It's funny how Lauren Conrad and Carrie Underwood end up in so many of our celebrity fashion clashes here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Maybe we're biased towards a pair of celebrities we have crushes on, but at least some of it must have to do with their trendy fashion sense!

Kylie Jenner Fashion

In this case, the country singer rang in New Year's Eve in Times Square in the same Betsey Johnson coat that The Hills star recently rocked.

Somehow, they both make it work. Possibly because they're beautiful and can pull off anything. But tell us, who wore this coat better?

Carrie Underwood vs. Lauren Conrad... you decide!

We're sorry, but we must report it. The Gene Simmons sex tape has officially hit the open market. Now, try to cleanse your mind of that thought.

Well, after you look at the photo below.

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed

According to AVN, the Gene Simmons sex tape was allegedly made while he was promoting ... Frank's Energy Drink.

Also, the woman in the video is not Shannon Tweed (Gene Simmons' longtime partner and mother of his two kids) but some random model named Elsa.

Elsa is a spokesmodel for Frank's Energy Drink. Part of her job description apparently entails letting Gene do his thing Ray J style...

A still photo from the Gene Simmons sex tape. Wonderful.

The video is supposedly available for purchase at, though the site is not functional as of this posting. The demand for a Gene Simmons sex video must be so high that the server just can't handle this huge load.

Which is also what Elsa said. Heh, heh?

Yeah, yeah. There was the Grammys triumph.

But how's Amy Winehouse doing these days, for real?

"She's full of energy, full of life," her backup singer, Zalon Thompson, tells People. "It's a good thing."

Her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is merely full of heroin.

Winehouse is "ready for the Brits," he says, referring to Amy's scheduled performance Wednesday at the U.K.'s equivalent of the Grammys.

"I think sometimes it takes you to go through certain hard things to overcome and to go on to do better things," Thompson, 26, says. "She looked really good at the Grammys. She just looked very rested. It was great."

Zalon Thompson

But success that night hasn't turned Amy Winehouse - seen here falling into the arms of backup singer Zalon Thompson after winning Grammy #5 - into a diva.

"I was speaking with [mutual friend] Kelly Osbourne the other day. And we were saying how she hasn't changed at all," said Thompson.

"She doesn't believe in the same principles that everyone else gets excited about. Get her a guitar and she'll play for 10 people or 300. She doesn't care about the whole fame thing - it's really about the music."

Zalon Thompson also set the record straight about Blake Wood, a pal of Kelly Osbourne's Amy Winehouse has been hanging out with.

Handsome actor Milo Ventimiglia is featured in the March 2008 issue of GQ and talks a bit about what we all want to hear about.

No, not his shirtless scenes in Heroes (although we do like those).


We're talking about his relationship with 18-year-old co-star, former crush, and current girlfriend, Hayden Panettiere.

Some excerpts from the interview ...

GQ: HALO. That's what the blogs are calling you and Hayden.
Milo: Does the nickname bug you? You know what, man - it makes me smile.

GQ: If you two are dating, why not just say so? I read you bought the girl a ring from Tiffany's!
Milo: When you're in the public eye, you try to keep whatever you can private. People can speculate and talk. But what can you do - stop living your life?

GQ: Hayden was GQ's Obsession of the Year. Did you like those photos?
Milo: Yes, I did. They were very nice.

Man. We love Milo Ventimiglia as a cool guy and talented actor, and sort of hate him for ... you know. It's Hayden Panettiere! Lucky stiff.

Despite the hopes of Britney Spears, her family and even Kevin Federline, lawyers couldn't agree on terms of potential visitation for the pop star.

Therefore, her seeing Sean Preston and Jayden James remains off the table.

Ironic, as FedEx wants Brit to have at least some visitation and lawyers came to court today trying to accommodate this, but it was not to be.

Jamie Spears, Britney's father, wants to restore some normalcy to Britney's life and angled for visitation with the boys in a bad way. To no avail.

There were no changes in the custody order. Having gone nuts, Britney Spears has not seen Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, in a month and a half.

Also, Commissioner Scott J. Gordon made it clear - Brit's conservatorship being challenged in federal court has no bearing on the custody case.

Finally, the firm of Trope and Trope, which has long wanted out, is now officially out as Britney Spears' legal reps. Stacy Phillips is now her lawyer on the case.

The lawyers are reportedly still working - through lunch - to try to hammer out a new agreement and will all be back in court at 4:30 p.m. EST.

Forget Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Mike Huckabee.

While these political stars each have their positive attributes, none are worthy of the sought-after title of Celebrity Gossip President.

Okay, so we just made that title up 45 minutes ago. But we felt that in an exciting presidential election year, The Hollywood Gossip should hold its own race - and YOU, our readers, should get to vote on the winner!

Now, we present you with the candidates for Celebrity Gossip President and Vice President, along with the respective parties nominating them ...

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
(Reality TV Party)
Phony, plastic, master manipulators and attention-seeking media whores who are obsessed with fame. It's like The Hills couple was destined to go into politics.

Kim Kardashian and Ray J
(Celebrity Sex Tape Party)
Upside: Not-so-secret videotaping of all U.S. citizens is sure to improve our national security; Downside: Budgetary concerns due to new White House furniture needing to be made to accommodate Kim's giant ass.

Past Lovers

Donald Trump and Vince McMahon
(Bad Hair-Megalomaniac Party)
If a Trump-McMahon team fails, it certainly won't be due to lack of funds. Or shameless, self-promoting publicity stunts. Or huge grapefruits.

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
(Super-Cute Celeb Couple Party)
Zanessa promises nude photos and perfect hair for all!

Suri Cruise and Jayden James Federline
(Celebrity Baby Party)
Upside: Very cute, little political baggage offers fresh start. Downside: Inexperience, possible brainwashing (Suri) and malnutrition (Jayden).

Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi
(Seedy Britney Spears Hanger-On Party)
Should either be apprehended as part of a sleeper cell before the November election, Alli Sims will take his place on the ticket.

Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest
(American Idol Party)
A Simon-Ryan ticket will be full of witty barbs, low-brow insults and palpable, homoerotic tension. At least Paula won't be part of it.

That's it! Cast your vote for your favorite candidates in our Celebrity Gossip Presidential Primary by voting on our home page or by clicking HERE!

Kevin Federline would like Britney Spears to see their kids, Sean Preston and Jayden James, even during the current conservatorship.

According to TMZ, the FedEx man has no problem allowing the kids to visit Britney at home, with one string attached - that her parents are present.

K-Fed isn't worried that anything bad would happen to Sean Preston and Jayden James, but does fear that Britney might drive with them. Too dangerous.

Jamie Spears' presence would help assuage those fears.

Sources also say K-Fed doesn't necessarily want custody 100 percent of the time, and would like Britney to share custody or at least have visitation.

Of course, if recent comments attributed to Jason Alexander are to be believed, Britney might not necessarily want custody back. So who knows.

There's also the matter of Britney's propensity for wearing no underwear. The flashing of the vadge may not be the best trait for a kid's role model.

In other news, there's talk of Britney Spears going to a private facility for treatment and K-Fed having no problem allowing the kids to visit her there.

Attorneys representing Britney are in court right now for the first custody hearing since the pop star's most recent hospitalization.

Brit's soon-to-be-gone attorney, Anne Kiley, asked Commissioner Scott Gordon to put a gag order on the lawyers and others connected with the custody battle, preventing them from speaking to the media about the case.

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, objected to the gag order, saying it's a violation of freedom of speech. The motion was denied.

Never thought you'd hear that one, did you? Sadly for you overweight peeps (cough, Britney Spears), Joe Simpson is impeding the path to good health!

Well, at least indirectly, according to a dude suing him.

Jessica Simpson's pimp, manager and father has been hit with a lawsuit from a fitness company, Speedfit, for blocking the sale of a DVD starring Jessica.

After signing a multi-million contract, Jessica Simpson  recorded a workout tape for Speedfit shortly before shooting her "breakthrough" role as Daisy Duke in 2005's embarrassment to the film industry, The Dukes of Hazzard.

Jessica Simpson then changed her mind about doing the tape and Joe Simpson got involved to ban its release, Speedfit is claiming in its legal deposition.

Speedfit owner Alex Astilean has filed suit against Joe after failing to secure a $10 million settlement from his daughter last year.

"They are hurting millions of fat people in America!" Astilean tells Us Weekly. "I believe that very strongly. They held the video for years!"

Pierce Brosnan's wife, Keeley Shaye Smith, had no comment.

After a stay in the UCLA psych ward and dialing down her wild lifestyle a bit with the help of her parents, Jamie and Lynne, and her brother, Bryan Spears, it seems that Britney Spears is feeling a bit better these days.

She's still not feelin' underwear, though.

The celebrity gossip media was delightfully treated to some vintage no-pants Britney Spears pictures as she ate out at Shu Sushi last night.

At least we think so. Are there panties here? You tell us.

Britney Spears: No Underwear Yet Again!

Britney Spears: Reigning Hollywood Crotch Shot Queen (2006-present).

Why, Britney? Who the heck knows. Maybe the troubled star simply likes wearing no underwear because she's outgrown all of her underwear stock.

We're not trying to be critical about her weight - we aren't fans of anorexic waifs like Kate Bosworth - but it doesn't look like Britney's eating many salads lately.

Just saying.
