Looking gorgeous as ever, former Hills star Lauren Conrad hosted the launch of her new book L.A. Candy at Thompson Hotel on Wednesday in Beverly Hills.

The retired reality TV star hopes to her her book adapted for the small screen: "It’s one of my hopes," said Conrad, 23, of a televised version of Candy.

"We're going to start working on that when I get back from my book tour."

Here's the star at last night's event ...

As much as she complained about being on The Hills towards the end, would Lauren Conrad be open to a return - or field new offers for reality TV forays?

"I asked not to hear them," she said. "I said, 'Don't tell me anything.' So, problem solved, and I got to enjoy time away. But my two months is up now."

She's also not giving up her fashion collection: "I have my line at Kohl's but I'm also working on putting back together my original line," she told E! News.

One thing she won't be doing? Checking out Kristin Cavallari's debut on The Hills. "I probably won't watch it," Conrad said. "I'm not a huge TV person."

Somewhat ironic from a person made famous by TV, but more power to her. Click to enlarge more Lauren Conrad pictures from last night's book event ...

David Letterman has apologized for his jokes about Gov. Sarah Palin and her family that sparked angry replies from the former V.P. nominee earlier this week.

Sort of.

Tuesday night on The Late Show, Letterman quipped that Palin's daughter was knocked up Alex Rodriguez during a Yankees game, and that the hardest part of the Palins' New York City trip was keeping Eliot Spitzer away from their daughter.

This prompted the governor and her husband, Todd Palin, to slam Letterman for his "sexually perverted comments" about their 14-year-old daughter, Willow.

Todd fumed on Facebook: "Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too."

A familiar David Letterman expression, certainly applicable to this story.

Last night, Dave said he was referring to Bristol Palin, 18, not Willow. He admitted his jokes were in "questionable taste" and that he regrets telling them.

But, he added, he did nothing to advocate sexual relations with a minor, nor would he ever. As far as being guilty of anything but making jokes in bad taste, of which he has told thousands over the years, the talk show host pleaded innocent.

That about sums it up if you ask us. An acknowledgment that he crossed the line was warranted, as was clarification on what he meant by the aforementioned jokes. But, by the same token, the Palins could chill the eff out a little.

Letterman even invited Sarah to come on the show as a gesture of good faith. Here's his explanation of, and commentary on, the recent controversy:

Rumored new fling Aubrey Graham among them.

Rihanna and the Canadian rapper to whom she's recently been linked were first spotted smooching on May 18 at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in Manhattan.

Then, last night, the hot pair was sighted again!

Rihanna and Graham (who goes by the single name of Drake) laughed and chatted at a bash for the Black Eyed Peas at the NYC nightspot The Griffin.

Here's a picture of the two of them together ...

Rihanna – looking stunning in a light grey sweater dress and large hoop earrings – arrived at The Griffin shortly after 11:30 p.m. and stayed nearly two hours.

Her alleged beau left a bit earlier – only to wait outside the club's front doors. Both Rihanna and Drake drove off at the same time, in separate vehicles.

While in the club, a happy-looking Rihanna, 21, "appeared to be enjoying herself," holding court in a banquette to the left of the stage, according to sources.

What do you think? Do Rihanna and Drake make a cute couple?

After the tumultuous last week that saw her sister quit, return, be locked in the "lost chamber," hospitalized and quit again, Holly Montag made her debut on NBC's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here on Wednesday night.

"I'm Holly Montag, you might know me from a little show called The Hills," Heidi's sister said upon arriving last night and leaving the cast wanting answers.

The group froze and was instantly suspicious, but seemed to come around as they saw Holly for what she is - a far less interesting version of Heidi Montag.

Heck, Celebrity is pushing it harder regarding Holly than it is with the Baldwin brothers. Although Janice Dickinson quickly took Holly under her ancient wing.

Speidi has departed Costa Rica for good, leaving Holly Montag to take over for the gruesome twosome. No offense, Holly, but please, do something for once.

Holly did make an impression early in her tenure on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, however, helping the women's team win a crucial food challenge.

Stephen Baldwin referred to Holly as "the sister-in-law of the thing that was," which is one of the better ways we've heard someone describe Spencer Pratt.

"Holly appears to be less high maintenance then Heidi," brother Daniel said. "Thank Jesus Christ almighty she hasn't pulled out a spray bottle of shampoo!"

Check out a video of Holly's moments in the jungle below ...

Chris Brown may be back in the public eye more often lately, but the singer has yet to find a way to get rid of that pesky court case hanging over his head.

Seeking to have Brown's felony assault charges thrown out, attorney Mark Geragos requested, and was denied a postponement of his preliminary hearing.

Geragos wanted a hold on the case, claiming the disturbing, leaked police photo of Rihanna's bruised face, obtained by TMZ, compromises Brown's defense.

He had requested access to records of the police's internal investigation, even though per current law, Geragos is only allowed access to the LAPD's records after the preliminary hearing ... which he's trying his hardest to delay.

The California appeals court shot down Geragos' request without giving a reason, and the preliminary hearing is still on schedule for June 22.

The preliminary hearing will determine whether the case against Brown, who has been receiving death threats, goes to trial.

If it does, Rihanna will testify, as we reported last month.

"If the preliminary hearing goes forward, she is legally required to be there, and will answer all questions truthfully," her attorney, Donald Etra, said.

Los Angeles prosecutors have already subpoenaed Rihanna to appear in court to testify in the assault case against her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown.

The "Umbrella" singer was served with the subpoena in person Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles, summoning her to the June 22 preliminary hearing in court.

If it gets to that point, Rihanna will also be subject to cross-examination by Geragos. The felony case could end any time with a plea bargain, making the hearing unnecessary, but the chances of that happening are unclear.

Brown has actively sought a plea for months, hoping to avoid jail time. The fact it has reached this stage suggests the sides are not too close to an agreement.

If Rihanna does end up testifying, it "can make or break the case," says L.A. criminal defense attorney Jeffery Rubenstein, who is not involved with the case.

"Rihanna's willingness to testify and be truthful about what happened is a step closer to convicting Brown. On the other hand, if prosecutors fail to present a case, Geragos can seek to dismiss or reduce the charges on the spot."

Regardless, he might want to tell Chris to rethink is PR strategy.

It's been about 12 hours since we learned the tragic, devastating news of Paris Hilton's shocking breakup with boyfriend du jour Doug Reinhardt.

Now that the dust is settling, the tears have stopped flowing, and we are able to keep food down again, we're looking into what led to the split.

Well, according to reports, Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt got into a big fight at The Darkroom in L.A. on Tuesday night, which was the final straw.

The nuclear blowout ended with Paris giving her man, who previously dated LC and Amanda Bynes, the heave-ho before storming out of the club.

But wait, it gets better.

SIX MONTHS IN PARIS: Doug Reinhardt had a heck of a run.

Sources close to Paris say she immediately revoked his privileges to enter the gated community where she lives, so early on Wednesday morning, Doug Reinhardt stood outside the barricade, beside himself, realizing he was locked out for good.

The source says Paris couldn't be happier, as she realizes "Doug is a douche just like everyone tried to tell her and that he was only dating her for publicity."

Well, that about covers it. Your move, Doug.

Following a transfer of prison residences, music producer and murderer Phil Spector was photographed by the California Department of Corrections again this week.

Unlike his prior photo shoots, Spector, who was sentenced to 19 years for murdering actress Lana Clarkson, was not allowed to wear a wig, per state regulations.

As a result, you have one of the creepiest celeb mugshots in history.

Yes, it's even worse the previous Phil Spector mug shot. It is quite terrifying. And a little amusing in a morbid sort of way. Follow the jump to check it out:

Are Sean and Jayden getting a new daddy?

Britney Spears took a break between concerts to walk around Hyde Park in London yesterday with her adorable sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Sandra and Louis

Accompanying them was none other than the singer's agent and new, confirmed boyfriend, Jason Trawick. Isn't it nice to see her with a stable guy in her life?

Here's the hot mom with her new hot guy:

Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline have yet to comment publicly on the fact that Britney and Jason are dating. Expect a statement from their rep soon.

All we've got to say is, how long before Britney and Jason Trawick walk down the aisle? We're thinking late summer, maybe a nice Labor Day weekend wedding.

We can't wait, what about you?

Heather Graham and Kristin Cavallari are never afraid to show some skin - when it comes to stirring up trouble or in a sexy cutout dress they both wore.

Both blonde bombshells left their locks loose and curly and kept their accessories simple for their ensemble, as you can see in the two images below.

While the actress who enjoys epic boink-a-thons picked black strappy heels to complete her look, Kristin Cavallari opted for nude peep-toe pumps.

It looks like Heather went with no underwear and the new Hills villain wore a flesh-colored coverup underneath, but, tough to say. We may never know.

On a side note, Kristin wore it to The Wizard of Oz exhibition at L.A.'s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Tuesday night. Hills fans recall who used to attend that same institution: Lauren Conrad herself.

Anyway, who wore it better? Tell us below!

Heather-Kristin

Who rocked this frock harder?
