Is Debra Messing dating her 'Smash' co-star?

Debra Messing is making headlines, but it's not for her new NBC show "Smash" - well, not exactly.

After announcing her split from her husband of 10 years last week, Messing is rumored to be dating her "Smash" co-star, Will Chase.

(The show, which also stars "Idol" alum Katharine McPhee, is a midseason drama about what goes on behind-the-scenes on Broadway.)

Kendra, Holly come to Hef's defense in dog debate

They may have moved on from their relationship with Playboy's Hugh Hefner, but Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson still have his back.

The two former "Girls Next Door" stars were livid when they heard that Hef's ex-fiancee, Crystal Harris, was trying to take back the Cavalier King Charles spaniel puppy she initially handed over to Hefner after she called off their June wedding.

At the time, Crystal gave Hef the dog because “she thinks he’s happier here," Hefner tweeted June 20. "I appreciate it, because I really missed him."

Emma Watson, Bieber boast 2011's 'Most Influential' hair

According to the Wall Street Journal, two young stars have the hottest haircuts of the year: actress Emma Watson and singer Justin Bieber. The paper has dubbed their hairstyles the "Most Influential" of 2011.

“Hairstylists are being inundated with requests for pixie cuts and the Bieber swish,” the WSJ notes. (As you can see in the photo above, though, Bieber doesn't even have the "Bieber swish" anymore - he cut his hair in February.)

Nonetheless, the paper continues, “The enthusiasm plays out online, where the fastest-rising searches for celebrity haircuts on Google are for Ms. Watson and Mr. Bieber.”
