The lawyer who tried to torpedo the conservatorship of Britney Spears' dad, and claims the singer herself enlisted him to do this, has just filed legal papers, contesting the restraining order issued against him and asking for a new trial.

Only this time, Jon Eardley, wants a jury to rule on the matter.

Eardley, along with Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib, are now bound by restraining orders after the conservators convinced a judge they were harassing Britney and her family. None of them can contact the star in any way before April 2012.

But the attorney says a jury should have made that decision and wants a new trial. Jon Eardley failed in his previous attempt to get Britney on the stand, as a judge ruled she lacked the capacity to testify in the restraining order case.

Does Britney Spears want to be free of her dad's rule?

Accounts of Britney's role in trying to oust the conservatorship vary. She has not said anything on the record, of course, as that would require her dad's approval, as would everything she does. But she is certainly on a tight leash.

Earlier this month, one of the singer's most popular fan sites, BreatheHeavy.com, also felt the wrath of the conservatorship after criticizing Jamie Spears.

Sam Lutfi, who is battling the conservatorship over this and other legal issues, has also stated he did nothing wrong and that Britney initiated contact.

According to an interview in Brazil's Quem (Who) magazine with Jesus Luz's dad, the rumors of Madonna and his son getting married are kind of totally true!

Luis Heitor Pinto da Luz says: "The Kabbalah ceremony [in New York that] will link up my son Jesus Luz and Madonna only confirms he is extremely happy."

There you have it, then!

Although, the Madonna-Jesus wedding most likely won't result in the male model signing a prenup anytime soon, as the "wedding" won't be legally binding.

"I don't know if there will, in fact, be a real marriage between Madonna and my son. It will be a type of ritual, but I do not know kabbalah [or if the ceremony] will have legal validity," says Luis, who doesn't seem upset or concerned.

Jesus' father, who is probably not God, continued to discuss his son's relationship, saying He and Madge live together in her Central Park West apartment.

He denies another recent set of rumors that Madonna is shelling out large sums of money to teach her hunky Brazilian stallion to speak proper English.

"[Jesus] already spoke English very well before he knew Madonna!" his pop says indignantly, explaining: "He has an aunt residing in the United States."

The young stud has also been playing "manny" to Madge's kids, says papa Luz: "She has small children, and Jesus helps her out with various tasks involving all of them. He plays ball with the kids. Jesus has charisma and loves children."

Whatever the nature of their post-ceremony relationship, Jesus' dad heartily approves of his son's choice in women - even if they're over the half-century mark.

"I've spoken by phone with Madonna - in French, because my English isn't fluent - and she appears to me to be a normal and polite person," he says.

"She is feminine. I don't feel she is a harsh person."

Feminine? The woman's arms are like pythons. We're just saying. Has he seen Madonna recently? Good Lord. She probably juices up harder than A-Rod.

Always there when you need a quote about Hills-related (or unrelated) stories, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag say they're thrilled that Kristin Cavallari will be replacing Lauren Conrad on the MTV reality series that made them stars.

"I love Kristin. She introduced us," Heidi said at Maxim's 10th Annual Hot 100 party. "We wouldn't be together without Kristin, and she's one of my favorite people."

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag Celebrate

The new season, Heidi said, will be "ten times better!"

As we reported earlier, Kristin Cavallari’s first appearance will be on the May 31 finale, where she catches the bouquet at Heidi and Spencer's wedding.

Spencer thinks she will "bring some edge" that LC didn't have: "Lauren didn't date a guy for three years. Kristin's going to date three guys every day!"

Now that Cavallari is joining the cast of his self-described favorite show, Spencer adds that he "would stay on The Hills for twenty seasons!"

NEW CENTER OF ATTENTION: Kristin Cavallari will find herself in the familiar position when she takes Lauren Conrad's place as the leading lady of MTV's The Hills.

His sister, Stephanie Pratt, isn't so convinced.

"I'm terrified!" she said, half-seriously. "She's no Lauren Conrad. And she loves drama and catfights. I saw her on Laguna Beach. I'm freaking out."

Audrina Patridge said bringing Cavallari on board is "great."

"It'll add a little spice to The Hills," she said. "I don't really know her that well. I hung out with her a couple times, and she seems like a pretty cool girl."

Still, it'll be different without Lauren Conrad.

"I'm so used to talking with Lauren and filming with her all the time," said Audrina, who will remain a focal point like she was on Monday's episode of The Hills. "I still talk to her off camera, but it's weird not being able to film with her."

Janice Dickinson, the self-proclaimed original supermodel, has never been one to refrain from speaking her mind. Especially when provoked by paparazzi.

Plenty of stars have earned headlines for getting violent with members of the celebrity gossip media, but the Mesozoic model goes ape$h!t like no other.

Circled by vultures and berated as a “great distraction,” the reality TV mainstay went on a profane tirade whilst beating a cameraman with her scarf.

Despite visible intoxication outside Nobu, Janice Dickinson actually got in her car to drive away. Thankfully, when she went to chase another photographer, her friend got behind the wheel as Dickinson screamed “I’m totally f*%ked up!”

Then they drove off. That's it. Check out this epic meltdown below:

While she insists that this week's split from Peter Andre was his idea, and that she is absolutely devastated, some sources suspect that the whole thing could be a tawdry publicity stunt cooked up by Katie Price herself.

She's got her fourth autobiography coming out soon, while he is about to release an album full of gut-wrenching ballads about losing the woman he loves.

Does sound like a Speidi-like publicity stunt, no?

About two weeks ago, the model formerly known as Jordan felt anxious, she confided, because she thought that she was simply not earning enough.

She had dyed her hair a plain brown because she said she was "fed up" with highlights, and cut down her longtime stylist's hours due to fiscal woes.

Having been in America for months, paying rent on a house in Malibu but not earning any money, the attention whore was starting to feel broke and forgotten. And nothing annoys an attention whore more than the threat of obscurity.

A source who spent time with Katie Price recalls ger grumbling about her "thunder thighs" and being even more bad tempered than usual with Peter.

It was then she started to talk about a "massive comeback."

Katie said she was going to reinvent herself in a spectacular way - which she did not specify - confiding that she was going on one of her juice-only detox diets.

These are the sort of actions to which the 30-year-old is prone, and few took notice, as she often talks about wanting to be the nation's biggest star again.

Now, of course, things look rather different.

The "shocking pictures" which are supposed to have ended the marriage are harmless. Peter was said to have lost his $h!t when he saw them, but Katie was merely "cuddling up" to international dressage rider Spencer Wilton - he is openly gay.

Wilton and Price are friends through their shared interest in riding and her commercial ventures with equestrian clothing. In fact, the two are so close that it's hard to credit that Andre did not recognize the "mystery hunk."

So if they have not split up thanks to those pics, have they truly split up at all? According to reports, the reality TV couple looked perfectly happy as they exited the trendy London restaurant Nobu on Saturday night, hand in hand.

And hadn't Katie been talking only last week about her plans to have a third child with Peter gladly concurring with the idea in his most recent magazine column?

The expose of the Price-Andre union continues. Follow the link to keep reading this article in the Daily Mail, and click to enlarge more pictures below.

Embattled Miss California Carrie Prejean certainly has her share of critics, but rest assured, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is firmly in her camp.

The 2008 GOP Vice Presidential nominee released a statement last night slamming "the liberal onslaught of malicious attacks" against Prejean, who first ignited controversy for coming out against same-sex marriage at last month's Miss USA pageant.

"I can relate, as a liberal target myself," Sarah Palin said.

"What I find so remarkable is that these politically-motivated attacks fail to show that what Carrie and I believe is also what President Obama and Secretary Clinton believe - marriage is between a man and a woman."

"I applaud Donald Trump for standing with Carrie during this time. And I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and not letting those who disagree with her deny her protection under the nation's First Amendment Rights."

DUMB AND DUMBER: Carrie Prejean has a new, high-profile political backer.

"Our Constitution protects us all - not just those who agree with the far left," the mother of Bristol Palin went on.

Amazingly, the governor of a U.S. state apparently does not realize that:

  • She was only a "liberal target" because she was running for Vice President of the United States, and representing the other party.
  • The First Amendment has nothing to do with being criticized for speaking one's mind; it simply protects one from being imprisoned for it.
  • Prejean nearly lost her crown not for her gay marriage stance, but for violating the terms of her contract with a private organization.
  • Prejean did not lose her crown! Rather, she received national acclaim, even becoming a hero to the National Marriage ... whatever it is.

Last week, Prejean's father, Will, told E! Online that Palin personally called him to voice support for his daughter, but didn't reveal any more details.

On Tuesday, Trump announced at a news conference that Prejean will keep her crown despite the release of semi-nude and topless photos that she blamed on the wind ... or Satan ... or liberals, or ... whatever, who the hell cares.

Miss California pageant director Shanna Moakler resigned her position a day later, saying she "no longer believes" in the Miss Universe organization. When Shanna Moakler is your new moral compass, you've got issues, Miss Universe.

Former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari has been rumored for weeks to be replacing Lauren Conrad, her former high school rival, on MTV's The Hills.

Well, now it's a done deal!

Cavallari will indeed be starring in the faux-reality series, with her first appearance on the show also being Conrad's last - the May 31 season finale.

Kristin will be shown catching the bouquet at the wedding of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt (she introduced the gruesome twosome years ago).

She'll appear in 10 episodes this fall. The 22-year-old budding actress is fully prepared to stir things up, too: “It’s a TV show,” Kristin Cavallari explains.

“I’m not going into it like, ‘I’m going to make great friendships with these people.’ It’s work! Drama sells. I think that’s why they’re bringing me in.”

Kristin shared more insight with Entertainment Weekly on her return to reality TV. We've printed some excerpts below, with more after the jump.

On why she’s coming back: “My goal is to get fans excited about me again. When I first started out, I had a celebrity name but I didn’t have the acting skills I have now. If I have some buzz with my name again, I feel like it will only help.”

Back home in California before heading off to Europe with the Circus next month, Britney Spears was spotted with her agent, Jason Trawick, over the weekend.

The couple were seen riding, alone, in her white Mercedes. The pair just drove around Los Angeles for two hours straight, without even a stop for food or gas.

Spears and Trawick

Two hours straight? Are these two an item again? Were they ever? All we know is that every few months, this same rumored relationship seems to pop up.

Here are some photos of them together - not from this week's driving adventure (follow the link to see those) - that have sparked such gossip in the past:

While it's possible they were just driving aimlessly around LA talking biz - we have done so and have far less interesting lives - but isn't that a bit strange for Britney Spears and Jason Trawick, who have twice been linked romantically?

Is it possible they wanted to spend time together and not worry about being seen or overheard? Were they (unsuccessfully) looking for a place to shack up?

Whatever the case may be, Jason Trawick appears to be a decent guy, and a good influence on Britney. And no matter what, he's no Osama Lutfi. Nice.

Facing a May 18 trial date on charges of selling OxyContin, Sherry Johnston - the mother of Levi Johnston - says relations between her family and that of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are thawing, and that she saw grandson Tripp at her own home.

"When Bristol came to pick up Tripp this week, she said if we want him more often, all I have to do is call ... She said if I want to come to their house, I can come over and see him all the time," Sherry Johnston, 42, tells Momlogic.com.

"I am hopeful we'll be able to work together to raise Tripp."

The families have been feuding in recent weeks as Levi embarks on a whirlwind media tour for some ridiculous reason, talking about boning Bristol and feeling sorry for himself for not getting to spend more time with his son.

Johnston, who spent Mother's Day with Levi and his twin sister Mercede, said she sent a Mother's Day text message to Tripp's mom, Bristol Palin, May 10.

Three generations of Johnstons: Sherry, Levi and Tripp.

But despite signs of easing of the tension between the two Alaskan families, Sherry says she still would like to see her baby grandson more often.

Perhaps she should have considered that before getting involved - allegedly, sorry - in dealing prescription drugs. Not great for the reputation, typically.

"We see him a few hours a week, but I did spend time with him this morning. It tears me apart. Every time I see him he's a different child."

"Before he wasn't rolling over, now he is," Sherry Johnston added. "Now he's trying to crawl. I am missing him so much that it tears me up."

Johnston pleaded innocent to all charges and says she got hooked on the opiate after a hysterectomy that led to seven additional surgeries.

As Lauren Conrad can attest, some Hollywood neighbors aren't too excited when a young celebrity moves into their neighborhood at throws parties.

Paris Hilton probably won't be receiving any apple pies from her neighbors after one of her late-night ragers ended with a vandalism spree this week.

It happened Monday in the Hollywood Hills, where Paris just moved in and threw a huge "welcome me back" party that lasted until 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Welcome back from what? Whatever it is she does. We're not clear on what that is, but anyway, Paris' neighbors called the cops about the noise.

Big mistake, it turned out.

When they woke up, a half-dozen cars on the block had been keyed and egged. Among said cars - two Bentleys, two Maseratis and a $1.4 million Bugatti Veyron, whose owner is probably wondering right about how why he didn't garage it.

Police are investigating the possibility that some of the guests were involved. Paris Hilton herself was interviewed, though they don't think she's a culprit. Of course, she would probably have to Google herself to remember anyway.
