19Listen Up, Ashlee Simpson: If You Don’t Wear a Ring on Your Ring Finger Around Photographers, You Won’t Have to Interrupt Your Busy Schedule of Banging Pete Wentz and Snorting Cocaine to Deny Engagement Rumors

Nine perfectly good other fingers.

And Ashlee Simpson has to wear a crappy-ass ring on her left ring finger.

“Ashlee is not engaged,” says her rep.

“It’s been “9 ½ years since I’ve had a drink or taken drugs . . . but I’m still a drug addict.”

8Yup, Jessica Simpson’s Recording a Country Album


After her film career crashed and burned (well, let’s be honest, it crashed and burned years ago, but she’s been hanging around the crash site, sifting through the rubble and looking for survivors), Jessica’s got a new plan: she’s recording a country album.

She’s been talking about doing it for awhile, but now she’s actually in a Nashville recording studio, laying down tracks.

“I am a country girl,” she says. “I grew up in Texas, and country music was what I listened to. I always wanted to wait until the time was right.”

Now is apparently the right time, as all other options have been ruled out. Seriously, it’s record a country album or go work at Walmart. Her options are a tad limited at this point.

For what it’s worth, Jess, good luck.

6Britney’s Spent NYE With Her Kids and That Paparazzi Dude She’s Banging


Britney reportedly spent NYE with her two sons — and their court-appointed monitor — at a private beach-front residence near Dana Point in the OC, according to OK! magazine. Sources say she had a quiet night, and, if she passed out, at least she didn’t do it in public, like last NYE.

Can you imagine being that court-appointed monitor? Your friends are all like, “Dude, we’re so fucking hungover today. We can’t even get out of bed. Josh just puked into his hat. Fuck, man. So, what’d you do last night?” and then you’re all like, “Um, I stayed sober and made sure Britney Spears didn’t kill her young children,” and then they’re all like, “Oh, great. So could you come over and bring us McDonalds and Tylenol?”

Also there: Adnan Ghalib, the paparazzo Britney’s been banging lately, who’s clearly becoming more than a boy-toy. This Britney-dates-a-pap story is so weird. I can’t even really handle it. Like, if she started dating Sean Connery, I could handle it. If she started dating Lindsay Lohan’s little brother, I still think I could handle it. But a paparazzi? It makes my little evil head explode.

10Blind Item!

WHICH 40ish actress has finally gotten pregnant for the first time? Her rep is denying it because she’s only a month into it, and has suffered miscarriages in the past. Said our source: “Watch for her to get bangs and start wearing hats to hide her sagging face because you can’t be on Botox when you are pregnant”

Ummmm … how can you be pregnant for the first time and have suffered miscarriages in the past? Someone over at Page Six is still a little hungover. Still … any thoughts on who this magical creature could be?

11Kim Kardashian Engaged?

InTouch is reporting that Kim Kardashian is engaged to her football player boyfriend, Reggie Bush.

The pair were together in Miami on Dec. 31, where Kim hosted Mansion’s Tanqueray and Ciroc New Year’s Bash in South Beach with Reggie. She wasn’t sporting a ring, but perhaps Kim’s just learned to keep her private life private.

I have to admit, ever since I’ve started watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I really like Kim. (Yes, there, I admitted it — I watch that show and I fucking like it goddammit!) I don’t know what I expected her to be like, but she certainly comes off way better on her show than Paris ever did on The Simple Life. She just seems really down-to-earth, sensible, and sweet, and I wish her the best with this relationship.
