Here's a Grey's Anatomy spoiler we didn't see coming.

According to court papers, movie exec Alex Young, 37, has petitioned for a divorce, citing irreconcilable differences with actress Kate Walsh, as of Nov. 22.

"The couple remain on friendly terms and sincerely hope the media will respect their privacy during this difficult time," they said in a statement Thursday.

Walsh, who went on to star in the mediocre spinoff Private Practice after making it big on Grey's Anatomy, wed Young – a production co-president at 20th Century Fox – on September 1, 2007, in the town of Ojai, just north of Los Angeles.

In October 2007, Kate Walsh talked about the pair's whirlwind relationship, telling Ellen DeGeneres, "There was this kind of funny moment, after we were like we're married and all of the hoopla was over and we were like, 'What do we do now?'"

Guess she ran out of answers to that question sooner than expected.

Maybe it's the name (some would call it the worst in the history of celebrity babies).

Maybe the general economic climate is causing celeb gossip magazines to cut back.

Maybe Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are just kinda lame.

Whatever the reason, the N.Y. Post's Page Six reports that the couple is having a hard time selling the first pictures of new baby boy Bronx Mowgli Wentz.

According to sources, “nobody wants them. Covers of them tend not to sell well.”

We assume them means the two dweebs below. We know nothing moves gossip magazines like celebrity babies, and understandably so. Cute overload!

NO TAKERS: Fret not, Pete and Ash: Douchebag Quarterly may be interested!

With her trusty sort-of-friend Lauren Conrad along for moral support, Audrina Patridge went shopping at Ashley Paige, trying on new bikinis while LC, a camera crew from The Hills and a lucky celebrity gossip photographer looked on ...

Given their increasing exposure and the ever-present risk of skin cancer, Audrina's fake boobs reportedly asked for more coverage than usual. They were denied.

It appears to have been a successful mission. Justin-Bobby will surely appreciate the time and effort invested. Click to enlarge more photos of The Hills duo shopping ...

On Wednesday, we learned that Britney Spears' latest album, Circus, has topped the charts - and her strange friend Mel Gibson couldn't be more proud.

"She's doing great," good ol' Mel told Us Weekly at the Ninth Annual Global Green Sustainable Design Awards in NYC on Wednesday. "She's a sweet girl."

Mel Gibson, who has helped celebrities with sobriety issues over the years (and gone through some interesting incidents himself), privately reached out to Britney Spears - they're former neighbors in Malibu, Calif. - earlier this year.

After her much-publicized public meltdowns, Brit was taken under the wing of Mel and his wife, Robin, and not as any sort of PR stunt, which is pretty cool.

The star's devoted fans may recall that Britney and her father, Jamie Spears, vacationed with the actor and his wife at his ranch in Costa Rica back in May.

Gibson and Spears were also seen at a Beverly Hills cigar bar in June. On an unrelated note, here's Britney - whose Christmas greetings we brought you earlier on this day - singing that timeless holiday classic, "Silent Night," on Ellen ...

Long, soft waves highlight the hairstyles of many celebrities these days.

Take "singer" Jessica Simpson, for example, showcasing her long hue at the launch of her fragrance, Fancy, at Macy's in Chicago. Or Jennifer Lopez, whose gorgeous hair looked similar, albeit in a different hue, at a recent movie premiere.

Blake Fielder-Civil has apparently been moved to a softer jail after "a lag attacked him just 48 hours after he was banged up." Whatever that means.

The translation is that he got his a$$ kicked in jail.

The reason, says The Sun (UK), is that fellow inmates were upset over his treatment of wife Amy Winehouse. That's right, thugz got her back.

Fielder-Civil was moved from London’s notoriously tough Pentonville Prison to Edmunds Hill Jail in Suffolk last weekend "amid fears for his safety."

Blake Fielder-Smoked

A source described the incident to the venerable British newspaper: "Some lads don’t appreciate men who don’t treat their women well. Blake got a bit of a kicking and was moved away from a gang who were after his blood."

Fielder-Civil returned to jail last week to continue serving his sentence for assault and trial-fixing after he was briefly set free a month ago.

He broke his early release terms after failing a drug test... in rehab.

Luckily, before going back to jail, he visited Amy in the hospital where she was being treated for "a bad reaction to medication," which seems to happen to her more than it does the average citizen. She gave him "a farewell bonk."

Friends believe Blake Fielder-Civil took her drugs during the visit.

On her hit CW teen soap opera, Blake Lively's Serena van der Woodsen is one of the most stylish characters on a show full of immaculately dressed Gossip Girls.

But how does her fashion sense stack up with former Playboy model and current Jim Carrey squeeze Jenny McCarthy? Both donned the same Gucci dress recently.

In a new holiday greeting on her official site, recovering singer Britney Spears, along with her two boys, wishes all her fans a Merry Christmas.

As she addresses Britney nation, Sean Preston stands by her side, while Jayden James just sits there in her arms, lookin' cute and burping.

"I want to wish everybody out there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year," Britney says while standing in front of a giant Christmas tree.

"And I want to thank all of my fans for making my album Circus No. 1. So thank you," the star says, "As my son burps."

Britney Spears recently revealed her holiday plans: "It's family time... do the tree thing. The family comes over. It's fun."

It sure is. Here's Brit and the kids with their holiday message:

After The Hills' Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt eloped in Mexico without friends or family present, Heidi's mom Darlene was, well, far from thrilled.

She called Pratt out for being the conniving weasel he is, and even went so far as to suggest Spencer drugged Heidi, which is absurd even for him.

Heidi's sister Holly defends her mother's reaction, however.

"She had a lot of raw feelings and she just kind of let loose about them," Holly Montag told Hollyscoop. "I think she's kind of remorseful about what she said in retrospect. We all understand and everybody understands."

So what does Holly herself think about missing Spencer and Heidi's wedding ceremony, which MTV filmed for an upcoming episode of The Hills?

A little hurt herself, Holly Montag is defending "her mom's fury."

"I was initially a little hurt not being able to be a part of it. But it's her choice and it's a special thing between those two," she said. "I support anything Heidi wants to do. I just want her to be happy and she seems sublimely happy."

Could the rising tension between Spencer and Darlene have played a role in prompting the elopement? According to Holly Montag, it's certainly a possibility.

"I think the wedding was a spur of the moment thing and wasn’t premeditated so that could have something to do with it, not wanting the drama," she said.

Since the Speidi wedding, however romantic, wasn't legal, Holly hopes she'll be invited to the official ceremony... if Spencer and Heidi have one, of course.
