kendra playboy cover Kendra Wilkinson talks Playboy cover; Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen dating againKendra Wilkinson is back on the cover of Playboy’s December issue, but she says the mag is using old photos. “I AM on the December cover of Playboy,” she writes in her blog, “but it wasn’t from a recent shoot. The photos are from a shoot I did 2 years ago when I was still living in the mansion… I’m flattered to be on the cover again and as you all know Playboy has a very special place in my heart! I just wanted you guys to know I didn’t recently pose.” [Celebuzz]

]]>Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are on again. A friend of Bilson’s says, “They’re dating again.” Last week, Christensen was seen leaving Bilson’s house in Los Angeles. He lives in Canada, which was one of the reported reasons for the split. We’re still waiting for Seth Cohen to stand on a coffee cart and get her back. [People] Lauren Conrad doesn’t feel any competition from former “The Hills” co-star Audrina Patridge, despite Audrina’s mom calling Lauren a “tramp” and a “bitch.” “I think it’s good for her,” Conrad says of Patridge’s new show. “And no, I really don’t think about it like that at all.” As for Audrina’s mom? “I really don’t have a comment on that right now, thanks,” Conrad says. [Us] Speaking of “The Hills,” Heidi Montag‘s money troubles might be hereditary. Her mother, Darlene Egelhoff, owns a restaurant in Colorado that recently went out of business. In fact, Egelhoff even had to borrow money from her daughter last year. “I fought it for so long,” she says, but she eventually called her daughter. “Heidi very generously wired me a check that day. That kept the restaurant afloat for at least six months. It was so generous and helpful.” Now estranged from her daughter, Egelhoff is cleaning houses to make ends meet. [People] “The Bachelor” Jake Pavelka has gone back to work as an airline pilot after giving an acting career a shot. He piloted a flight from Atlanta to Augusta, Ga. on Oct. 24. “The flight attendant asked us not to tell anyone because he didn’t want it to be known,” says a passenger. “When they announced our captain they just said, ‘Your captain today is Jake’.” [Us]
