Britney Spears, who has gone off the deep end this week, is now alleged to be a drug user. In Touch Weekly is reporting that Spears paid a visit to the restroom of a Hollywood restaurant, where the pop star plopped her pursed down on the counter and in front of several witnesses, opened her bag to reveal a bounty of pills inside. "It looked like a pharmacy in there - I have never seen so many pills," a witness said. "There was a bottle of Paxil (an antidepressant) and a bottle of Xanax (for anxiety) that she took out and put on the counter." Wow! That is a bold claim. Maybe this is the reason that Britney seems to have enough energy to go out every single night and stay out until 5 or 6AM? I'm not saying that I necessarily believe these allegations but it would be very sad if this turns out to be true. The problem is that if you want to be seen as a party girl and you party like a party girl then not only do these sorts of stories start to start going around ... but they also begin to become believable. It just sucks ... she was in a position, just a few weeks ago, where she could have reinvented herself as a strong, single mom -- once again, becoming America's Sweetheart and now, according to THIS ABC News report, former fans see her as "trashy, slutty and sickening" and "have no desire to see K-Fed's used goods". Even Bette Midler has gone so far as to label Britney (and her new friend Lindsay Lohan) "wild and woolly sluts'": The singer turned Oscar-nominated actress hit out at the duo who have been repeatedly photographed enjoying a string of wild nights out - missing their underwear. "I've been on the other side to these wild and woolly sluts that we are seeing around our lives these days and I've taken the other side," she said. "I started my life out as pretty wild but I have decided, after much growing and living, that it's time that we got nicer." Talking about the pair's headline-grabbing decision to be snapped minus any underwear, she joked: "I'm wearing underwear, in fact a lot of underwear. In fact I'm wearing all the underwear that those girls are not wearing - at least two bras and several pairs of panties." When asked on the US TV show Extra if she had a message for the American socialites, she replied: "Get a life, get a grip. I mean someone should sit those ladies down." As if that wasn't bad enough, even Courtney Love is chastising Britney: Troubled singer Courtney Love suggested that she should stay at home more to look after her children while former supermodel Janice Dickinson claimed that Britney would be wise to "buckle down and become a parent". Damn, you know it's bad when C. Love and Janice Dickinson (!!!) are talkin' shizz about your parenting skillz. Here's hoping that all of this negative press will knock some sense into our dear Britney and she'll smarten up a bit. If not, I fear her comeback will be over before it has even begun.

Will Smith and his family met up with a few of their closest friends -- Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony to name a few -- for the Hollywood premiere of his new movie The Pursuit of Happyness last night. Here are a few photos from the red carpet:

I'm not sure when J. Lo and Marc Anthony became a part of the TomKat in crowd but they have been spending quite a bit of time with them lately. I love me some J. Lo but this white dress just looks sloppy. I'm shocked that Marc Anthony tried to clean himself up ... he is actually looking less corpse-like than usual. It always seems so strange to me when celebs like this hang out as friends ... like, what do they talk about? I imagine that with that many egos in play it must be hard for them to enjoy one another's company for too long. It's so strange. Oh, and Will's new movie looks to schmaltzy for my taste. [Source]
Earlier this week, when Victoria Beckham was still in town, TomKat organized a dinner for their friends J. Lo, Marc and Posh so that they could all just hang out. Yeah, weird -- I wonder if Scientological machinations are afoot? BUT, I must say that J. Lo looked much hotter in her red cape dress than in her white sack dress, especially since she was showing off her hot legs:

Truth be told, Victoria Beckham looked pretty good herself. I can't deny that her legs look really good. I'm not sure which set of gams look sexier actually. [Source]
But, Posh has already flown the coop and has left LA ... here are pictures of the once again ridiculous-looking Victoria Beckham dressed like a reject from a Janet Jackson music video at LAX airport:

I really hope she wasn't going for inconspicuous because ... she just looks extremely conspicuous in that funny get-up. [Source]
Oh Lindsay ... Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay ... have you really lost your mind or are you just trying to appear crazy for the sake of publicity? I fear I know the answer to that question but I'll leave it up to the individual to make that assessment on their own. The full transcript of that crazy email that she sent out was been revealed and ... well ... it's kinda effing nuts. Here are some pictures of L. Lo supping at Orso restaurant this week with some friends of hers ... unfortch, neither Al Gore nor Hilary Clinton were in attendance:

Here is the full text of that incoherent email that Lindsay sent out to her peeps, as reported by the New York Post:
Subject: The way of the future-Howard Hughes once said.
I am willing to release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite letter to the press if any of you are willing to help. Simply to state my oppinions on how our society should be educated on for the better of our country. Our people. Also because I have such an impact on our younger generations, as well as generations older than me. Which we all know and can obviously see.
People are just mean. I am going to proceed with putting LR to court if need be for what she's done to me. Its my life. I want to live it. People cannot lie and think that it is okay to continue on having done so. Simply because they will do it again to someone else, and that is not alright with me. I have had many ups and downs, as do we all.
But to make false accusations to one girl is unjust in my oppinion. Having said this, I am willing to do anything I need to get my life the way it should be and the way I work for it to be.. And have thus far in my career. Let's sue the tabloids for saying the things they say. Defamation of character. Amongst other illegal accusations, I will repeat this over and over to make my point. I am not fully aware of what these, again, accusations are, but I am fully and eagerly prepared to learn them. Have harvey and all lawyers help me please.
If he is willing. Al Gore will help me he came up to me last night and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me. If he is willing to help me, let's find out. Hilary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Evan metroplis, and John Daur who works with them would be willing, if we just ask. If we just ASK. I'd really like to fix things and refuse to stop on any account for these unintelligent, vulgar people who like to hurt other people. Not just me, but everyone. I'm willing to hold a press conference and I will do anything necessary to do so. In putting an end to 'these people' trying to put an end to me and belittle me as well as try to be the demise of me after all I've gone through and done at such a young and tender age in a womans life.
Its enough already, I've had enough and I am going to be the one to make a change. For all of my fellow actors, friends, people I admire and for those I've lost in the recent days, years, months. I do believe the focus in the world has misplaced and directed in the wrong directions and I am willing to be the one to help change that and use my celebrity status to move the focalpoint /(s) of the press to the real issues that we have going on as we speak. Anyone that is willing to help and has a family member or friend, even co-worker that is in a position to be involved in any way, shape or form, please contact me, Jenni Muro, Leslie Sloane, Michael Heller, Jason Sloane, Jason Weinberg as soon as you can or are willing. Just ask them, it doesn't hurt to ask. So let's start now, rather than waste time. Do you agree? Because I'm doing it either way. The way of the future. Thank you for your time.
Um ... wow. Well, at least it seems that Lindsay is interested in trying to get her life in order but I don't know that she's in the right frame of mind to make her desires come true. If she's really delusional enough to believe that the former VP and the former First Lady of the US are at all willing to help her take on the tabloids then she's got some major problems. Page Six speculates that the "LR" that Lindsay is talking about in her email is her former assistant, Lindsay Ratowsky: In the message, Lohan threatened to sue "LR" for allegedly selling information to the tabloids, and claimed former Vice President Al Gore was going to help her get her message across (which Gore hadn't heard about). Lohan's rage stems from a falling-out she and Ratowsky had over six months ago, when Ratowsky left her to work for Jessica Biel. Lohan's ire was rekindled last week when she spotted Ratowsky at a GQ party at the Sunset Tower in L.A. It's extremely fascinating to see how the brain of the Hollywood "It" Girl works ... it seems entirely plausible that seeing her former assistant AND Al Gore both at that same GQ party would trigger her incoherent email rant. It's just stunning to get a peek at just how out-of-control celebs really are -- and you know that this is just the tip of the iceberg. If only we could see what celebs are really like on the inside ... I bet it'd be pretty freakin' scary. Just say no, people. [Source]
In happy news, In Touch Weekly is reporting that Lance Bass and Reichen Lehmkuhl are getting things back on track together and are planning a trip to Hawaii together at the end of this weekend. Here are a couple of super cute pictures of Leichen (courtesy of CelebrityBabylon.com) as a happy couple back in October when they marched together at the AIDS Walk in West Hollywood:
Lance Bass and boyfriend Reichen Lehmkuhl have made up and are set to go to romantic Hawaii to celebrate. "They are back together and very happy," a close friend of Lance's says, just six days after the former *NSync-er and his boyfriend said they were going their separate ways. The pair had planned to go to Monday's charity luau for Reef Check Hawaii on Waikiki Beach, but Reichen pulled out following Friday's split. Now though, the one-time Amazing Race contestant has changed his plans and confirmed he will be going - as Lance's partner. I am really pulling for these two. I want their relationship to succeed because I think that they make a really great couple. Relationships ain't easy and they take a lot of work ... it appears that these two are very interested in putting in the effort to make their relationship flourish. [Source]
Boo! Madonna is my homegirl and all but I think she looks horrrrrible in this fur coat made of dead chinchillas:

I thought for sure that Madonna was anti-fur but I guess I was wrong. Whatevs, I guess peeps can wear whatever they like but I'm just not a fur fan. [Source]
Blech! It looks like Xmas is coming to the Stewart household ... in a very not-cute package. Here are pics of Kimberly Stewart picking up a few Xmas decorations so that she can get into the Xmas spirit:

I feel bad for that tree. I'm sorry but Kim Stewart is just a bit nast. [Source]
Speaking of nast, what the hell is up with Gwen Stefani's bloomers that she thought would be a good idea to wear at the taping of Monday's TRL on MTV?
Gwen's got her own sense of style, that's for sure ... it's usually hit or miss. The shorts are a big miss. Her pompadour is a bit troubling as well but she has always been very creative with her hairstyles. Ah Gwendolyn, I still love you so. Please come at us soon with a hit outfit that will make this horrid on a distant memory. [Source]
LOL ... Beyonce always has the worst wigs ever ... you would think with her money that she would make sure her shizz is flawless ... and yet ... well ... I love this picture of B that's been going around lately:
Is her entire scalp usually glued to her head? Is her face mask peeling off? Is she auditioning for a Star Trek movie? What exactly is going on here? [Source]
The Surreal Life begat Strange Love which begat Flavor Love which begat the new show I Love New York -- which will debut on VH-1 in January. Now, I don't know if there have ever been this many spin-offs from a single show but the success even with the diluted star power is impressive (ie. Surreal Life features z-list has-beens, Flavor of Love features nobody hoochies, I Love New York features the Queen nobody hoochie of all and her mother). Here are a couple of promo pictures from the upcoming series and I've taken the liberty to choose my fave picks of dudes to win New York's heart:
Personally, I don't think that this show will be as big a hit as Flavor of Love has been. While it's true that New York knows how to bring the drama, I can't imagine that she will be able to whip up any said drama without any other women to compete/contend with. I'm pretty sure she's going to dominate these dudes from the get-go and emasculate them weekly on national TV -- maybe that's the angle? I am definitely interested in watching this show ... but as I said, I don't think that drama will be broughten as it was on Flavor of Love. Will New York find true long amongst this pack of players? Tune in to VH-1 on January 8th to find out. [Source]
Dakota Fanning is featured in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine portraying a few different heroines from different Fairy Tales. The photos were shot by Karl Lagerfeld and do a pretty good job of stylizing Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderealla and Sleeping Beauty:
I'm actually surprised this idea hasn't been thought of before. These are actually pretty cute pictures. It's strange seeing Dakota portrayed as a little girl because she hardly ever comes across as a little girl to me. I love how Little Red's riding hood looks like it cost a fortune. That's pretty fab.

ATTENTION: HEROES SPOILER ALERT WARNING
And finally, quite a few Pink readers have emailed me their thoughts on the last episode of Heroes (which aired last Monday night) and have contended that Sylar was unable to steal Eden's powers because she shot herself in the head before he was allowed to do so. Because we didn't actually see Eden shoot herself in the head (all we saw was blood and Sylar's surprised expression), I felt it was possible that perhaps she didn't shoot herself in the head, only in the neck or some other place which would allow Sylar to get at her brain. BUT, NBC posts graphic novels on their website that add further information to the episodes and, apparently, Eden was successful in shooting herself in the head:
I was finally starting to like Eden and she had to go and kill herself in order to keep Sylar from stealing her power. Personally, I liked it better when what really happened to Eden was purely speculatory because it made for a better cliffhanger. Maybe NBC shouldn't give away too much information like this. That said, I really like how the online graphic novels supplement the storyline overall. [Source, thanks Rhonda]
