Dr. Drew Leads Emotional Intervention To Figure Out How Non-Addict Joanie Got On 'Celebrity Rehab'


Last night's installment of Celebrity Rehab delivered perhaps its most poignant moment since decided to convert the Pasadena Recovery Center into a melancholy-tinged version of its Surreal Life house. In a move we'll assume is generally unnecessary inside the walls of a rehabilitation facility, Dr. Drew and his troubled, semi-famous charges staged an intervention on behalf of Joanie Chyna in a desperate attempt to figure out why, exactly, she's on the show; as an avowed non-alcoholic or drug-abuser, Joanie's very presence was so bedeviling to her fellow addicts that such a drastic measure was required to puzzle through the mystery of her casting.

 

(Indeed, had one of the cameras panned to capture the reaction of a nearby producer watching a monitor, we're sure he would have shrugged and mouthed I dunno, I don't even remember inviting her here to the TV audience.) Despite the unorthodoxy of the situation, the intervention was a success; with the help of her unfailingly supportive peers, it was determined that reality-show recidivist Joanie is addicted to Celebreality itself, a revelation that will allow her to stay at the Center until Dr. Drew can help her kick her debilitating habit by slowly reducing her screentime to nothing

Victoria Beckham to quit music for good

Victoria Beckham has revealed she plans to quit to the music industry for good - and that she was the reason behind the Spice Girls’ shock early split earlier this week.

Beckham, 33, has decided she wants to become a full-time fashion designer - and says she will never sing with her Spice Girl bandmates Mel B, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel C again.

Nigella Lawson denies will-plan stories

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You might have noticed in the press that I have (apparently) cut my children out of my will, cruel mother that I am. Of course I have no intention of leaving my children destitute and starving - rather, this is a story that came from a comment I made about my belief that you have to work in order to learn the value of money.

I have always said of my children that once they have finished university or training, whatever education they choose, they have to support themselves through work, as I did, but I have never discussed the details of my will with anyone. The story that has been circulating is not a true reflection of my intentions and, although I'd normally ignore it, I want to set the record, not least to spare my children continuing embarrassment.

Spears Arrested -- No, Not That One!



Comic Aries Spears was arrested in New York last night on a misdemeanor charge of forcible touching.

NYPD received a 911 call shortly after midnight after a woman claimed that Spears had fondled her at the Comix Comedy Club in Manhattan, where Spears had earlier performed. He was arrested just before 1:00 AM and taken to the station and booked. He received a desk appearance ticket and was released on his own recognizance.

A rep for Spears could not be located. The comedy club told us they had no comment on the incident, only to say that Spears would not be performing again tonight (as had been scheduled) so that "he could deal with his personal issues."

South Florida casting call for new Seth Green movie

The producers of a Hollywood flick starring Seth Green being filmed in Boca and Palm Beach County's western edges are desperate for up to 200 "Amish-looking" extras.

Ellen Jacoby, casting director of Untitled Teen Road Movie, says the pay is $75 a day, and some could get two weeks of work.

The Tinseltown dreammakers are going to need some serious magic here. Their goal is to reproduce a giant Amish party (rumspringa FTW!) in a place made to look like rural Pennsylvania.

As a bonus, the extras get food and a free concert by, get this, the hard rockers of Fall Out Boy. That happens on Feb. 26, the busiest filming day.

The casting call is noon to 3pm Saturday, February 9 at The Mall at Wellington Green.

CONFIRMED: BRITNEY IS STAYING 14 MORE DAYS!

Britney Spears's hospitalization has been extended to an additional 14-day hold, a source exclusively confirms to PEOPLE.

Only her psychiatrist would've had the authority to request the involuntary stay. However, it's possible the singer could be out earlier if she legally demands to be released or her doctor deems her well enough for outpatient treatment.

What is life like for Spears at the Stewart & Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA? According to the patient's bill of rights at the hospital, she is allowed to wear her own clothes and keep her own personal possessions, including toiletries. She may also see visitors every day and make and receive phone calls – but not on her personal cell phone. There are pay phones on the floor.

There are two wings at the hospital, separated by a kitchen/dining room. Patients sometimes mix, especially for smoke breaks out on the deck, which is gated and surrounded by a metal fence.

The average patient sees his or her attending doctor every day. Since UCLA is a teaching hospital, the attending doctors are often accompanied by students. Staffers check on patients at least once an hour, even during the night.

'It's a Terrible Situation'

The Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital is known as one of the top facilities of its kind; still, "It is a terrible situation," says a source close to the Spears family. "Britney is in a padded room. Her family is so worried about her."

Terry K. Wasserman, a veteran L.A. attorney specializing in mental health cases (who’s not involved in the Spears matter), explains that if a patient becomes combative, he or she "could be placed in a 'quiet room,' some of which are padded."

Wasserman adds: "Another possibility is being confined to a bed by leather restraints. In extreme, life-threatening situations – when the patient is a threat to oneself or medical staff – a psychiatrist can inject a person with psychiatric medication."

In addition, Wasserman says, "a doctor can force a patient to take prescribed medication. If he or she resists taking the meds, the psychiatrist can obtain authorization to forcefully medicate the person – but only after a hearing on the matter takes place."

USA Today's "8 Awaited Movies for 2008"

Movies preview: 8 awaited titles for the 2008 viewing season
By Scott Bowles, Susan Wloszczyna and Mike Clark, USA TODAY

Collapse )

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
May 16


The bait: Pumped-up battle action. Added computer generated creatures. More human actors of legal age. A few extra teen girls may be tempted to go this time, just to watch tall, dark and armored newcomer Ben Barnes swing his sword as Caspian. 

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
May 22


The bait: A blend of old and new. We'll see new faces, namely Shia Lebouf as Indy's sidekick. But what has always lured audiences to an Indiana Jones film, star Harrison Ford says, "It is a pure entertainment. Unjustified. Unencumbered. We have a tradition of presenting ripping good yarns."

Sex and the City: The Movie
May 30


The bait: "The show was about the search for love. This film is more about what happens after you find it,"
says Michael Patrick King, the main creative force behind the series who wrote and directed the film.

The Dark Knight
July 18


The bait: Ledger.
Before the actor died, director Christopher Nolan said he wanted Knight to be darker than his first installment and to make "The Joker" as iconic as Batman. 

Mamma Mia! 
July 18


The bait: "The music was always the star of the show,"
says Judy Craymer, creator of the Broadway musical and a producer of the film. "Now, we have a real star." That would be Meryl Streep, who gets a chance to flex her vocal cords as Donna.

X-Files
July 25


The bait: Mulder and Scully.
X-fIles brings back David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as a believer-and-skeptic team, a couple that Carter says still resonates. "When we first got on set and I saw them together, I got chills," he says. "They've always had a chemistry that's rare in television. It was like having the familiy back together." 

Quantum of Solace
November 7


The bait: This outing takes its cues from its predecessor by offering a vulnerable Bond. The emphasis is once again on grit, not gimmickry. 

Star Trek
December 25


The bait: JJ Abrams. The creator of Lost and Cloverfield is one of the few filmmakers who can draw an audience with his name and unconventional take on conventional themes.

Cheryl Cole Asks Victoria Beckham For Advice

HEARTBROKEN CHERYL COLE is crying on the shoulder of fellow WAG VICTORIA BECKHAM after her marriage crisis.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I can reveal the distraught Girls Aloud star phoned Posh TWICE this week following revelations her footballer hubby ASHLEY was a love rat.

Cheryl, 24, walked out on him after more sordid details of his cheating emerged.

Last week we told how she vowed to stand by her man despite his drunken night of shame with blonde hairdresser AIMEE WALTON.

But further reports of a fling with glamour model BROOKE HEALEY and him chasing Page 3 beauty JAKKI DEGG after marrying Cheryl have ended that.

She's desperate for advice on how to cope with the betrayal and knows Posh has also come through a rocky patch with DAVID BECKHAM.

The two became pals on the WAGs circuit and Cheryl knew she could rely on Posh for advice.

And today I can share with you her four-point plan to get back on track.

The Spice Girl told Cheryl: "Get your HAIR done, put on some MAKE-UP, treat yourself to a POSH FROCK then BRAVE the world."

I'm told: "Victoria has strong views on this situation but feels she's in a good position to help Cheryl through it.

"She told her she has to be honest with herself and if she believes she can save the marriage to do everything to make that happen.

"She was clear that Cheryl should not bury herself away. She told her to get her hair done, put on some expensive make-up and buy an amazing new outfit to get out and face the world."

It's going to be tough for Cheryl who had a dramatic showdown with Ashley on the phone on Wednesday night. She sobbed: "I can't go on—give me a reason to stay with you."

Ashley replied: "Because I love you. It was a mistake. I was drunk."

Cheryl's so stressed that her hair has even begun to fall out.
My source went on: "She's hardly eating anything either. She feels so betrayed. She's a broken woman."

But I gather her Girls Aloud bandmates want her to dump Ashley. My source added: "They think she'll be better off without him.

Victoria's advice is opposite to the girls. It'll be interesting to see whose she takes."

Matthew McConaughey's love rule

Matthew McConaughey could never date a woman who tried to change him.

The 'Sahara' actor, who recently announced he was expecting his first child with girlfriend Camila Alves, is renowned for his eccentric lifestyle and insists women have to accept him for who he is.

Matthew, who was famously arrested for cannabis possession at his home in October 1999 while playing the bongos naked, said: "One woman tried to change me and she wasn't around that long! She wanted me to do some things that weren't me. There are so many things I'd never want a partner to change about themselves. Too many times you see it where people get in a relationship and one person changes the other and it doesn't work out - you lose the person you fell in love with."

The 38-year-old star, who has previously dated Penelope Cruz, Sandra Bullock and Ashley Judd, also believes it is vital to have distance and space in a relationship.

He said: "I think everyone needs personal space. People need space even when they are in the same room with someone. You've got to be alone when you're together. And when you are physically apart you've got to be happy for them and pleased about the happiness they're getting from that."

That last paragraph made my brain hurt.  Matt, you crazy!

Heath's LA Memorial




It reads like the nominations list for Oscars night, but the mega-stars who gathered in Los Angeles today for Heath Ledger's memorial were only there to honour one man.

Led by megastar Tom Cruise, his wife Katie Holmes, Sienna Miller and Ellen DeGeneres, the stars paid tribute to the 28-year-old Oscar nominee on the lot of Sony studios in Los Angeles, celebrity magazine People said on it website.

Lindsay Lohan, Josh Harnett and British supermodel Lily Cole were among the high profile stars photographed arriving at the ceremony.  

The hour-long service included five eulogies, one from Ledger's father Kim and another from his sister Kate, as well as director Todd Haynes, the Seven Network reported.

Singer Ben Harper performed at the hour long service, and Neil Young's Old Man played as a slide show was played.

Director Todd Haynes, who directed Ledger in last year's Bob Dylan film, I'm Not There, spoke at the ceremony.

People said many of those who attended were connected to CAA, the agency that represented Ledger, or were former co-stars, including Shannyn Sossamon who starred alongside Ledger in A Knight's Tale.

The ceremony follows a private family memorial a week earlier, which was also attended by Michelle Williams, Ledger's former fiancee and mother of his two-year-old daughter Matilda, and another ex-girlfriend Naomi Watts.

It is expected that Ledger's family will return to their hometown of Perth with his body early this week.

Playboy Superbowl Party..no invite?

Yep, we are staying in this weekend. The one invite from the Playboy Mansion my husband actually WANTED me to get...and it doesn't come! Poor guy! I was sad for him, because I had assumed I would be invited from being on their cover last month.(and in 06) So, we didn't make any plans other than that. I told him, either it got lost in the mail, or Perez Hilton was right...just a few months late? ; ) lol Hard not to feel a bit of a snub, especially after showing off my new kids and bare ass in last months edition! That's ok. I have been invited to all the others! ; )


Oh well, at least I am getting my Eleanor Rigby (new cat) this Sunday! I figured I would set it up this way so I would have other things to think about. Who needs Playboy when you have a kitty to appreciate ya? A nice fuzzy wuzzy pussy wussy! It will be nice to put our feet up and kick back.

Days of Demanding Divas Are Numbered?!?!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic




The penthouse suites and room temperature-attendants demanded by pop divas are no longer a formula for success in an industry hit by downloading.

After a series of flopped albums and cancelled record deals, star singers are in the process of being "rebranded" by an American record mogul who says they have to wake up to the new harsh realities.

Antonio "L. A." Reid, boss of Island Def Jam, said: "We have to operate as if we're spending money from our own bank accounts instead of operating like there is some endless well."

Ominously for the divas, Reid told Music Week: "It's good business to know that for every dime we spend, we are looking for a return."

The Grammy Award winner's warning follows upheaval at EMI, where Guy Hands, the financier who bought the company for £3.2 billion, told stars that the days of multimillion-pound advances were over.

Robbie Williams promptly went "on strike", Radiohead walked out and the Rolling Stones took their latest album to Universal Music, parent company of Island Def Jam. EMI executives shudder at the mention of Mariah Carey, who was given an $82 million (£41.9 million) deal in 2001 but was rapidly paid off with $28 million.

Carey, 37, who has sold 150 million records, will soon release a "sexed-up" single called "Touch My Body." But the star, who once rolled up in Shanghai with four cars full of luggage, including 350 pairs of shoes, may not have grasped the bean counters' message. Last month she summoned Q magazine to the bedroom of her $3,000-a-night hotel suite overlooking Manhattan and said: "I've never done one divaish thing in my life."

Janet Jackson, 41, famed for her lavish videos and high-tempo dance routines, never recovered from her "wardrobe malfunction" at the Super Bowl in 2004. She quit EMI in 2006 after her album Y.O. sold only 12,000 copies in Britain. Appropriately, after shedding the 60lb she gained for a film role, Jackson's comeback album is called Discipline.

If the day of the diva is over, it does not bode well for Jennifer Lopez. The singer's notorious demands have required rooms to be redecorated at a moment's notice. Brave, her latest album, was her lowest seller despite substantial investment by SonyBMG.


Reid says that he can put Carey and Jackson back at the top as "talent always wins in the end". The Emancipation of Mimi, Carey's successful album for Universal from 2005, helped to reestablish her with fans.

Reid told Music Week: "Mariah's a true songwriter.

With Janet, we spend more time with the producers and writers finding ideas that appeal to her and that she can get into. Whatever it takes, I'll do it."

All I Wanna Do Iz Listen to Yuz

Coxon's in studio
This week has seen the rumoured Blur reunion hit the headlines almost everyday.

Early in the week we reported that bassist Alex James had been talking about it, saying that the band had met before Christmas for dinner and were on speaking terms: "We are all talking... you know it's great, we have all gone on to do other things, it would be a disaster to think there would never be another Blur record."

We caught up with Graham at the launch of the Crisis Consequences charity single on the South Bank midweek, and he said much the same thing: "Steps have been made to talk though. I phoned everyone and all four of us met up last year and it was nice. It was small talk really, like you do with friends. Very odd."

He continued: "We haven’t discussed anything like recording but it might happen when everyone’s ready."

However, frontman Damon Albarn was reported yesterday to have said that the band split because the rest of the band 'hate' him and don't want to work with him. He seemed to put all the rumours to rest: "I had dinner with the guys recently and it was laugh but there’s no way they want to work with me again – they all hate me... A reunion is not going to happen."

"I am just gonna sit and wait for the sun to come out" - Graham Coxon

All this Blur news aside, Graham has always been an active solo artist since releasing The Sky Is Too High in 1998 whilst still with the band. Happiness in Magazines is his highest charting album to date, reaching number 19 in the UK in 2004.

Graham told us his seventh album is well underway: "I'm going to record in a couple of weeks and then release it really and that’s it. I am just gonna sit and wait for the sun to come out."

Graham went on to say that it's a concept album which he hopes to release in the summer, he explained the rather interesting story line: "It's about a man who is born in um, possibly the fifties. Grows up, meets a girl, gets married, then has to go to war and gets really knackered up and then has a divorce and then goes mad and then er dies and goes to heaven."

He claims to have written a load of songs already: "I've written an awful lot and they've gone into two piles. I am concentrating on one element of what I do more than the other. I think I got to a point on the last record where I covered that really and I want to concentrate on some other preoccupations, it's about those."

New episodes of Grey's & DH in April or May?!!?

Paging the casts of Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives... you're needed back on set, STAT!

With a tentative agreement between striking writers and Hollywood moguls expected to be announced sometime this week, my moles at Grey's tell me that production on the show is expected to resume in early March. The plan is to shoot four or five episodes to air in April/May.

A similar scenario is expected to play out at two other ABC hits, Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters. Conversely, freshman shows that have already been given full-season pickups (i.e. Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money, Samantha Who?) will likely restart production over the summer ahead of a fall relaunch. Expect a similar pattern to play out at CBS, NBC and Fox: Established shows returning in the spring; newer ones held till fall. The fate of heavily serialized shows like Lost, Heroes and 24 remains unclear. Source

First the peen posts and now this...... 

hallelujah ! hallelujah ! hallelujah !

LOL MCG WANTS DAY-LEWIS



Charlie's Angels director MCG has his sights set on Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis for his Terminator sequel. The filmmaker already has Christian Bale onboard the sci-fi project, Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, and now he's hoping There Will Be Blood star Day-Lewis will sign up for his first blockbuster action movie. MCG, real name Joseph MCGinty Nichol, tells WENN, "I'm looking for credible actors. We've already got Christian Bale, who is one of the greatest actors of his generation. "I'd love to get Daniel Day-Lewis, but I don't know if he goes in for this kind of movie." The 39-year-old faces a tough task winning the British actor over - he famously leaves lengthy intervals between movie projects, and rarely takes on big budget projects. It has already been confirmed California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be reprising his iconic Terminator role in the movie, which is set for release in 2009.

Sarah's Bid For Solo Fame

SARAH HARDING is making moves behind the scenes to launch a solo career away from GIRLS ALOUD.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Manc caner has been in touch with a select group of top music managers to sound them out in a bid to secure solo success after her girl band dream ends.

But so far she has been knocked back by operators including the team who put LILY ALLEN on the map and made NATASHA BEDINGFIELD a big name in the US.

An insider said: “Sarah has had an eye on her future for a long time. She knows girl bands only have a short shelf-life and that the dream wouldn’t last for ever.

“She has gone to the best in the business to see if they would be interested in masterminding her solo career. She has her heart set on being Britain’s answer to KYLIE MINOGUE.

“The response hasn’t been quite what she expected. She thought people would jump at the chance to take her on – but it hasn’t quite worked out like that.”


Sarah certainly is a handful and the one I would tip for success. She has the right personality and that all-important sex appeal.

I would imagine a few music bosses could be put off by her late-night antics – but if I was a record boss I’d take the gamble.

It’s no coincidence that Sarah’s solo intentions have emerged as her b a n d m a t e CHERYL COLE’s life has gone into meltdown. The next 12 months suddenly look a bit grim for the band since Cheryl’s life was thrown into turmoil.

The Geordie lass all blokes love – except presumably the man who charmed her – is staring at a potential divorce battle with Chelsea numbnuts ASHLEY COLE.

The band have a single coming out soon, one more album in the pipeline and a string of hugely lucrative commercial contracts this year.

But all the girls have other issues and commitments on the horizon.

NADINE COYLE has her eye on Hollywood and is building up contacts in LA. One man watching with a keen eye is LOUIS WALSH – he has been circling Nadine for years, waiting for his chance to take her on his books.

NICOLA ROBERTS has her own make-up range, leaving KIMBERLEY WALSH as the only one who needs to keep the band going.

If Sarah doesn’t have a solo single out in the next 18 months, Ashley Cole is a good bloke.

John Mayer Does The 80ies Prom!!

Written by Michelle Collins

(Note: This post will be much more enjoyable if read while wearing your favorite 1989 Meshach Taylor/Summer School sunglasses.)

The Mayercraft Carrier so far is going swimmingly… not literally, of course, as in that case we would be sinking. On Saturday, the boat docked in the Bahamas, and the BWE crew took a break from the slowest internet connection on the planet to head over to a pretty spectacular beach in order to work on our sunglasses tan. On the way over to the beach, we shared a van with two soccer-mommish ladies from Lincoln, Nebraska, who were in better moods than we had ever been in our entire lives. The conversation began innocently enough — talk of locations, cruise food, etc. — but quickly devolved into the most base of exchanges: What Does John Mayer’s Ass Probably Look Like? The gals from Nebraska quickly intimated that his ass is probably kind of flat, while I personally took the high road, instead discussing what Jon Bon Jovi’s ass probably looks like (two baby apples in a pleather sack, for the record.) Nebraska Mom #1 settled the argument by saying “Who cares what his ass looks like? It’s what those lips can do that I care about!” and then shrieked with laughter for the remainder of the trip, while the rest of the van learned the definition of “collective shudder.”

4 hours of beach time tucked firmly under our sunburns — and 15 minutes of myself and Brian Faas realizing that “Ocean Trampoline” is actually code for “Quick and Bloodless Death” — we realized we had to get back to the ship in order to prepare for our most anticipated event of the weekend… THE 80s PROM!

Moody & depressed: Jess walks out on Cash

After a series of explosive rows over her pregnancy, Jessica Alba has walked out on her fiancé Cash Warren, vowing she'll never have another baby.

Sources say the couple, whose first child is due in May, have been arguing nonstop over nearly every detail of parenthood.

Eventually, sick of the constant conflict, the mum-to-be decided to go to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah without her man.

"Jessica was so distraught that she fled LA — and Cash — and took off for Sundance alone," says a friend. "She's telling everyone that she just needs time away. It's an act. Jessica's secretly a wreck."

After a few days of being apart, Cash eventually decided to follow Jess to Sundance. But it may have been too little, too late. "She feels like she's in her pregnancy alone," says the source.

Adds another friend, "They can't agree on anything anymore. Jessica picks a baby name and Cash says 'no way'. Then any name Cash thinks is cool, Jessica thinks is stupid."

The source says before they knew they were going to be parents, Cash and Jess had been struggling to get their relationship back on track. The couple's romance had been rocked by a Russian model's claims Cash was cheating on Jess with her.

"The baby was a bandaid measure," says the source. "They thought that having a baby together would help."

NEW YORK GIANTS DEFEAT PATRIOTS IN SUPERBOWL 42!



GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Giants had the perfect answer for the suddenly imperfect Patriots: a big, bad defense and an improbable comeback led by their own Mr. Cool quarterback, Eli Manning.

In one of football's biggest shockers, New York shattered New England's unbeaten season as Manning hit Plaxico Burress on a 13-yard fade with 35 seconds left in the Super Bowl. Sunday's 17-14 win was the Giants' 11th straight on the road, and the first time the Patriots tasted defeat in more than a year.

It was the most bitter of losses, too, because New England (18-1) was one play from winning, but its defense couldn't stop a 12-play, 83-yard drive that featured a spectacular leaping catch by David Tyree, who scored New York's first touchdown.

Tom Brady, the league's Most Valuable Player and winner of his first three Super Bowls, was battered all game. He was sacked five times, hurried a dozen more, and at one point wound up on his knees, his hands on his hips following one of many poor throws.

Hardly a familiar position for the record-setting quarterback. And a totally strange outcome for a team that seemed destined for historic glory.

Oddly, it was a loss to the Patriots that sparked New York's stunning run to its third Super Bowl and sixth NFL title. New England won 38-35 in Week 17 as the Patriots became the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to go spotless through the regular season. But by playing hard in a meaningless game for them, the Giants gained something of a swagger.

Their growing confidence carried them through playoff victories at Tampa, Dallas and Green Bay, and then past the mightiest opponent of all.



To the Patriots: Great game! Congrats to you, too. ILU boys!

    THE SWEET SOUND OF VICTORY! (NVM.)

Dogfight in Court Tomorrow Over Brit

Photobucket

TMZ has learned tomorrow is shaping up to be an all-out war in the Britney Spears conservatorship case. Sources say lawyers for Britney will try to convince the Commissioner that Britney "feels hatred" toward her dad, doesn't trust him and wants him removed as co-conservator.

Here's the way it's gone down this weekend. Yesterday, a lawyer for Trope and Trope (Brit's divorce/custody attorneys) went to UCLA to visit Britney. After being there a short time, one of the staff doctors asked the attorney to leave, because the co-conservators objected to the visit.

Sources say tomorrow, Trope and Trope will appear at the court hearing. Along with attorney Adam Streisand, who specializes in estate law, and ask that both co-conservators be removed. They will argue that the appointment of Jamie in particular is inappropriate given Britney's bitter feelings toward him and that Britney wants him out.

On Friday, the Commish appointed Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet as co-conservators. Trope lawyers and Streisand will ask that both conservators be replaced.

Sources say the Trope firm will not object to a conservatorship for Britney, but they'll ask that a different conservator be appointed. We're told the Trope lawyers and Streisand have not finalized who they want to replace the current conservators.

Britney's Love-Hate Relationship with Dad

Britney Spears has expressed hatred towards her father -- that, we know. Yet sources say today she asked that both of her parents be at her bedside. And that could create problems for the Trope firm when they go to court tomorrow and ask Jamie be 86'd as conservator.

Britney is bipolar and has wild mood swings. She can love someone and hate them in the same hour. So just because she told Trope lawyers this weekend that she hates her dad -- it may not be enough to convince the Commish.

But here's what Trope may have going for it. Britney has expressed deep animus toward her dad for a long time and to many people. We know the Trope firm is attempting to put together an arsenal of witnesses who will try and convince the Commissioner that the hatred and distrust toward her dad is consistent over time.

Question

Spencer and Heidi need bodyguards? Come on now.



In Vegas, I don’t have to worry about photographers waiting outside my house every day because they can’t wait outside my hotel room,” Spencer Pratt, a star of the MTV reality series “The Hills,” said in early January as he and Heidi Montag, his co-star and girlfriend, posed for photos on a red carpet on the way to an event that they were paid to attend at the Jet nightclub at the Mirage.

“When we travel here we have bodyguards, there are people with earpieces making sure there aren’t any photos we don’t want, making sure there’s no problems,” Mr. Pratt said. “I’m sure a lot of celebrities come out to Vegas because it’s like a hide-out, it’s a getaway.”

Britney's mom will fuck you up



Britney Spears‘ fragile mental state is apparently taking it’s toll on Mama Lynne Spears. As Lynne and Papa Jamie Spears arrived at UCLA Medical Center yesterday to visit their daughter, an overzealous paparazzo gets a little too close for comfort and Lynne smacks the camera away as Jamie comes to her rescue and tells the cameraman to “Get out of her face…get out of her face…I mean now.”

As they leave the hospital, Jamie and Lynne can be seen arguing with someone through the window of a black SUV. Sam Lutfi maybe? He was seen in a black SUV at the hospital in this TMZ video.

On Friday, Britney’s dad was granted temporary control over her affairs.

LILY Allen spent a few enlightening hours this week watching her kid brother parade around naked. The pop sensation attended "Equus" to see the London debut of Alfie Allen, who took over for "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe. But watching her sibling cavort with an equally nude Laura O'Toole may have been a bit much. While Lily said she was "proud" of Alfie's acting, when asked what it was like to view him in his birthday suit, she blushed and refused to answer.

That awkward guy from the OC/Quintuplets is a scientologist!

My daughter just told me that last night she and her boyfriend went to see a movie starring one of their friends. Because it was Christmas Day yesterday and usually Christmas type movies are, well, Christmasy, I expected it to be a romantic comedy or a feel-good "It's a Wonderful Life" type movie. But I should have known better. Although my daughter does enjoy romantic comedies, she has a definite preference for sci-fi, fantasy and horror. So the movie she went to see was "Aliens versus Predator: Requiem". A nice peaceful, uplifting, Christmasy movie if ever there was one :)

Anyway, to get to the point of this post, the movie stars one of her friends, a guy she went to school with and did much of her early Scientology training with, Johnny Lewis. Not only is he one of the leads in the movie but, more importantly, he survives to the end. Quite a feat when you consider he is up against aliens and predators and only Sigourney Weaver, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny Glover and a couple other stars have survived such encounters. Way to go Johnny!

Miley Cyrus' True BFFs




and it's not these hussies

Being BFFs with Miley Cyrus means understanding that she needs downtime with her family. She wants you to be able to chill with your parents and siblings, too!

Her closest friends Mitchel Musso and Emily Osment, Nick Jonas and Lesley Patterson all have an important place in Miley's life. She told BOP magazine:

"No one messes with me and my family. We're so tight. They come first and foremost."

Miley Ray likes to talk about anything and everything with her friends:

"Emily Osment and I will just talk and talk, and then usually we can't be quiet. Emily's dad will always get onto us when we can't be quiet."

Miley says that confidence is key in being a superstar:

"You don't have to fall into everything that everyone else is doing. I try my hardest just to stay grounded"

Emily Osment on Miley, 'she's really easy to have fun with. She's crazy and will do just anything.'

Mitchel Musso says, 'she's one of my best friends. It could just be her and me in a room with a pencil and we'd be satisfied. We have so much fun doing anything."

Nick Jonas only reveals, 'she's a cool girl. We enjoy each others company.'

Katie Price Furious Over Nanny Lies



FURIOUS JORDAN last night slammed her ex-nanny for rubbishing her skills as a mum.

A pal told how the glamour model, 29, “hit the roof” after Becky Gauld, 25, yesterday scoffed at her Celebrity Mum of the Year tag and accused her of being “selfish”.

The busty mum – who hours before the claims were made partied without hubby PETER ANDRE at central London nightclubs – called the allegations “a total pack of lies”.

The pal said: “Jordan is understandably in a terrible state over this made-up nonsense.”

Jordan who has had four boob ops – three enhancements and one reduction – has begun legal action over the claims.

Last year Becky won £4,000 for unfair dismissal by Jordan.

Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging Trailer



ANGUS, THONGS AND FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING is a hilarious coming of age story - Gurinder Chadha's very British take on American high school movies like 'Clueless' and ‘Mean Girls’. Based on the International best-selling series of books by Louise Rennison, the film follows the eccentric and irresistible GEORGIA NICOLSON as she overcomes the trauma of being a teenager and moves up the ‘snogging scale’. 

Edit. Thanks to Frenchmoodle for letting me know it has been put on youtube.


IMO, I have say Robbie looks like a Sex God, but other than that, it looks like somewhat of a let down to true georiga fans. What do you think?

First Look at James Franco in "Milk"

So since the new Harvey Milk biopic directed by Gus Van Sant that's filming right now in San Francisco has hired approximately 293752352397 extras, a bunch of people have taken photos of the cast and crew, but these are the first really good pics of James Franco I've seen. The film also stars Diego Luna, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, Lucas Grabeel and Victor Garber. The title character, Harvey Milk, is played by Sean Penn. These are mostly of him and James.

Heath Ledger To Be Buried With Grandparents

Heath Ledger will be laid to rest next to his grandparents at Karakatta cemetery in Perth.

Ledger's parents, Kim and Sally, will hold a private ceremony for their son in Perth this week, but the funeral will not take place at Guildford Grammar, Heath's old school.

The family declined the offer from the school to avoid the public attention that the death has created. Ledger's co-star in Brokeback Mountain, Jake Gyllenhaal is expected to attend.

In a memorial service in Los Angeles on the weekend at Sony Pictures, more than 1000 mourners said goodbye to Heath.


The service was attended by Tom Cruise, Ellen DeGeneres and Ledger's former girlfriend Naomi Watts. His friend and business partner Ben Harper performed at the service. Director Todd Haynes, who made Ledger's recent film 'I'm Not There', gave a eulogy.

Ledger died on January 22nd. The New York Medical Examiner's Office is expected to release the finding from the autopsy by midweek.

The bolded parts are what I thought people might be interested in the most. I also think it says a lot about Heath and his family that he's being buried there and not in a way that showed off his celebrity status, I guess. IDK if that makes sense.

aaron carter needs to stop being pathetic


Aaron Carter has updated his official My Space profile with a cryptic message for "Hilary"

His message: "EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES, BUT YOU LIVE AND YOU LEARN. HILARY WHEN YOUR READY. IM HERE. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR WHOMEVER PUT THIS TOGETHER. IT MEANS A LOT TO ME."

what did you just say little boy

The thank you is in regards to a You Tube video that some fan named SCSweetdude16 in tribute to the love that Aaron and Hilary used to share when they were together and wishes they still shared today ... and is posted right underneath his message (click HERE to watch it -- it'll make more sense). Hahhahahaha ... could a reconciliation be in the works? Could Aaron and Hilary make it work again? I guess only time will tell ... and perhaps in the meantime Aaron will learn the difference between "your" and "you're" and will learn how to use the right one properly.
