Saturday Night Live and Mad Men
SATURDAY NIGHT LOVE
Everyone loves a comedian-at least that appears to be the case for certain SNL cast members. First, ladies’ man Jason Sudeikis, 34, charmed Mad Men star January Jones, 32, when she guest-hosted the show last fall. Now, “they’re dating,” says a source of the pair, who began going out this summer. “It’s a new relationship, but they are really happy.” Meanwhile, Fred Armisen, 43, married Jones’ costar Elisabeth Moss, 28, last October after a yearlong courtship, only to have conflicting schedules on opposite coasts (SNL shoots in N.Y.C., Mad Men in L.A.) cause their split in May. Armisen, for one, hasn’t wasted time moving on-with costar Abby Elliott, 23. “They’ve always been close friends on-set, but after he split from Elisabeth, they started hanging out,” says an Armisen source. So how’s Moss taking things? “She seems happy,” says a source. “She’s working a lot, hanging out with friends and moving on with her life.”
JESSE JAMES & KAT VON D
Tattoo artist Kat Von D let her Twitter do the talking on the subject of Jesse James. On Aug. 18 the LA Ink star, 28, announced that she and James, 41, were an item (she deleted the post hours later). In an interview the next day with the Kevin & Bean radio show, Von D dished on why they work: “I think that I’m his type on a different level than people would assume.” As for his behavior with Sandra Bullock, she said, “I am a believer that we’re all human and we’re all capable of making mistakes.” So now that James has moved to within 20 miles of Bullock’s Austin home, will his new lady last? “He’s trying to move on and figure out the future,” a James pal tells Scoop.
Taking the pulse of celebrity love lives
KATE WINSLET & LOUIS DOWLER
With her six-year marriage to Sam Mendes having officially ended in March, Winslet, 34, is stepping out again with U.K. model Louis Dowler. The couple dined Aug. 21 at the Groucho Club in London before dancing at Mahiki nightclub until 3 a.m.
MARILYN MANSON & EVAN RACHEL WOOD
The couple have called it quits again after being engaged for about eight months. Manson, 41, and Wood, 22, began dating in 2006 but broke up in 2008. They reconciled, split again, then reportedly got engaged in December.
CAMILLA BELLE & TOPHER GRACE
The 10,000 BC star, 23, enjoyed an afternoon date with That 70’s Show actor Grace, 32, on Aug. 21 at Santa Monica’s Brentwood Country Mart. The two strolled through the open-air market, chatted over ice cream and “seemed to have a good time together,” says an observer.
Three months after the show’s finale, Lost fans proved their devotion to the ABC drama by spending a reported $1.8 million on memorabilia from the show’s six seasons at a Santa Monica auction Aug. 21 and 22.

Lindsay Lohan, who’s been in a court-ordered treatment program at UCLA since Aug. 2, may be released early from her three-month stay due to a possible misdiagnosis. Doctors reportedly believe that Lohan may have been wrongly prescribed Adderall for ADHD and that her condition wasn’t as bad as previously believed.
Taylor Momsen, 17, is no stranger to slamming fellow singers, saying she’s not looking to be Miley Cyrus (“I don’t care about fame”) and has no time for Justin Bieber (“I don’t know who [he] is”). But after a recent rant against Rihanna for wearing leather jackets (“It’s annoying”), the Pretty Reckless rocker finally toned it down: “I was arguing the difference between rock versus pop. … Rihanna‘s great.”
