Scoop! Once you go Rodman you never go back

Dennis Rodman thinks everything is about him.

Rodman, who was married to Carmen Electra for 10 whole days in 1998, says he knows why Electra and her husband, Dave Navarro, split. Surprise! Rodman thinks it’s about him.

“Carmen called me six months ago,” Rodman, who apparently used to play in the NBA before he started making terrible movies and appearing regularly on reality shows, told Star magazine. “She told me I was the love of her life and she wished we’d stuck together.”

Then, as usual, Rodman went on to brag about what a great lover he is (yawn): “We had great sex! We used to just throw down in the bedroom. We had a real good connection when it came to sex.”

Don of the dead career

Colin Farrell took his role in the big-screen update of “Miami Vice” very seriously. The Irish actor even tried to get in touch with the original Sonny Crockett, Don Johnson, but Johnson blew him off.

Weird, right? It’s not like Johnson is busy working or anything.

But wait, it gets weirder.

“I put a call in to him and he never returned my call,” Farrell told ContactMusic.com. “But Jamie [Foxx, who co-stars in ‘Miami Vice’] met him at a restaurant in L.A. and he said, ‘You tell Colin Farrell when he’s through with my jock strap to give it back.’”

How will Johnson respond whenhe doesn’t get the lead in the big-screen remake of “Nash Bridges” that we all know is going to happen someday?

Kevin defends his lady’s honor

If you’re gonna dis Nicky Hilton, you better make sure her man isn’t around.

“Entourage” star Kevin Connolly and the less-skanky of the Hilton sisters were chillin’ at Hyde in Hollywood when the guest DJ, pro skateboarder Chad Muska, made some nasty comments about Hilton. Connolly then marched up to the turntables and clocked him.

“Kevin jumped on the DJ booth and hit Chad,” a witness told Us Weekly. “Chad tried to hit him back, but at that point they were separated [by security].”

Security escorted Muska out of the nightclub, while Connolly meandered back to his table and continued chatting his lady.

Why, Kevin, why?!?

If you build it, he will come.

Kevin Costner is returning to the Iowa town where he filmed “Field of Dreams” in 1989.

Dyerville is hosting a “Rolling Roadshow,” in which 10 movies are being screened where they were shot. “Field of Dreams” (which we believe is a guy version of a chick flick) is playing in a baseball diamond in town (alas, not in a cornfield).

Costner is not only attending the Aug. 11 screening, he also will be performing, giving a free concert with his band.

Gosh Kev, what did the good folks of Dyerville do to deserve that? Are you planning to torture them with a screening of “The Postman” as well?

Something to talk about

Christie Brinkley had a chat with her cheatin’ estranged husband, Peter Cook, and his parents on Tuesday at the couple’s $22 million Hamptons estate.

“I’d rather not comment,” the 52-year-old supermodel told the New York Daily News. “I just don’t want to fuel this anymore.”

The Cover Girl spokesmodel was not wearing her wedding ring, while Cook has been photographed still wearing his.

Brinkley’s visit lasted all of 15 minutes. We imagine the conversation went like this:

Cook: “Hey, I’m sorry I cheated on you with a 19-year-old. Take me back?”

Brinkley: “Ummm, I just came to pick up my easy, breezy, beautiful Cover Girl makeup.”
