

This leaves Trista and Ryan Sutter as the only Bachelorette couple still together, with Jason and Molly Mesnick the lone survivors from The Bachelor side.

"I love him and I'm really sad, but I have to look out for me," Jillian Harris said.

"We're both kind of resetting," Swiderski added. "Jillian isn't happy and I'm definitely sad about the whole thing, but we've got to work through some things."

Ed says that they will do so "on our own if we decide to move forward."

Jillian and Ed called it quits. Did you see that coming?

We don't expect this to turn into a public war of words like the split between Bachelor stars Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi. But it's still a sad situation.

Last August, reports swirled about Ed Swiderski juggling two girlfriends while wooing Harris on the show (and even slept with one after proposing to her).

They seemed to be fine, as the couple mostly stayed out of the spotlight, then announced their wedding plans on this past season finale of The Bachelor.

But recently, things apparently took a turn for the worse.

"There's bumps on the road, and we don't always deal with them properly," Harris said in an interview just last month. "Our life is not always perfect."

Sorry to hear it ... but call us, Jill. You can do better. As for Ed, is it too late for him to rock those '70s-style basketball shorts on Bachelor Pad?

This is both sweet and nauseating.

In the aftermath of Lindsay Lohan's 90-day jail sentencing yesterday afternoon, Kim Kardashian has Tweeted support of her fellow promiscuous celebrity. She wrote:

Holding All Her Kards

Sending positivity your way @LindsayLohan Love you! Everyone please send LL your sweet prayers. U never know when someone really needs it.

No offense to Kim or Lindsay, but we think God has better things to do with His time than answer prayers related to an alcoholic trainwreck who will likely benefit from a stint in jail. Lohan needs some wake up call to turn around her life, doesn't she?

Two women, four huge breasts, zero talent, one jail sentence.

In between sobs and lewd nail painting, Lindsay replied to Kim and Tweeted: “thank you so much @KimKardashian – thanks for being such a good friend, it means a lot to me."

Fortunately for Lohan, she'll meet many new good friends in jail, too. Especially when she drops the soap.

As we gear up toward what can only be described as an epic series finale July 13, the penultimate episode of The Hills certainly featured a lot of things going on.

Some of them possibly even real!

Heidi Montag's sister Holly and Darlene Egelhoff, their mom, lamented that Heidi has gone totally off the rails. They've been trying to reach her but can't.

Kristin Cavallari puts it all out there and says she has feelings for Brody Jenner, but he isn't really reciprocating the fake love. Lo and Stephanie also star.

Here's THG's recap of Tuesday's The Hills, "Loves Me Not" ...

O RLY? YA RLY: Brody ignores Kristin and texts "someone else."

Stephanie, Lo and Holly talk about the ca-ra-zy drama that went down in Costa Rica over lunch. Gotta rehash all the details, and totally naturally. Plus 5.

Brody says he's hanging out with a new girl. How come The Hills calls "Ryan Cabrera" by first and last name, yet won't say Avril Lavigne at all? Minus 5.

Brody's friend Josh, who races motorcycles, introduces himself to Stephanie Pratt, and the pair have an instant connection - they don't drink. Plus 4.

Holly Montag picks her mom up from the airport. They'll have to wait for Heidi to come around. Minus 3 for falsely getting our hopes up for Speidi, Hills.

Kristin tells Stacie how Brody wants to talk and it's, like, her chance to finally tell him how she feels. Minus 6, because it's really the producers' chance.

SIDEKICK STEPH: She-Pratt's falling fast and hard for a new man.

Holly tries calling, but her voicemail isn't activated. We're sure that's real, much like Spencer's apology to LC, which she wasn't actually listening to. Minus 5.

Scott surprises Lo on their one year anniversary by asking her if she wants to move in together. Plus 7, because while we really don't care, they're very sweet!

Kristin lays it all out there. Brody says he's sorry, but he's met someone else. Minus 14 because we know this, and Kristin does too, and it's a famous musician.

Nearly lost for words, Darlene tells Holly that since Heidi Montag has been gone, it feels like she's mourning the loss of a child. Not at all melodramatic. Plus 8.

Kristin cries when she tells Lo that Brody rejected her and is seeing someone else. Bull$h!t, since she's dating Miguel Medina, a Hills cameraman! Minus 20.

TOTAL: -27. SEASON: -41.

It was a fun and romantic holiday weekend for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

On Monday night, the couple shocked fans at a screening of Eclipse in Century City. They appeared on the scene - to shrieks and screams, of course - and greeted those in attendance.

Kristen said she and Rob just wanted to “thank [the fans] for making it such a great weekend," while Pattinson was his usual, funny self, adding: “I hope you like the movie, because otherwise, this would be really embarrassing."

Watch the sexy surprise below:

Following this event, Robsten proceeded on a romantic date night.

The pair snuck through an underground entrance and into one of Rob's favorite West Hollywood restaurants, SoHo House. Spotted eating and drinking, the two looked "very happy" reported a source to E! News.

They finished their meal, left together and... let's give the couple some privacy, okay?!? We'll just say they had a very pleasant evening together and leave it at that.

Last week on The City, Whitney Port and Roxy Olin's professional relationship took a turn for the worse. Now the latter is packing her things and moving out!

Her tenure at work a disaster-in-waiting from the start, Roxy leaving was inevitable. Now she's searching for a new apartment but NYC rent isn't that cheap.

Here's THG's plus-minus recap ...

Roxy's financial woes force her to ask her director/actor father, Ken Olin, for help. It's difficult not to see Ken as the guy from Brothers & Sisters ... Minus 5.

Erin Kaplan runs into Whitney Port and asks to use her Whitney Eve line for an Elle shoot with Ashley Greene. Eclipse and The City, together at last! Plus 6.

MOVING OUT: Whether Roxy Olin is moving up is another story.

Olivia Palermo is resistive towards the Whitney Eve pieces, shockingly, despite Joe's insistence that they use them. Minus 4, because we just hate her so hard.

Roxy Olin refuses to speak to Whitney at People's Revolution. Plus 3 for the palpable awkwardness and Kelly stepping in, telling them to put it aside ... STAT.

The tension boils over in the front row of a charity fashion show, however, and Kelly is forced to intervene when the girls' fight starts to cause a scene. Minus 7.

Whitney finds out from Samantha that Roxy started looking for a place. Minus 6 for the off-chance this clears the way for Stephanie Pratt to join the cast.

ASHLEY IN WHITNEY EVE: Greene helped Port beat expectations.

Ashley Greene wears a jacket by Whitney Eve during her interview for Elle. Plus 5. Olivia interviews her but sidesteps asking about the jacket. You b!tch. Minus 5.

Olivia tells Joe she's planning a trip to Japan and asks if she can produce pieces from there for Elle. Plus 7 for the slim chance she gets stranded there indefinitely.

Plus 4 more 'cause Naturally, Seth and Erin are excited about Olivia's trip if it means her absence might become permanent. We're all thinking it, they just said it.

Ken shoots down Roxy's request for money. Plus 8. Whitney comes home to find Roxy packed and ready to move out of their apartment. It's a little sad. Minus 2.

TOTAL: +8. SEASON: -4.

Thank goodness Dean McDermott has been released from the hospital.

Sure, we're glad this reality star is healing well from last week's dirt bike accident - but mostly we're just happy to never hear about pain in his penis ever again.

Emaciated Tori

During Tori Spelling's husband's hospital stay, he apparently suffered from an unusual, painful accident; and, naturally, felt the need to tell the world about it. Over the course of a few hours on July 2 and July 3, Dean Tweeted:

OMG !!!!! My catheter is stuck and won't come out. I'm waiting for the Doctor to get here and give it a try. Gotta be honest, I'm scared... I had the worst night. Catheter cut me up coming out. Unbelievable pain. I got a fever of 104 and was throwing up. Fun, WOW!

The worst part of this? It gives the couple ammunition for an entire season of the most contrived reality show on television.

Prior to her husband's release, Tori milked the incident for all the sympathy she could.

On Friday, she Tweeted: "Rented New Moon for 2nite. Lonely w/o @deanracer. Just got home from hospital. Taco Bell and Team Edward!"

First, who refers to her man by his Twitter handle?!? Must Spelling really market Dean's social networking account at all times?

Second, Team Edward?!? Come on. THG is on Team Jacob all the way!

Well, World Wide Web. You had a good run while it lasted.

According to a music legend, the computer age has already passed us up.

Indeed, Prince is coming out with a new album ("20Ten"), which will be available as a free insert in various magazine and newspapers in Europe this week. A release date in America has not yet been announced, but one thing is for certain: fans will NOT be able to purchase it from iTunes.

“The Internet’s completely over,” Prince told The Daily Mirror. "The Internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”

Hmmm... if the Internet is over, how are you reading this right now? We just blew your mind, didn't we?

It's time to take a side in this feud. Vote now:

Is there a new man in Jennifer Aniston's life?

As in an actual new man, not just co-stars she's supposedly friends with benefits with (Gerard Butler, Bradley Cooper) or ex-husbands she's sneaking around with?

Raising Her Hand

That's the rumor, and the new guy is actor Christopher Gartin, with whom she was spotted having dinner last week at her favorite hangout, the Sunset Tower Hotel.

If it's true, the man doesn't kiss and tell.

"No comment," he said when asked about their status. Either way, Jennifer didn't seem too happy to see the paparazzi Thursday night as they tried to leave:

Jennifer Aniston really wants to keep her life private, or doesn't want the paparazzi to know she's dating Christopher Gartin. [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

As you can see, the actress ducked and covered her face when photographers caught him driving her home after their dinner together, although who knows why.

Chris Gartin seems like a good guy.

He is 42, has dozens of credits to his name, hails from New York and was previously married to an event planner. Word is that Jen's BFF Courteney Cox set them up.

Think this is for real Think they're a good match? How will he react to this week's tabloid covers proclaiming that she's having a baby? We can only wait and see.

Tony Romo he's not. But Eric Johnson isn't too shabby himself.

"He's one of the nicest guys around," says an NFL insider who has worked with the ex-San Francisco 49ers player and current Jessica Simpson plaything.

The source notes, later stating the obvious a bit by adding, "I'm surprised he is dating Jessica Simpson. She is such a big star and he is so reserved."

The guy also went to Yale ... go figure!

Johnson, who also played briefly for the New Orleans Saints, definitely has experience with the limelight, however, having excelled in sports all his life.

Jessica Simpson Sunglasses

Former NFL star Eric Johnson couldn't catch on with a pro team for that long ... but he's got quite a catch in Jessica Simpson. Here's hoping he doesn't fumble it away.

The 6' 3" Needham, Mass., native broke 11 school records while playing wide receiver for Yale University. He's also a former academic All-American.

Called "The Big Nerd" by Yale friends, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, "He's very smart, and one of the most down-to-earth athletes I know."

Simpson began dating Johnson in May after friends introduced them. He's currently separated from his wife, Keri, who filed for divorce earlier this year.

"He is the polar opposite of what you think of when you say 'player,' " says the source who knows him well. "When I met him, he was driving a Prius."
