He looks as studly, dewy-fresh and baby-faced as the day he modeled his sparking-white briefs in 1983's Risky Business. It's hard to believe that Tom Cruise, who turns 50 in July, has never had a nip, tuck, lift or lipo in his life. "I haven't, and I never would," Tom tells Playboy on the set of his next sci-fi blockbuster, Oblivion. Of wifey Katie Holmes, he says: "Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity," says Tom. "She's funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better.

In the new Atlantic City, no longer is it sufficient to have merely a yen to roll some dice, eat some good grub and watch a name singer warble a dozen tunes. If Caesars vice president of marketing Erin Hansen has her way, visitors to Atlantic City will have a "lifestyle," too. "Tony Bennett has played here a long time and he will continue to come, which is wonderful," said Hansen. "But we want to attract people who never came to Atlantic City, people who never thought to come to Caesars before.

HOW CONVENIENT for celebrity chef Paula Deen : Now that she's publicly acknowledged that she has diabetes (she found out three years ago), she is teaming with drug-maker Novo Nordisk to promote a Novo diabetes drug and program. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade. The move, however, strikes Tattle as similar to a hooker hawking Valtrax.

Before she even put down her bag or said hello, Libbie Summers was compelled to comment on the bright, minimal vibe at the La Colombe near City Hall. It's just her way: For the cookbook author, culinary producer, blogger, and food stylist, aesthetics are tied into everything she does. "On the train I was writing notes about radishes and white lace and spring onions," she says. "I can't help it, my head goes crazy!" The Savannah, Ga., resident was in town for a few days this month, promoting the recent release of The Whole Hog Cookbook , her first solo title.

Drunk. Naked. Hooker. Police. Is there a more delicious string of words in GossipLand? Thank Charlie Sheen for inspiring them. The Two and a Half Men star was hospitalized Tuesday for a psychiatric evaluation hours after police say they found him naked and "highly intoxicated" in a room at New York's Plaza Hotel, which he apparently had trashed with actions most violent. An unnamed source tells RadarOnline that Sheen, 45, enjoyed cocaine and the company of a call girl prior to redecorating his room.

NO DEAL HAS been reached, but we hear "Real World: Los Angeles" cast mate Glen Naessens and his brother Mike , who owns Eulogy (136 Chestnut), are trying to buy the Khyber (56 S. 2nd), which is mere feet away.
