NaomiCampbell says she very much regrets losing her temper and hitting her maid with her cell phone over a pair of missing jeans last year.

Really, we might as well stop there. That pretty much sums it up.

"I felt very remorseful for having thrown the phone at someone that didn't deserve it," the 35-year-old supermodel told Extra. "I have a deep sense of shame for the things I've done."

THG NOTE: We hope that somewhere, Howard K. Stern is listening.

So what made Naomi snap and do chuck that cellular device? Tiredness, lack of sleep (and) "just so many things," she says.

"I was being really destructive to myself. ... I didn't know how to reach out. It was a really scary time," said Campbell of the incident in which she channelled her inner Russell Crowe.

Campbell, who has a reputation for angry outbursts, pled guilty to assault last month for hitting Ana Scolavino in the back of the head with the phone in March 2006. Scolavino was treated for a head injury.

"I threw a cell phone in the apartment. The cell phone hit Ana," Campbell said at her court appearance. "This was an accident because I did not intend to hit her."

In a way, it's similar to those Antonella Barba photos. While the American Idol contestant was all about giving an unnamed man oral pleasure with a digital camera shoved in her face, she didn't intend for them to be posted online.

Okay, that's a bit of a stretch. Moving on. In exchange for a guilty plea, Campbell was ordered to pay Scolavino's medical expenses of $363, do five days of community service and attend a two-day anger-management program.

"I do therapy every day," Campbell tells Extra, adding that she doesn't beat herself up (literally or otherwise) over what happened.

She's also partaking in the healing powers of crystals: "I think they bring great energy. ... You should see how many I travel with."

That's nice. Janice Dickinson has some good things to say about the kama sutra, too, if her fellow insane supermodel is interested.

Yesterday, Larry Birkhead spoke about seeing his daughter for the first time. The guy seemed genuinely touched.

Now, sources tell TMZ that Virgie Arthur arrived at Horizons - the Nassau house where Howard K. Stern is looking after the child -around 8 PM last night, and left about 50 minutes later.

Birkhead, Baby!

Reportedly, she looked and acted "distraught" upon leaving, while being accompanied by a bodyguard and a driver, as well as a brunette woman described as a "relative" after meeting Dannielynn Hope for the first time.

The fact that Birkhead and the mother of Anna Nicole Smith have now met up with Dannielynn suggest that a compromise may soon be on the way. Stern appears ready to admit that he's not the father after all.

His denial all along has been akin to Kim Kardashian shooting down sex tape rumors. Was there ever any doubt these two were lying?

Maybe that rumored feud with Jennifer Hudson isn't that big of a deal anymore.

Beyonce may have more important things to worry about now that guests at a Sports Illustrated party may have been exposed to hepatitis by a Wolfgang Puck prep cook, health officials said.

Pregnant Beyonce

The Los Angeles County Department of Health sent guests alerts Tuesday saying the worker had acute hepatitis A and recommended vaccinations for anyone who ate uncooked food at the party and three other events from Feb. 14-20.

There have been no reports of illness - but this is similar to an Antonella Barba blowjob picture: all it takes it one and then a series of others could easily pop up.

Carl Schuster, president of Wolfgang Puck Catering, said:

"While the risk of infection is low, we will continue to work with the Health Department to bring a speedy and thorough resolution to this investigation. Our catering efforts continue, and we remain confident that our guests will receive the highest standards of excellence for which Wolfgang Puck is known."

After the cook was placed on medical leave, "we immediately worked to take every precaution to further safeguard our patrons and other employees," said Schuster. Fortunately, the Olsen Twins are not in danger because they haven't eaten anything in six years.

He added the infected employee was not involved in any of the Puck-catered Oscar events, including the Governors Ball after the Academy Awards.

The Feb. 14 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition party was the biggest of the events where the cook worked. Beyonce, who posed for the cover, was joined by major Sports Illustrated models including Bar Refeali, Veronica Varekova, Yamila Diaz-Rahi, Ana Beatriz Barros and Marisa Miller.

We'll keep you updated as news on this story breaks. But it's very sad already. It's not like Keira Knightley needed another excuse to avoid food.

Sure, Jennifer Hudson may be expressing stunned ecstasy over her Oscar victory Sunday night. The actress certainly seemed in awe during her acceptance speech.

But sources backstage at the awards tell us the former American Idol finalist had forgotten all about the little man in her hand by the time this picture was taken.

A Jennifer Hudson Photo

Instead, she had just found out about certain Antonella Barba pictures that depict that singer and very different sort of little man.

Was Jennifer bothered because her chance to be in the Idol spotlight would be stolen all week by a girl on her knees? Or was she tweaked over the fact that some so-called friend of Antonella would actually publish those Barba pics on the Web?

We might never know.

According to a recent interview given by Kim Kardashian, she really isn't all that rich.

The same definitely can't be said of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. According to Forbes magazine, the thin, ghastly sisters are the top-earning stars under the age of 21.

Olsen Twins Look On

The duo â€" who don't turn 21 until June 13 â€" made an estimated $40 million in 2006 thanks to their "tween" market base, ages 8 to 12. That makes sense. We know adults, such as former Full House star Bob Saget, aren't buying such crap.

The number-two wealthy minor in the spotlight, according to the financial publication, is Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. We wonder if the fact this actor is baring it all in the London West End production of the stage drama Equus will cause this ranking to increase or decrease.

Lindsay Lohan came in third, with $6 million in earnings. And you wonder why Brody Jenner is going after this actress.

Okay, maybe you don't.

The Hollywood Gossip is torn.

As LC would say, "We're, like, so torn."

The Plastic Pairing

Or, as Heidi Montag might put it, "torn, torn, torn!"

Apparently that's H-Mont's new thing on The Hills now: to repeat every point she has two to three times. But anyway. While Brody Jenner has been turning on the charm around Lauren, and they've maybe, kinda like hooked up, he's not her boyfriend, okay?! How many times can she say it?

That said, we're not sure she should be allowed to spend a whole episode getting territorial about him when Jen came to town for her birthday and moved in on him. On the other hand, if we spend just 10 minutes crushing someone here at T.H. Gossip and another staff member knows it, we expect them to back the g*d damn hell off.

Which I guess means we are coming down on Lauren's side, like, at least a little.

But let us go on the record stating that either way, Lauren is sooooo better off without Brody Jenner! We all know he's just out to date every celebrity he can so he can get famous.

The feud between Lauren and Heidi all began when Heidi, still hurting from a prior rift with LC over the latter's (justified) Spencer-hating, began joining Spencer's evil scheme to get Jen and Brody to totally hook up!

Wow. This demonstrates the lengths Spencer Pratt is willing to go to piss Lauren Conrad off. But really, as with so many of these things, it's much better in Heidi's words, uttered during a key ladies' room conference with Jen: "Loves you, loves you, loves you," she said of the incomparable Brody J.

Lauren, bless her heart, seemed to take a low-key approach in her passive-aggressive attack on Heidi. All she came up with was being BFF-ish with Audrina Patridge - so much so that we seriously thought there'd be some hot girl-on-girl action. For a second.

Just kidding. Not really.

But Heidi Montag, being Heidi Montag, after all, didn't even notice, since she was so busy pushing Jen on top of Brody. Eventually, the crew â€" Heidi, Jen, Brody, and Spencer â€" decided to retire to Brody's condo for the final sealing of the deal, if you will. And Jen will.

We loved the extra touch - just twist that knife in real deep, girl - of Jen phoning LC from the scene of the crime to ask Lauren's permission to go in for the kill. We are, like, officially siding with our girl LC in this feud now, FYI.

"Is it really worth screwing a friend over for Brody?" the adorable Whitney Port asked the next day upon hearing the story.

She meant it rhetorically, we're assuming, but the Gossip will go ahead and answer just the same: "No."

Later, while Lauren steamed clothes at Teen Vogue with Whitney (finally, a truly intern-worthy duty), she got a call from Jen - and the exchanged the followed proves that the newly empowered, assertive Lauren was here to stay.

"Seriously, Jen, don't be at my apartment when I get home," Lauren barked before hanging up.

Oh snap! If only she had given that treatment to Jason Wahler last season (she got it right in the end, though). Later, at home, she gave it good to Heidi, too.

"I don't feel like you're the friend you used to be," she said. "Spencer has you frickin' brainwashed; it's so sad to see. He's a sucky person."

This is why you're our hero, Lauren Conrad. Rock on, girl.

Promises Clinic, the rehab center Britney Spears is currently inhabiting, discovered Britney's "death list" after stripping the pop star of all her possessions when they suspected she smuggled cocaine into the facility.

The list included her estranged husband, Kevin Federline, as well as several members of the paparazzi. A source said:

Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears Picture

"When the staff confronted her she burst into tears, crying uncontrollably. She's such a broken woman. She has dark fantasies about terrible things happening to her enemies."

The mother of Jayden James and Sean Preston has also become "increasingly paranoid" and routinely checks her room for recording devices because she feels "that her thoughts are being recorded," says a source.

Bald Britney is rumored to have been placed on suicide watch - an allegation her manager and family deny - and the staff has reserved a bed for her at University of California Hospital's psychiatric ward. Suicidal or not, since checking into rehab, Britney is still on the edge of a breakdown. Here's what a purported friend of Spears has to say:

"She's convinced that everyone is out to get her... And the smallest thing can set off a fully-blown panic attack. She gets this fearful look in her eyes and starts trembling all over, dripping with sweat, gasping frantically for breath and looking like she's going to faint at any time. It's absolutely terrifying to see. It's the behavior of someone who has completely lost their mind."

Yesterday, Jason Alexander, Britney's husband for 55 hours back in 2004, revealed that Britney has been a hard ass druggie for some time. He claims they used cocaine, Ecstasy, Valium and Vicodin during and that Britney almost overdosed on MDMA (pure "E").

Jason Alexander (not to be confused with the Seinfeld star) says:

"I took her in the bathroom and threw her in the shower. She was unconscious. She tripped and fell. I was trying to hold her up and speak to her. She wasn't moving. I remember looking down at her all crumpled in the tub with the water coming down. She looked so white and lifeless. I thought she was dead. I thought, 'This bitch is going to f*%king die right here in front of me.'"

Good God. If we were Britney Spears' publicist or manager right now, we'd probably kill ourselves. We're not saying that Larry Rudolph should go commit suicide, far from it. We're just saying he's a terrible manager, and his train wreck client isn't doing him any favors, either. Good luck resurrecting that career now!

Kim Kardashian makes us laugh.

The sex kitten is on the cover of the current issue of Complex magzaine - but the interview she gave for the publication is a few weeks old. How do we know? Just take a look at the answer to the first question:

A Nice Body

When asked about Ray J and the sex tape rumors…
"There is no sex tape! Ray J's not the kind of guy who would do something for revenge. There is no amount of money that could ever convince me to release any tape, even if I had one. I don't need the money."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Yeah. There is a sex tape. You can see Kim Kardashian nude in it. Nice try, though.

On the media's misconception of her ...
"I was in Australia with Paris and I was looking at a newspaper and there was a big picture of me and Paris on the cover.. It said that I have a sex scandal going on and that I've dated a few U.S. rappers. I'm like, If you call Ray J and Nick Cannon rappers, then… I was married for four years, had a three-year relationship with Ray, and have been with one person after that. It bothers me that people perceive me this one way."

On the increase of "up the skirt" paparazzi photos that recently been exposed…

"I think that is so annoying. Paris has an SLR, you know, the Mercedes? The doors flip up like a Lamborghini. The seat is, like, lower, so in order to get out, you have to literally put your legs up and hop out. Those are the famous shots people have seen lately, getting out of that car. The paparazzi's motives are so disgusting ... I mean, if it were me, if they had those shots of me, I'd be mortified. But if it happens three times in a row…Then that's just weird."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Good point, Kim. The lack of underwear didn't play a role in these. In the end, Britney Spears crotch shots couldn't be avoided.

On her (former) relationship with Nick Cannon…
"Hmm. I'm gonna have to get back to you on that one. Me and [Paris Hilton] and the girls are trying to stay single for one year. In March, that'll be up. I'm a relationship kind of girl, but I think that everyone needs a year in their life to be single. I was in a long relationship before I was married, then I was married for four years, and then I was in a relationship with Ray J, Brandy's brother. I've never been single, and this is my year. It's hard when you meet really cool, talented, amazing, fun people like Nick."

On rumors of Hollywood cat fights…
"They try to make out like we're mean girls. There was this ridiculous story that Paris is being a mean girl to Kim and they're not friends with Britney, which is so ridiculous. We were laughing at it last night ... You know, one of my best friends happens to be best friends with Lindsay Lohan, and if Paris and her are fighting and I was at a party [with one of them], it's like, Oh, she's stepping over! But it's like, No! We're all friends at the end of the day."

On misconceptions about her group of socialite friends…
"That we're all trust-fund kids and we have it so easy. If anything, I find it the complete opposite. I know people think we drive around in these nice cars and we do whatever we want and our parents will pay our credit cards, but that's not the case. Sure, my parents were generous; I got a nice car at 16, but at 18 I was cut off. I've worked really hard. I opened the store myself. Even Paris and [Nicole Richie] â€" they're completely independent, too."

Victoria Beckham is set to get even more flashbulbs popping.

No, she's not going to be showing off her huge breasts. Well, at least not on the new reality show she's supposedly got in the works.

Victoria Beckham, Daughter

That's right. MTV UK is reporting that Posh Spice herself is slated to appear in her own fly-on-the-wall show about her family's move to Los Angeles.

She's just inked a deal for one series of the show which promises to reveal the real Victoria - behind the pout, if you will. And we will. It will air on NBC later this year.

Posh's manager, Simon Fuller, announced the news in London's Evening Standard newspaper: "Americans were falling over themselves to sign Victoria up for a TV show but we had to choose the right deal for her.

"NBC won out in the end as they have really taken a shine to Victoria's hilarious sense of humor and they want to capitalize on this. She is a funny lady and this new series will show this to the world. It will really humanize her."

The Beckham children - Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo - won't appear in the show. However, David Beckham will, albeit only in a minor role.

Meanwhile, it's not just the new telly show keeping the gal with the giant boobs busy - she will soon be gearing up for the return of the Spice Girls.

Yes, you read that correctly. Simon Fuller - the American Idol creator as well as the Spice Girls' former manager - confirms:

"All of the girls are up for it, and the reunion will definitely happen in the next 18 months. The only person showing any reluctance is Mel C. She thinks her solo career is bigger than the band, which is just not the case. Emma Bunton and Geri Haliwell are meeting her soon to discuss everything and convince her to finally sign a deal."

But don't expect a full-on comeback.

"They'll do a whirlwind tour for six months and they'll be gone again," Fuller said.

Let's hope Victoria signs up for another series of her fly-on-the-wall show and captures that longed-for reunion on camera. Let's also hope that robotic BFF Katie Holmes stops by for some boring as hell scintillating conversation.

Larry Birkhead finally met his daughter this week.

To others, the five-month old is known as Dannielynn, but we all know that Birkhead is the real father of this adorable tyke.

Sliding for Attention

In their time together, Birkhead fed the baby, burped her â€" and she threw up on him, according to a interview and profile for Bravo TV, part of which was aired on the Today show Tuesday.

As for his memories of Anna Nicole Smith, the Los Angeles-based celebrity photographer says that he most cherished his private time with her.

"Every moment that we got together was kind of ... that's what everything's about. To me, it wasn't about the money. [Being with her] that was like gold to me, you know?" Birkhead says in the interview, which was taped before he met Dannielynn.

To Howard K. Stern, of course, actual gold is a lot more like gold.

When the Larry and Annae found out she was pregnant, he recalled: "She just had this different look about her. It was really weird, because her skin, everything looked different. Everything was weird. And as soon as she went to sleep, I took my hand and I went â€" you know, I kind of felt over and I just laid my hand there [on her stomach], because I just knew at that moment that she was pregnant."

Wow. Smart guy. Too bad people such as Kim Walther continue to make the permanent Birkhead/Dannielynn reunion difficult to achieve.
