Speaking of the Globes, as she indicated during a super-awkward red-carpet chat with E!'s Isaac Mizrahi, Hilary Swank is trying to salvage her marriage to Chad Lowe. "We're still trying to save it," she tells Access Hollywood. "It's not over, we're not divorced. We've been together for over 13 years, and there's a lot of love there." Aww, let's hope the two-time Oscar winner wasn't acting just then.
Justin Timberlake is siding against the website that posted allegedly stolen photos of his former flame, Britney Spears, with her new baby. (Oh, Spears' husband, Kevin Federline, was in them, too.)

As part of the deal, Menounous (which, by the way, is Greek for "miniskirt fanatic") will also serve as a contributor for NBC's Today.

Question: Do you have any new scoop on the rumor that Kelly Monaco is leaving General Hospital for Desperate Housewives?
Answer: It's not true. Marc Cherry told us so himself last month. "I was asked by Access Hollywood about that, and I responded politely because I have never entertained the idea, and I don't know Kelly's work," he explained to my colleague, Bruce Fretts.

After seven years at Access Hollywood, Pat O'Brien has taken his hypester act over to Entertainment Tonight's new spin-off, The Insider (debuting tonight; check TV Guide listings). The professional schmoozer took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to give us the scoop on the new gig, his ugly split with Access and a certain farewell e-mail that got leaked to the New York Post.
TV Guide Online: How will The Insider be different than, say, the 78 other ET clones on the air?Pat O'Brien: A four-letter word: Time. We'll have more time to do things. Entertainment Tonight will be the record of the day and we'll be able to fill in a lot of blanks.
