As we prepare for the third week of American Idol auditions, it seems like a good time to break out our first Power Poll of the season.

With four solid episodes under our belt, here's how The Hollywood Gossip staff ranks this year's early contenders:

1) Kristy Lee Cook: Gorgeous Oregonian's ''Amazing Grace'' was highlight of the opening two weeks - but will fans revolt against her one-time record deal with Arista Nashville?

2) Michael Johns: His former band once had a deal with Madonna's music label, but a professional background is par for this year's American Idol course. The Aussie made a strong impression with a tight T-shirt, toned biceps, and a solid Otis Redding cover.

3) David Archuleta: Former Star Search winner has the sympathy vote locked up: he struggled with a paralyzed vocal chord as a child. This year's Sanjaya... with talent?

4) Carly Smithson: Another American Idol hopeful with prior experience â€" she crashed and burned in her major-label debut as Carly Hennessy a few years back â€" this tattooed Irishwoman displayed great range on ''I'm Every Woman.''

5) Colton Swon: We liked his impressive take on Little Big Town's ''Boondocks'' and are extra excited about the rumor that he plays the guitar during the Hollywood round.

6) Kady Malloy: Simon Cowell dubbed her the best audition he'd seen during the opening week after she belted out ''Unchained Melody." We loved her impression of Britney Spears. Singing, that is. Not being insane.

7) Alaina Whitaker: Confident (said Carrie Underwood looks like her!) and with a powerful voice for a 16-year old.

Reggie Bush looks psyched to be hanging out with Jennifer Lopez Kim Kardashian in this photo, doesn't he?

The professional football player and professional reality TV star were spotted looking less than chummy during a recent walk together. Bush even appears to be staring into the distance with a fed up expression on his face.

Might he be dreaming of Tom Brady's girlfriend, Gisele Bundchen? Or Tony Romo's main squeeze, Jessica Simpson? Or, perhaps, Reggie is simply trying to figure out the following question:

Which is bigger, Kim's earrings or Kim's breasts?

Kimmy from the Block: Kim Kardashian wants to be known as K. Lo from now on.

Britney Spears' parents - and the LAPD - rushed to the singer's home Monday evening as she had a huge bust-up with her friend and manager, Sam Lutfi.

The evening's events began around 6 p.m. when Britney was in tears after an argument with Lutfi. Britney then stormed out of Sam's car, outside the gates to her Summit Circle home, and sat on the side of the road sobbing.

Hot, Caged Animal

According to TMZ, Britney's paparazzi beau, Adnan Ghalib, got a phone call from a hysterical Britney at that moment, pleading with him, "Baby, can you come pick me up?" Adnan told her that he would be right over.

Britney then got into the car of another photographer named Felipe (we think it must be Filipi Teixeira), and drove inside the gates of her home. It was then that Adnan tried unsuccessfully to gain entry into her gated community.

When Adnan arrived, however, he was told in no uncertain terms that he was not allowed to enter the gates to Britney's estate - the bodyguards were under strict orders from Sam Lutfi not to let Ghalib inside.

As she wept openly outside, sources say Adnan Ghalib tried calling each of Britney Spears' six cell phones and the house phone, but she did not answer.

At 9:07 p.m., Britney's father, Jamie Spears, arrived at the Summit home. After sitting outside the gates for a few minutes, he finally went inside the compound. Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, arrived soon after.

Around 9:30 p.m., Britney Spears left her home, alone. She was later seen driving around Los Angeles with Adnan by her side. Shortly after 11 p.m., Britney and Adnan returned to her home. Take that, Sam!

The LAPD were called to the scene for a person trying to get access to the grounds without permission, or to contain the paparazzi crush that was trying to shoot the fight, depending on what account you read.

Either way, George Clooney is not going to be happy.

While Tom Brady gets all the attention, the New York Giants QB is keeping things low key. Super Bowl-bound Eli Manning and super-cute fiancee Abby McGrew spent a quiet night out Saturday dining and drinking wine.

"They sat in the back corner, but everyone knew he was there," said sports agent Andrew Lowenthal to Eli's hometown New York Post.

Eli Manning, MVP!

"[Eli Manning] was very friendly to everyone who stopped by his table to wish him well and congratulate him but looked a little uncomfortable after she went to the bathroom, and he was left with everyone staring at him."

Dressed in a blazer, Manning stayed for three hours before walking out to applause from diners. "He waved and acknowledged everyone," he said.

Manning, Tom Brady and their respective teammates have arrived in Arizona for the Super Bowl, coming up this Sunday. Hopefully there are some good moments during today's Media Day that we will be able to bring you.

We interrupt our almost daily updates regarding Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens to bring you news on another High School Musical star and her boyfriend.

Sorry, Ashley Tisdale, for spending so much time on Zanessa instead of you and Jared Murillo. But, well, you have seen that couple, right? They're difficult to overtake when it comes to adorability.

We Heart Ashley

Of course, if you wanna release a set of naked pictures, it may help you grab a headline or six dozen. Just sayin.

Ashley Tisdale and Jared Murillo are cute and all. But they're no Zanessa.

Numerous sources are reporting that Gwen Stefani is 13 weeks pregnant with her second child. That's great news for her and husband Gavin Rossdale.

It's potentially bad news for the forthcoming baby, however, as he/she will have trouble competing with the sheer cuteness of brother Kingston. Nevertheless, a source said:

Gwen Stefani Image

"[Gwen and Gavin] found out at California's Cedars-Sinai hospital and couldn't wait to share the news with everyone."

Congratulations to Gwen! The rocker joins a handful of other celebrities that are knocked up, including: Jamie Lynn Spears, Camila Alves, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez and possibly Angelina Jolie.

Details of Sam Lufti's deposition with K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, have yet to be released, but it has been hinted that Lufti brokered a deal on behalf of Britney Spears with a celebrity photo agency.

The gist? The paparazzi group gets free rein to take whatever Britney Spears photos it wants and Spears gets a cut of the profits. It has also been hinted that Sam Lufti is one shady character - not that this is news to us.

Spears Family Moment

The New York Post's Page Six reports ...

"Britney Spears' constant companion and 'manager,' Sam Lufti, has had three restraining orders taken out against him in California before hopping on the pop tart's crazy train. Danny Haines, one of the people who obtained a court order against Lufti, says Sam told him he should "just kill himself" when their friendship soured. Sam Lufti was "even more jealous than a lover," Haines tells Blender magazine. He says Lufti would go to extremes, telling him he was a "worthless mother[bleeper]" one minute and that he "loved" him the next."

"When Haines eventually cut him off, Sam Lufti humiliated him, e-mailing naked photos of him to his family, friends and co-workers. He texted and called incessantly and, according to court documents, told Haines he hoped his sister would be "raped to death." Haines says that in one e-mail to him, Lufti wrote of Haines' mother that he hoped "Satan devours her flesh and bones" and he looked forward to the day he could 'piss on her burial.'"

In short, Sam Lutfi is ...

  • Actually named Osama Lutfi
  • At least a little uncontrollable
  • Possibly a chick (serious jealousy issues)
  • Possibly gay (not that there is anything wrong with it whatsoever, but why the hell does he have naked photos of Danny Haines!?)
  • In need of professional help for rage problems
  • Perhaps the most seedy character ever on our site

Naturally, he and Britney Spears are best friends. Makes perfect sense.

Although they've been spotted making out and clubbing, Laguna Beach alumna Lauren Conrad says she and Stephen Colletti are not back on.

"[Stephen Colletti] and I are just friends," Conrad told Us Weekly.

Lauren Conrad in Hawaii

The duo were spotted getting cozy at the L.A. Kings - Anaheim Ducks hockey game (yawn) in L.A. Thursday night, but Lauren Conrad said, "I was there with a big group of friends. I'm dating but no specific person."

The unattached Conrad, who's been unlucky in love of late despite many a hot suitor, says she's undecided on Valentine's Day plans.

"Will you be my Valentine?" she asked Audrina Patridge - her roommate, BFF and co-star on The Hills - at a recent event. "I think every single girl dreads Valentine's Day. We'll probably make it fun and come to Vegas." Nice!

LC and Stephen are still just friends, she says.

Lauren Conrad has also moved on from her internship at Teen Vogue, which has been featured on The Hills' last two seasons: "I actually just got a new job but can't talk about it right now. I'm really excited about it."

In other Hills romance news, Brody Jenner, Conrad's ex, is denying reports that he hooked up with Lindsay Lohan this weekend in New York City.

"We were hanging out as friends. Nothing happened," Jenner tells E! News. "We weren't all over each other, and we definitely weren't making out. I am dating and really happy with [my new girlfriend] Cora Skinner."

Well, maybe not you personally. Unless you've sold Lindsay Lohan drugs, that is.

But Michael Lohan - the Firecrotch Queen's father, who makes Joe Simpson appear relatively sane - is taking the law into his own hands:

Before Getting Hammered

"I've been looking for the people who've been selling my daughter and these other kids the drugs. And come hell or high water, one day I'm going to expose them. God is going to get even with this guy. God is going to get even with this guy. He's destroyed a lot of lives."

Hear that, Peter Doherty?
