It's been a(nother) wild week of Britney, and here's one last roundup of stories from today. She's got quite the life, eh? Last night as Britney's new music video made its way onto the internet, she was making herself seen around LA. She was in good spirits as she left a Mexican restaurant after a dinner with her shady friend Sam Lufti, even telling the awaiting paparazzi that she loves them, but at soon as she got into the car she burst into tears. From there she was back to a hotel, but not in for the night. Much later on, she and her producer (and former makeout) friend JR Rotem for a 5 AM McDonalds run, where once again she didn't look so happy to see all the photographers.
As for the situation with her kids, according to Life & Style Brit missed her first scheduled visitation with them yesterday afternoon. Apparently she was at home at the right time, but missed them because her intercom was broken. Even so, I bet that's not going to make the judge too happy. I know it's futile, but here's to hoping that for once Britney enjoys a quiet weekend at home.

The Heartbreak Kid: Middle-of-the-Road Comedic Fluff When it comes to The Heartbreak Kid, here's the bottom line: If you loved Along Came Polly, chances are you'll probably enjoy The Heartbreak Kid. The two movies are very similar: Ben Stiller plays the lead and yet he's not the most interesting character by a long shot.
Sarah Michelle Gellar went feather-y to celebrate her cover of Self Magazine alongside star Connie Britton in NYC last night. Connie never struck me as a hugely tall woman, but SMG looks so tiny! Speaking of Connie — tonight is the season premiere of Friday Night Lights! If you're not watching this show, you totally know you should be, right? I know, I know, Friday night is a tough timeslot but that's what TiVo is for.

Celebrity Style: Kerry Washington Kerry Washington always looks beautiful, but I really like how she mixed it up last night at the 2007 VH1 Hip Hop Honors. She set off her blue and white dress with bright punches of patent color. Yellow and orange are shaping up to be two of the hot colors for Spring, so she's ahead of the fashion curve there!
People is reporting that Lindsay Lohan packed up and checked out of rehab this afternoon. There were rumors that she was just headed back to LA to visit the dentist, but apparently she's actually checked out. Her father Michael has been in town with her for the past few days, and was apparently there with her as she left Cirque Lodge, which has been her home for the past couple of months. Naturally, he had a few words to share on his daughter and her future. He said:
"I will be there in her life as best I can but from here on she's going to have a lot of decisions to make on her own. Now that she is going out into the world, I can only hope for the best."
Sources at Cirque think there's a chance she will stick around for some outpatient care, but she's already extended her stay in rehab so much that maybe she's headed home. Lindsay certainly seems to have committed herself to cleaning up this time, so hopefully she can keep that up when she's out on her own.
After going fancy in Paris and London, Jennifer and Jamie ditched their formal wear for a photocall in Berlin for The Kingdom. This marks the fourth country these two have hit in the last week and we can't even imagine how exhausted they must be. At least they probably got lots of quality bonding time in together, although we know Jennifer would rather be with her family or in her hometown.
Lots more pics of J & J so just read more
Josh Hot-nett (holla!) looked pretty manjoyable without his mustache (hallelujah) walking around Soho in NYC with a friend yesterday afternoon. Black Hawt Down! Lucky Number Steamy! That last one doesn't work as well. Loving Josh here (clearly), but have you seen the trailer for his upcoming horror flick, 30 Days of Night? Um, terrifying. Seriously, two minutes of that and I have a hard time sleeping. So not my cup of tea, but if you like your movies scary and your leading men handsome (it costars Ben Foster, who is some girls' cup of tea), this may be the October movie for you.
Jessica Alba took a day off from Cash to spend some time with the other men in her life. She took her brother and cute nephew for a stroll around Beverly Hills, stopping at all the hotspots like Jamba Juice and pinkberry. Jessica will be joining Justin in Toronto to shoot The Love Guru soon so she probably wanted to soak up as much family fun time as possible before getting back to work.

Before getting dressed to the nines for his appearance at The Darjeeling Limited premiere last night, Owen spent the afternoon in Malibu with a lovely lady friend. Rumor has it that Owen has been spending time with his ex, Carolina Cerisola, who works as a dancer at Hollywood’s Forty Deuce club and it looks like the two had some moped fun on the beach yesterday. Whether or not they're rekindling anything, Owen's life seems to be full of love and support these days. Hopefully he feels that way, too.
