After a much-publicized break up, it's safe to say that Benji Madden and Sophie Monk have moved on in opposing directions.

The Good Charlotte singer immediately jumped into bed with Paris Hilton, becoming the latest notch on a bedpost that's seen more carvings than a caveman's lair.

Monk, however, has seemingly gone in the more metrosexual direction: she was spotted with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest over the weekend. They left L.A. club Foxtail nightclub in the same car.

Has Ryan Seacrest really seen Sophie Monk nude? If so, we gotta start hosing our own television shows and flirting with British men on them.

If these two really are hittin it, what would Simon Cowell say?

Actually a decent actor but better known for being a loose cannon, Gary Busey surfaces every now and again. Bless him for it.

Last night on the red carpet, prior to the start of the 80th annual Academy Awards, the 63-year-old, somewhat insane actor inexplicably hijacked American Idol host Ryan Seacrest's interview with Jennifer Garner and Laura Linney.

He then embraced Garner and planted one on her neck.

You gotta love Gary Busey. Here's the clip. Be forewarned that it's a sure bet to make you squirm with awkwardness...

It wasn't the greatest American Idol audition of Robbie Carrico's life last night.

The semifinalist performed "One is the Loneliest Number" by Three Dog Night and was told by Simon Cowell that he's "not quite sure yet whether [Robbie is] very comfortable in this rock thing or whether [he's] a pop singer."

Ouch. But it actually got worse, as Ryan Seacrest told Carrico that he may be dressed "like a rocker, but kind of looks like Justin Timberlake!"

A compliment, right? Except that both Carrico and Timberlake both have dated Britney Spears. Awkward alert, folks!

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.

Okay, so we just made that title up 45 minutes ago. But we felt that in an exciting presidential election year, The Hollywood Gossip should hold its own race - and YOU, our readers, should get to vote on the winner!

Step #1? A PRIMARY featuring seven exciting President-VP tickets from the world of celebrity gossip. Your votes will help narrow the field to three by May 1, leading to a special run-off election among the top vote-getters.

You can VOTE HERE now, with the ballot also appearing on the right-hand side of The Hollywood Gossip's home page until May 1.

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.

That's it! Cast your vote for your favorite candidates in our Celebrity Gossip Presidential Primary by voting on our home page or by clicking HERE!

Sorry, Simon Cowell. But you didn't make this year's Victoria's Secret What is Sexy? list.

Even more frustrating for this American Idol judge? His on-screen rival, Ryan Seacrest, did earn a spot in the latest rankings. The lingerie company announced this week that Seacrest has a sexy smile.

Ryan Seacrest is sexy. We can safely say a contestant on this year's American Idol, Kristy Lee Cook, can also be classified as such.

"What's sexy about (Seacrest) is he doesn't act like he is," Victoria's Secret spokeswoman Monica Mitro said. "We felt that his smile was quite sexy â€" in a very subtle and innocent and humble way."

A Saturday night party in Scottsdale, Arizona is planned to recognize the honorees. They also include annoying, unfunny comedian Dane Cook, Rihanna, Tony Romo, Fergie and Josh Duhamel.

Simon Cowell must be jealous of Erica Lancellotti.

After all, the owner of New York City hot spot, BarCandy, is dating Cowell's dream man: Ryan Seacrest.

Seacrest... In Attendance!

In an interview with In Touch, Lancellotti says she and the American Idol host have been getting it on for awhile now:

"We have been dating on and off for a few years," she said. "We met at the Wetbar of the W hotel in New York and the only thing that has kept us apart has been his busy schedule."

Erica Lancellotti looks to be mixing some fruity drink. It must be for her boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest.

Overall, how does Erica feel about her new man?

"He's a great guy and I love him."

Ryan Seacrest was at Les Deux October 26 when Britney Spears mingled with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and said he saw her give Romo a lap dance.

"I spoke to her for a minute. She seemed to be in a very, very good mood," Ryan Seacrest said on his KIIS-FM radio show this morning. Meds will do that.

"She had her sunglasses on. I said, 'Busy day, huh?' She smiled and laughed and said, 'Yeah.' And then I believe I saw her and Tony Romo frolicking."

"Lap dancing?" a co-host asked.

"I mean, some would say," Seacrest said.

"She's on his lap," the co-host continued.

"Yeah," Seacrest replied.

Spears and Alli Sims first met up with Tony Romo when they made a five-minute stop at Ketchup restaurant in L.A. after her frenzied custody hearing on Friday.

Britney Spears and Alli Sims left after about five minutes.

The pair hit Les Deux around 10:30 p.m., with Tony Romo (who was recently linked to Sophia Bush) and his friends joining them a short time later.

"She was dancing and talking a lot with Tony," an onlooker told Us Weekly.

Britney Spears, the witness added, "seemed in a really good mood and was super happy when [one of her] songs came on."

Her pal, Avril Lavigne, also popped by her table to say hi. No word on whether Sam Lutfi was there or whether he just came over later that night.

In typical Britney Spears clubbing style, the singer changed into a new dress and shades in the club bathroom midway through the night.

By 1:15 a.m., Spears left with Alli Sims, but returned to Les Deux a short time later after realizing she accidentally left her cell phone behind.

And it's a good thing she did. You don't want some random idiot getting ahold of your meth dealer's phone number. Or Tony Romo's.

The following parting shots from the weekend appear courtesy of the New York Daily News, which has compiled a nice list of Emmy gossip...

They say they're just friends, but Heroes co-stars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia seldom left each others' side during the weekend. At the Governor's Ball, he was seen... cutting her meat! Maybe that's what they're calling it these days. Or what 30-year-old does for someone who's 18.

Host Ryan Seacrest was still awaiting a critique from his American Idol foil Simon Cowell. "Simon sure is miserable," Ryan deadpanned. "He skipped out on the dinner to sit by himself and sulk."

Seacrest and Cowell - who rated Ryan's effort a "respectable" 2.5 stars out of 4 - partied together later at a TV Guide bash.

The Emmys failed to impress Entourage star Adrian Grenier. He was overheard to say, "I don't watch any of the [awards] shows, and I never win."

An event producer for 50 Cent loaned Paris Hilton his room key so she and some guy pals could retreat to his room to "smoke" before the party last weekend. A wobbly Hilton then "chugged a vitamin water to quench her dry mouth."

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy hit the dance floor like it was 1989 when Duran Duran rocked the Entertainment Tonight party. Also there were Anna Nicole baby daddy Larry Birkhead and Daisy Fuentes. Howard K. Stern? Not present.

You don't need a forensics lab to confirm that David Chase put out a hit on President Bush in his Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night.

Toting his golden angel for best drama series, The Sopranos creator alluded to the Bush administration when he pondered whether "this nation itself was run by gangsters ... maybe it is... there's no accountability."

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane was appalled that Fox bleeped out Sally Field's comment about the "godâ€"--- war." Jon Stewart joked that censors "probably thought she was saying 'whore.' This is Fox... You gotta class the joint up!"

We couldn't help but notice that this weekly pop culture power rankings in Sports Illustrated contain some familiar faces and stories to readers of The Hollywood Gossip. Let's take a look at what's in the news and who's winning SI's notoriety contest ...

10. Joey Fatone
The "Fat One" signs on to run the red carpet show for the TV Guide Network. We never thought we'd say this, but, we miss Joan Rivers.

9. Chuck Liddell
The former UFC champ partied all night with Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon of Entourage) in Las Vegas last weekend while Dillon celebrated his birthday.

8. Duane Chapman
Dog The Bounty Hunter may have a hit TV show and best selling book but he still can't escape the law. There's gotta be a Michael Vick joke here somewhere.

7. Hayden Panettiere
The hottest cheerleader this side of Friday Night Lights turns 18 which means bring on the cigarettes and pornos (her words, not ours).

6. Bill Murray
There's nothing funny about drinking and driving, but when it entails Bill Murray throwing back a few in a golf cart, it has the makings of a Caddyshack reunion.

5. Tom Brady
So, Brady wants some time off to see the birth of his child (with Bridget Moynahan, his ex). We'd pay to see the look on Bill Belichick's face when he's asked about that one.

4. Tiki Barber / Eli Manning
Tiki finally lit a fire under Eli and made him break out of his clichéd monologue after questioning the QB's leadership skills. Why didn't he do that last year?

3. Ryan Seacrest
Just when you thought Super Bowl pre-game shows couldn't get any worse, Fox announced that the American Idol metrosexual will be hosting the snoozefest in February.

2. The Orange Bowl
One of college football's most storied stadiums is living on borrowed time after the Hurricanes start playing home games at Dolphin Stadium in 2008.

1. Michael Vick
Can we stop talking about whether or not Michael Vick will be able to resume his NFL career when he's done serving his time in jail? Any team that signs Vick when he gets out might as well go out and get Kevin Federline to play wide receiver.

Ryan Seacrest is known for being masculine and really into sports.

NOT!

Nevertheless, the American Idol host will be in charge of the pre-game and halftime festivities for next February's Super Bowl XLII at Arizona's University of Phoenix Stadium. Does this mean that Arizona native and last seasons American Idol champion, Jordin Sparks, will perform at the game?

We can only hope so.

For now, though, we're just gonna mock the decision: Ryan Seacrest at the Super Bowl?!?

That's like inviting Tila Tequila to a clothes convention.

Or considering Shannon Funk for an Employee of the Month award.

Or putting Michael Vick in charge of a kennel.

We could do this for hours.
