At a Save the Children event, Jennie Garth (wife of Twilight’s Peter Facinelli) slipped to a reporter that Robert Pattinson is officially dating one of his co-stars. Nice work, Garth. Way to butt into someone else’s love life just to get your name in the press (that being said, our money’s on Kristen Stewart). At the after-party for HBO documentary By the People: The Election of Barack Obama, the president’s staffers and senior speechwriters, Jon Favreau and Adam Frankel, partied until Sutra Lounge closed, along with Adrian Grenier, who turned down bottled water in protest of its packaging’s environmental impact. Blake Lively filmed a Gossip Girl scene outside the Upper East Side’s Dorrian’s (where else?), while Michelle Trachtenberg gave the Gossip Girl cameras her best Georgina in Chinatown. Paul Shaffer bumped into Queen Latifah, Jay-Z, and Beyoncé at Nello. Daniel Craig, rocking some new facial hair, dined at ‘21’ with Hugh Jackman. Derek Jeter’s girlfriend, Friday Night Lights’ Minka Kelly, is giving Kate Hudson the cold shoulder at home games.
Sienna Miller threw a pool party to introduce her latest love, D.J. Slinky Wizard, to her nearest and dearest, including James Blunt, who wouldn’t stop hitting on her. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen double-dated with their men-of-the-moment, Nate Lowman and Justin Bartha, respectively, to celebrate Bartha’s birthday at Strip House followed by a few drinks and some “chain smoking” at the Jane Hotel. Madonna and Sean Combs are supposedly both interested in the estate music mogul Tommy Mottola is selling in North Salem for $10 million. However, we’re skeptical, because can we really picture Diddy in Salem? Tom Brady waxes philosophical about his nontraditional love life, preaching, “That’s not how you envisioned your life, that’s not how you envisioned having children, but it happens. Life is not living in the suburbs with a white picket fence.” Because everyone knows what it’s like to ditch Bridget Moynahan and their unborn child to go ahead and impregnate Gisele.
Matt Damon pulled a Renée Zellweger and packed on 30 pounds for his role in The Informant. Elle Macpherson is stealing styling tips from Victoria Beckham, except she can actually fill out the clothes. Chris Brown sported a “tartan waistcoat” to Guys and Dolls on Broadway. Amy Winehouse’s brother thinks her life story should be made into a musical. Diane Kruger tells Playboy that she “did everything except sleep with the director [Quentin Tarantino]” to land her role in Inglourious Basterds.

Raucous Chrystie Street cabaret the Box hired the host of Vegas’s adult-themed Cirque du Soleil show, Joey Arias, to take over for its current master of ceremonies. “Inappropriate” photos of Brown Harris Stevens brokers are cropping up online. Anna Faris and actor Chris Pratt tied the knot in Bali. Kourtney Kardashian was “so shocked” to find out she’s pregnant. And Mel Gibson’s pregnant girlfriend says they “haven’t really talked about” whether they’ll get married. Shocking.
