How's this for an American Idol spoiler: a staff member has allegedly been telling people that the show’s creators have already chosen this season’s top four.

There are still 11 contestants America gets to choose from.

Fox had no comment, and even with rumors of producers stacking the deck with strategic song-shuffling, it’s hard to believe anyone can guarantee who makes it.

Nevertheless, the New York Daily News claims that the American Idol brass is sweet on only a select few of the remaining hopefuls and doing everything it can.

Who's allegedly making the final four and who stands no chance, if this mole is to believed? Follow the link to reveal this potential American Idol spoiler ...

A look behind the scenes of Dancing with the Stars last night and some odds for who we think is sticking around - and getting bounced - this evening:

Setting Boundaries: Belinda Carlisle imposed an 8 p.m. curfew for herself during the weeks leading up to the Dancing with the Stars premiere. But she's finding it hard to enforce. “It hasn’t worked out very well,” she joked.

Woz Up: Kathy Griffin, who once dated Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, was in the audience ... cheering on pal David Alan Grier. Good thing Wozniak’s ego isn’t easily bruised, as evidenced by his brushing off the judges' harsh critiques.

Ty-Break: Following Melissa Rycroft's sexy salsa, she waltzed right over to her personal cheering section - her parents and boyfriend. She gave a quick kiss on the lips to her beau Ty. Before she walked away, he told her, “Good job.”

Unexpected Taste: Lil’ Kim continued to dazzle the audience and judges in week two with her quick step and her choice of song, “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.”

“People are finding out a lot about me,” admitted Lil’ Kim. “I listen to classical music, rock, jazz. I even listen to landscapes sometimes - it relaxes me.”

So who's heading home tonight? We'd wager on someone named Steve.

For the first time, the bottom two couples have a chance to dance for their lives, which may seal someone's fate. Follow the jump for The Hollywood Gossip's official line on each competitor, and for some more pics from last night:

Real life isn't much different than high school, says the new GQ feature story on Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush, cleverly titled "The Saint and the Sinner."

The football star still gets the girl. The difference is, as you get older, things get a bit more complicated. Take Reggie, the Heisman-winning tailback for the New Orleans Saints, and girlfriend Kim, the 2009 edition of the storybook princess.

Her father is the late O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian. Her stepdad is Olympic decathlete Bruce Jenner. Raised in L.A., Kim Kardashian has the beautiful face, a sexy body of comic-book proportions, even her own reality show.

A sexy shot of Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush from GQ.

Kim also got famous according to the Paris Hilton blueprint after Ray J tagged that booty feverishly on tape, but that's neither here nor there at this point. The bottom line is that Reggie and Kim are pretty much the perfect Hollywood couple.

It’s up to you whether to hate 'em or hate to love 'em - just like high school. Although it's worth noting that compared to most celebrity relationships out there, these two actually seem relatively stable and normal. Bizarre, indeed.

If you're having trouble deciding which side you come down on, click to enlarge the super hot photos below (we promise they're sexier than the A-Rod Details pics):

Baseball's biggest star and biggest egomaniac posed for a series of HOT A-Rod-on-A-Rod fantasy pics in a new spread for the men's magazine Details.

Seriously, this is a weird ass collection of Alex Rodriguez photos.

We're guessing the Rod is a pretty big fan of himself. Just a hunch.

Girl-on-girl action is one thing, but guy-on-guy? The same guy? Peep it ...

Alex Rodriguez can't get close enough to his favorite human being.

Not sure what this so-called damned Yankee is confessing to now - taking steroids, sucking in the playoffs, dating manly strippers? - but do have to give the magazine credit for the "How Jesus Can Save Your Career" headline on the cover below.

Madonna allegedly dumped the Rod for model Jesus Luz. The irony.

British actress Natasha Richardson is in critical condition at a Montreal hospital after being injured in a serious skiing accident yesterday.

A member of the Redgrave acting dynasty and the wife of actor Liam Neeson, Richardson reportedly suffered head trauma during a fall.

Calls to Richardson's agent were referred to Neeson's publicist, who didn't have info because he is unable to get in touch with his client.

Initial reports said Natasha Richardson suffered severe head trauma.

Later, it was learned Richardson initially walked away from her fall on the beginner's slope only to have fallen ill with a headache about an hour later. She reportedly was conscious upon leaving for the hospital.

The 45-year-old Natasha Richardson was transferred to Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal at about 5 p.m. after initially being taken to Centre Hospitalier Laurentien, which is close to the tony Mont Tremblant ski resort in Quebec.

As of this afternoon, Richardson is believed to have been transported from the hospital in Canada via ambulance. CTV says she boarded a private jet - we do not know where the jet has gone, but we believe it's New York City.

Richardson is sedated and suffering from brain swelling, but is not brain dead, according to TMZ. She was accompanied by a medic team for the flight.

Neeson and Richardson, who have been married since 1994, have two sons together, Micheal Richard Antonio, 13, and Daniel Jack, 12.

We wish her a fast, full recovery.

Amy Winehouse has entered a plea of not guilty to charges of assaulting a fan last September. The singer, wearing her signature beehive, showed up slightly late.

Obviously. Luckily, her lawyer, Mark Haslam, was there to apologize.

He told the court she had left her north London home more than two hours earlier but had been "delayed." That's what they're calling snorting lines now?

When the Grammy winner arrived at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court, she gave her name as Amy Jade Civil - despite reports of her impending divorce from estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil. She was released on bail.

Amy Arrives in Court

Amy Winehouse arrives for court. She's due back again July 23.

The charge stems from a September 26 incident when Winehouse allegedly hit dancer Sherene Flash in the face after she asked to take a picture with Amy.

Last week, Winehouse canceled her appearance at the Coachella festival in April due to her legal problems, which would make it difficult for Amy to obtain a U.S. visa. Her rep confirmed the cancellation was due to "current legal issues."

The City star Whitney Port has split from her Australian musician boyfriend Jay Lyon, Us Weekly has confirmed. This also pretty much took place on the show.

The couple, who we saw meet on The Hills, then continued their relationship in New York on The City, decided to part ways after less than a year together.

The City creator and executive producer Adam DiVello said, “Whitney and Jay are broken up as of The City season finale. There were a few factors in their relationship that led to their split and fans saw those play out on-air."

"As we pick up where we left off when The City returns later this year, viewers will see what unfolds as we continue to follow Whitney Port and her story."

The City: Jay and Whitney

Whitney was in Vegas to celebrate her sister Ashley’s bachelorette party on Friday, and said having a relationship in front of a TV crew has been hard for her.

“It’s really difficult. Put yourself in this position. It’s hard to have an intimate relationship no matter what, whether there are cameras there or not, so it’s not the most natural thing," she said. "It kind of speeds the relationship up, and it also takes a lot of the spontaneity out of it. It's very challenging to say the least.”

While we're sad for Whitney, we think she can totally do better, as Jay Lyon was acting like more and more of an asshat in the previous couple of episodes.

Following her "alleged" beatdown at the hands of boyfriend Chris Brown, who she has since reconciled with, Rihanna is eager to move on with her life, a source close to the singer says, and she's not shying away from the public anymore.

"She's out and about now," the source reports, saying the singer is looking to put the events of February 8 behind her. "She's not hiding at this point. She's trying to get her life back in order. She's trying to figure it all out. It's going to be hard."

Rihanna has been quietly stepping out on both coasts recently.

On Saturday, she headed to dinner in New York at Da Silvano in the West Village with three people. Over pasta, she "was relaxed," according to a fellow diner.

"She looked fantastic, like a superstar. She did look rather serious." She may be stepping out, but she hasn't been seen with Brown in public since the attack.

On the Ri-bound

While in the Big Apple, Rihanna also went to the Spotted Pig on Friday night.

Accompanied by Brandy, the R&B star met up inside with Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

Last week, the singer hit the town in Los Angeles, where she celebrated her belated birthday with girlfriends. The following night, she headed to the Geisha House with some friends, and "was in very good spirits" during the night.

We will see if she can truly move on. She may still have to testify against Chris Brown, though both his lawyer and hers are trying to get her off the hook.

Amid speculation that Lindsay Lohan's life is spiraling out of control – yet again - the troubled star can at least point to one reliable star in her korner:

Kim Kardashian.

Kardashian's koncern follows a weekend for Lohan in which she was issued an arrest warrant (later thrown out) and saw the arrival of the police at girlfriend Samantha Ronson's home Saturday after a epic fight led to a broken window.

"It's so sad that there's such an invasion of privacy, with camera people, cops and paparazzi outside their home," Kardashian said in an interview.

"I mean, when have you not thrown something when you're mad? Everyone has to admit that at one time in their life, they've gotten so mad that they've thrown something, but maybe not necessarily breaking a window."

"Can't people have an argument without everyone watching?"

Boo-tay

This Lindsay Lohan photo has nothing at all to do with Kim Kardashian, or this article. Sorry for the confusion. But you've got to admit, it's pretty stellar.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also scoffs at buzz that Lohan, who has had previous stints in rehab, is presently spiraling out of control.

"Just because she had an argument, I don't think it means she's off track and that everything is crazy. It's really just messed up that everyone blames her."

The Kim Kardashian mantra for koping with the scrutiny?

"Focus on living your life and not the watchful eye everyone has on her. I think everyone needs to let her breathe. [Lindsay]'s got an amazing mom, a beautiful sister and brothers, so just stay close to your family anytime."

NOTE: This may apply better to people with sane families.
