Britney Spears has already pulled a no-show at several hearings, including a pair of mandatory, court-ordered depositions, in her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline over their two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

She has blamed her absence on everything from anxiety attacks (or so says her unofficial press secretary, Sam Lutfi) to the paparazzi. Legal sources are now saying, though, that if Britney skips the next one, she's in deep $h!t.

Britney: Rear View

Sources close to the ongoing custody war between Britney and Kevin confirm that the "Gimme More" and "Piece of Me" singer is â€" once again â€" scheduled to be deposed by K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, the first week in January.

However, as the train wreck mother of two has already blown off over a half-dozen previously scheduled attempts at being deposed by Kaplan â€" many insiders are convinced that Britney, 26, will be a no-show for this one as well.

Will Britney Spears bail on yet another custody hearing?

The consequences? "She could go to jail for contempt if she refuses to show," a legal experts told OK! Magazine. "That would be extreme for a child custody hearing, but not outside the realm of possibility given the circumstances."

More likely, explains the courtroom insider, is the possibility that team Federline could ask the court to impose additional monetary sanctions on Britney Spears, who is already paying most or all of Kevin's legal costs.

Would jail really be such a terrible thing for Britney right now? It's probably less rank than some of the gas stations she visits every day... and it's harder to kill yourself in jail as well, with no belt, shoelaces and the like. Just saying.

It's always nice to have a positive role model.

Lindsay Lohan and little sister Ali Lohan sported matching spandex pants while out and about together in New York City on Wednesday. Man, they're so hot.

Fourth Court Date of 2011

Oh wait, no they're not. If it weren't for Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan would be the biggest wreck in Hollywood, easy. And Ali Lohan? She's 14! Just so wrong.

We're not above ogling Hayden Panettiere ... but 14? If you're 14, you just should not be wearing spandex pants. Especially with no underwear. Look closely and you'll see there is serious Ali Lohan camel toe action going on in the pic below...

Lindsay Lohan has taught younger sister Ali Lohan well.

Yesterday, we talked about Sophie Price and how she is trying to emulate her big sis, Jordan. Must be little sisters wanting to skank it up like older siblings week.

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton's potential inheritance dramatically diminished after her grandfather, Barron Hilton, announced plans on Wednesday to donate 97 percent of his estimated $2.3 billion fortune to charity.

You could say Paris Hilton has had the heir taken out of her balloon, so to speak. You could also say she put the "ho" in hotel heiress, so to speak. Eh?

The fortune in question includes $1.2 billion Barron Hilton stands to earn from both the recent sale of Hilton Hotels Corp., and the pending sale of the world's biggest casino company, Harrah's Entertainment Inc.

The donated money will be placed in a trust that will eventually benefit the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, raising its total value to about $4.5 billion.

Poor Paris will be left to inherit merely a few million.

Barron Hilton, chairman of the foundation, intends "to contribute 97 percent of his entire net worth, estimated at $2.3 billion, including the created trusts, at whatever value it is at the time of his passing," the foundation said.

What on Earth will Paris and Nicky Hilton do? Continue to get paid $500,000 to show up at parties (Paris) or start their own businesses (Nicky)? Likely.

Perhaps Stavros Niarchos - Paris' on-again, off-again lover and heir to a Greek shipping fortune himself - will be back in her good graces after this news.

Paris, a symbol of celebrity privilege in America, first gained fame in 2003 when a sex tape featuring herself and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon was posted online.

She parlayed her notoriety, fueled by tabloid headlines about her partying lifestyle, into a celebrity career that has included a reality TV show, a book, an album, and film roles. This year she spent three weeks in jail for violating probation.

At last! Josh Duhamel and Fergie are engaged!

The actor's publicist, Ruth Bernstein, said her client recently popped the question to the Black Eyed Peas singer, whose debut solo album, The Dutchess, is one of 2007's biggest selling records. No further details were released.

Fergie and Josh Duhamel have been the subject of engagement rumors for over a year. The pair, which is currently vacationing near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, were seen looking at a ranch in California that is often rented for weddings.

The engagement news was first reported by celebrity news site TMZ.

If Fergie is The Dutchess, is Josh Duhamel the Duke?

Duhamel, 35, told Best Life magazine in a recent interview that he's been dating Fergie, 32 for three years and that they recently bought a house together.

Duhamel is the star of NBC's Las Vegas and the action movie Transformers.

Fergie, whose real name is Stacy Ann Ferguson, is a member of the Black Eyed Peas. Her hit song "Big Girls Don't Cry" from The Dutchess has been nominated for a Grammy award in the best female pop vocal category.

The man known as "Tailor Made" really does love New York.

George Weisgerber and Tiffany Pollard are officially engaged, the couple has announced, a couple weeks after Pollard turned down her suitor's proposal on the I Love New York 2 season finale.

Bringing the Bling

Weisgerber proposed on the December 17 finale, but Pollard said she wanted to wait 24 months before making any decisions about marriage.

"I respected that," Tailor Made told People magazine. "I cherish her. She's what I need."


Which couple will last longer: Tiffany Pollard and Tailor Made or Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon?

On season 2's reunion show - which airs January 6 - Weisgerber proposes to her again and, this time, "she says yes," a source told People exclusively. "They are madly in love. They are a great couple."

In keeping with its tradition of putting Heidi Montag or the Spears family on the cover for the 235th consecutive week, Us Weekly proclaims that Mother of the Year Lynne Spears destroyed the lives of daughters Britney and Jamie Lynn.

That's a bold statement. Not. Just call her Lynne $pear$.

As the shock of the huge Jamie Lynn Spears pregnancy story slowly fades, questions of responsibility and blame have landed on her mother / manager, Lynne.

Jamie Lynn Spears' own co-star is speaking out against Lynne, who is said to have pushed the 16-year-old in directions she wasn't comfortable with.

"Jamie wanted something different for her life, and her mother put her in situations she didn't want to be in," Alexa Nikolas, Jamie Lynn's co-star on Zoey 101, said.

Unanimously, multiple friends and family members say that unlike Britney, Jamie Lynn never wanted to be a star. "She never cared about celebrity," says one old family friend. "She preferred life back home in Kentwood [Louisiana]."

Destroyed By Lynne Spears

A family friend says Lynne Spears "treats her girls like a piggy bank."

As soon as Jamie Lynn, 16, confided in her mom, 52, about her pregnancy, Lynne convinced her introverted daughter (to the displeasure of her father, Jamie Spears) to break the news via the cover of OK! Magazine. The price: $1 million.

"Lynne knew OK! would pay the most," a source said. "It was her decision."

Which is why even Jamie Lynn's older sister, Britney Spears, was kept out of the loop at first: "They didn't want her to run her mouth and screw up the deal."

Instead, Lynne told K-Fed, which further confused the "singer."

From the start of Britney Spears' career in 1998, Lynne, a former teacher, made sure she received a percentage of money off both her daughters' deals. Shocking.

"Lynne got all her money through those girls and loved it when it started rolling in," a source says. "She's the only one with a Land Rover in Kentwood."

Lynne Spears even managed to get someone to publish a parenting book, written by herself, entitled Pop Culture Mom. It is indefinitely delayed now, however.

Sophie Price, the 18-year-old sister of Katie Price, a.k.a. Jordan, quit her job as a hairdresser in hopes of becoming a quasi-famous slutty model like her older sis!

Sophia Price openly says she wants to be like her big sister by posing for Page 3 and Playboy. But one thing the younger Price doesn't want: Those giant boobs.

"I want to be as big as Jordan, but not in the boobs department! I wouldn't ever go that massive like Kate," Sophie said. "It would look ridiculous as I'm only a tiny 5-foot-4! I'd just like to go a bit bigger, maybe one size up to a C cup. I really like the bullet boob look at the moment. But I won't be going topless just yet because it won't leave me anywhere to go as a model - and that's important to me."

Well, at least judging by the photo above, it appears Sophie Price has inherited at least two qualities from Katie Price: being a skank and talking about big boobs a lot.

Sophie - who is sometimes referred to as Sophia Price - said that until recently she's been limited to swimwear shoots, but now that she's 18? Game on!

"I can be so much more daring now I'm 18. It felt great being able to pose in such sexy lingerie at last," Sophie Price said. "Kate's absolutely going to love the pictures, especially this one of me in the knee-high boots."

Katie Price, who goes by Jordan for some reason, is famous because she has - or at least had - some seriously huge breasts. That and some reality TV show. The attention whore is presumably still married to that dude Peter Andre.

Ah, there he is. Our favorite ursine specimen has emerged! Deciding that hibernating up north was just too tough this winter, Jason "Gummi Bear" Davis decided to take a vacation. From his day job, which involves doing absolutely nothing.

We're not sure what was on his mind, or how many animals he devoured during the holidays. But in any case, as he strolled down the beach, Jason Davis - brother of Brandon "Greasy Bear" Davis - had this message for the celebrity news media:

Jason Davis Mug Shot

A portly Gummi Bear (Jason Davis) wishes us the best!

Some days, you are wished a Merry Christmas by Lucy Pinder naked in all her glory in Nuts magazine. Others, you get flipped off by Gummi Bear. C'est la vie.
