What to do if you’re feeling beat up from a divorce and adoption rejection? If you’re Madonna, it’s not a bad idea to plunk down $40 million, get yourself a new pad, and give yourself a little lift in life. Madonna reportedly purchased this four story townhouse in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, which features 13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms, a two car garage, a 3,000 square foot garden, nine fireplaces, an elevator, and a wine cellar with a grotto. Although it may look perfect, neighbors have reportedly said that the noise from the nearby Lexington Ave. subway line can be bothersome. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Kendra Wilkinson has a new man, but he’s just a little friend. Fiance Hank Baskett has nothing to worry about with the Girl Next Door. Kendra and Wee Man judged a powersliding competition at the Santa Monica Pier yesterday and the boobalicious blonde even attempted some sliding herself! [Photos: Splash News Online]
Is Heidi Klum expecting her fourth — fourth! — child? Sources say that sketches leaked online of her couture outfits for the forthcoming series of Project Runway allowed room for a baby bump. The German supermodel, who’s married to British singer Seal, was then snapped out in NYC yesterday wearing a massive grey scarf covering her tummy. Which, as we all know is conclusive proof that she has a bun in the oven. Or as much confirmation as we’re going to get at the moment, anyhow. If the rumor turns out to be true, congrats to the gorgeous family – who’ll soon be rivalling the Brangelina clan in sheer numbers! [Photo: Splash News Online]
The bottom three last night on Idol consisted of three contestants who will never win the competition – Anoop Desai, Matt Giraud and Lil Rounds. As blandly likable as each of them are, they can’t win, although the use of the Judges’ Save did extend Matt’s life for at least one more week. Without a doubt, they’ve each just made too many mistakes though and the next two weeks will result in their eliminations. Aside from that bit of predictability, we also got a wee bit more Quentin Tarantino during the show last night in the form of a Grindhouse-ish opening sequence, which made us happy, but he was nowhere to be found during the show. Luckily there were a few noteworthy, non-Tarantino nuggets to talk about.
5. 17 Again
Zac Efron and His Hair jetted back to L.A. from New York after hosting SNL this weekend, just for Idol (well, for that and the premiere of his new film 17 Again). The contestants got to attend the premiere and, even though it’s a complete rehash of the Big/18 Again/Freaky Friday concept, we love Leslie Mann and Thomas Lennon, and Efron proved he has some comedy chops on SNL, so it might not be totally terrible. As much as the segment was a shameless plug for the film, we love how excited real celebs get for Idol contestants.
Although some celebrities go all out for their nuptials, Salma Hayek insists she and new hubby Francois Henri-Pinault will not follow up their City Hall wedding with a lavish ceremony.
“I think a wedding is about love, friends, family, and fun,” she said. “I think spending millions of dollars on a wedding is ridiculous and it has never been my dream. I would never do that.”

Audrina Patridge put on a new face for the premiere of her straight to DVD flick, Into The Blue 2: The Reef. The Hills hottie got all dolled up for her big night, and it took us a minute to recognize the starlet. Without her ceiling eyes and Justin Bobby on her arm, she’s practically unrecognizable. Think her frenemies from the show are jealous of her gorgeous red carpet transformation?

When people break up and say, “Let’s be friends,” it usually doesn’t work out. Not so with Drew Barrymore, who brought along ex Justin Long to the Grey Gardens premiere in New York City last night.
“Justin’s here. He’s my friend, he’s supporting. I’m so glad he’s here. He’s like one of my best friends and I love him and I also think he’s the funniest dude on the planet,” she said last night.
