Looking distraught - likely over the incarceration of husband Blake Fielder-Civil - singer Amy Winehouse took comfort in a special fan at her concert yesterday in Blackpool, England. The young fan showed up in a Winehouse-style beehive. Yay!

You've got to admire a youngster for trying to walk in her role model's shoes. The only thing making this kid's Amy Winehouse impression subpar - a lack of tattoos, smeared makeup, blood and track marks from repeated heroin injections.

With so much entertainment news to report on - from Kyla Ebbert getting naked to DeAnna Pappas getting rejected - we've combined a pair of celebrity baby announcements into one post:

First, congratulations are in order for Scott Baio and his fiancee Renee Sloane. The pair received an early Christmas present when the baby that was expected in December popped out on November 2.

The healthy baby girl reportedly weighed in at five pounds, ten ounces.

Also, it appears as though a Sex and the City star has been having intercourse in real life: Chris Noth is expecting a child with girlfriend Tara Wilson.

While Noth is busy filming the Sex and the City movie, he did report that the upcoming baby will be a boy. Let's hope he finds his own Carrie Bradshaw one day!

You won't see Hayden Panettiere nude in the pages of the latest GQ... but you will see a cool interview and some amazingly hot photos of the Heroes actress.

Below, Hayden discusses the fall of Britney Spears, her relationship with Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia, girl-on-girl action rumors, and much, much more ...

GQ: When will you become the latest screwed-up girl in Hollywood?
Hayden Panettiere: Never, never. Cross our fingers.

GQ: We can't schedule it for your 21st birthday or anything?
Hayden Panettiere: You can't schedule rehab for me. And I don't think you can schedule any DUIs. I think I'm going to be one of those boring girls.

GQ: Will you at least go into a gas-station bathroom without shoes on?
Hayden Panettiere: No, that's disgusting. I've walked around other places maybe without my shoes on, but not bathrooms.

GQ: Tell us about your couple of years, since Heroes began.
Hayden Panettiere: This business turns life upside down. For some strange reason, I've become one of the targets of the paparazzi. Things get crazy.

GQ: It seems that we're pushing these young women toward meltdowns.
Hayden Panettiere: Absolutely. Britney Spears, for example. That girl was the epitome of beauty when I was younger. And we built her up and just ripped her down, put every aspect of her life under a microscope. Probably made 90 percent of the stuff up along the way. I can't even imagine if I had it like she does.

GQ: Well, things are much better for you. You're on a hit TV show. When are you going to ask NBC for the really big bucks?
Hayden Panettiere: Riiiight? I don't know! I wanna ask. We'll see.

GQ: Look, you're the biggest star on NBC. You need a million an episode.
Hayden Panettiere: I would feel bad if I got a million an episode.

GQ: It worked for the Friends, you know.
Hayden Panettiere: Dude, they got Porsches. We got a poker set!

GQ: What's the craziest rumor you've read about yourself?
Hayden Panettiere: Well, now that I'm single, it's like I'm dating every male I'm standing next to â€" and possibly every female.

GQ: You had to figure the lesbian rumor was coming.
Hayden Panettiere: Actually, that is pretty funny.

GQ: If someone were to put you together with a leading man, who would it be?
Hayden Panettiere: It could be anyone - Leo DiCaprio to Justin Timberlake - or any girl. You want to make me a lesbian? That's totally fine with me.

GQ: Okay. Well, who would be good?
Hayden Panettiere: Umm, let's see. We could do a love affair with Angelina Jolie. We could do... Oh gosh, there are so many beautiful girls out there. Charlize Theron. Oh, my God. Kate Beckinsale is gorgeous. Jessica Alba!

GQ: And you're not dating your Heroes costar Milo Ventimiglia, which is the celebrity gossip that's flying around most frequently about you?
Hayden Panettiere: No, I'm not. I love my castmates, and I adore Milo Ventimiglia. He's awesome, but we're easy targets. We're both young, and he's one of the only people on the show not married with children.

The Hollywood Gossip has been blowing up with people weighing in on Brad Womack and his shocking no-decision on the season finale of The Bachelor.

Last night, Brad faced the music in the form of both Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas, as well as all of America, to answer questions on his inactions.

Despite feeling "misled" by Brad Womack, Jenni Croft said she's disappointed in how Womack did the same to DeAnna Pappas, especially giving her a ray of hope just as he dropped the "but" and broker her heart. Nice one, Brad.

Jenni Croft says Brad should have given someone a chance, even in the form of dating. DeAnna Pappas still seems confused, angry... and into Womack.

Brad Womack then arrives to a mix of applause and boos. He says that he made his decision because he didn't want to make false promises to the girls.

  • Jenni Croft, Brad Womack
  • DeAnna Pappas, Brad Womack

Neither Jenni Croft (left) or DeAnna Pappas did it for Brad Womack.

We learn that Brad actually asked the network fly DeAnna Pappas' father out for the final ceremony, so Brad could ask for her hand in marriage - but his gut told him something was wrong when he went to buy the ring!

Jenni Croft rips Brad Womack for not at least giving either woman a chance and he says it "hurts deeply" to have Jenni lose respect for him.

Brad says to DeAnna that he thinks about her every single day, and it sounds like maybe he might be going to throw us for yet another loop by taking her back!

DeAnna hints that she would accept such a chance... and Womack replies that he's "very confident" in his decision, crushing her once again.

DeAnna Pappas can't hold back and cries to Womack, telling him that "[You're] the one person that I trusted most out of all of this, and you broke my heart."

Brad Womack's response: "I thought I was taking the high road." But was he?

Dr. Jan Adams, the Los Angeles plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West's mother, Donda West, one day before she passed away, has kind of broken his silence and spoken to People about the events surrounding West's death.

The full interview with Jan Adams can be found in the latest issue of the magazine, which hits newsstands Friday. Only excerpts are available now.

Although he refused to speak on the actual cause of death "out of respect" for her, Adams denies that the surgery on Donda West was rushed.

"I find that offensive and sort of unfair," says Adams, who had a warrant out for his arrest before showing up in court for another unrelated case last week. "I'm thorough and I do my job well."

Several people might take issue with that statement. But as for his LONG, LONG list of legal problems and malpractice suits, Adams seems unworried.

"When people say 'plastic surgery' they think of me," he says. "These suits don't represent bad plastic surgery, but a bad decision in terms of choice of patient."

Does that when we think of bad driving, and think of Britney Spears, it doesn't mean bad driving, but rather a bad decision in terms of choice of driver?

In any case, Adams was also supposed to appear on Larry King Live this week but bailed at the last second at the urging of the West family, TMZ reports.

Jan Adams appeared after the show's first commercial break, at which point he politely told King he would not speak: "I came to talk about things in the press that aren't accurate about me. But I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the West family and they've asked me not to go on."

Later, Alan Tenenbaum, an attorney for Dr. Adams, explained that he received a letter from attorneys representing the West family, asking him not to appear.

Jan Adams shows up on Larry King Live... then bolts.

The "deteriorating financial condition" of Michael Vick has prosecutors out to secure nearly $1 million now in funds set aside specifically for care of the pit bulls seized from his dogfighting operation, ESPN reports.

The federal government asked Judge Henry Hudson to issue a restraining order that essentially would freeze $928,000 to fulfill Vick's legal obligation to cover costs of caring for the dogs and finding homes for them.

Michael Vick is looking at a prison term of up to five years when he is sentenced December 10 on a federal dogfighting conspiracy conviction. He voluntarily turned himself in and began serving his prison term as of early Monday.

As part of his plea, Vick agreed to restitution for the care and placement of the 54 pit bulls confiscated from his "Bad Newz Kennelz" property. A number of issues threaten Vick's ability to make good on the agreement:

  • A lawsuit by Wachovia Bank claiming Vick and others defaulted on a $1.3 million loan for a wine store.
  • Royal Bank of Canada's lawsuit seeking payment for default on a $2.5 million credit line.
  • A lawsuit by 1st Source Bank of South Bend, Ind., seeking at least $2 million for loans involving a rental car business.

Michael Vick's troubles began when a drug investigation of his cousin in April turned up dogs and equipment used in dogfighting.

This summer, Vick and three other co-defendants pleaded guilty to dogfighting and conspiracy charges. Vick, suspended indefinitely by the NFL, admitted to helping kill 6-8 pit bulls and supplying money for gambling on dogfights.

The four men also face state felony charges. Vick has been charged with two state felony counts, punishable by prison - beating, killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and engaging in or promoting dogfighting.

The amazing Mike Tyson checked himself into Arizona's infamous Tent City Jail to serve his one-day sentence on drug charges stemming from earlier this fall.

The jail is an open-fair facility that is located near a dog pound and junkyard, and where the inmates wear jail-issue pink underwear and striped jumpsuits!

The newest Mike Tyson mug shot: So sexy in pink!

The former boxing champion and frequent criminal, who might be more insane than O.J. Simpson and Michael Vick combined (although he hasn't killed any people or dogs) pled guilty in September to myriad drug charges.

Mike Tyson pled to one count of felony cocaine possession and one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, and will be on probation for three years.

Kevin Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, is speaking out about a recent report that Britney Spears has hired a private investigator to dig up dirt in their ongoing custody battle.

"I think that if that is what they need to do, or have to do, to have at it," said Kaplan. "I don't think it will, in any way, be a good use of funds. But I can't stop that from happening."

Mark Vincent Kaplan said it would be a waste of time for them to follow around K-Fed.

"I don't think he would be concerned about it, and I don't think he has to change anything he is doing in order to address that," the attorney added.

Meanwhile, Britney Spears' attorney, Anne Kiley, revealed Monday that Spears â€" who has been banned from driving with her kids in the car â€" has decided to hire a driver to avoid any dangerous incidents with the paparazzi.

Although Mark Vincent Kaplan said he hasn't seen proof that Britney Spears, 25, has hired a driver or read Kiley's statement, he said that "anything that puts the children in a car that reduces the risk ... I am all for that."

Kaplan said his client, Federline, tries his best not to take his kids out in front of the press: "He's pretty good about keeping the kids at home with him unless there is a compelling reason they need to be somewhere."

Hard to argue with that logic. Unless you're Britney.

It's been a tough day for Britney Spears, who we also learned lost her virginity to Reg Jones at age 14. But she's got George Clooney in her corner! The star commented on the celebrity news media following Britney:

"You look at the footage of Britney running that red light - there's eight guys with cameras at night in the middle of the street. There are no rules now," he told ET. "It's getting to a point where people that are not involved are getting hurt."

"What they're doing is dangerous and illegal," George Clooney added. "They are not trying to just catch me doing something stupid; they are trying to create something stupid. You don't get to break all these laws and then say, 'I'm just doing my job.' The guys that commit all these crimes are rewarded for it."

Victoria's Secret angel Miranda Kerr left Diavolina in L.A. on Monday night with her arm wrapped around ... say what!? ... greasy oil heir Brandon Davis.

When Miranda Kerr spotted members of the celebrity news media, she broke off and walked the other way. Guess what they always say about sleeping with a fat, Greasy Bear is true - it's all fun until your friends find out.

Miranda Kerr and Brandon Davis: Now that's a strange couple for you!

We're guessing this means the demise of Cheyenne Tozzi (a.k.a. Koala Bear), the Aussie model who Brandon Davis was somehow shagging earlier this year.

As for Kerr, she had reportedly been seeing Orlando Bloom for a few months, and was spotted apartment hunting together with the hunky star back in March.

Another wrinkle: Bloom was reportedly backstage this past week to cheer on Miranda Kerr at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The plot thickens!
