Looking a bit melancholy or just straight up confused as to where the hell she is at the moment, Britney Spears heads to her salon for a nighttime hair appointment.

As she walked to the Hollywood salon, the star's hands never left her hair. Was she having weave issues? Second-guessing the transformation about to take place?

Could she simply not remember where she was going? Whether she turned off the coffee? Or remembered to DVR The Secret Life of the American Teenager?

One never knows with Britney ...

  • Confused as F*%k
  • A Real Head-Scratcher

Wait ... where am I right now? Ding dang, life is confusin' ...

Fortunately, she looked a bit more like her old self - in more ways than one - when she emerged several hours later. Those peeps did quite a number on her hair!

Let's just say that she looks nothing like the Britney Spears pictures above, and more like Brit circa 2000. Follow the jump to see her hairstyle transformation ...

Jake Pavelka is down to two women on The Bachelor, with his final gut-wrenching decision awaiting viewers Monday night on an emotional season finale.

Personality-wise, Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi could not be more different. But they do have this in common: Ex-husbands who say they're nuts!

We've already heard Vienna's ex-husband describe her lying, cheating, bank account draining ways. Now Tenley's ex is out to warn Jake about her too.

Ryan Natividad basically claims Tenley is not as sweet as she seems, but rather a prude, manipulative bitch who is "infatuated with becoming famous."

The police officer, who she says was unfaithful, says Tenley Molzahn aspired to be an L.A. Lakers cheerleader and America's Next Top Model contestant.

Would Jake Pavelka be making a mistake with Tenley Molzahn?

"Tenley is a great actress, a master of manipulation,” Ryan says. “She’s far from the demure and innocent person she pretends to be on The Bachelor.

He also strongly refutes rumors that he ever cheated on her, as Tenley has claimed numerous times as Jake has courted her on the ABC reality series.

"Tenley always plays the victim, like a broken record," says Natividad, who notes that she withheld sex from him too. "It’s pathetic, and she’s pathetic.”

Jake already has Tenley's father's blessing, but should he beware? If The Bachelor spoilers we've read are to be believed, something may turn him off ...

But who do you think Jake should pick on The Bachelor finale?

Tiger Woods is hiding the real reason he returned to rehab, according to the National Enquirer, which alleges he's in treatment for drugs, not sex addiction.

THG NOTE: As ridiculous as this sounds, one most remember that:

  • The Enquirer outed Tiger and Rachel Uchitel. That was true.
  • The Enquirer is being considered for a Pulitzer Prize (no, really, they are) for coverage of the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter sex and love child scandal.

According to the venerable celebrity news publication, Tiger has checked into The Meadows treatment center in Wickenburg, Ariz., to battle his addictions.

To prescription medications.

Woods made no mention of his drug habit in his 13-minute apology speech, and insiders say wife Elin refused to participate in his sex addiction therapy.

We'll see about that, but "In therapy, Tiger blamed a lot of his behavior on his drug addiction, saying drugs were responsible for impairing his judgment."

The golfer entered The Meadows after therapists who treated him for sex addiction at the Gentle Path program in Hattiesburg, Miss., recommended him.

"After Gentle Path, Tiger traveled to Arizona for his interview at The Meadows, which is better equipped to handle rehab for drug addiction and depression."

While calling Tiger a drug addict may be sensationalistic, he was allegedly under the influence of medication when he crashed his car Thanksgiving night.

He also liked to rail Rachel Uchitel on Ambien. Just saying.

Troubled actor Gary Coleman is being treated at a Los Angeles area hospital after suffering a seizure on the set of The Insider Friday, the show itself reports.

The star has "received immediate medical attention by Drew Pinsky, M.D. who was sitting next to him at the time," according to The Insider. Yes, seriously.

"He was transferred in stable condition to a local hospital."

Last month, the 41-year-old was briefly hospitalized in L.A. after he suffered what he called "seizure activity." He was also arrested for domestic violence.

Gary Coleman has a history of health problems.

It's not clear if Gary's wife Shannon is with him at this time. The ailing Coleman was born with failed kidneys and underwent two transplants before age 14.

At one stage in his life, he underwent dialysis four times a day to survive.

It's unclear if his recent seizures are kidney-related, but regardless, it's good to hear things appear stable. Here's hoping Gary recovers fully and quickly.

When three reality TV D-listers collide in one photo, there's no telling what will happen. Except us asking which one of 'em you'd most like to ... you know.

On the left, Jersey Shore star Angelina Pivarnick, a.k.a. the Kim Kardashian of Staten Island, a.k.a. the girl who quit after one episode and now regrets it.

In the middle, Real Housewives of New Jersey prostitution whore Danielle Staub. On the right, former Living Lohan star and worst mom ever Dina Lohan.

They were all at some event this week. What it was, we can't recall right now. A reality TV convention for washed up non-stars? Who's to say. But tell us ...

The list of drugs in Brittany Murphy's system when she died have been released by the L.A. County Coroner's office today, and it's not a pretty picture.

According to the report, "Multiple medications were present in the blood, with elevated levels of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, and chlorpheniramine."

"L-methamphetamine was also present."

The report says, "It should be noted that the pattern of use of these medications suggest treatment of symptoms of a cold or other respiratory infection."

"Acetaminophen and hydrocodone are components of Vicodin. Chlorpheniramine is considered an active ingredient in some over-the-counter medications."

The late Brittany Murphy with Simon Monjack, who she wed in 2007.

"L-methamphetamine is a component of some inhalers."

The Coroner believes that Brittany had pneumonia and tried self-medicating with prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs ... and it ultimately proved fatal.

The report notes that "Possible adverse physiological effects of elevated levels from these medications cannot be discounted, especially in a weakened state."

"Therefore the manner of death is Accident."

Simon Monjack, you're in the clear. Except for trying to bilk people through the fake foundation you set up in Brittany's name. That was real shady, man.

Never one to look anything but stylish, even when casual, Hayden Panettiere went last night to the Step-and-Repeat, presented by Elijah Blue and Kantor Gallery.

For those hoping for a Wladimir Klitschko sighting, we're sorry to disappoint. The giant Ukrainian boxing champ, who's dating Hayden, was nowhere to be found.

Instead, Harry Morton, her previous rumored boyfriend, was with her (albeit not shown here). Bummer. Here's Panettiere, though, in all her cute glory ...

Hot Hayden P.

Not Hayden's best picture ever. But we love the bag!

Her once-hit show, Heroes, may be on the verge of cancellation, but it's not slowing Hayden down. Our girl was recently on the cover of Self magazine and played a huge role in the recent Oscar-nominated documentary The Cove.

Always good to see our favorite 20-year-old out and about in Hollywood. Click to enlarge more Hayden Panettiere pictures from last night ...

If you thought the Rozlyn Papa sex tape scandal was the most unexpected story in the adult genre today, wait 'til you read this N.Y. Daily News item on 50 Cent.

Lastonia Leviston claims the rapper posted her personal sex tape online, dubbed in his own commentary and spliced himself into the action in various costumes.

She filed papers in Manhattan Supreme Court saying that she and Maurice Murray "videotaped themselves engaging in sexually explicit activities" in June 2008.

Leviston claims she requested Murray destroy the tape and that he agreed, but he allegedly "transferred or sold" it to 50 Cent instead for reasons unknown.

"Ooh, she grindin', is she a grinder?" 50 says while a lingerie-clad Lastonia Leviston romps around on a leather couch with a man whose face is blurred out.

This is 50

50 Cent - who takes on the "Pimpin' Curly" persona in the video (above) - is accused of having posted the raunchy, 13-minute sex tape on several websites.

The reason? Beef with rival rapper Rick Ross, obviously. He refers to the girl in the X-rated video as a "nasty b----" and describes her as Ross' baby mama.

"Ricky don't know how to do that!" Fiddy taunts after a man in red boxer shorts (presumably Murray) bends over Leviston and begins "smackin' dat a$$."

Ross and 50 have a long-running dispute in which they've dissed each other in videos and songs. In the sex tape, he mocks the size of Ross's manhood.

"Yeah man, nice little slut!" the rapper says, quite originally.

Leviston, who wears little more than heels and lingerie during the sex tape, is seeking damages for emotional distress and unauthorized use of her image.

Hey, all's well in hip-hop beefs. As long as he left Shaniqua Tompkins out of this. We don't need any more restraining orders or houses burned down.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s senior adviser and spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, resigned today. Who will craft Sarah's brilliant press releases now?!

Stapleton, a Palin confidante since 2006, said she is stepping down from her $96,000/year gig to spend more time with her 2-year-old daughter, Isabella.

Since the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, Stapleton has been one of only a few aides maintained and trusted by Palin - to everyone's detriment.

In recent years, Stapleton was a key strategic adviser and the pipeline for anyone seeking Palin’s attention, including Republican officials and reporters.

A total loose cannon at best, and shameless attack dog at worst, Stapleton helped transform Palin into a major political player. A very polarizing one.

Sarah Palin will be better off without her chief crony.

Meg Stapleton has also blessed those of us in the celebrity gossip world with near constant absurd fodder. Some of her most prominent career highlights:

  • Claiming any criticism of Sarah Palin is sexist
  • Bashing the living hell out of David Letterman
  • Trading weekly public barbs with Levi Johnston
  • Reaching out to embattled nut job Carrie Prejean
  • Trying to cash in on Bristol Palin and her baby
  • Sending John McCain's entire staff to the cardiologist

One senior McCain advisor quoted by the Huffington Post called her both "incompetent and a bad person," and one who "sacrificed integrity for ambition."

A woman whose media instincts were amateurish even on her best day, Stapleton will be missed by those of us who revere her ability to generate gossip.

Someone with serious political ambitions should never, ever hire her though.
