‘I’M LIVING IN MY BODY FOR THE FIRST TIME’
Eight months after beginning hormone therapy as part of gender reassignment, Chaz Bono, 40, told ET, “My outsides are finally starting to match my insides…. I’m literally going through puberty.” While the hormones “[don’t] change anything mentally and emotionally,” he said, “they lowered my voice. Fat redistributes, muscle growth, hair growth, sex drive increases.” Chaz called the process “slow” (“I will be changing for about four to five years,” he explained), but revealed that he’s begun shaving and got shaving products for his birthday. “I feel like I’m living in my body for the first time,” he said. “It feels really good.”

WOW, WHAT A WEEK FOR JON & KATE!
HAILEY & JON ON THE ROCKS
Hailey Glassman, 22, has confessed that her four-month relationship with Jon Gosselin has hit a rocky patch. “I don’t know why I love him,” she told The Insider. “He’ll call me and take his anger out on me. He has ‘mantrums.’ I shouldn’t have to put up with being emotionally abused.” But is it really over? Jon says they’re simply “slowing things down.” On Nov. 2 Hailey tweeted that she was “semi-single, but definitely NOT YET ready to mingle.”
JON CONSULTS A RABBI
Jon, 32, is seeking spiritual guidance from Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. During a public discussion at a New York City synagogue Nov. 1 with Boteach, Jon said, “Half the stuff I’ve done, if I look at my moral compass, I shouldn’t have done…. Fame canceled out conviction…. I’m learning to settle down.”
KATE’S TEARY TV INTERVIEW
Kate Gosselin, 34, meanwhile, has offered a mea culpa of her own. “I was very hard on him…. I was wrong to treat him that way,” a teary-eyed Kate said of her estranged husband during an interview that aired on TLC Nov. 2. Kate also says their kids are upset–especially without the Jon & Kate Plus 8 cameras. “They miss the crew … filming … the fun we had,” she said.

Taking the pulse of celebrity love lives
Taylor Swift & Taylor Lautner
GETTING CLOSER–AND CUTER!
Taylor Swift, 19, turned a recent trip to L.A. into a dating spree with New Moon star Taylor Lautner, 17. Over four days the pair bonded on the set of the singer’s new Band Hero commercial (“They seemed very excited to spend time together,” says one witness), shopped at Alice + Olivia in Beverly Hills and dined with Swift’s mom–twice! Swift’s close pal Selena Gomez, 17–who dated Lautner earlier this year–seems fine with the pairing. The girls met up for dinner Oct. 27. Says a Gomez source: “She thought Taylor was a great guy, but not for her.”
George & Elisabetta
RENDEZVOUS IN ROME!
George Clooney and his girlfriend, Italian model-actress Elisabetta Canalis, are showing no signs of slowing down. On Oct. 24 the couple shared a cozy dinner at Shinto, a Japanese restaurant in Rome, not far from where Clooney is filming The American. “Every now and then Elisabetta would offer him some of her sushi directly from her chopsticks,” an eyewitness tells Scoop, and Clooney “enjoyed it very much.”
Just weeks after he was spotted sharing a steamy kiss with his longtime boyfriend Drake LaBry outside a Hollywood party, Adam Lambert, 27, is flying solo again. The American Idol runner-up was in good spirits as he hit Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine’s annual Halloween bash (and dressed as a glam vampire). A friend of Lambert’s says the singer’s split with Louisiana native LaBry, 24, was amicable. “It was mainly because Adam’s life is so hectic,” says the pal. “He needs to focus on his career right now.” Lambert’s debut CD, For Your Entertainment, is out Nov. 23.

Crow’s first pair of Choos “hurt my feet the first time I wore them, and I think they still hurt my feet, but they’re so cute I wear them anyway!” 11/1, Miami: Gabrielle Union celebrated her 37th b-day with a chocolate chip cake (her special request!) and danced up a storm at the Fontainebleau’s LIV nightclub.
