 Former reporter - and current attention-starved liar - Rita Cosby has written a book called Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story behind Anna Nicole Smith's Death.

In it, she claims that Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern were lovers. And this accusation isn't sitting too well with the father of Anna Nicole's baby.

Not Camera Shy

"If this book is not sitting next to Harry Potter on the fiction shelf, then Rita Cosby is going to be wrapped up in one of the most expensive lawsuits ever," Birkhead said to Us Weekly. "I don't know how Cosby can print lies like that without once attempting to contact me. That's journalism 101."

One pressing question remains: why did Stern and Birkhead (pictured) attend L.A.'s Gay Pride parade in June 2005, where Anna Nicole Smith was grand marshal?

"I was a photographer," Birkhead said, denying that he and Stern are like Wentworth Miller and Luke MacFarlane. "My camera is around my neck in every picture."

Among the other allegations in the tome?

That Birkhead and Stern struck a deal giving Birkhead custody of Dannielynn in exchange for Stern being named executor of Smith's estate, worth a potential $472 million; and that Smith considered Birkhead a "sperm donor," whom she never intended to keep around.

"It's bogus," says Birkhead. "Zero truth to it."

In the new edition of Vanity Fair, cover story Nicole Kidman reveals a side seldom seen - lonely, insecure, lost, and enigmatic.

"From the minute Tom and I were married, I wanted to have babies," Kidman, 40 (and 22 when she met Tom Cruise), tells Vanity Fair. "And we lost a baby early on, so that was really very traumatic. And that's when we would adopt [daughter] Isabella," now 14.

Nicole goes on to say, "There's a complicated background to that, given that I never speak much about many things. One day maybe that story will be told."

Two years later, the Cruises (who were to divorce in 2001, after nearly 10 years of marriage) adopted son Connor Cruise, now 12.

Asked how it felt when she won her 2003 Best Actress Academy Award, for The Hours, Kidman says, "It felt big. It felt lonely and big. You're in a hotel and you're like, okay well, I'm sitting in this big suite with an Oscar, and I still don't have a life. What is wrong with me? It hit home that I needed to get a life. Who do I jump on the bed with, and celebrate with, and order pancakes with?"

She adds, "That was painful, not having that person to share it with. That's why it was more for my mom and dad and my kids. But even the kids were young enough that they were like, 'Oh, cool. Over. Move on. Not interested.' "

It was not until a 2005 Australian promotional event in Los Angeles that Nicole Kidman met country star - and Queensland native - Keith Urban.

"I would probably say two lonely people managed to meet at a time when they could open themselves to each other," she says. "We were frightened and brave."

They married in June 2006; four months later, Keith was in rehab.

It's official: Ruby Sweetheart has actual parents.

Over the weekend, Tobey Maguire made an honest woman out of Jennifer Meyer when this long-time couple tied the proverbial knot.

Maguire and Meyer exchanged vows Monday in a sunset ceremony in Kona in front of a small group of family and friends, including Leonardo DiCaprio. The two have been dating since 2003 and seem like one of the more normal couples in Hollywood.

Then again, so did Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams.

We hope Tobey and Jennifer have better success than that pair did.

What kind of frickin' moron drives a golf cart drunk off the course and onto the streets of town, then gets arrested for DUI?

The editor of this site. And Bill Murray.

THG NOTE: Our staff members do not condone drunk driving in golf carts. At the same time, gosh, that is some fun stuff!

Anyway. You could say that something was lost in translation when Bill Murray was nabbed by police while in Sweden while driving a golf cart drunk.

Actually, you couldn't. That's just us looking for a lame play on words to introduce a story involving Bill Murray driving drunk in a golf cart. Which is quite funny on its own, no?

"The cops asked me to come over and they assumed that I was drunk, and I explained to them that I was a golfer," the 56-year-old actor said.

The Lost in Translation and Caddyshack star said he was in Stockholm to play in a Pro-Am golf tournament when he hitched a ride to a post-event party in a golf cart. When no one wanted to drive home, Murray volunteered to play chauffeur.

Proof positive that drunken generosity will get you every time.

"I ended up stopping and dropping people off on the way like a bus. I had about six people in the thing and I dropped them off one at a time," he said.

Police pulled Murray over as he dropped off his last passengers at a 7-Eleven, he said, adding, "I didn't know they had 7-Elevens in Stockholm."

You know, neither did we.

Swedish police took a blood test after the actor refused a breath test. If tests show his blood alcohol level exceeded the legal limit - said to be very low in Sweden - he could face formal drunk driving charges. Make room in that cell, Nicole Richie!

Here's some juicy celebrity gossip:

TMZ is reporting that the upcoming Lionsgate film Tulia has been scrapped to start filming in October. How come? Because the film's star, Halle Berry, is three months pregnant!

A source says Berry, who is currently dating cute model Gabriel Aubrey, was set to star in the movie about the drug and racial profiling scandal in Tulia, Texas. The movie was scheduled for a 2008 release and was to be directed by John Singleton.

It also would've starred Billy Bob Thornton.

Now that Berry is pulling a Tameka Foster on us, she had the following to say:

"Yes, I am three months pregnant," the Oscar winner told Access Hollywood on Tuesday. "Gabriel and I are beyond excited and I've waited a long time for this moment in my life."

"This is like... I feel like we're back in high school with this! How long have I been friends with you.... What a bitch!" - Brody Jenner

Ah yes, the sage wisdom of the great Brody Jenner. Try as he did to talk sense into childhood friend Spencer Pratt, he couldn't it get it through the oily one's head to cool it in regards to Brody's rekindled friendship with Lauren Conrad.

Buffoons

As a result, as Brody himself said, "Spencer broke up with me!"

That was the focal point of last night's new episode of The Hills, in which Lauren Conrad helped her ex-boyfriend (and possible friend with benefits) realize that life can actually be (gasp) a lot more fun without Spencer Pratt.

A stunning revelation, we know.

At the episode's onset, however, the focus was on Audrina Patridge and former flame Justin-Bobby (real name Justin Brescia) who had drifted apart in the last episode, only to get back together again in a true reality TV stunner.

Justin-Bobby tells Audrina that he's "hesitant to put labels on things" and wants them to become "best friends" before lovers, then accuses Audrina of being too sensitive.

Riiiight. Lauren Conrad's take? "[Audrina] wasn't being over-sensitive. He was being over-a$$hole!" Said as only Lauren can. You tell her, girl!

Shortly thereafter, at work (yes, she has a job) Heidi Montag learns that Brody and Lauren have been hanging out again from her boss, club promoter Brent Bolthouse... at a staff meeting. Yeah, MTV doesn't stage this show at all.

Heidi was taken aback, and in typical fashion, Spencer reacted to the news with a sneer. Betrayal. It hurts. Almost as much as having to stare at Spencer Pratt's scraggly-ass blonde beard for much of the show. Take a shave, bro.

Meanwhile, at Les Deux, Brody and Lauren party - with her girl Lo and his boy Frankie Delgado. LC then invites herself over for an "after-party" at his condo. Both deny hooking up the next day, calling it just a "friendly sleepover."

Regardless, they're on good terms, and that's plenty enough for Spencer to shun his childhood pal. When Brody dials Spencer up to shoot the $h!t, Pratt rips him a new one for fraternizing with the enemy - and says that makes him the enemy.

Brody tries to explain, and calm him down, but it's a moot point. As we all know, there's no rationalizing with this conniving, insecure, acne-riddled Devil.

Take cover, Tinseltown: Sanjaya Malakar is on his way!

The former American Idol finalist has put a "For Sale" sign on his family's suburban Seattle home.

People magazine reports that Dennis Fletcher, the realtor brokering the deal, is making no secret of the property's resident star.

"I've probably spent, so far, about $2,500, $2,600," the real estate agent said of his marketing campaign that includes Sanjaya's autographed picture on the house flier and a Sanjaya song clip on its site listing.

So, with Malakar making his way to Hollywood, just one question remains: What the heck will he do there? We've got a few suggestions:

  • The Dillon Panthers need a water boy on Friday Night Lights. We're guessing they'd rather have Sanjaya than Adam Sandler.
  • Four words: High School Musical extra.
  • Consider typecasting on Bionic Woman: Portray a cute cyborg who people like only because you're Indian, have silly hair and can sort of carry a tune.
  • Have sex with Lindsay Lohan.

Last week, The Hollywood Gossip reported that L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services was conducting a child abuse investigation into Britney Spears and the way she's raising her kids (if you can call it that).

We now know more, thanks to TMZ. Apparently, three anonymous complaints were filed July 2, accusing Britney Spears of everything under the sun.

All three allegations were investigated and two were promptly closed out. As for the third, DCFS apparently just dropped the ball and left it hanging.

The complaint that wasn't closed out? Allegations that the dental hygiene and eating habits of Sean Preston and Jayden James are scarily bad.

There's also a claim that her kitchen cabinets were not baby-proofed in Britney's mansions, and the kids could get into dishwashing liquid and whatnot.

Hey, Amy Winehouse does shots of that $h!t for fun.

In any case, the DCFS could have gone to the dependency court and filed a petition, which would signal the Department was taking it all seriously.

That hasn't happened, partly because insiders tell TMZ that, believe it or not, Britney Spears' kitchen cabinets do have proper kiddie locks. Take that, ya'll!

On an unrelated note, we decided to post a picture of Britney Spears to remind you of how hot she used to be. Those eyes are just screaming "Gimme More."

In other news, Perez Hilton has gotten ahold of some new songs from Brit's new record, including this nice one (follow link) called "Got Me High."

Wonder what she's talking about? Her spirits being lifted? Being levitated by Criss Angel and his magic powers? Smoking a ton of marijuana? Who knows!

Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack.

American Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams.

These actresses may have found fairy-tale romances with totally random guys, but they've got nothing on the true love and devotion shared by British singing sensation Amy Winehouse and her husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

Just take a look at the photo below. It tugs at the heartstrings. Aren't they just the celebrity gossip world's poster children for stability and happiness?

Blake and Amy

Blake and Amy: Possibly sedated, definitely in love!

It's nice to see Winehouse, who was hospitalized last month for "exhaustion" and postponed or canceled her summer concerts, then overdosed on drugs and ran into the streets of London bloodied and bruised (with Fielder-Civil in tow) is all smiles in the photo above. Way to bounce back, girl.

She just returned to the UK with Blake Fielder-Civil after their Caribbean vacation. Aside from a little vomiting up blood, a good time was had by all.

Forget Heidi Klum.

Take your eyes off Gisele Bundchen.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard

Why bother with Patrice Hollis?

When lingerie line Agent Provocateur was looking for a new face - or, well, body - for its ad campaign, it went in an unconventional direction: quality actress Maggie Gyllenhaal.

"Maggie is not an obvious sex symbol," said Serena Rees, co-founder of Agent Provocateur. "She is interesting looking, confident and beautiful in a way that is non-threatening, which makes her appealing to men and women alike."

We can't argue with that, as Gyllenhaal replaces supermodel Kate Moss as Provocateur spokesmodel.

Based on this photo, the company made the right choice. Take a look, Kim Kardashian, this is how you do sexy instead of trashy:

This pic of Maggie Gyllenhaal is almost enough to make us not care about Holly Madison nude. You're a lucky man, Peter Sarsgaard.
