If you thought this couldn't get weirder, you don't read enough Britney Spears news. But even we'll admit that this developing story is beyond bizarre.

After being taken from her home, sources inside UCLA Medical Center say Britney Spears checked into the facility this morning using an alias.

The sources say Britney said she was on Adderall, a stimulant used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder, and was taking up to 10 laxatives a day.

While Spears was described as "calm" this time (unlike January 3), for a time she was hurling profanities at her parents and staff.

When she was admitted, Britney accused her mom, Lynne Spears of "sleeping with my boyfriend." She wasn't specific on who she was referring to.

Adnan Ghalib? Sam Lutfi? Robbie Carrico? One can only guess.

TMZ also reports Britney's parents have made progress in the tug of war with Sam Lutfi over who's calling the shots when it comes to Brit's treatment.

UCLA is "fully cooperating" with Lynne and Jamie Spears in the treatment of Britney, however, a judge must still an order as to who has control.

Britney Spears - shown here arguing with Sam Lutfi this week - has been spiraling downward for months. Her family has worked hard to get her into treatment.

Also, Us Weekly reports that Britney Spears' inner circle chose to admit her to UCLA Medical Center because of its experience in treating bipolar disorder.

"Her lawyers and doctors were working with UCLA," a source cited by the celebrity news site says. "They were ready and had everything in place."

The facility is better prepared to treat the troubled singer than L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was hospitalized January 3-4.

"When she went to Cedars-Sinai they weren't ready for her," a source says.

"They have a much stricter unit at UCLA Medical Center and treat bipolar cases regularly. This is a serious unit she's on."

Britney Spears, who sources report has not slept in days, is under a "mental health evaluation hold" - commonly known as a "5150" - meaning she can be held for up to 72 hours if professionals deem her a danger to herself or others.

After those 72 hours of treatment, a patient's family can seek a 14-day extended evaluation or the patient himself/herself can decide to seek further treatment, according to the California Department of Mental Health.

Heading for The Hills? Don't forget your party hat â€" that was the message for guests at Lauren Conrad's 22nd birthday bash this week.

NOTE: Unlike Justin Timberlake, who actually turned 27 today (woo!), Lauren Conrad's birthday isn't until tomorrow (February 1).

But hey, why not get a head start, right?

Right. LC celebrated with her (predominantly female) posse at Hollywood hot spot Katsuya. But it wasn't all play for the reality TV star.

She stars on The Hills, after all, so crew members arrived almost an hour before Lauren Conrad's 9:45 p.m. appearance at the venue to smooth out technical issues and set up their shots â€" standard operating procedure.

When the guests arrived â€" including Lauren's old friend and new roommate Lauren Bosworth (a.k.a. "Lo," above) and Whitney Port â€" they were wearing party hats, and kept them while enjoying edamame, spicy tuna and birthday cake.

"The group toasted Conrad's birthday during their meal and couldn't have looked happier together," a witness reports.

As for the birthday girl? Lauren Conrad sipped a watermelon-cucumber mojito and "was just chatting with all of her friends and [smiling]."

After cake was served, the party dispersed and The Hills gals worked some set-ups with the crew for the show's new season. We can't wait!

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 ... 

Hayden Looks Down

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

On the left, Carrie Underwood boy-toy Chace Crawford (of Gossip Girl) and Heroes hottie Hayden Panettiere cuddle up. Platonically, of course.

On the right, Heroes' Kristen Bell leans on One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush (who, like Underwood, dated Tony Romo), while Gossip Girl's Blake Lively and Ugly Betty's Becki Newton talk it up and share some fashion advice.

There's no debating how good looking Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey are together.

The two are seen here outside the premiere for McConaughey's new movie, Fool's Gold. They're also expecting a baby in the next few months, one that may rival anything Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry churn out in terms of sheer beauty.

McConaughey Clan

But the life of these stars is far from perfect: they lack a viable nickname. McConAlves? AlConaughey? Mamila?

They all lack the grace and sensibility of Brangelina, Zanessa or even Kurban. Therefore, celebrity gossip followers, the couple needs your help:

Send us your best nickname for Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey. We'll pass it on to the pair and see if it sticks.

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...

Here's the good news, High School Musical fans: the cast of your favorite TV movie really does get along well.

"High School Musical' is unlike anything. No one can fully understand. It's just all of us in a group having fun," Zac Efron recently told MTV. "We really became best friends during this project, the whole cast. It's like not even work. We just have the time of our lives out there."

Hottest Under 25

Now, though, prepare yourselves for the awful news: High School Musical 3 will be the final performance for these stars together.

"This is going to be the farewell to the East High Wildcats for a while. Senior year, graduation, this movie is the climax, it's the third act, this is the legacy that we leave on East High," Efron said. "I think it's going to be a good way to go out with a bang."

Fortunately, we'll still be able to ogle Zac in upcoming movies such as Me and Orson Welles and Seventeen.

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!

 [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dprQVQ3wOU[/youtube]

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 ...

To say that Eva Longoria is supportive of Jessica Alba as a mother might be more of an understatement than to say American Idol has a few fans.

"She's going to be amazing!" Longoria told People magazine at the premiere of her new comedy Over Her Dead Body.

Tony Parker's gorgeous wife added: "She has to be one of the most compassionate, loving people you've ever met, and she is going to raise the most awesome human being in this world!"

Moreover, Longoria is a huge fan of Cash Warren as a great match for Alba.

"Cash has to be another amazing human being," she said. "So the two together â€" it's a no-brainer!"
