  • According to January Jones’ rep, the now-infamous incident involving Jones’ Range Rover hitting several parked cars—and Jones supposedly fleeing the scene soon after—was not as scandalous as the tabloids are making it seem:

“While being followed by paparazzi, Ms. Jones struck two parked cars. She did not flee the scene; she left her license with a witness and walked to her nearby home to call the police. She immediately returned to the scene to speak with the police. No citation was issued, nobody was injured, there was no alcohol involved and there is no investigation pending.” [AccessHollywood]

  • If you’re curious, however, TMZ has pictures of her smashed-up Range Rover. [TMZ]
  • “Drugs are for idiots, and I’m not going to be that person. As long as I steer clear of that and keep that mind frame, I’ll be cool. I just have way too much fun on my own. I look at people who [do drugs] and I’m like, ‘You look stupid. You don’t look hot and you don’t look sexy.'”-Miley Cyrus [People]
  • Robert O’Ryan, the man accused of stalking gymnast Shawn Johnson, has been found guilty of felony burglary after breaking into the set of Dancing With The Stars last year, when Johnson was a contestant. He won’t go to jail, though: the judge also found him legally insane and has sent him to a psychiatric treatment facility. [TMZ]
  • Jessica Biel says on-screen kissing isn’t as sexy as it seems: “It’s not at all hot. There’s a bazillion people around, everyone’s in your face fixing things. It’s very technical and precise. Your face has to be in the right place and the camera has to be at the right angle. So it’s not romantic.” [ShowbizSpy]
  • In a fairly revealing interview with the Times of London, Sean “Diddy” Combs admits that he has terrible insomnia, that he’s going through a “reinvention” period right now, and that he uses Twitter to help him fend off his loneliness: “It gives me a chance to at least have some sort of human interaction. I don’t really have a lot of friends, y’know? It’s not like nobody wants to be my friend. I don’t have friends because I work so much, and because I work so much, I’m not a good friend. You need a friend to be there for you. But if people want to go out to dinner and hang out with me I’m like, ‘Dinner? That’s four hours! That’s four hours of time when I could be working!'” [TimesOnline]
  • Kate Hudson is reportedly dating Matt Bellamy, the lead singer of Muse: “Matt has been over to America to hang out with Kate,” says a source, “But they have done everything they can to avoid being seen together in the early stages of their relationship. Things are going so well Kate is planning to fly to the UK to hang out with Matt at the festival. She wants to watch the band from the side of the stage and meet his pals.” [TheSun]
  • Meanwhile, Pete Doherty was turned away by US customs agents while trying to enter the country in order to perform with Sean Lennon, due to his history of drug abuse. [TheSun]
  • Taylor Swift says she was honored when Lady Gaga claimed to love her song, “You Belong With Me.” Says Swift: “That absolutely made my day when I read that because I’m a huge fan of hers.” [People]
  • Jenna Jameson and Tito Oritz: possibly headed for Splitsville. [PageSix]
  • Alex Rodriguez just dropped $7.4 million on a house in Miami. [PageSix]
  • Catherine Zeta-Jones has a new title: Commander of the British Empire. “I am absolutely thrilled with this honor. As a British subject, I feel incredibly proud. At the same time, it is overwhelming and humbling. And my mum and dad are delighted beyond belief.” [AP]
  • The father of the 17-year-old who claims he was shoved by Jodie Foster says the surveillance video showing the alleged attack has “mysteriously disappeared.” [RadarOnline]
  • Gross: Kelly Osbourne had to evacuate her home recently due to a break in the sewage pipes: “There are tree roots growing into our plumbing, and there is [bleep] coming out of the bathtub. It’s so disgusting we have to stay in a hotel.” [PageSix]
  • Gary Coleman’s ex-wife, Shannon Price is now delaying his autopsy due to her bid to win control over his estate. Says current executor Dion Mial: “Shannon is making it very difficult for authorities to get to the bottom of this… She is the full and complete impediment.” [RadarOnline]
  • But if Price is after Coleman’s money, she may have to compete with a “mystery woman” named Anna Gray, who has reportedly been named the sole heir of Coleman’s estate. [USWeekly]
  • Price’s lawyer calls this alleged “third will,” leaving everything to Gray, “despicable.” But not as despicable as selling death-bed photos to the Globe, eh? [RadarOnline]
  • The perks of having a Hollywood mom: Reese Witherspoon brought her 10-year-old daughter, Ava, to the set of her new film to meet her co-star, Robert Pattinson. “Ava seemed especially excited to meet him,” says a source. [People]
  • According to Spice Girl Melanie Brown, her formerly contentious relationship with her daughter’s father, Eddie Murphy is now “really cool.” [DailyMail]
  • Lily Allen sounds totally over fame: “”I hope in a year’s time I’m not gonna be asked to awards and I won’t be nominated because I haven’t put anything out there. And hopefully I can fade into oblivion.” [ShowbizSpy]
  • “Someone asked me yesterday if I was a Gleek, and I said, ‘What the heck is a Gleek? That’s not something I want to be.’ They said it’s someone who’s a fan of Glee, and I was like, ‘I’ve never seen it’… I’m not a huge, like, musical – whatever. I don’t know.”-Miley Cyrus [People]
  • “A lot of older fans come up to me and say, ‘I was Peggy’ or ‘my mother was Peggy’. It makes you incredibly grateful for what they put up with. That kind of movement, that bravery, had obviously existed long before the Sixties. It’s hard to imagine how they did it, in a way. I have such admiration for these incredible women. And I don’t think they ever decided, ‘I’m going to break through the glass ceiling’. The glass ceiling wasn’t invented until later. Peggy just wants to be recognized for who she is. She doesn’t want to be recognized as ‘I am woman, hear me roar’. She just has good ideas and thinks, ‘Why can’t you listen to my ideas too?'”-Elisabeth Moss, on her Mad Men character, Peggy Olson.
