Britney Confronts Mom


Apparently Britney is thinking back on her rehab stay and is getting bitter. She allegedly doesn't think she has a problem and is ticked at her mom. Uh, show Britney the photos of her getting out of a car without underwear. Your mom was probably trying to help you restore your dignity. Britney's such an idiot.

Lynne Spears "has cried her heart out over the trouble between her and Britney," says the Spears family pal. "She is brokenhearted. She wants her baby to be okay and to bring her grandkids home to Kentwood and raise them in a normal environment."

On Thursday photos showed the pop star handing papers to her mother outside a trailer in Valencia, Calif., then walking away as her mom sat on the trailer steps, shocked.

Although one report identified the papers as a restraining order, TMZ.com reports that Spears actually handed her mother a letter from an out-of-state lawyer.

According to TMZ, the letter asks that Lynne stay away from Spears's sons Sean Preston, 1, and Jayden James, 9 months, if she is taking any medications that might cause her to be impaired.

Later, when asked by photo agency X17 what the papers were, Lynne joked, "It's a love letter." She ultimately clarified: "She did not serve me."

As for what may be behind the rift between mother and daughter, the family friend tells PEOPLE: "I think Britney is angry that her family got involved in getting her into rehab."

who updated the web site?

Mitt Romney Drove With His Dog on the Roof of His Car!

For Twelve Hours!!! At highway speeds!
Even if you don't like dogs or animals, you must know not to put a pet carrier ON THE ROOF OF YOUR CAR!

How can someone so stupid be president? oh...right...

The incident: dog excrement found on the roof and windows of the Romney station wagon. How it got there: Romney strapped a dog carrier — with the family dog Seamus, an Irish Setter, in it — to the roof of the family station wagon for a twelve hour drive from Boston to Ontario, which the family apparently completed, despite Seamus’s rather visceral protest.


Didn't they put Aunt Edna ontop of the car in the first Vacation movie?

Mitt Romney is either a cruel person or a complete moron.

My New Fave Person: Elizabeth Edwards

Tranny Coulter is such a slimeball. Elizabeth Edwards, wife of John Edwards, called in to Hardball to ask Tranny to quit with the bashing.

An example of what Elizabeth is referring to. From Tranny Coulter's column:

If you want points for not using your son’s death politically, don’t you have to take down all those “Ask me about my son’s death in a horrific car accident” bumper stickers?

Someone in the Hardball crowd shouts something, and Tranny repeats what the person says "why isn't John Edwards calling in?" And Elizabeth Edwards says "I am the mother of the boy that died". All expression is gone in Tranny's face. Ha! Bee-yatch. You go Elizabeth!

Watch it: here

Note to Tranny- you can wear short skirts, and low cut dresses all you want (I think I wore the one she's wearing in the video clip to a concert in 1989). You can't cover up that hideous voice or your adams apple. Maybe that is why you're so bitter.

US Weekly Joins the Paris Hilton Boycott

"When it came down to it, the staff and I felt what I believe a lot of people in America are feeling. Which is just enormous Paris fatigue," US Weekly Editor Janice Min told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

As a result, Hilton not only won't be on the cover, there won't even be a mention of her in the magazine.

"I don't think," Min joked, "we even mention the city of Paris."

That was no easy task, she said, adding US Weekly editors had to comb carefully through every beauty story and every fashion item to make sure there wasn't an offhand mention of the hotel heiress somewhere.

Starsky is Single!


Paul Michael "Starsky" Glaser is getting divorced. Starsky and Hutch is one of my all time fave shows. PMG- call me!

Actor Paul Michael Glaser, who shot to fame as Starsky on the hit '70s show "Starsky and Hutch," is pulling the plug on his marriage to writer/producer Tracy Barone.

In divorce papers, filed yesterday in Los Angeles County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, Glaser blamed "irreconcilable differences" for the split. The couple was married in 1996 and have a 9-year-old daughter.

Paul's first wife, renowned AIDS activist Elizabeth Glaser, passed away in 1994 after a 13-year battle with the disease. She co-founded the Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Bon Jovi Tops the Charts for the First Time Since 1988


Seriously!

Bon Jovi topped the U.S. album charts for the first time since 1988 on Wednesday, while rock duo the White Stripes scored a personal best with a No. 2 debut for their latest release.

Bon Jovi's "Lost Highway" sold 292,000 copies in the week ended June 24, the rock troupe's biggest one-week sum since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales data in 1991. The Island/Mercury Nashville set is Bon Jovi's third No. 1 album, joining 1988's "New Jersey" and 1987's "Slippery When Wet."

Sales were fueled in part by the group's new country fanbase, wrangled in with the Grammy-winning 2006 hit "Who Says You Can't Go Home" featuring Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles.

New Info in Wrestler's Death

World Wrestling Entertainment star Chris Benoit asphyxiated his wife Nancy and their 7-year-old son Daniel before hanging himself, Fayette County Sheriff's Department's Lt. Tommy Pope said at a press conference outside the Benoit home on Tuesday.

Nancy, whose feet were bound, was likely killed Friday night in an office in the home where she was discovered, said Scott Ballard, Fayette's District Attorney. Her death was followed by the boy's murder on Saturday in the child's upstairs bedroom. Daniel Benoit was found in his bed, said police. A bible was near both bodies.

"Then, maybe sometime later," on Saturday or Sunday, said Pope, "Chris Benoit killed himself by hanging himself in the basement area."

Nancy Grace Married, and Pregnant


At 47, Nancy Grace is pregnant with twins.

CNN anchor Nancy Grace was secretly married – and she's pregnant with twins, according to a report in the New York Post.

Grace, 47, tells the Post that she wed David Linch, an investment banker in Atlanta, whom she met at Mercer College in the late '70s. The pair married in April in a small, private ceremony attended only by their families in Macon, Ga.

Dang, that is one tall husband.

Apple Doesn't Sound So Bad Compared To This

A New Zealand judge has blocked a famiy from naming their son 4Real. The way the family came up with the name is truly inspiring...ok, its idiotic:

Wheaton said the idea for the name came when the couple saw the first scan of the child.

"We started thinking 'Jeez, he is for real?'" Wheaton said.

But when the parents filed the name with New Zealand's Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, they were told names beginning with a number were against the rules.

Registrar-General Brian Clarke said the rules are designed to prevent names that are "likely to cause offense to a reasonable person."

And for more silly names:

Nevaeh, which heaven spelled backwards, has become one of the world's most popular names. But others don't always pass the societal test.

Two boys, one in Michigan and the other in Texas, bear the name ESPN. They were named after the sports network.

Cameron Diaz- Not the Sharpest Tool in the Shed


But a tool nonetheless.

Actress Cameron Diaz appears to have committed a major fashion faux pas in Peru. The voice of Princess Fiona in the animated "Shrek" films may have inadvertently offended Peruvians who suffered decades of violence from a Maoist guerrilla insurgency by touring here Friday with a bag emblazoned with one of Mao Zedong's favorite political slogans.

While explored the Inca city of Machu Picchu high in Peru's Andes, Diaz wore over her shoulder an olive green messenger bag emblazoned with a red star and the words "Serve the People" printed in Chinese on the flap, perhaps Chinese Communist leader Mao's most famous political slogan.

Hasselhoff Gets Custody

I'm thinking the judge can relate to the drunken munchies. The tape showing Hasselhoff eating a burger while drunk apparently was not enough to keep his children from him as he got custody. Makes you wonder what the deal is with the mother.

From Star magazine:

David Hasselhoff got an early Father's Day gift from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Juhas: custody of his kids!

On Friday, June 15, the judge awarded sole and physical custody of Taylor-Ann, 17, and Hayley, 14, to Hasselhoff after a bitter custody battle with his ex, Pamela Bach.

Bach was granted visitation rights on alternate weekends and on Wednesday nights. Bach was reportedly seen crying after the hearing along side her lawyer Debra Opri (Larry Birkhead's former attorney).

Swanson was released on $500 (Canadian) bail. Officers escorted her into the police station in Kingston, Ontario, after Eisler's ex, Marcia O'Brien, filed a complaint against Swanson.

Looks Like Britney Still Acting Like Britney While I Was on Vacation

Britney was having trouble with her dress so she wore it backwards. Apparently the dress kept sliding down and she was showing some Britney Breasts.

Speaking of breasts, I just got back from Vegas.

I managed to avoid hearing about the Sopranos ending while away, and I think its because it was unexplanable (no simple phrase like "Tony was killed"). I also think because not that many people hanging out in casinos care about the Sopranos.

I'm still trying to decide what I thought of the finale but I think I liked it.

Isaiah Not Coming Back to Grey's


From People:

The speculation is over: After a controversial season, Isaiah Washington will not be returning to Grey's Anatomy, his rep and ABC Television Studio have confirmed.

Howard Bragman, Washington's publicist, says Washington's option was not renewed, and released this statement from the actor: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more." Bragman did not elaborate.

The cast was notified Thursday night of the final decision, which, says a source close to the situation, was a long time coming. In the end, the source says, Washington's behavior made him a liability.

Though rumors ran rampant following the season finale – during which Washington's character, Dr. Preston Burke, broke up with his fiancĂ©e, Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), and moved out of their apartment – the source insists that no decision had been finalized at the time of the finale.

Washington first came under fire last fall after getting into an altercation with Patrick Dempsey, during which he allegedly referred to castmate T.R. Knight with a homophobic slur.

Washington later apologized, checked into rehab, met with gay leaders and recently released a PSA decrying the use of hate speech.

If He Went to Rehab Without Telling the Press, No One Would Know He Was There


Richie Sambora is asking for privacy during his rehab stay. Seriously, he could've just gone.

This sentence on People.com cracked me up:

It is not clear how Sambora's treatment will affect his role in Bon Jovi. The band's new album, Lost Highway, is due out June 19.

Um, it's not 1989, so I'm gonna guess they'll be fine. Yes, I know they still tour (I saw them last year- RAWK ON!), but I think they can let Richie go to rehab without it affecting the band.

You know Jon is pissed. I think he's hot and all, but he just has rock diva written all over him.
