From handsome also-ran to American Idol champion.

Kris Allen completed an incredible journey this week by being named the eighth-ever winner of the most popular show on television.

Overlooked when the competition began - at the outset, Simon Cowell even suggested that Allen should keep his marriage a secret because he would only advance based on his looks - Allen shed his underdog label and overcame Adam Lambert in a tightly-contested finale.

What was Allen's reaction upon winning? He said: "Adam deserves this. I'm sorry." Class act (and we agree!).

Will Kris follow in the successful footsteps of past victors such as Carrie Underwood? Or the anonymous footsteps of champs such as Reuben Studdard?

Only time will tell. For now, let's just wish a hearty congratulations to one of the most unexpected winners in show history!

True Idols

Forget Jon & Kate Plus 8.

The story of Jon & Kate Plus 8, in Addition to One Lover and Two Disloyal Brothers is far more interesting.

A couple weeks after he accused sister Deanna Hummel of nailing reality TV star Jon Gosselin, Jason Hummel certainly isn't backing off his story. In fact, he's reveling in it.

"I am not a liar," he told E! News earlier today. "The rumors are true. It feels good to let people know that I am not the liar."

It must. Clearing up one's public perception - which never would have existed in the first place if Jason hadn't gone on record about the affair - is far more pressing than remaining loyal to one's sister.

In the video below, Jason adds that he thinks Jon and Deanna will continue to see one another; Jon may have tried to bribe him with Philles tickets; and the couple would defy Bristol Palin's anti-sex advice "at least three times per week."

Meanwhile, Deanna's OTHER brother, John, is also confirming his sister's affair.

We actually wouldn't mind seeing Kara DioGuardi nude.

Sorry, did we write that out loud?

Kara Fashion

The thought occurred to us because the American Idol judge is the latest pseudo celebrity to appear in an ad for PETA. Unlike most other animal-loving stars (from Audrina Patridge to Holly Madison), however, DioGuardi is fully clothed on her poster.

She's also advocating a far simpler cause than vegetarianism or anti-fur wearing: be nice to your dog.

Kara DioGuardi loves dogs almost as much as everyone hates the song she co-wrote for this season's American Idol champion.

Chris Brown is gonna be so jealous, he's gonna wanna hit something.

The Barbados beauty showed up with a group of friends Monday at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge on West 42nd Street, but spent most of the night locking lips with a Canadian former child actor-turned-rapper: Aubrey "Drake" Graham.

Aubrey Graham, or just Drake to his Canadian rap fans, is perhaps best known for playing Jimmy Brooks on DeGrassi: The Next Generation.

He is supposedly planning to release his debut album in 2009. Wonder if he can get the "Umbrella" starlet to make a cameo appearance ...

“They were really cute together,” said their source, noting they left around midnight. "She was drinking whiskey and apple juice and making out with him all night."

Guess Rihanna's mohawk wasn't a turnoff for this young stud!

The star, who's also been spending time in town with her new BFF Katy Perry, left with Drake at about midnight. Hey, she's just living her life - and living it up!

Way to go, girl! Drake seems like a hot catch.

For those that are still celebrating the death of Marissa on The OC, Mischa Barton is out for revenge.

The mediocre, incredibly thin actress is returning to the small screen this fall. She'll star on The Beautiful Life, a new CW series airing on Wednesday nights and produced by Ashton Kutcher.

The drama focuses on series of male and female models, all of whom share an apartment in New York City. It's like a reality show come to scripted life!

Click on the following photos of Barton from the pilot episode:

The Beautiful Life also marks the television show debut of Corbin Bleu. The High School Musical actor is featured in the full cast photo below:

** Update: We've been told the pics above are actually of actress Sara Paxton, NOT Mischa Barton. Our bad. Still, everything else is true: Barton and Bleu will be starring in this new series.

If she acts half as well as she sings ... this show is gonna eat royal ass!

The zenith of uselessness up until now, Ashlee Simpson is ready to test her acting chops as a cast member in the upcoming remake of Melrose Place on the CW.

Pete n' Ash

Just kidding ... mostly. When your foremost TV moment was being booed after she couldn't even lip-synch effectively on SNL, there's nowhere to go but up.

In all seriousness, the show looks pretty good. Here is your first look at the cast of the new Melrose Place, scheduled to debut this fall on The CW network ...

MELROSE PLACE RELOADED: (left to right) Stephanie Jacobsen, Colin Egglesfield, Ashlee Simpson, Shaun Sipos, Katie Cassidy, Michael Rady, and Jessica Lucas.

We're going to assume, based on this photo and the general unreliability of the tabloid that reported it, that Pete Wentz did not get Ashlee Simpson pregnant again.

Then again, no word on when this was taken. There's also a chance it's photoshopped, and that Ashlee will be filmed neck-up all season, a la Kelly Rutherford.

We just hope Ash's character, Violet, will get a lot of really bad plastic surgery at some point in the first season. Then she won't even have to worry about trying to act!

Looks like something even more exciting than Robert Pattinson photos or Hayden Panettiere bikini pics may have emerged this week in Cannes:

A possible engagement between Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom!

There's something new adorning the Aussie supermodel's left ring finger – and it looks remarkably like an engagement ring, according to photos.

Could her longtime lover, Orlando Bloom, have proposed at last?

Last November, Kerr's rep vehemently denied news reports that Kerr was engaged to the Pirates of the Caribbean star. This time? No denial.

No confirmation, either. Simply no comment.

"I am aware of the images. However, I am not in position to comment," her rep, Carlii Lyon, told People. Bloom's rep has not been reached for comment.

What is known: Miranda Kerr, 26, did fly into Cannes to be with Bloom, 32, for one night before turning around and going right back to New York for work - prompting some observers to wonder if a proposal took place in the South of France.

Either way, they sure make a hot pair and will surely make great spouses one day. Click to enlarge more Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr photos ...

Lisa Rinna has spent a lifetime getting fake parts placed on her body.

Now, the actress is trying to make some real cash money off those procedures.

Rinna has released "Rinnavation." While we can appreciate the pun of a title, we can't fathom why anyone would spend one cent to read about someone getting lots of plastic sugery.

Then again, we couldn't fathom why anyone would wanna see Rinna nude in Playboy, either, but that magazine paid her a lot to don her birthday suit.

With Manny Ramirez suspended after testing positive for a banned substance, the Los Angeles Dodgers recalled prospect Whitney Port, 24, from AAA Hollywood.

Just kidding. But The City star did throw out the first pitch last night.

Here's Whitney getting the L.A. Dodgers-N.Y. Mets game underway. Look at that form! The former intramural softball player doesn't even throw like a girl ...

Whitney Port threw out the first pitch ... to her brother, Ryan!

Of the baseball experience, The Hills alum writes on her official site:

"What an exciting day!!! I just got home from the Dodgers game after throwing out the first pitch (to my brother Ryan, who took on the role of catcher).

We got there at 4:30 and we were escorted right out to the field. Some of the players even came up to me to welcome me... they were all so sweet.

It was so cool because I've been a Dodgers fan my whole life so it was really special to be there with my entire family. My little sister Jade, my brother Ryan, my mom, my dad and my grandfather all were there to support me.

All in all I'm pretty proud of myself... for someone who hasn't played in quite a few years I think I did pretty well ;)"

Cute staff, for sure! Click to enlarge lots more photos of Whitney Port - a.k.a. Whittie P. - and her brother Ryan at the game last night ...

The mother of Carrie Prejean might be a lesbian.

Valerie Vetrano tells Star magazine that she and Prejean's mother, Francine Coppola, were involved in a relationship that lasted until the very night Carrie finished second in the Miss USA contest.

Trump vs. Prejean

"Francine and I dated," Vetrano said, while another source confirmed the affair, saying it never had a chance, due to Coppola's hesitance to be open with her family:

"Francine explained how she was a Christian and that her loved ones would never accept her if she were gay."

Fortunately for the National Organization of Marriage, Carrie Prejean has not caught gay from her mother.

Reportedly, Carrie had no idea about her mother's sexual orientation, but the friend quoted above thinks her reaction to gay marriage might be different if Prejean's mom had been honest.

"Valerie feels that if Francine had just been open about her sexuality with her family, Carrie would have a better understanding of what gay people have to go through. They just want equal rights.”
