Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore‘s marriage has always been scrutinized, because apparently it’s hard to believe that a celebrity couple with a 15-year age gap can be successful. This month has seen a sudden burst of infidelity rumors adding fuel to that fire, and time will tell how the relationship weathers such allegations. What was at first an apparent defamation lawsuit against Star Magazine has now become major tabloid fodder and it’s even this week’s People magazine cover. After Star published reports that Kutcher had an affair, Kutcher Tweeted “Star magazine you don’t get to stand behind ‘freedom of the press’ when you are writing fiction. I think Star magazine calling me a ‘cheater’ qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees.” That’s not stopping media outlets from debating the possibility that he’s a cheater though.
Brittney Jones, the 21-year-old who alleged she and Kutcher hooked up, claims she and Kutcher met in July while at the Lucky Strikes bowling alley in L.A. and says Kutcher slipped her his number, which led to couch sex at Kutcher and Moore’s home. “It was tender and nice, not some random sex act,” Jones said of their random sex act. What’s also curious (but to be expected in 2010, gross though it may be), is how Jones has already hired a manager and publicist and admits to being “obsessed” with Kutcher. We assume so she can take the Montana Fishburne approach to furthering her career, so forgive us for thinking that’s a little shady.
Meanwhile, People magazine reports this week that the couple is more solid than ever and appear ready to fight any claims of infidelity. A source on the set of Demi’s new movie claims “She gushes over Ashton,” while another says “they seemed super committed.” To boot, they are preparing to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on Friday, so the allegations could put a damper on things. Or at least a celebratory trip to the bowling alley.
Personally we’re choosing not to believe that Ashton strayed – the couple live their lives so publicly that we don’t think he would be crazy enough to cheat with a random girl in rented shoes. Not when you’ve got a member of the Brat Pack waiting for you at home.
Divorce looks pretty good on Kate Winslet. The actress has been seen out lately with her new man, British model Louis Dowler, and last night they were looking especially adorable at a Vanity Fair-sponsored party for photographer Mario Testino in Madrid. Seeing Winslet and Dowler holding hands and being so affectionate brightens our day in a weird way. It’s nice to see people enjoying each other’s company that much.
Winslet has been dealing with her divorce in the best ways possible – vacationing in Mexico and dating a super-hot model. If her Revolutionary Road character could see her real life self, she’d probably weep with joy.

Only a month out of rehab and Lindsay Lohan already has a baby-stroller-proof Maserati, a hit Mexploitation movie in theaters and, according to sources, one new old girlfriend. According to a source, former flames Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are back together and closer than a Scram anklet on a freckled leg. Says a friend of Lohan, “Lindsay and Sam started speaking as soon as Lindsay got out of rehab. They text constantly. It turned into something more, and they’ve secretly hooked up.” Oh, chicas, we don’t know about this. It sounds like you are both playing with fire(crotch).
La Lohan and Sam were always our favorite couple that weigh 130lbs combined, and it was beyond sweet when Ronson visited Lohan in jail. However, given the epic history of drink-hurling, punch-throwing and general dramatics their relationship produced, we have to politely suggest these two move on. But the source claims, “Lindsay’s crazy past behavior was the reason Sam ended things. But if Lindsay continues to do well, then it will be officially back on between them. At the end of the day, Sam still loves her.” One thing’s for sure: if these ladies start bumping uglies again for real, it’ll be all over Twitter the millisecond it happens. [Photo: Getty Images]
Lest you think we were just pulling your leg when we mentioned that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were back together, we’d like to offer up proof in the form of some serious making out in Miley’s car. At first we thought there’s no way they’re back on, and the fact that Miley was photographed grabbing a coffee with Hemsworth yesterday just shows that clearly they are just being mature adults, hanging out, maybe returning some shirts, an old stereo, whatever normal, broken-up people do to settle up. But oh, no. Unless Liam borrowed one of Miley’s fillings, that’s definitely not what this was.

Joe Jonas, he of the brows and the bros, has apparently tossed his purity ring aside to get, uh, closer to Ashley Greene, his rumored girlfriend and the world’s prettiest mediocre actress. Ashley and Joe have been spotted flirting and kissing in public, and a source (aka: Nick Jonas) told Life & Style, “When they’re not traveling, they’re basically living together.”
Woah, living in sin so soon? That can only mean one thing – Joe’s ready to bone! He’s apparently been spotted without his purity ring, which makes us wonder – has he finally offered up his virginity to his latest special lady? If this is the case, do Demi Lovato and Camilla Belle‘s vaginas feel dissed or totally relieved? Ah, the things we wonder at 5:15 PM.

Poor lil’ Jesse James. While girlfriend Kat Von D looks thrilled to be hanging off of his inked arm, he looks, how should we put this, a little bummed about banging a bunch of trashy ladies behind A-List ex Sandra Bullock‘s back and losing the glamorous life they once shared. Oops! Lesson learned dude – a little poon goes a long way…in ruining your life.
Lucky for Jesse, Kat is straight obsessed with his Vanilla Gorilla routine. She’s even gone as far as to tell People magazine she’s “in love” with the guy, because what’s celebrity romance without diarrhea of the mouth? Let’s review her recent revelations, eh?
- “Jesse is only my ninth boyfriend. I don’t hang out with anybody unless I am in love.”
- On Jesse being the one: “I believe he is, so yeah.”
- Revealing when they first really connected (aside from in bed): “Was it when we were playing Scrabble? I don’t remember. But it was something like that – when we both realized how nerdy we were.”
Jesse was less chatty when elaborating on the affair. When asked if he was happy, he simply replied, “yes.” As for what he likes about Kat? “Everything.” What’s wrong guy? Ex-wife got your tongue?
We irrationally love Drew Barrymore – she’s battled demons, dated rock stars and always has a hairstyle we covet. Sure, she’s no Meryl Streep but she always makes fun movies, and she produced Donnie Darko so we have some respect. We just want her to be happy, and she always looks thrilled whenever she’s with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Long. The two walked the red carpet for their new flick, Going The Distance and oh, how our hearts were warmed to see them looking cozy and adorable together. Is it too much to ask that these kids make it work? (If only so we can use our new nickname for them: BarryMacGuy.)
They were joined by Ã‚Â their co-stars Christina Applegate, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis at Grauman’s Chinese Theater last night for the premiere of the film, check out our gallery of all the stars below.
You know the paparazzi who stalk Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson? Someone should send them Ashley Greene‘s way. The girl is desperate for someone to look at her, as she made clear yesterday while watching her maybe-boyfriend Joe Jonas play in some charity baseball game.
Just the fact that she’s trying to tempt us with a maybe-boyfriend is a sure sign that Ash is courting the cameras. OMG are they or aren’t they?!?! Uh, we don’t give a sh*t, either way. Caressing Joe Jonas’ face would have gone a long way in 2007, but these days, no one really cares about who he and his giant eyebrows are going to third base with.
The thing is, Ashley is likable without having to try so hard. She obviously scores an A on the Hotness Test and comes across as a sweet, relaxed, flip flops n’ jeans type of gal. She’s not the worst actor in Twilight – which is saying a lot – and she’s a football fan, which is the number one requirement for getting generic American men to like you.
We’ve all seen how well the sexy tomboy routine has done for Cameron Diaz, so why doesn’t Ashley slip on one of the 46 pairs of flip flops you know she has in her closet and ditch the Joe Bro for some surfer brah? We promise it’s a way better move than trying to mirror what Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner had: you know, a relationship dreamed up in a PR office somewhere off of Sunset.

Is there some study that shows tattoo ink slowly dissolves your brain’s logic centers? Because if not, we think there is a lot of money to be made studying why in the name of all that is holy LA Ink’s Kat Von D would be eating dinner with terrible husband and vanilla gorilla Jesse James.Ã‚Â Seen together in at the Palms Casino Resort’s N9NE in Las Vegas, the two were “spotted holding hands. They continued holding hands as they left dinner and headed to a black Mercedes that James was driving.”
Nooooooooooooooooo! Girl, get that hand to an exorcist, stat! We aren’t trying to say that men who cheat (so, so terribly much) can’t later turn out to be decent, loyal partners. Plenty of men have strayed only to become good husbands likeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.umÃ¢â‚¬Â¦. what’s his name, you knowÃ¢â‚¬Â¦and, uh, the guy with the hat.
Sure, Kat Von D might not have a stellar record when it comes to boyfriends; her most famous flings have been with Nikki Six and Steve-O, not exactly two pillars of society. As for Jesse James though, let’s just say, dating someone who’s slept with a white supremacist? That’s a deal breaker, ladies. Which is why we would rather issue a warning to Kat now rather than an “I told you so” later: Girlfriend, you do not want be accepting your Oscar for Best Tramp Stamp or whatever they give out in the tattoo community, only to find out your man is sneaking around your back with some plain-skinned, no-make-up-wearing kindergarten teacher or something. Because if there’s anything Jesse James loves more than cheating, it’s mixing it up. But mostly just cheating.

This is one of our favorite shots of all time. In it, Jude Law and Sienna Miller are blissfully necking, while Mr. Speedopants behind them just chills out contemplating his next move, and no one seems to be paying attention to anyone else. People certainly put up with a lot just to go on a fancy trip with some celebrities, huh? “Sure, I’ll tolerate my front row seat to your PDA’s, your self-obsession, your bratty, neglected kids – does that come with yacht rides, white-sand beaches and five-star service?” Such is the question asked by many a celebrity third wheel. Check out all the guys who’ve managed to score pretty sweet vacations and don’t seem to care that they’re the odd man out.
