On last night's episode of The Hills, the crew returned from vacation and the aftershocks from Brody and Audrina’s Hawaiian hookup were felt throughout SoCal.

In short, Jayde Nicole went ballistic, and may be slightly insane.

Lauren Conrad warned Audrina Patridge early on that Brody Jenner admitted his mistake to his girlfriend, and that a jealous Jayde was far from pleased.

When Jayde found out Audrina was en route to Frankie's Delgado's barbecue, she grew pissed and her Playmate friends started talk of a girl fight.

Brody told her to relax and apologized again, and Frankie tried to cover for him, saying they just fell asleep, but Jayde wasn't buying it - and Audrina's apparent blowing of a kiss in Brody's direction just made things worse.

That led to the first of two Jayde Nicole-Audrina Patridge showdowns.

Audrina claimed she “would never go there” and they just "stayed up talking" that night. But Jayde snapped, “If you sleep in my boyfriend’s bed, something happened,” and proceeded to pound Jägermeister straight from the bottle.

The following night, things got even worse when Stephanie and Audrina hit up the hot club MyHouse even though they knew Jayde would be there with Brody.

Brody told his drunk girlfriend he wouldn’t tell Audrina to leave because they’re friends. “Not anymore,” replied the jealous, slurring Jayde Nicole. Oh, snap.

The Playboy bunny then told her posse of girlfriends - “playmates who bring the drama” - that Brody was just asking for them to get riled up. They obliged.

Jayde's pal Jo got all up in Audrina’s grill. Frankie tried to step in, but Jayde was fuming, calling her names, downing more Jäger and threatening to punch her.

In a new interview with Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Edwards says it's "complicated" when asked about the state of her marriage to John Edwards, a former presidential aspirant whose affair with Rielle Hunter torpedoed his career.

"Neither one of us is out the door," said Elizabeth, who has terminal breast cancer. "So I guess it's day by day, maybe it's month by month."

Elizabeth Edwards - who spoke to Winfrey from her family's home in Chapel Hill, N.C. - says they're "still living together." But asked if she still loves her husband, she replied, "You know, that's a complicated question."

Denise Richards can sympathize with such complicatedness, though the federal investigation into John's suspect payments to Rielle take it a step further.

Days after declaring his second run for president in 2006, John confessed that he had an affair. The National Enquirer broke the story about a year later.


Looking back on their marriage, Elizabeth tells Winfrey she asked John Edwards for just one gift before her wedding 31 years ago: "I wanted him to be faithful to me. It was enormously important to me." That's gotta hurt.

He long denied it publicly, but John Edwards confessed to the affair in an August 2008 interview after getting busted visiting Rielle Hunter and their alleged love child. He still denies paternity of her daughter, Frances Quinn.

Asked about the baby issue, Elizabeth says, "I've seen a picture of the baby. I have no idea. It doesn't look like my children, but I don't have any idea."

As for how John met Rielle Hunter, Elizabeth offers this:

"What John said was that this woman spotted him in the hotel in which he was staying. He was meeting someone in the restaurant bar area, and [Hunter] verified with someone who he worked with that it was John," she recalled.

"John went to dinner at a nearby restaurant and when he walked back to the hotel, she was standing in front of the hotel. She said to him, 'You are so hot.'"

Choosing not to address Rielle Hunter by name, Elizabeth continued, "This person is very different from me, and really very different from him. So, this was a pretty big leap for him. Maybe it's being so different is what was attractive."

Asked about her mortality, Elizabeth says it's not "frightening," but she prays for an "ever-after. I would be leaving part of my family, but I can do [that] and join another party and wait for that day when we're all together again."

"In some ways, it's something you yearn for."

IT'S COMPLICATED: John Edwards' marriage to Elizabeth is certainly murky after his boning of Rielle Hunter. His political future is quite clear, however - there is none.

As she tries to get over her estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil, Amy Winehouse is apparently finding comfort in a pair of St. Lucia natives.

The singer has now been romantically linked to a horse riding tour guide, Fidel Missore, on the island where she has spent most of the year.

While Amy copes with news that Blake knocked up Gilleen Morris in rehab, the Sun says "Fidel has been a shoulder to cry on ... he has been her rock."

The troubled Wino appeared in high spirits after her dramatic health scare on Friday night when she was spotted frolicking with Fidel Missore.

Despite spending Friday night in hospital after suffering dehydration, Amy was back at her resort laughing and joking with her new companion.

  • Fidel Missore Pic
  • Anton Moses Pic

The 25-year-old Wino was scantily-clad compared to Missore, who must be saying all the right things to Amy, as she squealed with delight and jumped into his arms while she wrapped her legs around his waist. Such amazing chemistry.

But the public display of affection with Fidel comes amid reports Amy is growing close to another St. Lucian - a local shell salesman named Anton Moses.

After a holiday romance with Josh Bowman, reports claim Amy Winehouse has moved on to Anton, setting aside time when he finishes work each day.

A source told the Daily Star:

"Amy has become very cozy with Anton. Amy sets aside every evening to spend time with him and each day he saves her his best shell."

Ah, young Caribeean romance.

Don't call it a comeback. No, really, she's not coming back yet.

With Chris Brown's birthday today, we hoped to report that Rihanna was set for her first public performance since the "alleged" brutal assault by her ex.

Dining Out, Solo

But the upcoming show has been abruptly scrapped.

The 21-year-old R&B star had been scheduled to perform later this month in the United Arab Emirates. But Yassin Matbouly, of concert organizer Vibe Entertainment Management Agency, said in a statement that Rihanna's not ready.

"We want to share with you that Rihanna and her management will not be holding a concert at this time as it is not appropriate timing for her," he said.

There was no immediate comment from Rihanna, who had been laying low in Barbados until recently - and reportedly cozying up to ex Negus Sealy.

Rihanna is pumped for a return to live performing ... just not yet.

The "Umbrella" singer did make a public appearance last night, showcasing some seriously fancy fashion at the Costume Institue Gala in New York.

For now, though, she's not planning on any concert dates. Although she's said to be focusing on work and putting the events of February 8 behind her.

The show was scheduled to take place May 28, the date of Brown's next court date in the pending assault and criminal threats case against him.

Concert producers are now eyeing dates for sometime this fall. Here's hoping she turns the corner and gets back in the swing of things soon.

Yesterday afternoon, human rights advocate and lawyer Gloria Allred filed a petition to appoint a guardian for the eight infant children of Nadya Suleman.

The goal of the child labor lawsuit is to ensure they are financially represented.

You Da Mom!

"In the case of the octuplets, rather than choosing to provide her children with a normal life, their mother has chosen instead to commercially exploit them," Allred said in a statement on behalf of Paul Peterson, a child labor advocate.

"The Guardian will assure that the childrens' compensation is fair and that their money is segregated and supervised. In other words, professional management will help to safeguard the babies' separate interests and rights."

A hearing is set for June 22, although Gloria Allred said they are open to dropping it if Suleman, a.k.a. Octomom, agrees to help appoint a guardian.

Suleman, whose attorney said the octuplets are "incidental" to her ability to attain income, has issued a response to the lawsuit, telling Radar Online:

"I feel like as though many, many, many, many people in this society are trying to distract me from taking care of my babies," said the drain on society.

"I'm gonna continue to live in my baby bubble with my kids. And whoever wants a piece of me or the babies, keep on trying. That's all I have to say."

You heard her, Social Services. Please, keep trying.

We'd wish Chris Brown a happy 20th birthday on this 5th of May, but we're not sure he's deserving. Hopefully the music star lays low today and reflects on the serious crimes he is charged with after "allegedly" beating Rihanna to a pulp.

So enjoy your birthday, Chris, if only because it may be your last one in some time that isn't spent behind bars. That's enough to make you go ...

Chris Brown: Oh Yeah!

Brown has pleaded not guilty to assault and criminal threats charges stemming from the February 8 attack on his then girlfriend. If convicted, he faces nearly five years in prison, though he is trying to hammer out a plea deal.

If Brown and the prosecution are unable to reach a mutually acceptable plea bargain, his attorney will have no choice proceed with the defense - likely to center around the leaked Rihanna pic that surfaced after the incident.

Will he beat the rap? Will he learn from his ways? Will he fly into another blinding rage over rumors that Rihanna is now back with her ex, Negus Sealy?

Only time will tell. For now, we'll just mark Chris Brown's 20th birthday with a little photo gallery of the embattled star. Click to enlarge:

While Britney Spears is busy getting accosted by drunk fans on her Circus tour, a couple of her former clowns are starring in their own shows in L.A.

Spears' ex-manager Sam Lutfi and former boyfriend Adnan Ghalib appeared in separate hearings yesterday. Both shady hangers-on have already been banned from further contact with their former meal ticket through at least 2012.

Now the courts are sorting through the legal fallout.

Sam Lutfi fared considerably better than Adnan Ghalib, as a Superior Court judge set a trial date of March 8, 2010, for the former manager's lawsuit claiming defamation and unpaid fees against Spears and her parents, Jamie and Lynne.

Lawyers for both Lutfi and Jamie and Lynne Spears say they will spend the next 10 months attempting to resolve the case outside of court.

But in case that doesn't work out, they have a game plan. An attorney for Jamie Spears said that a countersuit may be filed against Lutfi.

Lynne Spears' attorney, meanwhile, said that he will likely seek to dismiss the portion of Sam Lutfi's lawsuit that's directed against her.

The grounds for that claim? That his allegation of defamation based on her new memoir, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, is actually an infringement on Lynne Spears' right to free speech.

Particularly, her right to freely criticize whomever she chooses, especially when they play as large a part as Lutfi appeared to in the downfall of her daughter.

The trial date comes just days after Lutfi filed an appeal against a judge's extension of the restraining order obtained against him by the Spears family.

Having just announced that she's four months pregnant with husband Chris Ivery, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo smiled and showcased the beginnings of a baby bump as she shopped in Hollywood with a friend over the weekend.

The star stopped into Joan’s on Third and looked at furniture at Cisco Home. Here's Pompeo along with her husband, who she married in 2007 ...

THE REAL McDREAMY: Patrick Dempsey may have her heart on television, but Ellen Pompeo's true, longtime love is fellow Boston-area native Chris Ivery.

The 38-year-old's character, Meredith Grey, is all set to finally marry Derek Shepherd, a.k.a. McDreamy, on Thursday's Grey's Anatomy. Does Pompeo's real-life pregnancy coinciding with this event mean a McBaby will be in the works?
