Kim Kardashian, 30, and model Gabriel Aubry, 34, had a fast romance – a Lakers game, quiet nights at home and bonding over family – but the two have already gone their separate ways, PEOPLE confirms.
"They still talk," says a source close to the duo. "They were getting to know each other, but realized they might be better off just being friendly."
Kardashian, who has made no secret of her fun and flirty outlook and single status, was ready to move on and get back into the dating game.
In fact, she's been seeing New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries "for a while now," says the source of Kardashian and the 25-year-old forward. "Kim was dating, seeing a few guys and Gabriel and Kris were both of the guys. She is single after all!"
So what is it about the basketball star that Kardashian likes? "They get along so well," says another source. "They've been taking it slow but they have so much fun together."
The pair were spotted kissing and holding hands in Hoboken, New Jersey over the weekend.
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have remained tight-lipped about their impending nuptials, but many expect them to tie the knot at the Beverly Hills mansion of Nicole’s dad Lionel Richie. As anticipation of their big day hits a frenzied pitch thanks to rumors of an early December ceremony, Radar Online noticed a lot of party preparing action at Lionel’s house on Tuesday!
There were two party rental trucks spotted going to and from the residence as a body guard and one cop from the Beverly Hills police department looked on. One thing guests at the shindig can expect: a lot of dancing.
“A stage is being built over the pool in the backyard so the guests will have more space to dance,” a source told Radar Online exclusively.
“It's kind of cool because people will be dancing on top of the water."
Another source added that the party seemed to be mostly outdoors with a lot of white patio-like furniture with white marble table tops. Some furniture will be indoors as well.
While many details of the wedding remain under wraps, some guests surely on the list are Samantha Ronson, Richie’s pal Masha Gordon, Richie’s hair dresser Andy Lecompte, and Christina Aguilera.
Khloe Kardashian has joined the public outcry against ramped-up, touchy-feely security screenings at airports around the country.
"They basically are just raping you in public," Kardashian, 26, complained Monday on Lopez Tonight.
"I got asked the other day, do you want to go for a screening or get padded down," the reality star said. "I don't want that X-Ray to see everything, honey!"
But the pat-down didn't go so well.
"The people are so aggressive! It's like, 'Chill out, you didn't find anything on me yet, calm down,'" she said. "They say, 'OK, I'm going to be patting you down and I'm going to be touching the crease of your ass.' That is so inappropriate!"
Many non-celebs object to those pat-downs, too. Last month, John Tyner became a viral video star when he videotaped his tense encounter with TSA agents in a San Diego airport. Tyner's now-famous outcry to an agent performing a pat-down: "If you touch my junk, I will have you arrested."
She’s one of the biggest reality stars in showbiz, and Whitney Port is sizzling in the January 2011 issue of Maxim magazine.
The “City” chick shows off her sexy side in an uber-hot photo spread, donning lingerie and posing in a series of sultry shots.
In the accompanying interview, Whitney explains that while she’s a total babe now, it wasn’t always like that.
“I was the ugly duckling as a baby and a toddler. As I got a little older- granted, I did not look so hot with braces- I wasn’t like horribly unfortunate looking. And I wasn’t tall in high school which is weird. I didn’t get this tall until college. I had a really late growth spurt, and now I’m 5’10””
With her southern charm and girl-next-door appeal, it’s hard to believe that Jessica Simpson is in fact a fashion powerhouse, sitting at the helm of a nearly $1 billion empire.
But with retail sales of her successful lifestyle brand totaling $750 million this year, that is precisely what her line of shoes, accessories, denim, swimwear, watches and fragrances have turned the newly-engaged star into, reports WWD. And her secret, according to Vince Camuto, founder and CEO of Camuto Group, the main licensee for Simpson-branded merchandise, is her approachability.
“People like her,” he tells WWD. “People look at her as a style icon.” So much so that Jess is broadening her brand even further, launching a contemporary sportswear line of stylish separates including jackets, woven and knit bottoms, as well as tops and dresses, all priced from $39 to $129.
“This new sportswear line reflects my evolving style, which combines comfort, femininity and flirty fun,” Jessica said in a statement. The new collection will be available at more than 650 specialty and department stores throughout the U.S. and Canada starting in the fall of 2011.
On Monday, the reality star, plus other celebs like Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Kim's sister Khloe and more, were able to Tweet once more after raising $1 million for Keep a Child Alive, which provides HIV/AIDS relief in Africa and India.
"I am back from the dead!" Kardashian, 30, Tweeted. She and her fellow stars had staged "Digital Deaths" on Dec. 1 -- Kim and others posed in coffins -- to raise awareness and funds for the effort. "Thank you all so much for your donations and contributions! I have missed u all so much!!!"
But the New York Post's Page Six reports that celebs staging "Digital Deaths" ultimately had to rely on one deep-pocketed billionaire -- not their fans -- to reach the $1 million goal. The paper reports that pharmaceutical tycoon Stewart Rahr donated $500,000 to the campaign after other donations had seriously stalled.
"It's the worst mismanagement of star power I've ever seen in my life," a source close to the program told Page Six.
Kids born around the holidays sometimes feel short-changed in the gift department. But it sounds like Bronx Mowgli Wentz doesn't need to worry.
The son of Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz turned 2 on Nov. 20, but Ashlee says he'll still have a nice Christmas – though they'll have to branch out in terms of presents.
"He just had his birthday, and he got a lot of gifts," the pop singer, 26, told PEOPLE on Monday at an Alice & Olivia toy drive in West Hollywood. "He'll still have a great Christmas, and he's really into Thomas the Train, but we have enough Thomas, so we do not need that this year!"
As Bronx gets older and more aware, his parents are beginning to develop family routines around the holidays. "For my husband and I, it's nice to start those traditions now," Ashlee says. "What we're doing with the tree, what we did over Thanksgiving ... we actually had an amazing Thanksgiving with Peter's family."
Looking to the future, those traditions will also include sister Jessica Simpson's future husband, Eric Johnson. Their relationship, says Ashlee, is as festive as anything this season.
"She is genuinely very, very happy, and you go to their house and it's warm and cozy, and it's a good feeling," she says. "And he's just a good guy."
And if Eric and Jessica happen to add to the family in the next few years, so much the better. "Of course it would be wonderful if it happened," says Ashlee. "We were actually over there yesterday, and Jessica is a wonderful godmother, and aunt, so I know she would be a wonderful mother."
Lindsay Lohan will be spending the upcoming Christmas holiday in Southern California, Radar Online has learned exclusively, though it's still unclear who she'll be surrounded by.
Her mother Dina “wants Lindsay to go home to Long Island for Christmas, [but] that won't be happening," a source with knowledge of the situation told us. "Judge Elden Fox was very clear with his order that he wanted her to stay in rehab until after New Year's.”
Our source said the 24-year-old Mean Girls star has excelled in her sober living facility, even earning passes to leave the sober house for shopping excursions and visits to her Los Angeles home.
Still, "Lindsay won't be allowed to leave the state of California for Christmas, period," according to our source. "It was never a consideration for Thanksgiving and it won't be for Christmas. Dina wants her home, but Michael is supporting whatever Lindsay's treatment team is recommending."
The holidays can be a cause for concern, according to our source, with "all of the angst, forced familial time and dealing with recovery. Mix in parents that don't get along and Lindsay is going to be tested -- and that isn't a bad thing.”
Lindsay could earn a pass to spend Christmas Eve or Christmas Day out of the sober living facility if she gets the OK from her treatment team, according to our source.
The actress has impressed her doctors and others by focusing her efforts toward helping the less fortunate, our source said, as she "recognizes how blessed she is to be given this amazing opportunity to get and stay sober."
