The Greatest Love of All Is Buying Someone's Underwear

Love Whitney Houston? Then head to Livingston, New Jersey, next week, when an auction of Whitney memorabilia — undergarments and all — will take place. Tommy Lee and Kid Rock might come to blows now that Tommy is hooking up with Pamela Anderson. (They almost did on New Year's Eve, but Kid showed up at the wrong room.) Bob Dylan would do well not to sue Harvey Weinstein over Factory Girl, as Dylan was threatening, now that the Weinstein Co. has acquired the rights to the singer's biopic. If you spent $250 to hang out at Stereo on New Year's Eve, you probably felt pretty dumb when you were kicked out of the club to make room for John Mayer and Jessica Simpson. (Simpson also took a little spill earlier in the evening, but so did her ex-boyfriend's current squeeze, Vanessa Minnillo.) Celebrity "starvicist" (the Post's nickname, not ours) Rachel Zoe is, fittingly, hawking a new, "slimmer" Samsung cell phone. (However, it's our scoop, not the Post's.) Producer Scott Storch gave Lindsay Lohan $1 million in diamond jewelry, though some say "he just wants to do her music." Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz call it quits, but J-Timbs already has another lady on the go. Jimmy Fallon was a major dud as host of Eliot Spitzer's inaugural concert. Mira Sorvino partied at a club with her 2-year-old and 6-month-old on New Year's Eve. Denzel Washington turned down a love scene with Julia Roberts in The Pelican Brief out of loyalty to his female black fans. Coming soon to a theater (or, more likely, DVD, or YouTube) near you: Brian De Palma's first-ever film, which had a fairly limited release (one theater!) in 1968. The Giulianis, James Wood, and Jessica Alba all vacationed at the same Bahamas resort. Is Britney Spears in danger of being dropped by Jive Records? Cindy Adams thinks that's why she "fainted" in Vegas. Billy Joel has recently recorded his first song since 1993's "River of Dreams."
