Jessica Seinfeld’s recipes are all hers, a federal judge has ruled.

The wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld did not copy from another author in her cookbook about sneaking vegetables into children’s food, as alleged in a copyright infringement case brought by a competing author, Missy Chase Lapine.

Jerry Seinfeld and Wife

Lapine said she had twice submitted a book proposal about sneaking healthy foods into children’s meals to HarperCollins, and was twice rejected.

An imprint of Perseus Books finally published The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals in April 2007.

Five months later, HarperCollins published Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook, Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food.

A judge says Jessica Seinfeld did not bogart any recipes.

Missy Chase Lapine then brought a case against Jessica Seinfeld, accusing her of copyright infringement, trademark violations and unfair competition.

Although the judge found some similarities, she said that “no reasonable fact finder could conclude” that the books “have the same aesthetic appeal.”

“Lapine’s cookbook is a dry, rather text-heavy work,” Judge Laura Taylor Swain of Federal District Court wrote in her review, while Mrs. Seinfeld’s “cookbook has a completely different feel and appears to be directed to a different audience.”

In other Seinfeld news, Jerry and his former co-stars will soon be reuniting - and producing great Curb Your Enthusiasm quotes - on Larry David's HBO hit.

Lady Gaga seems to really hate pants. Or at least have no use for those pesky things. It's a bold position we certainly can appreciate, and commend.

She takes it to a new level, though.

It's one thing for our interns to write celebrity gossip news in their underwear, quite another for an international pop icon to parade around like this:

Lady Gaga: No Pants Picture

Toting a beautiful bouquet, and sans pants, Lady Gaga leaves a Paris hotel.

Could this be her way of proving to the world that she is not a hermaphrodite? If so, it appears effective. Nope, doesn't look like any penis up in there.

Her vagina, which was apparently offended by the rumor, has decided to strike back by making sure it is on display, or darn close, at every opportunity.

The star's next stop is N.Y. City, where she'll perform on the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday. Hopefully that results in a watershed fashion moment.

Or at least Lady Gaga naked on stage.

For now, click to enlarge pictures of the pantsless Gaga tossing a bouquet of flowers to her adoring fans as she leaves hotel La Tremoille in Paris ...

Paris Hilton wore a cute t-shirt proclaiming her feelings for her one and only true love - Paris Hilton - as she walked through LAX airport yesterday.

Also there was Doug Reinhardt, who she recently got back together with. Hopefully Doug realizes who the true object of her affection is, though ...

I Heart Paris Hilton

We're not sure who's slumming it more here.

After a temporary break, Doug Reinhardt is said to have stopped at nothing to win back his girl. He's a true romantic, renting private islands for their vacations and Twittering non-stop about how in love he is. It's adorable nauseating.

In any case, they appeared to be going strong and madly in love, or at least faking it well, when they arrived at LAX airport, full of PDA yesterday afternoon.

Former actor and current sex tape sellout Dustin Diamond is being sued for more than $21,000 in unpaid property taxes and had his car repossessed.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

The 32-year-old loser, who found fame playing dorky Samuel “Screech” Powers on the TV hit Saved By The Bell, seems to have hit financial hard times.

He was sued by Ford Motor Credit Company in November 2008 for $544, which ultimately resulted in the repossession of his 2005 Ford Expedition.

Way to buy a car you can't afford, Screech. Did Mr. Belding teach you nothing? Moreover, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue is suing him for $21,015.62.

That's the amount of unpaid taxes he owes on his house in Port Washington, Wisc. He was also hit with a small claim by Wisconsin Electric Power Company.

Oh, and there's that issue with the IRS.

After Saved By The Bell ended in 2000, Dustin Diamond appeared in a few reality shows, including The Weakest Link, Celebrity Boxing 2 and Celebrity Fit Club.

Lame, but innocent enough. Things too a really dirty turn in 2006.

That's when he infamously starred in the revolving sex tape tape Screeched, a.k.a. Saved By The Smell, which showed him defiling a pair of local women.

Diamond - who has also done stints as a stand-up comic – claimed the tape was leaked as a mistake but his manager conceded he hoped it'd his profile.

He's also coming out with Behind the Bell, a behind-the-scenes tell-all about the Saved By the Bell cast. Apparently it's not being pre-ordered too much.

Worst of all, Behind the Bell got him uninvited from the Saved By the Bell reunion. That's a bigger insult than anything the IRS could possibly to do him.

Kendra Wilkinson enjoyed a special baby shower for her son, Hank Baskett IV, who is tentatively listed as probable to be born on Christmas Day.

Who better to throw her a perfect shower than BFFs and former Girls Next Door co-stars Bridget Marquard and Holly Madison? No one, that's who.

The festivities took place at longtime Playboy secretary Mary O’Connor’s house just outside L.A., and the theme was pickles and Candyland.

Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt arrived early to decorate the house with tons of blue balloons and streamers in honor of their friend's baby.

Here's K-Dubs getting ready to devour some serious pickle ...

Pickles

THAT THING IS HUGE: Seriously, check out Kendra's bump!

Also in attendance were Kendra's "ex," Hugh Hefner, and the array of Hef's whores, a.k.a. Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

Hef, who even put on clothes for the occasion, wouldn't miss it for anything. Well, unless Kimberley Conrad were there, then he would've sat it out.

“The girls are going to Kendra's baby shower today,” he Twittered. “Crystal, the Twins, Holly, Bridget & Kendra will all be there. How can I stay away?”

The house was also filled with multicolored lollipops, taffy candy, and cupcakes. Marquardt herself baked hundreds of miniature cupcakes for the event.

“Just got done baking, frosting and decorating a ton of mini cupcakes for Kendra's baby shower. It's been a busy day. I'm exhausted,” she Twittered.

It is only fitting that Nicole Richie, who just became a mom for the second time, took to Twitter to tweet for joy about her new baby bird ... er, boy, Sparrow.

After the birth of their son yesterday Nicole and fiance Joel Madden each went online to express their love for themselves publicity Twitter itself their child.

"What a great day to come back on Twitter," Nicole wrote, somehow without sarcasm. "Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I love my family!!"

That's good. We wouldn't have believed it, and it probably wouldn't even be true if she hadn't written about it online for 639,351 of her closest friends.

Joel also lamely Twittered props to his son: "1st day of his life & my son is already a trending topic on twitter. That's right son, ur just like your old man."

We're happy the baby is healthy and all, guys, but get a life. Go hang out with Sparrow. Occasional updates are great, but so is the idea of moderation.

Is the nanny busy caring for the baby while you Twitter about it?

Harlow has yet to welcome Sparrow to the world on Twitter. Get on it, girl!

For those of you who may be devastated and on the verge of plunging into deep existential crises after your faith in love was irreparably shaken, good news:

Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman are still together. Exhale with us now.

Jon took the time to make it known that despite reports to the contrary, he and new girlfriend Hailey Glassman - a.k.a. Jon's soul mate - are going strong.

"We're together and happy as ever," the player revealed today.

"In fact, [Hailey] is with me in Pennsylvania for the first time!"

Gotta introduce the kids to their new mom at some point, right?

Jon Gosselin spoke to E! News today, Hailey Glassman by his side.

Both were in good spirits and laughing about a new celeb gossip story claiming that Hailey put the kibosh on the romance because of Jon's alleged cheating.

Not the case. Despite rumors of Jon hooking up with a bevy of mediocre girls, he's a one-woman man. And he loves her more than he ever did his ex-wife.

So he said this week in a bitter, no-holds-barred interview this week with ABC's Good Morning America and Primetime in which he did not mince words.

Among other choice sound bites, Jon said, in no uncertain terms: "I despise Kate." The kids will love that in a few years when they discover the Google.

Jessica Simpson is desperately trying to get back in John Mayer's pants, if you believe the new cover of In Touch. Which you shouldn't, but hey, they printed it.

According to the poor man's OK! Magazine, Jessica wants to reunite with the douchebag after Tony Romo shattered her life by dumping her a few months ago.

Jess Simps

She had "her whole future planned out" with Tony and wanted him to marry her. But then on the night before her birthday in July, everything fell apart. Sniff.

Now he's with Candice Crawford, sister of Gossip Girl star Chace, and even brings her to some of the same restaurants in Dallas he and Jessica used to hit.

“She can’t believe it,” an insider tells the mag. “Even if she doesn’t want Tony back, no one wants to see their ex moving on with a hotter, younger girl.”

DESPERATE HOOKUP: John Mayer definitely qualifies as such.

The fact that Nick Lachey got back together with Vanessa Minnillo hasn't helped Jessica's mindset either. She's becoming Jennifer Aniston-style pathetic.

While Jessica’s "career is going great" - apparently In Touch is stuck in 2003 here - her personal life "is kind of a disaster." At least they got that right.

“This couldn’t have come at a worse time for Jessica,” the friend of hers adds. “It’s opened up a lot of old wounds. She’s pretty insecure about herself."

That insecurity that has led Jessica "down a dangerous path of desperation and loneliness," as she's been secretly hooking up with her ex John Mayer.

Supposedly.

We'll set the over-under on how long it takes the douchebag to deny this on Twitter at two hours, since he Googles himself so often. This morning, he denied a similar rumor about himself - that Kristin Cavallari was playing his meat bugle.

Jennifer Aniston just cannot catch a break with all the bogus celeb gossip stories about her being pathetic and miserable that are printed these days.

Not can she catch a break in love. Girl is just so lonely!

In a a revealing new interview, Aniston professes to E! News that all stories about her are lies. Seriously, they're all untrue, every last word of them.

Even her most recent Elle interview, which her own best friend and producing partner conducted. The entire gist of the thing was off base dammit!

"It's just their headline of 'Lonely Girl' that's sort of bull$h!t," Aniston says. "I agreed to do it because how many times have I done an interview - every time - and you're misquoted and stupid sound bites get taken out of context."

"All of that still happened with this. It's unavoidable."

Still, the unlucky-in-love star keeps an positive outlook.

"I'm not upset about it," she says. "I just find it funny."

What we find funny is that Jen volunteers relationship advice more than just about any other celebrity. That's like Mischa Barton teaching cooking!

Following his instant-classic "You Lie!" outburst last night, U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson has sparked widespread discussion and even inspired a website in his (dis)honor.

The South Carolina Republican is the subject of a new site called Joe Wilson is Your Pre-Existing Condition, a reference to the controversial health care issue.

It was President Barack Obama's health care speech that caused Wilson to heckle him last night, shouting at him and earning headlines and criticism.

With the tagline "You dissed America; we'll dis you right the f**k back," the new site takes funny shots at the Congressman with each click of the mouse.

Some of them are just amusing, sort of like reverse "Chuck Norris facts." Joe Wilson is totally "that guy" we all hate. For example, the site claims that:

  • Joe Wilson hit on your mom
  • Joe Wilson stole your newspaper
  • Joe Wilson yells 'Free Bird' at concerts
  • Joe Wilson didn't refill your Brita pitcher
  • Joe Wilson farted during your wedding vows
  • Joe Wilson talks on his Blackberry during your favorite movie
  • Joe Wilson swapped the dead batteries in his Walkman for the fresh ones in your TV remote

Yep. Joe Wilson is totally that guy.

Some of the Joe Wilson "facts" directly address the health care crisis and his rude outburst, however. A few examples of more serious criticism ...

  • Joe Wilson yells while adults are talking
  • Joe Wilson claims your sick child is faking
  • Joe Wilson thinks you are too stupid to actually read the bill
  • Joe Wilson canceled your insurance for buying off-brand insoles
  • Joe Wilson doesn't respect the constitution of the United States
  • Joe Wilson distracted you from one of the most important speeches by an American President in the last 20 years

What do you think? Was Joe Wilson right to speak his mind or out of line to heckle the Prez during his speech? Whose side are you on?
