In terribly tragic Miley Cyrus news, a tour bus transporting the singer's crew members was involved in a deadly crash outside Richmond, Va., earlier today.

Cyrus, 16, was not on board, multiple sources have confirmed, and, according to her website. Miley is set to rock the house Sunday in Greensboro, N.C.

"It was one of our tour buses, but not Miley's,” her manager said in response to the crash. "It was one of our buses that transported our lighting crew."

Miley Cyrus was not personally on board the bus.

An investigation is underway to determine exactly why the Miley Cyrus bus - part of a four vehicle caravan - drifted off the road and overturned, claiming a life.

One person, presumed to be the bus driver, died, while nine other people on board, sustained minor injuries. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.

UPDATE: It is confirmed that the deceased is indeed bus driver Bill Douglas. Miley released a statement on her official site regarding the incident:

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Bill 'Uncle Bill' Douglas. Members of our tour are like members of our family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family in the midst of this tragedy. He will truly be missed."

As we reported last night, Oprah will end her reign as the most successful person ever to host a show on TV in 2011. Today, she made the announcement official.

Just because she's stepping aside doesn't mean she's forgotten about sweeps, of course. She saved her big, breaking, shocking news for the end of the show.

While she called rumors for departure "conjecture," her new cable channel, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), also happens to be launching in 2011. Hmm.

But in revealing the "real" reason she's walking away after 25 years, Oprah started strong, then began to cry, then regained her composure, saying it "feels right."

Also feeling so right? Shameless promotion for her next season. Holla!

Oprah Winfrey says ending her talk show feels good in her bones. An estimated net worth of over $2 billion has to feel pretty good in her bank account, as well.

Fighting back tears, O said, "I love this show. This show has been my life and I love it enough to know when it's time to say goodbye. Twenty-five years feels right in my bones and my spirit. It's the perfect number, the exact right time."

And then there was this line:

"For some long time Oprah viewers, you have literally grown up with me ... we've grown together ... you had your family and your children ... you left a spot for me in your morning or afternoon - depending on when the Oprah show airs in your town."

Wow. What an emotional, corporate farewell.

Okay, maybe our headline above is a little harsh.

Maybe when Sarah Palin confused Iraq with Iran in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity this week, it was just a slip of the tongue and we should back off.

Yet when you're talking about a woman who noted Alaska's close proximity to Russia to bolster her foreign policy credentials, benefit of the doubt is lacking.

Check out her geographical blunder below and see what you think. Maybe she's a visionary and we should crack down on Iraq to prevent a nu-cue-lar Iran.

Whether she's the future of politics or just another random d-lister trying to bolster her own celebrity, Sarah is the gossip world's gift that keeps on givin' ...

Monday marks the end of TLC's Jon and Kate Plus 8. That's the good news. The bad? Jon Gosselin's legal battles and personal drama will continue to play out publicly.

What can fans expect on the final hour of the reality show, which Jon pulled the plug on because the network blatantly ried to fire his ass of concerns for his kids?

The estranged parents of eight will venture on separate outings with the kids. Individually, Jon and Kate Gosselin will reflect on the past and look to the future.

Asleep yet?

Back in September, TLC made the announcement that Jon would no longer appear on the reality series and that the program would be re-titled Kate Plus 8.

That plan was axed after Jon objected to his kids being on TV, saying the network was "hurting them," which amazingly he never brought up prior to that.

THE END OF AN ERROR: Farewell, Jon and Kate Plus 8.

"Kate Plus 8 is not in production," TLC spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg said Thursday. "We are focusing on the launch of Kate's new series in early spring."

No details on what Kate's new series entails, but Jon and TLC remain entangled in a legal battle surrounding the douchebag's actions of the past six months.

TLC has sued him for breach of contract, claiming he violated contract terms by making promotional appearances (paid or unpaid) without TLC's approval.

The network says any interview or dealings with media outlets have to get the green light from TLC first. He's probably violated that, oh, 200 or so times.

He fired back with a $5 million countersuit, alleging the network has damaged his career (LOL) by discouraging other media outlets from working with him.

Clothed and actually sounding somewhat coherent, Tila Tequila attempted to explain her disturbing naked video meltdown that she posted on ustream yesterday.

Tila says she made the video after experiencing flashbacks from her alleged violent altercation with NFL star Shawne Merriman, her then-boyfriend, in September.

She says he assaulted her, but the police didn't press charges. Tila has since sued Merriman, and says amid the pressure, she "just kind of flipped out a little bit."

Ya think?

The best part of her explanation for the video? She says she's no Rihanna, and unlike the popular singer, she feels compelled to talk about the alleged abuse.

Tila Tequila tries to justify her naked video rant.

Never mind that Rihanna did talk about her abuse by Chris Brown - to the cops, who charged him with a felony. She just didn't talk to the press about it.

Rihanna has also now opened up about the incident in graphic detail in extensive interviews. Criticizing her for "not coming forward" is irrelevant and unfair.

Look, we're sorry Tila is so messed up, regardless of what happened with Merriman, and hope she gets help. But don't blame your problems on Rihanna.

Somehow we doubt the "Umbrella" singer made Tila show us a tampon to prove her vaginal cleanliness, masturbate or whip out a gun naked. Just saying.

The folks at Funny or Die have released a Carrie Prejean sex tape parody that will leave you laughing ... or just disturbed. Probably a combination of the two.

First and foremost, it features serious Bush loving ... George W., that is. She won't shave hers until he gets reelected. Hey, you gotta stand up for something.

While there's no fake Carrie Prejean nude action, she's definitely getting into it, moaning to the imagery of something that really does it for her: Fox News.

Then there's a cameo by Perez Hilton, whose question at the Miss USA pageant first put Carrie and her political views on the map. It gets a little weird.

Follow the jump to peep this faux Carrie Prejean sex tape ...

Irina Shabayeva stood before Heidi Klum & Co. Thursday night, waiting to hear if she would be named the winner of Project Runway's much-delayed sixth season.

She was.

Besting Althea Harper and Carol Hannah Whitfield for the title, Irina stayed classy, polished and capable of crafting wearable couture at the NYC extravaganza.

All three were impressive last night, but there could only be one winner.

It seemed like anyone's game, but the panel ultimately decided that Irina Shabayeva, despite her aversion to color in her sporty-glam line, played it the best.

The new Project Runway champion, Irina Shabayeva.

"I can't believe it!" the newest Project Runway winner exclaimed, jumping into consultant Tim Gunn's arms as he walked out to congratulate her at the end.

"I'm definitely proud of myself," she said, giving props to her opponents. "I think this deserves a pat on the back, because I had some stiff competition."

In the end, it was Irina's surprisingly edgy, nearly all-black collection that won her the $100,000, a spread in Marie Claire and a Paris vacation.

What do you think? Should Irina Shabayeva have won?

The Office's Kelly and Erin penned their girl group Subtle Sexuality's first single, "Male Prima Donna," after co-worker Ryan, but it would also apply to Levi Johnston.

He's officially a first-class idiot after being spotted earlier this week at JFK airport, wearing sunglasses and refusing to stand on line with the "regular" passengers.

Among the commoners? Seinfeld star Jason Alexander.

A witness reports: "[Levi] then made a big show of getting on first."

"He was seated in the front row of first class, looking like he was born to be there and waiting for recognition. Jason Alexander was quietly sitting behind him."

Levi Johnston and Kathy Griffin at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.

Levi, who became quasi-famous last year after knocking up Bristol Palin, has parlayed that into ... well, some interviews, a nuts ad and one Playgirl pic.

It's one thing to cash in on your celebrity and do it in a self-deprecating manner. Everybody's got a right to make a living. But letting it go to your head?

Much as this guy continues to entertain us, you gotta wonder how long before he's back in obscurity, toiling away on the Alaskan oil fields for a living.

Kim Kardashian gracing the cover of a random, heretofore unheard of magazine? Not unusual.

Kim Kardashian looking classy and (gasp!) clothed in that publication's pictorial? A sign of the Apocalypse.

But that's exactly what takes place in the December issue of Saturday Night. Just look at the (relatively) modest cover shot:

In her interview, of course, Kim sounds more like Kim. She praises the realism of her show and acts as though her publicist doesn't contact the paparazzi to snap her photos.

A few excerpts:

On Keeping Up with the Kardashians:" Sharing our lives on the show is actually very beneficial. The best feedback was the wedding special. Before, people were saying, “Khloé and Lamar met a month ago now they are getting married. This is crazy and it can’t be real.”

But, after seeing the wedding special you see the whole process of what their life is like together and how they fell in love. If anything, people are now saying they totally get it. It’s just the best way for us to tell our side of the story.

On celebrity gossip photographers: If you happen to shop down Robertson Blvd. then you know they’re going to be everywhere. It happens that I love to go to this nail salon in Beverly Hills where there are always paparazzi. At times it’s frustrating because I just want to get my nails done with no makeup on and in sweats. Times like those you just wish they weren’t around.

On the American Idol stage, Adam Lambert proved that he's calm and cool in the face of pressure.

The singer was forced to demonstrate those same traits this week, after he was called out by Aaron Hicklin, the editor of Out magazine.

From Idol to Superstar

We recommend reading Hicklin's full statement, but in a nutshell: he takes issue with Lambert for trying to control the interview the singer conducted with Out this month.

Hicklin criticizes Lambert for only agreeing to a cover shot if straight people were included on it; for having his publicist dictate terms of the interview; and, generally, for not being gay enough so that "others can follow" Lambert's example.

These are galling critiques for numerous reasons: all celebrities hire publicists to sit with magazines and set an agenda; Out was clearly satisfied with the feature, as it ran the interview; and, as Lambert tells Entertainment Weekly, "not every gay man is the same gay man."

We'll let Adam take it from here. In a well-spoken, articulate discussion with EW, he responded to Hicklin's unfair charges...

On his image: What people don’t realize is, I am managing my image, more than maybe the editor of OUT magazine likes to give anybody credit for. My team is a team... I really mean it. I’m not being puppeted around. I didn’t want to jump onto a gay magazine as my first thing, because I feel like that’s putting myself in a box and limiting myself.

On his message: I’m an entertainer... I can talk about relationships and personal experiences because as an artist those things involve writing lyrics and that part of my process. But I didn’t feel comfortable talking about the March on Washington. I didn’t feel comfortable, so I asked my publicist to ask the interviewer to stay away from the political questions. I take full responsibility for that.

I think that the editor has his agenda and has his opinions, which I respect, but they’re not necessarily my opinions. And I wish there was a little respect for that. Not every gay man is the same gay man... We’re all very very different, just like all straight people are different.

On gay rights: In order for us to progress, we need to stop segregating ourselves. And the letter that Aaron wrote is holding us back. Because it’s recognizing the big difference as opposed to letting us all ignore preference and just be people... in attempt to champion a cause he’s actually taking a big step backwards.

We couldn't have said it better ourselves. We don't think anyone on the planet could have said it better themselves. Rock on, Adam!
