Well, until you tell us!

Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively showed off her supermodel-long legs in a peplum Victoria Beckham frock last year in N.Y.C. She's always a fashion favorite.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson got major style points at the Grammys in the structured black dress last weekend. Beauty. Who looked better? Vote below!

Amazingly, a magazine deigned to feature Jennifer Aniston this week and not mention the fact that she 1. is lonely; 2. used to be married to Brad Pitt.

It's Architectural Digest. Seriously.

This fine publication spends absolutely no time talking about the star's love life, opting to focus on her newly renovated Beverly Hills home instead.

Quite a concept!

Architecture Digest

Jennifer Aniston in her new home ... scandalous! Right? Anyone?

There is this one line. According to the mag, the house "originally had his-and-hers baths, but Aniston turned the 'his' into a spa with a soaking tub."

Way to stick it to men and embrace your single life, Jen! Although from what we've heard, Brad still loves her, so she may have to change it back.

They may never get back together, she and Brad will be forever linked. This issue hits newsstands February 9. Last year at this time, it featured ...

Brad Pitt.

Looks like a rough patch for Gossip Girl co-stars Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick.

They're still together, but things have seemed very tense between them the past few weeks, explains an insider, who says it's even spilled over onto the set.

Jessica’s been unable to hide her emotions on set, reports In Touch, citing a crew member who recently witnessed her in tears while in her dressing room.

Making matters worse, Ed doesn’t seem concerned with his girlfriend’s feelings.

On January 29, the British actor and a male friend were seen entertaining two ladies at the Melrose Bar & Grill in LA - and Jessica was nowhere in sight.

“It looked like he was on a double date,” says an onlooker, and according to an eyewitness, Ed and a friend took off with two girls after dinner in LA.

Looks like Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka don't have a monopoly on The Bachelor drama. Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick are dealing with their share.

Last season's Bachelor stars are getting married on TV next month. With that comes plenty of drama. And possibly DeAnna Pappas. And Melissa Rycroft.

Molly and Jason got engaged last fall, and agreed to tie the knot on TV in a two-hour wedding special airing March 8, presumably for millions of dollars.

But will it be worth it? The couple is already fighting over the guest list, according to a friend, as ABC wants to turn the wedding into a Bachelor reunion.

Producers want Melissa Rycroft - Jason’s #1 choice, who he dumped for Molly after the season - and former Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas to be there.

Jason and Molly of The Bachelor

Molly Malaney reportedly isn’t happy about ABC's wedding meddling.

“ABC is basically controlling the guest list, and they’re inviting former [Bachelor stars] Molly and Jason don’t even know,” the insider says. “Molly is fine with that."

"However, she’s not especially thrilled about Melissa attending her wedding, because she thinks it will turn into a circus.” Which is probably what Mike Fleiss wants.

In any case, DeAnna Pappas, who negged Jason on The Bachelorette season finale, tells In Touch that she’s looking forward to the magical, staged event.

"I’ll be there with my boyfriend, Stephen,” she says, declining to give us a last name. “I'm so happy that Jason found Molly, as they really are the perfect couple.”

We agree. We're sure Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney will get through these pre-wedding jitters. With Chris Harrison officiating, how can they go wrong?

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are often criticized for having too many kids. But if the stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting didn't have such an enormous brood, a six-year-old Arkansas girl might not be alive today. Think about that!

Two of the Duggar sons, Joshua and John, are being hailed as heroes after family members said they helped save the life of a girl injured in a car crash.

A three-car pileup happened in front of Joshua Duggar's car dealership, Fort Smith, Ark., TV station KHBS reports - and it's a good thing he was there.

“I thought it was a fender bender, no big deal, happens quite often here actually," Joshua Duggar said. "Then I realized there was a little girl involved."

The airbags had been deployed and she wasn't wearing a seat belt. Joshua called 911 immediately and then brought the unconscious girl into his office.

Great job, Joshua and John ... we know you're in there somewhere!

She was not breathing, so he and brother John started CPR. Paramedics showed up and with the Duggars’ help, they were able to revive her!

“They realized there was something blocking her airway. She had been eating, and it caused the blockage of the airway,” Joshua Duggar said.

The girl, Maddye, is hospitalized in critical condition, but family members say she wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for Josh's quick thinking.

Not that he takes any credit.

“The Springdale paramedics did a phenomenal job," he said. "I was just a piece of the puzzle, a very small piece at that. I'm just grateful."

Maddye was flown to Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock, the same hospital where the 19th Duggar baby, Josie Brooklyn, was born.

Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag will always be linked by The Hills.

Even a full season after LC retired from the show she made famous, and years after she and Heidi stopped being close, she's still asked about her.

LC was reluctant to comment on the recent Heidi Montag plastic surgery debacle this morning on Good Morning America, but did so diplomatically.

Asked what her reaction was after seeing Heidi's new appearance, which some liken to that of a circus freak, Conrad paused and said, "It's a look."

That it is. And that's as nicely as one can put it. Well done, LC!

What a Natural Beauty

Lauren Conrad won't criticize her former BFF, but says surgery isn't for her.

Conrad, who just celebrated her 24th birthday Monday, said despite the pressures on young women in Hollywood, she won't be going under the knife.

Asked if she'd had or considered plastic surgery, the best-selling author and fashion designer laughed and said "not so far, no... it's a personal choice."

"Everybody's different. Everybody needs to do what's good for them."

Lauren Conrad left The Hills after five seasons and is now focusing on her fashion line at Kohl's, plus her work as an author of young adult fiction books.

Montag is focusing on undergoing plastic surgery pretty much constantly and coming out with some of the worst music in human history. Team Lauren!

Heidi Montag looked better ...

Former teen idol Leif Garrett was found in possession of heroin earlier this week. That's generally not a positive thing from a legal or health standpoint.

Leif was popped Monday morning in Los Angeles for possession of a controlled substance. Police caught him at the Metrolink station in downtown L.A.

Garrett was taken into custody and placed behind bars.

Leif Garrett Mug Shot

Leif Garrett wasn't released until this morning.

According to reports, the 49-year-old was carrying black tar heroin in his shoe when he was arrested. Cops saw him shaking and sweating profusely at the time.

They asked if they could perform a search of his person. At first, Garrett said he didn't have anything on him, but then later admitted he had heroin in his shoe.

Cops seized the drugs and arrested Garrett on the spot, before transporting him to a nearby jail where he stayed behind bars until just a couple of hours ago.

Garrett was released on $10,000 bail and is due back in court February 24.

Stroke? What stroke?

Deadliest Catch Captain Phil Harris woke up from a medically induced coma yesterday, according to reports, and even did so with typically salty flair.

Sons Jake and Josh Harris, who are also featured on the Discovery Channel series with their dad, said he "showed some good signs of improvement."

Jake and Josh say he was "squeezing our hands and even summoning his trademark captain's bluntness by telling doctors and nurses, 'Don't f--k up.'"

Somehow not surprising!

Here's wishing Phil Harris (middle) a speedy, salty recovery.

The elder Harris, a Deadliest Catch fixture since the show's launch, was found unconscious during an offload of crab (it's in season) late last week.

He was airlifted to Anchorage, Alaska, where endured 12 hours of surgery and the Cornelia Marie skipper was placed in a medically induced coma.

Harris had been placed in a coma to reduce brain swelling.

The stroke he suffered occurred near St. Paul Island, Alaska. The Emmy-winning Deadliest Catch takes place there and on the high seas, of course.

Get well soon, Phil!

The Bachelor hopeful Vienna Girardi is portrayed as pure evil by the other aspiring Jake Pavelka trophy wives. We always felt this was a little bit unfair.

If the allegations made by the new issue of Us Weekly are true, however, that's a different story. Maybe Ali Fedotowsky and Co. are onto something.

The Bachelor, Vienna Girardi

Vienna Girardi is a apparently an unemployed former Hooters waitress who withdrew the last $5,000 from her ex-husband Josh Riley's bank account.

The reason? To pay for breast implants, obviously. Hey, when you're a topless model for some random calendar, you do what you gotta do, right V?

Oh, and he was deployed in Iraq with the Marines at the time, during which he also says she cheated on him. Jake Pavelka, you'd better beware!

Vienna Girardi: Even worse than portrayed on The Bachelor!

"She took every bit of his money," Vienna's former mother-in-law Gale tells Us. "I know for a fact that the boob job was the first thing she had done."

What's more, when Josh Riley returned from his tour of duty (he was injured in Iraq during an explosion), Girardi had moved on ... and not told him.

Vienna "locked his belongings in storage and would not tell us where they were," Gale said, noting that they were married 10 months after eloping.

Poor guy also discovered that while he was in Iraq, "she slept with one of my buddies I was deployed with. I'm 99 percent sure she cheated on me."

Adds Riley, "Marrying her was a mistake." Sounds like it, man!

Any advice for Jake, who picks her on the season finale, according to Bachelor spoilers we've read? "I'd rather not comment," Riley said. "I'd like to forget."

Original Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering is ready to tie the knot a second time. He's engaged to his girlfriend of just four months, Erin Kristine Ludwig!

Steve Sanders slyly changed his Facebook status from "in a relationship" to "engaged" last week. Thought you could fly under the radar? Think again Ian!

Ian Ziering Lives!

Ziering followed up the low-key announcement by relaying some of the finer points of his courtship, identifying the lucky lady as Erin Ludwig. She's cute!

Here's a photo of the soon-to-be-married pair:

"She's a nurse, we're planning a spring wedding and we've been together since Labor Day '09," he said, and while that's a fast courtship, sometimes you just know.

Especially when you're Ian Ziering. How many more shots do you have?

Congratulations to the happy couple!
