She wasn't drunk, but moments before Britney Spears caused a three-car crash on Saturday night, she was ... putting on her makeup behind the wheel!

Women.

How do we know? According to TMZ, the guy she hit was checking her out - admiring the white Mercedes and the gal putting on makeup while driving.

It wasn't until after she collided with his car at an estimated 10-15 mph that he realized the woman was none other than Britney Spears.

After the accident, Spears' bodyguard apologized, but Britney did not. She and the 21-year-old crash victim only exchanged a few words, however she did mention that she was on the way to dinner with her mom, Lynne Spears.

No word on whether they were planning on hitting up McDonald's.

A field sobriety test was then conducted by officers on Spears, and the crashee says that officers performed a "follow my finger test" on Britney.

This file photo of Britney Spears driving does not show her putting on makeup, but she does have Blackberry in hand, ready to do some furious texting. OMFG!

At first she was giggly during the test, but then she got real serious real quick. Good idea. Britney was the only person involved who was tested.

The CHP says it wasn't the Britney Spears factor that convinced them to perform the test after her accident - it was the timing of the wreck.

There was "no odor, nor any kind of erratic behavior" that suggested Britney Spears was under the influence, but after an accident, officers are inclined to "do a standard check on most drivers, especially during those hours."

While no injuries were reported on the scene of the accident, the man claims that he woke up with a sore back the next day. Hmm, lawsuit anyone?

A lawsuit filed Friday alleges that two celebrity news photographers set up Heath Ledger, who died of a lethal combination of drugs this winter, at a 2006 SAG after party, plying him with cocaine, then secretly videotaping him.

In the suit, the plaintiff, Jane Doe (a pseudonym), who was working as a freelance reporter for People magazine at the time, and recounts events that she says took place at the Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles.

She alleges that she and her boyfriend at the time, Darren Banks, one of the pair of photographers for celebrity photo agency Splash News named in the lawsuit, met Heath Ledger on the grounds of the hotel.

Her story is that Banks brought him, along with Splash photographer Eric Munn, to a room Doe booked for the evening assignment. Munn gave Ledger cocaine and the actor already had some of his own. Munn then left the room.

From the balcony, Munn secretly recorded everything. Doe claims she didn't know that she was starring in a celebrity video at the time. Once Ledger saw a camera, he demanded the tape be destroyed and the photographers agreed.

However, after his death, the tape somehow sold to Entertainment Tonight for $200,000. Entertainment Tonight and The Insider were hit with a storm of criticism after promoting their video exclusive about Heath's drug use.

The shows ultimately did not air the segment and issued an apology. This is one of several rumors that have followed Ledger's passing and cast a pall over the actor's legacy. He is also rumored to have fathered a second child out of wedlock.

Heath Ledger died January 22 alone in his New York apartment. He would have turned 29 this April 4, the same birthday as Jamie Lynn Spears.

The handsome, talented actor will be starring, posthumously, in his final movie role in The Dark Knight, scheduled for a July 2008 release.

Celebrity news readers are everywhere, from Hollywood to Boston's Fenway Park, where a Red Sox fan snapped these photos and sent them to us on Saturday.

Cheering on his beloved team as it hosted the rival New York Yankees, this fan (for some unknown reason) felt a strong need to make bold statements about certain celebrities we know and love. Hard to argue with him on this point ...

Yes, friends, Tom Cruise is indeed insane. Few things in the celebrity news world have been more evident in recent years. He married a hot robot in Katie Holmes and has a cute baby in Suri Cruise, but the Scientologist is certifiably nuts alright.

On the reverse side of the celeb gossip fan's sign was a separate proclamation, one which may elicit some strong reactions from devotees of Britney Spears ...

Britney Spears a terrible mother? Noooo way, you're joking. The little drawings of Sean Preston and Jayden James (top right) say it all. So cute, so innocent, so ... sad.

Maybe one day soon, once her mental issues subside and she stops crashing cars, Britney can regain some custody or visitation with Sean and Jayden.

For now, though, her mothering "skills" involve parading around in no panties during late night Starbucks runs, so maybe no custody is for the best.

Britney Spears was involved in a minor traffic accident Saturday night on a West Los Angeles freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The two-car accident occurred about 8:20 p.m. local time on the northbound side of I-405 at the 101 freeway, CHP Officer Patrick Kimball confirmed.

"Britney Spears was driving a white Mercedes on the 101 Freeway, when she struck the rear of a Nissan that was in front of her," he said. "Britney Spears' car collided into the rear of a Nissan, which in turn hit another car."

In related news, it doesn't appear that Adnan Ghalib has collided with Britney's rear in some time, and he may even be with Kathy Griffin (!?) now.

Britney Spears was involved in a car accident... again.

No one was hurt, no tickets were issued, and all that good stuff. You may now safely return to the roads of Southern California, residents.

Prior to her latest auto accident, Spears - who somehow is still licensed to operate cars - spent most of the day at her Studio City home.

In any case, we're grateful that Britney is okay after this. And that Kevin Federline has full custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James.

In breaking celebrity fashion news, Heidi Montag debuted her clothing line, entitled Heidiwood, at a Friday evening fashion show in Hollywood, Calif.

Breathe, people. Breathe.

That is a Huge Rack

Models hit the catwalk to model Heidi's fashion label as "music" from her upcoming, as-yet-untitled pop album blared over the sound system.

So sorry we had to miss this event.

Heidi Montag, 21, worked the runway in sky-high black stiletto platform pumps, short black shorts and a midriff-baring, zebra print halter top.

"I love zebra print!" she said. "I'm obsessed with it!"

Somehow we don't see Heidi-wood sales skyrocketing.

The real head-turning moment of the night came when Spencer Pratt popped on stage and gave Heidi Montag two dozen long-stemmed pink roses before kissing her on the lips. You may vomit at will, fans of The Hills.

"I mean, you know, we're up, we're down," Montag said of her relationship with Spencer after the show. "It's just the routine."

Though they are not living together, "the bottom line is that we love each other," the former best friend of Lauren Conrad added. "We always have and we're just trying to figure out our stuff, like every other couple."

That makes sense, we suppose, since there is a human inside her (courtesy of Casey Aldridge). We've just never seen Jamie Lynn Spears' baby bump quite like this before ... the sidal action really accentuates that thing, don't you think?

Here's America's favorite unwed pregnant teen, who turned 17 and got her cute little butt engaged in the past month, doin' some shoppin' Thursday ...

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears Picture

Jamie Lynn Spears, 17, shows off her sexy, pregnant figure.

Supposedly given a due date of July 10, Jamie Lynn is gettin' ready to pop here pretty soon. This is by far the best Spears baby bump shot we've seen since Britney was still preggers with Jayden James (who we originally thought was Sutton Pierce)!

You've done well, Casey Aldridge. You've done well.

** UPDATE: JUNE 19 ** Sources confirm that Jamie Lynn Spears' baby was born this morning around 9:30. It's a girl named Maddie Briann! Yay! Congratulations to Jamie Lynn, Casey and the whole Spears family on the big news!

Really, at this point, who among us hasn't hit on that smokin' hot, dangerously young, petite blonde co-worker with the fine ass ... or told said blonde that, say, you're considering leaving your wife of 25 years just to be with her?

Smokin' hot Heroes star Hayden Panettiere is likely well-versed in this sort of conduct and talks about it in the following parody of a sexual harassment Public Service Announcement (PSA) on the Will Ferrell-owned site, FunnyorDie.

They're still denying it, but we know the truth - Rihanna and Chris Brown are a (HOT) couple. That's right, we are calling them out. Time to go public, peeps!

The latest evidence? Our man Chris Brown was spotted with a group of guys smiling and dancing in the HighLine Ballroom balcony at Rihanna's (HOT) Wednesday night concert for her charity, the Believe Foundation.

Rihanna Naked Pic?

Rihanna, dressed in a Goth-like tutu and rhinestone high heels, sang for nearly an hour. Tuesday, as we reported the duo showed up at Star Lounge for a friend's birthday party, and were hugging and dancing all night. Nice!

Rumors of a Chris Brown-Rihanna romance began around the time of their performance together at the MTV VMAs. Needless to say, they stole the show.

What do you think? Is Chris Brown seeing Rihanna naked? Or do you believe their denials? Does every celebrity gossip site on the Internets have it wrong?

That's the rumor going around celebrity news circles, but if one of the CBS show's stars has his way, it's not gonna be happening anytime soon.

Neil Patrick Harris says he doesn't want Britney Spears back on How I Met Your Mother - nothing personal, he says, but he simply doesn't think they need to have recovering celebrity train wrecks show up for cheap ratings boosts.

"I'm in the minority that our show does not need stunt casting in order to succeed," Harris said in an interview with TV Guide.

Neil Patrick Harris: Not hoping for a second Britney Spears cameo.

There were rumors that Britney might make another appearance on the show after her first one, which was generally considered a success by her low standards.

Seriously, though, she's been receiving treatment for her mental problems and any sort of work that she showed up for and didn't melt down during is solid.

Producers have reportedly been receptive to the idea of Britney's return, as has the singer's dad, Jamie Spears, who is open to her working in TV more.

She's also got an offer from 30 Rock, so stay tuned!
