i'm guessing since Shawn Johnson kicked ass and won DWTS we won't be seeing any news on that whatsoever. But had she lost TMZ would have been all over it. Not sure what it is about Harvey not being able to "man" up and admit when he's been beatdown by a young lady. First Carrie, now Shawn!! F off TMZ!!!

Now that's the kind of FIRST comment I enjoy... it might be the ramblings of a meth-induced haze, but nonetheless - good job, MORFIDITE.

Who invited that ugly limey to the finale. She is nothing but a sleasy money grabbing bitch. Simon is so much better off without her. She got her mansion now leave hottie alone.

Here that annoying sound in the background? That's the constant background sound of LA. Some stupid b*tch having some inane conversation on the cell phone. Nobody ever shuts up but nobody really has anything interesting to say.

Terri is a great gal, a real shame. I don't know anyone who would want to hurt her. Simon did not treat her very well during their relationship. I've know Terri a long time and we've spent many a long night together talking about Simon, stardom and life.
