X Factor judge Paulina Rubio had a late dinner Tuesday night at Juvia. Rubio and a male companion ate their way through the restaurant’s signature dishes until 1 a.m. Rubio — who was divorced last year — was, says a spy, “Definitely on a date. They were sitting next to each other like a couple. It was late and there weren’t many people around.” It is unclear if the man was Jerry Bazúa, her rumored boyfriend, or someone new. Spies say Rubio was drinking sake, so it’s unlikely, as rumor has it, that she’s preggo.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.
