Biel vs. Alba: Which Jessica Dress Cost Less

Biel vs. Alba: Which Jessica Dress Cost Less   
and Jessica Biel have more in common than just their first names. They also share a love for romantic ruffled frocks.

Biel rocked a full-on frilly Oscar de la Renta one-shoulder
gown at the premiere of Valentine's Day in L.A. back in February, while, Alba opted for an elegant and asymmetrical Valentino number at the designer's Haute Couture afterparty in France earlier this month.

Both brunette babes looked ravishing in ruffles, but can you guess which star spent almost $7,500 for her look?

Bristol Palin Ends Engagement to Levi After Ex Drama

Bristol Palin Ends Engagement to Levi After Ex Drama
Ex marks the breakup spot for Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston.

The 19-year-old mom called off her second engagement to her baby daddy last week following a fight over one of his ex-girlfriends, a source close to the couple tells E! News.

They must have been on pretty shaky footing already, because the thorn in Bristol's side wasn't even the ex who turned up pregnant this week, but some other girl!

While Lanesia Garcia was outed by the National Enquirer as Levi's possible second baby mama, our source—along with Levi's lawyer—insists that Garcia herself has admitted that the Playgirl poser is not the father of her unborn child.

"Lanesia and Levi have dated off and on over the past few years but he's not the father of that baby," says the source. "Lanesia's other ex boyfriend is the father. She's not the reason [Bristol and Levi] broke it off."

Instead, it was Levi's other ex, Briana Plum, who put a hitch in Bristol's wedding plans.

"There was an interview with her and Bristol wasn't happy about some of the things said," the source tells E! News. "There was also some picture on Facebook of him and Briana and Bristol just said, ‘Let's hold off on the engagement.' "

Neither Paln nor Johnston have publicly commented on their latest split.

The parents of 19-month-old Tripp landed on the cover of Us Weekly last month with news of their rekindled romance and there was even talk about shopping a reality show featuring their young family.

Well, all that was never well probably won't end well the second time, eithe

2010 TV's Five Biggest Casting Shockers

 TV's Five Biggest Casting Shockers

Jennifer Lopez an American Idol judge?! Steven Tyler, too?!

Has there ever been anything as shocking in the history of shocking?!

Well, yeah, actually. Cue the rundown of TV's biggest surprise casting moves:

1. Ellen DeGeneres an American Idol judge?! Was it only last year that the comic came out—of left field, that is? Sure, we knew she liked to dance. But who knew she liked to dance around the fragile egos of budding singers? (Well, as her departure now tells us, she didn't, but still…)

2. Robert Downey Jr. on Saturday Night Live?! The future Iron Man was but a maleable 20 when he joined the sketch show in 1985. At the time, he wasn't known for much other than being an off-lead in Weird Science. He was as random a hire in that strange, strange season as the 17-year-old Anthony Michael Hall, who was a lead in Weird Science, or Randy Quaid, who was freakin' Randy Quaid.

3. Marlee Matlin on Dancing With the Stars?! This show's managed some great headline-making hires: Kate Gosselin, Cloris Leachman and Marie Osmond come to mind. But giving the hearing-impaired Matlin the chance to prove she can keep a beat? Even more brilliant and surprising than when DWTS gave the one-legged Heather Mills the chance to prove she's not nearly as unpleasant as her split from Paul McCartney suggested!

4. The New Darrin on Bewitched?!  No explanation, no wink to the camera, no plastic-surgery plot. The classic sitcom wrote the book on shockaroos—and switcharoos—by plopping Dick Sargent into the TV marital bed where Dick York once slept. Something to remember: Only we think this is shocking behavior; back in the 1960s, nobody much noticed.

5. Linda Hamilton on Chuck?! OK, we admit this one's here because we're distracted by bright, shiny and, above all, new objects. The Comic-Con announcement that the Terminator warrior has been cast to play Chuck's mother shocked us by its pitch-perfectness. All surprises should be so happy.

Snooki Face-Plants on Sand, Police Not Enthused

 Snooki Face-Plants on Sand, Police Not Enthused

The MTV star found herself getting hauled off in handcuffs by Seaside Heights' Finest for drunk and disorderly conduct Friday after passing out during a marathon bout of afternoon partying on the boardwalk, E! News confirmed.
The artiste otherwise known as Nicole Polizzi had spent the day with her Shore pals shooting on location.
"They were in here this morning filming," says an employee at  E J's Dance Club. "She seemed OK then."
But somewhere along the line, things went from OK to unstable.
"She was passed out face down in the sand," says another eyewitness of Snooki's face-plant.
"She couldn't even stand up. She was on her knees and kept falling on the beach. People were laughing and taking pictures of her before the cops arrested her."
The Seaside Heights Police Department said that she was transported to police headquarters and released after being issued a summons to appear in court.
"On my way to free snooki!!," tweeted Jenni "JWoww" Farley. "We need to hold a candlelight vigil outside the police station!"
Such camaraderie. MTV must be so proud
