With her career comeback in full swing, Britney Spears still found the time to take her adorable two sons — Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2 — to a pumpkin patch in West Hollywood on Thursday. What a nice fall tradition.

When asked how it went, Britney Spears responded, “We had a great day! I just put the babies down for bed. We were able to sneak out and get Halloween costumes!”

Wonder what Sean Preston and Jayden James will go as for Halloween. Maybe a couple of little K-Feds? In any case, good to see our girl putting her life back together.

Carrie Underwood was in New York for the unveiling of her wax figure (see yesterday's edition of Real or Wax), but she also addressed another fake singer, Jessica Simpson, and her reported rift with her ex's new girlfriend.

Talking about the life-like replica of herself, Carrie Underwood said: "Honestly, it looks so good, it's kind of creepy looking at myself."

When asked by reporters about Jessica Simpson, who is dating Underwood's ex-boyfriend Tony Romo, the country star brushed off rumors of a feud.

"I met her once and she seemed really nice so I don't have a feud with anybody," said Underwood, who even praised Simpson's crossover to country music.

"I think it's great that country music just seems to be opening their arms to people that want to be a part of it," she said. "They let me in when they didn't have to and they're doing the same thing for a lot of other people."

The beautiful Carrie Underwood also spoke about her thoughts about ex-boyfriends and the role the celebrity gossip / news media plays in her relationships.

"I generally have been friends with ex-boyfriends. Sometimes the whole media thing adds, well not sometimes, every time it adds a little obstacle," said the American Idol winner. "Before all this, everybody I had ever dated I was friends with."

With all those crazy liberals she works with, The View's resident conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck can't get a word in edgewise on her own talk show.

Fortunately for her, that won't be an issue this weekend as she will be on hand to introduce Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at campaign rallies in Florida.

“I am more than honored to be there, so I will be flying there to travel with her and meet some pretty interesting people,” she said today on The View.

“That’s an honor, I’m excited to do it, and I’ll have some stories I’m sure on Monday,” added Hasselbeck, who was mercifully not maimed by her co-hosts.

You Betcha

Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sarah Palin will share the campaign stage.

According to ABC News, bringing Elisabeth on board comes as the John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign attempts to boost its support among female voters.

Hasselbeck wore a John McCain T-shirt on Tuesday's program, butting heads with liberal co-host Joy Behar as a result and continuing the feud Wednesday.

Raffaello Follieri, who pleaded guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, money laundering and conspiracy, was sentenced Thursday to 4.5 years in prison.

The Italian-born real estate-business magnate, 30, was arrested in June.

He was accused of lying to investors by claiming to be the CFO of the Vatican and using swindled funds for a trip to the Dominican Republic over New Year's 2005-2006 with his "then girlfriend" (Anne Hathaway) and another couple.

Raffaello Follieri used the funds for rent ($37,000 / month), medical bills for himself and his "then girlfriend," orthodontist bills for his dad, etc.

His attorney, Flora Edwards, has said her client had good intentions when he started a business to buy property from the Catholic church but that he soon "became intoxicated with it all" when he began moving in A-list circles.

Anne Hathaway and Raffaello Follieri dated for four years but split in June just before his arrest. He conceivably could have faced up to 265 years in prison, but agreed not to appeal a sentence less than 63 months in the big house.

The con man's plea agreement included a stipulation that he forfeit $2.44 million (the amount representing what he obtained via illegal activity). He also agreed to forfeit 12 wristwatches and nine pieces of fine jewelry. Ouch.

Shayne Lamas who?

Former star of The Bachelor Matt Grant has not given up on love since his split with his airhead reality TV fling. The British hunk is head over heels in love again — this time for his British-born public relations representative, Sarah Robarts.

Matt Grant, 28, says his business relationship with Sarah Robarts, 39 and a single mother of two, eventually evolved into a serious emotional bond.

“It’s the best relationship I have ever been in,” Grant said. “I’m completely in love. She’s extremely beautiful inside and out. She’s one in a million.”

Shayne Dahl Lamas

Matt Grant has ditched Shayne Lamas for his rep, Sarah Robarts.

Sure, he said these things about Shayne Lamas too, but everyone figured he was going to dump that annoying ditz in a matter of weeks. And he did.

When the two first met following Matt Grant’s starring role (and engagement to Lamas) on The Bachelor, it was all business.

But even then, he says, “I couldn’t help but think, ‘Man she’s hot.’”

They certainly make a cute couple (see photo below), but Kristin Cavallari insists she and Fantastic Four star Chris Evans aren't an item.

The New York Post reported that the two definitely "hooked up" last week at the opening of Cabana One at the Mayfair Hotel in Miami, Florida.

"I hear that too! No, we're just friends," the former Laguna Beach star said Wednesday at the opening of Peter Alexander's flagship L.A. store.

"I've known [Chris Evans] for awhile – just through mutual friends. I've known him for a few years, actually. We're good friends."

So what's Kristin Cavallari's ideal type?

"I look for a guy who can really make me laugh," the aspiring actress says. "You know, looks go away after awhile... so someone who can really make me laugh and who's secure with themselves. In L.A. it's hard to find. They're prettier than the girls! There are a few good guys, though, but I haven’t found one lately. Or ever."

Next up for Kristin Cavallari - who one of our staff writers refers to as the original Lauren Conrad: A guest role on CSI.

"I'm filming it this week and next week," she said "I’m really excited."

DJ AM and Mandy Moore dated for only two months in 2007, but since his plane crash last month, "It's back on," a source close to AM tells Us Weekly.

"Since the accident, it's blossomed into something again."

Mandy Moore rushed to DJ AM’s side after the September 19 crash that left him with burns on his arm and face, injured Travis Barker and killed four others.

Added the insider, "Mandy said, 'I like this guy a lot and I want to see where it can go again. Life is too short to not be with someone you really care about.'"

A witness who saw them at the October 18 Friendly House event in Beverly Hills says, "He was holding her hand, and they were rubbing each other's backs."

So after romances with other celebrities - DJ AM, 35, was once engaged to Nicole Richie, 27, while Moore went out with Scrubs star Zach Braff, 33, and tennis pro Andy Roddick, 26 — can the reunited couple make it work this time?

Says a DJ AM pal, "When you go through what Adam went through, you need people you love and people who love you. He will never stop loving her."
