Celebrity gossip tabloids around the nation didn't need Emeril Lagasse to cook them up a perfect meal this week.

Various publications took one part reality TV couple, mixed it with multiple rumors of an affair by both sides, added a sprinkle of a sex tape and came up with fodder for days on end.

Indeed, one of the most buzzed-about stories in Hollywood these days centers around Jon and Kate Gosselin, heretofore innocent, admired, seemingly innocuous parents of eight adorable children.

But in the latest issue of People, Kate comes clean about the new light in which she sees her husband.

"I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," she said. "I've been struggling with the question of 'Who is this person?' for a while. I remember where I was the first time I heard her name. It's one of those things where you can try to make it go away, but there's blaring, red flashing lights." 

Wow. Harsh words, ones probably not best to share with a national magazine if you're actually concerned about your marriage.

An Affair, Covered

Coming soon: Jon & Kate Plus One Divorce?

Meanwhile, Us Weekly is turning the marital tables on Kate. Its latest edition highlights her rumored affair with bodyguard Steve Neild.

Neild - who once worked for Bill Clinton, so knows something about infidelity! - and Gosseln are "very physical, often touching each other," said an employee at a recent promotional appearance for Jon & Kate Plus 8, adding:

"She was gently poking him, giving him little love pats, totally unlike the slapping she does with Jon. She and Steve were joking around so much, I actually wondered if they were having an affair. There's a lot of open affection between them."

Jillian Harris says her hot tub scene with Jason Mesnick made her dad's jaw drop on The Bachelor, but she's not clearing the air about what happened.

In fact, the newly-minted star of the new season of The Bachelorette calls a query about the liaison "probably the most inappropriate question ever."

"I'm normally a really open girl about these things, but I mean, it's one of those things that anybody can assume that if I had a steamy make-out session with Jason and I went in the hot tub that him and I quote-unquote did it," she said.

"We can also assume that every Bachelor and Bachelorette in the history of the show has done it with people. I think being a 30-year-old grown woman who is successful in her career and has a great background with great morals and values, people can take a look at me and who I am as a person and they're entitled to their opinion."

"I was actually waiting for that question. It's funny how it fires me up because I am doing something that's very public. But let's say I had slept with Jason. Then I don't think that's anybody's business. And let's say I hadn't. That also is nobody's business."

The hot tub hookup with Jillian was one of three close encounters Mesnick shared with the final competitors on The Bachelor in New Zealand.

He eventually said goodbye to Harris, setting up the season finale in which he chose Melissa Rycroft, only to break up with her for Molly Malaney.

Whatever happened in that hot tub - again, she's not saying - Jillian Harris harbors no ill will toward Mesnick or the aforementioned females.

It is hardly unusual in these tough economic times of rising expenses and shrinking incomes to hear tales of financial woe. Life is becoming a more and more difficult balancing act for millions upon millions of Americans.

Take Kevin Federline for example.

According to MSNBC, even the former Mr. Britney Spears is struggling amid the recession, with bodyguards’ salaries and giant booze tabs straining his budget.

Sources estimate Federline’s current Britney Spears-based monthly income at $40,000, including $20,000 in child support for Sean Preston and Jayden James.

But apparently that staggering sum is still not enough to keep Federleezy livin' the high-rollin' lifestyle he’s grown accustomed to over the years.

“Kevin has blown through millions,” the source said. “When he and Britney divorced, Kevin continued a star life. He spends all the money he gets.”

“Kevin can't afford the rent, his help, the food and the booze it takes to keep up (his home),” the source explained. So where does it all go?

Federline’s food bills alone allegedly run over $2,000 a month. Adding that sum to the thousands it takes to pay for housing expenses, nannies, on top of his steep bar bills and bodyguards and there simply isn’t all that much left over.

As for his solution to this issue, the source believes Federline may soon beg the Bank of Britney Spears for a little more support. Perhaps they can work out a plan for Sam Lutfi to pay K-Fed directly and cut out the middle men.

Just hearing the two mentioned together makes us yearn for their bygone era of marital bliss. Click to enlarge some vintage Britney-K-Fed pics ...

Remember Katie Rees?

The former Miss Nevada 2007 was stripped of her crown when a series of racy photos of her were leaked soon after the coronation.

Now, following the announcement that Carrie Prejean won't receive the same punishment after her set of topless pics were released, Rees is speaking out. She told E! News the development is a "huge double standard."

"Semi-nude photos are semi-nude photos," Rees said, comparing the topless lingerie pics of Prejean with her own images (linked to above).

In December 2006, however, Miss Universe owner Donald Trump - the same man that said this is the "21st century" and the pics of Prejean were mostly "lovely" - deemed Rees' photos inappropriate and stripped Katie of her crown.

But what about the contracts both Rees and Prejean signed? Each stated that contestants must own up to any history of naked or semi-naked photographs.

Lost amidst Prejean's gay marriage stance is the simple fact that she violated her contract. What's the point of making such documents if there's no incentive to adhere to them?

"I don't know why I am the only one who was punished for their behavior," Rees said. "I was only 19 when those photos were taken of me, and it was me in my personal life, far before I was crowned Miss Nevada. Carrie actually posed for these professional semi-nude photos. I think that's worse."

You're totally right, Katie. But Prejean cited the Bible, said God spoke to her and got narrow-minded Christians on her side. See where you went wrong now?

On the campaign trail, Sarah Palin chided Barack Obama for writing two books about his relatively young life while not passing any worthwhile legislation.

Now the former Republican V.P. candidate is ready to follow suit!

Palin will publish a memoir with HarperCollins that will come out in Spring 2010 - the same time she becomes eligible for reelection as Alaska's governor.

The Alaska governor's book, as yet untitled, will cover her many career accomplishments some of the controversies surrounding herself and her family.

The memoir will span her Alaskan childhood through last year's campaign and beyond, and will likely cover her political beliefs and family life.

The pregnancy of her teen daughter Bristol Palin, who gave birth in December, will surely be included. Whether or not Levi Johnston tapped that while Sarah slept in the next room will probably remain shrouded in mystery, however.

"In fairness to my family, this is going be a good opportunity for me to cash in on them, too, because there have been so many misperceptions out there about who we are and what we believe in," Palin said in a statement. 

Other possible topics that Palin's ghostwriter of choice might cover:

  • Emotional family bonding sessions on the front porch, while sipping on wolf blood and enjoying the view of Russia
  • Her incredible wedding night sex with Todd Palin, after they waited to do it until they were married, of course
  • Patented techniques for different kinds of winks
  • The Palin-Carrie Prejean ticket strategies for 2012

Nadya Suleman is not too proud to accept handouts.

In fact, the fertile one is all for it. She's accepted donations for her newborns, sold family photos, applied for food stamps, enlisted free nannies she later fired for being spies and sponged off taxpayers in countless other ways.

Octomom From Behind

But she's drawing the line at plastic surgery. But only because she doesn't feel she needs it - otherwise, what's another $20,000 for the public to pick up?

"I would never even accept a tummy tuck even if it were offered because I don't need it," Octomom nobly told Radar Online. "I'm actually shocked myself at my own body ... my goal is to do things as naturally as possible."

Except for being artificially inseminated with 14 frickin' kids, that is.

Although Octomom says she's had "absolutely no time to do anything yet," she is convinced that she'll eventually get back into top shape on her own.

"I would like to join a gym," she says without explanation of how she would pay for the membership (or a nanny to watch her kids) on her $0 salary.

"My friends nicknamed me 'Rubberband' because after every [child] I had, I was back to a size 2 in a month. Now, it's three months, and I'm not a 2 yet. I'm a 5 or 6, but I'll get there. I like to be small because I have extraordinary energy."

Wait ... Nadya Suleman has friends?

While she has no plans to go under the knife, Suleman did add without irony that she is feeling compelled to provide for her children.

"What's going on now is that I feel obligated - almost compelled - to earn a living to take care of my kids," she says.

By whoring them out on a reality show, natch.

Adam Lambert who?!?

Okay, Kris Allen's incredible performance of "Heartless" didn't make us forget about this season's American Idol favorite, but it did cause us to single out a different contestant than usual as our favorite this week.

Following a rendition of One Republic’s “Apologize” that Kara and Randy didn't love (even though they chose it for him), Kris blew the panel away with his take on Kanye West's single.

Jackson thought Allen's version was better than the original, DioGuardi called it “bold, brave, fearless" and Simon said:  “I had written you out [out of the competition]. That, however, has all changed.”

Adam Lambert, Cryin

Who is your favorite finalist? Click on each photo for a closer look at each.

While Kris earned the top performance of the night, Lambert and Danny Gokey didn't disappoint. Here's a rundown of their evening:

- Cowell got special permission for Lambert to sing U2’s “One." As you'd expect, Adam knocked it out of the park, alternating from eerily quiet to impressively loud. Simon said it was “brilliant,” while Paula pretty much crowned him the season’s winner.

Up next? Aerosmith’s “Cryin,” a perfect choice. Kara summed it up simply: “We’ll see you at the finals." Listen to this rendition NOW.

- We didn't love Paula assignment of the Terence Trent D’Arby hit “Dance Little Sister" for Gokey. Neither did the judges, as it didn't receive rave reviews.

But Danny’s own selection of Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful” earned him high praise from Simon. He referred to the performance as “a vocal master class.”

It may have come a week later than many fans were hoping, but Ty Murray was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars last night.

And the rodeo stalwart seemed psyched about it.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Murray said after the show, laughing. “I don’t have to learn any more dances.”

Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower Dance

Of course, this doesn't mean Jewel's husband regrets trading in his chaps for sequins.

“The whole reason I did this show is because it was nice for cowboys to be represented in something so pop culture, and this show did in spades,” Murray said. “For me to be able to do this is a fantastic opportunity. You don’t realize how big something like this is until you’re on a show that 25 million people watch.”

This leaves a trio of celebs remaining to compete in the finals next week. Click on a shot of each of them performing during the semifinals below:

  • Off to the Finale
  • Semifinal Performance

Who do you think will win?

Katy Perry is ready to walk down the aisle. With someone.

"I'd like to get married if I find that 'one' everyone talks about," she tells the June issue of UK Cosmopolitan. "I'm not in a rush, but last night I was thinking, 'Is it wrong for me to want to marry soon and have that feeling?'"

Katy Perry on Raising Hope

"And I wonder when that person is going to present himself to me. To me, marriage isn't about bank accounts and houses; it's about finding the one you can hitch your hip to and build on each other's strengths," she goes on.

The singer, who split from Gym Class Heroes' Travis McCoy last January, but supposedly got back together with him recently, tells Cosmo she's currently single.

She adds that she doesn't like it that way.

"I don't like being single, no. I live a fantastic life, but at the end of the day all I want to do is pick up my phone and share it with someone," she says.

"The other day I'd sold a million records in the U.S. and I didn't have anyone to tell. It was actually a really lonely moment."

Being famous has made it harder to find romance as well.

"If I go out to dinner with a guy, people automatically think we're dating," Katy Perry added. "And then when you do start dating, it becomes a race to the altar. I'm like, 'Come on, can't we just be boyfriend and girlfriend?'"

Her ideal guy?

"Firstly, he has to be stronger than I am mentally. He can't be jealous because I'm a very touchy-feely person. And he'd need to be able to tell me both yes and no. I'll probably end up with someone who's a bit older, a few steps ahead of me."

Wow.

We'll publish a detailed recap of the final three performance show on American Idol tomorrow, but we couldn't wait another second to shower praise on one of tonight's performances.

And it wasn't given by Adam Lambert for a change!

Kris Allen delivered the goods - and then some! - with an acoustic rendition of "Heartless." Sorry, Gokeheads. But next week's finale has to come down to Allen vs. Lambert.

Watch Allen's rendition of "Heartless" below and share your thoughts in the Comments section:
