We call shenanigans on you, Adam Goldstein.

And you too, Amanda Leigh Moore.

Mandy on the Carpet

The "relationship" between the famous people better known as Mandy Moore and DJ AM is obviously just a publicity stunt. Aside from the fact that they seem totally mismatched, let's look at the evidence, shall we?

1. Moore conveniently has a new movie - Because I Said So - coming out very soon, and is begging for credibility as a serious actress. Despite being notoriously private about her personal life, she's suddenly Princess PDA when it comes to our favorite disc jockey. This is a bigger farce than Monday's episode of The Hills.

In fact, she engaged in a lip lock with AM in full view of hordes of paparazzi at the Sundance Film Festival, where she happens to have another film playing. Shocking. Wilmer Valderrama and Zach Braff roll over in their respective graves.

2. Since breaking up with ex-fiance Nicole Richie (dodged a bullet there, Adam!), DJ AM has openly stated how having a big-name girlfriend (please note that Michelle Trachtenberg doesn't qualify) helps him get better gigs. Talk about a relationship of convenience!

So don't be fooled by this charade. Of course, if Mandy Moore wanted to date this writer for publicity, that would be a different story. Call me - (213) FRE-EBRT.

Actress, singer and certified cutie Mandy Moore has been lying low since splitting with her boyfriend of a year and a half, Scrubs star Zach Braff, last June.

But in the February issue of Jane Magazine, a dude-straddling Moore opens up about depression, leaving pop music behind, and why she doesn't like dating. Ooh. Don't tell this to Adam Goldstein, a.k.a. DJ AM (pictured), who's been following Moore around Hollywood and tapping that in the last several weeks.

Mandy Moore's New Hairstyle

Here are some interview excerpts:

On having a quarter-life crisis:
"I've been going through this really crazy time in my life â€" it's what I imagine people fresh out of college go through. I'm asking myself life-altering questions like, ‘Who am I? Where do I fit in this world? What am I doing, what do I want to do? Am I living to my full potential?"

On her early albums:
"I feel bad that people wasted their money on such trite, blah pop music."

THG NOTE: But if you did, it's better than Ashlee Simpson's crap.

On being depressed:
"A few months ago, I felt really low, really sad. Depressed for no reason. I'm a very positive person, and I've always been glass half-full. So it was like someone flipped a switch in me."

On breaking up with Zach Braff:

"The breakup added to what I was going through, but it's not the complete reason. It definitely doesn't help if you're already in that place..."

THG NOTE: Don't tell Braff, who's apparently battling depression already, but on top of DJ AM, Moore has also been linked to Andy Roddick and man whore Wilmer Valderrama.

On leaving pop music behind:

"I could've made a record a year ago with the same people who do everybody's records. But I'm super-proud that I stuck to my guns. You don't have to follow the mainstream. I love pop music but it's not right for me."

On dating:
"I've tried dating a bit, and I don't like it. I know I should be putting myself out there. But I don't really think it's for me. That's not to say I'm ready to jump back into a relationship any time soon. I'm definitely not looking. But it would be fun to have a crush."

On why she doesn't drink:
"I'm a control freak, and I think maybe that's why. I'm too scared to see what will happen. I've been drunk maybe 2-3 times in my life, though I do like to have a glass of wine before going into the studio, to mellow me out."

THG NOTE: Lindsay Lohan does the same thing - you know, just a glass of wine or 15 before she walks onto a movie set.

On her image:
"I kind of am a goody-goody. But I'm not judgmental. I've done a couple of movies [A Walk to Remember, Saved] where I've played Christian characters, so people assume I'm very religious. It's not a completely correct perception of who I am."

On the future:
"I'm still figuring it all out, but I want to be extraordinary. I want to live up to my full potential. I've always been really shy, very ‘don't look at me.' I've wanted to hide. But now I don't want to hide."

New year.

New love.

Mandy Moore Picture

New famous girlfriend to help him get more gigs.

That's the story for Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, who's been getting cozy with the lovely Mandy Moore. The two were seen canoodling at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf hangout in L.A.

"She had a huge smile on her face. When they left, they put their arms around each other," says a witness.

Are they moving too fast? Are Goldstein's anorexic ex-fiancee, Nicole Richie, and Moore's quirky ex-boyfriend, Zach Braff, absurdly jealous right now?

Probably not. But this was at least the fourth outing in the last week alone for the pair, which ranks as the second weirdest newly-dating twosome of the day behind Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood.

DJ Moore (new nickname?) exchanged numbers in Miami Beach over New Year's weekend, and then met up in L.A. days later for a trip to Moore's recording studio (where she played tracks from her next CD).

And what about Moore's other ex, Wilmer Valderrama, with whom she hung out during her New Year's trip?

"Even though she was with Wilmer in Miami, she and DJ AM made plans," says a source close to Goldstein. "They are seeing where it goes."

Goldstein's rep had no comment. Moore's rep doesn't comment on her personal life. Both reps are hereby welcome to eat it.

It was no surprise that Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo swapped a lot of spit on New Year's Eve. They are in love and all that.

But the ringing in of 2007 might also have brought former couples back together. At least for a few hours. Just ask Mandy Moore what we're talking about.

Ohh, Mandy

The young actress and former virgin was spotted hanging out with ex-boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama in Miami. A source said they "had their hands all over each other."

We're not sure what to make of this story - except to be glad the rumors of Valderrama waiting around for Ali Lohan to turn 18 appear to be false.

We'll let you know if other former flames were rekindled over the holiday weekend. But we wouldn't count on any Paul McCartney/Heather Mills reconciliation any time this century.

While less publicized than her relationship with Zach Braff, Mandy Moore can count tennis star Andy Roddick among the men that have courted her.

Get it? Tennis? Courted? Nevermind ...

The two remain friends now, as proven by Moore attending Roddick's first annual Charity Celebrity Poker Tournament at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., Friday night.

"We're cool," the tennis hunk told People magazine about himself and Mandy. "We're doing fine now. She's a good girl, and it says a lot about her to come out tonight."

The pair chatted before celeb guests such as Venus and Serena Williams, Nicky Hilton (who later met up with sister Paris at the South Beach nightclub Ink) and Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough hit the tables.

Roddick and Moore have been friendly for a while: In July, they shared an intimate lunch at the poolside Backyard restaurant at L.A.'s W hotel. But they are not back together - which, of course, cannot be said these days for Paris Hilton and Stavros Niarchos.

Friday's event raised funds for the five-year-old Andy Roddick Foundation, which supports Kids in Distress, A Safe Haven for Newborns and other charities that help abused and at-risk children.

"We proposed the concept and everyone was real excited," Roddick said of the tournament. "We have superstars of the tennis world, the modeling world with the cast of (MTV's) 8th and Ocean, the actress world with Mandy. I'm humbled by everybody that came out tonight. It's pretty cool."

Sadly, Beyonce could not make the event. But her hair stopped by for a few hours.

As Zach Braff downed drinks, partied with friends and unsuccessfully tried to holler at Jessica Simpson at a West Hollywood hotspot, he looked like just another guy on the prowl.

He is.

A source tells Us Weekly that the 31-year old Scrubs star and Mandy Moore, his girlfriend of the past year and a half, have split.

"There was no drama. They were ready. Mandy was very young when they got together and she wanted to see what's out there, now that she's a woman," says the source, who cited their age gap as the primary reason for the breakup. "Zach was mature, and realized it was time to let her do that."

But not everyone close to the quirky Garden State star/producer is certain that he and Moore, the 22-year old actress and singer, are through with each other.

Christa Miller, Braff's Scrubs co-star, said on the June 12 Howard Stern Show that the couple is still together.

Braff's rep did not return repeated, harassing phone calls. Moore's rep does not comment on her personal life. Moore's rep also declined comment on why he/she does not comment on her personal life.
