This piece of celebrity gossip would fit right in on an episode of Gossip Girl. It appears that American Idol winner Carrie Underwood is single again - and the reason is the wandering eye of her most recent boyfriend, Chace Crawford.

Carrie Underwood and Chace Crawford have been spotted together on numerous occasions this fall, and have smiled and gushed about each other in interviews.

But, according to the New York Post, things unraveled because several weeks ago, Crawford was seen making out with some blonde - who wasn't Carrie Underwood.

Carrie Underwood may have to act out some of the scenes her "Before He Cheats" music video if these rumors of Chace Crawford's recent cheating are proven true.

Sources suggest this mystery blonde may have been Katrina Bowden.

Then, last Wednesday night at New York City's Beatrice Inn, Chace and his cute Gossip Girl co-star, Leighton Meester, were seen sucking face - and this didn't involve a scene for their CW series, on which they are boyfriend and girlfriend.

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP NOTE: That would be the same Big Apple locale Heath Ledger allegedly bagged Lindsay Lohan at. That's all we've got.

We'll have more on this story as it develops. All we have to say for now is that we are here if you need us, Carrie. You just need a nice, normal guy who will commit to you... not these Chace Crawford / Tony Romo players. Jerks.

As anyone at The Hollywood Gossip could have predicted, Britney Spears was just about to bail on her music video shoot - until her record label threatened to use the video dancers and location for a younger, rising Aussie starlet!

The New York Post reports that Britney Spears was supposed to show up at Social Hollywood to shoot the video for "Piece of Me," but was, of course, hours late.

Oopsies

When it looked like Spears was going to be a no-show, Jive decided to refit the set for another pop act, Samantha Jade, and her single "Eyes on Me."

"Jive hired Wayne Isham to direct, had the backup dancers there - hair, makeup and everything," a Post source said. "But [Spears] refused to show up. Jive was upset. They were paying everyone overtime. Finally, Britney showed up - 12 hours late - after they said they were going to give the video shoot to Samantha Jade."

Jade, a rising star on the label, was told to be on call to shoot a music video for her single "Eyes on Me." Rather than write off the shoot's expense, the record label was set to have Jade step in and use the team assembled for Spears' video.

"They were going to recalibrate it for Samantha Jade, because it was too expensive to just scrap," the source told the Post. "Britney finally showed up when she realized a new, younger, hotter girl was about to take her slot."

Samantha Jade, left, nearly replaced her fellow Jive artist, Britney Spears.

Saturday, Spears celebrated her 26th birthday, but had to deal with scene-stealing pal Paris Hilton, who showed up at the Scandinavian Mansion of Style in Bel-Air.

"Britney was inside with Sam Lutfi and Alli Sims," a partygoer said. "When Paris saw Britney leaving, she desperately raced out to walk her to her car."

Spears wanted to call her ex-husband, Kevin Federline - but had to borrow Paris Hilton's cellphone "because she could not find her own," a source said.

The desperate"Piece of Me" singer actually invited Kevin to join her at the club during the 1 a.m. call. Not surprisingly, FedEx had other things on his mind.

"Britney begged him to come out with her," a source said, "[but] Kevin reminded her that one of them needed to actually be a parent and take care of [Jayden James and Sean Preston] ... Then she hung up on him. Kevin said she was drinking."

Any episode of The Hills is a must-watch for us, but the penultimate Season Three offering was particularly stellar Monday night. Let's get down to business, shall we?

With a little cajoling from pal Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad decided to be a bit more proactive in pursuing Brody Jenner. At a Halloween party at LC's pad, LC defeated him at beer pong, though you could argue that Brody Jenner, dressed as Robin to Frankie Delgado's Batman, was a beaten man by the time he walked in the door.

In typical fashion, however, the palpable chemistry between the two did not result in any hookups as Brody and Frankie left the party early. On a dinner date later in the week - after a funny scene in which Lauren read off the list of babes in Brody's phone - both LC and Brody seemed hesitant to ask the other for a commitment.

It wasn't all bad news at the Halloween party, though. Finally free of Justin-Bobby (real name Justin Brescia), Audrina Patridge has turned her romantic attention to Corey, an easy-going and fun-lovin' Australian fellow who seems very nice.

Lauren couldn't help but rattle off Corey's list of upgrades over Justin-Bobby:

  • He returns telephone calls
  • He likes to kiss
  • He showers

It's hard to argue, as usual, with the logic and wisdom of LC. Needless to say, her roomie and BFF Audrina Patridge is back on the right track with her new man.

Both of the primary couples on the third season of The Hills - Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt / Brody Jenner and Lauren Conrad - debated their futures last night.

On The Hills 2 - as The Hollywood Gossip staff terms alternate universe featuring Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - tensions rose and a fight for the ages ensued.

At the beginning of the episode, Heidi confided in Spencer's little sister, Stephanie Pratt, about her pre-wedding hesitations and frustrations. Heidi even went so far as to say she is nervous and might want to postpone the wedding day a bit.

Stephanie Pratt, out of concern for her brother, later defied Heidi's orders and told Spencer about this as he went to pick up their save-the-date cards.

He was far from thrilled. Spencer accused Heidi of not wanting to marry him at all because she wants to push the date back. Heidi shot back that she's the only one who sacrifices anything. And so on. Staged or not, this was one hell of an argument. Heidi warned Spencer as he stormed out, "If you leave, don't come back!"

The climactic spat might have resonated more with our staff if we didn't see Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt photos every day in the tabloids, but no matter. It was
one of the better moments from one of the best episodes of The Hills ever.

Depends on when and where you catch him! In the current Us Weekly, the tabloid quotes the lame singer as telling friends: "I am single, and Minka is not my girlfriend."

Hmmm. Someone should probably tell Minka Kelly that!

After all, John Mayer likes playing the field.

The large-headed, 30-year-old crooner was spotted "kissing, holding hands" and dirty dancing with ex-flame Cameron Diaz at GoldBar in N.Y. City November 30.

But Monday, he dined with Minka Kelly, the 27-year-old Friday Night Lights star, at the Waverly Inn. They continued their night at the hot spot Butter.

John Mayer, Minka Kelly

John Mayer loves Minka Kelly... as long as his friends don't know.

Photographers taunted the couple, asking John Mayer if he thought Cameron Diaz's body "was a wonderland," a play off an awful but popular song he wrote.

John Mayer �" who once said that the love song was about another ex-girlfriend of his, the newly engaged Jennifer Love Hewitt �" called the comment "tasteful."

"You should go on stage," Mayer jokingly told the members of the celebrity news media, who had begun serenading him with his own song.

Bottom line? Minka Kelly had been keep close watch on her heart. John Mayer has seen Cameron Diaz, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt nude. As bad as his music may be, it enables him to gain access into many pairs of celebrity pants.

Last week, we learned the disappointing news that we will no longer see Brad Pitt nude on screen. The actor takes his role model status seriously.

On a similar note, fans better enjoy Julia Roberts in a bathing suit in her upcoming movie, Charlie Wilson's War, because that's as close to nude as she's gonna get!

Julia Roberts Red Carpet Pic

There's a reason why we don't see Roberts naked or even running around in bathing suits in movies, the 40-year-old actress tells E! "It's just not my thing."


Julia Roberts nude scenes: Not her thing and not gonna happen.

We know what you are thinking. You saw Julia Roberts nude in Pretty Woman. Sorry, you're wrong. She used a body double to shoot nude scenes even then!

The mother of three, who welcomed her youngest son, Henry, in June, has always closely guarded her private life with her husband, Danny Moder.

There's certainly nothing wrong with her desire to keep her clothes on at work, either - despite how enjoyable seeing Julia Roberts naked might be.

Jenna Fischer was recently named the hottest celebrity divorcee by Maxim.

With good looks and an innocent, girl-next-door charm, it's no surprise how Jenna Fischer has endured herself to fans - who will get to see a lot more of this actress in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, which stars John C. Reilly.

Jenna Fischer and Husband

"John has a great butt," said Fischer, who split from her director husband James Gunn in September. "That's his butt in the movie. I want the world to know that John C. Reilly has a mighty fine tush." Really, thanks for letting us know.

As for the partially nude Jenna Fischer sex scenes?

"During that first seduction scene, John played around with all these sexy animal noises. First he growled, and I reacted by saying "Oh, My Tiger!" Then he pretended to be a horse; "Oh, my stallion!" Then he quacked and I said, "Oh! My ..... Duck!"

No word on if there's any Jenna Fischer nude material in the flick, but The Office star confirms that she and Reilly may have set a record for longest kiss.

"The director told us we needed to go as long as possible, then a little longer," Fischer said. "We decided it was going to be the biggest buildup to a kiss ever!"

Not a bad feat for someone recovering from a broken back.

"I hurt myself this summer," she says. "I fell down stairs and fractured some bones in my back. The bones are all healed, so now I need to do some physical therapy."

First on Jenna Fischer's therapy list? Some ow-impact yoga with pregnant co-star and source of many great The Office quotes, Angela Kinsey.

"I don't know how I got roped into doing yoga with her, but my doctor heard that she was pregnant, and suggested some low impact exercise like yoga."

Mourners gathered Sunday to mark the life of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor, as four young men sat in Florida jail cells charged with his murder.

Those coming to pay respects at Taylor's viewing began arriving at Second Baptist Church in Miami over an hour before the public memorial opened.

The service Sunday came hours after a fourth man charged in the shooting death of Taylor appeared in court and, like his co-defendants, was denied bond.

Sean Taylor Suspects

Jason Mitchell, 19, has been charged with Sean Taylor's murder along with three other suspects - Eric Rivera, 17; Charles Wardlow, 18; and Venjah Hunte, 20.

All four face counts of unpremeditated murder, home invasion with a firearm or another deadly weapon and armed burglary. They will be transported to Miami.

Probable cause affidavits for Mitchell and Rivera say the two confessed to armed burglary. According to reports, Mitchell and Rivera admitted entering the home and said someone had a gun and shot Sean Taylor, but they didn't identify who. Police have said some of the young men confessed, but wouldn't elaborate.

Police said the four suspects in the Taylor killing were planning on a simple burglary, but it quickly turned bloody when they were startled to find him home.

Police remain tight-lipped about how the Sean Taylor murder suspects wound up at his home. The Miami Herald reported Mitchell cut the player's lawn and did chores at the house, while Taylor's sister, Sasha, dates Wardlow's cousin.

The Naples Daily News quoted Jason Mitchell's mother as saying that her son was at a birthday party at Taylor's home within the past two months.

Early Monday, Taylor and his longtime girlfriend, Jackie Garcia, were awakened by loud noises at his home. Within moments, someone broke through the bedroom door and fired two shots, one hitting Taylor in the upper leg.

Neither the couple's 18-month-old daughter, also named Jackie, nor Jackie Garcia (the niece of actor Andy Garcia) were injured in the break-in.

The bullet damaged the femoral artery in Taylor's leg, causing major blood loss. He never regained consciousness and died early Tuesday.

In the Washington Redskins' first game since the death of Sean Taylor, the defense fielded 10 men - one man short - for the first play from scrimmage, letting a void in the secondary honor their fallen teammate. The Redskins lost to Buffalo, 17-16.

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!

Photo of LC

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.
