This is shocking.

A Tony Award nominee has rejected the advances of a former convict/cocaine addict/call girl/sex tape star.

Witnesses told Radar Online that Danielle Staub - whose past adventures with drugs, men and the law have been well documented - approached Constantine Maroulis at a party in New York City this week.

“They had never met before, she met him that night at the party,” a source said about the encounter. “She was all about him but I don’t think there was much interest on his part. When she gave him her number, he didn’t reciprocate.”

Ouch. Dissed - and dimissed!

Maroulis currently stars in Broadway’s Rock of Ages, for which he was nominated for the aforementioned Tony this year. He finished sixth on season four of American Idol.

The date was June 4.

That's eight full days after Ed Swiderski got down on one knee and popped the question to Jillian Harris on the teary season finale of The Bachelorette.

That was when he railed Lindsey Johnson, according to Us Weekly.

A day later, he sent a flirty text to Bethany Steffen, texting her to "bring beer and condoms" over to his place, Steffen herself tells the gossip magazine.

Smooth line, Ed.

The scorned, humiliated women are speaking out now to warn Jillian Harris about her new fiancee's two-timing ways, which were rumored for months.

"Ed's not worth my time, but if I can help someone avoid heartbreak, I'm gonna do that," Bethany Steffen said of her lying, cheating cad of an ex.

The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, has apparently been betrayed by fiance Ed Swiderski. In other news, Nick and Vanessa are back on and Jon Gosselin is a "bad dad."

Ed Swiderski was reportedly dating both Steffen and Lindsey Johnson behind each other's backs prior to filming The Bachelorette, which began in late March.

Even while he was on the hit ABC show, he texted Lindsey Johnson that Harris wasn't his "type" and that he prefers "all blondes." He also wrote, "I love you." Cold.

According to the report, Ed lied to Harris when he said he had to bow out of episode five because he thought he'd lose his job as a Chicago software consultant.

Ed eventually returned to the show, and went on to win the final rose. But during his time back home, both Steffen and Johnson say they slept with Swiderski.

He then told them he was off to "a business trip in Texas," when in reality he returned to film episode seven of The Bachelorette and declare to Harris that he had "reprioritized" when it came to balancing work and tight shorts romance.

Reported Ed Swiderski playthings Bethany Steffen and Lindsey Johnson.

Jillian herself has denied the women's claims in an interview, saying "It's not possible ... This is a bump in the road. We are a team and we'll get through it."

But Bethany Steffen warns, "Lindsey and I are both smart girls, and Ed just has this way of making people believe what he wants. Jillian needs to be careful."

Adds Lindsey Johnson, "I feel gross, used and completely violated. It shocks me that he was able to do something like that to me."

Will Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski last?

Ever the cutie, Vanessa Hudgens appeared on MTV's It’s On With Alexa Chung yesterday morning.

The 20-year-old actress and the show's host engaged in a few friendly battles during their time together, going at it in arm wrestling, egg crushing and tug of war.

From there, Vanessa answered a few questions, none of which had to do with Zac Efron for a change. Here's a summation of what she said:

On protection in her new home: “I actually have a taser right next to my bed. It makes me feel pretty bad-ass. There’s like a laser beam on it."

On her character in Bandslam: “It was really nice [playing a different character] because I get bored playing the same thing over and over again. It was just nice to step out of that and do something completely different. I didn’t let myself smile as much as I was used to.”

On being clumsy: “I actually fell down a flight of stairs a few days ago into gravel. Now, I have all these lovely wounds. So, it’s awesome. I’m a classy faller, though.”

Hudgens also showed off some serious wardrobe skills: she entered the studios donning one outfit (below, left) and left the bulding wearing another:

  • Pretty in Purple Outfit
  • White Wonder

Maybe you've heard. Jennifer Aniston is so unlucky in love! The poor thing! Single at the ancient age of 40, will totally never meet and date another decent guy.

Get real.

Jennifer Aniston Baby Bump?

We're not sure if it's celeb news publications' obsessing over this oversimplified point, or Aniston playing into the caricature, or a little of both. But somehow, despite dating numerous hot guys, she became the poster child for pathetic loneliness.

People break up all the time, including celebrities who have been married before. Stars who are married right now will also get divorced. She is not alone.

Just because she was dumped for Angelina Jolie four years ago doesn't mean people have to feel sorry for Aniston indefinitely. Let the woman move on!

Judging by Jennifer Aniston photos like this, courtesy of her new spread in Elle magazine, she shouldn't have a problem landing a good man eventually...

She's known as much for her traumatic romantic past as for her acting. But if this is the picture of loneliness, Jennifer Aniston is doing something right.

The late Michael Jackson had a contentious relationship with his father, who he said abused him mentally and physically. The dude is also kind of insane, so it stands to reason that people don't want him near Michael's children.

Well, he won't be. Much, anyway.

A declaration from Joe Jackson, filed in court this week, makes clear that the family patriarch supports Michael Jackson's decision to make his wife Katherine the legal guardian of his three kids, and that he will keep his distance.

Joe says in the declaration: "I have had a close family relationship with the grandchildren since their birth. I do visit the family residence from time to time and will continue to do so, however I will not be involved in raising the children."

Joe continues, "I understand that all decision-making authority regarding the children will rest with Katherine Jackson. Katherine is a wonderful caretaker and guardian, and has done an excellent job raising our children and other grandchildren."

Katherine Jackson was awarded full custody of Paris, Prince and Blanket at this week's hearing, as stipulated in Michael Jackson's last will, signed in 2002.

Joe seems more or less cool with that, even if he wants to stop by from time to time. He had no further comment on whether Omer Bhatti is Michael's son.

Why would Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey ever get back together?

To help OK! sell magazines, obviously!

Wooo, Jessica!

According to that reputable publication, which apparently decided to take a week off from speculating on the love life of Robert Pattinson, Jessica has been going out and partying lately to make her ex-husband Nick Lachey just a little bit jealous.

Not her ex-boyfriend of 18 months, Tony Romo, but her ex-husband, who she separated from in 2005. And who has already said they're not back together.

According to OK!, while John and Tony may have each been the perfect Mr. Right Now - "she knows her true Mr. Right was, is and always will be Nick Lachey."

Which is why they got divorced. Remember that, OK!? Great juxtaposing of those separate pictures to make it look like they're together, too. Very real ...

As every woman knows, having a public affair with a sexy rocker would make any man jealous. Not that Jessica has done this, but hey, if she did, OK! says it would be "just what she needs to make Nick take notice."

Well, if he weren't dating Holly Letchworth.

“Nick is the guy Jess knew she should be with, but they were too young and their lives catapulted so quickly into fame that they never were able to catch up,” a pal says.

“She’s changed so much since then and found out a lot about herself.”

“He’ll always hold a special place in her heart. It was her first love,” the pal says of their marriage. “Jess isn’t sure if Nick would give her a chance at this point, but she’d love to be friends. She says a part of her will always love him.”

Mmm hmm. Friends will probably have to do.

Should Jessica and Nick get back together?

Life is tough for the cast of Eclipse.

You make a lot of money doing what you love; you're adored by millions of fans; and you jet off to beautiful locales such as Vancouver to film.

Such was the case for Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz and Nikki Reed this week, as the trio packed its bags and boarded a plane for Canada. Shooting on the third film in the Twilight Saga will commence there this month.

Not all the cast members took off by themselves, however. Reed brought along boyfriend Paris Latsis, and even stopped to give the paparazzi a bit of PDA in the Los Angeles airport:

PDA

We can't help but wonder: Where were Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart while their co-stars flew over the border?

Perhaps sharing one final night alone together, before the Eclipse cameras - and celebrity gossip cameras - start rolling again? Your guess is as good as ours.

As you ponder their whereabouts, click on the following pics of Greene, Lutz and Reed at the airport:

Columbia Pictures has purchased the rights to Michael Jackson's final days - as in the King of Pop's 2009 rehearsal footage - for $60 million, according to reports.

Concert promoter AEG Live agreed to sell the footage for a feature-length film. A judge still needs to sign off on the transaction before any film can be made.

The plan is for Columbia to craft a PG-rated, feature-length film revolving around Michael's preparations for what was supposed to be a 50-show comeback.

The $60 million encompasses merchandising rights, product tie-ins, a special director's cut, etc. AEG has said that more than 100 hours of footage exists.

The movie is allowed to be no longer than 150 minutes.

Announcing the Tour

Michael Jackson announcing what would have been his comeback tour.

Jackson's will executors, John McClain and John Branca, spoke about what they called "significant value" in hammering out various deals to enrich Jackson's estate and beneficiaries in the wake of his passing and the worldwide interest in him.

Of course, that's assuming there will be a demand for such a film - and that Michael's mother Katherine Jackson, who has signed a confidentiality agreement allowing her access to the estate's future business dealings, has no objections.

Why would she? Not only does the contract dictate that the film must show Jackson in a positive light, but 90 percent of the profit will go to her son's estate.

The singer's estate will be divided between Katherine, Jackson's three children (two of whom Dr. Arnold Klein may have fathered) and various charities.

Sounds like the green light will be granted to us.

Amid repeated reports that she and Chris Brown are sneaking around together, Rihanna says there is no need to keep her ex half a football field away.

Brown, who will be sentenced today after pleading guilty to assauling the "Umbrella" singer in February, is under court order not to communicate with her at all.

Moreover, he is not to come within 50 yards of her – and 10 yards if they're both at the same event. Rumors suggest the two have hooked up in NYC recently.

"If asked, we will tell the court that all that's necessary is a level-one order: That Brown not annoy, molest or harass her," Rihanna's lawyer Donald Etra said.

"No stay-away order was ever requested by Rihanna."

Could this legally clear the way for the reconciliation some believe has already begun in secret? It will be up to judge Patricia Schnegg to decide that issue.

At the last hearing, Schnegg said she'd consider Rihanna's request for a less-restrictive order against Chris Brown, which could allow the pair to be together.

Etra wouldn't comment on whether the singers are still romantically involved. Rihanna will not be attending the hearing. Brown is required to be there.

After pleading guilty to felony assault, Brown is expected to be sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community labor to be served in Virginia. He will also complete a year of domestic violence classes, and pay fines.

In exchange for the plea, he will avoid serving any time behind bars, and a second felony charge of making criminal threats is expected to be dropped.

Last month, Brown publicly apologized for the incident for the first time, saying, "I have told Rihanna countless times, and I am telling you today, that I am truly sorry and that I wasn't able to handle the situation differently and better."

Is Chris Brown's sentence fair?

The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski would like to simply be celebrating their engagement, but he finds himself being hit with allegations that he was not faithful - and was in two (!) relationships while filming the show.

Lindsey Johnson and Bethany Steffen both claim that Ed, a Chicago computer software consultant, was stringing them along while he was wooing Jillian on TV.

And that he continued to do so even after he and Harris got engaged.

Some reports have claimed Jillian Harris feels "betrayed" by her final rose recipient and that her relationship with Ed Swiderski has been "destroyed."

Not so, says the Canadian cutie.

“I am not destroyed!” Harris said in an interview. “There’s a little bit of anxiety that comes with this news, but I am absolutely not destroyed.”

Was - or is - Ed Swiderski two-timing Jillian Harris?

“What did he do wrong?” Jillian asks. “My big concern is with everything that happened after the day we got engaged, and after we got engaged he has been so open with me. He’s told me all of this, every text message and every phone call."

"I use his computer. I know that any communication he had with these girls after [The Bachelorette] was strictly platonic. I’m not worried about it."

Last month, Ed Swiderski talked about Lindsey Johnson: “When I left for this show we were not dating, but I certainly still had feelings for her.”
