Lauren Conrad has been rocking the glasses of late - and we're not talking about the old lady shades she loves so much - we mean real glasses!

If the beautiful star of The Hills keeps wearing these, it may spark a ton of requests for the frames. She'd be a regular Sarah Palin. Only smart.

Mya Fashion Choice

Check 'em (and her) out in the two photos below ... and we know it's hard, but try to ignore the plaid shirt on the right and focus on the specs:

What do you think: Do you like this new look from LC?

Hayden Panettiere was apparently P-I-S-S-E-D when a pair of squealing fans mistook her for Lindsay Lohan at a boutique on Melrose Ave. in Hollywood last week.

The Heroes actress was happy to have their attention, according to reports, until one of the fans called her “Lindsay” and asked when she'd be back on Ugly Betty.

Hayden's response: "Don’t EVER call me that again! You have NO idea what an insult that is!” Ouch. Hayden better watch out or she'll incur the wrath of SamRo.

Is being mistaken for LiLo really that bad? Tell us ...

Not really. It's not a happy place. Not that we are the least bit sympathetic toward Raffaello Follieri. We're just saying. He hates it in there. Sucker.

The convicted felon ex-boyfriend of Anne Hathaway says his health has deteriorated due to "unspeakably unsanitary" jail conditions he must endure.

He has requested a transfer. Good luck with that.

Raffaello Follieri once enjoyed a lavish lifestyle and dated Hathaway for years before he was arrested in June for fraud in an elaborate real estate scam.

Since he was sentenced to four and a half years in the slammer for fraud last month, he has had to contend with rotten food, foul odors and unclean toilets and as result is running a fever and has blood in his urine, his lawyer said Wednesday.

"He can't eat because the food appears to be spoiled and the toilet and shower facilities are unspeakably unsanitary," a letter from Flora Edwards reads. "There is excrement in the shower and rats roam freely in the area. The stench is intolerable."

On the flip side, if it makes the incarcerated Raffaello feel better, some of our interns have said the same things about The Hollywood Gossip's office park.

Follieri is being held in a windowless dormitory with 120 other men. Edwards requested he be moved to a different jail while awaiting transfer to a prison.

The a$$ clown pleaded guilty to netting at least $2.4 million from a scheme that exaggerated (or made up, to be more accurate) Vatican ties to mislead investors into thinking he could buy the Catholic Church's real estate at cheaper prices.

Hathaway, who starred in The Devil Wears Prada and is now dating Adam Shulman, whoever that is, said she was shocked when Follieri was arrested.

When celebrity babies and parents collide ... cuteness often ensues.

Christine Taylor, wife of Ben Stiller, gushed about how the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Ella, loves to play with Suri Cruise, as she gets to play the "older sister."

Please No More Babies

Taylor, whose hubby directed Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder, said Ella thinks having Suri Cruise, 2, follow her around is great - it makes her feel like a big girl!

"We've had a couple of play dates - they're just like any other play dates," said Christine. "[Suri's] amazing, [Tom and Katie Holmes] are terrific. When little kids get together you just let them do their thing and there's no outside elements."

And Ella just loves being the older sister.

"It's always just a great thing to see your kids connecting and you see all the different stages," Taylor added. "Ella used to always be the one looking up to the older girls and now she's kind of taken on that kind of big girl role."

In was a little over a week ago that Jesse Csincsak revealed via webcam that his world had been shattered by fiancee DeAnna Pappas.

Today, the spurned snowboarder is opening up about the breakup and discussing his dating future in a deep interview with TV Guide ...

Q: Why go on YouTube to present your side? Why not just issue a joint press release?

Jesse Csincsak: We were going to do that, but some people found out [before we wanted]. The easiest thing seemed to be to hop on the webcam and put it on YouTube. I did it because I wanted to tell the fans what happened. [DeAnna and I] have gone our separate ways. I love her and I wish her nothing but the best. I felt that that's what I portrayed on YouTube and I hope that's the way it was taken.

Q: What response are you getting?

Jesse Csincsak: Thousands of emails, 20,000 to 30,000 hits a day on my MySpace page and 5,000 emails to my MySpace page.

Q: Any ladies interested in picking up where DeAnna Pappas left off?

Jesse Csincsak: There are definitely a few ladies who have contacted me, but I'm taking things one day at a time.

Q: Did going on-camera allow you to express more how you truly felt?

Jessie Csincsak: Yeah. I figured there's no better way to tell someone how you feel than to get out there and look right into the screen and say this is what's going on. I spoke to the fans about how I was really feeling. I didn't discuss anything about what had gone on [privately]. The answer I got [from DeAnna Pappas] was that she loved me, but "wasn't in love with me." That's what she told me.

Truthfully, there is no other way to explain the promotional photo below, released to hype up Britney Spears' forthcoming album, Circus.

Without question, Britney Spears looks totally hot in the picture - in fact, she looks about as great as we have seen her in like six years.

Which is probably when Jive first took this photo, only to dig it out of the archives this week and airbrush it up real good. After cutting and pasting Jessica Simpson's weave and Heidi Montag's makeup and surgically-altered nose for good measure.

Seriously, props to the graphic designer for their awesome work here. At least the Britney Spears nude shots in the "Womanizer" video looked real.

WOW, WHO'S THAT GIRL? No, really, we're asking. Do you know?

Certain celebrity couples sizzle more than others. 

The alleged Cindy McCain affair, for instance, is not hot. Seriously. Not only is the whole story probably made up ... it's Cindy McCain. Woman is a little scary.

Rihanna Wax Figure

No one can deny the chemistry displayed by Rihanna and Chris Brown, however.

The hottest couple in music took time out from touring together in Australia for a little shopping at the Diesel store on Monday. Yummy. They are so fine ...

SOMEBODY CALL 911: We've got a seriously sizzling couple down under!
