Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia, niece and uncle on Heroes, and off-screen lovers since late 2007, have repotedly ended their real-life romance. Us blame theirs age difference (“[She’s] young. She likes to go out in the Hollywood scene and that’s not his style” says Us‘ source), which would help explain why the teenage bombshell was smooching Jesse McCartney, 21, earlier this month (Milo is 31). But we think the real problem is Heroes. With ratings spiralling downward, Hayden will have to stay far away from other cast members if she wants her career to survive.
Bridget Marquardt made tongues wag when she stepped out on Grammy night in a boobalicious purple dress with a very handsome accessory – her new boyfriend, director Nick Carpenter.
The new couple have fun Valentine’s Day plans. “I’m doing a club appearance in Vegas at Studio 54, so he’ll be my valentine and go along with me,” Bridget said.
So far, things are going “really good” with the couple, who likes to “just hang out, sit home and drink wine and play board games!”
Girls Next Door Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson‘s love lives are also going along swimmingly. Bridget says she thinks Holly and beau Criss Angel are headed for the altar. “I do think they’ll get married. I really do,” Bridget revealed.
Plans are moving along for Kendra’s wedding to Hank Baskett at the Mansion this summer too! “It’s supposed to be there, and Hef really wants to walk Kendra down the aisle,” Bridget dished.
Who do you think did the best post-Hef? Kendra snagged herself a football stud, and Holly’s got a magic man – but Bridget’s new piece is quite a hottie! [Source: Us Magazine, E! Online; Photo: Getty Images]
We can barely muster the enthusiasm to type this, so obvious was it from the moment it happened, but, guess what? Irritating British socialite Peaches Geldof is to divorce her husband Max Drummey! Never! Youre joking! Etc. Even more infuriating is the press statement she’s issued to confirm the news. As if it was a real marriage, or something.
After much soul-searching we have made the mutual decision to end our marriage and have agreed to go our separate ways. Our parting is amicable and both of us still respect and care about each other immensely. There were no other people involved in this decision and we both look forward to a future as good friends.”
How noble of you both. Congratulations on making it so far in the first place. Now please find a less immature way of getting attention next time, Peaches. And perhaps searching out a good tattoo removal place for that Max inking on your wrist could be a good first step as a single girl? [Photo: Splash News Online]
There is such a thing as karma, y’all. After demonstrating perhaps the most insulting humiliation upon his babymama Melanie B by publicly doubting his paternity of their daughter Angel, Eddie Murphy is now paying some of that bad behavior back. In cold, hard, cash. The News of the World reports that Eddie will be paying $50,000 a month in support for his daughter until she turns 18, working out at around $10 million in total.
Mel is delighted that the case is over as she just wanted what was right for her girl. It was never about money it was Mel’s way of asking Eddie to show consideration for Angel, reports the paper.
It also claims Eddie has now agreed to see his 20-month-old daughter. ?Golf claps?. Now that’s fatherhood, eh? [Photo: Splash News Online]

It just gets worse for Mischa Barton. Reports now claim that Kooks bandmember Luke Pritchard has finished with her after a fling that saw them chewing each others faces off in a London comedy club only last week. Oh, how quickly love fades. And it faded as soon as the former Hollywood starlet suggested he come and see her at her place in Paris.
“He said he didn’t think they had a future and it was better they went their separate ways. Mischa was heartbroken,” reports The Sun.
Well, at least it’s semi-reassuring to know that typical sh*tty guy behaviour is universal, we suppose. But it’s also a salutary lesson of the fickle hand of fame too. Just five years ago, who would have thought that every teen girls’ idol would be a hit-movie-free fashion disaster zone who could get dumped by a spotty C-list British indie boy? Sigh. Blake Lively, you may not believe it now, but this could be your 2014. [Photo: Splash News Online]
In a weekend that’s seen all the great celebrity life moments occur (a birth, a marriage, and a tear-filled award acceptance speech), it looks like we’ve got the full set. Yes, a divorce! Totally unsurprisingly, it seems drugs love’s young dream Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil are headed for the divorce courts. According to the Mail Online, Blake has instructed lawyers to begin divorce proceedings after seeing Amy shacked up with pretty posh boy Josh Bowman in St Lucia.
Huh. We’re no fans of Blake ourselves, but Amy really put the nail in the coffin of their relationship this weekend with a startlingly frank interview with the News of the World, where she branded hubby “rubbish in bed” and how she felt “dead” every time she slept with him.
“I love it here and have never felt so happy. In fact I don’t think I’m ever going home. I was supposed to go last week but I thought f*** that, I’m staying! Especially as I met Josh here. He couldn’t be more different from my husband, which is not a bad thing,” she said.
Well, now it seems Josh has flown back to the UK, so we’ll see what happens there. We’d advise you to find the closest hills, Josh, and run for them. [Photo: Splash News Online]
The ongoing Madonna vs Guy PR battle feels ever more like being trapped in a room while the warring ex-couple snipe “No, you’re an ass,” “No, YOU’RE an ass,” and throw household objects at each other over and over and over again. The latest development sees the pair release a joint statement clearing up the “confusion” over Madonna’s camp saying she’d left him $76 million in the divorce settlement. (Translation: Guy’s lawyers went apeshit and many angry and expensive phone calls and e-mails went back and forth between the two parties).
“We have tried to maintain a dignified silence regarding the details of our divorce for the last few months whilst accepting the obvious media interest. A misleading and inaccurate statement, specifically in relation to the sums of money involved, was wrongly issued to AP this week. The financial details of the settlement will remain private, save to say that both of us are happy with our agreement. Our primary concern remains the care and wellbeing of our children,” the statement reads.
OK! Whatever you say, guys. We never heard $76 million, in fact we covered our ears and went “la la la la la” anytime we heard any news we thought might be “misleading”. Now can you both please shut up about the whole thing and get ready to prep that HAPPY, FUN family Christmas you’ve got planned? [Photo: WireImage]
Funny friendships these celebrities have. Back in 2003, Madonna and Britney were the latest superstar NBFs, after sharing a kiss at the VMAs and then teaming up for the most disappointing duet ever with Me Against The Music. Then, as BritneyInc imploded, Madge was curiously absent (too busy wearing flower-print dresses and writing childrens’ stories at that stage, probably, which already sounds like another lifetime ago). But this year, as the Britney comeback juggernaut thunders apace, the ladies have already hooked up onstage on Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet tour, and it looks like Lady Ciccone is about to return the favor on Britney’s 2009 tour.
“There’s been talk of Madonna making an appearance, and there’s so many places we could take that. At this point, the main issue is timing,” Britney’s choreographer Wade Robson tells Metro.
Excitement! Also, Madonna better not consign those demure dresses to the back of her closet just yet, as it’s been reported she’ll be spending Christmas in England with Guy and family after the pair called a truce for the children. Lovely! Sure to be awkward and painful and hellish, but lovely! [Photo: FilmMagic]
We love a good mouthy celebrity relative. For a few years, we relished the regular appearance of Sadie Bomar, Justin Timberlake‘s granny, in various celeb-rag news stories, where she’d pour forth about just why he broke up with Britney — until someone very firmly and loudly told her to stop talking to those nice friendly news people. And Guy Ritchie’s dad John is another aged family member who doesn’t mind giving the world’s media a nice un-sanitized quote. This time he’s stepped in on his son’s split with Madonna — and in particular, on the custody arrangements for Rocco and David Banda.
“The children are in New York with Madonna at the moment. Our worry is she won’t send them back, and Guy hopes she won’t keep them,” he told Closer magazine. “I wasn’t upset they parted. I’m pleased for Guy that it’s over.”
!!! is all we can say, really. We totally get papa Ritchie’s concern for his son, but Madonna as kidnapper? We can’t see it for, oooh, about a million trillion reasons. [Photo: WireImage]
Is it over between Amy Winehouse and Blake Incarcerated? That’s what’s been claimed this weekend, as Blake has apparently left her for German model Sophie Schandorff – the girl he mouthed “I love you” to back in April. Amy’s now said to have finally — FINALLY — conceded that he’s a no-good oxygen thief, and that it’s time to call it a day.
“It’s over. There’s no way back for us now. It was never going to last. We were only together for sex. I fancied him like mad, like no one else I’ve ever known. But it’s not enough, is it?” the News of the World reports her as saying.
It’s shocking news, it really is. Who’d have thought that a relationship that saw Amy go from fairly edgy, talented singer to drug-addled, underweight, unstable mess willing to engage in lesbian romps to keep your man could end? [Photo: Splash News Online]
