Is Ashlee Simpson Dating Someone New?

Ashlee Simpson is rumored to be getting over the end of her marriage with a new guy. She’s supposedly been seen “acting rather affectionately” with musician Craig Owens, according to E! News.

Craig is said to be a friend of Pete Wentz’s. Ouch.

Do you think it’s too soon? I don’t feel like I know enough to make a judgment, but I’m sure some of you have opinions ;).

Celebrity Breakups: Ashley Olsen and Justin Bartha, Audrina Patridge and Corey Bohan

Well it was a big day for celebrity breakups! Us Magazine is reporting that both Ashley Olsen and Audrina Patridge are back on the market after breaking up with their respective boyfriends.

Ashley had been dating Hangover star Justin Bartha for two years, but according to a friend of the couple, “It’s over.”

That’s too bad – they were a really cute couple together!

In not so surprising news Audrina Patridge called it off with her Australian BMX racing boyfriend Corey Bohan over the weekend. The former Hills star is busy filming her new reality show for VH1 and sources tell Us that she might have already replaced Bohan when she met polo player Nic Roldan at 251 The Club;

“Major sparks flew between Audrina and Nic Saturday night, and the entire evening they couldn’t stop laughing and touching each other. Audrina seemed to be having the time of her life, dancing and mingling with guests, but you could tell she was especially focused on Nic.”

And it didn’t end there, apparently they met up the next day and;

“He gave her a private polo lesson at the International Polo Club in Wellington.”

Ah young love!

Lady Gaga Opens Up About Drugs And Traumatic Experiences

Lady Gaga has made no secret of the fact that she’s used drugs but the singer has opened up to author Neil Strauss in his new book ‘Everyone Loves You When You Are Dead’ and reveals that she still worries about how much she used to do;

“Sometimes it freaks me out – or I should say it petrifies me – when I think about laying in my apartment in New York with bed bugs and roaches on the floor and mirrors with cocaine everywhere, and no will or interest in doing anything but making music and getting high.

“I’ve had such obstacles with drugs and rejection and people not believing in me. It’s been a very long and continuous road that I love, but it’s hard to just chalk it up to myself. I have to believe there’s something greater than myself.”

Strauss also revealed to that he asked Gaga if she had been through a traumatic experience in her youth;

“I asked her if she’d been through a traumatic experience when she was younger and she said yes, that it was when she was in New York and it was so terrible that she’d blocked it out.

“She said it was so horrible that she didn’t want it in her younger fans’ heads. I think she felt that if she opened up about herself, then it would define her and that’s all anyone would ask about.”

Huh, I find it odd that she’s worried about putting that in her younger fans’ heads but she’ll openly talk about her ‘drunk diet’ , losing her virginity and smoking marijuana. Must be a pretty traumatic experience!

Fact Or Fiction – Is Victoria Beckham Having A Girl?!

Here we go again – you knew as soon as you heard that Victoria Beckham was pregnant again that the internet would be abuzz with rumors that she’s finally having a girl. Of course now is not different, with a source claiming that the shower that Eva Longoria is planning is pink-themed;

 “They know the sex of their baby, which is helpful for Eva – she plans to fill the suite with balloons, and rumour has it that they will be pink, not blue.”

Of course both David and Victoria have denied knowing the gender of their unborn baby with Victoria saying;

“I can go on the record and say, contrary to rumours; I do not know the sex of my baby. We feel so lucky and so blessed.

“We know what to do with a boy. The kids are excited about having a little brother to teach how to play soccer… But, if it’s a girl, we’d be over the moon as well.”

David spoke during a visit to the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital and said his wife it doing great with her pregnancy;

“She’s great, she’s very healthy. She’s feeling good. She’s in London at the moment working.

“We’re very excited. It’s an exciting time for the family.”

I’m sure that they would love to have a baby girl, but also pretty sure that if they have a boy they will be just as happy. I’d just like to see her actually showing! How thin can one pregnant girl be?!

Fact Or Fiction: Mel Gibson Negotiates Plea Bargain With DA

Lindsay Lohan may not be interested in a plea bargain, but she may have accepted if she was in Mel Gibson’s shoes: he’s reportedly negotiated a plea bargain with the District Attorney (who was preparing to charge him with spousal abuse) that includes NO jail time.

Our sources say Mel will appear in court Friday and will plead no contest to simple battery — a lesser charge than corporal injury on a spouse.

Do you believe this?

If you do believe this, does it seem fair?

Store Auctioning Off Necklace Lindsay Lohan Allegedly Stole

The prosecutors in Lindsay Lohan’s felony theft case are probably about to go into cardiac arrest: the jewelry store has not only sold the surveillance video– now they are auctioning off the necklace itself!

A rep for the Kamofie and Co. jewelry store announced, “We have decided to sell the diamond necklace through auction, and give the proceeds to charity.”

As for the specific charity — the rep states, “We invite the public to make suggestions as to the most appropriate charity to receive the benefit of the sale’s proceeds.”

According to the rep, the auction will not take place until AFTER the criminal case is resolved “by plea bargain, or trial or some other means.”

The LAPD currently has the necklace. WHY make this announcement now? It’s like they want to strip away all their credibility.

Yet I keep thinking… does it matter? If Lindsay walked out of the store wearing the necklace without paying, does any of this other stuff matter, legally? SMH.

Chris Brown Is DONE Apologizing

Chris Brown sat down for an interview with Page Six magazine, and he made one thing clear: he is done apologizing for assaulting Rihanna in 2009.

“People are always gonna talk. But I’m in a positive place. I consider myself a grown-ass man. And at the end of the day, if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I’m gonna look like a damn fool.”

Really? Do you think his apologies make him look like a fool? Chris also talked about who stood by him- and admitted that not everyone did.

“A handful of people stuck by me,” Chris says, referring to fellow artists such as Pitbull and Pharrell Williams of N.E.R.D. “But when [most] people see certain things happen to somebody, they usually turn away. They don’t want to get involved with it because they don’t want their name attached to anything negative. Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that. But you can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”

“People kind of get clouded, and then when they get up to the top, they kind of lose a bit of themselves and they’re not as humble. So knowing how it can be taken away and given back and taken away again, it kind of just taught me to be focused.”

Well, that is true: losing something makes you appreciate it that much more. Chris also talked about his new album, ‘F.A.M.E.’ (which stand for Forgiving All of My Enemies):

“Fame is what everybody seeks. I get an adrenaline rush from it. But fame is basically love and hate all in one. Without bad there is no good, without good there is no bad. Everybody who dissed me now wants to say ‘Hey.’ They wanna get on the record. They wanna let me back in the door. The last two years, everybody dissed me. But my fans were so dedicated. The way I look at it is, you can’t walk around mad, because then you just prove everybody right that you’re an angry person. So ‘F.A.M.E.’ means ‘Forgiving All My Enemies,’ and also ‘Fans Are My Everything.’ I’m dedicating it to my fans.”

You can read Chris’ entire interview in the Thursday, March 10 issue of ‘Page Six Magazine,’ which is available free inside the New York Post and can be read online here.
