Relationship is a wrap

Carson Daly is off Tara Reid's most requested list.

Daly, 28, the host of MTV's video countdown show "Total Request Live," and Reid, the co-star of the upcoming movie "American Pie 2," are no longer dating, his publicist said Tuesday.

"They're definitely split up and they wish each other the best and that's it," Shirine Coburn said. "It's private."

"When something's not right, it's not right," Reid, 25, told Mitchell Fink of the New York Daily News in Tuesday's editions. "I did everything I could to make the relationship work, and it didn't."

Wedding missing bride, groom

The wedding for singer Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes and NFL wide receiver Andre Rison reportedly scheduled for Thursday in Atlanta won't happen, Lopes' spokesman said.

Matt Shelton said Monday that neither his client nor Rison would be in town Thursday. Lopes, a member of the Grammy-winning R&B; trio TLC, had reserved the Atlanta Botanical Garden for a wedding that day.

Shelton said Lopes, 30, will be in Los Angeles for a video shoot Thursday, but he said he still expects the couple to marry.

Rison, 34, played with the Oakland Raiders last season.

Lopes was arrested in 1994 for torching the $1.3 million mansion she shared with Rison in Alpharetta, Ga. They broke up after that but later got back together.

Tooting his own horn

Woody Allen will embark on a three-city West Coast tour next month with Eddy Davis & His New Orleans Jazz Band to promote his new film, "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion."

Allen plays clarinet with the band every Monday night at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan.

The band is scheduled to play Aug. 2 in Seattle, Aug. 3 in Oakland, Calif., and Aug. 7 in Los Angeles. Screenings will be scheduled a day before the shows in Seattle and Los Angeles. A screening in San Francisco will take place before the Oakland performance.

Twice the Jacko

Organizers of the festivities for Michael Jackson's 30th anniversary concert in New York have expanded it to two shows.

In addition to the original Sept. 7 date, a second concert will be Sept. 10 at Madison Square Garden, publicists said Monday.

The concerts will mark the King of Pop's 30-year solo career. The 42-year-old Jackson also will reunite with his brothers for the first time in years.

Organizers have tapped a "who's who" of entertainers to pay tribute to Jackson, including 'N Sync, Whitney Houston, Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Luther Vandross, Britney Spears and Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott. The show is scheduled to be broadcast on CBS at a later date.
