A spy for The Hollywood Gossip spotted Pamela Anderson at Fountainbleau in South Beach Saturday night. As you can see, the actress-model was enjoying herself.

Who's the mystery man she's cozying up to? We have absolutely no idea, but love her lean-in approach. Smooth. That and the giant boobs are a deadly 1-2 combo.

DON'T TELL KID ROCK: Someone's movin' in on his girl! Yes, we know they broke up, but he has been known to start fights over Pam regardless of their status.

As far as we know, no simulataneous sex tapes broke out after this photo was taken. With Pamela Anderson, that's not necessarily a guarantee going in.

"Our house is in foreclosure, our water has been shut off twice. Currently, all of our other utilities are overdue. Our marriage has been rocky. [Herpin] kept finding one excuse after another for his failure to even attempt to find employment."

In the latest sign of tumultuous economic times, even former child stars are succumbing to rising adjustable mortgage rates and increased unemployment.

Cody Herpin, a driver and transportation coordinator in the film industry, stopped working after marrying Jodie Sweetin, the former Full House star alleges.

In court papers filed in Orange Country, Calif., Sweetin claims the couple were kept afloat financially with Full House residuals and help from their parents.

The actress filed for legal separation from Cody Herpin last month.

The documents come as part of a request for a court order allowing her to retrieve her stuff, as well as clothing and toys for their 7-month-old daughter, Zoie, in the event Herpin "prevents [her] from peacefully taking these items."

Sweetin claims she worries Herpin "will become very emotional and possibly erratic." Reached for comment by People, Herpin that Sweetin has returned home four times since the filing the court petition, but she won't even talk to him.

"I still have no idea what this is about," he says. "None of it makes sense."

As for his lack of employment, Cody Herpin says, "I was the stay-at-home dad, my job was taking care of Zoie," due to Sweetin's busy schedule.

Sources say Lauren Conrad was spotted hanging with her Hills crew - plus boyfriend Kyle Howard - at West Hollywood's Crown Bar over the weekend.

The reality star grabbed a table with Lauren "Lo" Bosworth, Frankie Delgado and Doug Reinhardt, who was getting cozy with Amanda Bynes. Seriously.

Ewwwwww!

Eventually, Lauren Conrad and her group moved to the dance floor, forming a circle, while Kyle Howard headed outside to chat with some guy friends.

LC'S BOY: Though seldom seen together by celebrity gossip photographers, The Hills' Lauren Conrad and My Boys' Kyle Howard are still an affectionate item.

When Howard returned and Conrad finished dancing to classic songs like Madonna's "Holiday," the duo reunited, sitting very close, smiling and talking.

Also at Crown Bar were Heroes star Hayden Panettiere, who made a brief appearance but mostly was interested in texting people on her phone, 90210 actress AnnaLynne McCord, plus rocker twins Joel and Benji Madden.

New Papa Pete Wentz isn't letting his brand new baby boy Bronx Mowgli slow him down. Having previously appeared as himself on One Tree Hill, sources say he's going back to the CW well on an upcoming episode of Privileged.

Word is, his scene in the show's 14th hour - it'll likely air as the first episode of 2009 - will be with the series' teenage stars, Ashley Newbrough and Lucy Hale.

The cast and crew of Privileged are excited to have Pete on board, and we can't blame them, as he'll provide a jolt of star power. And maybe some eyeliner too.

The show previously had Sarah Drew and Lauren Conrad guest star.

As long as Ashlee Simpson doesn't secretly follow him and simultaneously burst into song, Pete's trip will be a good thing for the underrated freshman show.

In what comes as a surprise to exactly zero fans of The Hills who are all-too familiar with her pathetic behavior and pitifully low standards in men, it looks like Audrina Patridge and Justin-Bobby Brescia are back on good terms.

Justin-Bobby was spotted bringing his weak-willed, fake-breasted girlfriend coffee and then getting into a car with her Thursday in W. Hollywood.

Audrina Patridge: Sick Body

Their reunion comes just days after Audrina suggested (for the 368th time) on her blog that she and Justin-Bobby were definitely over for good.

TOO EASY: [Insert obligatory Justin-Bobby joke here]

She said she was upset that J-Bobby wouldn't speak to her after rumors broke that he hooked up with her friend and The Hills star, Lauren Conrad.

The incident has been the focus of The Hills in recent weeks.

"As for Justin-Bobby, his inexcusable behavior has become somewhat expected at this point," Audrina Patridge lamented, before taking him back.

The 23-year-old then added that: "I just want to say that if I were looking for a serious relationship, I would definitely be looking elsewhere!"

Way to stand up for yourself and demand better, Audzo. You're an inspiration.

Remember those rumors about Michael Phelps seeing Amanda Beard naked earlier this year, when everyone was wondering who he was dating?

No? Was that just us?

Amanda Beard Naked

Well, they weren't true in case. The two Olympians were never an item. But Amanda Beard is quick to defend her friend Phelps just the same as he's gotten criticized for becoming a fixture in Las Vegas and dating Caroline Pal.

Beard admits that it's "definitely weird" to see Michael Phelps becoming a celebrity gossip mainstay, but she thinks he should be cut some slack.

Pre-Caz, Michael Phelps did some platonic palling around with Amanda Beard.

"A swimmer's life is extremely boring," Beard lamented to E! Online at yesterday evening's opening of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills.

"We swim and we're in the pool all day long. I know he trains his butt off, so I know it feels good for him to let loose and have a drink - and to have ladies underneath his arms. It's good for him."

Watch out, Caz Pal. She said ladies - plural!

Amanda Beard is confident Michael will rein it in once he starts training again: "He has a really, really, really intense coach who's very strict."

Hopefully not too strict. We need him to win eight more golds in 2012, but right now, we need him to generate gossip! He's almost as prolific at this as he is in the pool. Check out our gallery of Michael Phelps pictures and see!

O.J. Simpson was sentenced to 15 years in prison for armed robbery after a judge rejected his apology, saying, "It was much more than stupidity."

Simpson was convicted on October 3 of 12 criminal counts, including armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary after he and some buddies broke into a Nevada hotel room, attempting to recover his allegedly stolen sports memorabilia.

The 61-year-old Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall of Famer stood both shackled and stone-faced as Judge Jackie Glass read the punishment.

A rambling, five-minute plea for leniency, in which he was simultaneously apologizing for the holdup as a foolish mistake and trying to justify his actions, ended with O.J. Simpson choking back tears. And earned him zero sympathy.

The judge emphasized that it was a violent confrontation in which at least one gun was drawn, and someone could have been shot. She said the evidence was overwhelming, with the planning, confrontation and aftermath all on tape.

Hard to argue with that.

JUICE NO LONGER LOOSE! At long, long last, O.J. Simpson is headed for the long prison stint he so richly deserves and worked so tirelessly to attain.

The judge said several times that her sentence in the Vegas robbery case had absolutely nothing to do with O.J. Simpson's controversial acquittal in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Simpson was immediately led away to prison after the judge refused to permit him to go free on bail while he appeals. His co-defendant and former golfing buddy, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, also was sentenced to at least 15 years.

The Juice could be paroled after as little as nine years. Maybe Christie Prody will even be there when he gets out. True love always waits.

Speaking to celebrity gossip sources about his latest charitable efforts, New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez briefly spoke on his relationship with Madonna.

"We're friends," Rodriguez said. "We're friends - that's it."

While rumors have swirled that the slugger has been carrying on a romantic relationship and flying around the country in order to spend time with Madonna, "I can tell you this," he said, "I've never been on a plane with her."

A-Rod did not address yesterday's rumors that he's been railing Melissa Britos, however he did add that he finds celeb gossip reports about himself laughable:

"I've been to two [of her] concerts, yet I've read that I went to 20. I've also read that we were buying an apartment together. That is absolutely ridiculous and not true... You have to have a sense of humor when it comes to this stuff."

When pressed on how much time they have spent together, and whether he had ever stayed the night at Madonna's home, Alex Rodriguez commented:

"If I answered every rumor we'd be here for three weeks."

A source close to A-Rod also says that reports of Madonna and Alex Rodriguez spending the night together are "completely and unequivocably false."

Okay, so they're not house hunting. But there's surely something going on. A-Rod doesn't have female friends, only women he hasn't hit home runs with yet.

Notorious hockey motormouth and off-ice "player" Sean Avery's suspension has been officially set at six games by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

The Dallas Stars forward already served two games since he was indefinitely banned Tuesday for calling Elisha Cuthbert his sloppy seconds, in what the league called "inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game."

Complex Elisha Cuthbert

Bettman's ruling was announced on the NHL website Friday, one day after a three-hour hearing was held regarding the issue at the league's Manhattan office.

Avery used the crude but still somewhat funny expression in Calgary, Alberta, while speaking to reporters to describe his former girlfriend, Cuthbert, who is now dating another hockey player, the Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf.

He later apologized without mentioning either by name.

NOT A "SLOPPY" DRESSER: With nothing to do for his team's next six games, the Dallas Stars' Sean Avery is free to indulge in his other passion: fashion.
