Britney Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, and Britney's younger sister, Jamie Lynn  Spears, flew from Kentwood, La. to Los Angeles Friday evening. Could they finally be trying the hatchet with the estranged, insane star?

We'll see, but Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears were all smiles as they made a stop at Taco Bell late night, acting like retards in front of about 100 members of the celebrity news media. Hey, it's nice to see her in good spirits!

There was only one problem, though - Britney was shouting her order through her raised car window, and the Taco Bell employees couldn't hear her.

Yes, those power windows can be tough to figure out. Fortunately, some nice people from the celebrity photo agencies that follow her every move placed the order and brought Britney and Jamie Lynn their food. Thanks y'all!

All is not well in the land of Britney, though, as sources say her first scheduled visit with her children since being stripped of custody was a total disaster.

Britney Spears was to have a scheduled visit with her kids at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, surrendering the kids to Kevin Federline later that day.

On Wednesday night, Britney decided she wouldn't see her children at either of her two homes - but rather at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, reportedly went ballistic.

TMZ cites sources as saying a parenting coach is supposed to be present for the visit, and Kaplan felt it was only appropriate for the coach to counsel Britney on how to take care of her kids at home - not at a hotel.

Britney Spears, who checked into the swanky hotel at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday and then checked out at 2:00 a.m. Thursday, went back to her Malibu home and decided not to fight for her desire for a hotel visit with her children.

At 10:00 a.m. Thursday, the scheduled time for visit, a Kevin Federline bodyguard arrived at Britney Spears' Malibu home and rang the bell.

He waited 40 minutes with Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline inside the car, but no one came out. Confused, they eventually all went back to K-Fed's.

Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia are not dating, okay? They're just spotted together, a lot, and can't take their eyes off each other.

Then again, if the alternative is watching NHL action, perhaps that doesn't mean as much as we think it does. After all, what are they supposed to do? Count on the L.A. Kings game Saturday night to entertain them?


But come on. You can't deny the exchange of "I am going to tear your clothes off in a cheap motel later" looks between Halo in the picture below.

Hayden Panettiere, 18, and Milo Ventimiglia, 30, attracted lots of attention from fans and cameras throughout the game. Including this woman who just wants them to knock it off with the PDAs so she can watch in peace! Gosh. 

Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere: Big fans of the NHL. And each other.

Regardless of whether or not they are anything more than friends, Heroes returns tonight with an all-new episode, entitled "Kindred." Hayden, Milo and their host of talented co-stars will be prominently featured!

Which self-respecting guy doesn't secretly lust for a bad girl? Kat Von D, the star of TLC's "Miami Ink" and "LA Ink," screams bad ass with her raven-colored hair, love for rock and heavy metal and more tattoos than you could possibly count.

Not only is Kat Von D a hard-partying wild child with a hot body (though every inch of it being covered in tats might be a slight turn-off for uptight guys), she's a gifted tattoo artist to boot. What's not to love?

Since she began the hottest spinoff on TV in LA Ink (eat your heart out, Private Practice), the wild side of the former Miami Ink co-star has really taken hold.

As if she weren't inked up enough, Kat and her boyfriend just got matching tattoos with each other's names on them - and they've only been dating a month!

While most would wait more than a few weeks to tag their lover's name onto their skin for life, the LA Ink hottie and her long haired, Shaggy-like boyfriend showed off the new tats at a Rolling Stone Hot Party last week.

Perhaps a second, tattoo-removal spinoff is in the works for Kat Von D?

In really random news, the boyfriend in question is Alexander Orbie Lee Kelton Orbison, son of Roy Orbison and drummer for Cisco Adler's band, Whitestarr.

Also interestingly, Kat Von D was on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last week and actually said she'd never tattoo a boyfriend's name on her clients if it were a new relationship. Someone doesn't follow her own good advice!

Some stories, such as Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon getting married, really come out of the blue. Others, such as Lil Wayne getting arrested, don't.

The B-list hip-hop star was arrested in Boise, Idaho, on a felony fugitive charge after authorities in Georgia accused him of possessing a controlled substance.

Lil Wayne at the Royal Wedding

The 25-year-old rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was arrested after his Friday concert at Qwest Arena and booked into the Ada County jail.

Because of the type of charge, Lil Wayne was not eligible for bond and was not released in time to make his typical Saturday night concert. Shame.

After his arrest, the jail was bombarded with dozens of angry phone calls from Lil Wayne fans, of which apparently there are many, as well as from concert promoters.

"Every other phone call that we've picked up have been about him â€" people who have tickets wanting to know where his concert will be, people calling to see if it's true that he's incarcerated," said a deputy who didn't want her name used.

Lil Wayne is scheduled to be formally charged Tuesday and will be asked at that point if he plans to waive his extradition to Georgia, authorities said.

An e-mail to Lil Wayne's publicist at Universal Music was not returned. Carter's previous brushes with the law include a 2005 drug arrest in Atlanta, and another bust for weed and prescription drugs in August 2006.

His "Tha Carter II" album, released in 2005, has sold about 2 million copies worldwide. He recently was voted "Hottest MC in the Game" by a panel at MTV.

Speaking of prestigious honors, The Hollywood Gossip recently named Kanye West the most talented and egomaniacal rapper in the industry.

Chalk this up in the "photos of celebrities The Hollywood Gossip loves but never thought we'd ever see hanging out together" category!

Victoria Beckham is a celebrity best known for being married to metrosexual hunk and part-time soccer player David Beckham. And for having giant boobs.

Marilyn Manson's ex-wife is known mostly for her burlesque dancing, nude sexual photos in martini glasses and stripping, as well as for a recent PETA campaign.

Here, Dita Von Teese and the former Posh Spice leave the Ritz Hotel and head to the Chanel fashion show at the Grand Palais in Paris.

Victoria Beckham. Dita Von Teese. Together at last.

When celebrities and hotties of this caliber collide, we can only wonder: Which one would you rather... take out to dinner? And which hot body do you prefer?

The last time we heard from the classy J.R. Rotem, he was producing Hayden Panettiere's new album and talking about how last winter, he railed Britney Spears wheelbarrow style. A true gentleman kisses and tells to Blender.

But apparently the greasy producer's bragging hasn't damaged relations between the pair, as Britney Spears was spotted all over town with J.R. Rotem yesterday!

Britney Spears. JR Rotem. The return of the wheelbarrow!

The hot duo did some shopping on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood. While in one store, Britney found a yellow top, fur wrap, leather jacket and nice cap that suited her horrendous fashion tastes. Reports say she said "Gimme More" and paid for a ton of stuff. Just kidding. No way she said that.

She did don her new duds as she left the store, though, with Jonathan "JR" Rotem by her side. Later in the day, the couple stopped at Britney Spears' favorite place, Starbucks, where a member of the celebrity news media dumped a cup of coffee onto Britney's car and other photographers nearby.

Pretty standard procedure really. To cap it all off, Britney and J.R. Rotem made a stop at a recording studio, with Britney Spears looking like she'd enjoyed her neck being sucked on for a good while in the recent past. Hey, a girl's gotta get some.

Ah, young white trash love. Here's hoping this couple of destiny enjoys many more wonderful, romantic days just like this one.

Britney Spears looked distressed following a judge's decision allowing her only supervised visits with her sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.

During runs to Ralph's Supermarket in L.A. and a local Starbucks, the 25-year-old was seen clutching her Yorkie, London, while crying in anguish.

She appeared to be in better spirits later while enjoying a dinner of quesadillas and margarita with friend Sam Lutfi at Casa Escobar in Malibu.

On her way out of the eatery, Britney Spears showered the paparazzi with praise. "I love you guys," she told celebrity news photographers.

Her good mood didn't last long, however. After she climbed into her car, she began sobbing uncontrollably once again. Girl needs a whole team of shrinks.

Meanwhile, Britney Spears' former bodyguard Tony Barretto is back in the news. Us Weekly learned via a statement released by Barretto's lawyer, Gloria Allred, that he has filed an abuse claim, or "Child Abuse Referral," against Spears.

The referral gives the Department of Child and Family Services the legal power to investigate Spears' care Sean Preston and Jayden James. The DCFS has said that its professionals will look into the matter.

Britney Spears cries in anguish. Meanwhile, former bodyguard and notable land mass Tony Barretto cries, in a manner of speaking, for help from officials.

"I call on Britney Spears to cooperate with the investigation of Children and Family Services," Glorida Allred said on behalf of Tony Barretto in a statement.

This is not the first referral that has been filed regarding Britney Spears with the DCFS. She has been investigated and cleared three times in the past two years, for driving with Sean Preston in her lap, not preventing Sean Preston from falling out of his high chair, and contributing to poor hygiene and eating habits of both sons.

Tony Barretto filed a declaration to the court September 17 claiming Britney Spears used drugs and alcohol while caring for her children.

Since then, Barretto has been on a national media tour touting his concern for poor Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline as his motive for coming forward with information about the pop-mom's erratic behavior.

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.

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.
