But it's actually a different star, one whose personal life has been even more tumultuous of late. Britney Spears, who can't go five minutes without bawling on TV, banishing her deadbeat husband to the basement or dropping her infant son, was photographed looking startlingly different yesterday:

A week after her emotional interview with Matt Lauer, the amazing Britney Spears has graced the cover of Us Magazine for what must be the 120th consecutive week. Only this time around, the popular publication has plenty of positive press to push.

Brit and penny-pinching hubby Kevin Federline apparently patched things up during a quick vacation to Miami Beach, where they were seen frolicking in the surf and playing in the sand with their 10-month old son, Sean Preston.

Three former security guards claim Britney Spears owes them overtime back pay, according to the Associated Press. A judge ruled that the trio must settle the dispute with the embattled pop princess through arbitration, according to People.

Silas Dukes, Lonnie DeShawn Jones and Randy Jones allege in their lawsuit, filed this March, that two of Spears' companies -- Britney Brands Inc. and Britney Touring Inc. -- hired them to provide security for the 24-year old singer and her home. They were to be paid a salary of $2,400-3,350 a week.

The New York Post is reporting that the... how shall we put it... less-than-polished appearance / performance by Britney Spears on Dateline NBC (right) was the result of the pregnant pop princess being left to her own devices.

"Neither of her publicists showed up," a source, who said Spears insisted on doing her own hair and makeup, told the publication. "When [the NBC crew] got there, they thought they had the wrong day. No one was there to rein things in."

Looks like Britney Spears just got dumped.

By Madonna. The two became fast friends (and the obsession of adolescent males across the world) with their 2003 lip lock at the MTV Video Music Awards. It was a moment that a pair of recent Bess Kiss award winners would surely appreciate.

It's official. The wait is over and the US Weekly clock (which reached 78 days plus) can be retired. Britney and K-Fed were finally photographed together today as the one who wears the pants in the relationship apparently let the white trash, aspiring rapper out of the basement.

Kevin Federline has garnered his share of detractors over the past couple of years. You can now add Janice Dickinson to that list.

Yes, the former model (right) and judge on America's Next Top Model has lashed out at Federline and his wife of 20 months, Britney Spears. Janice thinks Britney needs an image overhaul and should dump husband her white trash husband immediately.
