Joanne Borgella was one of four American Idol contestants eliminated last night, along with Amy Davis, Garrett Haley and Colton Berry.

Still, it's worth reporting that Borgella and season seven favorite David Archuleta actually have a connection to another institution almost as popular as Idol: High School Musical.

According to High School Musical star KayCee Stroh (a.k.a. "the pop and lock girl" in those movies) she and contestant Archuleta performed together at a Park City, Utah, benefit years ago.

David Archuleta and Garrett Haley performed together last night. Guess which one was voted off American Idol before the evening was over.

"I think I was about 18 and he was about 12," Stroh said at the American Idol Top 24 party on Thursday night in Hollywood. "Both of us are from Salt Lake City, and there was a benefit concert and the [organizer] needed young kids to be the backup singers for a gospel piece. I remember we were rehearsing one day and he had a solo part. I expected him to have this cute little boy voice."

As Stroh found out then - and Idol fans known now - this was anything but the case: "I was blown away! He packs such a powerful punch when he sings. I remember thinking instantly, ‘Boy, this one is going to be a star someday,'" she said.

Oddly enough, Stroh also models for Torrid, a hip plus-size clothing line. Another model with a past contract with that company? You guessed it: Borgella.

We already knew that Aaron Carter was in love with Kaci Brown.

Now, it turns out that Nick Carter's little brother also has an affection for Mary Jane!

Aaron was arrested yesterday in Kimble County, Texas with at least two ounces of marijuana. TMZ has confirmed Aaron was pulled over on I-10 for speeding. When police searched his vehicle, they found enough pot to make Matthew McConaughey jealous.

Aaron will be arraigned later today.

Aaron Carter better hope he comes across this tough in prison. We can only imagine what happens to boy band singers behind bars...

Sam Lutfi was formally served today with a temporary restraining order to keep him away from Britney Spears, People reports this afternoon.

The order was sought by the temporary co-conservators of Spears' $100 million estate - her father Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet.

A restraining order was obtained weeks ago, but Lutfi had managed to avoid getting formally served with it - which is required for it to take hold.

Until today, that is. Beeyotch.

Osama Lutfi had been accused by Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, of drugging and verbally abusing the struggling singer, trying to control her every move.

Britney Spears has been hospitalized twice already in 2008 and recently spent six days in the UCLA psychiatric ward.

Reports say Sam Lutfi was served at 11 a.m. PST as he left his apartment in West Los Angeles. Finally, they tracked him down. You got served, sucka!

The restraining order, which forbids Sam Lutfi from getting within 250 yards of Spears, her homes and her family's homes, alleges:

"Mr. Lutfi has drugged Britney Spears. He has cut Britney's home phone line and removed her cell phone chargers. He claims to control everything."

More details to come.

Christian Slater, who once punched his girlfriend, Michelle Jonas, in the face while drunk and high on heroin, has turned into a real softie.

The reason? New girlfriend and Jimmy Choo shoe founder, Tamara Mellon.

"He does romantic things for me daily," Tamara Mellon told Us Weekly at last night's benefit for EIF's Women's Cancer Research Fund.

She and Christian Slater were set up through a mutual friend in London about five months ago. The rest has been totally romantic.

Tamara Mellon has won the heart of Christian Slater.

"What can I say, I was really blown away," Christian Slater, 38, told Us of meeting Tamara Mellon, 40. "I just couldn't believe it!

"She is beautiful, but there is a lot more going on with her, and we have already had a lot of great adventures together."

No word on whether said adventures include wild nights out or quiet evenings on the sofa watching the Gene Simmons sex tape.

"We are just taking it one day at a time," Slater said. "It's wonderful."

Next up for the couple: This weekend's Academy Awards.

Tamara Mellon said she has been "very busy this week getting all the shoes ready" for the celebrities on the red carpet.

Jamie Spears apparently let Britney Spears out of her cage for a while yesterday, and released the holds on her credit cards as well.

The alleged singer was spotted spending some serious dough yesterday at Forever 21 at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, California.

Careful Driver

Britney Spears wore her signature accessories - yellow, form-fitting top, black pants, big shades and one huge bodyguard. Back away!!

No word on what Britney bought at Forever 21, but if she wants to feel 21, she might try hitting the gym sometime instead of the mall.

Sorry. Just saying. Britney circa 2002 was so friggin' hot! Any Britney Spears pictures from the past 3-4 years don't even compare.

Mess with Britney Spears and this dude will end you.

While the star gets treatment for bipolar disorder, her conservators - dad Jamie and lawyer Andrew Wallet - are keeping her on a tight leash.

They're trying to cut her off from the bad seeds like Sam Lutfi, who remains under investigation by the LAPD for drugging Britney.

Due to a few racy photos being leaked, some have begun to question the status of Miley Cyrus as a role model. But don't count her Hannah Montana costar Shanica Knowles among these critics.

"She's doing an amazing job and I'm not really surprised by her success because she definitely deserves it," Knowles said of Cyrus. "She is, and she always has been [a good role model]."

The 17-year-old, who plays Amber Addison in the Hannah Montana series, added: "She's really talented, and she's really spiritual and she has a good heart."

George Clooney says he won't beat out Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor at Sunday's Academy Awards, drawing a political analogy.

"For me, it's like being Hillary Clinton," the Michael Clayton star said. "If it weren't for Barack Obama, it would have been a very good year."

"I thought Daniel Day-Lewis had the best performance of the year."

Apart from his own race, the boyfriend of Sarah Larson handicapped all the other major categories, boasting to Time Magazine that he's never lost an Oscar pool. We'll see how accurate his picks are Sunday, February 24.

Clooney

George Clooney did not say if he prefers Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, choosing instead to discuss his recent film, Best Picture nominee Michael Clayton.

"Our film is the best it can be in that genre," he says of its Oscar chances, "but there's a ceiling on that genre."

Instead, Clooney predicts that No Country for Old Men will take the top prize, and its directors Joel and Ethan Coen will nab the Best Director trophy. He also gives a nod to Javier Bardem as Best Supporting Actor.

"If [Michael Clayton] has a shot at anything, it's Best Supporting Actress with Tilda Swinton," he says - although George Clooney officially made Amy Ryan, from Gone Baby Gone, his pick in that category.

The actor was also impressed by La Vie En Rose's Marion Cotillard.

"She does an old person trying to be young, instead of what everyone does - a young person trying to be old," he says. "It's a stunning performance."
