• It may be over for the most famous lesbian couple in America, Rosie O'Donnell and Kelli Carpenter. Rosie acknowledges the two are having "issues" and says they're trying to work things out. But Carpenter may have already moved out of the home they share in Nyack, which probably isn't a good sign. [People]
• Jill Zarin has no manners. When the "Real Housewife" appeared at the opening of "Memphis" on Broadway the other night, she arrived 30 minutes late and with an entourage in tow and disrupted audience members when they moved into their seats. Then she blabbed for 15 minutes during the show. [P6]

• The trial of the two people accused of trying to extort $25 million from John Travolta ended with a mistrial yesterday. [NYDN]

• Former NBA star Reggie Miller has taken out a restraining order against Alex von Furstenberg, who he says may try to hurt him given von Furstenberg believes the baller tried to steal his fiance, Ali Kay. Back in August, von Furstenberg hired a plane to fly over Malibu with a banner reading, "Reggie Miller, stop pursuing married women," and just days ago, Miller said the playboy (and son of Diane von Furstenberg) tried to fight him, followed him in his car, and tried to run him off the road.

Salman Rushdie is over Broadway actress Pia Glenn. He attended a gala with author Min Lieskovsky the other night, although Lieskovsky has written in the past that she's "addicted to male models," so Rushdie probably shouldn't hold out hope that this relationship is going anywhere. [P6]
• Someone bought 23 bottles of Cristal for Lindsay Lohan's "birthday" and had them paraded around 1Oak at the Angel Ball after-party on Tuesday night. (Another 23 bottles were brought out half an hour later.) The problem? Her birthday is in July. [P6]
• In other Lohan family news, Michael Lohan wrote an open letter to Lindsay, and naturally, he had it published in InTouch magazine. Because that's what all loving, caring fathers do, right? [MSNBC]
• Joel Madden and Nicole Richie haven't tied the knot yet, it seems. [Us]

• Bronson Pinchot—yes, the guy who played Balki on Perfect Strangers—is facing off against Tom Cruise. Pinchot said Cruise would make "constant unrelated homophobic comments" back when they filmed Risky Business together. ("It was like, 'It's a nice day, I'm glad there are no gay people standing here,'" Pinchot recalled Cruise saying.) Cruise's rep responded, "This is so far removed from who Tom Cruise is as a person, this must have been said in jest." [PopEater]
