We're not talking about her lame appearances on How I Met Your Mother this time. We're talking about what actually made Britney Spears famous.

Looking hot, dancing suggestively and pretending to sing.

After her vacation, Britney Spears is back in the recording studio, working with J.R. Rotem and doing well, according to several celeb news sources.

"Britney is in the experimental stages of a new album... She's trying to find the sound and direction she wants to go in,"  a source told MSNBC.

"But nothing is set in stone just yet. She has been playing the piano a lot and just singing. She says she misses ‘just singing.'"

Could this be the beginning of a comeback for Britney Spears?

Despite no acting credits to her name, and being on someone else's reality show, she's one of the most-buzzed about people in Hollywood these days.

Audrina Patridge, as we saw the other night when she and Justin-Bobby were given an A-list welcome at an L.A. club, is the real deal.

For another 14 minutes, anyway.

The Hills' hottie was spotted leaving Fusion Hair Salon in L.A., this weekend with a sexy new long, straight hairstyle.

What do you think of Audrina Patridge and her new look?

Amy Winehouse has confirmed she is still working on the theme music for Quantum of Solace. But not without a hefty dose of heroin drama.

It was reported that bosses were in talks with Beyonce to replace the wife of Blake Fielder-Civil, but Winehouse says it didn't happen.

"I've written the song. If they like it, they like it," she said. "If they don't, then they don't. It's out of my hands."

Winehouse went on to say, in a roundabout way, that she's pissed at the Bond bosses, telling the UK's Daily Star:

"I've done loads of crack Bond songs ... there are loads of good ones I'm really happy with. I don't know what is wrong with them or what the problem is, to be honest. It's there, ready and done. It's up to them if they want it or not."

A source close to the Bond producers claim it's a delicate stage:

"[Amy Winehouse] is still seen as damaged goods - she will have to prove she's on the road to recovery before she's signed up."

Well... not really. But she is at a party, okay? You have to understand, Britney Spears gossip is just not what it used to be.

That's probably a good thing as far as the troubled singer not dying is concerned. Her dad, Jamie Spears, deserves much credit.

Britney, Jayden

The video below is a prime example.

Here's an undercover video of Jamie and Britney Spears hanging out at Christian Audigier's birthday party the other night.

Watching his daughter like a hawk, when Jamie realizes they are being recorded, he moves the booze away from Britney.

Exciting stuff, people! Well ... not really. But it's a national holiday, so cut The Hollywood Gossip a little slack, okay?

Brody Jenner is known for the ladies he dates.

We are talking about Nicole Richie, Kristin Cavallari, Lauren Conrad and Cora Skinner ... among many possible, rumored others.

But The Hills star is rejecting the label of "womanizer."

"Just because I date like everyone else does, for some reason they say I'm a 'serial dater,'" he said at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods.

"I think that's very disrespectful to say, because I was raised by my mother and I treat all women with respect."

Hollywood's hottest young bachelor, Brody Jenner, says he's only doing "what every other 24-year-old kid would do in my position."

As for his most recent ex, Cora Skinner, he says, "Cora is special to me. We still hang out. We're trying to work things out still."

Who do you think was a phony at Ashlee Simpson's wedding?

We'll give you a hint. He plays quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and used to date Sophia Bush, Carrie Underwood and Alli Sims.

According to TMZ, when People Magazine cut a $1.4 million deal for Ashlee Simpson wedding pics, there was one additional requirement - that Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo would be there at the event.

It all makes sense now.

Who would pay that for just Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz? No one we know. And why would Joe Simpson care so much that Tony Romo attended, begging him personally to come and "support the family" at the last minute?

Support them financially is what he meant
. Why are we not surprised?

Of course, Jessica and Tony broke up just before the wedding. Getting the idea why he still showed now? Jared Leto ain't gonna sell celeb news magazines!

People, for its part, wanted to put a pic of Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo as an inset on the cover - after all, they're a hot couple. Ashlee and Pete? Eh...

That's the word on the streets, though the guilty party denies it.

Jared Leto's rep has come out swinging and slamming a National Enquirer report that Jessica Simpson cheated on Tony Romo with his client.

"There is no truth whatsoever to that," Leto's manager, Jason Weinberg, told Us Weekly of the rumor that Jared and Jessica are boinking.

Jessica Simpson and Jared Leto: Supposedly not hitting it.

As for Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo, well, it's still a pretty big mystery (as we've discussed) whether or not they are together.

Simpson paid tribute to Tony's team - sporting a Dallas Cowboys cap while leaving Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, solo, on Thursday.

With Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz now man and wife, tell us what do you think: will Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo get married?

That's about it for this story. But read on if you wish to know the deets of Britney Spears' girls' night out - with her dad - on Friday night.

Spears, who J.R. Rotem recently reported is doing "great," told celebrity gossip reporters that she's doing "good" while hitting up designer Christian Audigier's 50th birthday party at L.A.'s Petersen Automotive Museum.

Spears, 26, hung with girlfriends in a roped-off VIP area. Fergie, Snoop Dogg, Pamela Anderson and even Michael Jackson also made appearances.

Britney Spears: Hanging in there, having some fun.

Papa Jamie Spears, Brit's protector, joined his daughter, sitting on a couch about five feet away with his head resting on his hands.

Britney Spears stayed about an hour and a half, smoking cigarettes on a patio and nodding her head to a live performance from Macy Gray.

She did not drink alcohol.

Ellen DeGeneres and John McCain may have gotten into a smackdown over her plans to marry partner Portia DeRossi, but there's another Republican who is far less abrasive - and even willing to help with the nuptials:

Jenna Hager (a.k.a. Jenna Bush)!

Ellen Pic

The first daughter, who got married May 10 at the Bush family compound in Crawford, Texas, appears with her mother, Laura Bush, on next Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Looks like they're having fun ...

Mrs. Henry Hager and the future Mrs. Portia de Rossi share a laugh.

Among the topics of discussion, of course, will be Jenna's wedding to Henry Hager, with the bride even showing off some new reception photos.

Said Ellen DeGeneres: "So, the ranch was a great place to get married - it looked like nobody could fly over and get pictures of you, really."

"Yeah," concurred Jenna Hager, "it was really nice." Ellen responded: "So, can we borrow it for our wedding, can we get the ranch?"

Oh, and that's Rachel Leigh Cook in between them. When you find three lovely ladies in the same outfit, you can't just leave one out.

An unlikely threesome (we wish), but a fashionable one just the same. You tell us who wore this printed silk minidress by French Connection best!

From left, The Hills star Lauren Conrad, actress Rachel Leigh Cook and WWE hottie / Dancing With the Stars season two finalist Stacy Keibler ...

Who wore it best? It's gotta be between LC and the WWE star, no?
