Terrible singer somehow made the finals on American Idol. Even today, people still love Sanjaya Malakar.

The hottest reality TV non-star couple that wasn't is officially not. If that makes any sense. In other words, Holly Montag and Sanjaya Malakar are just friends.

Despite becoming close on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, Holly Montag insists there is no jungle fever with American Idol punch line Sanjaya Malakar.

"We are not dating but just very close," the sister of Heidi Montag said at the Sports Dream Celebrity Poker pool party in Beverly Hills over the weekend.

Although they aren't a couple, a source told Us Weekly the two had plans to go to Hawaii together and drove from L.A. to Seattle to meet his parents.

What does the 25-year-old Montag make of the romance rumors?

"It was funny," Holly said. "I was shocked because we were such close friends, and I had no idea that anyone else thought there was anything romantic going on. People in camp joked about it, but we knew it was a joke so it was funny to us."

"We will continue our friendship forever," she says.

If they do decide to take their relationship to the next level, however, they can rest assured that Spencer Pratt will give them his blessing.

I will very happily hand the famed cup of superstar couple on planet Earth to Sanjaya and Holly in a second," he said recently. "Go for it!"

This story seems far-fetched, but we must remember, Sanjaya Malakar is a sexy beast. The man exudes hotness. He is the personification of raw lust.

How could Holly Montag possibly resist?

Holly, who starred on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here after her sister Heidi Montag and her husband Spencer Pratt infamously bailed, reportedly began a romance with fellow contestant Sanjaya Malakar during her stint in Costa Rica.

What's more, The Hills "star" and the former American Idol "star" are keeping the romance alive after leaving the show! They're going on a vacation!

"Holly and Sanjaya are headed to [the Hawaiian island of] Kauai tomorrow morning so she can meet his parents," an insider tells Life & Style Weekly.

"It's getting serious!"

We can only hope this lasts, if only so Speidi can try to make Holly and Sanjaya's wedding all about them. And so Sanjaya can sing at the reception.

Take cover, Tinseltown: Sanjaya Malakar is on his way!

The former American Idol finalist has put a "For Sale" sign on his family's suburban Seattle home.

People magazine reports that Dennis Fletcher, the realtor brokering the deal, is making no secret of the property's resident star.

"I've probably spent, so far, about $2,500, $2,600," the real estate agent said of his marketing campaign that includes Sanjaya's autographed picture on the house flier and a Sanjaya song clip on its site listing.

So, with Malakar making his way to Hollywood, just one question remains: What the heck will he do there? We've got a few suggestions:

  • The Dillon Panthers need a water boy on Friday Night Lights. We're guessing they'd rather have Sanjaya than Adam Sandler.
  • Four words: High School Musical extra.
  • Consider typecasting on Bionic Woman: Portray a cute cyborg who people like only because you're Indian, have silly hair and can sort of carry a tune.
  • Have sex with Lindsay Lohan.

Sanjaya Malakar doesn't seem to know his sister too well.

After being asked about his music - which the crazy-haired former American Idol contestant told The Daily News he wants to "legitimize" - the topic turned to his much better looking sibling.

Will we ever see Shyamali Malakar nude in a magazine?

Nope, Sanjaya claims. He went on to say, "she was never the type to flaunt it."

Really? Makes us wonder where Malakar was when his sister's chest was bobbing up and down in the audience of Idol during a taping this season? Or if he simply missed this photo the last time he read The Hollywood Gossip.

Naked truth be told, Sanjaya, there is no "type to flaunt it." Amanda Beard is an Olympic champion and she's nude in this month's Playboy.

Jennifer Toof is a former Flavor of Love girl and she's getting her ass slapped on film left and right.

Who are we to judge? Or compare the decisions of these women? If a nude Christina Aguilera wants to prance around her house on Sundays, we're not gonna stop her.

And you shouldn't speak for Shyamali on the topic, either. Let your sister make her own choices in life.

Blake Lewis and Jordin Sparks get along very well.

But the American Idol champ had always named her favorite male artists as John Mayer and Justin Timberlake. In an interview with The Associated Press this week, though, she pointed to a former contestant from this season of the FOX reality show.

Sorry, Blake. It was Sanjaya Malakar.

"He had so much guts," Sparks said. "He had so much strength. He got a lot of criticism, but for him to go out on that stage and hold his head high ... I really look up to him for that. He's just an amazing kid."

Seems like somewhat strong praise for Sanjaya. Although his sister, Shyamali Malakar, ain't too shabby.

Sparks said "the point of the show ... is to keep who you like, who you want to see the next week. Sanjaya gave that to the people."

We can't argue with that. Most men, however, would prefer it Antonella Barba nude had given a little somethin somethin to them.

Sparks and Malakar will sing with other finalists on the American Idol concert tour, which kicks off July 6 in Sunrise, Fla., and wraps up Sept. 23 in Manchester, N.H.

After that, Sparks says she intends to "hit the studio very hard" to finish work on her upcoming solo album, which "has to be out before Thanksgiving." Her main goal, she says, is to record "encouraging" tracks.

"I want people to roll down the windows and blast the music loud. ... It will be just a Jordin album and, hopefully, people will like it."

For reasons unknown, Sanjaya Malakar was invited to the White House Correspondence Dinner a couple weeks ago.

Perhaps People magazine, which included the American Idol reject among its table in invitees (along with Project Runway star Tim Gunn) lost a bet of some sort.

Who knows. No matter the reason for his invite, Sanjaya's presence did lead to a couple of humorous picture - and we're not even referring to the one of Shyamali Malakar nude playing a guitar.

Instead, here's a shot of Sanjaya and his mon, Jillian Blyth. They look nice, normal, loving. And they very well may be. She's also high as a kite, we're sure.

Then, there's Malakar and Valerie Bertinelli, the random actress and ex-wife of Eddie Van Halen who's back in the news for wanting to lose weight. And let's not forget about Teri Hatcher stuffed into the middle of this photo.

We've gotta hand it to Sanjaya. Sure, he'd probably prefer to be with Hatcher's Desperate Housewives co-star Eva Longoria instead. But for an untalented singer, the guy is doing pretty well for himself.

In case you thought we were joking about Jillian Blyth being busted for marijuana, here's some visual evidence of the pot smoker in action.

Yes, the mom of Sanjaya Malakar might be on more drugs than Paula Abdul. She's already served jail time for growing the ganja - and could be in more hot legal bong water after this photo of her was snapped at a Hollywood party in March.

Sanjaya Picture

In the shot, obtained by the National Enquirer and initially posted by TMZ, Blyth appears to be holding a bong and a lighter. According to a source cited by the Enquirer, the 41-year-old Blyth could be in more trouble if this picture suggests that "she's continuing to break the law," especially because, says the paper, she was sentenced under 12 months of "community supervision" as part of her felony conviction on drug charges in 2005 that required her to be drug-free.

No wonder Shyamali Malakar nude photos have hit the Internet - Jillian's daughter is trying to attract attention away from her criminal mother.

On the other hand, says the Enquirer, Blyth's legal case was officially closed last year. So she may not be in danger of joining Jason Wahler in the slammer.

When American Idol judge Simon Cowell heard about the habit of Sanjaya's mom, though, he reportedly said: "That's horrific pot smoking. Just terrible form."

Britney Spears has been a dance class fanatic since leaving rehab, but so far, she's kept fans guessing about when she'll make her big comeback performance.

The mystery widened when the head case and commando queen reportedly pulled the plug on a show in Los Angeles late on Wednesday night.

Nude Britney Spears

The mother of Jayden James was expected to take the stage with her band, the M & Ms, at the hip L.A. club Forty Deuce, where she infamously swapped costumes with dancers in December, but Brit failed to show.

On the club's website, boss Ivan Kane says:

"[Britney Spears] came on stage during rehearsals, looking very hot, with four back-up dancers and sang three songs. They ran through the set several times, the choreography was smokin', and she sounded great."

But Spears decided that she needed more time to rehearse for her comeback show, leaving devotees hanging.

A handful of semi-secret shows are lined up for Los Angeles next week, so stay tuned... unless the former Mrs. Kevin Federline nixes those too.

In other Britney news, Star magazine is reporting another possible business collaboration - this time with booted American Idol joke Sanjaya Malakar.

The magazine claims Britney Spears is eager to work with Idol's hair-raising, tone-deaf sensation. Now that's a good way to resurrect an ailing career.

"Britney started watching American Idol when she was in rehab," Star quotes a source. "She became a huge Sanjaya fan and thinks the two of them can make beautiful music together."

Just give us a nude Shyamali Malakar strumming a guitar, thanks. Sounds to The Gossip like Sanjaya planted this idea in the press in an attempt to eke out a 16th minute of fame.

It may seem a bit early, but Time magazine is already gathering votes for its 100 Most Influential People of the Year issue.

And, no, Spencer Pratt is not on the list.

Perez Hilton Body

But Stephen Colbert is. The humorous talk show host is current leading reader voting. It's not hard to see why. Aside from having an ice cream flavor named after him, the guy is putting people On Notice left and right. Watch out.

Sadly, no one on The Hollywood Gossip staff will be in the issue. Not this year, at least. But a fellow celebrity gossip monger is currently listed in the top 20. We can't figure out the reason, but Time is under the impression that Perez Hilton influences people. Maybe. Stupid people, that is.

Meanwhile, Sanjaya Malakar is ranked above Barack Obama. This could be the most depressing news we find all day.

As we said, though, it's early.

A lot can change as 2007 progresses. But you can bet Sacha Baron Cohen will be on there no matter what. Borat affects us on a daily basis.
