Holly Madison was Hef's #1 girlfriend in the Playboy Mansion, but she says she'd be happy playing second fiddle on Kendra Wilkinson's wedding day.

"I told her a better be a bridesmaid," Madison said of her former co-star on The Girls Next Door, who it appears haven't been next door in some time.

Wilkinson's engagement to Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett was announced Thursday by her famous ex, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

A ceremony is set for June at the Playboy Mansion. One of our interns is willing to bet a month's salary ($100) that it won't happen. Anyone want that action?

Frequently-nude, one-time rivals and fellow Hugh Hefner playthings Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison have had their differences, but both are in happy places now.

"I haven't met [Hank Baskett] but I know she's crazy about him," Madison added. "He's a really great influence on her and I'm so happy for her."

Wilkinson isn't the only Hefner ex who's moved on.

Holly Madison is serious about her new boyfriend – Mindfreak star Criss Angel – that she told People matter-of-factly: "I'm in love with him."

So much for a big Britney Spears-Justin Timberlake reunion.

Both pop stars converged at the much-hyped Madonna concert last night, although they did not appear with her at the same time, much to fans' chagrin.

Spears, clad in black pants, a white tuxedo-style shirt and sexy black heels, shared the spotlight with Madonna on "Human Nature." But Madonna's one-time makeout partner split long before Timberlake appeared to duet on Madonna's "4 Minutes."

Surrounded by bodyguards, Britney Spears immediately took off following Timberlake's appearance. Here's a brief look at Britney and Madonna:

"It’s tough inside ... bloody horrible, but I’m out and that’s all that matters. It’s brilliant. I’m gonna get myself sorted. I’m gonna get my life back ... I’m gonna see my wife and take her knickers down." - Blake Fielder-Civil

With these words, Amy Winehouse's husband reentered society after a year in jail. He was released from prison on the condition that he enter rehab immediately.

Blake Fielder-Civil may have to wait a little longer for the removal of any knickers, as the Back to Black singer can't visit for at least seven days. But it's progress.

Upon his release, he was also in high spirits about world news. Giving the peace sign, he told reporters: "It’s a welcome to the free world for me and Barack Obama. I heard about the U.S. election on the car radio - it’s got to be good news!"

Free Blake Fielder-Civil!

It's great to see Blake Fielder-Civil again. Seriously, guy is pure entertainment.

Although looking well, his arms were covered in scars and what appeared to be fresh scratches. He was due out at Christmas but freed this week by Edmunds Hill Prison, Suffolk, after agreeing to rehab at the Life Works Community centre in Surrey.

Prison Service sources insisted that Blake Fielder-Civil - who had been sentenced to 27 months - was eligible for early release and was not granted special favors.

He is tagged, under curfew and banned from leaving rehab.

Oft-arrested reality TV quasi-star Jason Wahler, 21, owes a tow truck driver at least $5,000 for a 2006 fight, an L.A. jury decided this afternoon.

The former Hills fixture was charged with battery after punching Dario Stevenson in the face and hurling racial slurs at him in September 2006.

His blood alcohol level was an impressive .22 at the time.

Although Wahler's 60-day prison sentence was suspended after he checked into a rehab center in 2007, Stevenson's lawyer filed a civil suit against him.

A jury of eight women and four men concluded that Jason Wahler had committed an act of battery. His attorney argued that the L.A. native and his girlfriend at the time, model Kristen DeLuca, were too drunk to know what they were saying.

Dario Stevenson may receive punitive damages as well as the $5,000, but they will likely be drastically smaller than the $1 million he sought.

Jason Wahler has a history of drinking, violence and legal woes.

In April 2007, he served three weeks in jail on criminal trespassing, assault and underage drinking after punching a Seattle hotel security guard in the face.

In February 2008, he was banned from the USC apartment of his fiancee Katja Decker-Sadowski for using racial slurs against the complex's security guard.

He's also been arrested for drug possession and resisting a public officer during an underage drinking sweep in North Carolina. Yeah. The guy gets around.

Wahler rose to fame as the deadbeat, often-drunken beau of Lauren Conrad on Laguna Beach and then later, after she dubiously took him back on The Hills.

Conrad famously turned down a prestigious summer internship in Paris with Teen Vogue to spend the summer with him in 2005. They broke up afterwards.

Hey, there goes a bus - and Sarah Palin being thrown under it.

Less than 72 after the election, the Republican V.P. candidate is being accused - by Fox News of all sources - of not preparing for interviews, not knowing Africa was a continent, and generally "going rogue." Whatever that means.

Check out the election post-mortem below ...

Funny stuff. Regardless of who's to blame for McCain-Palin trouncing (we'd point fingers at a guy with the middle initial W), the campaign brought us so many entertaining Sarah Palin photos and videos. And for that we are forever grateful.

Something important, actually: She lent her support to Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's Disease benefit in New York City Wednesday. But we get a little distracted.

Can you blame us? It's a little hard to concentrate when she wears ... well, anything besides hooded sweatshirts. Ryan Reynolds, we hate you a little.
