Britney Spears' former manager, Larry Rudolph, confirmed celebrity gossip that he recently met up with the troubled singer, who is his old friend.

Like many others who have spoken with Britney of late (since father Jamie stepped into her life), Larry Rudolph says she's "doing great."

"I have spent time with her, and she is on the right path because she has people around her who really care about her well-being," Rudolph said.

He would not comment further on Britney Spears, explaining, "this isn't the time to talk business. This is a time for healing." Good man.

Last week, a source reported that Britney Spears met with Larry Rudolph, who is credited for discovering her talent and managing her career for nine years.

They stopped talking last February after Britney sorta went bonkers and in turn blamed Larry for "forcing her" into rehab, when it he seemed he was one of the only ones in her inner circle trying to do anything to help her.

He was relieved of his duties shortly thereafter.

Rudolph did not turn his back on her, though, even remaining on the run to avoid testifying in her custody case when subpoenaed by Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Rudolph, who is not formally signed back on as Britney's manager, is currently producing the MTV show Rock the Cradle, which debuts April 3.

This would be adorable if it weren't so downright disgusting.

Hulk Hogan was seen frolicking around Miami Beach with new girlfriend Jennifer McDaniel earlier this week, which would be cute and all. Except for one thing:

McDaniel looks just like Hulk's daughter, Brooke Hogan. Moreover, the former wrestler is cradling Jennifer in this photo like, well, like one would cradle a baby.

Paging celebrity psychologist Dr. Drew Pinsky, Huk Hogan needs an appointment.

Hulk Hogan, Girlfriend

Rock-a-bye Jennifer McDaniel, in Hulk Hogan's arms. When the wind blows, this will continue to be gross...

Ramiele Malubay became Ramiele Malu-BYE last night on American Idol.

The diminutive singer was voted off the show during an emotional evening. As soon as Ryan Seacrest announced her in the bottom three, Ramiele sat on a stool with tears in her eyes.

The Clear Favorite

She was joined in the trio with the lowest number of votes by Kristy Lee Cook - who obnoxiously had made a "Kristy's Seat" sign to signify her unpopular standing on the show - and Brooke White, who was legitimately moved by the end of the night.

"I'm emotional for a variety of reasons," White told Seacrest while she hugged Ramiele and Kristy Lee. "We throw everything we have into this thing here at American Idol and then you watch that "Idol Gives Back" portion and you think, ‘Gosh, that's a whole other meaning of difficult and sad, and then Dolly comes out here and [sings her song] ‘Jesus & Gravity' and it was really amazing."

Have we mentioned lately how much we love Brooke?

We're also major fans of David Cook, who assured viewers his hospital visit from Tuesday night was not big deal.

"I'm cool. I'm not going anywhere," Cook said.

Neither is Kristy Lee, at least not this week.

That's one reality show each for Lauren Conrad's infamous ex-boyfriends!

The Hills' current hottie (and subject of LC's wrath), Brody Jenner, was overheard telling peeps that he was celebrating a new reality show, a testosterone-charged spin-off of The Hills, while partying at the hot L.A. nightclub Goa.

"Brody is in talks with MTV but the details  have not been confirmed," his rep said. Also set to star in the spinoff? Jenner's BFF Frankie Delgado!

No stranger to reality TV, Brody Jenner became a regular on The Hills last season as Spencer Pratt's friend - and love interest to Lauren Conrad ... who, let's face it, is the only reason we're talking about either of these two guys right now.

Brody also was on The Princes of Malibu, however, and has recently guested on E!'s Keeping up with the Kardashians. The reason for that? His dad, Olympic decathlon winner Bruce Jenner, is married to Kim Kardashian's mom.

Meanwhile, Lauren Conrad's other notorious former beau - on both The Hills and Laguna Beach - Jason Wahler, is also headed back to reality TV!

"We start filming in April. It'll be the real-life version of Entourage," Jason said, adding self-deprecatingly, "I've got a lot going on: auditions, movies, parties... It's not exactly the same as Entourage â€" I'm not making $10 million a movie!"

The show will air on VH1, supposedly, but when it does, don't expect to see a lot of Jason's Wahler's fiancée, Katja Decker-Sadowski.

"Most of my relationship will be private," the recovering alcoholic, who was arrested four times in four different states in 2007, says.

"I didn't want to make Newlyweds."

Whoa! Slow down there OK! Fans must consider the source of this story. As usual, our favorite celebrity news publication is stretching the truth.

"It looked like Britney had lost 15 pounds in four weeks," a source told OK! Magazine. That quote is the entire basis for the cover below.

Oh, and the picture of Britney looking so thin and youthful? It was taken five years ago. Yes, it was from a 2003 shoot with Glamour. Way to go OK!

Of course, we will give them this much - the bloat, the ratty hair and the puffy face, along with the pink wig and trademark vadge of courage - are all gone.

In their place? A slimmer, fresh-faced Britney Spears with a shiny smile on her face and (dare we say) some determination in her step!

So how did she do it?

"Britney's a pro at losing weight fast," a Britney Spears pal tells OK! "She can drop 7-10 pounds in just two weeks."

Losing Weight

Well, at least Britney Spears has come a long way in three months.

Sources say Spears - who may be re-hiring manager Larry Rudolph - has given up old, unhealthy weight loss habits, like popping laxatives and diet pills.

The 5-foot-4 star has also replaced soda and fast food with five, smaller protein packed meals a day. Doing so has enabled her to shed pounds.

To complement her healthier eating habits, Britney works out regularly as well, although you probably won't jogging or pumping iron. The recovering pop star enjoys daily dance workouts at L.A.'s Millennium Dance Complex.

"I don't like to work out because my legs get bulky," Britney said in a past interview. "Dancing makes me leaner."

We're glad she's feeling better these days, we really are. Hey, she's gotta fit in that bridesmaid dress for Jamie Lynn Spears' wedding, right?

Rumor has it (pun... intended!) that aspiring actress and celebuspawn Rumer Willis has been crushing hard on young Dirt hunk Ryan Eggold.

"They went out for the first time a few weeks ago," a friend of Rumer Willis and Ryan Eggold tells celebrity news magazine Life & Style.

Rumer Willis: Beautiful

"They've been keeping it quiet, but he's definitely on her radar. They usually hang out at each other's houses," says the friend.

Rumer Willis and Ryan Eggold: A cute couple, right?

Thanks to family hook-ups, Rumer Willis will soon have a guest role on Miss Guided, a comedy series produced by Rumer's step-dad, Ashton Kutcher.

Ryan Eggold had been on The Young and the Restless, Entourage, Out of Jimmy's Head, Brothers & Sisters and Veronica Mars prior to Dirt.

Sorry, Sanjaya Malakar. Your final fan has abandoned you.

Remember Ashley Ferl, American Idol followers? She was the adorable/insane little girl who cried hysterically over Sanjaya during every one of his performances last season.

Final 12

Well, it looks like Ferl is as fickle about who she cheers for as Lindsay Lohan is about who she sleeps with.

Last night, Ashley was in attendance at the show - and sobbed uncontrollably through the performance of Jason Castro. Looks like she just loves guys with weird hair.

Ashley Ferl loves Jason Castro. But do viewers? Will he survive the latest round of American Idol cuts?

The Hollywood Gossip staff is proud to bring you Tale of the Tape, in which we break down prospective matchups within the celebrity world you probably never considered. Because they are pointless, and above all, not real.

Perez Hilton likes to slander Barack Obama by pointing out the political views of people the candidate knows, but who aren't running for any office.

You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep, the infamous celebrity gossip blogger states. The rotund one is right, but only to a point.

Political candidates in particular have thousands of donors and past associates. How can you be accountable for the actions and remarks of every single one?

Right, Perez? Or should we assume, by virtue of this picture of you and Sam Lutfi, that you are in favor of verbally abusing and drugging Britney Spears?

Perez Hilton keeps company with the likes of Sam Lutfi, among other seedy characters. But we don't judge the celebrity gossip aficionado because of it.

There's nothing wrong with endorsing a candidate, whether it's Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain (as Heidi Montag just did), or any other.

But slinging mud, drudging up old issues and presenting biased views may cross the line. It's one thing to draw penises on photos of attention-loving celebrities, and quite another to take such liberties bashing presidential candidates.

Of course, this isn't the first time Perez Hilton has shown his penchant for biased, one-sided reporting; nor is it the first time The Hollywood Gossip has called him out over it, as his Wikipedia page even states.

Maybe the blue-haired blunder will respond and take The Hollywood Gossip up on our challenge to a debate on the candidates and issues this time!

Be on the lookout, Nancy Shevell. A wooden leg might be flying in your direction any day now.

A friend of Heather Mills has told Great Britain's The Daily Mirror that the world's best known, one-legged digger of gold is far from pleased about Shevell's relationship with Paul McCartney.

Paul and Nancy

"Heather's threatening to call and explain the dangers of dating a Beatle," the friend said, claiming Mills thinks she'd be doing this for Nancy's own good. "She had hell with the public hating her and reckons Nancy could too. Heather genuinely thinks she's doing Nancy a good turn."

Beware, Nancy Shevell. Heather Mills is on the prowl.

Moreover, this close, loyal pal of Mills says the former Dancing with the Stars contestant went nuts after hearing about Shevell and McCartney's recent vacation.

"She went ballistic when she found out. She's also terrified they're planning a baby - even though Nancy's not far off 50 - and thinks another child will detract from Beatrice."

The altruism of Mills never ceases to impress us. It's obvious she's just worried about Nancy and daughter Beatrice in this situation. What a terrible, no good, selfish, greedy, media-obsessed whore of a woman.
