As usual, we were tuned into the Howard Stern Show this morning, where the gang had former LFO singer Rich Croninspilling the dirt on his romance with former flame Jennifer Love Hewitt. He may have written one of the worst songs known to mankind (“Summer Girls,” obvs), but he managed to charm us with his Boston accent and underdog attitude. Here’s just some of the juicy deets Howard was able to squeeze out of the former boy-bander – which we must point out – may not be true. The newly single Jenn-Love deserves a say!
Love supposedly made Rich wear two condoms when they had sex.
The actress apparently dragged her man to Cartier, where she purchased an “infinity ring” for the singer and declared that she wanted to one day marry him.
While appearing on VH1′s Mission: Man Band, Rich met 98 Degrees member Jeff Timmons, who revealed that Hewitt had supposedly given him the same ring while they were dating.
Cronin alleges that Hewitt cheated on him with actor Patrick Wilson, who she fell for after seeing him perform on Broadway. She eventually dumped him.
His pet name for her vagina was “missy.” Ew.
Cronin – who beat leukemia in 2005 – is in the process of launching a comeback, after he and the rest of LFO were screwed out of most of their earnings by creepy boy band manager Lou Perlman. You can check out his new video for the single “Story Of My Life” above. Did Love make a mistake by dumping this dude?
Hang on a minute! We’d barely had time to come up with a suitable celebrity couple name (AllJay? Joplan? Lilling?) and now we hear that the May-December romance between Lily Allen and gazillionaire Jay Jopling is over already.
“It was her decision to split as she’ll be away a lot this year and wouldn’t have got to see Jay much. She also felt the age gap was a bit too big. She felt that both his and her friends disapproved,” an ever-helpful close friend discloses to The Sun.
Personally, we feel cheated. We’d started our own armchair psychology about the pair, wondered if Lily had got engaged to him already, and now, kaput. Never mind. We’re sure Lily will come out with something gossip-worthy in the next few days to keep us all reading snarky blogs. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Who is Lindsay Lohan going to choose – the scruffy actor who’s adored by both award shows and sketchy socialist presidents, or the scruffy DJ with a smoker’s cough and cool sneakers? That’s the question we imagine our favorite leggings designer is asking this morning, with rumors persisting that she’s broken up with live-in girlfriend Samantha Ronson. Though Linds has denied it, the pair hasn’t been spotted together for days, and she was recently seen moving stuff out of Sam’s apartment, with her sister and assistant in tow.
But what really has tongues wagging is her date with the still-married (but doesn’t act like it) Sean Penn on Wednesday night. The celebrated actor joined the redhead and her gang of girls for a night out at Nobu. Is he just innocently dabbling in the drug that is youth, or does Sean Penn want a piece? Regardless, we think rebounding with one of the year’s biggest Oscar contenders is a brilliant career more for the troubled starlet. Lindsay can’t land roles based solely on her talent, so why not sleep her way to the top? [Photos: GettyImages]
