The smarmy Spencer Pratt gives his girlfriend Heidi Montag's new lips a nice test drive at Las Vegas' Jet Nightclub on Friday evening.

The quasi-celebrities served as the club's Sin City "hosts" for the night, collecting fat paychecks and making out for cameras at every turn.

The Hollywood Gossip staff, meanwhile, vomited in its collective mouth upon seeing this nauseating photo of The Hills stars sucking (face).

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: So in love... with publicity.

Britney Spears has done the impossible since her discharge early Saturday morning from Cedars-Sinai hospital. No, she didn't shoot Sean Preston and Jayden James with her Beretta, or offer K-Fed $100 million to keep the boys.

Britney somehow slipped out of her Beverly Hills home undetected despite the horde of celebrity news reporters await her every move outside.

Beaming Brit

With her? Adnan Ghalib, of course.

The pop star, accompanied by her Finalpixx photographer and possible lover, was spotted in Palm Desert as she popped into the Daily Grill around 10 a.m. Sunday.

"She seemed in a really good mood, laughing with the guy she was with," says the restaurant's manager of Spears and Adnan Ghalib.

Adnan Ghalib escorts Britney Spears to a prior hotel rendezvous.

At the restaurant, Britney Spears shielded herself behind large, dark sunglasses and "had a champagne mimosa to drink," he said.

The walking train wreck stayed at the restaurant with her man for about an hour, as Vegas Confidential's Norm Clarke first reported.

Spears, 26, had been "keeping company" with Adnan Ghalib, 35, before her recent meltdown. They have apparently become good "friends" lately.

The two checked into two hotels over the past couple of weeks, but he was not on hand Friday and did not comment on her stint at Cedars-Sinai.

Wonder what that jackass Dr. Shill Dr. Phil will say about this one.

UPDATE: Celebrity photo agency X17online.com says the couple is currently holed up together at Shutters Hotel in Santa Monica, California.

And, in a bizarre case of the pot calling the kettle brown black, Spears' pal Sam Lutfi tells X17 that "he is worried about Adnan's influence over Britney" and he "firmly believes Adnan Ghalib has ulterior financial motives."

Give it a rest, Sam Lutfi. We all know you're just jealous of Adnan, man.

This is bad celebrity gossip.

There's no other way to put this: A story by The News of the World (U.K.) gives the entire Hollywood gossip industry a bad name.

But it's a hilarious read.

When Britney went bonkers last Thursday night and early Friday morning, theories were flying far and wide as to what went down at her place.

Locking herself in a room with a craying Jayden James? Having Alli Sims break down the door and get her out. Who the heck knows what really happened!? We don't. Neither does the News of the World, and yet they write a remarkably detailed "account" of what supposedly transpired. Excerpts below:

  • Britney took nearly 100 pills in 36 hours leading up to her meltdown. She took 2 bottles of Nyquil, 20 Clenbuterols, 18 herbal uppers, 18 Piriton antihistamines, 12 Vicodins, 10 sleeping pills, 8 antacid pills, 1 bottle of Pepto Bismol, 10 Zantacs, 6 Ritalins and of 2 full bottles of Oxycontin.
  • Kevin Federline was afraid Britney would shoot both their sons dead - with a gun he gave her - a Beretta 92FS Brit keeps by her bed. Britney begged Kevin over the phone to let her keep the boys and offered him $100 million.
  • When one of Kevin's bodyguards tried to take the boys from her, she bit him in the leg. Britney called Jamie Lynn Spears and told her she wasn't going to be the only Spears on the cover of a magazine next week. Britney then proceeded to bash her head into the wall in a fit of rage.

You can follow this link continue reading the full, unadulterated bull$h!t story. We have to give them credit for creativity, at least. Maybe these News of the World guys should be scabs with the Hollywood writers still on strike.

Britney Spears was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Saturday. She is currently at her Beverly Hills home with her father, Jamie Spears.

Shortly after arriving at home, the 26-year-old Spears drove her white Mercedes convertible to the end of her gated community �" but made a U-turn home after seeing all the celebrity news photographers waiting for her.

Spears was on 72-hour lockdown after tweaking hard core Thursday night but was released surprisingly early after a hospital visit from Dr. Phil.

You cannot make this stuff up.

Entertainment Tonight reports that the star left the hospital via an underground tunnel with Dr. Phil because, "there was no reason to hold her longer."

Dr. Phil and Jordan McGraw

Reports say Dr. Phil is angling to get Britney Spears on his show Monday.

Dr. Phil did show up, but strangely, several inconsistencies have emerged between what Phil says went down at the hospital and what witnesses tell TMZ.

People on the 7th floor at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center say Phil arrived at 7:30 a.m. Saturday. TMZ reports Britney did not invite him in; in fact, she didn't even know he was coming. Sources say it was Britney's parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, who told Dr. Phil to go to the hospital.

When he walked into her hospital room, several celebrity news sources report, a blindsided Britney walked out - but eventually came back. Phil tried speaking with Spears for about 15 minutes - not an hour as Dr. Phil's press release states - but she wanted none of it. Phil did almost all the talking.

As for walking with her to the car on her way out -, as his release states - if he was walking behind her, that's news to her. She was not accompanied by him.

Sources say Dr. Phil somehow has convinced Lynne and Jamie Spears to be on his show, which will tape Monday and air Tuesday, but as one person put it, "Based on the interaction between Dr. Phil and Britney this morning, it'll be a cold day in hell before Britney Spears goes on his show."

Britney Spears was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance after disobeying court custody orders and having a massive mental meltdown Thursday night.

Friday, L.A. County Commissioner Scott Gordon suspended her visitation rights with sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, giving K-Fed sole custody "pending further order of the court." The order is effect until January 14.

One is a sexy Hollywood starlet.

The other is an aging actor who, according to the Internet, once sold his soul to the devil in exchange for unparalleled martial arts skills, then - in an ironic twist - roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back.

So what do Scarlett Johansson and Chuck Norris have in common?

They both backed winners in Thursday's Iowa caucuses. Yes, with a little help from their celebrity fans, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee emerged victorious in Iowa's first-in-the-nation vote.

While Chuck Norris, 67, stumped for Mike Huckabee in December and was with him last night, Johansson, 23, was by Obama's side, speaking at a rally for high school and college-aged "Barack Stars" in Coralville, Iowa, this week.

Scarlett Johansson urged younger Democrats in Iowa to help deliver a Barack Obama victory, and they obliged as the Illinois senator won the caucus.

"She actually seemed a little shy when she started speaking," audience member Jason Millsap said. "But she warmed up to the crowd ... It was pretty exciting and inspiring to see someone as big as her come and talk to her peers."

"[Scarlett Johansson] was asked a question as to why she chose to support Barack Obama and answered it very well, in my opinion," added high schooler and caucus goer Peter Caroll. "She [explained] how she did research him and found Obama to be [passionate about] most of the issues she deemed important."

Young voters, like Johansson and her fellow Barack Stars, may have been a key to Barack Obama's victory over John Edwards and Hillary Clinton. Obama took an estimated 57 percent of the under-30 vote, according to CNN.

In celebrity baby news that doesn't involve emergency room visits (hope you're okay, Jayden James!), a pair of stars are expecting a child with their loved ones.

First up, Jack Black and wife Tanya Haden are adding another kid to their family.

Awkward Oscar Moment

"Yes, she's expecting," Black told reporters at the Be Kind Rewind press day at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The two are already parents to a 1½-year-old boy.

Meanwhile, rapper T.I. and his occasional girlfriend Tameka Cottle (of the '90s R&B group Xscape), are expecting another child together.

This will be the fifth child for T.I. and his second with Cottle. We hope they take lessons from Britney Spears on how NOT to parent.

How far would you go to see Hannah Montana?

We mean in person, not just the racy Miley Cyrus photos on our site.

Young Pole Dancer

It turns out one Texas mom would go pretty damn far. She helped her daughter, who is six years old, win tickets in a contest by writing an essay falsely claiming her father died in Iraq in a roadside bombing. Well, that's one strategy.

Priscilla Ceballos apologized Friday on NBC's Today Show.

In a statement, she said she just got caught up in the moment of trying to help her daughter realize her dream of seeing Hannah Montana.

"Instead I brought so much negative attention to my family," Ceballos said. "Please accept my apology and please do not punish my child for my mistake."

Priscilla Ceballos also apologized to the military and military families.

"I just wanted to help my daughter write a compelling story," Ceballos said. "And There is certainly no more compelling story than the struggle and sacrifices of our military and their families."

The essay â€" which featured the opening line, "My daddy died this year in Iraq" â€" won the grand prize in a contest, sponsored by Club Libby Lu.

The big prize included airfare for four to Albany, N.Y., and four - four! - tickets to a sold-out Hannah Montana concert there, as well as a makeover that included a blonde Hannah Montana wig!! Like, OMG!!!

After Priscilla Ceballos admitted to officials that the essay information was untrue, the prize was awarded to another unnamed contestant.

Miley Cyrus was reportedly too busy kissing girlfriends to comment.

The stripper who claims that she had a strange, torrid fling with boxing champion Oscar de la Hoya - and has the alleged stilettoed, kinky drag photos to prove it - is fighting to get the hunk into the ring. Legally. So to speak.

Oscar, meanwhile, is trying to send the case to a secret arbitration.

Millie Corretjer

Milana Dravnel filed a memorandum to nix De La Hoya's request to get the case dismissed on grounds that she agreed to arbitrate her claims against him.

Milana Dravnel to Oscar de la Hoya: Put up your dukes, Nancy!

Dravnel says she never made any deal with the boxer to go to arbitration, much less an agreement to publicly disavow the Oscar de la Hoya drag photos.

The gist of all this?

Milana Dravnel wants a public trial to help win her $100 million suit, while the champ wants it handled in secret. Makes sense for both parties.

Oscar's lawyer didn't immediately respond to a call for comment. Oscar and his wife, Millie Corretjer, recently welcomed their second child.
