It's like Old Navy tried to round up stars from all of The Hollywood Gossip's favorite TV shows and get them into the same party. Well, minus The Hills.

Hey, bobody's perfect. The casts of Heroes, Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill were all well represented Wednesday during a party for Old Navy's new line at Eyebeam Atelier in New York City. Check out these cute photos ...

Chace Crawford and a bunch of cuties from various hit shows. Nice.

Before being rushed to the hospital late Wednesday night, Britney Spears had a last meal (of sorts) at Jerry's Deli in Studio City, Calif.

With her was celebrity photographer and boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib. He looks deep in thought. What could Adnan be pondering? Some possibilities ...

  • The state of humanity, our place in the universe
  • Whether he left the burner on at home this morning
  • How the U.S. will lessen its dependence on foreign oil

In any case, here are Britney and Adnan Ghalib, lost in thought ...

Contemplating Life

Adnan Ghalib and Britney Spears ponder life outside Jerry's Deli.

Early this morning, Britney Spears was admitted to UCLA Medical Center and placed on psychiatric hold. She will remain there for at least three days.

More updates to come soon on the saga that is the life of Britney, and the battle over control of the singer's important medical decisions...

Katherine Heigl has had an outstanding year - and it's been recognized as she was named the most desirable woman of the year by Askmen.com.

A former model, the 29-year-old film and TV actress is very beautiful, outspoken, humorous, talented... we could go on. But we know you don't care.

Just look at the Katherine Heigl photo below and enjoy...

Katherine Heigl, Family

Do you think Katherine Heigl is the world's most desirable woman?

Her role on Grey's Anatomy garnered her an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She also starred in the box-office hits Knocked Up and 27 Dresses, and married singer-songwriter Josh Kelley. Far from shabby.

Desire more. There's plenty of Katherine Heigl pics where this came from.

The Super Bowl is renowned for its memorable commercials, as well as halftime music entertainment and maybe even a little pigskin action.

Here's one of the ads you'll see Super Bowl Sunday, entitled "Magnetic Attraction." It's for Pepsi Stuff, and features Justin Timberlake.

Biel and Timberlake

Pretty funny. Watch for cameos by Andy Samberg and Tony Romo!

Maybe not quite as humorous as Kevin Federline's Super Bowl ad from a year ago, but it's up there. We can't wait to see the rest of this year's commercials.

Speaking of Justin Timberlake, the singer, producer and actor turns 27 today. Happy birthday to one of The Hollywood Gossip's favorite entertainers!

A L.A. County Superior Court judge has signed a "5150," meaning Britney Spears is on a three-day psychiatric hold at the UCLA Medical Center.

There is a "good possibility" it will be extended to 14 days.

There have been several concurrent attempts to get Britney on a 5150. Spears' own lawyers, Anne Kiley and Tara Scott, secured a new psychiatrist for her late last week - and he's the one who triggered the 5150 last night.

At the same time, we're told Britney's mother, father and brother have been "working closely with the LAPD for weeks" to get her psychiatric care.

Contemplative Britney Spears

Meanwhile, a bitter fight is taking place over who is in control as far as making the troubled star's medical decisions.

Insiders say Britney's parents,  Lynne and Jamie Spears, are currently not calling the shots in making medical decisions on behalf of Britney.

Right now, it appears Sam Lutfi is in the driver's seat.

Sources close to the case say that after Britney's stay at Cedars-Sinai January 3, she had her lawyers draft up paperwork making it clear she did not want her parents involved in making any medical decisions on her behalf.

Britney Spears' Daddy

Jamie Spears (above) reportedly went ballistic, screaming and swearing at Sam Lutfi - even pushing him physically - right in front of Britney.

As to what paperwork she signed, if any, that's unclear.

If Britney signed a durable power of attorney, that could give someone power to make medical decisions on her behalf in an emergency.

No such document was reportedly signed, but somehow Britney Spears made it clear she wanted Sam Lutfi - not her folks - to make decisions.

Right now, the doctors at UCLA are working with Osama, not Jamie and Lynne Spears. Lawyers are involved and a judge will have to sort it out.

More to come throughout the day. Follow the jump for more details on how Britney was hospitalized in the early hours of the morning ...

A tape of Heath Ledger allegedly at a drug binge party at a Hollywood hotel has surfaced on the Internet and is causing controversy.

The footage is believed to have been shot two years ago at L.A. celebrity hangout Chateau Marmont at a January 29, 2006 party following the Screen Actors Guild awards. Ledger had been nominated for Brokeback Mountain.

Heath Ledger appeared at the ceremony alongside girlfriend Michelle Williams, but she did not attend the private party and was reportedly sleeping in a room upstairs with the couple's infant daughter, Matilda.

The apparent Heath Ledger drug tape, which was taken through a window into a hotel room, showed him talking and shows at least one guest sniffing a "cocaine-like" substance off a table with a rolled up bill in his hand.

Heath Ledger's face is noticeably twitching as he says, "I'm gonna get so much sh*t from my girlfriend ... We have a baby three months ago. Matilda, Matilda Rose."

"I shouldn't be here at all."

At another point in the tape, Ledger talks about his marijuana habit, saying he "used to smoke five joints a day for 20 years."

The content of the drug tape is very sensitive given Ledger's tragic death in New York City on January 22, which remains unexplained at this time.

Emerging stories from various media outlets claim the 28-year-old Australian had been battling drug addiction problems and insomnia for years.

Entertainment Tonight
did not end up airing the drug tape on the air, but showed a lengthy promotional clip of it in the eastern half of the U.S.

The celebrity news show later said that it decided not to show the explosive footage out of respect for Heath Ledger's family.

She can always turn to Britney Spears to feel sane by comparison, but Evi Quaid, who is married to Randy Quaid, is pretty frickin' crazy!

According to TMZ, Evi Quaid caused a scene (we mean she went crazy) recently at the offices of the Actor's Equity Association, which had some sort of problem with Randy Quaid - 23 members filed charges against the actor in connection with the rehearsal and production of "Lone Star Love" in Seattle.

Well, here's where it gets good. And by good we mean bad.

  • Evi Quaid Mugshot
  • Randy Quaid Mugshot

Evi Quaid, the wife of Randy Quaid, is pretty... insane.

Evi and Randy Quaid apparently burst into the offices last week, where Evi Quaid started screaming at the (76-year-old) receptionist. She also kicked her repeatedly in the shins with her high-heeled boots - drawing blood.

For the second time this month, police involuntary committed Britney Spears early Thursday morning, hours after celebrity news media outlets reported that her psychiatrist determined she was a danger to herself and others.

At approximately 1 a.m., dozens of LAPD officers along with an ambulance arrived at Spears' home in the Summit Circle community of Beverly Hills.

Brit Brit Spears

Less than 20 minutes later, she was transported to UCLA Medical Center. Britney is being placed on an emergency psychiatric hold, known as a 5150.

Britney Spears, as you recall, had been involuntarily committed January 3 after a mental breakdown at her home and a subsequent three-hour police standoff.

The ambulance was seen pulling out of the side entrance of Britney Spears' gated Summit community at 1:20 a.m. Her mother, Lynne Spears, was seen riding in an SUV as part of the police escort caravan leaving the area.

Her father, Jamie Spears, and her brother, Bryan Spears, arrived at the hospital just minutes after Britney was brought in. Her manager / friend, Sam Lutfi, and possible cousin, Alli Sims, also were seen entering the building.

Much more to come as the story developing ...
