Apparently, Britney Spears is looking to turn over a new leaf. To make a new start.

Right, and The Hollywood Gossip is looking to quit writing about The Hills, embattled beauty queens, celebrity babies and random D-list "stars" who put out (then put out sex tapes).

A Real Head-Scratcher

Anyway. Britney Spears' Beverly Hills mansion is now back on the market as of Wednesday for $7.495 million, and the train wreck is even offering to sell the place fully furnished.

The 25-year-old mother of Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline bought the 9,000-square foot home for $7.2 million in December 2006, then put it up for sale last February.

Spears then took it off the market two months later after deciding to move back in following her rehab stint, which she claims was "bogus."

The Tuscan Villa-style abode, located in a posh gated community, includes six bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a gourmet chef's kitchen, a media room, and maids' quarters - just a tad bigger than our current celebrity news HQ.

Man, six bedrooms. That's a lot of walls. If they could talk... they'd be giving us the play-by-play of J.R. Rotem tagging Britney wheelbarrow style back in December.

The master suite (which Britney Spears may use a lot with new boyfriend Damon) boasts a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the grounds and a sparkling pool.

The "singer"'s Malibu home has also been on the market since November. It was initially listed for $13.5 million, but Spears has lowered the asking price to just under $12 million.

Maybe she can give Jamie Lynn Spears a discount.

No, Orlando Bloom won't bare his rear end in London's West End, much to the disappointment of fans buying tickets to his stage debut.

We know, fans. It's a terribly tragic travesty.

Orlando Bloom Picture

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 30, who recently announced he wanted to take a break from movies, hits the boards for the first time Thursday, starring in the David Storey play In Celebration.

Some Orlando Bloom fan sites claim that he will be getting naked onstage, much like a certain teenager and Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe, who got naked in his own stage debut, the play Equus.

NOTE: Due to rules imposed by our advertisers, we are unable to display the pic of Daniel Radcliffe naked.

NOTE #2: However, as a (big) consolation, we invite you to view Shemar Moore naked.

"I heard what they're saying," Orlando Bloom tells Britain's The Guardian. "But you've read the play. Where would I possibly get my clothes off in it? It's bizarre."

Find a way, man. Get nude. And get Keira Knightley in there with you. Such amazing chemistry there! It's a shame to waste it.

In the play, about three brothers who escape the mining life represented by their father, Bloom is at one point invited to take off his ... coat (HOT) ... but, sadly, that's the only disrobing in the production set in the gritty north of England.

He does, however, sport a new mustache for the role. Wonder how his ex, Kate Bosworth, feels about that. Probably so sick to her stomach that she just won't eat.

To some celebs, such as Kim Kardashian, Olivia Mojica and Paris Hilton, doggy style is just something you do to kill time... and make some money off sex tape sales.

To others (fortunately), it's more about fun, companionship and cuteness. Not to mention a fashionable accessory. Truly, little dogs are all the rage in Hollywood these days.

Let's take a look at a few stars and their furry friends. Below, Kristin Cavallari gives her pooch a lift during a morning outing in L.A. this week. While Lauren Conrad always melts our hearts, we'll say the same about K-Cav if we see a few more pictures like this one!

Also below (right), Jessica Simpson and her BFF and companion, Daisy, are seen at LAX airport in this selection exhumed from our archives of celebrity pictures.

Now here's the wonderful Jennifer Love Hewitt in The Hollywood Dog magazine with her puppy, and the pregnant Nicole Richie posing with her little Shih Tzu, Honeychild.

Lastly, we have Jake Gyllenhaal, apparently a big To Kill a Mockingbird fan, who has two dogs: Atticus Finch and Boo Radley. He's seen here with one of them.

Which celebrity dog pairing is your favorite?

Yesterday, we brought you a fun quiz, courtesy of a fellow celebrity news site, in which you had to identify a seriously f-i-n-e celebrity piece of ass. Literally.

If you haven't tested your skillz on that one yet, follow the fine ass link. We won't spoil the results by telling you who those seriously ultry buns belong to.

Today's trivia is a bit more straightforward… and inspired by the t-shirt donned by the youngster in question. We ask you, fans, who is the person in the celebrity photo below?

Is it Britney Spears in yet another hideous disguise? Is it her mystery Alcoholics Anonymous counselor, John Sundahl? Keira Knightley? Audrina Patridge from The Hills?

Who is this mystery celebrity out for a stroll and trying to keep a low profile? We think you can get this easy one. Follow the jump to find out.

Is Britney Spears already off the wagon?

Is the Pope Catholic? Is Lindsay Lohan a waifish harlot? Does George W. Bush have trouble using complete sentences?

Do bears $h!t in the woods? Are Family Guy quotes funny? Shall we continue making our point?

It seems obvious to us that Brit is hitting the bottle again. But MSN reports that the "rehabbed" star is indeed having trouble steering clear of alcohol, and that's not her only problem.

Britney Spears is "drinking heavily again, binge shopping and eating like there's no tomorrow," according to Star.

What's more, the singer is jeopardizing her cherished relationship with kid sister Jamie Lynn Spears thanks to her ongoing feud with their mother, Lynne Spears.

"On several occasions, I have seen her pouring alcohol into energy drink cans," a source told the tabloid, suggesting there's little chance we'll see Brit sober up anytime soon.

Says another insider: "Britney Spears requests that alcohol be served in carafes rather than in bottles. Once, a waitress made the mistake of bringing her a bottle. Britney grabbed her arm and told her angrily that she couldn't be seen with it."

Spears caused a scene at the L.A. club Joseph's June 25, stripping down to a purple bra and "dancing and singing her own music, which she brought in," an observer told Star.

She allegedly was also "brazenly flirting" with DJ Eric Cubiche, even though his fiancée, actress Jaime Pressly, was nearby. The seething star of My Name Is Earl, who gave birth to Cubiche's son in May, is reported to have "played it cool."

Britney Spears is also said to have been on a "major spending spree" and is eating so much that her washboard abs are just a memory.

Then there's the strife with her family. Says a friend:

"[Jamie Lynn Spears] and Britney have always been close, but Jamie Lynn thinks Britney is cruel, especially after all that their mom did for her. Jamie Lynn wants it to stop."

Poor Britney. What a train wreck. Well, at least she has Damon.

Victoria and David Beckham may be British tabloid royalty, but they're just starting to get big press "stateside."

So is Lucy Pinder. But for other reasons.

A Worried Fan

Soccer star David and Spice Girl wife Victoria are moving to L.A. this summer, a relocation so monumental that it's being captured by NBC cameras for a special airing July 16, entitled, Victoria Beckham: Coming to America.

Prior to the move, the couple spoke to W and revealed an unrehearsed charm that's sure to earn them many more fans in the U.S. Even more than this pic of David Beckham nude will get them.

From giant boobs to famous pals, to learning to smile for the media to dealing with scandals, the couple is ready to take on Beverly Hills... together. Excerpts below:

On how they met:
David Beckham: "I'm quite shy. I just sort of waved from the other side of the bar. I sort of said hello and then just went back to Manchester. I was quite upset and gutted."
Victoria Beckham: "I didn't really know who he was. I was never into football... He was always with his mom, dad and sister while a lot of the footballers were at the bar getting drunk."

"I could sense right from the start that David was a gentleman, and very family-oriented, which is important because I'm the same."

On knowing their callings at an early age:
David Beckham: "At school whenever the teachers asked, ‘What do you want to do when you're older?' I'd say, ‘I want to be a footballer.' And they'd say, ‘No, what do you really want to do, for a job?' But that was the only thing I ever wanted to do."
Victoria Beckham: "Everything revolved around dancing and singing lessons. I used to customize my school uniforms. I love clothes, hair and makeup. I've always been a girly girl."

THG NOTE: So has her BFF Katie Holmes. Until she went all robot.

On Victoria's plans to win over Americans:
Victoria Beckham: "I think people are really going to see me for the first time. I think they have this impression that I'm this miserable cow who doesn't smile. But I'm actually quite the opposite. When you're out there, they're trying to get pictures up your shirt, down your top... With all the flashes, it's as much as you can do to just find your car. I'm going to try and smile more for America."

THG NOTE AGAIN: Surely Tom Cruise can give her some pointers!

On dealing with rumors and celebrity gossip centering around the story that David Beckham had an affair three years ago:
Victoria Beckham: "I'm not going to lie. It was a really tough time. It was hard for our entire families... David and I got through it together. No one said marriage was going to be easy. Yes, there have been bumps along the road. But the fact is we've come out of everything we've been through stronger and happier. It's even better now than when we were first married. After all these years, we can just come home and have a laugh together."

John Krasinski doesn't need a woman who's well versed in all of the latest fashions. In fact, the girl next door would do just fine.

No, we're not talking about a nude Holly Madison from The Girls Next Door. Or Elisha Cuthbert from The Girl Next Door. We mean an actual girl next door, as in one in the real world. One who might wear a cardigan.

Asked by Glamour whether he'd be amenable to dating "a normal girl" like Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer), his crush on The Office, Krasinski, 27, replies:

"Yes, please! It's not about celebrity. It's all about, do you have that 'girl in a cardigan' in you. Gotta have that."

A woman with a relaxed sense of style would be a good match for the 27-year-old Newton, Mass., native, who told People in 2005 that he doesn't worry much about his own wardrobe.

"My main focus is to always try to be myself first, and then, hey, if I wear a cool jacket, that's a bonus," John Krasinski said.

You know, Britney Spears could learn a thing or 20 from that approach.

The License to Wed star, who was recently named one of People's Sexiest Men Alive, also says he doesn't feel pressure to act like his wry character, from The Office, Jim.

Mostly because, well, it sort of comes naturally.

"I would say I have a mellow way about me and a spontaneity that is similar to Jim's," he says, in contrast to his co-star/boss, Steve Carell.

John Krasinski, who dated his Office co-star Rashida Jones, is currently working on his feature film writing and directing debut, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. He also appears in George Clooney's upcoming football film Leatherheads, due out in December.

But, we can hear the masses asking collectively, "Damon who!?"

Could it be acclaimed actor Matt Damon? Or Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon? Lost creator Damon Lindelof? What about Damon, that weird gay guy in Mean Girls?

Crack That Whip

Who's to say? Sure as hell not this celebrity news site.

Us Weekly, though, is a better blog than we. Well, this time. We give credit where it's due.

After all, they (sort of) solved the mystery behind Britney Spears' new boyfriend.

His first name, apparently, is Damon.

Whatever the hell is last name is, he might as well change it to Stepdad.

He and Britney Spears were recently spotted playing in the pool and then going to church services with her two sons.

Damon carried Sean Preston, 22 months, into the church (while Mom held a sleeping Jayden James, 10 months) and then comforted the toddler when he started crying.

The Hollywood Gossip Note: * sniff *

It was a week of wining and dining for Britney and her mystery new man, which included a July 4 candlelit dinner at the Four Seasons' Windows Lounge in L.A.

Damon then slept over at her Beverly Hills pad. One thing led to another, we have to think. Right? We're talking about Britney Spears naked, and not in the pool this time.

On July 5, Brit and the no-neck chauffeur took in a showing of the musical Wicked (well, part of it, they left after 45 minutes) and, later, stopped for drinks at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont hotel, where Spears giggled, kissing Damon as he touched her face.

How long will the romance last? Will "Damon" tell all to London's The Sun in a month? How does Kevin Federline feel about it? We don't know. But we sure will keep you posted.

We now interrupt this increasingly Zac Efron-centered celebrity news publication to bring you a story about a new cast member on a popular television series.

Meredith Grey may have one more thing to worry about in the upcoming season of Grey's Anatomy. No, we're not talking about eating too little or whining too much.

Lovely Leigh

We're talking about actress Chyler Leigh joining the show as Lexie Grey, Meredith's half-sister and a new intern at Seattle Grace hospital.

Chyler Leigh, 25, will be a series regular, a rep for ABC Television confirms. She appeared in the last two episodes of Season 3. Lexie Grey's chemistry with Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) has already caused tension between him and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo).

  Hel-lo! Chyler Leigh might actually inspire us to watch Grey's Anatomy. Or not. But we'll at least look up more pictures of her on the Internet.

She previously starred in the short-lived series Girls Club, Reunion and That 80s Show, and appeared on The Practice and 7th Heaven. She starred in Not Another Teen Movie.

Leigh joins the cast on the heels of Isaiah Washington's dismissal from the show on June 9, when he was informed that ABC was not picking up his option to return to the hit series.

The Grey's cast, Chyler Leigh included, began filming the show's fourth season today after a two-month hiatus. The show returns with new episodes Thursdays in September.

Elsewhere in the Grey's Anatomy universe, the much-anticipated Kate Walsh spinoff, titled Private Practice and scheduled for Wednesdays this fall, added a new cast member in KaDee Strickland. Apparently it's quite the day for witty medical dramas!

The Hills returns soon, we were happy to learn from MTV today. The Season Three premiere of The Hills will take place Monday, August 13, at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

In addition to finally providing Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt with a reason to be on camera, the return of the hit reality series offers us another weekly date with Lauren Conrad.

Here are some great new Lauren Conrad photos released by the network as part of its promotional efforts for the upcoming third season of the surprise hit series ...

Isn't she lovely? For our full collection of Lauren Conrad photos, follow this link to our gallery. Our album of The Hills and Laguna Beach star is quite extensive!

A lot of unanswered questions surround The Hills return. What do you think will happen this season? Will the feud between Lauren and Spencer further drive her and Heidi apart? Will Whitney Port get the new job? And is Jason Wahler going to be back yet again?
