Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford kept his arm around his rumored new girlfriend - Casey Laine - in New York City this past weekend.
Rumored? Hardly. Give us a break. Just look at the searing passion on his face in the picture below and tell us these two aren't dating ...
Casey Laine sure looks GR8 with Chace Crawford! We hope it's 4 real.
Prior to Casey Laine, Chace Crawford had been romantically linked to American Idol-winning country sensation Carrie Underwood, his co-star Leighton Meester, 30 Rock hottie Katrina Bowden, and former *NSync singer JC Chasez.
Is Laine, who is from Chace's hometown of Dallas, Tx., speaking out about her new relationship with the Gossip Girl star on her MySpace page?
It reads, "Kiss me slow and softly. Make me dream of you."
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG !!!
As Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush continue to make entertainment news followers nauseous with their public displays of affection, the couple will be glad to know it has at least one fan:
Kim's stupidly-named sister, Khloe Kardashian, says the pair should get married. Maybe. But not too soon. It's serious stuff, after all.
"I hope [they get married], I love Reggie. I think they complement each other," Khloe kommented. "But I still think it's early, I don't know. People want to rush everything. She's amazing. She's so mature, she's so the girl that's like a one-guy person. That takes a teamwork thing. They have to grow together. It's like a serious step."
Thanks for klearing all that up, Khloe.
While millions of girls scream in delight over David Archuleta every week on American Idol, his father has come under fire for screaming of a different kind.
Celebrity gossip site TMZ.com, for example, has reported that Jeff Archuleta - a 47-year-old small business owner in Salt Lake City - has "screamed at his son and has even withheld water during rehearsals, even bringing his son to tears."
Is Jeff truly this hard on his talented offspring? Us Weekly recently spoke with him to find out...
How would you characterize your involvement with David's career?
Because I'm also a musician, I'm probably a little bit more involved. I kind of look at it like, 'I'm David's music consultant,' someone he can bounce ideas off, who can help him because I do have a lot of experience.
How do you collaborate with David?
When we have a chance to sit down and talk - which is usually at night or in the morning - we'll discuss the songs and the choices he has. He'll ask me what I think, and I'll ask him what he feels good about, and we'll arrive at a consensus. Sometimes he'll call his mom up and get her in-put. We have a family team that tries to help David feel good about his song choices.
When did you realize he had this talent and how did you encourage him?
I first realized he had talent when he was 4 or 5, and his mom taught him to play "Little Drummer Boy" and a church song on the piano. He played very well, but he was very shy and didn't really sing much. When we moved from Florida to Utah when he was 6, we didn't have a piano. I gave him a video to listen to one day just to keep him and his little brother busy while my wife and I were unpacking.
The second season of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila will have "a lot more drama" than the original. So says the bisexual at the center of this reality show.
What else did Tila Tequila have to say about her taste in men and/or women?
"Well, I'm really not into bimbos," she said in a recent interview. "Male or female. People don't believe me when I say that, but it's true. I like smart people I can relate to on an emotional and mature level."
We've heard that's also the reason why Reggie Bush is dating Kim Kardashian.
As for which gender she prefers, Tequila makes Bill Maher look like a conservative with her open-mindedness:
"I'm more into the person than the gender. Girls are soft, and we get each other and can have deep conversations. Men are nice, too, because they feel strong and secure."
More than anything, the person who will get to see Tila Tequila nude on a regular basis must be grounded.Â This MySpace celebrity isn't looking for the biggest party animal:
"People have this perception that I'm a wild party girl, out every night. But the truth is I'm at home, watching the History Channel."
Right. The History of Sex Channel, we bet!
Fourth season American Idol champ Carrie Underwood is the May 2008 cover girl for InStyle Magazine, and needless to say, she looks great!
That goes for any sort of wardrobe choice she might make - and the star takes no issue with the fact that she prefers casual to glamorous.
"My personal style changes day to day," Carrie Underwood says. "But at the end of the day, I love sweatpants. I do enough glamming up for awards show and whatnot. So I can wear sweats whenever I want and it kind of evens itself out."
Carrie Underwood is a stylish (read: beautiful) young woman.
"I don't think about awards shows until the day they're there. I try not to stress about them too far in advance. That day, it's just all about looking pretty. So I can just sit back and let everyone do all the work."
Whatever you're doing, Carrie, keep doing it!
The country singer lists Charlize Theron, Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl and Reese Witherspoon as some of her celebrity fashion icons.
Looks like Billy Zane is no longer seeing Kelly Brook nude.
Well, at least in person. He can always try the Internets like everyone else!
Anyway. There will be no wedding bells for the Titanic star and his fiancÃ©e, according to her manager, who confirmed the split.
"We can confirm that Kelly Brook and Billy Zane have split up," Brook's manager, John Fowler, told Us Weekly earlier today.
Brook wasn't wearing her engagement ring at a TV awards show on Sunday.
Zane, 42, and Brook, 28, met while filming the thriller Three in 2004. A handful of people probably saw that and noticed their chemistry.
Hopefully a grieving Billy can replace Kelly with another British model... wonder if Lucy Pinder and/or Keeley Hazell are single?
Look away, Carey Hart.
It appears as though your ex has moved on, as Pink has been spotted out and about these days with random musician Todd Morse.
The punk singer and the guitar player for Juliette and the Licks are seen walking around Malibu in the photo below; last month, witnesses saw them cuddling at West Hollywood's Key Club.
Celebrity news and gossip tend to be cyclical.
The good periods involve massive amounts of celebrity fashion train wrecks, DUI arrests, babies, pregnancies, engagements and general news of note.
It's a happy time for all. But the slow news days, weeks or months? Well, they cause people in the celeb gossip industry to get desperate.
Some cope with the void by digging deep for stories about Peter Sarsgaard and the like. Others simply make news up, no matter how absurd.
Take the Britney Spears story below. In the past, Star Magazine has run very similar articles, even going so far as to run old Britney Spears photos with new headlines, misleading the public into thinking there is actually something worth reading.
We can't help but notice how much Britney Spears' "new bikini body" looks like her old bikini body ... and losing 20 pounds in 30 days? Come on, Star.
Since cleaning up her act a bit, Britney Spears has become less of a train wreck. Which is good, as we really didn't wish to see her die. Yet she makes far less interesting copy nowadays. You may want to just give it up at some point, Star.
You have to hand it to this celebrity gossip magazine on the Suri Cruise birthday / Katie Holmes crying photo and headline, though. Quality pic!
A disappointing mambo sent Marlee Matlin and partner Fabian Sanchez packing this week on Dancing with the Stars. But the results couldn't shake the enthusiasm from the Oscar-winning actress!
"I'll keep dancing forever. Wherever the music is, I'm dancing!" she said through a sign language interpreter.
Sanchez, meanwhile, was just sad that he had to bid farewell to a new friend. But he assured fans he and Matlin would remain BFF along the lines of Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux (minus the homemade videos, we presume).
"We would go to get lunch together, goof around and play jokes on each other," Fabian said. "I'll always remember every single day. And I just hope that were going to continue to be friends forever."
