Tara Reid gets defensive about Paris Hilton
Reid says, "Yes, I hang out with Paris and we're friends. She's a great girl, she's fun.
"But we don't arrange to go out; I normally just see her out and someone says, 'Let me take a photo of you two.'"
"I don't have her number, she doesn't have mine. Have a look at my phone if you don't believe me."

Tony Danza Slams Tom Cruise in celebrity bitch fight
Former Taxi star Tony Danza is far from impressed with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' baby news - because they're having a child out of wedlock. The Hollywood couple, who became engaged in June after two months of dating, announced they're expecting their first child together on Wednesday. Danza is bemused by Cruise's behavior and believes his recent attack on Brooke Shields' decision to take medication for her postpartum depression was hypocritical considering the Mission: Impossible star is now living his own life with questionable morality. The talk show host says, "I'm a little upset about this. Here's a guy out there lecturing people about drugs, but out of wedlock births don't seem to bother him. He's never (appearing on) my show, so it doesn't matter." He adds, "I'm happy for them, but we're going to send them to Maury Povich's show for a DNA test."

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey Breakup Rumors Heat Up
Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey Breakup Rumors Heat Up
Another day, another divorce story about Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. Magazine reports prompted representatives for the pop star couple to issue statements Wednesday denying they have split - although semantically speaking, the statements left room for a future breakup.
"Nick and Jessica have not separated," said a statement issued on behalf of Simpson and Lachey. "Rumors to the contrary are simply not true."
In an e-mail to The Associated Press, Simpson representative Brad Cafarelli reiterated: "They have not separated."
Us Weekly magazine, without naming sources, broke a story Wednesday that said Simpson and Lachey separated over the weekend.
Alex Dudley, a spokesman for Us Weekly, said the magazine was standing by its story. The latest issue, on newsstands Friday, proclaims "Split!" on the cover.
For the past year, rumors have dogged Lachey and Simpson, who will celebrate their third anniversary Oct. 26. Magazines have run pictures of Simpson with or without her wedding ring.
Lachey, 31, and Simpson, 25, had the trials and tribulations of their marriage chronicled on MTV's "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica."
As recently as August, Lachey denied any impending split, saying everything was "absolutely wonderful."

Britney Spears sex tape could be released
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline reportedly fear a steamy home sex video is about to be made public. A member of the singer's entourage is believed to have copied one of the couple's personal video tapes - allegedly recorded while Britney was still expecting baby son Sean Preston - and is threatening to release it.
A source told America's Us Weekly magazine: "He has threatened to release raunchy footage of the two taken before Spears looked pregnant."
During her pregnancy, Britney confessed her sex life was the best it had ever been. The sexy singer insisted her bedroom romps with husband Kevin had been red hot since she conceived.
She confessed at the time: "I think it's the best. Sex is crazy good."
Britney also stunned viewers on her reality TV show, Chaotic, after she was shown begging Kevin for sex.
The blonde babe, who was not married to former dancer Kevin when the footage was shot, brands the couple's bedroom antics "so good" before begging her 26-year-old lover to let her take the day off from her Onyx hotel tour last year "to just fuck all day."
The Toxic singer then turned her attention to the sex lives of her staff and crew - quizzing them about their favourite sexual positions.

Tara Reid Meltdown: 'I am not a Drunk'
We say no, she's not a whore. And she was great in American Pie
Don't call me 'party girl' Tara Reid has had it with the entertainment media hammering away at her--well--party girl antics. The blonde starlet is apparently taking the cancellation of her E! show Taradise pretty hard as she had a meltdown of sorts during a recent interview with Steppin' Out magazine according to Page Six.
Her interview with Chaunce Hayden had a bit of a Richard Nixon quality to it as Reid revealed, "I am not a drunk."
"How many more years are [the media] going to pick on me? There's other new young bad girls. Move on to someone else! . . . I need one more great movie role so they say, 'Wow, she can act! She's a great actress.'
Then I think they'll leave me alone . . . If I'm going to try and do something, it has to happen this year. I'm not stupid."
"People think [I am just a party girl], and it's bull[bleep]," she ranted to Hayden. "I wish they would just tell the truth. I'm not a drunk . . . I don't have a drinking problem. I don't have a drug problem, for sure.
Don't worry Tara, we still love you

Kate Moss goes to rehab to get people to think she's clean
Friends of the 31-year-old supermodel who was photographed apparently snorting cocaine told The Times that Moss flew to The Meadows clinic, where she will spend a month in "medical treatment and therapy."
A nurse on duty at the Wickenburg, Ariz., facility said she could not confirm or deny a patient's presence. The model's agent wasn't immediately available for comment Thursday. Several phone calls to the Storm modeling agency went unanswered.
Moss lost contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel worth millions of dollars after the photos were published in the Daily Mirror tabloid.
Moss issued an apology last week, taking "full responsibility for my actions." In her statement, Moss said, "I also accept that there are various personal issues that I need to address and have started taking the difficult, yet necessary, steps to resolve them."
Sarah Doukas, head of the Storm modeling agency, said Wednesday that Moss would soon sign a contract to represent a luxury perfume brand.
"She loves modeling - and she needs to be busy," Doukas said.

Kate Moss does cocaine, world pretends to be surprised
Now recent pictures of Moss allegedly snorting cocaine in a London studio have turned the 31-year-old fashion icon into a pariah, with fashion companies canceling or not renewing contracts worth millions of dollars.
Moss issued an apology Thursday, taking "full responsibility for my actions." Her dramatic fall has forced a re-think on fashion's role models, and has raised questions about how an industry notorious for its drug-fueled party life can cultivate Moss' bad-girl image, then turn on her once that image matches reality.
"It's hypocritical," said pop culture lecturer Cary Cooper of Lancaster University. "The industry saw the warning signs. Others saw the warning signs. Something should have been done sooner."
Moss was dropped by Burberry, Chanel and Swedish clothing giant H&M. The British cosmetics company Rimmel London said Thursday it was "reviewing" her $2.3 million contract.
In her statement, Moss said, "I also accept that there are various personal issues that I need to address and have started taking the difficult, yet necessary, steps to resolve them."
Originally from the unglamorous south London suburb of Croydon, Moss was discovered in 1988 by Storm agency founder Sarah Doukas at New York's John F. Kennedy airport. Two years later, topless pictures of the 14-year-old were splashed across billboards amid condemnation of Moss' waifish appearance, blank stare and emaciated figure.
The talk intensified as Moss entered adulthood. She boosted her stock by dating actors such as Johnny Depp and most recently Pete Doherty, the 26-year-old former Libertines frontman who has been in and out of drug rehab.
In 1998, she made headlines when she checked into a London rehab clinic for what was termed "exhaustion." Two years later, she was hospitalized again, reportedly for a kidney infection. In 2003, the chain-smoker was diagnosed with a "sleeping disorder." Allegations of her cocaine use never let up.
French fashion consultant Anne de Champigneuil said Moss should have been more careful. "People are lucky to have such great contracts, and they need to respect them ... It's a shame to give (fans) this example. Everyone identifies with a star."
Icelandic fashion designer Helga Vjornsson thought differently.
"It's really unfair," said Vjornsson, who lives off the legendary Parisian shopping street Rue du Faubourg St Honore. "She may be a product but she's a human being, too. The media are responsible for her loss of success or work."
It was the media that fueled Moss' rise with constant shots of the wide-eyed, 5-foot-6 beauty - and the paparazzi were just as quick to help her fall.
She recently settled a libel suit with Britain's Sunday Mirror, which published an article in January alleging that Moss had to be revived from a cocaine-induced coma in June 2001.
That same tabloid ran the pictures of her apparent cocaine use last week.
The Sun newspaper published new drug-related claims Thursday. Moss's lawyer, Gerrard Tyrell, denied the allegations. But that didn't matter to people like Marilena Rossina, one of many Londoners reading the latest headlines about Moss.
"She's been doing it for years, and we all know it," said Rossina, 38. "It's not like cocaine is something new in the modeling industry. But I'm worried about her child (Moss has a nearly 3-year-old daughter) and she's in the public eye - a role model for a lot of teen girls."
But French actress and model Catherine Deneuve, a former face of Chanel No. 5, said Moss' private life should be kept private.
"She's a great model. If she's ruining her personal life, that belongs to her," said Deneuve, 61. "What she does in her private life is very private. I find it unbearable that maybe someone shot her (picture), stole the photos then sold them."
"She's (Moss) an exceptional model, it is just a bad moment for her," said Vincenzo Liberato, who handles fashion casting for the Italian magazine Amica. "Media attack and tear down anything they want and they go especially against those who have made such a clear mistake."
Police announced they may question Moss, who was worth an estimated $26.3 million in 2000.
"There's a tendency to create a myth," said Simone Marchetti, a fashion writer for the Italian women's magazine Donna Moderna, "and then to destroy it."
