We've been hearing the rumors.

Beginning in late July, people began speculating that George Clooney was seeing Elisabetta Canalis nude. This was pretty much established as (lucky) fact.

Well, now he's gone public with his new flame, putting any doubts to rest.

Well, going public is a stretch. They keep a low profile, but aren't hiding.

Here's George Clooney with his (bandaged) arm around her in Italy:

The day before the premiere of his movie, Men Who Stare at Goats, the couple made an arrival at the Venice Film Festival in the famed European city.

Italian papers gushed over the pair they're calling "the next Brangelina."

That's a tad premature, as there's no good nickname potential (Canalooney? Gebetta?) and they haven't created many kids and become the subject of constant cheating rumors, but it's an apt comparison in terms of beauty.

In any case, Clooney and the woman better known to local media as "La Canalis" or simply "Eli" have been inseparable the past three weeks.

Clooney was introduced to his new love interest in Rome, but apparently "carried a torch for Eli" even while still dating now-ex Sarah Larson.

Larson became the first girlfriend to accompany the perpetual bachelor and ladies' man to the Oscars. Will Elisabetta Canalis be the next?!

Katie Price is used to giving quickies to Peter Andre.

That said, it was pretty much par for the course that their divorce, which was made official today by London's High Court, took a mere 42 seconds to complete.

Their four-year marriage was deemed "irretrievably broken down due to both parties' unreasonable behavior." Somehow he got lumped in with Katie there.

The district judge said, "Given that I have to exercise discretion in determining what to permit to disclose to the press, I find it difficult to do that without the parties and their representatives to express their views to the court."

He said details of quickie divorce can be made public.

"I think the press are entitled to know the basis on which the decree was pronounced, and each was on the basis of unreasonable behavior," he concluded.

Peter Andre is hereby free to pursue a new, less insane wife.

Both Katie Price and Peter Andre sued each other for divorce, and they are taking extra precautions to keep their divorce papers a secret from the media.

We'll see how long until the tawdry, accusatory details of their split get out - and what information was included in them for all the gossip-mad world to see.

Something about her banging Alex Reid, for sure.

Peter Andre and Katie Price are able to remarry in six weeks when the decree absolute is granted. We hope she can hold off that long, difficult as it seems.

Following recent rumors that Prince William and Kate Middleton are planning to marry (sometime before 2012) come reports that Prince Harry is preparing to reunite with longtime girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, with whom he broke up early this year.

Wouldn't that be something?

The hot pair have met on a number of occasions over the summer both in London and at the house Harry shares with William in Shropshire, England.

"Harry is still besotted with her and she can't get him out of her head, even though she's been seeing other guys," a friend of Prince Harry said.

"I don't think that he and [Chelsy Davy] have fully resolved some of the problems between them yet but we all think they'll give it one last shot."

The Daily Mail reports that the two are exchanging messages on Facebook. The pair will meet up this weekend at Prince Harry's 25th birthday party.

Prince Harry is training to be a helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps and South African-born Davy, who dated him for years, was believed to be concerned that he wasn't putting enough commitment into their relationship.

Before breaking up in January 2009, the two were together at:

  • The Concert for Diana together in July 2007.
  • The wedding of Peter Phillips, his cousin, to Autumn Kelly, in May 2008.
  • Prince Charles's 60th birthday party for family and friends at Highgrove, his Gloucestershire home, late last year.
  • Various polo matches of Harry's.

In a 2005 interview, Prince Harry said: "I would love to tell everyone how amazing she is but once I start talking about that, I have left myself open."

It sounds like he's still open ... to rekindling the passion with his former flame. You know it's just a matter of time before they're an official item.

There have been rumors, but now we have proof.

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have rekindled their love! Cue the obligatory OK! Magazine cover featuring Jessica Simpson and her "revenge diet!"

The pair were spotted at McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon in New York City over the weekend. Here's a very cute picture of the rekindled couple ...

Looks like Nick and 'Nessa are giving it another go.

"They seemed very laid back and were very friendly to the staff and fellow patrons," an eyewitness said, noting that the two called it an early night.

Vanessa and Nick, who split in June, clearly couldn't keep away from each other for long. They have been spotted in NYC and LA in recent weeks.

Here's hoping these two stay together and happy!

Here's something you won't read in any The Young and the Restless spoilers - Michelle Stafford is expecting her first child this December, via a surrogate!

Stafford, 43, has won two Emmys on the CBS daytime drama. She relied on a surrogate mother after struggling through fertility treatments and surgeries.

"After a three-year journey through hell, I'm elated, ecstatic and lucky to be able to announce I'm expecting my own child via surrogate," Stafford said.

She also confirms she's expecting a girl.

Michelle Stafford, who is single, first tried artificial insemination, then vitro fertilization. She looked into adopting after deciding to start her own family.

"I never wavered in my desire to be a mother," she says. "But I did waiver on aspects of the process. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life."

"This entire process has been very, very difficult to do on my own," Stafford says, "and has made me realize the importance and reason for a partner."

"Dating men and telling them I'm expecting in December is a little different," she adds. "I need to find someone who wants the same things as I do."

Congratulations to the expectant mom!

According to new reports, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer no longer have the distinction of True Blood stars who get naked on and off set to themselves.

Evan Rachel Wood and Alexander Skarsgard are more than co-stars, if you believe the gossip queen known as Perez Hilton, who cites a "reliable" source.

His intel comes from the set of Straw Dogs, a movie being filmed right now in Shreveport, La., and which stars Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard.

The source claims that Evan Rachel Wood flew in Friday to be with Skarsgard, supposedly, and he was overheard talking about hanging out with her.

There are even pictures of the two allegedly together in Louisiana.

Alexander Skarsgard and Evan Rachel Wood may be dating.

Supposedly, A-Skarz and ERW have been hooking up ever since they met on the set of True Blood, the HBO series gaining in popularity by the week.

What do you think of these two together?

Hot? Not? Couldn't care less as long as Alexander Skarsgard is shirtless? Marilyn Manson is an idiot? All of the above? Comment on the potential pair below.

Hey! Wait! What about me! I was pregnant recently too! Hello!

What inspires pregnant celebs to volunteer every piece of information they can muster, we have no idea. But Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is clearly jealous of Kendra Wilkinson and Kourtney Kardashian getting attention from being knocked up.

Why else would she offer this insight no one cares about?

Making the media rounds for her role on Melrose Place, Ashlee stopped by The Rachel Ray Show (her interview airs September 15), where she said getting impregnated with the spawn of Pete Wentz didn’t affect her physical prowess.

At. All. If you know what we mean (we don't). She said:

“I could do the splits when I was nine months pregnant. I could put my leg over my head still. I used to be a ballerina,” the sister of Jessica Simpson said.

Why a nine-months-pregnant woman is even attempting splits, we have no idea. Nor do we really want to know, to be perfectly honest. TMI, Ash. TMI.

What a cute, harmless human being with the brainpower of an infant. And that Bronx Mowgli Wentz is pretty cute in his own right, now that we think about it.

The Labor Day weekend arrest of San Diego Chargers star Shawne Merriman has seen comments from attorneys, police officials and even the Chargers GM A.J. Smith, but none of the parties actually involved had commented - until now.

Shawne Merriman sent a statement to FOX Sports regarding the incident that led to a "citizen's arrest" filed by reality TV star Tila Tequila against him. She says Merriman assaulted her, choked her and physically restrained her.

Merriman's side of the story? Tila Tequila, his girlfriend, was drunk and out of control, and he was only acting to keep her safe. His statement reads:

"On September 6, 2009 the San Diego Sheriff's Department responded to a citizen's complaint that was initiated by Tila Nguyen (a.k.a. Tila Tequila).

I was taken into custody based upon that complaint. At the time, I was concerned about her welfare given the intoxicated state she appeared to be in and I encouraged her to stay until safe transportation could be provided.

Shawne Merriman and Tila Tequila were/are apparently dating!

We would all do our best to help a friend if we considered their actions to be detrimental to their safety. I in no way caused any harm to Ms. Tila Nguyen.

However, paramedics were called and she was examined but no injuries were reported. She was released and has since returned to Los Angeles, California.

There have been no charges filed against me. I want to thank the San Diego Sheriff's Department for their professionalism. I will continue to cooperate fully.

I look forward to clearing my name regarding these false allegations. I want to put this behind me so I can focus on a successful season for the Chargers."

Neither Tila Tequila nor her reps wanted to comment ... well, except for by bombarding her Twitter page. Here's what she says about Shawne's allegations that she was drunk. No way that's possible, because, obviously:

Oprah who? Rapper Ludacris has given away 20 cars to people who wrote in about their struggles to keep their jobs for a lack of their own wheels.

Ludacris said he was taken aback after reading thousands of essays by people struggling or unable to buy cars needed to get to work or find jobs.

The 31-year-old rapper felt he could step in and move them ahead, partnering with a suburban Atlanta dealership for Sunday's contest giveaway.

"People are getting laid off, and now are looking for jobs," Ludacris said. "To be efficient, you need some transportation of your own to get there."

"That's why I wanted to give back to those who need it."

Each of the used vehicles included free gas for 30 days. Winners were responsible for tags, registration, tax and insurance. About 4,000 contestants submitted a 300-word essay to the rapper's foundation, explaining why they deserved a car.

One of the most touching stories Ludacris read was by Mading Duor, who moved to the U.S. after his mother, father, and five brothers and sisters were killed in Sudan. His son was killed by a drunk driver in Atlanta a few years back.

"His story touched my heart," Ludacris said. "He's endured so much in his life and he's still here standing. I'm very proud to have helped him."

Duor, 33, has been able to keep a steady job at a school, but each day he felt stressed about how he was going to get to work. No longer.

"I'm so happy, I'm nervous," said Duor, who won a Nissan Maxima. "When I look at my new car, I say to myself, 'Is this really happening?'"

Crystal Beauford, 26, a single mom who takes the bus to work and school, now has a Saturn Ion. She has to learn to drive stick, but it's all good.

"This is going to help me so much," Beauford said. "It's a blessing."
