Free Britney

Free Britney

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


Not even Jack Bauer could get out of this one.

The actor who plays him, Kiefer Sutherland, pleaded no contest Tuesday to a charge of driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit and will serve 30 days in county jail under terms of a plea agreement.

Attorney Blair Berk entered the plea on behalf of Kiefer Sutherland, who was not present. As part of the arrangement, Sutherland must also enroll in an 18-month alcohol-education class and attend weekly alcohol-therapy sessions.

The charge of driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 percent or higher stemmed from a traffic stop in Los Angeles last month.

A second misdemeanor charge, driving under the influence, was dropped.

Kiefer Sutherland is on probation for a 2004 drunk driving arrest. Superior Court Judge Stuart M. Rice revoked the actor's probation in that case.

Sutherland, star of Fox's 24, could face six months in jail for violating probation. Sentencing is set for December 21, the same day the show begins its winter break.

And the list of celebrities arrested for DUI - and even serving time behind bars, albeit briefly - continues to swell. Who's next?



Please, Britney, give us less.

We've already seen Britney Spears topless, wearing no pants, goin' clubbing with no underwear, and pretty much nude. What is an uncut version of "Gimme More" gonna do for us, really? Besides give us an excuse to talk about her?

Not much. But nonetheless, here's Britney Spears topless except for very carefully placed "pasties" in this raw version of the "Gimme More" music video...


As you can see, an almost naked Britney Spears is seen taking off a leather vest while dancing around a stripper pole as she moans "Gimme More." The "singer" then thrusts her body to the beat while holding up her breasts with her bare hands, and sometimes with her vest as well. Oooh yeah, this is HOT stuff.

Sort of. Or not really. Who hasn't seen Britney Spears nude or darn close to it at this point? Take a seat, J.R. Rotem. It was a rhetorical question.



Lily Allen has something to "smile" about.

Claiming she's as big of a bad-ass lush as Amy Winehouse is a losing battle (one that she shouldn't mind losing, really), she's also losing something else: weight!

The songstress has been flaunting a newly svelte body all over Paris this week during fashion week. So how did she drop from a size 12 to an 8?

Surprisingly, not hard drugs, bulimia or starvation. Hypnosis.

Allen slimmed down with the help of Susan Hepburn, a known quack psychotherapist who (for $600 an hour) implants messages into clients' minds, reminding them to stop eating if full.

She's good at what she does, too. Take a look at Keira Knightley, Kate Bosworth, Mischa Barton and Nicole Richie (before she got knocked up, that is).

According to the Daily Mail, Hepburn also teaches clients to associate healthy activities, such as working out in the gym, with happiness. We would love to see this doctor join the Grey's Anatomy cast.

"After the hypnotism, I want to go to the gym every day, otherwise I feel really bad," Allen, 22, said. "I just want to get more toned and healthy. I'm really good about everything at the moment. I've never been happier."

Lily Allen's self-confidence certainly has increased since last spring. In May, the "Smile" singer posted a melancholy blog post on her MySpace page in which she blogged about her body image issues.

"I used to pride myself on being strong minded and not being just some stupid girl obsessed with the way I look," Lily Allen wrote. "I felt like it didn't matter if I was a bit chubby cause I'm not a model, I'm a singer."

"I'm afraid I am not strong and have fallen victim to the evil machine. I write to you in a sea of tears from my hotel bed in Seattle, I have spent the past hour researching gastric bypass surgery, and liposuction."

Maybe someone should try to hypnotize that wreck Britney Spears into caring about her kids and laying off the booze once in awhile. Just an idea.



Starbucks in hand and throngs of celebrity news photographers in pursuit, Britney Spears visited with her kids and ran errands, stopping by the local car wash and cell phone store. Probably needs a plan with more anytime minutes.

All in a day's work for a fallen star and train wreck.

Prior to running her errands, the "singer" enjoyed supervised visit with sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, on Monday. The court has ordered that Spears must be monitored while with the kids. Always a good sign for a young mother.

After some court-supervised fun, Britney handed off the little mistakes off to K-Fed's bodyguards, who shuttled them safely back to Kevin Federline's house.

Britney Spears is all smiles. And possibly drunk at all times.

After sending them away, the sad star then went back inside her own house with her own mother, Lynne Spears, by her side. Well, at least one Spears mom and her kids seem to be okay. Jamie Lynn Spears is also in town!

What is this, April?

Lauren Conrad was seen leaving Hyde late Monday night right behind American Idol reject alumnus Chris Richardson. Romance rumors were brewing last Spring when they were spotted together during Chris' 15 minutes of fame.

At the MTV Movie Awards, Lauren Conrad reportedly said that Chris Richardson is a "Very sweet kid, but just a friend of mine... I'm not dating anyone."

Are they dating now? Who knows! But check out these pics of Lauren Conrad and Chris Richardson taken separately last night in and around Hyde.

Lauren Conrad. Chris Richardson. Richrad? Lauris? We give up.

Sadly, The Hills was a repeat (lame catch-up show to be exact) last night, so we don't have our usual recap for you. The drama returns next week, though!

Follow the jump for another Lauren Conrad picture of The Hills' leading lady at the club, along with a rare sighting of beautiful, underused co-star Whitney Port!

An investigation concluded that Danny Bonaduce won't face charges after tossing Jonny Fairplay over his shoulders at an awards show.

Document released by the district attorney's office said there is "insufficient evidence" to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Bonaduce committed battery because Fairplay, a former Survivor star, "initiated contact and acted offensively."

Jonny Fairplay, 33, said he underwent 2 1/2 hours of dental surgery after Bonaduce tossed him over his shoulders at the Fox Reality Channel's Really Awards last week.

After jumping on Danny Bonaduce, Jonny Fairplay landed on his face.

Documents say what video shows - that Fairplay jumped on Bonaduce, "wrapping his legs around the suspect and thrusting his pelvis into the suspect's body."

This is also what's being reported in a police investigation into Criss Angel and Britney Spears. Just kidding. But wouldn't that be funny?

Deputy District Attorney Jeffrey Boxer wrote that Bonaduce didn't intentionally injure Fairplay and his "actions fell within the realm of self-defense."

Fairplay's police report claimed the actor walked on stage uninvited and made a "derogatory statement." Jonny Fairplay later said he was giving Bonaduce a hug, one of his "signature moves."

A video of the incident captured the sound of the audience booing.

Jonny Fairplay, a grade-A nimrod whose real name is Jon Dalton, appeared in the 2003 CBS reality show "Survivor: Pearl Islands."

Danny Bonaduce, 48, was a child star on "The Partridge Family."

He starred in the 2005 reality show "Breaking Bonaduce," and has recently co-hosted Adam Carolla's radio show. Guy has some anger issues.

With her music career in shambles, the insane, court-ordered sober Britney Spears applied for a new job Thursday as ... wait for it ... a bartender!

According to TMZ, sources inside the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, Calif., say Britney checked in Thursday and, at around 10:30 at night, went down (no, not on Howie Day) and started talking with a bartender.

We're told Spears told the bartender she wanted to do what she did - then asked for an application and got one from the night manager to apply for work in the hotel's "Cameo Bar."

We reiterate: The girl needs a whole team of psychologists, pronto.

Britney Spears' application is currently in the hands of Human Resources.

The website of the hotel says the bar "serves imported and California wines, premium drinks ... including Raspberry Lemon Drop martinis." Sexy.

This might be the worst possible gig for a mother required to undergo drug and alcohol tests if she wants to regain custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James, but then again, this is Britney Spears. Are you that surprised?

Somehow, we're not. Spears checked out the next morning. No word yet if the hotel is considering actually hiring Britney to pour their booze. If they do, we're wondering if Alli Sims will start waiting tables.



On the third episode of The Bachelor, hunky Brad Womack puts the remaining women to their strongest test yet by sending his hunky twin brother, Chad Womack, into a cocktail party to see who can tell the difference.

Womack, BradNot entirely sure what this whole charade is supposed to prove, but we'll go with it.

Most of the women realize the switch right away but a few are in the dark. Not everyone is all that bright on this here show. One group of aspiring wives heads to the circus, while another goes sailing. The drama is building already people.

Chris Harrison, as always our host for the eve, kicks off the show by dropping off a "date box" for Stephy, McCarten, Jenni, Lindsey, Sarah, and DeAnna.

The girls find out they'll be heading to the circus. Brad Womack gets the girls a luxury box and everyone gets to be in the greatest show on Earth.

We're talking about the circus, not Dancing with the Stars here.

At the circus, Jenni gets some valued alone time with Brad. She goes on to ask our man if a long distance relationship is something he'd be willing to try, or at least consider. She is thinking ahead, knowing hse needs to stay in Arizona, to honor her commitment as a heart surgeon. Or Phoenix Suns dancer. We forget.

And at the end of the night, nine roses are dispensed while three women get the heave-ho. How did all of the night's action play out? You won't believe how it all went down. Find out in our sister site's episode guide to The Bachelor.

... For some dinner. Hey, even movie stars gotta eat. While filming his movie Valkyrie (which has already suffered a few notable setbacks) in Berlin, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes look comfort in another adults-only dinner.

As much as we ridicule these two, they don't provide much celebrity gossip news, regularly leaving Suri Cruise at home (as they really should) as is the case here, on Saturday, as they hit up Vietnamese restaurant Si An.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes: Not too interesting.

Sure, we love celebrities we can make fun of for doing stupid things. But it's also nice to see that not everyone with a young child acts like Britney Spears.

You know, despite different appearances, Andy Samberg and Kevin Federline are very much the same in the end. Both are blessed with impressive talents - Andy Samberg at comedy, K-Fed at making kids. To each their own.

Perhaps it is fitting, then, that Andy Samberg opened up the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live with a funny impersonation of the great FedEx man. It's no "Iran So Far," but Samberg once again proves he's the star of SNL.

No matter what they say... kids gotta eat, yo! That's right. You heard it here. Kevin Federline is slightly more responsible than Britney Spears! Word up.
