If there's one thing Peter Andre takes very seriously, it's his children. If there's another, it's that hair. How does it stay in place like that? What product does he use?

Anyway. If there's a third thing, it's his reputation.

The ex-husband of Katie Price sued Britain's Sunday People earlier this year after they reported he had an affair while married to the busty model known as Jordan.

Andre called the infidelity rumors "untrue and hurtful" and apparently they were. A judge ruled in his favor and he won a substantial reward in damages over it.

He's equally adamant about proving he's a good father, too.

The reality star and singer is suing Now magazine for publishing a story this summer suggesting he was at fault for accidents suffered by Katie's disabled son, Harvey.

Peter Andre Smiles

Peter Andre has a reason to smile: He's a good guy!

Harvey's father is Katie's ex, Dwight Yorke, but Andre has raised him since he was very young and still raises him. His attorney released the following statement:

"Mr. Andre was also said to have demanded sick sexual threesomes from his wife, which horrified her and which she did not enjoy, feeling used and like a sex doll."

"Mr. Andre was said to be lying in portraying himself as a loving father and husband. He would never do anything to hurt his children, whom he loves very much."

The magazine admitted it lie and they accepted the story was untrue. Andre had sued the mag for £300,000, but no word on how much he was actually awarded.

Take that, fake celebrity gossip writers! Better watch your back and stick to Robsten or Jennifer Aniston when you need your fake headlines this week, OK! and Star.

Man. Either Kristin Cavallari really wants to stick it to Audrina Patridge, or The Hills producers are really working overtime to stir up the contrived drama we love.

The fake relationship of Kristin and Justin-Bobby Brescia has been a primary focal point this season. Justin-Bobby, of course, is Audrina Patridge's dirtbag ex.

She's moved on now, though. To Tal Cooperman, who also dated Audrina.

“It’s brand new. They’re having a lot of fun enjoying getting to know each other better,” says a source of Kristin and Tal, co-owner of DCMA Collective clothing.

“It’s not for the show. They hit it off and have been hanging out off-camera.”

All together now: Yeah, right!

Kristin Cavallari clearly has a type: Guys who have once hit it with Audrina Patridge, who MTV conveniently gives her the phone numbers of and pays her to pursue.

According to sources, Cooperman and Cavallari enjoyed a date night Thursday in Los Angeles, where they were spotted partying at an ESPN bash. Fun.

They also shared a sushi dinner at Nobu and kissing at West Hollywood hotspot Voyeur, where we're sure they tried to keep an extremely low profile.

“[Kristin Cavallari and Tal Cooperman] were making out on one of the club’s VIP stages after midnight,” says a clubgoer. “They were all over each other.”

The duo made sure to keep things under wraps (yeah, right, again!)  by leaving the club separately ... but only after sealing their night with a kiss. HOT.

We wish this new couple all the best. Although we don't expect it will last that long. Call us crazy. Give it a few weeks and she'll be with Corey Bohan.

The CBS producer accused of trying to extort $2 million from Late Show host David Letterman filed a motion seeking dismissal of all charges against him.

Attorney Gerald Shargel, who represents Robert Joel "Joe" Halderman, challenged the constitutionality of the laws in question in a 34-page document.

Judge Charles Solomon said he will rule on the motion at the next hearing on January 19. Prosecutors have until December 15 to respond to the motion.

Halderman is accused of telling Letterman in September that he would disclose the funnyman's sexual dalliances with female staffers unless he paid up.

The 27-year CBS veteran, a producer for the network's 48 Hours, was charged with first-degree attempted grand larceny and suspended from his job.

He pleaded not guilty, but prosecutors say evidence is "compelling" that he was trying to "destroy" Letterman's reputation and "humiliate his family."

Shargel, however, said that Joe Halderman is the father of two children, ages 11 and 18, has an "impeccable reputation" and denies any extortion plot.

Late Show Host

Can Joe Halderman really explain his way out of this one?

"There was no extortion," Shargel said Tuesday. "This was a commercial transaction, nothing more. [Letterman's] celebrity is why we are here today."

Many expected Halderman, who is believed to have financial problems that may have fueled the incident, would seek a prompt plea bargain in the case.

But his attorney said today there will be "no compromise."

Letterman's attorney, Daniel Horowitz, acknowledged as much, saying "this case will proceed to trial" and that Letterman "is prepared to testify."

Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said Letterman gave Joe Halderman a $2 million check and Halderman deposited the money into a Connecticut bank account the day before he was arrested and released on $200,000 bail.

The defendant's explanation? Halderman's attempt to sell the Late Show host a screenplay about Letterman's own sexual liaisons was a just business.

Not sure how if one will hold water. But his attorney says Joe Halderman should be applauded, not punished, for exposing Letterman's various workplace affairs, which he says "amounted to actionable sexual harassment."

Letterman's former personal assistant, Stephanie Birkitt, had a long-running sexual relationship with the host, and later lived with Halderman.

Here's a photo op for the ages: Levi Johnston, former Bristol Palin "fiance" turned Playgirl model, and Jon Gosselin, former reality star, in NYC's Times Square.

The occasion? The First Annual Douche Awards. They both cleaned up!

Just kidding, although they would have if it were a real event. Levi and Jon were set to appear on a panel for the syndicated entertainment show The Insider.

That's pretty much what Jon does every day of his life, but for Levi, who's been working out like a madman for his upcoming nude photo shoot, it was new.

Both of these guys have been assailed by their baby mamas lately.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who's actually Levi's baby mama's mama, said Johnston has a "desperate need for attention" for posing in Playgirl next month.

He recently filed for joint custody of son Tripp, which is sure to sit well with the Palins. He doesn't seem scared of the former Alaska chief executive, though.

Jon's estranged wife Kate has also slammed him for his antics.

Repeatedly. That banshee separated from the father of her eight children earlier this year, sending him into the greatest midlife crisis in American history.

Just one question remains: Who would you rather ...

From pain comes creativity. That's how Rihanna described letting down her guard and drawing from a private place to express herself in her new album, Rated R.

"I'm usually a very guarded person, so having to go in and reach deep into your emotions and personal things to say, it was very vulnerable," she told People.

Rihanna said the inspiration for her upcoming album, which will be released on November 23, come from "personal experiences mixed with rock and hip-hop."

Since February, when she was beaten by then-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna has had to deal with court proceedings and criticism for taking Brown back.

In Rihanna's 20-20 interview last week, she revealed that Brown shoved her into a car window, punched her several times in the face, bit her and more.

Rihanna: Wedding Dress?

Rihanna is speaking out like never before.

She said part of the reason she is going public about the assault in all its graphic detail is to help other women who have been through the same thing.

"I'm really a woman, a human being," she said. "I go through real situations. It's great to have the opportunity to be a voice for women around the world."

While accepting the Woman of the Year award from Glamour on Monday, presented by the model Iman, Rihanna entered the stage and shed a tear.

She claimed it was the PMS at work, and then happily continued to thank her friends, mentor Jay-Z, her mother and grandmother for all their support.

And she actually made a joke, ribbing herself for her ivory Stephane Rolland dress. "As usual, I decided do the tightest dress I could find," she said.

Toni Braxton's marriage is beyond repair - but can other man unbreak her heart?

Sorry, that was really lame, and probably not a reference people under 35 get.

Anyway, the Grammy-winning R&B star and Dancing With the Stars alum split from her husband of eight years, former Mint Condition musician Keri Lewis.

No word from the couple on the reason behind the split or whether a divorce is imminent, but the timing is suspicious considering one particular incident.

Some have speculated the breakup has something to do with Braxton's full-on lip-lock with singer Trey Songz during the taping of the Soul Train Awards.

All with Keri Lewis in the audience. Scandalous stuff, to say the absolute least.

Was Toni Braxton's kiss with Trey Songz behind her split with Keri Lewis?

Braxton, 43, and Lewis, 41, met on tour in 1997, married in 2001 and have two sons. Trey Songz is just 24. Maybe Toni is channeling her inner Puma.

In the latest leaked phone tape involving the insane Lohan family, Lindsay's awful mom Dina says Lindsay was dating Heath Ledger when he died in January 2008.

His death devastated her, according to Dina. This was among the more explosive revelations in the leaked phone conversation between Dina and Michael Lohan.

"She was dating Heath when he died," Dina reveals. "I don't know if you know that, but I know 'cause I would drop her off. They were friends. Very, very close, OK?"

She said that the actor's death "really f----d her up."

For what it's worth, it's unclear what the extent of the celebs' relationship was, but Lindsay Lohan and Heath Ledger were romantically linked in December 2007.

Dina feared for Lindsay's life, too: "Because when she's drunk or takes an Adderall with it she will do something like Heath did in a second without thinking."

Gettin' Lo-Han

Were Lindsay in Heath really in a relationship?

In the 2008 call, Dina discusses how desperate the situation was for her daughter. "She cannot be alone," Dina tells Michael. "When she sleeps here she sleeps with me... she has fears from being little and what you did to us."

Dina also defends Lindsay's former assistant Jenni Muro, who yesterday threatened legal action against Michael, telling him that Muro was going to save Lindsay.

Lindsay's mother was also worried about her relationship with Samantha Ronson, telling Michael she thought Lindsay should walk away, but it wasn't that easy.

"It's [not that easy] for an irrational person who has a problem with her DNA and alcohol and Adderall and asthma and every other things she's got wrong with her."

So true. Click to listen to Dina's phone call to Michael ...

Who among us hasn't had a regrettable email incident? Sending your lawyer something meant for your friend because their names are similar, or replying to all when you meant to reply to one person bashing someone else on the email, for example.

While embarrassing, most such incidents are harmless and funny in retrospect.

Not so much for a married Cornell Business School IT guy named John, who managed to out his affair with married co-worker Lisa by BCCing the entire school.

We're not even sure how that's possible, but he found a way. And now their hot, steamy affair, which apparently involved a lot of eighth-grade-reading-level sex puns in addition to sneaking around, is public knowledge.

Cornell

John and Lisa apparently enjoy tickling each other and much more.

What would Andy Bernard say about a scandal at the alma mater he so loves to name drop? We can only imagine The Office quotes that could result from this.

You can follow this link for the entire email exchange, but we've excerpted some of the (extremely unsafe for work/school) highlights for you after the jump.

Remember, people. Just use AIM next time ...
