Even though Hulk Hogan confessed to an extramarital affair earlier this year, his daughter Brooke Hogan claims the former pro-wrestler has never been one to sleep around.
“My dad is really into his new girlfriend Jennifer — she is awesome,” Brooke told Pop Tarts. “Things are pretty serious between them — my father isn’t the type to jump around from girl to girl. He’s always been a very monogamous creature.”
The 20-year-old reality starlet is soaking up the success of her hit spin-off show “Brooke Knows Best," which made VH1 history with its high ratings (averaging around 1.5 million viewers per episode, according to Nielsen Media Research).
Sources close to the Hogan family told Pop Tarts that Brooke and Hulk are now closer than ever, but the beachside blonde is still struggling to forgive her mother, Linda, for the family falling apart.
“I just have to constantly surround myself with friends — you don’t need drugs to get through the hard times when you have people that make you laugh,” Brooke added. “They make light of all my bad situations. When my parents divorced, my friends were all like ‘hey, at least you can move out now.'"
Jennifer Garner Shows Off Her Baby Belly; Christina Ricci Sets Rumors Straight
The world-famous Kodak Theater was almost as saturated with stars as it is on Oscars night as Hollywood's hottest stepped out to work the phones for the "Stand Up to Cancer" telethon.
Sporting a tiny baby belly, Jennifer Garner looked every inch her stunning self, as did the likes of Mandy Moore, America Ferrera, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Katie Couric and Ellen DeGeneres.
"Twenty-three years ago (at just 24), I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia," an emotional Evan Handler, who played Harry on "Sex and the City," told Pop Tarts. "Anger is what got me through it — I was so angry I just wanted to survive."
"Little Miss Sunshine" kid star Abigail Breslin also had someone special on her mind.
“My shirt says 'In memory of Grandpa Larry,'" she said, pointing to the handwritten blurb across her chest. "He had cancer a couple of years ago and he passed from it, but we still miss him.”
Rob Lowe also came out to support the cause.
"I'm great; life is great," he enthused. "Work let me go for 15 minutes so I could come and support this important cause. But everything is going well."
Oh, and just in case you've read reports that Christina Ricci is getting ready to play an eating-disorder counselor in an upcoming flick or that she's planning a real-life career change into the counseling industry, the starlet set the record straight.
"It's all lies — none of it is true," Ricci told Pop Tarts. "I have no idea where that came from."
The mammoth fundraising initiative raised more than $100 million to accelerate groundbreaking research and bring new therapies to cancer patients more quickly.
Pussycat Dolls Getting Ready to Part Ways?
Even with 7 million album sales under their spandex, the Pussycat Dolls are set on being solo songstresses.
"It's what we've been waiting for," Kimberly told the October issue of Blender magazine, which hits the stands on Tuesday. "We all want individual success."
Last year, fellow member Nicole Scherzinger was ready to release her first debut record, but after her two singles flopped, she was shelved.
"I decided to hold off," Nicole said, although that decision probably wasn't in her control. The Dolls also told the mag that on top of personal appearances, parties, performing and recording, their daily regime involves consultations with their very own "love guru" humanitarian and spiritualist from South India who issues them with hugs in times of need.
And while most men probably do wish their girlfriends were as hot as the Pussycat Dolls, their slammin' sexiness doesn't come without dedication.
“We work really, really hard,” the Dolls told Tarts. “We have a partnership with Bally’s Fitness and we have really structured, balanced meals. It’s important for us to stay motivated and have everything in moderation.”
Vanessa Hudgens and Miley Cyrus Cause Chaos
While all eyes and ears were on the MTV Video Music Awards in Hollywood, Vanessa Hudgens and Hayden Panettiere were causing just as much chaos at the free Neutrogena concert in Santa Monica on Sunday afternoon.
'Ness performed songs from her latest album and was cheered on by the “Heroes” hottie and a record-breaking number of screaming girls.
But across the coast at New York’s annual Fashion Rocks fundraiser on Friday, Hudgens' fellow Disney dame Miley Cyrus was movin’ and shakin’ in more places than just the stage. Pop Tarts spies spotted Cyrus and her mom come charging through the 1OAK greenroom for a quick costume change, but in the process almost knocked out two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank.
