We never thought we'd be able to make a Britney Spears joke at the expense of Orlando Bloom, but the hunky actor is reportedly following in the train wreck's footsteps and becoming part of a hit and run investigation.

The LAPD is investigating a weekend car crash involving Orlando Bloom, and cops are still looking at the possibility that he acted illegally.

The accident occurred just after 2:00 AM Friday, after Orlando Bloom left a Hollywood club. The woman in the back seat, prominent fashion stylist Cher Coulter, suffered a fractured neck in the crash.

Just minutes after leaving the club, Orlando smashed into a parked Porsche, then began walking away from the scene. But X17 has this video of paparazzi members urging Bloom to return, which he eventually did.

Orlando Bloom and stylist Cher Coulter were involved in a car wreck. She was riding in the back seat and after he crashed his car, he may have acted illegally.

Ironically, right as Cher Coulter left the club, before getting in the car, she said to Orlando, "What, are you gonna leave me on the street?" Minutes later, it turns out, that's exactly what he did ... when he walked away.

As to why the police did not administer a field sobriety test to the Lord of the Rings star, one detective says that even if an officer saw "minor objective symptoms" of intoxication, it's still a subjective judgment call.

Detectives say Orlando Bloom has been interviewed by cops, and he said an SUV with celebrity news reporters cut him off and caused the crash. The LAPD is investigating that claim as well, and the investigation is open and active.

Those are the worst of ESPN's The Sports Gal, not us. Although we so agree! A costumed Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott recently went back in time - to the '20s - to film an episode of their reality TV show, Tori and Dean: Inn Love.

Perhaps they should have instead traveled back to 1997... to the day Donna Martin graduates! Oh yeah! We're here all day folks. We're here all day.

In any event, here's a picture of Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott, their son Liam and their dog. We never thought we'd say this, but maybe Tori should stick to working with the Pussycat Dolls. This reality thing? Not working...

Tori Spelling: Eking out a living any way a talentless hack can.

After being outed by Brody Jenner in last night's enthralling episode of The Hills as the source of vicious rumors, the plastic Heidi Montag posted this blurb this morning on her website regarding the Lauren Conrad sex tape:

Fake Newlyweds

Her words, with typically bad grammar: "Me and Spencer did spread the false rumors about Lauren Conrad's sex tape." Spencer and I, girl. Spencer and I.

But a few hours later, apparently, Heidi Montag has retracted the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumor admission we all know is true. She claims her official site was hacked!

The mea culpa above has been removed. Weak sauce.

Whoever hacked Heidi Montag's official site, if that's what happened, gets major props from The Hollywood Gossip. Next time, we hope to see a post in which Spencer endorses his favorite brands of tampons and yeast cream.

But what do you think? Do you believe Heidi Montag's hacker claim? We never know what to believe in The Hills universe, except three things:

  1. Jen Bunney is really annoying.
  2. We need to see more Whitney Port!
  3. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt need to take a course in web design. Come on, people. You claim to be celebrities and these are your sites? Losers.

Drew Carey recently got engaged to Nicole Jaracz, but that's not the only exciting new beginning on tap for the rotund funny man.

With an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" attitude, Carey has officially assumed Bob Barker's hosting duties at The Price Is Right.

On this particular afternoon, Carey is biding time in Bob Barker's old dressing room before a taping.

Finishing touches are being made on a new dressing room that will be Carey's alone. For years, Bob Barker shared his with The Young and the Restless actresses and talk-show host Bill Maher.

There also are changes to the set, though it would take a most loyal viewer to identify them: a slightly altered color scheme, pastel curtains, a new re-carpeted turntable. Only The Price is Right's legendary Showcase Showdown wheel has been spared any retouching.

Drew Carey isn't wearing his signature black specs, and though he appears more youthful without them, he slips them on as soon as he is on stage. He had Lasik eye surgery years ago but says he still needs bifocals to read prices.

"It really does get blurry," he said.

Unlike his love for Nicole Jaracz. We can only hope that other recently engaged comedians, such as Jimmy Fallon (to Nancy Juvonen) are as happy as Drew.

The great Britney Spears was already looking for the next party as she left an LAPD police station after being booked on charges of hit-and-run and driving without a valid license in California on Monday night.

The 25-year-old pop star turned herself in for an August 6 incident in which she hit someone else's car with hers, parked and walked away without leaving a note.

Spears Family Moment

At the station, Britney Spears mug shot was taken, then she was fingerprinted and released on the promise to appear in court later this month.

While exiting the police station (wearing sunglasses at night), she submitted to a quick Q&A with a CBS reporter. Needless to say, it was a riveting exchange.

How did it go?
"Amazing."

What was the experience like?
"They were nice."

Do you feel relieved?
"Yeah."

What are you guys doing tonight?

"Where's the party at?"

Any plans for Halloween?
"Not yet."

No outfits for the kids?
"Um, not yet."

Yeah. Perhaps Britney Spears should just zip it and leave all future comments to Sam Lutfi, Alli Sims or whomever her personal assistant is at that moment.

You can't exactly call this a nipple slip, but Victoria Beckham can't seem to be photographed without her nipples / large breasts as the focal point.

Perhaps this is why she brought along a new accessory to divert attention. Yes, that's little Cruz Beckham with mom at The Grove outdoor mall Monday. Now that is one cute celebrity baby... er, toddler. Eat your heart out, Sean Preston.

Posh Rocks London

Maybe Victoria has been watching Lucy Pinder or her new pal Dita Von Teese get naked a little too often.  Regardless, how cute is Cruz Beckham!? Awww.

Call it fantasy celebrity fashion.

"It's Disney, princess-inspired and fun," Nicky Hilton said of her spring Chick by Nicky Hilton collection that helped kick off Los Angeles fashion week.

Yes, Nicky Hilton has her own fashion line. All these celebrities are starting to come out with them. Who's next? Lauren Conrad? Oh, wait.

In attendance for Hilton's first runway show was the 24-year-old's boyfriend of nearly a year, David Katzenberg, who told People:

"I am very proud of her. She worked hard on it."

Great quote from David Katzenberg there.

When it came time for the designer to take her walk down the runway for the event's finale, David Katzenberg, a man of few words, gave Nick a kiss on the cheek and white roses, then said, "I was impressed."

Nicky's rich parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, also were on hand to show their least annoying daughter support. "Nicky is so passionate about her fashion. It's exciting to see her show," Rick said before the show began.

Among others who were there? My Name is Earl star Jaime Pressly. Noticeably missing? Famed Hollywood harlot (and Nicky's older sister) Paris Hilton.

Move over, John Mayer and Minka Kelly. Carrie Underwood and Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford are the newest couple to feature a current music star and an up-and-comer from a critically acclaimed, ratings-impaired TV show.

Chace Crawford, 22, and the insanely cute Carrie Underwood, 24, were locking lips last Friday at NYC club Marquee, according to OK! Magazine.

"They were canoodling all night and stayed until close," revealed one eyewitness.

Saturday, the couple was spotted at Mario Batali's Del Posto restaurant, the Soho Grand and the Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel.

Well then, that's a lot of eating and drinking together! These two are totally dating. They are together more than Rihanna and Josh Hartnett lately.

At the Soho Grand, Chace Crawford, who stars on the new CW series Gossip Girl with Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, "held court with [Carrie Underwood] at their own private table, kissing and not leaving each other's side."

All we have to say about this is that it's been a tough week for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, the last handsome youngster linked to the American Idol country queen. First they get drubbed by the Patriots and now this.

After a week absence that tested our patience, The Hills girls returned to bring Season 3's rising, soap-opera style tensions to a new high.

  • The subject of this week's drama: Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors.
  • The creator of the rumors (or at least the person bringing them up again, months later): Notorious troublemaker Jen Bunney.

Blame it all on the Bunney, indeed.

Lauren Conrad's fair-weather friend returned to The Hills with a vengeance last night, making that annoying ass pouty face and saying "like" and "um" more times than we can count. And blaming Brody Jenner for spreading those LC sex tape rumors that we thought simmered down months ago.

Of course, to any Hills fan, the theory that Brody Jenner spread sex tape rumors about Lauren Conrad sounds crazy. Where's the motive? This is a guy who won't say a harsh word towards anyone. And his alleged involvement in these rumors is a result of hearsay from - guess who - Heidi Montag.

Yes, Jen Bunney tells Lauren Conrad that Heidi Montag said Brody Jenner made up the rumors. Looks like she's just trying to take the heat off Spencer Pratt.

Traveling the way much celebrity gossip does these days - txt msg, omg - LC gets a message at work that Jen Bunney needs to talk to her. Small talk is not a big part of the equation here, as "Buns" is quick to drop the Lauren Conrad sex tape bomb, so to speak. Poor LC. She's just trying to move on and live her life!

Slightly suspicious of Brody Jenner, Lauren confronts the Prince of Malibu and he skirts the issue, reluctant to admit that he knows Spencer did it. But Lauren starts accusing him and finally he relents, stating that he knows "100 percent for a fact" that the loathsome Spencer Pratt is to blame.

Basically, this whole episode confirmed what we've known for months. You have to love The Hills, people, there's really no show like it.

In other news, Whitney Port was adorable (yet far too sparingly used) at the Teen Vogue offices, while Lauren apologized to Audrina Patridge for being judgmental about Justin Brescia (better known as Justin-Bobby) in Las Vegas.

He had a couple of good lines while shooting pool, although they may have to start giving him subtitles, because he mumbles too much to be understood.

Britney Jean Spears, also known as #1020419, is 5'5" and weighs 125 pounds, her hair is brown and so are her eyes. She was officially arrested at 9:25 p.m. on Monday, October 15, and booked just one minute later.

Yes, one-time singer and venerable train wreck Britney Spears turned herself in and was booked Monday for her two driving-related misdemeanor charges.

"At around 9:25 this evening, Ms. Spears turned herself in to the Van Nuys Jail for booking," said LAPD officer Mike Lopez. "This was by court order, which is common for a misdemeanor charge."

A smiling Spears, wearing a short black dress, a black jacket and carrying a white purse, was accompanied by her good friend Sam Lufti and her lawyer J. Michael Flanagan when she surrendered at the jail.

Above: the Britney Spears mug shot. Just kidding! The LAPD says its policy is to not release the Britney Spears booking photo. But it should leak soon, not to worry.

On October 9, the "star" and "singer" was ordered by L.A. Court Commissioner Rebecca Omens to be booked. She will be arraigned for misdemeanor charges - hit-and-run causing property damage and driving without a valid license.

Spears, who is due back in court October 25, faces up to a year in jail if convicted, but Flanagan previously told People, "We're working toward a resolution of the case, but we don't have a firm deal yet." Bribes go a long way.

The charges stem from a fender bender in a San Fernando Valley parking lot on August 6. Britney Spears made a wide right turn into a parking space, scraped another car's bumper and then left without leaving a note.
