In fact, Kris is already being linked to a couple of younger men. Some say she's trying to sink her claws into Ben Flajnik from "The Bachelor". Word is he and the 31-year-old have been, quote, "spending a lot of time together." She even Tweeted a picture of herself with Ben at his vineyard a few weeks ago.
More recently, Kris was spotted out with BRITNEY SPEARS' ex-boyfriend and manager, Jason Trawick, leading to rumors about those two maybe, possibly sharing body fluids. (PHOTO)

MOZEL TOV! HAYDEN PANETTIERE ANNOUNCES ENGAGEMENT ON TV: HAYDEN PANETTIER is engaged to her world heavyweight champion boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko! Wearing a massive boa constrictor on yesterday's (Wednesday) "Live With Kelly & Michael", Hayden couldn’t distract Kelly Ripa from noticing a crater-sized diamond engagement ring on her left ring finger.
“I’m not sure if you want to announce anything…does that signify anything, is that a promise or something?” Kelly asked. At first Hayden would only say, “I mean, I think it speaks for itself,” but when Ripa asked point blank if Hayden was indeed engaged to the boxer boyfriend, she finally admitted, “I am!” Hayden says the couple has yet to set a date, because she’s too busy filming her ABC series, "Nashville".

RIHANNA TRIGGERS CONTROVERSY OVER NAZI COMPARISON: RIHANNA is catching some heat over comments she made comparing paparazzi in New Zealand to Nazis. Earlier this week she posted a photograph taken by a photographer of herself in the window of her hotel room wearing nothing but a towel with the caption: “I hate these N**gaz more than the Nazi.”
The caption caused some of her fans to comment, including one fan who wrote: “You hate some people who snap a few photos more than people who killed six million.” Another wrote: “When you’re standing in the window in the view of people, don’t blame paparazzi for doing their job. Quit being a brat.”
TODAY IN SHIRTLESS CELEBRITIES: USHER is on the cover of the new "Men's Health," but it’s inside the pages of the mag that we get a real good look at his toned, shirtless body. Makes me wanna say ‘oh my God’! See what I did there? That’s a lyric from his song “OMG”! No, you shut up!

COULD BE TRUE, COULD BE CRAP - JESSICA SIMPSON FIRING FEMALE EMPLOYEES SO FIANCE WON'T BE TEMPTED TO CHEAT: After several years together and two kids, JESSICA SIMPSON still doesn't trust fiancé ERIC JOHNSON. At least that's what the not-always-reliabe "Star" tabloid claims.
They’ve got sources telling them Jessie is so worried about Eric cheating that she's been firing female staff members so he won't be tempted.
One source is quoted as saying, "Jessica is away a lot for work, so that leaves Eric at home with the kids and staff. She doesn't want him to have any pretty girls around. She even let go of a longtime employee and family friend because she feared Eric was flirting too much."
The self-proclaimed rumor-busting website Gossip Cop pooh-poohs the claim, citing “an actual source close to the couple” who tells them the report is “not true.”

The National Enquirer reports that 42-year-old Swedish-born ballerina Caroline Lindqvist, who is due in January, isn’t exactly a free woman. She is technically still married to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ritu Chopra, although they’ve been separated for more than a year.
