Don't ever count them out. Just when you think the bar can't possibly be lowered any further, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag take the celebrity photo cake again.

There's nothing like a staged photo shoot designed to look like candid but which actually depicts two D-list media whores shamelessly begging for attention.

Gross Speidi Smooch

Anyway, here's a nice Spencer-Heidi picture for your mockery enjoyment, in which The Hills' most-hated dude poses with a pair of melons. And some pumpkins!

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: Good, wholesome October fun.

We will say this, though. Spencer Pratt is significantly better at getting paid for these "spontaneous" photo shoots than he is at running his own website.

It's the moment we've been anticipating for so long. Or at least since an hour ago when we first learned about it. Britney Spears' music video from her new single, "Gimme More," has been released online as of this morning.

Its premiere on MTV is set for October 8. "Gimme More" was featured during Britney's epic meltdown at the MTV VMAs last month, and the first single from her upcoming album, Blackout, which is reportedly set to drop November 13.

Gimme more? Give us less? Check the video out and let us know your thoughts.

There are few times, as a celebrity gossip site, when celebrities leave you at a loss for words. But that's where Amy Winehouse leaves us. There is so little we can add when photos of this talented singer and train wreck.

Just the same, we're happy to post them for your enjoyment and puzzlement. And to celebrate the joyous fact that Amy Winehouse and her equally insane husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, have defied the odds in surviving another day in this world.

Hot couple alert! Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel take a stroll through the streets of Toronto, Ontario. after having brunch at a place called Eggstacy.

Get it? Eggs? Ecstasy? We love puns. And most breakfast foods.

Un-Biel-ievable Girl

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel: Timbielake?

A moment after this photo was taken, a celebrity news reporter was given a black eye by Justin Timberlake. Just kidding! But he's not a fan of Hollywood gossip.

Justin Timberlake is in town shooting a new movie, "The Love Guru," with Mike Myers and Jessica Alba. Jessica Biel is in town because, well, so is Jessica Alba.

Maybe they go on some sweet double dates with Alba and Cash Warren?

Danny Bonaduce is being investigated for battery after tossing ex-Survivor contestant Jonny Fairplay over his shoulder during an award show Tuesday.

Jonny Fairplay filed a report Wednesday claiming his teeth were knocked out during the incident at the FOX Reality Really Channel awards held at the Hollywood club Boulevard3, according to the Associated Press.

Police received the battery report around 2 a.m. at a Hollywood hospital where Fairplay was being treated, Officer April Harding told the AP.

"He had one tooth broken, another tooth missing from his gum line and two other teeth that were loose," she said.

During the show, Fairplay was being jeered onstage when Danny Bonaduce came up and said into the mic, "They're booing because they hate you."

Jonny Fairplay, a wrestler who came in third Survivor: Pearl Islands in 2003, was criticized by viewers for having lied about the death of his grandmother in order to win sympathy from other competitors.

In a video clip of the incident (see below), Fairplay can be seen jumping into Bonaduce's arms, which he says was just a hug. In response, Danny Bonaduce tossed Fairplay over his head and onto the floor. Jonny Fairplay then got up and ran offstage while holding his hand over his mouth.

Later, Danny Bonaduce told TMZ that Fairplay "started to throttle me," and that he only threw him to halt the attack. He added, "I'm sorry he got hurt."

For his part, Jonny Fairplay told the site that he underwent two and a half hours of dental surgery and still needs additional work. Here's a video of the incident:

While the first few days of Britney Spears' week have been rough, with a court taking away custody of the singer's two sons and all, things are turning around!

Well, maybe.

The Trailer Park Princess

Britney is back to work - if you can call it that - filming her new music video for "Gimme More." And she just got a vote of confidence from her record label, Jive, which called her "one of the great recording artists of her time," in a statement released to the press this week. See below.

Britney Spears shoots the video for "Gimme More." Hey, it's gotta be better than the MTV Music Video Awards debacle if they can actually edit the thing, right?

"Jive is enormously excited about Britney Spears' new album, and confident that it will secure her reputation as one of the great recording artists of her time. As Britney's label, it's not our place to comment on her personal issues, but we do care about her and support her. There's no question that when performers attain the level of celebrity that Britney has, they tend to be treated by the press and public as if they were just characters in cartoons or soap operas, and we forget they're human.

People say that's the trade-off a celebrity makes for success - that if you want to make it big, you have to surrender your privacy or the ability to lead a normal life. But sometimes you make that bargain before you realize what it entails. Britney's a grown woman who makes her own choices, and we respect that. But she faces challenges that most of us can't imagine."

TRANSLATION: We have Britney Spears under contract for a certain number of albums and are paying her producers a lot of money, and therefore have no choice but to call in the spin doctors and milk this new album for every dollar we can before severing ties with her sometime around 2009.

There's nothing in life like a good friend. Lauren Conrad knows she can always to Audrina Patridge or Whitney Port when she needs support on The Hills!

Similarly, after a judge ordered that her ex, Kevin Federline, will retain custody of their two sons, Sean and Jayden, and that she will only be given supervised visitation rights, Britney Spears found some support in her longtime pal.

Worse For the Wear

And cutie. And enabler. And maybe cousin. And past personal assistant. And possible hanger-on trying to get famous and/or rich as Britney Spears' b!tch.

Whatever you want to call her, we're talking about Alli Sims. Here, on a nighttime outing in Beverly Hills Wednesday, Alli Sims is rocking a USC Law t-shirt (studying up on how to embezzle and launder Britney Spears' money maybe?) while gazing longingly at Brit. They're like... kissin' cousins or something.

The Hollywood Gossip's opening odds of Britney Spears and Alli Sims becoming lovers by the end of 2008? 3:1. Odds of Alli using Britney for personal gain? 6:5.

We'd tell Spencer Pratt not to quit his day job, but since this apparently is his day job, he should probably just get a whole lot better at it.

Everyone knows the conniving, pimply star of The Hills doesn't have game with the ladies. Turns out Spencer's writing and web management skillz are similarly bad.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are Tools

Spencer Pratt's official site consists of the same photos and snippets of articles you have already seen on Us Weekly and a hundred other celebrity gossip sites like this one. Wow! Really creative stuff, dude. Such insightful content!

Moreover, the links on his site are black... against a black background, making them impossible to see. Spencer also showcases his impressive 9th grade reading level with headlines such as "Us Magazine: New cover onstands now!!" Combine all this with a heinous design and Pratt earns a solid D+ in blogging.

The only thing saving it from an F, in case you were wondering, are some of the comments correctly pointing out the suckitude of Spencer and Heidi.

With Halloween a few weeks away, The Hollywood Gossip is here to help with potential costume ideas. Here's one of our interns in a spooky Amy Winehouse getup!

Where Am I?

Just kidding! That's Amy Winehouse herself!

But come on, how scary would this be on October 31!? Especially with that makeup and the nice touches of industrial size hair clips and hickey! Boo!

Extra points go to couples who dress up as Amy and Blake Fielder-Civil and attend a party together. Preferably while shooting up in between the toes.

In reality, the 24-year-old was snapped in London, looking her usual self, after stopping off for another gourmet meal... at McDonald's.

Hayden Panettiere takes a break from being pumped up about the return of Heroes (and being pumped by Milo Ventimiglia, if you know what we mean), filling up her car on the way to the studio yesterday.

Smokin' Hayden

Something about Hayden Panettiere holding a hose just turns us on. You?

We imagine this is almost a daily occurrence for the petite, 18-year-old star and her gas-guzzling Porsche Cayenne. Way to look out for the environment!

We'll have you know, Hayden, that our celebrity gossip interns have to ride bikes to work. Partly because they can't afford cars on such meager wages, of course.

But still, we do our part to go green here at The Hollywood Gossip, and are proud of it. It's time celebrities hold up their end of the bargain.
