Michael Phelps received national acclaim for smoking the competition - to the tune of eight gold medals - at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The swimmer has been dropped as a spokesman by a major brand, however, for smoking marijuana.

A few days after Phelps apologized for being caught with a bong at college party, Kellogg has fired the Olympian as a pitchman.

"We originally built the relationship with Michael, as well as the other Olympic athletes, to support our association with the U.S. Olympic team," a rep for the cereal maker said yesterday, adding that the swimmer's recent behavior is "not consistent with the image of Kellogg."

We hope Caroline Pal hasn't been dating Michael Phelps for the free cereal.

Meanwhile, USA Swimming, the sport's governing body, has suspended Phelps from competition for three months.

"This is not a situation where any anti-doping rule was violated, but we decided to send a strong message to Michael because he disappointed so many people, particularly the hundreds of thousands of USA Swimming member kids who look up to him as a role model and a hero," the federation said in a statement.

Did Michael Phelps deserve these punishments? You tell us!

If there's one thing that makes her stand out (besides hits "Poker Face" and "Just Dance") pop/techno singer Lady GaGa is known for her outrageous outfits.

This one below, however, may be a tad much even by her standards.

Seen here performing live at the Koko Club in Camden Town, London, Lady GaGa is rocking what can only be described as... honestly, we don't even know.

She looks a little bit like Britney Spears, circa 2000. And you could do worse as an up-and-comer on the music scene. Does it work, though? Tell us below:

But the aspiring naked model won't give up!

Remember when Audrina Patridge nude photos were released? With the goal of capturing Playboy's attention for a future pictorial?

Shrider has followed this quasi-naked lead, posing for a series of pics meant to prove to the men's magazine that she is masturbatory material. It may take more than this, however:

Here's a lesson in relationships, at least according to the New York Daily News: Dating either Paris Hilton or Benji Madden will make you head for The Hills.

Literally.

Recent exes Paris Hilton and Benji Madden are both moving on with new partners, both of whom appear on the MTV quasi-reality show. Ready for this?

Sources say Benji Madden has upped his friendship with Audrina Patridge to "relationship" status in the last two weeks, though Audzo's rep denies that.

Benji and Audrina have been friends for some time - she was dating his BFF Tal Cooperman for awhile - so there may not be anything to report there.

Paris, meanwhile, is supposedly getting her freak on with Lauren Conrad's and Amanda Bynes' sloppy thirds. Yes, we mean the great Doug Reinhardt.

Man, that guy gets around like... Brody Jenner.

What do you think? Are either of these two characters from The Hills actually dating the Hollywood mainstays - and former couple - they've been linked to recently?

For a time, it looked as though Stephanie Hogan was destined to take Jason Mesnick on a "hometown date" as one of the final four women on The Bachelor.

But the 34-year-old single mom from Huntsville, Ala., was surprisingly sent home on Monday's episode, exiting in a classy, mature (and thus unfamiliar) fashion.

In a conference call with celebrity news media, Stephanie talked about her connection - or lack thereof - with Jason and her impressions of The Bachelor.

Throughout her time on the show, and especially after that date to Legoland in which her daughter Sophia made a surprise appearance, Stephanie Hogan spoke of the very special connection she and Jason Mesnick were developing.

However, after this past episode's Rose Ceremony, Stephanie Hogan conceded that she never saw that spark in his eyes whenever he looked at her.

In her interview, she explained this apparent contradiction, saying that their connection was more a strong friendship than anything romantic.

He didn't fill her with overwhelming passion when he walked into the room, Stephanie said, and she didn't think she did that for him either.

Positing his daughter in front of her mother's grave, and inviting a cameraman along for the ride, isn't enough for Larry Birkhead.

The father of Anna Nicole Smith's two-year-old daughter, Dannielynn, sat down for an interview with E! earlier this week. In the clip below, Birkhead gushes about the tyke he's likely making money off of via exclusives such as this.

"When I see Dannielynn and she is just a spitting image of her mother, that's a little bit...I don't want to say eerie, but it is a little odd - and it is kind of comforting as well."

We don't want to be morbid, but is it really a good idea to parade an infant in front of the camera? Especially when that infant's mother fell into a life of drugs and alcohol, rumored to brought on by her exposure to fame and fortune at a young age?

Click on the following pics of Dannielynn, meanwhile, to see if you really can spot her resemblance to Anna Nicole:

Supermodel Marisa Miller graces the cover of March's issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, and - here's a huge surprise - she looks amazing as ever.

But instead of merely posing for another bunch of bikini pictures that make her famous, this time she's showing us just how she looks so good:

Okay, so few are blessed with looks like her.

Otherwise, we would not be talking about her right now (and posting all the Marisa Miller pictures we can find). But her exercises probably do help her stay in shape.

Despite being renewed early for a second season, Whitney Port and her new reality TV series, The City, are a bit hard up for ratings this winter.

Count Jason Wahler among those not watching - and surprised about MTV's early commitment to a sophomore campaign for The Hills spinoff.

He's not sugar-coating his feelings, either.

"I can't believe it got picked up for a second season," Jason Wahler said of The City.

"I thought it was kind of a terrible show. I mean, I like Whitney, but they are trying to drag her show out way too much. I didn't know that many people who were watching [The City] to begin with, so for it to be renewed is shocking."

Ohhh, snap!

Jason Wahler and fiancee Katja Decker-Sadowski.

Incidentally, Wahler's comments were made at last night's premiere of Jordan Eubanks and Brian Drolet's 2 Dudes and a Dream. Jordan and Brian used to date Heidi Montag and Audrina Patridge, respectively. Reality TV losers of a feather ...

Not surprising: Wahler - who dated Lauren Conrad on both Laguna Beach and The Hills - is currently developing a new reality show of his own. We're sure this television event will be a huge ratings hit and critically lauded, as well.

Quite surprising: It will follow his life with Katja Decker-Sadowski, a USC tennis player who hasn't dumped his ass in nearly two years of dating! Talk about incredible.

Compared to season eight contestants such as Lil Rounds and Danny Gokey, aspiring singer Joanna Pacitti has scarcely been seen so far on American Idol.

But early spoilers indicate this crooner reaches the round of 36, which may create quite a stir across the Internet.

As previously reported, Pacitti has already enjoyed a career in the spotlight: she starred in a production of Annie, appeared on an MTV series and released an album under A&M Records.

To critics, this ought to disqualify Pacitti from the competition. With that in mind, we can't wait to see how they react to the following news!

The View weighed in this morning on the brewing, hilarious feud between Ashley Judd and Sarah Palin.

After showing their audience the video of Judd calling out Palin for her pro-wolf killing initiatives, the ladies discussed whether or not the actress had a legitimate beef with the former Vice Presidential candidate.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck seemed sympathetic to the cause at first... only to then question how Judd can take issue with the slaughter of wolves, considering how the pro-choice star is clearly fine with the killing of over 200,000 babies each year via abortion.

This might seem like a non-sequitor to some; but Hasselbeck apparently believes that anyone on the side of Roe vs. Wade can't possibly care about the sanctity of any life.

Watch the clip below:

On Monday, Hasselbeck said Michael Phelps' marijuna use left open the issue of whether or not he also used steroids. She's had quite the week.
