“Jake and Vienna have split,” the former couple’s rep said in a press statement. “They appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time.”

No official reason was given for the broken engagement, but rumor has it Jake Pavelka may have been experiencing some jealousy pains. TMZ.com claims sources have told them Jake thought fiancée Vienna Girardi had allegedly been cheating on him with Greek actor Gregory Michael.

Then again, we’ve seen a rumors circulating out there that it was Jake who was actually the one suspected of stepping out. Maybe Jake’s decision to take the gig on Dancing With the Stars just put too much distance in the relationship while it was still in the early stages.

Whatever the cause of Jake and Vienna’s break up, we kind of hope he might try to hook up with rejected The Bachelor contestant Ali – the girl we thought he should have picked in the first place!

Perez Hilton Advertiser Ditches After Miley Cyrus Upskirt Photo Controversy

ABC has pulled advertising for The View from PerezHilton.com after gossip blogger Perez Hilton sparked outrage by posting a Miley Cyrus upskirt photo that appeared to show the 17-year-old not wearing underwear.

Perez Hilton posted the Miley Cyrus upskirt photo on his Twitter feed, warning his fans not to click on the link to the photo if they were “easily offended.” The image showed Miley Cyrus awkwardly exiting a car with her legs spread and seemingly not wearing panties.

Because Miley Cyrus is underage, the photo sparked outrage from many who claimed Perez Hilton was guilty of peddling ‘child porn’ by posting the photo. Hilton shot back with a video response on his website saying Miley Cyrus would be a “moron” for not wearing underwear and he would not be stupid enough to post a photo showing her private parts. He claims other photos taken at the same time clearly show she was not going commando under her short skirt.

Perez Hilton did, however, remove the photograph. Unfortunately for Hilton, the whole thing had already apparently gotten too out of hand for at least one of his advertising sponsors, according to FoxNews.com.

ABC reportedly pulled advertisements for The View on PerezHilton.com in the wake of the Miley Cyrus upskirt photo controversy. ABC has not commented so far on the ad pull.

MTV Networks, another of Perez Hilton’s sponsors, doesn’t seem fazed so far over the child porn accusations against Hilton. Their advertisements on PerezHilton.com for the new TV Land show Hot in Cleveland are still running.

Last, but not least, in what can only be considered a huge suck-up move, Perez Hilton posted a glowing mention of Miley Cyrus’ new single “Liberty Walk” on his website on Wednesday morning. So lame.

Producer Laurie David Denies Al Gore Affair

Producer Laurie David is vehemently denying a Star magazine report of an Al Gore affair with her that ruined his marriage. Al and Tipper Gore announced earlier this month they were separating after 40 years of wedlock. Star magazine claims an affair between Al Gore and Laurie David caused the split.

In the new issue of Star magazine, which hits stands on Wednesday, the tabloid claims producer Laurie David is the other woman behind Al and Tipper Gore’s separation.

Star has learned that Al has been having an affair with Laurie, who divorced Seinfeld creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David in 2007 amidst reports she was cheating with the caretaker of their Martha’s Vineyard summer home,” a statement on StarMagazine.com says.

“Al and Laurie went from friends to lovers,” an insider allegedly told Star. “It couldn’t be avoided.” Laurie David worked with Al Gore on the 2006 Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth.

Laurie David denies any such affair ever happened, saying the Star report “is completely, patently false.” In a statement to Time.com, David said the rumor of an affair is “completely and totally untrue. I adore Al and Tipper and consider them part of my family. I’m in a committed relationship and couldn’t be happier.”

The National Enquirer, meanwhile, has their own theory. According to multiple anonymous sources – naturally – the Enquirer claims it was Tipper Gore’s jealous rage that tore them apart. However, a source allegedly told the Enquirer there has “never been any proof that Al had affairs.”

* Correction: The previous photo included in this post was assumed to be a public use PR photo from the the International Documentary Association Awards in 2006, showing Al Gore with Laurie and Larry David. We have been informed it was not a public PR photo by the photographer. Thus, it has been removed out of courtesy. The original photo can still be seen here.

Perez Hilton Miley Cyrus Upskirt Photo Not Child Porn He Says

Gossip monger Perez Hilton of PerezHilton.com has responded to the controversy over a Miley Cyrus upskirt photo he posted by saying the pic didn’t show anything. The photo, which appears to show underage teen Miley Cyrus not wearing any underwear, sparked accusations Perez Hilton was guilty of posting child porn.

In a video response on his website to what he calls a “fake controversy,” Perez Hilton says it “seems like the whole world is thinking I posted a photo of Miley’s vagina without underwear on. Do you think Miley is that stupid to be out in public without panties?”

Hilton, who does a whole gross Basic Instinct mockery thing sans pants in the video, says Miley Cyrus is “not a moron” and neither is he. “Do you think I’m stupid enough to post a photo of Miley if she’s not wearing any underwear down there?”

“Sure, I like to be controversial but I don’t want to go to jail,” Hilton says. “People, snap out of it!”

Hilton claims other photos from the same time frame show Miley Cyrus was “clearly wearing underwear.” Hilton says he only posted the photo to show how “unladylike” Cyrus was acting.

First, we have to ask, if there was nothing wrong with posting the photo – why did Perez Hilton take it down after people started accusing him of trafficking in child porn? Second, Miley Cyrus is still a teenager – even if she was wearing undies, taking or posting photos snapped under her skirt is still wrong. We still consider that child porn, whether the law does or not.

Then again, we just think that’s pretty much wrong no matter who it is. Yes, even if it’s Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears flashing their goods. Obviously, Perez Hilton’s taste level is vastly different than ours.
