Soundbites: Sam Lufti

Sam Lufti talked to US Weekly in an attempt to smear Britney's parents, but he just comes off looking like a total ass. Read for yourself:

"Oh boy, her family is crazy! It's funny because that's what the doctors say when they meet the family. They always come back and say, 'You know, [her problems] are inherited, right? It's just so sad. It's shared equally from both of her parents. [I don't] trust anything that her family says? Not a g----n thing."

He states that this is "at least the fourth intervention" her family has staged (that's a GOOD thing, they care!). He said, "They show up to the house like hillbillies, texting me. I find out that they're outside, and they go, 'You better let me in the gate, you ass.' So I go, to Britney, 'Your parents are here, let them come in and yell at you and scream at you. If anything else goes on, I'll throw you in my car and take you out of here.' She said, 'OK, fine, baby.' I let them in. Instead of going to see how Britney is, they come bouncing through the doors. They scream at me, 'Why the f---k are you talking to Barbara Walters?' I swear to God that's all they were saying. The dad pushed me in the chest and said, 'Get the f-k out of here. The dad gave up and then the mom tried to talk to her, but Lynne was like, 'I gotta get my beauty sleep, I gotta get my nails done, I gotta do my hair.' It was just so sick. We made the mom stay." LIAR!!!

Sam states that Britney's condition is a "mixed state bipolar" (simultaneous mania and depression) which she has had for "roughly five years."

The Fight For Brit Brit

After an emergency court hearing today, Jamie Spears and his ex-wife Lynne Spears have been granted temporary conservatorship over their daughter, Britney, who is currently under psychiatric evaluation at an LA hospital. This potentially gives her parents, who are openly fighting with her "manager" Sam Lufti, the ability to restrict and limit Britney's visitors and the right to employ security guards to protect her. Her parents also have temporary custody over her financial assets, including the right to secure her residence, change the locks, and evict the people living there (that would be you, Sam). They also were granted the opportunity to prosecute any civil harassment restraining orders. The court confirmed that Sam is the "subject of a civil restraining order."

Sam's response, "I object to this. Britney is fully capable of handling her own finances. Her doctors are capable of handling her health care. You'd think in a time like this, the family would be at the hospital taking care of their daughter, rather than fighting for her money. How sad."

You'd think he'd be in the hospital, too, if he really was so passionate. Go Team Parents!

Househunting

Ben and Jen together? Miraculous! Here they are checking out potential homes in Venice, CA. I can't picture them outside of Brentwood...they, along with Reese Witherspoon, just embody Brentwood to me. Venice is embodied by Matt Stone (creator of South Park). Well, him and countless methheads playing the bongos. Just not the right spot for them.

Soundbites: Michelle Williams

"Please respect our need to grieve privately. My heart is broken. I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time, and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up in the best memories of him."

Rehab: Eva Mendes


Actress Eva Mendes is currently checked into Utah's Cirque Lodge. Her rep confirmed that she has been there for several weeks, but would not state what her addiction is. She said, "Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support. Out of respect for Eva's privacy, we do not wish to discuss further details."

Bump Watch: Nicole Kidman

Bumps, bumps, everywhere! Nicole Kidman lets her friend feel her baby bump while out shopping in Sydney.

Bump Watch: Halle

Halle Berry exits Barefoot Bar in West Hollywood, one of DON's favorite places to hang out with a glass of champagne on a Saturday afternoon. God, I can't wait for summer. Which in LA should be in like a month.

JT's Superbowl Ad for Pepsi

Spiderwick Premiere



Hayden Panetierre took her little brother, budding actor Jansen to the premiere of Spiderwick Chronicles last night. Neither is in the movie, but if there's an event, you know Hayden's gonna be there. Love the dress and shoes!

Bump Watch: Jessica Alba



So the premiere of The Eye was rescheduled for last night and I didn't bother trying to go again. Really I was only going the first time to see this little one and her bump (and to see if Cash Warren was attractive in person), but I was over it. She looks great though. I mean, her dress is a scrolldown mess, but her hair is hot as is her engagement ring.

On the Mend: Justin Chambers


Justin Chambers aka Dr. Karev checked into the same hospital as Brit Brit on Monday, but checked out yesterday. His rep states that it was for help with a sleep disorder.


Click here to see Katherine Heigl's concerned reaction when a paparazzi tells her he's in the hospital.

WTF: Kendra

The Girls Next Door went out without Hef, but with their hairstylist to party last night. Check out Kendra with her new bangs and ashy hair! And her dress is downright modest!
I hardly recognize her!


Wardrobe Change


After the premiere of their film Fool's Gold, Kate Hudson opted for an outfit change for the after party. Probably a better choice given those pesky Santa Ana's blowing up her skirt earlier in the night.

New 'Do


Thank God Renee Zellweger finally got the good sense to invest in some extensions. Here she is in Toronto filming a new romantic comedy Chilled in Miami.

Bonk Goes LC

Josh Kelley isn't the only celebrity to celebrate their birthday at Katsuya. Lauren Conrad rang in her 22nd with a bunch of girlfriends at the restaurant last night. The Hills cameras were there to catch it all. But it wasn’t all play for the reality TV star. Lo and Whitney were there (no sign of Brody) for sushi and to toast Lauren, who drank watermelon-cucumber mojitos. Looks like she had a few too many! The photos of LC and Lo exiting the car are upon arriving hom after partying at S Bar.


Old Navs Celebrates Their New Line



Old Navy held a party last night at Eyebeam Atelier in New York and they brought out the young and fashionable crowd. From Heroes, there was Kristen Bell and Hayden Panetierre. From Gossip Girl, Blake Lively and Chace Crawford (Kristen Bell is also the show's narrator). From One Tree Hill, Sophia Bush and from Ugly Betty, Becki Newton. What a glam squad.

Hot Couple of the Minute: Paris and Elisha






Paris Hilton has been doing a lot of making out lately; with both boys and girls. Most recently, it has been with friend and former co-star, Elisha Cuthbert. Last night the two were making out at New York’s Tenjune club on Tuesday.

Mommy and Me: Jen and Violet

Just another day in the life of Jennifer Garner and Violet Affleck. They were out running errands in Brentwood. She seems like a pretty happy baby, probably because she gets to spend so much time with her mom.

A Girl and Her Dog

Jessica Simpson take Daisy with her as she makes her way around New York. While her film Blonde Ambition went straight to DVD, she's hopeful her upcoming country album will be a hit.

Of All The Things I Don't Want to See...

...a film featuring a menage a trios between Javier Bardem, ScarJo, and Mothface is pretty high on the list. The Weinstein Company has picked up rights to Woody Allen's new flick titled Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The film follows two Americans vacationing in Barcelona, one of whom (ScarJo) gets involved with a man and his looney ex-wife (Bardem and Mothface).


Katie Holmes Likes Eating


Of all the ridiculous stories connocted by the media, this one is ridiculous. They say Katie Holmes was at Joan's on Third yesterday to have a meatloaf sandwich. Absurd!
What is Katie wearing? It looks like a painting smock for a toddler.

Fool's Gold Premiere






















Kate Hudson and everybody else nearly blew away at last night's premiere of Fool's Gold. Matthew McConaughey seems to have cleaned up his act, chopping his locks and suiting up for the event with his baby's mama by his side. If that's what pregnant looks like, sign me up!

Guess Who's Getting Another Cover?

Yep, it will be the 3rd cover for The Girls Next Door stars Kendra, Holly, and Bridget. Hef made the call after they did their annual sexiest celebs poll and found the girls climbing the ranks. Their show continues to be a success on E! and they are featured in the March issue of Playboy.

Bump Watch: Camila




















Camila Alves displays her new baby bump while shopping in Malibu. She and boyfriend Matthew McConaughey have been getting parenting tips from his Fool's Gold co-star Kate Hudson.

Also shopping in Malibu? Pam Anderson looking more than weather-beaten.

The Superbowl is Coming

Are you ready? Tom Brady reaches for his inner Gisele while posing for the cameras.
Where are you watching the game? Last year, the gang decided we had to get the best seats at Barney's and showed up to find we were the first people in the bar. Seriously...crickets. So we ended up playing a marathon, I'm talking hours long, game of Chandeliers. As the bar filled up, so did our table with strangers buying shots to have a cup to get in on the game. Ah, I love the Superbowl...

Posh Portfolio




















Victoria Beckham plays it cool while making an in-store appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue in Boston. She was promoting her DVB line.


I also notice that her book, "That Extra Half Inch", is finally available in the states. Check it out here.

Brit Brit Back in the Hospital


Once again, Britney Spears has been hospitalized for a 72-hour psychiatric evalutation. After spending the day with Adnan, Brit Brit returned home. Her mother, in town to reportedly begin an intervention which was delayed by Britney's refusal to participate, was back at the house. Also there, Alli Sims and Sam Lufti, who stated that Britney went willingly, that she knew something was wrong. Britney has reportedly been prescribed medication to deal with psychological issues, rumored to stem from a bipolar disorder. An ambulence and police escort were pre-arranged to escort Britney safely to the hospital. Her father visited her later at the hospital.

How To Sell a Phone


Sophia Bush, Natasha Bedingfield and Taylor Momsen (of Gossip Girl) show some love to the latest version of the Blackberry pearl. There was a launch party for the phone in New York last night. I don't know, it doesn't look all that cool to me. I need the full keyboard on my bb!

Not His Best Look


Justin Timberlake scruffs it up as he exits the Ivy in London. He was dining with girlfriend Jessica Biel who is in London filming her latest flick. Justin has business in London, too - he's collaborating with Madonna on her new album and is filming a part in her new music video. Hawt!
