While the racy / naked Miley Cyrus pictures were dominating the news, the Disney icon had her name legally changed last week in Santa Monica.

Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, told Oprah he had a special reason for naming her Destiny Hope Cyrus, which she legally ditched last week.

Miley Cyrus' destiny and hope were to legally be called Miley.

"I had this vision that it was her destiny to bring hope to the world," Billy Ray said.

"And as a baby, she just kept smiling all the time. So her name was Destiny Hope, but I started calling her Smiley. Then as you start talking to a baby, you start dropping the S's off the front end, and pretty soon Smiley became Miley."

If there were doubts about the status of Prince Harry's on-again, off-again relationship with Cheslsy Davy, this should erase them for good.

The 22-year-old student - who split with her royal beau briefly in November - was a special guest as Harry received an army honor Monday.

As Chelsy Davy looked on, beaming proudly, Prince Harry, 23, was handed a campaign medal for his service in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

The blonde Zimbabwean sat with Prince William, 25, a fellow lieutenant in the Blues and Royals, to watch the ceremony led by Harry's aunt, Princess Anne, in the less-than-glamorous surroundings of his Combermere Barrack.

Prince Harry - dubbed "Hero Harry" in the British press - blushed slightly as he chatted with Anne while she pinned the medal on his left lapel.

Location: Kentwood, Louisiana
Occasion: Kids having kids
Notable Guests: Britney Spears
Number of Pork Rinds Consumed: ???

It was a family affair Saturday as mom-to-be Jamie Lynn Spears was thrown an intimate baby shower in her hometown of Kentwood, La.

About 30 guests were invited - including big sis Britney Spears - out to Kentwood for a ladies-only, catered celebration for the 17-year-old.

The family's Serenity mansion, where Britney hadn't been back to since her aunt's funeral early last year, played host to the family event.

Britney Spears attended Jamie Lynn's baby shower!

"Jamie Lynn opened every gift," says a source, adding that her mother Lynne Spears and fiancé Casey Aldridge's mother lent a hand.

"We all sat in a circle and she opened gifts and thanked every person. It was just a good old fashioned baby shower."

Though sheriff's deputies were posted at the gate and celebrity photographers circled in helicopters, "it was a normal shower," says the source.

"A wonderful, sweet occasion."

Britney Spears was photographed smoking outside a lot. But it's great that she rolled to Louisiana to celebrate with Jamie Lynn.

In March, the Zoey 101 star announced that she and Casey Aldridge are in fact engaged. She is reportedly due to give birth on July 10.

Ugly Betty star America Ferrera is not engaged to her long-time boyfriend, filmmaker Ryan Piers Williams, her rep tells celebrity news magazines.

Online reports speculated she was engaged because the actress, 24, wore what looked like an engagement ring on the New York set of Ugly Betty.

Turns out, the ring could be part of a plot twist on show. Or maybe a gift from future Ugly Betty guest star Lindsay Lohan. Really, who knows!?

America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams: Just boyfriend-girlfriend.

Ryan Piers Williams, 26, is an aspiring director. They first met at University of Southern California, pre-Betty days, when he cast her in his student film.

Engagement or not, they are said to be house hunting (or were, at least) have a golden retriever named Buddy. That's good at least.

The actress - who has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president - will be starring in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, out in August.

Who says you can't go home again?

NOTE: No one we know actually says that.

So Pretty in Pink Britney

The adage certainly doesn't apply to Britney Spears, who left California Friday and returned to her native Kentwood, La., marking her first trip back since before hospitalizations, custody battles and crazy no-pants-clubbing galore.

Also in town is Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, who remains in legal control of her personal, financial and medical affairs at least until a July 31 court hearing.

The troubled singer's arrival in her home state comes as inside sources say there is a planned baby shower over the weekend for her 17-year-old sister Jamie Lynn Spears, who announced her pregnancy back in December.

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears and her 19-year-old baby-daddy / fiance, Casey Aldridge, announced their engagement in March. Congrats, kids!

Britney Spears, 26, last visited Kentwood in early 2007 for her aunt's funeral. Accompanying her at the time was boyfriend Isaac Cohen.
