In light of his recent heroics - coming to the rescue of the troubled Britney Spears at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center - Dr. Phil is set to publish a new memoir.

With their daughter on lockdown after a complete mental meltdown, did Lynne and Jamie Spears trust the medical professionals at Cedars-Sinai?

Hells no. They called Dr. Phil. Shortly after? Britney was released! It's a miracle! Here's a sneak peak at the Dr. Phil's new tell-all (with working title) ...

With a single September YouTube sob-fest, Chris Crocker became an androgynous Internet celebrity. In fact, this teenage Tennessean became a worldwide sensation and was pretty much the only thing people talked about the day after Britney Spears' infamous VMA performance (or implosion, more accurately).

But while Chris Crocker became famous to his YouTube appeal for celebrity gossip sites to "Leave Britney Alone!" - his opinion has changed in light of Britney's meltdown last Thursday and Friday.

"I officially retract my statement," Chris Crocker told the New York Post's Page Six. "Britney needs to not be left alone right now. I think if everyone left her alone, she could do some major damage to herself."

Chris Crocker's' concerns that Britney will harm herself echo her fans' fears that their once shining star is in real danger of burning out.

We're talking Anna Nicole Smith style here.

"The people close to her, they need to step up and help her at this time. Rally together and do what they can to save her life," Chris Crocker said.

We're guessing he didn't have Dr. Phil in mind.

Roger Clemens has never been afraid to give adversaries some chin music.

Normally, Roger's combativeness is directed at the hitters who step into the box against the fearsome right-hander. But now, Clemens is taking aim at the former trainer who alleges he took steroids, filing a lawsuit last night in his hometown of Houston just before his 60 Minutes interview with Mike Wallace.

The Houston Chronicle reports the seven-time Cy Young winner is suing Brian McNamee, his longtime trainer, for defamation of character, calling McNamee's allegations "false and defamatory." Clemens' lawsuit was filed electronically in Houston, just before Clemens' 60 Minutes interview, which aired last night.

"I don't know if I'll ever get the naysayers back... I don't know what I'm going to get. Maybe some of my name back," Roger Clemens said to Mike Wallace.

The lawsuit doesn't request a specific dollar amount, but Clemens' Houston lawyer, Rusty Hardin, said the lawsuit was filed to clear Clemens' name and discover how the allegations of his steroid use came about.

Aside from known user and a$$hole Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens was probably the biggest star to be outed by the Mitchell Report, a 20-month investigation conducted by former U.S. Senate majority leader George Mitchell into the rampant use of performance-enhancing drugs in the sport.

Citing his former trainer, the Mitchell Report alleges Roger Clemens took steroids on multiple occasions between 1999 and 2002.

Aww. So cute. It's official: Milo Ventimiglia is so hittin' that!

By that, we mean our girl Hayden Panettiere. While this would normally spark extreme jealousy and bitterness among our staff members (see John Mayer and Minka Kelly), we have no problem with Milo. So he's kind of our man!

Hi From Hayden

For a long time, Hayden Panettiere, 18, and Milo Ventimiglia, 30, have been doing their best to deny any co-star lovin' between them. But it looks like their cover has finally been blown and the Heroes stars have gone public.

The twosome was spotted going on a shopping excursion, then later at the movies, where they took in Atonement, in L.A. Nothing says dating like making out in the theater while Keira Knightley nude appears on screen.

Here's Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere (combined age 48) ...

Can't get enough of Hayden and Milo? Heck, how could you possibly?

You can't deny that these two make an awfully sweet couple, right?

Dr. Phil says Lynne Spears called and asked him to intervene before Britney Spears was released from L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Saturday.

"I want to set the record straight. I went to see Britney Spears at the request of her family. I talked to Lynne, [father] Jamie Spears and [brother] Brian Spears because they were frustrated that she wasn't going to be held for a longer time," Dr. Phraud said on CBS' The Early Show this morning.

So, just so we understand this: Britney Spears' mother - despite her daughter being treated at a world-class hospital - decides to call Dr. f*%king Phil!?

Sad, but true. Dr. Phil â€" who will devote a show to the troubled singer this week â€" says he got looped in after Britney was rushed to the hospital.

"Thursday night, the phone rang, it was Lynne. Clearly she was very upset, as any parent would be," he said. "I was first contacted by her family a year ago and had maintained a running dialogue for the last year or so."

While Lynne Spears continues her relentless, decade-long effort to cash in on her daughter at every turn, Britney's father has been falling apart at the seams.

He and his eldest daughter have had a rocky relationship, but with ex-wife Lynne and daughter Jamie-Lynn Spears already traveling back to Louisiana, he was the sole family member present for Britney's mental evaluation.

After keeping close watch of his daughter at Cedars-Sinai hospital, Jamie Spears broke down in tears shortly after her discharge Saturday morning.

"Jamie was really upset," a source says, "He was in tears. When he got to the house and realized the situation there, it broke him down."

Jamie Spears, who supported Dr. Phil's visit, "thought he understood what was going on. He doesn't know what to do. Everyone is trying to figure out the best thing to do, but who knows what that is now."

Some people just beg for nine-figure lawsuits.

New assertions that Tom Cruise has risen to the second-in-command of the Church of Scientology and that some believe Suri Cruise is the product of a sperm donation from Scientology's late founder L. Ron Hubbard are among the bizarre claims author Andrew Morton makes in "Tom Cruise, An Unauthorized Biography."

Katie Holmes, Suri Cruise, Dolls

The book, set for publication in the U.S. on January 15, also claims Tom Cruise's next mission is to recruit David and Victoria Beckham into the church, and that the church threatened to blackmail Nicole Kidman by revealing graphic details of her sex life with Cruise if she spoke out about Scientology after their divorce.

According to the UK's Daily Mail, Morton says Cruise's staff is all scientologists vetted and hired by the church, and Scientology leader David Miscavige ordered staff to plant a field of wildflowers at a Scientology base after Cruise confided in him his fantasy to run through a field of flowers with Katie Holmes.

The new book also alleges that Scientology officials exert enormous influence over Tom Cruise's personal relationships and career decisions, and says that although it is not officially stated anywhere, Cruise is the de-facto second-in-command of the entire Church of Scientology, its #2 behind Miscavige.

But the most shocking claim in the book, according to the Daily Mail, is Morton's preposterous account of how little Suri Cruise, 20 months, was conceived.

Morton compares Suri Cruise's conception to the horror film Rosemary's Baby and claims that members of a "fanatical" sect of Scientologists known as "Sea Org." believe Katie Holmes was impregnated not by Cruise, but with a sperm donation from dead Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

Tom Cruise's longtime attorney, the Hollywood power lawyer Bert Fields, has vehemently denied the book's claims, calling it a "pack of lies."

"It's a boring, poorly researched book by a man who never talked to anyone involved in Tom Cruise's life or anyone close to him," Fields said.

Morton is best known for his 1992 expose about Princess Diana. His bio of Cruise is not being published in the United Kingdom, interestingly, due in part to the U.K.'s libel laws, which are considered stricter than U.S. laws.

Nick Zano is apparently out of the picture.

While Tom Brady and Tony Romo prepare for NFL playoff games, a bored Matt Leinart apparently passes his time partying in Las Vegas.

Both of these revelations and many others stemmed from Saturday night in Sin City, where Kristin Cavallari celebrated her 21st birthday.

The former Laguna Beach star wouldn't divulge whether she will be joining MTV's The Hills, only saying that "it's a great show."

But the SoCal cutie certainly partied like The Hills cast does as she got down to Soulja Boy on the dance floor and hung with friends.

"My first official drink was Grey Goose and soda," she said. "It's really exciting. I can go to the clubs and not worry about anything."

Kristin Cavallari was joined by fellow Laguna Beach alumna and good friend Alex Murrel, spent the night chatting up Matt Leinart, the USC grad and current Arizona Cardinals quarterback who's also a reputed former flame of hers.

Following her dinner at Company American Bistro, Kristin Cavallari's highlight was the sparkling birthday cake that was brought out for her.

Saturday night capped the weekend-long celebration for the infamous and sexy high school rival of Lauren Conrad. As soon as the clocks struck midnight on Saturday, a newly single Cavallari - who recently broke up with longtime beau Nick Zano - headed to Pure Nightclub to take in the sights.

As for her love life? Kristin Cavallari wouldn't reveal details on the boy(s) she's seeing, only saying that she is dating "and having fun."

The smarmy Spencer Pratt gives his girlfriend Heidi Montag's new lips a nice test drive at Las Vegas' Jet Nightclub on Friday evening.

The quasi-celebrities served as the club's Sin City "hosts" for the night, collecting fat paychecks and making out for cameras at every turn.

Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt Kiss

The Hollywood Gossip staff, meanwhile, vomited in its collective mouth upon seeing this nauseating photo of The Hills stars sucking (face).

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: So in love... with publicity.

Britney Spears has done the impossible since her discharge early Saturday morning from Cedars-Sinai hospital. No, she didn't shoot Sean Preston and Jayden James with her Beretta, or offer K-Fed $100 million to keep the boys.

Britney somehow slipped out of her Beverly Hills home undetected despite the horde of celebrity news reporters await her every move outside.

Beaming Brit

With her? Adnan Ghalib, of course.

The pop star, accompanied by her Finalpixx photographer and possible lover, was spotted in Palm Desert as she popped into the Daily Grill around 10 a.m. Sunday.

"She seemed in a really good mood, laughing with the guy she was with," says the restaurant's manager of Spears and Adnan Ghalib.

Adnan Ghalib escorts Britney Spears to a prior hotel rendezvous.

At the restaurant, Britney Spears shielded herself behind large, dark sunglasses and "had a champagne mimosa to drink," he said.

The walking train wreck stayed at the restaurant with her man for about an hour, as Vegas Confidential's Norm Clarke first reported.

Spears, 26, had been "keeping company" with Adnan Ghalib, 35, before her recent meltdown. They have apparently become good "friends" lately.

The two checked into two hotels over the past couple of weeks, but he was not on hand Friday and did not comment on her stint at Cedars-Sinai.

Wonder what that jackass Dr. Shill Dr. Phil will say about this one.

UPDATE: Celebrity photo agency X17online.com says the couple is currently holed up together at Shutters Hotel in Santa Monica, California.

And, in a bizarre case of the pot calling the kettle brown black, Spears' pal Sam Lutfi tells X17 that "he is worried about Adnan's influence over Britney" and he "firmly believes Adnan Ghalib has ulterior financial motives."

Give it a rest, Sam Lutfi. We all know you're just jealous of Adnan, man.

This is bad celebrity gossip.

There's no other way to put this: A story by The News of the World (U.K.) gives the entire Hollywood gossip industry a bad name.

But it's a hilarious read.

When Britney went bonkers last Thursday night and early Friday morning, theories were flying far and wide as to what went down at her place.

Locking herself in a room with a craying Jayden James? Having Alli Sims break down the door and get her out. Who the heck knows what really happened!? We don't. Neither does the News of the World, and yet they write a remarkably detailed "account" of what supposedly transpired. Excerpts below:

  • Britney took nearly 100 pills in 36 hours leading up to her meltdown. She took 2 bottles of Nyquil, 20 Clenbuterols, 18 herbal uppers, 18 Piriton antihistamines, 12 Vicodins, 10 sleeping pills, 8 antacid pills, 1 bottle of Pepto Bismol, 10 Zantacs, 6 Ritalins and of 2 full bottles of Oxycontin.
  • Kevin Federline was afraid Britney would shoot both their sons dead - with a gun he gave her - a Beretta 92FS Brit keeps by her bed. Britney begged Kevin over the phone to let her keep the boys and offered him $100 million.
  • When one of Kevin's bodyguards tried to take the boys from her, she bit him in the leg. Britney called Jamie Lynn Spears and told her she wasn't going to be the only Spears on the cover of a magazine next week. Britney then proceeded to bash her head into the wall in a fit of rage.
