Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.

Britney Spears was rolling in her grave as deadbeat spouse Kevin Federline was spotted with one of his many children Saturday. In this picture, he's chilling with 23-month old Kaleb, his son with Shar Jackson. K-Fed also has a three-year old daughter, Kori, with Jackson, the D-list actress he ditched for Brit.

Sunday's World Cup final between Italy and France in Berlin, Germany, will be more than a match to decide the world's best football team. It will be a party, a celebration for all the citizens of our planet to revel in.

"We don't want a rigid, serious ceremony but instead want to show that Germany is a country where you can dance and celebrate," said Dieter Brell, the man who developed the concept of the World Cup's closing ceremony. "I think it's time to ignite that flame."

Nicole Kidman and new husband Keith Urban -- known affectionately to us here at the Gossip as Kurban -- spent the July 4 holiday with friends and family in Nashville, Tenn.

The newlyweds started off Independence Day by having a club gym opened up exclusively for them, then took a leisurely stroll (below) through Centennial Park in downtown Nashville, right across from the Vanderbilt University campus. Strolling hand-in-hand, the happy couple made sure to walk through The Parthenon, a full-scale replica of the original Greek Parthenon.

North Korea is back in the news this week, with the renegade communist state conducting more missile tests and exuding much machismo.

As one of the world's few remaining autocratic tyrants, 65-year old Kim Jong Il, the country's head of state, hates America with a passion. Or so he claims. We think he's merely jealous, and afraid of a hostile takeover. The supposed movie buff clearly fashions himself a Hollywood icon. See below:

According to Us Weekly, Nicole Richie has gained a few pounds, "by eating protein bars, drinking Progain energy shakes prescribed by a holistic physician and working out twice a week to build muscle."

Seriously. A magazine wrote that. Richie will be eating protein bars and working out right around the time Kevin Federline gets off his lazy, freeloading ass and gets a job. But she must have actually eaten something, because she now looks like a standard Hollywood anorexic, rather than an impoverished, freakish she-goblin from another galaxy. See below.

Just when we thought Britney Spears was finally getting it together and doing something about the train wreck that is her life, we came across this picture in US Weekly.

Well, just kidding about her getting it together. Obviously that isn't happening anytime soon. But this image is too good to let pass by. Here we see little Sean Preston, in all his infintile glory, dressed like a little... um... Kevin Federline. Gross! Mom is looking pretty trashy here as well. Late night, Brit?

After having endured a "dysfunctional" and "chaotic" childhood, actress Ashley Judd underwent a 47-day program at a Texas treatment center last February in order to confront issues of her past -- including depression, isolation and co-dependent relationships.

"I needed help. I was in so much pain," Judd told Glamour magazine, adding that she slept to combat depression and exhibited a compulsion to clean.

She may be off the market, but Faith Hill is still the hottest female country singer, according to a reader poll in Country Weekly magazine.

The 38-year old, whose marriage to fellow country star Tim McGraw has gotten her almost as much publicity as eight #1 hits, easily won the poll over a number of talented younger competitors.
