Yesterday's celebrity birthday was followed by an engagement, as supermodel Adriana Lima was proposed to by fair-to-poor NBA player Marko Jaric!

We don't suspect today's birthday girls - The Olsen Twins! - to get engaged to any sports stars in the next 24 hours, although they have dated some.

Anyway. Happy birthday to the former child stars and current train wrecks, who are 22 today. Do us a favor and eat something for a change!

Here's a little gallery of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen pictures our staff put together in celebration of their special day. Click to enlarge them!

As we reported yesterday, Lynne Spears - mom of Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears - is coming out with a new book about raising train wrecks parenting.

This shameless attempt to cash in would give even Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag pause. We can only imagine the wisdom she'll dispense.

Here are some excerpts The Hollywood Gossip would love to read ...

  • A key to raising a famous daughter is to replace breast milk with coffee. The instant addiction to caffeine will result in future, 1 am Starbucks runs that can be caught by paparazzi. Cha. Ching.
  • When Britney signed with Jive Records, I rewarded myself for all my hard work by signing the lease on a Range Rover.
  • Note to mothers whose untalented, teen daughters can only make news by getting pregnant: a thumb tack to a condom works every time!

  • I don't understand why people struggle coming up with baby names. You have a name, right? Your husband has a name? Voila!
  • Justin Timberlake seemed more interested in a legitimate music career than getting wasted ay Hyde every night. Naturally, he had to go.
  • Early on, I learned that Britney and Jamie Lynn will say okay to anything if you push them hard enough... and that OK! will pay for the story.

"I don't think everything is OK," she told several celeb news sources at the launch party at Hollywood's S Bar on Wednesday.

Stephanie Pratt said Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge put their differences aside and went clubbing at West Hollywood's Crown Bar Wednesday.

On the the recent season finale of The Hills, Audrina Patridge told Lauren Conrad (above) that Lauren Bosworth had come between their friendship.

We've highlighted some great celebrity hairstyles this week, from Lauren Conrad to Kim Kardashian. In the case of Hilary Duff, however, we're focused not only on the style, but on the starlet's recent color change as well!

The singer/actress/girlfriend of Mike Comrie lightened up her usual caramel color to more of a softer, lighter blonde this week. Check out the photo comparison below ...

We know how most readers feel about Kim Kardashian nude. (Calm down, fellas, we're working on more photos of this vixen in the buff.)

But let's try to focus on a different body part of this socialite for a moment: her hair.

Sometimes, she wears it straight; other times, she rocks the curls. Take a look at the latter look below and send us your thoughts on it:

Kim and Booty

This is a hairy situation for Kim Kardashian. Do the curls make you wanna hurl?

Okay, they have been for awhile now, but we never told you about it when it happened, so in case you didn't know, it's new to you!

Andrew Firestone, the former star of The Bachelor, revealed that he'll be marrying Ivana Bozilovic, a model/actress, next month.

She's not the woman he met on The Bachelor, of course. That was Jen Schefft. They broke up. You know how it goes with the show.

"Sometimes you get hurt before you actually make it right," the heir to the Firestone tire fortune gushed about Ivana Bozilovic, who he's been with for over two years.

"She makes me a better person. Never before have I been so gushy."

Andrew Firestone, 32, says he was "crushed" when his short-lived 2003 engagement to Bachelor finalist Schefft went up in flames.

"I was going above and beyond to make it work," he said. "Everybody assumed it was my fault â€" that wasn't the case at all."

Congrats to Ivana Bozilovic and Andrew Firestone. Here's hoping DeAnna Pappas can find the love she's looking for, too.

One of the planet's most beautiful celebrities, Brazilian Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima, celebrates her birthday on this 12th of June. She is 27.

While we're disappointed she's chosen to date a mediocre NBA player (we hate you, Marko Jaric) and not us, we nonetheless wish her all the best!

Here's a little (sexy) gallery of Adriana Lima pictures our staff writers put together to commemorate her special day. Click to enlarge them!

Are you the slightest bit surprised by this headline?

You shouldn't be. The Hills' gruesome twosome has reportedly been talking to the network that made them famous about their upcoming nuptials.

Heidi Bends Over

As in a live telecast of their upcoming nuptials.

Heidi Montag reportedly told MTV programming and development honcho Tony DiSanto that they're ready to tie the knot in front of the cameras.

Surprise, surprise: DiSanto is said to be all for it!

Would you watch Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding? You can admit it.

According to Spencer Pratt, their dream is a small wedding on Sir Richard Branson's private island in the Virgin Islands, with catering by Wolfgang Puck, designer watches for all guests and a live performance by U2.

Even master manipulators like Spencer and Heidi may be aiming too high with those requests, but we're sure MTV can figure out something.

Our personal suggestion is for Brody Jenner and Frankie Delgado to become ordained ministers online, then officiate the ceremony.

Lynne Spears, mother of Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears, has always been known for her deep desire to cash in commitment to strong parenting.

Her memoir - yes, her f*%king memoir - which was delayed last winter amid Jamie Lynn getting knocked up at 16, will be now released this fall.

Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World is the title. We're serious. Sorry, we're a little thrown off by this.

The book will chronicle Lynne Spears' pimping out raising of Britney, 26, and Jamie Lynn, 17, and how she ruined their lives for the sake of money groomed them into stars while coming from small-town Louisiana.

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

"When Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant, the book was put on hold," a representative for Spears' publisher, Thomas Nelson Inc., said.

"But Lynne never stopped working on it because she wants to express her love for CA$H her children and tell their stories through her eyes."

"[It] will not be a parenting book," the rep said of the book, which was originally set to be titled simply Pop Culture Mom.

"It's [Lynne Spears] telling her story of what it was like being a mom and raising two very famous people. It's a memoir."

This book should come with a noose - if you buy it, there's really no point in going on. At least the weather's warm where Lynne's going.

"I've been trying to braid my hair like LC, and I can't figure out how she does it. Can you post a picture?" - from The Hollywood Gossip mailbag

We can't help this reader with tips on how to copy LC's look, but we can certainly oblige by posting a photo of this celebrity hairstyle - one as cute as it is unusual.

It helps to look as good as Lauren Conrad, of course.

Fans of The Hills may have noticed that in the third season, a single braid across the side of Lauren Conrad's hairline, with her long, otherwise straight and flowing locks, became her signature look of sorts. See below...

Just LC

What do you think of Lauren Conrad's signature, singular braid? How does it compare with some other celebrity hairstyles we've seen on The Hills and beyond?
