Twilight’s Ashley Greene, winner of the Fresh Face Female award at Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards, has been flaunting a little more than her face. Nude photos of the star sprouted up on the Internet on Monday. After a period of confusing sightings, Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are an item again, and the pair celebrated Ronson’s birthday over the weekend at the Virgins’ Lollapalooza concert in Chicago and dinner with LiLo’s little sister. We give it a week. (Oh, and LiLo’s blonde again, too.) Jessica Simpson was shaken by two earthquakes in Tokyo while in town to do intense research for her reality show on women’s fashion across the world. Brangelina sported matching black-on-black ensembles at L.A.’s Inglourious Basterds premiere, because who doesn’t want to wear form-fitting black leather in the middle of August?
It’s tough being Leighton Meester. She partied in the Hamptons with her boyfriend, Sebastian Stan, over the weekend, downing midday rosé at Southampton’s Day & Night Beach Club, then hitting up Lily Pond with Ashton and Demi. Amy Sacco was once queen of NYC nightlife, and now she can’t even land a good B-lister for her Bravo reality show. Liv Tyler, Rachel Roy, the Olsen twins, and Karolina Kurkova have all turned her down. Ben Stiller will be battling the outback on the Discovery Channel’s Man vs. Wild. The Octo-Mom has, unfortunately, landed her own Fox special. Oprah Winfrey showed a group of girls from her Leadership Academy in South Africa around town over the weekend, giving them a tour of the city’s fine culinary offerings at places like Planet Hollywood, Dylan’s Candy Bar, and Serendipity 3. Sex and the City producers are holding a casting call at LaGuardia Place hookah bar Le Souk on Thursday, looking for Middle Eastern people to dance in the film’s sequel.
Philippines president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s $20,000 fête at Le Cirque last week is causing quite a hubbub in her home country, with Filipinos in uproar over the eleven bottles of Krug Champagne her entourage ordered at $510 a pop, not to mention the five ounces of $1,400 Osteria caviar. In Betrayal: The Life and Lies of Bernie Madoff, out today, author Andrew Kirtzman writes that Madoff was worried every time investigators from the Securities and Exchange Commission would arrive at his Third Avenue office. However, “The youthful SEC staffers were so dazzled to be at Madoff headquarters that they occasionally inquired about job openings at the company.” John Thain dined at Park Avenue Summer. Elton John, Sting, and Cindy Crawford hung out at Club 55 in St. Tropez. Renée Zellweger and Bradley Cooper boarded a flight to Barcelona together on Saturday, yet they still won’t admit they’re a couple. And Jermaine Jackson, rocking a Manny Ramirez jersey, caught a fly ball at Dodger stadium.
Ciara prefers to sweat it out in the gym to the Black Eyed Peas and Flo Rida rather than starve herself with cayenne-pepper “cleanses.” She should talk to Gwyneth. Halle Berry is looking preggers. Grammy Award–winning country duo Brooks & Dunn have called it quits after twenty years. And Amy Winehouse is redecorating her home in a floral motif to reflect her newly calm state. Apparently “she is particularly keen on peachy colourings.”
