‘Sex’ star in sex tape?

Kristin is back in the news, and no, it’s not Eliot Spitzer’s reported high-priced escort, “Kristen.”

Kristin Davis, the actress who played the squeaky-clean Charlotte York on HBO’s “Sex and the City,” is rumored to have made a sex tape, Newsday.com reports. Upon news of the “leaked” photographs, bloggers and gossip sites went into a feeding frenzy. The woman in question bears a striking resemblance to Miss Davis and is also photographed in a compromised position.

According to OK! magazine, representatives for Miss Davis have denied the sex-tape rumors.

Lady Macca attacks

Heather Mills has no shame.

The former Mrs. Paul McCartney admits she threw water on her ex-husband’s high-powered lawyer inside the courtroom during their near-$50-million divorce ruling, Agence France-Presse reports.

Miss Mills said she approached Mr. McCartney’s attorney, Fiona Shackleton, and said: “I’m not a loser.

“I poured the whole jug of water on her head. I was very calm,” Miss Mills added.

The drenching spawned a host of headlines. The U.K. Daily Mirror declared “Wet It Be” on its front page, breathlessly recounting the splash-and-dash episode.

Indeed, pictures from the courthouse show Miss Shackleton — who famously represented Prince Charles in his divorce from Princess Diana — arriving Monday morning with a bouncy blond bouffant and leaving around 2 p.m. with damp locks slicked back behind her ears, People.com reports. When the BBC asked Miss Mills about the attack, the former “Dancing With the Stars” participant would only say that Miss Shackleton had been “baptized in court.” (Miss Shackleton’s office at London’s Paynes Hicks Beach law firm had no comment, People.com said.)

Meanwhile, Judge Hugh Bennett, who presided over the proceedings, said Miss Mills was a less-than-candid court witness whose original $250 million divorce claim was exorbitant, Associated Press reports. The judgment was released yesterday after a court rejected Miss Mills’ attempt to block publication.

“To some extent she is her own worst enemy,” Judge Bennett wrote of Miss Mills. “She has an explosive and volatile character.”

Cheaper to keep her

Speaking of Mr. McCartney and his slightly lightened wallet, looks like he got off easy compared to the celebrity hubbies in other big-money splits. According to AP, the most expensive include:

• Michael and Juanita Jordan, possibly more than $150 million settlement pending, 2006.

• Neil Diamond and Marcia Murphey, $150 million, 1994.

• Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving, $100 million, 1989.

• Harrison Ford and Melissa Mathison, $85 million, 2004.

• Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva, $80 million, 1994.

So sorry, Busey says

Gary Busey has apologized for embracing Jennifer Garner on the red carpet at the Oscars last month, AP reports.

During a live pre-show broadcast on E! Entertainment Television, Mr. Busey repeatedly interrupted while Ryan Seacrest was interviewing Miss Garner and Oscar nominee Laura Linney. At one point, Mr. Busey embraced Miss Garner, who looked annoyed.

Calls to Miss Garner’s publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnik, weren’t immediately returned, AP said.

Andy gets an Ella

The Society of Singers has picked “Moon River” crooner Andy Williams to receive its 17th Ella Award for singers whose musical accomplishments are equaled by their humanitarian efforts.

The Ella Award, named after its first recipient Ella Fitzgerald, has gone previously to Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Tony Bennett, Placido Domingo, Elton John and others.

Mr. Williams, 80, who earned 18 gold and three platinum albums and also hosted a popular TV variety series in the 1960s, will receive the award May 19 in Beverly Hills.
