Nick Zano knew better.

He knew everyone would be trying to hit that piece.

Beach Hottie

Not that we blame everyone trying to hit that piece.

In any case, before sending his smoking hot girlfriend, Kristin Cavallari, off to Miami for a wild spring break celebration, Nick knew he had to mark his territory.

That's why Zano, who had to stay behind in New Orleans, where he's filming "College," decided to brand his girl prior to her trip to Miami.

We're talking about the always-advisable, never regrettable decision to convince your girlfriend to get your initials tattooed on her wrist.

"He wants all the other guys who flirt with Kristin to know she's all his," said an insider, who got a peek at the Laguna Beach girl's new wrist tattoo during a Victoria's Secret Pink event on the beach.

Our spy said the body art displays his initials, "NZ," in black ink.

When asked about it, Cavallari "got really giggly and started blushing."

Well, it could be worse. Lauren Conrad could have gotten "JW" inked on her wrist while she and Jason Wahler were together. Now that would have sucked.

And besides, it's just two letters. Kristin can always claim that "NZ" stands for New Zealand in two months when they break up.

Or go the Johnny Depp route and altered it a bit - the star had his "Winona Forever" tat changed to "Wino Forever" when his engagement to Winona Ryder ended.

The bombshell dropped earlier this week, setting off a serious of raucous celebrations in the streets from Laguna Beach to Miami and everywhere in between.

The reason? Jason Wahler is going to the slammer.

Cavallari in Action

The former star of Laguna Beach and The Hills was released on bail following his latest arrest, but a day later, was convicted of battery stemming from an October 2006 altercation. As a result, he'll be spending two months in jail.

Given what a waste of space Wahler is, the meathead's peers can't help but sing the praises of this well-deserved sentencing. Below, his high school classmate, Kristin Cavallari, is seen whooping it up along with hordes of other revelers.

It truly is an event that everyone can celebrate. To illustrate this, take a look behind Kristin and you will see singer JoJo. Everybody's coming out to wish Wahler a happy time behind bars!

This month's issue of GQ has a brief interview with a Hollywood Gossip favorite, the lovely and spunky Kristin Cavallari. Here's what the former Laguna Beach star, ex-girlfriend of Brody Jenner and aspiring actress has to say about her hit series, the L.A. dating scene, and her new movie, Spring Breakdown ...

Kristin Cavallari, Mark Ballas

GQ: What's Spring Breakdown about?
Kristin Cavallari: It's a comedy. Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, and Parker Posey were dorks in college and never had a spring break. I'm in a group of girls called "the Sevens" â€" there are seven of us, and we wear Seven jeans â€" and we're the hot girls. Amy Poehler wants to hang out with us, so we make her over.

GQ: Didn't Amy Poehler make fun of you on Saturday Night Live?
Kristin Cavallari: It was Weekend Update. She said something like, "Kristin Cavallari was seen canoodling with the Taliban." It was funny.

GQ: You dated Nick Lachey. How bad did the paparazzi get?
Kristin Cavallari: I'd have twelve cars waiting outside my house. I was 19. The paparazzi got out of hand. My makeup artist always told me that if you're nice to them, they'll be nice to you.

GQ: Laguna Beach is scripted, right? You can tell us.
Kristin Cavallari: I don't see Laguna Beach as a reality show. The producers would say, "Kristin, come here at this time to have lunch with this person to talk about this. Ask him this specific question." In one scene my hair is short, and in the next scene it's down to here. How does anyone not notice that?

GQ: Is it true that people in Laguna want to kick MTV out?
Kristin Cavallari: Laguna Beach is so small and artsy and old. All of a sudden, MTV comes in and corrupts it. Now there are Laguna Beach tours of the restaurants and clothing store we would go to.

GQ: Do people in Los Angeles ever stay in on a Friday night?
Kristin Cavallari: Very few. It's the same people, the same thing, every single night. This L.A. lifestyle isn't really for me. Everyone's naked. The plastic surgery thing. It gets old. It's hard to meet a guy here.

GQ: Are you one of those pretty girls who's convinced she's a nerd at heart?
Kristin Cavallari: No, I never say I'm a nerd.

The Gossip gives props to Kristin for essentially outing MTV. Its "reality" shows are so scripted it's not even funny. Come on now, there's no way Jason Wahler magically appears and gets a second chance to date Lauren Conrad (Kristin's high school rival) on The Hills. Which isn't to say we don't love watching it. But seriously.

Anyway, enjoy these Kristin Cavallari photos ...

He's rich, dates hot chicks and spends most of his time on the L.A. club scene. And for no known reason other than his name and good looks.

It's the American Dream personified. Ladies, you could date this man next. But for now, here's Details Magazine's inside look at some notable female companions of the great Brody Jenner.

Rock Bottom?

Slideshow and text credits: Details (follow link to the magazine's original story).

KRISTIN CAVALLARI

Her Claim to Fame: Best known as "the bitchy one" on MTV's Laguna Beach, Cavallari, 20, was also linked to then-USC star Matt Leinart in 2004 and Nick Lachey in 2006.
How They Hooked Up: Jenner and Cavallari coupled up after crossing paths at a party for Stuff magazine.
Staying Power: Kristin and Brody were together from September 2005 until August 2006 - an eternity for the Prince of Malibu. Presumably, in their time together, Jenner saw a lot of this.
The Drama: Post-breakup, Kristin Cavallari stepped out in a T-shirt reading YOU CAN HAVE HIM, presumably aimed at Nicole Richie (see below). Jenner, in his typical laid-back style, responded in People: "I'm guessing she's talking about her dog, which she left at my house months ago."

LINDSAY LOHAN

Her Claim to Fame: Hard partying and a list of trysts nearly as long as her filmography. Past boy toys include Wilmer Valderrama, Colin Farrell, Joaquin Phoenix, Jude Law, Jared Leto, and Brett Ratner.
How They Hooked Up: The two were introduced by Lohan's hairstylist (whom Jenner knew from L.A.) while out at New York's Bungalow 8.
Staying Power: One magical night. Recently, Brody and Lohan left a New York club together. He was spotted exiting Lohan's hotel the next morning.
The Drama: Jenner and Lindsay Lohan both denied sleeping together, but that doesn't mean Jenner didn't relish the speculation, telling People, "I had a great time in New York. Lindsay's a sweet girl."

NICOLE RICHIE

Her Claim to Fame: Nicole, who is Lionel Richie's adopted daughter, is also Paris Hilton's on-again-off-again BFF.
How They Hooked Up
: Jenner and Nicole Richie met as kids â€" Lionel Richie and Brody's mom, actress-songwriter Linda Thompson, go way back. They only started "dating" after Richie called off her engagement to DJ AM, and depending on what you read, Brody and his friend hatched a plan where he would increase his own celebrity by making her eat.
Staying Power: Bichie lasted three months, starting in August 2006.
The Drama: Their relationship ended amid questions. Richie wrote on her MySpace page: "I know there are rumors regarding my ‘breakup' with Brody Jenner. The truth is, we were never really together. We hung out, and he's a nice guy, but my heart was never in it. Anything further is just a cry for publicity."

LAUREN CONRAD

Her Claim to Fame: Conrad (known to many as LC) was, like, Cavallari's nemesis on Laguna Beach and currently stars on its hit spin-off, The Hills, in which she interns at Teen Vogue.
How They Hooked Up: Check out season 2 of The Hills and watch the drama unfold... live! Well, sort of. Jenner and Conrad were set up by their respective best friends â€" Jenner's quote-unquote publicist, Spencer Pratt, and Conrad's bubbly Hills co-star, Heidi Montag â€" who are now dating (and making everyone around them sick, but that's a subject for another time.
Staying Power: Three weeks, maybe four. Possibly back on.
The Drama: Talk about killing them with kindness. According to Life & Style, during her liaison with Jenner, Lauren Conrad provoked Richie at another L.A. hot spot by being overly friendly. Richie reportedly cried, "LC just keeps saying hi to me over and over again. I can't stand it!"

Yeah. Anytime this pair of blonde cuties gets together, you know there's going to be some serious drinking and making out going on.

Oh wait, we must have confused them with Tara Conner and Katie Blair. Sorry. That's our bad. Or was it some kind of subconscious, wishful thinking?

Doyoyoyoyoy

No comment. Anyway, two Gossip favorites - Kristin Cavallari and Hayden Panettiere - were recently spotted doing some power shopping in Beverly Hills...

One thing made this happenstance meeting just a tad awkward - Hayden is reportedly dating Kristin's high school friend and ex-beau, Stephen Colletti. Drama!

Fortunately, these kittens kept their claws in check, which is more than can be said of Kristin and Lauren Conrad, whose rift all dates back to Mr. Colletti.

Here's hoping the Laguna Beach alum and the Heroes heroine run into each other more frequently. Not just for us, but because it looks like they could be pals!

Wherever Kristin Cavallari goes, The Hollywood Gossip does its best to follow. And if it weren't for the damn restraining order, we could do a much better job.

Just kidding. Or are we!??! Anyway, here are some pictures of our favorite socialite, actress and Laguna Beach alumna at the opening of the Mondrian Scottsdale. With Kristin in the middle pic is pal Jenn Hoffman. Click to enlarge!

Cavallari Attire

Somewhere, Lauren Conrad is jealous. Okay, probably not.

The Hollywood Gossip is renowned for breaking new ground, for defining its own boundaries. If we want to expand our Celebrity Look-Alikes to include three people at once, we're not afraid to pull the trigger!

Here are three blonde cuties you have probably heard of, and who are a combined 62 years old. In other words, old enough to make you feel dirty looking at this... though Hayden Panettiere (who does not appear here) is only 17. Think about that.

Looking Lost

Anyway, from left to right, here are aspiring actress and Laguna Beach alumna Kristin Cavallari, former American Idol finalist Kellie Pickler, and High School star Ashley Tisdale. That's the reality show, not your actual high school. Sorry, guys.

Chances are, you'll be hearing more from these three in coming years.

God. That fat f**k is everywhere these days. As much a celebrity as some of the people he covers on his blog, Perez Hilton is seen here with aspiring actress and Laguna Beach alumna Kristin Cavallari. Nauseous at the sight of our girl KC in the presence of this no talent hack, we just vomited in our collective mouth over here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Rollin' 20 Deep

Fortunately, this picture was actually taken a few weeks ago, when the two were attending a party at a club in Miami where DJ AM was spinning. So the horror of meeting Perez might have passed for the Laguna Beach cutie by now.

Speaking of DJ AM, a.k.a. Adam Goldstein, that mofo sure is a master when it comes to the turntables. And he's tapping Mandy Moore, which is a significant upgrade over his ex-fiancee, Nicole Richie. Then again, who isn't.

The sexy Kristin Cavallari helped kick off the grand opening of new Hollywood hot spot Sideways Restaurant & Lounge with an event of her own: a belated 20th birthday celebration.

Yes, Kristin Cavallari is 20.

Beach Hottie

The dinner with about a dozen friends - including actor Nick Zano (What I Like About You), with whom she spent New Year's Eve in Miami - started around 9:15 p.m. Thursday, the same night Britney Spears and her new beau Isaac Cohen also made an appearance at the new tapas joint.

"This is the first time I've seen my friends [in a while] so I'm having the best time," Cavallari told People.

"I'm kind of getting over the club scene. I like this better because you can actually talk to someone instead of yelling at them. You can talk, eat food and just hang out with your friends."

What's this? A star eschewing Hyde? Amazing.

Just a week before that would've been impossible. The former Laguna Beach star ushered in her 20s by having her wisdom teeth removed January 4, the day before her actual birthday.

Instead of partying, Cavallari stayed in bed and watched TV.

"It was actually really nice because I haven't done that in awhile," she said. "But the whole wisdom teeth thing was a pain. Ugh. I'm just sort of able to smile again."

Also seeming to put a smile on her face lately has been Zano, who was recently featured on T.H. Gossip's list of random celebrity boyfriends. The two sat next to each other for most of the night.

"He's a sweet guy," she said. "I'm very happy now. I'm in a happy place."

Wonder if that's anything like this happy place. Regardless, K.C. says she plans on keeping the positive vibe running through 2007. Her new year's resolution is to stop swearing. Says Kristin:

"I've made this resolution, like, five times and it hasn't worked!"

While Britney Spears was yawning up a storm, the super hot Kristin Cavallari rang in 2007 with a kiss from her new boyfriend - and no bad words - on her lips.

"My goal is to stop swearing," the 19-year-old Laguna Beach alumna told People on New Year's Eve at the Miami nightclub Prive. "You can say I have a bit of a potty mouth."

Kristin Cavallari: Short Hair

She and her boyfriend, What I Like About You actor Nick Zano, and six pals arrived half an hour before midnight at the hot spot, where Nick Cannon and Shaquille O'Neal were among the revelers. The was the first New Year's in Miami for Kristin Cavallari.

"It's been such an incredible time, Miami is just so much fun," she said.

As midnight approached, she headed to the DJ booth, took the mic and shouted out the 10-second countdown to 2007. But at the stroke of midnight, she couldn't find her beau.

"Nick! Nick!" she shouted.

Seconds later, he was at her side, and they shared a long, passionate kiss.

Afterward, the two spent the night dancing at their VIP table â€" as well as kissing, with Zano at one point lifting his black blazer off his shoulders so that it would cover his and Cavallari's faces as they did.

The arch-enemy of Lauren Conrad was reportedly all over Zano as drinks were consumed and fun was had by all.

Just after 1:30, they headed out, escorted by two bodyguards.

This PDA was undoubtedly making her ex, Brody Jenner, jealous. Sources say Zano and Cavallari stopped by Nobu at the Shore Club for dinner, and were seated next to Jenner, who was dining with some friends, on-again couple Wilmer Valderrama and Mandy Moore.

"Brody had that ‘caught in the headlights' look," said a spy.

Kristin and Nick proceeded to go skinny-dipping in the pool at their hotel. Excuse us while we go take a cold shower.
