Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Esposito Engaged

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito are engaged, their rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Cooper, 31, and Esposito, 34, have kept their romance low profile. In January at the Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globes party, the pair greeted each other with a kiss on the lips. Asked if there was a love connection to report, Esposito told PEOPLE coyly, "I'm not answering that."

Esposito starred in the 2005-06 WB series Related and this year won, along with her costars, a Screen Actors Guild award for best cast in a motion picture for Crash. She had an eight-month romance with Benjamin Bratt from 1996-97 and later dated All My Children actor Cameron Mathison.

Cooper got his big break in 2001, when he joined the cast of Alias, and in 2005 starred in the short-lived FOX sitcom Kitchen Confidential. He also appeared in last summer's Wedding Crashers and performed opposite Julia Roberts on Broadway in Three Days of Rain.

Asked how he impresses women, Cooper, who loves to cook, told PEOPLE last year, "I like to make stuffed calamari with dried currants, prosciutto, goat cheese and leeks, with a homemade tomato sauce. The problem is, when I cook for a date, I get so maniacal, they see my obsessive side."

He's attracted to independent women, he told PEOPLE: "I love a woman who you can go out to a party with and you don't have to worry. She can take care of herself."

This will be the first marriage for both.

I never even knew they were dating.

Oprah on XM radio (talks about poop & white ppl)

Oprah Lords Over White Folk, Talks Poop on XM

If it wasn't already totally evident that Oprah Winfrey can talk about anything for any length of time, her debut today on her own XM Radio channel just confirmed it. The talk-show queen gabbed with her best pal Gayle King (who called her, inexplicably, "Mommy") on what is nominally King's show on "Oprah & Friends," the satellite channel that launched today.

Among many, many other things, Oprah talked about her humble beginnings in Mississippi, and particularly about how her mother's highest aspiration for her was that she might end up cleaning white people's houses, because "they give away nice clothes." And then Oprah pointed out that now that she's Oprah, she has "all these white people" working for her, and that in fact there's only one black person on the staff. Way to turn the tables, girl.

Finally -- and this was just in the first fifteen minutes -- Oprah moved onto her most recent favorite topic, excrement. O assured Gayle that the reason she doesn't have children wasn't that she can't deal with poo, or "pooty," as the pair called it. For this -- and whatever follows -- is what XM is paying Oprah $55 million over the next three years.

Mariah and Elton Out-Bitch Each Other!

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Mariah Carey performs at the Pengrowth Saddledome tonight. Elton John performs Friday.

- - -

When it comes to diva behaviour, the king of piano-pop, Elton John, and the queen of extravagant vocal ranges, Mariah Carey, both take the cake and eat it too.

From throwing hissy fits in front of the press, to questionable fashion choices to outrageous demands, these two infamous entertainers -- both of whom perform in Calgary this week -- are at the top of their game when it comes to acting like spoiled superstars.

"I think (Carey) may have been humbled a bit by her bad divorce from Tommy Mottola and her recent career missteps. She's mellowed a bit recently. But, Elton John is still doing interviews where he openly trashes people. He's not mellowing," says Tara Ariano, a Toronto-based celebrity pundit and co-founder of celebrity gossip website fametracker.com.

"Elton has been on top for some time. He's practically an elder statesman of rock and pop, so he gets more leeway to do his thing than younger people do. He's practically like Little Richard at this point."

So, who is the biggest diva of them all? Let's look at the evidence:

Court Papers: Anna Nicole Was Hospitalized to Detox from Methadone

ET breaks major bombshells in the battle for Anna Nicole's newborn baby girl.

There's a new bombshell in the battle for ANNA NICOLE SMITH's newborn baby: Photojournalist LARRY BIRKHEAD has hired celebrity attorney DEBRA OPRI, who filed court papers on his behalf in L.A. Superior Court on Monday to establish paternity and custody of the child.

The allegations are stunning. Court papers reportedly claim that Anna Nicole was hospitalized to detox from a drug addiction.

That's just one of the jaw-dropping claims being made today. Sources tell ET that Anna Nicole has allegedly been addicted to methadone -- the same drug that was found in her son DANIEL's system when he died -- for nearly three years.

Birkhead also reportedly claims in the court papers that this pregnancy was not the first time Anna Nicole was pregnant with his child. Sources say the former lovers got pregnant, but that she miscarried in February of 2005.

In court papers, Birkhead reportedly says his former girlfriend fled to the Bahamas after he suggested the baby be tested for drugs. And his anger was apparent last night with RITA COSBY on MSNBC.

"There's absolutely no way that [Anna's attorney] HOWARD K. STERN is the father of this child," he said. "He knows it, I know it, and that's all there is to it."

Birkhead wants not only legal custody, but also physical custody of the baby he claims is his.

He also reportedly claims in the court papers that "Anna Nicole previously tried to get another man to claim the baby was his," but that that plan fell through because that mystery man had already had a vasectomy.

The documents filed request that the court orders Anna Nicole to "to submit to paternity testing immediately, the child returned to the State of California and that drug testing be conducted on mother and child."

Gaultier swaps Size O models for 'Size 20'

Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier found his own way to comment on the 'size zero' debate - by putting a larger model down the catwalk to show off his clothes. Dressed in a daring black corsetry, the plus-sized model dwarfed her fellow waif-like catwalk queens.

Clearly more of a size 20 than the controversial model Size 0, this voluptuous woman proved big is beautiful as she strutted down the runway at Gaultier's 30th anniversary show yesterday during fashion week in Paris.

Don't mock Bruce's bald head

Bruce Willis has threatened to "beat up" anybody who mocks him over his baldness.

The bald actor is not wearing a wig for his role as cop John McClane in the fourth Die Hard movie, Live Free or Die Hard, because he wants to show that the character has aged.

Willis, 51, has issued a stern warning to anyone who is thinking about ridiculing his lack of locks.

He said: "I'm a man and I will beat up anybody who tries to tell me that I am not a man just because my hair is thinning."

Willis is currently shooting the action movie in Baltimore, in the US.

It is scheduled for release next summer.

Meanwhile, Willis has revealed he wants to adopt.

The actor - who has three biological daughters with ex-wife Demi Moore - admits he would love to give a home a disadvantaged child but he doesn't want to do it on his own.

He recently said: "I would need somebody else in my life. I wouldn't want to just have a child and a nanny."

Madonna feeds a hungry kid

Madonna adopts baby boy in Malawi
Singer, already mom of two, also will fund center for orphans

Updated: 12 minutes ago
LILONGWE, - Pop diva Madonna adopted a young boy in Malawi on Wednesday and moved ahead with plans to fund a center for 1,000 orphans, many of whom lost parents to AIDS in the impoverished African nation.

The “Material Girl” and an entourage arrived in the Malawian capital Lilongwe by private plane early on Wednesday and were quickly whisked away to an undisclosed location in a fleet of cars and trucks.

Government officials said the 48-year-old singer, already a mother of two, chose the one-year-old orphan from among 12 children specially chosen prior to her arrival in the country, which has legions of children orphaned by the AIDS epidemic.

“She asked us to identify boys only, which we have done after visiting four orphanages in Lilongwe,” government spokeswoman Adrina Michiela said. Michiela said Madonna had wanted to adopt a girl but changed her mind two weeks ago.

It was unclear whether Madonna, for whom Malawi waived its ban on non-resident adoptions, would leave the country with her adopted baby or whether they would be reunited at a later date.

Madonna has said she plans to spend at least $3 million on programs to support orphans in Malawi and another $1 million to fund a documentary about the plight of children in the country.

She travelled to Mphandula, a village 20 km (12.5 miles) outside Lilongwe, where she is funding the construction of the Raising Malawi centre to feed and educate around 1,000 orphans.

Residents in Mphandula, which has no electricity, were earlier busy rehearsing songs and preparing for her arrival.

Critics have described the project as a publicity stunt that follows in the footsteps of other celebrities, including actress Angelina Jolie, who have taken up causes on the world’s poorest continent.

As part of their studies, orphans at the centre will be taught a curriculum based on Spirituality for Kids linked to the Kabbalah school of mysticism to which Madonna adheres.

'Failure to Launch' actor Matthew McConaughey is making a fitness DVD for men

Matthew McConaughey is making a fitness DVD for men.

The 'Failure to Launch' actor has been training intensively to get in shape for the project and enlisted the help of some of his celebrity friends.

Matthew and cycling legend Lance Armstrong have been seen completing gruelling exercise sessions on Malibu beach to prepare for the shoot.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Matt wants to create a lifestyle and fitness DVD for men. It will show how to get a surfer's body. That's why he has been working out so much. He couldn't provide a DVD promising an amazing physique if he was untoned himself."

The 36-year-old Texan has even asked housemate (say what ?!!) Lance, who won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times, to appear in the project with him.

The source added: "Lance is the first of Matt's celebrity friends he is interviewing to get tips. He is hoping others will get involved as well."

Meanwhile, Matthew's former lover Penelope Cruz has been spotted with British actor Orlando Bloom, sparking rumours the pair are an item.

Matthew and Penelope, who fell in love on the set of adventure movie 'Sahara', had been dating for more than a year before they called time on their relationship this summer.

Simpson slams Carter cheating claims

Pop star Ashlee Simpson has slammed Nick Carter's claims they slept together while the Backstreet Boy was still dating socialite Paris Hilron. Carter told PageSix.com on Sunday (01OCT06) that he had a brief affair with Simpson after he heard rumours Hilton was cheating on him with her House of Wax co-star Chad Michael Murray on set in Australia. The I Want It That Way hitmaker and Hilton dated for eight months before splitting in July 2004 - the same month Murray announced his engagement to his One Tree Hill co-star Sophia Bush after proposing Down Under. Carter said, "I hooked up with Ashlee Simpson. When Paris came back from Australia, they talked to each other and she found out about it." However, Simpson insists the alleged tryst never took place, telling MSN, "No! That is so random. When I heard that, I was dying laughing."

Andy Samberg in GQ.. you know he's hot!

Not since ‘Wayne’s World’ has Saturday Night Live produced a shaggy-goofball fantasy like the career of Andy Samberg. Imagine: You hook up with a couple of your junior-high-school buddies and form a comedy troupe. You make a few no-budget short films and give them away for free on the Web. You and your crew—known collectively as the Lonely Island and colloquially as “the Dudes”—are basically just amusing yourselves, acting on the kind of dumb ideas that seem, at four o’clock in the morning, like comedy gold. But get this: People in decision-making positions actually watch these movies. They watch the twisted cartoons starring beloved Nintendo-game characters, and the OC spoofs, and the clip in which a man who is naked from the waist down raps about wearing pants, and suddenly you and the Dudes have an agent and a couple of pilots in development. (“We have nothing but love for the Internet,” Samberg says, but points out that he did stand-up, too, and that all the Dudes paid their dues in the offline comedy world.)

Well, I finally completed the trilogy--no not Gabriel García Márquez’s memoir trilogy, that would be impossible. This past year I’ve spoken to all three members of the Stella comedy troupe, Michael Showalter, David Wain and now the most visible of all three, Michael Ian Black. This past year has been good to Black. His directorial debut, The Pleasure of Your Company, was one of the few sales at the Toronto Film Festival, he is doing a column for the revamped Cracked magazine, and the first and probably last DVD of the Stella television series has just been released.

Is there another man?

Say it ain't so! The O.C.'s cutest couple, Rachel Bilson, 25, and Adam Brody, 26, may be heading for a split, insiders say. The duo, who have been together for nearly 3 years, haven't been spending much time together lately. Instead, Rachel has been painting the town on both coasts with former 'NSync singer JC Chasez, 30. The two first hit the scene in late August, partying in NYC at the MTV VMAs. Then on Sept. 19, Rachel and JC double dated with Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz. The next day in LA, they left a Teen Vogue party together.

"JC's smitten with Rachel", a friend says. "Rachel feels the same about him and has been rethinking her relationship with Adam", says another insider. "She says it's not healthy to settle down so young, and she wants to see what else is out there."
