Ah, Katie Holmes fashion. It's like Wal-Mart chic.

The actress takes a casual approach in trouser pants, a navy button-down shirt and sensible loafers as she left the set of Eli Stone in L.A.

That's as nice as we can put it.

We recognize that you can let yourself go a little when married, but seriously, does anyone remember when Katie Holmes used to be hot?

Amy Winehouse was out with friends last night. Why? Because that's what she does. She gets trashed. Whenever she can. But specifically this time, she may have been pre-gaming for the impending release of Blake Fielder-Civil.

It's not a guarantee. He receives his sentence today and given the charges against him, a judge could sentence him to five years or so in the slammer. However, he could also be let off with time served and probation.

Toweling Off

Blake's mom, Georgette Fielder-Civil, begged the judge to set him free - but to send him home with them and not A-Dubs, the News of the World reports:

"I'm dreading it because I don't want him to go straight back to Amy. If he goes it could be a death sentence for the two of them. Blake thinks he's going to be Amy's saviour and has every intention to try to stop the drugs. But Amy is completely unstable. Blake is a recovering drug addict and he's not strong enough to resist the temptation. If they are reunited, I know they will be back on drugs within days."

Well, that's a fair assessment.

Mrs. Fielder-Civil thinks that if he goes back to Winehouse, they will both overdose. She wants Amy to go back to rehab - and stay there - ASAP.

"She needs to prove that she loves him enough to stop. Then, once they are both drugs-free, they can have a real future together."

Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, said that Blake Fielder-Civil needs to go straight into rehab after he's released. Blame game, anyone?

Will Blake be set free or stay in jail? Will he go back to Amy or to Melissa Goldstone? We can only wait and see. We can only wait and see.

With her divorce settlement behind her, Britney Spears took time out on Saturday night to do something for the kids.

Not just Sean Preston and Jayden James, but all kids.

Britney attended Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey's fundraiser for Generation Rescue, an organization dedicated to researching autism.

"She looked great and seemed really happy," says a partygoer of the shindig at the couple's home in Brentwood.

Though she kept close to her assistant Brett and didn't speak to other guests, "She smiled and clapped during the video about autism."

"She was very into the information and watched a little bit of the dancers from Dancing with the Stars, sneaking out during one of the performances."

Also at the bash were newlyweds Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller, but the real stars were hosts McCarthy and Carrey.

"Jenny and Jim were adorable," says the guest,

"She kept saying, 'I love you honey' to him when she thanked him from the stage." Not to be outdone by the Dancing With the Stars folks, Jim took to the dance floor, even challenging another guest to a playful dance-off."

On the same morning in which we confirmed that Ben Affleck got Jennifer Garner pregnant again, we've learned that Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are expecting a baby girl on October 31 - and the excited daddy-to-be is already sewing clothes!

"Ashlee and Pete are on cloud nine," an insider told Star.

They actually conceived the baby just before Valentine's Day while they were on vacation and the baby has an initial due date of October 31.

The source says when Pete heard she might have the baby on Halloween, "he went nuts. For an emo-rocker type like Pete, that would be just too perfect!"

So true, so true. Expect Jessica Simpson to pull the goalie on Tony Romo, Bridget Moynahan style, in an attempt to steal the spotlight back from her sis.

In a new development, Britney Spears has ended her battle to win custody of her children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, from Kevin Federline.

K-Fed's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan says both he and Britney Spears reached and signed off on a settlement in their custody case last night.

Kaplan tells OK! Magazine, the leader in accurate celebrity news:

"At about 8 p.m., a final settlement in the Kevin Federline / Britney Spears custody case was signed. All parties have agreed to the following: Kevin will retain sole legal and physical custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James. Britney will continue to have visitation rights which may increase over time. The agreement will be presented to the court in the morning for approval by the commissioner."

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline in the good ol' daze.

Well, that settles that. Kaplan added that "Kevin is ecstatic and the boys are thriving." That means not getting dropped on the sidewalk.

Britney, who remains under the legal conservatorship of her father, Jamie Spears, lost custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James last October.

At the time, she had visitation rights, but they were severely restricted after January meltdowns, hospitalizations and psychiatric evaluations.

She has monitored visitation with Sean and Jayden once a week and one overnight. Recently, Lynne Spears joined her for one of those.

Shaniqua Tompkins, step off! Rapper / human flak jacket 50 Cent got what he wanted in the latest chapter of his baby mama drama - kind of.

A Long Island judge has granted him an unrestricted visit from August 3-12 with Marquise, his son with former girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins.

50 Cent Breaks In

Celebrity news sources say both parties had to submit to drug tests at the courthouse before the judge would even discuss it.

50 was clean. Shaniqua tested positive for crack cough meds.

In court, she claimed 50 is keeping her from using her Land Rover SUV by keeping guards at the site of his house - engulfed by flames in June.

She says he burned it down. He denies that's the case.

The mother (above) of Marquise, 11, Tompkins she is concerned for her son's safety after the fire at the 5,200-square-foot Dix Hills home that 50 owns and Shaniqua was living in. Tompkins publicly accused the rapper of setting the blaze.

The woman whose identity Ashley Dupre stole to (falsely) state she was 18 before being filmed by Girls Gone Wild is now suing the ex-hooker.

Joe Francis has pictures and video of Ashley Dupre nude and in "sexual situations." She was suing to block its use, but she withdrew that claim.

Ashley Dupre Playboy Cover

Back in 2003, Dupre duped Girls Gone Wild producers by using Amber Arpaio as her alias, showing a New Jersey driver's license with the name.

Problem is, Amber Arpaio is a real person.

One who is claiming - in a federal lawsuit - that her once-innocuous name has been dragged through Ashley Dupre's trail of skankiness.

Ashley Dupre was a girl gone wild - using a fake ID of Amber Arpaio.

Amber's lawyer, Robert Dunn, said his client's DL got in the hooker's hands only by accident, whatever that means. Joe Francis had no comment.

Hopefully they get the footage of Ashley Dupre deciding how to deal with these various lawsuits on her reality show, that's all we care about.
