J.Lo and Marc Sue for Libel 

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are fighting back against sleazy tabloid allegations. The clean-living couple has filed libel suits in Europe against the National Enquirer for linking them to a drug scandal (based on a photo of Marc with a man later busted for heroin). They reportedly seek a retraction, apology and "substantial damages."

Has Paris finally found Mr. Right?

Could Paris Hilton finally be settling down? The famously hard-partying heirhead is so infatuated with her new beau, former "Desperate Housewives" hunk Josh Henderson, that she seems to have tamed her wild ways.

A source dished to Star on their PG-rated courtship: "Josh and Paris have been taking their relationship slow by spending their evenings over quiet dinners and watching movies." How quaint!

"Paris is completely smitten with Josh," the source adds. "I have never seen her allow a guy to take the lead. When she is around Josh, she just follows him around like a puppy dog and never lets him out of her sight."

Indeed, the "Simple Life" star was reportedly doting on her man at a Sunday event, overcoming her aversion to manual labor long enough to fill his plate with food.

A domesticated Paris? We don’t like this one bit.

Split or Not?

What’s the real deal with on-off couple Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling? The latest issue of Us Weekly reported that the up-and-coming actors were headed for a wedding. Yet in a new report on the magazine’s Web site, stories on their status differ.

One source close to the pair claims they’re taking "a break" — but "not a breakup," explaining that Oscar-nominated Ryan wanted space to nurture his blossoming career.

Yet another source says they called it quits weeks ago: "Ryan was in love with her, but it didn’t work out because of their conflicting work schedules."

The insider adds, "They’re both miserable. Hopefully they’ll get back together soon." By then, we may have given up guessing what’s up with these two.

For the record, Rachel’s rep said the report was "completely false."

Salma on Superwomen

Actress-producer Salma Hayek, engaged and pregnant at 40, seems to be at the peak of her career and her personal life. But she says women should resist the pressure to strive for that perfect balance.

"Motherhood is not for everyone," Salma tells Marie Claire. "It is for me, but there’s no reason women should feel rushed to have a child."

"Society thinks if you don’t have children, you’ve failed as a woman, even if you are CEO of a company," the "Ugly Betty" producer explains. "You’ve got to be beautiful, smart, skinny, tall, rich, successful at your job, married to the right guy — and have genius children. And by the way, you also have to be a nun!"

The gorgeous star says she also feels pressure from Hollywood to maintain a flawless red-carpet appearance: "The stress is sensational. But then, you have to keep everything in perspective. It’s a dress, hair, makeup — c’mon, let’s go! We have to stop this obsession that starts when we’re teenagers: ‘Am I pretty enough?’"

That’s one thing Salma really doesn’t have to worry about.

Wrestling Mismatch?

The curse of the reality show relationship may be striking again. After 20-plus years of marriage, wrestler Hulk Hogan and wife Linda, stars of VH1’s "Hogan Knows Best," are on the ropes, according to the New York Post.

A pal of the couple told the paper that one issue was teen daughter Brooke’s risqué image as an aspiring pop star: "They have different beliefs on how to raise kids. Brooke started her music career, and they started getting into fights."

The arguing got so bad, says the insider, that once "Linda got so fed up she quit the VH1 show. She just walked off. No one knows what started that fight but it was serious."

According to another pal, "at one point they were talking divorce. It’s still precarious." However, the couple is now filming the series’ fourth season, and their rep is mum on the report. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, this curse must be stopped. If anything came between Ozzy and Sharon, we don’t know what we’d do!
