In just 24 short years on this planet, Ashlee Simpson has had her father purchase a singing career for her, had some bad plastic surgery, become a celebrity gossip mainstay, then gotten knocked up by and hitched to Pete Wentz. Not a bad life!

Here's a little photo tribute to Ashlee on her birthday today. Click to enlarge ...

Ashlee and Pete Wentz

She's not the only star turning another year wiser (she can only go up) today. Oh no. Other celebrity birthdays include someone even more worthless, Brandon Davis (a.k.a. Greasy Bear), as well as the coolest chick alive, Gwen Stefani! Pics below ...

We're kidding, obviously. Kid Rock is not running for office, nor did Sarah Palin mention him at any point. But you could make a case for interpreting this gem of a quote, from her interview with conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt, that way.

Asked why her candidacy has triggered some hostility, Sarah Palin said:

"I think they’re just not used to someone coming in from the outside saying you know what? It's time that normal Joe Six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency. I think that that’s kind of taken some people off guard."

How that's supposed to be a selling point for her candidancy, we can't say. That's a (potentially endless) discussion for another time.

But If the man below is not Joe Six Pack, we don't know who is:

JOE SIX PACK: If John McCain decides to dump Sarah Palin after tonight's Vice Presidential debate, we recommend Kid Rock for the #2 spot on the GOP ticket.

We knew Audrina Patridge moved out of the home owned by Lauren Conrad. What we just learned is that she bought a three-bedroom Hollywood Hills home of her own.

"It's amazing. I love it. So beautiful," the aspiring actress said Saturday at the MGM Grand Hotel pool in Las Vegas. "I love the house. I saw it, and I fell in love with it."

Australian Audrina

The Spanish-style pad's price tag: $1.2 million.

Featuring 2,100 square feet of living space, her new house also comes complete with city views, a wine refrigerator, outdoor barbeque and fountains, Us Weekly says.

As for moving out of Lauren Conrad's place?

"Nothing has changed," Audrina Patridge said of her friendships with LC and her other former roommate, Lo Bosworth, with whom she frequently clashed.

Conrad echoed that sentiment, recently stating that Patridge's moving out happened "under friendly terms... it was time for Audrina to take the next step."

Next up for Audrina Patridge?

"I'm still in L.A. filming Season Four of The Hills until December, and I’m going to Pittsburgh to film [my new movie] Sorority Row," she said.

Remember Alli Sims?

Britney Spears' cousin was totally gonna start her own music career, earned via her experience of partying with Britney Spears at clubs of course.

Family Friendly Show

We all know how that plan played out.

Britney Spears spiraled into oblivion, culminating in a pair of meltdowns and hospitalizations last winter. Since then, her hangers-on have been cut off.

Alli Sims told the New York Post she’s banned from Britney’s life.

“I have no idea when I’ll see her again. I miss her every day,” Sims lamented. "When [Britney's] dad gained control, he put some rules down... it's just best for her to not communicate with a lot of people. My main concern is her being OK."

TRANSLATION: Britney, I need a new Chanel purse! Call me, girl!

Alli Sims, who at least tried to release her debut album earlier this year, says she is currently living in Nashville writing and recording music.

Meanwhile, her former meal ticket was in N.Y., looking like a bona fide hottie and presenting a school with $10,000 for a music program.

Fun with the John McCain-Sarah Palin ticket continues for David Letterman.

The Chicago Sun-Times is all over rumors surrounding star NFL quarterbacks and their favorite "receivers" (celebrity girlfriends) this week.

Yesterday, we reported that Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo were shopping for rings, thus eliminating any chance he has of winning on on the field.

Tom, Gisele and a Son

Today, it's Giselle Bundchen and Tom Brady, the New England Patriots QB who is injured and out for the year, who are the subject of gossip.

Reports say they may be walking down the aisle soon! A wedding could be in the future - just don't expect a long, drawn-out or public process.

A close friend of Giselle's tells the Sun-Times, ”I don't think they will even bother getting engaged — and will just slip off and marry quietly."

"I think that's sooner rather than later.”

He's certainly got the free time. While we're sure Tom Brady misses being on the field on Sunday, at least he gets to go through workouts with a certain tight end, if you know what we're talking about. We're talking about Gisele Bundchen nude.

Days after reports surfaced that a Britney Spears sex tape with Adnan Ghalib is making the rounds - shopped by Adnan himself - the former celebrity news photographer is now telling one magazine that the whole thing is a lie.

"There is no sex tape," Adnan told Star, "I've never claimed there is one."

A Britney Spears Nipple Slip

The quotes and claims attributed to him are not real, says Adnan Ghalib.

"I don't know where these quotes I'm supposed to have said have come from. What I do know is they certainly did not come from me and are completely false. I am extremely upset, distressed and taking legal action. This story has caused a lot of hurt to my family and people close to me. There is no sex tape. That is the end of the matter."

The story quoted Adnan talking about his intention to sell a two-hour sex tape he made with Britney in Mexico last January - if the price was right.

The tape was said to show Britney Spears nude - with nothing but that crazy pink wig on of course - writhing around on a bed and straddling Adnan.

Adnan and Britney began a whirlwind romance late in late 2007 and early 2008 during her public meltdown. But they were hardly seen together after.

With her career deteriorating a little more each day, it's no surprise that Jessica Simpson has her sights set on Plan B: Marrying a really rich guy.

Today's Chicago-Sun Times reports that wedding bells may not be far off for Simpson and her beau, hunky Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo:

J-Simps Picture

"One of my best Dallas snoops just happened to be in the original Neiman Marcus in Big D, shortly after Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo were in the store checking out big sparklers - the kind women wear on their left-hand ring finger."

"I'm hearing the couple are talking about a winter wedding. Dallas fans can relax. The happy twosome are said to be planning to tie the knot after the end of the season, including the Super Bowl - should the Cowboys make it to the big game."

Buy one ring, kiss your chance at another goodbye. So poetic. This is tremendous news for fans of any NFL team but Dallas. Less good news for fans of not stabbing yourself? Jessica singing "Angels" on Dancing with the Stars last night.

Holy crap, she is abysmally awful. This clip must be heard to be believed, although we recommend heavy tranquilizers first. We're really impressed at Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Cheryl Burke for not bursting out laughing. Talk about pros ...

You gotta hand it to Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

On The View today, the resident conservative hot mess at least gave it the ol' college try, attempting to explain why Sarah Palin is qualified to be U.S. President.

Unfortunately, that's more than an ambitious task, it's impossible, as the clip below shows. Too bad she couldn't pull a Tina Fey and ask for a lifeline at the end.
