Monday gossip roundup: Blake Lively wants a stylish boyfriend

Actress Blake Lively attends the Cinema Society & Blackberry Bold screening of "Haywire" at Landmark Sunshine Cinema.

Recovering from the car crash that left her rented Porsche totaled, Lindsay Lohan is going on the defensive, shooting down accusations by the other driver that Lohan’s people had tried to bribe him. The driver, identified only as James, claims two employees of Lohan removed a mysterious pink bag from the Porsche before offering him cash and telling him not to call the police. Sources tell the Web site that Lohan insists the whole story is fabricated. As for her side of the story, Lohan reportedly claims the brakes on her rented Porsche failed, causing her to slam into the back of James’ truck after it cut her off. She also claims that the rental car office had told her the brakes on the Porsche had been replaced two days before the crash.

Lady Gaga reportedly suffered a concussion after a backup dancer accidentally whacked her in the head with a pole during a concert in Auckland, New Zealand, according to Us Weekly. But while she was seen staggering backward after the blow, the singer continued, finishing her show. “Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be OK,” her makeup artist, Tara Savelo,” posted to Twitter Monday. “Can’t believe she finished the show.”

Jennifer Lopez stepped out recently with boyfriend Casper Smart — and an eye-catching diamond ring on her left hand, prompting engagement talk about the couple. But Lopez is quick to shoot them down. “Rumors! Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got,” Lopez says in a statement on her Web site, quoting one of her hit songs. “No engagement!”

Blake Lively, who is happily dating “Green Lantern” co-star Ryan Reynolds, looks for two things in a man: a sense of style and a passion for food. “It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well,” Lively tells Marie Claire magazine. “What I love most is when someone, guy or girl, is effortless and has this old-timey sort of feel [that] you could take a snapshot of them and they could exist in any time period.” And as for the culinary side? “To be around me, you must love food or I’m the most obnoxious person you’ve ever met,” she says. “I’m in a big cooking phase. That’s all I’ll talk about.”

Jennifer Aniston has found the secret to staying young: Vaseline. The former “Friends” star reportedly dabs a quarter-teaspoon of the substance under her eyes each night, according to Now magazine. “Jen’s very disciplined when it comes to staying young,” a source says, adding that Aniston “doesn’t like the thought ?of surgery because she doesn’t want to look stretched, so she ?has a 30-minute nightly beauty ritual.” That ritual involves a cleanser, a lotion and a 10-minute facial massage, all topped off by the dabs of Vaseline. And she reportedly has a cost-effective morning ritual as well: Aniston “fills her sink with water and ice cubes and dips her face in it to shrink the pores and reduce puffiness around her eyes,” the source says.

Tommy Chong, one half of comedy duo Cheech & Chong and a longtime marijuana enthusiast, has revealed that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer — and he’s using cannabis to treat the condition, according to CNN. Chong says he started seeing symptoms eight years ago “while incarcerated for selling drug paraphernalia,” he says. Chong is using hemp oil to fight his “slow state one” cancer, “so [legalizing marijuana] means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested,” he says.
