Stop the presses, and please, take a break from Lindsay Lohan drama for just one moment to focus on a fresh-faced Hollywood star not gone wild.

Yes, Hilary Duff is our girl - and she's got a new boy, apparently!

Young Celebrity Fashion Icons

Hilary Duff and her hot body, as well as her reported new beau, Mike Comrie, enjoyed a romantic dinner Wednesday at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica.

Mike Comrie is the center for the New York Islanders hockey team, having played with the Ottawa Senators' Eastern Conference-winning squad in 2006-2007.

His "net" worth doesn't stop there, either - the Canadian comes with quite a load of cash - Mike Comrie is heir to the Brick Warehouse fortune. Puck-er up, Hil!

Here's hoping that this heir is slightly less oily than Brandon Davis or brother Jason Davis, a.k.a. Greasy Bear and Gummi Bear.

Don't worry, Mike, they've set the bar low.

Sources say that Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie have been gettin' hot and heavy for at least a couple of weeks, ever since a wet weekend of jet skiing in Idaho.

This is the hottest hockey player-cute young singer couple since Jordin Tootoo and Kellie Pickler. No, really, she's dating someone named Jordin Tootoo and he plays pro hockey.

Hey, Hilary Duff doesn't pay the billz with her mad vocab skillz.

The singer tells Maxim Magazine that she has "OCD" because she likes to clean a lot. That's like saying Lindsay Lohan is a helpless addict instead of a spoiled brat.

Hilary Duff says of her supposed disorder:

"I'm OCD when it comes to cleaning. I can't go to bed with a messy room. That would totally wig me out… It freaks me out to have dishes in the sink."

"I practically clean my hotel room before I check out," the younger sister of Haylie Duff continues. "I wish I weren't psychotic like that, but I am."

Hey, she could be a total train wreck like some people we know.

While she probably just likes the room neat, and doesn't know the meaning of OCD, or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Hilary Duff is all good with us.

It says a lot about a young star when the worst we can say about Duff is that she and Gym Class Heroes handed out X-Rated goodie bags at a show, or that she possibly hooked up with Brody Jenner once. Not exactly a long rap sheet.

The actress steers clear of scandal (for the most part) and appears to have her head on straight. In a world full of Paris Hilton pussy photos, that's a breath of fresh air.

Even if Hilary Duff is sleeping with Brody Jenner, the following story is still inappropriate...

On June 24, at a concert held outside Chicago, X-rated goodie bags were mistakenly handed out. And while these may have been appropriate for fans of that slime ball Akon (who also performed that evening), fans of Duff and fellow performer, Gym Class Heroes, tend to be underage.

Condoms at a Hilary Duff concert? Let's pray those aren't necessary.

The concert promoters must have thought Kim Kardashian was somehow taking the stage - or simply had no idea what was in the bags.

The giveaway, put together by nightclub promotions company Mixmaster Throwdown, included two condoms (Ray J approved, we presume), a catalog for adult store Lovers Lane, an explicit CD, suntan lotion sachets printed with marijuana leaves and a book of gag "sex coupons," redeemable for sexual favors, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

There's no word yet on whether or not Olivia Mojica was actually behind the stunt.

Hilary Duff looks so good in a bikini that she was chosen for the cover of Us Weekly's first annual swimsuit issue.

We agree with the celebrity news publication's call wholeheartedly, as Hilary Duff is a great example of what is actually right with Hollywood.

Duff, Hilary

But success hasn't come easily for Duff. When the singer and actress was 15, Hilary came across a press report criticizing her for her weight.

"It made me obsessed," she admits regarding the story that drove her into a hard-core diet and exercise binge.

"I would beat myself up if I had some fat."

Heck, Duff already has crazy people threatening to kill her. Now she's going to beat herself up? Not cool at all. But fortunately, she had help realizing this.

When the 5-foot-2 star's weight plummeted to around 100 pounds back in 2005 (down from 130 in 2003), her older sister Haylie Duff, 22, intervened.

"She said, ‘Why are you being so strict with yourself?'It was like an awakening," says Hilary Duff, who eased up on her rigorous program.

"I don't want to be so skinny that people are like, Oh my god, she's lost too much weight."

Amen. But if you lose Brody Jenner, that's totally okay with us.

In any case, Hilary Duff, 19, says that she's content at 109 pounds
.

"As you get older, you just get more comfortable in your own skin," she said. "You just need to find balance."

Or in Nicole Richie's case, what little skin you've got left.

Instead of counting fat grams or calories, Duff relies on a hearty helping of common sense: lots of greens, lean protein and fresh fruit.

We love Hilary Duff. We made that clear in a post yesterday.

So you can understand our surprise at the sight of the starlet leading the way at the hot Hollywood club Joseph's ... for playboy Brody Jenner!

Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne Picture

Brody Jenner, of course, has been romantically linked to Kristin Cavallari, Lauren Conrad, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and God only knows who else.

He's a himbo in every sense of the made-up word. We just hope - maybe pray, even - that Jenner and Duff are just friends! And that his pal Spencer Pratt is AWOL.

Nice plaid shirt with cutoff sleeves, Brody, you loser. Not even a player as big as him can pull off this look, straight out of the Britney Spears school of fashion.

Earlier in the day, Hilary Duff and her BFF and big sister, Haylie Duff, spent the day eating and shopping in Beverly Hills â€" they picked up some lingerie at Faire Frou Frou (ooooh), dropped some coin at Barney's New York and lunched at the trendy Newsroom cafe.

Sigh. It's tough being a Duff! Hilary or Haylie! But boy, how we love 'em.

We now pause for a break in the (girl-on-girl) action and offer you a brief reprieve from endless news about Paris Hilton in jail or out of jail, or new pictures of that tramp Lindsay Lohan passing out, or of the latest Britney Spears nipple slip.

In a world where celebrity gossip increasingly dominates headlines (not that our staff writers are complaining), you don't hear a lot about Hilary Duff. And that's why we love her. The girl is so genuine, so true to herself. Not to mention pretty damn cute.

The cover of Britain's Stella magazine, which features Duff, even goes so far as to make the claim that the pretty singer is the "acceptable" face of young Hollywood. We couldn't agree more. And we really wish crazy fools would quit stalking her.

Thank you, Stella, for reaffirming our love for Hilary Duff.

Ah. Wasn't that a refreshing change from the latest celebrity news? It sure was. Now, back to figuring out what's going on with that supposed Vanessa Minnillo sex tape ...

He's already on a cool show.

But Kevin Connolly boosted his image as a player Tuesday night when he became the meat in a Duff sandwich, so to speak.

The adorable Entourage star arrived with the singing sisters at 11 p.m. for friend and promoter Frankie Delgado's birthday party, but his attention was soon all on Haylie Duff.

She's the older, less famous sister of Hilary Duff.

While the official word from their camps is that KevCon and Haylie aren't dating, they sure were canoodling and whispering in each others' ears - hard.

Don't worry, though - for those of you concerned that Hilary Duff is too young to be in the club, she was drinking only water. There would be no Lindsay Lohan binges for this starlet.

Tanned, blonde and in a strapless dress, Haylie looked like she just came from the beach Kevin was all over that piece like Britney Spears on an In-n-Out burger.

Also getting cuddly last night: Brody Jenner and just about every girl in the building. Except, of course, for his ex, Lauren Conrad - who was also there.

Yes, while The Hills stars were both at Hyde, Brody was giving Lauren Conrad the cold shoulder. Even after pulling the "unintentional" pass-by move, LC did not succeed in diverting Brody's attention from the bevy of babes circling him.

SIDE NOTE: It's interesting that the last time we heard from Brody, it was also in our Club Watch. This is because Brody Jenner does nothing but go to clubs and pick up girls. More power to him for it - we're just making a point here.

In any case, Lauren Conrad left at 12:30, thus missing a brief club cameo by Kanye West, who swaggered in at 1:15 a.m., but was out no more than 10 minutes later.

Probably had to get home to Alexis Phifer.

Police officers moved quickly to take down a man who allegedly threatened to kill pop star Hilary Duff during her appearance on a Canadian TV show.

Hilary Duff was being interviewed Tuesday by MuchMusic host Leah Miller on Live @ Much when a man in the crowd outside started shouting at the 19-year-old singer and actress.

Hilary Duff's Cat Cleans Up

The unidentified man vowed to kill Duff, prompting several police officers to tackle him. "The cops slammed his face into the pavement," said a witness. "He was bleeding."

The commotion happened just feet away from an outdoor platform where Duff later stood to greet fans who surged forward for autographs and pictures.

It's not the first time the lovely young gal has been involved in a scary indicent. Last November, police in Manhattan Beach, Calif., arrested an 18-year-old, Maksim Miakovsky, for stalking and threatening to kill Duff.

A month earlier, Duff and her then-boyfriend Joel Madden of rock band Good Charlotte filed for restraining orders against Miakovsky and his 50-year-old roommate, David Joseph Klein.

Miakovsky pleaded no contest to the charges in January and was sentenced to 117 days in jail and five years probation.

Duff was in Toronto promoting her third studio CD, Dignity. It's too bad her fans don't have any of it! Seriously. Why the hell are there so many people stalking or wishing harm on Hilary Duff? Hopefully older sister Haylie Duff was there to comfort her.

At the very least, she has a legion of fans who wish her the best every single day. And she's got Lindsay Lohan (and possibly Stavros Niarchos) in her camp.

Just weeks after Joel Madden and Hilary Duff broke up last November, the Good Charlotte frontman began dating skinny socialite (and part time druggie) Nicole Richie.

Still reeling from the difficult breakup, the Material Girls actress, 19, had to watch as the romance blossomed on the celebrity gossip magazines (and websites).

And there's also the fact that Hilary Duff had a stalker.

In the May issue of Cosmo Girl, Hilary Duff opens up about her struggles with her weight, her newfound self-confidence, and what it was like creating her new album, Dignity, while working through the heartbreak. 

She does not, however, address rumors that she's with Stavros Niarchos. Oh well. We'll figure that out in time. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On her breakup with Joel Madden
:
"(Joel Madden) was my boyfriend for two years and I loved him - he was a very important part of my life. All that stuff about the age difference between us being the reason we broke up is just not true; I never felt the age difference. Breaking up was just something that I felt needed to happen between us. People thought we were an unlikely couple, but we really weren't that different. After two months, I didn't even see his tattoos anymore, because that's not who he is. He used to say, 'I don't think there are too many people out there who really get you, but I do.' And he did. I could be stupid, silly, funny, or crazy, and he got it. He gave me a sense of confidence and independence I didn't have before. For a time it was awkward, but we e-mail all the time now and are at a really good place."

THG NOTE: Not quite the same place that Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler are all of a sudden back at. But friendship is a good thing too.

On getting slim:
"I have the same insecurities about my body that every girl has and I made a conscious choice to get in shape. I've always been a junk food eater, but I started paying more attention to what I put in my body and cut out foods like pizza, chicken fingers, and French fries. If I knew I'd want dessert one night, I wouldn't have bread that day. If I wanted to eat bread, I wouldn't have dessert. Seeing how well it worked motivated me to keep going, but I hit a period when I got too skinny. I wasn't too obsessed with it, but I did learn that there have to be days when you just don't think about it."

THG NOTE: For Britney Spears, that's every day. But who's counting.

On her new album, Dignity:

"It's interesting - half the record was written when I was with Joel, and the other half was written after we'd broken up. So together, the album is just really personal. So many of the songs are about things my family has gone through. I was scared to write about that stuff at first, but then I thought, Why try to make it seem like I have a perfect life when I don't?"
