When we discovered that a staff member of The Hollywood Gossip went to high school with porn star Mary Carey, we thought that was funny, random news.

But it's nothing compared to this recently unearthed tidbit: In the early 70s, the former CIA director George Tenet attended Cardozo High School in Bayside, NY with adult film legend Ron Jeremy!

Tenet and Jeremy (who's real last name is Hyatt) even played on the soccer team together. This, of course, raises numbers questions:

  1. Did Tenet ever touch Jeremy's balls?
  2. Did Dustin Diamond and Mario Lopez also attend Bayside with this pair?
  3. Has Tenet also seen Paris Hilton nude?

Reportedly, Tenet also served as editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, while Ron's thing was theater. Fully clothed theater, we assume.

We just can't wait until the next random celebrity/porn star connection is made. Perhaps Condoleeza Rice went to nursery school with Jenna Jameson.

On April 23, Kate Bosworth showed up at a New York City charity gala flaunting a noticeably fuller frame than she did last summer.

Hot Kate Bosworth Pic

Then again, there was nowhere to go but up.

The 5-foot-5 actress, 24, had been "dangerously skinny at around 95 pounds, but she's gained 10 to 15 pounds since," Beverly Hills nutritionist Jonny Bowden estimates.

Indeed, as these Kate Bosworth pics showed us, the actress looks better in a bikini than she did months ago. On the flip side, she still looks way too thin compared to anyone normal.

In other words, we much prefer the Jennifer Garner type.

But at least Kate is trying. What was behind the weight gain?

"Kate stopped partying, started working out more, eating a bit more and generally doesn't care about her weight so much because she's happy," a source close to the actress says.

The source adds that no dramatic intervention was staged, a la Spencer Pratt and Brody Jenner conspiring to have the latter help Nicole Richie eat.

Adds a longtime friend of the Boz, "Stress can take its toll, and last fall was just hard for her."

Bosworth and Orlando Bloom, 30, split in September.

"Kate is human. We all go through tough times."

Now? The actress' new regimen includes strength-building activities like hiking.

"She's leading a happier, healthier lifestyle" with model beau James Rousseau, 26, says the pal.

Please, Lauren Nelson, don't make us take back the props we recently handed out to you.

Our celebrity gossip staff just complimented this year's Miss America for not following in the troubled footsteps of past beauty contestants. Yes, we're looking at you, Tara Conner.

What impressed us so much about Nelson? She actually participated in a sting to catch online pedophiles, posing as a 14-year old and helping America's Most Wanted nab some dirty, dirty old men.

Controversy has arisen around Nelson now, however. No, it's nothing like that surrounding former pageant queen Katie Rees. At least we don't think anyone has caught Lauren involved in any girl-on-girl action. But rumors are swirling that she won't actually testify at the trials of these predators.

The producers of America's Most Wanted say this isn't the case, though.

"Despite information to the contrary that appears in... Newsday, according to the Miss America Organization neither Lauren Nelson nor her representatives have told the Suffolk County District Attorney â€" or anyone else â€" that she would refuse to testify in any of the cases in which she participated," the show said in a statement.

Good. We hope that settles the issue. We'd prefer to look at Nelson in an admirable (or nude) light, similar to that of another beauty queen, Helen Salas.

Britney Spears has lost her mind.

Increasingly overwhelmed by work, motherhood and her turbulent love life, the pop princess was bound to snap. Getting freaky with a tool like Howie Day, we could see. But we never expected her to make a move like this.

Jayden James Federline and Staff

Here, the former Mrs. Kevin Federline is seen offering a nice-looking parking attendant $20 to take her eldest child, Sean Preston, off her hands. Amazing. While the little tyke sleeps, his rehabbing mom plans her getaway. Tragic.

The only reason she's still holding on to her youngest, Jayden James? At seven months old, he's still small enough to cuddle without creating a fuss. As her nanny's diary tells us, Britney gets sick of the whole mom thing around the one-year mark.

Plus, she can still get millions for whoring out Jayden James pictures to the highest bidder. Bet on Brit selling out to Vanity Fair, where Suri Cruise photos sold for millions, then trying to pawn JJ off on some vendor outside Staples Center.

Does it really come as a shock that Simon Cowell isn't a great listener?

During an appearance recently on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the American Idol judge admitted he's not always paying close attention to performances. So, just what is he up to as hopefuls sing their hearts out?

Haley Reinhart Pic

"I'm taunting [Paula Abdul] throughout the performance," Cowell said. "I'm saying to her, 'Try to say something interesting, try not to use the words mountain and lakes in your critiques because it's always: You'll climb mountains, you'll swim lakes, whatever.' "

But how can Simon judge contestants such as Chris Richardson if he's so busy bugging Abdul?

"I'll tell you a secret," he said. "I watch the dress run so I actually hear much, much easier what they really do sound like."

As for his American Idol picks, Cowell went with the favorites Jordin Sparks and Melinda Doolittle, but added:

"I wouldn't write off Blake Lewis or LaKisha Jones."

The 10th season of The Bachelor rages on, and it's time for The Hollywood Gossip's recap of last night's episode (#5). As usual, The Sports Gal will do the honors.

The wife of ESPN.com's renowned Sports Guy offers her thoughts below on the many aspiring Mrs. Andy Baldwins, so let's get right down to business.

Jason Mesnick-Melissa Rycroft Email: Part IV

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

[Bill Simmons] made a top-10 list of revelations you should never bring up if you're trying to win over The Bachelor. I thought it was funny so I'm passing it along. He's enjoying this show way too much. He calls it the "I have to tell you something ... " list...

  1. "I have herpes."
  2. "I have a kid."
  3. "I can't have kids."
  4. "I used to date (fill in any NBA player over 6-foot-3)."
  5. "Not only am I in a Girls Gone Wild video, I'm on the cover."
  6. "I can't legally come within 100 yards of my ex-boyfriend."
  7. "I lost my virginity to Joe Buck."
  8. "I don't really enjoy sex that much. I just don't get it."
  9. "When we meet my mom, just be prepared, she's a very heavy woman."
  10. "I'm divorced."

This list was created immediately after we found out that Bevin the Ankle Faker is divorced. She claims that she wanted to tell Andy Baldwin sooner, only she "never had a chance."

Suuuuuurrrrrrrre.

Once Bevin revealed this news to the camera, I quickly revised my final two. She's done and she knows it - I think she was in denial.

She's had a look on her face like she slept with her best friend's fiancée and has to tell her the night before her wedding. She's freaking out.

During one scene, she told Amber Alchalabi that it bothers her that Andy is falling for multiple girls, especially ones who are 23 and haven't had enough "life experiences" to be ready for marriage.

Portia de Rossi should be proud. Her lover is quite the trooper.

Despite an injured back, Ellen DeGeneres is hosting shows this week from a hospital bed on the stage.

AI Crew

The host of the syndicated The Ellen DeGeneres Show said during Monday's taping she was placed on bed rest after she hurt herself Sunday when she leaned over to pick up her dog in her kitchen.

"I felt a tear," said DeGeneres on the show with guest Ryan Seacrest that aired this morning. "I tore a ligament and did something to something else. That's what happened and they said that I'm not able to sit, to move or to do anything."

While lying in her adjustable bed, DeGeneres introduced to the audience her doctor, Fred Lerner, and the emergency room technician who treated her, Frankie Conrad.

After the show with Seacrest, DeGeneres arranged to tape a second program Monday with a guest that knows all about lying on her back in bed: Lindsay Lohan. It airs Wednesday.

Because she can't travel, DeGeneres postponed a much-promoted show aboard an airplane from Los Angeles to New York that was to tape Thursday. She also canceled a May 5 trip to Chicago for a Make-a-Wish Foundation charity event. Fortunately, other charitable endeavors by celebrities are still a go:

With the opening of the bar Angels & Kings, on East 11th Street in New York City, the owners - Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, Gym Class Heroes lead Travis McCoy and clothing designer Jamison Ernest - finally have a place where "all our loser friends can hang out."

Well, at least he's being honest about Ashlee Simpson.

Pete's Piece

Wentz, who was recently named to People's "most beautiful" list (WTF?) told the New York Post he's tired of clubs with door policies and pretentious, uptight bull$h!t and wanted a place for his pals to kick back.

"It's different when you want to bring your friends to a place… and maybe we're just not cool enough to get in. We really just want someplace where we can hang out and be ourselves." 

So basically, Pete Wentz is not cool enough to get into Hyde.

We see how it goes. At least we still have Spencer Pratt to harass when we go. Anyway, as for Wentz's new place, will the Fall Out Boy gang be there?

"Yeah, I'm just gonna be local and drink umbrella drinks," he said. "It will be a bit of a dive, which we need."

Umbrella drinks? Who do you think is gonna go there, Howie Day?

"Our vision was a place that anyone can go and have sex in the bathroom and not get in trouble," he added.

We wonder what Ashlee thinks of that plan. Wow. Note to self: remember to knock if we go to the can in this dump, otherwise we might get a glimpse of John Mayer naked. Then again, we'd probably also see Jessica Simpson's giant boobs…

We're talking about this in the business sense.

This isn't a story about Tom Brady removing sexy lingerie from the smoking hot body of his leggy, curvy Brazilian girlfriend.

Gisele Shows Her Abs

Although we're starting to wish it were.

Anyway, Gisele Bundchen no longer wears Victoria's Secret, according to the New York Post. At least not professionally. The supermodel is giving up her wings (so to speak) as lead angel for the lingerie giant because it won't up her salary.

Gisele currently makes a paltry $5M annually - or the same amount that the Kim Kardashian sex tape settlement netted a certain slutty socialite.

It's no joke, though. The supermodel's sister, Patricia Bundchen, confirmed to Brazilian Web site Glamurana that contract talks had broken off. 

"Her demands were outrageous. She got a new lawyer who was unrealistic," said a source. "Victoria's Secret doesn't care. They have five new hotter, younger girls debuting next year. And they won't have to deal with any craziness."

Five younger, hotter girls than Gisele Bundchen? We're not sure we believe it - but where do we sign up? Just promise Toastee Toof is not one of them.

Reps for Gisele Bundchen didn't return e-mails. A rep for Victoria's Secret declined comment. Tom's pregnant ex, Bridget Moynahan, likely doesn't give a crap.

If Gisele were pregnant too, though? Then $h!t would hit the fan.
