Cruisazy Continues

Actress Katie Holmes has changed more than just her religion since she started dating Tom Cruise last year - she's now altered her first name.

Despite her strict Catholic upbringing, the former Dawson's Creek beauty converted to Scientology when she began her relationship with the Top Gun heart-throb, and will bring up their baby daughter Suri in the controversial religion. After discussing the issue with Cruise, Holmes has decided her Christian name 'Katie' sounds too young for a 27-year-old and is now known to friends and family as 'Kate'.

Cruise explains, "Katie is a young girl's name." "Her name is Kate now she's a child-bearing woman."

--I thought we could all use some pre-Cruisazy KatIE, so I chose an older pic.

Rosie Heads To The View

Rosie O'Donnell is joining the current game of TV musical chairs. On Friday, a formal announcement is expected to name the former talk show host as the replacement for Meredith Vieira on The View.

ABC officials declined comment on the prospect of O'Donnell's hiring, which was first reported on TV's Extra, but several news sources have confirmed the casting.

The Rosie O'Donnell Show debuted in 1996 and was an instant hit, earning its star, now 44, six Daytime Emmy Awards as best talk-show host. In 2002, O'Donnell called it quits to help raise four children with her partner, Kelli Carpenter O'Donnell. The two recently appeared together front and center on the HBO special All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise, a documentary about the maiden voyage of R Family Vacations, the travel company founded by Rosie and Kelli, which specializes in gay family vacations.

--Sweet. I can't wait for a Star-Rosie blowout.

Spade On Stern

David Spade has to overcome his fear before he goes on "The Howard Stern Show."

"If I didn't actually believe he thought I was funny, I'd never go on," Spade confesses in Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People issue.

"He doesn't do a lot of, 'Your movie's great.' He does a lot of, 'You're not good-looking, girls only date you because you're on TV, most of your movies suck, you probably killed Chris Farley, you're jealous of [Adam] Sandler, I have a caller that says he hates you.' "

Cruise Won't Lend His Likeness

The guy in the red cape, Professor X's favorite mutants and even the folks searching for biblical codes are all getting video games this summer. But there's one Hollywood summer action hero who won't be appearing on a PlayStation near you anytime soon: "Mission Impossible" 's Ethan Hunt.

There is no "Mission: Impossible III" home console game due this summer or even in the planning stages, relegating the only "M:i:III" gaming option to a cell phone one that launches May 5, the same day as the movie.

So why would "The Da Vinci Code" get a PS2 game and not "M:i:III"? Tom Cruise. He has never appeared in a video game or even on the box art for a game, neither for 1987's "Top Gun" NES game nor the 2006 game based on the same movie, not for the one "Mission: Impossible" game released since Cruise began starring in the movie series, and not in 2002's "Minority Report." In that game, Cruise's character was made to look so unlike him that he was blonde.

Famous people sometimes don't lend their likenesses to video games for business or personal reasons, though they seldom publicly explain why. Al Pacino's representatives have declined in the past to comment about why the actor wasn't included in last year's "The Godfather" game (he will appear in this year's "Scarface," however). Tom Hanks doesn't appear in the forthcoming "Da Vinci Code" game, though, like Pacino's Michael Corleone in "The Godfather," his actual character will appear in the game. When asked why gamers haven't been able to ever play a game as Tom Cruise and if they can hope to control his likeness in the future, the actor's agent declined to comment.

There is little doubt that the impossible missions of "Mission: Impossible" would make for a good video game, but Michael Pachter, an analyst who covers video games for Wedbush Morgan Securities, pointed out that movie titles still carry a hefty risk. "Royalty rates for movie titles are generally high," he said. "It takes a great deal of confidence in the sales prospects to commit to the game. 'Catwoman' was a bust, 'Batman' a modest success. So it's not clear that a 'M:i:III' game would sell well, especially if the main character was blond."

Snoop Arrested

Snoop Dogg was released on bail Thursday after a fracas over access to a first-class lounge at Heathrow Airport, which injured seven police officers, his lawyers said.

The 34-year-old rapper was driven away from the airport's police station, police said, while speaking on condition of anonymity in line with department policy. They did not give details of five other men arrested with him. "Snoop has been released on bail," said his attorney, Peter Binning. "He will return at a later date."

London's Metropolitan Police said officers responded late Wednesday to reports of a disturbance involving 30 people at British Airways' first-class lounge. When officers told the group they wouldn't be allowed to board their flight, "a number of the group became abusive and pushed officers," a police spokeswoman said on the force's customary condition of anonymity. The six men were arrested on charges of "violent disorder and affray" -- or creating a brawl or disturbance -- and spent the night at London police stations. Police said all those arrested were U.S. citizens in their 30s. Seven officers received cuts, bruises and other minor injuries, the force said.

Snoop and his party were denied entry into the lounge because some were flying first class while others were flying economy class, said Richard Goodfellow, a spokesman for British Airways. "They became very rude and abusive to our staff and we took the decision to ... refuse them travel," Goodfellow said.

Fiddy Spreads Healthy Habits

50 Cent has sold millions of records serving kids from the hood to the 'burbs a steady diet of gangsta rap. Now, he's part of a new campaign to make his young fans healthier.

50 is a spokes-rapper and judge for a nationwide cooking competition aimed at preventing childhood obesity by improving high school students' eating habits. It is sponsored by Glaceau, the company partly owned by the rapper and that sells his grape-flavored Vitamin Water drink, Formula 50. Student chefs in cities including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle will compete to create the most "nutrient-rich" cafeteria lunch recipe, Glaceau has announced. The winner will receive a $100,000 college scholarship.

In an interview with The Associated Press earlier this week, 50 said he thinks "it's a lot more difficult for kids" to stick to a healthy diet. 50, who has bared his washboard abs on album covers, said he wasn't always so physically fit. "I had all of the unhealthy habits," the 29-year-old rapper said. "Soda ... a lot of fast food, all those things."

He said he tries to avoid sweets, sneaking soda when it's "available," but often substituting it, naturally, with Glaceau beverages. The savvy businessman, who has his own record label, G-Unit, and a sneaker line with Reebok, said his refrigerator is stocked with "a lot" of the drinks. "It's a better reflection of my lifestyle," he said. "I don't drink alcohol and I don't need an energy drink."

Keira Snags Kate's Gig

Chanel has selected Pride & Prejudice star Keira Knightley as the new face of its Coco Mademoiselle fragrance.

The 21-year-old actress will appear in Chanel ads beginning in 2007, the company announced Wednesday. Knightley succeeds Kate Moss, whose contract expired last October. The 32-year-old British supermodel had starred in the Coco Mademoiselle ads since 2002. Moss lost several high-profile modelling contracts last year after a tabloid published pictures of her allegedly using cocaine in a west London music studio.

"Keira Knightley is a bright, young actress who has already made her mark in a diverse portfolio of films, including her Oscar-nominated performance in Pride & Prejudice," said Chanel artistic director Jacques Helleu in a statement. He also said Knightley's elegance, beauty and modernity parallel some of the brand's other previous famous faces, including Catherine Deneuve and Nicole Kidman, who represented Chanel No. 5.

"(I am) really proud to have been asked to work with such an iconic house as Chanel, and thrilled to follow the extraordinary women who have been associated with it before," Knightley said in a statement.

--I think this is a perfect choice.

Bon Jovi's First

Bon Jovi has made history by becoming the first rock band to top the U.S. country chart. The group's single "Who Says You Can't Go Home" qualifies for the country music countdown because it is a duet with Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles.

The song, which features prominently on the stars' recent album Have A Nice Day, won the Best Collaborative Video Award at the Country Music Television Awards earlier this month.

Cooper Heads To CBS

CNN's Anderson Cooper will become a contributor to "60 Minutes" under a deal he's hammering out with CBS.

Cooper will stay at CNN as the host of "Anderson Cooper 360" and will contribute occasional reports to "60 Minutes" - which will also air on Cooper's show. It will be the second time the networks have shared on-air talent. Cooper's CNN stablemate, Christiane Amanpour, contributed to "60 Minutes" for several years. Reps for CBS and CNN would neither confirm nor deny the deal.

Cooper, who turns 39 in June, would be the youngest "60 Minutes" contributor by far. He would also add another fresh face to the venerable newsmagazine. Katie Couric, who's jumping to CBS to anchor the "CBS Evening News," will also get a "60 Minutes" slot.

Ashlee Simpson has joked that she is more attractive than sister Jessica.

The singer claims she is prettier than the Dukes Of Hazzard star, despite denying rumors of sibling rivalry in the past. She is quoted in Daily Record newspaper as saying: "I'm taller than she is and my legs are longer than hers. I got lucky because my chest size isn't completely massive."

--"Lucky" she doesn't have Jessica's chest? Please. And, she forgot to mention that her face is fugly. Minor detail.

Cruiseazy Collaboration

Tom Cruise is planning to reignite his fiancee Katie Holmes' career following the recent birth of their first child together, by co-starring in a movie with her.

The actor, who famously made the ill-fated 1999 explicit drama Eyes Wide Shut with his then wife Nicole Kidman, is convinced a Hollywood collaboration would help maintain their romantic spark, while allowing them to successfully co-parent baby Suri.

He says, "I can't wait to do a movie with Kate. I don't think working together is a bad idea at all, a relationship can definitely work under that pressure if you like someone enough."

--Kill me now.

The Elusive Pic

Expecting the birth of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's baby, photographers are out in force in Namibia hoping for the $1 million picture.

Paparazzi have flocked from around the world to the country's Langstrand resort – where the couple are staying - hoping to be the first to capture them with the newborn. Photo agency founder Darren Lyons said his company Big Pictures has a team in the area. "It would be one of the biggest celebrity pictures of all time if there was a genuine exclusive," he explained. "It would be over a million dollars."

His employees' job will not be easy, however. The resort is surrounded by cloth screens and police are on-side with private security guards to protect the pair. They have expelled some photographers already and a guard has resorted to pepper spray to fend off one.

Also, the couple are keen to control any access the media do get. One report suggests Jolie has sold exclusive rights to pictures of the baby to People, in return for a $3.5 million donation to UNICEF. One television show has already conducted an exclusive interview with Jolie in the country.

Rhianne van der Linde, of South African media group Media 24, thinks an exclusive shot is unlikely. "There are two options," she commented. "Either Brad and Angelina decide to schedule an exclusive photo shoot with a reputable magazine and photographer, or they are going to make a public appearance and the paparazzi can gather and everybody gets the same shot. "That would take the price down to normal levels," she said.

One photographer complained of the difficulties they were having. "I'm disguised as a sand dune but I'm getting absolutely nothing," he joked. "This has really gotten out of hand. There is a no-fly zone over the hotel, it is an unprecedented display of police power. It is really ominous."

Mandy's Horrified

Singer/actress Mandy Moore was mortified when she appeared on the May cover of Cosmopolitan magazine with the racy headline 'orgasms unlimited' next to her face.

The hitmaker was embarrassed by the headline, especially when she had to show the magazine to her conservative parents. She explains, "I'm very flattered to be on a magazine cover, but the horrifying part is my parent's have framed every magazine that I've ever been on from the beginning. "So there's a whole wall dedicated to that and it starts off with me at 14 and 'Mandy's favorite colour is pink!' and now Cosmo and my face and 'orgasms unlimited.' "And my dad has to take it to the framer's to get it framed. It has nothing to do with me - it's just an article (that appears in the magazine)!"

Friends Forever

It's been a pretty divisive month for fans of Zack Morris, and you can blame it all on the people behind Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

Everything was fine until the programmers at Swim — Cartoon Network's nightly block of alternative 'toons — decided to pluck "Saved by the Bell" from syndicated limbo and add it to their weekly lineup. The move was greeted with the ire of Swim's loyal fanbase (sample reactions on the Adult Swim message board: "This had better be a joke ... or there'll be a jihad for the next two weeks!" and "We're one step closer to getting 'Murder She Wrote.' ... Excellent move").

Randomly selected episodes of "Bell" — a Saturday morning staple on NBC from 1989-'93 — began airing April 17 and are scheduled to wrap up this week with the broadcast of the epic "Snow White and the Seven Dorks" episode, where the gang at Bayside High puts together a hip-hop version of "Snow White."

Reacting to viewer feedback, Adult Swim decided to take things to the next level. On April 19, the network released a statement claiming "Saved by the Bell" was headed back into production, with Cartoon Network ordering 30 new episodes of the show. According to Matt Laster (identified in the statement as "the VP of Turner Entertainment's newly created '80s Reclamation Department"), most of the original cast was already on board for the new edition of "Bell." "The series will follow the events after 'Saved by the Bell: The New Class' and finds Screech as the new principal of Bayside [with] a retired Mr. Belding as the proprietor of the Max, the hangout that the 'Saved by the Bell' gang frequented," the statement read. "Screech is overwhelmed by the new group of students and puts out a call for help, and soon all of the old regulars are back at Bayside."

Of course, news of the resurrected "Saved by the Bell" quickly made its way around the Internet. Most seemed to greet the news with cautious optimism — after all, several castmembers have gone on to bigger and better things (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played Zack, has logged time on "NYPD Blue" and "Commander in Chief"), or at least just bigger things (Elizabeth Berkley, who played brainy Jessie Spano, starred in "Showgirls"). It seemed unlikely that they'd choose to revisit roles they left more than a decade ago. Also, Laster's title seemed to reek of fakery, and it was Adult Swim, which seemed capable of pulling off a prank of this magnitude.

It turns out the whole announcement was nothing more than that: a really big joke. According to James Anderson, the vice president of public relations for Adult Swim, there are no plans to bring "Bell" back. And while Matt Laster is an actual Swim employee, he's not the VP of anything.

--I was skeptical when I first heard the news a few weeks back, so I didn't post it. I'm glad I didn't.

Elle, Can You Hear Me?

A musical version of Legally Blonde, based on the hit movie starring Reese Witherspoon and the novel by Amanda Brown, will open on Broadway in April 2007.

The show, which has music and lyrics by Nell Benjamin and Laurence O'Keefe and a book by Heather Hach, tells the story of a determined young woman, who, when dumped by her boyfriend, goes to Harvard Law School, which her ex also attends.

No casting was announced, but the show will mark the Broadway directorial debut of Jerry Mitchell, who won a 2005 Tony Award for his choreography for the revival of La Cage aux Folles. "I love the story," Mitchell said Tuesday of his new project. "It's so positive, especially for young girls to believe in themselves. And it's fun to root for a leading character you care about."

Mitchell, who also created the dances for Hairspray and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, also will do the choreography for Legally Blonde. The show will open April 26, 2007, at a Broadway theater to be announced. Preview performances begin March 30. San Francisco will see the musical first, with a five-week engagement at the Orpheum Theatre beginning in late January.

--Two words: I'm there.

Couldn't He Make Himself Disappear?

Magician David Copperfield and two female assistants were robbed at gunpoint on Sunday night, after a performance in West Palm Beach, Florida.

At 11:15pm, the illusionist and his assistants, Cathy Daly and Mia Volmut, were walking back to their tour bus when a black car pulled up beside them. According to a statement issued by Copperfield's representative, "At first we thought they were just more people wanting autographs. They told us to give them money and our stuff. At that point we realized that there were guns in our face."

His assistants handed over money, plane tickets and other various items. Copperfield turned his pockets inside out to show he had nothing on him - a sleight of hand by the illusionist, who later showed police he was carrying a passport, wallet and cell phone. As the assailants drove away, Copperfield and Daly took down the car's license plate numbers and called the police.

Officers quickly arrived on the scene and captured the suspects, who were later positively identified by the victims. Police say four teenagers were arrested, charged with armed robbery and held without bond and all stolen property was recovered. Copperfield's statement added, "I look forward to coming back to Palm Beach in the future, knowing that crime can happen anywhere, but from what I witnessed from the officers that night, we were lucky to be in Palm Beach when it did happen."

--And he calls himself a magician...

Baldwin Causes Actress To Quit

"Entertaining Mr. Sloane" could be retitled "Exiting Jan Maxwell."

The actress left the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of the Joe Orton comedy last Sunday after complaining about the behavior of her co-star, Alec Baldwin.

She will be replaced by her understudy, Barbara Sims, for the remainder of the play's run, which ends May 21 at the Roundabout's Laura Pels Theatre. Maxwell's departure was first reported Wednesday in the New York Post, which obtained a copy of an e-mail the actress sent to a friend about Baldwin. In the note, the actress declared that the "bottom line was my physical safety, mental health and artistic integrity - none of which Roundabout was supporting."

In the e-mail, Maxwell said Baldwin put his fist through a wall and was "throwing things around with all of us cowering," and Maxwell accused Baldwin of giving the Roundabout an ultimatum: refusing to go on with her.

The nonprofit theater said the actress had give the production three weeks notice last week, refusing to stay until the end of the run.

After 10 years of separation, Calvin and Kelly Klein are over for good.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Harold Beeler quietly signed their divorce judgment two weeks ago. Although they'd been living apart for so long that many assumed they were already officially kaput, Kelly only filed for divorce March 17, The Post's Dareh Gregorian reports. Lawyers for the pair tried hard to keep the news to themselves. Their file was removed from the record room even though it was already sealed, and Kelly convinced another judge, Lucindo Suarez, to let the case be filed as Anonymous vs. Anonymous.

A Chorus Line Is Back!

They entered, one by one, to stand on the bare stage of the Hudson Theatre - the new line in `A Chorus Line," the 19 performers who will appear in the first Broadway revival of the landmark Michael Bennett musical.

The production will open Oct. 5 at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre with preview performances beginning Sept. 18. Before New York, "A Chorus Line" will play the Curran Theatre in San Francisco, July 23-Sept. 2. "I love the idea that a whole new cast of characters, a whole new audience is going to see what we think is a very important and wonderful show," Marvin Hamlisch, the show's composer, said Wednesday before the cast came out on stage.

The musical, created and choreographed by Bennett from the real-life stories of chorus dancers, opened at the Public Theater on May 21, 1975, before moving to Broadway later that year. It ran for nearly 15 years, closing in 1990 after a run of 6,137 performances.

Rub Down

It's official - it was none other than Kevin Costner who was accused of masturbating in front of a female masseuse.

For months, rumors swirled that a Hollywood hunk had done that during a rubdown at the Old Course Hotel in St. Andrews, Scotland. The story emerged in a lawsuit filed by the 31-year-old masseuse, who said she'd been unfairly fired after complaining. While the star wasn't identified, Costner's name emerged in the press.

This week, the hotel settled the suit and the court ruled there was no good reason to keep his name a secret. His spokesman, Paul Bloch, danced around whether there was any truth to the claim. "This was never about Kevin Costner. This was a dispute between a hotel and an ex-employee. [There] were accusations made that were never proven," Bloch told Page Six's Bill Hoffmann. Costner, 51, was honeymooning with new wife, Christine, when he went for the massage. The masseuse told the court, "I couldn't believe he thought he could get away with [it]. When I was giving his wife a massage afterwards, I wanted to tell her everything."

--While he was on his HONEYMOON? Quality...

The woman, one of Piven's best friends, apparently was too "tired" to walk to Piven's car after leaving Shag, according to Piven's publicist. Piven, who didn't valet his car, agreed to carry her.

Piven was able to get the young woman safely in his car and drove away.

Rodriguez Heads To Slammer

Lost actress Michelle Rodriguez pleaded guilty to DUI charges in Hawaii Tuesday.

The judge at Kaneohe District Court in Oahu offered Rodriguez, 27, a choice between 240 hours of community service or five days in jail. Rodriguez chose the jail time. She will also pay a $500 fine. Her sentence – minus one day for the night she spent in jail following her Dec. 1 arrest – began Tuesday, although Rodriguez was first allowed to go home to gather some necessities.

After her sentencing, Rodriguez, dressed in a brown leather jacket and ankle-length white ruffled skirt, apologized for her attitude toward police officers the night of her arrest (she allegedly told an officer: "I don't (expletive) belong here! Why don't you just put a gun to my head and shoot me!").

She said that her behavior was influenced by steroids she's been taking for allergies since she arrived in Hawaii. She also said she'd learned to drive only for a "racing movie" – presumably 2001's The Fast and the Furious.

Margolis To Pose

Cindy Margolis, known as the "Most Downloaded Woman" on the Internet, is following up her win on "Celebrity Cooking Showdown" with a career first — posing nude for Playboy.

The mother of three told The Associated Press that she finally agreed to pose for the magazine when they called on her 40th birthday. "Thank goodness for 'Desperate Housewives.' You're not dead just because you are married and have children," the actress and model said Monday, on the phone from her Los Angeles home.

After turning down offers to pose for the magazine in the past, Margolis said she accepted this time because she felt posing nude at the age of 40 is empowering. "In the past it would have been for gratuitous reasons," she said.

Now, Margolis said, she is enjoying being the ultimate desperate housewife. "It will be fun to go up against the 20-year-olds and show them that they don't have anything on me," she said. She has made headlines in recent years for her struggles with infertility. She is the national spokeswoman for Resolve: The National Infertility Association and is also writing a book about the subject. "I just want to make it more mainstream for people to understand infertility, to understand surrogacy and adoption," she said.

Margolis, a former "Price is Right" model, gave birth to son Nicholas in 2002 after a high-risk pregnancy. The child was her first with husband, Guy Starkman. In 2005 Margolis and Starkman welcomed twins Sabrina and Sierra into the family. The twins were carried by a surrogate mother, and are biologically the couple's by in-vitro fertilization.

Note to celebs: Watch your backs with Jann Wenner!

Nick Lachey and his new handlers at Sunshine Consultants are said to be furious with the Wenner Media boss after he dangled the promise of a Rolling Stone cover in front of the singer - and put him on Us Weekly instead.

Lachey, an insider said, gave an interview to Rolling Stone about the breakup of his marriage to Jessica Simpson, expecting the cover. "At the end of the day, Rolling Stone said he needed to dish more on Jessica and Joe Simpson," a source said. "Nick said no . . . in the dark of the night, Jann gave the photos and the interview to Us Weekly."

Lachey, who never wanted to be on the cover of Us Weekly, quickly fired his reps at Baker Winokur Ryder who had brokered the deal, and hired Sunshine. The insider added: "It's absurd to dangle the cover in front of someone, and if it doesn't work out, just hand it to another magazine. We will think twice before dealing with Wenner again." A source added: "The Us Weekly issue [with an oiled-up, shirtless Lachey on the cover] sold really well in Chelsea, but that's about it. It was the gayest cover in years."

Can't Even Be Single For 5 Minutes

Denise Richards and Richie Sambora have been getting cozy: The pair were spotted kissing in Southern California this weekend..

On Saturday, Richards, 35, and Sambora, 46, the soon-to-be ex-husband of Heather Locklear, arrived at Le Café in the Westlake Village neighborhood outside Los Angeles at about 5 p.m. in separate cars. In the parking lot, the two kissed then walked hand-in-hand, smiling and chatting the entire way as they headed for the restaurant.

Inside, they shared a table in the covered patio where they gazed into each other's eyes and held hands across the table. Eventually, Richards planted a kiss on Sambora's hand – and he returned the gesture, kissing hers. They then kissed again on the lips. They left the restaurant at 5:45 p.m. in the same car together. Sambora has a home in Westlake Village.

Richards and Locklear are pals who grew even closer during Richards's split from Sheen. Locklear, who starred with Sheen in Spin City, attended Richards's baby shower before she gave birth to her daughter Lola – and helped take care of the baby after she was born.

Idol Feud

Although American Idol host Ryan Seacrest often trades barbs with judge Simon Cowell, now the tension between him and another judge, Paula Abdul, has reached a boiling point.

"It's awkward. I don't know what the deal is. It's very awkward," Seacrest, 31, said on Friday, referring to his relationship with Abdul. Asked if he was speaking to Abdul, Seacrest answered: "No."

Seacrest, who was in Las Vegas at a groundbreaking event for the new luxury Panorama Towers, said he hasn't yet confronted his fellow Idol cast mate. "You know, I walked past her dressing room the other day and there was a group of people gathered in front of the door, so I can't even talk to her. Simon and I go back and forth with each other, but it's in a different way."

A source close to Seacrest says the Idol host was joking about the feud. But another inside source says that Seacrest and Abdul’s relationship has been “icy” since they each appeared separately on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno recently.

In Seacrest's March 30 appearance, Leno said that Abdul had seemed "a little loopy" on a recent episode of Idol to which Seacrest replied, "Well, have you listened to her album?" When Leno playfully asked whether Abdul had been drinking, Seacrest answered, "Hey look, I don't look in their cups to see what's sitting before them on that table. But at times I feel like we have reeled her in."

Abdul, 43, had a chance to shoot back when she appeared on the show on April 10. Leno brought out an issue of Rolling Stone magazine that featured the three Idol judges prominently on the cover (and Seacrest in a small photo) and asked whether Seacrest was mad about being excluded. "I heard plenty mad," replied Abdul.

Next, Leno asked whether Seacrest was dating Teri Hatcher since the pair had been photographed kissing. "He only kisses the mirror," said Abdul. "And honestly, do you think Teri Hatcher is that desperate of a housewife?"

Not A Couple?

It looks like Nick Lachey is still looking for a new love.

The whispers had been that the Newlyweds star, who split with wife Jessica Simpson in November 2005, was dating MTV VJ Vanessa Minnillo. But the lady herself has laughed it all off, insisting they're just good friends.

Vanessa stars as the object of Nick's affections in the video for his new single What's Left Of Me. She told San Francisco's Daily Dish: "I've known him for years and he's a friend and I admire his work ... and, of course, you know how the biz goes - as soon as I worked with him... all of a sudden, we're dating! No! We're not dating.

"I'm sorry guys, you've gotta find a new girl to pick fun at."

Patricia Clarkson was conspicuously absent from the opening night for "Three Days of Rain" - because she was disinvited, Broadway sources say.

Clarkson originated the role in the Richard Greenberg drama now played by Julia Roberts. Unlike Roberts, Clarkson won rave reviews. She had planned to attend the opening last week until she got a call from director Joe Mantello, asking her to stay away. "They were worried there would be unflattering comparisons," said a source. Greenberg was said to be upset when he learned about Clarkson's ouster.

--Am I the only one not surprised Roberts didn't get good reviews? She's a movie actress--NOT a stage actress. Big difference! Very, very few can be both. Clarkson is one of them.

MTV Movie Awards

Over the past 12 months, audiences fell head-over-heels for some movie characters who couldn't get enough lovin', and others who have more than they can handle. Appropriately, then, the 2006 nominees for the MTV Movie Awards honor wedding studs, virginal duds, and a host of kissing, brawling and spell-casting buds.

Bawdy blockbusters "Wedding Crashers" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" lead the pack with five nominations each, followed closely by crowd pleasers "Batman Begins," "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," "Hustle & Flow," "Sin City" and "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" with three each. Keeping with the theme of spreading the love, the defiantly diverse slate also offers fans the (probably) once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to root for Paris Hilton, "Memoirs of a Geisha," the creepy dude from "Saw" and a pair of cowboy soulmates, all in the same evening.

Wedding Bells

Entourage actor Kevin Dillon married his girlfriend, model-actress Jane Stuart in Las Vegas on Saturday.

"The couple, who had been engaged for over a year, had been planning a formal wedding date, but Mr. Dillon’s schedule with Poseidon and Entourage had made it difficult," Dillon's spokesperson, Tiffany Kuzon, said in a statement. "Entourage castmates Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Connolly were present at the ceremony."

Kuzon also said that the couple are expecting their first child this summer. Dillon, 40, and Stuart, 28, met through a mutual friend, began dating in 2004 and got engaged the following year. "I had to fight a little bit because she wasn't all that interested in me when I asked her out." "But she saw things my way eventually."

--For all of you out there not watching Entourage, you really should. Plop down on the couch an hour before you'd normally sit down to watch Sopranos., and you'll get two episodes of Entourage.

Bow Wow Says...

Teen rapper Bow Wow has hit back at Percy 'Master P' Miller for trying to gain his son Lil' Romeo publicity by creating a feud with the Like You hitmaker.

Hip-hop veteran Miller last week told the 19-year-old to stop dissing established stars, or he will face the consequences. He then alleged Bow Wow hid behind his bodyguard when he came face-to-face with chart rival Lil' Romeo at the Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards show on 1 April.

But Bow Wow, 19, tells, "I can't understand all this, but I guess that's how it is when you ain't getting no attention." "You can hear me on the radio all day, every day. (Lil' Romeo) can't sell no records, and your daddy is on Dancing With The Stars."

A rep for the Simpsons said, "Ashlee thinks Hilary has perfectly lovely arms." The Duffs' rep, Cece Yorke, said, "They said they had a really fun night."

Getting Ugly

Charlie Sheen on Saturday called recent accusations made by his estranged wife, Denise Richards, "vile" and "baseless."

"Obviously, what has taken place is vile, is unconscionable, is without merit, is a transparent and immature smear campaign," Sheen said. "She's claiming certain things. It's baseless."

On Friday Richards, 35, filed paperwork in Los Angeles Superior Court that claimed Sheen had threatened to kill her. In the 17-page filing Richards also detailed Sheen’s alleged abuse of prescription medication, violent mood swings, compulsive gambling and use of pornography. According to Richards, on Dec. 27, 2005, Sheen hit her on the wrist and shoved her in the stomach after she confronted him about pornography Web sites featuring "very young girls" that he'd been visiting. She also said that several days later Sheen pushed her over while she was holding their daughter Lola and "said to me that he was going to have me killed."

A judge on Friday ordered Sheen, 40, to keep at least 300 feet away from Richards and their two young daughters after the abuse allegations were made. Another hearing is scheduled for May 12.

In a statement issued by Richards's rep on Friday, the actress said, "I am disappointed that the situation has deteriorated to the point that it has become necessary to seek the assistance of the court. However, my primary concern is and always has been the welfare of the children and this action today was taken to ensure their safety as well as mine."

But Sheen countered the assertion that the filing is about their children. "This has nothing to do with the best interests of the children, protecting them from this twisted ogre of a father," Sheen said at the launch of his Sheen Kidz children’s clothing line. "This is about hurting, this is about punishing.”

In his own short filing on Friday Sheen denied Richards’s claims, but said Sunday: "I'm not going to lower myself to become a mudslinger and enter that cesspool of accusation, because that’s not who I am." Still, Sheen said he planned to fight the allegations. "I've also got to have a voice in this, a strong voice in this, and a voice that my children one day will realize was absolutely and entirely in their best interest."

Federjerk At It Again?

Britney Spears has sparked further reports her marriage to Kevin Federline is in trouble, after she failed to attend his album listening party on Friday.

The couple and their seven-month-old son Sean Preston arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada, last week, ahead of aspiring rapper Federline's gig at the Pure nightclub at the Caesar's Palace. Local newspaper the Las Vegas Review Journal reports the couple were spotted arguing in Caesar's Nero restaurant ahead of Federline's bash and Spears retired to their hotel suite in tears.

Federline went on to perform two songs, "America's Most Hated" and "Rockstar" from his debut album Playing With Fire, after an introduction by Paris Hilton's mother Kathy. Federline entertained a few hundred fans, as well as celebrity friends, former Fresh Prince Of Bel Air actress Tatyana Ali and Kathy's husband Rick - but his superstar wife was nowhere to be seen.

Friends Urge Holmes To See The Light

Parishioners at Katie Holmes' old church in her native Toledo, Ohio are begging the actress to baptise her newborn baby in a proper Catholic church.

The star has become a devout Scientologist since meeting and falling in love with Tom Cruise and former family friends fear she'll turn her back on her religious roots and opt to bring up her child under the doctrines of her new faith. But parishioners at Christ The King in Toledo are urging Holmes to think of her parents, see sense and return to her hometown to baptize baby Suri.

Kathleen Jensen, a long time friend of the Holmes family, says, "I can't imagine what her parents are going through right now. She really needs to get that baby baptized in the Catholic church." And Becky Gillsdorf, who attended an all-girls school with Holmes, tells National Enquirer, "She's (Holmes) lost everything. Cruise is a couch-jumping lunatic, and she is under his spell."

Ironically, like Holmes, Cruise was brought up a Catholic and once considered becoming a Catholic priest before he discovered Scientology.

Fertility Yoga?

Actress Nicollette Sheridan has reportedly been taking yoga classes to enhance her fertility at a studio owned by her "Desperate Housewives" co-star Brenda Strong.

Strong, who provides the voice for the show's "dead" narrator Mary Alice Young, owns the Yoga Villa in North Hollywood, Calif., and holds special classes called Yoga 4 Fertility.

Sheridan, who is engaged to singer Michael Bolton, has reportedly become a regular at the popular yoga sessions. A source tells Star magazine, "When Nicollette came out of the class, she was absolutely glowing. "She was gushing to a friend that she hopes the classes work."

The 42-year-old actress doesn't have children, while Bolton has three grown daughters from his previous marriage.

Grammer A Politico?

Kelsey Grammer for president! The "Frasier" star says he is considering a run for public office, and is convinced that his sordid past - including a raging coke habit, a penchant for strippers and a battle with alcoholism - could give him an edge over his opponents.

"It's a notion I have about the future - to run for office, to do the world some good," Grammer tells Maxim. "Well, the idea that we can do the world some good is a little nuts; the world tends to take care of itself. But as I get older, in maybe 15 years or so, there may be a run for office . . . The opposition would hope it [my past] would harm me, but my frankness and openness about it would probably benefit me."

Roth Gets The Boot

Rocker-turned-radio host David Lee Roth, who accepted the no-win task of replacing ratings king Howard Stern in January, was bounced from the airwaves Friday after barely three months on the air in New York, Philadelphia, Boston and four other markets.

"I was booted, tossed, and it's going to cost somebody," Roth said on his last show, intimating that his lawyers would go after CBS Radio for the full compensation due from his reported $4 million contract. The timing of the move was interesting: It arrived just days before the Roth show's first Arbitron numbers.

CBS Radio spokeswoman Shavonne Harding said the company would have an announcement soon on its plans. She declined any other comment, and would not say who will replace the former Van Halen frontman on Monday's morning drive time shift.

Pointy Nose?

Language experts are amazed Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have named their baby daughter Suri- because there is no record of the name meaning "Princess" in Hebrew.

According to Hebrew linguists, Suri has only two meanings - one is a person from Syria and the other "go away" when addressed to a female. Hebrew expert Jonathan Went says, "I think it's fair to say they have made a mistake here. There are variations of the way the Hebrew name for princess is spelt but I have never seen it this way." Suri can also be translated into a Hindi boy's name, and it also means "pointy nose" in some Indian dialects and "pickpocket" in Japanese.

In other alien fetus news...

Tom Cruise's fiancee Katie Holmes had an epidural to ease her pain when she gave birth to the couple's daughter Suri on Tuesday.

It is not yet known whether the former Dawson's Creek actress adhered to Scientology protocol by remaining silent during labor, but she did accept pain relief, according to American magazine People. A source told the publication that Holmes' mother Kathy broke down in tears of joy when she heard the news of her granddaughter's safe delivery.


Nicole Kidman released a statement with regard to Suri's birth: "I hope both mother and baby are doing well." No mention of Tom...

Leo's New Squeeze

Leonardo DiCaprio's new girlfriend, Victoria's Secret stunner Bar Refaeli, has caused an outcry in her native Israel over accusations of draft-dodging.

Refaeli, 20, avoided having to enlist with the Israeli army by secretly getting married a week before she was due to report for duty in 2004, reports the London Evening Standard. All Israeli women ages 18-20 must serve in the military unless they're ultra-religious, physically disabled or married. A family "friend" tells the paper, "Everyone knows why she got married. It doesn't take a genius to work it out."

Before replacing Gisele Bundchen as DiCaprio's arm candy, Refaeli dated a string of millionaires and actors, including "Baywatch" stud David Charvet.

"So I had to have the awkward talk with them like, 'I think it's about time you guys moved back to Florida,' which is where I grew up.

"Not only did they lose me, they lost my younger brother who was going to live with me as well, and stay in the house. "They became homeless and empty-nesters at the same time."

Mick To Act?

Mick Jagger is in negotiations to appear in an untitled ABC comedy pilot about a group of blue-collar guys in New York who decide to rob a celebrity. The Rolling Stones frontman would play the target.

Originally, the project was shopped around with the cheeky title "I Want to Rob Jeff Goldblum," but Goldblum, who has his own pilot at NBC, was never attached. After the script was picked up to pilot in December, the show's creators, Rob Burnett and Jon Beckerman, zeroed in on Jagger as the celebrity at the center of the show.

Jagger would appear in only a few scenes, and his name is not expected to be in the title of the project, sources said. But he is crucial to the plot line as the target of the planned robbery and is mentioned numerous times in the scenes that already have been filmed. DVDs with the taped pilot sans Jagger's scenes already have started floating around. If the pilot is picked up to series, Jagger would continue to appear as the plot to rob him develops.

With the deal for the Burnett/Beckerman project, Jagger is poised to join another British rock star, Elton John, in the ABC comedy fold this season. John executive produces the pilot "Him and Us."

Snoop, the Author?

Hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg is crossing over to the literary world.

His first novel, coming this October, is titled Love Don’t Live Here No More. It's the story of a young man living the hard life in Southern California while struggling to make it in the world of hip-hop.

“Snoop, by nature of what he does, is a storyteller,” says Kathleen Schmidt, vice president and director of publicity for Atria Books, a division of Viacom's Simon & Schuster. This is the first novel in a street-lit series headed by Snoop for Atria. “Books speak more to a female audience than does his music,” Schmidt says, “so these novels give him an opportunity to show, particularly his female fans, another side.”

Off The Hook

Matthew Mcconaughey is sighing with relief after a Los Angeles judge dismissed claims by an obsessed fan that he had raped, drugged and tried to kill her.

Ashley Moye, 39, filed the bizarre lawsuit last summer alleging the Sahara star had stalked her and attempted to murder her, but a judge has thrown out the case. In legal papers, Moye claimed she and McConaughey were lovers when they were teenagers but they fell out when she dumped him for another guy.

She alleged they met years later while they were both studying Scientology in Hollywood, where he raped her after she refused to marry him. Moye also claimed the actor once attempted to knock her out with drugged milk and filmed the couple having sex - and then handed the tape to his pals.

Also on the chain with her 3.5 carat bauble are two crosses – one that her parents gave to her, and another that is identical to a cross worn by both her sister, Ashlee and mother, Tina.

The jewelry pieces represent "a combination of things that are important to her," says the source.

I Wouldn't Pick That Fight

Ludacris is dissing Oprah Winfrey.

The rapper-turned-actor was miffed when he went on her show to promote "Crash" and got severely edited because Winfrey has a rule of not promoting rap or rappers. "She edited out a lot of my comments while keeping her own in," Ludacris told GQ.

"Of course, it's her show, but we were doing a show on racial discrimination, and she gave me a hard time as a rapper when I came on there as an actor. I don't see why people like Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, who I am huge fans of, it's OK for them to go on 'Oprah.' They speak the same language as I do, but they do it through comedy, so I guess that's acceptable."

Pink's Help Button

Pink has had a 'Help' button tattooed on her arm.

The singer, who has around 20 different pieces of body art, says she presses the unusual symbol for comfort when she has to face a problem in her life. She told Britain's TV Hits magazine: "I got a 'Help' button tattooed on my arm so I can press it when things aren't going so well. It hasn't worked yet though, I gotta get it activated!"

Pink recently confessed she gets turned on by tattoos. The rocker claims she finds body art very erotic, and loves the fact her husband Carey Hart has decorated his body with etchings. She revealed: "I think they are very incredibly sexy. My husband is covered with them.

Jamie-Lynn's New Man

Jamie-Lynn Sigler has a new man: Ashley Olsen's ex, Scott Sartino.

On March 9, in front of startled passersby in the lobby of NYC’s Hotel Gansevoort, the actress and Scott - Ashley Olsen’s onetime beau - had a lovers’ quarrel, during which Jamie-Lynn, 24, threw up her arms at Scott, 30, an onlooker tells Life & Style.

But by the next night, the spat seemed to be history. Jamie-Lynn and a group of her gal pals visited Scott in the VIP area of his new Manhattan club, G-Spa - and this time their public displays were purely affectionate.

“Jamie-Lynn held his hand all night,” says an eyewitness. “She whispered things in his ear that made him smile and kiss her. They never left each other’s side.”

Brit May Sue

Britney Spears’ baby boy recently fell and bonked his head, but the singer reportedly thinks a high chair might be to blame. A nanny was taking the seven-month-old tot from his high chair earlier this month when “something snapped,” according to a report in People magazine.

Baby Sean Preston was taken to the hospital, where he was deemed okay, but now Spears is looking into suing the maker of the chair, according to In Touch Weekly. “The chair’s back broke,” a “family insider” explained to the mag. “She’s going to see if there was a fault in the chair.”

Meanwhile, Shar Jackson — the mother of two children by Spears’ hubby, Kevin Federline — reportedly doesn’t have great faith in Spears’ mothering abilities.

“Shar told Kevin that Britney can’t be alone with their kids,” a source told the mag. “Shar said that if Kevin wants to see their kids, he and Britney must do it at a hotel. “She doesn’t know what goes on at their house and there are too many strangers hanging around.”

Say What?

Kanye West has money, an expensive wardrobe, more talent than the law should allow, a cute girlfriend and some Grammys. He just needs one more thing: time.

'Ye said he definitely has something up his sleeve for a Michael Jackson collaboration if he can sync up schedules with M.J. And last year, he didn't make it onto his friend Twista's album because of time conflicts.

"I didn't have enough time to make it the way I make it," West said from Hawaii about his latest accomplishment, "Impossible." The track features West, Twista and the newest signee to Kanye's Good Music imprint, Keyshia Cole. "If you notice, I don't do as many beats for people because I don't have enough time to make it how I make it," he said. "My beats is a whole new art form now. It's not just a 15-minute joint. It's not that fast-food sh--. You can tell 'Impossible' took hours."

Fifty hours, to be exact. While "Impossible" was left on the cutting-room floor for Twista's album, West found it to be the perfect offering to be used in "Mission: Impossible III" when Tom Cruise called and asked for a contribution. West also produced a reworking of the famous "Mission: Impossible" theme. "It's hard," he said of the theme. "Like some DMX-sounding sh--. I chopped up the 'bomp, bomp, bomp-bomp,' but I couldn't think of no verse for it, so it's just an instrumental."

Miller and Buscemi Get Death Threats

According to FemaleFirst, Sienna Miller has been on the receiving end of death threats from the very same Muslim fundamentalist groups that had her security people worried in the first place.

Islamic extremists are furious the actress is starring in 'Interview', a remake of director Theo van Gogh's 2003 thriller. The Dutch director was murdered in 2004 after his controversial film 'Submission' sparked outrage among Islamic fundamentalists.

Sienna, who is currently shooting the film in New York, is being targeted by similar political groups. She has been sent letters warning her "she will be sorry" unless she pulls out of filming. A crew member told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Sienna refuses to give in to these threats. The film hasn't got anything to do with Islam. But because it's being made as a tribute to Theo, the Islamic fundamentalists have hit the roof."

Her co-star, 'Reservoir Dogs' star Steve Buscemi has received similar death threats.

Donald Trump Park

Donald Trump is donating 436 acres in New York City's northern suburbs for a new state park that will be named for — you guessed it — Donald Trump.

The new Donald J. Trump State Park will comprise two separate areas along the Taconic State Parkway, near the Franklin D. Roosevelt and Fahnestock state parks. Trump and Gov. George Pataki announced the donation Wednesday from the sunny, wind-swept top of Indian Hill, which crowns the larger parcel — 282 acres of woods, meadow and wetland straddling Westchester and Putnam counties about 45 miles north of Manhattan.

"This is so beautiful," Trump said to his wife, Melania, when he arrived for the news conference. "Am I allowed to change my mind?"

When Trump, a billionaire developer and star of TV's "The Apprentice," was asked if he could put a price on the land, he said, "People have told me about $100 million." The 59-year-old real estate magnate bought the properties in the 1990s for $2 million and had considered projects including golf courses and a housing development.

Nick Dishes On The Divvy

Nick Lachey is now offering a more thorough peek inside his former marriage to Jessica Simpson than viewers were allowed to see on their Newlyweds reality series.

"Jessica and I began playing these parts even when we were by ourselves," he says of their roles. "It became a really blurred line. There was a question about what truly was our reality."

Lachey, 32, makes the comments to Rolling Stone in a new interview, excerpts of which were released to USA Today. Among Lachey's more startling revelations: "I'll tell you how I knew my marriage was over: I was told."

As for lingering doubts about his three-year-marriage, Lachey admits: "I don't know if there were other men. But if she did cheat, it was the result of something bigger, not the reason we didn't work. ... Sometimes I think it would be easier if I had just walked in the house and found her in bed with a guy. That would be clear-cut. End of story. I wouldn't have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery."

Lachey also lifts the veil on his feelings about ex-father-in-law (and Jessica's manager) Joe Simpson. "I don't pretend to understand Joe," he says. "I don't know if he ever liked me. To this day I couldn't say. It was painful. Do I think Joe drove a rift between us? No. Was he an influence in our marriage? Absolutely."

Crack Is Whack

Troubled diva Whitney Houston has reportedly checked in to a rehab clinic in Arizona in a desperate bid to kick her alleged drug addiction.

The singer is seeking help at the Sierra Tucson clinic in Tucson, Arizona, according to news show Extra. The news comes just weeks after Houston's sister-in-law, Tina Brown, went public with her fears for the singer. Brown, the sister of Houston's husband Bobby Brown, claimed the soul star was constantly high in an interview with tabloid the National Enquirer.

She said, "The truth needs to come out. Whitney won't stay off the drugs. It's every single day. It's so ugly. Everyone is so scared she's going to overdose." Brown also took pictures of her sister-in-law's sordid "crack den," which the Enquirer posted on the front page.

Why Must They Ruin These Musicals?

Tom Hanks will produce a film version of Mamma Mia!

The filmmakers are eyeing release by late 2007. The show's book writer, Catherine Johnson, is penning the screenplay, which will stick closely to the crowd-pleasing musical's plot. Raised on a Greek island by a formerly rebellious mom who never disclosed the identity of her father, a bride-to-be locates three men who might be her father and invites them to her wedding.

The resulting conflict triggers 22 ABBA hits like "Dancing Queen," "Take a Chance on Me" and "The Winner Takes It All."

Tribute To Jessica Lange

Alan Cumming takes a hands-on approach when it comes to sex scenes. At the Film Society of Lincoln Center's tribute to Jessica Lange Monday night, the flamboyant actor recalled how he lightened the mood during a love scene with Lange for "Titus."

Cumming put his hand on Lange's breast and told her, "What a beautiful t- - you have!" Lange replied, "If you didn't have your hand on it, it would be halfway 'round my back." Both Mikhail Baryshnikov and Sam Shepard - with each of whom Jessica has children - had a chuckle over Cumming's crack at the dinner at the State Theater.

It's All In The Name

Pop group The Pussycat Dolls are set to become real-life dolls - toy firm Hasbro are creating plastic figurines of the sexy six-piece.

Likenesses of the hitmakers - Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Melody Thornton, Kimberly Wyatt, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta - will be available this Christmas. Hasbro says the $15 action figures are aimed at children aged six to nine, despite The Pussycat Dolls' risque image.

Sharon John, Hasbro's general manager for marketing, explains, "I don't think we're trying to push the envelope any further, but we're trying to add an aspect of realism. These are people that have real careers." "Most of the time, the toy item for Britney Spears, 'N Sync is post the success of the act, way down the line. It's really the last thing they think of." "We looked at it as, let's not wait for The Pussycat Dolls to become big hits and we take the tail end of the value chain."

The Alien Fetus Has Landed

The Tomkitten has arrived. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the high-profile pair dubbed TomKat by the media, had a baby girl Tuesday, said Cruise spokesman Arnold Robinson. The baby, named Suri, weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces and measured 20 inches long, he said.

"Both mother and daughter are doing well," Robinson said in a prepared statement. The name Suri has its origins in Hebrew, meaning "princess," or in Persian, meaning "red rose," the statement said.

The baby was born in Los Angeles but the exact location was not disclosed. It's the first child for Holmes, 27. Cruise, 43, has an adopted daughter and son from his marriage to Nicole Kidman. Details surrounding the birth, which was planned under the tenets of the Church of Scientology as a silent procedure, weren't disclosed.

Dad-to-be Tom Cruise has vowed to eat the placenta of his newborn baby and plans to dine on the umbilical cord too.

The actor's bizarre plans are sure to shock his legions of fans but the Hollywood heavyweight insists he plans to cook the unusual meal after fiancée Katie Holmes gives birth. The 43 year-old star told GQ magazine: "I'm going to eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I'm going to eat the cord and the placenta right there."

Cruise, a devoted Scientologist, made the decision after reading the afterbirth contains important nutrients and vitamins.

The actor is not the only star to indulge in strange behavior with his baby's placenta practice. Rod Stewart and fiancée Penny Lancaster celebrated the birth of their son Alastair by covering his placenta in tea tree oil and burying it in their garden.

Milking Her One Encounter

Angelina Jolie is an "unbelievable lesbian lover," says her former flame, Jenny Shimizu.

The one-time Calvin Klein model - who's been dining out on her 1996 dalliance with Jolie for years - rehashes it again in a new interview with Britain's News of the World. "I was her first," Shimizu says of the sapphic sex-up. "And although she's having a baby with Brad [Pitt], I doubt I'll be the last. She loves women too much. It's like a drug and she was hooked."

There's more: "She has a body which just makes you gasp and shudder with lust - so slender but with the most incred ible, perfect curvy boobs," says shameless Shimizu. "And her amazing skin is so soft to touch. But it's her mouth that made me beg for more - kissing me slowly and passionately with those full lips over every inch of my body." For the uninitiated, Shimizu met Jolie on the set of the 1996 flick, "Foxfire," when Jolie, then 19, was married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller.

Shimizu and Jolie haven't seen each other in two years, but Shimizu says they still talk occasionally: "We had a special bond, which I believe will never die. We never fell out, we just drifted apart."

Eva Wants You To Know She's Smart

Eva Longoria is a relationship kind of woman – and says she expects to stay with her beau, San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker "forever."

"I'd much rather be in a relationship," the Desperate Housewives star says. "There's no way in the world I would rather be single. Tony is too. I've said the only reason Tony and I are going to stay together forever is because we're too lazy to look for someone else."

--How romantic.

In other Eva news...

Eva Longoria is annoyed. The Latina beauty on hit television show “Desperate Housewives” is bugged by all the newspaper, magazine and Web gossip about her sex life when there are more important issues to think about.

She is as comfortable talking about U.S. immigration policy and the plight of migrant farm workers as she is having her bikini-clad body on a mega-sized magazine cover spread out in the Nevada desert so that it can be seen from outer space.

Longoria, 31, is a beauty, but her brain is big, too and she wants folks to know it. So when the media focuses on her sex life with boyfriend Tony Parker, as happened last month, Longoria gets irritated.

Longoria holds a degree in kinesiology from Texas A&M University — Kingsville. She is a spokeswoman for Padres Contra el Cancer, which is dedicated to helping Latino kids with the disease, and works with the United Farm Workers labor union.

She said it was “unfortunate” that in the United States -- a nation of immigrants -- some lawmakers want to deport illegal aliens and fence off the Mexico/U.S. border. “Mexicans contribute an enormous amount to our society, economically and socially,” she said. “I don’t think this administration can afford to have things end badly.”

Flockhart and Griffiths Do Pilot

Calista Flockhart and co-star Rachel Griffiths will each pocket $200,000 for their roles in 'Brothers and Sisters,' a new pilot for ABC.

The two stars will also make $100,000 for each episode, with a guarantee of six. This means that even if the network does not pick up the series, they will each get $800,000. It's no coincidence that they got the same deal; both women are repped by the same lawyer.

Flockhart, who has been offered numerous pilots since 'Ally McBeal' went off the air, was apparently drawn to the script because of its writer, Jon Robin Baitz. She also likes her character: a right-wing talk show host who is forced to run a family business with her sister and her brothers after the death of their father.

Other cast members include Balthazar Getty, Ron Rifkin and Jonathan LaPaglia -- all of whom didn't get paid nearly as much as Flockhart and Griffiths.

Michael's $ Is Blowin' In The Wind

Michael Jackson has reached an agreement with Sony to help ease his massive financial debts - and he has The Beatles to thank.

The fallen star had been due to pay back $200 million in loans in December. They were secured on the back of The Beatles back catalogue - jointly owned by Sony. Few details of the deal have been released, but Jackson adviser Grahame Nelson issued a short statement from Bahrain. Jackson has been living there since he was cleared of child abuse charges last June.

"Following negotiations with several leading financial institutions, Mr. Jackson has concluded refinancing with affiliates of Fortress Investment Group, the lender that currently holds secured debts that were previously held by Bank of America," the statement said.

The Wall Street Journal and New York Times have reported the deal means Jackson will sell half of his 50% share in the catalogue to Sony, leaving him with just 25% of it. The catalogue is thought to be worth $1 billion. As well as 200 Beatles songs, it includes songs such as Bob Dylan's 'Blowin' In The Wind'.

Grammy-winning singer-producer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against singer Anita Baker, claiming she owes him more than $250,000.

According to the lawsuit, filed Thursday in Superior Court, Baker broke two oral agreements with Edmonds, who co-wrote, produced and performed on the song "Like You Used to Do" on Baker's 2004 album "My Everything." The lawsuit claims Baker refused to pay Edmonds producer's royalties equaling at least $100,000 from an estimated more than 500,000 albums sold.

Edmonds, 47, also alleges that he and Baker had an agreement to play four concerts together, but that Baker canceled two shows and refused to pay $150,000 for those dates.

Unofficially Engaged (Again)

Socialite Nicole Richie is planning to save on-off boyfriend Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein a fortune when the couple get engaged for the second time -- she plans to use the diamond from her first ring.

The couple has already decided to give their engagement another try after breaking it off at Christmas, and friends claim Richie is simply planning to revamp her old engagement ring. According to an insider, the 24-year-old would have donned her old ring if she wasn't so superstitious about jinxing the romance with a ring she cast aside when they split.

American magazine In Touch claims Richie recently met with jewelry designer Nancy Davis, who designed her first ring, about creating a new design. A source says, "She wants a ring that doesn't hold any memories of the break-up." Meanwhile, Richie is already telling her pals that she and Goldstein are "unofficially engaged," according to Life & Style magazine, and they plan to marry later this year.

Sculpture of Kate Moss

As if the Britney sculpture wasn't enough, another artist has created a piece to resemble a famous person.

The artist who created the Trafalgar Square sculpture of Alison Lapper, an armless woman depicted naked and pregnant, has unveiled a new work influenced by the multi-limbed goddess Shiva but with the features of Kate Moss.

Marc Quinn, who has called his oeuvre The Sphinx, says he was inspired by the 32-year-old model because, "She is a contemporary version of the Sphinx. A mystery. There must be something about her that has clicked with the collective unconscious to make her so ubiquitous, so spirit of the age."

Although the advanced yoga pose involved was performed by somebody else, the features are Kate's. "I'd done some life casts of her in the past," explains Marc, "and we made more measurements and photos. From all that we sculpted Kate's body in the pose; this is her body and her proportions."

Casting News

Alicia Keys is adding another note to her acting resume. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has been cast in the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling book, "The Nanny Diaries," Keys' spokeswoman, Kelly Bush, said Thursday.

The film features Scarlett Johansson as a nanny for a wealthy Manhattan family. Paul Giamatti, Laura Linney and Chris Evans also star. Keys will play the nanny's best friend, Bush said.

The character is a far cry from the assassin she plays in the upcoming action flick "Smokin' Aces," which features Ben Affleck, Andy Garcia, Jeremy Piven and Ray Liotta.

No More Piv?

Jeremy Piven may not be "hugging it out" on "Entourage" for much longer.

Rumor has it that Piven's lovably odious agent character, Ari Gold, could be getting canned by Adrien Grenier's movie-star alter ego, Vincent Chase, in the upcoming season. HBO bought floor seats at last Tuesday's Laker-Warrior game at the Staples Center in L.A. from real-estate heir Aaron Casden. The primo seats will be featured in a scene in which Grenier, Jerry "Turtle" Ferrara, Kevin "Drama" Dillon and Kevin "E" Connolly are wooed by a rival agent, played by sexy Carla Gugino - who had a memorable nude scene in "Sin City" and who just signed a six-episode deal to appear on "Entourage."

Across the court, Piven, who is shown hobnobbing with mega-producer Joel Silver, goes bananas when he sees Grenier being wooed by Gugino. The episode debuts in June. An HBO rep told us, "We don't comment on plot lines."

Spacey Determined To Stay With Old Vic

Kevin Spacey is determined to complete his 10 year contract as artistic director at London theatre the Old Vic, despite criticism of his management.

The actor recently cut short the run of Arthur Miller's Resurrection Blues following poor reviews and announced the summer closure of the theatre. But he insists he "more determined than ever" to make the theatre he took over in 2003 a success.

He says, "This the middle of our second season, it's very early going, nothing has put me off from our goal and our plan. I don't think that 18 months in, that anyone needs to apologize for having done a program that's brought 425,000 people into the theatre. That's nearly more than two times the number of people that came into the Old Vic in the previous two seasons. We must be doing something right even though 11 or 12 people who write for newspapers don't particularly like what we've done."

Girl Power

Geri Halliwell is planning on reuniting the estrange members of the Spice Girls with the birth of the forthcoming child.

Ginger Spice is hoping that Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm will step up and be God mothers to her baby. All former Spice girls have received an invitation to take on the role of spiritual guide on hand crafted, silver edged cards from Smythson stationers.

A source told the Daily Star: “Geri wanted to fly back to England to pick out the cards herself as she had her heart set on using Smythson. “She wanted everything to be perfect and to give the girls plenty of notice as she knows they are really busy people. “It’s really important to her that even if they don’t accept the honour, they still remain involved in the birth of her first child.

“She really would like this to reunite them. Contrary to what a lot of people think, Geri looks back on her days in the band, especially before they were famous, as a really wonderful period on her life. “She loved the camaraderie of having all her girlfriends around her and would like to feel that positive female spirit once the child is born.”

Students Stage Kiss In

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia made an appearance at University of Connecticut's law school yesterday, where he told students his proudest moment as a judge was not being "chased off" a case involving his hunting buddy Dick Cheney.

Some students took the liberty of setting up a same-sex kissing booth outside the hall where Scalia was speaking, as protest against his comments on gays, minorities, and women: "'His visit opened a lot of conversation on this campus,' said third-year law student Colby Smith, who was wearing an 'I Kiss Boys' T-shirt. 'We want to make sure people understand what the concerns are with him, and why his views are particularly offensive.'

I Like Big Butts, And I Cannot Lie

Think you've got a booty to rival Beyonce's? Now you can find out — with scientific certainty. A team of British academics has developed a mathematical formula to determine just how perfect your posterior is.

"The perfect female derriere has firmness to the touch and a resilience that prevents undue wobble or bounce, yet looks soft with flawless skin," said Dr. David Holmes, a psychology lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, who devised the formula for measuring one's moons.

And the Rosetta Stone of bootyliciousness is: (S+C) x (B+F) / (T-V).

While it may look complicated, getting to the bottom of the formula is easy, Holmes insists. First, a woman assesses her assets on a scale from 1 to 20 (1 being worst and 20 best) in the following categories:

* S = overall shape (a ripe peach being just about right)

* C = circularity (rounder is better)
* B = bounciness (less wobble is preferred)

* F = firmness (too much push to that cushion loses points)

* T = skin texture (no cellulite, please)

Then calculate this:

* V = the ratio of one's hips to waist. Finally, do the math.

"Slender thighs and hip-to-waist ratio of 0.7 will frame the perfect bum, well, perfectly," Holmes said. "Kylie [Minogue] would score amazingly well on sphericality and symmetry. Her bottom is perfect in those categories, more so than the likes of . . . Jennifer Lopez, who has a more curvy posterior," he said.

--Wonder if Sir Mix A Lot would agree...

US Weekly is reporting details on the cat-fight between Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Simspon at Dime on April 6. It’s got something to do with Brett Ratner and here’s a sneak peak:

Now sources tell Us that the reason Lindsay Lohan became enraged is because she sent over a round of drinks to Jessica Simpson and director Brett Ratner (After the Sunset, Rush Hour) — who were sitting at a nearby table – and neither bothered to thank her.

Says a source, “Lindsay said, ‘What’s the matter? When your sister is around, you can talk s–t about me, but now that Ashlee’s not here, what are you going to do? C’mon! I’m 19 and you’re 25. Say something, you coward!’ ”

Still, he can't help fantasize about bachelorhood. "If I were single?" Holloway muses. "Damn, I'd have one girl doing my laundry, one shaving me, one bringing me a cocktail and another one coming out of my tent all hungover."

Fears over the health of Paris Hilton were sparked yesterday after the socialite fainted at Las Vegas airport. The 25 year old fainted after a weekend of partying/working at various night clubs and casinos.

An insider told the Daily Star: “Paris seemed tired after she had wrapped up her work gigs in Vegas. “And when it came time to fly back to Los Angeles she said she felt faint and tired. “She was at the airport when she suddenly had to sit down feeling dizzy and she simply lapsed for a few seconds. Some of her friends ran and got her some water which she sipped and soon felt better.

“She is taking on too much work that her friends are concerned. But there’s no stopping Paris when she wants something.”

It would appear that Wilmer Valderrama has a vivid imagination. If you recall, Wilmer Valderrama dished some really dicey scoop to the Howard Stern, on his Sirius radio program, with the 'That 70's Show' star chatting openly about sex and his Hollywood sexual encounters.

Valderrama dished on quite a few young ladies in Hollywood, including one in particular, Jennifer Love Hewitt, claiming she rated an "eight" out of ten when it came to her bedroom prowess. Valderrama also alluded to even having anal sex with his conquests in his interview with Stern. Saying: "Yes, Yes" when probed by Howard.

However, in a cold slap delivered with a smile on an interview with CBS area recently, Jennifer Love Hewitt laughed openly about claims that she and Valderrama were lovers, and insisted the pair were only friends some time back. She also said they NEVER dated.

SPF Gets Dropped On His Head

Child welfare officials and a sheriff's deputy visited Britney Spears' home because her infant son was accidentally dropped from a high chair, People Magazine and the Los Angeles Times reported.

Six-month-old Sean Preston fell April 1 as his nanny was lifting him from the high chair and something in the chair snapped, People said Wednesday on its Web site. The infant slipped from her arms and fell, bruising his head on the floor, the magazine said.

Though a doctor examined the baby at the house, Spears and husband Kevin Federline took the baby to the emergency room to have him examined six days later, the report said. Spears' attorney, Martin Singer, said in a statement that the hospital made a report to the Department of Children and Family Services as required by state law.

"DCFS immediately responded and determined there was no problem and no reason to open a formal investigation. They determined that the parents weren't involved in the injury and nothing was improper within the home," he said. The Los Angeles DCFS and the Lost Hills sheriff's station declined to give details of Saturday's visit, and would not say if there was an ongoing investigation. DCFS public-affairs director Louise Grasmehr didn't return a phone message left Tuesday at her Los Angeles office. The department routinely refuses to discuss cases, citing confidentiality laws. "It's a very standard, routine patrol request," Lt. Debra Glaskides said Tuesday. "We just roll out with them. We stood by, we took no action, no report or anything."

In February, DCFS visited Spears' home after publication of photographs showing the 24-year-old singer driving with then 4-month-old Sean Preston in her lap, rather than in a car seat as required by law.

Madonna's Marriage Save

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have retreated to Los Angeles where they are patching things up after a bumpy period in their marriage, her father-in-law says in a magazine interview released Tuesday.

"L.A. seems to have helped them. It's easier out there because there is less pressure. They seem to have left the bumps they were having over here behind them," John Ritchie was quoted as saying in an interview with Closer magazine. "You can never know that things will work, but they do seem to be fitting into each other more," he was quoted as saying. "They have put everything behind them and have gone to L.A. to enjoy themselves. They're able to go home at night and be together. They both want to see the children. They are going to have a good time out there and be a family."

Reports of a rift in the marriage circulated recently, especially after Madonna didn't include her film director husband in her thank yous after winning a Brit Award in February. The couple have a son, Rocco, 5, and the singer also has a daughter, Lourdes, 9. "It's the children that will keep them together. The children are everything to them," John Ritchie told the magazine.

Oprah Says...

Oprah Winfrey is a rich woman – and she's got no problem with that.

Speaking in Baltimore on Monday at a fundraiser for Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School, Winfrey told the audience, "I have lots of things, like all these Manolo Blahniks. I have all that and I think it's great. I'm not one of those people like, 'Well, we must renounce ourselves.' No, I have a closet full of shoes and it's a good thing."

Winfrey, 52, who is reportedly worth more than $1 billion, said she doesn't feel guilty about her wealth. "I was coming back from Africa on one of my trips," she said. "I had taken one of my wealthy friends with me. She said, 'Don't you just feel guilty? Don't you just feel terrible?' I said, 'No, I don't. I do not know how me being destitute is going to help them.' Then I said when we got home, 'I'm going home to sleep on my Pratesi sheets right now and I'll feel good about it.' "

The talk-show host also discussed an academy for girls that she's building in South Africa. "I want to offer opportunities to girls who have nothing but the will to learn," she said. "I'm going to be opening my school on January 2, and it will be one of the great days of my life to see 450 girls, most of them orphans who would not have had the opportunity for education in their lives, come to school."

Winfrey was the featured speaker at the event, which helped raise more than $1.4 million for scholarships to Baltimore's largest Jewish school.

Britney Spears wants to focus on her acting career.

The pop star- who put her music career on hold after marrying Kevin Federline and having baby son Sean Preston - is said to be desperate to become a TV star. The 24-year-old - who received poor reviews for her performance in 2002 movie 'Crossroads' - caught the acting bug after guest-starring in sitcom 'Will and Grace' earlier this year.

A source told America's In Touch Weekly magazine show bosses were "pleasantly surprised" by the singer's acting talents. The insider also claims the program's co-creator, Max Mutchnick, is now planning to offer Britney a role in one of his other shows.

Lauer's New Contract

Where in the world is Matt Lauer? Behind his desk at NBC’s “Today” show for at least the next five years.

While the television world was paying attention to Meredith Vieira’s selection as Katie Couric’s successor on the “Today” show last week, Lauer quietly agreed to a contract extension to keep him on the show until 2011.

NBC confirmed the deal Tuesday, after Lauer revealed it during an interview with The New York Times. The network released no details. Lauer, 48, would not comment on the extension of a contract that was due to expire in 2008, a spokeswoman said. His salary is expected to be in a similar $13 million to $15 million range a year that Couric’s was.

Elton's Closet

Some 10,000 items of Elton John's wardrobe – coats, sweaters, suits and other garments, including those of his partner, David Furnish – went on sale in New York on Tuesday to raise money for the singer's Elton John AIDS Foundation.

To accommodate the buyers – and gawkers – a temporary shop, Elton's Closet, has been set up in the concourse of Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan, reports the Associated Press. The sale runs through Saturday. "The clothes have hardly been worn. Some of them haven't been worn," John, 59, said at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the shop. Among the items: a black Versace suit decorated with John's song titles (including his signature "Rocket Man") woven into the fabric and a polka-dot Richard James suit John wore when he performed with Eminem at the 2001 Grammys.

While the performance pieces are expected to sell for thousands of dollars, there are also plenty of bargain items, including a $150 Gucci shirt and $30 Nike and Adidas sneakers. Similar sales also have been held in London and Atlanta, where John and Furnish have a home.

Babs Says "No"

She's one of, if not THE, biggest icon in the gay community, but the great Barbra Streisand is showing no love for the groundbreaking comedy Will & Grace. Producers of the show - an Emmy winner in its first year and a pioneer in bringing the gay community into primetime - approached the diva about guest starring on the last episode of the series, but the Oscar-winning actress-singer has, alas, refused to appear on the show, according to web site

After nine years and countless kudos, the hit NBC show will be ending its run in May. Producer Max Mutchnick had hoped to land Streisand to play the sister of sharp-tongued, sauced-up Karen Walker, played by Emmy winner Megan Mullally. According to the report, Mutchnick said, "We made one last attempt to get Barbra Streisand to come on the show as Karen's sister, but there was no love there for us."

With Streisand out of the running, the producers reportedly turned to Oscar winner Meryl Streep to fill the role, but she also declined the offer. The role of Karen's sister eventually went to Golden Globe winner Bernadette Peters, and Mullally couldn't be more delighted with the choice. She's quoted as saying, "Bernadette is amazing."

Shame On You, Cacee

While her boss was oceans away in Australia, Jessica Simpson's assistant, Cacee Cobb was getting up close and very personal with Nick Lachey in Las Vegas.

The twosome, subject of much romance rumors of late, partied and played together Saturday night at Pure, the nightclub at Caesar's Palace.

Nick and Cacee only had eyes for each other, as they spent all night ignoring their entourage and just focusing their attention - and flirting - with each other, several spywitnesses say.

The couple was holed up in the VIP area, hugging and talking, front and center in the VIP section. "They seemed into each other and didn't care who saw them," one clubgoer tells us.

Probably A Bad Idea

Nicollette Sheridan and Michael Bolton have recorded a duet of The Second Time Around for Bolton's new CD, Bolton Swings Sinatra, in stores May 23.

"The second time around is a big deal for us," Bolton says from South Korea, where he has been performing some of the Frank Sinatra standards on his CD from Concord Records and Bolton's Passion Music label. In the '90s, Bolton, 52, and Sheridan, 42, had a six-year relationship. They renewed their romance last year and became engaged in March, but they have not set a wedding date.

Bolton says Sheridan helped him select the CD's song list as they were driving down the California coast. They cut the duet at the famed Capitol Records building in Hollywood, which Sheridan found intimidating. "As you walk down the hall, you see photos of Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby and Judy Garland, and she was like, 'Oh great.' " But Bolton says Sheridan has a strong pitch.

Jessica Gets Sued

Actress/singer Jessica Simpson is being sued for $100 million by a clothing company, after she allegedly failed to promote their products as agreed.

The Tarrant Apparel Group filed suit against the star at New York State Supreme Court last week.

Simpson reportedly signed a multi-million dollar three-year deal in 2004 to launch their range of bargain fashions but the company claims she didn't sport enough of their styles at "public events, shows and appearances". Simpson has yet to respond to the lawsuit.

Lohan Gets Dumped By LV

Lindsay Lohan has been snubbed by Louis Vuitton bosses who have dropped plans to make her the new face of the label.

Instead, the exclusive contract has been handed to Naomi Campbell who will now replace Leonardo DiCaprio's ex Gisele Bundchen instead of the 'Mean Girls' actress. The change was reportedly ordered by the label's designer Marc Jacobs, who is rumored to be good friends with Lohan.

A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Marc is great friends with Lindsay and she loves his clothes so it was no surprise rumors were flying that he was pushing his French bosses to get her to star in their campaign. "But they thought Lindsay was too American for their global brand."

Campbell is said to be thrilled to be have been awarded the contract.

Brit's Binge Eating

Anyone who follows Britney Spears knows that she hasn’t been following her old diet and exercise routines. Once a size 2, the pop star’s clothing size has now probably reached double digits, making her look more like the mainstream American woman than the woman every other woman aspires to be. But the mainstream American woman doesn’t sell records these days and so, according to Australian tabloid, NW, Britney’s record label has told her “to lose weight and clean up her image or her career will be over.”

The record execs came to Britney after a particularly bad few weeks for her, diet wise. According to a source for NW, over the past two weeks, “[Britney] went to the supermarket one day and loaded up on chips and all sorts of chocolate bars. She brought it all home and has been chowing down like there’s no tomorrow…She’s been so depressed over Kevin and the state of her marriage that all she wants to do is eat to stop the pain.”

Cher To Hit Vegas?

Retirement obviously doesn't sit well with Cher, who might be the next superstar to set up shop in Las Vegas.

The well-preserved diva-saur - who just finished a three-year "farewell" tour - is in talks to take the stage at the Coliseum at Caesars Palace for a whopping $60 million when Celine Dion gives up the same stage next year. Cher will be paid roughly the same sum Barry Manilow is getting at the Las Vegas Hilton. Elton John also has a regular gig at Caesars.

J.Lo Sues

Jennifer Lopez is suing ex-husband Ojani Noa, charging that he demanded $5 million to shelve a book containing revelations about their relationship.

Lopez's lawsuit, filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges that Noa, her first husband, violated a confidentiality agreement by distributing the manuscript of his book to publishers, TV's The Insider reports. Lopez, 36, is seeking a restraining order to keep the manuscript from becoming public.

A description of the manuscript first appeared Jan. 11 in the New York Post, prompting Lopez's lawyers to contact Noa's legal representatives. Noa replied in a letter that he was planning to keep shopping his book, the suit claims.

In another letter, the suit shows, Noa said "that he would not agree to refrain from marketing his book unless (Lopez) paid him the sum of $5 million."
to the New York Post story, Noa writes in his book, The Unknown Truth: A Portrait of a Serial Thriller, that Lopez cheated on him with an Anaconda castmate and had an affair with Marc Anthony while the singer was still married to Dayanara Torres.

Happy Birthday, Hef

Playboy creator Hugh M. Hefner is in the middle of an interview about his 80th birthday (which was yesterday) when a TV cameraman asks him to move a statue of former girlfriend Barbi Benton from the shelf behind him. The statue's nude breasts were in the shot and that might not pass muster with TV decency standards.

"As much as things change, they stay the same," Hefner remarks, disappointment in his voice. "There is still controversy about, maybe even more than before, not just nudity - a nude statue." That is Hefner's point - that Playboy with its mission of sexual liberation is as relevant as ever in these days of federal government crackdowns on television content that some consider indecent. "Attitudes toward nudity and Playboy have changed, in many ways, very little," says the man who gave the world the Playboy centerfold. "In some ways it is even more political than it was in the '50s and '60s."

"Maybe to some extent 80 is the new 40," he says, smiling. "I truly believe that age - if you're healthy - age is just a number. On many levels I feel younger today than I did 10, 15 years ago." Hef has a lot to make him feel young. He lives with three young, blonde girlfriends in his ornate mansion in Holmby Hills. Their life is being documented in a hit reality TV show on the E! channel, "The Girls Next Door."

Any regrets? "Certainly it is a life well-lived and I wouldn't trade places with anybody," he said. "My life has been so rewarding and so satisfying, I would be hesitant to change anything."

GLAAD Awards

Charlize Theron was honored with a top prize from the country's leading gay organization that monitors the media.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation presented its Vanguard Award to Theron at Saturday's 17th annual GLAAD Media Awards for increasing "visibility and understanding in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community." "This is very surreal for me because two years ago, I stood right here and won my Oscar for 'Monster,'" Theron said in ceremonies at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Her portrayal of lesbian serial killer Aileen Wuornos in "Monster" won her the 2003 Academy Award for best actress.

Last year, Theron told TV's "Extra" that she and her partner, Stuart Townsend, would not wed until gay and lesbian couples attained the legal right to marry.

"I feel so fortunate that I am in a relationship with a wonderful man," Theron said Saturday night. "I find it incredibly unfair that because of our sexual preference, we have the rights that we have, and that, because of someone else's sexual preference, they don't have those same rights."

Other winners included Felicity Huffman's transsexual road trip "Transamerica" for outstanding film in limited release; cable TV's chic lesbian ensemble "The L Word" for outstanding drama series, and NBC's "Will & Grace" for outstanding comedy series. Actress Laura Dern presented Grammy-winning singer and openly lesbian breast cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award.

In what could be the big gest no-brainer in years, Lifetime has bought the rights to air repeats of "Desperate Housewives."

Episodes from the first season of the popular ABC drama, which follows the misadventures of a group of suburban housewives, will begin airing on the basic cable channel this August. As part of the deal, in 2008 Lifetime will get the rights to put the program on five days a week.

And in other DH news:

Teri Hatcher is expected to become the highest-paid television actress after demanding a cut from numerous lucrative products linked to hit show Desperate Housewives.

Hatcher's earnings are set to rocket to at least $6 million after she won a deal to promote the spin-offs, including a computer game and an online fashion store. A source tells British newspaper The Mail on Sunday, "She has been saying that, unlike the stars of Friends, who ended up making a million an episode, she is not getting enough money. "(Series producer) Disney is desperate to keep her happy so has come up with a deal that gives her a cut of profits from the video game, board game and a planned online clothing store.

"There are also plans for a cookbook, music DVD and a fragrance. This is going to be a huge, lucrative franchise and Teri has made sure she's getting a cut of every deal. "She will earn at least $6 million from spin-offs alone this year.

Marshman Jr.; Paddy Chayefsky's "Network"; Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond's "Some Like It Hot"; and Coppola and Puzo's "The Godfather Part II."

Three writers -- Allen, Coppola and Wilder -- had four films on the list, while three others had three each: William Goldman, John Huston and Charlie Kaufman.

Ali Landry Weds

Actress Ali Landry married film director Alejandro Gomez Monteverde on Saturday in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Landry, 32, wore a strapless, ivory Monique Lhuillier drop-waist wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline and full ball gown skirt. The dress was made of hand-sewn layers of organza, tulle and chiffon. In keeping with the Mexican setting, Landry wore a paprika feathered bolero after the ceremony.

"He is so beyond amazing," the Eve actress recently told Dolan Media Newswires of Monteverde. "When you dream of 'the guy' as a child, reading your fairy tales and thinking of Prince Charming, you think of all the things you want in a man. And he's everything I thought was possible. He's creative, passionate and would love to help change the world. I respect him so much."

Landry, 32, and Monteverde, who reportedly met at Bible study last year, got engaged over Memorial Day weekend in 2005, and Landry will appear in the 2006 film Bella, which Monteverde wrote, produced and directed. This is the second wedding for Landry, who wed Saved by the Bell star Mario Lopez on April 24, 2004. The couple split in June after seven weeks of marriage.

Heaton To Replace Vieira?

If you missed it, click here to watch Meredith Vieira reveal on The View that she'll be taking Katie Couric's spot.

Insiders say "Everybody Loves Raymond" star Patricia Heaton will step in for Vieira. And to help boost viewership among Latinos, the young, Argentine-born Marianela Pereyra, a veejay on Fuse TV, will be added - perhaps booting Elizabeth Hassleback.

"Patty Heaton is a Republican, so they won't need [Republican] Elizabeth any more," said our insider. "And Elizabeth doesn't really add much. Marianela will bring in the young Latina viewers - which is important," said one source.

"Patty and Marianela were going to have their own shows, but there is not enough room in the TV schedule now, so it kills two birds with one stone," the source added.

--I'd love to see Patty Heaton get into it with Star "It's all about the new, thin me" Jones.

Whitney's Got To Have It

Troubled singer Whitney Houston's alleged crack addiction has turned her into a sex-hungry fiend, according to her sister-in-law, Tina Brown.

As part of a two-week world exclusive, Brown, the sister of Houston's husband Bobby Brown, has revealed the full extent of the singer's drug problems to The National Enquirer tabloid. After telling all about Houston's secret life last week, Brown is now revealing how her sister-in-law's alleged drug habit has made the singer sex-mad.

Brown tells the Enquirer: "Whitney has a problem. She's got to have it. “Bobby always tells me: 'If you only knew. She's with this one and with that one. It's no secret.' "I've seen her with a woman a couple of times. They were walking around without their shirts on when I came in the house."

KFed Violates Dolby Copyright

Kevin Federline's new anti-media track, "America's Most Hated," is indeed harvesting hatred, but not from who you might expect. New-wave trailblazer Thomas Dolby is considering taking legal action against K-Fed for violating copyright law by using his 1983 smash, "She Blinded Me With Science," in the song.

"You can't just take a very well-known piece of music and add your own vitriolic rap over the top of it and get away with it," Dolby told MTV News on Wednesday (April 5). "If anybody's going to sing nasty lyrics over my music, it's going to be me." "America's Most Hated," which Federline recently debuted on his MySpace page, actually samples Mobb Deep's "Got It Twisted," which sampled "She Blinded Me With Science." "Mobb Deep came to me and asked for a license," said Dolby, who was paid a fee and receives royalties for Mobb Deep's song. "We issue licenses all the time, for movies and TV shows and so on. I was aware of the Mobb Deep one, but I certainly never issued a license to Kevin Federline."

Dolby caught wind of the expletive-filled song, which begins with the line "This is for the haters," through a fan's posting on his own Web site's forum and made a plea to Federline on his blog. "I considered turning a blind eye to it other than, as I mentioned on my site, asking him politely to take it down," Dolby said. "But I found out today that it aired on VH1 last week. So it's more than just an MP3 download. It's airing on TV, and there's no question it's taken from the Mobb Deep record. It's like what Vanilla Ice did with 'Ice Ice Baby' [illegally sampling Queen and David Bowie's 'Under Pressure'], although I think Vanilla Ice is a superstar compared to this guy."

--You said it, Thomas.

Watch Your Back, Naomi

Rosie O'Donnell has challenged supermodel Naomi Campbell to a fight, insisting the British beauty needs someone to "kick her a*s".

O'Donnell was horrified when the catwalk queen was charged with assault in New York City last month after she allegedly beat her assistant with a mobile telephone. And she plans to exert her own brand of justice on the fiery model. O'Donnell explains, "I just picture this cute little Mexican woman working saying, Excuse me Miss Campbell can I possibly get you... ' and Naomi going, 'Get away from me, bam bam bam!'

"To make matters worse she had that jewel-encrusted cell phone. That's got to score with the diamonds. "She looks like you could snap her in two but she's a tough-a*s, kick-a*s woman "I would actually like to fight her. I think for all the people that she's beaten up, I think she needs a big 200 pound lesbian to kick her a*s."

The cover is part of several days of events celebrating the magazine's 100-issue milestone, including poker and golf tournaments at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel-casino, a Maxim public relations representative said this week.

Russell Simmons and his wife, Kimora Lee, have announced their separation - but the couple plan to host a fundraiser Saturday at Donald Trump's estate in Palm Beach. The dinner and auction at Mar-a-Lago will benefit Art for Life, which Simmons and his brothers founded. The hip-hop mogul has called on celebrity friends to attend the $1,000-a-person event.

"This will be the best party Mar-a-Lago has ever seen," Simmons said Wednesday while sitting poolside at the Delano hotel. "I have to tell Kimora to bring one of my suits." Jamie Foxx, Antonio "L.A." Reid and Denise Rich will be honored for their philanthropic efforts to promote art among the youth.

Others expected to attend include Trump and his wife, Melania; Venus and Serena Williams; and Kelly Rowland. Up for bid will be items such as a trip to the Bahamas for 20 on a chartered jet, couture gowns and top-of-the-line beauty products. "Last year my wife got a Rolls-Royce," Simmons said.

Any Day Now

Tom Cruise may have found a way to keep Katie Holmes from violating the precepts of Scientology and shrieking in pain when she gives birth to their child. It's a specially crafted adult pacifier, reports Star magazine.

"He commissioned an adult-sized 'binky' for her to clench between her teeth, hoping that it'll squelch her screams," a source tells the mag. "In keeping with a Scientology silent birth, Tom is prepared to do whatever it takes to muffle Katie's moans and groans during the delivery." Cruise's PR rep, Arnold Robinson, denied the existence of an adult pacifier. As for its manufacture, a spokeswoman for NYU's School of Dentistry told Lowdown: "We haven't heard of it, but it doesn't mean a dentist wouldn't do it."

The alleged pacifier, which is reportedly made of plastic and molded to perfectly fit the 27-year-old Katie's mouth, could be deployed very soon. Cruise recently told a German television interviewer: "Katie could be having our baby at any minute."

Matt Cheated

Matt LeBlanc, who filed for divorce from his wife last week, has a new real-life romantic costar: Andrea Anders, who plays his neighbor on the sitcom Joey.

LeBlanc's split from his wife of three years, Melissa, came as a surprise to the public – and to Melissa herself. The trouble started in January when LeBlanc, 38, unexpectedly announced that he was moving out of the Encino, Calif., home he shared with Melissa, 41, and their 2-year-old daughter Marina. "It was very sudden," Melissa's longtime friend Kelly Phillips says. "She was absolutely blindsided by what transpired."

Then in March, Melissa accused her husband of being involved with another woman. LeBlanc, who had moved into an L.A. apartment near the studio where he tapes Joey, admitted he was. Still, friends say, Melissa hoped for a reconciliation – and was stunned when, on March 30, an attorney for her husband called with the news that LeBlanc was about to file for divorce. "She wanted to do counseling or therapy," a pal says. "But Matt just didn’t want to work it out."

After the divorce announcement was made, LeBlanc even brought the Wisconsin-born Anders – who recently shot a pilot for Friends producer David Crane – to the ranch house north of Los Angeles that he and Melissa had shared. While LeBlanc's rep declines to comment on the situation, saying, "We're not interested in having a public discussion about private family matters," others say LeBlanc's involvement with Anders was one of the causes of the divorce filing.

Trouble In Brangelinaville?

Looks like Hollywood's sexiest couple are on the rocks. While some reports say that the heavily pregnant Angelina Jolie has kicked her hunky husband-to-be out of the bedroom and onto the couch, another report literally goes a few steps further — and has Brad Pitt walking out the door.

"Brad and Ange have been fighting like cat and dog over where to have the baby, over whether Angelina should continue to fly and also over her thinness," a source reveals in NW magazine. Pitt is also apparently "under pressure" from his family to get Ange to the alter as soon as possible because Brad's mom, Jane, is not keen on her grandchild being born out of wedlock.

But Angelina — who's seven-and-a-half months pregnant — is "not committing" to a date, and her refusal to launch into bridal mode is the main reason behind Brad's "dramatic" exit (either to the couch, or through the front door). It's yet to be confirmed whether Brad's in the lounge room of the couple's Paris apartment, or whether he's actually left. But there have been signs of trouble in Parisian paradise for some weeks, with the couple spending more and more time apart and few recent photos of them together.

One insider says: "Ange has been putting up obstacle after obstacle and it's clear to Brad she’s not just stalling anymore. She doesn’t seem to have any intention of marrying him any time soon."

Jess's New Album

Jessica Simpson's back in the studio this week — but she's not leaving the drama of her divorce behind.

The singer's long-delayed album, And the Band Played On, was originally due in November but was pushed back shortly before the news of her split from husband Nick Lachey was announced. Up to that point, Simpson planned on making the album a country-club combo. But now that she's gone through so much, she's reconsidered what kind of statement she wants to make.

"I think that with my music, you can't help but tell people a story about your life," Simpson said. "I believe that every artist, that's their artistry — it comes out of them naturally, through lyrics, through music, through instrumentation. So with this next record, you will see and hear a lot of things I've been going through. And if that can offer any inspiration to anybody else going through the same situations, so be it. That's why I'm here."

So far, Simpson — who's executive producing the project — has recorded with a host of producers known for their hits in R&B: Corey Rooney, Scott Storch, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The latter pair are collaborating with Simpson on about seven songs, she said. "They are angels, they are amazing, they're so talented," she gushed. "You are in awe just sitting next to them and being able to write with them. And Janet Jackson, who I absolutely adore, is down the hall. She's such a sweetheart, and they've got such a great vibe. We've had a great time working together."

--Jimmy Jam? Janet Jackson? Please tell me she isn't trying to do hip hop...

According to Female First, the highly trio are taking some much-needed time out of their busy schedule of rehab and frequent hospitalizations to head to Maui. By taking a vacation in Hawaii, the threesome hopes to get some much-needed time away from their "problems".

"Courtney is determined to be a calming influence on Lindsay who has had a really tough time of things, and she also adores Kate. When Kate was in rehab following damning footage of her cocaine abuse last September, Courtney was on standby to help her through it."

A source refers to the "wild threesome" as "firm friends".

--The coke dealers of Hawaii should be excited.

Another Fiddy Movie

50 Cent hasn't given up on his Hollywood dreams just because fans didn't exactly pack theaters for his acting debut in "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."

The rapper has signed on to star opposite Nicolas Cage in the boxing flick "The Dance." According to Variety magazine, the film will center on the real-life story of prison boxing coach Billy "The Kid" Roth.

The movie is based on "The Dance - The Billy Roth Story," a 2003 documentary on Roth executive produced by Cage, with an eye toward developing a feature film on the trainer. Roth was a successful boxer who went on to spend more than 40 years as a volunteer boxing coach in Louisiana state prisons. Cage will take on the title role, while 50 is slated to play an inmate Roth believes has enough talent to be a contender, if only he wasn't serving a life sentence.

South Park Wins Peabody

Comedy Central's "South Park" won its first Peabody Award on Wednesday, winning praise from judges as TV's boldest, most politically incorrect satirical series.

Two Gulf Coast stations that stayed on the air throughout Hurricane Katrina won awards as well, and CNN and NBC were also honored for their coverage of the deadly storm. WWL-TV, which judges said was the only New Orleans station to broadcast in the city through the hurricane and its aftermath, and WLOX-TV, which kept Biloxi, Miss., residents informed even after broadcasters were forced to the halls when the roof of their building was blown off, were both recognized for their coverage.

The George Foster Peabody Awards, for broadcasting excellence in both news and entertainment, are given annually by the University of Georgia. Thirty-two awards will be handed out June 5 in New York, hosted by two-time recipient Jon Stewart, who anchors Comedy Central's "The Daily Show."

"South Park" was praised as a show that "pushes all the buttons, turns up the heat and shatters every taboo," Peabody Awards Director Horace Newcomb said. "Through that process of offending it reminds us of the need for being tolerant."

Who Will Replace Her?

In what was possibly the worst kept secret of the year, Katie Couric is leaving the Today show.

On her 15th anniversary on "Today," Katie Couric told viewers Wednesday she's leaving to join CBS and become the first woman to solely anchor a network evening newscast.

"I wanted to tell all of you out there ... that after listening to my heart and my gut ... I've decided I'll be leaving 'Today' at the end of May," she said. "I really feel as if we've become friends through the years."

The 49-year-old Couric, the longest-serving anchor in "Today" show history, is expected to replace Bob Schieffer on the third-rated CBS broadcast in September. Following a months-long guessing game that has consumed the TV industry, Couric chose the 15th anniversary of her first day as "Today" co-host in 1991 to say that it's time for a change.

"It's been such an honor and a privilege to occupy this seat for as long as I have," she said. "Sometimes I think change is a good thing," Couric said. "Although it may be terrifying to get out of your comfort zone, it's also very exciting to start a new chapter in your life." "It's hard to imagine being here and not having you sitting next to us," co-host Matt Lauer told her.

--I threw up in my mouth a little when she looked at Matt and said, "Like Dorothy said to the Scarecrow, 'I think I'm going to miss you most of all.'"

Get The Hint, Jill

Jennifer Aniston was amazed when Catherine Keener shielded her from a reporter on Today, after the journalist persistently questioned Aniston over reported wedding plans.

Yesterday's interview grew tense when Jill Rappaport asked the former Friends actress to comment on reports talk show queen Oprah Winfrey is planning to throw an $8 million wedding for the star and her new boyfriend Vince Vaughn. The actresses were appearing on the show to promote their upcoming movie Friends with Money, but the interview inevitably turned to Aniston's personal life.

Rappaport asked the intrusive question just moments after Aniston had expressed reluctance to talk about her private life. Keener snapped, "I thought you weren't going to go there?" But the reporter persisted, saying she was curious because she had never been to an $8 million wedding, only for Keener to bite back with, "And now you won't be." Aniston remained tight-lipped throughout the debacle.

Move Over Pam

Jessica Simpson is set to star in a movie remake of 'Baywatch'.

The actress will play a sexy lifeguard in the film version of the hit 90's show, which turned Pamela Anderson into a star. The 'Newlyweds' beauty may even copy Pamela's famous slow-motion running in the movie.

A source is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "Jessica really caught the eye in 'The Dukes of Hazzard' film last summer. "She was the unanimous choice for the 'Baywatch' role." The insider added: "Jessica has all the assets to make the part her own."

Jessica apparently won't have any problem flaunting her curves in one of the skimpy red swimsuits worn by the film's lifeguards - because she loves her breasts. The star - who recently split from husband Nick Lachey after three years of marriage - recently said she thinks her boobs are wonderful. She said: "I have amazing boobs. They're just perfect."

Shut Down!

Us Weekly says Lindsay Lohan tried but failed to bag Oscar winner George Clooney recently at New York's Bungalow 8.

According to the celeb mag, the teen queen used her full bag of wiles on the actor (presumably starting with the previously sure-fire, "Hi! I'm Lindsay Lohan"). Sadly, a spy says, George wasn't biting. They left the club separately.

I'm Sure It Will Be Oscar-Worthy

Love her or hate her, she is not going away. MTV reports that Kristin Cavallari is headed to the big screen.

Kristen has been rumored to be in an Al Pacino movie but apparently that fell through. Yesterday it was announced that she will make her big screen debut in a indie psychologically thriller called Fingerprints. MTV reports:

“Fingerprints” will co-star Brittany Snow (”The Pacifier,” “American Dreams”), who is coming off a dark role on “Nip/Tuck.” Snow will play a Southern girl who moves back in with her family after leaving rehab. Her and her sister, played by Cavallari, then get involved in an investigation into the strange paralysis of several residents.

Nicole Surprises AM

Nicole Richie splashed out on a surprise party for her ex-fiance DJ AM on Saturday night and spent the evening proclaiming her love for the club star.

Richie and managers of Las Vegas, Nevada's trendy Pure nightclub, where DJ AM has a residency, conspired to treat the record spinner to a 33rd birthday to remember. Richie and Avril Lavigne joined the Dj, real name Adam Goldstein, and 100 of his friends and family at the surprise party.

An insider says, "Adam thought he'd be working on Saturday night. He quickly found out that he had the night off. Taking his place was his childhood idol, DJ Jazzy Jeff.

"Having never seen a set by Jazzy, AM became extremely excited, hugging and kissing Nicole, who stood by his side the entire evening." Richie also made a special toast to her ex, stating, "This is his eighth year of sobriety. I'm so proud of you. You've come so far and I love you so much."

Hef Says He's Sorry

Film star Jessica Alba forgave Playboy magazine on Tuesday for making her an unwitting cover girl after founder Hugh Hefner sent the actress a personal apology and pledged to donate money to her favorite charities.

Alba had threatened to sue Playboy after the men's magazine printed a photo of the bikini-clad actress from her 2005 movie "Into the Blue" on the cover of its March issue -- which she said duped readers into thinking she was nude inside.

"In light of Mr. Hefner's personal apology for Playboy's unauthorized use of my photo on their cover, I have decided to discontinue my claims against them," Alba, 24, said in a written statement. "This was never about money, it was about setting the record straight about something that was done without my knowledge or consent," she added.

In his letter to Alba, Hefner apologized for "any distress unintentionally caused by the publication of your photo" on the March cover. "What was intended as a tribute to your tremendous popularity has been misinterpreted by some as something else for which we are truly sorry since we are among your biggest fans," Hefner said.

The ex-wife of Country singer Garth Brooks experienced a kidnapping ordeal at her Oklahoma home on Monday, according to authorities. Sandy Brooks was kidnapped at gunpoint by Quintine Cornelius Harper, 24, a man who worked on her farm who was wanted on an outstanding warrant.

When Brooks allowed a bail bondsman onto her property to apprehend Harper, the worker reportedly drew a weapon and forced Brooks into a car and forced her to drive away. After driving for several miles, Brooks stopped the car and fled into a convenience store, according to Rogers County undersheriff Barry Lamb, who says Harper was arrested and charged Tuesday with kidnapping and weapons offenses.

A Message From Chris Farley

A very important message from Chris Farley--from beyond the grave.

Eight years after his fatal overdose, the late Saturday Night Live funnyman has been resurrected for a series of billboard advertisements plugging a new treatment for drug and alcohol abuse from Hythiam Inc.

Farley's body was found Dec. 18, 1997, in his Chicago apartment. A coroner ruled that Farley died inadvertently as a result of a deadly cocktail of morphine and cocaine. He was 33.

The first sign which went up in Los Angeles, features Farley's image with the slogan "It wasn't all his fault." The billboard will be erected on the Sunset Strip adjacent to Hollywood's Chateau Marmont, the famed hotel where Farley's idol and another SNL star, John Belushi, died in 1982, also at the age of 33 from an accidental overdose of heroin and cocaine.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the ads mark the first time that Farley's estate has okayed the use of his image for commercial purposes since his death.

Hythiam, a fast-growing Los Angeles-based medical firm, reportedly paid $25,000 to his family for the right to use the image. The company's chief executive, Terren S. Peizer, says the ads will let people battling drug and alcohol addiction know that there are alternative treatments for their disease.

The billboards focus on a new outpatient prescription drug treatment called Prometa. "We felt it was an effective way of getting people to focus on our message point, because it's unusual to see a celebrity in this fashion," Peizer told the Times.

But the ads are not without controversy. "It's completely tasteless to harness the dead for commercial gain," Gary Ruskin, executive director of Commercial Alert--a nonprofit advertising watchdog based in Portland, Oregon--told E! Online. "The ads are deceptive because they suggest Chris would still be alive today if he took Prometa. What evidence is there that's true? My understanding is that Farley died of an overdose of morphine and cocaine, and the drug doesn't even treat opiates," he added. "This is part of a trend by ad agencies that shows no respect for the dead. It's also part of how the greed in the advertising industry has no shame at all, and neither does the company."

Is This Director High?

I reported that this was a possibility months ago, but it looks like it actually might happen:

House of Wax notwithstanding, The Simple Life star Paris Hilton has yet to make a major impression on the big screen. That may soon change. Film director T. Rajeevnath, who is based in Thiruvananthapuram, India, wants Hilton to play Mother Teresa is a movie biography he is planning about the Nobel laureate who worked among Calcutta's poor with the Missionaries of Charity.

"Her features resemble Mother Teresa," Rajeevnath – whose films include his native country's hits "Moksham," "Janani" and "Thannal" – says of Hilton, according to the French Press Agency. The filmmaker adds, "A meeting with Paris Hilton is scheduled for the end of April."

Rajeevnath says he stumbled upon this casting idea when he saw a computer-generated image showing what he considers a close facial resemblance between the 25-year-old hotel heiress and the Albanian-born nun, who died in 1997. Pope John Paul beatified Mother Teresa in 2003. Indian press reports say shooting in West Bengal and several foreign countries is scheduled to begin in early 2007, and casting is expected to be rounded out by Kamal Haasan in the role of a priest and Mithun Chakraborty as Communist leader Jyoti Basu.

P. Zitty?

On Friday, P. Diddy filed a $1.5 million lawsuit against Guthy Renker, the makers of Proactiv Solution for failing to leave his skin "with no bumps."

Along with Vanessa Williams, Alicia Keys and Jessica Simpson, P. Diddy became a spokesperson for Proactive Solutions, a skin product that promises to "banish their breakouts and get them on the path to clear, beautiful, star-quality skin." In the infomercial, the rap mogul testifies how he got hip to Proactive Solution after using the product and seeing his pimples disappear. "I use Proactive," says Diddy in the ad, because it helps "moisturize my situation and preserve my sexy."

However, just months after the ads, Diddy says he started to experience breakouts and decided to file suit, saying the product has discredited him in the hip-hop community. "I look foolish on an infomercial promoting a product for skin care and my skin still has bumps on it," says P. Diddy in a statement.

Hours later, Guthy Renker filed a countersuit claiming that Diddy has failed to "preserve his sexy" and carefully follow the product instructions. The corporation also cites Diddy's affiliation with Diet Pepsi, for which he is also a spokesperson, as the true source of his acne woes. In the counter-suit, Guthy Renker claims that Diddy's consumption of sugary products such as Diet Pepsi has neutralized the cleansing effects Proactiv Solution provides.

"Even though Diet Pepsi has no calories, fat or carbs, it still contains aspartame, potassium benzoate, phosphoric acid and citric acid which can wreak havoc on skin," said a source at Guthy Renker. The Pepsi connection is sound, according to Dr. Julian Whitaker, who says that "aspartame has been proven to increase appetite, especially cravings for sweets."

"Proactive promises a risk fee, money-back trial," says Diddy. "After all I've been through, I want my money back and more."

--Hmmm...shall we call him P. Zitty now?

Pink Says

Pink has hailed stars Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon as true role models, insisting their intelligence and caring natures set them apart from their superficial Hollywood counterparts.

The Stupid Girls singer is horrified by the current wave of stars obsessed with fashion, makeup and partying and is urging women to be more selfless and take notice of the world around them.

She says, "Women had to fight to get where we are now, but if you look at popular culture you'd think we're completely happy in thongs with a stripper's pole between our thighs, and all we care about is the latest pair of shoes." "I think Oprah is absolutely amazing, she runs the world as she should. I admire Angelina Jolie for the work she's doing for the UN. She's sexy smart, caring, conscious, aware - as is Reese Witherspoon."

"And I know a lot of extra single moms who are volunteering with their only extra hour in the day. They're working with sick kids, or reading to people who can't read." "I'm sick of reading about people shopping and fake tits."

Susan Sarandon wants the U.S. presidential elections to be monitored by outside interests. The “Bull Durham” star says that the 2004 vote was so fraudulent that we need international oversight — like troubled third-world countries do.

“I believe our next election should be monitored by international entities, just like it happened in Haiti and Iraq,” Sarandon told Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, according to our translator. “The last one was an embarrassment. Everybody knew there was fraud, but nothing was done about it. In some states there were more votes than people able to vote.”

Sarandon, who recently made headlines when she expressed her disappointment with Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton — who is widely considered to be a possible presidential candidate — and isn’t terribly optimistic about other Dems. “I honestly hope that the Democratic Party finds a candidate for the presidency, but I recognize that the scenario isn’t inspiring.”

Her assessment of President Bush’s administration isn’t upbeat either. “I think we’ve never been as close to George Orwell’s ‘1984’ as before,” she said. “We live in a society where individual rights and legality are definitely threatened and that’s scary.”

--Susan: I think you're a great actress. Can it and make a movie. Warm regards, Lawren

Big Show For the Big Dance

I gotta give my town credit: they've put on a great show for the Big Dance. The city is packed, business is booming, and all the out-of-towners I've talked to have had nothing but nice things to say about Indianapolis.

I went downtown with some friends on Saturday to people watch and listen to some of the bands. The Bodeans sounded great. Hoobastank, on the other hand, did just that: stank. They were awful, and they didn't even have any idea who was playing in the games that day. Morons.

Then, there was a Nick Lachey sighting. He came out on stage and talked for a bit--didn't sing though. The rest of the day consisted of eating and drinking in packed bars.

Yesterday I didn't come downtown for all the concerts. I instead went straight to a party at the Columbia Club where a lot of VIPs were drinking and relaxing before they went on stage.

As editor of MP&S, I always report on what celebs are doing in cities other than my own. I'd love to bring you hot scoop, but honestly, it usually doesn't happen in Indiana. The best I can do is report who I saw yesterday. I'm not an autograph hound, so I just have pics from afar, and you'll have to take my word for it.

Dick Enberg (showing his age)
Greg Gumbel (not as chunky looking in person)
Carrie Underwood (she's a gorgeous girl, and sweet as can be)
Kareem Abdul Jabbar (ok, so I knew he was tall...but I didn't realize JUST how tall!)
Rupert from Survivor (Looked as ragged as usual)
Jared the Subway guy (T-O-O-L)
Nick Lachey (again--this time just a few feet away; too much hair gel)
John Mellencamp (like Dick, he's showing his age, but man can he still rock. He rocked out on the Circle to over 80,000 people. He's a true showman who appreciates his fans.

That's all, folks...

He never goes out when he's on the road. He stays in so he can talk to me all night. It's pretty funny . . . [cheating] seems to be sort of an epidemic . . . I blame the players. I don't blame anybody else . . . everybody makes mistakes. I'm not saying I wouldn't forgive my husband. It would greatly depend on the situation, because that's what marriage is about . . . "

Why Be Near Katie Right Now?

With fiancée Katie Holmes close to giving birth, expectant dad Tom Cruise still found time on Saturday to sit for a brief interview on German TV to promote his movie Mission: Impossible 3, set for worldwide release next month.

Speaking on the program Wettendass (loosely translated: "Wanna Bet?"), Cruise said he arrived directly from the airport but worried he would have to head right back again "because Katie could be having our baby at any minute."

He also assured his interviewer, Mirjam Weichselbraun, that Katie was feeling good. Mostly Cruise discussed M:I3 and how arduous the stunts were, though as he was saying goodbye, Weichselbraun managed to sneak in one last question about the impending arrival. Have the parents-to-be picked out a name? Yes, Tom answered, though he wouldn't reveal it.

Joey Goes To Trial

Joey Buttafuoco, the Long Island body shop owner who gained notoriety in the 1990s when his teenage girlfriend shot his wife, has been ordered to stand trial on a felony charge of illegally possessing ammunition.

Authorities said Buttafuoco, who has pleaded not guilty, violated terms of his probation by possessing ammunition found during a search last August of his San Fernando Valley home. On Thursday, Superior Court Judge Sanjay Kumar ordered him to trial.

Buttafuoco was sentenced to a year in jail and five years' probation in March 2004 after pleading guilty to insurance fraud. Prosecutors said Buttafuoco, who co-owned a San Fernando Valley auto body shop, told undercover investigators how to file false claims and cheat insurance companies.

Campbell Brown Weds

Weekend Today co-anchor Campbell Brown, 37, and Dan Senor, 34, a FOX News analyst, were married on Sunday in Colorado.

The bride wore a Vera Wang gown at the afternoon ceremony, which took place at the Beaver Creek Chapel in Beaver Creek, Colo. After the "I do's," guests headed to Beaver Creek Mountain for a reception at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch resort.

Brown, who is also a correspondent for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and the Today show, had interviewed Senor numerous times when he worked as a Bush foreign policy advisor. They were first reported to be dating in October 2004, and got engaged last November.

Senor, a Republican strategist as well as a FOX News contributor, previously worked in Iraq as a spokesperson for and senior advisor to U.S. Ambassador Paul Bremer. Brown, who often fills in for Today's Katie Couric, is considered one of the top contenders to replace Couric should she jump to CBS Evening News.

The movie version of cult animated TV series The Simpsons will hit cinema screens in 2007.

Twentieth Century Fox is fulfilling the wish of many a Simpsons fan by taking America's favorite family to the cinema - and trailers are already running in US theatres.

The 25 second promo features Homer Simpson in his underpants, after being introduced as "the greatest hero in American history."

Hall of Fame

Antoine "Fats" Domino didn't attend his induction Saturday into the Delta Music Museum Hall of Fame, but said he was deeply touched by the honor.

"I have received many honors in my lifetime, however none touch my heart as much as being recognized by the people of my home state Louisiana," the musician known for "Blueberry Hill" and "Ain't That a Shame" wrote in a letter.

Family friend Cleo Banquer delivered the letter, saying Domino didn't feel up to the 150-mile trip from Harvey, where he is living with his wife and daughter.

Domino still plans to perform at the 2006 Jazz & Heritage Festival in New Orleans this May, Banquer said. Hurricane Katrina seriously damaged the Ninth Ward home where Domino rode out the storm before being rescued.
