Jordan Knight Sighting!!

I work at Barnes & Noble just south of Boston and JORDAN KNIGHT came in tonight! I was the first one to recognize him, so I asked him if he needed help. He wouldn't look me in the eye, kept his head down and appeared to want to go unnoticed. I helped him find The Birth of Venus and then let him be. I didn't really want to bother him, so I didn't get to ask about the rumored reunion or get a picture with him.

Edit: I think I may have gotten myself in MAJOR trouble. I apologize.

Edit 2.0: So my manager and I discussed the situation- and basically I still have a job- for now. So I would like to thank whoever took the liberty of calling my manager and telling them for having my job threatened. Yes, I posted the pictures, yes, it is my fault. I can't blame anyone for that. But I just need to say how incredibly SHITTY it is that someone had the time to call my manager on me. I didn't steal any documents, I didn't do anything that I was aware was inappropriate. I may be a bit naieve on that aspect, and no, I wouldn't have posted them if I was aware how much DRAMA this has caused in my life.

Thank you.

Kate Hudson to star in 'Big Eyes'


Actress to play painter Margaret Keane in film
 

Kate Hudson is set to star in "Big Eyes," the independently financed film about painter Margaret Keane.

Pic marks the feature directing debut of Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski; the duo also penned the script (Daily Variety, Oct. 15).

 

Production is tentatively slated for June, depending on the prospects for the resolution of a new SAG contract.

 

Hudson will play Keane, the painter whose distinctive creations featuring big-eyed children became one of art's first mass-market success stories in the 1950s. The drama covers Keane's personal awakening at the onset of the feminist movement, leading to a lawsuit she filed against her husband, Walter, who claimed credit for her works.

 

The film is being produced by Dan Halsted, Bonafide partners Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa, and Andrew Meieran, the latter of whom put up the financing on the film through his Bureau of Moving Pictures banner.

 

The producers just engaged Nicolas Chartier's Voltage Pictures to broker territory sales at the European Film Market in Berlin. Domestic rights will be sold later.

 

Voltage, started by Chartier and Dean Devlin in 2005, just wrapped the Kathryn Bigelow-directed "The Hurt Locker," and will be in Berlin repping "Phoebe in Wonderland," "Spread" and the horror pic "Open Graves."

 

Hudson, who opens Friday opposite Matthew McConaughey in the Andy Tennant-directed "Fool's Gold," next stars in the Gary Winick-directed New Regency comedy "Bride Wars."

 

Alexander and Karaszewski penned "1408" and "Ed Wood."

Spin Magazine Argues For Pete's Credibility



" Be it resolved that Peter Doherty is an artist worthy of more than tabloid headlines and American ignorance. This is the proposition put forth on the cover of the February issue of Spin, and these are the arguments advanced by Nick Duerden in his lengthy, entertaining and ultimately sad profile:

1. He's a gifted songwriter. Duerden argues that he's "capable of penning the kind of songs whose firework momentum can spawn entire movements, romanticizing working-class England in a way that inspired like-minded, hyper-verbal young bands."

2. He's an aspiring novelist. The manuscript in question is a "sizzling Gypsy tale, a rambling, shambling melody of a novel that came about when I was still on the old fighting juice."

3. He's charming, if slightly disingenuous. "My tabloid caricature is nothing more than a horrible, cartoonlike f---ing monster that bears no resemblance to the quiet, shy and retiring, teetotal, police-loving, clean-nosed poet you see before you now," he says. We learn immediately after that The Sun is about to go to press with a three-day-old picture of Doherty injecting heroin.

4. He's chivalrous. "I'm helping Amy with rehab? Is that supposed to be sarcastic? Anyway, look, I can't talk about her; it wouldn't be fair."

5. He may be his own worst enemy, but there are plenty of runners-up. "Pete fatigue" in the U.K. is such that radio stations won't play his records. (Why doesn't this happen to Britney?) As well, 18 arrests in five years mean he'll never get to tour in the States. And finally, it was reported that local drug dealers beat him up because he refused to buy their wares.

6. He's a cliche, but he knows it. When asked about a feud with a former record label, he deftly mocks his own response. " 'How do I feel about it?' he repeats. 'I feel nothing, because (a) um, and (b) well, know what I mean?' " "

Michael Jackson will attend the Grammys



Pop superstar Michael Jackson will appear at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, but he won't be singing at the ceremony.

Jackson was rumored to be attending the Los Angeles bash to promote a 25th anniversary re-release of his seminal album, Thriller, and organizers were keen for the star to duet on hits from the LP with a number of contemporary performers, including Will.I.Am, Akon, Kanye West and Fergie.

But Jackson, who hasn't performed live in seven years, was reluctant to take on such a big project at short notice.

A source tells the New York Post, "Michael can't go along with that. He needs more time to rehearse new versions of the songs. And everything requires new choreography."

The Post reveals that Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich backed down and consented for Jackson to just appear onstage.

ITS BRITNEY


The Tragedy of Britney Spears 







A pop star at the mall is an eternal cause for happiness, especially on a Sunday afternoon in the Valley. One moment, shoppers in the Westfield Topanga mall are living in the real world, monotonously selecting a new shade of eye shadow or rubbing perfume on wrists, but upon the rapture of Britney Spears, they are giggling, laughing, orgasmic, already sharing their secret on cell phones. "Her legs are actually really skinny," an adolescent whispers into her Sidekick, as Britney beelines for the Betsey Johnson boutique, pseudo-punk designer of evening dresses and splashy heels worn to suburban high school proms. In person, Britney is shockingly beautiful — clear skin, ruby lips, a perfectly proportioned twenty-six-year-old porcelain doll with a nasty weave. She cuts through the crowd swiftly, the way she used to when 20,000 adoring fans mobbed her outside a concert, with her paparazzi boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, trailing behind.

Only a few kids are in the store, a young girl with her brother and two blondes checking out fake-gold charm bracelets. Britney rifles the racks as the Cure's "Pictures of You" blasts into the airless pink boutique, grabbing a pink lace dress, a few tight black numbers and a frilly red crop top, the kind of shirt that Britney used to wear all the time at seventeen but isn't really appropriate for anyone over that age. Then she ducks into the dressing room with Ghalib. He emerges with her black Am Ex.

The card won't go through, but they keep trying it.

"Please," begs Ghalib, "get this done quickly."

One of the girls runs to Britney's dressing room, explaining the situation through a pink gauze curtain.

A wail emerges from the cubby — guttural, vile, the kind of base animalistic shriek only heard at a family member's deathbed. "Fuck these bitches," screams Britney, each word ringing out between sobs. "These idiots can't do anything right!"

Ghalib dashes over to console her, but she's already spitting, growling, throwing a big bottle of soda on the floor so that it begins to spill underneath the curtain, and then she's got a box of tissues and is throwing them on top of the wet floor along with piles of discarded merchandise. A new card finally goes through, but by then Britney is out the door, leaving her shirt on the ground and replacing it with the red top. "Fuck you, fuck people, fuck, fuck, fuck," she keeps screaming, her face splotchy and red as she crosses the interminable mall floor, the crowd behind her growing larger and larger. "Leave us alone!" yells Ghalib.

The siblings run after Britney to get a video to put up on YouTube, and some of the shopgirls run after her to hand off the merchandise she left behind, and there's an entire bridal party wearing yellow T-shirts who have pulled out camera phones too. A crush of managers in black shirts and gold name tags try to keep the peace, but the crowd running after Britney gets larger, and now the shopgirls have ­started to catch up to her, one of them slipping spectacularly in her platform shoes, grazing her elbow. She pulls herself up, mustering the strength to tap Britney's shoulder. "Um, I'm from the South too," she mumbles, "and I was wondering if I could get a picture with you for my little sister."

Britney turns to Ghalib and grabs his arm. "I don't want her talking to me!" she screams. She whirls around and stares the girl deep in the eyes, her lips almost vibrating with anger. "I don't know who you think I am, bitch," she snarls, "but I'm not that person."

Rebecca De Mornay drinks, drives, and is punished...



Rebecca De Mornay
must serve three years probation after a no contest plea was entered Tuesday on her behalf to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge
H. Chester Horn also ordered the 48-year-old actress to complete a three-month program for DUI offenders and pay $350 plus unspecified penalties.

Defense attorney Blair Berk entered the plea on the behalf of De Mornay, who wasn't in the courtroom for the brief hearing. A second DUI charge was dismissed as a result of the plea, said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

De Mornay was arrested Oct. 30 for a traffic violation in Beverly Hills when officers smelled alcohol on her breath.

De Mornay is best known for playing the prostitute who befriends Tom Cruise's high school student in the 1983 film "Risky Business." She also starred in the HBO surf drama "John From Cincinnati" and the films "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle," "Lords of Dogtown" and "American Venus."

Justin Timberlake: Out in NYC



Fresh off of raving reviews for his role in the hilarious Pepsi/Amazon “Magnetic Attraction” ad that aired during the Super Bowl, Justin Timberlake was spotted spending some time out in New York City on Monday.

According to an insider, the “Like I Love You” singer busied himself shooting his new video with Madonna before spending some time with his sweetheart Jessica Biel.

Then JT headed over to his Big Apple restaurant Southern Hospitality to celebrate the debut of his ad, looking like a true rock star in his black leather coat, wool scarf and belted distressed jeans as he chatted nonchalantly with the closely-following paparazzi.

Later, Timberlake headed over to an exclusive A-list celebrity party at Butter, where stars like Sophia Bush were dancing the night away.

Heath Ledger's Family Speaks Out On Official Cause of Death

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Heath Ledger's father, Kim, has released the below statement following the news of the late actor's cause of death:

We remain humble as parents and a family, among millions of people worldwide who may have suffered the tragic loss of a child. Few can understand the hollow, wrenching, and enduring agony parents silently suffer when a child predeceases them. Today's results put an end to speculation, but our son's beautiful spirit and enduring memory will forever remain in our hearts.

While no medications were taken in excess, we learned today the combination of doctor-prescribed drugs proved lethal for our boy. Heath's accidental death serves as a caution to the hidden dangers of combining prescription medication, even at low dosage.

Our family enjoyed an extremely happy two week visit with Heath just prior to the New Year. Those recent precious days will stay with us forever. We as a family feel privileged to have some of his amazing magic moments captured in film. To most of the world Heath was an actor of immeasurable talent and promise. To those who knew him personally, Heath was a consummate artist whose passions also included photography, music, chess and directing. We knew Heath as a loving father, as our devoted son, and as a loyal and generous brother and friend.

We treasure our beautiful granddaughter Matilda (to our dear Michelle) as well as an unbelievably wonderful network of close friends, forever, around the world. Families rarely experience the uplifting, warm and massive outpouring of grief and support as have we, from every corner of the planet. This has deeply and profoundly touched our hearts and lives. We are eternally grateful.

At this moment we respectfully request the worldwide media allow us time to grieve privately, without the intrusions associated with press and photography.

Casey Affleck Starring in 'Kind One'



Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone) is starring in the period noir drama The Kind One, which is based on Tom Epperson's novel of the same name. The story is about an amnesiac (Affleck) in 1930s Los Angeles who starts working for a violent mobster, ironically nicknamed ''the Kind One,'' and subsequently falls in love with his boss's girlfriend. Epperson will write the screenplay from his novel when the writers' strike is over. The project will reunite Affleck with Gone Baby Gone producer Sean Bailey, who is producing. Affleck is up for a Supporting Actor Oscar this year of his role in The Assassination of Jesse James.

Never heard of the book, but he impressed the hell out of me in both his movies this year, so I'd see it. His kid has the best extended family EVER, btw.

Flavor Flav to Star in Sitcom

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MyNetworkTV is returning to the scripted arena with a new half-hour comedy series starring rap artist and reality-TV star Flavor Flav.

The network has ordered 13 episodes of "Under One Roof," a show that network president Greg Meidel describes as "a classic fish-out-of-water story."

Flav plays Calvester Hill, a former convict who moves in with his wealthy, conservative brother, Walter (Kelly Perine). Calvester turns the Hill family's life upside down, parading his old prison cronies through the house, teaching his nephew to be a gangsta rapper and butting heads with Walter's snooty wife.

"Roof" is directed by Brian Roberts and written by Danielle Quarles and Gelila Asres, non-Writers Guild of America writers. The show is in production in Toronto for a spring debut.

Flav, who was a founding member of hip-hop group Public Enemy, has starred in the reality series "The Surreal Life," "Strange Love" and "Flavor of Love."

MyNetworkTV launched in September 2006 with a lineup comprising only scripted drama strips but abandoned that format last year in favor of reality shows and theatrical acquisitions. "Roof" marks the network's first scripted sitcom.

Jamie Oliver gets the shaft



Sainsbury's turns its nose up at Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver, the advertising face of Sainsbury's, has been snubbed by the supermarket chain, which has refused to stock most of his new food range.

The celebrity chef is to launch this month a range of 40 herbs, pasta, salads and sauces under his name.

The enterprise, the biggest he has undertaken, is part of his attempt to establish a leading brand in the fresh food market.

However, while Tesco is stocking all the new products, Sainsbury's has yet to commit to taking any of the range.

The company says that it is likely to put a handful of the new jars and packets on its shelves.

A spokesman for the supermarket, which pays £1.2 million a year to Oliver, said: "As with all of our new products, we look to see if there is a point of difference to our existing ranges.

"The guy clearly has a lot of credibility in some areas, but with some of the lines we just can't see the difference."

She said the supermarket might stock some of the pasta sauces, but was unlikely to take the bagged salads. The herbs and spices - such as pink Himalayan salt - are also unlikely to be sold by Sainsbury's.

White Stripes are being sued

White Stripes sued for sampling radio show
Sample appears on 2000 album 'De Stijl'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The White Stripes are being sued for $70,000 for sampling a Canadian radio show eight years ago.

Quebec radio host Dominique Payette says that the duo used a ten-second sample from her radio show without permission, and claims her privacy has been violated.

The sample appears on the track called 'Jumble, Jumble' from the band’s second album, 2000's 'De Stijl'.

Payette is suing the band, Third Man Records and BMG Music Publishing Canada and according to Pitchfork, is seeking an injunction that could see the album withdrawn from stores.

As previously reported, White Stripes mainman Jack White's other band The Raconteurs are on the bill for this year's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, taking place between April 25-27 and May 1-4.

Craig Ferguson to host White House Correspondents' Dinner

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Less than a week after being sworn in as a U.S. citizen, Craig Ferguson learned he'll be telling jokes to President Bush.

The CBS "Late Late Show" host revealed Tuesday that he's been booked as the entertainer at the annual White House correspondents' dinner in Washington, scheduled April 26.


Ferguson, a Scotsman, recently passed an American citizenship test and was formally sworn in Friday. For his late-night viewers, he described the correspondents' dinner as "like the Oscars for politicians."

It's also potential trouble for comics: Don Imus and Stephen Colbert both provoked some criticism for their pointed political jokes.

"There are 2,800 journalists in attendance, there (are) congressman, senators there, military brass, the Cabinet and I sit at the top table with the president and the first lady," Ferguson said. "And I am thinking, `Does he know I can't be kicked out now?'"

"I thought it would be the big thing, have the dinner and `as my last act as president, you go home, Ferguson,'" the 45-year-old talk-show host said. "And I'll say, `I am home!'"


Looks like the White House got over the Colbert scare. Hopefully, Ferguson will be just as biting.

Delta Burke in Psychiatric Hospital

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Delta Burke has been in a psychiatric hospital since checking herself in last week, reports TMZ.com.

The former Designing Women star, 51, is apparently seeking treatment for symptoms of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and "hoarding" which on an audio clip provided by TMZ she is heard likening to what is seen in the homes of people who have stockpiled row upon row of newspapers.

"I was on so many medications and they just weren't working," Burke is also heard saying on the clip. "I was on five." Among them, she says are "anti-depressants and stuff."

Calls placed by PEOPLE to Burke's agent and to her manager were not immediately returned.

Burke's most recent role was on Bridal Fever, which aired on the Hallmark Channel last Saturday. She costarred with her real-life husband of 18 years, Gerald McRaney.

"Mac loves me no matter what," Burke said in a statement from the Hallmark Channel and reported by the Associated Press.

"He loved me when I got as big as a house," she said. "He loved me when I was a blonde. He didn't tell me he hated it until I went back to brunette. He has loved me through my up times and my down times. He still thinks my body looks great, and I can certifiably tell you it does not!"

While a smoking Heigl moves their other SUV into the garage, Kelley removes two guitars – miraculously untouched – from the backseat of the burglarized vehicle, amazed at the luck.

KIRSTEN DUNST IN REHAB!


Kirsten Dunst has checked herself into Cirque Lodge in Utah, Star has learned exclusively.

Spider-Man's Mary Jane made the decision to follow in the footsteps of Cirque patients such as Lindsay Lohan and Richie Sambora — after a week of wild parties at last month's Sundance Film Festival.  Fellow actress Eva Mendes is also in the mountaintop facility right now. Mary-Kate Olsen was treated at Cirque for food issues.

"She desperately needed help," a source in Utah tells Star. "She seemed to be intoxicated when she checked in because she was acting really erratic. She was extremely emotional, constantly breaking down in tears.

"She not in a good place right now, but thankfully, she's getting the help she needs."

Kirsten, 25, has long had a reputation for partying, with bloggers giving her the unfortunate nickname of Kirsten Drunkst.


ETA: This report conflicts with an item from the New York Post

February 1, 2008 -- KIRSTEN Dunst's strange ways have tongues wagging that she's "on the verge of a breakdown." The starlet came late, left early, and "acted erratic" during a recent event at Sundance, according to insiders. The source added that friends of the actress made apologies on her behalf, saying, "Kirsten is not in a good place right now." Dunst, who split from Razorlight rocker boyfriend Johnny Borell last year, has not been photographed or spotted out in recent weeks. A rep for Dunst told us, "Kirsten is fine."

Aretha Franklin trims up, looks ahead to honors

A lighter Aretha Franklin looks forward to her MusiCares honor

Published: Wednesday, February 6, 2008
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.

Aretha Franklin feels lighter than air these days.

The Queen of Soul will be honored Friday as Person of the Year for MusiCares, a Recording Academy charity supporting music education. She's also up for her 18th Grammy on Sunday, nominated for best gospel performance for a duet with Mary J. Blige. And she's, well, actually lighter.

Sitting in the lavish presidential suite of the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Tuesday, surrounded by fresh white flowers and a tray of fruits, Franklin looks decidedly slimmer in a lavender sweater and dark pants, her long dark hair hanging in loose waves below her shoulders, her nails painted bright silver.

Franklin's busy schedule of late has motivated her to push for change in her life, including weight loss and the first album to be released on her own label, Aretha's Records.

"I've got a new trainer, and she's giving me a lot of good things, really educating me about nutrition and weight loss and how to do it, and cooking stuff for you," the 65-year-old singer said. "I'm not on a diet. It's a lifestyle change. I'm going to be doing it for the long run. And eventually I'll reach my goal."

Though she didn't say what that goal was, it was clear she was happy to cut out heavier foods, fat content and salt.

"I feel lighter. I'm not as heavy, what you get with the red meat," she told The Associated Press. "You dragging yourself along when you have all that red meat. Much lighter. I feel a lot lighter, and a lot better."

Heidi Montag Thanks You for Your Comments



When Heidi Montag’s music video for the song “Higher” debuted this week, there was a strong and unified reaction across the Web. But it’s not the kind of reaction you would expect someone to appreciate. Now, Heidi is thanking people for their comments — even the nasty ones.

Although some PEOPLE.com readers called “Higher” the “worst video ever,” and said her voice sounds like a “chipmunk,” Montag recorded the following message on the gossip site PerezHilton.com:

“I appreciate people taking time to write any kind of comment. Do you know how much effort it really takes to sit down and write a comment? I’ve never written a comment in my entire life… you really have to have a lot of passion and thought to write any comment, so thank you.”

Heidi’s former fiancé Spencer Pratt, who shot the “Higher” video, had his own theory as to why it got the reaction it did.

“She’s so beautiful and she’s an unbelievable singer,” he says. “The quality of music and the music video has never been seen before.”

JENNA JAMESON + TITO ORTIZ VISIT HOWARD STERN THIS MORNING


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz stopped by and Howard asked Jenna how her divorce had gone. Jenna confessed that it was still ongoing; she's in the process of splitting everything she owns in half. Howard wondered if the divorce is what caused Jenna to lose so much weight, and Jenna admitted it was; at her lightest, she was 95 pounds, but she's now managed to put some weight back on.

Jenna told the crew that she recently replaced her D-cup implants with small C-cup implants, and though she wouldn't show them, Tito claimed they were “awesome.” Howard asked Jenna what changed her mind about being a lesbian, so Jenna cited Tito; “He's good at the same things women are.” Howard wanted Tito to show the crew his technique, but Tito resisted; “I'm a behind-closed-doors kind of guy.”


JENNA HAS A BEAUTIFUL COOKIE
Jenna confessed that she sometimes gets sore because Tito wants sex so often, leading Howard to wonder if Tito likes to “bukkake” on Jenna's face. Jenna laughed that Tito not only likes it, he likes it so much that she's requested bejeweled goggles for Valentine's Day. Howard asked if Jenna and Tito liked to have anal sex, but they recoiled at the idea. Jenna also took the opportunity to deny claims that she's had a botched vaginoplasty; “My cookie is beautiful and I love it.” Tito seemed to agree.


THE FUTURE OF TITO & JENNA
Tito revealed that he was leaving the UFC after his next fight, as he felt Dana White was no different than Don King. Howard read some of the disparaging comments Dana has made about Tito and Jenna, and they replied that Dana was a former aerobics instructor who didn't nurture Tito's career as much as he should've. Tito said his biggest revenge will be success and changed the subject, telling the crew about his early days as a street-fighter.

Howard wondered if Tito ever masturbated to other women, and after a little hesitation, he admitted that he did. Jenna laughed that she always gets weirded out when she finds Tito's porn because she’s usually friends with a few of the video's stars. Howard then asked Jenna if she ever fingered Britney Spears, but Jenna denied the story, cryptically adding that “She doesn't need any more bad press.”

Kristin Chenoweth may sing at the Oscars

Photobucket


One of my favorite Broadway divas may just get to show off her singing chops at this year’s Oscars.

Assuming the Academy Awards will take place, I’m told Kristin Chenoweth is likely to perform one of the three Enchanted numbers up for Best Original Song. Nothing is official just yet, but I’m told Chenoweth, who plays Olive Snook on ABC’s hit show Pushing Daisies, will belt out “That’s How You Know.”

Chenoweth, whom you may also remember from The West Wing, won a 1999 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her work as Sally in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. She’s best known for her role as the original Galinda/Glinda in Wicked.

While Amy Adams sang “That’s How You Know” in Enchanted, a source tells me Chenoweth was invited to perform because Adams will already be singing “Happy Working Song” on the big night. Jon McLaughlin will do the honors with “So Close,” which he sang in the flick.

Other Best Song contenders include August Rush's “Raise It Up,” by Jamia Simone Nash, and Once's “Falling Slowly,” by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.

"We have not yet announced any performers on the Academy Awards show," an Oscar rep said.

If all goes well with the writers' strike, the Oscars will be handed out Feb. 24 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.

BRITNEY SPEARS HAS BEEN RELEASED FROM UCLA



BRITNEY SPEARS HAS BEEN RELEASED FROM UCLA

Pop singer Britney Spears was released from a psychiatric ward at the UCLA Medical Center today after nearly a week of treatment.

It was unclear where she was going, but sources said she might head to one of her homes before seeking additional treatment.

Unlike the spectacle surrounding her trip to the Westwood medical facility last week, she slipped out with relatively little fanfare. A private security detail escorted her in contrast to last week when more than a dozen Los Angeles police officers escorted Spears to the hospital via motorcade.

The LAPD said they took that step after increasingly aggressive tactics by paparazzi have forced them to take costly precautions. Authorities said she was headed home before seeking additional treatments.

Her release comes after Spears' mother, in court documents, said her daughter's self-described friend and manager exerted near-total control over the singer, cutting her phone lines, taking away her cellphone chargers, disabling her vehicles and grinding up pills to place in her food. Spears' mother alleges in a restraining order against the man.

Spears' mother made the allegations in a request for a restraining order against the manager, Sam Lutfi. The restraining order, approved Friday and released by the court Tuesday, bars Lutfi from coming within 250 yards of the singer.

Spears' father and an attorney have been granted temporary conservatorship over Spears and her estate. According to sources, a grand theft report was filed by Spears' father, Jamie Spears, after the singer was taken to the UCLA hospital last week.

The grand theft report alleges that paintings, jewelry and other valuables were taken from his daughter's Coldwater Canyon home. A limited number of people had access to the home in that period, sources said.

Source #2: http://www.tmz.com/2008/02/06/britney-released/

UPDATE #2: TMZ has learned UCLA doctors determined Britney did not pose the legal danger to herself or to others such that they could continue to hold her against her will.

As a result, she was released today and we're told she's already back home.

The conservatorship is still in place. Sources connected with the case say they anticipated that UCLA would probably release her before the 14-day extension because she became cooperative and relatively stable.

We're told the goal with Brit's mom and dad was to establish the conservatorship while she was hospitalized so she would return home to a controlled environment rather than the chaos that consumed her life.

UPDATE #3: TMZ LIVE FEED AT BRITNEY'S HOME http://www.tmz.com/2008/02/06/brit-released-tmz-is-live-at-her-house/

FAMILY FEUD IN TOM'S CHURCH



SCIENTOLOGISTS are at war with a member of their own family - the outspoken niece of the church's powerful leader, David Miscavige.

Jenna Hill Miscavige, 24, the daughter of David's older brother Ron, recently came out in support of Andrew Morton's "Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography," and slammed the star for "supporting a religion that tears apart families, both in the media and monetarily." Since then, Jenna claims she's been subjected to harassment.

"The church has contacted several of my friends, telling them that I am smearing the church and I am going to be declared a suppressive person and asking my friends if they would disconnect from me and, in at least one case, insisting that they do," Jenna, who lives in San Diego, tells investigative journalist Philip Recchia.

"At least eight friends have removed themselves from my MySpace page," she said, and blames the church for it.

Jenna let loose on Scientology last month when she posted an open letter to a senior sect official, which was later posted on the Web, praising the Morton book and slamming the church. Scientology spokeswoman Karin Pouw responded to her: "I am absolutely shocked at how vehemently you insist upon not only denying the truths that have been stated about the church in that biography, but then take it a step further and tell outright lies."

Pouw did not respond to our call for further comment by press time yesterday.

But Jenna is not backing down. Her mother and father left Scientology in 2000, but she stayed in until 2005, during which time she says she was kept in a boarding school, only allowed to see her parents once a year and subjected to a bizarre daily regimen.

"If you flunked your uniform inspection, sometimes if you were late . . . you would be dumped with a five-gallon bucket of ice water," she tells Recchia, a former Post reporter.

"We were also required to write down all transgressions . . . similar to a sin in the Catholic religion. After writing them all down, we would receive a meter check on the Electropsychometer to make sure we weren't hiding anything, and you would have to keep writing until you came up clean. This is from the age of 5 until I was 12."

"GROSS"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

While the rest of the Heroes cast may claim they’re over the moon that Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia are dating, at least one person recognizes that the couple's 12-year age difference is a little strange. “I think it’s gross, to be perfectly honest,” Thomas Dekker — who played Claire’s best friend, Zach during season one of Heroes — tells Life & Style magazine. “It’s kind of like if I were dating a 12-year-old,” the 20-year-old adds.



Not content with just calling the coupling “gross,” the Sarah Connor Chronicles star also says that he can’t even comprehend how the co-stars make it work. “I’m definitely surprised they’re together. For me, it would be a struggle to be with someone in such a different age range,” he says.

Guess this kills any chance of Thomas dating Lena Headey, the 34-year-old who plays his mother on the Terminator spin-off.

Mother Allowed Britney Spears to Get Breast Implants as a Teen

The new issue of Rolling Stone offers some insight into what has lead to Britney Spears’ downward spiral.

Among the revelations:

• As a teen, the singer’s mother, Lynne, allowed her to get breast implants. But after going under the knife, “she regretted the implants, particularly because her chest was still growing,” a friend says. “When her natural breasts became larger, she had the implants removed.” But Spears kept the surgery a secret. Adds the friend, “When other girls did their boobs [they admitted it] and moved on, but Britney was brought up to lie about herself.”

Metro: Ex-Miss Nev. Assaulted Police

Katie Rees Hit Police During Arrest Attempt, Investigators Say
LAS VEGAS -- Metro police have arrested former Miss Nevada USA Katie Rees in connection with assaulting an officer. 

 
Rees was arrested Tuesday night. Investigators said officers pulled her over for a traffic violation and when they attempted to arrest her, she began to elbow and kick at the police.

Rees was stripped of her crown at the end of 2006 after pageant officials discovered some provocative photos. Rees said she did not remember taking the pictures. She claims she was treated unfairly by Miss USA officials including Donald Trump, who gave Miss USA Tara Conner a second chance after she was caught drinking in New York bars when she was still underage.

Triple H's brother-in-law dies suddenly



WWE wrestler Paul "Triple H" Levesque missed Monday Night RAW this week and will miss the show next week due to the sudden death of his brother-in-law. Gordon B. Ouellette, 41, of Nashua, NH passed away unexpectedly Monday February 4, 2008 at Southern NH Medical Center. He was the husband of Lynn (Levesque) Ouellette of Nashua, HHH's sister.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made in Gordon's memory to the American Heart Association. He apparently had a heart problem that caused his death.

I can't imagine having a young family member just drop dead. I've never experienced that. Must suck.

People joke, "Oh John, get off your soap box" but it is a soapbox and it's something that matters to me.

The actor, single after splitting from Sophia Myles last October, admits that he was overcome with joy at the prospect of getting intimate with the pop princess.

He gushes: "Getting Kylie on the show left me with stars in my eyes. I suggested the kiss, I might add. It wasn't in the script but I wasn't missing that for anything."

U2 3D Movie Info

U2 go supersize in new 3-D movie
The megaband's 'Vertigo' film hits UK's biggest screen

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

U2's film 'U2 3D' had its London premiere on the UK’s biggest screen - the IMAX - last night (February 5) in front of a bespectacled audience.

The band's latest release is the first ever live action three dimensional digital film.

'U2 3D' – which premiered at the Sundance Festival last month – is a montage from several spectacular Latin American shows from their 2005-6 Vertigo tour shot with new 3-D technology.

The effect is startling – a giant Bono occasionally looms into your face, people lurched backwards to avoid a mic-stand and you can almost touch the fingers of waving Argentinian fans.

Given the sheer size of the screen, viewers were able to feel as if they were in the thick of the slightly rally-like excitement, just with extra added popcorn, and of course, ridiculous glasses.

Bono, who attended the Sundance premiere, admitted he’d rather not have seen himself in all his 3-D cinematic glory.

He said: “It's bad enough on a small screen. Now you get to see the lard arse 40 foot tall."

The setlist is as follows:

'Vertigo'
'New Year's Day'
'Beautiful Day'
'Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own'
'Love And Peace Or Else'
'Sunday Bloody Sunday'
'Bullet The Blue Sky'
'Miss Sarajevo'
'Pride (In The Name Of Love)'
'Where The Streets Have No Name'
'One'
'The Fly'
'With Or Without You'
'Yahweh'

Eddie Izzard to Bring New Solo Show to NYC for 11-Show Stint, Feb. 12-23



Eddie Izzard — who won praise and earned a Tony Award nomination for his work in A Day in the Death of Joe Egg — will workshop his upcoming new solo show at Off-Broadway's Union Square Theatre.

The actor-comedian recently played West Coast gigs and now heads to New York City for 11 shows (to begin at 10:30 PM), Feb. 12-23, at the current home of Jump. (He has also performed recently in Montreal and London.)

Izzard's past solo shows include the double Emmy Award-winning show Dress to Kill as well as Live at the Ambassadors, Unrepeatable, Circle, Definite Article, Glorious and Sexie. The Yemen-born Brit also boasts many London stage credits — among them the title role in the Lenny Bruce bio Lenny and the world premiere of David Mamet's The Cryptogram. His films include "Ocean's Twelve," "Velvet Goldmine," "Shadow of the Vampire," "The Cat's Meow," "My Super Ex Girlfriend" and "Across the Universe."

Scheduled to be reprise his role in the new season of FX's television series "The Riches" opposite Minnie Driver, Izzard was last seen by theatre folk at the 2007 Tony Awards ceremony. He also reprised his work as the accomplice to the title group in "Ocean's Thirteen."

For tickets to the live Eddie Izzard show at Union Square Theatre, 100 East 17th Street, call (212) 505-0700 or go to Ticketmaster.com. For more information visit eddieizzard.com.

Amy Lee Strikes Back; A Woman Scorned?!

Amy Lee, in an astonishing display of class at 11:11am PST this morning, made a post on EvThreads (a haven for die-hard fans and morons alike).

As many of you may (not) know, Evanescence was nominated for a Grammy (Best Hard Rock Performance) for their third single off The Open Door, "Sweet Sacrifice."



Amy Lee ("SnowWhite") typed:

Subject: making sweet sacrifice
Body: HI everybody. There have been some false claims in a few articles I've seen recently, and I just want to set things straight.

Making a record takes a lot of hard work, and a lot of heart. When Terry and I found out that Sweet Sacrifice was nominated for "best hard rock performance," we were giddy with excitement to see something we'd created fly so high. You all know that Terry suffered a stroke right after tracking the guitars for The Open Door, and how much strength he's had to have to overcome the effects its had on his performance. This is part of the reason the nomination was so touching to us. This award is for those who performed on the track, and I want to give credit where credit is due. Terry composed and performed ALL of the guitars on this song, Will played bass, Rocky played drums, and I sang vocals. Wind-up records made an error when they listed the performers on the album back in 2006, and now that error is being taken advantage of. You are the fans, you deserve to know who you're listening to, and Terry deserves full recognition for his performance. ...


The aforementioned error that is being "taken advantage of" is the fact that John LeCompt, guitarist for Evanescence for many-a-year, was invited to the Grammys for his work on the album, regardless of the fact that his current band member status reads "terminated".



Word on the street says that John LeCompt will be seated next to Amy Lee at the awards ceremony.
Many hope he arrives clad in an "I'm With Stupid ---->" T-shirt.

brad renfro's beloved grandmother dies



Joanne Barron Renfro, the grandmother of Knoxville-born actor Brad Renfro, died Friday. She was 76.

Mrs. Renfro raised her grandson from the time he was 5 years old at her home in North Knoxville's Lincoln Park community. Her grandson drew national attention at the age of 10 in 1993, when he was cast to star in the film adaptation of John Grisham's "The Client."

Her death came a little more than two weeks after her grandson's in Los Angeles.

Survivors include her sons, Mike Renfro of Powell and Mark Renfro of Louisville; grandson, Jack Renfro of Powell; and nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends 6-8 p.m. Monday at Stevens Mortuary, with services to follow. Burial will be Tuesday in Glencoe Cemetery in Big Stone Gap, Va.

Epic Recording Artist Sean Kingston Cuts New Cover Version of 'I'm Eighteen' for Declare Yourself

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Having celebrated his 18th birthday on Sunday, February 3, one of the country's most popular young music artists, Sean Kingston, has created a new version of Alice Cooper's song, "I'm Eighteen." Sean recorded the song in Los Angeles for the national nonpartisan, nonprofit youth voting initiative, Declare Yourself, to encourage America's 18-year-olds to register and vote in the 2008 presidential primaries and general election.

"Turning 18 is a big deal," said Kingston, "not just for me but for every young person in this country. It means all of a sudden you can do a lot of things, and one of those things is voting. I hope if someone checks out this song, it will make them want to hear more, learn more or do more -- whether they're 18 or 80."

Kevin Federline: An American Hero



It turns out there is a limit to what you can show on TV these days.

In light of the all too real drama encompassing ex-wife Britney Spears, Kevin Federline has scrapped plans for a reality show documenting his life as a single dad.

"His plans are on hold because of the Britney situation," a source close to Federline exclusively told E! News. "He had planned to do it, but not now."

A rep for the Playing with Fire purveyor had no comment on the situation, but the source from K-Fed's camp said he had been in talks with the show's would-be producers for months.

Federline had also recently looked into starting a business that would perhaps be incorporated into the show, but now "everything is on hold," the source said.

Last month, people close to the erstwhile aspiring rapper said Federline has been keeping busy cutting tracks and working with other artists in his home studio, an arrangement that allows him more time with his and Spears' two boys.

While he doesn't feel that he'll be taken seriously as an MC anytime soon, he has been focusing his energy on producing.

And on fatherhood, of course.

The 29-year-old former backup dancer has had primary physical and legal custody of toddlers Sean Preston and Jayden James since October.

Spears was stripped of her visitation privileges early last month, following an unexpected standoff with police at her Beverly Hills home after she refused to turn Jayden over to Federline's bodyguard when their visit had ended.

At the time, she spent just over 24 hours at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center undergoing a mental and physical checkup to further probe her increasingly erratic behavior.

The beleaguered pop princess was hospitalized for a second time early Thursday morning, this time on a 72-hour hold that was extended to 14 days after doctors determined her condition was serious enough to merit round-the-clock observation.

Spears' father, Jamie, has been granted temporary conservatorship of her estate and physical welfare.

Osama trying to sell private pictures of Britney and her kids to the press



In recent days, Sam Lutfi, the close companion of Britney Spears who is now legally forbidden from making contact with her, has accused Brit's parents Jamie and Lynne Spears of only "wanting their daughter's money."

And yet, ironically, someone claiming to be Sam's representative recently contacted OK! wanting to make a deal for his story — despite him having signed a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement with Britney. An insider tells OK! exlusively that Sam has tried numerous times to sell photos of Britney and her boys as well.

"Talk about the pot calling the kettle black," a source close to the Spears family tells OK!. "He (Sam) is a bad guy in all of this and he hopefully will never have contact with Britney again."

Oprah Winfrey to help Dr. Phil McGraw mark 1,000 episodes

Oprah Winfrey has done wonders for Barack Obama. Maybe she can help Dr. Phil McGraw after all his bad press for blabbing about meeting Britney Spears.

Winfrey will make her first guest shot on "Dr. Phil" on Monday's show, which will be No. 1,000 for him.

She will not be receiving counseling from Dr. Phil. She will be there to help ensure there are another thousand episodes. Winfrey and McGraw will talk about their friendship and her discovery of him. That's been a very lucrative discovery, we should add.

Dr. Phil will let his 1,000-episode celebration spill into Tuesday's show. Other guests will be Jay Leno, Jordin Sparks and Gayle King.

"Dr. Phil" airs at 7 weeknights on WKMG-Channel 6.

Writer's Strike: Draft of Proposed Deal Expected Soon

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The striking Writers Guild of America is anticipating that lawyers could complete a draft copy of a proposed deal with Hollywood studios by Friday.

The bargaining committee and boards of the East and West Coast guild chapters plan to review the proposal before sharing details Saturday at membership meetings in New York and Los Angeles, said a person close to the situation who was not authorized to comment publicly and requested anonymity.

In an e-mail sent earlier this week to guild members, negotiations committee chief John Bowman said the guild wouldn't make a formal decision on the proposed deal until after the informational membership meetings.

If writers like what they hear Saturday, the closed-door meetings could be a major step toward a resolution of the 3-month-old strike.

The walkout, which began Nov. 5, centers on the issue of compensation for content offered over the Internet.

The outcome of the membership meetings could determine if TV networks will be able to salvage the remainder of the 2007-08 season and if the Feb. 24 Academy Awards ceremony can proceed without pickets.

Fox's Unhitched with Rashida Jones, Craig Bierko Comes Next Month







 



For all of you who have been looking for your post-The Office Rashida Jones series, this is it, and it's from the Farrelly brothers, who, although they really struck out with their most recent Ben Stiller film The Heartbreak Kid, seem to have at least enough show to make a compelling trailer, and these days in television, that's a lot.

From the Fox press release:

Jack "Gator" Gately (Craig Bierko) is a charismatic, optimistic guy who never expected to be single again. But now that he is, he’s determined to make the best of it until he finds “the one.”

Joining Gator in bachelorhood redux are his best friends: thrice-divorced Tommy (Johnny Sneed), the founder and brewmaster of an upstart microbrewery, who has a voracious appetite for food, beer and women; and Dr. Freddy Sahgal (Shaun Majumder), a successful surgeon who can execute a triple bypass in his sleep, but is all thumbs when it comes to the opposite sex.

Rounding out the group is Kate (Rashida Jones), a smart, successful attorney who handled all three of the boys’ divorces. Having just turned 30, Kate finds herself dumped after a seven-year engagement and reluctantly joins the guys in negotiating the treacherous waters of dating. With Kate owning the brownstone next to Gator’s, this pair, over time, may find that “the one” is just a brick wall away.

More, including two clips, after the jump.

This series, btw, was previously known as The Rules for Starting Over, so you might want to update that list of TV show titles you carry around next to that 12-year-old condom in your wallet.


As you probably know by now, I'll give anything that promises to make me laugh a shot. Which is probably why I never understand when this "sitcoms are dead" period washes over us every few years.

This one has a great creator pedigree and solid performers. I expect that you'll all at least give it a try. I wanna see big sampling numbers for this, so I'll be reminding you about it until it airs in March. The premiere date is Sunday, March 2, probably after a new Family Guy ep they're holding just for the occasion (at least that's what I would be doing if I were them).

Holy S**t -- Lutfi Sleeping with the Enemy!!!

TMZ has learned Sam Lutfi, the man who is legally required to stay away from Brit, is counterattacking, with the help of ... drum roll please ... Michael Sands, the former media consultant for K-Daddy's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Sands, who knows a thing or two about crisis management, has been brought on board by Lutfi to, as Lutfi put it to us, "set the record straight" about who he is.

Sands cryptically told TMZ, "I'm honored to work with a patriot like Sam Lutfi." BTW, while Sands worked for Kaplan, his mission was partly to dig up dirt on Brit's former manager.

For his part, Lutfi told TMZ, "Michael did his research and found the truth."

HSM 3, On Tour, and Could Zac Affect Your Voting?


Okay, folks, big news today. We know what Troy Bolton might wear to the "High School Musical 3" prom.

Imagine our glee when we showed up at "Project Runway" contestant Elisa Jimenez's Sunday morning show at Touch to find Caroline Marx, the costume designer of, gasp, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year."

Do Celebrities Influence Your Voting Choices?


The word is out about which Presidential hopefuls the rich and famous are supporting.

We all know about Oprah Winfrey's highly-publicized support of Barack Obama. Also enthusiastic about his candidacy are George Clooney, Scarlett Johansonn, Steven Spielberg, Susan Sarandon, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and a host of other ultra-liberal Democrats who previously might have championed Hillary Clinton's run for office. Clinton does, however, still have strong support among some stars, such as the ever-loyal Barbra Streisand and Kimora Lee Simmons among them.

Disney's High School Musical Hits the National Theatre


The first thing you should know about High School Musical On Tour!: It is not the movie.

I didn’t expect it to be, of course. But after watching Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens’s heart-warming karaoke scene maybe a dozen times (yes, I’ve seen the movie more than some 12-year-olds), it was a little disconcerting that the stage version opens with lead characters Troy (John Jeffrey Martin) and Gabriella (Arielle Jacobs) already at East High. And to see that Troy’s sidekick Chad (Shakiem Evans) didn’t have big, curly hair and was more flat-out attractive than baby-face cute.

Ma! Billy Ray! Break out the Cheetos and the Two-Buck Chuck, ya heah... Cousin-Aunt Britney's back!

Britney's days in the psych ward didn't exorcise her British persona -- blimey! While she was on her way to the Beverly Hills Hotel, where she met up with Adnan, a pap offered her Ghalib's new phone number. Spears was caught saying Adnan can take his phone number and "shove it up his ass!"

Jamie Lynn partaying :)


While the cat's away....

Lynne Spears is currently in Los Angeles dealing with the Brit Brit debacle leaving Jamie Lynn by herself in Kentwood, LA. What does a knocked up teen do while her parents are away? She parties! Jamie Lynn threw a Super Bowl party at her mother's mansion, Serenity, and invited Casey Aldridge and a bunch of her friends reports Star Magazine.

A source said, “They were all laughing. They looked really happy and excited to be at the house, like they hadn't seen Jamie Lynn in a while."

Earlier in the day Casey and Jamie Lynn drove to a Wal-Mart Supercenter 35-miles from Kentwood. One source said they might have been buying booze, because the store near her house doesn't sell that shit on Sundays. Ugh, I hate dry Sundays!

Don't jump too conclusions! I'm sure Jamie Lynn was keeping it classy and safe by only drinking Sunny-D spritzers all day and snacking on nachos made with Doritos. Speaking of Doritos nachos. When I went to London a couple of months ago, someone told me they make their nachos with fucking cheese Doritos instead of regular tortilla chips. I didn't believe them, but they do! It's strangely delicious, but then you realize what you're eating and that's when your butt starts rumbling.

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

So every year, CCTV holds its New Year's Gala. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, the New Year's Gala is a technicolor nightmare that is a part of the tradition in which Chinese people usher in the new year. This year, actress Zhang Ziyi/Ziyi Zhang (whatever) decided to grace the stage and perform a little sing song...



She had glitter in her hair, on her face, and long fishnet-like evening gloves. Sorry I don't have closeups of her face, but I swear, she was a hot, glittered-up mess. Hopefully someone will upload her segment on YouTube. Anyhow, memo to ZZ: Glinda called...she wants her gown back.

EXCLUSIVE: Singer Teyana Taylor is a Lesbian


Interscope recording artist Teyana Taylor is a lesbian.

Teyana was shooting her new music video for her debut single "Google Me, Baby" yesterday in NYC where she was caught making out with another female afterwards.

The source on the set continues by saying, "She is as gay as Sean "Diddy" Combs. She even hit on me multiple times and wanted me to spend the night with her and I am a straight female not looking to kick it with the same sex!"

I so wish Diddy would come out of the closet and those like Teyana, Missy Elliot, Eve and many others would follow.

Tom Jones insures his chest hair for $7,000,000

The 'She's a Lady' crooner insured his pectoral growth for almost $7 million, The Mirror reports.

"Even at the grand old age of 67, the ladies love his hip-thrusting moves and catching a sneaky peak of his famously rugged chest hair," a source says.

"Like a vintage wine, Tom just gets better with age," the same source adds.

Jones is not the first celebrity, nor the last, to protect his features in this manner. Others include supermodel Heidi Klum, who insured her legs for $2 million, and Bruce Springsteen, who insured his voice for $1 million.

OK! Magazine fails at life



Contrary to a recent tabloid report, Eric Dane does not have skin cancer. OK!

Angelina got pregnant to save her failing relationship with Brad



Angelina Jolie is only pregnant, because she's trying to save her relationship with Brad Pitt so claims The National Enquirer (via MSNBC). Brad and Angie have apparently been fighting about whether or not their next baby should be biological or they should adopt. Brad wanted Angie to get knocked up again.

This source claims Angelina agreed to get pregnant hoping it would eliminate the tension between them. She couldn't get pregnant and worried Brad would leave her, so she sought the help of a in vitro specialist. Now she's allegedly pregnant with twins!

The source said, "After trying for months to conceive naturally, she also began to fear that she’d never get pregnant again. She really believes that the new babies will finally put to rest the problems in their relationship.”

Uh...huh...There's no way Angie's trying to keep a man. She's the one that's calling the shots. I doubt she's afraid Brad will leave her ass. It's the other way around. She probably made him have a baby or she was going to leave him. I wouldn't be shocked if he was the one carrying twins. Angie's hypnotic vagina is that powerful. She makes men conquer the impossible.

Playing a cancer victim made Butler quit smoking.



Scottish actor GERARD BUTLER quit smoking after playing a cancer victim in his new movie P.S. I LOVE YOU. The 300 star took the role as a huge hint he had to take better care of himself. He says, "I was smoking a huge amount and having real bad premonitions (of death), and then I get this role where the guy dies of cancer. "The film made me contemplate death and made me realise I was playing Russian roulette with my health. I've since stopped smoking. "And I think this is it... it's been seven or eight months since I smoked."

Idk, when celebs smoke I think it makes them look even sexier and I don't smoke myself. At least he's still smokin hot (lawlz shit joke).

Paris Hilton blogs again



Paris Hilton (or her assistant) just blogged about The Paris Hilton Shoe Collection launching everywhere this Friday. Check her MySpace post:

“Hi Everyone! I wanted to let you all know about something I am so excited about–my new Footwear Collection launching at Macy’s South Coast Plaza on February 8th!!

I have always loved shoes and after working on my recently launched sportswear and fragrance lines, this seemed like a natural next step. The Paris Hilton Footwear Collection is perfect for the fashion-forward young woman who wants to look and feel great from head-to-toe without spending a fortune.

I love these shoes; they come in a range of styles that are totally chic and trendy – from sexy stilettos and platforms to must-have flats, wedges and boots. I personally chose the styling, design, materials and colors for the line and also wanted to make sure it was super comfortable! Each shoe has a heart shaped comfort pad sewn into the inner sole, so you can dance all night long! I also made the soles of the shoes pink so no matter how you look at them, they are super cute!

We are launching The Paris Hilton Footwear Collection at Macy’s at South Coast Plaza (in Orange County, CA) on February 8th from 3-6pm! Plus, from January 29th to February 8th, girls can not only get a sneak peak of the line at Macy’s South Coast Plaza, but the first 200 customers to make a purchase from the Paris Hilton Footwear Collection will be guaranteed a space in line where we can meet at the February 8th launch event.

Don’t worry, if you aren’t in Orange County, you can also get the shoes at Kitson, Zappos.com, Endless.com, Bakers, Lord & Taylor and select specialty boutiques across the country.

Hope you like them as much as I do!

Xoxo,

Paris“

Britney's parents are frustrated...to say the least.


The following statement was released to CNN's Anderson Cooper by Jamie and Lynne Spears, Britney's parents:

"As parents of an adult child in the throws of a mental health crisis, we were extremely disappointed this morning to learn that over the recommendation of her treating psychiatrist, our daughter Britney was released from the hospital that could best care for her and keep her safe. We are deeply concerned about our daughter's safety and vulnerability and we believe her life is presently at risk. There are conservatorship orders in place created to protect our daughter that are being blatantly disregarded. We ask only that the court's orders be enforced so that a tragedy may be averted."
Source

Update: Britney's family likely to be back in court tomorrow

Britney Spears is a free woman and her parents are clearly frustrated, especially after today's circus in the streets of Bev Hills.Based on what we know, it's a good bet Jamie Spears will be back in court -- we're guessin' tomorrow -- asking the Commish to put some teeth in the conservatorship order. That order gives the conservator power to restrict the visitors Brit receives. No doubt Ma and Pa were frustrated that Brit let a paparazzo ride with her in her car today. And we're hearing they were none too happy about the people she saw at the Bev Hills Hotel.

It wouldn't be at all unusual for the conservator to ask for an order requiring the cops to enforce the instructions Jamie lays down. In other words, he could call the Bev Hills Police and ask them to remove the pap from the car.

Likewise, the conservatorship gives Jamie the right to approve contracts. It's a good bet he would not have approved Britney buying stuff or getting a room at the hotel. Think about the cops going to the hotel and telling the manager they can't let Brit buy stuff or get rooms without Jamie's consent and if they defied Jamie they could be held in contempt.

We'll be in court tomorrow ... just in case, so stay tuned.

selena gomez and demi lovato



Disney sweetheart Selena Gomez told Popstar! magazine that her biggest idols are her mom, Rachel McAdams and Rachel Bilson. Selena said:

"I love when people say I look like Rachel Bilson, because I think she's great!"

So, what is a day in the life of this Wizards of Waverly Place star like? Well, it isn't just spells and chillin' with David Henrie. Sel gives a breakdown of her crazy busy schedule:

"I wake up at 5 AM, then I drive to the set, get hair and makeup, then go to wardrobe. After I'm ready, I run lines for the next scene, then I have school. Then I'm on set until 5:30 PM. Then I hang out with the cast, call my family back home, and just sleep! And all through the day, I eat a lot!"

I thought waking up at 7 AM everyday was early! Heads up, Selena's music video 'Cruella De Vil' will be premiering on Sunday, February 10th right after Phineas & Ferb.


IMO - she looks a lot more like rachel when she talks/on camera. watch the youtube videos below and you'll see what i mean..

OK! Magazine Provides Updates About Britney Spears (Summary of Today's Events)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Around 4:40 p.m. PT, a little over an hour after Britney Spears and her caravan of paparazzi pulled into the Beverly Hills Hotel, the troubled singer's boyfriend, photographer Adnan Ghalib, was spotted arriving at the posh palace in his Mercedes convertible and being rushed up to Britney's room by security guards.

Adnan's arrival puts to rest, for the moment at least, rumors that Brit was planning on meeting her "friend" Sam Lutfi at the hotel. Last Friday, a restraining order was issued against Sam, who claims to control all aspects of Britney's life, forbidding him from having any contact with the singer.

UPDATE: At 4:47 p.m. PT, six LAPD officers arrived at the hotel. According to sources, the police are awaiting the arrival of Britney's parents with the intention of taking the pop star back to the hospital.

UPDATE: At 5:05 p.m. PT, an LAPD officer confirmed to OK! that Britney was secreted out of the Beverly Hills Hotel in Adnan's car. While there is much speculation that she will be returning to the hospital tonight, the police would neither confirm nor deny this rumor. Minutes later, the pair were spotted driving along Santa Monica Blvd.


UPDATE: Around 5:20, Britney and Adnan arrived at a office building on Santa Monica Blvd. Adam Streisand, the lawyer who Brit tried to hire over the weekend, has an office in that building and it's believed that's where the pair are now.

UPDATE: Sources tell OK! that sometime around 7:00pm PT, Britney managed to sneak out of Streisand's office building and return to the Beverly Hills Hotel! According to the source, a paparazzo from Adnan's former agency FinalPixx snuck them out of the building by hiding Adnan and Brit under a black blanket in the back of his car.

Back at the Beverly Hills Hotel, several of the police who were there earlier remain on the grounds as do a number of bodyguards who are keeping watch in the hotel's parking garage.

UPDATE
: Shortly before 9:00pm PT, Brit's father Jamie Spears arrived at the Beverly Hills Hotel. According to eyewitnesses, Jamie has talked to the hotel's concierge and is currently waiting in the lobby. "He looks very tired," one witness tells OK!. "It looks like he just wants someone to help him out."

A few minutes later, Jamie was approached by the concierge and a pair of men who may have been plainclothes police officers or hotel security officials, who led him to a private conference room, where Brit's father showed them what appear to be legal documents. Sources are telling OK! that Jamie is likely asking for the hotel's cooperation in getting his daughter back to her home.

UPDATE: Around 9:20pm PT, more police arrived at the Beverly Hills Hotel and begin gathering in the lobby, outside in the valet parking area and upstairs on the second floor of the hotel, where sources tell OK! Britney and Adnan are currently holed up.

UPDATE:
At 9:30pm PT, Jamie Spears entered Britney's room with what is believed to be legal documents in his hand. Meanwhile, down in the hotel's private parking garage, a number of hotel guards are keeping watch on Brit's Mercedes.

UPDATE: Midnight: Sources confirm to OK! that Britney and Adnan have been taken home by the same X17 photographer who drove Brit to the hotel earlier in the day. Brit's car remains in the hotel's garage while Adnan's is driven by an associate to the offices of his former photo agency.

Pregnant Jennifer Lopez @ NY Fashion Week

A very, very pregnant Jennifer Lopez makes an appearance at the Marchesa Fall/Winter 2008 Fashion Show at Bryant Park during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City on Wednesday. Husband Marc Anthony was not too far behind…

Yesterday, J.Lo’s father confirmed that she’s having twins.

“Yes, twins,” David Lopez said. “The thing is in my family, my sister also had twins, so it’s a hereditary thing. I’m very proud. Jennifer has yearned to be a mother for many years.”

Mr. Lopez even bought the babies gifts! He said, “In Puerto Rico it’s custom to buy an azabache [black stone] bracelet for babies to protect them from the evil eye, it’s part of our culture.”



she doesnt look that big to me, considering shes carrying twins, and wow at the shoes haha
