The rumors persist, and they are revolting. Well, half revolting.

Let's just say that when John Mayer and Minka Kelly began dating recently, which we are still getting used to, forming a couple known heretofore as either Jinka or Jelly (we can't decide), it's clear what each brings to the relationship...

John Mayer in Las Vegas
  • Minka Kelly brings acting talent (as the star of Friday Night Lights), a weird and damn sexy first name, and stunning good looks.
  • John Mayer has bagged a lot of chicks, has a huge dome, and dominates the airwaves with a unique brand of introspective, mediocre soft rock hits.

It's a match built to last... for like 10 days. Anyway, here are two new photos of Minka Kelly and John Mayer, Hollywood's newest hot couple ...

Minka Kelly: So hot. John Mayer: So not.

Picking up where we left off after last week's drool-inducing premiere, the 15 remaining Bachelorettes move into their Malibu mansion. In bikinis. Holla!

There will be two group dates this week on The Bachelor and there will be a rose handed out at each. The rest of these women will have to take their chances at the ceremony at the end of the night. The tension in the air is thick. Almost as much so as Brad Womack's abs. Guy is frickin' ripped!

Womack, Brad

What will the dates consist of? Just you wait. The first "date box" has already arrived by the time the cameras roll and inside are lots of wide brimmed hats and toy horses. It's a sign. Jade reads the note:

"Join me for a day at the races. Brad."

Eloquent, Brad Womack. Eloquent. The man keeps it short and sweet.

Those women angling for the hearts of The Bachelor and going to the track are Erin, McCarten, Kristy, Mallory, Hillary, Jade and DeAnna.

As they get ready, McCarten tells Hillary that she's going to get the first kiss from Brad. Hillary responds, "You want sloppy seconds? Because I'm kissing him first!"

Oh. No. She. Didn't.

Jade says she thinks she has a good shot at getting the rose because she's one of the more competitive women there and also, "I, personally, think I'm better looking" than the rest of them. If you don't say! Damn, this is gonna be good!

It has only just begun. Continue reading the adventures of Brad Womack in this exclusive episode guide to last night's episode of The Bachelor ...

Britney Spears must hand over custody of her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to Kevin Federline this week "until further notice," a judge ruled Monday after a hearing.

The judge gave no reasons in his written decision, issued after he met lawyers in a session requested by Kevin Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

K-Fed gets custody starting Wednesday.

The ruling comes after the filing of misdemeanor charges against Britney Spears - hit-and-run and driving without a valid license - and claims by her ex-bodyguard, Tony Barretto, that she used drugs, frequently got naked and is a danger to her children, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.

A judge also said Britney is a "habitual, frequent and continuous" user of alcohol and controlled substances, and ordered her to submit to twice-weekly testing.

The singer, who has 50-50 custody with Federline, was seen around town with Sean Preston and Jayden James over the weekend, and on Sunday they had an early dinner in Malibu, as a crush of celebrity news people camped outside.

"She seemed fine," said Tony Koursaris, owner of the restaurant, Taverna Tony's, where she dined. "She was very comfortable having dinner here with her boys... The kids had a good time. Then we had to fight the paparazzi, of course."

It's really, really difficult for a mother to lose all custody of her children, but Britney Spears has always been extremely talented. And insane. Never count her out!

The photographers, however, did come in handy at one point over the weekend. Around midnight Saturday, her Mercedes ran out of gas during a food run.

Taking a break from trying to snap celebrity pictures of Britney Spears with no pants, some paparazzi went to a gas station and helped her gas up her Benz.

Britney Spears grabbed dinner at a Greek restaurant, Taverna Tony's, in Malibu on Sunday with - of course - sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, several male assistants and about 100 celebrity news photographers in tow.

As you can see, Jayden James Federline looks thrilled by the whole scene...

Apparently Britney Spears stopped off for a meal after taking paparazzi for a drive around Beverly Hills, then returning to Malibu without getting out of the car.

Check out the video below of Spears and the kids leaving the place. At least she wasn't wearing no underwear on this day, but she did manage to crawl under a car seat and flash photographers. Yup, no way you can avoid that one!


It's about time. We were starting to worry. After all, what's a day the world of celebrity gossip without some video footage from up Britney Spears' skirt?

If you missed the video screen caps of the lovely Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge modeling for Maxim magazine last week, well, you didn't miss much. Because here are two of the finished photos of the sexy stars of The Hills. Hot!


Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge: sexy in anything or next to nothing.

These girls are everywhere these days! Audrina Patridge (top) bares serious skin in some lingerie, whereas Lauren Conrad looks a little more conservative, yet still downright... no comment ... in a lavender nightgown.

What kinds of drama will follow when their hot show, The Hills, returns with an all-new episode tonight? There can be no telling. Sadly, there probably won't be any shots of Lauren and Audrina modeling underwear.

Rumors of an imminent split between Pink and her husband, Carey Hart, have persisted for months, yet the singer says this is bull$h!t and that nobody and nothing has put a damper on the couple's undying love for each other.

In other news completely unrelated to Carey Hart, but involving the wacko singer, Pink got her nipple pierced! Which is kind of cool and kind of gross! Check it out!

Not that Pink getting her nipple - or any other body part - pierced is at all weird to us. What less likely famous person would you want to see get this done?

Nicole Richie finally put enough pounds to break the century mark. Now it looks like she is preparing to bid farewell to the Knocked Up, Unwed Celebrities Club!

According to TMZ, Nicole Richie and her baby daddy, rock musician Joel Madden, may have finally set the date for their wedding. And it's soon!

A Mom Again

Sources tell TMZ that The Wedding Fairy - no, not Perez Hilton, but an upscale wedding planner by that name based in Orange County, Calif., - will coordinate the small ceremony that is to take place October 13 in Laguna Beach.

Hopefully, the ceremony will be broadcast on MTV, with Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari as bridesmaids and Stephen Colletti and Jason Wahler as groomsmen.

When the celebrity news site contacted Lorraine Keseloff, a wedding planner and owner of the company, who had no comment and quickly hung up the phone.

Nicole Richie's rep did not return calls seeking comment either. We'll keep our eyes peeled, though. Under two weeks until she's an honest anorexic woman!

David Hans Schmidt, the self-proclaimed "Sultan of Sleaze," told the New York Daily News he tried to kill himself two weeks ago, prior to completing that task Friday.

Cops found the body of Schmidt, 47, who became famous and rich for peddling celebrity photos and sex tapes, in his Phoenix home, dead of apparent suicide.

David Hans Schmidt had been under house arrest after pleading guilty to attempted extortion involving the wedding photos of Tom Cruise.

"I did something really stupid," he told Daily News gossip columnist George Rush. "I put a belt around my neck in the shower. Fortunately, it didn't work."

"He was phoning me every other day," Rush said. "I kept saying, 'You got to get yourself some medication.' He said he was on some, but it didn't work for long."

David Hans Schmidt was arrested in July after obtaining pictures of Cruise's wedding in Italy last year from a co-defendant, authorities said.

Schmidt threatened to release the pictures if Cruise didn't pay up. Schmidt and his client, who allegedly stole the photos from the wedding photographer's laptop, were seeking between $1.2 million and $1.3 million from TomKat.

Schmidt, who had served time for violating a restraining order taken out by the mother of his daughters, was due back in court October 11 and faced up to two years behind bars. "I can't go back to prison," Schmidt told Rush.

"I tried to tell him how much he had to look forward to, that there was publishing interest in a book and he could use his time to write his memoirs," Rush said.

But David Hans Schmidt was evidently too depressed.

"He had to wear an ankle monitor. He couldn't leave the house, there were liens on everything he owned," Rush said. "He was getting stripped of everything."

David Hans Schmidt was famous, of course, for somehow getting hold of sex tapes and nude photos of celebrities, which he turned around and sold for big dollars.

David Hans Schmidt tried to sell off Paris Hilton photos (such as this one he is seen holding, which she later signed for him) from her L.A. storage locker.

He said he had the Dustin Diamond sex tape, featuring the cretinous actor who played Screech on "Saved by the Bell," and he sold topless shots of Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, as well as Tonya Harding's wedding night sex video.

David Hans Schmidt also said he had nude pics of Gennifer Flowers, who once claimed to have had an affair with former President Bill Clinton

"He just loved doing these deals," said Rush. "When he had something in the works, he was pumped up. Full of energy. But he couldn't do it anymore. He was afraid the prosecutors would use it as evidence that he was unrepentant and continuing to be up to his old tricks... It left him with no income."

Cops said they found David Hans Schmidt dead at 3 p.m. on Friday after they noticed the tracking device he was wearing had not moved.

"He was a lovable rogue," Rush said. "Every time he was on the phone, you knew there was another wild story coming down the pike."

What would Milo Ventimiglia say about this?

Just when we were ready to christen Halo (Milo and Hayden Panettiere) the newest celebrity couple - regardless of whether the Heroes co-stars admit to getting freaky or not - along comes this picture of our girl with another popular TV star, and potentially forming another celebrity couple name.

Hot, Cold Hayden


That's right, here's Hayden with Kevin Connolly, a funny and short actor who has dated Nicky Hilton and has been romantically linked to Haylie Duff ...

Hayden Panettiere & Kevin Connolly: Hevin?

While the Entourage star certainly gets around, heaven might be the best way to describe dating Hayden Panettiere. You know what they say about "barely legal" 18-year olds. They can vote! And buy their own lotto tickets and cigarettes!

Dita Von Teese, who stars in PETA's new Animal Birth Control campaign, is a long-time wearer of fur. And PETA is cool with that.

"PETA's totally aware of me," Von Teese said before performing, in fox fur, her signature striptease at the Macy's Passport AIDS benefit last week.

"I'm not working with PETA to tell people to be vegetarians or to stop wearing fur. I am there to strictly speak about spaying and neutering pets."

Bet she'd like to spay and neuter Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson while she's at it!

For its part, the animal-rights organization says it was aware of Dita Von Teese's fur affections before approaching her to star in its campaign.

"She has some vintage furs she wears occasionally," says PETA spokesman Michael McGraw. "PETA often works with celebrities on an issue they feel comfortable supporting, whether it's supporting spaying and neutering, or speaking out against products that are tested on animals. So they may not be an animal rights activist as a whole, but their contribution to any of our campaigns is appreciated."

The group says it has not yet asked Dita Von Teese to stop wearing fur, but will "possibly" have that discussion in the future: "We're happy to have her support on that issue (spaying / neutering), and we'll see where it goes," says McGraw.

To sum up recent PETA news, for those of you keeping score at home:

  • Pamela Anderson would just as soon have you see Pamela Anderson nude 24-7 than see her wearing fur. She's also possibly engaged to Rick Salomon.
  • Alicia Silverstone is naked and a vegetarian.
  • Vintage fur is the only thing covering an otherwise naked Dita Von Teese during some of her stripteases, but it comes off after awhile.
