Ashlee officially becomes Roxie Hart tonight, when she will make her debut in the West End production of Chicago. Jessica is in London to support sister Ashlee as she takes the stage. Ashlee explains to us why she's the perfect person to play Ms. Hart. Here's more:
"The play is absolutely all about celebrity and wanting to be famous and having your name in the papers and your picture in the papers," Simpson, 21, tells AP Radio. "And, in that sense, it's been kind of cool, because I've really got to connect to that, because I've seen that world and been in that world."
"You are not a celebrity when you come here. Everyone is equal, everyone has to work together, so this has been amazing," she says of being part of an ensemble cast. "But, as far as tabloids and whatnot go, I really try to keep my head out of them and try not to read the stories or anything like that, because they are never really true."

Janet is back. She's 60 pounds lighter, very much in love, and her new album 20 Y.O. is hitting stores tomorrow. In preparation, she stopped by Oprah today to discuss her new album and the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" with Justin Timberlake 2 years ago. People reports:
"We haven't spoken. But I consider him a friend, and I'm very loyal, and friendship is very important to me," Jackson, 40, told Winfrey. "He has reached out to speak with me. Like I said, friendship is very important to me – and certain things you just don't do to friends. And in my own time, I'll give him a call."
Asked if she felt Timberlake failed to stick up for her after the incident, in which he ripped her bustier, exposing her breast to millions of viewers, Jackson replied, "To a certain degree, yeah."
Jackson, who releases her album 20 Y.O. on Tuesday, feels that she unfairly bore the brunt of the criticism after the Super Bowl performance – a sentiment Timberlake seems to agree with. "If there was something I could have done in her defense that was more than I realized then, I would have," he told MTV recently. "I probably got 10 percent of the blame."
Wow! After being dumped by Harry Ms. Lohan is in a super bad mood. While being escorted out of Dragonfly this weekend, LL told the photographers to "f*** off and die." Her rep credits this comment to poor LL just being tired of all the attention, but maybe it's because she got caught making out with Paris' ex-man Stavros...
TMZ originally printed, "Lindsay Lohan was spotted with Paris Hilton's ex boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos, Sunday night at Dragonfly in Hollywood," but that story has now been pulled. An earlier one even said they were caught making out. Was the story wrong, or did LL's people make TMZ edit it? Why did LL leave the club hiding behind a sheet? Click here to watch the video and decide for yourself.
UPDATE: Looks like TMZ has updated their story with more evidence of Lindsay and Stavros' night together. Here's more:
Though Lindsay went to great lengths not to be seen with the Greek shipping heir outside the nightclub -- hiding behind a sheet and telling photogs to "f*** off and die" -- the two were all smiles when spotted together earlier that night. Lohan and Niarchos were photographed looking very flirtatious while hanging out at the Chateau Marmont, Lindsay's home, before heading to a concert at Dragonfly.

Executive produced by Darren Star, Runaway is the story of a high-powered attorney, played by Donnie Wahlberg (NKOTB, Band of Brothers), and his family who are on the run because he is being framed in the brutal murder of his mistress. The family moves to a small town in Iowa and claim to be victims of Hurricane Katrina, forced to rebuild their lives. Paul Rader (Wahlberg) promises his wife (played by Leslie Hope, "24") and three children (ages 8, 15 and 17) that the situation is temporary and that he just needs time to prove his innocence.
Although I was thoroughly entertained by the pilot, and especially sympathized with the teenage kids, I must say you really need to suspend your disbelief on this show. Why would Paul's wife agree to leave her wonderful life in the posh suburb of Potomac, Maryland to live a life constantly on the run, at standards well below what she had been accustomed to when she just found out her husband was a cheating scumbag? The show tries to solve this question by making it so the people that are framing her husband for murder are threatening to kill his family, but this plot twist seems to have developed out of convenience. Bottom line, I was entertained by the first episode and I am curious about when happens to the family this season, so I am happy to just accept the parts that are somewhat unbelievable and allow myself to be entertained especially since the dialogue among the kids is great. Runaway premieres tonight at 9/8c on The CW.
Nicole may have happily moved on from her relationship with DJ AM to Brody Jenner, but she's not quite ready to see her ex with a new lady. Nicole celebrated her 25th birthday at the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party, and the new girl DJ AM has been linked to, Lauren Hastings, was in attendance as well. But shortly after Lauren showed up, she was escorted right out of the party. Wonder if Nicole had something to do with that?! Here's more:
According to a spywitness: "When DJ AM's new girlfriend [Lauren Hastings] showed up, Nicole had security mysteriously 'clear her area.'" And Lauren suddenly found herself on the wrong side of the velvet rope.
Hastings, a 22-year-old model, had been observed shadowing AM (aka Adam Goldstein) during the MTV Video Music Awards.
According to her MySpace page - Generation Y's chosen platform for self-humiliation - her interests include "flossing" and "smoking cigarettes! Ya Know!!!" Her stated occupation is "unicorn fluffer."

Pete may have missed his Bali wedding due to rehab, but it's looking like the make-up ceremony will happen very soon. The rumor is Kate accepted Pete's proposal while visiting him in rehab last week and Pete is set to leave rehab this week for his crack cocaine and heroin addiction. We hope Pete really is on the road to recovery if Kate does plan to marry the addict. Here's more:
According to the newspaper, the pair are likely to wed abroad – probably a tropical destination – where the only guest will be Kate’s mother Linda.
The former Libertines star, who has battled drug addiction for the past few years, allegedly told Priory staff: "We will run away together to somewhere no one can find us and then we'll get married."
The Babyshambles frontman has made good progress during his latest stay at the Priory. He has put on weight and apparently looks healthier than he has in years. The source told the newspaper: "From the moment Pete came into the clinic, he accepted he was addicted to drugs like heroin and crack. He knew he had a problem.
"In counselling sessions he has said things that show he knows what he needs to do – stop taking drugs and seek help as soon as he feels the urge to do so.
"Kate has been so impressed with that attitude. She has always loved him but just needed him to straighten up. Now there's nothing to stop them marrying."

Not only do we love Jake because he's super cute, but he just seems like a good, down-to-earth, quality guy. After running around with his very pregnant sister Maggie, Jake caught up with his dad for an afternoon of father son bonding over coffee. Did we even mention he looks so much better without the beard. Keep on shaving Jakey - we likey!

Elle Macpherson's 3-year-old son was baptised in Rome this weekend and check out who was on the guest list. Posh strutted her stuff straight to the Italian chapel in a mini puffy dress. She looks like a doll in this outfit. She has definitely stepped up her style and seriously improved her look, however, this may not be the most appropriate attire for a church ceremony.
