There's drama on the set of America's Next Top Model and insiders say it might be time for Tyra Banks to pack her bags and go home. Problem number 1: friction with photo shoot creative director Jay Manuel. "It's gotten so bad that Tyra and Jay aren't speaking," a source tells OK! "Tyra barely interacts with the contestants and only wants to show up on judging day." But Tyra seems so involved! She really cares about these girls! Oh please don't tell us this is a mere reality show illusion!
"She's really throwing all her weight behind her talk show," says an insider. Tyra's been busting her ass to get huge guests like Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton, hoping it'll land her Oprah-caliber power." She got a taste of playing with the big boys and now Top Model seems to detract from her big plans." Net result? Tyra wouldn't comment on the scoop, but we're already brainstorming an over-the-top supermodel replacement to host. We'll be saying a prayer for Naomi Campbell's takeover every night.

Jeff Vespa/Getty ImagesChristina Aguilera may not be as dirrty as she once was, but being a wife and new mom hasn't tamed this diva. In fact, the singer and hubby Jordan Bratman have pissed off their Beverly Hills neighbors by getting rowdy, skinny dipping and hooking up out by the pool area late into the evening (after 2-month-old son Max is tucked in).Read More »from Christina Aguilera's skinny dipping is upsetting the neighbors
"They don't just splash around - they laugh, scream, swear and make sexy noises," a source tells Star. "We're happy that they're happy, but we wish they'd keep it down a bit. There are a lot of old people who live around here, and they don't like noise after the dinner hour." Upon further investigation, perhaps these neighbors should quit yapping. You know who lived in this $11.5 million mansion before The Aguileras? The Osbournes! As in the very home where Sharon O. chucked a ham at the people living next door and had the cops show up every five minutes.
Can it guys-get some loving of your own and stop hating. [Star]

Rob Loud/Getty ImagesRead More »from Dr Pepper proves its love for Axl Rose; America holds its breath for a can of free soda
We all have an extreme fondness for "Paradise City," "Welcome to the Jungle," and of course the nine-minutes-of-awesome-rock-ballad that is "November Rain," but we can't say the same for the Guns N' Roses frontman's solo career.
Axl Rose has been working on an album called Chinese Democracy for the past 10 years. Ten years! Who knew? Well, at least one really big fan at Dr Pepper did, because the company announced that everyone in America (sans estranged bandmates Slash and Buckethead) will get a free can of the delicious carbonated concoction if Axl finally drops his album in 2008.
In response to the company's support, Axl himself wrote a response via the Guns N' Roses web site:
"We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr Pepper with our album Chinese Democracy, as for us, this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others, we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead's performances

Mark Mainz/Getty imagesRead More »from Mary-Kate attempts to slum it up at downtown hipster bar
New York is a city socially divided by neighborhoods. Uptown, you have the socialites, rich kids (think Gossip Girl), and wealthy men; while downtown is inhabited by 20-something dirty-looking hipsters, often times in too tight jeans and ridiculous hair cuts. In areas like the Lower East Side, it's cooler to ride up to a bar on a bicycle, rather than a town car, but that didn't stop Mary-Kate Olsen and crew from rolling up to hipster hangout, Sweet Paradise, on Sunday night via two black Escalades.
Forget hotspots like Beatrice Inn and Marquee! At 2 a.m. one stunned patron outside the bar said: "An Olsen just went in there." When asked which twin was slumming it up inside, the witness said, "I think it was the fat one." (Um. Whatever that means, jerk.)
Valiant effort, MK. Perhaps next time leave your $5000 designer handbag at home for a less assuming look. A canvas tote would've sufficed. [NY Post]

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are on an unstoppable mission to enlarge their family, but this time it's not just by adopting babies. Researchers at the New England Historic Genealogical Society have discovered that presidential nominee Barack Obama is distant cousins with Brad Pitt, while Hillary Clinton, is related not only to Angelina, but also Madonna, Alanis Morissette and Celine Dion. The catch? Brad and Barack are ninth cousins while Angie and Hil are ninth cousins twice removed.
Seriously, when you go that deep in your ancestry, couldn't you really be related to anybody?
And now for the real question: who will Jennifer Aniston be voting for? [E!]

Valerie Macon/Getty ImagesApparently heiress-slash-marketing genius Paris Hilton is everyone's favorite ditz overseas as well. Ms. Hilton had an international Jessica Simpson "chicken or fish" moment while on tour in Africa with boyfriend du jour Benji Madden and his band Good Charlotte. It must suck to play second fiddle for a moment, but Paris made sure to grab some press of her own.Read More »from Paris reminds us she's still a dumb blonde. We feel validated.
"I love Africa in general - South Africa and West Africa, they are both great countries," said Paris. Ouch, looks like someone must have been filing her nails during geography class-last we checked West Africa wasn't a country, but rather a three billion square mile area consisting of 16 countries. Oh, but who even noticed! She was too busy posing in her white bikini. Next up on the tour: Germany, Turkey and Hungary. We're sure she won't know where these places are, but it's all good as long as they have mirrors there. [NY Daily News]
Stephen Shugerman/Getty ImagesRocker and Kurt Cobain widow Courtney Love is tired of being the butt of jokes and is ready for a more welcoming, compassionate community-namely across the pond. "I am fed up with Los Angeles. It's dirty and full of crazy people. I want a complete lifestyle change," says Love.Read More »from Courtney Love says England or bust!
Hmm… we wonder if when making this statement she had a momentary brain fart and forgot about Kate Moss, Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse, to name a few. Courtney seeks greener pastures, not just for he own well-being, but for 15-year-old daughter, Frances Bean.
"Hollywood is not a healthy place for a teenager to grow up. There are too many bad influences." But not so fast, Ms. Responsibility! We've seen your MySpace blog rants. Is it possible you've gone completely soft on us? "English men are more fun."
Whew, that's better. [Defamer]
Astrid Stawiarz/Getty ImagesThis dude just can't stay out of trouble. Two weeks ago Kid Rock (AKA Robert Ritchie) made a charity appearance at a Georgia Waffle House to apologize for a post-concert scuffle back in October. Well, this past Friday the Kid was at it again, and consequently sued for battery after three men approached him for his autograph outside of L.A. hotspot Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel. The suit states that: "Kid Rock and members of the Boo-Yaa Tribe assaulted and battered all three plaintiffs," and Michael Medlin, Carlos Bonilla and Jose Perez were "left on the ground seriously injured as Kid Rock and his entourage drove off."Read More »from Kid rocks a little too hard, again
Rock and crew, along with the Hotel, were hit with charges of negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and malice. Who knows what really went down, but it seems like the plaintiffs, who are seeking at least $15 million in damages, are milking this case for all it's worth. Can't we all just get along!? [E!]
Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesRadio personality Howard Stern is great at getting dirt out of just about anyone, so when actor Ryan Phillippe had sang nothing but praises on ex-wife Reese Witherspoon and new man Jake Gyllenhaal, we realized he was a real class act. "He's a good dude," Phillippe said on Thursday's show. "I love her and I want her to be happy, and it seems like she is." Aww. Perhaps this is in part to their 2007 divorce being "mutual."Read More »from Ryan Phillippe is capable of a mature breakup
"Leading up to it, we had been spending so much time apart," he explained. "That's a huge part of it. There are so many obstacles." The rest of his interview, Phillippe denied hookups with Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson, but that doesn't keep the ladies off him. "I know Lindsay Lohan wanted you," said Stern. "Yeah," he responded. Ooh, we'd like to know more about that one.
A slightly modest Phillippe admit that Angelina Jolie is "probably" the hottest actress he's been forced to get naked with on camera. "Is she very sexual?" Stern asked. "I would think so, yeah,"
