Things are likely to get stressful for stripper Joslyn Noel Morse, as her tawdry affair with married New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez becomes public knowledge.

Let's hope she handles duress better than Amy Winehouse, who reveals how a "desperate" and "depressed" past led her to start mutilating herself.

Amy Winehouse: Burn Victim

The "Rehab" songstress opens up about the slash marks left behind on her forearm in a revealing new Rolling Stone interview, which earned her the cover of the U.S. rock magazine.

The new wife of Blake Fielder-Civil attributes the blues to the fact she grew up in the shadow of an older brother, stating:

"I did a lot of that ‘Oh, life's so depressing' stuff before I was 12. That's when I would be reading J.D. Salinger… and feeling frustrated."

But Amy Winehouse adds her cutting started later, explaining, "That's really old… Just from a bad time, I suppose. Desperate times."

Tom Cruise would argue that there's no such thing as depression... or probably desperation, or frustration. Or emotions of any kind. Guy is a weird one.

But enough about that loon. Winehouse has hinted before that she's set to quit the music business after just two albums - to devote her time to being a good wife and mum.

The singer, who wed Blake Fielder-Civil in a secret Miami ceremony last month, has suggested she may never record another album or tour again - because now she wants to settle down and start a family.

"I've done a record I'm really proud of and that's about it," Winehouse, who didn't make Blake ink a pre-nupital agreement, tells Rolling Stone.

"I'm a caretaker at heart and I want to enjoy myself and spend time with my husband... Blake and I didn't get to spend any time together for a long time."

Winehouse, who shocked many when she got engaged to Fielder-Civil in April after a separation from him, and who is a former Wenn employee, adds:

"I don't want to be ungrateful. I know I'm talented, but I wasn't put here to sing. I was put here to be a wife and a mom and look after my family."

Amen to that. A-Dubs may sport a giant octopus on her head... but that doesn't mean she doesn't have a good head on her shoulders, as they say.

Too bad Britney Spears can't take such a grounded approach.

Blake Lewis and Jordin Sparks get along very well.

But the American Idol champ had always named her favorite male artists as John Mayer and Justin Timberlake. In an interview with The Associated Press this week, though, she pointed to a former contestant from this season of the FOX reality show.

Jordin Sparks at the Grammys

Sorry, Blake. It was Sanjaya Malakar.

"He had so much guts," Sparks said. "He had so much strength. He got a lot of criticism, but for him to go out on that stage and hold his head high ... I really look up to him for that. He's just an amazing kid."

Seems like somewhat strong praise for Sanjaya. Although his sister, Shyamali Malakar, ain't too shabby.

Sparks said "the point of the show ... is to keep who you like, who you want to see the next week. Sanjaya gave that to the people."

We can't argue with that. Most men, however, would prefer it Antonella Barba nude had given a little somethin somethin to them.

Sparks and Malakar will sing with other finalists on the American Idol concert tour, which kicks off July 6 in Sunrise, Fla., and wraps up Sept. 23 in Manchester, N.H.

After that, Sparks says she intends to "hit the studio very hard" to finish work on her upcoming solo album, which "has to be out before Thanksgiving." Her main goal, she says, is to record "encouraging" tracks.

"I want people to roll down the windows and blast the music loud. ... It will be just a Jordin album and, hopefully, people will like it."

The busty blonde gal pal of married New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez is a longtime stripper and Playboy Bunny wannabe who has performed at one of Stray-Rod's favorite strip joints, The New York Post reports.

Joslyn Noel Morse, 30, who most recently was an exotic dancer at Scores Las Vegas, has been repeatedly spied with the Yankees slugger in Tampa, Miami, Dallas - and in Toronto, where they had a cozy dinner and more Sunday.

Alex Rodriguez on The Late Show

The pair later ducked into a local stripping establishment before heading to his hotel.

Morse, an Iowa native who took up the stripping trade after high school, was licensed to work as an "entertainer" at several Vegas strip clubs, according to Nevada state records.

The diminutive damsel is a workout fanatic with a hard-cut physique who appeared topless in an October 2001 edition of Playboy's Casting Calls.

Rumors about her swirled all week, but the identity of Joslyn Noel Morse (above, on the New York Post cover, and below, right) was revealed only yesterday.

At the same time, Alex Rodriguez was spotted strolling through Boston with his pretty wife, Cynthia, who repeatedly flashed a happy grin.

Cynthia (with Rodriguez, below, left), who bore the couple's only child, Natasha, in 2004, said nothing as the third baseman scribbled his name on baseballs for fans.

"It's been enough," A-Rod sighed in frustration as he signed autographs, ready to begin the Yankees' series against the arch rival Red Sox.

The Rodriguezes dined last night at an upscale Beantown steakhouse. The couple - who spent two hours at dinner before heading to their hotel - had nothing to say to a Post reporter.

Several people who know Morse said the former high-school cheerleader is the same blonde The Post photographed Sunday in Toronto with Alex Rodriguez.

"I was absolutely shocked, because it totally came flooding back that this is a girl I went to high school with," said Daniel Lundby, a New Yorker who was a grade ahead of Joslyn Noel Morse - a "popular party girl" - at Regis HS in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in the 1990s.

It's the new, annoying celebrity trend: beautiful actress complain about how good looking they are. Just ask Jessica Biel.

The star has recently complained about the treatment she gets from directors due to her hot looks. We somehow doubt most women feel too badly for her, though, especially considering the treatment she also gets from Justin Timberlake (if you know what we mean!).

Jessica Alba Hair

Now, Jessica Alba isn't asking for sympathy for her appearance... mainly because she somehow claims that it's nothing special. Right. And Halle Berry nude is an eye sore.

Here are excerpts from an interview Alba recently gave Parade magazine:

On always wanting to be an actress:
"I had a lot of tenacity from a very young age. I was pretty clear on what I wanted to do with my life â€" I wanted to act. My dad was like, ‘When are you going to go to regular school? When are you going to get a job?' It wasn't until my dad visited the set [of her television series Dark Angel] and saw how hard I worked that he understood."

On growing up an Air Force brat of mixed heritage:

"I always felt like a fish out of water, and I never felt comfortable with kids my own age. When you move around a lot, and you look different, other kids bully you."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: This is a problem Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt could also face. Just look at that name!

On the paparazzi:
"I could give two sh-ts about them. They're so lame, I can't even believe that's a real job. I can't imagine they even pay taxes."

On being a sex symbol:
"I don't really pay attention to all that. It's only when people start to treat me like one that it really freaks me out. Most days I wake up and look in the mirror and go, ‘ugh.' I don't really think I look all that great."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Jess, take a look at Rumer Willis. Then you'll see what "not that great" looks like.

On being a celebrity:
"I never want to be in the papers except when I'm promoting a movie, but if they have to, they'll make up lies about me just to have something newsworthy to say. The more controversial the story is, the more buzz it can get, and the more it'll sell."

We have no idea what Alba is talking about. But a nude Heidi Montag might soon be seen in Playboy and Alex Rodriguez is having an affair with Joslyn Noel Morse.

Paris Hilton's pussy must be looking forward to the day his owner goes into the slammer. Freedom shall finally be his.

Reportedly, however, this won't take place until the poor kitten is used as a prop to garner sympathy for his law-breaking owner.

Evidently, Paris Hilton has ordered stylists to show up at her Hollywood Hills home at 9:00 AM the day of her imprisonment. The plan is to pull a Naomi Campbell and show up to jail as photo-ready as possible. The inmate should love that.

Moreover, while Paris serving time, a source says that she'll be penning a diary, which "will make a more dramatic read than Martha Stewart's."

But will it sell for more than the Hilton sex tape did?

Finally, as for the big arrival, an "insider" says Hilton may use her new kitten as a prop, handing it over to Nicky Hilton, tears streaming (violins playing, flashes popping, etc.), for maximum effect. Seriously. This is actually the plan.

Speaking of Hilton's sister, she thinks the entire ordeal is just crazy.

"I think she should definitely be punished, but going to jail for a traffic violation is pretty absurd," Hilton said.

But it's in this spoiled skank's nature to remain positive, a friend says. Maybe that's what Stavros Niarchos keeps seeing in her.

"She's the eternal optimist," the pal reported. "She's been through so much, but that's always her disposition."

It's true. Paris has been through so, so much. There was Stavros, Josh Henderson, James Blunt, Matt Leinart...

Emma Roberts doesn't have a typical summer job.

But hey, being a movie star beats working at the mall.

Emma Roberts Pic

On June 15, Emma Roberts will star in Nancy Drew, about the young female detective who follows her dad to Los Angeles and tries to solve a murder.

So what's it like to be a 16-year-old movie star - and the niece of Julia Roberts? Here are some clues to that mystery, from Emma Roberts herself:

  • The highlight of her "sweet 16" party was mugging in a photo booth with pals.
  • She flunked the driver's test.
  • Her curfew is midnight â€" and mom waits up.

In other words, she's a typical teen.

People had a few more questions for Miss Roberts, on the fun subjects of dating, kissing her co-stars and mean girls (we're talking about actal mean chicks, not the movie Mean Girls) and caught up with her at the Washington, D.C.

Have you ever solved any real-life mysteries?
I wish a mystery would fall into my lap like Nancy Drew!

THG NOTE: We're got one, E-Rob - how about investigating the missing weight of Nicole Richie? We've been trying to get to the bottom of that for 51 weeks now.

So when you're not out sleuthing, what do you like to do with your friends?
I don't work on the weekends, so I get to see them every weekend and have sleepovers and hang out and go to the movies.

Do you like to hang out at the mall?
I used to do it a lot when I was younger. I never found it fun. Me and my friends don't understand why people just hang out at the mall. They don't shop or eat or go to the movies; They just hang around. That doesn't sound like fun. I'd rather be at my friends' house. Most of the time a bunch of friends come over and we hang out and go swimming and do nothing.

THG NOTE: Sorry, Hayden Panettiere and Rumer Willis - it doesn't sound like Emma wants to be your little shopping companion!

Nicole Richie is not hot. Not even close. If you wish to argue this point, take a look at this Nicole Richie photo. Game over. We win. The Hollywood Gossip 1, You 0.

Heck, the skinny celebrity as far from smokin' as a girl can get. That said, Joel Madden can at least take comfort in the fact that she can set his car on fire…

PHOTO CREDIT: JFX Images / TMZ

Okay, maybe that's a bit of a stretch on our part. But there's no disputing that trouble once again managed to find Nicole Richie behind the wheel.

At least she wasn't driving while high, or in the wrong direction on this particular occasion. Stil, the vehicularly-challenged "star" managed to overheat her rock star boyfriend's BMW 745 in Beverly Hills.

This happened just hours before the cops nailed Miss Richie with a parking ticket for leaving her car in a loading zone while she got her hair done.

Maybe it's time to take away the keys. While we're at it, let's make sure Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton never drive again as well.

The streets of snooty neighborhoods in Southern California will be forever safer if such aggressive public wellness measures are enacted.

We recognize that Halle Berry is an incredibly talented and award-winning actress. But that doesn't mean she's not ridiculously hot as well.

Just take a look at the (censored) photo of an almost nude Halle Berry below

Halle

Taken from Operation: Swordfish, this cool, topless Halle Berry picture the only redeeming thing about the film. Do you remember what it's about? Some thriller involving some sort of a spy plot? Or a documentary about the fishing industry?

Who the hell cares. All we know is that Halle's hotness continues to this day. You don't need plastic surgery, Halle. You're looking pretty darn good as it is.

This remains a favorite, but all Halle Berry photos do it for us. She looks great in anything or nothing, honestly. No wonder Sanjaya Malakar aspires to be her.

Mischa Barton jetted off yesterday for Russia - which isn't far enough away from her ex-boyfriend Cisco Adler, as far as her parents are concerned.

Mischa

The stunning former star of The OC gave her parents, Paul Marsden Barton and Nuala Quinn, quite a scare on Memorial Day when she was rushed by ambulance to California's Sherman Oaks Hospital after a party.

Barton had "an allergic reaction" after combining antibiotics (which she was taking for bronchitis) with booze, according to her publicist, who says her client was not taking mushrooms.

Just read the last sentence again, will you?

Mischa Barton did spend over a half hour in the bathroom at the party. And she was in a state of undress when she arrived at the emergency room, according to a source.

Now, if this were Kristin Cavallari in a state of undress at the ER, we're guessing none of the male orderlies would be complaining.

But this is Mischa we're talking about.

The one good thing that happened to Mischa Barton that day was the mistake made by the paparazzi, which set up shop outside the wrong hospital.

Barton's parents met her at the hospital - the correct one - to find their drugged-up daughter making a frantic phone call... to the Cisco Kid.

We're talking about Cisco Adler.

"They were angry about her condition," says a spy. "When they left the room, she ran to the phone and tried to call Cisco Adler," whom she supposedly broke up with months ago.

Hey, sometimes you wanna see Cisco Adler naked and sometimes you don't.

It's no secret that Barton's parents are not the biggest fans of the hard-partying, sometimes nude rocker best known to Internet surfers for... well, being a D-list rock star who likes being nude and partying.

"Her dad came back into the room, and heard Mischa Barton deliriously saying, 'Cisco, Cisco,'" says a New York Daily News source.

"Her dad freaked out. She put the phone down, but he yelled at the staff about letting her use the phone."

Wonder if Cisco's ex-fiancee, Kimberly Stewart, also makes such frantic calls.

Either way, after getting some IV fluids, Barton was sent on her merry way.

The experience should help the genuinely talented beauty avoid the excesses of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, who were at the same party.

Since the weekend, she's been getting ready for her untitled movie, for which she's been learning the Russian language.

They don't speak that in Kazakhstan, but our guess is that Borat would still sleep with Barton... or any other woman with a pulse.

We're talking about Hayden Panettiere and Rumer Willis.

They're, like, BFFs for life, which is probably a good thing, even though we make fun of them. Hey, either one could be friends with Lindsay Lohan.

Hayden Up Close

Maybe it's because summer is right around the corner. Maybe it's because they want to show the world what close friends they are. Whatever their reason, they were feeling yellow. Okay, we're moving on now.

Hayden Panettiere and her weird BFF shopped around Beverly Hills Wednesday, toting around some ginormous matching handbags and goggle sunglasses.

Let's just say that while we think Hayden is the finest underage thing under the sun, she could still use some fashion tips from Lauren Conrad.

Rumer, for her part, was sporting a perky and more Demi-Moore-ish haircut than we've seen in the past. She should really get Tallulah Willis to come hang out.

That's her mom. While Rumer still looks kinda weird, we have to prefer this look to the ones sported in the last two pictures we've posted of her with Hayden, in which Willis closely resembles Clark Kent and Marilyn Manson.

On the sidewalk, Rumer Willis and Hayden Panettiere were nearly toppled by the weight of their purses, but they managed to stay on their feet, and even managed to thrown in some giggles for celebrity gossip gawkers.

How nice!
