It's a slow celebrity news week, apparently.

Former Full House star Candace Cameron explains, in the newest issue of Us Weekly, how she went from a "chubby" child star (her words) to a hot mom of three!

The actress, 32, lost 22 pounds without typical Hollywood help: trainers, surgery or a special diet prepared by a chef. Those perks, she says, are "not realistic" for most individuals, and credits - gasp - diet and exercise for her change.

Cameron - who currently weighs 110 pounds, and is "5'2" - says she began taking heat from others, and herself, to lose weight as a teenager on Full House.

No word on whether Kimmie Gibbler peer pressured her.

"Then when I was 16, I filmed an episode of Full House where my family goes to Disney World. I remember putting on baggy overalls just to hide my stomach," she says. "When I watched it, I was pretty disappointed and bummed out."

Candace's diet roller coaster continued after after marrying Russian-born, former NHL player Valeri Bure in 1996 (unfortunately, her co-star Jodie Sweetin and her husband, Cody Herpin, could not achieve such long-lasting marital bliss).

John Mayer has a message for the celebrity gossip world - particularly websites that think they're all that: You can't hang with the best in the biz.

"Snarky gossip bloggers, take heed," Mayer writes on his blog, "You will never have a better knack for cutting people down than Don Rickles does."

In reference to the legendary comc who insults everyone, including members of his audiences, Mayer continues, "You owe much of your success – both pecuniary and otherwise – to the groundwork laid by [Don Rickles]."

Legendary comedian Don Rickles and his #1 fan.

After watching Rickles, 82, perform at Connecticut's Foxwoods Casino, Mayer says, "He made Perez Hilton look like a sycophant. Nobody - and I mean nobody - has what it takes to point out a morbidly obese man in the front row and call him out on it in song" – noting that the man himself laughed hysterically at the bit.

The lesson learned, says the singer-songwriter: "If you're going to make someone laugh at the absurd, tell some truth with it; if you're going to make someone cry, give them a silver lining to look to; and if you're going to insult someone, as the legendary Don Rickles has for the last 55 years, end it with a wink and a smile."

That's good advice. We'll keep those tips in mind, John. Do you own stock in Don Rickles or something? Go write some lame songs, you douchebag. ;-) :-)

If there's one thing Lauren Conrad does, it's go to clubs in and around L.A.

But there are two things Lauren Conrad does, they would be wear trendy fashion (even when a little casual) while going to said clubs. We heart her so.

The Hills star was seen leaving the area's new hot spot, Deluxe nightclub, in Hollywood last night, wearing a black and yellow striped minidress. Peep it:

Leaving hot new club Deluxe in a cute striped mini-dress, Lauren Conrad stopped to sign a picture of Lauren Conrad for a lucky admirer of Lauren Conrad.

A burgeoning designer, The Hills star has always been one who can pull off casual, yet trendy looks such as this. Click to enlarge more Lauren Conrad pictures below ...

While the possible cousin she used to sponge off hard, Britney Spears, readied for a trip to Japan, Alli Sims was spotted leaving hot spot Deluxe in Hollywood and shocked onlookers (or at least The Hollywood Gossip) by wearing a fur coat.

Come on, PETA. You loons are slacking. Where is some whack job with a bucket of red paint when you need one? Girl is practically begging for an ambush - and it's Alli Sims! It's not like she's got the cash to pay a team of lawyers to sue you.

Fur-Get About It!

Hopefully next time Alli won't be so brazen - or PETA will step up to the plate if she is. We wanna see another awesome confrontation, Lindsay Lohan flour attack style!

Here's more photos of Alli Sims exiting the club if anyone cares ...

Continuing her whirlwind publicity tour for Circus, Britney Spears was seen readying for a flight to Japan via LAX airport in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Dressed in her finest airport chic fashion, the 27-year-old pop star rolled to the first class lounge with her father, Jamie Spears, and assistant Brett.

This will be Spears' first visit to Japan in, like, more than five years. The recovering singer is scheduled to appear on Fuji TV’s music program HEYx3.

Britney said in a statement regarding her much-anticipated trip, “The Japanese are just so nice, I love them. I wanna go shopping while I’m there too.”

That about sums it up. Click to enlarge more Britney Spears photos below ...

Having risen to quasi-fame on MTV's The Hills, Whitney Port is trading up to her own, NYC-based reality show, The City. She looks gorgeous on the cover of Page Six Magazine, which (perhaps prematurely) anoints her the new Carrie Bradshaw.

Sex and the City comparisons aside, it's great to be Whitney Port these days. Here's what one of The Hollywood Gossip's favorite celebs had to say about ...

... how she happened to be cast on The Hills: “I had an interview [for an internship at Teen Vogue] and then got a phone call from MTV a couple of days later. They were like, ‘We’re shooting this documentary-style TV show about girls growing up in L.A. and the fashion industry, blah blah blah’ and I was like, ‘OK that’s interesting, whatever.’ And the next thing I knew they wanted to cast me on the show. But I was really just trying to get the job at Teen Vogue!

... keeping in touch with her friends from SoCal: "Lauren Conrad and I talk. If anybody knows what I’m going through right now it’s her.”

... guys in New York City vs. guys in L.A.: “I was recently in L.A., and I couldn’t help but think, ‘Oh my gosh, everyone is kind of the exact same here.’ You have all these guys in the entertainment industry who are just trying to be smooth and super-cool. The guys [in New York] are [still] trying to be cool - guys do that everywhere - but they’re more confident and they know what they want.”

... handling celeb gossip media and critics: “I’ve never really noticed anyone giving me a hard time. Maybe they are and I’m just naïve. But I figure that if I just stay true to myself and I am the Whitney that I’ve always been, people will look at me not as Whitney from the show, but as a human being.”

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 ...
