The basic formula for the "money shot" (in paparazzi terms, anyway â€" sorry, Jenna Jameson) is beaches, bikinis and babies. And the little tikes are gaining steam.

Consider the astonishing $4 million People reportedly shelled out for the first exclusive pictures of Shiloh, the pouty newborn of superstar couple Brangelina.

And while no one has secured shots of Suri Cruise, that hasn't stopped celebrity snappers from camping outside TomKat's house in hopes of snagging a shot.

NOTE: T.H. Gossip staff members prefer flying over the Cruise mansion in a helicopter over hiding in their bushes personally.

Regardless of methods, the frenzy surrounding celebrity babies is off the hook these days. You can't escape it. The kids of stars are all over the grocery stores and news stands and Internets (you're welcome)!

"The market is different now. There are so many tabloids and so many photographers that there's no money in just taking a celebrity photo," Frank Rohmer, president of photo agency X17, said in an interview with MSNBC.

Some fetch bigger prices than others, of course. Photographers say there isn't much of a market for some stars' and their children, like Hugh Jackman and son Oscar Maximillian. He's a good actor, sure, but hardly a tabloid draw. We're surprised that there's even a category about him on our site, to be perfectly honest with you.

Numerous sources confirm that the wondrous Britney Spears is set to renew her wedding vows with disgrace white trash loser worthless human being husband Kevin Federline, the former backup dancer and current aspiring rapper she dubiously married in 2004.

The singer and husband will hold a ceremony this fall, shortly after the birth of their second child, rumored to be entering this cruel world on Halloween. Britney was expected to give birth next month, but Federline let it slip during a recent radio interview that his wife is planning to go into labor on Halloween day.

Kevin Federline Peace

Appearing on DJ Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM show, Federline told the American Idol host that his second child with Spears was due "soon," later blurting out "October 31."

When pressed about his future family plans, the fertile Federline told Seacrest that he's totally "gonna slow down for a little while, I promise," yo.

Just as when Spears birthed son Sean Preston last September 14, his cute little sibling will be arriving via caesarian section.

This is convenient, as it makes it easy for mom to plan when she wishes to crank out her offspring, and for K-Fed to blab about it on the radio. In his defense, though, he may have confused the date with that of his many other kids' birthdays.

As for their renewed vows, the couple will invite hundreds of friends and family, as Britney hopes to show the world she is happily married. Good luck with that! In honor of this occasion, we've posed a close-up shot of Britney before she became a perpetually knocked-up, dark-haired train wreck.

Legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen is denying recent reports that he has split with his wife, Patti Scialfa. An article in the New York Post last week suggested that Springsteen had separated from Scialfa, who sings and plays guitar in his famed E Street Band lineup, and who has been married to the Boss for 18 years.

On his official website, the 56-year-old New Jersey native describes the speculation as unfounded and ugly rumors.

Bruce Springsteen All Smiles

"Our commitment to one another remains as strong as the day we were married. We have built a beautiful family we love and want to protect," he said. "Patti and I have been together for 18 years -- the best 18 years of my life."

Springsteen's statement on his site stressed that he is always hesitant to use his website for "anything personal," but he believed the recent rumors shouldn't pass without comment.

The New York Post claimed that Springsteen had been spending time with a widow of the 11 September attacks in New York, and alleged that he and his wife were "separated, but everyone has been sworn to secrecy."

However, other reports on Friday suggested he and Scialfa had been seen shopping for antiques in Red Bank, N.J., and gave a five-minute impromptu concert when they found an old guitar and mandolin.

Scialfa, 53, has recorded two albums of her own in addition to her work with Springsteen's band. The couple have three teenage children and reside in Colts Neck, N.J.

As big fans of the Boss for as long as we can remember, T.H. Gossip is glad to hear Bruce's denial of these rumors that he is going Peter Sarsgaard on us.

Heralding the start of an unusual entrepreneurial relationship, Tom Cruise and his producing partner have joined forces with a new investment partnership that will fund the duo's production endeavors for the next two years.

Tom Cruise Winning

According to the Washington Post, the announcement comes less than a week after Viacom Inc. and its Paramount Pictures unit revealed they had ended negotiations to renew the studio's 14-year deal with the insane actor. Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone fired the nutjob last week, stating bluntly that Cruise had committed "creative suicide."

Paula Wagner, Cruise's colleague and production partner in Cruise/Wagner Productions, quickly countered that C/W was not planning to renew anyway, and planned to seek other options, including a deal with hedge funds to provide about $100 million in financing.

Their new deal is with Daniel Snyder (the inept owner of the Washington Redskins), Dwight Schar (chairman of homebuilder NVR Inc.) and Mark Shapiro (President and CEO of Six Flags). Snyder, Schar and Shapiro have formed an investment partnership, First and Goal LLC.

The newly-founded corporation, which should be called Fourth and 17 LLC, in honor of the Redskins, will invest in C/W, providing the actor and his backers with development and overhead funds under a two-year deal with the option to renew long term.

"Dan Snyder and Mark Shapiro are proven winners. Paula and I look forward to many mutual successes," Cruise.

Once again, Cruise proves he's out to lunch. Proven winners? The Redskins suck! Wow, one winning season since 1999 after signing every free agent imaginable. Congratulations, Daniel Snyder. Apparently producing one winner every six movies is satisfactory for Cruise going forward. Hope he, his disheveled fiancee and fake daughter are happy.

K-Fed is getting ready for his acting debut, but he hasn't forgotten about rapping just yet, With the release of his debut album, Playing with Fire, due to hit stores in October, the deadbeat complete failure multi-talented Kevin Federline is already throwing CD release parties. Here are a few pictures from the most recent one, which we came across:

  • Distraught Britney Spears
  • Kevin Federline Fist Pump

The guy sure loves his Yankees... and wearing his hat cocked to the side like a f*%king retard. Meanwhile, K-Fed's loving and supportive wife, and the mother of one (soon to be two) of his three (soon to be four) kids, Britney Spears, has unloaded her Manhattan condo. She finally sold the dump after it languished on the market for more than two years -- since before her marriage to Federline and the birth of their son, Sean Preston.

The 4,400-square-foot apartment fetched $4 million, $1 million more than the pop princess paid for it four years ago, but $2 million less than her original asking price of $6 million. Still, not a bad return on investment there, Brit. See that, Kevin? That's how people make money. Investing in real estate. Not by trying to rap and looking like a complete jackass.

As recently as last May, the three bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom, four-floor apartment -- which also has a media room, library and terrace -- had been priced at $4.55 million, Spears' real estate broker confirms. Keith Richards and hip hop mogul Russell Simmons are both prior owners. Sounds like the buyers got a bargain. Sort of.

Chris Toland of the Corcoran Group, who represented the buyers, said that his clients, whom he would not name, are from Los Angeles and are quote-unquote "not celebrities."

TRANSLATION: They're freaking losers!

Tom Cruise was bashed (newsworthy, we know) last week in Australia, where he was named winner of the "Celebrity Ernie Award" for a supposedly sexist comment that award organizers claim he made. Only he didn't.

The comment in question, which was allegedly made when fiancée Katie Holmes was pregnant with their possibly-fake daughter, Suri Cruise (now between three and four months old if she is in fact alive):

"I've got Katie tucked away so no one will get to us until my child is born," Cruise said (no, he didn't).

The quote was named "worst derogatory public statement" by nearly 400 of Australia's most powerful women who gathered in the New South Wales state parliament last week. But according to Cruise's rep, the actor, who was in the news last week after being fired by Paramount, did not utter those words or make any such remarks to that effect.

"The comments that they have attributed to him are completely fabricated," his representative said. "Anyone who knows him knows that he is a complete gentleman and would never ever say such a thing... He has the utmost respect for women."

Research shows that, indeed, Cruise never made such a statement.

"His mother, his sisters, Kate and his children are the most important things in the world to him. Women have always played a positive and important role in who he is," his rep added.

How nice that TomKat respects women. The Ernie Awards, now in their 14th year, were named after a trade union leader called Ernie whose union members included sheep shearers. He once said: "Women aren't welcome in the shearing sheds. They're only after the sex."

No Kristin Cavallari, no waves.

Fewer, anyway. Less rad, man. Way. What the hell are we talking about? Two weeks ago, the third-season premiere of MTV's Laguna Beach, introducing an all-new cast of Orange County, Calif., hotties, was observed by 2 million fans. That's a good amount, but down 38 percent from the reality show's Season 2, Kristin Cavallari-enhanced average.

Kristin After Rehearsal

At least the new cast has potential and room to grow.

Nowadays, the 19-year-old is trying to break into acting and modeling, while maintaining a constant tabloid presence. Her ex, Brody Jenner, meanwhile, is apparently getting busy with pal Nicole Richie. Numerous blogs are reporting that the two have moved from "friends" to "friends with benefits."

Does this mean that Nicole gets free meals out of the arrangement? Because we all know she doesn't eat. Ooooooga. As we reported last week, Nicole was Brody's date for his birthday party at the West Hollywood, Calif., club Privilege. Then again, both Brody's mom and Kristin attended, so he and Richie are clearly taking it slow, at least for now.

We think this is great. Nicole needs a positive, loving influence in her life, and Brody is a solid, sweet, sincere guy, one who will possibly feed her in the near future. Why he would downgrade from Kristin, we have no idea. But he seems like a decent dude and hopefully these two find drama. Er, happiness.

Kevin Federline's rap career may never get off the ground, but at least Mr. Britney Spears is trying to expand his career horizons. K-Fed, who made his nationally televised rap debut performance last Sunday at the Teen Choice Awards, is now gearing up for his debut as a TV actor on America's top-rated drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Papa-zao!

While on the set of the show, Federline told People about the suddenness of the offer, and his excitement over the project.

"This is pretty much my first time acting. It's the first time I've actually had a speaking role. I was doing stuff for the Teen Choice Awards and got the call while we were rehearsing and I pissed in my pants! I was excited right off the bat. It's the only show that I really, really watch," said K-Fed.

Fans of Federline and his wife may remember their last foray into broadcast TV, a reality show fittingly titled Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, which aired on UPN in 2005. But in order to take on CSI, Federline knows me must rely on his instincts.

"I just read the script. They told me they wanted it to be more of a natural thing that comes to me," he said.

Spears' spouse will reportedly play a threatening teen who badgers investigators Nick Stokes and Warrick Brown. We would have guessed more along the lines of struggling, hyper-fertile rapper, but that's just us.

Federline's acting had better be better than his rapping, otherwise CSI might be showing signs of jumping the shark. Seriously. Is there really an actor shortage bad enough that CBS has to dial up Kevin Federline?

Apparently K-Fed is not the only one who gets to throw back a couple of drinks with the incredible Britney Spears -- travelers to Vegas can get drunk with Brit too!

Ok, maybe not with Britney Spears, the pop princess turned actress turned wife and mother turned trailer trash train wreck herself. But you can get absolutely annihilated on about 8-9 of the cocktails called The Britney Spears, offered by a popular Sin City hot spot.

Adam Carolla and Britney Spears

Clint Thoman, a bartender at TAO at Vegas' Venetian (the same place where Ron Jeremy porked K-Fed's mom), created the drink, which consists of Stoli Raspberry vodka, fresh raspberries, lemon wedges, sugar, sour mix and 7-Up.

Thoman tells Vegas' Celebrity Week that he got the idea to mix up the concoction because "Britney is a down home sort of girl from the south. I figured she could appreciate this."

Well, maybe once she cranks out Sean Preston's little brother or sister she can. Until then, she'll just have to wash down her Cheetos with Mountain Dew. Don't white trash people do that?

The Gossip is totally going to get housed on Britney Spears the next time we're in Vegas. Which may be never, until we can generate some more ad revenue. For now, we'll just have to settle for PBR cans and staring at our circa 1999 Brit poster. Ooga!

We've seen the motivational words of Kate Bosworth, Lindsay Lohan et al., and found ourselves deeply touched by their wisdom. But these two ultra-thin vixens aren't the only celebs with inspiring stories from which our souls can derive strength.

While getting the pink slip from your movie company after pissing off the boss' wife doesn't make for a good week, you won't see any hangdog expressions on Tom Cruise. Oh no. Behold, Tom in all his glory, his relentless energy and indomitable shining through in spite of his obvious mental handicap. It's really quite moving.

Not His Best Look
