It’s going to take a lot more than this to convince us that Jennie Garth and Luke Perry aren’t totally and completely in luuuuv. After a couple of “they’re just friends” statements from the Beverly Hills, 90210 stars’ publicists earlier this week, Jennie’s rep tried a different tactic. They’ve been together all the time because they’re working on something!
“They have been spending a lot of time together recently because the two are working on developing a TV sitcom together,” the rep told RumorFix.com. “It will be a multi-camera half-hour show, currently we have producers and writers and are meeting with networks.”
This sounds like both an excellent idea AND a great excuse for those two to spend a lot of time “writing.”
What will this show be about? We kind of think their real-life story is made for adaptation. Much the same way James Van Der Beek plays a caricature of himself on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, Jennie and Luke could be actors who made their names in a teen soap, and despite their undeniable chemistry, never had their timing right to hook up in real life … until now, when they’re divorced and more mature. But still wacky and fun, naturally.
Or maybe we’ll just go back to writing fanfic.

Russell Brand sure does like the pop stars! Less than a year after his split with teenage dream Katy Perry, the comedian was photographed leaving the home of Spice Girl Geri Halliwell. It’s been rumored that the two have started a romance after getting reacquainted at the Olympic closing ceremony earlier this month. “Geri has said they have a spiritual connection through yoga and they practise asana together,” a friend told Britain’s Sun paper. “‘Russell is known for action between the sheets but he is actually very good at just sitting still in silence. It is something that has acted as a bond for he and Geri as their relationship blossoms.”
Considering how bummed out he looked upon leaving her house last night, we hope things are still going ok! “They’re just friends and have been out a few times, there’s not much else to add at this stage,” another friend told the Daily Mail. Regardless of the length of their relationship, this hookup will definitely be a great addition to our “WTF, They Dated?!” list of really random celebrity couples.

Kelly Taylor and Dylan McKay hooked up, broke up, reunited, had a kid together, broke up again … and most recently, she chose a Old Navy jeans over him. Through it all, Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Jennie Garth and Luke Perry have remained nothing but close friends, as far as we can tell. Their friendship even led to Perry’s cameo on Garth’s sitcom What I Like About You. So when we heard from Perez Hilton and the National Enquirer that the newly divorced Jennie, 40, and Luke, 45, might have taken a step beyond just-friends after reuniting for those Old Navy ads, it warmed our fangirl hearts.
“Since seeing Luke again, Jennie has fallen in love with him and Luke feels the same,” a source told the Enquirer, via the New York Post. “There is an electricity between them that has been revived after all these years. It just happened.”
Unfortunately, this news isn’t all that surprising for anyone who’s been reading LeAnn Rimes‘ Twitter in the past year: The country singer, who just turned 30 on Tuesday, has entered a “30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress,” her rep told People.
“This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be,” Rimes said. “All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I’m hoping they’re not going to affect me as much. I’ll have the tools to know how to deal with them.”
Rimes’ extremely svelte figure has led many to believe she suffers from an eating disorder, but it seems like her rep is trying to head off those theories right away, saying, “While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”
We won’t pile onto the body image thing, but we do think some of Rimes’ recent Twitter fights with critics, as well as her beef with husband Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville, indicate she’s had plenty of cause for stress lately. And clearly visiting the shooting range didn’t help her burn off all of that steam.
With a new album, Spitfire, and a tour coming up this fall, this sounds like a good time to get things sorted, and we wish LeAnn the best of luck with it!

“The ‘Duke’ has landed! Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz. G & I feel blessed beyond words…We did it!” Bill Rancic tweeted last night. And as anyone who’s followed his and wife Giuliana’s journey toward parenthood knows, he had a right to sound so triumphant. Their son was born at 10:12 p.m. in Denver on Wednesday via gestational carrier, E! Online reported. Both parents were in the delivery room: Bill got to cut the umbilical cord and Giuliana was the first to hold baby Edward.
“Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives,” Giuliana told her employer E!. “Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!”
Wow. We thought Kris Humphries had it bad when he was forced to try to subpoena Kanye with a Nordstrom box. Or when his ex girlfriend Myla Sinanaj was allegedly pregnant and talking to the press. Or when he got portrayed on Keeping Up With The Kardashians as Kim Kardashian‘s rude, boneheaded fiance. Getting sued over allegedly transmitting herpes, however, takes the humiliating cake. According to TMZ, a woman by the name of Kayla Goldberg contends that Kim’s ex knowingly gave her the STD during a one night stand back in August 2010. On one hand, it would be tempting to sue a celebrity for money in recompense for giving you herpes. On the other hand, now everyone knows that Kayla Goldberg was into Kris Humphries. Who cares about the herpes, Kayla? Don’t you remember when Kris allegedly called Kim “fat”? That is the real line here, people!
The sexual battery suit (which TMZ has available for your perusal) includes a lot of other embarrassing details, like the fact the two did not use a condom. We just heard the mothers of the world faint into a heap. And underneath that deafening thud? The low, victorious laugh of one Ms. Kim Kardashian, probably trying on Gucci, undoubtedly enjoying all of this.

Let’s hope this Conor Kennedy thing works out! If not, Taylor Swift is now recorded forever in the annals of Rolling Stone history, talking about buying a house near her one-time crush. Awk-ward! “That would be so amazing,” the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer gushed to the magazine about purchasing a home in Hyannis Port near the Kennedys. Llast time we checked, girl was doing just that, but…haven’t Taylor and Conor only been dating for , ike, two months? And that Page Six claimed Taylor chartered a private jet to ferry Conor from Massachusetts to Nashville? Well, uh, most millionaire-high school senior relationships work out, don’t they? Don’t they? Hoo boy…
Romantical aspects of her songwriting aside, Swift’s interview also offers an interesting insight into her psyche: if Taylor spends half as much time thinking about her relationships as she does her stage show, the woman deserves a M.S. in Couples Counseling. “After I write a song, I always end up laying awake at night thinking, ‘What are the lighting cues going to be on this? How big is the pit going to be?’ I have been thinking of some big moments that are going to happen,” Taylor explains. Haha, you’re right. What do we mean “if she spends half as much time thinking about her relationships as she does her stage show?” “I know general things about love,” Swift reveals. “How to treat people well, what you deserve and when to walk away. Other than that, love is a complete mystery – and that’s why I like to write about it.” No wonder she’s buying real estate when everyone one else is deliberating whither to leave a toothbrush at their boyfriend’s place. Heart on her sleeve, 18-year-old boyfriend hurtling toward Nashville on a chartered jet: that’s the way we like our Taylor.

It wouldn’t be a Lindsay Lohan story if it was completely straightforward, would it? Hours after TMZ reported that The Canyons star was an official suspect in a jewelry theft at friend Sam Magid‘s house, they’re now reporting that Lilo is allegedly spilling the beans about who she believes is the real culprit: Andrew Knight, son of Suge Knight. Twist! Lindsay had allegedly given Knight and another friend several of the Magid’s stolen items, only to have the two men return them to Magid. As if that wasn’t odd enough, Magid now claims that Lindsay admitted to hiding the jewelry around his home in order to protect it from other potential burglars. Unfortunately for both of them, “Lindsay confessed she was on Ambien at the time she hid the jewelry and was hazy about exactly what happened.” Right. Sure. Why not? We guess our only questions then would be:
- Since when are Lindsay Lohan and Suge Knight’s son buddies? Did they have a meet cute?
- Why would Suge Knight’s son need to steal anything, let alone “$100,000 watches and sunglasses”? Doesn’t add up. Math humor!
- Lindsay was hiding Magid’s personal belongings around his house in order to protect them from other burglars? This actually seems surprisingly plausible, doesn’t it?
- Who takes Ambien and then goes to an all-night party?
After Gabby Douglas revealed to Oprah that she dealt with racist bullying while training at Virginia Beach’s Excalibur gym, representatives from Excalibur immediately came forward. Oh, not to apologize or offer support or anything. Just to viciously attack Gabby in the press while revealing that they understand virtually nothing about bullying, racism or 13-year-old girls. Sorry if that was unclear! “The accusations that are being made against the gymnasts and coaches are just sickening,” ”former Senior International Elite and National Team member” Randy Stageburg said in a statement to Gymnewstics.com. “Gabby was never a victim, in fact many would say she was one of the favorites. I never once heard her complain about girls being mean, funny how it is just now coming up.” Hmmm, he makes a good point though. Everyone knows that if you don’t immediately tell Randy Stageburg you’re being bullied, it must not have happened. We’ll be sure to sign our kids up for a tumbling class as soon as we can!
Of course, not one is calling Gabby a liar….oh wait, yes, they are. At least one person is explicitly saying that. “Gabby’s remarks were hurtful and without merit,” Excalibur Gymnastics CEO Gustavo Maure told E! News, also telling Gymnewstics.com: “Is Gabrielle a credible person just because she is an Olympic Champion? She is not giving any names or dates, leading us to believe that the accusation is fake. This wouldn’t be the first time that the media has made up a story. Thousands of gymnasts and families have supported our good conduct and our professionalism during the last 30 years.” So by “media,” do you mean an actual human being with memories of being bullied, Gustavo? Stick the gymnastics, guys. The P.R. business is not really working out for you.

Sorry, Prince Harry. Maybe you hoped we’d get bored of your game of strip billiards by now, but unfortunately for you, it happened to occur during a particularly slow time for celebrity news, so we’re still hungry for more. And if Radar’s sources are to be believed “There is video of Harry partying naked with women in the Las Vegas hotel room,” the source told the gossip site. “There have been some very quiet inquiries to see how much the video is worth.”
Well, duh. If you were taking photos of the prince’s hot ginger butt, you might as well take a video too. And it would be really smart to wait until after the photos had caused such a stir before selling the clip at a much higher price now that we are all fascinated by the scandal.
