Scarlett Johansson 'smitten' with Sean Penn -- Us

With apologies to all the guys who thought they might finally get a chance with Scarlett Johansson after the actress announced a split from husband Ryan Reynolds in December, I regret to inform you that Jeff Spicoli -- aka actor activist Sean Penn -- has already beaten you to the punch. According to Us, Penn and Johansson met when she was staying at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont and bonded over a mutual desire to help Haitian earthquake victims and, doubtless, being fabulous. "Scarlett first reached to Sean when she was planning to visit Haiti with Oxfam," said Us's source. "She knew Sean was living their [sic] in a tent and turned to him for advice." While it's true that there's nothing quite as irresistable as a middle-aged tobacco-stained Jeff Spicoli living in a tent, we hope ScarJo is well aware of Penn's recent split from wife of 14 years, Robin...

Ashlee Simpson files for divorce from Pete Wentz

The one who flubbed up her lip-synching performance on "SNL" back in 2004, disappeared, then resurfaced in 2006 with a trim new nose. Not ringing a bell? Perhaps you remember her for her short stint on the CW's "Melrose Place" reboot. No? Well, anyway, today Simpson filed for divorce from husband of two years Pete Wentz. You'll surely remember Wentz as The Guy Married to Ashlee Simpson, because we're pretty sure you don't remember him as the bassist of so-so indie rock band Fall Out Boy. According to TMZ, there's no prenup in place and Simpson is asking for spousal and child support in addition to primary physical custody of the couple's son, 2-year-old Bronx Mowgli. Source: TMZ...

Jude Law and Sienna Miller split ... again

Law and Miller in 2004. (AP) We were so pulling for Jude Law and Sienna Miller this time around. I mean, she must really have loved the guy -- taking him back after all that unfortunate nanny business and whatnot. But, alas, the couple is not destined for eternal togetherness. According to a spokesperson for Miller, the actress and Law are "no longer in a relationship." Perhaps it's because we never invented an affectionate portmanteau for them. You know "Jienna" or "Liller" or "Maw." "It is mutual and amicable and they are still friends," a friend of the actors told People. Maybe Miller never could quite get over the whole nanny thing. In 2005, Law admitted to having an affair with his childrens' nanny (he has three children with ex Sadie Frost). Or perhaps she wasn't all that comfortable with Law fathering a child with model Samantha Burke in...

Jesse James and Kat Von D engaged

(Getty Images) Remember Jesse James, the husband who stepped out on Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock with a possibly Nazi-sympathizing tattooed model? Yeah, well, he's engaged. The lucky lady is none other than TLC tattoo queen Kat Von D. In a statement to People, James said: "You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs. I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f----n' blast!" In March, James publicly apologized to Bullock for his "poor judgment" after it surfaced...

Reese Witherspoon engaged to Jim Toth

Reese Witherspoon. (Getty Images) Natalie Portman isn't the only celeb celebrating a new engagement. A rep for Reese Witherspoon confirmed to Us Weekly that the Oscar-winning actress is engaged to Jim Toth -- the Hollywood agent she's been dating since January. Witherspoon previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal (who has since moved on to drinking coffee in Brooklyn with Taylor Swift). She also has two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. Source: Us Weekly...

Who is Candice Crawford?

Tony Romo and Candice Crawford at Dallas Mavericks game in April. (AP) Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, notable here for being Jessica Simpson's one-time beau, is engaged. According to Us, Romo is engaged to Candice Crawford -- a one-time Miss Missouri and graduate of the University of Missouri who is currently a sports reporter for Dallas TV station KDAF-TV. She's also the sister of "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford. The two have been dating for a little over a year and Romo apparently proposed on Thursday -- coincidentally Crawford's 24th birthday. Crawford hasn't updated her Twitter page since mid-November. No word yet on Jessica Simpson's reaction. We'll keep a close eye on her Twitter feed, too. We should add that Simpson herself became engaged to boyfriend Eric Johnson in November. And, coincidentally, Simpson ex-husband Nick Lachey is also headed for matrimony: earlier in November, he and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo...
