As Britney Spears prepares to hit the road next week for her second Circus concert tour of North America in less than nine months, the pop star - and mother of two foul-mouthed brats - managed to get her body looking better than ever.

Britney herself is thrilled with her own transformation, according to OK!

A source says that Spears, who flaunted her toned physique in a barely-there white Eres bikini for an August 6 photo shoot in L.A. - just loves her new figure.

“Britney used to hate her body when she looked in the mirror,” a longtime pal of the singer, who is now dating her agent, Jason Trawick, says. “But last week she sent pictures home to [her mom] Lynne and wrote, ‘Look how good I look!’”

Here's Britney looking svelte and sizzling as ever ...

Britney Spears' New Body!

Britney Spears' diet secrets? Work out! Amazing what that will do. Note that this claims she's lost 20 pounds in four weeks, but the "before" picture is 15 months old.

Her looking good may not be news to those of us who follow her career regularly, but if it means a reason to post Britney Spears pictures showing just how good she looks lately, then we suppose we're OK! with this story in the end.

Kate Gosselin broke into tears on the Today Show this week.

But did the reality star go into diva mode off camera?

Vintage Jon and Kate Plus 8

That's what one source claims, though Today denies it.

"We get virtually all of the world's biggest egos coming through here, but Kate Gosselin was one of the most unpleasant I've seen in working here for many years," a supposed Today insider told the Chicago Sun-Times.

The source claims that Kate trashed Meredith Vieira for asking about her relationship with Steve Neild, her bodyguard, and was "swearing like a sailor."

If that were true, Kate certainly did a great job of holding it together on camera - and she's not the type to hold back. Her grating criticism of husband Jon was as central a part of Jon and Kate Plus 8 as their adorable children.

Did Kate Gosselin flip the f*%k out on Meredith Vieira?

It's likely there is nothing to this rumor in the end. A statement from the Today Show regarding these accusations suggests they are all made up.

The statement reads:

"These comments are completely and totally false and are certainly coming from bad sources. Kate Gosselin was a gracious guest on Today and anyone within a thousand feet of her at the show yesterday morning could tell you that."

Moreover, the statement says: "It is unfortunate that a newspaper (the Sun-Times) would run these lies, which couldn't be further from the truth."

So Kate is vindicated. Though we imagine she may swear like a sailor if she reads our story about Jon's apparent promotion of underage drinking.

Ed Swiderski openly talked about having a girlfriend while he was trying to woo The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris, former contestant Wes Hayden says.

"Dave [Good] and I remember Ed saying he had a girlfriend," says Wes, who also was accused of dating (Laurel Kagay) while on the show, to Us Weekly.

"But we are not the kind who are going to run our mouths."

Finalist Reid Rosenthal says some contestants thought from the start that Ed Swiderski, 30, was bad news and "didn't care to hang out with him."

Adds Michael Stagliano, "There was definitely some point where I did think, I'm not going to be best friends with this guy. Ed's a shady character."

The Bachelorette contestants are required to relinquish their cellphones and laptops on the show to keep interaction lively among the participants.

But due to his as a Microsoft consultant, Ed Swiderski "had an agreement" to keep both "because it was imperative for him to have access for work."

This agreement is now coming back to bite the Chicagoan.

Ed Swiderski: Cheater!

HOW HE TRICKED HER: Rather easily, it appears. Poor Jilly Bean.

Adds Jesse Kovacs of his competitor at the time, "Obviously, no one knew he was saying, 'I'm not into [Jillian Harris] and I can't wait to go home.'"

While Ed did some work, he also kept in touch with Lindsey Johnson, whom he was dating at the time, and told he was only going on the show for fun.

He even texted that Harris "wasn't his type," and that he was "not in any way attracted to the chick." Just what every newly-engaged girl wants to hear.

On April 12, three days before he told Jillian Harris he had to leave The Bachelorette to focus on his career, Swiderski emailed Johnson to say "I love you" and declared that he was going to "molest" Lindsey when he got home. Romantic.

Then, after getting engaged to Jillian on the season finale, he banged her again eight days later, according to the scorned Ed Swiderski play thing.

Another woman, Bethany Steffen, says Ed was stringing her along while he was dating Lindsey (and Jillian) and tried to get her in the sack a few days later.

Man, people are really piling it on Ed these past few weeks. Sure, maybe they are all liars, but you don't hear anyone backing Ed up, do you?

Will Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski last?

A new name has surfaced in the Michael Jackson paternity saga, a saga so incredibly weird that it's getting difficult to keep the names straight.

At least this alleged baby mama has only one name (that we know of).

Vintage Michael Jackson

A Mexican nurse named Helena was hand-picked by the late King of Pop to act as surrogate mother to the late star's son Blanket, the Daily Mirror reports.

Blanket (real name Prince Michael Jackson II) was conceived via IVF using the King of Pop's sperm, according to the report, and born on February 21, 2002.

On Blanket's birth certificate, Michael is listed as the father, while the mother’s name is blank. He was born at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, Calif.

The singer's third son was born to Helena, a friend told the Mirror, because the mother of his first two children, Debbie Rowe, had health problems that interfered with any more pregnancies, sending Jackson on a hunt for a new surrogate.

Michael Jackson reportedly paid Helena just $20,000 (?!) for her services, but supplied her with an expense account and a staff of servants at one point.

“He chose Helena because she had a Latino background but she was also a U.S. citizen and had quite fair skin," a friend of Jackson’s told the Mirror.

“He liked her because she was attractive and seemed stable and intelligent. She was a nurse or medical assistant, which he also liked. She was around 5 feet, 4 inches, slim, aged around 30 and had long, dark, straight hair."

"He said she was strait-laced, almost a girl next door type. There were no dramas with her. She knew what she had to do and got on with it.”

A pair of loons who should probably be receiving mental health care, Claire Elisabeth Fields Cruise and Billie Jean Jackson, also claim to be Blanket's mom.

Other rumors have suggested that Pia Bhatti, the mother of Michael's "secret son" Omer Bhatti, was chosen by MJ to carry Blanket. He has many moms.

Elsewhere, Michael is rumored not to have fathered his first two children.

His friends Mark Lester and Arnold Klein - both of whom donated sperm to the singer - have been the subject of paternity rumors regarding Michael Jr. and Paris Jackson.

Looks like a celebration was in order after dissing Kate Major.

Jon Gosselin's hilarious midlife crisis was in full swing as the father of eight partied with some 19-year-olds Tuesday night, according to Perez Hilton.

While the celebrity blogger does not cite any sources for the story, he claims pictures of Jon boozing it up were put on Facebook by fellow revelers.

Teens are inclined to do that, and nothing Jon does would surprise us in the least, but take this with a grain of salt, as we can't really back it up.

The guy is a d-bag, though. We can state that with certainty.

Jon Gosselin likes beer almost as much as dating mediocre girls.

We wonder how Mady and Cara Gosselin will react to seeing this on Facebook when they get old enough to make their own accounts. Or whether they will add Hailey Glassman and Stephanie Santoro as friends and post on their walls.

Nadya Suleman has landed back in Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Bellflower, Calif., a source close to the drain on society reports Wednesday morning.

While the reason for her hospitalization is unknown, the source added that Nadya Suleman is expected to remain there for at least 24-48 hours.

“This is not a big deal and Nadya should be back on her feet in a couple of days” the source told Radar Online. Ah. We can only pray, and hope.

Maybe they can cure her chronic case of siphoning off taxpayers.

Octomom Talking

FERTILITY: Octomom has that going for her. And nothing else.

Nadya Suleman, a single, jobless mom of 14, underwent minor surgery in May. Sadly, that operation have not made her infertile, so the brood may grow yet.

Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage - yes, a two-hour Octomom TV special - will air Wednesday, August 19 on Fox. Set your DVR so you don't miss it.

The program will chronicle the saga of Nadya, who despite having six kids already, got artificially inseminated with eight more and gave birth in January.

Only in America can you have an affair with an underage girl who proceeds to shoot your wife in the face, then sue your ex-wife for defamation of character after she divorces you and publishes a book calling you a sociopath.

That's precisely what Joey Buttafuoco is doing, more than a decade and a half after mistress Amy Fisher put a bullet in his wife Mary Jo Buttafuoco's skull.

She just published Getting It Through My Thick Skull - Why I Stayed, What I Learned, and What Millions of People Involved with Sociopaths Need to Know.

It's an appropriate title for several reasons. But Joey believes Mary Jo's describing and diagnosing him as a "good sociopath" is in her memoir is just unfair.

His lawyer claims: "The injury to Mr. Buttafuoco has been compounded by the publicity tour Ms. Buttafuoco has made to promote her book. She has appeared on numerous TV programs, repeating outrageous statements concerning my client's character."

"These defamatory statements have made Mr. Buttafuoco a pariah in the community, causing him public embarrassment and the loss of business."

Wait ... he had never suffered public embarrassment prior to this? And someone did business with him after Amy Fisher shot Mary Jo in the head?

Joey seeks damages and the removal of the book from the publisher's imprint.

Joey Buttafuoco Mug Shot

Joey Buttafuoco, upstanding citizen, is not about to take this character assassination lightly. The class act says he has suffered greatly as a result of Mary Jo's book.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is hitting back against sexual assault accuser Andrea McNulty, saying she is lying and mentally unstable.

The NFL star's lawyer unloaded serious allegations at McNulty, claiming she bragged about sleeping with Ben and told pals she "hoped" he knocked her up.

In legal documents filed Friday in Washoe County, Nevada, Ben's legal squad went after McNulty's "false and slanderous" claim - and insists she "boasted to her friends and co-workers that she had consensual sexual relations with Mr. Roethlisberger."

On top of Andrea "being happy" about sleeping with him, Roethlisberger claims after the incident, McNulty "was also not afraid or apprehensive about the prospect of an unplanned pregnancy, but expressed that she hoped that she was pregnant."

Ben's portrait of Andrea McNulty only gets worse.

Ben Roethlisberger and Andrea McNulty slept together in July 2008.

Ben blames Andrea McNulty's "alleged problems - lack of job security, need for medical benefits, need for treatment, increasing debt and lack of income" - on her "inability to do her job" at Harrah's Casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada:

"[McNulty's] psychological breakdown appears to be the sad by-product of an affair with a married man whose wife concocted a scheme to have [her] fall in love with a fictional soldier and be abandoned by him to create heartbreak and instability."

The document wasn't just an excuse to bash Andrea McNulty.

Ben's lawyers have requested to move the case out of Washoe County, Nev., "for the convenience of all parties and witnesses and in the interest of justice."

So far, the judge has not ruled on their request. Suffice it to say, Ben denied any wrongdoing in his only public comments since Andrea McNulty filed suit.

Do you believe Andrea's sexual assault allegation?

Katie Price, a.k.a. Jordan, is being accused of ruining the gay wedding she attended over the weekend by unleashing a four-letter rant on stage.

Taking the stage for a karaoke version of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" at the civil partnership of make-up artists Gary Cockerill and Phil Taylor, the 31-year-old model proclaimed that the audience were "all c***s!"

Katie Price and Boobs

Classy. And odd, given the crowd.

A guest interviewed by the Sun (UK) said "the woman is insane."

You won't find many celebrity gossip readers arguing.

"She said she wouldn't sing live because there were too many c***s there who would enjoy hearing her sing off key. She said we were all c***s. Then she said Peter Andre was a f*****g a******e. People walked out. She ruined everything."

Katie Price, her chest and Alex Reid at the wedding.

That about sums it up. Well, that and this: "The couple had their first dance to her miming, but the song did not come on and she was singing to herself."

Security ultimately escorted the busty model off stage.

Her new lover Alex Reid, 34, was said to look "hurt."

In somewhat related Katie Price news, it looks like Peter Andre is on his way to securing the #1 spot in the charts this weekend for his new single.

The apocalypse is near.
