Yet Kourtney left Scott's name off of her family's holiday gingerbread house. And on Dec. 3, TMZ reported that while they are on better terms now than they've been in years, there's no intimacy and Scott has not moved back in… though Kourtney is open to a reconciliation in the future.

There have been some conflicting reports regarding Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx this year! Katie and Jamie were rumored to have split in October but then one month later, they were reportedly back on. The best part of their romance is that it hasn't been confirmed at all. There's even a rumor about why they won't go public. In September, Radar Online claimed that there's a clause in Katie and Tom Cruise's divorce decree that states that she can't publicly date anyone until five years after the end of the marriage. The time isn't right just yet because she and Tom split in June 2012.
