The breakup rumors about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are reaching a fever pitch, with the New York Post claiming that the couple’s engagement is officially off. “Miley and Liam are done — it’s over,” a source tells the newspaper. “She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him.” But Cyrus is reportedly still holding out hope of a reconciliation. “They do fight, but she is crazy about Liam,” another source says, adding that Cyrus “isn’t ready to accept it might be over for good.”

Gwyneth Paltrow is discovering that getting her family on a new low-carb, gluten-free diet isn’t exactly a painless endeavor. “Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we’re left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs,” she says in her new cookbook. But the pain is worth it, she insists. “Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across … seems to concur that [gluten] is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it,” she writes.

Anna Kendrick has reportedly ended her four-year relationship with her “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” director, Edgar Wright, according to Us Weekly. “She’s single,” a source says. “It was done a little while ago.” In her new life as a single gal, Kendrick has been ruminating about what life would be like on reality TV. “If I were a contestant on ‘the Bachelor,’ I’d just end up falling in love with the weird sound guy and making things uncomfortable for everyone,” she joked recently on Twitter. “To all the people joking about becoming sound guys, you should also know they put mics in actresses’ cleavage and packs on [their] inner thighs. Think about it.”

Terrible London traffic has driven Spice Girl Geri Halliwell underground, as the singer ventured onto public transportation for the first time in nearly two decades this week. “Forgive me for being a brat,” she tweeted about the experience. “After 17 years and yesterday’s two hours of traffic, let’s save time and money — the tube!” Halliwell also posted photos of herself on the platform and train. Her final judgment on the experience? “Not so bad!”

Helen Mirren has been having trouble with one of her canine co-stars in her new West End play, “the Audience,” leading to 7-year-old corgi Lizzy getting the axe, according to the Telegraph. The dog, who appeared as one of Queen Elizabeth’s pets in the play, failed to hit her cues on 16 separate occasions before producers decided to replace her. “She was excited the first three times,” director Stephen Daldry tells the newspaper. “And then I think she decided she didn’t want to be an actress anymore. She decided to retire from the British stage.”
