Rush Limbaugh, who recently ran into some trouble for possession of unauthorized Viagra, has been dating actress Mary-Lynn Rajskub, better known as Chloe from 24.
Tongues were set wagging after photographs were taken of Limbaugh affectionately kissing Rajskub during a recent event at the Heritage Foundation. Rajskub, who in the past has been romantically linked to the decidedly liberal likes of David Cross and Jon Brion, is as odd of a match for Rush as one could likely make.

Hootie & the Blowfish will launch a 10-city concert series Monday in Nashville to help collect school supplies for children.
Ticketholders are encouraged to bring school supplies to shows in the Homegrown Concert series. The supplies will be donated to each community's public school system.
In each city, a business or organization will make a donation to the schools. In Nashville, the Hard Rock Cafe will donate $5,000 to LP Pencil Box, a school supply center where teachers can get supplies for students who can't afford them. The group started the event in Charleston, S.C., in 2003, and the next year expanded it to other cities in the Carolinas. This year, they're visiting cities in Pennsylvania, Texas, Alabama and Florida.
Hootie & the Blowfish's hits include "Hold My Hand," "Only Wanna Be With You" and "Let Her Cry." The band's latest album is "Looking for Lucky."

Tori Spelling told People she had a "reconciliation" with her TV mogul-dad Aaron just before the stroke that led to his death. B
ut Canadian gossip Shinan Govani says the claim seems odd because the blond heiress-actress had been in Toronto all week "doing nonstop media for her reality show, picking more fights with [her husband's ex-wife] Mary Jo Eustace, and was spied here until at least Friday afternoon." Aaron died Friday night.
Among the places Tori was seen was at a local Starbucks, a popular pub called Betty's, and the Four Seasons Hotel.

Nicole Kidman wasn't married to Tom Cruise...at least according to the Catholic Church in Australia.
Many around the world were scratching their heads this past weekend, trying to figure out exactly how Kidman was able to get married as a Catholic in a Catholic ceremony, as the Church does not allow for a second marriage (in the Church) after a divorce. Many assumed that Kidman had gotten her marriage to Tom Cruise annulled, which would technically have paved the way for a second marriage in the Church.
Well, not so fast. Kidman's marriage to Cruise lasted 10 years -- a little long to plead temporary insanity -- and considering how notoriously difficult it is to have the Church grant an annulment (they're not handing them out like communion wafers), Kidman may have figured out how to get around the requirement -- she reportedly didn't need an annulment at all.
The BBC is reporting that Kidman's 10-year union to Cruise wasn't recognized by the Catholic Church of Australia. The service was seen only as a legal ceremony and not a spiritual one. In other words, according to the Catholic Church anyway, it never happened. All Kidman had to prove was that it was dissolved legally and she was free to marry any country crooner she wanted. A loophole to be sure, but one that allowed Kidman to reconnect her Catholic faith with Keith Urban, the man she loves.
Ashlee Simpson has turned down a $4 million offer to pose for Playboy.
In Touch Weekly first reported the offer, and said the pop star was considering it. TMZ spoke with Rob Shuter, Ashlee's publicist, who confirmed that Ashlee did indeed receive an offer to pose in the legendary men's mag -- but turned it down.
A source close to Ashlee told TMZ the offer was big -- $4 million to be exact. A newly glammed Simpson is currently on tour promoting her recent album, "I Am Me."
7th Heaven actress Katie Cassidy, 19, has beaten out Jessica Simpson and Kristin Cavallari for the role that they were both up for in the new Dallas movie (also starring J. Lo and John Travoltas enormous head). Cassidy, who is the daughter of former teen idol David Cassidy and most recently starred in the film Click, will play the character Lucy Ewing.
Producers wanted to steer clear of the drama and also thought Katie was simply better for the role, a source tells Us Weekly.
Jennifer Lopez, who has been cast as alcoholic Sue Ellen, reportedly didnt want Simpson, 25, as a costar in the upcoming big-screen version of the television series. Shes hoping for a no-name actress [to play wild Lucy Ewing], a source told Us in May. Jennifer doesnt want a diva on the set. (Lopezs rep could not be reached for comment.)
Even the original Lucy, Charlene Tilton, 47, didnt want to see Simpson in the role, preferring 19-year-old Lindsay Lohan instead. Jessica is beautiful but too old, said Tilton. I had just turned 17 when we started filming. Its more exciting if Lucy is doing all of these things out of high school. [Lindsay Lohan] is a great choice.

John McEnroe once hurled tennis rackets because he lost his temper - now it's strictly for profit.
"I get paid to do that now. That is what they want me to do on the seniors' tours," McEnroe told the London Times at Wimbledon. "In some ways, it's obviously pathetic; in some ways, ironic; and in some ways, funny." Less funny to some fuddy-duddies is when he drops his trousers and moons his opponent.

Victoria Beckham reportedly lost 6lbs from her already skinny frame before flying to Germany for the World Cup.
The brunette - who is married to football ace David Beckham - is said to have eaten only sushi and pineapple in a bid to shed the weight in time to watch her husband play. The slim star's weight loss has sparked fears for her health.
A source from the hotel where Victoria is staying told Britain's The People newspaper: "Victoria's wasting away and there is nothing we can do about it. Although she is undoubtedly one of the sexiest women in the world her arms and legs look very thin. "Sometimes she looks so thin you worry she might snap in two."
Another source said the former Spice Girl is conscious of her eating habits and often skips meals with the partners of the England football team to eat with her three sons. The insider said: "She hates people looking at her eating and probably feels uncomfortable because she knows people are always talking about her weight. "While the girls order chips and burgers whenever they get the munchies in the hotel, Victoria sticks to green vegetables, raw fish and fruit."
The source added: "Victoria even admitted she'd lost 6lbs before even flying over."

Star Jones Reynolds announced Tuesday morning on The View that she'll be leaving the show in July after nine years as a cohost.
"Something's been on my heart for a little bit, and after much prayer and counsel I feel like this is the right time to tell you that the show is moving in another direction for its tenth season and I will not be returning as cohost next year," she said on the air.
"That's shocking to me," interrupted Joy Behar, prompting Jones Reynolds to link hands with her cohosts. As for where she'll go next Jones Reynolds said, "I'm not sure what the future holds, but I'm absolutely sure who holds the future."
The show's creator, Barbara Walters, wrapped up the discussion by saying, "It is a new chapter for Star. It will be a new chapter for The View in the fall."
So why is Jones Reynolds leaving? Contrary to speculation that she's unhappy about the upcoming addition of Rosie O'Donnell one of her most vocal critics to the show this fall, she reveals that the departure was not her choice. "What you don't know is that my contract was not renewed for the tenth season," she said. "I feel like I was fired." She adds that she was told her contract wouldn't be renewed just days before news leaked that O'Donnell would be joining The View.
If the French love Jerry Lewis, and David Hasselhoff is huge in Germany, where does that leave Michael Jackson? We're going to find out.
A spokeswoman for the onetime King of Pop announced Tuesday that Jackson is tying up loose business ends and is planning a move to Europe to reignite a music career that has been languishing at the shallow end of the buzz pool.
"He's just decided that with all of the projects he's going to be involved with and all of the people he's beginning to work with in the music industry, it's easier [to live in Europe]," Jackson's rep, Raymone Bain, told Reuters. "He'll be going back and forth to Bahrain but Europe will be his principal residence." Visit for more:
This transcontinental shift is apparently only part of Jackson's plan to get back on his pioneering feet. He also has reshuffled his entourage, appointing Bain as general manager of the Michael Jackson Co. (which replaces MJJ Productions) and hiring L. Londell McMillan at the New York-based McMillan Firm to oversee his business-related legal matters. In the process, the Thriller singer cut ties with longtime accountants and business managers Bernstein, Fox, Whitman, Goldman & Sloan.
"He is very serious about his music," Bain told the Associated Press. "When you are a creative person and the creative juices are flowing again and you're about to embark upon new projects, you want to make sure your organization is running smoothly."

Naomi Campbell is being accused of less-than-model behavior again, this time by another of her maids who claims the supermodel hit her.
In a terse single-sheet filing in Manhattan's state Supreme Court, Gaby Gibson accused Campbell of "personal injuries," "employment discrimination," "civil assault," "civil battery" and other complaints.
Gibson, who filed the lawsuit on Monday, the eve of a Manhattan Criminal Court appearance by Campbell on charges of assaulting another maid, asks for "actual, compensatory and punitive" damages without specifying an amount.
The court document does not detail acts by Campbell, but in a published interview in April, Gibson said the catwalker hit her on Jan. 17, called her names and threatened to have her arrested. Gibson told the New York Post that Campbell got upset after being unable to find a specific pair of jeans.

Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose was arrested in Stockholm early Tuesday after allegedly biting a security guard in the leg outside his hotel, the Associated Press reports.
Rose was being held on suspicion of attacking and threatening the guard, as well as causing damage to the Berns Hotel where the alleged dust-up took place around 8 a.m., police spokesperson Towe Hagg told the AP.
The singer was intoxicated at the time of the confrontation, Haag said, and will face questioning after he sobers up. "He was deemed too intoxicated to be questioned right away," she said. A prosecutor will then decide whether to press charges.
It was not what started the fight, but Swedish tabloids said the guard attempted to step in when Rose, 44, began arguing with a woman in the hotel lobby.
After three years together, pop balladeer Josh Groban and actress January Jones (American Wedding) are "taking a break" from one another, his rep, Liz Rosenberg, stated.
Other than saying, "They remain friends," Rosenberg had no further comment. Jones's rep, Dominique Appel, also had no comment.
Jones, 28, was spotted this past weekend with Lukas Haas and other pals at the Light nightclub anniversary party in Las Vegas. Jones and Haas star in the new movie Swedish Auto, opening at the Los Angeles Film Festival this week.
The former Abercrombie & Fitch model who once dated Ashton Kutcher will next appear in the Matthew McConaughey film We Are Marshall, in which she plays the wife of Matthew Fox's character. Groban, 25, released his second studio album, Closer, in 2004 the same year he appeared in the Super Bowl half-time show. Unfortunately, his performance was upstaged by the antics of Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson.
He is currently back in the recording studio working on his latest CD, to be released this fall, says Rosenberg.
