Just days after Jodie Sweetin filed for separation from husband Cody Herpin, her agent says the actress is "trying to stay positive" for 7-month-old daughter Zoie.

"Her focus is the baby," agent Stella Alex said Saturday. "Jodie's got a huge support system in her family and friends. She thinks this is what's best for her."

For his part, Cody Herpin, 31, says he's "still discombobulated" over the split, according to a report in People magazine. "Not knowing what's going on is hard."

He adds that Sweetin, 26, and their daughter are staying with her parents. "It's rough," he says. "Marriage is not taken lightly to me. It's supposed to be forever."

A SHATTERED MARRIAGE: Cody Herpin and Jodie Sweetin with baby Zoie.

According to the Superior Court papers filed on Wednesday in Orange County, Calif., Jodie Sweetin cited "irreconcilable differences" as the cause of the pair's split, and currently she seeks joint legal and physical custody of Zoie.

Britney Spears was in court Friday to talk business pertaining to dad Jamie Spears' control over her estate - namely, her plans for an upcoming tour.

"There isn't a lot I can tell you about it," court spokesman Allan Parachini said during a press conference afterward. "There was discussion of Ms. Spears' future immediate business plans. Particularly touring in support of her album."

Jamie Spears' conservatorship, signed off on February 1 when Britney Spears was briefly hospitalized for a psych evaluation, was made permanent last month, meaning her camp will have to file a separate petition to extract herself from it.

The hearing in downtown Los Angeles was most certainly not called, though, to address a change in the conservatorship arrangement, Parachini added.

"No, that did not come up. I have been asked by a couple of you whether the purpose of today's proceedings was to express a desire for a change in the status of the conservancy. No, she didn't raise that. That didn't come up."

"It was not part of today's hearing. It was about the tour. She has an album that is coming out. All of what is necessary to support the album."

She's been celebrating her sweet 16 for so darn long, it's hard to believe Miley Cyrus hadn't actually reached the big birthday milestone - until today!!!!

Happy birthday, Miley! xoxoxoxo!

We hope she enjoys a rockin' b-day swan diving into her pile of money (Scrooge McDuck style), posting racy MySpace photos, and getting to first base with beau Justin Gaston (just two more years until you can move past that, J-dog).

Alleged singer and actress Jessica Simpson totally could not be happier about her sister Ashleeeeeee's new baby with husband Pete Wetz, Bronx Mowgli.

"Bronx is beyond precious," the 28-year-old older sister and new aunt said in a statement. "I'm over the moon with joy. Life is a beautiful miracle."

Ashlee and Pete and healthy, happy and enjoying every moment."

We're sure she is. When your "career" is deteriorating faster than Lindsay Lohan's, any excuse to be in the news does the job! Yee-haw!

Hey, y'all, give it up for my nephew! And my giant boobs!

Bronx Mowgli Wentz - whose vitals are 7 pounds, 11 ounces, 20.5 inches long, and 9.5 on the Stupid Celebrity Baby Name Meter - was born Thursday night.

"Proud new parents Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz welcomed new son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, late this evening," a rep for the couple first announced on Friday morning. "[They] thank everyone for all of their well wishes!"

We knew former Virginia Tech and Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was a pretty messed up dude. You know, with the whole dogfighting-ring thing.

But apparently it was even worse than thought.

Michael Vick, Eagles

In a new report in the ongoing investigation, a person known as confidential witness No. 1 says that Michael Vick actually placed family pets in the ring against pit bulls owned by his now-infamous "Bad Newz Kennelz" and watched the animals ruthlessly attack the domesticated dogs, causing "major injuries."

The witness went on to say that Vick "thought it was funny to watch the pit bull dogs injure or kill the other dogs." Sounds downright delightful to us.

A convicted co-defendant in the case said at times, he suggested dogs unwilling to fight be let go, but Vick insisted that "they got to go." As in get killed.

This guy makes Ashley Dupre look like a sympathetic figure.

Mike Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison in December 2007, and is set to be released from federal prison at Leavenworth, Kan., early in July 2009.

"I think that prostitution is only about sex, whereas an escort... is more ... it's time spent. It's a lot more than that."

- Ashley Dupre

In an interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC's 20/20, the hooker who serviced New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer opened up about the scandal that ended his career and made her a celebrity. She dispensed many deep thoughts such as the one above.

It's all part of her ongoing publicity tour, as "that girl" gives interviews for the first time since the scandal broke in February. While the 20/20 piece isn't that interesting, Ashley Dupre certainly does appear sincere in the emotions she expresses.

Here's a portion of Ashley Dupre's interview ...

With her "comeback" in full swing, pop singer Britney Spears watched a screening of her MTV documentary, "For the Record," with 200 fans in Hollywood.

But one wonders if any of them were able to concentrate, given the top Britney was wearing. Looks like a piece missing in front! Call the fashion police!

Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer-Maguire, a jewelry designer, are expecting their second child, their rep Kelly Bush confirmed to In Touch Weekly.

Tobey, 33, and Jennifer Meyer, 31, are already proud parents of two-year-old Ruby Sweetheart Maguire. The new bundle of joy has a due date of Spring 2009.

Tobey Maguire, Jennifer Meyer-Maguire

GROWING THE FAMILY: Tobey Maguire will forever be known as Spider-Man to fans. But to little Ruby Sweetheart and his second, unborn child, he'll just be dad.

According to a friend of the couple, who wed in September 2007, “they are ecstatic.”

So are we, because they seem pretty normal and probably won't pick a stupid-ass name like Bronx Mowgli for Ruby's little brother / sister. Congrats, kids!
