Looking at bikini photos of Melissa Joan Hart now, it's hard to believe that she was "horrified" by unflattering bathing suit pics of her - or that she has given birth to two kids in the last three years. But the girl looks hella good.

"I still read blogs about me discussing how fat I've become," the former Sabrina, the Teenage Witch star revealed to People magazine in its new issue.

"Everyone still thinks I'm huge," says Hart, 33, who has Mason, 3, and Braydon, 14 months, with husband, Course of Nature singer Mark Wilkerson.

"But I'm not anymore!"

Reclaiming her figure took Melissa Joan Hart 14 months of hard work.

"It didn't happen by magic – it was as hard for me as it would be for anyone," Melissa Joan Hart says. "I didn't want to take any time away from my sons."

Hart says there are enormous pressures put on by a public that has grown accustomed to seeing stars get back in skinny jeans mere weeks after giving birth, not to mention anorexic waifs like Lindsay Lohan flaunting their rib cages hard.

Her inspiration to finally get back in the best shape of her life? The women in her life, including her friend, actress Jaime Pressly, who has a son, Dezi, 2.

"I realized I didn't have to be heavy just because I have kids," she says. Adds Pressly: "She took the time to take care of herself. I'm blown away."

To get back in bikini shape, Hart worked with nutritionist Derek Johnson to change her diet. She also hit the gym with trainer Mark Harari.

As for how she feels now? "I feel amazing!" she says. "I had to prove to myself that I could do it. I had to give it a go!"

Evangeline Lilly cleans up good.

Lost viewers are used to seeing mud streaked across the freckled features of Kate Austen, whose tank top is torn and fluttering in the island breeze.

In real life, the 29-year-old Canadian beauty looks slightly more pulled together, but without losing her girl-next-door charm or air of exotic mystery.

In short, she is a special breed of stunning.

Featured in the new issue of Women’s Health, the star was asked what Hollywood celebrities she admires most. Her #1 choice? Angelina Jolie. Why?

“No one knows that woman; she’s a complete ice queen, which is perfect," Lily says. "Why should she be any more? She doesn’t owe us anything.”

"I’d love to be her," she adds. "But just the humanitarian side.”

She would not cough up any Lost spoilers (if you will) on the status of her relationship with former co-star Dominic Monaghan, replying “If I were to tell you that Sandra Miggum and Henry Pickett are dating, would you ever care?"

"They’re completely fictional, you don’t know them,” Lilly tells Women's Health.

“Well, people don’t know us. So why should they care?”

We suppose that's a valid point, in a roundabout way.

Former ER star Parminder Nagra returned to the hospital last week, but it wasn't for nostalgic purposes - the 33-year-old gave birth to her first child!

Nagra, who married her longtime lover, celebrity photo journalist James Stenson, back in January, welcomed their adorable, healthy baby son.

Scott and Mason

"Parminder Nagra and husband James Stenson are thrilled to announce the birth of their son, Kai David Singh Stenson," the actress' rep said.

"He was born on Tuesday, May 19. Mother, daddy and baby are all doing great."

Congratulations to Parminder Nagra and James Stenson!

Chris Brown took a break from chilling with Usher and being a complete tool to set the record straight, sort of, on pal Bow Wow's justin.tv channel.

The unintentionally funny video kicks off with a plug. His new album is called Graffiti, and a new single drops this summer, so "be ready for dat."

Then comes this disclaimer about the haters: "Everybody that’s haters, they just been haters. All my real fans, I love you all. I ain’t a monster."

The L.A. District Attorney's office, if it ever tries the star on the felony assault and criminal threats charges he faces, will ultimately decide that.

Still no apology or real explanation on why he went Pitbull on Rihanna that night in February, but here's Chris Brown's lame video shout-out ...

It gets better still. In a second video, Brown calls celebrity gossip blogs liars for saying he had a black eye recently. (As for Rihanna's battered face, after he beat her brains out, leaving her unconscious in a car, Chris conveniently had no comment).

The insightful transcript of the second clip:

Chris Brown: All the blog sites are liars. You guys lie. [points to face] No black eyes! You guys are liars.
Bow Wow: Liars, Liars, Liars! Yeeeeeah!

Amazingly, Brown may actually be a bigger moron than previously thought. His lawyer is surely going to be thrilled about this awesome declaration.

Follow the jump to see the video for yourself ...

Following a string of terrible box office bombs and a country music stint that yielded little aside from fat Jessica Simpson pictures and forgotten lyrics, the star is turning to the last ditch entertainment genre in her bid to stay relevant:

Reality TV.

Announcing the Nominees

The alleged singer and actress, who recently endured criticism of her body while wearing mom jeans and showcasing her giant booty in concert, visited some TV networks to pitch a reality series about society's scrutiny of women's bodies.

The premise of the program, titled The Price of Beauty: "She and a friend set off on a road trip around the world in search of the tightest, cleavage baring tops they can possibly wear to get attention what people find beautiful and why."

In a recent Vanity Fair story, Simpson talked about criticism of her figure: "It comes with what I do, and I know that every day the media's going to challenge me."

The onetime Newlyweds star, 28, will be hands-on with the show - and will try some "shocking things that women do to make themselves beautiful. Picture Fear Factor."

We'll picture Jodie Marsh instead.

The singer's rep tells celebrity news magazine Us Weekly; "Jessica is indeed working on a new show, but network details have not been finalized at this time."

Cross your fingers for Tony Romo cameos.

Lady Gaga frequently channels her inner Britney Spears and walks the street in no pants. Now she’s achieved another Britney feat: the cover of Rolling Stone!

And Britney's covers, while sexy, have nothing on Lady Gaga nude.

She tells Rolling Stone she’s bisexual, but her attraction to women is purely physical. It’s an aspect of her sexuality that makes boyfriends “uncomfortable.”

Watch out, Katy Perry: there’s a new tabloid staple who kisses girls, has Marilyn Manson and Madonna for fans and is on the verge of becoming a pop icon.

Lady Gaga Nude

GAGA FOR FASHION: Clothed or completely naked, Lady Gaga always turns heads.

While some observers look at Lady Gaga fashion and wild paparazzi shots of her and conclude she must be insane, the 23-year-old singer, born Stefani Joanna Angelina Germanotta, reveals the only thing that drives her nuts is being idle.

Lady Gaga’s slavish devotion to be the best (and fashion) drove her to order bags of cocaine and spend hours perfecting her hair and makeup in a tiny Lower East Side apartment after she dropped out of NYU several years ago.

The savvy Gaga reveals that her real musical goals are quite serious, though: “My true legacy will be the test of time, and whether I can sustain a space in pop culture and really make stuff that will have a genuine impact.”

Music aside, she's certainly having an impact as far as her fashion sense is concerned. Click to enlarge more Lady Gaga pictures below and see why ...

While Stephanie Pratt will miss Lauren Conrad when she leaves The Hills, she's already gearing up for a new BFF to enter on the scene: Kristin Cavallari.

Note to K-Cavs: Stephanie's ready to party with you.

"I just met her actually. She was really, really nice and she was the kind of person that if I ever see out, I'd say hi to her because I feel like I know her because she's known Lauren and Heidi forever," Stephanie Pratt said.

"We're excited because [Lauren Conrad] wasn't going out much at the end, so Kristin's all ready to party. I've had such good luck with making friendships with these girls, so I'm optimistic I can make a good relationship with Kristin."

Stephanie Pratt can't wait to crack open a cold one with Kristin Cavallari - and figure out the best strategies for meddling with her personal life - on The Hills this fall.

As for her own perceived role as an annoying instigator - plenty of fans blame her for trouble between brother Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag and LC - Steph says it's not true, despite the fact that it clearly is true on every episode of The Hills.

"Those blogs used to really upset me, about being the meddler," she says.

"But if I wasn't on the show, you'd basically have Heidi, Lauren and [Audrina Patridge] all by themselves because they're not friends. So, you'd be watching nothing if it wasn't for me bringing everyone together."

We're not sure that makes any sense, but for whatever it's worth, Stephanie Pratt is going on record not as a divider, but a uniter. With an IQ of 76.

Recent reports of a proposed Twitter reality show (we wish we were kidding) is not sitting well with two of the "social networking" tool's most famous users:

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.

"I hope this isn't true," Demi wrote on Twitter in response to the planned Twitter series. "If it is, our Twitter time may come to a quick and sad end!"

She added, "This would not be a smart move for Twitter!"

Her husband, Ashton Kutcher - the undisputed Twitter king with over two million followers - was equally disturbed by the idea of a TV series.

"Wow I hope this isn't true," the man known as AplusK wrote on his page. "I really don't like being sold out. May have to take a Twitter hiatus."

How tragic would that be? If he were no longer able to post a half-naked Demi Moore pic for the world to see, the world would be worse for it.

Without Twitter, would these two be forced to speak to each other?

As reported by Access Hollywood, Twitter is teaming up with two production companies to develop an unscripted show based on the site. The show would utilize Twitter, dispatching players on the trail of stars in an interactive, competitive format.

Kutcher said the planned show could create a safety concern for celebrities: "I don't want to be stalked!!! It's all fun and games until somebody gets stalked."

While it may seem like everyone is addicted to Twitter, some celebrities actually steer clear of the site. Kanye West, Ben McKenize, Drew Barrymore, Beyonce and Zac Efron, among others, don't wish to tell the world their every move.

"I don't have a Twitter, a MySpace or a Facebook or anything like that," Zac told People. "I kind of value in people not knowing where I am or what I'm doing."

He added that his Twitter updates wouldn't be worth posting, saying, "I'm on the toilet. Still on the toilet. Guys, dot-dot-dot, out of TP. Still on the toilet."

LOL, Zac. And Amen to that.

You may know as Jessica Szohr as Vanessa Abrams on Gossip Girl.

Despite the widespread fan hatred for her character, the 24-year-old actress of Hungarian and African-American descent is a certified hottie.

A Teen Vogue Cover Girl

Following Rolling Stone's lead in blending hot Gossip Girl stars and food (the cover of Blake Lively and Leighton Meester sharing an ice cream cone is still seared into our brains), Men’s Health asked Jessica Szohr to indulge in some sweets.

How sweet an idea that was ...

YUMMY: Now that is an enticing spread. Seriously, we love cookies.

In the magazine's May issue, the Gossip Girl star explains what foods turn her on. All you have to do, apparently, is give the girl a burger to satisfy her.

“After ten years of eating vegetarian I tried my boyfriend’s," says Jessica, who has been dating her co-star Ed Westwick for several months at least.

"I was completely overwhelmed. It was orgasmic. When I have a craving for something, I just can’t hold myself back.”

Can we get the check in here please?

Paris Hilton is denying report that she and Doug Reinhardt were tossed off a yacht owned by Elton John's beau David Furnish for hooking up in the bathroom.

Tabolids claimed the ho-tel heiress was booted after she and Doug were caught in a "compromising position" on the boat following the Cannes Film Festival.

Surprising Cleavage Alert!

But on her official MySpace page, Paris Hilton blogged that the report "is such a lie that it's a joke! ... I would never do that," insists the ho-cialite.

Note that she said she would never, rather than she did not. Telltale sign of a lie right there. Also, one's credibility is kind of shot when one engages in what can almost be described as a public sex tape with one's man the previous day.

"It's so lame that people will just create these crazy stories," pleaded Paris.

"I can't believe the stories people will make up, so gross! I'm so sick of these false rumors. It's not fair that writers can get away it. They have no credibility."

As opposed to ... forget it.

Boat-banishments, angry neighbors and disgusting PDAs aside, Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt seem very much in love - more and more each day.

"They are very much in love and happy," a source close to them said.

Ah, young romance. Just get married, sell the pictures to OK! Magazine and release the kinky wedding night sex tape, kids. You know you want too.
