You might not know it, but Nicole Scherzinger, the only recognizable or even semi-hot of the Pussycat Dolls, and Audrina Patridge of The Hills have a lot in common.

Nicole Scherzinger is currently dating Talan Torriero, who, like, went to his Laguna Beach prom with Kristin Cavallari, who was totally in, like, the rival clique of Lauren Conrad - who's now Audrina Patridge 's roommate! Woo!

Tell us: Who wore it better, Nicole Scherzinger or Audrina Patridge?

Nicole Scherzinger, the only hot or recognizable Pussycat Doll (not counting Asia Nitollano) is trying get away from the stripper stereotype.

No, seriously.

Nicole, who just released her first solo single featuring TI, was in the glamorous port city of San Pedro, Calif. yesterday - filming the music video for the song.

According to sources, Nicole Scherzinger was dressed in a skimpy, bronze-colored designer bathing suit and then asked to do some crazy yoga poses.

A TMZ source said that Nicole Scherzinger was not too happy about the chosen outfit and told executives that she "looked like a whore."

Maybe she's trying to clean up her act for beau Talan Torriero? She would know, as she's used to those "ladylike" Pussycat Doll outfits. Gosh.

Shooting continued for a short period until the studio peeps agreed that the Pussycat Dolls' leader did, in fact, look like a hooker!

Stunning, really.

The set was immediately cleared until a new, more tasteful outfit was found for the overtly sexual photos. Guess you can dress a wolf in sheep's clothing ... or something.

Great stuff. This is the equivalent of Britney Spears pulling the plug on an interview or a photo shoot because she "looks like a mess" or "feels like a total wreck!"

As in piggyback ride, of course.

Nicole Scherzinger, the only recognizable member of the venerable Pussycat Dolls (at least before the sexy Asia Nitollano burst on the scene) loosened up her buttons (uh-huh) and straight up fronted on her boyfriend.

That beau of several months is Laguna Beach alumnus Talan Torriero (really, it is), with Scherzinger on a Hawaiian getaway over the weekend. 

Suffice it to say, that's one wet pussy. Cat. Doll. Sorry.

No word on how the hell Talan Torriero landed a hot babe like Nicole, but the guy once took Kristin Cavallari to a prom, so he's not a complete novice when it comes to the ladies.

Oh, and there was his engagement to Kimberly Stewart, which lasted a whole few days. To think, he was almost Sean Stewart's brother-in-law. Dodged a bullet there, T-squared!

As for Talan's Laguna brethren, Stephen Colletti dates Hayden Panettiere, while Jason Wahler has many court dates. So we'd rate Torriero's efforts somewhere in the middle.

Leave it to the super spies at TMZ to uncover the latest random celebrity couple. Nicole Scherzinger, front-kitty of the Pussycat Dolls, has been spotted with Talan Torriero, the baby-faced, often-overshadowed star of seasons one and two of Laguna Beach.

The pair were seen dining at The Grove in Los Angeles yesterday. Clearly the date wasn't too enthralling, as they are both on their respective phones during lunch. Nicole also hid under a hood and behind giant shades. Weak! hat happened to the rampant exhibitionism we're used to seeing from the Pussycat Dolls!? We're probably just spoiled by Britney Spears.

Some of you gossip hounds may recall that Talan was engaged to Kimberly Stewart for like a day. He also got it on with Kristin Cavallari while on Laguna Beach and has been linked to other stars, including the Ms. Crotch of Fire herself, Lindsay Lohan, since leaving the MTV reality hit and becoming a full-fledged D-List celebrity.

Forget Jason Wahler, this is Laguna Beach's true player. Odds are that he will have broken up with Nicole and be spotted snuggling up to Katie Blair by January 1.

The Pussycat Dolls often garner attention for guest stars that appear on stage alongside this monumentally talented singing group.

Vanessa Minnillo, for example, is the latest pseudo celebrity to take a foray into this feline festival.

Nicole S.

However, as lead singer of the Grammy-nominated pop band, Nicole Scherzinger is opening up to Complex magazine about her background and how her real-life persona differs from the slithering sex bomb seen on TV.

For starters, she's no Lindsay Lohan tramp. In fact, she never really dated.

"I grew up in a conservative Catholic family, so being in the Pussycat Dolls was a big stretch for me," Scherzinger said.

When Nicole joined the group, she had only one request: "I won't be a Pussycat Doll unless you give me a solo deal."

And let's just say that Snoop Dogg was only too happy to close said deal - if you know what we mean!

Anyway, Scherzinger is now working on her solo debut and has a career plan all mapped out: "I want to do movies, another Pussycat Dolls album, and another solo album after that. I want to write my own Broadway musical, too."

Well, sure, who doesn't? In related news, Stavros Niarchos doesn't wish to get any STDs. But we can't always get what we want.
