He may have partied until dawn, but parenting was on the mind of Kevin Federline Friday night into Saturday morning in South Beach.

Sort of.

Capping a week in which he and ex Britney Spears seem destined for court in their custody battle, K-Fed was in Miami - but his mind was in L.A.

"Kevin was in a great mood, and even talked about a new song he is working on, called 'Daddy's Home,'" says a source at Mansion on South Beach, where K-Fed (as host) and his party of 10 stayed until 4 a.m. Saturday.

Aww. So sweet. At Mansion, Kevin Federline, dressed in an over-sized, blue, long-sleeved, oxford shirt and jeans, spent much of the night chatting with the club's host, Lyndon Smith, another single dad.

"We talked about our kids, parenting, what that's all about," Smith says.

Scrubs stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison, along with Cacee Cobb, Jessica Simpson's BFF and former assistant, came late and hung with Federline while he danced with his group of friends, including one guy from his hometown.

In what would truly be a watershed moment for both the decline of popular music and the rise of the celebrity gossip industry, Britney Spears might actually perform again at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

MTV's head honcho says he'd welcome an encore from the troubled singer.

All Chained Down

"Everyone deserves a second or third chance, right?" Van Toffler, president of MTV Networks, said of Britney, who's supposedly working on a new album.

When asked if he was just joking, Toffler said, "Sorta."

A scantily clad Britney Spears famously attempted her career "comeback" at the MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas in 2007.

To say that viewers were disappointed by Britney's phoned-in performance of "Gimme More" would be the understatement of all time.

This year's VMAs will be in Los Angeles on September 7. Maybe Jamie Lynn and Lynne can come watch, giving us the Spears mom tri-fecta!

"I'm not sure how we top Britney opening the show," Toffler said. "But please know we are working on it every minute of every day."

Would you watch Britney Spears perform at the MTV VMAs again? And would she try to top last year's debacle by taking the stage in no pants?

Greg Norman's golf career was marked as much by major championship heartbreak as it was by prolific top-five finishes and earnings.

Yesterday should go a long way towards healing that broken heart.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

It's no green jacket, but Norman and Chris Evert, a 53-year-old tennis legend, were married Saturday in a sunset ceremony in the Bahamas.

On the same day that Ruben Studdard married Surata Zuri McCants, the athletic pair, both 53, exchanged vows in front of 140 family and friends, including Today host Matt Lauer and singer-songwriter Corey Hart.

Chris Evert and Greg Norman wed on Saturday in the Bahamas.

Evert's youngest son Colton, 12, served as ring bearer, and sons Nick, 14, and Alex, 16, walked her down the aisle. Also present were Greg Norman's daughter Morgan, 23, and son Gregory Jr., 21, who served as best man.

The wedding weekend kicked off on Friday with, natch, a golf and tennis tournament for guests. Wines from Greg Norman Estates (not half bad) were served at both the Friday rehearsal dinner and Saturday's reception.

Chris Evert and Greg Norman got engaged December 9 while traveling in South Africa. This is the second marriage for both

Perhaps you've noticed: Fergie is frickin' ripped.

Her concerts alone will keep her in decent shape - but you don't get that body without working out. Fergie and her trainer, Natasha, recently shared her awesome workout tips. Check it out below - and then get off the couch!

Carrie Fisher Pre-Weight Loss

Cardio training: A half-hour, 3-to-5-mile run or a 45-50 minute 5-mile run. Not necessarily at a very fast pace, however.

Shoulders: Work the front and back of the shoulder, using 1.5-kg weights. Front raises for 2 minutes then side raises for 2 minutes, with as many reps as she can fit in. The key to this celebrity weight loss plan is to do a lot of them.

Biceps: Regular bicep curls using rubber bands. Stand with your feet apart, holding the handles so you do front curl with your arms very close to your chest. Do the right arm, then left, then both together - 20-25 on each.

Seen here on her almost-daily jog, Fergie is a workout champ!

Triceps: We lift a long bar on the bench as she lays back her back, for 20-25 reps. Then the fiancee of Josh Duhamel does as many tight push-ups as she can. It might be one, four or sometimes up to 25.

Legs/butt: Fergie's legs are so naturally toned, she can skimp on this (lucky), but she does do do squats - around 15-20, in three sets.

Yoga: Fergie does yoga on the ground to maintain her extreme flexibility. She does the "chair" pose and holds it for up to three minutes. Then the "warrior" one and two position for up to 2.5 minutes.

Abs: Start with basic crunches, then start adding things each time. At a certain point, she lifts her legs to a 90-degree angle, then straight out in front, with shoulder blades off the ground. About 20 in each.

Cool down
: As with all celebrity workouts, it's important to stretch out afterwards. Whatever muscles she just worked out, Fergie stretches them out for at least 3 minutes while she relaxes and gets her breathing down.

We suggested yesterday that Audrina Patridge and Mario Lopez would make a hot couple ... but what about Audrina and David Cook instead?

The American Idol winner and The Hills star met up at a bash honoring a Glamour magazine editor in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

A Little Lost in Thought

We know Audrina's dating Tal Cooperman and David has a thing for Kimberly Caldwell... but we think they'd make a cute couple. Do you?

What do you think? Should Audrina Patridge and David Cook date?

Kevin Federline wants Britney Spears to play a major role in the lives of Sean Preston and Jayden James. Just not a bigger role than his.

The FedEx man's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, spoke to E! News in the wake of Thursday's all-day mediation session, in which both sides were seeking to hash out a custody agreement in advance of an August trial.

Stockholm Spears

"Kevin is seeking to maintain the sole legal and physical custody that he presently has," Kaplan said. "There's nothing magical about 50-50."

"There's nothing magical about 60-40. What's magical is that whatever order is in place, it best suits the best interests of the children."

Which, ideally, would give the 30-year-old Kevin Federline full custody of his sons, simply making permanent the present temporary order.

Ever since Britney's epic January meltdowns, K-Fed's had sole legal custody.

"Kevin Federline has had ustody since January," Kaplan noted. "He wants that to become the permanent order at trial, and Britney's visitation to be consistent with what the court expanded it to this week."

Namely, allowing the troubled Britney Spears overnight visitation with her sons (and Maddie Briann Aldridge's cousins), Sean Preston and Jayden James, which begin Saturday. She is also allowed two daytime visits a week.

David Letterman loves ripping on Spencer Pratt.

Then again, so do we, and there's certainly enough material.

Pratt at the Party

Last night, Mary-Kate Olsen visited The Late Show to promote her movie, The Wackness, but the conversation turned to - who else - Spencer Pratt.

During a lull in conversation, Letterman began ripping on "young Hollywood" and all the celebrities going to jail, wearing no panties, and so on.

Turns out Mary-Kate attended prestigious Crossroads School in Santa Monica, Calif., with Spencer (other alumni include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Jack Black, Brody Jenner, Whitney Port, Jonah Hill, Cash Warren and many more).

According to Mary-Kate, Spencer is indeed "wormy" and "oily" (Dave's words) and used to storm off the soccer field in hissy fits! See clip below ...

Move over, Larry Mendte. You've got creepy stalker company.

The unstable fellow who's allegedly been stalking teen celebrities Aly and AJ Michalka via blog, email, and phone, just got arrested.

Rex Mettler, 42, was nabbed by police in Lancaster, Ohio.

The supposed stalker was tracked for weeks by the L.A. County Sheriff, and sources say the authorities had been tracking "threatening e-mails and blog entries" from Mettler's computer. Yeah. Guy is not un-shady.

Rex Mettler

Rex Mettler has been charged with one felony count of menacing by stalking for his alleged harassment of the teen pop-singing duo Aly and AJ Michalka.

In addition to their rare blend of dance-pop magic, Aly and AJ are also actresses, appearing regularly on (shockingly) the Disney Channel.

The sisters have also appeared on General Hospital.
