That JENNIFER LOPEZ and BRADLEY COOPER dinner date that officially was a business dinner, may be back to being a date. A source tells Us Weekly it was a date and that Cooper has been after her for ages and calling her for a while.

In any case, they dined at one of New York City's most romantic restaurants and Page Six adds that Lopez "turned up in a white bandage dress looking ridiculously hot" and that she and Cooper seemed to be "heavily flirting."

New York's Mary Purcell has been charged with calling the Tucson airport on Saturday claiming she overheard her boyfriend and several others discussing a plot to bomb a Southwest Airlines flight to New York. Passengers were removed from the plane and cargo was re-screened. Eventually, the flight arrived safely in New York and Mary arrived safely behind bars. She later admitted the hoax and said she did it because her mother and brother were on the flight and she didn't want them to fly on an airliner so near to the anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
