And speaking of Anna Nicole Smith, it looks like the former Playboy Playmate is among the living once again.Â Smith has been released from the Bahamas hospital where she was receiving treatment for pneumonia.Â
38-year-old Anna Nicole checked into a local hospital on October 30 complaining for a pain in her side, upon evaluation it was determined by physicians that Smith hadÂ a collapsed lung due to a severe case of pneumonia.Â But now it looks like the lung has bucked-up and the lady is feeling much better.
“I think it takes quite some time to recover from a collapsed lung, and you have to keep up the breathing exercises for some time,” Anna Nicole’s attorney Wayne Munroe stated.
“But she’s shown a high threshold for pain, having been through so much recently.”
Damn straight, never again will I subject these eyes to that gruesome Cesarean section video, never again, never again.

I’m not sure why this is on the web, but it’s here nonetheless.Â I know you’ve been absolutely dying to see Anna Nicole Smith’s Cesarean section video as Dannielynn Hope was torn from her womb, and now you can thanks to YouTube.
To celebrate Dannielynn Hope’s 2 months in the world, I thought you might wanna take a look at this fine cinematography, preferably after breakfast.
This footage, which ran onÂ Entertainment Tonight, is a bit graphic so make sure your heart is devoid of conditions and that you’re tall enough to get on the ride.Â Hold on tight, it’s a shaky one!

So, we’ve all thought for a good while now that the best thing for Britney Spears would be to get the hell out of Kevin Federline land.Â And it looks like Brit has finally come around to our side of thinking, but why now?Â What happened to the pop star for her to make this step now?Â Why has Britney Spears just now filed for divorce from hubby Kevin Federline?
Well, according to friends close to Spears & K-Fed, the two had a big blowout last week that may have pushed the marriage over the cliff & beyond, leaving it a battered, old thing with barely a heartbeat.Â Did I go overboard there?
Reportedly at a party for Kevin’s new worldly terror, or as other people seem to like to call it, his new album release, Brit & Federline got into it.Â On October 31 in LA at club Xenii while K-Fed was working the crowd, Britney was upstairs, hidden in a dressing room.
Before the Halloween night was over, the black minidress-wearing Spears made a dramatic exit.Â According to once source at the scene,Â “She ran down the stairs crying and stormed out.Â Her eyes were swollen and her eyeliner was smudged. She looked like a complete mess.”Â Did Kevin try running after his upset wife?Â Did dutiful husband run after his love?Â Why, no he did not.Â Surprised?Â Probably not.
Still matters were made worse when Britney started crying in public on November 2 while was dining with a friend at Library.Â An onlooker revealed,Â “She cried on and off the whole meal.”
So, there we have it.Â The days leading up to Britney making the best decision this year.Â Britney, we’re behind you 100% and we are so, so, so happy that you’re back on the sane side of things.

OK, that’s it, bring out the balloons, bring out the singing band, bring out the flowers, bring out the whole damn party for Britney Spears has finally come to her ever-lovin’ senses!Â Tuesday Spears filed for a petition of divorce from husband Kevin Federline in a Los Angeles court.Â The pop star citedÂ “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for such action, although hadÂ I been the judge, I would have been fine with “IÂ finally came toÂ my damn senses,” but that’s just me.
In her petition to the LA courts, SpearsÂ has asked for legal &Â physical custody ofÂ herÂ & K-Fed’s children, 1-year-old Sean Preston &Â 2-month-old Jayden James.Â Britney has also filed for Kevin to receive visitation rights, wellÂ at leastÂ she’sÂ doing this thing right for once.Â
Fortunately for Brit, when the couple married in September 2004,Â sheÂ drew up a tight prenuptial agreement.Â Spears has waived her right to spousal support and has requested thatÂ each party pay for their ownÂ layer’s fees.Â So, no wonder K-Fed is looking for every opportunity to make some cash, did I call that or did I call that?
The actualÂ day of separation isÂ recorded as Monday, the same day Brit made aÂ un-BritlikeÂ surprise appearance onÂ David Letterman.Â I guess she needed a little pick-me-up, and whatÂ better place that David’s?Â
As far as who’s representing Spears in this high-profile divorce, she has hired on powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser whoÂ namesÂ Angelina Jolie, Nick Lachey & Kiefer Sutherland as clients.Â Good luck topping (and trying to pay) for that, K-Fed.
Wow!Â I never thought this day would come, there were rumors, there were whispers, it actually almost happened earlier this year, but now, now, the terrible torture is over!Â Hooray for Britney Spears!Â The woman is finally free & has come around to the good side.Â But I’ll tell you, I think this one’s going to be messy.Â I wonder what’s on Justin Timberlake’s mind?……

Spears has re-invented herself into a much better Brit.Â The pop diva has traded the extensions in for a blonde bob and that black outfit really worksÂ her legs & her baby-weight-free bod.
Congrats to Britney for coming out of the redneck closet for a day at least!

So, umm, K-Fed thinks he’s a brand now, what do you know about that?Â Apparently Kevin Federline is the new Google as he & Prodege Search have joined up together to start SearchWithKevin.com, barforama!Â What the hell?Â Kevin knows that his marriage is failing, that he actually can’t rap & this is what he’s come up with?!Â
Basically this new search engine will give K-Fed fans what they were already getting through Yahoo! & Google, a place to search for the things you want & are interested in, but now you get to do it with K-Fed.Â I guess this is the best way to do it with K-Fed, since you won’t be left with venereal diseases after, or will you?….

Newly dyed brunette Ashley Olsen was spotted Monday inÂ Beverly Hills sporting her new locks.Â
So, really, what do you think?Â Is Ashley pulling it off?
Well, it was a night filled with spectacle & entertainment as the 40th Annual Country Music Association AwardsÂ hit the stageÂ Monday.Â Â Kenny Chesney won the coveted entertainer of the year while Brooks & Dunn’sÂ hit song Believe won three awards includingÂ Single of the Year &Â Song of the Year.
“This year has in ways been the most emotionally satisfying year and also the most emotionally draining year of my life,” Chesney stated.Â Kenny was of course referring to his roller coaster ride marriage &Â high-profile split with Renee Zellweger last year.
“There have been so many ups and downs, it’s been like a huge emotional roller coaster ride,” Kenny went on to say.
One of the most moving events of the evening was when the Top Male Vocalist award was announced, and Keith Urban won the prestigious award.Â Urban, who is currently in an alcohol rehabilitation center, received a standing ovation while his award was accepted by Ronnie Dunn.
Dunn read a letter to the crowdÂ penned by Urban thanking his wife Nicole Kidman, “To my wife, Nicole, I love you.”
“I’m looking forward to coming home and seeing you all soon.”
DunnÂ smiled & said,Â “We love you Keith good luck, brother.”
Wow, you gotta loveÂ how the country starts do it up.Â Congrats to all the winners!

I have to say, they look quite natural together, or maybe it’s just the hair…
There’s only one way to really work a room, which is apparentlyÂ toÂ hide under your pal’s jacket.Â Â Hotel heiress Paris Hilton &Â super skinny Nicole Richie were spotted heading to Hyde nightclub Thursday, with Nicole sporting some new locks.
The newly reinstalledBFF darted into Hyde right after we were able to recognize the new dark brunette Richie.Â
Whatcha think, do you like Nicole’s new do?

IÂ know it really looks like Jessica Simpson, but it appears as if Britney Spears has learned how to dress herself.Â Spears was spotted Monday in New York City as she headed for the Late Show with David Letterman.
Britney has been all the talk lately as she has skipped out on any public appearances as of late with husband Kevin Federline to promote his new album.Â Trouble in marital paradise?Â Although I doubt being married to K-Fed is anything like paradise.Â
What do you think?Â Has Britney grown up & learned how to dress?

On a sad day on November 1, Adrienne Shelly’s husband found her hanging from a shower rod in her Manhattan office; police & family assumed the indie actress’ death an unfortunate suicide.Â Until, that is, 19-year-old construction worker Diego Pillco was arrested Monday in connection to death of Shelly.Â
Reports are now coming in that Pillco allegedly punched the petite Shelly when she complained about the construction noise he was making.Â TheÂ heavy punch to such a small woman, reports claim, instantly killed her.Â PillcoÂ has admitted to dragging her body upstairs to her West Village officeÂ and positioning her bodyÂ so that it would makeÂ her death appear a suicide.Â Â
Adrienne Shelly is best known for herÂ roles in the films Trust, The Unbelievable TruthÂ & Sleeping with Strangers.Â Shelly is survived by her husbandÂ Andy Ostroy and her 3-year-old daughter Sophie.Â What a sad, unnecessaryÂ loss.

Life & Style had this great picture of Kate Bosworth attending the 2006 Emirates Melbourne Cup in Australia on Saturday.Â The 23-year-old actress took to Melbourne a kind of sweet, flapper look.Â I’m actually kinda liking the whole thing, headpiece and all.
You know Kate knew she was going to get some slack for this outfit choice, but she went ahead with it anyway, and I like that.Â I think I may even come to work in a getup like this, though I feel certain it wouldn’t go over quite as well!
Whatcha think, do you like Kate’s brave look?

Ashley Olsen has left the blonde locks at the door &Â traded them in for a brunette look.Â The 20-year-old star has dyed herÂ hair intoÂ a “dark chocolate kiss” color with lighter brown, or chocolate, lowlights.Â
Her colorist Lorri Goddard-Clark of the Neil George Salon in Beverly Hills stated, â€œShe came in with a photo.Â Sheâ€™s very fashion forward and was very specific.â€
Lorri has been working on Ashley’s hair for more than seven years and created the color change over the course of two days, just in case Olsen changed her mind.
â€œColor is very psychological, so I wanted to give her a chance to live with the color and to protect her hair,â€ Goddard-Clark stated.
â€œSheâ€™s a sexy young woman coming into her own.Â Sheâ€™s in a happy relationship and has a great life â€” changing colors is just a fun adventure! She was really happy with it, and she looks great!â€
What do you think, is Ashley’s new look a step in a positive direction?Â I feel this has something to do with that greasy, death-rockerÂ boyfriend of hers.
