Are Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale turning into Britney Spears before our eyes? Well, they're not total train wrecks (yet), but these young BFFs do seem intent on garnering attention - and gobbling junk food - wherever they go!

The future stars of High School Musical 3 were seen ordering fast food from a drive-thru in Los Angeles this past Saturday - with some amusing results.

The New Vanessa Hudgens

Arriving at a local McDonald's, Ashley Tisdale tried to order a six-piece Chicken McNuggets and a #10 Grilled Chicken Sandwich meal. This soon grew confusing, however, when the photographers tailing Ashley and Vanessa started ordering food items not on the menu, like Burger King Whoppers. Check out the video ...

 Wherever Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens go, chaos follows.

Later, a McDonald's employee gets rather excited about their arrival and exclaims, in reference to the famous celebrity gossip site, "Put me on TMZ! Put me on TMZ!"

Then, referring to Vanessa Hudgens, the McDonald's employee asks, "Wasn't she butt naked somewhere?" Oh yes. This nude photo right here, baby.

Okay. Britney Spears, no pants, this isn't.

But some racy Miley Cyrus photos - featuring the singer frolicking on a hotel floor with a female friend and sharing a piece of candy - have been circulating around the web and causing plenty of controversy in recent days.

Where's the Party?

Before her sold-out Best of Both Worlds concert at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island (N.Y.), the 15-year-old pop sensation insists that the candid shots are innocent - though she is upset they got out in the first place.

"At first, I was really upset. It really sucks," said the Hannah Montana star, who at one point exclaimed, "Look at me getting all upset!"

Not that she plans to shrug off the scandal, or the fact that the photos were leaked.

"It's not something I'm going to let slide," Cyrus said. "I'm really upset about it, 'cause it was not even a big deal."

As for the blonde tonguing that piece of candy with her in the shots, Miley Cyrus calls her "a friend of mine that's a normal girl... That's one of my best friends. I have all these girls who I hang out with all the time."

Lucky.

While Cyrus says she's used to all the attention she gets as a celebrity, both good and bad - "This girl doesn't even have to deal with that, and it's so hard for her. She has to go to school and deal with this crap."

Concerning the racy Miley Cyrus photos themselves, the star says "It's two girls at a sleepover. If that's bad, then what is the world coming to?"

On a musical note, Cyrus also says that she's into her current tour for the fun of it - and once the fun goes away, so will she.

"What I decided before I came to L.A. and started working was the minute I didn't have fun was the minute I go home. I don't want to go home, and I don't want to not do what I do, because I love it, but this ... it's Satan attacking."

Nicole Kidman is not pregnant, her Australian press representative said.

The rumor that Keith Urban got Nicole Kidman pregnant first reported by the UK's Daily Mail, which said the beautiful Oscar winner, 40, told friends and family over Christmas that she and her husband of 18 months were expecting.

But Australia's Melbourne Herald Sun now quotes Kidman's Australian publicist as denying the Daily Mail's story.

"It is incorrect," the spokeswoman said. "She must have had 30 babies by now."

As for Kidman, says the rep, "She's in Australia making a new film" - director Baz Luhrmann's epic Australia, co-starring Hugh Jackman - "and being with her family in Australia. She's happily ensconced away somewhere having a few days break. It's the silly season. As far as we're concerned, it's just another rumor out of London."

Despite wearing no pants in this classic photo, Nicole Kidman has never given birth to a child. Rumors that she is pregnant right now have apparently been quashed.

Still, a friend of Nicole Kidman's tells the Herald Sun it is "conceivable" that the actress is nearly three months pregnant with Keith Urban's child.

"She did have a small baby bump a month ago, so it would be reasonable that she'd now be three months and telling her friends and family," the unnamed friend, surely very close to Nicole, is quoted as saying.

Kidman and her former husband, Tom Cruise, adopted two children during their 11-year marriage: Isabella Cruise, now 14, and Connor Cruise, 12.

An unlikely and trashy duo - Kevin Federline and Paris Hilton - caused heads to turn in Las Vegas over the weekend, partying like rock stars!

Sunday, the duo partied together in Sin City - K-Fed's home away from home - for the second night running. And, of course, getting paid for it.

Both celebrities are in town to host separate New Year's Eve parties - hers at LAX, his at Tangerine - but each big-name attraction started celebrating a few days early, hitting LAX on Saturday and Pure Nightclub on Sunday.

Both K-Fed and Paris have seen Britney Spears, no underwear style.

A source close to Kevin Federline said that the two hung out in Paris Hilton's hotel room Saturday after leaving the club. So it appears the ex-husband of Britney Spears may or may not have become the 200th person to tap that.

Still, Federline and Paris seemed a bit less chummy on Sunday at Pure, mingling only briefly before drinking a shot of tequila together and parting ways.

Now what would a story about Stephen Colletti and Lauren Conrad be without a follow-up post about Kristin Cavallari. A little less hot, that's for sure.

Cavallari, the former Laguna Beach star and Colletti ex, kept warm with a hoodie and scarf outside Villa Lounge nightclub in Hollywood late Friday night.

Kristin Cavallari Smiling

Those 50 degree nighttime temps are brutal, after all.

The lovely Kristin Cavallari was seen without boyfriend Nick Zano... at least in these pics below. Although we believe they are still going very strong.

Kristin Cavallari stays warm outside a club in Hollywood. She keeps us warm, if you know what we mean. Let us know if you do know what we mean - we have no clue.

Kristin is rumored to be making an appearance on The Hills in its future episodes, much to the dismay of star / rival Lauren Conrad - and the delight of guys.

As 2007 draws to a close, it's time to reflect and pay tribute to the stars who made this a year to remember. On that note, The Hollywood Gossip is announcing its 10 finalists for its first annual Celebrity of the Year award.

They've given us their best, their worst and, in a more than a few cases, their naked pictures. Now it is time for us to give a little something back with this special feature, because without these celebrities, we are nothing.

We previously profiled sex tape star Kim Kardashian as our runner-up. Now, without delay, we present our Celebrity of the Year … the incomparable Britney Spears!

With the type of year the former international sex symbol had, it wasn't exactly a close race for this award. When a living, breathing train wreck like Britney Spears is in the news every hour of every day, everyone else is playing for second.

Eyes bloodshot, wearing a leopard-print dress and a pink wig, Britney Spears drives around aimlessly in Los Angeles. That sums up the past few months right there.

Since filing for divorce from Kevin Federline at the end of 2006, Britney's life has been in a tailspin, resulting in countless traffic incidents, custody hearings, photos of her clubbing in no underwear, family drama, and random ass dudes and pals.

From Isaac Cohen, Jason Filyaw, Daimon Shippen, Tony Barretto, Alli Sims, Sam Lutfi and Howie Day to Mark Vincent Kaplan, Robert Edie, J.R. Rotem, Lucy Walsh and some celebrity gossip photographer named Adnan, the list of once anonymous peeps Spears has brought into her life - and our site - continues to grow.

As far as her family life goes, well, that's been no less turbulent. Aside from the two adorable little mistakes - Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 - that she routinely neglects, Britney has been estranged from her mother, Lynne Spears, for much of the year. Oh, and 16-year-old sister Jamie Lynn Spears recently got pregnant.

A very brief list of Britney Spears highlights from the year:

  • Shaving her head (February)
  • Attacking paparazzi with umbrella (February)
  • Leaving rehab, partying immediately (March)
  • A drug overdose with Howie Day (May)
  • J.R. Rotem hitting that wheelbarrow style (June)
  • Random topless photos emerge (August)
  • Giving Tony Romo lap dance (October)
  • Running red light while texting (November)
  • Pregnancy rumors surface (November-December)

Clearly, our Celebrity of the Year could be no one else. Congratulations, Britney Spears, and thank you for all you've given us. Keep up the good work, baby.

Last year's Miss USA, Tara Conner, celebrated her 22nd birthday December 13 - and is also marking her first year of sobriety, she announced Friday on Today.

By this time next year, Tara Conner intends to have another accomplishment under her belt: a tell-all book about her experiences and life lessons, she says.

The Russell Springs, Ky., native spent 31 days recovering at the Caron Foundation rehab facility in Wernersville, Pa., in December 2006.

That followed allegations of wild partying with Miss Teen USA Katie Blair and wide speculation that she would be stripped of her title.

Donald Trump, co-owner of the Miss Universe organization, instead offered her a "second chance" - provided Tara Conner would clean up her act.

A clean, sober Tara Conner plans to write a book about life.

On a side note, his decision over what to do with Conner ignited Trump's famous feud with Rosie O'Donnell, and spawned a reality show, Pageant Place.

Conner completed rehab back on January 21 of this year. Soon after, the blonde beauty admitted that her indulgences had also included cocaine.

Of going to rehab, she told the Lexington Herald-Leader in March, "It taught me to be the genuine Tara Conner. Rehab for me was like an awakening."

An awakening, indeed. The Hollywood Gossip certainly enjoyed waking up each morning to those sexy photos of drunken, raunchy, half-naked girl-on-girl action!

Millie CorretjerOscar de la Hoya and Millie Corretjer have welcomed their second child together, Nina Lauren Nenitte de la Hoya, born Saturday in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The cute little girl arrived at 4:36 p.m. local time, weighing 7 lbs., 13 oz.

"We are so excited and blessed with the new addition to our family!" Oscar de la Hoya, the boxing champ and drag photo queen said in a statement.

Millie Corretjer's pregnancy was first announced in May - an hour after de La Hoya lost a major match in Las Vegas to "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather.

Nina is Oscar De La Hoya's fourth child and Millie Corretjer's second. The couple previously welcomed a son, Oscar Gabriel, on December 29, 2005.

De La Hoya, 34, and Corretjer, a 33-year-old pop singer, were married back on October 5, 2001. The couple met in 2000, when both were signed to the same record label. De La Hoya's debut CD that year earned a Grammy nod.

In addition to his children with Millie Corretjer, the boxer has two other little mistakes from previous relationships: Jacob and Atiana.

Atiana's mother is none other than former Dancing with the Stars contestant / Playboy model / possible Travis Barker spouse, Shanna Moakler.

Milana Dravnel, the stripper-hooker who allegedly was behind the Oscar de la Hoya drag photos circulating around the web this year, had no comment.

Former Saturday Night Live regular Jimmy Fallon and his girlfriend, Nancy Juvonen, a Hollywood producer who worked on Fallon's 2005 romantic comedy Fever Pitch, were married Saturday on Necker Island in the Caribbean.

Jimmy Fallon, 33, and Nancy Juvonen, 40, had their "family and close friends in attendance" at the ceremony, according to a statement from representative Ina Treciokas. No further details were released as of this posting.

The proposal took place in New Hampshire last August "on the dock at sunset at the Junoven family home in Wolfeboro on Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire, where On Golden Pond was filmed," a friend of the couple's told People.

It is a first marriage for both Jimmy Fallon and Nancy Juvonen.

The bride has been a close friend and producing partner of Drew Barrymore for more than a decade. This summer, Barrymore threw Juvonen a huge 40th birthday party, where guests included Eva Mendes, Kathy Griffin, Courtney Love, Jason Bateman and Fred Savage. And, presumably, Jimmy Fallon. Just a guess.

Despite her recent DUI arrest, the skinny actress Mischa Barton, 21, is still planning to host a New Year's bash in Las Vegas this weekend.

"We are aware of Mischa Barton's incident with police this week, but at present she is still expected to host the CatHouse Grand Opening at Luxor Las Vegas on December 29," a rep for the lounge said in a statement.

"We will let you know if anything changes."

The former star of The OC was arrested at 3 a.m. Thursday morning as police spotted her weaving between two lanes of traffic in West Hollywood.

Mischa Barton is all smiles. In this old photo, anyway.

She was charged with possession of a controlled substance and of marijuana, as well as with DUI, according to Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy Sgt. John Hocking.

Barton is due to appear in court in late February to be arraigned. At the very least, no one was injured during her incident. Sadly, Jim Leyritz can't say the same,.
