If the rumors are true, Ashlee Simpson might have just swapped out one rock star for another. Did she think we wouldn’t notice? E! reports that allegedly Ashlee Simpson has a new man Craig Owens. Owen and Simpson have been seen out shopping and, most damningly, smooching in public. Musicians aren’t like white socks or your son’s hamsters, Ashlee. You can’t just replace them without anyone noticing!
As if being tatted up and having meticulously groomed hair (well, until recently, Pete) weren’t enough of a similarity between Simpson’s old and new mans, as a current member of the band D.R.U.G.S. Owens is signed to Wentz’s label Decaydance. “Pete did a lot for this guy,” a source told US Magazine. “Craig was in another band and got kicked out. Pete found Craig, built a band around him and signed him. He’s shocked at how this guy is repaying him.” Too bad Pete and Asheee’s divorce and custody battle couldn’t wait until she died Craig’s hair black and installed a beanie permenently on his head. Then no one ever would have ever been the wiser…
We’re personally closer to Kathy Griffin than Isaiah Mustafa on the scale of 1 to…well, Isaiah Mustafa, so we secretly thrilled to hear rumors that the Old Spice Guy and Kathy Griffin might be dating. Unfortunately, life is so rarely like the plot of She’s All That, and today the man himself went out of the way to establish that Isaiah Mustafa is single. Not that he doesn’t love and admire his friend Kathy, just not in that way. “I think she is amazing!” Mustafa gushed about the carrot-top comedian. “I think she’s a force of nature. And she’s on Broadway, so if you get a chance, go check her out!” Looks like we’ll have to find someone else to love our ponytail, glasses and paint-spattered overalls…we mean Kathy’s! Yeah, that’s the ticket…
So if Ms. Griffin isn’t currently using Isaiah’s strong yet forgiving chest as a pillow, which lucky lady is? “I just happen to be a single man!” Mustafa explained. “I like brunettes. I like red-heads or gingers. I like blonds!” BUT WHAT ABOUT PAINT-SPATTERED OVERALLS? Can’t they ever get any love?

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s “love at first sight” isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The more these two go public with their romance—dancing at the Chateau Marmont, hello—the more endearing it is. It’s probably because they were so hellbent in keeping their relationship secret at first, that now, seeing them together feels like vindication! The best part is that the out-in-the-open dates seem to be coming with more alacrity now. RPattz and KStew reportedly shared a cozy dinner together in Vancouver while filming Breaking Dawn. Apparently, one of Rob’s favorite’s spots in town is a Spanish tapas bar called La Bodega, and that’s where they decided to chill, and it’s said they were quite affectionate together! We have a feeling that La Bodega is going to be booked solid for the next couple of months now.
The couple were joined by a bunch of third wheels—Kellan Lutz, Kristen’s bodyguard and his date (that’s one lucky girlfriend) plus three other friends who joined in to share tapas. The whole group left around midnight to go back to their hotel which is apparently three blocks away (again, expect hordes outside now). Supposedly, Rob and Kristen meandered off to do their thing afterwards. We can hear sighs across the globe.

Amanda Seyfried has finally spilled the beans to Elle magazine. She looks gorgeous in the shoot, which is a fashionable interpretation of her Red Riding Hood avatar. Which basically means they made her pose with a lamb! But more importantly, when asked whether or not she was dating Ryan Phillippe, Amanda replied, “Um, yeah. I’ve been ‘seen’ with him”. Guess that puts rumors that Amanda and Ryan have split up to rest—and this is the April issue of the magazine, so we’re talking about the present!
The juice, fortunately, didn’t stop there. She finally opened up about the messiness of Dominic Cooper breaking up with his longtime girlfriend to be with her, revealing, “I was just kind of foolishly thinking that the two of them were done and Dom and I were involved. But we weren’t really as involved as I thought. So I got my heart broken pretty hard.” For some strange reason, we thought it was the other way around. Being with Dominic also made Amanda miss out on a romantic possibility that we would kill for. Apparently, Amanda had a thing with Alexander Skarsgard! Which came to naught as she explained, “We dated. He’s super funny, but I was too involved with Dom”. Considering the hotness of all three men mentioned, we’re sure she’s doing just fine.

How sad it must be for the two young lovahs to be apart. Justin Bieber‘s across the pond from Selena Gomez right now and he clearly wishes she was around. We know we have to say she’s his “alleged” girlfriend because they’ve never come out and said it outright. But actions do speak louder than words, like when they showed up together for the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Or when Bieber and Gomez were photographed sneaking kisses.
Having said that, we feel your pain Biebs! A lovelorn Justin tweeted Selena Sunday, writing, “I miss you.” Selena tweeted him right back with, “I miss all of y’all“. Young love, if anything, is quite succinct. But still very sweet, no? Hang in there, guys! You’ll be reunited in no time!

Wow, we had kind of forgotten about these two! But they’ve nudged their way back on to our radar. We couldn’t resist these photos of Jessica Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson looking a little worse for wear while exiting the Whiskey Mist night club in London around 2.30 in the morning.
They got into a cab while being swarmed by paparazzi which is why you’ll see Jess looking a tad confused in the photographs below. We get that Johnson’s being protective about his wife-to-be, but he needs to ease up on his football moves because he looks like he’s either tackling or strangling her in this photo!

You know we love us some Robsten news here! Last week’s details of the couple breaking it down on the dance floor at the Chateau Marmont made us squeal, so you can imagine our glee when Twilight‘s director Catherine Hardwicke opened up about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s epic romance. It’s an EPIC romance, okay — which is totally softly lit and sexy in real life too. And no one can tell us otherwise.
Since Catherine didn’t really have that much faith in him, RPattz had to get to L.A on his own for the original audition. She explained, “I looked at a couple pictures and was like, ‘I’m not sure’. He had been fired from his last job, he was unemployed, he was in debt”. Apparently, KStew came to Rob’s rescue. “Kristen was like, ‘It’s got to be Rob!’ She felt connected to him from the first moment. The electricity, or love at first sight, or whatever is is.” Hah. See it was destined. That attraction between the now-couple was so palpable that it actually had Hardwicke worried, so much so that she had to lay down the law with him. She says she told Rob, “You’ve got to realize that Kristen is 17 years old. She’s underage. You’ve got to focus, dude or you’re going to be arrested. I made him swear on a stack of Bibles.” Hardwicke—who’s directing Red Riding Hood now—also has a piece of that romance right at home. Her beachfront property’s bed is where Rob kissed Kristen for the first time. For the screen test that is, and she said, “That bed made Pattinson who he is right now.” Looks like art mirrors life in this case!

We know what you’re thinking: does he leave his hat on? No, sorry, that’s the second thing you think after “Whaaaaaaaaaaa?” Rumors that Susan Sarandon and Judah Friedlander hooked up on the 30 Rock set are no joke, however. A source claimed the two “hooked up” while Sarandon stopped by to film a cameo, though Friedlander says they are just friends. Both avid table tennis fans, Sarandon and Friedlander played a ping pong benefit this fall at Sarandon’s SPiN club. You guys, the man literally wears his heart on his…head. The second that trucker hat says “I Heart Macking It With Susan Sarandon,” then we’ll know.
While Friedlander looks like he has a very intense, intimate relationship with his right hand, Sarandon is rumored to be dating her business partner Jonathan Bircklin. When asked by the New York Post about his relationship with the Thelma & Louise star, Friedlander joked, “You know, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to only go out with Oscar winners.” Later, 30 Rock‘s Frank texted the reported to tell them, “I just can’t say either way what’s going on with me and Susan.” We guess when Judah claims to be the World Champion, the word “lover” is implied. Right? Sorry, terrible mental image.

What wouldn’t have we given to see this. In a completely unprecedented move, everyone’s favorite lovahs Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reportedly got down together in full public view over the weekend. Sources says that they “were dancing the whole time” at a weekend Pre-Oscar party at the Chateau Marmont. Doesn’t sound like the normally careful couple, considering how cagey they’ve been about their relationship. Another witness also revealed that Jay-Z had the couple revved as, “they went nuts for ‘Empire State of Mind’”. Can you imagine Rob breaking it down? Awkward, gawky, gorgeous Rob? We can totally see it, and while we think he would so pull some Dad moves, it’s so adorable!
The source also added that, “they definitely kissed a few times” which also totally just made us spontaneously combust. It’s like Twilight… only in real life. The night also had celebrities like Halle Berry, Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson dropping by but … ROBSTEN! Dancing! Making out! Whee! Their combined sparkliness has us giddy!

Glee’s Chord Overstreet and Taylor Swift attended an L.A. Kings hockey game at the Staples Center last night, leading to rumors that the two are dating. While the photographic evidence is slim (no P.D.A.s, but they certainly do look friendly), a source said they were flirting during the game. Hmm. Swift is not the type to hide her relationships—you’ll recall that even her brief dalliance with Jake Gyllenhaal was well-documented and publicized—so we’re excited by the prospect that she’s found someone closer to her own age. Swift is 21, and Overstreet just celebrated his 22nd birthday on Sunday. Check out a couple shots of the hockey nuts below.
