With a high-five for a young singer and a hug for as many girls as she could reach, First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama continued her trip to London today with an inspirational visit to a group of high school teens.

At the all-girl Elizabeth Garret Anderson Language School, Michelle delivered her first major address of the European tour, then turned to some of the performers who had entertained her and embraced all those onstage.

Here's the wife of Barack Obama dressed fashionably as always and spreading the love in the form of a high-five with a lucky British high-schooler ...

According to the Chicago Tribune, Michelle has officially become one of the fab four of the political fashion world in the modern era - joining the elite group of Jacqueline Kennedy, French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Princess Diana.

Obama already has established her individuality through her fashion choices, but with a self-assurance and far-reaching influence similar to her predecessors.

As a supermodel, Kathy Ireland was used to seeing pictures of herself retouched to hide her flaws. But a photo of the one-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue staple at home recently took her breath away - and not in a good way.

"I didn't recognize the person I saw," said one of the hottest and most successful cover girls of the '80s and '90s, who went on to become a hugely successful CEO. "I saw someone who looked overstressed, overwhelmed and overweight."

Carrie Fisher Pre-Weight Loss

In her latest book, Real Solutions for Busy Moms, Kathy Ireland talks about how mothers in particular tend to put everybody else's needs before their own.

Case in point: she had put on 25 pounds without even realizing it.

Surely Meghan McCain and others can relate. It's not a problem if you aren't rail thin, but sometimes you let yourself go. So what did Kathy do about it?

Kathy Ireland then, now ... and way back then.

"I was not making enough time to take care of me," says Ireland, 46, a mother of three kids and CEO of Kathy Ireland World Wide, a $1.4 billion design empire, and who also runs a mentoring program for single teen mothers.

To get back on track, Ireland enlisted the help of a friend, who happens to be a personal trainer and nutritionist. Thanks to healthier food choices, including cutting down on snacking and desserts, plus three exercise sessions a week.

Does that mean she's ready to rock a bikini, Valerie Bertinelli style?

"No, that's not my goal," says Ireland, who prefers to wear business suits at her job. "I want to be healthy, to be there for my husband and my kids."

Once again, Shanna Moakler and Travis Barker have called it quits.

This time, though, amid allegations that an affair with Gerard Butler was the basis for their break up, Moakler is speaking out.

The former beauty queen has taken to her MySpace blog to rail against Barker and the endless insults that have been flying her way. To wit:

"Just so there is no confusion or 'source' to attack my character, I am saying my side," Shanna writes. "Travis and I were very much together in September when the horrific [jet crash] happened. Not only did I fly to Georgia, I stayed by his side the entire stay and also for the bus ride home to L.A. I think any human being with a heart ... would do the same."

After the couple returned to Los Angeles and Barker was hospitalized...

"I came across numerous romantic emails with MANY other woman - some famous, some I personally knew - all heart breaking... It was a painful time that no one, unless they had lived it, has the right to judge. Any actions I may or may have not done after this time mean nothing."

(Translation: I totally banged Butler.)

Overall, Moakler writes she has  "tried to always put the lives and thoughts and feelings of my children first. I am by no means an angel, and I have made many mistakes, but a woman can only turn her cheek so many times."

Moakler added that the entire ordeal is "sad and I wish it had been left behind closed doors. I am a human being and the bashing has taken its toll. Hope you're all happy."

As you try to hold back your tears, readers, relive this couple's roller coaster relationship below. Click on each image to enlarge...

With Paris Hilton having been reduced to lapping up Lauren Conrad's sloppy seconds, it's time for another member of this esteemed family to step into the celebrity gossip spotlight.

Come on down, Barron Hilton!

The 19-year old drunk driver told Page Six this week that he wants to establish a music career.

"I want to be an international singer-songwriter,” Hilton said. “I’m sick of all the Hilton stuff, where all anyone cared about was whether I was doing coke in the bathroom or how many [bleeps] I was sleeping with. I’m done with partying and traveling. It’s time to get this [bleep] started."

Silly, Barron. You make it sound as though anyone has cared about anything you've ever done.

The youngest Hilton sibling also told the newspaper that he's developing a reality show with Viacom.

"It’s gonna be like The Hills, but real. A lot of that stuff is pre-setup or re-setup. This is gonna show the meetings, the production side, the recording side... I just want people to say, 'Wow, this song really moved me, or made me cry.'"

This story just made us cry. Does that count?

Nearly two months after the brutal attack that left her unconscious and him in handcuffs, it's still unclear if Rihanna and Chris Brown have reconciled.

They haven't been seen together in public, nor have they been hanging out since he was seen jet skiing like a tool at Diddy’s Miami mansion last month.

In mid-March, it was rumored that they were sort of broken up again. Or at least taking a break (whatever that means) as his felony arraignment nears.

But another, public reconciliation may be in the works yet. Rumor has it that none other than Oprah is trying to them on her show - at the same time!

Oprah's camp denies this, but sources say she has secretly been talking to Rihanna for weeks. She also reportedly told her not to get back together with him.

Rihanna, however, apparently wants Chris Brown by her side if she appears on Oprah's show. She allegedly wants a public apology as well during the show.

"She's been having second thoughts about being back together," a source says. "Going on Oprah to tell the world how sorry he is will help make up her mind."

If there's any truth to this story, wow, talk about awkward. We just hope that Dr. Phil and Gloria Allred and Octomom find some way to cash in on it as well.

Bridget Moynahan is reportedly furious with Gisele Bundchen after the supermodel boasted about her new role as stepmother to the actress' son.

The Brazilian beauty married Tom Brady in February. They have been together since he split from longtime ex-girlfriend Moynahan back in 2006.

Ice Cream Cones

Moynahan announced that she was pregnant with Tom's child, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, now 17 months, just weeks after the two split.

Bundchen recently gushed in Vanity Fair that she has a great relationship with the boy, even claiming she felt as if he was "100 percent" her child.

Gisele probably only meant that in the sense that she is wholly committed to her role as a stepmother to John, but the model's comments were not received favorably by Moynahan, according to a report in the New York Post.

A pal of Bridget Moynahan's said "If Gisele loved Bridget's child like he was '100 percent her own,' then she would not talk about him in the press."

"Don't you think Jack will grow up and read her comments and find them disrespectful to him and his mother? If Tom Brady is such a great father as everyone likes to say, then you would think that he'd respect the privacy of his young child and would ask his wife not to use his son as a publicity prop and a subject of public discussion?"

"Is she really so desperate for attention that she can't find anything more productive to talk about other than Bridget's child?"

Zinnnng. Your move, Gisele.

Her marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil may be damaged beyond repair, but Amy Winehouse still managed to turn matchmaker last night at the Hard Rock Cafe.

Yes, the singer set up shop at the family restaurant with a mate and two bodyguards and ordered a table full of shots and cocktails before playing Cupid.

Our spy said: "Amy got on really well with the waitress, who kept bringing rounds of Jack Daniel’s cocktails and tequila shots for her and her two pals."

At one point, Amy Winehouse hugged her and playfully slapped her bottom.

The shaky star insisted the waitress take her bodyguard’s number, and tried to force him to plant a kiss on her. She was desperate to get them together."

  • Amy Winehouse Wobbles
  • Helping Hand

Amy Winehouse was determined to set up this fine, upstanding bodyguard with a hot waitress. Unfortunately, he and her other handlers had other ideas.

"As the waitress brought one round of slammers over, Amy rushed to the bar to order more," a spy reportedly told The London Paper. "While her back was turned, another bodyguard removed all the drinks from their table and hid them."

Not to be deterred, the songstress (who says she's turning over a new leaf) declared she was buying all 140 diners at the restaurant a shot of tequila.

"Amy whispered to one of the waitresses and soon the bar was covered in shot glasses. She invited everyone to help themselves," the Sun reports.

Amy Winehouse stayed up late at the bar with pals. Hey, tequila shots and the occasional joints are nothing compared to crack and smack.

David Letterman and Bill O'Reilly have had some memorable exchanges in the past, and last night's visit by O'Reilly to The Late Show certainly followed suit.

In fact, it took two minutes for Letterman to point-blank call him a goon.

Letterman, who warmed our hearts when he got married to his longtime partner Regina Lasko last month, is certainly not losing touch with his cranky side.

Accusing Bill O'Reilly of being "too smart to say the things he says," cutting him off frequently and telling him he's not that entertaining (or a journalist), Dave showed his lack of tolerance for people he deems self-important and unfunny.

For his part, Bill wasn't exactly backing down. The result was a tense interview that ofen turned more bitter than comedic, but was certainly entertaining:

Likely inspired by the Rihanna and Chris Brown debacle, Keira Knightley has filmed a public service video that focuses on domestic violence.

In the two-minute clip, which debuts April 6 in movie theaters, Knightley heads home after a long day of filming.

Once there, she is brutally attacked by her boyfriend.

As the camera pans out, the beating continues, the location is revealed to be an empty film set and the ad reads:

Isn't it time someone called cut?

The actress says she filmed the spot because "while domestic violence exists in every section of society we rarely hear about it.... Domestic violence affects one in four women at some point in their lifetime and kills two women every week."

Are you listening, Rihanna?
