Rumor Control: Out and About
February 9, 2005

Rumors are swirling about a "Desperate" diva's sexual preference and Brad Pitt's love life, so that can only mean one thing: this looks like a job for rumor control.

Gay rumors have been flying about one "Housewife," but is Marcia Cross really getting ready to come out of the closet?

No -- Wednesday morning on "The View," Marcia set the record straight, saying, "I assume this is what happens when you're 42 and single. I'm not."

Meanwhile, It's been more than a month since Brad and Jen split, and now comes unconfirmed word that he's starting to date. Hollywood tongues have been wagging about Brad Pitt and hot, young model April Florio, a 22-year-old aspiring actress. So, are they an item?

No -- we talked to April's representatives who told us the two are just friends.

What Brad has been up to is supporting one of his favorite causes: the environment. "Extra" spotted him with "Fight Club" co-star Ed Norton at a Solar Power event Monday, where their high-powered Hollywood conversation was all about... whose hybrid electric vehicle gets better mileage.
