This just in: Britney Spears doesn't miss being married.

Then again, when she was married, it was to Jason Alexander. Then K-Fed. Just saying.

Circus Leader

When asked by People in New York on Friday how she likes being single, the pop star, who filed for divorce from Kevin Federline on November 7, said:

"It's awesome."

Britney Spears grabbed the spotlight Friday while at the fashion show for Baby Phat by Kimora Lee Simmons and KLS Collection Fall 2007, which was held at the Roseland Ballroom in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Wearing a slinky black dress, Jayden James' MILF posed for photographers upon her arrival, and was escorted to her seat just moments before the show started.

As the models strutted on an elevated stage wearing sexy their outfits, Spears chatted at times with her assistant. No, not Isaac Cohen.

She applauded along with the rest of the crowd when model Alek Wek flaunted a colorful halter dress that dragged on the floor in back but was a mini-dress in front. "Oh my god," said Spears, who showed no aversion to pants on this night.

After the show, Spears said:

"It was amazing."

She's always good for a memorable quote, that Briney. Kimora Lee Simmons (no relation to Bill Simmons), who was backstage after the show, said of Spears: "Sometimes she gets a hard rap...[But] she is a very talented girl."

Just not when it comes to giving interviews.

ESPN's Bill Simmons, a.k.a. The Sports Guy, is famous for his long-winded, hilarious sports columns, being married to The Sports Gal, and for watching enough television to rot the brains of even the pop culture aficionados at T.H. Gossip.

That said, it's only appropriate that when asked to describe his feelings on Miami, site of tonight's Super Bowl XLI, Simmons turned to a young reality TV star we know and sort of love. Here's what Bill writes...

LC: Lauren Conrad Style

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All I know is this: My assignment for this week was to come to Miami and tell you, the home reader, what it's like to have a Super Bowl here. Right now, we're working on a solid A-plus. The grade could change, but that's what we're looking at right now.

Since I can't sum up my feelings on South Beach in a single sentence, let's hand it over to the great Brody Jenner, who's making a noble attempt on The Hills right now to break the reality-TV record for "most cheesy compliments ever given to a girl while trying to get into her pants."

Two things you need to know about Brody:

  1. He's Bruce Jenner's son
  2. He's already been on two reality shows.

Now he's pursuing the star of The Hills - America's sweetheart, Lauren Conrad - who's far too stupid to realize that Brody called her only because he knew the cameras had just started rolling for Season 2.

You would think she'd catch on after Jason Wahler (her fellow Laguna Beach grad, and last season's nose-itching boyfriend on The Hills) pulled the same stunt on her and she was too dumb to see that one, either.

She's easy prey for a player like Brody, who, since his arrival on The Hills, has been laying lines on her like "you have the most beautiful eyes I have EVER seen."

We're about three more episodes away from having a threesome with him and a 6-foot bottle of Rohypnol. I don't see this ending well.

What does this have to do about anything? Well, in this week's episode, Brody finally lured LC back to his apartment and gave her his greatest line yet:

"There's nowhere I'd rather be than right here with you."

I don't feel that strongly about South Beach, but give me a few more days. We might get there.

Embattled Miss USA Tara Conner, fresh out of rehab, is making the rounds on the talk show circuit in an attempt to rehabilitate her (oversexed, alcoholic) image.

Matt Lauer, host of NBC's Today Show and universally recognized sexy beast, recently became one of the prime stops on Tara's post-rehab tour.

Matt Lauer: King of Cool

Neither was into it.

As you can see, Lauer just wants bigger ratings. What is a sober, regretful Tara Conner going to do for him? Now she's just another sweetheart from the South. He'd be better off bringing back Tom Cruise for another debate on the merits of psychiatry.

As for Miss Coke Head USA, her mind is clearly elsewhere as well. Like us, she can't get those pictures of fellow disgraced beauty queen Katie Rees out of her head. We know Tara's into girl on girl action, but keep it together, girl! You're on TV!

Yeah. How these two even carried on a conversation is beyond us. But there's little doubt that Chelsea Cooley and Tamiko Nash were fuming when they watched it.

Break out the champagne glasses. Lauren Conrad is officially 21!

That means she can put away that fake ID and actually drink legally at Hyde and the other clubs she goes to on a nightly basis. And thank God for that.

How Does My Butt Look?

In typical fashion, Lauren celebrated her 21st birthday in style last night with her buddies (and co-stars on The Hills) at an L.A. hotspot.

Below, Lauren is pictured with BFF Heidi Montag (top, with LC, and bottom left) along with Heidi's BFF Audrina Patridge, who's been getting on our nerves of late. Are you interested in Spencer or not? What's with the drama every time you see Heidi at the club? Luckily, there was no in-fighting among the gang at last night's special occasion.

Stunningly, Kristin Cavallari was not invited. No word on whether that Casanova Brody Jenner was able to make it, or if he was too busy boinking Lindsay Lohan.

Are the parents of Jayden James Federline officially over?

Maybe not. Britney Spears has been making late-night phone calls to K-Fed in hope of a reconciliation, according to several of Kevin's close peeps.

Britney Spears' New Body!

The friends of Kevin, who understandably requested anonymity, told TMZ that Britney's relationship with Isaac Cohen is a ruse to make Kevin jealous.

But other sources - and surely ones with more brain cells - say Britney is so over Kevin Federline. They say that Britney and Fedex have very little contact, and when they do communicate, it's about their two kids.

The two will continue to share custody of their two young sons this month, following the terms of a January custody agreement, Federline's attorney confirmed Thursday.

The temporary agreement has been extended through February, according to publicist Michael Sands, speaking on behalf of K-Fed's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Per the terms of that agreement, good ol' Kev will continue to be allowed to visit Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline at Spears' home from noon to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

By the way, according to the same sources, recent reports that Britney will ante up a $25 million settlement to K-Fed to end their marriage are ridiculous.

One connected source says the $25 million figure is grossly inflated. About 25 times inflated.

In other words, the bad news is that FedEx will probably become a millionaire.

But the good news is that he won't be a multi-millionaire... at least not from Britney. He's doing well for himself with these fast food gigs though.

Okay, so only two out of five of the princes below are actual royalty, while two of them were spawned by the weirdest man on planet Earth and one once changed his name to an unprouncable symbol. That won't stop The Hollywood Gossip from this exclusive photo comparison. We know who Kate Middleton would pick, but who's your favorite Prince?

TOP ROW: That's Michael Jackson's son, Prince Michael II (really), and those handsome heirs to the British throne, Prince William and Prince Harry.

BOTTOM ROW: That's rocker Prince (born Prince Rogers Nelson), who's gearing up for the Super Bowl halftime show Sunday, and Michael Jackson's other son, Prince Michael I (really).

Okay, so Diddy likes to check out Jessica Biel. While he could learn a thing or two about social tact, it's hard not to be enamored with that booty. And a little ogling never hurt anything.

As for Diddy partying (and possibly sleeping with) Sienna Miller, there's probably not a lot to that rumor. Seriously, who isn't rumored to be hitting that these days? Heck, even the nerdy guy who runs The Hollywood Gossip server has probably been linked romantically to the hard-partying, often nude actress by now.

Diddy, Yo

By and large, Mr. Sean Combs seems to have his priorities in line - seeing as he's a rap star and entertainment mogul, that's no small feat. Check out these cute pics of Diddy, longtime girlfriend Kim Porter, and their adorable newborn twin daughters, D'Lila and Jessie.

Wow. Those are some cute kids. Eat your heart out, Suri Cruise.

Bob Saget can't believe it. At the DVD Release Party for "Farce of the Penguins," he was confronted by his longtime TV daughter. Both of them.

Having blocked out his years on the G-rated series Full House, the surprisingly foul-mouthed comic was stunned to learn that the adorable Michelle Tanner was actually played by two girls - identical twins Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen - and that neither has enjoyed a good meal since they were on the program. Nor do they own mirrors...

We're with you, Bob. We're with you. Seeing the Olsen Twins always delivers a shock to our systems as well. Saget also was overheard wondering aloud why the hell Stavros Niarchos would hit that, and asking where Candace Cameron was.

Ready for this one? Ever the religious flip-flopper, Britney Spears has apparently traded in crucifixes and red strings for the Star of David. Is the Hebrew symbol in homage to her new man, Jewish model-actor Isaac Cohen?

Britney Spears was raised Southern Baptist and wore Christian crosses on a regular basis before Madonna turned her on to Kabbalah - and turned T.H. Gossip on by sticking her tongue down Britney's throat - in 2003.

Spears and Trawick Pic

The pop singer began studying the mystical offshoot of Judaism and started wearing the religion's famed red string bracelet designed to ward off the "evil eye." Then, in May 2006, the soon-to-be-ex Mrs. Kevin Federline announced that she was giving up Kabbalah, saying "my baby is my religion."

Yeah. Such a strong religion, in fact, that until this past week, Britney was seldom (if ever) seen with newborn baby Jayden James Federline.

But she appeared to have found a new faith Monday night when she showed off her new Star of David. When Britney Spears and Isaac Cohen were on their way home from the Chateau Marmont, photographers captured the star on her necklace. See below:

Has Britney gone Jewtastic? Does anyone care? We'll keep you posted.
