Guess his breakup with Bar Refaeli was legit.

At the very least, they're taking time off and both are cavorting with others. The hot Israeli model was recently seen with Ricardo Mansur. Now it's Leo's turn.

Leonardo DiCaprio has been busy on the London party scene and has now apparently hooked up with Ashley Roberts of the Pussycat Dolls, reports The Sun.

A star who does not exactly gravitate to the cameras (novel concept), Leo attended a celebrity-packed Cartier International Polo event over the weekend.

That's where he got cozy with Ashley.

Ashley Roberts cozies up to Leonardo DiCaprio in the UK.

“They were getting on like a house on fire, drinking bottles of champagne and tequila. They were so close at one point she was almost on his knee,” says The Sun.

Whatever comes of this hookup, don't expect to see The Departed star strolling down Sunset Boulevard with the Pussycat on his arm. No, he will keep us guessing.

This is surely not going to go over well with Kimberly Wyatt and the rest of her band mates. You know how jealous they can get about ... anything. Those Dolls.

Police have long believed Dr. Conrad Murray administered Propofol, a potent anesthesia that should never be found outside a hospital, to Michael Jackson.

They have also been operating under the assumption that this killed him.

Well, there's a good reason police believe Murray gave the star the drug. It turns out he admitted doing so two days after Jackson's death back on June 25.

Dr. Conrad Murray told the LAPD he administered Propofol to the music icon hours before he died. This is according to multiple law enforcement sources.

Murray gave Jackson an IV drip of the powerful anesthesia.

Police believe Murray simply wasn't paying attention when the star's heart stopped beating, thus accounting for the timeline gap in between when the coroner's office believes Jackson flatlined and when the 911 call was placed.

One theory? Dr. Conrad Murray fell asleep while the drug was being administered and awakened to find Michael Jackson dead of cardiac arrest. The singer died by the time paramedics arrived, though Murray did not let them call it there.

An IV drip of Propofol allows for a constant, steady infusion of the drug during a period of time determined by the trained professional administering it.

Again, this is supposed to take place in a hospital.

Moreover, it is considered reckless in the medical community for a doctor to administer an IV drip of Propofol without the patient being monitored by an EKG, which monitors the patient's pulse. No EKG was found in Michael's house.

Another device called a pulse oximeter is used to determine the oxygen saturation in the patient's blood. If the patient's breathing slows to dangerous levels, an alarm will alert the treating physician. No oximeter was found in the house.

No one knows precisely why the drug was administered.

If the above is all true, however, we suspect it is only a matter of time before Dr. Conrad Murray faces the music, possibly even manslaughter charges.

Jordan (a.k.a. Katie Price) took cage fighter Alex Reid back to her hotel suite for a night of wild sex, the UK's News of the World is revealing this morning.

Hours earlier, she denied they were together. But reports say the busty model enjoyed a night of passion in a posh hotel with the hunk over the weekend.

Katie, who may be getting sued by Peter Andre for accusing her ex of infidelity, emerged around lunchtime the following day grinning from ear to ear.

One of the guests said:

"They were all over each other earlier. It was clear that they needed to get a room. And when they got inside there was a lot of noise, a constant banging."

The night of lust - which could be heard by fellow hotel guests - came days after Jordan and Reid were spotted openly groping each other in a nightclub.

Katie Price, 31, denied on TV that she was in a relationship - despite giving the former Hollyoaks star a £4,000 Chanel watch for his 34th birthday.

Other sources say they have been dating for two weeks.

One almost has to be a cage fighter to handle Katie Price.

The noisy boning session happened at Liverpool's posh Malmaison hotel ahead of a book-signing session for Jordan's new novel, Sapphire. Yes, she has a new novel.

Katie Price, who most recently was linked to model Anthony Lowther, walked into the boutique waterfront hotel at 8:30 p.m. with Reid following close behind.

Wearing a light brown playsuit, she posed for the MTV cameras which are following her every move for a new fly-on-the-wall series (premiere date unknown).

Alex Reid stayed away from the lenses, chatting on his phone. Once the cameras stopped running she and Reid went up to her luxury £405-per-night suite.

That's when the "constant banging" began in earnest.

Daniel Bark, the man arrested for the hit-and-run death of American Idol contestant Alexis Cohen, has been charged with death by vehicular homicide.

The 23-year-old, who was booked yesterday for reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident, was also charged with aggravated manslaughter.

And eluding a law enforcement officer for good measure.

Alexis Cohen was killed on the road in Seaside Heights, N.J., on the state's famed shore, over the weekend. Her body was found by two pedestrians.

Bail for Daniel Bark has been set at $150,000.

Police say Alexis Cohen was run over by Daniel Bark.

Speaking outside the courthouse afterwards, the suspect's attorney, David Glassman, said Bark is "having an extremely difficult time mentally coming to terms with the fact that there's an allegation that he caused a death."

American Idol might remember Alexis Cohen's angry yet empowered, partially censored, post-rejection rant aired during the show's seventh season.

Last year, she unsuccessfully auditioned for season eight.

Kristin Davis and her Sex and the City character, Charlotte York, may have both been unlucky in love at one time or another, what with divorces and her tawdry photos getting leaked and all. But Davis has found a match in Russell James.

"It's been going on for a bit now," says a source close to the actress and the celebrity photographer. "She's very supportive of him – she seems very happy."

On July 20, the pair joined another pal at Katsuya Brentwood for dinner in Los Angeles. Russell James and Kristin Davis, 44, sat in an intimate booth.

Davis rested her head against his shoulder.

"She was all smiles," says the onlooker. "A little giddy."

The duo walked out quietly, trying to keep a low profile, with Kristin Davis grabbing Russell James' hand for a second as they headed up the steps.

In June, Davis joined James at a party to celebrate his new photography book at the grand reopening of Santa Monica's Shangri-La hotel.

"They hung out at the party and were definitely a little flirty in public."

"They seemed like an item," said an observer at the time.

In an emotional season finale, The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris ended up with Ed Swiderski, ousting Kiptyn Locke and leaving Reid Rosenthal devastated.

After Kiptyn was rejected, it appeared as if Reid might sweep Jillian off her feet with his dramatic return to the show. But ultimately, Jillian's feelings for Ed, the Chicago native who left and returned himself this season, were just too strong.

The episode began on the big island of Hawaii and a date with her parents, Ed Swiderski and his chest hair. He admits to her folks that he used to be married to his girlfriend in Chicago job, but now is here because he loves Jillian.

Glenn Harris gave Ed Swiderski his blessing to propose to Jillian.

Then it is time for Jillian's date with Kiptyn Locke. They are reunited at last. They kiss. A lot. They kiss again. They say a few words. And so on, et cetera.

Asked if he's in love with Jillian Harris, Kiptyn says he's "getting there." Moments later, he admits (to the camera) that he is in love with her. More kissing.

After meeting both guys, her parents and hot cousin praise ... both. Jill is still torn. Fortunately, she goes on second dates with both of the perfect fellas.

  • Jillian Waits
  • The Limo Ride

Jillian Harris' decision on love did not come easy. Wes would understand.

Ed's goes really well, with no sign of performance anxiety. He confesses that he wants to be with Jillian ... forever. Hard to top that, although Kiptyn Locke tries, saying he's ready to commit and wants Jillian to - OMG - move to San Diego.

In a shameless plug for Neil Lane, the guys both pick out rings. The dudes are hella nervous. Jillian has made her decision and decides she is going to let go of ...

... Kiptyn. Even after he was gonna propose and stuff. Heartbreaking.

Sad as she is, Jillian can now focus all her attention on ... wait, is that a mysterious taxi pulling up! Yes! With Reid Rosenthal, who arrives, shirt untucked!

In tears, Reid says he had to pull "a million" strings to get back on the show (yeah, right), admits his mistakes, and professes his undying love to Jillian. Swoon.

He drops to one knee and pops the question! It's the most romantic thing ever. But ... crickets. Jillian: "I need to think aboot this." She leaves. Reid waits.

Fortunately, Chris Harrison is there to coach her. He tells her to follow her heart. Jillian: "How do I make a decision like this?" Chris: "Because you know." Pimp.

Jillian cuts Reid loose for the second time. That's gotta be rough.

Even a valiant effort by Reid Rosenthal couldn't stave off Ed Swiderski.

Finally, it's Ed's turn to walk across the pool and into Jillian's arms. He professes his love to Jillian once again, gets down to one knee and asks her to marry him.

She accepts! They embrace! Tears flow. He gives her a piggyback ride. Cue obligatory cheesy montage of Ed-Jillian highlights from weeks past as the credits roll!

Will Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski last?

Two weeks after being placed under a Britney Spears 5150 psychiatric hold, Mischa Barton has left the hospital and is ready to resume working.

"I can confirm that she's left the hospital with the intention to resume production" of her new CW show, The Beautiful Life, her rep said today.

Mischa Barton was placed under involuntary psychiatric hold at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center July 15 after calling police for "personal issues."

But fortunately, Barton appears to be making progress since the meltdown.

Ashton Kutcher, co-creator and producer of The Beautiful Life, said as much.

"I can tell you right now Mischa Barton is doing great," Kutcher said.

Mischa Barton is back on the outside ... for now.

Production on The Beautiful Life, which stars Barton as a pill-popping supermodel (somehow it seems like an appropriate casting) is set to begin Friday.

The CW had been making contingency plans in case Mischa didn't show up for filming, casting a character with similarities to Barton's Sonja Stone.

Amy Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, is apparently still around.

He is also apparently doing what he can to cash in on his final moments of fame by describing how he feared his wife was dying in his arms during a bender.

Fielder-Civil, who was granted a divorce from her on grounds of her adultery on July 16, told The Sun how Amy went into a seizure and stopped breathing.

He recalled: "She started having a fit on the bed. She slid down on to the floor before I could stop her. She started quivering and it suddenly grew into like a full-blown epileptic fit. I was panicking. I didn't know know how to help her."

He later notes, "I was out of it on drugs as well."

The heroic Blake Fielder-Civil described how he put the songstress into the recovery position, pulling her tongue out of her mouth to stop her biting it.

He added: "I knelt over her as she kept on fitting. But then suddenly she just passed out and stopped breathing. It was the most frightening thing I had ever seen. I felt sure I was watching her die right in front of me."

"I didn't know how to save her. I held her to me. I thought she was dying in my arms. But I managed to open her mouth and breathe air down her throat."

"At first nothing happened. So I did it again. I was feeling for a pulse because I thought her heart might have stopped. Then she spluttered - and I saw her chest rise. I was sobbing and panicking but I just felt this huge relief that she was alive."

Blake Fielder-Civil continued describing how Amy Winehouse, slipping in and out of consciousness, was unable to recognize him and called out for more drugs, before a friend called a taxi to take her to hospital, where she was placed on IVs.

Reflecting on Winehouse's troubled life, her ex-husband said:

"It's just a shame because she's very funny, very clever and she's very loving. I can think of all these good points about her. But she just put everything going for her - all that talent and personality - and hid them behind drink and drugs."

After Tony Romo broke up with her the night before her 29th birthday, he took extra precautions in shielding himself from Jessica Simpson in Dallas.

Specifically, he made sure she wouldn't be able to get near his home.

A sign at the entrance of his gated community reads: "RED ALERT!!! TONY ROMO HAS MADE SOME CHANGES TO HIS LIST OF PEOPLE ALLOWED IN... JESSICA SIMPSON IS NO LONGER ON THE LIST AND NOT APPROVED FOR ACCESS."

Red alert?

Seems a bit extreme. Maybe the John Mayer text messages set him off.

Not that Jessica wanted to stick around: The singer paid $19,000.00 on July 15 to ship 37 boxes worth of her belongings from Dallas to L.A. overnight.

After the the couple - who began dating in November 2007 - called it quits earlier this month, a pal of Romo said that "It's been a long time coming."

Not everyone expected the news, however.

"I thought they would... tie the knot," said Romo's insane former teammate Terrell Owens, who famously slammed Jess for being a "jinx" on America's Team.

For her part, Simpson has been working out again with a personal trainer in L.A., going on movie dates with her mom and girlfriends, and trying to move on.

"Everyone needs to know hope floats... grab the strings and pull it back to you... Falling asleep with my mom and the dogs. Please, Lord, give all of my beautiful fans, friends, enemies, and family rest. Bring all of us peace," she Tweeted.

That is pretty pathetic. No wonder her family feels bad for Jessica.

Making the media rounds to promote her new book, Getting it Through My Thick Skull, Mary Jo Buttafuoco calls her ex-husband, Joey Buttafuoco, a sociopath.

Speaking on Good Morning America today, Mary Jo discussed her relationship with Joey, and answered the question: “Why did you stay with Joey for so long?”

"Because I believed him when he said he had nothing to do with her," she stated, referencing Joey's lover Amy Fisher, who shot Mary Jo in the face in 1992.

"He was a very good sociopath and liar. When I looked it up on the Internet, and looked at sociopathic tendencies, I said 'Oh My God.' Joey fit all the criteria."

Mary Jo Buttafuoco's new book has drawn attention to the term sociopath, the definition of which is a person with antisocial personality disorder, who is unable to confirm to societal norms and exhibits disregard for the rights of others.

Mary Jo Buttafuoco is really, really trying to drive her point home, though. It's like she's trying to make it so Joey Buttafuoco comes up when you Google "sociopath."

Joey Buttafuoco released a statement in defense of being called a sociopath, stating that he would prefer to be diagnosed as a sociopath by a doctor, rather than simply termed it by ex-wife, and feels "victimized" by the accusation.

Aww, poor Joey. One could argue that Mary Jo was victimized by being shot in the face by Amy Fisher, but that's neither here nor there at this point.

Mary Jo Buttafuoco said that her son stated to her, “Dad is a sociopath, and he’s never going to change.” She calls this realization a "revelation."

Asked why she stayed with Joey 11 years after the incident until divorcing him in 2003, she said "It's never one easy thing. Life is not like that."

True. Why let a single bullet lodged in your thick skull dictate things.
