Not that you can really blame the man if he gets to date her, but rumors are surfacing that Rihanna goes to considerable lengths to keep Chris Brown in line.

The "Disturbia" singer gave CB, who she may or may not have gotten engaged to recently, a checklist of what he can and can’t do while on tour in Europe.

Atop of the list are tight restrictions on when and where he can hang out with other girls. She also doesn’t want to see pics of him dancing with girls in a club.

She knows how far fans go to get his attention.

Rihanna has banned female members of his entourage from being alone with him in his room and said no girls can be there past midnight,” says a source.

Future Mr. & Mrs. Chris Brown

To top it all off, Rihanna flew half way around the world to check on Chris Brown over the holiday season. Moreover, has decided to come back to the UK again in time for his gig at The O2 on Sunday. Hey, better safe than sorry.

A friend told a London paper: “The reason for her trip to the UK was to keep an eye on Chris ... she changed her schedule to see him on the set of his new video. It’s a track called Freeze with rapper T-Pain, who likes the ladies."

"Rihanna knew there would be plenty of girls in the music video, so asked a member of her entourage to keep an eye on the dancers.”

Wow. When you've resorted to posting bikini photos of yourself on your own website in a shameless bid to stay relevant, the following things are true:

  • You have too much free time, and may want to consider filling it with some more acting roles, or at least eating the occasional sandwich.
  • Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, whose nauseating, staged pics sell for modest sums 2-3 times a week, are totally bigger stars than you.
  • You are trying to show Cisco Adler what he's missing.

Okay, so the third one is a guess, but there's no disputing the first two.

Mischa Barton, Boyfriend

Mischa Barton is really scraping the bottom of the barrel, but hey, we'll bite and give her what she craves - a little attention. Here's a sort of hot pic:

Speaking publicly for the first time since her December 18 arrest on charges of dealing OxyContin, Sherry Johnston says she got hooked on the prescription drug after a hysterectomy eight years ago, which led to seven more surgeries.

"I was in pain, and I'm still in pain," she tells People.

Johnston, 42, pleaded not guilty at her arraignment in Palmer, Alaska.

"I have been trying for years to deal with the pain," the mother of Bristol Palin's baby daddy Levi Johnston says. "I still have a medical pump inside me. I would rather not comment any more but it's not everything that they're saying."

Sherry Johnston said she has been under a doctor's care and that she was prescribed OxyContin as a painkiller. Still, the hysterectomy and the subsequent complications forced her to give up her career as a hairstylist.

No comment on whether or not she deals drugs out of her house, which has been alleged after authorities had a couple of her customers wear wires.

Regardless, Sherry's spirits have been lifted by the birth of Levi and Bristol's son, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, who was born on December 27.

When she saw the baby the day he was born, "I started bawling," the new grandmother says. "I think he looks just like Levi... I'm very excited."

Levi Johnston, 18, was recently forced to quit his job in an electrical apprenticeship program in Alaska's North Slope oil fields after a local newspaper columnist raised questions about whether he was eligible to participate.

Johnston says her son and Bristol Palin, also 18, plan to wed this summer.

Tom Cruise, a close family friend of John Travolta and Kelly Preston, is speaking out about the tragic death of their 16-year-old son Jett Travolta, who died January 2.

"I remember Jett when he was born," Cruise said on The View. "I saw him when he was just a few months old. John just adored him, and both of his children, and Kelly."

Jett died on January 2 after suffering a seizure while vacationing with his family in the Bahamas. A private memorial service in Ocala, Fla. was scheduled for Thursday.

"I just don't have the words for it," says Cruise, who was there to discuss Valkyrie, but was clearly choked up talking about the Travoltas. "It's just horrific. Here you have a man, both of them doting parents, they're wonderful people and…"

As for some of the speculation that the Travoltas did not seek medical help for Jett, who had a history of seizures, because of Scientology beliefs, Tom Cruise, also a Scientologist, says the religion does not discourage medical attention.

"That's just not true," he says. "They say, 'Get your physical, get your medication, get your physical illnesses handled.' It's actually the exact opposite."

With The Hills on hiatus until Season Five later this year (and The City taking center stage on MTV in the meantime), roommates / BFFs Lauren Conrad and Lo Bosworth stepped out for a bite to eat Wednesday in Beverly Hills.

Here's the former Laguna Beach tandem looking fashionable as always ...

No word on whether Lo was in the process of making passive-aggressive comments to LC about Audrina Patridge at the time this celebrity photo was taken.

At least that's what we think OK! is going for with the headline below, WHAT PRICE FAME? Not sure what that's supposed to mean exactly, but we assume the point is that Britney Spears' return to superstardom came at a price.

And a heavy price at that.

She has a #1 album in Circus, boasts three hot singles in the title track, "Womanizer" and "If U Seek Amy," and is planning a world tour starting March 3.

But it's no secret that, as she starts to climb back to the top, there are sacrifices she's had to make - namely little Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2.

OK! claims the singer paid an the extraordinary price for her comeback, voluntarily giving up the fight to regain custody of her boys in exchange for fame.

Last fall, as her upcoming concert tour was being organized, Britney's camp discovered that due to her history, they could not purchase insurance for her tour unless she was still under the conservatorship of her father Jamie Spears.

Until that point, the plan was for the conservatorship to be lifted December 31, at which point Brit would file for custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James.

But an insider tells OK!, "The insurance situation changed everything."

Therefore, on October 28, the singer agreed to accept her father as her conservator - a decision which meant she would still legally be considered a child and no judge would give her custody of her kids, nor would K-Fed allow it.

"Whether it was her decision or whether she was pressured into it, Britney's deal with the devil put the tour ahead of the kids," says an insider.

If that's true, it's pretty sad (and we blame Larry Rudolph). Those photos from brother Bryan's wedding sure were cute, but it looks like Sean and Jayden are just occasional props, and never real priorities, for this star.

Sorry, Adam Shulman.

No offense. But when your girlfriend's previous beau was the ultimate loser - con-man Raffaello Follieri - anyone's gonna look great by comparison.

"At this point I would just like him to be law abiding," Anne Hathaway joked about her dating criteria to Ellen DeGeneres, who offered to help out.

"I'm actually really good at setting people up," DeGeneres told the gorgeous Bride Wars star. "If you need some one, I will find you a boyfriend."

Hathaway says her breakup with Follieri - which happened right before his arrest and sentence - taught her "to have a sense of humor about everything."

"I'm sobbing, and I look up and I start laughing and said, 'This is going to make a great opening monologue on SNL.' So then, two weeks later I got the call that I was going to be on the show. I was like, 'You know what, I'm going to get through it. I'm going to laugh first and nobody is going to be able to laugh at me, and eventually it will just be something that happened to me' and now it is. I'm so thrilled."

Says DeGeneres: "That’s what you should get from any experience - something you learn from it, grow and appreciate it and never regret it."

"And, never do it again!" adds Hathaway.

Amen. Click to enlarge more photos of the Bride Wars actress at the 20th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala:

His season over, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was seen lugging some serious baggage (Jessica Simpson), while Samsonite herself was carrying some of her own (pray for Daisy) in Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday afternoon.

Samsonite clearly reveled in the photo op, while Romo was apathetic and poor, defenseless Daisy, well, she's just praying someone will notice her plight ...

Amy Winehouse continued her seemingly endless "vacation" in St. Lucia with new love interest Josh Bowman Wednesday, frolicking on the beach and whatnot.

The troubled singer, 25, was first pictured on the arm of a handsome mystery man a few days ago, before he was ID'd as a former rugby player from England.

Some reports are calling Winehouse's friendship with Josh Bowman, who has supposedly quit rugby to pursue a career in acting, as a "holiday romance."

Call it what you want, here they are again yesterday ...

Josh Bowman Prepares

As Josh Bowman waits, Amy Winehouse prepares to rid herself of her pesky shorts.

What does he see in her? How long will this romance last? Will Blake Fielder-Civil fashion a crude shank in prison and stab Josh Bowman upon his release? Stay tuned.

Click to enlarge more pictures of Amy and Josh on the beach below. These are kinda weak compared to some of the topless pics from the other day, but the bonus shot of A-Dubs writhing around on a bar and showing off her cleavage is great...
