There's a new love interest in Twilight star Ashley Greene's life, and no, it isn't Robert Pattinson nude. Although it does have fur and fangs ...

The 22-year-old actress, who plays the pixie-like vampire Alice Cullen in the popular series, recently adopted a new puppy named Marlow.

"I wasn't looking for a dog, and I happened to see her picture online," said the Florida native, "and I was just like, 'I have to have that dog.'"

The lucky canine in question - a white Toy Fox Terrier - spent the evening in the lap of luxury as Ashley Greene lovingly cradled her throughout much of the For Joseph launch party at the new Kitson Melrose in West Hollywood.

The twosome even posed for pictures with Greene's fellow on-screen vampire, Kellan Lutz – Marlow showing excitement by dozing and shivering.

"I'm already so that girl that brings her puppy to an event," Greene told People. "I just got her today, and was like, 'I can't leave her home alone all day!' "

As for how Marlow got her name?

"I really liked the name Harlow, but that's Nicole Richie's kid's name, so I thought that might not be entirely appropriate, so I changed the first letter."

Ashley Greene will be reuniting with Lutz in the upcoming movie Warrior, and will also reprise her role as Alice in the 2009 sequel to Twilight, New Moon.

In recent weeks, speculation has grown that John Mayer has moved on from his relationship with Jen Aniston by enjoying his new plaything Scheana Marie.

While the rock star has been quiet on the topic - except to deny he's with anyone - Scheana Marie has been quite willing to discuss their relationship.

In an interview with YoungHollywood.com, she explains that she first met John about a year ago while working at an event he attended with Aniston.

"She told me how pretty I was," the aspiring actress, whose full name is Scheana Marie Jancan, recalls. "She was sooo sweet. We all had some drinks."

It was only a few weeks ago, says Scheana, after his latest split from Jennifer Aniston, that she and the douchebag rekindled their "friendship."

"We were both going through a breakup at the same time," says the 24-year-old former Hawaiian Tropic model. "No one's cheating on anyone."

Does that mean that John and Scheana are a couple?

"He's not my boyfriend," clarifies Scheana Marie.

"We're hangin' out... You can leave it to your imagination."

Okay, whatever that means.

While she sort of denies any romance, Scheana Marie Jancan is open about the things she loves about John Mayer. And oh, how wonderful he is.

"I love his personality... he's funny... He can be, like, a dork," she says. "He's very considerate of other people."

Scheana also reveals that she and John often text each other and that these little messages brighten up her day... but they're not dating, people.

A man failing to take responsibility for a child he helped bring into this world may be the most disgraceful, cowardly act imaginable.

But if there were ever a situation where you could understand the dad going AWOL, it would be one in which the baby mama is Nadya Suleman.

Octomom and 1 Kid

The infamous Octomom - who just added eight more babies to her brood of six young kids - says their dad is the same, unidentified sperm donor.

Luis Ceballos apparently isn't buying it.

In an interview with In Touch magazine, Luis, calling himself Nadya's ex-boyfriend, says he thinks he fathered her eldest son, 7-year-old Elijah.

"I want to get a DNA test on that first kid," he said, manning up.

Who can blame Luis Ceballos for hitting this, 14 kids ago?

Luis and Nadya Suleman were allegedly tight when he worked as her driver during the time she worked the pole at the San Diego club Spearmint Rhino (she denies that she worked there and is threatening to sue over such claims).

Luis, who'd gone years without kissing and telling, says he banged Octomom in the back of his limo, and didn't use protection. Sorry for that imagery.

"Right around the time she stopped stripping and disappeared, I found out she was pregnant," he said. "That is why I think the kid is mine."

We admire your honestly, Luis, we really do. But we also feel sorry for you and won't hold it against you if you flee the U.S. and never come back.

Then again, Orange County social services would probably welcome freeing at least one of the Octo 14 from the clutches of America's Most Hated.

In celebrity weight loss news, Rebecca Romijn has dropped nearly 60 pounds after welcoming twins Dolly and Charlie in December - and without a workout plan.

How the heck did she do that, Jessica Simpson our staff wonders?

"Breastfeeding is the very best diet I've been on. It's amazing," she says.

"It's like you have to eat 5,000 extra calories a day or you can't produce enough food for them. So, that's been fun as well."

That's a great tip ... we guess.

"We're working outside of Toronto in Hamilton, which is about an hour away [from where husband Jerry O'Connell and the twins are staying] - and I am still nursing [the babies] around the clock, so, we have to do a lot of milk runs..."

Okay, that's really enough.

"I think within the first three weeks, I took off, like, 35 pounds without doing anything!" she said, adding that the twins keep her too busy to hit the gym.

"I haven't been able to work out that much because I have twins," says the Ugly Betty star. "It's impossible to get back into a regular schedule."

She admits she isn't completely back to her pre-baby body.

"I'm not pretending to be back to the shape I was in beforehand. I still have a ways to go. We've got Spanx underneath almost everything," she says.

Rebecca Romijn is currently filming The Love Child in Canada.

After taking a pre-honeymoon trip to Cabo San Lucas to film her latest crappy music video, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are back in L.A.

We know you were dying to know their whereabouts this second.

Assault Weapons Ban

Rest assured, the new bride is craving fast food – and saying some prayers for their well-being: "We landed!! Now I am just praying for health!"

That is what Heidi Montag – who wore a mask while in Mexico to fend off the swine flu epidemic – writes on her always-scintillating Twitter page.

NEWLYWEDS: After last weekend, Heidi and Spencer are legally married and free to continue dominating celebrity gossip websites as man and mostly-plastic wife.

She was "so sad to leave" Mexico, but The Hills star Twatted once again before boarding her flight, saying she's "ready to get out pig flue [sic] country."

Montag, upon landing at the airport (and being greeted by "crazy paps"), was "ready for some taco bell!" but took time to send out another Tweet about marriage: "Thank you God for another day of life!!! and for waking up as Mrs. Pratt!"

You are now officially dumber for reading this, and are free to return to your life. Oh, who are we kidding. We can't get enough either. Except for Heidi Montag nude in Playboy. We might have to draw the line somewhere.

Heroes starlet Hayden Panettiere has apparently auditioned for director Kenny Ortega's updated remake of the classic 1980s flick Footloose.

The actress recently sang for filmmakers (the new Footloose flick is being turned into a full-blown musical à la the Broadway version), and "they were really impressed ... no one realized what a good singer she is," says an insider.

In addition to being the topic of myriad Heroes spoilers, Hayden Panettiere actually has a slew of musical credits to her name. Not only did she release a pop single, "Wake Up Call," but she's recorded tunes for various soundtracks.

If she makes it the next round, Panettiere will likely have a dance audition, followed by a script reading with Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford.

While Crawford isn't officially on board to star as Ren McCormack (played by Kevin Bacon in the original), sources say the gig is pretty much a done deal.

For those unfamiliar, Ren is a city boy who moves to small town where rock music and dance are prohibited. He decides to revolt and overturn the laws!

Hayden Panettiere would play Ariel Moore, who falls for Ren much to the chagrin of her boyfriend and her Bible-thumping father. The original flick included hits like the title track and "Let's Hear It for the Boy." Awesome.

The remake was supposed to star Zac Efron, who dropped out. Dancing With the Stars' Julianne Hough is also being considered for Ariel. Julianne says she's done with Dancing on TV, so she's got the time if she's interested ...

Kelis has filed for divorce from fellow rapper Nas, according to reports.

The Milkshake star is currently seven months pregnant with their child.

A rep for Kelis apparently said: “I can confirm she has filed for divorce. We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time."

It is claimed attorney Laura Wasser (who has also represented Britney Spears) filed a divorce petition on behalf of Kelis on Thursday, April 30.


The court documents apparently state the catch-all "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split between the music stars.

Nas and Kelis have been together for nearly seven years since meeting on a video shoot and have been married since January 2005.

Asked recently by MTV about Kelis, Nas said: “She's great, man. She's doing good. [We are deciding between] a few baby names. It's kinda hard.”

A judge recently extended Britney Spears' restraining order against former manager Sam Lutfi through 2012, but don't expect him to go quietly into the night.

Lutfi has filed an appeal challenging the ruling and denying that there is a legal need to keep him 100 feet from the embattled pop superstar at all times.

Bryan Freedman, his attorney, told E! News that his client is fighting the order because, contrary to what Spears' camp claims, she initiated contact with him.

"There was absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Britney Spears was suffering substantial emotional distress as required by the statute," said Freedman.

"In fact, the evidence was just the opposite," the attorney added. "It was Britney reaching out for Sam's help, and all Sam did was get her a lawyer."

"There is no evidence of threats or stalking or anything whatsoever."

Freedman argued in the appeal, filed Wednesday, that Sam Lutfi never threatened or harassed Britney Spears, and claimed that he was only laboring at her behest.

"We believe the appellate court will overturn the ruling," Freedman said.

"Restraining orders were created for stalkers and people who make threats, and the only evidence in this whole case was that Sam sent 10 text messages to the hairdresser - none of which were threatening, vulgar, mean or anything else."

He said Sam Lutfi was simply looking out for Spears' best interests and that he doubted the singer herself felt there was a need for the permanent order.

"Sam got her a lawyer, and facilitated his sister, and she requested getting her a cell phone," he said. "If Britney Spears wanted this restraining order herself, why didn't she testify, come to court, send a letter to the judge or do anything?"

A judge's ruling that Britney Spears, who is under a legal conservatorship headed by her father, Jamie Spears, and attorney Andrew Wallet, "lacks the capacity" to testify is apparently not a good enough excuse for Freedman.

Jon Eardley, the attorney who tried unsuccessfully to torpedo the conservatorship, was also named in the restraining order and told to keep away. Adnan Ghalib, Spears' ex-boyfriend, is similarly barred from contact until 2012.

Actress Kelly McGillis, who is best known as Tom Cruise's hot girlfriend in the 1986 hit movie Top Gun and has not been seen that often since, has revealed that she is single - but no longer searching for male companionship.

Yes, you read that correctly. Asked in a recent interview if she's looking to date a man or woman, the 51-year-old replied, "Definitely a woman."

Carrie Prejean is not gonna like this one bit.

The twice-divorced mother of two daughters – her movies also include 1985's Witness, with Harrison Ford, and 1988's The Accused, with Jodie Foster – said she's "done with the whole man thing. I did that. I need to move on in life."

"It's a part of being true to yourself. That's been a challenge for me."

Coming out as a lesbian was a long process involving difficult internal conflict, says Kelly McGillis (left, with Tom Cruise in Top Gun, and right, earlier this year).

It was "an ongoing process since I was probably 12. I had a lot of things happen that convinced me God was punishing me because I was gay," said Kelly McGillis, who was assaulted by an escaped rapist who broke into her apartment in 1982.

Now gray-haired and in rehearsals for The Little Foxes on stage in Pasadena, Calif., McGillis said she'd like to jump back onto the big screen – on one condition.

"Whenever I get an offer, they ask me to dye my hair," she says.

"And I just won't."
