The definitely exaggerated but sort-of real catfight between Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson continues - and keeps getting better!

According to OK!, Carrie’s claws came out following Jessica’s interview in which she gushes over current boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, saying, “I just told him today, ‘You’re the love of my life.’”

While Tony Romo may be pleased with Jessica Simpson and her declarations of love, Carrie Underwood has a different point of view.

“She finds Jessica Simpson's love of putting her life on display pretty desperate,” an alleged pal of the “Before He Cheats” singer relayed to OK!.

"She laughed at the People cover story. It’s exactly the same one Jess did about John Mayer — same smile, same look, except she’s a little fatter.”

As for Jessica intruding on Carrie's turf with a country CD?

“Carrie doesn’t think fans will spend money to watch Jess warble through a few badly written songs,” says Underwood's friend.

We've asked it before but we'll ask it again (and we think we can guess the obvious results): Team Jessica or Team Carrie?

Jeremy Jackson, who played David Hasselhoff's kid on Baywatch - is all grown up ... and allegedly railing porn star Sky Lopez in a new sex tape being shopped around.

One can only pray this piece of celebrity gossip proves true.

The tape is about 45 minutes in length, according to TMZ, which first reported this alleged sex tape, but so far no buyers are interested.

It does appear that the thing is real, though. Half of the fornicating duo has admitted as much. Jeremy Jackson issued the follow statement about it:

"Listen, this video was made by my best friend. Between me and a casual sex partner who just so happened to be a former porn star. I was later physically threatened if I didn't turn the DVD over to some drug addicted thugs. They said, '[Sky Lopez] wanted it back and didn't want to ever be seen as a porn star, that she had turned to God and was changing her life.' So I gave it up for HER and so they would not beat me up and 'make my life hell' as they had threatened. I was blackmailed. This private recording becoming public kinda sucks. But I thought people out there should know the truth and how far some people will go to make a quick buck."

Totally. Ray J can relate.

The lovely Rachel Bilson has emerged from quasi-obscurity to grace the cover of a pair of magazines - the New York Post's Sunday Page Six magazine and Glamour magazine's "gorgeous at any age" issue, along with Ali Larter and Diane Lane.

In addition to discussing boyfriends past (Adam Brody) and present (Hayden Christensen), the actress dishes on her new clothing line, Edie Rose:

“[Even though I can’t sew,] I came with some pictures, a couple pieces of my own clothes and some ideas in my head," says Rachel Bilson.

"It’s really simple with one pop of color, which is a lot like me.”

As far as landing on the celebrity fashion police most wanted list, which has happened to her more than once (think one-sleeved sweater):

“I think it’s kind of cool to be on the worst-dressed list," she laughs. "If people aren’t accepting, that’s really okay. Bring it on, I don’t care!”

Her next role? Rachel will be serving as maid of honor at the wedding of Josh Schwartz (creator of The OC, Gossip Girl and Chuck) and his fiancee Jill!

Their political ideologies may be poles apart, but Barack Obama and Sarah Palin have at least one thing in common: super-cute seven-year-olds!

The Democratic Senator and Republican Governor have both made political history with their respective parties' nominations in this year's election.

With the relative youth each brings to his or her presidential ticket, it's not shocking that both have young kids - including daughters born in 2001!

Tell us, who do you think is cuter, Sasha Obama or Piper Palin?

Lauren Conrad is not gonna like this one bit.

At EA Sports Freestyle's FaceBreaker Launch in Hollywood Wednesday, Heidi Montag's sister Holly Montag brought a date: Doug Reinhardt!

"Yeah, we came together," Holly said. "We are just, you know, hanging out."

If you know what they mean!

Doug Reinhardt — whose brief relationship with Lauren Conrad ended on last Monday's episode of The Hills — was the one who got dumped in this, so it remains to be seen if LC would care. Then again, it might not stop it.

Holly Montag isn't the only acquaintance of Lauren that Doug has "hung out" with since the two split. According to a trailer for upcoming episodes of The Hills, he went on a date with Spencer Pratt's sister, Stephanie Pratt.

Guy's a serious player, apparently. Hopefully Doug bats better with all these ladies than his .201 career average in the minors.

The embattled Levi Johnston cleans up nice - and while he hasn't married Bristol Palin yet, he's already got a tattoo of her name inked on his ring finger!

Their hands were never un-clasped as they watched her mom, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, deliver a standout speech at the Republican National Convention.

The Palins have been under the gun ever since she was chosen as John McCain's running mate last Friday, but Sarah responded in kind Wednesday night.

Check out Levi Johnston's "Bristol" tattoo ...

Since Sarah Palin and her family have been the subject of negative rumors and gossip ever since she became the Republican nominee for Vice President, it was interesting to watch her actually talk about politics! What a concept.

Follow the jump for Sarah Palin's speech ...

The actor announced in January that he had a brief relationship with Jillian Grace, and if proven to be the child's father, he would accept responsibility.

This is Jillian Grace. Yes. David Spade hit that.

Rumors began flying in January that Jillian Grace was pregnant with Spade's love child, but it had not been confirmed until now.

The child was born August 26. No other details, including the new celebrity baby's name, were provided at this time.

Raffaello Follieri who?

After a painful, embarrassing and public split with her con-man ex, the lovely Anne Hathaway has another love interest, Life & Style reports.

The 25-year-old Brokeback Mountain star and 37-year-old actor Josh Lucas were spotted dining at Earl's restaurant together during the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado, on Thursday, August 28.

“They definitely looked like a couple,” a witness said.

“They were really into each other, giggling and smiling and even holding hands at one point. You could almost taste their chemistry!”

We don't know if this gossip is true, but at least it makes more sense than the new pairing of Star Jones and Herb Wilson. Seriously, Herb?

Britney Spears is scheduled to kick-off the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night with "some type of performance," MTV confirms!

"MTV has long played an important role in my career," Spears, 26, said in a statement today. "How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs? I'm excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated."

Britney Spears is nominated this year for Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video of the Year for "Piece of Me." She has been nominated a whopping 17 times before but never walked away with a prestigious "Moonman."

Her camp, most notably manager Larry Rudolph, has been denying that a performance is in the works. But that may all be a smokescreen.

Think about it: A flamboyant, kick-ass, secret performance from Britney Spears one year after her epic disaster at this very awards show?

It would either be a terrific way to jump start a long-awaited comeback, or be spectacularly bad, turning her even more into a national joke.

Either way, great celebrity gossip material. Can't wait!
