Couples corner

Those rumors about Rihanna and Drake starting up something again may just be that: rumors. Page Six is saying that Ri-Ri just can’t quit Chris Brown. The Wake Me Up singer apparently started texting her on her birthday Feb. 20. She texted back, and the missives haven’t ceased. Her friends are said to be concerned.

Here comes the bride. In Touch reports Lauren Conrad has set a wedding date with her fiancé, law student William Tell. “They’ll walk down the aisle this fall,” an insider shares with the magazine. She’ll also design her own dress.

In polar opposite news, Kate Hudson and Muse rocker Matthew Bellamy may not make it after all. The Wish I Was Here star stepped out recently without her engagement ring, and the two have not been photographed together for some time. They have a 2-year-old son, Bing.

Money matters

Real Housewives of NYC star Aviva Drescher admits Life & Style that she’s spent a pretty penny on her prosthetic legs, well over $1 million. “I’ve had around 50 legs throughout my lifetime, and they run about $30,000 apiece,” said Drescher, who was in a farm accident at age 6.

Pay up

Ouch. Lisa Kudrow has been ordered to pay her former manager $1.6 million in residuals from her work on Friends. The L.A. County Superior Court jury returned its verdict in a lawsuit filed by Scott Howard who claimed he had an oral agreement with the actress and was owed a percentage of her earnings on the hit sitcom. Kudrow contended during the trial that she had already paid Howard more than $11 million before they parted ways in 2007.

Glamorous gig

Ever since 1992, construction entrepreneur Richard Lugner has paid an of-the-moment celebrity to be his escort to the prestigious Vienna Opera ball, held Thursday night. Among the billionaire Austrian’s dates: Paris Hilton, Raquel Welch and Sophia Loren. Now it’s Kim Kardashian’s turn. Pay runs from $150,000 to $1 million, according to UK tabloids.

    Adam Richman starts fresh with ‘Food Fighters’

    NBC is taking a chance on Adam Richman. The network is going full steam ahead with Food Fighters, debuting 8 p.m. Tuesday. The Man V Food star, who plays host on the new cooking competition, was extremely polite on a recent conference call, a far cry from last month when Richman engaged with various social media users who opposed the slimmed-down foodie’s use of the hashtag #thinspiration, a pro-eating disorder term. Using expletives to lash out, he even suggested one woman “grab a razor blade and draw a bath.” Travel Channel subsequently shelved another one of his shows, Man Finds Food.
