The Hollywood Gossip's recap of The Bachelor is a rundown of our favorite (and least favorite) moments, with points awarded or deducted as we see fit. Last night, the four women took Jason to their hometowns. Let's get to it ...

Plus 5 for ABC subtly plugging Dancing with the Stars via Jillian Harris' mom's take on relationships: "Life is a dance and you learn as you go."

Minus 4 for Jillian literally mixing her cliches: "I literally catapulted off the couch. It was like a total cherry on the top of a perfect day."

In Michigan, Molly Malaney's dad offered her the best Guns n' Roses-themed advice of the evening: don't cry. Simple, yet profound. Plus 11. (Jillian's mom blew a chance to warn her about getting caught in November Rain... again.)

The Malaney hat box was great, too, leaving both Jason and Molly momentarily mortified. Plus 4. And Plus 3 more for Molly's adorable argyle sweater!

Minus 4 for mimosas in a Thermos. It's just weird, Naomi. But not as much as referring to Jason Mesnick as her "potential future husband" three times in 90 seconds.

Hector: There's just one God. Joanne: There are multiple lifetimes. Mmm. Minus 12 because this awkwardness sealed Naomi's fate long before the Rose Ceremony.

  • Jason and Jillian on The Bachelor
  • Jason and Melissa on The Bachelor

Canada's Jillian Harris was the big winner of the night, while Jason Mesnick received a bit of a surprise when Melissa Rycroft said her parents would not be participating.

A surprising Plus 13 for Melissa Rycroft's parents declining to participate on the show. No offense to Melissa for her decision to go on The Bachelor - thank goodness she did! - but you have to admire her folks' stance in a way.

Minus 5 at the same time, though, because they could support their daughter a little. They didn't even go to games when she was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader? Her surprisingly low self-esteem for a girl so gorgeous makes sense now.

Plus 6 for Jason Mesnick keeping Melissa around in spite of this setback. Besides, her family's no-show still leaves them light years ahead of Naomi's family. Let's hear it for victory by omission! You wonder if Melissa Rycroft heard how Naomi's date went, decided she already had a rose in the bag and told her parents not to bother.

Obligatory Plus 3 for Chris Harrison and his dashing good looks.

A brief discussion of next week's previews: New Zealand? Really? Jealous. Plus 4. OMG, is there some doubt about Jason and Molly's chemistry? Minus 7. Okay, did Melissa not tell her folks she was even going on the show? Minus 2. Finally, re: DeAnna Pappas' return - if we're supposed to believe what we saw (and it's not ABC having a field day with us), DeAnna tells Jason she made a mistake - and he still has a chance with her?! Minus 13, because we don't buy it ... but totally Plus 35 because that would be, as Chris Harrison's voiceover says, "the most shocking twist in Bachelor history."

TOTAL: +36! A quick list of who's in and out on The Bachelor...

Roses received at ceremony: Molly, Melissa, Jillian.

Given the Heave-Ho By Jason Mesnick: Naomi.

Hugh Hefner might have the Shannon Twins and Crystal Harris, but his ex-girlfriends aren't sitting at home, pining over wrinkles lost.

A day after Bridget Marquardt was photographed leaving a Grammy Awards party with Nicholas Carpenter, the former Playmate has confirmed her relationship with the small-time movie director.

"He's funny and sincere and really sweet," Marquardt said to E! of Marsi Tomei's ex-boyfriend. "He's so cute!"

Marquardt met Carpenter after he directed Holly Madison in the random, indie horror flick The Telling. They look very happy together, don't they?

Law enforcement sources are getting more specific regarding Sunday night's Chris Brown arrest - and cops who photographed Rihanna's injuries say they are "horrific."

The photos show major contusions on both sides of the singer's face - there is serious swelling and bruising. Her lip is split and her nose bloody.

Elegant Rihanna

Moreover, there are bite marks on one of her arms and on several fingers.

According to reports, Rihanna claims Chris Brown struck her with his fists and that's what did the damage. There was no object used in the alleged attack.

Rihanna refused treatment at the scene, but before she left cops took photos. According to reports, the photos alone are "devastating proof of abuse."

Also, it was not Rihanna who personally called 911. Someone in the area heard her screams during the alleged assault and placed the urgent call for help.

According to a source close to the investigation, Chris Brown "fled on foot" from the scene following the disturbing attack. Two officers from the LAPD found Rihanna in Brown's rented silver Lamborghini "beaten really badly and hysterical."

With her big Circus tour officially good to go and her life seemingly back on track, Britney Spears is welcoming an old friend back into the fold.

Former assistant Felicia Culotta, who most recently worked for The Jonas Brothers, has returned to Team Britney, just in time for the Circus tour.

"Britney has always held a special place in my heart, and over the course of the last year I have seen her work harder than she ever has in her entire life," Felicia Culotta said in a statement last night on Britney Spears' official site.

"Sadly, I am really going to miss the Jonas boys, but I felt I had to be a part of this exciting time in Britney's career. I love Britney and missed her dearly."

Britney Spears poses with then-husband Kevin Federline and then-assistant and BFF Felicia Culotta in front of a famous French landmark in this classic file photo.

One assumes Culotta has been sufficiently vetted by Spears' conservators, father Jamie Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who still have total control over the sort of company the artist keeps. And does for a living, and spends money on, etc.

Jamie Spears recently sought and was granted restraining orders against Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib, Britney's most infamous former hangers-on.

This may be heresy to some, but Nolan Gerard Funk is setting his sights high.

The young actor is being promoted as the next Zac Efron. He'll star in next week's Nickelodeon original movie Spectacular!

Photo of Zac

Will High School Musical fans jump aboard the bandwagon of this new franchise, now that Efron and company have moved on? Funk, a Vancouver native that is fluent in French and filmed a music video last year alongside Miranda Cosgrove, leads the film's cast. He plays Nikko.

Spectacular! premieres on Monday night, February 16.

For now, compare the young actors below and then respond to our poll question:

Who is studlier: Nolan Gerard Funk or Zac Efron?

Nick Lachey definitely got out at the right time.

The former 98 degrees and current solo singer used to star with his wife on the MTV series Newlyweds. Then they split up and she became tortured by food, while he hooked up with a gorgeous new girlfriend and avoided negative PR.

Now, he's even going to appear on One Tree Hill this season!

According to TV Fanatic, Nick will be playing a singer, former reality star and former boy band member who is dating Vanessa Minnillo. Yes, himself.

In the OTH story line, a record label wants to buy one of Haley's (Bethany Joy Galeotti) songs that she wrote for Nick Lachey's new album, but she's hesitant to sell any of her music, so Nick will appear in person to make the case.

The One Tree Hill quotes that follow? Sure to be cheesy.

In real life, Nick has a new album coming out this spring called Coming Up for Air, which includes a duet he recorded with American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.

Kate Hudson and Owen Wilson are back together.

Sources say the roller coaster relationship is on its way up again, following a party the actress threw a party at her house in Pacific Palisades on January 30.

Matthew Bellamy and Kate Hudson

“Everyone was totally shocked to see Kate and Owen lying on the floor together,” a guest at the shindig told X17. “They were hugging and kissing all night. [The next day at Owen's house in Malibu,] they spent the afternoon lying out by the pool.”

Since her break up with the occasionally funny actor, Hudson has been linked to Lance Armstrong, Dax Shepard and professional golfer Adam Scott.

But she evidently missed Wilson, as a source told People Magazine "they're back together," adding that the couple spent this weekend together at Wilson's house, accompanied by Hudson's son Ryder.

How does he do it?

How can one man be arrested SO many times? We have often asked these questions about the incomparable DMX because, well... if one gets busted for serious crimes enough times, eventually you will be placed in some sort of jail.

Well, that's where he is right now - and that still hasn't stopped the rapper from going berzerk and incurring the wrath of the law enforcement community.

DMX is officially on "lockdown status" in Arizona's Tent City Jail after pulling one of the best moves an inmate can make - threatening to fight the guards.

Yet Another DMX Mug Shot

After he failed to report for his medication, officials say the rapper began cussing at officers and threatened to "assault somebody to get some respect."

DMX was immediately thrown into lockdown, separated from the other inmates and punished with a "special diet that is a form of bread and water."

It all started when he refused to report for work, telling officers, "I already have a job and don't need this s***." Hard to argue with that sound logic.

Sounds like he's finally reforming. Click to enlarge more booking photos of DMX (our career celebrity mug shots leader), past and present ...

Kim Kardashian kan't sing.

Thanks to Dancing with the Stars, we also learned this reality TV star kan't dance.

Still, Kim managed to krash the red carpet at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, as she was hired by E! to co-host its pre-event special.

Here are shots of a tight-bunned Kardashian at work:

If at first you don't apologize successfully, try, try again.

Following a lame apology that essentially blamed others for misinterpreting a photo of her and her friends possibly mocking Asians, Miley Cyrus has taken to her official website again.

Totally Together

Here's the singer's second attempt at putting racist rumors to rest:

"I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone. I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometimes my actions can be unintentionally hurtful. I know everything is a part of GOD’s ultimate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woman he aspires me to be."

Have you seen the supposedly racist picture in question? Do you think Cyrus made a mistake posing for it? Write in. Let us know!
