She's our most gossiped-about celebrity, and certainly the favorite of at least half the staff. So it's only fitting that on the last day of the year 2006, T.H. Gossip offers a brief tribute to the year in Britney Spears, while hoping 2007 brings us more of the same.

The new mom almost killed son Sean Preston more than once. K-Fed became FedEx. New baby Sutton Pierce turned out to actually be Jayden James. Britney went from knocked up to f*%ked up. We got to hear the names Jason Alexander and Shar Jackson again.

Good God. If we were to recap every noteworthy story or funny incident, it would be the longest retrospective imaginable. So we'll keep it brief. For a full collection of Britney Spears pictures from the past year, check out our official gallery. And please see our expansive, archived Britney Spears news section for all the Brit happenings since we've been in existence.

Without further ado, here's 2006: A Britney Spears Odyssey...

ROW 1: A pregnant Britney caught considerable flak for driving with her first-born, Sean Preston Federline, on her lap. Later, she would have dropped the poor little tyke on the street, were it not for the efforts of a stranger. Amazing.

ROW 2: Brit guest starred on Will & Grace (left), and on the Today Show with Matt Lauer. Although the latter was actually an interview with the star, and as you can see, it didn't go all that well as Spears was in full train wreck mode.

ROW 3: Some strange, semi-hot nude Britney Spears pictures in Harper's Bazaar marked the first time in 2006 that we'd seen the pop star naked... but the last time in which she was pregnant. Over the summer, we saw Britney looking like a truck driver hopped up on crystal meth. Good times.

ROW 4: Fresh off filing for divorce from Kevin Federline, Britney showed off a newly-hot body and fun-loving attitude. She then proceded to link up with some unsavory characters, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. The girl does not have the best taste in friends... or men, for that matter.

ROW 5: During a bizarre night on the town with Paris, Britney Spears' breasts stole the show... until they were upstaged by the unthinkable: A full-on, shaved, Britney Spears crotch shot. Seriously, who goes clubbing with no pants?

ROW 6: Showing off even more of her wild side, Britney made an appearance at a California strip club. And got up on stage. And did a little number. She was asked to get off the stage and leave by management. Finally, she hooked up with J.R. Rotem, a quote-unquote music producer and certified grease ball.

What a year. Here's to you, Britney, in hopes that '07 is half as fun.

Some may believe New Year's Eve is an amateur, anti-climactic holidays. Others, such as the celebrities below, may believe it's an excuse to party like Britney Spears without any underwear on.

Either way, People magazine and The Hollywood Gossip now deliver the goods on what various famous people are up to this December 31:

LohanMIAMI:
  • At Mansion, DJ AM, Travis Barker and Lohan's ex Wilmer Valderrama will reign over the festivities. As Valderrama told People, "What's a better way to celebrate a great year than coming to Mansion?"
  • Euro-chic lounge Prive and Opium Garden, the open-air club it overlooks, will welcome Dave Navarro, Kristin Cavallari and Spider-Man 3's James Franco.
  • Jared Leto will helm the party at the Raleigh Hotel, owned by Uma Thurman's beau Andre Balazs, where guests can mingle in an open-air beachfront bar.

LAS VEGAS:

  • Talk about out with the old: Britney Spears will usher in the New Year with a bash at Caesars Palace's PURE nightclub �" the backdrop for Kevin Federline's "Lose Control" video.
  • Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden will take over the deejay booth at Ghostbar on the 55th floor of the Palms Casino Resort. Will new squeeze Nicole Richie be there to kiss him at midnight?
  • Pamela Anderson will host a bash at Tao at the Venetian while her soon-to-be ex-husband Kid Rock parties across the street at The Mirage's Jet nightclub.
  • As he did in 2005, Vince Vaughn will bring his Wild West Comedy tour to Mandalay Bay. This year, John Favreau will join him onstage to mark the 10-year anniversary of Swingers, the movie that made them famous.

Stop us if you've heard this before, but the marriage between Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey is over.

Completely. Finally. Legally. Once and for all.

Jessica is Having a Baby!

The two have resolved the splitting of their asset. It officially brings their divorce to a close, even though details of their settlement are undisclosed.

Jessica separated from Nick in June 2006 and filed for divorce that December. It's still unclear if a bit of Bam Margera played a role in the break-up.

It is clear, though, that Simpson has spent the past few months shooting her latest film, Blonde Ambition, in Shreveport, La. as she attempts to move on. At times, John Mayer has tried to help with that goal, as well.

Lachey, meanwhile, is scheduled to host a party at Pure Nightclub in Las Vegas on Saturday night. He spent his time since the breakup renovating a Bel Air bachelor pad and amping up his music career with the gold-selling album What's Left of Me and a nationwide tour.

Oh, he's also dating MTV vixen Vanessa Minnillo. Not too shabby.

That whole Kevin Federline rumor never really materialized.

But the love life of Jennifer Aniston is once again being bantered about. So goes the world of a recently single Hollywood beauty.

Pretty Jen

The most recent man to make his move on Vince Vauhgn's ex is billionaire playboy Steve Bing. According to In Touch, Bing approached Aniston and gave her his phone number while she was having dinner with friends at West Hollywood's Madeo restaurant.

"They've known each other socially. He saw an opportunity and made a move," said a source.

Aniston isn't the first hottie Bing has gone for. His gobs of money charm has helped him date such well-known, attractive actresses as Nicole Kidman and Elizabeth Hurley.

Hard to say what it is about the guy. But we just want Jen to be happy. Going from Brad Pitt to Steve Bing, however? Sounds like more of a step down than going from a stripper to Lindsay Lohan.

Now that the mystery of nude Heather Mills photos has been solved, the next issue on the docket for Britain's favorite divorced couple involves a few pricier pictures.

Police were called to the country estate of Paul McCartney after his one-leggeed ex-wife reported the theft of paintings - including a Picasso and a Renoir - from the lodge they once shared.

Heather Mills' Bad Hair

"We checked the premises, and spoke to Heather Mills (McCartney), and as a result it was found to be a civil matter between her and her husband," Sussex Police spokesman Paddy Rea said. "There's been no theft."

Mills called police Thursday night after discovering that paintings valued at an estimated $19.5 million had gone missing, The Sun newspaper reported Friday.

Turns out, however, that McCartney had taken the art work and reprogrammed the estate's alarm codes, informed his crazy ex Thursday night by text message.

Yes, apparently a former Beatle uses text messages. Maybe he couldn't log-in to his MySpace account.

Mills should be grateful Sir Paul didn't use Victoria Beckham's boobs as a weapon at least.

He's underrated within the world of celebrity babies.

But even Maddox Jolie-Pitt and that cool hair may need to take a backseat to a new cuteness contender:

Say hello to Harry Letterman.

The toddler is seen here playing with his father, David Letterman. While little is known about the toddler's mother, this much is known about Harry himself: the kid is adorable.

Suri Cruise has some serious competition all of a sudden.

Just as we were welcoming a baby into the world for Diddy and Kim Porter, news comes out that another star is pregnant again.

Page Six has learned that Julia Roberts has her third bun in the over and will give birth next summer.

In November 2004, the beautiful actress gave birth to twins Phinnaeus Walter and Hazel Patricia. Amazingly, she's kept them mostly under wraps, so we don't know how their cuteness compares to that of Jayden James Federline or Suri Cruise.

Whether Roberts' upcoming visit from the stork will be her last is anybody's guess. She once told Oprah Winfrey that she and Moder wanted a big family.

"I'm in the harbor of my life . . . Danny has really shined the light for me."

Forget portraying Lance Armstrong on the big screen.

Perhaps Jake Gyllenhaal should star as as firefighter in his next movie instead.

Sexy EW Cover

The Oscar-nominated actor played such a role quite effectively Wednesday after he and his sister, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal were forced from their beds due to an early morning fire at Manka's Inverness Lodge in the San Francisco Bay area of California.

After all, Jake does have a lot of free time now that he isn't having crazy sex with Kirsten Dunst anymore.

According to the Marin Independent Journal, the Gyllenhaals - who frequently vacation at the inn - were among the dozen or so guests that fled into the wind and rain at close to 3 a.m.

"Jake was helping me pull things out of the fire," chef and co-owner Daniel DeLong told the Journal, adding that the actors were helpful and concerned about the historic lodge.

The fire reportedly started after a tree crashed into the back of the inn. Fortunately, Peter Sarsgaard was not injured in the accident.

... for her dog.

Come on. Who else would it be for?

Kate Bosworth Nipple Action

But it is nice to know that Kate Bosworth is feeding her puppy even while starving herself. Maybe one day the actress can realize that the two are not mutually exclusive.

As mentioned earlier, Bosworth and Jessica Alba do love dogs. The latter, however, has been known to finish an entire meal most of the time. The former, sadly, tries to hide her lack of a figure by wearing curtains.

Now that Nicole Richie is eating - or at least shopping for food - perhaps there's hope for all thin actresses.

You just gotta believe, Kate Hudson. And eat.

Lindsay Lohan as a stripper?!?

What's next, Stephen Colbert as an American patriot?!?

What a Frickin' Mess

The actress, in preparation for her role as a topless dancer in I Know Who Killed Me - or just for her next night out - spent nearly three hours at NYC strip club Scores West last night.

According to Page Six, Lohan jumped onstage for an impromptu Perrier-fueled striptease, then made reparations for calling strippers "whores" and "c--ts" in a recent e-mail to friends.

"I love strippers," the actress said as she entered the boobie bar at 12:30 a.m.

"She got up on the stripper pole and began to dance with the Scores Girls with 400 customers cheering her on," a source said. "Then, she joined her entourage of 15 in the VIP area, and got lap dances from many of the girls, including a special double-dance from two strippers at once."

Let's just hope innocent, young Ali Lohan didn't witness her sister's behavior.

Lindsay also went out of her way to pull topless dancers into the bathroom to apologize for her recent, negative comments about the industry.

One of the dancers, Brooke, said all was forgiven. She also added:"She'll make a good stripper - she's a natural."

There's a shock. Naturally, Katie Rees will be available to offer Lohan any tips if necessary.
