The only thing happy these days about the troubled Britney Spears would be the Happy Meals she's picking up from McDonalds (below, left).

But will the walking train wreck try to right her own quickly-sinking ship by rekindling her love for an old flame?

Sources say Britney has been trying to phone her pre-FedEx ex, who goes by the name of Justin Timberlake. But he ain't callin' back.

Justin is reportedly not high on the idea of running it back with Britney. You know who else isn't? Cameron Diaz. When she got wind of the calls, she didn't like it one bit - and has even gone so far as to try to get through to Britney's reps to ask her to stop calling JT.

Too bad Brit's manager, Larry Rudolph, doesn't do anything.

One can't blame Cameron for being a little put out, but you don't see her phoning Jessica Biel now, do you? Or maybe you do. We don't want to jump to conclusions here.

Over the weekend, the paparazzi caught Britney engaged in a few of her favorite pastimes. No, not barfing on Isaac Cohen - carrying several small objects and killing herself slowly but surely with the substances she ingests.

The mother of two with the enormous breasts and trouble staying sober was seen going into a recording studio with Marlboro lights, Red Bull and McDonald's grub - a combination that will be known heretofore as the WTBOC (white trash breakfast of champions).

Later, she was spotted carrying some other small items - namely her baby sons Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline! Check out the Jayden James pictures we were able to find! They're not grainy at all!

Former *NSync singer Lance Bass confirms that he and Reichen Lehmkuhl have officially called it quits. For real. Again. Once and for all.

"We broke up last week," Bass told People in an interview. "But we're really good friends. Nothing bad at all â€" nothing bad at all to say."

The couple had announced in early December that they were splitting though trying to work things out in their budding relationship.

Reichen Lehmkuhl, the handsome model-actor-Amazing Race winner, took issue with tabloid speculation that he was cheating on Lance.

"We remain the best of friends. Please respect our privacy as we try to work things out during this difficult time," they said in a joint statement in December.

The former boy band mate of Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone and two other dudes first revealed his relationship with Lehmkuhl when he declared in July that he is a gay man.

"I'm more liberated and happy than I've been my whole life," Bass said at the time. "I'm just happy."

Chances are, Perez Hilton won't feel the same way once Lehmkuhl tracks him down and beats the living crap out of him - an event we are excited for.

Jessica Simpson and her new loser man continued to share quality time together Friday at his concert at the University of Miami.

Simpson was dancing to John Mayer's entire set and 20-minute encore, sources tell People, apparently enjoying his music for unknown reasons.

"She was rocking out the whole time," says one fellow concert goer. "She only seemed to know the words to his older songs though, because she sang along to 'Your Body is a Wonderland' and his older hits."

Mayer probably dedicated that one to Jessica. After all, it's the only thing she has going for her, if you know what we're saying. We're saying she's a moron with no acting or singing talent - which apparently runs in the family.

With a camera in hand, Simpson â€" who took in the show from the sound and lighting area alongside stylist Ken Paves, Billy Joel and his wife, Katie Lee Joel â€" snapped photos of herself and Paves, Mayer and the crowd.

"She was dancing like she was a real fan, and a lot of the crowd had their eyes on her the whole time," says the observer, who did not say that Jessica was wasted.

Tara Conner was reportedly there, but seemed distracted trying to flag down a beer vendor. Just kidding. There are no beer vendors at that venue.

Simpson and Mayer are longtime friends who've been linked off and on since the summer, when he started dating her just for the sex sparks started flying between the two.

They spent a lot of time heating up Miami last week, working out and dining together last Monday, then spending Tuesday heading toward his concert in Jacksonville.

This Monday, after an Orlando gig on Saturday, Mayer is due to perform once again in Pensacola. He'll also be doing a concert there. Har har. The Hollywood Gossip will have a full report and vomit in its collective mouth again soon.

Here's what we've all been waiting to see!

Another Jayden James Federline picture!

Usual Britney

Well, sort of. They're a tad grainy.

But we take our hats off to x17online.com just the same. These celebrity gossip gods captured Britney Spears at a Hollywood studio, choreographing her team of dancers and getting into the swing of things herself.

Best of all, x17 spotted Brit with her two little tykes along with her, and if you look closely, you can see little Jayden James with the assistant in the back. Surprisingly (well, not really) he looks like his older brother, Sean Preston.

Then again, so does just about anyone at that resolution:

Hopefully, more terrific Jayden James pictures like this are still to come.

Well, not exactly. Although he is in this picture, we think, Jayden James Federline appears to be stuffed into a crate. Now that's great parenting.

Britney Spears and her brood are seen here getting off a private jet at Van Nuys airport yesterday, upon returning from her aunt's funeral, which Brit attended in her native Louisiana. No Isaac Cohen though. Here's the pic:

Spears quickly loaded up little Jayden James and his older brother Sean Preston Federline and headed straight to a rehearsal studio in Burbank. While this is not quite the manner in which we envisioned the first Jayden James pictures, it'll have to do for now.

Just hope the poor thing can breathe in there. Gotta poke holes in the box, B.

It is time, once again, for celebrity look-alikes at The Hollywood Gossip. Yesterday we brought you the fabulous Kristin Cavallari and a couple of other young blondes she resembles. Today, it's time for another Laguna Beach alum to be featured in all his greasiness.

Behold, Irish actor and ladykiller Colin Farrell and Reality TV "star" Jason Wahler - who while first becoming known to us on Laguna Beach, later resurfaced on The Hills, the Laguna spin-off featuring Lauren Conrad. She dumped his ass eventually.

Douchenozzle

Funny thing is, these two is that they may have more than looks and a penchant for getting arrested in common. TMZ reports that Wahler rolled to Hyde last night. Who else was there? Playboy centerfold Nicole Narain - co-star of the Colin Farrell sex tape (not to be confused with the woman allegedly stalking him)!

Okay, so that's a bit of a stretch. But come on. Jason Wahler got into Hyde! That's funny in and of itself. Speaking of sex tapes, wonder what Kim Kardashian is up to right now.

Rolling Stone recently held a contest for wannabe journalists where they offered contestants the chance to ask 10 questions to their favorite musician. Somehow, people picked John Mayer to answer said questions.

In responding to inquiries from the latest "I'm from Rolling Stone" contest winner, 22-year-old Andrew Miller, the dude who loves his porn and wears bear costumes and is hanging out with Jessica Simpson for only two reasons (no matter what he tells you) didn't say much of anything interesting.

John, Jen

In fact, we have no idea why we're even writing about it. At The Hollywood Gossip, it's been a slow day (not that you couldn't figure that out strictly from the Maui Fever article). Anyway, here are a few excerpts from the interview:

Q: So, now the squeaky clean guy who once penned the lyric "bubble-gum tongue" is a weed enthusiast?

John Mayer: Not anymore. How can I explain this succinctly? Sometimes you have to experiment with an updated design for yourself before you realize the original design never stopped working for you. Rolling Stone is like your older brother's cool friend, and you'll be surprised what you'll do to get Keith with the Camaro to like you.

Q: Ever purchase a Jessica Simpson album?

John Mayer: I listen to most new music released every week.

Q: You turn 30 in October. What will be the worst part about seeing your 20's go away?

John Mayer: There are lots of very invasive tests that doctors like to administer to men in their thirties. These tests usually result in a ride home with the radio off and very little blinking.

THG NOTE: Is there actually someone out there who cares what John Mayer thinks about aging? Or thinks that John Mayer is the slightest bit funny? Why wouldn't you ask him something interesting, like what Jennifer Love Hewitt's favorite position is? Rolling Stone - all respect gone.

Actually, we do have to give Mayer a little credit for his proposed solution to the ongoing Grey's Anatomy feud. But it pains us to do so.

After reportedly spending a day working in a dance studio, Britney Spears stopped in to a convenience store in Studio City, Calif., Thursday for an energy boost (below, left). 

The Circus

Hopefully, that "boost" was just Red Bull, but didn't include any vodka. Otherwise, our girl Britney could be in for another random display of exhibitionism (leading to some tremendous nude pictures), or another sudden bout of "tiredness" akin to her New Year's debacle.

Recently, the singer has been more play than business - as we're sure you know. So much so that she's come under fire from Kevin Federline (really) for not being around their kids, Sean Preston and Jayden James, enough.

Instead, she's been hitting the club scene with new guy Isaac Cohen (above, right) or whom she recently bought some sexy lingerie. Despite rumors that they broke up, the couple appears to be going strong.

Such when you thought the younger, more robotic half of TomKat was getting ready to pull the most blatant "I'm a slut looking for attention" move in the book, she goes and throws the paparazzi for a loop!

Wearing a full length dress, not a miniskirt, she somehow still managed to nearly show us everything underneath while stepping out of the car in this pic, but there was no crotch shot to be seen, no channeling of her inner Britney Spears to be displayed.

Feeble

There wasn't even a thong. Guess not every celebrity thinks they have to be a commando queen in order to stay in the spotlight. Or make a sex tape featuring themselves.

As you can see, Katie Holmes is sporting some seriously supportive, full-coverage underwear in this pic. So weak. She can do better than this. Come on girl. Can't you at least take a cue from Victoria Beckham and show off a little skin?

Then again, we're not sure we want to see that alien-producing Asian baby factory either. Much as we love Suri Cruise, it's just kind of lost its appeal at this point.

Stop the presses. And lock your doors.

Michael J. Walks

Michael Jackson is back in the United States of America, and no one seems to know exactly where. Perhaps even Michael himself.

Yes, the one-time King of Pop could be right around the corner from you. But most likely he's not. You would probably have noticed the hordes of people shrieking in abject terror by now.

You never know, though, and Jackson refused to reveal his whereabouts in a call with the Associated Press yesterday, except to say that he's back in the U.S. Come on, America. Pick it up. Can't we keep people like Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith out after they leave voluntarily?

For security reasons, said Wacko Jacko's representative, he wouldn't say where in the land of the free he is. But we're guessing it's probably not his freak-show ranch.

Recently, the regularly indicted, never convicted child molester has been spotted in Georgia (for James Brown's funeral) Las Vegas (to spend lots of money he thinks he has) and other locations. In March, Jackson is going to Japan, where humans will for some reason pay $3,300 apiece just to shake his hand.

Do they not know where that diseased, gloved hand has been? At the very least, it's been all over his crazy ex-wife - and heaven only knows where else.

Even more bizarrely, during the call, a reporter was allowed only one question to Jackson, which was, "How are you?"

Jackson's response: "I'm fine, thank you."

Wow. What a riveting exchange. Let's give this journalist a Pulitzer. While we're at it, let's give Brooke Hogan a Grammy and annoint Britney Spears mother of the year.
