In an apparent attempt to lengthen his 15 minutes of fame, Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, Ojani Noa, has just announced that he plans to audition for American Idol.  Ironically, this revelation came immediately after J.Lo was named an Idol judge on the hit show.  According to E! Online, Noa is intent on singing one of Lopez’s songs in front of the judges after hours of standing in line with the other contestants at the Forum on Sept. 22.  Awkward is probably the best word to describe this post-split meeting between the former couple.

How should you handle a vengeful ex?

When Star Magazine recently ran an article claiming that actor Ashton Kutcher cheated on his wife of five years, Demi Moore, things got heated.  Kutcher’s lawyer, Marty Singer, recently released a statement to Us Weekly saying, “Star Magazine continuously publishes lies about Ashton Kutcher and many other celebrities.  This is not the first, nor will it be the last time they engage in reckless conduct.”  The article in question featured a quote from a 21-year-old, who said she “made love on his living room couch while Demi was out of town.”  Kutcher had faced previous accusations from Star Magazine.  At the beginning of the month Star reported that Kutcher had a brief flame with a “a sexy, young, 20-something.”  Kutcher took to his Twitter page to protest the accusations.  He tweeted, “I think Star magazine calling me a ‘cheater’ qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees.  STAR magazine – you don’t get to stand behind ‘freedom of the press’ when you are writing fiction.”What do you do if you’re faced with rumors that your partner is cheating?

Reality TV star The Situation has officially laced up his dancing shoes for a stint on Dancing With the Stars this season, and the “lucky” professional dancer paired with him is Karina Smirnoff.  The question is, is there a hook-up coming?  According to E! Online, fellow cast members of the reality TV show Jersey Shore don’t support the idea of a celebrity hook-up between the dancing duo-for Smirnoff’s sake.  “She’s too good for him,” said Snooki.  “She’s smart. She won’t even go there.”  JWOWW agrees, adding  “Karina’s a woman. She needs to stay a woman.  She’s not a Jersey Shore girl.”  On the other hand, Vinny is a bit more supportive explaining, “If he gets that, I’ll give props to him.”

For reality TV star The Situation, his friends aren’t supportive of a celebrity hook-up with Smirnoff. What do you do if your friends put you down in front of someone you like?

Ryan Reynolds may be happy with his marriage to Scarlett Johnansson, but he isn’t a fan of his relationship being dissected by the tabloids.  In a recent interview with GQ, Reynolds discussed his views on marriage and privacy.  The actor, who married Johansson two years ago, explained, “Things change when you get married in general.  But in terms of being a couple that’s in a public situation and speculated about and all that nonsense, it’s changed a little bit.  I’m a little more guarded, I think.  I’m a little bit more wary of having my relationship turning into a soap opera.  I’ve just unilaterally not addressed it.  That’s kind of been the fail-safe for me … I choose to remain as private as possible without being secretive.”  Reynolds went on to say that though he and his wife deal with many rumors, marriage is still “the best part of [his] life.”What things should be kept private in a relationship?

Well, the MTV Video Music Awards have come and gone yet again, and the celebs in attendance this year didn’t disappoint!  Some of the more notable duos walking the white carpet this year were Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez, Usher & Justin Bieber, Jersey Shore‘s Ronnie & Vinnie and Stephanie Pratt & Lo Bosworth, according to Hollywood Life.  And, of course, there was the much-anticipated awards show participants Taylor Swift and Kanye West.  After last year’s debacle where West barged on stage during Swift’s acceptance speech, he was on his best behavior.  The two stars separately sang two brand new songs addressing last year’s event, “like a pair of dueling attorneys making closing statements in front of a jury,” according to Tris McCall at the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

Giulia Melucci Talks ‘I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti’

Cupid's Pulse Article: Giulia Melucci Talks ‘I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti’

By Stacey Small

Lovers, losers, and a whole lot of linguine are at the forefront of Giulia Melucci’s new memoir, I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti.  Whether a kindhearted alcoholic, a novelist with a Peter Pan Complex (there were two!), or the classic commitment-fearing Manhattanite, Giulia has been courted by, cried over, and has cooked for them all.  But this woman’s tale is far from woeful. After each romantic letdown, she recovers by indulging herself in the comforting concoction of a good cry and a bowl of pastina.  Recipe–along with a heap of other delectable dishes–included.  Melucci’s I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti is a personable, at times laugh out loud adventure of a strong woman who knows the importance of nourishing her stomach, and even her soul, no matter how many times her romantic flames fizzle faster than what’s cooking on the stove.

What is the number one thing you should do to attract the right partner?

MTV’s hit series Jersey Shore premiered its second season last Thursday, and it’s already seen its share of hookups.  The cast uses the term “creeping,” which basically means picking up girls with the intention of a late night hook-up – and nothing else.  In reference to his desire to leave New Jersey for the winter in favor of sunny Miami, Pauly D said, “You can’t creep in this weather.  You can’t do anything.  Girls don’t come out in this weather.  They stay in the house.”  Later in the episode, Vinny vowed that he would hook up with 60 different girls in 60 days, telling the camera that if he misses one day, he’ll simply double up on the next.  The newly single Ronnie took creeping to the next level, letting loose in a nightclub upon arriving in Miami.

The casual hookup is not for everyone. But if no one gets hurt, should people get it out of their system while they are still young?
