Sleeping With The Enemy

Sigh. Here we go again ... more of the same, more of the worst, more of horribly unintelligent Britney Spears shooting herself in the foot ... with an AK-47 ... at point-blank range ... repeatedly. Brit-Brit managed to amputate herself from Paris Hilton's hip and spent last night out with just a regular friend of hers. At a seemingly routine stop at a gas station Brit made sure to give the paps what they wanted:

And so ... the vagina slip has become just another Britney Spears cliche ... but unlike her other famed trademarks (the ratty extensions, the scrunchies, the gum chewing, the bare feet), this new trend of hers just seems horribly damaging. The fact that these crotch shots come off more trashy than sexy should be troubling to Britney and prolly more importantly, her "people". Larry Rudolph! Where are you?! I realize that Britters is a grown woman (who has already been married twice and given birth twice) but she seems clearly incapable of making the right decision in any circumstance. Kevin Federline can't even be blamed for any of this. What has the world come to when K-Fed appears the lesser of two evils when compared to Britney Spears?! Okay ... that might be taking it a bit far but she seriously seems set on flushing her career and certainly her image down the toilet. [Source]

Here is another shining example of Britney's poor judgment ... she appears to have become smitten with one of the paparazzi photographers who has been following her around lately ... does this remind you of anyone else?

That's right ... Anna Nicole Smith once found comfort in the arms of a paparazzo named Larry Birkhead and then nine months later gave birth to a baby girl who she claims is not his but he claims is his daughter. Personally, I believe that Larry Birkhead is the father of Anna Nicole's child (I don't believe a word that comes out of Howard K. Stern, Anna's lawyer and fake husband, or Anna Nicole's mouth on this matter) and I have a horrible fear that Britney could possibly end up in the same predicament. Yes, this may sound like I'm jumping the gun a little but c'mon, it's not at all outside the realm of possibility. If Britney Spears becomes the new Anna Nicole Smith I'm checkin' out for good.

Incidentally, I'm not exactly sure if there is trubs in paradise already between Britney Spears and Paris Hilton but one second it was announced that they would be co-hosting the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas next week ... and then the next second it was announced that Britney decided to pull out and not host the awards show with Paris at all. Hmm ... I wonder if there was a little spat betwixt the ladies?

Things seem to be just fine between Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie (as they should be) ... the pair met up last night at a Volkswagen party for their new concept car called the Tiguan and proceeded to have a fabulous time together ...

... Hollywood "It" Girls Hayden Panettiere (Class of '06) and Kristin Cavallari (Class of '05) were also in attendance. And not to harp on the matter but, this is the type of event that Britney should be making appearances at ... not random gas stations in Malibu showing off her no-no spot. Whatev ... I'm gonna let it go for now. Incidentally, Paris looks cute in that hat ... I wonder if she borrowed it from Lindsay Lohan? ;) [Source, Source]

Speaking of Lindsay, it looks like she's trying to make kink couture happen ... and if anyone can make it fetch, it's L. Lo. Here are a few pics of Lindsay showin' off her new pair of gold handcuffs ...

... cuz, you know ... you never know when they might come in handy. I understand that Lindsay has been hanging out with Stavros Niarchos lately. I wonder if she borrowed him from Paris? [Source]

While all of this drama has been unfolding here in Los Angeles, Jessica Simpson has been busy in Louisiana working on a new movie ... oh, it looks like she got a little visit from Papa Joe Simpson on the set:

You gotta give it up to Papa Joe ... he is always lookin' out for his little girl. [Source]

Josh Duhamel paid a little visit to MTV's TRL yesterday to promote his new Hostel-esque movie Turistas and was lookin' migh-ty damn fine doing so:

Yessss, he is a pretty man. I gotta say, I was a bit turned off when I heard that Turistas was a Hostel rip-off but I ain't gonna lie -- I'm totes gonna go see the movie. The trailers look great and there is always room for another gory horror film. And Hello! Josh Duhamel is half nekkid in it ... count me in! [Source]

North of the border, Gwen Stefani paid a little visit to the Much Music studios to promote her new album The Sweet Escape on the show Live@Much:

It looks like she is gonna wear out that new wig of hers in no time. It's all good tho ... The Sweet Escape is a hot album. I can't stop listening to it these days. I think I like it better than Fergie's The Dutchess. It's deff gonna make my Best Albums of '06 list. Have YOU heard it yet? [Source]

Speaking of horrible blonde wigs, EVE rocked a wig of her own at an in-store appearance at a MAC cosmetics store in Harlem, NY in support of World AIDS Day which happens this Friday December, 1:

I don't think that I like this new look of hers but I gotta give her mad props and lots of love for stepping up to raise awareness for World AIDS Day. I've even been re-considering my opinion of the Product (RED) campaign. Any endeavor that seeks to raise funds for AIDS research and treatment is a noble one in my book. I admit I was a bit turned off by all the heavy-handed ads that flooded the media a few weeks ago but, I can appreciate the merits of the campaign. [Source]

Awww ... how sweeeet! Long-time paramours Mickey and Minnie Mouse were both on hand for the Xmas tree lighting ceremony at the Lincoln Center in New York City earlier this week:

No word on whether or not Minnie suffered any wardrobe malfunctions. [Source]

Snoop Dogg was arrested last night, again (I think for the third time in recent weeks), on weapons and drug possessions charges after he finished taping a musical performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno ... WTF? Has the man got it in for the Snoop D-O-Double-G?

Snoop Dogg was arrested for a third time in three months Tuesday night when police executed a search warrant on the rapper and his crew as they were leaving a taping of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" near Los Angeles. The search turned up marijuana, a firearm and cocaine in a false compartment in the car that the rapper was traveling in and resulted in Snoop's arrest, charged as a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and illegal drugs ... The execution of the search warrant on Snoop (real name Calvin Broadus) occurred on the roadside outside the "Tonight Show" studios around 6 p.m. and shut down traffic for hours, according to reports. Authorities have warrants to search Snoop's Diamond Bar, California, home and "his personal vehicle, as well as other vehicles and persons with whom he is associated," according to the police department's press release. The warrants were part of an investigation that stemmed from an October 26 incident at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, where police arrested the rapper for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and for transportation of marijuana. Snoop's attorney, Donald Etra, told MTV News that the rapper was pulled over as he was leaving the studio where the "The Tonight Show" is taped, and that he made the $60,000 bail and was released a short time after 1 a.m. Wednesday, nearly seven hours after his arrest. Etra said Snoop was not aware that police were watching him or were preparing to execute the warrants. "It's too early to discuss what happened and it is my understanding that at this point no charges have been filed by the district attorney," he said. "At this point he is innocent of all charges." An arraignment in the case is set for January 11. OUCH! I wonder how one explains the existence of cocaine hidden in a false compartment of one's car? Snoop has always struck me as a great guy, it sucks that this stuff is happening with him. I suppose we'll see what comes of any of this. I'm usually pretty confident that these sorts of charges tend to go away in Hollywood ... but how many times can the guy get arrested and charged and still walk away scot free? [Source]

Pamela Anderson is speaking out about her divorce on her official website where she blogs from time to time ... in her latest entry she discusses her concern for the way the press is handling news of her divorce:

This latest entry comes right after her entry that confirmed news of her divorce which came right after her Happy Thanksgiving post ... which is actually kind of sad. There are a lot of stories going around about who's at fault for this divorce (you can blame Kid Rock or you can blame Pamela) but the whole thing is just sad. I thought they'd last forever! Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see who Pam marries next. [Source]

Here are a few pictures from the sold-out tour closing show the Scissor Sisters played at London's Wembley Arena earlier this week ... also, check out who hung out with the band at the after-party:

Not only do I <3 Ian McKellen but I also love that Sophie Ellis-Bextor was there as well! She is one of my fave UK popstars. Lily Allen, who opened the show, was also in the hizzy partying with the jubilant Sisters after all was said and done. Next up, the Scissor Sisters head for a Japanese tour in January. Woot! [Source]

Fergie Ferg is on the cover of the November issue of Paper magazine ... here are a few photos from her photospread:

Fergie looks a bit like what Tammy Faye might look like if she were a member of the cartoon rock band The Misfits who was starring in the sequel to Boogie Nights ... but just not as cute. [Source]

And finally, here are a few screencaps of Michelle Trachtenberg starring as video blogger Willow17 from last night's episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent:

Yeah, she's pretty fly for a white girl. [Source]

Les News:
Last night I finally got to hang out with Jim after what seems like ages since I'd seen him last. He was off gallivanting in NYC last week and last night was the first chance we got to hang out since his return. We had a quick Italian dinner where we were able to just hang out and catch up. We made plans to hang out more this week before I have to fly off and do my own gallivanting in NYC next week.

Things continue to be quiet here on my end. It's actually nice not having to go out every night. I know that I'll be bizzy soon enough so I'm just happy enjoying the alone time that I've been having lately. So yeah ... I guess that is all ... I am out.
