Despite "losing her voice" and canceling a ton of promotional appearances, Jessica Simpson somehow managed to muster up enough energy to hang out with the guys from Jackass until her eyes were bloodshot. And although her new boyfriend wasn't there, her always present and always visible hairstylist was. He's become sort of like a Where's Waldo to me. Where I'll glance around at every picture of Jessica Simpson and see if he's there. Sometimes he'll be in the most unexpected places, like hiding behind a bush. Or riding a ferris wheel. And sometimes on the last page he'll be walking among hundreds of other identical hairstylists wearing the exact same clothes but without his signature hat.
More of Jessica looking like she had a rough night with the Jackass guys after the jump, including some more sideboobery action.
Featured in this weeks issue, the letters spew out a whole lotta of nonsense like, "Mr. Campisi and Ms. Swank are not involved in any romantic, sexual or other inappropriate relationship. As one of Ms. Swank's agents at CAA, Mr. Campisi has a professional, working relationship with Ms. Swank and they have been friends for a couple of years," and "the false and outrageous claim that he is having an illicit, inappropriate extramarital "steamy affair" or a "love relationship" with Ms. Swank is a vile fabrication." Uh huh. Is that why The Enquirer has photos of the couple kissing and holding hands in Rome with Campisi's hand on Hilary Swank's ass? Liar, liar pants on fire! After being photographed on this recent trip in all kinds of compromising positions, it looks like the couple can't deny their relationship for much longer (not that they were doing a very good job of it in the first place). A source told The Enquirer, "John went from being a shoulder to cry on to Hilary's leading man. It wasn't planned, but that's what happened." Agh! How sick am I of that old line "it wasn't planned, it just happened!" Anyway, when Campisi's wife was contacted about the affair, all she told The Enquirer was, "I'm saying nothing."
For more details and scandelous photos of Hilary Swank's dirty, naughty, secret affair, make sure to pick up this week's issue of The National Enquirer. Oh Hilary!

She had a ton of nominations and was under the impression she would be taking home at least one award," our insider said. "But every award, except that lame best-dressed award, went to Kelly Clarkson, and every time Kelly won, the camera went straight to Gwen. She felt set up." Stefani also thought she was going to close the show - another honor that went to Clarkson. Stefani's rep declined comment."
And, the gossips also added fuel to the Diaz/Timberlake breakup fire by reporting, "[Justin's] eyes were wandering. He has not talked about her at all and comes off like a single guy. He is obsessed with his CD and not into having a girlfriend right now."
Earlier this week, Timberlake was a guest on Ellen DeGeneres's talk show; his segment airs next week.
Ellen sought to clear up the rumors of an engagement to Diaz. "Should I go ahead and get a bridesmaid's dress?" she asked.
"Go ahead and reserve one," Justin answered. "But you'll have to stay the same size for the next 15 years!"

PARIS Hilton's career as a pop star is fizzling as quickly as one of her blink-and-you'll-miss-it relationships. In its first week out of the gate, Hilton's first CD is being widely seen as a certified flop. "Paris," which features the single "Stars Are Blind," sold a lackluster 75,000 copies in the United States - a pittance compared to Christina Aguilera's first-week sales of 320,000, according to Soundscan.
And projected sales for next week are said to be a measly 30,000, which is a larger than normal second week drop.
"Paris" is languishing at the bottom of Billboard's Hot 100 - so Hilton's label rushed out her second single, "Turn It Up," which isn't doing very well either.
"The international outlook is not much better for her," one industry source told Page Six. "The international people are not inclined to do a big push since she can't back up the album with a tour. Obviously, she can't sing live."
The source added that Hilton was advised a year ago to train her voice, work with choreographers and learn an instrument to prepare for a limited tour, but "obviously she didn't listen."
Hilton's rep, Elliot Mintz, said, "To me, [the album] sounds huge. For a newcomer, this is incredibly impressive."
Justin Timberlake spent nearly two hours late yesterday visiting sick and injured children at Mount Sinai Hospital, across the street from Central Park, where he'd just taped a concert for daytime television star Ellen DeGeneres' show. "It was a surprise visit, and the kids were, like, screaming," Timberlake's PR rep, Ken Sunshine, told me as the visit was wrapping up. "He went all over the hospital, floor to floor. He does this kind of thing all the time." Girlfriend Cameron Diaz was elsewhere.

Jesse was a guest yesterday on the Steve and Vikki Morning show on Star 94 Atlanta. The interview was supposed to focus on promoting his new album, but it somehow took a detour onto the subject of Jennifer Lopez and her exit from the big-screen adaptation of the TV show "Dallas." Jesse is currently dating Katie Cassidy, who stars as Lucy Ewing in the film. So when Jesse told Steve and Vikki (and all of their listeners) that the reason Jen backed out of the role as Sue Ellen was because she was pregnant, everyone believed he had the real scoop. It now appears, however, that the teen crooner had no idea what he was talking about.
Jesse has just issued an apology to TMZ stating, "I have no first hand knowledge whether Jennifer Lopez is pregnant or not. I thought I had read it somewhere. I apologize."
Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch was threatened by a wildfire Friday.
The blaze burned 40 acres on the ranch and came within a quarter of a mile of the main house. One hundred firefighters battled the blaze, with an assist from water-dropping choppers.
Jackson has been out of the country for months, setting up house in Bahrain. Jackson gave a number of employees pink slips last March, when he closed the house.
No word on the origin or cause of the fire
Imagine for a moment Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone kicking another high profile A-list male movie star to the Melrose Ave. curb and venting to the Wall Street Journal that there is no place on the Paramount lot for a production company that failed to lock down its name.
Plan B, Hollywood (the production shingle partnering Brad Pitt, Paramount Pictures chief Brad Grey and, formerly, Jennifer Aniston), meet Plan B, New Jersey (a morning-after pill concocted by Barr Pharmaceuticals subsidiary Duramed). And only the latter, approved this week by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an over-the-counter, 72-hour post-coital solution, seems to be punch lined with an ®, the ominous symbol for registered trademarks.
Given the long trajectory of medical research and development, you can bet Barr Pharmaceuticals got to the trademark table long before Brad, Jen and Brad's brainstorm. And although deep-pocketed firms like Barr can sometimes choose to sue over the trickier-to-prove adjacent use of a registered term, chances are they might just settle for a Brangelina TV commercial endorsement. Almost makes you wonder if pal George Clooney disbanded his production partnership with Steven Soderbergh because he got wind of a new OBGYN method called C-Section Eight.

Christina Aguilera has scored her first No. 1 album in Britain with "Back to Basics," the pop starlet's tribute to music from a bygone era.
Aguilera peaked at No. 14 with her 1999 self-titled debut set and at No. 2 with "Stripped" in 2002. Three weeks ago, she reached No. 2 on the singles chart with "Ain't No Other Man," which fell four places to No. 7 on the latest chart

A crowd of about 45,000 packed Duesseldorf's LTU Arena Sunday night to watch the first of two German concerts on the worldwide "Confessions" tour.
The crucifixion scene recently drew criticism in Italy, and Duesseldorf prosecutors said last week that they would monitor reports about the concert. They did not, however, send observers.
On Monday, spokesman Johannes Mocken said they would not open an investigation for possible charges of insulting religious beliefs. While the scene might be "hurtful to religious people," there was no indication of a criminal offense, he said.
Mocken said the scene was covered by laws protecting artistic freedom.
The scene — in which Madonna rose from the stage crucified on a mirrored cross and wearing a crown of thorns during her rendition of "Live to Tell" — drew criticism from religious leaders in Italy. They condemned it as an act of hostility toward the Roman Catholic Church.
Madonna's representatives have insisted, however, that the performance on the cross is not disrespectful toward the church.
Madonna is scheduled to perform in Hanover on Tuesday. Authorities there have not publicly expressed concerns about her show's content.

Goodie Bag: Wilmer to Produce "PartyBuddys" Flick, Dick Banned From Event Without Lecter Mask, YouTube Seeks to Put Every Music Video Ever Online
Maniston took the unusual move today of talking to People Magazine to debunk the "tabloid" rumors that she an Vince Vaughn are engaged.
"I'm not engaged and I don't have a ring and I haven't been proposed to," Jen tells People.
There is a ring, bitch!
Perez has the memory of an elephant, and People themselves reported that Vaughn bought Aniston a Suy Fabrikant ring in their own Jen cover story weeks back.
We're starting to think Man is not even engaged to Vaughn anymore, as Life & Style has been reporting.
As Us Weekly has established, Aniston's publicist, Stephen Huvane, has a history of lying to the public on behalf of his star client. And, Jen herself has lied to us. Liar liar, pants on fire!!!!
In the September 2005 issue of Vanity Fair, the arguably funny sitcom star said at the time: "I am not going out with Vince Vaughn. I barely know the guy!"
Aniston also told Elle magazine last year that Vince was "a friend" and swore, "I don't want to be a rebound girl."
Oh how our past comes back to haunt us!
Is Jen covering up that Vince dumped her?
Sources tell PerezHilton.com that Vaughn in early July told several friends - including Owen Wilson - about his proposal on the plane after returning from Mexico.
In her new People interview, Jen never even acknowledges that she is still dating Vince.
"We're just being," she tells the mag of her and Vaughn.
According to our moles, Vaughn was in Vegas this past weekend, and Maniston was nowhere to be found! Trouble in Paradise? Hell to the fucking yeah!
Sources close to the situation tell us that that Jen - who has a history of lying to her fans - is also covering something up this time; specifically, that after their engagement on June 27th something has gone horribly wrong with Vaughniston!!
Tabloids have reported for the last two weeks that there is major trouble with Jen and Vince. Now her denial to People today (and what sources are telling PerezHilton.com) suggests there is truth to these reports that the engagement has been CALLED OFF!!!
WE LOVE IT!
According to several people close to the situation, Maniston is humiliated at another failed relationship and is doing damage control ASAP!
Sources also tell PerezHilton.com that no other than Stephen Huvane sat in on the phone call between Jen and People today, controlling what they could use and couldn't use.
Vaughn spent last weekend partying in Vegas at Mandalay Bay, getting drunk and flirting with girls...just like old times. And Jen stayed back ALONE in Malibu all weekend!
Maniston seems way too emotional and emphatic about denying that she is getting married, telling People, "I mean, it couldn't be more of a 'No.'"
Thou doth protest too much!!
Jennifer has never denied "fake" engagement and/or wedding stories before, but suddenly she is denying the Us story.
Something hit a nerve, sources tell us... like a rough patch with boozing and gambling Vince.
Jennifer Aniston has lied and evaded many times before. This is her MO.
Our friends at all the other weeklies are eating this shit up as much as we are!
Is it possible that Laguna Beach cutie Kristin Cavalarri could have lost her equally as cute boyfriend Brody Jenner to Nicole Richie? Don't have the answer fo' ya, but Brody told us he and Nicole are just pals. We spotted them out dining at an LA cafe yesterday and Nicole was laughing her ass off -- more giggles and smiles than we've ever seen her display while hanging with DJ AM ...

We ran into the petite songbird en route to an appearance to talk up her new double album Back To Basics, and if this appearance is any indication, she shouldn't have any problems getting the word out about it - the only thing hanging onto her more closely than the press is her dress!
Man, I knew Kid Rock liked country music, but has he managed to get Pam Anderson barefoot and pregnant *already*? If that isn't a land-speed record, I'll eat my hat
But pictures don't lie, and these pictures we took of Pam exiting a Malibu store say one thing loud and clear, namely "Check out the bump on Pam's belly"! (Well, okay, that and "Don't walk around Malibu without shoes on if you don't want your feet getting incredibly nasty!")
- Will I ever have another hit movie?
- What ever happened to Bill?
- Will I ever be photographed in short sleeves again?
- When will I shave my hipster neckbeard?
Question -- how many Scientologists does it take to get Katie to Barney's and back home?

It's been a while since we have seen one of our favorite couples and when we finally get new pics of Rachel and Ryan they are not even together. Rachel is currently filming the movie Marriage in Vancouver. One of the many reasons we love this girl - she takes public transportation. She also helps tourists with directions. As for her man, he was looking a bit goofy at the premiere of Half Nelson in NYC but we still love 'em. Hopefully we get pics of them together sometime soon.
It looks like there may not be a reunion for these two on Late Night after all - especially since Paris has been quoted as saying she wants Nicole Richie replaced before The Simple Life goes into Season 5.
She recently said of former BFF Nicole:
"I don't know what happened to her. She just let fame get to her head. I look forward to doing a new Simple Life with someone else."
E! Entertainment Television, the network who screens the show, recently announced they will air a fifth season of the programme but warned they did not want to film the former friends separately again.
Sources close to Kristin Cavallari and Brody Jenner tell us that they have called it quits.
This is not the first time that the pair have taken a breather.
They first took a hiatus from each other earlier this year, during which Kristin quite memorably hooked up with Nick Lachey.
This time, however, sources tell us that the split is for good.Source: PerezHilton

Victoria has ditched her long hair extensions for a much simpler, short summer bob. Recently photos were circulating of Mrs. Beckham losing her hair. Perhaps this was the cure for her hair emergency. Or maybe she just got tired of spending 5 hours and $3,000 every 3 months maintaining those fabulous extensions. Which is longer her hair or her mini skirt?
I really thought I was for a while. Because yesterday, my period started, gave me 2 drops and then stopped the rest of the day and then it didnt start again until this morning. thank god its heavy and starting! i know most girls hate their periods, but i am thankful to see mine. If it hadent of started today, I would have gotten a test this afternoon!
