Peter Kowalczyk was jealous of the fact that Leona Lewis won the British TV talent show X Factor while he was turned down, according to The Sun (UK).

Naturally, he acted on that jealousy by waiting five hours to meet Leona Lewis yesterday at her book signing event, then punched her in the face.

A shocked Leona screamed and cried, "Oh my God" as the tall, buck-toothed nut job attacked, catching her on the temple with a fierce right hook.

She clutched her head and burst into tears as she was whisked away from the event (to promote her autobiography Dreams) and escorted to a hospital.

Five security guards jumped Peter Kowalczyk and pinned him to the ground. He was charged with assault before being taken to a psychiatric hospital.

Leona's furious boyfriend, Lou Al-Chamaa, who was with her at the signing, tried to confront the warped fan but was held back by the authorities.

Leona Lewis recoils in horror after having her clock cleaned.

The 2006 X Factor winner, now a global star, was checked for a concussion at London's Harley Street Hospital, but appears to have escaped with bruising.

Kowalczyk had bought a copy of Dreams and seemed to be waiting patiently for Leona Lewis to sign it at Waterstones in Piccadilly like every other fan.

But as those around him in line chatted to each other, he stayed silent and aloof. He said nothing as he reached the front and unleashed his punch.

A spokesman for Leona, whose next single is called HAPPY, said last night:

"It was totally unprovoked. Leona had been patiently signing people's books for a while - this man had been waiting for five hours. Why anyone would hit her I don't know. Leona is shaken and apologises to the fans she was unable to meet."

Waterstones said in a statement: "We would like to thank Leona for her professionalism and we are extremely sad that this event was ruined for her, and her fans, many of whom queued from the early hours of the morning to meet her."

An $2 million blackmail plot allegedly masterminded by Robert Halderman led David Letterman to shock fans with an on-air confession that he had sex with women who work for him, making the Late Show host's personal life a hot topic.

He's known as extremely private, even reclusive, but what little is known about David Letterman's love life has always been both idiosyncratic and messy.

Letterman in Action

A People source says Letterman's affairs, including an alleged liaison with former assistant Stephanie Birkitt, "pre-existed his marriage" to Regina Lasko.

Dave married Regina Lasko last March, and Letterman will be working hard to make sure he makes it to next March as he heads on vacation next week.

Lasko, 48, dated Letterman, 62, for 20 years-plus and is the mother of his 5-year-old son, Harry. She never speaks to press and is rarely photographed.

David Letterman and Regina Lasko got married earlier this year.

She is "wonderfully nice" but "long-suffering because of the length of time Letterman dated her but wouldn't marry her," says a longtime Late Show insider.

"She was crazy about him, so she put up with the situation."

Yet David Letterman was always drawn to other smart, funny women as well, including Holly Hester, but more recently and more significantly, Birkitt.

"Stephanie is sweet, goofy and quirky, which is a major lure for David," says the source, who has discussed both Lasko and Stephanie Birkitt with Letterman. "She's a peculiar character and David is fascinated with peculiar women."

Still, another source close to the TV host says, if forced to make a choice, Letterman will opt to do whatever he can to shore up his marriage.

"The truth is," says the source, "he's 24-7 focused on his wife and son."

Like strawberries and chocolate, or Heidi and Spencer, certain things just go together.

Another case in point: Adam Lambert and the Twilight Saga.

As two of the most beloved things in the pop culture universe these days, it's only fitting for the singer and the film franchise to collide; and they will, on Halloween.

When asked what he was dressing up as, Lambert recently replied: "I love Twilight, I love vampires, I'm a big fan. So I decided to go as a vampire who likes to glam it up."

Sounds like the most ideal pairing since peanut butter met jelly.

A six-year-old Colorado boy was believed to be trapped in a homemade balloon that was turned loose, sparking widespread hysteria earlier Thursday afternoon.

He was given an obligatory nickname - Balloon Boy - by the crazed media, which pounced on the breaking story faster than a Lindsay Lohan on an eight-ball. 

But in the end, it turns out Falcon Heene was never actually on it. Yes, the balloon Balloon Boy was on was completely empty. And yes, that's his real name.

The saga started when a giant silvery balloon floated away from the family's yard this morning, sparking a frantic rescue operation that involved military helicopters and briefly halted some departures from Denver International Airport.

But more than two hours after the balloon gently touched down in a field with no sign of the boy, Sheriff Jim Alderden turned to reporters during a news conference, gave a thumbs up and said 6-year-old Falcon Heene was "at the house."

"Apparently he's been there the whole time," he said.

NON-BALLOON BOY: Falcon Heene after he emerged from the attic.

The boy's father, Richard Heene, said the family was tinkering with the balloon and he scolded Falcon for getting inside a compartment on board the craft.

He said Falcon's brother saw him inside the compartment and that's why they thought he was aboard the balloon when it launched ... if you believe that.

Obviously, we are happy lil' Falcon is safe and sound, first and foremost.

But we can't help but wonder whether the country jumped the gun or if we got straight up punked by elaborate publicity stunt (Falcon’s family were one-time contestants on Wife Swap, which has raised more than a few sets of eyebrows).

Would it surprise you in the least in this Twitter-obsessed age? Just saying.

Anyway, here's a report about Balloon Boy (before he was found, of course):

The former babysitter for the Gosselin family that Jon is also rumored to have nailed is at it again, blabbing to celebrity gossip sites and causing a ruckus.

Today's claim? Jon has a history of hacking into Kate's life. Literally!

Stephanie Santoro tells Radar Online that Jon Gosselin has been snooping into his estranged wife's email, phone and online bank accounts. Well, obviously.

"Jon told me that he pretty much hacked into everything of Kate's that he had access to," Santoro says. "Her online banking, that he had a trace on every single one of her emails so anytime she would get an email he would get a copy of it."

And Stephanie, who said she had sex with Jon nine times while working with the family, says he doesn't even care who knows his snooping tactics.

"Jon threatens everyone that he will sue them if they tell what they know," she claimed, adding that he does not use a lot of discretion. Shocking.

Stephanie Santoro sheds new light on Jon and Kate's public battle over money.

On Tuesday, a judge ordered Jon to pay back $180,000, following Kate's claim a few weeks ago that he had taken $230,000 from their shared account.

Kate claimed he left her with only $1,000 to pay bills and take care of the couple's eight small children. He responded that she, too, was hiding cash.

"He told me that he had enough there that when the ball dropped he would have enough to completely screw her over," Stephanie Santoro said.

Kate Gosselin said in an interview with TMZ that she is "disturbed" by reports that Jon has hacked into her emails and other personal accounts.

Her rep says that the reverse-mulleted one "has heard the allegations made by Stephanie Santoro that Jon Gosselin 'hacked' into her emails, phone, and online accounts, and she is profoundly disturbed by them."

"Under the circumstances, Ms. Gosselin is carefully considering her legal options regarding this, and will pursue them if and when the time is right."

Does Jon Gosselin hack, snoop and monitor Kate's every move? That we cannot say with certainty. Is he a Grade A douchebag? That is 100 percent in the affirmative.

Move over, controversial Meghan McCain Twitter photo.

You don't have the market on unexpected voluptuous Internet bombshells cornered just yet! There's a certain Springfield housewife on your heels!

Last week, we broke the news that Marge Simpson Playboy pics - yes, Marge Simpson Playboy pics - would be gracing the magazine's new issue.

Now, the men's magazine has released excerpts from its exclusive interview with the blue-haired babe. Some sound a lot like The Simpsons quotes.

Here's what Homer's wife has to say about ...

Her family’s reactions to her Playboy pictorial: “Homer said he was intrigued because he had never heard of [Playboy]. The notion of women posing in the buff was completely foreign to him. Wasn’t it sweet of him to lie?"

"Lisa said it was empowering to see a woman in control of her own body. Wasn’t it sweet of her to lie? Bart will never learn about this under any circumstance.”

Marge Simpson Nude

How she knew Homer was the one: “Well, when the doctor said I was pregnant, I heard a voice saying ‘That’s the man you’re going to marry.’"

"The voice was my mother’s.”

Her secret to a successful relationship: “Homer and I have one rule that has worked incredibly well: Never go to bed hungry.”

Advice she gives Lisa regarding men: “I always tell my Lisa she should marry the man who loves her.  It doesn’t matter if he’s losing his hair or is overweight or is at a bar every night ... or if he forgets your birthday and anniversary."

"All that matters is that nothing means anything to him but you.”

Advice she gives Bart regarding women: “I say, ‘You won’t meet any girls in prison, which is where you seem to be headed.’”

What she prides herself on doing around the house: “Searching for copies of [Playboy] and throwing them away…they’re usually in the bedroom.”

As for what Marge Simpson's Playboy photos will look like? Well, if these pictures from The Simpsons are any indication ... um, all natural?

Bravo has confirmed the addition of two more rich, obnoxious, talentless women on The Real Housewives of New York City.

On the upcoming new season of the reality hit, Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert will make frequent appearances. Each is currently listed as a "recurring" character, as opposed to a series regular.

Morgan, who was rumored to take over for Bethenny Frankel, is described by the network as: "A fixture of New York City society, running in social circles that include European royalty and top-notch designers... worked for multiple restaurants across the city as a consultant and manager and often brought in her famous friends to spice up these locales. 

A single mother of a nine-year-old daughter, Morgan loves art, decorating, gardening, skiing and visiting France every chance she gets – be it for her charity work or just for pleasure."

She sounds awesome. We guess.

Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert

As for Gilbert, she's a "busy career woman" who owns a corporate and social event planning company called Save the Date. Yet, she's not too busy to star on a reality show, apparently.

At 29, Gilbert was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young. She has three children.

Filming on the new season is underway. It will premiere in early 2010.

A Connecticut judge agreed to unseal police search warrants related to police raids on the home of Robert Halderman, David Letterman's alleged blackmailer.

Suffice it to say, there were some interesting findings.

NYPD Detectives targeted "computers and loose media, floppy disk, hard disc, cassette tapes, magnetic tapes, removable media, tape and/or data cartridges."

Robert Halderman had some good stuff too.

The Emmy-winning CBS News producer sent the comedian's attorney a package that included a demand letter, the outline for a screenplay exposing Letterman's in-office affair, as well as "personal correspondence, telephone records and photos."

For good measure, Halderman threw in copies of a diary kept by Stephanie Birkitt, his ex-girlfriend and the Late Show employee at the center of the scandal.

THG NOTE: Way to leave your private diary behind when you moved out, Stephanie! Don't girls guard these things with their lives? Especially if there's info in there about cheating on the guy they LIVE WITH? No wonder Halderman lost his $h!t.

Robert Halderman is accused of trying to extort David Letterman.

"In the letter, Halderman states he needs to make a large chunk of money by selling... client #1 a screenplay treatment," reads the search warrant.

It continues: "The documents then describes that client #1's world is about to collapse as information about his private life is disclosed leading to a ruined reputation and severe damage to his career and family life."

The documents state that Letterman's lawyer, James Jackoway, told investigators in the case that Halderman "demanded $2 million to ensure the information in the screenplay treatment and supporting materials would not be made public."

The 48 Hours Mystery man has pleaded innocent to one count of attempted first degree grand larceny, which carries a maximum penalty of 15 years.

He is currently free on $200,000 bail.

Last week, Norwalk, Conn., prosecutor Suzanne Vieux filed a motion objecting to the warrants' release, arguing that disclosing such information could put the witnesses named in the documents under intense media scrutiny.

More importantly, she said it could hurt the case against Robert "Joe" Halderman. THG NOTE: How is the guy's name both Robert and Joe? Confusing!

Nevertheless, Norwalk Superior Court Judge Bruce Hudok disagreed and authorized the release, provided the names of witnesses were redacted.

Pay close attention, aspiring socialites: Khloe Kardashian is teaching a class on how to become rich and famous by not doing anything at all.

First, get married to someone else famous, even if you've only known him for a month.

Second, have the marriage filmed for your upcoming reality show.

Third, sell the wedding pics to a tabloid.

Crazy Couple

Fourth, draw attention to a celebrity gossip report, refute it and create new headlines by... doing nothing at all. Which was the initial goal, as outlined above.

Khloe practiced the art of the last point earlier today: apparently, Star magazine published a story that said her and Lamar Odom had split because he refused to give her a massage. Was anyone aware of this before Khloe pointed it out?

Would anyone take it seriously? Of course not.

But Khloe took to her blog today and shot down the report, thereby milking attention for it. She wrote:

"I seriously died when I read that! LOL. Star is known for doing evil, fake and RIDICULOUS stories about my family... [it is] becoming the Enquirer. Next thing you know they'll be saying that Kourtney is giving birth to a cat! LOL. All of their stories are absurd, but at least we get a good laugh from their lies."

Would anyone out there be surprised if Khloe's people planted this story, just to give her the platform to deny it? Neither would we.
