In what comes as a surprise to exactly zero fans of The Hills who are all-too familiar with her pathetic behavior and pitifully low standards in men, it looks like Audrina Patridge and Justin-Bobby Brescia are back on good terms.

Justin-Bobby was spotted bringing his weak-willed, fake-breasted girlfriend coffee and then getting into a car with her Thursday in W. Hollywood.

Audrina Patridge: Sick Body

Their reunion comes just days after Audrina suggested (for the 368th time) on her blog that she and Justin-Bobby were definitely over for good.

TOO EASY: [Insert obligatory Justin-Bobby joke here]

She said she was upset that J-Bobby wouldn't speak to her after rumors broke that he hooked up with her friend and The Hills star, Lauren Conrad.

The incident has been the focus of The Hills in recent weeks.

"As for Justin-Bobby, his inexcusable behavior has become somewhat expected at this point," Audrina Patridge lamented, before taking him back.

The 23-year-old then added that: "I just want to say that if I were looking for a serious relationship, I would definitely be looking elsewhere!"

Way to stand up for yourself and demand better, Audzo. You're an inspiration.

Remember those rumors about Michael Phelps seeing Amanda Beard naked earlier this year, when everyone was wondering who he was dating?

No? Was that just us?

Amanda Beard Naked

Well, they weren't true in case. The two Olympians were never an item. But Amanda Beard is quick to defend her friend Phelps just the same as he's gotten criticized for becoming a fixture in Las Vegas and dating Caroline Pal.

Beard admits that it's "definitely weird" to see Michael Phelps becoming a celebrity gossip mainstay, but she thinks he should be cut some slack.

Pre-Caz, Michael Phelps did some platonic palling around with Amanda Beard.

"A swimmer's life is extremely boring," Beard lamented to E! Online at yesterday evening's opening of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills.

"We swim and we're in the pool all day long. I know he trains his butt off, so I know it feels good for him to let loose and have a drink - and to have ladies underneath his arms. It's good for him."

Watch out, Caz Pal. She said ladies - plural!

Amanda Beard is confident Michael will rein it in once he starts training again: "He has a really, really, really intense coach who's very strict."

Hopefully not too strict. We need him to win eight more golds in 2012, but right now, we need him to generate gossip! He's almost as prolific at this as he is in the pool. Check out our gallery of Michael Phelps pictures and see!

O.J. Simpson was sentenced to 15 years in prison for armed robbery after a judge rejected his apology, saying, "It was much more than stupidity."

Simpson was convicted on October 3 of 12 criminal counts, including armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary after he and some buddies broke into a Nevada hotel room, attempting to recover his allegedly stolen sports memorabilia.

The 61-year-old Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall of Famer stood both shackled and stone-faced as Judge Jackie Glass read the punishment.

A rambling, five-minute plea for leniency, in which he was simultaneously apologizing for the holdup as a foolish mistake and trying to justify his actions, ended with O.J. Simpson choking back tears. And earned him zero sympathy.

The judge emphasized that it was a violent confrontation in which at least one gun was drawn, and someone could have been shot. She said the evidence was overwhelming, with the planning, confrontation and aftermath all on tape.

Hard to argue with that.

JUICE NO LONGER LOOSE! At long, long last, O.J. Simpson is headed for the long prison stint he so richly deserves and worked so tirelessly to attain.

The judge said several times that her sentence in the Vegas robbery case had absolutely nothing to do with O.J. Simpson's controversial acquittal in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Simpson was immediately led away to prison after the judge refused to permit him to go free on bail while he appeals. His co-defendant and former golfing buddy, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, also was sentenced to at least 15 years.

The Juice could be paroled after as little as nine years. Maybe Christie Prody will even be there when he gets out. True love always waits.

Speaking to celebrity gossip sources about his latest charitable efforts, New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez briefly spoke on his relationship with Madonna.

"We're friends," Rodriguez said. "We're friends - that's it."

While rumors have swirled that the slugger has been carrying on a romantic relationship and flying around the country in order to spend time with Madonna, "I can tell you this," he said, "I've never been on a plane with her."

A-Rod did not address yesterday's rumors that he's been railing Melissa Britos, however he did add that he finds celeb gossip reports about himself laughable:

"I've been to two [of her] concerts, yet I've read that I went to 20. I've also read that we were buying an apartment together. That is absolutely ridiculous and not true... You have to have a sense of humor when it comes to this stuff."

When pressed on how much time they have spent together, and whether he had ever stayed the night at Madonna's home, Alex Rodriguez commented:

"If I answered every rumor we'd be here for three weeks."

A source close to A-Rod also says that reports of Madonna and Alex Rodriguez spending the night together are "completely and unequivocably false."

Okay, so they're not house hunting. But there's surely something going on. A-Rod doesn't have female friends, only women he hasn't hit home runs with yet.

Notorious hockey motormouth and off-ice "player" Sean Avery's suspension has been officially set at six games by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

The Dallas Stars forward already served two games since he was indefinitely banned Tuesday for calling Elisha Cuthbert his sloppy seconds, in what the league called "inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game."

Complex Elisha Cuthbert

Bettman's ruling was announced on the NHL website Friday, one day after a three-hour hearing was held regarding the issue at the league's Manhattan office.

Avery used the crude but still somewhat funny expression in Calgary, Alberta, while speaking to reporters to describe his former girlfriend, Cuthbert, who is now dating another hockey player, the Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf.

He later apologized without mentioning either by name.

NOT A "SLOPPY" DRESSER: With nothing to do for his team's next six games, the Dallas Stars' Sean Avery is free to indulge in his other passion: fashion.

TomKat, a.k.a. Tom Cruise and his most treasured possession wife, Katie Holmes, are featured on two dueling covers of the New York Times Style Magazine.

Kate, as he calls her, has been under the scrutiny of the spotlight alongside her husband ever since she became part of one of the world's most famous couples. Yet, the actress insists that the public perception of her is all wrong.

"There's a misperception about me that I became this wallflower, a woman who doesn't have any control of her life," she says. "And that's pretty wrong. From the beginning, I have made choices in my life that have been very strong."

The mother of Suri Cruise says she blocks out the world and the celebrity gossip buzz surrounding her: "I have too much to do. I can't pay attention to all that noise."

Katie Holmes also gushed about her storybook romance with Tom Cruise.

"When I met Tom I was completely in love and, yes, I admired him growing up - he's Tom Cruise!" she said. "When I met him, he was so warm and I thought, Wow! You can be a superstar and a human being. He made me feel amazing."

Interviewed separately, Cruise said, "I knew I wanted to marry Kate when I met her. After our first date, I was sure. At one point, I thought she was going to ask me to marry her and I changed the subject. I wanted to ask her."

Between William Balfour and now the Scott Ruffalo shooting, it's been an amazing and tragic couple of weeks in terms of violent crime in the celeb gossip world.

Beverly Hills police announced Thursday that two "persons of interest" have been ID'd in their investigation into the shooting of Mark Ruffalo's younger brother, 39-year-old Scott Ruffalo - what officials now call an attempted murder.

In a press release issued by police department spokesman Lt. Tony Lee, authorities say that they're looking to question a man by the name of Brian Scofield and a woman named Shaha Mishaal Adham in connection with the shooting.

No further information regarding the suspects' relationship to Scott Ruffalo, seen here with brother Mark and Scott's wife Luzelene, has been released at this time.

A Beverly Hills Fire Department crew responded at about 1:10 a.m. Monday to a report of a man who had fallen in the 400 block of N. Palm Drive in Beverly Hills.

Upon arrival, they found Ruffalo had sustained a head injury - soon discovered to be a gunshot to the head. He is in critical condition and fighting for his life.

Beverly Hills police are still looking to track down Brian Scofield and Shaha Mishaal Adham. Follow the jump for mug shots of the two persons of interest ...
