Timed for Father's Day, Britney Spears ex-hubby will be awarded "father of the year" by Las Vegas club Prive. K-Fed is hosting a party on June 13 and will be recognized during a presentation. As a father of four kiddies-two with Spears and two with his former babe Shar Jackson-we have to give props to him for unexpectedly stepping up and fulfilling his daddy duties during Britney's tough time. Yup, that's right, we're commending him on succeeding at fatherhood.
Hey, when Dina Lohan is saluted for being a Top Mom, Kevin looks like a freaking saint for his commitment to his kids! [People]

Sure, there has been Kate Moss backlash since back in the early 90s when she trademarked the heroin chic look for Calvin Klein. But ever since her romance began years ago with Pete Doherty (and all the drugs they shared) her career has gone straight down the tube. The latest news? The 34-year-old model lost her nearly $1 million deal with the luxuroius lingerie brand Agent Provocateur and has been replaced by 20-year-old blonde socialte Alice Dellall.Read More »from Is Kate Mossâ€™s career over?
"Everyone is stunned," says an insider. "Kate's shots [in their latest bridal lingerie campaign] were really well received, but bosses thought it was time to move on. They want a fresh new face and think they've found just the candidate in Alice." We'd like to say this was a one-time deal, but Kate was also replaced by Naomi Campbell for Yves Saint Laurent, and up-and-comer hot Agyness Deyn for Burberry.
Do you think this is the end of the road for Kate's modeling career? [Female First]

Many thought Nick Cannon was in over his head in trying to hook pop phenom Mariah Carey, but their marriage proved all us skeptics wrong. Not to be outdone is Cannon's ex-fiancee, model Selita Ebanks, the girl who wore the ultra similar pink diamond engagement ring. Saturday night at New York's Tenjune, Selita was trying to cozy up to Kanye West, who recently split with his fiancée.Read More »from Whoâ€™s Nick Cannon again? Ex-fiancÃ©e Selita Ebanks upgrades to Kanye West
Onlookers caught them trying to sneak out together late in the night after eating upstairs. "They were trying to be inconspicuous, but they were smiling and walking real close, and they hopped in a waiting car together laughing and took off." Sorry Nick, but we'd prefer Kanye (who's currently repping the tour of the year) any day. [NY Post]
Read More »from The Odd Couple: Cameron Diaz and Diddy?!
You know we were just wondering to ourselves why isn't Cameron Diaz dating anyone (no seriously, we were, it's embarrassing), when out pops an item claiming her and hip-hop mogul Diddy are sneaking around and potentially smooching on the DL. Here we give you the way too detailed play-by-play: In March they had dinner in L.A. but left separately through the kitchen and last month they looked overly friendly in New York's Sub-Mercer lounge where they disappeared to a private room for 20 minutes while a guard secured the door. Diaz also attended his Beverly Hills bash last month and wrapped her arms around him to offer congratulations for his star on the Walk of Fame.
The little detectives that we are, we found this pic of them (above) taken last Thursday at a Lakers game at the Staples Center, and then Friday well… they celebrated Prince's book launch at the musician's home where they laughed, held hands, Cam spoon-fed him her homemade bread pudding and they escaped to Prince's
Don't get us wrong, we aren't hating on her because she's beautiful. Megan Fox is a fox, for sure. Truth be told, we didn't make it to see Transformers, but we did read half a gajillion articles claiming she was mere moments from becoming the new It girl and we've yet to see her amount to anything other than the object of probably a lot of guys' fantasies.
In keeping up with her Maxim fanbase, Megan admits, "I have the libido of a teenage boy. I'd rather have sex all the time than leave the house." Wow, good to know. You have now earned your position as a Hollywood mainstay. Insert eyerolling emoticon. [The Superficial]

Make no mistake: just because heiresses Lydia Hearst and Paris Hilton are both rich girls who slightly resemble Barbie on the red carpet doesn't meat they are cut from the same stock. "I went to college," says Lydia. "I'm a supermodel. I have a legitimate career in journalism, television, fashion and designing. I'm a Hearst, not a Hilton!"
In sizing them up we'd have to agree there are some differences… and some similarities. They've both designed handbags, posed for many ad campaigns and magazine covers, tried their hand at writing (Lydia writes a monthly column for Page Six mag while Paris allegedly penned an autobiography), and even dated the same guy! Paris obviously has greater, um, camera exposure, and we don't mean just nudity-she has five seasons of The Simple Life under her belt while Lydia is just starting out with a small role on Gossip Girl. Lydia however did take a more traditional (read: educational) route and attend college. And let's be honest: as someone on the

Dr. Fredric J. Baur was a retired chemist and food storage technician for Pringles owner Proctor and Gamble back in 1970 when he patented the design of the now-infamous Pringles chip tube. Well, this is he had a strange request: that when he died his famous invention be used as the receptacle to hold his ashes. The request was recently honored as Dr. Baur passed away at 89 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Not to make a bad joke, but seriously: his family members better keep the tube away from the kitchen!
In tribute to Pringles we've researched and found amazing flavors in different countries we'd love to try: South America's Filet Mignon, Japan's Funky Soy Sauce, Canada's Cinnamon Sweet Potato, Australia's Light aromas Greek Style Cheese with a touch of Avocado Oil and the now defunct limited edition Mac n Cheese. Perhaps this obituary wasn't supposed to make us hungry, but we see no problem in supporting a terrific creation. Remember, once you pop, you can't stop! [Telegraph]

Once-rocker/actress Courtney Love is hard to take seriously these days, but we want to believe her in that way you feel bad for someone in a sci-fi movie where they were abducted by aliens and no one else is buying their story. Most recently it was millions of dollars stolen from her late husband Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's estate, and now allegedly, it's gotten personal: Courtney claims his ashes and a lock of Kurt's hair were stolen out of a pink teddy bear shaped bag. "I can't believe anyone would take Kurt's ashes from me," says Courtney. "I find it disgusting and right now I'm suicidal. If I don't get them back I don't know what I'll do."Read More »from Courtney Love claims Kurt Cobainâ€™s ashes were stolenâ€¦ out of a teddy bear bag?!
Courtney claims thousands of dollars of jewelry were also swiped from her home. But really, we can't get past the teddy bear bag. Why would you keep the ashes in there? And why or how would anyone know to steal them? We're hoping this is either a paranoid delusion on Courtney's part or they are recovered, because the thought of someone

Just as Sex and the City proved, one should never underestimate the spending power of women! This weekend's box office topper pulled in nearly $58 million-way higher than the $25-35 million industry estimates. As Sex and the City also taught us, sometimes nothing is more important than a lady's outfit. Nina Ricci designer Olivier Theyskens should have kept that in mind when he lied to star Sarah Jessica Parker claiming the dress she wore to the New York premiere of the film had never been worn or photographed before. In fact, Lindsay Lohan wore it at a commercial shoot and socialite Lauren (Davis) Santo Domingo wore it to the Met's Costume Institute Gala in May accompanied by the designer as her date. Busted! And you better believe SJP is peeved.
"Look, my affection for the dress hasn't changed, but what they did was so short-sighted," she said. "It's just unethical and disappointing that they would allow the dress to be worn again." Dang. We know Sarah Jessica is a fashion icon and
Read More »from Things we donâ€™t get: John Mayer
Call me ignorant, but I do not understand the fascination with John Mayer. I suppose he's somewhat attractive. I know that his smash hits like "Your Body is a Wonderland" and "Waiting on the World to Change" are supposed to get under my skin with their tender and positive messages. But there's something I can't get past. It's not that his voice irritates me, or that I think he's undeserving of his Grammy awards. It's not that the specific male pop singer/guitarist thing has never appealed to me (if a guy does pop, I'd prefer he was more straight up about it a la Justin Timberlake)-there's just something about John Mayer's overall person that annoys me beyond description. He seems arrogant, cocky and completely phony.
Between his narcissistic blogs about the "poignant statement" that is his new 80s-style feathered haircut, charging fans $10 for a photo op, and the mysterious gossip about his exceeding abilities in bed, it's more than I can stomach. His seemingly all-knowing and
