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.

Our current match-up features a pair of young, beautiful TV cheerleaders. Who will emerge victorious when Heroes star Hayden Panettiere goes 10 grueling rounds with Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly? Let's find out. Ding, ding!

Hayden Panettiere, Hot Per Usual


Minka Kelly: Check.
Hayden Panettiere: Check.
Edge: Even


Minka Kelly: Dillon, Texas
Hayden Panettiere: Odessa, Texas
Edge: Minka (better pass defense)


Minka Kelly: Panther pride, running successful car dealership
Hayden Panettiere: Shady dealings with an organization known as The Company that is aware of people on the planet with unusual abilities.
Edge: Minka


Minka Kelly: Average for a 17-year old girl.
Hayden Panettiere: Unparalleled.
Edge: Hayden


Minka Kelly: Oh God yes.
Hayden Panettiere: Barely.
Edge: Minka


Minka Kelly: Had roles in What I Like About You and American Dreams.
Hayden Panettiere: Appeared on soap operas One Life to Live and Guiding Light.
Edge: Hayden


Minka Kelly: Father was in Aerosmith, mother was a Las Vegas showgirl.
Hayden Panettiere: Lives with her folks, has 1 a.m. curfew.
Edge: Minka


Minka Kelly: Recently broke up with Fantastic Four star Chris Evans; recent rumors have linked her to Harry Morton.
Hayden Panettiere: Has been going out (and engaging in PDAs) with former Laguna Beach star Stephen Colletti for a year.
Edge: Minka


Minka Kelly: Grew up in Albuquerque, N.M., dreaming of being a surgeon.
Hayden Panettiere: In the animated Dinosaur, lent her voice to a creature named Suri!
Edge: Hayden


Minka Kelly: Umm, makes Friday Night Lights a whole lot brighter?
Hayden Panettiere: Starred in TV commercials at age one; Current Neutrogena cover girl; Working on debut album; Voted sixth on FHM's 100 Sexiest Women of 2007; Has made estimated $2 million in 2007 alone.
Edge: Hayden

THE VERDICT: The Friday Night Lights sexpot pulls a stunning upset, ousting Hayden by the slimmest of margins, 5.5-4.5. Guess you better tune in to watch Minka Kelly on Friday nights, starting October 5! Don't count out the Heroes starlet, though. She has a tendency to bounce back rather quickly.

The details of Britney Spears' new single have come to light and according to insiders, it's not what we think. Which must mean it's not complete crap!

It is supposedly being produced by Nate "Danjahandz" Hills, and is an up-tempo club track (not the slow jam leaked online last week) that could drop as soon as next week.

Queen of Denmark

Sources say "Gimme More" is the name of the song - which also happens to be the name of the video that Britney Spears was spotted shooting in July.

This phrase also happens to be what Britney moans to Criss Angel in the middle of their late-night "work-related" rendezvous. Just kidding. Not really.

Britney Spears: Missing a contact lens and lookin' HOT!

Spears also worked with other producers on material for her CD, including J.R. Rotem (who once had sex with her), and although the album still has no official title or release date, a different source close to the album says it's expected to hit stores this fall - even with little or no promotional setup.

Looks like the comeback is in full swing. Not! Sorry, Britney fans, all 12 of you. Maybe we shouldn't talk - there's a new site devoted to the return of her past glory. was started with the mission of supporting poor Brit in these "trying times." Times in which she routinely wears no pants. Good luck.

Us Weekly Courtney Love doesn't really believe in personal responsibility.

Sure, Owen Wilson might have to shoulder some blame for his troubled life. But the crazy rocker also points a big finger at British actor Steve Coogan.

"I went through it with Steve," said Love, who dated Coogan until an acrimonious split in 2006. She railed against him to Us Weekly.

"I was just out of rehab, and he was right there with the drugs," she says. "I tried to warn Owen. I tried to warn his friends ... I hope from the bottom of my heart that Owen stays the hell away from that guy."

While this may sound like typical insane raving from Love, former girlfriend Kate Hudson also reportedly would "forbid [Wilson] from letting Coogan into his house. She knew he was bad," says another source.

"The drugs and partying were a huge factor in the breakup," says a pal of Hudson, who has a young son, Ryder, with ex-husband Chris Robinson.

"As much as she liked him, she didn't want to be around that."

Who would? Well, aside from Kate Moss.

Reportedly, those close to Owen were worried so much about his dependence on hard drugs that Woody Harrelson staged an informal intervention at his Hawaii home in May.

But Wilson continued to withdraw and succumb to depression following his June split from Hudson, who is now dating Punk'd star Dax Shepard (for some reason).

"Seeing her happy with someone else made him happy that she'd found that," says a Wilson family friend, "but made him hate himself so much more that he could never do it."

It's nothing we haven't seen before, yet it's stunning every time. And not all that sexy. Britney Spears strutted around Beverly Hills Tuesday wearing no pants. Peep it.

Behind tha Wheel

Britney Spears: what an ass!

Who needs underwear, right? Earlier in the day, police gave the singer a parking ticket after she ran out of gas. Britney Spears' pants and underwear are still at large.

Earlier this week, we may have jumped the celebrity gossip gun when we reported than Tom Brady's girlfriend, and a few other celebrities, were slated to appear on the latest version of this reality competition. Our bad.

But we did get a majority of the names correct, including former member of The Cheetah Girls, Sabrina Bryan.

With that in mind, we now present the actual list of cast names:

Melanie Brown
• Sabrina Bryan (The Cheetah Girls)
• Helio Castroneves (Indianapolis 500 champion, 2001, 2002)

What could John Mayer be trying to tell us in his latest blog? That he is over Jessica Simpson's large breasts, moving on to Cameron Diaz, making lame, introspective pop-rock ballads and having a blast posing for ad campaigns with his giant dome?

Something along those lines.

Last night in New York City, John Mayer addressed the recently unveiled, huge billboards and magazine ads flooding America with his huge head.

John Mayer: Poet and blogger extraordinaire.

The singer writes on his official blog:

"Phheww... That's a lot of GAP ads, is all I'm saying. I mean, I hope... Yah. Are we, you kno - yah. We cool? Cause I would nev- good. good. Sorry. Okay, I'm gon-yah, I'm gonna go. NO, I just... I hav- bye."

Translation: I once saw Jennifer Love Hewitt nude, then wrote one of the lamest songs in history about it, but I still saw Jennifer Love Hewitt nude, so the joke is on you, bitches.

Gisele Bundchen will show Michelle Ryan nude photos a thing or two!

What, did you think the world's highest paid super model would just sit around while another beauty garnered all sorts of naked attention? Well, this may be true.

But Bundchen will sit around with her clothes off at least! It's safe to assume Gisele has grown sick of receiving attention solely for dating Tom Brady and appearing on the next season of Dancing with the Stars. So she's here to remind readers of one thing: her looks.

And what better way to accomplish this goal than by baring it all? There's no reason to hold back. This sure worked for another model, when a nude Marisa Miller posed in nothing but body paint. 

Gisele Bundchen Naked

Consider the message received, Gisele Bundchen.

You're gorgeous. We hope this assurance helps take your mind off the fact that your boyfriend is now the father of John Edward Thomas Moynahan (via his ex, Bridget).

That's probably a bit awkward.

Looks like Kevin Federline's subpoena-serving assault on Britney Spears' inner circle has taken a new, violent turn.

That's when Aaron Cohen, a process server for K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, attempted to serve a subpoena to Spears pal Sam Lufti... only to have his car rammed into by Lufti himself.

A source tells Us Weekly that Sam Lufti, seeking to avoid being served, spotted Cohen's parked car, drove into it and fled the scene.

The L.A. Police Department said in a statement:

"On August 27, at about 6 p.m., the LAPD received a radio call of a traffic collision in the area of Beethoven and Venice Blvd. in the Mar Vista Area of Los Angeles. Upon officers arrival, an investigation revealed that an Assault with a Deadly Weapon (with a vehicle) occurred. A police report was taken and the suspect was a male, driving a Silver Mercedes SL500. Pacific Division Detectives are handling the case and an investigation is ongoing."

No arrests have been made in the case.

Meanwhile, a man identified as "Sam" (not named as Sam Lufti) and described by the Britney Spears fan site as "an all around good guy and friend to Britney" claims that it was Aaron Cohen who initiated last night's violence.

In an x17 video, Sam pleads innoncence, saying "We were on our way home, and right before I pulled into my driveway, I was surrounded by three of their cars. From the rear, from the side, from the front, the car in the front rammed into me, the car in the back hit, the car in the side scraped... the damage on the car speaks for itself... I was afraid for my safety."

Britney and K-Fed aren't the only ones fighting.

Still, a source close to the case casts doubt on "Sam's" story, telling Us Weekly, "Whomever [the subpoena] was for, if they had nothing to hide, why not just allow yourself to be served and go to court to speak the truth. What exactly are they hiding?"

A good question. Speaking of getting served, Britney Spears' former manager Larry Rudolph - who has admitted trying to avoid subpoenaed in her custody battle - has spoken out, telling That Other Blog in a statement:

"Despite the things that Britney Spears has publicly said about our relationship in the past, I truly understand where she's coming from and why she's said the things she said about me post-rehab and I don't take it personally. As her former manager, I know and understand Britney better than anyone, I know what makes her tick and I understand everything she's going through. With that being said, my loyalty will always stay strong with Britney. I have consulted with my lawyers and I do understand that eventually the time will come when they will find me, but until then, I'm trying to avoid being brought into this mess. She's going through so much right now and I wish Britney the best."

The Hollywood Gossip is in love with Friday Night Lights.

But one of the main actors on this NBC drama recently admitted strong feelings for a certain American Idol finalist.

Scott Porter, who plays paralyzed former quarterback Jason Street, says he was a professional beat boxer before landing this new role. Therefore, you can imagine who he admires.

"He had some strong points and some weak points. I liked watching him, though. He's pretty talented," Porter said of Blake Lewis.

"When I saw him perform with Doug E. Fresh, I have to tell you I was a little jealous, but anything that can bring some notoriety to beatboxing, I really enjoy."

Porter added that locals in Austin - where Friday Night Lights is filmed - are great about letting him get on stage.

"There's a group called Boombox out here in Austin, and whenever I get a chance to see them, they let me up on stage, and we jam a little bit. It's a great feeling to get to do what I used to do."

We're guessing Kyle Chandler and Porter's cast mates have had a chance to listen to these skills, as well. We just hope the rest of America has a chance to watch these incredible actors in action on Friday Night Lights.

It's an incredible show.
