Of all the victims that handsome Italian-American businessman Raffaello Follieri allegedly duped, actress Anne Hathaway fell the hardest.

The stunningly beautiful and talented Hathaway, 25, thought she had found her prince charming in the 30-year-old real estate magnate.

Very Pretty Actress

What she found instead was a slimy white-collar criminal.

Even as some friends say they warned Anne about Raffaello Follieri, she stuck by him for months as allegations of his wrongdoing swirled.

In April, he bounced a check ... for $215,000. In May, Follieri's charity - on which Anne once served on the board - came under investigation by the New York State attorney general's office for tax irregularities.

That was the last straw for Anne Hathaway, and not a moment too soon.

Just last week, Follieri was arrested on charges of fraud and conspiracy, as well as money laundering. On June 24, he was branded a "con man" in court by the FBI and prosecutors, accused him of bilking investors of millions.

Despite their differences - one is known for her promiscuity and haughty attitude, the other for her innocence and charm - we can't choose between Lindsay Lohan and Ashley Tisdale.

Therefore, we'd like to wish a happy birthday to each of these young celebrities!

The photos of each below nicely sums up their contrasting reputations. First, a shot of Lohan (newly 23 years old), trying to look seductive on the beach:

As for Ashley Tisdale: what a cutie!

Here's the 22-year old birthday girl, cradling her adorable puppy:

If you're Britney Spears, this is some devastating news from the business world. Starbucks has just announced it is closing 600 stores in the U.S.

Despite the best efforts of Spears and her ilk, the market for $7 lattes has eroded a bit amid widespread inflation, staggering energy prices and corporate layoffs.

Typical Britney Fashion

Underperforming stores will thus be eliminated. Simple economics.

Word has it Britney did not take the news well, however ...

GIMME MY FIX, Y'ALL!! In dire need of caffeine NOW, an enraged Britney Spears readies for an violent umbrella attack on Starbucks Founder/CEO Howard Schultz.

On the plus side, Britney still has her gas stations... although, even ExxonMobil announced it will be jettisoning hundreds of those by 2010.

Lean times, people. Lean times.

Cue the violins for Michael Lohan.

A sorrowful voice mail left by the ex-convict to daughter Lindsay Lohan has hit the Web. In the audio clip, Michael apologizes to his daughter for constantly talking to the press about her life. His bad!

Here are excerpts from the message:

I know that you were annoyed that I gave an interview and my need to comment about the people you are around... Honey, I'm sorry. I am telling you, I just love you. And I promise you, I absolutely promise you, I will not mention your name in the press, at all, ever again.

Michael Lohan loves attention more than his family.

One of the reasons why I got so concerned is because we used to talk all the time. We were always texting, and then the texting was sporadic. You weren't returning phone calls, so I was concerned.

Look, I love you, honey. Please, please don't do this anymore. Pick up the phone and talk to me. Everything from now on is between you and me [with the exception of this voice mail, which I leaked to make me look sympathetic]. And I promise you, I will not go back on it, I will not break my word...

Will Lindsay take Michael up on his word? Do you even care if she does? And what does possibly illegitimate daughter Ashley Kaufmann think of all this?

We'll have more on As the Lohans Turn when news breaks!

Any any loyal fan of the WWE knows, Hulk Hogan is the owner of 22-inch pythons (i.e. biceps) that can inflict some serious damage.

Based on a motion ex-wife Linda Hogan filed this week, it sounds as though she's certainly aware of how dangerous the former wrestler can be.

Hulk and Brooke

Linda is claiming she's in "constant fear of her life" because Hulk sits outside their properties and "relentlessly and methodically follows her."

In audio clips obtained by TMZ, Hulk responded to such accusations on Bubba the Love Sponge's radio show yesterday. Listen to the tape now - and then take pity on children Nick and Brooke Hogan.

Linda Hogan and Hulk Hogan were happy and in love until reality television camera invaded their lives.

Really sweet, smart, thinner and even tanner than on TV!

The Hills star launched her latest beauty collection for Mark cosmetics last week, and in turn, won over Glamour magazine's Petra Guglielmetti.

A Blonde Lauren

Donning a strapless dress from her holiday collection, Conrad dazzled the magazine's editor-writer, who shared some impressions of LC:

  • Yes, her hair really is that perfect.
  • She's thinner, tanner and shorter (at five-three) then she looks on TV!
  • LC is shockingly well-spoken, considering the inane conversations we generally see her involved in on The Hills, reciting tons of stats from memory when describing the cosmetics line's new charitable initiatives.
  • Lauren Conrad is really sweet, almost a little shy. No stuck-up vibes whatsoever. LC walked Guglielmetti to the ladies room when she couldn't find it, despite 10 publicists who could have done so instead.

This just in: Paris Hilton isn't merely untalented, she's also unoriginal.

We've already caught the reality TV star wearing the same dress as both Kris Kardashian and Kim Kardashian. Even in her sex tape, Paris didn't seem to trying any new positions or anything.

Scarlett Johansson, Nude Dress

Now, the spoiled socialite has been spotted sporting the same outfit that Halle Berry looked so beautiful in a few months ago. Compare the celebrities below and let us know:

Who wears this dress better?

Once you choose sides in this fashion face-off, decide between Halle Berry nude and Paris Hilton nude. Enjoy!

Kristy Morgan should date Brad Womack.

As millions of shocked women know, the latter reality TV star actually turned down both finalists on The Bachelor a couple seasons ago, making him the scorn of all female existence.

Last night, meanwhile, Morgan pulled a Womack.

She was chosen as the winner of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila... only to reject the show's star because the script called for it in order to ensure a third season of this dating competition she was confused.

Kristy Morgan once posed nude for Playboy. She really did seem like the perfect mate for Tila Tequila.

One might wonder why Morgan remained on the series given her feelings, or lackthereof.

But that would only be apt if one first accepted the premise that a woman (Tila Tequila) who was famous for posing naked a lot and having a lot of MySpace friends was actually on reality television to find true love (in either a man or a woman!) and not to simply garner as much publicity for herself as possible.

We don't even know why we are inflicting this upon you, but here you go anyway. Heidi Montag has a new song. It's called "One More Drink."

Somewhat interesting title from Miss Christian rock album, who said earlier this week that she's always felt this "crazy connection" to God.

Why do we care? We don't know, honestly. Just click here.
