It's Ring Time For Rose And Robert

  • Rose McGowan and her Planet Terror director Robert Rodriguez: Engaged! She was previously engaged to Marilyn Manson; he was previously married to the mother of his 5 kids. (Did we ever tell you our theory? That Rob likes Rose partly because her name starts with an R? His kids are named Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue and Rhiannon.) [People]
  • Word on Britney Spears is that she will get one monitored overnight visit with her kids per week. Apparently her behavior in the courtroom was "appalling." She interrupted the L.A. County Commissioner, was "sarcastic," "contentious, argumentative and condescending." [TMZ]
  • Hmm, or did she address the judge in a "soft and respectful voice" ? [People]
  • In any case, after court, Britney went shopping at Neiman-Marcus. [ET]
  • Is Michael Lohan a two-timer? A Long Island woman claims she had an "intimate, loving" relationship with Lindsay's dad for the past four months, only to find out this week he had another girlfriend.

  • Wednesday, Gene Simmons from Kiss slipped a flight attendant a note that read "Would you like to get together???" She declined. [Page Six]

  • Apparently new movie We Own The Night opens with a sexy scene that involves Joaquin Phoenix "proving his manual dexterity" with co-star Eva Mendes. We have no idea what that means but we want to see it. [Page Six]
  • Leonardo DiCaprio's model girlfriend, Bar Refaeli, is suing an Israeli newspaper for libel after claiming she said, "I am not sorry for not serving in the army ... Why is it good to die for our country? Isn't it better to live in New York?" Refaeli's lawyer Dror Arad Alon said the statements are false and that she was "wickedly manipulated." [Rush & Molloy, 4th item]
  • Pete Doherty plans to celebrate being sober by going on a "Dry Tour" in booze-free venues. Great for Pete, maybe not so great for the people who have to listen to his music without a cocktail? [The Sun]
  • Divorce talks between Heather Mills and Sir Paul McCartney have completely collapsed, and the couple is heading for a "full-blown public divorce hearing." The date is set for February — anything could happen before then! [Daily Mail]
