After stating late last week that she has seen Suri Cruise, Penelope Cruz has since done a complete 180 and is refusing to talk about the baby anymore.

"I'm not going to talk about that anymore. I answered that yesterday and I'm not going to talk about it in detail because I really protect the people that I love," Cruz said of Cruise.

Cradling Suri Cruise

Cruz, who dated Tom Cruise for three years following their horrendous film together (Vanilla Sky) said Thursday the supposed evil spawn of TomKat was not only real, but one of the most beautiful babies she'd ever seen in her whole life.

But in her most recent interview, Penelope called her outburst of Suri details a lapse in judgment, and refused additional comment.

"It's important to keep living life as an observer and not just feel like you're being the thing observed because then you start looking at yourself from the outside instead of really alert... I forget people are looking at me in a situation like that, like yesterday," she said.

She also forgets, apparently, that Suri is not real. Just look at the poll, people! The fans have spoken. Please vote (above, right) if you haven't already! Tell us what you think!

We knew the Mel Gibson saga was weird, but this one surprised even the perpetually inquiring, amused minds at T.H. Gossip.

Available for free by following this link is a ringtone that reenacts Gibson's drunken, belligerent anti-Semetic wrath as showcased so wonderfully during his arrest on Friday.


The "Mel in Malibu" ringtone is the first in a series of absurd ones being developed by National Lampoon. One can only assume that future ringtones to be developed and marketed include:

  • Tom Cruise declaring his undying love for Katie Holmes
  • Kevin Federline rapping at the Teen Choice Awards (even though it's serious, this is quite possibly more ridiculous than anything else)
  • Lindsay Lohan panting, sweating, desperately trying to catch her breath (while suffering from exhaustion and all)
  • Peter Cook apologizing to Christie Brinkley
  • Nicole Richie projectile vomiting
  • Paris Hilton...

Come on. This is just too easy.

Move over Leah Remini.

Step aside, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Penelope Cruz Picture

Believe it or not, there's been another alleged Suri Cruise sighting.

Penelope Cruz, the 32-year-old Spanish actress who used to date Tom Cruise, says she, too, has laid eyes on his possibly fictitious baby daughter. Cruz did not offer many details of the meeting, but praised little Suri as a special baby.

"She's really beautiful. She's one of the most beautiful babies I've ever seen," the actress said in London, where she was attending the premiere of her new movie, Volver.

Suri was allegedly born to Cruise and his fiancee, Katie Holmes, in Los Angeles on April 18. She has yet to be seen in public, leading many to question whether she is even real.

The Spanish actress, who co-starred with Tom in 2001's absolutely awful Vanilla Sky, and also dated him for three years thereafter, wouldn't give any more details about the unveiling. Possibly because there is no baby, and Cruise is getting everyone he knows to lie for him -- even stooping so low as to beg his ex-girlfriend. But that's just the Gossip's humble opinion.

Again, we call upon the fans. Tell us what you believe in our poll (top right). Is Suri Cruise a farce, or just being protected by private parental units? This is your chance to weigh in. At the time of this blog, 335 of you have spoken... and the results speak volumes.

Suffice it to say, this has not been the best week for Mel Gibson.

In addition to his alcohol problems, the actor/director clearly has some pent-up rage against the world's Jews, and he apparently doesn't particularly care for homosexuals either. But according to, Mel is close with the law enforcement community. Unless, of course, they happen to be doing their jobs, and pull him over for driving double the speed limit. Drunk. In which case, he belligerently threatens them.

Good Old Mel

In any case, TMZ has turned up a video shot by Extra in which Gibson is shown alongside Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca. On the tape, the actor talks about his close relationship with the Sheriff's Department and is praised by its top official. Gibson served as spokesman at an event for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Star Organization (LASSO), a foundation that gives scholarships to the children of fallen deputies.

"I was late in coming here today and I think I almost got a ticket," Gibson jokes on the video, while appearing surprisingly sober.

The Sheriff called Mel "a wonderful man," and during the interview, Gibson talked about how one particular deputy would come by his home every few weeks.

"Officer Friendly pops around and just checks to see how things are. He just has a cup of coffee for ten minutes and hits the road. All my friends are cops… I get on with them."

Sure. Meanwhile, one of the stars of Gibson's new movie, Apocalypto, has come to the director's defense, saying the recent DUI arrest / anti-Semitic rampage does not represent the Mel he knows.

Mauricio Amuy Tenorio, a former model who stars as a Mayan chief in the film, said in an interview that the Gibson scandal has taken him by complete surprise.

"I don't have the right to judge what he did," he said, adding that he's never heard anti-Semitic remarks from Gibson on the set. "I don't want to say that he's anti-Jewish."

You don't have to, Mauricio. He already did a pretty good job of it!

In case you thought that we were lying about Ron Jeremy hanging out with K-Fed and his clique in Vegas... here's a picture to prove it.

Ron Jeremy Side View

The Gossip would never tell a lie. Trust us. In any case, what more really needs to be said about the picture above? Not a whole lot. Except for the fact that Ron, being an adult film star, may very well have boned Kevin's mom.

Shifting gears, we have learned that the deadbeat spouse of Britney Spears -- despite never working a day in his life, and achieving fame only through mooching off his immensely hot, talented wife -- is already looking to add "actor" to his illustrous career resume.

In gearing up for his performance on the Teen Choice Awards on August 20, Federline told reporters that he would love to be in a movie.

"I've already been offered a couple of scripts. The most interesting one was a role as a drug dealer, starring Ben Affleck's brother (Casey). I was supposed to audition, but I got really sick and couldn't make it," he said.

"Sick," he says. Translation: Stoned.

Hilary Duff likes her image as a good, wholesome girl. But only to a point.

The starlet, in an interview with Elle magazine, sought to distance herself from claims that she's been too well behaved during a two-year relationship with boyfriend Joel Madden, 27, the frontman of the band Good Charlotte.

Duff, Hilary

"It's hard having a boyfriend who's older because people just assume. But [virginity] is definitely something I like about myself," Duff said.

But Hilary, whose mom described her as a "very chaste young woman" in the same article, denies she ever discussed her virtues since she's dated Madden.

"The thing is that I didn't say that. I wouldn't say that. I don't know how [the writer] got that out of what I said," said the 18-year-old singer and actress, who has totally confused the Gossip as to who said what, or what the hell she's even talking about.

According to Hilary, it's not something that she talks about or wants people to focus on. Nor is her sex life even appropriate to think about, dammit!

"Whose business is that?" she bristles.

During the interview, Duff was also quoted as revealing her deep thoughts on doing it, stating that her position doesn't mean she hasn't thought about sex, because everybody she knows has had it and like every teen, she wants to fit in. But when they talk about it, she says, it doesn't sound special, like she would imagine it to be.

Good for Hilary, sticking to her guns. Sorry, Joel. Looks like there will be no Duff in the buff for some time. Although Duff diving (if you will) may not count -- we'll have to get some clarification on that at a later time.

The amazing Britney Spears and her gold-digging, dead-weight spouse plan to launch a new magazine, numerous online sources report.

Hottest Britney Spears Picture

Spears wants to publish "the real deal" about their lives and relate other celebrity news, too. Speaking to Steppin' Out magazine, Kevin Federline explained their idea for The Real Deal.

"It's not just us. Everybody has been lied about in the tabloids. Everybody has false truths and false images and false stuff perceived on them. Maybe not as much as me and my wife get. But everybody has it. I think a magazine like that, would attract all the stars. I think they would want to go to that magazine and tell the truth! I'm not kidding. This is something I want to do for real," Federline stated.

Sounds like a good plan, but the Gossip has come up with a few alternate names should the Federline family opt for something other than The Real Deal:

  • Spears Sun-Sentintel
  • Deadbeat Daily Dispatch
  • The Trailer Trash Times
  • Nymph & Narc News

Thoughts? Anyway, K-Fed, who recently traveled to Las Vegas for work (what an odd concept that must be for the freeloading jackass), was filming his "Lose Control" video in Sin City while wife Britney Spears hung out and his mom partied with Ron Jeremy. Seriously.

On Thursday night, Federline, Spears and their 10-month old son, poor Sean Preston, hit the restaurant Tao at the Venetian with a group of friends.

Federline, who will perform "Lose Control" at the Teen Choice Awards on August 20, stayed to celebrate after the video wrapped and Spears, who is pregnant again and expecting the couple's second child this fall, was there to support her deadbeat man.

When was the last time Nick Nolte was in the news? Not recently, but he can thank Mel Gibson. Who probably hates him and wishes he would die a slow, painful death. But no matter. The reason for our latest Photo Finish segment? Both of these fine, upstanding citizens were busted for driving under the influence on the same stretch of California Highway 1, better known as the Pacific Coast Highway. Their respective mug shots appear below.

  • Nick Nolte mug shot

Good Lord, Nick! Strangely enough, Mel looks significantly happier to be there, yet it was he who threatened police and made a littany of inflammatory remarks about how much he hates Jews. This one's too close to call. Who wins top Malibu Mug Shot Honors in your opinion?

As we discussed yesterday, everyone is chiming in about Mel Gibson. The latest individual being lovable Scrubs star Zach Braff, who claims in his official blog that he wants his money back from Bird On A Wire.

  • Mel Gibson Smirks
  • Zach Braff Pic

The 31-year old actor, who is Jewish, was probably less than thrilled about Gibson's anti-semetic tirade last Friday.

But, if it's any consolation, evidently Mel hates gays too, and probably a whole host of other ethnic groups we just don't know about yet.

Braff, whose blog also talks about his new myspace page and some of his musical interests, has reportedly been laying low since his difficult breakup with singer and actress Mandy Moore. He will be back on the set of Scrubs when the quirky sitcom kicks off its sixth year.
