Who is this mysterious, shaggy teen who got Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant?

A good question, but apparently he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. Condoms aren't that difficult to figure out. But anyway, we'll move on now.

Jamie Lynn and Britney Spears

There is very little known about father-to-be Casey Aldridge except for the fact that he has been Jamie Lynn Spears' boyfriend for a over a year now.

Casey Aldridge has blonde hair and stands six feet two inches. His father, Mark, works for a local paper mill in Cleveland, Tenn. His mother, Joyce Aldridge, confirmed the pregnancy to TMZ. Casey met Jamie Lynn Spears at church.

Casey Aldridge and Jamie Lynn Spears: So happy together.

Casey should probably get himself a good lawyer (we hear Mark Vincent Kaplan is awesome), as he is 18 or 19 years old (we've read both) and Jamie Lynn is 16.

We've daydreamed enough about Hayden Panettiere and done enough research to know that's potentially a pretty big legal problem Casey has on his hands.

Lynne Spears' book about raising her famous daughters Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears has been put on hold, the publisher confirmed to People.

"The book is delayed indefinitely. It's delayed, not cancelled," says a spokeswoman for Thomas Nelson, which publishes inspirational books and Bibles.

What on Earth they are doing publishing a book by Lynne Spears is beyond us, as she may be the least inspirational mother of all time. But no matter.

It had been set for a spring 2008 release but was put on hold when news broke that 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant by her boyfriend Casey Aldridge.

A Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

Lynne Spears is such a good parent, she should write a book on it!

Publishers' Weekly described the book as "Lynne Spears' personal story of raising high-profile children while coming from a low-profile Louisiana community."

They use the term "raising" loosely, we assume.

The publisher declined to comment on whether the focus of the book would be altered in light of Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy announcement.

"We are standing behind Lynn at this time and understand that she needs time with her family - we support that," says the spokeswoman.

Again, we're not sure what's harder to believe - that this book was even given consideration by a publisher, or that Lynne Spears may have done a better job with Britney Spears - who at least made it to her early 20s, and was married for like 20 months - than she did with Jamie Lynn Spears.

Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant.

Yeah, Casey Aldridge put a baby in that.

While all Spears family news pales in comparison to this bombshell, Jamie Lynn's train wreck older sister was the subject of a court hearing yesterday.

In latest Britney Spears-Kevin Federline custody proceeding on Tuesday, the judge 86ed the hearing that had previously been scheduled for January 23.

According to TMZ, which was live on the scene, Spears' lawyers wanted to convince the Commish to restore her right to drive a car with her kids.

Britney also wanted more custody rights overall regarding Sean Preston and Jayden James. Now that hearing has been pushed way back to February 19.

Britney Spears' custody hearing and antics are tough to make sense of.

Kevin Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, subpoenaed a celebrity news video of Spears partying at night - on the same day in which Sam Lutfi claimed she was too ill and anxious to show up for her mandatory deposition.

Kaplan wants all of Britney Spears' custody requests postponed until she sits that frequently naked ass down for her deposition, and it looks like that wish was granted. It seems Kaplan has gotten his wish, at least temporarily.

Spears' new deposition is now set for the first week in January. Mark Vincent Kaplan argued that he needed time to review the deposition and check out what Britney says under oath, so the next hearing was moved to February 19.

We know who's leading in the polls (or at least we did, two hours ago when we last checked), but which presidential candidates dominate the celebrity gossip world? Who would be the next president if online searches were votes?

In a race that mirrors recent Iowa and New Hampshire polling data, Barack Obama has narrowly edged out fellow Democratic senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as the top-searched presidential hopeful of 2007 across the Internets.

Obama's slight victory over Hillary Clinton may be thanks to a relative unknown status at the beginning of the year, as well as his huge support from many females - ranging from hot and nude (Amber Lee Ettinger) to all-powerful (Oprah).

If celebrity and online buzz were votes, Barack Obama would be president!

Ron Paul (R) came from nowhere to claim the #3 spot. While his numbers are about half of Clinton and Obama for the year, he took a web lead in November.

John Edwards (D) didn't lag too far behind at #4, while Fred Thompson's late entry, TV credentials and spouse helped his online attention surge above his fellow GOPers Mitt Romney (R), Rudy Giuliani (R) and John McCain at #5.

Expect the candidates' celebrity gossip buzz to change in 2008 - as searches already have for Mike Huckabee (R), thanks in part to a new sidekick.

The Top Searched Presidential Candidates in 2007:

  1. Barack Obama (D)
  2. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D)
  3. Ron Paul (R)
  4. John Edwards (D)
  5. Fred Thompson (R)
  6. Mitt Romney (R)
  7. John McCain (R)
  8. Rudy Giuliani (R)

Lauren Conrad poses with U.S. Marines at the trendy club Crobar in Chicago on Friday after hosting the Dreams for Kids Foundation's "Holiday for Hope" fund raiser, a worldwide organization dedicated to improving the lives of children.

Lauren Conrad poses with our nation's finest. We're not entirely clear why, but we sure love LC. And really respect the job our Marines do ensuring our freedom.

The lovely star of The Hills was on hand to help raise money for the Dreams for Kids Foundation's holiday gift collection. It's always nice to see celebrities using their star power to give back to communities and groups in need however they can.

What charities do you support, huh, Kristin Cavallari? Step off.

Some stars, you wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole (Toastee Toof). Others, you wish you could touch in every conceivable way (Hayden Panettiere).

Somewhere in the middle are those who you really can't determine if they're hot or not. In our opinion, Fergie is one of those stars.

Which isn't to say Josh Duhamel agrees. The actor has been dating Fergie since 2004, and while the pair has no plans to get engaged anytime soon, Fergie can't say enough about how happy the Las Vegas star makes her.

"We're practically married, anyway," she tells Blender in its new issue. "I'm madly in love with him. He understands how to treat a woman and give me respect."

Fergie, the music magazine's 2007 Woman of the Year, did have a big 2007, with her debut solo album, The Dutchess, among the top-selling records of the last 12 months. But she's also suffered her share of indignities.

For instance, there was that time in which Fergie wet herself onstage - a crazy mishap captured in a photo that was spread quickly across the Internet.

"I was late, so I didn't go to the restroom before I went onstage," Fergie, 32, explains. "It was horrible. But, whatever. It happened."

Fergie takes the same attitude with her past drug abuse.

"There's one or two things the public knows about every famous person that you wish they didn't," Fergie said. "With me, everyone knows that I wet my pants onstage and had a crystal meth addiction. That sucks. But you have to laugh."

Britney Spears' 16-year-old sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, is pregnant. According to many celebrity news sources, the father is some dude named Casey Aldridge.

Reps for Jamie Lynn Spears, star of the recently canned Nickelodeon show Zoey 101, were not available for comment. But Nickelodeon said in a statement:

"We respect Jamie Lynn Spears' decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation. We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn's well being."

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears: Pregnant at 16. Seriously.

Jamie Lynn Spears has been recently dating - and apparently doing, without using protection - 19-year-old Mississippi native Casey Aldridge. She has been spending most of her time with her mom, Lynne Spears, in their hometown of Kentwood, La.

Britney Spears, who is twice divorced and who was pregnant with Sean Preston at 23 and Jayden James at 24, is a terrific role model residing in Los Angeles.

Wow. Just wow. Who would have guessed the National Enquirer was so prescient when it made up this same story and proclaimed Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant back in July!

Guess the apple really doesn't fall far from the trashy, fertile tree.

Amy Winehouse has been arrested and taken into custody in connection with an alleged plan to derail a criminal case against her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.

"A 24-year-old woman has been arrested by appointment at an East London police station," a police spokeswoman said, without naming Amy Winehouse.

"[The woman] is currently in custody. The arrest was in connection with an investigation into perverting the course of justice."

Amy Winehouse's U.S. representative confirmed the singer's arrest, saying: "I can confirm that she did go in voluntarily to be interviewed and was placed under arrest, as is common practice in the U.K., before being questioned."

The arrest of Amy Winehouse relates to a witness-tampering charge against husband Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, who's accused of assaulting a barman in June.

He is currently in jail awaiting trial. As is British custom, police do not publicly name people who are arrested - only if they are later charged with a crime.

Winehouse was forced to give fingerprints and a saliva swab to police, as "any person arrested is required to give both DNA and fingerprints," the police said.

Another source denied a recent News of the World report that Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil have a suicide pact if they both are put behind bars.

Guess junkies birds of a strung-out feather really do OD flock together.

Now that her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is in jail, Amy Winehouse seems to be spending more time with Pete Doherty - and her father is not happy.

In fact, seeing the often-arrested Babyshambles singer out with his daughter made dad Mitch Winehouse go berzerk, he admitted to Grazia magazine.

"I do worry about people like Pete Doherty. He's a scumbag," a distraught Mitch Winehouse said. "I flipped when I saw him sitting with Amy backstage at her Brixton gig. I went crazy. My wife thought I was going to have a heart attack."

Some sources reported that Pete Doherty was present when Amy Winehouse overdosed on drugs in August. Regardless, they are hanging out a lot nowadays.

The diminutive jazz-pop diva, 24, has struggled mightily since her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was arrested for alleged witness tampering in November.

She also canceled all 2007 shows, and mother Janis Winehouse wrote an open letter published by the media, begging Amy to come home and get clean.

"I know the real problem here is that she's depressed about [Blake Fielder-Civil] being in prison," Mitch Winehouse said. "I wasn't in favor of the marriage, but they are married and I will support them. And he's shown while he's been in prison a level of maturity that he didn't have before."

While admitting to the magazine that Amy is "not very well," Mitch Winehouse said he can't force his daughter - who was recently nominated for six Grammy Awards for her smash hit album, Back to Black - into rehab.

"Believe me, my first instinct is to get hold of her, pick her up and take her back to my house and lock her away," he said. "But I've spoken to the finest drug counselors in the world, and they've said that is exactly the wrong thing to do."
