The Hollywood Gossip staff is proud to bring you Tale of the Tape, in which we break down prospective matchups within the celebrity world you probably have never even considered. Because they are pointless, and above all, not real.

Earlier this week, the claws came out as TV cheerleaders Hayden Panettiere and Minka Kelly (meow!) battled for Hollywood Gossip glory. Today, a pair of cute SoCal products go head to head. Who will emerge victorious when Lauren Conrad goes 10 grueling rounds with Matt Leinart? Let's find out. Ding, ding!

You know what they say. When in Paris... a barely legal blonde bombshell has to strut her stuff. And sometimes, that means a little side boob action.

Hayden Panettiere showed us a little breast - and a tremendous body all around - while wearing a gorgeous, form-fitting gold dress while on a press trip yesterday in France.

Yummy Stuff

Ooh la la! Look at the reaction of her Heroes co-star, Milo Ventimiglia, for all that really needs to be said. Keep those eyes on the prize, Milo!

Sorry, Grey's Anatomy fans, but the rumors are true:

Isaiah Washington has traded in his scrubs for, well, science-fiction clothing.

Below is an exclusive photo from a scene in Bionic Woman, the new show premiering this fall on NBC. We aren't sure what role Washington plays in it, but looks like a far cry from the operating table, huh?

Forget Michelle Ryan nude for a moment. Check out the actress in action, as she battles it out with Isaiah.

Britney Spears makes $737,868 a month. Not a small chunk of change. At the same time, Kevin Federline earns somewhere in the neighborhood of jack $h!t.

This is according to the New York Post, which has the latest documents in the white trash couple's ongoing - and increasingly nasty - custody battle.

Britney Spears "is clearly the moneyed party in this case," said Kevin Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, in papers filed Monday in Los Angeles.

Kevin Federline is hoping to win 70/30 custody of their children and MACS (massive amounts of child support) from Spears.

That and $150,000 for his legal bills.

FedEx is broke, his lawyers admit in the filing - his income totaling zero after business expenses, despite $20,000 a month in spousal support Britney Spears is shellin' out already.

Those monthly payments stop November 15.

Federline's lawyer also demands that Spears stop stalling and pick a date to be grilled on the stand. The deposition needs to happen fast, Kaplan argues - in advance of their next hearing date of September 17.

Britney Spears skipped her previous deposition appointment, which was set for August 20, because her lawyer went on vacation, the papers say.

Already on tap for deposition by Team K-Fed are Spears' former assistants (Alli Sims, Shannon Funk), a "designated sober companion," (!?) her former business manager, and a one-time bodyguard, assistant and nanny (Daimon Shippen).

Her former manager, Larry Rudolph, had been dreading (and trying to avoid) the day when he got served, but that day arrived yesterday in L.A., according to Perez Hilton.

A source close to Rudolph says, "It stinks. [Larry] was trying to stay out of it and keep a low profile but he obviously didn't keep it low enough. He didn't want to get involved."

Over the weekend Rudolph, told Ryan Seacrest that he was on the run, and didn't want to say where he was. He didn't want to be served because he said it won't be good for Britney, who he remains loyal to despite the fact that the loon gave him the axe undeservedly.

Kevin Federline: Not a man with a high net worth. Or any sort of talent.

Earlier this week, an attempt was made to serve Britney Spears' friend Sam Lufti - an attempt that ended in a car collision. While FedEx reps say he rammed their car in order to flee, Sam Lufti has said his vehicle was surrounded and rammed by K-Fed's process servers.

Now that the real Dancing with the Stars cast has been announced, viewers may have a few questions about the celebrities involved:

  • Will Melanie Brown's baby weight play a role in her performance?
  • Will Cameron Mathison find time to practice while shooting All My Children?
  • Can Sabrina Bryan win?
  • Who the heck are Albert Reed and Josie Maran?
Peepshow Performer

Allow us to answer the final inquiry: Reed and Maran are models. The former is a face for Abercrombie and Fitch, while the latter has come out with her own cosmetics line recently.

But will their good looks transfer over to the dance floor? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, you can take a look at pics of Albert Reed and Josie Maran nude, or at least very close to it. Here they are, doing their best Sophie Howard impressions...

A man known for brokering deals involving celebrity sex photos and videos has agreed to plead guilty in a plot to extort more than $1 million from Tom Cruise.

That "man" is none other than David Hans Schmidt.

The celebrity porn broker agreed to plead guilty to sending communications for purposes of extortion. He faces up to two years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

It wasn't known when Schmidt, 47, who is free on bond, might enter his plea in court. A phone message left for his attorney was not immediately returned.

A plea agreement for David Hans Schmidt's co-defendant, Marc Lewis Gittleman, who the authorities say helped recover photos from a computer hard drive, has been filed as well. He is also charged with conspiracy to commit extortion.

David Hans Schmidt (pictured) and Gittleman were arrested July 26. Gittleman obtained photos of Tom Cruise's wedding to Katie Holmes from the event's photographer.

Gittleman then made copies of the wedding photos on the drive. He contacted Schmidt after finding a site touting his abilities to broker celebrity photos.

No word if Gittleman read that on this very celebrity news site.

Starting in May, Schmidt had repeated contact with reps of Tom Cruise and threatened to release the photos if he didn't receive $1.2-1.3 million.

David Hans Schmidt began sending e-mails to the actor's camp, including one with 13 photos of Tom Cruise's wedding attached as proof that he had them.

The celebrity sex tape king said he had about 7,600 images and he hoped a "commendable and quiet arrangement could be reached" with Tom Cruise.

David Hans Schmidt attended a meeting with the actor's representatives and an undercover FBI agent July 24 in which he compared his actions to "legal extortion" and said he would "hunt down to hell and back" anyone who dared crossed him.

Guess he was wrong on the whole "legal" bit.

In the past, Schmidt has tried to auction off Paris Hilton's diaries, along with sexual photos of her and other items that were locked up in a storage locker.

Also in Paris' stuff was that now infamous pic of Cisco Adler naked.

Schmidt also brokered deals to sell the Dustin Diamond sex tape and a video of Tonya Harding's wedding night, among other tawdry items.

Steve Coogan has seen Courtney Love nude.

As if that wasn't bad enough for this British actor to deal with, he's now facing charges that his behavior played a prominent role in the recent Owen Wilson suicide attempt.

One source claimed Coogan also used people to get into movies and celebrity gossip circles, saying: "He used his relationships and his contacts with seedy people to get bit parts in movies and to get famous."

The actor, however, fired back on Access Hollywood, saying: "I do want to set the record straight and say that the allegations... are completely and utterly false."

We're not sure if he's clearing up rumors that he encouraged drinking and drug use on Wilson's part, or simply denying that his career in Hollywood is due to anything but talent.

Celebrity gossip, celebrity schmossip: Steve Coogan says he's not a bad guy.

But Love's friends are sticking to their story that he followed around the crazy singer after they stopped dating:

"He has stalked Courtney over the years," a Love friend fumed. "He has gone to her house on several occasions. He e-mailed her nanny. He asked her to marry him and told her, 'You're the most intriguing woman alive.' You name it. His saying Courtney ever stalked him is the biggest lie ever! He has done nothing but go out of his way to hurt her. He's obsessed with her."

Wow. And we thought our feelings for Megan Fox were strong.

Meanwhile, Love hasn't had contact with Coogan in months, except for an e-mail she sent him after Wilson's suicide attempt, which read: "You must feel really great right now. Does this feel life-affirming?"

That's sweet.

David Beckham will miss the rest of the Major League Soccer season after injuring his knee this week.

Fortunately, however, his wife's career is having no such bad luck: Victoria Beckham will be appearing on the ABC hit, Ugly Betty, later this year.

In a role that requires giant boobs, trashy clothing and no acting talent, Posh Spice will portray herself, as she'll appear as a celebrity bridesmaid at the wedding of Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) and publisher Bradford Meade (Alan Dale) in an upcoming episode.

As People magazine reports, this promises to be an active few months for Beckham, who has already launched her own fashion label and line of fragrances.

Then, of course, she'll join Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and the rest of the Spice Girls as they regroup for a two-month, 11-show world tour that no one will care about.

In other random guest star news: Kevin Federline will appear on One Tree Hill this fall.

You might not know it, but Nicole Scherzinger, the only recognizable or even semi-hot of the Pussycat Dolls, and Audrina Patridge of The Hills have a lot in common.

Nicole Scherzinger is currently dating Talan Torriero, who, like, went to his Laguna Beach prom with Kristin Cavallari, who was totally in, like, the rival clique of Lauren Conrad - who's now Audrina Patridge 's roommate! Woo!

A Patridge Pic

They're also wearing the same dress below. Peep it.

Tell us: Who wore it better, Nicole Scherzinger or Audrina Patridge?

And we thought it was gross when Ashton Kutcher ogled the chest of his step-daughter, Rumer Willis.

But at least there's no blood relation between those two.

The same can't exactly be said about Nicky Hilton and Paris Hilton.

Seen here, the spoiled sisters are enjoying a night out... and one of them is enjoying the view. We guess we can't blame Nicky - Paris Hilton nude isn't terrible looking - but someone should should show her this Pamela Anderson photo.

If you wanna ogle huge boobs, the former Baywatch star is a much better option.

And if you wanna really turn up this night of girl-on-girl action, give Katie Rees a call.
