The True Story Of 6 Strangers

Welp, it appears that our dear Britney Spears is still a wee bit off kilter today (as if one day we'll awaken to the news that she's "all better" and "back to normal") so I guess it's just best, at this point, to just try and keep track of what's going on with the erratic lass as best we can. There seems to be new development every day ... well, maybe not development exactly, but there is always something else to talk about when it comes to Brit Brit. It's been a little over a week since Britney's infamous 2008 Meltdown and new details are starting to emerge concerning what exactly went down on that fateful night from law enforcement and EMT personnel responding to ... er, the incident. Here are a couple new pictures of Britney rockin' her fave pink wig yesterday and a report from TMZ chronicling the profanity-laced exchange that the emergency folks encountered when they arrived at Chez Spears in Studio City on the night of January 3:

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ about the craziness in Britney's house the night she was committed. It involves profanity, nudity, drugs and wild mood swings. Sources say when the cops showed up, Britney was locked in the master bathroom with Jayden James. Officers saw Britney from the backyard holding Jayden, who did not appear to be upset. Britney refused to come out for nearly three hours. When she did, all she was wearing was panties. Britney was incoherent, screaming at the cops, "What the f*** are you doing in my house? I know who you are." She continued ranting, "I don't need your f***ing help." At one point Britney, whose moods swung wildly from laughter to rage to sobs, hollered, "You will do as I say." At some point Britney put on a see-through nightgown. Before police took her outside, they wanted to cover her with a sweater, and she screamed, "Don't cover me up. I'm f***ing hot." Britney's assistant and nanny were present during the standoff. At one point the assistant told the police that Britney had been "popping pills" all day. Her code for medication was "vitamins" and she repeatedly demanded, "Get me my vitamins!" Officers found a bottle of Prozac in her bedroom. Sam Lutfi arrived and told officers that he and the others around Britney "knew this was coming for a long time," but didn't know how bad it would be. The assistant also told cops that earlier in the day, Britney showed no concern about attending her deposition and would not heed her warnings to show up on time. Sam told law enforcement that Britney had been extremely unstable and had recently purchased a house in Malibu on a whim, began moving furniture in and then changed her mind. As for Jayden James, the reason cops took him to the hospital was because there was a small bruise on his leg. Britney insisted the bruise occurred on Kevin's watch. Police took Jayden to Cedars as a precautionary measure. We're told police will testify about the insanity at Monday's custody hearing.

Uhhhh ... I don't think that Monday's hearing is going to go very well if this sort of testimony is going to be introduced in open court. At this point, who know if Britney will even bother to show up for the hearing ... it seems obvs that she will absolutely lose ALL chance of custody/visitation/whathaveyou if she does not show up in court to plead her case (as weak as it may be). As if this weren't bad enough, it is also being reported that the LAPD has filed a criminal report over the January 3 incident:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the LAPD wrote up a crime report in connection with last week's standoff at Brit's home. Sources say cops wrote a Child Endangering Report which is now under lock and key at the LAPD. Sources say this is a preliminary investigation report, meaning the LAPD can conduct further inquiry and possibly even arrest Spears if they determine a crime was committed. We're told the report was written because of all of the events at the house -- including locking herself in the bathroom with Jayden and violating the custody order. We're told it's unlikely the LAPD will arrest Brit since the custody court is all over the matter.

I guess thank the Gods for small miracles. The dust has barely begun to settle from that crazy incident and then we had to contend with Britney and her creepy photog boyfriend fleeing the country only to have them re-emerge back in SoCal to get back to doing whatever it is that they like to do together ... all mere days before she is scheduled to appear in court to try and convince a judge that she is worthy of caring for her children again. Yeah. No. We are still a very long way away from anything like that becoming a reality. [Source]

In further bizarre behavior, Britney took her leechy parasitic male companion, Adnan Ghalib, to a car dealership to look at new cars ... while she wore her old wedding dress from her marriage to Kevin Federline in late 2004:

This isn't the gown she wore when she took her, then sacred, vows but it is the dress that she changed into immediately after the actual service which she wore for the rest of the night thruout the reception. I guess the good news is that she can still fit into it, yes? Oh and the latest rumor going around is that Adnan has moved in with Britney. Perfect. [Source]

In happy news, we all heard that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden became proud parents to a bouncing baby girl named Harlow Winter Kate Madden late yesterday afternoon:

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have welcomed a baby girl, her rep tells Harlow Winter Kate Madden was born Friday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. She weighed 6 lbs., 7 oz. A pal was spotted walking into her room with a giant bundle of pink and white balloons, flowers and a stuffed black and white horse. As reported exclusively, she arrived at the hospital late Thursday. Her parents arrived Friday as she went into labor. Madden's brother Benji and his girlfriend Sophie Monk were also at the hospital.

This morning, Joel Madden spoke to People magazine about how he and Nicole are feeling since the birth of their baby girl:

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden greeted the arrival of their daughter with joy and thanks. "We are very blessed she's healthy and beautiful and so good already," Madden told PEOPLE on Saturday. "We are very happy."

I am so thrilled for the both of them ... well, for the three of them. I am confident that Nic/Joel are going to be amazing parents and I can't *wait* to see little Harlow Winter out and about with her proud mommy and daddy. [Source, Source]

Incidentally, it is still unclear whether or not Xtina Aguilera actually gave birth as well yesterday or not. Both Life & Style magazine and E! News are reporting that she did but US Weekly got word from Xtina's rep that she did not give birth (she isn't even in labor yet). What we do know is that Courtney Thorne-Smith and David Allen Grier both welcomed new babies into their family's yesterday so Friday really was baby-poppin' day!

OJ Simpson has been rearrested and taken into custody in Las Vegas for bail violation ... he was cuffed and shipped off to jail yesterday:

O.J. Simpson was in jail Saturday, accused of violating terms of his bail in an armed robbery case, after a bondsman told authorities the former football star tried to get him to pass a message to a co-defendant. Simpson was awaiting a Wednesday court hearing, when prosecutors planned to request that Simpson's bail be revoked and he be kept in jail until trial, set for April. The 60-year-old arrived in Las Vegas on Friday on a commercial flight from Florida with his bail bondsman, Miguel Pereira. He was taken in handcuffs by a police escort to the Clark County Detention Center. Pereira said he was unhappy because he had not been paid for handling Simpson's bail, and that he gave prosecutors a message Simpson wanted him to take to a co-defendant because he didn't want to face criminal charges. "He left a message instructing me to do something violating a court order," the bondsman told The Associated Press after escorting Simpson from his home in Miami. "I don't want to get involved in such a dilemma or a criminal act." Simpson's attorney denied the allegations.

Whatevs ... I'm convinced he did it. I'm convinced he did everything that he's ever been accused and or tried for and I'm really looking forward to the day when he is thrown behind bars for years and years to come. [Source]

Sooooo ... the divorce between Pamela Anderson and Rick Solomon is still moving forward ... and she may or may not be pregs with his baby ... and they're still hanging out together as if nothing were wrong?

Ok ... so by the looks of this photo they don't really look like they're "hanging out" ... it looks more like Rick is doing all of Pammy Pie's bitch-work to try and stay in her good graces ... as long as he does so 10 paces behind her. Maybe reconciliation really is in the works. [Source]

Boo! There is new word via Lauren LC Conrad herself that my girl Kristin Cavallari will not be joining the cast of The Hills this year :( BUT, that doesn't mean that KC is gonna stop her take-over of Hollywood. Here is a cute pic of Kristin with a car full of friends as they hit the town this week:

I ain't gonna lie ... I was really, really looking forward to the new dynamic that KC would've brought to a new season of The Hills and I'm really bummed that it may not actually happen. Perhaps KC will land her own Hills-type show or something like that. All I know is that we've been SEVERLY lacking the Kristin-ness around Hollywood ... I think we're due, damnit! [Source]

OMG, I CAN'T HELP MYSELF! More pictures from the set of the new Sex and the City movie keep coming out and I cannot help but look ... and thankfully, I did because here is a new pic of Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones lurvin' up on Jason Lewis as Smith Jarrod on the SATC movie set in Malibu this week:

OH NO! Poor Pete Wentz got himself pulled over by a cop and was issued a ticket this week. The poor kid looks like he's about to cry:

Yeah, I think that crying bit only really works for girls, Petey. Better luck next time. [Source]

Gisele Bundchen and her MASSIVELY long legs are featured in the new Versace ad campaign ... here are 2 of her stunning new photos:

That woman has got legs FOR DAYS! As far as supermodels go ... she is really one of the best. So hot. [Source]

And finally ... it's time for this week's batch of photos sent in by Pink is the new Blog readers -- Maria and co. from Kansas City send in a pic from their friend Kelli's 30th birthday Happy Hour party -- Karrie sends in a pic from her recent trip to India where she was able to pose for a pic in front of the amazing Taj Mahal -- Phillip sends in a pic with his sister and her hubby as they vacayed in Costa Rica recently -- Robyn, Melissa, and Lori who hail from Cleveland, OH send in a cute pic from their night with Barry Manilow -- Bianca sends in a picture of the closing cast of the original Block Party Bash parade at Disney's California Adventure (which was taken on the last day of the parade on 01/06/08) which will be relocating to Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios in Florida:

Thank you all for another batch of amazing photos ... I love them all, y'all look great and I hope the fun pics keep rollin' in.

Here is one last special Pink reader photo submission -- Stephanie has a question for Justin which she wants to ask via this pic:

I hope he says yes and I hope to see a pic of the two of you at your Senior Formal dance :)

Les News:
Yesterday was a pretty freakin' cool day. I got to spend a couple of hours hanging out at The Real World: Hollywood house where I got a full tour and was able to sit down and talk with 6 of the 7 cast members of the show. Officially, the 7th member Greg (who was chosen for the cast via voters) was not able to make press day yesterday because he had to catch a flight back home to "get back to college" but there are reports on other blogs that he was kicked off the show after he got fired from the job the Real Worlders had to take on this season. But I did get to spend some time with the other cast members -- Brianna, Dave, Joey, Kimberly, Sara and Will, who hails from DETROIT ROCK CITY, Y'ALL! I was very happy to learn that Will will be reppin' our hometown on the 20th season of The Real World. I posted a few pics from my visit to my online photo album at and will post a few more of them right here on the blog when the new season airs (sometime this Spring) ... BUT, I do want to post a pic of me in the Confessional Chair right now:

I'll also be posting new info from the cast about the house, their experience taping the show and a bunch of other stuff with those other pictures closer to new season's debut on MTV.

Incidentally, I know a few folks who registered for the photo album were having some difficulties ... after registration you should've received an email with a link to the album giving you access to the pics. If you registered and didn't get the link, lemme know and I'll try and get that sorted out for you.

After my afternoon with the Real Worlders, I got a last minute invite from Darion to spend the night with him and Kathy Griffin at the Kodak Theater for the second of the 3 sold out nights there. I was feeling a bit wrecked but I couldn't turn down Kathy. I am so glad I went ... it was, by far, the funnest stand-up routine of hers I've ever seen. She had so much material to work with (she got the party started with Britney and went from there) but she did a masterful job of bringin' the major funny :)

I got to meet a few Pink readers at last night's show ... I have to give a shout-out to Hannah and Louise and I have to send out LOTS OF BIRTHDAY LURVE to Brett who was celebratin' his birthday last night with Kathy!!

Tonight The GangTM are convening for dinner and a movie and I'm really excited to see them all together again.

Oh and I slept in really late today and I loved it! Sleeping = getting better faster so ... yay!

That is all ... have a great weekend, y'all. I'm out.
