Free Britney

Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.

...On Law & Order, that is.

Yes, we deliberately misled you in the headline above, and apologize. We wanted to facetiously convey that Mr. Chase had gone Mel Gibson on us, but that is just plain false. This is an acting role, and he is clean. [THG NOTE: For actual celebrity mug shots, please visit our album]

The Hollywood Gossip lives in the present, bringing you the juiciest and most absurd celebrity news each and every day. But that doesn't mean there aren't days when we long for the past... the days when men were men, when the CW was still the WB, when Britney Spears wasn't married to that ass bag K-Fed and Lindsay Lohan was just a nice young actress trying to make it in this world.

The newest addition to our Classic Celebrity Pictures gallery is none other than the once-fabulous Katie Holmes. It seems hard to believe that the better half of TomKat and the mother of fake baby Suri was once the sweet, normal-looking girl who captured our hearts on the hit TV series Dawson's Creek. See below.

The Hollywood Gossip has to come out and say it: We love Rachel Bilson. That was tough to get off our chest. It's tough, proclaiming our unabashed affection for any celebrity. But sometimes even we have to go down that road.

Rachel is probably the cutest thing in Hollywood right now... at least if you aren't counting celebrity babies. Below, she is seen going to the nightclub Social in Hollywood, Calif.

Our dear friends at the Hollywood Grind and the journalists at CNN are both reporting an interesting piece of news about Nicole Richie.

The Simple Life star and daughter of singer Lionel Richie has been getting a lot of grief over her food aversion in recent months. Some might say she looks a bit thin. Skeletal, even. The way one envisions a malnourished, third-world refugee.

Rocker Pete Doherty is out of his (reportedly) successful stint at court-ordered rehab, and the British tabloids are already buzzing that the crazy recovering drug addict is going to marry his supermodel fiancee, Kate Moss, in the very near future.

We've heard this story before, with Pete bragging to some of his pals that he was going to marry Kate, his on-again, off-again girlfriend/fiancee, during one of their prior reconciliations.

F--k the penny... the amazing Kevin Federline is making good on his promise to do more charity work in a far more important way: by nixing one song, "PopoZao," from his upcoming debut CD Playing With Fire.

According to MSNBC, the song is being replaced by a duet with wife Britney Spears called "Crazy." This is not to be confused with the hit "Crazy" from one of Britney's first two albums. We can't recall which CD it's on, but we sure can recall how insanely hot Britney was in those days. *Sigh*

Mel Gibson is supposedly on the road to sobriety, but we had no idea that hanging out in bars is one of the 12 steps.

Maybe he's just putting his self-control to the ultimate test. The troubled actor and director was spotted in an Austin, Tx., bar Friday night hanging out until 2:30 a.m. -- and according to a witness, he was "only drinking water" and not flirting with women.

For the second time in less than a month, former Laguna Beach star and current meathead extraordinaire Jason Wahler has been arrested.

TMZ reports that "the LAPD arrested Jason Wahler on Friday for misdemeanor battery and set his bail at $20,000." He was released Saturday afternoon.

The Hollywood Gossip is proud to bring you Tale of the Tape, in which we break down prospective matchups within the celebrity world that you might never have considered. Because they are pointless, and above all, not real.

Last week, we broke down a three-way fight between Sean Penn, Sean Paul and Sean Preston Federline. Our current match-up features an ex-wife of one of the above. Can you guess who? This Tale of the Tape has actually been brewing for over 2,000 years. Or at least since we thought up this idea 10 minutes ago.

A picture is worth a few hundred words, as they say. In this one, Nicole Richie and boyfriend Brody Jenner take the plunge on Splash Mountain at Disneyland, where the much-talked-about, extremely annoying 25-year-old celebrated her birthday. The lovebirds appear to be having a blast, but we can't say the same for the dude behind them, who was apparently taken aback by Richie's alien-like figure.
