Yesterday's release of The Hills trailer for the upcoming new season seemed to indicate that the show was coming full circle and winding toward its conclusion.

Lauren Conrad has now confirmed as much.

We Call Her LC

The MTV star, who fans of Laguna Beach and The Hills have watched evolve for years now, will finally be retiring from reality TV when the new season ends.

“My biggest thing with the show was that I wanted to walk away from it while it’s still a great thing,” she told Seventeen, which features her on its new cover.

“I always want to remember it that way. I gave MTV a deadline and basically said, ‘This is as long as I can do it and stay sane.’”

Despite becoming wealthy and famous as a result of her two hit shows, Lauren Conrad has indicated her desire for more privacy was becoming an issue.

Another factor that might have played into her decision? Unlike her past romances with Stephen Colletti, Brody Jenner and Jason Wahler, LC has kept her current relationship with actor Kyle Howard away from the MTV cameras.

The two have been exclusive for some time, although the 23-year-old, who is also a successful fashion designer, won’t even officially call him her boyfriend.

“[Kyle] is a friend,” Lauren Conrad tells the magazine. “I’m a big fan of labels, but the girlfriend one doesn’t always look good on me. Ha!”

The Hills may be wrapping up in 2009, but its star will shine on in the celebrity gossip universe for years to come. We'll make sure of it.

Kevin Federline can produce kids.

Sweet lord, can he ever. No one will ever take that away from the fertile one. But does that mean he can produce a successful kids clothing line?

Apparently, he's going to try, having been inspired by these lean economic times (which is ironic, as his ballooning waistline is very far from lean).

Given the state of economy, Kevin Federline can't fathom throwin' down $200 for phat True Religion jeans for his boyz, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

So, according to a Women's Wear Daily report, he wants to start a children's clothing line - and is in talks with Gerard Guez about a licensing deal.

Kevin Federline, who made an overnight stop at a Las Vegas trade show in the interest of research, said he was scoping out the styles for inspiration.

"It's a tough business, I'm trying to take it seriously and make a quality product, but not have parents pay $500 or something ridiculous for a pair of jeans," said K-Fed, who receives $20,000 a month in child support from Britney Spears.

"You buy your kids a pair of True Religions then they roll around in the dirt like kids do and a $200 pair of jeans is gone," the FedEx man added. "With this economy, I’m just looking to do something much more reasonable."

He plans on calling the new clothing like Federleezy Fo Yo Bad Economeezy. Just kidding. No word yet on the name of the line or a release date.

Would you allow your kids wear Kevin Federline's clothes? Chances are, they'd include a ton of faux diamonds and be four sizes too big.

Joanna Pacitti may have been disqualified from this season of American Idol.

But she's permitted into the bed of Mark Ballas any night of the week!

Indeed, the aspiring singer and the Dancing with the Stars professional have gone public with a relationship that reportedly began eight months ago.

The two most popular reality shows on the planet are colliding as Mark Ballas and Joanna Pacitti come out as a couple.

“She is the most supportive person in my life and she’s been great,” Ballas told People Magazine at yesterday's premiere of Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. “We get to spend a lot of time together [and] we do pretty much everything together.”

Pacitti agrees.

“I think we have the perfect situation. We both get each other and understand schedules and even on a musical level, I’ve never met someone that’s so passionate about music…that’s what I live for so it’s amazing to be with someone who gets it.”

Ballas previously dated his former Dancing with the Stars partner, Sabrina Bryan.

Or just Tokyo. But The Hills star's rumored relationship with Paris Hilton is all but confirmed now that he's been seen accompanying her on a business trip.

Here's a picture of the new couple at the airport prior to their departure for the land of the rising sun, with Doug Reinhardt looking thrilled to be there ...

Upon arrival, the pair were greeted by adoring fans, who apparently don't have much better to do, as they walked out of Narita International Airport.

Paris Hilton is in Japan to promote Samantha Thavasa clothing for some reason.

Doug Reinhardt? He's just along for the ride. Of her. Come on. No one dates Paris Hilton for her personality. It's all good, but a fact. We're just saying.

What would Lauren Conrad and Amanda Bynes say about their ex jet-setting around the world with the ho-tel heiress? Probably not a lot, except to thank their lucky stars that they dated him before he started slumming it this hard.

We kan't say we saw this event koming for Kim Kardashian.

The former sex tape star attended the 2009 Diamond Information Center Dinner earlier this week. It was an event hosted by actress Julianne Moore and featuring the former president of Botswana.

The private dinner honored various designers and diamonds, as Hollywood pretty much flaunted its wealth in the face of growing economic distress. That's always nice to see.

Here are shots of Kim at the ceremony. Click on each to enlarge:

Fans may remember Jesse Csincsak as Jason Mesnick's erstwhile rival for the love of DeAnna Pappas on The Bachelorette. Below are excerpts from a new interview Jesse recently gave in which he sounds off on Jason's starring turn on The Bachelor ...

Q: First of all, from the Women Tell All special, I don't know if we heard right, but are you in a new relationship?

Jesse Csincsak: Yes, I'm dating Holly Durst from the previous season of The Bachelor. I'm psyched. She's super-cute and very outgoing and fun to be with.

Q: So, how did you guys get together?

Jesse Csincsak: We were actually at a party at Les Deux in California, and I was actually still in my previous relationship. And everybody got introduced. Holly had some interest in going to grad school in Boulder, Colorado. Once I wasn't in a relationship anymore, I shot her a text message and said, “Hey, you know, if you still are looking for a tour of Boulder and the college, I'd love to go down there with you.” She ended up coming out and going snowboarding, and it's all history from there.

Q: I don't know if you've been reading the blogs, but there are huge potential Bachelor spoilers buzzing around about the end of this season ...

Jesse Csincsak: You know, every year, there's always somebody that comes out of the woodwork saying, “Oh, I know what happens.” And, you know, it's their claim to fame. My view on that is, hey, no matter what the outcome is, as long as Jason finds his true love, for him and Ty, more power to him. You know, I don't care what he has to do to be in love. I think there's people on this planet that would kill to be in love. So, I mean, you can't hate on the guy.

The second round of semifinal auditions on season eight of American Idol were scheduled for last night.

Unfortunately, Barack Obama decided that a nationally televised address to Congress, regarding the dire economic situation, took precedent over Paula's latest antics and Ryan's latest immature jokes.

The delay has simply increased anticipation for tonight's performances. Here's a quick rundown of who will take the stage, along with the odds of America voting each singer through to the finals:

  • Nick Mitchell (10-1): Sketch comedian that goes by the alter ego "Norman Gentle."
  • Adam Lambert (6-1): Theatrical, controversial, over-the-top stage actor.
  • Megan Corkrey (8-1): A font designer with a two-year old son named Ryder.
  • Kris Allen (20-1): Student at the University of Central Arkansas, majoring in business and not having a lot of air time so far.
  • Mishavonna Henson (12-1): 18 years old, California native, long first name.
  • Matt Breitzke (15-1): Likable welder, but may have lost "average Joe" status/popularity to Michael Sarver.
  • Kai Kalama (22-1): Plays guitar, ukulele, bass, piano and drums.
  • Jasmine Murray (5-1): Only 16 years old, adorable, strong voice.
  • Jesse Langseth (17-1): Dissed by Simon during the opening auditions; brother is Grammy Award-winner Johnny Lang.
  • Matt Giraud (3-1): Michigan native is a dueling piano player and early fan favorite.
  • Allison Iraheta (15-1): Junior high school student that has been signing since she was five.
  • Jeanine Vailles (30-1): Not a second of air time yet this season.

Matt Giraud, Adam Lambert and Jasmine Murray have each received ample screen time in their run up to tonight's semifinal performances on American Idol.

The Los Angeles Police Department is still investigating the leak into who provided celebrity gossip site TMZ with a chilling photo of a battered Rihanna that was taken shortly after she was allegedly assaulted by Chris Brown on February 8.

"They said they were looking into it vigorously," LAPD spokesman Lt. John Romero said, referring to a statement made by a superior officer. "We are not talking about the protocols because it will relate to this investigation."

A law-enforcement source tells E! News that the police believe they have identified the computer they believe to be the one from which the photo originated.

They have not figured out who transferred the image.

For its part, TMZ has said the photo was obtained legally. The site also says it believed it was not an LAPD photo, and are still not convinced that it is.

Chris Brown Ogles Rihanna

Per protocol, the LAPD has not formally identified Rihanna as the victim of what transpired between her and Brown on the morning of the Grammy Awards.

In announcing the investigation into the leak, authorities would only say that the photo was taken "during an official domestic violence investigation."

Meanwhile, the investigation into Chris Brown continues as well.

Police sources say prosecutors are looking for evidence to build the toughest possible felony case against the R&B star, who was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats but may ultimately face a variety of felony charges.
