Where My Beaches At?

Woot! The weather has warmed up considerably all over the country and y'all know what that means -- it's time to hit the beaches! In fact, with Sarah in town for the weekend, we're planning our own little trip to the beach later on today ... but we're not the only ones in a beachy mood. Here are pictures of Britney Spears and her BFF/cousin Allie spending some time together at a beach here in SoCal. It looks like someone felt that it was time to bust out the thong:

Perhaps that someone jumped the gun a bit. Brit-Brit is really lettin' it all hang out there, ain't she? To tell the honest truth, I've seen worse and she doesn't even look that bad. Sure, she may have a little more junk in the trunk but at least it gives her a little more bootyliciousness to work with. [Source]

Paris Hilton is doing pretty much everything she can except going to the beach in the waning days of her freedom. Paris has been running all over town like a mad woman taking as many lunches as she can with friends, paying as many visits to the gym as she still can and going to as many parties as she can squeeze in to her allotted time ... and doing so with a huge smile on her face. Paris paused to pose for a few photos at a stop at the Coffee Bean this weekend, putting on as brave a face as she could muster:

The huge sun hat and pigtails really make her look so innocent. It's hard to believe that this poor victim of circumstance is going to have to turn herself in to start serving a 23 day jail sentence in only 3 days. [Source]

After all the lunches and coffee breaks, Paris made sure to make her way to as many parties as she could schedule ... here are a few pics from a house party that Paris showed up to earlier this weekend:

As you can see, both Lauren LC Conrad and Lo from MTV's Laguna Beach were also at the same party no doubt pontificating on the ramifications of Paris' upcoming jail sentence -- like what she's going to be able to wear and how she's going to keep up with her beauty regiment while in the slammer. Adam Brody was also in the hiz showin' off that he can still hang with the staunchest hipsters in town. MTV is throwing a big bash tonight so I wouldn't be surprised if Paris made the rounds tonight to keep the party machine going ... June 5th is coming way too soon. [Source, thanks Karalee]

Speaking of MTV's big bash, tonight the MTV Movie Awards air live on MTV and the stars have been making their way into town for the big show. Both Amy Winehouse and Rihanna were bizzy yesterday afternoon at the Gibson Amphitheater with their performance rehearsals. Here are pictures of Victoria Beckham's arrival at LAX yesterday, she is scheduled to present an award at tonight's show:

Unfortch I will not be able to attend the awards this year. Because I knew that Sarah would be in town this weekend and we're planning on going out of town this afternoon, I couldn't make the Movie Awards. Even still, I am very excited to watch the show tonight ... I'm really excited to see Victoria Beckham back on the MTV stage after so many years away. I think the last time she graced an MTV awards stage she uttered something like Girl Power! while being flanked by the other Spice Girls. I'm interested to see if she can come up with something more tangible this time around. It might be the last time we yanks get to see Posh on US TV for quite some time ... word on the street is that VB has pulled out of her NBC reality show deal. Don't forget to tune in (or set your DVRs) for 8PM tonight to watch Sarah Silverman host the 2007 MTV Movie Awards. [Source]

Brandy must've gotten over her guilt from the deadly car accident she was involved in earlier this year because she has finally decided to go out and party again. Here are pictures of Brandy hangin' out with a couple of her girlfriends in LA last night:

If she was smart, she got one of her girlfriends to do the driving. I think it's great that Brandy is going out again ... I guess you can't cry over spilled milk blood forever. [Source]

Yesterday we got to see pictures of David Beckham in action on the soccer field in the England vs. Brazil match that took place on Friday night ... today we get to see Robbie Williams in action on the soccer field in the LA Vale vs. TP United match that took place yesterday:

Sure, Robbie might not be as talented in the soccer department as Becks but it does look like he's got some pretty sweet moves of his own. Besides, as much as I love me some Becks, I wouldn't want to hear him try and sing ... I hardly like listening to him speak ;) [Source]

Prison Break star Amaury Nolasco, who plays Fernando Sucre on the show, gives us an update on how his buddy and former Prison Break co-star Lane Garrison is doing in the wake of his guilty plea to vehicular manslaughter last month. According to Amaury, Lane is doing his best to hold on:

"He's doing great, under the circumstances," Nolasco, 36, who plays Fernando Sucre on the FOX drama, told PEOPLE at Thursday's BlackBerry Curve launch party in Los Angeles. "I was actually with him today. I was having lunch with him. It's sad. It's just sad what happened to both parties. Of course, there's a life lost. Lane is a phenomenal kid who made a mistake." Nolasco added, "He is holding on, under the circumstances" ... [Garrison] faces a maximum sentence of six years and eight months, but the actual time could be reduced with good behavior. He will be sentenced Aug. 2. "He is surrounding himself with his friends," Nolasco said. "He is very deeply sorry, of course. He's stepping up to the plate and taking whatever the consequences. He wants to help make amends" ... The actor has since been keeping a low profile. "He doesn't hang out much," said Nolasco. "I see him privately, like when I took him out to lunch today, hung out and spoke to him. Just go out and give my support. He's my boy." Asked if Garrison has reached out to the Setian family, Nolasco says, "I really don't know. I try to speak to him about something else." Again, I have to commend Lane for stepping up and taking responsibility for his actions, no matter what the consequences may be for him. It's very rare that someone in Hollywood would proclaim his guilt and take his punishment like a man instead of trying to weasel his way out of his responsibility. Something tells me that we won't be seeing Lane Garrison flitting about from party to party on the days leading up to his incarceration. [Source]

Yesterday we got to see pictures from Courtney Love's rehearsal sessions for her surprise live performance at the House of Blues here in LA on Friday night and today, thanks to Celebrity Babylon, we get pics from Courtney's actual performance on Friday night:

Well, it actually looks like Courtney is doing more talking than singing but you get the idea. C. Love's BFF David LaChapelle was in the hiz to offer his love and support and was there to give her a little tongue backstage. That's what friends are for. [Source]

We can't let the day pass without a little Lindsay Lohan update. As far as I can tell, she's still at the Promises Rehab Facility in Malibu, CA and hasn't escaped for any errant coffee (or border) runs or anything like that ... but News of the World managed to scrounge up a few disturbing pictures of Lindsay, taken a couple of months ago, at a party with some friends (one who looks to be Vanessa Minnillo) where she was playing around with a big knife ... you know, like everyone does at parties like this:

Taken just weeks before she was admitted to rehab for the second time, the drugs-crazed 20-year-old wild child is captured holding a KNIFE to a friend's throat at a party. The pal is also pictured sliding another blade down the Mean Girls star's breast ... as Lindsay slips her own knife into her mouth in a chilling game. A source told us: "These photos are very worrying. Lindsay is so out of control. She should not be left within a million miles of a knife. The states Lindsay gets herself into she is lucky to be alive." Our frightening exclusive pictures were taken four months ago at a house party where Lindsay was publicly claiming she was reformed and sober after her first bout of rehab. Now she is back in a Malibu clinic after driving her Mercedes into a tree, high on coke and booze. Last night a friend from Lindsay's inner circle revealed how the star's mental state has continued to crumble behind the walls of the Promises clinic in California. Now, while I don't think these pics are the perfect example of stability, I don't really view them as proof that Lindsay was off her rocker. Drunk people do dumb things ... tho, I guess the fact that she was drunk at all, especially when she was supposedly undergoing recovery, is a problem in and of itself. Just get help, Linds.

And finally, it's time for the Hot Dude of the Week. As I mentioned earlier, the weather has been heatin' up all over the place and that means it's time to wear less clothing ... sometimes the only way one can keep cool is by wearing only their underwear and a hat ... like Rob here:

I am all for hot dudes keepin' cool as best they can and if that means all they can wear is a pair of undies and a hat to beat the heat than so be it. I wouldn't mind if he only wore his hat to tell you the truth. Enjoy! [Source]

Les News:
So ... Sarah's here and Adriana's happy and everyone's happy. As is our nature when we're all together, we can't make plans for shit. Things change from moment to moment so it's impossible for us to make plans with anybody and expect things to work out properly. So, we have to take the day as it comes. First we had a great lunch at Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock before heading into Pasadena to do a little shopping. Sarah and Adriana kinda barricaded themselves in an H&M dressing room to try on every article of clothing in the place ... but I ran into Tony and his friend Art and got to hang with them for a bit while the girls did their thing. After shopping we decided to go see the movie Knocked Up:

Every review I've read proclaims Knocked Up as the funniest movie of the year ... and I have to agree, the movie is funny as hell. There are so many funny jokes in the flick that I can't possibly name them all (but the line about dressing like a Cholo on Easter was pretty damn funny) but I could've gone my whole life without finding out how a whole group of guys could give pink eye to one another. Katherine Heigl is really charming in this movie as is Seth Rogan. The thing I liked best about this movie is how real it turned out. The writing was really realistic which made you feel really sympathetic towards the characters.

Oh, and I'm in the movie too. I kid you not, in the scene where Katherine's character is interviewing people at the MTV Movie Awards last year you can see me (really quickly) in the background of 2 of Katherine's close-ups. In one of the close-ups you can also see David as well. Much love to James who gave me the head's up so that I could look for me in the movie :)

The movie is really cute ... really funny ... and is really a great PSA for safe sex. You have to check it out.

After the movie we spent way too much time trying to figure out what we were going to do next so we decided to just go out for a quick drink at The Roost. After Adriana and Sarah got totally blitzed there we stopped in at the Bigfoot Lodge so that they could enjoy their signature Toasted Marshmallow drink on the way home. Needless to say, I was the sober designated driver. Here are a few pics from our night:

It ain't a party until Adriana is rolling around in the street ;)

Today we're off to the beach ... and I guess that is all for now. I'm out.
