Amy Sussman/Getty ImagesIn the ongoing federal investigation into Heath Ledger's drug overdose pretty much anyone you think of has been interviewed: the mother of his baby, actress Michelle Williams, his doctors. Bodyguards, housekeepers, business associates, even the masseuse who discovered his body. The one person who isn't willing to cooperate? Mary-Kate Olson. She's the first person who the masseuse called when she saw something was wrong, and instead of phoning 911, Mary-Kate rang up her personal bodyguards and sent them to Ledger's New York apartment.
Mary-Kate and Ledger had something of a secret friendship, and people wonder if the once-rehabbed Full House twin has something to do with the pills he overdosed on but wasn't prescribed. This week Mary-Kate has requested immunity from prosecution before cooperating, but if she refuses to answer they could potentially obtain a subpoena.
"Mary-Kate Olsen had nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger's home or his body, and she does not

Alberto Rodriguez/Getty ImagesWe've always suspected that MTV's The Hills was fake-at least the all-too-convenient run-ins between arch rivals Lauren and Heidi. Well Audrina has set the record straight on her new website just in time for season four to begin on August 18. You see, according to Audrina's bio, she was cast on the show!Read More »from Audrina admits The Hills is fakeâ€”she was cast on the show we wonâ€™t be watching this season
"Living a stone's throw away from the MTV production of The Hills, Audrina was spotted sunbathing by the pool and asked by a producer if she would like to join the cast. She happily accepted her role as the dear friend of Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag in what was sure to be the beginning of her enticing career.
Audrina Patridge made her small screen debut in 2005 as the fun and outgoing friend on the cast of the hit MTV series, The Hills, a reality show which documents the lives of four young girls trying to make a mark for themselves in the fast pace, energetic city of Los Angeles."
Secret's out! Will you still watch the new season? [Audrinaxo]

Frank Micelotta/Getty ImagesIt's true. Oprah Winfrey is the wealthiest TV personality in America, earning $385 million a year from television alone. That's $1,054,794.52 a day. Not bad if you call in sick!

Frazer Harrison/Getty ImagesMiley Cyrus hosted last night's Teen Choice awards where she picked up three trophies for choice TV comedy, comic actress and female artist all while her new album rests at #1 on the Billboard charts. Apparently the release of three more sexy photos from her cell phone (yes, her cell phone hacker is at it again) aren't about to keep away her young fans.
While gazing at Miley's exposed midriff and panties, several questions come to mind:
- Are the pictures definitely of Miley?
- Why does she take so many half-naked pictures and who is she sending them to?
- Is it typical nowadays for 15-year-old girls to take and send provocative pictures of themselves to people?
- Does this person really keep hacking into her cell phone or could the photo leak somehow be deliberate?
- Why is it so may successful Disney girls rebel against their wholesome images?

Three-week-old twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline are the latest additions to the Brangelina clan (Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2 , make up the rest of the power posse) and they are already taking the world by storm! In a joint venture, People magazine and UK's Hello! shelled out a whopping $14 million for exclusive rights to the photos-more than double what any baby photos have ever made. Parents Angelina and Brad are donating the money from the photos to charity-very awesome. So… what do you think of these expensive twins?

For a fleeting moment we thought you were cute on Newlyweds. Yeah, we bought into your whole "is this chicken or fish" blonde ditz routine. For a minute. By the time you broke your ex-hubby's heart (Nick Lachey, are you out there? Are you still dating wannabe-celeb Vanessa Minnillo?) and were traipsing around the set of Dukes of Hazzard with Johnny Knoxville we were over it. Your hideous attempts at fashion and beauty lines coupled with that Pizza Hut commercial with the Nancy Sinatra spin-off-"These Bites Were Made for Poppin'"-were really the last straw. Oh and we'll never really forgive you for helping ponchos and Uggs rise to fame.
Now you're shoving your new country album, Do You Know, down our faces and it sucks. You're being booed off the stage. Dallas Cowboy fans think you've jinxed their team by dating quarterback Tony Romo. You're starting beef with one of country music's biggest stars, Carrie Underwood, because she's a vegetarian who once dated your

Read More »from Expose is reuniting... but weâ€™d rather see another '80s act take the stage
Hey everybody, Expose is back together! You know, Expose… the girl group from 20 years ago? It's not that we don't remember their hits, "Point of No Return," "Come Go with Me," "Seasons Change" and "I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me (well, after watching a few videos on YouTube we "ohhh yeahhhh'd" two out of four), but if any all-female band from the '80s was reuniting we have a few that would rank higher on our list, to say the least. The Go-Gos, Bananarama, the Bangles… so many goodies to choose from!
Anyways, see if Expose's video for "Come Go With Me" brings back any memories, then let us know which '80s girl group you'd still pay money to see in concert. [Jezebel]

If you haven't heard about The Montauk Monster yet, let us get you up to date with our latest obsession. A unidentifiable dead creature washed up on the beach in Long Island, New York earlier this week that set locals and the internet ablaze with a lot of questions and few answers. Many thought it was photoshopped but multiple eyewitnesses confirmed its existence with photographs. Some said it was the product of viral marketing, potentially for a program on Cartoon Network, but that one was shot down. Oh yeah, and Plum Island Animal Disease Center is just down the road. Pretty soon know-it-all posters on Gawker.com, the site that reported the initial sighting, were claiming to know the origin of this special: a sea turtle without its shell (but they don't have teeth), a dog (but what about the bizarre webbed looking feet), a raccoon (overall size and body are not spot on). Several New Yorkers claim they saw the mysterious creature alive dating months back!
So what is this thing andRead More »from The Montauk Monster: I want to believe (especially after seeing the X-Files movie)

Finally a guest chef on Today had the guts to do what we-and probably everyone who has ever worked with her-have wanted to do for years: tell Kathie Lee Gifford to shut up. Sure, he may never be asked back on the show, but wasn't it worth it? [Jossip]

We were bopping along to Chris Brown's new hit, "Forever," when we noticed something funny-the unforgettable slogan of Doublemint gum, "Double your pleasure/double your fun." What we didn't realize? The song is actually an ad commissioned by Wrigley's. The reason we didn't know this is because the gum makers only revealed their sponsorship after "Forever" became a top 10 hit.Read More »from No way! Chris Brownâ€™s latest hit is actually a Wrigleyâ€™s Doublemint ad!
Chris Brown isn't the only singer they've enlisted to create audio ads (and later, extended versions made for radio and retail purposes). Ne-Yo will be taking on Big Red's "Kiss a little longer" while Dancing with the Stars regular-turned-country singer Julianne Hough recorded a version of Juicy Fruit's "The taste is gonna move ya." It's safe to say this information completely ruined Chris Brown's track for us, and we will strategically avoid Wrigley's upcoming jingles-turned-music. Unless you're down for subliminal messaging, consider yourselves warned!
Do you think what Wrigley's is doing is sneaky? Will you
