To add more scandal to the Britney Spears saga, various Internet gambling sites are now betting on who will be the next daddy to a Britney bubba, TMZ reports.
Apparently, Spears' former flame Isaac Cohen tops the pops, while Spears' soon-to-be FedEx Kevin Federline comes in at a close second.
Playboy's Hugh Hefner and President George W. Bush also make the cut, while pink-haired "queen of all media" Perez Hilton and Mel Gibson are at odds for a long shot.
In another Britney bulletin, it turns out that reports claiming that Federline will pocket 19 million of Britney’s fortune are false.
Due to the drafting of a deft pre-nup agreement by lawyer Laura Wesser, the former backup dancer will boogie away with a mere million, according to TMZ.
BritneyBack: Did Timberlake Write Loving Letter to Spears?
Justin Timberlake has reportedly caused Britney Spears to “Cry Him a River” after sending her a soulful letter of love.
A Spears source reportedly told Life & Style magazine that JT offered to be there for the depressed diva, moving Brit to tears.
"She could barely catch her breath to read the words,” the source said. “He poured his heart out. He told her he was sorry they fell in love so young, because if they'd fallen in love even just a few years later, he would've married her — and they'd probably have kids together by now.”
Timberlake also reportedly used their childhood nicknames for each other in the letter: Pinky and Stinky.
Gisele Groans: No Bundchen-Brady Babies
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen says she does not have a baby on the way.
The rumor mill reported earlier this month that the Victoria’s Secret Angel was pregnant with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s child, but Bundchen says it's not true.
Brady's ex-girlfriend, Bridget Moynahan, is currently pregnant with his child.
"It's crazy how people can make up these stories," Gisele griped on Spanish TV show "Corazon de Primavera." "I'm not pregnant and I'm not planning to be pregnant anytime soon. I have so many contracts to do, so many projects."
But Bundchen still plans a promotion from supermodel to supermom someday.
"It's just something I don't want now — it's something for the future," she said. "I'm 26 years old, for Christ's sake! Why would I have a baby now?"
Nicole Richie Goes Hypo
Apparently, Nicole Richie’s recent health hardships and patches of passing out have nothing to do with her fading frame.
Instead, Richie’s rep told People magazine that the Tinseltown tiny has now been “taking steps to manage” a diagnosis of hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar levels.
Richie has had two collapses this month on the “Simple Life” set, leaving a reportedly peeved Paris Hilton to counsel kids at a health camp alone for the fifth season of the reality show.
Meanwhile, Richie will go from camera to courtroom on April 2, where she faces misdemeanor drunk-driving charges stemming from a December arrest in Los Angeles. Richie pleaded not guilty in February.
Another Night in Paris? Not Happening
Hollywood heiress Paris Hilton hit headlines in 2004 with the release of her infamous sex tape “One Night in Paris,” but reps deny that a reported sequel to the sex scandal has fallen into the tabloid tank.
Web site MediaTakeOut.com claims to have a tape of Hilton and Gnarls Barkley's Cee-lo in a romantic romp, and as a teaser on Wednesday posted a pic of Paris kneeling in front of a naked man, believed to be Cee-lo.
But the image was soon removed after Paris’ posse threatened legal action.
“The altered photograph and accompanying story are patently false,” wrote Hilton’s lawyer Gregory Gabriel in a letter to the site.
Even without lights and a camera, sex scandals still seem to have action in Paris’ not-so “Simple Life."
The socialite and Stavros Niarchos are said to have split yet again this week, amid reports that Stavros may have been two-timing.
According to Star magazine, the Greek shipping heir was scooped getting down and dirty on March 11 with supermodel Veronika Varekova during the weekly karaoke jam at Tony Cipriani in NYC.
“Someone suggested they get a room,” a source told the mag.
Did Tom Curb Katie's Shopping Freedom?
“Katie looks like she has been moping about having to curtail her shopping sprees. She said Tom wants her to take a break as he thinks it might be sending out the wrong message,” a source told Britain’s Grazia magazine. “He just doesn't want people thinking she is frivolous and all about shopping and money.”
Holmes has apparently been on a spender bender for quite some time now, and has been busted bagging it out in Beverly Hills with best bud Victoria Beckham.
Luckily, Katie can cry on the shoulder of the former Spice Girl, as reports indicate that “Top Gun” Tom is controlling his young wife’s every move.
"Katie has been crying over the phone," an insider told Us Weekly. "She's frustrated. Tom is denying her every single thing. Once, Katie and Victoria talked on the phone for four hours."
Wonder if Tom will have something to say about the phone bill…
Olsens Shop for 'Full House' of Food
Freaky fashionistas Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen hit up a West Hollywood grocery store last week, filling their trolley with, ahem, food.
While Ashley hid behind a bouquet of flowers, her teeny twin looked set to star as a homeless heroine in a Halloween horror by sporting skinny jeans, scarlet stilettos, super-white hair and a somber face.
The ghost-like glamour girl used her magic to virtually become invisible again this week. Hiding behind her hoodie in Hollywood, MK almost disappeared behind a parking meter.
Perhaps the peroxide princess was frightened by her own blindingly blonde reflection, because she flew into Neil George Salon and emerged with slightly more ash-like locks.
Dina Lohan Fears Diana-Like Death for Daughter
Dina Lohan, mother of wild child Lindsay, has expressed concern that her paparazzi-popular daughter might be the next victim of a car chase death, similar to that of Princess Diana in 1997.
Dina discussed Li-Lo’s numerous run-ins with celebrity photographers in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar, declaring that "Diana will happen again."
The 44-year-old also admitted that she is more like a sister than a mom to the screen starlet, happily dancing, drinking and designer dressing with her DJ daughter.
Dina also mentioned the public’s preoccupation with pantyless partiers Paris and Britney.
“Some of these kids are just lost,” she told the mag. “Paris is a really smart girl, and she's come really far.”
As for Spears, Lohan is urging the public to “Li-Lo” on this “kid.”
"The girl is a beautiful kid. She married some guy just to get out of the limelight. Cut her some slack," she said.
Although the leading Lohan is caught in the “Parent Trap” of denying that her daughter is an alcoholic, Linds has bought some canine companions in a stunt to stay sober.
'I've bought two puppies. One is a Jack Russell terrier I've named Brooklyn. He's white and black like Chanel. And I've got a Yorkie named Dakota, like my movie name and my little bro,” the 20-year-old told GQ magazine. “Sober impulse buying of companions will help me stay home."
Did Lindsay Lohan Parade Her Privates?
Someone might need to tell Lindsay Lohan that if you flash your private parts enough, they become public parts.
The 20-year-old actress, whose purported nether regions have been posted on the Web before, was photographed at New York’s club Plumm last Thursday hitching up her dress to give partygoers a peek, according to thesuperficial.com.
It seems as though Lohan was doing nothing to “Li-Lo” during her stay in New York, giving the Big Apple a dose of “Freaky Friday” when she stepped out of her hotel braless with an unbuttoned blouse.
The supposedly "reformed" rehabber not only likes to flash flesh, but she still likes to guzzle the grog, according to reports.
The New York Daily News reported that over the weekend, Lohan polished off three glasses of champagne at Unik’s weekly karaoke party.
"Lindsay is still going to [AA] meetings. It's a slow process,” a spokesperson for the perennial party girl told the paper. “It's a day-to-day thing."
The starlet also rejected a romantic reunion with ex Wilmer Valderrama, who sang Matchbox 20's “Back to Good” especially for her.
"It's too late!" one of Li-Lo’s gal pals reportedly retorted.
Nicole Richie Collapses. Again.
Super-skinny starlet Nicole Richie has reportedly had a repeat performance of passing out.
The Tinseltown tiny was hospitalized earlier this month after collapsing on the “Simple Life” set due to dehydration.
But Richie has created a sequel of her own, with the New York Daily News reporting that she collapsed on location in Malibu last Wednesday.
"She was taken to her trailer immediately," a snitch said to the paper. "But she came around, so the crew didn't call an ambulance. She spent the rest of the day in her trailer and left Paris [co-star Hilton] to complete the day's filming."
Match Point: Johansson and Woody?
Never mind Josh and Justin, Scarlett Johansson is jiving with an older fella.
In the April issue of Vogue, sultry screen siren Scarlett has 'fessed up to her fondness of film legend Woody Allen.
"I'd sew the hems of his pants if he asked me to," the 22-year-old told the magazine.
Allen returns the affection, affirming Johansson as “criminally sexy."
Though the pair shares passion on a professional basis only, Scarlett works hard not to leak her love life.
"I'd rather not comment on my personal life in that way," the actress responded when questioned about her former flame, Josh Harnett.
But the “Scoop” star did dish on Justin Timberlake.
"We had fun together, but it's not like the first time I've ever hung out with him," she said. "I think this happens because we're both single and in the spotlight, and obviously Justin's a very high-profile person."
Miss USA Tara Conner: I'd Be Dead Without The Donald
Appearing on “Last Call with Carson Daly” on Friday, the sash star said that she’d still “be using” if it weren’t for the Miss USA pageant owner's decision to give her a second chance after she was caught drinking underage in New York City bars.
"I'd probably still be using," Conner confessed. "I could be dead or in jail. I'm grateful."
While there is no Playboy posing in her post-pageant plans, Conner revealed on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that she would like to do some motivational speaking or write a book.
Meanwhile, the Miss USA pageant gears up to name a new queen this week in a live televised competition that organizers say will spotlight how Conner nearly lost her crown and ended up in rehab.
"Certainly, our reigning Miss USA is going to be on television and we're certainly not going to shy away from referring to what happened," executive producer Phil Gurin told The Associated Press on Monday. "Why shy away from what's part of our family? We embrace our family."
While not a centerpiece of the show, Conner will be "all over our telecast," Gurin said.
The 56th annual pageant will be broadcast Friday on NBC from the Kodak Theatre with Nancy O'Dell of "Access Hollywood" as host.
Gurin said viewers will be able to see Conner and "make their own determinations by seeing how she presents herself, what she has to say about what happened this past year ... and that's something we've never been able to do before."
And, Gurin conceded, the controversy may draw more viewers to the show.
"Anytime there's something that stirs up the pot, certainly more eyeballs are going to come to watch," he said.
Can Justin Bring BritneyBack?
Is Justin Timberlake the only one who can bring BritneyBack?
Spears is desperate for a Hollywood hookup with JT, and reportedly hides in her closet to speak to him, according to Star magazine.
Meanwhile, music-maker Timbaland told Entertainment Weekly magazine that Justin has agreed to collaborate on a song with Spears after she recovers from rehab.
One person who won’t be in favor of a career comeback is Brit’s "favorite" aunt Chanda McGovern, who believes the pop princess just needs some Southern comfort.
“Britney has to sort her priorities out and quickly, before it is too late, otherwise she may end up dead,” McGovern told the U.K’s Daily Star.
“She needs to come on home to Louisiana, where people love Britney for Britney and where they see past all of her fame and celebrity. Out in California, she can’t go to the shops, the cinema or a restaurant without a camera in her face, or people watching her every move. She needs to bring her two sons back to Kentwood, where she can get all the love and support she needs. It would give her the chance to breathe some fresh air and take her time to discover herself again.”
Justin Timberlake's 'Exes' Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel Team Up
The reported former flames of Justin Timberlake, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel, have become friends in France.
Despite the fact that JT was rumored to be romancing both beauties at once earlier this year, the screen starlets were spotted smiling on a shopping spree together in Paris.
Could Timberlake have been the topic of their tittering?
The glamour girls headed to the City of Lights for Fashion Week, and for Biel’s 25th birthday bash.
DJ Lindsay Lohan Abuses Plumm Partiers
Lindsay Lohan went back to her “Mean Girl” roots last Thursday at Manhattan club Plumm when she flipped out at the snap-happy crowd.
Lohan turned off the music and reportedly hurled obscenities, threatening to leave if another flashbulb went off.
Fans obeyed the commands of the “Teenage Drama Queen," as the rest of her DJ set ran smoothly.
Even if Lindsay didn’t stampede out the door as growled, she would have had her eye on it the whole night.
Insiders involved with the gig told TMZ that the 20-year-old reformed rehabber gave bouncers a photograph of her father Michael Lohan, who was released from prison last week, and demanded extra security to ensure he didn’t crash the club.
However, a spokesperson for Lohan “knew nothing” of the situation.
Meanwhile, Michael Lohan plans to reconcile with his daughter on the silver screen.
According to producer Brett Hudson, Michael wants to pitch an idea for Lindsay, Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson to be dumped on a desert island with their daddies.
"Michael is very creative. You can see where Lindsay got her drive and her talent,” the Post Chronicle reported Hudson as saying.
As for Lohan and Jude Law? Life & Style magazine reports that Lindsay flew to the Big Apple to spend time with the actor.
"(Jude and Lindsay) are still very much in touch, talking and e-mailing. It probably won't turn into anything serious, but it's definitely not over,” a "friend" told the publication.
Tara Reid a Restaurateur
Tara Reid wants to go from “American Pie” to “Ketchup."
The perennial party girl is already an investor in three trendy restaurants, but can feel her business blood boiling as she plans to open a fast-food diner called “Ketchup” in L.A.
Reid might even butter your bun.
"You probably won't see me behind the cash register, but I'll definitely be in the kitchen making sure everything is done right," Reid told In Touch magazine.
Britney Spears Wants Your Help
You can help depressed diva Britney Spears get back “In The Zone” of success.
On her official Web site, britneyspears.com, the songstress has posted a plea for “thoughts and inspiration” to be sent via e-mail.
But be warned, site moderators will only publish positive letters.
Meanwhile, joining the herd of Hollywood addicts, Spears is reportedly suffering from Coca-Cola abuse.
According to Star magazine, the former face of Pepsi apparently keeps abuzz by downing 24 cans daily.
Perhaps all the sugar and caffeine has turned Brit into a baby with bad attitude at “Promises."
“She's been very demanding — acts like a 12-year-old and throws temper tantrums when she doesn't get what she wants,” a source told the magazine.
“She refuses to pick up after herself and even asked if she could hire a maid! She's asking for this and that, special food, special everything ... and she's not that nice to anyone."
Pills + No Food = Skinny
Forget hardcore heroin, pill popping seems to have become the style for Hollywood Boulevard beauties.
According to In Touch Weekly, reformed heroin addict Nicole Richie has devoted her “Simple Life” to prescription painkillers.
Insiders say that the skinny starlet has been using Adderall, a powerful appetite suppressant used to treat people with Attention Deficit Disorder.
Reps for Richie denied such claims, but a close gal pal says she’s upped her dosage.
"She loves Adderall because she stays awake, and it makes her not want to eat," the insider told the mag. "And she takes it even more when she's filming."
But Richie isn’t alone as a reported devotee to drugs. It seems as though half of Hollywood is 'fessing up to their own weedy and wild ways.
US Weekly reminds us that Lohan admitted to drug use in Vanity Fair, while Fergie (the hip-hop artist) is open about her former crystal meth habit.
Justin Timberlake admitted to being a stoned singer when recording the album “Justified," George Clooney apparently “loved acid” at college and John Mayer reportedly even gave a Rolling Stone interview while puffing on a cannabis vaporizer.
Malibu, Calif. may only be 27 miles long, but it’s no wonder it houses 25 rehab residences.
