Details are emerging from Denver on a suspected plot to assassinate U.S. Sen. and Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama with a high-powered rifle on national TV during his acceptance speech Thursday night.

Authorities have reported a fourth arrest in the unfolding plot after the authorities in suburban Aurora, Colo., stopped a pickup truck for swerving between lanes Sunday morning in what they thought was a routine DUI.

But in the rented vehicle of Tharin Gartrell (below), a 28-year-old felon, they found two high-powered scoped rifles, ammunition, sighting scopes, radios, a cellphone, a bulletproof vest, wigs, drugs and fake IDs.

Tharin Gartrell implicated two other men - Nathan Johnson, 32, and Shawn Adolph, 33, and Johnson's girlfriend, Natasha Gromack. Nathan Johnson also reportedly confirmed the plot to FBI and Secret Service interrogators.

Shawn Adolph reportedly wore a ring with the Nazi swastika. He was injured when he jumped out of a hotel window fleeing Secret Service agents. All are now in federal custody and being detained on drug and weapons charges.

The Obama-Biden ticket will formally be nominated by the Democrats this week. U.S. Attorney Troy Eid insisted there is no credible threat to the party'snational convention or to the Illinois senator and presidential hopeful.

But a Denver television station reports that under questioning, the four men admitted there was indeed a plot to kill Barack Obama during his speech before some 70,000 supporters and a national television audience.

Paula Abdul is excited to work alongside Kara DioGuardi. Forget the concern she showed before.

"This is gonna be a good thing. I'm really thrilled," Abdul told Perez Hilton, likely at the urging of American Idol producers. "For me, I'm excited as can be. I think this time around, it's gonna work adding a new judge. A lot of surprises are in store that are gonna make it more exciting to watch the show."

Double Elimination

Kara DioGuardi and Paula Abdul are like total BFF.

The crazy judge said she brought up the idea of adding DioGuardi to the panel a few years ago. She's known the songwriter since 1999.

"I've been talking about her for years," Abdul said. "I hope the audience gets excited and accepts it. Sometimes its been hard when we've had four judges in the past. They always wanted four judges since the beginning. It'll be good to have two girls, and two guys. Kara's like a sister to me."

We know, we know. High School Musical 3 doesn't come out for another two months.

Still, the following rumor about High School Musical 4 is too exciting not to pass along:

Lost in Zac's Eyes

According to Life and Style Weekly, Zac Efron might actually reprise his role as Troy Bolton in a fourth installment of the franchise that made him famous. The great-haired actor had originally said this fall's big screen version of the film would be his last, but that celebrity gossip magazine reports that it might come down to salary.

"Zac is thinking in the $8 million to $10 million range, but it depends on how the movie opens and how desperately they want him back,” a source told the publication.

Stop staring at a shirtless, wet Zac Efron and focus on the fact that he might return for High School Musical 4.

High School Musical 3 may be focused on the group's graduation, but Disney is still optimistic it can get recruit a few major cast members to return. Money does talk, after all.

"Are we going to have all the cast back? Probably not," Disney Channel Worldwide president Rich Ross said in April when the third movie was first announced. "Will we have some of them? I hope so.

Phew.

The night before Kim Kardashian was officially announced as part of the season seven cast on Dancing with the Stars, she cut her foot. Badly.

Fear spread among the sex tape star and ridiculously rich community; might one of their own not be able to participate on the show?!?

Fortunately, Kim is gonna suck is up, partner with Mark Ballas and put her best Dancing with the Stars foot forward this season. She recenty blogged about the injury on her official website:

What happened was this: I was checking emails in my hotel room and placed my computer on a mirrored desk. There were parts of the glass mirror that were cracked, and when I finished up my work and got up, my foot rubbed against it and it sliced it open.

Kim Kardashian was wheeled into the hospital, but she danced her way out of it. Sort of.

I was rushed by an ambulance to an emergency room nearby and had it checked out! I did not end up getting stitches because it will actually slow the healing process down - and I need to do whatever is safest but fastest healing wise. So, my doctor just "dermabonded" it - basically surgically gluing it back together and keeping it bandaged up!

It was more scary than anything, and all that blood just freaked me out! But I am okay and my foot will be fine!

Demi Lovato thinks that Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas look like a great couple. Just one problem: They aren't one.

"They would look good together, but too bad they're not," the young singer told Us Weekly this weekend at the Arthur Ashe Kids' Day Concert in New York City. "They just get along."

D. Lovato

Lovato added that she isn't dating anyone, either, while stating that any future beau would need to be approved by the more famous trio in the world.

"They always have my back," she said of The Jonas Brothers. "Kevin is always like, 'Do you need anything? Water?' I'm like, 'No, I'm fine... They really help me out with things I am going through."

The unveiling of the Dancing with the Stars cast and a fourth American Idol judge made this quite the banner day for TV news.

We had Kim Kardashian and the new Dancing cast pretty much pegged, but the latter - Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Kara DioGuardi joining American Idol when the musical competition returns this January - came out of left field.

We're certainly looking forward to seeing how this major shake-up plays out. Check out The Hollywood Gossip's bio for a little background on Kara DioGuardi - and click to enlarge some of the photos of this new star we posted below...

"It was kind of a disaster," she tells him over lunch.

Doug Reinhardt lets her remarks sink in for a moment and then responds: "Everything, everybody in your life is hectic... Let's go do somethin.'"

How can you not love a man like that?

Later in the conversation, Lauren Conrad invites Doug to a birthday party for Stephanie Pratt that weekend. We all know that won't end well.
