The uber-skinny Nicole Richie says that, contrary to media reports, she was back in rehab this month and was just "on tour with [Joel Madden]" - her Good Charlotte boyfriend.

Richie went on On Air with Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM morning show Wednesday, saying she believes that because she was not photographed for over a week, reports surfaced she was in rehab for drug abuse and eating disorders.

Welcome, 2010!

That and the fact that she weighs 45 pounds.

Anyway.

While she revealed that Paris Hilton is "scared" about going to jail, the anorexic waif is also nervous she may have to spend time in the slammer herself - stemming from her awesome, infamous wrong-side-of-the-road DUI arrest.

Although no decision has been made in the Nicole Richie case, she says, "I have to deal with any consequences that come my way."

You think?

Nicole held a now infamous barbecue last weekend, where Mischa Barton was hospitalized for "an adverse reaction to prescription medication," and which featured a pre-rehab appearance by Lindsay Lohan.

You know, just the kind of company a struggling "star" should keep.

Richie says she was not present for either Lindsay Lohan's "five-minute" visit, or for Mischa's medical scare, because the hostess was at the supermarket "buying Sunny Delight."

Suuuuuure thing. We've heard some ridiculous lies during a year deep in the trenches of the celebrity gossip business, but that one's a whopper.

It may even rival claims that the Dustin Diamond sex tape was released accidentally, not on purpose by the cretinous former child star.

With a vivacious personality and killer good looks, it's no surprise that Kristin Cavallari has captured the heart of actor Nick Zano.

It appears Kristin Cavallari is winning over his family members, too.

Below, the former Laguna Beach bad girl enjoys a fun coffee break with her beau of six months and his mother as the threesome pick up their caffeinated orders to go at a West Hollywood Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Tuesday.

As Kristin Cavallari photos go, this is neither racy nor especially hot. And yet it is. Sometimes, particularly when out with your boyfriend's mom, less is more.

It's good to see Kristin and Nick out, about and happy. She's apparently unfazed by the fact that she's losing for her former Laguna rival in our Kristin-Lauren debate …

Forget how awkward a certain incident on The View was for co-hosts Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd last week, imagine what it was like backstage.

As Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck exchanged words, things were rather awkward for the guests in the greenroom.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Tim Hasselbeck

"All four of us were at a loss," Dancing with the Stars' Maksim Chmerkovskiy told People magazine of his time waiting out the argument with dance partner Laila Ali and fellow stars Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson. "It was a straight-up brawl."

Chmerkovskiy says the guests had been warned by View staffers that the show could get "intense" â€" and it quickly did. "At first everyone was sort of laughing, [like,] 'See, I told you it gets intense.' Then it was like, Okay maybe it's one of those very intense ones."

"But people were still giggling. But then it became a fight between [Rosie O'Donnell] and Elisabeth."

At the commercial break, Chmerkovskiy recalls stone-faced View employees running out of the room to deal with the fallout. Actress Alicia Silverstone, who was also in the greenroom, was not happy that her segment was next: "She was like, 'I don't want to go on now.' She had one of those hyperventilating moments where she was like, 'Okay, I'm really nervous.'"

Probably similar to how Tessa Horst when felt Andy Baldwin got down on one knee - but for very different reasons.

But the show went on, and Chmerkovskiy and Ali performed their dance without incident. "It was like nothing had happened," he says. "I thought great, this must be a normal day at The View."

Of course, it was far from it. Sources O'Donnell was genuinely upset by the bickering on the day she now refers to as "nuclear Wednesday."

But she's now at peace with it and "doesn't second-guess her decision at all," says O'Donnell's lifelong friend Jackie Ellard. "In fact, I'm sure she's sleeping better than she has in a long time."

And certainly better than Paris Hilton will in jail.

The Hollywood Gossip is on its game.

Unlike a certain lazy, yet funny Sports Gal.

Bachelor Buns

When Andy Baldwin chose Tessa Horst on The Bachelor a week ago Monday, we waited around for the Sports Gal's take on it. And waited, and waited. At long last, we got fed up and had to post our own recap.

Three days later, her Bachelor blog apparently goes live, when it was old news and noticed by no one (with the possible exception of Bill Simmons).

Anyway, for you hard core fans, we've got her post up.

Finally.

Below, we present the Sports Gal's long-awaited take on the passionate love affair shared by Andy and Tessa, the demise of poor Bevin Powers and the rest of the drama of The Bachelor season finale.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wasn't there when Bill watched the Celtics lose the lottery, but he couldn't have been more crushed than Bevin Powers after she got dumped on the final episode of The Bachelor.

I'd describe what happened, but I was too busy covering my face with my hands. It was a big blow to the confidence of tattooed divorcées everywhere.

They may never trust the intentions of an uptight, dorky Naval doctor again.

Earlier in the show, Bevin exchanged I love yous with Andy Baldwin and told the camera, "There's no chance in hell that he'll leave me without a rose in the last ceremony."

By the end, they were whisking her sobbing ass away in a limo as she whined, "This s--t happens to me all the time. This is the story of my life."

Just about everyone who wants to has seen Lindsay Lohan nude by this point.

Marilyn Manson included.

Lindsay Exposed

But the shock rocker, also known as Brian Warner, did not get a personal tour of her undercarriage, if you know what we're talking about.

We're talking about the infamous Crotch of Fire.

In a video over on TMZ and AOL, the new man of Evan Rachel Wood broke into a bizarre, philosophical rambling about Lohan's "firecrotch."

"How much would it suck that, forever, you're going to be a 'firecrotch,'" Marilyn Manson mused. "You're gonna have to shave or just roll with it."

Marilyn adds that it's his theory that the drunken mess went blonde for precisely this reason, trying to pull a little "slight of hand."

Clearly he's put a lot of thought into this one. No word on how Brandon Davis, who coined the term in relation to L-squared, feels about it.

Manson also says Lindsay Lohan had "an obsession with changing her clothes in front of me" - adding fuel to the rumors that ex-wife Dita Von Teese broke off their marriage in large part due to Lohan's incessant calls to Manson to "hang out."

Manson says he did not heed said calls, although there were many. But he says he did spend time with Lindsay Lohan on a different occasion. This is getting weirder by the minute.

What's next? We're probably going to hear that he had a sordid threesome with Evan Rachel Wood and Britney Spears after the loon shaved her head.

Reggie Bush is known for his moves on the football field.

Kim Kardashian is known for her moves in the bedroom.

Rocking a Bikini

Put them together and what do you have? The following unpleasant image of a Heisman Trophy winner swapping spit with a sex tape star.

The two were spotted at TAO in Las Vegas, making like Taylor Hicks and Caroline Lyders on a beach. Be sure to wash that mouth out with soap tonight, Reggie.

During times like this, you can't help but wonder what Ray J is thinking as he watches Kim cozy up to another man.

The same goes for another Kardashian ex, Nick Cannon. But he's engaged to Selita Ebanks, so we somehow doubt this actor has given his former flame a second thought.

Nothing says hard core hip-hop like Kevin Federline and Wilmer Valderrama.

TMZ spotted the pair of wannabe rappers taking to the mic at TAO in Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend, dropping their own ill rhymes to whatever the DJ played.

In other words, they just keep saying "yo" as some guy spins generic rap beats. Too bad they couldn't get mini K-Fed to make a cameo.

The Vegas jaunt marked Kevin's first since April, where he was rumored to be getting wild at a poolside party - a charge an eyewitness wrote us to refute.

Rumor has it that K-Fed invited Wilmer Valderrama to appear on his next album. This assumes someone will ever produce another Kevin Federline album.

But still, how lame is that? And we thought "Lose Control" was bad.

We've screen-capped TMZ's exclusive video of it for you above, just so you can see we're not making this crap up. The exes of Britney Spears, and, well, just about every young celebrity in Hollywood (Mandy Moore, Lindsay Lohan, and Jennifer Love Hewitt to name a few) really did rap together on stage. And it rocked.

The unquestioned highlight: K-Fed screaming "I wanna hear all the bitches up on in this scream" ... and maybe one did.

We were there for the Shiloh Nouvel's first steps. Did you think we'd miss out on reporting about her first birthday?!?

The celebration for the world's most beautiful baby took place in Prague.

Worried About Shiloh!

It was made into an especially big deal because Angelina Jolie wanted to honor her late mother Marcheline Bertrand (who died of cancer in January), who "would spent weeks to plan the right birthday party, and write four drafts to get the right birthday card ready," Jolie recently told Dateline NBC's Ann Curry.

Brangelina settled in at a special rental in the Czech Republic capital, where Jolie is on location shooting the thriller Wanted.

"I was contacted by the bodyguards," Katarina Rozsivalova of Prague's Balon Servic (a balloon service) tells Us Magazine, proving once and for all that Brad Pitt just loves balloons..

"They told me they needed 50 balloons for Saturday and Sunday. An assortment of colors." Also delivered: cookies and a cake.

We know, we know: this is celebrity gossip news almost as fascinating as what dress Lauren Conrad will wear to the MTV Movie Awards.

But birthdays come around just once a year, people! Even for Hollywood's most rapidly expanding brood. So it's hard to fault Brangelina for making the day special for Shiloh, as Zahara, 2, Pax, 3, and Maddox, 5, all were there for the occasion.

"One time, when the kids were bored, [Pitt] had them all throwing empty pizza boxes as Frisbees," says a source. "Obviously, Shiloh was too young to join in, but you could hear her laughing."

And that's really what it's all about. Laughter and happiness. It makes us wonder why Terra Jole wasn't invited to the party.

There must not have been an In-n-Out Burger within sight, because Britney Spears was spotted yesterday chowing down on a different kind of snack.

What's left of her fingernails, that is.

Wearing a weird green weave holder (whatever that is) on her head, the living, breathing fashion faux pas chomped on her hands while waiting at a stoplight in Beverly Hills.

Clearly she's musing about something. Poor girl.

Could it have been ...

  1. ... Whether or not to tease the paparazzi by giving them a glimpse of her boobs, as her tank top strap falls down her arm?
  2. ... Whether to take care of item #1 on this list, then turn around and complain about the paparazzi ruining her life?
  3. ... Whether to get tickets to see Terra Jole and a mini-Fedex duke it out on a Las Vegas stage?
  4. ... Whether she left Sean P. at the tanning salon?
  5. ... Whether to put Simon Cowell on her new death list?
  6. ... Whether to wear underwear the next time she goes clubbing?
  7. ... Whether to get visit Howie Day for another rehab booty call?
  8. ... Whether to finally let us see Jayden James?

We may never know for sure.

But we can tell you for damn sure that our celebrity gossip spies will track the troubled star's every move until she kicks the bucket or Perez Hilton gets shut down.

American Idol winners are hooking up left and right!

First, Carrie Underwood snagged Pro Bowl quarterback Tony Romo.

Now, Taylor Hicks is making a move on a sort of well known television personality.

After days of speculation about the identity of the random blonde with the awful taste seen with Hicks recently, word is spreading that it's none other than Milkwaukee morning anchorwoman, Caroline Lyders. We had a feeling.

Lyders claims that her and last year's American Idol champion are just "friends," but this photo says differently. We haven't seen this much kissing since Mary-Kate Olsen sucked face with Max Snow.

In other American Idol "friends" news: Kellie Pickler is dating Jordin Tootoo.

And Blake Lewis may be dating Antonella Barba.
