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.

Here’s the letter:

“Congratulations on catching America’s ears…and eyes. Over the past month, you’ve wowed the world with your original performances. And, your ever-changing hairdos have made you almost as famous as KFC® Original Recipe® Chicken and Colonel Sanders himself.

On behalf of Kentucky Fried Chicken®, I want to serve up to you a tasty offer. If you don a bowl hairdo during one of your next nationally televised performances, KFC will grant you a free lifetime supply of KFC Famous Bowls®. We’re sure America will be as ‘bowled-over’ by your take on this classic look as they are by our KFC Famous Bowls.

From wavy to Mohawk to now the classic bowl – who knows, your bowl cut could start a trend as big as KFC Famous Bowls, which consumers ranked as THE most memorable new product of 2006.

In addition to free KFC Famous Bowls for life – if you sport a bowl cut, KFC will cut a check in your name to Colonel’s Scholars, a charity providing young people with much needed college scholarships. We’re confident that helping students afford college is something that even the toughest of judges would stand and applaud.” – Your Fan, Gregg Dedrick, President of KFC.

In addition to the poultry perks, KFC will also make a contribution in Sanjy’s name to Colonel Scholars, a charity that provides young people with college scholarships.
