Jake's New Girl Jake Gyllenhaal, 25, is apparently dating Gretchen Bleiler, an Olympic snowboarder from Toledo, Ohio. It is rumored that Bleiler, also 25, will move from her current residence in Snowmass Village, Colorado to LA to be with Gyllenhaal. Bleiler won the silver medal in halfpipe in 2006 and was the superpipe champion in the 2003 and 2005 Winter X Games, plus from 2001-2003 she reigned as the Vans Triple Crown of Snowboarding champion.

Ashlee's Learned from Jessica's Mistakes

Unlike Jessica Simpson, now 25, who married Nick Lachey at the age of 21, little sis Ashlee wants to wait. Since watching her sister "go through a really hard time" she definitely is not thinking of tying the knot any time soon. According to her recent interview with Teen People, she is "absolutely in love" with her band mate and boyfriend Brazton Olita but wants to take things slow. She told the magazine that "there's a lot of growing up you do in your 20s, and I definitely want to wait until my late 20s or 30s or whenever the time is right." (source, source) No, she has not darkened her hair underneath, she is introducing her new puppy, Hula, to the crowd during a performance Saturday at West Palm Beach's SunFest. (FYI: her I Am Me tour kicks off June 5th)
