In what has to be the biggest piece of stunt casting since How I Met Your Mother snagged Britney Spears, Entertainment Weekly reports that Katie Holmes will be returning to the small screen this fall on ABC's Eli Stone.

The guest starring role, which should give a nice boost to the critically adored but marginally-rated series, marks a reunion between Holmes and her former Dawson's Creek boss, Eli Stone executive producer Greg Berlanti.

Katie Holmes and her K-Mart chic fashion sense are coming back to TV!

A spokesperson for the show declined to comment, but Michael Ausiello reports that the proud mother of Suri Cruise will be in one episode.

After shooting later this month, Mrs. Tom Cruise will head to New York, where she'll be making her Broadway debut in All My Sons.

For Katie's next guest starring turn, we recommend a recurring role on the new 90210. Gotta go back to her cheesy WB/CW roots!

The good folks at OK! Magazine keep releasing more photos from their shoot with Maddie Briann Aldridge (and her parents Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge). Man, it's like they are determined to upstage Honor Marie Warren!

One interesting new fact we just learned: Maddie's middle name, Briann, is an ode to Casey's cousin Brian, who died in a car accident a week before her birth, and Jamie Lynn Spears' and Britney Spears' older brother, Bryan Spears.

As for her first name, Casey Aldridge gets all the credit. "Maddie is a name that Casey thought of, and I really liked it," Jamie Lynn Spears says.

Here are some cute shots of unwed teenage mom and baby:

When it rains, it pours for The Hills' Lauren Conrad.

The aspiring clothing designer has been taking some heat for alleged argumentative behavior argument a recent event, and now, a trendy West Hollywood boutique has announced it is dropping LC's clothing line.

Kitson is jettisoning Lauren Conrad fashion due to of dwindling interest.

"Sales were lackluster. Initially it was great," Kitson's store owner Fraser Ross said, adding that he tried to get the MTV starlet to do a personal appearance in the store, but her people could never find the time.

"They need to realize it’s no different than selling your album, your TV shows, your movies," Ross said. "You have to keep promoting it."

Lauren Conrad's foray into celebrity fashion hit a snag this week.

Ross also confirmed that the store will no longer carry Victoria Beckham's dVb menswear line because of dwindling demand.

Guess no one wants to look like an anorexic robot with giant boobs.

The lovely Lauren Conrad attended Animal Fair Media’s 2008 “Paws For Style” at Arena on Tuesday in New York. Animal Fair is a lifestyle magazine and website created for animal lovers in support of fairness to animals.

Sounds like a nice cause. Here's a nice girl promoting it ...

We admit we are a little envious of both parties involved in this celebrity photo. The dog for being pressed up against Lauren Conrad, and LC because our staff members really want a dog at The Hollywood Gossip offices.

These are indeed lean economic times.

Even The Hills star Lauren "Lo" Bosworth, who graduated with an art history degree from UCLA in June, is having trouble getting a job nowadays.

Off to Party

Not that unemployment doesn't have its perks.

"I have just been hanging out by the pool," she told Us Weekly at the Intermix VH1 Rock Honors Exclusive VIP Party in Los Angeles.

"I would love to get my own style show or something like that," Lo said when asked what she'd like to be doing ... at some point.

In addition to scoring a degree at UCLA, Lauren Bosworth said she also found a guy, whom she declined to name. Unlike Doug Reinhardt, Lo's man won't be appearing on the new season of The Hills when it debuts in August.

"Being on the show conflicts with his job," Lo said. "He works in finance."

Anyone have a clue who Lo's new man is? If so, help us out!

Hayden Panettiere is gearing up to release her first album.

The not-unattractive Heroes star played her first single, "Wake Up Call," on Ryan Seacrest's KISS-FM radio show Tuesday afternoon – and opened up about the "very different, very diverse" songs comprising the album.

"They're a little bit eclectic," Panettiere said. The actress described the experience of hearing her music on the radio as "scary" and "terrifying."

Hayden, the subject of engagement rumors with boyfriend Milo Ventimiglia, put a lot of effort into the songs on her debut disc.

In fact, the project has been four years in the making.

"[The music] changed so much over the years," she says, "just because my life experiences and who I am as a person is obviously reflected in the music."

SamRo and LiLo are quite happy together. But what we really want to know, regarding the 30-year-old Brit, is this: Would you go there?

50 Cent's baby mama Shaniqua Tompkins wants 50's lawyer off their case - because, according to her, that guy knows her legal strategy!

According to TMZ, Shaniqua has huddled with 50 Cent's lawyer, Brett Kimmel, in the past - before the custody battle over their son, Marquise, began.

Today, her lawyer's going to ask a Manhattan judge to boot Kimmel as 50's counsel because she says there's a clear conflict of interest.

Obviously, 50 Cent disagrees. Hopefully he won't cap Shaniqua, or burn down his own house in an attempt to kill her, as she alleges he once did.

Tompkins also will try and block Mr. Cent from getting insurance money from the house she says he set fire to. 50 has adamantly denied this ever happened.

In fact, Shaniqua Tompkins got served with a $20 million defamation suit by the rapper also known as Curtis Jackson in response. Take that, shawwwty.

Brent Kimmel couldn't be reached for comment. In other Kimmel news, Jimmy broke up with girlfriend Sarah Silverman yesterday. Quite sad.
