And with Valentine's Day right around the corner, each starlet had a different way she planned on spending the day devoted to celebrating love. While Kelly Bensimon and Kelly Rutherford said that their favorite way to spend the holiday is with their kids and Menounos will be hard at work on the job, Cheryl Burke said she will be "spending Valentine's Day with my single friends. She added: "I am super excited for my 13th season of Dancing With The Stars!" Her ultimate dancing partner? Victor Cruz. "It's his salsa moves!" she said.

MARY KATE OLSEN IS SUBPOENAED BY DEA

Heath Ledger

Nasty and weird Mary Kate Olsen has been subpoenaed to testify in front of a Grand Jury as investigators hope to end the mystery surrounding Heath Ledger's drug overdose death. Drug Enforcement Administration officials in New York City are calling on Olsen, Ledger's close friend, to fill in the blanks related to the six-month-long investigation, according to "Access Hollywood." The latest news comes a day after her lawyer claimed the actress has provided law officials with all the information she knows about Ledger's accidental drug overdose in January.The 22-year-old actress' testimony is sought after because the masseuse who found Ledger dead called Olsen before contacting the emergency services. Reports the other day suggested Olsen was refusing to co-operate with the federal probe until she was guaranteed immunity from prosecution. But her lawyer Michael C. Miller insisted, "We don't know the source of the information being quoted in the media regarding the Government's inquiry, but these descriptions are incomplete and inaccurate."A timeline for Olsen's testimony has not been released.

MARY KATE OLSEN'S LAWYER HAS COMMENT

Mary Kate Olsen

Weirdo Mary Kate Olsen knows nothing about the drugs which killed her friend Heath Ledger, her lawyer insists. Reports yesterday suggested officials behind a federal investigation into Ledger’s January death in New York City, from an accidental overdose were targeting Olsen but she was refusing to co-operate until she was guaranteed immunity from prosecution. Her name was dragged into the case because the masseuse who found Ledger dead called Olsen before contacting the emergency services, prompting suspicions.The 22-year-old actress’ lawyer Michael C. Miller now tells Usmagazine.com that Olsen has provided the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) with all the information she has on her late pal. Miller says, "Regarding the Government’s investigation, at Ms. Olsen’s request, we have provided the Government with relevant information including facts in the chronology of events surrounding Mr. Ledger’s death and the fact that Ms. Olsen does not know the source of the drugs Mr. Ledger consumed." Miller also blasted reports that Olsen faces a Grand Jury subpoena if she refuses to co-operate, adding, "We don’t know the source of the information being quoted in the media regarding the Government’s inquiry, but these descriptions are incomplete and inaccurate."

MARY KATE OLSEN WANTS LEDGER IMMUNITY

According to a report in the New York Post, television actress Mary-Kate Olsen is refusing to talk with federal investigators about the death of 'The Dark Knight' star Heath Ledger unless she's given full immunity. On the fateful day of Ledger's death, Olsen was the first person called when her masseuse discovered the actor's dead body. The Post also reports that Olsen's lawyer has rejected several attempts for the former 'Full House' actress to be questioned, and that she may be subjected to a grand-jury subpoena to discuss what she knew about Ledger's life and death. "Everyone has been very eager to help, saying what a great guy Heath Ledger was, everyone except Mary-Kate, who has refused to speak," a Post source said. Ledger died in January due to an accidental overdose of prescription medication. His final acting role as The Joker in 'The Dark Knight' has earned him Oscar buzz, and propelled the movie to nearly $400 million in ticket sales.


Editors Note: What is Mary Kate afraid of?

SPENCER PRATT AND MARY KATE OLSEN WAR

The Hills television star Spencer Pratt is hitting out at nut case Mary Kate Olsen, after she joked about his temperamental days on the high school football field on the late night David Letterman show.Olsen laughed about the reality TV star’s very bad temper when they were classmates while chatting to Letterman, saying: "He used to play on the soccer team for my high school and he does not have a good temper." But Pratt was left pissed off by the remarks, bitterly telling reporters he knows he has made it in Hollywood now that a "famous troll" has commented on him. And he further lashed out at the 22-year-old actress - insisting he forgives her as she has endured a "tough" life as the less attractive twin, comparing her to her sister Ashley."(Mary-Kate) should probably focus more on not getting dressed in the dark than on me. I forgive her, though. She’s had to go through life as the less cute twin, which must be tough."

NEW YORK POST AFTER MARY KATE OLSEN

Former Hollywood star Mary Kate Olsen's lawyers are being accused of "threatening" a newspaper editor who called for her to be quizzed by police over Heath Ledger's death. The New York Police Department has decided not to question the 21-year-old, despite claims the masseuse who discovered Ledger’s body called the actress in California a number of times before contacting emergency services.Olsen reportedly arranged for security guards at her nearby apartment to race to the scene - nine minutes before an ambulance was called. New York Post editor-in-chief Col Allan claims Olsen’s lawyers contacted him as soon as the newspaper linked the actress with Ledger’s death - and speculates they may have put pressure on the NYPD to eliminate the actress from their enquiries.He says, "Almost immediately after the tragic passing of Mr. Ledger, Ms.Olsen’s attorneys began emailing us threatening messages. We find it strange if Ms. Olsen was not questioned at all."The New York Post will not be pressured, and we find it off that the chiefs at the NYPD appear to be terrified of 4-foot-11 inch, 90-pound Mary-Kate-Olsen."
Editors Note: I agree with Col Allen. There needs to be some questions answered. And knowing Col, like I do, he will get them !

MARY KATE OLSEN ON HEATH LEDGER

Hollywood's own Mary Kate Olsen is breaking her silence following the death of her close friend Heath Ledger by offering her condolences to the family.The 21-year-old actress, who has been linked romantically to the actor, was the first person called by the masseuse who found the Brokeback Mountain star’s body in his New York City apartment on Tuesday. In a statement, Olsen says: "Heath was a friend. His death is a tragic loss.My thoughts are with his family during this very difficult time." Police confirmed yesterday that they have no plans to interview Olsen over the circumstances of Ledger’s death. An autopsy carried out on Wednesday failed to reveal how the actor died, although officials believe his death could be drug-related as five different bottles of prescription drugs were found around his apartment.Meanwhile, a representative for the late actor has confirmed that "there are no plans for a public (funeral) service". Although it has yet to be confirmed, it’s believed Ledger will be buried in his native Perth, Australia.

POLICE QUESTIONS FOR MARY KATE OLSEN

The New York Police Department are denying reports that they plan to interview actress Mary Kate Olsen as they attempt to piece together Hollywood star Heath Ledger's final hours.The actress was a very good friend of the tragic star, who was found dead at his New York apartment earlier this week, and she was the first person called by the masseuse who found Ledger’s body.It has been rumored that police officials want to ask Olsen questions, who was in California at the time of the actor’s death, as part of their search for clues as to how the Batman star died. But NYPD detectives, who are handling the case, have denied the former child actress will be a part of their investigation. Detective Joseph Cavitolo tells People.com, "Absolutely at no time are we going to be interviewing her. We never had any plans to interview her. At this point we are just waiting for the Medical Examiner’s report." An autopsy carried out on Wednesday failed to show how the actor died, although police believe his death is drug-related as five different bottles of prescription drugs were found around his apartment.

Mary-Kate, who along with her twin sister earned $40 million 2006, previously admitted she still has issues with her body and is reluctant to be seen in a bikini. She said: "I would love to be able to swim in the ocean in Malibu. But that is asking for a bikini shot. That's inviting something that I don't want to happen.

THE OLSEN TWINS GETTING NOSE JOBS

The Olsen twins are allegedly planning to have matching nose jobs. Mary-Kate and Ashley have reportedly consulted Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Raj Kanodia about matching nose jobs. A source told In Touch Weekly magazine: "Ashley has always thought her nose was a little too big, so she wanted to get it done.When she talked to her sister about it, she loved the idea.They both love changing their looks. They thought this would make them look more polished." Dr. Kanodia performed Jennifer Aniston's rhinoplasty earlier this year to repair a deviated septum. He also repaired Cameron Diaz's nose which she had broken several times as a child and as an adult while surfing. He is also responsible for Ashlee Simpson's new nose.

A representative for Mary-Kate Olsen has slammed reports she has relapsed in her battle with anorexia after her appearance at a Golden Globe Awards after party last week.

She still works with her therapist to keep her in line." Her representative denies reports her client has suffered a relapse, saying, "Mary-Kate has not lost weight. She is taking good care of herself." Another source close to Olsen blames her new hair color for the drastic change in appearance, adding, "The blonde hair she has now makes her look skinny."

Mary-Kate Olsen says Johnny Depp is her style icon.The 21-year-old actress - one half of the multi-million dollar Olsen film, fashion and merchandise empire with twin sister Ashley, has revealed she is inspired by the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor's unique sense of style. She told Bliss magazine: "Weirdly, I look to guys like Johnny Depp for style tips. He just knows how to put things together and I love that scruffy rock look."

She said: "I like old movie stars like Audrey Hepburn and Rita Hayworth-they were so stylish."
