Gone from The View, Star Jones is desperate to remain in the spotlight somehow. While an attack on Rosie O'Donnell is never out of the question, the former host is focusing on the National Enquirer for now.

But just look at her here! Aside from sporting more make up - at a pool mind you - than most women wear to weddings, Brooke Hogan looks ancient. We know she can't sing, but can't she at least act her age?

So maybe a nude Winona Ryder picture isn't your style. After all, the actress did steal stuff once.

But what about Selma Blair? The Cruel Intentions co-star hos joined Ryder, and a slew of celebrities, in a new Marc Jacobs line that supports the NYU School of Medicine's Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group.

Forget making love in an elevator for a minute, Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler has more pressing matters on his mind:

Slowly, but surely - and, hopefully, soberly - Mel Gibson is stepping back into the spotlight.

First, the Jew hater walked his daughter down the aisle. Now, he's been seen and heard visiting two towns in Oklahoma and a film festival in Texas last week to screen a rough cut of his weird film, Apocalypto.
