Free Britney

Free Britney

Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.

  • Two ex-husbands and the many, many men who came after.
  • Those wild, crazy nights and trips to clubs with no pants.
  • Holding little Jayden James hostage with Sam Lutfi as a SWAT team broke down the bathroom door and took her away on a gurney.

Whether these items will be in it, we can't say. But Britney Spears is said to be close to signing a multi-million publishing deal to give a no-holds-barred account of her wild, crazy career and personal life, according to the UK's Mirror.

Britney Spears, 27, has supposedly been signed by an agent and will "put the pen to paper" following her sell-out world tour, which kicks off March 3. She was supposedly writing a tell-all book back in 2007, but who's counting.

"There have been numerous unofficial biographies printed about Britney Spears, but she's never agreed to pen her own - until now," says a source.

"And some of the stories she's got are going to be absolute dynamite. She's kept diaries so there's nothing she'll leave out unless she wants to."

"If the deal goes ahead she will write between 3-5 books throughout the next decade - it's one of the most lucrative book deals in showbiz history.

"Britney Spears will talk frankly about growing up, rising to worldwide fame and how it nearly all went off the rails. It'll be a gripping read."

Gripping, eh? Wonder if that means she will talk about how J.R. Rotem gripped her whilst going to town wheelbarrow style. That's a tough position.



Kelly Rutherford, who plays Lily van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl (and whose character is the basis for the hit show's upcoming spinoff), claims her estrabged husband is ominous, violent and bad news for their two-year-old son, Hermes.

Rutherford just filed legal papers that the judge will consider tomorrow in a hearing. Rutherford's husband, Daniel Giersch, wants the judge to prohibit his soon-to-be ex-wife from taking two-year-old Hermes to New York to film Gossip Girl.

Rutherford claims Giersch has gotten into big arguments with her, in one case allegedly coming at her. She says he's an avid kickboxer and she's "intimidated by him."

She also says he's threatened to "teach her a lesson" by taking Hermes. Kelly Rutherford, who is four months pregnant with the couple's second child, says it's gotten so bad she called the cops twice and he's been forced to leave.

Yikes. Giersch claims Rutherford can't be a real mom because her Gossip Girl schedule is insane. She says it's just not true. More to come tomorrow ...



Jennifer Hudson's estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour, has pleaded not guilty in the murders of the singer's mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

Balfour, 27, entered his plea to charges of first-degree murder and home invasion Tuesday at Cook County Criminal Court in Chicago. Before doing so he nodded to members of his family in the courtroom, The Associated Press reports.

He is being held without bail. He is due in court again January 27.

The estranged husband of Jennifer Hudson's sister, Julia Hudson, William Balfour was arrested in connection to the three grisly murders in December.

William Balfour Mug Shot, Reloaded

Hudson's mother Darnell Donerson, 57, and brother Jason Hudson, 29, were found shot to death in the family's Chicago home on October 24.

The body of Julian King, 7, was found three days later.

Prosecutors had claimed that Balfour, considered the prime suspect from very early on in the investigation, was upset that Julia Hudson was dating another man and that his jealously may have played a role in the crime. The gift of a car is also at issue.

Jennifer Hudson is set to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl on February 1, and is also slated to perform at the upcoming Grammy Awards.

The Hollywood Gossip's weekly recap of The Bachelor is a highly editorialized rundown of some of the highlights and lowlights from last night's episode, with points / scores awarded or deducted as we see fit. Let's get on with it:

Stephanie's daughter Sophia is so cute. Plus 4, because while this is super cheesy and surely edited far too much, she and Jason Mesnick do have some chemistry, and one does get the impression she would love to merge families.

Bachelor Wedding

Quote of the Night: "Having a week... of not having people praise God that I'm in their life... has been driving me crazy." - Megan. Minus 15 on principle.

Quote of the Night Runner-Up: "If you don't feel a connection to me, who do you think you are, God?" - Natalie. Holy crap, what an egotistical b!tch. We're gonna miss her a little bit, we admit, so we'll send her off with a Plus 12.

Lauren says if Megan and Erica are Jason's types, then she clearly is not his type. Because Lauren really knows them - or Jason - that well already. Minus 6.

The rationale of Molly Malaney - not freaking out about not getting a one-on-one date because, she rationalizes, it may mean Jason Mesnick already knows he likes her - is downright smart. What is this girl doing on reality TV?!? Plus 20.

Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa and down-to-earth Molly are emerging as our favorite aspirants - and seriously contenders to win it all on The Bachelor.

Melissa Rycroft really had a breast reduction? There are women starving in Ethiopia who don't have any boobs at all! Minus 6. But Plus 7 because she's still hot.

Megan says she will stand in the middle of the street and be casted, naked, if it will help someone else. She also says she is a role model. Plus 4.

Best bear story of the evening: Natalie. Plus 8.

$1 million in diamonds in this economy? Come on, ABC! Minus 19.

This show thrives on cat fights, but Shannon getting physically sick from anxiety - then receiving a rose anyway! - was a first, and will be hard to top. Plus 10. And Plus 10 more because even that did not rattle Chris Harrison. Dude keeps it cool.

TOTAL +29! Unbelievable drama last night. If the names and faces still confuse you, see below for the list of who's in and who's out on The Bachelor...

Roses received: Jillian, Stephanie (pre-rose ceremony); Molly, Lauren, Melissa, Naomi, Shannon, Nikki, Megan (rose ceremony).

Sent packing by Jason Mesnick: Erica, Kari, Natalie.

Amy Winehouse came "close to death" twice last year, says her dad.

Detailing his daughter's low points for the upcoming TV documentary Saving Amy, Mitch Winehouse says that while the celebrity gossip media have been reveling in her downfall, "They didn't see her lying in bed for days in a dark room."

"She was close to death twice. We have been working a lot to get her to where she is right now," said Mitch Winehouse, who now says his daughter is drug-free.

Amy's mother, Janis, also appears in Saving Amy - and is highly critical of Winehouse's husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who announced last week he is divorcing the singer after seeing pics of her with hunky rugby player Josh Bowman.

Amy Winehouse, New Boyfriend

Over the weekend, some British tabloids reported that Amy Winehouse, 25, has now moved from Bowman on to another man while on vacation in St. Lucia.

Mitch Winehouse is quoted in Britain's Daily Telegraph as saying about Blake Fielder-Civil's alleged intention to divorce his daughter:

"I had to call before she heard about it from someone else. She asked, 'Daddy, why does he want to divorce me?' I said, 'You know I don't like him, but I have to admit that your behavior with another man is not what marriage is all about.'"



The year: 1979.

The photo spread: Madonna nude.

Before she was the biggest-selling female pop star of all time, she was just an aspiring model who had no problem taking it all off or eschewing razors.

The nude Madonna photos in question will be auctioned off at Christie's Auction House for an expected $10,000-15,000 a pop, according to reports.

Are you interested? At least in checking out a sampling of these Madonna nude pictures, if not adding them to your office wall on a permanent basis?

Kelli McCarty, Miss USA 1991, is taking the term "disgraced beauty queen" to a new level, starring in the new adult movie Faithless, on sale February 4.

McCarty, who played Beth Wallace on the soap opera Passions for seven years, is ready to get extremely passionate in this new classic from Vivid Entertainment.

Her reason for embarking on this new XXX-rated career?

"I enjoy acting, and I really like sex," says Kelli McCarty.

"This was the perfect opportunity to combine two of my passions. I approached Vivid with the idea of shooting a film with a sexy but interesting storyline."

"I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of control I was given," McCarty added in a comment that can be taken a number of ways. "I am very pleased with the final edit of Faithless, and I just may do another adult film."

Mmm. One can only hope (pray!) Tara Conner goes down this road someday.
