Whether it's pitching her own reality show, her house getting burglarized, starring in Sorority Row, or going down under with Pete Wentz, The Hills star Audrina Patridge is literally everywhere celebrity gossip websites look these days.

At least she often mixes it up in regard to her appearance!

Call Security

Audrina Patridge looked sexy in bold, smoked-out eye makeup at the MTV Australia Awards in Sydney. But the next night, she decided to tone down the Jenny Humphrey (Gossip Girl reference) with pared-down liner and pink lips.

Which look do you think was best?

Leave it to PETA to make naked, fur-free headlines.

Cloris Leachman, 82, is making friends with salad as PETA's newest nude spokeswoman. In her new ad, the former Dancing With the Stars contestant dons just lettuce and cabbage leaves for the campaign "Let Vegetarianism Grow on You."

Lettuce just say this: Ewww! Peep it below, if you dare ...

Cloris Leachman PETA Ad

A vegetarian, Cloris Leachman is donning her edible dress in New York City's Times Square today. Mmm. You know you want to head down there and eat that piece.

In the past, we've gotten Shanna Moakler, Jenna Jameson and Holly Madison nude for PETA. The animal rights group has totally jumped the shark.

"With that big study out last week showing how skipping meat allows you to live longer, it's perfect timing," a PETA rep said of the provocative ad.

By posing nude, Cloris Leachman, who has already given half of The Hollywood Gossip's writing staff nightmares by regaling us with stories about having sex with Gene Hackman, has officially outdone even herself. Thanks a lot, lady.

After 13 years together, Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel are expecting their first baby, their rep exclusively confirms. The baby is due later this year.

The Private Practice star, 38, and the Tony award-winning actress, 37, first met on the original 1996 Broadway production of Rent in N.Y. City.

Julie Bowen and Oliver

After seven years of dating, they got married in January 2003.

Idina Menzel hinted last January that once she finished promoting her third solo album, I Stand, she would consider starting a family with Diggs.

"It's definitely in the plans," she said at the time.

Diggs has been ready since "the day I met him. He's always wanted kids. He grew up with four younger brothers and sisters, he's very comfortable around children."

How do they keep their marriage together?

"We just really work hard to try to stay best friends," Menzel said. "I love him so much, and I feel like we both have each other's backs, and we have a great respect for each other. We're enjoying each new phase of our lives together."

Congratulations to the happy, expectant couple!

Preparing for her swan song, Lauren Conrad found herself in the hot seat at MTV Canada's The After Show on Monday to talk up the upcoming Season Five of The Hills, which will be the reality star's last, at Toronto's Masonic Temple.

Lauren Conrad smiles and takes questions from Hills fans.

L-to-the-C Pic

Reminiscing on the show, LC talked a little bit about the old days when she and Heidi Montag were best friends, teased the new season a bit, and laughed aloud during a video montage of some of Spencer Pratt's greatest moments.

The new season of the reality show premieres on April 6. We can't wait.

Celebs. They love their pouty, ridiculously fake and ugly lips.

Somewhere, sometime, someone told them this was the in thing. Then, like everything else, it gets overplayed and wildly out of hand in the blink of an eye.

Maybe everyone just wants to be Angelina Jolie (we know Octomom does). But perhaps they should consider adoption, not quadrupling the size of their lips.

Seriously, stars really need to cool it with the lip injections. Who thinks this looks hot? Below are some of the most glaring offenders - a number of whom you will surely recognize from our inaugural Plastic Surgery Hall of Fame class ...

Heidi Montag: 2006 vs. 2008. The Hills star's transformation from cute girl to silicone cyborg in just two years included serious lip work. It's just too bad she had her 35 procedures before she could thank Jesus on Twitter for the opportunity.

Jessica Simpson Lip Injections

Jessica Simpson: 2004 vs. 2007. Holy crap. Ummm, Jessica Simpson has looked better. That's as nicely as we can put it. This was before she got fat, too!

Anna Faris Plastic Surgery

Anna Faris: 2002 vs. 2008. She's all the rage these days for some reason. Is it because she had her lips plumped? Or starred in a film about Playboy?

We're just getting started, and you ain't seen nothin' yet. The stars featured after the jump make these examples look tame. Continue reading below ...

The goddess that is Britney Spears has risen from the ashes and is taking the world by storm once again. But during the day, even the Circus tour must rest.

A day after she was allegedly heard crying out for help on a leaked voicemail left for an attorney, a mellow Britney was showing no apparent signs of discontent.

Britney Spears and ...

Spears, who was also the subject of controversy this weekend as her father sought to shut down a fan site that has supported her for five years, made a Starbucks run on Monday in Woodland Hills, Calif., looking as beautiful as ever ...

DOUBLE FISTING: Looks like a frapp and a water for Queen Britney.

Other Britney Spears news in the past two weeks has included death threats, a document showing that she paid $2.7 million in legal bills in 11 months, a video of her screaming "Merry Christmas" during a show, a claim that she banged some guy in a bathroom on tour, a report of two of her roadies being arrested and other good stuff.

Just another day in the Circus!

Octomom made headlines for firing free nurses last week. Looks like it wasn't the only case of people connected with the nutjob's life being fired.

A hospital canned 15 morons for looking illicitly at medical records of the infamous Nadya Suleman, a Kaiser Permanente spokesman said Monday.

The Awful Octo Mom

"We always provide training on the importance of patient privacy and confidentiality," said hospital rep Jim Anderson, addressing the situation.

"We knew from the time [Nadya Suleman] was admitted to the hospital in December, this case would attract attention. Numerous training sessions were held to remind people of the need to keep the information confidential."

Eight other employees at the hospital in Bellflower, Calif., also were disciplined.

Anderson said there's no indication any of Octomom's info was leaked to the media, but that "this was human nature and curiosity that got the best of people."

The 33-year-old drain on society has six of her eight octuplets at home in La Habra, Calif. Baby number seven is due home soon, but the eighth may have to stay in the hospital for another month before he's healthy enough to leave.

The six kids she already had before getting artificially inseminated with eight more? They're fine, eating and living well thanks to gobs of taxpayer money.

Michelle Obama pictures don't seem to indicate anything out of the ordinary, but for whatever reason, rumors have been spreading that the 45-year-old First Lady of the United States is pregnant - and she is just baffled as a result

"I was like, 'Baby bump'? As hard as I work on my abs?" she tells Oprah Winfrey in O. "Here's the scoop: Not pregnant. And not planning on it."

While campaigning for her husband throughout 2008, the self-proclaimed French fry addict said she started to change the way they both eat.

"We started looking at our diet, trying to eliminate junk, getting seasonal fruits and vegetables that were grown locally," she said."We walked the kids through reading labels. We talked about why one juice might be better than another."

They've carried their healthy lifestyle to the White House.

"There's a small gym here that has everything we need," the fashion icon says. "I work out 4-5 days a week - and Barack does six. He's a workout zealot."

Besides treadmill and weights, Michelle Obama says, "I also do some jump rope, some kickboxing - and I'd like to take up Pilates, if I could figure out whether there's time. After I had [daughter] Malia, I began to prioritize exercise because I realized that my happiness is tied to how I feel about myself. I want my girls to see a mother who takes care of herself, even if that means I have to get up at 4:30 so I can do a workout."

She says she has her hands full with her two girls Malia and Sasha, 10 and 7, who just picked up an interest in basketball.

"Barack's losing his mind," she said of her husband, an avid basketball fan. "I was like, 'Settle down - don't act too excited, or she will not want to do it.'"

Two weeks ago, after events played out on an emotional season finale of The City on MTV, we reported that Whitney Port and Jay Lyon were broken up.

Just a few days after that, we reported that Whitney was spotted making out with Lipstick Jungle star Robert Buckley. Mmm! Talk about a hot couple!

Well, it looks like her fling with Buckley is as dead as Lipstick Jungle itself. Whit was seen in the West Village with none other than Lyon yesterday:

Whitney Port and Jay Lyon are back together in The City!

How do you feel about Whitney Port taking her Aussie beau back after all his antics on the show, City fans? Or were those antics all staged for ratings?

Either way, they sure seem happy together in the pictures below. Click to enlarge more photos of Whitney and Jay Lyon strolling through New York ...

She and Chris Brown may be on a break (whatever that means), but Rihanna is fully cooperating with the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office, her lawyer says.

Attorney Donald Etra tells E! Online that a report that Rihanna is no longer cooperating with prosecutors in their assault and criminal threats case against her longtime beau - whom she's currently taking a break from - is "totally incorrect."

A rep for the D.A. concurs. "We have been in contact with her attorney, and he has always said she is a cooperating victim," says spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons.

Rihanna, who lately has been doing enough partying and clubbing to make up for a month spent out of the limelight, will not be in court on April 6 for Chris Brown's rescheduled arraignment on felony assault and threat charges.

"There is no need for her to [to appear next Monday]," Gibbons told E! Online yesterday. "She is not the defendant in this case, Chris Brown is."

The lawyer appeared on her behalf March 5, telling the court that his client was not requesting an order of protection against her alleged attacker.
