  • The latest rumored comeback strategy for Britney Spears is a reality show supposedly being pitched to several major networks by her once and current manager Larry Rudolph.

  • Apparently Spears is an insult to the artistic integrity of Doogie Howser. Neil Patrick Harris of How I Met Your Mother, formerly of Doogie, dissed Spears, who recently did a cameo: "I'm in the minority that feels our show does not need stunt casting in order to succeed... I worry that if they start Will and Grace-ing us too much, that the show will suffer. We're all really proud of the content of the show." [OK!]
  • George Clooney's girlfriend is not only stashing her clothes at his place, but also took the bold step of installing scented candles and fresh flowers. The actor is out of town promoting his movie, and the girlfriend, Sarah Larson, is just kind of crashing. And, you know, suffocating him. [OK!]
