Cara, Mady, Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin have had it.

Just as the Gosselin children were beginning to cope with the public demise of their parents’ marriage, the are forced with yet another heartbreaking loss:

A forced hiatus from their TLC show brought about by father Jon.

“They were wailing and sobbing; they are angry,” Kate said on the Today Show on October 5, arguing that the show must go on as she and the kids wish.

Jon pulled the plug on production last week, ostensibly because he cares about the best interests of the children. But as Nancy Grace called him out for yesterday, their kids' welfare was never an issue until the show was renamed just Kate Plus 8.

Despite saying he wants to keep his kids out of the spotlight, Jon seems to be seeking attention, partying and basking in the glow of his minor celebrity.

The Gosselin Kids Strike Back

Even their eight kids are starting to think Jon and Kate Gosselin suck.

“It was time to go, but our group started talking about an after party,” a member of his crew said of his recent night out in L.A. “Jon said, ‘I want to go to the party.’"

"By the time we got there, the party was breaking up, but he stayed.”

Also this week, the estranged couple have been arguing over the $200,000+ Jon reportedly took from their joint bank account, leaving Kate with a grand.

“I have a stack of bills,” Kate said, crying that she can't pay them.

While Jon calls Kate’s story a “complete fabrication,” the dude has been on a spending spree, jet setting around and hemorrhaging cash like a madman.

He’s not the only one, though. Kate is also guilty of airing dirty laundry, despite promises to keep things civil. All of which hurts her precious kids too.

“It’s hypocritical to say that ‘We have the children’s best interests at heart,’ then speak poorly about each other in the media,” a source says. “The children have a record of all this, and when they’re old enough, they’re going to see it.”

All we have to say: Free the Gosselin 8!

On last night's season episode of The Hills, Kristin and Justin-Bobby took their fake relationship to the next level, while Speidi argued about kids a lot.

Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff reviews the most recent memorable installment of MTV's "reality" hit, awarding and deducting points as it sees fit ...

Stacie to Kristin: "We're two, like, kinda bitches." So true, and so right. Plus 4.

These girls have really long, fake-looking hair. Except Jayde. She rules. Even.

Heidi Montag thinks having a child will "mature" Spencer Pratt. This logic is comically flawed, but is just the sort of thing an airhead like Heidi would actually believe, and she's far from the only woman to think this, so ... Even.

Lo seems a little uncomfortable at lunch with Kristin, twirling her hair like a madwoman. Kristin Cavallari trying to act makes us squirm, too. Plus 3.

It gets worse when Kristin says she'll mess with Audrina if she messes with her. Does MTV just hand Kristin a pile of quotes, all pertaining to bitchiness and being the girl version of a player, and tell her to work them in? Minus 5.

Speidi has neighbors. They look nice. We feel sorry for them. Minus 2.

Audrina Patridge invites the gang to an Epic Records concert event at an L.A. club. Yay, obvious but effective cross promotion! Vedera was pretty good too. Plus 2.

Props to Stephanie Pratt for flat-out asking what the band looks like and not even feigning interest in the music. Plus 2. Plus 3 more her disgust when it's a chick.

Chiara sighting! Plus 1.

Spencer Pratt on children: "I can barely be around adults, how am I supposed to be around kids?" Plus 8. Side note: How cute is the lil' neighbor kid Enzo!?

Later, the evil one tells his baby crazy wife that he wants to get his "tubes tied like tomorrow." Much like when a guy we knew in college used to say chicks wanted to "bone" him, we're not sure that phrase works for a guy. Minus 2.

Justin-Bobby arrives with Kristin - clean shaven, with his shirt buttoned all the way up, wearing suspenders - then slow dances and makes out with her. Who slow dances at a club? What is this, Laguna Beach senior prom? Minus 9.

OMFG is Justin-Bobby really wearing a sparkly, motorcycle helmet?!? He is. Minus 6.

Finally, the quote of the night goes to Casey Patridge: "Justin's a douche." Close second? Jayde Nicole, re: Kristin: "Omigod I can't stand her!" Plus 12.

TOTAL: +11! SEASON TOTAL: +20! The Hills can annoy the crap out of you sometimes, and may be totally scripted, but man, this show still entertains.

Last night on The City, Whitney Port's pal Roxy Olin made quite a splash during one of her first days on the job, while Olivia Palermo struggled yet again at Elle.

Below, our staff reviews the latest episode of the new "workplace drama" (and The Hills spinoff), awarding and deducting points as we see deem appropriate ...

City Pair

Roxy Olin: "I feel like I can get Kelly in, like, a second. I am, like, so serious about work." No. If you have to say that, girlfriend, it ain't true. Minus 7.

Kelly Cutrone drives a Ford so she doesn't get carjacked in NYC. Plus 4.

Meanwhile, over at Elle, Erin Kaplan assigns Olivia Palermo to buy some fake handbags off the street for an upcoming segment they're doing. The mere thought of this has gotta hurt for a silver-spoon fed rich girl like Olivia. Plus 3.

Their little sting not only involves a girl who's a quasi-famous socialite and on a reality TV show, but involves an MTV crew filming it. Real discreet. Minus 5.

In the end, Olivia can't even do this right. Work is, like, so hard compared to what she normally does. Which is, like, go to fancy parties and stuff. Minus 2.

Holy hell, that is one skinny model at the photo shoot. We're talking like Mischa Barton style. Minus 3. Way to promote a healthy body image, gang.

Roxy's big idea is for the model to get topless. A model for jeans. This is treated as if it were a revolutionary concept. Has no one seen a Calvin Klein ad before? All of their models are topless! Not that we're complaining. Even.

Plus 5 for Whitney warning Roxy that Kelly would be pissed if she didn't ask her before pitching this idea, and for being right. Always trust sage Whitney.

Poor Whitney Port worries that she's seen as the little girl that people walk all over. Don't be silly, Whit. You're the tall girl people walk all over. Minus 2.

The shady bag dealer is wearing a Konvict Muzik jacket. Akon would be proud. Plus 5.

TOTAL: -2. SEASON TOTAL: -3. Try it they might to make all this interesting, The City sort of falls short on execution. A lot more could have been done with Olivia's handbag drama, and there was far too little Whitney in general.

The LAPD will present the case against Dr. Conrad Murray, the sole suspect in the June 25 death of Michael Jackson, to the L.A. County D.A.'s office next week.

LAPD detectives planned to wrap up their exhaustive homicide investigation and present the case by the second week in October. They remain on schedule.

Authorities are waiting on some written evaluations by medical professionals who reviewed evidence surrounding Jackson's death of a suspected overdose.

Law enforcement sources say the medical reports are finally in and the LAPD plans to formally present the case to the D.A.'s office at some point next week.

After that, the D.A. will determine whether to file charges and what kind.

Dr. Conrad Murray Picture

Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson's personal doctor at the time of his death.

Prosecutors have been working with the LAPD for months now, so it's not as if the evidence will be a surprise. Sources say Dr. Murray remains the sole target.

A law enforcement source says there's a "70/30 chance" the D.A. will take the case to the L.A. County Grand Jury rather than charge Dr. Conrad Murray directly.

Murray's girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez, is expected to testify.

The source says this could be a complicated case - obviously - and the very lengthy preliminary hearing that could ensue wouldn't have much upside for prosecutors.

A grand jury indictment would prolong the process, as it would have to be seated and evidence presented, but it would be easy to get and avoids a hearing.

Stay tuned ...

Danielle Staub's marriage to Kevin Maher did not end well.

Few things do when you're a prostitution whore or a narc.

Kevin Maher, who was married to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star for a year in the 1980s, during which he chronicled her lifestyle in the now-infamous book Cop Without a Badge, says Staub has repeatedly slandered him.

He is taking legal action due to the following allegations:

  • That he "raped her on a bed of broken glass"
  • That he "inserted a handgun inside her" and played Russian Roulette
  • That he "killed their her dog by way of hanging it"

Maher, who insinuated his former wife might get whacked by drug lords for publicizing her past, also said that Staub threatened him on Bravo's reunion show.

Danielle Staub Mug Shots

Danielle Staub's past? Not un-shady.

On that Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Danielle Staub toted along a copy of Cop Without a Badge, an exposé about Maher's life as a police informant.

In "the book," Staub, who used to go by the name Beverly Ann Merrill, had a history of prostitution and drug use and once faced federal extortion charges.

Maybe Robert Halderman should have read up on her.

Despite the fact that Danielle's reputation is about as bad as it gets, Maher fears that he's been slandered and defamed by her comments since she got famous.

"It hurt my business and my reputation," Maher says, adding that he wants his day in court to see the 47-year-old mother of two squirm on the witness stand.

Danielle and the father of her two kids, Thomas Staub, divorced in 2007.

Kevin Federline is such trash.

This has been widely known for more than five years, but the full extent of his loserdom is only clear after reading reports of what he did to the Tarzana, Calif., home he rented until May, when he moved out without paying his last six months' rent.

The owners say Federleezy up and disappeared without paying. But before he split, K-Fed turned their house into a cigarette-riddled, spit-stained cesspool.

The owners are demanding $110,661 in unpaid rent and damages, including:

  • Gutters (!?) full of cigarette butts and beer bottles
  • Drawings all over the walls (blame Sean and Jayden)
  • Permanent spit marks (?!) on exterior paint
  • Broken light covers, tiles and light posts
  • Dead trees and plants due to failure to water
  • A room that he turned into a studio
  • Broken dishwasher ... with broken baskets
  • Dismantled smoke detectors (natch)
  • Front driveway oil-leak damage
  • Bathroom windows tinted
K-Fed Lights One Up

Not only that, but the loser didn't even return the garage door opener.

We're not sure what's more astonishing here, that someone could actually cause that much damage (you have to really go out of your way to f*%k some of that stuff up) or that Britney Spears had intercourse with him at least twice.

The home owners are threatening to haul his (increasingly fat) ass to court if K-Fed doesn't pay up. Fortunately, he's going on Celebrity Fit Club soon. Maybe he can just wire whatever money he makes straight to these people.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are officially man and wife ... at least as far as the lavish ceremony and wedding pictures in magazines are concerned.

As far as the wedding being legally binding, however? That hasn't gone down yet. But Lamar has met with his lawyer to hash out a prenuptial agreement.

Odom went to the Beverly Hills law office of divorce-guru Neal Hersh last Friday to hash out terms. Odom's peeps say that "Lamar has a set of balls."

Translation: He's not giving Khloe half of anything.

According to reports, Lamar insists on a prenup that guarantees money and other assets he brings into the contrived marriage are solely his.

Taking it several steps beyond that, rumor has it that Lamar does not wish to give Khloe half of his (significant) earnings going forward, either.

Lamar signed a four-year, $33 million contract with the L.A. Lakers in July.

How will the baller's stance play with his fake bride Khloe Kardashian?

No clue, but we're sure we'll find out on a very special episode of Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami. We'll also learn what kravings Kourtney has this week.

How long will the marriage last?

It takes a lot to lower the fashion bar after the now-infamous mom jeans debacle, but Jessica Simpson is doing her best to defy even our wildest expectations.

Girl had a full weekend of style misadventures. Friday night, she went to an Operation Smile gala in L.A. wearing a black jumpsuit in which she looked pinched.

Saturday, she was in Vegas to celebrate her sister Ashlee Simpson's birthday poolside. Her outfit was again transparent, but equally odd. What is that thing?

Which fashion choice do you think looked better? Or least bad?

Peep the Jessica Simpson pictures below and comment ...

Citing injury, former Republican congressman and U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has officially dropped out of Dancing With the Stars.

The politician said that stress fractures in both feet did him in, forcing him out after he accomplished even less this year than Barack Obama.

Although he and Cheryl Burke were safe from elimination, DeLay said that he won't continue with the competition because he "can't practice."

"If you can't practice, you'll make a fool out of yourself out there, and I don't want to do that to Cheryl," the Texas native said on the show.

He added that he was most upset about missing out on dancing next week's Texas two-step, but Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron promised that if DeLay recovers, he can do the routine on the show's season finale.

"I'd love that," DeLay said. "That'd be wonderful."

Despite his serious injuries, Tom DeLay performed the samba, against the advice of his doctors and DWTS producers, on Monday night, and was safe.

"It's starting to hurt a little bit," he said after Monday's show. "It doesn't hurt when you're dancing... It's because of the adrenaline, you don't feel the pain, and that was the case. But I'm going to really feel it tomorrow, I bet you."

"We just decided we're going to take it one rehearsal at a time and see how far I got," he said. "I reached my goal of actually dancing tonight."

How was he motivated to stay in the competition as long as he did?

"I did so poorly last week, and I wanted to show people that I could dance," the Hammer said. "I never quit at anything! And the reason I came on this show is for the challenge, and I want to face the challenge."

Also eliminated on last night's show? Actress Debi Mazar, who is responsible for some good Entourage quotes, but brought little to the dance floor.

Who do you think will win with Mazar and the Hammer gone?

Levi Johnston is getting ready to bare all in Playgirl, and when you finally see Bristol Palin's baby daddy naked, he's going to be as buff as he's ever been.

That's because "Team Levi is in the process of preparing for his Playgirl appearance," his lawyer Rex Butler reports, saying Levi's working out like a madman.

"He is in the gym six days a week for the next three weeks."

Butler said he wasn't aware of any "particular issue" in which the photos would appear, but the issue should be out "probably before the end of the year."

Johnston, who welcomed a son, Tripp, last December with Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol Palin, still wasn't sure whether to show "the front or the back."

These are tough decisions when you're Levi Johnston.

TEAM LEVI: Johnston with manager/bodyguard Tank.

We're sure you're eagerly awaiting word if you will be able to see Levi Johnston naked full-frontal style, and we promise, you'll know as soon as we do.

In the meantime, the high school dropout who also quit his oil field job, is doing everything he can to milk his 15 minutes of fame (and possibly more).

He can be found in a new TV commercial for the Wonderful brand of pistachios. As Johnston cracks open a nut, shielded by his huge bodyguard and manager Tank, a voiceover chimes in, "Now Levi Johnston does it with protection."

We're sure the Palins all loved that one.

Do you wanna see Levi Johnston naked?
