Was Sylvester Stallone the source of that bizarre urban myth involving Richard Gere and a gerbil placed strategically up his...

Anyway. According to Sly, Gere thinks he did start the hilarious, yet also disturbing "felching" tale that dogs Richard to this day.

Sly Stallone

As Stallone tells it, the bad blood between the two all started when he and Gere had a falling-out on the set of the 1974 flick The Lords of Flatbush.

Stallone said that Gere was supposed to have the role played by Perry King, but he and Gere "never hit it off" and the man known best as Rocky Balboa got so mad at Gere that he once elbowed him in the head... over some chicken.

"[Gere] would strut around in his oversized motorcycle jacket like he was the baddest knight at the round table," Stallone said.

He also says that one time during a fight scene, things got a little too real. At another point, things got physical during a lunch when Stallone went into a Toyota to eat lunch.

"I was eating a hot dog and he climbs in with a half a chicken covered in mustard with grease nearly dripping out of the aluminum wrapper," Stallone recounted.

"I said, ‘That thing is going to drip all over the place.' He said, ‘Don't worry about it.' I said, ‘If it gets on my pants you're gonna know about it.' He proceeds to bite into the chicken and a small, greasy river of mustard lands on my thigh. I elbowed him in the side of the head and basically pushed him out of the car. The director had to make a choice: one of us had to go, one of us had to stay."

THG NOTE: Whatever started the feud between Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton is unknown, but we guarantee it wasn't as funny as this - and did not involve food (obviously).

Richard Gere's spokesman wasn't available for comment, possibly due to being preoccupied with small rodents (zing!) but according to Stallone:

"Richard was given his walking papers, and to this day, seriously dislikes me. He even thinks I'm the individual responsible for the gerbil rumor. Not true, but that's the rumor."

If nothing else, we'd like to thank Sly for putting the Gere story back in the news. We haven't heard that rumor in about 10 years... and it's certainly just as funny (if not even more disturbing) as the Dustin Diamond sex tape.

Gwen Stefani performed her best version of "Wind It Up" on The Late Show With David Letterman, and like the incredible mom she is, she even brought along a special guest.

Awww. Little Kingston James McGregor Rossdale even got a cute Letterman t-shirt. It's nice to see that this pop star also seems like a great mom with her head in the right place. Yes. If you're reading this, Britney Spears, we are calling you out.

All we know for sure is that it's not David Spade she's k-i-s-s-i-n-g anymore.

Fresh off one of the oddest celebrity pairings we've seen, Heather Locklear was recently spotted sharing an intimate dinner with Christina Applegate's ex-husband. The man is also known as Johnathan Schaech, an actor probably best known for his role in That Thing You Do!

"She really likes him," says a Locklear pal of the actor. "It's still in that fun, getting-to-know-each-other stage."

Of course, Locklear was married to Richie Sambora.

Who is now dating Denise Richards.

Who was once wed to Charlie Sheen.

Who has a soft spot for drag queens.

There may be a quiz on this later.

At The Hollywood Gossip, we absolutely love Celebrity Look-Alikes. Possibly even more than reporting on the absurd stories of the day, such as Britney Spears dating Jonathan Rotem. There's just nothing like finding a good pair of famous folks that resemble one another and getting a good laugh at the end of the day.

Especially when said look-alikes involve both a fictional character and some Paris Hilton pussy. Yes, this one sure does. Check out the scary, undeniable likeness of Hollywood's most hated hotel heiress and a creppy, pussy-loving dude who is pretty universally despised in his own right: Dr. Evil of Austin Powers fame...

Criss Angel and Paris Hilton

 

These two have more in common than just their looks. The evil galactic ruler has to endure nemesis Austin exclaiming "Yeah, Baby!" every time they're together, and Paris Hilton has to listen the same when guys are tapping that fine ass. And it happens a great deal. Trust us.

Someone's gotta get these two together. Let's just hope Mini-Me doesn't try to cut the line at Hyde. No way Paris (or Dina Lohan) would stand for that $h!t.

Don't worry, Eddie Murphy, your sly way with the ladies is safe with us.

But you may wish to avoid every camera with a bulb if you actually want to keep your latest relationship on any sort of down low.

Eddie Murphy at Tower Heist Premiere

Seen here with his new squeeze, Tracey Edmonds, Murphy is attending the London premiere of Dreamgirls. He doesn't look like the sort of slime ball that would abandon a pregnant girlfriend and then publicly question the validity of his fatherhood. Does he?

Fortunately for the actor, a semi-tiff between Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson is dominating headlines around the movie.

Not that Eddie looks worried about that. Or anything. He's too busy being one cool dude.

The staff at The Hollywood Gossip is fairly intelligent, but we're having difficulty following the recent logic of Rosie O'Donnell.

The co-host on The View made an innocent gesture by Kelly Ripa into an alleged incident of homophobia because those going out of their way to construe it that way could possibly find a way to do so.

Rosie

But now that members of the Asian-American community are expressing offense over recent Rosie remarks, the occasional actress has little remorse concerning the feelings of this minority group.

The situation makes O'Donnell more of a hypocrite than Rachel Bilson is an odd dresser. Here's what transpired:

Commenting on December 5 about a visit to the ABC show by an inebriated Danny DeVito, O'Donnell said:

"The fact is that it's news all over the world. That you know, you can imagine in China it's like: 'Ching chong. Danny DeVito, ching chong, chong, chong, chong. Drunk. The View. Ching chong.' "

While cute little Asian, Suri Cruise, didn't have a comment, O'Donnell responded coldly to others on her website with:

"It was not my intent to mock ... I do many accents and probably will continue to. My mom in law impression offends some southerners. What can you do? I come in peace."

However, the explanation did not satisfy many, including New York City councilman John C. Liu, who sent a letter to View executive producer Barbara Walters.

Liu told FOXNews.com on Monday: "The 'ching-chong' bit is not a trivial matter. It really hits a raw nerve for many people in the community â€" many like myself, who grew up with these kinds of taunts. We all know that it never ends at the taunts."

We agree. For someone who defends the honor of Clay Aiken, even when it doesn't need defending, Rosie should know better.

It turns out a security camera pointed at the California 134 Freeway in Burbank recorded the Nicole Richie arrest on DUI charges early Monday morning.

ABC Television has offices near the exit ramp which Richie used to enter the freeway... going the wrong way. Security guards noticed the commotion on their monitors and trained their security camera in that direction.

Cute Celebrity Baby-Mom Duo

The pictures below show Nicole Richie talking to members of the California Highway Patrol. She admitted that she had popped Vicodin and smoked pot before being hauled off to jail, where she was booked and this mug shot was produced.

"This marks a difficult time for Nicole but she is prepared to accept whatever responsibility is appropriate," says Richie's attorney, Howard Weitzman, in a statement to TMZ. "She intends to continue with her career and will deal with any other issues that need to be addressed."

THG NOTE: Other issues = not eating since 2003? We can only wait and see. Stay tuned to T.H. Gossip for the latest in the Nicole Richie DUI drama.

And she's talking about her family in next month's issue.

Below are excerpts from the cover story Angelina Jolie gave to Vogue, in which The Good Sheperd star opens up about everything from marriage to a certain gal named Jen.

On Brad Pitt:
"Brad was a huge surprise to me. I, like most people, had a very distant impression of him from ... the media. I am just as guilty! We push each other to be better. Even if it's just a better bike rider or a better pilot. We're constantly in competition with each other. He's somebody I admire based on the way he lives his life. And that's why I'm with him. [He is] the person closest to me."

On their relationship:
"[We] found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened [on the set of their Mr. & Mrs. Smith]. I think a few months in I realized, God, I can't wait to get to work. Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts - anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. Life developed in a way where we could be together, and where it felt like something we would do, we should do.

On marriage:
"We are legally bound to our children, not to each other, and I think that's the most important thing."

On Jennifer Aniston:
"We've, like, passed each other and said 'hi' briefly, shook hands. But not a real sit-down-and-talk kind of meeting."

On Shiloh:
"The day Shiloh came home...we looked around at three sleeping children and each other and thought, My God! Here we are! This is amazing! Couldn't be happier! But ...wow. We can't even figure out how to get them all in the car."

We're not sure, Ang. But here's one piece of advice: don't let Nicole Richie drive it.

This week's awesome Nicole Richie arrest for driving under the influence got us thinking. What are the odds she'll get busted for DUI again?

Well, would you believe that WagerWeb.com takes bets on the subject, and took the time to e-mail The Hollywood Gossip with the official odds?

Britney Spears, Gun

That's right, you can place bets on what celebrities will be the next to be locked up and have their mug shots taken for DUI. It may not surprise you to know that Britney Spears, Tara Reid and Lindsay Lohan are the odds-on favorites as of right now. But don't you dare count out a couple of dark horse candidates, either.

"Bettors are fascinated with wagering on everyday news, especially stories surrounding celebrities," says Dave Johnson, CEO of WagerWeb.com. "The Mel Gibson and Paris Hilton DUI arrests, among other celebrities, sparked huge interest in DUI odds."

Our only complaint is that Jonathan "J.R." Rotem didn't make the company's list. But I guess it's only a matter of time if he keeps bagging Brit. Good to see our boy Andy Dick is high up there, in any case!

THE OFFICIAL ODDS on which celebrity will be the first to be arrested and charged with a DUI (regardless of trial outcome) are as follows:

  • Britney Spears: 1 to 2
  • Paris Hilton: 2 to 1
  • Tara Reid: 3 to 1
  • Lindsay Lohan: 4 to 1
  • Danny DeVito: 5 to 1
  • Andy Dick: 6 to 1
  • Mel Gibson: 8 to 1
  • Keith Urban: 10 to 1
  • Ashlee Simpson: 11 to 1
  • George Clooney: 12 to 1
  • Mary-Kate Olsen: 13 to 1
  • Christian Slater: 14 to 1
  • Lauren Conrad: 15 to 1
  • Haley Joel Osment: 16 to 1
  • Michelle Rodriguez: 17 to 1
  • Jackie Chan: 18 to 1
  • Wilmer Valderrama: 19 to 1
  • Frankie Muniz: 20 to 1
  • Colin Farrell: 20 to 1
  • Tracy Morgan: 20 to 1
  • Keanu Reeves: 22 to 1
  • Nicole Richie: 24 to 1
  • Pamela Anderson: 25 to 1
  • Whitney Houston: 25 to 1

You know what they say. When the going gets tough, the 85-pound weaklings go hiking!

The sickly Nicole Richie, who was arrested on charges of driving under the influence early Monday morning, is determined to stay the course as she takes in some fresh air with an unknown male companion in the Hollywood Hills on Sunday. No word on whether she's taken in any food yet this month.

A Harlow Smile

While this fabulous Nicole Richie mug shot is pretty damning proof of the downward spiral that has become her life, she can at least take solace in one thing: She's not constantly photographed wearing no pants, slinging illegally-obtained prescription drugs out of the Hyde bathroom and dating some loser like J.R. Rotem.

Come on, Britney!
