With a pair of involuntary hospitalizations, run-ins with shady managers and lovers, being done wheelbarrow style by J.R. Rotem, and enduring a long stint in which she eschewed pants, Britney Spears had a rough go of it for a time.

Yet with a successful new album, Circus, and a nationwide tour packing in crowds all across the country, she's definitely back on top. But was she ever gone?

Before and after Britney's Pittsburgh concert on Friday night, most of her ardent fans agreed that, comeback or not, Spears was on top of her game.

"I don't think she ever went away," said 21-year-old Hugh Stumpp. "She's on top of the world right now and she's continued to grow and it's great."

"Her huge tour comeback just shows how great of an artist she really is and shows how she can bounce back from anything," added Steve Delong, 20.

Whether they're wearing custom "It's Britney B!tch" t-shirts or defending her on "jealous" fan sites, it's obvious that many supporters never left Spears' side.

"Everyone just goes through a rough patch," said fan Danielle DeRuschi, 20. "If you like her then you stand up for her and you just follow her through the end."

She's definitely returning the favor, too, right? Well, try telling that to the popular Britney fan site currently in the process of being shut down by her attorneys.

In any case, no matter the obstacles in her path, the blonde singer has once again taken the world by storm and established herself as the icon of a generation.

The Hollywood Gossip is nothing if not professional.

Despite our well-publicized feud with fellow celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton, we're willing to put feelings aside in order to deliver news and photos to our readers. That's what our job is all about.

Hilton turned 31 over the weekend and celebrated the milestone like only he can: by throwing himself a lavish birthday party at The Viper Room in Los Angeles. Only the least talented of the useless celebs best of the best were in attendance.

Here's a shot of Kim Kardashian at the celebration, for example. She may have left Reggie Bush at home, but the reality TV star didn't forget to bring her cleavage:

Going Stag

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag - who have remained relatively silent over the last few months - were also spotted at the event.

Without bloggers such as Perez, this couple would be forced to make a living in ways that don't include simply posing for photos at the beach.

After a busy day of bottle feedings, diaper changes and firing free nurses for her 14 children, Nadya Suleman ran one final errand on Thursday night: She and her friend drove over to pick up octuplet babies No. 5 and 6 from the hospital.

"They're both calm and quiet," Suleman said.

"I'm really excited to get them home."

Doctors at the hospital handed over brothers Makai (5 lbs., pounds, 5 oz.) and Jeremiah (5 lbs., 14 oz.) to Suleman at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

They arrived home a half hour later, wrapped in blankets and sleeping.

To celebrate the octuplets' 2-month birthday, a nanny working for the drain on society (and obviously funded by taxpayers, not any sort of Octo-income) baked cupcakes, which Suleman's six older children reportedly devoured.

That's right, she had six effing kids before she was Octomom.

It's been a busy couple of months for Nadya Suleman, a.k.a. Octomom. What does she have up her sleeve for her next desperate plea for attention? Nine kids?

The calm scene at Suleman's residence in La Habra was a contrast to the circus-like atmosphere that unfolded last week when the first two octuplets came home.

At that time, adozen police officers had to seal off the streets around Nadya Suleman's home to keep crowds away. Baby No. 7 is due home in the next few days.

Click below to enlarge some pics of Octomom shopping over the weekend with two of her older kids. It's pretty much as awesome and exciting as it sounds:

Kendra Wilkinson is growing sick of the hype. While the model is rarely one to shun attention, she just wants to get her wedding day over with.

"We're ready just to get married and ready for our lives together," Wilkinson told People, concerning the state of mind of herself and fiance Hank Baskett. "I'm just really excited to be his wifey and he's excited to be my hubby."

The bride-to-be does have a lot to look forward to, of course.

"There are a lot of things that are exciting – the destination of the Playboy Mansion, and having Hef be there, and all the people who love me," she said.

Switching gears, Kendra said she does have one regret about her marriage: the planning has prevented her from helping Holly Madison on Dancing with the Stars.

The fellow, former Girl Next Door has reportedly been seeking ass-shaking assistance from Wilkinson.

"She wanted me to show her how to shake her a--. I tried to find the time, and I wanted to so bad, but I couldn't. She texts me all the time: 'Show me how to shake my a-- – PLEASE!'"

Looks like former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is following in O.J. Simpson's footsteps by shopping a book about his rise from poverty to stardom and the misadventures that landed one of football's greatest talents behind bars.

A proposed memoir of Vick's rise from poverty to stardom would likely be an attempt to show the NFL that he's sorry enough to be let back in the league.

Vick is due to be granted early release from federal prison this year after being convicted in a dogfighting probe. He'll have served nearly two years.

Will the NFL give Michael Vick another chance?

Sounds crazy, but if he can still play, it's pretty to remaining suspended forever... just ask Pacman Jones. That guy always turns up again on some team no matter how many thugz get shot when he decides to makes it rain.

There's still hope, Michael Vick!

Lucky for him. Apparently he's a real high-roller with bills to pay and a shortage of cash. The license plate factory doesn't have the cachet it once did. Gotta get cracking!

Whomever ghostwrites Vick's memoir has a difficult task ahead to make him appear sympathetic, but hey, at least he didn't kill two people and rob another like O.J.

Okay, he didn't say d-bag specifically, but the way John Mayer uses Twitter, you’d think he would have nothing but praise for the social networking tool.

But instead, he thinks it's for tools.

Amanda Bynes Twit Pic

"It’s inherently silly and it’s inherently dumb," the singer told E! last week at the One Splendid Evening benefit for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation aboard the Carnival Splendor cruise ship in San Pedro, Calif.

"If you really think that Twitter is the pathway to spiritual enlightenment, well... It’s one step away from sending pictures of your poop."

If it's so stupid, why does John Mayer himself Twitter all the time?

"I've always communicated at a high level as best I can whether it's Twitter, Napster or message boards or wherever," the pretentious douchebag said.

"I don't have a devotion to Twitter. I didn't sell out to Twitter. You do Twitter until everybody gets off of Twitter and it's something else you go try out."

What a moron. No wonder Jennifer Aniston gave him an ultimatum. The sad thing is, rumor has it he actually chose to keep Twittering over dating Jennifer.

What is wrong with the world?

As his daughter's legal conservator, Jamie Spears will do anything to protect her. But is he taking his court-appointed powers too far?

As owner and webmaster of popular Britney Spears fan site BreatheHeavy.com, Jordan Miller has spent the past five years supporting the troubled star.

It's ironic, then, that he's about to be shut down by the pop singer herself - or at least the powers that be who control every aspect of her existence.

While Miller asserts that the sole purpose of the website is "to support the icon of our generation, Britney Spears, and to continuously stick by her through good and bad," Spears' father Jamie has taken legal action over some of the content.

"I have been battling the conservatorship Britney is currently placed under for months now," Miller wrote to fans on the site's home page Friday.

Jamie Spears does not mess around.

"When I did not conform to demands Britney’s management and father, Jamie Spears, recently put upon BreatheHeavy to stay quiet, they became angry and malicious, launching, what I feel is an unjust attack, against me and my website."

He received a legal notice from Jamie Spears' lawyers pressuring him to dismantle the site by 3 p.m. PST Friday, or face an injunction, claiming they will pursue legal action courtesy of Jamie, who is allowed to do so as her conservator.

Chalk up another few hundred grand in legal fees.

Miller also wrote that Brad Rose, a lawyer representing Spears in this case, told him in a phone call that "you are an uber-fan who’s gone a little too far."

This might be the funniest story we've ever heard.

Vince Shlomi, the pitchman best known for screaming about the incredible soaking power of the ShamWow dish rag, was arrested last month for allegedly punching a hooker in the face.

According to The Smoking Gun, Shlomi was hanging out in Miami Beach when a prostitute named Sasha Harris propositioned him for "straight sex." Shlomi paid her $1,000 for the promised act.

For Vince Shlomi's sake, we hope the ShamWow soaks up blood caused by the clenched jaw of a hooker.

When he kissed Harris, however, she suddenly "bit his tongue and would not let go," according to reports.

What's a corporate shill to do from there? Shlomi punched Harris several times until she released her grip.

Bleeding, Shlomi proceeded to run to the hotel lobby, where security called the police. Harris refused to cooperate with officers, who recovered $930 from her purse.

Prosecutors have declined to file formal charges against Shlomi. They probably couldn't stop laughing long enough to fill out any paperwork.
