As advertised, Hilary Duff is coming to Gossip Girl in the teen drama's new season, and the singer-actress was spotted on the New York City set Monday afternoon.

The Duffster is set to play a famous film star named Olivia who ends up studying at NYU with some other characters (Dan, Blair, Vanessa, Georgina, Scott, etc).

Here's Hilary and her rumored love interest, Penn Badgley:

In other guest star news, Gossip Girl signed Tyra Banks to appear on the show this season, reportedly as a character in a faux movie starring Duff's character.

Is this a sign of the show getting more notoriety and credibility, or of jumping the shark? Should we see more of Blake Lively in low-cut tops instead?

What do you think, Gossip Girl fans?

The Saved by the Bell gang's all here! Almost!

Bayside High School's lovable loser, Samuel "Screech" Powers, portrayed by Dustin Diamond, was notably airbrushed out of an old cast picture and left off the cast's reunion on the cover of People magazine, released earlier this week.

Was it because of his upcoming Saved By the Bell tell-all book? His nasty sex tape? His Celebrity Fit Club meltdowns? His troubles with Wisconsin mortgage loans?

Yes, yes, yes and yes.

“The other cast members were very uncomfortable with including him,” a People spokesperson confirms. Ouch, Double-D. Dissed by Lark Voorhies. That hurts.

Diamond's forthcoming Saved By the Bell memoir is a big reason his old pals' defenses are up. Mark-Paul Gosselaar openly slammed him to Newsweek.

"What's he going to say?" Gosselaar sarcastically posited. "We were f--king groupies at 14? I can't wait to read his book, because I don't have a memory of a lot of the shows. Maybe it was because I was doing lines off of the audience members' a----."

"I'm sure he's going to write something crazy. So he's writing a book, I'm not afraid of what he has to say. There are not too many skeletons in my closet."

How did Diamond feel about the blatant snub? Apparently the same way Screech felt after being repeatedly brushed aside by love interest Lisa Turtle.

"Of course he cared he wasn't invited," a Diamond pal said. "Wouldn't you?"

Star in one lousy sex tape and your childhood pals pretend you never existed. Let this be a lesson to all you derelict, unsuccessful stand-up comedians out there.

Will this finally put an end to the rumors?

When asked by Great Britain's OK! magazine about his relationship with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson gave a simple answer:

We are just very good friends.

Pattinson added that he was "young, free and single," giving hope to millions of Twilight followers around the world.

For months, of course, tabloids, fans and co-stars have speculated on the status of Stewart and Pattinson, as one report even suggested the former was pregnant with the latter's baby. Ha!

  • As Joan Jett
  • The Thinker

Robert Pattinson stares at his "good friend" Kristen Stewart. Do you believe their relationship is strictly platonic?

Elsewhere in the interview with OK!, Pattinson spoke on his obsessive fans and his status as a sex symbol. A few excerpts:

On female admirers: I had no idea people could get so obsessed. But it’s not scary – it’s amazing. People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not.

On strange fan encounters: One time there were these four girls, in Chicago I think, and they had all scratched their necks until they bled and then when they came up to me they had these bleeding scabs. It was gross!

On his status as a heart throb: I’m so surprised things have worked out the way they have, I just keep thinking the whole time: I don’t really have the right personality to fit in to that kind of role.

** Update: A few readers have left comments, claiming this is an old interview. If that's the case, we apologize, but the OK! article itself is dated "August 3" and shows photos from last month's Comic-Con festival.

However, if this conversation with Pattinson did, indeed, take place many months ago, it means there's still a chance that Robsten is a full-fledged couple. Holla!

In what is probably a good move for him, but a bad one for celebrity gossip sites who love a good feud, Nick Cannon took to (what else) his Twitter page to address the ongoing battle between his wife Mariah Carey and rapper Eminem.

Cannon Twittered various philosophical, Biblical quotes about rising above anger and not giving in to revenge: "Never take your own revenge, but rather give place unto the wrath," read one of his messages on the social networking site.

He also included a direct Bible quote, "'I will bless those that bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.' Genesis 12:3" and insightful thoughts like:

"Those who feed into negativity must examine there [sic] purpose on this earth."

Eminem vs. Mr. and Mrs. Nick Cannon: A feud that shall not end.

The Tweets are a reaction to Eminem's latest track, "The Warning," in which the rapper goes after the Cannons directly, and swears he had a previous relationship with the singer, with the nude Mariah Carey pictures to prove it even.

Eminem initially ripped Carey in the song "Bagpipes from Baghdad." Carey got revenge by portraying a stalker in her video "Obsessed" that looked remarkably like Eminem, though Carey and her husband have denied any parody.

Whose side are you on?

Some promotional photos for The CW's freshman fall series, The Beautiful Life, have just been released, including this hot new cast picture below.

Conspicuously absent? Mischa Barton. She says she's really happy now, but we are guessing the producers are not so happy with their lead star.

Word has it they've been working on a contingency plan in case Barton is not stable enough to follow through with filming. Probably a smart move.

Here's the cast, sans Mischa ...

It's a Beautiful Life for these young hotties, with or without Barton.

Just in case you thought Mischa was gone altogether, though, think again. A second photo was released that shows Barton, who reportedly tried to take her own life last week, looking suitably angry and bored in this episode still:

Will troubled Mischa Barton star on The Beautiful Life all season?

The Dancing with the Stars cast is coming together.

And it's very depressing.

Rob Kardashian Dancing

Last month, reports indicated that Ashley Hamilton had signed on for the new season. Who, you might ask? Exactly.

Now, Life & Style confirms that former Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno will bring his steroid-laden body to the dance floor. The actor, who was actually training Michael Jackson for his comeback tour before the music icon died, told the tabloid:

"I had a good meeting with the producers for Dancing With the Stars, it was really positive, and they loved the idea of having me on the show. I've never done that type of dancing before, so I know that I'll have to train hard. I'm a glutton for punishment, so I'll give it my best shot."

Meanwhile, E! News reports that Dean McDermott is negotiating to compete on the show. He's known solely for marrying Tori Spelling and exploiting their children on reality TV.

"He wants to do it," a source said. "He'd be really good at it, too."

Oh, goody. We can barely contain our excitement.

While Twilight was a hit, and the buzz over New Moon is off the charts, controversy over the final two films in the Twilight Saga continues to grow.

By now, most fans are familiar with the shady decision to replace Rachelle Lefevre in Eclipse with Bryce Dallas Howard. Go read more about it and let your opinion be heard.

Now, an author is taking Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer to court for allegedly stealing ideas for Breaking Dawn.

As first reported by TMZ, Jordan Scott sent a cease and desist letter to the book's publisher, stating the fourth installment in the franchise contains a "striking and substantial similarity" to Scott's book, "The Nocturne."

breaking dawn

Scott says her novel was published in 2006; though, strangely, we can't find it on Amazon.com.

She claims that numerous scenes in the books are eerily similar, such as (Breaking Dawn spoiler alert!)...

  • Both contain a post-wedding sex scene;
  • Both depict a scene about a woman who's sick because she's carrying a child with "evil powers;"
  • Both focus on the death of the main character's wife.

In response, Meyer's rep wrote to TMZ: "The claim that 'Breaking Dawn' by Stephenie Meyer somehow infringes on an alleged book by someone named Jordan Scott is completely without merit. Neither Stephenie Meyer nor her representatives had any knowledge of this writer or her supposed book prior to this claim."

Man. It was a lot more fun when the only breaking news about these movies/books involved the latest Robert Pattinson pictures.

There are two sides to every story. Now Kate Major, Jon Gosselin's new love interest, is sitting down to tell hers. In an exclusive interview with E! tomorrow night, she will talk about where things stand between her and Gosselin.

She'll also describe how they met, what their relationship meant for Hailey Glassman, and the future Major is hoping for with the 32-year-old father of eight.

"I would be lying if I said there wasn't instant chemistry between us," says Kate Major of Jon Gosselin, whom she met earlier this year while she was working as a reporter for Star, covering the unraveling of his 10-year marriage.

The two of them went out to dinner the following night.

Kate Major, Jon Gosselin

Kate Major, a.k.a. Kate 2.0, is dishing on love at first sight.

"Do I regret anything? Not really," Major says, although, apparently she has had some second thoughts. "Would I do it again? Probably not," she admits.

Major also opens up about interviewing both Gosselin and his first postmarital lover, Hailey Glassman, whom Jon spent a weekend with in St.-Tropez and was rumored to have gotten engaged to two weeks before being spotted out with Major.

"Right now, there is no happily ever after," Kate Major reveals. However, "[I was] really, really impressed - and I still am - with the person that he is."

"It's a huge relief to finally talk," she says. "I haven't been speaking a lot in the past few days because of how crazy everything is, but I'm ready to talk."

Here's a little sneak preview of Kate Major's interview ...

Fans are split on whether or not Kara DioGuardi's return to American Idol is a good thing.

But show executives are reacting to the news like the judge is the second coming of Simon Cowell. Here's what Fox president of alternative programming, Mike Darnell, said of DioGuardi:

“Kara’s spitfire personality and sharp musical sensibility infused American Idol with a new energy last year. She clearly has a keen eye for talent - spotting Adam Lambert’s superstar quality early on last season - and her performance on the season 8 finale was one of the most memorable in recent Idol history.”

Darnell forgot to mention that Kara has to lighten the heck up. She isn't actually God's gift to music.

Said American Idol producer Simon Fuller:

"We are so happy to welcome back Kara for her second season with Idol. She is a breath of fresh air and her passion for music and her understanding of talent is invaluable. This show is all about discovering new talent, and Kara’s championing of Adam Lambert is proof positive of her great instinct.”

Earlier this summer, DioGuardi got married to Mike McCuddy.

Former Laguna Beach star Jason Wahler got arrested Friday night after he got drunk and threw his shoes at people. Yes, really, according to law enforcement.

Wahler got into a scuffle with a bouncer at the Ocean Avenue Brewery in his hometown of Laguna Beach, Calif., and eventually got himself ejected from the joint.

Douchenozzle

Somehow Jason Wahler, who used to date Lauren Conrad on The Hills, made his way back inside, police later said, and the bouncers had to toss him out again.

The best part?

Witnesses say a frustrated Jason removed his shoes and hurled them into the bar, at which point security came out to remove him, and Wahler threw a punch.

The cops arrived and arrested the reality TV loser for battery and public intoxication. The Jason Wahler mug shot above was thus added to his personal gallery.

Oh, and Wahler still has 11 days left on his probation stemming from his drunken, racist, homophobic, violent tirade against a tow-truck driver back in 2007.

That means if he gets convicted, he faces even more trouble. Enjoy jail!

Wahler was recently fired from some movie role he somehow landed. Maybe that played into this outburst somehow. Or maybe he is just a drunken idiot.
