Remember Katie Rees?

The former Miss Nevada 2007 was stripped of her crown when a series of racy photos of her were leaked soon after the coronation.

Now, following the announcement that Carrie Prejean won't receive the same punishment after her set of topless pics were released, Rees is speaking out. She told E! News the development is a "huge double standard."

"Semi-nude photos are semi-nude photos," Rees said, comparing the topless lingerie pics of Prejean with her own images (linked to above).

In December 2006, however, Miss Universe owner Donald Trump - the same man that said this is the "21st century" and the pics of Prejean were mostly "lovely" - deemed Rees' photos inappropriate and stripped Katie of her crown.

But what about the contracts both Rees and Prejean signed? Each stated that contestants must own up to any history of naked or semi-naked photographs.

Lost amidst Prejean's gay marriage stance is the simple fact that she violated her contract. What's the point of making such documents if there's no incentive to adhere to them?

"I don't know why I am the only one who was punished for their behavior," Rees said. "I was only 19 when those photos were taken of me, and it was me in my personal life, far before I was crowned Miss Nevada. Carrie actually posed for these professional semi-nude photos. I think that's worse."

You're totally right, Katie. But Prejean cited the Bible, said God spoke to her and got narrow-minded Christians on her side. See where you went wrong now?

On the campaign trail, Sarah Palin chided Barack Obama for writing two books about his relatively young life while not passing any worthwhile legislation.

Now the former Republican V.P. candidate is ready to follow suit!

Palin will publish a memoir with HarperCollins that will come out in Spring 2010 - the same time she becomes eligible for reelection as Alaska's governor.

The Alaska governor's book, as yet untitled, will cover her many career accomplishments some of the controversies surrounding herself and her family.

The memoir will span her Alaskan childhood through last year's campaign and beyond, and will likely cover her political beliefs and family life.

The pregnancy of her teen daughter Bristol Palin, who gave birth in December, will surely be included. Whether or not Levi Johnston tapped that while Sarah slept in the next room will probably remain shrouded in mystery, however.

"In fairness to my family, this is going be a good opportunity for me to cash in on them, too, because there have been so many misperceptions out there about who we are and what we believe in," Palin said in a statement. 

Other possible topics that Palin's ghostwriter of choice might cover:

  • Emotional family bonding sessions on the front porch, while sipping on wolf blood and enjoying the view of Russia
  • Her incredible wedding night sex with Todd Palin, after they waited to do it until they were married, of course
  • Patented techniques for different kinds of winks
  • The Palin-Carrie Prejean ticket strategies for 2012

Nadya Suleman is not too proud to accept handouts.

In fact, the fertile one is all for it. She's accepted donations for her newborns, sold family photos, applied for food stamps, enlisted free nannies she later fired for being spies and sponged off taxpayers in countless other ways.

Octomom From Behind

But she's drawing the line at plastic surgery. But only because she doesn't feel she needs it - otherwise, what's another $20,000 for the public to pick up?

"I would never even accept a tummy tuck even if it were offered because I don't need it," Octomom nobly told Radar Online. "I'm actually shocked myself at my own body ... my goal is to do things as naturally as possible."

Except for being artificially inseminated with 14 frickin' kids, that is.

Although Octomom says she's had "absolutely no time to do anything yet," she is convinced that she'll eventually get back into top shape on her own.

"I would like to join a gym," she says without explanation of how she would pay for the membership (or a nanny to watch her kids) on her $0 salary.

"My friends nicknamed me 'Rubberband' because after every [child] I had, I was back to a size 2 in a month. Now, it's three months, and I'm not a 2 yet. I'm a 5 or 6, but I'll get there. I like to be small because I have extraordinary energy."

Wait ... Nadya Suleman has friends?

While she has no plans to go under the knife, Suleman did add without irony that she is feeling compelled to provide for her children.

"What's going on now is that I feel obligated - almost compelled - to earn a living to take care of my kids," she says.

By whoring them out on a reality show, natch.

Adam Lambert who?!?

Okay, Kris Allen's incredible performance of "Heartless" didn't make us forget about this season's American Idol favorite, but it did cause us to single out a different contestant than usual as our favorite this week.

Following a rendition of One Republic’s “Apologize” that Kara and Randy didn't love (even though they chose it for him), Kris blew the panel away with his take on Kanye West's single.

Jackson thought Allen's version was better than the original, DioGuardi called it “bold, brave, fearless" and Simon said:  “I had written you out [out of the competition]. That, however, has all changed.”

Who is your favorite finalist? Click on each photo for a closer look at each.

While Kris earned the top performance of the night, Lambert and Danny Gokey didn't disappoint. Here's a rundown of their evening:

- Cowell got special permission for Lambert to sing U2’s “One." As you'd expect, Adam knocked it out of the park, alternating from eerily quiet to impressively loud. Simon said it was “brilliant,” while Paula pretty much crowned him the season’s winner.

Up next? Aerosmith’s “Cryin,” a perfect choice. Kara summed it up simply: “We’ll see you at the finals." Listen to this rendition NOW.

- We didn't love Paula assignment of the Terence Trent D’Arby hit “Dance Little Sister" for Gokey. Neither did the judges, as it didn't receive rave reviews.

But Danny’s own selection of Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful” earned him high praise from Simon. He referred to the performance as “a vocal master class.”

It may have come a week later than many fans were hoping, but Ty Murray was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars last night.

And the rodeo stalwart seemed psyched about it.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Murray said after the show, laughing. “I don’t have to learn any more dances.”

Of course, this doesn't mean Jewel's husband regrets trading in his chaps for sequins.

“The whole reason I did this show is because it was nice for cowboys to be represented in something so pop culture, and this show did in spades,” Murray said. “For me to be able to do this is a fantastic opportunity. You don’t realize how big something like this is until you’re on a show that 25 million people watch.”

This leaves a trio of celebs remaining to compete in the finals next week. Click on a shot of each of them performing during the semifinals below:

  • Off to the Finale

Who do you think will win?

Katy Perry is ready to walk down the aisle. With someone.

"I'd like to get married if I find that 'one' everyone talks about," she tells the June issue of UK Cosmopolitan. "I'm not in a rush, but last night I was thinking, 'Is it wrong for me to want to marry soon and have that feeling?'"

Katy Perry on Raising Hope

"And I wonder when that person is going to present himself to me. To me, marriage isn't about bank accounts and houses; it's about finding the one you can hitch your hip to and build on each other's strengths," she goes on.

The singer, who split from Gym Class Heroes' Travis McCoy last January, but supposedly got back together with him recently, tells Cosmo she's currently single.

She adds that she doesn't like it that way.

"I don't like being single, no. I live a fantastic life, but at the end of the day all I want to do is pick up my phone and share it with someone," she says.

"The other day I'd sold a million records in the U.S. and I didn't have anyone to tell. It was actually a really lonely moment."

Being famous has made it harder to find romance as well.

"If I go out to dinner with a guy, people automatically think we're dating," Katy Perry added. "And then when you do start dating, it becomes a race to the altar. I'm like, 'Come on, can't we just be boyfriend and girlfriend?'"

Her ideal guy?

"Firstly, he has to be stronger than I am mentally. He can't be jealous because I'm a very touchy-feely person. And he'd need to be able to tell me both yes and no. I'll probably end up with someone who's a bit older, a few steps ahead of me."

Wow.

We'll publish a detailed recap of the final three performance show on American Idol tomorrow, but we couldn't wait another second to shower praise on one of tonight's performances.

And it wasn't given by Adam Lambert for a change!

Kris Allen delivered the goods - and then some! - with an acoustic rendition of "Heartless." Sorry, Gokeheads. But next week's finale has to come down to Allen vs. Lambert.

Watch Allen's rendition of "Heartless" below and share your thoughts in the Comments section:

Earlier today, at a press conference announcing the confirmation of Carrie Prejean as Miss California, that pageant's co-director said there would be peace in the Middle East if we sent Donad Trump over there.

Keith Lewis may have been exagerrating, but The Donald does appear to have brokered talks between Shanna Moakler and Prejean.

An Awful Human Being

"Thanks to Donald Trump, we were able to have a meeting with Miss Prejean and her family alone for the first time since the pageant," Moakler, the co-executive director of the pageant, told People. "We were able to sit down and communicate and vent our frustrations. I am confident that she will stay true to the contract. I'm looking forward to returning to L.A. and starting fresh." 

Moakler added that the problem her and other officials had with Prejean was NOT related to her well-known beliefs on gay nuptials.

"Our issue was never about her opinions about same-sex marriage or the pictures. Our issue was with her complying with our agreement. When you sign the contract, we ask you to show us everything you are being offered. That wasn't happening. After the pageant, we lost control of our titleholder."

An understandable issue, no doubt.

Now, Moakler says, the air has been cleared and everyone can move forward. It's all she and Lewis ever wanted in the first place.

"She's part of our family. We care about her. But she's only 21 and we felt like she was being exploited. These people were not around for Miss USA, but they sure were afterward. They jumped on her bandwagon and tried to exploit her. We are trying to protect her."

LaLa Vazquez, or just "La La" to some, has had a distinguished career as a DJ, reality TV host, and playing herself in any movie that will have her.

In pro basketball circles, she is also known as the fiancee of Carmelo Anthony, star of the surging Denver Nuggets, which brings us to this article.

With her husband's team in Dallas taking on the Mavericks, LaLa was ejected after an unspecified "incident" with some old ladies sitting behind her.

Footage taken at the game last night showed LaLa cursing and getting rather hostile as security guards tried to escort her out of the stands ...

Today, LaLa released a statement claiming racial taunts and violent threats from Dallas fans started the altercation that became the talk of the game:

"Obviously playoff games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs / threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was completely unacceptable."

"The fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn't show the abuse that was taking place."

LaLa Vazquez, ironically, is a judge on VH1's Charm School.

The Mavs and Nuggets are set to face off again tomorrow night.

How many Keeping Up with the Kardashians viewers are aware of Bruce Jenner's career as a Gold Medal-winning Olympian?

The stepfather to Kim, Khloe and Kourtney was an American hero in 1976, as he conquered all competitors (including those evil Russians!) at the 1976 Games.

Ella Nolan Plastic Surgery

Now, sadly, Jenner has become the butt of celebrity gossip jokes.

According to Kim Kardashian, Jenner will actually undergo plastic sugery on this week's episode of the family reality show. Because the show is taped months ahead of time, this act has likely already taken place.

Still, we're interested to hear from readers: Do you think this public act is a good idea for someone of Jenner's status?
