Amid repeated reports that she and Chris Brown are sneaking around together, Rihanna says there is no need to keep her ex half a football field away.

Brown, who will be sentenced today after pleading guilty to assauling the "Umbrella" singer in February, is under court order not to communicate with her at all.

Moreover, he is not to come within 50 yards of her – and 10 yards if they're both at the same event. Rumors suggest the two have hooked up in NYC recently.

"If asked, we will tell the court that all that's necessary is a level-one order: That Brown not annoy, molest or harass her," Rihanna's lawyer Donald Etra said.

"No stay-away order was ever requested by Rihanna."

Could this legally clear the way for the reconciliation some believe has already begun in secret? It will be up to judge Patricia Schnegg to decide that issue.

At the last hearing, Schnegg said she'd consider Rihanna's request for a less-restrictive order against Chris Brown, which could allow the pair to be together.

Etra wouldn't comment on whether the singers are still romantically involved. Rihanna will not be attending the hearing. Brown is required to be there.

After pleading guilty to felony assault, Brown is expected to be sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community labor to be served in Virginia. He will also complete a year of domestic violence classes, and pay fines.

In exchange for the plea, he will avoid serving any time behind bars, and a second felony charge of making criminal threats is expected to be dropped.

Last month, Brown publicly apologized for the incident for the first time, saying, "I have told Rihanna countless times, and I am telling you today, that I am truly sorry and that I wasn't able to handle the situation differently and better."

Is Chris Brown's sentence fair?

The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski would like to simply be celebrating their engagement, but he finds himself being hit with allegations that he was not faithful - and was in two (!) relationships while filming the show.

Lindsey Johnson and Bethany Steffen both claim that Ed, a Chicago computer software consultant, was stringing them along while he was wooing Jillian on TV.

And that he continued to do so even after he and Harris got engaged.

Some reports have claimed Jillian Harris feels "betrayed" by her final rose recipient and that her relationship with Ed Swiderski has been "destroyed."

Not so, says the Canadian cutie.

“I am not destroyed!” Harris said in an interview. “There’s a little bit of anxiety that comes with this news, but I am absolutely not destroyed.”

Was - or is - Ed Swiderski two-timing Jillian Harris?

“What did he do wrong?” Jillian asks. “My big concern is with everything that happened after the day we got engaged, and after we got engaged he has been so open with me. He’s told me all of this, every text message and every phone call."

"I use his computer. I know that any communication he had with these girls after [The Bachelorette] was strictly platonic. I’m not worried about it."

Last month, Ed Swiderski talked about Lindsey Johnson: “When I left for this show we were not dating, but I certainly still had feelings for her.”

Yeah, right.

That's the company line, although the interview with Jessica Simpson in the September issue of Glamour was conducted before Tony Romo dumped her. Ouch!

Even then, she lamented her lifelong struggles with body image issues.

"When I was young, I would look at magazines and feel a lot of pressure," the alleged singer lamented. "As a child of 12, I would write things in my journal like, 'I am lying here and all I can think about is my stomach hanging over my underwear.'"

"That disturbs me even today! I was always disconnected from myself; there was this idea of perfection I couldn't ever get to. But all women struggle with insecurity, and everybody has something we don't like about ourselves."

After those "fat Jessica Simpson pictures" from earlier this year drew criticism, the star is psyched to host her own VH1 reality show, The Price of Beauty, which tracks her journey around the world in search of what people find beautiful and why.

"No matter how much money you spend - with all the products, the diets, the plastic surgery - in the end, women need to love themselves. There is no 'perfect' you," says Simpson, who admits getting Restylane to make her lips plumper.

She credits ex Tony Romo with helping her become more comfortable in her own skin: "Tony never ever places judgment," she says of her QB ex.

"You can just relax and feel beautiful. He's just that type of person."

While she did the interview before her split with Romo, who may or may not be banging Natalie Smith right now, she says, "If this article comes out and we're not together, I'd still love Tony, and he'd still be a huge part of who I am today."

One person hoping O.J. Simpson is even released from prison? Well, that's pretty much every person. But girlfriend Christie Prody doesn't want him set free!

The former Heisman Trophy winner was convicted last December on robbery, kidnapping and weapons charges and sentenced to 9-33 years in prison.

It's The Juice!

His attorneys on Monday argued before the Nevada Supreme Court that the former football star and two-time murderer should be released pending appeal.

"Christie Prody would not want to see him released because she is concerned that he might try to see her," her attorney, none other than Gloria Allred, said.

"She is concerned that he is dangerous and she fears for her safety."

Which is why you date freaking O.J. Simpson in the first place. He beat his first wife and killed the second? You'd think that would turn her off, but no.

A decision on O.J. Simpson's request for bail could come at any time. If it's granted, Christie Prody might want to get the f*%k out of dodge. Dude hasn't killed since '94.

Christie Prody was a fresh-faced 20-year-old when she met Simpson. Back then she told her family she didn't believe he'd murdered his ex-wife Nicole.

Over their 13 years together, however, their relationship became a bit violent, with numerous calls to 911 and allegations of drug and alcohol abuse.

Most recently, his daughter Arnelle brutally attacked both of them.

Prody hurt herself "falling at a gas station" awhile back, and on another occasion had both her legs broken by a speeding car that hit her. Not at all suspicious.

While a possible courtroom brawl is brewing between Summit Entertainment and Rachelle Lefevre, due to the latter's displeasure with being let go from the Twilight Saga, Peter Facinelli says the Eclipse cast is moving on.

By learning how to fight themselves!

“We start rehearsals tomorrow, the actor that plays Carlisle Cullen told OK! on Tuesday. "We have two weeks of rehearsal and then a week of fight training.”

Why the training? Are the rumors of a Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart relationship causing tension among the cast? Hardly.

Facinelli cites the movie's plot as the basis for impending fisticuffs.

"What happens in Eclipse is Victoria comes back and she builds an army of newborn vampires, which are freshly bitten vampires which are basically blood crazed and she’s trying to get this army to come after us so that she can get to Bella and so we team up with the werewolves to attack all these newly bitten vampires.”

As for what fans can expect in the third installment of this franchise, the actor said:

Eclipse has more action in it and so I’m excited to get in there and have Carlisle roll his sleeves up a little bit and get into fight stuff.”

It's been a good summer already for Facinelli. He plays Dr. Fitch Cooper on the Showtime hit Nurse Jackie.

American Idol just got a lot saner, and a lot less entertaining.

Following weeks of rumors about her departure and public contract negotiating, Paula Abdul has confirmed her exit from the top-rated show on television.

"With sadness in my heart, I've decided not to return to Idol," Abdul wrote on her Twitter page last night. "I'll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day one become an international phenomenon.

"What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me. I do, without any doubt, have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all."

A Former Judge

The show is now left with a trio of judges for season nine: Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi, who signed a new deal last week.

In response to Abdul's farewell, Fox released the following statement:

"Paula Abdul has been an important part of the American Idol family over the last eight seasons and we are saddened that she has decided not to return to the show. While Paula will not be continuing with us, she's a tremendous talent and we wish her the best."

Will you miss Paula Abdul on American Idol?

The break-up between Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush may have been tough on those involved - but it's been great for their random friends!

First, Brittny Gastineau spoke out about her pal's slow recovery from the relationship's demise.

Now, socialite Caroline D'Amore is using the opportunity to shill for her new movie. But not before she expresses her heartfelt sympathies for Kim, of course.

"I definitely don't think we'll be seeing Kim with anyone anytime soon," D'Amore told E! News. "Reggie was the major love of her life, and it's not going to be easy to just meet someone new."

Got any advice for the friend whose personal life you're exposing to the press, Caroline?

"Have fun, be with the girls and be young. Chill out. No one needs to have babies right now, anyway."

  • Reggie Free

D'Amore has appeared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and, naturally, will often show up on on Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami.

After all, she has a swimwear line to promote and a new movie to shill for.

D'Amore has a role in the upcoming horror film, Sorrority Row. She filmed scenes with Audrina Patridge for it and dished on that reality star, as well.

"She didn't do the diva thing," D'Amore said. "It was like when she was here, she was here, and she wasn't mentally anywhere else. It was a pleasure to work with her."

Is it too late to rename the series Pretty Betty?

As filming for ABC's Ugly Betty gets underway, the show has given its main character a serious makeover.

Played by America Ferrera, Betty Suarez has said goodbye to her braces and sayonara to her messy, curly hair.

In April, producer Silvio Horta warned fans about the impending new look. He said: “There’s going to be a progression in her look overall. It’ll still be Betty, but you’ll see some growth in that direction.”

That's for sure. Compare the before-and-after shots below:

For Dustin Diamond, September 29, the scheduled release date for his tell-all book, can't come fast enough. That's what those two chicks said about ... forget it.

The dirty former Saved By the Bell star, who has battled Wisconsin mortgage woes in the past, is now accused of owing money ... to the U.S. Department of Revenue.

Not a small amount either.

A tax lien filed in January in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin shows that the lewd sex tape star owes $21,015.62 in back taxes. That's a lot of "Save My House" t-shirts.

Yes. Screech is even more of a deadbeat than thought!

An Ozaukee County court clerk said that of August 1, it still hasn't been paid. Ultimately, he will face more legal action if he can't pay off the government.

Too bad Double-D was banned from the Saved By the Bell reunion, that would have probably paid something. Or at least gotten him a free tuna sandwich.

If you're going to spend $595 on sandals, you might as well wear them a lot!

Reality star and best-selling author Lauren Conrad definitely subscribes to that fashion tip, donning her towering Miu Miu tan leather sandals everywhere.

Below are just a few Lauren Conrad pictures showing her in the footwear. Notice how she pairs them with a variety of different dresses and looks.

If you can't afford it (and who can), you can at least buy some that are similar:

Stylish LC can do no wrong in her Miu Miu sandals - or anything!
