Britney Spears is totally back.

Or at least alleged "leaked" clips of her alleged new songs are.

Below is a snippet of the recovering pop star's single, "Womanizer." Some radio station in Nashville, Tenn., 107.5 The River, posted the 40-second clip earlier today.

This follows the leak of another song from Circus (which is scheduled for release on Britney's birthday December 2), "Candy From Strangers," earlier in the week.

The sound quality is not the best. Nor is the song quality.

Then again, the producers, composers and writers Jive pays to craft these computerized, dance-y pop tracks and slap her name on it Britney could have done worse.

Jessica Simpson (somehow) just notched a #1 country album – but she also wants to give herself props having Tony Romo as the love of her life.

"Tony is a great quarterback, but he's a better boyfriend," Simpson told People. "I'm seriously proud of myself for letting him into my life."

Plunging Neckline

Tony Romo deserves his share of credit as well, though. Cuddling up to her isn't always what it's cracked up to be, the alleged singer confesses.

"To be my man, you have to put up with a lot," said the singer. "I toot under the sheets, I spend a lot of money and I can belch the ABC's."

Well, okay then.

As for her current country CD and accompanying media tour, it hasn't been without a few negative incidents. During her 70-minute set featuring her album, Do You Know, Jessica actually forgot the lyrics to one of her best-known pop songs, "With You."

"I did the same thing on Good Morning America," said an apologetic Simpson, referring to her talent technical problems recently on the ABC morning show.

Afterwards, she said, "I've been singing that song for about 70 years and I forgot the lyrics. At least you guys still have my giant boobs to ogle knew them."

Well, not exactly. While Katie Holmes' Broadway debut was well received by critics and theater-goers, it wasn't a big hit with some of the angry peeps above.

Protesters outside the "All My Sons" production were out to express their displeasure with the cult, er, religion of Scientology and its best-known ambassador, Tom Cruise, who was personally on hand to watch his style-impaired wife do her thing.

As excitement builds in anticipation of her upcoming album, Circus, Britney Spears is reportedly preparing to make appearance on the UK's The X Factor.

The recovering singer will be performing her big comeback single, "Womanizer," in what will be her first visit to the European nation in four years.

Spears will appear on the talent show - the successor of Pop Idol, which spawned American Idol - in December, when Circus is set to be released.

"Womanizer" will be available as a single sooner than that. A track from her new album called "Candy From Strangers" has already been leaked online.

Earlier this month, Britney Spears took home three prizes at the 25th MTV Video Music Awards. She looked both happy and healthy, as is evidenced above.

Some worry, though, that Jive Records is trying to milk its cash cow hard now that she's functional - and perhaps setting Spears up for another collapse.

It was a moment we all knew would happen someday, but it doesn't make it any less sad. This officially marks the end of an error era on The Hills.

Audrina Patridge is moving out of Lauren Conrad's guesthouse.

LC in Stripes!

Moving vans were seen outside of the Los Angeles villa and boxes were dropped off on Thursday. Patridge, who has felt ostracized in the guest house for months, made the decision after months of awkward tension between her, Conrad and Lo Bosworth.

"All I want is for you to be my friend again," a teary-eyed Lauren Conrad told Patridge on last week's emotional and captivating episode of The Hills.

"Okay, then let's do it," Audrina replied.

Maybe they have, or will still do it. But not on the same compound.

No word on where Audrina Patridge goes from here. Last season, she toyed with moving out, going so far as to check out cool apartments with her loser boyfriend Justin Bobby. Let's just hope she's not going to crash with that moron.

She's also been linked to Tal Cooperman and Corey Bohan, so we honestly have no idea what her deal is. If anyone does, please leave a comment and let us know.

Two hot shows on the CW network. A bunch of young, quasi-celebrities you've probably never heard of. One potentially awesome feud in the making.

This week, 90210’s skinny starlets (like that anorexic bitch Shenae Grimes) have been making headlines with their ribs. Some say they are too thin for TV!

Penn Badgley Hair

Some dudes are into that - Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth don't seem to have much trouble landing boyfriends. But Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley? Not a fan.

The 21-year-old actor said he's “never been proponent of the thin L.A. girls” and is glad that the female cast members on his hit show “aren’t bone-thin.”

Speaking to Popeater.com, Badgley then offered some advice for the frail, brittle girls of 90210: “I hope they eat a double cheeseburger or something.”

As if Penn weren't the man already for dating Blake Lively. Amen, sir.

Troubled Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and wife Cynthia Rodriguez have settled their bitter divorce fight. Terms of the settlement were not released.

"Cynthia and Alex Rodriguez have amicably resolved their dissolution of marriage proceedings," lawyers for the former couple said in a statement.

Nose Picking By Alex Rodriguez

Both Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez have remained "deliberately engaged in these private negotiations. During the negotiations and resolution all decisions were made with the best interests of their children as the paramount concern."

Cynthia, 35, filed for divorce in July, saying her estranged husband – known to fans as A-Rod (or several more insulting names we can't print here) – "emotionally abandoned" her and their children and had a series of affairs.

With Joslyn Morse, Alicia Marie, Candice Houlihan, maybe Madonna and so on.

Cynthia Rodriguez had asked to keep their $12 million Coral Gables, Fla., mansion. The mother of his two children, Natasha, 3, and Ella, five months, also wanted a cut of his baseball earnings during the duration of their marriage.

Alex Rodriguez reportedly made $28 million during the 2008 season and is in the first year of a 10-year, $275 million contract with the New York Yankees.

The Rod argued that the settlement should be determined by their prenup, which Cynthia (maiden name Scurtis) signed a month before their 2002 wedding.

He admitted the marriage was "irretrievably broken," but noted Florida is a no-fault state for divorces and chastised her for mentioning "immaterial and impertinent" issues like his alleged "extra marital affairs and other marital misconduct."

When you have cancer and your husband cheats on you with - and possibly knocks up - Rielle Hunter? Yeah, we can see trust being a problem after that.

Elizabeth Edwards, 59, is speaking out for the first time since her husband, John Edwards, a former U.S. Senator and candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, admitted he had an extramarital affair with the filmmaker.

"There's a lot of adjustment to make," she told the Detroit Free Press, adding that she remains in "an ongoing process of finding your feet again."

"Trust [is] probably the most difficult hurdle."

Elizabeth and John Edwards in May 2008.

The story of John Edwards' relationship with Hunter broke in December 2007, but he denied it until he got caught visiting her at a Beverly Hills hotel this July.

Edwards then admitted to the affair in August, but claims it ended in 2006 and he only engaged in relations with Hunter while Elizabeth's cancer was in remission.

Like that makes it okay. He also denies he is the father of Rielle Hunter's daughter, born this Februrary. His former aide Andrew Young has claimed paternity - yet has provided no financial assistance to Hunter, nor has he been heard from since.
