Daily Chisme: Cameron Diaz and P. Diddy Extra Close At 2012 Oscars?

The 2012 Oscars may be over, but that means the post-party chisme is just beginning! Check out the scoop below:

- Cameron Diaz and P. Diddy may be playing it coy about their rumored romance, but we noticed the two sitting pretty close to each other at last night’s 2012 Oscars. Although the half-Cuban actress arrived solo, we suspect that their seating arrangement was totally intentional. What do you think? (Latina)

- Meryl Streep decided to indulge after her “Best Actress” Oscar win for The Iron Lady. The actress celebrated by munching on a burger at the Weinstein afterparty at the Mondrian Hotel. So much for the Hollywood diet! We love it! (People)

- Former MTV VJ Vanessa Minnillo has officially changed her last name since marrying singer Nick Lachey. She says, "We talked about it and he was so sweet…He said, 'Whatever you want, I understand.' And I said, 'But would it mean a lot to you if I took it? Because I'm old fashioned and I want to.'” The newlywed adds, “And he said, 'What guy wouldn't want their girl to take their name fully?' [But] He didn't push me, no, no, no." Mrs. Vanessa Lachey. We like the sound of that! (People)

- Katy Perry plans on getting her cooking on! The pop star was recently spotted dropping $50,000 on cooking lessons at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Oscar bash in West Hollywood. Perry ended up getting into a bidding war with movie producer Steve Tisch, but they quickly resolved the issue. A source adds, “Katy got up and hugged him delightedly. She seemed a bit tipsy, but not messy at all." We wonder if she will make anything with sazón in it! (US Weekly)
