Greg Tidwell/PacificCoastNews.comSPW/Splash NewsThere have been reports over the past few months that Rihanna has reconciled with Chris Brown, the boyfriend who beat her so badly in February 2009 that she had to be hospitalized for multiple head contusions, a black eye, split lip, bites to her head and fingers, and a bloody nose. Although we hoped they were merely just rumors, sadly it looks like it may be true. On Monday night in Los Angeles, the "We Found Love" singer had an early birthday party (her actual birthday is February 20), which was attended by family and friends, including BFF Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Coldplay's Chris Martin … and Brown.Read More »from Chris Brown Attends Rihanna’s Birthday Party, Holds Her Hand in Front of Guests

Taylor Armstrong promoted her new book on Wednesday. (Jonathan Leibson/FilmMagic)When Taylor Armstrong made an appearance at an L.A. Barnes and Noble on Wednesday evening to sign copies of her new book, many of her "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" co-stars were on-hand, including Kyle Richards, Camille Grammer, and Adrienne Maloof. But one supporter in attendance raised eyebrows and concerns: Armstrong's five-year-old daughter, Kennedy. It's not that a book signing isn't the place for a child, it's just that the subject matter of the book seems a tad inappropriate for the little girl's ears. Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss and Finding the Courage Within chronicles the years of physical and emotional abuse her mother suffered at the hands of her own father, Russell Armstrong, who committed suicide last August.Read More »from Taylor Armstrong Brings Daughter to Book Signing

Fitness magazineRegaining your figure after giving birth is hard enough, but it's even more of a challenge if you carried twins -- and that's exactly what Rebecca Romijn was faced with after the December 2008 birth of daughters Dolly and Charlie. As a supermodel for over two decades, Romijn had never even dieted a day in her life, but after gaining 60 pounds during her pregnancy, the 39-year-old had to rethink her entire fitness routine -- and learn how to eat healthy. "Losing that weight was probably the hardest thing I've ever done in my life," Romijn tells the March issue of Fitness. "Everything I did before I got pregnant -- like Pilates, which I had done for about 14 years -- didn't work anymore. I had to change the way I worked out, the way I ate -- everything."Read More »from Rebecca Romijn: How I Lost 60 Pounds of Baby Weight

Valentine's Day was a family affair for Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. The couple spent the day with their two adorable kids -- Harlow, 4, and Sparrow, 2 -- at their daughter's L.A. school for a special holiday party. As Richie left holding her son's hand, she also carried a stack of Valentine's Day cards and heart-decorated bags filled with what appeared to be candy since both little ones were happily indulging in lollipops -- a rare sight considering Mommy doesn't allow sweets. "Sugar is obviously a big no-no," Richie has said. "No, no, no, definitely no Kool-Aid. There's no juice … My kids don't have dairy either."

Brown at Grammys. John Shearer/WireImageChris Brown must really want people to continue hating him. The R&B singer put his critics on blast Tuesday -- two days after he won Best R&B Album at the Grammys -- via a profane and incredibly insensitive tweet that was very quickly deleted from his account. "HATE ALL YOU WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now!" Brown wrote. "That's the ultimate F—K OFF!" This from a guy who completed court-ordered anger management classes after he savagely beat then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammys. But then again, Brown did also throw a tantrum — and a chair! -- in the green room at "Good Morning America" last March, so perhaps he should re-enroll in classes.Read More »from Chris Brown Blasts Critics Over Twitter
Chuck D and Flavor Flav of Public Enemy. Rebecca Sapp/WireImageNot many music groups stay together long enough to celebrate 25 years, but that's exactly what Public Enemy did Monday night — and they put on a sold-out concert at the Grammys Museum in Los Angeles in honor of their milestone. Led by Flavor Flav and Chuck D, the Long Island, New York-based hip-hop group worked their way through a string of their most notable songs from their 12 albums, including "Bring the Noise," "Fight the Power," "Don't Believe the Hype," and "Rebel Without a Pause."Read More »from Public Enemy Bring the Noise for 25th Anniversary

Kate Moss plays a bad girl in new W. Steven Klein/WAnd then, good Kate. Steven Klein/WRead More »from Kate Moss Balances Good and Evil for W Photo Shoot
Her face is one of the most famous in the modeling world, but Kate Moss is almost unrecognizable in the March issue of W. In dual covers, she embodies good (in lace Vera Wang with an Erdem "habit") and evil (in Gucci's silk georgette dress ). And strangely, she's missing her eyebrows in both of them. The accompanying 12-photo fashion spread, photographed by Steven Klein, is just as bizarre. In each photo, Moss is either decked out in white or black, depicting good or bad.

Talk about a Fantastic Four! Jessica Alba, her husband Cash Warren, and their two little girls spent Sunday together at Coldwater Park in Beverly Hills. Although newest addition, 6-month-old Haven, is far too little to play just yet, big sister Honor, 3, showed her how it's done on the playground, digging around in the sandbox and having a ball on the swing set as Mommy cuddled and cooed over baby Haven on the sidelines with Daddy (not pictured). Despite the exhaustion of chasing around after her toddler and caring for her newborn, a casually dressed Alba looked gorgeous with no makeup … just a radiant smile.

Half the battle of a good workout is wearing the right gear — comfortable sneakers, a fashionable outfit, and perhaps most importantly, a supportive bra. That's why former boxer and "Dancing With the Stars" finalist Laila Ali has become the spokesperson for Marika's new line of plus-size sports bras. "I'm an athlete, I'm looking for a high-performance sports bra, but I'm also looking for something that's fashionable, and of course affordable, so I just fell in love with the line," Ali, daughter of boxing legend Muhammad, tells omg!. "And I think it's great that they're coming out with a line exclusively for Lane Bryant that is for plus-size women because plus-size women need to be able to work out too."Read More »from Laila Ali: How I Juggle Staying Fit and Raising Kids
