What really came between Paris Hilton and Stavros Niarchos? Could it have been “Mean Girls” vixen Lindsay Lohan?
Partying heiress Hilton and shipping heir Niarchos have reportedly split — but just hours after Hilton recently left the U.S. for Australia, Niarchos was spotted “sipping cocktails and dirty dancing” at L.A. club Element with Lohan, according to Life & Style.
“Lindsay was all over Stavros,” a bartender told the mag. “At one point, he had his hand up her skirt!” Three days later, Stavros was reportedly seen leaving Lohan’s room at the Chateau Marmont.
Hilton is said to be “heartbroken” over the breakup, but the ever-resilient heiress is already busy mending her heart, and was spotted on the town with football star Matt Leinart.
Look for spurned spouses Heather Locklear and Charlie Sheen to join forces.
Shortly after she split from hubby Richie Sambora, Locklear got a call from Sheen, who had been married to her best friend Denise Richards. Locklear had sided with Richards during her messy split from Sheen. “He told her that she’d backed the wrong horse,” a “pal” told In Touch Weekly, which reports that Locklear “had to agree” with him. Sheen and Locklear were buddies back from when they worked together on “Spin City.”
“Heather still adores Charlie,” an “insider” told In Touch. “They’re both in a state of shock but are vowing to help each other.” The two actually have the same attorney, Lance Spiegel, and some believe that Locklear could be a valuable character witness for Sheen — and against Denise — in any divorce proceedings. One source told the mag: “Heather could easily destroy Denise’s case against Charlie.”
Notes from all over
Paula Abdul says Simon Cowell may want to marry her. Abdul was interviewed by Tyra Banks, who asked if working with Cowell is as bad as working with Janice Dickinson. “I used to work with Janice on ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and they kind of remind me of each other,” the model-turned-talk-show-host said in a segment of “The Tyra Banks Show” that airs on Thursday. “That’s a great analogy, because there are times where you just laugh...and then there are times you’re [cringing],” Abdul responded. “I’ll be trying to watch the performer on stage, and you can see him doing this [pokes Tyra] to me!” Tyra suggested: “It’s like the little boy on the playground when you’re a kid that likes you, and they hit you.” Paula agreed and said, “That must mean he loves me and wants to get married to me.” . . .
