Los Angeles courtroom Commissioner Reva Goetz ordered the co-conservatorship of Britney Spears to continue, with her father, Jamie Spears, in control of her life.

Jamie will get $16,000 a month for his duties as conservator of Brit. Not a bad deal, but he does make her personal, financial and medical decisions 24/7/365.

In short, he works hard for the money.

Goetz also ordered the co-conservator of Britney, aptly-named lawyer Andrew Wallet, to be paid $174,569.10 for services rendered from July-November 2009.

The judge didn't specify how long the conservatorship will remain in place, but lawyers involved expect it to last somewhere between six months and a year.

Probably for the best. We know Jason Trawick is a great influence and she's a lot better now, but we're not sure she's capable of runnin' wild and free just yet ...

Still Shackled

Jamie Spears still controls this. He might want to hire a stylist.

We reported two weeks ago that Britney sought to end the conservatorship. Either that was untrue, she was overruled, or there's an end in sight (just not now).

Other issues concerned continuing to seal all medical and certain business transactions because of "trade secrets," so that Britney's treatment stays confidential.

The judge also increased the bond for the conservatorship from $1 million to $25 million. That way, if anything happened Britney's money she would be covered.

Samuel Ingham, a court appointed attorney for Britney Spears, said in court that, "She [Britney] accepted the decisions as filed and had no objection to it."

The next court hearing in the Britney case is scheduled for January 14. Fees for Laura Wasser, the star's divorce/custody attorney, will be dealt with then.

Hailey Glassman wants 2010 to be drama-free. That means her resolution is to be Jon Gosselin-free. Now that's a New Year's goal we can get behind!

Jon's 22-year-old ex Jon announced her 2010 plans on her private Twitter account, which THG is lucky enough to have access to. We're totes friends.

"My New years resolution is to finally stand up for myself, not let myself be controled+manipulated by Jon," she wrote, "I wish for him out of my life."

Maybe she should also resolve to use spell check.

Glassman has said on numerous occasions that she was "emotionally abused" by Jon Gosselin during the relationship and that he would throw "mantrums" at her.

Hailey Glassman is turning over a new, Jon-free leaf.

As recently as December 8, Glassman told Radar Online that she was furious to learn the truth about Gosselin's fling with Star magazine reporter Kate Major.

"I'm mind boggled and hurt by it," she said, noting that she awkwardly still lives with Jon in New York. "He still lies to me about it and denies it to this day."

But Hailey Glassman, who was recently seen kissing Damon Feldman, is moving on, and moving out ... of the Manhattan apartment she shared with Jon.

She also wants to lose some weight!

"Moving into my new place! :-)," she Twittered, "and another resolution is what every womens says "Get back into shape".-lol.Ladies lets all succeed together."

Again with the spell check. Just saying.

She's known for her large breasts and rich French husband.

But Salma Hayek has made news over the last couple months for two other reasons:

  1. She guest-starred on 30 Rock in a hilarious role as Jack Donaghy's girlfriend;
  2. She changed her hairstyle.

While the sitcom stint resulted in a few of the funniest scenes on TV, the change to Hayek's appearance as led to an Internet uproar.

Fans are split on whether they prefer the actress with long hair or with a bob. Compare the looks below and decide for yourself:

  • Salma Hayek Lace Dress
  • Salma Hayek Golden Globes Dress

Which hairstyle is most beautiful?

Officials planned to keep the details of Brittany Murphy's death classified until the official autopsy results were determined and could be released in 4-6 weeks.

Only someone apparently forgot to tell the biggest celeb news site. Now the L.A. County Coroner's Office wants to know how detailed report ended up on TMZ.

The site reported Monday that it had obtained notes laying out a timeline of Sunday morning of Murphy's death - and the long list of meds in Murphy's house.

Now someone wants TMZ's head (and that of their mole) on a platter. And we thought one of our editors was upset over their proposed TMZsports.com site.

The agency's chief investigator, Ed Winter, told E! News that no one authorized the disclosure of such information and he wants to know who's responsible.

"The investigator did not release this, nor did he talk to anybody," said Winter.

Information on Brittany Murphy's final hours was leaked yesterday.

"Where did this come from? Neither Chief [Coroner Craig] Harvey nor I released the information. I don't even know if we provided LAPD with a copy yet."

Winter said he had seen the notes TMZ quoted and was not able to verify their authenticity, but we'd say there's a pretty good chance they're very accurate.

After all, we've seen that site come up with stuff out of nowhere many times before that turned out to be true - Elin Woods' fight with Tiger comes to mind.

Winter did not say if the prescription medications listed in the documents matched what his team found, or if he feels they led to Murphy's heart attack.

"I hadn't even seen the list of the possible drugs," he said. "I didn't have any notes and I have not checked the evidence log. I really don't even know."

We're less than a month away from the premiere of American Idol season nine.

While the major show news over the last few months involved Ellen DeGeneres as the new judge; the latest buzz regarding the competition revolves around the man that truly makes the series what it is: Simon Cowell.

According to Simon's brother Tony, a radio personality with a weekly podcast: “A press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everybody expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of ‘X Factor’ to U.S. TV in 2011.”

If true, that would make this Cowell's final season as a panelist. Would you even watch American Idol if he left?

Simon

Regarding the season itself, Fox announced a few key dates for it this week:

  • January 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27; February 2, 3: Nationwide auditions for Hollywood. Rotating guest judges will include Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Joe Jonas, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and Shania Twain.
  • February 9: Hollywood rounds. DeGeneres debuts.
  • February 17: 24 semifinalists announced.
  • March 16: 12 finalists announced.

Also of note: there will be no Wild Card round this year, as the controversial addition to last season's Idol gave the judges the power to keep one contestant on even after he/she was voted off by viewers.

Remember: THG is your destination for complete American Idol recaps, videos and commentaries once the season begins!

Clifford Harri, a.k.a. rapper T.I., was released from prison in Arkansas yesterday after seven months behind bars. He'll be living in a halfway house now.

T.I. was sentenced to 366 days in the Forrest City prison after he was busted in 2007 for sending his bodyguard out to buy machine guns and silencers.

Steve Sadow, his attorney, told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that the troubled star was going to report to Dismas Charities Atlanta West in Georgia.

That's where he'll be living in halfway house for the next three months.

After his sentence is completed, T.I. still has to complete 500 hours of community service and 23 days of home incarceration for the weapons charges.

T.I. is that much closer to becoming a free man.

Prisoners sentenced to 366 days are eligible for a 54-day sentence reduction for good behavior and for a transfer to a halfway house, which T.I. got.

It all seems to have worked out well for the platinum-selling artist, who has 32 past arrests for weapons violations and a conviction for dealing crack.

What could have been a 10-year term was reduced by a plea agreement, in which the rapper was asked to publicly speak about the error of his ways.

That included talking to youth groups about avoiding the life he has led, and a bonus MTV series (which did not count), T.I.'s Road to Redemption.

Not a bad way to redeem yourself with the justice system or the public.

According to reports, Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler has entered a rehab facility for pain management and an addiction to prescription painkillers.

Is he taking a cue from Tiger Woods? No, the 61-year-old rocker is just feeling the collective pain resulting from 10 years of performance injuries.

The most recent of which? A fall from the stage in August.

"With the help of my family and team of medical professionals, I am taking responsibility for the management of my pain," Tyler said in a statement.

"I love Aerosmith; I love performing. I am grateful for all of the support and love I am receiving and am committed to getting things taken care of."

Steven Tyler is getting help for painkiller addiction.

"I am eager to be back on the stage and in the recording studio with my bandmates Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford."

His daughter, Liv Tyler says, "My family and I are in complete support of my dad's decision to seek treatment. He is a deeply courageous man."

"We love him and are so proud that he is getting help to balance his pain management, not just for himself but for his family, friends and fans."

Here's wishing Steve a prompt, successful recovery.

Women throughout America - at least those that don't work as cocktail waitresses in Las Vegas - already hate Tiger Woods.

It sounds like professional athletes will soon feel the same way.

According to various sources, Warner Brothers has registered TMZSports.com, a sports-themed domain meant to serve as complement to its popular celebrity gossip website.

Insiders say this spin-off was planned long before Woods - and his wayward driver - made it clear just how much the public is interested in the private lives of sports stars. But it's safe to assume Tiger's nine-inch iron play helped speed along the decision.

Meanwhile, that sound you hear? It's the furious deletion of names/numbers from the cell phones of athletes all over the world.

Who has the most to fear if TMZ Sports comes to fruition? Handsome stars with exciting love lives, such as those pictured above: Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Reggie Bush and Alex Rodriguez.

Who has the least to fear? The Hollywood Gossip!

We're so confident in our fan base (thank you, readers!), website features (TMZ doesn't even have a photo gallery!) and versatility (why visit two TMZ sites when THG has the latest on the world of sports and entertainment on a daily basis!) that we have no qualms writing an article about a competitor.

How come? Because our number-one priority is delivering news to our loyal fan base. If it's happening anywhere in the world, it's happening on The Hollywood Gossip.

The face on Lynne Curtin? Not real.

The situations she and her castmates on The Real Housewives of Orange County find themselves in? Also not real.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

The legal problems now facing Curtin and husband Frank? Very real.

The pair were scheduled to appear in a California courtroom yesterday to answer questions regarding a $1.2 million judgment they've been ordered to pay to a former business partner... but the couple simply bailed on the proceedings.

As a result, TMZ reports a judge has issued a bench warrant for Lynne and Frank's arrest. Unlike the ridiculous exploits on Curtin's scripted reality show, this is actually a serious matter.

In August, meanwhile, Lynne and Frank were evicted from their home for failing to pay rent.

We can think of at least one New Year's resolution for Curtin: focus more on your family than on fame. This is a novel concept for any supposedly Real Housewife, we know.

But give it a shot.

The shocking relationship betwen Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrera is over.

After more than a year of dating, the couple - who met when Sigler guest-starred on Entourage as Ferrera's character's girlfriend - has reportedly parted ways.

Sigler attended last week's premiere of It's Complicated by herself, and a friend says the actress has actually turned to Lance Bass for a shoulder to lean on.

"Lance is a really good friend to Jamie," the source told The New York Daily News. "He's been helping her out and giving her good advice."

While Sigler wasn't thrilled about the split, the insider says she's doing okay.

"It came at a good time for Jamie-Lynn. She was coming home to New York for the holidays anyway, and she wanted to do her own thing for a little while and definitely be out of Hollywood."

As for Ferrera? Well, he'll never date anyone as hot as Sigler again. Sorry, dude.
