Britney Spears Takes Over

OMG, y'all. It's Brit Brit.

I told Misty I'd take over for the day.

She's busy visiting blogs and replying to emails.

I don't know nothing about SITS, but she really seems to love it.

I wonder what it stands for.

S - I - T - S

Singing in the shower?

Standing in the street?

Sex in Timberlake's suite?

Hehehe. I done all those things.


I'm sitting on the floor in my garage listening to Justin Bieber.

He's so cute, y'all.

When's he gonna be 18?

That ain't bad is it?

Don't think bad of me.


I'm just a girl with a crush on you!

That's my song, yanno.

I wrote it when I was 15.



Do ya know who I don't like?

Like a lot?

Bella Swan!

I want a sparkly vampire boyfriend.

What does she got that I don't?

I'm hot.

I can sing lip sync.

I can dance.

I know people.

I wear flannel.

Uh oh!

My dad's calling me.

I'm prolly in trouble again.

I let my nips show in Target and didn't brush my hair.

Be good to Misty.

She's the best.

Peace out, y'all.

The Talk of Tinseltown
Get Well, Bret

Michael Douglas' son Cameron was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to drug charges. In addition to prison, Cameron was ordered to pay $25,000 and serve 450 hours of community service. He will also spend an additional five years under supervision when he's released.

A Christian group has come to the aid of Stephen Baldwin. A website has been set up so fans can donate money which will be deposited directly into his bank account. Stephen filed for bankruptcy last year after he racked up more than $2.3 million worth of debt. A statement posted on the site reads, "Stephen Baldwin of the famous Baldwin Brothers is no stranger to the Hollywood life of glitz, glamour and the public eye. However, because of his religious convictions it has caused him the loss of many jobs and most recently, a highly publicized bankruptcy." There are a lot of Christians in Hollywood who seem to have no problem making money. It must be nice to have people you don't know putting money into your bank account. Where can I sign up?

Jennifer Carpenter has announced that husband and costar Michael C. Hall has fully recovered from cancer and is already back to work. This is great news. I love me some Michael C. Hall and Dexter.

Denise Richards and Kendra Wilkinson are attempting to set their single parents up on a date. According to a source, Denise heard that Kendra was planning an episode of her show where she helps her mother find a new man. Since Denise's dad lost his wife to cancer in 2007, Denise thought he might be a perfect candidate. This would be sweet if it were actually sincere.

Tori Spelling is reportedly developing a daytime talk show for ABC. It would be similar to "Regis and Kelly", but aimed at a younger audience. If marketed properly, this could actually work. Would you watch?

Lindsay Lohan has missed two depositions regarding the lawsuit she's facing from three men she took on a joyride in a hijacked SUV back in 2007. Lindsay went shopping during the first deposition. She had a hard time getting a ride the second time since her license is suspended. What about that mom of hers? Why couldn't she drive her to court? Lindsay has one last chance to appear on May 4. I hope she doesn't show up and gets sent to the clink for 30 days.

There was initially speculation over whether or not Kate Hudson purchased tiny implants. Now, there's speculation over whether or not she's pregnant. I don't think she cares what people think since she's making zero effort to cover up either.

Bret Michaels remains in critical condition after suffering a brain hemorrhage late Thursday evening. This comes one week after having an emergency appendectomy. Doctors believe both are complications from his type 1 diabetes. The doctors are currently trying to locate the source of the bleeding. Bret is awake and remains positive.

I hope Bret makes a full recovery. He's one of my faves.

My Favorite Hates

Fabulous! (pasta not included) posted some of her favorite things to hate today. I'm stealing this idea since it's obviously awesome. Here are a few things I love to hate.

1. Heart Necklaces & Red Roses on Valentine's Day

Could you be any less creative?

2. Hummers

They aren't cool anymore now that everyone and their mom can afford one.

3. Unpolished Toenails

If your toenails are going to show, polish them.

4. Putting Family Member's Names On Your Car

Haven't these people watched Dexter? The Trinity Killer will get you.

5. Snot Nosed Kids

If you're going to break all the rules and bring your sick kid out, at least have the decency to wipe his nose.

I don't want you lovely people to think I'm hating on everything today, so I'll end this feature with my current favorite hottie. I had another Christian Bale dream, so he's been on my mind.

Ain't he pretty?

The Talk of Tinseltown
Special Tuesday Edition

This week's celebrity gossip comes to you from the office. The internet is still on the fritz at home. The Hero's working on it today. We may need a new router. I don't really care what we need as long as it's fixed. I almost postponed this until next week, but couldn't bring myself to do it. The celebs have been busy doing stupid stuff to entertain you. Let's go!

Hugh Hefner has decided to be a one woman man with Playmate Crystal Harris. After years of multiple girlfriends, Hef has finally found true love. If Hugh Hefner can settle down, Jesse James and Tiger Woods can too.

Disney is set to develop a prequel to The Wizard of Oz. They reportedly want Johnny Depp or Robert Downey Jr. to play The Wizard. I can tolerate this since it's not a remake of the original.

Kate Hudson may have gotten the tiniest breast implants ever. An insider told US Weekly that Kate finally did something about her biggest insecurity. If it makes her feel better about herself, that's all that matters. Does it look like she got new boobs to you?

Lady Gaga is celibate because she's doesn't have time to get to know someone.

"It's ok not to have sex. It's ok to get to know people. You don't have to have sex to feel good about yourself, and if you're not ready, don't do it. It's cooler to be strong and independent." -- The Ga

What can I say about Charlie Sheen that hasn't already been said? He's been in and out of rehab. He's been in and out of hookers. Now, he's reportedly shaved his head. He'll be lucky if it all grows back.

Mel Gibson has split from his baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva. She said the split was sudden, but with mutual consent. They will raise their daughter together.

Larry King and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick, may or may not be divorcing. It changes by the hour. He reportedly cheated with her sister. She reportedly cheated with their son's baseball coach. Guess who doesn't have a prenup?

Paris Hilton dumped Doug Reinhardt again. She suspected him of using her star power to land him jobs. Well, duh!

Bret Michaels had an emergency appendectomy. According to him, he almost died.

Conan O'Brien has landed a new tv gig. He will host a one-hour talk show before Lopez Tonight on TBS in November. George Lopez approved his show being pushed back an hour to make room for Conan.

Britney Spears Pic(s) of the Week

There are many reasons why I love Britney Spears. The number one reason has to be her attitude. She doesn't care what you think. She doesn't always fix her hair, put on makeup or wear a bra. She hits up public restrooms when she needs to pee. She wears the same shoes over and over again when she probably has hundreds of pairs. She may be a pop star with millions of dollars, but ultimately she's a woman with imperfections.

During the latest Candies ad campaign, Britney insisted her photos remain unaltered. She agreed for retouched versions to appear alongside the originals highlighting the pressure on women to look perfect.

Remember this the next time you see your favorite celebrity on the cover of a magazine. Pimples, cellulite, bad hair, big hips, sagging boobs and flabby stomachs can happen to anyone. If we were all model thin and perfect, life as we know it would be pretty boring. I also hope the critics remember this the next time they want to trash Britney. You go, girl!

Funny of the Day

This is one of the funniest commercials of all time.

iLove Tuesday Tunes
Piano Song

Meiko's songs have been featured in several primetime shows including Grey's Anatomy, 90210 and One Tree Hill. I love all the songs on her self-titled album, but Piano Song is my favorite. If it weren't for Perez Hilton, I would never have heard of her. I hope you like her as much as I do.

Every little thing I do, I do for you
With every little thing, I think a thought of you
And I try so hard not to notice
I try so hard not to care
I try so hard not to know that you're not here
But I'm counting down the hours
And I'm counting up the days
I try so hard not to show this side of me

The Talk of Tinseltown
Desperate Housewives
+ Designing Women

Private detectives have found conclusive proof that Olivia Newton John's former boyfriend, Patrick McDermott, is alive. McDermott was originally presumed dead after disappearing off a fishing boat in 2005. However, many believed he faked his own death because he was largely in debt.

Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey have ended their 5-year relationship. I really hate it because I liked them together.

Michael Lohan proposed to his girlfriend, Kate Major. Kate dated Jon Gosselin for a minute. Is this girl desperate for fame, mentally unstable or both?

The secret script for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was found in a bar in Hertfordshire, England after the crew went out for some celebratory drinks. It was quite the surprise for the honest man who found the script. It has since been returned to Warner Bros. studios. Executives are investigating how the script could have been left behind. Why would anyone need to carry the script to the bar in the first place?

Gloria Allred and Tiger Woods' kindergarten teacher, Maureen Decker, held a press conference asking for an apology from the golf pro. Woods stated in Charles Barkley's 2005 book that Ms. Decker "didn't do much of anything" when a group of 6th graders tied him to a tree, spray-painted the word n***er on him and threw rocks at him on his first day of kindergarten. Ms. Decker says no such incident ever occurred. If this didn't happen, why didn't she come out five years ago when the book was released? I smell an attention whore.

Nicollette Sheridan is suing Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry for $20 million. In the lawsuit, Sheridan claims Cherry physically assaulted her after she questioned him about something in the script. According to the lawsuit, "Cherry took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head." Sheridan says she immediately reported the incident to ABC, but they failed to take action. She also states she was killed off the show unfairly. If this is true, Mr. Cherry needs to have a few housewives get desperate on his ass.

Designing Women star Dixie Carter died on Saturday at the age of 70. Her publicist declined to disclose the cause of death. She leaves behind her actor husband, Hal Holbrook, and two daughters.
