The Olsen Twins are known as celebrity fashion icons, but sometimes, we gotta admit, we have absolutely no idea why. This is one of those cases.

Celebrity fashion and style critics, chime in: Regarding Mary-Kate Olsen's, um, floral attire in the photo below, do you love it, or would you shove it?

As if this developing story couldn't get any weirder, Verne Troyer is now suing Ranae Shrider for allegedly beating the hell out of him.

In a lawsuit which will be filed in Federal court soon, Troyer is accusing Shrider of intentional infliction of emotional distress and battery.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Verne's lawyer, Ed McPherson, tells celebrity news site TMZ, "When you pick up a 2'8" human being and throw him to the floor, it hurts."

Well, it's hard to argue with that.

Others are being sued here as well, including some lawyer who allegedly tried to broker a deal for the sale of the Verne Troyer sex tape.

In the lawsuit, Verne Troyer basically says Ranae Shrider terrorized him.

Once, she even picked the lock to his bedroom door, pushing away a 100 pound scooter that was used to block it, and threw him on the floor. Ouch.

The price of the damages Ranae Shrider did to him? A paltry $20 million. We'll see if Verne's lawsuit holds up or if he takes another (legal) beating ...

The Kress, a four-story Asian-inspired L.A. club, has barely been open one week, but on this night it's hosting the nightclub equivalent of a meeting with the Pope — that is, a visit from the cast and crew of The Hills.

With stars Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge due to arrive at 8:30 p.m. for their standard girl talk over cocktails, The Hills crew is busy prepping the whole place, reports Entertainment Weekly in its new cover story.

LC in Stripes!

Two seats in the corner are reserved, and a production assistant goes around handing out forms asking bystanders to agree to appear on camera.

If they don't, The Hills producers will ask them to move, or shoot around them. Most comply easily, unimpressed by the fact that MTV's highest-rated series will be shooting a scene mere feet from their dinner.

Clearly, they don't know that Lauren and Audrina are having major tension at home, and this could be, like, a totally important conversation.

Finally, Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge themselves arrive at the hip restaurant and take their seats at the bar. No direction. No rehearsals.

They just start talking.

Kim Kardashian who? Ray J looked like his romance with Whitney Houston was going strong at West Hollywood nightclub Villa last weekend.

“They sat very close together. She only had eyes for him,” says an insider. “At one point, she placed her hand on his leg.” You go, Ray!

The source adds that Whitney Houston only drank water that night and looked very happy, and that Ray J was very affectionate.

Another friend says that while their odd relationship sometimes appears rocky, the two never stray too far from each other.

“They’re on and off, but it’s never really over between them,” the pal tells In Touch. “They always pick up where they left off.”

One can only hope a second Ray J sex tape is in the works.

Aspiring actress and star of The Hills Audrina Patridge has launched a new, official blog, where she’ll be updating regularly about her life.

Her latest entries include some of her favorite tunes of late, as well as a video of her and her sister Casey Patridge sharing some “interesting facts” about themselves. There are also some generic pics of her at home, etc.

The Bongo Girl

To be honest, it's not a very interesting site. In fact, it sort of sucks, given the vast amount of content Audrina could post if she were so inclined (no dirt on either Tal Cooperman or Justin-Bobby - come on). Total weak sauce.

Follow the link below to check out her new blog if you want to ... or just ogle the (real or fake) body of Audrina in this nice picture ...

Here's a nice photo of Audrina Patridge in a bikini. We had to get this picture on the site somehow, so we're also reporting news about her official site.

When one of the Girls Next Door battles a High School Musical hottie in a celebrity fashion clash, you know it's going to get ugly.

Or hot.

You be the judge. Here's Ashley Tisdale, attending L.A.'s American Music Awards, and Bridget Marquardt, hitting up the Espy awards in L.A., both wearing the same sexy, glittered, $1,349 platinum frock from Mandalay.

Who wore it better: Ashley Tisdale or Bridget Marquardt?

Either that or they used an file photo, circa 2001. But most likely it's just airbrushing. Only InTouch or Star would actually try to pass off an older picture (as we saw with their recent, outstanding Britney Spears efforts).

Seriously, the last time Jessica Simpson looked like this, she was married to (and cheating on) Nick Lachey while confusing meat products on reality TV. And what's with the plaid? We get it, she "country" now. Yawn.

If the HUGE text covering most of her body were supposed to distract us, you failed, Elle! A word to the wise: Quit wasting your time on this hack and just give us Marisa Miller or someone like that next time, K? Cool.

Jessica Simpson graces the new cover of Elle. We have no clue why.

Sources say former Britney Spears' hanger-on Sam Lutfi won't be legally restrained from seeing her as of today - but it doesn't matter.

She's so over him. Plus, either Jamie Spears or bodyguard Lee will totally break his face if he comes anywhere near her. Who needs courts?

Celebrity news sources report that Britney's lawyers will not ask for a new restraining order when the existing one expires this afternoon.

That's because Sam Lutfi ain't gettin' anywhere near Spears - she wants nothing to do with her shady former BFF ever again. End of story.

The fact that Jamie feels confident that Britney's mindset is stronger than any legal document is an affirmation of Sam's irrelevance.

So this may be the last time we write about Sam Lutfi. Bittersweet, since he provided much entertainment. But we're glad to see this worm go.

Britney Spears has apparently fallen for one of her bodyguards — a former Israeli soldier, according to the UK's questionable The Sun.

The 26-year-old "singer," who's battling to get her volatile private life back on track, is dating the muscle-bound tough guy named Lee.

Lee is the supposedly fourth (!) member of staff dated by Britney Spears, for whom he has worked full-time for the past six months.

Sources say Lee has been spending his days off by Britney's side and even sleeps under the same roof at her home in Studio City, Calif.

Britney and Lee hit it off immediately as he is "her type." We do not know what that means, as she's dated "types" like K-Fed, JR Rotem, Adnan Ghalib, Isaac Cohen and Jason Alexander to name a few - but good for her!

They are in Mexico together having a great time.

Do you think Britney Spears and Lee are dating - and does anyone know Lee's last name? Help The Hollywood Gossip help you!

Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez is playing hardball against wife Cynthia in their divorce case, saying he wants their prenuptial agreement enforced.

In court papers obtained by the New York Daily News, A-Rod's side responds point by point to the July 7 divorce filing by Cynthia Rodriguez.

Nose Picking By Alex Rodriguez

A-Rod admits the marriage is "irretrievably broken," but because Florida is a no-fault divorce state, he doesn't have to say why - and won't.

Claims that he "emotionally abandoned his wife and children" and that they broke up because of his "extramarital affairs and marital misconduct" are "immaterial and impertinent and should be stricken," Alex's court filing states.

This is in response to her petition to the court, in which Cynthia Rodriguez asked for the couple's $12 million estate and "equitable distribution" of all assets acquired during her six-year marriage to Alex Rodriguez.

While naming no figure, she petitioned for alimony and support, including benefits as life and health insurance and private schools - suggesting she be able to maintain the "high standard of living" A-Rod has provided.

A-Rod, whose 10-year, $275 million contract with the New York Yankees makes him baseball's highest-paid player, says he wants the prenup enforced. What the terms are is not known, but apparently they don't suit Cynthia.
