Kendra: First Hefs, now Hanks

She was once Hugh Hefner's third girlfriend - after Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. But soon, Kendra Leigh Wilkinson, 23, will belong to Philly.

Well, sort of. The Girls Next Door star is engaged to marry Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett, says Hef, who adds that he's overjoyed that Hank proposed and Kendra said yes.

"I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a . . . ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June," Hef says in a statement. Hank proposed last weekend atop the Space Needle in Seattle. He even got down on one knee.

Madge, Brit & Justin

By the power vested in her as a self-important busybody, Madonna on Thursday brought former star-crossed lovers Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears to her concert in L.A. But that's as close as "Cry Me a River" boy and the not-a-girl-not-yet-a-woman woman got to each other.

Madonna sang separately with each - "Human Nature" with Brit and "4 Minutes" with Justin.

Gun rap for Katt W.

Comic Katt Williams, 37, and two pals were charged Wednesday on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon for handguns police found after a traffic stop in Manhattan, says E! news. The Friday After Next star and his 10-member entourage, who were cruising in midtown in a two-vehicle convoy, were stopped by cops who noticed that Williams' SUV had missing tags. No comment from his lawyer.
