James Bond has been a wanted man by countries around the globe for years - except one.

Until now, China had never entertained a portrayer of 007, but Daniel Craig became the first when he walked down the red carpet for the premiere of Casino Royale in the nation yesterday.

Craig and girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell smiled for the cameras and signed autographs for fans throughout the day.

Although the film franchise spans 44 years, it is the first of 21 Bond films to be approved by Chinese censors, which allows fewer than two dozen foreign films to be officially released each year.

"I'm very excited to be in Beijing, and particularly to be able to bring Bond here for the very first time," Craig said.

The censors probably didn't allow reports of Isaac Cohen and his panty raid to be played in the country, either.

Meanwhile, both Craig and co-star Eva Green have been nominated for Britain's version of the Academy Awards, the BAFTAs, with winners due to be announced on Feb. 11 in London.

We knew he was a decent fellow, but it looks like Britney Spears' new man is bringing one of the most elusive and important things into her life:

Underwear.

Merry Christmas From Britney

Model Isaac Cohen â€" who is still dating the troubled singer after a whole three weeks despite rumors that they split up a couple of days ago â€" was recently spotted at the posh lingerie store La Bra.

Rumor has it Kevin Federline used to buy Brit lingerie too. At WalMart.

Cohen said was looking for a Valentine's Day present for his girlfriend, who as we know from recent nearly-nude pictures could certainly use a good la bra.

He walked out with a black silk La Perla tuxedo shirt that set him back $358 â€" as well as seven pairs of panties, reports a source, who added:

"I guess it was one for each day of the week."

While we applaud Isaac for trying to curtail Brit's crotch shot potential, he's going to be disappointed if he thinks he's shacking up with her every night of the week - the girl's got too kids at home, so she's very rarely free!

Oh wait, that's right
. She's seldom seen with Jayden James or Sean Preston. We must have confused her with a normal parent.

Well, that whole Firecrotch and promiscuity thing aside.

Speaking strictly about alcohol consumption, we assume, Gwyneth Paltrow came out in defense of our least favorite red head. The Oscar Award-winning actress forecasted the following.

Lindsay on the Mend?

"My prediction is that Lindsay Lohan, she'll figure it out," Paltrow said. "It's really, really hard to be so young and so in the public eye and I think it's very confusing ... It's hard to be that out there and, you know, when everybody's analyzing everything you do, and she's ... very young."

So is Hilary Duff, though. And you don't see her getting all wasted. Usually.

Paltrow also said she felt that Lohan is very talented and will have a successful career.

We can't say we agree with that - but we do support Gwyneth's apparent dig at Dina Lohan.

"My parents would have killed me if I didn't do it behind closed doors," the actress said of any sort of partying or hard drinking.

We'll have to wait and see how Emma Bunton handles her child drinking. At the rate kids go these days, however, Baby Spice may have to lay down the law in just a few years.

It's sad.

Emma Bunton is no longer Baby Spice - but the news of her actually having a little one is causing former singing mates to offer their congratulations.

The most notable, of course, is Victoria Beckham. A mother of three herself, the ex-Posh Spice told People magazine:

Posh Spice: Fashion Designer

"I am so excited for Emma. It really is fantastic news, and she really will make a perfect mummy!"

That's British talk for "mommy," folks. We know Jessica Simpson, at least, must've been confused.

Buton's close pal Melanie "Sporty" Chisholm was similarly enthusiastic.

Chisholm "is absolutely delighted," her manager said. "She spent much of the weekend trying to reach Emma, as they kept missing each other. She is overjoyed, thrilled to bits for her. As everyone is."

Wait, the woman formerly known as "Sporty Spice" still has a manager?!? Isn't that sort of like Katie Rees still having a copy of the bible?

Bunton and boyfriend Jade Jones made their happy announcement Friday. We're happy for them - and assume Posh's gal pal, Katie Holmes, is, too.

The Hollywood Gossip note: The following post presumes that Paris Hilton was not in any way involved with the website, parisexposed.com.

This seems as likely as Miss America Lauren Nelson NOT having a nude picture past - but we'll go with it for now in order to bring you the news:

Daris

On Monday, Paris slapped a federal lawsuit on the website that's displaying private photos, videos, diaries and other possessions she had kept in storage, the Associated Press reports.

Parisexposed.com lets visitors paying $39.97 view Hilton's passport, bank statements, medical records and other legal documents that the site claims were auctioned off after Hilton failed to pay the rent on a Los Angeles-area storage facility. There's also many nude Paris Hilton photos.

In her legal papers, the spoiled wench says the items went into a 6,000-sq.-ft. storage unit two years ago when she and her sister, Nicky Hilton, moved out of a house that had been burglarized.

Paris claims a moving company was to pay the storage fees.

"I was appalled to learn that people are exploiting my and my sisters' (sic) private personal belongings for commercial gain," Hilton said in a statement accompanying the lawsuit.

Right. Sure. We believe you, Paris. You've never released a sex tape for the same reasons or anything.

We put more stock in these grainy Jayden James Federline pictures than anything you have to say.

Jennifer Lopez has jumped to the defense of TomKat's wedding â€" and religion.

"[The wedding] was a great celebration of their love," J. Lo told a Florida TV station. "It was good. It was beautiful."

Greeting Her Fans

The singer/actress raised eyebrows when at the star-studded nuptials in Italy â€" and started speculation that she's considering converting to Scientology, the religion embraced by Tom Cruise, as well as Lopez's friend, King of Queens star Leah Remini.

But Jennifer Lopez doesn't need the stars to show her the Scientology ropes: her father is a member, and she's irked that people ridicule the cult religion.

"I, myself, am Catholic," Lopez said. "My dad has been a Scientologist for 20 years. It's weird people want to paint it in a negative way."

Meanwhile, Victoria Beckham is telling pals she has no intention of joining Scientology, despite her close friendship with Cruise and Katie Holmes.

"There's no way I'd spend any money on that nonsense," she told a friend recently.

Says a friend of Posh's:

"It's laughable that there's even talk of her becoming a Scientologist. Just because people are friends doesn't mean they do everything they do. Scientology is an expensive religion; Victoria is too cheap to convert."

Not sure we buy the bit about it being pricey. This chick shops hard. But we definitely buy the bit about being nonsense - that's a given.

And even the $250M deal David Beckham signed with the L.A. Galaxy wouldn't be enough to ward off Xenu, the evil space emperor central to Scientology. Really.

Lauren Nelson, an aspiring Broadway star, was crowned Miss America Monday night, the second year in a row that a Miss Oklahoma has won the crown.

Nelson, 20, of Lawton, Okla., is a student at the University of Central Oklahoma and wants to get her master's degree in musical theater.

"I watched Miss America as a little girl since I was 2 years old, and never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be one of those girls on that stage, and never did I think that I would be Miss America," Lauren Nelson said.

Nelson was crowned by last year's winner, Jennifer Berry (below). The event was hosted by hunky dancing king Mario Lopez, who appears to be interested in trying to hit that later. Sorry, Karina Smirnoff.

Being a 20-year old blonde from the south, we can only assume Lauren will fall into a pattern similar to that of Tara Conner and kick off a three-month celebratory bender packed with booze, drugs and girls. Hard.

Maybe she can even bring along a Katie Blair-like understudy to all of her Miss America engagements. What's the harm, right? Although Donald Trump doesn't own Miss America pageant, so she might not get a second chance.

A word to the wise, Lauren: don't bring the digital camera when you go out to the bars. You've seen what happened to Katie Rees, right? Exactly. She got screwed. In more ways than one.

Sorry, fellas, these are not nude Katie Rees photos.

But they're still pics of the former Miss Nevada, doing what she does best: No, not judging female orgasm contests. Just partying it up like the young hottie that she is.

Seen here, Rees is making like the Tara Conner of old.

She was spotted at Body English night club in Las Vegas until 3:45 a.m. over the weekend - and why shouldn't she be? The estranged pageant queen is just taking advantage of her looks and few moments in the spotlight.

As long as Lauren Conrad wasn't her designated driver on the way home, we commend this beauty for enjoying herself while still young.

We just hope Katie Rees doesn't blame us for f%#$ing her over that night. It's our job to run photos such as this, ok?

We also assume that was the job of this guy that night.

R&B superstar Brandy may not have escaped justice yet.

Following her recent involvement in a fatal car crash, the California Highway Patrol recommended that the singer/actress be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, the Associated Press reports.

Siblings, Singers

This could mean up to one year in jail and thousands in fines. Unless she does the smart thing and gives Pete Doherty's legal team a retainer this minute, in which case she'll probably get community service.

"The city attorney's office is currently reviewing the case to determine whether the evidence warrants the filing of a misdemeanor charge of vehicular manslaughter," CHP spokesman Nick Velasquez said.

The accident occurred on December 30, 2006 as Brandy drove her Land Rover into the back of a Honda driven by Awatef Aboudihaj, whose car hit another vehicle before ending up on the median where she was struck by someone else. She later died of her injuries.

Brandy is not suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

A message seeking comment from Brandy's publicist, Courtney Barnes, was not immediately returned. Lauren Conrad reportedly decided to buckle her seat belt after reading this story, though, so that's good. Click it or ticket, babe.

Back when Hulk Hogan was a full-time wrestler, he often took on Andre the Giant.

Now, it appears as though he's raised his daughter to look just like that behemoth.

Shopping Spree

Take a look for yourself. We're not sure who the girl standing next to Brooke Hogan is - but we do know that the talentless singer towers over this woman like the shroud of mystery looming above Jayden James Federline.

We also know that Brooke has cheap taste in shoes.

And that her father wants to beat up David Hasselhoff.
