Pete, his Pops, and his funky new tat were cruisin' through the San Fernando Valley when their wheels sputtered to a halt. He can hate 'em all he wants, but when Pete's in need, a papper's a friend indeed.
Also at the Palms: big sis Jessica Simpson, tiny thesp Vern Troyer, "A.I" loser Constantine Maroulis and Linda Hogan and her teen companion. Mr. Ashlee Simpson, Pete Wentz, spent his night on the turntables ... emo-style!
Ashlee must be so proud.
Holy unwed mothers!
23-year-old lip-synching queen Ashlee Simpson is carrying fiance Pete Wentz's baby, or so says Us. Does anyone practice safe sex anymore?!
Ashlee -- whose father is a former Baptist minister -- apparently didn't save herself for marriage like big sis Jessica... she gave it away for free!
Family values are alive and well in Tinseltown!
Also in L.A.: Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and McLovin' all blew off fans outside the Kodak Theater, Rumer Willis had her very own pap crush, Kevin Richardson was mistaken for another Backstreet Boy and Kim Kardashian got a public berating by her own sister.
In NY: Michelle Trachtenberg dodged questions about rumored BF Chace Crawford, Kiefer Sutherland went out with his new chick, and Ben Stiller struggled to remember the name of Derek Zoolander's infamous pose.
One of them is known to wear guyliner.
We're just sayin'!
In the NYC: Mel B hangs with her sketchy hubby, while Hayden Christensen gets dissed by photogs for Samuel L. Jackson. He's a bad mutha!
In New York: Colin Farrell divulged his knowledge on the great beers of the world -- and a preggers J-Lo showed off her Nicole Richie bugeyed glasses.
All this and more in today's "Loath in an Elevator" edition of Star Catcher!
Wentz, who will be performing at this weekend's VMAs in Las Vegas, was frisked by a guard after being singled out -- for some reason. Are the precociously adorable singled out for frisking?
Spencer's Five Point Plan to Rule the World
How has "Hills" Aryan supervillain Spencer Pratt managed to become a media phenomenon? Radar magazine thinks Pratt's got it down to a five point program. Bratty Pratt's master plan? Up your TV air time by becoming a controversial character. Then convince another show's star -- Heidi -- to settle down with you and -- then take over every aspect of her life. Next, start a public war with another one of the show's stars -- Lauren. Step four: Diss and drop your former BFF. Said Spencer of former friend Brody Jenner, "It's like Bush and Cheney, and you wouldn't see Cheney rolling with Bin Laden in the club." It might be good for Pratt to go to Afghanistan and see if he can roll with Bin Laden -- in the club.
And finally, if all else fails -- and hopefully, it will -- play the grandma card. Spencer says his grandma "wears a button with my face on it that says 'I'm Spencer Pratt's grandma.'" Poor woman!
Party Favors...Ed Harris Freaks Out ...
"Apollo 13" actor Ed Harris had a hissy fit at Heathrow Airport when he was asked to empty his pockets at a security checkpoint, reports the London Sun. He was then "held for hours by police for trying to take a knife onto a plane." Pointedly stupid.
