If you thought Britney Spears did nothing but spin by the mall, go to Starbucks, get new tattoos and make pit stops at area gas stations ... you'd be right. Mostly.

According to reports, the star has actually made progress on a new album, which would be her first since the smash hit Circus came out nearly two years ago.

Three songs are done and she loves them. Spears has also gotten a really positive reaction to her recent appearance on Glee, which has led to similar offers.

OMG Where AM I

HIT THE STUDIO, Y'ALL: Somehow, Britney squeezes recording sessions in between her obligatory Starbucks runs. We can't wait to hear the results of those trips.

No word yet on when the new album will come out, but hey, it's pretty much a given that we'll actually hear this someday ... unlike Amy Winehouse's "upcoming" effort.

Danielle Staub has narrowly avoided the worst day of her life.

The psychotic reality star has reached a settlement with ex-husband Kevin Maher, the day before she was scheduled to be deposed as part of Maher's defamation suit against allegations that he played Russian Roulette inside Staub's vagina and murdered her dog.

Red Carpet Danielle

In anticipation of Staub answering questions under oath about these accusations, Maher had told the world he would destroy Danielle on October 5. Instead, he just took her money quietly.

The terms of the settlement are confidential, but a source confirms that cash was involved, while Maher told TMZ:

"The matter was resolved to the satisfaction of both parties... It's interesting that the case gets settled the day before Danielle was supposed to be deposed... it was going to be the worst day of her life."

When you're someone like Danielle Staub, isn't everyday the worst day of your life?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns to Bravo tonight with two new cast members and one old nose job.

NeNe Leakes previewed both in a recent interview with TV Guide, going into detail about Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey, among other topics:

On Parks: I knew Phaedra before...  We went to the same high school. I'm a little bit older. When we were in school - and I can say this because she told me this herself - she would say to me, "I've always looked up to you. I've always admired you." I was very popular in high school. Once she was on this show, though? She never really talked to me or spoke to me. It was strange. She had nothing at all to say to me. I felt like there was some type of jealousy there.

NeNe Leakes just wants to be a black woman, alright?!?

On her nose job: A lot of what you may have heard is just [rumor]. I speak very openly about it on our show, both what I have done and what I have not done. I tell it like it is. I don't have anything to hide. And for the record, I am not against plastic surgery. I believe that any woman that wants to do anything or fix anything that bothers her - if she's doing it for herself - I'm all for it.

Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison has a lot of explaining to do.

With Brad Womack back for a second stint as The Bachelor, having notoriously nixed both DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft on the Season 11 finale, members of the show's fan base are skeptical at best, and up in arms at worst.

Harrison told TV Guide why we should give him a shot, though:

Hot Brad Womack

On the idea coming to fruition: "Brad called us [a year ago] wanting to come back and our reaction was: We're not sure it's right. [But] we didn't blow him off."

"At the same time, producers talking to Brad said, "This guy is for real, we believe in him." The timing seemed perfect. It's not going to be Chris L. What do we do?"

On why Chris Lambton isn't the guy: "Ali's season ended phenomenally with Chris L. as the No. 2 guy and our immediate thought was that Chris L.'s the guy."

"The more he kept thinking about it, he realized he wasn't going to be right for it. A great guy, which Chris Lambton is, doesn't necessarily make a great bachelor."

"I think he realized it, we realized it, and we [went] our separate ways."

Don't worry, Robsten fans: a bushy beard has not prevented Robert Pattinson from nuzzling close to Kristen Stewart.

The couple was spotted at Soho House in West Hollywood on Saturday night, as a witness told E! News the pair was in serious danger of a citation from the PDA police:

As Edward

"They were staring at each other throughout dinner and kept stealing quick kisses from one another during the night. Rob's arm was around her for most of dinner and they kept looking at each other and giggling throughout the evening. They are definitely into each other."

Doesn't sound like a relationship in trouble, does it?

Gonas is totally a go!

After weeks of keeping their relationship under wraps, Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene were spotted out multiple times last week, always holding hands and looking cozy with one another. The interactions make sense, giving the feelings between the adorable pair.

  • Gonas!
  • A Hug for Joe

Hand holding, hugging and hotness: A day in the life of Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene.

"[Joe] is head over heels for [Ashley]," a source tells People. "He thinks she is down-to-earth and absolutely beautiful. He hasn't been this into a girl in a long time."

While this insider remained mum on seemingly premature engagement rumors, he did confirm that Ashley took Joe to Florida to meet her parents recently and, overall, "they want to spend as much time together as possible."

We'd feel the same way if we were dating someone that looked like Joe Jonas or Ashley Greene.

Late last week, R&B singer Mario was arrested for assault against his mother.

With his client free on bail, the artist's attorney spoke on the incident over the weekend and acknowledged that a confrontation took place. But he cited the drug history of Mario's mom (Shawntia Hardaway) as its basis.

"Anyone who has waged the battle to save loved ones from the forces of drugs knows the irrational behavior that almost always accompanies their actions," said Hassan Murphy. "Despite the allegations, Mario remains committed to supporting his mother."

Police responded to Hardaway's call on Friday and found an apartment in disarray. They booked her son on charges of second degree assault after Shawntia accused him of pushing her in the chest.

Murphy referred to this "unfortunate incident between a loving son and a mother" as something that happens when one side struggles "with a devastating addiction."

Khloe Kardashian is not pregnant. In fact, despite what the tabloids may scream on their covers, no one in this attention-starved family is knocked up.

Still, Khloe has made it clear she wants a baby... as long as God is down with that, and as long as it doesn't interfere with her goal of becoming skinnier than most science class skeletons.

Speaking to Us Weekly last week, Kardashian outlined the three reasons why she's afraid to be pregnant. They included:
