American Idol viewers haven't seen Ellen DeGeneres on TV yet. But Simon Cowell may have already had enough of her!

The comedian started taping the Hollywood rounds of the show last week and will debut on Fox on February 9. How is she getting along with the most important panelist of all?

“Their relationship started poorly, but now the situation has escalated,” a source told

  • Ellen as a Judge
  • Simon Photograph

The tension stems from Ellen's very first day on set, as reports indicate Simon showed up an hour and a half and DeGeneres was "greatly annoyed" by such tardiness.

“There’s two camps on the show this season,” said a show insider. “It’s a lot more tense than previous seasons. It seems as if Ellen has decided to try to take control since Simon is on his way out and that’s created problems.”

Sounds like it will create great television, as well. Are you excited for Ellen to debut? Do you wanna see Katy Perry take over for Cowell next season?

You can also check out the leaked names of rumored season nine semifinalists. The next American Idol will likely come from this group.

This is great stuff.

A day after Jay Leno threw himself a pity party on Oprah and referred to Jimmy Kimmel's appearance on his show as a "sucker punch," the ABC host has fired back - hilariously and accurately.

It all started when Kimmel impersonated Leno on an edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live a few weeks ago. Someone at NBC then made the ludicrous decision to invite Kimmel on to The Jay Leno Show, somehow not expecting him to mock Leno for his role in the network's late-night debacle.

As Kimmel explained in his sharp monologue last night, he expected this to be an actual comedic showdown, not some lame interview in which Leno offered no witty retorts. We'll let Jimmy take it from here...

"The mistake I made was thinking Jay would have anything other to say than what was written on the cue cards. I figured he'd get into it and mix it up. You know, at one time he was a comedian. But he just stood there, kind-of reading through the questions like a robot and then goes off and rats me out to Oprah.

"That's a sucker punch right there, he's a tattle tale.

"Oprah and I had a wonderful relationship and now it's ruined because of Jay. And by the way, watch out Oprah, don't think he won't take your show next."

Amen, in every possibly way, Jimmy. One of the most glaring results in this mess is the contrast in humor between Leno and his counterparts, Kimmel and David Letterman.

Think about Leno's funniest bits: Headlines, Jaywalking and 10@10, the segment on which Kimmel tore him apart. None of them involve actual wit or creativity on Leno's part. Literally anyone could do his job, but most people would do it with more class and professionalism.

Yes, this is actually a real story. Yes, this is a slow news day.

A source tells Us that Jessica Simpson was in a business meeting for her denim line in late January when she decided to lighten the mood by breaking wind.

According to this well-placed insider, "While one of the executives was speaking in a room full of five people, Jessica let out a very loud fart.

"Her mother [Tina] was there, and it prompted her to turn around and yell, 'Jessica!' The tension was extreme. No one knew what to say."

We're shocked by this. Jessica Simpson was in a business meeting?


Lay off the spicy food, Jessica. [Photo:]

Amazing that this is really all that Jessica Simpson now makes news for: cutting ass in meetings, getting dumped for being too needy and posting Twitter pics like this.

Remember when she had an actual career? Yeah, neither do we.

After an investigation of more than seven months, the Los Angeles County D.A. is ready to charge Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson.

Look for charges to be filed as early as next week.

Members of the D.A.'s office, including the Los Angeles County District Attorney himself, Steve Cooley, have already met about filing a criminal case.

While members of the LAPD still have not met with the D.A. to present the case, the deputy D.A. assigned to the Michael Jackson investigation, David Walgren, has been working closely with LAPD detectives on the case, is familiar with the details.

He has already briefed Cooley and others in the office.

Dr. Murray Pic

It appears Dr. Conrad Murray will stand trial and soon.

Dr. Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson's personal physician at the time of his June 25 death, believed to have been caused by the anesthetic Propofol.

He disappeared, or at least kept an extremely low profile, for several months, only to return to work lately because dude was behind on child support.

He's already lawyered up in anticipation of the charges to come.

The most likely of those charges? Involuntary manslaughter. Murder is a hard sell, as he surely didn't mean to take the life of the King of Pop that day.

Many believe his negligence and/or shady medical practices played a role in MJ's death, however, and that's enough to warrant serious charges.

Michael Lohan has more legal troubles than ... well, Lindsay Lohan! Seriously, dude violates restraining orders like it's his job. Which is... who the heck knows.

The absurdity? To violate a restraining order, someone has to first obtain one against you. Then you have to shun it so obviously that they call the cops again.

Such is life for Michael Lohan, who's making this an old habit at this point. M-Lo was arrested again after another incident involving his ex girlfriend Erin Muller.

Once again, the phone was his undoing.

Michael Lohan poses for a familiar photographer.

According to Erin's attorney Bryan Konoski, Lindsay's father allegedly called Erin at work on January 21, a violation of Erin's restraining order against him.

Nassau County (N.Y.) police say Michael, who is dating Kate Major now for some reason, was arrested Thursday night and booked for criminal contempt.

This isn't an old story - he was arrested in December for the same thing. He was also accused of booting Erin in the vagina, which is seriously uncool.

The dirtbag is due in court on February 25.

Twilight Saga fans are in for a major shock this spring: Robert Pattinson will appear on the big screen in a very un-Edward-like role.

As Tyler in Remember Me, Pattinson fights with his (human) father, deals with a tragedy and falls for a blonde.

The actor spoke about the role in a new interview, explaining what drew him to the character:

“I remember reading the script and thinking that I like the flow of the dialogue. It was just different and in a lot of ways, other lead male characters in other films seem like just a vessel: naive and ridiculously innocent, so audiences could feel along with him. But Tyler didn’t feel like that."

While this drastic change to Robert's on-screen persona might be jarring, have no fear: the guy is still smokin hot. As proof, we present a pair of recently-leaked outtakes from a photo shoot with Entertainment Weekly:

Because it's always more fun to look at Pattinson than merely read his quotes, check out the aforementioned interview below.

Vienna Girardi is the least-liked girl in The Bachelor house. That's an understatement akin to stating that Kim Kardashian is famous for no reason.

But 30-year-old single mom Ella Nolan, one of four women Jake Pavelka dumped on Monday's episode, says maybe Vienna isn't all bad. Maybe.

"The show is ultimately his decision," Ella, a Tennessee hair stylist, said Thursday.

"What he sees in Vienna, none of the rest of us were there on their date when they were alone. She's different when she's with him than she was in the house. I can see him just not taking the girls word for it when he is not seeing it on his own."

  • Ella Nolan
  • Jake and V

Ell Nolan says she never viewed Vienna Girardi or any of the other women as competition for Jake Pavelka. That's very mature. No wonder she got kicked off.

"I didn't get catty or jealous of any of the other women," she says. "I didn't really see that there was that much drama because I tried to stay out of it."

Vienna Girardi, a 25-year-old Orlando native, "is one of the women that if she thinks or feels a certain way, she comes out and says it," adds Ella.

"I think it kind of rubbed some of the women the wrong way in the house, but then she would always apologize for it later. In the end I liked her."

If she had to pick, Ella says she would choose Tenley Molzahn for Jake Pavelka, but thinks Gia and Ali also formed strong connections with him.

Notice she's not advocating a Vienna-Jake romance despite being polite. No word on whether V was really dating someone else while on the show.

For the second year in a row, Bar Refaeli has gone on a Rampage.

The Israel super, duper model posed for this clothing line in 2009 and has made men around the world ecstatic by doing so again.

Great Bar

Often overlooked when it comes to the most desirable woman on the planet, the 24-year-old is making a push to be included in that discussion. Don't believe us? Maybe you will now...

Said Refaeli of the fashion and of the shoot:

“Rampage’s spring collection is amazing. The flirty dresses, fabulous swimwear and great shorts are perfect for warm weather, parties and weekends. I can’t wait to wear all of the new styles!”

The ads were shot by photographer Gilles Bensimon. If that names sound familiar, that's because it should: Gilles is the ex-husband of Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon. He also took the nude photos of her that will soon appear in Playboy.

Hopefully, he convinced Refaeli to follow in his former wife's naked footsteps at some point in the future. For now, let's just appreciate Bar in the semi-buff:

Warner Brothers was apparently far from pleased that Simon Monjack matter-of-factly accused them of killing his late wife, Brittany Murphy. Who'd have guessed.

The studio hit back at Con-jack's extraordinarily ridiculous claim that the studio's decision to fire Brittany Murphy directly resulted in her death December 20.

For one, a legal link between her death, however upsetting, and being fired from a movie set is pretty absurd. More importantly, they say she was never hired.

Kinda makes it hard to get fired, right?

"Any claim that Warner Bros. Pictures was somehow responsible for Brittany Murphy's tragic death is demonstrably false, reprehensible and defamatory," they said.

"Despite press reports to the contrary, Warner Bros. and Ms. Murphy never entered into any deal for Happy Feet 2, and thus, there was no contract to cancel."

Simon Monjack wed Brittany Murphy in 2007.

While clearly upset about his wife's death and deserving of some leeway, Simon Monjack is not making it easy for himself to be seen as a sympathetic figure.

His history of seedy behavior aside, he has gone almost overboard with the PR since Murphy died, ostensibly to defend her, but also to cast blame on others.

Who knows what the sleaze has up his sleeve next.
