Is Guy Ritchie moving on?
With rumors of a budding relationship between Ritchie and heiress Jemima Khan gaining momentum, there's at least one person who couldn't be happier: Ritchie's soon-to-be ex-wife, Madonna.
"It's not like she's asking him for details, but she's thrilled at the prospect of him moving on. It makes things easier for everybody," says a Madonna pal.
Ritchie and Khan (who used to be linked with Hugh Grant) are said to have attended a dinner party in London together earlier this month, and the Mirror reports that they attended a Christmas party together this weekend. Other big names who were there: Stella and Mary McCartney, Lily Allen, Mick Jagger and Kevin Spacey.

VH-1 builds 'Sober House'
The second season of "Celebrity Rehab," VH-1's compelling, you're-appalled-but-you-can't-look-away reality series is getting a spin off, "Sober Living."
Video: The Scoop on Will Smith fatigue The new series will follow former Guns 'N Roses drummer Steven Adler, Crazy Town frontman Seth “Shifty” Binzer, adult-film star Mary Carey, Rodney King, "American Idol" finalist Nikki McKibbin, model Amber Smith, and comedian Andy Dick into a sober living facility.
Dr. Drew Pinsky, who helmed "Rehab," will also be onhand for "Sober Living." But is it a good idea? Seems as if the "celebrities" involved were a little more A-list, like, say, Britney Spears, we'd be saying it was exploitative.
In other reality show news, VH-1's sister channel, MTV, is planning on launching 16 new unscripted series over the next five months. The shows will be produced by some big names: Sean Combs, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, Donald Trump, and Nick Lachey are all onboard, according to Variety.
Weekend box office
Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings To those of you who braved ridiculously inclement weather to hit the movies, thank you for saying yes to "Yes Man." As predicted, the Jim Carrey flick was number one, but the $18.1 million it took in was less than predicted, thanks to the snow and sleet that fell upon many major markets.
"Seven Pounds" and "Tale of Despereaux" fell into the second and third spots. Worth noting: "Seven Pounds," which made $16 million, was star Will Smith's worst opening since 2000's "Legend of Bagger Vance." Smith is typically a solid opener, regardless of genre. Are we feeling Smith fatigue or was the weather really to blame for a tepid opening?
