Page Six says P Diddy Combs offered the city of New York one million dollars if they would allow him to redesign the ball.
His design would promote Comb's Ciroc vodka. They say he would use the blue stone emblem that the vodka is known for. Diddy wanted Mayor Bloomberg to use the $1 million towards city improvement. "You can take this $1 million and help open up some parks ... in Harlem or Queens or Brooklyn. Or you can get it to buy some computers for the public schools or whatever we can use this money for to help people," Diddy said in his vlog. Word is the city turned him down...
Diddy also teamed up with and E! to make sure people don't get behind the wheel after slamming the drinks- They are offering $10 debit cards for taxi rides on New Year's eve. Very thoughtful.

According to ESPN, Tony Romo collapsed in the shower after the Cowboys horrible loss against Philly yesterday. The Eagles won 44 to 6, the Cowboys biggest blowout ever. Romo suffered a painful rib injury in the second half, which supposedly made him fall.
Sources say a stretcher was brought in, but red-faced Romo walked out on his own. He even participated in a news conference shortly after, but had to be helped to the podium. Romo seemed to have difficulty breathing after the fall, and he had to be helped off the stage after talking to the media.
When Romo was asked later what happened, he replied, "Um, you know, I was just a little banged up, I guess." Terrell Owens called the game an "old-fashioned butt whipping." Nail on the head.

Heath's mom said, "We are immensely proud of him, not only for his professional achievements, but in the way he truly cherished his family, friends and his precious Matilda." She added, "Heath was never one to accept mediocrity, he put his heart and soul into achieving what he believed was required and followed his passions with great enthusiasm and an insatiable curiosity."

Kid Rock says animal rights advocates will never stop him from wearing his fur coats. Some even say his hunting and animal fur covered ass contributed to his split with PETA ho Pam Anderson.
Kid told The Mail, "I want to go to war with PETA. My biggest extravagance is fur coats - I've got every kind of animal in my wardrobe."
Rock insinuated PETA's tactics, like throwing red paint at people, are just lame. He said, "I'm just willing the animal rights protesters to chuck some red paint on me." Roar!

Ronnie Wood, 61, and his 20-year-old lover Ekaterina Ivanova, were running around a North London park yesterday. How did he keep up? Pun intended.
The Rolling Stones guitarist dumped his wife Jo, 53, for the waitress a couple of months ago, and they are still together. Shiver. Just look at him. Rumor is they are even shopping for a house to purchase- they took a look at a penthouse overlooking Hyde Park.
Wood has reportedly "not spoken to daughter Leah since his separation." Nice. "Sadly for Jo and the kids, things are getting more and more serious by the day for Ekaterina and Ronnie," an insider says. Winner.

As far as the Benji Madden Paris Hilton break up, Nicole Richie is supposedly "thrilled Paris is gone. She never thought Paris was ever really into Benji."
Richie knows Paris better than Paris know Paris. Four days after dumping Benji, she was seen sneaking into Koi to meet up with ex-boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos. She never wanted it to end.
"She was trying to fly below the radar and left alone about 30 minutes later," says a source. Nicole told Benji that he "deserves better." That whole thing was weird anyway...

This week's Entertainment Weekly has the REAL dish on Jennifer Aniston...all in context. Let's just say she's over it. It was recently reported that she went out with John Mayer, and she didn't drink any booze over dinner. Oh. You know what that means..Pregnant with twins!
"Oh my God, it's hysterical!" Aniston says. "You can't do anything without it going to some extreme. It's almost going to take away the fun from actually being able to say one day, 'I'm pregnant!' Everyone will be like, 'Yeah, right.' It's the boy who cried wolf. Stop stealing my thunder, motherf---ers!"
Jennifer can't believe people actually care about her drama. Last month, Vogue claimed that Jennifer called Angelina Jolie "uncool." She says the comment was taken out of context, and she's amazed people even care about that stuff while we're going through big political changes. "Election night was just so moving, so unbelievable," says Aniston. "And now what do people do? Read my crap! Everything comes to a halt: 'What did she say?' Good God. You have to laugh at it all at the end of the day."
"I was just surprised that Vogue would go so tabloid," Jennifer said. "I was bummed. But you almost expect it. Big Deal. Done. Next."
On approaching 40: "I don't know if I'm just a late bloomer, but I feel like everything is just beginning."
On her new film Marley and Me: "What was interesting was the story of these two people, how it doesn't always look so pretty," she says. "You have your ideas and your dreams when you start out and you're sort of wide-eyed and bushy-tailed as a young married couple. Then life unfolds and it doesn't always take you in the directions you hope that it will."
On Brad Pitt's new film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: "I want Button to do great. I've seen about an hour of it. It's amazing. Amazing." Brad agrees. He told Larry King, "this film just makes me want to hug my kids and call my folks. And it's really special. And I'm not a salesman. I find this one quite authentic and something really special." Button releases the same day as Marley and Me.
Bottom line, Jen is done being the victim. "It's my history," she says. "It's my memory. That's all it is to me: something that happened, something that was really quite poignant and good in the long run."
