"Idol" Wannabe Goes Topless -- And Strips, Too?


Every "American Idol" seems to have a skin scandal, and this year's involves pretty guy David Hernandez, a gay strip club, and a big trove of half-nude pics of David tending bar.

Hernandez worked a bartender at a gay club and the saucy snaps of that gig have landed on VoteForTheWorst.com. And today, the manager of a strip club called Dick's Cabaret in Glendale, Ariz. tells the AP that Hernandez performed fully nude and did lap dances for the mostly male clientele at Dick's -- and "made good money" to boot.

No word if he'll face the fate of Season Three's Frenchie Davis -- or last year's Antonella Barba. FOX tells TMZ, "We don't comment on the personal lives of the show participants."

Paris' Guru EXPOSED!


Paris GuruSo you didn't think Paris Hilton was phony enough? Her "Guru" that has supposedly changed her life is actually a Hollywood actor.

His name is Maxie Santillan. He's starred in tons of films and TV shows including "My Name is Earl" and "Pirates of the Caribbean." According to IMDB, Maxie's latest projects are all in "post production" so clearly he has enough free time to whore it up for Paris.

BTW, Maxie's MySpace profile quote makes it clear -- he's the perfect spiritual guide for Paris. It reads, "Burbank can kiss my a**." Paris & the Guru: Click to launch

The Hulk's Sexy Body Slam?


Check out Hulk Hogan's reported mistress, Christiane Plante, doing her best MySpace/Facebook pose. Plante is a former close friend of Brooke Hogan ... but then she went all, 'ooh, I'm totally gonna hook up with your hot old dad.' And, as you may have guessed, the friendship went downhill from there.

Brooke lashed out against Plante in a rant on her MySpace blog (which has since been removed) stating, "When your best friend and one of your closest family members that you have loved unconditionally since your first day on this earth, betrays you together, you could MAYBE find it in yourself to forgive one day...but you will NEVER forget the hurt they caused you and how it hurt the people who mean the most to you."

And then she probably removed Plante from her top friends.

Ashlee Simpson, Drunk or Dingbat?
