Scoop! Wedding bells for Doherty and Moss?

Some people never learn. Take Kate Moss, for instance. The supermodel, who is having the best year ever thanks to her drug scandal, is back with rocker-turned-professional junkie Pete Doherty.

Moss and the Babyshambles frontman were photographed kissing after Doherty, who says he is trying to clean up his act, appeared on the British music show “Transmission.”

“She may be off the cocaine, but Pete is like a drug for her — he’s an addiction that she can’t cure herself of,” a source told the Daily Mail.

As usual, Moss’ hard-working rep is trying to downplay the reconciliation, saying the “Sid & Nancy” for the new millennium are just friends, even though Moss was spotted sportin’ a big ol’ diamond ring.

“They are seeing each other as friends as she has promised to do as part of supporting him and helping him try to beat drugs,” the rep said. “There is nothing more than that going on.”

Gossip hounds are also barking that a big bash the couple hosted in a London nightclub Saturday night was in fact an engagement party, and the couple has booked a nightclub on the Spanish island Ibiza, where they will make it official this week.

Look for the couple to honeymoon at a luxurious rehab center by next week.

So, Mariah doesn’t count as a woman?

Christina Aguilera continues to try to prove that she is more mature and intelligent than her pop diva counterparts such as Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson, using the ol’ “women need to stick together” slogan.

“One of my main goals is to try and help women to love each other. I think it’s really sad women seem to feel the need to be so competitive and jealous and threatened,” the “Back to Basics” singer told Allure magazine.

Sounds like a great idea, right?

Well, in the very next paragraph, Aguilera talks smack about Mariah Carey. “She hasn’t been nice to me, no, but, honestly, I don’t want to give her any more attention by even talking about it,” Aguilera said.

Jennifer has a rep to protect

Jennifer Aniston’s rep Stephen Huvane is striking back.

Huvane is so ticked with the folks at NBC’s “Today” for reporting the Us Weekly story of Aniston and Vince Vaughn’s alleged engagement that he is pulling his other clients off the show and handing them over to the morning show’s rival, ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

“The timing couldn’t be worse,” an insider told “September is when the ratings war traditionally heats up, and Huvane’s clients have some big movies coming out.”

Huvane’s talent pool includes Kirsten Dunst, Gwyneth Paltrow and Demi Moore, two of whom have eagerly anticipated films coming out this year. We’ll let you guess which two.

So you think you can dance, Tucker?

Who’s a better dancer: MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson or talk-show host Jerry Springer?

Who cares is the correct answer, but if you are dying to know, then you will be happy to know that the third installment of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” steps onto the dance floor Sept. 12.

Joining Carlson and Springer are actress Vivica A. Fox, Joe “Whoa!” Lawrence, Mario “Saved by the Bell” Lopez, country singer Sara Evans, “Ultimate Fighter” host Willa Ford, actor Harry Hamlin (whose wife, Lisa Rinna, competed last season), Monique Coleman from “High School Musical,” newly single “Meet the Barkers” star Shanna Moakler and three-time Super Bowl champ Emmitt Smith.
