There once was a time Jordana Brewster was the next big thing, dating Derek Jeter, posing in magazines, starring in various productions (none are coming to mind this second) and generally being hot. But then she kind of disappeared.

Fortunately, Jordana's new movie, Fast and Furious, has pushed her back into the spotlight somewhat, as has her sexy recurring role as evil agent Jill on NBC's Chuck.

And she's still rather good-looking, as you can see:

LIFE IN THE FAST LANE: This describes Fast and Furious more than Jordanna's career, but hey, we're not complaining. Except about Derek Jeter. How does he do it?

Yup, you can see what made this girl and almost-star way back when. Click to enlarge some more photos of Jordana Brewster in Maxim magazine below ...

David Blaine has really pulled a rabbit out of his hat this time.

He's getting married to his girlfriend, French model Alizee Guinochet!

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

A source close to the couple confirms that the romantic engagement occurred on Blaine’s birthday, April 4: "Alizee's a great girl. She's really smart and talented,” the source said. “They are so in love."

David Blaine, 36, and Alizee Guinochet, 23, were spotted in Central Park over the weekend sporting matching “pre-engagement” rings. Awesome.

Renowned for his flashy brand of street magic and grueling death-defying tests of endurance, Blaine also had a bit of a reputation a ladies’ man.

During the '90s and '00s, Blaine was romantically linked with a number of stars, such as Fiona Apple, Bijou Phillips, Daryl Hannah and Madonna.

Congrats to the happy couple!

In case you didn't hate her enough, just be glad you don't live in La Habra, Calif. If you happen to, our sympathies! Police say the department has spent thousands in overtime pay to look after Octomom Nadya Suleman and her family.

Resources were spent checking on the Suleman family during regular patrol hours and responding to calls at the house, though the total cost is  not known.

Nadya Suleman, 33, gave birth to the longest-living set of octuplets in history - the last of whom went home last week - back on January 26.

She has six other children, all younger than 8.

Octomom has been widely criticized by some members of the media, as she is single, unemployed and supporting her family - before the octuplets were even - born with food stamps, disability payments and student loans. But who's counting?

La Habra Police spokeswoman Cindy Knapp said the city will not seek restitution from Nadya Suleman for police escorts that accompanied babies home from Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center, or for other costs.

"Virtually all police services are free to residents of the community," she said. "There are no legal provisions or paths for cost recovery under the specific circumstances or service provided to the Sulemans at this point."

The department began working closely with the Suleman family after the two strongest of the infants were brought home in mid-March. The black SUV carrying Suleman, the babies and nurses was swarmed by paparazzi at stoplights.

Knapp said when the second and third sets of two babies were discharged from the hospital, police units and a supervisor guarded the cul-de-sac for her.

Hey, at least the Octomom reality show is officially a go. That shouldn't cause any additional chaos on her street or anything. Click to enlarge more pics:

Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl is in baby nirvana right now as he and his wife Jordyn have welcomed their second baby, a girl. She was born April 17.

Harper Willow Grohl - named after Grohl's great-uncle Harper Bonebrake - is 7 pounds, 8 ounces, 20 inches and long and "loud as hell," Grohl says.

Kevin and Jayden James Federline

The couple, who wed in 2003, are also parents to Violet, 3. Dave and his wife, who goes by Jordyn Blum, announced the pregnancy in October.

Grohl, who was the drummer for Nirvana before forming the Foos later in his career, played tunes for his first daughter before she was born.

"She likes The Beatles. Doesn't really get down The Beach Boys. Digs Mozart," the Grammy-Award winning musician said of his then-unborn child.

This has been a heck of a busy week for celebrity baby news, with Julie Chen announcing she's pregnant and Kimberly Williams-Paisley giving birth.

Congrats to Harper's groovy parents!

Amy Winehouse suffered some freak nasty burns on her leg last night.

The struggling singer, who is currently on St. Lucia vacation #2 this year, is said to have "experienced an accident" while "rustling up a meal."

The Sun says Wino was "cooking pasta." Code for free-basing?

According to friends, a kitchen pot tipped over, dousing the train wreck's legs with scalding hot water. Amy Winehouse made no attempt to cover the scars, however, calmly wandering down a beach in a pair of denim shorts.

  • Burned Amy Winehouse
  • Amy Winehouse: Burn Victim

OUCH! Wino's wounds - which were covered in sand - look like they need a good cleaning. Then again, so does the rest of her, as do her internal organs.

One visitor at the resort where she's saying said, "Amy’s wounds looked so painfully sore - she really should cover them up or get herself under an umbrella. They were covered in sand. We couldn’t believe she wasn’t keeling over in pain."

Kirk Sommer, a spokesperson for Wino, replied: "She’s not in a lot of pain, she’s just letting it breathe." Not sure if that idea works with third-degree burns.

Meanwhile, Amy’s estranged husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is demanding a paternity test from the unemployed heroin addict claiming he knocked her ass up.

Blake is now saying that Gilleen Morris, 31, is not having his child and accusing her of inventing the story. It was a brief, but storybook romance for Gilleen and Blake, who boinked last month while patients at the same rehab clinic.

You can imagine Amy's reaction to this news.

As embattled Miss California Carrie Prejean can attest, there is controversy being caused by advocates of gay marriage and it is sweeping this nation.

Perhaps she's even seen the new "Gathering Storm" video from The National Organization for Marriage, which has been viewed 500,000+ times online.

The nonprofit organization's mission is "to protect marriage and the faith communities that sustain it." The video, posted April 7, warns of a rapidly developing deluge of same sex unions that real Americans must band together and withstand!

In response, One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush, Scrubs and How I Met Your Mother star Sarah Chalke, Alicia Silverstone, Lance Bass and other celebs got together to shoot "The Gaythering Storm," a Funny or Die parody of the NOM video.

Follow the jump for the original video and the parody - these are two eye-openers for people on either side of the gay marriage debate:

It was out with the old, in with the new (and insane) on The Hills as Speidi started couples’ counseling, Stephanie Pratt started her new job with Lauren Conrad, and Audrina Patridge started looking for a new man - with unexpected results.

We begin at the workplace ...

Stephanie started at People’s Revolution and in no time, head honcho Kelly Cutrone berated her for leaving a drink on a desk and eating crackers over clothes.

The next day, she ignored a ringing phone, hung up on someone, put off some key tasks, didn’t check in the right clothes and doodled on a sheet of paper.

A clearly-pissed Lauren Conrad warned her friend, who she helped land the posh fashion-house gig with no experience whatsoever, to focus or she’d be fired.

Then, on the romance front ...

On “boy lookout” since breaking it off with that loser Justin-Bobby, Audrina Patridge pondered her next move. LC suggested that there was no time like the present.

With multiple dudes, if that's what it takes to move on.

Everyone got in on the action on last night's The Hills.

The girl posse, including Lo and Stephanie, met up for a night out with Frankie Delgado and Brody Jenner, who partook in crazy PDA with girlfriend Jayde Nicole.

Certainly nothing new for those two.

Justin-Bobby happened to be there too, natch, but ignored Audrina’s attempts to get his attention, then snapped at her a bit later on. What an absolute tool.

Comforting her, Brody told Audzo she needs to have more fun and called her a beautiful girl. Jealous, Jayde Nicole responded by trying to inhale Brody's face.

Brad Paisley and wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley welcomed their second child last week - and the country singer and his beautiful spouse decided to pay tribute to a special man while selecting the name for their newborn son.

Jasper Warren Paisley was born in Nashville on April 17, taking his middle name from the country star's grandfather, who gave Paisley his first guitar and encouraged him to pursue a music career, the actress' rep tells People.

Brad Paisley, 36, and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, 37, are also parents to 2-year-old William Huckleberry Paisley, named for Mark Twain's character Huck Finn.

That's better than Bronx Mowgli.

Sunday night, Miss North Carolina Kristen Dalton was crowned 2009's Miss USA at the famed Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Yet it's runner-up Carrie Prejean who's getting all the headlines after her answer to a question by Perez Hilton about her gay marriage stance, which resulted in massive controversy and (she believes) may have cost her the crown.

She passed God's test, though. At least in her mind.

Anyway, go ahead and skewer or defend Carrie Prejean all you want, but don't take anything away from Kristen Dalton. She won it fair and square. Don't overlook the national treasure who actually is Miss USA! Here's a little bit about her ...

The state's second winner of the coveted beauty queen crown after 2005 champ Chelsea Cooley, Dalton won both the swimsuit and evening gown competitions during the finals on her way to being named Miss USA at the end of the night.

The oldest of four children, the 22-year-old Kristen Dalton is currently an Honors student majoring in Psychology and Spanish at East Carolina University. She is a financially independent student by choice, working numerous jobs while at ECU.

Her glamourous turn in Las Vegas will not change this hometown girl, who prefers to lounge around in jeans with a zippered jacket, and who stays active in her church.

She aspires to be a motivational speaker and run her own charity.

Take that, Carrie Prejean. Click to enlarge lots more Kristen Dalton photos below and it will be plain to see why Miss USA 2009 is the winner in our book:
