Britney's Darkest Day - K-Fed Wins Custody

Er, remember how I hoped that this week would be free of more legal woes for Britney Spears ... yeah, that ain't happenin'. TMZ is reporting that Britney Spears has lost primary custody of her children in court today to her ex-hubby Kevin Federline. According to the ruling that was handed down today, Brit Brit will have to hand over primary custody to K-Fed at 12pm PT this Wednesday October 3rd "until further order of the court":

L.A. County Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon issued an order today stating that Kevin Federline, the boys' father, "is to retain physical custody of the minor children on Wednesday, October 3, 2007 at 12:00 PM until further order of the court."

It's unclear if all of this biz with her driver's license had anything to do with today's ruling (ie. whether it was the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back") but I suspect that the decision handed down by Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon has more to do with Britney's actions overall rather than one particular incident. I cannot imagine what the poor girl must be going thru at a time like this. I only hope she can keep it together long enough to, hopefully, one day win back custody of her children. This will surely be a huge blow to an already fragile Britney Spears. I just hope she is strong enough to weather this latest, devestating storm. [Source]


Spice Up Yer Life

Welp, it's Monday morning so I guess that means it's time to check in and see how Britney Spears spent her weekend. Was she involved in another driving accident? Was she involved in another wardrobe malfunction? Was she partying her booty off? Well ... lessee ... first up, our dear Britney had her turn with the kiddies for at least part of the weekend as she was seen out and about in Malibu, CA carting around the young'ns ... altho it wasn't all that hot here in SoCal this weekend (especially up in Malibu), Britters was rockin' some pretty heinous pit stains ... which little Jayden James didn't seem to appreciate all that much:

By day, Brit Brit was ever the doting mother that she usually is but when the sun goes down, the kids either get put to bed or handed over to Kevin Federline ... cuz that's when the real party gets underway for our dear Britney. [Source, Source]

Here are pics of damsel in distress Britney out and about in the wee hours of the morning running around in a pair of pink UGGs boots with a car that has completely run out of gas. Natch, the paps who follow her every move swooped in to save the day, getting her car to a gas station and then filling it up with the petrol:

Since she was already at the gas station, she prolly thought it'd be a great idea to stock up on the snack foods. Yeah, I don't get how Britney is always running out of gas ... doesn't she know how to keep the tank filled? Er, well, I guess when you've got an army of photogs following you around, willing to fill your tank for just a few pictures then I guess maybe it is smarter to let your car run out of gas so that you can score a free fill-up.

OY! It gets worse ... Life & Style magazine is reporting that K-Fed's lawyer is at court today to allege that Britney Spears was driving without a license over the weekend while her children were in the car which, according to TMZ, is illegal even if she has a valid driver's license from another state since she lives here with her children. I actually found this out the hard way earlier this summer when I applied for a CA driver's license. You're supposed to get your Cali license within 30 days after you move to the state. Blah ... I hope this doesn't turn out to be another week of new legal woes for Britney ... she was having such a good week last week.

In happy, non illegal news, a few cast members from the amazing NBC show Heroes convened at Jillian's at Universal City to participate in the Elevate Hope Foundation's Bowling For The Arts Celebrity Games 2007. Here are a few pics of the really overdressed Hayden Panettiere, seemingly overbearing Kristen Bell, really hawt Zachary Quinto and the dude who plays Hayden's dad on the show enjoying some good ol' American fun for a great cause:

You can just tell by those huge smiles that all the cast members, old and new, really enjoy one another's company. I'm sure that Hayden just LOOOOOOOOVES sharing the spotlight with Heroes newcomer Kristen at [Source]

Lindsay Lohan, who continues her stay in rehab in Utah, spent a little time off campus yesterday with some of her fellow rehabbers. Apparently, L. Lo usually attends church services on Sundays but decided yesterday that she wanted to step out for a little R&R ... at AA:

Dina Lohan insists that there is no set release date from Lindsay's rehab program and for once, I agree with Dina that that is a great idea. The longer that Lindsay stays away from all the temptations of Hollywood and NYC the better her chances at succeeding. [Source]

Pink reader Jamie ran into P!nk at Whaler Bar and Grill in Venice, CA last night singing a bit of karaoke with her husband Carey Hart and their friend Lisa Marie Presley ... here are a few pics:

It would seem that rumors of P!nk and Carey's break-up have been greatly exaggerated. It sounds like the pair had a great night out last night together. These two seem so well-suited for one another, I'm glad to know that things are still well with them. [thanks Jamie]

In other couples news, for some unknown reason, Pamela Anderson has applied for and was granted a marriage license to marry her boyfriend of about 3 minutes Rick Solomon. You may recall that Rick was the genius who not only filmed his sexcapades with Paris Hilton but provided the on-camera play-by-play DVD commentary as well -- classy. Pamela must really love getting married ... she recently married her last husband, Kid Rock, 4 times in the span of about 2 months (only to divorce him 4 months later) ... I wonder how many times she plans to marry Rick? Here are pics from an impromptu party in Malibu to either celebrate their impending nuptials or to celebrate their maybe already secret marriage:

The former Baywatch star and Rick Salomon – Paris Hilton's former boyfriend who made and distributed the infamous One Night In Paris explicit video – are planning to get married. They have applied for – and were granted – a marriage license in Las Vegas on the weekend. Anderson – who has been performing with magician Hans Klok at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino – and Salomon, 38, have been inseparable lately. A source said: "Rick is always with her. He's backstage when she does her show all the time." The pair, who headed back to Los Angeles Saturday night, have been staying at Anderson's Malibu beach house. The former Baywatch star, 40, had previously revealed on a US chat show that she was engaged but did not say who her other half was, except that he was a poker player, which is one of Salomon's pursuits. I, for one, commend Pamela Anderson for honoring and respecting the sanctity of marriage. If she isn't the poster child for way that marriage should be, then I don't know who is. [Source]

Here are a couple cute pics of Kylie Minogue with her gay BFF and stylist William Baker out for a night of theater in London as the pair were photographed leaving the musical Bad Girls at the Garrick Theater over the weekend:

See ... what does Kylie need with a new boyfriend when all she needs is her gay bestie. Boyfriends may come and go for Kyles but I doubt Will Baker will ever be gone from her life :) [Source]

Pink reader Marci sends in these great exterior shots from her neighborhood in Chicago, IL where filmmakers were shooting new scenes for the new Batman sequel The Dark Knight over the weekend:

I love the Joker graffiti and it looks like the Apollo Ornamental Iron Works will be featured in the movie. Marci reveals that Christian Bale was seen in the area the day before she took these pics. News has been a bit quiet on the Dark Knight front in the past few weeks ... I had thought that filming had wrapped. It's great to know that filming is still full speed ahead on this much-anticipated Batman sequel. [thanks Marci]

Poor Paris Hilton ... the little lamb was all excited to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman last Friday night to talk about all the new projects in her life when that meanie, David Letterman, started asking her about her stint in jail ... things got really uncomfortable for Paris from that point on ... as you can tell from these screen caps from their interview:

I'm just amazed that Paris Hilton, technically a grown woman, thinks that jutting out her pouty lip would garner her some sympathy from mean ol' Dave. It's almost sad. In case you missed watching Paris squirm in the hot seat on The Late Show you can click HERE to check it out for yourself ... over and over and over again. [Source]

Here are a couple really great new photos of Heroes baddie Zachary Quinto from a recent photoshoot he appeared in:

Ah Zach ... he's come a long way from never being noticed as Tori Spelling's gay BFF on her VH1 show So noTORIous to becoming one of the funnest, creepiest, most interesting villains on TV right now. I guess it helps that he's hawt too :) [thanks Deb]

Speaking of hawt, Nicole Richie is featured on the cover and in the pages of the Fall issue of Citizen K magazine ... here are a few of her amazing pics:

Clearly, these pics were taken a while ago since she's baby bumpless ... but she looks really great in every pic. I really love Nicole's sense of style, tho I could do without all those gypsy headbands that she loves to wear. Nonetheless, she looks amazing in these pics ... love them! [Source]

Here are the new promo pics for the upcoming new season of Desperate Housewives featuring the usual suspects and this year's new addition, Dana Delaney:

It's clear that the ladies each have their own issues to deal with this season. As a casual fan of the show (ie. I only watch it occasionally) I must admit that I'm intrigued with the way things are going on the show ... especially with Linnette. I may have to pay closer attention this season to see how everything goes down. [Source]

I was one of the "chosen" folks that the Spice Girls deemed worthy enough to purchase tickets for their upcoming Reunion World Tour ... here is a bit of the email that I received over the weekend:

The presale began this morning at 10AM PT and I managed to get 2 sets of tickets for both the December 5th and 7th LA shows. I don't know why but now I'll all excited for the show again. Yeah, yeah ... I know the girls women are gonna lip-sync their hearts out but I don't care ... I'm anxious to see if they can pull off a successful show live and in person. [Source]

And finally, here is a little game for all y'all ... can you guess which female celeb seems to have forgotten to manscape her chin before going out in public?

Click above to find out who it is

Yeah ... I was pretty shocked when I found out who it was ... but I think you're gonna Love finding out who she is. [Source]

Les News:
After a few late nights in a row last week/weekend I decided to stay in yesterday ... thankfully, I discovered the entire first season of Dexter on Showtime On Demand because that's how I spent my entire day. I cannot believe that I've waited this long to watch this amazing show!

I have always contended that watching an entire series all at once, without commercial interruption, is the best way to fall in love with a show. Watching Dexter in this way did it for me. I had no idea that Julie Benz (ex-Darla on Buffy and Angel) had such a big part in the show. I never really cared for her on Buffy/Angel but I love her on Dexter. And speaking of love, Michael C. Hall is so dreamy ... and creepy. I'm so hooked on this show ... I'm glad I finally found it. People, why has no one told me how amazing the show is? I spent this morning watching the season premiere of the new season of Dexter and ... OMG ... I want more. This is deffo gonna be on my Must Watch List this TV season.

No big plans for today ... I guess we'll see where the week takes me. I'm out.
