Britney Spears Working Out

"Mom, why'd you pay them lawyers all that money so I could visit you just to ignore me like you always do?"

Verne Troyer's ex is firing back at the 2'8" actor after he accused her of emotional and physical abuse in a $20 million lawsuit filed yesterday.

"This lawsuit is ridiculous and riddled with lie upon lie from Verne Troyer and his camp," Holly Bannon, a rep for Ranae Shrider, said in a statement.

"The claim is, in our opinion, a shamelessly transparent attempt to generate as much publicity as he can from his less than average career in the wake of his most recent failure in The Love Guru."

Now that's a low blow. Even more so than the kind she's used to.

Thursday, lawyers for Verne Troyer said he feared for his safety after Shrider beat him, dropped him and, another time, held him against his will.

Troyer's lawyer said, in what may be the celebrity quote of the year: "When you pick up a 2'8" human being and throw him to the floor, it hurts."

But Ranae Shrider's rep says it's all bogus.

Almost a year ago, rumors were flying that Britney Spears was dating a hunky, shaggy member of her security detail named Daimon Shippen.

The same gossip popped up again this week, this time involving Spears and some dude named Lee, who's apparently one of her bodyguards.

Several celebrity gossip sites suggested Spears has been exchanging bodily fluids with Lee on a regular basis, but the rumors are absolutely not correct, Britney's manager Larry Rudolph told Access Hollywood yesterday.

“There is no truth to this,” Rudolph said. “She's 100% single.”

We're shocked.

Moreover, the man she has been spotted with, Larry says, is not even Britney Spears’ security guard, but a "staff photographer." Wait, wasn't that Adnan Ghalib? And wasn't he sleeping with the boss? We're so confused.

Amy Winehouse is no longer using drugs. According to her mom.

THG NOTE: In related news, Britney Spears has sworn off men.

Winehouse, the acclaimed and troubled singer, was hospitalized earlier this week after suffering a reaction to medication at her north London home with her father, Mitch, claiming his daughter's drink was spiked with ecstasy.

But according to the 24-year-old's mother, Janis Winehouse, the hospital visit was the result of something different - simple human error.

"The truth is that Amy ended up in hospital this week because she mixed up the medication that she's taking to help her come off drugs," she told the UK's Daily Mirror newspaper. "She took a wrong tablet."

Riiiiight. Come on, Janis and Mitch Winehouse. You can't even coordinate your ridiculous cover stories? That's Lying 101, for crying out loud.

What Your Step

The long-awaited reunion of Amy Winehouse and a street light.

Janis' absurd comments only got worse - Amy's recent diagnosis with lung disease has "encouraged her to steer clear of recreational drugs."

"I really don't think she's using now," she claimed. "Being diagnosed with the early stage of emphysema was a real jolt. A wake-up call."

So much so that she's only pictured smoking 2-3 times a day instead of the usual 20. Such enormous progress cannot be understated.

Oh, wait, that's Candace Cameron of Full House fame! Damn, girl. More than a decade after Full House ended its run, D.J. Tanner is still so fly.

What's Candace been up to while Jodie has been hosting Pants Off Dance Off, getting f*%ked up on crystal meth and marrying Cody Herpin?

Not a lot. She's been married to former NHL star Valeri Bure for 12 years (!) and has cranked out three beautiful celebrity babies with him.

An evangelical Christian, Candace Cameron is currently producing and starring in The Krew, a half-hour awareness video aimed at helping children avoid and/or deal with dangerous situations in everyday life. So nice to see her!

It's a Full House reunion for Candace Cameron and Jodie Sweetin!

Actress Heather Matarazzo — known for her role as Lilly Moscovitz opposite Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries — is tying the knot. With a girl!

Matarazzo's rep tells E! News that the 25-year-old actress has proposed to her girlfriend, Carolyn Murphy.

"It was really cute. First Heather proposed to Carolyn, and then Carolyn proposed to her," the rep says, adding that "it was love at first sight" when the two met a little more than a year ago and began dating.

Heather Matarazzo and Carolyn Murphy aren't the only stars heading down the aisle since California struck down a law banning gay marriage.

Ellen DeGeneres said she and Portia de Rossi will wed soon. Star Trek's George Takei is also planning a September wedding with his partner.

Will Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson be next?

Shia LaBeouf may have a drinking problem. But the Transformers star doesn't have any issues with cuteness!

Disney star Selena Gomez went on The Morning Show With Mike and Juliet this morning and said the young actor was the love of her life. Sort of.

"Right now, my crush is Shia LaBeouf!" she said. "He is cute and a great actor."

Selena Gomez is totally crushing on Shia LaBeouf.

Don't think you're getting Selena in the sack, though, Shia. The singer sports a purity ring.

"It's something I made a promise to myself about," Gomez said.

Do you believe that Selena Gomez is a virgin?

Both Rob Lowe and Jessica Gibson had important parts of their cases thrown out in court - and if you ask their attorneys, they both won.

The judge threw out Jessica's retaliation claim, but the judge also tossed out four Lowe claims - one being an allegation of defamation.

Jessica Gibson's attorney, Gloria Allred, said in a statement:

"He lost the heart of his case, which is defamation, and we are permitted to proceed with the heart of our case, which was and still is our allegation that Rob Lowe sexually harassed Jessica Gibson."

Lowe's attorney, Larry Stein, told celebrity news site TMZ:

"We are delighted with the court's ruling today. It removed the retaliation claim, which Ms. Allred had been focusing on and left in six claims, which allows us to prosecute every claim we've made."

Well, that settles that. Only not at all. She still says he spanked it in front of her, he says she skanked it in front of everyone, etc.

Former nanny Jessica Gibson is suing Rob Lowe and his wife.
