This guy is winning over the fam.

We reported in January that Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia got the stamp of approval from Hayden Panettiere's mother, Leslie Panettiere.

Hayden Panettiere: Smokin'!

Now he has the OK from her 13-year-old brother, Jansen Panettiere.

"Milo is cool, he's a pretty chill guy," Jansen Panettiere told Us Weekly at the Alvin and the Chipmunks DVD release party in L.A. Thursday.

Hayden Panettiere and young Jansen Panettiere are both actors!

As you surely know, Hayden Panettiere, 18, and Milo Ventimiglia, 30, have been dating since last year, following a long string of denials that they were dating.

Ventimiglia had a crush on his Heroes co-star since she back when she was dating reality star and VJ Stephen Colletti. That ended last summer sometime.

Milo confessed it "the minute she broke up with Stephen," a source said.

A source close to the actor shrugged off their 12-year-age gap between the two hotties, saying, "[Hayden] is really like a 30-year-old.

Please, don't say that, source. You're killing us.

Chris Crocker, she's not.

Thank heaven above for that.

But Madonna says the media needs to "step off" Britney Spears.

"For real... Let's go save her," she told an E! satellite radio show.

Madonna, 49, said 11-year-old daughter Lourdes "gets the drift of what's going on, and I think she feels very protective of Britney Spears."

Fortunately for Britney, so does father Jamie Spears.

On Thursday, Madonna said she enjoys listening to Britney Spears' Blackout album while exercising. That "Piece of Me" really is a cult classic, no?
But she and Britney are forever linked in a different way, one that will go down in the legendary history of the girl-on-girl action hall of fame.

The two singers famously locked lips, you may recall, on the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards and collaborated on the song "Me Against the Music."

That's Mario, the R&B singer who uses only his first name (real name Mario Dewar Barrett), and not Mario Lopez, former Saved By the Bell Star.

Karina Smirnoff is partnering with the former on Dancing With the Stars this season. Three seasons ago, she partnered with Mario Lopez.

Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff fell in love and are still dating as a result of that season of Dancing With the Stars. All caught up?

The DWTS pro and certified cutie responded this week to rumors that she is hooking up with her current partner, the R&B singer Mario.

"We have a completely professional relationship," Karina Smirnoff said. "I have a lot of respect for Mario. He is a great person."

Mario and Karina Again!

Mario and Karina: The 2008 Dancing With the Stars edition.

The New York Post reported this week that the current DWTS iteration of Mario and Karina were "making out by the valet with their hands all over each other" at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. Juicy gossip!

Mario's rep denies the claim, saying "this did not happen."

But a source close to the talented singer insists "there is definitely chemistry and a flirtation between the two." Then again, it is dancing.

Ah, what would Dancing With the Stars be without constant hookup rumors? Or the incredibly attractive and somehow still chaste Julianne Hough?

Today's New York Post links former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer to Wicked Models, a second high-priced prostitution ring busted this week.

Three weeks ago Spitzer stepped down as governor after being tied to Emperors Club VIP. His spokeswoman denies he was a "Wicked" client.

Purveyor of Sex

Based in midtown Manhattan, Wicked Models was run by a buxom blonde named Kristin "Billie" Davis, who also saw clients as a hooker herself.

The ex-governor regularly patronized Wicked Models according to financial documents and evidence unearthed in a yearlong prostitution investigation.

Kristin "Billie" Davis, 32, is presently being held on $2 million bail after entering a plea of not guilty to charges of promoting prostitution and money laundering.

A source said that Davis - not to be confused with Sex and the City star Kristin Davis, or with Kristen, the alias by which the disgraced politician knew Ashley Alexandra Dupre, now a household name - personally serviced Spitzer.

"She personally interfaced with Spitzer a number of times" since 2003, before she became a madam, a source close to Kristin "Billie" Davis said.

When asked about the allegation, Davis told The New York Post, "I can't talk about it." Spitzer's spokeswoman, who has all the credibility in the world at this point, said that "Mr. Spitzer was not ever a client of Ms. Davis."

It could happen. Just maybe.

And what a glorious two-hour ride it would be.

Lauren Conrad Smiles in Blue

"We have kind of talked about it," star Lauren Conrad tells MTV News.

"We have absolutely talked about it."

"I think if they were going to do a film of The Hills, they would basically film it like we do the show, and they would just edit it into a movie," the beautiful Laguna Beach alum added. "It would be like a really long episode!"

Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port of The Hills fame.

The Spring set of episodes of the third season of the MTV hit, which debuted this past Monday with the much anticipated "Paris Changes Everything," continues to follow Lauren Conrad & Co. in search of love and career success.

The Monday premiere scored The Hills' highest ratings ever, attracting 4.7 million viewers and cementing the show's status as MTV's cash cow.

This episode of The Hills was the most watched program on all TV for viewers aged 12 to 34 and the highest rated cable telecast of 2008.

While Bret Michaels searches for romance on Rock of Love, another member of '80s hair band Poison is going about it in a different manner.

Rikki Rockett was arrested on a rape warrant issued out of Mississippi as he arrived at LAX after getting off a flight from New Zealand.

According to the L.A. Daily News, Rikki Rockett, 46, was arrested on Monday at the airport and then booked into the Los Angeles County Jail.

Rockett was held on a strong-arm rape warrant stemming from Neshoba County, Missisippi, and appears to have been released from L.A. County custody.

Details about the warrant were not immediately available. Messages left with state police officials in Mississippi have so far been unanswered.

Rockett was born Richard Ream (really!) in Mechanicsburg, Pa., where he worked as a hairdresser, lifeguard, dishwasher, EMT and a suit salesman before he co-founded the band Poison with still-infamous vocalist Bret Michaels.

In random news, in late 1993, Rikki discovered that Poison guitarist Richie Kotzen was having a relationship with Rockett's fiancee at the time, Deanna Eve.

Kotzen was fired following this incident.

This is obviously a sad story, but Richie Sambora no longer has the Washed Up '80s Rockers Facing Legal Problems Club all to himself this week, at least.

Minnesota Timberwolves star Marko Jaric is "over the moon" about his new love, Victoria's Secret supermodel Adriana Lima. But don't believe celebrity gossip that he's shopping for engagement rings. At least not yet.

The couple have been dating for the last six months, but Marko Jaric says he was perplexed by recent celebrity news sites' reports talking about him checking out local jewelry stores for a rock for Adriana Lima.

"I am not shopping right now," the 29-year-old Serbian Sensation said.

"But I could start tomorrow. I am that close. I'm definitely not yet engaged, but it doesn't mean we're not thinking about it."

Marko Jaric may not hit many jump shots, but he's hitting Adriana Lima.

When the time comes, however, the entire process may come as a surprise.

"I would rather keep that my own secret," says Marko Jaric, who averages a pedestrian 7.7 points and 2.9 rebounds per game career.

"It's a life decision ... a private thing."

Jaric admits he's not normally such a romantic, but being with a Brazilian supermodel like Adriana Lima has changed him. Funny how that will do it.

"I was not the person to fall in love easily. I am a difficult person from that standpoint," he says. "Now, it's a little different situation."

Just give it time. This guy is so smitten it's not even funny. In a few months these two will be engaged just like Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge. Watch.

The Kate Bosworth sex scene with Jim Sturgess for their new movie, 21, is pretty hot. Just don't ask Kate for too many the details.

"We were both so drunk," the actress star said. "Jim and I became such good friends, we decided to have a couple of drinks, loosen up and go for it."

The on-set action is also pretty vague for Jim Sturgess.

"We were on Grey Goose, I think," said the British actor. "It was brilliant for about half and an hour. As we continued to drink ... it just became sloppy and messy. I couldn't stand up at one point."

One wonders if she takes the same approach with boyfriend James Rousseau.

Kate Bosworth remembers little of this Kate Bosworth nude scene.

The rail-thin actress would be probably pretty easy to liquor up, you would probably think, although you might be surprised - Sturgess recently told Marie Claire in an interview that Bosworth can actually "drink anyone under the table."

"Get a couple in her, and she's definitely a very fun and crazy girl," echoed another of Kate's 21 co-stars, Josh Gad.

The same day that his estranged wife Kimora Lee Simmons filed for divorce, music mogul Russell Simmons stepped out in New York with his new gal.

That would be the gorgeous model, Porschla Coleman. For those of you who are unaware, Porschla won the model competition on Star Search in 2003.

Kimora Lee who? Russell Simmons and Porschla Coleman appear quite happy.

Divorce never looked so hot to us. What do you think, fans? Is Porschla Coleman a bona fide upgrade over Kimora Lee Simmons, or just a cheap knockoff?
