Jessica Simpson is getting back to her roots.

No, we're not talking about being a reality TV ditz.

Airport Hottie

The reputed singer and actress has begun recording a country album.

"I am a country girl," she said. "I grew up in Texas, and country music was what I listened to. I always wanted to wait until the time was right."

These boobs were made for giving country music a shot.

So why now? Well, what the hell else is there to do? Simpson's most recent flick, Blonde Ambition, was a complete bomb given only a limited theatrical release and 2006's Employee of the Month also blew failed to find a big audience.

Her last pop CD, 2006's A Public Affair, also sucked ass underperformed.

"Writing is a release for me," Jessica Simpson said of writing some of her own songs on the new record. "It's a way for me to tell my story... It's been a while since I have opened the book." We didn't actually know she could read.

In addition to the new country album, Simpson is also working on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo - if you know what we mean! We mean they're dating, and from his angle, it's not because of her brains or personality.

We really have very little idea who Dax Shepard is and how he continues to score with hot girls. But alas, the "actor," who turns 33 today, has apparently done it again, snaring a favorite hottie of The Hollywood Gossip staff.

Dax Shepard's supposed new girlfriend, Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars, Heroes and Gossip Girl fame, celebrated the new year together, sharing many a passionate kiss on the beach in Miami, Fla., yesterday and over the weekend.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard: A relationship destined to last.

Lovebirds Kristen and Dax simply could not hide their lust for each other as they repeatedly stopped to kiss while strolling on the water's edge. So hot and gross.

Shepard previously dated Kate Hudson, but that appears to have fizzled. We can only guess who's next. Just promise, Dax, that you'll stay away from Blake Lively.

The first celebrity wedding of the year is in the books.

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds were married on New Year's Day on a private island off Bora Bora in French Polynesia in front of 25 friends and family.

In a sunset ceremony on the beach Tuesday, Tracy Edmonds walked barefoot down the aisle to Gladys Knight's "Makings of You." The bride wore a custom-designed and form-fitting dress, while Murphy wore a cream suit and vest.

Among the guests were best man Johnny Gill, maid of honor Nicole Avant, matron of honor Julie Lev, as well as Edmonds' parents Jacqueline and George, her brother Michael, and Eddie Murphy's mother Lillian and brother Vernon.

Congratulations, Tracey Edmonds and Eddie Murphy!

Edmonds, 40, gave her bridesmaids gold and diamond earrings from XIV Karats in Beverly Hills, and Murphy, 46, gave his groomsmen D. Atlantis watches.

The wonderful wedding was designed by wedding coordinator Colin Cowie, who created a gazebo on the beach made out of 6,000 shells for the ceremony.

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds started dating last fall and were engaged in July. Prior to that, he was in a long-term relationship with Melanie Brown.

Tiffany Pollard, a.k.a. New York (the star of VH1's I Love New York) has reason to be optimistic as she rings in 2008 tonight in Miami's famed South Beach.

"I'm so in love," Pollard told Us Weekly of her engagement to season two's most handsome contestant and eventual winner, George Weisgerber, a.k.a. Tailor Made.

Bringing the Bling

Weisgerber was declared the winner in the emotional season finale last week, when Tiffany decided George was totally tailor made for her. You could just tell.

Celebrity news crews spotted Tiffany Pollard smiling, with George Weisgerber's arms wrapped around her, at Miami's Delano hotel on December 30.

Here's a photo of New York and Tailor Made at the nightclub Suite ...

George Weisgerber sure loves New York. Tiffany Pollard, that is.

The two announced their engagement at the end of the series, but won't be rushing into marriage, since Pollard is a traditional gal who likes to take it slow.

Showing she's got a firm grasp on grammar to go along with that hot body and bubbly personality, New York said of her Miami trip: "We are here for the New Year's."

There you have it.

Tessa Horst? Just a faint Bachelor memory.

Sepideh Haftgoli? A (Miss Iran play) thing of the past.

Doctor, U.S. Navy Lieutenant and very eligible hunk Andy Baldwin has moved on to greener pastures... in more ways than one. That's Donald Trump's second ex-wife, Marla Maples, that Baldwin is putting the moves on below. WTF!?

Andy Baldwin: Lookin' for The Donald's sloppy seconds with Marla Maples?

The couple was spotted looking awfully cozy at a skating rink in New York's Central Park - a rink that happens to bear the name of ... well, Donald Trump.

Heck, this guy gets around like Lindsay Lohan in Italy. Well, not that bad. But seriously now. What's next? Brad Womack getting his game on with Oprah?

Sorry, Randy Moss. Tom Brady thinks Gisele has a softer pair of hands than you, and is probably even more agile and limber ... if you know what we mean (we don't)!

Brady, the stud quarterback of the New England Patriots, led them to a perfect record of 16-0 this NFL season, while breaking the individual record for touchdown passes.

Smoldering Gisele

But seriously, knocking up Bridget Moynahan, only to leave her for Gisele Bundchen almost immediately after, has to stand as Tom Brady's top achievement of 2007.

Brady and his supermodel girlfriend Bundchen, below, enjoyed a fun celebration dinner together with friends at a New York City restaurant on Sunday night.

That's one fly tight end behind Tom Brady!

"Everyone is going to enjoy this one," the possible best quarterback ever said after the Patriots' 38-35 victory against the New York Giants Saturday evening, which clinched a perfect season for New England. "It happens once every 35 years."

More impressively, however, we're guessing Tom Brady sees Gisele Bundchen nude at least once every 3-5 hours. Now that's a scoring record to get excited about!

The celeb gossip we accepted as fact for so long yet could not officially confirm has arrived: Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere are totally a couple!

Having previously denied a relationship, the two Heroes stars are now being considered an item by various celebrity news sources.

Jailbait

"Hayden's mom adores Milo. She thinks he's so cute," a family friend tells People. "She tells her friends that he's her boyfriend. She's very proud."

On a December trip to N.Y. City, Milo Ventimiglia hung out with the entire Panettiere family.

"He's even met her grandparents. He fits in perfectly with the family. Milo jokes around with her little brother, Jansen," a source dishes. "They're buddies."

When the two hotties are together as a couple, "they're affectionate and they're very comfortable around each other. He really takes care of her, even down to the little things like giving her a back massage and going with her to work."

A rep for the smoking hot teen actress responded: "We do not respond to inquiries from the media regarding Ms. Panettiere's personal life."

Since grinding and cozying up at an Emmy Awards after-party in September, the two have dodged rumors that they were dating - even though, by November, they were clearly closer than ever, being together publicly at benefits and other events.

When asked just before Thanksgiving about the reports of a possible romance with Hayden Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia laughed, then paused and said: "She and I are close friends. It's only natural that people are going to couple us together."

As for age gap between Milo and Hayden - he is 30, she is 18 - the friend adds, "At first it doesn't seem like there's a big age difference, but then you do see it... He's more proper and reserved, and she's still playful and very girly."
