This should put the rumors to rest.

The Hills' Audrina Patridge was spotted kissing her new man, Tal Cooperman, at the opening of bowling lane Strike Orange County in Tustin, Calif.

Hi, Audrina!

Tal Cooperman - who co-owns the DCMA Collective clothing line with close friends Joel Madden and brother Benji Madden - kept their PDA low-key and bowled with a posse including Audrina's tattooed sister, Casey Patridge.

Tal Cooperman and Audrina Patridge: Dating!

Justin-Bobby Brescia could not be reached for comment on the new couple. Nor would we be able to understand his mumbling even if he were available.

Though Audrina Patridge didn't hang out with Hills co-stars Lauren Conrad, Lauren Bosworth and Whitney Port, who were all on hand, she sent over a round of shots. So at least they're still on sort of good terms.

Just when you thought Hayden Panettiere couldn't get any hotter.

Our favorite 18-year-old celebrity went and told the UK edition of Glamour magazine about her experimental ways ... if you know what we mean.

We mean kissing girls with tongue. Yeah, baby!

In this classic file photo, Heroes star Hayden Panettiere and a female friend explore and enjoy each other's bodies. Just the way it ought to be.

She didn't dish much on dating Milo Ventimiglia, her Heroes co-star and boyfriend of the past several months. But she did say this.

"It's great to be single. It's great to have boyfriends... or girlfriends. There are occasions when you kiss your best friend growing up, having fun and just goofing about. Like perfecting your technique!"

Umm, yes. Good idea. Keep working on that technique, Hayden Panettiere.

Former American Idol hopeful Kellie Pickler has on hand to sign autographs at the 2008 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday.

OR WAS SHE?

Was the airhead country crooner actually there for the affair, or did a wax figure take her place? You decide in this edition of Real or Wax ...

Kellie Pickler has fake boobs. There is really no question about that. Come on, you've seen those things. But are they (and the rest of her) real or wax?

Follow the jump to find out the answer ...

Crazy Anne Heche has reached a divorce settlement with her ex-husband Coley Laffoon in which she must pay a lump sum of $275,000, along with $3,700 a month in child support for their six-year-old son, Homer.

A judge also ruled that she must pay 75 percent of Homer's private-school tuition. They agreed to split the cost of any extracurricular activities.

The two wed in 2001. Prior to that, Anne Heche liked girls. Laffon filed for divorce in February of this year, citing irreconcilable differences.

Soon after, Heche accused him of frequenting strip clubs, watching porn, being addicted to online poker and being a deadbeat dad in general.

Well, he's got plenty of money to double down with now!

The dirtbag fired back in court papers, saying she's insane and her "credibility should be called into question as a result of her mental instability."

Hard to argue with you there, Coleman Laffoon.

There haven't been too many photos of Ryan Shawhughes, actor Ethan Hawke's girlfriend, and with whom he is expecting a child soon. Quite soon.

This is the best we've come across, in fact. Check out the baby bump action on Ryan Shawhughes below, as the former nanny shops in New York ...

Brad, Angelina and Six Kids!

This is Ryan Shawhughes, former nanny and current baby mama of Ethan Hawke. She's cute... and pregnant with what will be a beautiful celebrity baby.

For best friends Lauren Bosworth and Lauren Conrad, it was a case of the blonde leading the blind - or, in this case, the blonde - Thursday evening at the opening of Strike Orange County in Tustin, Calif...

Blonde trust: Lauren Bosworth guides Lauren Conrad.

In spite of their admittedly poor bowling skills, Lo Bosworth and Lauren Conrad tackled this sporting task - but focused on the most important things.

"I've never scored above 100 ever. I normally get, like, around 60," said Lo, bowling with martini in hand, of course.

Two years ago today, The Hollywood Gossip burst on the scene with a single blog. Appropriately, on the devilish date of 6/6/06, Lindsay Lohan was the topic.

What a wild ride it's been since. To commemorate our second birthday, we're taking a look back at the stars who generated the most traffic on our site for each of our 24 months in the crazy biz they call celebrity gossip...

June 2006: Heather Mills. Heather Mills sucks. But that one-legged, gold-digging ex-call girl sure did give us some great stories for a time.

July 2006: Nicole Richie. By this point, Nicole may not have eaten in six months. Brody Jenner, who dated her briefly, tried in vain to force-feed her.

August 2006: Kristin Cavallari. Speaking of Brody, he used to date Kristin Cavallari! They were a super-hot couple for months (an eternity by his standards).

September 2006: Lindsay Lohan. It seems like ancient history now, but in 2006, the cutie was still in the early stages of her downward spiral.

October 2006: Lindsay Lohan. Drinking, partying, sleeping with anyone with a pulse, making awful movies: Why shouldn't LiLo win two straight months?

November 2006: Chris Ivery. Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo made news when she got engaged to longtime beau Chris Ivery on her birthday. A year later, also on her birthday, Ellen Pompeo and Ivery got married in New York!

December 2006: Paris Hilton. Skanky. Worthless. Always in the news. We're surprised it took Paris six whole months to top our list, to be honest.

Britney Spears: No Pants

January 2007: Britney Spears. Fresh off her divorce from K-Fed, Brit Brit went on an epic binge of drinking, random sexual encounters and clubbing with no pants. Hanging out Paris Hilton certainly helped the cause.

February 2007: Antonella Barba. This New Jersey-ite couldn't sing all that well, but her oral skills were on full display. If you know what we mean. We mean there were pics on the Internet of her servicing some schmoe.

Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin has a new role that comes with a full heart: mother to 7-week-old baby girl Zoie.

"You look at your baby and think, 'Wow, I did that.' It's really amazing," Sweetin said.

Suri With Katie

As Zoie happily snoozes on the shoulder of her dad, Sweetin's husband Cody Herpin, the marveling mom says, "I'm still like, 'Oh, wow, I'm a mom.' It's the most overwhelming, exciting thing I've ever done."

And a far cry from where she's been.

Best known for playing spunky middle child Stephanie Tanner on Full House from age 5 to 13, Sweetin then landed a real-life role that cast her against type: battling an addiction to crystal meth.


Jodie Sweetin and hubby Cody Herpin just became parents!

At 22, Sweetin was a college student married to LAPD officer Shaun Holguin and taking a break from acting when she first tried the drug.

Leighton Meester has become a bit of a trendy celebrity style icon for the younger set - both in real life and as Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl.

Both favor bold color choices, yet classic looks. Dresses and tops that are eye-catching, yet refined. It's an interesting balance. Case in point ...
