Long before Jeremy Piven was a well-known, hilarious, Emmy-winning actor... he was still a hilarious actor. All of us at T.H. Gossip are big fans, so we thought it would be fitting for the Entourage star to join our Classic Celebrity Pictures gallery. It's a pretty exclusive club, you know. Christie Brinkley is in it!

Anyway, here's Piven, circa 1994, as Droz in the frat-boy classic PCU.

The basic formula for the "money shot" (in paparazzi terms, anyway â€" sorry, Jenna Jameson) is beaches, bikinis and babies. And the little tikes are gaining steam.

Consider the astonishing $4 million People reportedly shelled out for the first exclusive pictures of Shiloh, the pouty newborn of superstar couple Brangelina.

Blue Ivy Carter Pics

And while no one has secured shots of Suri Cruise, that hasn't stopped celebrity snappers from camping outside TomKat's house in hopes of snagging a shot.

NOTE: T.H. Gossip staff members prefer flying over the Cruise mansion in a helicopter over hiding in their bushes personally.

Regardless of methods, the frenzy surrounding celebrity babies is off the hook these days. You can't escape it. The kids of stars are all over the grocery stores and news stands and Internets (you're welcome)!

"The market is different now. There are so many tabloids and so many photographers that there's no money in just taking a celebrity photo," Frank Rohmer, president of photo agency X17, said in an interview with MSNBC.

Some fetch bigger prices than others, of course. Photographers say there isn't much of a market for some stars' and their children, like Hugh Jackman and son Oscar Maximillian. He's a good actor, sure, but hardly a tabloid draw. We're surprised that there's even a category about him on our site, to be perfectly honest with you.

Forget STDs for a moment, Paris Hilton has bigger, less itchy problems.

Paris Pose

Despite a series of hype and promotion that seemed to go on all summer, the album "Paris" had a dismal first week, with just 75,000 copies sold in the United States. It's projected to sell a measly 30,000 in its second week.

We don't understand why. Hilton herself loved it, after all.

Aside from her sheer lack of talent, insiders blame the terrible sales on Paris' refusal to go on tour in support of the CD. As the album is hovering near the basement of Billboard's Hot 100 - and we toast the result in glee - Hilton's record label has rushed out a second single called "Turn It Up." It's being turned down on the charts, as well.

"The international people are not inclined to do a big push since she can't back up the album with a tour. Obviously, she can't sing live," said a music expert.

Naturally, Elliot Mintz - Hilton's PR rep and the man with the hardest job in entertainment - responded: "To me, [the album] sounds huge. For a newcomer, this is incredibly impressive."

Sounding huge is a good thing? Perhaps Paris should just stick to karaoke, American Idol style. And disappear from the face of the earth.

Numerous sources confirm that the wondrous Britney Spears is set to renew her wedding vows with disgrace white trash loser worthless human being husband Kevin Federline, the former backup dancer and current aspiring rapper she dubiously married in 2004.

The singer and husband will hold a ceremony this fall, shortly after the birth of their second child, rumored to be entering this cruel world on Halloween. Britney was expected to give birth next month, but Federline let it slip during a recent radio interview that his wife is planning to go into labor on Halloween day.

Kevin Federline Peace

Appearing on DJ Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM show, Federline told the American Idol host that his second child with Spears was due "soon," later blurting out "October 31."

When pressed about his future family plans, the fertile Federline told Seacrest that he's totally "gonna slow down for a little while, I promise," yo.

Just as when Spears birthed son Sean Preston last September 14, his cute little sibling will be arriving via caesarian section.

This is convenient, as it makes it easy for mom to plan when she wishes to crank out her offspring, and for K-Fed to blab about it on the radio. In his defense, though, he may have confused the date with that of his many other kids' birthdays.

As for their renewed vows, the couple will invite hundreds of friends and family, as Britney hopes to show the world she is happily married. Good luck with that! In honor of this occasion, we've posed a close-up shot of Britney before she became a perpetually knocked-up, dark-haired train wreck.

A Pregnant Britney Spears

We're not saying she's ugly nowadays, like some assclowns have... but let's just say sometimes we long for the days of yore.

Working at The Daily Show is obviously a pain-staking task. You've gotta somehow find humor in the words and action of President Bush.

And what do correspondents receive for such hard work? A pat on the back? Mockery from established programs such as Fox News? Critically-acclaimed success in follow-up projects?

For Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, it's been at least the latter.

While neither ex-pupil of Jon Stewart won any Emmy Awards Sunday night (Carell lost out to Tony Shaloub for best comedic actor; but his sitcom, The Office, did win for funniest series), the duo still posed for an extreme close-up at a post-show party:

Beyoncé hates animals. We're not sure what other conclusion to draw.

First, Jay-Z's fiance was renounced - and stalked - by PETA. That absurd organization took exception for her penchant for wearing fur.

Now? A world-renowned expert on reptiles has written an outraged letter to the former Destiny's Child singer, suggesting that she abused an animal on the photo shoot for her new album, "B'day."

Beyonce Fur Coat

We can't wait for Mr. Beyonce's crazy response to this one!

"There was a shot where I held an alligator. It had its mouth taped - that was my bright idea," Knowles recently told a magazine. "He was really cute, but since his mouth was taped he didn't have any way to defend himself. He was upset so he peed on me. That was an experience!"

It was an abusive experience, claims some idiot with too much times on his hands.

"As a specialist in reptile biology and welfare I'm concerned about your posing with a terrified baby alligator for your new album cover," British biologist Clifford Warwick wrote to Beyonce. "Humans and alligators are not natural bedfellows, and the two should not mix at events such as photo-shoots. In my view, doing so is arguably abusive to an animal."

Well, if it's arguable, allow us to take a stance: get a life, biology boy. Kevin Federline does more harm to our eardrums on a weekly basis than the former Destiny's Child singer did to that alligator.

Oh, and it's just an alligator. Go find a real cause.

You know, if Paris Hilton could turn back time, she probably wouldn't have had sex with Cher's son.

Of course, the blonde that puts the "HO" in hotel heiress claims she didn't actually get it on with Elijah Blue Allman, but we'll believe that when Ellen Pompeo eats something.

Like Marilyn Monroe

Allman, however, isn't merely claiming he shagged Hilton (after all, would that make him at all unique?); he went on The Howard Stern Show and said he feared that Paris gave him an STD.

The lead singer and guitarist for the band Deadsy claimed he became so worried after the horizonal jaunt between the sheets that he went downstairs and scrubbed his private parts with a household cleaner, probably Tilex.

Probably. That's typically what Harry Morton uses, post-coital, every time he hangs out with Lindsay Lohan.

Hilton is "not happy" about Allman's comments, says a source, even though he described Hilton as a "sweet girl." Just one that may or may not have poisoned his genitals.

Allman also said he had sex years ago with Hilton's reality show co-star and former best friend, Nicole Richie. We have doubts about that statement, however. How would he even see this waif-like celebrity to know for sure it was her?!?

Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen is denying recent reports that he has split with his wife, Patti Scialfa. An article in the New York Post last week suggested that Springsteen had separated from Scialfa, who sings and plays guitar in his famed E Street Band lineup, and who has been married to the Boss for 18 years.

On his official website, the 56-year-old New Jersey native describes the speculation as unfounded and ugly rumors.

Bruce Springsteen All Smiles

"Our commitment to one another remains as strong as the day we were married. We have built a beautiful family we love and want to protect," he said. "Patti and I have been together for 18 years -- the best 18 years of my life."

Springsteen's statement on his site stressed that he is always hesitant to use his website for "anything personal," but he believed the recent rumors shouldn't pass without comment.

The New York Post claimed that Springsteen had been spending time with a widow of the 11 September attacks in New York, and alleged that he and his wife were "separated, but everyone has been sworn to secrecy."

However, other reports on Friday suggested he and Scialfa had been seen shopping for antiques in Red Bank, N.J., and gave a five-minute impromptu concert when they found an old guitar and mandolin.

Scialfa, 53, has recorded two albums of her own in addition to her work with Springsteen's band. The couple have three teenage children and reside in Colts Neck, N.J.

As big fans of the Boss for as long as we can remember, T.H. Gossip is glad to hear Bruce's denial of these rumors that he is going Peter Sarsgaard on us.

Hey, we just call it like we see it at The Gossip. And for Peter Sarsgaard, the "it" he was accidentally seeing a few months ago involved another woman's private parts.

This story may need some explaining, huh?

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard

Sarsgaard's better, pregnant half, Maggie Gyllenhaal dropped by the Late Show with David Letterman on Friday to talk about her impending baby. Let's just review the exchange that followed:

Dave: "Your husband, is he … How's he handling the pregnancy? Is he nervous? Is he excited? Is he … well, it's a combination of both, of course, isn't it?"

Maggie: "How is he handling it? Well, the very first time that we went to meet our OB, he walked in on her examining someone else."

Dave: "Can you do that? ‘I'm just looking around.'"

Maggie: "He seemed kind of like Ben Stiller in a Ben Stiller movie when he came back in. Yeah, he went to put some quarters in our meter, and he was just this excited new dad, and he rushed into the room, and he saw some other woman's feet in the stirrups. Like Ben Stiller or Hugh Grant, he had that kind of romantic comedy quality."

Dave: "I wish I had thought of that."

Meanwhile, some pregnant woman somewhere is either excitedly sharing her "Peter Sarsgaard saw my cooter" story to friends - or still screaming at the actor to stop looking at her va-jay-jay! (copyright, Miranda Bailey, Grey's Anatomy.)
