Has Holly Left Hugh Hefner?



Could there be more drama at the Playboy Mansion?

After weeks of battling rumors that über-Romeo Hugh Hefner may be adding a brunette to his stable of girlfriends and housemate Kendra Wilkinson was being pushed out, Hef's main girl, Holly Madison, was flying solo recently in Las Vegas.

The Girls Next Door star dined at N9NE Steakhouse with a large group of friends before partying it up with magician and ladies' man Criss Angel in the Playboy Club at the Palms Casino Resort. But, no, Holly has not tossed 82-year-old Hugh for 42-years-younger Criss. The 28-year-old was in town on Playboy business.

She was overseeing an upcoming spread on Jessica Burciaga, an ex-Playboy Bunny casino dealer, earlier in the day at the Club and the Pink Suite in the Palms Fantasy Tower.

Johnny Depp Rocks Out for a Good Cause



Johnny Depp went back to one of his first loves – playing the guitar – at a benefit concert in Pompano Beach, Fla., Friday night.

The Oscar nominee played a 90-minute set with his bandmates from The Kids, a power-pop group formed in 1978 when Depp was a South Florida high schooler, at the 2,800-seat Club Cinema.

And Depp had two of his biggest fans in the audience watching him: girlfriend Vanessa Paradis and their 9-year-old daughter Lily-Rose, who sat together in the venue's box seats as Depp smiled up at them from the stage (son Jack, 6, was not at the show).

Last year, Depp reunited with his band for a similar gig, held in honor of the band’s late manager, Sheila Witkin, with proceeds donated to the Dan Marino Foundation. The former Miami Dolphin football player's charity funds programs for children with special needs – including the Marino Autism Research Institute. Marino's 17-year-old son Michael has autism.

Earlier in the day, the actor – who arrived in South Florida with his family on Thursday to give him some time to rehearse – posed for photos with Marino and his bandmates.

Onstage at Club Cinema, Depp – who dressed down in a blue T-shirt with holes, torn jeans and a flannel shirt tied around his waist – blended in with his fellow band members, playing lead electric guitar and singing background vocals on some of the band's original tunes, as well as covers of classics like The Ronettes’ "Be My Baby."

Lily-Rose cheered on her dad during the performance, and the proud daughter even snapped some photos of him with a disposable camera.

Ryan Cabrera: Ashlee Will Be a 'Great Mom'



Ryan Cabrera rarely sees his former flame Ashlee Simpson these days, but he saw enough in their relationship that he doesn't doubt her parenting ability.

"She'll be a great mom," the singer told PEOPLE Friday at the opening of Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant in Las Vegas.

Cabrera, who dated Simpson in 2004 and was reportedly the subject of her song "Pieces of Me", said, "She's just a good person and she's dedicated to her family."

Recently Simpson, 23, said she and husband Pete Wentz, 29, have been busy baby-proofing the house and getting a nursery together. None of this surprises Cabrera about the couple.

"It's a good family. It will be a good home."

In a recent posting on her blog, Simpson denied the Internet rumor that she cried and went shopping for size 0 jeans after her doctor told her she'd gained too much weight. "1. My doctor says I am right on target with my weight gain. 2. Have not been to Planet Blue in at least two years. 3. Love my maternity jeans ... they have stretchy tops it is awesome!" the singer writes.

"Carrying a child is the most inspiring, emotional, amazing experience of my life," Simpson continues. "My weight and my pant size are the absolute last thing I am concerned about. I am only concerned with having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. People who talk and judge pregnant women's weight need to get a life!!!"

Charlize Theron at the premiere of “The Burning Plain” (August 29).




The Academy Award-winning South African actress both starred in and acted as executive producer for the Guillermo Arriaga directed drama.

“It is an exploration of this mystery of a woman who has an emotional journey that takes her to extremes,” explained Arriaga. “I wanted to explore how people can get so damaged.”

Meanwhile, Charlize offered up a little advice to anyone who wishes to take on the producer’s role, as she tells: “No one sitting up here was thinking they’d come out rich. But we can all say we’ve done something we’re incredibly proud with, which is something money can’t buy. You are kidding yourself if you think you’ll be walking away with a multi-million dollar house.”

She was one of the longest-reigning queens of prime time television, playing the role of Rachel Green on “Friends.” And it sounds like Jennifer Aniston is returning to the small screen this fall season.

According to her rep, Steven Huvane, the “Rumor Has It” actress will be guest starring on NBC’s hit comedy “30 Rock.” He told press, “She is shooting now. We are not giving out any specifics on her character.

The “Good Girl” actress is no stranger to guest spots on tv series, as she’s appeared on both “Dirt” and “South Park” in the past.

And now that she’s single again (Jen and John Mayer split earlier this month) it looks like Miss Aniston will have even more time to concentrate on her acting career.

Jack Black Can’t Fart As Good As a Computer




Jack Black is addicted to green tea after quitting smoking.

The 'Tropic Thunder' star - who recently welcomed his second child with wife
Tanya Haden into the world - admits he has replaced his nicotine habit with
a new vice.

He said: "I don't do anything exciting or dangerous really. I quit smoking,
that was my last real vice. But I do like iced green tea - but that is so
boring."

Jack also revealed he can't stop playing video games.

He added: "I really like playing 'Grand Theft Auto IV'. It's one of these
games that takes 100 hours to conquer."

Jack recently admitted he wants to produce his own flatulence for his film
roles, after playing a character who can pass wind on command in 'Tropic
Thunder'.

He said: "I didn't do any of my own stunts in the fart department, it was
all with the help of computers. They don't have the technology to place the
microphones in the inner canal of my inner cavity at this point. Someday
soon I hope they'll have the science and it will catch up to my flatulent
talent."

Angelina Jolie’s New Health Scare

It has been reported that Angelina is having a difficult time at home with the twins. She is having a difficult time as mother to six children. Sleep-deprived and emotional, Angelina is said to be receiving medical treatment for her stress. A source tells Now Magazine,

“She’s in tears up to three times a day and so tired that Brad’s found her collapsed asleep in the bath twice. “She’s been working around the clock, breast-feeding the babies and trying to get them to sleep. But as soon as one of them drops off, the other wakes up for another feed. “She’s also not eating very much right now and blames that on being busy. The doctor says that she needs more calories to gain strength and ensure that her breast milk is healthy.”

The magazine also reports how the couple have hired help on hand at all times and are now looking for a nurse to stay for six weeks. It sounds like Angelina could do with some time off.

Kate Bosworth out at Chateau Marmont with her man (August 28).



Meanwhile, in disappointing news, Miss Bosworth will not be reprising her role as Lois Lane in the follow-up to “Superman Returns”.

“’Superman’ didn’t quite work as a film in the way that we wanted it to,” a studio exec told press. “It didn’t position the character the way he needed to be positioned. Had ‘Superman’ worked in 2006, we would have had a movie for Christmas of this year or 2009, but now the plan is just to reintroduce Superman. We’re going to try to go dark to the extent that the character allows it.”

Nonetheless, Kate’s been keeping busy with two brand new films, “The Laundry Warrior”, which is in post-production and due out later this year, along with “After.Life”, in which Kate’s slated to portray “a young woman caught between life and death, who fights against the funeral director who has a hand in her fate.”

She told press, “There isn’t a woman in the world that doesn’t have a friend or a partner who’s actually experiencing some sort of violence against them, so I think although domestic violence hasn’t happened to me personally, I certainly know women who are dealing with this struggle every day.”

Reese noted that domestic violence, “affects women who are famous, who are not famous, women who have money, women who have no money. This is an issue that crosses all boundaries and it certainly affects everyone.”

She also announced the Avon bracelet sale, which finances the charity, and gave one to Maria da Penha Maia Fernandes (a paraplegic woman who suffered at the hands of her violent husband) as a symbol of hope.

Tim Gunn says Jennifer Aniston is a “desperate character”



Sometimes I think she has ‘desperate character’ written on her,” Tim told OK! at the Manhattan launch party for Tide and Downy Total Care. “The clothes we wear send a message. And I think that’s the message — I don’t think that’s her intention though.”

The acid-tongued Project Runway star, who recently ripped into Miley Cyrus for being “too tarty,” didn’t have all bad things to say about the former Friends actress. “She’s a gorgeous woman and she understands her fashion,” said Tim.

Mario Lopez And Karina Smirnoff Back Together?

After all that drama... they get back together? It isn't confirmed yet by a rep... so I'll hold off saying anything rash.

Mario Lopez is reportedly back with his ex-girlfriend, Dancing with the Stars partner Karina Smirnoff. The actor split with Smirnoff earlier this year after an 18-month romance, which began when they were paired up as partners on the reality TV competition. And the pair appear to be romancing again after being seen canoodling over dinner at New York’s Bagatelle restaurant, according to reports.

A source tells New York gossip column PageSix, "They were super-flirty," and added that the pair were "very happy, kissing and cuddling".

Michael Phelps Carrie Underwood Dating:




Fourteen Olympic medals has superhuman swimmer Michael Phelps looking very good to country singing star Carrie Underwood.

Michael was over the moon after hearing a rumor that the one-time American Idol thinks he is “cute.” According to celebrity tattles on-site at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, the twentysomethings are frequently texting each other and have already begun planning a “quiet first date” near Carrie’s home in Nashville, Tennessee.

An excited Michael is hoping there won’t be too much eating involved on this outing. The 23-year-old athlete told Carrie, “I’m not so sure you’d want to see me eat! It might not make a great first impression.”

“Carrie needs someone who is going to stick by her,” a skeptical pal of Carrie’s revealed to the National Enquirer. “She was devastated when her relationship with Tony Romo broke. The last thing she needs is a relationship with another high-profile celebrity who’s going to end up loving and leaving her.”

Hilary Duff out and about LA yesterday afternoon (August 27).



With Lindsay Lohan and Hayden Panettiere both having to deal with fatherly problems, it seems Hilary Duff would be a good sympathizer.

Yesterday (August 27), the “So Yesterday” singer’s father was ordered by a Texas court to pay $12,500 to his ex-wife for Hilary’s 21st birthday party and her present.

He was also ordered to spend 10 days in a Texas jail for being in contempt of court. Reportedly Bob Duff was found to have violated an injunction against selling assets without court approval due to his current divorce battle with ex-wife Susan.

The $12,500 was only half of the $25,000 Susan was seeking, though Bob will also have to fork over $367,537 for some stocks he sold back in July.
