Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole just split. But it's a bro he misses most.

According to reports, Brody is more upset about his "breakup" with former best friend Doug Reinhardt than his Playmate of the Year girlfriend of nearly 15 months.

Last night, Brody was at Guys & Dolls in W. Hollywood with a new girl on his arm, but looked sad when he didn’t interact with his former pal, who was also there.

“Brody arrived at 11:15 with two guy friends,” a witness at Guys & Dolls said. “He was joined less than 30 minutes later by a blonde, very attractive woman.”

“She was with him most of the night. It was clear this wasn’t their first meeting,” the source said, but Brody, who endured a similar falling out with former BFF Spencer Pratt, had (platonic) eyes for someone else entirely: Doug Reinhardt.

Doug, along with his notorious girlfriend Paris Hilton, had their own table and were joined by about 10 friends - none of whom was The Hills star - witnesses say.

“Doug did not speak to Brody, and you could see Brody was distracted by Doug being there," reports a spy. "He seemed very sad that they weren’t speaking.”

“Everyone stayed until close ... Brody left hand-in-hand with the blond.”

Well, that's good at least.

Brody Jenner recently said he hasn’t seen much of his baseball bud since Doug reconciled with the ho-tel heiress/socialite and insists their friendship is over.

“We used to be best friends, now I never see him. Some people just get so involved in relationships they lose their friends," he lamented. "Partners come and go, but friends are there for you always. I’m done. Paris has taken him away.”

In an ironic and tragic example of life imitating art, the late Brittany Murphy's character in the horror film Deadline appears lying lifeless in her bathtub.

The actress' sudden death on Sunday, when she was found in the bathroom and could not be revived, sent the DVD rental company Redbox scrambling.

For obvious reasons, efforts to remove this particularly disturbing image from the DVD cover and other promotional materials are underway nationwide ...

Brittany Murphy stars in the horror film Deadline.

Murphy collapsed in the bathroom Sunday morning and, after unsuccessful attempts by family and paramedics to revive her, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Suddenly, the DVD cover seemed a lot less appropriate.

"We are removing the box art images from our displays," Redbox spokeswoman Laura Dihel said. "We will continue to carry her film, but not featuring the box art."

A much funnier and less morbid example of promotional material pulled in light of current events? Tiger Woods Accenture ads. You wanna talk about irony ...

Don't get us wrong. It's nice when stars are comfortable in their own skin and don't feel the need to slather on the makeup like Snooki from Jersey Shore.

But that doesn't mean they have to get dressed in the dark.

Jessica Simpson, for example, looked a little rumpled and worse for the wear yesterday as she made her way to see her sister's Broadway show Chicago.

With messy hair, zero makeup and wearing a plaid jacket-thing of some kind, the alleged singer and actress certainly left an impression on passersby.

Whether it was a positive impression, or along the lines of the impression we got watching her get violated by a candle, is in the eye of the beholder ...

Where is Tiger Woods?

The disgraced golfer's whereabouts have become an even greater mystery than what his final tally of mistresses will reach when all is said and done.

Showing the type of discretion that helped him get away with countless affairs (well, until he wrecked his car), Tiger has been AWOL for weeks now.

Seriously. No photos. No sightings. Nothing.

Despite reports of him setting sail to the Bahamas with pals, Tiger Woods' yacht, named Privacy, has actually never left its marina in Palm Beach, Fla.

That sucker is still docked.

Tiger Woods' whereabouts - and next move - are unknown.

So where the heck is Tiger? Chasing this new chick? Golfing by himself? In sex rehab? Still hooking up with Rachel Uchitel on a different, secret boat?

He has not been seen in public since the day after Thanksgiving, when he crashed his SUV outside his home in Windermere, Fla., and the cops came.

Tiger is rumored to be dealing with his sex scandal with intense marriage counseling with wife Elin, followed by late-night golfing sessions, sources say.

We'd believe it.

From all accounts, the fallen star doesn't want to throw in the towel on his marriage, despite the seemingly impossible odds of a reconcilation with Elin.

Whether he can actually pull it off - and where and when he decides to surface publicly from wherever he is right now - is anyone's guess, however.

In turns out Kate Gosselin, who had her sights set on a talk show career, is not going to be part of a new show that she shot a pilot for, according to reports.

The reason? Executives thought she was too controversial.

In September, Kate was one of several hosts for a Momlogic TV pilot. The show was described as The View for working moms, but it may not even happen.

With multiple hosts (Kate, Paula Deen, Lee Woodruff, others), the show was designed to tackle topics such as teenage pregnancy as well as lighter fare.

TV execs passed on Kate Gosselin. This time around.

Executives believed Kate was too controversial for the show, however, and didn’t think she was ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel.

Deen was being pushed as the show’s star, even in the multi-host format, and there was some concern that Kate Gosselin’s notoriety was upsetting her.

The decision to drop Kate doesn’t mean no more Kate on TV, however. She will be back on TLC in the spring with a new show, which is in development.

TLC says it is "fully committed" to Kate’s new show, even as it works to finish developing its concept. At the same time, it's working to finish Jon Gosselin.

If there's anything sexy Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester knows, it's how to switch up her style (and career, as she's an aspiring singer now too).

In two recent appearances, she not only changed her hair, but split her attention between lips and eyes, going with dramatically winged shadow.

The Tonight Show is not known for breaking news, but Conan O’Brien had some last night, revealing the newest addition to the list of Tiger Woods mistresses.

By now, Tiger's extramarital affairs are common knowledge, but this one will still shock you, as it came completely out of left field (and the girl's not his type).

At this point, Tiger should really consider heading to rehab for sex addiction, as has been rumored, because this is 12 women and counting. That we know of.

During a wrap-up of 2009's films, Conan showed viewers a deleted scene from one of this year’s hits that featured a lucky lady linked to the world's #1 golfer.

This is one you didn't see coming ... even if Tiger wishes he did:

Amy Winehouse was formally charged with assault earlier today in connection with the recent brouhaha she started at a local theater. Anyone surprised?

The 26-going-on-56-year-old soul diva was arrested after she turned herself in at a police station with her lawyer, a Thames Valley Police official said.

She was charged with a public order offense and common assault under the name Amy Civil, following her Saturday melee at Milton Keynes Theater.

Winehouse was granted a divorce from her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, in July, and is therefore not technically named Amy Civil ... if she ever was.

Anyway ...

Health Personified

One never knows what to expect from this nut job.

She is free on bail and must appear in court on January 20. Police did not provide details on the incident, but British media have had a field day with it.

The Sun reported that the singer allegedly heckled the cast, struggled with a member of the staff, bled on some actors and attacked the manager.

Winehouse is no stranger to roughhousing. She acquitted earlier this year of assaulting a fan who asked for a picture (aptly-named Sherene Flash).

A judge said he could not be sure if she lashed out at the woman deliberately, though police said Amy Winehouse was drunk when she punched her.

Who's next? We'll find out soon enough.
