Hilary Duff and Haylie Duff are so close, they're like sisters.

So you know it's a big deal for Hilary's hockey player boyfriend, Mike Comrie, to have officially passed the all-important Haylie test.

Sexy Hilary Duff

"I think he's great and so special," said big sister Haylie Duff, 22, to People at the Guess/Conde Nast Movies Rock party in L.A. on November 29.

"I love him. He's a really great guy."

Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie - the former collegiate All-American and 27-year-old forward for the New York Islanders - have been dating since the summer. That's not too long, but Mike Comrie is already known for big displays of devotion.

In September, Mike Comrie "surprised" Hilary Duff with a $100,000 Mercedes in honor of the singer and actress' 20th birthday.

"He's good to her," Haylie Duff said. "That's all I care about."

A lot better than Jordin Tootoo was to Kellie Pickler.

Shopping and clubbing evidently burn a lot of calories.

Just kidding. But with all the hectic drama up in The Hills, it's a wonder any of the lovely ladies (or Heidi Montag, for that matter) ever have time to work out!

Well, Lauren Conrad didn't for a long time - until a friend took her to a Nike store and convinced LC to buy herself a complete workout wardrobe.

The result? Lauren turning into a fitness monster!

The results of her workout regimen â€" twice-a-week weight training, running along with kickboxing, mixed in with a fish-and veggie-friendly diet â€" have landed Lauren on the forthcoming, January 2008 cover of Shape magazine. Way to go, girl!

Lauren Conrad: Kickboxing and taking names.

As for her diet, it wasn't always easy for this former fast food fan. Lauren Conrad admits: "I used to love fast food, but now I eat six smaller meals a day consisting mostly of fish, beans, and other protein, along with veggies."

That, and a steady diet of beef ... with Spencer Pratt!

Farewell, Miranda Kerr. We barely got to know you. But we trust that you'll be back and dating another random celebrity in no time. Keep your chin up.

Sources say Brandon Davis has been cut off from his oil tycoon family's fortune, which would seemingly ruin his chances of getting laid forever.

Trouble for Brandon Davis

Well, think again on that. After a reported dalliance with Miranda Kerr, Davis' previous fling, Australian model Cheyenne Tozzi, is back in the picture!

A photo of Cheyenne Tozzi. Yes, Brandon Davis hits this.

Yes, Cheyenne Tozzi is dating the oil heir. The pair were spotted hitting up the Whiskey Bar in L.A. on Sunday night - great for Brandon Davis' sobriety.

Davis, a.k.a. Greasy Bear, has already been to rehab numerous times. Hopefully Tozzi, a.k.a. Koala Bear, can restrain him from his usual obnoxious antics.

We have just learned that Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland has been arrested for DUI. We cannot sit here and tell you were are entirely stunned by the news. Guy is a little out there.

Weiland has long battled substance abuse and was arrested after crashing his car and failing sobriety tests on November 11 in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, the California Highway Patrol said.

No one was injured in the accident.

The musician was booked at the Van Nuys jail and refused to take a blood or urine test. He posted $40,000 bail and is due in court December 13.

Weiland has yet to be formally charged by the L.A. City Attorney's office.

The former Stone Temple Pilots singer is no stranger to legal trouble over the years. He was jailed for drug offenses in the 1990s and then some.

He was busted for buying crack in 1995, domestic violence in 2001, DUI in 2003, and allegedly trashed a hotel room while brawling with wife Mary Weiland.

Mary Weiland, who was arrested and booked for investigation of felony arson vandalism after allegedly setting fire to some of her husband's clothes, later issued a statement saying her husband was "simply trying to help calm me down."

In July, Scott Weiland claimed he was past his troubles, saying, "There's definitely a Cleaver sense about our household."

Lance Armstrong has recently been spending time with many babes, some of them famous and anemic. But his most frequent conquest came as something of a surprise.

At a recent NASCAR Nextel Party at New York City hot spot Marquee, OK! Magazine spies spotted Lance Armstrong and Kim Strother getting awfully cozy.

Kim Strother is a 30-something fitness model with the Ford Agency, sources report, and according to onlookers, the cute couple was more than friendly.

"[Lance Armstrong and Kim Strother] were all over each other in Marquee sitting in the banquette," one person at the party reveals.

"They were completely into each other the whole time. I didn't see them kissing, but she was sitting on his lap at one point and being very affectionate."

It is believed that the seven-time Tour de France winer and Kim Strother, who some say bears a strong resemblance to two of Lance's recent ex-girlfriends â€" Sheryl Crow and Tory Burch â€" exited the club together around 3:45 a.m.

Kim Strother doesn't much resemble his most recent plaything, Ashley Olsen. We are guessing that Kim eats, making such a comparison pretty impossible.

Katherine Heigl is as outspoken as she is hot.

This can be good and bad. She did not hesitate to lambast Isaiah Washington for his gay slurs on the set, and will be the first to admit that her Grey's Anatomy character's recent story lines suck worse than Jessica Sierra during a routine traffic stop. But Heigl also comes off a tad pompous in a new interview with Vanity Fair.

In the magazine's January issue, Heigl says that this summer's hit comedy, Knocked Up, which stars herself and Seth Rogen, is a little sexist because it "paints women as humorless and uptight, and paints men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys."

Katherine Heigl is certainly never one to hold back.

"It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, some days," Heigl adds. "I'm playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you're portraying women? ... It was hard for me to love the movie."

Looking like she's been doing crystal meth with Britney Spears and Howie Day, a distraught and strung-out Amy Winehouse was spotted wondering the streets of London at 5:45 this morning wearing just her bra, jeans and no shoes.

The Daily Mail (U.K.) reported that Amy Winehouse, who recently canceled all her tour dates, had emerged from a friend's house in East London early this morning looking quite distressed, wandering the streets aimlessly and near tears.

Warning: The celebrity photo below is extremely graphic ...

Heroin Addict

Amy Winehouse: Sexy as hell... if you're into heroin and meth addicts.

A witness told the Daily Mail, "She came out of the house, walked down the drive and wandered around the pavement for a bit. She looked upset and agitated but there was no obvious reason for her to come outside. It was weird."

Yes, you could say that. A rep for Winehouse offered this explanation, "Amy had been fast asleep and heard a noise. She then went outside to investigate."

Loosely translated, that means, "Amy had called her crack and meth dealer after her supply had run out, then went outside when she thought she heard him."

Any Winehouse is clearly not responding well to the absence of her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who was recently jailed and is being held without bond on charges of witness tampering in conjunction with a previous arrest for assault.

On the other hand, we've seen plenty similarly absurd Winehouse photos when he was a free man. One thing's for sure: We'll stay tuned to this train wreck watch.

Actress Hayden Panettiere made international headlines last month when she was involved in a violent protest in which she and other activists tried in vain to stop fishermen from their traditional hunting of dolphins off the coast of Japan.

The altercation didn't end well for the animals, and Hayden Panettiere was rather upset about it, understandably. But every dark cloud has a silver lining, and for us, that means a pair of bikini photos of Hayden Panettiere from that day!

Her beloved dolphins in Japan were not saved, unfortunately, but these Hayden Panettiere bikini pics were saved... by our staff... on our hard drive. Okay, that's it.

Come to think of it, if she wants to raise awareness about this important cause, the bikini photos ain't a bad means of going about it. Moreover, just think about the impact a Hayden Panettiere nude photo spread would have on young minds ...

Anyway. The Heroes star and the rest of her world-saving fellow cast members return with an exciting episode tonight on NBC. Needless to say, we'll be tuning in.

Making a run at Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly for Hollywood Gossip cutie of the day, Emmy Rossum looked downright adorable in this pink dress at the Movies Rock: A Celebration Of Music In Film event on Sunday in Hollywood.

The 21-year-old singer-actress and Las Vegas star Molly Sims introduced Nicole Scherzinger, who performed "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend."

We weren't there, but are guessing that was a watershed moment in music history. In any event, here's a cute Emmy Rossum photo for your enjoyment.

Emmy Rossum: Wearing pink, looking pretty perfect.

Emmy Rossum's Christmas album, called "Carol of the Bells," comes out this week. The 21-year-old New York native is perhaps most well known for her leading roles in the films The Day After Tomorrow and the 2004 version of The Phantom of the Opera. She also starred in the soap opera As the World Turns as a kid.

We predict that one day, Emmy Awards will be in her future. Think about it ... that would be like (a drag-wearing) Oscar de la Hoya winning an Oscar. Only possible!

Eight men say they either had sex with embattled Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) or were targets of sexual advances by him at various points in his career.

One is a former escort whose allegations disgraced the Rev. Ted Haggard, former president of the National Association of Evangelicals, the Idaho Statesman reports.

The newspaper identified four men who had sex with Craig or had encounters they say involved him. Four others, who were not identified, also talk about sexual advances or encounters involving the conservative Republican from the Gem State.

Sen. Larry Craig pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after being accused by an undercover officer of soliciting sex at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport and later called a news conference to deny he is gay, which pretty much no one believed.

"It is unfortunate that the Idaho Statesman has chosen to continue to lower itself to the standards of what can best be described as tabloid journalism," Craig said in the statement regarding the newspaper's most recent reports.

Craig and his staff declined further comment on the story about the eight accusers, although in every interview since his arrest - including a recent sit-down with Matt Lauer - the Senator has come off about as convincing as O.J. Simpson.

The report is the Statesman's latest foray into the sexual background of Larry Craig since his June arrest in an airport men's room sex sting operation.

The Idaho Statesman Editor, Vicki Gowler, said the paper spent several months checking backgrounds and details of the men's stories. Two of the identified men and one of the unidentified men told the newspaper they had sex with Craig.

One of the men identified in the report, Mike Jones, 50, self-described as a former male escort, said Larry Craig paid him $200 for sex in late 2004 or early 2005. The encounter took place at a studio apartment in downtown Denver.

The undercover officer who arrested Craig said the senator moved his foot next to the officer's foot and tapped it in a way indicating he wanted sex. He also says Craig sent a signal by swiping his hand under the divider between men's room stalls.

Sen. Larry Craig later said the officer misconstrued those motions
