They're baaaaack! Or she is, anyway. He's here for the first time! Madonna brings 13-month-old David Banda on his first transcontinental journey to New York City on Sunday.

The singer, who is planning to adopt the Malawian child, a la Brangelina, is reportedly visiting town to promote her latest children's book, Too Good to Be True, and her upcoming televised concert special.

At times like this, we can only wonder, what would Borat say?

Nothing mends a celebrity rift like meds a baby.

Katie Holmes seemed to forget the firestorm of controversy created by her fiancee with regard to Brooke Shields this weekend when she ran into Tom Cruise's former abuse-target at a private party in Los Angeles.

That Hat Sucks

Katie's face lit up as she gazed upon Brooke's daughter, Grier, and the love-fest (however staged) continued throughout the conversation.

Whether this is a public charade or not, it looks like most of the ill will concerning Cruise's bashing of and subsequent apology to Brooke about her use of medication for her post-partum depression seem to have melted away.

Hey, there's no such thing as a chemical imbalance. Let's just leave it at that and move on, shall we? Are playdates with Suri Cruise and Grier far behind? One can only hope.

Paul McCartney has four children. One daughter turned three years old over the weekend.

The other wants to kill her ex-step mother, Heather Mills.

Heather Mills' Bad Hair

We'll start with the non-homicidal news: At the third birthday of their daughter Beatrice in East Sussex, England, the feuding couple played nicely together, according to published accounts.

It was like they were Sara Evans and Craig Schelske in court.

However, McCartney and Mills left separately, with Paul taking away Beatrice in a chauffeur-driven car around 10 minutes before Heather took off with some leftover birthday cake, Britai's Hello! magazine states.

One mother, whose son happened to be at the children's center as the party was wrapping up, told Australia's Melbourne Herald Sun newspaper:

"Bea looked lovely and seemed to be having a wonderful time. If I did not know what had been going on in their marriage in the last few months, I would never have guessed."

Not having as wonderful a time as McCartney and Mills go through a divorce? Sir Paul's adult daughter, Stella. In response to Heather's accusation that the former Beatle choked his late wife (and Stella's mother), Linda, the older McCartney said:

"I can't believe what she's doing, I'm going to kill her ... She's been a manipulative cow from day one. The cow won't be happy until she destroys all of us - and our memories of our mother."

It's hard to argue with any of that. Or not to assume the ears of Anna Nicole Smith were burning when she heard the words "manipulative cow."

After a public divorce, the most important thing a celebrity can do is get right back on the PR horse again. So it goes for Whitney Houston.

The incredible singer made her first high-profile public appearance since the recent split from husband Bobby Brown, as she was toasted as belle of the ball Saturday night during a benefit in Beverly Hills that raised more than $70 million for juvenile diabetes research.

The Brown/Houston Family

"I feel great," said Houston.

The singer was escorted to the 17th Carousel of Hope Ball by one of the evening's honorees, her record producer Clive Davis, who told USA Today:

"She's been through emotional trauma, and everybody's rooting for her ... We're gonna make a killer album."

Houston sat at the main table with Halle Berry â€" who herself is a diabetic â€" and the actress's boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

Elsewhere at the gala, which was hosted by Jay Leno, were Brooke Shields, Teri Hatcher, Hilary Duff, Kristin Davis, Sharon Stone, Minnie Driver, Sidney Poitier and couple Warren Beatty and Annette Bening.

Houston didn't sing at the event - but the evening's featured entertainer let loose. Katharine McPhee ditcher signature number, "Over the Rainbow," in favor of Houston's "I Have Nothing." Houston's acknowledged the tribute by nodding at this season's American Idol runner-up during the performance.

"It's her first big appearance since the breakup," McPhee, 22, said about Houston. "I would love to sing with her, but unfortunately all eyes are on me."

Two weeks ago, Houston filed for divorce from Brown after 14 years of marriage. The couple had separated on Sept. 8. Not surprisingly, rumored Brown mistress, Karrine Steffans, was absent from this evening.

According to TMZ, Nicole Richie passed out at the ever-popular Hyde nightclub early Sunday morning.

We're told it occurred just before 2 a.m., when Richie passed out and fell to the floor. We're guessing she hadn't eaten any food in some time. As in, September.

A Harlow Smile

In any case, the "actress" reportedly took a spill, after which an employee approached Richie and her friends and said he was calling 911.

Sources say they told the employee not to make the call and that they would take Richie to a hospital. The friends then carried Samuel Plouchart's malnourished girlfriend out of the club through the back door.

It was not reported if Richie went to the hospital.

Before her spectacular collapse, Richie reportedly hung out for awhile with Lindsay Lohan inside da club.

Lohan had her own bizarre tale early Sunday morning on a street in Hollywood, which may or may not have involved Rumer Willis, but almost definitely involved boozing and sex. Pretty safe bet, no?

Late last week, Richie's reps confirmed that the Simple Life star entered a rehab clinic to determine why she hasn't gained weight. Richie has looked shockingly thin for, like, ever.

That said, one can only wonder why she is partying at Hyde. First of all, what is so great about Hyde that everyone has to go there at all times? Oh, and there's the fact that Nicole was, you know, in f*&king rehab. The girl probably gets wasted if she smells alcohol. Real smart move. She makes K-Fed look brilliant.

Richie's rep confirmed that her client was at Hyde for approximately 20 minutes, but denies that she collapsed. Sure thing, sweetheart.

The man, the myth... the deadbeat.

That's Kevin Federline for you, and there can be no substitute. Below, EW sat down with the rapping aspirant and talked with him about his new album, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, not doing "the whole high school thing," and being "the champion." Good God.

Kevin Federline Shirtless

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First things first â€" can you describe the sound of your debut rap album, Playing With Fire (out October 31)?
KEVIN FEDERLINE: It's like an upbeat club record. Everything on it, you can just pretty much dance to it. It says a lot, in a fun way. It speaks for itself.

EW: And what are your expectations for it?
K-FED: I'm just looking to put it out there and get some feedback on it. I want people to listen to it as a whole instead of just one song at a time.

EW: Why'd you name it Playing With Fire?
K-FED: Because I feel like in my life, in the last couple of years, with everything that's gone on, that's how I feel â€" like I'm playing with fire. [It could also mean] things I say on there are playing with fire, the press is toying with me, so they're playing with fire â€" it goes all different ways.

EW: How do you think your life is going to change when the album comes out?
K-FED: I haven't really thought about that. I'm just really more excited to go out and perform and learn how to become this artist... I'm trying to be really focused right now. I want to make sure everything is right, that I don't go out there and deliver something that I don't want to be delivered.

EW: What'd Britney say when she first heard you had signed with a label?
K-FED: She was happy with that. When I got the actual album artwork and the first CD, I took it home the other night. She was very happy. She didn't expect me to bring home an album three weeks before it came out.

EW: We just saw you on CSI, guest starring in the October 12 episode. Do you want to do anything like that again?
K-FED: If it's the right part. I love the character [a thug] they gave me.

EW: Okay, on to the Personality Test! Finish this sentence: If your life was a drinking game, everyone would do a shot when...
K-FED: My name comes out of their mouths.

EW: Which name: Kevin Federline or K-Fed?
K-FED: All of the above. Anything related.

EW: So you think people talk about you a lot?
K-FED: I'm the most talked about of anyone over the last couple of years. I think it would be a good drinking game â€" I would get half the world drunk and the other half would have a buzz.

EW: What would your American Idol audition song be?
K-FED: You're going to love this one: [Justin Timberlake's] "SexyBack."

EW: Really? Why?
K-FED: I don't know â€" it's just what came to mind when you asked me.

EW: But you'd have to perform this for the judges.
K-FED: That would be good!

EW: Is it a Justin Timberlake thing, or you just think you're bringing sexy back?
K-FED: Just sexy back. That's all I gotta say.

EW: Do you think you'd win the competition if you sang that song?
K-FED: I'm the champion, of course.

EW: Do you even like Justin Timberlake?
K-FED: Yeah, we're cool. It's a good song. That's why I'd do it. It's No. 1 right now. If it was Jay-Z, and he was No. 1, then I'd be telling you that.

EW: Okay, next question: In high school, I was...
K-FED: A short-term student. I wound up going to get my GED and stuff. I didn't really do the whole high school thing.

Are they together? Aren't they together? Will we continue to write about Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn, even when we have no real news on their status as a couple?

We don't know; we don't know; and of course!


After nearly 60 days apart, Aniston arrived in London last week to see her possible boyfriend. On the night of October 27, Us Magazine has learned the actors shared the penthouse suite at a London hotel, where the pair ordered room service (steak, veal and red wine).

(Does that mean the waiting staff reported such detailed, important news to the publication? Makes David Hans Schmidt look like a role model.)

The trip was the first time the on-off-on again couple had seen each other since their rumored break up. On Saturday, Vinnifer took in a matinee performance of the musical Wicked, then returned to the hotel.

Aniston, who once decried reports of a romance with Vaughn as false on Oprah, returned to the show earlier this month to deny a split. But various outlets have raised a skeptical eye: quoted an Aniston "insider" declaring the actress' attempts at keeping the romance alive a "face-saving measure"; People magazine, in its recent cover story on Aniston, quoted a Vaughn "insider" as saying the couple had had a "cooling off" period.

Others simply speculate that her decision to discuss her relationship with Vaughn is to boost DVD sales of The Breakup. Ouch! Talk about cynical. We just hope Jennifer is happy.

And that maybe one day she joins The Pussycat Dolls on stage.

First, the Dustin Diamond sex tape rocked everyone's innocent, Screech-like world.

Now, the man responsible for publicizing such sordid behavior is back - and he's got nude Marica Cross photos to show off.

Indeed, Phoenix-based agent David Hans Schmidt claims he has naked photos of the Desperate Housewives star.

Of course, he also claims he has a life, but it's based on such information as the red-haired actress' "carpet does match the curtains."

While this would mean Lindsay Lohan has competition for the Firecrotch team captain, it also means Schmidt is a complete loser.

The waste of space says he is representing the owner of a garbage hauling firm that found over 200 personal pictures of Cross - including her showering in the buff outside - in her garbage. Even though the actress is demanding their return, arguing that they are the copyrighted property of her and her husband, Tom Mahoney, porn king Schmidt says that the pictures "were not stolen."

"When you throw something away, you forfeit that property," he said.

Of course, Schmidt is not all a bad guy. He claims he also has the actress' tax returns, but "out of respect for Ms. Cross," won't discuss how much she makes.

That's sweet. Out of respect for our younger audience, we won't refer to Schmidt but all the names we'd like to. But we will say he makes Stavros Niarchos seem like an important part of society.

We've tried to come up with a few Halloween costume ideas for our loyal fans and readers. We hope the Nicole Richie suggestion was helpful, for example, but you'd have needed to cease eating 18 months ago in order to ensure its most realistic effect.

Lindsay Lohan From Behind

Now, Bill Simmons (aka The Sports Guy), ESPN's online columnist, has his own recommendation for Halloween.

We'll let him explain the Lindsay Lohan costume in his own words:

Wear a red wig and look completely strung out for about 30 minutes. Then go to the bathroom, fix your makeup, stick a pair of grapefruits in your bra and come back out looking like a million bucks.

Thirty minutes later, go back in the bathroom, mess your makeup up and take the grapefruits out. And just keep rotating the two looks all night and confusing the hell out of every guy there.

Sounds about right to us. Also find the person at the party with the weirdest name and hire your own Rumer Willis for the evening.

The tricked-out skanks with no self-esteem girls vying to join PCD (a.k.a. The Pussycat Dolls) are not about to let a little vomit stop them from achieving their career goals. And God bless them for that.

During taping of the new reality show, The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll, a nasty stomach bug tears its way through the intestinal tracts of hopefuls, prompting the series' producers to consider shutting down filming for the day.

However, the ladies weren't having it, showing their dedication to joining the all-girl group by continuing the task at hand, and merely excusing themselves to hurl off to the side when necessary. Wow. That kind of dedication would make Nicole Richie proud.

While we wish the Dolls could convince Vanessa Minnillo to join them full time, we're glad the audition process is moving along nicely... aside from the whole virus thing.

Expect all the drama to unfold when the PCD reality show hits CW in the early 2007. And expect PCD's next single to be raunchier than the previous one.
