Watch out, Brangelina.

TomKat (or at least the first half of the strange celebrity couple) is out to surpass you – and not at the box office, but with celebrity babies.

The Brangelina brood of six will be tough to beat. But Tom Cruise recently revealed to the UK's The Sun that he would like to have 10. Yes, 10.

The Hollywood star talked about how he loves being a father and why the 16-year age gap with his third wife Katie Holmes is not a problem.

“I want 10 children," the actor said. "I love kids. I feel really fortunate to have the teenagers and a two and a half-year-old. It’s a great dynamic.”

Takin' a Pounding

The star adopted twice with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, Isabella, 16, and 13-year-old Connor Cruise, who just made his movie debut in Seven Pounds.

Katie Holmes - shown here earlier this month after taking a beating from a hectic Broadway schedule - became a parent when Suri was born in 2006.

Suri has since become one of the world's most recognizable celebrity babies, and for all his craziness, there's no denying Tom's love for his little girl.

Of Suri Cruise, Tom says: “She’s so charming, she’s so beautiful, she’s great.” We'll see if he assesses the situation similarly after giving her 6-7 more siblings.

The City premieres tonight on MTV. So does Bromance.

Brody Jenner's new search for man-love (platonic, of course) on reality TV hasn't gotten as much press as Whitney Port's new spinoff of The Hills, and with good reason.

But fans of the reality TV mainstay should very much enjoy his quest for a new member of his entourage. In the clip below, Brody Jenner speaks on:

  • Rumors that he is gay (he's not, see Nicole, Jayde)
  • How he loves awkward guy moments (see Superbad)
  • How the openly gay contestant on Bromance had a crush not on Brody, but on his ex, Lauren Conrad, and the Hills universe in general

Looks like an entertaining show. Here's Brody previewing Bromance ...

The original director and lead choreographer of Britney Spears’ upcoming Circus tour have both quit before the tour even starts, according to Rolling Stone.

Wade Robson and Andre Fuentes have both left “The Circus Starring Britney Spears” event, which is expected to embark from New Orleans, La., on March 3.

The official reason for their departure hasn’t been revealed, but according to Britney Spears fan site Breathe Heavy, Robson simply said he had “had it.”

That always bodes well.

Replacing Robson will be Jamie King, who is responsible for Madonna’s huge Sticky & Sweet Tour and worked with Spears on her Oops... I Did It Again tour.

Simon Ellis will be the tour’s new musical director. He previously worked with the Spice Girls and was dubbed a “genius” by American Idol mastermind Simon Fuller.

How excited are you for this Circus coming to town?

Reports are also romantically linking Britney Spears and Sandip Soparrkar, an Indian choreographer who she's working with on her Womanizer music video, and who has previously taught moves to pop divas Madonna, Shakira and Beyonce.

We don't believe that rumor for a second, given how involved Jamie Spears is in her life these days, but just the same, we'll keep you posted on that.

If Lauren Conrad is known for anything ... it's getting caught up in hectic boyfriend (and female friend) drama, shedding tears, then hugging it out on The Hills.

But if the star is known for a second thing, it's fabulous fashion sense - as evidenced by the fancy, fun and stylish dresses she wears to events all year long.

Whether she chooses something from her very own fashion line or one of the many designers she loves, Lauren Conrad always looks fantastic when she makes a public appearance, or even just steps out to talk on the phone. Girl dresses well!

If Katie Holmes had not yet cemented herself as the Worst Dressed Celebrity of 2008 (with no threat to her crown in sight), this ought to do the job.

The actress busted out her trademark winter shorts as she left her New York City apartment en route to the Gerald Shoenfeld Theater on Sunday.

It's as ridiculous as it sounds. If not more so. Peep it:

One Hot Mama

The 30-year-old had another matinee performance to do for Arthur Miller’s play All My Sons. Despite atrocious fashion sense and terrible hair, the mom of Suri Cruise kept warm in a gray Marc Jacobs scarf and seemed in good spirits.

Click to enlarge more pics of Katie Holmes below. Shield your eyes if you enjoy celebrity fashion. We'll post something good to balance her out soon:

  • Winter Shorts
  • It Hurts to Look
  • Long, Lean and Dressed Like an Idiot
  • Katie Holmes Fashion Sense
  • Back! Backkk!
  • Katie Struts Her Stuff
  • Autograph, Please?

The squalid, drug-ravaged life of Amy Winehouse is being exposed like never before by Alex Haines, a guitarist she worked with and lover she took up with over the past year or so while her junkie husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was rotting away in jail.

This is merely the short version, but it will give you some idea of what Alex Haines saw. He recently told the News of the World how the singer:

You Da Wino!

... was a secret bulimic, living on McDonalds and up to 10 Crunchie bars at a time. She even used his toothbrush to make herself boot afterwards.

... smoked crack for breakfast from pipes she made out of drinks bottles as she blew £3,500 a week on drugs in her darkest hours.

... had to have heroin and crack pipes near her or she freaked out.

... was so desperate for every last bit she even frantically scraped the crack residue out with a screwdriver so it wouldn’t be wasted.

... realizes her number is almost up. Amy Winehouse, 25, "reckoned she would join the 27 club of rock stars who died at that age,” reveals Alex Haines. “She told me, ‘I have a feeling I am gonna die young’.”

... used to boink him a lot. “It was like having my own little porn star. Amy was so dirty, she wanted sex all the time. We did it 4-5 times a day and she’d even wake me up for it. She was addicted to sex like she was to drugs.”

... talked about Blake after. Even after Alex Haines hit that, “She would go on about Blake and her being together forever straight after we made love. I sat there in disbelief. We had few bust-ups over it.”

... once did a line of coke that was 20 centimeters long.

... liked pain, finding that "cutting herself was her favorite pastime.”

... became violent when she mixed drugs with alcohol: “When she drank with the drugs, she showed her worst side. She liked vodka with supermarket tropical juice. Her behavior became manic. She would cut herself or attack others.”

... first hurt herself after exposing her own affair to her jailed spouse: “The first time I saw her do it was after she told [Blake Fielder-Civil] we’d had a fling. She cut herself with scissors from shoulder to wrist.”

Maybe we shouldn't necessarily believe the engagement rumors swirling around supermodel Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, the star NFL quarterback.

Brady's father, Tom Brady Sr., told The Boston Globe on Friday that reports of his son's engagement to Gisele were just "Rumor, rumor, rumor. We don't know a thing about it. Nobody told me. We talked to him and there's nothing to say."

This from a man who was supposedly there at the time.

The Boston Herald also reported that the couple strolled down Bean Town's Beacon Street on Friday – and that Bundchen, 28, was without an engagement ring.

Bundchen's twin sister, Patricia, also denied the report, saying in an e-mail that the engagement – which first surfaced on celebrity news site – is "not true."

A rep for the Brazilian model declined to comment on the story. Stacey James, a spokesman for the New England Patriots, responded:

"I heard the report that he [proposed] on a plane, but I don't think it's true." Still, he added, "Tom keeps his private life private."

Either way, the man's seeing Gisele nude. This changes little.

A certain supermodel and Super Bowl MVP are tying the knot, according to celebrity news sources. He's decided to offer a lifetime contract to his #1 tight end / receiver / deep threat he likes to nail in the slot. Sorry for the football puns.

Tom Brady apparently proposed to Gisele Bundchen on a private jet on Christmas eve - and she said yes. If it's true, congratulations to the happy couple - but please, can someone take away Bridget Moynahan's belts and shoelaces? Thanks.

Tamera Mowry, Adam Housley

BRADY'S BUNDCHEN: By completing this recent transaction, Tom now has exclusive rights to Gisele Bundchen naked. Now that's a hell of a signing bonus.

The New England Patriots QB, who has been sidelined with a knee injury all season but has passed the time running errands for Gisele like a madman, proposed on a private jet that took off from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey and landed in Boston.

There were four dozen white roses on board, as well as champagne. Along with Brady and Gisele were her parents. Tom was nervous before popping the Q.

This engagement should provide some solace to Tom Brady with his Pats potentially out of the playoffs this year, though they are still alive with a week to go.
