On a hot Southern California night, close friends joined parents, brothers and sisters and three children to say goodbye to the late Michael Jackson.

They came for an intimate funeral ceremony for a star laid to rest.

Lisa Marie Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, Macaulay Culkin, Chris Tucker, Mila Kunis and others arrived at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif., Thursday.

As Jackson’s backup dancers served as ushers, his brothers, wearing black armbands and a sequined glove on one hand, carried his flower-covered casket.

The private, intimate gathering was a stark contrast to the internationally telecast and star-studded memorial service at Los Angeles’ Staples Center July 7.

Jackson’s three children, Paris (with new haircut), Prince and Blanket, placed a crown on their father’s coffin to forever mark his place as the King of Pop.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009).

Michael's brother said that Michael's three children each wrote letters to their father that will lie with him alongside one of his signature white gloves.

After a prayer by Pastor Lucius Smith and a gospel sung by Gladys Knight, Clifton Davis performed the Jackson 5 song he wrote, “Never Can Say Goodbye.”

After the ceremony, the brothers carried the casket to the Grand Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Mortuary, where at 9:43 p.m. MJ entered his final resting place.

Unless you believe Michael Jackson is alive, that is.

Afterwards, his family issued this statement:

"Once again we thank all of Michael Jackson’s fans around the world for their generous outpouring of support during this terribly difficult time. Their expressions of love for Michael and his music have sustained the Jackson Family."

This isn't as desperate as Adrianne Curry Tweeting a topless photo of herself.

Nor is it as lame as Miley Cyrus' constant pleas for attention and pity on Twitter.

Still, we'd have hoped that Kim Kardashian could think of more creative ways to make headlines than to post a lingerie-clad pic of herself on her account. The picture was released on the same day that Kim wrote of a piece of coffee cake:

"I had one bite to satisfy my craving, that was it! Coffee cake was yummy, but a moment on the lips is a life time on the hips!"

Ironic. Kardashian has also proven that a moment on all fours for Ray J is a life time on video.

Joe Francis is standing by his story about his brawl with Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole - and allegedly making sure the key witness is on the same page.

This according to a text from Joe to Abbey obtained by TMZ.

The Hottest Couple Ever?

The text from Francis to Wilson, whose conversation triggered the nightclub melee in which Joe beat up Jayde (says she), was sent August 28 at 1:11 p.m.

The fight happened the previous night. Joe Francis wrote the text to make sure Wilson backs up his story that he didn't assault anyone and Brody's lying:

"Your statement is the truth. That jade [sic] threw a drink on me when I was talking to you and I reached around to tap on her shoulder to see who it was."

"Brody then grabed [sic] my shirt and ripped it partialy [sic] off. I curled up in a ball and covered my face. Joe never touched anyone!!! Most important!!!"

What a sleaze. Not that you would expect anything less.

Abbey Wilson used to date Joe Francis. Her self-esteem must be real high.

Francis' rep responded to the Abbey story as such:

"Abbey Wilson, Joe Francis' ex-girlfriend that he lived with for almost a year, has a little problem telling the whole truth ... Abbey conveniently omitted the last part of that text message which puts everything in context."

"The text reads: 'Also remember jade [sic] hit you the last time, don't lie for them.' Joe would never coach a witness but simply wanted Ms. Wilson to tell the truth about the incident and put aside her vendetta towards Joe."

Said vendetta against Joe Francis is apparently related to him breaking up with her and asking her to move out of his home. But no matter. The rep added:

"Joe is sick of this whole thing and just wishes his ex-girlfriend would just leave him alone, go back to Oklahoma and quit trying to make herself famous."

This "rep" is probably Joe himself. He can never resist getting in the last dig. Which is probably why he ended up getting his ass kicked by Brody Jenner.

Whose side are you on?

What's a typical day like for Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar, plus Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johanna, Jennifer and little Jordyn-Grace?

One thing's for sure: With 18 kids and their 19th child on the way – not to mention their first grandchild coming this fall – there's always something going on with the Duggar family, stars of TLC's hit series 18 Kids and Counting.

Michelle Duggar, 42, shared their schedule in an interview:

  • 7 a.m.: Everyone gets up, gets dressed and washes up for breakfast. Older children help their "buddy" – the younger child they are responsible for.
  • 8 a.m.: Breakfast, followed by a "quick clean" of the house, with everyone scurrying to do their assigned chores, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say.
  • 9 a.m.: School, taught by mom, starts around the dining table. All of the children work at their own level for phonics, math, music and more.
  • 12 p.m.: Lunch. Monthly budget for groceries and household items: $3,000.
  • 1:30 p.m.: The youngest Duggar kids take a nap. This is also what The Hollywood Gossip interns typically do around this time. Lazy asses.

  • 2 p.m.: The older children reconvene for more school. Boo.
  • 4 p.m.: More studies for the older children and free time.
  • 5 p.m.: Dinner, another "quick clean," and more free time.
  • 8 p.m.: Snack time (woo) then group Bible study. The family also goes around the room to talk about what is going on in each child's life.
  • 8:30 p.m.: Bedtimes begin.

Sounds like a nice day. It's a stark contrast with the daily routine of Jon Gosselin, who spends his time traveling the world, boozing at clubs, hitting on mediocre girls and giving contradictory interviews to celebrity gossip magazines.

Mark Wahlberg and new wife Rhea Durham, with whom he already had three kids before tying the knot, are now expecting their fourth child, the actor announced.

Durham, 31, showed off her growing bump during a weekend shopping trip to The Grove in L.A. She and The Departed star married on August 1 in Beverly Hills.

Julie Bowen and Oliver

The two are already parents to Ella, 5, Michael, 3, and Brendan, 11 months.

EXPECTING: Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham are psyched for baby #4.

The actor credits his spouse and their children with helping him shake his former bad boy ways: "We continue to grow in our relationship," Wahlberg says.

"I was not prepared to be married ... at 20 or 30. Committing to making it work and all the things that go into building a foundation is where I'm at now."

"My family travels with me when I work most of the time or I go back and forth on the weekends," he said. "I've been pretty consistent about just making phone calls in the morning and then chasing the kids around in the afternoon."

Congratulations to the happy couple - and family!

It's never been a secret: Kim Kardashian wants a child.

Last month, knocked up sister Kourtney Kardashian said that Kim gets jealous if she doesn't get a certain automobile first; so one can only imagines how it feels to watch her sibling go through a pregnancy!

Kim and a Reporter

But Ray J's former sex tape partner is putting on a happy face, even helping Kourt shop for baby clothes, as seen here:

Wrote Kim on her blog, regarding the shopping spree:

You have to stay neutral when you're shopping for a baby and you don't know what the sex of the baby is! I found that really hard... I just wanted to shop for pink or blue, haha! I want Kourt and Scott to find out already!! I want a baby!!!!

If rumors of a reconciliation with Reggie Bush are true, perhaps Kim will see her child-bearing wishes come true in the near future.

Man. Can you imagine how often she'll blog then?!?

After LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian went public with their relationship in August, her ex, Dean Sheremet, quietly reached out to Cibrian's ex, Brandi Glanville.

Yeah. This looks to have all the makings of a serious Shania Twain / Mutt Lange / Frederic Thiebaud / Marie-Ann Thiebaud love quadrangle situation a-brewin'.

Beautiful Brandi

"They have been supporting each other," an insider says of the pair, who first met on the set of the Lifetime movie Northern Lights, which starred their spouses.

At the time, they didn't know an affair had begun. Now, "They've put the pieces together about the last few months, and they're developing a good friendship."

"They're the ones who understand what the other is feeling."

Translation: It's just a matter of time until Dean hits that.

As LeAnn and Eddie nauseate with PDAs, scorned spouses Dean Sheremet and Brandi Glanville are finding comfort in one another. You know what that leads to.

On Tuesday, Rimes announced that she and Sheremet are divorcing - just days after taking a PDA-packed vacation with Eddie Cibrian to Cabo San Lucas.

Asked how it feels to see his ex with Cibrian, Sheremet fought back tears, saying: "I don't really know what to say. It's bizarre. It's surreal. But I'm OK."

Luckily, Dean has found comfort in comisserating with Brandi Glanville. We can't wait for the paparazzi pictures of them holding hands. Give it a week.

September 13 marks the first full day of NFL action this season.

But while grown men around the country are getting ready for some football, teenage girls will be preparing themselves for some hot Robert Pattinson action!

MTV has announced that it will air a new set of clips for New Moon during that evening's Video Music Awards. This follows a new tradition for the network: at this summer's MTV Movie Awards, fans were treated to the first official trailer for the Twilight sequel.

If you somehow missed it, or just wanna relive the awesomeness, enjoy:

Moreover, we can confirm that Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be on hand to present the video at the event. Might there be another near-kiss between the former pair of co-stars?!?

The ceremony airs at 9 p.m. EST on MTV. We understand if you need to leave your computer for a few moments to go set a DVR recording.

But hurry back!

Remember Maia Campbell? Yeah, we didn't either. But apparently years ago she was in Tyrese’s “Lately” and “Sweet Lady” videos, and starred on LL Cool J’s sitcom In The House. As one of the main characters! She was a solid C-lister!

Maia Campbell was also featured in a regular role as Nicole in the short-lived FOX series South Central, playing Larenz Tate’s girlfriend, and was on Thea.

Then she just disappeared. Well, Maia Campbell is back today. Apparently as a foul-mouthed prostitute who will do anything for drugs. Crack in particular.

For whatever reason, the apparent Maia Campbell crack video surfaced today, even though according to some sources, the footage is not exactly current.

Whenever it was filmed, it certainly does not portray Maia in a very flattering light, as she appears to be under the influence of narcotics such as crack.

She also drops more f-bombs and other foul vocab words that we are forced to post the video after the jump. Do not watch if you are easily offended.

Otherwise, check out the Maia Campbell crack video here ...
