Just when it seemed like Audrina Patridge was patching things up with her roomies LC and Lo, she’s moving out. Last week she made it official.

So what drove her out of the house owned by Lauren Conrad and inhabited by Lauren Bosworth (Lo), with whom Audrina often butted heads?

A Smiling Star

“I just wanted my own place,” Patridge recently told Maxim magazine. “If anything, I feel like it will help out all our friendships.”

Well that's ... rather mature and un-scandalous.

It’s no secret that Audrina and Lo don’t exactly get along — but does that mean Lo was to blame for the move, at least in part?

Team Lauren Conrad was not always on the same page.

“The only reason Lo and I are friends is because of Lauren,” she said. “They grew up together and hang out all the time; they’re like the Bobbsey Twins.”

As for LC and her other former roommate, Heidi Montag, Patridge says the much-hyped hatred between the two stars of The Hills is the real deal.

“They really don’t like each other, but I’m friends with both of them,” she said. “When we hang out, I don’t talk about the other. I’m like Switzerland.”

As for the plastic princess, she supports Auds' move.

“It’s the right time in Audrina’s life to move out,” Heidi Montag told People. “I’m very excited for her and I think she’ll do great.”

And if Patridge needs a post-Lauren Conrad pal, she knows who to call. “I love Audrina,” Heidi said. “We were friends before her and Lauren were friends.”

Yesterday, Republican presidential candidate John McCain was supposed to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman, but he bailed at the last second to head to Washington and deal with the country's mounting economic crisis.

Far from pleased by this charade, Letterman went off on some serious rants - even by his standards - against McCain and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. No Brad Hanson jokes were made, but just about everything else was fair game:

John McCain Who?!

Quite the week of The Bachelor news. First, Andrew Firestone announced that he and wife Ivana Bozilovic are expecting their first child.

Now former Bachelorette Jen Schefft is engaged to boyfriend Joe Waterman!

"I'm so excited and so happy," says Schefft.

The couple, who live in Chicago, met on a blind date in February. Their matchmaker: One of Schefft's previous blind dates, with whom she didn't click.

Joe Waterman, Jen Schefft

"We really get each other," Schefft says of Waterman, 35, a trader. "I guess it's true things move fast when you meet the right person."

Schefft, who struck out on both The Bachelor in 2003 and The Bachelorette in 2005, went on to author the relationship book Better Single Than Sorry.

She is the director of ad sales for Heavy.com.

Joe Waterman didn't know much about Schefft from TV – but he stays away from the series' signature flower. "He gives me flowers but never roses," she says.

Is Brad Hanson the male Rielle Hunter?

It's too early to tell, but the National Enquirer was right the last time - and now they're finally publishing the name of the man they believe had an intimate affair with Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

At long last revealing their source (Palin “family insider” Jim Burdett) and claiming he went through a “vigorous polygraph test,” the celeb news tabloid is alleging that Palin had an extramarital affair around 1996 with Brad Hanson.

"I’ve known about Brad having had an affair for a long time, but it wasn’t until recently that I learned his affair was with Sarah Palin," Burdett said, noting that Brad Hanson previously owned a snowmobile dealership with Sarah's husband, Todd Palin.

"Sarah Palin was elected mayor of Wasilla, Brad became a city council member in the nearby town of Palmer, and they started an affair. Todd found out about the affair and was so mad he broke up their partnership at the snowmobile dealership."

Times are tough economic times.

The housing and stock markets are falling. Commodity prices are rising. We all must step back and focus on the expenditures that really matter in life.

Like Marisa Miller pictures.

Talk about a return on your investment. What does the 2009 Marisa Miller bikini calendar cost? $15? That's four cents a day. A day! Think about it.

Actually, don't. Just click to enlarge the awesome photos of the Sports Illustrated model from her calendar below. It's free to do so. What a bargain.

This is a little disappointing. Not that he got caught - that he looks like a normal kid. We were expecting more along the lines of The Simpsons' Comic Book Guy.

Instead, University of Tennessee student David Kernell, 20, is the apparently the genius who "hacked" (i.e. guessed the password and/or the answers to the security questions) Sarah Palin's Yahoo! email account. See photo below.

The FBI stormed his apartment last week, in the process breaking up a party Kernell was having. Frickin' cops. Don't you hate when that happens in college?

Oh, and get this - the dude's father is actually a Democratic Tennessee State Representative named Mike Kernell. This should help his re-election efforts.

In any case, David Kernell has already retained legal representation and, at least as of this posting, he has not been indicted by a grand jury in Chattanooga.

We recommend the Alaska Governor pick tougher questions next time. Something like... Q: Who am I going to strangle with my bare hands? A: Levi Johnston.

Lots of Gossip Girl news today - none of it involving the show, of course.

First, Drew Barrymore may be dating one of the cast members. Now, Leighton Meester, who plays one of the female leads, is on the cover of Us Weekly.

It turns out she was born in jail!

Connie Meester was already pregnant with Leighton when she was sentenced to 10 years in a federal prison in Texas. At 29, she gave birth while she was just starting her sentence as part of an international marijuana smuggling operation.

Her father, Doug, was also involved in the smuggling and served time behind bars. At present, Doug works in construction and Connie is a screenwriter. Though the pair separated in 1992, Leighton Meester has strong relationships with both.

Born Behind Bars

The only star we know who was born behind bars, Leighton Meester believes her humble beginnings have given her some important perspective on life today.

"It makes me very nonjudgmental and open-minded," the 22-year-old said. "And I think it just makes me appreciate the things that I have now. "[My mom] was always there for me no matter what. I swear, that woman knows everything."

A couple of swingin' singles, Drew Barrymore and Chace Crawford of Gossip Girl fame, are now dating, Perez Hilton is reporting this morning.

"It's early on but they're definitely dating," an insider said.

The pair hit up the Saturday Night Live after-party together this past weekend, and were out and about again on Monday night!

Drew Barrymore and Chace Crawford were at the Kings of Leon concert in New York City and they made no attempt at hiding their relationship.

Multiple eyewitnesses say they were making out in plain view!

Chace's last relationship of note was with Carrie Underwood, but they broke up via text message. Like, OMG. Drew broke up with Justin Long in July.

UPDATE: Now Us Weekly is reporting that she actually made out with Ed Westwick - Chace's BFF and Gossip Girl co-star. Apparently Crawford was there, as they go everywhere together, but Drew was all over Ed. Nice work, Perez. Jackass.

R&B star Ciara would like to set the record straight about the photo spread she shot for the October issue of Vibe magazine: She was not nude.

EDITOR'S NOTE: It's fairly obvious that she is. See below.

Ciara at the VMAs

Ciara says she is very upset by the magazine's depiction of her - rumors on the Internets have suggested that the singer was not nude during the photo shoot but instead wearing underwear, which Vibe allegedly airbrushed out.

"I walked into the Vibe photo shoot very excited about making an artistic expression," Ciara said. "And when I saw the photos, I was a little bothered because the photos appear as if I was nude, when in reality I wasn't nude."

EXHIBIT A: The non-nude Ciara nude picture in question.

Vibe Editor in Chief Danyel Smith responded that not only was Ciara nude, the entire idea behind the spread was the singer's, not the magazine's.

"Almost any photo you see on the cover of Vibe or any magazine is airbrushed [to some degree]," he said. "What I was thinking of doing, actually, was releasing the untouched photos online so people can see what the hullabaloo is about."

Here's hoping!

No, not personally - but Lynne Spears is miffed that people vilified pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears, then praised the knocked up Bristol Palin.

This wasn't just the hypocritical reaction of idiots like Bill O'Reilly, either. Most of the general public had a "totally different reaction" to the teen pregnancies of Jamie Lynn and Bristol, Lynne said in an interview with Newsweek.

Ballas and Palin

"It's as if [Sarah Palin] became celebrated," Lynne said.

"I mean, the mother was celebrated for this... Every woman in the world applauded her strength and convictions and poor Jamie Lynn, you saw how she was crucified - everybody did, firsthand. I just feel like it's been a very hypocritical situation."

We'd have to agree.

In December, Jamie Lynn Spears, then 16, announced her pregnancy. She got engaged to Casey Aldridge and gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann in June at age 17.

In August, Sarah Palin, the Alaska Governor and Republican V.P. candidate, revealed that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol Palin, is expecting and engaged to Levi Johnston.

"Do I promote teen sex? Of course not," Lynne said. "Do I promote teen pregnancy? Of course not. But when it happens, you deal with it and you do the best you can do."
