A Mother's Gift

OY! Just when you thought that things couldn't get worse between Britney Spears and her estranged mother Lynne Spears things have to go and get a bit nastier. Not satisfied with posting thinly veiled messages to Mama Lynne on her official website anymore, our dear Britney apparently paid a little visit to her lawyer's office to pick up a carefully worded letter that she then hand delivered to her mother on a set in Valencia, CA where Jamie Lynn Spears was working yesterday afternoon. Here are a few pictures of Britney serving her mother with the mysterious letter:

There are rumors going around that the letter is actually a restraining order but I do not believe that is the case. There are other rumors that this letter was a "love letter" but if you watch video of this exchange HERE you can see that it wasn't really a happy situation. I tend to believe that this document is a letter drafted by a lawyer that strongly encourages Mama Lynne to stay away from her children when they are with their father Kevin Federline. It is believed that Lynne and K-Fed worked together to force Britney into rehab earlier this year by threatening to join forces and take away her sons. It would seem that Britney is still upset over this percieved betrayal and is taking steps to try and insure that they can no longer conspire against her. It is hugely unfortunate that things between Brit and her mother have broken down completely ... but at this point, it seems that Britney is cutting ties with anyone that she considers a threat. Obvs, Lynne is "brokenhearted" over this whole incident. The whole situation is just sad. [Source]

In other news, Paris Hilton has packed up her shizz and has left the US mainland for the sunnier shores of Hawaii. Here are pictures of Paris unsuccessfully trying to slip into Hawaii as inconspicuously as possible ... wearing a big white muumuu, a large straw hat and her black wig disguise:

It is unclear how long Paris will be in Hawaii but she has committed herself to hosting a poker tournament in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks so she'll have to be back on the mainland by then. I hope she brought along the Bible she claims she loves to read ... that way she can actually learn some passages in case anyone else calls bullshit on her claims. It's funny, this newly reformed and changed Paris Hilton still looks and acts a lot like the old, vapid one. [Source]

Here are, what are believed to be, the last pics of Brad Pitt dropping off his little darlings Zahara and Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt at their last day of kindergarten in the Czech Republic. You will note that Pax is taking his newfound fame in stride and has decided to wear chic sunglasses just like his daddy. Zahara looks none too pleased:

It appears that the newest star in the Jolie-Pitt clan is really takin' over. I'm surprised that Zahara has let things get this far and I can't believe that she would let this new little interloper usurp her powerbase already. Is the reign of Princess Zahara dunzo already? [Source]

Jolie-Pitt mom Angelina was unavailable to drop off the kiddies off at school herself because she was bizzy on the set of her movie Wanted:

It's unclear if the children's last day of kindergarten is due to the fact that Angelina's Prague shoot is set to wrap soon or if the kids are just finished with the school year. In either instance it's a bit of a bummer that these daily Brangelina trips to school with the kids will soon be over. As unexciting and painfully normal as this routine has become, I must say that I quite liked seeing Brad and Angelina's commitment to their children on a daily basis. [Source]

David Beckham and his robot wife Victoria Beckham are already on the move again mere moments after Posh and the other Spices joined forces in London to announce the reunion of the Spice Girls. Here are pictures of Posh and Becks as they made their way thru Heathrow airport yesterday:

I'm sure I have NO IDEA why Becks always wears that fugly yellow thing on his head when he travels but at least when he wears it we know he's on his way to or from the airport. I understand that the Beckhams are going on holiday for the next couple of weeks before they are due to arrive in LA on July 12th -- which is my birthday! Oddly enough, I won't be in LA on the 12th as I'll be in London with my David to celebrate my birthday. Ah well, it would've made a nice birthday gift anyways. [Source]

Lily Allen, who famously loves to physically abuse photographers in plain sight of anyone who happens to be on the street, was arrested yesterday for allegedly assaulting a photog earlier this year. Here is the photo of Lily's high-kicking attack, caught on film, that led to her arrest:

Pop star Lily Allen has been arrested for allegedly attacking a photographer outside a nightclub in central London. The 22-year-old singer attended the police station at a pre-arranged time to be questioned in connection with an allegation of assault. She was released on police bail over the alleged assault on photographer Kevin Rush near the Wardour club in the Soho area on March 13. A Scotland Yard spokeswoman confirmed Allen was "arrested in connection with an allegation of assault. She has been bailed to return on a date in late July." The incident took place in March after Allen left a party she was hosting at The Wardour club in London. As she walked to the nearby Groucho club - a favourite haunt of her father Keith Allen - she suddenly turned on Mr Rush, who was standing among a group of photographers. She is alleged to have lunged forward and hit him in the face, leaving him reeling. Allen was accused of a previous attack on a photographer at the Brits awards. It was alleged she took off her stiletto and attacked a photographer as she left empty-handed, losing out to rival Amy Winehouse ... In another rant, Lily complained that she is a hate figure in the UK, but is treated like royalty in the US. She said: "In LA some of the paparazzi are really nice. But I think people hate me in England. "I'll write 10 million nice things, then I'll write one thing that annoys me and it's like: 'Lily Allen slams Madonna'. And I become that person that badmouths people, which I'm not." Yeah, it sounds like Miss Lily has a few anger management issues to work out. Regardless of the fact that she believes the press "hates" her she really should rethink her strategy of hitting back at her perceived detractors by actually hitting back at her perceived detractors ... um, especially when they photograph or video tape her physical attacks. She'd prolly be much more successful working out her anger issues if she just assaulted her underlings in the privacy of her own home ... just like Naomi Campbell. Oh wait, she actually got busted for doing that. Hey, here's an idea ... how about not hitting anyone at all ... that might work. [Source]

The ever entertaining (and usually scrubby-looking) Pete Doherty was on hand yesterday to sign scribble on copies of his first book entitled Books of Albion for fans at Red Snapper Books in London, England. Here are a few photos from his signing:

Obvs Pete saw no need to shower for the event, opting to wear a snappy top hat instead. Clearly the man is capable of scribbling in books with his eyes closed ... quite a talent. Actually, his scrawl is fairly legible (much more legible than my writing ... and I'm unsure what that says about me) and his little sketches look quite impressive (much more impressive than, say, Paris Hilton's jailhouse artisty). You're never quite sure what you're gonna get with good old Petey but he is fun to watch. [Source]

Now either Kristin Cavallri has a thing for New Zealand or her love for new boyfriend Nick Zano has overtaken her senses. Here is a pic of Kristin at the Pink Taco restaurant launch here in LA yesterday inadvertently showing off a new "NZ" tattoo on her left wrist:

It should go without saying that getting anyone's name or initials tattooed on your body is a bad idea (even if you're married) but at least we can take heart in the fact that Kristin never got a SC tattoo or a JW tattoo or a BJ tattoo (well, that we know of). I'm not sure I could forgive her if she got a BJ on her wrist. Nick Zano seems like a swell guy and a pretty good match for Kristin ... let's just hope this new ink doesn't turn out to jinx their relationship. [Source]

Here are new pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar doing a little shoe shopping in Beverly Hills this week:

With all the Buffyness that has been going on with me lately, it's nice to see her out and about these days. Someone should let SMG know that the Buffy sing-a-long will be back in the LA area in late September and it would be utterly amazing if she decided to stop by and surprise the audience with her presence. I'd even go so far as to share my popcorn with her if that would help entice her at all. [Source]

Here are a few pics of Hilary Duff's performance in Rockefeller Plaza in NYC on the Today Show this morning on NBC:

Hilary Duff will be hitting the road in just a few weeks for her World Tour so she must be warming up her act with these TV appearances. It looks like she's got her moves down already :D [Source]

Life & Style magazine scored a bunch of nudie pics of Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo gettin' hot and heavy in a hot tub together as they vacationed in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last weekend ... NEKKID! Here are a few of the (sadly) censored pics of La-Nessa gettin' in and out of the hot tub sans clothes:

Thus far the uncensored versions of these pics have yet to surface ... but hopefully we'll be able to see what these two are workin' with. I've always wondered what Lachey's Little Nicky looked like. [Source]

Alright, how's about we play a little game today ... can you guess which big name actor is unsuccessfully trying to hide his balding shame underneath a poorly applied wig?

It's a bit ironic that he is suffering with these HAIR issues, especially when you consider the title of his new movie which is due to hit theaters on July 20th. Click HERE to find out who it is. [Source]

Here's a funner game ... can you guess which sports star is the proud owner of this booty crack and these buns of steel?

Sadly it's not David Beckham or Cristiano Ronaldo ... but there is another athlete that I talk about on the blog from time to time. Click HERE to find out who it is. [Source]

And finally, today is the day that Apple's much talked about iPhone is released to the public. Starting at 6PM today (here in the US), interested folks can purchase an AT&T serviced iPhone in either 4Gb size or 8Gb size at AT&T and Apple stores across the country:

I'm too much of a gadget fiend to not snap up one of these phones so I'm going to venture out this evening to try and get one for myself. If you're lookin' procure an iPhone of your own you can click HERE to find your nearest AT&T Wireless store. I'm not entirely convinced that the iPhone will be the end-all/be-all, perfect mobile phone but I'm willing to give it a shot. [Source]

Les News:
So I spent yesterday afternoon getting ready for the Prince concert at the Roosevelt Hotel last night (ie. I tried to get as much sleep as I could to make up for all the sleep I wouldn't be getting later on) only to find out that Prince was feeling unwell and had to cancel his performance. Fortunately for me, I am able to attend tonight's show instead. So that's where I'll be tonight ... rockin' out to Prince.

Because my Prince plans fell thru last night I got to spend some time hanging out with Mike. We ate and just chilled at his place. Not too exciting but good enough for me.

Another weekend is upon us again ... I hope it's a good one for all y'all. I am out.
