Celebrity Scoop! Jealous Vanessa blasts Nick in public 

Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey seem like the perfect couple. They’re even rumored to be engaged, as Scoop! reported recently. But the relationship’s not looking so rosy since a public blowup — when Vanessa flew into a jealous rage over a Jessica Simpson clone.

Thursday at NYC’s Plumm nightclub, Vanessa reportedly spotted Nick with a buxom blonde fembot — cast in the same mold as his ex-wife — seated on his lap. Getting up to leave, she made the universal sign for "call me" … and Vanessa went ballistic.

According to Web site TMZ, the MTV host shouted at her man, "What are you doing?" — followed by the four words every guy dreads most: "We need to talk!"

With that, Vanessa reportedly stormed out of the hot spot. Ever chivalrous, Nick followed and hailed a cab, only to watch his girlfriend jump into another. He approached Vanessa’s taxi, and they argued curbside before — phew — speeding off in the cab together.

Is this the beginning of the end for Minnillachey? Don’t lose sleep worrying. An insider told TMZ, "Every couple has their spats; they’re not going to break up over it."

Kylie Goes Solo

Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue has split with her boyfriend, French actor Olivier Martinez. Though the singer called her beau her rock during her successful cancer treatment, the ex-couple released a statement Friday announcing the "mutual and amicable" demise of their four-year relationship.

The duo directly addressed rumors about Olivier cheating: "The media’s false accusations of disloyalty have saddened them both. The two remain very close friends."

But according to news reports, other women may indeed be in the picture. Olivier recently spent an hour and a half in his hotel suite at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont with an Israeli-born model — who had previously joined him in Paris for three days in December. And he’s also been linked with "Lost" actress Michelle Rodriguez.

Kylie, you’re beautiful, talented, courageous and beloved throughout the world. You can do a whole lot better.

‘Jackass’ Casanova?

Apparently the breakup bug is going around. "Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville and his wife of 12 years, Melanie, have separated, his rep confirms. They are parents of daughter Madison, 10.

The news doesn’t exactly come as a complete stunner, considering longtime rumors of Johnny’s infidelity. The prankster was even alleged to have dallied with "Dukes of Hazzard" co-star Jessica Simpson during her marriage to Nick Lachey, though both denied any hookup.

"How do you live knowing that your husband leads a separate life ... and is sleeping with other women all the time?" a source who faults Johnny for the split asked Us magazine. "She deserves every penny if she is going to divorce him." If the rumors turn out to be true, we tend to agree.

Paris: Nasty Talk

(AP Photo/Ronald Zak) Despite her past indiscretions, heiress Paris Hilton remains a favorite with the international set, including Austrian mogul Richard Lugner, who proudly announced earlier this month that he will bring Hilton with him and his wife to this year's Viennese opera ball.

A federal judge issued a temporary injunction shutting down Paris Hilton auction site parisexposed.com; it forbids the proprietors to peddle "photographs, videos, and writings depicting [Paris] in a sexual manner not previously exposed to public viewing." (Gotta love that "previously.")

But the damage to the heiress’ image is already done, thanks to some incriminating video footage that was posted on the site. Paris, on the dance floor with sister Nicky, is heard to shout racial and homophobic epithets.

"I’m not going to make any attempt to spin this. It happened," Paris’ long-suffering rep admitted to the New York Post. "Each of us has used words we have regretted later. This was six years ago. She was 20 at the time. It was New Year’s Eve. She had been obviously drinking. She sincerely regrets using those words. She is not a racist or an anti-Semite."

Call it the Mel Gibson syndrome: Apparently, alcohol doesn’t just slur your speech, it causes you to spout slurs.
