Scoop! Was Tony Parker cheating on Eva?

Eva Longoria and Tony Parker’s reps are claiming busy work schedules and not living in the same city are what drove the couple of two years apart. It’s a good excuse. Too bad it’s not true.

Gossip hounds are barking that the San Antonio Spurs’ point guard was stepping out on the “Desperate Housewives” star. Parker was spied dirty dancing and snuggling up to a hot blonde during an after-party for “The Departed” in chic nightclub Marquee in New York City.

“Eva was devastated when she found out,” one of Longoria’s blabby buddies told The New York Post. “The blonde was an ex-girlfriend of Tony’s, and they apparently swapped numbers, but he swears nothing else happened.

George Michael busted … again!

George Michael is quickly becoming the new Pete Doherty.

The singer was arrested at 3:22 a.m. Sunday morning on suspicion of possessing marijuana after police found him once again slumped over the steering wheel of his car in London.

Michael was released on bail and is set for a November court date.

Michael’s partner, Kenny Goss, told The Sun that Michael has no comment, saying, “He’s fine and I’ve got him a McDonald’s.” Yeah, a Big Mac should take care of everything.

Of course, this isn’t the former Wham frontman’s first time being caught in an awkward situation. The 43-year-old singer was let off with a warning for pot possession in February after a police officer found him slumped over the steering wheel of his car. In April, Michael was busted for hitting three parked cars, which he attributed to being a “terrible driver.” And who could forget the April 1998 arrest for engaging in a “lewd act” in a public restroom in Los Angeles?

Firing her PR person should help Brit’s reputation

Britney Spears has reportedly fired her longtime publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnick.

Apparently, the “singer” has decided she wants to handle her own PR after she negotiated her own deal for the exclusive rights of son Sutton Pierce’s first photos with People magazine, according to Radar Online.

This is great news for gossip fans! If Mrs. Kevin Federline had a PR person all this time, then imagine the stuff we’re going to hear about her and K-Fed now that she doesn’t have someone to put a spin on it for us! Sweet.

Nick & Paris & Chad & Ashlee

In his ongoing attempt to make himself relevant and promote his new E! reality show “House of Carters,” Nick Carter is fessin’ up to all kinds of stuff.

The Backstreet Boy is telling anyone who will listen that last year he cheated on then-girlfriend Paris Hilton with (cue the dramatic music) Ashlee Simpson, because he heard Hilton was cheating on him with her “House of Wax” co-star Chad Michael Murray.

“I’d fallen head over heels with this chick. Then, all of a sudden, three months go by and I got people telling me, ‘Nick, you know what Paris is doing to you,’ and I got a little upset,” Carter told PageSix.com. “So then I just decided to fight back a little bit. … The result is I hooked up with Ashlee Simpson.”

Carter said when Hilton returned from filming that horrible horror movie, he told her about his infidelity and demanded she do the same, but Hilton pulled a Bill Clinton, saying she never had sexual relations with that man.

“I got so burnt over that whole Paris [bleep] with all this swinging and switching,” Carter said. “Whatever happened to morals and values?”

Yeah, good question, Nick. Perhaps you can explore that mystery on your self-serving train wreck of a reality show.
