Apparently, when Perez Hilton speaks with Michael Lohan, it's not the end of the world.

We were surprised by this, too.

Perez Hilton and Katy Perry

After all, what better sign of the Apocalypse is there than the world's most self-serving celebrity gossip blogger talking to the biggest media whore this side of Heidi Montag?

Check out the conversation below. It's more painful than driving in a car with Nick Hogan...

Perez Hilton is on Team Heidi.

This is shocking news, we know.

But in The Hills gossip regarding that show's third season premiere, Hilton - the world's most annoying celebrity gossip source - was miffed when a rumor surfaced that said he was banned from the show's opening party.

Yes, the same party Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were also barred from.

Perez claimed he never intended to attend the premiere, but was certainly never denied access from the event. He blames Lauren Conrad for the rumor.

"I'm not stupid, that obviously means that Lauren Conrad's publicist was planting an item ... Lauren Conrad ... is a conniving manipulator behind the scenes. How pathetic is that that you're hungry for press and you're using my name to get it?"

He then added, "I sound like Spencer Pratt now!"

Sadly, this was probably something to be proud of for Perez. The man is more evil than Isaiah Washington and Simon Monjack put together.

Please tell us this isn't so. You can do so much better, Vincent Chase.

By the looks of this photo, Paris Hilton (and her ever-increasing boobs) have been getting awfully chummy with Entourage star, Adrian Grenier.

We'd say that these two can't possibly be dating because Hilton has been linked with Tyler Atkins recently... but, well, has that ever stopped Paris before?

Somewhere, Stavros Niarchos is shaking his head...

Adrian Grenier, you're Vincent Chase! You can get any girl out there! Why settle for Paris Hilton?

Perhaps the stress of her non-wedding debacle got to Tameka Foster.

Citing a deluge of emails from readers in the Atlanta area - home to the baby-faced R&B god and music mogul we know as Usher - Perez Hilton reports that his 37-year-old, pregnant fiancee has been hospitalized since yesterday.

Tameka Foster and Usher

The speculation? Tameka Foster is in pre-term labor.

Local radio stations in Atlanta are reporting that Usher's future bride, who he almost married Saturday, has been at the hospital since mid-day Sunday.

Usher, 28, and Foster were supposed to wed Saturday, until it was abruptly called off - apparently for many reasons, some frivolous and others … slightly less frivolous.

Our celebrity news readers, by and large, are not fans of Tameka Foster. But this news, if substantiated, would be very sad. What do you think. Are you buying it?

The great Kevin Federline is a pimp when it comes to the ladies. Or so he thinks.

Meanwhile, Perez Hilton is a pimp of a different sort... the man slings celebrity news, gossip and rumors like it's his job.

Who will win when these two gentlemen square off in a big pimpin' photo finish - inspired by pics of Jayden James Federline's dad and the self-proclaimed Queen of All Media holding huge cups proclaiming their pimp-dom? You decide...

Hmm... It's hard to pick Kevin Federline as the winner... in anything.

Nevertheless, we've gotta give it to FedEx here. Not only is one of his four kids (Sean Preston) already pimpin' it hard at age 1, but the guy knocked up Shar Jackson! Twice! He also married Britney Spears back when she had her $h!t together. Think about it.

Also, Kevin's reported new girlfriend, Liz Hernandez, is pretty cute! There is no content here. Sorry, Perez. You're the queen of gossip, but victory is K-Fed's in this case.

Talk about splitting hairs.

When Hollywood's whore-able ho-tel heiress and the reigning celebrity gossip king (or queen, as he calls himself) get together in Southern California, the only question on our minds is who we'd rather be stranded on a desert island with.

Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt Pic

Well, we might pick Hayden Panettiere before either one. Just maybe.

But let's assume Paris and Perez Hilton were the only pair of options in this scenario. Clearly, they know the kind of conundrum this poses.

As Paris Hilton and the celebrity gossip blog god who co-opted her name (as well as copyrighted celebrity photos without permission) strut down the street, the debate is on...

Who sucks worse? It truly is a duel to the death.

Lindsay Lohan's gal pal, Samantha Ronson, has blind-sided two popular celebrity gossip blogs with a $20 million libel suit late last week.

According to the New York Daily News, Ronson struck back at suggestions that cocaine found in Lindsay Lohan's car was actually hers.

Old Lohan

The rumors began after the now infamous fender bender that landed the Mean Girls actress in rehab.

Named as defendants were Jill Ishkanian, who runs the Sunset Photo and News Agency, and Mario Lavandeira, who blogs under the name Perez Hilton.

In June, Perez Hilton repeated the cocaine claim that first appeared on Celebrity Babylon, a Web site operated by Sunset Photo.

That site first claimed that Samantha Ronson, a budding celebrity disc jockey in her own right, was "making a tidy profit on the side, shilling Lindsay Lohan, 20, out to photographers eager to get her photo looking passed out and wasted."

The story about Ronson, a poor gal's DJ AM, continues:

"If that wasn't shocking enough, sources say that it was Samantha Ronson who was holding the cocaine later found in Lindsay Lohan's car."

Although the suit was filed in L.A. Superior Court Thursday, Ishkanian said she wasn't aware of it. She also did not say anything about the rumored Lindsay Lohan nude pics.

"This is the first I'm hearing about it," she said yesterday. "I have no comment."

Perez Hilton could not immediately be contacted, as he was probably too busy doodling on celebrity photos he neglected to pay royalties for.

It's been brewing for awhile, but no one has cared because it's only that disgrace to celebrity news Perez Hilton, a.k.a. Mario Lavandeira, and oil heir Jason Davis, a.k.a. Gummi Bear.

But when words - and blows - are exchanged outside Les Deux, well, we've finally got to start covering this strange celebrity feud.

TMZ reports that an enraged Jason Davis body-slammed Perez in front of Les Deux last night as tensions between the two escalated.

Wearing a festive silk blouse that may have caused the extinction of silkworms, Gummi ripped Perez Hilton a new one as a response to Perez's vomit-filled tirade the other night.

Jason Davis has been in the news a lot lately, although mostly for his own punditry, and we're not really sure why anyone cares. But no matter.

Calling the portly celebrity gossip purveyor a "desperate homosexual," the portly, vehemently anti-racism Gummi Bear apparently doesn't mind a l'il homo hating.

Somewhere, Isaiah Washington is smiling.

After the dustup, Gummi waddled back to cameras to say that "Perez wishes he could be like the people he writes about," and added that Hilton is "a miserable, moronic human being."

Well, no one can argue with Jason Davis on that one.

Gummi Bear concluded his Perez Hilton hate-fest by saying that he didn't "give two sh!ts" about him. Half an hour later, he was hungry again.

In addition to being the lesser-known, less cool brother of Brandon Davis (yes, it's actually true), Jason is frequently seen on celebrity gossip blogs getting turned away at clubs.

That about sums it up.

Popular celebrity gossip columnist Perez Hilton had his site shut down for several hours after the host received complaints about the copyrighted photos on it.

On Tuesday, Perez was silenced, but the quote-unquote gossip gangsta was back online Wednesday - hosted by a different Internet service provider.

The celebrity gossip "writer," whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, is the target of several lawsuits by paparazzi and others who claim he posts their photos and videos on his site without permission.

Pararazzi agencies make big bucks selling exclusive celebrity photos to sites and magazines. The companies that have sued Lavandeira say he has refused to pay fees to license the photos, claiming he has a right as a journalist to use them for free.

Perez Hilton routinely posts tabloid photos of celebrities and adds really lame drawings, stupid blogs and scribbled, unfunny commentary on and under them.

Mario Lavandeira vehemently defends his actions, saying his "commentary" on the photos constitutes "fair use" and is protected by copyright law.

Los Angeles photo agency X17 Online sued Lavandeira over copyright violations in federal court last year, asking for $7.6 million in damages.

The suit claimed Hilton used 51 photos without permission, payment or credit, including images of a pregnant Katie Holmes, Kevin Federline pumping gas and Britney Spears.

We're gonna assume that the Associated Press, who reported this story, means a photo of K-Fed pumping gas and a separate photo of Britney Spears - not a pic of FedEx up in that.

A judge denied the firm's motion for an injunction against Perez Hilton, although the lawsuit continues, as does another filed on behalf of several other photo agencies.

A lawsuit filed by Universal Studios claiming the site posted a stolen photo of Jennifer Aniston from the film The Break-Up is also pending.

He's already involved in multiple lawsuits regarding his illegal use of celebrity photos from reputable agencies such as x17.

Now, on top of those legal problems, it appears Perez Hilton may have used the virtual five-finger discount (so to speak) when it came to creating his site's own logo.

Paparazzi Mobs Perez, Speidi

TMZ has obtained a copy of a letter sent to the quote-unquote celebrity gossip gangsta from Creative Age Publications, demanding their logo be removed from his site.

We're not surprised in the least that such allegations have been levied against Hilton, seen here with pal Lindsay Lohan.

Creative Age alleges that the picture Perez (a.k.a. Mario Lavandeira) uses as his logo is theirs. It appears in a feature in the September 2004 issue of Nailpro, a magazine geared toward salon owners and managers.

Deborah Carver, publisher of Nailpro, says, "I'm a [Perez Hilton] fan, but he can't use our award-winning photos. This isn't the first time he's done this. These are proprietary works that take an entire team of people to put together."

The letter, which is dated today, tells the blogger, who is biased towards pseudo-namesake Paris Hilton and many other stars he covers:

"Please be advised that our client is entitled to seek statuatory damages for willful copyright infringement up to $150,000 per work infringed."

Lavandeira's lawyer says he has not received any such letter. Expect Perez to fight back with something really creative - like a picture of a fingernail with white dots on it.
