It's gonna be hard to top Sarah Palin and Tina Fey on the celeb look-alike front, although we think there's at least a slight Ellen Pompeo-Carla Bruni resemblance!

Tall, thin and fair-skinned, the model / singer / wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy could pass for the Grey's Anatomy actress if you ask us. See if you agree:

No Promises

Another similarity: Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, 40, and Ellen Pompeo, 38, both got married within the last year (Ellen to her longtime boyfriend, music producer Chris Ivery)!

Ellen Pompeo is best known the wife of Chris Ivery.

Or as troubled Dr. Meredith Grey on Grey's Anatomy.

Katherine Heigl may dominate celebrity gossip as far as that show's cast is concerned, but Pompeo is proving she's no slouch.

Despite frequent criticism that she's too thin, the actress looks pretty darn attractive in the naked photo after the jump ...

If Grey's Anatomy has any fans left, tonight's two-hour fourth season finale is supposedly the night you've been waiting for!

Just kidding. The show still draws millions of loyal viewers. Yet it's been a long time since something interesting happened on it.

Patrick Dempsey Style

Well, that supposedly changes tonight. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are going to be getting together for good.

We know this because the show's own creator and producer, Shonda Rhimes, has already said so publicly. We don't get it either.

Anyway, here's a photo from tonight's show. Meredith is holding what looks like champagne, ready to celebrate ... something.

More than three years later, will a terrific episode finally bring Meredith and Derek together - or will the hit medical drama jump the shark for good?

Also, Alex and Izzie may or may not get together, and there's another love triangle involving possible girl-on-girl action. Gotta love Grey's Anatomy!

No, he's not angling for Patrick Dempsey's role on Grey's Anatomy. But the husband of Ellen Pompeo can't help but gush about married life.

At Paris Fashion Week Monday, the actress and her longtime partner / spouse of two months were clearly still on cloud nine over their recent nuptials.

"We're blessed," the 38-year-old Grey's Anatomy star said. She and Chris Ivery tied the knot in New York City on her birthday in November.

Chris Ivery is the McDreamy of Ellen Pompeo in real life.

But does Ellen Pompeo think that her TV alter ego, Meredith Grey, will ever find similar happiness with Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd?

"Who can say?" she sighed at Italian designer Giorgio Armani's Monday fashion show. "We're not working because of the writers' strike."

Chris Ivery, a music producer, piped in on cue: "I am the real McDreamy!"

Also on hand for Armani's show in the City of Lights were Hilary Swank, Dita von Teese and the legendary Sophia Loren.

Love and happiness (and cut-off camo shorts) are in the air, folks. A week after quietly getting married in New York City, newlyweds Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery went out for sushi in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 15.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery: Celebrating their one-week anniversary!

The Grey's Anatomy star has been dating Chris Ivery, a music producer, for a long time. Both are Boston-area natives. They got engaged just as quietly on Pompeo's birthday almost exactly one year ago, then tied the knot last Friday on the eve of the actress' 38th birthday. N.Y. City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was their witness.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!

Looks like Ellen Pompeo had a lot more to celebrate last weekend than her 38th birthday. The Grey's Anatomy actress her fiance, music exec Chris Ivery, got married Friday at New York's City Hall, reports the Boston Globe.

None other than New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg - a Boston-area native like both Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery - served as the couple's witness.

Ellen Pompeo repeatedly said that she and Ivery wouldn't opt for usual wedding hoopla, preferring a quiet, low-key affair. She made good on that promise.

A city clerk performed the brief ceremony with only Bloomberg and First Deputy Mayor Patti Harris accompanying Pompeo and Chris Ivery.

"They are over the moon," Pompeo's spokeswoman told the Boston Globe.

She and Chris Ivery were spotted at the New York Knicks game Sunday night at Madison Square Garden, sitting next to John Mayer and Minka Kelly.

Ellen Pompeo was back in Hollywood yesterday filming Grey's Anatomy, which is expected to shut down production soon due to the writers' strike.

We were just starting to wonder about this couple. Singer, songwriter and Grade A tool John Mayer hasn't been spotted in public with his new gal pal Minka Kelly in awhile. But they returned to the spotlight this weekend for some NBA action.

Seated at a New York Knicks game, Mayer was welcomed by the Madison Square Garden scoreboard, which read "Welcome John Mayer, Recording Artist."

We personally would have had it say "Welcome Minka Kelly, star of Friday Night Lights" but we don't make these kinds of decisions. Probably for good reason.

Here's another picture of John and Minka, along with two other celebrities they sat next to - Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and her fiance, Chris Ivery!

In anyone cares, the Miami Heat earned their first win of the season by beating the Isiah Thomas-led Knicks, 75-72, in what was surely a riveting contest. Not.

Ellen Pompeo, the star of Grey's Anatomy, is a big hit everywhere. But she and fiance Chris Ivery love to travel to Italy. Especially for the food.

"I go several times a year. Christopher, my fiancé, has family there and we go spend time with them whenever we get a chance," Pompeo told People.

So what's her favorite thing about Italy? "The food. I love the area of Bologna for food. I think it's really special," she said.

Her top-rated ABC series Grey's Anatomy is also a big hit and Italian fans are taken aback when they see Ellen Pompeo in real life.

"They're quite surprised to see me there," Pompeo, who turns 38 next month, said.

"They just can't believe I'm in Italy. It's out of context for them. They say 'Meredith! It's you, Meredith! Oh my God, could it be Meredith?'"

Pompeo attended National Italian American Foundation's 32nd Annual Gala in Washington, D.C., over the weekend, winning a Special Achievement award.

Less surprising is that she's no slouch when it comes to cooking Italian. Chris Ivery, like Pompeo a Boston-area native, loves her Bolognese sauce, she says of the dish that pays tribute to her favorite region.

Pompeo isn't a rush to get married despite having been engaged for nearly a year. She still hasn't started on the plans, but has thought about the kind of wedding she wants ... "a quiet, simple, private one."

Well, that's nice. Something along the lines of the nuptials between Usher and Tameka Foster, perhaps? Or Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon?

While Isaiah Washington plots his next evil move, his former co-star is speaking out against the coverage celebrity news reports give socialites "who are rich and famous for nothing."

We wonder who Ellen Pompeo could be talking about.

"I just think the media should take this country in a different direction," the Grey's Anatomy star tells the new issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine, on newsstands Aug. 15.

"We're so focused on the wrong things. We're teaching young girls that this is what they should be focusing on: rich and famous girls who are rich and famous for nothing."

Somewhere, Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian are offended. Or busy going to jail and making sex tapes.

Also, Pompeo denied reports that she had an eating disorder. She referred to them as "irresponsible" journalism and said:

"I just worry about the girls who look up to me - I don't want them to think I starve myself or don't eat, and that to be like me that's what they have to do."

That's fair. Maybe someone should tell Keira Knightley the same thing.

Finally, Ellen promised that her and fiance Chris Ivery really will get married. Seriously. They just haven't set a wedding date yet.

"I swear we're going to get married at some time. We're just trying to fit it all in. It won't be a big ceremony - we want one thing to ourselves."

Usher and Tameka Foster - along with Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte - can relate.

Hollywood is chock full of different styles. There's the Pete Doherty, drugged-out-of-your mind look, for example.

Then there's the Keeley Hazell, nude look.

To each, his or her own, of course. But we're here now to focus on contrasting new hairdos. For instance, since she's come back to life, Ellen Pompeo has decided to make her hair straighter than a ruler. Do you guys like it? Do you think Chris Ivery is a fan?

It looks like Penelope Cruz is down with the lack of curls, as this Oscar nominee has also straightened out her locks. She looks very pretty.

In other hair news, a couple of blondes have gone the braided route. While it's weird enough to even see Paris Hilton wearing clothes, it's even stranger to see her trying to look innocent with these pigtails. Especially when we've all seen Paris Hilton's pussy and it lacks any semblance of hair. But anyway.

Hilton's occasional friend, Kimberly Stewart, is also going along with the braids. It's no wonder she wants to emulate Paris and other rich, talentless famous people.

Next, expect Kimberly to follow the Kim Kardashian sex tape lead. How else will these loose women stay in the news?
