Plus mama & papa Spears step out for a night on the town together
Here are a couple pics of Britney Spears with her father Jamie Spears and various members of her security detail as they made their way into the Big Tent at the Big Apple Circus in Lincoln Center here in NYC late yesterday afternoon:
I understand that Britney was on site last night for quite a few hours putting the finishing touches on her big Good Morning America performance that took place earlier today. After seeing all of the elements that went into this performance, it makes sense that she would want to spend as much time rehearsing as possible.
Later on last night, Britney‘s estranged parents — Jamie & Lynne Spears — stepped out together to grab a bite to eat together … alone:
While I’m pretty certain that no hanky-panky exists between this happily divorced couple, I’m glad to see that they are able to remain friendly with one another even after all that has happened between them. I’m sure they are both very happy, very relieved that their daughter is out of harm’s way and is making a true return to form. Who knows, mebbe there will — one day — be a reconciliation between these two … I’m not holding my breath but seeing them enjoy alone time together is a very nice sight indeed.

Whoops! Geri Ginger Spice Halliwell managed to have herself a very embarrassing wardrobe malfunction on the red carpet at the Children’s Bafta Awards in London, England last night. For some unknown reason, Geri managed to walk the red carpet — in front of all of the assembled press — with the bottom half of her dress ripped apart while being none the wiser. If it wasn’t for the sheer lining of the dress, the poor dear would’ve had her bare ass on full display … behold:
Oh dear, Geri. And it had all been going so well. The Spice Girl turned up to an awards ceremony looking enviably sleek and well-groomed in a ruffled red dress. In fact, with her glossy curls and understated make-up, the singer looked positively demure – a far cry from her raunchy ‘Ginger Spice’ days. And then she turned round. The 36-year-old had clearly not reckoned with the chilly winter winds on the red carpet catching one of those romantic ruffles and giving the crowds a rather revealing glimpse underneath her dress. Her unintentional peekaboo moment was all the more unfortunate as the mother-of-one was attending the Children’s Baftas … The awards, hosted this year by TV presenter Keith Chegwin, celebrate the best in children’s entertainment, from films to video games.
I mean, did no one think to tell her that her dress was ripped apart? I mean … c’mon, they even let her turn around and show off the back part of the dress as well! LOL! And how, pray tell, was she not able to feel the draft on her bare bum alerting her to the fact that her dress was ripped? What an appropriate venue to show off her almost bare bottom as well. Yikes. I hope the poor thing wasn’t mortified … even tho she’d have every right to be so. Tsk tsk.

They really love their LA Lakers
David Beckham, who spent the Thanksgiving holiday with his family in NYC this past weekend, made his way home to Southern California with his three sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz and immediately to the Staples Center to take in a LA Lakers game. Here are a couple pics of the Beckham men sitting courtside last night:
With Posh out of the country and soft touch David in charge, the mischievous Beckham boys couldn’t resist running amuck at a basketball game in Los Angeles yesterday. The LA Galaxy star’s little charges first appeared to be on their best behaviour as they arrived to watch the LA Lakers play the Toronto Raptors at the Staples Centre. But before too long, they slipped into a rather rascally mood. The moment David dashed off to collect some refreshments, Brooklyn, nine, and Romeo, six, and Cruz, three, seized on the opportunity to let loose … Then, in case there wasn’t enough entertainment on the court, Cruz took it upon himself to put on an impromptu breakdancing display for fans. The toddler is becoming quite the entertainer and has made a habit of dancing in front of an audience since his stage debut during the Spice Girls world tour earlier this year. David is making the most of family time ahead of his move to Milan in January. He is set to join AC Milan on loan from his club LA Galaxy in order to maintain his fitness and his spot in the England squad. But while David decamps to Italy, wife Victoria and their sons will stay in America after the couple decided against uprooting the entire family. Meanwhile, Victoria has returned to the UK for the launch of her new fashion collection. Her dresses go on sale through her website today and will also be available to purchase from Selfridges on Wednesday, December 3. The fashionista came off an overnight flight from New York wearing a dramatic white checked coat, holding her large red Hermès handbag and covering up her eyes with a huge pair of sunglasses.
Hopefully Vicki B. won’t be off in London for too long so that she can get back home to be with her family while she can still enjoy them all together. Since Becks will be moving to Milan, Italy in January the entire family needs to spend as much time together as they can. That being said, I do love seeing photos of the Beckham boys all by themselves … they’re just so much more adorable when it’s just the guys, don’tchathink?

Uses social networking sites to refute claims of a break-up
Despite claims to the contrary, Lindsay Lohan has posted a message on her official Facebook profile to deny reports that she and Samantha Ronson have broken up. Additionally, the happy couple (despite how they look in these pics) were spotted out and about together as they made their way to the Echo nightclub in LA over the weekend:
This from her Facebook profile:
not breaking up
tabloids and people tell lies- they always wanna see everything and anything
good come to an end. duh
Additionally, Lindsay has uploaded a bunch of new photos to her official My Space profile, including quite a few new pics of L. Ron together:
It sounds and looks like they happy couple are still very happy together. I, for one, am relieved to hear Lindsay refute these claims. L. Ron are my fave new couple of 2008 … I am looking forward to seeing them happily together well into the new year and beyond!

Meets up with her sons
Britney Spears, who just completed a successful yet short European promo tour delivering performances in Germany, France and the UK, has made her way to New York City, NY to round out her promo work here in the Big Apple. Grandpapa Jamie Spears had Britney‘s sons Sean Preston and Jayden James flown in from SoCal to be with their mother here in NYC. Here are pics of Britney‘s arrival at JFK airport early yesterday morning and of her sons arrival in Newark, NJ later in the day:
After watching Britney Spears: For The Record last night, I think we all know what being in NYC means to Britney … and now that she is able to enjoy the city with her children, she must be in great spirits today. Tomorrow morning, Britney will perform live on Good Morning America in the big tent set up in Lincoln Center at the Big Apple Circus. I understand that Britney is scheduled to perform at least two songs on GMA tomorrow but, beyond that, there is no further info. I suspect we’ll be seeing the same Womanizer routine she’s been performing in Europe over the past few days but I’m hopeful we’ll see an entirely new routine (mebbe for her single Circus) as well. These are exciting days for our dear Britney … not only does she release her new album Circus tomorrow …
… but she will also be turning 27 years old as well. I hope that all her birthday wishes come true this year. Thus far, she appears on the right track to make all her dreams come true again.
After the jump, check out a new preview video for her new music video for Circus … More »
The Brangelina brood has surfaced in New Orleans, LA this weekend as matriarch Angelina Jolie (who may or may not be hiding a baby bump underneath that kinda tight dress) and her eldest child Maddox Chivan popped up in town doing a bit of shopping at the Little Toy Shop (which specializes in old skool toys):
Additionally, in other parts of town, Brad Pitt and his porn’stache were spotted zooming around on his motorcycle:
It would stand to reason that the rest of the family is in town as well. This is the first time that Angelina has been seen out in public since In Touch Weekly reported last week that she is pregnant again. It appears that she chose to wear this tight-fitting dress to prove that she is not harboring a new baby in her womb (tho, if it was early enough … she could be hiding a burgeoning baby bump under this dress in order to throw us off the track). In any event, it appears that the family has set up shop to celebrate at least part of the holidays at their home in New Orleans. Pregs or not, I’m sure that various members of family (individually or en masse) will be showing up around town in the coming days, weeks. Welcome home, y’all!!

Get into the groove
Matthew McConaughey, his babymama Camila Alves and his newborn son Levi Alves have made their way to the Southern Hemisphere to embark on a family vacay so that Camila could introduce her son to her homeland of Brazil. The family spent their Friday in Rio and then made their way to Camila‘s home in Minas Gerais. Here are a few pics of Matthew and Camila gettin’ their party on in Rio:
Aww … it looks like the happy couple were gettin’ their weekend off to a fine start. I’m sure with those drinks in hand, they were ready for anything. After the jump, check out a few more pics that show what exactly Matty and Cam got into after they finished those drinks … More »
It's OK, Sophie doesn't mind
Here are a few ABSO-EFFING-LUTLY adorable photos of mama Nicole Richie and her precious babygirl Harlow Winter out and about in SoCal this past weekend and you will note that Harlow has begun teething. In these pics, you can see that the little darling is cutting her teeth on her Sophie Giraffe doll:
Have you ever seen anything so cute in all your life? Over the summer while I was in Paris, France with Steph and Alek, I learned that every single child born in France gets a Sophie doll — like, they pop out of the womb and BAM! they get a doll — because the babies there absolutely love her. I just cannot get over how adorably cute Harlow is … especially with her little rubber giraffe … I’m dying. She has to be the cutest celeb baby girl, like, ever. I’m sure she and Sophie will be very happy together for many years to come.

The Beckham Bunch managed to almost finally break away from those meddlesome hangers-on Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and were able to spend some time alone here in NYC Friday night and all day Saturday. First up, Becks and Vicki B. (who looked like a mutilated chicken in her fug fur coat) stepped out for dinner at Nobu sushi on Friday night …
… I understand Les Beckhams did dine with TomKat at Nobu but the family spent all of Saturday by themselves without any pesky Scientologists tagging along. Here are a few pics of the Beckhams as they made their way out of their hotel to head into the city to partake of various activities:
But, as will all good things, this Beckham family trip had to come to an end. Vicki B., who apparently has pressing matters to attend to in the UK, separated from her family and made her way to JFK airport and flew off to London while her husband and children stayed behind in NYC:
No word on how long the family will remain apart but I’m pretty sure the Beckham boys will be able to find stuff to keep them occupied while the robot is away. My guess is that the Beckham boys will be making their way back to SoCal sometime soon … who knows how long VB will stay in the UK. It looks like Becks really wanted to get in as much quality time with his family while he still can … after all, he is scheduled to temporarily relocate to Italy for the first couple of months of 2009 to play professional soccer there. Looks to me like mission: accomplished.

The happily coupled Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard spent part of their weekend at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA enjoying the Xmas decorations there and getting in a little bit of sucky face in the process. It’s been quite a while since we last saw BellDax out and about in public together … glad to see that things appear to be going well for the couple. Unfortch, Dax got a wee bit pissy when he realized that the couple’s public displays of affection were being photographed:
I mean … I get that mebbe it’s not always fun being photographed while enjoying intimate moments with loved ones but when you are a celeb who chooses to get intimate at a place like Disneyland (with who knows how many cameras on site) should you really be surprised? I don’t necessarily think that Disneyland is really the place to be making out with your more famous girlfriend (nor is it a place to be flashing the middle finger, what with all those young children all around) but that is neither here nor there. If Dax Shepard really wants to keep from being photographed in public, he should prolly break it off with Kristen Bell because, let’s be honest here, photogs aren’t really interested in him as much as they are interested in taking pics of her.
