They may or may not be dating, and may or may not have hooked up on the set of their movie, but if there's a hotter pairing than these two, we haven't see it.

Nor have we seen The Bounty Hunter, which looks terrible.

Still, Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston showed some very public displays of affection on the red carpet of the London premiere of their new film Thursday.

What do you think? Just friends and co-stars? Or something so much more? You be the judge ... but there's no disputing the obvious chemistry here ...

From The Bachelorette to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition!

The lovely Jillian Harris recently traveled to Slaughterville, Okla., where she pitched in to rebuild the home of Brian and Audra Skaggs, whose two-year-old son, Jhett, has a weakened immune system after receiving a heart transplant.

“The Skaggs reminded me of ‘my kind of people,” says Jillian, who is still engaged to Bachelorette winner Ed Swiderski. “They love country music, campfires, family.”

Something about that hard hat definitely suits Jill, too ...

Jillian Harris is never afraid to get her hands dirty.

Her expertise as an interior designer certainly came in handy, but Jillian says she also benefited personally from the experience on the feel-good reality show.

“After catapulting into the public eye, getting my heart broken, traveling the world, then falling in love, getting engaged, all while traveling the world again, and then dealing with a public media storm, I was frazzled,” Jillian says.

“I missed the ‘regular,’ spunky energetic Jilly, and worried if she would ever come back. As cliché as it sounds, this experience brought me back to me."

It was also one that made her cry: “The entire process brought me to tears,” says the Canadian cutie. “happy tears, grateful tears and tears of hope.”

Somehow we can't see Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi reacting similarly to such a situation, but that's just us. What an adorable sweetheart Jillian is.

Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi have been engaged 10 days. Or one for each beautiful baby The Bachelor couple apparently wants to make some day.

"The other day it was 10!" Vienna exclaimed when her fiance told E! News, in response to a question about starting a family, that "We want five kids."

Five. Ten. Either way, too many little Viennas for the world. Fortunately, she may agree. "No, no, no, like 2-3," Girardi said, "but not for a few years."

Pavelka and Girardi may be have babies on the brain following the romantic season finale of The Bachelor, but walking down the aisle? Not so much.

"We're going to wait awhile before we start talking about wedding dates," Vienna Girardi said. "We want to have some normality in our relationship."

Fortunately for Jake, normalcy means taking part in reality show. The pilot is competing in his third of the last year, signing on for Season 10 of Dancing With the Stars.

Also par for the course for Jake? Controversy. The inevitable rumors that Jake's been cheating with Chelsie Hightower, his cute Dancing partner, have already surfaced.

Vienna insists she's not bothered by that noise.

"I actually love Chelsie," she said. "She and I are very, very good friends. I was in the studio today, watching them dance... I'll be sitting in the front row every week."

Will Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi last?

Four pill bottles found in the apartment where Corey Haim died yesterday morning, medications that included the generic versions of both Vicodin and Valium.

The same doctor prescribed all four drugs just days before Haim died.

The drugs provided by a prominent L.A. psychiatrist were hydrocodone (Vicodin), diazepam (Valium), haloperidol (anti-psychotic) and Soma (muscle relaxant).

The L.A. County Coroner's Office would not comment, but sources say that all were prescribed the same day, days before Haim died of an apparent drug overdose.

No word on how many (if any) pills were missing from the bottles, which has become a topic of debate in the eerily similar Brittany Murphy death investigation.

Corey Haim (1971-2010).

Law enforcement sources say they believe Haim died from an accidental overdose of meds, though nothing is final until the Coroner's toxicology reports are in.

There have been reports that Haim, who fought a long battle with substance abuse, admitted in the past to taking as many as 85 Valium pills in a single day.

Haim, a 38-year-old former child star, collapsed in his mother's apartment and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead 2 1/2 hours later.

The actor had been dating Daisy de la Hoya, a fellow reality star, in the week's leading up to his passing. She is understandably quite broken up about it.

So You Think You Can Dance and America's Best Dance Crew judge Shane Sparks officially entered a not guilty plea to eight counts of child molestation today.

He was arrested back in mid-December for allegedly performing several lewd acts on an then-underage female over a span of several years, beginning in 1994.

A decade and a half later, Shane Sparks faces child molestation claims? It sounds suspect, to say the very least. His accuser has not yet been publicly named.

Sparks is due back in court on April 20. His lawyer has called the case a "Hollywood style extortion" attempt and says his client will be completely vindicated.

Shane Sparks Mug Shot

SAD SHANE: Sparks joined our esteemed gallery of celebrity mug shots late last year, but will the charges against the dancing machine stick? We'll find out soon enough.

Andrew Young somehow had (or still has) a John Edwards-Rielle Hunter sex tape, which a North Carolina judge ordered the former Edwards loyalist to hand over.

Having failed to do so, Young is being held in contempt and jailed.

The Raleigh News & Observer reports Chatham County Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones has ordered Young and his wife, Cheri, jailed up to 75 days.

Jones believes Andrew Young lied about how many copies of the sordid John and Rielle sex tape exist, as well as how many people have viewed that nastiness.

"There were things told to the court, under oath, in affidavits, in testimony that turned out to be inaccurate," the judge said, laying the smack down on Young.

Young, whose best-seller The Politician outlines his role in helping orchestrate and cover up Edwards' affair and love child with Rielle Hunter, said he found the John Edwards sex tape while cleaning out an house she lived in during the affair?

He said another copy of the sex tape was handed over to the FBI for its ongoing investigation into John Edwards alleged theft of PAC funds to pay off Rielle.

A grand jury indictment of Edwards is said to be imminent by some sources. Hunter, claiming theft of personal property, has also gone after Young in court.

Some suspect that the legal assault being waged by Hunter may be masterminded by a certain shrewd former trial lawyer behind the scenes - John Edwards.

John and Rielle teaming up? Wouldn't that be ironic.

Tiger Woods has summoned Ari Fleischer, former adviser and White House Press Secretary under George W. Bush, to be his PR man as he plots his return to golf.

According to the New York Post, Woods is planning to compete at the Arnold Palmer Invitational March 25 in Orlando, and Fleischer is on board with the planning.

“They were in his living room this week going over strategy in two weeks,” a source said, noting that “I would be shocked if he didn’t play the Arnold Palmer.”

Palmer himself reportedly has told confidants that Tiger Woods is definitely playing. Quietly, the people running the tournament are preparing for a media crush.

As for Ari Fleischer's role?

How involved the former Bush aide will be remains to be seen, but appears he is a big part of the healing process that began with Woods' apology speech February 19.

Can Ari Fleischer rebuild the Tiger Woods brand?

Knowing he eventually has to stand before people publicly and take questions, which he didn't then, is why Woods sought out the advice of the renowned spin doctor.

After resigning his White House post, he formed Ari Fleischer Sports Communications, focusing on crisis response and control, in partnership with IMG Sports agency.

Woods is repped by IMG (and has been counseled by Obama and Clinton).

Amid his admission to steroid use, disgraced baseball star Mark McGwire is a Fleischer client. He also advised the Green Bay Packers following their divorce with Brett Favre, and the NCAA on how to repair the image of college football's BCS.

Good luck with that one.

On one hand, Fleischer has his work cut out after everything Tiger did to sabotage his own image. On the other hand, Tiger's already back together with Elin Woods, and it's not like his current handlers could possibly have done a worse job.

What do you think? Can Tiger's image be salvaged by Ari?

Kate Gosselin is out for Dancing with the Stars glory. But regardless of whether she can shock the world and win, she's determined to have a blast trying.

“I really want to win. It’s just that the dancing part is getting in the way of winning,” she says. “In my mind, I’m winning. In my actions, not so much.”

The spirit willing, the flesh weak. But Kate says that no matter how long she lasts on DWTS, the important thing is that she does her best and has fun.

“If I last two weeks on the show, I’ve shown my kids that hard work and perseverance pays off,” says Gosselin, who'll be partnered with Tony Dovolani.

“And if I don’t win, then at the very least I’ve shown them that you don’t always have to come in first. You just have to do your best, keep on trying.”

Kate Gosselin, Long Hair

Can Kate Gosselin make a run at the Dancing title?

As for her critics who say she can't balance fame and raising the eight children she shares with former husband Jon Gosselin, Kate asks "why can't a mom have fun?"

Truly, a question for the ages.

When people say that she's a bad mom, apparently this "destroys" Kate. Somewhere, Jon is screaming "You're a bad mom, you're a bad mom, you're a bad mom!"

Just kidding. He said he wishes Kate luck on the program. Whether he means that is another story, but at least he's putting on a good face publicly ... this moment.

In other news, dude's package is supposedly really small.

Former child star Corey Haim, who passed away yesterday morning, had eight film projects in the works and was dating a new love interest before he died.

That being Daisy de la Hoya of VH1's Daisy of Love fame.

While it's all relative, things appeared to be looking up for Haim, who famously battled substance abuse for years. He collapsed at home early Wednesday.

His recent love took to (what else) Twitter to express her public devastation: "I'm sooooooo devastated right now," Daisy de la Hoya Tweeted this morning.

"This is the worst day ever I can't believe this."

Daisy de la Hoya and Corey Haim were a thing.

"Daisy loved The Lost Boys, and she always had a crush on Corey," a source close to de la Hoya says. "Their first official date was two weeks ago, but they'd been hanging out a little while before that. Corey invited her to the Playboy Mansion."

"Corey Feldman came, too."

Daisy de la Hoya apparently wanted to help Haim with his struggles. "Daisy knew Corey was doing a lot of drugs, especially prescription meds," the source says. "She thought he was kind and talented, and she wanted to rescue him."

"She became his confidant over the last few weeks. He opened up to her a lot. They were having a lot of fun getting to know each other and seeing what would happen. Corey told Daisy she is a beautiful person with a beautiful heart."

We hope Corey has finally found some inner peace and wish Daisy, along with all the actor's family and friends, nothing but the best in this tragic time.

Heidi Montag and her husband are parting ways. Business-wise.

Having been managed by Spencer Pratt since she was 19 (five years ago), Heidi is replacing her pimp with Malibu-based psychic named Aiden Chase. Seriously.

"After the incredible experiences I have had healing my life and truly connecting to my dreams with healer intuitive Aiden Chase, I have officially asked him to become my manager," Montag says, apparently without any sarcasm.

"An intuitive psychic leading my team gives me an edge no one else has."

Business Associates

BIMBO SEEKS NEW PIMP: Spencer just got fired by Heidi.

"No longer is my husband the face of my business or managing my career," she adds. "I am going to have Aiden Chase help manage my new life and career in a very different and positive way with light and love. The time for change is now."

"Never mix business and pleasure. We are no longer Speidi but Spencer and Heidi. I am so excited for my future and the bright successes coming my way."

Don't hold your breath, babe.

Heidi said she made the move to "clear out the negative energy" around her. Call us crazy, but Spencer was the one trying to stop the plastic surgery binge.

Despite severing business ties, the gruesome twosome will stay married. Phew.

We don't know if we could handled life without these gratuitous photo shoots.
