Lauren Conrad is not gonna like this one bit.

At EA Sports Freestyle's FaceBreaker Launch in Hollywood Wednesday, Heidi Montag's sister Holly Montag brought a date: Doug Reinhardt!

"Yeah, we came together," Holly said. "We are just, you know, hanging out."

If you know what they mean!

Doug Reinhardt — whose brief relationship with Lauren Conrad ended on last Monday's episode of The Hills — was the one who got dumped in this, so it remains to be seen if LC would care. Then again, it might not stop it.

Holly Montag isn't the only acquaintance of Lauren that Doug has "hung out" with since the two split. According to a trailer for upcoming episodes of The Hills, he went on a date with Spencer Pratt's sister, Stephanie Pratt.

Guy's a serious player, apparently. Hopefully Doug bats better with all these ladies than his .201 career average in the minors.

The embattled Levi Johnston cleans up nice - and while he hasn't married Bristol Palin yet, he's already got a tattoo of her name inked on his ring finger!

Their hands were never un-clasped as they watched her mom, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, deliver a standout speech at the Republican National Convention.

The Palins have been under the gun ever since she was chosen as John McCain's running mate last Friday, but Sarah responded in kind Wednesday night.

Check out Levi Johnston's "Bristol" tattoo ...

Since Sarah Palin and her family have been the subject of negative rumors and gossip ever since she became the Republican nominee for Vice President, it was interesting to watch her actually talk about politics! What a concept.

Follow the jump for Sarah Palin's speech ...

David Spade is the father of a baby girl born last week in Missouri to Playboy Playmate Jillian Grace, the actor's rep confirmed Thursday.

"David and Jillian have been in close contact throughout her pregnancy and he plans to go see the baby during his first break from shooting Rules of Engagement," Spade's rep told celebrity news magazines.

The actor announced in January that he had a brief relationship with Jillian Grace, and if proven to be the child's father, he would accept responsibility.

This is Jillian Grace. Yes. David Spade hit that.

Rumors began flying in January that Jillian Grace was pregnant with Spade's love child, but it had not been confirmed until now.

The child was born August 26. No other details, including the new celebrity baby's name, were provided at this time.

Raffaello Follieri who?

After a painful, embarrassing and public split with her con-man ex, the lovely Anne Hathaway has another love interest, Life & Style reports.

The 25-year-old Brokeback Mountain star and 37-year-old actor Josh Lucas were spotted dining at Earl's restaurant together during the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado, on Thursday, August 28.

“They definitely looked like a couple,” a witness said.

“They were really into each other, giggling and smiling and even holding hands at one point. You could almost taste their chemistry!”

We don't know if this gossip is true, but at least it makes more sense than the new pairing of Star Jones and Herb Wilson. Seriously, Herb?

Stumbling across this Carrie Underwood photo, we had only two thoughts:

  1. We've gotta listen to more country music.
  2. Tony Romo is a moron.

Enjoy ...

We hope you enjoy this Carrie Underwood picture. We suspect you might. If listening to her beautiful voice doesn't hook you ... those eyes surely will.

Britney Spears is scheduled to kick-off the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night with "some type of performance," MTV confirms!

"MTV has long played an important role in my career," Spears, 26, said in a statement today. "How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs? I'm excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated."

Britney Spears is nominated this year for Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video of the Year for "Piece of Me." She has been nominated a whopping 17 times before but never walked away with a prestigious "Moonman."

Her camp, most notably manager Larry Rudolph, has been denying that a performance is in the works. But that may all be a smokescreen.

Think about it: A flamboyant, kick-ass, secret performance from Britney Spears one year after her epic disaster at this very awards show?

It would either be a terrific way to jump start a long-awaited comeback, or be spectacularly bad, turning her even more into a national joke.

Either way, great celebrity gossip material. Can't wait!

One of the nation's foremost celebrity news and gossip magazines, Us Weekly, is under siege over its current cover story, which features Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin and the headline "Babies, Lies & Scandal."

The weekly celeb gossip tabloid, which recently ran a cover story on Barack Obama and "why he loves" his wife Michelle, is being furiously attacked by supporters of Sarah Palin, who've posted thousands of negative comments.

Not the usual "leave Britney Spears alone!!" comebacks either.

Readers are seriously pissed at the magazine fawning over Obama and then trashing Palin. Many also say that these are family matters which have no bearing on her ability to be Vice President and should be ignored altogether.

SIDE NOTE: OK! seems to do a better job of balancing coverage with its dueling covers this week, both of which promote generally positive stories.

As Palin prepares for the biggest speech of her life tonight, debate over mainstream media (and celeb gossip) coverage of her has reached a fever pitch.

Let us know what you think in the poll below: What do you think of Us Weekly and other celebrity gossip sites' coverage of Sarah Palin?

Just when you thought Levi Johnston had a stranglehold on unwed, teen baby daddy news, out of the woodwork comes the great Casey Aldridge!

Jamie Lynn Spears and her fiance, who's still dealing with rumors that he railed Kelli Dawson feverishly while JLS was preggers, is now looking to bolt ASAP - and plans to take 2-month-old daughter Maddie Briann with him.

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

This new, scandalous chapter in the teen couple's ongoing saga could spell heartache for Jamie Lynn as Casey Aldridge is gearing up for a split - and readying for a courtroom brawl, if needed, in order to keep Maddie.

"He's not a spiteful person," a friend says. "But he feels that he's entitled to a chunk of Jamie Lynn's millions. He plays to win. He doesn't really want custody, but he knows it might be his best weapon against Jamie Lynn."

But don't think that Jamie Lynn Spears will go down without a fight and just give up Maddie Briann. Sources say the 17-year-old may talk to her own attorneys, cut off Casey's money supply and sell their house in Liberty, Miss.

"Jamie Lynn was giving [Casey Aldridge] tens of thousands of dollars to spend on electronics, video games and the new truck that she bought him — in fact, Casey spent $8,000 last month alone on gas and sporting equipment."

Meghan McCain feels for Bristol Palin.

Not only is she expecting her first child at a very early age in the public spotlight, but "it's a rough go being the son or daughter of a politician," John McCain's daughter, 24, writes on her official site, the McCain Blogette.

Having been on "political stages and in campaigns since before I could walk or talk," Meghan McCain continues, "it is often difficult to establish your identity and independence as the son or daughter of a politician."

The younger McCain recalls how when she was 14, a reporter asked her father "about me having a hypothetical abortion, had I been pregnant at 14."

Bristol Palin, 17, is pregnant with boyfriend Levi Johnston's child. Mom Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska, is McCain's running mate.

After a week of controversy, Sarah Palin addresses the Republican National Convention tonight. No matter what happens to the McCain-Palin ticket in this presidential election, Meghan McCain has Bristol Palin's back.

"I have not known Bristol Palin long, but there is a kinship I feel to her as I do other political daughters such as Chelsea Clinton, Jenna and Barbara Bush and Mary Cheney. You can't fully understand it unless you have lived it. So I wanted to let it be known that I support Bristol and the entire Palin family."

Looks like the entertainment world's Sultan of Sleaze has gotten his hands on a new girl ... to help manage his busy schedule, that is.

Holly Montag, the older sister of Heidi Montag from The Hills, has been hired as the personal assistant to the Girls Gone Wild CEO.

Bearded

She's been at it since his release from jail in March.

"His last assistant quit," said an insider to the New York Post. "And Joe aggressively sought out Holly Montag to work for him."

Another source said of Holly and Joe, "She's running his life."

Francis - who is preparing to do battle on Celebrity Apprentice next season, and might also appear on The Hills this season, rumor has it - told the Post, "Holly is fantastic, probably the best assistant I have ever had."

You can read into that however you want.

Either way, Spencer Pratt is probably psyched about this arrangement. Not because he cares about Francis, but because Holly is out of his hair.
