Until now, Lydia Hearst was best known as the heiress to the Hearst Publishing empire, and also for briefly dating Cisco Adler and making out with Aubrey O'Day.

But really, who among us hasn't had the latter said of them?

Anyway, Lydia's apparently looking for more publicity and/or cash, what with the publishing industry tanking and all - so she's posing for GQ Italy!

Okay, so Megan Fox pictures, they're not. But hey, every aspiring model and actress has a right to bare all in a magazine that will accept them.

As for why Lydia Hearst is posing nude like this in GQ, the competition for Esquire, which her family owns? Well, they got Megan Fox. Sorry, L.

Attention Brittany Snow fans: Don't panic.

Despite reports that the Gossip Girl spinoff has been axed, the '80s series is not officially dead yet, according to a source close to the CW network.

The CW programmers are still making their decisions, and that everything, including Snow and Krysten Ritter's new series, is under consideration.

Why wouldn't a Gossip Girl spinoff get an automatic pickup - especially with flashback teases set to air on Monday night's all-new Gossip Girl?

The problem for all of the CW pilots this year is that with Privileged likely to get a pickup, there are only three spots left in the CW's schedule for new shows.

The original Gossip Girl, along with 90210, Supernatural, Smallville, One Tree Hill and America's Next Top Model have all already been ordered for next year.

Throw in the new Melrose Place (which seems to be a virtual certainty), and you've got just two holes left to fill. The Beautiful Life (starring Mischa Barton) and the Vampire Diaries are also strong competition for the Gossip Girl spinoff.

So that's where it stands, and it probably doesn't look good. But when you consider the fact that big publicity comes with all things associated with Gossip Girl, which made stars of Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, you never know.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag have been all smiles since they tied the knot on April 25, and The Hills' plastic pair is still happy to talk about their big day.

"I was just sitting there in my dress like, 'I am really about to marry the most amazing man, and this is such a great experience," Heidi told Extra.

Not so amazing for Spencer Pratt? Being afraid Heidi's dad would punch him.

"I was still nervous her dad was going to punch me in the face right when he got there," Spencer recalled, as Heidi's family aren't exactly his biggest fans.

It's official though, so no going back - Heidi Montag is now Heidi Pratt.

"I legally changed my name to Pratt," she reveals. "I'm very excited."

Fearing Swine Flu

As for that whole epidemic going on in Mexico - a.k.a. "pig flue country" -where they just filmed Heidi's new music video? Also a little scary.

"We were masked up. I was scared," Heidi admits.

Spencer Pratt seconds that: "I didn't even want to take my mask off. I have enough to worry about in Hollywood than the swine flu."

The couple will have many more chances to discuss their life together, as Heidi promises they'll be together for a long time to come"

"It's real love and we will be married forever and ever and ever!"

We can only hope, if only for the staged photo ops and passive-aggressive fights on The Hills. Click to enlarge some terrific Speidi moments ...

Whoever imagined Jordan Miller, who started a Britney Spears fan site while a high school sophomore in 2004, would one day receive half a million visits a day?

Whoever imagined Miller, now a typical college student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, would be threatened with legal action by her dad, Jamie Spears?

Miller's world was turned upside-down last fall after he received an angry phone call from the pop star's father-guardian, accusing him of copyright violations.

"I'm working my ass off to report on this girl," Miller said.

In February 2008, after Britney Spears was forced into a treatment program for bipolar disorder, Jamie Spears was awarded conservatorship, giving him the authority to make legal, financial and medical decisions on behalf of his daughter.

Miller posted several blogs begging for Britney to be "freed."

Baby-Faced Britney

One fan site creator's opinions on Britney and posting of stories about Jamie Lynn Spears apparently have not gone over well with the stars' father and chief handler.

He also posted about a magazine story that suggested Britney's younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, was expecting her second child. Then his cell phone rang.

Miller said Jamie Spears told him, "I am going to destroy your ass."

"I was really freaking out for a good three or four weeks," Miller said. "Lately, I've been doing my own thing. I just kind of want to keep it going."

Each day, Miller scans the Internet for stories about Britney Spears, posts them on his site, BreatheHeavy.com, and adds his own comments. He encourages her fans to send him Circus tour photos or updates regarding her.

Miller said the site keeps him busy, but it is not as demanding now as it was when the troubled, out-of-control singer was shaving her head, bashing vehicles with an umbrella, being photographed without no underwear, and so on.

Their parents were paired together on the Republican ticket in the 2008 election. Now Meghan McCain and Bristol Palin are both speaking up on premarital sex.

Bristol, a teen mom and the daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, is now a "teen ambassador" for the Candie's Foundation, and an advocate for abstinence.

You cannot make this stuff up.

Meghan McCain doesn't see eye-to-eye with her counterpart, though.

Senator John McCain's daughter, 24, says that Bristol Palin has a right to her opinion and she respects it, but there's a lot more to consider on the topic of sex.

"Daughters of Republican politicians aren't expected to have sex, let alone enjoy it - as if there were some chastity belt automatically attached to us female offspring," she writes in her column for The Daily Beast.

"God forbid that anyone talk realistically about life experiences and natural, sexual instincts. Nope, the answer is always abstinence."

So if Meghan McCain is not advocating abstinence only, like Bristol Palin is, what is her proposed solution to prevent unwanted teenage pregnancies?

"Honestly, the key is communication between parents and children. At the end of the day, the worst thing parents can do is raise children who are not prepared for the situations they may encounter, especially when they’re not planned," she says.

And she's not taking it easy on her dad's party either.

"Unfortunately, Republicans typically don’t like to discuss or deal with things they think are wrong or immoral. And that’s a huge mistake," she writes in her column, appropriately called "The GOP Doesn't Understand Sex."

"If we can’t discuss birth control in addition to abstinence, in a non-judgmental way, kids will make bad choices for lack of access to informed, safe options."

So what she's saying is, teens may have unprotected sex, get knocked up, be forced into sham engagements to their thuggish baby-daddies, and have their allowance raised if they agree to become spokespersons for sham abstinence groups?

Makes sense to us. Click to enlarge more Meghan McCain pictures ...

Is there any look Rihanna can't pull off?

Rihanna, Glasses

In the past week alone, Rihanna has debuted more eye-popping fashion choices than we can even count. While Chris Brown attempts to lay low as he awaits trial on felony charges, RiRi appears determined to show she's moved on.

Not necessarily with Negus Sealy, just moved on. Girl is everywhere cameras can find her these days, and she's looking great - and different - every time!

We love it. Click to enlarge the Rihanna pictures below and scroll through some of the awesome singer's style selections of the past week or two:

Elizabeth Edwards may have terminally cancer, but she's not fading away into the sunset quietly - she's apparently determined to take down Rielle Hunter.

On Thursday's Oprah Winfrey Show, Elizabeth once gain slammed the mistress of her husband John - this time on television. The gloves are coming off.

Elizabeth recalled to Winfrey how Rielle Hunter - whom she never mentioned by name picked up her husband in a hotel, telling him, "You are so hot."

It was as awkward hearing the terminally ill, scorned wife recall and try to say this as it probably was to have witnessed it happen in the first place.

"There is no excuse for women to do this," said Edwards, whose book, Resilience, is coming out soon. "Women need to have respect for other women."

"You can't just knock on that door and say you're out, I'm in," added the mother of three. "If you admire that life, you can't just take it. Build your own."

Rielle

Elizabeth also discussed whether John Edwards is the father of Hunter's one-year-old daughter. Rielle now reportedly wants a paternity test after basically taking the fall for John and falling off the face of the planet after the story broke.

"I've seen a picture of the baby," she told Oprah. "I have no idea. It doesn't look like my children, but I don't have any idea."

John and Elizabeth say they working on repairing their 31-year marriage.

Asked if they are in a better place, John told Winfrey, "I feel like we're getting to it. It's not over, but we're getting to it. I love her. I care about her."

Says Elizabeth, "It's an ongoing process of finding your feet again. You know, finding, sort of retelling your story to yourself. There's a lot of adjustments to make. And when you talk about trust, I think that's probably the most difficult hurdle."

She's merely a few hours old right now, but Chyler Leigh's third child (and second daughter) is already displaying one talent – perfect timing!

Leigh, 27, and her husband, actor Nathan West, 30, welcomed their daughter Anniston Kae just seven days after she wrapped filming the fifth season of Grey's Anatomy, according to the actress' rep: "Both mother and child are healthy."

Rielle Hunter Baby: Frances Quinn Hunter

Anniston Kay, who weighed 7 lbs., 1 oz., joins Noah Wilde, 5, and Taelyn Leigh, 2. And watch out Octomom - Chyler hasn't ruled more kids yet.

"We love our family," West said back in November. "If I wasn’t working as much and [Chyler] didn't have the show, we'd have five or six kids."

Grey's Anatomy star Chyler Leigh has three children with her husband, Nathan West, as of this afternoon. With pictures like this, you can certainly see how.

The couple, who met at a pilot audition 10 years ago and co-starred on 7th Heaven, will celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary later this year.

Chyler Leigh "is a phenomenal actress and an amazing best friend, but hands down, mothering is what she does best," her doting hubby added.

Congrats to Chyler and Nathan!

In his latest column, which was originally about the Lakers-Rockets playoff series, ESPN's Sports Guy, Bill Simmons, relays an argument he had with his wife over Jayde Nicole and Audrina Patridge and their feud on The Hills. Really.

It is certainly a controversial topic that had people buzzing this week. Here's the excerpt from Simmons' column about the latest epic Hills confrontation ...

Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne Pic

I woke up six minutes into The Hills and the Sports Gal refused to change the channel because Audrina Patridge slept in Brody Jenner's bed in Hawaii and Brody's Playmate girlfriend, Jayde Nicole, was furious about it.

These are the moments when Bruce Jenner feels proud for all the sacrifices he made trying to win that Olympic gold medal in 1976.

But this led to an awesome moment in Twisted Female Logic: Audrina's friend, LC, then blamed Brody for not sticking up for Audrina and siding with his girlfriend because it was Brody's fault that he didn't kick Audrina out.

No blame for Audrina for going after someone else's dude? Really, LC?

Brody Jenner says his feelings lie with Jayde. Do yours?

I sided with Brody, the Sports Gal sided with Lauren Conrad, and I'm ashamed to admit we argued about this for 20 minutes. My argument in three parts:

  1. Audrina is a tramp.
  2. All women are natural enemies even if they pretend this isn't the case.
  3. A single woman will always do whatever it takes to land someone as appealing as Bruce Jenner's untalented but handsome son, even if it means seducing him on a reality-TV show and promising secrecy with him even though that show will be airing two months later.

The Sports Gal thus refused to admit I was right and claims she knows plenty of women who wouldn't do this. When I asked her to name these women, she named a bunch of her married friends, which indirectly proved my point:

Nearly all SINGLE woman between the ages of 25-40 will do whatever it takes to land an appealing male, even trashing whatever female code of ethics allegedly exists.
