David Duchovny & Téa Leoni
WORKING IT OUT
As they played volleyball and frolicked in the waves at a Malibu beach Father’s Day weekend, David Duchovny, 48, wife Téa Leoni, 43, and their children Madelaine West, 10, and Kyd, 7, looked every bit the happy family. The show of solidarity seemed like another step in the right direction for Duchovny and Leoni, who announced their separation last fall after 11 years of marriage following Duchovny’s stint in rehab for sex addiction. They’ve been spotted strolling around Manhattan and taking in a New York Knicks game with their children in recent months. While a formal reconciliation isn’t for certain, “their relationship has really improved, and they’re still in love,” says a pal. “They care for each other, and they’re working it out for their kids.”

MARRIED 4 YEARS
BILLY JOEL & KATIE LEE JOEL
According to sources, the differences in the couple’s ages—he’s 60, she’s 27—and lifestyles doomed their marriage. “She was out all the time. He would come home to an empty house,” explains a pal. A source close to Katie says, “They’ve grown apart,” adding there is “no truth” to rumors the chef has been dating designer Yigal Azrouël. At the Wayuu Taya Foundation gala on June 17, Joel’s daughter Alexa, 23, told Scoop, “He’ll get through this. I’m going to help.”

5 Questions for …
The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star reveals an unusual phobia (it’s a hoot!) and one of his most memorable—and steamy—date nights
1 Are you a morning person?
Not at all! I probably wake up around 12 or 1 in the afternoon every day. I definitely love being up at night—the daytime is sleepy time.
2 Any phobias?
I’m terrified of owls. It started when I was young. I can’t even look at the image of an owl—I’ve never been to Hooters in my life! And I’ve never seen any of the Harry Potter movies because they have owls throughout!
3 What was your last impulse buy?
I bought an HD Sony video camera. I’ve been shooting my upcoming music video in all these countries we’ve gone through [while promoting Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen]. It will be my directorial debut.
4 Do you have any tattoos?
I have over 70. Both of my arms have sleeves and are fully covered. My favorite is the Autobot Transformers on my forearm. I got it while we were filming. And I love this eye on my right shoulder. It’s just crazy. It looks like an eye that has a spider web around it.
5 What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for love?
One time in Miami I was with a girl that I was really in love with. I had a private yacht with a chef on-board so we could have dinner on the water as the sun was going down. We had this soft romantic music on. It was a perfect night.
