That may have been the worst 30 minutes of our lives.

We just sat through a press conference hosted by Donald Trump, the owner of the Miss USA pageant, as he spoke glowingly about Carrie Prejean and gave her the opportunity to stand on a soap box and peer down at the ignorant, hateful Americans that dared to question her right of free speech.

Before we detail the event in full, here's a nauseating rundown of the main points:

  • Prejean will remain Miss California USA;
  • Trump would love to have Perez Hilton as a judge again next year;
  • Carrie's grandfather fought at The Battle of the Bulge in World War II and (cue tears!) Carrie said what happened to her should NOT happen in America. It undermines the Constitutional rights her grandfather fought for.
  • Regarding the topless photos that were leaked this morning, Prejean said (READY FOR THIS????) that they were the result of a "windy day" and that she had no idea the photographer would ever release them.
  • Seriously, folks: Carrie Prejean claims the wind, and an immoral photographer, are to blame for this picture!

It bears repeating, over and over and over: Carrie Prejean says she is only showing a nipple in this photograph because it was a "windy day."

The press conference began with Trump, clearly loving the attention, summarizing the recent series of events involving Miss California. He said she gave an "honorable" answer to a controversial, fair question and that Carrie's response echoed that of the President of the United States.

He also said if Prejean's beauty wasn't so great, nobody really would have cared what she said. (Got that message, ladies? Ugly women needn't ever bother giving their opinions!)

Trump said he reviewed the semi-naked photos carefully and emphasized that this is the "21st century." He determined the photos were "fine... beautiful... risque.. and, in many cases, actually lovely."

Regarding Miss California officials Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, Trump said they met for hours with Prejean in his office. The miscommunication issues they had with her are "totally solved" and Carrie will make them proud.

It was then time for Prejean to read a statement from the podium.

Donald Trump will offer up his opinion on, well, just about everything, and it doesn't matter if anyone asked for it. The Donald's newest target: Anne Hathaway and her "sellout" response to the Raffaello Follieri situation!

The star of The Apprentice recently told Access Hollywood that it was extremely "disloyal" of Anne Hathaway to leave Raffaello Follieri. Seriously.

Anne Hathaway Harper's Bazaar Cover

"She hasn't remained very loyal to him, has she? So when he had plenty of money, she liked him," Trump said. "But after that, not as good, right?"

Donald Trump is critical of Anne Hathaway's dispatching of Raffaello Follieri.

Trump missed have missed the fact that Raffaello Follieri was arrested three times in as many months - the third courtesy of the frickin' FBI.

You'd also think that being worth $2 billion, Donald would know more about gold-digging. Anne wasn't in it for the money - she's rich too, idiot!

Heather Mills would have stuck by Follieri long enough to marry his ass with no pre-nup and quickly divorce him though, we're fairly sure of that.

Forget Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Mike Huckabee.

While these political stars each have their positive attributes, none are worthy of the sought-after title of Celebrity Gossip President.

Now, we present you with the candidates for Celebrity Gossip President and Vice President, along with the respective parties nominating them ...

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
(Reality TV Party)
Phony, plastic, master manipulators and attention-seeking media whores who are obsessed with fame. It's like The Hills couple was destined to go into politics.

Kim Kardashian and Ray J
(Celebrity Sex Tape Party)
Upside: Not-so-secret videotaping of all U.S. citizens is sure to improve our national security; Downside: Budgetary concerns due to new White House furniture needing to be made to accommodate Kim's giant ass.

Past Lovers

Donald Trump and Vince McMahon
(Bad Hair-Megalomaniac Party)
If a Trump-McMahon team fails, it certainly won't be due to lack of funds. Or shameless, self-promoting publicity stunts. Or huge grapefruits.

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
(Super-Cute Celeb Couple Party)
Zanessa promises nude photos and perfect hair for all!

Suri Cruise and Jayden James Federline
(Celebrity Baby Party)
Upside: Very cute, little political baggage offers fresh start. Downside: Inexperience, possible brainwashing (Suri) and malnutrition (Jayden).

Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi
(Seedy Britney Spears Hanger-On Party)
Should either be apprehended as part of a sleeper cell before the November election, Alli Sims will take his place on the ticket.

Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest
(American Idol Party)
A Simon-Ryan ticket will be full of witty barbs, low-brow insults and palpable, homoerotic tension. At least Paula won't be part of it.

Celebrities are sure able to convince people to drink a certain soda or eat crappy fast food, but when it comes to politics, their word carries little weight.

In other words, if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, it's probably not going to have much do to with the support given to her by 50 Cent.

According to a telephone survey of more than 1,000 people, conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, celebrities' endorsements for U.S. presidential candidates don't do a whole lot - in fact, in some cases they would actually cause people not to vote for a candidate.

For example, when asked whether an endorsement from rapper Kanye West would make them more or less likely to vote for a candidate, just 4 percent said it would make them more likely, but 15 percent said they'd be less likely.

Kanye West: Great at rapping and complaining to the media about not winning awards for it; Bad at influencing the public endorsing political candidates.

Other celebrities who had a negative impact on voter choices were Donald Trump, Jay Leno, Toby Keith and - here's an absolute stunner - Bill O'Reilly.

The endorsement Barack Obama got from Oprah Winfrey was a wash - 15 percent said an endorsement from Oprah helps, while 15 percent said it would hurt.

Looks like Oprah should stick to recommending books! Barack, meanwhile, might want to think of making Amber Lee Ettinger his campaign manager.

Britney Spears' prayers have been answered.

Well, not really. Giant bags of pork rinds don't just fall out of the sky, you know.

Shoplifter

But Donald Trump himself has offered to hire her and resurrect her career. Along with other train wrecks.

Armed with the searing insight that she's a "[bleeping] mess," Trump tells the New York Post's Page Six that he's negotiating with Britney about appearing on his new Celebrity Apprentice and that he's also "thinking about" having Paris Hilton on the show.

However, says Lord Combover, "I don't know if we're going to do it."

Yeah, there's no guarantee you're going to see this at any point. There's only so much Paris Hilton pussy you can plaster across prime time television, after all.

As for Brit and Paris' comrade-in-wreckitude, Lindsay Lohan, the Donald says he's going to contact her this week about the show. He did not say whether or not she will try to have sex with him, but the odds are never too low with LiLo.

Paris Hilton's rep says he wasn't aware if any deal was in the works, and Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan mouthpieces weren't available for comment.

Relax, guys. Donald Trump is giving you the chance to watch Tara Conner and Katie Blair in action again.

Girl-on-girl action? Perhaps.

Donald Trump Profile

According to Variety, the Donald and MTV are joining forces on a reality show that will mix The Apprentice with The Real World, along with the winners of Trump's beauty pageants.

The falf-hour series Pageant Place will see Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA living in the same New York apartment.

Conner, who of course became the subject of controversy after reports of her partying surfaced last year, will also star, serving as a sort of den mother and chaperone to the women. Sounds like the perfect role model to us. It's just too bad Katie Rees couldn't have joined her on the program.

"We'd been thinking about everything that happens backstage and how women like Tara captured the imagination of so many of us, including a slob named Rosie O'Donnell, who didn't like that I gave Tara a second chance," Trump said. "And we thought, Wouldn't it be great if we let the cameras roll?"

Tara Conner and Katie Blair have made out at least once. Who knows what the future will bring on Pageant Place?

The three women who hold the pageant crowns always live in the same Gotham apartment during their yearlong reign anyway because they attend to their functions as pageant winners; we assume this job is almost as difficult as that of Tila Tequila and her MySpace posing.

"What's great is that we're not bringing them together -- we're tapping into a real situation," said MTV programming topper Tony DiSanto.

The initial season of Pageant Place will follow the women - current Miss Universe Riyo Mori, Miss USA Rachel Smith and Miss Teen USA Katie Blair - as they model, make appearances on behalf of various causes and embark on international trips.

It could also feature drama between Conner and Blair, who have, shall we say, an unusual relationship.

Thanks to People for this collection of celebrity sound bites...

"If I was her, I would hit someone the second I got in there and go into PC, protective custody. Then she's just got to sit in there and read some books."
- Law & Order: SVU star Ice-T, when asked by New York magazine if he had any advice for Paris Hilton before she went to jail.

THG NOTE: Kind of similar to our initial (Office Space-inspired) advice to her, which was to either kick someone's ass the first day, or become someone's bitch.

"What can I say besides... farewells are always difficult."
- Rosie O'Donnell, responding to fan support over her feud with her View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, during her regular blog Web cast. ABC and O'Donnell announced Friday that she's not returning to the show.

"On this one I think Rosie should win. I think anybody that's against the war in Iraq is the winner of the fight, because to justify the war in Iraq ... only an imbecile could do that."
- Rosie's former nemesis Donald Trump, siding with O'Donnell in her feud with Hasselbeck

"I feel fabulous... When I wake up in the morning and I haven't had my coffee and I stumble downstairs, I'm like, '... Oh, s---' I completely forget that I've done this. And I have a few moments where I'm, like, 'Who's that?'"
- X-Men star Anna Paquin, on joining the ranks of Hollywood stars who've gone blonde

"They were very sweet and they poured me a vodka and orange juice and then I was fine."
- Eva Mendes, on having to be coaxed to do her very first on-screen nude scene with Joaquin Phoenix for her new film We Own the Night

"To think that Yoko Ono would even see it makes me want to throw up."
- Paul Rudd, discussing taking on the role of John Lennon in the rock-biopic parody Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, to Entertainment Weekly

"Both are ways to make a good dishonest living."
- Keith Richards, on snorting his dad. Just kidding. What the guitar god refers is being a rock star compared to a pirate. Keith portrays Johnny Depp's dad in the new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel. Depp has admitted his portrayal of the character is based on Richards.

We wonder if Rosie O'Donnell will send flowers to the latest celebrity grandfather?

After all, Donald Trump Jr. and wife Vanessa welcomed their first child Saturday afternoon in New York City. This means that The Donald is now a grandpa.

Birther

Moreover, son Barron Trump is now an uncle to Kai Madison, the 6-lb. 14-oz. girl and latest member of the insanely rich clan.

"Everyone's great," Trump Jr. said in a phone call from the hospital. "Baby's great, Vanessa's great ��" and I'm getting used to the idea [of being a father]."

The name came from the baby's maternal grandfather, the younger Donald said. It's Danish and almost as pretty as Ruby Sweetheart.

When the couple first announced the pregnancy in November, Vanessa told People magazine that "everyone's very excited," although "if you mention the 'grandpa' word [to the elder Donald Trump], he might not be so excited."

That's to be expected.

Also to be expected? The plans Kevin Federline must have for Jayden James to get himself a piece of Kai Madison, along with the Trump riches.

Yes, you read that right. Forget Matthew McConaughey, George Clooney and their annual battle for Sexiest Man Alive honors. This battle is for the complete opposite (dis)honor.

This list, compiled by the amazing Boston Phoenix, is chock full of irritating smirks, bad haircuts, possible murders and some seriously ugly mugs. Yup, the Phoenix list of The 100 Unsexiest Men Alive has it all, and we've got the highlights...

Stupid Speidi

100. Tom Cruise. The heat that Tom Cruise emitted early in his career has long evaporated, leaving only a smirking corpse in its wake. Cruise struts around like a smaller, yappy version of Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator, but comes off creepier, given his campaign to impregnate and wed enslave hot actresses.

92. Osama bin Laden. Here's a man that could use a makeover. Note to Osama: camouflage jackets have been out since the millennium. Sure, there's not a surplus of hip outlets â€" or even dry cleaners â€" in the caves of Afghanistan. But come on.

87. Joe Simpson. The former Baptist minister relentlessly pimps his daughters (Ashlee and what's-her-name) to MTV, John Mayer and Pete Wentz, then makes ourskin crawl by ogling his offspring's endowments. Gnarly.

79. Joe Francis. Skeezy creator of Girls Gone Wild stuck it to Paris Hilton and Tara Reid. If doing that disease-ridden duo wasn't enough to warrant his place on this list, he's headed to jail on contempt-of-court charges.

56. Kim Jong-Il. Besides an uncanny resemblance to Tom Cruise, the deranged North Korean demigod is a porn connoisseur, binge drinker and womanizer. Oh, and a mass murderer with nukes.

45. The Duke Lacrosse Team
. You go to Duke. You play lacrosse. Yet your social life is so barren that you've got to rent a couple of cut-rate strippers? You dudes are guilty... of having no game whatsoever.

35. Kevin Federline. Would've placed even higher had Britney Spears not gone off the deep end and made FedEx look relatively stable by comparison.

33. Spencer Pratt. This obnoxious star of the MTV "documentary" series The Hills (left) has greasy hair, a veiny neck and forehead, circa 1994 gold chains and a cast-iron jaw. Yet he still manages to get Playboy playmates' numbers (while straight up playing Heidi Montag and making Lauren Conrad's life a living hell). Spencer Pratt, we loathe thee.

30. Howie Mandel. Few things are less sexy than obsessive-compulsive disorder and fear of touching others. That spells bad news for the freaky host of Deal or No Deal. No deal, Howie Mandel. No deal.

28. Dustin Diamond. Deviant, cretinous former child star who scammed his fans by selling shirts to help him avoid foreclosure â€" there were no such proceedings against him. Then there was the Dustin Diamond sex tape in which Screech gave two skanks the Dirty Sanchez.

27. Mr. Blackwell. His relevance is on life-support, but he nonetheless makes the news every year with his embarrassing list of the best- and worst-dressed celebrity fashion offenders.

25. O.J. Simpson. We're not even gonna go there.

23. Pete Doherty. "Heroin chic" is predicated on being able to do lots and lots of drugs without looking like a skid-row pin cushion. Somehow Pete Doherty (below) didn't get the memo. By association, he made coked-up gal-pal Kate Moss unsexy, too, for which men the world over will curse him forever.

20. Jared Fogle. Ubiquity and over-exposure has turned a merely annoying ex-fatty Subway pitchman into a serious pain in the ass.

18. Mel Gibson. Hateful director with massive alcohol problem.

11. Perez Hilton. Exponentially overhyped celebrity gossip blogger whose sense of entitlement far outweighs his contribution to society. Oh yeah, Perez Hilton is also gross.

7. Sanjaya Malakar. The class clown of American Idol is operating under the delusion that he's the class stud. Shyamali Malakar, on the other hand...

6. Don Imus. Long before Don Imus (below, left) got the ax for calling the Rutgers womens' basketball team a bunch of "nappy-headed hos," this talk-show troll established himself as one of the ugliest faces in an industry that prizes them.

3. Howard K. Stern. We understood the zillion-year-old billionaire: Anna Nicole Smith would sleep with anything for money. But her dalliance with this glassy-eyed salamander of a man (above, right) forced Americans to lower her standards: she'd screw anything with... kidneys? At least she was smart enough not to have a baby with him.

1. Donald Trump. It's not the greed, the preposterous comb-over, or the public bullying that turns us off any more: it's the pursed lips and the scrunched stare. Actually, scratch that: it's still the hair, the greed, and the bullying.

For a time, his name was inexorably linked to that gargoyle Rosie O'Donnell.

Thankfully, there's another (less annoying) woman in the life of Donald Trump.

Donald and Melania Trump Picture

The former Melania Knauss, now Melania Trump, is loving life as the wife of the Donald and is having no trouble adjusting to being a mom.

Although their 1-year-old son, Barron (one of the cutest celebrity babies around) sure keeps her busy.

"He's a very smart boy with a lot of energy. Sometimes he's hard to control," Melania told People.

Even though he just celebrated his first birthday last month, little Barron Trump is "very smart and very serious," Melania said.

"He's walking and talking: He says Dadada and Mama. He's throwing a lot of stuff and he's just an amazing, amazing boy."

And the Slovenian model is basking in the joys of being a mom: "Motherhood is amazing - there's really nothing like it."

Britney Spears might agree, if she spent any time with her kids.

Still, Melania, who said shortly after Barron was born that giving birth was "very, very easy," admits that it can be challenging to make time for her marriage to Donald Trump, motherhood and herself.

"It's combining the whole thing together," she said. "It's another person that we have to take care of. It's exciting, but it's responsibility too."

How did she and The Donald celebrate Barron's March 20 birthday? Melania says they went to Mar-a-Lago, Trump's Palm Beach, Fla., resort where they wed in 2005, and gave their son special - and top secret - present.

"I don't want to talk about it, but it was a very special gift."

Our guess is that it's a picture of Vince McMahon bald.
