For the record, we adore Holly Madison.

She's attractive, fun, hard-working.

On The Girls Next Door, Madison even proved to be more than an empty, often-naked body. The series often focused on her efforts to learn the editorial trade.

Still, we're a bit taken aback by the news that Madison is likely replacing an injured Jewel on the new season of Dancing with the Stars.

While the show has never shied away from contestants that have posed in Playboy - from Kim Kardashian to Denise Richards - at least the average viewer was likely unaware of these dancers' nude pasts.

But Madison's affiliation with Hugh Hefner and his magazine is the ONLY thing this beauty is known for. How will the series even introduce her? Say hello to former Playboy model and number-one girlfriend of a man old enough to be her grandfather... Holly Madison!

For a show whose audience is largely comprised of children, does this strike anyone as misguided? Let us know!

Should Holly Madison be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars?

Monique Coleman will not be starring in High School Musical 4.

But we do know where this actress can next be found: on Fox.

According to various Bones spoilers, the 28-year old will appear on that show's March 19 episode.

Look for Coleman to star as Becca, one of several high school students that is questioned by the series' main characters after a friend shows up dead. What makes Becca and her pals so unique?

They have agreed to a pregnancy pact, as evidenced by the shot of Coleman, above, on set. That's just wrong.

Last night's American Idol results show was full of more action that Paris Hilton's hotel room on Saturday nights.

First, Ryan Seacrest announced the three singers that were voted by fans into the finals. None were a surprise:

Click on the pics above to say hello to the latest trio of American Idol finalists.

From there, the host explained this season's Wild Card round: the judges agreed on eight singers that deserved a second chance to audition. From that group - which will perform tonight - the final trio of finalists will be selected by viewers.

Here's who will receive another shot at the next round:

  • Von Smith
  • Anoop Desai (Click on pic below to enlarge)
  • Jesse Langseth
  • Jasmine Murray (Click on pic below to enlarge)
  • Matt Giraud (Click on pic below to enlarge)
  • Ricky Braddy
  • Megan Joy Corkrey
  • Tatiana del Toro

Our take: del Toro? Really?!? Is there any reason for her to be included in the Wild Card selections, aside from producers wanting to create more drama?

The Bachelor has been taken to task all week for its controversial, possibly-staged finale. But it's about time someone called out American Idol for clearly aiming to elicit more tears and pleadings from Tatiana in order to boost ratings.

The Bachelor may be over, but judging by the number of comments on this site and many others devoted to the controversial ending of the 13th season, viewers can't comprehend what they just saw - and still have many questions.

The Seattle Times talked to Jason Mesnick and new girlfriend Molly Malaney in the aftermath of the "shocking" and "intimate" finales. Here's what they said:

Q: Can we start from the beginning? Last time I talked to you in early December, you were engaged to Melissa. Did you ever expect to change your mind?

Jason Mesnick: I would never have proposed if I thought I was going to change my mind. If I had a few more months things would have been different. With the time constraints on the show, at the time I thought I was making the right decision.

Q: You spent the holidays with Melissa in L.A. Was Molly on your mind that whole time?

Jason Mesnick: Initially, I tried to ignore it. Any time I would think about Molly I would be like, "Forget it." I made a decision, I'm going to get married to Melissa. But every day, I just remember thinking, okay, first of all I feel really bad what I did to Molly. And then slowly, I would say, week after week it started building more and more. It was like, now I just don't feel bad, there's a piece of me that's still gone.

Q: Did you fall out of love with Melissa Rycroft?

Jason Mesnick: Melissa is that person I thought going into it I would end up with. I guess in a way she's similar to a lot of other girls I've dated in my life, which is part of the reason why I ended up picking her. It was just something I thought I wanted when realistically, there's probably a reason why my past relationships haven't worked out. What I really needed was somebody different and it was Molly.

Q: The decision to do it on television has been what everyone has been talking about. Did you actually tell Melissa beforehand?

Chris Brown is scheduled to be arraigned today, and some say even if Rihanna refuses to cooperate with prosecutors, the D.A.'s case may have evidence even more powerful against him than the gruesome photo going around.

Multiple law enforcement sources say that the night of the attack, Rihanna told cops she was the victim of escalating violence - and the perp was Brown.

LAPD cops interviewed Rihanna after the attack and she told them Brown had attached her in the past and that the attacks were getting "more violent."

Basically, it was not the first time, and it was worsening.

The interview is potent evidence if the L.A. County D.A. charges Chris Brown with felony domestic battery, and that could happen as early as today.

Whipped Chris Brown

These two are somehow back together again.

And there's a scary, secondary factor: The photo TMZ obtained showing the face of Rihanna battered, bloody and bruised is mild compared to other photos.

Additional pictures were taken on February 9, the day after the attack, and they are even more gruesome - the bruises and swelling far more pronounced.

These photos show injuries that could be devastating in a case against Brown, who was arrested for allegedly making criminal threats. Sources say the D.A. will review that allegation as well as felony domestic battery.

Brown is scheduled to make an appearance in court today. It will be interesting to see if the D.A. files charges tomorrow and if Brown is arraigned. If so, it will be especially interesting if Rihanna shows up with him.

The police photo of battered Rihanna appears after the jump:

Britney Spears is back with a vengeance.

Kicking off her big Circus tour Tuesday night in New Orleans, La., she donned provocative outfits and kept fans riveted during her 16-song, 90-minute set.

Check out her performing the title track to her new album below:

It's safe to say, from the crowd reactions in this clip as well as the reviews that we've read so far, that while this did not represent a watershed moment in the history of music, Britney sure can put on a show.

We call them strong
Those who can face this world alone
Who seem to get by on their own
Those who will never take the fall.

We call them weak
Who are unable to resist
The slightest chance love might exist
And for that forsake it all.

-- Garth Brooks, "Standing Outside the Fire"

Lindzi Cox on Bachelor Season Finale

Was The Bachelor finale staged?

Did Jason Mesnick always plan on choosing Molly Malaney as his wife, only to be told by ABC producers that maximum drama would be achieved if he first handed Melissa Rycroft the final rose, only to dump her on national TV for Molly?

We don't know. We'll likely never know.

But we do know this: Molly Malaney is a brave soul, one that followed her heart and is now waking up every morning next to the man she loves. How many people out there would give anything to say the same thing about themselves?

Our site has received record traffic and a record-number of comments following this week's roller coaster week of reality TV.

We appreciate it. We sincerely thank everyone that has taken the time to read the latest news on The Bachelor and share his/her opinion on such a stunning turn of events. Keep the responses coming!

Sometimes, though, members of our staff also feel the need to speak out. This is one of those times.

Seriously, does Dancing with the Stars purposely seek out contestants that have posed in Playboy?!?

Following the news that Jewel might miss the new season of the show due to tendinitis in her knee, Us Weekly is reporting that the competition has found a replacement: Holly Madison.

J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff Picture

The singer, who has been the crown (pun alert!) jewel of ABC's advertising campaign so far - due to her and husband Ty Murray both competing on season eight - released a statement this week saying she'd suffered a "minor setback," but added: "Don't count me out, as I am in this for the long run."

If Madison does replace Jewel on next week's premiere, she will:

  • Be paired with Dmitry Chaplin;
  • Become the latest contestant with a Playboy past, following in the nude footsteps of Brooke Burke, Kim Kardashian, Lisa Rinna, Denise Richards and Belinda Carlisle. Sheesh!

Following their heartwarming reconciliation in Miami last weekend, Rihanna is now reportedly refusing to press charges and/or testify against boyfriend Chris Brown.

He was arrested for "allegedly" assaulting her February 8.

Thunderbird

The Los Angeles District Attorney and investigators have been working overtime to try to build a case against the singer, but no charges have been brought forth against Brown, who is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow (March 5).

Now it looks like their biggest hope is now backing down.

A file on the case, including Rihanna's initial statement to police as well as witness accounts, was to be handed to the L.A. District Attorney this week.

Even without Rihanna's help, California law allows prosecutors to charge him with domestic violence, battery, criminal threats, even attempted murder.

But the question is: do they have evidence to make a felony stick, or is there a chance Brown will be let off the hook or merely slapped on the wrist?

As far as the couple's reunion in Miami on Saturday, it's rumored that Rihanna and Chris Brown did more than just work out their differences.

According to a report by Star magazine, he may have proposed to her.

The celebrity news magazine says that Chris Brown apologized for treating her like a speed bag, begged for forgiveness, and proposed on the spot.

NOTE: The speed bag bit was us, not Star. But have you seen that Rihanna pic?

"All she's ever wanted was to be with him forever," a source said. "Rihanna is looking for the husband-and-two-kids deal before she turns 25."

Mmm hmm. Sure, Star. While all this wedding nonsense is almost certainly BS, there's no doubt they are back together and going strong.

But should they be?

She may be world famous, have millions of dollars to her name and make news for running without a sports bra, but Miley Cyrus has a message for her fans:

She's a real person... just like you!

As the 16-year old's autobiography, "Miles to Go," hits shelves this week, the singer spoke to People Magazine about her motivation for having a ghost writer try to round up sympathy for this teenage icon releasing it.

"Most of the time you see me smiling – I mean that's how I got my name! – but that's not what it's all about. Everyone goes through hardships and heartbreaks," she said.

In the book, Miley touches on:

  • Daily hazing from bullies in sixth grader;
  • Her first love, referred to as "Prince Charming," but known to everyone else as Nick Jonas;
  • Her close-knit family, who Cyrus says was closely involved in the writing of the autobiography.

So, why open up in this way, Miley?

"I want my fans to feel closer to me," she said, leaving out the part about charging them money to do so, just like she did at her 16th birthday party last year.
