Anna Loginova often appeared on the covers of Russian magazines wearing little clothing, the Eastern European version of Keeley Hazell and Lucy Pinder.

However, behind the glossy images, Loginova had another profession: She was an experienced bodyguard, trained in martial arts, commanding high prices to protect Russia's wealthy elite.

Sadly, it was this latter trait that led to her tragic death Sunday night.

In Moscow that evening, police say they recovered Loginova's battered body after she tried to prevent her Porsche Cayenne from being stolen; she reportedly clung on to the SUV as a thief sped away inside it.

The vehicle was later found abandoned.

"According to eyewitnesses, an intruder just threw her out of the car," said Oleg Pavlov, a special police investigator in charge of the investigation. "She grabbed the door handle, but when the car took off and picked up speed, she let go."

No one has been arrested in connection with the killing.

Stuck in the psycho ward, Britney Spears wanted some In-N-Out.

And we're not talking about the kind of service she's been gettin' from Adnan Ghalib. If you know what we mean!

We mean fast food - and good stuff at that.

The pop star got a craving for some In-N-Out Burger cuisine, and thus dispatched her personal bitch/manager, Sam Lutfi, to a local branch.

Sam Lutfi, who showed up around 4:10 p.m., left at 7:42 p.m. and returned at 8:03 p.m. with a "Double-Double" combo (a double cheeseburger, fries and a drink) from In-N-Out Burger, which he said the singer had requested.

The seedy Osama, who is battling for control over Britney (and has been for some time) then left for good at 8:14 p.m. When asked by celebrity news media if he was worried about Spears, he replied, "I think we all are."

Britney Spears' parents, Lynne and Jamie Spears, spent the entire day with their daughter following an early morning intervention Thursday.

They arrived at UCLA Medical Center around 11 a.m. and left in separate vehicles around 8:35 p.m. shortly before visiting hours ended at 9 p.m.

Spears, who has battled mental problems for a long time, may be involuntarily committed for treatment, as she is deemed a danger to herself and others.

Heidi Montag is, like, one step closer to fulfilling her dream of stardom. Or something. She's got some fake boobs, though, that's for sure.

The star of The Hills has completed her new single, "Higher." Her boyfriend and former fiance, Spencer Pratt, produced the thing. Really.

Heidi 2.0

The track is available on iTunes ... Tuesday. Patience. Patience.

The popular celebrity gossip site Us Weekly has the full track, which you can listen to here. We've got ... something sort of similar!

Here's a short video of Heidi Montag singing the song live, as Spencer Pratt and Perez Hilton both dance like idiots in the background.

In a rare display of unity, Hollywood rallied to the side of Heath Ledger to protest the airing of a two-year-old tape showing the deceased actor at a drug-fueled hotel party that was yanked off U.S. airwaves.

Hollywood news shows Entertainment Tonight and The Insider had both planned to air the alleged Heath Ledger drug tape on Thursday.

After they had aired portions of the controversial video on the East Coast, the two celebrity news shows said Wednesday evening that they decided against playing the video "out of respect for Heath Ledger and his family."

The decision followed a PR campaign by Ledger's publicity firm, L.A.-based ID-PR, to rally Hollywood celebrities against the shows.

ID-PR sent an e-mail to PR companies, talent agencies, management firms and studio execs, questioning the "common decency" of the programs.

It seems to have worked, although celebrity gossip sites have speculated on and even shown portions of the alleged Heath Ledger drug tape in recent days.

The grainy video does not show Heath Ledger actually using drugs, but he admits to smoking marijuana in the past. The video was said to be taken in January 2006 at the Chateau Marmont hotel on Hollywood's Sunset Strip.

In the last two weeks, several magazines and celebrity gossip sites have claimed that Ledger, who was found dead January 22, went on drinking binges and used cocaine and other drugs. The cause of his death is still uncertain.

Two days ago, Us Weekly reported that Michelle Williams, Heath's ex-fiancee, left the actor partly to shield their baby daughter from his partying lifestyle.

Move over, Britney Spears.

Sit down, Justin Chambers.

Mendes, E.

Eva Mendes is the latest celebrity to check into rehab. The Ghost Rider star is currently residing in the famous Cirque Lodge, near Sundance.

Yes, this is the same facility that treated Lindsay Lohan. It's actually one of the most respected institutions of its kind in the country.

Mendes has been at Cirque for several weeks and wish her the best.

First, New Kids on the Block.

Now, Paula Abdul.

We can't wait until leg warmers and Hulk Hogan in the WWE both come back, as well.

Reportedly, the Abudl-inspired aspect of the recent 1980s resurgence is due to the fact that the American Idol judge is not content to simply release a song on Randy Jackson's upcoming compilation.

Paula, who hasn't released an album in over a ten years, has announced on her official website that she's working on a new CD.

"New Paula Abdul album coming summer 2008," the site promises. Are you looking forward to it?

Forget any of this year's American Idol hopefuls: Paula Abdul is coming out with a new CD!

Sources at UCLA Medical Center say Britney Spears has been classified as "G.D." - Gravely Disabled. That, experts say, is a huge, dangerous deal.

According to TMZ, who broke this story, that means the patient is unable to take care of basic needs like obtaining food, clothing or shelter.

Being G.D. is one of the criteria for involuntary commitment.

Several health care professionals say Britney Spears has been falling more and more into a "manic state" due to her bipolar disorder.

She arrived at the hospital Thursday morning around 2:15 a.m., but wasn't admitted until 4:15 a.m. because she was causing a scene.

This recent Britney Spears photo pretty much speaks for itself.

Flying off the handle, Britney accused her mother, Lynne Spears (who was there), of sleeping with her boyfriend, screaming:

"The only reason she's admitting me is because she wants to be alone with her boyfriend! She wants to sleep with my boyfriend!!"

Britney did not clarify if she meant Sam Lutfi or Adnan Ghalib.

In November, she made the same charge about Lynne and K-Fed.

When Spears calmed down, she talked about Sean Preston and Jayden James, how much she misses them and how it's unfair she's not with them.

We love making fun of Britney Spears as much as anyone, but the girl obviously needs help. Here's hoping she gets it this time.

TMZ also reports that the people treating Britney Spears are - thankfully - being praised by colleagues for their compassion and her credentials.

Casey Patridge, sister of The Hills star Audrina Patridge, gave birth to her baby, Sadie Raine on January 22. Hooray!

Their infant daughter - weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces - is the first for Casey Patridge and her fiance, Aaron Hershman.

Audrina Patridge Measures Up

Audrina Patridge tells Us Weekly, "She is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen and I'm so happy to be an Auntie!"

The Hills' Audrina and Casey Patridge were raised in Yorba Linda, Calif., in Orange County. They also have another sister, named Samantha.

Casey's pregnancy has been mentioned lately as the reason Audrina Patridge has been spending much of her free time in Orange County.

The Hills gossip on the web was that Audrina and Lauren Conrad were fighting, but AP says she was only out of town a lot because of Casey.

Last night's Democratic presidential debate in L.A. between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was notable for several reasons:

  • Nobody started crying during it
  • There was actually a discussion of issues
  • A large number of stars were in the audience

Forget the Oscars or Grammy Awards - they should have had a red carpet for this thing! Just a few of the many celebrities on hand:

Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio, Pierce Brosnan, Diane Keaton, Stevie Wonder, former Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington, Bradley Whitford of The West Wing, and America Ferrera (with fiance/non-fiance Ryan Piers Williams).

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton talk health care and foreign policy.

Barack Obama certainly has his share of celebrity support (Oprah Winfrey, Scarlett Johansson), but like the nation's voters so far, the crowd on hand last night seemed relatively split between the two Democrats.

America Ferrera has even teamed with Chelsea Clinton and has actually been knocking on doors for their fave candidate. We mean Hillary Clinton.
