Has Reese Witherspoon got a new man?

She certainly doesn’t waste her time.

Fresh from her break-up, Reese Witherspoon was spotted dining out with a handsome suitor in Santa Monica, last week, at Italian eatery Locanda Portofino.

The man in question is Jim Toth, a Hollywood talent scout who works for the agency that look after the 33-year-old actress.

A source for People magazine said: “They were very flirtatious throughout dinner. They were having a lot of fun, totally getting along and laughing and talking the whole dinner. Reese seemed very happy. She was smiling all dinner. The mood was upbeat and really good.”

After the two-hour meal, Toth paid the bill and the pair parted with a kiss in the car park. An onlooker told the gossip mag: “Reese reached around his neck and pulled him close for a hug. They kissed bye on the cheek – but it was a very friendly goodbye.”

But was it all business or pleasure?

A source close to the Legally Blonde star claims the dinner was just work, however a friend of Jim’s maintains  it was, “a date,” though, “nothing serious.”

Since her split from actor Jake Gyllenhaal in December, the mother-of-two has been linked to Scot Gerard Butler.

It’s about time we saw Reece with a fella who can reciprocate her, ahem, affections… on account of the bearding and all.

Heidi Montag addicted to plastic surgery

Life in plastic, it’s fantastic.

Heidi Montag graces the cover of People magazine, unveiling a shiny, new look.

At just 23-years-old, the reality star has gone under the knife for a second time, revealing that she underwent a staggering 10 different cosmetic surgery procedures in one day, including a nose job revision, a mini-brow lift, bigger breast implants and a buttock augmentation.

Explaining her transformation to the gossip rag, she said: “For the past three years I’ve thought about what to have done, I am absolutely beyond obsessed.

“I was made fun of when I was younger, and so I had insecurities, especially after I moved to L.A. People said I had a ‘Jay Leno chin’ they’d circle it on blogs and say nasty things. It bothered me. And when I watched myself on The Hills, my ears would be sticking out like Dumbo! I just wanted to feel more confident and look in the mirror and be like, ‘Whoa! That’s me!’ I was an ugly duckling before.”

And the aspiring singer, who is already planning more trips to the plastic surgeons for the future, believes the cosmetic surgery she’s had will help propel her to pop stardom: “I’m competing against the Britney Spearses of the world — and when she was in her prime, it was her sex appeal that sold. Obviously, looks matter; it’s a superficial industry.”

Wow, this is pretty disturbing to say the least. As if she didn’t resemble a Barbie enough. A word of warning Heidi – keep out of the sun… you may melt.

Destiny’s Child Michelle Williams fires papa Knowles

This was inevitable.

Former Destiny’s Child member, Michelle Williams has dissolved her professional relationship with Matthew Knowles and his company, Music World Entertainment, after a decade under his representation.

“From my time in Destiny’s Child to my solo career, I am grateful for everything Mathew and his team has done for me. We’ve shared great success together. However, as I move in a new direction in my career, I felt it was time,” the 29-year-old said in a statement.

“I wish Mathew Knowles and the Music World Entertainment family all the best.”

According to an insider for People magazine, the singer’s departure did not come as a surprise to Mathew and his camp. “They were like, ‘Good for her.’ They knew that things were going on with him and that things [in his personal life] were going to be revealed. There’s been a build-up to this. A lot of his personal stuff was overshadowing what was being done for Michelle. She got fed up and decided it was time to move on.”

The revelation doesn’t seem so far off the mark – just last month, reports came out that Matthew’s wife of 30-years, Tina Knowles, was filing for divorce. His professional life appears to also be struggling – almost one year ago, another DC member Kelly Rowland, severed ties with MWE.

In the meantime, Michelle will return to Broadway as Roxie Hart in the Tony Award-winning hit musical Chicago.

Don’t worry papa Knowles, you’ve still got your piggy bank Beyoncé.
