The major talk at last night's Country Music Awards centered around the utter domination of Taylor Swift, who took home four trophies.

From thee, people talked about how beautiful host Carrie Underwood looked.

Eventually, though, conversation turned to Kellie Pickler and the fact that the singer debuted a new hair color at the ceremony.

"The hair doesn’t make the person, but it has been a shocker," Pickler told People. "It's been interesting with red hair because you can’t wear the same things. It’s an excuse to go shopping!"

We think Pickler looks pretty. Do you agree? Compare the colors below and then vote...

Oprah Winfrey has former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in the hot seat on Monday, and those hoping for a repeat of Carrie Prejean on Larry King will be disappointed. 

She's still talking about her teenage nemesis, her grandson's father, Levi Johnston, but unlike other recent interviews, Palin refused to get combative this time.

According to excerpts released today, Palin is asked if Johnston will be invited to their Thanksgiving dinner. "You know, that's a great question," Palin replies.

"It's lovely to think that he would ever even consider such a thing. Because, of course, you want - he is a part of the family and you want to bring him back into the fold and kind of under your wing. And he needs that, too, Oprah."

"I think [Levi Johnston] needs to know that he is always loved and that he has the most beautiful child and this can all work out for the best. It really can."

Sarah Palin ran for V.P. in 2008, but entertained even more in 2009.

Of Johnston's claims that she called her own baby retarded, Palin wisely says: "We don't have to keep going down this road of controversy all the time. We're not really into the drama. We have more important things to concentrate on."

Palin also did not seem enthusiastic about rehashing her notoriously awkward interview with Katie Couric during her bid for the Vice Presidency last fall.

She tells Winfrey she didn't think the sit-down wasn't a seminal, defining moment for her. "And neither did the campaign," she added. "The campaign said, 'This is what America needs to see and it was a good interview.'"

"And, of course, I'm thinking, 'If you thought that was a good interview, I don't know what a bad interview is,' because I knew it was a bad interview."

Fortunately, Oprah didn't ask about Levi's upcoming nude Playgirl spread. Now that would have really been a bad interview ... albeit entertaining.

Do you like Sarah Palin?

Brooke Hundley, the former ESPN employee whose affair with Steve Phillips got them both fired last month, gave an interview today to Good Morning America.

Despite the fact that she was complicit in the affair and her own bizarre actions exposed it, Brooke Hundley believes she's also a victim in all of this, saying:

"I think people are so quick to make a judgment, it's almost like 'here's a great story. Here's a great chance for me to ... destroy this person' without any sense of really thinking about the fact that there's a human being behind those words."

"I've been called things that no woman should ever be called. I've been called the c-word. I've been called a whore. I've been called a home wrecker."

Boo freaking hoo, Brooke.

Maybe you shouldn't have shown up at Phillips' home in person, left a note bragging to his wife about your affair with him, driven over his lawn or backed into a stone wall (cementing her home wrecker status in more ways than one)!

Don't get us wrong. Steve Phillips is an idiot for risking his career and his family over an affair with a crazy chick half his age, and deserves the consequences.

But to watch Brooke Hundley try to come off as the sympathetic victim in this interview - especially whining about Jay Leno showing pictures of her and poking fun at the fact that she's less hot than Steve's wife Marni - is just laughable.

She claims her "breaking point" is near. Imagine how Phillips' teenage son, who she cyber-stalked, and Marni Phillips, who was flat out petrified of Brooke, felt.

Of Marni Phillips' 911 call, Hundley said "the same fear I heard in her voice was similar to how I had felt." Except that she subjected Marni to it, not vice versa.

Details. Watch Brooke Hundley's interview on GMA after the jump:

When we first heard the news that Tara Reid nude photos were appearing in the January issue of Playboy, one image came to mind:

THIS.

Tara Reid and Michael Axtmann

That wrinkly, plastic surgery-destroyed stomach is gross enough without having to imagine the rest of Reid's bare body.

Unfortunately, we won't need to imagine on December 18, when the actress' naked pictorial hits newsstands.

"Playboy had approached me in the past, but now just seemed like the right time to do it since I'm in a great place in my life and in love," Reid said. "I felt incredibly comfortable at the shoot. I think it helped a lot by choosing a brilliant female photographer."

While the issue's cover does not depict Tara in her birthday suit, the photos inside are as naked as Megan Fox in our nightly fantasies.

Said an insider: “She was a bit insecure about her body when they first started. [But] she looked great and finally got into the groove.”

That's gross. At least to us. Perhaps not to others. Would you wanna get into Reid's groove... if you know what we mean?

It was a case of art imitating life ... or something. More like life imitating The Hills. No way that qualifies as art ... although these portraits are quite stunning.

Okay, we're off topic. Days before The Hills showed Stephanie Pratt confronting Holly Montag about her excessive drinking, Steph was popped for DUI in L.A.

The occasion? Holly's birthday party, natch.

It had all the makings of a real meltdown, considering Stephanie's troubled past. But she says she's weathered the storm and come out stronger after the DUI.

“It was the worst thing to happen to me and, at the same time, it was the biggest blessing,” the sister of Spencer PRatt told People in an interview Wednesday.

“I learned to not fall apart, which is something I usually do when something goes bad in my life. I learned it is all about temptation and I am being tested.”

Being tested in Hollywood is an everyday thing, as is the inevitable fall from grace, but The Hills star is determined to go from embarrassment to betterment.

“This is the first time that I haven’t screwed up more after a bad thing,” Stephanie Pratt says, “and I didn’t fall apart and say, ‘I hate my life, I want to die!’"

"It’s the first time in 23 years that I went the other way!”

We're not sure if that's inspiring or sad.

In any case, things are really turning around for her: “Two weeks ago I found a partner for a handbag line I’ve dreamed about since the 7th grade,” she says.

“I’m closer to my parents and I’ve never been happier in my life! I’ve had problems in my past, but I would let them turn into snowballs that turned into avalanches.

"This is the first time that I’ve ever done anything different.”

Nicole Forrester has a message for Fergie: Sorry!

She also has a message for Josh Duhamel: You suck in bed!

Appearing on Extra this week, the woman that claims she spread her legs for Duhamel in early October apologized to his wife for banging her beau, adding:

"I thought, 'Nobody's gonna find out. It's not gonna hurt anybody...' I'm sorry that I didn't think of it like I think of it now."

While Fergie might be smarting by the rumored betrayal, Forrester says she's suffered from the story, too. Her son allegedly told her: 

"'You're disgusting. I didn't know you had sex with him."

Clearly Nicole's child hasn't seen Duhamel. He's far from disgusting looking!

But he's also less than stellar in bed, Forrester noted. Asked if he was the best she's ever had, the stripper said: "No, I don't think that was it."

We have a feeling Forrester has a lot of experience on which to draw when making that claim.

Ashley Jensen, who is best known for producing funny Accidentally on Purpose quotes on the new CBS comedy, and her actor hubby, Terence Beesley, celebrated the joyous arrival of a beautiful baby boy on October 20, according to People.

The Emmy-nominated Jensen, who previously starred on Ugly Betty and Extras, named the tyke Francis Jonathan Beesle. He's the couple's first child.

Jensen and Beesley had been dating for six years when they tied the knot in California in 2007. The 40-year-old announced her pregnancy this July.

She is on leave from Accidentally on Purpose, which debuted in September to solid ratings, and on which plays a reporter who's going to have a baby.

Of course, this is after she had a one-night stand, rather than an eight-year relationship, so it's not exactly the same, but you have to love the tie-in.

Congratulations to Ashley Jensen and her hubby Terence Beesley!

Richard and Mayumi Heene will plead guilty to orchestrating the Balloon Boy hoax in Larimer County, Colorado court Friday, according to attorney David Lane.

Mayumi Heene will plead guilty to false reporting to police, a Class 3 misdemeanor (the lowest under Colorado law) with a stipulated sentence of probation.

Richard Heene, the "mastermind" behind the pathetic stunt, will also plead guilty to charges of attempting to influence a public servant, a Class 4 felony.

The prosecutor has stipulated to a sentence of probation. The stipulations carry the possibility of up to 90 days in jail for Richard and 60 for Mayumi.

Analysts say the deal makes sense for both sides, given the cost of a trial and that Mayumi, a Japanese citizen, faced deportation if convicted of a felony.

Of course, the judge doesn't have to accept the deal and is allowed to alter the terms. While rare, the level of outrage in the case could prompt it here.


Still no word on whether the Heenes are going to pay any restitution for the costs of the Balloon Boy hoax, but you can be sure that will come up in court.

The two were investigated for reporting their six-year-old son, Falcon Heene, drifted away on a homemade balloon that broke loose from tethers in October.

That set off a frenzy among police, firefighters, National Guard and media as the UFO-shaped balloon hurtled 50 miles across the northern Colorado sky.

The balloon eventually crashed into a field and authorities discovered it empty, sparking fears the boy had fallen out until he was found safe at home.

The Heenes publicly denied any hoax, but as suspicion mounted, Mayumi admitted to an investigator that the balloon was released intentionally and that the couple knew Falcon was hiding in the attic the whole time and wasn't on board.

According to an affidavit she signed, Mayumi Heene said the PR stunt was intended to make the family "more marketable for future media interest" and that the three boys had been instructed to lie to authorities and the media.

That about sums it up. These are pretty much the worst human beings imaginable. You know it's bad when even this guy is hating on you ...

During a stop in London this week, Robert Pattinson discussed the growing global obsession over the Twilight Saga.

Of the reaction he and castmates have received, he said:

"We went to Japan earlier on in the year. There wasn't that much of a reaction - but last week when we went again, it suddenly exploded, the same as here. I don't know how, it just explodes so quickly. It takes seven months to take hold - it's like a virus."

If that's the case, it's the only virus in history millions of people hope to get infected by!

This will especially be the case after they sort through the latest outtakes of the actor, photos released by Vanity Fair that didn't make it into the magazine's initial spread of the star.

Sit back, get comfortable and ogle away, New Moon fans...

Father of the Year candidate Jon Gosselin is firing back at TLC for trying to get an injunction prohibiting him from making any ca$h money from shows not on TLC.

Gosselin wants the contract he initially signed with TLC declared invalid on grounds it's unconscionable, i.e. Jon had no lawyer or manager when he inked the thing.

Basically, he's saying he was railroaded by a corporate giant, calling himself just "an unsophisticated father of eight" who didn't know what he was doing. Please.

He claims the deal was so bad, he and the fam only pulled in $2,000 an episode to start - a mere $200 per person! In turn, he claims TLC violated child labor laws.

Gosselin claims in his $5 million counter-suit that he will be "unable to earn a living as a TV personality, and therefore precluded from supporting his eight children."

Of course, Jonny Boy didn't respond to TLC's claim that he derailed the show with what the network believes is a bogus legal accusation about exploiting his kids.

YOU TALKIN' TA ME? Jon Gosselin is just a regular ol' guy who likes earrings and douchey shades. How was he supposed to know what he was singin'?!

If a judge buys TLC's claim, it could cost Jon a lot of money. TLC wants Jon to cough up any loot he made by selling his life to shows and websites in recent months.

According to sources close to the network, TLC lawyers are watching lots of TV these days, keeping tabs on Jon's appearances and running a tab of sorts on his a$$.

That way they'll know at least roughly the kind of bank he's making, and what to go after when they ask a judge to place the Ed Hardy-wearing tool on gag order.

TLC claims Jon is breaching his contract, which prohibits doing "any media including any online or print... without the Company's or Producer's prior written consent."

We can't even fathom how many times Jon has violated that clause. Unless he can get TLC to back off, or convince a judge that contract is illegitimate, he's toast.
