What a week of celebrity gossip it's been since our last gallery update. Nude photo scandals, American Idol eliminations, Britney Spears acting surprisingly same ... you think you've seen it all! Here are some quality celebrity photo highlights:

Rather than Nick Lachey chilling with a smokin' hot girlfriend (Vanessa Minnillo) or Matt Leinart with a young son (Cole), the two buddies have decided that it's probably a lot more fun to hang with hot, young chicks! Nice!
Nik Richie at the TheDirty.com got these photos of the two stud muffins hanging hot tub-side at Matt's place in Arizona over the weekend. TMZ posted the photos earlier this afternoon, and we've got a few of them here ...
Nick Lachey and Matt Leinart gettin' smashed with young girls. Classy.
Matt Leinart, who has been linked to Paris Hilton and Kristin Cavallari, among others, certainly cements his reputation as a party animal with these shots.
We have a few observations:
Before you get too riled up over the following Sarah Larson bikini - and possibly sex - photos, George Clooney fans, take note:
They were taken last July, just a month after Larson met the handsome actor and before they became an official item.
Nevertheless... damn! Larson is showing some serious Antonella Barba-like action in these shots, down on all fours in one of them and getting very, very up close and personal with some dude in another.
The photos were taken in Las Vegas, where Larson was reportedly employed by club promoters as a resident "party girl" and go-go dancer, reports Star Magazine.
Hey, you're not George Clooney! Stop having sex with Sarah Larson!
This time, it's no accident.
In fact, the celebrity gossip on the street in recent days is that Audrina Patridge was none too happy with the way she looked in the first set of nude pictures that were mysteriously leaked this month, so she released a new set.
Yes, we're serious. After she expressed regret, yet sort of defended the nude photos that leaked online, The Hills star has posed for more than a dozen hot new pics for the celebrity photo agency Splash News (which also owns the originals).
The photo agency had no comment. Check out the HOT pics here.
Some celebrity observers and skeptics believe that Audrina Patridge was perfectly happy about the release of the nude photos - and may have even leaked them herself. After all, nothing produces buzz like naked photo scandals.
Was the leaking of Audrina Patridge nude pics really accidental?
Reports say Audrina had been getting less screen time because of Lauren Conrad's friendship with Lauren Bosworth (Lo). Lo is LC's roommate, while Audrina lives in the guest house behind Conrad's recently-purchased Hollywood villa.
"Audrina has been feeling left out," says an insider.
"[Lauren Conrad] is always with Lo, and they're decorating their house together, so Audrina has been feeling like she's been replaced."
But not on the celebrity gossip meter.
Thanks to the topless photos she is much more highly sought after. Even Playboy wants to talk to her, possibly about a nude pictorial in the near future (heck, if she's already appeared with the Pussycat Dolls, Playboy can't be far off).
The nude Audrina pics were good enough to get the men's mag's attention, which is ironic, as they were shot and submitted to Playboy back in the day, only to be rejected. Now that Patridge has major notoriety, however, it's a new ballgame.
With Blake Fielder-Civil safely tucked away in prison and her family making its best efforts to keep her off the smack, Amy Winehouse has actually managed to visit the recording studio to make some new music of late. That's the good news.
The bad? Wineheezy is working with producer Mark Ronson and friends say her new music has become even "darker" than her huge hit Back to Black. They have described it as "suicidal music," because the lyrics are so bleak.
Should we take away the belt and shoelaces of Amy Winehouse?
An inside source told the UK's The Sun: "Her next album is darker than ever. [Amy Winehouse] got low self-esteem anyway but her skin has made her want to hide away from the rest of the world. And we have started noticing more and more cuts on her arms. Her problems are pushing her over the edge and she's turning into a depressed recluse. It's not good for her to stay in so much."
Hmm. Maybe more visits to Blake Fielder-Civil in the can would actually be a good thing? As long as he's not too busy kicking somebody's ass or becoming someone's bitch. You know how it goes in prison, you gotta pick one of those options.
In a recent American Idol promotional photo shoot, the remaining season seven finalists struck a few intimidating poses.
We're not sure what the theme of the ads are, but we're likely to find out on the show this week. For now, just enjoy these new American Idol pictures:
David Archuleta, David Cook and Syesha Mercado strut down the street.
You don't wanna mess with Ramiele Malubay, Kristy Lee Cook or Brooke White.
The family of Heath Ledger believes that the late actor may have fathered a secret love child, according to Australia's Daily Telegraph.
Ledger was a 17-year-old when he had an affair with an older woman who is thought to have discovered she was pregnant after the relationship ended.
The woman was living with another man at the time of the alleged affair.
Yesterday, Heath Ledger's uncle, Hadyn Ledger, told the newspaper: "There is a very real possibility that Heath was the father."
If it is confirmed that Ledger is indeed the girl's biological father, it could split his estate between his two-year-old daughter, Matilda Rose, whose mother is Hollywood actress Michelle Williams, and his secret love child.
Heath Ledger, who will star, posthumously, in The Dark Knight, died alone in January in his N.Y. apartment from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
The Brokeback Mountain star drew up his will prior to his mysterious death, obviously, and long before the birth of Matilda, on whom Heath doted.
The April 2003 will created by the actor lists only $145,000 in assets and names the late actor's father, Kim Ledger, mother Sally Bell, sister Kate Ledger and half sisters Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell as the only beneficiaries.
The New York documents following his death also acknowledge Matilda Rose, as Heath Ledger's only known child, as an interested party.
Kim Kardashian wasn't the only celebrity to appear at Wrestlemania XXIV last night.
The one and only Snoop Dogg chilled at ringside for the WWE Diva lumberjack tag team match during the event. (Please don't make us explain what that means; basically, women in scantily clad attire jumped on each other a lot inside the ring.)
After the team of Melina and Beth Phoenix defeated the team of Ashley Massaro and Maria Kanellis, Snoop sprung into action. As depicted below, he clotheslined Maria's ex-boyfriend, Santino Marella, earning the prize of the night for his efforts:
A kiss from Maria Kanellis.
Oh, Snoop. You're such a Dogg.
To think we were already jealous of Andy Roddick for being able to hit 140 mph serves. Now he's hitting swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker - for life!
The tennis star is officially off the market after he popped the question to B-Deck last Tuesday, several sources, including Decker's rep, have confirmed.
For those of you who are unaware, Andy Roddick won the 2003 U.S. Open. He's been shut out of the Grand Slams since, despite a great career.
Even more impressively, Brooklyn Decker is a smoking hot model who has been in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
In getting engaged to the lovely Brooklyn Decker, Andy Roddick - tennis' king of aces - finally gets his queen. Quite the major championship prize if you ask us.
The pair, who have been dating since 2007, first met Roddick got his agent to track down a number for Decker. They were first spotted together during tennis' major U.S. Open in New York City that September. Hot stuff ever since!
No word yet on a wedding date, but we'll keep you apprised.
Troubled pop star Britney Spears might be rethinking her day job, if only
because she is crazy and can't sing to keep her from getting into trouble.
The New York Post reports that Britney's dad, Jamie, wants her to do more TV because it's a "normal 9-to-5 job," or something sort of like that.
It will "keep her working and out of trouble," Jamie Spears thinks. Given her track record of clubbing with no underwear on, it's hard to argue with him.
Britney Spears' guest role on How I Met Your Mother, in which she played a dorky, bubbly and cute receptionist, was considered an image-building success.
Jamie has looking around for more TV work for Britney, and is "exploring several offers for Britney to have her own show." Ummmm, okay.
In any event, Tina Fey - writer, creator and star of NBC's hit comedy 30 Rock - said that she would welcome the singer for a guest spot on her show.
That is, if only she could get in touch with her.
