The daily dish ...

Common ground...

There may be a thawing in relations between exes Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston.

Johnston's manager, Tank Jones, says the two are spending more time together for their son's sake. But Jones says they're not back together.

The couple became a public face for teenage pregnancy amid Sarah Palin's 2008 run for vice president. Bristol Palin is the eldest daughter of the former Alaska governor.

The teen couple broke up after son Tripp's birth in December 2008, and the two have been to court over child support.

Jones says the two didn't speak for a while but have become more cordial.

Palin family attorney Thomas Van Flein says they recognized a "joint interest" in raising their son in a positive environment and are taking steps to co-parent in a way that serves his best interests.


'Pie' faced...

Actor Chris Klein was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of drunken driving after he was spotted weaving across lanes on a Southern California highway, authorities said.

The 31-year-old "American Pie" star was pulled over while driving through Sherman Oaks on the Hollywood Freeway, the California Highway Patrol said in a statement. CHP Officer Patrick Kimball said Klein was booked and released on his own recognizance.

A request to comment was left with Klein's agent and his manager.

Klein was fined $1,800 and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service in 2005 after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge in north San Diego County.

Klein played the character of Chris "Oz" Ostreicher in 1999's "American Pie" and in the 2001 sequel. He was also featured in the 1999 film "Election."


Fox, Green to wed...

Megan Fox is off the market. Again.

A spokeswoman for the 24-year-old actress says Fox is engaged to her longtime boyfriend, actor Brian Austin Green.

Publicist Dominique Appel declined to elaborate.

Fox was previously engaged to Green, 36, whom she has been dating for several years.

The two appeared together in an online video protesting California school budget cuts earlier this year. Fox can next be seen in the film "Jonah Hex," opening Friday.


No Coleman service...

The independent attorney appointed to oversee the property and cremation of late actor Gary Coleman said Wednesday there will be no funeral services for the former child TV star.

A Utah judge Monday named Robert Jeffs the special administrator of Coleman's estate after a dispute between the "Diff'rent Strokes" star's ex-wife and ex-girlfriend.

Jeffs told the Associated Press on Wednesday that Coleman's 2005 will specifies that there should be no funeral services.

Coleman died May 28 after suffering a brain hemorrhage at his home in Santaquin, 55 miles south of Salt Lake City.

The judge ordered that Coleman's remains be cremated no sooner than Wednesday afternoon.

"The judge hasn't entered the order granting me authority as special administrator," Jeffs said. "That's just a technicality; [I] need a formalized order."

Jeffs said even if the order were entered Wednesday, it was unlikely Coleman would be cremated the same day.

Jeffs has said Coleman's ashes and property will be securely stored until a final determination is made on an estate executor. It's a decision Jeffs said could take months.
