TomKat still smarting from Hathaway joke on 'SNL' 

Are Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes blowing off the Oscars because they can’t take a joke? A British newspaper claimed the power couple is still smarting from a mocking impression of Katie that co-host Anne Hathaway did while hosting “Saturday Night Live” in November.

The sketch — with the actress talking in a breathy voice and playing with her hair — was relatively innocuous as “SNL” satires go, but a source told the Daily Mail that TomKat will skip the Academy Awards because they “don’t want to have to cross paths with Anne.”

“They used to be friends and took Anne to a Tina Turner concert in 2008 when Anne split up from her boyfriend Raffaello Follieri,” the source said. “Katie feels they were really supportive at a difficult time, so she feels let down that Anne took to national TV to make fun of her.

“Anne didn’t even warn her it was going to be on TV.”

The nerve! They took her to a Tina Turner concert and this is how she repays them? Did Anne not understand that signified a sacred bond?

Sixx split

Denise Richards and Nikki Sixx have split up. Yes, we will forgive you if you forgot they were dating in the first place — it appears everyone else has as well.

“It’s crazy how this is being made out to be some big breakup,” an insider told Us magazine. “They were never exclusive or serious to begin with!”

“I could count on my hand how many times they went out,” the source said of the actress and the Mötley Crüe rocker, who were a couple for all of about six weeks. “They decided to try it and she was not interested. That’s dating! This isn’t some big, dramatic split.”

Denise, is that source you? Just wondering.

Blondes having fun

Speaking of couples we had forgotten about, remember how Ryan Phillippe and Amanda Seyfried left a Halloween party together? (Or maybe you blocked that out owing to resentment over the fact that she managed to look stunning in a brown-dog costume.) Well, it appears they are still going strong after two months — an eternity in Hollywood-hookup terms.  

Reportedly, the “Crash” actor and the “Mamma Mia” starlet have been spending quality time together, and the romance is progressing into more-serious territory.

“They’re really into each other,” a source told People magazine. “They’re a really good match, and [are] just enjoying it all right now.”

Spotted recently on a breakfast date with friends, “they were really cute,” an onlooker said. “The two of them smiled the whole time.”

Think these two have long-term staying potential?


Jenni “J-Woww” Farley has never been shy about baring her bod on “Jersey Shore” with revealing outfits. But now she is fighting her ex-boyfriend, Tom Lippolis, to prevent him from selling nude photographs of her.

So why would J-Woww be so concerned about the footage going public when, frankly, we have already seen most of her, ahem, assets on display in skimpy outfits?

“Before she had her second breast augmentation, she was uneven, scarred, deformed and had tons of cellulite,” Tom told Radar Online.

Oh, that makes sense. It’s not modesty — it’s brand management.
