Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Are Demi and Ashton Getting Back Together?
She finally changed her twitter handle to @JustDemi but Demi Moore still seems to be holding off on actually filing for divorce from Ashton Kutcher and there may be a good reason why. It seems friends of the couple think that we may yet see a reconciliation.  The pair met up recently at a Kabbalah dinner to celebrate the birthday of Rabbi Yehuda Berg, who officiated at their wedding, and when they spotted each other they embraced tenderly. ‘Demi went over to wish Yehuda a happy birthday and Ashton was right by him. Yehuda left them to talk. They started to chat and were extremely affectionate. She was staring at him like a lovesick puppy,’ the source told the Sunday Mirror. Ashton, who was giving a speech at the dinner, recounted what a difficult year it had been for him saying: ‘I’ve made all these horrendous mistakes in the last year.’ Sources at the event told the publication that Ashton broke down. ‘Ashton’s voice started to break as he spoke. He just fell into tears. He sat down to a round of applause while Demi just looked frozen.’ The couple, who announced in November last year they were to divorce have yet to start the proceedings. ‘They are still desperately in love and could be on for a reconciliation,’ a source said. ‘The divorce isn’t being processed right now.’ And it seems that Demi may be thinking about second chances too as she has posted some cryptic remarks on twitter including ‘This seems a fitting thought: When your mind says give up, hope whispers one more try’ and retweeting rapper Wiz Khalifa which read: ‘We all make mistakes. Don’t let that be the reason you give up on somebody, ‘and  The Love Stories: ‘Sometimes you have to love people from a distance and give them a space and time to get their minds right’.

Britney Spears Jason TrewickBritney gets support from all sides
Jason Trawick has publicly declared just how proud he is of fiancée Britney Spears after her debut for the auditions of US X Factor. The former agent uploaded a video onto the internet where he filmed himself saying: ‘Princess, we just completed our first weekend in Austin [Texas] on X Factor. Just wanted to say I’m very proud of you and I love you so much. Congratulations. Now get back in here so we can go to sleep.’ He then signed off with a kiss. It seems that with Jason’s love and guidance, he is also co-conservator with Britney’s father for her financial management, Britney is getting back onto the straight and narrow. This comes after there were rumours that Britney stormed out during filming of  the auditions of X Factor. It was said that she was tired of Simon Cowell shooting down the acts that she likes. However Cowell, and her fellow judges have shot this rumour down. When asked about the incident, Cowell retorted: ‘No, that was Demi.’ Lovato went with it saying: ‘I was like, you know, tired of Simon, so ” had to just, like, go,'” she said, switching into an English accent for that last bit. ‘I’m not Australian,’ Cowell quipped back. ‘Whatever,’ she said, jokingly. But all joking aside Cowell addressed the question at hand saying: ‘There was no walking off. We have breaks every 5 or 6 songs. You can go have a cigarette, you can go to the loo. So as soon as anyone left their chairs, it was reported… that someone had left the show—and they hadn’t!’ Just as well, we can’t wait to see her when the show is televised!

Jessica AlbaJess felt ‘objectified’ when starting out
Jessica Alba has opened up about her time on Dark Angel saying that she felt that they took advantage of her tender age and objectified her. ‘I had a show [‘Dark Angel’] that premiered when I was 19,’ Jessica told Marie Claire Magazine. ‘And right away, everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of the way I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That’s what people expected…I felt like I was being objectified, and it made me uncomfortable. I wanted to be chic and elegant!’ she added. The actress, who did a fashion shoot for the interview in the magazine, went on to say:’‘Now that I’m older, I’ve learned how to own it, but I’m still not very overt. There are some women who dress for men. I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here.’ Jessica, who has made a name for herself with bikini and fashion shoots, did admit that while she likes the attention when people are praising her fashion choices, she tries to avoid negative remarks.  ‘I like to get positive attention,’ she admits. ‘But if I have a choice between someone noticing in a negative way what I’m wearing and going, “What was she thinking?” or someone not noticing what I’m wearing, I would rather not make a statement at all and just have a good conversation instead.”‘ Wouldn’t we all…

Will’s dating rules for Willow
It is hard for dads seeing their little girls grow up but when your family is in the public and eye and you know what goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood, it must be all the harder. Will Smith is already struggling with the idea that 11-year-old daughter Willow may soon have boys knocking on the door and asking her out on dates. ‘It’s coming,’ he said in an interview with People Magazine, ‘and I’m nervous about it. Having two boys and a girl, I realize that boys take trouble to other people’s houses, and girls bring it home,’ he said. ‘So, the thing we are struggling with is the rules and setting fair rules for the boys and for Willow, but she’s not having any of that.’ Rather than accept the inevitable, it seems that Will has found a more unrealistic way of dealing with the idea of Willow dating. ‘When Willow does bring a boy home, I’m going to screen him and find out everything about him,’ he vows. ‘And that’s going to happen when she’s 40, when she’s allowed to go on dates!’ And if that doesn’t work he could always pull one of his Men In Black props on her prospective date!

Guess Who – Secret Gossip
[EOnline] Have we mentioned that Chiquita is, well, bananas? If her using her man-trapping nether regions to sleep her way to the top (or at least to primetime) or that outrageous diva ‘tude (seriously, who does this broad think she is?) wasn’t enough to convince you, well, maybe you’re just as kooky as Chicky is! Which means you’ll love her latest party trick: Not only does Chiquita make it a habit to hook up with at least one costar per party, natch, but she’s taken to a stripping routine of sorts. At a recent A-list fête attended by our brassy babe and her coworkers, partygoers were left shocked when Chiquita cut a line for the bathroom and disappeared inside. Well, the cutting wasn’t actually what had jaws dropping—Chiquita is way too famous to wait in lines, of course—it was what she revealed when she left the powder room. Which was her lingerie. Yep, Chiquita hit the bathroom, stripped off some clothing and returned to the party in her hot pants like it was totally normal. And that’s how she entertained for the rest of the evening: in her pseudo-birthday suit. On second thought, guess I’m not too surprised. She’s always been more likely to bare her body than her soul. AND IT AIN’T: Blake Lively, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Emily VanCamp
