As excited as The Hollywood Gossip staff is for Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry, our glee pales in comparison to those that actually know the new parents.

"I was so happy when I found out," Eugenie Aubry told People Magazine about the new baby girl born on Sunday to Berry and Eugenie's younger brother, Gabriel. She added that "it's been a long time since we've had a new baby in the family."

Gabriel Aubry is a new, really attractive father.

The elder Aubry sibling is yet to meet her new niece, but this Canadian was thrilled to hear that Halle has been practicing her language skills.

"I'm a Quebecer, and it's great that she is learning how to speak French," Eugenie said. "I'm glad that the little one will speak French, too."

The following interview is a few months old, but we just came across it and had to pass it along to all the devoted followers of The Hills out there.

Hey, when the New York Times' style section interviews the lovely Whitney Port, we feel we have little choice but to report it to her fans.

Whitney, who we recently found out is preparing the launch of her clothing line within the company owned by her father, Jeff Port, is a fun interview.

Here's what the wonderful star of The Hills had to say ...

NYTimes: Where do you shop in LA?

Whitney Port: I do a lot of vintage shopping. There's a dress shop called Shareen's Vintage â€" I get a lot of stuff there. And American Rag and a place called Bleu.

NYTimes: Do you buy designer stuff?

Whitney Port: It gets really expensive. I live near places like Vionnet and Curve. I'll get a couple of pieces from there and I'll have them forever.

NYTimes: Rumor has it you're getting phased out of The Hills. Say it's not true!

Whitney Port: That's all just rumor. I'm still going to be continuing filming.

NYTimes: How do you feel about the Heidi-Spencer-Lauren ugliness?

Whitney Port: It's none of my business. I'll be there to lend an ear to Lauren. Other than that, there's no place for me in that situation.

NYTimes: Is any of that feud actually real?

Whitney Port: It's real; it's very sad. Really. Sad. It's sad â€" they were best friends.

[NOTE: Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad have since left Teen Vogue, but this interview took place in late December of last year]

NYTimes: What's your job at Teen Vogue?

Whitney Port: I'm a fashion consultant. It's kind of a freelance thing â€" I'll do anything from styling at photo shoots or working behind the scenes... Being the communicator between the West Coast and the East Coast.

Britney Spears has been ordered to pay $375,000 of Kevin Federline's massive legal bills, according to court documents released Monday.

The scary thing? That's less than his attorney originally sought!

L.A. Court Commissioner Scott Gordon called the billing "reasonable," in part because "the actions of [Britney Spears] caused the majority of litigation."

Last week, the pop star's current lawyer, Stacy Phillips, complained that K-Fed's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, had over-charged Britney Spears, and asked that Federline be ordered to pay his own legal fees - at least in part.

This is a custody battle, by and large, and family courts have the power to order one party to pay for the other's fees, based on income and needs.

Mark Vincent Kaplan had sought half a million for his representation of the FedEx man so far, but Gordon knocked that number down slightly and ordered Britney to pay $375,000. Still not a shabby payday for the attorney.

Sadly for Britney Spears, it doesn't end there
.

Britney's former divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, charged her $164,972 in fees for a span of 10 months as her lawyer. After Wasser quit, Spears hired Trope and Trope to rep her. On their watch, Britney lost custody and visitation of the kids.

Their bill for five months? $685,985.22!

Of course, two mental collapses and consistently bizarre and dangerous antics made it next to impossible for the Commissioner not to strip her of custody.

But come on, that's $685,985.22 better spent on Red Bull, potato chips, booze, blackjack, cars, hookers like Ashley Alexandra Dupre ... just about anything.

They're hot and they're about to be two of the biggest stars on the reality TV scene. DeAnna Pappas, who was rejected by Brad Womack on the stunning finale of The Bachelor last season, returns this summer as The Bachelorette.

Starting this evening at 9:30 EDT on ABC, Matt Grant takes over for Womack as The Bachelor begins its 12th season. Heck, all the handsome Englishman needs to do is pick a damn winner and he'll be an improvement over that stiff Brad.

Who are these hotties? We'll have to get to know them better in the coming weeks and months to really answer that, but for starters, here are a few Matt Grant photos and DeAnna Pappas pictures to get you acclimated ...

It's always great to report about celebrities giving back to the community and few, if any, are a better example of that than Brangelina.

Former President Bill Clinton, too, is no slouch in that department. Bill hosted his Clinton Global Initiative University, while Pitt, the founder of the Make It Right Foundation, posed with supporters and promoted an all-important cause.

The political and Hollywood stars greeted volunteers and broke ground for new homes in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, Louisiana, on Sunday.

Brad Pitt and Bill Clinton walked along the street as hundreds of volunteers on each side, wielding shovels and rakes, prepared the land for homes, clearing overgrown grass and weeds that were covering drains and sidewalks.

The foundation headed by Pitt plans to begin building affordable homes for Hurricane Katrina victims, and the 9th Ward was one of the hardest hit.

"We hope to see a huge change here in the next six months," Pitt told a group of residents as the 42nd President stood by his side.

While Brangelina continued rebuilding New Orleans, Bennifer (Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner) had politics on the mind, hosting a fundraiser for Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama on Sunday in Boston, Mass.

Wearing a gray suit and black Converse All Star sneakers, Ben Affleck said he and his wife were just doing "their part for society."

Calling the Illinois senator a "genuine, real force" he said "there are a lot of things" he loves about Barack Obama, "but I won't bore you with all of them. I'm an actor. I'm not going to create 10-point policy details."

Affleck has been a Barack Obama supporter since he first met him at the 2004 Democratic convention in Boston, according to the Boston Herald.

Their relationship hasn't gotten too close for comfort.

"I'm just grateful he didn't ask me to do a sexy YouTube video with him," Affleck said, referring to his raunchy music video with Jimmy Kimmel.

Well, she didn't actually go to this particular Hollywood hot spot... but she should probably save the effort if she were even thinking about it.

She may be the biggest star in the land, but at one L.A. club, Britney Spears is about as welcome as Heather Mills at Paul McCartney's home.

The pop singer "is not allowed in" to A-list West Hollywood hot spot Villa, co-owner Vincent Laresca told The New York Times Sunday.

"She came twice, but we don't want the media circus that would create," Laresca said of the club, which lists, among other celebrities, Lindsay Lohan, Justin Timberlake, Orlando Bloom and Leonardo DiCaprio as its regulars.

Britney Spears is now more sideshow than show-stopper.

NOTE: Lindsay Lohan is allowed in and Britney Spears is not? Splitting hairs among the Ho Train? What would Paris Hilton's fate be, in that case?

Fortuantely, since her father, Jamie Spears, took over as her co-conservator earlier this year, clubbing in no pants has fallen on Britney's priority list.

Weeding out the bad seeds like Sam Lutfi was probably smart, too. She may not be allowed at Villa, but she stands a better chance of survival.

We know Ashley Tisdale's nose isn't real.

Now, the High School Musical star is admitting that her blonde hair is also as fake as Heather Mills' leg. In a recent interview, Tisdale explained why she lightened her locks:

Back 2 Blonde

"It suits my personality. I guess I was a brunette with a blonde personality. I have been blonde for a while now," Ashley said.

The 22-year-old costar of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens added:

"At first it was really shocking and I didn't know what to think, it felt like another person in the mirror. But now I am comfortable with it. But blondes aren't dumb. I am smart and I don't think all of us are ditzy."

Somewhere, Jessica Simpson grabbed her breasts in agreement.

Heather Mills is standing tall.

Well, as tall as one can stand with a fake leg.

Heather Mills' Bad Hair

The evil ex-wife of Paul McCartney has declared herself "so, so happy" with her nearly $50 million divorce settlement from the singing legend, an amount that was finalized this morning in London.

There was actually a time when Paul McCartney and Heather Mills were happy and... ah, who are we kidding? She was always after his money.

Despite receiving an enormous sum for being nothing but a spoiled ball and chain, Mills stood on the courthouse steps and could not let the issue slide.

"I am standing here because Paul is insistent on the whole judgment being put out. I've said that if the whole judgment goes out then all the transcripts have to go out because it's going to be written in a way that they will try and make it that I wasn't successful," she said.

Let is now be known: Heather Mills is a successful gold digger!

Britney Spears' seedy former confidant, Sam Lutfi, has agreed to stay away from the singer for an additional month, according to court papers.

Sam Lutfi must stay two and a half football fields away from Britney Spears at all times and is not allowed any telephone contact with the star.

The restraining order against him was set to expire today.

While no official reason was given for the agreement, it appears that a deal was struck as a way of warding off a courtroom confrontation with Spears' parents.

The court is expected to approve the extension.

Britney Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, previously accused Lutfi of drugging and verbally abusing her daughter. Los Angeles police are investigating.

Depending on evidence presented regarding Sam Lutfi in court, a restraining order can be extended for up to five years, legal experts have said.

In Osama Lutfi's absence, Britney Spears appears to be getting her life back on track slowly but surely - thanks to dad Jamie Spears' controlling influence.

Brit recently filmed a guest appearance on CBS' How I Met Your Mother and is now allowed multiple monitored visits with her two sons - Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 â€" each week, says a source close to the case.

A source close to the case adds that those visits - agreed to by Spears' ex, Kevin Federline, without the court's involvement - would likely increase over time.

Spears has also been hanging out with Mel Gibson, who along with his kids and wife Robin, has been lending support to the troubled pop singer.

If Brandon Davis were an actual star, rather than a worthless, Paris Hilton-like freeloader, he'd be as big as Britney Spears in the Hollywood gossip world.

Like his brother Jason Davis, some of the news and celebrity gossip that comes out about this oily loser continues to amuse and amaze.

Kim and Brandon

Brandon Davis, a.k.a. "Greasy Bear," and the grandson of late oil tycoon Marvin Davis, has worn out his welcome as a house guest of one of his few remaining friends, music producer Scott Storch, according to the New York Post.

The other night, "[Brandon Davis] and Scott went out and Brandon went back to Scott's place and crashed on the couch," a source said.

Next to Brandon Davis, Scott Storch suddenly appears a lot cooler.

"The next morning, when Scott got up, Brandon Davis was already gone - and so was Scott's $100,000 diamond encrusted watch that had been in the same room the night before. Scott called Brandon and told him the watch was missing but, ‘It's OK - I just got a new security system, so everything's on tape.'"

"After learning he would be caught, Brandon Davis "started crying hysterically and saying, ‘Please don't tell anyone, I'll bring it back.' Scott felt bad for him and got his watch back like an hour later, so he didn't call the police."

When the Post asked Scott Storch about the episode, he would only say, "I heard about this. Give peace a chance." Davis couldn't be reached for comment.
