The amazing Britney Spears wants to do everything she can to help her jackass spouse Kevin Federline get his hip-hop career off the ground, but music industry sources think that in doing so, she could be putting her own career in jeopardy.

Now there's a stunning revelation. You mean associating with a guy who may be the worst rapper in history, and who is also a detestable human being, is potentially bad for your image? Crazy!

Slutty Britney

Yes, crazy. Britney is contributing her voice to a duet called "Crazy" on K-Fed's album, Playing With Fire. So not only is she married to this loser, she's going to be fully integrated into his "music."

Peeps in the music biz are saying Britney could be setting herself for a fall by association, much like another singer in the news these days -- Whitney Houston.

"It's very reminiscent of what happened to Whitney after the baby and 'Something in Common,'" an industry insider said of Sutton Pierce's mama.

Indeed, after Whitney and Bobby Brown recorded that stellar 1993 collaboration, Houston never quite recovered -- despite having cranked out one of the biggest singles of all time, "I Will Always Love You," less than a year earlier.

Besides her myriad personal problems, Whitney's musical production stalled, and although she had two more #1 singles in the 1990s, she's fallen far from her past glory. Precipitously.

As for Britney, she doesn't have a musical mentor like Clive Davis to guide her through the rough creative patches, so it could be an ever rougher road ahead. Plus, K-Fed should be knocking her up again any minute now. Sutton Pierce and Sean Preston -- better get ready for some more company! Mid-September of next year, approximately.

Katie Holmes has reportedly gone through a dramatic weight-loss regimen to "get herself in shape." But why the intense effort?

  • Because she idolizes Nicole Richie?
  • So she can resume her acting career?
  • So she can fit her crazy ass into a wedding dress?

All of the above are solid theories... but with rumors of impending TomKat nuptials swirling, we have to believe the latter is most credible.

Katie Holmes Hair Disaster 230

According to a report this weekend, her baby's daddy, Tom Cruise has been "eager" to get Katie to get fit, and that evidently she's done him proud.

"Katie has lost a lot of weight. A lot," an observer tells MSNBC. "I've heard that Tom was eager to get her back in shape. Looks like she made him happy. And then some."

The prevailing buzz, of course, is that the wedding of Suri Cruise's crazy parents is imminent, and Cruise's rep, Arnold Robinson, has maintained all along that the pair will be getting married sometime this fall.

If only they'd tell us when and where. They're making it awfully hard for T.H. Gossip to crash the thing! Jerks.

It's not easy to keep it real. While Jennifer Lopez is always aiming for her true self, sometimes you need a movie to show you what's important.

Thank goodness for El Cantante in that case.

J. Lo Picture

The film stars J-Lo and husband, Marc Anthony. The latter says he'll play it safe now that he's researched the downward spiral of the late Puerto Rican salsa legend Hector Lavoe.

"He painted this clear picture of what you could be if you put your mind to it, but how painful a life you could live if you made the wrong choices," Anthony said.

And to think, Lopez almost married Ben Affleck instead.

Anthony kicked off a concert in San Juan over the weekend and admitted to feeling a personal connection to Lavoe, who rose to the heights of stardom by bringing salsa to the U.S. â€" only to fall into drug addiction and die in 1993 at age 46.

The project began five years ago, when Lavoe's widow approached Lopez with a script and asked that the star play her in the movie.

"Once I read the script, I knew there was something about their life, the relationship they had, that was compelling to watch," said the actress/singer.

We assume such discussion of the movie helped J-Lo feel better about the fact that her booty has been replaced by that of Beyonce as the best in Hollywood.

Getting back to work in the studio should also help to distract Lopez. Her next project is a Spanish-language album which Anthony is producing. She says it also offers reflections on life.

"It just talks about maybe I've rushed, maybe I've made mistakes ... but you know my only sin is that I was loving the way a woman loves," Lopez said.

That seems harmless enough, right? Especially when you consider the sins of someone like Kristen Cavallari, who's had lots and lots of pre-marital sex.

We never thought we'd say this, but: it's not a great time to be David Hasselhoff.

First, reports surfaced that the former Knight Rider and Baywatch star made up his daughter's suicide attempt. Now, it's becoming apparent that he may have imagined the crush Princess Di had on him years ago.

David Hasselhoff, Hayley Roberts

The butler for the late Princess of Wales seems to think so.

A couple weeks ago, Hasselhoff said in London that Diana "was smitten with me since I was so tall ... I probably would have gone after her if circumstances had been different."

Like, if she hadn't been a princess and you hadn't been a washed up 1980s TV star?

According to Paul Burrell, Di's former butler, however, Hasselhoff's talking complete and utter rubbish. Just like Nicole Richie every time she says she's healthy.

"There was never ever any hint of any date or romance between the two of them," said Burrell. "Such a suggestion is as far-fetched as a talking car called K.I.T.T."

Wow. Who knew butler's could be so witty?

Burrell stated that the young princes, William and Harry, were fans of Baywatch and that the Hoff sent them some autographed stuff from the show â€" including a picture of him in all his hairy-chested glory.

When Diana saw the photo, said Burrell, "I remember the princess laughing hysterically at the photo and turning her nose up."

Sorry, Hoff. If it makes you feel any better, we have the same reaction every time we look at a Kevin Federline picture.

Petra Nemcova may be a super model, but she's merely a mediocre date. At least when you compare costs.

A couple of Wall Street traders entered into a bidding war over the girlfriend of James Blunt, with the winner shelling out $21,000 for dinner with the beauty, The sum will be donated to to the Happy Hearts Fund, a charity that helps children who have suffered in natural disasters.

Petra Nemcova and Jamie Belman

We admire the cause, but are surprised at the result. A few months ago, Jessica Biel fetched $30,000 in a date auction, with the proceeds benefitting the victim of a car accident in Colorado.

Then, Eva Longoria set the bar almost impossibly high, as the Desperate Houswives star garnered a $100,000 bid for her charitable date.

Is Blunt really so frightening that bidders were afraid to bid on the model? We doubt it. Nevertheless, how much would you pay to date a gorgeous celebrity?

And could anyone pay you enough to put up with Lindsay Lohan for a night?

When you're responsible for the term "bootylicious" ending up in the dictionary, you obviously know a thing or two about rear ends.

That's Some Dress

Therefore, it should come as no real surprise that In Touch has named Beyonce as having the best backside in Hollywood.

The former member of Destiny's Child certainly knows how to shake her thang and make guys lose their breath. She said the top beauty tip for perfect skin is to never wash your face with soap or cleansers, only water.

Here are the poll's final rankings:

1. Beyonce Knowles
2. Jessica Simpson
3. Salma Hayek
4. Jessica Biel
5. Halle Berry
6. Tyra Banks
7. Scarlett Johansson
8. Jennifer Lopez
9. Eva Longoria
10. Jessica Alba

Of course, if Ashton Kutcher had his way, Brad Pitt would be up there, too. Maybe next year.

Sort of.

See, the Alabama country places an emphasis on the first syllable, a sort of schwa-sounding "e" and a "t" that's pronounced aloud.

Steve Colbert

But there's no sense in trying to tell that to Stephen Colbert.

The egocentric Comedy Central talk show host is convinced the area was named after him, despite the different pronunciations. Consequently, he plans to open "The Stephen Colbert Museum and Gift Shop" in Tuscumbia.

But not really. Kind of like how Anna Nicole Smith is married.

Either way, it's gonna to be part of an October storyline on the The Colbert Report. Representatives of the show will tape for a couple of days early next week in the county, producer Jeff Cooperman said.

Ultimately, the joke will be that Colbert (Stephen, that is) isn't as popular as he thought because the museum closes for lack of interest the next day.

"The premise is Stephen Colbert wants to open his museum, and what better place than a county that is named for him," Cooperman said. "This town seems like the perfect place to send his building manager â€" a guy named Tad (played by one of the show's staff, Paul Dinello) â€" to open the museum."

He adds, tongue-in-cheek, "One thing Stephen is going to try to figure out is why you guys pronounce Stephen's last name wrong."

Don't feel bad, town. We can never properly spell the name "Matthew McConaughey" on the first try.

Hey, Brad, if things don't work out with that Angelina Jolie person, we know who you could court next.

Can you say Brashton?

Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher

Indeed, Ashton Kutcher has opened up about your fabulous body, telling a recent interviewer that your pecs and bis may have him thinking of going bi.

"I went and saw Troy, I was with my wife (Demi Moore) and with a friend, and every time Brad came on and he was like naked or whatever, they were like 'Ohh', and I'm like, 'I'm right here, I'm sitting right next to you,'" said Kutcher, "I knew this movie was coming up so I went out and hired Brad Pitt's trainer."

The self-admitted "pack-a-day smoker" who "hadn't really worked out since high school" had a tough time getting into top shape for The Guardian and admits he's already on a downward spiral since shooting wrapped.

"No. I'm done... I'll train for the next one, it's fine, I'll run a little bit, I'll stay in shape, I can still do some pull-up's and I do some push-ups and stuff but it's just brutal. It's a full time job it keep yourself in that kind of shape, it's no joke."

The Gossip knows, Ash. Our jealously of Perez Hilton has led to daily typing exercises and mouse click marathons.
