Who better than reality TV’s favorite BFF to cover the“Friendship” issue of Glamour? Lauren Conrad does the honors, joined by friends Whitney Port and Lo Bosworth.

“They’re my support system,” says Lauren, who went on to divulge a rare confession about her famously shiny, wavy hairstyle: “These are all extensions.”

Gasp.

“I chopped my hair off to my shoulders. I thought I was doing a chic bob. It was so bad,” says the chick lit novelist and designer, who also dishes on body image.

“I’ve never felt a push to be stick thin,” the 24-year-old says. “I try my best to work out and eat healthy, so mostly it’s about being in shape and having energy.”

A great support system always helps - especially when you're dealing with body issues every girl faces but living under a microscope in L.A., Lauren Conrad says.

But even with all that work, the star has to accept her imperfections. “About a year ago, I looked down and thought, ‘I have cellulite. Where did that come from?’ I went through treatments; [my body] was like, It’s not going anywhere.’”

While she left The Hills (click here for the final season trailer), and is in the public eye a lot less, she seems healthier and happier than ever. Makes you think!

Our gallery of Lauren Conrad pictures proves, you don't have to dress scantily (cough, Kristin Cavallari) or get a ton of plastic surgery (cough, Heidi Montag) to be beautiful. It's nice that young girls have a role model like this one.

Was Bruce Springsteen born to run into the arms of Ann Kelly? Did she see him dancing in the dark ... naked? Did they go for a ride in the tunnel of love?

Does anyone born after 1980 get any of these bad Bruce Springsteen jokes? It's unclear. But Ann clearly alleges that she had an affair with the rock god.

Or at least her husband alleges she did.

Kelly, a housewife living with a mortgage broker husband and two kids in a $600,000 New Jersey suburban home, says Bruce entered her (life) in 2005.

The married Springsteen showering her with concert tickets, serenaded her and confessed she was on his mind during his touring, court records allege.

The details of the alleged tryst are all coming to light now because of Ann Kelly's husband of 17 years, Arthur Kelly, filed for divorce on March 27, 2009.

Mmm. Looks like the Boss has a type. Right, Ann Kelly?

The affair between Kelly and Springsteen, who has three children with wife Patti Scialfa, began with chit chats at the gym and became much more.

Arthur Kelly says Ann Kelly enjoyed a rendezvous with Bruce Springsteen while Arthur was laid up in a hospital with heart trouble, and references marriage counseling sessions at which The Boss was the main topic of discussion.

Rumors that Springsteen was having an affair with a redheaded knockout who was a dead ringer for Patti Scialfa surfaced a few years back, too.

Arthur says Ann told him that he would stand at the end of her treadmill as she ran. It must have been a tempting vantage point for the "Thunder Road" singer because he once told Ann she had the "nicest ass" in the gym, Arthur says.

Ann allegedly told Arthur's mom several times that "it made her feel good that Bruce Springsteen was very interested in her," the papers say.

The housewife allegedly conscripted her friends to be on "Springsteen watch," and asked for intel on when Springsteen's wife would be away.

A spokeswoman for Springsteen declined to comment on the cheating allegations. However, a friend of The Boss responded, "Bruce and Patti continue to have a terrific marriage and are very devoted to each other and their children."

Celebrity romances come and go so often, it's hard to get really attached to Hollywood couples. But who are we kidding, we're suckers for certain ones, so when relationships crumble for our favorite stars, it makes the room a little dusty sometimes.

With a Sandra Bullock-Jesse James divorce likely looming and ready to join the ranks of the most painful celebrity break-ups, here's a look at 10 that hit us hard:

Timberlake and Biel Photo

10. Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner. Okay, they were barely a couple ... and may still be. But this split rocked us to the core ... we really wanted it to work.

9. Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson. Is Lindsay going to die? Is she going to return to men? Will they ever stop feuding on Twitter? We cannot deal.

8. Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen. The split of these two stars? Not wholly unexpected, given that it's Charlie Sheen. But it was still scandalous and sad.

7. Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. Two sweet kids, seven years of marriage, always seen smiling and laughing together. All a facade, apparently.

6. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Before Katie Holmes, Cryise was married to Nicole for 10 years and had adopted two children before splitting up in 2001.

Those were the good ol' days ...

5. Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. Before she was sexual napalm and starring on low-rate reality shows, she was younger, hotter, married sexual napalm starring in higher-rate relative shows and also producing hit pop songs. Ah, 2004...

4. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Admit it, how hard were you rooting for them to get married? Admit it ... how hard are you still rooting for that?!

3. Jon and Kate Gosselin. When seemingly harmless reality TV couples go haywire and become far bigger stars based on the celebrity gossip they generate.

2. Sandra Bullock and Jesse James. We're also sticking a fork in this one because she can't possibly take him back... right? The Oscar-winner and the bad boy seemed to be a uniquely wonderful fit ... until along came Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

1. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. The ultimate Hollywood fairy tale couple had it all. A-list TV and film success, reeediculous good looks and a happy home life. Hearts shattered around the world when Brad and America's sweetheart split.

When and if they split, Jesse and Sandra will be up there with Brad and Jen on our list of most memorable, painful celebrity break-ups. Which one were you saddest about?

NBA star Shaquille O'Neal is being double-teamed by his wife and his mistress, and not in a basketball manner. Or a sexual manner, for that matter.

Shaq's estranged wife Shaunie O'Neal and enterprising mistress Vanessa Lopez are employing the same investigator to dig up dirt on the big fella.

It all started when Shaunie filed for divorce in November and hired an P.I. to find any info on Shaq's infidelity that could boost her financial settlement.

The investigator discovered Shaq’s multi-year affair with Vanessa Lopez, who's now represented by powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred and suing Shaq.

As if that didn't help Shaunie gain enough leverage, she actually reached out to Allred and Lopez – not to bash them, but to make the affair public!

2-ON-1: Vanessa Lopez and Shaunie O'Neal are hacking Shaq ... legally!

“Shaunie tried to convince Vanessa to go public about the affair before Vanessa did go public,” an inside source said. “And she wanted Vanessa to go to the police too, based on allegations she heard about Shaq harassing her."

“What she discovered about Shaq and Vanessa, gave Shaunie the ammunition she needed to file for divorce and try to get the money she wants.”

Vanessa Lopez eventually came forward, and then did Shaunie one better, claiming Shaq harassed her and even enlisted pals to "shut dat bitch up."

Using the info Shaunie's investigator found, such as Shaq's text messages, she's suing for assault, emotional distress, invasion of privacy and more.

Lopez was disgusted by  info shared by Shaunie, who even believes that someone put a GPS tracking system on her car. Shaunie is taking a no holds barred approach, pushing full steam ahead with the divorce and aiding Lopez as well.

Talk about good team defense turning into transition offense ... or something!

Michael Jackson's father, Joe, is "horrified" at the prospect of Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team arguing that Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal dose of Propofol.

The defense believes MJ woke up shortly before noon on the day he died, when Dr. Conrad Murray stepped out of the room, and decided to up his dosage. Big time.

Akon and Michael Jackson

Murray's lawyers are ready to argue that Michael's addictive personality makes it more than feasible that he injected far too much Propofol and stopped his heart.

But Joe Jackson ain't buying it.

"I don't believe it. It's not true," he said, asserting that Murray covered up evidence. "Why would he [Dr. Murray] hide all the bottles if such a story were true. The Coroner's report shows the story is not true. It really upsets me to hear this."

Joe Jackson never met a Michael Jackson CD lawsuit he didn't like.

While Murray's story definitely seems a bit out there, one can never really trust the motives of Michael's father, either. Sure, he's probably upset Michael died.

But any chance to make money, he pounces on!

Joe has also fired a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray, claiming he needs a big payday his actions were "reckless" and "amount to second degree murder."

Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, won't go that far, but adds, "His [Dr. Murray's] story is medically inconsistent with the autopsy findings ... I would need to see the photographs of the scene in order to assess his story."

He's been saying for some time that the involuntary manslaughter charge against Murray is not enough. Looks like Joe's now taking things into his own hands.

When it comes to self-love, Jessica Simpson is all about it. No, we don't mean that in a dirty way, just a high self-esteem way. She's comfortable in her own skin!

If she were to pick one favorite feature, though, what would it be?

"I like my nose, that's my favorite body part," she tells FOX News.

We'd have chosen these two body parts in a virtual dead heat.

"I do have a bump, but I like my profile," she continues. "But I don't think anyone else has my exact same nose, which I think is unique and just a little flawed."

Jessica Simpson's favorite body part on full display.

The alleged singer / actress says she "needed" last year's scrutiny on her appearance, which reached a fever pitch following those fat Jessica Simpson pics in mom jeans.

"I needed to find some light in the dark place I was in. People's judgments about me and my weight are none of my business. I found something that will help me deal."

What that is, we can't say. But she adds: "You really have to know who you are before you can truly fall in love and give your all. I don’t think a man can define you."

Okay then. Her new reality show The Price of Beauty has redefined terrible, even by VH1 standards, and has been floundering since its forgettable debut last month.

Its March 15 premiere netted just 1 million viewers, losing out to a rerun of NCIS, a TruTV series called Operation Repo and the History Channel's Pawn Stars.

It looks like Michael Jackson's addictive personality and need for instant gratification may become a critical component of Dr. Conrad Murray's legal strategy.

Yesterday we talked about how Dr. Murray's defense will argue that Michael Jackson killed himself by pumping a lethal dose of Propofol into his own body.

This happened, allegedly, when the doc left the room to use the can. Murray says he personally administered only an eighth of the amount in MJ's system.

That's far-fetched if you ask us. But to bolster the story, sources familiar with the defense's strategy say they plan to show it was in character for Michael.

Michael Jackson was a demanding celebrity, lawyers for Conrad Murray will claim, and a man-child who wanted what he wanted when he wanted it, period.

Even if it posed a danger to himself.

BLAME THE VICTIM: It's the only card Dr. Conrad Murray has left, and he's playing it. Valid or outrageous? A jury may have to make that determination in court.

Amazingly, the defense will use Coke to prove its point.

Not Coke as in cocaine, but plain ol' Coca-Cola. Michael Jackson apparently consumed massive quantities of the legendary soft drink, despite its caffeine content.

Jackson, an insomniac, knew full well that guzzling the stuff would make it hard to sleep, but he did not care. When the time came to sleep, he turned to drugs.

The defense will provide examples of MJ hyping himself up with caffeine from soda, then using drugs - including Propofol, an anesthesic - to knock himself out.

Basically, this is all meant to establish that he was an individual who demanded instant gratification, making the idea of Jackson waking up, seeing Dr. Murray was out of the room and self-medicating with massive amounts of Propofol believable.

Is it? What do you think? Did Michael Jackson play a role in his own demise, or is this shady doc trying to blame the victim to save his own a$$?

Jersey Shore only aired 10 episodes this winter, but that was enough to lure in millions of fans, make celebrities of the cast and introduce plenty of new vocabulary words, slang terminology and acronyms into the pop culture lexicon.

Case in point: The lovely Katy Perry was seen headed from the gym to Fred Segal's in W. Hollywood over the weekend wearing a shirt proclaiming simply GTL.

GTL, for those unfamiliar with Jersey Shore quotes, stands for Gym, Tan, Laundry. As in the daily routine of some of the Garden State guidos we grew to love.

While Vinny Guadagnino said that he prefers BPB (basketball, pool, beach), he was sadly outnumbered among the male cast members, and the term stuck.

Here's Katy giving props to DJ Pauly D and The Situation:

GTL

GTL: Katy Perry knocked off the first part, but somehow we don't imagine she went tanning after this photo was taken. Laundry? Maybe. Stay tuned for more updates.

Having already whored herself out for 15 minutes of fame and a couple of quick paychecks, what's left for Michelle McGee to do but ... ref Celebrity Boxing!?

No, seriously, she is. One of the bout's participants? Hailey Glassman, former Jon Gosselin plaything. Heartwarming to see these mediocre mistresses unite!

  • Michelle McGee Naked Pic
  • Celebrity Boxing Ref

Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman, who was romantically linked to Hailey at one point, confirmed to the New York Post that Jesse James' mistress will referee a May 7 bout between Glassman and porn star Gia Lynn.

Hailey Glassman and Jon Gosselin parted ways bitterly in December. He accused her of vandalizing his place, she accused him of having a two-inch package.

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee was the first of several Jesse James mistresses to cash in by blabbing to the media. Friday, the tattooed mother of two returned to work at Pure Platinum strip club in San Diego, Calif., where she performs topless.

Michelle McGee will officiate Hailey Glassman's next blowout fight - and we're not talking about when she slashes up Jon Gosselin's apartment with a butcher knife.

When she's not feuding with Chelsea Handler or getting pissed off at her haters on Facebook, McGee enjoys long walks on the beach and reading The Economist.

We totally made that up. The only real question left to ask here:

Which mediocre mistress would you rather ... you know?

Tiger Woods has landed in Augusta, Ga., for his golf comeback at the prestigious Masters tournament. Players, media and many fans are thrilled to see him.

His family? Not so much.

Wife Elin Nordegren Woods and their children were nowhere to be seen and are not expected to join the gallery when the tournament tees off on Thursday.

While no official statement has been made, she was last seen last week, without Tiger, checking out the Sony Ericsson Tennis Open in Key Biscayne, Fla.

Tiger, who was seen cracking jokes with a fellow PGA pro and even greeted reporters as he headed to a practice facility, will address the media Monday.

While he recently gave exclusive one-on-one interviews to the Golf Channel and ESPN, Tiger Woods' 2 p.m. press conference will be the first of its kind since ...

You know. The subject of his wife's whereabouts is sure to come up, but everything we've read suggests that we'll see a pissed-off Elin bail on the Masters.

After moving back in with him and helping rebuild his image, the couple took a step back amid a new batch of revelations from his mistress Joslyn James.

Nasty, violent, depraved text message revelations.

Elin has not indicated if she will divorce Tiger, citing concern for their kids, but certainly seems reluctant to support him publicly, at least for the time being.

JUST FYI: Because we know you care so much, Joslyn James and lawyer Gloria Allred will be holding their own press conference after Woods' media Q&A.
