Britney and Howie Collide in Rehab


Promises, promises: Britney Spears changes boyfriends about as often as hair-dos and dont’s. Apparently she is dating Howie Day after meeting the musician in rehab. Note to Howie: Make sure she wears her panties when you two go out and steer clear of Paris Hilton if you can.

Can you imagine group at Promises with a who’s who of celebs?

I hope Howie likes the Lakers otherwise he could be on his way out already.

Britney is reportedly taking Howie to her cousin’s wedding on June 2. Might be one hot karaoke night.

Project Runway Trainwreck!


TMZ is reporting that the new season of Project Runway is headed toward trouble.  Oh, where is Super Designer Tim Gunn when you really need him?

Sources tell TMZ that auditions held this weekend at the downtown Standard Hotel had a record low turnout. We’re told that since lines were not very long, production staff members were “scrambling” to contact more up-and-coming designers to show up. In the words of the incomparable Tim Gunn, “Make it work!” Perhaps the fear of being ‘auf’ed’ by Season 3 winner Jeffrey Sebelia, who was a judge during this weekend’s session, kept all the wannabe Donatellas and Gallianos away!

Despite the fashion hiccup in Los Angeles, the new season of the fashion forward reality show is scheduled to premiere this summer on Bravo.

Michelle Branch Busts Stalker


Michelle Branch — the chick who had a couple of hits a couple years back and who recently reinvented herself as a country artist with her band, The Wreckers — halted a concert to point out that her stalker was in the audience . Security took over from that point, and the stalker was taken into custody.

“Michelle Branch just said, ‘Wait a second. There’s a guy in the audience – striped shirt and glasses – can somebody check him out?’ ” audience member Cali Haas, 20, of Sheboygan, tells the Associated Press. “It left everyone just so confused, like, ‘Is this a joke, part of the show?’ ” Haas added.

But it was not part of the concert. Dominick Giordano, 32, of Maryland, was cited for disorderly conduct after staff members at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts stopped him as he tried to escape on Monday, according to police.

O.D. of Anna Nicole


According to Broward County Medical Examiner Joshua Perper, Anna Nicole Smith’s death was a result of an “accidental overdose” and that foul play is not being considered.

“Nine prescription drugs including anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs and the sedative chloral hydrate were found in Anna Nicole’s blood…On the day of her arrival in Florida on February 5, she complained of chills and was later found to be running a fever at 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.5 Celsius) caused by the perforation in an abscess in her left buttock, he said. “It is our determination that the cause of death is combined drug toxicity as a result of chloral hydrate and a therapeutic concentration of other medications,” said Perper. “A bacterial infection, a viral intestinal infection and possibly flu were contributory causes of death …. We did not find any evidence of homicide…”

Among the list of drugs Anna Nicole Smith took in the days leading up to her death was a growth hormone, making it the third weight loss product Smith had taken during her reign as TRIMSPA spokesperson. In addition, the Broward County Medical Examiner also released a description of the contents of Anna’s hotel room at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino, in which Seminole detectives found Slim-Fast on her night table.

Fergie Goes Orange


‘Does anyone else find it odd that Josh Duhamel is still dating Fergie? He seems like a normal, handsome Hollywood actor who should be dating someone like Reese Witherspoon or Katharine McPhee. But no — he’s dating a strange combination of an orangutan and a Mack Truck. She’s all orange and pink! She looks like some Fruit Stripe gum that’s been chewed up and spit out.

“Bring out the bucket, bring out the cloth, bring out the liquid, bring out the lot, if not, lets roll her to a carwash

50 Kinda Interesting Things About Simon Cowell


Most of America knows him as the smug, heartless American Idol  judge who destroys dreams and bickers with Ryan Seacrest. But there’s much more to Simon Cowell than self-promotion and too-tight t-shirts — he’s a savvy businessman who knows how to expertly play the game.  In a quest to learn more about the $100 million man, Radar Online searched far and wide to find 50 interesting facts about Simon.  

Here are a couple to pique your interest:

  • Simon was once approached by a man who said he would pay six figures to have Cowell judge him and his wife in bed. He refused—which he says he regrets.
  • His many part-time jobs include car cleaner, baby-sitter, caroler, waiter at Elton John’s London restaurant, and film set gopher.
  • Cowell has forbidden girlfriend Terri Seymour from asking him questions after 11 p.m. and suggested she get her boobs enlarged.
