LEO & BLAKE
CANNES, THEN ITALY TOGETHER!
Gossip Girl here: Blake Lively
and Leonardo DiCaprio
appear to be in the midst of an international romance. After an affectionate afternoon on a yacht in Cannes on May 17, the twosome headed to Portofino, Italy, where they were spotted sightseeing with friends on May 22. Says an observer: "They were laughing; they seemed happy in each other's company." A source says DiCaprio, 36, and Lively, 23, who met during a group dinner in New York City last November, are "having fun." They've had dinner with pals at L.A.'s Soho House, and at Jeremy Renner's birthday party in January the pair were "flirtatious," says an eyewitness. "They were giggling and very involved in conversation." DiCaprio split from longtime girlfriend Bar Refaeli in early May, while Lively and her Gossip Girl
costar Penn Badgley broke up last October. Is it serious? Time will tell.
IS GETTING CLOSE TO HER WANDERLUST
COSTAR JUSTIN THEROUX
Aniston, 42, and Theroux, 39, became friendly filming the comedy Wanderlust
in Georgia last fall and have "just started dating," says a source. The duo dined at L.A.'s Sunset Tower Hotel May 18, where an eyewitness says they looked "happy and flirty." Theroux, who has written several screenplays, including Iron Man 2
, also spent time at Aniston's Beverly Hills home the weekend of May 21. "Jen likes that Justin is edgier than the guys she usually dates," says a source. "She's excited to get to know him better."
CONNOR CRUISE: DEEJAY!
A love of entertaining runs in the family! Tom Cruise
and Nicole Kidman
's son Connor, 16, and pal Jake Isham, 20, have launched a deejay business: CZ Entertainment. At the Artists Against Drugs event in L.A. on May 21, Cruise (a.k.a. DJ C-Squared) "was fun, friendly, and played all the hits," says a guest. "He did a great job!"
Friends are concerned for the troubled starlet after she allegedly drank alcohol at L.A. hot spot Paul & Andre on May 14. Lohan, 24, downed multiple drinks with pals, says an observer. ("Lindsay was at home that evening," says her rep Steve Honig.) Since Lohan (who abstained while partying a week later in Miami) is not currently being tested for drugs or alcohol, her behavior doesn't necessarily affect her ongoing legal problems. After pleading no contest to stealing a necklace, she was sentenced to jail but will likely serve her time at home.
THE BIGGEST WINNERS

Olivia Ward, 35
Last year at 261 lbs., "I was sedentary. I spent most of my time on the couch," says Loser
's new winner. Now back in New York City, where she swapped her former fave breakfast (bacon, egg and cheese bagels) for Greek yogurt and berries, the 5'9" opera singer is an avid fan of spinning and can't wait to show off her new body onstage: "I really want to try my hand at sexpot roles!"

Hannah Curlee, 32 Before, a shopping trip meant "going to the old-lady section!" says the 5'9" human resources coordinator. Now a size 4, "I can wear all these designers. I haven't worn dresses in 10 years, and I feel beautiful."
Irene Alvarado, 27 "My taste buds changed," says the 5'3" student. "Nothing sounds as good to me as a piece of fruit." Her idea of a splurge is different too: "Instead of spending on food, I use it for manicures and pedicures."

ON THE ROAD
"It's very theatrical"
-Taylor Swift (in a replica of a 1950s dress) describes her stage show
Inspired by Cirque du Soleil, Swift brings her storytelling to stylish new heights with her latest show
With aerialists, dancers, rainbow-colored glow sticks for the audience and nine fantastic costume changes, Taylor Swift's Speak Now
tour, which kicked off with a May 21 dress rehearsal turned benefit in Nashville that raised more than $750,000 for tornado victims, "is all about portraying songs like I see them in my head," Swift tells Scoop. "With all the pyro and lighting I've always wanted on tour, it's like a dream come true."
KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
Marchesa created this custom steel-blue dress for Swift, who says she loves the way the chiffon dances around the piano bench.
This "giant, sparkling" Valentino (right) is Swift's "favorite dress ever," but all her outfits allow for easy movement.
HOW TO LOSE A MAN IN FOUR WAYS
CBS's Two and a Half Men
returns this fall without Charlie Sheen
as fun-loving hound Charlie Harper and with Ashton Kutcher
coming on board as a new character. How will creator Chuck Lorre introduce Kutcher? We have some ideas. . . .
THE DALLAS SCENARIO
In the first episode of the new season, Alan (Jon Cryer) wakes up, steps into the shower and is startled to find Ashton there, already lathered up. Smells like a classic!
THE HARRY POTTER SCENARIO
An owl brings a letter from Hogwarts with news that Charlie has been hired as a warlock. The owl magically transforms into Ashton-a nocturnal creature, like Charlie, only he eats mice.
THE OPRAH SCENARIO
Charlie, inspired by Oprah but in the wrong direction, has left to start a cable channel devoted to womanizing and tiger blood. Ashton is Alan's new housemate, curiously named Stedman.
THE LOST SCENARIO
Alan and his son wake up on a Charlie-free desert island. They meet another castaway, Ashton, who eventually leads them to a second island, ruled by Demi Moore
and-that'll start Season 2!
LIVE LARGE LIKE LA LIZ
The Bel Air house Elizabeth Taylor called home for 30 years until her death March 23 has hit the market for $8.6 million. According to Mossler Properties, the 7,000-sq.-ft. hilltop spread boasts a master suite with walls upholstered in her signature violet, a spa tub and a dressing room. Only prequalified buyers need apply.
STROLLER BOUND Fergie
says she and husband Josh Duhamel
are ready to start a family. "Not right this second...but yeah," she told Hollyscoop. DOPING ALLEGATIONS Lance Armstrong's former teammate Tyler Hamilton told 60 Minutes
he saw the cycling champ take performance-enhancing drugs-a charge Armstrong disputes. HONEYMOON'S OVER Prince William
and Kate Middleton
are back from a "memorable" 10-day vacation in the Seychelles. ENGAGEMENT OFF? Emily Maynard has been spotted without the engagement ring she accepted from Bachelor Brad Womack.
