Justin’s New Girlfriend?
January 5, 2007

Rumors have been swirling for several weeks now that Justin Timberlake has split from Cameron Diaz. I remained skeptical until I heard that JT took none other than his mother to the premiere of his movie, Alpha Dog. Neither camp is fessing up to the split, but JT has been getting all kinds of close to Scarlett Johansson (who split from Josh Hartnett in November) lately. She’s starring in his new video and allegedly snuck into the Alpha Dog after-party to be with her man.

If the rumors are for real, do you think she’ll be a better match for Justin than Cameron? Weigh in with our newest iVote Hollywood poll.

Britney and Kevin’s Custody Agreement
January 5, 2007

E_BritneySeanPreston2_136.jpgI know, I’m as sick of hearing about Britney as you are, but the stories about her just keep getting better. TMZ is now reporting that she and K-Fed have reached a custody agreement. Now, before you go getting all excited, the agreement is only for the month of January. What they have been doing up to this point, I have no idea. In the new agreement, however, the train wrecks parents will have joint legal custody of Sean P. and Jayden J. What it means really, however, is that the kids will live with the nanny Britney, and K-Fed gets to come visit.

How’s this for some specifics, though? K-Fed can only see the kids between 11am and 4pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at Britney’s house. The momtart can be there, but she’s not allowed to interfere.

So, if Kevin starts toking up in the living room, does this mean she’s not allowed to say anything?

Moral of the story? If you’re going to party your panties off every night of the week for a month and a half straight and then spend your days apologizing to your fans, just hire a really awesome divorce attorney.

Should Britney have received that much custody of her kids in light of her recent lifestyle? Is it actually possible that K-Fed might have been good in some small way for the pop star?

And She Keeps Talking
January 5, 2007

Britney clearly missed the grade school lesson that actions speak louder than words. Check out what she’s posted on her official website now (I bolded the good parts for ‘ya!):

Dear Fans,

It has been a while since I’ve addressed you personally here on my official website. The last couple of years have been quite a ride for me, the media has criticized my every move and printed a skewed perception of who I really am as a human being. Behind every decision I have made in my public life there always seems to be an apparent contradiction. I have come to terms with that which is why I usually don’t pay much attention to it.

The last couple of years have been very enlightening for me and now that I’ve had the time to be “me,” I’ve been able to sit down and think about where I want to go with myself as an entertainer with absolutely no strings attached. I am now more mature and feel like I am finally “free.” I’ve been working so hard on this new album and I can’t wait for you all to hear it and to go on tour again! I would like to exclusively tell you that I am working hard to release the new album sometime later this year, but the date is of course not certain yet. I look forward to coming back this year bigger and better than ever, and to also reaching out to my fans on a more personal level. I noticed today that one of my biggest fansites is shutting down soon and I want you all to know that I do understand all the reasons that went behind making that decision, and I am sad to see it closing. If I were you I’d be unhappy too if I had to read what I’ve been reading every day. But trust me, I get it. I know I’ve been far from perfect and the media has had a lot of fun exaggerating my every move, but I want you all to know that I love my fans so much, and I appreciate everything you have done for me, so Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Love,
Britney

P.S. “I love myself. I love myself.” (Ok, she didn’t really write the P.S., but she probably thought about it.)

PARIS HILTON was out last night at Area in her new Bentley Continental GTC convertible. Hopefully she’s not gonna let Stavros drive and enjoys the hell outta driving such a beautiful machine.

She Said What?
January 5, 2007

E_BritneySpears3_136.jpgBritney is good for the soul. She makes us laugh. Here’s why this time:

First came this series of hilarious quotes from Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph:

  • “She understands what’s going on right now, and she calls it her ‘rocky moment.’ Britney knows exactly what she needs to do.”

  • “We were sitting there (on New Year’s Eve) drinking orange juice. She got tired in a club, and we took her back to her room. Suddenly, I’m hearing words like ‘collapsed’ and ‘passed out.’ “

  • “She’s taking all the right steps. Britney Spears will be back and absolutely at the top of the entertainment industry very soon.”

    Then, after a dinner out in Hollywood, the “disheveled” mom tart was over heard saying, “I love myself, I love myself.”

    That’s good, Brit. We’re glad someone does. Keep up the positive attitude.

  • Wedding Crashers Star Weds Crash Star
    January 5, 2007

    Congrats to Bradley Cooper, who starred in Wedding Crashers, and Jennifer Esposito, of Crash and that short-lived WB show, Related. The cute couple exchanged vows in late December. There’s no word on whether Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson crashed the bash.

    I’m a little torn as to whether this marriage is going to work out. On the one hand, they’ve kept their relationship super low-key, which generally a good sign for long-lasting Hollywood romances. But seriously, when you’re known as that couple whose big roles have been in titles involving the word “crash,” only one phrase comes to mind — crash and burn. Still, best of luck!

    Mono Marilyn Manson
    January 5, 2007

    E_MarilynManson_136.jpgAnd I really thought this marriage was going last (hahaha)… Page Six is reporting that shock rocker Marilyn Manson is being served today with divorce papers by his wife of one year, stripper-aficionado Dita Von Teese. A friend of Dita’s tells the mag:

    “He’s not been responsive. (Dita) loved him so much, but he has too many demons. He can’t even communicate with her at this point. She tried to tell him she was divorcing him, but she can’t even get him on the phone. She moved out of the house and he hasn’t even noticed.”

    He can’t communicate with her now?!? Could he ever? C’mon, if you’re going to marry the Manson (whom you’ve been seeing for seven freaking years!), you gotta know upfront what you’re getting yourself into — demons and all. Maybe the former Playboy model just decided to give up her own dark side and wear pink when she signed on as the spokesmodel for MAC makeup’s Viva Glam lipstick line.

    Paparazzi Henry’s Star Encounters 1/4/07
    January 5, 2007

    Hi from Hollywood!

    “AREA”—————–

    PARIS HILTON – It was a chilly and windy night in L.A. but that did not stop the lovely Paris who showed up in her brand new exotic Bentley convertible. She is back from her exciting New Year’s celebration and appearances in Australia. This is a car fit for a star like Paris and she looked sensational in the drivers seat! She had the music playing and she made a dull night come alive!

    SHEMAR MOORE – The “Criminal Minds” star will next be seen in “Motives 2.” He was more than eager to get his party on. He was very jovial.

    KEVIN CONNOLLY – The talented “Entourage” star is a big fan of “Area.” After a relaxing evening of partying, he hopped in his car and headed into the night.

    A fight broke out and if you are interested in seeing some wild action in the street, check out my video. It brought the boulevard to a standstill.

    PARIS HILTON – It was like day and night. Cut from the crazy street fight to the fun-lcving and glamorous Paris in her amazing Bentley. Yes, everything happens in Hollywood and it goes from one extreme to the other, in just a matter of minutes! Paris blessed the club and the paparazzi with her presence, waved goodnight and took off in that super car.

    PRINTZ BOARD -”The Black Eyed Peas” – I chatted with the musician about the popular group. I mentioned to him that I have known Fergie for years and that she is really sweet and talented. He totally agreed and said that Fergie is his homegirl and she is great. He added that she finally put out a record to show people that she can really sing.

    SHEMAR MOORE – Shemar closed down the joint. He eats up the cameras and joked around. The ladies man just loves the attention!

    That does it for now. There was not too much out there this evening but at least I got a few people. I don’t have to tell you that the highlight was definately Paris. Well, I couldn’t resist!
    From Hollywood…have fun!

    Lindsay Lohan Hospitalized
    January 4, 2007

    E_LindsayLohan4_136.jpgLindsay “I’m in AA” Lohan has once again landed herself in the hospital. I swear, the stars go to the ER as much as they go out clubbing. Is it the doctors? Something in the water? The comfy, remote-controlled beds? What am I missing?

    This time, according to TMZ.com, Linds was admitted after being diagnosed with appendicitis. She reportedly had her appendix removed and is “resting comfortably.” Hmmm, I can’t help but wonder if this is kinda like those other million times that she went to the hospital to treat “exhaustion” or some other dubious illness.

    I’m going to need to see the scar on her stomach before I believe she didn’t OD or something. Good thing spring break is just around the corner — you know she’s not giving up those bikinis anytime soon.

    SAG Nominations Announced
    January 4, 2007

    As I’ve said, I’m an award show season dork. I love them all — even the People’s Choice Awards. I like the SAG Awards a lot too because, like the Golden Globes, it includes both television and movie stars. And…
