Mary-Kate Sets Her Sights on Chace?

Brooke Astor
Okay, so we know everybody's been skeptical of the much-touted love affair between Carrie Underwood and Chace Crawford (have they ever been seen together more than twice?). But now that there might be another girl in the picture, we're a little bit worried. According to the blog Faded Youth (which must be reliable because it has pictures of Rumer Willis on it), Mary-Kate Olsen may have her eye on the sexy star of the Greatest Show of Our Time. She spent Wednesday evening chatting with him at the Waverly Inn and then met up with him later at Lit. It's probably nothing, but it still doesn't look good. Chace is all blue eyes and innocence and hairspray. If he starts dating M-K, suddenly he's going to be unshaven and haggard, wandering the streets clutching grande latte in a paper cup and looking sweaty. And then he might do something awful like get stolen by Paris Hilton and move to L.A. to go to places like Hyde and start hanging out with Wilmer Valderamma. Or worse. Don't do it, Chace! We promise we'll start believing in your relationship with Carrie Underwood. Everyone, believe with us. Clap! For the love of God, start clapping! Is MK Chasing Chace?

How to Wear Super-Skinny Leather Pants

On Wednesday night, Lindsay Lohan was snapped wearing shiny black leggings, and earlier this week Rihanna created a fuss when images of her running around Paris during Fashion Week in similar trousers surfaced. The look didn't do either starlet any favors, since the key to pulling off the super-tight leather pants look is ensuring you have the actual pants.

Mary-Kate Olsen's Studded Givenchy Jacket Is Her Secret Shame!

Spotted all over Paris (and on blogs galore): Mary-Kate Olsen in a gold-studded jacket that unquestionably weighed more than she did. Who ever was responsible for this most glorious piece of armor?, we wondered. And where the hell can we get it? After some digging and a few furious phone calls by the folks at Jeffrey, we hit pay dirt: It's Givenchy! Hallelujah! Ricardo Tisci, you are a genius! Get us to Barneys!

Mary-Kate and Ashley to Become Belles of Lettres

Influence
They say everyone has a book in them, and so it comes as no surprise that the Olsen twins have finally decided to put quill to paper and distill the full breadth of their life experience. Influence which will be edited by 'mocialite Derek Blasberg and published by Penguin's young-adult-oriented Razorbill imprint in the fall, will take a look at the artists and fashion designers who, according to People, have "inspired the savvy fashionistas over the past decade" — you know, since they were 11 — as well as a compendium of "exclusive" photographs of Ashley and Mary-Kate, along with other materials and interviews from the twins "personal collections." We're kind of expecting it will be something like Susan Sontag's Against Interpretation meets Paris Hilton's Confessions of an Heiress. We can't wait for book club!

Linda Stein Could Not Have Blown Pot Smoke in Natavia Lowery's Face

Linda Stein
An autopsy on the body of real-estate broker Linda Stein, who was allegedly killed by her assistant Natavia Lowery at the end of October, has revealed that there was no marijuana in her system at the time of her death. This rips a hole in Lowery's defense strategy, as she has claimed she was driven into a rage after Stein yelled at her and repeatedly blew marijuana smoke into her face. It was that incensed rage, Lowery said, that led her to shatter Stein's skull with a yoga bar. But police sources told the Post that even a small amount of marijuana would have showed up in her system, and the toxicological tests on Stein's body, completed last week, revealed nothing. (Lawyers for Lowery say that she "made things up to get out of the interrogation room," including the marijuana-smoke story, and even the murder confession.) This is good news for prosecutors, who are trying to build up a narrative that Lowery had been using her boss' credit cards and bank accounts and killed her when she was caught. But it raises the question: Why did it take over three months for toxicology reports to come in on her death and just ten days for Heath Ledger's? Not that we're surprised that his got rushed through after all the public scrutiny, but that's an awfully big time difference. We fully expect an offensive Sean Delonas cartoon about this matter in "Page Six" tomorrow, most likely involving some bodyguards pushing around some wimpy gay forensic scientists, at the orders of a skeletal Mary-Kate Olsen.

The ‘Post’ Still in the Anger Stage of Dealing With Heath Ledger's Death

Heath Ledger Mary Kate
We are still several days away from finding out results of the toxicology reports being done on Heath Ledger's body, but the New York Post is still having trouble with the fact that, as yet, there is no one to blame. Last week, we were surprised at all of the heat they brought on Mary-Kate Olsen. They put her face on the cover and claimed she was to be questioned by police (they stand by the story, but cops are now saying they won't be speaking with the actress). Olsen is involved, as even your golden retriever must know by now, because the masseuse who found Ledger's body mysteriously called her before calling 911. Olsen sent in her bodyguards rather than calling the police. After we and other Websites like Gawker.com pointed out the contradiction between the paper's story and what police were saying, we were e-mailed with a blusterous comment from Post editor Col Allan, which implied that the police were "afraid" of Olsen and that's why they wouldn't question her. Then, they followed up on Saturday with a photo-free cover, which asked "WHY" the police weren't questioning Olsen. There was an interior editorial that day explaining that the tabloid was receiving "dark communications" from Olsen's lawyers, threatening them.
