Katy Perry and Russell Brand: Trouble in Paradise?

Perry hits Hawaii, Russell heads to England after having a huge fight

Uh oh: Are Katy Perry and Russell Brand splitting up?! Rumors are flying that these two are having serious problems. And what's most telling: they spent the holidays apart. Katy flew to Hawaii, where she's been seen frolicking on the beaches in her skimpy bikini. Russell headed to the UK, where he's been making the rounds at pubs in Cornwall, England. Is this just a little time off, or is this yet another celebrity couple that might be heading for divorce?
Let's hope not. This isn't the first time that the tabloids have raised the question about trouble in paradise for Katy and Russell, after all.

Erin Heatherton: Leonardo DiCaprio's Latest Victoria's Secret Conquest?

Does he ever date non-models? Brunettes?

Is Leonardo DiCaprio dating another supermodel? Call me crazy, but I do believe Leo will only date models! The latest rumor making the rounds pairs DiCaprio up with yet another Victoria's Secret model: Erin Heatherton. And yes, she's blond, statuesque and, well, generally gorgeous. I suppose the whole Blake Lively fling didn't work out because she doesn't model in her undies?
Say what you want, but Leonardo DiCaprio definitely has an affinity for having beautiful women on his arm. The thing I'm wondering, though, is whether he's capable of having an actual relationship? Sure, he was with Bar Refaeli for several years - but since then, it's been one model after another (after another, ad infinitum).

Slim Dunkin Murder leaves Atlanta Police Clueless

Arrest are pending further investigation

Atlanta police are still trying to determine what the disagreement was about that landed Slim Dunkin DOA at Grady Memorial Hospital. Dunkin was shot in the chest earlier this week while preparing to shoot a new music video. Police have differing versions of the actual event and events prior to the murder.

Celebrity Divorces 2011: Demi and Ashton, Kim K and Kris

Two high-profile splits, but which was more scandalous?

Say what you want about 2011 (it hasn't been a great year for lots of people), but it could always be worse: Your personal problems could be aired out for millions to see. I'm not talking about your 500 Facebook friends, either. I mean millions around the globe. Consider, if you will, what I think were the two most scandalous divorces of the year: Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher's split, and the ridiculously short marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Which is worse?
Both couples' splits were high profile, no question. But personally, I'm more thrown off kilter by Ashton and Demi Moore's divorce. Sure, I sort of always wondered how long they'd last - but at some point, I think I just got comfy with these two. I thought maybe, just maybe, they'd prove doubters wrong and stick it out long-term. Hate that I was wrong about that.
Kimmy K and Kris Humphries' 72-day marriage (and really I use that term very loosely) was a total sham. Yep, it was a pretty wedding. Yep, Kim Kardashian looked lovely. Yep, she made bank on the affair - and she's making bank on the smouldering ashes of the relationship too. Ratings for Kourtney and Kim Take New York on E! are through the roof, as viewers tune in to watch the whole nasty Kim and Kris marriage unravel. So while I'll agree this whole bit is scandalous and very tabloid-rich, I still think Demi and Ashton's situation is worse.

Linsay Lohan Playboy Issue released early

The main reason for the early release is due to an internet leak. Hugh Heffner promises that it is one hot issue so anyone waiting patiently for this issue doesn’t have to wait much longer.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez: True Love in Mexico

Teen superstars share smooches, and the whole world pays attention

What would a week be without a Justin Bieber story? I'm enriching my mind by following the love story that is Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. Everybody now: Awwwwww. This week, the Biebs and his lady love flew down to Mexico for a little vacay and some serious PDA.
Call me crazy, but I think they're pretty cute together. Now cynics, stop snickering - remember teen luv? Back then, my boyfriend was NOT a mega-star, and thus, he did not have the financial means to fly us to Cabo for a weekend of smooching. But if either of us HAD been mega-stars with unlimited funds, you can bet we'd have gone. Just like Justin and Selena.

Brooke Mueller Arrested on Drug Charges (Again): Will She Ever Learn?

Charlie Sheen's ex booked in Aspen, Colorado

Brooke Mueller is making headlines. Again. What now, you ask? What has Charlie Sheen's ex-wife been up to? Details continue to surface, but here's what we know at the moment: Mueller was arrested in Aspen, Colorado, on Friday night. She was charged with felony assault and cocaine possession.
When will Brooke Mueller finally get her act together? How many times has she been to rehab, now? It's hard to keep count. Mueller's been quietly doing her thing in recent months, without appearing in the tabloids too often. Her quiet stint? Yeah, it's over now.
