Melissa Rycroft had her heart broken on The Bachelor, found love with a hometown guy in Tye Strickland, then went on to Dancing With the Stars fame.

With the birth of daughter Ava last month, the last piece of her unexpected “happily ever after” fairy tale fell into place. Words cannot describe it.

Police spokespeople have said Christina Aguilera was arrested yesterday for her own safety, not because she was engaged in any kind of criminal activity.

Still, this caveat does not mask the fact that the singer has a clear drinking problem (cops on the scene said she could not stand and did not know where she was). Friends tell TMZ they've been urging Christina to check into rehab for months now, even prior to her October split from Jordan Bratman.

Tennis champion Serena Williams has been hospitalized in L.A. with a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in the lungs. She suffered the health scare Monday.

Williams looked stunning at Sunday's Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party just hours before the unexpected condition surfaced.

It's clear who the American Idol judges favor at this point on season 10.

Immediately after his tremendous rendition of "A House is Not a Home," Jacob Lusk was told he was placed on the show via "divine intervention" (Steven Tyler) and that he was clearly the next Luther Vandross (Jennifer Lopez).

Has Lindsay Lohan agreed strip down buck naked for a full-frontal photo spread in a "sex book" with James Franco of all people? That's the rumor going around.

A rumor LiLo flatly denies, calling the whole idea "gross."

The top 12 men got the semifinal round of American Idol off the a VERY strong start last night. Diverse and talented, the group made it a pleasure to live blog the 90 minute show.

While we'd accept arguments on behalf of Casey Abrams, Jacob Lusk or Paul McDonald as best of the night, our vote goes to James Durbin. A rocker whose confidence, range and overall personal is reminiscent of Adam Lambert, Durbin was nothing if not original.

Every Charlie Sheen interview and quote is more hilarious than the previous one, until we're forced to remember: the guy is a father of five. He's somehow been the primary parent of two-year old twins during the last few weeks of partying and ranting.

But that's no longer the case. Hours after Brooke Mueller successfully filed a restraining order against her ex-husband, authorities arrived at Sheen's house last night and took little Bob and Max into custody.

Charlie Sheen may be granting time to every media outlet in the country (Chuck, call us!), but there's one person the crazed actor won't be speaking to:

Brooke Mueller. She has been granted a restraining order, TMZ reports. Los Angeles Superior Court has banned the star from going within 100 yards away of his ex-wife. He also cannot have any contact with her.
