When Hayden Panettiere isn't being immature and classless at charity functions, filming scenes for her mediocre TV show or sucking face with Jesse McCartney outside clubs, she's still fighting for the cause that matters most to her.

That would be her fight to save the whales.

For Hayden, it's a fight that's never-ending.

"A few months ago I announced a goal of getting 1,000,000 signatures for our petition to stop all commercial and lethal scientific research whaling in time for the June 2009 meeting of the International Whaling Commission," the Heroes star writes.

"So far, we’ve done great and gotten over 90,000 signatures but with just a couple of months left, we really need to take this to the next level to reach our goal."

That's what supermodels do, so this isn't really news.

Still, we're not sure what's more incredible, Miranda Kerr photos like these new swimsuit shots, or the fact that Jay Lyon from The City once hit that.

Ponder that, and despite how it might upset you (or Whitney Port), try not to let it detract from your enjoyment of the Miranda Kerr pictures below ...

Miranda Kerr: Hot

The Australian supermodel is the first Australian to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel and has been in the Victoria’s Secret Runway Show for three years now.

Well done on that, Miranda. Click to enlarge more pictures of the current Orlando Bloom squeeze modeling various swimsuits for the enjoyment of all below ...

Their acrimonious divorce lasted nearly half as long as their marriage, but Coley Laffoon must be psyched. After all, a $515,000 cash settlement will buy him a heck of a lot of online poker games, lap dances, porn and other things he craves.

On Wednesday, Anne Heche's two-year divorce battle with Laffoon came to an end, with Heche paying the man a settlement much bigger than he deserves.

"Anne is relieved this case is over, and is looking forward to getting on with her life and career," her attorney, Daniel Jaffe, told People magazine.

According to the Los Angeles Superior Court documents:

  • The pair will share 50-50 physical and legal custody of son, Homer, 7.
  • Anne Heche agreed to pay Laffoon a $515,000 lump sum cash payment. He'll also get half of all their community property, including more than $700,000 worth of stocks and other assets.
  • Anne Heche keeps her multimillion-dollar home in Vancouver, B.C.
  • Coley Laffoon waived his right to claim any spousal support.

According to reports, Chris Brown is looking to cop a plea, but only to a misdemeanor and with no jail time, in the assault and criminal treats case against him.

TMZ reports that Brown's people have consulted with outside legal advisors - including law school professors - who have opined that Rihanna's own aggressiveness in the February 8 incident takes it out of the felony category.

Sources say that in fact, Rihanna was the first one to strike - slapping and striking Chris Brown "numerous times" while he was driving his rented sports car, after seeing the "booty call text message" he got from another woman.

Rihanna was fighting Brown as he punched, choked and threatened her. Much of this is even reflected in the police report based on what Rihanna told authorities.

As a result, some feel this is not a case that demands a felony plea.

Can Chris Brown possibly escape with no jail time?

On the flip side, there are plenty of cases in which the woman engages the man in a physical altercation but the jury convicts the male anyway, as it represents an unfair fight and the man could have simply walked away.

Brown did walk away - but only after beating her nearly unconscious.

The infamous photo of battered Rihanna - one less graphic than some which haven't been seen by the public, police say - proves Brown's superior strength.

Add to that the fact that Brown had no significant injuries and it presents problems for him. Perhaps even worse for Brown, sources tell TMZ Rihanna told cops he had beaten her before and his violent streak had been escalating.

Oh, according to the search warrant papers, Brown sent a text message to Rihanna's assistant in which he apologized for what did and said he was getting help.

That could be admissible and damaging in court - as a legal admission.

Hayden Panettiere, a.k.a. the new Paris Hilton protege, may want to take a cue from her slutty new BFF. For all her flaws, the ho-tel heiress is the master at using celebrity gossip media to her advantage, not blowing her top.

By contrast, Hayden reportedly lost her cool in Hawaii this weekend.

The 19-year-old actress - who recently split with her co-star, Milo Ventimiglia, because of her immaturity, her club-going ways and a pregnancy scare - was acting testy from the instant she arrived on on the red carpet at a fundraiser held to benefit the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific Foundation in Honolulu.

"Back up!" she yelled at celebrity new photographers. A female television reporter then touched her shoulder and asked, "May we talk with you, Hayden?"

Miffed, Panettiere jerked her head around and screamed, "Don't you ever touch me!" She then icily asked a handler, "Oh, am I supposed to do interviews?"

Smokin' Hayden

SAVE THE CHEERLEADER (FROM LUNG CANCER): Hayden Panettiere apparently smokes now, too. Good habit to pick up, H. It's healthy and sets a great example!

Approaching celebrity news and traditional media outlets, Hayden went off again, yelling, "You all make my life miserable" and refusing to answer questions.

After the red carpet, the Heroes star got her much-desired privacy, hanging out in a private cabana with Justin Long and his brother. She then moved to a private dining room, where she and Long sat and chatted for over an hour.

Despite only having a few days to rehearse, Melissa Rycroft should have no problem on Dancing With the Stars, says her ex-fiance Jason Mesnick.

"I am so excited for Melissa," The Bachelor star tells Extra. "I know she's danced her whole life, and must be excited. I hope and think she will win it all."

Meanwhile, on Monday's Bonnie Hunt Show, Mesnick continued his national apology tour after dumping Rycroft on the "After the Final Rose" special.

"I want to apologize to you and to the audience and to anybody who is watching because I did something obviously that I am not very proud of and that is talking to [Melissa Rycroft] in front of the camera," the single dad admits.

"It's something that I regret and I've thought about every day since it happened ... the producers really wanted me to do it that way, but it was my decision, I take full responsibility for my actions and I apologize most of all to Melissa," he says.

Hot Bachelor Make Out Scene!

The passion between Jason and Melissa was palpable on The Bachelor. But he says he knew Rycroft wasn't the right girl for him soon after the show ended.

"We had spent a bunch of weekends together and spent a week together at Christmas and all of a sudden ... we had so many silences and nothing to talk about," he says. "I think we both knew there was something missing."

Molly Malaney, the show's runner-up who is now dating Mesnick, admits she was iffy about dating him after seeing how he treated Melissa Rycroft.

"I needed to understand what happened with Melissa and him," said the 24-year-old department store buyer and Grand Rapids, Mich., native.

"I wanted to make sure that he wasn't running back to me just because it didn't work out with Melissa," added Malaney, who isn't planning on getting married or engaged to Mesnick yet, but says she's very happy with her man.

Like Jason, we can't wait to watch Melissa Rycroft dance tonight!

Britney Spears isn't the only singer skanking it up on a Florida stage.

Granted, Britney was grinding a pole and writhing around in full stripper attire, whereas Jessica Simpson is merely wearing daisy dukes. So it probably isn't fair to call the latter skanky. Still, sex sells bad music. Just saying.

Jessica Simpson squeezed her supposedly ballooning frame into short shorts and a tight top while performing at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida.

Simpson's outfit looked just like what she sported in The Dukes of Hazzard, and for some fans, the pose below was probably too much excitement to contain ...

Jessica Simpson Performs

Her weight has been a talking point since she was photographed performing in a pair of unflattering mom jeans in Florida earlier this year. But the Jessica Simpson pictures we have seen lately certainly don't make her look fat.

No photoshopping can make her sing better, unfortunately, but lucky for you, these photos don't come with audio. Click to enlarge these pics below ...

Will Melissa Rycroft actually participate on season eight of Dancing with the Stars?

All indications point to this scorned Bachelor suitor taking the place of an injured Nancy O'Dell on the series, though fans won't know for certain unless they tune in tonight (and visit our site tomorrow for a full recap, of course!).

We can report that the show's cameras did not catch Rycroft rehearsing for the competition. This may simply mean producers wish to keep her appearance as a surprise.

It's no surprise that Julianne Hough is paired with real-life boyfriend Chuck Wicks, though, as evidenced by the shot of the pair at a recent practice session:

Awwww! This may be adorable to some, but it's competitive fodder for Wicks and Hough's fellow dancers.

No offense to Amy Winehouse, but the United States of America is already in the throes of an economic crisis. The last thing we need now is undue strain on our health care system and infrastructure compounding matters.

The troubled singer hit a hurdle in her hopes for a musical comeback, being forced forced to cancel her appearance next month at California's Coachella Music Festival because of the assault charges she currently faces in London.

Denying that she was actually denied access to the U.S., her rep Chris Goodman does confirm to celeb news sources that "She cannot go because of current legal issues."

In a piece of good news, Amy Winehouse has, however, been confirmed as a major act at a 50th birthday celebration of her British record label, Island, on May 31.

There's no way she'll actually show, but way to go, A-Dubs!

Health Personified

It is believed that Winehouse, who has been settling into her new home after a lengthy Caribbean vacation, had begun the process of getting a visa for Coachella but had not applied formally yet. Her London court date is March 17.

When she was formally charged last week, her management assumed that her legal case would not "be sorted out in time" for her to make the music festival.

Not the case.

This is the second time the estranged wife of Blake Fielder-Civil (who's said to be banging Francesca Morralee) has failed to appear live because of visa woes.

She didn't attend the 2008 Grammy Awards because of logistical issues, and ended up performing from London via satellite as she netted five awards.
