DUNZO!


So sad to hear this...Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff have recently split. The two met on the third season of Dancing with the Stars. Even though they never really come public with their relationship, the quiet twosome were living together.
They were such a cute couple! Oh well...we all know that these Hollywood romances rarely last.

The Hills On Rolling Stone Cover


Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, and Heidi Montag all got together to pose for the cover of Rolling Stone. Yes, you heard me right...Lauren and Heidi agreed to be at the same place for a photoshoot.

Us Weekly reports:

"I really pray for her," Montag told Usmagazine.com.
Conrad's bud, Lauren "Lo" Bosworth (who was also there), defended her pal.
"I wasn't aware that Heidi was an especially religious gal," she snapped. "But if she wants to pray, she can pray all she wants."
When told that Montag is praying for her, Conrad rolled her eyes.
"That’s really nice of her," she said before walking off.

I think the photo that is gracing the cover is super cute...however, Heidi just looks rather awkward in it. The other gals look like they are all having a fun time and there she stands on the end posing. BLECH!

Engaged!


Another day, another celebrity engagement. Carmen Electra's boyfriend of less than one year, Rob Patterson, popped the question. A picture of the ring hasn't surfaced yet, but it is said that it is a black diamond set in white diamonds. Sounds interesting! This will be Carmen's third marriage. Let's hope third times the charm. Congrats to the happy couple!!!

The Style File

I adore the fashion sense of the celebrity that we have in The Style File today: Thandie Newton. To get yourself a look like Thandie you have to remember two things:
1) Thandie isn't afraid to wear COLOR! She loves bright colors, bold prints, and funky designs.
2) She hardly wears accessories. Wearing too much jewelry with bold dresses is just too overwhelming.

Here are some of our favorite Thandie Newton looks from over the years:

Beyonce Rip Off?


Check out Ashanti's new album cover. Is it just me or is she totally ripping off Beyonce's look? From the hair to the dress to the pose. It's not a bad album cover...just not very original at all.

Extensions Are Back


Lauren Conrad showed up at the Absolut 100 Kanye West party with some brand new long locks. I guess long extensions are the in thing for the season (Selma Blair and Rumer Willis were also recently spotted wearing long extensions).
I always thought LC was cute with long hair...but I was really digging her new shorter hairstyle. It made her look a bit more grown up and edgy.

Are you happy Lauren is back to having long locks?
